    RP - Night of Literature and Wine (and Ice Cream!)

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Mar 08, 2015 2:24 pm

    Welcome to The Golden Masque!

    For the literature reading event, the Golden Masque's spherical holofield has been deactivated. In its stead, the central platform has been extended, with tasteful plum and burgandy-colored curtains hanging around its edge, converting the area into a lounge-like space with lots of comfortable chairs surrounding a raised platform with a plush chair or podium depending on the preferences of the reader. There is a bar to one side of the platform serving a range of Amarrian wines and other alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and a special serving station for Bel's Splendid Ice Cream Parlour.  The regular seating area has been cordoned off for the duration of the event, and aside from selected station officials and other invited parties, the Masque has been closed to general traffic.  There is warm and inviting lighting. Waitstaff make their way throughout with a mix of hors d'oeuvres and also retrieve empty glasses. Pleasant music is being played by a string ensemble on the other side of the platform, opposite the temporary bar.

    [ 2015.03.07 21:44:00 ] Ian Blackthorn > /emote steps inside quietly looking around as he knew he was early but went to grab a glass of wine anyway, spending a few minutes listening to the music as he finds a seat settling in quietly.
    [ 2015.03.07 22:47:34 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote walks in wearing outfit. She looks around and has a vague sense of recognition at the surroundings.

    [ 2015.03.07 22:51:39 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote enters wesring her typical outfit.  She stands idly by the doorway, not totally entering, right hand crossing her chest and rubbing her left arm.  After a short while she enters and finds a quiet dark seat. >

    [ 2015.03.07 22:54:17 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote looks around, trying to get accustomed to the location
    [ 2015.03.07 22:55:04 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote pulls out her tablet and taps something on it.  She speaks softly into the tablet.  Taps something.  Taps something else and puts her ear close to it.  She nods.  A few more taps and she resumes trying to be unnoticed.>
    [ 2015.03.07 22:55:50 ] Thal Vadam > /emote orders a glass of iced tea
    [ 2015.03.07 22:55:56 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote sips his wine looking around the room with a half smile

    [ 2015.03.07 22:56:50 ] Literia > /emote enters the Masque wearing outfit her hair done into a neat tight bun. She glances around, walking up to a table and having a seat.  She orders a glass of white wine.

    [ 2015.03.07 22:58:10 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote enters in her usual white cassock and gold sash.  A golden Amarr symbol hangs on a heavy chain around her neck.  Lyse takes a moment to look about and get her bearings.

    [ 2015.03.07 22:58:57 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote grins, "Thanks! I got dragged along...Vince said I couldn't sit in my room brooding."
    [ 2015.03.07 22:59:25 ] Literia > /emote glances over to Vince with a soft smile "Thank you Vince, looking sharp as ever."  She nods to Lasa "Well, I am glad you did, if you want no one is joining me, you two can sit here."
    [ 2015.03.07 22:59:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances about to see who is here.  She smooths her dress unconciously.
    [ 2015.03.07 22:59:42 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote smiles, "Thanks." She offers a small wave to Luna.
    [ 2015.03.07 22:59:55 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote heads over to Thal "Classiarii.  Good to see a familiar face."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:00:30 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote walks over to Vincent. She's a bit tentative as she approaches.

    [ 2015.03.07 23:02:00 ] Lyn Farel > /emote slips in quietly and wanders in the back, before taking a seat, glancing curiously at the scene, not really knowing what to expect.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:02:05 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote tilts her head, and smiles at Jenn, "Hi."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:02:26 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote keeps her attention on Vincent, "I'm doing okay. Are we... good? About what I said, on the IGS."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:02:39 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote bites her lip as she waits for Vincent's response.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:02:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sighs with relief as she sees Thal.  She continues to survey the room

    [ 2015.03.07 23:04:31 ] Thal Vadam > "By all means" He gestures to the seat across from him
    [ 2015.03.07 23:04:40 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote nods and smiles. "Good. I don't take our friendship for granted."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:04:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote goes over to the bar and grabs a glass of wine.  She makes her way over to the microphone. "Do enjoy yourself and settle in. we'll be starting in 10 minutes or so"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:05:48 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote turns and smiles to Literia. "Hello, Literia. How are you doing?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:05:52 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote smiles at Luna, raising his glass in half salute
    [ 2015.03.07 23:05:52 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote orders a glass of wine, "I haven't been in here since the alliance tournament."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:06:24 ] Vincent Pryce > Neither do I. I just wantedto scare the fledgeling a bit, becasue if someone doesn't he will eventually piss off someone who will do some serious damage.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:06:25 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote walks in, as far as can be discerned in moderate to good spirits and freshly cleaned and dressed having just been decanted. Noting the impending start of reading he decides to approach a table with a familiar face and luckily positioned in the ba...
    [ 2015.03.07 23:06:38 ] Literia > /emote sips on her glass of white wine.  "I am well thank you.  I hope you are as well?  I love your outfit Jennifer."

    [ 2015.03.07 23:07:12 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote takes a seat, though her gaze is mostly directed to all the unknown persons.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:07:20 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote blushes, "Thank you. Your dress is fantastic. I'm hanging in there."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:07:29 ] Thal Vadam > /emote looks at a piece of paper

    [ 2015.03.07 23:09:43 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote looks between Lasairiona and Vincent. "Is there anybody you don't know, Vince?"

    [ 2015.03.07 23:10:09 ] Literia > /emote takes a seat the table.  She rests her glass of wine on the table.

    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:17 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods to Ibrahim "Please."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at her watch.  She looks to see if the 'ice cream' lady is here yet.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:33 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote nods "Very! Also concerning with the information being presented on the nature of wormholes but well worth the trip"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:36 ] Bel Boma > /emote stands up, because she was apparently crouched behind her serving station the entire time. Don't question her.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:39 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote takes the seat, happy to be at a social event that does not encumber him with too much actual socializing.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:11:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods satisfied, at Reinheart or Bel is not clear.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:12:01 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I don't think we've actually been formally introduced?" she says to Ibrahim.

    [ 2015.03.07 23:12:24 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote slips in, hopeing no one will notice he is slightly late, but not yet fashionably so, and tucks himself away at the back, not taking a seat.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:12:40 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote makes her way over to a seat in the corner

