Just adding my two cents in re: artys feather I am Not so sure it's a great idea to summon him into a party of demons who are probably hostile to him with no warning. If we want his backup, probably better to bring him in disguise from the getgo, unless making a scene is what we're going for here.

I'm actually gonna advocate to bring Eligos. We're gonna need all the smooth talking we can afford when Jasper inevitably presses down on us.

You decide to write a new letter to Ornias, asking them to be your plus one. You could use a socialite on your side, and you don't think they'll stand for anything Jasper might try to pull. Plus, you just want to see more of them...and it sounds like they think the same about you. You send your letters off with a courier, hoping that Or doesn't already have a date - they're very popular after all.

Since the party is tonight, you might win Or over a little more if you buy them a nice outfit, and get yourself something to match. You have a few hours to go to the marketplace, so it's time to shop!

From what you know about Or, they like to wear dresses, skirts, and clothes that show a lot of skin, so that's as good a place to start as any. Jasper's dinner party is also a formal/semi-formal affair, so you're sure you can get away with more casual outfits than you'd usually wear to court. Your budget is pretty much unlimited, and you can spring for jewelry, too, if you like.

For Or, something that shows off shoulders and upper arms, elegant gloves, maybe asymmetrical bottom half.

No idea how to reflect that on Glad, but maybe some creative layering on the upper half to contrast? Colors should flow together between the two, maybe some cool colors.

We have a surprise tool or two to help us later we want to take, so we ourselves should wear an overcoat with deep pockets on the inside flap and soft, puffy padding on the outside to elude a casual patdown should it happen. (The feather is a no brainier, but even the knife won't be particularly bulky if it's oriented flatly in a deep enough inside pocket and obscured behind layers of felt and fur.)

You kill most of your afternoon in the marketplace, browsing clothes, looking for exactly the right thing to wear to Jasper's party. Finally, once you've figured it out, you pay the shop owner to have a courier deliver Or's outfit, and take your own home with you. You even stop for a bite to eat on the way back - because you doubt you'll be eating much at Jasper's.

When you get home, there's a package waiting for you with one of your servants. A box of chocolates, and a note.

Glasya-Labolas,

Thank you for getting Ornias out for the evening. And good luck.

Camio.

Well then. Word must be traveling fast.

You take a bath and get dressed in your new clothes, and by the time you're ready, it's almost time for Jasper's party. One last look in the mirror, and then you're headed down the stairs to the main hall of your estate.

To your surprise, Ornias is there waiting for you. They're wearing the outfit you bought them, and they look so stunning you're almost tongue-tied. They offer you a smile as you stumble down the last few steps.

"I thought I would walk over with you, since your estate is closer to Jasper's," they say. "But it doesn't exempt you from giving me a tour, you know."

"Of course not," you manage.

Or offers you their hand and you take it, guiding them out the front door. Jasper's isn't far, but the walk will let you have a conversation before you get there, which you're sure Or intended. You can make a strategy for dealing with Jasper, ask them who they think might be there, or ask them about themself, but you'll probably only have time to do one of those things.

strategizing would probably be a good move but i'm going to go with "ask or about themself". kind of a mood killer to invite someone out and then immediately go "ok how are we going to avoid jasper pulling some shit" imo

No. 926569 ID: c7f906

Ask them about if word's gotten around about what you allegedly saw happening to Jasper. Ask if it's beyond the realm of disbelief to stick to the alibi that you thought you were witnessing something completely different. Or don't ask, if that would be a stupid question.
>>
No. 926579 ID: c0641d

Ask about expectations for the party; express slight concern, and let Or steer the topic into strategy.

Quick inventory check; did you bring the angel feather, Camio’s card, and/or the angelic knife on your person? (It’ll be good for us to know ahead of time.)

Confide in Ornias that you've been so busy, the rumor mill has gotten away from you which is probably an amateur mistake.

INVENTORY CHECK:

Currently on your person you have Arty's feather, the angel-blade knife from your Uncle Tamar, a couple of your own calling cards, and a monogrammed handkerchief, which you never leave home without. You've left Camio's calling card at home, coming to the conclusion that he might not like to be forced to put in an appearance at Jasper's party.

