Here are the girls in a fun shopping trip! The guys just had to crash the party toward the end, but we couldn't get them to let us dress them up too!
As always, we lost track of time - so it's a bit longer than our normal posts. Enjoy!
Jen: Hey babes
Brigette: Hi Anastasia
Anastasia: Hey Brigette. How are you doing?
Jen: Nah, just Jenna and Brig
Rosyani: Hello ladies.
Brigette: I'm good, you?
Anastasia: Not bad.
Letarri: Hello all. Yea, she’s having too much fun with the Sims.
Jen: Hi Rosyani and Lettari
Jen: Lol. Awesome
Jenna: *takes Brigette and Rosyani's arms and links them with hers* Let’s go shopping!
Letarri: I love shopping!
Jenna: I love it now that I have money!
Rosyani: Are you excited about your date Brigette?
Brigette: Er ... I'm more nervous
Letarri: Don't be. Etharas is a bit rough around the edges, but he really has a good heart.
Jen: Wow, I didn't expect that from Letarri lol
Letarri: I don't HATE him. He was a jerk to ME doesn't mean he will be to HER
Jen: You're just trying to get his attention off you, aren't you, Letarri? ;)
Brigette: Oh thanks guys ... setting me up with a jerk. I see..
Anastasia: Aww, he's not really a jerk just ... misunderstood?
Jen: LOL. I think you'll like him, Brig
Brigette: *shrug*He looks cute
Anastasia: Yes. We wouldn't have set you both up if we didn't think you'd like each other.
Letarri: He is quite handsome. I saw him with out his shirt on. *blush*
Rosyani: I had to endure the site as well. *sigh* *shrug* He has taken care of himself.
Jenna: ... This is a cute skirt ...
Rosyani: Let me see.
Jenna: Wait, I'm looking for a top to go with it...
Brigette: So ... he's in shape?
Anastasia: Yes, very much so.
Brigette: *spaces out a bit* Hmmm
Anastasia: He's 6'5. How tall are you Brig?
Jen: She's your height, Anastasia. lol
Anastasia: Oh wow
Brigette: Good. I don't go for short guys
Rosyani: I do not like short faens either. I am glad my husband is so tall. Makes me feel safe.
Brigette: Well ... I don't see how it would work, romantically, with a guy shorter than me.
Anastasia: How so?
Brigette: *Looks through the racks of clothing* Well I mean ... I would always have to be on top I would think...
Anastasia: HAHAHA No, not really. My first husband was shorter than me and we didn't have any issues.
Brigette: Heehee, yeah I guess not. But still. Tall guys are more my thing
Anastasia: Mine too. Which is why most of my characters do too. Heck, all my male characters are always over 6 feet tall.
Jen: *Nods* yup. The tall ones are hot. Funny cuz I am so short you would think it wouldn't matter to me but ... it does lol
Anastasia: It matters to me too. My husband now is 5'10 and that's as short as I'll go LOL
Jen, Brig and Jenna: giggles
Jenna: My ex was 6'2. *sigh*
Rosyani: Now THAT guy was a jerk.
Letarri: I agree.
Jenna: *blushes* I'd rather not talk about him.
Rosyani: So is Brig going to try anything on or just browse?
Brigette: I found a top I like ... let me find a fitting room.
Letarri: Where are you going on your date?
Jenna: Take this skirt too!
Anastasia: I wonder what Etharas would wear.....
Brigette: OMG I don't know! Etharas just said "out" and I didn't ask!
Anastasia: Might have to make HIM play dress up hehehe
Jen: YES! and WE get to dress him! LOL
Anastasia: Do you want me to bring him here to ask him?
Brigette: Ah ... you could just call him maybe?
Anastasia: OH! If he comes now, we could make his dress up teheee LOL Okay Brig
Jenna: No, then it wouldn't be a surprise when they meet up!
Jen: Lol, Jenna...
Anastasia: Etharas doesn't know and says he'll do whatever you like Brig.
Letarri: What about one of those movies?
Brigette: *Looks at the other faeries for help* What do you guys think?
Rosyani: No, dinner would be better for a first date.
Jen: Rosyani ... Brig is a vampire. Dinner might be weird...
Rosyani: Vampires can't eat?
Brigette: lol, Jen, I can order a stake...
Jen: and what? Stare at it?
Anastasia: I think you mean steak -- a stake would kill you right?
Jen: Ooh yeah, steak lol You know you won't like how it taste.
Anastasia: Even if she ordered it rare?
Brigette: I would have to order RAW lol.
Anastasia: Well, yea. But at least you could still eat something
Jenna: Yeah, everything non bloody taste like an ash tray. Yech
Anastasia: Then order a salad with Type O Dressing BAHAHAHAH
Brigette: We could go to a vampire-owned restaurant. *shrug*
Anastasia: Oh Brig, Etharas just called and wondered if you wanted him to wear his normal tunic and leggings or wear something like you?
Rosyani: Would Etharas have an issue with the food there?
Jenna: O.O OMG, they have those?
Brigette: Anastasia, he can wear whatever he's comfortable in. Rosy, no, they have normal food. They just slip some blood into their vampire customer's food
Jenna: Let me guess, Jalmari owns those restaurants too? *rolls her eyes*
Letarri: How do they know who is a vampire or not? Or do the customers just say so?
Brigette: Well, Jenna, he started them ...
Anastasia: Poor Jenna.
Brigette: Ah, Letarri, we smell differently ... and look different too.
Letarri: Of course. Forgot about the looks.
Jenna: Yeah, we smell like death...
Brigette: LOL. No.
Anastasia: Oh. lol
Jenna: Don't lie. We smell like ... I don’t know. But if YOU could smell it you'd freak out
Anastasia: Who me?
Brigette: Okay ... I'm coming out of the fitting room...
Jenna: Yes you, and maybe even the faeries too, I don’t know.
Letarri: *leans into Jenna's neck and inhales* I smell maybe a hint of like...earth? But not death
Jenna: *sniffs herself* Really?!
Brigette: So what do you think?
Rosyani: Oh goodness, look at that skirt.
Anastasia: Looks hot Brig
Rosyani: Umm, if that is something you like, then I suppose it looks good.
Jenna: I don’t know, I think you look like you're asking for it, Brigette
Brigette: Um, maybe I am?
Anastasia: Well, Etharas doesn't need an invitation. You could wear a zip up parka and some overalls.....
Rosyani: Anastasia, don't lie about him like that. He DOES have some standards.
Jen: He does?
Anastasia: Well, yea he does. I mean, he does have certain thing he's attracted to and other things he's not
Brigette: *goes into dressing room and changes* What about this?
Anastasia: Hot stuff again. I think the skirt is the wrong color for your skin tone though.
Brigette: *looks down at skirt and makes a face* Yeah, maybe
Jenna: Like what kinds of things? Big boobs? Long legs? Etc...
Anastasia: Ummm...He likes...umm..I don't know. Rosyani was the one that said he had standards in the first place!
Jenna: lol. Well, Rosyani?
Rosyani: Well, I think he prefers athletic types with a bit of spunk. Etharas loves to fight.
Anastasia: And then make up! lol
Anastasia: Yea, he needs a girl that can keep up with him physically and mentally.
Jenna: Brigette, I still think you're showing a little too much skin. Try a dress. Here... *hands her a dress*
Rosyani: I agree. Too much skin.
Brigette: *snickers* I wonder if he can keep up with a vampire?
Anastasia: He'll die trying.
Brigette: *takes the dress and goes back into the dressing room.
Brigette: Hmm... this dress really isn't 'me'.
Rosyani: Too bad. We want to see it.
