"Noooooooooooooo!" Nova shrieked. Everything was just wrong this evening. She was already far too late for the party (About three pages, if I might add ;D), and now her horse had refused to let her ride him. She ran up the street, well knowing of that there was a long road ahead. "And these shoes?" she cried out. She ran as quickly as she could, looking quite desperate.
"Am I dying?" she thought, exhausted now. She had seen lights a few hudred paces away, and she was sure she was dying. She groaned, and started walking slowly. She took a deep breathe, thinking of how wonderful this evening would be if she only could get to the hotel-looking building. By this thought she was encouraged, but still she went in the slowest pace possible.
Nova looked up to see the great roof of the building. "YES!!! I made it!" she laughed to herself.
From the outside it looked quite dead, only a red carpet lit up the evening, which was growing darker and darker. Nova decided to go in, although she felt quite nervous.
"Hello?" she asked, taking her heavy coat off. Already in the hallway, she could hear the merry voices of someone talking, obvioulsy very excited about tonight's events. Nova sighed, "I better go find some of the others."
Mip saw Aunt Orlanda walk in with Firi. She winced, and shuddered and then looked at who she was tied to. She was tied to the same guy who had to 'Save the world from the derranged farm shirt.' She watched and tried not to draw any attention to him. She watched as he walked out with Firi, he looked like he was attacked. Mip sighed. 'What, what happened?' Dom asked her. 'Nothing, just the derranged farm shirt guy.' she said. He leapt up, dragging Mip with him, and began sniffing the air. Mippin smacked him lightly with her lawn flamingo. 'He left. Now settle down!' she said.
He came back in, wearing a PotC costume. Mip raised an eyebrow at this but said nothing. 'DO THE WAVE!' Firi yelled. Instinctively, everyone sprang up and did the wave. Mip sat down again. Dom sniffed the air again. 'You have a camera...and the derranged farm shirt guy is back.' Mip looked at him. 'Camera - no. Derranged farm shirt guy - yes, but he's not wearing a derranged farm shirt anymore.'
Dom looked around. 'I'm sure you have a camera.' he said, trying to find it. 'Yes, Dom. I have a camera. You can't have it. Next time I have one to spare, you can.' she said politely, yet had a grip on her lawn flamingo. He growled and then sat down on a stool against a speaker. Mip moved her arm up to the table again, making Dom do the same, and she sat against the other speaker. Occasionally, Mip switched the song, but said nothing much.

Lossie arrived calmly just in time to see Nova entering the great doors before her. She walked up the red carpet, stopping for a second to flash a cheeky smile at the photographers. Her dark hair was hanging in long waves down her back, and her greenish dress, rather similar to Nil's, glistened slightly in the flashes of the cameras. Her wings, although slightly smaller than Nils, were a little torn, due to the hazardous journey to the party. Luckily, her dress had the odd strip of torn material, so her wings looked intentionally damaged.
Lossie stepped through the doors, into the great hall. Looking around, it was just how she'd expected it to be, and was especially pleased to see that there was indeed a huge tree surrounded by green faeries. 'Hmm, green faeries...' She thought to herself. 'I wonder where Nil is...' She proceeded into the hall, giving no clue as to wither she even knew how late she was. There were people all around, dancing or chatting. Naturally, Lossie went straight to the bar. She grinned at Ala, before pointing to a ceratin green drink. "Hey Ala. Two please." She bit her lip, wondering where to find Nil with her peace offering. Glancing around, she noticed another member who also seemed to have had a tough time of getting to the party. With a knowing smile and a tilt of her head to her wings, the two stifled a snigger, and quickly looked away. Lossie looked around the room again, wondering how she'd missed Nil. She pulled a leaf out her hair before picking up the two ornate glasses of absinthe and setting off to find her friend.
Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self. The green fairy who lives in the absinthe wants your soul. But you are safe with me.
