Event Log: The Seven Days of Hadriel

Who: All characters participating in the event!
What: The event log for the Seven Days of Hadriel event
Where: All over the city!
When: April 17th-April 23rd
Warnings: Delicious food, a week full of fun, and nothing terrible at all.


After everything that went down when the city split, the residents of Hadriel deserve a break - and the gods are trying to give them one. For a week, each god will be taking one day to throw an event of their choosing. Nothing is mandatory, nothing is designed to manipulate, so relax and have a good time!

On April 17th, Hope is holding a grand feast. The dried and canned food usually found in the shops is replaced with tables of freshly-made dishes, ready to be eaten. There are foods of all kinds here, familiar and very strange, and each different one is marked with its ingredients. There's bound to be something you'll like, so stuff your face, take a box or three of leftovers home, and gain a few pounds!

On April 18th, a racetrack appears near the moped lot, and Tranquility starts holding moped races! There will be quite a few different races held across the day, so stop by any time - drawn by the thrilling revving of moped motors, no doubt - and race your fast friends and your furious enemies for the grand prize: bragging rights.

On April 19th, Rage takes over the arena for that most brutal and vicious of fights, a pillow war. Anyone stopping by will find stacks of pillows of various shapes, sizes, and densities, all ready to be pick up and used to wallop the person next to you in the face. So work out some of that aggression!

On April 20th, Confusion sets up her hedge maze near the orchard. This twisty, confusing labyrinth can keep you occupied for quite awhile - though if you get too confused or lost, you can always tap out and be instantly transported back to the entrance! Do your best, though, and you might make it to the end - where two lucky winners get a magical compass prize, and the rest get, well, a less magical one. Your two lucky winners this time are Sans and Richie Gecko! Enjoy your prizes!

On April 21st, Love is ready to help all of you find a little more love in your lives. Stop by the Speakeasy (the owners of which are super stoked about this) to get the name of someone to go on a romantic (or platonic!) date with. Successful dates not guaranteed, but Love is not terrible at their job - the name you'll get will, at the very least, be someone you can get along with.

On April 22nd the library gets a little livelier with Delight's open mic! Stop by to show off your singing skills, display your master poetry craftsmanship, or tell a funny story. Got another talent you want to show off? Sure! Jugging flaming batons, messing up amateur magic tricks, sword-swallowing - everything's welcome!

And finally, on April 23rd, Sorrow will close the week with a formal masquerade. Masks are not required, but formalwear is, and can be found throughout the shops. Spend the evening listening to tasteful music, nibbling at refreshments, and maybe finally getting a dance with that guy, girl, or non-gendered being of your dreams. Dance the night away, assured that no one will be turning into a pumpkin, and wake up the next morning feeling relaxed and appreciated for all that you've done for the gods.

Attend all the events, none at all, or just a few! It's entirely up to you.


► This log covers April 17th-April 23rd.
► Feel free to make your own logs, as well
► Please tag headers of threads with content warnings where they apply
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!
► If you somehow manage to die during a completely non-dangerous week, please let us know here, and rethink your life choices.

April 23rd | OTA Ball

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-20 01:02 am (UTC)(link)
It isn't the first time Rey has dressed up in formal garb. On more than one occasion, a past self had attended regimental dinners, which required one to be well-groomed and at their best behavior. Of course, she might have had a hand in this sort of thing back then... same when her brother had her once accompany him to an opera.

Tonight was no different. Bianca, having picked up a sleeveless, monochromatic dress for her, can be seen tending to Rey from time to time in their solitary moments. Despite her seemingly elegant attire, her footwear remains the same -- but maybe one isn't prone to looking down at her feet to find her trudging about a formal event in combat boots. Not that one would want to point that out to a beefed up soldier-type. Or, they could, but it's seriously ill-advised.

As it is, it's nothing short of a miracle to have seen her disposition recover from the fiery temper in the wake of Love's dating shenanigans at Rey's own Speakeasy. Thanks to her girlfriend, she's maintained a level disposition since then.

When not seen with Bianca, Rey wanders, being less than social unless prompted to dance. Drinks have helped ease her into the routine, as she is liable to grab a unsuspecting soul by the wrist and pull them onto the dancefloor. A seemingly uncharacteristic behavior of hers, if not for the fact that her inhibitions have been increasingly less pressing in the back of her mind after several drinks too many.

They say you only live once. In Rey's case, she's lived many times. This is just the first time she's been able to do something for herself, and no one else.

Can you blame her?