Brigette: *walks out*
Anastasia: That is so cute! I love it
Letarri: I like the sleeves on that one. Really classy. To me that says, I'm sexy but I'm not trashy
Jen: I agree, Brig, it cute, sexy, and classy
Jenna: *crosses her arms and grins* You're welcome lol
Rosyani: I still think the skirt is far too short....
Letarri: You really need to relax.
Jenna: Oh Rosyani! You act like a mother. Have some fun and chill.
Rosyani: *crosses arms over chest* I can have fun and wear long skirts, thank you very much.
Brigette: How about this, Rosyani? .....
Rosyani: Well, it's still a bit short for my taste, but I do like the design.
Anastasia: Anything above your knees will be a bit short to Rosyani, just so you know
Jenna: You like that it's baggy and stripped?
Rosyani: I like that it seems to form fit without choking her, yes
Brigette: Lol. I was messing with her Anastasia ... it's just a big shirt, not even a dress
Brig and Jenna: LOL
Jen: Okay, let’s vote on it. All in favor of the outfit #3?
Jenna: *raises her hand*
Rosyani: I suppose. It is the best out of all three.
Jen: It is!
Anastasia: *chuckles* Etharas will be pleased
Brigette: *frowns* I liked the first one...
Anastasia: Will you wear a jacket or something? I just seems like it was a dress that wasn't finished. Besides, Etharas will really like you in Outfit #3.
Brigette: The first one? And what does a vamp need a jacket for??
Anastasia: Style? I wear jackets just for the look sometimes
Jen: Yeah I do too.
Brigette: *frowns* Jackets are annoying.
Anastasia: Oh ya know what it is. Your black hair blends into the black top for outfit #1 and messes up the flow of the outfit
Brigette: Why would I be buying new clothes if not to show them off?
Anastasia: For outfit #1 can you find that same shirt in just a different color or something? I don't know.
Brigette: Maybe ...
Jenna: NO! We already voted!
Jen: Yeah, I agree with Jenna. The dress is uber cute on you
Letarri: I agree.
Brigette: Oh, fine! *changes back into her normal clothes* I can't believe I'm doing this....
Rosyani: Doing what? Do you not want to go on a date with Etharas?
Brigette: Practically going on a blind date with a faery ... no offense.
Rosyani: Is there something wrong with that? I knew my husband for only a week before we united.
Letarri: Yes, so a date is harmless.
Brigette: *wince* Ah ... sorry, I shouldn't have said faery. It's more the fact that I'm dating again...
Rosyani: Oh no, not the faery part. I meant the blind date part.
Jenna: A week? Jesus Christ!
Rosyani: What? He had to save me from his father. His father tried to kill me but he could not act against a holy union.
Rosyani: So he convinced me to marry him to save my life.
Jenna: Well ... I guess that's different then
Letarri: It really is rather sweet.
Jenna: Ah ... yeah. I hope everything works out. You know. In the long term...
Jen: Oh shush, Jenna.
Anastasia: What does that mean? Oh wait, never mind.
Jen: Ignore her, Rosy, she had a bad break up.
Rosyani: I see. Well, I pray he does not get tired of having me around or regrets uniting to me. *shrug*
Letarri: Oh stop it. He loves you and would never tire of you. Puhlease. *rolls eyes*
Brigette: You're very lucky, Rosyani. I wish ... I wish ... well... I'm sure you know...
Rosyani: It will happen for you one day too Brig. I promise.
Jen: You do, Rosy?
Rosyani: I do what? Am I misunderstanding something?
Jen: Haha, sorry, I had an image of Rosyani writing the book to give Brig a happy ending
Brigette: Jen is going all psycho-writer on us.
Anastasia: I had the idea to bring "Brigette" into the story, just not as the vamp she is - but as something else that would be in Etharas' world HAHAH
Jen: lol Nice
Jenna: I heard she's thinking about writing Book 2 for National Novel Writer's Month, so I'm happy
Letarri: Anastasia is writing Book 2 of our story too. I'm really nervous about it.