    [ 2015.03.07 23:12:47 ] Arline Kley > /emote turns up, as ever to these events, in her full dress uniform, a sheathed sword at her side somewhat reluctantly handed over to the security personnel with some words of "encouragement" to keep it in good order *
    [ 2015.03.07 23:12:54 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > "No. I don't think. Lord Ibrahim, Your Excellency. I was at the service last night. Very moving."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:15 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Ah, yes.  Thank you." she smiles.  "A pleasure to formally meet you, your lordship."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:29 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > "Likewise."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way back to the podium. She clear her thoat politely. "Thank you all for coming.  This is a chance for some of the works to get a public airing that were awarded prizes at my recent contest.  And for you all to have a pleasant evening."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:34 ] Zenariae > /emote enters, late, dressed smartly in a suit and quiety takes a seat at the back
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:42 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I was happy to see so many Faithful there." she cuts off as Luna starts.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:13:54 ] Bel Boma > /emote pulls a set of spoons and forks out from under her serving station and sets them on top. She looks up to watch Luna.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:14:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "if you'd like to read all of them, they can be found here http://backstage.eve-inspiracy.com/index.php?board=6.0
    [ 2015.03.07 23:14:18 ] Literia > /emote looks up to listen to Luna, sipping on her wine.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:14:40 ] Arline Kley > /emote picks up a drink from the bar, watching the event from there *
    [ 2015.03.07 23:14:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We have four readings today.  Immortal Death by Raphael Ordo is the first.  As he is unavoidable detained, I offered to read for him.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:15:30 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote looks over at Luna, listening curiously.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:15:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances down at her podium and begins to read in a clear voice:  Future time will tell if it ever ended, As prophesized in the beginning, when He ascended.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:15:53 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote enters quietly,
    [ 2015.03.07 23:15:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Shall we follow the Wind,Or even aspire to become the Idama,And leave the Forge at such a wim?
    [ 2015.03.07 23:15:56 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote heads towards the bar, after taking a long look at those present, and determining that as usual alcohol is necessary. He takes a glass of wine before turning back around to listen.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:16:26 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote waves to Karmilla as he spots her
    [ 2015.03.07 23:16:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Should we acknowledge His heavenly ties, Stand praying for our souls before all of us dies,Or even succumb to the lies of the seven tribes?
    [ 2015.03.07 23:16:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Thousands of lives depend upon our choices,Yet we cast aside their fate in favour of more resources.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:16:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Even if we never feel torn by our actions, Know of those that mourn the fractions.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:17:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > When we die in the far reaches of cold space,Do you always have the courage to look into your new face
    [ 2015.03.07 23:17:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pauses.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:17:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As that darkness beckons, does the soul wander?If so, your next vessel, sacred it will be no longer.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:17:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Banished we are from fleshless peace,Bound to serve our eternal decrees
    [ 2015.03.07 23:17:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As we continue to open our new eyes, Our collective suffering never dies.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:18:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks up.  I thought it was an evocative work from his point of view...
    [ 2015.03.07 23:19:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We'll take a break for a moment."  She smiles faintly.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:19:12 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote nods and claps politely
    [ 2015.03.07 23:19:15 ] Literia > /emote claps

