Masquerade Ball at Blackthorn [Everyone attending the ball posts here]

Post by The Cheshire Cat on 4/21/2016, 6:53 am


At last it had arrived, the day of the ball had finally arrived. And not a moment too soon. Lena and her mother were at each others throats with the decor and in the end Lena finalized the plans for that evening. The siblings had agreed on making the ball a masquerade and went as far as putting up numerous masks around the room and Sarafina had both Lily’s and Orchids flown in for the occasion. With the cars sent out for the guests and nobody arriving for another hour the three children of Thanatos snuck off to their rooms and prepared for the night.

Lena managed to tame her wild hair and put it in a high bun at the crown of her head but fixed it so some curls hung loosely down her neck and back. Makeup as simple as it was, looked amazing today. A deep crimson lip with a smoky pair of eyes made her bright blues shine bright. Stark laid on the bed and Thor on the floor as their mother got ready for an evening. As per pack rules Stark would be the only one allowed down into the Ballroom for the night. Finishing early she sat on the ledge of her balcony and sent a text to Andrew saying Srry for attitude. Been a rough week. Truce? Now she just hoped he would accept it.

Malik felt awkward in the bedroom at Blackthorn. He had never lived there and therefor he didn’t know anything for the house. Fixing his vest and lacing his shoes the second son of Thanatos sighed and pet James as he laid on the bed next to where he sat. It’ll be alright, right James? He asked as the hound game a small bark. Malik chuckled and fixed his hair before placing his Phantom of the Opera mad on and looking at his reflection in his full length mirror. No matter how hard he tried he still always loved a bit like his brother.

Syn groaned as he laid on his bed, Duke running in the woods with a few of the other hounds and probably a wolf or two. He hated this ball idea and was avoiding his suit at all costs. The mask he was fine with, he was taking things back a few hundred years with it, the suit though was something else. It covered his ink and he had to fix his hair for the evening as well, double pain in the @ss. Finally checking to see he only had about fifteen minutes to get ready the eldest son of Thanatos got showered and dressed with ease. He decided against Duke attending the ball with him tonight due to Stark being there so he was traveling alone.

The clock struck seven and with that Synyster and Malik fetched Lena from her room. The three of them walked down and into their hiding place while the guests were beginning to arrive. This is it huh. My first ever ball at Blackthorn. Malik said nervously as Lena sat by the fire with Stark laying in front of her feet like a movie. Syn reassured him and made his way to the ballroom to escort people down the main staircase as did Malik. Lena stayed hidden however, waiting for her grand entry as she was always supposed to do with her brothers.

Andrew was practically ushering Dimitri into Blackthorn at this point. The son of Cymopoleia was utterly amazed by the sights leading up to the ballroom, he'd wanted to stop and admire everything, and it annoyed the son of Apollo, greatly. He could understand enjoying the views, but Dimitri was a little too into it, at least that's how Andrew remembered it. He could remember Dimitri stopping to enjoy the simple scents of things, and right now there were far more pressing matters to attend to.

"Which one is her?" Andrew asked, having snooped into Dimitri's affairs. There was nothing Andrew loved more than snooping into business of other people. In this case, it seemed like Dimitri was having girl troubles. Andrew was determined to hook him up with the knowledge needed.

"I don't know. I haven't seen her today, you've been rushin' me 'round all day." Dimitri responded, though he was slightly irritated. He hadn't even placed his mask on yet, it remained in his hand. He'd been on edge, all that had been on his mind was Lear. They were out there, doing something to someone. "I dunno how I feel 'bout this. Everyone wearin' masks... If I was gonna strike, here's where I'd do it."

"Would you relax? Tonight isn't about that, tonight's about kindling your love connection." Andrew said, in a teasing tone. "Besides, flying to New Zealand is going to leave a breadcrumb trail. Maybe even a jellybean trail." Andrew declared, but Dimitri still didn't feel too reassured. He knew he could make it to New Zealand with just the water on his side. There was no way to know if Lear could too. Even still, there wasn't anything he could do besides wait, and keep an eye out.

