A party!

OOC (Out of Character): Hi and welcome to the SA23 sandbox. This is just a social thread like you might post in the Labyrinth Gardens (as this one is set in), or one of the other non-class boards. Feel free to reply (click the "Post Reply" button below) as either the person talking to Ginger or just someone attending. Or you can make your own top level thread by clicking the "Post Message" on the Sandbox page. If you've got any questions, feel free to post them here or on the OOC or in Chatzy.
BIC (Back in Character):

Ginger was excited about today. May second! She was turning twelve! Birthdays were the best things ever, but this was the first year she didn't have any of her relatives nearby. Well, she supposed those seventh year twins were technically relatives, but they were New Hampshire Pierces and Ginger, quite frankly, was a little bit afraid of them. But! But there were loads of new friends around Sonora that she'd made since September, so she had told everyone she saw in class earlier in the day that it was her birthday and there would be cake in the Gardens after class let out, so here she was, in the Gardens, with cake.

The prairie elves had done a great job. She'd told them she wanted the icing to be the blue and pink of cotton candy and - well, they hadn't quite known what cotton candy was, but she'd been able to narrow the colors down to something approximating cotton candy colors for them, and it looked just totally delicious.

As people began to arrive, she greeted them and pointed out the cake, which the elves had kindly already cut up into nice sized pieces and put onto plates along with a napkin and a fork. "Grab cake! There's chocolate and vanilla, so take whatever you like. Also, I've got stuff for games over there, if you'd like!" She pointed over to where some balls and brooms were lying about in case anyone wanted to start a game of hot potato or keep away or broom tag or something.

After it seemed like most people had arrived, she abandoned her hostess duty and got a piece of chocolate cake for herself - it wasn't vegan, but she didn't really mind. She wasn't a stickler for her family's traditional diet, and it was kind of nice to have normal cake every once in a while.

"Hi," she greeted conversationally to one of the people who happened to be nearby. "Glad you could make it. When's your birthday?" Next year, she thought, maybe she'd throw birthday parties for all of her yearmates. That would be fun. People would know her as the birthday girl. It would be awesome.

      OOC: Hi Ginger Pierce, I'm here a little bit late, but pleasure to meet you! I really want to practice, so here I go :D BIC: If Sylvetta could actually separate her nose from the book page, maybe she ... more
      • Oui, a party. - Caelia Lucan, Fri Dec 19 19:14
        OOC: Hey, no worries. Because of something we call “fuzzy time” it allows us to reply to each other over a course of days while “In Character” the exchange happens over a couple of minutes. Great... more
        • Yes, a party! - Ginger Pierce, Fri Dec 19 22:11
          OOC: Yeah, what Caelia said. No rush on responses. You just post when you can, whether that be the same day or the next week, and the narrative continues as if no time passes in between. Caelia,... more
          • The conversation actually went on. - Sylvetta Vuong, Sat Dec 20 01:51
            OOC: I'm just a little bit nervous, but everything's OK now, thank you for the reassurance :D Also, hello Caelia! BIC: Hey, hey, hey, someone's doing the talky-talky, part of Sylvetta's brain nudged... more
            • Conversations tend to do that :) - Caelia Lucan, Tue Dec 23 15:57
              A non-egg, non-milk cake sounded horrid and Caelia scrunched up her face a little bit. She felt for Ginger who, though seemed to enjoy the rougher things in life like balls and outdoor games if her... more
              • I'm a talker - Ginger Pierce, Tue Dec 23 22:28
                OOC: Just as a note of etiquette, it is considered polite - and might be an actual site rule now, I'm not sure - to take turns in three(or more)-person threads, so you keep posting in the same order... more
                • Not much of a talker, but maybe acceptable - Sylvetta Vuong, Wed Dec 24 10:53
                  It took Sylvetta a whole three seconds to conjure up a plan of reaction to the new information - new? There really should be embarassment here - and she chose to blink at the obviously-not-Ginger... more
                  • An Interruption - Wujy, Mon Dec 29 13:24
                    Hot dog! Izzy thought to herself as she dressed for her first school party. My first invitation to a party for magic folks! She spritzed her wild curls with water and combed through them briefly,... more
