IO, SATURNALIA! | OPEN

Who: EVERYONE
Where: THE BALLROOM
When: THREE WHOLE DAYS - 12/17-12/19
Rating: PG-13 (or higher depending how rowdy you guys get)
Summary: IO, SATURNALIA! The party has arrived and it is here to stay for 72 hours straight of good food, gambling, dancing, drinking, singing, and so on and so forth!
The Story:

A few days into Ewaymas, on December 15th, everyone will wake up to a scroll outside their door. This scroll is an invitation to a Saturnalia celebration in two days, and everyone is welcome! If asked for clothing for the party, the closets will provide synthesis – brightly colored Roman robes – for the occasion, but the dress code is mostly just colorful and fun, if you choose to abide by it.

Starting on the 17th there will be a lavish feast in the ballroom, and food and drink are never in short supply. Drunkenness is encouraged, but there will be non-alcoholic beverages as well. There will be tables set up for gambling and dice games, music from a wide variety of worlds (specifically to encourage loud singing along and dancing all night - some are holiday remixes but others aren't), and areas for dancing and playing other games. The decorations are all in a rainbow of bright colors like the synthesis, with suns hanging up and candles floating in the air. Laurels and pileus will be available at the party for everyone to wear on their heads.

It's the kind of party that will get increasingly louder and rowdier...and it literally won't end for three whole days. Those prone to gluttony, greed, or even just escapism will find themselves not wanting to leave the party at all. There's always something to do and you can always just pass out of the floor when you're tired, right? Right! No one knows how to party like the Romans did. At the end of the day on the 19th though, all of the decorations and food will vanish and the party will abruptly come to an end.

Prose or [Action Brackets] are more than welcome, and if you have any questions please send them over to the FAQ thread for the event!

[Alex is drunk.

Only a little, really. Enough to lose that patina of self-imposed distance and scowling that's been keeping him holding everyone at arm's length since he got here. He's actually smirking, and not in a purely sardonic 'fuck everyone else' way.

He's half-slumped at one of the tables as he calls out idly to the nearest person who might listen.]


Yo, there's like - zero laws on drinking here. This is great.
thinblueline: ([±] sure do believe that)

[ This isn't Blake's first time encountering an underage drunk. Not even the first time in Wonderland, for that matter. In fact, he'd had a very interesting text exchange with James Potter that still amuses him to this day.

That being said, he doesn't immediately go the same route here.
]

Great, huh? [ John smirks. ] What're you drinkin'?
rosswood: (all they'd find would be teeth)

[personal profile] rosswood 2015-12-19 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Less underage and more the fact that literally no one is going to judge him for indulging in whatever the hell is in this drink. It tastes vaguely fruity. Does that make it girly? Fuck it, Alex doesn't care.

Maybe it's the lack of a beard. Always makes him look younger than he is.]


No idea. It's some kind of, um. [He swirls it experimentally.] It's not shots but I think it's some kind of wine, maybe?
thinblueline: ([±] reaching)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2015-12-23 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
[ Blake nods slowly. He hasn't bothered to drink much of the wine offerings — he's definitely a BYOB type — but Saturnalia's offering seems quite popular.

It's probably the attitude toward drinking that makes John think underage.

He offers out his hand.
]

John Blake. Most everyone just calls me Blake. [ Blake included. ]
rosswood: (that's not tomato juice)

Alex. [He leaves off the 'Kralie' teller. Despite being buzzed to all hell, he's still got enough wit to recognize that in a closed circle of acquaintances he doesn't want to get too comfy with everyone. At least, not immediately.]

Been here long?
thinblueline: by: heretics (dw) ([±] natural state)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2015-12-26 07:22 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, a while. Three years.

[ Something of a frown settles on his face as he crosses his arms. He hates thinking about the greater implications of being able to say as much, so he doesn't. Saturnalia hardly leaves any room for that kind of thinking, anyway. ]

Where're you from, Alex?
rosswood: (your editing lacks continuity)

[personal profile] rosswood 2015-12-26 07:26 am (UTC)(link)
[Alex whistles, long and slow.] Jesus. [Three years is a hell of a long time to be stuck in this hellhole, and now there's the gold star question.

He considers lying, but he's also nowhere near sober enough to remember whatever line of bullshit he might be able to come up with.

Truth it is. Or at least part of it.]


Alabama. Old U.S. of A. What about you?
thinblueline: by: heretics (dw) ([±] expect me to believe that?)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-04 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Gotham City.

