Come one, come all.

We say it once and we'll say it again.

This is the most happening party.

Sure- The Christmas Party got ruined by a gremlin and a supernatural hunter

And The Field Trip had demonic sacrifices,

The Escape Room was a mess as well,

And a Leprechaun ruined St Patty's Day

And Jack ruined the Easter Holiday party.

And off camera, the spirits of 1776 ruined the fourth party, while on screen- Jack made the late guests go through trials.

And the Labor Day party had chaos as did the Halloween one

But this one- we promise-

...... Who we kidding? Expect chaos.

Is that the god of desire?

Fuck.​

EVENT INFO.

Who: Everyone is invited. You can make character sheets if you want.

What:

You are someone who was invited to the party


When: February 14th 1PM EST/12PM CST. This will end at 4PM EST.

Where: This RP will have a ChaRP room once it's ready.

HOW: This is a Action Urban Fantasy ( But Magic is semi-secret ) ChaRP with improvised GMing. That means you should interact with each other. There are definitely going to be moments where you can work together ( or against each other depending on who you plan to play). There will 100% be In game consequences.... so choose wisely, because I promise you one thing. This party will be a disaster.​

I'm mostly used to Modern-Fantasy and things with some level of Slice of Life to them, though I'm willing to try anything even dice RP. I do think my fight scenes read a bit odd though, it's a work in progress... I also have a penchant for Comedy.
Name: Rosemarie Holtzer
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Occupation: High School Student

Personality: Rosemarie is overly confident, stubborn and sounds like she's always bored or annoyed by something. To say that she acts spoiled like a princess would not be wrong, actually. With her high standards and efforts to be the best, most responsible and organized at everything she does, Rosemarie's demeanor is incredibly nobility-like despite not being from a noble family at all. It also infuriates her when her efforts aren't acknowledged and the girl dislikes any displays of lack of discipline.

On social events, the Holtzer's daughter knows exactly how to carry herself with grace and manners, doing her best to be the most pleasant guest ever, paying the utmost attention to whatever is being said.
Internally, Rosemarie really doesn't want to be there at all and wants no more than to go back home and finally play some games. These kind of events are boring.

.
The day her father decided to try politics and won was Rosemarie's doomsday.

Robbed of her privacy at an early age, the young Holtzer was quickly thrown into the life of image keeping and paparazzi, coming to learn that once her cuteness factor of being a toddler was gone, the opposition would use her behavior to paint her father in a bad light. The daughter of the mayor couldn't be brash, the daughter of the mayor couldn't be mean or the news people would talk. On her accord and no one else's, Rosemarie took it upon herself to be an exemplary human being, a true princess out of fairytales. Gentle, helpful, the possessor of impeccable manners and grace. She had hoped that the act wouldn't last long, that the bad rumors would stop and everything could go back to normality soon, but that wasn't what happened.
Guilbert Holtzer was re-elected, kept climbing the political hierarchy and even when he wasn't actively a part of politics, had clearly become quite the influential man.

Now stuck in a cage of her own making, Rosemarie was forced to play along, acting on the role for long enough that her original personality started fading away, blending with this character she had constructed. The tomboyish toddler that had once been was overwritten into a charismatic, feminine and properly educated lady. The kind of queen bee that ruled the school by being the epitome of perfection and responsibility. Eventually said 'title' had begun going over her head, the new Rosemarie had high standards, was incredibly demanding and way too confident. But at the same time, nurtured big amounts of frustration and regret, giving birth to a volatile, explosive temper that was becoming harder and harder to keep in check.

That's when she met MMO RPGs. Not having tried a game yet for deeming it too barbaric and a waste of time, Rosemarie had bought a PC game in curiosity. The ad for the game, claiming the experience to be like living as a different person had caught her interest. It was love at first sight and exactly what she needed. In the world of the game, the girl had been free to act as she wanted, using the experience to unwind and release all of the pent-up destructive energy she had been building up! Killing things was fun! Completing quests gave her a sense of accomplishment that her life had long been drained of.

To say that she was hooked would be an understatement.

From there on, Rosemarie would go on to try all sorts of similar games, hopping from a title to the next one the moment the experience got any dull to her. The thrill and the excitement were a must!
With her father now taking the role of Senator, Rosemarie is more than never living a double life: The perfect example of a daughter to the outside world and an unstoppable, insatiable, impulsive player in the gaming world.
Recent Happenings: Having to attend the Campbell's Christmas party as a stand-in for her very busy dad, Rosemarie found herself making quick acquaintances with the host's son, Jaxob who turns out was just as bored over having to attend as she was. Unfortunately, their conversation in the kitchen and far from any adults so they could act as themselves got interrupted when the lights in the house all went out, plunging the whole group into darkness, enough for somebody to murder the event's host.

Failing to understand that Jaxob had two dads and one of them had just been killed in front of them, Rosemarie was mostly unaffected by the events at the start, playing detective with the invitations and guest list but otherwise not making huge progress on the investigations as both the remaining dad and son turned to be extremely unhelpful on the matter. Tensions rose as the murders continued happening, the young lady eventually hitting her limit as it seemed that all of them had just as much risk as being the next-
Or so she had thought as the culprit announced he was letting the survivors escape and everyone that was supposed to be dead had already been dealt with. Such, not good but acceptable news were then subverted by a member of their own group deciding that none of them could make it alive, which was wrongly interpreted as him having been an accomplice the entire time and not just a nut-job.

Things proceeded to get even weirder as Jaxob somehow bent the laws of well, everything and had the dead pin the crazy man down, to which Rosemarie responded with a knife to his chest in desperation for remaining alive. Then everything went back to normal, no one was dead and she was left wondering whether it had actually happened or maybe she had been playing too many games and hallucinated the whole thing. One thing was certain though, maybe she should start carrying a weapon with herself from now on, just in case she needed to defend herself again.