The two were dressed differently; Andrew had sprung to dress up as the Phantom of the Opera, a play that ironically, Dimitri knew much more about than Andrew. Andrew thought it would be a funny jab, but also still look classy. Dimitri still wasn't very approving of a masquerade setting, and the concept frankly threw him off. Why make people harder to recognize? That seemed like it was asking for issues. Dimitri had opted into a richer-brown themed outfit. It was a tie, waistcoat, loafers, dress pants, and a white dress shirt. It was an unusual feeling for him, wearing clothing that wasn't meant to be practical. His mask was relatively basic, and only covered the base of his brow.

"Netha, would you keep an eye out to calm down old Macdonald?" Andrew was sarcastic, but surely enough, the wolf wandered out of sight. Dimitri's brow had raised, he still wasn't sure how he'd gotten a wolf, out of all animals, to be domestically trained. "Alright, now put your mask on and look for her!" Andrew practically ordered, as though he was thirteen and looking for his own first date.

"I'll try." Dimitri sighed. He wasn't typically one for this kind of stuff, but he'd happened to slip and let Andrew know an anomaly in his relationship. Now it was turning into a bigger deal than it had to be.

Pierre would have looked out of place anywhere except a masquerade ball, or perhaps even at the ball. He walked up to the building silently hoping that it was cool in the ball room. If not, he would have to shed some layers of his carefully planned outfit.

A long cloak billowed behind him, revealing a long black coat underneath. He had a simple black dress shirt and dress slacks on underneath that. A brimmed black hat made him look taller than he already was, but he looked intimidating because of the black gloves, polished cane and the bird like mask. The mask was white, a foot long beak that covered his face with glass eye holes, and it smelled vaguely of lemon-balm and mint.

He slowed at the door as he saw through one of the eye pieces, which admitted he had made slightly larger than historically accurate, that a small young lady was coming up beside him. Stopping, he held the door open, sweeping his hat off and bowing lowly, hat and cane in hand. It showed his sandy brown hair for a second as the young lady in purple and a gold mask nodded politely and walked through the door.

Dominika had managed to get ready with some time to spare tonight. She was able to get there before some of the others, but she definitely wasn't the first one there. She had a bit of worry that she might not be able to find Leandra later when she showed up, but she did know what the small girl was wearing and would just have to look out for purple and gold. Also a short demigod who wouldn't go anywhere near a punch bowl again.

The daughter of Jupiter stood there conversing with some of the people that were already there. It was a lot easier to converse with others when they didn't have the slightest clue who you were. She talked about her hobbies for the most part and what she thought of the manor to the others and surprisingly enough she had enjoyed her time a bit.

The place really started to fill up more, and she lost track of trying to watch for some of the people she was looking for. Not to mention it was hard to pin point some of them as she had no idea what they were even wearing. This masquerade thing wasn't the best thing to do considering the whole Lear thing, but why would Lear even bother showing up here anyways?

Her thoughts were interrupted by someone coming up to her and saying hello. After a little bit of conversation exchanging the two of them quickly realized who the other was. "Didn't know you attended such things, Heath." She said teasing him a little bit.

"Oh you know, I was just in the neighborhood and just happened to own ball attire." He said chuckling a bit and began to speak again. "Now I can't remember, you dance don't you?" He asked with a grin surfacing on his face.

"Yes, you know full well that I do Heath." She said crossing her arms now knowing what his game plan was.

"Just one dance, please?" He asked and offered his hand out.

"Alright just one." She said with a small glare sent his way before she took his hand and he walked them out to the dance floor for the two of them to dance. Heath was one of Dominika's few friends she had at Camp Jupiter along with Leandra.

"It ain't easy findin' someone when they're wearin' a mask, y'know. She might not even be here yet." Dimitri said, and he made a good point. Then, he caught her hair in his peripherals. He pointed towards her, though she was a considerable distance away in the hall. "There. She's the one." Dimitri said, briefly gesturing towards Dominika.

