Why? So that that the knowledge of such might be used against me? What loss would you like me to speak of? The loss of my mother? I was four and I am barely able to remember her face now. I was told by my Uncle Angus, that I resembled her greatly. Do you wish to hear about the loss of my virginity? It was part of a ritual, my Initiation. I’ve already spoken of that. The loss of my firstborn daughter? I gave her up to save both of our lives. These were not losses. Things like these are merely life’s challenges and inconveniences that test our mettle and shape us into who we are.
Perhaps the most incredible loss to me was the loss of my husband, Sebastien. He was more than my spouse. He started out as an enemy, evolved into a friend and later became the love of my life. His death marked a beginning for me. It was the beginning of a four hundred year long obsession to find a way to cheat death. There are those who have asked if my singular focus on this one man was a bit too devoted. While it is true that I lost my husband, my lover, and yes, he was the truest friend and ally I could have ever had, what they do not realize is that we were wed by the soul, he and I. From this rite, particularly for the Fae, there is no return. I would have waited lifetimes for him to reincarnate, but somehow, that was not enough. I could not, would not wait for what that entailed. I wanted my Sebastien. I wanted him as the arrogant, aristocratic, ruthless, one-eyed bastard that I had married and no other.
Without him I had lost my perspective and my temperance. More often times than not, I had lost my patience with the world at large and showed it no mercy until it at last gave up what it was that I wanted. In the end it did, but not before I had lost a good deal more in the process.

One response to “Write about something you lost.”
I’ve noticed that you have not updated your journal fannyfae (i.e., responded to one of the TM topics) for the past four weeks. NOTE: Roleplay does not count as updating your journal, per the rules of the Theatrical Muse community.
If you have responded to one of the last four TM topics and I missed your post, please forward the link to me. If you have not responded to a challenge, but would still like to continue participating in TM, please do the following:
1. REPLY TO THIS NOTE
2. RESPOND TO ONE OF THE MOST RECENT 4 TOPICS (#204, 205, 206, 207) BY NO LATER THAN December 6th 2007.
3. FORWARD THE LINK OF YOUR POST TO ME.
Otherwise I will remove your muse from the TM community.
If you are having trouble meeting this commitment, but you still do want to remain in the TM community, please let me know and I will see what I can do. Real life always takes precedence over fannish activities. We just need to know that you are still interesting in remaining a member of the TM community, and get some idea of when you may be able to participate again. If you do need a hiatus, please let me know when you think that you will be able to participate again. We can put your muse on hiatus for that time period. If another member requests the character during that time period, we will email you to see if you still wish to participate in TM. At the end of the indicated hiatus period, we will also email you to see if you wish to participate in the TM community. At that time, if you do not respond and/or update your journal, we will remove your muse from the community.
