[SUNDAY SUMMER 28TH, YEAR TWO • EVENING • CLEAR]


The Firefly Festival is one that has been around since the founding of the valley. Lanterns would be placed in the river near Nivalis Lake to represent the souls of those who had passed in the valley, usually by the loved ones of the deceased. However, others soon began to see the festival in a more romantic perspective. They saw it as a time to stop and appreciate the people they had in their lives, whether it be their partner or close friends. Eventually the festival was celebrated town-wide, with the whole community gathering by the river to participate.

With the town’s decline, the Firefly Festival began to be celebrated individually. Those remembering lost loved one would gather by the river to reminisce and say their goodbyes to the recently departed, and couple went to picnic in the meadows, stargazing and enjoying the company of one another.

Last year, Ioana brought the community together for a traditional Firefly Festival, and once again they’re making this a community-wide event. By the lake, booths have been set up handing out lanterns to be lighted and released, as well as food and drink if someone opted out of bringing a picnic basket. Couples and families settle into the grassy area by the lake or along the river, enjoying time with one another to remember those lost in the last year, or to celebrate shared love.

[Belle is running this event! Any questions can be directed to her!]

Firefly Festival

Robin placed their dinner on the picnic basket, her idea of having a romantic dinner on the festival was getting together, besides, she had something important to tell him and she was praying that he could take the news without stressing about the pirate, she still wasn’t sure but she wanted to tell him in case she was right about her current symptoms.

The woman was a bit stressed about everything, if she was correct it was a wonderful surprise, but it could mean more trouble, the pirate was enough for Killian to handle, she wasn’t sure how he’d react, and despite of her thinking that he would be happy about it she was afraid of a bad reaction

The blond smiled as she carefully put the basket on the kitchen table, it was not time to choose something to wear. ”Hey Killian! Are you read?” she asked him as she put on her dress and got ready to go out. Robin approached Killian and softly poked him. ”Come on lazy, let’s get going, I want a good spot.” she said tickling him before walking to the front door.

Firefly Festival

Fiona had a small surprise for Ender, sure they were just supposed to go to the firefly festival together, but somehow not taking anything sounded wrong, they were there to enjoy the festivities, and even if it was also to pay respect for the dead she felt obligated to take something to eat, she was taking Ender because it was easier for her to light the lantern with someone she trusted, she trusted him, he knew about her and she wanted him to be there, so the best she could do to thank him for his presence was to take him some food.

The blond finished covering the cupcakes, making small and cute designs in it. Baking wasn’t too different from sewing so it was sort of like a second talent, a talent she only uses when she needs to.

When she was other the blonde walked out the door of her house, ready for the festival and for a serene time with her friend, hopefully he could find her in the crowd even if she wasn’t going to stay too far away from the entrance. Once there, Fiona stood still waiting for Ender to come.

Firefly Festiva

It was that time of the year again, that time where Maxine was forced to go to the firefly festival; to the young woman it made no sense, she could pay respect for the departed in any day, why was the firefly festival so special? What was so special about that day that she had to go? She didn’t know the answer but her grandmother always insisted for her to go. Max visits her parents’ grave once a week and to her, a festival like that it’s irrelevant to her.

Giving in to her grandmother’s request, the woman walked over to the festival location, it was still early, but perhaps she could see what they had before buying a lantern. Book in one hand, the other hand in a pocket, she walked over to the quietest location she could find, with a lamp and sat on the ground waiting for it to get more populated as she continued to read her book.

Summer 28, Year 2
Evening
TAG: Open, Max Smith (Tecri)

Festivals were great fun for Myra, who often found work telling fortunes when everyone was out and about to have a good time. In this case, she had only followed the small crowd of people to the lake side out of curiosity. It seemed pleasant enough, with lanterns being given out along side food carts that had delicious aromas drifting from them.

Standing off to the side a little, she adjusted her veil. If she could drum up a little bit of business, or at least get her name out, she wanted to look the part. But if no fortunes were told, she'd still enjoy herself.

