    [Tall People Dancing]

    Okay.
    Dancing.
    Leading.
    She puts out her hands so they can begin dancing.
    It's been a long time since she's done this.
    Like, what, three hundred years? or something.
    Sure, she's danced but she's talking about being the leading partner. Oh, wait, there was that one time nearly three decades ago, but that was just for fun and it didn't really matter anyway, but...seriously? it's really been that long?
    Okay, right, so her arms need to be stiff enough for Fel to be able to feel what she's going to do before she does it, but not so stiff that it looks stiff.
    Not to mention, it's her responsibility to make sure they're moving in the right direction at each beat.
    Plus, the footwork and all the other body movements to make sure it doesn't look stiff; and being the shorter person doing the leading doesn't really help either.

    Holly the Half-ElfTM mentally berates herself for not keeping up on these important life-skills.

    As the dancing continues, she slowly gets better and better as she remembers what sorts of things she ought to be doing as the lead. It's slowly coming back.

    Fettina, of course, watches Fayyaad and Xunafae too. She leans conspiratorially toward the other ladies. "Okay, now I'm jealous. Who is she?" She doesn't make it clear who she's jealous of.

    [Dena and Company]

    Electra chuckles to herself.

    "We really should work together more often, Dena," she says, in a manner that's hard to tell if she's serious or teasing. "I'm not about to disclose all of the measures at my disposal, but suffice to say, this isn't my first rodeo with these sorts of gigs, after all."

    She eyes Fettina for a moment, following the angel's gaze and raises an eyebrow. "Just another guest, dear."


    [AROUND AND EVERYWHERE]

    Some of the more observant party goers might notice some larger spiders that move in the background amidst the smaller ones. The way they move is slightly different from the other spiders, and there's at least one near or around every entry and exit point to the party floor. They seem to have their own agendas, as well, moving from place to place on occasion, but they're easy to lose in the background. The most observant might realize they're not natural spiders, but they fade well enough into the background that they shouldn't bother anyone.

    [Spy On]

    Only one of the obvious guards seems to be watching the "Personnel Only" door, and his attention isn't full on it, since he has to watch that entire area. The spy should have several opportunities to try to sneak in, but there may be other, hidden guards watching. It would be foolish not to have such security, after all.
    Why is it Plan A is always, "Get 'Em!" and Plan B is, "Cause as much collateral damage as possible"?

    Xunafae slips around Fayyaad, seeking to take his waist in her hands, softly leaning into his back where she can whisper in his ear. She maintains a steady, sensuous sway as they follow the music with a completely different tempo now.

    "That's good. Then you'd know it quite well. This is the most everyday dancing one can think of. The historical first. Some view it as too common. But experienced dancers such as yourself surely know just how much more there is to learn. To refine. To explore." Her movements, the touch of her skin, the gentle heat of her breath upon his ear all suggest exactly what Fayyaad can explore.

    ”Yeah, sorry. I uh...good luck?” Isaac really doesn’t believe this lady’s weird excuse. Reading at a party is still weird. And this is coming from Isaac.

    Anri is all smiles and politeness to the customers, except the one who earns a scathing,
    ”Eyes up here, buddy.” which sends him scuttling away, face flushed.

    ”No, that would be a new development because of the new chassis. One I plan on reconciling as quickly as possible.” she answers to Choir’s question.

    "Uh, yeah. Sorry we couldn't be more helpful," Iknika says, equally bewildered.

    [Dragon and Dove]

    Fayyaad struggles to maintain even breathing. Even if he weren't here on a job, this is much more forward than he'd expect so early in the evening. He's never been one for long flirting or courting, but this is very quick. Even so, he'd probably play along with this incredibly sensual woman if he didn't have a task in front of him tonight. Maybe later...

    ['Fae' Lady]

    Maph replies to the aelf's totally insincere compliment with a sputtery noise.

    "Pfft. Modern? Hardly. I'm old as sand. I've been playing this role seems like forever, but HEY! I really enjoy it! So why shake up a good thing if I'm not bored with it yet?" the pooka replies with a wide, cheshire grin. "Oh! And speaking of shaking, when's that dancing going to happen?"

    Preemptively, he begins waggling his hips and swaying his long tail back and forth like a playful cat.

    And in that swaying he almost, but not quite, bumps into Sekhmet.

    "Midnight Magpie or whatever it was? C'mon! Get movin' you'll have more fun that way."


