Lets do this right this time...

At this point Grief remembered something he's been working on and off for the last year or two. And now... It was time to unleash it on the public at large.

Standing up on the stage, which should be empty by now I hope, he taps the mike and starts talking to the crowd.

"Testing. Testing. Cough. Good evening folks! I'm Grief and if you let me sing, you'll be grieving as well." Weak laugh, some coughs and sounds of crickets from earth.

"Anyway... I'd also like to do a little number for the folks out there. Its half country and half rap. I call it crap!" Rim shot. Still no laughter.

"Tough crowd. Sigh. Time to bring out the big guns."

"U C D E D B D Ducks?"

Dave turns towards the stage as he hears Grief on the stage. He turns towards said stage, a blank expression on his face at Grief's sense of humor, or rather, lack thereof.
Looking at the stage, he fails to notice Varam go flying by behind him.

    quote:"The question is: Will she get a Zimre ring, or a collection of from-the-heart gifts over a few weeks and then an expensive hunk of jewelry?" Dataran smiles, hintingly.

Alliana looked up at him questioningly for a moment, then back at Varam who managed to literally throw himself away from Vix. She didn't bother to suppress her giggle and tugged Dataran over towards Spooky and Dave. "Come on, let's go say hi!" she chirped. "I want them to see you actually looking GOOD for a change."

Spooky moves up behind David and touches his arm, "Is... is everything okay David?" she asks.

Sammantha sees Varam make a grab for the stick, Vixara letting go, and -

Sammantha sees Grief's act, and gives the first two jokes a couple giggles. At least he trie.s

Dave turns back towards Spooky and takes her hand in his. "Oh, yes. I'm just trying to figure out what that last line was supposed to mean."
He then notices the approaching couple.
"Mister Banclave, Miss T'sari. Good evening, and happy Resolutions Day to the both of you."
  Posted by Varam Rathien (Member # 1189) on 12-04-2001 09:57 PM:
 
Varam gets up and dusts himself off. he then walks over and says to David.

"If you need me, I'll be seeing what that whitish stuff in the third bowl is."

He then gets on Holocaust, makes a stop by the tree, opens a box on top of it, and puts the contents (presents) under the tree. He then rides Holocaust to the drink table, gets off, and pours some eggnog in a glass.

Alliana rolled her eyes and sighed. "David, how many times have I told you not to talk to me like I'm a dignitary? Just call me 'Alliana' or 'Allie'." She smiled at him and Spooky knowingly. "But Happy Resolutions Day to the both of you, too."

"So, I trust you two have settled the little misunderstanding earlier?" she laughs, not unkindly, tapping just below her throat to indicate the Zimre that Spooky had tucked under her dress.

Dataran blinks, expecting a slightly more vicious reaction out of Alliana; and then he chuckles.

"Good evening all," and then, slightly suggesting, but not that much so, "You know, David, you are amazingly lucky. You have a lady who does not bite you at every offence, and you will eventually get to take your pick of marriage rituals."
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-04-2001 11:27 PM:
 
Alliana looks up at Dataran, feigning shock and disbelief. "I don't bite you on EVERY occasion! Only when you're being stupid!"

She turns and winks at Spooky. "You should try it sometime. It's a great way to keep 'em in line! " she says with a glance to David and a smile to let them know she was joking.

"Yeah, took a little bit of explaining. Its all settled, now. Just probably going to have to be explaining to everyone over the next few days."

With a chuckle of his own, Dave quirks an eyebrow at Dataran. You say that like its a bad thing. As for the choice of rituals, well, that's a hurdle we'll jump when we come to it."

    quote:Originally posted by Alliana T'sari:

"So then that would be every time, yes?"

Spooky nods, "Yeah. Not to say that it might not happen for real some day, just not today." she then smiles thoughtfully, "Today, my boyfriend just bought me a very pretty and very expensive piece of jewelry." she says, taking David's hand into her paw.
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-04-2001 11:50 PM:
 
Dataran smirks at David's reply.

"Oh that is a good thing, really. Do you know what I have to do?"

Alliana cocks an eyebrow at Dave, as if debating something, then smiles in a way so evil that only a vixen could pull it off.

"Nah, just most of the time."

She reaches up and swats his chest ruff lightly. "See, he gets all this fur whenever it gets cold for a while, and I can hardly bite through all of it! It acts like padding, so I have to settle for tackling him now, and only bite him on special occasions." She said, slipping behind him and jumping up on his back to nip at one of his ears.

"GOTCHA!" she giggled, wrapping her arms around his neck and shoulders while she hung from his back.

Alliana glared at him fiercely and fastened her jaws around his neck. "Ohn yuh arr ay uh errd!!"* she mumbled around the white fur pelt filling her mouth.

(*Don't you dare say a word!)

Dave shudders in mock fear at the sight of the all-powerful evil vixen grin. "You know I'm just messin around."

Dave gives Spooky's paw a quick squeeze. "As do the two of you."

Dave can't help but break out in laughter at seeing this display.

Dataran reaches up and very gently pulls her off his neck, being careful to not get his fingers between her teeth. Last time he did that, he couldn't write for a week.

Unfortunately, Dataran is not a dentist, and cannot understand someone who's mouth is full of fluffy white stuff.

Once free, he takes a few breaths experimantally and continues, "Did you know, David, that Fox males must start courting at the beginning of the month, and I mean the old Fox calendar's months here, and continue to lavish gifts on their chosen for 15 days? We have to get the parent's approval to court first as well."
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-05-2001 12:37 AM:
 
Alliana looks at him, a little puzzled, then starts giggling. "Ohhhh...I thought you were gonna tell him what you do to get bit half the time!" She laughs, resting her head against Dataran's neck for a moment more, before dropping neatly back to the ground.

"You see, Dataran has a tendency to really earn his punishments sometimes, like bursting into the right room at the wrong time." The black tips on her ears were actually starting to gain a reddish hue from the blush underneath as she stepped around beside him.

"Eh, it can't be all that bad as what happened to me. I don't know if you were here when it happened, but this one night, these Technomage Mice broke into my room to do horrible, unspeakable things to me. Well, I escaped into the ductwork and…"
He then notices Alliana's sudden blushing.
"Ohhhhhhhh…"
  Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-05-2001 01:04 AM:
 
Unfortunately for those who wished to see a pink fox, Dataran's fur is much too thick for anybody to see him blush.
  Posted by Chrome (Member # 619) on 12-05-2001 02:40 AM:
 
Chrome, raised in the semi-isolation of an elite foxes home, looks on the conversation; understanding maybe half of it...
  Posted by AngelFish (Member # 1521) on 12-05-2001 05:53 AM:
 
Back in Medical, Angel looks at the stack of inventory forms and the rubber stamp.

-Ummm, Oookay...-

"Thank you, Owen!"