Jenna: Yeah, I'm nervous too, but at least she's continuing the story!
Jenna: After what? Like 6 months of editing?
Brigette: Well I got my dress. What now? *stares into space*
Rosyani: They are doing their secret talk again.....
Letarri: Usually spells trouble for us.
Jenna: I would say ice cream or coffee time, but um. I don't eat food anymore
Brigette: Oh damn it, what if we get carried away and I bite him?!?!?!
Brigette: You know ... *smiles and points at teeth*
Anastasia: Umm, what could make you get carried away like THAT?
Brigette: *Looks at Anastasia* After dinner ... if he wants to, ah, do something
Anastasia: But you’ve been a vamp for a while though right?
Rosyani: Do something?
Anastasia: *giggles* Rosyani, You don't want to know.
Rosyani: Oh THAT. *blushes*
Brigette: *giggles* I'm wouldn't drain him or anything
Anastasia: I am suddenly afraid. I mean, I can't have Etharas the vampy fae in my head.
Brigette: But the bite might hurt and might freak him out
Anastasia, Letarri, and Rosyani: *LAUGH*
Brigette: What? He's not a vampire, he might think I'm crazy
Anastasia: It would definitely NOT freak him out.
Brigette: Yeah, right.
Anastasia: We are talking about Etharas here, okay? He's a freak and will try anything once - maybe twice.
Letarri: And he knows you’re a vampire too. It won't be a shock to him.
Brigette: I wonder what faery blood taste like ...
Rosyani: Sugary sweet with a bit of metallic to it.
Anastasia: Wait!? How do you know that?
Brigette: It's not just that though it's ... well ... when a male and female vampire do it, it's...
Jen: Yeah, Rosyani?
Jenna: *leans in with interest*
Rosyani: What? You've never tasted your own blood before? I mean, when I was stoned I was covered in it remember? And then there was a beast attack…kind of hard not to taste it.
Jen: Right. I think you take a swig from your necklace when no one's looking LOL
Anastasia: *gasp too*
Jen: Hahahaha. I'm just kidding
Anastasia: When a male and female vamp do it, it's what Brig?
Jenna: Yeah, that's what I want to know!
Brigette: Well ... it's very erotic. It can be embarrassing sometimes ... for the guy.
Anastasia: We are still talking about Etharas right?
Brigette: Well see that's the thing, I don't know how it would affect a faery. He might like it, he might not, he might turn into a ... vampire.
Jen: Ah ... Brigette ... you could try NOT biting Etharas, how 'bout that?
Anastasia: I was going to say that, but didn't want to offend anyone LOL
Brigette: *shakes her head* Someone has to come with me ... Lettari?
Letarri: HA No thanks.
Brigette: Please? You have to make sure we don't go further than dinner!
Letarri: Having me around will not make that difference. Trust me.
Brigette: You can bring Chakor. It will be a double date.
Jen: Brig, I think that would be a disaster.
Letarri: Really. Chakor and Etharas HATE each other.
Anastasia: Seriously, it would ruin the whole date.
Brigette: Well ... how about Rosyani and Drache?
Rosyani: Oh no. Do not drag me into this. I do not wish to be a chaperone. I have enough problems with dates...and other things.
Jen: Rosy, you're married. How do you have problems with dates??
Brigette: Oh come on, Rosyani! I'm sure Drache would love to see you all dolled up for him.
Jenna: *mumbles* Maybe I can go?
Rosyani: Well, it is not the date part per se Jen. It's the 'afterwards'....I am sure he would too, but...
Brigette: You don't have to be a chaperone, just come hang out as friends ... and make sure I don't leave with Etharas. That's all.
Rosyani: Well Jenna volunteered. So, why do you not take her along?
Jenna: I guess Jesu wouldn't want to...
Brigette: Um ...
Anastasia: Why not?
Jen: *whispers to Anastasia* same reason why Letarri and Chakor would be a bad idea.
