❝friendship affirmation party❞

Characters: LOTS OF PEOPLE just look at the tags, gosh. Start your own threads, hop into others, and generally be free with your tagging decisions.
Setting: Floor 4, the one with the big glass windows and lots of couches.
Format: Action tags!
Summary: Clearly what the tower needs right now is a party, and Willow and Aradia have thrown one.
Warnings: Nada. Good clean fun.

[It's never exactly a clear day around this floor of the tower, but the billowing clouds outside the floor-to-ceiling glass windows are maybe a bit lighter and fluffier. There's a positive atmosphere spread across the whole level, mostly from the colorful lights sprinkled here and there, magical in nature and of all different colors. They glow like small fairies.

But the biggest pieces in the room are the couches and armchairs, strategically laid out in different circles, with tables in the center. Snacks and drinks stolen from the kitchen are on the tables, so nothing too spectacular-- but there are several batches of baked goods that Willow's made, cookies and brownies and so on. There's also some board games and decks of cards placed here and there, the obvious Earth ones included and some not so obvious other ones that she hadn't recognized.

Anyone who wants to is welcome to show up, whether invited or not, whether they know Willow or Aradia or not. Fun is going to be had, darn it. However, everyone on the floor, just for today, is privy to an anti-violence ward that will prevent any motions toward violence from completing. A punch won't land, psychic powers mysteriously won't do anything if they try to cause harm, and so on. As the tower is not fond of being affected in any way, this is an effect the characters have put on them from crossing the threshold from the stairwell, and it will be automatically removed when they leave. It is not noticeable unless they try something or are particularly sensitive to magic.

It also won't last forever, so if you really want to get into a fight, do it while the party's winding down. Willow's wards are good but they aren't up to altering-the-tower-without-major-consequences level, and she's made them mild enough to wear off on their own after several hours.

You're really here to have fun, though, right? You knew where to go because of the network post.]
sageprincess: (Pleasant relaxation)

[Blond, blue-eyed protag material acting derpy? Zelda's radar is going off. LINK, WHAT ARE YOU DOING--

Oh. False alarm.]

They are not going to disappear any time soon. No need to rush.

[Still, she can't help a bit of light-hearted teasing. It's the first time she's felt up to it in days, after all.]
forceless: (this is my stupid alter ego)

[Silly Zelda, this one lacks a cool green hat.

Ven turned away from the table at bit at the voice and-- oh geez, she was pretty and pretty fancy looking. He straightened up and gave a sheepish laugh, lowering the next tasty treat away from biting radius.]

It's just been awhile since I've seen stuff this good all together and everything...!
sageprincess: (Bittersweet farewells)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-04 01:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Alas, she still is unaware of why she gets this reaction. Must have to do with the crossdressing. Still, she smiles in return, amused.]

Understandable, given the lack of variety at the cafeteria this month.

[And then she reaches out, grabbing a small treat for herself.]

But there is something to be said for savoring, hm?
forceless: (Derp Family)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-04 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
I guess so. Maybe I just always though of it like ice cream; if you don't eat it fast enough, it'll melt!

[And he took a contemplative bite out of another cookie.]
sageprincess: (Radiant elegance)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-04 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
Eat too quickly, though, and it will give you a headache.

[Nom. Munchmunchmunchswallow.]

Balance is key.
forceless: (i wasnt sleeping shut up)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-04 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
[Ven couldn't help a half exasperated laugh at that nugget of wisdom. Though at least he's listening, and taking his bites and chewing slowly like a sane person.]

I guess that's true. Although I think a balance between the distribution of chocolate chips is equally important.
sageprincess: (Sun's Song)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-04 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
[She will count that as a victory!]

Oh, of course. That is something we can agree on.

[She smiles, bowing her head slightly in greeting.]

I am Zelda, Princess of Hyrule. It is a pleasure to meet you, sir...?
forceless: (:>)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-04 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh snap she actually was a Princess?!]

Oh, my name's Ventus! Uh, but you can call me Ven if you want.

sageprincess: (Heavenly lights)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-04 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)

If you prefer it, Ven it shall be.
forceless: (look man i'm about to hook you up with f)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-04 10:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[HOW DOES HE HANDLE THIS but nah, he's smiling.]

So, what's Hyrule like? That's your world, right?
sageprincess: (Momentary peace)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-04 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
It is indeed. How to describe it in so many words, though...

