Where is Direktorix Katarin Lahmia, who honored the Presipality of Monte-Cristo with a visit?
Where is Fiona MacGillicuddy, who was spying the Jacobites for the 'Hanoverian' King of Britannia?
Where are Ursula von Hetzenberg and her friend 'Schwester Bum' Mary Amadeus (the inventor of nitroglycerin)?
Where is Alisona now? Last time we heard of her, she had embarked a Gallian ship -for what destination again?
Where is the Duchess of Saschen-Vindow? Still alive and well in the Stagonian Palace? In such 'House of Madness' her life is hanging by a thread: maybe she would ask to be sent abroad as a 'charming legate' to better the Stagonian repute; for sure the Queen Mother would support such initiative, being jealous of her influence ('control' would be inappropriate: Ludwig is totally uncontrollable).
The Duchess could do worse than come to Monte-Cristo: we value independent-minded, strong-willed women, and -being ourselves often deemed 'freaks'- we welcome without prejudice foreigners preceded by a bad repute. All our visitors enjoy their sojourn and leave with fond memories; not a few of them are changed, receive a kind of enlightenment / illumination:
- a Cardinal from very far away (portraits before he left Pangaea and when he came back there) on his return relinquished all his secular / temporal dignities and turned his Electoral Archbishopric into a (People's) Republic. And raised an 'Amazon' bodyguard...
- another devout Cardinal is adamantly refusing to leave our Women's Jail,
- a (reputedly) vampire Lady (anonymity respected) discovered here and *enjoyed* sunbathing (admittedly, if a vampire indeed she already was a 'day walker', but nonetheless...).
In the two last cases (some whisper 'In all three cases') part of the blame can be put on our (in)famous zerokini.
Thus, we gladly renew our previous invitation (Jan.06."09 comment) to the Duchess.
Where are these Ladies, how are they faring? Will they remain nameless here for evermore?
