Princess Amira Juliet Taurus

Amira was awoken by the rapid knocking on her bedroom door, "Princess Taurus? It time to get up My Lady. The meeting at King Constellation's castle is today." Malcolm, Amira's chamber manservant softly coed before entering the room. Amira groaned and lazily sat up. Warm sunlight dripped across her skin as she let the blanket smoothly fall off her naked torso and rest around her hips. She let out a quiet yawn before brushing away the strands of her dirty platinum blonde hair that were stuck to her face.

"It's so early. With out you Malcolm, I'd never be awake for anything." Amira smiled sleepily and tilted her head to face the fluffy haired man.

"I'm glad i can be of use My Lady. Now, lets get you washed and dressed and ready to go." He smiled happily and extended a hand towards her for her to take. Amira gently took his hand and moved off her bed, the dark red sheets of her bed falling completely off of her as she did. Malcolm lead her to the bathroom to be bathed, the white claw-footed bathtub was already full of soothing, hot water. Amira sunk in to it happily as Malcolm started to wash her hair and scrub her horns.

After the bath, Malcolm helped Amira out of the bath and dressed her in attire fitting the occasion. A pale green, black-less Greek style dress. after brushing her thigh length hair and making sure she had her sickle staff with her, Amira was escorted by Malcolm trough the castle and to the front gates where a carriage was waiting for her.

She turned to face her manservant, "Well I guess i'm off then. Please do keep good care of mother and father while i'm gone. I know i'm not leaving forever but still. You never know what could happen while there is war about." She said in her usual calm and steady tone.

"You have my word, My Lady~ I will watch over them for you." Amira smiled gently and got into the carriage, watching Malcolm bow her a goodbye before the driver snapped the reins and the horses took off.

When they arrived at the King's castle, dreaded memories of the place filled her head. "Why he did it. I will never know." Amira thought to herself, thinking of her father. She shook the thoughts from her head and exited the carriage, where upon stepping onto the stone floor a guard announced her arrival and escorted her inside.

Once inside Amira saw two others had already been there before her. She giggled to herself childishly, a bit uncharacteristic of herself but it couldn't be helped. As mature as she was, she still had bad time management. It was a good thing she had Malcolm or she surely would have been late to this little arrangement. Amira walked up to join the two.

"Good morning Prince Capricorn, Princess Libra. It is lovely to see you both again." She said, her voice being soft against the hustle and bustle of the King's court.

"Shall we proceed?" She extended and arm in the direction of the room they would be going too and began to move forward towards it. A pair of the King's noblemen open the grand double doors to the meeting hall as Amira drew near enough, the sudden small gust of wind escaping the room blowing through her dress and causing it to ripple around her as the entered the room.

Amira noticed that it was Prince Galaxy waiting for them instead of the King.

Amira smiled sweetly and honestly at the boy, "Young Prince Galaxy. You are still as handsome as ever. Its a pleasure to see you again." She said, her pink-ish red eyes meeting his.

Princess Sophia Libra


Sophia smiled at Prince Capricorn's greeting. "Hello Prince Capricorn, and it is a good morning isn't it?" She said warmly, though she cringed at the trumpets. I'll never get used to that will I? She thought to herself just before Princess Taurus greeted them. "Ah, as it is to see you, Princess." Sophia replied then followed her in.

As they walked to the throne room all Sophia could do was stare in aw. She had never lived in luxury as a child, only because her father had been banished from the Libra court, and felt it unnecessary to let them know he had had a child, even though he was brother to the last Prince Libra. As the neared the throne room Sophia brought herself back to the present. Upon entering the throne room noticed the young Prince Galaxy on the throne. Oh dear, please no, I don't want to deal with this person. At that moment she was tempted to turn back and go home.

"Prince Galaxy, what an honor it is to finely meet you." Sophia said with smile on her face, though far from genuine. "We are here to help." She curtsied gently then stepped out of the way to allow others to come in as well.

