Alatariel walked behind the bar. She wore a red shirt that said The Lofty Bartender in bright blue glittering letters on it and a pair of regular jeans. A few rushed to the bar to get a drink. Alatariel worked as best she could, Dom being tied to her. She took a moment to straighten her tie, or Billy's tie, which sent a blinding glare around the room. She noticed a few others talking. 'The bar is now open people!' she yelled across the room. She turned the dimmed lights around the bar up a little.
She sat on her stool, Dom on his next to her, and they both waited for some thirsty young party at tender to come up wanting something to drink. 'So this is the big party everyone has been waiting for, eh? It seems to be going well...' Dom said. He was wearing a spiffy shiny tie for the occasion.
'Yes, it only has just begun...' Alatariel replied.

Elbereth noticed Alatariel entering, with Dom trailing along behind her. Ala hurried behind the bar and a crowd of people enfulged it immediatly. When most of it had been served, Elbereth made her way towards the bar.
"Good evening, mellon nin!" Elbereth said to her. "How are you?" "Dom and I are fine, thank you," Ala replied, scooping ice into a glass. "Would you like a drink?" she said, raising an eyebrow. "Just a mug of hot chocolate would be nice," Elbereth said, surveying the list of available drinks behind Ala. "Nilly will be thrilled that you're finally here." Ala laughed and handed her a thin porcelain cup filled with rich chocolate and thick whipped cream. "Dom and I are prepared for it," Ala said. "I hear Mip brought William with her." They both laughed heartily, Dom staring at them confusedly.
Alatariel began making another drink for someone else. Dom, tied to her, helped as best he could. They both used their free hands to make the drinks.
Ala had just about satisfied everyone who was crowded there, and they all began to scatter around other parts of the room. Ala took out a digital camera and began snapping pictures of the joyous accation. Dom immiediatly grabbed the camera. He studied it for a moment and was about to stick it in his mouth.
'Dom...' Ala said a bit annoyed.
'Oh, yes...' Dom said, lowering the camera. He began snapping pictures. Ala was glad she had rid him of his... odd ways... and now she could just have him take pictures, one less thing she had to do, while she made the drinks.

Firi wandered around the hall looking for someone to talk to. Ala had finally arrived and was Dom with her. 'Of course' thought Firi. Helka had come and was at the bar with Nilly who looked very relieved that the bar had finally opened. Finally, she decided to join the group over at the bar. She walked towards them humming 'I Want to Hold You Hand."
"Hullo Firi!" called Ala, "What'll it be?"
"Hello to you to Ala." replied Firi, "A Gaffer's Delight, please."
"Sure thing." said Ala as she set a mug of hot chocolate infront of Firi.
Firi nodded hello to Helka then began to sip her drink while listening to Travis.
Elentari walked to the bar, having managed to just about refrain from laughing at Firi and Elbereth's antics until she was away from the scene. She had to act at least a little responsible. As she was stood at the table she heard something said about their not being fireworks and chuckled to herself. She got a glass of wine from teh bar and turned to leave when she nearly dropped her when at teh sight of...
"Helka!!!" Elentari ran up to him and gave him a hugh hug. "Where have you been?" she said in a jokingly stern voice.
"I apologise for my absense, Elentari," replied Helka.
"Well, you're here for the party atleast." Elentari smiled and Helka and Nilly and left them to talk. Where to go, she thought. She decided she'd go and take a candy-cane from the tree and find someone to give it to. This idea of gifting someone with the cane make her stop dead in her tracks. The secret santa!! Elentari, being very unorganised, had forgotten. Well, she always seemed to think up better presents in a rushed situation... Perhaps that was because she felt she had to make up for forgetting!
