The Army Moves South to Restore Order
27-Jun 00:01 – Sunday
With the news that the Martian’s are dead, the army moves south to restore order, even as Queen Victoria acts to seize and protect all Martian artifacts by establishing #RotchWood to take ownership of all property previously belonging to the Martians.
Once again, Toni has little time to speculate on much except saving lives. However, her diary references her growing understanding of the politics of the time.

Interestingly, although the United Kingdoms Public Records Act 1958 stated that generally public records will become available for public inspection after 50 years, the fact that all properties belonging to the Martians were to be held in the Queen’s name by @EarlRotchWood remained a secret until last year.
