    [Catch up on the Event so far]

    --

    I am honored to formally welcome you all!
    Please come and partake in this feast at our ball.
    Try many fine dishes, some never yet seen,
    Which showcase the recipes of our late Queen.

    However, before we begin to consume,
    I wish to dispel the rumors in this room.
    Since several concerns have been reaching my ears,
    Allow me to alleviate all of your fears.
    Please forgive any missteps from our new friends -
    It is natural to have questions about a ball that one attends,
    And curious naïveté is no cause for alarm
    So, please, be at ease - we shall come to no harm.

    Our chef will now introduce meals we can sample,
    So gather your plates! All the servings are ample.

    Bravo, Celly, bravo! Magnificent! Well said, Your Highness!

    (A beautiful speech. So reassuring. I, for one, think she's doing a splendid job. And I'm so glad she chose to address those sticky little rumors that have been creeping around about what's really going on at this ball! What with all the time she's spent focused on preparations, I almost thought she hadn't noticed. Yet even now, her attention seems scattered... I expected to see her mingling and shooting down all the nay-sayers per usual. I wonder if she simply hasn't heard enough ruckus down here yet?

    Anyway, it's no wonder that people have been speculating, given the fact that the General keeps hogging all the private meeting rooms in this palace! Really, for a fellow so enamored of flight, you'd think he wouldn't spend so much time enclosed in there, muttering with people. It's making it quite tricky to find locations for any good old-fashioned liaisons. At least it gets all the cranky old folks out of my way.

    He should take notes from Mara, given that they're nowhere at all to be found. Honestly... Did they give up on the ball altogether and stumble back to go weep in their willow? Utterly dreary. I thought we might get a little bit of fun out of having a traitorous collaborator here to rile things up, but if all they're doing is moping around, moaning to themselves, then this party will be much more fun without them.)

    Thank you, your Highness. I'm, eh, not normally one to stand in the center of the court, but I'm very proud of the work that all of our chefs have put into this Illuminary Feast. I'd like to direct your attention to the banquet tables.

    For the appetizer course, we've got a rich Kale Artichoke Dip, blended with a gentle purée of garlic and dusted with a warm melting of cheese.

    Next up, a twist on traditional Nettle Soup, served hot, with garnish. You'll find that the creamy yogurt blend serves as a delectable counterbalance to the piquant nettle flavor, giving it a smooth, tart finish.

    After, we move on to our two main courses. First is a Moorometz Wellington, featuring wild Moorometz that has been carefully smoked via low-heat Fire Magic for several hours, then tossed with a subtle blend of mushrooms and shallots, all wrapped in a golden, crackling puff pastry crust.

    For guests who don't have a taste for freshly-hunted produce, we also have the Garden Wellington, containing a decadent blend of three separate mushroom varietals that we have painstakingly enhanced with Growth Magic, then baked to tender perfection for a warm, woody flavor.

    Finally, I'm proud to unveil the finest dessert in the late Queen Alarianthe's repertoire. Please direct your attention to the centerpiece of the banquet hall: a nine-tier nectar cake! This confection is so light and delicate that it uses no flour at all, maintaining its form only via a carefully-crafted weaving of magic that serves to-

    Relax! This is supposed to be a party, not a stress fest! Were you too worried about cooking this food to cook up an exciting presentation? Eeheehee! Never fear, I gotcha covered!! Time to unveil this "tweet" treat, DIZZY-STYLE!!!

    ~*~KABOOM~*~

    IT'S A FESTIVE FEAST, FOLKS!! Behold! We've got confetti and noisemakers and FIREWORKS and... EEEK! Woah woah woah, somebody brace that cake before it---

    SPLAT!!!

    ......Oop.

    Er... Don't... don't worry, folks! Just a few dozen shattered bowls and spilled soups and... wait wait, let me just swoop over with this broom and... um...

    Ta-da! This Beautiful Cake is good as new, ahaha... ha... Errrr... Everyone keep... looking at the fireworks, nothing to see here... Maybe I'll just... put my mask back on and duck into the crowd and-

    ERK!

    YOU! You PATHETIC waste of wings, what kind of disrespect is this?! Ruining a feast that your superiors assembled - what are you thinking? Are you just incompetent, or did you hope to INTENTIONALLY humiliate the Princess?

    By the Harpy, this is exactly why His Majesty should never have allowed Avoreals to break ranks! If I were in command, you miscreants would have learned your lesson straight out of the egg! When you dropped out of warrior training to go play with your little toys, I knew you'd never amount to anything. BUT THIS? Not even the raw life magic in the Heart of the Forest could transform YOU into a worthwhile Avoreal!

    Oh!

    What... what humiliation!

    I cannot endure such an insult against my station!

    (And... could these words be true?
    Maybe Dizzy, too,
    Is drawn into a plot to undermine my reign
    And plunge this realm into increasing pain!

    Othidar, why have you not yet found the culprit?! You must!
    Perhaps there is nobody here that I can trust!)

    (What?! Celariel, that's impossible - this is just Dizzy that we're talking about! Her surprise may have been horribly misguided, but there's no way that she would intentionally-)

    Princess, WAIT! We can still salvage this! Don't... Wait, COME BACK!

    Blast it!

    General, with all due respect, you went too far with this! Dizzy may be a nuisance, but she meant well, and that... That was just cruel. Seeing a distinguished soldier like you, hounding civilians because of minor errors in judgement - it's beneath you!

    You think I GO TOO FAR? Well, I think you do too little! Fussing over frivolous recipes at a time when you should be sharpening your arrows... Instead, this court watches you, YOU who were once the trusted consort of the royal family, as you simper over cakes and welcome dangerous foreigners into your own home! IT STICKS IN MY CRAW! There are things happening in this Forest, and mark my words, it'll take an iron set of talons to tear out the rot! You won't solve THAT over any dinner table!

    Where's the tough huntsman that I looked up to as a new recruit, eh? The one with some steel in his spine?! Over the decades I've known you, you grow weaker and weaker. I know now what it's like to have the aches of old age consume you, so I know more than ever that it's NO EXCUSE TO STAND DOWN!

    WEAKLING! You didn't used to be afraid of a good splash of blood on your hands! You didn't flinch away from a necessary murder! The Forest doesn't need this tired, USELESS chef peddling his fragile cups of tea. We need the Othidar Oakelven who gladly stabbed a traitor to death in the young princess' chambers! The warrior who paid no heed to the child who screamed and cried for pity - the one who knew that only ruthless action would save our Forest!

    I...!

    That wasn't what it was like, that night. I wasn't- I didn't revel in it! Losain broke into Celariel's room, I was just trying to put her to bed, he had drawn weapons, he - he was going to-! She was just a little girl! And Alarianthe, and Eoin, I would have lost all three of them! My intent wasn't... I wasn't...

    GRAH! I can't talk about this now. Not in this crowd, not in this ballroom, not to you. I have to go find the Princess. None of you follow me! You hear me?! This feast is...

    This feast is canceled!

    I don't care what you eat.
