Meri: [act]eventually hears Meza calling her and turns around[/act] Hi Meza! :)
Meza: Hey Meri. Are you having fun?
Meri: Well I only just got here and then my date kindly pointed out that as my name starts with an 'M' I could've just gone as myself! :(
Meza: Meza starts with an 'M' too, so does Min. I bet theres plenty of people here whose names begin with M but they all dressed up, and why wouldn't you - dress ups are fun! :nods:
Meri: They are! I just to dress up all the time as a kid, but then I ran out of clothes and my friends didn't want to play anymore and.. [act]realises she's rambling[/act] No, that's beside the point! Your costume is fine, you chose something sensisble, but I had to go as a masndarin! Mermaids are charming and lovely, I look like I shoved my finger in a power socket!
Meza: [act]stares at the scenery just past Meri's giant hair[/act] It's not that bad.
Meri: -_- [act]narrows eyes[/act] Look me in the yes and say that.
Meza: [act]drags her eyes to meet Meri's[/act] Your hair is ni- It's niii- Yourhairlookslovely!
Meri: ^^; Thank you! :D I do look rather good don't I? I am so glad the Magnificently Merry Martial-Artist didn't talk me out of my costume!
Wind: I'm still right behind you, you know. Listening to every word you say.
Meri: [act]acts innocent[/act] Did you hear something?
Meza: Huh? o_O
Meri: Oh wait, it was just the wi- [act]can't finish her joke because she is doubled over with laughter at the hilarity of herself[/act]
Wind: Funny. -_-
Meri: [act]wipes a tear from her eye[/act] I'm sorry, I'm sorry I just couldn't resist! Friends?
Wind: [act]thinks: I'm not sure this lady is entirely sane but she seems okay now she's gotten over 'the hair' incident.. I'll give her a go![/act] :) Friends.
Meza: Let's go grab some water pistols and 'play' with Rushton! ;D
Meri & Wind: Let's do it! ;D
[act]A small way across the beach, Ari's head suddenly snaps up[/act]
Ari: Did I hear someone say water pistols?
Lanalor: MY SUPERIOR BEING HEARD MENTION OF WATER PISTOLS FROM A DISTANCE NOT FAR FROM US.
Ari: [act] slightly deafened by Capslock!Lanalor[/act] I THINK I MAY HAVE TO CONSULT THE BALL RULE BOOK ABOUT THOSE. [act]pulls book from inner pocket of jacket and flips pages[/act]
Min: -_- There's got to be a spell to get rid of unnecessary caps lock.
Bleyd: o_O Hey, do I have one of those in here somewhere? [act]begins checking jacket pockets[/act]
Ari: Ah, here we are, the weapons section.
Thou shalt not bring a dangerous weapon to the Mystics Ball. This includes swords, bows, arrows, daggers, throwing stars, destroyer pigs-
Min: [act]Looking over Ari's shoulder[/act] Anything about magic wands in there?
Ari: -Malik, weapons containing bullets, weaponmachines, wayward Jedi-
Halina: Who added that one in!?
Ari: -white stick, glitter, Rushton's sense of humor, Rushton's ego-
Rushton: Hey! [act]more watery flailing[/act]
Ari: -Rushton's dignity, nun chucks, tomahawks, sacks full of door knobs, sports bats, Elspeth's sensitivity, darts, stiletto shoes-
Min: Now you're just making stuff up.
Ari: -and, apparently, bodies of water... [act]looks at ocean[/act] Well, we certainly broke the last one about a million times over.
Halina: Although it seems to be written in different ink to the rest of the rules. Someone must have added that in later.
Rushton: |:| [act]attempts to flail a little less conspicuously[/act]
Bleyd: [act]clearly disappointed that his pocket search yielded nothing[/act] No mention of water pistols then?
Meri, Wind and Meza: [act]resume search for water pistols[/act]
Ari: Not there. But there are more sections to check yet.
[act]wanders in dressed as a Murdered Mulan[/act]
Helena: [act]flails rubber sword of Shan Yu around enthusiastically[/act] Hehehe~ [act]stops suddenly and sniffs the air[/act] My Tormenting Rushton sense is tingling... [act]dashes off to join in the Rushton-baiting.[/act]
Meri, Wind and Meza: [act]notice a fast-moving body dashing towards them that is Helena[/act] O_O [act]point as yet non-existant water pistols at the blur-that-is-Helena[/act]
Meri: Take aim!
