Character ties and relationships anyone? How 'bout some good old fashioned plotting? Just to get some ideas in mind at least. I'll try to roleplay with everyone possible (I always feel bad if I neglect anyone on a forum no matter what) so anything that may come in mind feel free to ask or think up with me.

It sounds actually as if everything could go possibly wrong with that meeting! As for a past!thread, that would be incredibly lovely. I have no idea what sort of encounter may come from them, but he does prefer to be publicly known as the best piano tutor in the city as to being a Dignitary. So perhaps something with music? Or of course, the government can easily be involved with the military, so of course we have many viable options.
Hello, my name is Gilbert Beilschmidt. I just distinctly don't like you and want to ruin your shit for my own entertainment......since it seems you're going to tutor my cousin at the piano, we need to figure out OUR relationship past the basics don't you think? xD

Well, Erzs is pretty fond of the piano, actually, what with that being one of the few things she enjoyed in her childhood, so we could do something with that!
... ACTUALLY, A BRILLIANT *coughyeahrightcough* IDEA JUST HIT ME.
So past thread, and this will definitely involve a piano. And Erzs during one of her feminine bouts. So she's wearing a pretty nice dress, looks to be high middle class, appreciating music, and thus Roderich has no idea she has anything to do with the army at first. So the meeting goes well, and then after, well, two possibilities.
A) She ends up mentioning her active role in the military, and he realizes she's the infamous Elliot/Lázsló the Brave the higher ups keep complaining about.
B) Nothing too terrible happens in their first encounter, but on their second or third one or something, Roderich comes across Erzsébet when she's in her military uniform and on one of her rounds and things get really awkward.

Well at least you're honest aren't you? I distinctly happen to not care for you myself, and find you far beyond rude but poorly mannered, which is rather insulting to me. And yet for someone who has such as well behaved cousin who seems to be rather skilled at the piano, I would be willing to put aside this family feud and instead focus on how to increase your dearest cousin's musical talent far beyond what any other tutor can do for her. Therefore, I believe a strict regime of practice may be necessary, but it can be for her benefit...especially if she can reach a level like my own playing and could perhaps make a profession of this skill. What do you say at least?
