Warning: This may contain spoilers for upcoming novels. So readers beware.
Ellis, Quinn and Amory host the Halloween party because Ellis is obsessed with Halloween.
Quinn goes as Batman, despite everyone begging him to go as Link. He gets pissed about it.
Ellis is a witch. Ellis is always a witch.
Amory just steals his old costume from Cats. He sings snippets of it all night.
The Culliver twins go as the girls from The Shining. Crispin is the little boy who has Tony, the boy who lives in his finger.
Isa is a fairy.
The Jasper twins come as Hunter S. Thompson and his lawyer. No one gets it despite them constantly quoting Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Delia is a lounge singer.
Audie wanted to go as Gomez and Morticia. He and Calhoun both wanted to be Gomez and flipped a coin. Audie lost. He is sulking in a black wig but the eyeliner works.
What my characters did during the hurricane:
Threw an enormous party at the Culliver’s Tybee beachouse and got roaring drunk.
Henry and Wills = plastered
Henry’s BF Jax = plastered
Isa = plastered and draped over her gay boyfriend, Quinn.
Crispin = sober and only there because Wills insisted
Delia = thinks they’re all idiots. Comes anyway because of Quinn, Isa, and Wills. Lectures them all. Ends up hanging with Crispin.
Calhoun = too scared to come
Audie = lied to parents about staying at USC, stuck in Savannah with Calhoun’s Gran under the 9pm curfew, and PISSED.
Quinn = plastered and draped over straight girlfriend, Isa, probably insisting on playing a Cowboy Mouth marathon because of their song “Hurricane Party.” They get everyone drunk belting out “Jenny Says.” It moves into his dance party playlist, which everyone bitches over until they get super drunk and end up realizing that yes, they do know all the lyrics to “Ray of Light,” fuck you, Quinn.
Ellis = realized Quinn was a lost cause and made him swear not to drive in the hurricane. Told Quinn it was his own damn fault if his Stingray got messed up. Stays home, cooks, cleans, and worries about Quinn.
Lucky Jasper = really plastered. Pining over Delia and hitting on her in drunk, stupid ways that causes drunk, stupid Wills to intervene.
Thor Jasper = Lucky made him get plastered. Sits silently in corner, head in hands, and wishes for normal friends.
10/12: The Gamecocks Beat the Bulldogs in double overtime
Audie, the Culliver twins, Jax, Bastian, Isa, and her boyfriend Lochlan watch the game at Audie’s. Calhoun sits with his head in his hands — pissed Bastian drove down, because he hates Bastian — as they all scream at the TV and trash-talk each other. Georgia is expected to win, and the Gamecock fans are only watching because they all always watch the Georgia-Carolina game. But they squeak it out, and ridicule the Cullivers and Jax mercilessly.
“No chicken dinner for you tonight, assholes!” Bastian taunts.
“Shut the fuck up,” Jax mutters. He’s pissy because they’re all mad at him for eating all the nachos anyway.
