Okay, City, here's the thing. The newbies from my world have brought in something called pro-bending, and I want in. You need an earthbender, a firebender, and a waterbender, and I figure I can count on Char for the fire part. Sorry, Stutters, but I saw her first. Anyway, I'm recruiting someone with water powers. You don't have to call it bending, you just have to be good at it.

Come by the Jasmine Dragon if you're interested. If you can hold your own in a fight, you're in.

[ Yes, Toph. Show all these teenagers who are older than you. ]

[It’s once again accidental audio, probably from the pocket of someone's work apron. Charlie is carrying a large tray piled high with food from the Jasmine Dragon, not that this is visible, but the sounds around her might at least tell she’s carrying something heavy. And the occasional food-related words are heard. She’s selling Jasmine Dragon-related wares to the masses. And pie jars. Of course there are pie jars. Someone else has drinks and Charlie’s making her way down the line very slowly, selling pie jars and food when there’s interest.]

I need change. Rapunzel? Toph? You guys have change for this guy?

[Rapunzel, whose hands happen to be full of trays of tea, shakes her head.] Sorry, Charlie! My hands are full and I don’t think my dress has pockets. Toph, you got anything?

[ Toph reaches into her pocket and comes up with a fistful of coins. ] You tell me. [ She shrugs and hands them to Charlie. ]

[Charlie balances the tray on her hip and looks over, picking a few coins out and dropping others into Toph's hand.] One of these days, we’ll figure out a system for you and the money.

[She hands the man's change over with a grin and wishes him a nice day before moving on.] This is too fun.

[ Toph grins. ] It's definitely profitable. What are all these people standing in line for, anyway?

No idea, Toph. I’ve heard several different things. Cooking equipment. Comic books. Famous authors. [Charlie hands over another pie jar, slipping money into her pocket. That’s when she bumps the device and pulls it out to check it. A sigh and she switches to video. She’s happy. She also looks a bit tired and might have the beginnings of a sunburn across her nose but she keeps smiling. Time to pretend to be a professional.] Hi, everyone. If you’re at the convention center and are hungry, let Toph, Rapunzel and myself know. We’ll find you.

[Rapunzel pokes her head into the video, hands still full, and she grins, nodding.]

Yep! Just look for the girls in the green aprons with the trays of tea!

[She takes a quick look at Charlie, who does indeed appear to be getting a sunburn.]

Charlie, maybe you should take a break...your face is getting sort of red...

[Charlie turns to look at Rapunzel, slightly confused before crossing her eyes slightly to look at her nose.] Ah, god damn it. [And then she cringes, looking at Rapunzel.] Don’t say those words. They’re bad for business.

[Her tray is nearly empty and she looks at Rapunzel.] Do you have space for these or should I just sit pretty somewhere and hope people come to me? I’m good with either.

[Rapunzel shakes her head, holding out her arms.]

Nope, I got these. Let me go take care of these trays, and then I’ll see if I can’t do something about your face. You just go relax, I’ll manage the line. I’ve never seen so many people standing around in one place like this...

[Charlie turns the video off. ]

[ ooc: Feel free to action up this post if you'd like, your Jasmine Dragon ladies are at your service! ]

I don't know why everyone thinks being naked is such a big deal.

Just shut your eyes.

The Dragon's closed for the weekend because no one wants to work triple shifts. If you want to feed the turtleducks in the pond out back, that's fine, but they bite if you're not fast enough! [ Which Toph finds hilarious, of course. ]

--But now to the important stuff. Where is everybody? Twinkletoes, Snoozles, Sugar Queen? It's visit weekend and you missed the last one, so you owe me. I'm going to the park. Meet me there.

[ ooc: Toph is from end-of-series and is open to any kind of fourthwalling you like. Voice/video/action -- it's all good! ]
17 June 2012 @ 08:05 pm

--Won't go back with you! Not even if I have to stay in the City a million years! [ A pause. ] No, Father, I'm not a baby anymore! I've grown up, and you have to deal with it. Listen to me!

