  1. Foreword: This is a ,for the most part, fun party event. Anyone who knows the bride or groom or their families is welcome to come along, but it's being held in an open location anyway. It will be a short-post, non-ordered, rapid-fire type thread... which basically means, post when you think it's suitable for your character/s to do so, you don't have to bunch them in one post, but may do so if you wish, and there's no pressure for long posts, even a paragraph or two for a character is fine, you can post as quickly and often as you like, no having to wait for a post order. Feel free in the first post, to do a little background for their Easter day prior to arriving, but they'll have Easter activities in the party too. Note: There will be a part of the event, where every attending character will be affected by a spell for a brief time. They will not be harmed or forced to do anything, aside from agreed upon characters, but I'm just letting you all know. It is part of a mini-plot, and also involves the Sollozzo plot a bit. The theme is Wonderland/Fairytale Enjoy! * * * * * It had been, for the most part, a typical Easter morning, the children had got up early and run around excited for a few moments, until they realised that they couldn't find any chocolate goodies. In fact, there were no goodies. What was this?? They'd asked their mother, who had solemnly looked them in the eyes and informed them that sadly... the Easter Bunny had been hit by a car, and Easter had been cancelled... forever. She hadn't quite expected just how upset the kids would get, minus Lorelei who hadn't fallen for the ruse, and so she had caved on her April Fool's trick on them, and told them where they could find their goodies. And so they'd all pigged out on chocolate and had some family fun in the morning, before then preparing for the real event. The party that... was really just a party to celebrate the fact that she and Viktor weren't getting married yet... still. It didn't matter to Jezebel. It was a great excuse for one, and she'd decided on dressing as the Queen of Hearts, because what better costume could there possibly be for her on her day? Despite the irony of it all. Victoria Reserve had been chosen simply because it was spacious, outdoors, plenty of space for games and an egg hunt. And besides, she didn't even have to do the decorations. By the time the family had arrived there, the triplets wearing adorable mouse costumes to match each other, and Lorelei deciding to be the one and only Alice herself, Thomas and Timothy had created a veritable Wonderland within what almost looked like a hedge maze, but was really just a hedge border that was maze-like only for a couple of levels. In the centre of it was a full Wonderland tea party setting, huge and colourful and glorious, and Jezebel almost cried at the sight of it. The party getting underway as others arrived, Jez could barely contain herself as she began to greet people.
  2. Word had somehow come about regarding an idea for having some midnight eats one day in the Spencer Common room. It hadn't been a big thing, and Cassandra recalled mentioning that she was sleeping horribly and sometimes just wanted to get up and have some ice cream or something. Somehow, it had all turned into the idea for a midnight meal of sorts, that a few students decided they'd be in on. Word had got around the students in the school a bit, though there were a number who weren't interest, those who were had just been simply told to show up around midnight in the Great Hall. Somehow Cass and Alex had been lumped with cajoling the school's House Elves into making up a few things, as well as simply setting up a music system to play something quiet as background noise. After all, what was a midnight meal without at least a little bit of music to while away the time. To be honest, Cass wasn't that worried about getting in trouble either. The party they'd arranged had turned out fine, and it wasn't like they were doing anything over the top or dangerous. And to be honest, it was just nice to have something to do besides toss and turn all night. It was getting to the stage where the young women thought she'd be better just sleeping at home. Still, as the food began appearing on the tables, the redhead found herself actually feeling a little hungry. Mostly for ice cream, which she dished up a bowl of for herself while she waited for others to turn up, sitting down on a seat with her foot bouncing to the quiet rhythm of the song that was playing while she enjoyed her triple chocolate mud brownie swirl.
  3. [Note: This is an optional event and players/characters are in no way obligated to attend. It is a setting of a party with food and the intention to mix up some characters together, having some be in an awkward setting but also casual enough to connect with other characters they ordinarily may not come across outside of class. This is also a time to help define further already established friendships and connections. There doesn't need to be a lengthy post, something tangible enough to respond is all that is requested! - This note will be edited as need by as things come up in case I've missed anything.] The process of making the party more public and accepted by the Headmaster had went easily enough, being on the up-and-up as well as blatant about the fact they wanted a party to not only break in the new year but loosen up the possible stress students and staff alike may possibly be developing early on. Also helped that a good party was worth every inch of what it could give once the right things were in place to soar. With the back of Cassandra as co-host it was easy to make up a list on the many things that they'd need to set up and while it all held very good ideas they were a bit undermanned for the undertaking. That's when it had been mutually decided, even amongst the fact it'd be extremely awkward, to ask Gerry to help them out with the full preparations for it in the Great Hall. Choosing it as a venue was a no brainer and in truth something that hit Alex the moment the idea had fallen back into his lap to renew it, after all, people were expecting a party to happen and he couldn't just let them down. In this endeavor he went to every extent that was possible and then some to make sure there were as many options for the various personalities that could possibly grace the event. This included using the Great Hall dining tables as a source to produce food, which had mostly been an assortment of finger foods - Hot dogs, Hamburgers, small little mini-corndogs. As well as refreshments that were a mixture of not only the typical party punch bowls but actual bottles of water and soft drinks just in case people preferred an entirely different kind of beverage