Glancing down she realized she had ended up beside a young woman with a book. Compared to the others bustling about, she seemed much more engaged with her reading then the festival. Smiling, Myra bent towards the young woman.

"May I ask what you are reading? It must be hard to put down, if you're reading it in the midst of all this."

When Mal heard that there would be a festival this night, only two days after he arrived into the valley, he thought it was best to capitalize on it and meet new faces. He remembered what Kri had said to him at the train station, that he would have to put himself out there for people who had the wrong idea about who he was.

He was tall and cut an imposing profile with the sharp angles of his face. He was well-muscled and it was evident even underneath the suit he wore. His hair was combed, his face shaven, and his steely-blue eyes searched the many booths for some clue as to what to do.

He was used to formal evening parties where servers would arrive with trays full of aperitifs and expensive hor d'oeuvres at the beginning of the party before the catering would reveal the rest of the course, which of course, would be served to him. Here, he was expected to come up and purchase his own meal, as he didn't have the forethought to bring his own picnic basket as he saw other people had. It was very different than what he was used.

This was definitely another world to him and he wandered, a bit lost. He browsed the booths with the lanterns being handed out and paused when he saw a hot dog stand. He walked over to the vendor, curious. Mal tilted his head and asked, "Is this some sort of miracle sausage-sandwich hybrid?"

Killian was always worried about the pirate. It was something he couldn’t help. He knew ear gave the pirate more power over him, but Killian couldn’t help being afraid of something that could possibly harm the people he cared about. What if one day the pirate decided he wouldn’t listen to Robin anymore, or that Ender was in his way? Killian couldn’t live with himself if he hurt either one of them.

He heard Robin calling for him as he secured the last few buttons of his vest. She approached him, tickling his side softly, causing his body to shirt to avoid the sensation. ”Come on lazy, let’s get going, I want a good spot.” She headed towards the door, leaving Killian alone in the bedroom.

“I’m coming,” he called, grabbing his watch from the bedside table, fastening it to his wrist as he left the bedroom. He approached her, kissing her on the cheek. “Ready when you are captain,” he said with a wink.

HAYDEN GREENE
Festival Post



“Thank you.” Hayden thanked the man who had given her the beautiful lantern in exchange for the money she had placed on the counter, and took the delicate thing into her hands before walking away, her pregnant dog with her slightly swollen belly following after her. For gaining so much puppy weight, the chocolate Husky was still quite accurate in knowing just where to get under Hayden’s feet, causing her to have to be careful as she walked while the dog trailed after her, occasionally raising up on her paws to try and sniff at the lantern in her hands.

“We did this last year, and I’m not letting you touch it. Or do you not remember I had to buy a new lantern last year because you ate it?” She asked. The dog whined at her tone even if she didn’t understand the context, and panted as she finally stopped trying to jump up and trailed after Hayden. The smells of the booths were driving her dog crazy, she could tell, and she had no reason to bring a picnic basket since she only planned on being here to release her lantern for her mother and father as she did every year since she had arrived in the valley.

She remembered at one point in time that unless she was at work, that was the only time the rest of the valley would see her attend anything. Things were becoming so different, and with the things that had went on since spring started, she was only getting better at interacting with the rest of the valley. For better or for worse that was.

Though she stopped upon a curious sentence uttered from a man standing by the hot dog stand. She had planned to stop there anyway, but she had to keep herself from snorting a laugh at the man’s sentence. “Yes. I thought everyone knew that they recently came up with a way to breed sandwiches and sausages. I hear the sandwiches are very stubborn about it.” She mentioned with a soft shrug. “One please.” She said to the vendor who gave her a nod. “Actually,” she said to the man, now clearly done with her sarcasm. “They’re called hot dogs. Though coincidentally they’re not made from dogs. You know, it case that was your next question.”

SCOUT LAYTON
Festival Post



They had come to the Festival altogether. She, Janet, Lucille, and Jason. All of them had come to honor the same person. But Scout was out here by herself, holding onto the lantern she had purchased upon arriving as she stared out at the lake. Her father was a hard topic for her, and for some reason she had always preferred to grieve alone and in silence. By now the others were used to it, and they’d go off somewhere together to wait for the lantern lighting and leave Scout to do whatever it was she wanted. It had always been the way it was. They were from Westhaven but they didn’t have festivals like this one there.

It was every year around this time that Scout felt closest to her father. She felt like she could still give him the love he had always deserved here more than anywhere else. The lanterns filling the sky gave her hope every year that maybe he’d know she still loved him just as much as she did when he was alive, and that she’d never let his memory die. But it also filled her with a sadness she often found she didn’t know what to do with. Swallowing that feeling, she took out her textbook and began thumbing through the pages as she waited for things to kick up during the festival.

Summer 28

Mal heard a snorting laugh and it caused him to whirl around and attend to a woman and her dog. She didn't seem too much younger than he was. She had smokey blue eyes and long, caramel-colored hair. Mallachy spun the ring on his middle finger, feeling the metal, which was now warmed by his constantly rubbing his thumb along the ring.

He didn't detect the sarcasm in her voice when she spoke and took her words at face value. All he could think of was that food didn't breed and it was more likely that the hot dog in its bun was born from human creativity. He was about to challenge her assertion by saying that food doesn't breed together to create new foods when she ordered a hot dog on a bun.

And he realized that that was how you got the meal. He took out his wallet and pulled out some money. He looked to the vendor. "I would love one, too, sir." And he glowed with pride as he took the hotdog. It was plain with the usual fixings, relish and mustard and some ketchup. He was about to take a bite when the new lady mentioned that they were called hot dogs.

He withdrew from it shocked. Did the lower class really eat dogs? And he looked down at her lovely Husky who looked a bit thick in the middle. What if she was fattening the dog up for slaughter! He had these thoughts in the split second between sentences as the next thing she mentioned was that the food was not actually made out of dogs. He looked at the hotdog in the bun.

"That actually was going to be my next question, but I have a new one for you: Is it customary to name foods after companion animals? Actually, perhaps I do need to try it to see if there is anything hot or doggy about said meal." Holding the hot dog with both hands and bringing it up to his face, he turned the messy dog this way and that to try to find an in to start eating it. He paused. "What's the most polite way to put a hot dog in your mouth? I wouldn't want to make a mess of things on my first try and it does look like it might be quite the messy endeavor." He looked down, his steel-blue eyes studying Hayden and her Husky.

It wasn’t very often that Oliver went to the FireFly Festival in Ioana. He never kept a romantic partner long enough to take them to the festival, and he didn’t want the women he dated to think that he would settle down. Instead Oliver would make the occasional stop at the festival to honor his departed father. Without him, Oliver wouldn’t be the success he was today.

He usually waited until later in the evening to stop by. That way he got there right before the lantern release, and he could leave right after that. For some reason he was compelled to head down earlier this year, and once he had his lantern in hand and turned to the lake did he spot an excellent reason to have shown up early. Perhaps he had somehow known she was going to be here and that’s why he had decided on an early arrival.

As he approached the familiar figure, he couldn’t help but shake his head when he saw the book in her hand. It seemed nothing would stop the siren from studying her textbooks, not even a festival. “I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see you with your nose in a book again. Do you go anywhere without those things?”

HAYDEN GREENE
Festival Post


For a moment Hayden wondered why he was staring at her dog like she was some type of Yuletide goose as the vendor h Not and her a hot dog. It was plain but that was always enough for her dog who couldn’t have personally cared if Hayden had outright dropped it into the dirt. Not that she would do that, though if she was going to be honest with herself the dog would probably do that herself anyway. Astonish he seemed and she wondered if he did think that the little meat cylinders were in fact made from dogs. She had been kidding when she had given him the pre-determined answer. But she guessed maybe some people didn’t quite know about certain foods.

The worst part was probably that being completely honest no one knew what they were made of. It was nothing particularly healthy, that part was clear, but at least they tasted good and occasionally it was nice to have one. It was probably something Eugene would have turned his nose up at now that she thought about it and it made her smile slightly, but he didn’t seem to be a fan of festival foods.

