The Capiverro Wedding

Post by Gorth »

The following is posted upon Shadgard's Town Board.
OYEZ OYEZ! In the absence of a Crier to go about town calling out the announcement, let this be taken as Official Notice of the impending Nuptials of EIRLYS, spinster of Mistral Lake, and CAIUS, Bachelor of Shadgard, to take place upon the SECOND DAY OF MARCUM upon the setting of the sun. All are welcome and invited to attend the ceremony, and the subsequent festivities marking this Joyous Occasion. The Wedding Party and all those desirous of attending are to gather at the Gatehouse in Shadgard at the SIXTH BELL in the evening, from there to set forth for the ceremony. Afterwards, a Torchlit Procession will escort the newly wedded couple back to Shadgard with bells and music, whereupon General Rejoicing, accompanied by food, drink, music and dancing, will take place at the town's Party Pavilion for as long as spirit, energy and comestibles hold out.

If logs are taken, which is up in the air, I'll have them posted here. I'm of the opinion that we do not have nearly enough topics like this, where we talk about ongoing player plots. Then again, we don't have a lot of public player plots that go on. SO hey.

Bump. Come by, today, guys! I know it's just another big gathering with food and drinks and maybe dancing in the game, but it should be neat! And hey. I have it on good authority that the bride has a very nice dress that cost a lot of money. It would be a shame if it went to waste.

And no, I haven't seen it.

Re: The Capiverro Wedding: Ceremony Log

Post by Gorth »

It's rough. But it's what I managed.
[Mountainside Path, Overlook] (OutFrMtRkDt) Late Afternoon, Warm, Clear, Calm
A stunning view of the wooded hills and valleys below can be seen from this rocky overlook jutting out from the mountainside. A small fishing village can just be glimpsed at the edge of a lake, and further northwest a wide river snakes westward across the rolling woodland to emerge into the open grassy prairie. No doubt many a painter would find this a worthy spot to set up easel and canvas in an attempt to capture the idyllic landscape, hoping to produce an artful facsimile capable of similarly stirring the soul. Perhaps diminishing nature's splendor somewhat are a series of weathered stone #benches near the edge of the overhang, suggesting the area was once a popular place for visitors to stop and enjoy the view.
The area is mostly quiet.
You also notice a square fir table with some stuff on it and a leather traveling backpack (open).
Also here: Alia (moderately-armored), ?Sarah? (disguised), Fiery-Scarlet (lightly-armored, smells of pine), Harvest-Gold, Wisteria-Purple, Arna (Purple), Leiana, Seren, Harrow (sitting on a weathered stone bench), Eirlys, and ?Pigeon? (disguised).
Obvious paths: southeast.
You see a very short slim strawberry-blond-haired youthful woman with fair skin and blue-green eyes, whom you know as Eirlys.
She is about five feet tall and appears to be youthful. She has hip-length tousled strawberry blond hair and bright blue-green eyes. Her skin is fair and build is slim.
No obvious wounds or maladies.
She has the following visible skin markings:
left hand: an adorable baby drakolin tattoo
She is wearing a sheer-rimeveil ivory veil with a seashell headband, a gold locket inset with an exquisite fire opal (closed), a seaglass-blue leather baldric, an ivory and pale gold rimeveil gown embroidered with waves, a gold ring, a braided leather anklet adorned with multicolored pearls, and some azure velvet slippers decorated with snow-white satin bows.
You see a tall solid jet-black-haired youthful man with tan skin and blue-gray eyes (yourself!).
He is about six feet tall and appears to be youthful. He has jaw-length wavy jet-black hair and intense blue-gray eyes. His skin is tan and build is solid.
No obvious wounds or maladies.
He is wearing a tight-fitted pale-gold rimeveil vest worn over a fitted ivory rimeveil shirt with obsidian buttons, a polished holly-bead bracelet, some obsidian rimeveil trousers bound by a leather belt (with a burgundy cedar scabbard and a thick navy-blue leather back-pouch (open) attached), and a pair of polished jet-black leather shoes.
You take a closer look at Eirlys's ivory and pale gold rimeveil gown embroidered with waves ...
Several layers of finely woven ivory rimeveil have been artistically draped to create the poofed ankle-length bell skirt of the gown, designed to flow with the wearers movements. Slender silk ribbons of aquamarine and sea-blue have been fastened at the shoulder, the sleeves coming to a stop just above the elbow with a laced trim. A slightly shorter sheer-rimeveil overdress of pale-gold has been embroidered with a muted wave pattern fits close to the bodice and fastens beneath the wearers breast with small polished scallop shells, its open-fronted skirt draping back in soft curves to emphasize the clean folds of the main gown.
You take a closer look at Eirlys's sheer-rimeveil ivory veil with a seashell headband ...
Several seashells have been polished and attached to a thick pale-gold leather headband. Sheer-rimeveil edged in lace flows from the back of the band, stopping at the hips.

