Aamira paused a moment to read the festive, red and green sign before moving carefully over the snow and into the glistening maze. Focusing all of her attention on keeping her balance and appearing graceful, she didn't even notice the snowman currently taking aim at her head.

The piercing cold beginning to register in her mind, Aamira suddenly realized she was sprawled face-first in the powdery, ankle deep snow. Wincing, she gingerly felt the back of her head where the snowball had unexpectedly hit.
"So much for appearing graceful", she muttered, clambering somewhat unsteadily to her feet and wiping snow off of her chin. The next snowball almost catapulted her onto her back, but she managed to stay upright and began to inch her way towards the shrine.

Reaching the grotto, Aamira let out a delighted gasp and gazed at the Christmas trees twinkling around her. How lovely... she sighed in contentment, then dashed for the entryway. Pausing, Aamira reveled in the peace that came over her before brushing the remainder of the white flakes from her clothing and hair. She made her way to the majestic shrine, sinking to her knees and lowering her head in prayer. Raising her eyes, she noticed a gift-wrapped package she had not seen before. Taking the gift in her hands, she uttered a final prayer then walked back outside, steeling herself for the onslaught of snowballs.

Merry Christmas

Xanth wishes you Merry Christmas and hands you a $20 bill.

Katah walked through the market place, she needed to get some things from the local shops, When she passed the quadrangle she took a double take. It apparently wasn't the quadrangle any longer, but a large icy maze. Looking up at the sign over head she read the name aloud. "Xanth's Grotto" Shrugging her shoulder she decided to stop by on her way back home. As she turned to leave she felt a cold smack hit her head. Whipping her head around she saw the snowman sitting innocently. "It couldn't have been them their just snowmen after all." Turning to leave once more another shock of icy cold hits her in the neck. Turning once more she grits her teeth in anger. "Alright you little monsters, which one of you did it!" Marching up to the entrance she gives up on trying to leave. Walking through the maze she admires the beautiful trees that surround the grotto. Though no one would expect it Katah's favorite holiday happened to be Christmas.

As she found her way out of the maze Katah came before the snow white throne of Xanth. Looking up to the throne Katah wondered what she was supposed to do now. She had never before worshiped Xanth, but then again she wasn't brought up to worship her. In fact Katah had not known about Xanth until she came to Elysia, and even then the information she knew was limited. At a loss for words Katah bowed hr head slightly and sent a silent thank you to the goddess. Turning to leave Katah avoided the snowmen but out of the corner of her eye she caught the one she was looking for throwing a snowball at another passerby. "I'll get you tomorrow you little imp."

Sorry for posting on the wrong account :-/ I swear I will stop doing that...eventually though somehow I dont think anyone could confuse Inimicus's words to Xanth with Falaris's XD





Inimicus wandered through the portal with a mug of blood cupped in his hands, he had woken up late, gotten to fixing the fence late, and was in general running late the entire day. Since night and day really had no meaning to him, he could function well in either (better at night) the sun rising didn't generally impact him too much, and his internal clock was apparently off. That and having a fox who decided to sleep on his head mid way through the night because the foot of the bed was cold, well it wasn't a pleasent morning all around. He woke up with a start which woke up Himme who promptly sunk her claws into her bed to avoid flying anywhere, her bed just happened to be her Master which she promptly realized. Inimicus sighed and sipped the cup of blood, he honestly prefered it cold, he could ignore where it came from better that way drinking it warm always made him think of a body he was feeding from. Placing a gloved hand up to his face he felt the cauterized scratch marks with a wince, hopefully those wouldn't turn into scars.

Slowly breathing in the cold air of the underground with a note of happiness he walked over to the maze, stopping at the entrance he smiled at his warped reflection in the ice. Grabbing his free left hand glove with his teeth he pulled off the leather covering and placed his hand against the wall...delightfully cold, he did so love ice, snow, and the cold. Smiling he put his glove back on, spitting out bits of fabric still stuck to his pointed large fangs he took another sip of the cool blood. Wandering through the maze he came to the entrance, his eyes widened as he realized something and he promptly hunkered his body down, clutching his mug to his chest as sure enough impacts were felt against his shoulders...dang snowmen. Shaking the glitter that preceeded the snowballs out of his hair creating an odd effect in the wind behind him he wandered over to the throne. Setting the mug behind and to the side of him he kneeled to Xanth

" Beloved Xanth, this beauty you bring us is a gift everyday...may your name resound on the tounges of all creatures forever and a day "

Slowly reaching forward Inimicus picked up the package with his hands, tucking it under his left arm he picked up the mug of blood in his left. Bowing one more time he headed out of the ice maze sipping the blood as he went.