[ Same planet, some country, at least. And maybe the same time period, too, if the vernacular is any indication. ]

How long've you been here?
rosswood: (a what a fucke)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-04 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
Couple days, I think. [He thinks. Yyyyyeah, something like that. He arrived here pretty recently.] So, y'know, still getting used to the whole Wonderland thing. Blows, right?

[He's buzzed enough to not catch onto the weirdness of Gotham, otherwise the nerd in him would be having a field day.] Been here long?
thinblueline: ([±] not so sure 'bout this)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-04 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
[ Fairly certain he'd already answered that question, Blake raises an eyebrow and leans against the wall. ]

Yeah, quite a while. [ And then a pause. ] How much've you had to drink?
rosswood: (that's not tomato juice)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-04 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
[Yepppppp that is definitely what's going on here. Oh god can the room stop please he'd like to get off this ride now.]

Um. Hard to say. [He frowns into his drink, then looks back up at...whatshisname. He's having a little trouble JOHN that was it john right absolutely.] Maybe I've had enough.
thinblueline: by: heretics (dw) ([±] keepin' an eye out)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-04 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
[ Blake raises a hand and gesture for Alex to come closer. He might be a little drunk himself, but the part of him that runs of instinct says he's obligated to help this one before he ends up underfoot. ]

C'mon, c'mon. Take a seat, I'll get you some water. It'll help.

[ Water, plenty of water, because there's a good chance he could use it, and it might help with the eventual hangover. ]
rosswood: (all they'd find would be teeth)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-04 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
M'good. M'good.

[Not really, but he's gotta retain his manful independence, doesn't he? He shrugs off the attention and manages to get to a chair of his own accord, thank you very much, look at all this self-reliant machismo.]

Really, m'fine. Alabama, remember?
thinblueline: ([±] whatcha dooooin'?)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-06 05:39 am (UTC)(link)
[ Yeah, yeah, so macho, totally the manliest of men, but... Blake will still walk away long enough to grab a glass and a pitcher of water. ]

You did mention it, yeah.

[ He sets down the pitcher and glass and takes a seat at the same table. ]

Got family back home in Alabama?
rosswood: (someone needs to learn white balance)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-06 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
Mmmnot a whole lot, no. Gotta dog.

[...had a dog. He shrinks a little at the memory, digging the butt of his palm into his eye rather viciously. He is not gonna cry, goddamnit. It had just been a shock to find her the way he did, gutted with bits of her strung up in bags all over his yard -

You know, on second thought, that water's not sounding like such a bad idea. He splashes a bit into the glass and drains half of it in one gulp.]


Thanks.
thinblueline: ([±] investigatin')

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-10 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
[ Blake doesn't need to be much more than a beat cop to sense the change in Alex. He's pleased to see the young man take up the water for that reason.

Taking this opportunity, John settles back in the chair and decides it can't hurt to keep the kid company a while.
]

No problem. Couple of aspirin before bed'll do you some good, too.
rosswood: but my lust for blood is (ghosts aren't real)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-10 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
Do the closets give out free drugs too? [Mmmmmmyeah and here comes the headache. He pinches at the bridge of his nose between thumb and forefinger and waits for it to fade.] Damn. I should've come here sooner.

[It's mostly a joke.

He'd still give anything to have never run into the things he encountered back home.]
thinblueline: ([±] you see my hair?)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-19 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ Funny enough, Blake knows for a fact that the closets give out all sorts of drugs. But see if he'll admit that any time soon. ]

It's... got its charms. That bein' said, everything in moderation.

[ He says it pointedly, not wanting Alex to miss his word of warning. It's easy to get carried away in Wonderland. ]

rosswood: if you don't have friends (how to make a movie)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-19 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
Mmyeah. Sure, man. Just keepin' all the good shit t'yourself, I bet.

[Wow, this room sure is rotating. He just needs it to stooooop. Stop. Stop? Please.

He is just gonna...go ahead and lie down on this bench-like chair, here. That's a thing, right? Yeah. It is remarkably comfortable. Very bed-like. Very comfy.]
thinblueline: ([±] ya don't say...)

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-01-19 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
[ Blake tries not to sigh, but even the atmosphere can't stop him from feeling like some kind of world-weary parent.

Muttering to himself, he takes off his jacket and drapes it over Alex and his luxury bed.
]

Here's hopin' you sleep through that hangover...
rosswood: (help me autotune jesus)

[personal profile] rosswood 2016-01-19 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
[And what a killer hangover it'll be. Luckily the rest of the party will drain that pain right away, or that's the vague hope. With too much ethanol in his system, he doesn't really stand a chance.

Alex likes to think he isn't a snorer.

He would be wrong.]