”Ah, Princess Taurus. Your kind words warms my heart as always” Sebastian flashed her his charming smile. ”And Princess Libra. You're as beautiful as morning flower. Prince Capricorn” he nodded to the Prince. ”I'm glad you all joined on our side” he greeted them.

He waved his hand towards the table. ”Feel free to eat. You have had a long journey. And before you ask, my father is not here today.” He yawned and didn't even bother to cover it. His advisor whispered to him. ”Right, thank you Jeremy.” he said to him and turned back to his guests. ”The guest rooms have been prepaired in case you want to stay here over night. Also if there's anything you need, our servants will take care of it.” Everyone could hear the boredom in his voice.

”I just woke up. Why I have to act like I would care about this. I'm not the King or warlord. There's no reason for me to be here. Gosh. I just want to go back to bed.” he thought in his mind.

Prince Darcy Montel Capricorn


Darcy eyed the young princess, though his facial expression did not change. It has been five years since Princess Libra actually became Princess Libra. He has only met her at balls, but then again he never actually spoke with her. His only indication of her being a decent ruler is that the Kingdom of Libra hasn't fallen. The situation in Libra five years ago sure was something. She seems like a good person. Polite. Darcy blinked at the trumpets, and observed Sophia's reaction. It's rather worrying.

Before he could think anymore on the subject, Princess Taurus arrived. He responded to her greeting with a bow and "good morning." Amira was one of the royals he had actually conversed with before, so his greeting was a tad bit friendlier than with Sophia. It's not that he dislikes her, but he just knows Amira better. They were the same age and had the same views on many subjects, and she has the ability to bring out the more talkative side of Darcy.

He walked into the castle, following the Princesses, whilst observing the room. It was definitely busy, and he knew that war was imminent, just from the atmosphere. It was very similar to the war when he was younger. His eye caught Princess Libra and her astonished look of the castle. Truly, truly worrying. Darcy moved his focus to the front, he didn't want to think about anything else except the war right now.

When the three have reached the throne room, the corners of Darcy's lips turned downward very, very subtly. After the two had greeted the Prince on the throne, Darcy had bowed as well and simply said, "Prince Galaxy." He thought about the way the other two had greeted him. Amira was kind as usual- this was one of those times when Darcy felt like rolling his eyes. He didn't, of course, but he thinks Amira should be more, real, for a lack of a better phrase. Sophia on the other hand, Darcy takes that she's not too fond of him either. He's observed too many people to not sense the hidden meaning in that smile. Although he knew not why she felt that way, it was nice knowing someone was on the same page as him.

Darcy took a seat and folded his hands, heading straight to business. "Thank you for your generosity, Prince Galaxy. You were kind to have prepared all of this." Though he doubts he had the foresight to think that far. The only reason why Darcy isn't complaining right off the bat was because Galaxy was still a very young man. He muses that perhaps because he is young, he just does not understand the weight of the situation at hand. Which was very evident in his demeanor. "I hate to bring about the subject too quickly," no he doesn't, "but I'd like to get started with the plans. I assume King Constellation had relayed his thoughts to you?"

Princess Sophia Libra


"And there he goes again, trying to charm everyone." Sophia thought to herself. Prince Galaxy's obvious boredom was grating on her nerves, as was Princess Taurus sweetness but she'd forgive her, and she was tempted to walk up and smack, or strangle, him. She was still trying to figure out why someone would go to war over this simple thing, because both party's were at fault, not just one or the other. She took a breath though to calm down and smiled slightly. "Prince, thank you for the meal, and please thank the creators of such fine craftsmanship." Sophia guessed Galaxy didn't even realize how much work it was to run a castle, let alone a nation.

