    The sun has slowly suck passed the very tallest treetops surrounding the park, coating the sky in the colours of the dusk. Autumnal reds and oranges, reflecting off the turning leaves, some still stubbornly clinging to the branch, while others are caught in the chilled, bitter breeze of Autumn, dancing and scraping against the asphalt.


    Funderland's closed for the evening, there were no special attractions that would have the workers stay late. The amusement park has been abandoned by the mundane. Allowing for the Lost the freedom to gather, out of sight, within the heart of their Freehold.

    Mask:

    An alluring young beauty, Sonnie Wu is 5'2" and lean-bodied, with a light, nimble step and eyes that seem to say "Hey, you know what would be fun?" Her reddish-brown hair often seems slightly unkempt, and an amused smile regularly plays on her lips. Sonnie is usually dressed casually or for outdoor activity. She almost always wears a pair of red leather tabi boots.
    Mien:

    To the eyes of Fae, Sonnie's feet are like those of a monkey: Toes as long as fingers, with one on each foot being opposable like a thumb. A long monkey tail protrudes from the base of Sonnie's spine, covered in hair the same shade as her head. It appears to be prehensile, and often moves to react to her mood and dances about when she speaks, like people who "talk with their hands." Finally, her brown eyes turn golden.

    Sonnie was seated in the front cart of the Flying Dragon roller coaster. The ride was deactivated, of course, the carts resting at the boarding point. The monkey girl, dressed in blue jeans, a green flannel shirt over a black tee, and a green beanie on her head, was lounging in the cart with her feet up. She had a plastic bag of leftover Halloween candy on her lap, from which she steadily munched various treats, as she watched a movie on her smartphone. From the sound of the audio, it was an action movie, with lots of gunfire and explosions and witty one-liners.

    Snoring in the cart behind her was an ugly mutt of a dog, with legs too gangly for his torso shape, a corkscrew tail, ears that looked wrong for his head, and a face only a mother could love. A leash was loosely held by Sonnie's tail.

    The Dread Lord of Autumn emerged from the Hollow and out of Edna's, wandering through the chill evening. A little tidying and rearranging, but it was all worthwhile.

    He strolled happily through Funderland, mantle winds twisting, enjoying the actual breeze an leaves that intermingled with his own.

    Who knew who might be about on that evening?

    Softly shimmering gold flakes catch the light whenever she moves, delicate gilded and diamond scales extenuate the luminescent sapphires that are her eyes. The ocean lives in Sera's eyes, perfectly cut sapphires, gleam in the light. Deeper shades always shifting like the tide. The scales trail up to her temples and forehead. Her hair reaches down her back, brushing the back of her knees, spun silver and gold. Very fine diamond dust falls loose from her hair when she moves, reflecting rainbows from the light. The scales on her hands are dulled by the simple fact that her hands are translucent.

    Treasured Nix

    One thing she didn’t like with the change in seasons? The colder weather. It was harder to wear cute skirts and dresses. Unless you got creative or just didn’t care. Sera was somewhere in the middle of that. She would sacrifice comfort for looking good any day of the week.

    And tonight was no exception. She saw a dress at the store and fell in love with the cut of it. Not to mention it fit her like a glove. Plenty of leg showing and glimmering as she walked. To help with the colder weather, she wore a leather jacket, though as she entered Funderland, she took it off. Her long gold and silver mane cascaded down her back, nearly touching the floor.

    Her original destination had been the Tavern, she had a new Hedgespun outfit to plan. But then she spotted Sonnie and Fugly. And then Rhodes, which brought a happy smile to her face. Raising a hand, a rather translucent one, she waves.

    “Hey you two! Wasn’t expecting to run into anyone tonight.”
    Greets the Treasured. “Fugly!” she gushes, stepping over to him to pet him and scratch him behind the ears, “Sorry, if I had known I’d see you I would have brought a treat.” She did feel bad. Glancing to Rhodes, "Same for you, if I knew you were here, I would have brought you something too." she teases with a wink.

    Kinessa Carter

    Kinessa, who had been wandering around for awhile sees the group talking. It had taken her some time to find the freehold; she found rumors that they were staked out in an abandoned amusement park but with all the humans around it had been difficult to spot any appropriate changelings. She looked over at them, making sure she was taking things in properly. tail, leaves, mortals don't have those. She was pretty sure this time. Unlike earlier, when she had confused some humans with just a little too much facepaint.

    Confident she was finally in the right place the young woman ran over to the group. "Hey there!" She called, to no one in particular, "is this the... ya know... Changeling place?" she asked, whispering the last few words as though worried that someone might be listening. "I'm Kinessa, by the way!" She added, before waiting for an answer. She flashed a large smile, revealing bright white teeth, with just a few missing.

    The dog awoke with a snort, scrambling to his feet as she recognized Seraphina's voice. Tail wagging a hundred miles an hour, Fugly whined and woofed to greet the Treasured. He was less certain about Rhodes, but took a cue from Sonnie's posture that the Flowering wasn't a threat.

    Sonnie, or her part, looked up and smiled as the two Court Monarchs appeared. While she didn't bother rising from her relaxed sitting position, she did pause her movie and set the phone aside. "Hi Sera! King Rhodes! What brings you two out here this evening? I--"

    The simian Beast's sentence trailed off into the ether as she took note of the approaching stranger. Still, she didn't rise from her seat, but she did tense up somewhat, her animal instincts making her automatically wary of an unknown figure. Tilting her head to one side in curiosity, Sonnie took note of the prosthetic arm and mismatched eyes. Definitely a Lost.

