"What were you going to say before the doors got kicked open?" asked Asuna.

Galen smiled, "Oh, I was just thinking about my own Christmases. They were always great because I got to spend time with my parents, brother, and grandfather for a few weeks during break. Everyone was always so happy. My grandfather loved to dress up as Santa Claus and pack presents under the tree. He even had my dog, Brutus, dress up as one of his reindeer. "

Galen chose not to tell Asuna about his grandfather's death. I will save that for another conversation. Im sure we will have many opportunities to talk about our losses, but its the holidays. And I dont think now would be the best time to bring it up. I want to keep a smile on her face. Especially tonight of all nights.

Wolf then asked everyone to come get their raffle gifts as their name was called. Galen saw Amon get his gift, but then he saw Black just dip from the party. He seemed to be in a rush. Must be related to what Black was holding back earlier on the sixth floor...about those Pk'rs thought Galen. Amon seemed to notice as well, and ran after him. Hopefully everything is alright, worried Galen. He then heard his name called for the raffle.

"I will be back" said Galen to Asuna. "Got to see what I got."

Asuna nodded in return. As Galen went up to the table and received his gift, he noticed it felt light, but had a little bit of weight to it. He then decided it would be nice to open it in front of Asuna. As Galen returned to his seat, he saw Asuna's eyes stare at his blue present.

"What did you get?"smiled Asuna.

"Not sure" grinned Galen. "But Im about to find out.

Galen then tapped his gift, and watched as the wrapping disappeared into a thousand blue pieces of light. Galen was stunned when he saw his gift. It appeared to be a mask of some sort, although what it did he wasnt sure. It was round, with a phantom-like look. It had slits for the eyes and mouth. It almost reminded him of an Iron Man mask. Cool, he thought. Let's check the stats. The stats were fairly decent, but then Galen saw the special ability. <<Underwater Breathing>>. Sweet! Im not sure if there are any underwater caverns to explore in SAO, but with this mask...You can be sure I will find out. Galen then smiled. I will have to thank Amon (Galen saw the tag under the previous owner slot). Galen then looked to the door, noticing Amon dragging Black to the party, tears down his face. Glad to see those two came back.

Galen then turned his attention back to Asuna. "Its a mask that grants <<Underwater Breathing>>".

Asuna smiled, and seemed like she was about to speak when they both heard Wolf call her name to receive her gift. She then dismissed herself as she walked over to the table to pick up her raffle present. I wonder what kinda gift she will receive? thought Galen. Crap! I almost forgot about giving her MY gift! Galen then checked his inventory to make sure it was still there. Ok. After she opens up her raffle, I've got to give her my gift. I dont want her to think I didnt get her anything. We are partners after all.

Yuuki picked up the small, brightly colored box from the table holding all of the other boxes. It was wrapped in blue paper that had white crescents running across the bottom for decoration. But it was kind of small in terms of size; Yuuki's cat ears twitched slightly. As she wandered back to the wall, Yuuki questioned herself of who it was from and what it might be. Placing a gloved finger in the loop of the bow, she tugged it undone and opened the box to see its contents. Inside lay a necklace, colors swirling inside. It gave her a sense of nostalgia; she couldn't place her finger exactly where the necklace related to herself, but in a sense, she knew exactly where it was from. Peering into the glass with crimson eyes as it dangled for her hand, the seconds passed soundlessly except for the people talking in the background.

At the minute mark, Yuuki felt her eyes widen. Looking back it, she closed her open mouth and chuckled slightly. Yuuki covered her lips to prevent it from being too loud. It was the same; Yuuki was surprised Vyse had remembered it. She gazed over the stats to see that there were extra additions to it such as protection against poisoning amongst other things. She slipped the metal around her neck and clipped it into place. Looking for Vyse, she eventually spotted him and walked over to him. A smile broke out over her face as she reached him. And even though he was taller than herself, Yuuki sill reached up and ruffled his ghastly, white-grayish hair.

"Thanks," she said, picking the necklace up from her neck and showing it to him so he caught her drift.

Nick walked towards the table that had the raffle.
It was a black cloak called the cloak af invissibility.

No way this must have cost a fortune... Nick thought as he walked towards galen.

"Hey man, thanks for the gift in the raffle, really love it."

"Nice to see you like it" He said and smiled.

Black and amon we're talking in the corner.
Seems like most of us are having fun. Nick thought.

