All right.

You have my utmost attention.

Hardly. Amusing.

At Base - "Security Measures"

*As the clock ticks closer and closer to midnight, the light blue, barely visible sheen that has been covering the base begins to crackle, slowly fading as the power of Saint Nicholas and the North Pole fades.

Jolly and her dozen elves are working hastily outside of the base - if anyone were to run into them, they'd look awfully suspicious, wearing all black and glancing furitively around every few moments, surrounding a large, golden power generator of some sort. They aren't, of course, doing anything wrong.

The clocks around the base chime midnight, and the blue sheen fades out --

-- Only to be replaced by a dimmer, greenish light as a new barrier fills the air.

It's not as good as the original, but it should hold up until Jolly can get the rest of it set up, and she and her elves step back.

She calls Santa on her walkie talkie, informing the big S that she'll be staying on base for a while longer, until everything is set up, and then she and the elves return for another round of eggnog and some raucous music.

The new barrier may last one more month - or just one more night - but it'll have to do for now.*

~After Christmas~

//INITIATED RECORDED MESSAGE "AFTER CHRISTMAS"
....INITIATED

"Merry Christmas, one and all. I hope you are all enjoying your gifts! I did my best to fulfill all the lists, but it was a bit hard with such a tight schedule.

Also, I hope that Jolly is helping you all at base. Feel free to... er... talk to her about anything you want to. She should be available to talk at any point, and I've given her access to the journal - as you no doubt have noticed - so feel free to leave comments on the journal for her. She'll get them.

Once again, Merry Christmas!"

~GIFTS FOR ALL~

It’s that time of year again. Carols by candlelight; jingle bells; sleighrides through winter wonderlands. Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, Pere Noel - whatever name he decides to go by - he loves it all. This year is really just the same as every other year...

Well, except for the fact that he has one more major stop on his route than normal.

Santa marches down the hallway with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face, being greeted by and greeting others with a hearty laugh and a, “Merry Christmas!” The sleigh is waiting for him, complete with eight reindeer, and his elves are all waiting for his annual takeoff. Jolly isn’t present - but he knows exactly where she is, and really wishes her the best of luck. (And the Transformers. Man, is he glad to get her away from the workbench for a while!) The other elves, though, are waiting and ready with all his riding gear.

He accepts the flight goggles, heavily-lined winter’s jacket, and hat without question, pulling all his riding gear on and smiling at the elves all around as they cheer. Even after some few hundred years of this, no one here has gotten tired of it.

The sleigh is filled and his team is ready to go, so he spares only a few short words of pre-run gratitude - the real thanks will come later, when Santa is back and ready for some eggnog and holiday cheer elf style. He then climbs up into the sleigh, grabbing the reigns and pulling his goggles down over his eyes. He grins widely, clears his throat, and then - just as every year before, and every year after - he calls:

“Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen -
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

The sleigh rises without a hitch and they take to the night, amid cheers from the elves and jingling Christmas bells. Santa sets his sights on his first stop in the night, and he and his reindeer veer, heading straight for the biggest stop of his life: the Transformers base.

Reaching the base is easy. Getting in is easy as well - after all, the current security is lacking, and besides, this is his day. He can go fairly near everywhere on Christmas. However, he takes certain precautions... He’s not sure if the Transformers realize that the song is true, but he can indeed see when others are sleeping, and he does indeed know when they’re awake... And right now? Quite a few are awake. Awake, and not in the mood to be disturbed.

So, in order to give everyone what they really want, he sets charms on the gifts he brings, making it so that the only people who can pick them up in the morning are those they’re meant to be for. It’s a nice charm, and works well with rival siblings who want each other’s toys - he assumes that the Transformers are only so much better than that.

Santa also takes the time to leave all of the mechs - every last one - three things: a large pile of energon that has been excruciatingly produced to taste almost exactly, if not completely, like eggnog spiced with rum; a tracking collar; and any one of several stuffed animals - all mech proportionate.

On his way from the base, Santa drops off a few more things:

A bunch of the newest, best releases for the PS2 and Wii for Glenn (with an accompanying Wii)

A PS3 for Logan, with every semi-decent game available;

A Wii for Miles, with a dozen games;

And finally... he stops off at last for some more milk and cookies, depositing the following to Jacqueline Parker and her daughter:
-A new, full set of gardening supplies
-The number of an elf specialist, who might help with the gardening duties
-A three foot plush waterhorse
-A fluffy kitten

And then, still with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face, Santa calls out to his reindeer to continue on their nightly journey, adding with a merry laugh:

Merry Christmas to Cybertron, and to all a good night!

Physical Entry 1

This is Jolly, stepping in for Saint Nicholas. At this moment, the fat man Kris Kringle is busy fixing himself and the sleigh and the bags, and the stupid reindeer, and the missus up for Christmas deliveries. He'll be unavailable until after the 25th.

I, however, am sorry happy to say that I'm currently bunked out in the base's "human" quarters with my team of elves. If you see any of them wandering around, please refrain from squishing them, as they're rather hard to train. That, and we're not humans, so don't treat us as such. I'll be staying for at least another few days, to help fix your nonexistent security out around the base, so don't hesitate to come to me with questions or requests. No, we will not sing carols for you. No, we are not supposed to be four feet high. Five-two should be short enough.

Now then...

Those of you who have made Christmas lists will most probably get what you want, barring the restriction that you were on the Naughty list. If you made a request, it's very simple from here on out:

Go to sleep early. Sleep all night. (Preferably) Leave cookies and milk out. Tip: go for home-baked goods; the fat man doesn't particularly like store-bought. If you want to really get on the good side of him, leave some carrots (or grain) out for the reindeer. Comet is a glutton, so it's always good to have some stuff on hand in case he ate it all.

It's a very simple process, and then, when you wake up on the 25th - presents. Nice system, isn't it?

So, until further notice, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me, but otherwise... just stay out of my workers' ways.

((OOC Note: Western US Coast times apply, for Santa's delivery. If you haven't given Santa a list, and your character wants something, I suggest hurrying to do so!))

It would be nice to see if we can do anything to help with base operations - both security and basic upkeep. I'll be around. A private communications line has been set up for anyone who needs to speak to me - it should be the only non-Transformer communications line on base. Mistlevine out."



((OOC: The AIM name for Santa and Jolly - Jolly being the one to use it for now - is "is coming 2 town". Feel free to drop me a line! Also, Sunstreaker-mun? I wasn't sure what you wanted to do about Sunstreaker, so I left him out of the retrieval. If you want him to have been picked up, I'll just edit him into this post - however anything goes, it's alright with me.))

If it wouldn't be too much trouble, we here at the North Pole would like to review the security measures being implemented, to see how we might be able to help. Think of it as... a Christmas present from me to you all, as opposed to what Saint Nicholas is working on at the moment. If this isn't possible, please let me know ahead of time, and I'll arrange for a briefer drop-off than I'm already planning.

Jolly out."