Niluial downed another shot of tequila. “Another one for, make it two for the lady” Helky said. Firi sat by the bar “Firi!! Oh Firi! Please do come sit by me” Nilly shouted across the bar. Firi came and sat next to Niluial and they both smiled. Nluial and Helky spoke to Elentari for a while but then she hopped off to the Christmas tree to give someone candy, the joys of giving! The music was blasting and more and more people were entering. Where is Lossie and GotO, Nilly wondered. “Niluial are you alright?” Helky asked while tucking Niluial’s hair behind her ear. “Oh nothing I am just waiting for some friends” Niluial said smiling at Helky. “Ara, I would like some Gaffers Delight, I am sick of shots!” Niluial asked. Dom handed Niluial the mug of hot chocolate, it was hot but very chocolaty. Niluial sipped it and burnt her mouth but it was too delicious to complain. Niluial watched the door. “Ok I’ve had it” Helky paused and took Niluial’s hand “you are going to have to dance with me! That’s one way to get you distracted” Helky said. Helky lead Niluial to the dance floor and they danced.

I will call you Goty! You will be MY Goty! (Goty = GotO = Galadriel)
Beware of the Goty spelling corrector. For every spello she makes $1 and with me around she is pretty rich…
Lossie is the best green faerie sweety pie sugar darling green thingy ever!!
Mippin hit a button randomly, and jumped over to greet Ala and Dom. She jumped the counter, and Billy came trailing along with her...unfortunately, he slammed into the counter. Mip turned around and looked at him. She raised an eyebrow, 'Dude...' she blinked as he stumbled over the counter. He dusted himself off, and stood up. Mippin then attacked Alatáriel with her portable lawm flamingo.
'I thought you'd never get here!!!' she yelled over the music, and whacking Ala and Dom repeatedly between just about every word. Mippin then put away her lawn flamingo and gave the two giant hugs. She wasn't used to hugging people so often, but she hugged just about everyone else...
As soon as everyone else left the bar for a moment, Mippin unfolded a large piece of parchment, and showed it to Ala and Dom. Billy had seen it before, so he wasn't surprised. Using a special code, Mip explained what was on the parchment. She recieved satisfying nods, and she folded it away. She handed Dom a digital camera, and watched him eat it, amused. Chuckling, she decided to go back to the music.
'Great, I need to attend to the tunes, if you ever need annoyingly loud rock to drown out the sound of you rehearsing or something, you know the signal.' Mippin said as she led Billy out from behind the counter in a more orthodox manner. Mip stopped and turned around. She winked then made a strange hand signal. 'two months' she said, as she walked away.
Mippin sat down in her stool, Billy beside her, and began playing some tunes...she was in a spiffy mood, she even played the tune that Billy wanted her to in the first place. As she put it in, she straightened her tie instinctively, causing Billy to snicker. She glared at him, and hit play. Soon the obvious words came pouring from the speakers. 'Now I don't know that your tie is straight...' Billy snickered again, and yet again, Mippin glared at him.
'All the same, it's best we go over the, erm. speeches.' Mippin said, slowly. She took out a piece of paper and handed it to him. She then handed him a pair of spiffy glasses, and he soon understood what she wrote.
Mippin stressed, and ended up playing some odd songs whilst Billy read, and nodded, and read some more, then nodded again. At long last he spake, 'Well technically, wouldn't it be best if-' he was cut off by Mip who clamped her hand over his mouth, and forcefull said 'Shut your mouth. Choke on your food. And die!'
She let go, and Billy said he wasn't planning on going to the snack table anytime soon anymore. Mip explained how some guiding force was keeping her from murdering anyone, and not to worry. Taking out a stash of cheese puffs, Mippin offered him one. He shook his head. Instead, Mippin ate a few herself. She choked, and her face turned an unlovely shade of purple, and she fell over. Or at least, that's what would have happened, if by 'No killing people' suicide wasn't included. Instead, Mippin happily munched and played more music, and chatted joviously with Billy about their expectations for the party.
Mippin noticed that some people took to dancing, at this, Mippin stopped the music, and complaints were heard. She took up the mic and spoke.
'What, you reallllly think I'm going to allow you guys to dance? What do I look like, a DJ?!' This was replied by a few random objects pelted towards her. Mippin took out her lawn flamingo and aimed it. She saw a few people cower, and chuckled. 'Bah, you know I wouldn't anyway.' she said, quickly putting the flamingo away. She then played some songs suitable for dancing in a flowing gown, or even a green faerie costume, and they began dancing again.

