MUDmarriage Announcements - Compiled by Maleah
If it's not one thing then it's another, hmm? There I was, happily
taking a cruise down the Courrain and relaxing in a lounger, when who
should block my rays? Melindra and Drahcir - a lovely couple but their
timing was just a teensy bit off if you know what I'm saying. Of course I
had to let the captain get back to steering his craft, so I made myself
another little notebook and took down their details.
I've left the notes they gave me below but would you believe that
everyone turned up to the wedding naked? Why didn't they invite me to that
one? It's not fair, I tell you! They had a best man (is there such a
thing, girls?) and a lot of guests. One thing about weddings is that
they tend to bring out the bachelors in numbers. I must have missed the
I had just finished taking the details down and was settling down to
top up my tan (courtesy of Soleil, lovely person with such a sunny
disposition) when who should I see but another courting couple on the prow of
the boat! Well, if I couldn't get to a wedding where people were in
the altogether, at least I could manage to get to this one. I moved
closer and made my introductions but alas I was too late again. They
weren't courting but were on their honeymoon. Corran was the groom at this
little event in the Gypsy Camp and Aarkel was the blushing bride. Of
course they chose the Tunnel of Love for the event, but I think they
hired the whole shebang out for a day instead of buying reams of tickets.
If you're planning a wedding here take my advice - block book it.
The event itself was marred by a great tragedy when Aarkel dropped and
sacrificed the wrong item but order was soon restored. Kostia, rather
resplendent in her robes of office, performed the ceremony and the
rings exchanged. There was little in the way of an after-wedding party and
would you believe they didn't save me any cake?
I could see that the tan just wasn't going to happen so I took myself
off to my office once again. Of course, as soon as the kettle was
boiling I was summoned to watch Preatemduala marry Shantaleigh in medlink.
A charming little ceremony, even if I say so myself, performed by Prae.
He's done so many that he is quite deft. He offered to walk me back to
my offices but occasionally you have to keep them hungry, eh? *giggle*
A few days later I received an invitation at last - proper vellum and
gold leaf trimmings! It must have been an auspicious sign, a wedding in
some place with true class. I wasn't quite expecting the top of a
lighthouse, but you can't account for tastes, can you? Kostia tied the
knots of Gena and Kalant while the rain lashed the windows. The couple
seemed not to notice and I had a word with Soleil so that a ray of light
came down at just the right moment. What else are friends in high
places for? Well, the confetti came in useful as well, of course :)
Sometimes the course of true love never runs smoothly. It took Lyna
and Oton a few days to arrange a minister for their own special ceremony,
but when they did they got Excrucior for one of his infamous services.
I've had to counsel people after these before now, but they seemed to
be so wrapped up in each other's eyes that they didn't notice. They
held the ceremony in a rarely used altar neat Dray'Mar accompanied by the
odd undead corpse and a few clan members. How sweet!
Well, it's near deadline time but I managed to find enough vellum to
tell you about Rina and Greyloc's marriage. It was a simple affair with
Cloem presiding and no other guests, if you can believe that. I've
checked my mailbox a few times but even I didn't have an invite. *sigh*
That's all for now folks - keep your wedding, heroing and reheroing
announcements coming in to me, Maleah@medievia.com. The more info you
send the more I can put up. Don't forget that I also now take Bloodline
babies for a new column. Having children? Let me know about it :)
March 17, 2001 - Drahcir and I (Melindra) were married in the wee hours
in the morning. It was a beautiful little ceremony with all of our
closest clan and town friends attending. The wedding was conducted by our
very good friend, Baartar, who was quite nervous but also very thrilled
to be doing his first wedding. The ceremony was held at A Beautiful
Waterfall in our social center, MedLink! (This was to keep that pesky spell
spam out of the room... And because we could not agree on a location
outside of MedLink.. hehe) Everyone invited was told to come *gasp*
NAKED! I think I was wearing a tiara and holding a red tulip. It was all so
cute. Gwarm had to hose Broksonic down and there were a few tears (from
Ycef... haha!), but no one was slain. We were almost done, but we had
to unlink to exchange rings. Viromanum was our ring bearer - what a
cutie! After all was said, done, and emoted, we asked Alteneos to echo an
announcement. He echoed, "Congratulations to Melindra and Drahcir,
Medievia's newest newlyweds!"
We missed everyone who could not attend. Juls, this means you. :)
May 8, 2001 - Corran and Aarkel were married in the Tunnel of Love in the
Gypsy Camp. (his choice). Vilbernatule was the best man (which is still
up for debate :) ), my son Kibou was the ring bearer. Grimarde gave me
away (against his better judgment I think). I was very disappointed
that my mud mom, Zeia couldn't make it. While we were waiting for the
ceremony to begin, I dropped and sac'd my diamond resonance bracelet
(instead of my extra diamond wedding ring in my inventory) this caused quite
a ruckus. Corran immediately took off to all of the donation rooms in
Medievia before he could see that I sac'd it instead of donating it.
While we tried to get the groom to come back, we finally find a God who
would marry us and teleport everyone. Thanks to a clannie's persistence
Kostia married us. She did a great job! There were lots of close friends
there. Several clannies popped in to debate whether Corran was the
right one for me or not, but in the end they gave their blessings (after he
threatened to pk them). I was all for a big pk fest after the wedding,
but there were zones to run and money to trade for. So, everyone split
up and went their own ways. We retired to the beautiful waterfall in
link, where we just basically sat there talking. at least that is all you
can publish! 8-) All in all it was the most memorable day I have had on
Written by: Aarkel
May 17, 2001 - Pratemduala was married to Shantaleigh by Prae by the sea
in Medlink. The couple are reported to be happily married and plan on
being so forever.
May 24, 2001 - On the Day of Honor, the second day of the Month of the
Drolem, Year 537, Kalant and Gena were wed by the goddess Kostia, atop
the romantic seaside lighthouse near Eldrick's Tomb. Despite the presence
of the lagmonster and a little rain outside, the happy couple were
married among cheers and confetti, and are now enjoying their honeymoon in
Trellor. Although a small wedding with few friends and family members,
the day will be remembered for a lifetime in the newly married couple's
May 27, 2001 - After two whole weeks of spamming prays and telepathing
avatars, Lyna and Oton were finally able to get mudmarried! They were
married outside of an obscure holosection temple near Dray'Mar, with an
audience of clannies and undead corpses. Thanks to Excrucior for
performing the ceremony!
(Excrucior notes that it was a simple wedding with but one death by
supernatural causes. Hey - I warned him!)
Fri, 18 May 2001 - Rina and Greyloc eloped after an exhilarating run of
the Coliseum. Cloem performed the ceremony on the slopes of the
mountains. It was a private ceremony, just the bride, groom, and Cloem.