Though Nick has spent the night mostly off the dance floor, instead patrolling around the Colosseum in case something goes wrong, he is dressed for the occasion, as Rey wouldn't let him go without a suit if she had to wear a dress. He didn't argue; while he prefers his detective getup, he has to admit the suit makes him feel good. Human, even. And hell, he might not get the chance to wear something this nice ever again.

He would dare to say he's having a pretty good time, even with all the trouble that led to this night.

With that in mind, he decides that before the night ends, maybe he oughtta thank the gal who made sure he cleaned up. Rey seems like he's having a pretty good time herself, courtesy of Bianca -- and the drinks she's had -- so he makes his way over to her when she's not occupied, putting a hand on her shoulder to get her attention.

"Mind if I have a dance?"

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-21 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
Grateful to see Nick up and about more than anything, Rey just smiles when she turns towards him. Most people would end up with a fist to their face for touching her before announcing their identity, but family has that way about them...

"I'd love to," she says, glib after so many drinks, but she'd be that way no matter how much she'd consumed. Seeing Nick here, dressed up as he is -- it's a good thing. "Aren't you glad that I fixed up that leg now?"

Totally worth killing a few things in the tunnels, isn't it?

[personal profile] synthedick 2017-04-21 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
It might've been worth it, if not for seeing Nick up and about, then maybe for the smile that question puts on his face.

"I guess it helps a little," he remarks with a smirk, offering his hand to her before sliding the other around her side. He's only danced a handful of times in the Commonwealth, but there was a time when he was pretty good at it; despite not being his own, the old memories come back when he needs them, the gestures and movements more familiar than they should be for a machine.

"You seem like you're having a good time," he notes.
circumitus: i broke the girl's bed. i will not apologize about bragging. (i'ma do me)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-22 02:47 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh come on, where would you be without me?" she teases, mouth drawing into a grin of her own as she takes his hand.

It's hard to say whether the memories she has of past formal affairs are her own or not, but Rey has enough to know a little on what she's doing. A problem she knows she shares with Nick in some respect.

In any case, just how difficult can it be?

Resting her free hand over Nick's shoulder as she joins him on the dance floor, her expression softens. "It's been... Things are all right, right now. I think."
synthedick: (♣ curtain call)

[personal profile] synthedick 2017-04-23 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
Nick gives her a soft smile of his own, one absolutely genuine. "Yeah," he agrees quietly, turning in time with the music. "I'd say so. The city's back together, people are back together..."

Families, too.

"I'm surprised a guy named Sorrow would throw a shindig like this, but I can't say I'm not a little grateful. It's not every day we get the chance to get all gussied up and dance the night away, now is it?"
circumitus: Petting the cat and listening to "you've got a friend". This is why I smoke weed. To make sense of situations like this. (wow when will she ever be this happy)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-23 06:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Something tells Rey that Nick didn't get his moves from that wasteland she once saw in his dream, in the same way that she doesn't need to wonder where she got her own. It's no lindy hop, but it's something she knows and can keep up with.

A sharp laugh escapes her at Nick's last comment regarding the ball's host. "I wouldn't be so surprised. Sorrow's got his shit together better than the rest of his siblings."

Better than most of the people residing in Hadriel, even. Rey hasn't forgotten the agreements they had, not just for the Speakeasy but the information he's been more forthcoming with as well.

"At any rate, you look pretty good all gussied up like that," she says, making a playful jab at Nick's vocabulary. "You clean up well."

[personal profile] synthedick 2017-04-23 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"You don't find outfits like this much in the Commonwealth," he returns with a smirk, letting the music guide his movements. They're smooth, like well-oiled clockwork.

"And if you did," he continues, "they'd just end up as worn as that detective getup of mine. This doesn't suit me as much, but it's not bad for an evening on the town."

"Nice boots," and, yup, he immediately takes the seriously ill-advised route. The truth is, Connor's in a pretty good mood himself, but that just makes him more prone to making catty remarks. He catches her once she's separated from Bianca, since she's doing that whole being less than social thing. Connor can be extra social for everyone.

Also he's a little tipsy.

But hes not so awful that he doesn't follow up, "That is a cute dress though. Let me guess - the girl friend" there's a definite space but in that way that it could definitely also be implying he thinks Bianca and Rey are an item, "picked that out and you were in charge of footwear."
circumitus: (i'll feed your fingertips to wolverines)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-23 07:40 pm (UTC)(link)
It would be giving the people of Hadriel too little credit to assume no one would take the said ill-advised route. And it isn't like he's wrong, either. Her boots are pretty damn nice. Rey even cleaned them before they got here, so not to track the usual dirt and mud and whatever mess she gets herself in on the regular.

