Marta F

[Around midday.]

May I ask something of you?

Jan. 6th, 2019


Marta F, Pippin P

[Marta F]
[After receiving her card.]

I did. I wanted something good for you.

[Pippin P]

I hope you had a very happy holiday. How are you finding Repose?

Dec. 31st, 2018


Des S, Marta F

[Marta F]

Do you like French food? I'm thinking more along the lines of pastries, rather than snails.

[Witch Sib Lock]

Spill. Was your Santa good to you?


I feel like some wires got crossed and I somehow wound up on the Nice list.

Dec. 26th, 2018


Delivery: Marta Flores

[It's another difficult wish to prove, but as per Marta's wish, Seven and Sawyer will both find that they feel good a lot more often, that they are generally found in good health. An envelope also arrives at Marta's door, just a little one, containing a gym membership card and an itinerary for classes, a couple of interest highlighted. A note on the back of the card reads simply Be good to yourself x]


Secret Santa: Seven M (Marta F)

[Delivered to Marta F is a letter. The letter reads 'Someone used their Christmas wish for you to have a pleasant, easier road toward recovery. But they and I believe in choices. Should you wish to accept the wish, you will need to say so aloud for it to take effect. May you choose wisely.' Delivered to Seven Morgan is an outrageously expensive chair. A plain white card sits on the seat, and reads: 'The choice is hers'.]

Secret Santa: Aedan Byrne, Marta Flores, Jesse Thomas, Pippin Pinkerton

[The gift takes the shape of cards. The envelopes are white with golden lining inside, and there's one card in each, embossed, rectangular, and printed in gold. That the cards are magical is without question, and when each envelope is opened and warm, bright gold light shines from under the flap. Even handling the cards is warming and soothing, and that's an effect that lasts long beyond Christmas. Each card has the same words printed on the front:]

Good for one happy day of your choosing. Hold the card, and wish, and the next 24 hours will be happy and perfect. From: Aedan Byrne

[Envelopes go out to three Reposians: Marta Flores, Jesse Thomas, and Pippin Pinkerton. An additional card goes to Aedan Byrne, but this one is signed from "S.S.," and it functions the same way as the others.]

Marta F

I saw it! I love it!


[News: Live and Breathe]

[Sometime in the week before Christmas, the front windows of Live and Breathe are painted. It's simple, done only in white paint on the glass. In the lower corner is tucked a small piece of white paper, no larger than a standard business card, that reads in very careful handwriting:

Many thanks to DW for the window painting.

With it being a winter scene, the trees will stay up well into the next month(s).]

Marta F

Do you think those little lights that flicker like candles are a good alternative? I kind of like the flickering effect. I know some people think real is better, as with everything, but I think they're okay.

I'm bad at small talk.

Deliveries: Atticus M, Destiny S, Sunshine, Connie G

[A day after the altar appears on the edge of Atticus' property where it joins the forest, baskets appear on each of their respective doorsteps.

Contents: warm goat cheese and apricot babka wrapped in tinfoil, and a sachet with a different dried herbs for each of them. Mugwort for Connie, patchouli for Marta, pennyroyal for Des, and a peculiar blend of yarrow and chamomile for Atticus.]



[Posted anonymously to the forums.]

I'm looking for an artist that might be willing to do some painting for the holidays for a local business. Please message here.

[Edited after a few replies:]
More details:
Painting a front business window.
Holiday/winter related.
Hoping to find someone that’s done it before.
Fair pay to be discussed with artist(s).

[Marta F]

Do you want to decorate the store for Christmas? I'm fine if you do, but I only have one request.


'Tis the season! Please remember that several lovely plants of the season: mistletoe, holly and poinsettias, that while gorgeous and sometimes steeped in history, are not good for our four footed friends and family members. Be kind to animals, <3.

And it went without saying that it was hardly his first reunion. Sometimes he entertained the thought that his life had evolved into a series of patterns, at least to do with the people he cared about. )

public, marta f

I'm reaching out to somebody I crossed paths with on Halloween. I just wanted to say that I'm sorry I attacked you in the orchard like I did. Feel free to tell me to go to hell.

[Marta F]

Marta, Public

[Marta] Are you alright?

[Public, thoroughly disgruntled]

As if it's not enough to live one version of a life in this world and the bullshit that entails. This better not be some vindictive genie bullshit. If one of you made a misguided wish, I'm awarding you the title of supreme asshole.


newt & pat, claire j, daniel w, billy k, marta f, connie g, hannah s, holly w

[Newt & Pat]
I don't think I was in the right mind to tell you both so before, but thank you.

Do you have any scientific findings to report, Scully? I'd appreciate some right about now.

In gloom, Mulder

[Daniel W]
I'm out. I've been out a lot, but I'll be back around tonight. Are you alright? I'm picking up a few things, a couple boxes of wine and some nachos. Can I bring you anything? An extra box of wine with your name on it?

Obligatory big sister check-in asking who you fucked this time. I'm envisioning a hunky Santa. Or Kurt Russell in a hunky Santa costume. Cheer me up with the dirty details please. But mostly tell me you're okay.

[Marta F]
I haven't abandoned the house entirely, I promise. We can have a girly sleepover once I stop being a magical mass murderer. Also, are you good?

[Connie G]
Hi. I never get to see you anymore. I feel like I need to start asking now to make plans three weeks from now so, do you have any plans for Thanksgiving?

[Hannah S]
Are you still staying in the village? I came through earlier this week but didn't get a chance to see you if you were.

ETA: [Holly W, thoughtfully added.]
It's time for me to return the favor and see if you need anything?

capital: travis & marta

Who: Travis & Marta
What: A sobriety meeting
Where: Capital
When: Currentish
Warnings: Mention of drugs to start, I'm sure.

[He'd been to enough of these things by now to know how they went. Everyone always sat in a circle while waiting for their turn to speak, some clutched crosses and some just clutched cups of stale coffee that came out of the chipped pot that sat across the room smudged up in about a hundred different sad sets of fingerprints. Travis was one of the ones hanging onto a waxen little paper cup of bad coffee. It was black, and he sipped at its bitter heat like he'd discovered a new brand of punishment. The taste really wasn't good, it was in definite need of sugar. Every now and then, it made the bridge of his nose wrinkle up, unable to disguise the bad taste it left behind on his tongue.

Eventually it was his turn to speak. Some people said five words and some people said five thousand, but Travis definitely aimed for the lower side of the spectrum. He thumbed the chewed up lip of his coffee cup and sat up a few degrees straighter. All of those years in a hospital bed had made his legs skinny, and his bluejeans had a very loose fit. He had on a couple of tee shirts layered over one another, the topmost in a faded yellow color. It was impossible to tell if somebody was an addict or alcoholic just by looking at them, for sure, but he looked pretty clean cut when cast against some of the other people in the group. His dark hair was cropped short and his face was smooth. He didn't have any tattoos or track marks, but he did have some freckles.]

Um. My name's Travis. [Hi, Travis.] I've been sober for... wow, like six years, I guess. It wasn't really my idea, but maybe it never is. Anyway, the hospital suggested I come to these meetings, and it's not like I have anywhere else to be... like almost all my friends are dead, or might as well be. That's it, I guess. Thanks for listening. [He took another sip of his miserable coffee and waited for the talking circle to make its way around.]
