[open] Vampire Ball - May 26th (backdated)

The invitations go out a week in advance. Some of which are hand written (ink on parchment, of course), to those of whom he wishes to see personally, though of course they are welcome to bring guests. The more the merrier, or so the saying goes. Especially in the case of such an event as this. Jean-Claude is vying for the spot of President of the Night Council, after all, and while the event is not technically connected to the election, timing is everything, mes amis. And what an event it is.

The instructions on the invitation are quite simple. There is to be a ball. But not just any ball, a Vampire Ball. If you are a vampire, an ally, or interested in becoming both, you are more than welcome to attend. It is a night to celebrate the collective history of the Nest of London. Formal historical costume is a requirement of attendance. Masks will be allowed as well, though the event is technically not a masquerade. All wood and silver will be checked at the door, for this is a night of entertainment.



The event is being held in a private historic home, presumably for the atmosphere. In the foyer there is a coat check (along with wood and silver check, courtesy of Guilty Pleasure's well-loved bouncers). The guests are funneled through from there into the main ballroom, where yes, there is a live string quartet playing. How did Jean-Claude afford such decadence? It helps when you have lived for so long as he has and have had very little to spend money on besides clothes and decadence. It certainly couldn't be his own private residence -- could it?

Off to the side of the ballroom is an array of chaise lounges and other sofas and chairs, while on the other may be located several tables of refreshments. It is clearly indicated which table is intended for the vampires and which is for those who are still among the living. There is another bouncer posted on watch over the refreshments, and the punch in particular -- they need not have a repeat of the last time someone spiked their drinks in such a fashion after all. There is quite a selection of finger foods on the table for those who are so inclined to partake in such delicacies, and there are offers of champagne, wine, and punch for that table. There are finger foods on the other table as well, although not as many, and each one has an accompanying card indicating the donor's name and blood type, just in case you were wondering why they were for the vampires.

The house is of course bigger than the ballroom and the foyer, but few guests are allowed to venture up the front stairs or beyond the little hall to where the restrooms are located. That does not mean, of course, that there are not those who manage to sneak past the little corded ropes meant to keep such troublemakers within check, especially when the bouncers are otherwise preoccupied. There are all sorts of fun rooms to explore.

And so many costumes from so many eras! Guests are encouraged to talk amongst themselves and share memories of the good old days for those lived through them, or ask questions if there are curiosities from those who did not. Today is a golden age, Islington Nest is at its strongest yet, and it is a time to celebrate what it is to be Vampire. There is more to such a life than drinking blood and having fangs, a sophistication and experience beyond the hunger. If nothing else, Jean-Claude hopes to share this with the attendees on this evening.

Which at least manages to begin without a hitch, but if you should manage to stay for the end of the night, prepare for some fireworks to ensue. For what is a party without a little drama...


(ooc note: anyone is welcome to attend, though if you are anti-islington you will not get very far in the door before being turned away. certain allies/those who have helped jean-claude in the past will have received direct invitations, but there is a general buzz passed around the nest and islington allies ahead of time that will have spread through the supernatural community leading up to the day itself. as stated above, historical costume is a must -- vampires are encouraged to wear something from an era they lived through, though humans are welcome to whatever they desire! masks are fun so wear one if you like though there will be no anonymity here.

details will be in jean-claude's comment below, but his ex, asher, is going to be crashing the party at the end of the night, so if you're there for the end of the evening expect that as well. i will make a comment for asher as well on his own so you can tag with him before the main event if you decide you'd like to skip out on the fireworks as he and jean-claude butt heads for the first time in hundreds of years.)

"You clean up well. Someone might even mistake you for a gentleman, if they squint." Joscelin raises his glass at the host and smiles. "Impressive party, old friend. Do you think this will get you enough votes to win the election?"

When the lights go out, the first thing Evie does is find Jean-Claude. She stands near to him, putting her hand on his arm to let him know that she was there. She keeps her voice down: "should we have any reason to suspect foul play?"

"This party is amazing!" Nancy absolutely gushes, as she moves towards Jean-Claude. The distrust and dislike she'd had of him had all but waned in the recent months, even coming to think of his fondly. He'd been nothing but kind to her, reaching out to her.

They understood each other. And few people did.

"I want to get your invitation framed, Cooper was teasing me."

Joscelin

[personal profile] dredefulchilde 2017-06-03 10:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Early evening

Joscelin wears a simple and yet elegant suit of fine green wool and gilt embroidery to the evening's festivities, and it oddly suits his pallor and slight frame far better than the modern clothing he's accustomed to wearing. For once, he wears his sire's daylight ring openly on his right hand instead of on a chain under his shirt. This is a celebration of vampire strength in London, so he might as well do the thing properly.

