[News] The Wedding of Aurora and Jinx

Discussion in 'UO Lake Austin' started by ElvesofLorien, Sep 10, 2004.

  1. <BLOCKQUOTE> For centuries, people have asked one question...
    What is my reason for being on this world?
    Many a sage hath searched for the answer.
    But they all failed in their attempts.
    There are those lucky people who do find the answer...
    They do not find it in ancient treasure troves,
    nor in the depths of secret dungeons or hidden by magic.
    Nay, they find it in places where they would least expect it:
    Drinking ale in a tavern and looking across the room,
    some even when they fight monsters on the battlefield,...
    or discuss tomes of ancient wisdom in some secret library...
    The light comes at unexpected moments...
    For at such a time, two souls come together,
    Two souls ...
    who should be.....
    as one.
    </BLOCKQUOTE> It is rare that such words find ultimate truth in their expression, but tonight was one such time. For it was this night that Lady Aurora Stuart and Jinx pledged their lives to each other, and in pure and genuine love they were united as one.

    The ceremony was held in the sanctuary of Wisp Dungeon in Ilshenar, before a shimmering ankh, and amidst a bounty of fresh summer flowers. Wisps floated and danced among the guests, whispering melodically as if to add their own enchanted blessing to the proceedings. <P ALIGN="CENTER">[​IMG]</P>

    The bride was beautifully attired in an ice white gown with an ice blue cape and hat. The groom was resplendant in black trousers and cloak and an ice white shirt, carrying a Staff of the Magi. Standing as maid of honor for the bride was Lady Eryn Darkthorn, and best man for the groom, Jimmy Pop Ali. The ceremony was officiated by ZigZag. The bride was escorted down the aisle and given away by Lord Nutty Professor. <P ALIGN="CENTER">[​IMG]</P>

    After a lovely invocation by ZigZag, Aurora and Jinx recited their vows, and rings were exchanged. They were pronounced husband and wife amidst applause, shouts of joy, and even a few fireworks. The guests were then directed to the Umbra moongate where another gate awaited to transport them to the reception. <P ALIGN="CENTER">[​IMG]</P>

    [​IMG]The reception was held in a rooftop garden, the centerpiece of which was a lovely pool and fountain. Guests seemed particulary attracted to the fountain, some few even shedding their attire to wade through the bubbles. Wine, beer, cider, and... beer were consumed in great quantities through the evening, prompting more fountain-splashing and clothes-shedding. However, the primary activity of the evening, and a most disturbing tradition to be sure, was that of beating the groom senseless at every opportunity. Jinx remained in good humor throughout, however, and even graciously offered a chance to those who'd not yet had a turn. <P ALIGN="CENTER">[​IMG]
    [​IMG]</P>

    Finally, the happy couple each took a moment to express their love for each other, and for their dear friends, and to thank those who had helped to plan, prepare, and share the happy occasion with them. Afterward, the party continued for a short time with drinking, laughing, and even some dancing (of which this reporter will always hold a fond memory), before the guests began to disperse to give the bride and groom some privacy. The honeymoon plans were not divulged.

    And so ended a perfect evening, though many a tear throughout Lake Austin might have been shed this night. In the bride's own words, "Today, history was made.... a prominent playboy and playgirl are taken off the market...for good." Lonely souls looking for love will needs look elsewhere, for there was no doubt this night that Aurora and Jinx will forevermore have eyes only for each other. For this reason their friends share in their joy. Congratulations Aurora and Jinx, we love you both! <P ALIGN="CENTER">[​IMG]</P>

    Oh god, the 3d.
    It hurts my eyes and makes my brain want to climb out of my head and lie down on the train tracks.

    That last pic is nice though.
     
  3. This is why I asked Elves to write the story. She has an incredible knack for setting the mood with words. Well done!

    We lose posts regularly that aren't viewed or replied to. This isn't one of the oldest posts, simply one of the oldest not yet deleted.

    Regretably, most of the people who attended are no longer on the shard, or even play UO. Even the Bride and groom have disappeared off into the sunset, away to some secret spot in a deep forest, perhaps never to be seen again.

    Wow....Slack and Tekkie are still playing? Are you two married yet? :p

    Aurora went to WoW, I went to SWG for a bit, then gave up gaming all together to focus on school. All my accounts are long since sold off, and hers went inactive, so our houses have probably long since vanished.

    It's good to see some of the old timers are still lurking about tho....I nearly fell of my couch when I saw Eryn posting...it's almost like a 5 year time warp.

    Cheers mates!

    Hi Jinxie!
    Oh yeah, Tekkers and I are long since married.
    He's a good little house wife but a bit shy on the intimate domestic duties if you know what I mean. Also he is a little bald so I make him wear a pink wig and heels around the house but he doesn't seem to mind.
    Nice to see you are still alive my friend. Have you completed your book lurnin? :scholar:
    Might be time for you to start some part time gaming! :thumbsup:
