Over two decades have passed since Eira came home to find that everyone she loved was gone. Now, on a lonely, snowy Otemjarian mountaintop, a young, one-eyed woman and her trusty dog set out to fix things that were broken all those years ago...

11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 08:49 *watches her daughters, smiling a little, then sits down next to Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 08:55 *looks at his dinner* How is it?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.30 08:57 *smiles a bit, but doesn't say anything for awhile* It's really good.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 09:00 *smiles a little, then fiddles around with Jane's puppet absent-mindedly*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 09:04 *curiously pulls Jane's sketchbook towards her and starts looking at her drawings*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.30 09:11 *tenses up slightly for a moment, but covers it up*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 09:12 *flips through them at a leisurely pace**is about to get to her latest one when Eira and Jane arrive with dinner plates*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 09:13 *closes the sketchbook and sets it back down* Hi... *smiles gently at them* Looks good.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Mar.30 09:13 *grabs her sketchbook quickly and moves it by her own dinner plate*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.30 09:16 Well, hopefully it tastes as good as it looks. *smiles back a little and starts eating**she incorporated some of Aedona's favorite foods into the dish*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.30 09:17 *eats as well**so does Jane*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.30 09:25 *as soon as he is finished eating he moves his dishes to the sink and goes outside*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Mar.31 03:03 [I will be late tonight.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 04:43 *watches Saxon go, looking concerned*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 04:49 *says quietly and mostly to herself:* Where is he going?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 04:50 Er...I really don't think he'd go visit, uh...him...right now after everything that's happened...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Mar.31 04:50 Go visit who? Litho?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 05:02 Er--yeah.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 06:00 *gets up and goes out the door anyway, looking for Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 06:02 *spots him* Saxon?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:07 *turns halfway around* Hm?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 06:12 *is visibly worried* Where are you going?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:14 Nowhere. I just wanted to be outside.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Mar.31 06:21 Oh...alright... *hesitates awkwardly, then heads back inside*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:22 *she and
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:22 **she and Jane have finished eating too**is doing the dishes*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:26 *sees her mother come back in* Everything alright? Aedona: *nods a bit hesitantly*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:37 ~LATER THAT NIGHT...~
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:37 *Aedona and Jane have settled down to sleep**Eira is still up on her phone*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:51 *had been dozing off in a chair by his bedside. Awhile later he gets up and leaves the room. Changes to his avian form so he makes less noise and goes to find Jane's sketchbook*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 06:55 *the doorway to the room with with the plants and lizards in it is visible from where she's sitting*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:06 *with the
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:06 *she is mostly focused on her phone, however*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:09 *is careful not to let his talons click against the floor as he moves to where Jane keeps her belongings. Finds and flips through the sketchbook until he finds her last drawing. Carefully rips the page from the book, trying to be quiet.*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:11 *noticed movement in her peripheral vision and looked up, but she didn't spot Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:11 *hears a little bit of the ripping and looks up again*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:12 *leans over a bit so she gets a better view of the inside of the lizard room*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:12 *sees Saxon and gets up quickly, entering the room* Dad?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:16 *panics a bit and quickly tears the rest of the page from the book and takes off, flying down the hall. Goes outside and lands on the roof of the main house before changing back into his human form, holding the page in his hand*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:30 What the-?! *turns and watches him fly off down the hall, then quickly goes outside*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:30 *looks around* Dad, where'd you go?! What was that?!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:35 *looks at Eira from the rooftop but doesn't say anything.*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:47 *summons her wings and flies up to get a better look around the surrounding area**turns and spots Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:55 *stuffs the drawing in his pocket*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:55 *looks at him, confused and concerned, and then flies over to him* What are you doing?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:59 Nothing- just0
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 07:59 *-
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:22 What did you take from Jane?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:28 *doesn't respond*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:30 Did you take something from her journal or sketchbook?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:32 ... I was hoping you'd all be asleep..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:34 I couldn't sleep so I was on my phone...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:34 Dad, what's happening?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:51 Why did you take something from Jane?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:51 I... Just don't want her to worry..
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:51 Aedona..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:54 You don't want her to worry about what?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 08:54 What did Jane do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 09:12 *hesitates, then looks away*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 09:16 What did she do?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 09:18 *sounds a little nervous*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Mar.31 18:21 I don't blame her for anything. I don't even know what to feel, I just... *puts the page on the roof, gets up, then jumps off the roof*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:11 *picks up the paper and just stares at it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:17 *after a minute she turns and looks for Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:25 *jumps down and looks around for Saxon for a little bit**stops and looks at the drawing again for a minute, then uses her magic to destroy it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:27 *hides her wings and goes to Ahntor**heads to Char's building*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:28 *goes up the elevator to Mayhem's floor and knocks on his door*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Mar.31 20:31 *doesn't answer for awhile, but when he does he doesn't open the door* Who is it?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:31 Open the door.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Mar.31 20:33 *opens the door a crack* I don't think I want to talk to anyone right now, Eira.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:36 *barges through the door and slaps him*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Mar.31 20:37 *stumbles back and balances himself with a table. Breathes deeply* And this is why.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:40 What the [BLEEP] did you think you were doing?!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Mar.31 20:42 I wasn't MEANING to do anything.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Mar.31 20:44 Then why did you do it?!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Mar.31 20:47 I don't know. Maybe it's that my heart was faster than my brain.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:08 Well your brain needs to be faster from now on.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 05:10 It's not like what I was doing up until that point was trying to get this to happen.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:13 Then maybe you shouldn't put yourself in any kind of situation where this could happen ever again.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 05:18 What that may require is difficult, especially considering promises I've made. Now what's more important to me? My ability to uphold my word or what you say?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:20 What promises?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 05:27 I've promised to be there for her. I could go on living, doing my own thing, but if I am called I WILL show up.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:31 And did she call you last time you decided to be with her?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 05:33 No. She did not. But it's still a good thing I was so quick to find her.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:35 Well what's important now is that she has her family. I don't want that to be jeopardized ever again.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 05:41 If it weren't for me you probably wouldn't have her right now. You're welcome.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 05:46 What's that supposed to mean?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:04 *walks to his end table and opens the drawer. Pulls out the gun and places it on top of the table* I don't know, what IS it supposed to mean?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:08 ...She wouldn't.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:11 She almost did. I went to check on her because I wanted her father to rest easy knowing she was alright. She wasn't. What kind of person would I have been if I'd left her alone?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:15 ...Well she's...she's better now...so...don't let something like--like what Jane drew on her sketchbook today happen ever again.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:17 It's not something I'd ever intended to let happen again.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:22 "Again?!"
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:24 Yeah. Again.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:25 What the h**l are you talking about?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:28 How many times-?!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:35 Only once before, but it did not matter to me back then because it did not seem as though she'd get her husband back. I would have avoided such a moment if it weren't the case.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:39 *takes a deep breath**then says:* And all that happened each time was a kiss...right?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 06:43 O-... Of course..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 06:48 ...If it was anything more I would've hit you again.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 07:12 I'm fairly certain you'd know if it was anything more.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 07:31 *sighs, rather exasperated*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 08:07 Just...no more...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 08:13 You didn't have to come here to tell me what I already know.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 08:22 *looks at him for a few moments, then turns and leaves*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 08:22 *closes the door behind her and heads to the nearest teleportation zone**leaves Ahntor*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.1 08:37 *puts the gun away and goes to bed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.1 09:02 ~ABOUT TWO DAYS LATER...~
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 06:34 *comes into town with a pack strapped to his back*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.2 06:50 *has been worried about Saxon since he's been largely absent and has tried calling him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 06:58 *spends a considerable amount of time browsing the plaza*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:03 *is keeping watch of Jane as she plays with the kids*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:03 *spots Siegfried in the plaza when he returns but does nothing to interact with him, just goes back home and sits in his study*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:13 *while following the kids around from distance she spots Siegfried&
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:13 **
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 07:19 *doesn't spot Eira right away, but when he does he just smiles a bit and waves*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:33 *waves back, smiling slightly out of an effort to be polite more than anything else*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 07:38 *goes back about his business, which doesn't take much longer, ghe, finds a place to sit and watch the kids. Eats some snacks he bought as he does so*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.2 07:50 *passes by the study and sees Saxon**pauses a bit, looking at him, and then just moves on*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 07:56 *is playing catch with the other kids**misses the ball; it winds up bouncing over near Siegfried**goes running after it*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.2 07:56 *gets up and walks to the doorway*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.2 08:00 *has sat down in another room and is staring out the window*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.2 08:02 *stands in the doorway for awhile before going back to his seat*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:03 *leans over and pushes the ball back to Jane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:07 *grabs the ball**looks at him* Thank you!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:09 *smiles* mhm!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:10 Hey. You're not from here, are you? Not many people here have the ability to use magic.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:12 *turns and throws the ball to one of the other kids**her throw is pretty strong and accurate*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:14 *did that as he spoke**turns back to him and shakes her head* I'm from Auceaster.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:21 *shudders slightly* Auceaster, huh?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:29 That's pretty far from here. How'd you end up in this place?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:29 *nods* My Mommy didn't like it there so we moved here with her husband. I miss it sometimes, though.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:32 What do you miss about that place?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:33 Our house was wayyyy bigger.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:38 And I could be with my dads and Amy every day and play in the garden.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:39 Probably. This place is a lot safer than there, though.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:42 I guess...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:45 Find the right people and you can have a lot of fun exploring the place and maybe even leave the valley for awhile. This world is a lot bigger than one may think.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:50 My brother and sister take me on trips.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 08:51 How did you know about my magic??
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 08:56 That's good. And I have a lot of experience with sensing magic.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 09:05 You wanna see it?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 09:08 Yeah, sure!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.2 09:09 *walks over casually towards Siegfried and Jane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 09:12 *holds up her hands and summons some bright orange magic on them**the magic looks similar to neon orange sunset clouds*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 09:15 That's real cool! Wanna see something I can do?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.2 09:16 Yeah!!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 09:20 Alright, let's see what we've got... *looks through his bag and finds a small flower* Let's work with this. *holds the flower up. Soon silver and magenta threads form and wrap around the flower, first the stem, then the pedals*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 09:24 *moments pass and the threads burn off, revealing what almost looks to be a different flower. It's petals are an iridescent silver and the stem appears to shine* There we go. *holds the flower out to Jane*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.2 09:24 *petals
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 06:24 Whoa! *takes the flower and inspects it, intrigued*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 06:35 Pretty cool, huh?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 06:37 Yeah! I like it!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.3 06:37 So you've met my sister now, huh?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 06:39 Indeed I have. *@Jane* You can keep that. It's still just as fragile as a regular flower, though.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 06:47 Okay!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 06:51 So what's your name, kid?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 06:54 Jane!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 06:55 What's your name?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 07:03 Siegfried. It's a pleasure to meet you.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 07:35 Where are you from?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 07:38 I was born and raised here in this valley.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 07:44 Oh...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 07:44 *turns a little, gesturing towards the other kids* My friends said that you're super cool.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 07:54 Oh, I'm probably not as cool as they say I am.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 07:59 What cool things do you do?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:07 They think I'm cool because I have some magic and I am always leaving the valley. Hey, you've left the planet. I'd say that's cooler.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 08:13 You've never been to other planets??
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:14 I'm basically just a privilaged human. I can't teleport or fly or anything like that.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:14 I just have a bit of magic
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 08:23 Oh...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 08:23 All of my family can teleport.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.3 08:23 I can't, but my Mommy said that if I get really good at math I can.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:25 It's funny. The powerful Surtil family got by without any magic. Imagine what they can do now that most of the family is comprised of mages with high IQs
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:25 *can't help but glance at Eira as he says this*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.3 08:45 *notices him glancing at her**crosses her arms* Oh, we don't live too differently compared to non-mages.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 08:55 Mages and non-mages envy each other. It's normal for such a thought to occur, even if we all live similar lives.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.3 08:59 I don't envy non-mages. I'm just stating fact.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 09:01 *smiles* I don't doubt that. You're not a typical mage. Most mages around here got their magic through rather unconventional methods.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 09:02 That's not to say I did anything to get my power. I did not.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.3 09:07 No, your type is something special. So much untapped energy, just waiting to be broken into. That's something you really should look forward to.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.4 04:50 *shrugs her shoulders* I dunno. Sounds like a way to get into trouble. I have enough things to think about as is.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 05:00 You gotta take risks sometimes. How else are discoveries made?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.4 05:50 True. But I'm really not in the mood to take risks at this time of my life. There's enough going on already.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 05:55 No one specified when.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 06:01 Just saying that a bird needs to be able to fly from time to time. A downed bird isn't has happy as one who puts their gift to use now and again. Still, it is great to have your priorities straight.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.4 06:12 *nods a little* Well...I hope I do...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 06:18 I think perhaps you should take some time solely for yourself sometime. Could be refreshing.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.4 06:22 I got a lot more of that than I needed once...I think I'm good in terms of that.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 06:27 I respectfully disagree. *@Jane* So, Jane, how old are you?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 06:31 *raises four fingers on each hand* Eight!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 06:42 Oh my. You're a handful, aren't you?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 06:47 Kind of.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.4 06:48 *nods vigorously*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 06:50 *chuckles* Wow you are surprisingly honest. Eight year old me would have lied through my teeth. I like that. You're a good kid.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 06:56 *smiles*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 07:01 Well, Jane, why don't you go play with your friends. I'm sure they are missing you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 07:01 *?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 07:01 Okay... *turns away, then turns back to Siegfried* You wanna play too?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 07:03 What are you playing?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 07:12 Catch! *looks back at the kids* Though...I dunno, they're doing something else now...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 07:19 Well find out what they're playing and I'll join.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 07:40 Okay! *runs over to them* What are you playing?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 08:15 Kid: Freeze tag!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.4 08:17 *turns back towards Siegfried* They're playing freeze tag- *the kid who spoke to her taps her**spins back around as he runs off* -HEY, I wasn't ready!!!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.4 19:04 That IS unfortunate.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 04:10 *stands up and tags Jane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 05:30 *starts running*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 05:30 You wanna play too? *looks up at Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 05:31 *hesitates a little* Sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 05:31 *runs after Jane*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 05:47 *takes a more casual approach to joining the game as he doesn't want to run if he doesn't have to*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 05:59 *narrowly dodges being tagged, laughing a bit*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 06:04 *the kid who spoke to Jane--the one who is "it"--chases around Jane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:05 *runs past Siegfried*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:06 *the kid runs past Siegfried after her**tries using Siegfried as a barrier, running around and around him and doubling back sometimes to avoid the kid who's "it"*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 06:08 Wait a minute, I'm not a shield-
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:14 *the kid who's "it" realizes that Siegfried is playing and tags him, then goes after Jane again*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 06:15 *clicks his tongue and sighs, smiling*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:16 *runs away**narrowly dodges the kid who's "it" and doubles back, tagging Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 06:25 Jane! *runs to a tree and jumps to a branch just out of reach, then leans down with arms outstretched*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:34 *runs over to him and grabs his hand*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 06:42 *pulls her up to the branch*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 06:45 *a couple other kids see what they're doing and try to climb trees, but they're too slow and wind up frozen*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 07:00 *chuckles* Pretty clever, huh?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.5 07:10 Yeah!!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 07:13 *runs over to the tree they're in while the kid who's "it" is after some other children* Mind if I join you? *climbs up anyways*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 09:19 What if I do mind?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 09:22 Hmm...then oh well. *smirks ever so slightly*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 09:37 *smiles* What's to stop me from... *holds onto Jane and shakes the branch*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.5 09:40 *holds on tight**is visibly a bit startled, though she sounds calm* Really, now?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.5 18:11 What? Having a bit of trouble?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 05:17 Er--not really.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 05:24 Good.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 05:25 I'd be a little disappointed otherwise.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 06:08 "Disappointed?"
