EVENT MINGLE: PUTTING THE "FUN" BACK IN "FUNERAL" / HOLES

Who: EVERYONE
What: The Putting the "Fun" Back Into Funeral/Thistle Do Nicely Holes Event Mingle Log
When: Days 415-416 (March 9-12)
Where: all across the city!
Rating: PG-13. Anything higher than that should be taken to a private log, please!

Day 415 (Mar. 9/10)
Not long after the message from the gods on the bracelets, all NPC shops in town will begin shutting down. It is late evening when the city's Natives begin heading toward Gefion Park, some alone, some clustered in small groups, but it seems like citizens of Asgard of all ages are headed that way. It is just before sunset when all of the gods and several thousand natives will stand grouped around the shore of the park's lake. Thor, looking oddly somber, will move to stand on a small podium, voice tight but magically amplified. His posture is straight, head held high, and he will cut a striking image as he speaks with a firm and magically amplified voice:

"We may be the gods of this realm, but we would be nothing without both of you: our people, and our visitors. Even in times of darkness, we mustn't allow ourselves to forget how brightly our lights can shine. In times of weakness and exhaustion, we only need cling to the memory of how strong we truly are. We will fight for the lost, and we will fight for each other. Until my father returns, I will act in his stead. We will continue to move ahead, if only because there is too much to lose if we don't. Salvation is within our grasp, and I will do everything I can to make sure we attain it."

Here Thor will clear his throat, pausing just long enough to wonder how apparent it is that Freyr wrote most of this speech.

"But now I invite you to lay your offerings into the longboats, offerings to the Natives of this world that have lost their lives in this war. Their sacrifices were not in vain, nor shall they be forgotten. In their names, we shall fight for Asgard, and for every world represented here, and for the countless that aren't."


The moment that the newly crowned Prince Regent stops speaking, Natives will place clothes and food and other trinkets inside the boat. Any Traveller with offerings will be given the chance to lay them in the boat then, before Hel sends it off to the center of the lake. It will stall there before bursting into bright flame. Smaller, match-sized flames will light all across the lake, one for every native soul that has left Asgard for Niflheim in the last two years, and they will not extinguish even in the light rainfall that begins into the evening.

After the flames are lit, however, the natives will be opening several dozen casks of different wines, meads, and ales. There will be bottles of harder liquors passed around and glasses given freely to anyone within arm's reach of a native. Time for a bonfire in the park! Anything is free game for this: there will be dancing, eating, body painting, the weaving of flowers into people's hair or into crowns, pretty much anything that is loose and vaguely intimate. The only thing that remains undisturbed is the lake, where the fires burn ceaselessly above the water. This is their farewell; they will drink, tell stories, and laugh their way all through the night.

Day 416 ( Mar. 11/12 )
The next morning, most of the natives will still be in the park, making sure none of that pesky alcohol remains in those barrels. They will take this second day to relax and clean up the park while they continue to drink, singing hymns and generally lending a hand to one another. Where yesterday was a big party, this is more like communal R&R. About halfway through the day, flowers of all types imaginable will begin to sprout from the ground. Many of them will sing along with the Native's hymns of remembrance, though they will linger after.

This is actually our Holes event for the month of March! These flowers will not just sprout at Gefion Park, however! When they first appear on Day 416, they will actually spring up just about everywhere, dirt or not. They may appear on a table, off a wall, or rooted in someone's freshly prepared sandwich. The flowers not in dirt will wilt after about a day. Following their first appearance, these flowers will continue to grow in the city anywhere flowers can grow.


Back at the party, however, everyone is on equal footing and gathered to respect their loved ones. For the time being, nothing else really matters.

They'll go back to their regularly scheduled monotony by sundown, the boat of offerings finally removed from the lake, though the candlelight flames will remain throughout the night and disappear by sunrise. In thanks for their support and continued sacrifice, the Travellers will find one gift from home in their rooms at midnight.

Vislor Turlough ; both days ; open!

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-11 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
Day 415
[Throughout the evening, Turlough is really not that much of a social butterfly. He has a drink, though he's only sipping at it, drinking it slowly. He only makes it through two drinks in the evening. And, of course, he'll gladly chat up anyone who wants to talk to him about the funeral, Asgard itself, his life, what have you.

But his mind keeps lingering back to the funeral itself. Of course, he put in an offering: food he had brought, as well as a small sketch of a certain goddess. He knew that Asgard was different from Earth, or Trion, or anywhere else he had been. But weren't funerals supposed to be a bit more solemn?

Add in the fact that he's not the best around large crowds, and Turlough mostly stays on the fringes of the event. Despite that fact, someone's managed to paint a vine and leaf pattern on his face. It looks utterly ridiculous with his complexion (which really, is probably another reason why he's not seeking out certain people.)
]

Day 416
[Turlough comes back, mostly to help clean, but honestly...he's as jittery as a jackrabbit in a den of coyotes. He received the Black Guardian's crystal as a "gift." Though it hasn't lit up yet, he still wonders why he got it and just what he would do if it did light up, if the Black Guardian did make contact. After all, he knew the man wasn't destroyed. Rejecting Enlightenment was only a temporary setback. And if the gods brought the Master here, who's to say that they wouldn't bring him here as well?

