[VH31] Cushions and Coverlets

Recommended Posts

Addison Toft

It wasn't an ordinary day at Pre-Hogwarts Primary - it was Pajama Day! Everyone, even the instructors, had come dressed in appropriate (and by directive, also tasteful) attire, along with their stuffed animals, security blankets, and favorite pillows. As part of their main recess break, the classroom had even been magically arranged, the desks and chairs placed to form the infrastructure for a massive pillow fort. Piles of pillows and mounds of blankets were conjured and strewn across the floor for everyone to use.

 

So students banded together to begin stacking pillows into mighty walls, constructing hallways between the pods of tables. Eventually, half the classroom became Pillowtopia.

 

The other half, however, was different. A rival gang of PHP classmates decided that pillows were too bulky and oppressive; they sought freedom from the tyranny of the cushions and raised a blanket fort instead, draping their long sheets across chairs and shelves. A canopy of cotton went up over their heads as Blanketborough came into being.

 

And as all children of two sides do, Pillowtopia and Blanketborough soon declared war. Nobody knew who threw the first comforter, or who swung the retaliatory quilt, but it didn't take long for the skirmish to explode.

 

It would be remembered as the fluffiest war in the history of Pre-Hogwarts Primary, as pillows came to bear and blankets whirled about. It was the Great Feather Fight of 2033.

OOC

Hi everyone! <3 Welcome to our big pillow and blanket fight for VH31. This isn't a formal game or an annual event, just a thread Simeon and I thought would be a fun opportunity for everyone to horse around in.

 

There aren't any points, tallies, or scores, just have your character pick a side: blankets or pillows. Then whack away!

 

This idea is based on the episode "Pillows and Blankets" from the show Community. The concept for this thread was inspired by Simeon Rowe <3

Heidi Zeisberger

Heidi had half against her will come to the activity. She wasn't exactly eager. But she was bored hanging around her room. She was off course wearing her cutest PJs, a pink cami and shorts Victoria's Secret set. How fitting.

 

She wasn't exactly into all this, she hovered by a wall, glancing around.

Kaelyn Paddock

Pajama day had finally arrived!

 

Kaelyn flounced in all super excited, wearing a winged unicorn onesie and carrying her favourite stuffed bunny, Binky, with her. As inviting as all the pillows looked, she was of the opinion that Blanketborough would reign victorious in the end and so that was where her loyalties lay. Sticking Binky into her hood and grabbing the lightest sheet she could find (that was hopefully easier to carry around than some of the other quilts and things she had spotted first) from the floor, she looked around for someone to whip it at.

 

There was that one girl with the accent standing by the wall, looking like she didn’t want to join in, so naturally that was who Kaelyn decided to target first. This was a party, folks! Nobody should be looking so forlorn at a party!

 

Of course that might not be the best decision, given how poorly their first encounter went, but who knows? Maybe today Kaelyn could actually get the sulky princess to stop being such a royal pain in the – well, you know what.

 

FWAP! went the blanket, aimed right at Heidi’s bare legs.

Gary Youdle

Leaving the house clad in the same clothes that he had slept in just did not feel right to Gary. Therefore, after waking up, he had chosen to dress himself in regular attire- jeans, trainers, and the like- and set his freshly laundered pajamas in a small bag by the fireplace to snag before he was sent through the Floo. While he was gorging himself on about a dozen sausages for breakfast, however someone decided that his, ahem, outfit plan required alteration.

 

Upon arrival to the Primary school, Gary headed to the toilet to change in private. Dipping his hand into the bag, he failed to feel the simple cotton fabric that comprised his athletic shorts and a tee. Instead, his skin brushed up against some sort of silkier material. Confusion was plain across the boy’s face, so he pulled the garment out and held it in front of his face.

 

It was a bloody nightgown.

 

"You have to wear pajamas today, it's the rules."

 

These words haunted Gary as shuffled out of the bathroom, unused to the odd sensation of a breeze airing out his upper thighs. “Anyone who says a single word gets a pillowcase full of rocks in the middle of their face,” he warned through gritted teeth, as threateningly as one could while adorning feathers.

"TEM PILLOW," announced Lucius, moving into the room with a swagger no one could refute whilst gnawing on a breakfast bar made of granola and chocolate and caramel and probably Red Bull.

