  • The Cotillion Ball

    Twenty-Ninth Day of the Fourth Moon,
    Eighteenth Year of Recent Awakenings


    In accordance with the will of Her Majesty, and in upholding the duties charged to me as a Senior Chronicler, I hereby submit an account of
    The Cotillion Ball.

    On the twenty-eighth day, the Outer Bailey was graced with an event that surrounded courtesy and decorum with Mistress Josie as its hostess. In her own words, the event was designed to give Denizens the opportunity to learn what a formal ball might consist of in the Inner Bailey. To prepare for this event, the mistress teamed up with the Royal Curator, Master Jeffery to teach Denizens in the Outer Bailey about courtly dancing.

    "To be educated on the ins and outs of hand placement, appropriate distance, how to ask for a dance, and how to part of one," she commented about the dance classes.

    The event commenced at the ninth bell where the Mistress of Entertainments welcomed Denizens into the cream and chestnut decorated theatre. Upon entry, attendees were gifted with gift bags which included a kneeling knight statuette to represent the virtue of courtesy, a globe capturing a scene of courtesy and booklets where an incisive version of Courtesy in a Nutshell, was displayed so Denizens could carry them for reference.

    "I wanted to welcome and thank you all for attending the first annual Cotillion Ball - an event intended to bring to light the importance of courtesy and decorum. For those of you who attended Courtly dance classes, this is your opportunity to show off what you learned, and for those who didn't hopefully, you shall next year!" she stated after welcoming all to the event.

    The attendance included over ten Denizens of all ranks and groups, there they conversed and took joy in the edible delights provided by Master Geoffry. To display his understanding of courtesy and gallantry, ser Brynden was the gentleman of the evening as he encouraged dancing. Throughout the evening he asked more than one woman to honor him on the floor using the skills in which he learned through the courtly dance classes. The rest of the evening involved small games and a raffle sponsored by Mistress Josie. As the evening came end the mistress took the time out to thank each person for joining and all departed with smiles.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask that the readers indicate to me through their discretion any falsehoods I may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Office of the Chronicler, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm,
