Default 4.23 night :: It's a Party! :: EVERYBODY (OPEN)

Rothgar wore a white tunic in token mourning for his nephew- the dark tidings of Edric's had waited them in Moonspire. He'd dispatched a rider to Alianor, who remained with her retinue in Moonspire to watch over Lucia and Kalden along with Elinor and Lenore. He sat beside Titus Carolin, along with most of the present Vellfyres and of course Titus' mother who sat at Rothgar's other side and Bryce beyond her. Rothgar hoped the woman would keep her attention on his brother- perhaps she'd even think to take a pass at seducing him.

Titus clapped to summon out another amazing trifle from his confection cook: a spun sugar replica of the Carolin's castle, trimmed in candy of different sorts and set up with gingerbread walls. A river of blueberries flowed past it. Rothgar smiled at it but his attention was quickly diverted by the jangling beginning of another song and the rush of footsteps as younger nobles hurried to abandon their seats and take part in the dancing...

Tyana wore a deep wine colored gown along with a veil weighed down with gold filigree along with her eyes darkened in kohl bringing out the intensity of her blue eyes. Her hair was not as intricately coiffured in a 'Shores' style, but not in the simple braids that she was getting by with after her maid's death. She knew that her own family would wonder if she was turning into a country mouse by the state of her wardrobe, but during this transition she had every intention of starting her own fashion instead of sticking with what she knew.

Even though she had every desire to grump about sitting in some dark, forsaken corner of the feasting hall she knew that it would make certain parties unhappy with her. Suck it up... she said to herself as she smiled which did manage to reach her eyes to ensure that she was being convincing enough. She accepted the hand of the young man that was brave enough to ask her to dance, but she rarely said no to a dance especially when asked.

Jason had only gotten up for a moment once the dancing had begun on account of having to use the privy. He'd told his wife he would return quickly, but on his way back, he was caught by a lord whose name he had trouble remembering, and he felt too ashamed to ask as the man seemed to be operating under the assumption that Jason did know who he was. And the man could talk... and talk... And gods, he was still talking... He looked towards the table, trying to make the appropriate cues that he had to get going, but the lord was quite intent on telling him all about the Spring crop of his lands and about his daughter who apparently was of marriage age now and quite pretty...

Where was wine when he needed it...?

As her latest dance partner escorted her back to her table, she thanked him prettily and would have accepted the next person to ask her to dance when she caught sight of Jason talking to someone else. Did he look pained? She wondered and then attempted to look around knowing he could very well get out of his own awkward social situations. Plus what he did when she did attempt to step in and take care of a concern. Of course, it was entirely different than his current predicament.

However, she sighed softly and rolled her eyes mainly at herself while grabbing a goblet of wine and pasted a smile on her face. "There you are, my prince! I thought I was surely being deserted," she said forlornly for the lord's benefit as she handed Jason a goblet of wine. "Your wine, your highness. My lord, I hope you will allow the Crown Prince to dance with me before all of the lovely ladies and his beautiful wife whisks him away?" She asked as she stuck out her bottom lip and gave puppy dog eyes to the lord intent on talking Jason's ear off to show her some mercy by releasing her dance partner.

Kain watched his cousin squirming under some lord's insistent conversation. A sardonic grin touched Kain's lips and he raised his cup a little to Jason as Tyana interceded, without once stepping foot closer to assist. In fact, Kain's attention was being claimed by a pair of Moonspire lordlings wanting to complain about the yearly hunting rights, however much Kain pointed out that they needed to talk to Bryce or... really, anybody else in the kingdom...

Elinor having remained with her sister, Rhaegar was content to remain mostly with his men and the prince's household for the journey but now there was the various branches of House Carolin to contend with-- a branch which might have a suitable bride for Aden somewhere in its leaves. To that end he had made a point of asking the dowager Lady Carolin for a dance and speaking to her about his own new-made marriage and the arrangement with House Seyfert though he left off any more pointed discussion for a later date, content for the moment in sounding out what her son (really her, of course) might be planning.

That being done, their dance ended amicably enough and he looked around for further occupation...

