+ FOURTH WALL EVENT: HODGEPODGE PARTY +

Who: E V E R Y O N E
Where: The Second Mansion - now with additional floors!
When: Sept 9th to Sept 10th
Rating: G to PG-13 (please label higher ratings, thank you!)
Summary: Can't make up your mind about which party to attend? Why not come to A L L OF THEM? And don't forget to have a look at the Fourth Wall Master Post for event rules, puzzle clues, and more places to mingle!
The Story:


On the morning of September 9th, guests will find all of the parties seem to have vanished - all except one. The Second Mansion is still there, however it has doubled in size from three floors to six.

The first three are the same as they were were before - the red restaurants, the heart-themed party, the white bedrooms. Nothing has changed there.

The fourth floor contains the entire throne room party, as though it was lifted right out of the throne room and transplanted there instead. The real (or Mirror, rather) throne room is just a throne room once more.

The fifth floor holds the beach party, including an ocean. Somehow. It seems to stretch on and on beyond the confines of the room it's in. The real beach is vacant.

And then the sixth floor contains the forest party, and complete with the patch of forest it came from. Presumably there's a ceiling somewhere, but it's too far off to be seen. The real forest, meanwhile, is peaceful and partyless once more.

It's all very strange, as though all the parties were drawn toward the second mansion like a magnet. Even stranger, all of the clues are still in place at each party, despite the odd change in location. It's as though the parties have converged into one massive hodgepodge of a party, to try and bring them all together.

To try and bring the guests together.

The last two nights of the party, at exactly midnight, fireworks will be set off the roof of the second mansion, for all to enjoy. ♥

A. Second Floor: It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing~

[It took this entire time for Napstablook to get over their jitters snd take to the stage and start playing a selection of songs from their current favorite genre. They can't help but bop a little to the music. Feel free to chat up the shy ghost here or make requests! They're in a good mood, so the probably (probably) won't phase away.

B. Fourth Floor: I hate myself for being so mean to you~

[There are two ghosts are talking softly in a corner, in matching yet different black and white masks- one with a rounded shape and one with jagged edges. You can't quite hear what they're saying, but the one with rounded edges suddenly takes off, the other following closely behind. Their voices get louder, louder than you've ever heard either of them talk before (which is to say, not very loud.)

The one in the jagged mask is saying,]

"-like you always do.... pretend i don't exist....
pretend you didn't initialize this conversation yourself....
jus trun away, that's definitely going to help.... it sure has before....
you're definitely not internalizing any of this...."


[While the other one is saying, voice slowly getting more desperate,]
"-don't really have any relatives that are still ghosts.... i just thought we could talk....
i'll leave you alone.... i'm sorry, i didn't....
i didn't know you didn't like me.....
though now that i think about, that's kind of a no brainer...... i'm sorry.... just let me leave...."

[If left uninterrupted, the one in the jagged mask will mutter]"wow... pathetic..." [and stop following the one in the round mask, who will continue to float away as fast as they can, tears filling their eyes.]

{{ooc: Please specify which ghost you'd like to interact with or if you'd like to talk to them both, interrupting their argument}}


C. Roof, midnight: Come on let your colors burst~

[The loud noises scare them at first, but they're far too curious not to see what's happening. The noises still make them wince, but they can't look away. What are these things? It's so, so frightening, utterly terrifying and yet.
And yet.
The beauty of the cascading lights and colors are so phenomenal, so brilliant and magical and terrifying and mysterious, all at once.

So appropriate for this "wonderland" place, it's practically a metaphor for this confusing world that they've been snatched into.

The weight of the past month or so hits them hard, and suddenly, they're crying, tears glittering with tiny reflections of the display. They're not sure if they're sad or happy or scared or just plain tired but one thing is for sure, they're amazed. At everything that's happened, of the future ahead of them, at the display of lights and colors in front of them, right here, right now.]

Well. A ghost that wasn't undead. That's a first.]

Oh.

[ Finally, some cheerful music she can wiggle around and dance to like nobody's watching!

Okay, so Coraline's not exactly the mansion's best dancer. What she's doing seems to be a combination of hopping around in time to the swing and flailing, exhuberant moves that would probably get her laughed out of the middle school dance. But for what she lacks in coordination, she makes up for in enthusiasm!

