I confess that yes, I am a very picky and vain man, who enjoys surrounding himself with only the finest. However…
"Love" is different from collecting objects or artifacts for decorating my airship, or styling myself and my wardrobe to best represent my high social ranking.
Yes, I would still love her. I will always love her. But I love Bellecoso for her, all of her, not just her physical appearance. Because I love her, she will always be attractive and beautiful to me, regardless of how she looks. Do you understand?
Bellecoso is not a trophy, nor an expensive painting or vase, so kindly refrain from speaking of her as if she is.
332. And just to clarify, I am not old.

Hamlet, of course. Macbeth. Othello, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream —
Ah… y-yes, those. Those will do.
Oh!~ A Midsummer Knight’s Dream would be quite the fun one~
You are … actually … interested in this sort of thing?
Elven folk /can/ be turned into vampires, sir. We have no immunity over the vampirism virus if their blood mixes with our own. Just saying.
… Fine, fine. Then, to be technical, yes, I suppose Zhivago and I could be related somewhere in our bloodlines, if he was an elven who was turned into a vampire.
Although I sincerely doubt this is the case either way, as the probability of us sharing common ancestors is exceedingly low, all things considering.
Is that better?
I didn’t mean to offend, sir…

You must have a deathwish.
I’ll respond to all three messages as one.