    [ 2015.03.07 23:19:34 ] Bel Boma > /emote claps with enthusiasm!
    [ 2015.03.07 23:19:53 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote slinks in fashionably late wearing a black suit and a pair of jackboots. She sneaks towards an empty booth silently.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:20:31 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote claps politely and smiles at Karm, "Hey!"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:20:32 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote moves in quietly and takes a seat in an empty booth unobtrusively.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:20:54 ] Literia > /emote smiles up to Karmilla, she stands up straightening her outfit.  She smiles brightly "Hey, take a seat and join us."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:21:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote steps to the side to get another glass of wine.  She makes her way over to Thal.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:21:13 ] Jennifer Starfall > Hiya, Karmilla.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:21:30 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote smiles. "Hello, sorry I'm late."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:21:44 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote smiles softly to Karm and kisses her "Glad you could make it."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:21:51 ] Thal Vadam > /emote sips his tea
    [ 2015.03.07 23:22:00 ] Literia > Glad you could make it too Karm.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:22:38 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote takes a mouthful of wine and swallows, glancing around again.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:22:49 ] Arline Kley > /emote drains her first drink and shakes her glass, and asking for a double of the same *
    [ 2015.03.07 23:22:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtsies to Alizebath and Thal. "I am glad you two could come."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:17 ] Thal Vadam > /emote bows his head "It is an honor Luna"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:17 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods to Lunarisse as she approaches the table.  :"Blessings, child.  Who did you say wrote that?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:17 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote orders a glass of ice-water and looks around the crowd.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:26 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote is a potted plant.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:28 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote sips her wine. "How are you, Karmilla?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Raphael Ordo, he is with the PIE alliance."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:23:58 ] Arline Kley > /emote her ears perk at hearing of PIE, before she settles back into her drink *
    [ 2015.03.07 23:24:00 ] Zenariae > /emote sits quietly at her seat, observing the gathering.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:24:01 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote takes a short walk over to the station Bel is attending, "So, ice cream at a reading session? Very new age."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:24:12 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote spots Zena and waves, smiling brightly.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:24:31 ] Bel Boma > /emote checks under her serving station. "Miss Aspenstar suggested it. It sounded like a good idea at the time."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:24:56 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods and smiles "Well, it was very good.  Both the writing and the reading."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:14 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote smiles, "A bit lonely, no?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:18 ] Bel Boma > /emote looks up. A light blush is spread across her cheeks. "But my ice cream doesn't seem classy enough to match the venue."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:27 ] Karmilla Strife > I'm exhausted Jennifer. Jamyl started crawling and she gets into almost as much trouble than her father.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:29 ] Bel Boma > So far, yes.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:39 ] Lord Kailethre > Don't worry neither am I. I'd like a cone of vanilla, please.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:45 ] Zenariae > /emote notices something waving, like a flag or is it a hand in the distance? It alerts her attention and she quietly moves over to join  Lasairiona Raske with a smile.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:54 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote is wearing an uncharacteristically warm smile.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:56 ] Literia > /emote giggles at Karm's comment.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:25:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.  She glances at Thal "Are you ready to read yours, Templar? I will introduce you."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:26:20 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote giggles.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:26:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote stands "I am Luna"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:26:46 ] Jennifer Starfall > Better keep her away from the warp disruptors, then.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:26:54 ] Bel Boma > /emote reaches under her station. She pulls out a snack size container of ice cream. "No cones or anything for today, sorry."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:27:02 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote smiles.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:27:15 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote sighs, "Oh well, I'll have it as is."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:27:17 ] Bel Boma > /emote offers Kaile the tiny container.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:27:34 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote giggles at Karm's comment, "Ah yes....try having twin boys that crawl...that's a challenge. Mine are walking now too. Fast little things."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:27:41 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote takes the container, and still unsure of where to sit, begins appraising the crowd again.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:28:15 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote greets Zena, "Hey! Nice to see you again."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:29:04 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote lookd to Ibrahim "Did you want a drink?  I was going to get some wine."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:29:27 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote smiles at Zenariae. "Hello, M. Havraan."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:29:41 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > "Oh, no, thank you though. I'm alright."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:30:04 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Vince. "Could you imagine twins?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:30:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way to the podium.  She glances to make sure Thal is following.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:30:50 ] Zenariae > /emote bows "Hello Ms Lasa" and takes a seat near her. "Um how are you?" she asks quietly.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:30:58 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods and heads over to get a glass of a dessert white before sitting back down.  "Shame I was not certified for the pod before this contest was held, I could have submitted a few of my sermons."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:15 ] Literia > /emote smiles as she sips on her wine.  She glances to Vince with Karms comment to see his reaction.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:22 ] Thal Vadam > /emote follows Luna, his robes flowing as he walks
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am pleased to announce that the DUST winner was able to attend tonight.  I'd like to introduce Templar Vadam of the Praetorian Classiarii"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:28 ] Bel Boma > I'm sure either her Excellency or the doctor wouldn't mind chatting with you.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:37 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:43 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote laughs and then looks at Zena, "I've been better. My sister wants to have a memorial service for Eric. She thinks it will bring closure."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances about and gives Thal an encouragig smile.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:52 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote laughs "I could. And the lack of sleep to come with it."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:31:59 ] Bel Boma > /emote shuts her mouth and pays attention to Luna and Thal.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:32:13 ] Lasairiona Raske > Nannies are incredibly helpful
    [ 2015.03.07 23:32:16 ] Literia > /emote turns her attention to Luna and Thal.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:32:24 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote startled at the unexpected voice, looks around with an odd expression, before paying attention to Luna and Thal.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:33:02 ] Zenariae > /emote seems taken aback at the mention of Eric. She'd known he was missing but memorial service "Oh um..I'm s-sorry Ms Lasa..."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:33:17 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps up to the podium "greetings ladies and gentleman. tonight i shall be reading my poem, Her Proud Sons"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:33:37 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote presses her lips together, "Oh, I'm sorry....we haven't seen each other since....yes....there was news."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:34:15 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote sets her wine down and leans back to listen.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:34:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote steps to the side and stands next to the ice cream table.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:34:39 ] Zenariae > /emote tries to give Lasa a little hug "I didn't know...um..can I help you in any way um?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:35:03 ] Bel Boma > /emote shoots Luna a strained smile.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:35:24 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote shakes her head, "No...my sister is organizing it all...I just hope you come along...."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:35:42 ] Thal Vadam > /emote clears his throat "From ancient Athra, the Empress commands Her Proud Sons. From her great legions these warriors are forged, Her Proud Sons. No fear they know, Praetoriani Classiarii, Her...
    [ 2015.03.07 23:36:07 ] Zenariae > /emote nods and looks at her compassionately "I'll certainly attend."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:36:35 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote murmurs softly, "Thank you."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:36:41 ] Thal Vadam > Proud Sons. All Empire's foes, they march against all. Her Proud Sons." He pauses
    [ 2015.03.07 23:36:51 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote listens in relative silence.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:38:24 ] Thal Vadam > "Warrior merit, unbreakable spirit, Classiarii. Supreme defenders, unchallenged in battle. Classiarii. Courage and Honor, Empress and Sefrim. Classiarii"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:38:56 ] Thal Vadam > /emote steps down from the podium and bows
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:04 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote claps.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:12 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:15 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote claps lightly.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:18 ] Bel Boma > /emote claps loudly!
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:19 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote claps.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:25 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:32 ] Literia > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.07 23:39:50 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote claps for Thal's poetry
    [ 2015.03.07 23:40:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > emote claps and smiles as she makes her way back up the podium "Thank you Templar!"  She pauses. "We'll take another 10 minute break before Ms. Ymladris does her reading."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:40:31 ] Thal Vadam > /emote walks back to Lyse and Ibrahim's table
    [ 2015.03.07 23:40:40 ] Zenariae > /emote patters her hands together quietly and says to Lasa "That sounded very heroic, I'm not sure I follow it though..."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:40:45 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote turns to Bel, "Now is your time to shine."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:40:46 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote smiles to Thal.  "Well read."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns to the ice cream table "Could I have a vanilla sundae with a cherry on top? " She winks at Bel.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:09 ] Thal Vadam > /emote takes a seat "Thank you"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:16 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote turns her attention back to Lasairiona.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:27 ] Lord Kailethre > A most excellent flavour choice, Miss Aspenstar.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:32 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > "Yes, well done Thal."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:32 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote quickly re-checks her pad, to make sure she set up things for the upcoming reading
