Dewsong deRosa, 2/15/2003, Daerlynn Concert Series, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

It has been 371 years, 221 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.
It is the 6th month of Arhat the Fire Lion in the year of the Silver Unicorn.
It is currently summer and it is mid-morning.
You feel somewhat certain it's somewhere about the Anlas of Hodierna's Blessing.

It's quite cloudy and a bit muggy.

[Arthe Hollow Inn, Common Room]
The room is filled with long, low tables and stools, where several people sit eating hearty bowls of Arthe Hollow's popular lamb stew. A large stone fireplace dominates one wall. Daisy Burdock, the inn's cook and waitress, crosses the room carrying a precarious arrangement of bowls and plates. She stops briefly to tease and joke with a regular customer or glance out the window. A sign is posted prominently next to the archway. You also see a crate filled with roses, a pink candle, a small oval table holding a silver tray with some stuff on it, a wooden menuboard, some wooden stairs, an open doorway, and a polished wooden bar with some stuff on it.

Concert

Daerlynn recites:

"Hello, everyone, and welcome!"

Daerlynn recites:

"Tonight is a special night, I hope... a night filled with Romance and Love for you and your special one..."

Dewsong leans against a polished wooden bar.

Daerlynn quietly says, ".. or more..."

Dewsong grins at Daerlynn.

Heston points her silver dragon at a pink candle and a flame shoots from the creature's mouth, making the candle quickly catch fire.
The burning pink candle glows brighter until it begins to burn steadily.

Uditoc cradles Letifera in his arms, their lips meeting in a tender kiss.

Daerlynn recites:

"I would respectfully ask, in deference to the performer, that we keep talking to a minimum, and waving of your roses at a minimum as well..."

Daerlynn recites:

"There are roses in the crate if you haven't gotten one, and drinks, and CHOCOLATE!"

Daerlynn recites:

"Like I said, if you need to move, ummm.... well do it under the tables, where we all can't see!"

Daerlynn blushes furiously!
Dewsong begins chortling at Daerlynn.
A bright light resembling a glowing eye flares on Dewsong's brow for a moment before fading away.
A burning pink candle flutters slightly.

Daerlynn recites:

"Tonight, we have a special performer, who sang at I believe the second Arthe Dale concert!"

Dewsong nods to Daerlynn.

Daerlynn recites:

"The only one NOT in Arthe Dale, by the way, due to Sorrow's War!"

Dewsong says, "even though it wasn't in Arthe since we couldn't get there at the time..."
Daerlynn grins.
Dewsong chuckles.

Daerlynn recites:

"Mykk fought his way through Sorrow's army to attend!"

Mykk says, "Cloudcrest helped."

Dewsong says, "I even remembered to show up..."
Dewsong grins.

Daerlynn recites:

"Anyway, I hope you all have your roses and perfume, so we can introduce the most elegant and romantic Bard of the Roses"

Daerlynn yells, "DEWSONG!!!"

Dewsong smiles as the room erupts with white, red, and pink rose petals upon his introduction.

Dewsong smiles and sweeps his elegantly plumed hat from his brow as he bows to you into an outrageously deep pose, returning it with an exagerated flourish.

Dewsong adjusts his plumed hat.

Dewsong says, "I hope everyone has their lips ready... "
Dewsong grins like an idiot.

Shenney just blew Dewsong a kiss.

Dewsong exclaims, "Let's get things started tonight with a rousing chorus!"

Dewsong says, "everyone that can, please sing with me, "The Kissing Song""

You listen with appreciation as Dewsong plays a flashy melody with an elegant stroke of the strings.

     And a rose of course
     And sometimes even a smile,"

     Day to day and bar to bar
     A'making women smile."

     From every guild and walk of life

    "And wherever we went
     Here's just what we sang,"

     A kiss for all the others"

    "I kissed you once,
     You kissed me twice
     Here's to avoiding your lover!"

Dewsong winks.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "There's no need to take offense
     Or even to take it serious
     Life's a wild ride, so we
     Might as well have some fun"

Daerlynn says, "It appears the fog has rolled in...."

