Alcohol? Noooope.

Post by Morgan Landry on 8/22/2014, 5:42 pm


Maddy had a soft spot for liquors and fruits with eau-de-vie. She loved to prepare them, put them somewhere where light wouldn't find them, stir them up from time to time... At home she had a huge cupboard made out of fragrant oak wood, the doors set with stained glass, in which she put her self-made liquors in beautiful flasks, between sirups and scented honey, and she just longed to be there right now. Nothing was easier, really, than preparing them. The ingredients were natural, the fruits easy to pick or buy. She loved to invent new liquors, let them age slowly, watch the exquisite colors they took month after month.. If she hadn't decided to become an actress, Maddy would've taken up a career as wine producer. What she loved was when her mother came back from her trips with beautiful colored glass bottles from Spain or Greece, or corks made out of porcelain, Murano glass or ivory. Adding more to her collections was always such a pleasure!
Right now, though, the young daughter of Dionysus was sitting on her cabin's windowsill, far from her bottles and beloved cordials, the speakers inside the building playing medium loud pop music. She'd kill for a limoncello right now.
Instead, she opened the can of Coca light she had bought one drachma from the Hermes's and drank a sip. The window she was sitting in was surrounded by vine grapes of different sorts: Muscat, Alligoté, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Champagne.. Maddy could turn them all into wine if she wanted. But Chiron wouldn't appreciate, she could get into trouble for bringing alcohol into Camp Half-Blood.... Or could she?
She had quite stopped caring by now, she needed alcohol. Last month, she had taken some strawberries from the fields, cut them into halves, placed them in a clean glass jar and filled it with cognac so she could take real Camp Half-Blood liquor home. It should be good by now.
Tiptoeing to her trunk, she opened the wooden lid, rummaged around and pulled the jar out. The fruits had macerated, taking a beautiful reddish-amber-brown color; she slid a spoon into the liquid and put it into her mouth, closing her eyes. The cognac in the liqueur warmed her throat in a sudden burst of flavor and aftertaste, dazing her for a second. Quickly, she closed the jar and put it back in. Wait, no, just another spoonful - theeeere- now she could put it away.

Happiness is like the sun shining on your face after a thunderstorm.


Jasmine had always loved this time of day. It wan't night nor day, dawn nor dusk, but at that point where day is saying, "Almost time for my break!" When she was in New York, she had more enjoyed the night time, when the city was more alive with different people, every building lit up like a christmas tree. Yes, those were the best paintings and drawings she had ever made. In fact, she was drawing now. With her back against the front of her cabin, she had a lovely view of the people still out. An Apollo group was singing and playing guitar in front of their cabin, the Aphrodite kids that weren't as superficial were out talking with one another, and mostly everyone else was either talking with someone or doing something independently. Currently, the daughter of Demeter was taking her time drawing the musicians. They took the longest time, as she didn't know where exactly to put their fingers on their instrument. Ah well, the more time you put into a drawing just makes it that much better.

Jasmine decided that perhaps now that she had all of the people outlined, perhaps she should start on the cabins. One cabin in particular had a girl in the window. Odd. While the pastel haired girl was trying to draw her, the girl in the window got up. What was she to do now! She liked the way it had looked, reminding anyone who would look at the photo that not everyone was out. Jasmine, who was freaking out a little bit, stood from her place against the wall, put down her pad and pencil, and walked over to the Dinoysus cabin and knocked on the door.

Maddy jerked around. A young teen girl (not one of her siblings) walked in after having knocked on the door, carrying drawing material under her arm. She had light coffee colored skin and multicolored hair, in the nuances of white, pink, blue and lilac. Maddy found the effect really aesthetic.

"Hey," she said. "You're Jasmine, right?"

Another Demeter kid. They weren't a lot in their cabin, but Maddy got along really well with most of them.

"What can I help you with?"

Jasmine smiled and nodded. "Yea, I'm Jasmine," she said. "I saw you sitting in the window, that one just there?" She pointed to it, before turning her attention back to the daughter of Dinoysus. "And I had wanted to draw you sitting there in my picture, but you stood up... I was just wondering if it would be too much trouble to ask you to sit there for a little while?" Jasmine smiled lightly at the girl.