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:38 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote nods, "Yes, it was very....heroic."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:57 ] Bel Boma > /emote reaches under the counter and pulls out a little container of vanilla. "I only brought these little things, because they're easy to store and transport, buuut..."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:41:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles softly "Thank you Lord Kailethre"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:02 ] Thal Vadam > /emote smiles and sips his tea
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:16 ] Literia > /emote purses her lips slightly, and sighs, sipping on her wine.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:22 ] Lord Kailethre > Bel keeps telling me that vanilla is one of her most expensive, but everyone else says it tastes so boring.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:22 ] Bel Boma > /emote digs around some more. She finds a cherry! "I did bring these, just in case."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:23 ] Jennifer Starfall > These things are sooo much easier from the audience.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wonderful!"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:36 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote lightly chuckles, "I guess I am just a boring person."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:39 ] Literia > I couldnt imagine going up there.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:42:49 ] Lasairiona Raske > Public speaking is much the same as performing onstage.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:43:21 ] Literia > /emote chuckles quietly "I guess thats why I dont perform on stage either."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:43:34 ] Bel Boma > I actually enjoy my vanilla, just because you can do so much with it.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:43:43 ] Lasairiona Raske > Although, when you're playing music, it's easier to lose yourself in the song. You don't pay much attention.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:43:44 ] Bel Boma > It's the bread of ice cream flavors.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:43:55 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote looks down, "Like mix it with alcohol..."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:44:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes, it is very versatile. I use it with shakes and smoothies and even some desserts!"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:44:25 ] Jennifer Starfall > I just compared it to being first in on a strike, and remembered that one of the audience was armed.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:44:33 ] Bel Boma > /emote rolls her eyes. "I mean, I understand the appeal of mixing ice cream with alcohol, but I prefer to keep the two separate, myself."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:44:51 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote quietly slips in, glancing about as he enters to see who else is about.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:44:56 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote beams, "Clearly I am not that boring."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:45:17 ] Bel Boma > /emote sighs wistfully. "Vanilla ice cream on top of apple tartes. Mmmm."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:46:17 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I shall go greet someone, please save my seat."  Lyse stands and heads for Jennifer Starfall and anyone else that might be near her.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:46:37 ] Lasairiona Raske > Oh goodness. There's Esna. I haven't seen him in ages.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:15 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote sees Alizebeth heading towards her and quickly stands up from her chair to bow politely. "Good evening, your grace."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:45 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "And to you, Jennifer.  Please to meet you in person."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:46 ] Bel Boma > /emote squints up at the ceiling. Her face turns an interesting shade of red. She mumbles some horrifying profanities under her breath.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:51 ] Alizebeth Amalath > (pleased)
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods and smiles at Bel. "my pardon, I need to speak to the next... err?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:47:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Bel.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:48:20 ] Bel Boma > /emote rubs angrily at her eyes. Is that water on her face? "I'm sorry, what?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:48:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > What's wrong, Ms. Boma?
    [ 2015.03.07 23:49:10 ] Lord Kailethre > B-bel?
    [ 2015.03.07 23:49:17 ] Bel Boma > My... My ex. That man!
    [ 2015.03.07 23:49:40 ] Jennifer Starfall > How have you enjoyed the event so far?
    [ 2015.03.07 23:50:21 ] Literia > /emote quietly sips on her wine waiting for the next reading.  She looks up to Jennifer and the new arrival at the table.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:50:58 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote cocks his head to the side, "I don't understand?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:51:23 ] Bel Boma > /emote forces a smile onto her lips. "I'm sorry, Miss Aspenstar. I'm afraid I must leave." The smile is less than convincing.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:51:24 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I confess it's a little bit out of my experience.  People from all over, not just Imperials.  It's illuminating." She adds with a wry grin "It's good to see a face I recoginze.  Even if we've only met briefly."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:51:39 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote starts over towards Lasa, waving when he is close enough > Good evening, Lasa!
    [ 2015.03.07 23:51:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote murmers with a look of concern "do what you must. I am sure one of the bar tenders can take over here:
    [ 2015.03.07 23:51:54 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote grins and jumps up, giving him a big hug, "How are you?"
    [ 2015.03.07 23:52:15 ] Bel Boma > /emote offers Luna a stiff bow. "Thank you. I will make this up to you."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:52:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply gives Bel an encouraging smile as she makes her way hurriedly to Jandice, realizing she is off schedule.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:52:38 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote oofs softly, but warmly hugs her back > Quite good. Making a life for myself out in the unsettled reaches of space.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:52:41 ] Bel Boma > /emote leaves the venue.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:53:08 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote leans back, "I'm so glad to see you."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:53:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans over to Jandice "Are you ready Ms. Ymladris?"  She smiles.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:53:36 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote bows> I am Miss Aspenstar
    [ 2015.03.07 23:53:43 ] Jennifer Starfall > I don't think people give enough credit to how much different cultures have in common.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:54:27 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Mind if I join you?  I'd like you to expand on that after the reading."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way to the podium and clears her throat. "I am pleased to introduce Jandice Ymladris."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:12 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote makes her way to the stage
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:17 ] Zenariae > /emote listens attentively
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:19 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote looks up at the podium, still sipping at his water.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "She has been a reporter of many events in the last two years in the Cluster and is oneof our non fiction winners."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Jandice and steps to the side.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:28 ] Literia > /emote turns her attention towards the stage.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:28 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote sighs, now realising yet again, he has noone he knows to speak with.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:29 ] Esna Pitoojee > The same; ah, but I see we are continuing? *Esna releases Lasa and slides into ha seat.*
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:32 ] Jennifer Starfall > Why don't I join you? I haven't had a chance to say hello to Templar Vadam or Lord Tash-Murkon yet.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:55:34 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote moves back to her seat, murmuring to Esna, "I have something to tell you later."
    [ 2015.03.07 23:56:11 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods "That works as well."  she turns and heads back over to Thal and Ibrahim, taking back her seat
    [ 2015.03.07 23:56:29 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote bows to the crowd before she begins > greetings, it's an honour to read an excert from my non-fiction work for you.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:56:30 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote takes her wine and sits with Alizebeth.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:56:48 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote silently nods to Lasa, then looks back to Jandice.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:57:15 ] Jandice Ymladris > The piece I sent in was  Wormholes, shattered dreams & lost hopes, which featured a more poetic approach then usual to my articles
    [ 2015.03.07 23:57:28 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote clears her throat before she begins
    [ 2015.03.07 23:57:42 ] Jandice Ymladris > Wormhole systems trigger a primal need in many, the need to explore the unknown, to boldly go where none have gone before.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:57:58 ] Jandice Ymladris > To be the first to go there, the first to see that asteroid, the first to walk on this moon, the first to settle on that planet, to be among the first....
    [ 2015.03.07 23:58:27 ] Jandice Ymladris > Wormhole systems also contain alot of artifacts, advanced technology, rare materials and strange enemies.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:58:46 ] Jandice Ymladris > All this attracts a varied crowd of capsuleers who want to chase their dreams of wealth and hopes of renown in this strange place.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:59:04 ] Jandice Ymladris > Some succeed beyond their wildest dreams and highest hopes, becoming wealthier than they could imagine.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:59:30 ] Jandice Ymladris > But for many.... it's the same old tale... their dreams turn out barren, their hopes; fruitless.
    [ 2015.03.07 23:59:54 ] Jandice Ymladris > So next time any of you fly to the wormhole systems of Anoikis and find a lone starbase or a derelict ship, glowing under the eerie light of distant and unknown stars,
    [ 2015.03.08 00:00:12 ] Jandice Ymladris > pay homage to those who were before you, and then left, leaving behind their belongings along with their forgotten dreams and demolished hopes...
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:00 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote bows once again before the crowd > I hope you enjoyed this piece of mine, I like to thank Miss Aspenstar for this opportunity
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:11 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote claps, smiling.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles and claps warmly.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:16 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote claps enthusiastically
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:22 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote claps.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:23 ] Literia > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:25 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote claps.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:33 ] Zenariae > /emote applauds with enthusiasm
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:35 ] Thal Vadam > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:37 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote joins in the applause.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:37 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote smiles thoughtfully as she applauds.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:01:44 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote simply looks thoughtful.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:02:18 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote considers her words for several long moments, and then quietly nods, applauding as well.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:02:45 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote blushes > thank you for your enthousiasm, it's wonderful to know you enjoyed it.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:03:11 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote slowly goes back off stage