Sophia almost glided to a chair, not really noticing where she sat though it was across from Capricorn, as she pondered how this meeting would go. She finely came back around when Prince Capricorn started speaking, and she picked a couple of small items to eat while she listened. "The prince probably wouldn't remember a thing like that," She thought passively while mentally applauding Capricorn for his bluntness. "Now Prince, forgive my bluntness, but you need to engage in this, because war is not a game. People live and die, doing what you tell them to, so I recommend you get your act together, quit acting like a child, and think." Afterwards she continued eating like nothing had happened, though she was watching them all for reactions.

" I think the thought on everyone's mind here is that the trigger for this war that was long in the coming is absolutely ridiculous. The actions of our young prince here are not a means to start a war on. I know Queen Stars and King Constellation were already at each others throat over how The Land of High should be ruled. But honestly, i think it was a bit childish of Queen Stars to use your actions, no offense Prince Galaxy, to declare war." Amira said, moving across the room as she did and taking a seat a couple spaces away from Prince Capricorn.

She sat up straight and placed her sickle staff next to her. The food in front looked absolutely delicious but she told herself she would eat later when the meeting was over. "Never speak with a mouth full of food, my young child, it is very improper of a Princess." Her mothers words drifted through her mind as she looked over at Princess Libra as she spoke. "Just recently a Princess and already talking like she's been one for years. She's a strong girl, A trait she'll need most in this world." Amira thought to herself. She rested her eyes on Prince Capricorn.

He was an old friend that has earned her full respect for more than one reason. He used to visit their kingdom often because Amira's mother was dead set on getting to two to marry. "Oh Little Amira. He'll make a fine husband. He's proper and has a good head on his shoulders. It will do you some good to have a man like him around." She shook her head, As they got older her mother gave up on trying to force them together but she never stopped urging Amira to make more of an effort to try to make it possible. Amira was just to busy, she had a kingdom to rule now. If love came, it would, but she wasn't going to neglect her kingdom because of her mothers fantasy. Besides, Prince Capricorn was a good man but they didn't even know each other well enough to have an attraction towards each other. He was just a friend to her.

Amira returned her eyes to Prince Galaxy. His improper-ness rubbed her the wrong way just a little. She knew he was young and thought he had the world at his feet like most young princes and princesses, She had no ill feelings towards him. But to her, growing up under strict rules, it was no excuse.

❝Patience and time do more than strength or passion.❞ ~ Jean de La Fontaine

Their horses trotted side by side, both riding side saddle due to their outfits. The sun had just begun to peak over a violet mountain head of them, but the sun glare was only minimal. They travelled on an average size dirt road, though calling it a road was an overstatement. It was really more of a path, one that had been worn and widened over the years. Both Princess were familiar with the land, well enough to know where to go. Gwen still felt a bit sleepy, and her gaze lay in the distance lazily. Her shoulders slumped a bit, the very idea of war and conflict made her a bit tired. Her body didn't fight the rocking the horse made as it walked, so she lulled from side to side like a boat sitting on the water. Alless she propped upright, her lower back at a constant arch, shoulders back and sitting tall and proud. She liked excitement, but also the relaxing journeys on horses.
It had been awhile since she had seen Prince Galaxy, or anyone else for that matter, and social events had a feeling about them that Alless enjoyed no matter the reason of the gathering. She liked to have fun, in anyway that was available to her. Dancing, drinking, just talking. She was easy enough to entertain, and made herself amused easily enough. Sometimes she found it difficult to entertain people like Gwen for long periods of time, mainly because Gwen's attention could be easily lost. If what you were doing didn't involve her enough or didn't interest her, Gwen usually stared off into space about more fascinating things. Alless longed to be able to see what Gwen could, the captivation in Gwen's eyes made it seem as if she were looking into a whole other world no one could touch.
Growing up Alless had rarely had much of a childhood, and she lacked greatly in the imagination department. She wasn't one to "play pretend", because nothing she did was much of a game. When she lies or acts it's for a reason, an ulterior motive, and usually it's the only way she knows how to get what she wants.
Alless glanced at Gwen now, who's hair lit up like glossy silk in the sun. The long locks fell down around her, the blonde looking nice against the light blue dress she wore. The dress was mostly loose, only fit to her body at the waist and bust. The sleeves hung down slightly below her arms, and the skirt of the dress looked elegantly heavy. There was no fluffiness about the dress, it did not puff out like an umbrella as many princess dresses do. Of course if it did they wouldn't be riding horses. Her own dress was different from Gwen's. It was still fancy and lovely yes, the detail on it sparkled as any princess's would, but it was tighter fitting, and showed off more of Alless's figure.
As they reached a fork in the road, Gwen mentioned that a servant of hers had informed her about the meeting for the neutrals, and suggested she go there instead, rather than feel useless at the kings meeting. Alless reluctantly agreed, she didn't like much to be alone.



