Shrugging to herself, Riia put those thoughts away and stared over at the high woven metal arch, with its rather large sign in front that read, "Talonia." The whole reason she had gotten to thinking about what motivated people to move around and live in certain areas was... well, a couple reasons, actually. First of all, she had come to this lovely city, and it was very well known for being a gathering spot for guildless mages. While not a human herself, Riia felt like she could qualify as a user of magic who was unaffiliated with a guild organization, thus rendering herself guildless. Nodding, she also remembered that Talonia was well known for its enormous and quite lovely water fall. Herself, Riia was not hugely fascinated by water. She preferred taking to the air over the land or seas, but the liquid was important for human biological processes, and really all of them, so she couldn't read too much into it. The second reason she had thought about specific draws to locations was that she had heard there would be a party here. Apparently, similar celebrations were occurring all over Fiore, but only in major cities. This one had been the closest, so Riia had subsequently edited her course of direction to head towards it.
A great lover of food, loud music, dancing, and all things associated with parties including drugs, the fairy was extremely excited. Despite her altogether extremely pure intentions for coming down to the mortal world (spread good and cheer and happiness, yadda yadda) she was, at heart, a creature who fed off of emotions. It just so happened that the ones she required and, as a result, attempted to cultivate and perpetuate in others, were mostly positive. However, Riia wasn't dumb to the fact that she could just as easily be a succubus or some kind of evil torture demon. Trying not to ruminate over that fact, the fairy glanced in her bag. Today she had prepared not only several bags and sticks of candy floss, but she had also begun a very special new set of treats. Frozen sugary mochi! They were essentially ice cream mochi, but instead of having regular old ice cream inside, it was compacted cotton candy. While the texture and flavors were comparable to ice cream of the same flavor, it was made of her special fairy floss magic.
Riia was extremely proud of this new creation of hers and couldn't wait to show it off to the world. She figured, there would be plenty of people at this part, and moreover, enough mages would be around that nobody would blink an eye at the special magic she had possibly imbued within the treats. Smiling, she tugged down the hem of her shirt absentmindedly as she strolled through the arch way leading to the rest of Talonia. The fairy was dressed casually, doing her best to blend in. With a loose white off the shoulder T-shirt that had bold abstract art printed on the front (with a black tank top underneath just in case she got cold- because at night, well...) and light wash jeans with a hot pink belt, she felt like she was expressing her favorite light pastels while still being a modern day looking individual. Sometimes, Riia had an issue with wandering around wearing antiquated fey clothing. This apparel was sure to make her stick out less like a sore thumb. In addition to everything else, she had also put on white sneakers, just to be able to run around.
Getting a bit bored by now with just wandering Talonia, not even paying attention to her surroundings, Riia figured she would try to find someone to talk to and maybe offer cotton candy. By now, she looked to be somewhat in the middle of the block party, with people milling about waving glow sticks and sipping on multicolored, neon drinks. The music was utterly deafening, but she was happy to be able to hear it at all. Moving some of her pink locks away from her shoulder, since she felt a bit sweaty and as though her hair was sticking to the back of her neck, the fairy searched for the perfect target. Oh, but before that, she'd better grab a drink, first! It was no good to offer food to someone else in their place before accepting something from the host first. She slid up to a bar and tossed a smile at the bartender. "Hey, can I get something to drink? Surprise me!" Riia had enough money to buy something special for the night, and it might as well be this. The bartender shook her head at the jewels she had held out. "It's on the Magic Council for tonight," she said, as she mixed up something vaguely pink before pouring it in a glass and adding a sprig of... some green thing that smelled rather fragrant. Smiling and thanking the stranger, Riia was tempted to offer them cotton candy, but worried about the circumstances. She didn't want to get anyone in trouble for being distracted if they were busy working.
So she went for someone who was right near the bar, who looked a bit more like a fellow party goer. As she sipped on her drink, which was utterly delicious by the way and made her even thirstier for more, she addressed the new person in her focus. "Want some ice cream mochi? They're a special brand," she waved her hand and a sparkling miniature fridge popped out of the air, glowing briefly before falling on the ground. Riia pulled it open and held out a box of the mochi to the stranger. "I don't remember what the flavors are, but they probably kind of correspond to the colors!" Laughing nervously, the fairy thought, she probably ought to know, but... well, she had been busy thinking about other things. Like other ways to make cotton candy into every single thing imaginable on this planet. If it existed, there had to be a way to make a sugary candy floss version of it.
