CQ: [act]rushes in ... or rushes as much as you can wearing 7 inch heels[/act] I'm late, I'm late for a very important date.
[act]teeters back to reopen door[/act] Oops sorry, forgot that you can't actually walk through walls. Ghosts are so not my thing.
[act]drops crystal in basket and signs in[/act] ClassicQuestion and Jik as Scully and Mulder .....Mystics Ball 2010
Jik: May I assist in anyway?

Bambi: *walks in with a scrowl on her face* I cant believe I got stuck with you as a date *scrowls at date*
Rushton: I am really that bad?
Bambi: *sighs* No, but they are *points at fan girls*
Rushton: Oh No! Not again *tries to hide behind Bambi*
Bambi: *sighs* *signs:* Bambi and Rushton as undisclosed people sign into the mystics ball *drops her topaz crystal as payment* Come on, I suppose we have to enter sometime or another
Arwen: [act]Walks through the wall, pulling her date behind her[/act]
Date: Why couldn't we just enter the normal way?
Arwen: ::) Because we're doing this the evil replicator way.
Date: Evil? I do evil :D
Arwen: I know. I can too.
Date: Yes :| How will I ever fix my hair after this? I mean Reddragon-
Date: Whatever. At least she only dyed it pink. But this?! Black?! It'll never come out. You've ruined my pale, sleek hair. And that's no the worst of it! You had to go further and curl it.
Arwen: Oh, suck it up Ariel. You should have worked out by now that not everyone loves you, not everything goes your way. [act]signs[/act] Arwen and Ariel as Replicator Sam and Fifth from Stargate SG-1 [act]looks at Ariel expectantly[/act]
Ariel: [act]innocent[/act] What?
Arwen: ":( The crystal!
Arwen: ":( Ariel! Put the crystal in this minute or-
Ariel: [act]sighs[/act] Fine, spoilsport. [act]drops in pearl white crystal[/act]
Arwen: Good. Let's go then.
[act]Zier and Dameon walk in arm in arm[/act]
Zier: Oh, they've cleared out the teknoguild caves, and there's a multi-coloured glowing desk with a large book on it. I guess that's where we have to sign in...
Random Guests: [act]give Zier odd glances, but then recognise Dameon and realise she's not talking to herself[/act]
s*c*p No weapons allowed!
Zier: It's okay, they're fake. [act]shows SCP[/act]
s*c*p [act]scans "weapons"[/act] You may pass.
Zier: Thank you!
Dames: These glass things feel strange.
Zier: No no, the glasses really suit you! I'm sure you'll get used to them, and at least no one will stare, not that you'd know, but you know... Sorry, I'll try not to ramble so much.
Dames: I don't mind.
Zier: Thanks, that's sweet of you! Let's go sign in. [act]Zier guides Dames to the table and releases his arm so she can write, reading aloud as she goes[/act] Zieria and Dameon, dressed as Trinity and Neo from The Matrix.
Dames: What IS the Matrix?
Zier: No one can really know what the Matrix is...
Dames: Okay... o_O
Zier: [act]doesn't notice his confusion, as she's fishing out the crystal, and dropping it in the basket[/act] Okay, let's go! :D [act]he carefully takes her arm, and they head off for the ballroom[/act]
Avialle: [act]enters, dragging a very grumpy looking Malik behind her[/act]
Malik: [act]shakes her off[/act] ":( Don't touch me, mutant! You'll sully me with your defect. [act]straightens clothes primly[/act]
Avialle: ::) How many times do I have to tell you that I'm not a mutant?
Malik: [act]sneers[/act] If you're not a mutant, then what is that thing on your head? [act]points at the eye painted on Avialle's forehead[/act]
Avialle: I told you, I'm in costume. It's just a decoration. :nod:
Malik: That sounds like something a mutant would say...
Avialle: ::) Ok then. You win, I'm a mutant.
Malik: I knew it! 8-|
Avialle: [act]sigh[/act] This is going to be a loooong ball... [act]signs[/act] Avialle and Malik as Leela and The Professor from Futurama.
Malik: [act]looks over her shoulder surreptitiously[/act] Professor? Is that why I'm wearing this bizarre robe? [act]indicates lab-coat[/act]
Avialle: Don't ask me why you're wearing that thing. I can't account for your questionable fashion sense... Now let's go. I want to get to the party and find a way to ditch you as soon as possible.
Malik: What was that? ":(
Avialle: Oops, did I say that out loud? ~:| Anyway, let's go! [act]grabs Malik and drags him to the Ballroom[/act]
Blaze: [act]slimes into entrance hall, towing a glowing blue date[/act]
Date: Does me costume have te glow?
Blaze: ::) It wouldn't work without the glowing.
