Having Fun! / Re: Days Of OTMA's Lives: The Story Continues
« on: June 20, 2017, 05:20:57 PM »
It's a clear day at the air field outside of St. Petersburg.  We see Alexei standing there, watching as a plane comes in for landing.  Once the plane has stopped, the cockpit door opens and Kole jumps out.  Smiling, Alexei goes over and hugs his wife.

Alexei:  So, how was it.
Kole:  The flight itself was pretty good.  However, there were some problems with the guns.  I'm going to have to talk to the designers about that.
Alexei:  Still not up to snuff?
Kole:  Shakes her head.  No, but I think the guns can be upgraded without too many problems.  Her face goes grim.  We may not be able to stop what's coming, but we can sure be prepared. 
Alexei:  You don't have to tell me, Kole.  In the three years since he came to power, Hitler has kept his promise to re-arm the German military. 
Kole:  And we know he's going to throw almost everything he has at us in 1941.  Only five years away now.  Sighs.  Can we talk about something else now. 
Alexei:  Okay, well, we have to pick up Sam and the kids. 
Kole:  Let's go then.

Soon they arrive at the court house, and pick up Sam...

Kole:  How was court today?
Sam:  Great.  I managed to get an extension for my client.  I think he's innocent of the theft that he's been accused of, and this will give me the time to prove it. 
Kole:  I'm sure you'll win this case, Sam.  You've won most of them since you finished Law School and became a lawyer.
Sam:  Thanks, Kole.  I must admit that I'm enjoying this. 

They arrive at at the primary school.  Marie and Amanda pile into the car.

Kole:  How was school today?
Marie:  Great, Mama.
Amanda:  Yeah, but we have homework, again!  Pouts.
Alexei:  Well, that's to be expected.  Still, you two are lucky because...
Marie:  Rolls her eyes.  We know, Papa, we're lucky to go to school like normal kids.
Alexei:  Have I told you this story before?
Amanda:  Only a few million times. 
Everyone laughs.

Not long after, the group arrives at the high school and pick up Gavriil.

Gavriil:  Gets into the car.  Hi Mom, did you kick butt in court again today?
Sam:  Language, young man.
Gavriil:  Aw, Mom, I'm 18 years old now. 
Sam:  Yeah, you are.  Where did the time go?

Several years before, Alexei, Kole, and Sam, realizing that they needed more space, moved into a dacha a few kilometers outside St. Petersburg.  The dacha has plenty of space for all of them.  It is here that they now arrive.

Kole:  Home at last.
Sam:  Yeah, I need to relax after today.
Everyone gets out of the car and heads into the dacha.  While the girls and Gavriil head upstairs to their respective rooms, the three adults head into the living room. 
Alexei:  Let's see whats on television.  He turns it on, seeing the words BREAKING NEWS on the screen.  Oh no, what's going on?  Has Hitler done something?
Kole:  No, I don't think so.  Let's just see what this is all about.
Announcer:  This just in from London.  His Royal Highness, King George V, is dead at the age of 70.  Details to come.  For those of you just joining us, His Royal Highness, King George V, is dead at the age of 70...
Alexei:  Stunned.  Uncle George is dead!?
Kole:  Yes, of course.  He died in 1936, I mean this year.  I'm so sorry, Alexei.  Hugs her husband.
Sam:  I'm going to call Anichkov Palace and give them the new.  That is if they don't know already.  Heads for the phone...

Having Fun! / Days Of OTMA's Lives: The Story Continues

It is a dark time for the world.

The Great Depression is in full swing, countries all over the world are hit hard, Russia among them.

In Germany, Adolf Hitler has been in power for three years now.  Over those three years, the noose for German Jews has slowly tightened. And now Hitler begins to look to spread his twisted hatred beyond Germany's borders.

Under Hitler's protection, Kirill continues to speak out for the restoration of the old Russian Empire, with himself as Tsar.

This is the world that OTMASK and their loved ones now find themselves living in. Together, they must face the coming darkness, for only together, can they survive the horrors to come...

Sorry we missed your birthday this year, Imp.  The board was down for the whole weekend (no doubt thanks to the annoying spambots that have been plaguing us since last week).

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Anastasia, even if it's a couple of days late.

I heard there were offers from Germany.  Not sure about Irene though.

If the ROC would stop dragging its feet on the matter.

James is very good at historical research. 

He helped me with a story of my own, a while back.

A very Happy 120th Birthday to Tatiana Nicholaievna, my favourite Grand Duchess!