"Naturally. It wouldn't be very fun for anyone to try and flounder around in stilettos."

Never mind the fact that there are more styles of fancy shoes that don't have heels for days. Shut up.

Either way, if there's any scorn in her response, she masks it well. Rey is not in any such disposition where she is going to be swift to offend. No one is killing her buzz. Fucking no one.
iustitiae: (42)

[personal profile] iustitiae 2017-04-23 07:58 pm (UTC)(link)
"That's real, stilettos seem awful." His sister had just given up on them after awhile, and honestly, he's shocked at the number of women in his field who manage to pull them off while running around trying to get papers filed and playing court olympics. Kudos to them, honestly.

"Maybe you'll start a new trend. This time next year everyone'll be going dress and combat boots."
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-24 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
In Rey's case, it would probably suck for everyone involved. Both for herself, and those getting trampled by the aforementioned stilettos.

"Everyone, huh?" She looks at him, and pretends to muse deeply for a moment. "Does that mean you'd consider rocking the dress and combat boots look, too?"

Because, if so, she's not judging.
iustitiae: (43)

[personal profile] iustitiae 2017-05-02 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"You know, you're the second person tonight who has suggested putting me in a dress. I know my hips are nice, but..." Connor laughs. Not that he's against men wearing dresses, it's just not his particular scene.
circumitus: I CAN QUIT ANY FUCKING TIME I WANT. (i'm not drunk YOU'RE drunk)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-06 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
"You think so? Didn't even notice."

Rey doesn't spend much time looking at hips -- least of all a man's.

She just shrugs. Whatever you say, bro.

glacius: (!)

!!! LEAPS ON

[personal profile] glacius 2017-04-29 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
Rey is not the only one enjoying the festivities; having been enticed into attending by the prospect of celebrating and reconnecting with his friends, Glacius has already made quite a few passes around the dance floor. Now the ice alien has decided to take a break and dip away briefly, to get away from all the watchful human eyes filling the Colosseum and maybe get a cup of water to rehydrate himself before seeking more of his friends out...

As it turns out, he's not going to have to do much looking at all. No sooner has the alien stepped off to the sidelines than a warm and sturdy hand closes around his wrist, tugging him back towards the dancefloor. Glacius gives a startled squawk and starts to try to dig his toes into the dirt, not too keen about having his personal space invaded without being given a chance to give his consent... but as he swiveled his head around and he sees not only Rey, but Rey actually wearing a smile and looking like she's having a good time, he finds any protests dying in his throat. He can't think of an instance where he's seen her as anything but stern, steeled.

Apparently this formal gathering really is the break from the usual torments that they all need.

A tentative smile forming on his face, Glacius allows himself to be dragged, his own steps picking up to follow the woman's now. "Oh, no--I'm being accosted by a human-like being! Should I be worried? Or will mercy be exercised, as I am thrown into a far less deadly dance this time?"
circumitus: (i'll feed your fingertips to wolverines)

<333 hey, you!

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-04-29 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Surely, it's a nice change of pace. Whether or not her social bravado comes from the alcohol or certain events, who knows. Who cares, really? Bianca and Nick both have done wonders to lift her mood, so that likely helped.

Which is why she's here now, mingling about the Colosseum-turned-ballroom while grabbing onto an ice alien's arm.

"There is no mercy for you," she teases. "Come on. You look like you've got some moves, big limbs and all."

This could either end in disaster, hilarity, or fun. Or maybe all of the above.
glacius: (Glad to hear it.)

[personal profile] glacius 2017-05-01 01:35 pm (UTC)(link)
"You non-aliens are all the same," Glacius bemoans--but in a tone that is clearly joking. "Fine, then--I will meet my fate bravely!"

He may or may not be a very talented dancer; despite their stoicism, it is important to his people's culture. The big ice alien steps onto the dance floor after Rey, standing tall, waiting to see if she is going to lead off now that she's snatched him up like this.
circumitus: ...'cause my cocaine successfully went through airport security. (doing a small happy dance)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-01 09:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Pfft. "Technically speaking, aren't we all aliens here?"

Given that the only natives of this place are the godlike beings that govern it.

"Either way, your sportsmanship is appreciated. Not every big lug would be so noble as to make such a sacrifice." A true martyr you are, Glacius.

