I've tried to make the switch to wi-fi, but for some reason the whole house seems like a dead spot or it's a malfunctioning device? The last two weeks my internet has been pretty much limitted to going to the library, but my library sets an 1-hr limit per day.

Long story short, if anyone can keep Branor's character around that would be greatly appreciated. Everyone's seen enough of his character and personality I think to do him justice. There was the recent complexity with Brinn and trying to find Therian, but Bran's major cares are the play and specifically his role in it. Anything else added, I'd consider a bonus.

I think Fea is gone for the rest of the weekend, I don't know her exact plans for Therian other than Therian's disappearance had an interesting reason. I'll try to get in touch with her to see what she wants to do.

Hopefully when a member of the geek squad comes out here on Monday this wi-fi malfunction can be solved.

I'm around and have been keeping tabs for when we've progressed enough into the Day (or the next Day) for Therian to come back all proud of himself for his adventure (that I'm still keeping a secret).

Everyone can gossip about him as they like, and if they even notice he's gone, they could clearly hypothesize about his plans. Promise I'll jump in when it's time for Therian to get his self in gear again. For now, he's off having a rather tragic time that I'll deal with via flashback or dialog once he's with everyone again.

Xoxo,

me

*is curious* anything to do with the mysterious old man they met earlier?
Anyway, great you and Boro are still with us!

So, since Harry apparently doesn't want to get any Famous Last Words in, is it OK if I move our three jailbreakers to just outside Ecsichil's house later today? (Speaking of which, there's a party supposed to be going on in there, isn't it? Ang? phantom?)

I was waiting for phantom to respond to my last; I certainly strongly feel the party should be given some space to breathe before the gatecrashing.

What time are you planning on striking? At the moment we're about 6 in the afternoon, an hourish after "eleven bells" when Aldarion met Aerwen; Cirdacil and V. are only arriving at midnight; in between that I wanted to stick in a banquest, a theatricals, some flirting and Sador's Devious Proposition, but we seem to have slowed. I apologise for my part in that

Since I can see you're (rightly) eager to get going, I'll put down a save. I will fill it in either with the banquet stage or with an "extra" scene involving Cirdacil and the King I've literally just barely conceived, depending on how soon Aldarion checks back in and what phantom wants to write; I will fill this in...late tonight I think.

OK? That means if you feel you absolutely must press on now, I can make a lot of what I'd like to happen, if not perhaps all of it, be in my save

"I apologise for the delay, normal services will be resumed when the leaves have been removed from the line"

EDIT: if you do want to write it with our heroes following the carriage and finding the place easily enough, you should know that they'll find a luxurious, wide rather than tall, yellow sandstone mercantile mansion (I've described it a bit further up) at the top of the Sixth Circle where it meets the Seventh and the Citadel, and totally unguarded (Ecsichil and his wife are pleasure-loving nonentities who would employ lots of pompous liveried upper servants, but no armed security). Basically think less medieval/Renaissance, more Restoration/Regency

EDIT 2: main relevant films: Draughtsman's Contract, Barry Lyndon

actually, may I attempt to backseat drive with one further suggestion? It would be great if you could (maybe with some high-falutin' reference to Beren and Finrod's disguise) knock out some hapless servants, take their livery and mingle. My aristos with the possible exception of Aerwen wouldn't really care to tell one servant from another, and it would be a good way for your rescuers to witness the party's goings-on at a level pace

but I know, "less level, more haste" ...

No hurry, Ang - it's just that nothing else has been happening for a few days (I've been a little lazy myself), and not being sure how extensively you and phantom intend to write about the party, I meant to get things moving again. No need to get hectic.

I was thinking shortly after Cirdacil and Vëandur arrive. MA is a big city, and it'll take time to inquire after the carriage (even more after dusk - less people in the streets), so that should be realistic, no?

So maybe a post getting the three of us on our way (and maybe Dim and Nerwen can think of things happening along), and we can time our arrival whenever you see fit. We'll still have to stage our diversion and "sneak in", so there should be ample space for you to stick a number of posts about the party in between. OK?