A short flurry of stamping later, she is on her way back to the party.
 
Posted by Lenisa (Member # 1222) on 12-05-2001 03:53 PM:
 
The Scythetail giggles as she watches everyone being themselves in spades. The ambience of good feelings seems infectious, as if nothing could go wrong at this very moment. "So what do you say, Mrs. Nedi? Would it be all right if I took Teela for a ride? In case my reputation has preceded me, don't worry, I'll keep it to a safe speed."
  Posted by Solan (Member # 1213) on 12-05-2001 04:03 PM:
 
The mouse like instructor enters the room with a large package, still wearing that same style jump suit that she’s appeared in through most of the academy days. (Yes folks. she has a lot of them ^.^). The package, wrapped in plain brown paper, she carries under her arm. She gives a few nods to those she knows and a few she doesn’t as the instructor makes her way to the tree.

Placing this strange package under it, the single tag reads. “To the Academy.”

With ears folded back to dampen the noise, even through the noise filters, she quietly leaves the party.
 
Posted by AngelFish (Member # 1521) on 12-05-2001 05:47 PM:
 
Angel returns to the room and walks over to give Lenisa a quick hug. (She's the only other person there with blue scaly skin, you know.)

"Oh, good, you've met Graum's family!"

    He then notices Alliana's sudden blushing.
    "Ohhhhhhhh…"

Spooky covers her muzzle with a paw and giggles, "What I wouldn't give to have seen that. I did see him in the hall aft... oh dear..." she says before giggling some more, the insides of her large ears turning pinkish.

Now it is David's turn to turn a bit pinkish. "Love, I don't think there's anybody who had met me those first few days, who didn't see me in the hall afterwards."
He turns back towards Alliana. "At least you've got fur. "
  Posted by Owen (Member # 1661) on 12-05-2001 07:33 PM:
 
Shortly after the quiet instructure leaves the scean the doors open once more on the most amusing sight posible. Led by a matched pair of gigling white cubs Owen enters. His ebon scales and feathers are a washed in light from a set of christmas lights strung along his body. Strands wrap his torso and run along his arms, legs, wing edges and spine covering the major bone structures. The little ones quickly take the hover sled and start placing gifts under the tree.

Dataran is busy stiffling a snicker at this. Is it for the memory of things past, or something more sinister?
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-05-2001 08:42 PM:
 
Alliana punches Dataran in the arm lightly, not sure why he's snickering, but knowing that it can't be good.

    quote:Originally posted by David:

"Heh.. yeah, but it doesn't do any good if you're still soaking wet." she says, starting to laugh a little at the memory.

"Ah, even with all his little quirks, I still love the big guy." Alliana smiles up at Dataran, wrapping both arms around him from the side. "But he needs to get trimmed, badly." she said, ruffling the fur on his chest without breaking the hug. "Maybe I'll take you to the ED-3... I hear they're good with clippers!"

"Hey, you know thay hate me," Dataran returns, "Besides, I'm one of the few Foxes around who's known for massive shedding."

"Aw, don't take it personal, Dats." she chuckled. "They hate EVERYBODY! I remember one time when one of them decided to give me a hard time while I was running the 'Jack, so I just picked her up and dumped her outside the bay."

She can't help but start laughing when she remembers this. "Oh by Dios, it was beautiful, the look on her face!"

Tim wander over to Dave and Spooky. "Tha rumer mills goin strong. I just heard that you wern't gettin married. If thats true, I apologies. Just thought I over heard Spooky mention somethin bout a proposal ta Lenisa. I must'a jumped to conclusions again."
  Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-05-2001 09:00 PM:
 
Dataran whispers in an aside to Alliana, "What's this about?"
  Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-05-2001 09:20 PM:
 
"Oh, David gave Spooky a Zimre, without realizing what it meant." she whispered back. "Lenisa and Tim saw it, and Tim jumped to conclusions and started celebrating."
  Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-05-2001 09:22 PM:
 
"Ah," Dataran utters, fidgeting with the case in his pocket.

Still on stage Grief plops his head into his hands and whispers "Come on people... It's a simple riddle."

Then a thought struck him and he asked off stage "R D E D B D Ducks alright?"
 
Posted by Owen (Member # 1661) on 12-05-2001 09:39 PM:
 
The iluminated lizard turns just in time to see a set of waterfoul walk by.
For a brief moment he studies them intently and shouts to the stage
"O S M E D B D Ducks R O K"
  Posted by Paddock (Member # 1434) on 12-05-2001 09:40 PM:
 
Paddock pushed off from his spot on the wall and made for the stage, still carrying Angel's bag from the habitat and balancing Tim's hat on his head.

"All right, Grief. Enough is enough!" he said loudly, climbing up on stage.

"If you're going down in flames, I may as well go with ya!"
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-05-2001 09:48 PM:
 
"Excuse us, everyone, but the events on the stage at this moment are starting to hurt my brain," Dataran says politely, but somewhat insensitively.

"C'mon, Alliana, we might be able to put those two out of their misery," he says far less sensitively as he slips off to the food area to find the right ingredients for his bit.
 
Posted by Gryphon_2 (Member # 1372) on 12-05-2001 09:54 PM:
 
"GET THEM!" Grief yelled in a panic "That's tonights special award dinner!!"

He leapt off the stage and landed heavily. Withdrawing his stungun he shouted at Owen "WHICH WAY DID THEY GO!?"

To himself he said "Man Darius is going to kill me. How'd I let a hard days catch get away from me..."

Then yelling hard at Owen "DON'T YOU DARE MAKE A PET OF THESE THINGS! I already got something for you under the tree."
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-05-2001 10:01 PM:
 
Alliana taps his arm as Grief hauls it off-stage, chasing some ducks.

"I think the act just committed hari-kari, sweets." she laughed, while Paddock looked at Grief with a very confused expression.
 
Posted by Owen (Member # 1661) on 12-05-2001 10:04 PM:
 
Head swiveling around first to Grief and then to the dashing ducks, Owen points with the lights strung about him all sudenly strobeing in sequence flickering on and off with the band of on lights moving from the tip of his tail down to his out stretched arm to add emphesis.

"After the falcon almost ate all the others I'm staying away from birdies quite thank you"
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-05-2001 10:05 PM:
 
Dataran saw this.

Not many things can get this kind of a reaction out of him, but this did.

"That Falcon is completely insane�" he said, shaking his head.

Spooky grins broadly to Tim, "Hey, it's quite alright. When we do get married, you'll be the first to know." ^_^

Grief is suddenly cut off my a hissing lynx. Before anyone can respond, she runs over to, and matches pace with the waterfowl (Ducks?), and began flanking manuvers to keep everyone away from the feathery...birds.

Fangs could only shake his head. "What is with that gel and Ducks?"
 
