Shiloh (Kia thru Snow)
Re: Happy New Year
Tue Jan 8, 2019 12:51am

Kia nodded a bit as she shifted a little to lay in against the pillows a little more, watching him quietly as her ears tipped back. “Why would anyone want to start anything here?” she asked. “This place… it‘s protecting all of us. Lord Traitorin and the others are keeping us safe from what‘s out there,” she reasoned. Though sometimes it was hard to rationalize the behavior of those who might be getting a bit twitchy with cabin fever. They had access to extensive royal grounds and gardens outside the main castle, even beyond the walls, about to where the boundaries of the light magic met the darkness, but few could go beyond that… and that’s why some got anxious. Especially with Traitorin putting restrictions on certain tribal practices under his roof… for the safety and wellness of all.

Pepper listened and watched him. He seemed happy and positive about it all, even if it was a tad overwhelming. She smiled and shifted a bit more on the bed, sitting there and still recovering from their last couple days together through that first real heat of hers. “They would, though, right? They were supposed to be with you, teaching you, all this time…” She heard a small chime from her crystal and reached over for it, moving a little mindfully, her body still a bit angry at her for all of the intense mating she’d done in that heated state. She picked up the crystal and laid across the bed, smiling, her tail wagging against her legs a bit. “Ray sent pictures,” she said. One of Patches sleeping in bed with the row of four high bassinettes lined up beside the bed with the quadruplets also sleeping soundly. “He says they’re all finally asleep again. They’re all so cute,” she said with a little whine.

Seda laughed a bit breathlessly and looked at him when he said that, shaking her head. “You… are impossible,” she said as investigating seemed the furthest thing from Ex‘s mind. Of course, she couldn‘t blame him. Being close to him was amazing, and she was loving every moment of it. IF anything had really been wrong, she was sure they’d have gotten a message about it… but nothing came, so… it seemed fine to let themselves get lost in each other longer.

Mace looked around and moved into his tent, closing the flap behind him, a spell going up the moment he did to make it more private and his conversation harder to hear. He set down the projection crystal and sat down in front of it. “Zlo encountered the Golden Princess. She‘s in Unkindness. I injured her, but she wasn‘t alone and escaped. She came out on her own in pursuit of Zlo. He didn‘t seem to recognize her,” he said, although Zlo also didn‘t attack her. Not in any way that would hurt her. He‘d grabbed her and threatened her only to let her go. Chaos wanted the Goldens found and exterminated. Soraya was valuable to them as a prisoner, and if not, then Chaos would likely have wanted her killed. Either way might draw them out of hiding. But she had escaped. Mace left out Zlo‘s hesitation, though, because he felt comfortable with the excuses the raven fed him. “We tested Unkindness‘ perimeter and learned of a possible in, though they do seem to be reinforcing the lanterns powers. Something is happening there, though we‘re not sure what,” he said, unaware that within a day or so, the Oracle would actually be leaving the safety of Unkindness with a caravan to go to Aeon and receive her full gift as she should have long ago.

Julep paused a moment, the Pomeranian‘s ears perking a bit before falling back shyly. She hadn‘t quite thought it out. Would it send the wrong message to invite him to her room, even if it was innocent? She was in his room, had been a few times now… and it didn‘t feel uncomfortable or awkward. She smiled and nodded, “Okay. Sure. I mean… I would like to hang the tapestry. It‘s so pretty that it shouldn‘t just be folded on my chair until someone has time to help me…” she agreed. Being a pom, be was on the shorter side, and so hanging the tapestry would require her to balance precariously on this piece of furniture or that piece. Parak would probably be able to do it just fine.

Yuna sat up in the gardens, butterflies fluttering down around her as she looked around. She got this sense that Altair was close. She looked back at Silvi and saw Altair sitting with her. The kitten smiled and got up, making her way over to the pair as they talked. “Alti!” she mewed, pouncing the prince and hugging him, her happy purrs starting up.

“I know,” Rain said, reaching over and placing her hand on Rocky‘s. She smiled. “There‘s always going to be some from both sides that will struggle with it for a while, but for the most part, the merge has gone pretty well. Combining the Beta system and the Council seems to be working. And replacing those who have taken issue with it has worked out for us,” she said. “The fact we have the gift of knowing Kahiri and Arielle will continue to rule together, just as you and Kahi do… it‘s reassuring, you know?”

Nascha was still at the spa with Mela. They’d parted ways with Sally after breakfast as the dove had more things she needed to do that morning, but now she could hear her crystal going off. “Hmmm… that’s Sally’s chime,“ she said as she picked it up, careful not to move her head too much as the girl was just about to start cutting her hair. “Sally, hey.“ she said with a happy little hoot. “Did you finish your song?“ She and Mela had just been figuring out what they’d do after… whether it was finding something else to do or go meet up with their husbands since they were likely to be off shift soon.

Ivy moved back over to the bed and climbed on to sit with Ebon. She leaned in and gave him a kiss before shifting to sit on her hip beside him. “No. The riots weren‘t the reason,” she said. “There was a breach in the barrier. La‘Shire was made from my Ancient‘s light… so her barriers and protections too are, at their core, part of Nour‘s magic. Since I can wield her gifts through the Heart… I could find it quickly and mend it, with Averie‘s help. I think my Ancient and his… might be something,” she said with a smile. It was a strange notion… to imagine the deities they honor here on this plane might be just like them in the sense of falling in love and the like.

Snow had reluctantly let Dia go on her own after word of Traitorin came around. Her friend had been so upset, but insisted she needed some time to herself to sort through all of what she’d been informed of with the whole situation. Snow respected that, but worried. She worried about a lot of things. Slate was back. Juli was back. She still didn’t know the Guardian magic had been passed to Rev safely. The Mist Gardens were close enough to home, she could feel clear and serene here. It felt like home. The purple and silver-tipped grass, now blossoms and star flowers. The whimsically twisted white willow trees and the stream and small waterfall making that familiar and comforting sound… She sighed deeply, watching the iridescent mist drifting around the gardens, unaware that Kiyoko was on her way to poison it. The Mist could not be killed, but it could be weakened, and it would take Kahi returning to Far Mist to restore it.
