[ Masquerade ]

Who: Everyone! Even the grouches :D
When: Friday Evening
Where: Park
Format: Paragraph/action/whatever you like
What: Masquerade Par-tay!
Warnings: None...yet.

The park was lit up by lights and of course the stars that night. Tents were pitched up where refreshments and food were served. Tables and chairs were scattered throughout the space and a small area was set aside for those who wanted to dance. A small orchestra was there to provide music.

Along with the servers, there were a few Anatolians that were around and soon a couple more people were filing in. As more people showed up, the host, Charles Bridgeford, would step forward and get everyone's attention.

"I thank you all for showing up to this affair. Hopefully we can forge bonds and make new friends tonight. I encourage masks stay on till the end of the evening, then you can formally get to know those you have acquainted yourself with. Please, enjoy the evening."

Of course. I always endeavor to please a lady. Even when she refuses my suggestion of a shawl.

[ salve, ladies. look at your man. now, back to me. now back at your man. now back to me. sadly, he is not me.

you all know this mysterious masked man (http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs45/i/2009/103/a/4/Persian_Mask_2_by_merimask.jpg) is the most manly man at this party. he is the man you wish your man could be. let's make it worse and mention the fact that he looks like a gqmf in that suit (http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ljavy3BqzH1qddfboo1_500.jpg) and he's totally got a hot date (http://scorched-logs.livejournal.com/199457.html?thread=4526625#t4526625). together, they are probably the 'hottest masquerade couple' and you know it.

you jelly?

manliness and shenanigans aside, he's actually here for a reason! and it's not because a small child told him to escort shirley, nope, not entirely. he's here to do some recon hell yeah, and scope out some native political climate. time to eavesdrop these bitches. ]

[is totally here because a small child told her to go. but it's cool because ezio is hot, and shirley likes him besides that. she is sticking awfully close to him, though, because you know what sucks? being hit on by other men for straying enough.]

Have you discovered anything of interest?

[yeah, she knows you are eavesdropping. and thinks it a little funny while she sips her champagne.]

too bad she arrives on the arm of the manliest man (http://scorched-logs.livejournal.com/199457.html?thread=4525857#t4525857) ever. and they're hotter than hell, together.

[It had taken some scourging of the shops and some help from Shirley to pick out something appropriately respectable for this party, and her disposable income fund was definitely hurting after it, but Asellus sat at a table, a glass of claret in her hand that almost matched the eyes behind her mask (http://www.amasquerade.com/images/products/larger_images/11033gold.jpg); she sipped very carefully, as her dress (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-aUD_z9OxHo/S0y2paS0DkI/AAAAAAAAAvA/zpjHs0Ad1BQ/s400/cream-lace-victorian-dress-vintage-textile.jpg) would be ruined by any staining. Normally she stayed away from white as a rule, but something about this dress had called to her, and it both made her skin look darker than the milk-pale it had been when she arrived in Anatole and accented how delicate her features could be.

She might even stay quiet long enough to keep that impression alive. (But it was unlikely.)]

[Quorra hasn't bothered with a mask or a dress. Instead? She's just wearing her usual light suit and her helmet (http://i485.photobucket.com/albums/rr211/Veidt/Quorraconceptart.png). Which is going to make eating and drinking difficult, but it will definitely preserve the mystery until the end of the night.

Nobody can see it, but she's grinning behind the black opaque surface as she watches the goings-on. She wanders about, swinging her arms with barely-contained energy as she admires the park, its lights and decorations and the people in all their finery.]

[Quorra is hard to miss in the crowd, given how modern she looks in comparison to many of the others. And those glowing lines of her light suit in particular draw Rex's attention almost immediately.]

You are totally rockin' that suit and it looks ever cooler in person. You've probably got the most awesome gear at this party.

[Sebastian is one of the few people without a mask or a costume. He looks as he usually does, in the pristine black suit and tailcoat. He walks swiftly among the guests to hand out glasses of wine or champagne, or to collect empty glasses, or pausing to tell one of the other uniformed servers what to do, or directing you to the food tent, or setting up the croquet field, if it is so desired by enough guests.

