I've never seen a place so fond of parties before. [ Lenalee is thumbing curiously through the costumes hung through the clothing store, and her topic is vaguely serious but her face still light ]

It does seem to like its little. "Surprises", doesn't it? [ she rolls a plastic crown between her fingers ] I suppose, considering its strange idea of criminals, it might as well be a strange prison.

[Ammy's wandering the park, lost in thought. After hearing that someone would use an innocent creature against another...

It isn't right.

She doesn't like thinking like this, so any distraction would really be welcome. Eevee is padding along after her, worried about mama. Why is she so sad...? :<]

Attention everyone!

I'm sorry to interrupt your dinners if you're eating dinner now. Or whatever you do afterward if it is now after. If you haven't eaten yet you should try the ramen place. It's really good.

Oh, um, but...I have something very important to tell you all!

Diva is dangerous, and you should stay away from her! She might turn you into a vampire! ...Or lick you.

Okay, I think that's all. Oh! Except she's got long dark hair and blue eyes and pale skin and she's kind of pretty.

[As promised, he hasn't gone near her!]

[Aaand Kaien appears on your screen with an almost euphoric expression on his face.]

New Years! That means Spring is just around the corner! Aren't you excited, Marina? ♥

[Voice]

Hello? Lelouch-san? You're in charge of the academy, am I right...? I had been helping the previous leader...so I was wondering if there was anything I could do to help you as well? I was a headmaster of my own academy back at home. So I know a lot about it. [Babblebabblebabble. You can almost hear the smile on his face and flailing of his arms in his excitement.]

Hmmm!

[It is evening time, and for all intents and purposes the video appears to be accidental at first. The view's an open-ish area in the dome (the park? probably), and currently occupied by two women, standing and facing each other, though the video feed mostly only shows the younger girl. At the present moment, it is the older one who speaks however, exclaiming quite enthusiastically to the other, pointing to her and generally being loud and dramatic.]

My darling, I will show no mercy, as you have seen this evening, and I fully expect the same of you towards me. Otherwise, there is no point. [If the passionate glint of excitement can be seen in her eyes, it's pretty obvious to notice. The woman is loving this. She's made for combat.] You might encounter bruises and obstacles in this training, but I'm confident it will be overcome by perseverance, my dear. In fact! Any others, where they to be witnesses today, would only agree, I am most certain. [And anyone watching the video... Did you see that wink?]

Therefore!

Once more! Yuuki Kuran, come at me with all your might!

Night was falling, the smell of spices were in the air and Jennifer was busy putting the last finishing touches on all the hard work everyone had done to get the athletic complex decked out and festive.

Walking through the front door, you'll see a table where you can put all your presents on for now with a tree sitting behind it. Don't worry, the bots will make sure no one but Jennifer takes any gifts off the table! There's also a series of volunteers ready and willing to help you out of your coats if you need it, but otherwise, please don't hesitate to shed off a few layers.

It might be a little warm if you don't.

Inside the main entrance, Jennifer's taken care to section off the room into the main dancing area and a stage salvaged from the Valentine's Day auction off to the side for the performances later on. Surrounding the outer edges, are tables and settees salvaged from the Shelter so that those who wish to watch can do so in comfort. Do be careful though. Scented candles are lit on each table to provide a soft light to balance out the harshness of the lights over the dance floor.

And of course there's food. Punch and egg-nog and shrimp and cheese and a myriad of other finger foods. There are cookies decorated with frosting and lemon bars and cranberries and a giant bowl of sugared dates. Marzipan is scattered across the table and a small gingerbread house sits as a centerpiece, but the cake is the main attraction.

But the cake comes with a price. Anyone who wants a piece, must do what it says on the toothpick first. Have fun! And no cheating. Someone might be watching to make sure no one does.

Music is already playing and Jennifer's leaving things up to the host club to make sure people start dancing, because what's sadder then a ball with no dancing? Do make sure to enjoy yourselves. It's why we're all here!

((ooc: The first thread is for the cake game and will list various things you must do. The second is for performers to do their act so we can group reactions together in one spot. And last, mingle, threadjack, and have merry with whatever your characters want to do in the rest of the post!

As an ooc gift meme was suggested instead of actually threading out every gift exchange, we will be doing that instead, but we highly encourage you to still seek out your gift recipients and build CR in the post as you will.

Also, mistletoe can be found neatly tucked inside wreaths at the main entrance to the Athletic complex and also from the cloak room leading into the dance hall. Be nice! Ask permission first.))

