I can't wait to read more! :)

Spoiler:
You named the first baby Myf! I wouldn't mention it if I weren't a wee bit obsessed with that name at the moment. The main character in one of my favorite books, The Rook, is name Myfanwy. I really can't wait to read more, and I promise it's not just because of the name!

I love seeing new name games starting up and this has made me so nostalgic for TS2- like I need to play that so badly! Good Luck :D

Update! Let's see if I can get the third one up before I leave the country (I want that bronze medal, darnit).

Thanks for the comments, Jess and Fiona!
Spoiler:
How cool that the name is actually in use! I just got it off a three-letter search on Behindthename.

Spoiler:
OMGOSH YAY! I don't think I've ever seen an Arizona before, I'm not even brave enough to try it! It will be so exciting to see her as heir


Also I'm the same with fridges when I can't be bothered to order groceries. It's not like you make much money on empty fridges so it simply can't be cheating

Just binge-read the first four chapters. This is a really fun read!

Spoiler:
Wait, do neutral witches get the mood-boost from the thrones of light? How about thrones of evil? Can they actually do both? Frankly, I've avoided neutral witches, because I thought they couldn't use the thrones. This could change everything.