After awhile, she notices who- or more importantly what is picking out the music. That, thinks Coraline, is interesting! She's seen enough creepy things in her time that a sheet ghost isn't too spooky, and the music sounds so... upbeat that it must be a nice kind of ghost, so she bounces up towards the DJ's table till she's within yelling range, cupping hands around her mouth. Hopefully she can be heard over those cool big headphones.]


Heeeeey! [ Coraline frantically waves, beaming. ] Excuse me!

I just wanted you to know.... This is really fun music you've been playing!


[ Is the ghost even listening? Oh well- While she's still feeling brave enough to be outgoing, Coraline's going to keep talking loudly]

I knew some ghost-children once, but I've never met a real ghost DJ before, so this is really exciting!

[personal profile] mettatonvevo 2016-09-11 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
[This event has officially reached awful tier, despite Mettaton's best efforts to make it not so. Watching so many of his friends get hurt and potentially die has taken its toll on the star more than he cares to admit. But at least there are fireworks, something he has always enjoyed watching since coming to the Surface.

When he steps out to watch the lights go, he sees his cousin crying and immediately he feels a rush of relief. You're alive. You're safe.

As much as he wants to rush over and hug them though, he decides not to. Instead he opts to walk over and stand next to them, giving them time to stop crying if they so desire.]


Hey there, Blooky. How do you like the fireworks?

[ as far as mysteries go, one that involves multiple parties doesn't tend to set off cordelia's alarms so much as excite her a little bit on a primal california-girl level. so multiple parties in one? has her definitely in attendance, eager to meet more of these newcomers, and definitely showing off her latest infinite closet summon (and those legs), in the process.

she wanders from floor to floor and can be encountered at any of the parties, but it's the indoor beach that sort of startles her, and she can be seen holding a champagne flute brought up from below and surveying the optical illusion with raised eyebrows. ]


I mean, David Copperfield could probably do that with mirrors.

James Potter | Harry Potter | Resident, OTA

[personal profile] pottershotter 2016-09-09 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[This event is lasting too long. So many people have been pulled to Wonderland and so many people are staying much longer than they normally would for something like this. By James' count this is...day nine? Day nine sounds about right.

Maybe he shouldn't be getting his hopes up. This can't be a good thing that so many people are returning to Wonderland with their memories of it, but...James can't help himself. After all, he's been here so long. He's made so many friends he's doomed to never see again, friends who would normally never remember him even if they came back to Wonderland.

He shouldn't be happy about this, but he misses them all so much. He misses everyone who's passed through Wonderland and met him. So many people have made such a huge impact and the chance to meet them again without having to start all over again is too much for James to resist.

So, James spends much of the ninth and the tenth in the second mansion, cycling through different parties, keeping his eyes open for any familiar faces at all.

Very few others who have been around seem even remotely familiar, but she knows the wizard with glases when she spots him, and is practically bouncing in her rainboots with hope. ]

James, hi! Hello! Remember me?!

[ Martha's also been doing her due diligence in keeping an eye out for people that she knows, and she's found a handful of them, but it's shocking to her just how many of Wonderland's residents she no longer recognizes.

This trip has gone on much longer than she'd expected, and yet she finds it hard to believe she'll be here for good. Wonderland has a way that it operates amongst all the madness, and this doesn't fit.

She's most impressed by the beach party, at the way that an entire ocean (or at least a strip of it) has been fit into one room. The Doctor would have found this brilliant, would have wanted to determine if it was the same technology that made the TARDIS function. It is a bit sad that he's not here. Martha's used to him being involved in her life getting turned upside-down like this.

As she looks away from the water, though, she spots someone else wandering across the shoreline. It takes her a few moments of staring to be sure, but she remembers him with crystal clarity.

He's not just a character from a beloved book series brought to life, she's her friend. ]

A: Beach Party!
[Okay, so this is weird. Possibly even more than Wonderland's usual brand of weirdness. Because how can there be an ocean in a building. Or a forest, but it's the ocean that gets him most. The wide open vast blue ocean.

...in the middle of a building. It's like one of those Escher pictures. Defying logic. That's what Wonderland is about though, right?

He settles himself out on the beach with a drink and tries not to think about it too much and just enjoy the sun.]



