Ides of March today! Time for Delusions of Dooooooooooom...

This blogfest is hosted by the wonderful Watery Tart. Here's what she said:

You can do ANY (or all) of the following:

Predict your own death
Predict someone ELSES death 

Write your own obituary
Write someone ELSES obituary
Plot a murder of someone sorely asking for it, step by step

I don't care whether you do it by story, plot list, news article, PROPHECY (any seers in the group?). All I ask is that SAID DEATH be either very strange, unusual, bizarre...conspiratorial... or that the reporting be entertaining. 

I am okay with gore, but if you choose to include it, please be considerate of other festers and post a WARNING.  And if you really ARE a soothsayer or seer, keep that stuff to yourself. Nobody wants to know... this is FOR FUN. 
Doom-doom, doom-doom, doom doom doom doom doom doom DOOOOOOOM!!!!


This is a letter that could have been written by the Duchess of Sunere, who might or might not be plotting to kill her sister the Queen. (imagine this written in very ornate writing with purple ink)

 Dearest Brother, 

I know Your position as Chancellor of Ambras prevents You from visiting Us. You are Vital to the running of the Realm for Our sister the most beloved Queen. I have no doubt that Her Majesty could not do without you even one moment - this I must accept, even though I would be so very happy to have You here, visiting Diassan and Myself in Our humble castle. We have, I believe, much to discuss regarding Our sister and how We might further assist her in caring for Our people. 

After all, Our sister has trusted me with Her own flesh and blood, Our dearest niece and princess Camille. She has grown into quite the beauty under My watchful eye, and seems rather fond of My own Diassan. I believe We can anticipate a favourable development between the two of them. 

Have You had contact with Our Mutual Friend? I would be fascinated to hear of his opinions on our plans. Your importance in Our sister's court will surely work to Our advantage there, and Diassan is poised to travel - at Camille's side or without her - whenever the word is given. 

I look forward to hearing from You soon, 

Your most loving Sister, 

Esa, Duchess of Sunere, Guardian of the Crown Princess, Third in Line to the Throne of Ambras

There! Suitably obscure? Esa is that kind of person. She even talks in Capital Letters (or would if that were possible).