::EMOTE:: Leiana rolls her eyes good-naturedly at ?Pigeon?.
Eirlys appears to be trying not to grin.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys goes silent, though it's clear by the twitch of her lips that she's trying not to laugh.
::EMOTE:: ?Sarah? brings a hand to her mouth. She remains blessedly quiet.
::EMOTE:: ?Pigeon? spreads her arms wide and raises her voice commandingly.
::SAY:: ?Pigeon? says, "The world is large and life is uncertain at the best of times, seldom more so than in these shattered Lost Lands. Humans need one another. And when two come together, finding solace and strength in one another. that is an occasion for celebration and joy."
::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold nods solemnly.
Wisteria-Purple adopts an agreeable expression.
::EMOTE:: Arna (Purple) smiles softly.
?Pigeon? gazes up at the sky.
::EMOTE:: ?Sarah? nods as well, instantly sobering up.
You gaze up at the sky ...
Yep, it's still blue.
Eirlys gazes up at the sky.
::SAY:: ?Pigeon? says, "We are here, beneath this sky and at this hour balanced between the light and the darkness, to witness and solemnize the contract of marriage undertaken by this man and this woman."
::EMOTE:: ?Pigeon? indicates Eirlys and Caius in turn, inclining her head to each with a smile.
::SAY:: ?Pigeon? says, "Beneath this sky and at this hour, I call to those Immortals most near to the hearts of this couple that they might look kindly upon them, and grant them their favour."
::EMOTE:: Alia turns her full attention to the ceremony, what was a quieter, thoughtful kind of expression shifting to something of soft joy as she watches, nodding occasionally to ?Pigeon?'s words.
::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold looks upon the couple with a gentle joy, beaming at them both, and the sky above and earth below.
::EMOTE:: ?Pigeon? lifts the clay bowl of rainwater, swirling it so that the salt and water combine, then raises it to her heart level.
::SAY:: Eirlys quietly mutters, "I hope I ain't gotta drink that."
::EMOTE:: Eirlys immediately quiets.
::EMOTE:: Seren elbows Eirlys.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys resumes quiet Eirlys pose, lips twitching as if she's ready to laugh or grin.
Wisteria-Purple appears to be trying not to grin.
::SAY:: ?Pigeon? says, "Nereia, Lady of the endless ocean, though we are far from your tides, yet all waters in the end travel to the sea. By the favour of your sister, let her sweet water carry this invocation to you. On the wings of your far-ranging seabirds, let the prayers of this woman, Eirlys, who honours you, and those of this man, her chosen husband, reach your ears so that, in your kindness, you might bless their union."
?Sarah? smiles quietly to herself.
::EMOTE:: Fiery-Scarlet manages not to snicker out loud, his lips twitching slightly as he channels that energy into a squeeze of Wisteria-Purple's hand instead.
::EMOTE:: ?Pigeon? returns the bowl to the altar with a small bow, and a smile for Eirlys.
?Pigeon? removes a tall wax candle from on a square fir table.