The historical tunnel trip turned out to be similarly a disaster, with Jaxob messing with things and causing it to collapse, to apparently being against some cultists, stopping Ricky from killing somebody and more having to run away because the tunnel was rumbling and falling apart again. Having to be rescued by the murderer of all people was the last thing that Rosemarie wanted to be indebted with, but here we are. There's something definitely up with the people, she is pretty sure of it, but what was still to be determined. Jaxob was weird, but she'd be lying if she said it was a super bad kind of weird, aaaand the thrill was kinda fun too. Talking about fun, an escape room! Now we're talking, it was going to truly be like a game come to life!! This time she is already anticipating everything going wrong though as this seems to be the pattern in the making...

Kyaaa~! It's here! She loves iiit! It's so similar to the ones she has in-game! It's a bit on the heavier side though... Oh well, you can't feel the actual weight of weapons through VR, but still eeeee, so excited! Weirdly excited, she should definitely tone it down a tad, tehe~ Mary bought just one of them for now though, for testing purposes, and to not make the expense too suspicious on her family's budget. Aaah, but it's already soooo worth it!! Something definitely told her that she shouldn't be looking forward to needing it this much, though...
Beeeecause skeletons invaded their escape room near the end and then Jack decided to toy with their fears during the Easter/April fool's party. Of course. At least there was some satisfaction to be gained seeing the trickster god getting thrown around the place by Jaxob, but ever since, her schedule has been too packed to meet up again. ...Is this what missing someone feels like?

(Faceclam: Young Segio Carvajal)
Name
Jaxob Campbell

Age
18

Personality: Jaxob has the personality of most teenage boys who have fathers who has a lot of power,a bit of a rebel and not afraid to cause some trouble. He is also a nice kid who enjoys going places, but he also hates surprises. He also tends to pick up the personality ( and sometimes) abilities of people around him.

Biography
Jaxob was a "gift" to his fathers, being "borrn" as a baby to be their "son" and has grown up for the past sixteen years thinking he was normal. ( I mean, don't most kids look exactly their two parents perfectly combined as teens? Nothing weird here) He also has been a participant in a host of weird parties ( Loveless has them beautifully described in Rosemarie's summary, it's pretty much the same).

Abilities/Powers

Necromancy- Jax can bring people back from the dead. ( He got this from his dad. Eyes become grey when using this power)

Magic- Jaxob picked up how to cast spells from his other dad. ( Eyes become blue when using this power)

Power Mimicry- The closer he gets to a person, the more of their powers he can use. This however also works in the same way that if he is around a human, the more human like he is. (Eyes remain normal color)

Realty Manipulation- Jaxob doesn't realize that, but whenever he is extremely upset or scared, he is able to use powers that he doesn't understand.. (Eyes become red.)

Other Info
Jaxob is a doppelganger of his two fathers. :)​

1644857809361.png Name: Lliira Lockwood (of the Edinburgh Lockwoods)
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Orientation: Heterosexual
Bio:

Lliira's parents are obsessed with Success, both economic and social. So naturally it was a great disappointment when their daughter turned out to be, not a winsome debutante or even a hard-driving would-be executive, but a shy, bookish girl with a nervous stutter, whose taste in books centered on the occult, the arcane, and the strange. Her albinism was only an icing on her cake of...well, let's not say failure, that would affirm the negative, and the first step to Success is a positive mindset!

Unfortunately, no amount of positive affirmations could prevent the prep-school girls from eating Lliira alive. Nor could they prevent her from retreating ever further into her studies and meditations and...shall we say...unusual practices involving wands and candles and chalices and such? Spirituality--yes, we'll call it that, because her mother and father rarely had time to attempt to steer her toward more practical pursuits, and it wasn't as if an owl was going to show up with her invitation to Hogwarts.

The governesses she grew up with couldn't be bothered to help much in that regard. I suppose they might say they weren't paid well enough to truly raise Lliira to become someone who mattered, rather than leaving her to her own devices as long as she was never a behavior problem they had to deal with. Besides, it's not as if a governess could be a proper model of Success now, is it?

And so, while she got nearly perfect grades in school, she never managed to have any friends or be invited to any parties. Instead, as she entered her teens she began using her spare time to study dead languages of all things: Latin, Greek, ancient Egyptian, and Sumerian, so she could read peculiar old texts in the original. For a time, her parents didn't really know what to do except indulge her interests and hope it was just a phase she was going through, one she might perhaps grow out of as soon as she started to become interested in boys. Unfortunately, prep-school boys were at least as nasty to her as prep-school girls if not worse, so Lliira never developed any crushes.

1644857889254.png Her 16th birthday came and went with no signs of improvement. There was really only one thing her poor mother and father could think of to do: arrange for her to spend some time with her aunt Fiona in America, during the lead-up to Fiona's great New Year's Gala. Everyone who was anyone was going to be there, and surely there could be no one better than Miss Fiona Lockwood to prepare Lliira for her high society debut.

This turned out to be something of a disaster, but for some reason, no one wanted to talk to any of the society page reporters about events at the Gala, and at least Lliira received no blame. In fact, her life went back to something approaching normal, until her prep school arranged a field trip to explore the Paris Catacombs. Trapped underground by an earthquake, she was confronted by a mysterious cult leader who seemed to want to recruit her.

This terrifying encounter only strengthened Lliira's tendency to hide away and keep to herself. But Aunt Fiona has the perfect answer to her niece's self-isolation: a great big New York-style party for that happiest and most harmless of holidays--St. Patrick's Day! What could possibly go wrong?

Weeelll, it turns out that when the hosts happened to be showing off a stolen pot of gold from a Leprechaun, quite a bit! But then, things can also go right. For one thing, Lliira got to meet an actual Leprechaun, which isn't something that happens every day. Thanks to her familiarity with Celtic lore and the Fair Folk, she was able to prevent conflict between the Leprechaun and the party-goers from escalating.

