02:46 pm - Christmas gifts
((Will be backdated sometime in the near future))

Connor's been working at the forge from late summer when he got it up and running, all through the fall. It's kept him busy, not coming inside until late most evenings, but at least it does make him easy to find. He seems to find some quiet joy in experimenting and playing with metal, getting his hand back into the trade. He doesn't say much about what he's making, and mostly calls it mucking around, yet most of his friends will be getting gifts off the anvil this Christmas.

For Kai, along with baking supplies, peppermint bark, a luxurious scarf and gloves, and breakfast in bed, there is his ultimate triumph, an iron rose. It's not large, but it represents the height of his current skills.

For Duncan, there's a set of knives, practical enough to use in the kitchen, but also nice enough to hang on the wall.

Clark and April get separate gifts, but they certainly make a set. Each of them has a torc that ends in leaves, mountain ash for April, and oak leaves for Clark.

For Balthazar, there's a tin of good cocoa mix from France, and a cloak pin with celtic knots at the ends. He could probably get away with wearing it just as a brooch, but for all Connor knows, he's outdated enough to still wear a cloak.

For Jelani there's a small but elegant knife, with a short note to let her know it was the first one off his new forge. The first one he considered a full success, anyway.

Thank you so much for the gift. I can't believe it is Christmas time for you. The weather is so warm here, and we are pretty much enjoying summer.

I get a little more time. You're really sure you want me to give you away?

I guess not after you made me a suit that fits.

I can send it to you, so you can make sure that it is comfortable

Wedding clothes are supposed to be comfortable?

At least you can untie and unbutton for the reception

Only if you and Kai both say I can. I'll be fine. I'm just not made for formal occasions.

What the soon-to-be-wife said. Thanks a lot!

(I seem to keep accumulating accessories lately. Do people know something I don't?)

You're welcome!

It's not what it sounds like, honest.

Kryptonian wedding tradition is to exchange bracelets instead of rings. We're doing both.

Ohhh. They're both rings. The symbolism is what's important.

Yeah, symbolism is a big deal for a lot of traditions, I think.

Speaking of which, nice call on the leaves.

My mom's still got her old rings too. We got new ones for us.

I hope so. We nearly got kidnapped by the jeweler in order to get them in the first place. It'd be a shame if that was for nothing, right?

You know, I'm not asking.