    2015.03.08 00:03:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote returns to the podium "we'll take one last brief break before the final reading of the night. Enjoy!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:03:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way over to Laisa
    [ 2015.03.08 00:04:05 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote glances up and smiles.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:04:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How are you Lasairiona? am glad you could make it"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:05:03 ] Lasairiona Raske > Thank you. I've been better, I suppose. It's good for me to get out.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:05:13 ] Literia > /emote smiles at Luna as she is sitting at the same table.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:05:14 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote nods to Luna warmly as she approaches.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:05:22 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "So, Jennifer, you know Lord Ibrahim Tash-Murkon and Classairii Vadam?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:05:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hello Literia, Lord pitojee"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:06:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I hope each of you are enjoying yourself" She looks at laisa although she is addressing all 3.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:06:22 ] Literia > Hello Mrs Daphiti. I am thank you.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:06:30 ] Lasairiona Raske > Yes, ti does take my mind off everything. Although, it feels as if my world is a bit of a mess.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:06:44 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote smiles to Luna asshe arives.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:06:57 ] Jennifer Starfall > Yes, we've spoken on occaision.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:07:31 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote moves to refill his glass with some ice-water, a nod to Lunarisse as she easily moves about the crowd.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:07:39 ] Esna Pitoojee > Quite a bit, although I'm afraid I was only able to arrive relatively late.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:07:41 ] Jennifer Starfall > How are you both, my lord, Templar?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:07:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well, it will take time." she studies Laisai unsure of what else to say.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:21 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote looks down at her hands, "Ithi wants to have a memorial service for him."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:22 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > "Yes, thank you. I hope you're well."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:37 ] Jennifer Starfall > I'm doing okay, my lord.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eye's soften "It's confirmed then?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Let me know when the service is."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:08:56 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote bites her lower lip, "They said there were no survivors."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:09:00 ] Lasairiona Raske > I will.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:09:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She sighs. "Well... enjoy the company tonight. it can only do you some good."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:09:46 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote lets out a shaky breath, "I will. Thank you."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:10:06 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote glances over towards Lasa, looking concerned.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:10:22 ] Jennifer Starfall > Might I ask what you thought of Ms. Ymladris' piece, your grace?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:10:38 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote returns from a very very long trip to the bathroom, she probably got lost or something. She heads back to her dark corner and sits down, picking up her tablet. >
    [ 2015.03.08 00:10:44 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote looks over to Esna, "It's what I wanted to tell you....there was an accident, it seems."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:11:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote steps to the side "My Pardon, I need to prepare my notes for the last one." She squeezes Laisai's arm in encouragement as she steps aside.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:11:40 ] Zenariae > /emote has been sitting quietly, "Can I get you a water or something Ms Lasa?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:12:00 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote nods fractionally, listening.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:12:15 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Well. It was well written, redolent, but I found it . . . a bit gloom at the end. If that was her goal with the piece, then she succeeded."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:12:46 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote shakes her head, "No...." She looks back at Esna, "Eric was with his brother on business....there was an explosion. They missed their check in point prior to that. There were searchs, but no trace...." She trails off.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:13:05 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:13:46 ] Jennifer Starfall > I think some people consider the Anoikis to be some kind of guarantee of success or riches.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:14:10 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote squeezes his eyes shut, nodding.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:14:14 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "As I've never been to unknown space, nor do I have much expeience with the capsuleer mindset, I am hesitant to judge."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:14:54 ] Lasairiona Raske > I...I went there today....I had to see for myself. It's a crater.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:15:13 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "If there is one thing that I have learned in life it is that nothing except the Almighty God is guarenteed."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:00 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote looks thoughtful, "That's a comforting sentiment."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:05 ] Esna Pitoojee > I'm sorry... is there anything I may do for you, Lasa?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way baxck up to the podium. She smiles lightly. "Thank you all for coming. We have one last reading tonight."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:28 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote returns to his seat and turns his eyes on the podium once more.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sir Shutaq has also been unavoidably detained. The hazards of being in a military organization, but I'd like to read his winning entry "Son, my Sun!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:49 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote grins to herself, she speaks softly and to no one. > Well. . . at least I didn't miss them all.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:16:56 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote shakes her head, "No, thank you. Ithi is organizing a memorial...." She glances up as Luna speaks.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:17:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances down at her notes. She takes a quick sip of her wine.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:17:31 ] Zenariae > /emote turns her attention to the podium
    [ 2015.03.08 00:17:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote speaks brightly and clearly with a steady pace as she recites
    [ 2015.03.08 00:17:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Son, my Sun! Peer in brilliance though you are,Heavenly globes bare no witness to thee,Vast in girth and gaze afar, See not where innocent splendor may be."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:17:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Only the infinite eye of God, Beholds thy glories and proclaims:Thee, my son, Are truth and solace, Joy and redemptionAll mankind rejoice, Hearing this small voice!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:18:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote she smiles to herself, then continues
    [ 2015.03.08 00:18:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yet cold and infinite are the heavens, My child’s cry lost in din and chaosThat cruel crush of a trillion helpless wails. O doth man suffer! Aid is rent from me!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:18:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "My hands are dragged away from thee, my son, To be sullied with the blood of poor fools, Misled by lies and given cruel intent. War is upon us! Fathers to duty!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:19:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Treacherous flames leap from the hearth anew, Betrayers turned from God upon thy crib, To be turned back by thy love-bearing guard. Darkness shall retreat! Mothers to thy home!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:19:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "One babe a star shall not glimpse, live or die, A million blind and a billion ignored, Yet God sees our sin and withholds black fire, Despite murder and heresy abhorred."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:19:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "O, meek boy in my arms, burden of men, I shall see your life before mine is done, Strength shall be yours and man you shall defend, Proclaiming to heaven, you Sun my Son!"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:20:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks up. "I thought the man he was and his love of his child really shone through that one."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles lightly "that's all for tonight. Thank you for coming."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:30 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote glances around, "I'm going to have to go." She gets up, bending her head and hurrying out, clearly upset by the poem.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:30 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote claps
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:36 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote claps.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:39 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote stands up and applauds.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:44 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote sits back in quiet contemplation.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:49 ] Jandice Ymladris > /emote applauds
    [ 2015.03.08 00:21:56 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote claps unethustiastically.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:22:39 ] Literia > /emote slowly Claps and looks back for Lasa, watching her leave with a concerned look on her face.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:22:59 ] Zenariae > /emote offers quiet applause, thoughtful.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:23:10 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote gives hearty applause
    [ 2015.03.08 00:23:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances as she sees Lasai leave. She continuesl "While the event is 'over' we have it for the night. You are welcome to remain and socialize as you wish"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:23:23 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote applauds softly and politely. >
    [ 2015.03.08 00:23:23 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote looks after Lasa as well - then back to Literia, frowning softly.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:23:38 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote sits down and glances at Alizabeth.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:24:13 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote slowly taps her index finger to her chin.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:24:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtseys slightly and makes her way to the back where she sees Veikitamo Gesakaarin .
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:13 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote stands and nods to Thal, Alizebeth, and Jennifer, "Thank you all very much for your company. I'm afraid I'm needed elsewhere."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:16 ] Reinheart Novan > /emote suddenly stands and walks briskly from the room tapping at a data pad as he does so
