Xanth's Grotto 2007

On the dawn of December the first, the quadrangle quite suddenly changed. The entire quadrangle disappeared inside an elaborate structure. Made of real ice that glittered merrily, the structure weaved a merry maze from its opening on the south side, around and around in higgledy-piggledy tunnels to the centre where a snow-white version of Xanth's throne sat before wending its way back to the exit on the north.

Over the entrance hangs a large sign that reads XANTH'S GROTTO in red and green, rimmed in white lights that glow at night. Atop the snowy structure are moving snowmen that are apparently made of real snow. One is taking off its hat to anyone who passes by. Another throws snowballs randomly at visitors. Two more cling to ivy garlands either side of the entrance, waving hello, and a third peeks over the exit grinning goofily as it showers visitors with glitter and snowflakes.

Around the grotto is a wooden fence, christmas trees placed here and there across the top and around the base, each one decorated with beautiful glass baubles, bushy tinsel and pretty fairy lights. Amid the branches and snow, imps dash about, popping out of the snow once in a while to blow raspberries at visitors or squeak a greeting before disappearing once more to attend their duties.

Clearly, Xanth is in the Christmas spirit. If you'd like to find out more, a signpost at the entrance explains what is going on.

ooc;;

Pay a visit to Xanth every day in the month of December and you could receive cash, karma or items usually only awarded through quests!

This thread is out of time so you can post here every day without worrying about your timeline or how many other threads you're in. However, it is still a roleplay thread so you still need to meet this forum's word limit! It's also in-character so visits should be roleplayed. ;]

How does this work? Simple. You only need to post once per day to visit Xanth. Your character can come in, pay their respects and leave all in the same post. Don't godmod though! And don't assume what gift you'll receive, just take their gift and leave. ^^

You may only receive a gift once per day no matter how many characters you have. It doesn't have to be the same character every day, but please only post once per day per player, not per character. ;]

Xanth will not reply. Instead, I'll edit your posts to detail what gift you received, so be sure to check back the day after you post to see what you got. ^^;

Merry Christmas!

Inimicus smiled for the first time truly in a while, he hadnt smiled since Halloween too terribly much, but he loved December. December always heralded many things, snow, the cold, St. Nicholas day, and a time when family gathered and spent the holiday together. He loved the season, he loved the cheeriness that people got into around this time, the way everyone seemed nicer to everyone like the holiday was some wonder drug to which everyone was exposed. He had some doubts when entering Elysia about whether Christmas would be celebrated, he knew it was in fact a pagan holiday, but it had generally been attriubted to the Christian God which did not in actuallity exist and if did was a Usurper to the Real godess Xanth, and evern further he knew St. Nicholas Day wouldn't be celebrated, that was a German thing and he doubted there were too many of his countrymen wandering around. As he poped through the portal into the EU turning to go to his favorite hangout, the statue, he noticed the change and smiled deeply.

God Love Xanth, apparently she loves the holiday as much as I...i could not serve a better godess

He wandered over to the entrance reading the sign smiling, so she wanted people to visit her, that was not a problem, he loved visiting with Xanth whenever she deigned to come down. He wandered through the mazelike tunnle smiling at the cascades of Ice, of snow and christmas cheer. Eventually he reached the center getting quite a suprise from the mass of moving snowmen getting whapped in the back by several snowballs, he smiled and almost skipped over to the arctic white throne of his goddess. Smiling he knelt before the throne, his breath coming out like a steam against the cold air, his cloak wrapped around his body as he kneeled. Inimicus smiled and spoke, in german his thoughts with the goddess were his own.

" Xanth thank you so much for this wonderful gift. I did not think this holiday would be celebrated by Elysians, it does my heart good to see that you make it so, I always loved this holiday as a boy, as an adult, the feeling and the happiness it brought. All honor to you as you deserve Xanth my goddess "

Inimicus stood up and bowed, smiling he left to wander around the new Quadrangle loving the new surroundings, deftly he ducked to avoid another snowball from the enchanted snowman, his speed was quite impressive of late.

