    "Yeeeeesssss!" Aliarey rubbed her hands together in anticipation as she watched Diana open the wine bottle and proceed to pour some of the alcoholic beverage into the plastic cup. There were probably some rich proper aristocrats out there that sensed their tacky way of drinking wine out of a cheap cup. The cringe. The painful horror. It was a shame she couldn't see the look on their faces. They were probably already filling out a mission request to hunt both Diana and herself down for pulling off such a blasphemous crime. Alia didn't care, and neither did her silly imaginations. The day was going swell. She did some stuff at the local winter festival, met up with Diana, and hell now Diana was starting to act a little more human than robot. Her trying to add to the conversation put Alia a bit more at ease. After all, if she wanted to hang out with a robot she'd just summon up her Draovis models. That and it was way better to say one of her very few friends was actually a living... thing. Diana was human, wasn't she? She never asked before. Either way it was way better to say she had a friend of flesh and blood and not one that was either fake or made of metal.

    "Free wine and free cookies! Proof that Christmas miracles exist!" She exclaimed loudly while raising her arms high into the air. Yes. Aliarey was having a great time receiving such blessings onto her life. Free stuff was the best. There was the matter of helping Diana out with what she had been looking for though. Her wishes had still yet to be fulfilled. Had the blue eyed version of the blondes completely forgotten about it? The answer was yes. Yes, she did. She'd remember eventually. Probably once all the cookies and wine were long consumed.

    "Thanks!" The cheerful grin on Alia's face widened. She took the cup that was offered to her and carefully held it as she took a sip. The cup remained there at her lips, hiding her mouth. Not because she was gulping the entire thing down but because she was trying to hide the weird facial expression she knew full well she was making. Freaking hell. People actually enjoyed drinking wine? Aliarey did not like it. At all. Maybe it was an acquired taste? Or maybe her taste buds just were not refined enough to enjoy the luxurious privilege of being attacked by fancy people beverages.

    "Mmmmm," Alia forced herself to act like she enjoyed the taste. She hated to lie about it, but Diana had used up so much of her reward from the Guess the Gift game just so she could try it. Normally she wouldn't really care. Actually why did she care? It was weird. The whole friend thing was starting to get confusing. She didn't want to disappoint Diana but she had zero issues with disappointing pretty much everyone else in her life. Life sure was complex. The cup was brought down now that she could fight the flavor away and force a smile. "This is um..." Jeez, she couldn't make herself say that it was actually good, tasty, or the drink of heavenly singing angels. "Whatever rich people say when they drink this stuff." Bingo. Just use her supreme lack of intellect on the subject to her advantage. That'd work!

    Diana was glad that Aliarey was so pleased with the wine because Diana herself was not so thrilled. The more she looked at the bottle the less she liked it. It reminded her too much of her abusive parents and their abuse of her when they were under its influence. She would be glad to give Aliarey the whole thing just so that she had a good reason to throw the bottle away and never look at it again.

    However, Diana was not going to ruin the festive mood thinking about the ghosts of years past. They were not going to ruin her fun on this night. Her parents had ruined her life enough and she was not going to let them hold her back any longer. Right now, anyway.

    Diana listened to her fellow blonde call free wine and free cookies a Christmas miracle. The huntress did not share her companion's belief. Then again, Aliarey had a different view of the world than Diana and in the former's view she had really received a miraculous gift.

    Diana had received one when she was rescued from near-death by a deity after being ambushed outside the gates of Silent Cemetery. After being shot repeatedly by automatic weapons and left on the brink of death, she had been carried into Silent Cemetery and left for the zombies to finish off. However, a cosmic entity named Selene rescued her by blasting the zombies to ash with a spell and granted Diana a new magic, a magic known as Lunar Guardian.

    Diana remained silent and watched Aliarey grin before taking a drink of the wine. Diana could not see Aliarey's entire face because of the wine cup, but the green-eyed blonde was not sure if her companion liked the wine or not. Maybe she should try some herself to see if it was any good. If she tried it, this would be the first time she had drank wine in a long time.

    "If you do not want any more wine, I will finish the bottle." Diana offered Aliarey a chance to have the rest of the bottle if she wanted it. If the blue-eyed blonde did not want any more wine, Diana would drink it herself so that the drink did not go to waste and throw away the bottle. The bottle was nothing that she wanted to keep as a memento. The only reasons she had hung onto the bottle this long were because it was a prize from the guessing game and Aliarey had wanted to try some of the wine.

