Anastasia,as comic,tomboy
« on: March 14, 2005, 11:27:54 AM »
I was reading an article on Carly Simon,she said that her parents expected a boy.Thats how Carly got her name ,the boy was going to be named Carl,so the "Y" when she showed up. She said, with two beautiful older sister's, she needed to find her place in the family,she became the comic and tomboy.Also devolped a stutter. It reminded me of  Anastasia .

It was the first time I read about a famous person with a similar story. Those beautiful older sisters! What pressure. And waiting for the "Boy".

Yeah, I wonder if Alix and Nicky had a name for Anastasia that wasn't Anastasia, but a male name!
I wonder if it was Alexei? ...  ;)

She must've felt really bad, know what a disapointment she was.  No wonder she felt left out at times. :(  But of course, that made her show what a distinctive personallity she had! :P ;D

Anastasia was a comic and tomboy and she made a impression on people with her personality, so different from her sisters. She was very outgoing, and was not the kind of person that was boring or staid, at all. In her lifetime, she stood out, and today long after her lifetime she does too. There would be even more biographies of her than there are now if she had lived longer, because she had such a personality. She was likely the most interesting of her parent's children.

I agree with that. she was very interesting, and if she had lived longer there would have been more books on her (instead of all these "is she isn't she" books about all the claimants.) And although all the children were interesting, Anastasia definately stands out because of her personality. She definately was original, and tough I've met and read about simmilar characteristics, I've never seen (and don't think I will ever see) another truly like her.

Imagine how Anastasia acted when she got ahold of sugar! She was always bouncing off the walls and being crazy, so I imagine it would be much worse!

You just gave me a mental image I will never forget Clockworkgirl ;D I wish someone would just write a book about Anastasia and just forget about Anna Anderson and all the "was she or wasn't she?" stuff. Anastasia was so lively and funny. I just wish people could want to see that instead of the tragedy and mysteries.

You are so right! Thank you for making a very good point. Everything you said about Anastasia was true, good definition of this topic.

Don't you worry. I plan on writing books on all of OTMA with tons of letters and pictures. Its one of my goals in life. I don't think its fair that there aren't any books like that. JUST ABOUT THEM.
It would be hard to find such a girl like Anastasia. I don't think anyone could fill her shoes. Everything about her was pure gold. Nothing but that could explain it to me.

Yes, there should defintely be a book about Anastasia (only her), even given the fact she was only 17 at death. Her life was short, but it was a important life, with much crammed into it. And more than that, Anastasia was a interesting person, she would light up the pages of a biography, full of photos and letters. Anastasia had little to do with Anna Anderson, but most of the time people don't seem aware of that. I don't believe Anastasia owes her posthmous fame on Anna Anderson alone. The most original, and special of Tsar Nicholas And Empress Alexandra's children, she herself shines through history.

She was an outgoing gilr and that put me wondering what she did when she was mad... ? I myselv am outgoing and when I'm mad... eh  :-[  :P do not come around me... I can broke something..  ;D was it even  accepte to yell and be angry so I wonder did she -and her sister- all keep the mad and sadnes inside? Or did they talk about it :P

I'm thinkin the same way - there sould be a novel about them!! Badly its sounds too romantical to write one -too classic. One must have REAL knowledge about her and others so the sotry is interesting!!But it is hard to make a good novel about them but i really hope someone succesfull and a movie wuold not be that bad idea too!

I think we of the AP forums should gather all the information we have about any Romanov we appreciate and understand and write books together about them. It would surely be a lot better than the few lines they give in "classic" history books. Of course, they are books about the Romanov family, but not enough in in humble opinion.

Anastasia was very special, I agree. But I recently found another girl who looks a lot like her: my sister. Believe me, it's not funny everyday. Actually, she's making so much noise by herself that I couldn't study  >:( so that's why I'm writing right now ;).

Oh, and my parents don't give her sugar to often, either...
