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 …

*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-

"If only our parents saw that," I said as I buried my head in my hands, my previously styled hair falling over me. For the rest of the court, I could be strong, but I wasn't going to force myself to be with my little sister. At that moment, I was thankful she was not the first born, she always knew she was to marry someone else. For her, she always knew her future, and there was a comfort in that.

-Kyros-

"My father mentioned something about you possibly marrying Ophelia if neither of us wins this trial," I said as I barely flinched under the glare of the guard. It was a practiced line. My father had drilled it into me a million times while we were training. I had just messed it up on purpose. I was supposed to say if you didn't win, and the guard knew that. At the moment, I couldn't be as cold as my father wished me to be.

"Now, now, now... I didn't expect you to be so forward so quickly, dear Kyros," I said, head tilting at his words. A new smile formed on my mouth; this time, it was out of amusement rather than pure friendliness. I had not expected such straightforwardness from him, but the Silvers of the High Houses were known to be like this - kind and polite to your face, but the very kind words they spoke were laced with venom. I decided to follow his lead.

"You see, Kyros," I said, my hand dropping from my head to instead rest in my pocket. My voice lowers as my next words flow from my lips.

"As lovely as Ophelia is, I have no intentions of losing this and, therefore, no intentions of marrying her. The only lady I have my eyes set on is Adara, and that is because she comes with the throne," I say, the words icy but still covered with the facade of politeness as I spoke them.

- Amaris -

Man. People get really intense about this stuff, don't they? Can't say I blame them, though. A lot of pride rides on Kingstrial.

My jaw clenched with that last thought. As much as I hated the thought of arranged marriage, I still had to try my best – after all, the prize was more than a wife.

- Anya -

I stood, putting a hand on the small of my older sister's back. "I know it isn't fair, Adara... But you have to be your best our there."

-Adara-

"Yes," I mumbled at first before I continued in a stronger, more resolute tone. "I know I must." I stood as I finished speaking, the silk dress falling with me, the smooth material gracefully hugging my petite frame. The tiara on my head felt firmer than ever, its weight now a comfort.

"Well now, we should be meeting with your father in the atrium. It is almost time, but first, he has a few things to discuss with you all," Uncle Ferris said as he stood, adjusting his own crown. Upon his standing, the doors opened, and Sentinels marched in to escort us to the Atrium.

Their black cloaks were seeming to shine with deep colors of red and orange like flickering flames as they walked, black masks obscuring their faces.

-Kyros-

"Yes, well, Dorian, you do seem to have some fierce competition. It might be hard to whisper your way out of this," I said, my face as steely as I could make it. Inside, I wished for nothing more than to be done with these stupid practiced lines.

"Of course. What fun would it be without fierce competition?" I said, shooting him a winning smile once more.

"Best of luck to you, Kyros," I said before shifting my attention back on the others.

-Kyros-

"I'm sure I won't need it, but you might. I don't think the Princess will want some whisper that can crawl into her mind, but I suppose you can try to make up for it with your blond hair," I said as I finally relaxed my physical posture slightly now that the altercation was done. All the practiced lines were finished. My words could now at least be my own or as close to my own as I could make them.

Ilias-

I glance around at the other heirs cautiously, adjusting my white fabric-and-metal outfit similar to the typical outfit for Arvens at work.  Each of my competitors was a powerful opponent, the best their families had to offer, but I didn't intend on giving up this close to the event.  I had a task to do, and with my whole family watching my every move closely, I would do it well.

~Antonin~

"Well that went well," I said once Dorian left, nudging Kyros with my elbow, "I was expecting a lot more yelling."

Even though it hadn't broken out into a fight, that conversation was still laced with subtle anger. They both had polite tones but underneath their words was a bite that was to be expected out of them. The only thing that left me confused was how...rehearsed it all sounded.

-Kyros-

"Dorian Merandus would never raise his voice past conversational level. He's too careful for that," I said as I turned back to Antonin. And it was true, the whole of House Merandus was just as trained and attentive as my own House. We were feared families not only for our abilities, them because they could slip into minds and take out parts they didn't like or force people to do anything they wished, but for how we conducted ourselves at all times.

There were no slip-ups, no screaming matches, nothing less than perfection.

-Adara-

"Come on, Anya," I said as I began to walk with the sentinels to the atrium. There was no way I would confront this day, or my parents, alone. As I walked down the hallway outside of my rooms, I noticed how fresh everything looked with cut flowers dotting a few marble tabletops. Even in the Royal residential wing of the palace, the decor was often more relaxed and natural. By comparison, the more used hallways were done in marble and gold with grand art pieces of Calore lineage and Norta history. There was no need to impress anyone with the hallways outside of sleeping suites.

~Tristan~
I silently lean against a wall underneath the Spiral Garden, my eyes slowly drifting amongst my competitors, though not lingering long enough to draw attention. I noticed the pleasant conversation between two competitors, the barely contained tension between two others, the rest who were attempting to make themselves unnoticeable and blend in. I saw it all. I made no move to assert my dominance here. I knew my time would come. I would be patient and wait, I would observe and mirror the best I could. Then I would strike.

~Viktor~
I stretch out my arms and bounce on my feet lightly, my body bursting with adrenaline already. I hated this political bullshit and these dumb conversations everyone was having as they tried to get the edge over their competition. That was all pointless. When it came to abilities, whoever showed off the best would end up being the best. That's all it took.

~Lunaria~
I waltz up the steps to our box and gracefully make my way to my seat. My deep blue dgown flowed with each movement, sending ripples across the length of the fabric with each step. It was form-fitting at the top and fanning out behind me in a train though embedding a bit of my ability and water into the fabric allowed me to move relatively easily while also showing off a bit at the same time. I ease myself into a seat and brush my cascading, auburn locks over my shoulder. To complete my outfit I donned a sapphire blue necklace and hoop earrings crafted out of constantly flowing water that I controlled with my ability as well. All in all, a satisfactory representation of House Osanos, especially given the white gown my cousin, Aurelia, wore.

~Ophelia~
I tap the edge of my chair as I gaze down at the Spiral Garden, anxiously awaiting the event to start. While my face and body portrayed nothing but icy stillness, internally I was a mess. Having Kyros compete put me on edge; he was never the best at learning his abilities and there would most likely be consequences to pay if he performed poorly. My hands clench in front of me, the silver plates that fluidly made up my dress tensing slightly and letting out the smallest metallic squeak as I force myself to relax. Kyros would be fine, I had faith in him.