Cool. And what about the disguise idea, do you like that? I've got this really insuperable image of Coldan in an eighteenth century powdered wig and loads of frogging

I noticed I used the very new coinage "banquest" earlier. A portmanteau word acting according to Doc. Freud indeed: epic adventure, legal chicanery and eating in one slow-simmered soup?

Ah, I had overlooked that one before. Like it! Imagine Aldarion's surprise...

All right- I have returned home, and I will try and get caught up on the story tonight or tomorrow.

Aldarion has exchanged words with Gloredhel and is prepared to trade pleasant greetings with the rest of the company, Ang. Consider him to tactfully guarded but not unfriendly, as he does not know which folks are up to what things etc. No reason to be impolite unless there is a clear reason to be, not to mention Aldarion misses going to fancy parties.

And I so love what you did with that Asta-Lúthien analogy. A jewel.

If nothing surprising happens in Coldan's absence, he'll be back in about ten minutes to report there is indeed a back door; it's locked, but that shouldn't be a problem.
(The clouds are obviously only there to prevent Asta's fireworks from burning down the house in an emergency; if they're not needed, they'll just pass on and shed their load later on Emyn Muil or wherever.)


PS. - Poor Cirdacil! And <3 King Elessar.

Your Elessar talks just like he would if Tolkien wrote that.

Kudos to Collie, Asta, and Harry! I love the rising action!


I'm still around, even though I didn't post for a whie. Thiliel is up for grabs () if anyone wants... Rollan, Sereth? If she turned around doesn't mean that she left.

Boro, do you have any thoughts about what Branor was doing all day? We can't really write for him unless we know what you want it to be.

It seems to me it would be only traditional (Shakwise) for Coldan to overhear, somehow, some part of what Sador said to Aerwen in the garden...preferably a section open to maximum misconstruction...

by the way this is the Burlach coat of arms (nicked off the ur-Burlach Cecil family...)



so that's what the servants not in swan livery will have; basically lots of little black and white lions...

Since Sador has given Aldarion a chance to have a brief chat with Gloredhel, I'm going to have the two of them go outside or near a window or something like that where Coldan or Asta or someone can give Aldarion some sort of "psst! Aldarion! what are you doing here?!" through the bushes or whatnot, and then Aldarion will respond and you can decide how they react. Sound okay?

Okay! Post is up. Anyone wishing to spot Aldarion and flag him down- go ahead before he ends up back inside.

And ruin our fun in breaking in before we find him? But why not, I'll give it a thought (unless Nerwen wants Asta to stumble into Aldy's and Glordhy's little tête-à-tête, which could be delightful).

But if you'd like Coldan to find you, do you think you or Ang could provide me with a very rough plan of Ecsichil's house and premises as you imagine them? I tried to piece it together from your post, but somehow my visualization fails me, and I'd rather not make Coldan walk through walls or get lost in non-Euclidean geometry if I can help it.

Oh, and it's a nice change to see Aldarion happy and light-hearted, if only briefly.

Yes- good idea. Ang- you have final say, so feel free to undo anything I put forth.

I read that someone had mentioned a wall in their post, so I envisioned a wall (perhaps 8 feet?) going around the perimeter. There's a gap/gate at the front and a drive up towards the house. As one approaches the house wings extend towards the front on either side of the drive (with some amount of space between the drive and the wing). The wings come very nearly up to the wall allowing room for a narrow path between them.

The path that Gloredhel and Aldarion took would've been the one wrapping around the left wing (left as one looks from the street towards the house). So they went along the wing towards the road, turned right between the outer wall and the end of the wing, then right again at the corner of the wing where the outer wall also turns. At that point they are walking in the same direction as one would walk from the street to the front door.

When exactly they encounter the gate to the garden is open to debate. Is the garden a small indentation in the left wing, or does it cut flat across the rear of the house?

Thanks, phantom, that's very helpful. Turns out I wasn't quite so confused as I thought - main thing I was unsure of is the garden in relation to the wings, but so are you, it seems.

