    Default Dearest Fiends: The wedding of Prumathe Brignole and Sekhmet Octothorpe

    The temple of Message in Skullfort has been bedecked with garlands of white and red flowers in preparation for a very important event. Someone's getting married! No doubt the groomsmen are escorting everyone to their seats. No doubt the groom is awaiting the bridal procession, but that can't happen until everyone's here.
    While the guests arrive, Sekhmet is in whatever place is prepared for her to get ready. She is, of course, incredibly nervous. This is the big day. The fiendling smooths out her white dress and stretches her wings. Her tail is lashing back and forth. Her clawed hands are shaking. Her heart is racing and her breath is shallow. Phew. She was so excited before. She's not sure she can do this now that it's upon her. She runs a finger through her hair. Should she put it down, or leave it up in a ponytail? Should she redo her makeup? She ties one of the streamers the Hive gave her onto her left large horn. No, that knot is too messy. She redoes it a couple times, then repeats with the right. She needs to look her best. Everything needs to be perfect. This is the most important day of her life. She's not going to let it go poorly. There's also the question of her mother. Sapphira is loose in the world, somewhere. Sekhmet is terrified of the possibility that the archfiend might crash her wedding. There are all these worries… it's almost too much for her. She catches her breath, wipes some sweat from between her horns, and keeps preparing.

    It's a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the pterosaurs are singing, and yes, on a hill looking down over the village is a structure shaped like a giant black skull.
    The streamers of flowers help organize the many-pillared temple. Here are the seats, here is the aisle the couple will walk down, beyond this point is just decorations, and so on.

    Sekhmet has a sort of gallery in the sub-floors of the temple to get ready in.
    When everything is ready, she can go out the side exit, up the stairs, and on through the temple to the altar.
    But as for her worries, she should relax. And honestly, weren't there more important days in her past? Arriving in the nexus? Joining the hive? Finally meeting her mother face to face? Oh, no, don't think about that last one. The point is, this is kind of a formality. And it should also be happy day.

    "Are those streamers mismatched? Let me tie them instead." Spike suggests through their vox, and reaches out their tentacles to do so. The hive creature is visible and observable like anyone else, wearing the color-coordinated blue dress that Sekhmet dreamed up for them. It's not standard uniform, and it is a bit difficult to move in. But even they understand having some ceremony around an important partnership.

    "Yes, uh, please." Sekhmet allows Spike to redo the streamers. It's a bit odd to have her friend present and unveiled. Weird, but good. It's still weird how at their first meeting, Sekhmet almost was angry enough to immolate the Hiveling. Now they're pretty good friends. Spike's much better at dextrous manipulation than Sekhmet is anyway. Telepathically, Sekhmet asks another question, one she doesn't want overheard. May I ask you, a, uh, personal question? Were you the, uh, one who brought me into Eurus the, uh, first time? There's a sense of morbid curiosity and hope that the answer is not what Sekhmet expects. She'll try not to hold it against her alien bridesmaid either way, although she may not succeed.

    Default [Dearest Fiends] - Bridal Preparation

    It's a little uncomfortable in a couple ways to be out like this. Being behind that psionic veil is their rest state, and it takes a slight effort, like an unfamiliar posture, to be seen. And of course, they know little of weddings or friendship. But they do know something of friendship, and who knows, maybe this will help with infiltrating individual society someday.

    Spike quickly sets about fixing the streamers. The benefits of having limbs that don't end in those big claws. Despite all the help Sekhmet got with using them, they're no tentacles.

    No, that was Ein. The answer comes with some additional context. Ein and Spike are both from Eurus, both part of the same generation of Stalkers (5 of 7 that survived), with Ein being the oldest. They had different initial jobs: Ein would recruit people with interesting powers. They're the one who codified the stalker's ominous robe uniform, got the hive to use writing, rescued Spike when the hiveling became trapped underground once, and are peculiar in refusing to start using a vox when they were developed. What if it had been me?

    "It's done. Looks perfect."

