I told [livejournal.com profile] gwacie:

We could play the [livejournal.com profile] reasie game. What do you want to hear about first? Ceremony? Food? Clothes? People? Wise advice?

She replied:

Start with the vigil :) Did you do a formal vigil? With a tent and things?

The question itself makes for an interesting bit of inter-kingdom anthropology: if I hadn't talked to [livejournal.com profile] sue_n_julia, I might not know what you mean about the tent. Vigils in An Tir are pretty free-form: usually there's a spread of food and the opportunity to talk to the person on vigil, sometimes in private, sometimes in a big group, but there's no real standard, and no requirement to keep non-peers from hearing the secret knowledge. "Formal" to me means "research vigils for knighthood and do the rituals involving a formal bath and clothing of a certain color". Since I was basing my ceremony on the Golden Fleece ceremony, and members of knightly orders were already knights, I didn't feel the need for the ritual bath. Instead, I made lots and lots of food.
