A Street Fair Full of Mischief
#1
Reply
Hi folks. :) Ready for some St. Patrick's day fun? I knew you would be.

Introducing the Celtic Street Fair!

The event itself will last from Friday, March 16th - Sunday, March 18th in a roped-off area of Padmore Park. There will be vendors from all over Ireland selling food, drinks, jewelry, clothing, traditional instruments - basically everything you could possibly associate with Ireland. There will also be period performances by musicians, dancers, illusionists, etc., and some stalls/areas set up with games, including the fun spring-fair stuff like a "How Strong Are You", "Can We Guess Your Star Sign", a dunk tank, and toss-the-ring-on-the-bottle stuff, plus some more traditional Irish games like handball, quoits, or Brandubh.

The Mischief
Unbeknownst to the fair-goers, there are several merchants or vendors who have seen fit to include a few harmless pranks into the celebrations. Among them:
  • a woman at a stall will be providing hand-fasting ceremonies, as a sort of cultural reference. "Come learn about handfasting and let me tie a knot around your fingers with this stranger over here! You're so cultured now!" What the customers don't know if that the person they are tied to will be magically bound to them for an undetermined length of time — they will be physically incapable of getting more than some set distance away from each other. Effects last until you can find a way to magically reverse them, or until you get tired of it and want it to wear off xD
  • a statue vendor will be selling figurines of famous witches and wizards, as well as key religious figures from Irish history (for example, St. Patrick himself). Some of these have been enchanted to put themselves into rude or lewd positions when no one it looking... so hopefully don't give one to your spinster great aunt, because you might shock her to death.
  • ale for sale spiked with very small amounts of veritaserum - not 'spontaneously tell all your secrets' amounts, but definitely enough to make your liquid courage go a little farther in the honesty department than it might otherwise!
  • flutes and pan pipes for sale which, when played, irresistibly attract every nearby [insert your animal of choice here].
  • a few pieces of jewelry that will get you really into the spirit of St. Patrick's day by slowly turning your character green, starting with their hair.
  • maybe a rogue leprechaun or two in the crowd to create some spontaneous little situations for your characters to deal with!
  • And just about anything else you can come up with! Just keep in mind that these are intended to be mischevious little surprises, nothing that would be malicious in nature or do harm to your character except perhaps their pride.

As far as my characters go, they're basically all open to mischief! I'd particularly like to get @"Ophelia Dippet" handfasted to someone whom she would not like to have at her wedding later this month, so that she can get progressively more freaked out about trying to find a way to break it. xD Obviously any volunteers would have to be down for a handful of threads since this would last at least a few weeks!

My whole lot are up for grabs for any/all things. I would love a combo of ale and handfasting tbh!

@Clinton Podmore will be getting a piece of the jewelry so he ends up with green hair!

Sign me up! If anyone would like a certain pairing (and more specifically, if my character in that pairing hasn't been made and accepted yet!) hit me up! Don't be shy :^)

So very in! Although I think you've got Rufus and Percy to plot with and that's it.

So as previously mentioned I'd like Ophelia to get tied up with someone - anyone would really work, but for maximum hilarity I'd prefer a WCAB male with a reputation no lower than six. If no one volunteers between now and my weekend I'll throw up an open thread.

I also want Rush to get tied to someone who is either Hogsmeade or Irvingly based because he dislikes both of those places and being unable to get back to the store would kill him. xD Obviously this isn't imminent because he doesn't even have an account yet (though he is next on the docket!) but I'd prefer a WCAB lady or a MCAB lady. He's absolutely blaming Yasmina for this and he will not be happy about it.

Tentatively think I'll turn Thom green for the sake of an open thread and maybe have Lock stumble upon some leprechaun gold for the same purposes. Alfred & Lou are up for grabs if anyone wants them for anything, including plot-related things if anyone has ideas in those fields!

Unfortunately no Ben for this since I can't app him until public opening :P

omg I love this! Skype me for plots~

Barney is getting handfasted because duh, of course he would! Any lady will do, hurlable or not. Just be prepared that he's going to need to do his bathroom business because I like to torture him. (Obvs hurlable would be ideal since he's getting up there in age but I'm not opposed to it being someone who is not available OR WC/UC.

Declan is getting greened and finding leprechaun gold, which he is going to spend on some ridiculously expensive items and then get into financial trouble. Looking for someone who sells expensive items that he might want and then harass him for the real money once it disappears!

Elsbeth is getting veritaserum'd and I'd love for family threads where she's just blubbering out truths left and right. (Confession of feelings for Leon and/or Ursula maybe if you guys are up for threads!) @Ursula Black @August Echelon-Arnost @Lyra Potter Also for threads with extended family/friends or even a stranger where she talks about things that will make anyone very uncomfortable. xD

I could offer you Thom? His company doesn't usually sell to individuals since they're a manufacturer but if Declan felt inclined to place a large enough order (like buying new equipment for his whole team in a bid to buy their friendship) or wanted some fancy custom-made thing, he could order it from Quality Quaffle & Snitch!

It's not a Hogsmeade weekend, so only if they're skipping school!

Ouf, thanks, Lynn. The Hogwarts roster had a typo that says easter break is from 3/03 to 4/01 and I didn't realize it was a typo but I was like that is kinda long.

If Elsbeth were to babble things about Ursula to Elladora I would not object :P

Otherwise I am high-key up for a hand-fasting with Minnie or Connie, the former would like a dude, the latter a lady and they will both likely be awkward about it and having partaken of ale!

Clint and Minnie? Since they've met before and he's already flirted with her. Could make for an interesting thread. He'll be turning green, too.

Whoever I have on the board at the time will be in!
Ari should be handfasted to someone super innapprop - or Belle, so the two have to play switch a roos, in the same house again!

If you don't have any better offers for her in the meantime, we could thread her and Ben following the Ben/Ellory thread Soph and I have planned there? It's probably not going to go well because #trashcanship and I think the idea of Ben and Bella hanging out tipsy and spilling their guts to each other would be amusing af. Plus they ~sort of know each other?
