Xanzie Concert, 2/16/2002, Daerlynn Concert Series II, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

It has been 367 years, 365 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.
It is the 10th month of Nissa the Maiden in the year of the Amber Phoenix.
It is currently winter and it is daytime.

The sky is a sharp, clear blue.

[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. A sign is posted prominently next to the archway. You also see a royal blue wicker basket, a sapphire blue wicker basket, a rosewood stick, a leaf green homespun cloth with some stuff on it, a wooden menuboard, a polished wooden bar with some stuff on it, some wooden stairs, and an open doorway.

Concert

"Tonight, I think it is wonderful to have a Bard here... part of the Tavern Troupe.. and the Bawdy Balladeers..."

Daerlynn recites:

"I am sure she will sing us songs of Lus.. I mean.. Love..."

Daerlynn recites:

"But, a Bard I am honored to have here.. and I know you will love her.."

Daerlynn yells, "XANZIE!!!!!!!!"

Xanzie blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.
Xanzie says, "Thanks Daerlynn"
Xanzie smiles at Daerlynn.
Xanzie says, "The first concert I came to here.. ooo a while back.. was when Daerlynn did hers.."
Xanzie says, "and that night I said.. "I wanna do that""
Xanzie smiles at Daerlynn.
Xanzie says, "So I'm glad she asked me here."

Xanzie says, "My name is Xanzie, I was born in Leth, raised in Crossing.. since then I think I've been everywhere."
Xanzie ponders.
Xanzie says, "Currently I live in Theren where I get alot of paladin influences, so I hope no one minds it too much"
Xanzie chuckles.



Xanzie says, "My first song is actually called "The Paladin" I wrote it for my aunt. She's still out there somewhere.. just usually on vacation these days."
Xanzie smiles.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Moving down this road
        That I have traveled all my life
     My boots clank on the well laid stone
        Of my past and future strife"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "With my sword in my hand
        And my shield by my side
     I go forth in life
        My eyes open wide."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "For I am the warrior
     Of God's true light
     And I travel
         Travel wide
     No fear in my sight."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Think not of straying off the path
        My father told to me
     The devils of the way side
        Will Lie and steal of thee"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My soul is forever
        Devoted, true and right
     I go forth in life
       My goal in my sight."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "For I am the warrior
     And I travel
         Travel wide
     With God as my power
     And my sword at my side."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The southern lands do call to me
        With all their maiden's faire
     The islands with their waters
        Gaze wonderous without a care"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The Central jewel, with it's bustling streets
        A new sight each shadowy turn
     But the northlands have my favor
        It is there my heart does yearn"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "For I am a warrior
     I've seen all far and near
     And I travel
         Travel wide
     Praising God for all I see."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "All things pass before me
        Son, I must instill to you
     You look to me as an angel
        Brave and strong and true."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I am battle-worn and beaten
        A life of standing with my faith
     And at the end of my life
        I know my soul is safe."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, I am still the warrior
     I have travel
         Travelled wide
     And I will rest only
     When I kneel at God's side."

Xanzie bows.



Xanzie says, "Before I moved to Therenborough I spent alot of time up by the north gate."

Xanzie says, "I'd sit and play and sing my silly songs to anyone who was fool enough to stop"
Xanzie chuckles to herself.

Xanzie says, "During that time I got to meet alot of people and I realized that there were alot of stories out there."

Xanzie says, "one of the first songs I wrote was for a cleric I knew"
Xanzie smiles.

Xanzie says, "He would come out of Deathspirits on his back about as often as his feet, but he was nice enough to listen."

Xanzie says, "This is called "Fallen Angel" And its Ssenkadahvics song."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "There's a dark shadow wandering down the way
     Whichever way he chooses
     A tattered robe across his heart
     To cover up the bruises."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Are you just another gypsy
     Or some dark soul wandering the road
     Come down by the firelight
     And say what you've been told
     How has this tarnished angel come to us
     To whom has your soul been sold."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Where do you wander to
     With dust clinging to your heel
     Is there a journey's end you search for
     With your eyes of emerald steel."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You've come so far
     And fallen so low down to the earth
     Fallen angel
     Will you ever find your way back home."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Watch the dark angel
     As he woos them all from death
     In the moonlight he dances
      And beckons to your breath."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Bring us back to life
     Steal us from the goddess's womb
      Then we shall come to the earth
     From our forsaken tomb
     And we all fall from the heavens
     And join you in your doom"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Where do you wander to
     With dust clinging to your heel
     Is there a journey's end you search for
     With your eyes of emerald steel."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You've come so far
     And fallen so low down to the earth
     Fallen angel
     Will you ever find your own home."

