GRAND OPENING! PEGASUS STATION OPEN FOR CHILDREN'S DAY CELEBRATION! All FIVE DAYS!

- Come to the Observation Deck and see Rhydin from orbit! Watch the sun rise or set against the horizon! View some truly amazing starscapes!

- If you're hungry, the Star Wings Cafe will have an open buffet featuring multiple flavors of chicken wings* and other goodies! Ice cream sundae bar included!

- Be sure to visit the Zero-G Play Park! Ever thought that the worst part of a playground jungle gym was that pesky gravity pulling you down? Well, that's not a problem here! Multi-level arrangements of bars and hoops in all sizes in a zero-gravity environment make the Zero-G Play Park a fantastic place to try out some acrobatics without fear of falling hard. (All surfaces and equipment padded against unexpected impact.)

- For the more adventurous, EVA suits are available to anyone wishing to indulge in a little spacewalk. (Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or older child.)


Since many folks might be wary of travelling to orbit via transmat, complimentary shuttle service will be available. A temporary landing pad will be set up alongside the South Gate road, just south of the city walls nead Old Temple. Thanks to Lirssa al-Amat for suggesting reliable shuttle pilots, and to Chloe Varden and Thr'far for volunteering their aid in organizing the service.


((This is a board-only vapored event... have fun!))

((*apologies for the bad pun))

Pegasus Station is open during the festival for anyone that wants to experience Zero G, have a spacewalk enjoy a fantastic view of the stars, planets, and much more!

Beginning at 9 by the Eastern Clock, the Children's Day Festival will be held on the open grounds between the Rhydin Observatory Complex and Botanical Garden. Free food and non alcoholic drinks will be available on the first level of the Observatory in the cafe. Pizza from Nicole's Bistro, cookies, cakes, and cinnamon rolls from Divine Delights Bakery, and chocolates made by Governor Katt Batten are just some of the delicious treats available to delight the taste buds! Cotton candy, funnel cake, pop corn, and other traditional carnival food is available at booths in the fairgrounds.

Rides just for the wee folks include a miniature train and roller coaster. Pony rides and a petting zoo have been arranged for kids of all ages.

Though Patrick had a race the following day, he was sure to make an appearance with his boyfriend, Ed, at the festival. They spent the majority of their time at Pegasus Station, but ended the night with a few scream-inducing rides and a carnival game where Trick was able to show off his superior aim and reflexes to win the biggest prize for Ed.

As stated above, Ed attended the festival with his boyfriend Trick. They spent most of their time on Pegasus Station, because SPACE! And romantic sunset from SPACE. He took home a giant Bulbasaur plushie, won for him by his amazing boyfriend, and was the happiest boy ever.

And once more, the Easter Bunny showed up! This time in the cute puffy shorts with fluffy tail and waistcoat and top hat with ears. But she'd put on a pair of high top sneakers. She sat comfortably on park benches, surrounded by giant flowers and baskets of Easter Goodies.

The Easter Bunny cheerfully posed for photos and handed out the baskets, filled with candy and featuring a Feisty Pet stuffed animal. Each one of the stuffies were warded against dirt and destructions, and also could ward off closet monsters, creatures under the bed, and other bad dreams. They were fierce!

(Feisty Pets! Pick your own! The 'warding' is optional. Pharlen will always give the recipient's favorite candies, or, sugar free, celestial, or even all meat or toys as required. She has Easter Bunny powers and knows all.)

Was this... a DATE? Desdenova had randomly asked Nile if she wanted to go to the Children's Day festival with him. And she'd happily agreed. That counted as a date, probably. Desdenova was wearing a suit, after all, and Nile in a cute sundress and sandals. Except they were talking about smashing snow-cones into their faces.

Desdenova loved merry-go-rounds, and dragged Nile to ride a time or ten, changing horses every time. Then both scooted through the crowd, grabbing as much of the goodies as they possibly could stuff down their maws. They may have been mistaken as particularly well dressed small dragons at that point.

"Space," Nile pointed out, grabbing Desdenova's arm and pointing at the shuttle, "You have to like stars and stuff with your name."

Desdenova cackled, staring at the shuttle. He bit his lower lip and eyed Nile sidelong.

"I'll seize when it takes off," he warned. Nile thought that over, then shrugged and vaned out her wings.

"No one'll see."

Desdenova looked wing to wing, then nodded and offered his hand.

"Okay."

And he did, the moment the shuttle took off, his brain misfired, his body thrown back against the seat in a harsh lock of muscle. Nile just shifted and wrapped a wing around him. Worried, but she wasn't a sissy.

Desdenova was still a little floppy when they arrived, Nile cheerfully helped him along to the zero g playground. Interestingly enough, the lack of gravity seemed to pull him out of the fugue a lot quicker than usual. Nile would remember that!

Usually Nile did all the flying, but this time, Desdenova was able to keep up, more or less, and they both cackled madly as they swung through the jungle gym and rolled about the playground. Good thing there was padding! Flying in zero g was a lot different!

They watched the space walking a little wistfully. There was a big NO from Desdenova's mom on his phone, and Nile had wings.

"We can watch the sun come up," Nile decided cheerfully. So they did, giggling at Ed and Patrick before dashing back off to the playground before the older teens could swat them. Or worse: giggle back!

Saila stuck to theme as she met up with her fellow part-time superhero to check out the Children's Day Festival happenings.

First stop, naturally, was Pegasus station, where Saila got a crash course in space travel from the intrepid Jackie. Plenty of time spent on the observation deck led to a double-dog-dare to try the space walk, which may or may not have been strictly mother-approved. Sorry about that, Pharlen -- Saila's a bad influence!

The teenagers spent some time laughing and chattering (see also, running into things) on the Zero-G playground, where they may or may not have also been spying on Des and Nile.

Back on solid ground, the girls stopped to watch Trick win that giant stuffed turtle looking thing for Ed. Once she understood how the game was played, Saila decided to give it a try herself. Her reflexes were surprisingly quick (maybe even inhumanly so?), but her aim was nowhere near as true as Trick's. The stuffed animal she won was nowhere near as big as the funny turtle looking thing, but she still kinda dug it.



As the girls were leaving, they encountered an Easter Bunny who bore an uncanny resemblance to the aforementioned disapproving mother. The purple haired girl was just sure her goose was cooked for talking Jackie into the space walk, so it could be that she accepted the offered Easter Basket with some trepidation.

...Then again, it could be she accepted it with some trepidation because the last time she did anything involving an Easter basket with Jackie, the pair had ended up in an alternate dimension.

Inside, though, she found not badmouthed eggs that needed to be actively chased down, thankfully, but a whole assortment of cool hair barrettes and interesting eye shadows. Best of all, the scariest, most ridiculous stuffed pegasus EVER.

Elated, the two teens snickered and chattered their whole way home, which probably means they're up to something.