She was snapped out her thoughts as he asked her a question, and she looked down at the hot dog in her hand and then back to him. “I guess it’s not really that common.” She answered, scratching the back of her head for a moment. “We don’t have anything called a ‘Cold Cat’ that I’m aware of at least.”She said, looking down at Rusty who was staring back at her with large, expectant eyes. He asked her if there was a correct was of eating a hot dog, and she held her finger up in a signal for him to give her a minute.

She ripped off a quarter of the hot dog in her hand, squishing the bun against the meat so it would stay with the bread and tossed it to the dog, who snatched it in her mouth before wolfing it down like a ravenous animal. She turned to glance at him before shrugging. “Not like that.” She suggested. “But other than that no, I don’t think there’s really a…er, proper way to eat one. You just eat it.” She rolled her shoulders once more before tossing more of the food to her dog who acted as usual, like she hadn’t been fed in five months. “I take it you aren’t from around here then?” She mentioned.

SCOUT LAYTON
Festival Post



Scout had never known any better cure for grief than drowning herself in facts about the ocean. After all, different people coped in different ways, didn’t they? After her father had died, Scout immersed herself in her studies. It helped the relieve the pain, and it was something that perhaps she had hung onto a bit too much since he had. She spent a lot of time with her nose in a book, as anyone who knew her would be able to tell you. It had become a part of her identity though she hadn’t exactly planned it to be that way. Maybe she would have experienced life beyond her textbooks had she allowed herself too, but it was rare times with Lucille, Brandon, and lately Oliver that she was coming to do that.

“Although sea anemones are mostly poisonous only to their prey, some species are known to be highly toxic to humans…” she read to herself, silently going over her page again and again. Didn’t they have a quiz on this on Thursday? Or was that Friday? These days she found herself losing track of her own schedule at every turn. How it had come to that she wasn’t sure, but she wished she could get a grip on it again. She was lucky she was the type that could even pull all-nighters or perhaps she would have been as one would say, screwed.

And it was a familiar voice that pulled her from her thoughts and caused her to look up. She held the book loosely in her hands as she stared up at him, noting that he was also holding a lantern. She had wanted to be alone, and she opened her mouth to tell him that. However, something quite different came out as the result to her attempted sentence. “Did you know some sea anemones have adapted to live in cold water, but most species prefer the warmer tropical waters?”

Smooth.

She took in a deep breath before closing her book, resting it on her lap before reaching over to draw her lantern closer to her other side. “Do you have a sixth sense for when I’m studying? You always show up right when I’m about to get to the best parts.” She said, a slight pout formed with her bottom lip before the pulled that between her teeth. She reached up to scratch her cheek softly before turning her eyes. She wondered what he was here for. He had a lantern, and she knew that the Triston family’s patriarchy had died quite a while back, so perhaps that was it, but she didn’t know if that was the only reason he was here. “I um…are you going to sit down or are you…you know, busy?” She said, clearing her throat afterwards and looking down at the blanket she was sitting on.

Mal watched as Hayden pinched off a section of her hot dog, making sure that the bread was stuck to it and tossed it to her canine friend. The dog snatched it up and ate it in an instant. He thought that that was how hot dogs were meant to be eaten until Hayden said that any way except that was the proper method.

It still didn't give him much instruction. He looked at the hot dog in his large hand and then held it like a short flute. He had somehow made it the most awkward thing in the world, as his hands were slightly overlapped. He adjusted his grip again, not liking the logistics of it. He put the hot dog so that he stared at the end and saw that the condiments were a bit bare on this side. So he turned the hot dog around, fussily adjusting his hands once again. Before he took his bite, he mentioned, "Now, my sister always said if I were ever to try something new, I'd have to go all-in to really know if I enjoyed it." And he took a rather sizable bite.

As he chewed, his thoughts were very easy to read through his expressions. He raised his eyebrows and one could see the wonder in his lips, trying to curl into a smile despite the food in his mouth. He nodded as he worked out the flavor. The meat was fatty and the condiments was vinegary and astringent to balance it out. The ketchup added some sweetness to it and the bun was soft and slightly sweet as well. It was, all in all, better than he thought it'd be.