    Prumathe is here. He kind of has to be; the bride can be late, the groom can't afford to be. He's wearing a grey tuxedo, with a white shirt and a black bowtie. He's pacing a little, impatient, nervous, and very nearly sick. Not quite, however. Prumathe is a dark-skinned man with thick black hair and green eyes, aged about twenty.

    More confident in their position here is the person acting as Prumathe's father, though neither Prumathe nor he actually know much of what that entails. A speech, possibly; he's written one anyway. This chap is a gnome, very fat, with a large nose. He wears a pale blue suit, with a bowler hat, and sits in a heavily stuffed white armchair with four short articulated legs emerging from underneath.

    Prumathe's family are also here, a mismatched bunch since he was raised in an orphanage. They're all neatly turned out, however.

    Sophie arrives after having been invited, wearing a modest but form-fitting blue dress and a light grey shawl around her shoulders. She was delighted when Sekhmet invited her to her wedding, so she made sure she could make it. After arriving, she will seek out either Sekhmet and Prumathe to give them her congratulations before the ceremony. She is also curious about Prumathe, whom she hasn't met yet.

    Prumathe's family might be here, regardless of how unusual it is, but Sekhmet's is nowhere to be seen. In this case, that's probably a good thing. They've been substituted for by friends (except for those serving as bridesmaids, who are currently helping her get ready): from work, from GLoG, and just random people Sekhmet's befriended (although there aren't too many of those). Together, the mix of different kinds of people here is probably astounding.

    In the meantime, Sekhmet gives Spike an incomprehensible sound in response. I, uh, don't know. She really doesn't, although she is somewhat relieved it wasn't Spike. "Can you pass me my veil?" She gestures to the veil sitting just out of her reach.

    Sophie can find and approach Prumathe, he's the very nervous looking young man getting a peptalk from Pontius, who Sophie might have met? I'm not sure. He's been to GLoG before, at least. The gnome can't help too much; he's never married. He'll move away if Sophie gets closer, however. Too many people will probably overwhelm Pontius more than he's already overwhelmed.

    Zee and Geneva are both here, of course. A pink haired human woman and a perfectly normal human female bride's maid.

    Geneva doesn't trust the hive. She's mostly sure that they're dangerous. Any assimilative threat is. But... this is her friend's special day and as good as she is at controlling her emotions, Geneva is keeping those negative thoughts fully in check. She passes Sekhmet her veil and smiles, waves of empathic calm wafting off her. "Here you go, Sekhmet. You look beautiful. Everything is going to be fine."

    Zee seems mostly oblivious to any hostility and is happily helping with preparations.

    Just to take some pressure off Sekhmet, Zee had done most of the legwork to get the catering arranged and set up.

    The bride had a whole lot on her mind.

    She definitely didn't need one more thing to worry about.

    And?

    She's ALSO glad that she isn't getting any impending doom vibes. She's pretty sure they aren't going to have to worry about Sapphira or Selekhael crashing the wedding.

    Sekhmet puts the veil on, looks in the mirror, and takes a deep breath. "Thanks Geneva. They're uh, probably waiting for us. We should, uh, get started." She starts to head up the stairs, stops to smooth out her dress (for the umpteenth time) and continues.

    And upstairs, the bridal procession arrives!
    Sekhmet leads, clad in an elaborate white halterneck gown, looking at once nervous and excited, cheeks blushing black the whole time. She's wearing her veil, and white streamers are tied onto her largest pair of horns, fluttering as she moves. Her wings are folded behind her, and her tail repeatedly betrays her mess of emotions. She tries to be elegant and stately as she walks up the aisle, but to be honest, she's not very good at it. It takes a lot of effort not to run up to Prumathe and hug him. He looks as nervous as she feels. But they're finally doing it! Her bridesmaids should follow behind her in their matching light blue dresses.

    The various friends here for Sekhmet include the people who first found her: Honeysuckle, Neverest, and Shockwave. Leah is here helping show everyone to the right places. And also marquess Kiun is here; I don't think she was invited, but there she is at the back, tail waving excitedly.