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 06:29 *soon everyone is frozen except the three of them in the tree*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 06:43 *the kid who is "it" starts trying to climb up the tree*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 06:49 Nothing. I just like to have great expectations of people. Staying in a tree isn't too difficult when you're an adult. *backs up on the branch, away from the kid*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 06:52 Mmm hmm. *climbs up higher, managing to get over him and Jane* Jane, come here.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 06:53 *reaches up**Eira helps her onto a higher branch*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 06:53 Kid: That's not fair!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 06:53 Tagging me before I was ready wasn't fair! *sticks her tongue out at him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 06:55 *jumps off the tree*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 07:08 *the kid who's "it" goes after Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 07:25 *picks up the pace, but doesn't put forth a lot of effort to run*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 07:29 *she and Eira start getting out of the tree**jumps down boldly and goes to unfreeze the others*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.6 07:29 *the kid who's "it" freezes Siegfried and then runs and freezes Jane just before she reaches the others*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 07:46 *gets out of the tree, only to head back into the tree once she realizes the kid who's "it" is after her*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 07:47 *doesn't go too fast to give the kid a chance since he clearly has trouble climbing trees**gets frozen*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 08:00 Is that game?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 08:21 I guess that's the end of that. *the kid's start going about choosing who's the next person who's "it"*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 08:40 *goes back to retrieve his bag* I should be getting back home now. It was nice to meet your little sister. *starts walking away. Coughs a couple times as he leaves*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 08:44 Alright, goodbye. *turns towards him when she hears him cough, frowning a little* Er--hey, are you okay?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 08:46 Yeah. It's just a cough.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.6 08:56 ...Sure...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.6 09:08 I'm perfectly alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.7 04:49 If...if you say so.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.7 04:54 Don't worry. I know my limits.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.7 05:27 *nods a little* Well...see you, I guess.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.7 05:38 See you. *heads home, then to the lake with Wren, where they sit for awhile*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 06:32 *hasn't really moved from where she's sitting**is writing a bit*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 07:03 *goes to the room Aedona is in. Opens his mouth to say something, but ultimately doesn't*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:11 *knows he's there due to her peripheral vision**after he doesn't say anything for a little bit, she looks at him*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:19 *looks at him rather expectantly, as if she's waiting for him to say something*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:20 *well, expectantly isn't the right word (she's not excited or looking forward to it, but she is expecting him to do something)*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 07:26 *looks down and sighs* ...I'm sorry.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:29 *her tone is quiet* Sorry doesn't undo what you did these past few days.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 07:34 I know that.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:41 It's just...after everything that happened I thought you would...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 07:42 I guess I'm at fault for expecting better...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 07:52 It was selfish of me to do any of it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:03 Please...please try staying away from him...especially at a time like this...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 08:15 I'll try.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:19 *nods a little**looks out the window and sees Eira and Jane walking towards the treehouse* What time is it?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 08:19 I shouldn't have just left like I did. I just needed to process some things, away from everyone.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:29 *just keeps looking out the window**thinks about answering him, but decides against it* It's seems a little early for them to come back...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 08:31 There's still plenty of daylight.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:36 *It
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 08:43 Wonder if something came up? Maybe they just wanted to come home?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:51 Maybe...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.7 08:52 *she and Jane come up into the treehouse**Jane runs off to the lizard room* Jane wanted to check on her lizards and she's also very hungry.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.7 08:53 Well, you've fed her before... Eira: She wants something I never could make very well... *explains that Jane wants a Sahlemese dish*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.7 09:00 *leans back against the wall*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.8 05:07 Alright, I'll take care of it. *goes to get the ingredients and then starts cooking*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 05:48 *takes a seat and rests his chin in the palm of his hand*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.8 05:56 *finishes making the dish to the best of her ability with the ingredients available**calls Jane and sets it on the table**she runs over, her cloak laden in lizards, and sits down and starts eating*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 05:57 *looks at Saxon* Hey...is everything okay? *glances in Aedona's direction nervously*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:03 I think so? I'm not sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:04 What's going on?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:19 Disappearing for a couple of days might have given off the wrong impression.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:19 I was alone the whole time.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:24 Oh...she's...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:25 She hasn't been happy about your absence...I think that really did give off the wrong impression.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:32 *sighs*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 06:49 Maybe you should tell her that.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 07:03 Will she believe me? That I really was just wanting to be alone?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 07:07 ...I...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 07:08 *sighs and shrugs her shoulders* I believe you.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.8 07:08 But I know what happened right before you le-- *glances over at Aedona, who has started walking into the room they're in**cuts herself off*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 07:20 *clears his throat*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.8 07:22 *looks at the two of them for a few moments**sighs a little and just goes to pick up the book she had been writing in*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.8 09:12 Aedona I didn't leave the valley. There's a small cave system in the colder part of Urmukka. I stayed there.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.8 09:31 *pauses**doesn't turn to look at him* Why?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.9 02:22 I'm just confused with myself. Being alone usually helps me think.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.9 04:19 [I will be late by the way. I have some homework I need to finish.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.9 06:18 ...Oh...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.9 06:40 Sure. *flips through her book briefly, then leaves the room*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.9 07:16 *inhales deeply and breathes a heavy sigh*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.9 08:11 You think she...um...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.9 08:12 *makes her tone quieter* You think she believes you?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.9 14:31 I doubt it.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.10 02:09 [It's stormy out, so if I don't make it on it's because my power and/or Internet got knocked out.]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.10 04:51 *sighs*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.10 07:04 Oh well...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.10 07:26 "Oh well?" Surely there's more you can do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.10 07:30 I just don't know right now.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.12 07:23 4
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.12 07:23 [Oops]
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.13 04:37 *marks a series of trees ready to be chopped down in the valley, then returns to a small patch of flatland where a frame has been built for a small house*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.13 05:53 *starts running back to the treehouse entrance/exit* Eira: Hey, where are you going? Jane: Back out to play. Eira: Alright... *sighs and follows her*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.14 08:21 *spots one of Mayhem's marked trees* What's this? Eira: I dunno...somebody marked it. Jane: *sees another marked tree and runs over to it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.14 08:21 *follows Jane quickly* Er...Jane, we probably shouldn't be going into the woods.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.14 08:21 But I wanna know where the markings go! *sees yet another tree and runs over to it*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.14 08:22 *runs up to the tree and then looks around for other markings**sees the frame Mayhem built and then Mayhem himself **races over to him* MALAUCAY!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.14 08:23 *runs after Jane, panting a bit*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.14 08:51 *runs to hug him, colliding with him at warp speed*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.16 01:24 *smiles a bit* Hey, Jane.. I didn't think you'd come oit this way anytime soon.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.16 04:23 I followed the markings on the trees!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.16 04:26 *stops beside a tree about 20 feet away, catching her breath**just awkwardly nods in greeting*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.16 05:03 You did, huh? What do you think? *gestures toward the frame of the house*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.16 05:36 *looks at the frame* Cool!!...What is it?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.16 05:39 It's the beginning of a house.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.16 05:41 Really?!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.16 05:42 Are you going to live here?!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.16 07:30 Sometimes.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.18 05:41 Yay!! *hugs him tighter*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 05:42 ~SEVERAL DAYS LATER...~
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 06:02 *has felt well enough to sometimes resume some of the behaviors she had been using to try to keep Saxon and Litho apart**today is one of those times**she has snuck off to tail Saxon as he works*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 06:04 *has been called down to Stadtler for some work. He tries to keep himself fairly busy.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 06:17 *is in a building adjacent to the one Saxon is in, keeping track of him via his window while being very careful not to be seen*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 06:27 *is mostly talking with people and reading over papers set before him. After the meeting he packs up and leaves, carrying a small case with him down the street*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 06:29 *goes up to the roof of the building she's in and watches him from above and afar**is dressed differently/is not in her usual clothes to keep people from immediately recognizing her if they spot her*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 06:32 *heads to a shop and grabs something to eat. Sits outside to enjoy his food*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 06:35 *has been walking through the alleys as a fox, trying to track Saxon. He picks up the scent and runs over to greet him, changing back into a human.* Saxon. I'm so glad you're here.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 06:35 *sighs and leans back a bit, feeling sleepy*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 06:36 *takes a deep breath* What could you possibly want from me?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 06:41 *did that before Litho arrived**notices purple in her peripheral vision and perks up again*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 06:55 I need to talk to you.. *Saxon: There is nothing to talk about. You knew you did not have to do what you did. *Litho: I crossed a line and I can't stop thinking about it.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 06:58 Good. Think long and hard about what you've done. I do not want to talk to you. Just go away.
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 07:02 I don't want to. Hear me out. *Saxon: No. I'm supposed to be working and I should not be talking to you, nor am I in any mood to do so anyway.
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 07:05 You've never been this way before. Was it REALLY that big of a deal you? *Saxon: You keep hurting my family. *stands up* Go bother someone else. *walks away*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 07:07 *stays where he is, looking confused, then mildly irritated*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.18 07:12 *gets an idea, which makes him excited, so he turns away and walks toward the pier, away from where Saxon went.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 07:20 *has started going to follow Saxon, but notices Litho walking off*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 07:20 *is curious as to what he's up to, but doesn't want to take any more risks than necessary, so she goes off to keep an eye on Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 07:36 *goes straight to his next order of business*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 07:46 ~LATER THAT NIGHT...~
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 07:47 *has been contemplating what she saw and has been debating whether Saxon tried to ward Litho off or arranged something with him**figures there's only one way to find out*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 07:48 *stays awake after going to bed, pretending to sleep beside Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 09:16 *sits up eventually and puts on a coat and shoes*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 09:25 *senses his movement and opens her eyes a little bit, but doesn't move*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.18 09:32 I'm going to walk along the beach. I want to enjoy the cool night air. *writes down what he said in case Aedona was actually asleep and walks out the door*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 09:34 *makes sure he's out before sitting up and putting her shoes on*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.18 09:37 *quickly goes over and peers out a window to make sure he's actually left Urmukka*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 04:37 *not Urmukka, the hotel in Stadtler*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 05:09 *heads down to the beach and walks along the shore for awhile before heading to the pier, where he finds Litho* Why are you here?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:11 *has headed to the beach taking a different route**takes her time so that she doesn't risk getting ahead of Saxon and being spotted*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.19 05:11 I knew you'd likely come down here. Take a seat. *pats on the wood* I don't want to tell you again, just sit.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 05:13 *grimmaces, but complies, sitting down*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.19 05:16 What do you do when you break your own rules? *Saxon: What?! What are you getting at? *Litho: Just answer the question. *Saxon: I regret breaking said rule and do my best to make up for the wrong. Or at least that's the intention.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:17 *keeps to the trees on the edge of the beach, walking along towards the pier*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.19 05:18 I see... I do not regret the end result of what happened. I do, however, regret using the method that killed him.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 05:19 You're sick. It shouldn't matter what method you used, it was wrong nonetheless.
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.19 05:21 *shrugs, then leans back* How you stand the stinging scent of salt in this humid air astounds me.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 05:23 *huffs, irritated that the subject was changed on a dime* I don't have the nose that you do. The air here is pleasant. *Litho: You're crazy. *Saxon: Likewise.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:39 *arrives near the pier**sees Saxon and Litho and stares for about 10 seconds**then turns and runs away*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:51 *stops once she reaches the buildings**quickly contemplates what to do**tessers to Panthea*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:56 *has gone to her father's house since she has nowhere else to stay there (she has no money on her)**has started crying*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 05:59 *at one point she picks up and throws something--an intricately designed jug--in frustration**it bangs a wall and leaves a dent*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 06:00 *it also falls to pieces**pants, staring at it, then looks towards the kitchen*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 06:02 *walks into the kitchen quietly, her eyes locked on some of the utensils**hesitates, then takes a knife, goes to the bathroom, and closes the door*
5>Litho (Demon God), ??yo.2020,Apr.19 06:07 *turned his head slightly when Aedona ran away* I don't want to go back home tonight. That's a first. *Saxon: That's a LIE. You don't want to go alone. I'm not going with you. Really I didn't want to talk to you I just wanted to stare out toward the lab.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 06:44 ~LATER...~
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 07:01 *for the most part had tried to ignore Litho's presence until he figured it was time to head back to his room. When he finds that Aedona is gone he knows he should be more concerned, but he finds himself more irritable than anything.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 07:26 *she comes back to the hotel room a few hours later, after the sun has started to rise*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 07:27 *comes in quietly, rubbing her eyes**there are dark circles under them again*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 07:28 *is sitting on the bed*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 07:29 *looks at him, but doesn't say anything**just takes off her shoes and lies down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 07:29 *her expression is just that of tiredness and malaise*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 07:45 *Lies down beside her* I didn't know he'd be there. I'm sorry.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 07:54 *doesn't reply for a minute* This isn't going to stop, is it? *her tone is quiet*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 08:00 I want it to. I want my old life back..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:05 *nods a little, her eyes closed**falls asleep rather fast out of exhaustion*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 08:10 *scoots closer to Aedona and closes his eyes, but finds it hard to sleep*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:25 *wakes up a little past noon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 08:27 *has been out working since dawn*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 08:34 *comes back to the room with food. Sets it on the table and sits down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:36 *sits up**isn't surprised that he's gone**puts her shoes back on and looks through some of Saxon's things until she finds money**takes a little and heads out*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:36 [Whoops, nvm, I typed that all up before seeing your new post.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:36 *she was putting her shoes back on when he arrives*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:45 Hi...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 08:47 Hi.. I brought us something to eat. Nothing too special this time. I wasn't super hungry so I didn't get much.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:50 Thank you... *comes over and sits down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 08:58 *eats some of what he brought*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.19 09:04 I wish I could stay longer, but in about an hour I have a followup to yesterday's meeting.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 09:09 That's fine...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.19 09:31 I'll be fine...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 03:55 [I have work to do, so I will be late tonight.]
