Evening, on SundayStyle:
OPEN. Threadjack, threadhop, spam away![ Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen of Vatheon— whatever your newfound stature may be, Prince, Princess, Knight, or Peasant, you will all receive a message on your SFC on the eve of Saturday regardless:
You are cordially invited to the castle for this evening's ball. In addition, you are all welcome to try and solve the riddle if it fancies you. It just may break the curse!
The invitation is unsigned, but its intentions are clear. Maybe you hadn't quite noticed the sizeable castle in the distance of the city that had sprung up, but this message would surely garner your attention toward it now.
Should you arrive at the castle, plenty of attractions await you:
Ballroom ❧ A very large and beautiful ballroom is lighted up, complete with a playing violin orchestra. While the curtains will be drawn during this event, there is a windowed view and exit on one side of the ballroom that leads to:
Smee's Rose Garden ❧ A broad and colorful spanse of a garden, complete with many paths and turns. Plenty of roses are arranged in great arches, which provide perfect little places should you need some privacy with your sweetheart. Anyone familiar will even tell you that the garden was purposefully designed for just that sort of thing.
The Riddle ❧ There is an inscription located on a noticeable plaque set in one of the garden's benches. It reads:
Two are necessary to break this curse
Riled up, upset, what kind of love?
Only this kiss will stop it from getting worse.
Look for a winged one is push comes to shove,
Look for a glance slightly dark,
Search for a pair in reluctant love.
One answers a call; that's your mark;
One longs for patria though adverse.
Dining Hall ❧ Connected to the ballroom is an extremely long hall that stretches as far as the eye can see, elegantly arranged as the dining area. Expensive and exquisite cuisine seem to be on the menu— try something new? Chances are you won't be eating from a selection such as this again anytime soon!
Dais ❧ There is a noticeable raised dais that is easily visible via any area within the ballroom. It's locked off from guests, though— what is it for...?
Do enjoy. ]

Sherlock Holmes and youwhen:
from about noonish onwards, on and offlocation:
Holmes has become The Wonderful Musician
and is standing on a roughly made wooden platform in the forest, playing. Come have a listen!style:
I prefer action but I'll follow youstatus:
so open it's getting cold in herenotes: ( fun and totally optional plotting opportunity! cut for obnoxious length )[anyone wandering through the forest currently might hear a strain of violin, somewhere among the trees. if they choose to find it, they'll come upon one (1) Mr. Sherlock Holmes, dressed curiously, in black slacks, red vest, large white baggy shirt, sharp and rough-looking black shoes, a colourful scarf; his hair is mussed but looks as if a hand has slicked it back somewhere in-between songs. he's tapping his foot as he goes along, and depending on the song you might even get a slight bit of a dance from him, skipping about the crudely constructed wooden platform he's standing on. the watchers might notice he seems somewhat stiff in the right shoulder, and doesn't get too incredibly intricate in his songs, but he seems otherwise all right. he could play anything from Irish folk music to a simplistic orchestral song, and anything in-between; very often it seems as if he's simply sawing away to whatever tune suits him. each song blends into the next, and he goes on for quite some time.
he pauses now and again, to breathe and slick his hair back from his forehead again. feel free to pester him during these moments, or simply sit back and watch! his music is so enchanting! it almost feels like magic.]