He's promised Jean-Claude he'll be on his best behavior tonight, and he intends to keep that promise. He can be found throughout the night positioned fairly close to the bar, a glass of wine in one small hand, but he will do his best to mingle and not cause trouble. Even if it pains him at times to interact with the rest of the idiots in the nest.

Late evening

As soon as the lights go out, Joss is ready. He'd slipped a wooden stake into the party, under his clothes, and it's in his hand within seconds. Anyone who wants to ruin Jean-Claude's party will have to go through him first.

Nancy knows better than comment that Joss looks uncannily like a Hobbit in his get-up. Honestly, she likes the green and the embroidery. A handsome little fellows, she supposes, but has to remind herself just how old he actually is as she spots him at the bar.

On her own mission to get another martini, she slides up next to him.

"Joss, hullo." She was going to be polite. He had been cruel, but he still to her was that little boy she'd found in the alley.

Cooper knows the signs of tension when he sees them. As soon as the lights go out, he's certain that chaos is not going to be far behind. He finds himself standing near Joss and the younger vampire is standing ramrod straight, all signs pointing to him being on high alert.

He glances down to the stake in Joscelin's hand. "Do you really think that's gonna be necessary?" Hope for the best and plan for the worst, indeed.

Caroline wouldn't exactly say she's thrilled to see Joss but she can play nice. After all, causing a scene would be rather hypocritical. Plus, things hadn't gone so bad the last time she'd seen him.

"Enjoying the party?" she asks him, after picking up a drink at the bar. She's thankful for her gown's larger skirt though, since she can keep distance from people without it being awkward. Maybe next time she'll have to go full Gone With the Wind.

BALLROOM - MOST OF THE NIGHT
Who's here and looking gorgeous in his late-regency garb? Honestly he doesn't miss the tight trousers (or the hair) but he looks good so he'll live with it. He also respects the rules and volunteers his gun at the door, but with his history he's sure as hell not coming without it.

Honestly, he's not feeling that sociable. Some current goings on already have him in a pretty shitty mood, and this is a vampire party. Mostly he's just here to observe, see who Jean-Claude invited and who's a sycophant and all that. He spends most of the evening on the fringes of the party, permanently attached to a drink of some kind, and he stays well away from the blood table.

But he looks very good.



LATE EVENING
Well look at this.

Maybe he should be a little worried, but Eames is fascinated by this drama. He takes the darkness as an opportunity to go upstairs to get a view from the balcony, leaning on the banister to watch things unfold with a glass of wine.

How exciting.

"Eames!" There's a squeal of joy as Nancy, martini in hand, abandons whomever she's talking to, and going to approach her friend. She knows better than to hug him, so instead she'll just gesture madly at him, because god damn. "Look at you- oh my goodness, what is in your hair?" Gel, she assumed.

Ballroom

Cesare had half a mind to dress in his old clerical garb for Jean-Claude's party, cross and all, as a demonstration of his devotion to doing good. After all, if he can love God so much that he becomes a priest, or a cardinal even, then surely he can take care of a city?

But it's too risky, even for a man like Cesare. He doesn't want people looking too deeply into his past and such an attire would invite them to do so. So instead, he settles on something more modern, though still with a virtuous edge. It's not what he would have worn at the time, but it works for him for now. Perhaps the time has come for Cesare to shift out of his normal black attire and into something more virginal? Anything if it will help him with voters.

He's mostly staying at the sides of the room, by the drinks, schmoozing with everyone. After all, it's his goal here to get along with people and make them like him. Anyone who Jean-Claude has invited is good enough for Cesare too. Is it a bit shady of him to attempt to poach guests like this? Most definitely. But all is fair in love and politics. At least, that's his excuse.

Lights out drama. For Nancy

When the lights go out, Cesare takes this as a perfect opportunity to escape Lydia and track down Nancy. He had seen her earlier and had made a note. At the time, though, he hadn't realised how much he would need her help. He moves up behind Nancy in the dark, taking a hefty swig of his wine.

"I need you to call off your girl," he says quite firmly. Having some whore cling to him is not helping his campaign.

Of course Lydia's here. As if she'd miss a party, and a posh one at that. No, this is the place to be seen tonight, and she is determined to make an entrance and a good impression. Her dress is inspired by the regency period - at first glance, she seems perfectly pure in it, innocent even. But the low cut of the dress, and it's sheerness soon put a stop to that notion. And Lydia loves it.

She spots Cesare as soon as she arrives, and sidles up to him.
"My handsome man!" She leans in to him. "You look so very dapper, you know?' She glances down at her own dress. "Do you like it? I wore it just for you." She smiles coyly.

