Okay, so here is a letter I randomly came up with one day. I have been pondering on the possibility of using it as a query, but as a decent intro the story I think it serves fairly well. Let me know what you think, and I will see you around!
To Whom it May Concern,
As several accounts of my actions have appeared in your journals, I have taken it upon myself to publish a personal account of the events you have endeavored to describe. You will find enclosed the true story of my actions and decisions regarding the attempt on the life of Lord Pevensley, as well as my efforts on the behalf of the Everston Academy of Ethereal Sciences. Also included are some small accounts of other cases which influenced my discovery of the perpetrators of these crimes, as well as the recorded actions of several of my friends and associates.
You will note that my account differs from several popular versions in many respects. For example, I am not, as some have alleged, a werewolf, vampire, gear driven automaton or other type of Changeling or Distillation powered creation. I am an investigator, a detective in the service of the truth, and I would thank your journal and any other publications to refer to me as such.
Furthermore I feel compelled to demand a retraction of the accusations leveled against me by your editorial board. While I am sure that many might find my actions and methods unreasonable or objectionable, I have not been, as some have said, in the service of some dark conspiracy or abhorrent scheme. I certainly have not masterminded these crimes for my own benefit, and I find myself offended that you have defamed my character to such an extent. What work I have done, I have done for the good of my patrons and clients, if not for the safety and security of my friends and family. Any implication otherwise is entirely inappropriate—and lest you believe yourself to be proof against my retaliation, let me remind you that if I was able to catch these schemers and criminals in their lies, I will hardly struggle to catch you in yours.
I trust that you will publish this account in the spirit of objectivity and fairness, without alteration or summary, and that you will retract the falsehoods previously mentioned. May we both be engaged satisfactorily in the discovery of the truth, or may we face the eternal consequences for turning away from such a mystery.
