That was when Violet awoke from her delirium caused by the rapid healing of her bullet wound, too see all the beautiful women around the bar, the dwarves and their precious blood, and the police, stunned by these revelations.

It had been a dream.

But the Monsieur was not.

"It IS all about belief," she said. Glancing quickly at Magdalena and remembering all her lessons about the power of dreaming, and how answers can come in the most seemingly ridiculous moments.

She stood up and she was strong. The only evidence of her bullet wound the jagged hole in her red dress, and the dark stain down her front.

She stepped towards The Monsieur.

"Belief," she said. "You had us believe that you had power over us. But you do not."

"Out of the way, girl!" The Amazon captain growled.

"He is nothing to be afraid of," Violet simply said, and with that, she embraced him as his teeth bit into her neck.

Sorry folks, I couldn't just let it all mean nothing. So I remembered something someone said about them waking up from a dream... well maybe not the whole story, but that one little pie bit.

Besides, Swotsy's in her mid twenties. All she'd get would be some crows feet, no?

And I thought you were going for Acorn Antiques Scarlet?! A good twist Rowena (anyone else feel like we are careering downhill in the dark like an out of control bobsleigh?!)

Erm... Mrs Overall? Goodness me... but I love Julie Walters.
I wanted them to find out that they were beautiful anyway, without the killing and lotions and potions and it was about self-belief in the end.

I'm with you there Scarlet ... I'm hoping there will be a new dawn for them where women aren't slaves to Creme de Nain (aka PantyPeptides, Boswelox etc etc ...) There's time yet (flexes fingers) ...