Well, sort of. With help from Jaxob, Michael, and a handsome young man named Tholby, the party ended without any lasting harm. And, she received an invitation to their next big event, a fete for April Fool's Day and Easter. Aunt Fiona was delighted, so of course she could go.

The High Strangeness of the Campbells, April Fool's Day, and the celebration of springtime and fertility all in the same Easter basket...so she was not exactly surprised that it led to an encounter with Jack, a powerful and capricious trickster spirit. But thanks to quick, and rather violent action from a girl who, like Lliira herself, seemed fate-bound to these increasingly Fortean fetes, Jack was defeated for the time being.

Then Lliira received an invitation to a Fourth of July party that seemed certain to go off with a bang...which it did, but not in the way she expected. Yes, there was another encounter with Jack, but the 'ordeal' had ended in friendship rather than violence, ultimately resulting in Lliira moving to a new school and having--rather to her own astonishment--a group of friends. While they would certainly qualify as The Odd Group at any school, they were fractally so as one of them was the Quarterback of the football team. At any rate, no one messed with them, and for the first time in her life, Lliira began to enjoy school.

But then she received an invitation for a Valentine's Day party where (probably) literally anything could happen. Nervous gulp? Why, yes.

Personality:

Lliira is painfully shy, and very quiet. She even moves with an eerily silent grace, so that she seems to appear and disappear like a spirit. When not forced to wear a school uniform, she wears flowing gowns and hooded cloaks (the latter shield her from sunlight, which burns her easily). She has a soft voice with a Scottish accent. All together, it is as if she is an exchange student from Middle Earth.

She always has a book with her, usually some obscure arcane tome, like the Grimoire of Abramelin the Mage, a volume from the Vedas, or a copy of The Corpus Hermeticum or the Enuma Elish with interlinear translation. When she does not expect to encounter other teenagers who might maliciously take it from her, she also carries her journal, a leather-bound book containing mystic diagrams and writings in a cypher based on the Voynich script, along with blank pages remaining to be filled.

tumblr_mmg4bfE3YC1qkwxnzo1_400.gif

Abilities:

Lliira has never told anyone that she can see auras, and feel the presence of magical currents such as ley lines and the delineation around a consecrated space.

Her spell-casting does not always work, but when it does, it results in a synchronicity that provides her what she hoped for, or perhaps something unexpected that turns out to be better in some way. On occasion, she has been able to cause people to not notice her for a time (a challenge, given her distinctive looks), or just leave her alone.

She can see nature spirits, but has had little opportunity to try to interact with them, since anyone seeing her talking to something they couldn't see would surely regard her as insane.

Her Tarot readings can sometimes warn her of trouble ahead, or provide useful insights into herself or others. However, they are always subject to interpretation, so she is not infallible.

From time to time, she may have a dream, vision, or flash of insight, though these are not things she can conjure at will. They too are subject to interpretation, and operate according to the alien logic of the supernatural, so they do not always provide straightforward guidance.

Age: 25

Valerian is a "rogue scholar" of ancient and classical history who has published unconventional theories on the esoteric and mystical beliefs of the ancient world. He leads tours to mysterious places such as ancient Egypt, and megalithic sites in Europe, Central, and South America.

He is also a practitioner of the historical European martial arts of the rapier and longsword.

He is insatiably curious, and goes through life with a high-energy "the game is afoot!" attitude.

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    This is the lovely GM Color like always


    Today at 11:02 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    The Campbell house was fully fitted with decorations and party food for the Valentine's Day Party. Even if the host was still single, he wasn't about to miss a holiday party- well except maybe President's Day next week. It didn't really fit a party mood. There were little chocolates at the door, a kissing booth and even a couple of couples game. Oh and a container of sweethearts where you can guess the number.


    Today at 11:04 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Lliira nervously entered the house, following a couple of party guests through the door. Tholby would be here... Her transfer to his school had taken longer than she's hoped. While she and Tholby hung out and crushed on each other (at least, she hoped it was mutual; he was hard to read...), neither had managed to Make It Official yet. She wore a purple and white lace dress and matching necklace. By instinct, she drifted to the edge of the room. She took a deep breath and tried to shift to an alert, focused state. Because this was the Campbell house. There would be more than just happy couples showing up, if the past was anything to go by.


    Today at 11:17 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Viaeny bounced into the room wearing a spunky burgundy lace dress with her hair in spin-curls. Any signs of cute single people? Magic? She spotted Lliira and gave her an animated wave.


    Today at 11:23 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    It seemed that Lllira was more right than she realized. It was more than just going to be happy couples showing up to partake in the party spirit. Dressed in his finest party attire ( A nice grey muscle shirt and a pair of dress jeans along with winged shoes, a god would walk into the party. The strange guest would run his hand through his pushed back hair and scan the room. " Well, this is certainly one way to throw a Valentine's Day Party." Lillra would immediately notice that this was the aura of a God.


    Today at 11:24 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack would walk himself into the party wearing a surpsingly matching shirt and blazer along with jeans to Vianey's dress. " Huh- now that is purely coincidence," he replied, offering a smile as he walked up to the ladies. " I'm actually not here to cause trouble for once."


    Today at 11:25 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby would walk in a purple dress shirt and some white jeans. How those things hadn't gotten dirty was a miracle in of themselves. He would quietly enter and for once, he didn't notice anything weird. Sure, Jack was here- but he seemed less impish today. Which was a funny sentence to think.