Posted by Sammantha Powers (Member # 1601) on 12-05-2001 10:27 PM:
 
Sammantha listens to the conversation, and giggles when she sees Alliana jump on Dataran and try to nip him.

Sammantha giggles some more, then has an idea, pulls her datapad from her purse, and starts accesses something. At one point, she's using her "pen" on the pad.

    quote:Originally posted by Alliana T'sari:
    "Maybe I'll take you to the ED-3... I hear they're good with clippers!"


"Be careful. I heard they've been up to more than just that. Not that they've been very good at it for a while."

She also sees Owen show up decked up in Christmas lights and Darius' necies, and smiles, thinking it's really cute.

Sammantha then turns to Spooky, "About what you said earlier, about wanting to see Dave in the hall afterwards?" She then grins wickedly in a manner rivaling the vixens, "Well, my cousin's not the only one with a camera. Get a load of what one of the girls gave me!" She hands her datapad over to Spooky.

And on the viewscreen visible only to Spooky ...

no pic, a note ...

Let's have a little fun with David. Don't let him see this. Make him think there really is a picture of him out there. ; )

OOC - if Sam's little act of evil is too much, someone tell me and I'll edit the post

Vix tries to get a look at the pad, but gives up and comments to Sam, "You know, not many are trusted any pieces of Spike's ameture espionage picture collection," she pauses, "Well, not anymore that is. 'Zat a picture of him in the middle of the ductwork incident? I heard Spike had his camera with him at that meeting, and it was� interesting� to escort him back to his room."

"What act?! I was doing a general announcement! The winner of the most appropriate karaoke song gets a live bird to eat as he or she sees fit." He shouts at everyone else.

"The problem is that these things are smarter than everybody realizes. The only way we can fool them is to use code."

At this point the ducks are flapping around, being chased by a lynx running underfoot. Pointing away from the cat, he kneeled and drew aim on another duck that was now running in a straight line. The moment he drew a bead on the thing, it ducked and zigged zagged into the crowd.

"Damn! They already learned how to get under cover?! It took me a year to learn how to dodge bullets and these things learned my attack pattern in one hour?!"

In a loud voice Grief said nice and calmly.

"Now then. Nobody panic. This will not turn out like the nalokat scenario last year. Rest assured thaaaargh!!" As a camoflagued duck took him out at the knees in a sneak attack. The small tazer hit the floor and seemingly, by accident, was propelled across the floor. Where it ended up, no one knows...

"Oh dear... It's begun." Grief said sprawled on the floor.

Dataran's ears fold back as he draws Alliana in front of him and holds her. His right ear starts twitching the "What next?" twitch* as he buries his face in Alliana's hair, grateful for the familiar scent.

A low growling can be heard as a duck lands on his head for a second, and ends when it takes off.

His right ear repeats the "What Next?" twitch code.

*Up, right, left, center, left, down, up, center, up, STRAIGHT BACK.

Alliana reaches behind her and lays one hand on the back of Dataran's neck, the other she rests on his arms around her midsection.

"You all right?" she asks quietly, tilting her head back.

Muffled by her hair, "I'l be alright, this is just not how I'd imagined this night would be like."
  Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-06-2001 02:34 AM:
 
Alliana smiled happily. "Mmmm...well, I think it's pretty pleasant at the moment." she replied, still keeping her low tone. "I can definitely think of worse ways to spend an evening." She emphasised this by flicking her ears back against his face gently.

"Besides, when was the last time an entire night's plans went perfectly?"
 
Posted by Chrome (Member # 619) on 12-06-2001 02:35 AM:
 
Chrome looks around the room, frowning slightly, then wanders over to the food. He stands very still until a duck goes by, then snatches it out of the air and stuffs it into his empty bag. As he carefully fills a plate, the mutters "I just don't remember anything in the traditions about ducks!"

With the plate in one had, he walks by Grief, handing him the bag with the squawking duck inside, then finds a place near the tree to sit.

Aurla catches his eye, looking eagerly from him to the scattered ducks.

"I don't know, Aurla - you probably aren't supposed to chase them..."

...and she's off, chasing after a duck that's almost her size.

"Oh, squid."
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-06-2001 02:43 AM:
 
"Hmmmph," he vocalizes gently, smiling when she bats him, "I just would rather not look back on this night and laugh years from now."

He picks his head up and watches Aurla chase a Duck.

"Could be worse, I guess. Someone could have brought a real Terran skunk."
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-06-2001 02:53 AM:
 
"A skunk? Oh Dios, that would be a death sentence for someone!" she laughed, tipping her head all the way back to rest on Dataran's chest, eyes closed. "Hey Dataran, can you do me a favor?" she asks, smiling in her trademark Scheming Vixen Smile.

(OOC: The "Scheming Vixen Smile" is not quite an Evil Vixen Grin. It's a couple levels under it, and it's not always a bad thing. It just means you're going to get something that you don't expect. )
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-06-2001 02:59 AM:
 
"You know, that's like asking me if I'm busy tonight. It depends on what the favor is," Dataran says, using the phrase that just about everyone at the academy who's ever asked him for a favor got.

Still, the shift in how he's holding her indicates that there are very few things that could be considered gifts she wanted that he wouldn't risk life and limb to get her right now.
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-06-2001 03:14 AM:
 
Alliana smiles a little wider, still not opening her eyes. "There is one thing that I would love to see more than anything in this universe right now..." she begins, and slides both hands to either side of Dataran's head.

She opens her eyes and matches his gaze. "...and that would be to see you have fun and enjoy yourself tonight." she finished, breaking into a full-blown Evil Vixen Grin.

"Think you can handle that, ya big pillow?"
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-06-2001 03:28 AM:
 
"I think I can arrange that," Dataran says offhandedly, looking out into space and muttering like he does when counting how many signatures a project will need.

Then he kisses her, quickly and out of the blue.

He holds his head up, and shouts out to Paddock, "Minstrel, could we get some music to dance and chase ducks to?"
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-06-2001 04:10 AM:
 
Alliana smiled contentedly, returning the kiss. "Good." she murmured, leaning back against him.

When Dataran shouts for the dancing/duck-chasing music, she can't help but laugh out loud. "I don't think that there's a song written that you can do both of those to, love."
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-06-2001 04:21 AM:
 
"Well, I am planning on monopolizing you for this evening, but I think there are others looking for ducks," he explains gesturing to the antics of Grief, Aurla, and the lynx.
  Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-06-2001 04:35 AM:
 
"Monopolizing me?" she asked, starting to giggle a little. "For some strange reason, I like the sound of that..."

She turned towards the shark, who by now was picking up his acoustic from behind the stage and tuning it quickly. "Hey, Jaws!!" she yelled. "Play that 'Driving' song you were strummin' in the Docking bays last time, would you?"
 