Aamira wanted to go to the pet store. All she wanted to do was look at the different kinds of animals and maybe get some ideas for a pet. On her way to the store, however, the giant ice maze surrounding Xanth's Grotto caught her attention, and she decided a detour was in order.

Remembering the snowballs from her visit yesterday, Aamira approached cautiously, peering at the snowmen intently. They seemed harmless enough. It was hard to imagine that one of them had pelted her with snow quite wickedly. Keeping her eyes on the moving, grinning men of snow, Aamira moved into the maze. Walking gingerly, she watched in disbelief as one of the men, still smiling merrily, packed a hard ball of snow and hurled it her way. She managed to duck out of the way, but in the process slid over the ground and ended up crashing into the wall of the maze. Subsequent snowballs rained around her as she dazedly tried to stand back up: "Not again," she sighed. "A skirt was definitely not the most intelligent thing to wear today."

Finally succeeding in returning to her feet, Aamira reached the center of the grotto and dried herself off as best she could before walking over to the throne. Kneeling, she bowed her head and prayed silently. Looking up, she saw a beautiful, gift-wrapped package. Picking it up, she quietly thanked Xanth, then prepared herself for the walk back out of the maze.

Merry Christmas

Xanth wishes you Merry Christmas and hands you a delicate silver bracelet.

Inimicus wandered out through the portal smiling, it had been a good day. For the first time in a while the fence stayed up the entire night and he got a restful night's sleep which was always a good start to his day. Whistling a christmas tune he wandered towards the Ice maze his cape swirling in the cool breeze behind him. He was going to visit Xanth, than maybe go shopping for some Christmas items...he did find it annoying it had been his first year without Nicholas day, it was odd not to celebrate that. These...stockings...apparently this was how other countries had celebrated it on Earth and it appeared to fit for Elysia, maybe he would buy one of these to replace the lost saints day...but first more important things. He wandered through the ice maze, reaching the entrance he turned backwards, diving backwards his back arched over a snowball as he did a backflip...clumsily maybe, but still enough, another snowball sailed over his head. Standing straight he smiled and brushed the loose hair out of his face before turning to the statue. Reaching the icey throne he kneeled before his goddess

" Glorious Xanth, may your heart be warmed this winter by the adoration of your children...all glory to you as it is right and deserving to be "

Smiling Inimicus stood up, as he walked towards the maze entrance six snowballs hit him square in the face before he had time to react

" Vindictive bloody snowman, give me two seconds with a hair dryer I swear..."

Grinning Inimicus wandered past the snowman, glitter drifting into his hair, heading to do some shopping.

Aamira was prepared this time - no more wandering around in a flimsy skirt, practically begging to be pelted by the snowmen. No, today she was ready: in lieu of her normal "swirly" skirt, she was wearing a heavy, thick skirt with a matching jacket - both in her favorite color: pink. The different clothes, however, weren't the only changes Aamira made. She was going to get those snowmen back.

Before entering the maze, Aamira knelt down and began to pack her own snowballs. She paused for a moment to smile at her new, beautiful silver bracelet before picking up the snowballs and moving forward. Taking aim, Aamira managed to almost hit one of the snowmen. Her laugh of delight was of course cut short by the barrage of snowballs that then came flying her way, but as she shuffled blindly towards the grotto she chalked it up to experience. Falling inside the entrance, Aamira sank down against the wall to catch her breath. Well I certainly won't try that again, she sighed.

Walking over to the throne, Aamira knelt once more and thanked Xanth for the beautiful and generous gifts she had been given. Raising herself from the floor, Aamira picked up the lovely package that rested next to the throne, tucking it inside of her coat. She headed wearily towards the door, grinning good-naturedly as the snowballs began to fly.