[ There's another long pause, and then-- ] I'm not helpless! I never was!

[ There's a large jarring sound of something hitting the wall, and then silence. ]
03 June 2012 @ 06:12 pm

--at's where this thing got to. Huh. Maybe I should clean up around here more. ...Nah.

Good timing, anyway. I'm looking for a new roommate. The last guy didn't stay very long, which totally wasn't because of me, just so you know. City sent him home, lucky guy. It's been too quiet here for a while now.

Oh, and someone recommend me a good noodle shop. Business is pretty good at the Jasmine Dragon right now, so I'll even buy you dinner.

Everyone won't stop talking about these pictures, so I thought I'd see what the whole fuss is about. [ She rolls her eyes. ] I need an accomplice to tell me if any of them are good for bribery purposes. Here goes.

[ She holds up several photos after each other. (Some are upside-down.) Unfortunately, most of them are pictures of kittens. Who knew that the City was so fond of its pets? ]

[ The other half, she's holding up backwards. Yep. Enjoy the blank backs. ]

Any luck? Or should I just go toss them on the bonfire?

[ ooc: If you want to say Toph has one of your photos, that's cool. She might not give it back, though. >3 ]

I need a new roommate. I'd just live in the park, but the stupid ticking gets too annoying after a while. Plus, it's nice to have someone around who can cook. Even if Twinkletoes only ever made vegetable stuff, it was still better than having to do it myself.

He went home, by the way. Aang. I could pretend to be surprised, but really, after the second day, I knew that's what it had to be.

So what's the record time for people staying here, anyway? A couple years? Maybe I'll make it.

[ Surprisingly, Toph's device is still working, despite sand abuse. She's sitting around near the camp when she feels some familiar footsteps... not particularly close. ] Wait... is that idiot really wandering around the desert on foot? [ She shouts: ] Hey, Tyr! Stay put. [ Who knows if he'll hear her. ]

Char, Bad Jokes, Runaway, Bitey... the rest of you I don't have nicknames for... I've got to go rescue somebody. I'll be back later.

[ ooc: Okay, so Toph is leaving her lovely caravan to find Tyr and a few other people... Rita, Riou, basically anyone who wants to join in! Feel free to have your own threads and threadjack and mingle, etc. She'll meet back up with the caravan group later. ]

[ The device is propped up by a stuffed tiger with a paw just barely in frame. The recording shows Toph, seated at a low table that might have been the coffee table before she got ahold of it. Now it has a frilly tablecloth on it, marked with chocolate stains.

Toph herself is quite a vision -- she's seated on a stool that you really can't see, because her full skirts cover it. Someone has dressed her up, something she would quite normally protest fervently. She's even using the table manners she'd learned at home, pouring some invisible tea for the stuffed mole seated next to her at the table. ]

I do hope you like it. It's my mother's blend.

[ Even her language is fancy. Weird.

Well, until she lifts a hand to her face and daintily picks her nose. ]

[ ooc: Backdated to this afternoon. Volunteers for whoever helped her dress are appreciated. Fanart credit. ]
27 January 2012 @ 08:20 pm

It's not like anyone I know is going to come here, anyway. Not again.

But if you want to talk, here I am.

[ ooc: Voice/video/action is all good -- you can find Toph at the teashop or in the square. Anything welcome! ]
22 January 2012 @ 02:12 pm
[voice/action for household]

[ The recording is quiet at first. If you listen closely, you can hear breathing. In her quest to figure out exactly what's going on, Toph has knocked the device to the floor and turned it on. ]

[ Her breath hitches. When she speaks, her voice is wobbly, like she's ready to cry. ] I don't know where I am. This isn't my house. Mom? Dad? Hello? [ A sniffle. ]

I never got to leave before.

[ With that enigmatic statement, the recording ends. ]

[ ooc: Responses may be slow as I'm writing a paper and they will come from [personal profile] littlestbender! ♥ ]