Dragoneyes rushed down the road. 'Thank goodness it's not muddy today!' she thought to herself. She had her dress hitched up around her knees and was running full pelt towards the venue of the party. She wore a black dress that shimmered electric blue when it caught the light in the right way and it was streaming out behind her. Unfortunately, the dress also ripped when it caught a branch in the wrong way. Dragoneyes heard it and cringed. She turned to find most of the train of her dress hanging in a tree. She looked down to the remains of the train.
"Ah, bugger it." She said quietly and ripped the remains ofthe train off, at least she didn't have to hoist it up any more and she set off again. Dragoneyes was also wearing a tall black hat of feathers. It didn't do much for warmth, but it looked good. Once again, fate was not on Dragon's side. The wind picked up and the hat was thrown from her head and landed upside down on the roadside. Dragon sighed and turned to find the feathers bent and broken. She considered trying to salvage as much of it as she could, but instead she said, "Ah, bugger it."
She now struggled down the road in her highish heels while trying desparately to keep at least her hair intact. But alas, she was to fail once again. She put her hand to her head and found that half of it had fallen out of the clip. "Bugger it!" she said in a very frustrated tone and pulled the clip out and discarded it. she took a few more steps before she stopped again and looked down at her shoes. "Bugger them too!" she said as the shoes followed the hairclip into the ditch.
Dragon stopped and checked herself for anything else she could be rid of. Nothing being thought of, she continued running.
Just before she rounded the corner to the red carpet and eventually the doorway, Dragon stopped and regained her breath and composure. Finally she was able to stand up strait and hold her head high for the cameras which had gathered. She stepped lightly down the red carpet and stepped into the doorway. She surveyed the scene. Well, it seemed they had opened the bar without her, but no matter, it meant less waiting. The hall itself was decorated lavishly, Dragon could hardly fathom how they had got some of the decorations to stay where they were. Dragon was momentarily awe-struck, but once again quickly regained composure.
Framed as she was in the doorway, everyone could see Dragon, she was not as she planned to look but she didn't look quite like a beggar either. The skirt of her dress was loose around her legs and stylishly ripped off at her shins. She'd gone for the hobbit look by wearing no shoes and no make up (in reality, she hadn't had time for the make up). Her dark blonde hair was free and waving it's way down to her back as it was wont to do. The bodice of the dress was neither too tight, nor too lose and the arms ended loosely just below her shoulder. Her distinctive yellow eyes shone out as they sweeped around the hall. At last she gave up on the composure and dragged her feet over to the bar where she collapsed on a stool in exhaustion.
Ala kept scribbling in her notebook. Dom took care of any peeps who needed something. 'When are you going to take over your job?' he asked handing someone a glass of hot chocolate.
'Well, technically, since you are tied to me, its your job, too...' Ala said, she turned to him as she said it and then back to her notebook when she was finished. She took out a hair-band and tied up her hair so she could write more easily.
Dom leaned over her shoulder, looking to see what she was writing, and then quickly grabbed it from her. 'Hey!' she said, trying to get it back. It was in code, of course, only a code one other person knew, and that person just doesnt happen to be here at these very awards (*grumbles*). Yet, Dom, being tied to her so long, and picked up the code, and now could read it fluently, maybe not write, but definatly read.
'Hee hee... this is what you call a speach?' Dom said. He took out a red pen and began scribbling stuff.
Ala grabbed it from him. 'You don't know how to write the code... that says "fried" not "friend",' Ala said snickering. 'Here,' she handed him a piece of paper.
'There isnt anything on this...' Dom said, puzzled at the paper.
'Ah, why of course,' she said and handed him some goggles. 'Only one other person knows about the invisible ink... and they happen to be at the party...'
A loud beat of horse galloping was to e heard outside the hall . It came ever closer and closer and finally a big black freezian horse steped up fom the dark . On it a lady in a black cloak sat and looked frozed to the bone . After quite a leg swinging she finally got one of them to fall over the horses back and she jumped down of it .