The first thing one would see coming through the portal that crisp morning was a very annoyed looking large male clydesdale wearing what appeared to be reindeer ears on its head. Looking thoroughly annoyed he trotted through carrying his happilly smiling master on his back. Inimicus had gotten up early to find the fence one again broken, well he had gotten one nights reprived. Spending some time in the early morning hours before the sun rose to fix that he woke up Nacht and took him for an early morning ride...probably the only reason the horse hadn't thrown Inimicus from his back was that he was pleased with the run. Deciding to move the run and go to visit Xanth he was brought to where he now was. Nacht whinnied a bit, Inimicus reached forward and patted down his head

" Shhhh, shhhh its okay big guy its okay "

Inimicus stifled a small laugh at the horse, he lookd ridiculuos with the undersized reindeer ears on. Inimicus was in a very good holiday mood and he couldnt help it...he saw an American movie once, well a cartoon, "The Grinch" and he couldnt help but act out a little bit of it on his own horse. Smiling broadly he turned Nacht into the Ice Maze, as he reached the entrance he saw Nacht turn his head to the side and snort in warning. Inimicus smiled as snowballs whistled under the horse. Directing Nacht to the side Inimicus dismounted and held out an opened palm with a large pile of oats in it. Happilly the horse started chewing on them

" stay Nacht "

Inimicus pointed to the horse and patted his hands to clear away the saliva and oats, walking over to the throne he kneeled his new silver dragon belt-buckle gleaming in the changing light as he kneeled

" Beloved Xanth, thank you for all your glorious gifts that you have and continue to give that brighten all the hearts of your people. Thank you especially for bringing some holiday cheer into my life for in the gloomiest month Christmas is always a source of light and your Christmas is even brighter "

Standing Inimicus smiled at Xanth as he tucked the package under his arm saying one more thing to Xanth smiling broadly

" and As you can see Nacht particularly enjoys the gift "

Inimicus smiled and pointed at the reindeer eared horse before bowing once more and turning. Reaching Nacht he slowly mounted the horse and turned him to leave the Ice maze to go home.

It was hard for Ala to imagine winter as a time of life and spirit. She was still without a full grasp on the circle that was life and balance. She pictured fall and winter as an antagonist to life and thus did not enjoy them as much as she would have otherwise.

A shiver rattled her bony figure as she pulled her coat close to her body. The wool garment did well to keep her body heat in, but it was only so effective in such cold temperatures. Wearily she eyed the towering maze of ice, atop which sat an assortment of holiday things. The snowmen caught her eye first. She had been aware of them ahead of time due to conversations she overheard on her trip to the the Quadrangle.

Ala observed with a frown as a snowball was packed and then hurled at an unexpecting shopper. He didn’t find the prank as funny as the snowman did, and neither did Ala. She slunk her way toward the maze entrance determined to make it within the haven of its walls before she fell prey to the snowmen.

Success was sweet. A smile cracked her reddened lips as she worked her way through the maze, packed full of other people trying to accomplish the same thing she was. Ala moved without much thinking, just following the masses. In a sense this made her think of her seclusion. Both tests of her ability to problem solve. Her seclusion, though took place in a time of life and this was ice and animated snow men.

You need to think of all elements as life. Ice is frozen water, and water is an element. Thus it is life. How are you supposed to be an example of tranquility and balance if you cannot even understand the simple concept of the four elements?

Her feet had stopped moving. She now waited in a line. Leaning to the side a bit she was able to glimpse the ice throne of Xantharra. Atop the cold mass sat Xanth herself. Around her sat presents of all kinds and she was pulling them at random and giving them to the person in front of her. She pulled herself back up straight and sighed heavily. Patience is something else you need to learn.

It took some before she reached the ice throne and she was shivering horribly when she did. She knelt stiffly in front of the lady. There was a pause, she was unsure of what she should say. Oh, thank you for the gift you’re about to give me. No. That sounds ridiculous.

"Bless me, lady with you seasonal gift."

She could just pinch herself…It wouldn’t do any good. She couldn’t feel any appendages worth pinching.


Merry Christmas

Xanth wishes you Merry Christmas and hands you a soft and fluffy lilac teddy bear. A label attached to the bear's bottom suggests he's actually a wheatie bag. Warmth and snuggly comfort, how lovely!.