 

Today's requirements were pajamas: DONE. And a stuffed animal: ALSO DONE.

 

He also had to pick a side, which of course was done as soon as he got here. So he was done for the day. Nice. DONE.

 

Standing beside Gary, he leaned in and whispered, "Does this count as a word? Because I don't want that thing that you said to happen to me but I did want to say that looks bloody comfortable."

Briar Naaktgeboren

So this wasn’t swimming day?

 

The weatherman had reported that the day would be presented with unusually hot temperatures, and Briar had been certain that just yesterday Ms Blithe had announced it would be swimming day. Apparently not. Briar donned her new blue and purple tie dye swimsuit while other students wore their cosiest pyjamas (some so hideous that they shouldn’t have ever left the private sphere). Some children even brought their stuffed animals and played with them instead of paying attention in class. Luckily, Briar had spent the first half of the day glued to her desk seat, successfully avoiding most other students.

 

When recess came around, however, desks were pushed around as the children divided into two teams, and Briar was forced out of her seat. Covering as much of her bare legs with her hands as she could, Briar shuffled shamefully towards Kaelyn and hid behind her. She spent about three seconds admiring her friend’s beautiful golden locks before snatching the blanket that had just been used to attack the girl from America out of Kaelyn’s hands, and quickly wrapped it around her shoulders.

 

“Thanks Kaelyn. Go Team Blanket…” Briar mumbled weakly.

He thought the room looked like a good place for a nap!!! Wrong, a fight had broken out between the two teams!!! Chiron was dressed in his black and white G & R long sleeved PJ Top and His Black Animal from the muppet's PJ bottoms. Accompanied with his fluffy black cat Slippers. He wasn't ready for a fight, so he lay just at the back of Kaelyn and Briar in a comfy pile of blankets!!! After his quick nap he was ready to do battle!!! He saw Kae Kae aim at the brash American princess, he to having beef with the girl decided to send a very well rolled up rough towel her way!!!!

 

''Take that Homie''

 

He shouted!!!! Throwing up the rock horns in an act of rebellion.

Heidi Zeisberger

Heidi was not impressed. The first hit by Kaelyn had made her squirm, the strap of her cami slipping a little. She fixed the pink strap and decided to ignore her. She wasn't the worst here. There was definitely worse like- "CHIRON! GO AWAY!" She roared. He was the worst by far. He just never gave up and she found his pep mega annoying. You didn't have to always fix something. It wasn't his job to step in and save her or other people every time she had a melt down.

 

He needed to get out of her life fast. She picked up a pretty heavy cushion and lobbed it right at his face, aiming to strike. And she did so. Pretty viscously. She had good aim and a good amount of power behind it. One day she would make an excellent beater. "I am notyour homie" She muttered, turning away;

 

After successfully striking Chiron she turned her attention else where. Hitting people was fun, and actually getting away with it was more fun. She smirked, looking around for her next victim, however was instantly distracted. There were two boys standing not too far from her. One in weird gold PJs with like a real stuffed eagle or something EW! And then another boy who seemed just as strange in an old fashioned night gown. But whatever, their faces were cute at least.

Joseph Beattie

Joseph Beattie was a colossal spoilsport. He hadn’t worn pyjamas that day, because he was terribly old and boring and did not believe in the fun of wearing such things outside the house. Distantly, he’d hoped that the others would realise what an absurd thing it was, to come to school in pyjamas, but the sight of the classroom decked out in a myriad of squishiness—blankets and pillows and cushions, oh my!—illustrated that this had been a thought made in vain.

 

Consequently, Joe felt perhaps even more superior than usual. One poor sod was cavorting around in a nightie, for Merlin’s sake. He considered a snide comment, but, frankly, was that really as productive as he thought? Possibly not—he didn’t want a pile of rocks to the face, either.

 

It would have been better, in retrospect, to leave and not look back. Joe had considered, too, until someone whacked him across the shoulders with their pillow and the boy entirely forgot himself.