    [Talking to Anri]

    Choir continued to listen.

    And to observe.

    "How do you intend to accomplish this?" she asked.

    It seemed like a very difficult task to her, especially since humans normally didn't switch bodies.

    If they were like her, many who acted as one thanks to communion, then this situation would be trivial. But then, if this former? human were her, then there wouldn't be a problem.

    Dena throws another glance at Fayyaad and Xunafae and looks puzzled for a moment. "You know, I got no clue either." She shakes her head. "And here I thought I knew everyone that would attend a party like this."
    Dena gestures at Electra. "But considering your job Electra, no one is 'just another guest' are they now?" She raises her eyebrows. "Why don't you come back to me and Tina with a report of who this mysterious guest really is?" Dena lightly pokes her elbow into Tina. "What should Electra find out about her, huh? Give her a difficult mission here. You know how capable she is."

    Of course she's going to lead the dance. Even if Jack is taller, she's just disclaimed her dancing experience.
    "You're pretty good. I mean, not that I expected anything else. I can't say I've ever been to a rooftop party-" If she's on a rooftop, it's to get across the rooftop, or maybe to chase someone on one. "But you seem to take to this pretty easily."

    "I'm copying you, mainly. And I spend a lot of times on roofs, which rewards agility." The clumsy should avoid rooftops, unless they've got a guaranteed way to avoid hitting the ground if they slip. "You should come to one, some time. The music tends to be loud, the people... Unusual, the dancing gets you hot but the night air's cool so you can go and cool down." Earl has not been to any such party, as Earl does not have a guaranteed way to avoid hitting the ground. And tends to be a little asocial, as well.

    "Fae" Lady

    Sekhmet starts as the pooka gets close to her. "I never said I would dance." Still, she's doing it now, not very well. It's not the sort of dancing she's accustomed to, the little practice she's had is more suited to a formal ballroom.

    Oh, shoot, wait, she has to talk at the same time as dancing. Holly had forgotten that she had to do this, too.

    Her dancing skills take a brief dip while she tries to adjust to having to listen, talk, and dance simultaneously; but, as before, she quickly remembers it and adjusts.

    "Yes," she says.

    Beat.
    It's hard enough to keep to the rhythm without trying to talk off-rhythm, that Holly ends up punctuating her sentence to the beats of the music.

    "It's been a while since I last partner-danced," she says. "It's fun, and I am remembering how to do it, but it's still hard."

    I'm sure Anchor has a spell for not falling to her doom.
    "You should bring me along next time. But will I meet anyone unusual in the same way as you?"
    Jack's probably pretty unique.

    "Oh, um, no, I don't think there would be anyone quite like me. Though the Nexus is a big place, and there may be someone else from the Clattering in Inside now, I doubt they'd have the same wings like me." She's a little surprised Anchor would consider going to a rooftop party; she didn't think Anchor would be the kind of person interested in that kind of party, because she looks really classy in that flame dress.

    "She's a babe!" Says Fettina, perhaps deliberately not commenting on the comparable bodaciousness of her current company to try and make them jealous. She looks a little wicked when Dena starts in about a report.

    The chrome gal snaps her fingers. "Yea, chop chop Electra! You should know this stuff already! You should find out..." She narrows her gaze. "...Where she gets her clothes from. Be detailed now. It's got me all a'shiver and I wanna buy from them."

The precariousness, fragile nature of life expounds the dangers of delays."

    Holly keeps on dancing.

    "No, you're not, not really," she says. "I'm probably the one dragging you back."

    Suddenly, a thought comes to mind. She's been so worried about dancing right that she hasn't been looking down watching her feet. "Er...a question. When you're this high up, how do you avoid accidentally stepping on or kicking people?"


    [In search of a quieter place]

    Awen, the lady with snakes as part of her messy hair, continues her quest in search of a place to read.
    She specifically avoids anywhere with dancing, because what would happen if somebody sneaks up on her and asks her to dance?!? Then she'd be forced to do it and it would be too painful.

    MoSHSU or maybe Moschu? Sound far better then 700, because its jist 2.3333333 times of 300 XD

    She eyes Fettina for a moment, following the angel's gaze and raises an eyebrow. "Just another guest, dear."