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 05:40 *nods*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 05:56 ...Maybe I should go home...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 06:12 Why do you think that?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 06:41 I keep laying babysitter duty on Eira...she has a life of her own...maybe I should go back and take care of Jane and let Eira do what she wants.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 06:42 There are other people who could watch her.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 06:59 I know, I just...I feel like I don't spend enough time with her sometimes.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 07:32 You can spend less time worrying about me. I was doing just fine yesterday until I found him again at the pier. Even then I mostly ignored him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 07:46 You could've walked away.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 07:51 If I'd done that he'd have lashed out. Better to listen to him ramble than get hurt.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 08:00 Surely there was some way for you to get away...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 08:22 I didn't want to risk anything. I held him to his word that he just wanted to talk while I did my own thinking.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 08:54 And how many more times will he just want to talk?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.20 09:01 Hardly any more. He'll have gotten over what happened.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 09:37 *nods a little, looking slightly disgusted*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.20 09:38 *looks down towards her lap, thinking deeply, though what she's really looking at are her arms*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 03:30 If you want to go home I won't stop you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 05:28 *turns and looks out the window* What do you want to do over the next hour?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 05:31 Stay here or go wait for everyone else.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 05:33 It's a beautiful day out...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 05:36 *looks out the window* It is.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 05:40 Are you sure there's nothing else you want to do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 05:46 I wouldn't mind going outside if I weren't alone. *looks at Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 05:53 I wouldn't mind either. *gets up and goes to the door*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 06:02 *gets up and follows her*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 06:11 *heads outside with Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 06:12 Any place in particular you want to go?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 06:15 Not really...I just want to walk...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 06:23 *nods* Alright. Lead the way.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 06:27 *starts walking**isn't aiming for any place*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 06:41 *finishes the walk by going to the building Saxon's meeting is being hosted in**it's about time for him to go to the meeting*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 06:53 I should probably go. Thank you for walking with me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 06:53 *nods* Goodbye.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.21 07:00 Goodbye. Love you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 07:07 *hugs him* Love you too
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 07:07 *.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 07:17 *heads back to the hotel*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 07:18 *after some thought, she writes a note saying that she's going home to look after Jane for the duration of the trip**leaves the note on Saxon's pillow and heads back to Urmukka*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.21 07:25 *spends several hours a day in Urmukka, working on his house*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.21 07:26 *now and then takes a look at what Mayhem is doing, but from a distance*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.21 07:39 *often visits Mayhem and tries to help him out*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.21 07:39 *though often she probably slows him down and/or distracts him*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.21 07:44 *upon coming home, she finds that Jane isn't around**Eira, however, is* Hey...where's Jane? Eira: She's with Malaucay. He's in the valley.
19>Rivkah (Human), 17yo.2020,Apr.22 04:10 [I have work to do, so I'll be late again tonight. XP]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 07:11 ~A FEW WEEKS LATER...~
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,Apr.22 07:13 *has still been residing in Urmukka, recovering**the Naedyrm did heal him, yes, but he still hasn't been entirely well**has tried contacting Rivkah and messaging her as much as he can*
19>Rivkah (Human), 17yo.2020,Apr.22 07:14 *has messaged him back a few times**has claimed that she hasn't entirely gotten used to intergalactic messaging and how it works yet, though this is a blatant excuse**has been spending more and more time with Oliver*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.22 07:16 *Aedona has been assigning more schoolwork to her**has been trying to shirk it or procrastinate by doing other activities--playing with the lizards, playing with the kids, going out to visit Mayhem, etc.**she has even tried to get Mayhem to help her with
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Apr.22 07:16 her homework, and perhaps Pierce as well*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.22 07:17 *hasn't spent much time outside of Urmukka in the last few weeks**has gotten a bit frustrated with her own work, as she hasn't felt the motivation to draw and paint lately**has taken Jane on flights around the valley and she still sees Amadeus and
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.22 07:20 Siegfried around, though she doesn't talk to them much (especially Amadeus)*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.22 07:21 *has grown increasingly concerned about Aidan's absence and has likely asked Saxon about it*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 07:41 *has been spending more time with Jane and monitoring Saxon on and off **she has tried to figure out why he's upset (as his behavior communicates this to her) and failed**has become increasingly agitated by this, but she has concealed it for the most part
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 07:41 **
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 07:47 *has mostly chosen to monitor him when she senses especially negative shifts in mood in him, such as when he seems very stressed to her**she did catch him going to meet Litho a few times, but she chose to do nothing about those visits**she hasn't even
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 07:48 mentioned them directly, though her expressions and mannerisms around him right after those visits may mean that he knows that she knows*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.22 08:41 *takes whatever paperwork and messages he has upstairs to his study*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.22 08:42 *he does talk to Raina sometimes whenever she goes to ask how he is feeling.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 08:57 *lets Saxon work for a while**as it gets late, she cooks some food for everyone**takes Saxon's plate and heads up to the study**knocks on the door*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.22 08:58 *doesn't answer for a minute* Yes?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 09:05 I got dinner.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.22 09:13 Oh, alright. Can you come in and leave it on my desk? I would like to finish this letter first.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 09:31 *comes in and sets the plate down on his desk*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.22 09:31 *turns to leave, but stops and looks at him*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.22 09:39 *focuses mostly on writing, but glances up for a moment*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 04:55 What's the matter?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 05:05 Hm? Oh.. nothing's the matter.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 05:13 *stares at him for a minute, her expression gradually going from calm to tired and irritated**pushes his plate off the desk**it falls to the floor, his dinner splattering**turns and starts heading back to the kitchen*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 05:21 *flinches when the plate shatters. Mumbles* I'm sorry..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 05:24 *goes to the kitchen to get something and tessers elsewhere*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 05:46 *finishes what he's writing, then starts cleaning the mess*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 06:26 ~A COUPLE WEEKS LATER...~
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 07:35 *is pacing about the back yard, but in a fairly casual manner. Much of the time he is watching the sky*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 07:46 *has been watching Saxon through a window for a few minutes**finally comes out into the backyard*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 07:55 *acknowledges Aedona, but mostly keeps his eyes on the sky*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 07:57 What are you looking at?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 07:58 The clouds, mostly.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 08:07 ...What are you thinking about?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 08:37 Several things. Where I am. What I'm doing. How different things could have been if I'd altered my choices.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 08:40 Altered what choices?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 08:54 There are too many to count.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 08:56 Which choices in particular are bothering you, Saxon?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 09:02 ... I wonder why I left the lab. Why I left the valley.. Why I left Earth. Auceaster.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.23 09:08 What is there to wonder about regarding leaving Auceaster?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.23 09:17 It's yet another place I don't seem to belong.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:02 You don't think that's a good thing?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 04:18 Not when it means I'm still somewhere I'm clearly not supposed to be.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:22 What, you don't think being here with your family is where you belong?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 04:23 Being here? Probably not.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:27 Where would you rather be then?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:27 Off with somebody else?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 04:28 That's not what I meant.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:32 Sure.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:33 Sure it's not, when you've barely said anything to me in weeks and you've lied in response to almost every question I've asked.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 04:40 It's difficult not to be irritable when I'm being monitored nearly 24/7. The stress surely hasn't helped.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:41 Monitored nearly 24/7?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:43 For this past month I've been monitoring you far less!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 04:45 Though maybe I shouldn't be offended...that's the least of the things you've failed to notice.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 05:01 I shouldn't have to be monitored. I wish you'd trust that I'd been trying. I can't go out to be on my own without the suspect of Litho being wherever I am.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 05:03 You've been trying and yet you've talked to him in the past month far more than you've talked to me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 05:05 If you'd rather be with him, then fine. Go away and get your head smashed in again! *turns and heads inside, slamming the door hard*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 05:10 *rests his head in his hand for a few moments, letting out an exasperated sigh, then pursues Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 05:16 *is on the other side of the dining room by a doorway**is leaning forward with her arm and forehead up against a wall*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 06:47 The last thing I want is to spend my days with an animal like Litho. I'd rather be amomg people who actually care.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 06:54 *sniffles quietly**her tone is dark* Well, it's funny how you keep spending your days with an animal like Litho.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 07:00 If I could change that so easily, I would.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:31 Would you really? *wipes her face*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:31 Would you really when you obviously prefer talking to him over talking to me?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 07:40 Of course I would. *steps toward Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:44 ...How many more?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 07:45 What?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:52 *whirls around, grabbing him by the collar of his shirt and throwing him against a wall, pinning him there* How many more are going to have to die before you stop seeing him?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:52 *started shouting once she had him pinned*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:53 First Avery and then my father and then who's next?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:53 How many more is he going to kill, Saxon?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:55 Should I go throw myself at him the next time you see him?! You've been so irritated with me, it'd be a win-win, wouldn't it?! *her eyes are filled with rage and tears*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:56 *so it'd
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 07:57 Or maybe I should've been the one to bring you your phone that you "accidentally" left behind. *she laughed a little while saying "accidentally", but there was nothing even close to amusement in her laugh* That would've saved a lot of time.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:01 You know what I hear in my head every time you get near me?! You know what I hear?!! I hear "He's friends with the man who killed my father."
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:02 And, oh, how I have tried to put an end to that. But that's one thought that I can't just repress no matter how hard I try!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:07 Seeing him wouldn't be painful if we were friends. You're sorely mistaken because I do not WANT to feel so dependent on him.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:08 My interaction with him feels like a necessity most of the time. Like it's something I have to do.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:09 Then if you're trying to hard just TALK to me!! Say what's wrong when there's clearly something wrong!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:11 *her shouting becomes racked with sobs* For the past few weeks I just wanted you to talk to me! I...I just wanted...*is breathless*...and you wouldn't...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:14 And I'm sorry. I'm not well and who knows I may never be again. I sure hope not, but there's always the possibility. Everything is just easier when everyone thinks I'm okay.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:15 *is talking faster now* It--it gets to a point where you have to regulate everything to where you have no idea who you are anymore and you just try to do something right and you try to help and you just irritate who you're trying to help--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:17 And then you think it's all your fault because you did something bad or you should've been the one to take the phone or you've been wasting decades of your life because it's not going to get any better or you should've or you should've or you should've--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:19 And it's NOT EASIER!! *yanks him towards her and then pushes him back against the wall* Everyone does not think you're okay! Stop pretending like everyone thinks you're okay!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:23 All of this could have been avoided if I HAD just gone back.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:27 Litho would have left everyone I cared about alone. He'd get me and you'd get Mayhem. Wouldn't that be ironic? That we both ended up with the Viscount who tormented us the most?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:30 *stares at him for a few moments*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:30 No, because I'd be dead since I'd be foolish enough to try to get you back out of there!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:32 I wouldn't need your help if I'd gone willingly.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:33 If you'd gone willingly you would've needed my help even more.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:43 I constantly ask myself "would I rather live with someone like Litho knowing my family is safe or stick around and take guesses at who he'll kill next?"
