|Father||† Bill Lovie|
|Siblings|| Full Siblings
Alice Lovie is the daughter of Bill Lovie, and Kathy Lovie making her a member of House Lovie through her father, and a member of House Tyrell through her mother. Alice Lovie has two siblings in the form of William, and Sean Lovie with whome she was extremely close with William and he has become the King of Lucerne, while her brother Sean lost his mind early in life and following his exile from the Kingdom he was eventually killed by William during the Battle of Berne. Alice is engaged to Jasper Hale of House Hale, and she expecting their first child which she discovered she was pregnant while she and her brother William were returning from Lorderon, and she is expecting anyday the baby. Alice Lovie is known as an extremely kind and friendly person that makes everyone around her smile due to her endless supply of energy. This kindness was in response to the deep connection she shared with her older brother William Lovie, and the great times the two had together. It was in complete disregard to the horrible and most of the time cruel parenting she recieved from her parents.
Alice Lovie was born into a position that should have put her into a lifestyle that would have left her wanting for nothing in life, but instead her early life was part paradise and part hell. Her relationship with her brother William consumed her every minute of the day and the two were the closest two people could be, but this happiness was basically the sole good thing in her family. Her father despised her with a malice that was scary to behold, and her brother wanted her in more then just sibling type desires, and this led to violent interactions between the three siblings. She and her brother William would become distant for a time when she didn't like the kind of decisions he was making, and this led to her isolation from most of the people that she knew and allowed both Sean, and Bill to further their own agendas. When Alice was 14 she was mind tricked into forgetting her heritage, and believing she was a poor servent girl living in Forks, following several attempts by her father Bill to kill her. She lived in Forks for over 6 years until she was awakened by her father. While she was in Forks she became very close to Bella Swan, and Rosalie Hale of whom both would become very important in the Kingdom of Lucerne, but she constantly felt the pain of being apart from her beloved brother William. When William arrived in Forks during The Journey she and he recegnized eachother though they didn't know why, and also during this time she would recindle her relationship with Jasper Hale. Upon her awakening from the spell she returned to Lucerne and the deep connection that she shared with William caused his mind to remember the relationship they shared. Since this Alice has returned to the side of William, and their relationship is as strong as ever. Alice would accompany both Emma Bell, and William to Lorderon where they would meet several members of the Lovie Family that had fathered by Bill Lovie during their youth, and had been kept a secret for all that time. Following witnessing William and Brooke in a passionate state she begins having an affair with Dylan Steinmare of whom eventually would get her pregnent with a child that she came to understand was not Jasper`s when Catherine Lovie tells her how the milk of the poppy she had been taking to abort Jasper`s attempts were always fake. When William Lovie decides that it is time for him to make a major move in the Kingdom of Lucerne it is Alice that is the only one that can help him go through with it, and during this epic conversation they begin to accept that their feelings for eachother may not be simply the sibling type anymore. Following the death of Bella Swan Alice Lovie realizes once again that her romantic feelings for her brother are coming out, and her decision is to leave the capital for a time while her brother spends time with his new bethrothed Leven Martell, and she leaves the capital for northern Italy. Her arrival in northern Italy is met by great enthusiasm by the northern Roman provinces of whom see what happened with Ravenna as something they are interested in, and she settles with a large force of Lucernians outside of Venetia of whom grants them the stay.
Alice is a very beautiful person, petite, the shortest of the children of Bill Lovie at 4'10" in the books, "thin in the extreme", with small, "pixie-like" features. She is also described to have large eyes and long, delicate eyebrows. Her hair is cropped short. She moves very gracefully, continually cited as dancing, with a carriage that would "break any ballerina's heart", as described by Bella in End of Darkness.
Alice is portrayed as being optimistic, and she loves and cares for Bella like a sister, although all her relationships are but a shadow compared to the love and loyalty she has for her brother William. She often ignores other people's advice and does things her own way, which usually results in the outcome being better than predicted. She is kind and cares for those she loves. She loves to sing with music three octaves higher than the song really is with her silvery bell-like voice. She has vicarious fun dressing up Bella, and her other cousins and friends "like a three-dimensional paper doll" and decorating for and throwing parties.
Alice Lovie was born in Lucerne to her parents Bill, and Kathy Lovie and is the youngest of the three Lovie children, and because of this was always gaurded very closely by her brothers, though she was especially close to William. It was often said that you couldn't find William without Alice by his side, and it became very clear that they were very close. They would often sneak out into Lucerne proper, without there usually accompanying gaurd. The two of them continuesly attempted to find a way to get into the Tunnel Towers, in the hopes they could see the world outside lucerne. No matter what they seemed to try the two could never get past the gaurds who as time went on saw it as an almost hilarious game. But each time this happened Alice's father became more and more disturbed by the influence that Alice had over William. There were two final straws that caused Bill Lovie to remove Alice from Lucerne. Two moments that would shape the eventual departure of Alice Lovie from Lucerne, and completely destroy her emotionally for many years.
Chaos of Youth
| The Demitri Incident |
Alice was simply off limits. I hope to god his broken corpse proved that.
As a young man though there was no relationship that could ever match up to the one he had with his sister Alice. This relationship would come to define him, and in subtle ways would be a major source of the distrust and hate between William and Sean Lovie as well as between William and his father. No matter who came or went from William's life the one constant love in his heart, and the person that everyone knew meant the world to him was Alice Lovie, and this came to be something that many close to him told him would one day become a weakness to him. As the two grew closer and closer William's hobbies became Alice's hobbies, and the things Alice enjoyed William tried to enjoy as well. This came to the front as the two came to really enjoy going down to Lucerne proper on their free days, and in these times they would play as if they were adventure's from a distant land, and not the prince, and princess of the Kingdom of Lucerne. This came to become a part of their lives that was a secret from everyone outside of Jasper, and Leven and for them as they spent more and more time escaping the world that for Alice was filled with pain, and for William was filled with regret, over what he knew he should be doing but for whatever reason he was to weak to become the prince the people needed.
The Demitri Incident
The Demitri incident was the the event that occurred when Bill Lovie hired mercenary Demitri Volturi to assassinate Alice. Bill Lovie would send his feelers throughout the neighboring regions as he definitely couldn't use someone from Lucerne, and after talking with Ravenholdt he was silently told no as the man he had talked to was Ezio Ederiz and he spoke against dealing with Bill Lovie although Bill would not know that it was Ezio that had done this. Eventually after exhausting better sources of assassins Bill would settle on a young man named Demitri Volturi of whom had a growing reputation for getting the job done despite the morality of the target. Demitri was a member of the Roman Family House Volturi of whom were an extremely wealthy family within the northern Italian country side. In his boredom Demitri had come to selling himself as a mercenary to keep his strength strong, and during this he had become involved with many morally ambivalent targets. Demitri had become completely used to the orders of others and this had caused an emotional collapse in the young man as he was forced by his trade to provide the killing of people that he knew nothing about. He was watched at this point for several weeks by Alex Kirsh of whom was commanded to watch him and make sure that he was someone who was capable of doing the act. In order to test him Alex would hire a group of bandits of whom he was able to convinse to attempt to rob the home of the Volturi of which was truly wealthy, and a good prize. The bandits would attack the estate where Demitri was at the moment, and at this point the foolish bandits attempted to attack the main gate despite being told by Alex not too, and Demitri awaited them as they entered the main courtyard. Demitri would over several minutes target and kill the entire group with throwing daggers and never was forced to engage them in combat despite their attempts to find him. Seeing this convinsed Alex of the skill of the man, and thus he returned to Lucerne to tell Bill Lovie about his findings.
It was at this point following the words of Alex Kirsh that he was contacted by Bill Lovie, who wanted Demitri to enter Lucerne and kill Alice. Bill was forced to once again use an alias and would travel to the lands of northern Italy alongside his growing Circle of Magi, and in fact the man that Demitri thought was Bill Lovie was actually Kieth Schwartz acting as a body double in case of trouble. Bill would make sure he was able to enter the city, and once inside he was to find Alice and kill her. Told that for this brief period of time the defences of the Cloud Towers would be lessened, and he would be able to climb the walls of the tower without resistence. Demitri was told that he was in no way to harm Bill's son William Lovie III., and that his death would be a certainty if he did. Kieth also made sure to note that Alice needed to be strangled so that they could make it look afterwards like she had hung herself, and their could not be any sign of physical violence. After at first laughing about the hypocrisy of killing one child and protecting the other one, he was silently approached from the side by Bill who pulled back the hood and said the following to Demitri.
After this Demitri understood his command completely and agreed to the task set before him, and with this the five members of the Circle of Magi, and Bill would leave the meeting place and return to Lucerne. Demitri returned to Rome for a time where he fashioned a team of other assasins that he would use in order to enter the city of Lucerne, and eliminate any threats that he found once he arrived. What his assasins did not know was that he was going to use them as a lure to allow him to more safely enter the tower since he didn't have complete confidence in Bill Lovie getting him inside what many deemed to be the most heavily fortified capital in the region.
An Uninvited Guest
Demitri would come to camp a few hours south of Lucerne, and during this time he was met by Kieth Schwartz of whom assured him once again that he would have a simple entry into the city, and he needed to be done by the following day or he would begin to arise suspicion. During that night he spent time talking with Keith Schwartz about Lucerne, and he was shocked about the level of depravity that Kieth and the Circle of Magi were getting involved in, and when he asked Kieth why they were targeting their own people for so much destruction he was shocked about the anwser. Kieth would tell him that they were doing it because the Orcs were going to win, and the only way to survive was to force the people to retreat northward into the mountains, and they would do this by making life in the valley so terrible they would have no other choice. Kieth would indicate to him that they had destroyed Tree Hill in order to turn the southern valley into a wasteland, and the only part that hadn't worked properly was the fact that the Orcs hadn't completed the job and were for some reason just sitting in the city of Tree Hill. Kieth would continue and tell him that Forks was next, and that they were planning to spread massive amounts of explosives in the city, and then light them causing the city to be burned down. When Demitri asked him why he was telling him all of this since it was damning things to know Kieth told him that he didn't think he was going to survive the attack as he believed that William was going to get wind and end up killing him. Questioning why this William was such a threat when he was still a boy Kieth would indicate that he was the reborn messiah that would lead the Lucernian people into the uncertain future.
After this Kieth would leave the camp during the night and return to the city where he joined the other Circle of Magi members in making sure that Demitri and his men were able to enter the city. He entered the city, and after sneaking him and his team to the Sky Towers he commanded them to attack a group of merchants near the tower, and thus force several of the guards away from the wall he was intending to climb. His team would be combated by the front defenders of the tower, and this distraction allowed him to walk by the normally guarded western wall of the Tower and slowly make the climb up the side to the first balcony which was on the ninth floor. The climb was extremely dangerous as the tower had been designed so that no one was supposed to be able to scale the sides for fear of this very thing, and on top of this the area around the tower was constantly guarded by hundreds of men at arms especially during that time of day. Despite all of these dangers he slowly made his way up the side of the tower using his personal hidden dagger tool he had purchased from Ravenholdt. After reaching the ninth floor he was able to make his way onto the balcony and prepare the next step of his plan.
Demitri would make his way through the next few levels of the Tower of Clouds until he reached Floor 17 and came nearly face to face with Draco Highmore of whom was making his nightly rounds of the Tower of Clouds. Demitri had been warned about Draco and the fact that there was nothing any of them could do about the patrols of Draco as the man was beyond honor, and because of this he couldn't be dissuaded from defending the family he had become beloved by and towards. Draco Highmore would stop and look around as he felt that he had sensed someone nearby but Demitri was able to hide himself, and then able to make his way up the next few floors until he finally reached floor twenty five where he discovered the bedroom of both Alice, and William Lovie. Finding his target at last he checked Williams room to make sure he was in fact out of the Sky Towers at the time before he made his way into Alice's room to find her asleep in the bed. He would silently move towards her bed admiring for a moment her beauty before he would capture her neck with his hands and waking her up with a squeak but no noise loud enough to wake anyone up.
He was in the middle of strangling her to death when William ran into the room and crashed into Demitri knocking him to the ground. A fight then broke out between William and Demitri, and in this moment Demitri understood in the truest of ways why Bill had said not to confront William as after falling to the ground Demitri would roll away and take out his sword while William would have nothing but his fists. At first Demitri attempted to bargain his way out of the situation, but he feared telling William about the involvement of his father, and thus he simply offered to leave and never return if William would simply back away and let him. William though was never going to be able to allow this man to escape after harming Alice and he made this point perfectly clear as he spoke to Demitri of whom watched as Alice clung to the leg of William. In this uneven battle William would dodge thrust after thrust until finally flinging a book at Demitri's face which in order to dodge Demitri was forced to turn away from him, and when he did William charged him and was able to take the sword from him. William would at this point with Demitri now swordless walk to the wall and grab a sword of which he threw to the ground in front of Demitri and then waited for Demitri to pick it up before he would reengage him. Now with a sword the two would continue to fight but William was an extremely talented dueler and pushed him out of the room before making sure Alice didn't watch what happened next.William would close the door behind him before dragging Demitri to the balcony where Demitri once again attempted to bargain his way out of things, but William was blood crazed at this point and refused to listen to anything he said, and one last time making sure that Alice wasn't watching William would decapitate Demitri and push his body off the balcony. With his adversary dead William returned to Alice's room to find her frantically searching for him, and when she saw him she ran straight into his arms. William would hold Alice as she lost herself in her fear, and sadness, and this would continue until a few minutes later Draco and several guards would enter the hallway to make sure everything was alright now.William wouldn't say a word, and Draco wouldn't make him as he simply picked up Alice and brought her to his room to sleep. Following the incident no one was told and the guards on duty were made to keep it a secret, and thus no one close to them outside of Edward, Levan, Emmeett, and Jasper would know of this attack against Alice. Even though they thought it was kept a secret the failure of Demitri to kill Alice had come to Bill as he was the one that set it in motion, and Draco reluctantly was forced to tell him what had happened despite his misgivings. Draco would be in the room as the Circle of Magi members discussed the failure to kill Alice, and Draco nearly spoke up saying the horror that he was watching unfold in front of him, but instead his loyalty kept him silent, and he kept his mouth shut. Draco would witness Khadgar voice his disgust for what was going on, and it was this that was one of the main reasons that down the road Draco would stand up for Khadgar when he fled the Circle of Magi. Following this William would become even more protective over Alice, and despite the brief attempts by Demitri to reveal that Bill Lovie had commanded the attack William didn't suspect for a moment that his father had attempted to kill Alice, and the only person he did suspect was Sean Lovie as he assumed that perhaps he had done it out of his continued jelousy over his relationship with Alice.
| Britney Hemsworth and William Lovie III. |
Who would have ever imagined she would grow up to be the girl that did the most damage.
Bill Lovie had a loyal messenger in Arnor at the time who sent him the news that the young Britney Hemsworth was now free following the death of her proposed husband in battle. Bill sent letters to King Jonas Hemsworth asking him if her hand was open for his young son William Lovie III., and after a series of back and forth letters Jonas would take this option to his council, and their would little debate among them. It was decided that clearly this was a much better option then most of the other options so Jonas agreed, and Britney was planned to be sent to Lucerne to get to know William so they could make sure it would work. Britney was told about the plan, and she was the studious daughter so she ably agreed that she would do everything necessary to gain the marriage and the hand of the young prince. During the time before she left she was left a list of things that William liked that had been sent by Bill Lovie but unfortunately Bill did not know his son half as well as he thought so the vast majority of these things were innacurate.
As she was leaving she was forced to for the first time accept life without her family of whom had been her rock for most of her life, but she was sent with her handmaiden Ilana La-Phellion of House Phellion. So it would be nothing more then Britney Hemsworth her handmaiden Ilana, and a small party of men at arms to protect them when they went for a trip to a completely foreign land. Also along with her learning she begin taking the name Britney Hemsworth the rough translation of what her Numenorian name became in common germanic.
Arrival in Lucerne
The Journey for Britney was extremely long, but over the time she and her best friend Ilana La-Phellion would be reading up on the history of Lucerne through several books that they had been given by Bill Lovie during his time in Arnor. Through this they learned the history of the Kingdom of Lucerne, but more importantly they learned all there was to know about House Lovie in book learning. During this reading she came to greatly admire her betrothed's name sake in the form of William Lovie of whom she read all about, and the relationship that he had with the dragons. She tried her very best for the situation that awaited her, and no one could have expected any more preparation or thought by a girl that young.
