The May Queen is back in the forum. It's safe to assume she left at some point; Frea's wearing a new (but still floral) dress and today's flower crown is made of evening primroses and bleeding hearts. She's also got a bright smile and a plate of cookies, both of which are offered to any interested passers-by from her perch atop a low stone wall. If she ever had shoes, she either hasn't found them or isn't on speaking terms with them; her bare feet swing and tap a rhythm against the stones while she waits for someone to talk to.

"Anyone want a cookie?"

((Beware! The cookies are LOLed. Different cookies will give your character a day or two of various motherly instincts and/or symptoms.
--Peanut butter cup-stuffed chocolate cookies mean your character experiences a phantom pregnancy. Give them any or all of the worst and most cliched symptoms. Bloating, aches and pains, hormonal shifts, morning sickness, cravings, whatever you want to inflict on your poor characters who probably totally deserve it.
--Chocolate chip cookies will turn your character into a Mother hen. Which may be useful, given what's going on around them; it may at the same time be incredibly annoying.
--Sugar cookies with the super sparkly sugar tops make your character a Fairy Godmother. Whether or not they can do minor magic to help fulfill the wishes of the worthy is up to you, but either way, they're going to feel compelled to help make happy endings come true.
--Oatmeal raisin cookies will help your characters remember their connections to the earth and make them total Earth Mothers. Be one with nature! Talk to the animals! Just remember, mostly they talk about food and sex; it's not as fun as Disney makes it seem.))

While these meetings would perhaps suggest the formality of his desk, Dr. Hill instead is strolling through the Nexus, smiling as he watches the snowflakes drift down from the sky. A take-away cup is held in both his hands, the drink gently steaming.

He seems content to just wander for a time, more interested in his coffee and the falling snow than addressing anyone just yet. The psychoanalyst seems perfectly unaware how bizarre his previous appearance ended up being, or that his prolonged absence since then was also sorely noted. Unaware or uncaring.

Finally, after one last sip of coffee, he simply asks, tone light and conversational: "Well? What did we learn?"

((The conclusion post for the bodyswap event! Get yer details here before tagging in! Also, feel free to tag in if your character just wants to talk to/yell at the doctor in general. And don't hesitate to comment on the OOC post or send me a PM if you have any concerns or questions!))

Someone is out wandering the Nexus with an armful of papers and a roll of duct tape. He's aggressively biting off strips of tape and posting notices on walls, posts, conveniently large icicles, basically anywhere he feels someone might look. Though the little man is bundled very well, just enough of his face is exposed to reveal that it's Steve Rogers! One of them, anyway. Little Steve. 

Or, honestly? Given the flyer he's posting? He could be anyone. (Probably Harrowheart.)

"Hey!" he hollers out to anyone around. "Anyone seen this sweatervest guy? Anyone got any news on the whole body-swappin' thing?" He holds up his mittened hand and lofts a flyer in his grip. 
((Threadhopping highly encouraged! Come show off your awful bodyswaps. A continuation of the Walk A Mile event))

Dr. Hill is back again. So soon? Something must be going on. He's without his desk, instead pacing the forum around thoughtfully.

"Empathy! A vital trait in both my line of work and as a person in general. The ability to understand and share the feelings of another. To commiserate in sorrow, in joy, in pain.

"But how often do you use it? How often do you really attempt to understand one another? Well! I would like to propose an exercise. I would like to pair you off and encourage you to really, truly walk a mile in one another's shoes. I assure you, the process will be painless and I am certain you will learn a great deal about one another."

He looks like he's about to turn and leave, but then pauses, recalling something with a raised finger and a smile. "Oh, and of course, this process will run its course on its own. It will end when you have gotten the most out of this exercise. Fear not, it's not forever."

((Batten down the hatches, It's a NEXUS LOL! Namely, bodyswapping! With OOC clearance and planning with one another, two characters will end up stuck in the body of one another for an indeterminate amount of time. It wears off when you want it to; last an hour, last a week, who cares! It's done when you say it's done.

This post is here for scheming with your fellow players! If you have a character you want to throw into the mix but have no one to pair off with, there's the perfect place to plan it!

If you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to ask me in PMs!))
u_can_have_it_4_a_song: A Man of Wealth and Taste (Meeting)
[personal profile] u_can_have_it_4_a_song
A table has been set up in the forum, hung with banners and piled with boxes. A slim, well-dressed man fusses over it, straightening signs and smoothing the tablecloth. The signs and banners are for a high school pep and marching band. When the table and the wrapped bars of chocolate on it are arranged to the man's satisfaction, he steps behind it and raises his voice to call attention.

"Friends! It's the season in many places for the resumption of studies. Children are going back to school, and those schools are woefully unfunded! Tragic, I know, but it's become customary for the funding of activities like sports, art, even music, to be supplied by the sale of treats--such as these!" A sweep of his hand indicates the confections on display.

"The town of Sunnydale always has a particularly difficult time, in that area, I'm sorry to say, and now more than ever. Their school band is hard beset, what with consistently leading the division in fatalities, but now? The majority of their town has been devoured by a sinkhole!" He removes his hat, holding it over his heart as he shakes his head with an expression of sorrow.

It passes. "But! The spirits of those children remain indefatigable, and all they need are instruments, uniforms, and other such trifles, to carry on. So, in the name of lending a hand to those in need, I come to you, good denizens of the Nexus, with the chance to show your support. Reclaim a little taste of youth, and help youths hard beset, all for the flimsiest of payments. I take all forms of currency, and arrangements can be made for deferred billing or other alternatives."

"So: will you think of the children?"

((LOL Alert! This is indeed the candy from an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Eating it reverts a character's emotional maturity to adolescence, when hormones run high, judgment runs low, and leading priorities include having fun and impressing the interesting sex(es). The effects are temporary, but seem to be consistent with the quantity consumed, and come on fairly quickly. Have fun with it!))