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:44 What am I supposed to choose?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:55 If you chose to live with him your family would not be safe because I would not be safe.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 08:58 True, I guess. *narrows his eyes* That is, of course, if you had no one else to turn to.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 08:59 ...I don't know what Jane said, but what happened meant nothing.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 09:03 Oh, and I'm sure you calling to him in your sleep meant nothing either. *mimics her* "Malaucay... Don't go.." *huffs* Yeah, that's normal.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 09:07 *is visibly alarmed* People dream about all sorts of abnormal things--C.J. once dreamed that she killed me and kissed Calvin. Of course it means nothing.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 09:07 *her grip on him has weakened*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 09:12 I'm not angry that you feel for him. I still don't know what I feel.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 09:13 I DON'T FEEL FOR HIM! *slams him against the wall again*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 09:15 ...I want to believe you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.24 09:19 I've never felt anything for him and I never will!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.24 15:20 What are you trying to spare? My feelings or your pride?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 04:11 The only pride I have left is in how my children turned out!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.25 04:43 I can't help but doubt that you feel nothing for him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:02 And I doubted that you didn't harbor feelings for Raina.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.25 05:09 It is a pride thing. Just as I thought. No I'm not going to be angry, nor disappointed. You'd rather take the truth to your grave and that's okay I guess.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:19 I don't feel anything for him. This has nothing to do with pride at all.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.25 05:29 Sure.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:33 So this is your excuse for how you've been treating me?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:34 Maybe I deserve it after what I put you through. Why don't you take me to get my memories analyzed, then, if you're so convinced that you're right?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:35 Come on, take me back to Vulkanisch. Here, I'll make it easy for you. *slumps down against him* This time you don't even need to knock me out.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.25 05:44 *wraps his arms around her. There's still an edge to his voice, but overall he's quieter than before* I am convinced that I am right, but I don't think I really care enough to look at your memories.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:49 *pushes away from him a bit violently, stumbling and almost falling, but catching herself on the dining room table**her expression is severe but there's hurt in her eyes*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:52 *looks at him for a moment, then just stares at his shoes* You're really stressed...why don't you just go do what you usually do when you're stressed and go visit your abuser. I won't stop you anymore.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 05:52 *walks out of the room*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.25 06:01 *sits against the wall*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 06:16 *paces around the house a bit**notices that Jane is gone and makes a decision purely out of impulse*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 06:17 *heads out of the house and, remembering a conversation she had with Eira, walks towards the area Mayhem is working in*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.25 06:25 *is working hard, cutting the logs he's supplied himself with*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 06:32 *hears him cutting logs before she sees him**once she sees him through the trees, she freezes*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.25 06:38 *Notices Aedona but keeps his attention fixed on his current project*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.25 06:41 *watches him for a few moments**then turns and tessers away quickly*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Apr.25 06:53 *doesn't respond*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 06:58 *had overheard some of the argument**she was intending to intervene until the subject of Mayhem came up*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 07:04 *she left the house after Aedona walked out**walks without thinking about where she's going and soon realizes she's going back to the lake*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 07:14 *sits down by the lake, her arms wrapped around her knees, and just stares ahead*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 07:22 *spots Eira by the lake from his window and soon goes out to her* Something's happened. What's wrong?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 07:28 *shakes her head a little*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 07:35 *sits down beside her* No, I won't make you talk about it. I simply ask out of an old habit.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 07:44 ...I just came here out of habit...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 07:48 Understandable.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 07:58 I didn't mean to bother you, I just...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 08:00 You've done nothing to bother me.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:06 *hides her face by resting her head against her arms*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:27 ...I'm scared...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:27 What do you do when you're scared?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 08:36 *picks up a few rocks and tosses them one by one into the water* It really depends on the situation.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:43 What do you do when you're scared of losing something?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:43 *glances up slightly when hearing the first rock hit the water, but otherwise doesn't change her position**sounds muffled*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 08:50 I typically try to fight to protect what I might lose.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 08:59 And what if it's impossible to fight whoever's causing you trouble?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 09:16 Then perhaps find a way to protect without fighting.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.25 09:24 And what if you don't know how to find a way?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.25 17:41 It's okay to ask for help, you know.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 04:23 *nods the slightest bit**sits there in silence, thinking*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 04:26 *after a few minutes she wipes her face and sits upright*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 04:41 Thanks for um...for your time. *gets up and starts walking away*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 04:44 I don't know what happened, nor do I need to know, but try to keep your chin up. I won't tell you that things will get better. It's a naive, futile belief. The best way to survive is not for yourself, but for others.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 04:46 I'm not saying to hide how you feel, though.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 04:47 *pauses, looking back at him briefly**nods and heads off, walking out of sight, creating a portal to the Rift, and stepping through it*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 04:58 *continues to sit by the water*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:00 *goes looking for Roffe*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 05:08 *has been talking to Corvis*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:12 *spots Roffe walks towards him*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 05:14 *turns slightly to Eira* - Oh. Welcome back, Eira.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:20 Hi...am I interrupting?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 05:22 A little bit. *Corvis: Of course not. *Roffe: What do you need?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:27 Advice, I guess.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:34 Something just happened and...I suppose I'm a bit scared for my family...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 05:36 Oh? What happened?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:37 My parents had a fight, though it's never been nearly as bad as it was before...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:43 *nearly this bad before...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 05:46 Hm. What would you propose I do?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:50 I want to put a stop to what's happening before it gets any worse, but I don't know how.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:52 They don't talk to each other like they used to, especially in the past month...I've spent time with them and I've tried accommodating their needs and I've even tried to arrange times where we all spend time together and it doesn't seem to be changing
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:52 anything.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 05:54 On top of which Aidan's suddenly gone and Litho only makes everything worse and I just keep feeling like there's so much more I could do...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 06:42 My question still stands. What do you propose I do? I won't make the decisions for you. It's your problem, you make the bigger decisions.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 06:44 I just would like you to give me some advice on what to do.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 06:59 It almost sounds as though they need counselling. Issue is finding a good counselor
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 07:13 *sighs* Same issue as before, then, right?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 07:13 It'll be nigh impossible to find one who doesn't think they're completely delusional...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 07:25 Without enough information I cannot say what's causing so much more tension than before.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 07:25 Otherwise I could potentially help
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 07:28 *opens her mouth to speak, but looks at Corvis and stops herself*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 07:39 ...I'm not sure if I want to get into the details here...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 07:53 I understand. *opens a portal elsewhere*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 07:57 *steps through the portal*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.26 09:13 *arrives in Kvetti**waits for Roffe to step through too*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.26 09:38 *follows Eira and closes the portal behind him* So..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 04:58 So...um...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 04:59 I didn't hear the whole thing, but I think my Mom was upset at my Dad because she got the impression that he preferred talking to Litho over her...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 04:59 And my Dad was upset at my Mom because--
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:13 Because....?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:20 *doesn't look at him while she says this* He thinks she has feelings for Malaucay.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:20 She denied it...vehemently...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:26 Does she have feelings for him? I know he certainly has feelings for her.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:27 *shrugs her shoulders, not looking at him*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:32 I warned Saxon about the possibility. It seems he was unable to use that knowledge to help his progress.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:39 *nods a little*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:40 ...She...she does have feelings for him, but she's been staying away from him...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:46 Yes. She wants to salvage her relationship. It still is possible but the question arises. Is it worth the trouble? It's not my place to say, of course. That is their own choice.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:47 But at this point it seems they both have some issues to resolve. Or at least attempt to. I could talk to both of them, but without taking special measures they can easily lie to me.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 05:56 *frowns slightly* "Special measures?"
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 05:59 I cannot make someone confess.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:00 It would take help to pull such a thing off.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:04 "Confess?" Wait...what are you suggesting?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:07 Just tell the truth when I ask my questions.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:07 Both are prone to lying.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:10 What sort of help are you talking about getting?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:16 Something or someone who can make them answer truthfully without force. Of course I could use my own skills but I don't want to risk hurting anyone. Not physically of course.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:18 Well...maybe I could get Dad to answer my questions truthfully, but...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:19 Mom used to always tell him the truth...today she really didn't.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:24 I would like you to make many of the decisions here. I am willing to help, but I'll do just as you ask, not what I think is right. I'm putting you in control.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 06:24 So what should I do about this?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:30 I just...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:31 I want my parents to be happy together...but I feel like they're hitting a wall, especially if they won't tell each other the truth.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 06:32 I want them to tell each other the truth about how they feel, but I don't know how that can be done...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 07:09 It's difficult to do much when one is struggling as your father is.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 07:10 He probably recognizes the strain those reactions and feelings he cannot control are putting on his family, which likely only causes more stress for himself and, in turn, everyone.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 07:15 My mom often acts like she's okay, but I sometimes feel like she's in a similar place mentally...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 07:50 It's not going to be easy to fix any of this, I hope you know that.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 07:52 I know...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 08:34 If you want me to talk to them, then bring them to me. If not, maybe try to talk to them yourself. Just be careful. This is all a sensitive matter.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.27 09:08 I'm thinking I'll try to talk to them first...and if that doesn't go well I'll bring them to you...is that alright?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.27 09:40 Sounds good to me.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:13 *goes back home**looks for her parents*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:13 *finds Saxon in the dining room* Hey...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:19 Hi...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:30 I...I heard part of what happened...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:34 Do you need a hug?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:41 I don't know. Maybe?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:44 *hugs Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 05:45 *says quietly after a minute* I just...I want to talk to you about you and Mom...is that alright?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 06:34 ....I don't care..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 06:41 How do you feel about Mom?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 07:19 What is that supposed to mean?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 08:59 There's nothing hidden behind the question...I just want you to voice your feelings and thoughts about Mom.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 08:59 Truthfully.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 09:04 I'm just so irritated as of lately... It really started getting worse when she followed me to the beach. I didn't want to meet him there, nor did I want to stick around, but.. The tone of voice said I didn't have a choice but to sit and listen.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 09:06 "Couldn't you have just avoided him or walked away?" No. I couldn't. Not safely for me or potentially other people.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 09:49 *nods a little* I'm guessing this happened a while ago?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 09:52 If a few weeks is awhile, sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.28 10:02 Did you tell her you were irritated with her and why?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.28 18:13 No.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 05:52 How come? Did you want to spare her stress?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.29 06:40 I don't know anymore.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 06:55 ...I think you and mom need to talk with someone...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 07:31 We ought to find a mediator or counselor...you...I feel like you and her should talk, but not like how you two talked earlier...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.29 07:59 Would that even work?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:02 Given time and effort I think it would...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:04 At the very least it's far too early to give up.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:27 *spends a few more minutes with him, talking quietly about pros of getting help**finally sighs and gets up* I'm going to go now, I guess...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:34 I love you. *heads off **looks for Aedona and, after determining that she's not home yet, calls her*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:40 *lets the phone ring longer than usual**Aedona finally picks up*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 08:47 *sounds tired and a little bit annoyed* Yes Eira, what is it?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:48 Can we talk face-to-face? Aedona: I'm not coming home if that's what you want. Eira: What--no, I'm fine with seeing you wherever you are...where are you?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 08:50 *is silent for a little bit**then states some coordinates and gives her instructions on where to go from there*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:52 Alright...see you there. *hangs up, tessers to the coordinates--which lead to a city in Otemjar--and walks along various roads until she reaches a bar*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:53 *is surprised at how desolate the city is--let alone the bar, which looks really nice**spots her mother up at the counter and sits beside her*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:54 *the bartender asks her what she wants* Nothing, thank you. Aedona: Get something. It's rude not to. *takes a swig of her drink*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:55 Uh...alright... *orders a drink and then looks around* Kind of empty...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 08:55 Not as many people. Eira: Why? Aedona: The parasite hit this country the hardest.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:58 Oh... *notices that Aedona is eyeing a group of men sitting at a table about 20 feet away**they are rambunctious and dressed in clothing with vividly colored horizontal stripes*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 08:58 They're loud... Aedona: Azahari. Eira: What? Aedona: They're from Azahar. *finishes her drink in one big gulp and orders another*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:00 *has kept her voice low this entire time* I've lost track of how many of them I've manipulated, monitored, and killed...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:00 You mean...during the war?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:02 Wouldn't mind another fight with them. Their tricks are d*rty, but so are ours. *slugs her drink*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:02 How much have you had to drink?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:02 Does it matter?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:03 Of course it does.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:03 *turns towards her* Eira, it's probably not going to affect my behavior or mental faculties unless I keep going at this rate for a few more hours.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:04 The bartender doesn't know that. He'll have a limit-- Aedona: This is the second bar I've been to and I already know which one will be my third.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:06 Now what is it you came here to talk to me about?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:07 I...I overheard part of the argument you had with Dad today...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:08 *sighs through her nose and takes yet another large gulp of her drink*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:09 I would like you to tell me how you felt about that and about him...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:09 *you feel
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:10 *her tone is a rather robotic* He's my husband and I love him and that's all you need to know.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:18 *sighs* Mom...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:18 I...I think you and Dad should talk to someone...like a counselor...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:19 *intuitively winces a little, bracing herself*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:19 Oh, so both of us are crazy and are making each other crazy now?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:19 No, it's not like that-
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:20 You don't have to sugarcoat it for me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:20 By the way, who told you to tell us that?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:21 ...Roffe...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:22 *nods a little and finishes her drink**winces at the burning sensation, shaking her head a little, and orders another*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:22 Mom, isn't this a bit much?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:22 Define "much."
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:24 If you continue on like this it's only going to make things worse.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:27 *chuckles slightly* "Worse"... *stares ahead, her expression intense and somber**has been barely audible to anyone who isn't right next to her, but now she begins to raise her voice* Yes, everything I've done over the past months has only been to make
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:28 things better, and yet things always find a way to get a million times worse! *by the end of her sentence she was shouting**throws the bottle**it hits a wall and is smashed into thousands of pieces*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:31 *everyone in the bar is staring at her, though she doesn't see them**tears start welling up in her eyes and she puts her head down against the table to hide her face*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:32 *stares at her mother, her eyes wide**hugs her slowly* I...I think we should go talk with Roffe...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:32 *is sobbing, though she's trying to be as quiet about it as she can* What's the point? I...I-I am crazy...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:33 No...no, you aren't... *quickly pays for Aedona and pulls her up**holds onto her and begins to walk her out of the bar*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.29 09:34 I...I...I--I... *gives into her crying as she lets Eira start to take her away* ...Look at me...I'm a [BLEEP]ing wreck...there isn't any point...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.29 09:36 Don't say things like that... *escorts her out of the bar and into a small nearby street**sits down with her and holds her close, hugging her tightly*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.30 05:38 *hugs Eira back, gradually calming down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.30 06:43 *finally lets go of her* I'm going to go now... Eira: Wait, where?! Aedona: I'm just going to find a place to stay... Eira: Come to my house.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Apr.30 06:44 *hesitates, then nods* Alright. *Eira takes her to her house**it's a bit dusty and messy, as Eira hasn't been in it as much*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 06:50 You can take the bed. Aedona: Are you sure? Eira: *nods* I'm positive.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 06:52 Are you hungry? Aedona: A little, I guess... Eira: I'll make you- Aedona: You don't have to babysit me. *goes and just grabs something from the fridge*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 06:59 Ah... *just stands there awkwardly as Aedona begins to eat* Aedona: I'm not going anywhere. I'm tired.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 06:59 Alright...I guess I'll...go then...is there anything more-- Aedona: No, just...go.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:07 *hesitates, then nods a little and tessers elsewhere so her mother doesn't see her open a portal to Rift**returns to the Rift and looks for Roffe*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:10 [Well, actually, scratch that.]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:11 *she returns to Urmukka and looks for Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:37 *finds Saxon again* Dad?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:37 There's something I would like you to do...you don't have to if you don't want to...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:37 I would like you to come with me and talk to Roffe.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:48 Talk to Roffe? What can he do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:48 *is kind of on edge*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 07:54 I just feel like we need a second input and some advice from someone who can look at things more objectively.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 08:37 Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 08:50 *holds out her hand to Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 08:56 *reluctantly takes Eira's hand*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 08:58 *opens a portal to the Rift, then hesitates, looking at him* I...I need you to tell the truth, alright?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 09:01 He knows I can't lie to him..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 09:02 *nods a little and steps through the portal with him, closing the portal behind them*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 09:06 * doesn't appear at all enthusiastic about being here*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Apr.30 09:07 *holds his hand and stays close to him as she starts heading to where she last saw Roffe*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.30 20:11 So you actually managed to bring at least one of them. Figured Saxon would be the first to accept the proposal. He's got the initiative to better himself, even if he's not showing much progress.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Apr.30 20:11 ...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Apr.30 20:12 Don't get me wrong, I mean that as a total compliment. You could have easily given in and gone back, but you haven't. Good on you.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 04:21 *is visibly awkward*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 04:56 What are you going to talk to me about this time?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 05:13 We'll begin by talking about you. How you're holding up.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 05:14 I've spent my day alone thinking about how pathetic I'm being. How do you think I'm holding up?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 05:16 *looks down at her feet, not sure if she should be here*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 05:52 Just a question. No need to get riled up. I hear there was a fight. Why don't you tell me about that?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 05:57 *looks up, wanting to answer him, but feels like interrupting would be rude*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 06:06 It boiled down to my annoyance toward being followed and.. My lack of communication.. *Roffe: Why did you feel annoyed? *Saxon: ...I don't feel... trusted..