When Britney arrived in Lucerne Bill made sure to use all of his skill to menipulate the young girl into keeping her purpose their a secret. With the element of surprise still with him, he set Britney out on a mission to seduce William, which based on his whorish behavior at the time wasn't difficult. As her sexual ways moved her closer and closer to William she became slowly quite obsessed with the young prince. This obsession had her go to insane lengths to make sure that Andrew was always paying attention to her, and above all else was always enjoying himself with her. She came to learn all the stories that he loved. All the games he loved to play she showed incredible interest in. All the things she could do to show him how much he meant to her she did and she also silently led Andrew down a dark sexual path that led to the conflict that would begin with Alice.
It wasn`t long after beggining with Britney that he begin to tire of the routine of it all. He came to be aware that his father greatly admired young Britney for both her knowledge, and for her kindness and this made him want to rebel from his father by rebelling from his relationship from Britney. Seeing a distance growing between them and the amount of time he spent with her declined she would try a different approach to regain him. Finding him walking through Lucerne Hold with his sister and Draco Highmore she would interject into the conversation to the annoyance of Alice. William found this brave on her part, and the three begin talking and it eventually led down the road of her homeland. William knew about Arnor from school, but he was unaware of the dramatic differences of the north as well as the true scope of what kind of human she was. She told him of the fact that she would not age in anyway, and basically she would look the way she does now for hundreds if not thousands of years. She and Alice would argue the merits of living forever and it was only when Catherine Lovie arrived to take them home for supper that they would depart from the conversation.
Alice Steps In
As Andrew basked in the constant sexual gratification he was getting, his loving sister Alice was becoming very upset about the fall her brother was taking. She confronted Andrew about it, and the two got into a heated argument which ended with Alice walking away, and them not speaking for a time. With his sister's disapointment Andrew began making changes in his life, and Britney could not seem to get him back to where she had him before. She tried everything that had worked before but it was all to no success, of which included an ever darker series of sexual attempts of which continued down a darker path of violence. She finnally attempted to confront Alice herself but this only had the effect of creating even more conflict when Andrew stuck up for his sister.
Confrontation with AliceAlice was in her room when Britney came to the Sky Tower and she was alerted by a gaurd that Britney was on the main floor asking for her. She went to William's room but found that he was gone, so she went by herself downstairs accompanied by Graden Bloomine where she planned to have it out with Britney. When she went downstairs she found that Britney was standing in the open garden next to the tower, and she was clearly upset. As she moved closer Britney noticed her and bolted towards, and after being told to move back from Alice and continueing to yell at her she was restrained by Graden. Now being held by Graden Britney unleashed her anger towards Alice and Alice just stood their as Britney at first became irrationally anger, and then broke down into tears. As she broke into tears Alice saw for the first time the side of Britney that she had never allowed herself to see before. As Alice went to comfort her she was shuffled away by Graden of whom didn't listen to Alice's desire for Britney to remain, and since she would be removed following this fight Alice would never get the chance to. Following this Britney was quietly shuffled out of the city by Bill Lovie who believed she had completely failed. Unknown to Andrew was the fact that he had gotten Britney pregnant during their relationship and she now carried his child. Despite his best attempts at fixing things with Alice he became ever more detatched from the situation and it only got worse when he grew into conflict with Jasper as well over the things that Jasper had been feeling. Alice continued to attempt to get through to Andrew but she found that he was changing in a darker way and she begin to fear for him.
| The Winter Ball |
The Winter Ball changed all of our lives.
The Bird and the Dragon
Main Article : Amber Heard II.
Her early time in the academy was filled with learning as she attempted to honor her family by gaining the most out of the experiance as she possibly could. She had been placed into all of William's classes, but despite her obvious interest in him, she was kept away by the bullying of the other girls that seemed to hate her, and the continued relationship of William with several of the same girls. Amber though was falling into a very deep crush on William and despite the constant abuse she took from the girl students of which much of this was led by Britney Hemsworth of whom saw her as a major threat to her she continued to attempt to get to know Andrew. Britney during this time was causing a lot of problems for William and his personal life, and because of this he was growing more sad, and Amber noticed this which made her see an even deeper side of him that few people noticed as they were looking for other things with him. Outside of the Shadow Council the only people that he seemingly truly trusted were those such as Marcel Lovie II., Hanna, and Aria Arryan, and Emma Bell of whom were also members of his family, and this number decreased further after the departure of Hanna, and Aria Arryn from the city due to the silent menipulation of Bill Lovie. Even as Britney was pushed from the city the simple fact dawned on Amber that he didn't even notice that she didn't arrive at class anymore, and the usually jovial young man was constantly filled with malaise over the things that hung over his life.
Despite the fact that both of them were attracted to eachother in an extremely strong way, for William the loose ends of Britney Hemsworth, and Leven Martell, alongwith with the arguements with Alice meant that he was depressed, and felt vulnerable at this point. This vulnerability meant that he didn't feel up to corupting a girl that he for whatever reason felt different about then many of the other suitors for his bed. When Bill saw that she and Andrew were not immediatly coming together he went to William and subtly asked him what he thought of Amber Heard, and when he saw his young prince blush he knew that something was there. When he tried to push William on his hesitence to seal the act with her, his son clammed up and the conversation ended without any real responce but Bill had in his own mind finally found the young women that would give his son a child. Amber Heard was nearly as good a choice as Britney as she was a blood relative of the ruling House Arryn through her mother, and this meant that she was someone who would further the alliances of the crown. Bill knew that for whatever reason his son wasn't moving at the speed he usually did and for this reason he decided to intervene at the school, when he had the teachers create numerous group projects of which all combined Andrew and Amber working together in very sexualized assignments.
The projects begin as simply normal projects that students at the academy did together, and these projects drove the two together into a deeper friendship at first. This friendship helped William to push himself through the depression that he felt about so many bad things in his life, and Amber was the first person even above Alice that he actually verbalized to how much he missed Edward. William at this time was very sad over the numerous arguments that he was having with both Jasper, and his beloved sister Alice and because of this their friendship was allowed to blossom in a scenario that allowed for the usually sexual William to take his time and actually feel something for the girl in front of him. As the two became more and more inseperable the time came where they had a school affair which led to them being forced to anwser questions about their first life experiances. When the question appeared about who their first kisses had been with she confirmed that she had never kissed anyone, and at this realization he couldn't resist anymore.
When the too broke apart something had changed between the two. The friendship that they had built this moment around remained but the chemistry and sexual tension that had always been there increased to the point that when they walked back he couldn't believe it when he held her hand all the way back to the academy. After this it didn't take long before Amber and William began sexually intimate. When this became clear to everyone around them it became nearly common knowledge that the prince was in love with a girl, and everyone from the commoner farming in Brill to the noble in Lucerne Hold came to obsess over this girl that may have finally tamed the playboy prince. It wasn't until he had invited her to dinner with his family that the true scope of the relationship came to be realized by the one that may have mattered most in the form of Alice. and not long after that the usually playboy Andrew settled into a true relationship with Amber Heard. The two of them grew much closer then Andrew did with Britney Hemsworth and in this way the two were truly in love though its true to say that Andrew took it for granted.
The Winter Ball
One of the annual traditions of the Lucernian Academy was the Winter's Ball, and for the two years previous this years William had brought his sister Alice as his date of which he had pretended was an act to melt the girls hearts but in fact it had more to due with the fact that she was younger and without the invitation wouldn't have gone with him of which meant that he wouldn't have gone and his father would have lost his mind if he didn't. In the year previous William and Alice had first got into their arguments as he had arrived with Alice bit shortly after this Britney Hemsworth had taken his eye, and had been able to covinse him to go around with her. During this time as Alice had remained alone she had been the source of many jokes from some of Britney's friends of whom Britney had pushed into this as she attempted to push Alice away from William knowing how strong her influence was over William. This year because of their fighting being particularlly bad, and the fact that William was for the first time actually in a real relationship he didn't invite her, and on the eve of the dance it appeared that Alice wasn't going to be coming.
William and Amber would go to a dinner where Amber hoped Alice would be and thus she would convinse the two siblings to talk through their problems, but as she arrived she saw that it was only William, and his aunt and uncle with no sign of Alice. When Amber wondered where Alice was William would tell her that his father had sent her away to Nortburg for a few days as Alice had not wanted to go to dinner with William as angry as she was. Scolded by his aunt Catherine for saying such a mean thing about Alice he was visably angry by the fact that Alice had seemingly ditched him and convinsed his father to send her away for a few days. In fact the truth was that Bill realized that they were fighting and had conspired to attempt to make it worse by having Alice sent to Nortburg with Michelle Trachtenburg where he hoped William would be unable to forgive her after she returned. At this knowledge it became clear to Amber that she could no longer sit on the sidelines and wait for either Alice, or William to make the first move, and thus she went to Alice a girl that she only knew through the legends of Alice Lovie, and a girl that clearly held the heart of the man she loved with everything in her.She went to the Sky Towers on the night that she knew William was going to be staying with Emmett, and when she arrived she told the guard on duty that she wished to see Alice, and knowing who Amber was she was allowed inside without much questioning, and she made her way to Alice's room. Draco Highmore would accompany her up the stairs of the Cloud Tower and though she had been up this pathway many times she felt scared beyond anytime before as she was going to confront the great love of her lovers life. When she arrived on her floor she could hear the sounds of crying and when she entered Alice's room she found her curled in the corner holding onto a bear as if it was the last thing on Earth.Upon hearing Amber enter the room Alice immediately attempted to hide the bear but it was clear to both girls that Amber had seen it, so in the first real communication between the two Amber asked what the significance of the bear was. Alice told her it was a bear that Andrew had given her, and that for her it basically was the one constant reminder of how much her brother loved her. Alice would stare at the bear which was nothing of any great quality but for Alice the bear meant everything. Realizing in that moment how much Alice loved her brother she would talk Alice into believing that she wanted Alice and William to get back together in the way they had been in the past. Alice would only believe her after much convincing as she had watched William's last real girlfriend in Britney Hemsworth spend much of her time actively attempting to weaken the relationship between William and Alice. Once Amber had convinced her though Alice and Amber came together and talked it all through, and by the time they were done Alice was ready to make the first move.
For William during this time he remained by the side of Amber, and Emmett of whom was very uncomfortable during this time as he was forced to both choose between his best friends, and at the same was being forced to go to the dance with Lauren Oakheart of whom he hated, and was only there to get a chance at William. Jasper was completely alone at this point and had as said previously even pushed away Emmett, and despite his reservations and attempts to get her away from him, Alice had remained the only one willing to be around him in his depression over his friendship with William crumbling. Alice came to him with the idea that the time was now for them all to get back together, and that the only way it could work was if he invited her as his date. Jasper at this point was a leper amongst the girls of the school because of what he had done to Kristen, and Blake and the fact that noone wanted to upset the prince so he relunctantly said yes to her proposal. Arriving at the ball everyone who was anyone in the academy was their and as William, Amber, Lauren, and Emmett arrived they made their way to their table and prepared to spend the night enjoying eachother's company. The quiet table would be interupted when they found that the two empty chairs at their table were set up for Jasper, and Alice by the two of them arriving at the table and in an act of bravery they both sat down.
Seeing them both sit down, William shook his head before getting up from the table followed quickly from behind by everyone at the table outside of Lauren who had no idea what was going on. When they finally caught up with him outside he broke down and said he couldn't take it anymore how bad he felt all the time, and he didn't know how to move forward anymore. As the group watched the rock of the group break down Alice lunged forward and took him into a hug which the two maintained for sometime before the whole group begin talking through the problems of the the past. Everyone got everything off their chest that had been bothering them for so long that it had built up into something horrible, and as they talked through it they were all finally able to move past the crimes of the past, and accept that they all needed eachother. As the tension begin to get better, and bonds were reborn somewhat it was a cough from behind them that brought their attention to Edward who had returned from Hogwarts.
Following the Winter Ball and the return of Edward Cullen the relationship was mainly fixed between William, and Alice and this caused an increase in the relationship of Amber and Alice as the two were now around each other all the time due to their shared time with William. On the days that Andrew and Alice couldn't go down to Lucerne proper on their adventures Andrew begin to even take Amber Heard who had a silent enjoyment for taking part in the adventures, but even beyond that she just wanted to spend time with the prince that had her heart. The two would take their little swords and journey down into the city, and unlike on times when he went with Alice the times were more filled with silent contemplation on top of the roofs of buildings they came to enjoy climbing. The two became quite open in their romance as this came to pass, and although Andrew still went with Alice whenever she was able, there wasn't such a deep sadness that he was going with someone other then Alice the way there was when he tried to take other girls he had been involved with. Their was no jealously between Alice and Amber, and she came to enjoy spending time with Amber on a level that had never even been contemplated between Alice and Andrew's previous girlfriends. As time went on the adventures of Amber, and Andrew took on a different turn as Andrew had become interested in seeing the caves of Lucerne proper and he silently knew that if he told Alice about that then she wouldn't let him go because he might get hurt in there. Instead he told Amber that he, Jasper, and Emmett were going there and that he would miss her while they were gone, and while she and he became intimate before he left he forced her to promise him that she wouldn't come and she relunctantly promised him.
The Corruption of Sean Lovie
Main Article : Duel on the Steps
| The Duel on the Steps |
He was a monster. He needed to be treated like a monster deserved to be treated.
In the early days of his teenage years Sean Lovie continued to feel rejected by the lack of relationship with his brother William, and his father Bill, and as time went by and his loneliness increased this resentment only grew in the heart of Sean Lovie. The only relationship that seemed to have any balance for Sean in his own mind was the one he shared with his sister Alice Lovie. This relationship would come to be the only true relationship that Sean had, and while Sean grew to love Alice in an entirely brotherly way, Alice was hiding a growing fear towards her brother due to the manner in which he begin to act. To the outside world and even to Sean the two appeared close, but for Alice she was hiding the fear deep within herself and refusing to tell anyone about it including her beloved brother William as she feared what William would do to Sean if he knew how lost Sean was truly becoming. Unfortunately as they both aged, Sean's desires for Alice only increased and as he was also becoming increasingly deranged he was very poor at hiding his desires and over the course of time many in the capital began whispering about Sean having unnatural feelings towards Alice. Seeing the growing resentment between Sean and William, and feeling his own resentment towards Alice, Bill began forming a plan to remove Alice of whom he begin to blame for everything wrong in his life. Bills only problem was that Sean had a deep as revealed through time a taboo love for Alice, and this meant that he had great difficulty in turning Sean. Eventually as he continued to read from the Magi book Myctism Bill progressed in magical power to such an extent that he formulated a potion that once ingested by Sean it would allow Bill Lovie to mold Sean through having a complete control over Sean's emotion. This potion had been designed by Bill to increase the level of violence, and hate within the heart of Sean and realizing that Alice was the person that Sean thought the most of he believed it would lead to a violent encounter between Sean and Alice, but what Bill did not take into account for was the fact that Sean already harbored some very dark thought's and so while working by increasing his violent thoughts it also caused Sean to become nearly completely unhinged.Bill Lovie watched him the entire time that he basically lost himself in his madness, and during this time he used his power to make Sean and Alice be around each other as much as possible and in order to protect William he forced William on a trip to Nortburg which kept him away during the madness of Sean. As per the potions effect Sean felt a massive pull to kill Alice, and eventually no matter how hard he tried to resist hurting the one thing he truly loved eventually the pull for violence became too much. He stalked her for days each night he found it more and more difficult to resist the pull he felt to kill her, but each night he used the massive amount of love he had for Alice in order to not kill her. As the days went by and he continued to not kill Alice Bill would begin to pick fights with him and have other guards insulting him which would lead to Sean having a breakdown which caused him to go to a local brothel, and followed in this movement by Carlisle Cullen, and Kieth Schwartz he would sit in the brothel stewing in violent thoughts but still unwilling to go across the moral line, and it was at this point that Kieth Schwartz would push him over when Kieth paid one of the whores at the brothel a large amount of gold to seduce Sean and then be rough with him during the time together. Kieth would on short notice set up the two to be able to come back to what she was forced to say was her place but in fact was nothing more then an abandoned home in Lucerne Proper, and everything was prepared in the house to have Sean murder the whore and hopefully for Keith push Sean over the edge. The prostitute would seduce Sean through the help of Carlisle Cullen of whom advised her to call herself Alice and upon this happening Sean would follow her back to her home where he tried to be gentle with her but believing he wanted things rough due to the manipulation of Kieth Schwartz she would be rough which escalated the violence and Sean would let out his pent up anger and murdered the girl brutally. Feeling that one kill would not be quite enough Kieth Schwartz would have his brother Fadril Schwartz bring a girl from the same brothel to the house where she too was paid a large sum of money and then was let into the house by Fadril directly after the murder of the first girl by Sean and seeing what had happened the girl tried to run but found the door blocked by Fadril, and Sean now completely unhinged would kill her too. Waking up the next morning to find the two girls dead and knowing exactly what he had done Sean's moral compass was destroyed and over the next two days he would kill two other girls before becoming obsessd with having more violence and extending what he was enjoying.
