Comment here and ask me any question you want, I promise to answer truthfully no matter what it is.--But only one!
And then you have to post the same offer to your own journal.

We're curious how the government works in Kintostown.

More or less like most any other town in the Wulfenbach Empire, there's the local lord that's the leader, and a town council that's appointed to help supervise and run the town, and keep everything in check.

As well as send reports back to Wulfenbach, too.

I do not know if this remained when the town was taken over, I ran into two of the council members fleeing when I first found out about the takeover.

We were interested in the non-crisis situation. And that seems like a fairly reasonable way of running things.

I wasn't sure, so.

It kept the town running really well, to be completely honest, really effective, a sort of check and balance system that kept itself in check. I mean, the Lord has certain powers over the council--control over the Clanks, city defense, and he has the ability to appeal laws to the council.

The council runs day-to-day events, the courts, so on and so forth, and law enforcement within the city, as well as trade negotiations (although that usually requires the Lord or at least an of-age member of the House, depending on what sort of negotiations are being done).

Not terribly different from Arista, except for the basic differences in the royal family and the fact that we're not Clanks.

Huh! Goes to show you to go with what works, then, huh?

Otherwise, the Lord's fairly able to do as he pleases so long as it doesn't interfere with how the town's run, nor breach Wulfbenbach's Peace.

And I am thankful that you aren't Clanks, I like the Foundling Guard members I have met so far.

One most certainly does.

An Empire whose sole purpose seems to be to enforce non-invasion policies is certainly interesting -- sorry to touch further on what must be a sensitive topic at this time.

And the feeling's quite mutual by all accounts.

It's fine.

More or less, if it wasn't for Wulfenbach, the infighting between the Houses would probably still be going on. He got tired of it, came in, and took over with the motto 'Don't Make Me Come Over There'.

Really, it's almost amazing and hilarious how effective that threat is.

Either way, Wulfenbach was mainly trying to keep balance, and keep the Sparks from wiping each other out.

How do you keep your leg powered?

From: [identity profile] gears-of-gold.livejournal.com
Oh, that's easy.

It's a self winding system, so long as the chain keeps turning, it keeps winding itself, and as a back up, it winds as I move as well. If I bend my leg, the quiet clicking you might hear over the ticking is it winding up the backup system.

Of course, if my drive chain breaks, I end up having to limp awkwardly until I can get it replaced.

Gosh, that's neat.

And it's so pretty, too.

Heh, thanks.

And it is, at that. I always try to have a brass chain to keep it all matched and gold colored.

Ha, I thought that was to prevent sparks.

I'd say that I wished you wore short skirts more often, but I can't think of a way to say it without sounding all leering.

A beneficial side effect, that, rest assured.

I.. would, but the clothing from the times beyond mine makes me admittedly rather wary, the costume was just that, a costume and the mindset didn't bother me (and it was actually really comfortable, in looking back).

I am used to longer skirts and dresses, mainly because that is what I was raised in, not to mention it is the standard of most of my world at the moment.

Ah, I can see the difference there.

And no look at your legs is worth you feeling uncomfortable. Lovely as they are. :D

Even if they do not match? (That is a joke, as I am unsure how entirely to express such in a text medium)

I would say that the sum of you is so charming that any unusualness of the parts merely adds to it.
