The wooden doors to the basement creaked open. A silhouette of a man trailed down the stairs. He grumbled about how "demeaning" and "embarrassing" this was.
He reached the ground with a loud huff. Finally taking in his surroundings, what he saw in front of him was an absolute amazement. A woman with long brown hair sat on the floor. The last time he had seen her, she had looked perfectly healthy. Now she looked frail and malnourished. She picked away at various items and put them back in their proper spots.
The man's red eyes filled with hope for the women to be who he suspected. "Lizzie?" His words were barely a whisper. Elizaveta – as she preferred to be called – looked up. Her greens met his reds with an equal amount of small hope.
"Gil." She breathed. For the first time in years she felt truly happy.
Gilbert gave a big grin. "Well aren't you a sight for sore eyes." He sat down beside her. He remembered where they were once more and lost his signature smil

Brisbane, Commonwealth of Australia and New Zealand, 2015.
“Glass of whiskey please…”, a young British accented man sat at the bar of a busy nightclub, the past few months living in the city were very different from the charred remains of Europe and North America.
The glass of whiskey arrived in front of him as he pulled out a few notes to pay for the drink “Thanks” the man quickly skulled the drink and went outside, the bright lights of the cities CBD were enough to remind him of pictures he’d seen of New York and London, now reduced to ashes.
A tap on the shoulder caused him to turn around suddenly, “Yes?” he looked at a young woman, no more than 25 years old wearing a uniform of some description holding a briefcase. “My superiors asked me to give you this briefcase” the woman spoke with what seemed to be a Swiss German accent, “We hope you’ll be
Dawnverse: Apollonia's Insight Part 1"My mother Helen III, the Basilissa of the Basileia Rhomaion, once took me by my right hand and lead me down the hallways of the palace of the Maiden of Dawn. Eventually we arrived in the dynastic gallery, where the portraits of past rulers of Rhomaion and their immediate relatives were displayed, and we stopped in front of the portraits of my aunt Helen IV of Alexandria and my cousin Hypatia of Alexandria. I wasn't surprised by the strong resemblance between mother and daughter, both of them had green eyes, dark raven hair, small noses, sharp well defined cheeks and finely tanned almost sand coloured complexions. But despite their differences to my mother and myself I couldn't help but notice the similarities between the four of us, their cheeks were out cheeks, their noses our noses and their postures our postures. Their divinity as plain to all who looked upon them as our own, purified, strengthened, maintained and pass own by the most sacred of unions between brother and sisteHeliosMegistos
Anniversary of our First MarriageAsk-AusHun
Elizaveta stayed in the living room with the television on. She lied on the couch, only half watching what was on the screen. Thoughts wandered through her mind as she blankly stared at the screen. Roderich wandered into the room, looking through the book shelf. Elizaveta turned her eyes towards her husband, hardly turning her head.
“You need help looking for something, Roddy?” she asked. Roderich jumped a little, not even realizing she was there in the room until she spoke.
“Oh! Elizaveta, I did not see you there. Ah, nein, it is alright, I know where it is.” It took him a few minutes more to find an old music book of his. Elizaveta laid down on her back, turning her head towards the television since he seemed to get what he needed. Before leaving the room, Roderich grabbed the rim of the doorway and turned back,
“Oh, by the way, happy anniversary.” He said. Elizaveta sat up again,
"What do you mean? It’s not
“Jó reggelt, Apa.”
“What do you want for breakfast, Apa?”
“Have a good day, Apa!”
“Welcome home, Apa!”
“Are you read for dinner, Apa?”
All day, Elizaveta had been referring to Roderich as this strange word. He knew it it was something in her language, and it sounded so familiar, but he just couldn’t seem to remember. He sat down at the dinner table with a perplexed look on his face. She set their plates down in front of them and took her seat. Seeing the puzzled expression on his face, she giggled a little and asked,
“Is something the matter, Apa?”
“....Why do you keep calling me that?” He asked.
“Tell me, Roderich,
The couple lay in bed together, Elizaveta with her arms around her husband, fast asleep, but Roderich was wide awake. He laid in bed, eyes wide open, staring up at the ceiling.
