Farrah Welsh
Why did I come???
Sat Nov 5, 2016 17:09

Farrah had been to all of two Halloween Parties in her life. One of them did not count since it had been one of her parents’ family friends and she had to sit there and endure her parents talking to adults for a full three hours. There had been other kids there, but Farrah didn’t know them and none of them seemed all too keen to speak with her, so she kept quiet and tried to keep her little sister, Corra, in line. That was never really easy to do. The second party she had ever been to had been her best friend’s back home. Only about fifteen people showed up (some of them her friend’s cousins), but it had still ended up being a lot of fun.

When Laila had first mentioned the party during their initial Spirit Club meeting, Farrah had written home to her mother asking for a costume to wear. It had taken her mother awhile to decide on one (apparently her mother was torn between keeping her a little girl and making her wear something cute, or letting her be a teenager by wearing something less childish but still cute) so the costume had only arrived a week or so before the party. Farrah groaned when she realized what it was that her mother picked out. The Tin Man. Or rather, Tin Lady. Wizard of Oz was her mother’s favorite movies so of course she would pick this. At least it wasn’t Dorothy or The Lion. Or worse, the Flying Monkey. And her mother had the sort of humor where she would have sent the Wicked Witch costume for a laugh.

Farrah helped set up for the party, wanting to pull her own wait with the group and she would help with the clean up too. She had been in good spirits about it all, but now that she was wearing the costume, which felt slightly too short and the hat making her feel dumb, she wasn’t so sure about it. Would Georgia come? She hadn’t seemed all that into any of this. What about Kellen? He didn’t seem all that into people in general. Would anyone even get the costume?

She nervously chewed on her lower lip as she stood, trying to decide if her stomach was up for her eating desserts or not, when someone approached her. She smiled nervously, “Hey, enjoying the party so far?” She asked awkwardly.

      Lily had taken good care to look fantastic for her first Hallowe’en party. She had taken the liberty of chopping her brown hair short, so short it was at the same length as her brother’s. Her mum... more

          Emerald wasn't one for parties and she probably wasn't going to stay here for too long. Still, she knew Kit was in Spirit Club and she decided it would be a nice gesture to support her roommate.... more
          • Can't please them all.Lily, Mon Nov 7 13:03
            Lily was thrilled that someone figured out her costume. The upperclass students seemed friendly and she was happy to chat with people outside of her class. "Yes, that's me!" she exclaimed, breaking... more
            • Are you kidding me?Emerald, Mon Nov 7 13:18
              Emerald was incensed as the Pecari rather cheerfully replied. She didn't even have the decency to look ashamed! If Emerald had been insulting someone and one of their relatives came by and called her ... more

                Uzu couldn't help but feel annoyed, one because Liac was an idiot that couldn't keep his volume to a minimum, but also because the two of them were now in the middle of something she would rather not ... more

                  Lily hadn't received the ill message before, but she certainly did by the older witch's rude comment. This whole pure-blood circle of snotty witches was contemptible and she just wanted to chat with... more

                    Uzume was impressed by the girl. No doubt being in Pecari suited her she thought to herself as she chuckled a little her younger's remark. Quite the show, but a duel really would have made the party... more

        In her head, Kit had put costume and Halloween to equal masquerade. She had read about masquerades in one of her books and had decided that she would be like the girl in the book. She had written... more

          Farrah wanted to run away. The girl whom she had started to talk to had a costume with such an intricate design and looked so well put together that Farrah felt like such a fraud in her costume. What ... more

            "Oh," Kit laughed, not realizing that no one could tell who she was. She lowered her mask. "Kit Reid of the Connecticut Reids. We're in Spirit Club together. I'm usually with my best friend, Ayla.... more
            • Alright, I'll hold you to thatFarrah, Sun Nov 6 07:45
              Farrah almost burst out laughing when Kit referenced her as being a 'cool older student'. Did she not know who Farrah was? She was the awkward, shy, alien looking girl who's roommate was actually... more
              • That's all right by me.Kit, Sun Nov 6 09:58
                The name didn’t come with any sort of title, so it was fair to say that Farrah was most likely not among the elite. To say that she wasn’t Pureblood, Kit couldn’t say. Though, there did seem to be... more

                  Kit was a very enthusiastic person and Farrah found her thinking that if she hadn’t heard her answer questions in class, she might have thought she was a better fit for Teppenpaw or Pecari rather... more
                  • Why try? Just do. :)Kit, Mon Nov 7 13:52
                    "Oh, I think it's in the library," Kit said, referring to the book. Working in the library, she had gotten to know it a little more intimately than if she had just studied there. Of course, most... more
                    • Farrah nodded. The book probably was in the library and she just never noticed it because she was too absorbed in all the magical books that she had yet to read or see before or know of in all the... more

        The Halloween Party was Ayla’s first big event as a Sonoran. It was also her first baking club event, fundraising committee event, and spirit club soiree. It was a really busy time for the first... more

          Ayla’s costume really was great, and part of Victor was now wishing that his costume could have included face paint. However, he did have a sword, a fact that didn’t seem likely to lose its charm... more

            “I’m glad you think so!” Ayla said cheerfully. Admittedly, she’d only had a hand in a portion of the baking, but she was pretty proud of her achievements, even if her icing piping needed more work.... more

              “I haven’t had one of the pumpkin cakes yet, but they’ll be the next thing I eat!” promised Victor. He had no dislikes when it came to food, and the pumpkin cakes really did sound yummy! “I can help... more

                Ayla bit her bottom lip, trying to stifle some of her enthusiasm when Victor said he’d try one of her cupcakes next. It was sweet of him to say, though she expected that he wouldn’t necessarily... more
                • I think you're cool too!Victor, Sun Nov 6 15:43
                  “Of course I would,” assured Victor, now very glad that he’d rashly offered to help Ayla. He liked the idea of reaching things for the smaller girl, and just generally being needed. Forget the other... more

                    Was it hot in the MARS room? It certainly felt that way to Ayla. So many things were running through her head, and the feelings...she couldn’t even begin to comprehend the feelings. Her cheeks were... more

            “Thank you,” Jemima smiled as Gia complimented her, relieved she didn’t seem to have made a faux pas in how she evaluated Gia’s outfit. Although it seemed it was a sensitive issue. Or at least,... more