Stand and stare, rub eyes occasionally and double check that your vision still works...oh and if you want to, pinch yourself a couple of times. Rince and repeat at least a dozen times in various patterns whilst you have your jaw hanging and swinging in the rather pleasant, if somewhat brisk breeze. Mix all these external elements with a health sheer and utter confusion, shock, and awe and let this go on until passerbys believe you to be one tomato short of a taco. Congradulations! You have just made Salem's reaction to the maze of ice.

She had been standing there for something close to 20 minutes, staring at the maze and the snow surrounding it. At that moment she shattered her statue-like image by slowly shaking her head.

"Aww censored! no..." she whispered in complete surprise. "This wasn't here-" She immediately stopped her little rant of disbelief when a snowball hit her face.

Blinking comically as it took her another few seconds to figure what the heck just happened, Salem wiped off the snow of her face and stomped to the maze. Like censored! she was going to allow someone to get away with that! As she stepped in however, she happened to get a glance of tiny creatures scurrying around to finish something, and almost immediately, her curiosity won over her anger. Squating down to one of them, who seemed to be on a break of some sort, she gave a small wave and a friendly smile.

"Hi there," she had barely begun when another snowball her face, bowling her over into a snowbank.

Getting up with a sigh, she ran her hands through her hair and looked at the snickering imp with a inquiring glance. The imp pointed to a pathway where Salem would have sworn she saw a snowman run around the corner and then collapsed in helpless laughter. Regardless of the embarassment she felt, Salem ran after her poor target, her thoughts on how she was going to make them pay allowed her to forge on. Well, that was until she burst into the central area with a frozen throne in the middle. As she once again had an object to focus all her attention, she heard a strange sort of snickering from another pathway, deciding to stay hidden she peeked around the corner and saw a group of snowmen laughing at another one - wait, what? Rub eyes to make sure you are not seeing things again.

Sighing as she shook her head, she followed her trail out, past the still laughing imp and on to the Underground's street, and she stretched out with a smile, she quickly ducked under a snowball. Salem turned and flipped the bird at the snowball-flinging snowman with a wink and stuck out her tongue at it. With that done, she went back to her previous mission, meeting up with L at the Cosy Cafe.

Piper almost didn't see the new structure that had appeared overnight around the quadrangle. She was too busy watching where she was going and floating around in her head, only seeing the ice maze when something wet and cold hit her square between the shoulder blades and she spun to see who'd attacked her. Shivering with the sudden onslaught of cold, Piper wiggled her shoulders and squirmed a little, wishing she'd worn her winter coat after all, but with the snow gone she hadn't expected to be attacked by a pelting snowball.

Gaping at the maze, convinced it hadn't been there yesterday, she darted out of the way of another snowball and frowned. What the heck? She'd have seen this if it had been there yesterday. Really. Wouldn't she? Even she wasn't that oblivious.

Curious, she hesitantly approached the signpost, wondering what was going on. Eyes lighting up at the thought of Elysia's own version of a Santa's Grotto, she giggled to herself and hurried inside. She had to be grateful that the maze wasn't more confusing. She didn't want to get lost in here, it was too cold.

Delighted by the gift presented to her by Xanth - a goddess! Piper was talking to a goddess in person! - she skipped back out, sneezing as she inhaled a noseful of glitter, and headed to her shop cradling the prettily wrapped parcel in her arms.

Inimicus walks back into the EU through the portal, he liked his new home and all but it was a bit removed. It was for the protection of everyone else, but still one did feel a little lonely when they only people you had around were fledgling Anyeli practicing flying under the watchful eyes of Anyeli elders. Today Himme had joined him on his trek, he liked to come to the EU often, since Xanth had apparently set up shop for christmas he wanted to come every day, it wasn't so long a ride on Nacht, a half or quarter of the day maybe, but he never let Nacht back in through this portal the Clydesdale was so large it put people off. Nacht knew the way back to the stable and the corral and had no desire to stick in the forest with the dangerous creatures. Inimicus smiled and walked towards the Ice Maze, ducking as soon as he entered to avoid the snowball and getting hit by three in the stomach, he looked up and grinned at the snowman running into the center to avoid the next hail diving like he was in a war zone the result of which was him skidding a bit on the ice and getting covered in snow. Himme thought it was a delightful game and followed suit diving after her master and frolicking through the snow. Inimicus stood up smiling and patted himself down, he walked over to the throne and knelt infront of his goddess, Himme in curiosity walked over to sit beside her master. She stared up at the throne and its occupant her small eyes widened in curiostiy at the person sitting up there, she gave a small yip of happiness and wagged her tail sending small sprays of snow in its path.

