Shiloh (Twilight thru Eros)
Mon Jul 9, 2018 10:13pm

Twilight just hugged her nephew on her lap and looked at Acerbus. She took a breath and went to speak, "For a long time you were the only--" Her breath caught in a sharp inhale as she seemed to hold her breath in an attempt not to start crying. Sometimes it was hard to remember Twilight was still Twilight. She had a lot of innocence despite all she'd been handed in the last few months, despite being married and expected to handle all of the weight of being an Oracle without any of the proper knowledge or training. Jupiter was a blessing for her, even if he sometimes felt at a loss when she got this way, because there was no changing what she was. He was perhaps the only one who she let see her get emotional these days. She didn't like to burden her siblings with it. They had enough on their own plates and had spent most of her life looking out for her as it was. But in this moment, she couldn't seem to help being his little sister who needed her big brother as her eyes filled with tears despite her best efforts. "You always made me feel the most normal..." she said before closing her eyes and sighing as a tear fell free and splashed onto one of Lukken's ears. "I don't know if I can do this..." she whispered. "I need him to help me, because it's just too hard as things are," she confessed. The expectations were so high -- or so they felt to her -- and she couldn't rise to meet them, because she didn't know how.

Liora turned in the pen and sat back on her tail, looking out through the rungs of the playpen at Twilight, Acerbus and Lukken. Her little chin trembled and she let out a chirpy little yelp, as though she wanted to be out there with Lukken to help make their auntie feel better too.

Vera smiled when he commented about the portal. "No. It doesn't work that way anymore. A month ago, when Lady Judith or her daughter needed to be present to open it, sure, but... now there's some spell attached to it. Makes it a constant portal that will open or close as needed, but only between here and La'Shire," she explained. She knew plenty about it, because even though she was here, she did want to know she could go back if she needed to or wanted to, like tonight. She scuffed her feet against the planked walkway beneath her a bit, "So... think she'll say anything about us?" she asked him, meaning Gizmo. She had to wonder, because a thief tended to be a highly observant sort... and Gizmo, it sounded, was no exception.

Saffy smiled and turned her head to look over her shoulder at him. "Awww. I never pegged you for being such a romantic sweet talker before we started dating," she mused as she leaned back into him a bit, bringing her hands up to gently hold onto his arms around her. "To be honest, we were never apart that much as friends either," she noted with a smile, albeit it was no secret any longer that Saffron had crushes on Duncan since they were kids. "I've been wondering... did you ever have a crush on me growing up?" she asked playfully.

Blake slowed up and let horace wander a little ahead of them, the boy taking in the castle, which was so different from Unkindness and the royal Oak. He placed a hand firmly on Serg's shoulder. "Serg. You're one of my best friends. I could never think less of you. In fact, I think it's incredibly brave to pursue a dream, and here, in this place, you can obtain it. I admire that and I certainly don't fault you for it. I'm happy for you and for Nascha. I have a feeling she's eager to share your dream with you. If she wasn't, you wouldn't be doing it," he noted, knowingly. After all, Blake was a married dragon too, and he knew well how those things worked. "Crap, the kid already turned the corner. Come on. If I lose Horace in this place, Mela will flog me."

Juno nodded a bit as Torin mentioned them going over and seeing what Yuuri had planned for her... but then she paused at his next comment. She looked at him and then down a bit, unable to help but blush so deeply, impossible to miss it in contrast to her dark hair. "I... Torin..." she said in a whisper, likely to amuse him, since it'd clearly worked.

Sandy listened and her ears lifted as she smiled and suddenly pounced onto Panro again, cuddling in close once more and hugging his waist. "Good... because there's nothing I don't like about you either," she said, her purrs, which had softened when she sat up, deepening out again.

Garand stood and listened as Lana finished getting ready. "Hmmm... So it's like Elanoch," he said. "A dragon story... about a similar place where the things hidden in the shadows live. The Elves call it Roh. I think in their culture, it was a place created by Rohdorn, but... if such a place exists, I wonder if it's older than the Ancients themselves, like D'Jorin..." It was the magic of this world that bore the Ancients, who helped to create it and its many planes into something for the rest of them to live in... "Maybe they're not stories at all. Maybe they're all the same place and maybe it's real. We could ask it. I'm sure it would know," he said, meaning Tenebra.

Ikki nodded a bit when Fang said that and sounded remorseful for what happened. "Maybe she needed to feel that to find a happier endeavor," he said, wanting to be hopeful for Fang. "Maybe when you see her again, she'll be in a good place." He then smiled, "Ah, of course. Lana's boyfriend is one of the most restless and active knights around here. He probably makes her feel like such a lazy tiger," he joked, "of course she'd want him to study something that helps him slow down a bit," he mused. He could tease Lana, because he was like the big brother of the group and tended to help Fang look out for them all.

Eros landed outside the Crosswing Inn and moved inside. He could see Phere and Crys' auras together by the bar and for a moment he let his mind go back to his conversation earlier with Acerbus... He shook it off, though. He had a mission -- even off duty he seemed to find those -- and he looked in the direction of the deep violet, almost indigo, aura in the corner... aspects of it so unique to those hues he saw in Twilight's. He moved to approach Dimael, though Crys could easily cut him off to try to get some information on what was going on if she wanted to... which she probably did.

    Acerbus took a note that there wasn't much else to his son would say. He looked over, "Twilight..." He started lightly moving next to you. "I think he can help, Eros seemed to think he can do... more

            Acerbus wanted nothing more than to move over and just hug his little sister. He knew she had taken on some much and wished she had come to see him more. But, things kept them away. He turned hearing ... more

              Rachel smiled brightly, "Now that is more like the Koi I have grown to know." She said and moving to check off last few items. "And believe me I've been trying to get them to make new clothes for... more
