    Forbidden Love Family Game: France, 1788

    *Note: This is purely for fun, and isn't meant to be 100% historically accurate. Try to come up with names that fit the time and place, as well as any other specific parameters. Feel free to add descriptions. Have funl!*

    The year is 1788, and you are the twenty-year-old daughter of a French nobleman, living in Paris on the eve of revolution. Tension is in the air, and as nobility, you feel the hostility of the unhappy peasants everywhere you go - but unlike your father, you sympathize with those of lower class. One day, you and your maid set off to the upscale tailor's down the street from your estate to get a new dress hemmed. As luck would have it, you are knocked down just outside the shop by an apologetic - and handsome - young man dressed poorly but looking as though he is on a mission. When he sees that you are upper class, however, he scowls and before you know it, the two of you are debating politics right there in the street, however unladylike it may seem.
    It turns out that the young man is a peasant farmer-turned-scholar who has been swept up in the wave of new ideas and is becoming active in the rebellion against the French nobility. However, as you share your insights, you two realize that your beliefs are the same, and you finally go into the tailor's shop with your head whirling and his name on your tongue. His name is _________.
    You and _________ continue to run into each other in the months that follow, and you develop feelings for each other as your country moves toward revolution. Though you know the scandal it will cause, you and your loving peasant boy decide to elope in the spring of 1789, just as the Estates General meets in Versailles and the French Revolution officially begins. Your wedding is secret but special...you are married in___________.
    When your noble parents find out, they are horrified and threaten to disown you. You move to a little cottage with your husband with the money you got from selling some of your fancy clothes and things. The cottage looks like_______________.
    Several months later, you find out that you are expecting a child. In March of 1790, you give birth to a healthy baby boy, and want his name to start with a J to honor your father and hopefully mend the family rift. Your son's name is ________.
    While your husband finds work in a revolutionary print shop, you learn how to be a tough, thrify peasant. It isn't easy, especially when you become pregnant again. This time, it's a girl, born in August 1791, and you want to name her something fancy-sounding, because even though you love your husband and embrace your new life, you still miss your old life a bit. Her name is _______.
    In 1793, not only is it unsafe for you (as a former noble) to live in Paris, you are also expecting again. You move to the French town of _________ and give your second daughter, born in October 1793, the name of the town. Her full name is ________.
    By 1795, France is in the middle of war, your son is 5, and your daughters are 3 1/2 and 1. That's when you discover that you're expecting twins. They're born a month prematurely, in July 1795, but both little boys survive. You pick strong-sounding names for them. Your newest sons are named ______ and _____.
    Through the Reign of Terror, through the establishing of the Republic, through guillotenes and Napoleon, your little family grows up. Your husband becomes a heroic figure in your town for his part in the revolution. It's 1799, and the two of you have been married for ten years. Your oldest son is 9, your daughters 7 1/2 and 5, and the twins 3 1/2. As the Revolution comes to a close, you find that you're going to have another baby. Your last daughter is born on December 24, 1799, the same day that Napoleon officially becomes leader of France. Her name reflects happiness, victory, or peace. It is _______.
    You and your husband go on to live a happy life with your six children. Though the class barrier that stood between you initially seemed impossible to cross, you proved that forbidden love doesn't always have a tragic end.

However, as you share your insights, you two realize that your beliefs are the same, and you finally go into the tailor's shop with your head whirling and his name on your tongue. His name is Thomas.

    You and Tom continue to run into each other in the months that follow, and you develop feelings for each other as your country moves toward revolution.

    Several months later, you find out that you are expecting a child. In March of 1790, you give birth to a healthy baby boy, and want his name to start with a J to honor your father and hopefully mend the family rift. Your son's name is Jeremie Armand.

    While your husband finds work in a revolutionary print shop, you learn how to be a tough, thrify peasant. It isn't easy, especially when you become pregnant again. This time, it's a girl, born in August 1791, and you want to name her something fancy-sounding, because even though you love your husband and embrace your new life, you still miss your old life a bit. Her name is Aveline-Laure Berenice.

    In 1793, not only is it unsafe for you (as a former noble) to live in Paris, you are also expecting again. You move to the French town of Saint Denis and give your second daughter, born in October 1793, the name of the town. Her full name is Dlice Mare.

    By 1795, France is in the middle of war, your son is 5, and your daughters are 3 1/2 and 1. That's when you discover that you're expecting twins. They're born a month prematurely, in July 1795, but both little boys survive. You pick strong-sounding names for them. Your newest sons are named Louis Blaise and Oliver Remi.

Your last daughter is born on December 24, 1799, the same day that Napoleon officially becomes leader of France. Her name reflects happiness, victory, or peace. It is Victoria Marie.

    You and your husband go on to live a happy life with your six children. Though the class barrier that stood between you initially seemed impossible to cross, you proved that forbidden love doesn't always have a tragic end.