    Today at 11:27 AM

  • Loveless:
    Each step closer to the Campbell's house seemed to whisper that she was making a huge mistake, as the pink and red decoration with hearts everywhere came slowly into sight. Ahaha... ahahaha- Was it too late to turn back now?? No. Wait! Rosemarie mentally slapped herself, frozen by the stairs in the front. Yeah, sure it's awkward and all that but! ...But the fact that she had gotten an invite at all again was something that had to be honored! Was that even the right word for this? Ahhh that's beside the point! Do not let this stupid holiday ruin your chances! Without even having the time to ask 'chance for what', Marie finally went up the stairs to knock at the door. Initially, a reluctant, unpolished knock; Quickly replaced by a proper dry one.


    Today at 11:28 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Hello again," Valerian said to the girl on the steps, as he walked up arm-in-arm with Jasmine. Hopefully, the girl wouldn't have to punch anyone out this time.


    Today at 11:30 AM

  • Diana:
    Of course Jasmine was here with Valerian, if a little wary. She was pretty certain the host of this event was the same as past events that were quite wild and a little concerning, but how was she going to turn down a Valentine's Day date with Valerian? Sporting a lovely soft pink dress and a smile that could charm anymore, at least she was willing to try and have some fun at this event! Who could be mad about free food and drinks? "I do hope there's the pink champagne..."


    Today at 11:31 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob wasn't exactly in the worst mood today, but he was for sure not in the best one either. It wasn't that he didn't want a party this time, it was that somehow his father hadn't done anything special for his eighteenth birthday. It was quiet as he heard the knock on the door. He only knew one person to do that. " Well, I got it," he replied, going to answer the door and offering a smile when it was Rosemarie. " Oh yeah, you made it. I wasn't sure if you were coming this time."


    Today at 11:32 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    There was a ton of pink Champagne in every shade of pink at the refreshment table.


    Today at 11:33 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Valerian wore a sharp dark suit with a bowtie and silk vest that matched Jasmine's dress. "Looks like it," he said with a smile, picking out a glass of champagne that also matched Jasmine's dress to offer to her.


    Today at 11:39 AM

  • Diana:
    "These themed parties are always so fun!" she exclaimed, taking a glass and a sip. It tasted... pink! As it should. You never knew when hosts would get all creative with the cocktails and end up serving you some sort of odd potion of mixed drinks that tasted more like a nightmare than a treat. Librarians especially loved picking up nonsense recipes out of books and pinterest.


    Today at 11:43 AM

  • Loveless:
    Taken by surprise, Rosemarie had quickly turned around to remain somewhat tense as she recognized the pair of adults from the Paris trip. Uhh, oh god, how much of that did they remember?? "Oh, I see that the invites went far and wide this time, haven't they?", she tried playing it off as smoothly as possible, chuckling for a moment in an attempt to ease her nervousness. It worked? Just not for as long as she would have liked. The door opened and there was Jaxob right behind it, causing Marie to tense up again. "Ah, don't startle me like that!", she retorted, blaming her behavior on the surprise. Honestly, he can say that again, a minute ago she wasn't sure she was coming either! "I got someone to cover at school for me so, free day schedule for once~", just don't mention that she'll have to return the favor sometime too...


    Today at 11:44 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Lliira blinked in astonishment at aura that radiated from the "man" in the grey muscle shirt. Then she noticed the wings on his shoes. Hermes? No...Eros... she thought. Oh boy. And just as she thought the word 'boy,' a figure in white caught her eye: Tholby. Suddenly her throat was dry. What should I do?


    Today at 11:47 AM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Hi Jack!" Viaeny said, quirking an eyebrow at Jack's matching outfit. There's no such thing as coincidence, she thought, but what does it mean? Sometimes in her previous encounters with him, she got the impression he might be crushing on her. But did ageless Trickster spirits really crush on high school girls? And what should she do if he did? Could she still tease girls with crushes on Edward Cullen ("Dude! You realize he's, like 100 years old, right? Grandpaaaaaaaaaaa!") if...well, that couldn't really happen, could it?


    Today at 11:56 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob would not have noticed the adult from the Paris trip and he didn't think much of it for that matter. It seemed that people found the supernatural to be weird, but that was just par for the course. " They usually do get pretty far, it's just a matter of who decides to actually come to the party. Your dad still gets invites on occassion and somehow, he never finds the time to show up. " He raised a curious eyebrow and then decided to answer her question. "You knocked on the door, were you not expecting someone to answer it. Yeah, my dad has gotten excuses for days, he probably could have done something."


    Today at 11:57 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby would look over at where she was glancing and had to ask. " Is that something we should be worrying about?" He asked, not sure what to make of the man.


    Today at 11:59 AM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack offered his own smile. " Hey Vianey, I should say that you look nice now, but I always hate that implies you don't always look nice. " He would be remiss to point out that it was weird to crush on someone who was way younger than him, but when you could be any age, it was more personality that drew you to a person. And she certainly had the most interesting one of any girl he had met.


    Today at 12:00 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Uh, thank you. So do you!" Viaeny said, then leaned a little closer with a mischievous grin, "But then, you can look any way you like, which is totally a huge advantage!" she said sotto voce, for his ears only.

    Jack offered a smile. " You're right about that, it is a total advantage. Technically, I can extend that to other people as well- in case you forgot about the maze from the other party," he pointed out.


    Today at 12:08 PM

  • Loveless:
    "Oh, that's just how it is.", Rosemarie added in with a matter-the-factly tone, "Time barely exists for my father and the soonest we accept that, the less disappointed we'll be about it." His comeback about the door had her widening her eyes for a bit, realizing the mistake. Duh, of course she had been expecting someone, she just hadn't been expecting him right away, before managing to reassure herself! "You know, what? Yeah, sure, I suppose it's my fault for turning around... And cool, the door is open now, so let's step in!", or she will- You know? As long as they can stop being awkward outdoors, it's fine!


    Today at 12:10 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Well..." Lliira said, "I...th-think he's...E-Eros...the...uh...god."


