(OOC: I am officially back from Europe! It was a wonderful trip, but I’ve missed my bed and my cat and being able to post/write, so I’m happy to be back. ^_^)

Soraya shook her head a bit, though unsure why… it wasn’t like Fai could see her doing it. “No… nothing wrong. More of a observation, maybe,“ she said as she reached into her cloak pocket again and felt the pouch. “I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but I am from the Golden Empire of Aer’Oro,“ she said. “My empire was once a great ally of Arcadia, although… for me, they were only stories. So I thought. I mean… the relics of those days should have been proof enough that your home was once real for me, but… seemed I needed to meet you to really understand it…“ she said, leaving out that she’d met Fii prior, too… But with Fai and the way the relics, the bracelets, resonated and responded to her presence, her magic… they belonged to her, it would seem. She didn’t realize Abbadon was watching her with some concern for her behavior. How could he know she protected a relic from Fai’s home? It was a secret charge handed down to her from her father, and was a responsibility he took upon himself as the ambassador in Arcadia.

Amara looked back and forth between the girls as they engaged in a bit of a tête-à-tête. She merely held her tongue and took it all in, smiling and shaking her head a little. “It’s nice to meet you both. Last minute weddings don’t scare me,“ she assured them. “You wouldn’t be the first to be sent my way. There’s a reason for that. Why don’t you two come inside and let’s get started. I’d like to get an idea of what you’re looking for in a dress. This is, after all, your special night,“ the girl said with a smile, moving aside to let the tigress and the unicorn into her room, which was partitioned off with lovely hanging tapestries to separate her room from her work studio, and she could move the sheer fabrics aside to open it all up when she wished.

Orion nodded a bit as Safira explained her ‘intrusion’ into their meeting. He understood. Honestly, he’d had those moments himself, overhearing Helios or his ridiculous pawns walking around Unkindness, shooting their mouths off about those who were ‘beneath them’ for whatever reason -- mainly for being different in some way… and it often took him all he had not to get in their faces about it. He wasn’t a Guard then, after all, and his mouth had gotten him in the isolation rooms in the tree root systems for a time here or there. He’d been fined, or rather his father would be, because Orion struggled to make his own way in Unkindness much of the time before Helios was ousted, because Helios secretly made it so difficult for those who were unique… which certainly didn’t help Orion’s relationship with his Councilman father, who followed the same vein of belief as Helios. Pure was best, and anything else was a taint. His father saw mixed breeds as an abomination -- which meant he saw his own son that way, and even their new queen and the new prince and princess born to Delilah and Acerbus. It was amazing, to Orion, that his father remained in the Council at all, and only because he held his opinions for the privacy of their home.

“Yeah, like Rotta said… no worries,” he agreed. He then looked to Rotta when the younger raven read the response from Rachel denying his request to have her little band of thieves to assist. “Wait… your mother is on the Council?” he asked Safira, a tad confused. She didn’t look too much like a raven, but… mixed breeds never were quite as they appeared. “Who?”

Eros turned a little when he heard Acerbus mention that there was more to talk to Twilight about, having been unaware of Soraya’s request. He stood by quietly, listening.

Twilight felt Jupiter’s hand take her’s and she seemed to snap out of her thoughts after a moment, looking down at their hands and then up at him. Slowly, her eyes traveled back to where her big brother was sitting. It was a lot to take in. She nodded some as Jupiter suggested it would be good to speak with Dimael. He surprised her a bit, honestly… She’d thought he’d be more opposed, and yet she had this feeling that when she met Dimael… she’d recognize that she’d felt him around for a while. “Right… I mean… I’ll meet him,“ she said.

Eros nodded some and glanced in Acer’s direction. “Should I go escort him?“ he asked Acerbus, knowing the route that would keep Dimael concealed from unkindness, so they wouldn’t be alerted to his presence any more than some already were.

Koi glanced over her shoulder as Rachel took a moment to read some message and respond. She looked ahead again at her own reflection, taking a deep breath. She wondered if Mars would like it. Though she already knew the answer to that, which made her both blush and smile to herself. She looked down, running her hands along the fabric. “Did you hear… that I was offered a seat on the Council?“ she asked Rachel quietly, wondering if she knew Acerbus had been planning to offer her what was once her father’s position.

Vera looked at Rio as he spoke, almost as though he were laying out facts and the words were nothing too important. Loose, no attachment, but with some benefits. “…Did you sleep with her?“ she asked, trying to figure out just what ‘benefits’ implied, even if it felt a bit forward to ask. Crys had mentioned Rio had flings and flirtations before, so in a way, she wasn’t surprised to learn there was a history of sorts with Gizmo. It definitely explained his unease in going to see her. Though she had to wonder if there was more to it. Just what had happened to make him this uncomfortable to see that girl?

Saffy laughed at his playful remark, “Never just hopeless, Duncan,“ she assured him with a smile. She blushed a bit and nodded, “It is…“ she agreed, unsure why the thought of La’Shire being the catalyst for repopulation got her blushing. It wasn’t like they weren’t one of those couples that couldn’t keep their hands off each other in the castle. “It’s no wonder the castle has to keep expanding,“ she noted. “We’re lucky we have some of the Lemurian architects here to see it done right,“ she added as they walked. She reached out her free hand to run over a few flowering branches as they moved by.

“Serg, do you plan to have such high expectations of your kids one day?“ Blake asked curiously as they walked, letting Horace walk ahead of them, Blake having directed him towards the kitchen. Blake still didn’t know Serg and Nascha were trying, though!

Juno smiled a bit and shook her head, looking at Torin. “That was just… basic training,“ she said. All part of being a soldier. She wasn’t a soldier anymore, though… she wasn’t sure what she was. That was probably part of her problem. She stopped at the staircase and sighed, looking up the large, spiraling steps. “Why the rooftop gardens?“ she asked with a sigh before heading up with him to meet up with Yuuri and Senn.

Sandy tipped her head back to look at Panro, tipping her head into the pillow a bit as she noted his blush. She smiled and moved to nuzzle his cheek. “You’re blushing…“ she said, a tinge of curiosity in her voice, wondering what she could have done to cause the rosy hue. She liked when he blushed just as much as he liked getting her to do it. Her tail danced along his under the sheets, her claws lightly and happily kneading against his back as she hugged him and held onto him. Not that he seemed to mind if his blush was any indication.

“Thank you, sir,“ Garand said before Fang left them alone. He looked at Lana and nodded. “Well… wandering around this place aimlessly looking for a moving shadow doesn’t sound all that effective. Maybe we just try… calling out to it. I mean, I’ve talked a bit with Daire since he’s settled in here and he says that the shadow realm is different from ours. Things travel through it. It’d probably hear us calling out to it from anywhere. We know it’s in the castle. Said it couldn’t leave on its own….“

Ikki walked up as Fang walked away from Garand and Lana’s room. The look on his face alone was probably enough to let Fang know that Panro and Sandy were still busy acting for like newlyweds than bride and groom to be. “Well… I left them a note and a list,” he said simply. “I can’t guarantee when you’ll get to marry the two of them,” he noted. He glanced down the hall at the room. “How’s Lana doing?” he asked curiously.
