Hmm.. more social encounters...
Sat Apr 21, 2018 21:28

Gary was generally bummed out by the quarantine thing. He'd naturally been looking forward to heading home and seeing Dad again. He had all sorts of news to tell him, mostly about his D&D group, but there was that other issue that he wanted to talk to him about. Now he wasn't going to get that chance. Sure there was the whole Christmas thing as well that he was going to miss out on as well. Oh well, Christmas was nice and all, but it had never been really big, over-the-top event that he's heard about from other people. After getting the news, they had exchanged presents by owl, now it was just a matter of riding out the quarantine, and figuring out what to do with his other issue.

He'd spotted one of the flyers about the Christmas Eve party and decided to check it out. There wasn't much else to do, why not? Well, other than the fact that he didn't really have any gifts to bring, or a Christmas outfit or ugly sweater to wear. What kind of gift was he supposed to bring? Who was going to get it? What do you get that anyone would like, candy? He didn't have any candy, and he couldn't exactly run out to get anything. He had some spare dice, but he only knew a few people that might want those. Maybe he shouldn't go, this was getting complicated. No, he should go. He should try to be social. He grabbed one of his spare dice bags and wrapped it in a spare piece of paper that he turned bright colors, and headed for the party.

Upon his arrival, he saw a few people there already. Two he didn't really know, but the other two were some of his players; Ronin and Nefrig... err.. Lilly and Parker. They seemed to be socializing. He debated for a moment going over and joining in, but then decided against it. There was a small chance they could be talking about the game, and those conversations get a little awkward when the DM joins in on them. So instead he decided to wander around, whoever had set up the party had done a great job with the decorations and such. He found the snack table, picked up a few things, then began investigating the pile of board games. There were some here that he'd never heard of, were they from the magical community? Those had to be interesting, he wondered if he could find anyone to play a game with him. He opened one of the unfamiliar boxes and began checking out the instructions.

      To say that Raine had never been the biggest fan of school was something of an understatement. She had managed to become somewhat fond of Sonora because of the friends she had there but she still... more

                "Yeah, I talked to Kyte about it last year, I think." Isaac hadn't remembered that until Raine brought it up just then. "We were talking about tricks, but it's hard to get really good if you only go... more
