"She's your fiancée!?"

"Oh, weddings are the best!"

"We'll sing the song for her too!"

They then begin to bombard Steve with many questions, eager to learn more about this mysterious woman. A few minutes later, Segel and his siblings return to the party with the directions the captain requested. But instead of telling them where the Forum is, they yank on the adventurers' fingers and guide them through the Faculty.
____________

The Forum is a multi-story section of the Faculty that consists of many rooms, large and small, that are suited for meetings or all types. The one where Nadzieja's festivities will take place is located in the middle of it; 12 meters in height and 40 meters in length, this room can handle at least two hundred people. Many tables have been placed next to each other to form six rows that are lined up across the room. Resplendent handeliers hang from the ceiling, basking the adventurers in magical yellow light.

Most of the guests—many of them being the clansmen the party left just an hour ago—are already present and taking their seats. They laugh and they chat, elated to be here. As for Nadzieja, she's right by the entrance, welcoming each and everyone of her guests. When she sees the group of fairies, she widens her eyes in surprise and smiles to the adventurers.

"I had no idea there were so many of them," she says. "Welcome!"

The fairies are surprisingly on their best behavior and wait for someone else to talk first.

Konrad's eyes dance from Nadzieja to the room full of food and beer, and back to her, standing in the clean robes he wove carefully for her.

He comes forward to shake her hand or to hug as the case may be. "Thank you for waiting for us! We managed to get dry before we came. Actually I was a little worried that you already started."

DM note: she shakes his hand.

He looks beyond at the room again. "This is a very enticing display. I'll be sure to thank Jaropelk for putting it on."

"If you're able to find him," Nadieza says while gesturing at the room full of people behind her. "He avoids any kind of attention like the plague."

"Well, if I can't find him, please thank him for me, will you? For clearly giving 110% to perfect the arrangement."

She nods. "Of course."

"We hired some of them to be the crew for our ship but as part of the deal we brought the rest of the family too. Let me introduce them. First the crew. Steve clears his throat and starts introducing the fairies one by one as he points them out. "This is Segel, our First mate. Followed by Waffle, Piffle, Ember, Hiccup, Truffle, Gabby, Panna, Cobb, Dayap, Bilolo, Flapjack, Sunny, Scrambled, Fritta (short for Frittata), Quiche, Hash, Omelet, and Bacon. These three handsome dudes are The Three Jacks, Pepper, Monterrey, and Colby (written individually as Pepper Jack, Monterrey Jack, and Colby Jack). And that lot over there are Jetty, Apple, Lime, Bowline, Fritter, Lemon, Milkshake, Sausage, Cookie, Tiramisu, Eclair, and Rainbowsherbert." He pauses to catch his breath and let the named fairies say hello before he continues.

"Now the rest of their brothers and sisters are Cobbler, Cupcake, Banana, Dumpling, S'more, Sundae, Pudding, Donut, Fudge, Caramel, Cannoli, Ambrosia, Blondie, Cinnamon, Chestnut, Pecan, Peanut, Custard, Carrot, and the one sneaking the jerky is Bonbon. I don't know why you bother to sneak them Bonbon, we all see you do it!

Anyway, the ones in the corner on the right are Marshmallow, Meringue, Oatmeal, Panocha, Cashew, Parfait, Persimmon, Hazel (short for Hazelnut), Pineapple, Scotchy (short for Scotcharoo), Sopai (short for Sopaipilla), Strawberry, Rhu (short for Rhubarb), Peach, Walnut, Coco (short for Coconut), Hotdog, Garlic, Pea, and Anise.

The three fashionable ones in the middle there are The Three Cherries, Cherry, Cherimoya, and Tellicherry. They make all the clothes for their family; that's why they all dress so well.

And the ones on the left are Hing, Basil, Tabasco, Berbere, Bergamot, Thyme, Cinnamon, Periperi, Lavender, Tarragon, Tamarind, Ginger, Sassafras, Paprika, Cayenne, Habanero, Bell (short for Bellpepper), Plum, Currant, Chocolate, Pome, Apricot, Clementine, and last, but certainly not least, Pistachio!

Everybody, this is First Nadzieja Zerva, leader of Myr and head of Clan Zdetermiwa. Remember, only her friends call her Nadia, so make sure you do so as often as possible.
" He looks at Nadia and gives her the mission accomplished thumbs up, which looks twice as silly in his Silly Hat which he changed into when Nadia wasn't looking.

As Steve introduces the fairies one by one, he notices that Nadzieja's composure slowly begins to erode away. It's clear to him that she's wondering whether or not he's really going to do this, and when she realizes that he is, she momentarily widens her eyes. She recovers her smile quick enough and welcomes each and everyone of the fairies without showing any sign of displeasure.

