Alastair's 46th Birthday Card Drive

Alastair's 46th Birthday Card Drive

After over seven months in the hospital and many more spent in anguish, King Alastair IV is in desperate need of joy in his life. He has been battling the physical and mental illnesses caused by crippling alcoholism, including cirrhosis and depression, as well as the deleterious aftereffects of the sepsis that almost took his life.

The healing process is proving to be slow and difficult; he often gets frustrated by his weakened state and upset by the strain his illness has put on his family. He is extremely remorseful and filled with self-loathing, especially when he is idle, which is often. Due to his frailty, he is not able to walk long or for great distances, and he requires the assistance of a walker and other nurses. Reduced motor functioning has a role in his difficulty, too, as he suffers from extensive brain damage. Something that especially upsets him about this is the hard time he has with producing language. He has problems finding the right words to express himself and has slurred speech.

His family and caretakers are patient with him and eager to do everything they can to help him heal and improve his quality of life. They all love him dearly and only want what is best for him, which includes an extensive support system.

Alastair's family seek to bring him happiness and remind him that he is loved. With his birthday approaching on 12 March, they have decided to reach out to friends and fellow heads of state to give him the special day he deserves.

Important Notes:
  • This thread is NOT an RP. You will not be interacting with Alastair directly here; rather, you are writing him a birthday card.
  • The birthday messages will be written ICly as your nations leader(s). If your leader is illiterate, it can be assumed they have a transcriber. Something along similar lines can be assumed for a character who does not canonically speak English.
  • Please do NOT have your character bring up alcohol, or insult Wilhelm. Or anyone. Remember, this is to cheer Allie up!
  • Remember that this is just for fun--don't feel like you are obligated/required to do it.
  • I hope to compile a dispatch with all of the birthday cards; you can choose to opt in or not.
  • I should have made this, like, at least a week ago, but I didn't because I have Olympic-level skills of procrastination.
  • Alastair's birthday is March 12. I will close it before then, roughly on March 12 in WF (New Zealand) time.
  • Please write at least three to four sentences in your message!

Message: Hey man, from what I've heard you've been in a fucked up state for quite the while now, and from addict to addict, I hope you can recover from this. Sure, it may seem hopeless now (which, to be perfectly fair, it's kinda justifiable), but it will get better, trust me. It will take a while, sure, and you might not be able to rule anymore, but it will be worth it in the end. Trust me.

Card Picture:

Message: My brother Paris attended the Halloween Shindig hosted in your country, and though I do not personally know you, hearing of your current condition has moved me to write. Addiction is a powerful disease that tests one's heart, body and soul in overcoming it, and there's no shame in it. Weakness is something that everyone has, and it takes incredible courage to come to terms with it and admit that you need help. You have your family and your country behind you, and I'm not sure how you're going to feel about some random prince on the other side of the world saying he's proud of you, but I am. You'll get through this, Your Highness. I promise the light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train. Oh, and if you're ever here on a state visit at the right time the Aurinel Royal Opera Company does an excellent Hamlet.

Message: Hello Alaistar.
I write you from far into the future, I know that sounds wild. But I'll save you the explanation, just take my word for it. I decided to contact you at this time because, well, I was bored and nostalgic. So why not. How much worse can I---Never mind. Looking at historical records, you're not doing very well at this time. I can't speak of your fate, I'm sorry. But do not give up hope. Though each step forward may seem pitiful they are indeed steps.
Anyway, happy birthday.
Oh, and that card picture. I took it myself, here, on Earth. I must recommend to you Nature as a healing power.

Message: I attended the Halloween Shindig in your country. I don't know if you remember me, but I held your hand to comfort you in the hospital. When you recover—and I have no doubt you will—we should visit each other. Maybe see a performance of Hamlet. Or we could just compare our experiences as leaders of small island nations. Well, I really liked writing this birthday card. I hope you realize that you are loved by friends and family. Happy birthday!

Message: Good day, Your Highness, and a happy 46th to you! I'm afraid we haven't had the pleasure of meeting and as I understand you are having some difficult time right now with your health. All I can do is offer my sincere condolences on that and hope as this near year of your life comes upon you, things will turn around for you. Should you find the strength, maybe you'll find yourself all the way to our little chain of islands at some time but of course, I am certain many who are writing you messages of good tidings are also encouraging you to come visit them so I certainly can understand if you never come down to our parts. Just as we get to celebrate our own, My dear younger sister and I always want to wish those of us who have difficult jobs to do, the happiest day when we celebrate another year of your being present. Many more a Happy Birthday to you, Your Highness.
