    I Hope You're Happy

    14 August 1887
    Princess,
    I hope you're bloody happy. I don't know what you said to your crazy family and your crazy sister, but I'm getting shipped off to Canada tomorrow so that I can maybe go be an embarrassment to the family name on some other continent where it will annoy you lot less.

    I say all this like you have any bloody clue what you did, which probably isn't the case. I say all this like there's anything you could fucking do about it, which definitely isn't. I say this like you even knew what you were doing, which you probably don't. Like you even know what I was trying to do, which you definitely don't.

    No one's going to understand this, not ever, but I swear, I was trying to do the right thing for you.

    I don't know why I'm writing this; it'll just end up being one more bloody letter I never send. Merlin, if you could see all the letters I never sent you. Maybe things would have ended up differently. But it's too late for that, and I don't know why I'm writing this now--I guess just because I'm already packed and I don't have shit else to do unless I want to go drinking, and Aldous would probably be upset if I missed the boat to Canada because I was hungover.

    I hope you end up with 'Ned' and I hope he makes you happy. He'll be better for you than I ever could have been. I hope that all gets arranged while I'm in Canada, so that I don't have to hear about it and pretend I don't care. Maybe Canada won't be so bad, after all--at least I won't accidentally run into you there.

    Reuben wrote this letter on August 14th and did not intend to send it. However, after he leaves on the 15th a well-intentioned house elf might find it on his desk and assume he forgot to send it before he left on his trip. Ellory might get it any time after the 16th, whenever works best for your plot development. Or if you'd prefer she might not get it at all, but that's less fun.

    Mr. Crouch,

    I feel foolish for responding to your letter. I should not have opened it in the first place I bet that is exactly what you want from me. You don't want me to catch any peace, do you?

    Do not call my sister crazy. Evelyn did what she thought was best to protect me. You have a sister yourself. What would you have done if you found your sister in tears after someone had written her those horrible words?

    That being said, I am not some heartless, 'crazy' hag who takes pleasure out of this. I never wanted to get you disowned. I should have and I am foolish for not taking pleasure out of your misery, but I am not. It does not bring me joy that I may have caused you suffering. This must make you so happy. I bet that is exactly what you want to hear from me.

    I don't know why I am even bothering with this. You're probably not even that upset about what happened. You will probably love to be away from your stuffy family in some foreign land. You'll probably find some new, naive 'Princess' to charm while you are there.

    E. P.