overall. Trashcan's were strategically placed near the ends of each side of the tables to make sure the amount of trash that actually landed on the floor could be maintained and contained. Alex wasn't much of a person to care for litter but they were operating on good faith with Headmaster Alan and on top of that the less work they had to clean up the earlier the hosts and helpers could get back to their own rooms and relax. A temporary stage had been built up as well slightly further back from the main eating and dancing areas. This was not only to accommodate the fact to avoid people tripping over various wires but to enhance the potential side that could over come the already massive hall as it was, being on the ground playing music would give a subpar sound and reach. That would do no one any good and more importantly it allowed for them to use the microphone as a way to reach out with their voices as a host should, to try and contain the flow of the evening so that people knew updates and what to expect within and through out the evening. On top of the stage had pre-established equipment for some of the more basic instruments: Microphone's for each station, Two Guitars, a Bass, Drums, Keyboard-Synthesizer, and a playback device to give musicians a bit of a break along with it having a karaoke hook-up with words that would reflect back towards the singer if someone really wanted to go the full length of making it a fun evening. Unfortunately, the hall was silent and that just wouldn't do even if they were just finishing up the final touches for the evening. Such as moving speakers and woofers into places, organizing the wires into pretty bundles in order to keep them from shortening out as well as reducing possible tripping and tangling occurring. Making the sure the food was easily accessible and that the dedicated dance floor in between the two tables were clear of any obstacles that could cause injury, stumbling, or hamper someone putting the moves down on the floor. Stage top is where Alexander had been most of the time making sure that the interference from high volume had been reduced, aligning instruments that were connected or had some form of output device to expand the sound were decent enough length away from one another that cross feedback couldn't hit as hard. Each instrument had been given a quick test run to make sure that they were properly tuned and ready to be played by anyone that picked them up, if they had the skill that is. To give a bit of sound to the area he'd run his fingers along a button on a device in what he called 'The Miniature DJ's corner' to put on a song to welcome people coming into the Great Hall for this experience.

  4. There are a bit of changes towards the great party that had been in the planning. Few things such as location, date/day, and hosts. The following list is indicates the changes that are taking place. Hosts: Alexander Winfield and Cassandra Sullivan Location: Great Hall (Sanctioned, Meaning there is permission.) Date of Fun: February 23rd, 2018 (A Friday, usually a party day for people anyways.) Time: 5:30PMish, This is a good point in the day because it leaves most of the morning to setup but also allows for classes to continue for the most part. Refreshments/Food: Finger foods, punch, little snacks - nothing too heavy. Music: Live( A mix of various covers), Open Karaoke (Maybe you have a very brave or silly character who wants In on some songs?) This is a party to set off the year in a big bang, something to get people involved and aware of one another not only as characters but also stir up the pot to getting others threading with one another. Also, it extends towards Tallygarunga staff, we can't just leave the old-fogies out a few of them would like to party as much as the students, maybe even more dealing with some of the more fluent troublemakers. (Adele's gonna need to supply her own Booze!). This is to make things a bit more fun too for those adult characters that have connections into the school such as parents and the like that would sufficiently be able to hear about this kind of party happening. Come, embarrass your kiddo, add a bit of a hilarious moment! Your characters won't need to stay there the entire time, it's very much an optional attendance and if you feel your character maybe out of place or would only stay for a few minutes that's fine! On the day in question I'll make an opening thread post giving the details of how the Great Hall is setup for that moment in time. Hope to see a few folks there and seeing a bit of mingling! For those intending to 'sneak contraband in' that isn't my call! If it's something your character would do, do so! We're here to have a good time with all of the characters glory in their attitude, projection of who they are, and how they feel in a very high end-social situation. (Should be pretty interesting, right?)
  5. [This thread is essentially a group event! Have your character wander in, mingle, and see what's going on. You can @tag particular characters to ensure they don't miss your character's interactions/observations!] SETTING: So it was official. Stuart Blair had taken half ownership of The Drunken Roo, and the future of the business looked bright for the first time in years. Phil Davenport, who'd been trying to run the sinking ship since Matt's accident, was actually smiling as he completed the dinner service. To celebrate, locals of the Narrie area had flocked to their much-loved pub to boost business just that bit further, with a Pub Night. * * * You only had to say the word "pub" before Alan was interested. He'd come early for one of Phil's top-notch chicken parmigiana and a few early beers. The day had been.. unexpectedly rough, but nothing a good pub night couldn't fix. Thank goodness for Friday. He sat in his usual spot, a stool so used that it had an actual impression of his butt-cheeks on it, flattened over decades of Alan sitting there. With one elbow resting on the bar, and a beer in his other hand---Alan tried to relax. His Mum had known almost immediately that something was wrong. Well, not wrong, just... needling at him. A stupid and unnecessary annoyance that had been stuck in the back of his mind ever since he'd seen the stupid invitation to conference. Why did it bother him to see his wife's name there next to his? Because she wasn't here, and she wouldn't be there, and his stupid deputy had left for Canada at the end of the school year so that wasn't an option this time either. Stupid deputy going to stupid Canada to stupid look after her stupid sick mother. At this moment, Alan decided that he hated Canada. This was clearly all Canada's fault. So he sat and sulked in his corner, waiting for the beer to work the magic that only beer could. (Alan)