Inimicus walks through the portal smiling. whatever it was destroying his fence was getting careless...he saw a gouge in the snow leading from the fence into the forest but it dissapeared in the forest. Inimicus had woken up that morning rather early, for some reason he had been getting up earlier and earlier...his sleep cycle was completley out of whack and he could not think of why. It was getting warmer around his home, spring, it seemed, was definatly there though the snow lingered on the ground. When he had left Nacht and Himme both were still sleeping, Himme had decided to sleep on the floor that night which made it easy for him to get away. Sipping from a mug of cool blood Inimicus wandered into the ice maze, glitter rained down on his head as he smiled, christmas was always so wonderful. As he reached the entrance to the quadrangle he moved the mug to his left hand, putting it to his mouth to sip he swirled his cape up at the same time with his right hand and felt the impact of snowballs on the black silk cloak. Not even breaking a stride he grinned, those snow men would have to get up really early to trick...*SMACK*!

As Inimicus walked past them the snowballs loaded again and pelted him, three snowballs ran into the back of his head sending Inimicus sprawling into the snow his mug of blood spilling everywhere though not breaking. Growling Inimicus stood and pushed back his hair, looking down at the blood stained snow he swore at the snowmen

" darn it that was the last thing of blood I had...now I am going to have to go kill some more animals...stupid snowmen "

shaking it off he smiled a bit...it would give him an occasion to take Nacht on a nice long stalking mission. As much as he tried to deny it he enjoyed the thrill of the hunt as much as ancient nobles who hunted....hmmm okay bad example. Walking up to the throne he kneeled and spoke hapilly

" Beautiful wise Xanth, thank you for the beauty you bestow on all of us each day, may your holidays be as happy as those you bring to us. "

Smiling Inimicus stood and walked out of the maze.

The first thing someone would see appearing through the portal was a silver dagger with a black handle flipping in an arc in midair. A split second behind the knife however makes its purpose clear, Inimcus wanders through the portal wearing his normal clothes his cape swirling in the breeze, but his eyes are locked ahead of him watching for anybody coming. He is flicking the dagger with his right hand catching the blade on its arc downward with his forefingers. It is an excerisize that should require him to watch but Inimicus had found his reflexes were improving of late and he had done this before, so his focus was in making sure no one walked in front of him and this was in danger. Wandering towards the maze he stops, catching the dagger by its blade he peers down at the blade. He really loved this dagger, perfectly balanced, grip fit his hand perfectly, smooth grip, brilliant sharp keen blade, and he loved the black dragon emblazoned in Onyx on the blade, made of the same material as the handle it was a lovely dagger. Wandering into the maze smiling he continued to flip the dagger in the air, he ignored the snowballs which hit his side, apparently he was focusing more than he seemed.

Inimicus flipped it one last time and flipped it in his hands to be holding the handle. He inserted it into a small black sheath on his upper left arm with a click it locked into place. Inimicus walked over to the throne and smiled at Xanth, kneeling he spoke happilly

" Beautiful Xanth thank you for all the gifts you have and continue to give me. All glory to you as it is deserving to be "

Inimicus stood tucking the package under his arm, he smiled at Xanth and bowed, as he bowed he thought of something and looked into the eyes of the goddess and spoke

" and Please make sure Ammanity has a good holiday, I know i put her in odd straights at and after Halloween....please bless her holiday my goddess "

Inimicus bowed again and walked out of the maze, as he passed the snowmen he unsheathed the dagger and continued flipping it in the air.

Head bowed, long black curls obscuring her face, Aamira walked through the maze. Snowballs crashed against her frame but she payed them no heed ... other than slipping once in awhile. Aamira would normally face the snowmen with spirit - a good-natured grin at the very least. Today was different, however, and Aamira felt no desire to share a chuckle with a couple of over-grown snowballs. At that moment, she couldn't even remember what laughter felt like.

Aamira was usually fairly happy - a "go with the flow, roll with the punches" type of girl. Every now and then, however, when she caught sight of a happy family, she would feel the sadness begin to well up within her. Thinking about the family she'd lost, Aamira didn't know what to do with herself. Remembering her mother's smile and her father's laugh - that's when the tears would start to flow.

Today was "one of those days". One of the days when she couldn't bring herself to smile ... when the sorrow choked her and nothing was clear. Reaching Xanth's throne, Aamira knelt quietly. Squeezing her eyes shut tightly, she tried to fight the cloud of self-pity back and separate her happy memories from this tangle of grief and confusion.

Aamira's chest heaved as she drew in deep breaths - calming breaths - attempting to purify her lungs, her blood. She raised her head, revealing her tear-streaked cheeks. A hint of a smile touched her lips as she absorbed the peace surrounding her.