Titus' concern for her comfort was becoming worse than obsequious. Parissa demurred from yet another insistent filling of her cup when Guillermo Carollin swooped in to ask her if she would grant him a dance. She grasped his hand like a lifeline and fled the high table at once. Her dance with Guillermo ended, and a young man whose face she vaguely recognized asked her for the next dance- quickly becoming one in a stream of people. Finally, her partner was someone she knew: Titus' younger squire, Aegor, who'd fostered in Solarii for a short time. As their dance ended a set, Aegor's friends and a few other wayward former Solarii fosterlings joined them, everybody sneaking flasks and goblets of things stronger than what they were supposed to be drinking.

Carolei's cup remained full as she circulated through the great hall. She smiled and flirted but had not agreed to dance with anyone as yet. Her eyes darted toward Bryce, noting the way Lady Carollin seemed to keep gravitating back toward him... she waited to catch his eye and raised a brow once but didn't push her way closer to him.

Jason stared at the cup for a moment as if the gods themselves had sent it before him, but her words had him standing straighter. His eyes were sharp as he looked at her, but it only lasted a moment, and his eyes at least did convey heartfelt gratitude. "Of course, my lady. My lord, if you would excuse me," he said, nodding his head towards him and then offering his free arm to Tyana.

"If my lady does not mind that I finish this wine first?" he asked once they were out of earshot of the dreadful, dull lord.

His expression darkened as he watched his son fleeing some vassal or another with the Solvitreo girl. Rothgar snapped his fingers for more wine and nodded again at Titus' proud explanation of his upcoming tourney.

His eyes were desperately darting about, and he did catch sight of his nephew squirming in a conversation he clearly didn't want to be in. Well, Jason could choke because at least he wasn't having to pretend to be interested in what Lady Carolin was saying... His gaze caught on his mistress, catching her expression, and he sighed...

"Would you like to dance, my lady?" he asked. If nothing else, maybe the end of a song would allow him to get away from her.

Jacen's smile remained on his lips as he surveyed the room. Clad in black brocade and white velvet, the heir to Mirrormount continued his conversation with his cousin Ysabel and her husband, Elric- son of Nerios. Elric seemed less concerned with Jacen than Lady Carolin's progress with Prince Bryce and Lord Vayth... Titus's ostentatious overtures to the king were of marked less interest. Jacen rose and offered his hand to Ysabel for a dance.

Tyana did not realize that she was holding her breath when Jason was working through his reaction at her interruption. Then there was a bit of regret for stepping in and lastly a bit of relief, but all held in a neutral, playfully smiling mask. If he wished to endure, he could have always brushed her off, but perhaps he thought her excuse might impugn his gallant and chivalrous reputation. One never knew with a Vellfyre.

She gave a disarming and grateful smile towards the garrulous lord as she accepted the prince's free arm. "I do not mind at all and let me know if you need something a little stronger, my prince," she murmured for his ears only as the veil hid her lips from others reading them.

Jason lifted the cup to his lips, but before he drank, he said, "They'll be saying you're my mistress." He kept a look that would have told anybody watching that their conversation was a light one. "If that is not what they're already saying... Consider you've recently be so suddenly bold. What has caused this, I wonder."

Carolei waited until the next dance was finished and Bryce and Lady Carolin finally stepped apart before she wended her way closer in the crowd. Still, she didn't outright approach and chose to wait by engaging the heir of... something or other... in a light conversation about tourneys and favors, and the possibility of one of the raucous youths in Princess Parissa's party falling over his own feet on the next dance.

She looked around for Amina or Zoe but didn't see them. Instead, Vespera was giggling at a young lord's jest and some of the others were already dancing again... so she took another drink and somebody whispered that nothing was going to be all that much fun til Lady Carolin retired... or they escaped her.

Parissa rolled her eyes and took Aegor's arm and told him they should dance again. He agreed, though it was a slow dance and they kept their heads together as they spoke. He'd actually gotten a letter from her recalcitrant brother at the Magisterium, and was wondering what Alodie might be up to.

Amina did not yet see Pari. Or Kain. Though she did find her attention captured by a young Moonspire lord, around her age, a little older, she guessed. He loved hawking, and she jabbered on a bit with him about it, not noticing the stuttering of the lad every time she smiled, or the blush on his cheeks when she complimented him and laughed. And when he asked her for a dance, she couldn't say no. It was just a dance...and he was kind. What was the harm in it?