Posted by AngelFish (Member # 1521) on 12-06-2001 06:42 AM:
 
Angel steps on stage next to Paddock and retrieves her bag. Pulling out a small bandage shear, she snips a slit in the top of the hat so a portion of Paddock's cranial fin can poke through. She then replaces it on his head, and steps back to consider the result.

"Well, it's better... You're still going to stand out a bit at the rodeo, though."

She moves over to the tree, pulling a few packages from the bag to place under it.

Graum finally catches up with Teela and Aidy. "So, little girl, did you meet the talking sythetail yet?"

Aidy turns sour. "Graum, one of the students told us not to bother her."

Graum smiles, "Oh fireflies. Lenisa's one of the friendliest people on the planet. She'd love meeting Teela."

Strands wrap his torso and run along his arms, legs, wing edges and spine covering the major bone structures. The little ones quickly take the hover sled and start placing gifts under the tree.

"Aw shoot, he went and outdid me! Not only is he shinier, but he's already got two kids with him," she mock-pouts. About then, ducky mayhem ensues and Angel gets seperated from Lenisa in the feathered chaos. For her part, the Scythetail snags yet another of the passing ducks with relative ease. "Hey Grief!

She takes off at a trot that's a far more high stepping than ground-eating pace, but it shows off her shiney cuffs rather well. She makes a pass by the stage giving a wave and calling out, "Hey Paddock! What's next?"

Paddock strummed on his guitar experimentally for a moment, twisted one of the knobs, and strummed again.

Nodding his thanks to Angel for the hat's modification, he shifted it so the brim overshadowed his eyes, then tossed a quick half-salute to Dataran and Alliana.

"All right, mon." he said to himself, pulling up a stool and adjusting the microphone stand. "Jest play it like ya know it be played."

Clearing his throat, Paddock settled on the bench and pulled the mic stand up to him.

"Okay, people. Dis be de last time I'm gettin' up here, wasting ya time, so I'm gonna try ta play someting good." he smiled jokingly. "I jest gotta request for a song called 'Drive' by a band called 'Incubus' back home on Terra. Some of ya may already know it, and if ya do, feel free ta come up here and help me sing it!"

As the last of the ducks he seen were packed away by a few helping hands, Grief paused for a second. While the still twitching bag wriggled away in his hands.

"What's wrong?" Someone finally asked.

"I felt a great disturbance in the timeline. As if a great many voices suddenly started shouting at misdeeds being done. There was a rising tension and sparks of violence. Finally, silence and quiet murmurs of thanks. As if the hand of the powers that be swept down and crushed the problem."

"In english..."

"I felt a plot line go poof. Mainly because my actions reverbed a great echo of that past tragedy."

Looking up at Paddock on the stage doing another song, Grief muttered "Crap. Have to do my announcement later.

At about the same time as Deu-, er, Alliana, the Scythetail spots the simply wrapped brown package by the tree. "Hey little one," she addresses Teela, "I'm going to take a swing past the tree and check out the presents." Of course, she takes the scenic route around the edge of the cafeteria - that avoids crossing the busy dance floor after all.

When she reaches the tree, another present catches her attention first - this one addressed to her, so she picks it up and opens it. Inside is an interesting piece of shiney gold material and a set of instructions. When she realizes what its for, she giggles and calls out, "Would someone like to help me with this?" A look at the instructions shows that the shiney stip is meant to be wrapped around a tail in a candy cane fashion.

[OOC: this posts asumes that its normal eggnog and so has a SMALL amount of rum in it]

His color returning Owen notices his young charges walking up with a cup of white liquid. "well what do you have there" he asks takeing the glass and sniffing the contnets. "we're not sure Mr. ~insert David's last name~ said it was called eggnog, we shared a glass before its good yea he seems to like it" this last said pointing at Varam.

Finishing the cup himself Owen tells them not to have any more didn't they notice that it smelled odd? They of course agree and stick to punch for the rest of the evening. Realizing how much Varam has imbibed Owen walks over and metions descreatly that there is a small amount of alcahol so he should be carefull lest he get drunk

Spooky was light on her feet. Must come from the wings. Tim feels free to try out some basic moves. And spin out, and spin back, and twirl her around. Dip and up. Seeing Dave and Sammantha coming in, he looks back at Spooky. Quietly he says "That's cute, I think Dave wants ta keep an eye on us. Ever play follow tha leader?"

Then just loud enough for Dave to hear he tells Spooky, "Hey Spooky, look over there. You'll love it." And starts dance/leading Spooky behind another group of dancers just out of Dave's sight.

Dave leads Sammantha out onto the floor in a simple, friendly dance.
During the dance, he tried making friendlt talk. "So, how have you liked your first few months here?"
Then he hears Tim's comment.
Well, I'm sure that the two of them will be alright.
Although it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on them.
He then discreetly begins danging across the floor in the direction Tim and Spooky went.

Spooky snickers, "You're evil, Tim. Lets do it." she says, giggling as Tim leads her out of Dave's field of vision, looking over her shoulder occasionally to see if she can get a glimpse of Dave.

Upon hearing the thing about Vix and the sleeping option, Varam choked a little, then coughed, after his fourth glass.

"*Cough*Oh great! Jus*gag, cough* when I got fin*sputter, cough*finished with my fourth *coughcough* glass of eggnog! Thanks a *cough* lot, David!"
 
Posted by Vixaria Malonis (Member # 1366) on 12-08-2001 12:57 AM:
 
Vix hears David's comment, and recalls two of the items she packed in her handbag.

Moving over to Varam, she pulls out a small unmarked container of nose-pad softener.

"Varam, I'm sorry about that, I've got the antidote right here. It's a dermal transfer chemical, but it works best if warm, moist air is blown across it for a few seconds. It's also got to contact a non-furred surface on you with lots of blood vessels to ensure you don't fall asleep."

She dips her finger in a bit of the "antidote" and dabs it on her nose.

Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-08-2001 01:31 AM:
 
As the dance progressed, Alliana started to think about all the things that had happened to her over the past year, and just how many of them seemed to practically bend the rules of probability and reality.

Surviving the explosion, getting shoved into a lift for a body, landing a job at a first-contact outpost, meeting Dataran, regaining her body... The list just kept going.

*It's enough to make a girl believe in fate!* she thought uneasily, holding on to Dataran a little tighter.
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-08-2001 01:39 AM:
 
Meanwhile, mere inches away in Dataran's mind.

*Now? No, not now, we're dancing. Before midnight, that's for sure. Oh� she's squeezing me tighter� so comforting, I could do this all night. Night, there was something about this night I was thinking about. What was that?*

The velvet box presses against both Dataran and Alliana, through Dataran's coat.

*Oh yea, that. When the dancing settles down, then, just before midnight.*

Meanwhile, up on the stage, Paddock watches all of this from behind the mic, and clears his throat a little.

