Alaric takes a tour

This started from a conversation with Evie that it would be nice for some of the mini-Deryni to visit the UK. Having discovered how much Royal Mail (British postal service, I don't have access to the Queen's couriers!) and the US postal service charge to mail even light stuff across the Atlantic clearly that was impractical even if Evie had been willing to entrust them to me. (Duncan? I haven't seen Duncan, he must have decided to go across to Europe for a while...)

So with no consideration at all for his ducal dignity mini Alaric was photographed, emailed, printed out and laminated. He then accompanied DH and I on our recent holiday. Travelling by train we went up to Edinburgh so that DH could have a go on the newly re-opened borders railway, then down to Cambridge to visit DD1 and finally to London to visit DD2.

As you can see he had a tendency to show his aura and could be a bit of a handful at times. He seemed to think that he was on the sort of jaunt he and Sean Derry might have shared in their younger days although he clearly was somewhat taken aback to discover he was on holiday with a priest, which cramped his style a bit. I definitely caught him muttering once or twice when we went into a church - "I can get all this at home!"

In this picture he is delighted to have found a leather flagon which he recognises as familiar ( in the shop at Edinburgh Castle) and is trying it out for size. Sadly it was empty.

I'll try and post the tale of his adventures with suitable pictures as and when I get the time or the mood takes me.

Thanks again to Evie for loaning his Grace to me, even if he is a shadow of his former self.

Nice to see Flat Alaric has more of a life than I do!   ;D

good to see Flat Alaric out and about.  I tried to find him a portal through my printer but alas the portal must not be working.
May your horses have wings and fly!

Flat Alaric in a flagon - has a nice ring to it!  :)
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

This is a nice laugh.
I saw someone looking at this and I could not remember, so here I am. I am rathering enjoying Flat Alaric shining his aura in a Flagon in Edinburgh. I hope at some point the flagon got filled with the good stuff and Flat Alaric (not bathing in it) could enjoy a sip.  ;)
May your horses have wings and fly!

If anyone else would like to take Flat Alaric, Flat Duncan, or Flat Devlin on adventures, here are links to the set.  I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them, then trimming the excess plastic from the edge (though not too closely unless you use heat lamination, or the laminating plastic might separate from the paper) and using the black part of a binder clip as a stand if you want them to be able to stand up on their own rather than needing a prop.

I find a size Medium works fine.  If you pinch the silver handles together, you can easily remove them from the black clip, though I suggest using them to clamp the stand onto the figures first before removing the handles. Otherwise the clips are a little hard to pry apart to slip the laminated cardstock into, though it's not impossible.