In other words, he's everywhere. And he's going to make sure Mr. Bridgeford's party is a success.

[Rukia is still a little unsure about whether or not she will enjoy attending the masquerade, but at least she is happy with her appearance. She is wearing a pink gown (http://www.chictini.com/chictini_items/3961-exquisite-pink-satin-ball-gown-formal-dress), but it is the pink mask and bunny ears that she really fancies. She is also happy to be attending in Ukitake's company.]

[Rukia gives him a smile as she walks into the park on his arm. It is hard for her to feel too nervous when her captain's kind presence is by her side.]


It looks wonderful, doesn't it?

[identity profile] maelstroms.livejournal.com 2011-06-10 03:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[ It does.

The lights lining the pathways and trees are a dream, reminding him of bonbori festival lanterns and of fireflies. And as he walks — his strides short, his pace easy to accommodate for the slip of a girl on his arm — he can't help but smile as well. The hum of conversation is pleasant to his ears, the venue is stunning, and most of all, Rukia is high spirits, her liking for her costume shining through from beneath her mask.

He matches her with a pink handkerchief tucked into the pocket of his suit (http://i1000.photobucket.com/albums/af130/avichuu/ukitakesuit.png), the crisp white material of the garment tailoring easily to his tall frame. Though he's a little more than unused to the styles of Western clothing, he forgets to be awkward when he glances down at her, his brown eyes vibrant beneath a mask (http://i1000.photobucket.com/albums/af130/avichuu/ukitakemask.jpg) of his own. And for a moment, he regards Rukia in the manner in which a father might eye his daughter before sending her off to the ball for the night, his grin deepening by a hair.

Even cuter than Chappy, she is. ]


Aa. It's splendid, the lights especially. I'm glad you decided to join me, Rukia.

[ He pauses then, to further survey their surroundings, his gaze falling upon the crowds of people and passing waitstaff. ]

Perhaps you'd like something to drink...?

[ There's champagne, and wine, and not to mention champagne. Also lemonade, coffee, and tea if those are more suited to her taste. ]

[Everyday is a masquerade for Snake-Eyes. Tonight's no different. You'll find him at the gathering's outer edges in the same black neo-ninja garb he'd arrived in, silently observing every new arrival and pacing among (but never actually approaching anyone in) the various groups. The city's movers and shakers are out in force tonight, to say nothing of the other Scorched. This is a chance a new arrival can't pass up.]

[The idea of a masquerade had initially baffled him. This city had just survived an invasion of 'rabid catgirls'. The sane things to do would have been to expedite rebuilding, beef up security, and impose a nightly curfew for at least a month.]

[That was until he'd remembered people could and would do as they pleased. To each his own. If that meant they'd party as a form of catharsis, so be it. Anatole's a democracy, near as Snake-Eyes can tell. Living in one means you can believe in whatever the hell you want as long as you behave. It's not perfect, sure... but it's the best way to live.]

[He plucks a glass from a passing waiter, who registers the loss a full twenty seconds later. Snake-Eyes reminds himself to get scarce just before the masks come off.]

[ There's a Gwen in the vicinity, though she hadn't had time to get a costume - she only had enough to get a mask. It was so remniscent of the one she had back home, she couldn't help herself. Spying the dark clad gentleman, she wandered in his direction. ]

priscilla: (Awakened: If you're a miracle)

[personal profile] priscilla 2011-06-10 10:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Priscilla had not been terribly sure she would even go to the party. She could remember... something. A vague memory of crowds and laughter, and drinking (not her, of course), from a life long ago - or at least a life... significantly fuzzy. It was for that reason that she considered attending at all.

[Still, the idea made her oddly uncomfortable and slightly... skittish. It was for that reason that she likely would have remained away if Isley hadn't offered to accompany her.]

[She'd needed his help to choose her clothing, too. Even in her humanish state, Priscilla had never been particularly fashion conscious, or concerned for appearances, but since her awakening she had taken to wearing whatever she happened to find - slip dresses, other people's shirts. But today, her gown curls around her legs and spills over the ground behind her like gold flame, mingling with the shimmer off her sheer gold-toned cloak, even as she hides her face behind an exquisite black and gold mask.]