Testing the Limits
As Sean Lovie was escalating it would be his interaction with Ellen Page that would completely push him over the edge and lead to his first true demise. Ellen Page would join her family during an attempt by her father to meet the king and when she did she stepped right into the lions den when she was seen by Sean Lovie as she walked with her parents and two brothers. Something about her called to Sean and he begin stalking her for days after this chance meeting and he finally caught her when she went south of Lucerne to a vineyard with two guards of House Page. Watching them from afar Sean was overcome with rage that she had been accompanied by guards and thus he moved ahead of the group and set traps for them as they passed the road. One of the guards stepped on a trap immobilizing him, and when the other guard went to help him Sean was able to secure her after he went about killing the two guards. Stabbing them repeatedly to death allow Ellen to briefly escape but he chased her down, and then knocked her out allowing him to kidnap her and take her to a forest cave he had turned into his home base, and there he prepared to torture her for hours.While being nearly continuously raped by the monster, she never allowed Sean to see her fear, and throughout would recite the words of the Dragon of which caused Sean immense rage. Most of this was unseen by Sean though, and when it finally ended he was preparing to kill her when he found her eyes still without fear and her saying Dragonoph prayers and all of this made him hate her to the point that he he planned to break her. At first Sean took this as a challenge and each time he returned to her he attempted to up the ante in the belief that he could simply frighten her into giving him what he wanted. As his attempts failed time after time, he found his control slipping more and more, and only the desire to defeat her resistance kept her alive. Michael Cera would become a close friend.
The Spark of Madness
It was late at night when Sean returned from his failure with Ellen Page, and looking for his sister he saw Alice walking the balcony of her room in nothing but her nightgown, and seeing her in this sexualized position was too much for him and he charged through her door and attempted to rape her. The two scuffled for a time, and the noise they made during their fight woke William of whom Sean hadn't even checked to see if he was home in his madness induced rage, and coming to the sounds William charged into the room. Seeing the situation and now no longer able to pretend his brother wasn't a monster William quickly beat Sean, and unable to accept that he had hurt Alice, William started to kill Sean by strangling him. As he was strangling Sean it was Alice that put her hand on his shoulder and whispered for him to stop. Every ounce of his soul wanted to kill his brother in that moment but he looked to Alice and saw tears streaming down her face, and he couldn't bear to add more pain to her, and thus grudgingly William Lovie III. did stop and Sean ran out of the room. William would hold Alice tight as by this point guards had entered the situation, and Bill came to room feigning confusion over what had happened but quickly in order to keep the support of William he commanded Draco Highmore to put Sean in chains and lock him in the bottom of the tower. It was in this moment that Bill saw his daughter in a different light then he had ever seen her before, but the voices in his head would keep him from revealing anything real to his children and he would eventually leave without honesty.
William would stay with Alice the entire night letting her sleep in his bed for the night to keep her calm, and then in the morning his aunt Catherine Bell arrived at the tower at his request and watched over her as William needed to deal with Sean. Leaving Alice crying with his aunt William told Hayden Percy to take him to Sean, and Draco would tell him that this wasn't the time and that judging from what just happened Bill wouldn't want him to do that. William would upon his failure to convince Hayden attempt to convince Draco, but despite Draco wanting to do this he was hamstrung by his honor to the king of Lucerne. William would let it rest for a night because even in his hatred and anger towards his brother he knew that the beautiful sister that he loved so deeply needed him more then his vengeance. Returning to Alice she fell into his arms as soon as she saw him, and Catherine left them to go and find her brother and try to learn more, and the rest of the day the two would talk, and Alice would tell William yet again how much she wanted their father to just reach out and say something to her. Alice was very open to revealing that even indifference would be preferable to the way he treated her now, and this feeling only made William hate his father more.
William knew that Sean would just try this again so he decided that he needed to so greatly shame Sean that he would leave the city. Speaking to Jasper Hale, and Emmett McCarty about what had happened they would come up with idea of him challenging Sean and following through on this William went to the town crier the next morning and sent out a decree for Sean to duel him the next day. William never believed Sean would show up considering how skilled with a blade that William was, and the fact that Sean had little to no skill at the art of battle. But when the day did come he stood on the steps of Lucerne surrounded by a massive crowd, and saw Sean walking down the road towards him wearing the armor that he remembered had been given to Sean by Maron Scorpian as a gift on his twelfth birthday. As Sean walked towards him Alice begged William to not give Sean the gratification that this fight would give him. She knew that for Sean the hatred of William meant that he was probably willing to give up his life so that William would have to carry the title of kin slayer around with him for the rest of his life. William wanted to listen to his sister but when he saw the scarf on her neck he remembered the fear he had that his sister was dead or raped and could not. The fight went basically as everyone had assumed it would as William and his vastly superior fighting skills brutalized Sean throughout the fight. William threw his sword away towards the end of the fight and beat Sean to within an inch of death as the crowd surrounding them cheered him on.
In the aftermath of the fight between William and Sean, Alice was visited by Bill Lovie, and in this meeting he set out exactly the future for Alice as by this point Bill Lovie came to understand that there was no relationship possible between himself and William as long as Alice was in the picture. After telling her father that she was sorry any of this happened he proceeded to charge her and beat her quite badly. After several minutes he stopped and realized the extent of what he'd done. Her father threatened to kill William if Alice told William about the beating by him - an obvious bluff since nothing was more important to Bill then the uplifting of his prized heir - and this threat shocked Alice to her core. In fear that Bill might kill William, Alice lied to him about how she was beaten up, and was forced to continue the lie two months later when he attacked her again. After the second time she threatened Bill that she was going to tell William, and that he would kill Bill. In that moment Alice's fate was sealed, and Bill went about creating the spell that would remove Alice from the memory of all who knew her.
| Moral Decline |
When Jasper left for Hogwarts he took the center of the Shadow Council's morals with him.
Moral DeclineWhen Edward left Jasper in his mind became rather obsessed with Blake Cullen and this obsession led him to manipulate his friend Emmett into getting them to meet each other. After their "Surprise" meeting he used all of his kindness and charm to get her to love him and in a relatively short amount of time she was hooked on to him. During this early time as Blake became the source of much attention for the group as it was actually William Lovie III. who first came to her seducing her and sleeping with her for the time in her life which was something that he never revealed to anyone, and Blake would keep this a secret as well as by this point she was beginning to want more with Jasper realizing it was not possible with William. Even as he spent every night with her, and whispered in her ear how much he loved her and was devoted to her he was falling deeper into his sexual deviation alongside his friend William. Despite his best intentions, and the best intentions of William the two during this time were lost without their best friend in Edward Cullen, and thus they continued to sleep around with as many women as they could get their hands on. For Jasper this led him to become estranged emotionally from his love in Blake Cullen and from this departure he begin to become romantically involved with Kristen Trachtenburg, who fell in love with him, and was under the illusion that Jasper was going to end things with Blake so that he could be with her. As time went on and this didn't come to pass, and she watched as things between Jasper and Blake grew closer she begin to hate Blake with everything in her heart. Jasper continued down this dark path, and as time went on he became confused as to what to do as he truly loved the both of them, and didn't want to hurt either of them. At the same time William's relationship with Britney Hemsworth had left his relationship with his sister crumbling, and by this point Bill Lovie was only beginning to plan for Britney to leave as he still had slight hope for the two. William was falling as he was sexually destructive with Britney, and at the same time was stringing along Leven of whom loved him deeply, and while he loved her deeply it was as friends, and despite knowing her feelings he continued with her.
For Jasper this behavior ended when his at the time girlfriend Kristen Trachtenburg became pregnant with his child, and the moment she came and told him was one of the worst moments of his life as he understood that he had finally been caught. He also knew that because it was Kristen Trachtenburg that was William's cousin and thus his best friend was going to be furious that he defiled a member of House Lovie in such a way. The first person that he told after he left Kristen was William, and as he arrived at the Sky Towers he was allowed in as all the guards knew who he was to William. When Jasper arrived on William's floor he was having sex with Levan Martell on the floor of his room, and in this moment as Jasper walked in on this kind of behavior he for the first time truly understood how far he and his friend has fallen. William laughed it off, and joked for Levan to get dressed, and when she did she left his room with nothing more then a sideways kiss. When Jasper moved to tell William about what happened with Kristen William stopped him and begin telling him how he was a great friend, and as William continued to talk Jasper realized that William was drunk. Seeing his friend like this he couldn't help but wonder what was happening that had him so emotionally troubled, and at the same time he wondered where Alice was. When Jasper asked him where Alice was he laughed and said that Alice was pissed at him for the way he was acting. Despite the hard way that he had said it you could tell without any effort at all that William was exceptionally emotionally damaged by the rift with his beloved sister, and so Jasper didn't have the heart to tell William about what he had done.
Jasper would leave shortly after when Leven Martell arrived back in the room, and as he left he was followed out by Leven while William went to the window to look out. Leven and Jasper would talk for a few minutes, and Jasper nearly told her, but knew that her loyalty to William wouldn't allow her to keep that kind of secret so instead he simply talked to her about what she was doing with William. She would tell him that she loved William, and that although she knew that William didn't feel on the same level as she did to him, she also knew that he cared for her, and she only hoped that she could make him feel differently with enough time. Jasper knew that William didn't see her that way, but seeing the hope in her eyes he didn't have the heart to break her so he simply agreed with her before saying goodbye and leaving. Following this attempt Jasper begin to watch William closer, and watched as he slept with several girls in the form of those who were well known in Britney Hemsworth, and Leven Martell, but Jasper also discovered that William was sleeping with others including Eura Clune, Faye Skane, and to the great shock of Jasper he learned William was intimate with Lanna Lannister.
Keeping SecretsFollowing his discovery he wanted to go to Alice, or Emmett but once again was stopped from doing anything by William of whom came to him during the night and once again stumbling in drunk begin to cry about how he missed Alice and was going to do things differently so he could get her back. Believing William at his word Jasper wouldn't tell anyone anything so for nearly a month Jasper lied to almost everyone, and convinced Kristen Trachtenburg to lie to everyone as well about her pregnancy. With no one to talk to Jasper would go to his grandfather and revealed what had happened to Tarnide Hale of whom Jasper knew would advise him to do what was best for his future. Tarnide Hale would strongly advise him to make Kristen abort the child by basically any means necessary, and while Jasper didn't want to force Kristen into doing anything she didn't feel comfortable with Tarnide was able to convince him of the importance of this. Jasper went to Kristen and attempted to convince her to abort the child, but she was completely unwilling to agree to this, and walked out on him only making things worse, until he was able to find her and apologized saying he would never ask her to do that again. The lying continued as Jasper believed he needed to fix William and Alice before he could ever tell William, so with this in mind he went to Alice and attempted to convince her to talk to her beloved brother. Her words were laced with anger towards William, but also were very cruel to the way in which Jasper as well was living, and Alice openly called out Jasper for the way in which he was running around behind Blake's back with Kristen. As Jasper listened to Alice telling him about all the things he was doing wrong in his life, he became distraught realizing about how people were actually starting to feel about him. Jasper had always saw himself as a moral guy and while sometimes in the dark he had realized that he was falling, he also thought that people would still think him a good person, but hearing Alice he came to sadly understand that he was wrong in that belief. As Alice continued to talk about Jasper's affair with Kristen Tractenburg Jasper became irate as he couldn't undestand how Alice could have known about the affair, as he hadn't told anyone. So as Jasper became increasingly aggressive about Alice telling him how she knew, she continued to refuse to tell him and as they begin to yell William appeared in the doorway with true anger in his eyes. For William this must have appeared to have been Jasper being hostile in a physical manner towards Alice, and everyone knew that there were certain things you just didn't do if you wanted William to be rational, and at the top of the list for things you didn't do, threatening Alice was at the top.
Seeing the look on his face, Alice stepped between the two, and basically begged Jasper to tell William the truth, and everything about it because they all needed to come together before the darkness swept over everything. William was overcome with rage, and only the fact that Alice was between them kept him from attacking Jasper where he stood. When Alice looked between the two and realized that Jasper looked uncertain and William looked enraged she spoke softly to her brother, and gently placed a hand on his shoulder to calm him down. Alice would whisper apologies to him, and told him about how she was glad that he was here, but also made sure he understood that Jasper was not threatening her, or even that angry at Alice. Hearing his sister's voice, and having her hand on his shoulder calmed him down immediately and he sat down in order to hear Jasper tell him whatever truth he had apparently been keeping from him.
As Jasper told William about all the things that had been going on, and the fact that Kristen was pregnant he watched as the look of disappointment went across his friends face. While at first they argued in bitter tones to each other as all the bitterness they felt was poured out on the only other person that could ever understand the pain that they were feeling, William became slowly more angry with his best friend, and the emotional attacks became too much for the two to continue trade at each other without violence. It would be William making a low blow at a lack of loyalty shown by Jasper that would truly escalate the argument to a new level.
With questions raised against his loyalty Jasper was more hurt then he had ever felt in his life and before either of them knew what was happening Jasper charged his friend and the two of them begin fighting on the floor, and out into the hallway, and they continued to fight until they were pulled apart by Alice. Alice gently held onto William of whom wouldn't pull away for fear of hurting Alice, and before he left Jasper and William spoke one more time that day. After Jasper spoke to William he would leave, of which left Alice and William alone and they would talk about what was happening and Alice was able to convince William that he needed to make a change if he didn't want this to happen to him. For the first time in a long time Alice would follow William into his room and was actually able to get a good nights sleep as she slept in the same room as her brother and not alone as she had for months previously.
With that Jasper left the Sky Towers and the two best friends left each other to cool off for a time, but while William was consoled by Alice, for Jasper there was nothing to return to. He returned to his home at the House Hale tower, and realized with absolute certainty that the life he was leading was leading him down a path that he was no longer willing to go down. Jasper came to understand that he risked more then just a moral decline if he didn't come clean and repair everything he did, he also risked his friendship with William, and that was not something he was willing to lose. With this in mind he slept well for the first time in months, and the next day went back to the Sky Towers where he walked in on Alice, William, and Leven eating breakfest and would come clean about everything, and told them all and specifically William that he was going to make all of this right starting with telling Blake and Kristen the truth. Jasper would declare that he was going to marry Kristen so that he could be honorable to her, and he understood what that would mean but he was willing to do it so that she would not be birthing a bastard and losing her dignity at the same time.
Coming clean and Consequences
Jasper would go first to Blake Cullen knowing that she would be perhaps the most hurt by his decision to marry Kristen Trachtenburg and when he arrived at her suites near the Cloud Towers he was shocked to see William, Leven, Edward, Emmett, and Alice awaiting him outside. William would lead the group in telling him that they were proud of him for coming clean, and that while he had done terrible things William was painfully aware that he had done the same. The group would hug Jasper as he broke down realizing he had his friends back, and promising that from this point on they were all going to be better. William offered to go in with him, but Jasper said no knowing this was something he had to do himself. Entering the estate he was followed in by Edward of whom led him to his sisters room, and before entering he apologized to Jasper for what happened with Hostella and held his hand out for forgiveness, and for a moment Jasper was going to do it, but instead ignored his friend and walked inside Blake's room.
