[There's a big ballroom, a mosaic of a white stag on the floor and stately draperies hung over all the windows -- if pulled back, they each show a different beach-scape. The faint sound of waves crashing and seagulls can be heard.

In the center of the room, there's an eight-year-old girl sitting at a circular table. In front of her and nine other seats around the table, there's a teacup and saucer, as well a small plate. In the middle of the table is a teapot -- perpetually steaming, and with whatever type of tea the drinker prefers -- a sugar pot, a pitcher of milk, and two large plates of classic tea-party snacks, including cookies, scones, and muffins.]

It's not quite like Cair Paravel, but I suppose it's nice enough.

[Anyone want to come have tea with Lucy?]

[Lucy smiles back widely. Yay new person~!]

Hello! How do you do -- [remembers that Luke didn't know what that meant] Er, I mean, how are you?

[Lucy would curtsy back, but she's already sitting down, so she nods and smiles instead.]

I'm Lucy Pevensie, pleased to meet you! I haven't been here very long, but so far it's been wonderful. All the people I've met here have been very friendly.

[Offers Colette the teapot.]

And you?

[Lucy fills her own cup after Colette's and takes a sip. She smiles fondly herself -- she hasn't had this kind of tea since she left Narnia.]

Oh? Is Lloyd someone from your world, or someone you met here?

[Lucy grins.]

Oh, I'm sure. I hope he visits soon! And maybe I can meet him.

[Lucy nods eagerly.]

Yeah! And maybe some others to, to fill up the empty seats!

Storm had been leaning against the doorframe quietly, and cleared his throat politely.

"If there is a seat to fill, I am willing. I have not had a good cup of homebrewed tea in many long years."
31st-Dec-2007 08:08 am (UTC)
Lucy looked up at that, and then she nodded again.

"Of course! There's plenty of empty seats, sir." She gestured to the other eight.

Storm seated himself, giving his name as she poured his tea.

"This tea smells exquisite. Where is it from?" he asked curiously.
1st-Jan-2008 06:18 am (UTC)
Lucy introduced herself and Colette before offering him the sugar and such.

"I believe it's from Archenland," she supplied. Of course, Storm's tea could be from somewhere totally different -- the teapot's maaaaaagic, and Lucy didn't know about that property.

[Luke opens the door and peeks inside. It looks rather inviting, and the last memories of tea he has are actually quite pleasant, but... he has other problems to think about. He's wrapped himself in a big feathery robe that diminishes his figure. Lucy is probably the only one who'd notice he's a bit shorter.]

... What's going on?
1st-Jan-2008 06:21 am (UTC)
[Well, Lucy can't tell when he's all the way over there. She looks up from her conversation with Storm, breaking out in a wide grin and waving Luke over.]

Luke, come sit down! We're having a tea party!
1st-Jan-2008 07:06 am (UTC)
[Luke's eyes widen. Just tea isn't enough to get him to sit down, but the plates of food are. Reluctantly, his stomach wins over his mind, and he lets himself into the room.]

I'm not much for tea or parties, but...

[he finally notices the details: plush rugs, waves breaking a distant shore... he sinks into a chair, still wrapped up like a burrito of sorts.]

I wonder if this is what my father's summer castle would've been like...
1st-Jan-2008 07:21 am (UTC)
[Lucy blinks, offering him some tea as soon as he sits down.]

You've never been to your father's castle?

[Well, that sounds rather odd, but maybe that's how things work on Auldrant. Or maybe it's because of the sacrificial-lamb thing that Luke mentioned in the Christmas-dream.]
2nd-Jan-2008 03:56 am (UTC)
Well, I have--

[He studies the teacup, then remembers how to hold it. Oops.]

But it was worn-down and abandoned, except for ... well, other people used it for bad things. That's all I'll say.

[Only Asch would've remembered Choral Castle, because he was the real heir... ghfjkgc. He tries not to let himself go down that route again and takes a cautious sip of the tea, glancing around at those present. At least his voice didn't change much.]
1st-Jan-2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
[Matt walks in, yawning and stretching. When he realized there are other people in the room he jumps a little but keeps coming forward.]

Hi everyone. This looks like fun.

[He smiles and turns to Lucy, who seems to be the center of it all]

Mind if I join you?
2nd-Jan-2008 03:59 am (UTC)
[Luke manages a little wave with the one hand sticking out of his otherwise voluminous and extremely deceiving blanket-robe. If Matt is in any way observant, he might notice Luke's a tad shorter, his eyes are softer, and his chin isn't quite so prominent. Although it's possible someone attacked him with a cute bomb.]
2nd-Jan-2008 04:19 am (UTC)
[Matt sees Luke's gesture and takes a seat beside him]

Nice to see you again... [He lowers his voice] But uh... you look kinda different... Did something happen? ...Did that girl Tear beat you up?

[He looks Luke over again]

Is it just me...or are you... shorter...? That makes no sense, and you're sitting down, but I swear you look smaller... Maybe I'm just really tired.

[He turns his attention to the food and speaks at a normal volume again] Oh good! Edible stuff! I'm starved. And there's tea? I haven't had any since I was last in England.
2nd-Jan-2008 04:54 am (UTC)
[Luke shakes his head fiercely at Matt's whispers.]

I-I have bad posture! Leave me alone!

[That doesn't seem possible with his upbringing. Also, Luke is a horrible liar. He turns his head away and downs some tea... Definitely something different.]
2nd-Jan-2008 05:17 am (UTC)
[Matt pauses, a scone half way to his mouth, and looks at Luke again]

Uh... Luke...? Are you alright?

[He actually puts down his food and turns in his chair to look at him]

What happened? You've never yelled at me before.

[He might have been hurt by it except that it was obvious something was wrong]
2nd-Jan-2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
[Luke responds by turning away more and hiding almost completely in that robe.]

J-just leave me alone.

[He sounds like such a moody chick when he says that.]
3rd-Jan-2008 01:05 am (UTC)
[Moody behavior dually noted. Matt sighs and leans back in his chair. He lights a new cigarette and sticks it in his mouth, then folds his arms over his chest]

Alright fine. I won't ask...

[After a moment, he remembers that most people present wouldn't be accustomed to cigarette smoke, so he gets up and walks toward one of the windows, his breakfast forgotten already.]