" Good morning my goddess, this maze you have set up is truly a delight, thank you yet again and always for your favor on us Elysians. May no trouble come your way Xanth my goddess "

Inimicus smiled and stood up walking towards the other entrance to the maze intent on prowling the halls for fun, Himme stayed staring at the Goddess in curiosity

" Himme, come here girl! "

The light shout came from inside the maze, Himme yipped and dashed off following her Masters tracks finding him and staring in curiosity at the package in his hands..that hadnt been there before he kneeled

The change had caused such a buzz among the locals that even Remy, who usually didn’t care about such matters, was curious to see what happened. Indeed, the quadrangle was so unrecognizable that Remy would have backtracked had she not noticed the large sign (complete with bright white lights) that proclaimed it to be Xanth’s Grotto. Much of the area was covered with what looked like ice.

Trudging her boots through the snow, Remy nodded in greeting to the group of friendly snowman, then ducked instinctively as a snowball flew over her head and splat on the ground ahead of her. With half a mind to give that snowman the finger---she hated feeling cold---she dashed ahead to a safer distance. The rude gesture remained inexistent. She doubted the snowmen would know what it meant. Remy ignored the sometimes cheeky, sometimes polite imps as she wound through the maze and approached the wintery statue of Xanth.

For a moment, all she did was stare at the face of the towering stone figure. By the standards of mortals, Xanth was exceptionally beautiful. The goddess stared forward, perhaps as if she could see into the future. Perhaps. Remy had not an inkling of what the goddess was like. This was probably the closest to Xanth she’d ever get, and perhaps it was better this way. In her mind, deities were beings you admired from afar. You’ve probably done something wrong if a deity one day appeared in front of you.

She’d never seen or heard of Xanth as a physical being, but she still believed in her, just as she believed in any other god. Before she began her trek back to the vampire sanctuary, Remy tilted her head down in polite deference, silently thanking the goddess for whatever goodness had occurred in her life.

Once a day, hmm? Piper felt more than a little cheeky paying a visit to a goddess just to get a present but she was more curious to know what would be inside the little package than she was greedy. She'd opened yesterday's as soon as she got to her shop and was delighted to find a pretty potion bottle with a tag attached explaining what would happen if she smashed it. She'd wanted to smash it there and then, but she thought it would be nice to do it while Wolf was around to enthuse about it with her. Something as pretty as that deserved to be witnessed by more than just one person. So she'd tucked it safely back in its gift box to save for Christmas Day.

She wondered if she'd get something similar today, and had come prepared, wearing her winter coat as a defense against the snowballs. So they smacked her legs instead and her skin turned pink beneath her stockings. Wonderful.

Tempted to get into a snowball fight to retaliate, Piper held her head high as she walked to the entrance, then dashed the last few feet and ducked inside when she spotted a snowball-wielding snowman out of the corner of her eye. Hah!

Thanking Xanth profusely as she handed over a second gift, Piper beamed and headed off back out of the maze, holding the present up to her ear as if she could figure out what was inside by sound alone.

Inimicus popped out of the portal nearly skipping, he loved this season and what Xanth had done to the underground made it all the more joyous. Horrible things had happened to him since halloween, but so far nothing so bad in December had happened. The glittering ice reflected the dim light of the underground as he stepped through the portal, he had things to do at his house and it was night before he made it to the dusky mountain portal, but still he thought he should come pay his respects. Himme was lying at home in her bed curled up, the poor thing had been worn out chasing nacht around all day as Inimicus tried to get work done on the stubborn horse. Inimicus walked towards the maze humming the tune of silent night looking at the stars. As he neared the entrance he packed a couple snowballs and stepped through, ducking and then jumping to avoid the attacks of the snowmen he returned his own snowballs grinning before walking over to the throne and kneeling.

