Where: The Ballroom!
When: At various points from April 8th-10th
Rating: PG-13 maybe?
Summary: Welcome to entranceway's fourth wall event! TIME TO PARTY! ♥
The Story:

Oh goodness, we must have left the windows open a little too long. There are so many more people here than when we first started!

Well, no matter. Welcome to:


And now, to blantantly steal from our settings page for our visitors: "The ballroom's high, arching ceilings seem to reach up at least two stories above your head, despite the fact that there are definitely second and third story rooms above this spot. High, wide windows let in sunlight during the day; at night, chandeliers and wall sconces light up with so many candles, it's hard to believe the light isn't from an electric source."

The ballroom’s decorated similarly to the halls – pastel streamers, balloons, and confetti, as well as flower garlands. There are several long tables lined up on the side with almost any food or drink you could think of, including massive amounts of cake and freshly brewed tea. And yes, there’s alcohol as well. You can take your food and sit at one of many tables nearby, or perhaps you’d rather dance. There’s plenty of room for that, and plenty of music to dance to. Or maybe you’re the type who would rather mingle, or lean against the wall and people-watch.

Whatever you would like is fine. Whatever makes you happy. Whatever you want. This is a party. You’re here to have fun! Don’t worry about a thing. The mansion will take care of you as long as you’re within its walls.

(And maybe when the party is done, you won’t want to leave at all.)

[Hi everyone! Just some ooc stuff quick:

Please have a peek at the rules if you’ve been linked here without them (and head over there with any questions!). [Action brackets] or "Prose logging" is fine, go for whatever format you want; it’s basically a giant meme. And with that in mind, here’s a little something for our personal journals/museboxes/etc:

Please do not post these codes at dear_mun. You can advertise there ICly for the 4th wall event in a post of course, but we love our dear_mun friends and we don't want to annoy them all with codes being spammed five million times. So don't do it.

ANYWAY. That's about it! HAVE FUN. AND WELCOME TO entranceway

look everyone Julio's being tldr again
ULTIMATE TLDR SHORTCUT EVER: Elaine is sitting at a table by herself sobbing into her hands.

OOC: T-this is kind of embarrassing, but linked for length? lol Just in case you want the full story. Err, replies go here I guess.

There is a turtle. Mock turtle. Bipedal, semi-aquatic shellbeast. And he lurks beneath the table.

Unlike our dear, sweet Elaine, his tears are silent. They are also implied, because he's not really crying right now. In fact, he's far too busy writing some very good poetry-- it would be a tragedy if this elegantly written haiku were ruined. The very thought brought a tear to his eye.

And then another.

And then Elaine might hear someone sobbing along with her.

Elaine doesn't notice at first. Not until she takes a shuddering pause in her sobs and the sound of crying continues. Actually it sounds more like wailing at this point. She must really be losing her mind, then.

Extending her foot, she brushes the conveniently placed footrest below her. Resting almost her entire weight on it, she's too distracted to wonder at how its shape is so very shell-like.

Oh woefulest of days! Oh, such tearful sorrow! The poetry is ruined and the entirety of the Mock Turtle's history extends only to this moment! This precise second! Where he is to be degraded to the status of a poor, lonely, unfortunately, rueful footrest.

Elaine's feet are most likely wet now, due to the plethora of tears pouring down our darling turtle's face.

She does notice that, and she finally peeks below the table to see the Mock Turtle.

...And then climbs down there and sits beside him, her voice still harsh from crying, and the occassional sob working its way through. "Wh-why are you down here?"

i will respond with the least tldr guy ever
Jack has a beer, which makes him about as happy as he is ever likely to be in a social situation.

And then he sees Elaine, and something seems terribly wrong. He puts his beer into the hands of a startled bystander and strides over.


His first instinct is to take her in his arms, so he crouches a little and does so.

the universe is balanced again
And she's glad for the hug. First she shies away, until she realizes who's hugging her. Then she flings her arms around him and starts soooobbing like the little girl she is.

"Hey. Hey. What's going on?"
Apr. 9th, 2011 02:51 am (UTC)
"My mirror. She-" She shakes her head, realizing that she doesn't want him to know. "She's just scaring me, that's all..."

And unknown to them the Mock Turtle is under the table probably trying to write horrible poetry.

"She's here?" His grip tightens minutely. "Where?"
Apr. 9th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
"I don't know." She leans back away from him to look at him properly. "Don't go looking for her, Jack."
Apr. 9th, 2011 04:25 am (UTC)
"Why? If she's threatening you, I'm going to warn her off."
Apr. 9th, 2011 05:45 am (UTC)
She shakes her head vigorously, trying to drive the point home. "Don't. She'd just laugh, anyway."

"So she laughs at me. So what?"
Apr. 9th, 2011 01:03 pm (UTC)
That makes her smile. "You really want to, don't you?" She bites her lip. "Okay. If you can find her. Just be careful, Jack, she's dangerous."