    Today at 12:10 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby looked over at her. " Well, my family always told me that there were two Eros. Is this the God of Desire or the God of Love/Lust? Because one of those is slightly more dangerous."


    Today at 12:12 PM

  • Diana:
    Jasmine might just be the only non-magical completely normal person there - and she had no idea. She was quite content with soaking in the romantic atmosphere, sipping pink champagne and picking out treats from the buffet table. Chocolate covered cherries? Her favorite! Music by Jason Mraz? Wonderful! "I think we should take advantage and dance!" she whispered to Valerian while tugging his sleeve gently.


    Today at 12:13 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob nodded. " I kind of figured that time doesn't exist for the man, he always seem to be going from one place to another- it always seem like he barely has any time for anything, though, I guess time is a thing that most people take for granted," he replied, glancing over at his dad for a moment, silently wondering something that he didn't dare say aloud. " Please come in, my dad put so much stuff into the party that he would made if you didn't come in.'


    Today at 12:15 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Eros was just quietly watching and making sure that the things people desired was actually what they needed. He briefly moved toward Valerian and slide a ring box in his pocket.


    Today at 12:16 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Ooh...that's true!" Viaeny said. Literally infinite opportunities for mischief! But...maybe not right now. Lliira and Tholby were standing together, but looking more concerned than romantic. She followed their gaze. Besides a look of supreme confidence, Hunky Muscle Shirt Guy didn't look especially dangerous.


    Today at 12:17 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack would glance over to where Vianey was looking. " Well, now, I know that he does occassionally try to advance desires, but I don't think I've seen him at a party. That's my friend, Eros Valentno, god of desire, not to be confused with Eros, the son of Aphrodite. Made that mistake once and let's say that how I wound up desiring to kiss a fox for a few hours. "


    Today at 12:20 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "I've...never m-met either p-puh-personally before," Lliira said. She knew a lot more about the Egyptian, Sumerian, Gnostic, and Celtic pantheons than the Greek, and reading a god's aura was not in the same category as reading a human's.


    Today at 12:21 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Okaaay, note to self," Viaeny said, "don't make that mistake!"


    Today at 12:22 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby would look over at her. "I can't say that I met either of them myself. I just know that Eros the god of desire tends to focus on making desires come true and hates being confused for his younger counterpart. And then Eros, the god of love/lust doesn't care, but is more about people fucking each other." It was too bad Tholby didn't know the rating of the CHARP was T for teen.


    Today at 12:24 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack smiled. " Yeah, don't ever make the mistake."


    Today at 12:24 PM

  • Loveless:
    This time it had been Rosemarie's turn to nod, even if possibly missing part of the context, "I know right?? A bit infuriating, if only out of envy..." To be throwing parties all year long- There's so much else one could do with that much free time! Though it wasn't as if she disliked these events as much as the rest of them. "Ahahahaha, I can imagine that having a conversation outside instead would be rather frustrating for the poor man~!", which made it sound a bit more tempting, but naah, "Well then, I'm ready to be shown around the place! ...Putting aside that I've been here before, of course."


    Today at 12:26 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob would glance over at all the different things. "Do you want to have some food first? Or maybe- do you want to see what my dad set up? We got like a kissing booth, a couple of couple games and a counting sweetheart game. I actually know the exact number so that last one is kind of unfair to everyone else. " He would glance over to the corner. " And apparently the god of desire just decided to show up, you know what, compared to every other crazy thing- he's pretty tame."


    Today at 12:30 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "I agree," Valerian said. He was seeing an awful lot of familiar faces at this party, so chances were high that something unusual was going to happen. There were certain things he wanted to accomplish first. Dancing was at the top of that list. Then--suddenly he noticed the absence of a certain weight that was supposed to be in his pocket. Oh NOOOOOOOOOOO! I forgot the ring at home! SERIOUSLY?! How could I DO that?! ...Thinking about Jasmine, and not about rings, that's how, he thought. He'd been too caught up in planning the words he'd say and imagining the joy he hoped he'd see on her face. Right, so, land on feet, make new pl-- As he was leading Jasmine to the dance floor, a guy brushed past him, or him past the guy. Then, to his surprise, he felt the presence of the ring box. He surreptitiously slipped his hand in his pocket--yes, it was the familiar form of the box he'd fidgeted with a lot since he'd bought it. Smiling with relief, he took Jasmine into his arms and started into the dance. Now, to find a perfect way...


    Today at 12:35 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Lliira nodded. "At least...he's not Priapus?" Lliira didn't know this Charp was rated T for Teen either, but she would have been grateful if she did. "So...h-how have you b-been?"


    Today at 12:37 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby looked over at her. ' Yeah, I guess that is a pro for the night. I've been pretty good, really wished that we had more time to spend together though. Do you want to try one of those couple games?'


    Today at 12:40 PM

  • Loveless:
    Alright, note to self, the kissing booth is off of limits right away. Couple games? Rosemarie tried to picture what those would be like and suddenly realized that, they knew very little about each other. Which was totally fine because they were not a couple! Just friends. ...But that was still weird, wasn't it? Not that these parties were ever not weird. Might as well make weird the new normal! "As long as it's nothing like last year's Easter...", she shrugged, Jack was lucky that she hadn't seen him yet because that grudge was going to stay! "Checking the menu seems like an easy start", finally more relaxed, she held up her arm for him to hold in a playful, purposeful switch of roles,"Shall we?"


    Today at 12:42 PM


  • Diana:
    He's so nervous!, Jasmine thought to herself, trying to contain her amusement. With how these parties kept going sideways, that wasn't a surprise. She too was a little jumpy that maybe something nefarious would pop out, or some unwanted danger would rear it's head. Of course it was hard to worry too much when Valerian smiled like he did. Jasmine really did love to dance with him. "I think I'm glad we came out tonight. It's really kind of lovely here..."