"Thank You, Xanth, for Your generous gifts and blessed serenity."

Aamira picked up the gift from the throne, cradling it in her hands as she rose. Feeling slightly happier - and much calmer - she walked into the snow again.

Inimicus walks through the portal a bit out of breath...all right he wasn't walking he was running but thats just details. As he pops out he stops and doubles over breathing heavily

" Xanth...damn....creatures. Do they...not get....I am not.....trying to harm them...damn it..."

Inimicus stands up and walks over to the ice maze, he leaned back against the icey wall ignoring the cold chill down his back. Stopping a moment to catch his breath he looked up, and got a face full of glitter sticking to the sweat covering his face making him look like a large glittery ornamnet. Sighing Inimicus spat, disloding some of the glitter from his mouth, unfortunatly some already had stuck to his teeth and they glittered in the light.

" Lovely...now I have glitter fangs...now all I need is one of my sister's old dressed and....hmm...no I already have the hair "

Sighing again he walked into the maze, honestly. It had started out as a pretty basic day...fixing the fence, drinking some blood, going to go to the portal. Then something decided he was a bit too close to wherever it was living and started chasing him, he didn't even catch a glimpse of what it was, only that it sounded angry. Walking forward he got nocked backwards and nocked out of his internal monologue by the barrage of snowballs. Lying on his back in the snow Inimicus seriously thought about just sitting there for a while...but he was here to pay his respects. Sighing a third time he got up and got another face full of snow, shaking his head to nock the snow off he walked forward and kneeled by the throne.

" Good day beloved Xanth. Thank you for all the gifts you give to all your children, and all that you continue to give. May this season warm your beautiful heart as much as your actions in it warm ours "

Inimicus reached forward and picked up the package, tucking it under his arm he smiled at Xanth and inclined his head again. Turning he walked out of the maze, ignoring the snowballs, deciding he should spend the day in town and hope the creature was gone by when he got back.

((OOC bad post I know, I apologize for the bad writing, its late and i'm tired XD))






Hmmm...I need a picture to frame...that lovely gift is going all to waste now without something to put in it. Come to think of it do they even have photos in this world? Ah no matter maybe I will go to Piper's shop and have her paint something to put into it...first however more important things

Inimicus walks through the portal in thought and keeps walking, his cape trails behind him bouncing a bit with each step and his hair is pushed gently by a breeze. Completley unaware of where he is going Inimicus continues to plan his day in his head. Normally something he would do the night before but last night he had over exerted himself...he really needed to watch his training he may be getting stronger and faster...and less weak with his increased intake of blood sating his fangs...but he was still growing in strength. He had woken up today on the floor of his house, still dressed, still lying where he had been training. Now he was here, behind as usual but what do you expect when the sun doesnt wake you up.

Siddenly Inimicus feels the impact of several cold and hard objects, he bends backwards but manages to find his center of balance quickly enough to right himself...another thing he seemed to be getting the hang of of late. However the cold assault did snap him back to attention and to his suprise he was standing in the Quadrangle. Blinking and tilting his head in suprise as he wiped the snowballs off his face. Apparently he had been on this route enough times that he didn't need to conciously walk it. Accepting the odd coincidence he walked forward and knelt by Xanth.

" Beautiful, beloved Xanth. Thank you, each day the more do we have you to thank. May all the love of your children this season warm your christmas, as your love warms ours "

Inimicus reached forward and took the package, gently tucking it under his arm. Standing he smiled at Xanth and bowed his head in respect.

" Until tommorow My Goddess "

Smiling Inimicus turned and headed out of the maze

Every day closer to christmas feels happier and happier. I live completley away from everyone but still it feels so nice to be so close to the holiday. I think i'll spend the day in the Cafe today, i do love her cheesecake

Inimicus walks through the portal sipping on a mug of...hot chocolate. Lowering his mouth to take a drink of the pleasently hot drink which apparently he chose today over blood he smiles and sighs in contentment. Smiling he walks forward into the maze, stopping suddenly he seemed to remember something. Inimicus turned around and leaned against the wall of the maze getting covered in snowman dropped glitter, taking his time he finished drinking the hot liquid rather faster than he may have wanted. Clutching the mug tightly in his right hand he turned on his heel and walked back into the maze. Inimicus got his traditional pelting of snowballs as he walked through the entrance, why rob Xanth of the joy she likely got from this little teasing fun, it was or should be a holiday for her as well. Smiling he set the mug down near the entrance and walked over to Xanth kneeling before her

" Beautiful goddess, thank you for all the gifts you have and continue to give every day. All glory to you as it is right and deserving to be "

Happilly Inimicus reached forward and took the package, lovingly tucking it under his arm he stood. Looking at Xanth in the eyes he smiled

" Merry Christmas, Xanth my goddess "

Turning on his heel once again Inimicus walked over, picking up his mug he left the Ice Maze heading to the cafe and a refill.