After giving the big horse to the little hobbit she took her steps on the red carpet . The cameras were lightening . Still the lady Ophelia was cold . Really cold . So she ded not linger there but went in to the hall .
"A shot of vodka pleace !" Ophe cried to Ala from the doorstep and by the time she got there the shot was ready and she grabed it and ran to the fireplace . Aaaahhhhh...... how warm...
Suddenly Ophelia went all stiff . She finally noticed what was around her . What she saw was practicly a wonderland . And all she could do was just gaze . But a shadow closed the sight of the beautyful room . A women in a green dress stood there in front of her and a sudden thought came to Ophelia`s mind . "Niluuu!!!!" she cried out loud .

Feeling a little guilty for being late, Nurumaiel and Dinodas hurried in and slipped towards the bar silently, hoping they wouldn't be overly noticed, as it was a bit strange for an Elf to arrive with a Hobbit as her escort (or so apparently). Nuru was especially uncomfortable, and hoped that Robin would arrive soon.
Dinodas was dressed very typically for a hobbit, and it would almost seem as though he hadn't dressed formally at all. Nuru was dressed in the same that she had worn for Thanksgiving that year... it was nothing very special, but it differed from the others. Her pants were nothing fancy, her hair was tucked up inside a hat, and she was wearing the Aran sweater that belonged to her father. (By the way, she wasn't wearing makeup. Nuru never does).
"Chocolate for both of us, please," Dinodas said to Alatariel after a greeting. "Hot chocolate," he added, to make sure she understood. He had baffled a few waiters in the past by calling it simply 'chocolate.'
Nuru gave Alatariel a little smile. The two of them had spoken with each other before, but they could not be considered good friends (not in the sense that they were enemies, but because they didn't know each other very well). Alatariel prepared the chocolate swiftly, and Nuru smiled as she tasted it. "Absolutely delicious," she complimented. Dinodas looked as though he thought the same, but he said nothing, as his eyes kept travelling towards the door. Perhaps he was just as uncomfortable looking as though he was escorting an Elf as Nuru was looking like a Hobbit was escorting her.
The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man. -- G.K. Chesterton
'Why thank you... its nothing special, really...' Ala replied. Nuru and the hobbit both sat and drank their hot chocolate merrily. Ala smiled at them then looked at Dom. He began to scribble in the notebook with a red pencil. 'Here ya go. I just made a few changes to the speech,' he said handing Ala the notebook.
'Thank'ee,' she said taking it and reading over what he had wrote. 'I have to go do something real quick,' Ala said to the people at the bar and gave Dom and e-vile grin. He raised an eyebrow and followed through a back room.
They returned with Agent Lofty. He was confuzzled, being dragged along. 'C'mon,' Ala said impatiently.
'But... where are you taking me?' Agent Lofty asked as he was dragged.
'You shall see,' Ala said, another e-vile grin coming across her face. She walked over to Mip and Billy, who looked as if they were scheming something. 'Hullo Mip!' Ala said cheerfully.
'Hullo!' Mip replied. She didn't expect it when all of the sudden Ala had tied Agent Lofty to her free arm. Her grin grew even farther across her face. She quickly ran back behind the bar, being slowed down by Dom. Mip was now trying to figure out how she could move around, both hands tied to someone. Elijah had taken out a Smashing Pumpkins CD and was about to play it when Billy had stopped him, wanting to listen to Travis.

GOTO grabbed at her pounding and ever-expanding head. "I'm late, darnit. I need to run. Now." With this in mind, she settled down in her comfortable arm chair, thinking, -of course-, only of running immediately. And... the clock ticked slowly as she dozed, her newly dyed hair falling into her face, rising and falling as she breathed.
-Only- an hour later, she woke up, stretching like a contented cat, and slowly got out of the chair, which had somehow managed to get itself upturned in the time that she had spent asleep. Sticking a comb with more or less understandable speed, she cursed the knots in it, and went right outside, crumpled clothes and all. Jumping onto her bike, she set off to the party...
