Staying in the room with Leven, Edward, and Emmett the four discuss what they can do going forward to stop this, and Edward shows support to William, Leven is like Edward reluctant to resist something that William wants to do, and Emmett as well agrees and unable to find support in stopping William from those three she goes to her room where she hopes to find Jasper and gain his assistance. After the argument of the Shadow Council Jasper went back to his room with Alice where he begin throwing things around the room which obviously brought about the attention of his fiance Alice Lovie. When Jasper told Alice about what was happening she immediately knew that she was partly to blame for this as she had told him during the trip back that he was as great as William Lovie, and that anything he had done would pale in comparison to what he would eventually be remembered for. Realizing this she immediately left the room with Jasper - who was shocked that Alice had just up and left - and went upstairs to William's room where she walked in on William and Bella in the middle of having sex. Seeing this was the first of what would become a growing problem for Alice as she begin to accept some simple truths in her life that she had never allowed herself to accept before. When Bella had removed herself from William and they were properly clothed she sat down on the edge of the bed and apologized to William for telling him what she had, and she begged him not to go through with the Dragon plan. Bella stood beside him, but she to wanted to know why William would be so absolutely reckless. Bella went through the lists of things that gave them an advantage in any upcoming conflict, and by this point Alice was tearing up but still attempting to help Bella by also saying all the positives of a future conflict with the Empire. William explained to the two of them that the situation was hopeless in the long run unless they did something drastic and he could only think of doing this. He had taken out cities, and annexed half of western Westros but he still was nothing more then a peanut in comparison to the power of the larger Empires in Europe. The three of them argued back and forth for some time and finally Ashley would appear at the door and she had a bad dream, and wanted them to get her a drink. Bella would leave to help Ashley with that, and when she did William reached for Alice and pulled her into a hug and whispered to her the words that force her to take his side of the coming debate. With the words said by William there was a sense of understanding between the siblings and she would help him to convince Bella of the reasoning's behind the decision, and despite wanting to believe that her husband could succeed where it seemed no one could Bella was not willing to accept his death and refused to agree but would support him. Bella would return carrying a sleeping Ashley of whom they laid in their bed, and then went out to the balcony. The three of them would talk, and this time Alice now supported him, and after basically being double teamed for many minutes William went inside to check on Ashley and Bella and Alice spoke, and Bella wondered what he could have said to her to make her agree to this. Alice refused to tell the truth, and instead simply made excuses for William and Bella left frustrated. Alice is at the top of the Sky Tower as William leaves the city and giving her a kiss on the forehead they part and Alice watches as William flies into the mountains and horrified that he may die but she is unable to truly break down as she has to host the Targaryans and she does this giving Deneyres Targaryan a tour of the city of Lucerne and she gets along well with Deneyres.
