Eden arrived with Cory, dressed to enjoy the pool and celebrate with all of the teams!

She wore the top in honor of Gren--not quite understanding the not-so-hidden meaning there. She made sure to point the shirt out to him!

Jewell stopped by The Line first to grab Kalamere (teammate, arm candy, and conveniently located on the way) before continuing on to New Haven for the party.

The Empress was quite the devil in the pool during any chicken fights (which she totally instigated) and seemed content to spend the rest of the afternoon sunbathing and drinking.

“You know, I had a pretty good season if you think about it. I was undefeated against duelers not named Kalamere.”

Gren had made it to the New Haven manor, wearing a Hydra Foils T-shirt and swimming trunks. He conversed with some of the other guests, before spotting Eden.

“Hey, there’s our MVP for . . . . . heeeyyyyyy . . . “ His speech slowly trailed off as he gave her T-shirt an apprehensive look. He cleared his throat and managed a smile. “Nice party, Eden, here’s to coming back next year and doing it all over again, right? Ah heh heh heh.” With a nervous laugh, he carried himself past and over to the Guerilla Gourmet buffet where he had his last hamburger of the summer.

Hope had played Hostess to the best summer shindig New Haven had this year already so this time she went for best Lifeguard award with the party. She didn't know what it meant but she did keep her hands full with frozen Margaritas throughout the day.

Mason and his assistant Tom set up in the back of the pool area.

In honor of all the Hydra competitors the food followed a theme.

For fists there was Barbecue "Bruised" Ribs and Mason was calling the sliders "Sweeps". The fist table also had some roasted corn and bowls of potato salad.

Swords was obvious. "Stabbed".

Any dessert had a touch of Magic.

For the adventurous...

Each colored dome held a surprise. A light touch of a spoon would shatter the shell and dusting the inside with flavor. One was hazelnut to flavor the chocolate mousse inside. Another added a dust of mint to the dark chocolate ice cream inside. Mason made sure Eden got one that had vanilla ice cream inside. The dust of the shell adding cherry coke flavor so each spoonful tasted like a float.

Aric and Lirssa would arrive and spend time mingling with everyone, while Aric would go back to the dessert table more than a few times. He'd at least wait fifteen minutes before getting into the pool, though! He would have to work off all those calories, after all.

The two would be sure to thank everyone for the fun season of dueling!

Eden was in love with the fancy dessert Mason gave her. Once she had finished one, she made sure everyone had some, saying over and over, "Did you try the special ice cream!?"

And since she had already gotten little end-of-season gifts for the Misfits and the Rock Hards, she made sure to get a little something for the Pains too. Handmade paper crowns for each of them!

Image

She bounced up and put a crown right on Kalamere's head! "This one is for you!"

Bailey had made noise about wearing a dress for the first time in ages, and by golly, did he put a dress on. It was long, black, sequined all over, jewel-necked and scoop-backed. He paired it with one of his favorite bags, a bright red mix of beauty and brawn that he felt matched him to a T. Some shorter red leather pump heels rounded off the look.

He made sure to say his hellos to his teammates and former teammates from Royal Pains, and drank one or two Badsiders during the course of the party. He probably had more than his fair share of the slider burgers Mason had made, almost entirely ignoring any other food that was on offer.

He made sure that before he left he gave Mason a big bear hug -- although he wasn't brave (or foolish!) enough to try and lift the mountain of a man up like he had with Gren during the final nights of Hydra.
