The Doctor: [act](Who has been wandering round learning as much as possible about all the people in the room) stops suddenly and sneezes then looks worried[/act] Oh... :-/ that can't be good...
Elspeth: 8-| What's not good?? Is there something wrong with the crystal dust?! I can't afford to go getting poisoned by crystal dust is have.... things... to do... ~:|
The Doctor: Dust? Poisonous? Oh, well thats a better idea :) I thought I was getting a cold! See you all later - I'm off to the bar [act]runs off waving as he goes[/act]
All those on the floor: o_O
@ Min \/ Its as plausible a reason as mine ~:|
[act]Min and Reuvan have been standing in a corner...I swear, we haven't been missing for three/four days...[/act]
Reuvan: And then let me guess - it turns out Saffron was actually his wife as well?
Min: OMG yes, only he knew her as Yolanda. How could you ... You have seen it, haven't you? :|
Reuvan: I promise, I haven't.
Min: ...ok. So, then the penny drops and Mal...
[act]the camera...er...forum focus drifts away from Min's elaborate recount of Firefly, scene for scene[/act]
Phew! That should cover for my disappearances...right? ;) :P
[act]is still laying on the floor, covered in space dust...for the past 3 days[/act]
Edward: Hmm, seems I forgot my watch. When you've lived as long as I have, time begins to lose some meaning...anyway, Tally-ho! Off to the lounge room I go.
[act]walks by Min, now enthusiastically acting out all the roles in the shoot out from 'Heart of Gold'[/act]
Wraithlord: ok this is starting to really hurt my back.
Elspeth: shush, just keep laying there and stop complaining.
Wraithlord: im just trying to fit into my role more, everyone knows that Mckay complains alot! :-"
Elspeth: well if youre going to complain, just keep it to yourself and stay here!
Wraithlord: [act]quietly grumbles for a minute then gets fascinated with crystal dust[/act]
Ama: He is right, though; That's why McKay's such a great character!
Alad: :( Then why didn't you make me dress up as McKay?
Ama: I thought if you could parade around without a shirt you might attract some fangirls of your own and then I wouldn't feel so guilty when I ignored you to squee over Arie... uh... someone else |:|
Elspeth: *to Arwen* is it just me, or did she just come close to saying she was a fan of Ariel?
Arwen: Ignore her. She's crazy.
Ariel: Hey! I have lots of fangirls, and they are NOT crazy. They're the most rational people in this room, I'm sure.
Ama: Actually, most of them are in the lounge.. or is it the bar ??? *thinks about Hel* and rational isn't exactly the word I'd use.
Ariel: ":( If they're all in the bar, why are we laying on the floor here?
Elspeth: We're here to enjoy the dust, so you and Wraithlord can be inspired with truely fail-proof plots to take over your respective worlds.
Ariel: Oh yeah... :-?
Wraithlord: I don't think that's working.
Arwen: 8-| It just... takes a little time. That's right.
Elspeth: You can't expect instant results.
Ama: I think it's working just fine :) Already, I can see how I can get rid of my competition... I mean... uh... nope, can't think of another way of phrasing that. :-/
Elspeth: *Pokes Ariel* And you said your fangirls weren't crazy :P
Alad: *starts to fall asleep*
Smuffy: *lies on the floor, motionless*
FL: *pokes Smuffy*
Murmurs: *can be heard from Smuffy*
Smuffy: Mmmm....peetariel...renjichigo...chadameon jacobartimaeushunsuisshin....thorushton...galedwardsucks... *is sleeping*
Ariel: Ha! I believe I heard my name in there!
Rushton: Big whoop, she said my name too.
Ariel: :| Well, mine was before yours! Therefore, I am far more attractive than you!
Rushton: Order doesn't count for anything!
Ariel: Does too!
Rushton: Does not!
Ariel: Does too!
Elspeth: Does not!
Elspeth: What? Oh, sorry...I got caught in the moment. ~:|
Edward: Did she say 'Edward sucks??'
FL: *pokes smuffy again* muahaha |:|
Smuffy: *more murmurs are heard*
FL: |:| |:| *gets a bucket of cold water and tips it on smuff*
Smuff: *continues to sleep*
FL: X:-/ *clashes symbols in smuff's ears*
Smuff: *continues to sleep*
FL: :| *screams wake up in smuffy's ears*
Smuffy: *sleeps on*
FL: ":( ":( *stomps around grumpily* .... :D *yells in smuffy's ear...* HEY LOOK, IT'S YOUR DREAM BOY!!!!
Smuffy: W-what?!?!?! *jumps up excitedly*
FL: :| so NOW you wake up?