Naava walked up to the palatial maze again, still censored at the empty box she'd lifted a few days ago. Trying to find that thing that had hit her, Naava actually noticed the sign this time and walked over to read it. Smirking slightly, she balled her firsts, so that empty piece of crap was from Xanth? Probably due to her lip. Smirking, Naava wondered if hshe could get anything better if she at least ACTED nicer...

Suddenly Naava felt the impact of a loosely packed snowball slamming against her butt and she span around like lightning. The creature was at it again. Gritting her teeth, Naava ran into the maze and tried to locate her assaulter once more, only to end up in the throne room once again. Slowing her pace as she saw the thrown Naava approached gently, making each step be ore soft than usual as she approached the regal seat. Bowing deeply, Naava smiled innocently. "Forgive me, your grace, for my previous visit. I was not in the best of moods." She said in a melodic tone before accepting the once again beautifully wrapped package.

Trying to keep her mind a blank as possible, Naava bowed once more and thanked Xanth for the present before leaving the maze. This time actually waiting until she was out of the maze before she shredded the wrapping paper that surrounded the box.

Aamira could hardly contain herself - she absolutely loved the holidays. As she walked through the Underground, she was singing festive songs and grinning foolishly, attracting the stare of more than one harried shopper. With a little skip in her step, she reached the glistening maze and began a new tune, walking down the corridor in glee.

Her song didn't skip a beat when she landed on the ground and was promptly pummeled by dozens of snowballs. Well really, she reasoned, I was just asking for that one! She carefully stood up, sticking her tongue out at the snowmen, and continued on her way. Reaching the entrance to the room that contained Xanth's throne, she shook the snow out of her hair and brushed her clothing off as best she could. She looked ruefully at her skirt: two large wet spots hovered just over her knees. I wonder if having bad balance and wet clothing is considered disrespectful?

She walked to the throne and knelt, wincing as the frigid material rubbed against her skin. She bowed her head and silently thanked Xanth for all of Her generosity and blessings. Aamira cooed in delight at the beautiful package resting by her hand, then picked it up gently. She sank in a graceless curtsy that almost found her on the floor once more, then tucked the package in her jacket. Heading back out into the snow, she began to sing once more.

Inimicus calmly walked out of the portal smiling. Whatever had been bugging his fence for so long seemed to have stopped wanting to bother...or had found a way around the fence but he didnt want to think of that. Nacht was calming down and Himme was calming down in the new place. All in all it was working out really well, he had been able tp spend last night reading in front of a fire and drinking some Champagne, then spent a nice restful night where he had to do nothing when he woke up the next morning. He was in a very very good mood today. He had plans to head by the Hinds Head, maybe invite Bella out for a drink at the Cafe if she had time, he had no romantic interest in the firebrand like angel...but still he was hoping that they could become friends. They were no longer enemies...he had apologized to her finally after Halloween...but still there was a long road to become friends. However first he had some worship he wanted to do

Turning into the Ice Maze Inimicus closed his eyes preparing for the onslaught of snow which sure enough came immediatly proceeded by a rain of sparkles. This time he didn't even bother to wipe it off, the glitter stayed in his hair making him look like some stereotypical fairy from old earth Mythos. Smiling he walked over to the statue of Xanth and smiled at her, kneeling at her feet.

" Beautiful wise Xanth thank you for the beauty you have given us in this season and in every season. All love to you as it is deserving to be "

Inimicus stood and, smiling, locked eyes with Xanth incling his head to her. He turned and started whistling Silent Night walking out of the Ice Maze.

