After erasing all traces of the dead bastard who didn't love you, you should: 1. Live with your sister for half a year. 2. After said half-year, take a job monitoring a french girl from a family with deep secrets. 3. Go to a few balls and make friends. 4. Go on a lot of journeys. 5. Someone must go missing. 6. Throw in a detective who doesn't go by his real name. 7. There must be a quest to discover a criminal. 8. Insert surprise twist. 9. Fall in love. 10. Marry someone who actually loves you (this step is optional). This formula has been tried and proven successful. If you don't believe it, ask Regina Laurence.