Blake was sitting at her desk reading, but when Jasper entered she would jump up and come over to him for a hug. As she tried to hug him he pulled away knowing she wouldn't want to hug him after what he told her. Jasper would go about telling her everything that he had done, and despite hearing all this Blake begged him briefly not to marry Kristen and to stay with her, and it was only when he refused that offer that Blake would become truly angry, and screamed for him to leave and never speak to her again. Leaving the estate he found it empty but could see his friends out front, and thus wanting to deal with the Kristen situation quickly he went out the back and snuck his way out of the estate and made his way to the House Lovie estates which surrounded the Cloud Tower. Kristen was outside on a bench crying when he arrived, and he immediately went about running to her and enveloping her in a hug of which he could feel she didn't return and after a few moments she pushed him away.
Kristen would proceed to tell him that she realized that he wasn't going to leave Blake Cullen, and that shortly after realizing this she had a miscarriage. Kristen would blame him for losing the baby saying all the stress of hiding things, and his constant running around on her had caused her so much stress that she had lost the baby, and before he could respond to any of her attacks she would physically attack him causing several guards nearby to intervene and Jasper was sent away by the several Trachtenburg men that were nearby. Jasper would following this be devastated that Kristen had hated him so strongly at the end, and though he still loved Blake he decided against returning to her knowing that he didn't deserve her anymore, and that all he brought her in his current condition was pain. From there Jasper returned to the Cullen esate where he met his friends, and didn't have to say a word just started crying and was hugged by all the people left in his life that still loved him.
The End of Alice Lovie
| The End of Alice Lovie |
There is an ache in my heart father, and I don't know how to fix this pain. Tell me what is wrong. Tell me why I feel like I've lost everything. Tell me what is wrong with me.
The beginning of the end of Alice came in the days preceding the casting of the spell, and during this time the Circle of Magi would travel across Lucerne placing wards that would limit the scope of the spell, and the people affected by its actions. Knowing that the Magi users of Lucerne were divided and he controlled the only organized Magi users he knew he could escape notice, and thus moved to set the first of the runes in place in William's room. As Bill was going to do this it was Amber Heard that was waiting in his room for him to return when she had a truly horrifying encounter with Bill Lovie of whom came into William's room and at first he didn't see her in the room so he had a perfect almost molded smile on his face. He walked around William's room for many minutes simply speaking out loud in some sort of chant like speech that she couldn't understand but for some reason the tone in his words scared her directly to her core. He continued to chant and then abruptly stopped before sitting on his bed for a second before he chanted again and then laid down on the bed. She watched from the corner as the King of Lucerne appeared to be in some sort of stupor, and something about the change in him as time went on told her that for her sake he had best not see her, so while he laid there she moved the blanket she was under farther up her body so that it completely covered her.
He would continue to chant, and then as this continued a cloaked man (Khadgar) walked in carrying a stone and she looked him dead in the eyes and he saw her, but he didn't say anything and just passed the stone to Bill before giving her one last look before leaving the room. Bill would go to his knees and begin praying before the stone, and as this went on it begin to glow blue, and then disappeared into nothing, and despite this Bill continued to kneel down praying. He eventually got up when Carlisle Cullen walked into the room and told him that William was returning, and in that moment he simply got up without a word and left the room. She sat motionless in the corner still covered by the blanket as William walked into the room, and unlike his father William immediately saw her in the corner, and went to her and embraced her in a tight hug. He held her close as if he somehow understood what had happened to her, and as she cried into his shoulder she fell so deeply in love with the boy holding her that she simply held him close for what might have been hours. William would leave the room to say goodnight to Alice, and Amber was hell bent on telling him what had happened the moment he returned, but a moment after he left the door to his room reopened and Carlisle came inside. Carlisle would confront her on telling William as he lied to her that in truth Carlisle was leading a rebellious movement in the land, and was just waiting for this moment to strike. Amber would tell Carlisle that he had a day to get his affairs in order before she would tell William, and Carlisle knowing the spell was being cast the next day would agree to the offer, and when William returned Amber didn't tell him.
With the secret kept due to the lies of Carlisle Cullen the Circle of Magi would come together in summoning the spell, while Bill Lovie stood at the top of the Cloud Tower and focused the spell itself. In a moment that would change the fabric of Lucerne, and most dangerously would completely shatter both Sean, and William Lovie their father Bill completed his spell that would erase Alice from the world. As the spell finished, and there was nothing that could stop it from enacting itself Bill was overcome by his hatred of Alice, and in a fit of blind rage ran into Alice's room in the middle of the night and laughed at her because he was about to remove her from William's memory. For a moment Alice wanted to run and get William but still the fear of his death was too much for her to bear, and so she remained calm as her father verbally attacked her. After exhausting himself screaming at Alice he was interrupted by Draco Highmore of whom came at the sound of the screaming, but was sent away on the command of Bill. For a single moment Draco looked to Alice as he had enough of looking the other way, but she wiped the tears from her face and nodded that he shouldn't do anything. As Bill left Draco would return but as he attempted to comfort her she commanded him away, and ran to Williams room where she buried her head in his pillow. Alice then spent the rest of the night waiting for her beloved brother to return home but he was out with Amber Heard and he didn't return until nearly the morning and when he went into her room to check on her, he found her cradling the doll that he had given her as a child and dried tears running down her face. The site broke his heart and he laid down beside her and held her close as he too fell asleep. Bill Lovie would enter her room in the morning to find his two children knocked out by the power of his spell but even in that moment his arms were wrapped protectively around her, and he had to get Carlisle to come in and assist him in releasing Andrew's grip on her. But his grip was released and they put Alice into a sack, and put her into a wagon where she was to be brought to rest in Forks and then dumped on the side of the road.
Alice Lovie was dropped off in Forks by Bill Lovie's cronie Kieth Schwartz following her going into a coma following the spell. Bill had set her up with a job in Forks, at a local tavern - he silently hoped she would be killed while working there - and on top of this he created back stories for her where in her parents were killed, and she had left Lucerne because of this. While William had yet to wake from his transformation she was made to wake easier by the fact that she had been beaten while asleep by the inscreasingly insane form of her father Bill Lovie. When Alice awoke in her small room on the ground on the side of the road her head was in horrible pain, and so debilitating was the pain that she was unable to move for almost two days. She just barely managed to pull herself into the ditch at the side of the road which saved her from being run over by the constant wagons that crossed the roads. When she was finally able to move she went towards the city where she could find things in her mind that told her she worked at a local tavern. When she arrived the tavern owner who had been paid by Bill Lovie went about punishing her for her lateness, and then on Bill's orders prepared to make her life a living hell. As Alice was broken in spirit and mind by the departure from Lucerne and her beloved brother she was not alone in this feeling as back in Lucerne her brother William would suffer deeply as a result of her departure.
While Alice had woken early the same day of the spell being cast, William had not woken over the entirety of the day, and had to be watched by Carlisle and Bill of whom by this point were growing more worried about why he hadn't grown up. As hours passed without him waking Bill begin to scream that Alice needed to be killed, and that was the reason he hadn't woken but this was ignored as his more evil of lackeys were away and those near were loyalists to the Kingdom. That night Amber would arrive at the Cloud Towers to try and find William, as she had discovered she was pregnant, but when she arrived she was told that William wasn't seeing visitors, and she was forced to leave. Bill commanded the Cloud Tower to be locked down, and thus they continued to send Amber, and then the Shadow Council away, but on the third day Draco Highmore would secretly tell Jasper that William had slipped into a coma.
The Shadow Council, and Amber Heard II. would enter the Cloud Tower using the help of Draco Highmore of whom risked his life in his desperation that perhaps the return of his friends and Amber Heard would force him awake. Leven, and Amber would collapse emotionally into his arms as he lay on the bed, as he was bedrock for the two emotionally, and both loved him, and eventually the group was discovered by Bill of whom summoned Draco to see him. Draco would go to the King assuming he would be killed, but instead Bill wanted to use this as a chance to get the information out about his son's coma, and he planned to blame the affair on some of the more rebellious elements within the Kingdom including the Swan's, and Starke's. As it was discovered that William was in a coma the entire Kingdom went into hysterics as the silent hope of the Kingdom was that when William came of age he would save them from the madness of his father, but with his demise that hope was slipping through their fingers. Thousands begin flocking to the Sky Towers to pray for his return, and all attempts to disperse the crowds ended with failure.
During this coma Amber remained by his side the entire time, as she had realized only two days before his coma that she was pregnant with his child. During this time Jasper, Edward, Leven, and Emmett attempted to stay in the room as well all camping out for several nights before Bill Lovie had them all sent away with his Circle of Magi guards except for Amber of whom he believed perhaps could rouse William due to his affection for her. When Amber's presence didn't wake William Bill came to blame her for the coma his son was in, and in this way he began threatening her on a daily basis. At first it was completely shocking and Amber didn't know what to do but eventually he started to become violent and she pleaded with him to stop. The end came when he entered the room with a knife and threatened to kill William if Amber didn't leave the city. Following this confrontation he left her to be with William knowing he had shaken her to the core, and during the night she spent one last night at his side.
The next morning before Bill had returned to send her away for good Catherine Lovie came to his room to see both William, and Amber, and during this time the two would hold each other and she begged Amber to leave as she had heard through her own spies that Bill was preparing to have her killed. When Amber told Catherine that Bill had threatened William's life she was shocked beyond anything as Catherine had believed that William was the one piece on the board that he would never risk damaging, and realizing William was threatened the two understood that Amber needed to leave, and she loved him so deeply that she couldn't bear the thought of his death and she agreed to flee the city.
William, and Alice Awaken
It was as William continued to not wake and the departure of Amber Heard II. alongside the banishment of the Shadow Council that the only sane remaining member of the Circle of Magi in the form of Khadgar would decide to take matters into his own hands. Khadgar would sneak into the room of William and finding Bill passed out in the corner he would silently take the blue stone from Bill Lovie of which kept the world from remembering Alice Lovie, and he would damage it slightly causing the spell to weaken somewhat. The following day with the spell releasing somewhat to the point that the two siblings would begin to dream of each other it begin to spark an awakening of William, and Alice which led to the two waking up three days after Khadgar damaged the blue stone.

Following his coma he would be clearly lost without Alice though he didn't know that it was her loss that troubled him, and in this way his father would bring in Alistair Irons of his loyalist House Irons who he thought would put Andrew back into line with what he was before. When Alistair arrived he attempted to at first get a lay of what was happening by talking to people around the young prince of which the principle person he spoke to was Draco Highmore of whom told him of how skilled in every way the young prince was but for whatever reason he couldn't put it all together. Alistair watched the young prince from afar as he spent all his time with the group he called the shadow Council, and when he wasn't with them he was constantly finding different girls to spend his nights with. When he finally approached the young prince the two would have the following exchange.
Following this exchange William would have a silent respect for Alistair Irons of whom would take him south of the city to the House Lovie esate alongside his Shadow Council for an entire month. During this time he would teach the young prince about what it truly meant to be a leader. He was finally able to get through to him that he needed to step forward and start actually making things better instead of just talking about theoretical changes he might make or believed would work if he made them. Alistair would take the four of them along with Levan Martell back to Lucerne where he made them understand that they needed to stick together no matter what, and that only they could make sure that they were all the people they needed to be. So instead of turning William back into the playboy prince that his father had wanted returned Alistair was able to reinjuvinate the young prince into rebecoming the man his sister always thought he could become.
| Dragon in Forks|
It was like this constant ache in my head the entire time I was in Forks. Something felt wrong but I could just never place my finger on the reason behind it. While I lived this fake life I just kept living within my dreams.
Life in Forks
Following the spell ending the existence of Alive Lovie in the memory of those who knew her Alice Lovie was dropped off in Forks by Bill Lovie's cronie Kieth Schwartz. Bill had set her up with a job in Forks, at a local tavern, where he silently hoped she would be killed while working there and on top of this he created back stories for her where in her parents were killed, and she had left Lucerne because of this. When Alice awoke in she was on the ground on the side of the road and her head was in horrible pain, and so debilitating was the pain that she was unable to move for almost two days. She just barely managed to pull herself into the ditch at the side of the road which saved her from being run over by the constant wagons that crossed the roads. When she was finally able to move she went towards the city where she could find things in her mind that told her she worked at a local tavern, but despite this feeling she also felt as if this was somewhere strange to her and not her real home. While she had been in debilitating pain, and sleeping in the ditch she was being watched by Keith Schwartz, and Johan Snow of whom the two would have starkly different views of what was happening with Kieth caring little for Alice while Johan Snow wuld feel terrible and during the night would leave food in the ditch which led to Alice surviving and being able to make her way forward. When she arrived the tavern owner who had been paid by Bill Lovie went about punishing her for her lateness, and then on Bill's orders prepared to make her life a liing hell.
For Alice her life in Forks just felt wrong to her. No matter what she tried she couldn't shake a silent depression that wracked her so completely that on most nights she could not sleep because she was crying so hard. To add on to this her boss the owner seemed to hate her with a passion that she had never known before. Things became somewhat better for her when she came to become friends with Bella Swan, and Rosalie Cullen of whome the three shared a common link that they all felt detatched from the life they were living.
Stephan De'MarcoDuring her time in Forks while she was stuck without her memory Alice became involved with Stephan De'Marco and in this relationship she became enamored with this boy that showed her the kind of attention she had been craving since she had been in Forks. She originaly met him through the bar that she and Rosalie worked at, and the moment she begin talking to him Rosalie attempted to step in and make him leave, but he was so charismatic that he convinsed Alice to ignore her friends warnings and to leave with him. Throughout their time together she was constantly though feeling that she was unimportant in comparison to many of the other people that he surrounded himself with, and this didn't get any better. Alice made numerous attempts to make him care about her, and many of the things that she did she felt ashamed by, and as it continued it caused tension between her and Rosalie of whome did not like him and what he was making her do. During this time she found a soundboard for her confusion in Bella Swan, and this along with some other things had a large effect on the reason they became the best friends that would grow into being. In fact his behvior became more and more unstable as time went on and this behavior first started out as his becoming permiscuous on a level that even Alice knew was happening. She confronted him on this and this confrontation would lead to the next evolution in his dark behavior.
The moment he slapped her everything changed. She realized in that moment that she was crazy to be staying in this situation and she simply put her hand to her cheek to shield herself from the pain before crying and trying to leave the room. As she pulled open the door she felt his hand on her arm of whome pulled her back into the room and tried to have his way with her. As his hands ran up her body she knew where this was going and she refused to accept this was going to happen to her, and so she lashed out at him. As he flew off of her she grabbed a pole from the corner and smacked him across the face knocking him uncontious. She then walked past his now motionless body and into the street where she stumbled her way towards Swan Keep where she hoped to find Bella Swan of whome she knew would protect her from his vengeance.
Bella Steps In
When she arrived at Swan Keep she was greeted by the gaurds of whome led her into the back stables where Bella was spending her day, and the moment that she saw Bella she begin sobbing and fell to the ground where she was met by the arms of Bella surrounding her in a loving hug. Alice clung to Bella for sometime before she was finally calmed down enough to explain to Bella what had happened. She made Bella promise not to do anything about it, and Bella in a shocking move refused to let this go, and told Alice that the first chance she got she would be telling her father of whome she knew would have him removed from Forks. Alice attempted to make her change her mind but Bella was unmoving in her opinion of what she had to do, so Alice simply clung to Bella and prayed that nothing would happen. But she was wrong, and the moment that Alice went to sleep Bella left her room and went to see her father of whome was still awake. She told her father what had happened and her father did exactly what she knew he would do when he summoned him to Swan Keep to anwser for his crimes. Instead of arriving in Swan Keep he got notice that he had been recalled to Brill and thus would no longer be in Forks.

| The Journey |
Sometimes to see what the world looks like, you simply have to go outside and look.