Xanzie bows.
Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.
Xanzie beams!



Xanzie gets a rosewood fiddle from inside her leather music satchel.
Xanzie begins to carefully examine a rosewood fiddle.
Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie grins.
Xanzie gets a fiddle bow from inside her leather music satchel.
Xanzie casually observes the area.

Xanzie says, "Okay, my next song is a little piece I created as an experiment."
Xanzie chuckles.
Xanzie says, "And we'll throw in a little elven magic for your pleasure. "
Xanzie winks.

Xanzie says, "This is "Song of Life""

Xanzie concentrates for a moment the begins to play a spellweaving tune on her fiddle.

Xanzie gayly plays her fiddle, bringing the light magically down around her as she plays a frolicky intro to her song.

As Xanzie strums her rosewood fiddle, a playful tune ripples through the air with a sound reminiscent of laughter.

Xanzie glides her bow across the bridge of her fiddle bringing forth an image of a couple dancing and laughing in youthful exuberance. Her fingers dance in motion with the tiny apparition.

Xanzie dances along with the tiny couple as her fiddle bow dances along with the tune.

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

Xanzie bends into her fiddle as her song takes a mature but joyful turn, the apparition changes to a young man dancing with a laughing baby in his arms.

Xanzie pulls her bow oddly across her fiddle, changing the joyful tune to a more chaotic tone, her tiny images swirl wildly with many images of children running madly.

Xanzie smiles and turns the music of her fiddle to a new frolicky tune, mixed with chaos as the swirling apparition grows and couples form from the smaller figures.

Xanzie slows down her tune in a serious march. The image shows the original couple watching a younger couple standing before an altar.

Xanzie plays her fiddle in a gentle evening melody as the tiny appraitions dance slowly and blissfully in the autumn of their lives.

With consummate skill, Xanzie plinks a gentle lullaby with an amazing display of dexterity.

Xanzie turns the mood again to a mournful lull, as many figures gather around a gravesite. Xanzie's eyes well with tears as she draws her bow slowly across her fiddle in a languid dirge.

Xanzie slows her grieving song down to a halt as her image slowly dissolves back into the air. The light leaves her and she stands in absolute stillness in the dark.

Xanzie stands in the dark and draws a single note across her fiddle, the light collects for a moment in the image of a couple embracing lovingly.

Xanzie smiles.

Xanzie strikes her fiddle fiercely, bringing back a light brighter than ever. And image swirls playfully once again and a tiny apparition appears in the image of a young man dancing with a newborn child. The cycle of life continues.

As Xanzie strums her rosewood fiddle, a playful tune ripples through the air with a sound reminiscent of laughter.

Xanzie bends with the tone of her fiddle and begins dancing joyfully next to the tiny apparition.

Xanzie laughs happily as her tune ends and the light returns to normal.

Xanzie bows gracefully.
Xanzie pants.
Xanzie beams!



Xanzie says, "Over the years, I've managed to collect several of songs and everyone of them has a person standing behind it."

Xanzie says, "Not everyone realizes they've got a song out there. But like I always say, everyone has a story.. you just have to find it."

Xanzie smiles calmly.

Xanzie says, "This song is about one of those people. It's titled "The Bonny Captain"."

Xanzie grumpily says, ""I'm not like that""

Xanzie says, "as the captain would say"

Xanzie says, "You folks have to make that decision for yourself."

Xanzie winks.

Xanzie dreamily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Not long ago in the town of Therenborough
         Not so far that this elf cannot remember
     Was a brave and bonny captain
       Of the fair and gentlemanly nature"

Xanzie wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "His face was rugged as the hawk
        His hair was sweet honey fair
     His eyes shone of the great courage
       That shined brightly from deep within there."

Xanzie matter-of-factly says, "And believe me people did notice. "
Xanzie fans herself.

Xanzie dreamily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He dared whatever it took
        To keep his fair Therenborough safe
     And his gentle, bonny charm
       Drew citizenry of every race"

Xanzie wistfully says, "Believe me, you never saw so many women living in this city as you did then."