'Thank'ee,' she replied and walked over to Nil. Ala looked at Nil's outfit. A Green Faerie, she thought to herself. Ala looked at Dom and Mip. Dom seemed a little on edge with the derranged farm shirt guy in the room.
Ala took out her sketch book and began to sketch ideas for dresses she would have to present. There was still enough time to get them fixed up real quick. The party would last a long time. Elijah tried to catch a glimse of what she was doing. Ala gave him the e-vile eye and he backed off.

Mip sat watching the guests. She saw Lossie come in, and Nova too. Lossie was dressed a green faerie as well. Why does that NOT surprise me? she thought to herself. She looked over at Dom, who was massaging his head, and insisting Mippin gave him an concussion with the lawn flamingo. 'You could have warned me before you went and attacked Orlanda, you know.' she said bitterly. Mippin fiddled around with the camera she confiscated from Ala. 'Here, eat the evidence.' Mip said as she handed Dom the camera and some salt.
'Ah, thank you!' he said, salting the camera and sticking it in his mouth. Mip watched as he ate it, and shook her head amusedly. She decided to play something different, so she turned around and put in a random CD. Apparently it was the Stone Roses again. Mip listened as Love Spreads began to play. She tapped her foot lightly to the music and began singing the chorus. Her voice rather blended in with it, so she didn't sing as soft as she usually did. Dom happily munched on the camera, savouring every bite. Mip tilted her head and spoke at last. 'You know, for a former chef, you certainly have strange taste when it comes to food.' he grinned in reply and finished off the camera.
'I'm surprised you didn't steal the cameras from the paparazzi at the door.'
Ophelia was laughing at the sight of Dom eating the camera when Lossy walked to the bar to take some drinks but she didn`t notice Ophe because she had fell off the chair and was lying there and laughing about something (maybe because of the vodka ?) . But then she saw a pair of legs with glass shoes on them and the ending of a greenish dress walking away and when she finally saw the long dark hair she jumped up real fast exchanging places with the chair she had fell off . Then in an really-not-made-for-high-heeled-shoes run she sneaked up on Lossy from behind and then fastly covered Lossys eyes with her own hands and saying "Guess who?"
Lossy stoped as just whacked in to a wall . "You`re not Nilly as I figured from your voice .... Give me a hint ." "Ok - my name starts with an O and continues with phelia !" she said still giggling . "Ophelia ! " cried Lossy . "You`re late ." replyed Ophe and gave Lossy a hug . "I`m looking for Niluial by the way . Have you seen her ?" Lossentilien asked after the hug was over . "Last time I saw her she was with Helka over that armchair ." Oph returned to the question .
So off went Lossy to find Nilu and Ophelia sneaked forewards sliding right by the walls like a really dumb agent and she finally ended up right behind Nova . "Boooo!!!!" Ophe cried and threw her hands on Nova`s shoulders . Nova jumped up with a scream that made everyone look their direction . "Hellow Nova !" she added . "Ophelia , you weird thing , don`t you ever sneak up un me like this again !" gasped Nova . Ophelia just giggled and smiled in a sheepish way .
Life is a waterfall, We drink from the river and then we tur around and build up the walls. Swing through the void we hear the words, We lose ourselves but we find it all Sharpen you fangs ---> braveireland.proboards21.com
Ala gave Mip one last e-vile eye for confiscating her camera and feeding it to Dom. And she had nearly succeeded in ridding him of that awful habit. Elijah looked at her oddly as she gave the e-vile eye.
'Dude?' he asked, sounding a bit worried.
'I had almost rid Dom of the awful habit, too. I almost had it where I could take pictures without having him snatch it from me and eat the camera... but nooo,' she said, finally taking the e-vile eye off of Mip. 'I'm okay... really.'
'Erm... right....' Elijah said.
Ala pulled out her digital video camera and began recording everyone. She got about a minute of Boromir doing his moonwalk, Gandy smoking his pipe weed, and Frodo doing his funky chicken dance. When she was about to get a few seconds of everyone else doing their own odd little things, Elijah went right in front of the video camera and looked as if he were about to eat it. Great, I’m tied to another digital camera eating actor, Ala sighed at that.
