Karena's Wedding Preparations

Guest Poster: Karena

As I am getting married to Wesley Crusher in two days, all the wedding preparations are under way.

The Oracle of Wisdom is being laid out in all it's decoration, and my fellow amazons are making sure that their best armour is polished in time for the ceremony.

My mischevous sister Nexa takes me to the top of the Hill of Truth, where we oversee the main city of our planet Wondawowman. Sometimes, I cannot be sure if she is playing tricks on me. She was always jealous of me getting Wesley instead of her.

"Sister." she says, "Our planet will be joyful when you and Wesley get married. It will indeed to be an honour to be acting as Best Woman for you, when the weddings take place."

As we are a female-dominated society, wedding roles are reversed compared to what takes places in most Federation planets.

"Don't forget, sister Karena." Nexa continues, "I shall be putting the pre-wedding bodypaint on you tonight, to ensure that you have good health, luck and fertility throughtout your marriage."

"Just make sure you get it right, Nexa." I reply, "We can't afford to have the wrong symbols painted on, it will look ridiculous."

"Oh, you can rely on me, sister." Nexa answers, in a somewhat sly voice.


Later that night, Nexa is carefully administering the paint on my back. It is only meant to stay on a short time, but is essential to be there when the wedding service is going on.

"How is it going, Nexa." I ask.

"Just beautifully, sister." she replies, "Those who see it will think it is just right."

Valana, one of my amazonian friends enters the tent. Nexa tries to push her out.

"Whatever are you having THAT on your back for, Karena?" exclaims Valana.

"Why?" I say, "What's wrong?"

"Well," Valana answers, "It's a traditional dragon design, which all amazonians have when they get married, but it's not Elisia, the Dragon of Good Luck and Fertility, but instead, you have Morosia, the Dragon of Misery."

"Is it?" asks Nexa in mock innocence, "Silly me! I'm always getting the two mixed up!"

I quickly kick Nexa out of the tent, and get Valana to adjust the design to show the dragon Elisia on my back.

The Dragon of Misery ought to be renamed Nexa!

Feed Nexa to the Dragon!

Nepharia said...

Cool....I'll have to have Nexa oversee my next tattoo.

Titania Starlight said...

Nice dragon. But what an evil sister!

Linda said...

Nothing like having a jealous and vindictive sister messing up the wedding plans ... sigh!

Epiphany said...

Yet another reason I'm grateful to be an only child! Nexa should be relegated to usher status after that prank. Grrr!

I"m not a trekkie but your inclusion of popular stars like Briney and Whoopie is hilarious!

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Poor Karena!

The Curmudgeon said...

Yes, Nexa truly is a Dragon Lady.

Nexa seems to have gone down in popularity. Just the sort of sister a bride-to-be wants.

Remember everybody...the next post is the wedding! It's a two part one!

But of course, I must assume (a dangerous practice--I know) that the Bride will take her walk down the aisle in a backless dress designed by Bob Mackie (Cher's designer)? I can just imagine the "gasps" among the gathered from different Galaxies at this site as the Bride passes each pew! :D)

By any chance, is the Captain giving the Bride away? Yes, a tough job. But someone must do it. (If he can't, I'll have a word with Sir Richard Branson and try my best to stand in!). Remember, one never knows what might happen on the USS Enterprise during this delightful diversion! ;) said...

Ohhhh... Nexa is a boob!

Vegeta said...

so glad I don't have siblings

I love the Dragon tattoo but not one that brings Misery!

Mrs. Mogul said...

I want to call my baby NEXA!!!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Mrs M, I hope I get the credit if you call you new baby Nexa!

Michael, if you read the earlier post about the wedding procedure, it will by Wesley that walks down the aisle, given away by Beverly, as they are a female-dominated society.