Xanzie wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "One day, deep in the marshes
        As he was clearing foes from his sight
     He heard a desperate cry of help
       And he ran to be by their side"

Xanzie dreamily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "In a cove by the lake, the lady lay
        With a troll standing straight over top o' her
     The captain came in with a roaring cry
       With blade raised he charged o'er"

Xanzie excitedly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Surprised by his foe, the troll turned.
        Casting magic to disorient the great man
     But the captain shook it off
       And replied with sword in hand"

Xanzie confidently sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The fair maid looked on with horror
        As the troll disappeared in a mist
     He turned quickly to tend the lady
       And knelt beside her to assist"

Xanzie smiles and gazes dreamily off into the distance.

Xanzie dreamily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "His arms came up around her and lifted her
        With his hand resting gently at her arch
     And in quiet honor and dignity
       Carried her safely from the march"

Xanzie wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "In the town the people gathered
        He gently set down this lady faire
     He took her hand and kissed it softly
       Then turned and left her in the empath's care"

Xanzie lets out a deep sigh of contentment.

Xanzie dreamily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "News of this great captain spread
        And the ladies flocked and bards did sing
     Oh come to the town of Therenborough
       And the captain will take you under his wing"

Xanzie smiles.

Xanzie matter-of-factly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So if you wonder why the ladies are out
        It's to get the chance to meet
     The fair and bonny captain
       As he passes by Therenborough's streets"

Xanzie slowly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "His face was rugged as the hawk
        His hair was sweet honey fair
     His eyes shone of the great courage
       That shined brightly from deep within there."

Xanzie smiles and curtsies gracefully after her song concludes.

Xanzie winks at Dareth.



Xanzie asks, "How's everyone doing?"
Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie casually observes the area.
Xanzie smiles softly.

Xanzie says, "To everything, the cycle of life binds it. And every person and creature is affected."

Xanzie says, "I wrote this to honor a friend who passed on."

Xanzie says, "He travelled through out the land and quested to see everything that he could. And wrote it all down in a book so that those who came after would have the knowledge."

Xanzie says, "This song is entitled, "Softly Goes the Lion"."

Xanzie smiles softly at you.

Xanzie tenderly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I have listened to each new sight
     I have seen each wondrous story
     I have puzzled on every creature
     I have conquered each mystery"

Xanzie tenderly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My Lord, I have done all this
     For the glory of your giving
     This wandering soul is weary
     Show me the way home"

Xanzie smiles at you.

Xanzie tenderly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now softly goes the lion
     Into the bosom of the night
     I have found peace in the sunset
     Now find peace in me"

Xanzie raises her hands to the sky.

Xanzie confidently sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And even, as the sun shall rise every morning
     And even as the land grows with its light
     May the world never lose its wonder at daybreak
     And revel still in the warmth that brings it life."

Xanzie raises her arms, embracing you with her song.

Xanzie quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now softly goes the lion
     Beneath the blanket of winter
     At the year's end I find peace
     Now find peace in me."

Xanzie smiles serenely and wraps her arms around her heart.

Xanzie confidently sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And each new spring shall bring an abundance of life
     As the thaw quenches the earth for the next generation
     May the land never lose its bountiful treasures
     So each child can grow to realize their dream"

Xanzie bows her head reverantly.

Xanzie tenderly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I have listened to each new sight
     I have seen each wondrous story
     I have puzzled on every creature
     I have conquered each mystery"

Xanzie reachs out to you imploringly.

Xanzie quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now softly goes the lion...
      
     I have realized my dream
     Dear God relieve this wandering soul
     ....I am ready, bring me home..."

Xanzie kneels down as her song ends and gazes into the distance with peace in her eyes.

Xanzie stands and bows graciously to the audience.



Xanzie asks, "So do you want more sad or more happy songs?"
Xanzie raises an eyebrow.
Xanzie laughs!

Xanzie says, "okay another sad.. a bloody one for Heston and then a couple happy ones."
Xanzie giggles.
Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie casually observes the area.

Xanzie says, "This song came to me one day while I was sitting with a cleric who was with a deadman with no favors."

Xanzie says, "I always think of how fate has an interesting way of pushing us onward to our goal, but forgetting to tell us about the cliff before you get to it."

Xanzie says, "This song is entitled "Blow, o Southern Wind"."

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Blow, blow o southern wind
     Blow my spirit wide
     Take me to my lover fare
     And lay me by her side"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Through forests grim and canyon deep
     I have travelled many a way
     Forsaking all I knew in my youth
     For the wonderous sights of each new day"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My wanderlust took me through out the world
     To each new cause I gave my all
     Every battle was mine to fight
     And at the end of the day I stood tall"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Yet this fated day I see the light
     Of misspent fortune and lost innocence
     And I turn my eyes to the sun a last time
     And remember her in as I knew her once"

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, Blow, blow o southern wind
     Blow my spirit wide
     Take me to my lover fare
     And lay me by her side"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Though the years have been long and many
     I know she did not wait for me
     As I traveled throughout the world alone
     Vainly searching for all I could see"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now alone I lay in battle
     Fallen victim to my own vanity
     I call out to you and my lonely echos
     Are all that returns for me"

Xanzie sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, death it does become me
     And in my loss I embrace thee
     My heart is broken, my body torn
     And soul too soon abandons me"

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, Blow, blow o warm wind
     Through town and battlefield
     Come to me, My Dark lady
     My life to you I now yield"

Xanzie smiles and bows slowly.
Xanzie rubs her eyes.
Xanzie smiles.



Xanzie casually observes the area.
Xanzie says, "Heston wants a battle song.. "
Xanzie giggles.

Xanzie says, "This song is another one of those favorless deader songs.. dead and gore kinda go hand in hand with that stuff."

Xanzie chuckles.

Xanzie says, "I had an unusual friend once, who refused to get favors...."

Xanzie ponders.

Xanzie says, "needless to say, he's no longer with us... but this song is for him."

Xanzie frowns.

Xanzie says, "This is "The Story of the Danger Ranger""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "There was once a day, not too long ago
     In the marshes in east Riverhaven
     When a charming young ranger took his daily leg stretching
     And thought what a wonderful day he was having"

Xanzie gets a rosewood fiddle from inside her leather music satchel.
Xanzie gets a fiddle bow from inside her leather music satchel.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He heard a quick noise and he turned with a start
     And before him in all his her great power.
     Was the spirit of death and the dark somber face
     Of the wondrous and tempestuous Eylhaar"

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""How now," came her voice ringing clear in his head
     "Have you come to my woods this afternoon"
     "With out appeasing me first at the altar of the Gods"
     "And offering your sacrificial orb for my boon.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now the ranger was not so much a god-fearing man
     But the vision of Her was astounding.
     He collected his wits and stood his ground
     Even though her breathe in his head was resounding."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""Oh wondrous Dark Lady," he began with a quiver.
     "I have heard of your merciful heart"
     "For the fools and the children that walk on this world."
     "Of which I am firmly a part.""

With a graceful potency, Xanzie strums a slow ballad on her rosewood fiddle.

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""You fool," she responded, "You are not a part,"
     "Of this world if you haven't a clue."
     "My mercy is only for those with my favor"
     "And you haven't even a few.""
 
Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""So now go from this place, to the old cemetery"
     "And see what becomes of the lost."
     "And there seek my boon for my favor you must."
     "Before you suffer the horrible cost.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And with this the Dark Lady disappeared from his sight
     And left him on this bright sunny noon.
     And he walked the cemetery nearby, and thought
     "This is not how I want to spend my afternoon""

With a graceful potency, Xanzie strums a slow ballad on her rosewood fiddle.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So despite all her warnings, he crept back in
     To the marshes where the trolls and sluaghs dwell.
     And began to fight monsters and do heroic things
     And save all the lovely maidens in the dell"

Xanzie smiles and shows her muscles.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Then from the edge of his view came a troll with a pike
     He couldn't evade or step to the side
     He looked and imposed on the troll's jeering face
     Was the Dark Lady with her dark shining eyes."

Xanzie darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""You didn't heed my warning and seek ye my favor."
     "Now to me, your soul becomes lost."
     "See now what happens with your life blood desolving."
     "Now you suffer the horrible cost.""

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

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The ranger wept as his life slipped away
     The Dark Lady laughed as she faded from view
     Then he heard Aldauth, laugh in her place
     And his god-fearing was throughly renewed."

Xanzie raises an eyebrow.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "After his death, he heard a new voice in his head.
     As the prayers from the living off in the distance and dim.
     He felt life's stirring grip and he inhaled a great breath
     And looked to see what angel had saved him."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He could barely remember as she told him his loss
     And the sacrifice she made as the raiser.
     To appease the gods, he'd lost all his knowledge
     And she had lost her own favor"

You listen with appreciation as Xanzie plays a slow ballad with a subtle, powerful style.

Xanzie hauntingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "As he looked on this young cleric, the Dark Lady appeared
     And she shed one tear that fell soft as the rain.
     "Her loss was for you, foolish ranger boy."
     "Do not make her loss one in vain.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    ""So now go from this place, to the old cemetery"
     "Now that you know of the cost."
     "And there seek my boon for my favor you must."
     "And no more shall you suffer the loss.""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh, the ranger smiled and kissed the cleric's soft face
     As he embraced the Dark Lady's waver.
     He went on to the place, in the old cemetary
     And he filled up on her beautiful Favor"

You listen with appreciation as Xanzie plays a slow ballad with a subtle, powerful style.

Xanzie smiles.
Xanzie bows.

Xanzie leans on her mace.

Xanzie says, "I've thought recently about taking up the mace"

Xanzie says, "This is my new song."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I was practicing the other day
     In my favorite spot near Langenfirth
     When I was approached by this man
     Who was admiring my girth"

Xanzie rolls her eyes.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I stared at him a moment
     He said "Be still my heart
     Don't mind me, Hun.
     "I'm just admiring your art""

Xanzie leans on her mace.

Xanzie sarcastically sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Art?  I inquired
     I'm just here with my baby
     I swung at another troll
     And took him down like a lady"

Xanzie winks.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He glanced at me with a look
     That I couldn't duplicate
     He pursed his lips a moment
     And these words he did state."

Xanzie playfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Swing wide, baby
     Swing it left
     Swing it right
     Cut a path
     Clear a row
     I can't believe my eyes"

Xanzie shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You know I like swinging
     All day and all night
     And swinging with my baby is all right."

Xanzie smiles and taps her "Baby".

Xanzie coyly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "With my baby in hand
     I wound up for the swing
     And the fella threw a fit
     "No babe, tis those hips that sing""

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Swing this way, baby
     What else can I say
     And come on over here
     Clear a path my way"

(Xanzie backswings her mace, nearly hitting you in the head, and plops the mace up on her shoulder.)

Xanzie mischievously says, "Someday I'm going to be really dangerous with this thing."

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Well, if that isn't the worst line
     I've heard in a while
     You seem like a nice bloke
     You can give a girl a smile"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "But since I'm not busy
     I guess a girl can play
     Pucker up baby
     I'm swinging your way."

(Xanzie winds up her mace and swings her hips.)

Xanzie shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Xanzie matter-of-factly says, "Remember, ladies, it's all in the hips."

Xanzie nods.

Xanzie playfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Swing wide, baby
     Swing it left
     Swing it right
     Cut a path
     Clear a row
     I can't believe my eyes"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You know I like swinging
     All day and all night
     And swinging with my baby is all right."

Xanzie points at a white ironwood-hafted mace wrapped in fine grey leather she has.

Xanzie says, "Baby."

Xanzie grins.

Xanzie recites:

    "You know, I've never been one
     To hold an awful grudge
     And a nice funning man
     Can be very hard to bludge."

Xanzie leans on her mace.

Xanzie playfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So I swing them to and fro
     With my man by my side
     And I'll never let him go
     My Baby and I."

Xanzie playfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Swing wide, baby
     Swing it left
     Swing it right
     Cut a path
     Clear a row
     I can't believe my eyes"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "You know I like swinging
     All day and all night
     And swinging with my baby is all right."

Xanzie waves a white ironwood-hafted mace wrapped in fine grey leather around.
Xanzie bows.
Xanzie just hugged a white ironwood-hafted mace wrapped in fine grey leather!



Xanzie says, "Okay..."

Xanzie says, "Daerlynn was dodging the bawdy balledeers issue earlier"
Xanzie grins at Daerlynn.

Xanzie says, "Back at the fair we got a little group together.. "

Xanzie says, "wrote some songs and went all out to entertain the group at the Glythtide Faire."

Xanzie says, "so I'm going to end the night with one of those little songs."

Xanzie asks, "Ladies, would you like to join me for the chorus?"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Pick him up and dust him off
     And move him down the road
     You never know who you'll meet next
     Who knows!"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Never stay with anyone way too long
     Just a dance and a jiggle and a good bye song
     Give a little happiness then spread it around
     It's a public service and it's there to be found"
 
Xanzie shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "When a man gets frustrated it isn't very pretty
     By the time he comes to you, it's flip city!
     So you let him wrile down and you give him a shake
     He'll never regret the time you were there for his sake"

Xanzie rolls her eyes.
Xanzie leans on Daerlynn.

Lethargy's soprano, Heston's mezzo-soprano and Daerlynn's alto join with Xanzie's mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Pick him up and dust him off
     And move him down the road
     You never know who you'll meet next
     Who knows!"

Xanzie smiles at Zazu.