Wind, Meri and Meza: [act]start shooting the as yet non-existant water pistols Die Hard 2 style[/act]
Meri: [act]shouts over the sound of the as yet non-existent water pistols[/act] Hey Meza!
Meza: [act]shouts back[/act] Yeah?
Meri: Where's your date?
Meza: [act]lowers her non-existent water pistol and clicks fingers[/act] O_O I knew I forgot something! DARDELAN? WHERE ARE YOU?
Lanalor: WHAT IS THIS? SOMEONE ELSE IS USING MY SUPERIOR FORM OF COMMUNICATION! IT MUST NOT CONTINUE! [act]head towards Meza[/act]
Min: :P Maybe I should do something about this..
[act]Lumpy Space Princess arrives back from the chase, out of breath and covers ears[/act]
LPS: What on earth is that terrible sound.
Roland: Domick's playing the guitar.[act]Points at Domick who is strumming his guitar very passionately[/act]
LPS: Make it stop! :O I am going deaf here.
Domick: Why does no one appreciate my talent! :(
Roland: We can't apprciate what you don't have.
Arwen: Harsh, but true. wow at least i didn't have to break the news to him.
Domick: You guys are so mean. I am going some where else now, where people will enjoy my music!
[act]Domick stomps off.[/act]
Kay: Phew, I thought it would never end.
LPS: You know, everyone is going to tell him go away when he plays. He will come back here in a few minutes time!
Kay: Poo X|! [act]goes to fill up water pistol[/act]
Meza: O_O [act]sees Lanalor coming to avenge his superior method of communication, runs and hides behind a palm tree[/act]
Lanalor: I SEE YOU THERE, THEIF OF LANGUAGE! SUCH A PUNY TREE CANNOT HIDE YOU FROM MY SUPERIOR EYESIGHT.
Meza: [act]tries to scramble up the palm tree[/act] CURSE YOU MERMAID TAIL, SHOULD THAT YOU HINDER ME THUS!
Lanalor: AND STILL SHE USES MY SUPERIOR FORM OF COMMUNICATION! WHAT BLATANT OFFENSE!
Dardelan: [act]reaches hand down and pulls Meza up into the palm tree[/act]
Meza: [act]whispers[/act] Where have you been? If I lose you in the first few days they'll never let me back in! -_-
Dardelan: [act]has been hiding in the palm tree[/act] Well, I've been a) avoiding that manbeast down there and b), looking for Bruna.
Meza: I'm sure she'll turn up. :3
Dardelan: I hope so, I haven't seen her in- [act]trails off[/act] Meza?
Dardelan: Hold onto the tree.
Lanalor: IF YOU WILL NOT COME DOWN AND FACE ME I SHALL BRING YOU DOWN MYSELF! [act]shakes tree back and forth[/act]
Dardelan and Meza: ~:| [act]swing back and forth, clutching the bending limbs of the palm tree[/act]
Meza: Miiiiiiin, Arriiiiii . . . . iiiisn't theere sooomethiiing iiiiin thee ruuuules aaaabooooout thiiiiis? ~:| [act]loses hold on tree and tumbles to the ground[/act]
Dardelan: [act]jumps down before he falls off too[/act]
Lanalor: AHA! NOW I HAVE CAUGHT YOU, THIEF!
Meza: O_O ~:|
Kay: Here, catch! [act]tosses her newly filled water pistol to Meza[/act]
Meza: [act]fumbles but manages to catch the plastic, flying, water-filled projectile and squirts Lanalor in the face[/act]
Lanalor: [act]screws up his face on impact of the water[/act] What is this wand of water?
Meza: [act]chucks the waterpistol back to Kay[/act] Thanks, Kay, dear! :D [act]to Dardelan[/act] And now we run!
[act]Meza and Dardelan sprint off down the beach, do a circuit of the island and arrive back next to Meri[/act]
Meri: I was just about to write your obituary
Meza: As you can see: Mermaid tail; not so practical after all. ;P
Meri: You found Dardelan! . . . but no water pistols?
Meza: [act]still catching her breath: she never was much of a runner[/act] He . . . [act]gasp[/act] was hiding . . . [act]deep breath in[/act] in a tree. ::)
Dardelan: Say, Meri, you haven't seen a Sadorian woman by the name of Bruna have you?
