    Silver Wolf || R.I.P. || 357/1500

    In an effort to make it up to his side-kick for essentially ruining the Autumn Solstice festivities, Theo had invited the rather emotionally stunted girl out for a redo. The chosen spot was at the base of the Phoenix Mountains which held their Guild Hall, Beanstalk Village to be more precise. He wasn't sure if she'd take him up on something so silly, but he sincerely hoped she would.

    The Shirostume incident had been a huge oversight on his part. His mind hadn't been right. He'd only just basically returned to life, so he'd been acting crazy, even for him. A couple of months had passed and now he was more sorted, for better or worse. In that time he'd become trusted by Leona enough to become one of her aces, but this had also opened up a whole can of worms. His descent into darkness threatened to swallow him whole, but Theo managed to balance ever so precariously on the edge. The tragedies were mounting, but he truly did his best to navigate it without losing his grip or letting his goofy mask slip. His derpiness was all he had left to hold on to. Maybe if he could continue to make other people smile or at least keep people guessing, maybe he could eventually work through the grief and pain and heal. At the very least, maybe he could find his footing and a new way to survive.

    All that turmoil was shut up deep inside, though. Aspen had seen a glimpse, but there was so much more resting behind that easy smile and those clumsy feet. He waited for her near the tent that read "Snowman Building Contest", shivering despite the fact that he had his fur-lined tracksuit on just for the occasion. Normally he could adjust to temperatures with minimal changes to attire, but lately, he was having a harder time with that. Maybe it was the plant-replacement for his nervous system. Plants and frost didn't mix. Teeth chattering, Theo rubbed his mittened hands together and continued to wait, every passing second bringing him closer to the panic that she'd blow him off.

    Do You Wanna Build A Snowman? [Winter Solstice 2019 EVENT] D9XW7rx

    Winter had found its way to Fiore once more, it seemed. Aspen had a hard time believing that she'd been here for an entire year. An entire year since she had fled Pergrande. Time had passed rather quickly, it seemed, though the return of omnipresent snow, frost, and ice reminded her of her homeland. Being honest with herself, she could've done without it. The memories served to keep old wounds fresh, and especially now since she had just begun to learn about everything about the outside world, everything she had missed out on all these years, thinking back on those wasted, agonizing years was especially painful. At least, she thought, she faced the future with optimism. As much as Aspen managed to bring herself to feel or express, at least, blatantly following the motto "You can't be disappointed if you have no expectations". In any case, her life had changed for what was evidently the better, and even the girl, who was lacking in her expression of emotions, had opened up just a little, and while the process of beginning to work through and deal with her particular issues and habits had been set in motion, it was still nowhere near finished. Aspen knew that. The girl caught herself easily falling back into old behaviors, be it out of routine, drill, or even fear. Yet, so far none of Pergrande's agents, which she knew existed, everyone knew, had come for her. She had left behind no traces as to where she was headed when she had left, and she had covered her tracks behind her, so that much was to be expected. Still, that ever-present feeling of fear and uncertainty remained, akin to a constant nervousness that would never quite subside.

    Regardless, she had at least kept her outward appearance of overwhelming and all-consuming stoicism, trying her best to keep any attachments at bay, especially in regards to the guild that had taken her in. While she was rather grateful for Silver Wolf providing her with shelter and access to an immense plethora of knowledge at her disposal, not to mention the guild's excellent workshop as well, she had to be ready to abandon these people, this guild at the drop of a hat if she had to. If she was found out, if they were to find her, every second would count. The organization Pergrande relied on were like bloodhounds, and Aspen was sure that, in one way or another, she was their target.

    And yet, here she was, her face covered by welding goggles, periodic pulses of sparks fusing the metal before her together. The girl had volunteered to produce weapons for her guildmates, it was one thing she was learned in and good at, after all, the task proving easier than expected given her abilities. It left her with enough time to complete missions and learn more about the world, magic especially. Through all of that, though, there was another thing, that thing, in particular, carrying the name "Theo". The goofy Silver Wolf mage had shown up one day with the promise of adventure, and while it was initially hard to imagine such a thing, the soldier had learned that the Treasure Hunter was not a bad guy. Excentric, though, to put it mildly. It had its own distinct and unique kind of charisma. Something Aspen was reminded of when she felt a gentle tug on her arm, the girl lifting up the welding goggles only to spot the small creature, made entirely from purple-ish Jello, standing on the workbench, presenting to her a piece of paper. An eyebrow raised, Aspen put down the welding torch and took it from the little creature, opening and, of course, reading it before flashing the faintest of smirks. "Oh?, the thought passed through her mind as she removed the goggles before sitting up, giving a nod to the little Jello creature, "Let's see what you have planned then, Theo ...".

