My largest Night Circus-inspired project so far: I wrote a letter to Friedrick Thiessen, clock maker for the circus and founder of the rêveurs, from my great-great aunt Elise McBride. Elise McBride was fictionally born in 1881 in Forrestville, California and was able to visit the circus three times when it came to San Francisco. Elise's letter relates the tales of her three circus visits to Herr Thiessen. The experiences I wrote for her are based on experiences from my own childhood. When the letter was finished I hand wrote it in cursive and decorated an envelope for it.
Pictures of the letter below the cut.
The text of the letter is posted to AO3.
