  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;
    November 19, 2014, 01:00:04 PM
  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD

  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?

  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM

    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)

"She did it! Oh! My! Gosh! She totally did it! He has to be some kind of incognito super musician and Miri lured him in with her violin like a siren or something. You owe me half your tips, Ozra," Livette declared practically quivering with excitement.

"Just because he has a guitar and is wearing a hood doesn't mean the guy is famous. It might just mean he's cold. Don't you remember the creeper with the shiny suit - that you swore was a director from Psyche - who turned out to be a used hovercraft salesman? ... Besides, you only get my tips if he signs you or introduces you to a producer. And Miri should get some too since she gave you your big break." Realizing that Livette was too busy preening by using a tea kettle as a mirror to listen, Ozra rolled her eyes for the fifth time that night and tugged on the blonde's apron. "Let's get this over with so I can say I told you so."

As the girls passed Mirielle, even she could pick up on Livette's anticipation through the haze of her playing. She carefully keyed in to her friend's emotions and eased them into her wordless song, transitioning the tune from her own memories to that of Livette's ever present desire to become famous. That was much safer territory than her own thoughts.

Ozra inclined her head as they approached the new customer, then smirked when she identified the tune Mirielle had shifted into playing: a version of Livette's song that she normally played during her customer roulette sequence. Except somehow it sounded even perkier than normal. A quick glance at Livette told her the blonde was too enamored with the "famous musician" to notice just yet. "Don't mind her," Ozra greeted the newcomer, jerking a thumb in her co-worker's direction. "She doesn't bite, but she may ask for an autograph. Or a contract."

"Oz~z~z~ra!" Livette exclaimed, tripling the syllables in protest. "I am not that uncouth." The now hush! was left unsaid, but her bright blue eyes spoke volumes. Turning her full attention back to their customer, she beamed up at him, trying her best to get a good look at his face from underneath his scarf. "Please allow me to introduce myself: I'm Livette and this is Ozra," she added, nodding her head to the brunette standing next to her. "We'd be happy to help you. Is there anything we can do? Would you like a seat? Some tea or coffee?" Would you please take your bloody scarf off so I can see you? Livette really, really wanted to ask that one but she bit her tongue only because it would prove Ozra's point if she said it aloud.

"I'll take four ounces of the dried mauja berries and sixteen inches of that sapphire ribbon please." Mirielle watched as the woman in charge of the market stall measured out her purchases and bundled them up in parchment paper, delighted that she could find the mauja berries at such a good price. If she could sweet talk Thorne into giving her some green tea leaves, Mirielle would blend them together to make an Atalantan flavored tea for Vaness. Exchanging some of her hard earned tips for the goods, Mirielle thanked the vendor, then quickly tucked her prize into her shopping basket under the small loaf of bread so Vaness wouldn't see it. "Now time for home!" she declared, mission accomplished for the day.

Today was one of the days she was thankful for all those lessons on weaving through crowds and dodging pedestrians. Market day tended to bring out not only the locals, but also the "off-landers" - folks not from Eurydice. They tended to get lost or distracted easily amidst all the hustle and bustle, stopping abruptly or back tracking and bumping into anyone not paying attention. Mirielle skirted around a particularly befuddled gaggle of women who were looking up instead of around - St. Serenity only knew why - and was about to take off for home when she heard a rather obnoxious voice shouting nearby.

Curiosity getting the better of her, Mirielle slipped back into the throng and eased her way over to where the voice was located. It took seeing one quick flash of his robe from within the crowd for her to let out an exasperated sigh. One of those silly crimson-contemplation-whatchamacallit-thingie-acolyte-people. Again.

Carefully threading her way to the front of the on-lookers, Mirielle was surprised to see that the acolyte's anger was directed at a girl close to her age. The strawberry-blonde haired young woman was carrying a travel pack and appeared a bit out of sorts, so she probably wasn't familiar with this particular local custom and had no clue why the man was turning a rather deep shade of angry purple in her direction. He on the other hand should know better ... Pursing her lips together, Mirielle glanced to either side, noting that nobody seemed to care enough to help the girl out.

"Might as well be me," she murmured, straightening her skirts as if preparing for battle. Proper manners were something she could handle without getting in trouble with the local officials or Vaness. Hopefully. If she could diffuse the acolyte's anger, everything should work out and Mirielle wouldn't have to make a hasty exit.

"Sir," Mirielle called out, stepping to edge of the sand garden but taking care not to place even a single toe in it. "Sir!" she said again; this time more loudly, but keeping her tone respectful. "I believe this young lady is unfortunately not from Eurydice. She sadly isn't aware of the sacred order of spirits and needs your counseling and wisdom to put things to right. I'm sure we all," here she swept a hand toward the crowd of on-lookers, "Could use some of your enlightened principles to guide us today."

