The men had been chased out (even the Bannik) and it was time for the dressmaker (a literal domestic goddess) on loan from the Faerie Court to get the bridesmaids fitted for their dresses.

She looked at the arrayed girls and smirked. "Aside from height, you all seem to be the same body type. That should make things simpler."

[For Gwynn]

Gwynn still wasn't sure exactly what she was supposed to do, but it was Tim's mother that wanted her here with the others, so she was going to do her best to make a good impression.

It was just that she didn't usually dress in formal wear -- except for royal banquets or the Prom and Homecoming back at Fandom.

This was gonna be like all of those put together!

Teleri was currently getting measured. She typically went with sundresses these days, but back when she was trying to make it as an actress, she'd been to a few formal events. Eleziane of course had grown up in a Faerie court, and depending on the phase her daddy was in, she might dress very formally indeed.

T'ing tried to suppress a grimace. "Don't think I've worn a dress since my older sister's wedding." she muttered to Gwynn.

Gwynn shook her head slightly. "I haven't worn a dress since Phillip wanted me there for a diplomatic meeting with the Ambassador from France."

She'd had two daggers hidden in her dress even then.

"That beats me." T'ing grinned. "The closest I got to that sort of thing was with the Fae, and the situation never really called for formal dress."

"I don't understand," Gwynn confessed. "What is the reasoning behind having bridesmaids. Are we responsible for safety or avenging the bride if she is later wronged?"

Somewhere Tim was either facepalming or laughing and not knowing why.

"Eve said we were like a very fancy honor guard."

Said bride chose that moment to emerge from where she had been immersed in other various details. "Given all our histories, I wouldn't say no to any of that." she smiled. "But that would make us a special case."

Gwynn looked embarrassed that Tim's mother had heard her, but she quickly got her manners back in control.

"I highly doubt that anyone wants to be foolish enough to bother you on your wedding day, ma'am."

Not in the least because Gwynn would indeed do her best to protect Tim's mother no matter what the cost.

"This is the first time I have been a part of something as important as this."

If you didn't count her crowning Richard -- which she didn't think she had even told Tim about.

"Oh!" the dressmaker said. "That reminds me. Gwynn it it? I understand you're main specialty is archery?"

Gwynn turned to the dressmaker with a puzzled expression.

"Yes, ma'am. I'm the best archer in the -- my father's army back home."

She kept herself from saying King. She trusted Tim's mother and Teleri and T'ing with finding out her secret, but she didn't know the dressmaker.

Fair enough.

Tim's mother I need to hunt down these books in my basement and find out her name facepalmed. "Gwynn I'm so sorry, I forgot you weren't there when we discussed this. It was a kind of last minute. We're having the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids go armed for the ceremony. We're hoping this will be just ceremonial, but like I said, you never know."

"I don't suppose you have a bow and quiver that would go well with formal dress?" the dressmaker asked.

"It is much better to be safe rather than sorry, as people have informed me many times," Gwynn said to Tim's mother with a smile.

She looked at the seamstress. "I do not have one --" at hand "--but I believe I can probably procure one."

By her and Eve going shopping as there was no way she was asking Philip for one as he would ask too many bloody questions.

And then he would want to come and see her dressed formally.

The colors of the dresses were red and green, and had a bit of an Asian look to them.

"We'll want to allow for freedom of movement of course." the seamstress said. "As usual men have it easy in that department. Well as long as they don't mind getting their tuxes dirty."

"They didn't mind getting them dirty at prom." T'ing offered. She turned to Gwynn. "We've told you that story right?"

Now Gwynn's grin blossomed as she shook her head at T'ing.

"No, I don't think you've told me that story as of yet."

It sounded like it might be a story that almost beat the story of her and Tim having children showing up for them the day after Prom...

Teleri tsked. "Faith, Timmy's been neglecting his story telling. 'Twas his and T'ing's senior year, just after he left yer isle the first time. The great witch of Slavic fame, 'tis Slavic I believe, Baba Yaga-"

"Bitch is more like it." Eleziane grumbled.

"Anyway," T'ing giggled. "Baba Yaga wanted to unleash an army of monsters on the world. And we wound up having the final deciding battle at prom." She left out the part where Tim and she were dating at the time.

Considering that around that time Gwynn had almost been killed by a maniac with a knife in the woods and then started dating Conner when she recovered, she wouldn't have gotten jealous.

Gwynn snickered, shaking her head. "Your prom sounds like how the graduations at the island always go."

"What happened at your graduation?" T'ing asked.

"Wait!" Eleziane said, "First we have to tell you how prom ended."

"Ah ye only want te brag 'bout how you were voted Prom Queen." Teleri giggled. "Sure an' how yer daddy mistook herself's flyin' house fer a ringwraith an' brought it down on top of her."

Gwynn tilted her head. "Ringwraith?"

She smiled shaking her head. "Let's see, I was turned into a wee version of myself, then a fox and then I helped my class fight off a really huge chimera. It was quite a bit within a short period of time -- especially as I had never told anyone from back home about how strange the island can be sometimes. They were not happy to watch the fight."

That was an understatement, Gwynn.

Tim's mother winced. "I'm actually kind of glad I slept through that whole thing." she said, shaking her head. "Baba Yaga put a sleeping spell on me as part of her plan to extort Tim." she explained.

"You also missed some embarrassing things I bet Tim's glad you slept through too." T'ing agreed. "Oh, and a Ringwraith is a monster from the Master of the Bracelets. Eleziane's father was obsessed with it at the time."

"Master of the Bracelets," Gwynn said with a small smile. "I tried to watch those movies, but I got a bit upset at the bad archery and stupidity of walking into traps with their eyes wide open."

"Well you know, characters in stories can only be as smart or competent as is convenient for the story. No matter they've been portrayed in the past." Eleziane said. "I keep having to remind Neil of that."

Gwynn smiled. "I just tend to get really annoyed when the so called archer is being stupid," she admitted.

"I haven't actually seen the movies yet." T'ing confessed. "But I have read the books."

Eleziane grimaced. "Yeah me too. Daddy insisted. You've got my condolences."

"Technically the movies haven't even come out yet. Though that's not really an issue for any of us. Neil's constantly showing borrowing movies from Tim from the future."

Gwynn laughed softly. "I have not yet gotten used to all the different times and worlds and futures," she confessed.

"Yeah, I guess you kind of win in that regard too. We only have to get used to at most, a decade. You've had to deal with a few centuries."
