Subject:More letters!
Posted by:faeriejewel.
Time:12:11 am.
This one technically should have been sent at the beginning of the month:

Daimon,

Do NOT run off like that again. You knew you were supposed to wait another day to escort your sister to Lahkis Whispers, and yet you left without telling anyone! No, Meghan and Tomas do not count, as they apparently joined your rashness and left without informing their parents either. Your complete lack of responsibility is a disappointment. If it has anything to do with that girl you have been seeing, that foolishness will stop now. As the heir to the duchy, you have a reputation to keep up, and you must remember that.

In your absence, you missed a very important meeting cementing your future. The de Lyons approached us concerning marriage of their daughter, Kallana, to you. We agreed. Although there are some obvious issues with that family, the political advantages outweigh the issues. If we stop the feuding, our family will look better at Court. And it would be best to keep a close eye on de Lyon action. That family has raised its importance quickly and looks to have a promising future. We need to take advantage of that future. You are officially betrothed to Kallana. Do not think you can get out of this—your imprudent actions lost you the opportunity to give your opinion. We were proud of you during the war, Daimon. We hope you understand the benefits of and accept this betrothal honorably. Make us proud again. In time, you will come to like Kallana, perhaps even love her.

Love,
Your Father and Mother

P.S. You are to remain in Whispers for the duration of the summer. You desperately need to catch up on your studies. We do not want you to have to stay an extra year.


(Dai is furious. He went to Allaera to argue with his parents, but of course no change came out of it.)

One more (current):

Dearest Tomas,

We are pleased to inform you that marriage negotiations between ourselves and the Devonys are complete. Congratulations on your betrothal to Sadestrine! There is much political potential in the Devony family, and with this marriage our family will benefit from it. We hope you are as happy as we are.

Love,
Father and Mother

P.S. Please inform Meghan that we will be spending the summer seeking a marriage arrangement for her. We expect that she will let us know if she has someone in mind.


(Tom knew this would happen, but nonetheless he's not exactly "happy" about it. And Meg? Her cousin and brother got betrothed all of a sudden. She feels doomed.)

Posted by:miray722.
Time:10:52 pm.

To my daughter Kallana,

Now that you are coming of age, I am sure that you have been expecting word of marriage proposals. As it happens. arrangements have been made, negotiated between the parents of your betrothed, myself, your mother, and your brother. You are not expected to marry until you finish your schooling, but you are expected to uphold the proper image of a wife-to-be. 

The arrangement was made in hope to end useless feuds and to ensure a peaceful and stable future. Pray remember this, and also know that despite any protests, it was made in your best interest.

With that said, I will not delay longer: you are to marry Daimon Redderson. The contract has already been agreed to by his parents. Please wait to return home for the summer before you ask any questions.

Your father,
Carlin de Lyon


Kally,

As father already sent a formal one, I thought I'd send you one of my own on a less formal note; here's to hoping you don't rip it up before reading it.

I know you're angry. Actually, I know 'angry' is an understatement; I'm sure homicidal is more appropriate a term right now. All the same, take a moment and think. Think  as a politician, not a girl with only her own life. A marriage to the Reddersons is a direct link to
old money, stability; a closer voice to the king than we already have. A marriage to the Reddersons show that de Lyons are willing to forgive and to move on, and not hold useless grudges. I know what you're thinking. "Easy for me to say, safe in my marriage to Nadia."  No, I'm not the one entering a probably rocky marriage (though I hold safe to my claims that a marriage to Nadia isn't easy). All the same I'm asking you to just think. Only good can come of this in the future.

...I'm also asking this so you don't poison my wine when you come back. Yes, I helped arrange it. You know full well my feelings to Daimon Redderson. But we're growing up. Holding childish grudges is just pointless these days. Act like a de Lyon and take it with grace.

Your brother,
Sabastian

Necei,

My family is leaving for Allaera in a few days. I probably have to stay there about a week or two, but I will try to cut the trip short. I cannot wait to see you.

-Dai

P.S. My father does not want me to repeat the year of schooling I missed, so instead I have to make up classes this summer. A much better use of my time would be wreaking havoc with you, though.

Subject:De Lyon update!
Posted by:miray722.
Time:12:05 am.

Kally and Terence,

A completely informal letter; we're waiting a little longer to make the news public, but I wanted to tell you. Nadia is pregnant, and so far it looks to be completely healthy, though she's barely through her first month. Both of us are (almost ridiculously) happy and hope things continue to go well.

In other news, Alair seems to be extremely happy with Laetitia. Not that I was expecting anything else. He seems to have permanently changed since being down south, though perhaps for the better. His idealism made him sweet, but it could have landed him in serious trouble here. And it's not as if he's a complete pessimist now; just a healthy mix.

