Dhaos sans a few centuries, and a bunch of strangersWhat:
the young prince has a slight scare, and explores his surroundingsWhen:
Monday morning to early afternoonStyle:
brackets, as alwaysStatus:
[Waking up in a new place can be a scary experience for a child, especially when said child has no memory of how they got there in the first place. This is such the case for Dhaos, now age seven and completely oblivious to any memory of his adult life. The fear that perhaps he had been stolen away by someone - a very real, if unlikely danger to a young prince such as himself - gives way to curiosity. Wouldn't there be someone watching him if he had really been kidnapped? The window was even open a little, and the door didn't have a lock. Being mindful of the large turtleneck he's almost swimming in - goodness, whoever normally wears this thing must be even taller than Father - he opens the door and wanders out into the hall to find out what's going on.
A bit later in the day, he can be found playing out in front of the Vesperia house. He's not too sure about the area yet, and he's had it quite strictly drilled into his head from early on not to wander off alone.]
((ooc: Might make an account for this later on. Will give a heads up if I do.))
[For once, I will have to request you look inside first.]

Who: Sufferer and anyone
Where: around the Plaza
When: New Year's Eve, around 7 PM
It's New Year's Eve, a holiday somewhat foreign to the trolls, but Sufferer knows enough to recognize it as a solemn, contemplative occasion. At least, that's how he's interpretting it. Or maybe it's just his new outlook on life.
Either way, the evening finds him in the Plaza, moving around it slowly, dreamily, carrying multi-colored paper bags and tea light candles. He sets each bag down carefully, fills it with a little sand or a few stones, and sets a lit candle in it. Those who were here last holiday season might remember him doing something similiar, and the Plaza is slowly filling up with gently flickering light.
It just seems like a good time of year for it.
Who: Burgh and anyone else!
Where: In the forest area
Style: I'll match to any
Burgh was curious to know what the forest within Vatheon had. What secrets or even bugs did it hold? He was far from his precious Pinwheel Forest as he looked around at the swaying canopies of trees. Underwater bugs? Well, you could get many strange creatures living at the bottom of oceans. He was no sea life expert so, bugs on trees were more his specialty.
"Hm." He felt the bark of one tree and smiled. It felt like being back at home. Did many others wander here? He was curious as he paced slowly, admiring the scenery and taking it all in.
Is it that time of the month already?
...No, today is not the start of shark week.
The Station Master's taken precautions to make this month's mingle party nice and laid back, after that rather magnetic week. Today, locals are all over the Plaza starting to put up the decorations for this strange holiday known as "Christmas", and they're more than happy to cheerfully rope any foreigner who doesn't look too busy into helping them.
The food tables are back, albeit with more drink than food. Hot chocolate,
gluhwein mulled wine, a huge bowl of fruit punch, you name it, it's there. Foodwise, there's snowflake shaped crackers with cheese and meats, shrimp cocktails, cups filled with green or red jelly, and plenty of cookies to go around.
Near the food tables are the two usual booths, one belonging to the Welcoming Committee, armed with all the information a newbie would want to know, and the other belonging to the Host Club, manned by all the male eyecandy you could ever need. Have they done something special for their booths this festive season? Better sashay their way and find out!
Walking around all the tables and booths is what looks to be a giant lobster(???) in a Santa suit handing out candy to anyone and everyone nearby. It seems the locals don't understand that it's "Santa Claus", not "Sandy Claws."
Finally, it looks like there's been a new addition to the plaza. Was that ice skating rink over there last night?? It certainly fits the theme, and the locals don't seem to be surprised. They'll even help you lace up those skates and take them for a spin. Bundle up and try not to fall too much!

Who: Kohaku and anyone in Vatheon who wants to come and join the potluck!
When: NOW. Thanksgiving Day. 11/22/2012.
Where: The Plaza
Style: Starting in Brackets, go wild and do whatever!
[ As she had planned, Kohaku had set up a line of tables somewhere in the plaza, with some of the food she'd already prepared for the event on the table and chairs on each side of it. Over in another area, there were a couple of games, so that people who wanted to could have some fun with that; the games included 'pin the tail on the turkey,' and she'd brought some jump ropes out.
