Oooh this seems like the calm before the storm
Well, actually I'm getting everything in place to wrap up soon. I have 11 more chapters, six epilogues, two family trees and two cast lists left and then we're done.Oooh this seems like the calm before the storm
I haven't got any more planned...but that doesn't mean we're short on drama...Great chapter, it's nice to see that Henry wasn't too angry about Marie's decision, perhaps he believes that it saved Jackie's life. Hopefully, serious illness does not strike their children again but one never knows...
Jacquetta and Caitlin's futures I haven't planned in any detail, though I have planned out Lionel's, Dickon's and Maria's. Perhaps Jacquetta will end up being the mediator between her siblings - the one they all write to for advice, if you like.Tender moment for the Henry and Marie there- news like that can never go well.
I hope the Princess defies expectations of the deaf in this time period and does well.
Maria will always have a soft spot for the girls she grew up with, though she becomes closer to Siobhan Fitzgerald after her marriage because Siobhan is unmarried and so goes to France with her, whereas Kate and Meg do not...I love the update! Nice to see the friendship between Maria and Katherine Parr. Hopefully it will continue after Maria's marriage.
A lot of necklaces in English portraits from the time seem to be pendant style rather than a collar like that.It reminds me of livery collars in style, but I am no expert. To be honest, I just typed 'sapphire and diamond necklace' into Google images and picked the prettiest!
Yeah, but you get collars of office, etc. And livery collars of esses for Lancastrian retainers in the 15th century. I see what you're both saying, but to be honest, I can't be bothered to change it.A lot of necklaces in English portraits from the time seem to be pendant style rather than a collar like that.