::EMOTE:: After arranging the lit candles in a triangle about the altar, ?Pigeon? resumes speaking.
::SAY:: ?Pigeon? says, "All of life emerges from darkness into light, and is walked from light back to the dark in the end. Short or long, a straight path or a strange and twisting trail, blackwinged Lady Undm sees us enter in to life and light, and meets us again at the end for good or ill, to judge or to claim. Humble Serafina, whitewinged Torchbearer, guides our steps out of the darkness and up once more to the threshold with compassion and patience."
::EMOTE:: Caius bows his head just briefly for the first invocation.
::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold bows her head.
?Pigeon? pulls the hood of her twilight-blue hooded robe back, revealing her eyes.
::EMOTE:: Leiana clasps a polished holly-bead bracelet with the opposite hand and bows her head respectfully.
::EMOTE:: Seren looks like she's not sure of what to do, so she simply reaches out to squeeze Eirlys's hand.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys peers about, then opts for making a face at the sky, returning Seren's squeeze.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon raises her hands to her hood, pushing it back to reveal her eyes as she scans the assembled group.
::SAY:: Pigeon says, "With respect I invoke them that they may look upon this man, Caius who reveres them, and upon his chosen wife, that they may hold both beneath their wings and their favour."
[ESP-STYGIAN]: * You hear in your mind the deep ringing toll of a death knell, accompanied by a wintry-blue hue of an intensity that implies it is somewhat far away. The concentrated aura is eerily still.
::EMOTE:: Caius blinks twice.
?Sarah? shakes her head slightly, as if to herself.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys artfully hides her face behind her veil.
::EMOTE:: Leiana shifts a little on her feet against the tree she is leaning against, but doesn't move otherwise.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon indicates first Caius, then Eirlys with a lift of her hand, then, bowing slightly, says to them, "Please to approach this altar, both of you together."
::EMOTE:: Caius nods and strides forward, slow strides so that Eirlys may keep up with him. Because she's short, and all that.
[ESP-STYGIAN]: * You hear in your mind the deep ringing toll of a death knell, accompanied by a wintry-blue hue of an intensity that implies it is somewhat far away. The concentrated aura is eerily still.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys follows beside Caius, blue-green eyes finally, blissfully serious.
Wisteria-Purple leans softly on Fiery-Scarlet.
::EMOTE:: Fiery-Scarlet gently squeezes Wisteria-Purple's hand, watching with bated breath.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon turns her face towards Seren, holding out her other hand. "Seren, bride's maiden, say now what you wish to say to your sister, and to her chosen husband."
[ESP-STYGIAN]: * You hear in your mind the deep ringing toll of a death knell, accompanied by a wintry-blue hue of an intensity that implies it is somewhat far away. The concentrated aura is eerily still.
::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold looks to Seren and smiles, listening quietly.
::EMOTE:: Seren looks a little shellshocked for a moment, and her mouth opens, but nothing comes out. She presses her hands together in front of her and then straightens, as though coming to a decision as she looks toward them. "I'd thought to begin this with a poem, but well, I think instead, I shall just say what is on my heart."
::SAY:: Seren asks, "Because what are the Branwen sisters if not adaptable?"
Eirlys grins at Seren.
Wisteria-Purple grins.
::EMOTE:: Alia grins at that, smiling warmly at Seren.
::SAY:: ?Sarah? whispers, "Tiny."
[ESP-STYGIAN]: * You hear in your mind the deep ringing toll of a death knell, accompanied by a wintry-blue hue of an intensity that implies it is somewhat far away. The concentrated aura is eerily still.

::EMOTE:: Pigeon's mouth quirks slightly.
::EMOTE:: Caius blinks twice, the corners of his mouth twitching.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys tries really, really hard not to laugh. Her eyes crinkle at the corners and she just snorts quietly, hand pressed to her mouth.
Harvest-Gold grins.
::EMOTE:: ?Sarah? continues watching the proceedings with a decidedly pleased smile.
You think to yourself, "And eight months ago I thought I liked tall girls. What in the world was I thinking?"
[ESP-GRAY]: * A blip of the color Sea-Green fades from the edge of your mind's eye. *
[ESP-GRAY]: * A blip of the color Sea-Green winks on at the edge of your mind's eye. *
::EMOTE:: Seren projects her voice. "When Eiry and I were growing up, besides her antics of one time putting a needle in someone's chair because they were being rude, we used to go out on a hill and count the stars. And we'd hold hands and talk about what we hoped our wedding day would be. And we would laugh and smile. And this, it goes so far beyond what I could have dreamed, what I would have wished." She smiles and looks to Eirlys. "You love fiercely. You hve the biggest heart, the kindest eyes, and you hold on with a fierce determination that is unmatched. That is how I hope you enter this new period in your life. This new chapter. By holding on tightly, loving fiercely, walking determinedly, and always ever being who you are. Taking the moments and wrestling them to where they should be, and enjoying every moment of it. During the good and the bady and every time in between." She then turns to Caius.
Harvest-Gold beams happily at Seren!
::EMOTE:: Wisteria-Purple just lets her eyes sweep closed on a soft smile.
Arna (Purple) smiles at Seren.

