Thursday, May 5

Saila woke up with a start flat on her back on the beach outside Casa del Brujo. Panic soaring through her chest, she scrambled to check her phone, only to learn that she still had plenty of time before the day got started at the Carnaval de la Vie. Phew.

Since there was enough time, the purple haired teen got herself ready to go for the day and then headed over to the Festival, checking it out for the first time this week. First things first, she sidled over to the Hair or Dye Braiding Booth to see Miz Grace and get her hair sorted out.



Next up, she stopped by the Bandages and Bottles booth, where she said hello to either Godfry or Ashling or whoever else happened to be there. Browsing the items for sale made her a little sad, but she purchased a fairy wand for herself (because glitter?) and a Stone Tortoise of Sass for Keirra.

After that, she picked up some windchimes from somebody named Hephaestus for Quinn, because apparently he was into windchimes.

Out of time, Saila took off for the Carnaval, just in time to go open the booth.

Thursday, May 5



The Hair or Dye Booth experienced a veritable flood of lovely visitors on Thursday.

First there was her friend Saila. The long legged teen with the vivid locks had done some hair modeling for her in the past, and was all too happy to show off Grace's work for her while she manned the Kiss and Tell booth over at the Carnaval de la Vie.

Grace was thrilled to meet and do braids for Thorn and Dia, Elena, and Azure. Such lovely ladies, all, and a joy to work with -- even with a smaller child continually climbing on Azure!



On her break, Grace stopped to watch the Wandering Musicians for a time, and then made her way to Public to make a cut out butterfly. She also bought a beautiful piece from the gallery while she was there. Heading over to the Panacea booth again to purchase herself a fresh flower garland crown, she then got lunch from the Matadero Meats Booth, and engaged the Improv Court Song Composer to give her a song about hair braiding while she ate.

Then it was back to the booth to finish off another lovely day of braiding.

Throughout the day Thorn and whomever she managed to cajole into riding with her, took full advantage of the hot air balloon rides. Watching the landscape below turn patchwork and blur, the towns, cities and villages take on the illusion of being toys. Purely by chance she fond more than a few places to return to and explore at a later time.



After she'd had her fill (mostly) of ballooning, she wrangled some reinforcements for the Dunk Tank. If at all possible, she took a turn manning the booth as well.

Friday--Jewell

Jewell attended the festival without Sapphire on Friday since the teen felt sick from eating too much pie on Thursday. She dragged Rayvinn along instead to volunteer at the Kids of Summer Dunking Booth for part of the afternoon.

Then they visited the booths serving alcohol. All the booths serving alcohol.

Every.single.booth.

Friday. May 6, 2014


On Friday morning, much to Salvador's disbelief, Canaan was awake well before the sun. He urged the Spaniard out of bed with a few hints about a surprise and after getting dressed for the day, they left their apartment in Old Market, and drove about 20 minutes outside the city proper, to a field where a bright yellow hot air balloon was in the process of being filled. Cane explained to an awestruck Salvador that he'd paid for an early flight so they could watch the sunrise from up high.

The sun peeked over the horizon just as the hot air balloon reached its peak height. It's possible that a handful of slumbering people in the homes far below may have been awakened by a scream or two of, "**** you!"





After their morning excursion, the pair checked up on their booths at the festival in Elsewhere Park. They shared a late breakfast at Faerie Fusion before wandering into the thick of the festival. The Cajun grabbed some pamphlets from Container Gardening for Small Spaces and a set of wind chimes for Aoife along the way.

Somewhere between watching the Fire Dancers and when he challenged the Pyrojuggler to a juggling contest, Canaan somehow got roped into manning the Dunking Booth for a short time. Turns out Salvador has spectacular aim, but did anyone really doubt that?

Since his hair was already a mess after getting dunked so many times, the Cajun started heading for Hair or Dye's booth, but Sal dragged Cane away from the booth to an empty picnic table near Feygarten's booth instead. The two grabbed a few beers and then parked their behinds at a table so the Spaniard could weave a braid into Cane's long hair.

Cane got himself another exclusive ballcap from wisp since Taneth ran off with the one Sal bought him the other day, which he dropped off with the wind chimes at Panacea's booth for Vash to take back to the store for him.

Sal and Cane disappeared for a time, stopping for dinner at a restaurant on their way to the Carnaval de la Vie to watch the fireworks.

Friday, May 6



Arriving on the Festival Grounds a few minutes late, Grace rushed to get the Hair or Dye Braiding Bar as quickly as she could.