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:30 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote scoots over to speak softly to Literia > Do you know if she will be alright?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:32 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote turns to Lit and Karm "I'll make sure she's alright and that she arrives back at the Elysion."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:33 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote stands a bit "Blessings, your lordship."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:39 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote stands and gives Ibrahim a bow. "Fly safe, Lord Tash-Murkon."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:51 ] Vincent Pryce > /emote bows and makes his exit.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:25:56 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote raises her glass of vodka to Lunarisses with a smile as she approaches her table, "Hello Lady Aspenstar, thank you for the evening."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:26:03 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote tries to continue to remain invisble as the hustle and bustle dies down. >
    [ 2015.03.08 00:26:13 ] Ibrahim Tash-Murkon > /emote politely bows to the table, "Have a good evening." He departs.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:26:19 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote sits back down.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:26:32 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote takes another little tub of ice cream, before taking a nearby seat.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:26:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am glad you seemed to have enjoyed." She gives a polite smile. "Can I have a seat?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:27:05 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "By all means, feel free."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:28:11 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "So, while I was preparing for certification, all of my reading and research had led me to believe that there was no little amount of animosity to the Empire, but most of the people I have met seem quite respectful of our traditions and customs."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:28:40 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote taps her tablet a few times, the slides it away. She tries to leave quietly, and without fanfare. >
    [ 2015.03.08 00:28:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slides in. "It has been some time.." She frowns trying to remember when she last saw Veik.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:29:21 ] Jennifer Starfall > That might be dependent on what circles you've socialized in.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:29:40 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Not many." Lyse admits.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:29:47 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "It has been, yes. I assure you, though on no account of the pleasure of your company."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:30:03 ] Literia > /emote orders another glass of white wine.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:30:43 ] Lisa Ouyano > /emote exits. >
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:05 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote quietly rises and wanders over to join Alizabeth.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:14 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote continues to listen quietly after Lasa and Vince have left.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:20 ] Jennifer Starfall > For example, those who manage The Good Word, make an effort to maintain a certain environment. However, I'm sure if you spent time on The Summit, or other more general channels, you'd encounter animosity.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:36 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote adds quickly, "Not that I'm advocating that you should."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head at Veik. "What is this 'Black parab;e
    [ 2015.03.08 00:31:57 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote glances up at Esna, "Good evening, Mr. Pitojee."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:32:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > group you've founded?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:32:04 ] Zenariae > /emote orders herself a water with ice and quietly watches the crowd, people moving about under the spell of recently recited powerful words.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:32:21 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote quietly eats his ice cream from the tub.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:32:27 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Well, I shall have to start making it a point to go there then." She smiles to Jennifer. "There is no where that the Light of God does not shine." She stands and turns to Esna "Blessings, your lordship."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:32:50 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles, "I didn't found the Parable, Lunarisse, Hevaima did."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:33:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see. In all events.." she blinks. "You are back with Pyre?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:33:06 ] Literia > /emote accepts her second glass of wine
    [ 2015.03.08 00:33:24 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote looks surprised, "Lordship?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:33:59 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "Indeed I am."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:34:08 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote remains in his seat watching the crowd sipping at his water with an easy smile.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:34:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I hope it is not too difficult a transition." She sips her wine which she carried with her.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:35:01 ] Esna Pitoojee > Reverend Amalath, good evening! You have been well, I hope?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:35:06 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Literia. "I'm surprised you didn't do a reading."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:36:31 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote smiles. "Quite well. Thank you. We missed you at the service the other day though."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:37:29 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote takes a sip of her vodka, "Not hard at all. I'm retired and collecting my pension from the CFU and KK. I can focus on things with so much less stress. It's a good life for an old woman like me."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:37:29 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote nods > Unfortunately, my schedule can become... demanding, at best. Very often it means I cannot be places where I really rather wish I could attend.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:38:33 ] Literia > /emote sips on her glass of wine, fidgetting in her chair a bit.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:38:49 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I quite understand. You know Jennifer Starfall?" Lyse gestures to the Caldari.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:40:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "I wouldn't consider yourself old."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:40:20 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote looks to Jennifer, smiling softly > We have spoken over channels at times, but I do not think I have ever met her directly. Hello, Ms. Starfall.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:40:38 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote laughs and shakes her head, "My dear I'm sixty two going on sixty three."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:41:14 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote snerks lightly overhearing Veikitamo, but keeps focused on her own conversation.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:41:16 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote stands and offers Esna a bow. "My pleasure to finally meet you in person, your lordship." She trails off questioningly on the last.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:41:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And you are a capsuleer? besides in the Empire that's barely middle aged ."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:42:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Why, it'd be easy to find a match for one such as you."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:42:38 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "I feel old sometimes."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:42:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Veik.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:43:04 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote smirks, "I'm in a relationship already, but thank you for the thought."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:43:12 ] Literia > /emote quietly stands up, straightening out her dress. She walks towards the exit
    [ 2015.03.08 00:43:57 ] Esna Pitoojee > We are not in a formal setting; simply 'Mr Pitoojee' will do quite fine here.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:44:40 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote smiles and sits back down.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:44:50 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Will you join us?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:45:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "You are?" She looks curious but is too polite to pry.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:46:38 ] Literia > /emote quietly slips out of the Masque
    [ 2015.03.08 00:46:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *well, not pry blatantly anyway*
    [ 2015.03.08 00:46:53 ] Zenariae > /emote wanders about the room and spots Arkon Sarain. She moves up to his table and bows "Dr Arkon, hello! Um we met briefly yesterday at Bel's...um may I sit with you?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:47:55 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote stands as Zenariae approaches, and bowing with a smile, "Of course Ms. Havraan I remember, and it would be a pleasure." A hand extends to indicate a chair, "Would you join me in a platter of some Ni-Kunni food?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:48:31 ] Esna Pitoojee > I'm also sorry I could not ultimately attend the conference, ms. Starfall. I hear it went well, though?
    [ 2015.03.08 00:48:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How is your brother, Hevaima?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:49:18 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "I'd say he's busy establishing operations at Caldari Prime, these days."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:49:20 ] Zenariae > /emote sits, plopping her bag next to her and nods affirmatively, speaking quietly "Um of course...but I should mention I'm vegetarian um.."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:49:59 ] Jennifer Starfall > Yes, it went very well, thank you. Both in attendees and presenters.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:50:33 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote waves a waiter over, "Not a worry I will ask for some extra pickled cacti, and spiced cabbage." He whispers an order, and then resuming his seat pours a glass of ice-water for Zen and then for himself, "Did you enjoy the cooked orange?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:53:01 ] Zenariae > "Yes Dr Arkon ...it was lovely, um although the portion was huge. It's a delightful place I think I may return from time to time um for a treat."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:53:06 ] Esna Pitoojee > That is good to hear; it would be nice if someone could take up the reigns of the conferences and continue to guide them in these changing times.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:53:17 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote leaves the masque.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:53:38 ] Jennifer Starfall > That's what I hope to do.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:53:56 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "This was the, ah, science conference that I heard about?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:54:45 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote nods, "Yes, your grace."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:55:03 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote chuckles, "Yes Ms. Boma's servings tend to be on the... generous side. I should really be careful with how often I go there." Chuckles some more "I am sure she would be overjoyed to hear that. She was worried that the parlour wouldn't be a succes...
    [ 2015.03.08 00:55:06 ] Jennifer Starfall > I was also pleasantly surprised at how civil the proceedings were.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:55:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks a bit discomfited "Oh. Well that must be why he sent me that letter then. I thought he was relocating to Amarr."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:56:23 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote smiles at Luna, "Hevaima does a lot of business, and the Empire always has been a big market."
