  1. I have such strong reactions to your writing, and the best part is I never realize when the reaction is changing. I was enjoying the creepiness, and then somewhere along the way I started feeling so sad – well, not quite sad, but an ache of some kind – but Drusilla is still smiling, hasn’t changed her tone. I love how you so sneakily do that! It’s understated, but so powerful.

    • I think Drusilla is like most people in the world–she walks around being herself, not necessarily flaunting this or that part into their faces… but, still, being exactly who she is. She is happy, especially around those who contribute to her happiness. And she is not shy when it comes to sharing her feelings and ideals. The latter can often make us squirm a bit in our seats, methinks.

  2. I wasn’t sure where you were going with this, and then all of a sudden, BAM, there we are! I cut loose with a giant Baawwwhaha! Love love love this story.

  3. Ahhh, perfect entree… a delicious bite (or more) of delight here Ms Wicked 🙂 my tastebuds are tingling and I am working up an appetite for what is next on the menu… wee Dru, love her sibling devotion… Great-Grand-Papa surely can help ‘unground’ her, hehe xox

  4. My goodness this is good 😀 I am so very enchanted by Drusilla’s character (I’ve loved vampires since days of Twilight series) absolutely adore the way you have depicted her attempts to find a date for her sister 🙂 I m rushing off to read what happens next! Yay!❤️

  5. Great letter to Great-Grand-Papa! Who of us has only heard a bite (oops, I meant bit) of a conversation and ran with it. After all, she was only trying to make her sister happy and get her a date…grounded for a decade? Silk lined coffins? I am on Drusilla’s side on this one. She tried! Great letter…on to the next!

  6. I remember Drusilla’s letters from before but it’s always so sweet to get reacquainted and read her letters again, after all that is what is so special about letters. You can tie them with ribbon and keep to re read at your pleasure, unlike an email. Thanks for undoing the ribbon.
