start and end (open, new character) in the same place
« on: February 21, 2018, 07:53:53 AM »
yes yes i know "lark how many characters are you going to put in this one group???" fight me i had 7 in blizzardclan back on ff and i roleplayed all of them at once

an enormous wolf with messy fur trudged up the mountain. it was not easy- she was old and it seemed every moment that she might collapse but she was also tough. she took a few breaks before reaching the top. fixing the scarf wrapped loosely around her head, she looked around for any sign of life. samara breathed heavily but she still looked enthusiastic to be here. "anybody live here or is this a ghost town?"

  /i once had like four or five characters in thunderclan at one time so i totally get it lol
  /uncertain tw: kinda-sorta reference to losing the will to live in paragraph 1?

  Age was such a strange and ill-defined concept, if you thought about it; most would assume that a seven-year-old creature would be more mature or cynical than a seven-month-old creature, when oftentimes the opposite was true. The seven-month-old could have suffered through so much more than the seven-year-old, lost so many more family members, been beaten about so many more times. To wit, Seija herself wasn't even three years old yet, and she had been completely and utterly exhausted of living up until a few weeks prior, when Sadie had contacted her through the dream world and Hydrus had returned. After what had happened with LithiumClan, it was difficult not to be tired of the world around her.

  Nowadays, however, she had a mission to look forward to, a loved one to stay alive for. While it didn't extinguish that lethargy that had plagued her for so long, it gave her a reason not to give in.

  Regardless, as the mutated canine approached, she could tell that age hadn't curbed the older wolf's enthusiasm. "Yeah, some people live here," she answered, "though I think most of us will be moving out soon." With a shrug, she continued, "What's your name, and what exactly are you looking for?" Most newcomers came either for shelter or to join one of the many new factions that had prepared to split off, but perhaps this one would have a different reason entirely- there was always the occasional surprise.

her voice was rough but she looked at seija with bright eyes. "well, kiddo, i'm here because i haven't really got anywhere else to go. i'm samara but my grandson used to call me sammy." mentioning him brought a slight glaze to her eyes as if she might cry, and she looked down for a moment, but she kept her smile. "i don't have family anymore but i was brought here, so i guess i don't belong to a merciless god."

  /sorry for the late reply ^^'

  "Kiddo?" Granted, from the newcomer's perspective, Seija probably did seem relatively young, but it had been ages since anyone had last addressed her as such. The fact that she was no longer stuck as a domestic mixed-breed with shorter stature than most Munchkins (Scry notwithstanding) probably helped with that.

  Not having anywhere else to go, though, she could definitely understand. Watching the elder wolf's expression change as she described her grandson, the mutated canine nodded silently. Hydrus was alive, which she could never be thankful enough for, but that still left Cosmicstar, Callisto, Milkyway, and so many others- and that didn't even include those who she saw as parents, or older siblings, or aunts and uncles, or even just close friends.

  The comment about a merciless god drew a soft, wry chuckle from the mutated canine, but she didn't comment further on that. While she personally had only ever seen the deities as malicious and selfish, if Samara remained simply ambivalent or even appreciative towards them, that wasn't really any skin off of her back. "Well, you're in good company- most of us don't really have much else to our name either," she stated finally, flicking an ear. "I'm Seija. There should be some food and water nearby, if you'd like to follow me." Unless Samara needed medical attention, but she wouldn't be the best judge of that, given her relative lack of medical training.

//don't worry about it!!

the cold air, light with oxygen, did little for samara's lungs. her voice became thin and strained but continued.
 "sounds like a good place to be. does this bunch subscribe to that clan nonsense or is it one big family?"

//super sorry for the super short reply but im exhausted
