May we all have our hopes, our will to try  
WHO:  Bobbi, invited guests, uninvited guests, party crashers, etc.
WHERE:  The Avengers Mansion
WHEN:  December 31st, ten pm and beyond
WARNINGS:  I suspect there will be drunkenness and confrontations.  I'll edit as needed.
SUMMARY:  Avengers New Year's Party/shenanigans
FORMAT: Whatever you like.  This will be broken down into hour intervals starting at 10pm and ending at 2am.  Start your own threads and tag around!  Get into arguments/fights!  Confront Bobbi for going insane and inviting known villains to her party!  Have a rap battle!  Kiss someone at midnight!  Eat all the guacamole, it's all good!  Also, backtagging is welcome, so feel free to hit this up next week if you get the urge.


After the insanity in Times Square the day before, Bobbi wasn't even sure that going forward with the New Year's Eve party would be a good idea.  It had been a disaster, lives had been lost, she was agitated and angry, and the idea of celebrating the new year seemed out of place and ill-timed.  But she'd already put a lot of work into organizing the damn thing.  Before she'd gone out to get beat up and bruised, she'd been in the kitchen readying food and setting up for the stupid party.  Plus, all the invitations were out.  Might as well go through with it, even if she wasn't in the greatest mood to celebrate.

She'd set up a pretty decent spread in the dining room.  There were some of the usual suspects; champagne, fruit punch, chocolate covered fruit, a New Year's cake baked by Angelica, along with a few other surprise menu items, like ceviche, fried Oreos, fried Mozzerella, and of course, Bobbi's famous guacamole

She decorated the main living room with crepe paper and balloons, and she's got a stereo set up.  And right next to the champagne was a collection of very festive hats.  They seemed like a fun idea last week when she picked them out, but Bobbi certainly wouldn't blame anyone for not wanting to deal with them.

Now the only thing left to do was wait for people to show up.

Derpderpderp now might be a good time for a rap battle or a dance off. Or maybe a confrontation in the kitchen over WTF IS THIS PARTY EVEN.
MAX DILLON [ ELECTRO ]: coast is clearelectrouble on January 1st, 2011 02:02 am (UTC)
[ Fashionably late as is his style, Electro shows up around 11:30 out of costume (shockingly), wearing a brown turtleneck and a rubber jacket as he promised. Who cares if he looks out of place? That was gonna happen anyway with the bald head and the giant starfish tattoo on his face.

He's just gonna stand by the stereo for now and maybe sneakily zap it to a different song, frowning at everyone. Yes even you. ]
incywincyhero: spidey: leap into the unknownincywincyhero on January 1st, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
Spidey is wandering around the room when he catches the faint but familiar tang of ozone, at the same time as it registers that the music just changed mid-chorus. Oh, no. Not here, not the day after --

He vaults over the nearest partiers, probably much to their surprise, and lands in front of Electro, fists cocked. "Electro, I don't know what you're doing here, but --"
MAX DILLON [ ELECTRO ]: I like those oddselectrouble on January 1st, 2011 03:04 am (UTC)
"Hey. Hey," Electro sneers, but puts one hand up. "Where's the fire? Not over here. Though it could be."

For emphasis, he snaps his fingers, producing a spark when they meet. His grin stays in place and he reaches into his jacket to pull out a piece of paper.

"I got an invitation to be here, Spidey. Look for yourself."
incywincyhero: spidey: this is my thinky faceincywincyhero on January 1st, 2011 03:20 am (UTC)
Spidey leans over and grabs the invitation so he can take a closer look. After a second's scan he snorts in disgust, flicking it back at Electro. "Gimme a break, you could have grabbed it off of anyone. You expect me to believe Mockingbird would've invited you?"

Lay the scorn on a little thicker, Spidey. Max might not've got the message.

Parker Robbins: pic#99045904hoodalumnus on January 1st, 2011 03:11 am (UTC)
The second Parker caught sight of his lollygagging pal -- an hour and a half late, who does that? -- he went invisible. His powers were independent of his cloak now, especially in the City, and the risk of announcing that paled in comparison to screwing with Max Dillon. Slinking past guest, sidling up to Max, Parker whispered in his ear.

"You look like the lovechild between a professor and a BDSM tube sock."
MAX DILLON [ ELECTRO ]: watch it!electrouble on January 1st, 2011 03:17 am (UTC)
"Gah!"

Electro jolted, surprised, turning to where he'd heard the voice come from. He recognized it, of course: his friend was the main reason he was at this dumb party in the first place.

"Parker," he hissed. "You fucking startled me."
Parker Robbins: pic#105401542hoodalumnus on January 1st, 2011 03:26 am (UTC)
"Glad to see my efforts bear fruit. Would hate it if you saw this coming a mile away," he said between chuckles. Still invisible, Parker played with the stereo dial, switching radio stations snappily. He jumped from jazz to pop to electronica and finally found peace with classic rock.

Highway to Hell. Trauma would be oh so proud.

"So. You look like a thirteen year old at homecoming, what's the matter?"