About mid day, her most awesome pizza fairy Serah stopped by the booth as promised. Grace used some of the blossoms she'd purchased from My Bloomin' Head to whip up a gorgeous braided design for her candy-floss pink hair.



After promising to come see her at the Sassy Owl, Grace bid goodbye to her new friend.

The tiny stylist was temporarily starstruck when, for a heartstopping moment or two, Grace thought she might actually get to do a braid for one of the stars of Wednesday's night's Vivant Showcase, but alas he was pulled away at the last second.

Her disappointment was short-lived, however, when a certain not-King made good on his promise to come visit her at the Festival. Together they checked out some of the booths Grace hadn't gotten to yet, marveling over Eregor's epiphytic orchid "air plant" baskets and the lovely stemware in Ciarth Whitemane's glassware shop. Finally they headed over to wisp, where it's possible Grace got a new hat.

Then it was off to get in line for a wildly romantic sunset hot air balloon ride. Neither of the gypsies had ever been on one before or even really seen one up close, so it was an especially gorgeous first experience for the both of them.

Once the balloon ride was done, it was time to head back over to the Carnaval de la Vie one last time to see the fireworks display.

Thursday found Claire at Dragons Gate Orphanage in the morning then out flower picking in the afternoon. Averia enjoyed the latter far more than her brother did. He mostly enjoyed trying to take his sister's collection to try and put them back in the ground "where they belonged". As toddlers are inclined to do, this led to quite the fit and she was quite grateful for the extra set of hands from Cooper to help haul the kicking and screaming kids home for a much needed nap.

Friday was likely the day that Claire was looking forward to the most out of the entire week. Hot air balloon rides for Beltane and fireworks thanks Carnaval de la Vie? Double score.

Saturday and the redneck was prowling the festival once again.

After enjoying the archery show and some garland making with the flowers she'd gathered, Thorn returned home just long enough to change, and collect her mount.

On the small side, at just 15.2 hh, the palomino overo's conformation was deceptive: He seemed more delicate than he really was. Her tack was minimal at best, a simple jaw rope and no saddle.

While coursing after the hounds, neither the woman nor her mount faltered. She stuck to his back like a burr, moving fluidly with the mustang across the countryside. Not once did the paint refuse an obstacle, and not once did they lose the pack.

A day off! Benjamin showed up with Star in tow, the big Vanner stallion following him around like a dog. Garland making was a bust, as Star would rather eat the flowers than to let Benjamin make anything of them.

But they'd cheerfully join the hunt, though Star wasn't wearing anything more than his Batman collar, and Benjamin in jeans, boots, and a t-shirt. Star was well able to keep up with the pack, but they'd break away from catching any foxes.

They might even facilitate the escape of the foxes...

Thorn might be able to keep the pair out of trouble.

Yay Scavenger hunt! Desdenova showed up early with his crew of detectives: Elvis the Rabbit, Bea the Maltese pup, and Daisy the nightmare, resignedly in charge of the merry band of misfits.

Brat boy had a deerstalker hat on his head (too big), a coachman's coat (swiped from his sisters goth wardrobe), lace up boots and a 'Property of Miskatonic University' t-shirt on as he scurried place to place, looking for the items on the list.

He probably would not resort to magery or time-travel to get anything he couldn't find easily.

Probably.

Saturday, May 7



The last day of the Festival was an especially busy one for Grace. Lots of people at the booth getting ready for the Good Faeries Ball that evening.

She watched the people racing past for the Scavenger Hunt, and dutifully gave out rubber bands for those who asked.




Because Grace had a real hard time saying no, she stayed until the very last person who wanted their hair done for the ball was complete. Then it was off to get herself ready, catch up with the Gypsy King, and head over to the festivities, too!

He didn’t tend to do festivals over much. They just didn't sit well with him given his past and so he hardly ever complained when work kept him too busy to dally with such trivialities. In Rhy’Din though he’d found himself with a wealth of idle time given the small operation area compared to the nation trotting he was accustomed to. This state of things was only further exacerbated by the fact that he had a standing order to push most of the hunts to Spencer so as to sharpen her teeth and wits.

So where he’d usually have just paid minimal attention to the request of one like Turner to watch over the man’s long list of dangerous acquaintances he found himself actually following up on the ones tagged ‘most prone to trouble.’ Of course the size of this list sort of piqued his interest all on its own to think that so many people could really be of such poor fortune to require watchful attention of a hunter. And much as he expected few of them truly did attract the sort of interesting times that he’d classified as requiring monitoring or some form of intervention. This just helped to cement his view that Eli really was a bleeding heart despite his rough and tumble past; a softie that wanted to protect everybody when he could barely protect himself. A pitiable way to be he thought but then it at least gave him something more to do than harass Elodie.

