Valse Château
An ongoing ball RP
Opening soon


"We waltzed wherever walls weren't~"

Planning thread





~opening

And behold, a grand set of french doors, magnificent in size and obscene in investment opens before you. "Welcome to Valse Château! May I see your invitation?" greets a lanky butler of excessive height. Upon seeing your invitation, he opens the door widely, extending his arm with a pleasant smile. "Right this way," he welcomes, closing the door behind you as you walk in. Through the elaborate hallways he laesd you, and with each step, the sound of ballroom music, that was faint at first entrance, grows fuller and more resonant. Finally, the butler turns a corner, leading you into the main ballroom. Observing the festivity, you discover an orchestra playing a soft and beautiful melody that extends across the room. Noblemen and Ladies are dispersed across the massive floor. Familiar faces areas abundant as the food offered, and the possibilities for new acquaintances are endless. It was at this point you notice someone peeking his head high above and over his group of people whom he is talking to and looks your direction. His face lights up, and he excuses himself to join you.

"Greetings and welcome!" begins a youthful, cheery man. He is dressed in a tuxedo with lavish rings across his hands, but instead of a standard black and white appearance, he has an outstanding vibrancy on his chest. His tux is accompanied by a red tie and handkerchief. Looking down at his feet, you can't help but notice a matching pair of shoes: royal red converse of classy taste. "I'm so glad you could make it! Come on, I'd like to introduce you to some people..."

As the conversations go on, the master of the house politely excuses himself to continue mingling with the rest of the crowd, leaving you to the rest of the party; and thus begins your experience at the one and only endless formal ball...
Valse Château.

    Quote (selected)
    [19|Nov 09:29 PM]:WaterLady rolls around
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:29 PM]:NOVEL MODE ACTIVATE
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:30 PM]:As Gentleman Caleb gracefully waltzes around in practice after his legendarily outstanding waltz with Lady Divs, he plays back the scene in his head, dancing with the ghost that stands in his arms. The music builds, and he closes his eyes as he is lost in his 1-2-3, step-side-together pattern.
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:31 PM]:Then suddenly, he is interrupted... on beat two, his foot hits a slightly mushy substance, and by the time he was able to comprehend what was happening, he found himself on the floor, tripped and fallen by what could be none other than a WaterLady rolling around!
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:33 PM]:"Why artst thou here?!" Proclaimed Caleb with a grin as he rose, offering a hand to the Lady Water, waiting for a response.
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:37 PM]:Glitch stared at the blank and empty appearing face of the Lady Water as she sat staring, not speaking a word. "Dear heavens, couldst you be ill this fine evening? You haven't spoken a word since our encounter!"
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:47 PM]:The awkward blankness continues.
    Glitch [19|Nov 09:48 PM]:Caleb looked away for just a moment, being impolitely distracted by something else, however, when he turned his head back, the Lady of Water had vanished. "Perhaps she retired for the night," he inquired of himself, the resumed dancing with his ghostly partner.
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:05 PM]:what xD
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:06 PM]:Caleb trips and falls again, repeats everything, and arrives back at:
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:06 PM]:"Why artst thou here?!" Proclaimed Caleb with a grin as he rose, offering a hand to the Lady Water, waiting for a response.
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:11 PM]:thank you :3 I'm just checking in on things xD
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:12 PM]:"Would you care for a dance before you return to your quarters, madame?" inquired the Glitchmeister.
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:13 PM]:i'm not a good dancer xD but sure, i can try :3
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:14 PM]:Master Glitch strolled over to the record player where he reset the record. He clapped three times, demonstrating the beat, and then the music began. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K...-C-CyU
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:15 PM]:Glitch walked in beat towards the Lady of Water, extending a hand when he came close. "The basic waltz, my lady. Follow me."
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:15 PM]:why thank you :3
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:16 PM]:"Ready, and.... 1, 2, 3-- 1, 2, 3-- step, side, together-- step side together--"
    [19|Nov 10:16 PM]:WaterLady tries not to trip xDGlitch
    [19|Nov 10:17 PM]:The waltzing couple took a twist-up or two here and there, but by the end of the song, the two were waltzing wherever walls weren't~Glitch [19|Nov 10:18 PM]:(That's good alliteration!)WaterLady
    [19|Nov 10:18 PM]:(indeed) XD
    [19|Nov 10:18 PM]:WaterLady enjoys the dance :3Glitch
    [19|Nov 10:19 PM]:The ending cue approached, and Glitch grasped the Lady of Water's hand firmly but in a way different than he had been the rest of the dance. He was trying to signal something to her... but would she understand?
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:19 PM]:(TAKE IT AWAY!)
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:23 PM]:(actually I dont get itXD)
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:26 PM]:Glitch, upon realizing that his partner hadn't had enough experience to read his body laguage, forcefully but gentlemanly and kindly pulled the Lady's hand above their heads to their full arm's extention as the final cue of the music arrive; he then twisted his hand to spin his partner in a half circle around him, but kept his feet surrounding her's. For a moment her face showed panic as she twisted but her feet stayed in one place, and she began to fall downwards, shocked!
    [19|Nov 10:27 PM]:WaterLady is panicked at first but realizes what is happening and allows herself to be dipped :o (right? xD)
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:28 PM]:Time slowed in her mind as she watched her frontal vision climb the wall until all she saw was the ceiling; she braced herself for the impact of the tile, but then, all in the exact same intance, two amazing things happened! The music hit it's final note, and the Glitchmeister caught her right before she hit the ground in an amazingly FREAKING EPIC DIP
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:28 PM]:YES YOU GOT IT
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:28 PM]:-CELEBRATES-
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:28 PM]::D :D :D hahahaha that was too fun
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:28 PM]:I think I'm going to start a thread in the members hangouts just for a constant ball
    divsalley [19|Nov 10:30 PM]::)
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:30 PM]:Divs! I had an epic dance with WaterLady too!
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:30 PM]:In NOVEL FORMAT
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:31 PM]:yay!
    WaterLady [19|Nov 10:31 PM]:we should have a classy dance party thread XD
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:31 PM]:I am starting one. It's decided.
    Glitch [19|Nov 10:31 PM]:And it will be in a mansion and I will wear a tux.
