  • Brenna: Hey, Arcadians! I started a community on for us. Think of it as a chatroom with a jukebox we can all take turns using. Whip up an account and let me know your account name (it's a private room).

  • Edgewise: ;_; Thank you, very much.

  • Alyss: I hope not!

  • Edgewise: ...Please tell me this rpg hasn't been abandoned for the second time in six years. Please.

  • 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
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • 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
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3

    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

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.
