ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE // VALENTINES DAY PARTY .
« on: February 14, 2020, 04:37:50 PM »
Valentines Day was officially in full swing, balmy rays of sunshine glaring down upon the sand as cheesy love songs played and guests all busied themselves with joyous festivities. A sailcloth tent sat further up the beach, adorned in hanging heart garlands and tables of food and drink whilst an NPC wandered around, camera in hand, offering to take photographs of the guests. On the wall a sheet of paper was tacked up, titled the matchmaker's couples!, followed by a list of names of those who wished to participate.

This year, Northstar District decided to try something new; rose giving. Different cuts of roses lay across a table in a pile for guests to give to one another - the yellow roses signified friendship, the pink roses a crush and the red roses as a declaration of love. Green looked upon the table as guests began to pick up roses to give to their loved ones, a fleeting smile flashing across his lips before he began to wander over towards a game of limbo being set up.

❝ So, there are two prizes for this game. Firstly - of course - the person who can get the lowest down wins a prize, but… there is also a prize for the best dance moves whilst doing so. Sounds good? ❞ Green looked around the group of potential participants before chuckling to himself. This was going to be hilarious to watch. A Flintlocker pumped his fist into the air, ❝ Woo! ❞ before Green nodded towards the limbo bar with a laugh, ❝ All right then; line up. ❞

Selena Felix
Sel was there, wandering around, greeting people. Being herself, basically. Eventually she made her way to the rose table, selecting a red one and sliding the stem down the front of her dress. She didn't know if she'd see Mateo here or have to seek him out later (after all, Bluestem had been invited as well and as much as she wanted to see him, she didn't want to risk it. There was only so much she could do to protect him), but she'd be ready when the time came.

"Once I have this baby it'll be over for you fuckers." She said, watching the limbo contest start up.

▪ Former Warchief of the Badlands

Physical —
♦ HUMAN | Health: 100%
— She's small, but not too small, with a growing baby belly. She's about 5'4", though with a presence that makes up for her stature. Slender and always moving, pretty blue-green eyes with a mischievous glint in them and you know she's gonna get you into trouble. Dark hair, no doubt dark thoughts as well. Red lips curve into a lazy grin that reveals white teeth - they won't stay pearly for much longer, though, as she's often seen smoking.
minor injuries: n/a
major injuries: n/a

Important Info —
▪ Currently seven months pregnant
▪ Trained medic but prefers the war and/or social branches.

▪ Opinions, motivations and ambition are Sel's and Sel's alone and are not shared by her roleplayer.

Personality —
— Sel is a very bold, competitive and stubborn person, with a wild side that is shown frequently as well as flirtatious tendencies. She is easily bored and is always on the lookout for adventure, with a spark of curiosity that she hopes will lead to what she seeks: adventure and romance. She seems to not be a very serious person and would rather have fun than be productive, and failing entertainment she can be quite productive and get quite a bit done. She's loud and lacks discipline. While Sel is irresponsible (and oddly bossy) and wild, she is very family-oriented and loves her family dearly. She is usually a cheerful, friendly person but she definitely has a passion for the weird, dark and creepy. She is somewhat vain and egotistical. She has her secrets and one of them is her intelligence and ability to collect information; most dismiss her as a dumb party girl (or something like that) and that's part of her cover, she has her fair share of sins and has to have a way of hiding them, and because she is a good liar and good actress, she succeeds.

mickey used to dread the idea of parties. every event was the same routine for the man; find himself a seat at an empty seat, drink in hand, and watch passersby enjoy the celebration. perhaps even at the start of the valentine's day celebration he considered doing just that - minus the drink, of course - but something made him want to change. after all these years of suffering and woes, with still many more obstacles ahead… why not try and enjoy this moment in his life where he once again felt peaceful?

his gaze flitted about the group, landing on someone in particular- he turned his gaze away, momentarily, and headed further away from his “usual” party-going spot away from the festivities. wandering towards the table full of flowers, he plucked out a rose. then, weaving his way through the other partygoers, he cleared his throat. “here,” he started, his lip twitching into the smallest ghost of a smile, “for the prettiest woman in the room.” words couldn’t describe the fondness in his eyes as he held the beautiful red rose out for tara to take.

he watched her for a moment longer. hesitated for a moment. then, he gestured towards the place closer the cheesy love-songs played, a few people dancing together there. “would you like to dance?” mickey couldn’t remember the last time he’d asked that. however, with tara, the nerves of it all didn’t seem so bad.

♔   Vesania hadn't really expected to be invited, but he sure as hell didn't mind. He stood at the table, reading over the list a billion times over, trying to remember the name of the person he was supposedly going to meet. He glanced back behind him to see if said person would be beside him, but he didn't find anyone who would match the name.
♔   Not that he knew anything of what Alexios looked like, of course. He wondered if they even knew what he looked like. He stood there like a walking stiff, feeling like it was prom all over again. Except, well, this time he wasn't wearing a suit. He probably should have worn something nice to impress his supposed other half he was paired with, but instead found himself in his usual garb; just a vest and skinny jeans.
♔   The man pulled away from the paper and decided to go find somewhere less-populated to stand. Usually he was one for crowds, but for some dumb reason, he felt like a snake was squeezing his insides.

Oh, David was nervous. He didn't like being around large crowds. He found out who his 'valentine' was, scooped up a friendship petal, and stood to the side, bouncing on the balls of his feet. He watched the group, finding himself watching the limbo group. He would have gone over to see better, but he didn't want to end up roped into it. His pale brown eyes flickered between everybody who was here.

Without much thought, David's hands began to fan over his chest. He held the petal tight between his thumb and his palm, afraid to drop it, as he began to stim. He had a list of places he'd much rather be than here, but he didn't dare say anything. He wanted to enjoy this, so he tried to make himself do such. He looked around, until he happened across the pregnant woman.

There weren't many pregnant women he knew -- especially not in Bluestem, but Selena was one of them. Her name also happened to be the one just on the list across from his own. He griped the petal tight in his hand and marched over, weaving through the crows until he came up to her. He didn't directly approach her, and instead just sort of loomed behind her for a moment before he thrust his hand out, the petal between his fingers.

"This is, um... This is for you. It's for, uh, for friendship." He stuttered.

TOO MUCH NOISE ONLY SERVES TO DESTROY ・゚*:・゚✧*:・゚
A beach party in the middle of February, Simba had seen plenty of bad ideas in his time and this certainly wasn't the worst but... It was odd, and cold. He had barely enough meat on his bones to be up and moving around, so he hadn't complained when Tammy had bundled him to high hell to fight off the cool breeze steadily coming off of the ocean. It was sunny at least, so there's a plus.

He'd been paired with a Damien, and- he hadn't really done this whole Valentines matchmaking thing before. He'd been assured it could be platonic, it was just a way to get people interacting, and if it'd been anything more he likely would've dug his heels in and refused to participate. But here he was, searching the party for somebody who matched the description of this Damien guy.

In shaking hands he held a yellow rose, because everybody else was taking them and he wasn't going to ask anybody if it was okay for him to not give a rose. Another yellow rose was tucked behind his ear, the thorns carefully taken off the stems before being perched there; a gift from his... Guardians? He supposed that was the right word for them.


Tammy was enjoying the party, as best as she could. She felt all too thin and spindly in her dress, even with a coat draped over her shoulders to keep the worst of the chill off her upper body. She'd been told her match was with some Zach fellow, but she was okay just sitting back and watching the limbo competition instead.

Thomas had already given her a yellow rose, so what more could she want? It was nice being able to relax and not worry about her companions for once, even if her gaze occasionally wandered to where Thomas was looking after Ports. She was glad he'd taken Ports for the day, it got a little exhausting taking care of him though she wouldn't trade him for the world.


Thomas was standing in the shade of the tent, casually helping himself to a large plate of food while Ports ate what appeared to be a small slice of poundcake a few feet away. It was good Ports was at least eating on his own now, though Thomas glanced over every few seconds to make sure he wasn't choking himself on it.

He could only hope the person they were paired up with - them, as in both of them, as Tammy had felt uncomfortable passing Ports off to a stranger without a babysitter - would liven things up, but for now he'd simply shovel food onto his plate and then into his mouth.

Selena Felix
She knew it was realistic to hold out hope for seeing her boyfriend at an event crawling with Bluestem cowboys. Still, when she sensed someone approaching her, she couldn't help but hope. It wasn't Mateo, it was one of said Bluestem cowboys. David, specifically, the one she had been paired with in the little matchmaking event. Like she needed any help.

Nonetheless, a pleased smile appeared on her lips. She took the flower and threaded the stem through her hair. She didn't bother with smelling it, since it would have been a pointless display for his benefit only; she wouldn't be able to actually smell how nice it was. "Thank you, David." Sel purred, wishing she'd nabbed a yellow rose for him too.

The man's face was red from embarrassment. His wild curls in his face as he studied her for a moment before finally withdrawing his arm after keeping it outstretched for far too long. He brought his hands up and tapped his fingers together, smiling a bit.

