l'Happy Hour IV: TGIVendredi

The French presence in Milliways may have quieted down a bit, as new guests come to the place and old residents settle into their ways. But it's 14 juillet, the Fête nationale, anniversary of the kick-off of one of the greatest Revolutions, and Lesgle isn't letting it pass unmarked.

He's an old hand at this by now, and bustles around behind the bar. Gets out the tricolor flag, the bunting, the cockades. Cheese, fruit, crackers. Sandwiches. Red wine, champagne, and Various Blue Drinks. A welcoming smile for all comers.

VIVE LA FRANCE!


reads the chalkboard, and

VIVENT LES PEUPLES!


and

Ça ira!





((Good heavens, this guy has been doing this for four years? Party thread rules apply--hop around, talk amongst yourselves, have fun! I might throw in some of my other characters as well for partying purposes.))

Ugh, what a show. Not that it's not colourful, but...just ugh. Jim winces at the state of it as he passes, and tilts his head at Bossuet sorts it all out.

'Why?' he says, after a minute or two.

'I could be.'

Or maybe not. Jim steps up to the bar and regards the bunting for a moment more. Then he puts his textbook down and leans against the counter, making sure none of the flags brush his clothes.

In the spirit of the occasion, he switches into impeccable French.

'Why, would that offend you?'

Cassian's in a neat suit when he enters and carrying a datapad when he sees all the decorations. This job is easy enough but he can tell its going to be one that feels longer than it is.

The language isn't one he knows and he undoes his collar as he gets closer, "What's the occasion?"

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-07-14 08:09 pm (UTC)(link)
That's a lot of words but the heart of them seems to be freedom and Cassian unconsciously stands straighter, the guise of the tired bureaucrat slipping. He doesn't need it here but he's good at being careful. His suit in his world would be recognized as out of fashion but decent quality, it doesn't fit him as well as it could, it was made for a bulkier man and has been adjusted, "And that all happened on this day?"

Not dressed for festivities he hangs back a little as he did at the fair.

Eric responds to friendly smiles with visible gratitude.
Well, this Eric does anyway.

So he ambles over (no striding, no swagging) and says, "Hi. Have you done - all of that?"

The drinks and food. The festive decor.

"--Ah!" Joly is drawn up short by the boards, and blinks a little. Is it really already--? But then it would be, all right. He lines up a set of drinks in tricolor. It's not a celebration without drinking, right?

Joly grins, and leans in to reciprocate. "--and to mine. You always remember!" He's genuinely impressed! "I wish I had your sense of the calendar-- I quite lose my days here."

He doesn't want to think about that too much at the moment, so he lifts a glass instead, one full of Something Blue. "To the Revolution!"

There are...festivities?

Garnet blinks, as she enters the bar. For what? It's not the Fourth of July, the celebration she usually associates with red, white, and blue. No, this is something else. She vaguely thinks she should recognize it--it's not unfamiliar--but actually she's paid very little attention to human holidays.

She spots a small human she recognizes (Jolly?), lining up his drinks organized by color. "Is this a ritual?"

Belatedly, she remembers to add, "Hello."
merryeccentricities: (Default)

[personal profile] merryeccentricities 2017-07-15 02:34 am (UTC)(link)

​wow she's tall. And...tall. Joly is briefly awed, but luckily there's always alcohol and manners to smooth things over!

"Hello!" Her way of saying things is a little odd? But-- "Yes, I suppose it is! We're celebrating an important day for us--a turning point, if not the true beginning, of the great Revolution of our nation, the liberation of the people from the tyranny of the past! Will you share a drink with us?"

Interesting board!

France, he recognizes. Gavroche and all. The middle is also fairly easy to guess, at least. The last... "'It goes?'" he asks as he slides onto a seat. He's obviously guessing, but he's picked up some Latin over the years (and Aleran is a really weird language sometimes). "Idiomatic?"

Language nerd alert.

"Oh!" Fantine looks around, smiling, as she enters. It's so festive, and colorful, and--yes, it's one of the young men from Bahorel's time, isn't it? Bald, but young.

"Bonjour," she says to him, smiling.

[personal profile] pro_patria_mortuus 2017-07-16 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Of course he's here. And of course he's smiling back, the kind of quiet smile that shines.

"You always keep track."

Remembering a date would be nothing special at home, nothing worth remarking on; one can hardly not keep track of the calendar. (Enjolras feels. Marius Pontmercy, for example, might disagree.) But here, it's peculiarly difficult. It certainly feels nothing like a full year since the last time Lesgle put out a tricolor spread for the 14th of July. But that's the kind of thought it's disquieting to dwell on for long, and to no real point that Enjolras has found so far. The important thing is: the calendar here says 14 juillet, and Lesgle always remembers in time to celebrate it, and here beyond life and France the bar is covered in red and white and blue for the Revolution and the French Republic of the future.

So: fraternal arm-clasps!

Steven, never one to resist a party, has found a place on one of the stools, swinging his legs and studying the signs. Like a Cool Person, one with a tall tricolor milkshake. "--What's a Ka Eera?" The tall guy with the hair seems like he might know!

Fantine is sitting quietly. She has three suspiciously bright little shot-glasses in front of her: one a violent red, one glaring white, one electric blue. She has them arranged neatly, and is dreamily admiring the decorations, but hasn't gotten around to trying one yet.

Idly looking around, she sees someone else as quiet as she: that M. What's-his-name-oh-yes-Enjolras, Bahorel's friend.

No doubt this day is very special to all of them. "Hello," she says, nodding in his direction.

It's a party! Of ...some sort! Steven bounces up onto a stool and reaches for one of the bright blue drinks, only to have a tall tricolored milkshake pop up in front of him instead. Fair trade! He's not sure why everything is in stripes, but it's fun!


...There aren't any hats though. At least not that he can see. He spins around slowly on a stool and looks for party hats- or maybe there are games happening?
