I do not have a favorite or a non-favorite, I like them all the same. However I devote less time to Anastasia out of OTMA because well, everybody knows about Ana- films,books e.c.t and therefore I try to find out more about OTM. I think it would be unfiar to dilskieone member of such a strong family

I too like all members of the IF.  I find Alix to be interesting and I am very much fascinated by her.  There is also something about Nicholas' character that makes me like him quite a bit.  I am most like Olga, and I have always liked her "the best," but there is no one that I do not like.  I didn't used to think much about Tatiana, but now I am reading more about her for information to put on my website and I find that I like her the more I read about her.  I find that with all of them, in fact. 

I also focus a bit more on OTM rather than on Anastasia, since she's definitely the most famous.  Even on the girls' pages on Wikipedia, Tatiana and Maria are mentioned as being "elder sisters of the famous Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna."  I definitely like Anastasia, particularly as she got older, but I think even if it hadn't been for all the rumours and the Anna Anderson thing happening, I would still prefer the other girls, Olga and Tatiana in particular.   

So, while I do have my favourites there is no one in the IF that I do not like. 

About the Bloody Sunday incident, I have heard that Nicholas and Alix had been told that the people who were going to assemble outside the Winter Palace were not coming there peacefully.  I know that they actually were, but if N and A didn't think they were, does it not make sense that Alix would say that it was the duty of the guards to fire upon the crowd to protect the tsar?  I am not saying that it was a good thing, but isn't that what guards are for?  Protecting the IF?  And if they thought the crowd would possibly cause them harm weren't they "supposed" to fire?
