The Iron King Christmas party

Welcome the the first annual Christmas party in Faeryland, hosted by the characters from THE IRON KING. Everyone is invited, so come on in, grab some cider, and relax. Just watch out for the phouka at the card table, unless you want to gamble away your voice or future child. And whatever you do, don't make ask the big gray cat wandering around to do you a favor.











(If you haven't played this type of game before, just leave a comment to get the party started. You and one guest are invited. The guest can be any character from any book: Katniss, Valek, Harry Potter, ect. Just try not to have doubles walking around, that would be awkward. ;-) Other then that, have fun, be creative, and let's see how crazy this party can get. Also, be sure to check back, because this will go on all week.)















Ready? Here we go.



A light snow falls gently outside as you make your way up to the old victorian mansion at the top of the hill. The huge pine tree in the front of the yard is decorated with what appear to be lights, but as you get closer a swarm of piskies take to the air in a buzz of tiny wings, shrieking with laughter. Inside, you step into a large, decorated foyer with a double grand staircase, an open area for dancing, and a magnificent fireplace in the corner. The flames crackle in the hearth, changing color in the dim light: red and gold and green.

Several faeries mill about the room, but its clear that the party has not quite started yet. A troll stands by the long food table, eating cupcakes, and a trio of goblins play cards with a goat headed phouka in the corner. A fluffy gray cat lies curled up in a chair by the fireplace, where a handsome Winter Prince broods into the flames. Puck, his red hair sticking out from beneath a santa hat, is walking around with a sprig of mistletoe held over his head, a mischievious gleam in his eye.

  2. Puck sidles up to Erica.

    "Aha, my first victi ... um, guest!" He holds the mistletoe over his head and leans in, closing his eyes.

  3. Hi everyone! I brought Professor Snape from the Harry Potter series. He was waiting to see if Harry's up to any tricks, but instead saw that Christophe *cough* ERICA! *cough* and found a much better target instead. :D

  9. Music starts up as more guests arrive. Puck, brandishing a suspicious green bottle, snickers as he pours the contents into the punch bowl.

    "Let's make this party more interesting."

  12. I bring Sam (from Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver). We notice Puck at the punch bowl so we make a mental note to avoid the punch and head over to visit with Professor Snape.

  15. Talking to Sam and Molly, Snape takes note of Julie's advice and looks guiltily at Puck.

  16. I have a lovely conversation with Liyana and Snape about potions and dark arts.

    But then, I notice that one of the guests has leapt onto the chandelier! But I can't make out who it is...

  17. More faeries crowd through the door: satyrs and dryads, gnomes and brownies, piskies and leprechauns. As the room fills to capacity, a shout is heard somewhere nearby, and a hedgehog suddenly dashes out from beneath a chair, scampering up the stairs to the second floor.

    Puck leaps atop the table, clearing his throat. "Um, excuse me, but has anyone seen a hedgehog recently? Also, if anyone is looking for Snape, he had to ... uh ... step out for a moment. No cause for alarm, really. Just watch where you step ... "

  18. There is nothing like arriving fashionably late.... and not only was I stood up by my date, but I was just attacked by a rabid hedgehog!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Where is that Snape?! Molly, have you seen him? I have to say, this reminds me of that time a certain Hogwarts student was turned into a ferret... oh no.

    Catch that hedgehog!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Whoops! (giggle) What's in that punch anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ash, Prince of the Unseelie Court, pushes himself off the wall, walks up to Kristi, and gives a slight bow. "Since you have no date, would you like me to be your escort for the night?"

    An irritated chittering echoes over the noise of the crowd, as a very pissed off hedgehog glares at everyone from the top of the stairs, then scampers back out of sight.

  22. I brought Mark Twain since you are using his house. It has lots of dark corners, so it is perfect. He may be older, but he has always had and appreciated wit and dark humor. He will enjoy watching the goings on.
    I'm sure he will give as good as he gets.
    Great party.

  23. I'm crashing the party with Astrid from Rampant. I have egg nog with me.

    I think I just spotted a killer unicorn hanging around next to Mark Twain. *gets ready to fight*

  24. I have a date and his name is Ash! I always wanted to party with a prince!

  25. As Sharon and Astrid pass out eggnog, a dull roar come from outside, and a killer unicorn bursts into the room, snorting and baring its fangs. Faeries yelp in surprise and fear, as the raging beast charges and spears the punch bowl with its sharp horn. Everything erupts into chaos.

    "Everyone!" Puck shouts as Ash draws his sword and steps in front of The Story Siren. "There's a weapon's chest in the corner! Grab whatever you want!"

  26. *steps out of the hallway with Prince Charmont*

    "Holy crap, killer unicorn!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. "killer Unicorn jumps on Patch and sinks its teeth in the flesh of his shoulder*

    sorry I couldn't help myself. ;)

  28. I go to the chest and grab a bow and some arrows while Sam goes outside where it's cold so he can phase into a wolf.

  29. Howl is trying to come up with a spell as I try to call his wife Sophie to find a spell in his spellbook.

  31. I'm dropping in with Eric Northman from Southern Vampire series...brought some True Blood, but Eric's looking brightly at the impending bloodshed from the ruckus we've walked into..uh-oh

  32. The Killer Unicorn leaps off Patch, who staggers away holding his bitten shoulder, and bellows at the crowd. An arrow flies across the room and glances off its hindquarters, causing it to shriek angrily. Puck leaps onto the table again, waving his arms.

    "Everyone!" he calls, "Astrid here says a virgin can calm the unicorn and lead it outside! So, if you're a virgin, go right ahead and take care of that, will you?"

    Nobody moves.

  33. The silverhaired Roiben and and his greenskinned girlfriend Kaye strolls.

    Kaye waves and says "Hello we are here now!"

    She looks around and frowns "Now where is that Meghan? I think we could have a lot in common seeing as we both had trouble with wicked faeries"

    Roiben snorts at this,he then gets poked in the stomach by Kaye."Oof"

    Roiben regains composure,tosses his silverhair and says sharply "Now where is this young stripling of a prince who thinks he can challenge me for the title of most brooding and handsome of ALL the faeries?

    Kaye tugs on his arms and whispers into his ear... Roiben then adds "...also most skilled with a sword and a terrific kisser" Roiben ends his speech with smiling rather smugly.

    He is soon dragged away to the dancefloor by his girlfriend...

  34. Ash glares at the silver-haired faery and green-skinned pixie on the dancefloor, both somehow avoiding the killer unicorn's notice.

    "I would challenge you to a duel, but I'm sort of in the middle of something," he says, dodging aside as the killer unicorn charges him. "Perhaps later, when the threat has been taken care of."

    "Besides, didn't you promise Meghan you wouldn't duel anyone tonight?" Puck adds, pelting the unicorn with an apple to get its attention.

    "Shut up, Goodfellow."

    Together, they advance on the raging unicorn.