William Lovie III.'s coma had caused him to have no memory of his sister and anything to do with her which left him suffering headaches and finding his happiness in sleeping with other noble girls in the city, and this behavior continued to spiral out of control until the arrival of Lanna Lannister. Lanna Lannister had been a romantic partner to Jasper Hale, but had also slept with William several times including mothering a child with him in the form of Termin Jest of whom she believed was Jasper's but in fact was William's child. Lanna arrived in Lucerne with her mother Cersei Lannister of whom was visiting for a trade negotiation and would only be in the city a few days but wanted to see Jasper so came with her aunt and tried to see him but discovered from Rosalie Hale that Jasper had left for Nortburg with his grandfather and thus unable to see Jasper she went to see William of whom was at the pools with Edward Cullen, and Leven Martell. William finding her as beautiful as he remembered he talks to her after she is unable to find Jasper, and seducing her she follows him to his fathers throne room where he demands everyone to leave and then sleeps with her on the floor in front of the throne. Lanna and William have a long discussion about their respective lives and the discussion of her child comes up implying for the first time that her son Termin Jest could be Williams, but this is laughed off by William and following this the two sleep together but are stopped during this by Catherine Bell his aunt of whom he has a serious conversation with about his life. Discusted with himself for this he listens to his aunt and goes to Edward and the two come together to decide its time to truly change thus marking the begining of the Journey as William could no longer take the person hes becoming alongside the increasingly depressing dreams he suffered from each night and was forced to attempt to deal with them through finding the places in his dreams of which a common place was a tavern in Forks.
Confronting his father Bill would at first completely reject any idea of him travelling outside of Lucerne, as Bill understood that he was beyond hated outside of the capital, and that worried him for what people might do to the prince. In the end though he realized that William was not going to take no for an anwser and relented by sending an elite troop of soldiers with him, including Carlisle Cullen of whom William had lost all trust in.
William Lovie III. left the city of Lucerne with Edward, Leven, Jasper, Emmett, and a guard unit of sixty men led by Carlisle Cullen of whom had been commanded by Bill Lovie to attempt to maintain his position, but both knew this was nearly hopeless. When they arrived outside of the city they were met by Levan Martell sisters and Ellia Snow of whom joined them with four more men from House Martell, alongside Joshua Jackson and Hayden Percy of whom brought twelve more men with him. Hayden was confronted by Carlisle about why he was there as he had not been commanded by Bill to do this, but Hayden was evasive and when the two had a moment of privacy he said that he worried someone would try and assassinate William during the journey. The group headed towards the safety of the city of Forks on horseback, and as they neared Nortburg William revealed that he had larger plans in mind and that they would be meeting several others in Nortburg. As they passed Norburg they were met by Radlet Scarlet, Dylan Steinmare and their accompanying four men of which further expanded out the group of those joining William on his journey.
On the ride their William and Carlisle engaged in the first of what would become many heated arguments between the two on the journey as William saw Carlisle as little more then a hand of his father. William desired to know how it was that Bill his father was so reluctant to allow him to leave Lucerne as for what reason would anyone have for wanting to harm him. Carlisle berated him about being unwilling to have done something like this before, and that he wasn't mature enough to understand what he was going to find in the cities. The engaged in a long argument in which it became clear to William that Carlisle was deeply aware of a number of important lies that were being told by his father, and that he had no intention of telling William. As Carlisle told William lies about the dislike the people had for him it was Hayden Percy that stopped the party and told William that actually the people were deeply in love with William and he was the only thing they did like about the ruling king.
Eventually when William realized that Carlisle wasn't going to break his father's confidence he stopped talking to him and the younger men, and Leven just socialized the rest of the ride to Forks. This silence between Carlisle and William didn't go unnoticed and Carlisle attempted heavily to reengage the young prince in conversation to no avail. Carlisle was stuck in a terrible place as he knew the scope of terrible things that Bill Lovie had done, and knew that the moment William arrived in Forks he was going to be told by Charlie Swan of the destruction of Tree Hill, and that alone would spark a quest of discovery which would only end with the discovery that Bill was responsible for the violence. Carlisle would at this point realize that there was no hope of protecting his old master in the way he had been commanded too, and thus he begin to hope for the success of William so that Bill would be removed and he would be free from the chains that bound him. Travelling the path along the river, it was at this point that William would send Levan Martell and her party eastward towards Stormwind so that she could tell the Starke`s and Lannisters that he was moving, and that he would be making his way east after he had visited Forks and Charlie Swan. Along with Levan he also had Radlet, and Martin travel westward towards Hillsbrad where they would tell Lord Genn Greymane of their intentions and make him aware that they would attempt to travel to Hillsbrad after they had visited Stormwind.
Arriving in Forks
Main Article : Forks
When the group arrived at Forks the four of them simply sat and looked down at a massive city that for most of their lives they had not even known had existed. Each of the group spent a moment describing what they knew of Forks, at least what they had heard, and the simple fact seemed clear that they had all been fed a lot of lies over their life to keep them from leaving Lucerne. William told them all a story about how his father had told him that in Forks he had once been forced to put down a rebellion that started after the city wanted to kill him, and his brother. Jasper told him that his grand-father as well as clearly taken the party line and had told him and his sister that the city was a haven of criminals and rebels. Leven told the group that her father had refused to speak of Forks, and she realized now the reason was because he was ashamed to have to lie to her so he just simply didn't. At the urging of Carlisle they begin heading towards the town, and they would reach the great castle bridge of which Hayden Percy would travel ahead of the group with twenty men and have the way prepared for them and he did his best to try and keep who they were as something he only told the top commanders of the castle. After Hayden was able to get them through they made there way towards the city itself, and by this point guards from the castle had reached Forks and had begun spreading word that Lucernians were there, and they were of some high level nobility. As they entered the massive gates of Forks they didn't get twenty feet before the very well known and expensive armor of the Lucernians was seen on them which caused the people to begin swarming the group in the hopes of finding out who they were.
William didn't know how nearly mythical the Lovie's had become so he simply attempted to calm the crowd by telling them their prince and his best friends were on a journey to visit the Kingdom and that Forks was their first stop. If he didn't know before he knew after everyone in the crowd fell to their knees and remained deathly silent in their awe of the prince that they all hoped would become their King. Before five minutes the entire city learned of the coming of William Lovie, and a large group of Lucernians, and it took William begging the people to get up before they would finally stop kneeling to him. With the people back on their feet William and the group waded through the crowd that all attempted to touch the armor of their beloved Prince, and as this was happening Jasper, and the rest of the group followed very closely trying there best to keep an eye out for danger. As the groups of people all attempted to touch the armor of the prince the gaurd of House Swan, and his bannerman arrived on the scene to clear out the crowds and allow the prince through, but it took some time before they were able to get moving again. The arrival of Ser Richard of the Swan Guard would finally calm the crowd enough that he was able to line his Swan Knights along the side of the princes entourage, and from there walk them towards Swan Keep.
Golden Haired Boy
While the crowd was clammering for their prince Bella Swan was in the tavern with Alice, and she heard all the noice outside. As she scaled the stairs of the tower of Trelly she looked out of the tower and finally saw the reason for all the commotion, and in that moment she was overcome. While she would never admit it to anyone even to this day during that moment she felt a pull towards the golden haired boy that she had never felt in her entire life. Her mind wanted with everything in her to return to her father's side where this knight was obviously heading to but instead her mind won the battle and simply stared lovestruck at the beautiful golden knight. After five minutes the group had barely moved due to the crowd sheer size and Bella remained in the same spot as she had been. Her only movement came when Alice approached from behind her and she fell startled by her friends arrival. Falling down before getting back up the two watched the group finnally make it out of the crowd after the Forks gaurd, along with the House Swan honor gaurd moved in and created a barrier so that the prince could move through the thousands now lining the streets.
William and the rest of the group would make there way now with the help of the Swan Knights and footmen of Forks through the crowds and made there way towards Swan Keep where they would arrive at to the site of Charlie, and Brodie Swan bowing to them while dressed in beautiful blue Swan adorned armor. Charlie would declare himself and immediatly William gave him the respect he deserved as an Arch Lord of Lucerne, and after giving him bread to signal that he was under guests right he alongside the Shadow Council and Hayden Percy would enter the Swan Keep. Carlie Cullen would attempt to follow them but Brody Swan would hold him back on the command of Charlie before following the rest of the group inside and leaving Carlisle outside with the remainder of the group. Charlie would tell William the first of what would become an ever increasing amount of bad things about his father, and Charlie told him that he was beyond happy to see that he had a chance to meet him before he perished in whatever the next plot of Bill Lovie was. William would be somewhat defensive of his father at first, but Hayden Percy would vouch for many of the things said, and this shocked William as he believed Hayden and couldn't believe that his father was causing so many problems. Charlie told William that Brody would take him on a tour of the estates while Charlie prepared things for William to see, so that he could understand what Charlie believed he could do.
Bella would continue to stare at William throughout the entire time he was surrounded and still in view, and as she did she arrised the questioning of Alice of whom also felt something for the prince out there but attempted to bury that within herself by asking Bella questions. Bella escaped the questioning and badgering of Alice that she go to see the prince, and instead made her way to the blacksmith of her father's loyal banner house House Black to basically hide out. She entered the balcksmith and admittedly spent the next few hours simply walking amongst the seemingly endless stable that surrounded the overall blacksmith. She was about to return home when she heard a commotion from the front of the blacksmith, and when she came out to see what it was she saw that the prince was in the next room talking to Arthur Black the brother of the House Black patriarch. Bella would watch as two other men entered the room in the form of Jasper Hale, and Joshua Jackson, and she watched as the prince laughed with them, and they seemed to love his presence. Arthur Black, and Jasper Hale would leave the area for a few minutes leaving William and Joshua to talk amongst themselves, and she watched as once he believed he was alone William appeared worried and talked in hush tones to Joshua of whom seemed to attempt to reasure him.
As the two continued talking Bella found herself transixed on the prince infront of her. She was so nervous that she wanted to run away and hide in the stables for the rest of her life, but before her cowerdess could allow her to do this she was spotted by Arthur who brought her precense to the prince of Lucerne.When the two locked eyes Bella had to hold onto a railing to keep herself from falling, and while William had a lot of experiance with women he couldn't bare to not touch this girl in a way he couldn't understand. William thanked Arthur, and told Arthur to take Jasper and Joshua and show them the remainder of the Stables, and Arthur quickly removed himself to the pain of Bella whose head was filled with crazy thoughts of love, and marriage. At first Bella was nervous and shy as she was with everyone, but William unlocked something inside herself that had been doment since the death of her brother Jacob Swan, and she begin opening up to him. Bella would take him to the more secluded spot of the Stables, and it was there that the two talked for hours and came to know eachother rather well, with both telling eachother things they hadn't told anyone elce before. This closeness was interupted by the fact that it was well past midnight and so he had to return her Swan Keep, and then make his way to the Tavern that they had taken over as a residence or Jasper was going to explode from worry. William walked Bella back to Swan Keep before the two parted but made plans to meet the next day at the tavern. As William went to leave her though Brody Swan would come out and whisper something to her which caused her to give Brody a kiss on the cheek before she ran back over to William and told her that she was going to join him since she knew friends at the Tavern. Several Swan Knights joined them in order to make sure Bella would be able to get back safely, and thus arm in arm they walked towards the Tavern with Bella leading them.
The Tavern Meeting
As the Lucernians arrived in Forks Alice joined her friend Rosalie Hale, of whom was known as Rosalie Woods due to her supposed bastardy birth, in her persuit of seeing the incoming group, but as they attempted to leave the tavern the owner slapped Alice in the face and forced her and Rosalie to return and not allowing them to see the group as they arrived. This physical abuse wasn't uncommon so Alice just moved about her business, and acted as if nothing had happened. Alice though felt a sort of connection to something in that group even though she had only seen the brief outlines while looking out the window, and that was more painful to her then any slap she would recieve. Sad about not seeing what was the news of the town she and Rosalie did their best to accept this and went about their work for the rest of the day as positvely as they possibly could. During the day they were shocked when the group entered their tavern and took up seats in the corner. With this happening the tavern owner Girardo Fauci would speak with Carlisle Cullen for several minutes, and once this conversation ended Carlisle came out of the office and saw Alice and was shocked to see her there, and not dead. Alice watched as Carlisle looked at her as if he knew her and she was very uncomfortable but attempted to make the best of it and simply tried hard to ignore his staring. Carlisle Cullen as a member of the Circle of Magi was not included in the spell that erased Alice from the collecive memory of the people of Lucerne, and thus why he was so shocked to see her as Bill told him that he had her assassinated.
After at first being overwhelmed by attention by the tavern dwellers they were spared further harassment when Rosalie yelled throughout the tavern that they were going to close if they didn't leave the Lucernians alone. Alice spent the rest of the night watching as the group of Lucernians spent time in the corner, and she made the arrangements when a man named Carlisle Cullen introduced himself and basically said that the group needed lodgings for the night and they would prefer if they could simply take all the rooms in the tavern. As Alice moved about the business of moving their things to their rooms she came to be helped by a silent young man who introduced himself as Jasper Hale. The patrons of the Tavern were slowly removed as the men that guarded all these noble young men begin to take up the spots and guarded the door making sure the tavern was now safe for the royals to sleep in. As the two shook hands on Jasper's insistance they both felt a shock as if something inside them was kismat, and that they recegnized the feeling. They went about their work, but following the hand shake no more words were shared between the two. As Jasper returned to the table he returned to conversation with Emmett, and Edward where he revealed that he felt a connection with the young barmaid. Emmett was far to lost in his lust over the beautiful blond to pay attention to Jasper but Edward was completely listening and had never seen his friend with so much certainty in his eyes since before he had left. For the first time since the death of Hostella Jasper was actually talking to Edward, and this continued for several minutes until the emotions wore off for Jasper once Alice had his eye sight and he realized he was talking to Edward and would from that point on ignore Edward and only talk to Emmett, and Joshua of whom entered shortly after. As they continued to talk Emmett simply got up from the table without a word and walked over to the counter where once their he begin talking to the blonde barmaid. Edward and Jasper were shocked that the extremely shy Emmett had been capable of something so obvious, and once again a member of the group stepped out of his comfort zone and did something they were not used to doing.
The flirting between Rosalie, and the conversation between Jasper, and Joshua ended the moment the front entrance to the tavern opened and walking through the doors was William Lovie, and on his arm was Bella Swan. When Alice watched her normally dower friend walk in smiling while holding the arm of what she could only assume was the most handsome man in the kingdom she couldn't help but do a double take on the two. For the boys this was nothing new as Jasper and William had girls on their arms all the time, but the way he held her hand was something they hand't seen before as usually it was a more physical connection that William was after. The tavern was at this point basically at full copasity with all the guards and other members of their party so it was difficult for William, and Bella to see where the group was. As he looked around the tavern for his friends so that they could meet Bella his eyes scanned a tiny brunette girl standing behind the table and for a moment he was completely lost in thought. His mind went back for a moment and he had a hallucination of dreams he had been having flooding through his mind. Every dream he had ever had about the girl suddenly flashed back to him, and he nearly fell over if not for Bella holding his arm, and keeping him steady.
Seeing Alice awoke something in William, and at first Bella watched him as he looked at Alice, and she felt nervous that she wasn't good enough but as if he felt her nervousness he tightened his grip on her hand and looked down at her smiling. The smile he gave her wiped away the fear she had, and brought her back to the happiness that she was feeling the moment before. Across the room at the bar Alice nearly dropped the jug of liquid that she was holding and stumbled her way back into the store room to calm herself down. At first she was horrified that she might be attracted to her best friends date, and thus she decided to hide herself away in the storeroom. As William held Bella's hand and walked towards his friends who he had finally spotted he spied the blonde sitting on Emmett's lap and smiled at his friend who appeared to be smitten. He locked eyes with Edward who gave him a knowing smile, and for the first time in a long time he returned Edwards smile, as he believed Edward was happy for him. Jasper and Joshua would both say hello to Bella and the group got into a fresh, and lively conversation only interupted by sporadic kissing between Rosalie and Emmett.