And so it was for this reason as well as a more political thought to study the strange cultures and customs of Rhy’Din and this Earthrealm celebration which had him out during the week long Beltane festivities if not exactly participating. No, he more just stuck to the sidelines watching as others partook of the festivities, an eye kept on those acquaintances of the broken hunter as they crossed his path but he made no serious effort to track or shadow any of them in particular other than perhaps for a bit of what he considered fun.




He of course took measures to be amicable if not downright friendly, mingling with the masses as any hunter worth their salt could with twinkling umber eyes and a warm smile. One hell of a production value sort of expression though even he couldn’t help but let a little genuine amusement cross dark hued features as he witnessed the impressive aerial display put on over the Carnaval de la Vie. There was something to be said about a good fireworks display even if such should have sent an old soldier veteraned in too many wars as he diving for cover. He mused that it must have been a hunter thing to marvel at brilliant explosions knowing that they weren’t, for once, directed at you.



Come the evening for The Good Faires' Ball was he opted to go with a classy suit that was fashionable yet refined. Something that was easy to move in as, despite assumptions given his usual standoffish behavior, he did quite enjoy dancing. Maybe because he likened it to a form of martial art, a harmony between mind, soul, body, and the syncopation of the outside world. Getting ready to head out from the modest loft apartment that had finally been set up for a second hunter (with enough runes, wards, and barriers to protect a paranoid and overly successful infernal summoner) he paused as he felt the familiar tingle of that cellphone vibrating in his breast pocket. Snagging the sliver of tech between leather clad fingers he inspected the message that scrolled along the top, a wry smirk escaping him.



Figures…” Without missing a beat he tucked the cell back into his now highly overdressed suit jacket; free hand catching that tactical belt of vials and those heavy caster gauntlets from next to the door as he headed out for a different kind of night out on the town than was originally planned. No rest for the wicked as it were but this sort of entertainment probably suited him better anyway as he set out on the hunt once more.

Rena spent part of each morning this past week wandering the booths and events set up for Beltane, getting inspirations for ideas for the shop-from candle colors and scents to stained glass kits.

The last day of the Carnival, she spent talking to the vendors-some placing orders for her candle shop.

The day pass armbands that were purchased, Sandy just knew they would end up in a scrapbook or tucked into the sofa or any one of Liam’s hiding spots. The man seemed to have a hundred of those spots around the apartment. Every time Sandy found one with a few bottle caps, a scrap of cloth or a piece of paper it made him smile. He supposed that was the purpose of the hiding spots; to remind Liam of a specific time or event to make him smile.

By mid morning Sandy’s hair was a tangled mess. So to the Hair or Dye Salon booth to get his hair braided by Grace. Her name was a fitting one as her talented hands soothed his scalp and braided his hair (5 strands is tricky!) and then put it into a bun at the base of his skull. Grace had some help from Liam who would run over to twist some baby’s breath or daisy into his hair and then dart away. She was charming and witty, and by the time she was finished, Sandy left feeling as if he’d just made a friend.

And while Sandy was getting his hair braided, Liam had busied himself with weaving different color and sized daisies into matching wreaths for the both of them at the My Blooming Head booth. He had ran back and forth to put his own touches on Sandy’s hairdo and still finished both of the wreaths. His own was on his head and when Sandy approached, he took a knee and bowed his head to receive the crown of flowers from his own little witch.

A visit to the Upcycling booth had them making their own little birdhouse made from a loaf of bread that was a few days old, some twine and sticks. They both had a hand in carving out the little windows and doorways to make it look like the building their apartment was housed in. Instead of taking the creation home, they found a tree to hang it in and held each other as they watched the first red breasted robin land and begin to peck away at the bread sculpture.

As they wandered hand in hand on their way towards the Carnival de la Vie, loud music began to play and there were suddenly dancers everywhere! Sandy had never been a part of a flash mob before but he and Liam were both dancers in their own right. The steps were learned quickly and they laughed as they both joined in on the fun.

The last booth that they stopped at was Feygarten for a long, cool stein of Badsider to quench their thirst. Dancing, laughing and walking in the warm spring day had them both appreciating the ice cold drinks! They were allowed to keep the steins and Sandy carried them in a velveteen pouch over his shoulder.