" good evening my goddess, on such a lovely night the good you have done continues to shine all the brighter, happy holidays "

Stepping up he walked back towards the main underground, perhaps he would stop by the Cosy Cafe for some cheesecake, he tucked the package under his cape and walked away smiling.

The end of just another day was near and Castalia was walking through the marketplace on her way home. While walking she overheard some people excitedly discussing the quadrangle where Xanth's Statue was located. Apparently it had undergone some mysterious change overnight. Curiosity awoken, Castalia took the next turn left and made her way there.

As she arrived at the quadrangle her jaw dropped slightly. The area looked completely different. A structure of ice had risen there surrounded by a wooden fence. Touching the ice briefly she felt a shiver and then a rejuvenating sensation. It was definately real ice, she could feel the power of the frozen water within. it was simply amazing that the goddess had created this. Pretty decorated trees added to the decorum and the spirit of the season.

Castalia decided to take a closer look and read the sign over the entrance which said XANTH's GROTTO. While standing there she was suddenly hit with a snowball, couching the snow from her mouth she looked around to see snowmen moving on top of the structure. One of them was throwing snowballs which explained what happened to her. Ducking quickly to avoid another one, she entered the tunnel. In the middle of the tunnel she found a snow white throne for Xanth. So Castalia bowed her head and knelt humbly. "I just wanted to say that you have created something beautiful for us. Thank you for this great gift."

Then she got up again and made way way through the tunnels to the exit. Looking up to see one of the moving snowmen throw down glitters she smiled and continued her way home.

Inimicus dashed through the portal heading towards the quadrangle, he wasnt as late as last night still...he prefered to do this earlier in the day and not make his goddess wait. That and he had things to do back on his land, something kept knocking down part of the fence and it was really bugging Inimicus, that and...he didnt know but Himme seemed odd of late, he was worried she was sick and didnt want to be seperated from her. Still she was sleeping and he needed to make his daily visit to Xanth. He dashed through the maze, as he reached the exist he tripped on some Ice flying into the air and falling hard on his bum, all of a sudden he opened his eyes to see glitter falling on his face and snowballs flying at his head. He flipped up onto his feet and walked over to Xanth blushing, not from the snow, he kneeled before her

" Good evening my beloved goddess, I hope your season has been going well and continues to go well. All glory to you as it is deserving to be. "

He stood up, and bowed to her. Quickly flashing a smile he dashed off back to the portal jumping over the snowballs from the snowmen

Scarlett had been roaming around the Elysian marketplace, feeling almost cheerful as the holiday season approached. She couldn't wait to spend hours curled up with Zan, watching cheesy tv, and drinking all the eggnog her stomach could handle. Smiling at the thought of such laziness, Scarlett wondered whether she should decorate the Sanctuary, "Will the fledgings even notice, in their new bloodlust state?" she wondered, rubbing her arms absent mindedly as she entered the quadrangle.

Upon entering, Scarlett's jaw dropped slightly, her lips widening in amazement at the magnificant ice structure that stood before her. Cautiously she made her way towards it, her eyes mesmerised by the glitter of ice in the wintery sun. Entering, Scarlett ducked as a snowball headed towards her. Thankfully, she'd not taken the full brunt of it, but bits of snow still remained on the curly tips of her hair. Wiping some of the snow, Scarlett began wandering the maze, until eventually reaching the middle. Once again, her lips widened, as she took in the exquisite statue of Xanth.

Feeling slightly uncomfortable, but somehow knowing that she should pay her respects, Scarlett sent up a silent thought to the Goddess.

"Xanth, please make sure my brother is able to enjoy the holiday season as well I am."

Piper didn't see any snowmen this time and was oddly disappointed since she'd worn a thick scarf, hat and gloves as well as yesterday's gift and a pair of extra thick stockings. The fluffy, white, glittering snowballs bounced above her head and made her look a bit like a kid but she didn't mind. The headband was cute and christmassy and put her in the holiday spirit which was good because she planned to decorate her shop today and it was no fun if she wasn't in the mood.