Mirielle bestowed a bright, hopeful smile towards the acolyte, doing her best to appeal to his belief of his own superiority before turning to the off-lander girl and giving her a discreet, encouraging, please-please-please-play-along smile of her own.

Hippolytian System / [Eurydice] A Little Night Music

Mirielle glanced down into the empty teacup for a moment, examining the pattern of the tea leaves scattered along the bottom. She was fairly certain they meant something - Seraia would have known - but to her they looked a bit like a grumpy face with a hand wagging its finger at her all get-back-to-work-already-ish. 

I wonder if Thorne can manipulate tea leaves, Mirielle mused with a slight smile, knowing full well the boss of the Owl and the Oak was not exactly the magic "mumbo-jumbo" type. Unless, of course, he could somehow make some coin out of what he called sparkly fluff nonsense. Mirielle couldn't blame him, not really, not when magic held the same credentials as the Moonmas Fairy in Vega where technology was king. Or queen. Empress. Stop that now ... she chided herself.

With a quick mental shake, Mirielle hurried behind the counter to deposit the dirty dishes into the hot water station. "Last one!" she announced with delight to her fellow tea lady, Ozra, who was elbow deep in suds. The girl gave her a bubbly-gloved salute, getting some of the foam in her auburn corkscrew curls.   

"About time!" chirped Livette from her side of the cafe while she shuffled her broom around listlessly. "It's been too slow! We should just close up and go home." She sighed, throwing as much dramatic weigh behind the sound as possible.

Ozra and Mirielle exchanged glances, the former rolling her eyes at Livette, who was their resident actress-that-just-hadn't-been-discovered-yet. "Here it comes," Mirielle whispered with an excited grin, both girls buzzing with anticipation.

"This, young lady, is a business. We do not close early; we find a way to bring in customers," Thorne countered, pointedly arching a brow. He was almost the perfect picture of menace: shiny, angry bald head, lips drawn tight in a disappointed frown, even an annoyed muscle twitch in his right arm, like he had an itchy trigger finger ... but it didn't reach his eyes. Those were bright amber with amusement, knowing full well he had to play his part.

None of them could tell you when or how it started exactly, but now it had become a bit of a tradition or a ritual - though Thorne would deny it - that somehow Livette complaining about it being too slow always led to the same result:

"Mirielle could fiddle," Ozra responded with a sly smile, pointing at the lavender haired girl.

"I could fiddle," the girl in question agreed demurely, not quite able to hide her excitement.

"You could fiddle," Thorne decided, completing the ritual. "But play something warm and inviting - no customer roulette," he added, referring to the game where you had to guess the customer by the tune Mirielle fiddled up. "It is chilly and windy tonight. I want something that'll bring people in here for tea and a cozy fire."

"Yes, sir! Right away, sir!" She took great care collecting her violin from its case while Thorne activated the broadcasting system that connected to a pair of speakers outside. Taking her place in the center of the room, Mirielle eased into her fiddling.

She always started out softly, crooning, welcoming her friend back into her arms. There it would guide her back to a happier time - a party - with flowers and cake and her dearest friends surrounding her. And it would sing for her, trilling out those feelings for the world to hear, in a voice that could say the things she couldn't. That singularly happy moment spun out from the violin as Mirielle wove her memories into the notes, fingers flying across the strings, doing everything she could to keep her thoughts from reaching a certain point. They slipped past on occasion, but she knew she had mostly succeeded at Thorne's assignment from the lively clapping coming from her companions through the haze of her playing. Now she just needed to snag a customer or three and all would be well.

I would totally love some interaction between Kit and Phoebe, because I imagine whatever they get up to, it's going to be absolutely adorable.   I kinda love the idea of Phoebe rescuing Kit from an awkward social situation (which Kit probably gets into easily, given she suffers from foot-in-mouth).

I second Kit and Phoebe goodness! Phoebe would definitely rescue Kit from an awkward social situation - that is one of the few things Phoebe knows she can actually *help* with.

A silly/light story with them trying to clean up the Gloriana's gardens or going on a "mission" to get the next in a series of romance novels they're reading would be awesome too. :)

I would also really, really love it if somehow Phoebe was able to escape with Kit's birthday drawings. I could see her showing them to Kit, wanting to know more about the flowers, and maybe not realizing/remembering Kit was the one who drew them and going from there. <3

Playing off the crossdressing idea, it might be fun to see some of the characters having to go undercover, maybe in something that puts people out of their element.

Yes please! I think it would be lots of fun to get some of the senshi out of their element. Undercover on Psyche or possibly Orpheus would be lots of fun, I would think.

And I third or fourth crossdressing plots! :D
