DT: Brydda, this place looks amazing :D
Brydda: [act]taking DT's arm[/act] later on we will have to dance :)
DT: indeed Black Dog...but first let us see some other people
*YellowEyes and Jak enter the Ballroom*
YE- *whispers*oh wow, Jak look it's Brydda! Do you think he'll mind if i go and introduce myself?
Jak- I have heard that he is a nice guy....
YE- *clears throat* Hello everyone! This is my first ball, so i'm pretty excited!
[act]Blackbird and Garth enter the Ballroom[/act]
BB: [act]waves to DT[/act] Hey DT, great costume!
DT: Thanks, you too!
Garth: [act]looks upset that no one has complimented his costume[/act]
BB: You look good too Garth, come on, lets dance.
Helena and Gwynedd: [act]walk into the room[/act]
Helena: you heard the nice lady- no drinking in the Ballroom!
Gwynedd: how do you expect me to have any fun if i can't drink in this room?! [act]grumpy frown[/act]
Helena: naw, stop acting like a spoiled child... you may be King somewhere, but you're not here!
Gwynedd: aw, come on. you can't say that you don't want to drink either ;)
Helena: i don't turn 18 until september, and i don't like drinking anyways :-|
Gwynedd: you don't like to drink?! 8-| [act]looks shocked and appaled[/act] i just HAD to get paired with the prude...
Helena: naaaaaws! i love you too! ;D oooooh! i can see DT and BB over yonder! [strike]come- let us talk by the Giant Pit of Death[/strike] lets go and say hello! :D :D [act]pulls Gwynedd towards them, waving[/act]
Wraithking and Elspeth: [act]walk in[/act] wow its so pretty
Wraithking; so do we introduce ourselves or do we just stand here looking at the scenery?
Elspeth: lets go introduce ourselves then
Wraithking and Elspeth: [act]bounce over to other people in room [/act]
Firefall: [act]edges past the s*c*p and surveys the Ballroom with satisfaction[/act] Ah, it came out so well! Those chandeliers of Mystic crystals add such a touch of elegance, don't you think?
Mystery Guest: ...Are there cobwebs on me? I think there are cobwebs on me. [act]flails[/act]
Firefall: All part of the ambience! [act]looks around[/act] Hm, shall we go introduce ourselves?
MG: [act]moodily picking cobwebs from shoulder[/act] What are you going to introduce me as? "Anonymous"?
Firefall: You know, these little bolts of sarcasm are really not conducive to a party atmosphere. I'm just saying. [act]drags guest over to the growing cluster of members and their dates[/act]
Smuffy: *skips in, her arms linked with Ceirwan's*
OOOOOoooh! Purdy...!!! *looks around in awe*
Ceirwan: Let's talk to some of the other couples! :P
Smuffy: Okaysh! :D *whispers to Ceirwan: They all have such good costumes!*
*turns to others*
Oooooh, Wraithking, you're so lucky to get Elspeth! :O All the rest of have such horrid odds at getting an awesome date. What did you come as, anyway?
[act]Ari and her date enter the Ballroom a little awkwardly. It seems Ari's date is having some kind of argument with the paper bag[/act]
Ari: Surely it cant be that difficult to wear a full body paper bag!?
AMD: Have you even worn one of these?
Ari: No, but- [act]grabbing a hand full of her dress and pointing to killer black stilettos[/act] -I get to spend the Ball in these!
AMD: Impressive, but still not enough to trump the body bag!
Ari: ::) You'll live.
Firefall: [act]to AMG, innocently[/act] If you really want to trump all, you could always wear the stilettos as well as the body bag.
Ari: Ooh, I like that. [act]pauses[/act] No, wait! I love these shoes!
AMG: And I don't. Thus, no. [act]eyes FMG[/act] Hey! Why does this one get a head-only bag?
Ari: [act]soothingly[/act] You're making a fashion statement.
Firefall: Yes, think how awkward it would be if two guests came wearing the same costume.
AMG: [act]rustling irritably in full-body bag[/act] Ah, yeah, because this isn't awkward at all.
Ceirwan: [act]looking around hopefully[/act] Has anybody seen Freya yet?
Smuffy: Sorry, Ceir, she's nowhere to be found at this stage.
