One wintery New Years Eve 3 years ago, there was a girl who decided to take on the task of throwing a tea party for a group of gamers and friends. There were scones, there were cookies, and by God there were pinkies being held out. Later, she threw another tea party at a gaming expo for this same group of people. Though she thought that no one would be interested in it a second time, the sign ups exceeded her expectations - and she served tea to a full house!

The next year, the lost year, this girl disappeared. Some say she got married. Some say she ran away to Europe. In any case, the tradition of tea at EPIC trudged on in her absence - with a new and different spin on it. Some of you may recall Horrible Teatime (™).

Well, I have news for you, friends. I am that girl, and I didn't disappear. I've been here all along! I watched from the shadows as you took my beloved tea time and made it your own. How glorious it was to see the mantle picked up and ran with so creatively…

But now I'm back! And in the year of my absence, I have been honing my baking and tea mixing skills. My body is ready, and my spirit is willing!

20 spots, $20. Who amongst you will join me?

    Just to pitch this to anybody on the fence: Sitting down at epic tea a few years ago and having delicious tea while prime basically made me giggle like an idiot for 30 minutes was one of the best things ever. I'd say this is my favorite epic event next to the tf2 tournaments. Wish I could go!

    I think it was last year that we did Horrible Tea Time. Good times.

    How dare you... you never put your pinky out at a proper tea. If you did so, you may accidentally point at someone which is the height of rudeness. Such impudence.

    Friends, some bad news…

    It turns out that my schedule and budget will not allow for EPIC this year, and so, alas, I will not be able to perform my tea party duties. :(

    HOWEVER!

    If you are planning to make it out to ICNY, I would be more than happy to do one there as long as @Linc and co are cool with it. Just message me if you're interested and I'll start a thread for that closer to the day. A New Years tea party would actually be nicer as there will be less people and slightly less chaos.

    As for ICNY: In.