[The clothes hadn't made her more comfortable with attending, either. But anticipation is always worse than reality, and now that she's here, she finds herself far less uncomfortable than she'd expected. Even so, she stands apart from the crowd, watching them, feeling the life pulse inside the room. Feeling their energy.... and watching them with her odd, inhuman eyes.]

[She's drawn by the color as she passes, the split and spill of gold that echoes all the tiny lights along the walkway and in the trees.

Staionary false-lights, not-quite-fireflies that make her both melancholy and warm. For the briefest moment she'd contemplated smashing them for all they reminded her of, but as usual lately, the compulsion gives way to heartache, which gives way to a need for distraction.

Of course she'll choose the distraction that reminds her most of what she's edging away from...

...or is that toward?

Her own dress (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_YnoYx6q3rX0/TJj_QElJDLI/AAAAAAAAACQ/rmJY4bkZR44/s1600/Cygne+Noir+(Black+Swan)+evening+dress+by+Christian+Dior+1949+1950.JPG) is less ornate than she's used to, a bit closer to the attire she wore a lifetime ago.

The bones from the direwolf she slew (http://sonvisage.livejournal.com/1124.html?thread=2148#t2148) have been arranged into another mask of sorts, clean and stark against the careful updo of that great mass of hair. Grinning balefully when she turns, revealing a second face to the crowd behind her.]


I wasn't sure I'd see you here.

[Facing Priscilla, masked (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51iLichsduL._SL500_AA300_.jpg) only barely (a mask over a mask, perhaps?), she smiles just a little.]

It's rather hard not to, in that dress. My compliments to the tailor~

[and (surprise surprise) here comes Spike. Not dressed up even slightly. …Not dressed differently, anyway. A lot of history, choices, and violence went into the composition of that get-up. As only Buffy really knows.

He's circling the perimeter of the twinklylights, staying well clear of the dancing; and pauses at Buffy, likely to move past again in a little bit. But he can never just walk past Buffy.

Striking a folded-arms-shoulder-propped pose against the nearest tree, he says to her,]

[Winding her way through the crowd, head high and mask-obscured, hair pulled into a reasonable coif, not even black-clad. She's gone for green instead - this is echoed in her careful and purposeful (will link here if i ever find the mask again) choice of mask.

She'd considered killing the shopgirl until her eyes had been caught by that piece.

A sign?

Maybe.

So close now as she passes them - some here and some there - a smattering of faces that she recognizes from the network, some that she's spoke to briefly. Some that she's spoke to at length.

Some she's hurled curses at with pride and fury and a smile.

Ah, look. There's one now.]

Don't you look nice? That dress is very flattering on you.

[ Freya didn't come in costume, or mask. In fact, if she were asked, she wasn't ever there at all. Rather, she risked being near enough to see the pretty outfits and the laughing people, without actually attending, perched in a tree with a faraway look on her face. ]

[ And it is precisely that tree which Ukitake happens across during his stroll through the park, a flute of champagne still in his hand. Immediately, he is attuned to the girl's presence in the branches above him, and he wonders, however fleetingly, if he could be trespassing. Should he make his own presence known?

He is silent as he moves to lean against the trunk of the tree, though he does glance upward, eyes searching through the foliage to glimpse at her. And in the spur of the moment, he offers her a sheepish smile as he raises his glass, having made the decision to openly address her. ]


I hope you wouldn't mind it too greatly, if we were to share this spot for now...?

[ It is rather nice, boasting a view of the masquerade, even from the ground. ]

[personal profile] heartbetween 2011-06-11 12:25 am (UTC)(link)
[It's a beautiful place and a lovely, clear night, and Kaien is in high spirits as he makes his entrance to the masquerade. He's dressed in a white dress shirt under his blue overcoat and striped pants of a slightly lighter shade with a matching blue mask.

On top of that, his captain is here, along with Rukia. The only thing that could make this night better is if Miyako were were still here.

But this isn't the time to dwell on losses. No, this is a day to celebrate what they have, the Scorched and Anatolians coming together after the city was nearly destroyed. It's a celebration of the fact they're still alive.

And Kaien is determined to do just that.]

