Harley at seventeen had been an oddball in her family. She dyed her hair blonde; when she could get away with it she wouldn’t eat kosher. She didn’t do a lot of things that her parents constantly told her a good Jewish girl her age should. She also thought listening to her German grandparents go on and on and on and on and on and on and on was so very depressing. And not worth her time.

Though Chanukah wasn’t the gift giving holiday that Christmas was she still had high expectations. (Harley had also decided she liked Christmas better. Brighter, cheerier, more colors and they decorated trees!) Those expectations were trashed though when she opened what was obviously going to be the first of eight pointless and miserable gifts.

She grimaced and held the book at arm’s length like she didn’t quite understand how it had even gotten in the package in the first place. “A Holocaust book, Mame?” she asked, looking up at her mother who was smiling in that way she had.

“It’s a part of your past, you know. Read it, it won’t be as bad as you think.”

“Do I have to?” Harley whined.

“Yes, damnit!” her Father’s voice called out from the kitchen.

“Awwwwww,” this was going to suck so hard.

I LOVE it!

Why do I have a feeling that the parts on Joseph Mengele spurred her on her career path?

Glad you like it. :D

Coming to terms with parts of her heritage was really part of it. Like the way she speaks, when she's trying to be normal and tries to fit in, she loses the accent, suggesting she covers it up.

When she's just being herself she has the full accent on and even dips into Yiddish on occasion. =^___^=

It's fun to play with and it makes me do my research.

Dear Mun,

I've noticed that you have not updated your journal clownluvin (i.e., responded to one of the TM topics) for the past four topics. NOTE: Roleplay does not count as updating your journal, per the rules of the Theatrical Muse community.

If you have responded to one of the last four TM topics and I missed your post, please forward the link to me. If you have not responded to a challenge, but would still like to continue participating in TM, please do the following:

1. REPLY TO THIS NOTE

2. RESPOND TO ONE OF THE MOST RECENT 4 TOPICS (#266,267,268,269) BY NO LATER THAN 12th February 2009.

3. FORWARD THE LINK OF YOUR POST TO ME.

Otherwise I will remove your muse from the TM community.

If you are having trouble meeting this commitment, but you still do want to remain in the TM community, please let me know and I will see what I can do. Real life always takes precedence over fannish activities. We just need to know that you are still interesting in remaining a member of the TM community, and get some idea of when you may be able to participate again. If you do need a hiatus, please let me know when you think that you will be able to participate again. We can put your muse on hiatus for that time period. If another member requests the character during that time period, we will email you to see if you still wish to participate in TM. At the end of the indicated hiatus period, we will also email you to see if you wish to participate in the TM community. At that time, if you do not respond and/or update your journal, we will remove your muse from the community.

You can find a list of the most recent challenges here:
