WHEN; December 23 | 7:00 p.m. | City Solutions
RATING; G
CHARACTERS; Everyone
SUMMARY; On behalf of City Solutions- welcome. The party don't start 'til you walk in ♥
LOG;
ENTRANCE | LOBBY
The entrance hall is sleek, white, pristine and sparkling. The decoration here bright and festive - it's difficult to miss the large pine tree in the entryway, and one of the security personnel will be taking your coats with a bow and smile (perhaps even without a bow and smile, doesn't everyone like the brooding and mysterious type?).

BALLROOM
Up a few flights of stairs or up an equally clean and white elevator is the ballroom, brightly lit and seemingly impossible with its darkened ceiling, twinkling with stars and the gentle fall of snow that disappears as it descends. Long, tasteful garlands of holly and festive greenery sparkle with a frost that isn't cold but melts at the touch. For light, candles float just high enough to be out of reach. Enjoy the panoramic view - the room's surrounded with glass windows. Take a seat and enjoy the music and dancing. Rock and roll and classic piano pieces. Jingle Bell Rock is strictly prohibited.

REFRESHMENTS | BAR
A little off to the side is a fully stocked bar and refreshment area, where waitresses and waiters carry glass trays of various drinks and appetizers. Enjoy a glass of champagne or plate of tiny finger sandwiches. Oddly, there are also donuts. Glazed.

VIP ACCESS
Only those who have purchased the superfly tricked-out cool people package are allowed in this quieter, exclusive bar.

POWDER ROOM
Even people in fancy dresses and expensive suits need to take a break, personal or otherwise. Down the hallway and to the right, you'll find the rest rooms. Don't worry, JARVIS won't be watching.

PLAZA
For those who wish to enjoy the crisp winter night air, the ballroom leads right out to the plaza. No, the palm trees may not be the most traditional, but the layers of decorative snow and pinpricks of light hidden in the large leaves are romantic enough, certainly. A glorious view of the City skyline, the night sky, and at the end of the night, the bright fireworks display.

FIREWORKS
At midnight, enjoy the bright shower of color and light as the Weasley twins orchestrate the final show, spelling words and manipulating trajectories in a way normal snap-crackle-pop fireworks cannot. Whether inside in the ballroom or outside on the plaza, it's impossible to miss. Santa Clause has been forbidden to make an appearance.

OTHER
Various hallways, the staircase, the elevators, and any other location are open for attendants to explore. Workshops and laboratories have been closed off for the event, but an empty room or three may have been forgotten for those who'd like a more private setting. JARVIS has his eye on you.

OOC
Feel free to be completely imaginative in setup, setting, surroundings, furniture, decoration, refreshments served, types of drinks served, music played, and anything else you can think of. Dance, be merry, and don't worry about the specifics. Put up an empty comment or a description of where your character will be and links to what he/she will be wearing or option C (the all-encompassing miscellaneous option). Action or prose is also up to you and your preferences ♥

[ For some reason, can't imagine why, the Doctor (with the ears) didn't let security take his coat. He got in with a bit of fast-talking, which he regrets a little, since this is apparently a charity event, but Rose needed him, apparently, and he still had the psychic paper. (Worth its weight in gold by this point.)

But when he finds her, he doesn't find her in any particular distress. She looks completely lovely and normally he would tell her so, but he's a little annoyed. ]


Looks like an emergency, this.

[For a moment there's wide eyed surprise and then oh. Right. She had sent him that message through psychic paper.]

Didn't say it was an emergency. Just said there were aliens. Come quick. [She points over to where the other him is busy nabbing nibbles off trays.] Alien.

[ He crosses his arms and gives her a stare. ] I know that one. He's harmless. [ Pause. ] Mostly. [ Another pause. ] Sometimes. Not the point.

Oi! hey now. He's not--[Well, she's not sure she wants to argue that point. All right then, she'll let it go.]

This is the City. M'sure he's not the only alien here. [And then a smile as she reaches out to smooth his lapel down.] You look dashin'.

I look like a monkey in a suit. [ Ever critical, he is. ] Don't know why I couldn't just wear my jacket. No one would notice. They never do.

[ After a pause, though, he smiles. ] You look good, though.

You're a handsome monkey then. [She beams a smile at him and twirls in a circle.]

Thank you. Think I did all right without the TARDIS to help me.

[ He will take the compliment in his usual slightly-begrudging way. He smiles to watch her twirl. ]

I'm impressed. Although now I'm imagining you taking her dress-shopping. Wouldn't that be something?

[She expects as much but as long as he takes it, she's good with that.]

Dyed her hair blue for her. She had blue hair for a curse then decided she wanted to keep it once the curse was over.

Seems right for her. Some things, you just get used to. [ He gets a fond look in his eye. ]

Sorta what I thought. [She bites her bottom lip and then sort of leans in, like she's about to tell him a secret and in a way she is.] Sometimes I miss her as a box even though she's brilliant as a woman. [And another pause for another 'secret'] He does too.

[Really her purpose in telling him something she'd never ever tell the TARDIS herself is to let him know it's okay to miss the box. He's not the only one.]

[ He looks a little guilty for a moment. How'd she know what he was thinking? Still, at least he isn't the only one. ]

It's the shape she's most suited for. My magnificent time machine. Course we miss her like that.

[She's had this conversation with the other him before and in some ways, they aren't that different.]

Sorta...home. Where all our things are and where we're safe.

[ He nods. ] Home. Best home I've got, now.

[Well now she's going to step closer and hug him tightly.] Still got me.

[Not that she's home or that she ever could be but she wants him to know at least he's not homeless AND alone.]

[ He hugs her back. ] Still got you.

[ No, she's not Gallifrey, she's not a Time Lord, but she stays with him. She always stays, no matter how dangerous it gets, and she cares. There's a lot of value in that. Believe him, he recognizes it.

He was alone for too long. Now he knows he won't be alone, even after he regenerates. ]

Yup. And m'not goin' anywhere.

[She knows he was alone for too long even if she doesn't know exactly how long 'too long' is. It's the reason she stays. He needs her so much and she loves him so much. She will give up everything just to stay with him a little while longer. Not that she'll ever tell him that because he'll try to send her away.]
