Sounds good to me.  Meanwhile, I'm hoping my co-writer gets over this exile from the Internet soon.  She hasn't been here in a week.

Seriously, RHB, what is going on!?!?

I know what you mean! My phone went out and with it my DSL, that's why I was gone for so long! It was a nightmare :(

At any rate I wonder if I should look around the forum and see if I can find some of the other answers to those questions...

I'll probably do some MASSIVE edits in December to clean everything up, so I COULD just go with the flow until then, write the story, then post it here, ask the accuracy experts to point out the goofs, and use their critique as a guide for editing...

That's a good idea, Angie.

I was looking around the threads in the Final Chapter Forum, and the general consensus is that there was no order from Moscow...

This means that there would have been no reason for Liza (or whatever I decide her name to be) to be murdered by her husband... no telegram means she wouldn't have found out about the impending murders of the IF, her husband wouldn't have found out & thus he wouldn't have killed her...

But here's an idea!

Removing the entire "telegram" idea, what if her husband, still an influential part of the Revolution, discovered that her brother was The Officer, and she found out that he knew, and planned to warn him? Now, THAT sounds like an even better motive to me!

GOD I'M GOOD!

Aleksey

Just a thought, but perhaps your Liza could first meet Olga and Tatiana at one of the small dances Olga Alexandrovna held for them.

Funnily enough, my fictitious hero is a young officer who plays chess with Alexei!

That sounds like a perfect idea! Thank you Ann! Can you give me ideas as to when these dances were held?

I think in the winter of 1913-14, after they had both had their sixteenth birthdays. Olga Alexandrovna wanted to broaden their experience a bit. I don't know about the young ladies who went, but apparently the young officers were very carefully selected for their morals (my fictitious hero was not on the invitation list, as he had fought a duel).

That's perfect! Awww, poor guy :( And perhaps, since it was in winter, Lika could have performed for them as a special, personal birthday gift!

The fictitious Sandor Dolgoruky (his mother was Hungarian) isn't too bothered. He finds the girls nice but very innocent and has a ballet girl under his protection!

Later on, when Sandor briefly becomes ADC to Alexei, (Alexei decides he wants an ADC, and what Alexei wants he must have!) the Empress makes her disapproval very obvious. 'Dolgoruky is very fast,' she tells Nicholas. 'He is quite unsuitable as a companion to a little boy.'

Marie and Anastasia are rather taken with Sandor, and go in for some flirting, but he has just got engaged to a nurse at the Anglo-Russian Hospital, who manages to meet with Alexandra's approval, as she is a clergyman's daughter.

Hey, Angie, how is your project coming along?  Just curious?

Thanks for asking!

Unfortunately I have to start virtually from scratch. I had a run-in with a nasty virus on New Year's Eve and go figure my stepbrother-in-law who was fixing it didn't bother to save anything. So I haven't even touched it in months unfortunately. I know I want to do it, I just need to have a better game plan this time with regards to the specifics of the plot. I clearly have some more research to do about the time period.