Cesare manages to catch her off guard and she spins around, gin sloshing in her martini glass.

"My girl?" She didn't have any girls. "Lydia's her own person." Oh, yes, she'd found out who Lydia's Mystery Boyfriend was. Even though Nancy had tried to hint that, y'know... Maybe you weren't actually together?

But why should anyone take relationship advice from a whore?

Eames had been planning to continue his life of not interacting in Cesare in any way, shape, or form — it's a way of life that really works for him — but then he saw that child clinging to him, the same one who's now a drunk mess, and it's impossible to pass up the chance to needle the virtuous presidential candidate about it.

"Babysitting tonight?" Eames smiles cordially, a glass of wine in his hand, "I don't see your date around, is it naptime?"

The mask is hardly inconspicuous.

Costume balls are one thing--vampires are quite attached to their history and most of the garments on display tonight are likely originals--but masks just complicate things. Particularly full-face ones. How good can the security possibly be if just anyone can traipse right in, provided they look suitably dressed? Jean-Claude's just inviting trouble.

Joscelin finds himself tracking the tall stranger, watching as he circles the room. He hasn't even moved his mask to eat or drink, which is fairly suspect behavior at a party. Joss has a bad feeling about the whole thing, and it's not going away.

Oh, to hell with it.

"Excuse me, sir. I don't believe we've been introduced...?"

Cooper watches the stranger, bright and beautiful and every inch what one would expect a graceful creature of the night to appear like. There's something nagging at the back of his mind as if he's seen this stranger before somewhere. Not face to face, but maybe as if he's seen a picture of him.

Ah well. It will come to him eventually. Until then, he watches as Asher glides among the guests, talking with all of them, but never removing his mask to eat anything. Most curious. Eventually, Cooper finds himself close to the mysterious guest at hand. "I suppose you must have come from far away t'attend this," he tells the stranger.

Early Evening

Lydia is rarely seen without a drink in her hand. Her dress is certainly eye-catching - if only for the slightly historical inaccuracies that give the impression that Lydia was trying her best to look hot rather than actually from the regency period. She smiles brightly at those who catch her eye, and to those unfortunate enough to be stood near her, she begins to chatter.

"Well, I mean, it's all very tasteful, really, isn't it? I was expecting dungeons and cobwebs and maybe even a coffin or two. And actually, it's all very civilised, isn't it? Not that I mean that in a bad way, just… well, they have a reputation, don't they, vampires?"



Later in the night

Okay, so Lydia totally can't handle her drink. Nearly a full bottle of wine and a hookup or two later, and her makeup is melted and smeared across her face, her dress, already precariously low-cut, is perhaps an inch from revealing everything, and her hair is a mess.

Eurgh, this party sucks now. Lydia slinks towards the hallway, her hand trailing along the wall for slight support. She sways. Eurgh. And then she burps, though it's concealed well. But - oh no. She looks around for something, anything, so she's not sick on the floor. Luckily a rather large, and rather expensive looking gold vase is stood in the corner of the room. She makes it, just about, and as subtly as she can, she retches into it. Classy, Lyds. So classy.

"You're disgusting."

Joscelin has been watching the guests all night, lest anyone attempt to spoil the evening and ruin Jean-Claude's chances of winning the election. Like this embarrassing spectacle of a human being in front of him. He'd noticed her hanging off Cesare's arm, and watched with growing dismay as she'd gotten drunker and drunker throughout the night. Now she's retching into a priceless antique and it's only the fact that Jean-Claude has expressly forbidden him from eviscerating party guests that keeps her head attached to her shoulders, apparent relationship with Cesare be damned.

But Jean-Claude never said anything about being nice.

He hands her his handkerchief, an expression of open revulsion on his face. "Clean yourself up."

Nancy'd been putting off speaking with Lydia all evening. She knew that it would come down to a very uncomfortable truth, and she'd have to be the one to say it: Cesare was not Lydia's boyfriend, and actually believed she was a prostitute. If Nancy didn't tell her, Cesare was going to probably be a huge jerk about it. So it was the best for everyone if Nancy be the bearer of bad news.

But now is not the time for bad news, and Nancy's almost thankful that Lydia is too drunk to notice she's there. Until the poor girl starts vomiting into a vase. A few martinis in her, and Nancy still knows what to do. So she's at Lydia's side, one hand holding up her hair, the other stroking her back. "There there," she tells her, "Get it all out, love." She'll text Jean-Claude about it later and apologize on Lydia's behalf.

Early Evening

Cooper raises an eyebrow in the direction of the girl. He thinks that they had met briefly, though he'd be damned if he could remember where or when. She was a witch if he recalled. The way she's prattling on reminds him once again of what it's like to be both eternally young and over two-hundred years old at the same time. Cooper himself is dressed up in a dapper little suit reminiscent of the style of the twenties.