 

“Oi, you little git,” he called, blindly aiming through the feathers that had erupted and whacking someone else entirely around the face. “Er—”

WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWACK!!!!!!!! A right old smack around the kisser from the Yankie doodle dandy. Chiron fell to the floor like a sac of taters. He was out for the count and the fight had only just begun, Chiron could take a hit, even from guys built like tanks but this was a tornado still pillow throw. Lying spread on the floor, all Chiron could muster was,

 

''Hello Mr floppy bottom, I'd like 6 turkeys and a bowl of custard please.''

 

He didn't know how long he was out for. All he knew was that someone was holding his head and talking to him, he didn't know what!!!!!

Simeon Rowe
While his future yearmates were being savages and tearing each other apart with pillows, Simeon decided his talents would be much more useful building a fort made of pillows. After all, a pillow fight free-for-all was no way to have a pillow fight. There needed to be teams. When he was done building his fort, all of the smartest people in the room would see how awesome the fort was, go into the fort, and form one team. The rest of the losers would, presumably, die a horrible and painful death.


It didn't take long at all to build the fort. For whatever reason there were approximately a bajillion pillows at his disposal. He wrapped blankets around the pillows for extra protection, and a large blanket over it all. It was his masterpiece. To distinguish himself as ruler of this pillow fort, he fashioned himself a fancy looking hat and sash. Now, he was in charge.


"Hey! Everyone! Come check out my fort!" He waved his hands, jumped up and down, and pointed to his masterpiece. Apparently everyone was having too much fun to notice. He frowned, and grabbed a pillow from inside of the fort.


"Hey! K!" He chucked the pillow at Kaelyn, and sprinted back into the fort. NOW people would see his genius. Mwahahahah.


He barricaded himself into the fort with all of the pillows he could muster, of course leaving a small hole in the middle for him to look through. HE. WAS. UNSTOPPABLE.

A knoll of blankets sat innocently in the middle of a hallway within Pillowtopia. As children raced around and hopped over it, nobody paid it much mind because what good citizen of Pillowtopia would willingly pick up a blanket? It was a pile of old, faded colors that wasn't harming anyone or causing problems for anybody. Nothing to see here, people.

 

As the corridor traffic dwindled, the blankets waited patiently until the area was devoid of Pillowtopians. Sounds of the raging battle could be heard throughout the classroom, but the blankets knew there was only one way to win the war: it needed to strike at the heart of the cushionbearers. How did that saying go? Cut off the head of the snake? That was the plan.

 

When the coast was clear, the blankets shuffled forward, a singular mass of linens that oozed and crept along, falling still at every junction to check if anybody was around the corner. Something that sounded like a muffled giggle came out from the mass of fabric, but was quickly silenced as the mound moved on.

 

Addison was in enemy territory, looking for the Pillow Czar. She'd surprise him and wrap him up in blankets so tightly everyone would think she'd found a mummy from an Egyptian tomb. Crawling on her hands and knees inside her disguise, she popped her head out every now and then to check her surroundings. If the brunette was caught here in the heart of the hostiles' homeland, she would be thoroughly buffeted by pillows til the cows came home. But it was a risk she had to take to find the leader.

 

She was on the hunt for Simeon Rowe.

Elaine Stewart

Looking down at the legs of her faded gray pajamas, Elaine felt slightly ashamed and wondered why it was exactly that she had decided to wear hers. She would have felt a lot more comfortable in her usual jeans and t-shirt combination. She quickly grabbed a pillow from the pile, clutching it towards her chest. Huddling more towards the side of the room, not wanting to join immediately, she watched as the chaos unfolded in front of her.

 

Feathers were flying everywhere, lint from the blankets falling down, covering the floor with tiny specks. It was a rainbow of colors, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, they stood out amongst the white feathers that were strewn around.

 

Elaine jumped and stepped to the side as a student nearly backed up into her as they avoided a side swipe from a fellow Pillowtopian. A couple of other students seemingly did battle with one another, swatting each other with their chosen items. Scanning the room, Elaine saw Briar holding a blanket and decided to seize her chance.

 

Taking aim she launched her pillow towards Briar's shoulder giggling uncharacteristically as she did so. This was more fun than she had originally anticipated.

Coming to, Chiron lept to his feet thanking who ever it was that had talked to him, never seen them before he thought!!!! Just then he saw Elaine aim a pillow at his good friend Brair, he had to talk revenge!!!!! He grabbed a rather fetching Gun's & Roses' blanket he brought from home and began to wrap Elaine from feet to shoulders very tightly!!!! Nodding his head towards Briar as a good job well done!!!