B: Forest party!
[It reminds Sam a little of Abel, what with the fairy lights and bonfires and candles everywhere. Y'know, except without the moaning of zombies giving a certain ambiance. But solar lights had been one of the best ways to light the place at night, and if those lights happened to be salvaged from Christmas shops... well, they took what they could get.

It's really pretty though, and Sam spends the afternoon climbing into various treehouses and checking out the woods like he hadn't before. It's probably safer now. Hopefully. Hopefully safer. You can never tell with Wonderland.

And when night falls? There's nothing quite like sitting around a campfire with hot chocolate and marshmallows.]



C: Wandering the halls!
[Sam is determined to enjoy it as much as he can. There's too much to see and Wonderland can get a bit dull at times. Time slips away so easily between events. He can be found wandering through the floors, enjoying the club or relaxing on the fluffy couches upstairs.]

[Death can be found in any of the parties throughout the last two days. Call it fashionably, but he'd say he arrived at the perfect moment.

In the throne room, Death can be found enjoying some sort of red-coloured, bubbling drink and wearing an ornate skull mask. His robe, in this party anyway, are a deep, rich crimson.

The beach party finds him lounging on the beach, wearing novelty sunglasses and a straw hat with little ceramic fish hanging off the oversized brim. There's a cocktail planted firmly in the sand next to him; the drink resembles a sugary rainbow, and there's a tiny paper umbrella in it.

The forest party may not feature Death in any kind of special outfit, but he can be found sitting at one of the campfires during the evening. He's even roasting marshmallows and hot dogs as he listens to ghost stories.]

[Nageki has spoken with Death before. A different Death that looked like a skeleton of a bird and was a train conductor. This is the first time Nageki has tried to roast marshmallows and he hasn't been doing a very good job of it so far. The first one caught on fire and turned into a black lump while the next two fell into the ashes of the campfire.

He turns to Death.]


Excuse me, sir. How do you get your marshmallows to stay on the stick?

[He's mostly relaxed and accepted that this event isn't going to kill him. Probably. He's also steadfastly ignoring the talk that he'd had with the other version of him. He's not sure which is worse; it being real or it being a hallucination. If it was, it was one of the most realistic ones he's ever seen.

He's trying to enjoy himself as much as possible, even if the idea of an ocean and a forest inside a building is unsettling as fuck and makes him uneasy. He can still be found relaxing on the beach or next to one of the bonfires. It's soothing. Maybe he'll be able to sleep, even if it's just a few hours nap next to the bonfire or in one of the tree houses.]

Avoiding Wash would be better, but given their last interaction, that would likely in tern only blow up in their faces again. So he drops onto the sand, holding two beers and offers one to Wash.]

[personal profile] thinblueline 2016-09-11 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[ All good things, as they say...

John is sensing that the end if near. In Wonderland, things don't last. It's as much a fact of life in the storybook world as anything could be. There's no death or taxes, but there is the everlasting, all-encompassing sense that this, too, shall pass. And just as this lengthy party comes to and end, so Blake knows his stay does as well.

It might be tomorrow, perhaps the next day, but soon enough he'll be gone again — away from his friends, these people he's come to see as family. Really, it's no wonder he's taken to being nostalgic.

Sitting off on his own, observing those mingling late over this celebration, he nurses a couple of beers and scratches hasty notes and drawings in his notebook, trying hard not to put out anything but a positive attitude. Maybe this is the end for him, but at least he's getting a chance to say goodbye. That's more than most people get around here...

[ James puts his back to the wall beside Blake, a half-finished beer in his hand. He's got a baseball cap pulled low over his eyes and he's wearing too many loose-fitting layers, but the party is enough of a mix that he blends in just fine.

There's no way to know if Blake knows him or remembers him - or can even tell him apart from the other guy - but James hopes. He knows the look of a man who's squaring up with the inevitable, and it would be good to talk to a friend. ]

When he'd woken up in the mansion days before, it had seemed just like any other day in Wonderland, except that his room had been moved. Strange events were common enough that he had approached this new development as calmly as any other. He'd checked on friends, and then he'd checked on the network chatter.

The first thing he notices on the network is the recent timestamp. He stares, not breathing for a moment. He's missed a lot of time that he has no way to account for. He went to sleep. It's inevitable that he'd wake up to the same old nightmare.