Elspeth: What about Rushton? Is he anywhere to be found?
Firefall: I ask myself that every day.
Elspeth: [act]eying Firefall coolly[/act] Oh?
Firefall: Ahaha...figure of speech.
Silence: [act]ensues. Loudly[/act]
AMG: [act]smugly[/act] I think I see what you mean about awkward moments.
Helena: [act]walks up to DT and BB, who are talking amongst themselves[/act] howdy doody all! :D i see that you've all gotten awesome dates! ;D not that i'd know who you'd gotten before hand at all |:| :P
Bryda: what's with the green and the metal sticking out of you're neck, Gwynedd?
Gwynedd: [act]points at his date[/act] that's what. :|
Helena: aw, come on- you know you like it ;) ;D
DT: yeh, you look- [act]supresses giggles[/act] -very nice! ;D
Garth: what are you talking ab-?
BB: [act]claps hand over his mouth[/act] |:| yes, very nice!
Gwynedd: [act]doesn't notice the sarcasm and supresed laughter[/act] 8) see crazy lady? you should be glad that you have someone like me as a date :nod:
Helena: anybody got a pin?
Garth: yeh.. i should have one here somewhere... why? [act]rummages around in his pocket[/act]
Helena: coz i have the feeling that, before this is all over, i'm gonna need to pop his ever-expanding head [act]grim look[/act]
Gwynedd: :-/ ... so, when do we get to drink? ???
[act]EI and Gilbert enter the ballroom, Gilbert somewhat hesitantly[/act]
EI: What is your problem?
Gilbert: There are a few people that are bound to be here that I don't have very good histories with.
EI: Lovely. You know what, I probably would have preferred to bring Matthew again.
Gilbert: That makes two of us. [act]Grumbles as the gun in his hand slips slowly out of his grip[/act]
EI: Really? I didn't think you swung that way.
Gilbert: [act]Glares at EI[/act] Please tell me the bar is open.
EI: The least you could do before getting intoxicated is ask me to dance.
Gilbert: You really expect me to dance in this abomination?
Gilbert: [act]Spots Elspeth[/act] Ooooh. Can we go and greet a few people?
Jelli: [act]Flies into ballroom carrying Solen[/act]
Solen: Put me down. Put me down!
Jelli: Stop it or I'll drop you on someone sharp.
Solen: Fine. Can I go now? I've got an important meeting with the Shadowman.
Jelli: No! You're my date to the Mystics Ball and you're staying with me until I find someone else to hang out with!
Solen: [act]assuming voice of Piggie[/act] I need to talk with fathertree.
Jelli: No!! [act]Races up to Smuffy because she kinda know her and clings to Smuffy's arm[/act]
Solen: [act]attemps to wander away[/act]
Jelli: [act]drags him back[/act]
Jak- oh look Elspeth is here, perhaps we can say hi?
YE- alright lets go
*they wander over to Elspeth and Wraithlord and introduce themselves*
Gevan: [act]walks into the ballroom, looking behind him[/act] Okay, now you can dance in.
bm: [act]comes waltzing in with a big smile on her face[/act] :D
Gevan: There, happy now?
bm: [act]ignores him[/act] Ooh look how pretty it is! Our hosts have out done themselves.
Gevan: Yeh, yeh, can we go socialise now? I see some people I know. [act]points to Elspeth and Garth[/act]
bm: [act]huff[/act] You are such a guy! [act]leads the way over to everyone else[/act] Howdy people! Are you having as much fun with your date as I am with mine?
Smuffy: BM!!! Finally! [act]gives bm a hug[/act]
bm: [act]hugs everyone, watching out for their spinal collumns[/act]
Gevan: [act]is still indignant[/act] I'll have you know I am not one of those boring dates everyone hates... hey that rhymes!
bm: X:-/ Well you're certaintly not the life of the party.
Gevan and bm: [act]continue to fight it out[/act]
Helena: Ahh, they fight like an old married couple.
Gevan and bm: [act]turn as one[/act] We do not! ":(
Smuffy: It brings a tear to my eye. :"( ;P
Billy: It's beautiful, superb just magnificent!