"Are you sure? She's a little... turned at an angle and far away. Are you the son of the god of binoculars?" Andrew asked, squinting to find some sort of extinguishing characteristics on the small amount of her face he could see. As far as he could tell, she was just some blonde demigod, she could have been anyone, whether a half-sister or mortal enemy. Andrew had plenty of those.

"I'm sure. I recognize her hair." Dimitri replied, which only earned him an amused look from Andrew. "I'm serious. I know there's gotta be a ton've blonde people, but her hair in particular. There's little characteristics." Dimitri insisted.

The two watched her for only a moment, before she took someone's hand. "Y'know, maybe she cut it and you don't even kno... whoa-ho!" Andrew silently exclaimed, as though he was watching a reality show and there was a massive blindside. "Oh man, she's digging Gronkowski!" Andrew was getting into it. Dimitri only turned a confused look. "Carey Price?" Andrew asked, now looking to flash other big names; Dimitri still drew a blank. "Magic Johnson?" Andrew asked, now getting impatient, leaving Dimitri with an even more confused look. "Tall people, Dimitri, tall people. Girls love them, why do you think girls love the tallest players in sports? It sure as heck isn't because they're the best players!" Andrew practically silently scolded.

"What are you talking about? They're just dancin', that's a perfectly normal thing for people to be doin', especially when they're at a ball." Dimitri argued back, in emphasis. "I'm sure it's perfectly normal, if I went over there and talked to them, nothin' would be strange at all, just watch." Dimitri said, now more defensive than anything. Andrew was beginning to plant seeds in his head. They were just dancing, right? But what if they weren't just dancing? Dimitri began to walk towards them, just to clear his mind.

A hand gripped his wrist, Andrew's. "Hold on there, Hulk. I understand you want to walk over there and Shrek this, but that is not a good idea. Think about what dancing is. Synched up movements, close warm bodies, and a guaranteed connection, especially if it's a slow dance. Either way, if you interrupt in the middle of a dance, you're deemed the jealous type, and that earns you a seat on the bench. Like, forever. You don't want to get benched."

"It ain't like that! It ain't any different than huggin' someone, it's just a show of friendship." Dimitri protested. Dimitri wasn't a very insecure person, but he was starting to feel something unnatural. Andrew was planting all of these ideas in his head, and he began to worry. "I'm tellin' you, she's not like that." Dimitri said, still confident in the type of person he knew Dominika was.

"You're the one who said she wasn't sure if you two are dating, karate kid. Like it or not, even if she's in love with Fabio over there, she's technically not doing anything wrong. All we can do for the moment is watch. And when it's time to make your move, I'll show you how." Andrew declared that that was the plan. Hesitantly, Dimitri nodded. But with a large amount of resentment in his eyes towards the son of Apollo.

As everyone began filing into the ballroom and enjoying the evening the three children of the god of death all congregated in the hidden hallway next to the main set of doors on the second floor. It was tie to be introduced for the evening and with that the man announcing demigods for the evening banged his cane on the ground twice to gather everyone's attention.

"Ladies and Gentleman, demigods of all ages. I present to you, the hosts for the evening." He announced as the double doors opened and the three demigods walked out onto the balcony with Lena at the point and Stark by her side. "Synyster, Malik and Leanna Duchnes of the house of the moon." These things were always too formal but it was a typical way to begin a ball.

The few demigods who were old friends of the family bowed their heads and the women curtsied as they would at any other event like this. Lena stood right next to the rail and smiled down to everyone. Welcome to our home and to the Spring Dance. The youngest of the siblings said with her voice echoing through the hall as the three of them walked down the center staircase and onto the dance floor. They all agreed they hated doing things like this but it was customary and even if it was just for the demigods from the camps their mother insisted.

Syn and Malik broke off to go talk to the few other demigods who they had invited and one or two of their older family friends while Lena stayed by the doors to the gardens with Stark by her side. She remembered the last time she was in the gardens at a ball and the person she was with but pushed the thought from her mind almost instantaneously. Tonight was a night for the demigods to enjoy and relax, not to dwell on the past.

