Reese arrives on the rooftop, seemingly like she is rather behind with everything. She peeks over the area, having a smile of greeting for all gathered here. "Sorry for the late start there, but thank you all for coming and bear with me while I sort through some of this stuff. I have lots of stuff." She confesses. "This is my rooftop and well it overlooks the forest and the boroughs. So it is a watch tower and a home and well Luca wanted to do training lessons on a rooftop."

I keep pinching myself to see if I'm dreaming so I really ought to have worn long sleeves. I only barely knew that negotiations were happening and learned of their success with everyone else! I haven't even seen Niklas yet!" She bounces on her slippered toes, the picture of happiness.

Amari finds her way to the top of the tower and spotting people, assumes she's found the party. There's a distracted, cursory sort of smile for everyone but she simply has to stop and admire the view. She does so from the nearest wall, which lets her peer down toward the forest. When she's satisfied her curiosity she turns back, watching and listening. There's a dip of her head to Reese after she's spoken, and a few little waves to those she recognizes. She drifts towards Denica, Coraline and Sabella, offering them a quiet hello, so as to not interupt them much.

The poor Grayson servants work to set up lots and lots of chests of things. Mostly books, but other things too. Reese seems to be all in a bustle. "So help yourself to anything you want in the chests." She says to those gathered here. She then smiles over to Sabella. "Congrats." She says in her direction.

Oswyn turns to Sabella once she re-appears and smiles at her. "Oh! Yes, congratulations! I just heard about your match with Lord Niklas! I saw him earlier today, but it hadn't been announced yet."

Luca arrives from downstairs, somehow, even after Sabella does, despite having left to come up before she did. There's that legendary laziness, at work. He comes up quietly, one hand resting on the pommel of his sheathed blade, and with a sort of casual ease to his step. "Just look at all this shit to run off with. What a surprise! I haven't seen any of this stuff before!", he jokes, walking over to a chest and pushing it a couple feet to the side with one booted foot.

"I haven't seen you all week!" she's grinning happily, looking at Sabella and than to Coraline as she looks trhough the books.

Sabella happily hugs Denica, then moves over to reach into one of the chests to pull out a little glass spider. It just so happens to be the chest near to where Reese is and she murmurs something in a low voice to her, then looks up and smiles brightly, "Thank you! I feel like I could not be happier than I am right now! Well, probably slightly happier should I see Niklas, of course. But! It is all very...I was hopeful, but realistically hopeful? Which meant I did not think it would happen."

Aviana gets A small spider made of yellow glass from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Lethe gets elegant fish comb from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

"The Grayson wine is still good, but this batch was just a little sour. Grayson apples have that issue." Reese teases even while going to peek out over the forest for a moment. She then tries to hug Denica too, because well why not! She looks over to Sabella. "I was surprised, but I am very happy for you." She murmurs.

Unsurprisingly, Luca seems to have little interest in most of the things that are laid out for the taking. Save.. one.. that he notices as he's walking over toward the edge of the rooftop. He stops, casting his dark gaze around at the gathered people before kneeling down and pulling something from a crate, which he tucks into his pocket for safe keeping. Then, he finishes heading over to the waist-height crown railing that encircles the training area at the top, his attentions outward, on the stretch of Gray Forest that sprawls.

Looks around and stops when Sofia hands her a message. Chuckling she murmured to her aide then looks around. Giving Luca a wave she grins before moving to a seat for now as she waits for her aide to return to deliver whatever it is she told her to do. Cadenza exhales as she looks at the little cache she's acquired.

Sabella gets Nilanzan Red Wine from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Reese looks over to Oswyn "Oh, you most love books too. Some day I will have to show you my whole collection. It is massive." She says, bragging about her books.

Merek is just reading books, while looking nostalgic as he sighs a bit. He is keeping to himself for the most part, having only picked up one thing while he seems to consiers the stuff.

Felicia gets Battle for Setarco - Spring 1008 from a medicore wooden chest.

Merek gets glass terrarium with gold trim from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Reese peeks over to Merek, having to him. "Hi Merek, I'm glad you came." She says toward him.

Merek says, "Is this for fish?"

"I would love that!" Oswyn tells Reese, too overjoyed to remember to be nervous.

Merek says, "Oh, yes. Thank you Your Highness."

Aviana gets The bannerman's call - Princess Tikva Grayson from a wooden chest for various stuff.

