The Ladies of the Octagonal Table

21 Conversations

Welcome to ye olde dayes of gentility and valour, when men donned ridiculously heavy armour and poked swords into eachother, whilst the women wisely stayed home, or languished in towers under heavy guard by the local fire-breathing dragon.

We ladies sit in the crystal castle, at the fabled Octagonal Table, warmed by a roaring fire. We await the return of our valiant men, and work diligently at our needlepoint, filling our days with feminine laughter, and discussing the news at court. Occasionally we shelter some poor princess from the wicked fairy that would turn her into their favorite form of amphibian. Of an evening, we may have a visit from the occasional overzealous suitor climbing in through the windows, or throwing a smiley - rose up into the balcony.