He walked towards the bar to have another drink.

Wolf opened the menu to the present and selected the option, <<open>>. The raffle present opened itself and Wolf watched as a black cloak, player made, materialized into his hands. It was rather amateurish but that's what made it even better. The hard work put into making such a task made Wolf materialize a smile as he tried it on. The creator of the long black coat was Vyse, although it wasn't long enough for Wolf, once he placed it in his arms, rather than selecting <<Equip>>, the coat seemed to stretch to fit his build perfectly thanks to the assistance of the game system.

"This is awesome," Wolf said to Vyse as he checked the available open slots. There were 7 open slots to add bonuses to the cloak which was the average for most equipment. It had no significant stats but still held the basic 10 defense. Other than stats, it gave the bulky giant a rather mysterious look, one capable of being a final boss.

"And I see how it is," Wolf said to Yuuki who was next to Vyse. "Don't open my presents, it's whatever." Wolf turned away from her and searched for other people to talk to.

When Wolf had mentioned that it wasn't present time just yet, Vyse -looking very embarrassed- had stood upright again with a nervous chuckle and proceeded to place his presents on the table and wait for instruction. He took a seat and watched as his friends all received a gift from the raffle, and when his name was called, he went up and was handed a rather small box. Slightly confused by what it could possibly be, he resumed his seat by the bar and proceeded to open the gift.

With a quick tap the wrapping paper shattered, revealing a small box. Vyse opened the box, and inside lay a small glass vial. The Forgotten Memory. Ever so gently Vyse plucked the vial from the box, fearing that he might break the fragile item if he handled it. A small window appeared over the item explaining what it was and how to use it;


The Forgotten Memory

This item allows the holder to store fragments of themselves as a memory.
Opening the vial will release the memory, allowing the one who opened it
to see or hear what was place inside. However, once opened, the memory
vanishes forever, leaving the vial empty for another memory to be placed
within. To use, simply select
Audio or Visual from the items menu, remove
the stopper and speak into the opening. This item may be gifted to a friend.

______________________________________________________
Previous Owner: Yuuki


Vyse's eyes widened as he read the description. This gift was incredible, and must have cost a fortune. Immediately he thought about finding Yuuki, but before he had the chance to even get up, he felt a hand ruffle his long hair. Through the stray strands of white hair, he saw it was Yuuki, and she was wearing the necklace he had gotten her. with a smile, she lifted it off of her chest and showed it to him.
"I wasn't sure if you would remember it," Vyse said, smiling in return. Before he could say anything else, Wolf emerged from behind Yuuki, already wearing his present.
"Makes you look as menacing and mysterious as the day we met you." he chuckled as he looked over Wolf in his new coat. The words triggered a twang of nostalgia in Vyse as he remembered when he had met Yuuki and Wolf. He remembered the girl with blue hair, laughing at him trying to kill boars and wolves on the second floor. He remembered the dark, hooded man, which later turned out to be Wolf, offering to sell him information. He had known both of them since the second floor, and he counted them as his closest friends. With a sigh and a shake of his head, Vyse snapped back to reality.

Asuna was listening to Galen talk about his Christmases back at home. It was nice being able to talk about home back in the real world, it was no longer too painful to talk about. Reminiscing about the real world made her really miss her family, even her strict mother. At least back at home she did not have to worry about being killed by monsters.

The raffle began and a few other players got up to collect their gifts. Asuna saw one of the players open up her gift and hoped that he liked it. She had no idea what kind of gift to buy so she decided to make something homemade. Back at home she did not receive many gifts but she was still thankful to be in the company of family. At least now in Aincrad she had good company to be with during the holidays. Nobody deserved to be alone during this time. She was wondering whether or not this would be a good time to give a gift to a particular person.

She heard Galen's name called out and looked at the table, watching him collect his gift. When she asked him what was in the gift, he opened it and showed it to her. It was an underwater breathing mask, which looked pretty cool.

"Oh nice, you can use it for fun. Though you would have to be careful of any underwater monsters that will try to attack you."

Her name was announced so she excused herself and headed straight for the table with all of the raffle gifts. Asuna got her gift and wondered what was inside it. She headed back to where Galen was at and knew he was curious what she got as well. She opened the box and saw that it was a golden band that would go around her wrist. Asuna pressed on the item to check out its stats and purpose. The item was meant to used in combat because it enhances the user's defense for a short while.