Coraline gets a small, cloth pouch, filled with some powder and minced dry herbs labeled 'Pain and hangovers' from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Oswyn gets Setarco Naval Battle - Grayson from low-budget wooden crate.

Felicia gets The Lost - Spring Battle 1008 from an ordinary wooden chest.

Reese looks over to Merek. "I'n not really sure. Maybe it is for plants?" She says studying the item. It seems Reese doesn't even know what she all has.

Aviana gets A Prayer to Limerance: By Princess Tikva Grayson from a wooden chest for various stuff.

Luca, from his spot over at the edge of the tower's rooftop, whistles at Merek, "Sir Knight!", he calls out, attempting to get the man's attention and then gesturing in a come-hither fashion with a jerk of his head.

Lisebet finally moves forward and joins in, looking through the various chests, shelves and what have you that are available. Curiously. "I am glad I brought Ramona with me," she murmurs.

Aviana gets The Language of Flowers: A Rose Cipher of Tor - 1 from driftwood marin'alfar chest.

Oswyn adjusts his satchel, which is packed tight. He's brought his stack to one side and is leafing through books with enthusiasm. "Thank you," he breathes in Reese's direction. "This is marvelous."

"Earlier? Oh my, that is a lot of items. And books, this reminds me of the boxes you had all over your shop the day Agatha and I came to help." Everyone gets a bright smile and Sabella gets a, "Congratulations Highness." Amari gets a broad smile, "So good to see you again!"

Reese looks over to Monique, giving her a smile. "Thank you, Lady Monique. I get too much stuff and I like to record much, especially about those we have lost and the battles we had recently." She says to those gathered here. She then waves over to Merek "Okay, Merek take care."

Felicia is overheard praising Reese for: Always generous!

Coraline is overheard praising Reese for: Wonderfully kind! Booze, books, and gifts, you can't get better!

Felicia runs out of arms, and with a thoughtful turn of her attention towards Reese, elects to slip away once more.

Cadenza is overheard praising Reese for: So many nice things and always so generous.

Merek is overheard praising Reese for: Generous!

Oswyn is overheard praising Reese for: ...All I see are BOOKS!

Lisebet is overheard praising Reese for: So much stuff. goodness, this is lovely.

Aneka, 3 Iron Guardsmen, Meeka leave, following Merek.

Denica eagerly returns that hug to Reese, and beams towards her. "This is always such a generous thing you're doing," she says with a beaming smile. "How do you always have so much to give freely to so many?" she wonders curiously, looking back to Sabella. "Well I can't wait for you to meet and celebrate the good news!" she smiles.

Monique gets Invitation to the Glittering Gala from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Monique, browsing through a chest, finds something that makes her go pale. "Oh," she murmurs to Coraline, plucking the invitation out. "My wedding invitation. How..." Gut-wrenching?

Luca watches Merek leave, squinting just a little bit, and calls out, "Well, whatever. Fuck you too, then!", but he doesn't seem malicious about it. He laughs, when he says that, before his dark gaze drifts back to Cadenza, who had waved to him earlier. He waves back, "Fancy seeing you here, 'Denzy..", he greets, leaning back to rest his rear against the tower's half-wall. His arms fold loosely over his chest, and for the time being, he just seems to watch the vultures, prowling through the chests of stuff. He doesn't at all seem displeased to see people taking things.

Reese returns Denica's hug, wrapping her slender arms around the Thrax princess. "I don't know..I just.." She then pauses. "I am a natural collector. It takes skill." She says, carefully avoiding the word horder. She then looks over to Monique and sucks in a soft breath. "Oh, I shouldn't have put that in there." She says a bit sheepishly.

Lisebet gets Grayson green apple wine from an apple-wine crate.

Giving Monique a hug at the discovery she whispers softly to her before shaking her head at fate.

Aviana gets The Dawn of Spring from a simple gallery.

"Thank you!" Sabella says to Coraline, looking over a bottle of wine. "Luca, how are you letting her get rid of alcohol?" She asks, before digging in again. "Remind me not to get you any tiny things for your birthday, Reesey. It's just hats for you from here on out! Maybe a blue dress. Do you remember what I told you about cerulean being the best blue back when you were seven?" She gestures to her current dress, "I rest my case."