[She takes a moment, going quiet as she thinks.]

It is... diverse. There are five races that dwell within its boundaries, each with their own cultures and natural gifts. And likewise, the landscape varies from grand mountains to shining lakes and rivers to vast forests.

Honestly, I do not believe my words could do it justice.
forceless: (whazzat)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-05 12:59 am (UTC)(link)
[Small words they were, Ven's already pretty enthralled.]

Oh wow. My home doesn't have any kind of forests or big lakes that I've ever been to...!
sageprincess: (Spaces between)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-05 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
Does it not? I wish I could show you Hyrule, then. Lake Hylia is truly beautiful in the morning.

The forests are sacred, though, and only a few are allowed entry. If you ever see a young man wearing a green tunic and hat, with blond hair parted down the center, you should ask him about it. He lived there, and I am certain he would be happy to tell you a story or two.
forceless: (chill man I gotta think for a bit)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-05 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
[He kind of got lost a minute imaging a GIANT lake in the middle of the Land of Departure like the little ones that he had back home in the morning-- but he's paying attention, really!]

Oh! I think I've seen him before. He's my roommate.
sageprincess: (Sun's Song)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-05 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[No, Ven, that's the wrong one--]

Is he now? You have been given a good person to share a room with, then. He may seem quiet, but he is quite warm-hearted in actuality.
forceless: (Derp Family)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-06 12:15 am (UTC)(link)
[How is he supposed to know there's like five million different ones!]

I haven't talked to him much, but he seems pretty cool! Although when I first met him, he was really badly injured from some fight. [Idle cookie munch.]
sageprincess: (Soft melodies)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-06 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
[... Ven you are not one to talk about doubles, okay.]

Was he? ... Perhaps that was before I arrived. Until a few days ago, he was in perfect health as far as I could tell.

[Or perhaps this could all be a monumental misunderstanding. Either or.]
forceless: (this is my stupid alter ego)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-07 03:42 am (UTC)(link)

I helped as best as I could. I'm not really sure what happened, to be honest. [He gave a sheepish laugh and rubbed the back of his head.]

But I'm glad he's better at least. [...Or. Wait.] Or, did something happen a few days ago...?
sageprincess: (Quiet meditations)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-07 04:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[There's more than a little tenseness to her jaw, but she tries remaining nonchalant.]

He was attacked by someone who did not understand the nature of alternate worlds in this place. He has been recovering in the infirmary since then.
forceless: (errrrr wait)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-08 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh geez. [Yeeaaah, he knew how awkward that could get.]

If there's anything I can do, let me know! I don't think my magic's good enough to cure big injuries, but it could probably relieve the pain at least.
sageprincess: (Hidden loneliness)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-08 07:03 pm (UTC)(link)
[She smiles a bit, grateful, but it's still a little sad.]

Thank you for the offer, though I do not believe it is necessary at this point. I found a young woman named Aqua shortly after the incident, and she managed to heal most of his wounds.
forceless: (i gots a keychain)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-09 09:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, Aqua! [Zelda's smile may have been sadder, but Ven's face grew much brighter.]

She's my friend from my world. I'm glad she could help you! She's much better than me at that kind of stuff.
sageprincess: (Heavenly lights)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-09 11:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, now that they're getting off that particular topic, she lightens up a bit.]

Is she? You have a very noble friend, then. Her magic is quite different from my own, from what I saw, but all the same, I am extraordinarily grateful she was willing to utilize it in aiding a stranger.
forceless: (look man i'm about to hook you up with f)

[personal profile] forceless 2012-04-11 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
You can count on her for anything, trust me! [Aw look he's beaming all proudly and stuff.]

What kind of magic can you do? [Must learn about all the worlds!!]
sageprincess: (Radiant elegance)

[personal profile] sageprincess 2012-04-11 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)
I shall.

[Aqua's already fairly awesome in her books, so she has no trouble taking Ven at his word. That said...]

Most of the magic I am currently versed in is decidedly combat based, so I do not think it would be appropriate to demonstrate here. But I can do this...

[She lifts her hand, fingers closed in a loose fist just as Willow had shown her earlier. Then, she opens them, a spark of golden light appearing in her palm and growing until it's a few inches around. It shines brightly in her hand, and if it wasn't obvious that she's pretty much drenched in Light, well. It should be now.]
