My reaction:


Haha.  Although I'm pretty certain there's closure on this (and not bothered, seeing as the "survivors" would probably be dead by now anyways), I'm still not 100% sure it's them.  Let's say, 99.9%.  ;)

At the very least, I hope they are given a decent burial like the rest if so.

The very same!

I'm happy to hear that; I recently got the Sims 2, actually.  Not that I show it off to anyone, but it would be quite awesome to have the palace and the Romanov family on my computer, haha.

I return. would appear I missed a lot.  There was nowhere more appropriate for me to post this, but if someone could just sum all this up for me (I've been gone for months and months) I'd be eternally grateful...if I'd been here when the news broke, I might have been able to keep up, but now there's so much information to sort through.

I suppose at the moment, though, my main question is simply "are they sure?", but it's probably been answered already.

It's somewhat ironic that this the first thread I've actually replied to, when you see how much has happened in my absence.

But I, too, would love to see even your original OTMAA uploaded on TS2 Exchange, and most certainly the palace and house....

Honestly: the best part about her being in that game is that she throws Faberge eggs at her enemies.  Hehe.

And the cyrillic stuff: After getting letter after letter wrong, Yuri says, "Let me guess, that's a Y." "No, actually, that IS a B."

Does anyone remember when I made this picture for (I believe) the Alien Intervention thread?

I suppose it would work as a signature...

Don't know exactly when you left, but we've found out who "Dimitri" is in Olga's diary. Other than that, no clue.
I suppose that's significant enough.   :)

I wonder if anyone's posted on "Alien Intervention" since I've been gone (which is at least 3 months, by the way)?

Wow...I almost forgot what mine was, I've been gone so long.  It's one of my poems from the depressed years of high school, and judging by the subject of 85% of the discussions here, it works.

It's been forever since I was on this and work have pretty much accounted for that.  I was wondering if there's been any major developments (like if the rumours that the two bodies had been found were true) or...well, anything I should know about.  I put it in the "Having Fun" board because it's not exactly a scientific question, or likely to generate them.

Either way, it's good to be back.  I missed all you guys.

Wow...that accidentally sparked a conversation.

Anyways, any chance of that letter being reposted, or did I miss a link to it somewhere?  My Russian's not incredible, but I'll take a shot at it.

After a long absence from AP, it struck my fancy the other day to search on deviantArt (my second home) for any type of Romanov-related works.  Granted, I found quite a lot that are hardly realistic, such as this comical inking of Rasputin - - and plenty that just happened to have the name in there, perhaps the artist's.  However, I did find one standout piece, actually a redraw from a video game (Shadow Hearts Covenant) that features the Princess Anastasia - granted, much younger than she actually would have been in 1914-1915 - but I believe her clothing is actually fairly accurate when rendered by the hand of ~alucard-fan...

And some other items of interest... - Run, Anastasia, Run, by ~Janne-Landet-Poetry - The Romanovs, by *MikeyBooch

You make an excellent point...I suppose I just play the pessimist too much.


I have a blanket suggestion here; doesn't exactly answer the question, but I must say that assuming there had been survivors, what's the likelihood that they'd say, twenty years later (for example) "here I am"?  After all, if you'd just escaped death at the hands of the Communists, who even today have party members throughout the world, would you be willing to broadcast where you were?  I think a lot of it, though, was publicity, and money - although the Romanov coffers were hardly full at any point, especially by the late 1910's.  This is an interesting question, though...I hope some more people answer to it.

That's odd...I could have sworn that Cyrillic could be used here...perhaps it's a certain encoding, as there's UTF, Unicode, and KOI-8 (I'm not wholly sure what I use).

Боже царя храни,
Силни державсни,
Цартсвуй на славу,
На славу нам.

Царству на страх врагам,
Цар православий,
Боже царя храни.

Well, I can see what I just typed...anyone else?  I do believe it's just input encoding, although I'm not sure why...
