Rose Farnon
A party well thrown, if I do say so myself

As usual, Rose Farnon had been a strong second-in-command to Marissa Kendrick’s lead in the preparation for the party. This time, though, the thing was totally legit so there was much less coordinating to do. Rose had still helped to charm decorations and organize the food the house-elves helped them with, and had given some input on the playlist, but by and large it was a much easier even to plan than the back-to-school bash had been. For bonus points, she didn’t even have to try to convince Marissa not to bring the firewhiskey this time; since it was an all-ages, staff invited kind of shindig, even Rose’s best friend knew better than to involve alcohol.

Although Marissa was all about dressing up for Halloween (it was a Kendrick thing, apparently) Rose was not about that life. In an attempt to make her roommate happy, the blonde girl had drawn some sort of snake symbol on her shoulder before slipping into a strappy black crop-top and black jeans with heeled boots. Apparently it was some sort of costume from some sort of television show Marissa had watched with Kit over the summer break. Rose had no idea what it was, but it let her wear one of her favorite crop tops and involved minimal effort, so the Aquila was good to go on that front.

Much to her amusement, Dade had approached her earlier that week asking for help on a Halloween costume. Apparently he’d met some girl in his year who had somehow - possibly with divine intervention - convinced her little brother to be social and go to Marissa’s party. Rose had withheld the snickering until after she had helped Dade put together a bowtruckle costume, but once she was back in her room she bemusedly explained the entire situation to Marissa. Of the two Farnon boys, Dade was definitely not the one they’d expected to want to go to the party.

Since this party required much less set-up, Rose actually wasn’t there much earlier than anybody else. She made her rounds, double-checking some things and readjusting the charms on some other things, but overall it seemed like things were good. She spotted Dade arrive looking absolutely adorable in his bowtruckle outfit and grinned before sneaking over to where Marissa was. The other fifth year had said something about Shifty maybe showing up, but Rose hadn’t seen him yet.

“Merlin, have you seen Dade?” Rose asked, coming up behind Marissa. “He looks so adorable I don’t know what to do with myself.”

    • This could be a challenge - Dardanius Dubois, Tue Jan 31 08:50
      It was a day of contrasts and of firsts. Marissa’s passageway parties were secret, and against the rules, with illicit substances and dubious intentions. Marissa’s family-friendly Halloween party was ... more

    • So apparently my costume is a villain? - Lucien Dubois, Mon Jan 30 00:47
      Halloween wasn’t his favourite holiday, but it wasn’t the worst, either. As the middle sibling, he’d never had the opportunity to come up with his own costume idea prior to attending RMI; for every... more

        It was Halloween, which meant that Francine was being more over-enthusiastic than normal. Nick had agreed months earlier to a group costume, because that was how far in advance his sister planned for ... more
        • Doesn't quite sound "okay" to me - Lucien , Mon Jan 30 13:42
          Oh, shit, again. From the corner of his eye, he could see Nick coming over. This had the potential to be the first real interaction they’d had in, well, a while, and he wholly expected the worst to... more

            • Good for you. - Lucien, Tue Jan 31 20:03
              Lucien couldn’t tell whether his roommate’s remark about paint toxicity was out of genuine concern, in large part because Nick looked like he was on the verge of laughter. His annoyance at this was... more
              • Don't get all green with envy now - Nick, Tue Jan 31 21:01
                All right, Lucien was touchy tonight apparently. Nick fought the urge to roll his eyes as Lucien disregarded the option of bleach. It wasn’t exactly what Nick would suggest as a primary go-to, but... more
                • Lucien supposed he wasn’t too surprised to hear that Francine had been a Halloween enthusiast since early childhood. It fit perfectly with her persona. Didn’t fit his at all, as he well knew, but... more

                    • Here! Have some candy! - Shifty Eyes, Wed Feb 1 20:08
                      He sat on top of the rock wall, blending into his surroundings. All that could be seen were his signature yellow eyes, and that was only if the ickle children were looking really, really hard. Oh,... more
                      • ....No. - Lucien, Wed Feb 1 23:35
                        “You think so? Can’t wait to be enlightened,” Lucien responded, his sarcasm deadpan like usual. It was therefore likely only semi-recognizeable as being sarcastic, which was again something quite... more
    • The legend of Francine! - Francine Holtz, Sun Jan 29 19:36
      It was a truth universally understood and accepted (sorry not sorry, Nick) that Francine Loved Halloween. It was nothing to do with the horror or scary aspects - as one might imagine based on the... more

          Holland Keene was everything she had seen in the movie Mean Girls , except for two very important details: Holland was neither mean nor a girl. Sure, they lived in the girls’ quarters of Lyra, as she ... more

      Remington’s family was fascinated by Halloween. Well, her mom was. Her dad, being an American Muggle, thought the holiday was perfectly normal. Her mom was from Mexico, and she was a witch. Halloween ... more
    • Witness me being here. - Claudia Dubois, Sat Jan 28 15:44
      Claudia had never been to a party at RMI before. The only reason she had conceded to come to the Hallowe’en party at the Quidditch Pitch was that it seemed apparent that everyone - staff and families ... more
