fenella: (cute!)
Vania of Conte is a horrible little girl. I, for one, am terrified of her.

Princess Vania doesn't care for Lady Keladry of Mindelan.

Vania doesn't care for the way that Father's frown lines deepen when someone mentions the Lady Knight, or how he becomes judiciously fair-minded. She doesn't like the look of admiration that creeps across Roald's features, only a bit begrudging, and then that look of self-loathing that inevitably follows. And she detests the way that Duke Nealan abandons her scrapes and bruises as he stares off into a fantasy world of perfect, boring, self-righteous Lady Keladrys.

And now, the latest on an ever-growing list of crimes, the wretched woman's gone and stolen Jasson from them.

"Hello," said Keladry, smiling down at her and bowing as per protocol. "Jasson's told us so much about you."

In her head, Vania adds 'Tall' to the list of Mindelan's unfavourable traits. Making her acquaintance after years of subdued loathing, the Lady Knight is predictably smug and superior, drifting around at inappropriate heights. Like a disembodied head waiting for the perfect moment to snatch your unsuspecting brothers from the clutches of civilized, full-bodied company.

Vania smiles politely. She was raised to have manners, even if she doesn't always choose to use them.