Once he starts singing, he forces down his accent and adopts a well-practiced North American accent for the song.

*I always knew dat hanging around dose tourists would help me in de end!* he thought with a grin.

"Sometimes, I feel the fear of
Uncertainty, stinging clear.
And I, can't help but ask myself
How much I let the fear, take the wheel
And steer.

*It's driven me before...
And it seems to have a vague...
Haunting mass appeal.

But lately I'm...
Beginning to find that I...
Should be the one behind the wheel.

~Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there.
With open arms, and open eyes
Yeah...

Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there
I'll be... there...

So if I
Decide to waiver my
Chance to be one of
The hive...

Will I...
Choose water over wine
And hold my own
And drive?

*It's driven me before...
And it seems to be the way...
That everyone else gets around

But lately I'm...
Beginning to find that
When I drive myself...
My light is found...

Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there...
With open arms, and open eyes
yeah...

Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there...
I'll be... there...

Would you choose...
Water over wine...

Hold the wheel and drive.

Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there...
With open arms, and open eyes
yeah...

Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there...
I'll... be... there...

As the song winds down, Dataran does not let go of Alliana.

His mind is occupied with the last lines of the song.
 
Posted by Gryphon_2 (Member # 1372) on 12-08-2001 07:45 PM:
 
OOC: Okay... Lets try this one more time. Oh and just post what song you want to sing. Not the song lyrics itself...

IC: Back on stage once more, Grief tries to make up for his past mistake.

"Sorry folks. Small mishap there. Anyway as you can probably guess that the ducks are the prize of the winners for the karaoke concert. So if people sing their hearts out, they win a duck to be prepared in the fashion of their chosing." Grief announces, then turns to leave.

But then he pauses when he realizes he left something out. "Oh yeah. Only one constraint. The song must accurately describe yourself. The audience, if they think its appropraite, will give a point total. Good singing abilities are a plus. Oh and if you would be so kind, suggest a song for the next person."

Weird looks "Okay. For instance my chosen song is 'Who is this child?' By Trans-siberian orcherstra. As for the next performer..." Grief looks over the crowd and sees the flashy Owen "Owen singing the 'Respect' song by Aretha Franklin."

"So who wants to start it off first? Owen, you want to take up my suggestion?"
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-08-2001 08:28 PM:
 
*Note to self: Thank Paddock for the song later on.* Alliana thought happily, not even noticing that the song was ending. She did notice that Dataran seemed to be in a world of his own at the moment, so, opting for the almost sickeningly cute guise, she tucked her head under his chin and flipped back her ears.

"Penny for your thoughts..." she asked quietly.
 
Posted by Chrome (Member # 619) on 12-09-2001 12:19 AM:
 
Chrome looks at Vix and stands up.

"Oh - I wondered why I hadn't felt anything yet. Now, you see, Varam; if you had just gone along, I could have had one too! Of course, this way, we can have all the egg nog we want..."

He refills his cup, and watches the crowd.
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-09-2001 12:23 AM:
 
Dataran looks at Alliana, and then breaks his hold on her. Stepping back a few paces, he reaches into his pocket.

"Alliana, for fifteen days I have courted you. I ask now on this night that you accept this gift."

He pulls the box out of his pocket, and holds it open to Alliana. Inside is a bracelet, made of linked settings, five small gems wide; at the outside are diamonds, then smokey quartz, and finally at the center is a line of rubies. About half of the bracelet is jeweled, and while the clasps are fairly plain looking gold, they contain a berak-away mechanisim so the bracelet does not endanger her if caught on something.

    He refills his cup, and watches the crowd.

Vix, considering the surroundings, removes the other item from her purse. A small tiara with a bouncy-spring antenna on it's front. She has attached a piece of mistletoe to the end of the antenna.

"If you really wanted one, then I suppose I've got another excuse here."

She nips around to Chrome, and puts on the tiara.
 
Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-09-2001 12:48 AM:
 
Alliana's breath caught in her throat and she covered her mouth in pure surprise when she saw the bracelet sparkling in the open box, not totally believing that this was finally happening.

"I...I..." For the first time since she'd arrived at the Acad, Alliana was actually at a loss for words.

*You know the lines, Allie. You know how they go. Don't keep him waiting.*

Looking up from the braclet to Dataran, she stepped forward to close the short distance between them, the words already forming on her tongue. The same words her mother, and her mother before her had said in this situation.

"I accept your gift, Dataran, as I accept you; now and forever." she managed through the tears that were starting to pool in her eyes.
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-09-2001 12:55 AM:
 
Dataran removes the bracelet, laying it across his palms. Crouching down he brings it up to her, the formality of actually clasping it in acceptance being hers.
  Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-09-2001 01:47 AM:
 
Alliana lays the bracelet across her wrist, blinking her eyes a little to clear them. As her fingers find the clasp, she takes a deep breath, letting it out slowly.

*Remember, you said 'Now and forever'...*

"And I meant it!" she whispered fiercely, and pushed the two ends of the clasp together with a tiny click that sounded like a gunshot in her ears. "Every word."
 
Posted by DataBank (Member # 562) on 12-09-2001 01:50 AM:
 
Dataran stands up, and holds her in a tender embrace.
  Posted by Alliana T'sari (Member # 1648) on 12-09-2001 02:07 AM:
 
Looking up at him, she can't help but smile happily.

"Thank you." she whispered, returning the embrace. "Thank you for everything."
 
Posted by Varam Rathien (Member # 1189) on 12-09-2001 02:16 AM:
 
Varam was relieved to the fact the eggnog wasn't drugged. He heard Chrome's and Vix's conversation, and responded.

"Alright, you two, go kiss as much as you want. I'm going to spend time with my one "true love"."

Of course, this meant Holocaust. Varam went over to the robot and stood there for a few minutes. However...

That's odd, I still feel like there's something missing. Why? Shouldn't I be happy? How come I still feel incomplete? I thought that Holocaust was a good idea. Is steel inadequate?

...Why...

...Why does this have to happen to me...

...why...
 
Posted by Chrome (Member # 619) on 12-09-2001 06:52 AM:
 
"Well, OK, Varam - Holocaust is a beauty, too, I suppose."

Chrome turns to Vix, giving her a friendly kiss on the nose. Meeting a new Gold fox still unnerved him, but Vix just didn' seem like an elite when you got to know her - except for a certain one he still missed...

Dataran was already moving to kiss Alliana, and this was coincidental, but it looked almost rehearsed.

That is until Dataran's loving peck and nuzzle broke to a question, "Um, Fangs, what is that?"

Eve was discreetly rearranging a dozen or so presents to hide the powered down hover-cart underneath a good sized package.

It's tag read: To Spooky, From your fellow nocturnes

That's when she spotted the skunk plushie. Particularly since it moved. Most toys don't move on their own, now do they?

