    It is hard keeping a serious expression when Kimber was trying to cheer you up and simultaneously throw you off balance, so despite herself Abigail broke down in a fit of laughter. She felt her cheeks heat a little at Elizabeth's comment and she made the best shrug she could with her hands where they were. "Becky!" the young mage squeaked out between giggles, "Come in, meet Liz! And save me."
  2. Abigail had a big grin on her face upon seeing her ghostly big fosster sister, feeling some of the anxiety over being in an unfamiiar place abate, and she had reciprocated the big hug with one of her own. She bobbed her head in greeting to Daphne and Aquaria and choose to answer the latter's question first. "Well, I eat eggs and some dairy products, like cheese too, but yes I mostly restrict myself to plants." She shrugged and made a small throwing away gesture. "I don't really like the smell of meat. Especially cooked meat." She gave an involuntary little shudder at some distant memory.

  4. In order to make sure the Refs accurately count all your IC posts and award you the due amount of power points, please post with a list of all the threads in which your player character, NPC or sidekick posted IC this month (including the News forum). This topic will automatically close on the seventh day of the following month at Midnight EST. Also list any threads which you are GMing. GM posts count as double and can be assigned to whichever of your characters needs a 'push'. When you make your list, post a link to your first post for the month for each IC thread so we can jump right to it. When you start a thread, make sure IC is the first tag and topic prefix of the In Character thread, and OOC is in the first tag and topic prefix of the Out Of Character thread. It's not required, but additional tags including the major players and locations are viewed as a courtesy. Please list your threads in alphabetical order. Please clearly note any threads in which you are both player and GM/running an NPC. Please list your threads in a timely manner. Extending the deadline one week into the following month is already a grace period. If you've done any "extracurriculars" -- artwork, HellQ, 20 Questions, NPC, vignettes, guidebook pages, etc. -- please be sure to list them along with your active threads. For more information on ways to earn power points, see Character Advancement and Awards in the House Rules section of the Guide. Post counts should be formatted similar to the following: To make clear how many posts from rollover and GM posts ar assigned to each character. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in your post counts being postponed or skipped completely. If you missed the deadline, see this thread.
  5. Abigail had only been to the castle once before, or at least the private portion of it, but she was taking her foster sister up on the invite to stop in for dinner. Not that Kimber ate food, but the opportunity to get away from Claremont and meet other people was one that was deemed good for the young mage. In either case, despite her one time visit Abigail had no problem finding her way to the kitchen, she simply had to follow her nose. She poked her head in, saw a number of people and suddenly became very self-conscious. "Uh, hello!" she called out after working up the courage to speak, "Has anyone seen Kimber? I was supposed to meet her for.. dinner? Which I guess sounds silly that she doesn't eat but.. I'm rambling. Sorry. Hi, I'm Abigail. Storm. Abigail Storm, Kimber's sister."

    Her sister's hug did the trick and Abigail felt self-feeding spiral of panic abate but she made no move to pull herself away. It reminded her of when she was little and how Kimber always managed to lift her spirits even as the young mage tried to adjust to living in this world. "One of Krampus' attacks managed to crack my barrier, just rimed up my hand a little, no big deal," Abby said with a shrug, a little hurt was nothing to worry about when she'd suffered far worse at a much younger age. At her roommate's question she cast her eyes at the mirror they had hanging on the back of their door, and sighed at the three-flame crown that blazed without heat above her head. Still the question was a distraction and she felt a surge of gratitude and that something that caused her to panic in the first place. "Oh, that just marks me as my mother's daughter," she answered with a rueful chuckle. "Not sure why it's showing though, I'm not furious."
  7. Abigail gave Rosa a single nod. "OK, Doctor Thorne," she said deferentially. "Let's be about it?" With a quiet word, and a murmured gesture, her bedclothes transmuted into the regalia of Arcana, the young mage's alter ego. She pushed her hood back, revealing her face and with another word and gesture she restored some dignity to Rosa's attire. The jersey was also a proper Leaf's jersey.

    "H-hi sis," Abigail stammered out. She opened her mouth to say more, to lie and say that she was fine, all she could do was give her ghostly foster sibling a pleading look. But two sets of eyes on her, her inability to sort out her own thoughts and these foreign emotions, and now Liz was leaning over her and Abigail couldn't help but stare now. Her heart was hammering in her chest and instead of the lie she wanted to utter, she whimpered, unable to articulate anything. But the crown of three flames that blazed above her head said enough.

    Well, Abby tried to keep her eyes down but she glanced up mid stretch and her breath caught. She made a quiet, frustrated, sound and shook her head slightly like she could toss aside whatever it was that had come over her. She'd been living here in this dorm with Elizabeth for months, and this wasn't the first time they've dressed in the room with the other present. Heck, her own squad mate Corinne was significantly more cavalier with her state of (un)dress and she didn't have the same reaction. Abigail blinked, realizing she'd been a bit silent, and set aside her woolgathering. "I think they'll be OK," she agreed. "Though I probably should be a little more careful about collateral damage." "You were, are, so amazing." the sorceress added. "You just... just went! I'm always afraid about getting involved, I never know who or what could be watching."

    Claremont Academy, Room 301 Just after the Krampus Incident "We might have some," Abigail answered Elizabeth as they both stepped clear of the portal in their dorm room. "We can always go out and get more, if we need to." The young mage dismissed her portal with a flick of her hand and hopped up onto her bed, sitting cross-legged in its center. Her eyes unfocused for a moment and her Arcana regalia began to unmake itself and reform into a more sensible slipping off of school grounds after a protracted fight while everyone else is stuck cleaning up afterwards outfit. She was also very much trying to not stare at her roommate who was suddenly very distracting and Abigail didn't understand how, or what, or why that was or what it meant. Instead she just felt her face heating and she kept her eyes down, which in the small room meant she was watching her roommate's legs.
  12. Abigail hugged Elizabeth tighter with the one arm that was still around her waist, leaning against her hip and shoulder and contemplating the dark elven bodies and the fate that they had avoided. "I think you're plenty strong," she quietly responded her roommates question. "But I know a few ways, and people, if you are interested," she said, then added, "Better than the way I learned. Safer. Less Darwinian." She trailed off to silence and stood there quietly, just watching the people below. "Hey," Abigail said, after a moment turning her face to look at Liz. "What do you say we skip out of here while the Headmistress is occupied? My foster family should be here any minute. We could get some cocoa." She made a little gesture and a portal to their room yawned open behind them and out of sight of the people below, then raised an eyebrow.
  13. Pace may have slowed down some, but it's been fairly steady.
  14. Arcana spun away from the roof edge, and bounded toward Masque. She pushed her hood back, the enchantment that obscured her face fading away, and she had a wide smile for her roommate. "Liz, you are so cool!" she said, impulsively wrapping the other girl up in a warm embrace. As the mage held onto the hug, looking over Elizabeth's shoulder, her actions dawned on her and she felt her cheeks warm. If I don't let go she can't see, she thought awkwardly.
  15. Abigail shrugged. "They have something to do with one of Prime humanity's myriad efforts to annihilate itself," she said to Leroy. "The museum is right there, if you're interested. Admission is free." "But, no, my father had more important things to worry about." Which isn't to say he didn't lend some support during the second world war, but he was more interested in the magical threats that arose during that conflict. Like her mother.