[act]signs guestbook[/act] Blaze and Maryon as Cleaner (looks a bit like a slug) and a Blue Firebug
Maryon: where's ye crystal? [act]sniggers[/act]
Blaze: I gave it to you :-|
Maryon: I have forseen that ye munnot give the crystal. It will be needed later. |:|
Blaze: Just put it in the basket.
Maryon: Fine [act]drops shiny red crystal into basket[/act]
Blaze: lets go to the ballroom.
[act]slimes away, Maryon following[/act]
Sionainn: [act]bursts into the main cavern strinking a dramatic pose and brandishing her shiny moon crescent wand[/act] :D
Awkward Silence: [act]wanders by[/act]
Sionainn: ":( . . . Angina! Get out here! Where is my cheesy theme music!!
Angina: [act]from some dark place where he can't be seen[/act] Make your own cheesy theme music!
Sionainn: ":( NO! You're the musician, do something musiciany already -- beside you have to sign the guest book. [act]strikes pose again[/act]
Angina: I"m not coming out and I'm not singing any silly song.
Sionainn: ":( [act]drags Angina out from dark corner[/act] You always sing silly songs though. You're just being rude! What kind of date are you? ":(
Angina: What kind of date are you to be making me wear a dress!!
Sionainn: It's not a dress. It's a sailor senshi outfit -- you should wear it with pride. We battle against evil you know. :nod: Now, come along already. [act]waves hand impatiently and trots over to basket: pulls the Silver Moon Crystal off her wand and drops it in[/act] Silver Crystal, should get bonus points for that. Not even from this planet :D
Sionainn: :| Shhh you, now sign the guest book already.
Angina: :| Sionainn & Angina as Sailor Senshi: Moon & Mars
[act]the area in front of the book starts to pulse with a slight glow[/act]
[act]the glow dims[/act]
[act]the glow starts up again and this time two silhouettes may be seen for form before the glow disappears again[/act]
[act]Third time lucky and two guest (finally) materialise out of thin air[/act]
MK: I told you it was to the left.
MK's date: You? I'm the one who got us here!
MK: We could have gotten here a lot quicker if you stopped for a moment. Typical male - for all your youth; can't stop to ask for directions.
MK's date: Directions? Forgive me but I thought we were in hyperspace, pretty sure we can't pull over and just ask people how to get here.
MK: We could have asked the guy in the Tardis.
MK's date: What's a Tardis?
MK: That blue phone box thing we passed ...
MK's date: ...
MK: ... It's bigger on the inside?
MK's Date: You know what, actually I'm still struggling with the idea that I've just left my house, with you... actually not quite sure who you are to be honest. And we've teleported (nevermind I didn't think that was possible) through hyperspace (whatever that is) into [act]looks around[/act] a cave.
Wow, remind me why I decided to come along with you again? I was planning on meeting up with Nat, Nissa & the others later today.
MK: :| You decided to come because you were seeking adventure! You wanted to see the world! So here we are... a crazy world yes but a world none-the-less
MK's date: [act]gives her a sceptical look and notices what she's wearing[/act] Wow - what are you wearing? [act]notices what he's wearing[/act] Ugh?! What am I wearing?!
MK: [act]preens[/act] Ee you like it? While we were travelling here I managed to put us both in our costumes :D :D ... ).(
... [act]points pointedly to 'bangles on arm'[/act] Through this special device that I'm wearing. It changed us as we were travelling... and we didn't even notice. Pretty cool aye? Don't you love Sci-Fi? Finally - a costume that is fashionable & functional!
MK's Date: Costume??! You call this a costume?! I look like something out of the Jetsons!
MK: Well, the theme is Sci-fi :D so I thought I'd go for classic sci-fiy look. Although [act]looks over date[/act] It's seems we may have been distorted slightly coming through hyperspace.
MK's Date: :O My arms! They are so flimsy! DX It's like I'm a stick man! A stick many with - [act]notices globe that he is holding[/act] Ooo shiny purple glowy thing :D Nice - what's it do?
MK: [act]shrugs[/act] I dunno - all part of the fun really.
MK's Date: ... Cool. You know what, I am glad I decided to come along.
MK: Excellent :D Right, well I suppose I'd better introduce ourselves:
MornirKirara of the Ashlings and Seth Paul (from Isobelle Carmody's 'The Gathering') dressed in Sci-Fi-ish clothes
Seth: [act]is still analysing globe[/act] I like that it's purple.
MK: Yes, purple is a nice colour. You are a strange one aren't you?
Seth: [act]looks at MK[/act] I'm a strange one? Here you are, come out of no-where, whisk me away to somewhere, dress me up in some lyrca and you think I'm the strange one?
MK: I didn't say that I wasn't strange - just that you are.
Seth: I am not.
MK: Dear, you were part of a group of kids who stopped evil seeping into your neighbourhood. I think that's not normal - and hence strange.