What this means is that Turlough's jumpy as hell and tenses up at any sudden noises. It's after one of these sudden noises that he whirls around, glaring at the person behind him, and whines,
] Don't do that!

[ The noise was Ame's fault. he was trying to roll an empty barrel of wine when he lost control of it and eventually the thing rolled around until it slammed against a tree.

When he hears Turlough, the wolf is a bit surprised, but he doesn't seem bothered by it ]


Mister Turlough, are you alright? [ he looks really... nervous? ]
failassassin: (oh that's how to cripple the TARDIS?)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-11 02:46 pm (UTC)(link)
[Turlough's expression relaxes a bit as he looks at Ame. There's no use snapping at him-after all, he liked Ame. He didn't want to give off the wrong impression.]

I'm fine, [Turlough responded, jamming his hands into his pockets, forgetting for a moment that the crystal was in there. As his fingers brushed its surface, his hands shot out of his pockets and he started to fiddle with his jacket.

Somebody was jumpy.
] Just...well, I'm perfectly fine. I simply was caught off guard.

[personal profile] okamichild 2014-03-11 09:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Ame realizes he is not quite... normal. Should he even ask, though? he doesn't want to pry ]

... you don't look fine, though.
failassassin: (captain pensive)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-12 08:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Well I am, [Turlough responded, with a grumpy frown. After a pause, he looked over at Ame.]

I don't think I saw you last night. Did you go to the funeral?
okamichild: (Default)

[personal profile] okamichild 2014-03-14 09:30 am (UTC)(link)
[ well, Ame will drop it.

He shakes his head ]


There were too many people and they were drunk. I don't think it would be a thing I'd like.
failassassin: (eyebrow goes up)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-14 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't blame you, [Turlough responded, with a little sigh.] It was a bit rowdy.

Day 415

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2014-03-11 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Irving only has a few flowers in his hair, managing to dodge the paint in that effortless way of his. He smiles to see Turlough.] Very fetching, Turlough.
failassassin: (cheeky little smile)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-12 08:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[He can't help but roll his eyes slightly as Brax compliments his paint job.] It wasn't my idea, you know.

[However, his smile shows that he doesn't really mind it.] I see the natives got their hands on you as well.
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson with the best moustache known to man (cheeky smile)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2014-03-12 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, what a pity. [He's still amused though.] Yes, I think I look rather fetching, don't you?
failassassin: (chilling like a villain)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-13 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
More fetching than I do, at least. Between these vines and my hair, I'm practically a carrot!
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson with the best moustache known to man (cheeky smile)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2014-03-13 11:03 am (UTC)(link)
[He chuckles.] It's not that bad. Besides, nothing wrong with carrots.
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-13 02:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, but I don't want to look like one!

[Katie jerks back, surprised and slightly alarmed to be addressed so suddenly. It's not like she was following you, jeez.]

I didn't do anything!
failassassin: (faucet tap of death)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-12 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Well then somebody made that noise, [Turlough snapped back. Honestly, it wasn't that much of a loud noise. He's just jumpy, on edge, and needs to take a metaphorical chill pill.]

And if it wasn't you, then who?
emulation: (099)

[personal profile] emulation 2014-03-13 04:43 pm (UTC)(link)
How am I supposed to know? I don't read minds or anythi-

['Would you keep it quiet? Some of us are trying to think!']

[... Katie just. Stops and looks at her side.]

Okay. You heard that, right?
failassassin: (doctor you make me worry)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-13 08:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[That time, he didn't hear anything.]

Heard what?
emulation: (102)

[personal profile] emulation 2014-03-14 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
[She's looking. Peering, even.]

I think someone's in the bushes.

[A creepy stalker or something?]
failassassin: (bwuh?)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-14 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
It's probably just a rabbit.

[But Turlough's peering in the bushes also, slightly worried.]

allpurposescarf: (how very interesting)

416

[personal profile] allpurposescarf 2014-03-12 02:09 am (UTC)(link)
Don't do what?

[He's never really been terribly silent at the best of time, but he certainly hadn't been doing anything that he wouldn't have been any other time. So really, he can't have been that terribly distracting, or so he'd like to think.]
failassassin: (grump)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-12 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't be so loud! [Turlough testily replies, obviously tense and obviously on edge. He gives the Doctor a grumpy little frown.]

It's enough to make a man jump out of his skin.
allpurposescarf: (gettin' real tired of quarries)

[personal profile] allpurposescarf 2014-03-13 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Frowns are at least nothing that is out of the ordinary. Oh, they aren't common, but he's seen them before. Usually in response to one of his very ludicrous plans, but that's not so bad.]

I will be loud if I want to be!
failassassin: (slightly snarky)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-13 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
Well fine then, but don't be loud around me!

[Turlough knows that this is a bit...well, ridiculous. But he's jittery and anxious and really doesn't want to be on edge more than he already is.]
allpurposescarf: (were you looking for me?)

[personal profile] allpurposescarf 2014-03-14 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
[It is ridiculous, and Four isn't really inclined to let things pass without some manner of discussion. Not right now, anyway.]

It's not an inconvenience, is it?
failassassin: (oh that's how to cripple the TARDIS?)

[personal profile] failassassin 2014-03-14 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
It's annoying! [he snapped, going into a sulk.]