"This is pretty cool, I'll be sure to use it during the boss fight." Asuna stored the gift in her inventory.

"Don't open my presents, it's whatever." Wolf turned away from her and searched for other people to talk to. Would the idiot stop acting like such a big baby? Before he got much farther, Yuuki grabbed his hand and forced him to pivot back around again. She brought him back in by his hand and blushed as she dropped it. Using her own fingers to bring out the menu, Yuuki swiped a gloved finger across the space in front of her and the menu popped up. She located the present within her inventory and took it out so it was resting in her hands. It was pretty big, but not large enough for her to not be able to hold it up and the box was wrapped in wrapping paper littered with cherries. Her cat ears twitched slightly.

Yuuki opened it up and was surprised to find that there were many things in it rather than one; but the gift was still only one thing, considering the contents. Inside was an arrangment of art supplies, including all the prominant primary colors in paints (amongst other random hues), canvases, etc. A grin started to form on her face, stretching from one side to the other. She looked up after she had stored away in her storage for later use, smiling at Wolf before she gave him a hug. "Thanks," she said, tail swaying slightly as she pulled away. She took out another box, wrapped in a simple, blue paper and topped with a grey bow.

"This is for you."

Noiki looked over from the window to see that Asuna had recieved her gift from the raffle. She rushed over with a happy smile.

"Hey, Asuna, happy holidays! I was going to talk to you earlier, but you were talking to Galen and it seemed rude to interrupt. I hope my gift is useful to you," she said a bit nervously. She was awful at picking gifts for people, and had taken a big risk this time with getting a wristband. It could've gone out to one of the guys, and that'd be pretty embarrassing...

She looked around the room and saw everyone giving each other gifts. She looked down at her Fanta a bit sadly. She's gotten a gift for Amon, but she wasn't sure that he'd like it. Right now, he looked pretty preoccupied yelling at Black. She thought it would also be pretty rude to interrupt that, ....whatever that was... So, she looked around for people she hadn't wished a happy holidays to. There were a lot. She looked over towards Yuuki and Wolf, and decided that she sort of was obligated to say something to Wolf, since he was the team leader and was the one who let her join in the first place.

"Sorry, Asuna, I've got to go. Merry Christmas!" she said cheerfully, and stepped away. Her cat ears hung in shame. That was rude. She'd have to talk to Asuna again later. Why was life so complicated?!

"Hey, Wolf," she said once she'd made her way to them. "I just wanted to say thanks for letting me join the group. It means a lot." She said, and noticed how Yuuki and Wolf looked at each other. She smirked and held in a laugh. She hoped that they would get married and have five children. They'd be the most hilarious family in the world... Ah, god, she could totally imagine that.

Before Wolf could make any distance, he was forced backwards by a somewhat tiny hand. The surprisingly strong force sent him around almost ramming his pectorals into Yuuki's face. She opened his present and received one of his own. It was wrapped with a rather simple blue paper which was Wolf's favorite color. It shone in his eyes and he gently took it off of her hands.

He set the present to <<open>> and an array of knives appeared before him. There were knives long enough to be a sword, and small knives used for throwing along with kitchen and butcher knives. Wolf held up a butter knife and gave Yuuki a raised eyebrow look.

Noiki came over and thanked Wolf just as he did that. "The more the merrier," Wolf said. He looked around for a clock but quickly realized that there was a built in clock on his screen. It was getting late and everything was getting too peaceful. "Alright everyone," Wolf announced. "Our time is running short so let's hurry and bring this party to a close. Open your remaining presents so we could say our farewells."

It was time to get crazy again. But that'll have to wait until next year.

Amon had finally been able to force Black to calm back down. Black was still looking gloomy but he had managed to stop trying to leave. For the first time during the night Amon was starting to think positive for a change. Everything seemed brighter, less gray, and more colorful. Like Kayaba Akihiko had suddenly changed the settings on the game and brightened the color palette. Amon saw people going to get their raffle presents and decided to do so as well. Amon opened his, it had been from Nick. When finally finished getting through the pound of wrapping paper that had been inside the small box Amon looked inside and saw a small crystal. After a little tinkering he saw that the present was actually a voice recorder. "That's kinda neat." Amon said looking at it. "I have no idea when I am going to use this but I have a feeling that eventually it will get a use." Amon smiled and put the item into his inventory.

