"Because I like the atmosphere," she responds. "I think my eyes were starting to get strained because of all the dim lighting."

    Fun fact: this witch can actually see perfectly fine in the dark.

    "Besides, I needed a change in scenery."
    [In search of a quieter place]

    Oh suspiciouse. Good for her Fade doesn't know that she tells differetn stories. Otherwise he might change the scenery to a room with just a chair and a to bright light in the face. Fade has also a perfect view in the dark. He comes from a world with 99% darkness so his kind got more problems when there is to much light.

    "I see, then you should head back and into a grove. One of them seems to be still empty. Just take one of the seats in the back. People won't bother you unless they pass the other chairs. You also got a good view over the people." and he can keep an eye on her as well.

    "I assume you produce the silk yourself?" Mia says. "Does it have any special abilities? I was looking for a new robe, Ms...."

    Isaac nods.
    ”Well you look good, Natalie. And I’m always happy to give you a boost if you want, Iknika. Isaac is entirely serious. He sees nothing at all wrong with carrying his date on his shoulder or something to that effect. What’s the point of being a huge elephant person when you don’t get to do that?

    Talking with Anri

    Anri seems entirely unsurprised by this statement.
    ”Relax. That just makes you like almost everyone else.” Anri hasn’t exactly expected to just run into people with that kind of magic anyway.

    "I'm feeling a little clumsier than usual, and the ceiling looks awfully close." Iknika also looks a lot shorter, but Natalie doesn't mention that. "I think a masquerade ball's the best time to show it off, because everyone here- well, except you two- doesn't know who I am, or that I'm not always a loxodon. Although I don't think I've actually seen many about." Isaac, and his grandmother, and a few others in Inside, usually at a distance, but... Not many, when compared to the elves, humans, dwarfs and so on.

    [Dena and Company]

    Dena glances at the elephant 'young man' for a moment. Several questions being raised all at once. First, how exactly did Electra know this young elephant man? Considering how she knew Tina and Faayyad one couldn't help but to wonder. Especially as she couldn't even tell how 'young' this man was.

    Secondly, how did the elephant man and what she believed to be one of the boss's relatives know one another? Should she tell Dipsnig about this? Did goblins have any ideas of improper conduct? Since if they were dating she didn't really have Tina's imagination or abilities to understand how they were circumventing the connective issues they might be facing.

    Thirdly, who was the second elephant person of the group? One of them was dressed in traditional feminine clothing, but considering the nexus she was't sure how many assumptions she could make regarding which one of them who was the 'young man'.

    She was probably overthinking this though. Surely they were all just platonic friends and the man was the elephant in masculine clothing. It was the most simple answer and thus the most likely one.
    Dena leans over to Tina. "Eh, that little goblin gal with him is the boss's relative I think. We should probably keep an eye on her anyway so she don't get close to anything dangerous either way. Besides, how hard could it be?" Electra is met with a smile. "Sure, though don't you think we should find something a bit more interesting about him?"

    Isaac nods.
    ”Yeah, we’re pretty rare. But just wait; we’re also more nimble than you think. Just got to get used to how you move in a bigger form.”

    He looks down at Iknika and squats.
    ”And as for you, up you go.” Isaac deftly places the goblin on his shoulder and stands up, his date securely seated.

    Maybe look into a new religion that's more leg-friendly.

    The giant spider skitters to the side a step.

As such, her wings encourage her distaste quite a lot.
    "Well, I can't blame you." Anchor says. There are plenty of groups she no longer trusts an inch, even if the Fae isn't one of them. Indeed, at the autumn ball they came across quite well to her. Which just makes it more disappointing when they go around taking peoples' fingers, really.

    The shadows of the two get more and more out-of-step, they probably seem to be dancing a completely different dance by now.

    "You mentioned you can change shape? How is that?" Talking about flying is less of a giveaway now that Jack has wings all the time.

    "Oh, I don't doubt it. But this isn't really the best place to practice dancing, since I'm still getting accustomed to moving this much of me around." She'd probably overbalance and fall over, or step on somebody's foot. And if she did either of those things, she'd probably break something- and not herself, either.

    Jacked Anchor

    "Oh, yes. I'm not human, even before I had the wings. I can turn into a jackdaw, or stop part way through the change so I just have feathers or a more bird-like form, a beak or something. It's an inherent ability; I was born with it, like everyone born to a native of the Clattering." Her children will be like her, too, but if she were a boy they wouldn't. "I'm never all the way jackdaw, just like I'm never all the way human, despite what I may look like. My bones are hollow, my hair doesn't grow longer than this, and there's probably other differences. I can't change the wings, though they get smaller when I do. And... And what's our shadows doing? They're doing the wrong dance." The eyes in her wings noticed it, and she glanced with her head-eyes to confirm it.

