the best way to spread holiday cheer  
WHO: Everyone participating in the holiday album! Could that mean YOU?
WHERE: The Xavier Institute Auditorium
WHEN: Nov 26, 27, and December 3, 4
WARNINGS: None I know of?
SUMMARY: Hank's making a holiday album and getting as many people to help as he can.
FORMAT: Start up a thread and mingle around! Make sure to specify when you're staging your thread, whether a specific day or just FIRST WEEKEND and SECOND WEEKEND.

The Auditorium had the distinction of being perhaps the most malleable room in the facility aside from the Danger Room. The chairs were cleared for a few rows where some tables with snacks and water were set up, though should the sessions require meals, they would be break to the cafeteria. The stage was set up with a loft for a choir, and microphones and monitors and wires everywhere, leading up into the sound booth, where hank had only made a bigger mess of wires and equipment.

It was time to make some magic happen.
 
 
 
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I'll have to think about this.
SECOND WEEKEND, OPEN

[He hadn't wanted to come out today, it had been a terrible week and he'd only made it worse for some people, but there was work to be done now. He'll be mainly trying to hide in the sound booth, providing instructions every now and then, but obviously this isn't a job that can be done from a remote location.

Getting him to come out to elaborate on anything or help someone match the right key won't be too large a chore.

Scathach.: Twiddle ∞ It wasn't me I swear.spadassin on December 3rd, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
[Guess who has found him all cooped up and does not approve. This girl. She's snuck her way into the booth, and is standing in the doorway, watching him. She clears her throat after a few moments:]

Hello, Hank.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Hmm?bluepurrymuffin on December 4th, 2011 05:25 am (UTC)
[He glances up from the panel, sees her, and sits up from the slump he'd had rather quickly.]

Oh, sorry Scatty, I was miles away.
Scathach.: Danger ∞ Yes I know you can see my tits.spadassin on December 5th, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC)
[A thin smile makes its way to her lips.]

I can tell. What's on your mind?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Always hidden depths to consider...bluepurrymuffin on December 5th, 2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
[He sighs and tries his his best to force a smile.]

Just...a long week, really. [Well, that's strangely terse of him!]
Scathach.: Close ∞ Personal space is overrated.spadassin on December 7th, 2011 07:04 pm (UTC)
[She noticed :|]

Would you like to--talk about it?

[The hesitation was so minute that he may not have noticed it.]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: Long days only get longer it seems.bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2011 05:06 pm (UTC)
[He leans back in his chair and gives her a glance.]

I don't know. It's something of a conflict between one's capabilities and one's beliefs, and when one suddenly drowns out the other with no chance of a fight, without even your say in the matter.

Momiji Sohma: I am most excitedwhatmuttiforgot on December 5th, 2011 06:44 am (UTC)
[Hey there favorite furry professor. Momiji does not particularly like your idea of not being social and is showing his opinion by beating on the booth door with more force than you'd expect out of someone who keeps sitting out on gym class.]
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on December 5th, 2011 09:35 am (UTC)
[Hank slowly makes his way to the door, opens it, and leans against the jam</em> ]

Anything I can assist you with, Momiji?
Momiji Sohma: Haruwhatmuttiforgot on December 6th, 2011 05:09 am (UTC)
[Ignores the question completely.]

Why are you all alone in here? It would be much more fun if you were out there with the rest of us.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I'd prefer not to talk about it.bluepurrymuffin on December 6th, 2011 09:13 am (UTC)
[He fishes for a quick, weak deflection.]

Oh, you know, just a lot to be done. Overseeing the recording, balancing the sound levels, all of that.
Momiji Sohma: I'm really surprisedwhatmuttiforgot on December 9th, 2011 04:15 am (UTC)
Can't you take a break from that stuff for a while?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: What was I thinking?bluepurrymuffin on December 9th, 2011 07:12 am (UTC)
Well, it's...what I'm here for, but if you need my attention elsewhere, I can oblige.
Kurt Wagner: to approach the matter.
LATE TO THIS GAME like a boss
in_likeflynn on December 6th, 2011 02:02 pm (UTC)
[ Hi, Hank. It's another of your We Love You Hank, Be Social Brigade. Kurt's tactic, you ask?

BAMF right into the situation outta nowhere with the sheet music for "Here We Come A-wassailing." ]


Henry! Pronounce this for me?
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: I must take this data down immediately.bluepurrymuffin on December 7th, 2011 07:08 am (UTC)
Hmm? [He lifts his head over chin from his hand to give the sheet a glance.]

Ah, that should be wassailing. Not exactly like a Southern dialect's mispronunciation of "wrestling", but near enough, I suppose.

[See, look, a joke. Clearly everything's fine here.]
Kurt Wagner: Riiiight.in_likeflynn on December 7th, 2011 10:34 am (UTC)
I see.

[ Not that he knows that much about the Southern dialect. And... Southern American? He presumes, anyway, and is determined to carry on this ridiculous conversation while he checks to make sure everything's cool. Something like that.

So. How would Rogue say it? ]


Wrassling? [ It's probably horrendously obvious that he's being lazy, here. ] Ach. Wassailing, wahsell... Wassailing. What a funny word.
Dr. Henry Phillip McCoy: So it would seem.bluepurrymuffin on December 8th, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
It's from Old Norse, so it perhaps even has Germanic roots.

[Yeah it's pretty obvious.]

Certainly a word I'd imagine you'd be fond of in the coming season, given its meaning.
Kurt Wagner: Oh really~?in_likeflynn on December 9th, 2011 03:58 pm (UTC)
Well, yes, the spirit of it is nice enough. And when else can one use 'wassailing' in a sentence?

[ He maintains: it seems like a silly word in spite of being pleasant in definition. It's... Quirky.

Anyway. This whole thing. ]


How is it going?

Roxanne Ritchi: Reporting
First Weekend, open
pluckyreporter on December 3rd, 2011 07:37 pm (UTC)
[Roxanne is there, with a couple of her her recording brainbots and a smile. She'll help, she'll record, she'll even sing with the others. She'll also ask lots of questions of anyone who is there about the event, holidays in the City, and how they feel about what they're doing and so forth.]
Curtis Doyle || Freedom Ring: Surprisefree_dumb_ring on December 3rd, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
[Just like he said he would be, Freedom Ring is there as well. He's picked out a spot and is idly strumming while waiting for when he's needed. When he notices the brainbots, the reality altering hero just gives them a strange look.]

What the...
Roxanne Ritchi: Engagedpluckyreporter on December 3rd, 2011 10:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, don't mind them. They don't bite.

[SHE LIES it has BEAR TRAPS FOR JAWS.]

They're just my, ah, camera crew.
Curtis Doyle || Freedom Ring: Flying Huhfree_dumb_ring on December 3rd, 2011 10:35 pm (UTC)
[He glances towards Roxanne then points at the bots.]

With a mouth like that?

Wait...camera crew?
Roxanne Ritchi: Gentle Smilepluckyreporter on December 3rd, 2011 10:57 pm (UTC)
Oh yes. I'm Roxanne Ritchi. We're doing a little featurette to go with the album. Little Making-Of thing.
Curtis Doyle || Freedom Ringfree_dumb_ring on December 3rd, 2011 11:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, you're a reporter! [He grins.]

I'm Freedom Ring. Phenomenally powerful superhero and guitar player for this album. [He pats his guitar.]
Roxanne Ritchi: Are You Serious?pluckyreporter on December 3rd, 2011 11:24 pm (UTC)
I am! My fame proceeds me, I guess. [It totally doesn't, but she's okay with it.] Nice to meet you, Freedom.