Jenna: *shrug* I don't think he likes me like that.
Anastasia: Well then just go as friends to chaperone -- your other friend. Or something
Jenna: He'd probably agree just cause he's so polite but...
Brigette: *makes a face* Might be better to risk Etharas becoming a vampire...
Anastasia: Umm, no. It wouldn't. Etharas cannot become a vampire
Brigette: Than I shouldn't be alone with him. All the guys I've been with have been vamps, so I didn't have to worry about biting
Anastasia: So difficult!
Jen: Oy! Jenna, just go with them. I'll tell Jesu if you want me too.
Jenna: *bounces excitedly* Oh Letarri, you have to come too!
Jenna: It's more fun with more people!
Letarri: Chakor would not want to go. I think that would be too much weird tension between Chakor and Etharas.
Jen: And it wouldn’t be any tension between Jenna and Brigette?
Letarri: Why add to it?
Brigette: *shuffles nervously*
Jen: Good point
Jenna: I want to go though! This is only time I get out of your head.
Anastasia: Is it really that bad for you?
Anastasia: Awww. I’d live in your head Jen.
Jenna: Yeah right. Try living with a bunch of thousand-year-old vampires. Pssh
Rosyani: What about faeries and elves that number in the 50's? As in 50 different people in Anastasia's head?
Jenna: Everything is always 'Blood this' and 'blood that'.
Anastasia: Aww poor Jenna.
Jenna: *mocking Jesu's voice* 'you have to learn to defend yourself because danger is everywhere'
Rosyani: He's right.
Jenna: Oh please, not you too!
Jen: Anastasia, I think we should bring the guys in here. ;)
Rosyani: What? You should learn to protect yourself - as a woman. It is important. My brother made sure all of us knew how to defend ourselves in a physical fight.
Brigette: I agree with Rosyani.
Anastasia: Right now? Really? Why?
Jen: Well Jesu is dieing to come in here and tell Jenna he wants to take her to dinner. LOL
Anastasia: AWWWW okay
Brigette: He does?
Drache:*kisses Rosyani's cheek* Hello, love.
Jesu: *enters the room*
Rosyani: *blushes and giggles*
Jenna: *blushes and freezes*
Chakor: Hello everyone. *kisses Letarri's cheek* And hello to you.
Jesu: *Takes Jenna's hand and gets on one knee* Jenna, I would be honored to escort you to dinner
Letarri: If you say no to that, we might have to fight.
Jenna: *blushes* Ok.
Brigette: *looks away and bites her lip*
Jesu: *grins* Good.
Anastasia: *whispers to Jen* I don't think we thought all of this through really.....
Jen: *whispers back* I know. I forget they have their own minds and such
Chakor: *sigh* They are whispering again.
Jesu: *continues to hold Jenna's hand and grin* Who cares.
Chakor: So, what have you ladies been doing today?
Chakor: Sounds lovely.
Jenna: I helped her pick out a dress for her date with Etharas
Chakor: WHY would you be that mean to her?
Anastasia: *sigh* Chakor, really. He's not that bad.
Chakor: Setting her up with the likes of him.
Brigette: *laughs* I can handle him. *wink*
Chakor: *eye brows raise* Really? Well, then, by all means. *blinks*
Brigette: Honestly, I'm more worried about him.
Anastasia: As long as he doesn't turn into a vampy, there is nothing to worry about. I mean, I thought there was a special bite anyway that would turn someone? Or had to be blood sharing or something?
Jenna: *snorsts* I wish. A bite turns any human into a vampire, so long as they don't die from it
Anastasia: Well Etharas isn't a human so...
Jesu: But ... *looks at Brigette* ... I don't know what it does to faeries.
Etharas: Would it make me more powerful so I can beat Chakor?
Anastasia: *rolls eyes* OH! And you weren't supposed to be here ANYWAY mister.
Brigette: *Shys away* Don't look at me like that.