The bad news is, I like the idea of having Coldan eavesdrop on somebody or the other and/or contacting Aldarion, but I somehow can't quite wrap my head around how or what to write tonight, and it's getting too late over here. I could do it tomorrow, but I don't want to hold you up if you feel like writing more tonight, or leave you folks in the house and my comrades in crime with a SAVE of uncertain content. Just go ahead if you want to, and we'll see what happens - or if you think you can do a decent Coldan impression, phantom, and feel like writing that interchange yourself from Aldarion's pov, you have my blessing.

all looks great to me. I'm having or beginning to have a dissertation burn down (as Mith said this game is sooo a postgraduate degree by any other name) and I hope the cackling villain speech I did last is q interesting and clarifying, so I probably won't post...all that fast. Late tomorrow?

It's fine- I won't have time to write tonight anyway. I'll possibly have a window tomorrow afternoon, but nothing for certain until late in the evening. I can wait. It's not as if there isn't another BDs project in the works that requires my attention.

*wink wink* (the annual summer tradition is coming soon!)

Here and writing. And congratulations!

EDIT: So, more or less like this? (That's what I'll work with in my post, corrections can be made later. The compass points are very much arbitrary, but I feel the garden should look south, so left wing = east, right wing = west for now.)

brilliant Pitchwife you did something for which I was far too lazy/incompetent and it's perfect. The Burlach architect was obviously a Dorwinian

The 'door' leading onto the terrace is in fact a 'Fornost' (read French) window

Glad you like it (and thank phantom for his description)! Oh, and I thought Fornost = north = gothic!

EDIT: There you are, phantom. Sorry for the length, but that was quite a lot to cover in one post.
I'm leaving whatever Aldarion and Coldan have to say to each other to you, but I think we should keep it short - there are people waiting outside. (Maybe even some kind of interruption from outside would be in order?)

Mnemo, I didn't write about Thiliel's meeting with Brinn, because I wasn't sure how you wanted her to react to the intrusion. If you want, you can use Thiliel, or we could write the dialogue via PM.

I'm glad you like it! I considered holding this conversation when Coldan would be around (the next day, most likely), so that he could overhear it, but I thought that would be too much.

Ang, if you'll give me a cue when midnight approaches I'll send Vëandur on his way to the rendezvous.

All right, Pitch- Coldan's turn to speak. We may have to make quite a few short posts to put this conversation together, but I kind of like it that way.

Today I saw a car with a license plate ASTA108. Just thought I'd say that.

Finally up, and too short for my liking, but I didn't want to take liberties. Ball's in your court, Galadriel.

Inziladun, I know it's annoying being penned in the wings, so I will think of an excuse for Cirdacil - who has already been quite disturbed by the royal visit - to disrupt his timetable further still...I'll post this scene today. Another "extra" scene, I like it when C. develops spontaneously...

Yes, actually.

I remain alive, by a thread. Life is eating me. However I still take pride in the fact that I wrote Therian's departure in a way that accounted for whatever ridiculousness came up. My goal is to be functionally active again after this weekend, at which point Therian shall be stumbling back with not a single idea what's happened without him, but he'll be extremely excited about what he's discovered about Life, the Universe, and Everything.

So, Asta's had her fireworks now. I'd say the explosion follows the dinner-gong by no more than a few minutes.

(I'm assuming here that Coldan didn't leave through the back gate.)

And yes, I know this goes against the idea that we should wait for Cirdacil and V., but the way the conversation between Coldan and Aldarion went, I thought it was important that he have no chance to report back to the other two.

Okay, so I've spent the past week... waiting for the day I'd actually leave Boston and begin my close to a week-long drive back to Alberta for the summer.

It's a long story involving a broken-into van, a damaged ignition, and missing parts but 8 days later than planned I'm off tomorrow. If we have any luck, I'll have slept off my "van-leg" in Alberta just in time for toMorrow to dawn and have Amdír reappear "as though nothing ever happened."

In the meantime... I'll see you then.
