Brisha: WAIT WAIT WAIT. We don’t even get our own days?
Raul: Why not?
Me: You’re not interesting enough.
Brisha: EXCUSE YOU.
Raul: Maybe BRISHA isn’t interesting….
Me: Oh gods…
Brisha: I – what?! I am SO interesting!
Raul: Not interesting enough to generate a good comeback.
Me: I AM STARTING THE INTERVIEW YOU GUYS THE MIC IS ON NOW!!!
Did you two ever get along?
Raul: Define “get along”.
Brisha: We get along fine, but just because we are twins doesn’t mean we have many common interests..
Raul: Our bond was mostly forged on the basis that we are both the youngest in the family, and the most attention we were ever going to receive was from each other, and we recognized that.
What was it like growing up the youngest children?
Brisha: Being young and acknowledged as illegitimate is no fun…
Raul: As if it made a difference to you. You’re a woman. All you had to do was embroider. I am a man and I was consistently held back from competing with my elder brothers…
Brisha: At least father knew I existed.
Raul: only because you annoyed him so constantly that he could never forget you…
Me: MOVING ON-
Both of you, who did you get along with most in the family?
Brisha: Each other.
Raul: Yes. Sadly. Each other.
Brisha: Pharun is hardly ever around. And too ridiculous.
Raul: Shrukian is too full of himself. And Olympia is as engaging as an old history book.
Brisha: *adding* In a language you’ve never studied.
Raul: Or barely studied but are too lazy to understand.
Brisha, what do you think about Olympia?
Brisha: I think she is a trollop with no special talents. She wanders around the castle all day and just waits on her next opportunity to bang Shrukian. And if she isn’t in his bed then she’s torturing servants, and there’s only so much screaming one can take in the room next to yours.
Raul, do you have any regrets?
Raul: My regret is that I have a twin.
Brisha: D:< !!!
Raul: More seriously, one of my greatest regrets is allowing myself to be consumed by a foolish pursuit that ultimately served to only get me killed.
Raul, what was it like leaving your family behind?
Raul: Fairly liberating. I did not have a great attachment to any of them, and I didn’t care if or whether I saw any of them again.
