[ ooc: open to thread jacking/easily seen unless otherwise indicated. wonderland went haywire and let it happen w/ this post so people can freely read responses and reply. if you have any concerns about the bar or want to help generate a memorial for those gone, head there to oocly talk about it! ] ( the camera pans on damon who is seated up on top of the bar. it's hard to imagine it's been an entire year. how much he's changed, how much his relationship with elena and with people in wonderland has changed since then. he's in a much better place despite how hard it's been lately, despite witnessing elena's- damon smiles for the camera. )
Wonderland, you've officially been graced with my presence for an entire
wild and crazy year. When I arrived, I was handing out ponies to everyone who made it worth my while, and now I'm giving you a fully operating bar
with regular activities. ( damon pans out to give a view of it all and then he turns the video back toward his face again. he smirks and lifts up a glass in toast like he did for his very first network post. )
You're welcome. The name's TBA.
I realize there's already a bar here, but
no one's claimed it since- since Cami also
disappeared. ( and she was a friend so that's harder to talk about. )
It's been empty. It felt... strange picking up a bar with so much history from old timers. ( it's not just the fact he bit Simon though there's also that. They made their mark here, and for all damon's faults, it wouldn't feel right.
he steps out of the bar to indicate where it's located. Level 4. damon turns the camera towards the chalk board which lists out the bar's current schedule. )
My girl tells me apparently
, for some reason, Trivia Nights are the popular thing in bars so
it's on our weekly schedule along with a host of other fun
times to be enjoyed by all. Schedule changes monthly so keep checking back.
I'm looking for people who want to work even if money has no meaning so
I can't exactly pay you. But
consider this... it's something to keep boredom from swallowing you whole and
you get to help out your fellow, trapped Wonderland-er. Need bartenders, waiters and waitresses, and chefs if you can cook. And yes
, I know we can pull it all
out of the closets perfectly, but sometimes it's nice to have someone make
something for you even if it's not perfect.( he lifts up his glass again in toast for the camera. )
Especially if it's not perfect. ( perfect isn't real, and damon always wants what's real. )