The party was starting to wind down and Amon wanted to do one more thing before the party ended. Amon walked over to the cooler and took out an orange fanta and placed poured it into a champagne glass. "Your attention please everyone!" Amon said after he told the DJ to stop for a bit. "Would everybody please proceed to the food table and grab a drink and a champagne glass! I wish to propose a toast!"

After everybody had gone over and done what he had asked and when everybody was ready he held up his glass prompting everybody else to do the same. “I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating, drinking and games. If you're going to lie, lie for a friend. If you're going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. If you're going to drink, drink with me. And if you like to play games then let's go beat this one!"

Black loved the toast, and it had made him chuckle as he stayed in the back of the room. His plan to go and hide had not been the best try ever but he had barely got out the door before someone had dragged him back in. He had really hopped to get out of the room before his gift had come out but it hadn’t worked. He slowly worked his way towards the door, this time trying to be much more subtle. Then just as he was about to get out he turned around and noticed the time. Only two minutes to his gift to the group. He knew that most of them might not get it, but if nothing else he would have a blast.

He shouted above everyone as they were drinking,

"By the way wolf, this gift is for you to help bring back some lovely memories, and before everyone gets upset. You might want to remember that this originally came from Wolf."

Everyone looked at Wolf as if looking for an answer and Wolf himself seemed perplexed by his announcement.
The time hit midnight and all the sudden a small contraption placed in the center of the room opened. It was meant to store smells to help remember particular places, and probably to help with great pranks. The smell of the fart that Wolf had let go when he had attacked his swan boat ages ago started to fill the room and Black rushed out the door. As soon as he was out of the room he hid and bolted for his hiding spot that he had scouted earlier. He couldn't let this opportunity pass just to see the faces of everyone. He had only caught a small whiff of the fart but it was as pungent as the day wolf had released it. He imagined the faces of those in the room as they slowly realized what was happening and ran for the exits. He knew he couldn't, or rather shouldn't have done what he did but hey, misery always loved company and he thought of no better way to get back at all of them for leaving him in the lake after that crazy day.

The party was at it's climax and amon had just given a proper toast to the days ahead,
it made nick chuckle at least,

He saw that black was trying to get away from the party again but he stepped a second and shouted: "By the way wolf, this gift is for you to help bring back some lovely memories, and before everyone gets upset. You might want to remember that this originally came from Wolf."

Wolf himself seemed perplex and quickly turned pale when it hit him.
The time hit midnight at that point and nick heard something click and open, when that happened he saw black bailing out the room.

Oh s#$%t nick thought as he ran towards the nearest window.
He didn't bother to open it as he smelled what was unleashed.
Dear god! How can this be! How can someone smell this bad!

Nick jumped or at least planed to jump trough the window to the floor below but when he went face first into the window he bounced back and a message came up >>Immortal Object<< "Oh come on!" He shouted as he jumped up and opened the window.
He jumped out of the window and fell face first into the snow, even if it was fifteen floors it was inside a safe are,thus he did not receive damage.

My god, that's one hell of a way to end a party. He muttered as he laughed.

Galen waited patiently as Asuna left to get her raffle. He saw Noiki stop and greet Asuna before she sat back down in front of Galen with her gift. When she opened up the box, out popped a small gold wrist band. It seemed pretty normal for a gift, but as Asuna showed him the stats, Galen realized it had some defensive properties as well. Might be good for some future battles, he thought.

"This is pretty cool, I'll be sure to use it during the boss fight." said Asuna, as she smiled.

"It should help out in any future fights" smiled Galen. As he did, he heard Wolf yelling out that it was time to wind down the party. Galen looked at the in game clock and saw it was getting pretty late. Whoa! I guess its time for me to give her that gift. I hope she likes it. Galen was starting to blush as he went through his inventory and found the present. As he pulled out the red present with gold ribbon, he presented it to Asuna, who looked in awe.

"Here Asuna. Merry Christmas. I know its early, but... I wanted you to have this. You wont believe what I had to do to find it. I honestly didnt think it would exist in this game, but Im glad it does." Galen smiled as he handed her the wrapped gift. I really hope she likes it!

When Asuna was about to go back to her seat, she was approached by Noiki. Asuna was aware that Noiki was the one who gave her the golden wrist band for the raffle. The rapier user smiled towards Noiki's direction, to show that she was appreciative of the gift.