    -----

    "You called, Treasure Hunter?", the girl asked in an uncharacteristically teasing tone as she tapped her guildmate on the shoulder, her accent giving her words the usual twist. Aspen was dressed perhaps somewhat inadequately for these temperatures, her jacket and a pair of jeans presenting the only ward against the cold. The frigid winter, however, didn't really affect her much, her slayer magic possessing its own way to deal with this particular weather extreme. Besides, she was used to much, much harsher winters from back home. "Creative, I'll give you that. So, Theo, what are you planning now?". Her tone hadn't changed. She was genuinely curious, though. Of course, she figured that the other hadn't made her come down to Beanstalk Village through the snow and cold without reason, and indeed, it was hard to miss the festive liveliness that had befallen the settlement.

    Despite her familiar voice, Theo still flinched a little when she tapped him. By the time she arrived, he'd convinced himself she wasn't coming and was merely running on the fumes of hope that if he stayed just a second longer that she'd show up. When she finally did, he was shocked and thought at first it was wishful thinking. But sure enough, when he turned, his new friend was standing right there. Apparently Jiggles had made it to her and delivered his message. There'd been a slight fear that she'd be in the blacksmith area near the open flames and Jiggles would melt before he could complete his mission (he wasn't too smart), but that fear had been unfounded this time. "I'm glad you made it," he grinned, just as expressive as she was repressed.

    As she inquired into his plans, he flung his arms out to dramatically indicate the festivities. "Today is Festival Do-over Day!" he declared in a grandiose voice, even doing a little spin as if he was some sort of presenter at an amusement park or circus. Following this he sobered a little, shooting her a sheepish look while idly scratching his cheek. "Since I ruined the last one, I thought I'd try to make it up to you. You will be glad to know I've never been here, so I don't have any repressed memories to freak out over! So...yeah..that's a thing..." Theo was still very much upset by how he'd acted back in Shirotsume, though there had been little way to avoid it since he didn't remember the darkness of the place until it was too late. "Anyway!" he continued, perking back up, "There's all sorts of fun shenanigans to get into here! There's ice skating, sled racing, ice sculpting, hot chocolate tasting, snowman building contests...snowball wars...something about a frozen shirt... It's your pick this time! I will follow your lead, madam," the goofball finished with a deep bow, unable to be normal for more than a few minutes at a time.

    The Treasure Hunter's shock came as what was admittedly a small surprise. Had the other not expected her? It was of no matter. Theo recovered quickly, his arms flailing with a usual erratic excitement as he proclaimed that today was something he had dubbed "Festival Do-over Day", explaining that he would attempt to make up for ruining the last festival. Aspen had to do her utmost to hold back the urge to smirk at the man, her lips pursed tightly into a rather characteristic, stoic line, though the thought amused her still. It wasn't like he had to correct any mistake he had made, for the Treasure Hunter, in the soldier's eyes, had done no such thing. Aspen, as quirky as she perhaps was in her own right, was someone who didn't hold grudges, and Theo had acted in a way that was, relatively, at the least, outside of his own influence or control. He hadn't chosen to delve back into traumatic memories of days past, of course, and as such, Aspen had already forgiven and forgotten that incident. And yet, despite that, for some reason, she appreciated that still, Theo would try, this time not able to hold back a minute change in expression that lifted just one corner of her mouth into a small smile. It was the first time for anyone to try and make something up to her, and behind her smile, Aspen didn't quite know how to act, let alone how to feel. Was she happy that Theo had asked her to come? Was she happy that the man was, in his usual eccentric manner, trying to show her a fun time? Was that the reason she smiled?