Making her way around the maze, Piper stopped at the throne and tried to curtsey awkwardly, grinning at the goddess irreverently. She should probably be respectful but this whole thing was just so much fun she couldn't keep the smile off her face. "Thank you," she murmured, accepting the gift with a happy bounce before turning to leave.

Hmm, maybe she should give this one to Wolf. He hadn't made it to the grotto yet, it would be a shame for him to miss out. Oh, she should go christmas shopping! But after she decorated.

Naava sauntered throughout the underground, once again oblivious of the giant ice monstrocity that had taken over the quadrangle. This had to have been at least the fifth time she'd passed the place, but still she didn't even care enough to do so much as glance at the beautiful creation. She didn't, that is, until some obnoxious person threw one whopper of a snowball at her that slammed into her typically bare midriff.

Turning sharply to the side, Naava's face twisted into what could only be described as pure evil as she glowered at some random kid who, at the site of Naava's face, cowered into the snow. "I didn't do it! The snowman did!" The boy shouted as tried to hide the fact he was losing control of his shapeshifting form. "And why should I believe you, little brat?" Naava shouted as she began to walk towards him, only to get slammed in the head by another snowball. This time she whipped her face around quickly enough that she barely caught a glimpse of a woolen scarf flying into the maze; but that was all Naava needed to go off, chasing the sorry beast.

After a time of being lost inside the walls of ice, Naava began cursing and kicking the walls every time she hit a dead end. Oh how much she HATED, mazes, especially since that initiation censored the anyeli race had put her through. Almost censored dying, RIGHT after coming back from the dead. It was censored annoying!

Snorting out a blast of hot air, Naava turned a corner and smirked as she saw the throne of Xanth. Bowing mockingly, unnafraid of the punishment she'd likely face, Naava belted out her words loudly and defiantly as her golden locks brushed thoe snow covered ground. "Greetings, your royal purpleness" She said before returning upright and snatching up the elegantly wrapped gift that was on the ground. Either someone left it here for Xanth, or they forgot it accidently, either way, it was Naava's now, and she was barely out of the throne chamber before she was shredding the wrapping paper and throwing it carelessly onto the ground as she walked away.

Inimicus walked through the portal bouncing slightly, he loved this season and the Grotto had done a lot to restore his feelings so down since Halloween. He toyed with the idea of going to visit Ammanity as he walked towards the Grotto, he walked through the icey maze debating the subject in his head, walking out he got pelted in the face with 3 glittery snowballs sending him back on his butt, he had to keep remembering those snowmen, they were amusing but his bum was getting cold from this all the time he forgot about them. He walked over to the throne and kneeled

" Thank you my goddess for the beauty bestowed upon us, all glory to you as you deserve "

Inimicus stood up and smiled, decidedly he turned back the way he came, no, he moved to the Dusky Mountains to stay away from people, perhaps he would send Ammanity some more flowers, but he didnt trust himself enough to go visit her personally. He whistled an old Opera song under his breath as the package from Xanth bounced under his arm. He had placed all these things in the cabinets at home, or the display case the chocolates he had felt too..freaked out to eat, eating an effigy of his goddess was something that would seem a bit...odd to him, so he had placed it aside maybe one day when he felt less odd. He didn't have a tree yet, no real reason to have one he wasnt going to have any guests over or presents, the bulb was twinkling in his display case, Himme seemed to be enjoying the new fox tag and had seemingly regained a bit of life which made Inimicus quite happy. He debated going to the Cafe, or the bar maybe since he and Bella had made up. As he neared the portal though he stopped, and sighing walked towards it, he still had to fix that fence again, when he found out what was doing it he was going to skin it...probably a fledgling Anyeli crashing and running away, he had no issue but if it was one he wished they would at least tell him.