"I've been well, Princess Denica." Amari replies, wondering at her excitement but putting it all quickly together with a smile at Sabella. "Princess Sabella, congratulations!" A dip of her head and a warm smile for her, then the same for Coraline, "Princess Coraline, so nice to see you again." So many princesses! She starts to browse the chests with them, marvelling at all the books and random knick knacks. "Oh, Veronica will love this." She notes, picking up a book about the Inquisition. That should bring her close enough to Reese to offer her a polite smile as well, "Princess Reese, this is quite a collection. The little glass figurines are so cute, where did you find them?"

Cadenza stands as she slowly makes her way over to her cousin. "Oh? Shocking....I know." A playful roll of her eyes. "I needed to escape the captivity of my bedroom at some point...." A snort of laughter a she folds her arms. "And need a break from all these new duties....I figured I'd come and see what was about."

Monique tucks the invitation away quickly into her backpack. "Ah, no. No, it's fine. I'll just..." Weep over it quietly? Burn it? All of the above? "... get rid of it." And she leans in to whisper something back to Coraline.

Aviana gets The Ever Standing Mountains from a basic art gallery.

Reese looks over to Sabella. "Oh, I remember that, but I haven't wore blue or even dresses for a long time." She says in her direction. She then turns to Amari. "They are made by Dame Felicia. She has a shop in the lower boroughs that stocks them. Its called Heart of Glass, I think."

Whatever is being said, for the moment, Lisebet is not listening as she regards the boxes. Finally she just gives up, and gets some of the apple wine to try.

Aviana gets A SONG FOR THE INQUISITION: By Princess Tikva Grayson from a wooden chest for various gifts.

Coraline gets a small, opaque pink glass vial of fragrant oil from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

"They're keeping you captive in a bedroom? How sma--..", Luca begins, before catching himself, on purpose, and giving Cadenza a troublesome look, "..awful. You're the sort of woman who does better out and about. If you need me to drop through and rescue you, only send a missive. I'll come kick down a door and light the place on fire and put you on a horse, ass-smacked, and headed for the mountains..", he promises. After, he notes, "..Uh, the horses ass would be smacked, I mean. That's how you get them to run, I remember. I've been on at least one horse..".

Aviana gets A small bee in black and yellow glass from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

To Denica Cora smiles, "Find anything fun in the chests? I mostly have been looking for nice gifts for my sisters."

Amari gets a tiny octopus in orange glass from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

"Good!" Denica grins to Amari, and back to Sabella, still bouncing. Yay! Engagements! She begins the search for some stuff in the mass of everything, but Denica just seems to be browsing mostly, nothing at the moment really catching her eye. "I've been keeping quiet busy, but soon we should go get some drinks again, I'm sure there are members of your family I haven't met yet, after all," she grins towards her with a little wink.

Denica shakes her head to Coraline. "Nothing that's caught my eye, I'm afraid. I'll keep looking though!"

Lisebet's gaze is horrified for a moment as she overhears Luca, but then he clarifies, and she breathes again. Relaxing, she settles down, glancing around to see who she recognizes, and who she doesn't. "Princess Sabella, congratulations," she offers, though she leaves it there for the moment.

Aviana gets an adorable corgi plushie from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Denica gets The Language of Flowers: A Rose Cipher of Tor - 1 from driftwood marin'alfar chest.

Oswyn might have to start putting things back, sadly. He starts diving his loot into three piles.

Letting out a light she just nudges her cousin and shakes her head. "Newlwed....remember? And I had the audacity to marry a Fidante....you know how they are...." Smirking she just laughs then. "I'm sure the Archduchess is glad my ass is staying in one spot for once....Iggy is seeing to that. He doesn't want me running amuck like I did before." Cadenza gives him a wink. "And I don't want to talk about horses.....I'm being forced to learn how to ride."

Denica gets The Language of Flowers: A Rose Cipher of Tor - 2 from driftwood marin'alfar chest.

Aviana gets Menagerie Plush Series - Blacktip Shark from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Reese keeps close to Denica and Sabella. "Oh, I remember, I was going to promote the Gray Forest. If anyone has any questions about the Gray Forest tel me know. Also protecting the forest is very very important I sometimes lead missions into the forest. That you can let me know if you want to join when the time comes."