He's almost relieved when he finally gets through enough of the backlog to find Steve's announcement. It's awful to listen to but the fact remains: he was gone. No one was hurt by him. After that, it starts to sink in.

He's not going to be here long from the looks of things. Someone else has replaced him, anyway, and he seems like the real deal. It's all the more reason for James to steer clear. No one needs the complication or the heartache that his presence would bring.

He tells himself that for most of the event and he even manages to stick to it for a while... But in the end, he goes to the last of the parties anyway. He picks out familiar faces and pulls them aside to talk, or lets them find him and make the choice for themselves. He doesn't want to disappear again but he's long since squared with the lack of choice on that matter. This time, at least, he gets the chance to say goodbye. ]

[ The main reason that Steve comes to the second mansion is because it's suddenly gained three floors, and that's enough to capture anyone's attention. He heads inside to investigate first and foremost, and when he finds bizarre repeats of the previous parties somehow contained to the inside of the building, he doesn't really know what to make of it.

Since Steve hadn't been that interested in the parties the first time around, he doesn't spend much time on each floor. He simply wanders the areas in search of anything of interest, and then moves on.

When Steve reaches the sixth floor and the quiet cheer of the forest party, he can't help but take a closer look, trying to figure out where the ceiling might be. Or have they been transported somewhere else, somehow? He doubts he could begin to understand how it works, but he forgets all about that mystery when he spots Bucky standing under the shade of one of the tree houses.

Except something's different. His hair is cropped short, and while he could have decided it was time for a cut, it's impossible not to wonder.

Steve finds himself pulled closer to Bucky by some invisible force, his voice caught in his throat at first. When he finally manages to speak up, he doesn't sound particularly steady. ]
Bucky?

[ elena lost track of the puzzles.

her world kind of fell apart during this event, so. she can't begin to tell you what the clues revealed or why all the parties have merged into one. not everything is seclusion: the fireworks will lead elena to the roof on the night of the tenth. she decides to stick around for the show, with a pillow tucked at her back and a shawl sprawled across her lap.

the display of lights is beautiful, even if she can't bring herself to smile for it.

[damon hasn't been out and about much since he came back from the dead.

he browsed the network, learned one of the friends he made is gone, and stayed in. now... now he's found his way out of his room and onto the roof, shortly after elena does. his smirk is soft at the sight of her, shawl wrapped around her frame. his chest aches as if sensing- as if sensing.

he darts out, and returns a moment or two later. guess who has to-go cups with hot chocolate and a bag of popcorn.

he plops down beside her as he narrows his gaze. completely casual here.]


If you're going to watch the fireworks, you should watch them the right way, Elena.

[What draws Freya to the roof is more the solitude than a desire to see the fireworks display. She's never really been one for the noise, if she's to be honest with herself, and the celebrations always seemed like they didn't belong to her, and she was just a spectator passing through. Here, it isn't necessarily the same - it's as much her celebration as it is everyone else's, but that kind of mentality is hard to shake after centuries of repeating the same gestures.

When she sees Elena nearby, she doesn't necessarily want to disturb her, but she doesn't want her to think she's lurking in the shadows, either. Eventually she makes her way closer, moving to sit in the empty spot next to her.]


The colors have gotten much brighter since my first fireworks show.

[After the complete and utter mess that had been this week, Stefan can't bring himself to celebrate. So he had settled for sitting on the rooftop with his Polaroids long before the fireworks had begun. Setting each and every one of them individually, he takes a moment to etch each one into his memory. When Elena comes across him, he's cross-legged with a few in front of him:

Half of them are with friends from the Fleet. He's playing cards with Yosuke in the Paisley's med bay, or he's chilling with Vima, and he's even leaning on Clay Terran's shoulder after a particularly rough night. He even has Alex Russo making faces at him (at the camera), though she doesn't seem to mind her photographer. His final picture is an awkward selfie with Max Caufield; she's all smiles and he's wrinkling his nose at the camera as if it'll explode on him any second.

He has pictures of the stars and planets too: the nebula hanging around his med bay window, or the desert planets he'd stopped by in the past month. His final picture is his interfaith center, poised so that the stars outside illuminate the people praying.

It takes him a moment to notice Elena, but when he does, he manages a small smile, one that doesn't reach his eyes.]