    [ 2015.03.08 00:56:47 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Was that unexpected?"
    [ 2015.03.08 00:57:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I see." She pauses as if pondering whether to ask something.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:59:07 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote gives the question some thought. "I wasn't sure. Discussions about wormholes, Sleepers, and even the Drifters, have been treading into realms that are usually governed by beliefs.
    [ 2015.03.08 00:59:31 ] Jennifer Starfall > And some of the theories put forth have started challenging our assumptions about the universe around us.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:00:01 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote gestures to Jennifer to elaborate.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:00:22 ] Zenariae > /emote smiles and ponders on a thought "Isn't it curious how we consider desserts and treats with guilt, um..when really it's the thing we want most or at least first. Desserts ought to be the first meal, maybe.." she chuckles a little.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:00:26 ] Zenariae > “I feel like that when I need to do my work, um.”
    [ 2015.03.08 01:00:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ms. Gesakaarin, please don't misinterpret this question, but is your brother single?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:01:20 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "As far as I am aware, yes."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:02:00 ] Esna Pitoojee > That the proceedings were civil was deeply surprising. In the past, pushing political points of view was a serious problem.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:03:06 ] Jennifer Starfall > Well, Lord Crases' presentation that basically compared wormholes to galactic-scaled cyno generators was, frankly, unsettlings.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:03:08 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote nods a thank you as the staff deliver the selection of food, "Please help yourself, the pickled and dried cacti are quite delicious." Smiles, "So you'd begin with ice-cream and end with a steak? Interesting, I wonder how that would sit in...
    [ 2015.03.08 01:03:34 ] Arkon Sarain > *on the palette..."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:03:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am curious. if I were to know of a Caldari who is single... does it matter terribly their corporate affiliation?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:04:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think she and Hevaima could make a lovely couple"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:04:03 ] Jennifer Starfall > One of the reasons for the submission committee this time around was to avoid those political issues.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:04:17 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Why was it unsettling?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:04:26 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote laughs softly and takes a sip of her vodka, "Really, playing matchmaker now Lunarisse?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:05:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote blushes "Well.. it occurred to me just now. My mind is always working..."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:05:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "A suave and sophiscated businessman who knows how to treat a lady right is a rare commodity"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:05:59 ] Jennifer Starfall > In order to jump a Titan, such as the Empire's Avatar-class, you need to light a cynosaural beacon. With proper managmeent of the generator, you need about 300 cubic meters of liquid ozone.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:06:49 ] Jennifer Starfall > These beacons, the one that opened the wormholes, required a star going nova.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:07:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > But I don't want to run into a minefield....
    [ 2015.03.08 01:07:34 ] Esna Pitoojee > Hmmm.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:07:59 ] Zenariae > /emote studies the food in front of her innocently. The pickled cacti looks fascinating but it's completely foreign to her "Well..what mean is, say in terms of work, I'd rather be photographing beautiful places, it's my dessert, but I need an income...
    [ 2015.03.08 01:08:02 ] Zenariae > “…which is my meal, but I’d much rather be enjoying dessert because it’s what makes me feel good. Um, it’s a bit odd though, I guess…” She picks up some cutlery awkwardly and prods at a piece of cactus.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:08:51 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "I understand the mechanics, child; I was wonderin why that was unsettling?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:09:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Veik.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:09:55 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote picks up a fried Al-Dehr Beetle, and with a crunch nods approvingly, "Not bad, they must have a Ni-Kunni in the kitchen." Smiles and sips at his water, "Ah I see the reward for undertaking less enjoyable things? Is that what you mean?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:10:31 ] Lord Kailethre > /emote dejectedly gets up and leaves the venue.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:10:47 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote blushes. "It's a matter of scale, your grace. He's proposing that the entire cluster is being invaded."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:11:09 ] Esna Pitoojee > It is strictly speaking possible to jump without a cynosural beacon, but doing so requires considerable scanning beforehand. Considering the recent appearance of those cloaked structures, could they be operating the scanning end of the equation?
    [ 2015.03.08 01:11:13 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "No, it should not be problem if they are a capsuleer, Lunarisse."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:11:40 ] Jennifer Starfall > It's possible.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:12:28 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote hums thoughtfully. "That would be worrysome, but why would it cause incivility?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:13:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "I wasn't sure. As you know in the Empire we are fairly class concious even in Capsuleer ranks"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:14:44 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > "I would say it is difficult to explain how it is with a Caldari and their parent company. Sometimes... well, you have to be Caldari."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:14:46 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote shrugs
    [ 2015.03.08 01:14:59 ] Jennifer Starfall > "Worry" is an emotional state. "Civility" is a rational state. Emotions and rationality are typically at odds with each other.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:15:50 ] Jennifer Starfall > Typically, when emotions are involved, rationality typically loses ground.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:15:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote has a faintly dissatisfied look.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:16:41 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote gives a brief resigned sigh, "By way of example, let's take my recent outburst on the IGS."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:17:06 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods, waiting for Jennifer to continue.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:17:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well, I don't even know yet. I just had a friend who.. well. I get ideas at times." She shrugs casually.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:17:17 ] Jennifer Starfall > Ms. Kernher's comments invoked in me an emotional response.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:17:32 ] Zenariae > "Um... yes Dr Arkon, we feel awkward about doing the things we really enjoy, the things that gives us a sense of purpose, and focus our attention on less purposeful and satisfying means...um and set up feelings of guilt instead of enjoyment..."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:17:34 ] Zenariae > She bites into the cactus and chews. The flavour is powerful and overpowering and she flails for water. It’s unexpectedly spicy and she’s not accustomed to it. “Um…”
    [ 2015.03.08 01:18:11 ] Jennifer Starfall > When I spoke in Mr. Seriah's defense, while I had valid points, my response was not rational, and not civil.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:18:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "He hasn't even responded to my most recent mail anyway."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:18:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Did you enjoy tonight?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:18:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Veikitamo Gesakaarin
    [ 2015.03.08 01:18:38 ] Jennifer Starfall > Had I not been emotional, my tone and approach would've been more rational and civil.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:19:18 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote chuckles at Luna's expression, "I did yes, and as I said Hevaima can be busy at times with... his interests."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:20:37 ] Jennifer Starfall > Also, regarding people presenting their research findings, they place a great deal of persoanl investment in their projects.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:20:56 ] Esna Pitoojee > /emote tilts his head slightly, pulling up the IGS.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:21:02 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote has a mischevious grin, "I should have warned you that Ni-Kunni food is very spicy." Chuckles a little but with a serious note, "Surely we are right to fill guilt at turning away from that which is our duty?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:21:09 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "There's nothing wrong with a litter emotion."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:21:55 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "God created us with emotion. To deny that is to deny our humanity."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:22:00 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote glances at Esna and colors slightly, "And sometimes we respond with more than a little emotion."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:22:18 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote nods.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:22:27 ] Jennifer Starfall > I wouldn't even think of disputing that.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:22:50 ] Jennifer Starfall > I just think that sometimes it's too easy to let our emotions take control of us.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:23:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "My pardon Ms. Gesakaarin, I need to say hello to a few others who are here."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:24:10 ] Esna Pitoojee > Hmm. *Esna nods slightlu.*
    [ 2015.03.08 01:24:56 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote nods, "Of course, one must always be the charming hostess and you are if anything a woman with charms Lady Aspenstar."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:25:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles warmly as she slides from the the table.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:25:47 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Of course. We must remember that emotions are a part of us, but that they do not control us."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:26:00 ] Zenariae > /emote begins to visibly sweat as the spiciness of the cactus build on her palette. The flavour is quite unusual though, very salty but full of flavour. "Yes...but that's why if we have dessert, our priority, our duty if you like first, and then all.."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:26:04 ] Zenariae > “…the mundane things second, we needn’t feel guilty because we’ve already fulfilled our duty to ourselves um… the cactus…”
    [ 2015.03.08 01:26:11 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote says ruefully, "And that sometimes is a challenge."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:26:24 ] Veikitamo Gesakaarin > /emote reclines back in her booth seat as a server refills her vodka and leaves the bottle.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:27:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way over to Jennifer, Alizabeth, Esna and Zenarei "I hope you all had a pleasant evening?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:27:32 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote waves a waiter over telling them to bring a small bowl of cold yoghurt, once deliver he pushes it and a spoon to Zenariae, "This should help." Smiles and nods at Zenariae, "A very wise statement>"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:27:37 ] Arkon Sarain > ((*.))
