“Cheese and Crust” - an exclamation common among the lower classes. A perversion of the invocation of the name of Jesus Christ, though considered somewhat respectful for its veiling of the oath. — Bounce
Maybe a choice shade of grey - the closest thing she had to mourning clothes - as a symbolic marker that her relationship with Victor was dead.

ACAB | Any Rep | Hall of Mirrors

What: Hall of Mirrors
Who: Some wizard or witch working on their illusion skills
Cost: Four knuts for those twelve and over, two for those under eleven
Where: Padmore Park
Why: Spooky season is upon us
When: October 10th


An enchanted tent has popped near the edge of Padmore Park, manned by an individual who doesn’t speak much but takes the entry fee before allowing one to enter. Once inside, it’s nothing but a labyrinth of mirrors. Some people say that they feel as if they’re being watched, but no one has been harmed. (Yet.) The mirrors are mostly harmless, although they move, grow and shrink as they please. There are a handful of mirrors that don’t reflect the person looking at them, but rather something unusual. A creature? The future? Something you fear? Something else entirely? Everyone who has come from the tent has said something different, so who actually knows!

UCAB/select MCAB + Ghosts | REP 5+ | Jekyll & Hyde Halloween Masque

What: Jekyll & Hyde Halloween Masque
Who: All ghosts + UCAB and select MCAB members of the ton are invited to an anonymously hosted ball. It is claiming to be one of The events of the season where you go to be seen and to see, more than to socialize.
Cost: Only your invitation. All of the UC received one, some MC.
Where: In the countryside, at a yet undisclosed location.
Why: Spooky Season Witches. Someone wants drama to send in to WW.
When: October 31st

Come one come all to the event of the autumnal season: the Jekyll & Hyde Halloween Masque. It is a themed event, where guests are requested to dress in costume, or VE appropriate costume-like attire, accompanied by a masque to cover one's face. Nobody will be allowed entry without a masque and certain rooms are enchanted such that masques' cannot be removed. It is up to the guest if they wish to be recognized in their outfit and make friendly, or not and make devious. Rooms are lit accordingly.

At the entrance to the obscure country house, there is a house elf offering two potions to mark entry: one Jekyll and one Hyde. Each guest must select their potion carefully. The effects of each will either bring forth a guest's innermost pleasant desire, or innermost dark desire.* There will be no distinction on the bottles as to which is which, one must simply answer a question and based on the answer the potion will be decided.

Decor is very much in the vein of an opulent country home used primarily for hunting. Jack-o-lanterns and candles are the main source of lighting, while apples, harvest-themed accoutrements and the occasional enchanted scarecrow set the tone. There may be one rather shifty room far from the main hall enticing guests to explore unchaperoned, but that is nobody's business but the hosts. (Also, courtesy of Nolie's splendid brain, all the staff are wearing matching black white checkered joker/harlequin costumes.)

*Warning on the potion bottle in tiny ink: How this desire, sitting in one's belly, is manifested may vary from person to person. Drink responsibly.

WEDDING: The wedding will take place in the local parish. The chapel is decorated with vines and wisteria that will magically burst into fireworks as the couple take their exit. Brunch for the newly united families will take place shortly after.

RECEPTION: The Selwyn Estate ballroom will have been transformed into a lush ball. Inside, the walls are covered from floor to cieling in draped, gossamer fabric with an ancient grecian touch. Marble pillars are decorated in lush vines that bloom occasionally with flowers. The pillars alternate with marble statues that have been spelled to become animated for the night. The cieling has been spelled to look like the night sky. The couple will send off around midnight.