She gave Elijah the e-vile eye and began to reach into the pocket with the knife, it was only a bluff, of course; if she were to do some damage, she would take out her plastic penguin. He slowly backed away as far as he could, being tied to her, and sat down on the stool. Ala gave an e-vile grin and continued taping.

Elbereth laughed as Ophelia ambushed Nova. She hurried over to greet her as well.
"Mae govannen, Nova!" she said, smiling warmly. "It's wonderful to see you!" Nova smiled and said, "It's wonderful to be here." "Why were you late?" chided Ophelia. Nova lowered her eyes sheepishly. "I had oufit, er, trouble," she said, blushing. The three of them laughed heartily. "Well, no matter, you're here now!" Elbereth said, throwing her hands up joyously. "Come have some refreshments!" The three of them made their way through the growing crowd to the table.
And down the river's dim expanse Like some bold seer in a trance, Seeing all his own mischance -- With a glassy countenance Did she look to Camelot. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain, and down she lay; The broad stream bore her far away, The Lady of Shalott.
Ala said finished and held up her drawing to examine it. Elijah said, 'May I see it?'
'No... its not coloured...' Ala said. She reached into a backpack that had been under the bar the whole time. Out came a box that could fit ten digital cameras in it. She set it on a stool next to her and opened it. Elijah's eyes widened at the site of the box filled to the top with coloured pencils.
Ala reached her hand in a pulled out a specific colour and worked away at the picture. Elijah tried to catch a glimse of it. He was towering over Ala, but just couldnt see it. Ala took out her knife and gave him the e-vile eye. He quickly sat back down on his stool.
After about thirty minutes Ala said, 'Finished.'
'Can I see it now?' he said grabbing for the notebook. Ala hissed at him and he moved his hand away from it. She stuck the notebook in her backpack and went to make herself a drink.
'Anyone want A Taste of Death??' Ala yelled over the crowd and awaited a reply.

Orli choked on his drink when he heard Ala's offer. "Don't be alarmed." whispered Firi, "She can't kill anyone here. Not supposed to anyway." Orli nodded but didn't look very reassured. Firi rolled her eyes in exasperation. "Anyway, I have this." Firi revealed her dear sword to her partner. Orli still didn't look very happy, infact, he looked worse. But Firi just continued doing what she had been doing for quite some time, drinking her hot chocolate.
Finally, she decided it was time for a change. Firi waltzed over to Mippin and Dom at the DJ station. All of the sudden, she got pulled back sharply. Firi whipped around to see why Orli had stopped. His horrified gaze was fixed on The Derranged Farm Shirt Attacker. Realizing that it probably was not a good idea to take Orli near Dom, she changed course.
After a while of wandering aimlessly around with Orli, the couple found themselves in the middle of the dance floor. "Well, why not?" said Firi. Before Orli could say "Agent Lofty is lofty!" Firi had grabbed him and was forcing him through a disco dance. The flustered "elf" accidently stomped his foot hard onto Firi's foot. "OUCH!" cried Firi. "Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. After all, you're no disco king." At this Orli's eyes saddened and got that pitiful look that Firi couldn't stand. With a groan, Firi took her position again and tried her best to survive the dance.
Ala snickered at Orla and Firi, taping some of the priceless moments. It seems as if the drink wasnt very popular. You'd think Nil would have wanted to try it, being the one that suggested the idea of a drink that can kill ya. Ala sighed, she saw that Billy was squirming tied to the post. She snickered and snapped a shot of him; being tied to a post would make a funny picture to post on the internet.
Ala sipped at her drink. The party was running smoothly, although she wished it would move a little faster. She took out her notebook and reviewed the ongoings at the party.
Lëowen ran down the dark streets, trying to find the Imladris Christmas party. So far, she was having no luck. She knew she should have brought that map. Foolish, foolish elf.