Meri: No, sorry. :-/ [act]turns to Meza[/act] The search for the water pistols continues! :D
Sorry if it's a bit long. :P
Sionainn: [act]eyes Min and her wand quietly[/act] If I could just get that Lanalor fellow to conjure up me one of those [act]strokes beard[/act] |:|
Rushton: As Master of Obernewtyn, I forbid it!! /:(
Sionainn: O_O [act]jumps[/act] Oh [act]spins around to find a dripping wet Rushton standing behind her, puppy bouncing around his legs[/act] Didn't see you there!
Rushton: Now what did you do with the towels already?
Sionainn: |:| Oh, they are over by Min and Helena over there
Rushton: :D Excellent! [act]trots off[/act]
Sionainn: O_o How does he not know better by now? [act]shrugs, spots Lanalor[/act] . . . Oh, Lanaloooor!
Lanalor: NOT NOW, FAIR BEARDED LADY! THERE ARE THIEVES ADMIST US AND I MUST WROUGHT JUSTICE UPON THEM.
Sionainn: [act]strides along[/act] A mighty quest, I shall join you to vanquish these heathens! |:| However, I will need a device in which to help me wrought justice!
Lanalor: BEARDED LADY, DO NOT FEAR! I AM LANALOR AND DO NOT NEED ASSISTANCE. MY SKILLS ARE FAR SUPERIOR AND YOU WOULD BUT HINDER ME.
Sionainn: You've been outrun by a mermaid . . . a mermaid on land! No offence, mate, but these skills of yours are rather underwhelming . . . and somewhat deafening.
[act]A dark veil of mist draws across the sun and everyone pauses, looking around in confusion...and fear. The waves still. The bright summer colours dim. [/act]
Voice: Sorry guys! Still working on controlling my costume parameters.
[act]The mist contracts to a vaugly human-sized blob and drifts over towards the gazebo[/act]
Bibliophile: So much for mist being an easy costume choice... Hurry up Kerd, we've already missed the first few days.
Kerd: [act]A second clump of mist joins the first[/act]I still don't understand why I am walking around in the middle of a cloud. :|
Bibli: Mist, not cloud; very important difference, only one starts with a M.
Kerd: Whatever. But did you have to give me my own personal bad weather for a beach party. [act]runs into a tree[/act] For Lanalor's sake! Can't you at least make it so I can see out of this thing?
Bibli: Oops, I'll just fix that
Lanalor: DID SOMEONE CALL MY NAME? [act]turns away from Sionainn and comes striding over[/act] AND WHO ARE YOU WHO HIDES HIS FACE WREATHED IN FOG?
Kerd: [act]jumps, then bows[/act] My lord, I am Kerd, son of Cheiftain Fulig of Vespi, betrothed to Unys of Iridom. And the mist is all her fault.
Lanalor: AH. I THOUGHT YOU BORE A RESEMBLANCE TO MY SEPT-KIN, ALTHOUGH I HAVE NOT HEARD THE NAME FULIG AND IT IS HARD TO TELL WITH THE MANY VISITORS HERE NOT CLAIMING A SEPT.
Kerd: Wait, did you just say that you are Lanalor? The Lanalor? :O
Bibli: You can see through our costumes? Also, would you mind lowering the volume a bit, it makes conversations kinda difficult.
Lanalor: THE EYES ARE EYES ARE EASILY DECIEVED, BUT I LOOK WITH THE MIND WHICH SEES ALL THINGS TRUELY. AND WHAT IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE AND MY VOICE? IT IS MERELY A CONSIQUENCE OF MY PROJECTIONFROM THE VOID.
Bibli: ::) [sub]Yeah, right. Youjust like trying to sound impressive.[/sub]
[act]Puffed out from all this running around the place, Daniel sits down in the gazebo, only to see Lanalor stride up to him[/act]
Lanalor: WHO ARE YOU, ROUND ORBED-ONE?
Daniel: I am the moon. And who might you be, capslock-shouting-one?
Lanalor: I AM LANALOR!
Daniel: Yes, I got that from your shouting, I could hear you 10 threads away.
Lanalor: WHAT ARE THESE THREADS YOU SPEAK OF?
Daniel: Oh, nothing |:| [act]wonders where Elspeth has got to, if only I could farseek her :idea: [/act]
Daniel: Oh, great Lanalor, I hear your magic is, uh, great, could you give me the power to farseek?