Sabella stops digging in the chests to actually look out at the view, moving over to the wall, "Wow, Reese. This view is beautiful." When Lisebet congratulations her she turns her way, "Thank you! I shall never get tired of hearing that people are happy for it! Especially considering the flurry of activity in the whites today. I was half afraid the Faith would just outlaw marriages in general while people figured it out."

"Dame Felicia's Heart of Glass." Amari repeats to herself, making sure she's memorized it. "They'd make lovely gifts." Watching Coraline pick a green glass octopus, she picks up the orange twin to hold it to the light, apparently finding it quite neat. "It reminds me of the squid, from the birthday party." She grins over at Denica. "If you ever have a free evening send a message, we should catch up!" She notices Lisebet about then, and waves to her, "Lady Lisebet, hello! Shall we have that drink after?"

Monique nods over in Reese's direction. "They are very worthy missions. I myself was just on one," she adds, for the general benefit of all.

Aviana looks through the boxs and trunks her cheeks a bit pink as she looks through them, she seems very happy when she finds the animals made of glass and then the stuffed ones. She looks to Reese, "I thank you, your highness for sharing such beautiful things with us." she says softly smiling.

Denica gestures towards a bow that's slung over her shoulder and gives a little wink towards Reese. "I've been learning a few tricks, maybe I could help you, some day?" she suggests. She looks over at Sabella curiously. "Flurry of activity in the whites? I've stayed away these last few days, what have I missed?" she wonders, before she shoots a grin to Amari. "Yes! I'm free many evenings, don't be shy to send for me too, I like being invited to things," she grins and shoots a wink towards her, stepping away from the chests to let other people look, having come away with a pair of books on roses.

Luca fixes Cadenza with a long look, as if he's figuring her out, before he mentions, "You shouldn't mention riding lessons right after you mention you've been occupied with your newfound like as a Fidante's wife. People are going to get the wrong impression, 'Denzy..", and he flashes her a quick, roguish grin, "Or the right impression? You did that on purpose, didn't you? There are Oathlanders here, you know. You're going to cause a blushing fit, if you keep that up..". He seems at ease, comfortable against the half-wall.

"Princess Reese, you outdid yourself tonight, this is all amazing. Thank you very much for your lovely gifts. The glass and the stuffis are adorable."

Oswyn puts A Prayer to Limerance: By Princess Tikva Grayson in a wooden chest for various stuff.

Oswyn puts A Poem of Calarian Grayson: By Princess Tikva Grayson in a wooden chest for various stuff.

Oswyn puts The bannerman's call - Princess Tikva Grayson in a wooden chest for various stuff.

Reese looks over to Sabella, giving her a nod. "Oh, yeah, I am sure the faith is fustrated with marriages right now. but if anyone will prove that they can work it will be you and Lord Niklas." She then peeks over to Monique, giving her a smile. She then turns attention to Denica. "That would be great, thank you."

Cadenza lets out a snort then as she shrugs. "Look....you knew me briefly as a kid before mom died....then after I washed up and ended up here. Even then....I'm still the same. Only difference now I try not to be a complete..." She pauses then laughs. "Okay try....to not be a complete scandal for Iggy. But shockingly....I have no time to go run amuck with all these new appointments in Fidante. Seems I get to be put to use now....in Velenosa there's so many of us...."

Aviana gets Orange Shag Rug from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Lisebet chuckles at Sabella's comment. "I think things appear to be calming down on that front, so you are likely okay to proceed, Princess Sabella." And then she nods to Amari. "Yes, we could definitely do that, I agree. In fact, I appear to even have a drink, and the view up here is lovely."

Reese has a gentle smile for Coraline that reaches her blue eyes. "Thanks for coming." She says in his direction. "I'm glad you did and maybe one day you could come here and spar. I should hold a sparing event here sometime. I think that would be fun."

Oswyn puts Crovane Battle - Spring 1008 in a commonplace wood chest.

"I hope so, Reese." Sabella says, giving her sister a smile, then saying to Denica, "Oh, the whole Lady Vanora thing. I was actually a little worried that might impact negotiations too, but it seems people want to focus on some glad news instead and I am very happy for it. Oh, Reese, you'll be happy to know Baron Audric is going to teach me how to get out of the way when someone swings a weapon. He promised to keep me from running into anything when I ran away too."

Oswyn puts War of Spring 1008 - Support Grayson in a ratty wooden chest.

Oswyn puts Special Strike Forces - Spring 1008 in a banal wooden chest.