Ama: *blinks* Does anybody else hear music?
Alad: *snorts in his sleep*
Ariel: ... maybe.
Ama: :O I think there's a dazzle-off going on in the lounge!
Alad: Is that the place with the cookies?
Ama: *sits up* *looks at Ariel* :-? *looks past him to Arwen and Elspeth, who are busy talking, and to Wraithlord who is still mesmerized by the glitter* |:| *whispers* Come on. Let's go see :)
Alad: o_O you're seriously gonna steal someone else's date?
Ama: Shh... of course not |:| But I bet he could win if he made an appearance :D
Ariel: o_O :| I do NOT dazzel. It would RUIN my image.
Ama: :( Fine. But it'll be entertaining to watch!
Arwen: No! Ariel, you need to stay here and [strike]keep out of trouble[/strike] take in the crystal dust!
Wraithlord: [act]sits up, and realises something[/act] hey ariel you have two girls arguing over you, they must be fangirls! XP
Arwen and Ama: no we're not! |:|
Wraithlord: [act]realises something else[/act] hey this dust is working... slightly its helped me to realise two things. :D
Arwen and Elspeth: yeah thats why you have to stay here and soak up more dust to realise more things. |:|
Wraithlord: ok. :) [act]lays back down again[/act]
Smuffy: Hmmm...I sense a glaring circle nearby... It must be the weeping angels!! 8-|
The Doctor: What? Where? What do they want?
Smuffy: We must investigate! ...Plus, I'm kinda thirsty.
Ceir: Can we stay here?
Smuffy: No. *drags Ceir off to the bar*
[act]Ari enters the Ballroom with Dean, who still looks a little worse for wear[/act]
Dean: I feel like I've been drop kicked by one seriously
Dean: ...angry demon.
Ari: Well, we should be safe in here, the Ballroom is the sane room. [act]Notices the people laying on the floor[/act]....I could be wrong though :-/
Dean: Very reassuring... [act]looks a little ill[/act]
Ari: How about we sit down until you feel better?
Deb: [act]Comes through the door followed by: Domick, Roland, Bleyd, Louis, Donard, Wind, Kevrik, Kella, Javo, Idris, Swallow, Straaka, Alexi, Tomrick and Miryum[/act] And this is the Ballroom. Isn't nice. We got a great price on it too. So much cheaper than last year and you know.... [act]rambles on and on...[/act]
Donard: Does any one feel like they were on a guided tour here?
Javo: These things just go like that. :P
Straaka: You get used to it after a while...at least I hope you do. :-/
Deb: [act]Is still giving a running commentry[/act]
Miryum: Is she always like that?
Ari: Not always. Usually when Swallow is around she's like 8-|
Kella: So why is she talking like that and going 8-|
Dean: And why is she fangirling some other guy when she has a date back in the lounge?
Narrator: Across the room Min's internal radar is quivering. As she slowly turns to look at the group the subject her radar is picking up is getting a nervous twitch in his coercive powers.
MoonFire: *runs into the ballroom with Kerd behind her*
Group of ppl that Deb just brought in: *are standing in a group formation very near the entrance*
MoonFire: *accedentally runs into Roland at the back of the group and sets off a domino effect*
Roland: AH! *falls onto Domick*
Domick: EEK! *falls onto Bleyd*
Bleyd: UUGHH! *falls onto Louis*
Louis: CURSES! *falls onto Donard*
Dornard: OOHH NOOO! *falls onto wind*
Wind: GRRR *falls onto Kevrik*
Kevrik: OH LUD! *falls onto Kella*
Kella :EeeeE! *falls onto Javo*
Javo: OOOOFFF *falls onto Idris, Swallow, Straaka, Alexi, Tomrick and Miryum*
All: uuuuuuuhhhh x_X
Kerd: Who'd a thunk that all this people would have different screaming sounds...all very interesting too!
Matthew: [act]wanders in waving a rather large text book over his head[/act]
Sian: No! My geo-book! It needs reading! [act]stops suddenly and glances down and the pile of knocked over characters[/act] What happened here?
Moonfire: Cocunuts. Lots and lots of Cocunuts. |:|
Sian: [act]nods sagely[/act] Dangerouse things those, Dean was knocked out by one not long ago. [act]starts helping people up[/act]
Ari: It's true! |:|
Matthew: You know, I haven't actually seen any cocu-
Ari and Moonfire: ":(
Magical Chocolate Bar: [act]bashes sian over the head[/act]
[act]Ari and Dean begin helping people up off the floor[/act]
Ari: I feel like I've been doing this quite a bit.