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 09:05 I see. It's also understandably difficult to trust you, though. You still find yourself at the very least subconsciously wanting to see Litho again, even after he's hurt your family yet again.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 09:06 You think I don't get that? I have been trying to keep myself from trying to see him. *Roffe: And you are probably getting better. I will not doubt your progress in that matter.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 09:07 As a suffering individual, you are slowly but surely getting better. However, it seems as though your family life has been hindered. I cannot say for sure, but that is simply based off of what I have heard.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 09:34 Things will get better as I do.. *Roffe: You'd best hope so.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 10:14 *has been waiting for a break or pause**waits a few moments**they're silent, so she finally speaks*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 10:15 Should I stay here? I would like to go check on Mom, but if you want me to hear this then that's alright...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 10:17 You are not required to be here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 10:23 *nods a little* Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 10:28 I'll try to get back here as soon as I can. *opens a portal and steps through it**returns to her house, where Aedona has finished eating and is just sitting on the couch with her eyes closed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 10:42 *says very quietly* Mom?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 10:47 I'm still awake. *opens her eyes slowly**the irises glow in the dark**so do Eira's; Eira turns the light on*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:00 You alright? *Aedona shrugs her shoulders**comes over and sits down next to her*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:01 Mom...I think you should come with me and talk to Roffe. I took Saxon to come talk to him and Saxon's finally being more open about how he feels.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:01 That's because Saxon can't lie to him.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:02 Well...nevertheless, I think that if you spoke to him and got a more objective opinion about things it would do some good--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:21 And why should I go pouring my heart out to someone I barely know?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:22 You don't "barely know" him--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:22 Perhaps, but I come close enough to that to have an objection to talking to him about sensitive subjects.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:43 ...You've kept so much bottled up, haven't you?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:43 Don't make false assumptions.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:45 Besides, even if I did I don't see the point in letting it all out to someone like him.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:46 The point is that he can help you and--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:47 *looks at her* The point is I'd rather talk with someone I trust.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:47 Well who do you trust?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:48 Well, among those who are alive I trust Jane and you...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:48 And not Dad?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:49 *hesitates*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:49 I trust him when he's clearly in the right state of mind...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:50 You don't really trust him, do you?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:50 I didn't say that.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:50 But that's the truth, isn't it?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:51 Why do we have to keep talking about him?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:52 *they fall silent for a minute**then she says:* I still really think we should go talk with Roffe... Aedona: "We"...no, you'll take me to be interrogated by him and then he'll ask me a million questions about Saxon...I don't even want to think about Saxon
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:52 right now...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:52 *looks at her again* What do you want to think about?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:52 Just...nothing, I suppose.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 11:55 *sighs and lays her head back, closing her eyes* Eira: Why don't you think about nothing, then? Aedona: I've tried. I can't.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 11:56 Maybe talking about everything that's on your mind will help...really, Mom, I'm serious. Come with me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:04 I'm tired.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:04 *sighs* Then sleep on it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:04 I can't.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:05 Then please come with me. We can help you, you just have to let us.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:05 I only want things to get better for you and Saxon...if I didn't think this would help I wouldn't have brought this up in the first place.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:06 Come and talk. You can walk away at any time.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:09 *sighs through her nose**then sits up, opening her eyes* Fine.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:10 *gets up* Lead the way.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:14 *gets up and opens a portal to the Rift, taking Aedona through it**leads her to where Saxon and Roffe are, but as soon as Saxon is visible to them Aedona stops*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:14 *keeps her voice low* You didn't tell me he'd be here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:17 ...Sorry...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 12:18 *turns away from Saxon* I don't want to talk to him...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:19 I...I guess I'll see what I can do... *runs up to Roffe and Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.1 12:24 She's not ready to talk to Dad.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.1 20:07 Whatever. I can go.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 20:16 Probably for the best. *opens a portal for Saxon and sends him away*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.1 20:47 *glances over at them and then walks over to Roffe once Saxon is gone*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.1 23:03 You can smell the animosity.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 01:13 *crosses her arms* What is it you wanted to talk to me about?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 03:08 You, mostly. How you're holding up through all of this.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 03:09 It's not easy living with someone who has feelings they cannot quite control, even if they know it's wrong.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 05:14 Why does this concern you? I'm not your blood relation.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 05:24 But Saxon is. So is Eira. And I am admittedly invested in this ordeal. You two seem so great for each other when you're both functioning like proper adults.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 05:36 And how would you say we're functioning now, then?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 05:38 Like you both have serious underlying issues.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 05:54 Well I can say that my issues are the lesser ones. I haven't been the one who's been increasingly ignoring those who love me.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:04 True. He is a liability, isn't he?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:05 ...I wouldn't call it that.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:09 Well I mean he has been directly responsible for so much all because of his inability to control his decisions, am I wrong?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:09 *or am I wrong?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:16 What are you aiming to accomplish?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:22 A greater understanding of what you two think and feel so I may determine the best form of help.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:22 And what makes you think you know what's best for us?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:25 Experience. A calm, rational mind.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:28 A lot of people have experience and calm, rational minds.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:35 Indeed, but most of those others would be asking the questions to find some dirt. I have no reason to distribute whatever I learn from either of you. The information is mine and mine alone.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:43 And how would I know that you're telling the truth?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 06:50 I have no reason to lie to family of family.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 06:57 *sighs a little*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 07:09 Alright, sure. What exactly is it that you want to know?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 07:30 For starters I just want to know what you feel as of lately.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 07:34 *hesitates*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 07:35 Frustration.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 07:38 That's it?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 07:47 I figure Saxon told you about the fight, so you should know I've felt angry as well.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 07:54 I have figured anger and frustration. I am only giving you the opportunity to express all you feel. Nothing said here will leave the Rift. At least I will not say anything.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 07:54 Feel free to be open.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 07:58 ...Well, I do not feel like being open.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 08:01 You could have chosen not to come.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 08:04 I mostly came for Eira's sake.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 08:18 And I am here because of her concern.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 08:52 I don't see why she's THIS concerned. Fights happen in marriages.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 09:36 In a functioning one it's normal.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.2 09:53 Define "functioning."
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.2 20:21 Both sides communicate to one another and are able to work out their problems. Saxon's communication skills have fallen for sure. As have yours, from the looks of it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:09 And what if communication isn't enough to solve some problems? What if the issue here is that certain actions need to be taken?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 05:16 Okay, so what actions would you say need to be taken?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:23 *hesitates, a complex array of emotions flashing in her eyes for just a moment, though anger was one of the more prominent ones* I think he ought to be more invested in his family...he's been doing the opposite.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:23 And I suppose I should change my actions as well and be more invested in him.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 05:27 He should be more invested in his family. What would that entail? Staying home more?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:30 Just paying some attention to his family would be a start.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 05:39 Has he not been paying any attention to his family?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:46 He has been paying attention, just...far less than before.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 05:55 Do you know why this is happening?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:56 *shrugs her shoulders*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 05:56 I have a lot of ideas but nothing I can really pinpoint as the reason why.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 05:57 *looks down at her feet, thinking*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 05:57 *doubt registered on her face before she chose to look down*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:10 So he just started shutting down, then?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:12 No...it's been happening for a while...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:19 Yes I figure he's had less inclination to interact with his family since Auceaster, but I mean him getting worse just happened suddenly.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:22 It wasn't really sudden...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:22 It started about a month ago, I guess...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:23 Oh?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:27 I don't see why you're pretending not to know what happened then.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:40 I never said I didn't know. I would like to know what you see in all of this.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:45 ...I see no point in this. This has gone nowhere.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:49 Has it? I wouldn't know, having only heard one side if this ordeal.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 06:51 If I didn't know any better I'd say you aren't as interested in trying to fix this as you used to be.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:53 *suddenly looks rather severe* You have no idea how hard I've been trying to help him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 06:55 *sighs, looking tired* I need to go back home. I promised Jane I'd help her with something.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 07:01 *turns to Eira* Open a portal.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:01 Jane will be fine. There are plenty of people to help her.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:02 Are you...um...nevermind, okay... *opens a portal to Urmukka**Aedona nods in thanks and leaves*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:02 *she opened the portal before Roffe spoke**Aedona heard him but chose to ignore him*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.3 07:03 *quickly walks away to be alone**sits down, closes her eyes, and breathes deeply for a few minutes**then gets back up and heads to the treehouse*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:06 *shakes his head*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:10 *her expression is a mixture of worry and disappointment*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:10 Did you...did you get anything useful out of that?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:14 No facts. Only theories.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:16 *nods a little* What are your theories?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:24 I'd rather keep those to myself for the time being.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:32 *hesitates, but holds back more questions and nods again* Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:33 What do you think I should do from here? Should I just...go home?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:37 You can do as you like. I will not do anything without being told to do so.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:40 Okay...thank you for taking the time to listen...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.3 07:50 Mhm
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 07:51 *opens a portal and leaves*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 08:23 *goes looking for Jane, half expecting Aedona to not actually be taking care of her**feels a bit guilty when she sees that Aedona has gone to tend to Jane*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 08:23 *decides to leave them alone**goes on a walk*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 08:43 *returns home after night falls**looks for her mother*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 08:53 *finds that she has decided to go to bed early**goes looking for Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.3 09:07 *is out walking on a cliffslide*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 09:22 *doesn't stay far from the house at first**thinks for a bit**recalls that he left some of his things in the house, so she figures he couldn't have gone too far**goes to investigate the cliffs he likes to walk on*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 09:22 *finds him* Dad?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.3 09:24 *stops walking* Hm? *looks around a bit* Oh, it's dark..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 09:31 That's alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 09:31 Are you okay?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.3 09:36 I'm as good as I can be after a talk with Roffe.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.3 09:55 I'm sorry to put you through that...I just wanted to help...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.3 21:23 It's not that bad.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 01:21 He's not as physically strong as others, but the way he carries himself and seems to stare straight through you can be intimidating.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 04:25 Yeah...I think he made Mom uncomfortable.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 04:28 He's not that bad. I don't think he's a bad person. He's just.. Intense. Strict.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 04:28 I'm usually used to people like that.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 04:33 She was trying not to show it,
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 04:36 It would be easier to just give him what he wants since he isn't trying to cause harm. He still does seem to care.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 04:42 *she said that before Saxon said "He's not that bad"*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 05:05 She really doesn't want to give him what he wants...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 05:30 I didn't, either. Given time and opportunity he can probably break anyone.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 05:45 ...I just...I want Mom to tell the truth about what she feels because I sense that she's not talking about a lot of things and it's a problem.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 05:45 But I definitely don't want her to be hurt by doing that...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 05:59 There's not much I can say. It hurts your pride to submit and open up.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 06:31 I know, but I just...I wish there was an easier way to help...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 06:43 I do not have any ideas.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 06:53 *sighs and nods a little**walks with him for a little bit longer and then says:* You coming home soon?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 06:58 Roffe might have something
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 07:17 What sort of something?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 08:04 (nvm idk what happened with that post)
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 08:05 I will in a few. I'm getting a bit tired anyway.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 08:12 [Alright, I take back Eira's response.[
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 08:12 *]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 09:04 Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 09:04 I'll head home now. Is there anything you need?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 09:06 No. I'll be fine. See you in the morning?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 09:10 *nods a little* See you in the morning.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 09:11 Goodnight.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 09:17 Goodnight. I love you. *starts walking back home*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.4 09:29 Love you, too. *continues his walk*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 20:36 *when she gets back to the treehouse she notices that Aedona is no longer in bed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 20:40 *looks around for her a bit**decides to wait near the kitchen*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 20:42 *sits down after a little while*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 20:54 *about an hour later Aedona shows up*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 20:59 *stands up and walks into the kitchen* Mom?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.4 21:01 *jumps a little**was in the middle of putting a knife away**sets it down quickly and turns around* E-Eira??
