Today had been a day long in the making, and many people had had a hand in it. The mansion's grand ballroom was as elegant as it had ever been, decorated as it was for a Baskerville wedding. The doors had all been flung open onto the balcony outside, and stairs led down into what would be the reception area afterward. With spring in the air and the gardens blooming, the tables had been set up on the grounds outside. Everything was surprisingly perfect, considering the habits of the mansion's Will; perhaps she, too, was looking forward to the wedding.

[ ooc; i'll set up several threads, sort of like the pandora meeting post. also lmao short post sorry guys. post away! ]

Liam knows how to have fun!

[Liam is dressed in the coat that Break fitted for him, with the rest of his clothing as formal as he could find in his wardrobe. The coat fits well, the shirt underneath is a slightly-too-large loaner from Knave, and the slacks the mansion finally coughed up into his wardrobe. He managed to find a white cravat, and is wearing a monochrome pair of earrings as well.

He's discomfited with being here because he doesn't know the bride or groom, so he's hanging around the outskirts doing his unnoticeable thing.]

Re: Liam knows how to have fun!

[Gwen doesn't know them personally but it seems as a good an occasion as any to get a feel for the general population of the mansion. She'd found formal clothing in her closet and was dressed in a fashion that mirrored her male counterparts as she picked her way through the room before ending up standing beside Liam, just watching the dance floor.

[Liam was paying attention to the bride and groom dancing and then all of a sudden--

oh god glen baskerville right beside him

But is it the same one from the utterly terrifying conversation in the kitchen? It's not the one getting married, since he was just watching that dance.

He's going to just opt for standing there trying not to panic. Surely even a Glen wouldn't start something at a wedding!]

[Notices how twitchy the man beside her seems and blinks for a moment before turning to face him.]

Is something wrong?


Wait... That tone is...

Is this a woman?

Liam glances at her, a bit intrigued but also still wary.]

I thought you were someone else. I, ah, don't believe I've met you personally.

There seem to be quite a few other versions wandering around, yes.

I'm Gwen Baskerville, and you are?

I believe there are different versions of everyone, including myself.

[He offers a polite nod.]

Liam Lunettes.

It seems that way, yes.

I didn't think to see a female version of Jack, though.

[You're not so far Liam that Vincent does not notice you trying to be a wall flower.]

My! And Mr. Liam is among the living! [Guess who saw Break's little emotional break-down?]

[The familiar voice startles him--in part because he honestly hasn't seen a Vincent since he arrived. He blinks at the words, their meaning.]

Vincent... Yes, I am. You know of what happened at Yura's mansion, then?

[ooc: There was an emotional breakdown? omglink]

I have an idea. I fear I may have been pulled before the grand finale so to speak. [He gives Liam an arch look, reaching to touch Liam's cheek with inquisitive fingers as he leans in a little.] My, my, how glad Mr. Hatter must be!

[The touch makes him uncomfortable and he leans back slightly.]

I'm afraid I never found out the outcome, either. I was brought here shortly after I woke.

[And he has no idea whether Xerxes survived, so he doesn't address that.]

[Vincent just laughs at Liam's discomfort.]

Such a pity. How do you feel any comfort not knowing the fate of friends?

[That isn't something Liam wants to discuss with anyone, much less Vincent.]

Did Gilbert survive?

[Perhaps petty, but he keeps his voice concerned.]

[Oh dangerous territory Liam. Vincent's eyes only slightly narrow but his smile remains, as sharp as a knife. He chuckles and shakes his hair. Oh, so you like to play with me do you?]

If he didn't, I would at least know his life was not on my hands. He never be such a fool as to risk his life for someone undeserving.
