The site of the home to the New Babylon school of Ballet.

A large building that houses a main stage and several workshop stages along with a few offices a gym and a locker room. It is nothing fancy from the outside, but recently things have changed as the original owners were bought out and there seems to be a small board running it for now as anyone who looks into the city records will find the head of that board is a woman named Catherine Campbell. For those looking to to her they will find she currently resides not in the city but seems to share a name of a once well known dancer from Europe.


A certified letter is sent to the most obvious point of Reaching Marcus or an affiliate of his and it is addressed from the School.

Autarch,
I am Catherine Campbell. I wish to honor an old tradition from the past and cause not issues with my soon to be residence to your city. I humbly wish to introduce myself to you and your court before I take on permanent residance. I am sure with a little research you will be able to learn some about my past and maybe understand my reason for honoring a tradition from the past. Please send back any instructions to the New Babylon School of Ballet. I should be able to get any replies from there either by the time I arrive in your city or before with an associate takeing care of my new holdings there for me.

Sincerly,

Catherine Campbell

Elena opened up the fancy envelope with a raised brow. She was a classical cellist, sure, but ballet? She had nothing to do with that, ever. Glancing once again at the conspicuous address on the envelope, the young Toreador wondered whether this was some kind of a scam. Scanning the content of the page she had pulled out, she read and re-read the fancy writing. A nagging question found its way to a soft whisper that emanated from the confines of her slender white throat...

"Who the fuck....is Catherine Campbell?"

It did not help that the letter was CERTIFIED. Registered mail wasn't something she saw often - if at all. Why was she being mailed by this person?! Drawing her smartphone out of the confines of her jacket pocket, she quickly keyed a message to her lover and best friend.

Hey, Wasyli - did you just get a weird letter from some ballet diva? Let me know, xox - Elena

Having hit the 'sent' button, she pocketed the letter and went on about her business, trying not to weird herself out with this latest bit of possible chicanery.

Withdrawing the Note 10 from his jacket pocket he quickly read the transcribed message from Elena before replying to her.

Yep, don't think it would hurt to check it out, just one of those things I suppose from those of us who have been around longer than most, letter's that is. Want to meet up there or somewhere else?

Elena blinked, seeing Wasyli's message. In a way it made sense, since ballet and classical music were sort of.... intertwined. She keyed in a response rather quickly:

Well, I am not going to write this dame a letter, so let's just show up at say, 19 hundred hours, tomorrow night? If anything, we can check out the premises and see if anything is worth taking. Just kidding! XOXO

Victor was in his office at his home, going over the latest reports and figures for The Cybermachine. He really didn't like the name, but some of the clientele just loved it. Sighing inwardly, he sat the minutiae aside, and went to his mail. Seeing a letter that was sent Certified Mail, he raised an eyebrow at it as he grabbed the letter opener that was made from a Great War French Bayonet - filed down.

Slicing the envelope open, he extracted the letter and ran his eyes across the fancy script and hand written letters. Nodding to himself as he read it, his interest was slightly peeked. He hadn't seen a ballet in decades. Most of the ones on this side of the Pond...well sucked. Pulling out a sheet of his best Prantl paper and his favorite fountain pen, he began writing a response.

Miss Campbell,

It is quite a pleasure to see someone that still enjoys the fine art of ballet in this city. I have not been to a decent show since my time in Paris. The Salle Le Peletier is quite possibly the best Romantic Ballet I have ever seen. Thank you for your timely letter and desire to follow protocol that has been established for centuries. Rest assured, that I will personally be looking into who you are, and if your place of residence is any sign, I look forward to seeing you dance. Until then, know that the eyes of myself and my organization are upon you. Welcome to New Babylon.

Sincerely,

Vittoria LaGuardia

Signing the letter with a flourish, he sprinkled some sand across the page to soak up and excess ink before he folded it up, reaching for his wax stick. Heating it up, he dropped a small dollop onto the paper before pressing his signet into it. Once the letter was sealed and the wax dried, he called for his butler. "Dennis, see that this is delivered by hand within the hour to the New Babylon School of Ballet." The butler simply nodded and excused himself.

He was about to go back to his work, when he thought twice about it. Pulling out his smartphone, he shot a quick text message of to Wasyli.

Just got he most interesting letter in the mail. It appears we have a new resident in New Babylon.

After that was sent, THEN he went back to his paperwork.

Catherine arrives in a simple office she had so far setup in the school. She looks exhauseted and as if she has spent the last hour just working out or dancing as she is just dressed in a simple dancers training outfit. Looking now on the desk she finds the delivered reply from Victor. finiginering it lightly catherine looks it over but does not open it yet.

Marcus would not respond to the letter and had his majordomo pen some kind of a generic reply instead. With it, he included a check for five thousand dollars, as a donation to the New Babylon School of Ballet which obviously needed a better name. Maybe with such a generous new patron she could rename it to Valerian's School of Ballet? Time would tell.

For the time being, he would have the letter sent as is - snail mail - insured and registered, so that it took its sweet ass time but got there safely. No courier for some unaffiliated vampire. He did not trust people without allegiances. In his mind, they were more dangerous than The Circle.

Marcus exits thread. If Catherine wishes to communicate further by letter or text, feel free to nab Marcus in the Information Exchange forum.

His thumbs moved lightning quick as he fired off yet another response to Elena.

Wonderful, it's settled then. Tomorrow at 7pm. Doing anything tonight?

The sun settles and activity seems a bit more in the schools premises now. Catherine exits the office area wearing a fine blue gown and proceeds to move to seat before the practice stage as the instructors of the school prepare a first rehersal of the main troup since many had arrived here.

Great! Finally, they would both go to a cultured place that did not necessarily involve a blood orgy. What a treat! Giggling, she looked at the last bits of Wasyli's text to her before replying:

Tonight? Hmm, maybe a dinner and a movie. Wanna come? Could bring the dinner to...the movie...