Leandra was none too sure about the whole ball idea, still, even as she entered the ball with her gold mask and her frilly purple dress. She wished she had brought a shawl or scarf with it, because the evening was a little cooler than she had expected. Still, she would be able to get her teeth and bear it.

She walked into the main ballroom, followed by a towering beaked man that had bowed to her oddly enough. She didn't recognize him and didn't think she knew him, but who could tell with the masks on? Which lead to Leandra looking around for Nika, the only reason she was here. Her eyes scanned the area, then saw Nika dancing with someone. She cursed lowly under her breath in Latin and headed towards the edge of the room to stay inconspicuous.

"So how goes it with you and the Greek boy?" Heath asked as he continued to lead Dominika in the dance. Of course he'd ask such a thing. Sighing she looked at him and gave her answer, "Well you can gather what you will from this, but he's the whole reason why I'm even here."

Just as he was about to open his mouth and say something, the music stopped and someone was introducing the hosts of the night. The two stopped dancing and listened. However, Dominika thought it was such an old practice and was sort of lame.

"So how about another dance?" He asked and that left a smirk on her face and she shook her head no. "I only told you one dance." She said and with that walked off to stand near where there may be less people so she could have a bit of a breather. Looking around she was wondering if she could spot Leandra or Dimitri yet. Still she couldn't. This masquerade thing was difficult at times.

Laure walked in, holding Andrew's arm. She was wearing a royal blue cocktail dress with silver accents on the hem and matching stilettos. Her face was half-covered by an elegant Venitian mask in the same colours, decorated with pearls and feathers. To top it off, she had a subtle necklace and an opulent bracelet, both made of silver.

"Wow," she whispered to Andrew over the music. "This is so beautiful!"

Syn and Malik were chatting with some of the demigods who had left camp years ago and made lives for themselves when Synyser saw Laure. He smiled and excused himself grabbing a tray and three glasses of the best champagne money had to offer. He didn't smile but walked over with his usual expression on. Welcome to the home of the Moon. He said pulling his mask off and resting it on the top of his forehead to reveal his face. Champagne? He asked while grabbing one of them off the tray. Tonight it didn't matter how old anyone was, champagne was for anyone and everyone to drink.

Malik saw his brother leave and walk to some friends from camp so he was left to mingle with the others who he knew from their trips to the cirques along with his mother and younger sister Lena. A thought crossed his mind as to weather or not some of the demigods he knew from camp were going to arrive or if they were even attending in general.

I walked in the large ball room, a smile on my face as I led Laure inside. To match her outfit, I had worn a royal blue tuxedo with silver buttons, silver tie and silver shoes, as well as a royal blue masquerade mask with silver detail. I hadn't seen any familiar faces so far but I was hoping I would, I didn't want to be among complete strangers. As I looked around I didn't notice a guy walking towards us with three glasses of champagne. He seemed to know Laure since he greeted her so I waited for her to introduce me. I didn't want to come of as the possessive type of boyfriend but I couldn't help but wonder if the relationship between them had always been strictly friendship.

"Synyster," she chided as he revealed his face, "isn't the whole point of a masquerade ball that you don't know who anyone is?" However she accepted the champagne flute with a teasing smile, which meant she wasn't truly mad. A little sip confirmed what she was thinking: it was top notch.

"First class," she commented. "Oh and by the way this is my boyfriend," she said, introducing the two. "But I'm not going to say who he is. At least I'm respecting the rules," she giggled, gently slapping Synyster's arm.

Syn chuckled and sipped his drink. Because it is a pain to drink with a beak. It's a pleasure to meet you as well. He said extending his had to shake. So how has camp been these past few days Laure? He inquired finishing his glass. He was very skeptical about hosting a ball of this magnitude with so many demigods away from camp but seeing Laure made it worth it, he was always fond of talking with her and enjoyed her company when Lena dragged the three of them to a bar.

"Nice to meet you"I replied as I shook his hand, remaining silent as I watched their exchange. I still couldn't figure out something from the way they spoke. I would just have to stay around and listen more. Excusing myself, I headed over to the buffet to grab a slice of delicious looking chocolate cake

Laure looked at Andrew as he left for the buffet. Hey, come back here, she thought but didn't say anything.