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 21:01 What are you doing?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.4 21:02 Just cleaning up in here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.4 21:03 ...I've seen you leave with a knife before. What's the knife for, Mom?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.4 21:06 I don't know what you're talking about.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 04:50 *starts approaching her* Stop lying to me, Mom. I know what I saw.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 04:52 *backs away from her a little**shakes her head* No, you clearly don't.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:02 *freezes upon noticing something**even though she can see in the dark, she turns a light on for good measure, as she can't really believe it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:03 Give me your hand.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:03 Why?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:04 *quickly walks up to her* Give me your hand!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:06 No! *puts her arms behind her back, but Eira reaches around and grabs one of them* Don't touch me! *uses the arm Eira hasn't got a hold of to firmly push her*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:07 *stumbles back a bit**grabs Aedona's hand, pinning it against her own chest, and then uses her (Eira's) other hand to yank up Aedona's sleeve*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:08 *gasps*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:08 No! *slaps Eira with her free hand*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:09 *lets go and stumbles back, instinctively putting her hand against her cheek*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:09 *pulls her sleeve back down**stares at Eira and then rushes over and hugs her, tears in her eyes* I'm sorry...I'm so sorry...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:10 I didn't mean to...I'm sorry...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:11 Please don't tell anyone...especially not Saxon or Jane or Malaucay...I don't want to worry them...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:12 Please...promise me you won't tell anyone...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:13 ...I will if you promise me you'll stop.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:14 I've tried to stop already multiple times...it's...it's why I was drinking...I thought if I drank enough the urge would go away because I know what worked once before...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:14 *that
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:18 Promise me you'll stop!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:18 ...Okay. I promise.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:19 I promise I won't tell anyone.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:20 But if you do it again I'm going to get you help and you're going to have to accept it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:21 *nods a little, not saying anything*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:23 ...I'm sorry...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:25 *finally hugs her back*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:27 I love you...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:27 Just...stop...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:29 *hugs her tighter*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:31 *they stay like this for a little while before Eira lets go and takes Aedona back to bed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 05:32 *stays by her mother to make sure she falls asleep**eventually falls asleep beside Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:34 *opens her eyes a little while after Eira dozes off **stares at the ceiling for about an hour before deciding to get up*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:35 *glances down at Eira**Eira doesn't move, so she heads out of the treehouse*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:36 *looks up at the sky**it's past midnight**walks to the pool*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 05:44 *has been at the pool for at least a half an hour. Sits in a patch of dense undergrowth, just out of view of the entrance*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:49 *comes into the cave and approaches the pool, not spotting Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 05:53 *through the foliage he sees Aedona, though he doesn't recognize her due to a lack of a view. Nevertheless his first instinct is to panic so before he can think he jumps and quickly starts rewrapping his arms and legs*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 05:55 *heard a bit of rustling from when Siegfried jumped**freezes and turns, staring in the direction he's in*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:01 *ties off the wrappings on his legs and rolls down his pantlegs, then finishes wrapping his arms*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:06 Who's there?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:08 *hesitates* No one ever comes here this time of night.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:13 I'm not originally from around here.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:19 That's a given.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:28 I suppose I
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:28 *I'll leave and come back some other time.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:28 *turns around and starts walking*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:28 I won't make you leave.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:35 *pauses*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:35 You don't want to see what I came here for.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:36 I've seen worse. Really I don't care.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:43 Nevertheless I came here at this time because I wanted privacy.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:43 I figure you did too, so I can just go.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:45 I came here because the waters help me, even if just a little.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 06:50 Then the reason you're here is more important.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 06:51 It doesn't matter whose reason is more important. *stands up* I would refrain from tainting the water so much, though.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:03 *looks a little confused, but turns back towards the pool*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:04 I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:11 You've been in here before. I've never seen you, but the ones who maintain this water have. You know how the water works. *tosses a clean wash rag to Aedona* Use it only once, then burn the rag. Give it back if you'd like, then I'll burn it. Soak it in
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:12 the water first. Not the most effective, but it keeps the water cleaner.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:20 *catches the rag* Thank you...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:26 *walks over to the pool and sits down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:28 *moves to dip the rag in, but pauses and looks back at him* I'd prefer it if you didn't look.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:35 There are a lot of things to be preferred. *sits against a rock and tightens the wrappings on his arm*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:37 *sighs through her nose and tries to angle herself so that he almost only sees her back**tucks one arm in close to her body while dipping the rag in with the other*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:39 *sets the rag down on her knee and rolls up the sleeve on the arm tucked close to her body, hunched over to further try to block his view**then rubs her forearm with the rag*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:46 *once she's finished with one arm, she pulls her sleeve back down, shoves her other sleeve up, and rubs the rag on her other arm*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:47 *glances up* You really think I'm that hypocritical? I have more pressing matters to take care of before focusing on whatever injury you have.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:48 I wouldn't let you see what I was doing, so why would I try to see whatever you're doing?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 07:52 I just don't want to worry some people I care about...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 07:54 Also hypocritical of me if I expect people to keep my secrets if I myself cannot keep any.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:02 Well, I apologize if I give you the wrong idea that I think you're a hypocrite. I do not, but from my experience a significant percentage of people turn out to be hypocrites.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:04 *finishes, pulling her sleeve back down* It's just that I have enough on my mind already and I don't need to take unnecessary risks and take on more worries in order to placate a stranger's ego.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:07 Thank you for the rag. I'll burn it. *gets up and starts leaving*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:07 *you again
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:07 You really aught to confide in someone.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:16 K
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:16 *pauses, seeming a little irritated* I really don't think it'd be worth it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:16 (whoops hit my tablet)
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:17 Yeah, it doesn't seem so, but suffering alone in the dark is arguably worse.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:23 I'll suffer under any circumstance if it means my family will be happier. *starts walking out of the cave again*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:24 Not if your suffering also brings them down to make accomodations.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:34 And that's part of why I came here. I came here to avoid that. Goodnight!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:34 *.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:35 I may not let you keep coming back. I'll not let the waters be abused in order to keep a secret.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:38 *stops and turns around* That's fine. I've got other resources.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:38 And you'll abuse those, too. It's an odd avoidance.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:40 Besides, taking into account how you know everything about me and what I used the water for, why do I even need the pool? I should just ask you how to run my life.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:40 *nvm the "Besides," her sentence just began with "Taking"*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:45 I know little about you but I do not need to anyway. No one comes to the water in secret unless they are hurt and want to hide something. Seeking some kind of healthy vent is better on the minds of everyone.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 08:48 Now you're assuming that I'm not already doing just that.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:53 It doesn't appear so, considering you're here now. I know what it's like to deal with someone who suffers in silence. He was a royal pain in the (bleep), so I get it. I'm not mad and I'm not exactly judging. More or less saying you've got some serious
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:54 walls built up, from the looks of it. Before long it will start to affect your family, whether you notice or not.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 08:54 Just warning as someone who gets it. Be careful.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:00 *wakes up and realizes her mother is gone**sits up and looks around, scared*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 09:03 You're welcome to just hang out. I'll talk no more about this unless directed to do so. You can talk about whatever.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 09:04 Or just sit in silence.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:06 *shakes her head* No thanks. I shouldn't have said anything once I was ready to leave, anyway. *finally turns and heads home*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.5 09:10 *finds a place to lie down*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:10 *instinctively heads to the kitchen and checks on the knives**hears Aedona enter and rushes over to her* Where have you been?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:11 I couldn't sleep so I went on a walk.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:13 *sees the expression on Eira's face and sighs* I didn't do anything wrong while I was away, Eira. It's alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:14 *looks at the wet rag* What's that?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:16 It's... *looks irritated for a moment, then just looks tired* I went to the pool and healed using this...I need to burn it...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:20 *looks a little confused, but is too tired to argue or interject* Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:21 I'll get some matches. *does just that and comes back to Aedona, handing them to her*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:22 Thank you. I'll be right back. Eira: No...I'll come with you. Aedona: Fine... *Eira holds onto her and they tesser elsewhere*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:25 *they land in the Panthean desert**it is a fairly chilly night**sets the rag down and lights the dry part of it on fire*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:28 *they stand there in silence, watching it burn for a while before returning home and going to bed again*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.5 09:28 *this time she manages to finally fall asleep while Eira does not*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:31 *dawn is eventually approaching and she feels exhausted, but has too much on her mind to fall asleep*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:32 *gets up, opens a portal to the Rift, and goes through it**rubs her eyes and starts looking for Roffe again*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.5 09:35 *is sitting in his home, half-dozing off*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 09:37 *checks for Roffe at his house, entering without knocking**finds him and hesitates, not sure if she should disturb him*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.5 09:41 *looks up a bit* Hm?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 20:22 Am I disturbing you?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.5 20:56 Of course you're not
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 20:59 I want to talk to you about Mom...she's...she's much worse than I could have ever guessed...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 21:00 So I think something more drastic needs to be done for her...I'm just not sure what to do...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.5 21:02 Define "drastic"
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 21:04 I mean...something more forceful, like an intervention.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.5 23:12 An intervention could be hard on her. You sure?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.5 23:19 Not going through with an intervention could be worse...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 00:41 I ask this all the time but what would you like me to do?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 04:42 ...Do you know of ways to make someone tell the truth without hurting them?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 05:01 Physically? Yeah.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 05:42 I want my Mom to tell the truth, but...she's been lying to me and Saxon more than ever before...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 05:56 I do wonder why she's been acting so secretive.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 06:02 Whatever's going on has morphed into something really bad...I want to help her but she won't tell the truth about what's going on.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 06:13 So you don't know what's going on?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 06:32 *hesitates* I have a some ideas, but I don't quite know...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 07:04 There are several ways I could go about this. What are my limitations and how will you get her here?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 07:11 Well...I want any kind of damage to be minimal...and I'm really not sure if I can get her to come here, but I can get her out of Urmukka for sure.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 07:12 "Minimal" is hard to achieve in cases like this.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 07:24 I know...I just...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 07:52 I don't want the truth to be forced out of her through psychological manipulation or anything like that...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 08:01 If there was a silver bullet that just caused her to respond to any question truthfully I'd prefer that...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 08:41 And where would you propose I go for that? Such product is hard to find
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 08:45 Maybe...maybe I could get it if you pointed me in the right direction.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 09:05 It would take time to locate anything of the sort
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 09:16 I think I can afford to devote my time to this...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 09:18 If you can, then do so.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 09:18 Besides, I think if we wait a little while there will be a better chance that I can coax her to come back to the Rift.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.6 23:29 Would the Urmukkan library have information on something that can make someone answer anything truthfully?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.6 23:45 It's possible.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 00:18 *nods a little, sitting down* Alright...perhaps I'll start there...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 00:19 Do you know of any other good places to look or do research in?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.7 00:32 In terms of research, labs and old libraries are the best bet.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 01:46 *looks slightly alarmed* So Vulkanisch could have something...?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.7 02:01 It could, but I would not recommend going there.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.7 02:01 I would rather not have my family any more connected to the place than it needs to be.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:21 *nods a little*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:42 I'll get started then... *gets up*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:43 *turns and starts opening a portal back to Urmukka*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.7 04:44 Good luck.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:49 Thanks... *heads back to Urmukka and shuts the portal*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:52 *goes to the library**looks around, feeling a bit overwhelmed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:52 *wanders around for a while and picks books that seem promising to her**sits down at a table with them and starts reading*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 04:53 *after a while she falls asleep, her cheek resting on an open book and her arms sprawled on the table and other books*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:20 ~A FEW HOURS LATER...~ *by the time she wakes up it's light out*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:21 *sits up, wincing and feeling stiff **stretches and slumps back in her chair**looks at the books, frowning slightly*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:22 *stares around for a while, thinking, and then gets up and heads out to look for Pierce*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:25 *starts walking back to the
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:25 *the Surtil house, but spots Pierce with Siegfried and Wren in a small park along the way*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:26 *approaches them*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 05:47 *looks up and waves at Eira* Hello!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:49 Hi. *waves and smiles a little, but her demeanor is tense* Hey Pierce, I need your help with something.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 05:49 However, if you're in the middle of something, that's fine. I can wait.
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:11 I am just spending time with my Siegfried and my sister, but I can help-
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:13 No, no. Pierce, you spend time with your sister. I'll help. *Pierce: You're the one who's been gone for the past few years. *Siegfried: I know. I live with her, though. You don't anymore.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:14 *stands up* So what do you need help with?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:18 Er...I'm not sure if you can help...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:18 It concerns the library as well as some sensitive matters...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:21 I know the library quite well, actually.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:24 Oh, alright...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:26 As for sensitive matters, I don't need to know the details.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:27 *starts walking back to the library**hesitates a little before gesturing for Siegfried to come along*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:36 *starts following, then stops and turns around again* I'll see the two of you back home for dinner. *turns back and continues following Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:43 *says once they're out of earshot:* I'm in search of a book that can tell me how to obtain something that can cause someone to respond to anything truthfully--without hurting them, that is.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:47 Ah, I see. There are a number of sources in the library that involve legends and theories regarding such a thing.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 06:48 Oh...which books are they?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 06:59 Some are childrens books. Others are like novels or general informational books. That's just what's available to read.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:03 *frowns slightly in thought* What, are there other things available there?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:05 Technically anything in the library is available to the public. Some books aren't in the same language , though, so mostly just historians go for those.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:07 Right...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:08 So would the books in the other language hold the information I need?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:12 It's possible. I don't know much about what's going on so I'll let you pick out the first books based on what you think might be useful. Luckily the covers have been refurbished and thus loosely translated.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:16 Alright. *they reach and enter the library*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:16 Lead the way.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:22 *leads Eira to a corner full of obviously old books.*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:27 *starts going over the titles and covers**brushes dust off of a few to get a better look*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:35 *picks out three books that appear more useful to her*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:37 *takes a seat and waits to translate*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:40 *sits down beside him and sets down one of the books*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:40 I really can't tell all that much from the titles, but this one looked promising...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:46 *puts the other two books she picked away from the one she set in front of him*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:46 *opens the index of the book she set before him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:48 Hmm... ancient legends?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 07:51 Is there anything in the index or table of contents about what I'm looking for?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 07:57 *looks through the table of contents* There are references to various gods who were once associated with accepting confessions. Probably talking about Hagan.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:09 Hmm...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:09 No, that doesn't sound very helpful...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:10 *pushes the book away, though she doesn't close it**sets another book in front of him and opens the table of contents*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:13 Not these stories, no. *stands up and walks over to the bookshelf* I guess it would have been better to start a little closer to home. *scans through the books and pulls a faded red one. Drops it on the table* This one could be of use.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:13 *Not those stories
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:15 I'll still look through the others, of course, but this is something worth looking into.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:20 Alright... *reads the title of the red book*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:22 *"The Immortal Phoenix" is what the title reads*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:24 *is a bit confused upon realizing that this is also likely about Hagan**opens the book anyway*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:32 It's a short story recalling one of Siegfried's adventures. The original Siegfried from the earlier days of Urmukka. I've always looked up to him, though he's long gone. Anyway, it's the story of how he managed to get the assistance of the god, Hagan, to