    The hive doesn't trust hardly anyone, but Geneva especially is ruled by her emotions and dangerous. Still, they find themselves on the same side again, Sekhmet's side. Hopefully she won't talk Sekhmet into blowing herself up again.

    The music starts playing. A classic tune.
    All eyes are on Sekhmet as she makes her way to join Prumathe at the altar.

    Prumathe gulps and turns to face Sekhmet as she enters, smiling widely and looking really nervous. He gets more confident and assured as she approaches; she really wants this, and it's actually happening and he wants it, too. She's not going to run away, and her approach chases off his worries and nerves. He taps his foot without even noticing it, counting the beat of the music.

    Sekhmet stands next to Prumathe, her heart racing, her feet shaking. It's happening! It's really happening! He isn't having second thoughts, he won't abandon her! She watches the officiator with eager anticipation. Her tail won't hold still. She reaches out a hand, hoping to find Prumathe holding it. She feels like she can barely breathe. Her shaking leg is betrayed by the rustling of her skirts. This is all so exciting!

    Prumathe smiles at Sekhmet, reassured she hasn't run off, and his hand will seek hers and hold tight. He's got nervous again now she's here, and is desperate to keep hold of her to reassure himself that this is, in fact, happening.

    The last notes of the bridal march fade away.
    The cleric steps up to the altar. Their vestments conceal the details of their appearance; they are only an agent of the divine (theoretically; in practice Alexis would have talked to the couple before the ceremony and everyone in the town knows them).
    Though the day is bright, the light seems to dim everywhere except around the couple.
    "Welcome, beloved family and friends. We are gathered here today, in Message's sight, to join Sekhmet and Prumathe in holy matrimony. I thank you all for coming to show your support of the bride and groom on this precious day. The two of them look forward to this beginning of their life together, a shared future, a happy family, a true and rich companionship."

    "A marriage is a voluntary and full commitment. It is a promise in the deepest sense, entered into with the hope that it lasts for life and the will to make it last. Our bride and groom must intend fully and without reservation to give themselves to the other in marriage, and I have full confidence that they do."
    "But every relationship will be tested and challenged...should anyone present know of any reason that these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace." Technically this provision is to account for legal complication, but any dramatic interruption would be fine.

    Assuming no one wants to steal the spotlight, the two are presented with the important question.
    "Do you, Prumathe, take Sekhmet to be your wife, to live together in holy marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, being faithful to her for as long as you both shall live?"

    "And do you, Sekhmet, take Prumathe to be your husband, to live together in holy marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, being faithful to him for as long as you both shall live?"

    Prumathe smiles at Sekhmet, squeezing her hand. He listens to Alexis' speak, and gulps nervously.

    There shouldn't be any interruption, so he nods. "Yes, I do." Then he nods more vigorously, coughs and repeats himself. "I do." His heart's fluttering and he's sure he's doing the right thing, but nervous anyway. He's not sure how that works, but it is, and... and he's getting distracted at his wedding. Concentrate on Sekhmet, and the priestess, and everything around you.

    Sekhmet squeezes Prumathe's hand a little tighter. "I..." Her cheeks are flushed black, her tail is twitching rapidly, her breaths are rapid and shallow. "I, uh..." Everyone's watching. It was so easy to want this when it was just the two of them together. But with everyone staring... No, she still wants this. More than anything else. "I do!" She vows, gasping the words out. It's like a weight has lifted off her, and here she is, standing at the altar with her fia... Her husband. She can't believe it! Her tail gently wraps around Prumathe in a sort of hug, no doubt visible to the assembled crowd. They've done it. They've finally done it.

    Prumathe smiles as he hears Sekhmet say the words that he was expecting, hoping and almost dreading to hear. He dreaded not hearing them more, however. And the tail is a reassuring presence.

    He reaches into a pocket and pulls out a ring, which he offers to Sekhmet. It's gold, with a bit of platinum to make it sturdier. It's silver-free, since he's aware that hurts Sekhmet.

