Event Log: Stepford Summer

Who: Everyone participating in the event
What: The Stepford Summer event!
Where: Across the city
When: July 16th-July 25th
Warnings: None!

Good morning, neighbor!

On the 16th, everyone wakes up feeling a little more... complete. The sun is shining, your bed is nice and comfortable and when you throw off the blankets, your perfect dog (probably named Spot) is sitting eagerly at your feet, waiting to be fed and walked.

The newspaper smacks against your porch and the paper boy calls out in hello as he cycles off further down the road. Sure, you can't actually read the strange symbols on the paper, but it's nice to have the ritual of it in the first place. Your parent or your sibling or your significant other is busy making pancakes in the kitchen when you come in, filling the room with the smell of delicious cooking. Yum!

The rest of the day is much like this. You straighten your tie, adjust your blazer and head off to work at a normal place, doing normal things. So what if you work with a guy who's actually a demon, or a seven foot tall elf? That's normal, isn't it?

There are cracks in the illusion, of course, but whether you're able to put it together is on you. Why would you want to, anyway? You have so many great relatives and an awesome support system, you're drinking awesome coffee every morning, and maybe you'll treat yourself to some ice cream at night before bed. What could be better?

Certainly not the cave. You don't want to remember that, do you?

[The days seem much longer than they have any right to be, that much Rey wagers. Tonight seems like a good night to sit in and drink before bed, despite it being a work night. She's got a lot on her mind, and alcohol sounds like just about the only thing to silence her anxiety.]

Got any samplers?

[She'd like to know if the goods are any... good, before she buys.]
closerift: (held to another)

yes good

[ Cecily knows a lot about alcohol and having a lot on your mind, and is therefore a good person to see when you are looking to fix one with the other. ]

I can pour you some of whichever bottle you'd like to try, if that's what you mean. If it isn't, then, no, I haven't prepared flights of everything in the store.

[ She smiles good-naturedly, though, assuming that hadn't been what her customer meant. ]

That's... yes.

[Wait.]

Bottles, I mean. Not the... [Sigh.] Would just like to try something.

[Look, it's been a long day, okay? People set shit on fire and think it's funny and it's not funny at all.]

[ Cecily just smiles knowingly at the other woman, chuckling. ]

That's all well and good, but if you'd like something in particular, you should pick it out. ... Unless you'd prefer that I surprise you?
