A civilized art, to be sure. Absolutely required at court, a must for any gentleman.. And one of the better ways to gain a patron, Porthos tells me. Certes, I may manage a minuet or farandole as well or better than the next courtier, but give me a lively jig or reel for preference any day! These court waltzes are so bloodless compared to the country dances of my childhood; a man of fire and iron as any Musketeer should be has but little taste for such a bland vintage.

Yet even the strongest calling of a revel wild is drowned out by the song of clashing steel. A true dance of blades is a thing of fierce beauty and sharp-edged skills, partners locked in opposition yet moving as one. Blood rushes high and fierce in your veins as you match patterns with your foe, and though death may come with your next heartbeat here and now, you are alive!

Hot Gascon blood accounts for much of it, I fear, but I thank God daily that I have a king and country to fight for. The dance may be glorious, but to live for one's next partner... I have seen what that has done to men.

OOC: This is such a perfect response for D'Artagnan. *fangirl flail* Bravo!

I could not agree more. It will be interesting to see how long you will remain conscious when His Majesty requires our presence for his next ball. Often do we carry challenges to see who can endure the longest.

I recall you and I still having a certain engagement that is long due.

I shall remember not to bet on anyone besides Porthos, then..

*Sly smile* If you require a lesson so badly, all you had to do was ask. When would you wish satisfaction?

*Cheeky little devil, isn't he?*

Oh, you'd be surprised.

*grins broadly*

Name the time and the place, young Gascon. Perhaps if I leave the choice of when and where in your hands, you will not be late, mm? *arches his brows*

*Innocent* And just who can outdo him in this rarefied field?

*A slightly wolfish smile* Behind the Luxembourg at the stroke of noon, shall we say? Assuming I do not find myself delayed or with yet more duels to fight, with any luck we may make an end of this so-vexing matter.

It varies from time to time.

Keep your mouth locked tight and I am convinced you can journey through the crowds without worriment. I will be there. I trust you will be there on schedule this time.

I am surprised..

What kind of Gascon would I be then? *Smirk* I shall endeavor, sir.

((Mmm, new post? Shall I?))

Dear Mun,

Unless you request hiatus or post a response (#156,157,158 or 159) immediately, I'll have to remove your muse onefor_all under the three strikes rule -- I would have done so already, but I know you were having computer problems.