 

''Take that, well no its Gun's and Roses' really!!! But you know what I mean.''

 

''You ok Briar'' as he ran over to make sure her poor head was ok.

Kaelyn Paddock

Kaelyn was sweating buckets inside her cozy onesie. In an effort to look super adorable, she had completely disregarded how hot it could get in the dead of summer even while indoors. The blanket she had slung around her neck like a cape, after Briar stole the other one from her, only made matters worse. Maybe she should switch sides?

 

Nah.

 

Blankets and pillows were being thrown back and forth. Although Heidi hadn’t hit her back, she did knock Chiron out good. Then Kaelyn heard the familiar voice of her friend, Dim. By the time she turned around, though, she had already got hit in the stomach by a pillow and spotted his head of wild, black hair retreating into his pillow fort.

 

“Briar, Chiron, this way!” she yelped, whipping off her cape so she could use it as a weapon instead and started whacking away at Simeon’s fort.

Chiron Drakon

With Kaelyn ordering a small group of the blanket city, like general patton in girly form, by small Chiron and Brair, she headed for the pillow fort of Simeon!!!! Chiron turned and soldier like picked up a tightly rolled blanket, held it like a riffle to his shoulder and marched to war. Chiron started a battle cry,

 

''I don't know but I've been told / Kaelyn's army will eat you cold / Listen up and listen good / Brair is going to rock the hood.'' "American Army"

 

He stud next to Kaelyn straight backed and to attention!!! Then turned to Brair and said,

 

''Come on Lieutenant Brair!!!!''

She turned left, then left, then right, then left, then went straight, then left, and right, and right again, then straight, straight, left, left, left, left, left..........

 

Addison was lost. The architects of Pillowtopia were surely crafty individuals who had engineered their city to be a veritable labyrinth in order to confuse invaders. It didn't help that she was getting uncomfortably hot underneath the heap of blankets, either. Shuffling along without any regard to whether or not someone would spot her, she abandoned her search for Simeon and was now just looking for anyone to ambush. Even someone from Blanketborough would do.

 

Finally she spotted someone not too far off. Picking up the fabric that pooled dangerously at her feet and threatened to trip her up, Addison went into a full charge. As she neared her victim, she hopped forward and spread open her arms, fistfuls of cloth in each hand to spread the blanket as wide as she could into a snaring net. She looked somewhat like a flying squirrel. But she was a flying squirrel of blankety death!

 

Hopefully whoever she ended up tackling didn't suffer a heart attack.

 

"Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

Joe hadn’t really lingered to see who he’d hit. It wasn’t worth it, not really, because chances were they didn’t really matter, anyway. The only person who did was Eden and he sincerely doubted that she’d deigned to show up for this. Frankly, Joe didn’t blame her. In fact, he was beginning to envy her absence, because, as his classmates lurched around like lunatics, he himself was regretting ever getting involved. Even his reluctant whallop of an as-yet unidentified victim had been—well, just that. In his defence, it hadn’t been entirely unwarranted.

 

Escape ought to have been easy, though Joe was rapidly coming to terms with the fact that nothing in this place was ever so simple as it seemed. He’d imagined that he might make a silent escape between the jumbled constructions that were supposed to resemble forts, but that thought had been entirely disregarding the enthusiasm of his classmates. Given that he did not share it, Joe had foolishly imagined it not to exist.

 

A girl had launched herself at him. Joe stumbled to the ground with a disgruntled squawk. He fumbled about at the blanket that had consumed him, but didn’t get much further than whacking his attacker blindly with his pillow.

 

“Gerrof, you maniac!” came Joe’s muffled protest.

Chiron looked to the side and saw the boy twin he had seen in the park at break!!! He was alone and not with the evil twin, pay back time me thinks, The twin was jumped by a girl and he was fighting her like one to get her off. Perfect don't have to be too cunning he's already distracted.

 

Chiron rushed over with a number of different coloured towels and began to wrap Joe's legs together, once he had wrapped every part of his body with towels he stud Joe up and lent him against the book case, then went back to join the ranks to attack the pillow fort.