Lanalor: OF COURSE, ROUND-ORBED ONE, GREAT LANALOR, CAN DO ANYTHING.
Daniel: Super, [act]tries to farseek, fails[/act]. Uh, are you going to do it?
Lanalor: FIRST ROUND-ORBED ONE MUST EXPLAIN 'FARSEEK'.
Daniel: ::facepalm:: [act]He doesn't know farseeking, he's from the wrong story[/act]. Uh, the ability to talk to another person through thinking.
Lanalor: THIS I CANNOT DO, THAT IS LUNACY [act]Daniel sniggers at irony[/act]
Daniel: [act]mutters[/act] clearly you aren't quite so great after all
Lanalor: BUT IF IT IS, THIS ELSPETH-CAT, YOU SEEK, I WISH YOU GOOD FORTUNE, SHE HAS RUN OFF INTO THE GREAT BLUE.
Daniel: Do you mean the ocean?
Lanalor: GREAT LANALOR MEANS WHAT HE MEANS.
Daniel: ::facepalm:: I thought cats hated water.... [act]wanders off to find Elspeth, wondering if the moon is waterproof....[/act]
[act]Kay and Swallow run after a fleeing Rushton, water pistols at the ready[/act]
Swallow: [act]puffing[/act] Why exactly are we trying to attack the Master of Obernewtyn?
Kay: [act]puffing[/act] Because it's fun? Truth be told, I would normally be standing by the food table, but I can't seem to find one yet...
Swallow: [act]Runs through the mist and crashes into someone[/act] Ouch!
Kerd: Ouch! Lanalor, is that you?
Swallow: Lanalor? You mean the person that TALKS LIKE THIS?
Lanalor: [act]pops up from behind some bushes[/act]EXCUSE ME KERD, SON OF CHIEFTAIN FULIG OF VESPI, BETROTHED TO UNYS OF IRIDOM, THAT MORTAL IS AN IMPOSTOR. HE HAS NOT THE AWESOME PRESENCE OF A MAN SUCH AS I. DO NOT BE DECEIVED MY BRETHREN. SHIELD YOUR EYES AWAY FROM SUCH -
Swallow: [act]interrupts Lanalor's long-winded speech[/act] I'm not Lanalor.
Kay: [act]realises that Swallow is missing in the mist[/act] Swallow? Where did you go?
Swallow: Phew, my date calls. [act]runs out of the mist, water dripping from his clothes[/act]
Kay: [act]sees a dripping Swallow emerge from the mist with his make up intact[/act] You're make up stayed! [act]hugs Swallow[/act] Ergh, you're all wet though.
Swallow: It's okay, I have a change of clothing. [act]winks[/act]
Kay: You do? o_O
Swallow: [act]steps into some bushes nearby[/act] Allow me to present to you...[act]pops out from the bushes[/act]
Kay: [act]gasps[/act] You have got to be kidding me...
Swallow: [act]grins devilishly[/act] I present to you...The Mad Hattered Marie!
Kay: [act]covers her face[/act] This is so embarrassing.
Meisje arrives dressed as Merlin (from Scatterlings) with her date Ariel who is dressed as a Mermaid.
Meisje: Hurry up Ariel, we are already late! Just a little farther to the gazebo.
Ariel: I don't understand who I have to where this tight skirt or this red wig, let alone these coconuts.
[act]Meisje: snickers to herself about the wonderful irony and can't wait to see what other people think about the Obernetter joke.[/act]
Meisje: I told you it's a costume party. And you are my blind date which means I got to pick your costume. Besides it's not like you haven't worn a dress before, remember your Herder attire?
[act]Ariel: glares at Meisje[/act]
Ariel: Not the same thing, that was part of the bigger plan. X|
[act]Meisje: smiles mischeiviously.[/act]
Meisje: And this is part of my bigger plan. [act]Snickers to herself[/act] XD
Ariel: What does that mean?
Meisje: Oh you'll find out soon enough.
Ariel: And what are you supposed to be?
Meisje: Well, I'm basically another type of Elspeth. Speaking of.....hurry up! I see her now!
Domick: [act]is still playing badly but away from the gazebo[/act] ... And then I said to Kella my sweet -
Ariel: [act]Stops in his tracks[/act] What is that awful soulful sound?