[ESP-GRAY]: * A blip of the color Sea-Green winks on at the edge of your mind's eye. *
::EMOTE:: A little sniffle comes from Leiana's direction and she is seen blinking her eyes rapidly.
::EMOTE:: Alia beams brightly at that, eyes lighting up as she nods rapidly in agreement to Seren's words.
::EMOTE:: Expression softening, Eirlys gazes at her sister with a fond smile.
::EMOTE:: "And you." Seren says with a bright smile. "I know that you know the gift that you are given, but I hope you realize the gift that you are as well. She and I did not always have something to smile about or to look forward to. But you have done something that no one else could do." She glances around for a moment. "You have seen her. You have seen who she is. You know her. And she knows you. You are good to her and you make her smile." She takes a moment to collect herself. "Ever since I met you, I saw her happiness and that's all it took, although you have been a brother to me many times over. But I have always wanted her happiness. I hope that you know that both of you deserve each other, both of you are enough, and both of you will likely keep me giggling with your antics and happy with your love for years to come. Also, I can't wait to be an aunt." She smiles and steps back. "I love you both."
::EMOTE:: Leiana stifles a little chuckle among her sniffles.
Harrow smiles at Seren.
::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold Harvest-Gold's eyes soften and she smiles brightly at Seren and then the weding couple.
::EMOTE:: Seren adds quickly, "don't start rumors! I mean, I hope to be an aunt at some point!"
Harvest-Gold giggles!
Eirlys glances at you.
Arna (Purple) giggles!
::EMOTE:: Caius closes his dark eyes briefly, and then snorts a laugh.
Alia grins.
::EMOTE:: ?Sarah? bobs her head emphatically.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon nods her acknowledgement to Seren, smiling a little, before turning her attention back to the couple before her.
::EMOTE:: Wisteria-Purple just lets go of Fiery-Scarlet's hand for a moment to clasp her hands against her chest, her eyes sparkling with unshed tears. She swallows and chuckles at the comment.
::SAY:: Pigeon says, "I am not native to these lands, just as so many of those who now live here are also far from their home countries. My god is not your god, but I ask his blessing upon you now, as I would for a sister or a brother, if I still had such. I follow the ways of my lost clan and marry you in their way."
Harvest-Gold smiles at Pigeon.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon glances from Eirlys to Caius, a smile lurking in her eyes.
::EMOTE:: ?Sarah? slants Pigeon a reassuring little smile as she watches.

::EMOTE:: Harvest-Gold stifles a laugh.
?Sarah? smiles.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys pouts, lowering the bread she had readily aimed.
::EMOTE:: Pigeon patiently waits for the small crusts to be consumed.
::EMOTE:: Alia smiles softly at Pigeon's words, a kind of knowing look in her eyes for a split second.
::EMOTE:: Fiery-Scarlet trembles, his shoulders shaking. His lips press firmly together so as not to let out his laughter that, for now, remains silent.
::EMOTE:: "Do they feed them to each other?" Leiana whispers loudly at Alia.
::EMOTE:: Eirlys reaches out, lightly bumping her bread against Caius's in a bread toast.
[FROM Pigeon (OOC)]: Eat bread all, dammit <g>
Eirlys takes a bite of a small loaf of wheat bread, then proceeds to finish it off.
::EMOTE:: Alia glances at Leiana and shrugs, giving her a clueless look, grinning.
::EMOTE:: Caius snorts a laugh.

::EMOTE:: Pigeon lifts the double-handled loving cup from the table next. She spills a small amount to the earth, a libation and a thanks to the Mountain Father, then says, "Here is drink, that you may never thirst save for the company of one another, each to each."