Reese looks over to Sabella and seems all thoughtful. "Well, just be careful around the Baron." She says to her sister, but then adds. "I'm am glad you are getting those lessons. The more safe you stay, the better for the Graysons and well for me too and of course Niklas, but mostly for me." She teases.

Luca laughs at the conversation with Cadenza, "I'm sure he appreciates it. You know the Fidante are just loathe to be the object of a good scandal..", and then he's pushing off from the half-wall, but turning to give his cousin a light smack to the shoulder, "I'll swing through there and we can all get drinks. Keep uh.. not being a scandal, until then. I've got a couple of stories that will make you laugh, when we get to them. But, for now, I've got to go take care of some business. Serious, serious business..", he assures, before leaning into her a bit and murmuring something.

Aviana gets glass terrarium with gold trim from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Aviana gets blue shag rug from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

Ignacio makes his way onto the Training Rooftop when he spots Cadenza, he makes his way over to her. Slipping an arm around Cadenza's waist. "Well hello my lady." The dark haired knight says to Cadenza rather informally, "It is a nice evening to be out under the stars, is it not?"

Aviana gets Authentic 'Pirate' Hammock from a wooden chest with a dark cherry finish.

"Oh, that's perfect and the view is phenomenal! I'll find a good spot." Amari beams over at Lisebet, since she's already armed with a drink. The Keaton will have to scrounge up something before she runs out of hands, not that she's going too crazy, besides the thing for her cousin, a painting of the Crovane mountains and the octopus. She perks her ears at the talk of the journal war, or controversy but obviously hasn't been keeping up, she looks a bit confused. "I haven't written in my white journal for so long. Maybe now's not the best time to pick it up again if it's getting furious."

Twelve books are much easier to carry than twenty-four books. Oswyn has mournfully halved his take of the loot, and now returns to various chests to put the discarded items back where he found them. He also neatens the stacks, because some things are instinctual.

"Baron de Lire saved my life in the Lowers just this week. I was there when Mae Culler was nearly killed," Sabella tells Reese, then glances at those who remain, "So, do be careful if anyone ventures down there. The warnings are not just to scare Princesses, the danger there can be very real."

Aviana puts what she can into a backpack she has and makes her way over to Reese."Your highness." she says to the princess of ribbons, "Thank you, these will come in handy I just arrived in arx not to long ago and just set up my shop with my new home. It will not feel so empty now." she smiles, "I do hope I will see you there some time, perhaps I can make you something in thanks for this."

Denica nods to Sabella and smiles. "Oh I see! Yes, I would love to just focus on the happy, I only just heard about Lady Vanora last night, and quite honestly I don't have the time to worry about it," she shrugs and than gasps. "You were attacked?" Denica asks. "What happened? Gods I'm glad you're okay!"

Luca pauses near Reese, as he's leaving, and leans in to murmur something to her.

Reese looks over to Sabella and sucks in a soft breath of concern. "I didn't realize you were there. I am glad that you are okay." She says in her direction. "And well I guess if he saved your life, he can't be all bad." She concedes. Reese then turns her focus to Aviana, giving her a nod. "Oh, I am glad that it helped and well you don't have to make me something and if you do, I would like to pay for it." She adds to her.

Oswyn squints over at Sabella, his eyebrows arching upward. "You were there? What was it all about?"

Giving everyone she knows a wave, Cora and Monique begin heading out, bottle of apple wine in hand. "It was lovely to see you all. Take care of yourselves."

Kit, the grey fox, a tiny man with a BIG unpronounceable name, 1 Greenmarch Guard leave, following Monique.

3 Thrax Guards, Monique leave, following Coraline.

"Do come by! The new pool is awesome and...I have something else to show you...." Winking she then hears the whisper and laughs before turning to feel those arms. Looking up she laughs a bit then nods. "It is....but did I take too long? I didn't mean to...." Grinning she motions to Claudio who was holding then. "I got some things so if you need me....we can go." Cadenza smiles softly.

Perhaps in a bit over top fashion, but obviously playful and good natured, Ignacio steps back holding his arms out to his sides with a big grin on his face, "But my love, I always need you. For you are my everything." He says publicly, clearly amused with himself and perhaps to just see if he can embarrass his wife a little with his antics.

Giuseppe, a kindly old man leaves, following Luca.
