[Appearance]

Quote:
Marcheline stands at a taller height of five foot six, with brown hair and brown eyes. She inherited her mother's thin stature but her fathers ears- which she somewhat hates. She almost always has a smile upon her face and is constantly giggling. Did I forget to mention her clothes- she has tons of dresses, far more than most women have. She has many and even has been known to share them with her sister. Marcheline refuses to wear the same dress twice.

[Personality]
Quote:
One can look at Marcheline and after only spending a few moments with you can tell you two things: one, she is not very bright and two- she is shallow. Of course neither of these things are considered horrible, but to others spending only a few moments in her company can prove exhausting. Marcheline appears to only have two interests in her life: looking beautiful and having any other materialistic possession that can keep her looking pretty. She adores compliments and often times will fish for them. Marcheline, being a twin and a daughter of a younger brother in a province family knows she will perhaps never be in the spotlight but she is determined to make a mark on the world somehow and she will do so in the mark of fashion.

Marcheline does not like to be outshined in her dress. She at times has a short temper when asked about clothing- she would be utterly embarrassed to see another lady at court wearing the same thing she has on. How dreadful that would be! She likes to think of herself as a trendsetter. Everyone should be looking at how she dresses and what she wars for Marcheline believes herself as the newest and best in fashion. Her highly spirited opinion of herself when it comes to dress also makes her quite snobbish. Marcheline is quick to tear down another lady she believes isn’t dressing properly but not without some due respect- she always offers advice for the woman afterwards. She is also rather adamant on keeping her appearance neat and proper. Marcheline does not like to become dirty, have a hair out of place or have her clothes ruined. She will quickly become distraught whenever this occurs.

While vain, Marcheline is not particularly bright. This isn’t to say she is a bumbling idiot, but if one were to ask her why the sky is blue she will answer it is because the sky reflects off the ocean. She particularly does not get social cues in normal conversation in fact- Marcheline particularly loves to talk and chatter and will go on for days unless someone stops her. She is deeply offended by this but it is quickly forgotten as she rather has a short attention span. Marcheline is easily distracted by jewelry, dresses or even a handsome man. In fact her greatest weaknesses are these things and she particularly cannot stay away from them.

Marcheline in most aspects appears a proper court lady. She can dance (perhaps her particularly best talent) and she does it well. She has poise and manners, but her greatest weakness is that she is seemingly hopeless at navigating court politics. Marcheline s an eternal optimist. She strives in seeing the best in everyone and is nave to think that people have evil in them. She sees the world through rose colored lenses and as a result has not seen hardships of war, hunger, or any suffering- she vehemently denies them. She doesn’t believe that there are starving people in the world, growing up as a noblewoman and she would be utterly shocked to find out about this. She has not faced the harsh realities of life and could be in for quite a wake up call when put in a situation where she must face them. Marcheline is particularly not completely religious as well. She follows the old gods and observes many religious traditions and customs as proper for a woman of her station but she is not overtly religious, perhaps only enough that is acceptable for a lady of her rank.

The part of Marcheline that strives for attention is in part due to her appearance. Marcheline has been told for much of her life that she is lovely and of course she uses this to her advantage. She loves being showered with gifts, compliments, dresses- something her father has done for her and her mother, although more so her mother. Yet her parents took care not to spoil her too much. Marcheline is particularly close to her family. She would do anything for them and is particularly close to her twin sister, Joesphine whom she considers her best friend and who holds no other spot in her view. The sisters are two halves of a whole and Marcheline trusts her sister with anything. Her loyalty to the DeLauncey name is of the highest esteem and Marcheline would do anything her father and her cousin Cassius would tell her to do. She looks up both to her mother and her cousin Eveline for setting examples of being proper women of the DeLauncey house and Marcheline does her best to try to imitate them to not put her house to shame. She carries a bit of pride as her mother is a Princess and often extends this pride onto herself. She is proud of of her royal background and likes to think of herself as more beautiful because of it.

An idealistic dreamer as well, Marcheline has a glorified notion of love and romance. She wishes for nothing more than a knight to sweep her off her feet and take her off into the sunset on his white stallion. Yet the part of*Marcheline*that loves compliments and gifts loves to receive attention from men. She has only once seen a bare-chested man in her life and the sight of him made her blush- a stable hand that she had a crush on when she was thirteen. Yet Marcheline knows of the mechanics of physical love between a man and a woman she just is not aware of where that will lead. She does not realize flirting (which she often partakes in) can lead to other things and would be greatly flabbergasted at the results if a man were to approach her for anything beyond a chaste kiss on the hand and a few verses of poetry whispered into her ear. Marcheline certainly loves to be wooed- poems, flowers, tokens of affection and although she is still a year away from marriageable age she hopes she will be wed to a young and handsome knight and certainly not a horrid, bloated old man. That thought disgusts her.