    Today at 12:42 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob would look over at her and wondered what they were, but asking that seemed weird. It wasn't like they were together, they were just two teens who wound up at the same parties because one of their dads hosted it and the other was a diplomat. But yet, sometimes he wanted there to be something more. He let her take his arm. " Yeah, I mean, I think you missed it, but someone at the party managed to tame the trickster guy, he's somewhere here today actually, I haven't really been following the guest list." There was chocolate, chocolate and chocolate on the menu.


    Today at 12:47 PM

  • Loveless:
    Oh great. Just the one guy she never wanted to see again. "Tame? As in, like a pet or...??", it didn't matter what the answer was though, Rosemarie already had Jack down as someone to avoid as most as possible. Otherwise, Valerian might be wrong about there being no punches thrown today- ...That's a lot of chocolate. After a brief moment of consideration, she came to the conclusion that this should have been predicted. Normally Marie would pass buuuuut, tentatively she reached for the most decorated, fancy-looking one at the table. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad? Sometimes having an expensive taste was troublesome.


    Today at 12:56 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "So...matchmaking schemes?" Viaeny whispered to Jack. She could see at least two pairs of 'targets' in the room who looked like they needed a boost. The grownups too, maybe, but they looked more like they had things sorted.


    Today at 12:57 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob offered his own shrug. " Tame as in- make him less chaotic. Have you ever read the SIsters Grimm? I know seems like a random question, but it's like that. Love makes people do strange things." He would take a moment to look at the chocolate and then somehow get a chocolate pretzel out of this mess. He would look over at her and was quiet for a moment.


    Today at 1:04 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    " I think we're better with the one I tried setting up before. Pretty sure the other girl still wants to punch me in the face for the game I did a while back at Easter."


    Today at 1:05 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Eros would move over to Jaxob and Rosemarie, gently going for a knocking motion that would put Valerian down on one knee as he passed.


    Today at 1:05 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob with one free hand moved Eros away from them.


    Today at 1:10 PM

  • Loveless:
    Rosemarie went immediately silent as well. Or rather, she forced herself to be silent, going as far as to bite her tongue. There was no way she was going to say what was in her mind right now, even less when they were at a Valentine's Day party! "Oh uhh, I only really read the obligatory ones, for class!", not entirely a lie since anything else was more experimental than anything, or books she was gifted for some reason. Where in the world did she seem like a reading person?? To avoid having to answer any more weird questions, Marie stuffed the chocolate in her mouth not even trying to nibble first. It wasn't bad at least.


    Today at 1:13 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob would offer a shrug. " I mean, fair enough, I try to not read books that aren't fun either, can't say that I ever enjoyed the ones from class though. "


    Today at 1:16 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Eros groaned. " Oh, we're doing this the hard way then."


    Today at 1:17 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "I suppose," Valerian said. "But for me, it's not the place, it's the company," he said, smiling at Jasmine. Somebody bumped him, and he was down on one knee! That wasn't exactly how he planned for it to happen (well, he hadn't exactly planned it yet, because none of his ideas thus far could live up to his notion of the perfection Jasmine deserved. But her face--he had to go through with it now! Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a cylindrical gold filigree ring box and opened it to reveal a ring he hoped would be everything she dreamed of.


    Today at 1:19 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Eros would pull out a set of arrows from his back. He would flip through them. Love, lust, nope, that wasn't their problem. It was definitely communication. Truth arrow. That would have to do for now. He would throw both of them, making them invisible before doing that so neither Jaxob or Rosemarie would see them.


    Today at 1:22 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Uh, yeah...maybe not go that over the top," Viaeny whispered. She'd heard about the 'Claim Your Boy' ordeal from Lliira. The poor girl was still embarrassed about that. But...oddly, Jack didn't seem as interested in messing with the other partygoers. His attention appeared to be on Viaeny herself. "So...uh...you have a Trickster goddess who's supposed to be meeting you here or something?"


    Today at 1:25 PM

  • Loveless:
    After chewing and swallowing the chocolate properly, Rosemarie retook the reigns of the conversation, thankful that they had gone past that other subject. "Honestly, me neither... I know I read them and filled out tests about the stories, but I can barely put the plots to their names. I'm just not into reading like that..."


    Today at 1:27 PM

  • Diana:
    "Oh!" For moment she'd had a little panic, for he'd dropped to his knee so suddenly and without any warning that Jasmine was afraid that maybe something terrible had happened and he'd been shot by an arrow or poisoned or something equally as disastrous! The delicate box and lovely delicate ring were the last things she expected. So relieved was Jasmine, that instead of saying Yes she practically fell to the floor herself to throw her arms around Valerian and give him a wonderful kiss. Almost not T for Teen.


    Today at 1:27 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "C-coup-ples games?" Lliira stammerd. "O...Okay..." she said, blushing.


    Today at 1:29 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack was quiet for a moment. " Yeah, I may have just gone a wee bit over the top for that one," he replied, looking over at her and was quiet for a moent. " No, can't say that I do. I know this probably comes as less of a surprise but very few other gods or people actually like me. My brand of mischief is just a bit too much for them, figured it was better to just hang out. I assume you are meeting some boy here."


    Today at 1:31 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    I'll....take...this...as...a...yes? Valerian thought, sort of, seeing as thinking wasn't exactly his strong suit at the moment. He could only hold her tight and kiss her back. Almost not T for Teen.


    Today at 1:32 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob was quiet for a moment. " Excluding like my magic trick stuff, and books about magical stuff, books have never quite been my thing either. It does feel weird that I didn't have a birthday party this year, but it's whatever."


    Today at 1:32 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby looked over at her. " I mean- unless you want to do something else. They seem pretty tame."


