[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.

Zelda | MORE MUSIC FOR DANCING because I am uncreative

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-24 06:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[Off to the side, a young blonde woman with pointed ears sits, playing her harp as entertainment when the others providing music draw silent. Around her, little spheres of glowing golden light float and twinkle in time to the music - something that might seem a bit familiar to those who were there for that one "friendship party" so many months ago.

Sure, she may not know exactly what this celebration's about, but she knows a morale-booster when she sees one, especially with the presence of good food and warmth, and this time around she's feeling spirited enough to help it along.]
tohko_amano: (happy)

[personal profile] tohko_amano 2012-12-24 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[After eating some food, Tohko wandered around, trying not to bump into anything, and heard someone playing a harp beautifully. While she didn't dance to it, she did draw closer to the sound and closed her eyes, taking in the harp. Zelda is free to speak with her, but Tohko isn't going to bother whoever is playing the instrument. She doesn't want to break their concentration.]
sageprincess: (Momentary peace)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-24 11:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[And likewise, if she sees someone enjoying her music, she won't interrupt them. Instead, she simply smiles, adding a little more embellishment to the melody now that she knows someone is actively listening.]
tohko_amano: (happy)

[personal profile] tohko_amano 2012-12-24 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tohko didn't smile back, as she didn't know that Zelda was even smiling to begin with. However, she did open her eyes and smiled when she noticed that the player was making the music a bit fancier.]
marchwarden: (❧ the night is dark and full of terrors)

Why hello thar~

[personal profile] marchwarden 2012-12-25 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
[It was the lovely melody of this equally lovely harpist that won Haldir's attention this evening. He had never known the princess to be so talented, but then again Haldir didn't really know her at all. Of course he knew of Zelda from others, that one other being Legolas himself, but Haldir honestly doesn't know her in the way of friendship.

Unlike Legolas, the march warden has been hesitant to befriend others in this tower for so many of them seem to come and go as freely as the wind. They either perish in battle and never return or simply vanish without a word.

Keeping his eyes upon the princess, Haldir listened in content as she played her harp. He may not know this tune at all, but that doesn't stop him from appreciating it.]

[Perhaps she and Legolas are fools in that way, always looking for companionship despite knowing how easily those companions can be taken away. Zelda's life has been short in comparison to the elves, but she has learned that lesson very well. And yet...

And yet her dealings with Haldir have been... varied, to say the least. Whether irritated by teasing or quietly obedient during training, she has not yet shown a side to her that is truly indicative of her actual personality. Which is perhaps why she falters slightly in her playing when she notices him staring. For one so silently obsessed with how she is perceived, it's... a bit awkward to be suddenly seen in a way that is so different from how she has been presenting herself.

Still, she does not allow her slight embarrassment to interrupt her playing completely, and she continues on with more fervor than before, as though trying to lose herself in the music.]

THAT WE DO, PRINCESS! That we do...

[personal profile] marchwarden 2012-12-26 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
[ Once the music began to falter, it was then that Haldir realized she had noticed him. A slight smirk settled upon the elf's lips as he regarded the princess from afar. It would seem that Lady Zelda was most uncomfortable around his presence these days. Perhaps the fair maiden honestly didn't know what to think of him at this point, which was quite understandable. Haldir made it a habit to keep his distance from others, but as of late this habit hasn't been as strictly enforced as it should be.

This was why he found him watching the princess so intently now as she played her harp. While a part of him wish to applaud her for her wonderful music, another piece of him was simply content with listening. Haldir wished not to interrupt her, so he decided to stay silent. ]
sageprincess: (Idle minds)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-27 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
[And, uninterrupted, she continues to play. Though she may not be accustomed to playing for an audience, the act of making music itself is not one that is unfamiliar. For many nights in Hyrule, her only company was the sound of her harp.

So perhaps that's why it's so easy for her to shut out the rest of the world when she plays. Once the initial embarrassment has subsided, it's almost like she never noticed she was being watched at all. Only when the song draws to a close does she come back to the real world, placing the golden harp in her lap and leaning back to watch the party.

... Perhaps casually pretending not to notice the warden still staring at her.]

[Riku is leaning back in a seat quite near to where she is playing, for the first time in a while sated and content and after the bout of sickness and the panic-inducing hallucinations somewhat at peace with himself again.

Highwind seems to feel quite similar, pressing into Riku's side while waving his large ears in the rhythm of the tune (or at least trying to), sigh-chirping when Riku starts to pet his fur absently, eye color changing from bright yellow to green.]
sageprincess: (Sun's Song)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-26 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Seeing Riku so relaxed for once is definitely nice, to say the least. As useful as his abilities are for intelligence gathering, he's still just a boy no older than herself. And, if anything, Zelda believes youth is something the young should be allowed to enjoy.

She smiles at him while she plays, though there's a slight jump when she sees his little pet. Is... that a keese? No, it's far too colorful and friendly.]

Ah - you seem content.

