anarchist_queen: (pensive brooding)
There was a place in the Danu Valley where it was almost always raining. It was the way clouds got caught in there. And the part of the sprawling homestead found in that location was where Leda made her home. She had retreated here when Polaris and she had gotten divorced, and it hadn't been easy to pry her out of there.

Now she sat in her favorite chair, listening to the soft thunder, and watching the rain. The same old melancholy resting in her head. Was there such a thing as an emotional hangover? From the high of the last two days of celebration, Leda kind of felt like she was crashing. Maybe she just needed coffee.

[Open for calls, or even if some of her guests are still around.]

The mood at the Ancestral estate for House Danan was not nearly as reserved as that at the palace in Alfheim. In point of fact it was a near madhouse, with children running every whichway and unruly music played by a live band.

A live band that consisted of a half Mer violinist, and a frog playing banjo. Sila was overjoyed to finally get this chance. Since she'd first been inspired to learn to play violin at Robin's birthday party (two decades in her past), she'd dreamed of getting to play with him.

They were playing a mix of Christmas themed songs and bluegrass covers of popular human ditties.

Leda was reminded of a line from a Human historical drama: "So you wanna go to a real party?"
anarchist_queen: (queen)
There were more nobles and dignitaries gathered together here since the end of the war. Lord Dagos of the Merfolk, King Thane of the Dwarves, the Matriarch of the Dragons were in attendance along with their immediate families. All the nobles of the lands of Faerie, even some from Unseelie Lands were there as well.

And then there were those Leda was meeting for the first time. The Dryads, Pixies, Kitsune, Nunnehi and Menehune had all sent representatives. And countless others.

Though naturally no Diplomats from the Human realms could be present, the Elven ambassadors to their countries had sent greetings and gifts from them.

"Furachoque of Iguaque!" the herald announced another arrival. A woman in rather elaborate golden attire entered. Her people inhabited a tropical land rich in metallic ore. They traded regularly with the Dwarves, though they were best terms with the Nunnehi and had ancient ties with the Merfolk. Their capital had become known as El Dorado out in the world. She resembled the Elves save for one difference, her feet faced backwards.

[For those invited. The herald is moddable on hand to announce you as you wish.]
anarchist_queen: (yay!)
Holy shit you guys! I've found Pre-Border-Bordertown! Come help me explore! Or I'll just send you guys lots of pictures.
anarchist_queen: (the hell?)
"Woah, wait. What the hell?"

This was not Bordertown. Leda had been trying to get to Bordertown. She'd needed some time away from Faerie and the complications of life in Alfheim. Partly it was the usual bullshit nobles trying to protect their High Born Privilage. Despite all the progress that had been made there were still apalling issues that cropped up from time to time.

But it was also the recent revelation that once upon a time Leander, one of her best friends, and if you wanted to get official about it, her Lord High Chamberlain, had been approached by Corwyn. Corwyn had tried to appeal to Leander as a fellow Monarchist. He had attempted to sway the man into betraying her.

Fortunately for all (except Corwyn), Leander's loyalty to her and compassion for the people had won out over his long held political beliefs. Still, the knowledge disturbed Leda and she'd needed to relax somewhere not there.

So, Bordertown. But, again, this was not Bordertown. Except, it was. She recognized where she was, in relation to the city she knew. But it was clean, all the buildings were in good repair, and there was no hint that Faery had encroached upon the world at all.

And everyone was staring at her.

"Holy shit I've found pre-Border, Bordertown!"

She sent off a quick text to Momo, Karla and James about her discovery, and inviting them to join her. Then she set off to explore.

[For them what's mentioned.]

[And this concludes an extremely long running plot that started in canon, and became completely fanon. Thanks to Karla, James and Blossom.]
anarchist_queen: (pissed)
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered Leda and her friends had fought their way through the castle, avoiding what trouble they could, dealing with any they could not as quietly as possible.