The one downside to all this is that it's continuously hard to put too much weight on my left leg before it'll give out on me. I have no doubt time can help fix this, but in the meantime, it's proving to be quite the annoyance. Well see how this goes.

We'll see you soon for summer.

-Sabastian

As of April 26, Niamh and Cavan are officially going out. (This is regular, obviously)

This has no doubt made the rumour mill, considering neither one of them really seemed the exclusive type.

Time:9:21 pm.
Dai,

Gods, I miss you too. And if I ever meet your cousin, I'm going to kill him. I nearly fainted when I read his letter. I'm glad to hear you're doing well, and I agree completely with your Healers for not letting you move. Even if they did think it was a lot worse than it was.
If you happen to repeat your year, here's one bit of consolation: you'll be in the same year as me. And we can wreak havok together.
I can't wait to see you again. Please get better and come back soon. Love you.

Necei,

Gods, I miss you so much. Unfortunately, it seems that it will be a while before I can see you again. How are you? How is Adrik? I am at home now, confined to my chambers because the healers barely allow me to move. I really do not like them and I want to get out of here. They originally thought my injury was worse than it is. Idiots. Speaking of idiots, I apologize for my cousin’s letter. Knowing him, he probably wrote far too dramatically. Stupid boy. In other news, my mother is in the process of negotiating with the Sisters at the convent over whether or not I should repeat the year of schooling I missed. I refuse to. One of the healers is due to come in soon, so I should finish this letter. I love you!

Plot time!

What? The Whispers Spring Dance. Where? The Whispers ballroom, decorated with a colour scheme of light blue, yellow, and white to signify the spring--remember this is the bottom floor of the school itself and usually the dining hall, but I promise it's extremely fancy when it's all done up. When? In game-time this dance is Friday night, the last day before Spring Break begins.

Things to Know:

- The chatroom is http://pjj.cc/danser/ and will be open all weekend. It's like the Old Whispers midwinter ball--all the events will be assumed to be happening on Friday night, but you have all weekend to play it out. This accounts for people who play many characters, so you can play different scenes at different times and not kill yourself infini-Cing. It also leaves room for people to RP as they have time--some people may not be available for long Friday night but can come on Saturday, etc.
- If you feel like being helpful, post occurances at the dance as comments to this entry. That way people can check up on what's been going on while they haven't been online, and if any major scandals are caused our characters will be able to know about it.
- In game play time, the dance goes from 9 PM to 1 AM, but it is assumed that post-dance most students will congregate in the common room for a vague sort of after party. If it becomes necessary to keep the two time periods straight, I can make another chatroom for this post-dance RP.
- Normal RP will continue as usual in the main room, though I don't foresee anyone actually wanting to since we won't know what happened to our characters on Friday until it's played out.
- The dance is not only a spring dance, it is also the last social function before Spring Break. Spring Break lasts all of next week; classes resume on Monday, April 3. In case anyone is unfamiliar with Spring Break traditions, it means no classes will be held and most students will be jetting off to various warm weather locations with their friends to party for a week. Students who are not going anywhere may still stay in the dorms over Spring Break, meaning RP will continue. Local students will go home presumably to stay with their families.
- Since this -is- Whispers Acadamy, there is no doubt that the dance will be full of scandal. Normal private room rules apply, though--use your judgement. No sex in the main rooms, kthx.

With all that said, have fun. :D

*sealed with the Redderson crest*

Dear Necei,

I am hoping this gets to the right person at the right place. You do not know me. I am Tomas Redderson, cousin to Dai. He told me to write to you. Well, it was more like, “Tell Necei…” before he passed out. Since that was rather vague, I had to guess even where to send this and I hope I am right. So let me explain what I assume he wants me to tell you:

As you probably know by the time you get this, the Toscanans surrendered (and what a glorious battle that last one was). I was on the ground (I had lost my horse not long before), in the thick of battle that day, when I saw someone rush at Dai’s horse. Being the good cousin I am, I shouted a warning at him to watch out. I did not get to see exactly what happened (I had to fend off a soldier who came at me while I was distracted), but next I knew I saw Dai’s horse fall without him on it. I managed to push my way through the chaos. I found Dai pinned underneath his dead horse, and I could not tell, with the blood everywhere, whether it was Dai’s or the horse’s. Anyway, I pushed the horse off the unconscious Dai and dragged him away from the fighting to the healers. At the end of the day, amidst the victory celebrations, I wandered over to Dai’s tent. When he came to briefly while I was there I heard him mutter your name and—well I told you all ready. The healers said that the lucky bastard will live, even though he was all slashed up and all his ribs got broken, and I think they said something about bleeding inside. But I would not worry. Dai is stubborn, so he will be fine. Well, I think that is all. If not, Dai can write you a letter after he wakes up for long enough (the healers gave him a lot of drugs).

