    In over a year Alex hadn’t once shown any indication that it was her birthday, that a day was any different than usual. He hadn’t asked. They had figured out on christmas that celebrations weren’t their thing and she knew how his birthday was only connected to bad memories. But they were a couple now and since Alex didn’t care for romantic gestures either, the boy had thought up something different. She couldn’t say no to a simple dinner, not when he cooked for them most days anyway.
    Daniel just might’ve ‘forgotten’ to mention that he friends he’d invited over were hers more than his. All the shapeshifter knew was that some were coming, that it was going to be a barbecue, that he took responsibility for any broken pottery and that he'd care for the organisation. And he had. Bought meats to roast on the grill, prepared noodles and potatoes as side dishes, a salad if anyone wanted, baked bread, acquired drinks (including mead, which thankfully wasn't too hard to buy around here). The only thing that still puzzled him were the marshmallows, supposed to be grilled on sticks over the campfire he'd set up to sit around. They looked a lot like pure sugar to him and he wasn't sure that'd be his taste, but it seemed fun to try.
    With things ready for the others to arrive, he awaiting them in the garden, sparing everyone the possible issue of Alex slamming the door in their face. Someone had to tend to the fire anyway. Already it was promising to be a nice evening, the air warm but not smoldering, cicadas singing in the grass. Peaceful. Hopefully it'd stay that way once the unusual group of Alex friends was assembled.

    (OOC: ready to go for whoever wants to be first! I’d say no post order, as long as it keeps moving)

    When Nico essentially first got the letter inviting him to a barbeque for Alex's birthday, he was shocked, mostly because he was unsure how Alex would have even allowed for him to even be on her property. Though he really wanted to do something that would end this stupid thing they had going on. Grudges were both their weak point it seemed.

    Stepping down the roads in Cascade Bay brought back memories, memories he'd rather stay buried. It hurt a little but not as much as it used to. The calamity was harsh on all of them. He spotted the address he was supposed to go to. Spotting the backyard area he opened the gate and stepped in. It appeared he was one of the first people here. Weird, usually he was the late one.

    He spotted Day and walked up to him. Taking in his surroundings right quick he waved his hand in greeting. "What's up, Daniel?" he managed a smile.

    Some distance away, Billy's first thought was, Well, this ain't no killzone.

    He'd given Nico a few minutes of a head start so as not to appear too cautious, at least not from a Greek demigod's standpoint. They were both a bit on the 'big kid' side, after all, so they could more or less look after themselves as long as they needed to.

    Once he passed through the gate to the Vales, however, he didn't think twice about like catching up.

    It might have been sunny and warm, but the first thing anybody might have noticed about him (Nico included) was that he'd chosen to wear black sunglasses and hide under an equally black umbrella. This was for protection from the weather more than anything, though, because he might have gotten a really bad sunburn if he hadn't.

    The second not-so-obvious thing, however, was that he'd brought a random spellbook to this little party.

    It could actually turn into a bow and arrow set when opened, but of course, nobody would have to know that unless some random monster happened to show up...so everything was good here, right?

    Getting Daniel’s texts a few weeks prior had come as a huge surprise. Especially when it was an invite to a birthday party, for Alex of all people. Pidge had sort of lost touch with the both of them for a while there, and it was super awesome to get the chance to reconnect. They were excited when they hopped through the portal to the Crystal Vales. Pidge didn’t often take the portals, usually choosing to fly in Green, but since they were staying in the Crystal Vales for longer than an hour, they weren’t taking the risk that the region might mess with her. They had been careful not to bring any other tech that might get f-ed up either.

    Stepping out of the portal, they headed towards the address Daniel had given them. They got there just as two boys they didn’t know were arriving as well. “Danny!” Pushing into the back yard, they waved enthusiastically, giving the weird guy with the sunglasses and umbrella a side-eye. “Where’s Alex?”

    Thor hadn’t really been planning on coming, at least not at first. Not because he didn’t like Alex, or didn’t want to celebrate her birthday with her. But because it’d barely been a week — or maybe two weeks? — since his most recent ordeal. He didn’t quite remember how many days it’d been, if he had to be honest with himself. All his injuries had healed, of course. The physical ones, at least. But he was still twitchy, still reluctant to look people in the eye. He couldn’t sit still, either; he kept wringing his hands, swinging his arms by his sides, or tugging on the hem of his shirt.

    But Loki had insisted on Thor coming along, and it was hard to say no when Alex was Loki’s child and Thor’s niece. Nephew. Nibling, depending on Alex’s mood. Thor really did want to see Alex again, not having seen her since... oh, months now.

    Norns, he’d really fallen off the wagon, had he?

    So it was that Thor, the God of Thunder himself, eventually arrived. Dressed in nothing but a simple pair of jeans and a bulky hoodie rolled up at the sleeves, borrowed from Clint. Without asking, but he’d put them back before Clint even noticed. And already, he noticed he was mostly surrounded by children.

    That made him feel a little better, a little less nervous.

    “Hey, everyone,” he greeted, forcing some cheer into his voice and raising a hand. “I take it you’re all Alex’s friends?”
