I have decided to make it public in the event that direct messages are deleted after a certain amount of time, and to provide everyone an opportunity to read it. Enjoy this blast from the past and my 2016 writing skills. Guests of the witch's wedding include: @Aisling Duval, @Alexei Sokolov, @Lelouch Vi Britannia, @Prezyan, and @Zafri Zackery. The two brides are, of course, @Eva-Beatrice and @Sintiya.)
*The following scene is set in the Meta World. Those who attended, whether human, witch, demon, or angel, were able to arrive quickly and safely. Humans invited from Orbis were able to pass through special gates that opened up in their respective countries. Magical beings invited had a similar convenience. With the scene set, let us begin!*
The cathedral was beautifully decorated to be the place of the wedding between Grand Duchess Sintiya of Finland, and the Golden and Endless Witch Eva-Beatrice from Rokkenjima.
A crowd of humans, witches, demons, and angels filled the cathedral, waiting for their arrival.
Fitting for a royal and magical wedding, it was not solemn or quiet, but cheery and noisy, brimming with activity. Those attending were seated according to their respective groups, each group conversing amongst themselves. The humans were seated below, the witches, demons, and angels on the balcony.
Those who were a combination of witch and angel, and witch and demon were seated in between. Among the witch group, we see the government members of both the Eastern Asian Republic and Rokkenjima, as well as others hailing from many different worlds.
The cathedral itself was guarded by the Chiester Sisters Imperial Guard Corps. Under their guard, none would be able to interfere with the wedding.
Among the crowd of humans, several conversations can be heard.
Lelouch: "Part of me still can't believe this is actually happening. Of course I'm happy for them, but a little worried at the same time."
Alexei Lysenko: "I agree. We're still not 100% certain as to what the Mariage Sorciere's motives are. A marriage between a witch and a human might put our world in jeopardy."
Zafrizackery: *flicks both Lelouch and Alexei in the back of the head* "That's my sister you're talking about, you know! I won't have you speaking about her in such a way at her wedding."
*Lelouch and Alexei look back at Zafrizackery, rubbing their heads.*
Lelouch: "Damn! Only anime flicks have that sort of power!"
Lelouch: "Anyways, I was just kidding, Zack! Haha. I'm sure we have nothing to worry about. R-right, Prezyan? Hey! Prezyan!"
*Lelouch looks over at Prezyan, who has fallen asleep in his chair. Whatever he's dreaming about seems to be troubling him deeply.*
*Prezyan was jostled awake as a result of Lelouch's shout*
Prezyan: "Who?! Wha?! Did someone say Narvan?!"
Lelouch: "Oh, nevermind. Just forget about it."
A deep sound reverberated through the cathedral. It was the sound of the several dozen Chiester Imperial Guards who stood in a line across the cathedral and stamped their heels in unison.
It brought about total silence in the cathedral even before the demons running the ceremony spoke.
Zepar: "Let us have silence, ladies and gentlemen!!"
Furfur: "Welcome to the wedding of Sintiya, the Grand Duchess of Finland, and Lady Eva-Beatrice, the Golden and Endless Witch of Rokkenjima!!"
Though they had asked for silence, the attendants who packed the cathedral welcomed the two demons with an enormous applause.
Bernkastel: "Oh, it's Zepar and Furfur."
Lambdadelta: "It truly is an honor to have those two host a wedding."
Solaris: "I agree..."
Zepar: "Well then! Let us welcome the lovely couple!"
Furfur: "Please give then a grand welcome and celebrate their departure!"
Zepar and Furfur: ""Come out, you two!! Walk the path of the shackles called marriage, which will bind you until the grave!!""
The big doors in the back of the cathedral slowly opened.
And then, the Grand Duchess and her beautiful bride came into view.
Hands linked, the pair slowly began to walk down the path lined with red carpet.
The Chiester Guards stood at attention along either side of that path, raised their adorned bayonets with mechanical precision, and made sure that no evil could block the path that the pair walked down. Chiester Sister troops that weren't part of the 'Honor Guard' were stationed all over the cathedral, hiding behind pillars and so on, and keeping an eye out for any intruders.
Behind Sintiya and Eva-Beatrice walked the Seven Sisters of Purgatory, who held long, ceremonial arms in the shape of the One-winged Eagle, the symbol of Rokkenjima. The servants of the Grand Duchess could be seen beside them as well.
The procession of Sintiya and Eva-Beatrice slowly walked down the path to the altar, and reached it.
Once more, the sound of the Chiester honor guard stamping their heels rang out loudly. Silence returned to the cathedral once more. Now the ceremony would finally begin.
Zepar: "People live for the sake of love! Therefore today, you have fulfilled the purpose of your lives."
Furfur: "Oh, how great is the power to live, the power of love! I pray that the brightness of this day blesses these two for all time!"
Zepar and Furfur: ""Come now! You who love one another! Make the oath of love!""
Sintiya swears to Eva-Beatrice, and Eva-Beatrice swears to Sintiya to support each other, both in sickness and in health.
Zepar and Furfur: ""You have now heard the pair's oath of love. Oh, let this oath be eternal!!""
The thunderous applause celebrated their marriage. After the oath, they would physically signify the bond. It was the exchanging of the rings.
The ring with the One-winged Eagle on it would become Sintiya's. In exchange, Eva-Beatrice would receive a diamond ring.
Zepar: "Yes, let the pair exchange rings!!"
The pair gently took the other's left hand and placed their respective rings on the other's finger.
With that, the pair were eternally bonded in holy matrimony.
The ceremony had ended without any problems and the reception was held inside the cathedral. For the first time, attendants of different groups were able to mingle. Nowhere else would you be able to witness this. Witches and humans, humans and demons, humans and angels, and perhaps the strangest of all, demons and angels, all conversing joyfully.
After the reception, each group went their separate ways. The humans, and some witches, returned to either Orbis or Rokkenjima, while the rest returned to their respective worlds.
(If anyone read this far, we thank you, lol. I'm aware it was a lot, but I wanted to make sure it was detailed and entertaining for you all. I should also mention that several lines were taken from the Umineko no Naku Koro ni visual novel. Credit for those go to the great Ryukishi07. Once again, thank you so much for reading. Hope you enjoyed. o/)
