In which a plan quickly dissolves into chaos... )

a/n: Sorry for the INSANELY LONG HIATUS. I suck. A lot. My goal is to try and pump out another chapter this weekend. I'd like to push through this masquerade ball all at once-ish. I hate leaving you guys hanging in the middle of this wackiness!

I hope you guys were surprised/pleased with Lila's fiance! I honestly cannot remember how that thought process worked out exactly, but I kind of love them together a lot? Like, I didn't get to do much with them here, but I actually think they have the potential to be super adorable. I also tried really hard with Lila's characterization - to make her still sort of toe that line of being genuinely good hearted and still vaguely manipulative? Hope it worked out. I also love the moment where she questions Helga's feelings for Arnold. It's an important part of this story! The idea that Helga's love for Arnold may be something closer to a sense of obligation or habit at this point in time. She's pretty much the only person who doesn't seem to realize how much he's changed. I mean, she sees it, but she hasn't fully thought out what that means and isn't really trying to reconcile who he used to be with the man he's become. Um. Yes. Thoughts.

Also, regarding the bits of French - if any of it is misspelled/fucked up feel free to correct me! I copied the foods directly from how they appear in the menus in Dinner for Four/Valentine's Day. So... they ought to be okay, but cartoons y'know?