"Camp's been great," she brightly smiled. "War games, eagly flying, formation marches... the ususal. Gladiator games and chariot races are coming up though, and I'm so looking forward to that. How are things between you and your date by the way?"

I'm not here with anyone. Grimhilde and I broke up a while back so you could say I'm the stag for the evening. He chuckled before putting his mask on and running a hand through his hair. I don't think your boyfriend is rather fond of me. He added. He noticed how the other demigod had pretty much ignored him after shaking his hand and was far more interested in the cake than the conversation. Malik walked over to his brother and whispered in his ear before the both of them laughed. Laure, meet my brother Malik. He's the middle child. He laughed while ruffling the white haired boys hair.

Please ignore my incompetent older brother. It's a pleasure to meet you Laure. Malik said glaring at his brother with his white eyes through his mask and fixing his white hair. He was dressed in both a formal and informal manor, something his mother was actually pleased with. So how have you been enjoying the evening?

Some time passed, leading to only small conversation between the two demigods. Dimitri was now feeling paranoia, while for Andrew it was just awkward. He wished Netha wasn't keeping an eye on things; he could just chat to his heart's content to the wolf. Shortly after, the triplets, as Andrew called them, despite all having different ages, were introduced. Lena spoke.

"We'll have to thank them for hostin' this for us." Dimitri said. Even if he wasn't a fan of the theme or the setting, they were opening their home to them, where Dimitri came from, that was one of the largest signs of kindness there was. "How's that goin' anyway? You seemed kinda sore over the whole thing."

"We're on a truce. We're like Russia and the States. We aren't even sure what the heck is going on between us." Andrew shrugged. His attention got pointed in a different direction though, to the mystery girl that had apparently shot Dimitri with cupid's arrow. "Look, your girl's done dancing." Andrew inquired, leaving Dimitri with a questioning look. "So, that means now you can ask her to dance. You really need to get out more." Andrew paused for a single moment before double-taking back to Dimitri. "That was a joke, you're literally never actually around."

Dimitri went to take a step forward, at this point he simply just wanted to talk to Dominika on his own. They never had the time to even spend together, and he was watching her instead of talking to her, it was an entire waste. But once more, a hand gripped Dimitri's wrist. "Hold on there, sport." Andrew halted the other demigod in his steps, leaving him clearly frustrated.

"What?" Dimitri asked sternly. He wasn't very good when it came to anything involving deceit or stealth, at least in a social aspect. The demigod couldn't even lie successfully.

"Follow me, watch me. See what I do, repeat what I do. Simple as that." Andrew cooed in a somewhat mocking tone. But Dimitri obliged, under the manipulation of the son of Apollo. He looked around the ball, spotting several people. "Let's see... lot of colorful dresses around." He spotted Lena, and thought to ask her to dance, but would that really help Dimitri out? Not to mention, the backlash could be pretty big if things went south. Then he spotted someone, who was at least remotely alone. "There." Andrew commented, pointing towards the short demigod in the corner, wearing purple and gold.

Andrew approached her; he figured not a whole lot of people attending balls would be into the same nature he was. He thought of several things he could say, and normally would say, in any other situation. But if he taught Dimitri that sarcasm and puns were the way to go, he figured Dimitri wouldn't be having any lip battles anytime soon. "Excuse me, I couldn't help but notice you look damn good in purple." It was supposed to come out as "you look beautiful" but Andrew decided he'd have to give Dimitri some cliff-notes on the demo performance. He held a hand out to her, gathering what little formal bearings he had. "May I have this dance?"

"Malik, of course! We met in the Thanatos cabin a few weeks ago, remember?"

His hair was as blonde as when they had first met, almost white, and his blue eyes looked like ice underneath his mask. "I've just arrived so I have yet to enjoy it, but the venue looks fantastic." After chatting with them a little more, she glanced over at Andrew a few times then said, "Excuse me," and went over to see him.

