I have been playing a medieval hood for a while now, located in Veronaville. I don´t have the patience and language skills needed for a story, but still I would like to share some images and infos about the families I play. I don´t know how long my talkative mood will last, but have at least the start!
The hood started out as a Victorian/Steampunk Hood but slowly and quietly morphed into a medieval hood. This doesn´t really make any sense, but that is the way it was.
The three Capulet siblings Tybalt, Juliet and Hermia lived with their grandfather after their parents had died in an accident.
Tybalt was an insecure, clumsy teenager who struggled to come to terms with his preference for men by constantly getting into fights with other boys, preferably the Montague boys Mercutio and Romeo.
He had sort of an affair with Stella Roth, a much older woman and married to Mortimer Roth, and for a moment she thought of leaving her husband for young Tybalt, but then decided to stay with him.
Tybalt was devastated.
Until he took a closer look at Puck, his younger sister´s friend. But he soon realized that Puck was way out of his league. And he became even more depressed.
To top it all off, Tybalt´s grandfather Consort decided that he as his successor should earn his own spurs, so Tybalt had to move out of the spacious Capulet Manor and find a place of his own.
To say Tybalt was miffed was clearly an understatement.
Things took a change when Tybalt stumbled upon Puck at the local pub. He gathered all of his courage to approach Puck, who - surprise, surprise - didn´t mind the attention. Not at all.
Then Puck grew up.
And moved in with Tybalt, bringing some elven flair into the humble hut. Tybalt was not too happy at first.
But after a few weeks living with Puck, he knew he was the one.
They visited the Temple of Venus near Veronaville to receive their blessings.
Other citizens of Veronaville went there on a pilgrimage, too.
They married, and were allowed to move back into Capulet Manor.
Puck, being his sexy as heck self:
When you´re in love, even burnt pancakes taste great.
Becoming a father was not so easy for Puck. But they managed, and had two cute children, Paris and Allasea.
Especially Puck showed a great amount of dedication raising their kids.
As an interesting side-note, I am intrigued both kids have blond hair when clearly their parents are redheads.
Both Paris and Allasea turned out really cute.

When Paris joined the military training camp, he became unhappy very quickly. He hated spending his days and nights at the barracks, learning how to fight was not what he wanted.
Aelfric Gossamer, Oberon Gossamer´s son, couldn´t agree more.
Tybalt, who himself was in the military, was rather upset about Paris´ disinterest. It took Puck a lot of sweet talking and persuasion to let Paris spend his training year with the Elves.
Paris was overjoyed when he heard the news.
In the meantime, Allasea met Benoit Montague, Mercutio´s son, and fell in love.
Madly in love. I expect you two to remain faithful until you are grown up and can be married!
Have a totally unrelated picture of Veronaville´s gardener, because he is adorable:
Paris was elated when he came to the Elven Realm. He met Laethlaeril Druindar and his two sons Vaeril and Khyssoun.
He stayed until his birthday, and friends and family came to his birthday.
For the time being, this ends the little tale of Tybalt Capulet. Expect more when the stars align again in the proper position for me to be in a sharing mood :-)
Have a picture of that beautiful elf Laethlaeril as a parting gift:
