October Masquerade!

October Masquerade!


The letter arrives past midnight, when everyone is asleep. One streetlight flickers as the letter is placed carefully under your door. You don't notice. You're sleeping too. But you'll wake up soon enough and see the evenlope in your kitchen, and, of course, you'll open it:


You are invited to a masquerade! You can wear a costume or not, and, of course, a mask. Not like a COVID-19 mask. The other kind. What's it called? Well, you know what I mean. The kind you'd wear to a masquerade. Thanks, hope to see you there!



Well, that was informal. But exciting. You fill out the form:


Name (make up a name, like in an SI, not your real CB name, please): 




What're you wearing to the masquerade: 


Are your bringing any food or drinks and what are they?:


Anything else:



So yeah, I'm doing a masquerade! Masquerades are mixes of SIs and CB balls/parties. The party will start on October 7th, you may not make guesses on who people are until then. Here is my form:



Name: Nightingale  


Pronouns: she/her


What're you wearing to the masquerade: I'm wearing a midnight-black dress with a hemline and white sandals with small black gemstones on them. My hair is in a low-ish bun with braids wrapped around it, and my mask is white with black gemstones as well.



Are you bringing any food?: Well, my manshion has waiters, aka AEs who I made dress up in masks and carry around food trays. You can try to coax them to give them clues as to who I am, but I will not be making their voices like this or this or anything, they'll just talk normally. 




The party will take place at my manshion (Midnight Manshion),  mostly downstairs but the upstairs is open to visitors too. Anyone can join in during the party, don't worry if you're late. Have fun!

After the announcement, I wander around a bit, dance some. I wonder if I can request a song, and walk over to the DJ booth.

"Hi," I say to Glass, "Can you play Freaking Me Out by Ava Max next?"

I take off my mask sadly.  It was unfortunate I could not remain hidden for longer, but of course, that was my own fault, forgetful me using my "real" name on a comment. I wonder how long I'dve lasted if I hadn't.

These secret identity things look fun.  I wonder how long it'll be before someone comes along with an AE friendly one.

If you want one, you could make it yourself.

I don't feel like it right now, Tsuki.

I look around, trying to find someone to talk to. But everyone is talking to each other, I'm so unsure of what to do. I mean, I'm used to this, aren't I? I walk over to a table full of food, picking up all of the sugary looking things. Extra mangos, of course.

I stride over to Dreamless. "Enjoying the pary?" I say, smiling. I snatch a cookie at random from the snack table. "I waf alfeady gueffed." I swallow. "Sorry, I should know by now not to talk with my mouth full. I was already guessed, but I thought I'd stay a while longer."

"The party is quite lovely I say," instantly cringing at my weirdly formal greeting. I'm not used to being alone at parties, I'm the most outgoing person I know. "So how do you feel about mangos?" I ask.

"Mangos are the my absolute favorite fruit!" I enthuse.

I'm cheaking this sometimes :/ I have a lot of stuff with school and other RPs and my NaNo story, ETC. ETC...

I'm trying to handle everything so this is kind of like an "Oh, right, The October Masquerade. I'd better post."

Same. I'm having a hard time remembering to check the CB often. I should probably not do anymore RPs and stuff until break or when I get better at making free time. Except for this, of course, I'll still do it until it ends.

Everyone at the party has grown quiet. People are leaving. Ah, well. My party, as well as October, is coming to an end.


"Thank you to everyone who came. Will everyone please take off their masks and reveal who they are?"


I pause. Maybe I won't take mine off yet. Maybe I'll use it again next October, and the guessing can go on.

I nod, smile, and remove my mask. "I'm MoonKitten. I love this outfit..."

I unhook my mask to reveal my face. "Ah, well, it was fun while it lasted," I muttered to myself. Then I anounnced to the last party members, "I am Writing_in_the_Dark!" 

submitted by Crowmaster, it's Writing :)