    Suddenly and painfully becoming self-aware of her expression, she did her best to hide it, her head focussed on the ground before Theo with a lowered gaze. "It doesn't really matter to me", she spoke quietly from under the hood of the jacket, almost whispering, listening as her guildmate listed off the festival activities to her regardless, though. The Soldier looked back up just as Theo, with excessive theatricality, would bow before her, the smile threatening to return, and the girl thus quickly averting her gaze to a nearby stall. "Well, if it can't be helped ...", she began, raising her arm to point at the little shop that had caught her haphazard, almost forced attention, before taking a step towards the Treasure Hunter and, still without making eye contact, giving him a pat on the back that was more akin to a slap or shove, continuing in her usual, monotonous tone, "... what are you waiting for? It's fucking cold. Let's grab a hot chocolate and warm up", stomping through the snow ahead of the other towards their destination. Despite what she said, all she knew about that particular drink had been from hearsay and the occasional reading. She'd never actually had one herself, never actually tasted one, and despite what she would admit to anyone, should they ask, she was dying to know what it was like. At least she could recognize that the drink was served, well, hot.

    "One", she ordered plainly, the man behind the counter giving her a friendly smile. "Of course! Toppings?", he asked perkily and in a seemingly quite festive mood, Aspen simply shaking her head. "None", the man raising an eyebrow, but nodding in response, swiftly presenting her with what would appear as a boring, plain cup of brown liquid to everyone else, barely visible strands of steam continuously rising from the drink. Aspen, though, wanted to experience the drink itself, wishing for the flavors not to be muddled with any kind of additions or extras, silently hoping that it would be akin to this "Coffee" stuff she liked so much. Placing a few jewels on the counter, she took the drink, and brought it to her lips before taking her first sip of this illustrious hot chocolate.

    The girl's eyes widened, a frothy, creamy, and sweet, yet not overbearingly so, flavor filling her mouth. Visibly excited, she took another sip, taking care not to burn her tongue, and at that moment, all she could think was that this stuff, this hot chocolate, was indescribably good.

    Unreadable to him as ever, Theo could only hope since she was going along with his plans for the day that she actually wanted to be here. He'd take it for what it was, even if she was averting her eyes and turning her face in ways where he couldn't see it. He was sure that even if he could see it, he wouldn't be able to make heads or tails of her expression. Perceptiveness wasn't his constant companion. It only reared its head when it wanted to, and with people far more open than Aspen was. He would wait and see what she chose in hopes that it might give him a clue inside her head.

    Ah, her decision was made! Much to his glee, she was pointing at a hot chocolate stand. Being quite the connoisseur of sweet treats, she couldn't have chosen a better first destination. He would never turn down a dessert or anything containing sugar, as long as it wasn't spicy. Sharing such a delight with someone he hazarded to call a new friend warmed a part of his struggling emotional-heart. Once, not too long ago, he'd had two very close people to him to share treats with. They'd even named their squad after sugar. As they approached and she ordered, Theo's own expression would run the gamut behind her back. Fondness, joy, pain, grief, wistfulness; this was a bittersweet moment. The idea that he might once more form bonds with people like the ones he'd lost was hopeful and soothing, but also wrought with fearful agony. To protect himself, Theo wanted to shut himself to the things he'd had and lost. After all the trauma, it was his instincts trying to save him from more potential damage. Did he allow himself to have friends again? To revel in silly moments of chocolatey desserts in the snow? Perhaps he should keep it at an arm's length, just in case something happened and Aspen disappeared. Then maybe he could survive it. Maybe his distance would save her and anyone else who tried to draw near. It was just so very hard for someone who longed for acceptance from others, craved being worth something to someone else. It was a dichotomy he had no idea how to deal with.

    Once hers was ordered, his face promptly regained its levity, though it was a bit tight and forced now. No matter. He stepped forward and ordered quite the monstrosity of diabetes. Hot cocoa with the works: peppermint melted into the rich blend of whole milk and chocolate, extra chocolate on top of the normal amount, a thick layer of jumbo marshmallows on top, fresh whipped cream swirled on top of the topping, and finally drizzled with caramel and chocolate syrup. The poor vendor gave him quite the look, wondering how he stayed so thin with an order like that. It'd send most into sugar shock! After making sure Theo was sure he wanted what only an unsupervised 6 year old would demand, the man began throwing it together.

