Eyyyy, it’s a Baby Leif storyline!
Depending on the latitude, Darkest Winter days in Sønheim can be as long as 6 hours, or as short as nonexistent. Guess which end of the spectrum Rocky Rapids is at.
Content warnings: nothing graphic onscreen, but this is about Leif adjusting to the realities of life as an indentured servant, including the compromised-consent sexual situations.
Rocky Rapids Guest Lodge — Black Peak district, Sønheim.
Season: Darkest Winter.
Ingrid: Welcome to your new home.
My name is Ingrid Vuorela. You can address me as “Manager Ingrid” or “Ma’am.” I’ll be your supervisor for the next two years — with an option to renew.
I have a special history in helping people like you adjust to their . . . new circumstances. Your turn. introduce yourself.
. . . Ten-ish years ago.
Leif: My name is Leif, ma’am. Leif P–
Ingrid: Stop! Rookie mistake. Forget the surname. For now, you’re “Leif of Rocky Rapids.”

I’m not particularly nervous, as this is what lead to the Leif we know and love. I’m just hoping we get more info on what actually accrued Leif’s Inherited Debt
The deep dark secret is…I just wanted to do a seasonal December storyline, and a flashback was the only way to work it in right now.
(I should clarify by *concerned* I mean worried about Leif’s mental health, because I definitely DO want to see it eventually)
Oh, the tattoo/fleurcode is different! I hadn’t put together “the Embassy fleurcode” meant each place would have different ones, heh
JUST ten-ish years ago? I though he was much younger when they started to reprogram him …
I suspect he had to reach the age of majority, first.

Link Failure. Try this one.
Oh. Right. So they let him finish school before they started telling him that it’s bad idea to mention name of his parents.
Nope. Next page shows us that she hadn’t even looked at his ‘old’ name. This is just standard protocol.