Domick: [act]sees Ariel[/act] Finally a lady who knows good music :D
Ariel: /:( How dare you insult me so? An evil mastermind such as myself-
Domick: [act]narrows his eyes[/act] Is really just a kid who likes power and pain.
Ariel: :O How'd you know?
Domick: [act]deadpan[/act] I read your mind.
Arwen: [act]wanders over to find out why the music stopped[/act] Who's mind did you read? [act]notices Ariel and his costume[/act] XD That's a good one! Who's your date?
Ariel: -_- No one's my-
Meisje: [act]elbows him[/act] And that would be me!
Arwen: Excellent costume - although I would have just dyed his hair. He's used to it by now :D
Arwen: Oh, right - have you finished playing at the moment?
Domick: No, I was interrupted while I was working on a song. Want to hear it? [act]opens his mouth to launch into verse[/act]
Arwen: I'll wait until you finish it, that way I'll get the full effect.
Domick: That makes sense. I'll perform it for everyone when I'm done :D
[act]Wraithking drags himself out of the water and walks up to the gathering at the gazebo[/act]
Ariel: What is that supposed to be?
WK: I'm a minion fish boy
Ariel:[act] huffs and stomps his foot[/act] How dare you insult me minion!
Erin[act] comes storming up with her duster[/act] There you are WK!
Ariel: Is that you Erin?
Erin: O_O No! you can't see me like this! [act]hides behind Arwen[/act]
[act]Blackbird arrives, pulling along a toy wagon with a large fishbowl in it. Inside the fishbowl is a whale.[/act]
Everyone: [act]watches BB drag the wagon up to the edge of the water[/act]
BB: Oh Lud, I'm late again! Sorry guys, Lev is so heavy to drag (and let's ignore that I picked this costume-without-legs for him...) |:|
Lev: [act]muffled noises from inside the whale[/act]
BB: No no, not a fish - you're a whale. A whole by the name of Monstro in fact. You....ah...."helped"....Pinocchio become a real boy. And I'm Megara, close friend of Hercules! [act]BB tips Lev/Monstro out of the wagon and into the ocean[/act] Ok. We're here now, and you can swim around, right?
Lev: [act]muffled noises sound indignant[/act]
BB: Yes yes, the water level will be higher once the tide is in. You'll be fine.
Lev: [act]splashes around a bit[/act]
BB: That's the spirit!
Helena: [act]suddenly pulls a hooded figure out from behind herself[/act] Come on, Sally! Don't be shy! You're supposed to be my Murderer!
Salamander: Shy? Me? Just because you forgot me doesn't mean that I'm shy! [act]fumes under his/her/its hood[/act] AND DON'T CALL ME "SALLY"! /:(
Hell: Well, I like how sexually ambiguous you're being- keeping all theorists happy, are we? [act]pats him/her/it on its/her/his hooded head[/act] Oooh. I like this. You should stay unconfirmed forever! :D
Salamander: I don't have to listen to this! [act]stomps foot in irritation[/act] I've been here all of five minutes and I've been insulted numerous times already! And I can't even have you dragged away, kicking and screaming to be sold off for a few gold! -_-
Hell: ...did you just stamp your foot at me?
Hell: You totally just stamped your foot at me! [act]breaks out into a giggle fit[/act] [act]starts calling out for Sionainn[/act] Shonks! Shonks! Halp! Can't! Breathe! [act]keels over giggling, holding on to Salamanders leg for support[/act] XD
Salamander: [act]walks off in a slow, halting huff, dragging a maniacally giggling Helena after him/her/it[/act] -_-
Meisje: It seems you're not the only one stomping your foot Ariel.
[act]Meisje bursts into a fit of giggles.[/act]
Meisje: psst, look who just arrived, your sweetheart Salamander. Obviously the gender reversal roles were planned out. XD
[act]Ariel freezes and ducks behind Meisje, hiding from Salamander[/act]
Ariel: No, no, Salamander can't see me like this! Isn't it enough that I'm a pretty boy!
Meisje: Awww, it's okay Ariel. Your not the only one dressed to impress. Take a look at Rushton. Oh and there's Lanalor! And don't forget your fellow Merman Dardelan.
Ariel: SILENCE! You will pay for this Mer...Meisj, er, whatever your name is.
Meisje: Well that's a little rude. I'm your date and you don't even remember my name. Well that's okay. Three mermaids, er, mer-people at this ball and Three Merlin's! Something FISHY is going on.