Before anything could interfere, she snagged the little skunk and held it firmly to inspect it.

"Aww... what a kyoote wittle skunkie. Are you somebody's present? I don't see a tag on you. I guess I'm just going to have to find out who you belong to..." She cuddles it against her chest.

"Varam..." he muttered. "Dammit, kin dat boy not leave de heavy artillery at HOME for once??" Paddock walked up to the robot and glanced around to the other side, where he spied Varam sitting on the ground.

"Hey Varam! What be de deal wit bringing a death machine to..." he stopped in mid-sentence when he saw Varam's face.

"Hey, you all right, mon?"

Turn it. Now I feel bad that I was considering asking Vix to dance, at least in an attempt to make the Black-boy jealous. Glitch thought, as he poured a glass of eggnog for himself, carefully keeping his expression neutral. If I had a lovely vixen like that chasing me... (mental sigh)

Just then, his sensitive ears caught the sound of Eve's "Kyoote" comment, despite the amount of noise in the room and the noise-filtering ear plugs he habitually wore. He winced, By the Ancient Ones, I'd know that tone of voice anywhere. Please let that not be Clive, I'll never here the end of it.

He quickly filled another cup with 'nog and started to work his way over towards her, like that had been his intention all along.

Unassumingly, or rather, as unassuming as a six foot five human with wings can, Sean pauses by the Egg Nog to help himself to a cup. He glances to the left, then to the right... and drops something inside of it once he's sure no-one is looking. The 'nog ripples from some sort of chemical reaction, but otherwise doesn't look any different.


** OOC, if someone hasn't done it already, be aware that anyone drinking the egg nog after Sean is going to wind up feeling a little funny. Not bad funny.. HYPER.

Varam turns to Paddock

"No, everything's not okay. I feel like there's a damn hole in me. I thought that Holocaust here would fill that hole, but all it does is cover it up..."
 
Posted by Paddock (Member # 1434) on 12-10-2001 07:43 PM:
 
"Ohh.." Paddock said, sitting down next to Varam. "So dat's what dis is about? I kin see dat."

Leaning back against Holocaust, Paddock smiled a little. "Tell me someting, mon: you ever had feelings for anyone? Anyone who had a pulse, I mean." He rapped on the machine behind him. "Dis don' count."

  Posted by Varam Rathien (Member # 1189) on 12-10-2001 09:13 PM:
 
"No, Just shy. I guess it's fear of being rejected. Plus, I guess, well, I've heard that white foxes are freaking royalty! If that's the case...She's probably got somebody arranged to marry her, and...it's hopeless for me. WHY! CRUEL WORLD, WHY!?"

"Look, I'm gonna give ya a little advice on dis matter. Forget about de white fox. From what I'm hearin', dat was just pure physical attraction an' not much else. Ya built up someting in your mind dat ain't really dere at all."

Paddock glanced over his shoulder quickly. "But I tink I know a way teh get ya over yer shyness real quick-like, mon."

OOC: As the door swing gently open, Shadow, wearing a nice dark grey suit with a red tie slowly walks through the door. For a moment he simply stands there glancing around the room, noticing the students he has come to know through the year as well as some of the staff members. Afterwards, he strolls on over to the Christmas tree, in all of its cheerful decorations, and recalls what he learned about the popular Terran tradition.

"Not too many people are willing to do karaoke. How about you? I found that music thats really appropriate. Kung fu Fighting. Forgot who made it but it describes you to a T! So how about it?"

"Oh. And one more thing." Grief said, rotating his arm a full 360 degrees. "Its healing nicely now."

Still humming softly, Thorn took a look around. Not seeing the person he was looking for, he made his way back over to the tree. Taking the last small package out of his sack, he started picking up anything addressed to him, putting them in the bag for opening at leisure. He paused at one particular, thin bundle. Lenisa and Pavta? Hmmm. Convenient...

He peered around again, making his way over to the food table. Hmmm, perhaps I should try this... it smells nice enough... Shrugging, he poured himself a glass of egg nog and took a sip.

"Ahhh.." Paddock sighed. "Mon, did it ever occur to you dat maybe de reason she does dat is because she be trying to get your attention, mebbe even make you laugh every once in a while?"

He leaned back against the machine and closed his eyes for a moment. "I had a friend like dat back home named Leah Didaro. She acted almost exactly like Vix over dere, right down to the hugging deal." He grinned at the memory.

"Well, she'd been trying to catch de eye of dis fellow by de name of Will LaCroix for some time. She grew up wit him, ya see, and she'd had a crush on him for years. But ol' Will only saw her as a little sister of sorts, even dough dey were de same age."

Another grin. "Well, dat an' Will wasn't de sharpest knife in de drawer when it came to de ladies. But anyway, I found out Leah was really getting down about it, and went to have a little talk wit Will. Turns out ol' Will knew all along, it's just dat he didn't tink dat she was de right one fer him. He said that she was always actin' weird around him, kinda like Vix to you."

"Now, normally I try to keep out of de matchmaking deal. I prefer to let fate run its course with no interference, but dey bote had someting good, but dey didn't know it yet. So I told Will to basically just go talk to Leah about it and try to work someting out, even if it's only dat dey should just be friends; cause tings like dis, dey kin ruin you forevah, mon."

Paddock opened his eyes and looked over at Varam. "You understand what I'm tryin' to tell ya? Just go talk to her. Don' set terms, don' complain, jest go talk to her and see if maybe she's de one who fits dat hole. An' if she isn't, de worst ting dat you kin git out of it is another friend."

Paddock stood up slowly, brushing himself off. "But it's your choice, mon. I can't tell ya how to live or what ta do. Alls I kin do is let you in on my experience, and hope you make de right decision."

Eve froze for a moment, her eyes widening almost imperceptabily as the male jaguar addressed her casually and at being off-guard enough not to notice his approach. She had been so caught up in fussing over--or tormenting?--the little skunk, that it took her a minute to reply.

"Ah, no... I just found it under this tree, and it doesn't have a tag you see..." She started to babble slightly, until realizing that his attention had been diverted by Grief onstage. At the same time, her hands began to tighten, until the skunk in her hands gave an involuntary squeak. Eve eased her grip immediately.

"(Sigh), and just what do you have gotten into, Eve?" Glitch asked as he came up beside her, drinks in hand. Whew, its crowded in here, but at least I managed not to spill these drinks he thought.

The little skunk had an imploring look on it's face as it stared at Glitch.

"Nothing... Ooh, is that eggnog?" She replied evasively. "You chickened out, didn't you?" Eve hissed almost under her breath, so only Tarriq (Glitch) could hear.

"Yes it is. Here, I brought you some too. And I think that might be someone's pet, Eve." 'Riq replied lightly. The light flickered in the little skunk's eyes and he almost looked betrayed.