::EMOTE:: Eirlys takes a few moments to find the end of the skein, holding it between her fingers. She reaches first for Caius's left hand, then corrects then goes for his right. Confused, she gives up and takes his left hand, laying her smaller hand against his. She glances up as a pinecone is tossed from seemingly nowhere, coming to land at Caius's feet.
Leiana grins.
::EMOTE:: Caius smiles down briefly at Eirlys, and then over at the distance, a little more pensively.
You think to yourself, "That must be Kordelia. I wish you would come out and join us. But I suppose people will be people."
::EMOTE:: Still holding the remaining end of the scarlet thread, Pigeon winds the length of it about their two hands, binding them fast together and tucking the last end piece between Caius' fingers. Straightening and taking one step back, she says, "With this thread I bind you, hand to hand and heart to heart, as the threads of your lives are now also bound together in partnership and trust. Let no knife cut this thread, let none of the troubles of life sever your bond, and may you both together be each other's strength and stay against all trials."
::EMOTE:: Raising her voice slightly to carry, Pigeon proclaims, "Before the gods and these here gathered, let it be known, you are wed."
::EMOTE:: Arna (Purple) smiles warmly at the wedded couple.
Harvest-Gold applauds.

The following is posted on behalf of Seren's player, who was amazing and performed this on horseback, with a lute and a torchlight procession.

A sincere thanks to everyone who came and had fun and took part in a moment in my character's life that she never thought she'd ever experience again.
Gorth, you're fantastic to roleplay with. Please never stop making me laugh with your silly emotes and awful puns.
Jaliyana, you know I always love you. Friends forever, and Eiry and Seren's story can once again continue.
Lamia, you're always a damn wonderful person to roleplay with! We would never have imagined a more perfect ceremony, laughter and all. And truly, everyone made the laughter all the better.
Thank you everyone so, so much! Please enjoy the song, and remember, don't eat the duck.


The night is bright and beautiful
The joy is absolute
Our voices raise together
Play the drum and play the lute
Tie a ribbon round the couple
Dance around them two by two
Grab the folks and grab the horses
Hold your skirts and watch the boots.

We wish joy and every blessing
For your souls are well entwined
Let us harmonize together
drink the whisky and the wine
Let your hearts find perfect rhythm
May you both laugh loud and long
For what love has brought together
It is sure and it is strong.

Hold the torches good and steady
Let the night be bathed in flame
Let the warmth suffuse our going
And the moon beams sing your name
May the laughter last forever
May the tears dry quick and fast
May the tie that threads your lives be tight
May the knot last long and fast.

We wish joy and every blessing
For your souls are well entwined
Let us harmonize together
drink the whisky and the wine
Let your hearts find perfect rhythm
May you both laugh loud and long
For what love has brought together
It is sure and it is strong.

When the wind comes tearing down the plains
The snow pour cold and wet
May your love withstand the blow
May your hearts never forget.
For in order to enjoy the good you must withstand the bad
Let your love hold strong and stubborn
And laugh more than you are sad.

We wish joy and every blessing
For your souls are well entwined
Let us harmonize together
drink the whisky and the wine
Let your hearts find perfect rhythm
May you both laugh loud and long
For what love has brought together
It is sure and it is strong.

So happy I got to witness this, and get blown away by everybody's roleplay all over again. Thanks for keeping little Shadgard alive with your wonderfulness.
Stop putting watermellons into the first thing you see that looks like it can hold a watermellon. It is most rude, because you'll only make them feel like they don't belong.

Touching and comical the way all weddings ought to be.

Wish I could've joined everyone, but I'm thankful for the log!

Nearly three years, I've been playing this game. I've played a handful of characters, mostly just as ways to feel out the system. But this is the second character that I have played for more than a year. Both of them have been majorly impactful to me, as a person, helping me better my abilities with communication, story telling and general empathy. Sometimes I look back and think, 'What if I had just approached that first character a little different, or not retired her in the first place and just took some time.' But then I realize that I wouldn't have done this.

It hasn't always been peaches and whipped cream playing Caius, but all I can say is thanks, guys.

Eirlys, and her player, there are a lot of things I could thank you for, but we'll keep it in game. It's something great, when you can find someone to roleplay with that you just click with. The stories just flow together, and it all feels natural. Thanks for that.

Pigeon and her player, you've been here for a long time. Thanks for doing the wedding. Thanks for also being one of those people who I've always just found some natural tempo with.

Everyone else, thanks for coming. The ceremony itself was wonderful, but I'm glad people found a reason to get some good roleplay in that was more than the usual.
