Inspired by NiChan, Skeet, and Jenny Sniper, and Knight of Plagues' idea, you can ask questions about Edward and Dorian Gracey, and I'll try to answer them in character to the best of my ability.
Seriously, ask whatever you want, as long as it doesn't go against the ToS and all that jazz. I just gotta say that you're probably going to have to be patient with me since I'm a student and working part-time at crazy-a** hours, so it might take me a bit to get back to you with an answer.
So yeah, you know what to do!
(Edward's answers will look like this, Dorian's will look like this))
To Mr. Edward Gracey - how did you and Ms. Annabel Lee Harlow meet?
About 3 years ago, I was at a Masquerade ball being thrown by one of my father's friends at their mansion. Nearly everyone of importance in New Orleans was there. For the most part, I kept to myself, since I was never particularly fond of society parties. However, a beautiful young lady in a blue dress caught my eye. I just had to know who she was! I introduced myself to her, and she said that her name was Annabel Lee Harlow. As cliche as it may sound, I swear I was instantly enamored with her. We waltzed the night away, and promised that we would meet again. Well, I am certain that you know where things went from then on.
To Mr. Dorian Gracey - did you and Ms. Annabel Lee Harlow ever meet? If so, what did you think of her?
Sadly, I never got the chance to meet her. You see, Edward and I had a bit of a falling out a few years prior (I believe it was about him inheriting the mansion after our father died), and we sort of weren't on speaking terms. During this time he had also met and had become betrothed to Annabel. I conveniently was not invited to the wedding... The only time I actually saw her, sadly was at her funeral. I'm certain that if I actually knew her, I would have liked her. She seemed like she must have been a lovely young woman, especially if my brother was so smitten with her.
To both Messrs. Gracey - what was it like growing up with each other? Any other siblings? Family life? Where did you grow up? What was your childhood like?
Dorian was an absolute nightmare as a child, even more of one than he is now, if you can believe that!
Oh please, Edward. He wasn't all that much better. In fact, the two of us would have been exceptionally worse as adults if it weren't for our butler, Ramsley. He was more of a father to us than our actual father.
Anyway, we had one other sibling, a younger sister named Emily. Our mother's older brother, who we just called Uncle G.H. also lived with us. Or at least he did up until our mum died. You see, after mother died, Uncle sort of... took it very badly. Father just shipped him off to an asylum, and he remained there for years.
Er- let's talk about some happier aspects of our childhood, shall we? Since our father owned a trading and shipping business, we moved around a lot as children. We briefly lived in Florida for a few years, when I was a toddler. We didn't move to our permanent home in New Orleans until a few years later, when Emily was born.
Dorian and I were both shipped off to an all boy's boarding school, since Ramsley told father it would be best for us if we were as educated as we possibly could be. I think the real reason is because no one wanted to tutor us.
At boarding school, I wasn't exactly the most popular boy. I was often teased for being a lot smaller and well... different from the other boys. Edward had a much easier time fitting in than I did. I didn't have all that many friends... well, except for one boy. Lawry Bronsted. I don't think I would have survived boarding school if it weren't for him. He and I remained... close for many years to come, even after we finished our schooling, and I went off to college... well, until there was an unfortunate... accident. I shall never forget him. *sighs*
Er- so there you have it. That pretty much was our childhood!
Hey Dorian! Did you ever get over your fear of storms? If so, how?
Well, I certainly don't know how you knew I was afraid of storms, but if you must know... it was a childhood friend... a dear, true, wonderful friend would hold me close. That calmed me down in... ways... ways no one else ever could. Let's just say that now whenever there is a storm, I no longer am terrified. Instead, I feel ways that I really should not be associating with thunder and lightning. As of more recent times, I now feel a great sense of loss... and sorrow whenever there is a storm. All I can think about is how I lost that dear friend, and I shall never be held like that by him ever again...