As the music changes into something a little more upbeat, Rey starts to move in time to the tune. One probably wouldn't think it, but her spryness and quick reflexes always help her to move fluidly, even after a few drinks. She's less drunk and more buzzed and giddy.
glacius: (I suppose so.)

[personal profile] glacius 2017-05-02 01:58 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, I specifically meant all you who are not members of my species... but we have not yet been named in your tongue, so I am forced to be general. You do, however, have a point." Not that it stopped most of the humans here from treating him like he was the only outsider, but now is not the time to dig into that.

Instead he allows the rhythm of the music to occupy his attention, his motions falling into time with it just as effortlessly as Rey. After a few minutes of this he can't help but arch a brow and quirk a grin her way. "I know I am probably not one to be talking, but you don't strike me as the sort to have much practice or care for this sort of thing. It is nice to see."
circumitus: (i'll feed your fingertips to wolverines)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-02 02:30 pm (UTC)(link)
It wouldn't be too difficult to hold the argument that there aren't really any one of Rey's 'species' here either -- Nick is pretty close, but the synthetics of his world are still fairly different from what Rey is. But still, she gets Glacius' point as well. She might not be human, but she has the luxury of not getting weird looks for non-human traits, passing just enough to get by. That's how it was supposed to be. And she doesn't typically get asked what she is based on appearances alone.

"There's more to being a soldier than guns and combat," Rey replies, a slight twitch of her lip pulling into a small grin as she moves without missing a beat. "Believe it or not, have been dragged to these types of events before. Some even required more formalities than this, at the risk of 'cruel and unusual' punishment."

[BALL YAY]

[personal profile] wormintheglass 2017-05-03 09:45 am (UTC)(link)
"You are positively ravishing, dearheart."

Bianca, conversely, wears her sleekly sombre tuxedo with a pair of egregiously sparkly black pumps with heels high enough to look Rey in the eye. Her own disposition is glittering, joyously social. Everything delights her, and Rey, looking the part of a triumphal battle goddess in her silver and scars, delights her more than anything.

She doesn't hog Rey for every dance. Bianca is social butterfly enough to want to flit, and besides she misses out on watching Rey from across the floor if she insists on being up in her face constantly.

She absolutely insists on the first dance, though.
circumitus: Exact quote "let's see how high we can get." (we had 15 min before last call.)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-03 02:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe to the surprise of many, Rey does not awkwardly shuffle or stagger around the scene. Though she is by no means what one would dub a 'party animal', she knows a bit on how to conduct one's behavior during such an event.

That includes how much to drink, and how much to interact. While not anywhere near subdued as her usual deposition would entail, her behavior matches the setup despite the stark contrast of her muscle tone and attire.

She doesn't even balk or blush as she is the one in a dress, and her date in the pantsuit. After all, Rey was more than accepting of the outfit Bianca had picked for her.

"I could say the same for you." Rey then pretends to take a moment for some deep deliberation on that thought. "Actually, not 'could' -- I will! You are fucking sexy in that."
wormintheglass: (shoulders)

[personal profile] wormintheglass 2017-05-06 05:09 pm (UTC)(link)
"I am, aren't I?"

She grins up at Rey when she says it, eyes sparkling with complicity.

"Or rather, we are."

She almost doesn't say it aloud, but Rey is far too ready to believe the worst of herself already, and that's a habit Bianca's determined to break. She whirls them out onto the floor, setting a pace that might be punishing for anyone ordinarily human; but she has absolute confidence in Rey's capacity to handle it.

"This is reminding me why I used to be an adventuress."
circumitus: (it takes a lot to laugh)

[personal profile] circumitus 2017-05-07 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
It's hard not to flush a little at Bianca's unabashed flattery. Not that Rey doesn't mind it, after everything they've talked about and went through at this point, but...

There are some things she doesn't know she'll ever get used to. And not knowing, for once, does not leave her with trepidation but suspense. Which isn't always a bad thing.

Much like this dance, as Rey has only a split second to determine Bianca's movements in order to stay in synch with the other woman. Yes, she's got this.

"You been to many of these types of things before?"
wormintheglass: (amused)

[personal profile] wormintheglass 2017-05-21 02:43 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, a few."

By which she means a few thousand; but she shies away from thinking too hard about the past. There are times when Bianca loves this city, and she's wary of ruining one of those moments by dwelling on her former freedom of movement.

She tilts her face up to smile into Rey's eyes. She doesn't slow down at all.

"But never with you. Should you like to make a habit of it, do you think?"
