  • The Fantasy Ball: Music on the Bridge

    Eighteenth Day of the Eighth Moon,
    Eighteenth Year of Recent Awakenings

    In accordance to the will of Her Majesty, and in upholding the duties charged to me as Senior Chronicler, I hereby submit an account of
    The Fantasy Ball: Music on the Bridge.

    In preparation for the annual Fantasy Ball, hosted by the Outer Librarians Mistress Adeline and sera Calamity, there are three smaller events being held leading up to the Ball. The first of the three was held on this 18th Day and 8th moon by sera Calamity where mythical compositions were enjoyed by all.

    The musical affair began at the fourth late bell in the middle of the grand bridge. In attendance included Mistress Ezraella, Adeline, and Theresa as well as ser Malatrios and this Chronicler. Decorative powder-blue streamers were elegantly strung against the walls, creating a festive theme in the already magical landing.

    Upon arriving at the social, everyone was greeted by sera Calamity before she opened up the event with a brief introduction.

    "As you may know, the theme of the Ball is mythical creatures, and I pondered how you would go about creating 'mythical music'. To me myths are oft based on tragedy, fear, or mayhap sheer boredom and lonesomeness, so my own piece will portray that."

    However, before displaying her own musical prowess, she invited Mistress Ezraella to start the event off. And so the Mistress did. With her rosewood lap harp, she began a soft melody that would soon turn into an enchanting display of talent. Within a matter of minutes, she had all in attendance swaying and closing their eyes as if to visualize the music that flowed through their ears. As the final pluck of her strings came, she received a full applause as well as numerous compliments.

    Once the group was again settled, sera Calamity gingerly prepped her silver-maple viol and resumed the event. This composition was "Tragically Beautiful" as ser Malatrios described it. The sway of the music dipped and rose, revealing pain and loneliness with each stroke of her bow. The music continued for a little over four ticks before sera Calamity slowly brought it to an end. Just as last time, she was met with applause and compliments, but the difference between the upbeat melody of Mistress Ezraella's harp and the depressingly beautiful sounds of sera Calamity 's viol was surely heard.

    The rest of the evening concluded with light conversation about the other upcoming events.

    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,