Tonks: [act]is staring at her tv[/act] Yeah, just great ... [act]smashes into YE[/act] ":( Stupid mutt! What kind of a guide dog are you!!??
Billy: I'm not :|
Tonks: Go do something useful ... unheel, stran od pete, nicht zu Fuß! ... [act]stares at the unmoving Billy[/act] fetch! [act]tears off her antenna and throws it across the ballroom[/act]
TV: [act]goes blank[/act]
Tonks: X:-/ X:-/ [act]takes out a cable[/act] :D Billy ... my dearest and most faithful companion ... the light of my life ... my shining star, would you find it in your extremely kind and charming sole to grant a poor girl her life's wish. ;D
Billy: :| Let me think about it. [act]stalks off to apologize to YE and Jak[/act]
Tonks: [act]skips off hopefully after Thundie[/act] ;D ;D
Deb: Oh come on already! It's not like anyone is going to see you.
DMG: Mumble, mumble...
Deb: Well for one thing you're covered in brown paper.
Everyone: [act]Turns to stare[/act]
DMG: Mumble, grumble
Deb: It's only for a few days, and you know how much you like to joke around, only this time I'm doing the joking.
Deb: Oh stop mumbling and come and say hi to everyone.
Smuffy: Tonky, BM, Jelli, EVERYONE!!! (L) *glomps*
No WAY, Tonky, you got Billy!? Jealous!
Tonks: *is still following Billy Thunder*
BM: *shuffles away slightly from Gevan*
Smuffy: OML! I have the greatest idea! We should totally AUCTION OFF OUR DATES!!!! *is ecstatic*
All: o_O *cough* :-/
Smuffy: :D :D :D :D
Tonks: [act]spots Smuffy[/act] SMUFFFFFFFFF! [act]glomps[/act] (L)
Billy: [act]is suffocating from the sudden pull of his collar[/act]
Tonks: [act]gives Ceir's shoulder a friendly punch[/act] How's it going cous(in)? ;D
Ceir: [act]blank[/act] ???
Tonks: Ya know, dark blue eyes blondish hair, cute, kind, brave ...
Ceir: [act]edges away slightly[/act] o_O
Tonks: ;D You remind me of my cousin! You know, Bart. You mind if I call you Bart? Hi Bart!
Ceir: [act]clings onto Smuff[/act]
Tonks: [act]shrugs[/act] [act]turns to bm and Gevan[/act] Why hello there Gevan? How are you doing [strike]ya gorgeous hunk of meat[/strike] ?
Gevan: :-/ I ... have to go dance ... with my partner [act]slowly moves toward bm[/act]
Smuff: [act]tries to glomp Billy[/act] [act]crashes into his costume[/act] Ouch!
Tonks: [sub]You'll be thanking me yet![/sub]
Billy: [sub]And what's it to say i don't like gorgeous girls clinging to me?[/sub]
Tonks: [act]jumps onto Billy[/act] :-}
Billy: semi- x_X All right I get the point!
bm: Oh now you want to dance!
Gevan: Wait! I only-
bm: [act]pulls him over to the DJP[/act] I would like to request Don't Stop Moving by S-Club 7 please, cuz really, who can live without S-Club 7? :D
DJP: qua-ark :nod:
Gevan: [sub]Oh dear what have I gotten myself into[/sub]
bm: Good question! I'm still not sure yet myself ;D [act]drags him off to where Helena and Gwynedd are on the dancefloor[/act] Fancy seeing you guys here!
Gevan: X:-/ ~:|
[act]Princess Leia strides in, gun drawn, eager to get after the Imperial Stormtroopers she'd seen in the Entrance Hall[/act]
In the name of the Rebel Alliance, bring the Stormtroopers to me!
[act]Everyone goes quiet and turns to stare[/act]
Deb: [act]turning to Firefall[/act] Oh dear, I think we should have debriefed her first... should we go and calm her down?
DMG: At least get her to put that gun away!
[act]Deb and Firefall walk over to the ever-increasingly-confused Leia, mystery guests in tow[/act]
Firefall: Hello Princess Leia, and welcome to the Mystics Ball!
Leia: Umm hello.. I'm not sure what's going on here. I could have sworn I saw a stormtrooper earlier! I thought they all went down with the fall of the Death Star... A Ball you say?