How embarrassing! He thought, Why couldn’t I do it? I should have been able to, but I couldn’t! A mere simple task such as moving a sofa- A sofa! Am I really that frail? He let out a sigh.
The two had been spring cleaning for the entire week, and that day they had cleaned the living room. For Elizaveta to sweep, the sofa in the middle of the room needed to be moved. She had asked Roderich to do this for her as she continued to sweep elsewhere for the time being. He nodded, thinking that it would be easy. He had moved that very sofa before, but this time around, it had just seemed so much heavier. Was it him? Was he getting older and weaker? Or maybe it was the sofa... No. That just didn’t make sense. Seeing him struggling to move the couch, Elizaveta set down her

Yes I'm a Monarchist.So I've recently been asked why I'm a monarchist and what I believe/think about the system and democratic systems. This isn't the first I've been asked either so I figured I might as well at least try and be clear about it so I can direct people to something the next time I'm asked.HeliosMegistos
Starting Disclaimer: Before I begin however this isn't intended as propaganda or what not simply a statement of my views and it is clear of the left and right political divide. I have not, do not and will not ever be left or right as I reside firmly in the center between the two since I agree with bits and pieces of both and strongly dislike and disagree with elements of both especially these days. So I will not be arguing or debating politics if any one attempts such, I don't care if your a conservative or a socialist or what not as long as you don't shove your opinions at me...
Start: I'm a monarchist somewhere in between the constitutionalist and absolutist corners. I believe a monarch should have more t
Dawnverse: Timeline (draft)1018 AD/-42 ND: The Rhomaion under Basil II "the Bulgar Slayer" conquers Bulgaria ending a bitter fifty year long struggle. This concludes the Rhomaion conquest of Bulgaria.HeliosMegistos
1037 AD/-23 ND: The Seljuk Empire is founded by Tughril Beg. It becomes a major force in the Middle East and will be a major rival "and threat to" the Basileia Rhomaion for the next century and a half.
1049 AD/-11 ND: Pope Leo IX is elected as Pope In Rome. Tensions between Rome and Constantinople will eventually reach a breaking point leading to Pope Leo IX and Patriarch of Constantinople Michael Cerularius mutually excommunicating each other in the years to follow, splitting the church.
1054 AD/-6 ND: The East-West Schism occurs over a dispute concerning the legitimacy of the Donation of Constantine which supposedly proved that the Pope was the rightful head of the church as heir and Apostolic successor to Peter. The Schism divides Chalcedonian Christianity into Western Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. Te
Suggestions and Concepts for IndiaAs of the current drafts the Basileia Rhomaion has slowly but steadily pushed into Persia as time has passed and eventually forces it's way to the western banks of the Indus River in modern day Pakistan while it's northern most thrust ends around the area of the salt water seas of Central Asia eg the Caspian and Aral Seas.Dawnverse
Expanding this far is a pretty taxing process and takes fighting through the Mongols and indigenous Muslim populations naturally opposed to Rhomaion religion and starts to lead to over-extension as even Telepathy has a limit to how much it helps with administration and the subduing of the populace.
This leaves us with interaction between the Indian and Hellenic worlds, the Celestial and Dharmic religions. Naturally a lot of cross contact, trade and potentially conquest is going to result so what exactly should happen with India ?
Beyond Rhomaion reaching the Indus I have no real clues as to what should eventually happen in this part of the world or what with it. Aufi
Starting UpWell the groups up and I've uploaded the work I've currently finished and will see if Royal Psycho will let me submit the Dawnverse map he did for me as a request since it's so damned good.Dawnverse
Mdc & Aufi if you know any people on DA that you trust and think might do be interested in working on the Dawnverse now that's it's a collaborative project just let me know and I'll send invites .
Right for the first order of business as you can all see I haven't produced a whole lot of work due to working slowly, constantly revising things I'm not satisfied with and obviously having work on it alone until now. So the general concept of the Dawnverse is fixed and so is some of it's history however that leaves a lot of Rhomaion history and rulers to add in and such including things open to additions and revisions (anyone but Persephone and Apollonia II) as well as the wider world that I have only vague concepts for so if anyone has some ideas please fire away in this blog.
The general guideline I'v
