((OOC: ughhh mind is dying, running out of things to say here XD))





Inimicus wandered through the portal as he had every day. He was curious as to wether his gifts had gotten to their receipients yet...he hadnt expected any of the people to come running to thank him but still...he hadn't heard anything and it felt a bit odd, especially as he lived very near to Bella's sanctuary. However he had to trust in the couriers, the last one may have hit on Ammanity in front of him while delivering his gift to her, but he still had gotten the job done quickly and efficiently. Sighing Inimicus brushed a hand through his hair, it ended too quickly, it was a nervous habit to do this and he still hadn't gotten used to the new length, his head felt naked without its normal long hair. Albeit it was still down to his shoulders, but Inimicus was very picky about his hair, shaking his head he wandered into the maze, quickly finding his way into the quadrangle he ignored the impact of the snowballs on his face being far to use to them now. Smiling he noticed his goddess and walked over to her throne, kneeling into the spot where his knees had worn to the grass he prayed quietly

" Beloved goddess, thank you for all your blessings. All glory to you as it is well and deserving to be "

Smiling Inimicus reached forward and tucked the package under his arm, standing up he smiled at Xanth and bowed to her. Quickly turning to the impact of more snowballs he wandered out of the maze.

Inimicus walked out of the portal and stopped, looking down and tugging on his shirt he admired the new buttons. It had been a long night getting them on there and they still needed to be broken in, the shirt felt a bit stiff, but they fit right in. He stopped and tilted his head smiling

You know...it occurs to me that this could be constituted as being branded...but still they look so nice. That being said, so what if she is branding me...I am her servant, and that journal she gave me really is an eye opener...it tells me so much about what it means to be a vampire and at the same time a human...hmmm, ah anyway.

Inimicus looked up, ceasing his quiet admiration of the silver buttons with their purple X engravings and wandered towards the Ice Maze. Quickly pursing his lips tightly as he passed under the shower of glitter, he didn't want to have glitter fangs again he swore even animals laughed at him with those things, he wandered into the slightly darker maze. He loved it in here, maybe that little part of him which loved the dark, but this maze was amazing. Quickly wandering out of the quadrangle he braced himself for the snowballs...and nothing came. Opening his eyes he turned in both directions like someone waiting to cross a street and hmmed in ammazement as he saw nothing there. Smiling he wandered into the quadrangle, not having gone a few feet he felt the impact of several snowballs in the small of his back completley nocking him off balance and causing him to fall into the snow, quickly Inimicus did a somersault and turned around completley covered in snow to see the snowmen on top of the maze.

did Xanth put some of her intellect in those things because they seem to be planning tactically and it unnerves me...snowmen should NOT be able to perform tactical manuevers like ambushes

Sighing Inimicus stood up, brushing himself off he went over to the throne and kneeled before Xanth

" Beautiful Xanth, thank you for all the blessings and the guidance you give me...your presence is truly a light in this world. May all glory flow to you as it is deserving to be "

Inimicus slowly tucked the wrapped gift which was handed to him by Xanth under his arm, standing he smiled looking at Xanth and inclined his head to her before wandering out of the maze smiling broadly.

Guiltily, Aamira slipped through the maze. She hadn't been to visit Xanth for a few days and felt rather bad about it. Festivities were heating up as the holiday drew closer, and leaving the sanctuary had been simply out of the question. Even with her guilt, however, Aamira couldn't help but smile at her luck - the maze was rather busy today and she had thus far been able to avoid crashing awkwardly into the ground.

Finally spotting the entrance to Xanth's throne, she ducked into the peaceful room. Making her way over to the throne, Aamira knelt sheepishly and said a small apology, followed by her standard prayer. Standing up, she sighed over the beautifully wrapped gift before tucking it securely in her coat. Feeling much better, she wandered over to door once more. The crowd was thinning out and Aamira could see the snowmen pelting unsuspecting passerbys with packed balls of snow. Grinning, she walked out into the light, waiting for the inevitable trip to the ground and humming a festive tune.

Inimicus appeared through the portal in the cold market square, his feet sinking into the white snow beneath them. His face was cracked in a broad smile and he was singing softly to himself, or more chanting but the intent was to sing.