    "Hey there! Sup?" This was all she said to Kinessa for the moment. With Rhodes present, she decided not to steal the Autumn King's thunder and let him ask the important questions of this new arrival.

    Mask
    Reed is by all accounts an unremarkable guy. Somewhere north of 30 and south of 40. He stands about 5’10’’ with a slight hunch. Mud brown eyes, curly brown hair worn on the longer side with unkept mutton chops. His face is lined from time out in the sun and his fingernails have dirt under them. He’s typically in work clothes and boots and it’s clear his occupation keeps him outside. He can often be seen wearing a broad-brimmed straw hat that has definitely seen better days.

    Mien
    To those that can truly see him, Reed has skin the color of mud. A deep, rich brown. His pupil-less eyes are the same color. Even his teeth are brown. His face is deeply lined. Maybe scarred? His ears are pointed and his fingers are long and knobby. He is painfully thin with a pronounced hunch to his back and a pot-belly. His bulbous head is bald save for a thin layer of green moss. His mantle manifests as an added clarity, as if you are viewing him on a crisp, clear winter day.

    Autumn. Fall. Whatever you want to call it. For Reed it means one thing: clean up. Putting gardens to bed, blowing leaves. Planting bulbs for next year.

    With no other jobs on, he's been working in the park all day. Getting things ready for the winter slow-down.

    Call it his contribution to the Freehold. Or just something to keep him from thinking too much.

    Anyway, with the waning light, work's done for the day. And so here comes the Garden Gnome, strolling through the park. Some hedge clippers swinging from his right hand. A flask in his left. Of course.

    As usual, his mask is hardened.

    He stops behind the stranger, just as she asks her question.

    "Yes," he replies simply. "It is." Not exactly approving of her direct approach. Even if the sensitive part was whispered.

    He waves to the rest of the assembled Lost with the hedge clippers. "Evening all."

    And then steps up beside Kinessa, taking a pull off his Jameson. "I'm Reed. Who are you?"

    Rhodes chuckles. "Oh, darling... I'm sure you can still think of something to give me, hmm?" He stops close to her, his eyes travelling up the bare leg before meeting her deep blue eyes with his emerald ones.

    But this was interesting. The Flowering watches as the pink-haired girl approaches, the icy winds of his mantle spinning several golden autumn leaves into the air with some haunting whispers. "We prefer to think of ourselves as members of a very select club when in public... Kinessa," the Dread Lord says wit a charming smile, his eyes watching the Wizened carefully. "But it certainly seems like you're in a place where you might see such a thing."

    He watches Sonnie uncurl from the cart and spots the genetic random-roll lottery that is the infamous Fugly. A small eyebrow arches at the dog. "Ah, yes. Sera's told me so much about you," Rhodes says directly to the mutt.

    The Dread Lord looks around, checking for mortals."Perhaps we should continue this a little more privately, if we want to discuss business." Rhodes turns to Seraphina, a half smile on his lips. "Your place or mine, darling?"

    Treasured Nix

    Well this was new. A perfectly sculpted eyebrow arches at the enthusiasm, and the use of dangerous words while out in a public place.

    “This is Funderland, if that’s what you mean.” Says the angelic voice. “For more specific club speak, a more private place would be best. And encouraged.” Replies the Nix, but she could understand why the girl would be excited. “Hi Kinessa, I’m Seraphina. Or just Sera, whichever.” The girl was defiantly one of them, there was no denying that.

    Sera giggled at the greeting from Fugly, “I missed you too buddy!” more scratches behind the ears. “Hope you didn’t make yourself sick on all those corn dogs!” the giggle then had a musical quality to it.

    Looking to Sonnie, “I had a few things I wanted to start in the Tavern. But this is much more interesting.” Cause she still didn’t have an idea for her next Hedgespun idea.

    A translucent hand waves to the Winter, who she still needed to talk with at some point.
    “Hi Reed. Hope you’ve been well.” There was a friendly smile.

    As Rhodes stepped closer and eyed her exposed leg, she turns it just enough to let him see more. A playful look in her eyes. “I could,” she agrees, “but what?” and appears to look thoughtful though she was really just playing with him. Smirking, she leans over and gives him a quick kiss.

    The whispers were heard, the words not ones she wanted to hear.

    “Considering it is your Season, I believe it’s more appropriate to continue at your place.” He was Autumns Monarch and it was his time. And it would be fun to see him show off Edna’s. “Plus, your place is rich in history.”

    Kinessa Carter

    For a brief second the new woman looks confused but then she smiles and nods. "I'm Kinessa." she chirped in answer to Reed's question, assuming that answered everything.

    "Oh... I get it. Secret 'club' " She says. She nods and puts a finger to her lips making an exaggerated "sshhh" gesture, which may appear slightly mocking (though that is not her intent). "Well, I was wondering if maybe I could look into joining this 'club' " she asked, clearly not taking the entire situation seriously.

    Her eyes scanned about the group of changelings. The monkey woman seemed nice enough, and the dog seemed nice, though Kinessa decided to refrain from petting it for now. Never know how to feel about strange dogs. Kinessa felt like she was getting a bit of a chilly reception from the others, so she decided that for now she should try to do her best to be polite and follow protocol. No sense upsetting her new friends.

    "So... who would I talk to about this?" She asked to the. group, but was already looking at Rhodes. It seemed like others were deferring to him, plus as far as she could tell he was the only one with an autumn mantle, so she could only assume that he was the one to talk to. "In private, of course"She added, wanting to prove that she was listening.