And the woman observed that he must not be from around here. He swallowed his bite. "A bit obvious, isn't it? It's marvelous here. The hot dog is wonderful. And I think I'm learning how Ioana Valley differs from where I'm used to. For example: I've met a young person the first day I came here and learned its customary to share shortened forms of one's first name." He smiled and it lit up his whole face. "My name is Mal."

The blond waited for Killian, once he spoke she put her arm around his. ”Let’s go.” she said with a big and bright smile. Robin knew the consequences of taking Killian out at night, however, it was going to be fun for them; they could just hang there for a little while before going back home, Killian could use something to distract himself and she needed a good set to tell him something important.

Once they reached the festival, Robin pulled Killian towards here a little bit. ”I think I just found our perfect spot.” she said pointing at a spot next to a tree, it was mostly away from everyone else and they could have their privacy.

”Thank you for coming, I know this must be unsettling, but please try to have fun.” she said kissing Killian ”It’ll be good for you.”

Firefly Festiva

Maxine kept reading her book, she tried to ignore everyone that tried to talk to her, either by glancing at them or just by being rude and pretending she wasn’t hearing them. Maxine hated when people bugged her when she was reading, she just went there because she was forced to go, she saw the festival more as a romantic environment than one where people pay respect for the dead.

It was then when Max heard someone, she initially ignored the voice and the person, but somehow the woman wasn’t moving; Max looked up and frowned. ”Treasure Island, I don’t this type of festival.” Maxine said, the annoyance was written all over her face and voice, but the fact was that it wasn’t the woman’s fault that Maxine was there,. ”You don’t look like the kind of person that’s here on a date, are you here for the lantern or something else?”

Myra waited patiently for the young woman to look up at her. The look of annoyance on the girl's face gave her pause, but she had not told her to leave her alone, so a bit more conversation might be alright.

"Ah, a classic. A good choice if one wants to escape into an adventure," she said with a smile. Looking around at the lanterns, she noted that there were indeed quite a few couples.

"Hm...is this a romantic festival?" she asked, looking back at the girl. It could be a good opportunity for fortunes, particularly about love. "I only came into town a few weeks ago, so I came because I saw the crowd heading this way."

Adjusting her cloak, she smiled, "And what about you? Why did you choose here to read instead of at home?"

It didn’t take long to get the lake. It was funny that the festival was here when not so long ago, this was also the spot they had finally gotten married. What better space to celebrate love than the place they had vowed their love for one another.

Robin led them over to a spot a bit away from the rest of the celebration. They set out a blanket and sat down under it, Killian holding her close as they got comfortable on the ground. ”Thank you for coming, I know this must be unsettling, but please try to have fun. It’ll be good for you.”

He nodded, arm wrapped around her. “Just don’t let me, or him, doing anything stupid.”

The first words out of Scout’s mouth probably shouldn’t have been surprising to Oliver, since she never seemed to put down those textbooks, but it still threw him for a loop as he processed the odd sentence thrown at him. “Hmm, good to know, but most people usually start a conversation with a hello you know,” he said with a smirk.

“Maybe it’s one of my super powers?” he suggested as she closed and put away her book. “You know every superhero needs super powers.” Oliver’s just ended up being able to annoy Scout with little effort. Not very handy for saving a city, but sure as hell entertaining. “Besides, I thought you thought all parts of the text book where the best parts?” he joked with a grin.

“I um…are you going to sit down or are you…you know, busy?”


He pretended to think for a moment before sitting down next to her. “Well the release isn't for a bit, so I guess I can spend some time with my favorite marine nerd,” he said with a grin. He sat his lantern down next to him and grabbed the book from Scout’s lap, opening it and looking at the weird images. “So what interesting sea creatures are we studying today?”

She watched his face as he ate the hotdog, at first raising an eyebrow at the strangely awkward amount of time that he took in trying to eat the hotdog in the first place. After a moment she decided that maybe, no matter how strange it was, that her staring was becoming more rude than anything else, and she turned away in order to toss Rusty another part of the hotdog, which the pregnant dog took to with savage chewing and a wag of her tail. She swore that one of these days someone was going to see the sloppy and eager way that Rusty ate and report her for animal abuse.