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:34 root out the ones among the government officials who were steadily corrupting the land.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:37 *skims over the book, then flips back to the beginning of it* Alright...I'll look into it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:40 I believe it's worth the read. After all you're ancestor is the one who wrote it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:40 *your
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:43 *looks up at him, surprised, and then checks the author*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:44 *there's a "K.S." etched into the book*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:51 I suppose the "S" stands for Surtil?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 08:54 Yep. The author is Kira. Kira Surtil.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 08:56 Huh...haven't heard of her...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 09:03 She's probably one of the oldest members of your family. Old enough that she was there to record Siegfried's stories.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 09:08 *nods and looks back up at him* Could you help me read this?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 09:16 Of course. Once again takes a seat*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.7 09:27 *opens it at the beginning*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 15:00 *translates the writing and reads the story aloud to her.*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 18:04 *the story tells of Siegfried, a gifted young Urmukkan man who strived to better Exocoellian society. He is trained by the brilliant red bird, Hagan, in order to act as her champion.*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.7 18:14 *once his training is complete, Siegfried crafts a tool which Hagan promptly blessed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 04:43 *listens, her knee bobbing a bit now and then out of impatience*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 04:57 *With this new artifact, Siegfried was able to subtly squeeze the truth from his targets and take down the criminals destroying the civilization he'd been working to save.*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 05:05 *sits up straighter, her eyes fixed on the book* Does this artifact exist--or, well, still exist?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 05:11 It hasn't been seen since Siegfried's passing.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 05:12 Does the book say what kind of tool it is or what it looks like?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 05:15 In the back there's a sketch of Siegfried wearing it. *flips to the back* It appears to be a necklace. Actually it looks just like the necklaces the doctors wear..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 05:23 *sighs* So there are thousands that look just like it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 05:25 maybe.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 05:36 Does the book say anything more about who owned it and its whereabouts?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 06:23 No. This story took place when he was still alive.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 06:24 He was the sole owner of it, I believe.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 06:30 Huh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 06:30 When did he pass away?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 06:44 A long, long time ago.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 06:45 Hm...if he was the only owner then maybe it was buried with him?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 07:27 It's possible.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 07:29 *sighs* I wouldn't want to be a graverobber...that's just...no...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.8 08:06 Agreed
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 08:18 *glances at the other books* Maybe there are other options...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 08:50 *sighs again, thinking hard, and shakes her head**is looking towards the books, but her expression seems distant, as if she's not really looking at them* I just--I don't know...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 09:04 It's important that I get something like that necklace fairly soon, but I really don't want to do anything like THAT to get it...I really appreciate you coming to help me, but...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.8 09:20 *pauses* I'm sorry, I'm just...thinking...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.9 05:47 Perhaps it's not in a grave...it could be anywhere, really...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.9 07:29 If you would like to think more about where the artifact could be, go ahead. I really should get going as soon as possible. I'd like to go back home and spend some much needed time with Pierce and Wren.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.9 07:33 Alright. Thanks for the help.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.9 07:40 anytime
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.9 07:42 I'm glad to be of help.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.9 07:48 Maybe...maybe we could talk over this sometime later, when you're not busy?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.9 07:58 Sounds good to me. Stop by anytime.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.9 07:59 *nods* Goodbye...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 02:32 Goodbye. *heads back home to help Pierce with dinner*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.10 02:57 [Word of warning: I'll be about an hour late tonight.]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 05:41 *thinks for a few minutes, then picks up the book and heads to a librarian* Excuse me?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 05:41 Can you read the old language?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 06:02 Librarian: I cannot, sorry. We mostly keep those books there for show. That language is almost dead.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 06:13 Oh...alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 06:24 Do you...do you know of any books with stories about an artifact that was used long ago to cause people to tell the truth?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 06:31 Librarian: None that are not works of fiction, I'm afraid.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 06:31 There are some books of local myths.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 06:50 Alright...would those books have anything on what I described?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 07:32 It's possible that such an item could be in a myth.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 07:52 Where are the local myth books?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 09:05 Mythology
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 09:07 Er--thank you... *heads to that section and picks some books**starts reading*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 09:39 *after a while she manages to find a book that does discuss the artifact*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 09:40 *all she gets is what she knows already--that is disappeared with Siegfried**gets back up and goes to the librarian*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 09:40 Hi again--sorry to bother you--do you have any books on the original Siegfried from ancient days?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.10 09:50 Yes, there are a few accounts. Can't say how accurate they are. Not many who can read those old books come in here to verify the history.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.10 10:00 Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 05:07 ~TWO DAYS LATER...~
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 05:37 *has been visiting various libraries on Exocoel and has also stopped by Emerson's place for further information**Emerson and Olympia could not provide anything useful, while Eira did obtain some new information at the libraries*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 05:48 *after hours of work she heads to the pub in Urmukka to try to wind down and clear her mind*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 06:06 *It's a crowded night. Sits on the floor in a corner with a bottle and a glass, rocking slightly, but intentionally, as if to the beat of a song*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:09 *makes her way over to the counter**sees Siegfried but decides not to disturb him**sits at the counter and orders a drink*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:09 *it's rather strong, but it's small*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:32 *finishes her drink**hesitates, then orders another**gets up and walks over to Siegfried* Haven't seen you in a while.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:32 How have you been?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 06:37 Not too bad this time around. Relaxing it a pain, but I'm getting there. What about you? How's the research going?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:44 It's going slowly.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 06:44 I dug up some interesting things from other libraries, but couldn't find much anywhere else.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 06:56 The story of Siegfried and his artifact is pretty skewed depending on where you are. I've read so many things about him. *smiles* Call me a bit of a fanboy.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:01 *shrugs her shoulders* It's hard not to be a fan of a hero you were named after, I suppose.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:01 And yes, many of the sources I found contradicted one another. The only consistency I can find is that the artifact disappeared with him.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 07:31 That's all I've ever known, too.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:31 The main area of disagreement between the various sources is on what he was and whether he died or not.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:32 If he did die then at least I'd know where the artifact is...it'd be wherever he and his family were buried.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 07:35 His family lived here, so they were all buried here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:47 Ah...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:47 *sighs* Dead or alive, though...either way I'm stuck.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 07:48 If he really was some non-human who never died I wouldn't know where to look for him. And if he really did die...as much as I need this, I don't think I'm willing to stoop as low as to...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 07:53 *nods a bit, then pours another glass*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:20 *sips her drink* Really, I'm considering looking for another solution at this point...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:21 *looks at her drink**chuckles a bit darkly and shakes her head, then sighs* Well...I came here to clear my mind...obviously I've failed.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:21 Oh well.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 08:33 If whatever you're wanting to do is that important... I know where his family is buried..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:46 ...Are you sure?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.11 08:47 ...Yeah... I only ask that the artifact be returned if it actually is there.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:55 I promise I will.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.11 08:55 I only need it for one thing.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 01:40 *sighs, putting the bottle down* Bartender! I'm headed out. *stands up* Let's go.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 01:41 *the bartender says goodbye and heads over to grab the bottle*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 05:09 *quickly sets her drink down within the bartender's reach as well as some money**follows Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 05:31 *the bartender stares at Siegfried for a few moments, then gives an annoyed smirk before picking up the drinks and returning to the bar*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 05:31 *smiles awkwardly at the bartender and picks up the pace to leave*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 05:37 *glances at the bartender, a bit confused, then follows Siegfried out*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:00 What was all the weird smiling about?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 06:15 Just a bit of a silent apology. He didn't want to speak up, but picking up my drink from that corner is something he'd agreed to do quite a long time ago. He doesn't clean up after everyone else like that.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:18 Oh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:19 "Quite a long time ago," huh? How long have you been around?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 06:26 He began working as a bartender, say... twelve years ago?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:27 Oh yeah...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:30 He's good, but I do miss the one before him...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 06:33 Ah, yes. That bartender used to let me study at the bar some nights. He'd sometimes offer me a soda on the house while I worked.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:36 Oh, nice.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 06:48 *leads Eira out of the main city, into an untraveled sect of the woods*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 06:49 *doesn't have much to say the whole time. Mostly keeps his focus on the area around him*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 06:57 *has gone silent, focusing on what lies ahead*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 07:31 *the Naedyrm around peer through the branches curiously as they near a thicker wall of bushes*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 07:40 *glances around, getting the feeling of being watched**keeps following Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 07:43 *pushes through a bit of a gap between two of the bushes, into a cleared area, complete with specially arranged flowers and small trees. In certain patches of flowers lie headstones with ancient writing etched into them*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 07:49 *looks around* So this is it...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 08:06 *pauses, frowning a little at the flowers**then walks over to see what the headstones say, but cannot read them*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 08:56 I can't read this...whose names are these?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 08:57 I mean--I figure one is Kira Surtil...I just don't know who's buried where.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 09:08 Kira and Siegfried's headstone is right there. *points at a decorated headstone amidst soft yellow and orange flowers* Siegfried wanted to always be by her side, even in death.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 09:11 *points up at the bigger headstone in the middle of silver and light blue flowers, between two trees* That is the headstone of Siegfried's parents.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 09:14 *nods**walks over to Kira's and Siegfried's grave and stands before it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 09:23 *looks down at it carefully**moves slightly, as if to prepare to do something, but then stops*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 09:31 *hesitates some more, then shakes her head, turning away from the headstones* This just...feels wrong...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.12 20:27 It will be alright as long as it gets returned
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 20:30 *nods a little**hesitates a minute more, then turns around and concentrates, putting her hands on the ground and closing her eyes*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 20:40 *creates sharp dark magic around the grave that digs down into the ground**forms a dark magic box that is at least 8 feet deep into the ground*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 20:44 *winces slightly as she lifts the dark magic construct up and out of the ground*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.12 20:47 *feels along the side of the rectangular segment of the ground she removed until she feels something harder**her fingers have come across the casket*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.13 00:44 *bites his index finger*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 04:08 *another wall within the dark magic box just above the casket, partitioning off the dirt on top of the casket**splits the dark magic box into two boxes, moving the top one (with the dirt on top of the casket in it) aside*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 04:08 *creates another
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 04:35 *is left with a dark magic box full of dirt and another box that is open on the top with the casket in it (as well as some more dirt underneath the casket)*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 04:47 *stares down at the casket, again hesitating**finally takes a deep breath and moves to open it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 05:07 *opens it and looks inside for the artifact*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 05:28 *reaches in and carefully takes out a wooden box that is in there with the skeleton**opens it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 05:43 *takes the necklace out of the box* I...I think this is it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.13 05:56 I think you're right. *lets go of his finger and wraps it tight between his thumb and middle finger*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 05:57 *puts the box back in the casket* I'm guessing I should put everything back...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.13 06:04 ...Please do-
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 06:08 *nods and closes the casket, muttering "I'm sorry"**uses her magic to set the casket and the dirt underneath it back into the grave**then sets the rest of the dirt back on top of it*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 06:18 *turns back towards him*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 06:22 Thank you for your help...I'll return this as quickly as I can, I promise.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.13 06:27 *nods a bit*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:17 *starts heading back to town*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:19 *says over her shoulder* Thanks again! You really helped me a lot.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:22 *returns to the Surtil house and looks for Saxon*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.13 07:24 *sits down beside the grave* I'm sorry we disturbed you. I'm making rash decisions again, but it's for a good cause, so that's alright, right?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:27 *locates Aedona first and then finds Saxon* Dad?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:28 I need to-- *lowers her voice* --I need to talk to you for a minute...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 07:43 Hm? About what?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:49 I've found a way to get Mom to tell the truth about things...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 07:50 I'm going to try to get her back to the Rift again, and I'm wondering if you want to listen.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 08:42 I don't know...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 08:43 Maybe it'd help if we both finally knew what the problem is.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 08:45 I a not sure I want to know what the problem is
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 08:49 *hesitates, looking at him, then nods a little* Alright...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 08:49 ...I mean I AM curious..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 08:52 I'm going to try to get her to come to the Rift tonight. If you don't want to listen in you don't have to.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 08:56 I might..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:05 Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:06 I'm going to check on Roffe and make sure he'll be ready...I'll be back soon.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.13 09:10 Okay.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:11 See you. *opens a portal to the Rift and heads to Roffe's house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:16 *finds Roffe* Hi...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:17 Hey. News?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:19 I found something that should work. *takes the necklace out of her pocket*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:20 *arches his brow* However did you get your hands on that?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:20 From what I've read, if you wear this then whoever you ask questions must tell the truth.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:21 *said that before Roffe replied*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:21 I had some help...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:22 One of the locals knew about it. I vowed to put it back where it belongs once I'm done with it, though, so I need you to promise me to give it back once all of this with my mother is over.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:24 Are you sure it shouldn't be returned to its rightful owner?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:28 Its owner is long gone. I'm just going to put it back where it was being kept.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:29 It's owner is Hagan.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:29 *-'
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:33 Really? Most of I read said that it was owned by an old hero that acted as Hagan's champion.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:33 *of what
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.13 09:39 It is still Hagan's power.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:46 It was...I found it with various memorabilia around the hero's grave, and I made a promise that I would put it back.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.13 09:48 We could tell Hagan about it later and I'm sure she could get it if she wanted it. But I have to uphold my promise.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 04:10 *sighs* Alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 04:48 I'm going to go see if I can convince Mom to come back here. If I can't I can probably convince her to at least leave Urmukka.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 04:52 Dad may want to listen--he's still deciding--so could you make two earpieces?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 05:03 Sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 05:10 Thank you. *holds up the necklace* Promise me you'll give this back?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 05:16 Yeah, sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 05:22 *nods and hands him the necklace*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 05:51 *gives Eira two earpieces*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 05:56 Alright...if I can't get her here I'll let you know... *turns away slightly and is about to open a portal**then hesitates* Um...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 05:57 *cringes slightly as she says this:* Once she realizes what's happening she'll likely try to leave...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 06:17 I understand that and I'll handle it.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 06:27 *nods a little* Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 06:28 Don't...don't be too hard on her... *opens a portal and steps through it, returning home*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 06:39 *closely examines the necklace before putting it on*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 06:41 *returns to Saxon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 06:41 So, are you...um...going to listen?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.14 06:59 Might as well.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:01 Alright... *gives him one of the earpieces*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:02 *hesitates, then hugs him**seems a little shaky* We'll fix things, alright?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.14 07:04 Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:05 *lets him go and smiles at him briefly, but there's nervousness in her eyes**heads off to find Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:06 *is sitting at a table with Jane, teaching her math*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:11 Mom?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:13 Yes?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:15 We need to talk. It's important.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:16 *sighs* Fine. *pushes a pad of paper towards Jane* Jane, do these problems.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:16 I'll be back soon.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,May.14 07:16 Alright... *frowns slightly as she begins to read the problems, itching her head*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:18 *follows Eira outside*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:19 *stands out on the back porch with her mother* Mom, you haven't spoken to Dad in days. This is serious.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:19 I want you to go back to the Rift and try again.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:20 I have spoken to him.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:21 No--I mean REALLY speak to him. "It's in the cupboard" and "I'm going to bed" aren't really meaningful communication.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:22 What use will it be? You saw what happened last time. We got nowhere.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:23 You were still angry then. You've had several days to wind down. I'm sure you'd get somewhere now.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:24 Look, I just don't want to talk to him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:24 I've interacted with his types before. It never ends well.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:24 And what are "his types?"
