New Years Extravanganza!

Dear CBer,

It comes to us that 2023 will soon be here! What better way to welcome it in than a relaxing coastal vacation? Here at Turquoise Point in Mendocino, California, you will enjoy a night of fun, feasting, and relaxedness! AEs are allowed, but note that each CBer can only file once, so it is a strict or between AEs, characters, and yourself instead of an and. We are limited to nine spots. 

Buses will pick you up from the most convenient location on the North American continent--just close your eyes and enjoy the ride. The deadline for forms is 12/12/2022. Be ready, with vaguely formal, sleeping, and travel clothes as well as personal possessions, on the night of 12/30 for us to pick you up.
Here is the form:

So this isn't a ski lodge (no one gets murdered), more like a solo write involving a secret society of people who really love books and stuff. Post forms by 12/12, we'll start soon after and finish on 12/31. (My name, also, is not Ella Leith--it is a false name used solely for this story. You are free to guess me.) Note that it won't all happen at Turquoise Point, but, well, let the story unfold!

Name: Artemis

Age (above 6, below 19): 14

Pronouns: she/her

Location at which to be picked up, and therefore to return to: somewhere in downtown Indianapolis

Personality: INFJ-T; quiet, rather odd, bookish, an incorrigible logophile, artistic, ambitious, prone to sarcasm when I'm angry/annoyed. prone to anxiety & perfectionism, though I don't know how much it shows.

Appearance: tall and slim, with long dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, slightly pointed ears, light tan skin, and wire-rimmed glasses. I'm almost always wearing jeans and i'm not over-fond of dresses/skirts, although I will wear them on occasion; button-ups and doc martens are cool. also my gray elven cloak, of course.

Favorite color: purple

Fears: loneliness, being hated by other people

Description of any interests/obsessions you might have: I think it's fair to say that I'm obsessed with writing, and rather less so with art atm, although I would soon linger and perish if I was deprived of either of them. same goes for reading books, probably. I'm also a tad bit obsessed with the Raven Cycle and, currently, Downton Abbey.

Notes, if any: n/a

Packing list: sketchbooks, pencils and pens, essentials (toiletries, books, clothing), my fiddle, a Swiss Army knife.
