Success

"May I press you to a scone?"

The clock ticks ever slower. The venerable courtiers drift about like autumn leaves, gossiping about people dead for three decades. They may be duller than dust, but they still wield considerable influence. And some of the gossip isn't too over-ripe.


Failure

"Excuse me, I have to go and groom the weasel..."

Dear Lord, but this gathering is endless. The conversation is drier than a vulture's wit. Surely you have better places to be? You leave early enough to be remarked upon.