[ It's been so long since she went to her last party, since she was last here, in fact. Even longer since she went shopping for her own dress, for something special and perfect.

She's happy, excited, even, to wear her new mask (http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/xtaisax/Untitled.png) and pink dress (http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k539/xtaisax/E543079Pink__1.png), chosen specifically for this event. She's rather proud of it, too, and she's looking for those choice people she expects to be in the crowd so she can show it off. The always present panda on her shoulder sits proudly with her own mask, made of purple paper, cut a little unsteadily, but she doesn't seem like she'll be stealing anyone else's at the moment.

That does not mean the trip here was easy. She can't get used to the feel of that woman, that feeling that leaves her uneasy and a little shaken. She puts on her brave face, this is Scar's friend, that person that he cared enough to invite her to, obviously. She spares each a glance, almost curious about their relationship. Something seems off about it.

But perhaps this party is what they need? ]

It is more formal than I thought...

[ Not that it bothers her. It only helps rid her of that uneasy feeling, allows her those moments to relax and breathe in the air of the park, the people, the lights and she cannot help but smile. It reminds her of those formal balls in the fairy tales she's read here. ]

What will we do first?

[ Eat? Dance? Mingle? She turns back to them. Mei isn't sure how much she can trust her, not with that strange feeling she remembers well, but that isn't really the point right now. Scar likes her well enough and she is a very pretty woman. Maybe this party is what they need.

She'll be kind enough to give some space, too. Of course, she'll have to keep watch. Scar needs help, after all. ]

[Yachiru finds Mei in the crowd somehow - she's the only other person here who is her height, it seems. And while Yachiru has the odd Amestrian couple to keep watch over, Yachiru is keeping an eye on her "date" for the night as well, and Break cannot be more than a few feet from her even now. She approaches and taps Mei on the shoulder to get her attention. Even with the masks and dresses, she would still recognize her friend. Besides, who could miss little Xiao-Mei there?]

Mei-Mei! Your dress is pretty!

[She leans in, smiling, and touches the sparkly part of the mask.]

I like your mask, too!

[ No costume for Gwennie, so it's easy to pick her out in a crowd. Casual gear, a mask, and let's not forget a drink. Though she found herself wishing for a Mr. Slurpee by the second - she was kind of glad there wasn't one. It was tradition with her, Ben and Kevin at this point. She was content to sit back for the moment, drink in hand, and bask in the ambiance, watching for familiar faces with masks. ]

[identity profile] pandamaiden.livejournal.com 2011-06-13 01:37 am (UTC)(link)
[ She is clearly different from everyone else, most of which are dressed up very fancy. Perhaps she has not been here long? Or maybe these sorts of functions aren't her style.

Mei hasn't paid much attention to the network, busy helping out in the city, rebuilding, even if she knew it'd come back eventually. People couldn't wait to move forward and she knew that much from experience, so she really can't know, but that doesn't matter, does it? She comes up to Gwen and offers her a cookie to go with her drink. She's got a couple others in her other hand, but this one is special for her. She likes being able to have food she can share. ]

[It's a party.

Yachiru shows up in the pretty new dress and mask Break got for her. Usually Yachiru is much more exuberant than this, but somehow the mask (chosen specifically because it looks like Pachi's face) makes her feel a little lighter, so she isn't quite so depressed as she could be. Still, she isn't running around, squealing and causing havoc like she usually does. Instead, she sticks close to Break, not letting him get out of her sight and often holding onto his hand. They've been almost inseparable in the last few days, and she'd be happy if it stayed that way. But she is keeping her eye out for some of her other friends, too.]

[Dawn is a little fidgety and a lot excited, because she's never been on a date before, and this date? Well, between the tiny butler sandwiches and the croquet and lights? This is going to be the best date ever. (She went through three dresses before she settled on the one she now wears (http://www.nexteve.com/images/D/FA148A.jpg), and her geary little shoes (http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQJn6yf1d54xoOyi6HeiKImUuMvOQLfERNCLw6SXh4blfu-N-V1) have stopped in between flats and heels - something of a kitten heel? Yes, even her shoes are trolling her a little.