    Oh, thank god! There was a way out of drinking anymore of that stuff. She hadn't even finished what was in her cup. If Diana had offered her anymore she was going to have to pretend to drop it or something. "You go ahead and drink the rest. It's your prize so you might as well get something out of it, right?" She set the cup down on the empty bench space beside her and even moved the plate of cookies there as well. "I'll just take a moment and open this thing already." That "thing" being the still wrapped present from the Guess the Gift game. "Kind of surprised no one has tracked me down for practically stealing it from the contest. They need some better coordinators over there." Alia shrugged, amused as she thought more about it. She took hold of the gift and sat it on her lap where the cookie plate had just been.

    Alia started with the ribbon, pulling one end of the bow and watching it unwrap itself from the gentle tug. That... was about as gentle and slow as it got. After that ribbon was off and all that was left was the thin protective lining of wrapping paper it was the end for that present. The blonde quickly tore at the once beautiful paper and ripped it apart. A large maniacal grin was on her face, but the gift was small, and so the excitement of tearing into the limited amount of wrapping paper was short lived. A damn shame. The fun part was over. Now all that was left to do was get disappointed at the gift it actually was.

    What had been under the decorative paper was a wooden cube. On the underside was a metal hook that could be turned. Alia had seen something like that before, and it was what she had thought earlier. An old fashioned music box. Was it fully working though? She had heard a few notes playing earlier when she shook it, but that was far from it being fully operational. "Well, this could have been worse, I guess." She stated while examining the box, turning it over and getting a look at every angle. "I wonder what tune this thing plays. It looks pretty ordinary so kind of hard to tell. Not that I am an expert on music boxes or anything." To find out, Aliarey took hold of the metal lever and began to twist it round and round. Then she let go and opened the box.

    Within the box the comb and cylinder worked together to produce a sound. It was a nice little tune. High spirited and good for the Christmas theme holidays. The weird thing was that even though it had been fully wound up the music was quick to become deathly silent. Actually, now that Alia realized it, everything around her was silent. Had the parade ended? That didn't explain no noise coming from the other people around though. She rose her blue eyed gaze and took a look around. Nothing was totally strange. Aside from the quiet. People were doing their normal thing. The parade was still going. Alia just couldn't hear any of it.

    It was then the music box turned into swirls of magic that sailed through the air around the two blondes and then took off and spread throughout the entire town. The tune that was playing in the box originally now boomed to life throughout the town. Not some tacky notes that only a music box could play, but full on orchestra instrument sounds and everything. It was as if a concert was playing loud enough that no matter where you were in town it still sounded as if you were right next to the stage. The music was not the only thing either. Now the people around them were moving along with the music. As if it was a normal everyday thing. Aliarey had been to Magnolia Town before. Its residents were not that weird. This was abnormal. The hell was going on?

    The trickster spirit's spell had now taken effect. The two were now in an alternate Magnolia. One where it was a living musical. And they were now a part of the intro musical scene.

    This Ain't No Christmas Carol - Page 2 Empty Re: This Ain't No Christmas Carol

    Post by Diana Winchester Sat 28 Aug - 2:02

    Having been given free reign to do what she wanted with the rest of the wine, Diana decided to get rid of it. There were just too many bad memories associated with Monarch '83 for her to get any enjoyment out of it. The fact that the wine was her father's favorite brand made the choice even easier for the huntress. Having made her decision, Diana informed Aliarey what she was going to do.

    "I do not want the rest of the wine, Aliarey. I will go get rid of it one way or another. I will return shortly." Diana informed Aliarey of her decision. Diana then calmly walked away to get rid of the alcohol. Maybe someone else would want it... if they did, they were welcome to it. The huntress certainly did not want it. The novelty of getting wine as a gift from Guess The Gift had worn off long ago and now she only wanted the "gift" out of her sight as quickly as it could be gotten rid of.

    -Five minutes later-

    Diana returned to Aliarey after locating the person who had given the blue-eyed blonde the hot chocolate and gave the bottle of wine to them. Once Diana had explained that her companion had only poured the wine into a cup the hot chocolate stand operator gratefully accepted the gift. With that errand complete, Diana returned to see that Aliarey had unwrapped her Guess The Gift prize and was now holding a small music box.

    Diana heard Aliarey muse that her prize could have been worse. The green-eyed blonde silently agreed. She had gotten a bottle of wine that happened to be her father's favorite brand and it had brought back way too many unpleasant memories of her childhood and adolescence. Diana would have much preferred to get a music box instead of the "gift" she had gotten. Oh well. At least the wine was gone now and she had re-gifted it to someone who would appreciate it.

    Aliarey then wondered aloud what kind of tune the box played. She began to twist the little metal lever and a spirited tune appropriate to the holiday played. It was not some cheap music box that struggled to play a few notes before suddenly stopping. The box played smoothly and the sound quality was amazing considering how small it was. Then Diana noticed something unusual about their surroundings.