Daerlynn rubs Dewsong gently, massaging his muscles.

Daerlynn exclaims, "It's a kiss your sweetie break!"

Niteshiver says, "dews concert"
Daerlynn smiles.
Shenney says to Daerlynn, "We could tell embarassing Dewsong stories in hopes that it'd unfreeze him enough to silence us."
Roboson says, "we could dress him up funny...and write on him"
Kaity says, "I have a label."
Roxana says, "Well...we could write on him."
Roxana says, "But I think we should be patient and just wait."
(Shenney scribbles the address to her house onto the palm of Dewsong's hand.)
Shenney hums an innocent tune.
(Niteshiver writes Roxanas address on Dewsongs palm.)

Dewsong just left.
Dewsong just arrived.
Dewsong pants.
Dewsong says, "well, I must say... that wasn't pleasent..."

     She smooched me something fierce
     Her husband, the barbarian, didn't like it very much"

    "He stood and drew his fearsome broad,

     Sorry, but that's simply not the way I play"

Dewsong grins.

Dewsong says, "Thank you all for that great chorus, and for coming out this fine evening for another installment in the Nights of Romance series, I'd tell you which one it is, but I'm afraid I've lost count... "
Shenney says, "Many"
Dewsong grins like an idiot.
Shenney grins at Dewsong.
Daerlynn beams at Dewsong!

Dewsong says, "and thanks too for staying through our... difficulties..."
Dewsong chuckles.


 

Dewsong says, "It's been quite a while since the last one, and to be honest, we probably wouldn't be bringing it back tonight if it weren't for a certain bardess tricking me into it..."

Dewsong says, "So I suppose you might want to give Daerlynn a round of applause for dragging me back into it..."
Dewsong grins.

Dewsong says, "Anyway, I try to make all of these concerts a bit different in one way or another."

Dewsong says, "Tonight, I present to you not just a collection of some of my love songs, but a narrative through song, "The Story of a Heart" if you will..."

Dewsong says, "While there will be plenty of cheerfull sappiness, I hope you'll forgive the occassional more somber notes."
Dewsong smiles.

Dewsong says, "Some of these songs are old, some new, and some I've even been told are classics... which surprises me to no end... "
Dewsong chuckles.

Dewsong says, "But as you fine folks didn't come to hear me ramble on, I guess I'd better get on to the music"
Dewsong grins.

Dewsong says, "This first song is one of my eldest works, one of the first I ever sang in this area. "

Dewsong says, "one of the hardest lessons of love is when to say goodbye"

Dewsong smiles inquisitevly at you, his eyes filled with some unanswered question as he plays an aimless air on his rosewood lute.

Coaxing the notes into a clean, dulcet tone, an aimless melody floats from Dewsong's rosewood lute.

Dewsong says, "For Love is a Weeping Rose"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Have you ever tasted the starlight?
     Have you ever ridden the fog of a misty morn?
     Have you ever kissed a dream?
     Do you live high and free, chained to your soul
        Or is your soul in chains?"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Love is a hard habit to break
     But one we must
       for love's sake"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "For love is a weeping rose
        Sweet and fragrant,
        And free to all its slaves."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And love is a newborn star,
          Bright and clear
          And accostomened to darkness."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Have you ever seen the man at the bar
        sobbing his summer tears into his empty glass?
     Have you ever seen the woman across the way
        Her jaw clenched 'round a cigarette that she forgot to light?"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Have you ever seen the children laugh and play
        while one of them is crying ink?
     They can understand each other
         even if no one else can see them"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "For love is a weeping rose
       Red and wet like a loved one's lips,
        or a lover's eyes."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And love, love is a gentle rain
       if you stand about in it,
        then no one can see you cry"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And love, love is tree
        Gentle, and green
        coming back year after year
        heartache after heartbreak
        amidst the gentle rain and newborn stars."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Because love,
        Love is a weeping rose
           it needs someone else to cry."

As Dewsong strums his rosewood lute, a slow ballad glides through the air with a clear, harmonious tone.
Dewsong finishes playing on his rosewood lute.
Dewsong smiles.
Dewsong bows.