[act]Meisje slaps knee at her own bad joke.
Deb: Swallow...wet...shirt... Damn I missed it.
Salamander: [act]Stops dragging Helena down the beach[/act]. That Gypsy /:( He will feel the full force of my wrath!
Solen: can you point a little of that wrath at her, [act]points to Deb[/act], this costume is heavy...and hot.
Deb: )P suck it up princess, prince, whatever your title is or I'll sic the *scp* on you.
*scp* : Dates must comply with the rules or be exterminated
Ariel: Just wait and see if I comply.
Deb: nice to see that we didn't have anyone push Rushton into water this year. He jumped in all by himself. :P I'm sorry I missed the jelly though.
Min: there's still plenty of the ball left to come up with some other diabolic...I mean nice situation to put him in.
Bleyd: [act]looking around at arriving guests[/act] Halina, I bet you're not so upset about our costumes now, hey? :)
Halina: [act]indignantly[/act] I was not upset. I'm a Jedi, a people free of passion and dangerous emotions.
Halina: I was merely concerned about you and Ari melting in the- Oh! They're serving drinks in hollowed out pineapples!! :D
Ari: o_O You come from a galaxy far far away, and this is what excites you?
Halina: [act]shrugging dismissively[/act] I'm cooped up in the recesses of your twisted mind for most of the year. I'm enjoying what little freedom I get. [act]heads off toward the juice bar nestled under the shade of some palms[/act]
Bleyd: [act]slightly distracted[/act] Do you think I should be following the Holder to ensure his safety? There are quite a few unsavory characters around.
Ari: I think he will be fine Bleyd. He seems to have things well in hand. [act]looks down the beach to see Lanalor yelling at some mist[/act] ......Riiiight.
Bleyd: Perhpas I should send for a white cloak?
Ari: Only if they're the kind that put people in padded cells.
Bleyd: Padded cells?
Ari: Never mind. How about we join Deb and her date. I'm guessing you and Solen don't require introductions.
Bleyd: Should we wait for Halina?
Ari: Nah. She'll find us eventually...... she always does -_-
[act]Min waves wand around over a cauldron, humming tunelessly.[/act]
Lanalor: [act]slightly damp[/act] WHERE HAST THOU BEEN, WITCH?
Min: [act]innocently[/act] Oh, here and there. Where hast thou-- where have you been?
Lanalor: NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. I AM OMNIPRESENT.
Min: [act]tsks[/act] Oh, you are not :P hand me those sultanas, will you?
Lanalor: [act]hands them[/act] WHAT ARE YOU--
Min: [act]calmy[/act] Right. That's enough. [act]swish and flick[/act] Quietus.
Lanalor: [act]stops mid-proclamation[/act] ...what did... [act]shakes head, like he's trying to dislodge water from his ears[/act]
Min: :) much better [act]takes sultanas and adds them to the cauldron[/act].
Halina: [act]sidles over, sipping from a straw in a half-pineapple cup[/act] Are you mixing a potion?
Min: nope, cooking.
Min: [act]stirs mixture[/act] Am I Molly Weasley, or am I not? ;)
Halina: Err...all right, whatever. Can I try some?
Lanalor: [act]blinking a little[/act] I would like to try it as we--
Min: [act]pause[/act] Um...you don't want this.
Halina: :D and there we are. What are you cooking up?
Min: A surprise :) [act]extracts rock-like objects from the cauldron[/act] This thing bakes really well, I'm amazed --
Domick: [act]guitar slung over shoulder[/act] Oh look! Cake! [act]takes three and stuffs them in his mouth[/act]
Min: Domick, NO!
Halina: [act]same time[/act] wait!
Domick: [act]looks between them, mid-chew, his cheeks puffed like a squirrel's...and swallows[/act] You know...these taste kinda [act] hiccup! [/act] ...funny...
Min: [act]facepalm[/act] Ohhhhh Lud...
[act]Domick opens his mouth to speak again, but explodes into bubbles and a cloud of pink smoke. When the smoke clears, there's a piglet in amongst Domick's clothes and guitar.[/act]
Halina: ...well...at least this has stopped him singing? ...
Lanalor: I am regretting fixing your wand more and more...
