Good morning, Royals. I will send a missive to the princess hopeful and let her know the throne awaits. Hopefully she will show up.

Hail Queen Uplifting!
Duchess, maybe some church in the area would know of low cost emergency dentistry?
It's a good good thought, Princess Komnena. I will have to try to call around today to find out. It is going to be a busy day for me trying to take care of Amber, buy food, bath her, get watery food down her since she did not eat enough yesterday. But at some point in there I have to take care of this urgent need of my own.

Morning, Royals.
Hail, Queen Uplifting! May your reign be amusing and uneventful.

Princess Wicked, Good to see you back.

Wow. Raising goats... Not done that since... I think our farm got rid of the last one in 1988. Before that, it was what I did. :) Family farm.

Duchess, I have no dentistry advice, as I still am trying to figure out how to pay for dental surgery to replace a broken tooth/crown that needs a permanent implant now. (Why can't I learn to do things small? Fricking $2000 out of pocket after insurance.)

Good morning, treasured subjects!

I bring you sweets to break the fast:

(Sorry for the length of the link, but there are A LOT of pastries.)

I am humbled, not to mention surprised, by your gracious coronation of me. I have, during my short 47 years on this earth, always suspected I was a princess, and I'm desperately grateful to learn someone else on the planet agrees.

During my reign, I pledge to create a system whereby we can all wear luxurious gowns for free and to rid the kingdom of Porterstarr's odious pies. I will not rest until the least of us is extravagantly clad and the odors of the realm cause no offense!

I am also, it appears, in the market to hire a royal dentist. I go now to dispatch minions for the task.

Your Majesty, so the rest of the Realm can fully appreciate your greatness you need to place the title "Queen" or "Queen of the Realm" or some other designation with "Queen" in it either in your Avvie title or in your sig line. :)

And as a historical perspective and so you understand why this castle came into existence, and so you can more easily find the proper successor when the time comes I give you this tome of knowledge.


Welcome aboard, old girl

Your Majesty, let me introduce you to our Dungeon Mistress, Princess Wicked. The last time Prince Porter called me "old girl" he was locked up in the dungeon. :) Later, he spent time locked in his closet, but that was a different matter entirely. ;) My point is, you are Queen. You do not have to put up with disrespect.

Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have, your Majesty. I am here to serve.

Your servant,

Grand Duchess Ambrosia

Duchess Ambrosia, your counsel has been heeded. Note the addition of my title to my signature, as requested.

Princess Wicked, I hereby request that you take Porterstarr to the dungeon and bury him in chains. "Old girl." I mean, please. I give you leave, PW, to make an example of Porter - truly, full torture allowed, here - that others will hesitate before indulging in such slanderous untruth.

I'm having trouble finding a gilder for all of our robes, but don't count me out yet. Also, if a royal dentist cannot be procured, I promise to remove any troublesome teeth myself.

Godspeed and crumpets from your queen.

Hail to Queen Uplifting! :Hail::Hail::Hail:

Prince Porter! Shame! :whip:
Princess Ambrosia, I'm so sorry you're in pain. Motrin will help take the edge off while you make a decision.

For Her Majesty:

Good day, My Queen
Good day, Royals

LOL
In her defense, I don't think I've seen her much of late. Maybe she was not aware of how . . . .pungent it can be sometimes with Prince Porter around?

*sprays moose with perfume and inserts can of Lysol in a--*

*holds Ona in lap to comfort and covers her mouth with oxygen mask*

(Truly, I am a benevolent queen.)

You are indeed, Your Majesty. But I am not at all sure a little perfume and 1 can of Lysol will be enough.

All hail her majesty Queen Updrifting. So glad I finally found the castle. I've been wandering aimlessly for while. Can someone point me towards my chambers?

Welcome, Madame de Plume.
*calls a maid over
This young lady will be happy to escort you to your chambers and show you around. I do suggest you stay away from Prince Porter's chambers - they still need airing out while our Dungeon Mistress, Princess Wicked, deals with the prince himself in the dungeon.
