Tristan took the offered sparkler with a grin and a wink.

Camille...well, she took it, at the very least. There wasn't any sort of change in her facial expression, but Tristan seemingly covered for her;

"Oh, don't worry, she loves it." Tristan said with a wave of her hand.

"I love it." Camille said, deadpan.

"Ya see?" Tristan nudged Camille with her eblow, grinning all the while, "So how's the party professor?"

Lilla stared at Rory’s extended hand for a moment, before her own reached out, seemingly of its own accord. Touching, a voice somewhere in the back of her mind said. Touching! Red alert! Abort mission! ABORT MISSION! She grabbed Rory’s hand and shook it stiffly, with an uncertain smile.

“Lilla Bleidd,” she replied, then brought her hand back to two-hand her cup as she took another drink. “So... um... this is a... nice party...?” She slowly inched away from the still-expanding pool of punch on the ground, trying not to look like she was walking away from Rory. ”There’s dancing, and music. And punch!” She held up her drink and motions to it with a wide, awkward smile on her face. The punch splashed up and then back down into the cup, thankfully avoiding falling on either of them this time.
"It is important to me that those who would judge me see me as I truly am, and not as I wish them to see me."

Lilla Bleidd - Beacon Academy first year. ”Someday, I know we will meet again, in the shade of a life to die for.”

Dominique 'Alice' Pentaghast - Haven Academy Third Year. "What are you worth? The people you love, or the people you hurt?"

It seemed, from her handshake, that Lilla wasn't quite at ease with this whole scene -- Rory could relate only too well to that. When she started to back away from him slightly he wondered if it wasn't him who was making her uncomfortable... then she mentioned punch and his brain clicked back into gear. 'I'm making small talk while standing in a puddle of fruit juice -- I must seem like a complete airhead to her!'

"Ah, yeah... punch indeed." Remembering that he still had a couple of small kitchen cloths tucked away from handling hot trays earlier, Rory fished around in his pockets until he had hold of them and quickly knelt down to mop up the spilled punch that was spreading her way. "I'm, um, not usually one for events like these, but I guess it's a good way to meet people. I'm still trying to get a handle on who all the other first years are, to be honest."

Punch decently well cleaned up now, he tried quickly to figure out what to do with the damp soiled cloths, ultimately electing just to hold them for now instead of breaking away from the conversation at risk of being rude. As he stood up, though, Rory's mind went blank on what to say next, leading to a few moments of awkward silence before he finally managed "So... what kind of weapon do you use?".







It was good to see the students -- well, one so far, at any rate -- liked his festive gift idea. "Oh, well... for the most part." He still wasn't sure what to make of the odd exchange with Merletta earlier, but was doing his best to not dwell on it. The old Faunus smiled warmly. "This time of year always brings out the exciting and unexpected, to be sure. Truth be told, I've not been back for a holiday formal in... goodness me, decades now! Brings back memories, this."

"How about the two of you? Just coming in, I see. Big plans for the holiday season?

"Well..." Tristan coughed, "I was planning on mostly staying here for the most part. The holiday season...well, let's just say it doesn't bring back a lot of happy memories so..." Tristan turned her attention back to her sparkler and started fiddling with it, obviously trying not to continue that particular train of thought.

"...My family lives under a mountain." Camille said bluntly, "It's rather cold during the winter time."

"...Are you saying your just mooching off of Beacon's heaters?" Tristan asked.

Camille thought for a moment, then nodded, "Yes."
