Getting the party started
Mon May 7, 2018 10:55

Myfanwy had already decided that whatever drinks Marissa provided would be acceptable. She didn’t like to imbibe pesticides, and would infinitely prefer planet friendly food whenever it was available, but sometimes she had necessarily needed to make allowances. When she had attended birthday parties of friends in Wales, in had been fairly easy finding vegetarian food to eat from the buffet, difficult finding vegan food, and impossible to know where any of it had come from. Similarly, on her first day at Rocky Mountain, Myffi had eaten food from the Diner because there had been no other option. She thought Marissa had probably done her best to find the beverages Myffi had requested, and that the house elves had done their best to accommodate her, so that would be enough for now. “Yes, great, thanks,” she said enthusiastically, peering into the bag. A bit of booze, a bit of fruit and a bit of fizz and they’d have themselves a lush drink to celebrate Marissa’s achievement.

“What’s Ruben gonna think when he finds out you’re sharing with me?”Marissa asked, although she didn’t seem very worried, as she was grinning. Myffi took one of the glasses from Marissa as the redhead said “I hope he’s not a jerk about it.”

Myfanwy made a noise that was somewhere between a snort and a chuckle. “Ruben’s always a jerk,” she laughed with a strong Welsh lilt as she magically removed the stopper from her bottle. “He’s like a puppy that refuses to learn tricks,” the Lyra said affectionately, “and he attacks the postman the moment you let him off the leash.” She grinned at Marissa as she poured some organic vodka into each of the two glasses. “I bet he likes it when you rub his belly too,” Myffi wrinkled her nose and put the stopper back on the bottle.

“He’s told Kaye about it,” the sixth year said with a little more seriousness, “so he can’t object if I want to tell anyone about it.” Or, he could object, and Myffi sort of expected that he would, if she even told him that she’d shared the drink with Marissa, but Myffi was not concerned by Ruben’s possessive hold over their shared venture. If he wanted to cut her out now she’d told him how to make booze properly, then screw him, he was graduating in a few months, anyway. “He’ll make a fuss and have a huff then get over it,” she predicted. “Well worth us enjoying a drink. You deserve it.”

  • Looking forward to it! - Marissa Kendrick, Sun May 6 12:52
    Marissa grew up at Rocky Mountain International, so the house elves knew her very well. They also knew at this point not to question why she needed things, because she’d always skirt around the... more
    • Getting the party started - Myfanwy, Mon May 7 10:55
      • A party of two! - Marissa, Mon May 7 12:14
        “True,” Marissa agreed with a laugh. She and Ruben were pretty okay now. Myffi was just at school, so most of what happened between the redhead and the other Aquila probably flew over her head.... more
        • It’s a good number - Myffi, Mon May 7 15:12
          “Cheers,” Myffi agreed as she clinked her mixed drink against Marissa’s. She took a sip and enjoyed the fizz tickling her tongue before the moonshine made it tingle. Marissa seemed to like it, too,... more
          • A great number - Marissa, Tue May 8 15:26
            See, this is why she tested the waters by moving a little closer. Myffi was clearly freaked out. Oh no . As soon as she noticed the other girl get a little uncomfortable, Marissa moved back too,... more
            • Two's company - Myffi, Tue May 8 15:49
              Marissa moved back a little, and that was better. She’d definitely seemed down earlier, when Myffi found her in the rec centre, and she had cheered up a bit since the envelope had brought her good... more
              • We don't need a crowd - Marissa, Tue May 8 16:19
                And just like that, things felt a little better. This was almost familiar territory. Marissa felt more like herself like this. She’d spent plenty of time at Lia Harper’s club over midterm, and she... more
                • Not right now - Myffi, Fri May 11 04:12
                  Myfanwy hadn’t done much kissing before. Before she’d left Wales, Gareth had kissed her, and that had been fun. She’d fancied him a bit, but so had Alison, so neither of them had ever done anything... more
                  • Agreed - Marissa , Sat May 19 20:14
                    “That was nice.” Marissa smiled in agreement. It was definitely nice. She missed doing stuff like this. Being with Danny was nice. The Aquila enjoyed being someone’s person, in a way she never really ... more
                    • Yup - Myffi, Sun May 20 16:00
                      Even though she’d been so excited to get her acceptable letter, Marissa seemed like she didn’t want to talk about college at all. She starting getting all frowny and withdrawn again. Myffi wished she ... more
                      • Glad we agree! - Marissa, Mon May 21 15:58
                        Marissa resisted the urge to shrug off Myffi’s very valid point. The other girl wasn’t the first to tell her this, and she wouldn’t be the last. The red-head knew that grades weren’t everything. They ... more