Gwen snapped the reins of her horse, picking up the pace slightly. It might've been easier taking a carriage or something but she enjoyed this more than she would've in a box like situation. She was nearing Vincent's castle, so the nature around her became more forest-like and full of more life. She liked the trees, and the green grass. And when the wind blew gently she could smell ever so slightly the hint of flowers.
As a child in her castle her parents were always unsure about letting her roam about the grounds. Built up on a large hill, it could be dangerous. She spent most of her time by the window just watching, mostly the waterfalls pound into the large pool below. When she was a bit older, they'd let many servants accompany her down the path of the rocky hill into the gardens of wild flowers. She absolutely loved flowers, and the servants would venture off to each find her a different one, while she layed in the grass and imagined the shapes of clouds.
Many times she wished she could go father than just the gardens, hoping to see more, for she read enough about adventure and exploring, but dared not ask her parents. They were too protective of their little Gwen, an only child, so she spent most of her time dreaming of things to make up for it. Her parents had often tried having more children, but it hadn't worked out. A couple ended in miscarriage, some never worked, and the one who died at birth also took her mother.
It was about midday now, and Vincent's castle came into view. It was large with bridges and towers, its style much more modern than hers, but still had an old money feel about it. It was slightly Gothic in the large square parts, as well as the thin pointy towers. It was very beautiful and as she neared the entrance she almost completely missed the servant trying to help her off her horse. She'd been admiring the castle so much that he startled her when he spoke.
She jumped a little and turned to his voice, then laughed lightly as he apologized. "No need sir," she told the man, "the fault was mine." He helped her off her horse and lead it away, as another servant guided her into the castle.
The doors to the meeting room opened to reveal the three already present sat down, and a bellowing voice to introduce her.
"Announcing her highness, Princess of Sagittarius."
She lifted the sides of her dress in order to give a small curtsy, then gracefully took a seat among the others.



It didn't take long for Alless to reach the Galaxy castle, it wasn't her first time nor was it the last. She hopped off her horse long before a servant came to take it to a stable, mainly because she was tired of sitting on it. She held the reins and lead it up the way, holding her dress up with her other hand as to avoid getting it too dirty. The Prince kept the castle grounds fairly polished, or rather his servants did. She doubted he even knew about the state of cleanliness the outside of his castle was. Not that it really mattered anyway.
A servant did escort her inside the castle, another leading her horse away. As she walked through the large halls her shoes made echoes. Occasionally she'd stop to ask the servant about a painting or two, easily taking her time though she was a bit late.
The doors to the throne room were opened for her, which she was always grateful for considering she didn't like to touch doorknobs or handles. As she entered she could feel the slight tension in the room between the three guests and Prince Galaxy already. See realized the king was not here, nor would he be anytime soon. She smiled what could be considered her signature smile, mischievous but charming. Only the one corner of her mouth turned up slightly, but a slight eye brow raise and the lighting up of her eyes all came together.
She ignored the attention, or more of fed off of it. Considering the three other guests were all looking towards Prince Galaxy, they must be waiting for his answer. She took this as a good time to go greet him.
"Your majesty," she mused, "pleasure to see you again." she curtsied slightly and held out her hand for him to kiss it. She then turned to the others, nodding to them as a greeting.