    "Never stay with anyone way too long
     Just a dance and a jiggle and a good bye song

     It's a public service and it's there to be found"

Xanzie shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "To see him down in the dumps, is just so sad
     He's got a woman in his mind, and it's driving him mad
     Oh, treat him right, and make him forget
     He can leave her far behind and never ever be upset"

Zazu's soprano, Lethargy's soprano, Heston's mezzo-soprano and Daerlynn's alto join with Xanzie's mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Pick him up and dust him off
     And move him down the road

     Who knows!"

Zazu's soprano, Lethargy's soprano, Heston's mezzo-soprano and Daerlynn's alto join with Xanzie's mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Never stay with anyone way too long
     Just a dance and a jiggle and a good bye song
     Give a little happiness then spread it around
     It's a public service and it's there to be found"

Xanzie sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh I never get involved with a man with designs
     I can take them or can leave them way behind
     It's about practical use of your time as a plan
     You can't be productive and be with just one man"

Zazu's soprano, Lethargy's soprano, Heston's mezzo-soprano and Daerlynn's alto join with Xanzie's mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Pick him up and dust him off
     And move him down the road
     You never know who you'll meet next
     Who knows!"

Zazu's soprano, Lethargy's soprano, Heston's mezzo-soprano and Daerlynn's alto join with Xanzie's mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "Never stay with anyone way too long

     Give a little happiness then spread it around
     It's a public service and it's there to be found"

Xanzie bows.
Xanzie exclaims, "Thank you Ladies!"



Lethargy says, "And now, I pray thee give me thine ears, my friends, and hear mine words: "An Ode to My Beloved on the Wedding Day", by Lethargy Silkyfingers."

Lethargy bows her head, inhaling deeply and smoothly, as you see her shoulders relax. You begin to hear the sounds of nature all around you, as the calm she has summoned imposes itself on the world around you, making you breathe a little more freely, a feeling of peace settling over you...

Lethargy raises her gaze to meet yours, and you see in her eyes a sense of dreamy passion, of hunger, and need, and naked desire.

Lethargy dreamily sings in a soprano voice:

    "I stand before thee, on this special eve, my love...
     The setting sun caresses thy head, thy shoulders,
     Much as I long to do, myself..."

Lethargy breathes easily, her chest rising and falling evenly as her words echo in your minds.

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "I glance at thee, as the holy priest doth
     Prepare the words of devotion,
     Of inspiration,
     That will seal thee to me,
     To me..."

Lethargy closes her eyes, an expression of purest rapture on her face as she continues....

Lethargy longingly sings in a soprano voice:

    "My mouth doth water at the sight of thee,
     Standing tall and regal,
     Bedecked in finery befitting a king-
     My king..."

Lethargy sways as if she danced slowly with a partner, as fragile breezes tug at the hem of her cloak.

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "Welcome as sunshine after gentle spring rains,
     I canst not but glance hungrily at thee,
     Time and again,
     As I imagine the pleasure to come after the holy ceremony."

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "Mine eyes lower chastely, and yet,
     And yet,
     The fires of wicked desires come unbanked within me
     To flare into full flame, a burning hunger..."

Lethargy bites her lower lip as her brow furrows slightly, her hands trembling slightly.

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "I remember when I first laid mine eyes upon thee-
     I recall, blushing, how my fingers first made thine acquaintance!
     E'en the merest taste of thee, that day, was like unto that of godlike nectar,
     And oh! how I long to be sated by full repast!"

Lethargy brings her hands to her lips, kissing the fingertips softly, softly.

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "To feel thee full in my hands!
     To bring thee, succulent,
                    redolent,
      with the scent of autumn spices,
     To my yearning mouth..."

Lethargy lets her tongue tip slip between her lips to briefly flick at her fingertips.
Lethargy fans herself.

Lethargy longingly sings in a soprano voice:

    "To feel thee sliding past my lips, flirting lovingly with my tongue-
     Insistently forcing thy way past my unresisting throat-
     I gasp with the heady anticipation,
     My face flushed, masked by the rosy light of the waning sun..."

Lethargy shudders and moans aloud, her eyes still closed, her hips swaying gently to her own rhythm.

Lethargy sings in a soprano voice:

    "I canst hardly wait until the ceremony is done,
     My love, my savory love!
     For, as certain as waves of pure love cleanse the sands of our soul,
     So, too, will I have thee at long, long last...."

Lethargy longingly says, "My wedding cake..."

Lethargy winks as a slow, steady grin spreads across her face, her fingers miming a quick swipe across the frosting of an imaginary wedding cake her own height, then licking them one by one as she sees amused comprehension dawn on your faces...

Lethargy curtsies.