"Clearly, you've been hangin' around the wrong vampires. You'll find most of the creatures of the night are all about their image." Cooper had never been one much for how he was perceived, not until he had won the election. Now he was more focused on making sure he was seen as being polished and not as just an eternal impulsive teen and a screw-up, the way several citizens of London liked to think he was.

Nancy

[personal profile] stauncherhearted 2017-06-05 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
Early Evening

When Nancy had first received Jean-Claude's invitation, she'd actually stood there admiring the beautiful calligraphy and fancy paper for a good while until Cooper had to remind her that letters are supposed to be read. The contents of the letter itself brought her just as much excitement as the outside, and with a few trips around London to find the perfect costume, Nancy and Cooper were arriving arm-in-arm.

Having taken her cues from Cooper's decision to dress for the 20s, Nancy chose to set her red hair off with red accessories to match her hair and lips, standing out against the pale beading of her dress.

Most of the night, she can be found with a glass of gin in one hand, and some sort of food in the other. If you were to look inside her purse, there'd be scads of food ready to be smuggled out. Once a thief, always a thief. Or perhaps it was once a starving orphan, always a starving orphan. Either way, old habits died hard.

Caroline hurries over to Nancy as soon as she spots her. "I love your dress!" She had her own flapper dress tucked away in the closet, though the Decade Dance was still a complicated memory, which is why she'd gone with her Victorian gown instead.

"How's it going?"

Evie

[personal profile] freelife 2017-06-05 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
Early Evening

Evie would not be wearing a dress. No one should ever her expect her to wear one, and they should just get used to it. She hadn't worn them even when she was alive, unless she absolutely had to. Now, she found she enjoyed the more open-minded nature of fashion.

Which was why Evie was here in what could only be described as 80s Goth. Her makeup was heavy, her lipstick dark. The Assassin tattoo on her left tricep was perfectly visible, though hard to see as she wore her long dark hair down, her hair down to her waist. One of the many reasons she usually chose to keep it up. The result is striking, to say the least.

Making it even better is the glass of wine that Evie nurses this evening. Most of the time, she can be found with her girlfriend, laughing, trying to find excuses to put her hand on her arm.


Late Evening

The lights were out and Evie was already prepared. She didn't need any sort of weapons, if need-be. Her first thought is clear: she should find Jean-Claude and find out if something was amiss. She didn't doubt his security, but she didn't doubt that they made a lovely target- most of Islington Nest in one place. Excuse her, she's going to find out whodunnit.

Well there's an unusual take on period wear and it's a stellar look of course, he feels like he saw her rocking a more intense version of the same look back in the 80s and it's a great aesthetic on her.

Eames comes over on one of the rare occasions she's without Natasha, a warm hand on her shoulder in greeting, "so are the Banshees reuniting?"

He manages to intone like it's a real question, eyebrows raised like he's truly curious and talking to Ms Sioux herself.

Cooper

[personal profile] emotioneater 2017-06-11 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Early Evening

Cooper is never comfortable attending fancy events like this, much more at home in T-shirts and the jean vests of a motorcycle gang than in any dressed-up duds. But to not attend would be an insult to JC. Besides, Nancy never would have forgiven him if he decided not to go with her. So here he was, and rather than a usual take on the style of the fifties as he was warrant to do, he had gone for an earlier time period, wearing a dapper little suit right out of the twenties.

Anyone who knows Cooper will be able to tell he's on his best behavior, all smiles and charm for anyone who approaches. And for all that some in the Nest think him uncouth, Cooper can be just as suave as any of the older vamps when he wants to be. He wants this event to go off well for Jean-Claude. He's hitched his star to the man's wagon, and thus far, it's always worked out well for him.

Late Evening

When the lights go out, Cooper is immediately put on high alert. He can sense the emotions bubbling in the room, fear, confusion, and a certain note like everyone is just waiting for...something. But what something is that?

He looks around and it's then that he starts putting the puzzle pieces together. The picture he'd seen in Jean-Claude's office and that golden-haired stranger earlier in the evening. Uh-oh. This is not going to end well. Cooper looks around for Nancy, just in case things start getting ugly.

Nancy's a few drinks in when the lights go out, trying to do her best to find Cooper, as it were. The result is that their murmurs blend in with those of the rest of the crowd.

"Cooper?" Nancy calls all the same, trying to find her way through the darkness toward her boyfriend. A few moments before she remembers that damn it, she's a witch- and Nancy's got a small ball of light hovering over her hand as she searches for him. Where the hell is her boyfriend when she needed him?
