In the center of all the possible Halloween villas, there sits a grassy circle with a circle of stones to serve as seats, serving as some sort of meeting area or perhaps an incredibly disappointing public park. It is, however, fairly well lit, enough to see clearly what was going on around the circle, without the light being overbearing.
There is a sign near the circle that reads: "Suspicious Meeting Public Park." Near the sign is another, much more hastily constructed sign.
"TREAT LOOT CIRCLE
Come one come all! Show and gloat of the treats you've gained! Bemoan what you've lost! Greet each other as you rest between houses! Regale each other with stories of not-far-off villas! Break the space-time continuum to take a break from a house! Comment on the distinct lack of sparkly vampires! All as you please! So long as you do not cause harm or house-y shenanigans within this circle, as enforced by the magic modly ward!
((This place is not a house, but an in-between point for ToT Discussion, and perhaps to make a post to serve as an index for your goods and your happenings, what houses you've visited, etc. Spacetime is loose here, so you can show up whenever, so long as this space is not used to unfairly influence any ToT house rules and guidelines.
You can show off goods you've gained from a house that isn't technically a treat, so long as the house owner has permitted your taking of the 'treat'!
More technical guidelines may be added as needed.
Alright, index or chat away!))

'Night Owl' takes a seat on one of the stones in the circle.
"What a time so far! I've been so busy getting to all of my superpowered deals that I haven't gotten as far in trick-or-treating as I'd like. But here, let me show off so far what I've got and what's happened!"
They begin to lay out their treats and stories, saving the imagey ones for the end. They also occasionally and spontaneously appear out of thin air several times later to lay out more goods and stories.
-Gotten a costume idea from Owl-ween! -Given wisdom to the Owl! -Gotten a costume name from Killix. -Traded the following for the Midnight Carnival tickets: Bag of caramels, 8 pages of scrawlings, sets of earplugs -Spent the carnival tickets into making apple grenades. They cannot be reasoned with. Run while you can. -Gotten a Halloween decoration from Killix! -Gotten a book of laundry guides treasure maps from Liou's laundromat.
Lizica shuffles into the circle in her weird Artober/Phantom Tollbooth costume.
"My angles are many. My sides are not few. I'm the--" Here, she squints at a note inked on her hand and pronounces it very clumsily. "--small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron (is that right? I think the sides are off. close enough.) Who are you?”
....Anyway, for anyone curious, and in the name of carnival HONESTY, this is the list of names I put into the List Randomizer (arranged chronologically):
The owl nods knowingly at your costume, then considers your predicament. "I would suggest an owl, however I doubt such a small pumpkin could properly capture my grandeur. You probably need something small and less detailed for such a gourd."
The owl sweeps one wing towards the night sky. "I would suggest carving a crescent moon as the centerpiece of the pumpkin, and surrounding it with tiny stars made by poking it with a toothpick at random.
"And as an extra piece of advice, watch out for squirrels; they treasure the seeds inside and will tear open a pumpkin to get at them. If you so desire, after you carve the pumpkin you can set the seeds out specifically for the little vandals, they will surely appreciate it."
I carved the moon and stars, and also added a bat, and also an alien spaceship, because that's the kind of person I am. xP (We roasted and ate the seeds.)
Also, I loved all your owl art, too!! =D
And all of Killix's skeletons!! And all of Liou's laundromat patrons!! And Birdy's mad libs!! And this thread!! *ToT flail hugs for everyone before the event closes* <3 I had a great time. =D

Ah, that's so cool, Lizica, though maybe just tell the owl that the bat is an owl as well, the owl is kind of self-centered like that. But I like it as a bat, and the spaceship is fun as well. And thank you, I'm glad you liked the art!
A Skeleton Pumpkin, Killix? Surely the scariest thing of all this Halloween season.
Oh, did I say it was a bat? No no, it's definitely an owl, definitely, for sure. =O Thanks, June! =D I'm glad you like it. ^^
*goes to check Killix's update* Bahaha, YES, this skeleton pumpkin is glorious. XDDD (Its fiery eyes and expression are legit terrifying, too. XD)
Also, in the spirit of Gelquie's earlier post, Imma summarize my fun goodies from this year's ToT. =D Lizica has: - Gotten a really neat idea for pumpkin carving from June's wise owl - Received a very cool, pointy-toothed, inaccurate frog skeleton decoration from Killix - Gotten robbed by a carnival barker >( - Gotten to try out the ghosts' latest spa treatment/amusement ride in Liou's Laundromat, and witnessed many laundry marvels~ - Rediscovered The One Sock to rule them all, will maybe look into taking it and its mate to couples therapy if they want that