"Happy Holidays to you as well. Your gift is pretty unique, I really do like it. Thank you very much for it."

Considering how the wrist band had special defensive properties, it was probably a bit pricey to buy. Overall Asuna did not mind whatever gift she received because it was always the thought that counted. Asuna waved bye when Noiki left to go talk to the other individuals in the room. She went back to her seat where Galen was waiting, and most likely wondering what she got from the raffle. Asuna showed him the golden wrist band and explained to him its special properties. Her eyes widen in a bit of surprise when Galen presented a gift to her. It was a beautifully wrapped gift and she was excited to see what the gift's contents were. She pulled apart the golden ribbon neatly and did her best not to rip off the wrapping paper like a little kid would. The ribbon and wrapping paper disintegrate into polygons once they were taken off.

She opened up the box and a smile escaped from her lips. Galen had gotten her a nerdy type of gift. It was a Lancelot knightmare frame model from the popular anime Code Geass. The Lancelot was a very powerful knightmare frame and played an important role in the anime's story line. Asuna recalled how she and Galen discussed about their favorite shows back in the real world. She mentioned how she watched a few anime series and listed some of her favorite ones.

"Thank you so much, I really like it!" Her eyes beamed like a little kid. "I've never gotten anime merchandise before, so I'm really amazed on how you managed to find something like this in Aincrad."

Now it was time for Asuna to present her gift to a certain particular individual. She put the Lancelot model at the side and opened up her inventory. Seconds later two gift boxes appeared in her hands. One of the boxes was bigger than the other. The smaller box was wrapped with golden paper and the bigger one had candy cane design wrapping and a white bow.

"I hope you like your gifts." She handed them over to Galen.

Galen was beaming after he saw the smile cross Asuna's lips. She really liked my gift!

"Thank you so much, I really like it!" said Asuna. "I've never gotten anime merchandise before, so I'm really amazed on how you managed to find something like this in Aincrad."

Moments later, Asuna put away her gift, and then pulled out two presents of her own. One was large and had candy cane wrapping, while the smaller one was golden in color. Wow! he thought. I get 2 gifts! Which one do I open first?

"Aww." he said while blushing. "That's not fair. You got me 2 gifts! Haha."

"I hope you like your gifts!" Asuna said.

Galen wasn't sure on which one to pick, but he ultimately decided on the candy cane one first. As he tapped the gift, the wrapping disappeared, revealing a dozen cup cakes. Oooooo! thought Galen. Im not sure what flavor these are, but if Asuna made them, Im sure they are delicious.

"Thanks Asuna!" smiled Galen. " I will save these later for special occasions" Galen then began thinking about sharing them with Asuna later.

Galen then turned his attention to the smaller golden gift. What could it be? he pondered. Maybe some kinda jewelry? As Galen opened the wrapping, he was pleasantly surprised at what he found. A DRAGON NECKLACE!!!! That's so awesome!! he thought. It was a necklace of a small silver dragon.

"Thanks Asuna!" beamed Galen. "I'm going to wear this necklace all the time." Galen then ushered enough courage to step forward and hug Asuna. She seemed pleasantly surprised. He put away his presents when Amon called everyone up to the table for a toast. Galen ushered for Asuna to take the lead, and the two joined the rest of the gang at the table, champagne glasses ready.

“I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating, drinking and games. If you're going to lie, lie for a friend. If you're going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. If you're going to drink, drink with me. And if you like to play games then let's go beat this one!" said Amon.

"Hear hear!" said Galen as everyone raised their glasses in a toast.

Galen then noticed Black trying to sneak out again after the toast. Before he escaped he turned toward the rest of the guests before saying, "By the way wolf, this gift is for you to help bring back some lovely memories, and before everyone gets upset. You might want to remember that this originally came from Wolf."

What is he up to? thought Galen. At that moment, a *whisp* sound began in the center of the room. Everyone jumped at first, unsure about what was happening. Then...a pungent smell began filling the room. It was feint at first, then it grew almost unbearable. Everyone started to cough and began to rush out of the room. Galen grabbed Asuna's hand, making sure they both escaped that gas chamber before either of them began to faint. They were both coughing and covering their mouths by the time they made it down the stairs to the lobby of the building.

"Are you ok?" asked Galen as they arrived safely from danger.