Deb: Oh yes, this is a costume ball - you know, where everyone dresses up. The theme this year is sci-fi :nod:
Leia: But what's that got to do with stormtroopers? They're real! [act]Looks accusingly around[/act]Are you Rebel Alliance or are you with them?!
[act]Deb and Firefall look at each other[/act]
Firefall: Hmm this is going to be hard to explain..
Firefall: [act]carefully[/act] We are most definitely not on whichever side it is that you want to kill.
Leia: Do you think me a fool?
Firefall: Naw, but it was worth a shot, huh?
Deb: Could you not use the word shot when she's pointing a gun at us?
Ari: Say, Leia, why don't we introduce you to the guest who's dressed up as Chewbacca?
Leia: Not the stormtrooper?
Ari: [act]wincing[/act] Not the stormtrooper.
[act]Meanwhile, the three MGs have grouped together gloomily, united by the stigma of the Paper Bag Look. The three hostesses eye them, unimpressed[/act]
Deb: Don't be such a baby. Come meet people.
Ari: Look at it this way: we're hiding you away because you're so good-looking we don't want you to get mobbed before the party's even started! :D
Firefall: Do you really think that will work?
Deb: Remember who we're dealing with.
[act]Sure enough, DMG is preening around the paper bag[/act]
AMG: So the fact that my bag covers me fully is actually a compliment, suggesting I'm the most good-looking of us all?
FMG: [act]turning on Firefall[/act] Why didn't you give me a full-body paper bag?
Firefall: [act]looking like a deer caught in headlights, despite her guest's lack of eyeholes[/act] Umm...I apologise?
[act]This settled, the three drag their dates off to socialise[/act]
Smuffy: And then we can sell them for guild points! :D
Firefall: [act]looking interested[/act] Who are we selling?
FMG: Aren't you supposed to be supervising this room?
FMG: So, supervising means you can't encourage attempts at slavery in your area of supervision.
Firefall: ...Aww. :(
Smuffy: Um, it's not slavery...we're just thinking of auctioning off dates.
Deb: What! Do you know how long it took me to pull those dates out of a hat?
Tonks: [act]looks up from strangling Billy[/act] Ten seconds?
Billy: I'm guessing thirt - erk! [act]is strangled again[/act]
Ceir: Judging from my own experience with organising events, I'd guess about three minutes and forty-seven seconds.
Deb: ...Look, no date swapping!
Smuffy: Aww. :(
Firefall: That's just what I said!
Ari: Deb! I see you brought your lunch with you :D
Ari: Bad Joke?
AMD: I'm laughing on the inside....wait, no. That was just my stomach growling.
Firefall: You two need to lighten up a little. It's a Ball. Let me see a smile!....Oh, wait...I cant see your faces. My bad!
Ari and Deb: ;P
AMD: Oh my god.....will you stop with the jokes. They're not even good ones!
Ari: You're just being a bad sport.
Ari: Oh! Wrong person. I thought you were my date for a second :-?
AMD: That would be the identical paper bag's we've been stuffed into.
Firefall: Identical huh?
FMG: That's what the bag said....
Firefall: Oooh! Can I try something, please?
Deb: What is it you're trying?
Firefall: Testing how well you know your dates :D
Ari: Pfffttt. Too easy ;D
[act]Firefall grabs Deb and Ari's dates, takes them behind Gevan, BM and Helena, shuffles them like cards, then bings them back to Deb and Ari[/act]
Ari: Okaaay. So what now?
Firefall: Now you work out whose date is whose, bearing in mind Ari's date has agreed not to talk also.
Ari: Damn! Foiled :-/
Deb: Wow Fifi, you really thought this through...
LoL at Firefall's mystery date. :P
Smuffy: *shuffles feet*
Ceirwan: *sigh* Do you want to dance?
Smuffy: :D *latches onto Ceirwan*
Ceirwan: *struggles to walk to the dance floor, bearing the Smuffious growth*
Smuffy: 8-| Wait. *skedaddles off*
*comes back with Tonky and Billy*
(To billy) You are so sweet! (L) (L) (L) (L) (L) (L) (L) (L)
Ceirwan: ahem *drags smuffy over*
Smuffy: *waltzes* ^_^
