Couple OTS

Event an unexpected party.

Antiope had trailed behind the other partygoers at a leisurely pace. She had heard the chatter about a party, a bonfire, some variety of festivities to follow suit. Excitement had filled the air, chasing away the misery of Vinter. For the locals, it was an important tradition to give thanks to something - someone? Antiope couldn't remember - meanwhile it seemed like a spectacle to behold for those who weren't from the valley. Even Antiope had to admit she was curious to know what this festival called Flame Feiring was about. Her curiosity had led her to join the caravan of others who were eagerly awaiting toe festivities, traversing across clear ice and snow. As they all neared, Antiope's eyes fixated on the pyre built before them that was already encased in roaring flames. As the traveling group dispersed, Antiope kept to the sidelines.

She watched from a distance, content to watch the other party revelers enjoy the scene for now. It wasn't unusual for the gilt mare to hang back, anyway. It allowed her to watch the crowd, to read others, to detect when something was amiss. It was leftover training from her war days that she had never shaken, but it had also saved her own skin once or twice. She didn't expect anything to go awry, but it never hurt to be cautious. After all, Antiope wasn't one for large social occasions; so hanging back to watch the scene gave her a good enough excuse to be a wallflower for the time being.

To not come wasn't an option. She was a sovereign now, so showing her face to those who resided in the valley would be a smart political move. Surely Antiope taking the throne by combat from her predecessor had spread. It would also give the gilt pegasus the opportunity to meet others who lived in the valley, perhaps even another sovereign or two.