The fairies themselves are overjoyed to meet the First of Myr and they all fly up to her to either bow, shake her hand or compliment her. A few of them even take fantastic poses when their name comes up. As for Bonbon, he quickly disappears under one of the table with his piece of jerky when Steve rats him out. Several of the clansmen find this whole scene hilarious.

It takes a few minutes before Steve manages to introduce all of his friends, which nets him a few awestruck looks from the people seated near the entrance. Even Amber and Fluffle seem impressed. As for Nadzieja, she's feeling quit overwhelmed by all this, although she can't help but also chuckle at Steve's antics, especially when all the fairies say hello to her using her name.

"Hi Nadia!"

"Nadia is such cute nickname!"

"Nice to meet you Nadia!"

"Hello Nadia! Thanks for inviting us!"

"You're so beautiful Nadia!"

The young monk smiles at her small guests and says, "Welcome everyone. Please, take a seat. We prepared a table for you, but you can sit anywhere on the tables as long as my comrades are okay with it."

"Thank you!"

The fairies disperse across the room and go meet the rest of the clansmen present here.

"Awesome! Hello comrades!"

"Can I sit on your head?"

Mihai looks back and forth between Hazel and... Nadia, wondering if the latter will really be wearing a Fairy on her head for the night.

Konrad smiles at the whole affair with the fairies, laughs a little at the bacon smuggler, and follows the group to take an empty seat close to where Nadzieja must be sitting, whatever appears to be the head of the table or the focus of the arrangement. His heart sinks each time Steve, or one of the fairies, uses Nadzieja's Imperial name.

He looks around the room for Zenon Duma and his sister Angelika, and Jaropelk.

"Me and the Vulcan Singers are planning some music after we eat. Were you planning to talk at all?"

"Jaropelk was just going to say a few words to kick off the evening," the young woman says while examining Steve's guitar. "You might want to wait until everyone has eaten before you sing; my people aren't very attentive when they're hungry."

"Good to know. I'll doodle around on my guitar if I get the hankering to start early but I won't call anyone up until the food is done. Speaking of which, I'm starving. Introducing a hundred fairies is hard work!" His hat goes off, playing a popular dance tune from Highwind. "Oh no! Eleven already!" He salutes her and walks in to find a seat.

The sudden song playing from Steve's hat startles Nadzieja and she instinctively steps away from him and raises her fists, but lowers them as quickly as she can when she realizes what happened. Somewhat embarrassed by her overreaction, she points to a table at the other end of the room and says, "I, uh, I reserved this table for you. I'll join you in a moment."

Amber chuckles as she passes by the young First, and with Florolf in her arms and Fluffle on her shoulder, she makes her way through the crowd. It seems the party is sitting right next to the Zerva family and the Administrator of Odwaz, Anastajza Zawistowski. They greet the party members as they sit down next to them.

Amber doesn't hesitate and takes the chair right next to Saria and Volwind and starts a conversation with them. Fluffle joins their conversation while Florolf decides to sit on Mihai's lap for some reason. He's purring.

There is no sign of Duma or her sister. As for Jaropelk, Konrad has no idea what he looks like.

Konrad:

Konrad nods to the Zerva folks. "Now you must be very proud," he says, referencing something he said to them earlier in the spectator seats.

The monks nod back at Konrad, beaming with said pride. "You can say that again," Leon replies.

When Nadia lowers her fists, Mihai adds - "I don't know, i think i'd hit it just to be safe."

Then as they all sit, Florolf sits on Mihai's lap. Florolf sits on Mihai's lap. Mihai notices Florolf has for some reason just sat on his lap. And is sitting on his lap. Purring. As he sits on his lap.

Mihai is unable to fully process what is happening, but it seems that Florolf is indeed sitting on his lap. His jaw drops a little, but he tries regaining his composure, and proceeds to try and pet the Carbuncle sitting on his lap.

The carbuncle closes his eyes and purrs louder, apparently enjoying Mihai's touch very much. He lowers his ears and even wags his tail a little.

"This... i, uh..." - he tries to come up with something - "...he hasn't gone anywhere close to the Cider yet, so..."

He keeps petting.

"Well, does it matter now? At any rate, this is called a 'pet', friend Mihai. You 'pet' the pet, it makes you feel better. It's an enjoyable experience." He smiles, teasing the man to get past his own lingering disappointment.

The discussion is interrupted by Master Avalon who has just left his seat and is now standing next to the adventurers. This catches the attention of the youngest people of the group, but the other monks seem to have been expecting it. Master Avalon extends his hand to the three champions for a handshake and tells them, "You helped Nadzieja today, and for that, we are very grateful. Thank you."

The old monk's voice is warm and his eyes a little misty. Leon, Valor and Suzy all smile to the adventurers, even Konrad.

Konrad treats the handshake with the reverence of a starving man who just received a cup of water.

"I was happy to. You're very welcome."