    While he waited, and despite the inner turmoil from moments before, Theo would pause to steal a glance at her, watching in amusement as she tasted the drink and lit up like a string of Christmas lights. As much as he wanted to gush, get the details on whether it was her first experience with it and somehow share in such a momentous occasion with her, the sometimes dense man had at least started to learn her behaviors. Out of kindness, he didn't want to take a chance on ruining the experience by being, well, himself. If he went overboard, as usual, the excitement he was getting to observe would retreat. No, he'd rather stay quiet and enjoy the expression on her face without her knowing smiling softly and wondering if this was a new way he could survive. Stealing moments like this for his memories without directly being involved. Watching others be happy without interrupting.

    Speaking of interruption, the sound of a cup on a counter in front of him drew his attention. The hot chocolate behemoth had been concocted and slid toward the treasure hunter once jewel was exchanged. As soon as it was in his possession, Theo waited not a second to bury his face into the drizzled white sweetness on top. It got on his nose and around his mouth and even on his chin, making him look like mid-life crisis Santa who lost a bunch of weight, died his hair black, and shaved his white beard into a goatee. His lips were licked clean. The sugar addict was quite pleased with himself. "This is delicious!" he squirmed, squinting his eyes shut as the sugar did indeed shock his system. Giving Theo more energy. Always a good thing. "Do you like yours?" he asked, though he already knew the answer.

    True to a child on a sugar high, his already short attention span abruptly jumped to a nearby scene. There were wooden pedestals set up with big blocks of ice on them. Three were still free, while two others had people chiseling at them. "Oh, oh, oh! Aspen, look!" the goofball hooted, pointing at it. "Let's go do that! Yes!"

    And with that, he was already on his way over where the attendant would explain the tools and the process, and assign them a hunk of ice to begin their premier foray into ice sculpting.

    The drink Aspen so obviously enjoyed also began showing the other quality it was named for, beginning to warm her up as soon as she had taken her first sip, a quality that was not unwelcome, of course. The hot chocolate didn't seem to lose any of its excellence as moments passed, every sip presenting the same sweetness that the light-haired girl had previously enjoyed so much. She turned, her subtle smile turning into an expression of surprise when she laid eyes on Theo, or rather, more specifically his drink that looked more akin to a stack of sweets than something that was meant to be consumed in liquid form. It wasn't uncharacteristic for the Treasure Hunter, of course, though the sheer optimism that this tower of marshmallow and cream would and could withstand the effects of gravity amused Aspen, the girl, naturally, doing her best not to let that show in any kind of form. She, however, couldn't suppress a subtle chuckle when Theo had decided to, instead of test the drinks structural integrity, bury his face in the cup instead, coming out looking like he had fallen face-first into the copious amounts of snow that surrounded them. He asked if she liked it. Aspen stared down at her drink, blinking for a passing moment before looking back up to her guildmate, in a tone that was soft, quiet, and somewhat uncharacteristic for the Slayer responding, her accent almost lost in what appeared like speech only minimally louder than a whisper, " Well, it's ... good". She didn't really know what else to say, and admitting any more than that would've undoubtedly embarrassed her after she'd kept up appearances.

    Luckily for her, Theo already seemed to have focussed his attention somewhere else, figuratively dragging Aspen's own attention with it as he pointed over to a what appeared like some kind of festival game before quite literally storming off towards it. It wasn't like Aspen had much choice other than following him if she didn't want to be left standing by herself, and thus, with a hurried pace, though paying attention not to spill any of her precious hot chocolate, would make after the Treasure Hunter, arriving at a marked area, large blocks of ice raised skyward lining a section of this space. Taking a deep breath, Aspen was ready to ask the man if he just had to do this all the time, if he couldn't hold himself back for once, her gaze, however, wandering to the ice blocks in question and, by extension, the people around them as well as what seemed like one of the organizers of this "contest", who explained that the goal of this competition was to chisel the assigned block of ice into a sculpture. Aspen, who was quite the capable craftswoman, moreso than most of her peers where she had come from, was admittedly captured by interest. She knew how to work a chisel, a hammer, a file, and metal was a material not as easily worked as ice. Or at least, so she had imagined. "I didn't think you a sculptor, Theo", she teased with a subtle smirk, but took her place behind one of the blocks, addressing her guildmate once more as she did, "Let's see what you come up with, then". The smirk was quick to fade, however, her ever-stoic look returning as soon as she began to concentrate on the material before her.