    The band from earlier had gone completely silent.

    So had the crowds of people around them.

    It was then that Diana noticed that something else was off about this situation. The music coming from the music box now boasted a full "professional orchestra" sound and it could be heard no matter where one was. The people around them were now moving around them in time to the music. Diana was not sure what was going on and she was not certain what it was leading up to. Whatever happened next, it was likely going to be weird.

    "Aliarey... what exactly is going on here?" Diana asked her fellow blonde with audible confusion on her voice. Diana had never seen anything like this before. She was not sure what on Earthland was going on here and hoped that Aliarey could give her an answer.

    This Ain't No Christmas Carol - Page 2 Empty Re: This Ain't No Christmas Carol

    Post by Aliarey Casady Fri 10 Sep - 21:58

    "Kay." Aliarey gave a nonchalant wave goodbye when Diana left. She didn't even lift up her gaze from the wrapped present. Hopefully the green eyed blonde's absence was just temporary. Actually, thinking about it just a little, saying that she was getting rid of the wine was a damn good way to sneak away if she really wanted to. Hell, thinking about it a bit more, if Diana was so eager to get rid of it maybe she should have just asked for the bottle way before then and took it to Trey and the old man. Though, she really didn't think that Diana would just give it away without taking some for herself. It was weird. Not weird enough for her to bother the other woman and ask, however. If she said she didn't want it then she'd just leave it at that. Alia didn't care. She cared more about if Diana came back or not. Good thing the mysterious present was a good way to distract herself until she returned.

    Fast forward five minutes later. Aliarey hadn't noticed that Diana had returned. Her attention had been focused on the music box and voicing her thoughts aloud to herself. The strange turn the world took only made the distraction worse. It wasn't until Diana spoke up and asked what was going on that Alia realized her uh... friend? Companion? Long time acquaintance? Well whatever she was. The main point in Alia's mind was that Diana had returned. And she wasn't acting as strange as everyone else! Hallelujah! She wouldn't be alone in whatever weirdness was going on around her!

    "Oh, thank god!" Alia cried out with great relief in her tone, standing up from the bench and music box still in hand. "You're still normal!" As normal as Diana could be anyway. She wasn't dancing and frolicking around like some winter wonderland nutcase and that's all that mattered. Her gaze looked around again, seeing that everyone was still dancing to the music. Any minute now they were probably going to start singing. That's what the scene reminded her of now. Those weird musicals that played on the lacrivision. "I have no idea what happened here. If I didn't know any better I'd say we ended up sitting ourselves in the realm of musicals. This has to be a part of the event though, right? A weird, unannounced, totally unnecessary part of the parade. Yeah, that has to be it." How that whole section of town ended up being so extremely coordinated she had no idea except that must have taken an extreme amount of practice. "Buuuttt just in case we should probably get out of here in case this is not a part of the event and everyone here is just crazy or they're infected by some kind of Christmas dust in the air that makes you spontaneously dance like a weirdo."

    As Aliarey finished her sentence the happy music and dancing stopped. Not in a normal way where everyone just goes back to what they were doing. Rather it was a sudden stop. So sudden that everyone around stopped in whatever pose they were in when that final note of music faded. A chill ran down Alia's spine. The sight was a bit creepy and was more akin to staring at living mannequins than actual townspeople that were just moments ago enjoying the Christmas parade. It didn't help that a thick white fog started to cover the area as the sky darkened. Okkkaaayyy. So whoever was in charge of the event had a huge budget for effects. Hopefully. Maybe. Possibly.

    The parade floats started to move. Silently. Slowly. Then the parade stopped as a different float drove on up to be the center of attention. It didn't quite belong even though it tried. Its decorations were more suited for some Halloween ghost story with the hilarity of adding Christmas light for kicks. Suddenly, the townsfolk around them disappeared in thin air and were replaced by ghostly visages of them. All of them attached to chains and wailing. Yeah, it was starting to look more and more like Diana and herself weren't going to have a typical normal day in Magnolia Town. "Yeeaahhhh, we should totally get out of here. I'm not dealing with this today." She didn't know if this was a rescue mission, an elimination mission, or just one of those things that would have ended up on the job board just because. Whatever it was, she didn't care. She wasn't fearless, and she sure as hell wasn't touching this one. It didn't quite dawn on her quite yet that it was more of an escape mission and she would have no choice but to participate.