Dewsong smiles.
Dewsong says, "I have to admit, with only an Anlas or so to work, choosing amoung all my love songs was a bit of task... "
Dewsong grins.

Dewsong says, "This next tune is about a time after I met Klinara, in that giddy rush of the begining of what was to come... "

Dewsong says, "High on Your Love"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "On a warm summer's eve,
     I gazed up to the moons
     And there I saw the hawk"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "He was flying
     High and free
     Just soaring and whirling
     Dancing and twirling
     Livin' it up high,
     High in the mountains"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "For a moment,
     I so envied that bird
     Then I felt your fingers in my hair
     And when I turned back,
     And gazed in your eyes
     I felt my heart quiver and shake"

Dewsong smiles.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And then it burst!
     And it flew high-eyai-igh
     So very high-eyai-igh
     High on your love"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And as we kissed,
     Cuddling tender in the night
     My heart and soul were up in your eyes"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Soaring so high-eyai-igh
     Higher than any bird
     So very high-eyai-igh
     High on your love"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And the best part is
     Unlike that poor hawk
     You're always in my arms"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "'Cause we fly high-eyai-igh
     So very high-eyai-igh
     High on our love
      
     High on our love"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "High on our love..."

(Dewsong whispers, "I'm so high on your love..." into his wedding band, a single triumphant tear coursing down his cheek.)

Dewsong just kissed a narrow jade wedding band inlaid with a twining golden rose!



Dewsong says, "Of course, one can only take so much giddiness before you start getting a little too silly... even for a bard..."

Dewsong says, "So, of course, that's just what I did, and out of such rampant silliness was born this next song... "
Dewsong grins like an idiot.

Dewsong smiles as he begins plucking out an spritely dancing melody on his rosewood lute.

Dewsong says, "One Fine Day"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "One fine day
     I was a-strumming my lute
     And wandering down the forest way
     With a diggle-dee-hi and and a giggle-dee-ho
          and a figgle-dee-hi-ho-hum!"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I met up with a woodland nymph
     She seemed so glad to see me
     But she wasn't much for talking
     And about as much for wearing clothes."

Dewsong grins like an idiot.
Dewsong winks.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "'So, I left her there
     With a rose in her hair
     And you can guess where it came from
     So I wandered down the path again
     Just to see where it would go."

You listen with appreciation as Dewsong plays a playful tune with a frolicking splash of sound.

Dewsong asks, "And what do you suppose I found next?"
Dewsong grins.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I met up with a Ska'Mur mage
     A wonderful lass with a very nice tail
     And gleaming silver scales
     And a giggle-dee-hee and figgle-dee-ho
          and a diggle-hee-ha-ha!"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I think she must have known my name
     For she blushed so to see me
     I couldn't bear to stay to long
     For she kept turning my roses funny colors."

Dewsong smiles wanly as he gazes with concerned disdain at a splotchy, molted green blushing rose.
Dewsong shudders.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "'So I wandered down that path again,
     My lute in my hands
     And a song on my lips
     And a figgle-dee-gee and a diggle-dee-ha
          and a giggle-hee-ha-hum!"

Dewsong asks, "of course, you all know what happened next, right?"
Dewsong grins like an idiot.

As Dewsong picks out his rosewood lute, a rapid folk song flies through the air with a blazing glissando.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "As I was walking down that road
     A hand I caught, within my pocket!
     A thieving lass my eye did spy
     Grinning at me quite strange"

Dewsong shrugs.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Only one thing for me to do
     Tickles, tickles, with a rose
     And because my mood was jolly good
     I kindly returned her change"

Dewsong grins.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Then she tried to steal a kiss
     So I stole two right back!
     And away we went, my lute and I
     With a piggle-dee piggle-dee piggle-dee-ho
          and a squiggle-dee-ha-ha-ha!"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "But though my lute is very fine
     My soul needs more than mere wine
     I wanted so a love to hold
     But I knew she wasn't in that cold."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "But within my heart I spied her there
     With violet eyes
     And platinum hair
     And with a flute of peach wine."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "So, I'm sorry lasses
     The truth is told
     I love her so
     And now you know."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "But don't worry lasses,
     Because we love
     With a love so true,
     There will still always be a rose for you!"