Seth: I'm not even going to ask how you know about that.
MK: ;D In any case, we've hung out here long enough. [act]squee[/act] Mystic's ball - I have a cutie for a date for once and no spork wielding maniacs in sight! I have a great feeling about this year's Mystic's Ball. [act]eyes Seth's purple glowy ball thing[/act] It is rather lovely isn't it :D
Seth: I'm not sure what you're talking about. But I do like my purple glowing atom ball thing as well. [act]offers arm[/act] Shall we proceed?
MK: :D We shall!
s*c*p": Stop. To proceed you must produce Crystal payment.
MK: Oh oh - that's right; Seth pay the nice robot penguin will you?
Seth: [act]is staring goggle eyed at the mechanical talking penguin before realises MK is talking to him[/act] Oh sorry?
[act]continues in PM - which does end with Seth placing a Crystal in the basket & the two of them proceeding to the lounge area[/act]
[act]Edward Cullen walks into the teknoguild caves, slighly bemused at his change of location[/act]
Edward: [act]to himself[/act] Quite strange, I was sure I had just been chasing a mountain lion into a cave, yet, I've managed to end my weekend jaunt in a strange, tainted underground lair.
[act]takes in a breath[/act]
Humans...and other creatures, I have yet to meet. This should be interesting.
[act]Walks further towards the entrance[/act]
s*c*p: Halt! Sign name, guest signs name, and provide crystal form payment at once!
Edward: [act]Talking to s*c*p as he signs with an immaculate flourish[/act] I am dreadfully sorry, but as you can see I have come without a guest, and was not prepared for this ...sudden change of environments. I am however extremely curious as to what is up ahead. A good day to you, er, robot penguin.
s*c*p: Halt! All guests MUST conform or will be ...
[act]noticing that he may have just made an unknown enemy, Edward uses his extreme speed to run past the s*c*p and into the Lounge [/act]
MD: [act]Strolls in with COnfusion Sisters[/act]
[act]Echoes around the entrance hall[/act]
[act]Smuppet and Danny (from The Gathering) wander into the eerie glowing of the cavern[/act]
Smuppet: You know what, that's a mighty eerie glow they've got going here. I've never seen such a purely eerie light, sometimes people mix in a bit of spooky glow or creepy glow and it just isn't the same...
Danny: [act]muffled from inside costume[/act] Sure is, I wonder who was in charge of decor, they really deserve a pat on the back. And if I may, could I intercede for just a moment with something I'm sure is far too trivial for you. [act]is running out of breath[/act] I think I may be suffocating inside this thing.
Smuppet: Hm why don't you take the helmet off?
Danny: There's a helmet? How was I to know. One second everything is normal then suddenly I'm here, with you, encased in some sort of plastic cocoon. [act]rips helmet off[/act]
Smuppet: Ah well that's the thing with the Mystics Ball, the logistics of moving so many characters to the one place all at once demands some sort of sudden magical transportation.
Danny: Righht, you are clearly not sane. If this is a ball why am I dressed as a Stormtrooper?
Smuppet: 8-| You know what a Stormtrooper is?
Danny: Of course I do, I hang out in the roof of a library for goodness sake.
Smuppet: Ahh yes, sorry I'm so used to all the Obernewtyn folk being in the dark with all these sorts of things.
Danny: Hm, you don't make a lot of sense do you. And I don't remember Stormtroopers having real storms floating around their heads. How is this even possible?
Smuppet: It's sci-fi, anything is possible. ;D
Danny: This is madness. Even so, did you have to make the costume so [act]is zapped by a mini lightning bolt[/act] interactive?
Smuppet: Just a bit of creative flair.
Danny: That's what you're calling it... anyway, why aren't you in costume?
Smuppet: [act]mutters[/act] So many questions. I am. I'm a Cylon. Of the humanoid variety.
Danny: How convenient. :|
Smuppet: Don't give me that look. My eyes flash red occaisionally, it took a lot of effort.
Danny: I'm sure.
[act]The pair sign the guestbook: Smuppet and Danny as a Cylon and a Stormtrooper. Place payment in basket and continue into the lounge. [/act]
M and Dardelan: f[act]ly in to thread[/act]
All: i wonder when M and D are gonna get here.
D (dardelan): WHERE HEEEERE!
All: [act]look around[/act]
M: oh right, i didn't have enough time to make us into cool people, so i turned us invisible :D
D: well thats not good. now they cant see us.
M: i can see us :nod:
D: o_O X:-/
M: [act]signs names in a cool invisible-like fashion[/act]
All: oh here they are [act]can see writings of which Marley just wrote[/act]
D: why oh why is she my date? ???
M: [act]grabs D and flys away[/act]
All: i wish i could have seen that, but she was invisible.
