(Invitation here- 276533. You don't need one to join!)
You've finished getting ready for the ball, so you step out of your house and check the invitation- only to realize that the writers forgot(?) to put the location.
Frowning, you wonder for a moment where it could be- then jump at the sudden sound of a meow at your feet. Looking down, you find a cat sitting on your doorstep, staring up at you with intelligent eyes. It meows again and pads off.
It's the same cat that brought the invitation.
You follow it to a large mansion in the forums. It's down a wide lane lined with blossoming trees; a sweet scent fills the air as the last rays of the dying sun color the world gold. As you come upon the mansion, you can't help but admire the beautiful lawns, the massive white stone building looming over everything- and yet, fitting in so well.
The doors have been thrown open, and you walk across the porch into the entryway. A teenage woman- no more than nineteen- stands at the door. Her dark skin is complemented by the deep purple dress she wears, and her mask is dark gold and spotted- a leopard's.
She pulls up the mask slightly and grins at you. "Glad you could make it," she says with a nod. "Nice to meet you. I'm Laurel. Coatrack's in the hall. Ruby should be here by sunset. Until then, enjoy. You can wander around, the mansion's not anyone's home. Just don't get lost."
You put your coat on the rack and step into the massive ballroom.
Soaring ceiling are lit by werelights and massive windows. A Sandwing stands at a small setup in one spot- most likely the music controls. Several tables on the side are filled with food. Various people wander around. A teenage girl only a little younger than Laurel comes up to you, smiling.
"Hi!" she says, beaming at you through her cat mask. Her short hair is black streaked with orange; her dress, too, is black, short and perfectly shows off the tiger fur on her arms. The mask is a tiger's, too. "I'm Tierr! It's so awesome to see you here, we're so excited to be doing this. We never get to party because Ruby says it's too loud and Zion and Nikana are grumps and we generally don't have any time anyways- so this is super exciting. You're free to do what you want, just don't start any flame wars or anything! We're wandering around if you need anything, just look for the characters with the authoritative looks. Ruby'll be here soon, we sent her an invitation, we'll be calling everyone to hide when she comes in and then we're going to surprise her. Dancing starts right after that. My cat didn't bother you, I hope. Food's over there, stay as long as you like, we've got rooms upstairs if you need quiet and- what, Nikana?" She's been abruptly cut off by someone's yell. A black-haired boy in a panther mask, on the other side of the room, calls something. Tierr mutters something and rolls her eyes. "Sorry. Tech difficulties. Someone- namely Zion- didn't show up in time to help out, so-" The boy yells again.
"Coming, bro!" Tierr calls back. "Have fun," she says to you, winking one green eye, and scurries off.
You're left to do what you like, so you wander around the ballroom. French doors open into a huge lit up courtyard attached to the ballroom, and there's plenty of seats, food, and other things lying around for you to do.
Have fun! Mess around, talk, whatever.