"You're welcome. I- I hope you like it. It's, uh, supposed to be a friendship flower- I said that already. I'm sorry, I'm really sorry if I'm bothering you." David immediately looked down, and his fingers raked over his face and into his hair for a moment before he let go and began stimming again. "I hope you have a good day today, miss." He dipped his head then and stepped back, trying to give her space as he realized he was taking up a lot of it.

valentines day. it wasn’t particularly a holiday that roman celebrated. more often than not he tended to forget it existed in the first place- at least, until recently. drink in hand, eyes wandered across the tent towards franklin. his lips twitched for just the briefest moment before he lowered his gaze. he hated the idea that people could change someone’s entire outlook on life. he hated the idea that, for the most part, that saying could be true -- and with frank, it was all for the better.

the holiday seemed redundant. what was the use? why should he try and make someone feel more loved on this one day in the year as compared to all the others? he didn’t know. more than anything he didn’t know why he wanted to. after a short sigh, feet carried him towards the table of flowers. plucking one, he wandered over towards his partner.

“the holiday’s a bit overrated, don’t you think?” he asked with a short hum, waiting a moment before wordlessly holding the flower out towards frank. “but i still buy into it. so.”[/b] meeting his eyes, there was a certain fondness in his otherwise stoic gaze. a silent knowing. the red rose- declaration of love. love. a word so oftentimes said and not truly felt. he didn’t need to breathe the word into life to know it already existed.

Tara had not celebrated Valentines Day in a long time. Ever since her marriage fell apart, Valentines Day had become something less of romance and instead more about love of a different kind. Finn was nearly three years old, and Valentines Day was instead dedicated to her love towards her beautiful son. It was fitting, after all; little Finn had become her number one priority the second he was born. Stood within the crowd, eyes wandered across at Thomas a short distance away, poking Finn's nose playfully as he held him with one arm.

A glimmer of a smile found its way to Tara's lips, head tilting to the side as she observed father and son with one another, before her gaze found itself turning to look over towards somebody else she loved like family. Eyes lit up. A rose. She cackled gently as Mickey held out a red rose for her, heart leaping into her chest with an inexplicable feeling of gratitude and joy. She wasn't sure if he would ever realize just how much she loved him. Mickey- ❞ She breathed softly, taking the rose and holding it close to her. ❝ It's beautiful. Thank you. ❞

Her smile was broad, overjoyed. And then, that was when he really surprised her more than ever. The Mickey she'd met was subdued, oh-so somber and reflective. Never did she ever imagine he'd be the type to entertain the thought of dancing, let alone ask her to dance with him. With a smile, she paused for a second before reaching out and clasping onto his hand, fingers interlacing effortlessly with his own. ❝ I'd love to dance. ❞ She sang lightly with a chuckle as she began to pull him through the crowd with her to where the others were all dancing.

❝ I'm really glad you're here. ❞ At this party. She didn't need to go into details for him to know what she meant. He was never one to choose to go to these sorts of events, and so his boldness not only surprised Tara, but it made her overwhelmingly proud of how far he'd come. She turned to face him, free hand resting on his shoulder as she looked up at him adoringly. Really - I am. ❞

Frank would never be one to show it, but he loved love. Valentines Day felt special to him, a day dedicated to spoiling loved ones and being spoiled in return - what was there not to love about a day like Valentines Day? However, he appeared to act far from his stance on the day, stood at the food table as he casually popped a strawberry in his mouth. This was no outburst of romance that he'd promised himself; this was him mindlessly picking at food whilst he waited for his boyfriend to come back.

He popped another strawberry in his mouth just as he saw Roman return through the crowd, swiveling around so that he could face his partner. And then, a gesture that Frank never could have expected emotionless Roman to make. A red rose - love. They'd never expressed those three little words to one another before; Frank wasn't sure why. There just never seemed like a right time. But, as he tried to fight off a smile, he knew that there could be no better way that Roman could confirm his feelings for Frank.

Frank took the rose and gazed at it before looking up at Roman, eyes glimmering with joy. ❝ I'll tell you a secret... ❞ Frank started, pausing for a moment before he reached his arm out, hand at the back of Roman's head as he leaned forwards to press a kiss to his forehead. A gesture so rare in the public eye, but one which was definitely worth it in the moment. ❝ It's a cheesy holiday, but I'm totally a sucker for Valentines Day ❞ Hand carded through the back of Roman's hair briefly before his hand fell back down to his side, peering down towards the rose. Love; Frank loved it.

Eddie began to wonder if love was even real. He once believed that he had fallen in love - he thought he had it all - and yet now he doubted himself. Was the love he ever felt real? Was he capable of loving another? Was he even worthy of being loved by others? He cleared his throat awkwardly; he most certainly did not deserve it, especially after all the things he'd done in his life, but this beach party was not the place to grow so gloomy in his own self-hatred.

Instead, he chose to wander off away from the crowd, itching the side of his nose as near-awkward eyes shifted stoically towards the party. He stood nearby Vesania, features unreadable as gaze wandered across the crowd before nodding towards them. ❝ D'you buy into all this? ❞ He asked quietly, glancing over towards Ves briefly before looking back at the crowd.

❝ Valentines Day. Sometimes it feels so... forced. ❞ Perhaps the alcohol in his glass (that he'd already filled up more times than he could care to admit) did not help his case, but that thought was probably the most open Eddie could get with anyone, let alone a complete stranger.

Donovan had waited his entire life for this moment. He had found himself the one - the one that he knew would be his everything. He could be so good to her; he could give her everything that she could ever want or need. Don was protective and courageous - he'd keep her safe from harm! Anything that she ever doubted within herself, he'd be the first to assure her that she was the definition of perfect.

They were soulmates.

Now, he just had to show her that they were destined to be in love with one another.

And so, Donovan weaved through the crowd, eyes searching specifically for one face only. Winnie. She ought to be here somewhere - she lived here and Donovan was certain that she was an absolute sucker for romance. After all, she was sweet and chatty and so, so adoring and passive. She had to love romance, right?

He stopped in the middle of the crowd, eyes wide and somewhat lost looking as he tried to peer through faces for his match for this party. It was so convenient that the both of them had been paired up in this matchmaking event. He even tried to act surprised. It was so convenient, even if he may have subtly swapped names around specifically so that he could be paired with Winnie. She couldn't be paired up with some stranger - what if he was a weirdo? What if he was a stalker who'd hurt Winnie?

Donovan couldn't let that happen. He was here to keep her safe. He was here for her to fall in love with him.

last year had been the first year in a long time mickey remembered spending valentines day alone. for the better part of a decade he had spent it with ellie, and before ellie he knew he always had his family gifting him a card or candy. ever since the engagement fell apart, ever since mick seemed to lose the better parts of himself over the years, valentines day tended to be overlooked or dreaded by the man. though, after the ups and downs since last valentines day, the changes he had made in his life… it all led him there, watching those beautiful eyes light up at the sight of a rose.

how could one person make mickey feel so happy?

coming across tara happened under circumstances so interesting that it felt almost like fate. never had he figured coming across a lost toddler would lead him to such a strong, sweet person. family. he could only hope that even on his worst days, tara felt nothing short of loved. his lip twitched upwards briefly as the blonde held the rose close to her, his fond eyes lifting to look up at her overjoyed smile. and, though he felt slight anxiety at the thought, he asked if she wanted to dance with him.

surprise. she knew him so well, of course it would come as a surprise. it was something outside of his comfort zone, something he seemed to never even contemplate doing. though he supposed there would always come along someone who made stepping out of his comfort zone worth it. he huffed in amusement at tara’s slight sing-song voice as they began to weave their way through the crowd.

“i’m really glad you’re here.” tara turned to face him, hand on his shoulder and fond eyes looking up at him. a ghost of a smile made its way to his lips. his free hand rested on the small of her back, thumb gently brushing back and forth. “wouldn’t miss it for the world,” he hummed fondly - though, as they began to dance, eyes darted briefly around. anxiety, self-consciousness, subtle worry of eyes being on the man slowly coming out of his shell. "it's been a while," he pointed out, paired with a gentle squeeze of tara's hand.

rome didn’t know why those three words had never been said between them. it didn’t feel like they put a weight on the words that made it seem daunting; it simply felt like there was no right time or way to breathe the words to life. frank tried to fight a smile at the sight of the red rose; rome mirrored him, lip twitching, threatening to smile himself. there was no other way rome could think of showing how he truly felt. no long, sappy speech, no big lead-up to the gentle confession. a rose confirming everything he was sure franklin already knew.

he loved the way frank’s eyes glimmered when he was happy. frank reached his arm out, hand finding the back of rome’s head. he pressed a kiss to ro’s forehead. he exhaled a short breath, slightly parted lips briefly twitching upwards at the rare gesture. “it’s a cheesy holiday, but i’m totally a sucker for valentines day.” he hummed as an initial response, frank’s hand carding through his hair before falling back down to his side. “really?” he asked, eyes lifting over to look towards frank and the way he peered down at the red rose in his hand.

“yeah, i hate to say it, but,” he hummed, reaching to grasp gently at a part of the flower’s stem as if he aimed to try and take it back. he made no real effort to. “that’s a bit of a deal breaker in my books. sweeping people off their feet isn't my thing.” amusement tinged his words. roman never wanted to try and make valentines day an important holiday in his books. he never wanted it to be different than any other day. though, after finding out frank’s fondness for the holiday, he found himself already wanting to find ways to never fail to amaze him every time february rolled around.