[As soon as Kaien turns the video on, he smiles brightly at the dome. Voice? There is no need for voice. Things should be face to face anyway...picturesss...]

How would you all feel if we had a biiig party~? ♥ Like a tea party, except bigger! [Excited Kaien is insanely excited.] Maybe after Christmas though...Ah!

That reminds me...what do you all usually do on Christmas? [He's just curious...and really, really loves Christmas. A lot. ♥]

[OOC: Ahaha...I'll make an IC thread instead of an OOC one for this massively pointless tea-related plot.]

Snow, hmmm...?

[The video shows Juri, holding a hand out to the snow as it falls, standing in the middle of it without seeming all too bothered by it. Her expression is quiet, maybe a little confused, but she chuckles softly not long after.] How nostalgic.

[AND THEN, the angle switches, view of her face only now, smiling with a bit of a sparkle in her eye.]

More importantly, this is quite a trick, isn't it? Ohoho, very well. Attentive ears best be prepared, as I will only say this once: I am impressed. In fact (truly, I must say)--even I as a lady quite modestly difficult to shake--I've been stumped! I didn't expect to find myself out of the house quite just yet today, for one.

[Really, never mind that she doesn't remember having left, appearing outside of the home she and Yuuki had been sharing was an interesting touch. It made her wonder.]

... Now, then.

I think I might have a walk in this winter wonderland, actually. I'm very interested in having a look around today.

Haruhi's back. Why did Acumen bring her back? She doesn't belong here.

I guess maybe...

Tono's probably right. Why would anyone pick me over someone who's kind and caring? ... Not that I really care or anything.

Just forget I said anything.

    NEW PENPAL MATCHUPS
  • Ryoji & Kaworu

[Today certainly has something new for her to deliver. At first, she'd had a simple bit of joy about delivering magazines, not even giving the contents much attention beyond ensuring that the inmate isn't too young for the material.]

[But she may have accidentally dropped one of the magazines in the post office, and it opened to a certain page, and... well, it answered some questions about her human friends that she didn't even know she had. On top of THAT, the incident was technically a violation of the recipient's privacy. It's a double-whammy of fluster and shame and she could not put them in discrete envelopes fast enough.]

[At least, thanks to Ribbons' guidance, she's dressed very warmly while she shuffles around the dome. She's even got a nice colorful scarf to offset the darker tones of the outfit. Not that it does much to hide her blushing.]

Well! So many new people today! I must say that this is quite the opportunity to pose a question.

Do any of you have any specific wishes? How many of you are expecting a birthday soon? Or perhaps over the holiday season you'll be wanting something? I simply can't just sit here without granting some things for you. Do tell me. Come, now, don't be shy, tell me all that you want. Princess Nunnally, perhaps? Or Ms. Kurosu? [A light laugh.]

Mm...oh, yes. [And now she will add with a touch of sympathy,] Xion, darling, I'm afraid I was unable to find your friend. I hope you had better luck than I.

[An audio feed comes on, but it's silent for about a minute or so until the voice of a young boy finally speaks up. In a manner of speaking that is; it's very much on the quiet and timid side]

...After to listening to everything going on... I guess I can't really say or keep thinking that all of this and what that paper said isn't real, s-so...here goes... [Deep breath of preparation!]

U-um, I'm Emil-- E-Emil Castagnier-- and I'm, well... [His voice grows smaller and he falters and fades out, but only for a moment] I guess I'm introducing myself like everyone else is doing and just sort of wondering if maybe-- there's anyone else from Sylvarant or Tethe' Alla here too? I'm already pretty sure Marta isn't here, since I haven't heard her yet...

[But still hopeful! Please oh please let someone else be here don't let him be alone again. Being alone is hard once you've had friends]


And, uh, I'd wanted to thank a-- Ms. li Britannia, and a Mr. vi Britannia too? For the basket and the things in it. T-the cookies are really good.

[ ...well, isn't this just fascinating.

you might find Jade wandering very sedately down the street; he's easy to spot because, at least at the moment, he has an orb of light in the air above him. he needs the light, almost less for actually seeing than for the furious scribbling he's doing in a very small notebook.

I have snacks and tea if anyone wants to join me for another little party. [Smiles brightly into the camera.] I promise I won't pull out the photo albums again~ [In other words, an invitation for Yuuki to come too! To her own house! Woah!]

What with recent events, I know that some of you are probably a little stressed. So please come to the manor in sector four! Hopefully we can all try to cheer up together!

Eventually, though, he moves on toward his apartment. ]