As Dewsong strums his rosewood lute, a playful tune ripples through the air with a sound reminiscent of laughter.

Dewsong smiles and concludes his song with an artful twang of his lute while he gives each woman in the audience a sillily grining pink rose.

Dewsong says, "i warned you it was silly..."
Dewsong chuckles.



Dewsong ponders.

Dewsong says, "We all know better than "Happily everafter," but that doesn't seem to stop any of us from pursuing it"

Dewsong says, "There are always the occassion down times, but it seems to me that its how we handle them that's truly important, not how or when they leap out at you... "

Dewsong casually observes the area.
Dewsong shakes his head.
Dewsong smiles.
Dewsong smiles lovingly into the distance as he gently strums his lute, easing a tender melody from its strings...
Drawing upon a finely-honed craft, Dewsong plinks a gentle lullaby on his rosewood lute.
Dewsong finishes playing on his rosewood lute.

Dewsong says, "I Love You"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Do you recall
     That warm summer afternoon?
     I remember it so well..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I was waiting for the gondola
     Peach wine in hand
     You were so beautiful,
     And I was there to break your heart"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I took you to the Rose,
     And before long we were crying
     But though it took so long to say it,
     Klinara, it's still true,"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I love you...
     I need you...
     You are the music of my life
     You are the one that makes it right"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Together we roamed the realms
     From mountains to rivers to deep forest glens
     Looking for all it's hidden beauty"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "But this thing still holds true,
     Nothing can ever compare
     To the smile in your eyes
     When I hear you say"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I love you...
     I need you...
     You are the truest part of me
     My own undying rose."

You listen with appreciation as Dewsong plays an aimless melody with an almost lazy movement on the strings.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "On a quiet stretch of beach
     I asked you for your hand
     And our love dawned anew
     The day you wore my ring"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And not even that blizzard's deadly snows
     Could chill us on that day
     When we said, "I do...""

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I love you...
     I need you...
     With all my being, I love you
     And my soul aches to hold you"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Now, I've made mistakes
     And sometimes you're just feeling down
     I might not have all the answers,
     But there is one thing that I know..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Whether we're playing music in the bar,
     Hunting gargies by the score,
     Or cuddling close in the night,
     Even when I'm not there to say it,"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "There is no limit,
     No stopping ground
     Long after forever has passed away,
     I will still love you..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I love you...
     I need you...
     My dearest wife, I need you
     Now and always I love you..."

Dewsong bows.
Dewsong smiles.
Dewsong smiles and gives you a smug little pink rosebud that just seems to wink and say, "I try."
Dewsong chuckles.



Dewsong says, "This next song speaks entirely for itself, so I'm not going to blab anything else..."
Dewsong grins like an idiot.

Dewsong says, "Precious Moments"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Some nights, the flowers bloom...
     Some nights, the wind whispers...
     Some nights, the raindrops fall..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Nights like this are so right,
     Nights like this are so perfect,
     Because you are in my arms tonight"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Some days drag on and on
     Some days just fly on by
     Some days don't seem like days at all"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "The only days for which I care,
     The only days that matter
     Are the days we have to share..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "You don't have to say a word
     I don't have to say a thing
     We're so close, our hearts do the talking"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "No matter where we roam,
     No matter where we wander,
     In your arms is my true home"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I wish I had something more to say
     "I love you" just isn't enough
     To truly express how I feel."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I want to pull you close and
          hold you tight,
     I want to wrap you up in my love and
          kiss you through the night."
.
Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I want to hold you while the sun rises
     And while we watch it sink below"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I want to lie with you among the roses,
          dining on peaches
          living on love and
          loving our lives..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "And I'll sing to you this final truth,
          I love my life,
          I love my wife,
          I love you, now, forever, unending
      
     So much more than stars will ever know..."

