Solstice and Equinox Events

Twice a year the solstices and equinoxes can be observed around the globe. (Four yearly observations total, two solstices and two equinoxes)
Quirlicorns gain their magic from the sun and moon respectively and as a result can experience magic they have not yet earned and access their regional transformations during each solstice and equinox.  

Your Quirlicorn may celebrate their respective solstice (summer or winter) or equinox (spring or autumn), though please be mindful of your regions and what parts of the world are currently in Summer and which are in Winter.  For more information on what magics and transformations are available see our Regional Transformations page

Theme: Holiday Madness

Spring Equinox 2022 by Gr8ves

The Spring Equinox was upon the Quirliverse as Frysil was getting ready to start the celebrations.  Before he was able to however, Asani and Peabody crashed in, figuratively speaking, to take over the show.  
“Hey, it’s been forever since we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate an Equinox with others, do you mind if we scoot our butts on in here and take over?”  Asani asked the much larger deity quite casually.  
Frysil looked down at the new chaos god and smiled.  “I guess I could take this year off.”  “I’d be doing you a favor and this might be a fun way to breathe some life into Spring as well.”  he replied.  
The tiny deity, pleased with the answer, mounted their trusty steed.. er, cat.  
“You wont regret this, we’re going to have so much fun!”  Asani exclaimed to Frysil who swore he saw the cat wink at him.  
“Yeah, well just don’t do anything too crazy or Jagmeet might have my head.”  Frysil spread his wings and fluttered off to greener pastures.  
“You ready for some madness?”  Peabody asked his partner. 
“Of course I am.”  “Now let’s go find some Group Horses to wrangle into our plan.”  Asani already knew who they were going to enlist to help make this an unforgettable Equinox.  

Snake Eyes and Fiction were about to be dragged into something they probably weren’t prepared for at all, but the Entropy pair didn’t mind.  

“Are you sure we have to do this?”  Fiction protested after the small duo discovered his location.  “I thought I only had to do things for Anevay, last time I checked neither of you are her.”  He pouted.  
“Don’t worry my guy, she’ll love what we have in store for this Equinox so you might as well just roll with it.”  Asani said from atop Snake Eyes who clearly looked quite unsure about what exactly was happening.  
Beside Fiction, Peabody slid up to him gently rubbing on his legs like cats tend to do.  Once Peabody had his attention he whispered “I’ll buy you a new manga of choice if you go along with our plans.”  

Everyone knew there was no way Fiction could turn down a good manga.  These two tricksters certainly play dirty, but it got them their way as the stallion relented.  

“So, what is the plan?”  Snake Eyes asked from behind.  
“We’re going to celebrate every holiday!”  Asani replied cheerfully.  
“Every holiday?” Fiction raised a brow in confusion.  
“Yes, every holiday.”  “All at once.”  “Today!”  Peabody replied.  

Asani was absolutely beaming with excitement it almost seemed as if some of their excitement was rubbing off on poor Snake Eyes who had begun tapping his feet with excited pitter patters.  
Fiction rolled his eyes but forged ahead with dreams of new manga in his sight.  

“This is going to be so much fun!”  Asani squealed.