    The parade float then burst to life with a full ghostly band appearing on top of it. A different sort of song than before started to play. Two others appeared in front of the float to take the vocals, singing the words as if they were more in a musical play than just singing a normal song. The ghostly citizens of the town had ceased their wailing and were now performing their new dance routines. The new scene distracted Aliarey. A new thought other than fleeing the scene took over her mind. One of great importance. Greater than her very life! "Do you think they'll let me play those drums?"

    Aliarey was obviously not the brains between the two of them. Hopefully Diana could sense the danger of the situation and convince her fellow blonde to not take over the drum playing. Something else was coming and the band was just setting the stage.

    This Ain't No Christmas Carol - Page 2 Empty Re: This Ain't No Christmas Carol

    Post by Diana Winchester Sat 11 Sep - 1:25

    Diana blinked when Aliarey exclaimed in relief that the former was still normal. The blue-eyed blonde had no idea what Diana's "normal" was. Normal was a subjective term, after all.

    Diana looked around her and noticed that the dancing had still not stopped. People all around them were still dancing in time to the music, everyone except herself and Aliarey. Then the huntress looked back at Aliarey, who was obviously as confused as she was about this situation. The blue-eyed blonde mused that they might have somehow managed to end up in the realm of musicals. Aliarey then added that the musical was part of the event... a "weird, unannounced, totally unnecessary part of the parade" as her companion had put it.

    Diana was highly doubtful of her companion's claim. There was no way in Earthland that any of this was part of the event. Something about this entire situation was off in a way that was more than a little unsettling. The extreme precision of the dancers all moving in unison and moving perfectly to the music did not help matters. That kind of precision was achievable only by the very best dance troupes... or by advanced androids like Ami.

    Aliarey asserted that the pair needed to get out of town in case the dance routine was not part of the Christmas event and everyone was either crazy or "infected by some kind of Christmas dust in the air that makes you spontaneously dance like a weirdo." That description was not the most elegant, but it was certainly accurate.

    "I agree. Let us leave this place at once." Diana agreed with her companion. Moments later the dancing and happy music came to an abrupt stop. Even though she did not show it, that unsettled Diana a little. What was worse was the fact that all the dancers had stopped and held the pose they were in the very moment the music stopped. That gave her further cause to believe that there was something off about this situation.

    Her belief was only further reinforced when the sky darkened and a white fog began to roll in. Then the parade floats started to move silently and slowly, causing Diana to feel a growing sense of apprehension about what was going on. Then the parade stopped and a new float moved into the center of the procession. The new float was a strange combination of Halloween theme with Christmas lights that looked like they were added by someone who was not quite sure what look they were going for.

    Diana's attention was diverted from the odd float to the people around her, who had all been mysteriously replaced by spectral versions of themselves with chains attached to their bodies. They were all wailing as well, lending a certain "lost souls" cacophony to the scene around the two blondes. That was the breaking point for Aliarey, who stated in no uncertain terms that she was not dealing with this today. Diana was right there with her.

    "I came here for a normal Christmas celebration, not whatever this is." Diana asserted to her companion. This was NOT what she had come here for. She had come here for a normal holiday party with normal holiday music and normal holiday activities. She had not come here for a holiday musical, a haunted holiday musical, or a musical haunting on a holiday. Diana was not OK with any of this and wanted it to stop now.

    To add to the spectacle, the garishly decorated parade float now had a ghostly band "standing" on it and they were playing a song with a distinct electric guitar sound. Two more ghosts appeared in front of the float and began to sing the lyrics to the song. The ghosts around the pair had stopped wailing and were now performing a new dance with uncanny precision. To top it all off, Aliarey asked a question of Diana that made the green-eyed blonde question her companion's judgment.

    "Do you think they'll let me play those drums?" Aliarey asked Diana.

    Diana frowned deeply. On this occasion she did not bother even trying to hide her displeasure from Aliarey. Things were getting weird beyond description and her biggest concern was whether or not the ghosts would let her play the drums? That bit of absurdity was too much for Diana to bear.

    She was so over this nonsense.

    "Aliarey, forget the drums! There are other things we need to worry about!" Diana sharply rebuked her companion for having such an odd priority and frowned at her, glaring angrily in the blue-eyed blonde's direction to emphasize the point. The huntress was not liking this situation at all and wanted nothing more but to leave before it somehow got even worse. She was not sure what form "even worse" would take, but something told her that she did not want to be here when it arrived.

    "If we are going to leave, I suggest we do so now. If we are going to stay and fight, we need to start preparing!" Diana urged Aliarey to forget about playing the drums and focus on either getting out of here or preparing for a fight. She waited to see how the blue-eyed blonde would react to her words before preparing to either flee or fight. Aliarey had better not take too long to make up her mind.