Alad: Why is there a pig here? Did it escape from the farms? [act]goes to pick DomickPig up[/act]
Loren: That's worse than his guitar playing... X:S
Min: ~:| oops...
DomickPig: [act]makes a break for it[/act] [act]runs into Rushton[/act]
Rushton: [act]still has not managed to find a towel[/act] o_O
Min + Loren: XD
Ari: Well, that escalated quickly :-/
Rushton: [act]realises what bumped into him, bends down and picks up a squealing DomickPig [/act] There there, Hush. [act]pats DomickPig soothinly[/act]
DomickPig: [act]is lulled into calmness[/act]
Min: o_O You know, even after all this time, I'm actually surprised Rushton is, in fact, a pig whisperer.
Bleyd: Yet give the man a puppy, and it's all splashing a screaming like a girl.
Rushton: I do not squeal like a girl!
Loren: X| The sound, it's too much!
Halina: [act]to Min[/act] You wouldn't happen to have some kind of antidote hidden in the nice brown sweater vest you're wearing, would you?
Lanalor: I could reverse the magic that has made this man a pig.
Min: Uh..... [act]takes stock of magic ingredients[/act] I think I still have some sultanas here somewhere.
Halina: Not that there's any hurry. This is kind of entertaining [act]slurps drink loudly[/act]
Bleyd: It is a tad disturbing though [act]glances over to Rushton, who is now cooing at DomickPig[/act]
Deb: Hey Ari, there anything in that rule book about having pigs at the ball?
Ari: Don't know. I'll look it up. [act]searches pockets[/act] Hey! my rule book is gone :|
Halina: [act]slurps drink again[/act]
Solen: Can I take this costume off yet?
Halina: No way, you've still got more than a week.
Ari: [act]Still absently looking for rule book,[/act] Pity, it's covering such a great package.
Rushton: [act]Cuddles Domick Pig and croons in his ear[/act]
Domick Pig: [act]Squeallllllllll[/act]
Loren: I think you are scaring him. :P
Rushton: What? What do you mean HIM.....
Min: [act]Falls on sand laughing...waves wand with a swish and flick.[/act]
Elspeth: [act]comes running to the group[/act] Rushton my love! I'm- [act]sees Rushton being levitated above the sand[/act]
[act]Everyone pretends that they can't hear Rushton[/act]
DomickPig: [act]squeals and runs in circles under Rushton[/act]
Alad: [act]stares at DomickPig[/act] That's strange, I can't beastspeak to it...
Daniel: Elspeth! Stop running off! [act]runs up to the group panting and sweating[/act] Phew, it's hard to run in this costume.
Elspeth: We have to help Rushton stop flying!
Lanalor:[sub]I told everyone before that I can reverse this magic. Mortals, listen to me![/sub]
[act]Kay and Swallow walk up to the group[/act]
Min: [act]starts laughing harder when she sees Swallow in his new costume, her wand still in her hand[/act]
Rushton: [act]Rolls and jerks around in the air[/act] Get me down!
Kay: Finally, we found Rushton. [act]squirts Rushton with her water pistol[/act] Heehee. [act] looks innocently to everyone else[/act] Does anyone else want a water pistol?
Arwen: [act]is carrying her squirming puppy[/act] Did anyone see where Domick went? I found some of my old notes about guitar playing and thought he could do with them.
Rushton: Someone let me down so I can calm the poor pig.
Arwen: [act]sees Domick's clothes and guitar[/act] Uh, why are Domick's clothes and guitar on the ground?
DomickPig: [act]squeals louder[/act]
Rushton: [act]shouts louder[/act]
Everyone: [act]covers their ears[/act]
Arwen: :O Domick? Why-how-what?
Rushton: [act]stops shouting his demands[/act] Domick? Why are you calling the little pig Domick?
Lanalor: If anyone would listen they would know I can fix this.
Min: [act]regains composure[/act] I think Domick will return to himself without any help. He just needs a little time.
Loren: Any guess as to how long?
Min: Well since he ate three of the cakes, I'd say it would take-- [act]mentally counting[/act]
Halina: Who knows?
Min: He could be himself at any given moment?
Arwen: [act]sets Missy on the ground[/act] Well, since this is PG and all I should probably go hide him and his clothes somewhere unpopulated.
Missy: [act]starts jumping at Rushton's feet[/act]
Rushton: Elspethlove, save me!
Kay: [act]squirts Rushton again[/act]