児王 織 | Ggio Vega: kitty!ridethetiger on January 1st, 2011 02:21 am (UTC)
Ggio thinks this is just another party in a long string of parties since 'Holloween', and arrives a little later straight from the party at El Calabozo. He's in good spirits, if a touch nervous; despite working at the club, he doesn't really know how to party, and while the mansion is a more intimate setting, the arrancar's a little uneasy about being around strangers.

As such, he tries not to stand out too much, though he probably does regardless since he looks like a teenager and has that Smilodon skull on his head. He's looking around for Bobbi - but is heavily distracted by the crepe streamers, fighting the urge to swat at them.
Bobbi Morse || Mockingbird: low cutmockingbirdie on January 1st, 2011 02:34 am (UTC)
"You're a sight for sore eyes, honey."

And Bobbi means it, too. After all the awkwardness unfolding all around them, she's especially glad to see someone who isn't from back home and isn't rearing to start an epic battle in the middle of the living room. She smiles warmly, ushering him over toward the punchbowl.

"I'm so glad you could make it."
児王 織 | Ggio Vega: that's real cute; ain't no thangridethetiger on January 1st, 2011 05:15 am (UTC)
"Hey, Bobbi."

He returns her smile on the way towards the punchbowl, but with her in front of him it was hard to ignore the tension in the air. It was a bit exciting for him, honestly, always ready for a fight, but he knows this wasn't supposed to be the time or place for that.

"Is everything all right?" he asks quietly, so they won't be overheard.
Bobbi Morse || Mockingbird: glaremockingbirdie on January 1st, 2011 05:21 am (UTC)
She scoops him a nice cup of punch, glancing over her shoulder at Electro in particular. There was nothing to be done about it now. She'd invited Electro, she'd wanted him to come, but she wasn't about to waste the entirety of the party worrying about it. Not when there were other guests to visit.

"Some of my friends disagree with my guest list." She shrugged, handing Ggio the cup. "They probably think I've lost my mind."

LUKE CAGE, BITCHES: just smile.lukefuckingcage on January 1st, 2011 03:09 am (UTC)
Luke wasn't wearing anything very formal, but it was nice enough to pass well at the party. He came with Danny and his date (he was frantically asking Danny all week if dates were mandatory). Nill was safe with a friend and Luke had the rest of the party to relax. He drank beer and ate food and watched the crowd for anyone familiar or suspicious.
Pietro Maximoff † Quicksilver: .skiddingoncemercurial on January 1st, 2011 05:54 am (UTC)
Angelica had suggested they mingle so not too long into the party, Pietro finds himself in the awkward predicament of mingling with no real interest in talking to anyone. Fortunately, he quickly spotted Luke, and of all the awkward conversations that could occur this evening, that does seem to have the least likelihood of ending in a screaming match.

"Luke -- How is your evening?" He skids up, taking care not to spill his drink as he stops.
LUKE CAGE, BITCHES: mmm noodles.lukefuckingcage on January 1st, 2011 08:04 am (UTC)
Suddenly to his side, there was Pietro with a drink in his hand. He hadn't had much experience being on a team with a speedster, so he was a big surprised to see him suddenly there and talking.

He feigned coolness and replied, "Like any other night except I got more beer. What's up with you?"

James Rogers: Just walk awaycarrytheshield on January 1st, 2011 07:16 am (UTC)
James is dressed mostly in blue, though he has his favorite red boots on. He's enjoying the party so far, and still has his 'happy new years' hat on.

He's not quite sure who this guy is, but he matches a description James was given, so he makes his way over. Soda in one hand and a handful of fried oreos in the other.
LUKE CAGE, BITCHES: just tell me where she is.lukefuckingcage on January 1st, 2011 08:05 am (UTC)
Luke barely paid attention to the Network as he was either working or being a guardian to Nill or beating up Osborn's Avengers and Thunderbolts. So, he did not recognize James when he saddled up next to him though there was an eery familiarity about the boy that he could not place.

"You lost?" He asked sincerely.

Misty Knightlolroboarm on January 4th, 2011 04:58 am (UTC)
"Don't you look nice."

Misty has a glass of champagne for herself, and a glass for Luke. She knocked her elbow against his before passing it, grinning at him.
LUKE CAGE, BITCHES: it's a girl.lukefuckingcage on January 11th, 2011 03:34 am (UTC)
"Nothing special," Luke smirked, knocking her gently back. He took the glass from her and downed it. His metabolism was off the rocks. "How you doin' tonight?"

Zoidberg wanders over to the punchbowl eventually, staring at Lyra with wide, curious eyes. Bingo sits obediently at his feet, cocking her head to observe as well.

Logan turns up a little after 11, a bottle of Crown Royal in one hand. He takes a moment to scope the room -- usual crowd, probably going to end in some kind of fight or another -- before heading over to check out the food.

Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I'll have to think about this.bluepurrymuffin on January 2nd, 2011 10:07 pm (UTC)
Hank wanders in at 11:30p, fashionably late as always. He looks very tired from having been cooped up in a recording studio the last three days, and just sort of haunts the punchbowl, occasionally removing his glasses to rub his eyes.