The Storeroom Meetings
As the group talked and spent time together Rosalie, and Bella both wondered where Alice had gone too, and Jasper said that she was probably still busy like before. Bella got up from the table and went to see where she might be, and like always her noble stance meant that she was able to walk into the back where she found Alice sitting in the corner of the store room. Bella walked up to her, and sat down beside her and tried to find out what was wrong. Alice lied to Bella and told her she was nervous about seeing Jasper again because she thought she was having strong feelings for him and what was the point of getting involved since she was nothing but a barmaid. Bella looked her in the face and said she was so much more then that, and the group out there would never look at her as just a barmaid. She knew Bella was right but she wasn't ready to see the prince again so she told Bella to ask Jasper if he would come see her in the back room. Alice would hug Bella and tell her she loved her before Bella left to tell Jasper.
Bella would return to the table, and say that Alice was in the back room because the tavern owner had forced her back there so not to bother the customers, and that she wanted to apologize to Jasper in person. Jasper would immediately go to the back to see her, and he found her now standing against the wall waiting for him. The two would talk, and eventually they would kiss against the wall before things got more heated, and they would make love. As Jasper and Alice were in the storeroom the group outside continued having a great time, but in the back of William's mind he continued to think of the brunette barmaid that he had seen at the front, but like Alice threw herself into Jasper, William threw himself more and more into Bella. The two continued to talk lovingly and didn`t know when Rosalie, and Emmett left to go to her room William decided the time was right to take Bella home, and he said goodbye to Edward and left a goodbye for Jasper before holding Bella's hand and leaving with her. Emmett and Rosalie would spend the night talking but for the first time in her life Rosalie had found someone who didn`t just want her body, and this led to the two to become quite close very quickly in.
Taking Bella`s hand and walking her down the street he was painfully aware that despite the appearance of being alone with her in fact he could make out Ellia Snow, and Hayden Percy following behind them keeping enough distance to remain private, but still close enough to move forward if something went wrong. William would enter the Swan Keep with her, and when the guards indicated that her father was away from the keep meeting several just arriving nobles from Highgarden he would take her back to the stables where they had originally met, and the two talked there for almost another hour, before the arrival of Charlie Swan, and a large troop of Highgarden men would cause them to depart eachother. As the shy Bella Swan was preparing to leave his side he would kiss her, and the two lost themselves in the kiss for several minutes before Hayden came into the barn to tell them the lady had to leave before they were discovered.
As Alice and Jasper finished they talked about things, and Alice frankly asked him where he saw this going, and Jasper who was trying to be a good guy after everything he had done in the past told her that he would like to see her again. Alice was skeptical because he lived in a different city, and was a completely different kind of person in terms of importance but looking into his eyes she believed him. This didn't take away from the fact that Alice couldn't get the prince out of her head, and thus when Jasper extended his hand to take her back inside she took his hand and prepared to once again see the prince. When they entered the hall again she noticed the table was barren except for Edward who sat alone at the table drinking his water. When they arrived they learned that William had left with Bella, and Emmett had left with Rosalie, Joshua had went to bed, and with this Edward said that he too was going to bed, and said goodnight. Alice in that moment was sadly sort of happy that nothing was expected of her with Jasper and walked hand in hand with him as he escorted her to her small room four floors up the tavern. Collapsing into her bed she attempted to fall asleep but the screaming headache she suffered from was the worse she had ever felt before and she wanted to cry out in pain, but bit down on a pillow for longer then she would have liked to admit.
| Arriving in Stormwind |
First we saw Forks and were shocked at how many people there were. Looking at Stormwind you couldn`t help but feel the same. Everything my father had told me was a lie. That became clear the moment I looked through the Great Eye of Stormwind.
Arriving in Stormwind
Leaving Forks by boat the group now numbered nearly a dozen ships worth of men, and nobles all travelling with the prince of Lucerne, and for many this was people drawing lines in the sand. For the part of Bill Lovie this was the worst case scenario and he begin to try and find ways to stop William from realizing the truth once he reached Stormwind by trying to have his agents assassinate Eddard Starke, and in this way he commanded several of Ezio Ederiz's agents to go to Stormwind and kill him.
Return to Lucerne
| Removing the Old King |
Father it is time. You must come with us. This is the only way the Kingdom can ever truly heal.
Removing the Old King
As William Lovie III. moved back towards Lucerne following the victory at Tree HIll it would be Janos Flynt that was in a position that was only a step beneath his brother Tavin Flynt of whom was running the city watch as the commander. On the days following the liberation of Tree Hill news begin to filter into the city that William Lovie III. was on his way to Lucerne and was planning on removing his father from power. While during this time Bill Lovie made no effort to control the city watch so that they would defend the city, his young son Sean Lovie did attempt to stop his entry. The liberation of Tree Hill was the moment that Sean Lovie understood that William would return to Lucerne and attempt to remove his father, and most likely kill him as by this point there was no scenario where William couldn't have known the truth of what happened at Tree Hill. This wasn't something Sean could allow so he begin ordering the guards of the city to prepare the defenses of the city in order to make sure that william had no way of entering the city. He mainly was giving these orders to Tavin Flynt of whom had always retained the belief that he was loyal to House Lovie first and then the Kingdom thus he made the choice to stand beside Sean Lovie, and Bill Lovie. This decision was met with rumblings throughout the city watch as most wanted William to be victorious but his control over the top echelons was powerful, and most believed he had the support of his brother Janos Flynt of whom was the most influential member of the city watch. Following the arrival of the raven by declaring the victory of William Lovie III. it would be Bill Lovie that would recall his niece Michelle Trachtenberg to the Sky Towers and would take out all of his anger on the poor depressed young girl, and following his attack of Michelle he would exile her to Whitehaven Castle and reveal this to no one outside of his closest confidents.
Wedding of Bella, and William
While William was unknowingly to Alice engaging in a sexual relationship with Brooke Scott in Tree Hill it would be Alice that was pushing forward with plans for the wedding of William Lovie III. and her best friend Bella Swan. William would departs Tree Hill planning to go to Forks and reveal the truth to Bella but after he arrived at Forks he was met first by his sister, and Alice would be so excited that despite not wanting to marry Bella anymore he is unable to disappoint his sister of whom loves Bella deeply, and he goes through with the wedding despite everything in him wanting Brooke more. Trying to delay the wedding William is at first successful and the army of Lucerne prepares to leave for the capital but this is delayed when Bella reveals that she is pregnant basically forcing William to marry her in order to keep from having a bastard. Thus due to the pregnancy Alice is able to delay the departure of William in order to have the wedding before he arrives in Lucerne, and thus join House Swan and House Lovie together before he leaves for Lucerne. During the wedding itself Alice watches him lie during the Vow to protect and love her for the rest of his days and following this while everyone else is screaming in excitement Alice is in a fog of which is noticed by Edward Cullen of whom holds her hand and walks with her out of the ceremony as they follow William and Bella who now married are heading towards the wedding feast. Following the ceremony she walks out and sees Lanna Lannister talking with Jasper Hale of whom is gently rubbing her arm, and following this she looks for Dylan Steinmare of whom she finds and takes him away from the party and kisses him. As they become more heated she pulls away leaving him behind, and returning to the party where she takes her seat beside William of whom holds her hand as several prominent members of the Kingdom of Lucerne say nice things about the married couple.
Entering the CityFollowing the wedding of Bella Swan, and William Lovie III. the situation deterioted even further as they were only a few days away from Lucerne but had a truly massive army with the entire Grand State of Forks behind him following the marriage. Janos Flynt had the support of the vast majority of the city watch when he approached his brother with the idea of doing what was right and allowing William Lovie into the city. As William was one day away from Lucerne Janos Flynt would approach his brother and attempt to talk him out of his decision, but where Janos expected that his brother would listen to his advise and everything would be fine but instead Tavin discussed how he was preparing under the orders of Sean to not only bar entrance but to first allow Willim into the tunnel where they would kill him and anyone else in the tunnel at the time. Hearing this was too much for Janos of whom begged his brother to not be insane and think of the entire Kingdom but Tavin refused him and enraged that his brother had seemingly turned on him he called on men of his guard to arrest Janos for treason, and when he did this Janos realized that there wasn't going to be any convincing him, so before he was put under arrest from the guards he unsheathed his sword and slashed his brother across the neck killing him almost instantly. At the death of Tavin the guards stood down and basically switched loyalties almost immediately, and as Janos had been the second most powerful within the City Watch he was able to cover up the death of Tavin for a time while he moved on to making sure the Watch followed his commands. Following this Janos would go throughout the various city watch commanders and make sure everyone was with him, and when he was sure they were he gave the command for William to be allowed into the city. William would enter through the vast gates of Lucerne alongside his force, and Sean Lovie would watch from the first gate as his brother approached a position he believed was blocked to him. Sean ran to the city watch command and demanded to see Tavin, but found information that Tavin had been murdered and Janos was now in charge of the city watch. Realizing he had failed to resist the entry of William Lovie he fled to the Sky Towers where he planned to use the Sky Tower forces to hold off William while he hoped his father would gather supporters. Finding that none of the supposed loyal vassals of House Lovie remained on Bill`s side despite his fathers belief that they would have supported his rule over his upstart son, and thus Sean panicked and begin abusing the few remaining lower ranked nobles that had come to the Sky Towers to show their support.
Entering the Sky Tower
The prince would continue making his way through the city of Lucerne William would gather thousands of supporters to his army marching like a massive horde towards the Sky Towers where the hundred strong garrison would prepare for their coming. As William Lovie attempted to enter the Sky Towers Sean Lovie gave the House Lovie forces the command to stop him at all costs but by this point no one was listening to him, and the order wasn't accepted by the head of the House Lovie Sky Tower guards in Barrett Ahren. Sean discovered that they too were unwilling to stop the prince from coming, and begged his father to tell him how they were going to get out of this but his father just sat at his desk waiting for William to enter the room. When William entered the room he did so flanked by Hedrik, Franklin, Edward, Jasper, and Emmett and they found his father sitting at his desk writing on papers, while Sean stood in the corner of the room looking very uncomfortable. William would accuse Bill Lovie of treason and make him very much aware that he was now the King in everything but name, to which Bill Lovie stood up and responded with the following.
Bill went on a series of rants and William rejected this logic, and prepared to arrest Bill and place him in jail, when all of a sudden Bill broke out into historical crying. After litterly crying for nearly a minute Bill finally begin blabbering about different things of which none appeared to make sense until finally Bill begin discussing the Battle of Lyons. Bill told William of how there were piles upon piles of bodies, and he knew that the Orcs were greater then he was. With that speech done Bill took out of his pocket a blue stone, and told William that the day he might bring justice against him would come at some point but it wasn't today as today he was going to leave to the safety that the stone provided. In a single moment Bill disappeared and teleported to the location the stone sent the user. With Bill gone it was just William and Sean and the two stood transfixed at each other, and then as suddenly as a man shot with an arrow dies, Sean went to his pocket and pulled out a green stone and then disappeared into nothing.
| Nortburg Tournament of 5125 |
Look out there Alice. Did you ever imagine we would be hosting men, Dwarves, and Elves for what is quickly becoming our honeymoon.
Nortburg Tournament of 5125
Main Article : Nortburg Tournament of 5125
Following the crowning of William Lovie III. as the new King of Lucerne he met with his council within the Lucernian capital and they went bout devising there next steps of action. Following some of the more extensive plans he met with the Shadow Council, and Jacob Vorn IV. of whom now stood as the King's Archbishop and the group would decide they needed to know more about the regions around them and also repair damage and they would do this by planning a tournament at Nortburg and invite foreign dignitaries to the tournament alongside the most influential of nobles of Lucerne. Also invited to the Tournament would be the Trachtenberg family of whom were the blood cousins of William Lovie incluing his uncle Frank Trachtenberg, and two cousins Michelle Trachtenberg, and Kristen Trachtenberg all of whom William wanted to repair relationships with most specifically with Michelle who he came to understand had been treated quite terribly by his father. The Trachtenberg side of the family had become distant due to several instances, most notably the imprisonment of Bill Lovie's cousin Katia Lovie the Matriarch of House Trachtenberg in the city of Berne.
Meeting the Elves
End of a Betrothal
The Starke's had come on mass to the Tournament of Nortburg and during this time it was believed that Sansa Starke, and Joffrey Lannister would get a lot of time together to get to know eachother, and while this was true with Joffrey, and Sansa going on a walk together and having a good time, this would alter dramatically later that night.
| The Underfort|
I come here on the wishes of the King of the Valley. My brother wishes for the two of us to become friends again. Too much has happened between our two people for us to ever be as indifferent to each other as my father forced upon us.
With the conquest of the Riverlands, and Fairmarket, the situation in the east was dramatically becoming one of major strength for Lucerne, but Alice and William discussed the need to rebuild ties with the Dwarves if nothing else then to secure their rear. Alice would command the construction of a small fort called the Underfort northward from the direction the Underway had went. The Underfort was constructed close to two mountain valleys of which they were able to get into using old Dwarven tunnels, and inside the valleys (mainly the western one named the Valley of Drael) they would construct farms which would feed the population in the Underfort and form a home for those living in the fort. Using maps they had in the House Lovie library they were able to make their way north enough to be met by Dwarves from Thaig Aeducan. Telling the forces in the Underfort that they wished to meet with the Dwarves the meeting was accepted and the Dwarves sent a large diplomatic troop to meet them at the Underfort. Alice Lovie would gather a force of some one hundred men at arms, and Leven Martell, Nicoli Machieveli, as well as several other nobles and head to the Underfort where she planned to meet with the Dwarves.
The meeting took place in the Underfort and Alice would meet with Dori Snowblown of whom introduced himself as the Senator for the Thaig of Aeducan. They would meet for several days and over this time Dori would explain to Alice much about the history of the Valley of Lucerne, as well as the mountains. Revealing to her that despite the assertions of her father the Goblins were not defeated after the Driving Tide, but in fact were slowly overwhelming the Dwarves due to their superior ability to replace losses. Dori would send one of his sons in Tori Snowblown to go with them, and he became the squire of Leven Martell despite his vastly superior age. Alongside this trade deals were signed and promices made of further advancement of their relationships.
Death of Joey Faraday
| Faraday Conflict |
My brother is dead. I demand justice from the royal family.
It was around the time that Freddie Highmore and Emma Bell were beginning their full fledged secret relationship that Joey Faraday and his own personal level of depression would cause a massive problem that would eventually spread into a household rivalry. By this point they had begun to discuss the idea of telling Emma's beloved cousin William of whom was also Freddie's friend, but at that point had not fully worked up the courage to say anything yet, and it was under these pretents that they went to a tavern in Lucerne proper to be alone together. The two were having a great time until Freddie went to the tender to ask for a refill of the drink that Emma had come to enjoy and when he did the situation would drive out of control. When he left Joey Faraday would use this moment of departure to attempt to seduce Emma Bell of whom he had been watching for some time from across the tavern. Where once his natural looks had allowed him to get any manner of girl that he wanted, as his reputation had spread so to as a result had the number of women interested begun to dwindle. As he had become used to resistance he had also become used to forcing his way on girls and using his noble birth, and money to bribe off any trouble after the case, and thus when Emma told him she was with Freddie, and that she was noble born he saw this as the same rejection and he started to get more forceful in their meeting. When Freddie came back to the table and found the situation he attempted to remain calm and simply advise Joey who was much older then him to back away. This calm approach did not go over well and Joey reacted with laughter before punching him in the face knocking Freddie momentarily down, but he quickly got up and following this the two would become involved in a scuffle of which Joey would lose causing him to request a duel with Freddie Highmore.By this point Paulo Snow entered the tavern after finally catching up with Joey, and by this point he found Joey tauning young Freddie into a duel, and because of the large crowd Freddie was forced to go into the duel even though he knew that Joey wouldn't stand a chance. Joey Faraday would taunt him into the street and then took out a sword threatening Emma of which caused Freddie to sadly take out his own sword, and the two fought although with Joey nearly falling over drunk it wasn't much of a fight as Freddie knocked his sword aside and shouted for him to surrender. Joey refused and charge Emma with a dagger forcing Freddie to stab him through the back to stop him, and killing him nearly instantly. Paulo took out his sword and tried to attack Freddie of whom he was able to fight breifly before guards from the nearbye House Elbertson led by (Ser) Underian of House Elbertson would step in and stop Paolo of whom watched screaming as Freddie left the scene carrying the crying Emma Bell. Following this Emma would wake up the following morning surrounded Alice Lovie, and her aunt Catherine Lovie of whom let her cry and held her before finally telling her that a trial had been demanded by the Faraday's over the death of Joey Faraday. At that point she begged to know where Freddie was and they said he had been taken and placed in the Lucernian dungeon awaiting his trial, but when she became irate that he was in jail for basically defending her they revealed this had been decided only after he had returned to the House Highmore estate and the Faraday's had attempted to kill him in the courtyard leading to Desmond Faraday also being imprisoned awaiting trial. Dressing quickly she accompanied Alice into the courtyard where they were met by some twenty House Lovie guards including Giblert Fouline, and James Junnsworth of whom escorted the group to the King's Keep where Bella Swan was preparing the court for the arrival of the group. With King William in the Port of Stormwind celebrating the foundation of that city while this was happening it did fall to the Councillors of Lucerne, and the Queen to determine the court, and under these circumstances Bella would prepare ahead of the time and had recalled many of the most influential in the Lucerne Court. The trial would have five judges as was the way in Lucernian courts in the form of Cersei Lannister, Bella Lovie, Brandon Starke, Liam Greymane, and Mace Tyrell of whom would listen to the words of the plaintiffs first in the form of Desmond Faraday who had been released from jail alongside Freddie. Weaving a tale of lies he argued that Freddie had killed Joey in blind rage using Magi and trickery. The Faraday's brought forward several men who were not present at the fight of whom told the court that Freddie was a well known pedophile and had also been found killing children in Nortburg years before, and while Brandon Starke on the council would openly laugh at the truthfulness of these stories, it wasn't until the defense led by Lysa Highmore called as their witness Underian of House Elbertson that the case was completely ended. Underian as a witness and a knight testified that he saw Freddie attempt to stop the fight and even after defeating Joey attempted to resist hurting him, but Joey had brought death upon himself when he tried to kill Emma Bell of whom took the stand next and as a princess of Lucerne her words would end the trial when she agreed with Freddie, and Underian.