    "That's amazing!" Anchor says, imagining Jack as more of a bird. "Do the extra wings help? I mean, it seems like they might get in the way." She's wondering a lot of things, actually, but doesn't want to bother Jack with too many questions.
    At the question, she looks over at their shadows and misses a step in their own dance, probably bumping into Jack. Hopefully nothing worse than that.
    "Oh, sorry, sorry. They're dancing their own dance, it looks like. Didn't want us to have all the fun."

    "Well, I can still fly just fine. I don't really think about it, that's the best way to fly. Birds know how to fly without having to worry about learning how to flap their wings, and now I've got four wings, that way still works." A bit like walking, really. Jack will try to steady Anchor after the bump, since she distracted her and doesn't want Anchor to fall. "Well, I suppose that's fair enough." Jack's quite happy with that answer, even if it didn't really answer the 'how are they doing that' aspect. It might be part of the party, or part of Anchor. Or even something she's picked up recently and hadn't yet noticed.

    Electra raises an eyebrow behind her mask. She wasn't expecting any of Dipsnig's relatives to show up tonight, much less one so young. Well, good for Isaac.

    "I'm not sure, but I wasn't told to exclude anyone under a certain age, so, it's up to Lady Arachne, I guess," she says to Tina with a shrug, before giving Dena a smile. "But no, that's all I want to know. He's a good kid, just haven't seen him in awhile, and am curious how he's doing." She could elaborate on how she knows him, but she's not acting like she does around Tina or Fayyaad, so it's probably safe for Dena to assume that the relationship is a platonic one.
    Why is it Plan A is always, "Get 'Em!" and Plan B is, "Cause as much collateral damage as possible"?

    "It's in on of the corners. you will immediatly see it as their are more tables then anywhere else. Some spare tables."
    he will lead her to a currently empty grove where you can barly walk due to the many chairs, but somehow a path is already free like it was prepared. In fact Fade let his shadow make that when they walked in.

    "Will that be okay for your purpose?"

    Dena very much preferred Tina's version before Electra's, which was likely why she was hanging out with the former much more. Talking with some 'good kid' about his academic accomplishments at a party sounded like it would require a lot more alcohol than she had on hand right now.

    "'kay." Dena returns the smile. "We'll see what we can do." Then she starts moving towards Isaac and company while leaning towards Tina. "So, you wanna do the talk or should I? Should mention that I'm not 100 % the goblin gal there is related to the boss."

    Isaac snickers.
    "Well, be happy I sent Gramma to you and not the Grandmaster, or you'd have a lot more of you to be moving around. Poor guy." The Grandmaster was huge before his death, and despite being a ghost that can look like whatever he wants, he usually takes the appearance of how he really looked simply out of honesty.
    "And I'm glad I wore a costume with a little padding on my shoulders for you." He says with a laugh as he unconsciously scratches at his ear next to Iknika with his nose.

    When she sees Isaac use his trunk to scratch his ear, Natalie tries to copy the movement. She's not yet very good at associating her nose with another manipulating limb. "I don't think I met him when I was there. I... Did dream it, though, so that might have something to do with it. Dreams tend to fade over time, I've found." Earl can't remember them meeting, but has a sinking suspicion he may have showed up in the scene.

    Awen walks into the empty chair-filled grove that looks like it's already prepared just to reach the back.
    Wow, that's not suspicious at all.

    The suspicious witch starts to find Fade suspicious. He followed her, and then is leading her into an empty area that he prepared ahead of time with lots of chairs and tables littered around to make it harder to get out.
    She eyes him, and then takes a step diagonally to the side to get more space between them. And she slows down slightly, to get a little more space between them.

    "Okay, thanks," she says. "That'll work perfectly fine.."

    She starts to cautiously walk down the prepared path, keeping an eye out just in case this guy makes any sudden movements or tries anything funny. Book in one hand, and...is that the glint of a dagger in her other hand?!? Awen seems to be hiding something metallic in her free hand.

    "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."

    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.
    "Fae" Lady

    I'm hurt that you'd steal my partner from me like this, Your Majesty, but I suppose all's fair. Gruffydd says, magnanimous in losing his dancing partner (except Maphtey will be able to tell, of course, that he's fuming inside). Allow me. He says, before hopping nimbly up to the stage and pulling a cello from the store of instruments. He starts playing along with the music already there, a virtuoso like performance that Sekhmet will find makes it much easier and freer for her to dance along to.