It was a pretty last-minute, not too well planned event, but it turned out pretty great, right? All that mattered was that people enjoyed it. ]
( ooc: It's a potluck! Have your characters bring food, add to the games, and do anything else that they wanna do! Go crazy! As long as it's within the rules of the game, I'm probably going to be pretty chill with it. B) I know there was some talk of spiking the drinks ... )
Who: Zelda (as Sheik), Link
Where: Ordo 2 & 3
When: October 29th, when the curse really kicks in
[It was pure instinct that caused Zelda to retreat inside Sheik the moment the visions started. He completely ignored them for the most part. It didn't make sense for Zelos, Duke, and Guy to be in Hyrule, and certainly not in those forms. The image of Link like that...
Rather violently, Sheik pushed the door to Link's room open.]
Who: Lloyd Irving and Vatheon
Where: Video/Yutopil Apartments
[Today's the day, Lloyd's decided. He turns his SFC on.]
I guess things got a little crazy for a while there. I even missed my own birthday last month. It looks like everything's back to normal now, though.
[Or close enough.]
It's not too late to throw a birthday party, is it? I mean, you only turn eighteen once. I'm going to have it at my place this evening, if anyone wants to come.
[Yes, his place. He'll be moving back out of the Ordo house where he'd been staying with his friends. He's feeling ready now, and there's no need to make a mess of their house when he's got a place of his own.]
I'm at the Yutopil Apartments, in room six.
[With that he turns his starfish off. He's got a party to get ready for. Hmm. After a moment, he turns it back on and dials for Link's and Angelo's SFCs.]
[Private to Link and Angelo.]
Hey, Link, did you still want to help? And Angelo? You don't have to, if you don't want to. Just thought I'd ask.
[One way or another, though, come this evening, the apartment will be decorated and there will be food and drinks. Nonalcoholic drinks, Angelo.]
[ooc: Feel free to respond with either SFC or action!]
Who: Dhaos and you!
Where: the park
When: Wednesday afternoon to evening
Style: starting with [ ], can switch to prose
[If anyone were to wander the park today, they might glimpse a rather unusual sight.
Many worlds tell tale of the creature known as the unicorn. They tell of its majesty and purity; a being that is the symbol of innocence. It seems that the cures has deigned to transform a certain individual into one...from the waist down. Yessir, Dhaos' torso seems to be growing out of the neck of a white horse. The only tip-offs to his status as a unicorn are the rather lion-like tail, cloven hooves, and the fairly small (but quite pointy, as the shirt he had ruined in a failed attempt to put some sort of clothing on would attest) horn sprouting from his forehead.
He appears to be playing with some assorted wildlife at the moment. Bother him?]
Normally this particularly part of the plaza lays a little quiet and secluded but today there is a difference. The otherwise quiet spot is bustling with activity today, and shall be every first of every month from now on. It sure was a bit of trouble preparing all of this, but no effort was spared. It is for a good cause, after all!
The set up, though fairly simple, has clearly been aimed at making things comfortable for those attending. Broad tables filled with food and drink (and a few locals attending to them to make sure they won't run dry) stand amongst small tables, perfect for a few people to gather around and enjoy the delicacies. Some chairs and benches have been set up too, for those that'd rather sit while talking, but there is still plenty of space for walking around too. Beyond that, there stand at least two booths, one manned by the Welcoming Commitee, armed with replacement flyers, maps, hotel directions and anything a person new to Vatheon might need. They certainly look ready to answer any question that someone might have and then some. The other booth seems just as welcoming, though perhaps a little less on the informative side. This one is manned by Vatheon's very own Host Club. Are they recruiting? Trying to find new customers? Or just here to do their part in welcoming new people to Vatheon? Better check it out and be certain.
Today, the party seems to be dressed up with a rather obvious autumn flair. The tables, chair, benches and table-cloths are dominated by warm, fall colours, and all the food that stands on the tables has a very definite fall flavouring; apple and pumpkin pies stand side by side, with caramel apples near by and what looks to be a mass of cookies. But there are soups too, warm and hearty for those that want them. And lets not forget the drinks. The locals are tireless in refilling the cups so there is never anyone lacking some warm tea or warm chocolate, cider, or just plain old apple juice. Ask and you shall most definitely receive!
