  • 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.

  • 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 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! :)

The Vegan Calendar!
« on: December 13, 2013, 06:23:58 PM »
This is meant to be a calendar of both planetary and system-wide celebrations, days of remembrance and other observances. Use this spreadsheet to list the dates and, if there are any customs or other information, post about it in the thread here!

Brainstorming here, but I'm wondering if Sin would have warped two holidays to her liking.  What if system-wide, St. Serenity Day (June 30th) became...something else, maybe the beginning of a two-week long jubilee for Sin (whose birthday is July 10th) and the various Iron Angels?  Like Topaz could decide that July 2nd is his day on the jubilee, and the planet Psyche better throw him a parade, OR ELSE.

Also wondering if Phoebe's birthday would (ironically) be celebrated as 'Liberation Day', because that was the day Sin freed Vega from the tyranny of Sol colonialism.  Thoughts?

That sounds fantastic, and that would explain why St. Serenity's Day is tolerated.

"A Saint's day? How quaint, but we all know why they're really carrying that icon up and down Main Street! See, they draped in the Imperial flag!"

Something tells me that more recent icons of St. Serenity have Sin's hairdo instead of the buns.

And, Liberation Day sounds like it may also be "Galactic Kick-a-Peasant Day" for Loyalists and "Galactic Bar Brawl Day" for the Revolution (a la Firefly). Phia will not hesitate to disguise herself and wear the pink, white and turquoise rosette of the Arcadian Party (which lasted all of ten minutes, until Sin had them all drowned in champagne or something).

For Penthesilea, I see a series of festivals they might share with the Orphean underground. From October 30th to November 2nd, there's a four day major feast to the dead.

October 30th is Hell Night or Rumpus Night. Starting at Sundown, children have school off for the duration of the feast weekend and bands of roving troublemakers from Neighborhood Krewes cause mischief and set off various loud noises to frighten off angry, restless ghosts. The Imperial Police are supposedly on high alert, but it's generally accepted that, as long as you don't do anything lethal or expensive, they'll let it go.

October 31st is the Feast of Phantoms or Samhain. Children of Penthesilea still trick or treat on these nights and families will make up altars to the ancestors and loved ones long lost. Masquerades and street festivals occur on this evening, and Psychics will often accept gifts of old clothes or food to ensure good luck for the givers.

November 1st is All Saints Night. This is when families descend on cemeteries and memorials to clean them and picnic to leave offerings. The local houses of worship reconsecrate things on this day, and many people will wear marigolds or fake monarch butterflies as a symbol that they have donated time or money to various charities for tending graves and supporting houses of worship.

November 2nd, the end of the Feast, is All Souls Night. This final evening begins as the quietest. Families will lay out a place for the dead at the supper table, doling out portions of everything, and supper is eaten by the light of a single candle or lamp. As soon as all are finished eating, the light is put out and all must remain silent as the souls of the departed are said to come partake of a meal with their loved ones. The dish is taken out to a crossroad and the food is left there. Even if animals or desperate beggars eat the offering, it's seen as the will of the dead and thus, they've eaten it. Some groups will say one last farewell with songs and poetry slams, but the night is seen as a cool down from the past three days of excitement.