Following Emma Bell's words the judges would briefly speak together before Brandon Starke spoke giving the words of the judges in the form of stating they had come to terms with the fact that Freddie Highmore was innocent of murder, and then proceeded to verbally attack Desmond Faraday and several of the Faraday retainers who had wasted their time with this hearing. Desmond would at first remain silent but then responded with great anger shouting and trying to get to Freddie of whom stood stoically as the House Lovie guards took Desmond away where he would spend the day and night in the Lucerne Dungeon. While Desmond was imprison again Bella Lovie, and Alice Lovie would take up court at the Keep and would summon Charles Faraday of whom they would have a long conversation with about the events of the day. Charles made it very clear that he was demanding consequences against House Highmore and that unless there were consequences there was going to be reprisals against House Highmore. Once Desmond was released his father was told by James Junnsworth that until William Lovie III. returned and he was on his way that nothing more would be done in the matter, and grudgingly Desmond agreed as he believed that the King would punish Freddie. Following the departure of Charles Faraday she would meet with Cersei Lannister and the two have a nice conversation before Cersei unknowingly slips that Lanna Lannister had traveled to the Port of Stormwind and realizing that Jasper is a liar about not seeing Lanna anymore she says a quick goodbye to Cersei and goes to find Dylan Steinmare. Finding him talking to Emmett she has him excuse himself and following Alice the two return to the Cloud Tower where without any real words of what she is thinking she seduces Dylan and the two sleep together. Following this the two discuss there futures and Alice all but pleads with Dylan to tell her to not marry Jasper, but despite proclaiming his love for Alice he knows he cannot divorce Laera Steinmare who he loves as well, and she must marry Jasper Hale for her brother, and although she has come to hate Jasper she knows this is the case.
Return of the King
Following the court decision the situation remains in a holding pattern as the Faradays await the return of the king of whom they strongly believe will reverse the decision and they will get their vengeance. When William Lovie III. arrives back at Lucerne following the debacle that was the death of Joey Faraday and trial of Freddie Highmore, and upon his arrival he is met at the gates by Alice, and Bella of whom accompany him back to the Cloud Tower where upon their arrival they tell him about the trial and he is quite shocked but is proud of his wife, and sister for their handling of the event but despite agreeing with their decision he is forced to meet with Desmond, and Charles Faraday of whom ask for punishment against Freddie Highmore. Tired from his trip he tells them that the law is concrete and there is no changing the decision, and unknown to him the Faradays take this as meaning that he is saying they must get justice themselves and while disappointed they see this as an opportunity to get their own revenge on House Highmore. Following his conversation with Desmond, and Charles he returns to the Cloud Towers and has a long conversation with Alice, but despite wanting to and Alice pressuring him to reveal the truth of Brooke he refuses to and the two siblings say goodnight and William goes to his room with Bella where he sleeps with her. Waking up after sleeping with Bella he is overcome with sadness over being apart from Brooke, and despite having Bella's arms around him he feels no better, and leaving his bed with Bella he goes to Alice's room where still overcome with emotions over being apart from Brook he finally reveals the entire truth to Alice that he is in love with Brooke. The two siblings argue for some time as William reveals the true scope of the relationship, and only after this does Alice truly come to understand that William's feelings are more then just lust. Revealing the scope of the relationship leads Alice to go through the endless list of potential problems it creates, and emotionally exhausted and unwilling to let his sister be mad at him he agrees to Alice's demand that he break things off with Brooke.
Learning Hard Truths
Main Article : Bill Lovie
| Learning Hard Truths |
You think that you know everything, and then he comes back and shows you how wrong you were.
Bill Lovie had by this point come to accept the death of his son Sean Lovie, but became in his isolation saddened by the fact that his bastard children with Esme Portmane were stuck in Lorderon far away from the growing Kingdom of Lucerne. With this in mind Bill would concoct a plan to infiiltrate the city of Lucerne, and the Cloud Tower specifically so that he could tell William the truth of his extended family. Late at night Bill Lovie used all of his power to summon himself as a spirit into Cloud Tower bypassing the light defences of the Blue Dragon members that were in Lucerne. In this form William Lovie was approached by Bill Lovie who told him that he had fathered other children with a women named Esme Portmane in Lorderon, and that he was sorry for doing this. Bill in this moment apologized to William for creating all the damage and evil that he had created in his time, but he wanted William to know that whatever he thought this meeting was it wasn't the end because Bill was now completely gone when it came to morals.
After this William would wake up his wife, and sister and as they talked his cousin Emma Bell came up as well telling them that Edward had arrived with several Order of the Blue Dragon members in order to see what had entered the Cloud Tower. Telling them what had happened there was shock around, and Edward reluctantly left not wanting to intrude as the Lovie's discussed the issue. They would all agree that the fault did not lay with these children as they were far away, and that they should make attempts to connect with them.
With the decision made William took his sister Alice, as well as his cousin Emma Bell to Lorderon where he planned to welcome his half siblings into the family as well as welcoming this women that had given birth to his father's children. The group would be joined by many others as the King of Lucerne travelling to a province so far from home would bring about all manner of problems. House Lovie would enlist nearly three thousand men from the personal levies to travel with the force and Oberyn Martell was placed in charge of the defence of Lucerne while they were away. The Shadow Council would obviously also join with the trip and Leven and William would ride together for much of the trip while Edward would ride with Jasper of whom was cold to him for most of the trip. They would be joined at the gates of Lucerne by Hedrik Clegane III. of whom had left immediatly when he had gotten the raven about the summoning from William, and thus would join them as well. When Alice asked William how he was going to se easily let these new people into the family he anwsered her with the following.
As they made the trip the group found themselves nervous about what kind of people they would find as their new family. Emma Bell wondered outloud many times whether this was some sort of trap that had been carefully planned by his father, but when this was discussed most discarded it due to the belief that of all the things he had done Bill had shown no ability under any cercumstances to actually harm William. Travelling along the road they took boats waiting for them in Lole from the growing fleet of the Order of the Red Dragon. The group is forced to travel through the Trident where Walder Frey demands double the rate of usual passage from the Lucernian fleet as payment for the insults that Robb Starke had supposedly layed on them. Wishing to meet with Walder aboard the ships they were told he was to old to do this but William could land and meet him inside the castle. This was rejected diplomatically and the group continued without further interuptions to Lorderon where they arrived in the port to much happiness.
Arriving in Lorderon they were met by Arch Lord Arthas Menathil, of whom many who had met him previously were confused by the shocking change in his appearance. Where before he was clean shaven and his eyes clear he now appeared to be ragged, and his eyes had changed in appearance to a near mennacing look. William would alert Jasper, and Leven to this change, and as this happened Edward saw that he was not consulted and was hurt deeply. The group doesn't notice as Edward is left behind and travels to a tavern, and they make their way to the palace where Arthas apologizes for his wife's absence but he cannot find her. Arthas has a fit that appears to be a siezure, and is taken away by several retainers, and following this they meet with Imlad, and Calia Menathil sister, and cousin to Arthas of whom would make arrangements to meet with Esme Portmane. Esme lived in the palace with her daughter and son while the remaining daughter lived in Arnor as a princess they were told. Esme arrived with Jamie, and Diane Portmane and the rest of the non Lovie members would leave the room as they discussed things. Esme immediatly knew what this was going to be about as she obviously knew who the father of her children were, and Diane also was aprised to the situation so it was only Jamie that they had to explain things to. Jamie would be clearly hurt, and William took him out of the room to talk as the girls all hugged and got to know eachother. Jamie and William would discuss many things, and eventually it came to his future and William said that he still had to prove himself but if he did he would be the eventual Lord of House Portmane and since it was being made into a cadet house of House Lovie his power would be heavy. Asking how this was possible when he was a bastard William made it very clear that he was no longer a bastard, and William's younger sibling and sole remaining brother would hug him so suddenly that Jasper nearly sliced him in two before realizing it was just a hug. The family would stay for several days before finally departing for the west where Diane returned with them while Jamie was left in command of House Portmane but would visit with Esme some time in the future. During those days they stayed William would also remain because he and Edward talked and he learned of the talk with Jaina and Medivh and he wanted Edward to look into this which he did with the help of Leven Martell.
Wedding of Hanna Arryn
| Wedding of Hanna Arryn|
You truly look beautiful my friend. May the dragon always shine down on you as he does today.
With the death of Brooke Scott, William had been forced to deal with it in silence until his break down with Alice, but since then despite promising to talk to her he kept it inside, and he fell into a secretive depression. During this time the only person he discussed any of his emotional problems with was Leven Martell of whom at this point he begin to become somewhat more then just friends with again, but despite this emotional shift between the two of them it never changed physically. Alice wanted her brother back, and tried many things to get him back, but when they did not succeed she found the perfect opportunity when their old friend Hanna Arryn prepared for her marriage to Harrold Krinner, and in order to support one of his oldest friends she was able to convince him to travel westward. Returning to the scene of so much death would have been more painful but nearly every member of House Lovie traveled west alongside the whole Shadow Council outside of Edward Cullen of whom was in Lorderon dealing with the Arthas situation. Travelling westward wasn`t such a huge deal for many of them but for Thomas that was the last place he had been alive with his mother, and returning there with his family was a huge moment for the young man. When the group reached the outskirts of Berne the army he traveled with would camp outside the gates and inside the internal valley before they entered the city. Greeted by all the lords and ladies of Berne and the entire province William and the rest of the group would smile and share great love once more when Hanna Arryn, and her sister Aria exited the gate and made their way to them. Hanna, and Aria led them inside the city, and they all marveled over the rebuild that had went on inside the city under the leadership of Aria Arryn, and it was then that they would begin mingling leading to William being pulled away from Alice and taken to meet all the leaders of the city.
Before leaving Alice would watch as Hanna and William discussed his affair with Brooke, and how he loved her so much that it felt painful just getting up anymore. William would also mention for the first time to her that he wanted to find the Dragons, and that he thought with everything inside himself that if he did then Lucerne could survive.
Arrival of Hillsbrad
It would be following his taking part in the defense of Castle Stragnarax that a emotionally devastated Franklin Brent would return to Marburg where his wife Karyl Reyne is waiting for him alongside their son Davin Brent, and seeing her waiting for him he collapses into her arms utterly spent by the feeling that he got nothing from all his years of devoted work for his father. Sharing a moment together he tells her he is done running errands for his father and wants to rule something himself leading to him telling her that he was going to go and find his father and tell him that he needed to let him go and find his own lands. Meeting with his father his father would reluctantly send him to Berne where the wedding of Hanna Arryn was looking to be the beginning of what rumors were saying would be William's desire to expand into the lands west of Berne forming a new province there. Travelling to Berne with a small force and his wife he is met on the road by Dexter Hill of whom continues to be disliked by Karyl but their friendship leads Franklin to invite Dexter to join him on the road to Berne though in order to make his wife happy he travels at the front of the force while Franklin and his wife stay in the middle.
Delayed by a collapsing portion of the path through the Dragon's Pass the forces of Hillsbrad under Franklin Brent would arrive following the wedding of Hanna, and Harrold, but did meet the forces of the royal family on the road.
End of Brooke Scott
| Final Moments with Brooke |
If I had known the end was at hand, I would have done so much differently...
Malfoys, and the time he spent with his friends, and Brooke into a return to the capital where his sister awaited him. William's time with Brooke had shown him without a doubt that while he loved Bella it just wasn't the same as his love for Brooke, and he didn't know where to place that knowledge as of yet. Entering through the gates his sister sprinted towards him and jumped into his arms holding him tight as his commanders looked on, and not even Jasper her near husband was willing to try and get between her and William. Alice would finally give way to the queen in Bella Swan who hugged him with tears flowing down her cheek, and William hugged the women back that he loved deeply, but he now knew he didn't love enough.
William's return from Westbridge had led him from happiness in the victory over the |
Alice's agents had discovered increasing talk about William's affair with Brooke Scott, and this had her greatly worried as she had held onto the belief that it was nothing more then a fling, but having invited her to Westbridge she knew this was something beyond a fling. Alice told him that she had evidence that Brooke was once again contacting people looking for poison and although she had been unsuccesful so far it was just a matter of time until she found the supplies she was looking for. Hearing all this he promiced his sister who was crying and beggining him to do this for her, he promiced her that he would end things with Brooke, and told her he would leave within a few weeks to Tree Hill with Leven.
William following this confrontation with Alice would go to the only person who he believed he could tell in the form of Leven Martell of whom would tell him how she sorry was about things, but as the conversation continued the weakness of William's emotional state came forward and he almost kissed Leven causing him to flee her room into the streets of the House Lovie estate. Finding himself out front of the home of Morrigan of whom he continued to have staying on the grounds he would knock on her door looking for her advise on things as for some reason he was drawn to her door (the reason being the Magi she was using on him driving him to seek her out.
Brooke had departed from the main army alongside her brother Lucas at Stormwind, and travelled back to Tree Hill where she was rejuvinated. Her time over the past weeks with William were the best she had in years, and she finally remembered happiness. Lucas was happy for her despite knowing the consequences of what she was continuesly moving farther and farther into, but she wouldn't hear it and just couldn't stop smiling. When Brooke arrived back in Tree Hill she was barely able to stop herself from paying the driver more coin to get to see her children quicker, but when she did arrive she and her brother were met in the keep by the other members of their family, but most importantly to Brooke was the moment Riley ran to her, and Peyton carried Sigmund to her side. Settling back into life in Tree Hill she would meet with Morrigan of whom had become once again very close to her, and despite seeing a change in Morrigan she brushed it aside, and got closer to Morrigan. She would be tricked by Morrigan into visiting a shop that she didn't know what was, but it was done so that agents of the Order of the Green Dragon would see her enter, and thus report back to William that she was in fact entering a shop that specialized in poisons. Having framed Brooke of the attempted murder of Bella Swan Morrigan disapeared for a time, where in she was visited by Flemeth of whom gave her a new task which was to manipulate the situation that was coming from the arrival of the Man of Fear.
During this conversation between Morrigan and Flemeth some things changed that Flemeth in her arrogance did not see in that as Odin was continuing to release Morrigan from her corruption she nearly had gained the ability to stab Flemeth during the rage she had felt towards her "Mother". The second major change was the fact that she had in her own mind gained the ability to alter the commands of Flemeth which was something completely unimaginable before, and while she didn't fully realize it at the time it would be a dramatic change also. The final thing that changed was that Morrigan silently wanted to help her daughter Morrigan of whom she was coming to believe was her favorite behind only Halenia and in this regard she would return to the Korcani Wilds and have her devoted daughter Morhlese go back to Lucerne to watch Morrigan without saying anything and just help her where she could. Realizing that if Morhlese returned and secretly watched Morrigan she would discover that Morrigan was betraying the Korcani Wilds it would be Katarina that would request to go with Morhlese and wanting to send as much help for Morrigan as possible she would allow Katarina to go as well.
Saying GoodbyeWilliam left nearly two months later from Lucerne in order to say goodbye to Brooke, and in the days preceding this it was clear to everyone that he was emotionally damaged by what he had to do. Jasper, Edward and Emmett had all nearly demanded to be there for their friend, but Edward was needed elsewhere, Emmett was dealing with problems in the west, and Jasper was needed to protect the household while he was gone so he refused them and took only Leven, alongside the hundreds of troops that would. Leven and William travelled by horseback with a troop of nearly two hundred House Lovie troops, and nearly the same number of Martell and Golden Dragon men. Travelling the road he would further confide in Leven of whom by this point was basically the only person who knew everything he had ever done, and was the only person he had never lied to about his actions. As they reached Tree Hill the two would tell eachother that they loved the other, and for Leven this caused her to cry and William held her to him. Leven at this point couldn't escape the constant ache in her heart over William, and begin in that moment to resist her earlier promice to herself that she would stop wanting to be with William. Following this Leven and William would compose themselves, and then she held his hand briefly as they entered the city that would always be a reminder of his greatest love, and greatest mistake.
Leaving behind a broken Brooke Scott William used all his remaining strength to enter the inner palace and find his two sons. Followed closely by Leven she stopped him in a hallway and as he tried to get away she just hugged him, and he broke for a moment hugging into her and not wanting to move. He didn't move it was Leven that released him and smiled kissing him on the lips before pulling him down the hallway towards the sounds of laughter. Finding Sigmund playing with Lucas and Haley Leven left to get Sigmund, and William bid all the servents leave. Haley, and Lucas left leaving father and son alone together one last time. Riley wanted to know what they would be doing together while he was in Tree Hill as whenever he visited he would spend time with Riley, but William was forced to tell him that this time he wasn't going to be able to, and really had just wanted to say goodbye to his son. Riley begin to cry realizing that this goodbye was more permenet as he saw Leven bring Sigmund into the room and William cradle Sigmund while staring into his eyes.
Riley and William would hug for many minutes, but finally he pulled himself away from another person he loved dearly kissing his two sons on the forehead before leaving the room, and Tree Hill for the last time. Riley would get his brother and find his mother of whom he knew would be in the garden as that was where she always went when she was broken by things like this. Finding her still crying in the garden he felt anger towards his father for not being stronger, but at the same time he blamed Bella Swan of whom by this point Dan Scott had been whispering about for many months. Anger towards Bella and Alice for forcing his father to do this, and for the first time he openly stated his desire to see Bella dead. And in the end anger towards everyone for not loving him as much as others who were no more deserving then he was of love.
Death of Brooke
When Brooke returned to the alchemist three days later she found the potion ready for her, but as she walked out of the house she ran into a man clothed completely in black robes, and wearing a mask that showed nothing but the outline of his pure red eyes. This scared her, and she screamed to the crowd for them stop the man, and the crowd couldn't see him so they attacked a man that was just standing by her, and nearly killed him to protect Brooke. As she watched the Dark Man just stood there and watched. He followed her home, and she attempted to get him away but as she did this she realized that she was the only that could see him. She knew that if this was Magi related the only person who might be able to help her was Morrigan so she ran to find her all the while being followed by the Dark Man. When she arrived at the home of Morrigan she could clearly see him, but Morrigan played it off as if she couldn't and this sealed the fate of Brooke's sanity. Staying with Morrigan for a time she was held close by Morrigan of whom was trying to tell her it was just stress and not to worry about it, but on the inside she was dying as she knew the fate of Brooke was all but sealed with the arrival of the Dark Man, and noone capable of seeing him.
She from that point on refused to accept he was there and went about her next days attempting to ignore him, but he begin to threaten those close to her, and she became scared once again to the point that she fled from him as fast as she could before she would take a carriage northward. She at first thought she had gotten away from him, but when she arrived in Lucerne she saw him waiting in the center of the gate, and knew that her time was almost gone. She entered Lucerne and when she reached the Cloud Tower she was met at the entrance by Alice Lovie of whom had had heard of her arrival in the town, and had moved to keep it a secret. Alice would take Brooke into the Sky Towers, and the two would finally get another chance at attacking eachother. The two would at first trade jabs at eachother verbally but as the fight continued and Bella arrived the fight became physical as Brooke physically attacked Brook of whom was the point of all of her rage, and the main reason that she was in the position that she was in. As this happened Emmett McCarty barged in and was able to get Brooke under control, and got her out of the Skytowers, and towards the Kings Keep where William was. Emmett knew how much Brooke meant to William and he did his best to keep her under control and safe as they moved towards the Kings Keep, and along the way he attempted to send for Leven but she wasn't in the city as she had travelled home briefly to Sunspear Hold.
As she arrived at the Kings Keep she found William standing at a table surrounded by both Jasper Hale, and Robb Starke. As she approached completely in tears he took her into his arms and took her into a side room. In the room she continued to cry, and he couldn't get her to explain what was wrong, and it was as this was happening that she opened her eyes and saw that the Dark Man was in the room with them. This time when she saw him she didn't cry out or try and get away from him, she just accepted that she was gone. In that moment she looked away from the Dark Man and back to the William, and she would smile at him before kissing him on the lips. The two would be intimate one more time, before she said her goodbyes to him, and when he tried to follow her, he was stopped by Alice Lovie of whom didn't want him to get in trouble with the people if they saw what was happening. Watching her walk away was one of the toughest things he had ever done, but what happened next would be far more painful to not just William but to many people throughout the valley.
Brooke would leave the Kings Keep and walk for nearly an entire day before finally the Dark Man brought her towards a waterfall where he waited beside her for her to kill herself. Brooke in that moment took off the necklase that William had given her all those years before, and held it close to herself for a time before she finally set it down on the ground beside what she assumed would be the site that they would believe she jumped from. When she finally did jump off the side she carried with her the curse he had done to her, and in this moment she became a "Daughter of Flemeth".
A Desperate Gamble
| A Desperate Gamble |
Something has to change here. Were dying a slow death unless we do something out of the box.
Following the continueing growth in conflict with the Kingdom of Bolten William Lovie begin to come to the conclusion that he had to do something drastic or he risked watching all the good he'd done come crashing down around him. He had been constantly reading the diaries of his ancestors and from the writings of his great grandfater William Lovie I. he learned that the Dragon had changed everything. He came to believe that the success of House Lovie in the beggining was based on more then just the skill of William and that he needed the same trump card. William Lovie would summon from the Order of the Dragon Taylor Swift of whom he knew through Edward Cullen, and he grilled her for the truth on what the Dragons were really doing in the mountains. Taylor Swift would reveal to him that only the most senior of the Order had ever actually seen a dragon, and that she would summon a man of whom could tell him the truth of what they were. When he went to the shadow Council and told them that he planned on going to the Lucernian Mountains and attempting to meet with the Dragons, and from this he would bring them back into the fold. At first the others were so shocked by what he had said that they didn't take it seriously but when he didn't laugh along with them they begin to understand the truth that he in fact wasn't joking. At first noone spoke or even moved but after minutes of silence Jasper got up from the table and begin to become very angry that Andrew would even contimplate something so stupid.
After the argument of the Shadow Council Jasper went back to his room with Alice where he begin throwing things around the room which obviously brought about the attention of his fiance Alice Lovie. When Jasper told Alice about what was happening she immediatly knew that she was partly to blame for this as she had told him during the trip back that he was as great as William Lovie, and that anything he had done would pale in comparison to what he would eventually be remembered for. Realizing this she immediatly left the room with Jasper - who was shocked that Alice had just up and left - and went upstairs to Andrew's room where she walked in on Andrew and Bella in the middle of having sex. Seeing this was the first of what would become a growing problem for Alice as she begin to accept some simple truths in her life that she had never allowed herself to accept before.
Telling Alice the Truth
When Bella had removed herself from William and they were properly clothed she sat down on the edge of the bed and apoligized to William for telling him what she had, and she begged him not to go through with the Dragon plan. Bella stood beside him, but she to wanted to know why William would be so absolutely reckless. Bella went through the lists of things that gave them an advantage in any upcoming conflict, and by this point Alice was tearing up but still attempting to help Bella by also saying all the positives of a future conflict with the Empire. William explained to the two of them that the situation was hopeless in the long run unless they did something drastic and he could only think of doing this. He had taken out cities, and annexxed half of western Westros but he still was nothing more then a peanut in comparison to the power of the larger Empires in Europe. The three of them argued back and forth for some time and finally Ashley would appear at the door and she had a bad dream, and wanted them to get her a drink. Bella would leave to help Ashley with that, and when she did William reached for Alice and pulled her into a hug and whispered to her the words that force her to take his side of the coming debate.
With the words said by William there was a sence of understanding between the siblings and she would help him to convinse Bella of the reasonings behind the decision, and despite wanting to believe that her husband could sucede where it seemed noone could Bella was not willing to accept his death and refused to agree but would support him. Bella would return carrying a sleeping Ashley of whom they laid in their bed, and then went out to the balcony. The three of them would talk, and this time Alice now supported him, and after basically being double teamed for many minutes William went inside to check on Ashley and Bella and Alice spoke, and Bella wondered what he could have said to her to make her agree to this. Alice refused to tell the truth, and instead simply made excuses for William and Bella left frustrated.
The MountainWith the decision made and everyone basically giving up on resisting him outside of Jasper who was following him night and day in an attempt to atleast join him, William knew that the time had come. He simply needed Taylor Swift to come through for him and bring the man of the Order of the Dragon to tell him where he needed to fly to in order to find the Dragons. Days after the arguements and of Jasper following him, and Taylor arrived back in the city this time bringing Valian Kone of whom would meet with William after he commanded Draco Highmore to create a brief task for Jasper that would give William a few moments to meet in secret with the man. Once Jasper was occupied he would make his way to the Sky Towers esates where he met with Valian, and Valian would reveal to him the truth of the mountains. Valian told him about how the Dragons were barely ever seen but they had several nesting areas, and Valian would tell the king the location of two of them of which would allow William to find them, but he did warn him not too. William would convince Levan to trick Jasper into believing that William was going somewhere else when in fact he was leaving. The moment that William watched Levan take Jasper away from the Sky Towers he left a letter behind with Hayden Percy for Alice, Bella and Levan along with the Shadow Council before he got on Keenclaw and begin his flight to the north. His letters had told him that William Lovie had once travelled to the home of Stragnarax on his back and had said that the markings for the home of the Dragons of the mountains was marked by a large monolith some sixty feet high and glowing black. As he flew he thought back over all the things that he had done, and contimplated the last minute decisions he had left in the letters and finally as he flew he saw a Black creature flying to him. In the distance he didn't know if perhaps this was one the dragons, but everything he had read and when Jacob had discussed them they were clearly white creatures. Seeing it coming closer he saw it to be a sort of horse with wings, and it carried a female rider clothed in robes. As they got closer he was horrified and shocked to see the rider to be Brooke Scott, he let go of the reigns in shock. Keenclaw kept steady as they flew upwards into the sky without William guiding Keenclaw, and the Griffin in an angry snarl trying to attack the Black pegasus that Brooke was riding on. Seeing Brooke nearly shattered all the control that William had been building up since her death, and as he reached out for her she calmed him with gesture. William nearly wept at the sound of her voice as they spoke, and she revealed to him that she wasn't just coming this one time but in fact he could find her again, and that all he had to do was think about where she might be in the mountains.
As Brooke flew away the world seemed to snap back into focus as instead of feeling sad that she was gone, he felt the hope from the fact that she had said that he would see her again, and even if he believed her an illusion of his mind he somehow was okay with that. What man or women wouldn't want to see their loved ones again even if they were gone he thought. By this point Jasper realized that the things Leven had sent him to do were completely trickery and William wasn't where she said he would be, and the two would come together and get on their Griffins and attempt to find William before he was too far out.
So caught into his own thinking was he that he only barely noticed the large black monolith the writings had spoken of. The Monolith was knocked down as if spit in half, and as he landed he sat for a moment on the ground before getting up. As he walked followed by Keenclaw he was alerted by Keenclaw to the arrival of Jasper and Levan who flew in behind him on their griffins. Wondering immediatly about whether his meeting with Brooke had been noticed this fear went away when Jasper responded that they had flew with all speed and only saw him finally when he was sitting on the ground. Realizing that he wasn't going to be able to convinse them to leave and silently happy to have his friends with him they walked forward towards very likely death. Jasper scouted ahead accompanied by Brightclaw the littermate of Keenclaw. While he scouted ahead Leven would try to get William to tell him what had happened, and despite his reservations about being thought to be insane he told Leven about seeing Brooke and despite the fact that she didn't think Brooke was actually there she held his hand as they walked to make him understand that she was there for him. He would give her a tender kiss as they walked and despite knowing why he had done it she couldn't help but wish it was for the romantic reasons that she wanted to kiss him
The Mad God
Main Article : Conversations
As they walked forward holding hands they walked over the hill and saw Jasper flying towards them chased by an absolutely massive Dragon. Falling back over the hill they ran the other way only to find another dragon fly behind them and cut them off. The sides were then closed by more human sized creatures that were weaponized and didn't have wings but looked distinctly dragonoid. Falling back into a small circle they were joined by Jasper, and they watched the dragons approach them, and waited when the largest amongst them steps towards them and demands to know why they are here before they are killed. As Stragnarax nears them he visably recoils as he relizes that William Lovie's ancestor is amongst them and demands to know what kind of horrible taint William has since he is a decendent of the one that killed the honorable William Lovie I. William attempts to convinse him of his honor but Stragnarax throughout the conversation shows signs of madness and is unable to be convinsed and is unable to be persuaded to let them live and prepares to kill the group when Lornax arrives and stands between his father and the group. Not willing to kill his son he roars to the sky before flying away leaving Lornax, Flarnax and many Draknoids.
Lornax and Flarnax would attempt to better understand the reasoning behind why William had risked everything to come here, and why they should listen. William was able to come to a sort of understanding with the curious Lornax of whom he convinced he was no harm too and he simply wanted to regain what had been lost between the Dragons and the humans of Lucerne. Flarnax would make the argument that the days of the dragon were sliding away and if nothing changed they would be wiped out. Lornax would agree and they both said that if the time came for trouble or they needed help then they would be able to count on the White Dovah by their side. William as they were leaving made Lornax and Flarnax aware that the Dragons were rising in the east under the Empire of Dragonstone, and that these dragons appeared to be of the Red Dovah but were not led by a very large dragon as the White were. Lornax was shocked that the Red Dovah were reintegrating with the humans and this would lead to even more discussion of the need for the White Dovah to join with Lucerne, but both Dragons made it sadly clear that it would take time for the relationship to return to what it was, but the two of them were with Lucerne.
Return of Riley Scott
William travel to Forks on their way back to Lucerne from Fairmarket. On the boat ride back after a long talk with Morrigan, she takes matters into her own hands and finally reveals to William that she wants him in what ever way she can have him, and despite his marriage he sleeps with Leven. Arriving in Forks they are met on the docks by Charles Swan of whom they talk with for a time, but this ends when Riley Scott arrives alone on horseback, and wishes to return with them to Lucerne for a time. Riley reveals to him that Dan Scott is conspiring to make him and heir and he loves his family and doesn't want to see them come to harm through the menipulations of Dan Scott. Leven goes with William as he talks with Riley, and after Riley leaves with Thomas for a while he tells her that he is amazed at the changes in his son, and as they watch as he spends time with Thomas, and longs to see his three oldest sons become friends. Leven once again talks to Morrigan of whom congratulates her on gaining William in the way she did, and Leven shocked to know Morrigan knew begins to take Morrigan into her confidence revealing the arrangement she offered William and he seemingly agreed to.