And now, here they were. The doors to Corwyn's map room stood closed before them, two guards dead at Leda's feet.

Eli ran up to her from where he'd been dealing with a third. "He's in there." he said. "I can smell him." He gestured to the dead guards. "And if he knew we were here there'd have been more of these."

Leda's teeth were gritted, and her right fist was glowing. "Then it's time to end this. I think I'll be polite though. And knock first."

She brought her glowing hand down upon the doors, blowing them off their hinges with a tremendous explosion that sent shards of metal and wood showering down upon, and into the occupants of the room.

Leda had been going over in her head what to say. Almost going far enough to take notes. "I need Corwyn's army to hear me too." Leda told Iranon. "Can you do that?"

"So you want to inspire our side, and demoralize theirs?"

"And maybe foment rebellion, if what I have to say makes sense to them."

Iranon raised a brow. "Yes. We can do that."

[The Obligatory speech. Once again thanks to Karla for the coding, preplayed with the absolutely fabulous Karla and Blossom.]
anarchist_queen: (Elf Princess)
Iranon had, almost the moment the enemy forces had shown up, sent one or two of his friends to infiltrate the camp followers, and if they could, without getting themselves killed, some of the rank and file.

One of those was just as glad all the nobles were dead, and likely would not actually have been broken up if the queen had not escaped. He and Leda had never gotten along. But that was neither here nor there.

He loved all the ideas that had been bandied back and forth in the strategy meeting, and had offered to guide those who would be setting said traps.

"So, everyone got everything they need?" he asked.

anarchist_queen: (yay!)
There was plotting going on. Specifically, Iranon was plotting to lock Leda and Polaris in a closet with a bottle of wine.

In the meantime there was more fun to be had. There were several nice trails around, some hot springs and mud baths, and a scavenger hunt.

And Smoke and Ember had invited anyone who wanted to to go for a ride. Actually Smoke had offered to let anyone who was interested, ride him. Leda still couldn't tell if he was actually confused at the laughter that offer generated.
anarchist_queen: (omg!)
Gasp and Shock! )

[For Momoko, James and Jon.]
anarchist_queen: (yay!)
One second the Void was creeping up on her, eating away at the world around her, leaving her with only this former mortal enemy for company, and the next...everything was back.

She stared at Stormy Waves for a moment, who was looking very confused. Even more so when she let out a joyful yell, kissed him, and then whooped, grabbed her scrying mirror and ran off.

"What just happened?" he asked.

Leda meanwhile called all her friends. She panned the mirror around from her perch at the highest balcony in the palace.

"Look!! Looklooklooklook! It's back! It's all back and I'm alive and everyone here thinks I'm either nuts or have had waaaaaaaay too much chocolate! Now we must party!"

[Momo, Karla, Jon, James. You knows who you is.]
anarchist_queen: (suspicious)
The portal dropped Leda off seemingly as easy as ever, despite the difficulties portalocity was having.

The minute she arrived, she placed calls to her friends. She'd been able to get no info from outside Faerie save the PR messages from Portalocity. Hopefully someone here would be able to help her.

She'd suspected Corwyn had been responsible for the Dragons vanishing. Until he vanished too.

[Leda is back to see what's what. Post is open.]
anarchist_queen: (pretty smile)
When Leda got her new mirror, the first thing she did was ask the mage who'd made it for her if she could play Angry Birds on it. He, not surprisingly, had no clue what she was talking about. The second thing she did was check to see if the "photos" she'd taken with her previous mirror were still accessible. They were. So she took a few of her new friends, and sent a message with all the photos to Momoko, Jon, James, and Karla.

This made them the first non-Fae ever, to see real images of Faery. Leda was breaking so many unwritten laws and written in stone customs and traditions it was not even funny.

No that's not true, Leda was very amused by it.

The photos can be found here. The captions are actually recorded "sound bites" Leda made to accompany each picture.