"No. Black-Boy is starting to get a clue, its better not to push him one way or the other. Worst case, I'll get him alone and break out a clue-by-four." Glitch hissed back.

"Well, if he's a pet, he must have gotten out of someone's room. I'll just hang on to him until the party's over or someone comes to claim him." Eve replied nochalantly, leading Tarriq over to a small table and chairs. She set the skunk down on the table, resting one hand on its back as she accepted the 'nog and sat down "We'll ID him by the pet-ID chip scanner I have."

"Hmph. At least we talked Camie out of dying him gold!" she hissed back.

Finally, Dataran comes up for air.

"Ok, I think I heard somehting about karaoke, then," he says flatly, looking for Grief.

Finally he spots him, gives Alliana a quick peck, and excuses himself for a moment.

Finally, arriving at the tree, he noses in a bit, "Grief, do you have Shameless by Billy Joel on that thing?"

"Well, there is a one less couple to speculate about now," Glitch smirked. "I don't know if you saw, Eve but Dat just proposed to Deuce on the dance floor."

"I saw, for the most part, but then again, how long have we known?" Eve smirked back, petting the little skunk firmly, as it looked on in despair.

Dataran gets up, and sings the "Shameless", fairly true to the original album rendition.

He puts a bit more heart into it than one would expect of him, especially the line "It's you world now, I can't refuse"

Much better than doing the "Maple Leaf Rag", Dataran thinks when done with the song, and awaits the response of the audience.

Alliana just stands there for a moment, still recovering from what just happened; a huge grin plastered across her face.

NOW I remember why I love him! He could melt the icecaps with those kisses!

Stepping over to the refreshments table, she pours herself a glass of eggnog and turns to watch Dataran do his thing onstage.

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." she sung quietly, unable to stop smiling as she sipped on the eggnog.

This is about the time Dataran decides to sing that Billy Joel song, and Alliana's smile breaks into a full blown grin again.

"YEAH!! I GIVE IT A 'TEN'!!" she called from across the cafeteria when the song was finished.

"Everyone here has seen the traditional Shivae dance held where shivae participate in a dance of unique and unknown origin to a stylized set of growels produced by musitions, well mink and I will be doing our own version and gee we don't need instraments"

Once everyone cleared the dance floor minku and owen started circleing each other letting out hisses and snarls and in a flash the two seemed to be attacking each other. While lacking the formal style of parade trained shivae they put alot more feeling into it and the noises they made seemed to have more feeling. Twards the end minku "acidentily" opened owen up with a shallow wound that would provide a heroic looking scar when healed, the two continued as if not noticing moving in ways normaly un seen due to the lighter gravity. Finaly minku closed the dance by assuming what appeared to be a submisive stance.

After he got up the two took a formal bow with owen seeming slightly pixalated even though he hand't had anything from the spiked drinks of the evening

If he were really one of truly malicious intent he'd have already turned this party upside down, but he's content with mild mayhem and mischief that can't be easily traced to him. Unfortunately, his brother is now standing by the table and helping himself to something to drink... egg nog.

Chrome is sitting staring into his egg nog when the popcorn ball lands in his lap. He blinks at it, then looks up at Vix, then over at the tree; then nearly spills his cup. Jumping up, he sets the cup down and moves quickly over to the tree, pulling up alongside Cilke.

*Oh, oh - a big mountie's talking to her - never mind, it's a party; of course people are talking!*

"Hi, Cilke! I'm so glad you made it!"

He puts on his best smile and continues, his tail swishing nervously.

"Isn't the tree gorgeous? I particularly like the special ornaments people have been adding! Um, have you looked under it?"

His eyes stray for a moment to the large box wrapped in white paper and black ribbon, with the tag reading "For Cilke, From Chrome."

I love it when we get to do Earth things.. and I ... really.. really.. love candy canes!" She reaches out and snags one off the tree as she says so. "Have you had one, they're really good and minty!"

Then she notices Chrome standing by her, "Minty!" She giggles at her own little comment. "Thank you, Chrome, I was a bit late because I had to drop off some things...!" Presents. Cilke. Presents. She blinks. The white skunk had forgotten that there MIGHT be presents under the tree for for her. She kneels forward to see what Chrome is looking for and sticks the straight end of the candy cane in her mouth, "Ohh.. Chrome!" She squeals, pleasantly surprised and retrieves the gift.

Meanwhile, Sean glances over his shoulder at Stephen, "Heh.. always up to no good." He blinks innocently and nods to Samantha, "And what would you have in mind... that I can help with?" Picking on his brother is just the thing to make this even more fun... and draw attention away from the gradually sugar-induced energy beginning to spread through the room.

Unfortunately, while Sean has his back turned, Stephen has taken the tiara from Vixaria and has it behind his back,... heading for Sean and Samantha while looking off to the side.

Lenisa continues her circuit of the room smiling and greeting people as she passes them with Duske perched on her back. Much to the delight of her young passenger, she swings past the refreshments to snag a couple cookies - one she splits with Duske while she tosses the other back to the Digni girl. As she progresses around the room, her chosen route gives her and her passenger a good look at the Shivae dance Owen and Minku put on, and Teela oohs and bounces excitedly in the wagon then applauds at the end.

Finally, she returns Teela to her parents, but before Lenisa can walk off, the Digni calls out, "Don't you want your present, 'Nisa?" Blushing at her own carelessness, the Scythetail retrieves Owen's gift to her and giggles, "Thanks, Teela, I almost forgot."

She sits down right where she is and finishes unwrapping the present. Beneath the shiney green foil is a black velvet box, and within the box is a silver necklace with a heart-shaped pendant. She blinks a few times before slowly lifting the necklace out, and a small smile tugs at her lips. Fastening the necklace around her neck, she turns that bemused smile on Graum and his family saying, "Excuse me...there's something I need to do." She trots off to one side where she leaves her wagon then hurries over to Owen as quickly as she can without bowling people over. "Was there something you wanted to tell me?" she asks with her familiar huge grin.

"I don't believe I have. You called them candy canes? Hmm. Oh, hello Chrome. Are you enjoying the party?" He notices Chrome's excitement when Cilke reaches under the tree.
"Well, have fun, both of you. I think I will check the dinner table."

Owen noticing that Lenisa is wearing the neclace and smileing broadly freazes in place. For a brief moment there seems to be a translator maulfunction as his mouth moves but no sound results. Finaly he grins and steps forward only to fall flat on his face (or the closes aproximation a reptiloid can).

Realizing that he had missed the kerokee, he hops back off the stage in descust and sits back down in his wheel chair.

Bite me, not a lot of time.

"Right now, just stall him for a minute."

She goes off, sees Tim, and heads over.