Sebastian frowned when listening his guests. Before he got time to answer, Alless approached him. Sebastian took her hand and and kissed it. ”Ah, Princess Aquarius. I'm so glad your on my side, darling.”

He turned towards others. ”First of all, no. My father didn't tell me his plans. We all assumed he's coming back in time but as you can see he's not here. Secondly. Taurus.” he rose up and walked next to the table and hit his fist on it. ”I'm not guilty! I was set up. It all was Queens plan. I did nothing!”

He closed his eyes trying to calm himself down. ”My apologies.” he said after while and his charming smile returned to his face. ”But I'm well aware that you're not here to help me. It's because of my father you're here. At least three of you thinks that I actually did something. But the truth is that I was invited there. I went there, of course, but before anything happened, I was thrown out of the castle. ”

Sebastian walked to the window. ”Princess Libra, I forgive your bluntess but I'm not going to be in charge of this war. It's not my job.”

Prince Darcy Montel Capricorn


Prince Darcy kept his eyes focused on his folded hands while listening to the Princesses speak. Princess Libra took the words right out of his mouth. There is that initiative which he holds respect for. She's still inexperienced, but she has character. And Darcy muses that the Kingdom of Libra couldn't have gone on for five years without proper ruling, so he should really trust Sophia more. It's difficult for him, however, because although he relates reliability with success, he also relates it to experience. It takes more than just lessons and rules to know how to have your people flourish. But her maturity for the subject had impressed him quite, nonetheless.

Eyes still focused on his hands, he listened to Amira intently. Her speaking voice had brought up several memories from his past. Her voice was just like her mother's: soothing and soft like silk. He remembers when he would visit along with his siblings. Often his older and youngest brother would go wild, whittling away at Amira's patience. He can't remember if they've ever set her off, but he's seen her come close.

Darcy coughed quietly, masking the slight chuckle the memory had elicit.

He still can't quite be sure why Amira's mother had them visit often. His older brother had always said it was for "special reasons." Darcy assumes that marriage was the plan, but he doubts it. His brother is seven years older than the two- why would her mother want that to happen with Amira? Darcy remembers the time he expressed this to his older brother. When told, he laughed.

Princess Aquarius arrived at the meeting, and as she walked in, Darcy's eyes followed. No sounds were made, but he groaned internally. "Princess Aquarius," he greeted, with the same monotonous voice he has when he greets anyone. He could only hope she wouldn't mess with him today. He met eyes with her briefly, then watched Prince Galaxy.

Prince Darcy remained quiet during his highness's little fit, processing every word that he had said. When he was finished, Darcy was the first to respond. "Prince Galaxy. It would be best if you had not made assumptions. We all have our reasons for being here." Prince Darcy sat back in his chair and put one leg over another. "The reason this war had started was because Queen Stars is exasperated with the King's ruling. Your highness, you were used as a scapegoat." He closed his eyes, calculating. "Like I said before, we all have our reasons for siding with the King. By siding with the King, we are helping the cause of the King's people, including your highness's reputation. Therefore regardless of our own motives, you are still receiving the benefits. But this war is more important than whether or not people believe you've been promiscuous." Darcy sat forward. "I am not asking that you become the King. I ask that you cooperate. It may not be your job, but my people, your people, the princesses' people- their lives are at stake. For once, at least while your father is gone, accept the responsibilities you've been given as an authority figure. Don't let your name be your sole motivation for this war."

Darcy had much more to say on this subject, but he relaxed in his seat, letting it all sink in.