Aha! Lights! She turned a corner, and there, finally, was the building she had been searching for. A red carpet lay before the doors, only dimly visible in the dark. She paused a moment to catch her breath, before pushing open one of the doors and slinking inside.
Quite a few Imladris members were already there, chatting or just hanging out. Ala was serving drinks behind the bar... Ala!
'Gasp!' Leo dashed over to the speakers, hiding behind them. Being seen by Ala was bad. Being seen by Ala meant ending up tied to some random LotR cast member.
'Hullo, William!' said a voice. Leo turned, to find Mip and Dom.
'Hallo, Mip! Happy Not-Quite-Yule!' Mip grinned, and Leo handed her an acorn. As long as Ala didn't see her, this would be quite fun...
Ala noticed someone walking in, but they dashed away before she could see who it was. Suddenly she say Mip and Dom dragging Lëowen out from behind a speaker and towards Billy. Ala left the bar and walked over to them. Mip was having trouble holding the squirming Lëowen and untying Billy at the same time, so Ala would help them.
She reached in her back pocket and took out her knife. At first everyone's eyes widened at the site of Ala with a knife, but they soon un-widened when she had cut Billy loose. Ala quickly did a knot so confuzzling in the rope that tied Lëowen and Billy together, neither of them would ever figure out how to undo the knot. Ala snickered and Dom and Mip let go of the two.
'No, Billy, do not let her run away,' Ala said to him, knowing Lëowen would attempt it. He nodded and looked oddly at the new person tied to him. She seemed a bit annoyed.
Ala walked back to the bar, dragging Billy and Lëowen with her. She set them at the bar and handed each of them a coke. 'Enjoy the party!' Ala said.
Lëowen was intent on giving Ala the e-vile eye and hadn't yet touched her soda. Billy began to sip at his as he watched the two oddly. Ala gave another e-vile grin and walked to the back room to summon the green fearies. The appetizers were almost done.
Mip rushed over to Lëo and tilted her head, wondering what in the abyss drove her to help tie her to Billy. She looked at Lëo apologetically, and whispered. 'Sorry' Lëowen gave her the e-vile eye, and shrugged it off. Mip sat down on a chair, 'Where's Chippy?'
Mip ordered up a Code Red Mountain Sproke Beer, and sipped on it. 'Have you seen Frod, around?' Mip asked Lëo. She shook her head. "Ah. Little demon. I brought him in my pocket, but he seemed to have escaped. I hope he doesn't go attack Ala for being tied to Elijah...' Lëowen snickered at this, and looked over at Ala. Mip looked in her direction, then quickly stood up and began draining her pockets. 'OH NO!!!' she yelped out over the blaringly loud music. Everyone looked at Mippin alarmed. Mip sat down. 'Don't worry folks, I thought I lost my..err...car keys!'
Sitting down, Mip glared in Ala's direction and saw what she was missing. Frod was going towards Ala with Mip's portable guillotine. Mip chuckled but at the same time got a bit paranoid. Frod was very..protective of..anything..that slightly resembled..Frodo. Unfortunately for Ala, she was tied to something..that..slightly resembled..Frodo. Lëo, Billy, Dom and Mip watched intently as the adorable, e-vile, mini-balrog of doom approached Alatáriel. He extended the guillotine to it's full height, then he began whipping Alatáriel with his whip. Ala tried to get him off of her, but it's was a futile attempt. Frod had fool-proof plans, you see. He shoved Ala's head between the stand and the blade, and then he pulled the string on the side. The blade came whipping down. Billy and Dom winced, and looked away, but Lëo and Mip knew better. The blade came crashing down onto Ala's neck, but stopped just before breaching the skin. Mip got up, dragging Dom, and picked up the mini-balrog. 'She's not a sue, Frod.' she said gently, handing her precious mini some bacon. Mip took up her guillotine, and folded it up, and stuck it in her pocket.
'That was lovely.' Lëo said, chuckling. Mip nodded and took her mini and Dom back to her station to play some more music.