Naava strode into quadrangle once again, beautiful earrings dangling from her ears. Apparently flattery worked on everyone - even Xanth. Still, her mild success hadn't stopped Naava from trying to get Valitia to pull away from her overly controlling boyfrined for 10 minutes to come with her. Of course, the vampiress said no, but still, it had been a valiant effort with much arm pulling and many fake tears. It even ranked a compliment from Valitia on Naava persistence, but still the anyeli was dejected. So now, hear she stood, wings tightly closed to her body to deflect the evil snowballs as she stepped in and her stomach flipped.

The truth was, Naava wasn't scared of seeing Xanth today, but more that she might actually see Nymphadora. More than that, the bratling nymph would likely still be wearing her mother's locket. Naava's locket. That prissy sow had gotten her whole life on a silver platter, at least as far as Naava was concerned. Dora hadn't been forced to abandon her life to care for their younger sibling after both parents were dead. Dora hadn't had her nymph rights interrupted and thus all hopes of being able to bond with her element dashed by a single sentence from another person of in the wilderness. Dora hadn't had to do the most despicable of things to eat, to have shelter for herself - let alone another. But somehow the girl, now aide, did find that it was fitting for her to be judge over Naava.

Still, as much as Naava wished to contend her sister's power, deep inside the skotadi knew she had not the will nor the fire power to do so. Suddenly, Naava found herself prostrate on the floor as she tripped over the gift wrapped present in front of Xanth's throne. Blushing furiously and cursing under her breath, Naava picked herself up and grabbed the present at her feet. "My apologies." She said, not even looking up to see the woman - and worse yet possibly her sister.

Darting from the room as quickly as possible, Naava would wait until much later to open this gift as she had way too much to think about otherwise.

Alright all good intentions aside today I actually need to go and get gifts for Christmas. Lets see...Scarlett needs something small and respectful, Ammanity...well she is getting something large, Bella needs a little something...hmmmm Xanth of course I need to make an offering to for Christmas...hmmm I always forget someone I hope this year I don....

*SMACK!* *THUD!*

" owwwwww "

Inimicus walked out of the portal trying to get his thoughts organized, usually he was put together but he always put stuff off far too much around Christmas time. He didn't get how in this world the only people he was friends with were women...on Earth that would have made him very happy, but he WAS trying to clean up his act and doing a good job he thought. However as usual Inimicus generally put too much focus into one thing and as a result walked smack into the Ice Maze wall and fell into the snow.

Rubbing his head Inimicus stood up and shook his head

aaaallllright I guess I will be forced to think of that afterwards, so now for my daily prayer

Inimicus walked into the maze and wandered the coridors, finding the entrance he walked out getting smached in the head by the same trio of snowballs that always met him...he swore these snowmen had it out for him, however in a way it was somewhat amusing. Walking over to the throne he knelt in front of Xanth and spoke happilly

" Beautiful Xanth being in your presence warms the season far more than ever before, thank you for all the gifts you have given and continue to give. May your season be as warm as that I am having thanks to you "

Inimicus smiled at Xanth as he stood, tucking the wrapped present under his arm. Bowing to Xanth he shot her another wide, white toothed, smile before wandering out of the maze.

now its time to go shopping...ughhh

I do hope the couriers delivering my gifts this time are a little better than that last one. I mean sure Ammanity is a nymph but i would hope professionals would have more control over themselves...hmm ah right need to turn here

Eyes lowered to the ground thinking over what he needs to do Inimicus wanders out of the portal as every day. Christmas always got him distracted, every year he forgot something, every single one without fail, he hoped this year he wouldnt make the same mistake but somewhere in him he knew he would. He reached the entrance to the Ice Maze and turned in under the shower of glitter and walked the ice halls. Continuing to think over his lists several times he missed the turn into the Quadrangle quite a few times before, as he walked past another time, one of the snowmen chucked a snowball through which landed a glancing blow on his head shaking him out of his internal monologue.

" Ah...right, I forgot i actually need to turn here...maze...right yes...hmmm I wonder what I should give Xanth...money...flowers...hmmm "

Making the turn into the Quadrangle Inimicus walked over to the throne, smiling up at his goddess looking her in the eyes he sank down, kneeling before her.

" Glorious Xanth, thank you for all you have and continue to give to us your children. May your season be as glorious as that you are giving to us...all glory to you as it is deserving to be "

Smiling Inimicus stood up and bowed his head to Xanth. Turning he began humming a german christmas carol, heading out of the maze to do some more shopping.