    It was as if a switch had been flipped for the young soldier, and as soon as the host gave the signal, she began carving away at the block with precise and trained movements, chips of ice flying off the block that gradually began changing its shape. Aspen placed in position the chisel, hammering with perhaps a little too much vigor to remove a large chunk when suddenly and with ominous crack, the block in front of her split, part of it falling into the snow beside her with a thump, Aspen staring down at it with wide-open eyes, mouth agape with shock. It seemed that, while metal was harder to work with, it was also a lot more forgiving than ice. She was sure she hadn't even used that much force. The large chunk she had tried to remove had taken with it almost half of her block, making it considerably harder for her to come up with something. The girl took a deep breath, an eyebrow twitching ever-so-slightly. "Guess I'll have to make do with something else ..."

    In the end, the girl had settled on an icy copy of her Iron Key, a larger replica of the original, settled on a, frozen small pedestal. It wasn't the most impressive thing, and not as entertaining as what she'd had planned originally, but it was better than nothing. This, though, piqued her curiosity, the girl looking over to the Treasure Hunter to see what he had carved.

    Grabbing up his own chisel and hammer, he gave her a rather cheeky grin. "Oh, I have am capable of more than I seem," Theo simpered, and while it was probably true, there wasn't really anything he could think of to back up that statement. Really, all he was good at was finding nearly unfindable things, directions, and sword fighting, and the last one was something he tried to avoid at all costs if he could help it. Still, sometimes Theo overestimated himself, which nearly always set up for some sort of amusing situation.

    Keeping up his normal penchant for buoyant antics, he started pecking and filing away at the hunk of rough ice. At first, things seemed to be going well. He wasn't terribly skillful in art, but he wasn't the worst. He was sort of in the middle of the road, but he did love doodling and making things. He decided he'd make an ice sculpture of his jello kitty sitting back on its round haunches at the base, its narrow body coming up straight with small from legs coiled close to its chest, and a nice big head at the top with giant ears. It was gonna be so cute!

    Or it was supposed to be. Much like Aspen, Theo soon encountered problems. Her ice-breaking had rattled him since he knew she would be better at this than he was. Between seeing her have issues and also seeing how good she was, the pressure was on. Also, just like Aspen, pieces were breaking off that weren't supposed to, no matter how gentle he was. The kitten's ears were the first to go, then the arms. All that was left was two round parts at the bottom, a girthy stem, and a mushroom bell top. Theo was just staring at it dumbly, trying to figure out if he should try to make it into something else or leave it as a mushroom. A mushroom seemed awfully odd to leave as an ice sculpture... but it was what it was. He'd turn it in to the judge, though it paled in comparison to Aspen's skillfully carved key...

    Unfortunately, what he turned in would probably have been censored on the lacrimavision, even though it was completely unintentional. The judge approached and looked over the other contestants' projects with a "hmmmm" face, but as she reached the last one, her eyes widened. Theo thought it was a good sign, that maybe he'd be the underdog winner. Maybe the lady just really liked mushrooms. However, as her brows drew down and she started to sputter, it was clear that the opposite was happening. Not only did he lose, he was apparently disqualified for carving a...

    A WHAT?!

    Shooting his eyes to the block they shared hues with, he now saw what she was so upset about. But he hadn't meant to! It was supposed to be a cat!!! "L-Listen! It wasn't on purpose! I promise!!!" squawked Theo, frantically waving his hands as his flushed face broke into a nervous sweat. "It's not s-supposed to look like a...a.... I-It j-j-just b-broke-- GAH!" the vendor was throwing stuff at him now, as was a parent nearby. He could hear the giggles of some other passersby, but the hostility was what he was more concerned with. "It was supposed to be my jello cat!" the jello mage tried to defend himself, but no one was listening. Finally accepting that there was no way he could remedy this without being escorted out by security, he flung out a fist to destroy his sculpture and bolted to safety near the sled racing. He couched to hide behind one of the larger sleds, face still furiously red. What a goof! Could he not just show Aspen a nice, normal time?

    He'd just catch his breath here and wait for her. Sledding did sound fun. Besides, if people were still following him, he could take a sled down the big hill and get away!

    Do You Wanna Build A Snowman? [Winter Solstice 2019 EVENT] LDzamIE

    Expecting a sculpture of impressive quality after Theo's boastful words, the girl's gaze first found the Treasure Hunter, who seemed to have finished work on his piece, and then, right after, his work of art itself.