Inimicus stepped through the portal grinning, this time he was prepared. Himme was out playing with Nacht in the field, he loved that fox, but he trusted Nacht enough not to step on her afterall they had been together in Suka's pet shop long before he got them. He walked towards the ice maze and every time he saw it he couldnt help but be amazed. He had seen the Ice Hotel in Canada once on a trip there with his parents, the reason for going there had long since been forgotten but he never forgot his amazement at the enormous structure that seemed to be made out of cold crystal complete with bedrooms, a bar, and a chapel. This maze amazed him, and how it seemingly sprouted from nothing in a night, Xanth truly was a playful goddess, he loved that. He inched through the maze carefully, as he neared the entrance to the quadrangle he dashed forward and raised his shield, three loud impacts banged against the silver surface and delicate celtic knotwork. He grinned behind the shield as the noise stopped and lowered it

" Hah! Didn't think I would keep fal...."

As he spoke the snowman threw another snowball which promptly exploded all over Inimicus's face turning it almost completley white. Grinning he wiped a bit of the snow away from his eyes, he had no body heat to speak of so the rest really wasnt going anywhere, ah he didnt care he liked the cold.

" Touche Frosty "

He grinned and walked towards Xanth's throne wiping off the remaining snow as he went. Reaching the throne he kneeled to his goddess looking up at her

" Good Day my goddess, thank you for this gift always and forever "

Lifting the package at his feet he grinned at Xanth and turned around whistling Silent Night, the only carol he knew in english well. Humming and skipping a bit he walked back towards the main part of the Underground the package bouncing under his arm.

Piper was exhausted after a hard day bent over the computer working on new prints but she was feeling oddly energised. She always did when she accomplished what she'd intended, which didn't always happen. That sense of accomplishment made her practically bounce down the sidewalk on her way home and into the ice maze. She didn't even blink when she was jolted forward by a snowball between her shoulderblades, just giggled and waved backwards at whoever had thrown it.

She paused this time just ahead of the throne to touch a gloved hand to the wall, marvelling at the thought that this whole place had just come out of nowhere. She wondered if Xanth had built it ahead of time and then just transplanted it... or if she'd moulded it in a flash of creation and the wink of an eye. Or maybe it had already existed. There were places this structure could survive for thousands of years, like Alaska on Earth or the top of the Duskies. Or maybe even that Ceracen island that Wolf had been taking her to before their trip was aborted. The thought just made her want to go there even more.

Bobbing a clumsy curtsey as she made her way before the throne, Piper thanked the goddess with a bright smile for her gift and left, the bounce still her in her step.

Inimicus stumbles out through the portal rubbing the back of his shoulder. Honestly he didnt get what was with Nacht today, something must have been bugging him during the night, probably the same thing that kept nocking that once fence section down, but still he didnt have to do that. He had rode Nacht to the portal as always, he always got off and Nacht wandered back to the house, the horse was fast and knew the way, no one bothered him, he would whistle and Nacht would come back at the end of the day. Today he had gotten off and promptly gotten donkey kicked through the portal by the angry Nacht who promptly rode back towards the house...he assumed. That kick really hurt his shoulder. Rotating his shoulder to try and ease the pain he walked to the ice maze, as he reached the entrance he dove with one leg forward slidding out of the entrance as the snowballs sailed over his head, he did a rather awkward backflip and stood up his shoulder yelling at him angrily, he shouldnt be doing these stunts. He walked to the throne and knelt before it letting his hand off his shoulder to suplicate properly.

" Beloved goddess, thank you for your gift...all glory to you as it is right to be. "

Inimicus stood and bowed again managing a smile to Xanth, turning he started rubbing his shoulder again. Maybe he would go to the Cosy Cafe for something warm and something fattening...all things aside Inimicus seemed to have an annoyingly fast metabolism which did not do wonders for his desire for muscle structure. He ducked slightly under the snowballs and walked through the maze heading towards the cafe. If it killed him he was going to gain some body fat, his bones were far too exposed he was fast but still he needed some muscle and the Cafe had some very decadant stuff he needed to try. The Package bounced loosely under his left arm, his right being used to massage his left shoulder.

It is times like this I wish i enjoyed the taste of coffee...or drank it..