Jen: Yeah um ... Hi Etharas lol
Etharas: Hello Jen. *wink*
Brigette: He knows what I am and he asked ME.
Jesu: *glares a little*
Etharas: *looks bored*
Brigette: Whatever. *sits down and crosses her legs*
Anastasia: Why did you want to bring the guys in here again? LOL
Jen: Um ... because Jesu wanted to take Jenna to dinner?
Anastasia: LOL I know, just being sarcastic :P
Jen: I know :P
Anastasia: I mean, did you FEEL the temperature degree drop?!
Drache:*shakes head* I'm so glad I'm married.
Jen: Yeah. I mean, heck, they are all silent and staring each other down now
Anastasia: Ahh silence. It's a rare thing to NOT hear voices in my head. Kind of freaking me out.
Jesu: Jenna, I could buy you something while we are still in the store?
Jenna: Um ... like what?
Anastasia: Oh yea! Jenna needs clothes now too
Jesu: Excellent. Clothes it is. Go. Pick out anything you like.
Jenna: *blushing* Ah ... okay
Chakor: Making us look bad! Letarri would you like anything?
Letarri: *giggles* No thanks.
Chakor: Are you sure? You can get anything you like.
Letarri: *blush* No, really. I'm fine.
Brigette: *seethes in her seat and fidgets with the her bag*
Etharas: *flops down next to Brigette and glares at Chakor's back*
Brigette: *grumbles in German to herself*
Drache:*look around at the group then laughs* Seriously glad I'm married. Come on, love. Let's leave before things turn ugly.
Rosyani: *giggles* Okay. So long! See you later!
*Drache and Rosyani walk away*
Jen: Aww. Okay, by Rosy and Drache
Jenna: Bye *waves*
Jesu: *follows Jenna around the store*
Etharas: I know.
Brigette: That could have been .... whatever. It's not.
Etharas: *sigh* I know.
Brigette: But ... It was, once. *sigh*
Etharas: Look, Brigette. I know that I'm not who you really want, but I would still enjoy taking you to dinner. If you want.
Anastasia: Aww Etharas! That was actually sweet!
Brigette: *blushes* I'm sorry. I shouldn't be acting like this. *takes a deep breath to calm down* I would love to go to dinner with you.
Brigette: *glances at the bag and bites her lip*
Etharas: Did you find something you like?
Brigette: *laughs* well I found something the girls like on me.
Etharas: But do YOU like it? Because if you don't, why did you buy it?
Brigette: *shrug* They said you would like it.
Etharas: *raise eyebrows* Really? *glances at Letarri with creased eyebrows*
Brigette: *laughs* Yeah. What?
Etharas: *deep breath* Well, I'm sure I will then. Nothing. Focus on the present right? Not the past.
Brigette: *kicks the floor with her boot* Yeah. The present.
Anastasia: *whispers to Jen* He's being SOO sweet!
Jen: *whispers to Anastasia* I know! They are so cute together :)
Etharas: How should I dress to match? Is it formal or semi formal? Casual?
Brigette: *blinks* Semi, I guess
Etharas: *nods* I'm sure Anastasia will pick out something for me. *rolls eyes*
Brigette: I hope you don't mind going to a vampire-owned restaurant
Etharas: No, I don't mind.
Jen: *whisperes to you*This is making me want to write a short story about them!*
Anastasia: *whispers back* I know right!?
Jenna: *comes running out of the store* Check out these diamond earrings Jesu bought me!!
Brigette: *winces* Er ... yeah ... nice.
Etharas: *pats the top of Brigettes hand*
Jenna: *runs back into the store*
Brigette: You wanna get out of here?
Etharas: Definitely. Where we going?
Brigette: Anywhere. Walk me back to Jen's head. I don't care.
Etharas: *chuckle* My pleasure. *holds arm out to Brigette*
Brigette: *smiles and takes Etharas's hand*