Dean: Be thankful your not the one laying unconscious on the floor. It's not the greatest feeling, waking up from that.
Donard: Thank you :)
Ari: :D No problem :kiss:
Moonfire: Is there anyone she doesnt swoon over?
Bleyd: My thanks also :)
Ari: Mmmm hmmm [act]still looking at Donard[/act]
Moonfire: Question answered x_X
Ari: You didnt get hurt during that sudden, unplanned trip to the floor did you?
Donard: No no. I'm fine, though I'm not sure how the lady over there faired.
Ari: Kella? Oh, she's a healer, she'll be fine :)
Dean: Are you going to introduce us?
Ari: You know, if we had your other brothers and Rilka here, we'd be pretty close to having all your family in one place :D
Donard: I head Anyi was here as well as Solen...and look, Kerd is here too :D
Dean: Ari.....Ari! Anybody home??
Ari: [act]Dragging eyes from Donard[/act] Sorry what?
Dean: [act]Looking a little put out[/act] Nevermind. [act]Putting his had out to Donard[/act] Hey, I'm Dean.
Donard: Ah [act]looks puzzled at Dean's hand[/act] Donard. Nice to meet you [act]puts his behind Dean's[/act]
Dean: o_O Yeah, ok. I'm just going to go..... grab something to eat. [act]To Ari[/act] You want anything?
Ari: [act]Oblivious to Dean[/act] So what do you think of our Ballroom? It's probably not as good as anything you have back on Keltor.
Dean: ::) I'm getting me some pie [act]Walks off in search of pie[/act]
Deb: [act]Joining Ari and Donard, with a few of the date horde coming up behind her[/act] I'm meant to do the full tour, but I'm sick of trying to tell these people that photography is strictly prohibited. There's even a sign [act]points to sign on far wall[/act]
Ari: Wow, how did I not notice that earlier? :-|
Deb: ....I'm sure they will find their way around soon enough, and there's plenty of people here to help them.
Louis: Where's the mens room!?
Deb: I'm sick of answering that question too :|
Louis: I'm tired and hungry. What's with the weird clothing. Why am I here? And...where is here? [act]Notices crystals on the roof and goes quiet[/act]
Ari: I'm beginning to wonder if the crystals had a duel purpose all along :-|
Donard: They are rather eye catching.
Jelli: [act]sprints into Ballroom[/act] :D Domick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Solen: Hey look, Donard's here. [act]wanders off to talk with Donard[/act]
Maryon: Where are all the Futuretellers? ::) [act]spots people she knows[/act] [act]goes to stand next to Roland[/act]
Blaze: [act]sigh[/act] ::) Jelli gets fangirly over everyone.
Jelli: [act]glomps Domick[/act] :D
Jelli: [act]has still failed to notice the apple prima in her pocket[/act]
Sian: OML! Solen and Wind in the same room! SQUIII!
Matthew: Hey look! Sian! I have your programming text book!
Sian: Yuh huh, tell me later.
Matthew: And here was me thinking that nothing could get her away from her studies :|
Sian: [act]sneaks over to listen in on Solen and Donard's conversation in the hopes that one of them will reveal themselves as the shadowman[/act]
FL: *gets up from the floor, dusting dust off her* *notices a large group* Hey, Elkar, lets go over there! :D
Elkar: *getting up too, squints over to the group* I don't think I know anyone...
FL: *shrugs* You'll meet them soon enough.
FL & Elkar: *join the group*
FL: Hey everyone! :D
Jelli: o_O Why are you so dusty?
FL: erm...we've been lying on the floor gazing at the crystals for...the past....few days. It's quite catchy. I should warn you, if you lay down and stare, you may never come back out! 8-|
Dean: *comes back*
FL: Dean... :O DEAN! :D *glomps* I can't believe it's really you!! :D
Dean: And you are...?
FL: FantasyLover!! Nice to meet you! :D
Elkar: Erm... what happened to your obsession over Rushton?
FL: Rushie? *goes dreamy eyed* ..... *shakes head and Rushie out of mind* Still there, Dean's here now though, Rushie's elsewhere. :-"
Tonks: [act]bursts out of the bucket in which she had been residing for the past week[/act] Solen, Donard, Bleyd, Shadowman!!?? Why didn't you wake me mutt?! [act]hits Billy with her newly acquired tv remote[/act]
Billy: :| I can't say i knew who they were.
Tonks: Not good enough Thundie, not good enough. [act]hops of to join Sian[/act]
Solen: Why are we at this Songforsaken place! I need to find my Glynnavyre!