"This is one of the first times I've been out all week," you say a bit sheepishly, glancing over to Or. You wonder how much they know about what you witnessed with Jasper and Eae, but that doesn't seem like a great topic to lead with. "And I'm afraid I've been a bit too busy to stay on top of the rumor mill. What have you been up to lately, Duchess?"

"Oh, you know, this and that," Or says, cryptically. "Hosting my tea group, of course, and refurnishing a wing of my estate for my human -"

"Your human?"

"My human lover, yes. They're very in vogue, you know," Or says. They aren't wrong - taking a human lover has become something of a trend in the past decade or so, though it's still a little subversive to let them live in Hell with you. Considering how many demons still think of humans as a snack, and all. "Camio has one too. She's very...spirited."

They don't sound like they like Camio's human very much, perhaps for obvious reasons. You decide to change the subject.

"Speaking of Camio, he sent me chocolates for inviting you along tonight."

"Did he?" Or laughs, high and genuinely amused. "That's very funny. I suppose he's glad to be staying at home. There was some unpleasantness between Eligos and Murmur at tea this week, and he knows as well as I do how much they love to escalate with one another."

"Eligos and Murmur are coming?" you ask, just to be sure.

"I'm sure they are. My cousin never misses a dinner party, and Murmur never misses an opportunity to be petty in public," Or says, with another laugh. "Hopefully they won't drag anyone else into their little pissing match, but that remains to be seen."

"Do you know who else will be there?" you ask. Might as well seize the opportunity to talk a little about the party itself, while you have time. "I've never been invited to one of Jasper's parties before."

"Well, it changes depending on who happens to have prior engagements, but I expect at least a few of the regulars will be there. Even though the invitations went out on such short notice," Or says. So you weren't the only person who got your invitation just this afternoon. Interesting. "Some of your siblings are usually there, at least Vetis or Shax, and my little group...I expect Foxglove will be there as well, they've been a bit enamored of Jasper as of late. Beyond that, who's to say?"

You catalog the information in your mind, nodding as Or speaks. Depending on which of your siblings are there, and who they're with, you might have more allies at the party than you thought. You'll have to keep an eye out for them.

You want to ask Or more, but the two of you are already through the gate of Jasper's estate and making your way up the front steps. A few other demons filter inside before you, and when you get to the door, you're surprised to find an angel in a servant's uniform holding it open for you.

"Welcome to Lord Abbadon's home," they say, in clumsy, yet fluent, demonic. "How shall I announce the two of you?"

"Prince Glasya-Labolas Hethson and Duchess Ornias Bathinson," Or says, taking charge immediately, perhaps sensing how tongue-tied you are. They sweep you along on their arm as the servant announces you to the main hall, a few demons looking curiously your way.

"That servant was an angel," you murmur, leaning close enough for them to hear you.

"All of Jasper's servants are," Or replies matter-of-factly. "Shall we get something to drink? You look like you need it."

Considering what we know and how Jasper manhandled Eae out of the room, I very much doubt that.

These guys are most likely part of the staff/subordinates of the angel ambassador that Abaddon somehow convinced to basically fund his all-you-can-eat-buffet.

And if true I wouldn't be surprised at all if they're disgusted with what's happening but can't cut loose and spill the beans for one reason or the other.

maybe have like ONE drink, the last thing you want to do is get shitfaced at the party of a dude who may or may not want to kill you. also jasper is a weirdo, who knows if he's putting angel blood in the wine or something.

can we look around and take stock of who's here? are there any angels around?

...It's way too fucking early to start acting on unproven assumptions. We JUST got here, dammit. We don't have enough information about Jasper's evidently entirely angelic staff to do anything that bold and reckless.

We should bid our time and collect as much information as possible on pretty much everything Jasper related as possible, including his staff.

And then we should wait for an opportune moment (or make one when not at this party!) to act on it.

And hopefully we'll be a helluva lot more subtle than the end of the last thread.

(not saying that chasing Jasper was the wrong move, but we were super obvious about chasing and evidently abandoning him to Eae.)

As for what to do...

Honestly, just mention to Ornias that after what they've personally told you about Jasper's parties, you are mostly sure the drinks are quite heavenly in nature and thus you will not partake.