M: [act]laughs[/act] 8)
Sorry guys I'm a bit late.
*signs in* |:(
I can't believe I've already missed the first couple of days.
moondream: Takes Isobellecarmodyrocks' hands.
ICR: hey MD!
MD: Am I?
Aoife: [act](hurriedly) clomp-CLOMP-clomp-CLOMP[/act] Oh my goodness, we're so late!
Rolf:[act](slowly)clomp, drag, clomp, drag, clomp[/act] This ridiculous costume is kind of a drag on my wooden leg
Aoife: [act]stuffs fist in mouth to keep from laughing[/act] Why don't we just sign the guest book?
Rolf: Madame, do you care to explain to our kindly hosts why we are so late?
Aoife: |:( I had wrist surgery and I was trying to avoid typing as much as possible...
Aoife: Huh? Oh, um, [act]mumbles[/act]shmaproihakljd
MoonFire(Leeloo): *scampers into the cave singing* MY first mystics ball...My first mystics BAAALLLL!!!! *aims for a very high note...ends up screeching*
Kerd: *is walking behind MF and covers his ears* So would you mind telling me whats going on...errmmm...?
MoonFire: My name is MoonFire and you are my date to the Mystics' Ball!
Kerd: umm...What is the mystics' ball?
MoonFire: A Ball held by the mystics. :)
Kerd: Ohh. Right. *thinks: i still have no idea.*
MoonFire: *signs in* MOONFIRE AND KERD AS LEELOO AND KORBEN FROM THE FIFTH ELEMENT
Kerd: What in the universe is the fifth element?
MoonFire: It's a movie. It's about a girl who was created and well....I don't exactly remember...but it's scifi!!! :nod:
Kerd: Ohh.....and why are you wearing only wraps?
MoonFire: Like I said...the girl was created and idk she was only wearing wraps! Just go with it.
Kerd: Whatever you say!
MoonFire: My, you are a cooporative guest! I like it!
Kerd: Thank you.
MoonFire: *drops a shimering and oval shaped amethyst into the basket* Let's goo!!! *runs into the ballroom dragging Kerd behind her*
Bibliophile: [act]Races in, dragging date [/act]Sorry I’m late. I had to choose costumes and characters, make our outfits, yell at the computer, collect crystal, peek into the ballroom, hit the computer, make my sig and avvie (thankyou Arwen), stop smashing the computer...and go all the way to Sador to collect Hannay.
Hannay: You took so long to arrive I thought you’d abandoned me and I wouldn’t get to come to the ball. On the other hand, at least I would be wearing this stupid costume. It's a unicorn, for Lud’s sake!
Bibli: No it’s not; we’re Linyaari, and therefore only half unicorn. Or is that half Unykorn? Anyway, I’m Acorna aka. Kornya, and you are my bondmate (to be?), Aari. Did you bring the sunstone I told you to?
Hannay: [act]not listening and muttering under breath[/act][sub]It’s still a unicorn horn stuck to my forehead. Should have coerced her to change characters. It’s worse than the magi costumes! [/sub]What? What sunstone?
Bibli: The sunstone you were supposed to bring as our payment! Fine. Looks like I’ll just have to pay with my special Makohamian Cats-eye Beryl instead.
Bibli: Don’t worry, I doubt you’ve read Anne McCaffrey. Come on, let’s join the fun before we miss any more than we have already. [act]rushes off the ballroom dragging Hannay who is still muttering under his breath about horns[/act]
Mono: Oops I entered the ballroom before signing in here *facepalms*
Logan: This costume is giving me a wedgie!!! Can't you see that lycra is NOT attractive on me?
Mono: OH bullocks, you're just jealous that I get to have a lightsaber *grins wickedly*
Logan: You know what is really odd? Helena is just an older version of you, and Lioness is your daughter
Mono: You know what is odd? You have a wedgie XD
Kaede: [act]sidles into the cave with Anyi in tow[/act] |:| [act]whispers[/act] Maybe no one'll notice if we leave the crystal really quietly...
Anyi: WOW! Just look at this place!
Anyi's Voice: [act]echoes around the cavern[/act]
Kaede: ":( Anyiiii!
Kaede: [act]sighs and signs the guest book: Kaede and Anyi as Sha're and Daniel Jackson[/act] Got the crystal?
Anyi: [act]holds up a glowing yellow crystal[/act]
Kaede: Not in my eyes!

Random Teddybear Looking Thing#2: Nooooo! I need to STUDDDYYYY!!!!
Random Teddybear Looking Thing#1: First you force me into this ridiculouse outfit and then you spend a week locked in your room surounded by books so that I don't even get to go to the party and now you want to spend another week locked in your room? ":(
Random Teddybear Looking Thing#2: I see your point ~:|