Donard: :-/ I am sure the Shadowman thought it appropriate that we should come here. Besides we might as well enjoy the beauty of this place. :nod:
Solen: I'm not sure the man has the capability to recognize anything anymore. :-/
Donard: He's not that crazy.
Sian: So it's Tarsin then? :D
Tonks: I don't know, he might just be referring to himself in third person, so technically he's part crazy.
Solen: ":( HEY!
Tonks: :-} He spoke to me! [act]swoon[/act]
Sian: You know, it's probably a good thing there's a gender imbalance at obernet. I mean, you, Wind and Glynna in the same room? Things could get awkward.
Solen: Being in the same room as my Glynnavyre could never be a bad thing! [act]pauses[/act] Who are you people anyway?
Tonks: Well, it may appear that we are just a pair of giggly fan girls....
Sian: ...but things are not always as they seem ;)
Solen and Donnard: 8-|
Meanwhile....was not invited to the ball.
Matthew: [act]is sitting engrossed in Sian's programming textbook[/act] So that's how you make a boolean comparison between strings...fascinating...maybe I should join the technoguild...
Jelli: :D Domick, I lo-
Blaze: [act]has hand over Jelli's mouth[/act] Oh no you don't!
Jelli: Is someone a little jealous?
Blaze: |:( I am not!!!
Solen: [act]to Donard[/act] Is she one of the Shadowman's agents?
Donard: ??? [act]shrugs[/act] I think we should just go along with it.
Maryon: [act]is lying on floor[/act]
Jelli: [act]is sitting on Domick's chest[/act] :D
Domick: Can't. Breathe... x_X
Blaze: [act]turns around[/act] Where's a distraction when I need one?
Arwen: [act]stares expectantly at Ariel[/act]
Ariel: 8-| :D Another fangirl!
Arwen: No, not at all.
Ariel: Aww, and I just got excited :"(
Ama: It's alright Ariel, I'm here. [act]strokes his curly hair[/act] Your poor hair...
Alad: What do you mean by all that?
Ama: Nothing at all. |:|
Ariel: What do you mean, my poor hair? What's wrong with it?
Ama: She [act]glares at Arwen[/act] dyed it black and curled it! ":(
Arwen: [act]bats eyelids inncoently[/act]
Ariel: But I like my hair this way! It's so dark and mysterious. And no one will miss me when I walk into a room! When I was at Obernewtyn it was next to impossible to get anyone's attention. I had make my prescence known! This is better :nod: Now people will feel my prescence first and then tremble! [act]evil laugh[/act]
Arwen: I'm so glad you like your hair Ariel, it took so long to fix up.
Others excluding Elf: ???
Elspeth: Yes, Ariel, I agree. This hairstyle looks so much better on you. White hair just washed you out.
Ariel: It washed me out?!
Elspeth: [act]nods seriously[/act] But this black, it really brings out the colour of your eyes. They're such a beautiful blue-grey
Ariel: :D I didn't think anyone'd noticed.
Ama: I did!
Alad: How could you see them under all that-
Arwen: [act]'accidently' hits Alad[/act]
Alad: Ouch! What was that for?
Arwen: Oh, sorry Alad, I didn't see you there.
Elspeth: Ariel, I recommend you keep this hairstyle. It's really befitting of the you.
Ariel: [act]basks in all the attention[/act]
Kerd: Donard! Solen! *wonders why it took him so long to recognize these fellows* *walks over to join in Donard and Solen's conversation*
MoonFire: Well...that was quite interesting there.....I suppose I'll go and err....talk to KELLA!
Kella: *is getting up off the floor and brushing herself off*
MoonFire: *walks over to kella* Hi, Kella! How are you?
Kella: A bit shaken...I was just crushed by a bunch of people...by some idiot!
MoonFire: haha...yea...idiot! ~:|
Kella: So what is this place exactly?
Deb: I'm tired of answering THAT question too!
MoonFire: It's the mystic's ball. But what are you doing here exactly?
Tonks: Of course we're shadow agents |:|
Sian: Yes, the shadowman clearly sent you here to liase with us. |:|
Donnard: If that's so, why were you so interested to find out who the shadow man was? Shouldn't you know already? [act]looks suspicouse[/act]
Tonks: [act]waves hand dissmisevely[/act] Pull the other one, as if the shadowman would tell us his true identity, you're the only two people in the world handsome enough to know that. Nope, he kept a covering over his face the entire time he spoke to us that one time :nod:
Sian: It's true. And besides, there aren't any other shadow agents here, so why else would you possibly be here except to talk to us?
This is the first time I've had to edit a post to comply with what happened after lol :P
