Now, this all started off innocently enough. While a stern and often uncaring boss, Stormcatcher was not unaware that his employees deserved a vacation of some sorts and after the... uprising last year.

This year, he had something more relaxed in mind. A desert beach party was practical, affordable, relaxing, and would require minimal maintenance. A memo was written up and sent out to the flight, and then to the inhabitants of Sornieth inviting them all to celebrate this year's Thundercrack Carnivale: a dessert beach party.

Wait, what?

As with most (all) 'situations' caused in Lightning, this could all be traced back to one single intern: Steve. Steve has been an intern for so long simply because he cannot resist making trouble at any given opportunity. And this? This was one he would be ashamed to pass up.

Apparently, Steve happened by the memo just before it went out. A quick flick of a claw and an extra 's' had the entire flight scattering about on not only an eternal caffeine rush but what could only be a pre-sugar high (or excitement). By the time Stormcatcher became aware of the proceedings it was too late and the flight was too far into preparations to be stopped.

A few months later, an edited invitation, and here we are.
Welcome to Lightning's dessert beach party!

There is a legend amongst the dragons who work in Tempest Spire. It's a story every new intern hears, and at first none believe it-- but word gets around, and strange things happen, and it's never long before they learn that the Monster of Tempest Spire isn't just some office hazing ritual.

A flash of brilliant red in the darkness. The evil glint of Lightning eyes under a desk. The absent click of nails long after everyone else has gone home for the night. Of course, nobody can say for sure that what they saw was Steve, but everyone wants to assume.

Steve is the bane of productivity under the Stormcatcher's watchful eye. He's fast, smart, and scarily nimble for a Ridgeback. It's general knowledge that he's male, and a few reliable witnesses claim he's red. Most of the workers absolutely despise him, but there's always the odd dragon who laughs at his pranks and appreciates the breaks in monotony he provides (though nobody's happy when he messes with the coffee). If a seemingly benevolent dragon is deemed trustworthy enough, they will be invited to join a secret organization known as the Cult of Steve. Though they have no direct contact with the dragon they idolize, they have pledged to help him in any way they can, and perhaps an eighth of the pranks attributed to Steve are actually executed by his followers.

Steve himself is something of a mystery. Is he a normal dragon trying to escape boredom? A spy from another flight desperate to disrupt Stormcatcher's offices? A rogue robot, programmed with considerable wit and poise?

Increased demand for desserts this summer has Lightning Flight pastry chefs turning to automation to fill their orders. With limited time to make special parts, they will need to be creative and improvise by using found objects.

Dragons of all ages and skill levels are invited for some XTREME Beach Volleyball, a fast-paced dice game mixing strategy, stats, and luck. Teams of two (choose 2 of your own or team up with a friend or pick-up) compete against Lightning's Finest AthELITES for a chance at pots of treasure and magnificent prizes. But watch out, the ball has a mind of its own! Plus fans (ARTISTS!) can get in on the action and show some team spirit.

The boss needs more interns! Unfortunately, due to the cost of this year's festivities, we have run out of funds to pay for intern training. The Boss is asking for funds in exchange for tickets to win amazing art and writing prizes. The Lightning Flight is working with the charity Pencils of Promise to fund the training of future interns!

Thank you to everyone that made this year's Thundercrack Carnivale possible, this would have been impossible without your input and participation. I know it was a bit of a struggle creating events and prizes that fit both the lightning flight and this year's theme, but you have all done brilliantly. Here's to hoping for a successful Thundercrack Carnivale!

Banners & Graphics: @CelestialBlue
I can't thank you enough, not only did you make the main banner, but you have also created so many additional graphics. I know time was tight, yet you pulled through. So for that, thank you!

Additional Graphics & General Art help: @catgame21234 @salticidae, @Krokmou, @cypris, @SugaywaraKoushi @Firra
Thank you for work on the stickers for the banners amongst other things.


@SugaywaraKoushi
Thank you thank you thank you for all your help and hard work. It's been a rough couple of weeks but we're almost at the end. I can't list everything you've done for me, as the list would run way too long. I hope the stress of this all has not discouraged you from running future TCC-related things. So thank you again, and let's hope all our hard work pays off!

Hosts: @cypris @SkyDagger @Arelia @Tsaiah @kirkfan2255 @Hanelli @Aeronaught @miirshroom @Firra @KalynaAnne @CelestialBlue @scaremongrel @Aethris @DeadlyInformant @SugaywaraKoushi @jaxstronomy @AristaHolmes @Sivi
For without you there would not be any festival! Thank you for all your hard work on each of your respective events, and I hope you've had fun planning your events, and will have fun running them. Thank you also for bearing with my endless endless pings.

And finally, thank you to all our donors, for helping get prizes for all the events.