He was going to commit regicide or fratricide... or whatever -cide was appropriate for the moment... The dance ended and he bowed to his partner, complimenting her on her grace... And then he turned to ask the nearest woman for the next dance. He let out a breath of relief at having gotten away for the moment... and he threw another look towards Carolei which was both playful and exasperated... Which was nothing like the look he wore when he looked over at his nephew's wife.

Briefly he glanced over to where Jason stood, noting the prince seemed to be paying attention to Lady Tyana, but there were signs... Standing slightly more rigid, eyes darting in her direction a couple of times... Bryce smirked and continued to dance.

She let two more songs go by before she let herself be caught at the edge of the crowd when the dancing ended, coincidentally not all that far from where Bryce's set finished. This time she stepped toward him with a cup of spiced wine in hand and a raised brow. "Pardon me, your highness, I was wondering if you might have a moment to speak with me regarding arrangements for the hunt...?"

Bryce bowed once again to his new partner and then turned his head as Carolei approached, his face retaining the passivity that one would expect of a skilled diplomat. But when she posed her question, there was a slight softening to his eyes and twitch at the corner of his lips. "A moment? I think so, my lady?" He took a few steps to quit the dancing floor and crossed his arms, eyes going elsewhere for only a moment before focusing back on her. "How might I help you?"

Amina was occupied with some blundering idiot so he took the opportunity to look around the room and frowned when he failed to find his wife. Gods, it was going to be inconvenient if he had to put her on a leash...

His fingers drummed on his wine cup, the amusement vanishing from his expression.

She answered his smile with one of her own. Her eyes lit with amusement again. "Well, I admit to some curiosity over how it feels to be the stag when you're so accustomed to being the hunter... but there's also a matter of your shoulder with so much dancing. Are you over-taxing yourself, prince of harts?"

"That... is an interesting analogy..." he said, rolling his eyes a little, his smile growing. "It was an acceptable risk," he added in a much lower voice. "But... I'm at least pleased you seemed to find it quite amusing. Thank you for that."

"Oh, you are quite welcome, Prince Bryce," she replied in an imitation of Lady Carollin's rolling westron accent. "I'm entirely happy to find amusement anywhere in this place. I had not anticipated just how... dedicated they were to hunting in Westridge."

He eyed her a moment, his smile waning a little in the mummery of horror... And he pretended that his eye was twitching. "If you are desiring amusement, I can help you in that regard... You need not resort to observing hunts."

"You can, your highness?" Carolei's eyes widened at that news, and she feigned surprise. "But you are so occupied with superior ladies that I couldn't ask it of you." She shook her head and put her hand on his arm. "No, that would be quite shrewish and selfish of me to demand your attention."

The music ended, and she curtsied to him, giving him a brilliant smile. "Thank you for the dance, my lord." He stuttered, blushed, and asked her for a kiss. "Ah, my lord, it pains me to say that I am spoken for. But you are a lovely dancer. I pray you show the next lady you dance with the same care and attention you've shown me." Amina curtsied, again, and plucked a cup of wine from the hands of the nearest servant, heading toward the nearest terrace. She needed air.

Jacen left Ysabel with some goggling knight and moved through the crowd, momentarily distracted by a peal of laughter from the group of younger lordlings and nobles when he bumped a young woman with dark hair and full lips... He stopped short and bowed his head in apology to Amina. He searched his memory for her name but all he vaguely knew was 'Tyana's cousin.' He smiled. "Pardon my clumsiness, Lady... are you well? Thy wine's not spilled?"

Salindra came into the room, a bit delayed because she was training a new maid, along with trying to decide which dress and jewelry would be the best for fully presenting herself to the court. It was now known that she was the king's mistress, and it was interesting...the new notice she was gaining because of this. The king did say she needed to be seen...but there was a fine line that she was aware of. Always that fine line.

She decided on a dress of dark, almost midnight blue, to contrast the best with her hair, as well as a pair of pearl drop earrings and a pearl necklace. With this ordeal thankfully over, she made her way to the hall, where she acknowledged those who spoke to her. She ended up next to a vassal, who ended up speaking of boring things such as land, and money, and taxes...gods. She always ended up, at gatherings, next to the boring men.

She looked up at her offender and recognized him as a Mondragon, but little more. "No, no my lord...you've managed quite a feat. You have bumped into me and not a drop of wine was spilled. Can you often claim that you have such luck?" Amina smiled up at him.