    Oh, and what a work of art it was.

    Upon spotting the icy object of distinct shape and, it seemed due to Theo's skillful work, considerable size, Aspen, for the first time in a long time, as long as she could think back, throwing her head back in a display rather uncharacteristic for the Soldier, involuntarily breaking out into loud laughter in such a manner that anyone who'd bear witness to this show of emotion would've never thought the normally so stoic girl capable of exactly such. For the lack of better wording, she simply couldn't help herself, couldn't keep it together. Never, NEVER would she have thought the Treasure Hunter capable of pulling a stunt like this one, this fact only adding to her very obvious enjoyment of the fact that Theo had, single-handedly, one might add, baffled not just everyone present, but the odd onlooker and passerby as well. Jaws dropped left, right, and center, even the Judge that who'd been supposed to critique these sculptures looking like she'd borne witness to a Vulcan delivering a poem in perfect speech, such was her unbelieving expression.

    Needless to say, the Silver Wolf mage was thoroughly amused. Even as she started to calm down, tears in her eyes, the occasional snickered giggle would still come over her.  So amused was the girl, in fact, that only now she realized that people had gotten so incredibly offended over a joke this perfect, with a delivery this marvelous, that they had resorted to throwing stuff at the man, who, in what seemed like an act of defiance, smashed the statue before storming off. "Aww, come on!", the girl lamented, somewhat mourning the Treasure Hunter's now destroyed marvelous creation, a grin still decorating her face.

    Still, it seemed that, with that, this little competition had decidedly come to a conclusion, Aspen taking off after Theo, more impressed with the man than anything. She had to admit that if his aim had been to show her a fun time ... that goal had certainly been achieved. Catching up with the Treasure Hunter, she would find him crouching behind a rather large sled set up to get way down the hill. Somewhat out of breath, but still smiling, she stepped up to her fellow Silver Wolf mage, slamming her hand on his shoulder. "What are you hiding from, Mister master sculptor? Afraid of your new fans?", she snickered unapologetically before shooting a mischevious look over to the sled. She knew that the ride down the hill would be anything but smooth, given her Slayer magic, but it seemed short enough to handle without much effect. "Come on, Treasure Hunter. Let's get you out of here before they lynch you". With those words, the soldier reached out and grabbed the other by the arm, unceremoniously pulling him onto the sled before positioning herself on the same, pushing the thing forward and letting gravity do the rest. The track that had been set up down the hill seemed like it had been made specifically for this purpose, but that wasn't really important right now. As predicted, the feeling of nausea overcame the Slayer like a wave, the girl's grin fading into an annoyed expression that would promptly turn sour.

    While nearly reaching the foot of the hill, someone had decided to build a huge snow-creature of sorts right in the middle of the racing track. Wait, was the creature moving? With a monstrous roar, the thing raised its arms, slamming them down to try and squish the passing sleds with its massive, icy fists, in a similar fashion also deciding to take out Theo's and Aspen's sled. The girl had trouble steering the sled. It wasn't like she got to ride one often, the nausea not exactly helping, a glancing blow sending her flying off the vehicle and into the snow with an audible "What the fu-".

    Her jacket covered in snow, the girl would promptly rise up, though, the sense of illness fading now that she was finally off that damn thing, looking around for Theo, her voice turning into an irritated shout. "Treasure Hunter!", the words were spoken while she'd already taken one of her Iron Keys into her grasp, the metal changing into her submachine gun that was swiftly aimed at the creature that resembled more of a snowball than anything. "Keep an eye out. This thing doesn't seem too friendly". It appeared like her shouting had attracted even more unwanted attention, though, a few humanoid creatures joining the larger one, appearing as though they were entirely formed of ice. Aspen didn't pay much attention to what they were, however, the fact that they didn't seem exactly friendly taking priority for the moment. The girl, with a practiced motion, raised the weapon, pressing the stock into her shoulder as she took aim, the barrel of the gun lighting up with flashing explosions as she held down the trigger only a moment thereafter. Unceremoniously, the creatures were all gunned down in a hail of projectiles, breaking into tiny pieces of ice and snow before finally vanishing entirely, in Aspen's mind at least somewhat making up for the fact that their sled ride had been so rudely interrupted ... and the fact that she had not yet gotten the chance to thank Theo for today.