In any case, it seemed like the man enjoyed the hot dog, and that was good enough in the end. “Marvelous.” She repeated, thinking about the word he had just used. “That’s not what everyone says about them, but I’m sure there’s some person out there making hotdogs that’s thankful for your opinion.” She assured him with a slight tone of Sarcasm in her voice. It wasn’t meant to be harmful, though he could take it however she wanted, for as much as she cared right now.

But she was right and he was in fact not from around here. He explained he had met someone upon arriving who told him that shortening your name was a good thing to do, and he introduced himself as Mal. “Right well, I don’t really like any shortened versions of my name, but it’s nice to meet you Mal.” She stated with a soft roll of her shoulders. “You can call me Hayden.” She said before motioning to her dog. “And the food absorber over here is my dog, Rusty.” She said as the dog sat down, licking her lips as she seemed rather satisfied with her meal. “What brings you to our Firefly Festival?”

SCOUT LAYTON
Festival Post



“You should know by now I’m not exactly most people.” Most people liked to leave their textbooks at home when going anywhere, but not Scout, she liked to take at least one wherever she went. To her there was never really a wrong time to study. She rubbed a shoulder as he answered her question. She supposed that she shouldn’t have been surprised he’d answer like that. After all, she was the one who had named him Captain Westhaven in the first place. So why wouldn’t he make those kind of jokes when she gave him the perfect times to do so. “Sure, but I figured your super powers would have been more…practical.” She mentioned.

When she asked if he wanted to sit down, he thought about it, and she let out a slightly irritated huff. He knew he was a popular man, and if he had prior plans then letting her know right away was the best thing, though she didn’t want to admit that she would feel a little upset if he did now that he was here. She thought she liked to be alone, but now she felt that if he left she’d feel lonelier than she had when she decided she didn’t want to stay with the other three.

When he mentioned the release, she glanced at her own lantern. “Yeah. I think they’re still expecting a lot more people to show up.” She mentioned, drawing the thing closer to her side as Oliver sat down. “Favorite marine nerd? Do you know several marine nerds?” She asked jokingly as he made himself comfortable. “I wonder if all of them like to read textbooks as much as I do.” Speaking of that same textbook she felt the weight of it leave her lap, and it sent a chill up her spine. As he flipped through it, she took a breath, leaning against his shoulder as she put her attention on the page.

“Sea Anemones and Cucumbers.” She answered as he asked just what it was she was studying now. One hand still between his shoulder and her cheek, she used the free one to point out a picture. “That one can eject a toxin that will cause blindness if it comes into contact with your eyes.” She mentioned. “But most of the sea cucumbers are safe to touch…just not that one.”

They got everything ready and got comfortable; it was a lovely night, not too cold, warm enough to have a good time and not too hot to have a heat stroke. Robin looked at Killian smiling when he wasn’t looking, their time together was precious and she had to enjoy the most of it before the pirate appears.

When Killian spoke, she pretended to be looking away before looking at him again. ”Don’t worry, I’ll handle him, or I can tie him up to this tree.” she said jokingly. ”Don’t you worry about him, okay?” she said trying to land a kiss on his cheek.

As time went by, Robin felt anxious, she should just tell him, but what if he reacts badly to it?

Maxine kept looking at the woman; what the hell was wrong with her? Wasn’t she a bit uncomfortable by Max’s attempt to be rude and to remain alone? Apparently not, she continued to make comments and to ask questions.

”It’s not a matter of escaping” Max said marking the page of the book and closing it. ”This is supposed to be a festival where people pay respect for the dead, however due to the mood some think it’s alright to come here and get all cuddly.” Max said announcing her disapproval of such actions during such a festival. ”I’m sure the dead don’t mind though, they are dead.”

It was a bit odd, going to a location just because there was a crowd, it was not just odd but it was clear that the woman had a curious nature. ”My parents died, I’m waiting for my grandmother so I can do what I came here to do, forcefully, pay respect for the dead.”
