[Christmas Party Log] || [I wish you a Merry Christmas~] || [Open]

Characters: Everyone ever.
Setting: Floor 38- On Christmas Eve and Christmas.
Format: Action or prose, whichever format you prefer.
Summary: CHRISTMAS PARTY! Now that the Jason!Flu is finally over, all the characters can celebrate Christmas in peace (nearly?) and eat some acceptable food that was cooked by the volunteers. The 38th floor is, as usual, the floor where the party happens and has been entirely decorated for Christmas. The Christmas Party will be open for Christmas Eve and the entirety of Christmas. For characters who wouldn't check this floor, the party has been advertised on the network.

As is usual with these party logs, it's free game! Feel free to post a mingle thread for your character as they spend time in the party or an activity (singing, dancing? playing game? gift giving? anything). Add to that, you're free to start as many threads as you want, be they open or closed! Please put in the header your character's name or the activity's name. If a prompt is closed, then please make sure to write it in the header too!

Warning: Fun times?

The lounge on the 38th floor has been entirely decorated with ribbons, tinsels, Christmas balls and many other things- All hand-made of course. The first thing that can probably be noticed upon entering is the majestic Christmas Tree sitting near the entrance, decorated as well and with wrapped boxes at its feet. There are a lot of empty spaces in the room for people to dance if so they wish as well as empty tables to organize games or sit down, in short everything needed to run an activity. Oh, and there is mistletoe hung at the floor's entrances. Nothing bad really.

Most important there is a lot of food in here, placed on a couple tables. Most of that food comes from the tower's restaurant-- Someone must have done a lot of work for the tower these last days. At least here and now you don't have to risk a limb to get some quality food. Aside from the restaurant food there are also cakes, yule logs as well as many cooked meats and fruits.

Last but not least, this floor isn't as cold here as the rest of the tower. There are a total of what appears to be four fireplaces (hand-made as all the other decorations) in the room, one against each of the walls with fires lit within them. Of course these are not exactly normal fires and a lot of resources and energy has been spent to make them so they will last for the entirety of the party- After this they will be unusable, but at least until then they will keep the room at a normal temperature.

Frodo Baggins

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-24 05:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[ frodo is familiar with parties. after all, he is a hobbit, and of bag end, no less! the last true party he recalls still, and always will be bilbo's 111th birthday (and his 50th ). those days seem so long ago.

so much has happened.

still, if you haven't run over him or stepped on him, you'll find the hobbit seated by one of the fireplaces, a few things on his plate, ( it's a curious thing when a hobbit does not eat 7 meals a day ) and a misty look in his eyes. there's a faint smile on his lips as if remembering another time.

when he isn't sitting, he'll muster the energy to look for familiar faces. he did after all, help provide some recipes. then again, this fire is very warm. it's been long even in his travels since they could have use of a fire. the closer one drew to mordor, the more light was banished in the dark places. ]
sageprincess: (Heavenly lights)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-24 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[After some time, a fair elven-looking woman will approach the fireplace Frodo is seated by, a plate of her own food in hand. She tilts her head at him, in question, but smiles in a friendly way.]

Would you mind another joining you by the fire?
ringbearer: (◎just keep your head low)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-24 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[ he does notice that. the ears, are most telling. still, he smiles faintly, nodding his head as he scoots, as if there were any need, given his size. the voice he speaks with is hardly that of a young child's. ]

I'd be glad for it, my lady.
sageprincess: (Agreeable natures)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-24 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[She thought that might be the case. He looked far too world-weary when he was staring into the fire to be a youth. Still, she bows her head slightly in gratitude before taking her seat, unable to resist stretching out just a bit to soak in the warmth.]

Ah, thank you very much. It is quite a welcome change from the inescapable chill we have had to deal with all month.

[As are the festivities a welcome change from dodging flu-ridden Tower residents, but she won't mention that.]

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-27 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
[ frodo is used to the cold. too many nights sleeping in the dark places of the world with no pillow to rest his head. so he takes the warmth where he can

he glances over at her with those same worn eyes. she might be an elf, or something else entirely, but if anything she's young. regal bearing aside. ]

You've dwelled here for a time.
sageprincess: (Apologetic smiles)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-27 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
[... Now, that wasn't something she was expecting. Though her smile remains in place, something in it closes off, as though she's put up a wall around that fact and so long as that wall stays up, it can't hurt her.]

Nearly a year now, I believe. It seems like longer.

[A tilt of the head.]

Is it so obvious?

[ Sakuya feels rather strange actually attending a party instead of serving at one, so it may seem odd that someone in a nice outfit is carrying around a silver platter with drinks. Still, if it is a party she should do what is comfortable for her, yes?

So she lowers the platter of drinks to him. ]
Would you like some, sir? [ But noticing how thoughtful and alone he seems-- ] Or perhaps a conversation instead.