Princess Sophia Libra


Sophia looked down at her lap and pulled her temper back in, but it was difficult, for she really wanted to smack some sense into The Prince. She took in some quiet, yet deep breaths to center herself before she looked back up. Sophia looked up just at the time Prince Capricorn coughed, and she saw a slight twinkle in his eye, so clearly he was covering something. She raised an eyebrow, but otherwise ignored the cough and looked to The Prince and Princess Aquarius. ”Princess Aquarius, what a pleasure it is to see you among us.” Sophia said, putting on a bland and bored facade to cover her annoyance with The Prince.

She continued nibbling at the food in front of her, listening to Capricorn speak when two ideas hit at the same time. The first was to make a point to The Prince about “jobs,” though Capricorn had covered it with far more tact then she ever could, but the second could possibly change the war. Sophia took a moment to finalize the thought before she began speaking. ”You know, it’s obvious that the Queen has already spread her story of what happened, but we need to get The Prince’s story out, and fast, while spreading the real reason this war is coming.” She said, drumming her fingers on the table, her excitement rising, and she sat up straighter. ”We’d have to send various types of people into the other nations to get it to spread, but it’s a risk that I know many of my people would be willing to take, even I would be willing to do some myself. I think we must make the people of the other nations wonder, and maybe question their Queen’s ruling, setting unrest in the very foundations of her war.”

Sophia leaned back against her chair, taking a breath, a slight smile of triumph on her lips. The Queen would not last if she could not keep up her propaganda and control over the people under her.

Sebastian walked to Sophia, took her hand gently in his and kissed it slightly while bowing down. ”Ah, your plan is music to my ears. I would be more than happy if you could take care of it Sophia. Or you prefer Princess Libra, sweetie?”

He turned towards Darcy next. ”I'm sorry if I sounded rude Prince Capricorn. I understand there's peoples life at stake and I wish to avoid it. But as I said I'm not going to be in charge of this. I would just cause more harm than good.” he laughed. ”I can admit it. I don't have any experience and, believe me in this, I don't want any unnecessary victims. That's why we need someone who has experience in war and can come up with strategy.”

”I would suggest Allessandra. What you say, beautiful?” Sebastian flashed a smile to her.

Allessandra Aquarius

❝It is not enough to conquer; one must learn to seduce.❞ ~ Voltaire


Alless's eyes lit up delightfully when Prince Darcy greeted her by her title. There was a joy she felt in seeing him, though not one he shared. She liked to toy with him, almost like a game. He didn't much appreciate this, but Alless wasn't one to consider others. He was very up-tight seeming according to her, and loosening bolts was a hobby of hers.
She gave a small cunning smile to those who also acknowledged her, only one corner of her mouth turning upwards. Her eyes narrowed slightly, chin up, glancing below her to them. She gently brushed her hair long pale pink hair over her shoulder as she took her place among the other three. Stitting there she placing her hands neatly in her lap. She never slouched, more like posed. Her positions were usually provocative and confident, intimidating and seductive. Back arched, shoulders back, head up. Her curves were rarely hidden, the only thing straight and narrow about her was her nose, which was fairly aquiline.
Blah, blah, blah. She thought as she watched Prince Darcy speak, wondering if he ever got bored of himself. He was intelligent, she'd give him that, at least displayed his knowledge of the politics happening. She couldn't honestly say she understood everything. She'd sided with the King merely because the rumour the Queen had spread was stupid in her opinion. She could care less about the ladies in waiting, what angered her was the fact the Queen was portraying women as helpless creatures. The idea of damsels in distress infuriated Alless. Don't mark her as a feminist though, on the contrary she does not believe women and men are equal. She finds there are advantages and disadvantages, mostly her advantage is manipulation using her sex appeal.
Princess Sophia then spoke, talking about rumours and gossip about the war. What was this, middle school? Personally she saw little help with that, being that people will talk about whatever they think regardless of what we try to spread. It may help, she supposed, if people thought more to side with the king, but on the other hand the peasants wouldn't be doing much anyway other than living their daily lives as citizens. What ever happened to actions speak louder than words? It's a war isn't it? Where's the fight.