    [Spy On]

    Only one of the obvious guards seems to be watching the "Personnel Only" door, and his attention isn't full on it, since he has to watch that entire area. The spy should have several opportunities to try to sneak in, but there may be other, hidden guards watching. It would be foolish not to have such security, after all.
    [Spy On]

    Agent C isn't an amature. Just one guard with less attention? this shouts for secret cameras or such. Which on the other hand means he is right here. He takes a good look around making sure the guard looks away and most other guards. The right when he is sure its safe he opens the door just a little bit. A moment later he is gone. He didn't go through the door yet but in some way he disapeared? On a closer look you can see him in his true stuffed animal form, which steps through the small opened door. Let's hope that trick confused any watching guard.

    A man in a suit appears to follow her. Fade has thought this one is suspicciouse. Because aren't people here to sozialize and danceHe's not trying the hardest to hide, maybe he wants to dance? XD

    Honestly, it’s not as hard as you’d think.

    I mean, it’s not like everyone else is too much smaller, and most that are small enough tend to know enough to avoid such a situation.

    I mean, as tempted as some might be, they try to avoid getting too close to my legs.

    I will admit it took a little getting used to, but now I can barely remember any other way.

    Awen notices Fade.

    After walking for a bit longer, she then turns her head briefly to double check and see with her own eyes that he appears to be following her. Oh no! What if he does want to dance? That would either be really awkward or painful, so not something she wants to experience.
    She then slightly speeds up, trying to lose him or make him give up.

    ...She doesn't speed too much, though, because...ow. She needs to remember to keep her breathing shallow.

    Actually, maybe it's a coincidence after all? She needs to confirm. The witch spots a grove set aside for not-dancing, and she bee-lines to it. Upon entering the grove, she quickly turns to the right and hides behind its hedge, waiting for him - waiting if he shows up.

    ...
    ...
    If he shows up, walking through the entrance to that grove, then she'll suddenly step out from the hedge, clear her throat, and ask in as gruff a voice as she can manage right now: "Hey. What are you doing?"


    [Tall People Dancing]

    The swing dancing to the music continues. Dancing like this fits both the theme of the party and the upbeat nature of the song the spiders are playing, so I presume the dancing they're doing is similar. (Albeit, simpler because Holly's not quite that good.)

    "It's gotta be annoying, though, having to wear pants and shorts all the time," Holly says. Fun fact: she almost exclusively wears skirts and dresses; this is probably the first time in a while she's worn pants.

    Plus, the half-human imagines trying to go shopping for clothes that fit. Big and Tall store? Are they even big enough there?

She's a little surprised Anchor would consider going to a rooftop party; she didn't think Anchor would be the kind of person interested in that kind of party, because she looks really classy in that flame dress.
    "That's too bad. I mean, they really are wonderful wings." Makes Jack stand out from the other Clattering not-birds.
    The classy dress and formal dancing are, much like the literal mask, for this party. Anchor wouldn't admit them as part of 'who she is'.
    "I love the outfits people have at places like this, but otherwise? The formality, the pomp, it's all a bit much. Don't you think?"
    If Jack keeps on dancing, she may find her shadows no longer perfectly matching her movements; rather, they would seem to be shadows cast by a version of her who's a bit of a better dancer, and is taking the lead role.

    Jack blushes when she's complimented, and smiles back. She notices the shadow's movement, with an eye in her wing. But those are always showing really weird things, so she ignores it. "Oh, I certainly do. But it makes a nice change from the usual kind of party I attend, with no dress code and much louder music. And this one's not being hosted by fae, which is even better." She subconsciously runs her thumb over the bare skin where a finger used to be, before a faerie bit it off.

    "Adventurer?" Xunafae says with a frown. "What a horribly misleading synonym for unemployed."
    Well.
    Ok then.

    "If you're hired out by others, you're a mercenary. But if you take it upon yourself to travel forth and loot, you're a raider, plunderer, or graverobber. There really is no such thing as an adventurer outside of overly romanticized media depictions." She certainly has no trouble speaking her mind.

    Despite this, she doesn't appear to think any less of Tanin. "Were you hoping for a career in dancing? You certainly seem skilled enough."

    Not really, besides, if I wanna wear a skirt or a dress, I can always wear bike shorts underneath.

    She should easily take note that he follows since his shadow is cast through the entrance befor he can go trhough it. Strangly he doesn't appear suprised that this person is jumping out from a hiding spot. In a calm emotionless voice nearly like a machiine he speaks up.

    "I was wondering if I could help you?" he replies. "You appear to search for something and avoid socialize with others. That appears a bit out of place don't you think?"