    Sekhmet produces another ring from a discreet pocket on her dress and passes it to Prumathe, taking the ring from him at the same time. She slips the ring onto her third finger of her left hand, next to the one Prumathe gave her when he proposed to her. She's shaking with excitement. Her eyes meet Prumathe's expectantly, longingly. She knows what the next words from the priest will be. Right? Or is she forgetting something?

    "Then, by the power invested in me by the goddess, I pronounces you husband and wife!"
    "You may kiss."
    With that final pronouncement, the cleric steps back, it's the just the two newlyweds at the center of attention.

    Yes!
    Sekhmet can't wait any longer. She's just so happy and excited. In what might be a surprising twist, she seizes the initiative. She grabs her husband and kisses him on the lips, passionately. In full view of everyone, without seeming mortified or embarrassed. Wow. She must really not be thinking about what she's doing.

    Prumathe turns to Sekhmet and is surprised by her taking the initiative, but it's really good. Helps reassure him after the hesitancy of her 'I do', and he'll hug back and kiss back just as passionately as Sekhmet. He's not listening to anything the priestess might say, or whatever could be occurring amongst the guests. Sekhmet is the only thing he's concentrating on as he hugs and kisses his new wife.

    Sekhmet continues kissing Prumathe. She doesn't want to stop right now. Eventually, she lets him go and takes a deep breath. Wow. They're done with the ceremony. They just need to sign the marriage license and then go to the reception.

    The lights brighten as people applaud and cheer for the two of them.

    "Congratulations to the new Brignole couple as they start their life together, and the blessing of Message be upon their union. I hope that everyone gathered here will continue to support them in their marriage."
    You did it, Sekhmet.
    "Now, I invite everyone to join a celebratory reception." I believe at Sekhmet's home in the Good League of Good. Directions follow, in any case.
    Their, everyone can give the pair their personal wishes, and meet their friends' worrisome other friends.

    Prumathe breaks away and looks at the crowd. Oh, gods he just kissed Sekhmet when all those people were watching. But she's his wife, that's fine. Oh, gods. He's married.

    He's a little stunned and very happy right now, so he's just kind of standing there like a lemon. Hopefully Sekhmet has enough wits about her to pull him along to the reception.

    After a moment of watching Prumathe (he's cute when he's dumbfounded), Sekhmet tugs gently at his elbow. "We need to go to the reception. Everyone will be expecting us." Hopefully her husband comes along easily. Oh stars, her husband!

    The reception is indeed being held at GLoG, but not in Sekhmet's cabin, which wouldn't fit all these people. Instead, a picnic area has been set up near the lake, decorated with more flowers and streamers, and food catered by Trog's Tavern (Sekhmet totally forgot to arrange catering, but luckily Zee is one of her bridesmaids). There's a cake, of course, not exceptionally fancy. The budget was a bit tight. Now the guests are free to mingle, and to talk with the happy couple. Well, one happy and one apparently shell-shocked. But he'll be happy when he recovers, I'm sure.

    Prumathe snaps out of it quite quickly when Sekhmet pulls at him. "Right. Right! Reception. Right. I love you." Bit of a non-sequitur, but given the situation one that is expectable.

    He'll walk over, though he feels he should be floating. He's still looking a little shocked, but it's a very happy shocked.

    Sophie heads towards the young couple with a warm smile on her face. Her own wedding with Trick wasn't that long ago and she's quite happy Sekhmet and Prumathe's also went off well.

    "Congratulations, both of you. I hope this is the start of a new and wonderful chapter of your life. And it's nice to meet you properly, Prumathe."

    "I love you too." Sekhmet hugs Prumathe and with that they can get to the reception.

    "Thanks, Sophie!" Sekhmet smiles widely and squeezes Prumathe's hand. "This is such a great day! And I'm glad, uh, nothing bad happened." Her mother is loose in the world. She's surprised that Sapphira didn't crash the wedding. "Prumathe, this is Sophie. A, uh, counselor at GLoG."
