I'm writing a fictional book about Princess Beatrice of Battenburg as a teenager. It's just for fun, but I call it 'Through My Eyes'.

I want to read it!
Hmm, I'd love a book about Alix focusing on her early years. I don't know about the title.

lol! Well the fun part would be to read about  Minnie and Miechen's relationship, personally and socially ...that's decades of history !

IMHO, Miechen was always in a subordinate position to Minnie - she was a social climber from the word go, wheras Minnie didn't have to climb once she married AIII. All she had to do was take the ball and run with it (or dance at it  ;)) Interestingly, one of the few things Minnie and Alix stood shoulder to shoulder on was their dislike of Miechen, even though both Minnie and Miechen treated Alix like a dog (welcome to St. Petersburg Junior High!)

You just outlined why it would be interesting...Miechen would always have something on the boil....just cause she was lower than Minnie...well that's just what would get her goat and get her to try and counter that! lol! ...I think over the years there were diffrent battles between them , covert and not so covert , and it would be interesting to read about it. Miechen and Minnie particularly were battling for top position in society once Alix trumped them both  as Empress....It would really be a story about Minnie and Miechen since for the most part, Alix withdrew from society . But to write it, one would have their letters and I wonder if they even exist

You know what? It's ages since i wanted to write about it! I really would like to write about Alix from Ella's marriage to Alix's own marriage - her youth & her troubled love story.
Now i'm busy on my OTMA novel and i know it will take me a lot of time yet, but i have to admit my next target is Alix's novel!!

Ugh, well. I don't think there's enough books about Olga Nicholaievna (it might just be here where I live but I always only seem to find books about Anastasia and Tatiana), so I'd really just like a couple of great books about her.

I'd very much like to write a couple of books about a few royals myself and that is my big goal.

I know, right! I want to publish a history book too. Mine would probably be about Maria. She, to me, is the most easiest to write about.

I'd love to read that, too!! If you want somebody to, you know, proof-read it or anything . . . (hint, hint  ;):)

I think it would be a very interesting perspective on QV!

I can assure you you're right. I'm writing on all OTMA, but Marie is far the easiest. For me, Tatiana is the hardest, but Marie's chapters... so easy to write, so full of all my excess of sweetness! *__* That's my personal Marie fan club, LOL

I'd join Maria's fan club! And Olga Bernice, once I get a bit further on I might just upload some.