Inimicus walked through the portal his hair tussled around heavy shadows under his eyes. He was going to kill, skin, and manufacture a blanket out of whatever dang creature kept breaking that fence, this time whatever it was wandered into this yard and woke Himme up which of course woke Inimicus up when the fox jumped on his head and started growling out the window from her safe perch. Inimicus had slowly gotten up drawing his sword from under its hiding spot under the large pillows. He had slowly walked outside but by the time he got outside the thing had left newly fallen snow mostly erasing its prints. He had spent the night fixing the fence again and calming down both an angry and annoyed Nacht and a scared Himme, he may be a vampire but that did not mean that he HAD to love being awake so late. After he finished fixing the fence he decided that he might as well go visit Xanth for the day, grab a mug of blood or something from the Cafe, and go back home to sleep.

He wandered over to the ice maze rubbing his eyes and completley misjudging the entrance, promptly running into the solid wall of ice with a note of sharp pain running through his face, that had hurt a lot. He wandered around the maze his mind a bit scattered to quickly find the entrance to the quadrangle, after he found it he felt the lovely impact of snowballs in his face promptly followed by glitter covering his hair. Grinning a bit as the snow helped to wake him up he wandered over to his goddess's throne and kneeled.

" Lovely Xanth, thank you for this gift you have given, may your day and all your years be beautiful "

Standing he smiled at Xanth and softly took the package she handed him, bowing he walked back over to the maze narrowly avoiding running into another wall. Time to go get something to wake him up and some break...well no...lunch now.

Piper was preoccupied, trying to think what to buy Wolf for Christmas, when she entered the maze. It seemed like the snowmen weren't interested in her today, though, as she wasn't hit by any snowballs at all. Although she did hear some snickering from above, she just assumed they were sharing a joke or something. What did snowmen do when they weren't throwing snowballs anyway? Heck, maybe it was their lunch break...

She cursteyed at the throne and thanked Xanth for the prettily-wrapped gift. She was getting good at this curtseying thing. She wouldn't make a great princess, still, but at least she could curtsey and have it look like she was curtseying instead of flailing around like a beached whale.

Holding the gift to her ear and shaking it gently as she exited the maze, Piper pursed her lips thoughtfully, wondering what could be inside it. She couldn't make anything out and shook her head, giggling at her own silliness. Then mumphed as a snowball hit her square in the mouth, muffling her shrieks as she was pelted by a rapid sequence of shots.

The snowballs chased her across the quadrangle and she ducked behind a bench, scooping the snow out of her mouth and licking her fangs to try and warm them up. They ached with the cold. Shaking her fist over the back of the bench, Piper called out, "Okay, you've had your fun! See you tomorrow!" She stalked off with their laughter in her ears.




Merry Christmas

Xanth wishes you Merry Christmas and hands you a decorative silver box containing five minor healing potions.

Inimicus walked through the portal happilly humming a german christmas song, Himme bounced in the snow beside him with her new collar bouncing along her thick neck as she went. He smiled down at his fox, lord she loved the snow, this truly was a great gift for her as well...if it werent for the snow she couldnt come here as much her fur was far too thick to go places without insulating coldness. Inimicus walked over to the ice maze and smiled as Himme tilted her head in confusion, wondering at the distrorted mirror image of her in the ice.

" Come on Himme darling, its just ice you should know that, come on girl we are visiting Xanth "

Himme yipped and went back to following Inimicus diving into the snow at certain points. As they near the entrance a snowball come flying out of nowhere nailing Inimicus in the head nocking him down from suprise. He coughed spitting out snow from his mouth and wiping it from his face, standing he patted down his front which was covered in snow, the snowmen were getting sneakier dang it. Inimicus walked over to the throne and kneeled accidentally sending a spray of snow at Xanth as his hair flicked what was on it off with the motion. Himme sat behind him with the same cocked head she always seemed to have when visiting Xanth.

" Good morning my beloved goddess, I pray you have a happy season as you have given to all of us, all glory to you as it is deserving to be "

Inimicus gathered the gift at his feet and smiled at Xanth, bowing one last time he turned to the ice maze to walk out. Himme turned with him but spied the snowmen, big mounds of snow fun! She ran towards them stopping a few feet away and tensed her little body to pounce on the snowmen

" Himme, no girl not for play! "

The fox lowered her head annoyed at her master and slunked off following him out of the maze.
