Lady Whisperington

“A Seasonal Disaster”

 

                  Dear reader, by now most have endured the chaos of the first and ongoing Social Season. The panicked Ladies going to purchase an array of new dresses within town and regalia for the season meanwhile the men ready themselves with suitable and brilliant new tailcoats. However, do not allow these grandeur festivities and displays deceive you from the true gossip involved. 

 

“The Ruby of the Season”

After an assortment of young and marvelous Ladies were presented to the courts,  especially some of the few most regal selections; Princess Charlotte Augusta, Lady Helena Augusta, and Lady Cosette Ashford de Falstaff; a chosen gem was selected by Her Princess Imperial being the beautiful Lady Alexandrina Frederica of Pruvia. Her chosen attire and appearance in court caught the eye of nearly every male suitor making her a rather desirable choice for this Social Season. A much more appealing and tasteful Lady in comparison to the few others including and not limited to Lady Swanhilda who had an arse more ample than a donkey and allowed herself to fall apart before court causing the poor maids to hastily sweep up the destruction she caused. Another questionable Lady had to be the Miss Emerentia Kovachev who wore a rather revealing and might I say whorish garb. Let us not forget to also recall that Gwynevere with the tacky and horrendous hat. 

 

“The Running Haensewoman”

Not only did Orenian women participate in this year's Social Season but apparently a young woman by the name of Ida Mondblume sought to attend as well. Supposedly the woman is a Haense runaway and her family was caught moments before the Presentation of Debuts collecting outside the doors of the Augustine with crude words directed at several of the servants and the Majordomo. It is rumored the woman rudely questioned the Governess Anna Henrietta about her husband the Saint day prior and caused a ruckus with her family storming into the palace and demanding she be brought home. Meanwhile her face is pretty, it seems she is a troublesome package, it is probably best she returns home.

 

“The Ideal Couple”

It appears this year's ruby has found a match made within the seven skies. During the unionized waltz it appeared that the Lady Pruvia and Count Ashford de Falstaff found themselves breaking the routine to display a marvelous paired dance. It was told that the Count was unable to take off his eyes from his prized ruby during the entire ordeal as he hoisted her into the air. We hope to see more of the stunning couple further into the season. 

 

               Dear reader, let us pray that some of these Ladies fix their acts in the upcoming days less they wish to remain without a suitor and become wretched hags that own cats galore. Until next time, adieu!

"Another gossip column?" remarked the Lady of Cathalon, who had just arrived back at her estate after the opening of the season. A sheepish handmaid offered it to the woman, who tugged off her hat and exchanged it for the brief pamphlet. Once inside, she settled in the sitting room, reading over the piece. With a look of mild disgust on her face, she said to her daughter, "This one is even more wretched than the last. No doubt it is one of the ladies trying to dirty the reputation of her rivals. For shame."

Emerentia Kovachev looked at the paper with interest until it mentioned her, expression becoming something akin to horror at the statement made about her.

Margaux Helvets blinks as she finds a copy of the first publication of Lady Whisperington in her daily collection of various mail and letters.  "What's this?" she queried aloud and unfolded the parchment, before wheezing and her shoulder's deflating.  "Another one of these rumor tabloids?!" Another heavy exhale left the woman as she hastily skimmed it, though this one was more out of relief; the relief of not seeing her name written anywhere upon this paper of rumors. 

 

She proceeded to toss the paper into the hearth of her family's apartment in the Augustine, allowing for the flames to consume it.  "It's as if these papers are growing more and more insulting over the weeks... And I had hoped this Season wouldn't turn us Ladies into rabid dogs."

Fionn Castaway looked at the tabloid, about to throw it out, until the incident with him and his comrades at the palace was mentioned. He went slightly red and threw the tabloid away "That part could have gone a lot better. If only Father Ferdinand kept his mouth shut."

Lorilei Marijke curls on the edge of her seat whilst reading the paper, gasping at every twist and turn! "I love drama!"

Spoiler

A subtle tune played in the womans head as she read...

While the maids of the Rosebud House aided Alexandrina Pruvia in undressing from her extravagant gown, the Ruby of the Season would be given a pamphlet. Assuming to be another issue of Madame de Potins, the Pruvian debutante would signal for the maids to cease the undressing procedure. A rose undertone seized the pigmentation of the youth as she observed her appellation written in the commencing article. Alexandrina scrutinized the page, flabbergasted by the contents, but she could be seen beaming. Towards the conclusion, she would grimace at the ruthless comment regarding Lady Emerentia. As she flipped to the last page, she'd release a suppressed gasp! Without reading any further, she would hand the pamphlet back to the maid, rushing towards her bed chambers.

Skimming her eyes over the publication, the young housemaid Suzette parted her lips and offered no more than a disapproving tut. Folding the note, she then marched up the many stairs of Montfort House - delivering the paper to the hands of Princess Charlotte Augusta. @MunaZaldrizoti

Upon receiving the tabloid from Suzette, Charlotte Augusta seemed unsurprised. She, of course, couldn't be upset at the mentioning of her name among those who dazzled the court. However, the vulgarity of the latter paragraph was quite jarring for the princess, making her cheeks a bright enough crimson that one might think she had spoken the words herself!

Maisie d’Arkent would read the paper within the safety of her room. Taking a slow bite of her apple as she’d hand the paper to her Butler “I am glad I have good friends. Alexandrina really deserved the ruby title. She shines like the stars!” The girl would happily chirp.

The newly-appointed Majordomo, Milena Carrion, gasped at the sudden arrival of newspaper from a different gossip source. She had yet to hear of this 'Lady Whisperington'– only having known there to be a Madame de Potins. "Lady Amadea! Lady Anna!" Called out the Carrion as she were to hurry to find the Countess of Renzfeld and the Lady Governess, swift on her toes. "My! There is another one. Oh, I should hope these ladies not to be so terrible distraught over the hearsay. Miss Ida has by far had it the worst, dare I say it. And she is a fine lady too, quite fine!" @Ivoreyy@libertyybelle

Agnes simply scoffed at the notion that Alexandrina and Emil were the "perfect couple" but she liked Alexandrina's company, and would not say anything sour about the girl.