Drawing upon a finely-honed craft, Dewsong plinks a gentle lullaby on his rosewood lute.
Dewsong finishes playing on his rosewood lute.
Dewsong bows.
Dewsong smiles.



Dewsong says, "Klinara and I have been married almost twenty years now..."

Mckatelee says, "You're making me feel old..."
Dewsong grins at Mckatelee.

Dewsong says, "This last song serves not only to draw together tonight's story, but to add one very important last note... "

Dewsong says, "it's also my newest song, couldn't very well have a concert without a new song..."
Dewsong grins like an idiot.
Dewsong rubs a narrow jade wedding band inlaid with a twining golden rose.

Dewsong says, "It's been quite some time since Klinara and I have been able to be together, as some of you know too well"

Dewsong says, "Which is why hope, and faith, become so very important... "

Dewsong smiles as he languidly strums his rosewood lute, drawing an almost dreamlike wistful tune...

Dewsong says, "Peaches and Roses"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Wandering, wandering, wandering so long
     With but a lute, a song, and a rose
     Nowhere was home, nowhere at all,
     And no woman safe from the rose."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Songs were sung, so many said they knew
     But so few bothered looking,
     Past smiles and petals
     To my music's minor key"

With a subtle, powerful style, Dewsong strums a slow ballad weaving a melancholy tone that saddens the soul.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I thought I'd found love once
     But lost for so long, Only that few
     Cared to see how devoted I longed to be
     As I searched and I wandered..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Peaches and roses, and wine-filled crystal,
     To love again despite thoughts
     Falling and falling and falling again
     For peaches and roses and you"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Then one eve of mourning
     She came to me as a friend
     To ease my burden
     She listened to my song"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "In each of our lives there was another
     But as she came to mourn her other
     Away we went, our town exploring
     As friends for wonders and delights"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Peaches and roses, and wine-filled crystal,
     Dancing at Phoenix and swiming by starlight
     Falling and falling and falling again
     For peaches and roses and you...
      
     For peaches and roses and you"

Coaxing the notes into a clean, dulcet tone, an aimless melody floats from Dewsong's rosewood lute.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Across the lands, our friends, they saw
     What we tried in vain to hide from us
     No longer could we deny
     So we wept and planned to part"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Then the moment did overcome
     We could not fight its truth
     In our arms we each did belong
     And vowed to make it so"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Peaches and roses, and wine-filled crystal,
     Bound by truth to be free
     Falling and falling and falling again
     For peaches and roses and you"

With half-closed eyes, Dewsong plays an aimless melody on his rosewood lute.

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "So many weddings we did grace,
     The year I bore a secret ring
     One night our love we did share
     At dawn she wore my ring"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Weddings have come, and marriages gone
     But still we are together
     So many changes the Realms have known
     But our love has lasted ever"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Peaches and roses, and wine-filled crystal,
     Loving and living, always and forever,
     Falling and falling and falling again
     For peaches and roses and you..."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "So many years, together so tight
     So many years, wandering apart
     Through all of these years, trials and feasts
     The promise of the dream of the heart"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Shambling alone, the pain so much
     But one day will come, by her side
     Two halves united, hearts and hands
     Dancing and singing together again"

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Peaches and roses, and wine-filled crystal,
     Dancing and singing, united in ever
     Falling and falling and falling again
     For peaches and roses and you
      
     For peaches, and roses, and you... "

With an almost lazy movement on the strings, Dewsong plays an aimless melody coaxing the notes into a clean, dulcet tone.
Dewsong finishes playing on his rosewood lute.
Dewsong bows.
Dewsong smiles.

Mckatelee smiles and says softly, "People return...
Shenney says, "That they do."
Dewsong grins at Mckatelee.
Niteshiver says, "i waited two years once Dew....and they do"

Daerlynn recites:

"Let's all hear it once more for Dewsong......!"



Dewsong says, "well, that about finishes the list I had prepared... unless you guys force me into an encore..."
Dewsong grins.

[and there was much cheering]

Dewsong says, "well, if you all insist..."

