[66] [voice/action]

While I can't speak for other worlds, in Auldrant we celebrate the "new year" in the middle of winter, shortly after the longest night. It's a bit different from the way things work here...but regardless, I am curious as to how many other worlds share a similar tradition.

[filtered to the Auldrant folks with whom she has made conversation]

Would you like to have dinner, at this house, for the new year? We have some new arrivals, and I think it might be good for all of us to visit with each other. ...You are, of course, free to decline. It's just a thought.

[and further filtered, away from Asch and Luke]

...And to an extent I thought we might...be able to celebrate. Even if time here is a bit different.

[Then? Then she's out and about town, doing things. She'll stop at the bakery, the grocery store...briefly at the battledome, pausing at the programming station but not really doing anything there. Once, she thinks about visiting Professor Nebilim, but she can't be sure of how late the woman stays at the school after class, and she wouldn't want to interrupt.

In short, she's a little bit of everywhere, ending that evening at Good Spirits. For a change of pace. And a drink, of course. Facades can be such a strain on the system.]

...'Free to decline'? Why? It sounds like a great idea to me! And I'll bet it's been a while since everyone was able to unwind and find something to celebrate together.

[But organizing a gathering of this kind is bound to be a lot of work for just one person. Maybe she could use a hand.] Is there anything I can do to help, Nephry?

It's true, we rarely celebrate anything here.

[It helps, to have support from so many of them.]

If you would like to cook something? Ion suggested that as a way for everyone to help.

That's too bad. I know I haven't been here long, but I've already heard about a couple holidays other worlds celebrate - Thanksgiving and recently something called "Christmas". They seem like they'd be a lot of fun.

[Have a "hm"-ing sound. A pot luck is one thing, but he has no idea what everyone else's tastes are in food. What do lords and princesses normally eat anyhow?] Sure, I wouldn't mind, although I can't guarantee it'll be anything fancy.

Something "fancy" isn't required. It's just dinner.

I know, but still... [The beginning of a protest over here. In Sheridan, sand is an everyday (unintentional!) condiment, and you cook on the fly (sometimes literally). But for parties you expect something a little nicer, don't you? And he doesn't want to just bring in some kind of cooked vegetable again.]

All you need to do is bring something you think everyone might enjoy.

[Hmmm...] All right. I still haven't figured out what that'll be, but I'll give it a try.

Is there anything else you'll need?