Twenty minutes later she popped her tangled head into the door of the party building. "Am I terribly late?" she yelled into the mass. No response. Guess not. She made her way in, pushing reporters aside somewhat unceremoniously- not that they took much notice of the girl anyway, with her being dressed as she was, among all the fancy-dressed others all 'round- and managed to get to the table where her friends were milling about. She clapped a hand on Helky's shoulder, punched him in the back of the head, and moved on before he had realized what had realized what happened, smirking at him over her shoulder. () Then, getting to Nilly and Silver, she greeted them both happily. "I'm here, now the party can start," she said, her ego having been pumped up by hand, that very morning... it had better last, she thought savagely.
If you took all the little feelings in your heart And took all those little feelings apart Oh well now What's the point in doing all of that?
Mippin took her lawn flamingo in her teeth, and jerked her head around, smacking both Elijah and Billy in the head. They yelled 'OW!' and Mippin took the flamingo out of her mouth. 'okay! here's how it works. they're done. you're done. kill yourself. Smashing Pumpkins, then Travis. Got it? Good. I can still beat the crap out of you two so just shut the abyss up and cooporate!' The two were taken aback by Mip's forceful voice. They looked scared, but that was probably because they were now bruised from the flamingo, and Mip had an evil red gleam in her eye. Now, Mippin had Elijah untie himself, and tie himself to Billy's other side. 'Now, I'm the DJ, I say what gets played, got it?' Elijah shook his head jokingly, and was met with an Angry Mip flinging a lawn flamingo at him. 'Got it now?' she asked angrily. He nodded and whimpered. She took the CD from him, and put it in. It was apparently Gish. Mip was much too familiar with it. 'Hidden song is out, we're keeping it clean.' she said, sitting in her stool, her lawm flaingo at her side, ready to fire at any dispute.
Mippin listened to the music, and looked out at the guests. Ophelia was there, and so was Nuru, she waved at them with her free hand. Mippin went through Elijah's CD collection. It was big...it was enormous...it was about 1,574 or something like that CD's big...Mippin then set his CD collection under a table, where Elijah could not reach it to play something on his own. She also confiscated Billy's Travis CD's.
Alatáriel, and Dom finally came back. Dom pushed a Coldplay CD in front of Mip. Mip snarled at him and took the CD, adding it to the queue of things to play. 'You will pay. Once I am free, you shall pay.' Mip muttered under her breath. It wasn't that bad, she could have been tied to someone worse. And at least she had her portable lawn flamingo to keep her 'life-size, ever-growing charm bracelet' in line.
At last Gish was over, and Mippin skipped the last two songs. Elijah called out 'Hey, why'd you skip Daydream?!' Mippin glared at him, then changed her expression. 'Because, my dear Elijah, it sucks.' she said sweetly. She grabbed a Travis CD and put it in. Dom yelled 'Coldplay!' at her from the bar, Mippin replied in the same manner. 'Lawn Flamingo!'
Mip had been tied to Dom before, they never had musical disputes, but then again, she didn't DJ much when Dom was attached to her wrist. Then again, she didn't listen to much other than Coldplay, Stone Roses, and occasionally some other of his favourites. Lots of Beatles, which Mip thought would have pleased Firi.
Mippin noticed GotO make an entrance, she punched Helka, so Mip decided not to blatantly scream out her name. Instead she just waved inconspicuously, in between beating Agent Lofty and Billy with her flamingo.
She took out her parchment, and made a few notes. Billy and Agent Lofty tried to look over but Mip just started singing. My lawn flamingo, crashing into your head, and the pain. O! the pain...my pretty lawn flamingo, and your dented head... They got the hint and decided to play Rock, Paper Scissors to see who gets the next request. Not that Mip would accept their requests, but they figured Mip couldn't hurt them if they asked nicely... surely they must have gone wrong somewhere in the equation to get that solution, but Mip just kept scribbling on her parchment.