[What in the world...?]
justabignobody: (pic#4682840)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2012-12-30 02:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, as much as he might consider it necessary at times... even Riku can't keep going All Work, Not Play all the time. Not to mention that it's kind of been a while since the last party of this kind, hasn't it? These things always have to be enjoyed in the tower.

He opens his eyes when he notices that jump, turning a frown down at Highwind - he better not have disturbed the princess. :| (Highwind, meanwhile other unaware that he is being suspected of anything, just keeps grinning at everyone and rubs against Riku's hand.)

Then he sits up and turns to Zelda, a slight smile on his lips.]

Hard to be anything but with this atmosphere.
sageprincess: (Agreeable natures)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-01-04 05:39 am (UTC)(link)
It is a pleasant change from the norm lately.

[Well, the little winged creature seems passive enough, and Riku's not alarmed, so... she'll still spare it a glance or two as they talk, but she relaxes.]

It almost does not feel real, in a way.

[She knows such breaks in the oppressive atmosphere have to be taken advantage of, and she's no stranger to the kinds of parties the residents of the Tower throw, but still... perhaps being in this place for nearly a year is starting to wear on her...]
justabignobody: (♘ Let me take a look at this)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2013-01-13 08:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah... I guess we'll just have to enjoy for it as long as it lasts.

[Riku has been in the tower for just a little longer than that now and he's feeling it too... and it's strange to think that's been that long, and funny because he could have sworn it was longer than 'just a year'.

He takes note of the glances she had shot Highwind though... this calls for an introduction, doesn't it?]

You haven't met Highwind yet, right? He is my pet of sorts.
sageprincess: (Discerning intentions)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-01-13 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
"Highwind"...? No, I cannot say I have.

[Now that the conversation has shifted, she feels no guilt in directing her attention to the strange winged creature following Riku around. It certainly seems friendly, but... she can't help being just a bit unsure about it.]

... What precisely is he, if I may ask?
justabignobody: (pic#4756212)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2013-01-27 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Riku grins lightly before lifting his hand, letting Highwind rise up into the air and flutter towards Zelda, the bat's grin wide - another new person to greet, hiiiii 8DDD]

He's a Dream Eater from my home universe. [He shifts in his seat, leaning forward to pat Highwind on his head.] He was made from the fragments of dreams and feeds on Nightmares.

[Handy little pet, isn't he?]
sageprincess: (Heavenly lights)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-01-27 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
A dream eater...

[She repeats quietly, leaning back slightly as the pet comes nearer. After a moment's observation, however, she lifts a hand, lightly grazing the top of his head with her fingertips. He's... surprisingly soft for a creature that resembles a Keese.]

... For one who feeds on nightmares, he is certainly a cheerful little thing.
justabignobody: (♘ So you see my true self)

[personal profile] justabignobody 2013-02-01 07:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[Highwind tweets and presses back against her hand.]

Definitely. Maybe it's why he's so affection-needy.

[Not that Riku really minds. ...Anymore at least.]

[ When she's not distracted by the orbs floating around, Sayaka watches the woman playing the harp so suavely. The futher mood booster was more than needed for everyone, and the idol herself, even after she performed earlier for the crowd. She won't disturb until the very end, when she'll clap her hands heartily. ]

Bravo! You play so well, miss.
sageprincess: (Sun's Song)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-27 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
[At the sound of applause, Zelda bows her head in gratitude with a smile. Her main purpose for playing might be to lift the spirits of others, but it's hard not to feel at least a little warmed by such a cheerful ovation.]

Years of practice are to thank. I am glad to see my playing is appreciated, especially by a fellow musician.

[Sayaka's style of music might not be one Zelda's terribly familiar with, but hey, she can recognize talent and enthusiasm!]
idolizer: (would you mind if I hurt you?)

[personal profile] idolizer 2012-12-27 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
I could say you have more experience than me on that side. I'm not as good with instruments as I am with my voice.

[ She can sing and dance divinely, but don't ask her to play a guitar or a piano. She's mediocre at worst. ]
sageprincess: (Radiant elegance)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-28 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
But one's voice is an instrument - and one of the most flexible of all, at that. You have a talent to be admired.

[On the opposite end of the spectrum, Zelda will only sing lullabies to close friends as they go to sleep, and the one who can get her to dance must be blessed, indeed.]
idolizer: (would you mind if I killed you?)

[personal profile] idolizer 2012-12-29 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
You have a good point. I can't deny that at least I'm pretty good with my voice.

[ Says the top idol of all Japan... ]

How long have you been playing the harp?
sageprincess: (Curious regard)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-12-29 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, around seven years consistently. My teachers would try to get me to practice more when I was a child, but I was too young to take it seriously.

[Look at her detach herself from the situation! Excellent at compartmentalizing, this one.]

And you?
idolizer: (i'll face myself)

[personal profile] idolizer 2012-12-30 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
Around that time, too. I decided to start singing when I was little, and then I became an idol in later years. It paid off, eventually.
sageprincess: (Agreeable natures)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2013-01-04 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
Oh? How so? I am afraid music has always been more of a hobby than a profession in my case.