[ Because a good server knows how to cater to everything! ]
ringbearer: (◎use well the days)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-24 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[ frodo would be inclined to agree, and when she arrives, he greets her with a standard smile, a bit weary, but no less wellmeaning. ]

I'd be glad for both counts, though I cannot promise to be the most interesting of speakers. Thank you, Miss.

[personal profile] red_tea 2012-12-24 08:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She passes him the glass. ] That's fine. I've plenty of stories to share at banquets... for better or for worse.
ringbearer: (◎so make your siren's call)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-27 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
Do you? What sort of stories?

[personal profile] red_tea 2012-12-27 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
Fairy tales, mostly...

[By now, Haldir has made Legolas remove his hood and keep it down. So this elf is walking over to the Hobbit with shoulder length hair. If they really wanted an easier way to distinguish the two Legolas' then this is likely the easiest.

Taking a seat near Frodo, glass of wine in hand, he gives the Hobbit a smile and leans forward.]

Are you enjoying yourself, Frodo?
ringbearer: (◎how can the body die)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-27 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ it was easier to identify. frodo looks up with a smile. ]

Well enough. Not parties I'm used to but, the fire is quite warm.
[ he blinks at him curiously ]
How are you?
bow_of_the_galadhrim: (Smiling prince)

[personal profile] bow_of_the_galadhrim 2012-12-27 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
The warmth is welcome after this month. Let's hope that it might last until Jason is finished tormenting us.

[Taking a sip of his wine, he gave a smile and a nod in answer.]

Well enough if not a bit tired. Haldir and I have spent much of out time hunting and collecting wood for fires. Have you been well?
ringbearer: (◎force from the world)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-28 04:14 am (UTC)(link)

[ frodo confesses he isn't familiar. he takes note of that. ]
In my younger years, I never thought an elf could ever tire.
[ his smile fades slightly. what had this tower done to his fellowship? ]
Well enough. Better, with good food and fire. I'm not so hungry now, though. Perhaps later.
bow_of_the_galadhrim: (Oops)

[personal profile] bow_of_the_galadhrim 2012-12-28 07:02 pm (UTC)(link)
He's the administrator is charge this month. Whenever he's in control, our meals consist of water and nutribars. He's one of the cruelest of them as well.

[He's still deciding what he thinks of Ruana after that chat on the network.]

This place wearies me in heart and soul rather than just in body.

[Killed one of them twice.]

I am glad to hear that. You need only come to find one of us if that changes.

[Sometimes, while he sits by that fire, a colorful bat-like creature swoops down from above towards the fire, sitting down on the ground, while grinning widely and tilting his head(/body?) at Frodo and chirping in greeting.

New person, hiiii! 8>]
ringbearer: (pic#5399722)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-27 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
[ the creature startles him, certainly. frodo's eyes widen and he flinches in surprise before he, well, he tilts his head. it doesn't seem to mean harm, so frodo offers a small, tiny smile. ]

Hello to you. Are you cold as well?
justabignobody: (pic#4756229)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2012-12-27 04:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Highwind squeaks and grins widely. ...Interpret that as you like.

A moment later his owner approaches with a sigh - honestly Highwind, stop flying off like that - blinking when he realizes that his pet-bat isn't alone.]

Ah... sorry. I hope he didn't bother you.
ringbearer: (◎you may rise to find the sun)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-28 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
[ he'll think the creature friendly for now. and when riku approaches frodo only offers a nod of his head, a smile. ]

No, only startled. A friend of yours?
justabignobody: (pic#4756225)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2012-12-30 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, friendly he is. Overly-friendly even, in Riku's opinion at least.]

My pet, I guess. [And through that maybe also kind of a friend, yeah...] His name is Highwind.

[ There is also a certain wizard approaching the place Frodo is sitting at. He is looking a lot more cheerful than he is usually is, albeit still worrying for Frodo.

Oh, and he has a small wrapped package in hand. ]


[ He smiles. ]

I hope you are enjoying yourself.
ringbearer: (◎soon you will see all of)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2012-12-28 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[ frodo doesn't notice the package at first, no he sees gandalf, and he raises him the most sincere smile he's had all day. ]


[ he smiles at him, looking around briefly before fixing him a more wry glance ]

As well as I might. I have seen your fireworks here and there, if you'd like to know!
the_white_rider: screenshot @ lotr: the two tower ([03])

[personal profile] the_white_rider 2013-01-05 04:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh yes. [He laughs lightly.] A shame this place is too small for the most interesting ones.

[ He smiles and nods, before handing Frodo the wrapped package. ]

I believe it to be custom to wish 'Merry Christmas' on this day for most people in the tower.
ringbearer: (◎night too shall be beautiful)

[personal profile] ringbearer 2013-01-15 08:01 am (UTC)(link)
Then they are surely robbed. But better that we have them. They should be safer here, in regards to a certain Brandybuck and Took, if I recall.

[ that surprises him though, and he tilts his head, looking at the package ]

Oh, what's this?