"Hey babe," she purred, passing an arm around his waist. "You alright?"

Re: Masquerade Ball at Blackthorn [Everyone attending the ball posts here]

Exy groaned as he looked at the clock in his room at Blackthorn. 8:30. Well I guess that's not so bad. PM! Awe hell. The thoughts of the demigod were rampant and scrambled as he pulled out his attire for the evening and showered as fast as he could manage. He dried his hair, styled it in record time, and finished freshening up. Rushing to put on his outfit he kept debating on wether or not he should wear the cape but in the end he kept it. Fixing his hat over the top of the mask the son of Hermes rushed from his room and to the grand hall for the evening. Her stopped just before the doors to catch his breath and walked in as suave as ever. Seeing Malik he walked over and began a conversation with him as his older brother moved to talk with others.
Spoiler:

Lena noticed Andrew looking in her direction before going over to another girl to no doubt as for a dance. She rolled her eyes and walked over, standing to the side of the other girl. I do apologize but may i cut in for a dance? She asked with stark standing by her side no doubt. She really did want to dance with Andrew, seeing as this was also the song she was dancing to when they were both walking to the stables the first time he visited Blackthorn. She held out her hand as if an invitation but also to maybe drop a hint to the other demigod that she was there, not sure if she had noticed or not. The song continued to play as Lena waited for an answer from Andrew.

Cameroon promised his twin brother that he would behave himself while at this dance, but that might have been a lie. He was wearing an old fashioned matador outfit with a gold beak masquerade mask on. He'd come here alone, but knew that there were other Romans here so he wasn't completely by himself. The son of Mercury and legacy of Cupid made his way around the ball room, smiling and checking people out as he went along.

Leandra was shocked that a guy came up and asked her to dance, and complimented her outfit too. She was just about to accept the invitation to dance, when some Graeca in a black dress, tacky arm gloves and a mask that barely hid any facial features came and tried to butt in. This was not kosher.

Leandra briefly eyed the dog next to the girl, wondering what it was about Graecii and not being able to go 15 feet without a mutt with then. Then she looked at the girl, looking her over very carefully. Ah, yes, one of the hosts. "So this is the famed Greek decorum that has been talked about so much. Trying to cut into a dance before it's even been accepted. Of course he wants to dance with you! That's why he asked someone who looks absolutely nothing like you." Leandra paused for a second, giving the Greek demigod a glare that was unfortunately mostly hidden by her golden Roman gods' mask. "Yes. I mind if you cut in. Because you have all the manners of a boar." She looked back at the male demigod and smiled. "I would love to dance with you."

Cleopatra walked in with her clique, her of course standing in the middle and flanked by Gianna and Daryl.
Her dress was held on her shoulders by pearl clasps and flowed into a sumptuous draped neckline. Retracing her slim waist, it fitted snugly around her legs in a fishtail style that trailed a little behind her but stopped at the front, just at her shins, to give her space to walk -- and of course show off her pricey Gucci stilettos. It was made of shiny champagne fabric, accented with gold sequins and tiny pearls.
She had made sure that the rest of her group had dressed accordingly: all her girls were in shades of pastel yellow, baby pink, beige, burgundy or prune. None of the dresses were as good-looking as hers, though, she had made sure of that too when they had gone shopping.
All glammed up and dripping with jewels, the girls made their way to the champagne trays and took a flute of rosé each.

"To us, my beauties," Cleopatra said, hiding behind a mask whose colour matched her dress's. It was decorated with a glittering swan on the side and some white feathers. They all put their glasses together then drank a mouthful.

Lena rolled her eyes. If anyone has manners of a boar it is my brother, not myself. Asking someone for a dance while they as k someone else is very common for the aristocracy here. But, I will not pry. She said as she gave a bow of her head and walked off to her gardens as she usually did during a ball of any kind. That demigod, gods forbid, had no knowledge of how people worked here and yet she was the one calling Lena a boar. Oh well, some people will be as pig headed as ever. She mentally retorted. It was very entertaining truth be told.