" Tommorow, tommorow, Christmas is tommorow "

Despite his self induced isolation Inimicus loved Christmas, tommorow he would have fun opening his gifts, well the few he hadn't already opened which was to say very little. He had kept some of the gifts Xanth had given him unopened so he could have something to open on the 24th. Sure on the 25th he would have to clean up from the night before but still tommorow was Christmas and he was happy. Inimicus skipped over to the ice maze, looking completley ridiculous as his cape bobbed in the air behind him with each skip. Normally he would care and be a bit more subdued, but who would fault him so close to the holiday. Happilly he walked into the ice maze, in mid-skip he got to the entrance to the quadrangle and was met with more snowballs knocking him out of the air, like a ball, in mid skip. Well that hurt his back slightly, but at least it was nice and cold below him. Slowly he stood up and bowed to the snowmen

" Nice aim, Nice aim...can't fault you tha...."

As he spoke he was met with another snowball which promtly lodged in his mouth causing him to spit and sputter as he swallowed some of the snow, spitting the rest out. Now that was vindictive...and eerily good aim. Peering over at the throne he really did wonder how much of her Intelligence the goddess had placed into these snow golems. Shaking his head to clear his thoughts he wandered over to the throne, kneeling on the ground in front of Xanth.

" Beloved Xanth, thank you for the merriness you have brought to us these holidays...and every day. May your holiday be as blessed as ours my goddess "

Inimicus smiled and tucked the package under his arm, standing he bowed to Xanth and winked. He was in a very good mood, turning he walked out of the ice maze.

Inimicus stepped through the portal positivley beaming, how could he not be happy it was Christmas today! He was going to have a nice night opening the gifts that he hadn't yet opened from Xanth, drinking some Champagne in front of a fire and reading...sure probably lonely but it would be a nice night. He walked across the street from the portal, briskly today the snow showing his quick steps, wandering into the ice maze he made his way to the quadrangle entrance and was met with his traditional three snowballs. Smiling he wiped away the snow from his face and walked over to Xanth ignoring the snowmen. Kneeling in front of her he spoke, his rich tenor bouncing around the area:

" Merry Christmas beloved Xanth....thank you for all you give and continue to give to me and to all. May your heart be warmed by the love of all your children "

Smiling Inimicus tucked the package under his arm and bowed to Xanth, locking eyes with her he smiled and bowed a second time before turning on his heel and walking out of the maze.

Naava walked down the street, more confident than previously as she felt more like herself now than before. She'd stayed away from this place for several days after she'd received that note from Xanth, but she couldn't resist returning after she'd heard the mass of rumors about the glorious gifts that people had been given, and seeing as this was the last day... Sighing, Naava reluctantly let in to her urge to go into the maze - grumbling as the glittery powder covered her head and her wings were pounded with a few more snowballs. Newt year those censoreds would get theirs.

Notions of revenge aside, Naava navigated her way through the maze gracefully, yet amazingly inaccurately. Mazes were definitely not Naava's forte, and this was evidenced by the fact that by the time she finally reach the center -where Xanth sat - she'd taken a total of 36 wrong turn, and ten of those were the same one more than once. Something about being surrounded by walls was unnerving for Naava, making her squirm with discomfort. Perhaps it was her underlying elemental bond that had never been realized, could it be she had that in common with her sister as well?

Sighing, Naava bowed her head slightly to the regal thrown, knowing full well that scoffing at her would get her jack squat and she really wanted to end the year on a high note. After all, the rest of the time had been pure crap. "My apologies Xanth, but things are often more complicated than simple forgiveness... at least in my life." She said in her best nymph-like tone. It was true, forgiveness never seemed so clean cut to Naava. In truth she didn't quite understand the idea of letting go of something you could lord over someone else, but still - deep down - somewhere - maybe there was a part of her that actually wanted to feel 'forgiveness.' (Again, maybe)

Thanking Xanth for the gift wrapped box again, Naava grabbed it and began the hour or two long walk out of the labyrinth. She really needed to get to Calin's party before all the booze was gone.