Sincerely,

Tomas Redderson


**sent to the palace at Allaera**

Meg,

The war is over, and everything is fine. I am going to stay here with Father and Uncle and Dai (not like Dai has a choice since he is kind of half-dead—Father will tell you about that) to clean things up, I suppose you could say. So I do not know when I will return to Allaera. Please do not kill me. I fear it would have been better to die at the hands of the Toscanans than my wrathful sister. You would not want that to happen, would you?

With affection, your brother,

Tom

P.S. Do you know any Necei?


(I apologize for Tom's flippant attitude.)

The Evil Compendium of DEATH is finished.

The World of Terae

Being a Nowhere-Near-Comprehensive Guide to the Histories, Politics, and Cultures of the World of Whispers RPG (That One Place That Is Not In New York City).

-----

Eeeee yay. Done. It only took...wow. Carp. A year and a half? You've all likely added new things and new powers since the last time I asked for an update, so if you want them added in here, don't tell me because I don't give a shit.

Just kidding. :) I'll add in any new information (provided it's okayed by the mods. Do you have mods? Are you that big enough to need them? Nifty if you are), but keep in mind that it took me four months to get off my lazy bum and get this update done, so it might take me awhile. And as mentioned above, this is only good for the first Whispers, not the pretty shiny place in NYC that's been created. Happy RPing. :)

http://pjj.cc/whispers/

Cait and I checked out these chatrooms; they're so much like Beseen, you guys. This is the closest to those chatrooms that we're going to get, I'm thinking. You guys should check it out; you don't have to register before hand, you just have to insert a login and a password in the bottom of the thing. You can have avatars and colours. If you have any questions, drop me a line--I really think we should make this switch, because stea bites.
This chatroom, PS, will be used for Whispers NYC. This one: http://pjj.cc/lahkis/ will be used for Main Whispers. I'll be lurking around most of the day, so we can work out the kinks.

Subject:Letter time!
Posted by:faeriejewel.
Time:3:51 pm.
Necei,

I know you will yell at me for saying this, but I really hate it here. It is just...horrible. Yes, I did not have to return, but I still feel that it was the right thing to do. Things are grim and we are trying our best to beat the Toscanans back. They have somehow gotten much more strength than they had before. Gods knows where it came from. You want me to be honest, so I will tell you that I do not think the war will be over soon like we wish it to be. Ever since my cousin's wound healed he has been over-confident that he is invincible and that we can win easily. I worry that his bravado will get him killed. However, I believe that we can beat them, and not in same way as my cousin's foolish confidence. We already beat them once, and we can do it again. And, half of Sabastian de Lyon's troop returned. As much as I cannot stand him, his return is a good sign for Adeth. There are also attack plans being formed that I cannot go into detail on (you never know if this letter will get intercepted, and besides, the details would bore you).

I miss you.

Love,
Dai

Subject:Character Excuses
Posted by:faeriejewel.
Time:3:42 pm.
Seeing as I'm probably going to be absent from the rp for the next four months, here are (belated) character excuses:

-Daimon: Off fighting in the war. When it's over he'll probably stay south for reconstruction, political stuff, or an injury of sorts. I'm not positive on what yet, but he definitely won't return to the convent until the end of May.

-Meghan: Back at the palace in Allaera. She took Dai's sister, Ana, with her. She'll return to the convent by June to take a few classes and bring her brother, Tomas, with her.

-Evan: Still at the convent, taking classes and watching over his little brother, Trent.

-Dustin: Left for home to mourn the loss of his brother with his family. He'll return to the convent eventually.

Kallana
How can I feel so badly about this? I found out I was pregnant, what, a week ago at most? And already I'm happy with the thought. I took the potion this morning and I couldn't stop crying. I never thought I'd be the sensitive and maternal type.

I've never wanted to NOT do something so badly in my life.

...But I always do what I need to.

Kieran
Carlin,
Good news - Sabastian and a little more than half his party returned. Damien and Alair are with them now. They are all exhausted to the point of collapsing and Sabastian's been severely wounded, but everyone will survive. I am having this telepathically sent so as you'll receive it as soon as possible. Damien asked to have it sent on to Kallana and Terence.

More details when I can talk to them myself, or one of your sons will send them.

Your brother,
Kieran




Kallana - enclosed is the previous message
Kallana,

You should see the direct message.

Love,
Carlin




Neceillia
Dai,

I'm glad you made it there safely. I could made some remark about Damien, but I won't.

I'm really sorry about Reed. I remember him. He was the one who brought your first letter to me.

I hope you can write often; and I really hope you can return soon. I miss you already.
Love,
Necei