    Today at 1:33 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Yes. No. Not anyone in particular," Viaeny said. "It's...uh, nice to meet you here...I mean... Come onnnnnn, Viaeny, communication is your friggin job! "OK...this is weird...but seeing as we have matching outfits and all...OK, I...kinda like you...but it's weird, because you're, like a bazillion years old or whatever, and also...I've read some mythology, and things kinda don't tend to work out for the mortal in...well, you know...relationshps...with not-mortals."


    Today at 1:38 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Tame?" Lliira said. She glanced over at the couple who'd just had an obviously successful proposal, and were presenting the model for not-so-tame at the moment. "D-duh-did you want-t t-to...k-kiss?"


    Today at 1:41 PM

  • Loveless:
    Annnnd now she felt guilty. Which was a strange feeling to have, Rosemarie couldn't say that it was around often... Once more she went silent, unable to think of a reply. Well, she got a phone call for hers, maybe something sent through the mail- If anything Jaxob shouldn't be complaining about his missed party once, but! That was selfish to say. Nothing would come of comparing their lives like this, so she could only keep it to herself.


    Today at 1:42 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack was quiet for a moment. " Well, actually, I'm not half as old as you would think. Jack is just a title that's been past around for like a long time. The spirit of mischief aspect is like a bazillion years old. I've only been a Jack since I was like 7 for the past ten or so years. It's something that makes me easy to become mortal again. Bonus points, I do get to keep my powers even if I do decided to go mortal."


    Today at 1:42 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby was quiet for a moment and then would glance over at her. " You know what, sure."


    Today at 1:43 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob was quiet for a moment. " It's just weird that we don't know each other despite hanging out for so long. Like you really get me, but I- it's complicated because I want to tell you I like you and I do, but no time ever seems right to do that-"


    Today at 1:44 PM

  • Loveless:
    ...W-w-w-wait what??! Had Rosemarie heard that right?? Nononono- That was a dream, right? Someone was messing up with them! Were the chocolates enchanted? It had to be something like that! ...Right? "W-wait! I- That went by so quick-! Did you really mean to say that???"


    Today at 1:51 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob shrugged. " I'm not sure if I meant to say it, but it's been said and now it can't be unsaid. We have known each other for almost a year and a half,," Jaxob pointed out to her


    Today at 1:52 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "So...it's more like you're 17, making adjustments for relativistic time dilation, traversing planar boundaries and magical effects?" Viaeny said. "And I could totally still tease other girls who fantasize about being Bella Whatsername in the Twilight books?" she said with an impish grin. Caution not being her greatest talent, she thought: Here goes nothin' and stood on her toes to give Jack a little kiss.


    Today at 1:55 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "O...O...kay," Lliira said. How do I even do this? she thought. Turning her face up, she pursed her lips and made the effort of will it took to look Tholby in the eye instead of looking away.


    Today at 1:56 PM

  • Diana:
    How long had Jasmine and Valerian been making out on the dance floor? Well, long enough that Jasmine was definitely a bit embarrassed by her own nonsense when she did stop kissing him. Blushing three shades of red, she made sure that she and Valerian got up off the floor and then she held out her hand so he could put the ring on it. "It's so beautiful! It's really so strange so perfect, I've never seen anything like it-- OH! And Yes! Yes I'll marry you, Val! I'll marry you forever!"


    Today at 1:57 PM

  • Loveless:
    If she hadn't had replies to throw back before, then now she really didn't have any. Through stammers, half-syllables and similars, Rosemarie's shock was so great that she could only freeze in place as if having seen a ghost. Actually, the ghost would be preferable at this point, this was much, much more complicated. What should she even say back to this?! Is there anything that can even be said??


    Today at 1:58 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack offered a smile. ' Yeah, excluding all of that and the magic of looking older, yes, I'm more like seventeen than anything else. Also, I hate that I know this, but it's Swan. Let's say that is the right name and don't ask how I know it," he replied, blushing a bit from the kiss.


    Today at 1:59 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby was careful and would gently kiss her making things just a bit easier for her to work with,


    Today at 1:59 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Eros would walk over to the girl and then just give her a look. " I know that I am a relative stranger to what just happened, but perhaps expressing if you feel the same way or not might jus be a good start. Just a suggestion of course."


    Today at 2:01 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Though he was an academic, well-known (by those who knew of him) to be able to talk at great length when he got caught up in excitement about a topic, Valerian was completely speechless. He could only take Jasmine in his arms and gently kiss her again; more sweetness, less intensity, but with no less feeling.


    Today at 2:03 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Lliira's eyes fluttered closed. Hesitantly, nervously, she put her arms around Tholby as electric thrills shot through her. Her First! Kiss! was everything she could have hoped for.


    Today at 2:11 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    "Your secret's safe with me!" Viaeny said. "Actually..." she said in hushed tones like a spy passing secrets, "I think it's cool when a guy likes romance...the whole 'Me man, me only like explosions and guns' thing is stupid."


    Today at 2:17 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Tholby would offer his own smile as this was the first kiss with someone that he cared about. " This is honestly the best first kiss that I have ever had."


    Today at 2:25 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack offered a smile. " Honestly, I find the men who claim they only like guns and explosions are often the most queer men around. I prefer people who can be both and there are very few people who can be, he replied back to her.


    Today at 2:27 PM

  • Zarko Straadi:
    Lliira could only nod quickly in agreement eyes sparkling. Then her expression turned quizzical: "You've...had more than one first kiss?"


    Today at 2:28 PM

  • Loveless:
    The suggestion seemed to be a well-needed final push, as Rosemarie finally stared back at Jaxob, firmly, no longer with the expression of a lost puppy shocked with fear. Though maybe, not even the God himself expected the kind of answer that would start it all, "I would! But I don't think that I have the right to..." From there on what can only be described as a dam of thoughts and feeling broke loose, sentence after sentence, idea after idea chained one after the other like a machine gun at a pace faster than any of them could properly react to it.