Dewsong says, "alright then... one last song... "

Dewsong says, "this song, I call Proposal... mainly because I used a version of it to propose with..."
Dewsong grins like an idiot.

Dewsong says, "sometimes I can be simple..."
Dewsong chortles softly at some secret joke.

Dewsong smiles and begins to play a tender ballad upon his rosewood lute, the notes ringing with love...

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I am an entertainer
     A worn-out singing man
     I sing my songs for the common man
     For the people everywhere."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I share my words,
     I share my voice,
     But there's so much more to me
     You know there's more to me."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "You shared your pain
     While I tried to comfort you
     I lent you a shoulder to cry on
     As I remembered my own broken heart."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I came to share that with you
     Pain is such an odd thing
     It hurts so much,
     But with it I came to know you
     With it I found a friend so true."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "But then we shared more than pain
     We started to share our joys
     And I started finding that most of mine
     Were like tickles over flutes of peach wine
     Only to be found with you."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "Before I really knew it,
     I know others saw it first
     I came to love you truly
     But thought it was a dream."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "I don't know if it's raining
     Or if those are just tears of joy in my eyes
     But I do know that the sun and stars have never been brighter
     Ever since you said, "I love you.""

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "We've had to face so much pain
     And I know there's more to come
     But you'll never have to face it alone again
     Because now, my love, we'll stand together."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "The harder it gets,
     The tighter we'll hold each other
     For nothing can stand against our love
     Nothing can bar our shared hearts."

Dewsong sings in a tenor voice:

    "We've shared our pains
     We've shared our joys
     We share our love so true
     You are the music of my life,
     You are the only rose for me,"

Dewsong smiles as the last refrain flows from his rosewood lute as softly as a petal on a breeze while he sings, in almost a whisper, "Because, Klinara, I love you so..."

Dewsong smiles and sweeps his elegantly plumed hat from his brow as he bows to you into an outrageously deep pose, returning it with an exagerated flourish.
Dewsong adjusts his plumed hat.

Tashya says, "I swear, he's not happy unless there are soggy hankies everywhere...."
Khakio says to Tashya, "And there ARE soggy hankies everywhere."
Dewsong says, "I mentioned something like that in one of my other songs..."
Dewsong chortles softly at some secret joke.

Daerlynn recites:

"Dewsong !!"

Dewsong smiles and sweeps his elegantly plumed hat from his brow as he bows to you into an outrageously deep pose, returning it with an exagerated flourish.

Sardonica says, "Aye, that was a beautiful night"
Dewsong chuckles.

"I want to thank you all for coming!"

Dewsong leans on Mckatelee.
Dewsong points at Shenney.
Dewsong says, "she sponsored another of the Romance concerts..."
Shenney leans on Dewsong.
Dewsong points at Daerlynn.

Dewsong grins at Mckatelee.
Daerlynn grins at Dewsong.
Mckatelee says, "Thanks to Mykk, too"

Mckatelee says, "I was so touched"
Dewsong grins at Mckatelee.
Mykk says, "You're welcome."

Dewsong grins at Isembard.
Mykk shrugs.
Shenney grins at Isembard.
Sardonica says, "Lucky Mykk"
Mykk says, "Happens."

Mckatelee says, "Thank you for keeping the scrolls"
Mykk says, "Very welcome."
Sardonica says, "I hope you do another concert soon, Dew. I want to milk you for your storytelling genius"
Mckatelee says, "I also was able to find my own songs thanks to that"
Isembard gazes at Mykk in admiration.
Mckatelee grins.

Daerlynn recites:

"Be sure to come back in two weeks for the next concert!"

Dewsong grins at Mckatelee.
Dewsong says, "me too"
Mykk says, "Good, good, the old Dreamheart series, I presume."
Dewsong asks, "where do you think I got your lyrics from?"
Dewsong chortles softly at some secret joke.
Mckatelee nods.
Mckatelee laughs!
Mckatelee says, "very old"
Mckatelee says, "I'm just decrepit"

Daerlynn recites:

"And take care of your sweetie... you never know when she could be taken from you."

Daerlynn recites:

    "Thank you!"