    [ 2015.03.08 01:27:48 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote smiles up at Lunarisse. "Hello, Ms. Aspenstar. Yes, it was very nice."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:27:55 ] Zenariae > /emote’s face is turning quite bright red and beads of sweat begin to pour down her forehead. “Oh my…”
    [ 2015.03.08 01:28:15 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote politely hids a smile and laugh in his glass, taking a deep drink of water.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:28:37 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote sighs. "I'm afriad I have to go, though. I'm supposed ot meet with Ms. Lianne for a talk."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:29:19 ] Zenariae > /emote can't fumble for the yoghurt spoon quickly enough. She feels like she's going to burst into flames.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:29:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says lightly "Oh? Well that should be lovely." She gives Jennifer an encouraging smile. "Please tell Shalee I will be passing through Cerra in a few days. I am making warzone deliveries"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:09 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote nods as she stands up.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:11 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote is doing his very best to maintain a decorous and proper appearance, "The yoghurt should help a lot."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:13 ] Esna Pitoojee > Ah, well. I think I should be off as well.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:21 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Of course. Have a good everning." Lyse smiles to Lunarisse, "Blessings."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:26 ] Jennifer Starfall > Depending on how things go, I may try to catch up with you afterwards.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:30:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Have good night Sir, Please give Lady Pitojee my regards."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:02 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote bows to Alizebeth and Esna each in turn. "It was pleasant talking with you, your grace, Mr. Pitoojee."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says brightly. "I'd like that. We also need to talk as I recall."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:32 ] Jennifer Starfall > Yes... please.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:38 ] Esna Pitoojee > I will, thank you!
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:48 ] Esna Pitoojee > And thank you as well, Ms. Starfall.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:31:56 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Lord Piroojee, if you want to make up for missing the service, you can support my petition." she nods firmly.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:32:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head at Alizebeth "Yes,I have supported it."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:33:08 ] Jennifer Starfall > /emote walks out of The Golden Masque.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:33:56 ] Zenariae > /emote helps herself generously to the yoghurt, finds a napkin to wipe her brow. Her cheeks glow brightly at this fiery feast. She eyes a beetle suspiciously but is curious. "This is um...unexpected.." she smiles and blushes sheepishly, although no-one....
    [ 2015.03.08 01:33:59 ] Zenariae > …would be able to see the blush for the spice.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:35:26 ] Arkon Sarain > "Ni-Kunni food is rarely seen outside the Empire I take it? Well even in the Empire it is not often eaten by anyone except Ni-Kunni." His eyes follow's Zen's to the beetle, "You should try it, it isn't as spicy as the cacti, lovely and crunchy."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:35:51 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote for his own part he chooses a skewered roasted steppe skink.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:42:36 ] Zenariae > "I'm not used to exotic foods um I stick to plain salads mostly..." Reaching for a beetle she studies the object. She's not afraid to try things, the beetle however is something extraordinary. Biting, it crunches and she considers the flavour.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:42:44 ] Zenariae > “You’re Ni-Kunni then? Um I know little if anything of that culture…where is your homeworld, Dr Arkon?”
    [ 2015.03.08 01:43:10 ] Esna Pitoojee > That, I can definitely do. The unregulated trade is highly problematic.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:43:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Esna.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:44:09 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote nods "Well, it's not something I intend to let up upon."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:44:35 ] Esna Pitoojee > Good.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:46:47 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote nods, "Yes I am, I was born on Mishi actually - homeworld for the Ni-Kunni." A slightly proud smile, "What do you think of the beetle?" Bites a little bit off of his steppe skink, "If you enjoy salads you should try the spiced Mishi Cabbage."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:47:38 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Well, I will let you go. Thank you for your support, Lunarisse. I should go give a greeting to Dr. Sarain before I head out myself."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:49:04 ] Esna Pitoojee > Of course. Be well, Reverend Amalath.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:49:25 ] Zenariae > It’s bit of a chomp, but the beetle reminds her of nuts and she happily chews away. It’s far less potent than the pickled cactus, even subtle by comparison, but flavoursome. She adds some cabbage to her plate and it already looks as if it...
    [ 2015.03.08 01:49:27 ] Zenariae > …contained a furnace.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:49:28 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Blessings to you both." she bows her head and walks to Arkon and his guest
    [ 2015.03.08 01:49:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles at Alizabeth "have a Blessed Night. Samewith you Sir."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:51:02 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote stands and bows, "Blessings your excellency." Extends a hand, "Allow me to introduce Ms. Zenariae Havraan, Ms. Havraan this Bishop Alizebeth Amalath." A bow of his head, "I trust you enjoyed the readings reverend?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:51:12 ] Arkon Sarain > ((*is))
    [ 2015.03.08 01:52:10 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Blessings to you, too, Arkon. Ave, Zenariae." she smiles to both. "Yes, it was quite the event."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:52:28 ] Zenariae > /emote stands, carefully not to bump the table and bows respectfully "Um, a pleasure sir..." and returns to her seat to contemplate the cabbage.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:53:45 ] Zenariae > "Ma'am ...um I mean...um..."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:53:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances about the room and gives a please smile. She departs.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:54:02 ] Zenariae > /emote blushes shyly and tries the cabbage
    [ 2015.03.08 01:54:22 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Maybe someone's been hitting the wine a little too much this evening?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:54:53 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote chuckles a little, "Reverend is the most appropriate way to address her excellency, Ms. Havraan." Turns back to Lyse, "Sadly I missed the earlier readings, work kept me detained, I trust they were also good?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:55:22 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote watches Zenariae for her reaction to the cabbage, pushing the yoghurt a bit closer to her again preemptively.
    [ 2015.03.08 01:55:38 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Very good indeed.ddd."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:56:46 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote nods, "I greatly enjoyed the last piece, it was by Fleet-Captain Shutaq if I recall rightly." Sips at his water, "I should not be surprised that I found it so enjoyable."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:57:18 ] Alizebeth Amalath > ((stupid keyboard))
    [ 2015.03.08 01:57:25 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Why is that?"
    [ 2015.03.08 01:57:40 ] Zenariae > /emote enjoys vegetables, however blandly prepared. The cabbage though appears to be intricate and mixed with other ingredients, so she attacks it with enthusiam...
    [ 2015.03.08 01:58:44 ] Arkon Sarain > "The Fleet-Captain used to be a court poet and author in service to a Holder family on Mishi - I remember encountering some of his works." Smiles at Zenariae, "I am glad you seem to be enjoying the food so."
    [ 2015.03.08 01:59:47 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Ah." Lyse nods.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:00:10 ] Zenariae > The assault however comes in return. It's very salty again and heavily laden with spices. Zenaries cheeks glow "Um..." she grasps her napkin and croaks a little hoarsely "The poetry was very powerful I thought..um.."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:01:30 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote stifles a chuckle again, and focuses on the conversation at hand, "Indeed, the structure was most pleasing to the ear - though I must remember to get the Fleet-Captain to recite it one day, writers always add the inflections they intended."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:01:34 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Did you at least warn her about the food?" she asks Arkon, a little amused
    [ 2015.03.08 02:02:11 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote gives a look of mocked sorrow, "Alas your excellency it slipped my mind, I did however order some cold yoghurt to help with the spice."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:02:42 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote smiles ever so slightly.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:04:33 ] Zenariae > /emote fans her face, commenting on the poetry “It seemed quite bleak though, even melancholy um..” She croaks but heaps another mouthful of cabbage. “I’m not sure I can taste the difference b-between this and the cactus um it’s so spicy…”
    [ 2015.03.08 02:06:21 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote is smiling a lot, and with a chuckle, "It seems though that the spice is not putting you off it at least." Nods at her observation, "Sadly there does seem to be a great sense of melancholy among capsuleers, not without reason of course."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:08:47 ] Alizebeth Amalath > "Some other time, you'll need to tell my why. But I must take my leave. Blessings to you both."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:09:07 ] Arkon Sarain > /emote bows as the bishop leaves, "Of course reverend, blessings for your day."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:09:17 ] Alizebeth Amalath > /emote departs
    [ 2015.03.08 02:09:31 ] Zenariae > /emote stands to bow again "Reverend." she says and returns to her seat.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:10:26 ] Arkon Sarain > "It seems we are among the last left." Smiles and looks around, noticing a slave who comes running towards him, "Ah I see..."
    [ 2015.03.08 02:11:13 ] Zenariae > /emote continues to fan and fuss, once again attacking the yoghurt with gusto. There appears to be no end to the fire.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:12:12 ] Arkon Sarain > "Forgive me Ms. Havraan but it would seem that I am needed." Standing and bowing with a smile, "It has been a pleasure, I hope you enjoy the rest of the meal." Saunters off, telling the staff to deliver another bowl of yoghurt.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:13:17 ] Zenariae > /emote stands again and bows, bumping the table slightly Curse that nuisance Caldari habit. "It was a pleasure Dr Arkon" She resumes her meal.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:15:21 ] Zenariae > /emote continues on her own and tries another beetle. The texture is awkward but it's not unbearable although she has to pick out what seems to be a twiggy part of a roasted leg from between her teeth.
    [ 2015.03.08 02:24:15 ] Zenariae > It seems odd now eating on her own, the restaurant is quiet now yet it doesn’t really bother her. Tackling some more cactus and cabbage she appears to be dealing with the sweaty furnace on her brow reasonable well. She stays and indulges the food...
    [ 2015.03.08 02:24:54 ] Zenariae > avoiding the meat mostly. There is some sort of lizard in there amongst it all which she thinks might have been cute if it were alive. After some time she finishes, satisfied, feeling woozy with the spicy heat and burps accidentally. She looks around...
    [ 2015.03.08 02:25:00 ] Zenariae > with a guilty expression and covers her mouth deciding that it would be time for her to move on, wipes her brow and heads for the exit.
