[rest of title that wouldn't fit in the editor:...While Lennidhren longs to dance.]
Unfortunately however, this floating bunch of blueberries was not quite the right height for Vanita to add it to her novelty hat collection. It would’ve fit Alduine or another of the tallfolk though!
Vanita hit level 30 this weekend and commenced skirmishing! Alas, my burgling skills are quite lacking after having not played Van in so long, so the poor Hobbit-lass died once before completing both Gondamon and Amon Sul her first time through them, yesterday. But she made it through both without a problem today, so perhaps I’m catching on to what works for her. Still definitely not my favorite class, but I’m determined to at least get her within range of those level 40 crafting quests…She’s my Tinkerer, and it would be lovely to have her cooking and jeweling at levels high enough to support the rest of the alts.
Lennidhren, meanwhile, had a lovely time at Mar Vanwa Tyaliéva’s “Hearts and Tarts” concert last night, and has determined that as soon as the spring festival opens she’ll be making the rounds of the dance leaders and picking up some dance moves other than tap-your-foot-and-clap. It was such fun watching the more skilled dancers among the guests, synchronizing their moves all in a row towards the end of the party:
Of course synchronization isn’t limited to dance moves…
The MVT band delighted the crowd with a great range of love songs accompanied by lots of, um, entertaining commentary from Ingolemo and Maehymn. A neverending supply of fruit tarts and fine spirits delighted the crowd as well.
In between sets, we were treated to some solo and duet pieces from Fionnuala (accompanied on one by Maehymn and another by…um…either Dyjia or Sanjali, I think) and Ingolemo, dedicating his to…a certain Warden. That was fun, as I’ve been enjoying Etaoin’s and Ingolemo’s stories so much in their blogs!
My favorite part of the program was Fionnuala’s musical setting of the tale of Beren and Luthien. That’s truly an outstanding love story in any media, and I thought her music enhanced it beautifully!
I also rather liked Ingolemo’s version of Beren and Luthien, “Eldar Girl,” which followed Fionnuala’s more traditional version of it. Alas, it was during this song that my client decided to crash. I think I was taking too many screenshots and stressed the computer out… So I didn’t get to hear the end of it.
The band did a great job, but the intensity of their performance apparently resulted in some audience casualties…like this Hobbit in her undergarments…
And this poor guy picked a bad spot to faint or trip or something…
But overall, no one sustained any grave injuries and I do believe all had a great time.
Thanks to the fine folk of Mar Vanwa Tyaliéva for putting on another wonderful event!
