All Hallow's Eve in the Realm of the Real

In which Eva becomes human -
or her typist becomes The Duchess.

October 31st in the year of our Lord 2008. Transformation begins to take place somewhere in the eastern United States.

A woman, who normally animates pixels creating an avatar known as Eva Bellambi, Duchess of Loch Avie, Lady Chief of Clan Bellambi, The Red Rose of Caledon, Head of MI-5, Scientist, Distiller, Singer, Romantic - begins a transformation into the flesh and blood Duchess of Loch Avie.

This transformation takes place in order for the woman to attend a fabulous feast with Count Dracula, his Countess, and his minions, pets, and other guests in the Catacombs of a brew house not too far away from her home.

The following is documentation of that transformation:

Flesh and Blood Eva -ready to Dine with Count Dracula

The Count and his minions better not get out of line. The Duchess Stick is at hand.

"But first, on earth as Vampire sent,
Thy corpse shall from its tomb be rent:
Then ghastly haunt thy native place,
And suck the blood of all thy race;
There from thy daughter, sister, wife,
At midnight drain the stream of life;
Yet loathe the banquet which perforce
Must feed thy livid living corpse.
Thy victims are they yet expire
Shall know the demon for their sire,
As cursing thee, thou cursing them,
Thy flowers withered on the stem."
-Lord Byron (Giaour)

A couple of pirates dining with us begin to regret leaving those turtlenecks back on the ship.
The Count and Countess
Jack Sparrow and Elisabeth

Late into the night.....
Oh no! Has the Flesh and Blood Eva changed?
Or is this official fuzzy photo (tm) simply showing how this Eva is using Pirate Elisabeth as a human shield?
The world may never know.

All Hallow's Eve is indeed a time of Dark Magik, when Strange and Inexplicable Phenomena can occur. Perhaps the remarkable likeness between Duchess and typist facilitated the exchange.

Fuzzy pictures are usually the result of low light. Fuzzy pictures in bars are usually the result of too much self-medication. Not that those two things are mutually exclusive.

Very lovely. I hope Your Grace had a glorious time that night.

Her Grace, Eva Bellambi said...

Rhianon - low light and plenty of spiced wine, yes. And tons of fun!

Harper - thank you so much. We had a fantastic time and are already planning next year. Actually we learned that the brewery also runs murder mystery nights, too. Might have to check that out. ;-D

Never leave home without the Duchess stick!