Oh, and by the way, it's a proton pack (http://www.retroist.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/comiccon_mascarade_130-Wired.jpg) that she had the Tunnelmen make, not a leafblower. No, she doesn't know why, except that she didn't exactly want to dress as a superhero, so a ghostbuster was the next closest thing, right?

And no words about her choice of mask (http://www.magicofvenezia.com/catalog/G1g_a.jpg), okay? It was the last one they had.]

[Fortunately, Rex has been on dates before. In fact, Dawn reminds him of Annie, a girl his best friend set him up with once... Cute, sweet and...a bit on the adorably derpy and adventurous side. At least from what he knows of Dawn so far, anyway. The bonus in Dawn's favor, however, is that she's not horrifically accident prone. Between Annie and a giant, six-legged mutant rabbit with anger management issues, Prom night had nearly been ruined. But this night? This would go better. A LOT better. Rex was sure of it.]

[Slipping up beside Dawn from out of the crowd, Rex offers her one of the two drinks he's carrying.]

Lemonade? A lot of what they've got here belongs on a fancy wine list, so I figured this was the safe bet.

[To be honest, Raki is not really sure what this "masquerade" is all about. From what he gathered through the conversations on the network, some sort of mask was needed. And...well, he already needed a new set of clothes from the ordeal with Riful and then the hellcats.

So here he is, feeling a little uncomfortable in his brand new suit, pants, (http://www.polyvore.com/steampunk_tumblr/thing?id=32189536#) and boots (http://www.polyvore.com/tesla-102_mens_steampunk_leather_boots/thing?id=36360121), along with a silver mask (http://i55.tinypic.com/rayr29.jpg) obtained from a few hours helping the vendor at one of the shops. He's left his sword at home, because he at least thinks it's probably not appropriate to bring a weapon to something like this.

Raki's not exactly a shrinking violet when it comes to meeting and talking to people, but the fact remains that he's just not sure what to do, here.]

[ Clare's dress isn't visible under the large coat she's wearing, and her pale mask is eggshell thin and just as featureless. Her sharp-cut blonde hair is swept up and back. All in all, she's practically anonymous.

Everything is confusing right now — part of her is terrified at the choice she will have to make in her heart if she runs into Priscilla at this party. Desperately, she wishes she were human.

But she'd know Raki anywhere, even older and more bulked out as he is. And even with all the changes and differences, the sight of him calms her. She approaches him, taps his shoulder politely, and holds out one lace-gloved hand.

Walk with me?

[ She wonders if he'll know her. ]

[Erik is a fairly late arrival, as he assumes a later crowd will make for easier eavesdropping. He knows that more time equals more drinks, and that more drinks equal looser lips and more involved conversations.

He’s a towering, somber figure slipping through the crowd; mostly staying near its edge. Too depressive to deal with undue attention, he’s opted to play shade rather than spectacle, so it’s all black for him tonight, featureless mask included. The only color to his ensemble is the yellow of his eyes, which catch the light in ways no ordinary man’s would.

Of course, he’s fearless and shameless enough to chance a flick of the wrist when he passes near the more opulently dressed party-goers. He’s a quick enough pickpocket – and his targets are drunk enough – that no one notices a thing.

The strangeness of many of the party-goers is not lost upon him – nor are the quirks of the costuming.

He’s never been a superstitious fellow – ghosts, gods and magic are the thralls of weaker men, weaker minds. At its best the ‘supernatural’ has been a tool for him, a way to weasel simpler sorts into compliance with his will. Yet in this crowd, and nearly certain he is on the other side of death – he finds himself inclined toward consideration of possibilities he’s previously dismissed.

Hell, he thinks. Maybe this is hell.

But more importantly, where is the Claret?]

[ erik is hardly the only watcher tonight; ezio is doing the exact same thing, though with an inherently different style of execution-- hide in plain sight. he watches and listens, but does not steal; a beautiful lady (http://scorched-logs.livejournal.com/199457.html?thread=4526625#t4526625) one one arm to complete his disguise, and when separated from her, approached often enough by others.

this gqmf does not miss erik's shenanigans and watches with detached interest. perhaps he'll catch your eye, signor thief. ]
