Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Sentinel

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Other religious holidays!

*wipes sweat from brow* Whew, political correctness is a lot of hard work. But it has to be done.

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Regardless, it was a good year on the forums - we've met some new faces, set out …

-Adara-

"Let us all return to our suites. The sentinels will escort us all. I have every assurance this is nothing more than a stunt. The palace is secure as are we all. We will come up with alternative routes to Archeon in the morning," my father said as the lights in the room came back on, illuminating Dorian in front of me. His normally powerful voice was somewhat shaky and apprehensive as he spoke. It was something the other Silvers picked up on immediately. They smelled the end of Calore rule and silver blood in the water.  

As the Silvers began to leave, my mother eyed me standing by Dorian. She had told me the best to do to try to have at least a happy marriage was to spend the night talking somewhere. With the intruders, it was almost a death sentence, but she still wanted it to continue. It was common for the night after the Parting Balls for the younger Silvers to stay awake till the procession in the morning. I was sure tonight would be no different. I waited for most of the Silvers to filter out before I spoke up.

"Would you care to join me in the gardens?" I asked, my tone polite enough since others could still hear.

I had remained by Max and Laureline for a bit longer after I stopped speaking to him, but had moved on after a while of not being in the conversation. I was relatively unperturbed by the lights vanishing, though was relieved when they returned. Once they do, I see the young Calore, Anya, standing nearby and move over to her.

"Quite an eventful night, wouldn't you say?"

I smiled a bit at the girl, trying to keep a brave face. "Yeah, you can say that..."

My eyebrows lifted at her request, but I nodded nonetheless. I hadn't expected friendly behavior after the obvious distaste she had expressed to me beforehand.

"It would be my pleasure, Princess Adara," I said, offering my arm.

"Are you. . . satisfied with the way the events transpired?" I ask, alluding to her sister and the Kingstrial.

I pressed my lips together at her question. No, I wanted to say, and to rant about how unfairly Adara was treated. Arranged marriages were just... Unsettling. But to keep a profession face, I shrugged a little, saying, "I trust my father's choice..."

-Adara-

I take his arm, my grip slight and tenuous as we made out ways through a set of double doors onto a terraced garden. Already, the moon was full in the sky and I could see guards moving about the perimeter of the palace far below our perch. Once we were out of view, I pulled my hand off of his arm, already disgusted with myself.

"I'm only doing this because I have to. Make no mistake. This is all my mother's doing," I said as I stared him down, my eyes as fierce as if I was staring down a Lakelander soldier on the front. I was not going to tolerate the snake more than I had to. My voice did not waver as so many's often did under a Merandus gaze. He would never see me weak if I could help it. I only had to play that part for the court but not for my dear new husband.

"Let's get something straight, if you or your sister ever crawl into my mind or anyone else in my family and I find out, I will burn you, king, or not."

-Maximillian-

I raced through the halls of the Hall of the Sun, my eyes focused on nothing but the marble floors in front of my feet. Most of the halls had already cleared of the older Silvers as they made their ways back to their rooms.

~Lunaria~
I frown a bit at her response, picking up on the subtle cues behind her shrug and trailing off as she finished her reply.

"Between us, I think it's unfair. As women here we practically have no say in what's going on, particularly true for your case being the ruling family and all," I mutter to her, keeping my voice low. It was dangerous to speak so openly and bluntly about a matter as serious as this, but I was always one to tread a bit dangerously in these situations. I knew my place, of course, but I often pushed the envelope of people's expectations.

At her response, I smiled a little bit. She gets it, I thought with relief, and I gave her response a subtle nod.

"Exactly. It's like we're property."

I nod along with the sentiment, supporting the thought. "It truly is a shame that something as sacred as marriage is decided for us. I understand the implications behind it, don't get me wrong, it's just a shame that someone as strong willed and inspiring as your sister has to have her choices made for her."