[History]

Quote:
Born in Forsilvra in Castle Licorn, Marcheline DeLauncey was born seven minutes after her twin sister Josephine, the younger twin but one of the many children of Gaius DeLauncey and Isabelle Fontenot DeLauncey. Her mother a member of the royal family, Marcheline took this with a sense of pride. Her father was a councilor after all and she was the daughter of a princess- so of course to Marchie this meant she had to act like a princess too. She was always cautious as a toddler, and early on developed a love for dolls- after she realized she could dress them in practically anything. She was always a bit more sensitive, crying whenever someone got mud on her dress or the boys in the castle were playing too roughly with her. She constantly was holding her sister Josephine's hand clung to her relentlessly. Josie was her best friend- her twin, to Marchie there is nothing that will separate her from her (unless it is a cute boy...).

However her somewhat happy life at court was interrupted when a stupid boy had hurt Josephine and her father had went after the boy and from then on the girls and their little brother were whisked back to the Hollows to be raised. Marcheline was not happy with this decision as Vandermark was much quieter than court, but after all she got used to it. She took to her lessons, although her tutors had a hard time getting her to pay attention. Marcheline only wanted to get new dress after new dress. She was passable in her lessons and took to dance the easiest, and of course, she always made sure her appearance and her dresses were in order. Marcheline didn't like going outside to play with the other children- no, she preferred her dolls or even dancing. She hated horses, hawking or anything that caused her to not look her best. Marcheline immersed herself in the world of song and dance, hoping one day a knight would sweep her off her feet and she'd be the lady of a grand castle. She took to her cousin Eveline as well, trying to emulate her- although Marcheline herself thinks she dresses the best.

When the plague hit she wasn't sure what was going on, and then with the death of her cousin Rufus she mourned greatly for his passing and resumed her life at normal. She became scared of losing her other family, Josephine especially. With the return of Cassius to lead them, she knows she will be wed soon. Marcheline hopes she is wed to a handsome knight. She doesn't want to be married to an old man or even a ugly one. She wants her husband to be handsome, take her off on his horse and win tourneys in her name. She day dreams of the day she will find her handsome knight- living in a world full of song and innocence.
Written by Tink

And then came all the mistakes. The flirting with Lucius DeLauncey, kissing him in the woods, until he mistook that for advances. Kisses instead of cards. Caught in the night when Lucius tried to kiss her sister, her parents and Cassius quickly betrothed her to Liam Forthwind. In theory, the match was good, and Marchie would be a banner lady. But she didn't want a lord, she wanted a knight. She didn't want a castle, she wanted a hero. And from what she knows of Liam Forthwind, they are nothing alike. He is books and study and knowledge. She is dresses and parties and fun. He is inventing and thinking. She is dancing and talking. Oil and water, night and day, and husband and wife.

She is clinging to her sister, dreading the day they leave for the Mark, leave her there with her new family and her boring husband, his strange sister's and his distance father.

-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]

Dreading.

All her dreams, dashed. What was left except being a stuffy wife and a strapped down mother? Where were the adventures and the fun? The parties and the courting? She would never have the knight who brought her a rose and asked her favor at a tourney now. Who would want to give a rose to the wife of Liam Forthwind! She was a wolf stuck with a reindeer.

Marcheline stepped out onto the balcony of her new room, the one she shared with Liam-the-boring-Forthwind. She was surprised he had actually come to bed instead of falling asleep in his study. Weren't men and woman always supposed to sleep together as husband and wife? Hadn't that been what her parents always did? Instead it seemed that half the time Liam didn't really want to be around her.

Then again, she didn't really want to be around him. She hated it here. And her dream wedding had been nothing like she'd envisioned. Ok, so she could admit she liked the lemon cakes and dancing in the gardens, but the groom was supposed to fawn all over her, amazed with her beauty, complement her hair and her dress and the way she gracefully glided over the dance floor...

And Liam had gone off with his father for half the wedding to deal with something, instead of staying firmly attached to her side.

She thought she heard shuffling behind her, Liam perhaps getting out of bed. She pulled her cloak around her tighter, even though the morning felt muggy and warm, and hoped he didn't see her standing out there.

Marchie wanted her knight. Not... not him.
