A little to the left..., it seemed like such a small thing, but Dagmar knew, everything had to be perfect. Including the cups lining up on the saucers. Admit it, you are obsessing! Fíli's first time over after officially courting didn't get this detail! The maiden pushed that thought aside, roughly even, and apologized to her late fiance even as she did such. She didn't mean to forget him, even for a moment, never would but...she needed to focus!

So much was riding on this. Everything in fact! Never-mind her youngest brother had already been married, a full week! That was what made the timing almost crucial. Dags had mulled over that too! She wanted to give the two space, but...also didn't want to wait too long before letting dear Líknví know of exactly how far her acceptance; nay joy! went. The girl had to be officially welcomed into the family not a moment too soon!

Dagmar wouldn't say she worried her own mother's reactions may have lacked.

A simple invitation to tea and biscuits, in an unused party room where to two could hopefully have privacy and she wouldn't have to worry about any of the boys coming through, was perhaps too casual, but Dags hoped it was just non-pressuring enough.

Of course conversation would be a sticking point without Fritz here, but...Dags felt confident she could make that work too! If she read an entire notebook of replies to her sunny questions she would be content and help it along even!

This was all about getting to know her new sister (Dags would even drop the technical in-law) and putting her at ease.

Fussing over proper social manners such as down to the detail of the cups may have seemed snobbish of the Noble's daughter, even rubbing it in Líknví's face, but Dagmar of course meant it in the opposite way. Líknví would get all of the attention to detail people once put to Dagmar herself! Pointless or no.

Liv's daughter then turned her attention to the tea biscuits themselves, and realized from what little Fritz had said that she had her work cut out for her even in selecting. Líknví apparently knew biscuits, making things herself, and so was likely to know if they were not good.

"There...", she stepped back and surveyed her work once more. "I think that will do it!". Now she just had to wait to see if Líknví would actually show.

It was all so overwhelming so as to be almost intimidating; of course Fritz would never make anything intimidating, not even the super personal and as his own hesitant reassurances on patience proved and guarded her hesitancies.

Not that her now husband wasn’t impulsive still, but it only made patience stand out the more!

She had a lot of in-laws to please though, and her mother-in-law most of all! Of course it was apparently always like that, and not to fault Liv either. She was only rightly so concerned. Kophas and Dagmar were easier in that she already knew they liked her, or didn’t disapprove at least.

The invitation to tea was proof of her new sister-in-law’s acceptance, and Líknví was grateful for the effort extended as it were, she was just also unsure for the same reasons Fritz had only dispelled so far even now, and Appearances and such things.

It shouldn’t be Lí’s fault if her new extended family looked bad in any way.

Yet Fritz, Kvas, Rian, they had all done so much over so many years to help her confidence, Lí tried to take some of it here to not disappoint her new sister also by refusing.

Still, even in a social fitting pale blue dress that many said went well with her eyes and Fritz had all but insisted she go pick out for herself, among other treasures, she tugged lightly at a plait bound lock held with a silver bird pin that was not Kvasir’s but had been about the only wrought metal she’d bought for its delicate from that even seemed to hold a branch and could be a dove and to have her own as it were.

Not that Kvasir’s own being her Something Borrowed hadn’t been so meaningful.

Straightening from her jitters, Líknví continued on, the sound of her boots almost being surprising still and after so long running about barefoot, soon reaching the door to the room and peering in.

Dagmar, she threw her made up sign for her sister in law, she was working on giving everyone one. Kophas was just a shoulder tap to indicate his bird, Andar’s sort of the signs for Gentle and Stable (the emotion) together. Dags of course was Sun and Bright in context at least, and if it came off.

Spotting her new sister, Lí walked in, giving a shy wave.
