Rumours heard around the ducal court [Aug. 30th, 2005|07:22 pm]
For Life & Liberty


Sir Geoffrey ap Gwydion is only able to function with small girls.

Lady Isarma and Lady Crysania are fighting over Baron Enyos ap Eiluned.

Lady Crysania is planning to create Baron Enyos a Count and make him Ducal Consort once she ascends the throne.

Baron Enyos is interested in young boys. He was seen buying a gift for a 14 year-old from North Philly a few weeks ago, and now he's arranging for music lessons for him!

Sir Aidan is involved with two of the Japanese dignitaries who arrived at Court on August 13.

Lady Melantha is planning to keep the ducal throne for herself. That's why she's still Regent.

Lady Jilena is actually His Grace's blood daughter! She was hidden away as a child, and is now returned to claim her rightful place as duchess.

Lady Aya is actually a spy from Pacifica.

Dame Drusilla is a spy for King Meilge of the Kingdom of Willows.

Trey's escape had to be an inside job; there's no way he could have gotten out of the dungeon otherwise.

Lady Vallaria is actually a mole for a secret society of Unseelie fae. She's going to marry Sir Darius to insinuate herself into the halls of power, then make her move when the time is right.

Hallway in Sir Darius's home in Bryn Mawr [Aug. 29th, 2005|06:50 pm]

(OOC: This entry occurs the night of the ending of the August 27th tabletop session)

Prospero walks slowly down the hallway balancing a tray with two filled teacups on saucers, a small bowl of sugar, a small cup of milk, two spoons, and a rose. He stops in front of the door to the guest room and rests the tray against his body to free one hand.

Here goes nothing. Maybe she was someone else and I'll just be worrying her over nothing. Still she should be informed of all suspects.

He raises his free hand and knocks twice on the door.

"Jilena, are you free?"

The Ohtori Dojo [Aug. 20th, 2005|03:29 pm]

((OOC: This takes place prior to the August 27, 2005 tabletop session.))

A slim young woman in shorts and a Bishoujo Senshi SailorMoon Sailor Stars T-shirt enters the Ohtori Dojo. Her black hair is pulled back into a tail, and she's carrying a triangular case ((OOC: picture here)) in one hand.

She makes her way to the office, knocking once. "Mrs. Ohtori? I'm Mayumi Kumada - we spoke on the phone?"

((OOC: Edited on August 21 to correct a typo.))

News story [Aug. 19th, 2005|12:33 pm]

Newspapers in both Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey contain a story about the murders of three young women in Camden, Gloucester City, and North Philadelphia.

Each victim was stabbed multiple times; one of them was badly beaten as well.

The victims were Erica Masters, a student at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ; Jane Palmer, a convenience store clerk in Strawberry Mansion; and Maureen O'Donnall, a student at Drexel University.

Police are urging young women to exercise caution around strangers, and not to go out unaccompanied after dark.

West Philly, a few days after Court [Aug. 18th, 2005|07:53 pm]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

((OOC: This takes place after the August 13 tabletop session.))

Valerie Ryan gets off the SEPTA and makes her way into University City, carrying a wrapped bundle of something sweet-smelling and a pale gray envelope. When she reaches a certain house with a blue door, she rings the bell once.

Mortal eyes see a slender young woman with dark hair and blue eyes, clad in a blue summer blouse and neat black linen skirt. A simple pendant, a sapphire set in silver, hangs at her throat, and there is a silver band set with a sapphire on the fourth finger of her left hand. She wears a minimum of makeup, just enough to accent her wide eyes and high cheekbones.

To those who can see beyond the mortal shell, she is revealed as a lady of the sidhe. Raven hair falls down her back in waves, not entirely hiding her delicately pointed ears. In contrast to the darkness of her hair, her flawless skin is moon-pale, her eyes the deep blue of twilight shadows. Her outfit is transformed under faerie sight into a gown of deep blue satin, its full skirts whispering about her feet. A girdle of sapphires set in silver is about her narrow waist, chiming softly with every step she takes. The gems in her ring and pendant fairly glow with Glamour.

Lady Vallaria resettles her burden and waits patiently for the door to be answered.

Ariadne finishes pulling her hair into a ponytail and pockets her keys, then makes her way downstairs. "Aya, sweets, are you ready? We're supposed to meet Saki in a little while."

Shun's room [Jul. 25th, 2005|06:11 pm]

((OOC: This takes place after the July 23, 2005 tabletop session))

Shirtless, Shun knelt on the floor of his room. With his left arm in a sling, he started to unhook his Game Cube by holding it in place with his legs and working apart the connections with his right hand.

He opened his Weiss backpack in a similar fashion, pinning it between his legs and working the zipper open. The controllers and connections went in fairly easily, but the bag wouldn't stay open wide enough to let the console in. Giving the console a reproachful look, Shun called, "Niisan!"

((OOC: This post takes place sometime after the tabletop session of For Life & Liberty that was played on July 9, 2005, but before the July 23, 2005 session.))

Shun led Aaron up the stairs from the Ohtori residence on the second floor, explaining as they climbed, "The third floor is... 'semi-finished.' It has a floor. No walls, no ceiling. All open since Niisan take apart tank. The tank. So I teach... teach you archery up here."

[mood |pissed offpissed off]

((OOC: This post picks up from here.))

Aidan stalks up the stairs to the door of the Ohtori Dojo, still seething from his recent altercation with Ariadne. **My girlfriend getting cozy with a hooker from Camden - absolutely fucking priceless! I'm gonna fucking kill Siva if she does anything to hurt Ariadne!**

He rings the upstairs doorbell perhaps a bit harder than he should, but right now he's too furious to care. **Fucking Unseelie goat-bitch...!**

He pushes the button for the doorbell again, then clenches his fists at his sides, feeling his rage simmering inside him like hot lava.

((OOC: Discreet nudity and references to homosexuality in comments. Do not read if you will be offended.))