"Hey Tim," her voice then turns to a whisper, "I don't suppose you could convince a couple of your vixen friends to help me out with a little 'ambush' involving Stephen and some mistletoe." she carefully points him out, trying not to be to obvious to Stephen, "See that tiara with that mistletoe at the end? Guess who he plans to use it on?"

She then pulls another peice of mistletoe from her purse, "I was going to use this on Varam when Vixaria was nearby, but it's good for what I have planned." she grins, "If you can get a couple of your friends standing close by, when he tries to sneak up on me, I'll turn and hang this over him at the last second, and then your friends move in. Nothing too much, just a couple pecks on the cheeks should be enough for the surprise." Now if only Mikey were here with his camera.

Vix watches this with a slight grin.

*Oh, this is perfect�* she thinks, watching Sammantha move off.

*Chrome's doing well, and that just leaves Varam.*

A chirping on her datapad distracts her.

*What the�* reading the pad, her ears fall down as her jaw goes slack.

"She didn't�" she utters, re-reading the message. "She did."

Standing beside Alliana, she taps out a message:

    quote:Saria,

    I'm in the main cafeteria, follow the instructions on the walls. Look forward to seeing you and Tsara, it's been ages.

She knocks back her glass of punch and goes for another.

Dave overhears snippits of the conversation between Sammantha and Tim going on by the refreshment table. He turns towards Spooky. "Excuse me for a moment, love."
He heads over and pours himself a cup of eggnog.
He looks at Sammantha. "After you're done with your mistletoe, mind if I borrow it for a few moments?"
:edit:
He then notices Vix walk up beside him and start downing the punch. "Something up?"
  Posted by Sean (Member # 1727) on 12-11-2001 09:24 PM:
 
Sean watches Samantha go off and turns to see where Stephen is so he can slow him down a little. There's just one problem, Stephen's target was NOT Samantha.

It's Sean.

And Stephen's quick. He gets right behind Sean, between his wings and grabs a handful of his strawberry blonde hair, yanking it sharply.

"Yaagh!" Sean yelps and turns to grab for his brother, giving Stephen just enough time to slap the tiara onto Sean's forehead and shove him in Samantha's direction.

Minku stepped down from the direct line of sight and gave owen a nod of congratualtions. Owen, however, seemed a little preoccupied with a certain scythtail playing piggy back and wearing a rather attractive neckless. Minku smiled inwardly, something he wouldnt have been able to do a year a go. "amazing how things change" he though. Lenisa was now a good friend, and if she could see the pherimones Owen was giving off unitentionally right now she would be blushing almost luminesently. Minku chuckled, and wished Owen luck

Chrome ear blushes a bit at Minty, but decides Cilke can call him anything she wants to. He nods to Shadow, barely able to look away form Cilke and the package.

"Hi, Shadow - yes, the party's looking up!"

He stands closer to her, all trace of his earlier serioiusness gone.

Varam, in hearing the story, sits there and blinks a few times. Then...

"I've talked to her, and I didn't really get any feelings. She's not my type. Hmmmm...Maybe THAT'S IT! I'll just tell her that she isn't the one for me! Ingenious! Thanks, Pad."

Then turning back to Sammantha with an evil grin and whispered "It was Sean, not his brother but I don't think that he'll try that again."

Cilke carefully unwraps the package, the entire time talking to Chrome, "You shouldn't have! That's so sweet and thoughtful!"

Elsewhere in the room, Sean, having been taken by surprise in more than one way, stands there, a look of utter shock on his face and a crimson shade rapidly spreading over his cheeks. "Squid!" He blurts, "I'm going to KILL you, Stephen!" Sean turns quickly, looking for his brother, .. who has smartly gotten out of sight.

But events take a different than expected course ...

Sammantha blinks, Well, that turned out a bit different than expected. Then she turns to Tim, "You are so evil , " she grins, "but funny."

She then goes over to Sean and removes the tiara, but not before giving him a peck on the cheek, "Sorry about that."

Sean looks a bit more surprised as Samantha removes the offending object, and extremely hurt at the same time because he hadn't intended on looking like a complete and total idiot, especially when he couldn't do anything to stop it.

Glitch valiantly tried to surpress laughter, watching from their vantage point at the happenings by the punch bowl and at the tree. The worst part is the fact that Eve is calmly sitting next to him, humming a naughty Mounty courting song that they both knew.

"Now I wish that Camie (hee) hadn't volunteered to (hee) go back to Cyantia with that delegation for a week. (hee) She would have loved all (hee) this. Heck, s(hee)'d be right in the middle with the mistletoe." Glitch managed out.

"Mmm, yes she would. And to think Poobah was worried that we might have to back up security if things got tense." Eve replied slyly, "Speaking of tailers, where is that bunny Pavta? She's not the type to miss a party like this."

As they were speaking, Eve's hand slipped away from petting the little skunk, and the table started to move ever so slowly outward, until it was right in to the two Cyantian skunks view, framed in a puddle of light. The skunk never moved as the table was being pushed, but it's little eyes seemed to dart everywhere.

Mike enters the cafeteria with the bag of presents. The one on top is the named one, To Sammantha, From Mike . But the present is not wrapped like the others, but a seperately wrapped box and lid. And unseen to others, the side toward Mike has some air holes.

He heads to the Christmas Tree, and sees Chrome there, with Cilke. Noting they seem to be talking, he decides to wait a minute before placing the presents, save one.

He happens to see Sammantha and Sean together, with Stephen creeping up. Anticipating some mischief, he gets his camera ready, and gets a shot of Tim's "creative interperatation" of the mistletoe tradition, and a few of Sean blowing his top and finally being consoled by Sammantha.

"Tis the Season." he says to no one in particular.

Vix is awoken from her punch feeding by Sean's exclamation.

She didn't exactly rush over, but made her way over while looking as official as she can.

*If I play this exactly right, I'm as good as my fur color.* Being a rich, true Gold of what was deemed "obviously pure" blood, that is pretty darned Gold.

"Sean, it looks like you're having problems with your troublesome brother, may my tracking skills be of assistance?" she says to his back, while winking at Sammantha and party.

"Or perhaps my functionality as security�"

Her face is as solid as Torcias's, but there is a twinge of delight in her voice. Understandable for someone who spends a great deal of her working hours catching pranksters, and has little "Stephan" outlines on her Datapad.

Lenisa darts forwards and cups her hand under Owen's chin just before it would have smacked the floor. Barely holding back a giggle, she comments, "You know, 'falling for someone' is only an expression." Not for lack of friendliness, but rather for a certain emerald and obsidian distraction does she fail to greet Minku.

Two Gold Vixens enter the room, one of them around 14 years old, the other� well you don't ask a lady that.

What are their intentions?

Who are they here for?

What are their names?

Will Varam hava a heart attack?

Tune in next thread, where I try to answer these questions.

I will edit this post to include a link to it when I finish starting Part 3!
