Writing Prompt! Write what is inside of the bank vault left behind by Janelle's parents! She's going to open it soon and needs to know what is inside! Write what you think is inside and the winner gets fabulous prizes! Or winners, there might be some really great ideas.

Within the Dawson Vault was, of course, a great deal of money. It would seem that her parents had indeed left her everything in the case of their death or disappearance, and that certainly included what remained of their mundane wealth. The true value, however, lay with certain items contained therein.

The first, an artifact of her father's work, a wand attuned specifically to the manipulation of leyline energies, pulling threads of magic to wind around it like an arcane spool, threads that could then be put to use in nearly any way one might imagine.

Second was an amulet that had been enchanted by her mother, one intended to defend against volatile magical power. In the spirit of her mother's way of thinking, however, the enchantment would not strive to directly resist a surge of such energy, but rather divert it to flow around the user like a smoothly angular stone in a raging river.

Third -- and perhaps most intriguing -- was a notebook. The bulk of the Dawsons' revolutionary research on Leyline manipulation was, of course, not entrusted to such an obvious hiding place. But this notebook, full of the script penned both by her mother -and- father, held the hints that might lead a worthy reader to the rest.

Having lived modest lifestyles, a decent amount of money was saved for the future, for a time that never came for the Dawsons. The gold itself was enough to buy a decent apartment in a nicer district, but not untold amounts of gold as being an Archmage couple didn't always equate to higher pay.

The vault room contained spell reagents that had been left in the timeless environment, saved for future use as neither had really had the chance to clean the vault before disappearing. Some of the reagents were quite rare and were for more difficult spells.

While there were magical oddities, the more precious items in the vault weren't the magical items, but the more memory related items. A locket that contained a youthful tiny painting of the couple, inscribed with love from the father towards the mother, the chain broken, thus stored in the vault until one of them had the time to fix it. A golden pocketwatch, needing to be rewound, left in it's case, a celebration of their time together. And three family pictures painted, one of the couple while expecting, one of the couple holding the newborn Janelle, and another with just baby Janelle laying flat on her tummy, grinning wildly.
