Guests have arrived at the Palais de Champagne for the traditional Coronation Banquet and Ball.
Pure Magic; Part 55
Pure Magic; Part 53
So I’m adding a base colour to the rough lines in Black Ink on separate layers. By shifting the layer transparency I’ll be able to change the levels of colours and details, including shadows and highlights, later on.
Anyhow, here’s the beginning of the story:
The night-time darkness descended quickly in Autumn, chasing away the warmth of sunset and the ice-blue of the sky as I got off the bus. In front of me the Government determined businesses, all cafes and restaurants, housed in an elongated warehouse-like building that’s grey façade shone with the lights from within.
Climbing out of bed, you put on the uniform that arrived in the mail, eyes still glued tight with last night’s wakefulness. Whispering, you ask the universe for your coworkers to be nice, for this job to be an ordinary 9 to 5 (unlike your last one) and for everything to go smoothly. You hopped in your cute purple car and drive off to work
Salmon: “ zzz “
Arriving back at the Palais de Champagne, HIM and his family stopped for a quick balcony wave before heading back inside. Pundits had thought HIM may forgo this tradition for security concerns but it is said that HIM would not opt out of many traditions on this day. There are many breaks with traditions in these images however. HRH the Duke of Rothsey from the Kingdom of Scots joined the Imperial Family, the first Fiancé to be allowed to join the family on the balcony. Also breaking tradition, is the allowance of the Duke of Burgundy and his family, once more signaling healing within the Imperial family.
As the Imperial Crown Jewels sit upon the high altar, His Excellency Bishop Spencer of Windensen asks HIM the following questions:
S: David Jean Marc Louis, will you be true to the People of Pierreland? In word and deed?
D: I will.
S: David Jean Marc Louis, will you be honorable in your role as representative of Pierreland to the nations?
D: I will.
S: David Jean Marc Louis, will you devote your life to the people of this nation? Even if it asks for you life?
D: I will.
Bishop Spencer says the prayers of blessing as he anoints the hands of HIM.
S: O Watcher, bless these hands of your servant David, may he use them to do your work. To uplift the people of this Empire, to uplift his family and to uplift himself.
S: O Watcher, bless the mind of your servant David, may he rule his people with wisdom and justice, all the days of his life.
Bishop Spencer then bestows the imperial regalia to HIM and officially places the Imperial Crown on the head of HIM before proclaiming.
S: Long live His Imperial Majesty David I. Emperor of Pierreland, King of Winden, Prince of Les terres oubliées, Defender of the Faith, and Supreme Commander of the Imperial Pierreland Military. Vivat imperator Davidus!
The congregation: Vivat imperator Davidus!
Moving to a separate platform, HIM sits on a throne to receive the oaths from the Dukes of the Realm.
Michael Duke de la Croix: I, Michael, Duke de la Croix…
Jeffery, Duke of Bordeaux: I, Jeffery, Duke of Bordeaux…
Gustav, Duke of Calloway: I, Gustav, Duke of Calloway…
Michael, Duke of Siene: I, Michael, Duke of Siene…
Jean Charles, Duke of Burgundy: I, Jean Charles, Duke of Burgundy…
All the dukes together: …become your liege man of life and limb and truth and earthly honors, bearing to you against all men that love, move or die, so help me Watcher and the Holy Dame.
One of the Priests behind HIM asks: Will, you the assembled, call this worshipful prince the right heir of the realm to have him as their king and become subjects unto him and submit themselves to obey his commandments?
Congregation: We will it and we grant it. Be it so! Be it so! Amen.
St Windenburg Cathedral | 9:30 am
First of the Imperial Family to arrive are the Duchesses of Siene and Burgundy followed behind by Lady Minerva Valois. It is traditional for the Imperial family to wear white or Imperial Uniforms
Now arriving are the Aides de Camp of HIM Emperor David I. Dressing in their red robes of Dukedom, the Dukes of Siene and Bordeaux enter first, followed by the Duke of Burgundy and Admiral Florian Moreau. Admiral Moreau is the only non-noble Aide de Camp to HIM and the only one with current active military service.
Last to arrive is HIM the Dowager Empress, Marie Isabelle and HIH the Princess Imperial, who arrived in the state Winden Coach. HIM wore a beautiful long sleeved white gown and gloves designed by Theo Charten and topped it off with the Mourning crown, a small crown often worn by Dowager Empress’s at the coronations of their children, the only pop of color being her golden wedding band. Meanwhile, HIH the Princess Imperial wore a stunning sleeveless white ball gown also designed by Theo Charten. HIH wore a simple necklace given to her by her father as well as her engagement ring which is currently hidden from view.
Charles I Blvd | Windensen
Making their way down Charles I Blvd are His Imperial Majesty followed by his Aides de Camp.
Following the 12th Imperial foot guards is the Imperial state coach escorted by the Imperial Household cavalry.
Citizens of Pierreland cheer as HIM gives the crowd a small wave on his way to this most sacred moment.
Directly behind HIM are the Dukes of Bordeaux and Siene. The Duke of Bordeaux is the childhood best friend of HIM while the Duke of Siene is distantly related to HIM through HIM Charles I, with the Duke of Siene being related to Charles I’s youngest son. the choice of the Duke of Siene is considered controversial due to the father of the Duke of Siene’s attempted assassination of HIM Charles II, which led to the heirs to the Dukedom of Siene being barred from the succession which includes the current Duke.
Behind the Dukes of Bordeaux and Siene are the Duke of Burgundy and Admiral Florian Moreau. The decision to make the Duke of Burgundy an aide de camp to HIM has been seen as controversial to more conservative parts of Pierreland society, since the Duke of Burgundy is a descendent of Louis XIX, who is nicknamed The Brat Emperor. Louis XIX, attempted to marry his mistress and legitimize his bastard son on the death of his father, HIM Charles I, and when he could not, The Duke of Valois abdicated the throne to his brother, who then became HIM Charles II with Louis XIX becoming the much maligned Duke of Valois. Admiral Florian Moreau however is a choice praised by all circles. The Admiral is an old friend of the Imperial family, close with HIM Henry III due to their time in the Imperial Naval Academy together.