    Today at 2:29 PM

  • Loveless:
    "I missed you! I really did, there was not a moment I didn't glance at my phone hoping I'd get a text, and well, it kinda did at the start but the more invites I couldn't RSPV, I felt we grew further apart? And to be honest, I was scared that you were angry or upset about it. I should have refused, I should have been more assertive about the things I wanted to do, but this also all the time I get with my father so the choice is always hard for many many reasons."; "When I let your birthday pass because I've been busy all day with Student Council stuff, I was devastated. But it was already late, night-time and it really felt like I lost the opportunity, or it was too late. I take pride in these things! So it... hurt, a lot and I never talked about it because it still makes me upset."; "But the worst thing is that, I've been visiting all these universities in preparation to moving into one and I realized that, we might be about to be even more apart and I hate that! But I know what else to do about that. I thought about giving you a copy of Aiso so we could play together but it won't be the same thing and time it's just ticking and maybe I'm wasting it because I didn't want to compromise with something for that short of a time? But also I don't really- When you mentioned the cheezy 'people do crazy things for love thing', I just, don't feel the same... About that"; "I think it's overrated? And poorly interpreted as some magic that solves everything and it's just dumb. It feels dumb to me, but I didn't want to be the skeptical one in the middle of the Valentine's Day party, but I'm saying it now so who cares?-"


    Today at 2:30 PM

  • Loveless:
    "The point is, I think I like you too and it's scary. These feelings are scary and new and I'm not exactly an affectionate person, what if I hurt you? What if we hurt each other?? We've faced- So many weird supernatural things, but somehow this is the thing that makes me terrified, not them."

    Tholby shook his head. " Yes, technically. But the first one happened when someone drugged me at party and I don't think that should entirely count because it was against my will."


    Today at 2:38 PM

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jaxob was at the one who was at a loss for words for once as Eros would remove the invisible arrows from both of them without either noticing. " I guess all of that is fair and yeah, love is complicated and maybe I'm afraid of the same thing. I thought my dads were perfect and you saw what happened at the first part and maybe I just got scare of letting people in because being with someone is scary."

    Viaeny gave a snort of laughter. "Not that there's anything wrong with being queer!" she was quick to add. "It's cool, but people should, you know, be able to accept themselves as they are. And other people too."

    "I'm...n-not goo-good at talking. B-but I'm g-good at listening," Lliira said.

  • LuckycoolHawk9:
    Jack smiled and nodded. " Nope, nothing wrong at all about that, I think you got two friends who are like that. Yeah, life would be so much easier if people just accepted other people," Jack mused for a second. " Probably why the supernatural and real world tend not to mix. "

  • Loveless:
    ...What the fuck had come over her to say all those things?? Just as shocked at her behavior, Rosemarie didn't seem as reassured about the whole matter like he was. "This isn't a game, Jaxob... There are no HP bars, I can't train my stats to solve my failures and we don't restore all damage simply by resting. Heck, I won't even know if I'm doing is right or wrong unless you tell me as much!" ....... "And there's still college. It was a lot easier when there were no other people to be attached to, but now? ...I don't know."

Of course, there's always going to be other people. That's life- people get.... people get...." Jaxob paused for a beat, his mind raising through a thousand different thoughts, thinking about his dad. How he had thrown parties for as long as he could remember. Since he was a baby. How it was so static. How they kept going wrong. " Older and they tend to grow together. Well, most people- sorry, I just thought of something weird. Has my dad ever looked any different to you?"

    That was a weird question, and as sudden as it was, Rosemarie gasped as it came up, like something had been staring them at their face for the longest time, but only now they were actually seeing it. "...I really, don't think so??", and then tried to locate their aforementioned host in the middle of the crowd-

    All this making out in a public place was all well and good, but also perhaps too much for Jasmine who honestly just wanted to be alone with Valerian now somewhere safe and comfortable - like home. Filled with nothing but giggles and joy, she whispered something absolutely not T for Teen in Valerian's ear, and took his hand to lead him out the exit. This was one party they were leaving without being involved in the scary things!

    Valerian's eyebrows rose at Jasmine's, but he gave her a lopsided grin of agreement. He hurried to open the doors (to the house, then to his car) for her. From that point on, it was a challenge to keep from violating the speed limits too badly... For perhaps the first time ever, a party at the Campbell house went off perfectly!

    "Me too," Lliira said. Both god and trickster seemed pleased with the results of the party, and unlikely to cause cosmic devastation, so why not go out and enjoy a lovely evening?

    "Looks like ours isn't the only mutual acceptance happening today," Viaeny said, glancing around at the other couples in the room, then giving Jack a little hug.

    Michael would be standing on the banister and looking down at the party. He looked the same as he had looked from the first party she had been at. If you asked previous party guests, the same he had looked for as long as he had hosted this party. And considering how some of the guests were in their ninities, it was a long time. Once Val and Jasmine left, the door slammed shut behind them and then magically sealed. (but not before Eros slide himself out)" Well, I guess it's times for a party one last time."

    Rosemarie reached into her purse, searching for her clawed brass knuckles almost by instinct, "Welp, crazy party host first, issues with scheduling and LDR will be dealt with later!"

    Viaeny looked up at the guy leaning on the bannister. "Who's that guy?" she asked Jack. His words were pretty ominous. But if he was just some guy, he wouldn't be much of a threat. She'd been studying her book on magic and practicing the meditations. And of course, Jack.

    Lliira looked up. Oh. So this is where it turns weird and dangerous, she thought. "D-do you k-now wha-what he m-mm-means by 'one l-last-t time?"

    Jack looked up at the man. " Doctor Michael "Mickey" Campbell, host of this party for as long as I can remember and I've been to a few of them when I was younger as well, he's just a necromancer... I think. Though the door sealing tells me something much darker is a foot."