    "Oh, my sincerest apologies. I was... admiring." It's the nicest way to put it. The woman seems about to extrapolate and reaffirm how bad she felt when two troublemakers show up and introduce themselves. They seem pretty intent on the one she bumped into. Maybe she should slide away now unnoticed?

    "Ah. My name's Haruhi," she says, at least introducing herself as well out of courtesy.
    Haruhi, you said? Saffir asks, savouring the name as she moves to the brunette. A lovely name. Do you know the host? She's keen on spiders isn't she, Haruhi?

Jack will try to steady Anchor after the bump, since she distracted her and doesn't want Anchor to fall. "Well, I suppose that's fair enough." Jack's quite happy with that answer, even if it didn't really answer the 'how are they doing that' aspect. It might be part of the party, or part of Anchor. Or even something she's picked up recently and hadn't yet noticed.
    Anchor had to learn how to walk after she was already grown up. It's not as easy as kids make it look!
    "Oh, thanks." And with Jack's help she's got her feet back under her.
    "That sort of thing just happens around me, with the shadows." To put it mildly.
    The shadows, for their part, barely hesitate in their other dance when the solid people notice them.

    Mia smiles at the sparkling comment. How often is that used in advertise? To much to count .
    "Yes this is a mask ball after all, but we need to call ourself. 'That lady' or 'that spider' won't do in the long term." she jiggles. "Guess I'm 'Priestress' for you then."

    To her questions. "I don't know how skillfull you are to make such an request. I didn't even know you were doing it. So my question is more about the fabric himself for now."

    "Honestly, Priestess, I'm not much of a weaver."
    Moschu reaches under the nearest table and pulls out an extremely glossy top hat.
    "But look at this."
    It's very smooth, and it really does reflect the light in an unusual way as it's moved, like it's full of stars of crystal dust.

    "'kay." Dena returns the smile. "We'll see what we can do." Then she starts moving towards Isaac and company while leaning towards Tina. "So, you wanna do the talk or should I? Should mention that I'm not 100 % the goblin gal there is related to the boss."
    [Dena and Tina]

    "See you later, Electra!" Fettina blows the cyborg a kiss as she tries to walk arm-in-arm with Dena. "Do the talk? Honey, what do you think we're going over here for?" Tina winks. "Hell, I don't know, you open up with them. I don't know how to talk to kids."

    Anchored Jack

    "It's a little odd, the shadows, but no odder, I think, than most of the things that happen in Nexus on a daily basis." Like that ice-cream van on the roof of the Investment Opportunity Union, when there's no ramp for it to have gotten there, and its robotic operator who never seems to run out of ice cream- even if customers are harder to find. Jack's not even sure if anyone else knows it's there.

    She'll continue to dance, if Anchor's happy to. "Do you know why our shadows are behaving this way? Or is it just a personal quirk that you've always had?" Either seems likely.

    Fae Lady

    Sekhmet dances to the music, moving and twirling much more naturally. She's unaware of its effect on her, thinking that she's just getting used to this type of dancing.

    "Training one kid and you're suddenly the kiddo-whisperer." Dena jokes as she bumps her hips into Fettina's. "But honestly, these aren't kids anymore. They're teenagers, a completely different kind of animal."

    Dena stops whispering as soon as they get close though. You never knew how good those giant elephant ears could pick up sounds.
    She waves at the gathered group, though is attempting to meet Isaac's gaze in particular (don't worry, she has sunglasses on!). "Hey, you're Isaac, right? Since I was just talking to you with your friend Electra over there." She gestures at the cyborg. "But I don't think we've ever been introduced, I'm Dena and this is my friend Tina. We're friends of Electra too."

    Electra watches the pair for a moment, before moving quickly over towards that area, waiting for an opening to introduce herself. She uses the time to double-check her cameras, and makes a few mental notes, then looks around, before snagging a drink off of one of the servers.
    Why is it Plan A is always, "Get 'Em!" and Plan B is, "Cause as much collateral damage as possible"?

    The Mercenary

    Cantata responds with a silent little giggle, entertained by the fae woman's strange enthusiasm. She nods, miming the raising of a glass to confirm that she would indeed be back to take her up on that offer before slipping back into the party. What an odd type of person to bump elbows with, a partygoer eager to see some chaos. Hopefully she won't end up obliging her too much - the less mayhem she might be in the center in, the better.

    Moving through the crowd and swinging her hips to the beat, Cantata starts to dance along with the rest of the partygoers... but she scans the room as she does so, looking for entrances to the backstage area of the party. Her quarry would most likely be found back there.