    At least she laughed, Theo told himself as he hid, ruminating on his latest fiasco, I've never heard her laugh like that. His still-blushing cheek rested on his knees as one finger drew awkward spirals in the snow. The fact remained that what had brought her laughter had been something exceptionally unfortunate and lewd, but he'd already accepted that it was just his luck. Even though he had many struggles, it seemed he was still capable of trying to find the bright side of the smaller, sillier stuff. Before long, his attention was drawn to the sound of crunching snow coming closer. He tensed, hoping it wasn't an angry mom, and thankfully he got his wish! Peering up at Aspen's smiling face he offered his own slightly pouty, wholly sheepish one in return. Next thing he knew he was getting whacked on the shoulder and hauled up to his feet. "Master sculptors and other artists aren't known for their love of crowds...maybe this is why?" the derpy mage wondered as, of course, his clumsy steps stumbled with her. Since he was already off-balance, he more than easily toppled down onto the sled she'd join him on.

    As they went careening down the snowy hill, Theo found himself laughing, letting the worries of his art-gone-wrong meltaway. He was sorry to see her smile go, but he understood why it did. "Woooohoooooo!" he hollered happily. Luckily their ride would be short, but it'd actually be even shorter than he anticipated. At first he didn't particularly care about the snowman in their way. Aspen was in charge of steering, and even if they didn't miss it, they'd just poof through the frozen fluff, no biggie...right? The laughter stopped abruptly, though, when he also noticed it was moving and...roaring? That wasn't normal snowman behavior. Too late he tried to help her steer around it. "Oh, crap-" The blow landed and the sled went flying, sending the two mages in haphazard directions. With a heavy 'oof!', the treasure hunter landed in the snow a distance away. Theo wallowed for a few moments like a turtle stuck on its shelled back, gasping for the air that had been knocked out of him. In the meantime, he heard the familiar rat-a-tat-tat of Aspen's trusty guns.

    Were they really under attack? Give me a break... he thought irritably, squirming around in the snow so he could see what was happening. All hell was breaking loose, more or less. Three icy human thingies shattered to pieces, but there was still that giant snowman that wanted to bash their brains out. The ground beneath his prone form subtly jarred under him, denoting the heavy footsteps of an enemy not yet seen. If there'd been a cup of water nearby, it'd have been rippling ominously. Angling his head a little differently, he saw a large shadow moving through the forest just beyond the snow brute. Snow shook loose from the trees around it as it walked, and soon enough a white, furry monster appeared. "None of these things seem friendly," he corrected her with a frown, finally starting to get to his feet.

    And then he was suddenly crawling in his skin. Slinging his body around as if he was suffering a horrible case of the heeby-jeebies and frantically flapping his tracksuit around his lean form knocked out a few blue creepy crawlies. "EW, BUGS!" he screamed. No, they weren't truly bugs, but he treated them as such by Mexican Hat dancing on them until they were making a blue paste in the snow. Right, the little things were done, now for the more pressing matter--

    The Brute had approached him while he was distracted by the horde of ice scorpions and clubbed him really hard. This time he was a little more prepared, turning his body into jello before he hit the tree and the ground. He bounced around for a few seconds before landing back on his feet. "Hey, ugly Frosty!" he called to the icy golem, running past him and curiously toward the Yeti that was rushing to meet them. Once he was about equidistant from each, he stopped to wait. Once they were within range, he used his jiggly jello legs to bounce high into the air with his hands angled down. A large jello mold appeared in blue this time, you know, to match the wintery aesthetic. It incased the brute and the yeti entirely. Theo fell back on top of the mold, bouncing a couple times before sliding off.

    Since these two were too dangerous to the other festival-goers to be left alive, Theo made the difficult decision to finish the job. And by finish the job, that meant not give them airhole to breathe so they'd both suffocate. The icy-eyed man couldn't watch such a cruel fate, though, having to turn away and only checking back a few moments later to note that apparently the snow beast didn't need to breathe. Once he was sure the Yeti was dead, he then turned the large mold into molten jello and watched the living snowman melt along with his sugary gelatine. Clearly, Theo didn't like it, judging by the firm line his lips had pursed into. The tracksuit enthusiast approached his friend, giving her a glance over. "Are you ok?" he asked, though he was reasonably sure she was. Aspen was one of the tougher girls he'd ever met.