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:26 Types who are incredibly smart and ruthless and will do whatever it takes to get the information they want.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:27 So you don't trust him?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:27 Why am I obliged to trust him?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:27 For the gods' sake, he's the reason you're out of Auceaster!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:28 And I'm grateful to him for that, but just because someone can do you a great amount of good doesn't mean they're trustworthy.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:29 Well I trust him, and if I didn't trust him I wouldn't be asking you to go talk to him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:30 You're naive.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:30 I'm not naive, I'm trying to help you!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:31 If you want to help me then just leave me alone.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:32 And let you slice your arms open every night?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:32 *flinches, turning away from her* It wasn't like that--
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:33 I know what I saw.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:33 Maybe it wasn't every night, but even just once is too much.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:35 If you need to let something out, then please come back to the Rift. Don't do it like that.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:35 I haven't been doing it like that...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:35 Then show me your arms.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:36 *doesn't respond*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:36 Show me your arms!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:37 *her voice has become quiet* Open a portal. Let's just get this over with.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:38 *looks at her for a few moments, then opens a portal to the Rift*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 07:41 *goes into the Rift without looking at Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:41 *follows Aedona and closes the portal behind them**they go to Roffe's house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 07:54 Hi...we're back again...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 08:37 Welcome back. *is leaning back in a chair so the front legs are off the floor and the back is against the wall* Both of you.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 08:49 So...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 08:49 What is it you want to talk to me about now?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 08:49 *mostly sounds tired*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 08:50 Er--there's something I forgot about that I need to take care of, so I should probably go.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 08:51 That may be best. Thank you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 08:51 *turns towards Eira* Could it wait a little longer?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 08:51 I don't think so. I'll be back soon, okay? *Aedona nods a little* Bye. *opens a portal*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 08:52 Bye... *watches as she leaves and makes the portal disappear*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 08:55 Now that you're here, why not pull up a chair? Make yourself comfortable, you could be here awhile.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:07 *looks at him for a moment, then grabs a chair and sits down*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.14 09:10 *is back at home in Urmukka**puts on the earpiece*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:12 Thank you for cooperating there. I really do not wish to make this seem like an interrogation.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:13 I'd rather this seem more like just a talk than a lineup of questions.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:17 I'd appreciate it if we got through this in a timely manner. Being in the Rift makes me uncomfortable.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:19 I could take this elsewhere, but anywhere else is easier to just run off.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:21 "Run off?"
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:22 Its easy to try and leave when things get uncomfortable.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:28 *frowns slightly* I see...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:33 Now I have already spoken to Saxon multiple times. You can talk about hin for starters if you'd like. Or you can talk about you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:36 *shakes her head a little as if she's confused* What about him or what about me do you want to know?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:36 We had a bad argument the other day and we're still sorting things out.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 09:39 I would like to know your thoughts on the most recent events you say are being worked out. Go ahead and vent. I am here to listen.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:41 *pauses to think*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 09:41 *her voice becomes quieter* He had been talking to me less and less over the course of about a month. I grew increasingly frustrated at how he was shutting me out, that's all.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 20:07 You sure?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 23:05 *shakes her head* No, that isn't all...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 23:16 *leans forward, putting the chair's front legs back on the floor* Mind elaborating?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 23:19 Yes, I do mind.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.14 23:22 I figured. Let me rephrase. Would you please elaborate?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.14 23:29 I don't want to...but... *sighs* He keeps visiting Litho and it really...stresses me out...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 04:05 I see... He has been trying to visit him less, yes?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 04:53 I believe so...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 04:59 That's good to know. Unfortunately it hasn't appeared to be enough. It could still be quite some time before he is able to become who he once was. You understand that?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:00 Yes...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:15 *isn't looking at him anymore*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 05:15 Anyway, back to you. How are you faring? Dealing with the stress? Are you able to handle it professionally?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:26 I'm not faring well...I've tried, but I can't handle it professionally, especially when I'm on my own...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 05:29 I am going to assume you do not want to talk about that
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:31 *catches herself itching an arm**folds her arms and nods slightly*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 05:44 *raises his brow slightly* You know, Malaucay responded the same way when he tried venting about you. He couldn't talk about it either, but subconsciously reacted. *mimics scratching his arm.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:52 *avoids looking him in the eye and just responds with a neutral "Mmm"*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 05:53 So THAT'S how it is, huh? No wonder he was so uncomfortable.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 05:55 ...I know I shouldn't...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 06:18 Are you sure you're cut out for this? Can your psyche handle much more of this strain?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 06:25 I don't know.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 06:26 *finally looks him in the eye again* What's going on?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 06:47 My sincerest apologies, but there was little chance of you actually telling me the truth about anything. Therefore I got some assistance.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 06:51 You've heard more than enough. I would like to go home.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 06:55 I know you would, but there are still a few questions.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 07:06 *pushes some hair out of her face* I'd rather just wait for Eira to get back. *gets up*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:15 Eira will not come for you yet. Sit down.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 07:19 *had started walking towards the doorway**stops* I don't feel like it.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:31 There is nowhere to go out there. I do not wish to use any force, nor do I wish to keep using this borrowed power, but I will if I must.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 07:37 *takes a deep breath* I just need to go on a walk. *continues heading to the doorway*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:43 You are not to leave my sight until we are finished here.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 07:48 Why? It's not like I can leave the Rift on my own.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:49 The Rift is bigger than it looks.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:49 It is easy to get lost.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 07:52 And I figure you're currently not in the mood to walk?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 07:59 Oh I wouldn't mind a walk.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:19 Alright. *leaves the room and heads out of the house*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:21 *as soon as she's out of the house she glances behind her and takes a few rapid breaths as if she had been holding her breath**quickly resumes normal breathing*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 08:22 *follows Aedona. Removes the artifact and keeps it in his pocket* So you plan to just wander the void?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:25 I suppose so.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:30 *starts walking away from the main area*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 08:30 Come with me. *picks a direction and starts walking*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:33 *follows him*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 08:35 We're closer to the edge here. *walks through the dark mist wall that gives the area its open, empty look*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:36 *hesitates, looking at the wall* Huh... *reaches out to the wall with her hand and then goes through it*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 08:44 *outside the veil is an odd-shaped terrain composed of geometric formations*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 08:56 *stares at the outer Rift, visibly astounded*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 09:00 Not that bad a place, after all. As I said, the Rift is bigger than it looks.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 09:04 I wonder what made the terrain shaped like this...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 09:13 I've been searching for that answer for centuries.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 09:14 *looks at him for a moment, glancing at his chest**then starts walking*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.15 15:21 *follows along, just a few feet behind.* It's such an odd place. That's why I love it. Still. No source of light, but the area doesn't need it. I think it's beautiful.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.15 19:52 It definitely is an interesting place...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 00:43 The longer you stay, the more there is to see.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 00:44 It's even greater to see from above.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 04:07 *looks up, scanning for a pathway to the top of some of the taller formations*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 04:14 *holds out his hand* May I?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 04:22 *looks at him for a few moments, then nods a little and takes his hand*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 04:30 *Pulls Aedona closer and takes off into the sky as gently as he can.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 04:34 *holds on, looking down at the landscape**is rather tense*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 04:42 *climbs high above the walls* It's almost like a maze.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 04:43 Yeah...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 04:45 What's more fun, though, is doing this. *hides his wings midflight and starts falling*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 04:49 *gasps a little and holds on tighter, but remains calm*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 04:53 *rolls a bit in the air* I don't suppose you've ever free-fallen?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 05:00 I've done it plenty of times.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 05:03 Not like this, though. Unless your world is THAT special. *lets go of Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 05:07 *creates magic around herself and uses it to pull on her body upward, causing her fall to slow down to a safe speed before she lands on one of the formations*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 05:10 Awh. You don't need that. *slows himself to a stop, just hovering above the surface beside Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 05:11 What do you mean?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 05:14 *leans back and turns his back to her, but angles himself so he can still see her* I mean you never needed magic, nor did you need to touch the ground.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 05:19 *frowns slightly in thought, looking at him**then looks over the edge at another formation next to the one she's on; it's about a 30 foot drop down**jumps down, but doesn't summon any magic this time*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 05:25 Just tell yourself you're weightless.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 05:37 *closes her eyes in concentration, silently telling herself just that*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 05:41 Floating is such a relaxing experience.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:04 *when she opens her eyes, she is floating**flails around a little for a few seconds, struggling to get used to it*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:11 *manages to angle herself so that she can look out at the landscape without straining her neck and then stops moving*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 06:11 *floats over to her* You'll get used to it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:20 How--why does this work?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 06:26 This isn't a planet it's still just part of a void.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 06:27 The only thing keeping you on the ground is yourself.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:38 Huh...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:38 So could you do basically anything here based on belief?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 06:43 Not exactly, but gravity technically doesn't exist here.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:44 Alright...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 06:49 You can float around or just walk as you please.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:55 *nods and closes her eyes for a moment, then drops to the ground*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:56 *has told herself that she has some weight but not as much as on normal planets, so she can jump much higher than usual**makes her way up to the top of nearest tallest formation*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 06:59 *sits down with her legs dangling over the edge and looks out at the Rift*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 07:00 *lands on a small platform and raises it up to Aedona's level*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 07:04 *raises her eyebrows slightly*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 07:10 This place is a lot more manipulatable than it seems.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 07:17 Huh... *looks at the platform she's sitting on and silently wills it to be taller*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 08:09 *it gets taller until she wills it to stop*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 08:18 *continues to sit with her legs dangling for a minute**then tells herself she's weightless and pushes herself off the edge*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 08:21 *floats far above the landscape**looks down at it for a little bit and then closes her eyes*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.16 08:41 *stays back for awhile*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.16 08:45 *just stays floating for a while*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 03:41 *decides to keep his mouth shut and just enjoys the calm of being in the air*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 05:02 *after a while longer she opens her eyes and manages to pull herself back onto the platform she came from*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 05:18 *sits back down and stares out at the Rift, fidgeting slightly with her hands*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 07:12 *sits beside her* This is the real reason I stayed in the Rift. For the life of me I couldn't get my wife to come.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 07:20 Huh...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 07:22 *holds her hands together to stop fidgeting* Strange...this isn't that bad of a place...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 07:38 It wasn't home, though.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 08:02 I see...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 08:15 I had to wait to come here. That was alright.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 08:24 *nods a little*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 08:58 I really would rather all my family live here. It's a realm free to control. It's safe. However, I will not try to control their lives. Their choices are their own, even though I give my own input on them.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 09:26 You can't really blame us for not living here after everything that's happened...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 09:27 If I'd been here none of this would have been this way. There would have been more order.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 09:33 Perhaps...but it's too late now...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 09:54 Everyone can live wherever they want. I don't care. Whatever gives them the most fulfillment in life.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 10:08 *nods a little again*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.17 16:22 So I want to ask. Do you feel a sense of fulfillment trying to stay with Saxon? I know you love him and I'd want nothing more than my family to be happy, but is trying to wait for him to get better worth the mental and physical pain you're going through?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.17 22:57 After everything they've been through what matters is their happiness, not my sense of fulfillment. Of course it's worth it.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 00:11 That's not a safe way of thinking. You're killing yourself.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 00:15 They are not going to be happy knowing you are not.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 00:59 Which is why I've done what I can to not let them know when I'm not happy unless I absolutely have to.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 01:04 They've waited and persevered well over thirty years for things to go back to the way they were. I'm not about to let some petty little nonsensical feelings of mine destroy everything. *tears up ever so slightly* I am safe--I've restrained myself before
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 01:04 and I can do it again.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 01:08 Are you aware of the greatest issue regarding Saxon's condition?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 01:12 (Jumping in and out of reception)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 04:57 I understand that his condition poses a great danger to himself and others.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 05:11 I'm used to danger.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 05:20 No the greatest issue is his involuntary feeling of imprisonment by being held back. He wants to be cooperative but there is only so much a natural free spirit can take.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 05:22 He will see his restrictions as a cage he wants to break out of.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 05:43 I haven't been monitoring him nearly as much as
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 05:43 *as before.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 05:45 I could easily quote you and say "perhaps, but it's too late now."
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 05:46 I dont believe it is.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 05:46 Or at least I don't want to.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 05:53 *goes silent for a minute*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 05:53 ...I only meant to protect him...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 06:01 Just as he only means to protect you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 06:15 ...It's not like he can't travel at all...he spends a lot of his time away from home already, and besides, he could go to my universe--Litho wouldn't go after him as much there...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 06:16 You think he wants to leave his home universe?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 06:20 *shakes her head*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 06:45 I know you only mean well, but his recovery process is going to be a painful one. I see that now.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:12 I understand...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 07:21 *scratches his neck. In the meantime he disables the earpieces/mutes the mic* Forgive the change in subject. Do you love Malaucay?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:29 *looks startled**says quickly* What--no!!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:41 *is a lot more tense than before**stares at him, her eyes wide, then looks away*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 07:42 You don't have to lie to me. I'm just curious. It's okay if you do.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:45 No it's not...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:49 *lowers her head slightly, letting her hair obscure her face more*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 07:55 You cannot help that your feelings have changed in the time before you got Saxon back.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 07:57 *wipes her face with her arm and then turns back towards him again* Of course I can help it. They're my feelings. Who I love is my choice.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 07:59 That's your head speaking.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 08:01 By your logic my second husband just couldn't help but cheat on me.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.18 08:07 *starts checking on her earpiece, frowning a bit in confusion*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:10 You do not choose who you fall for. What you do choose is what you do with those feelings. It's not your fault that your husband hadn't the strength to discern what's more important to him. And this is where I have always seen your confliction.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:12 You wish to remain loyal to Saxon, despite your feelings for Malaucay. The effort, while proving to be dangerous for you, is admirable.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 08:35 *turns and stares out at the Rift without really looking at it**distress begins to enter her expression* I don't want to hurt any of them...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:48 Neither of them want to hurt you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 08:51 It's not just Saxon and Malaucay...I don't want to hurt Eira either...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:56 Eira is bound to be hurt, no matter the choice. From what I can tell, there is no winning there. It's almost boiling down to your ultimate decision and your communication regarding the future.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:57 Saxon has known from the first time I really spoke with him that there was a possibility that his own inability to help himself could push you away. He knows the chances of you having feelings for Malaucay.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 08:59 He's not let that get in the way of his progress. He still very much cares about your wellbeing and understands how it could affect you. He does, however, doubt himself now.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:00 *understands how his health could affect you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:16 *as he was speaking she leaned forward and started resting her chin on her hand**she soon wound up covering her mouth with her hand, looking a bit strained as she tried not to cry**started crying at the word "wellbeing"*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:27 I'm sorry...there's just...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:27 Something really wrong with me...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:30 You're trying to make everyone happy. It's a soul-crushing ideology.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:30 They waited over thirty years for me and they love me and yet I keep having these thoughts about Malaucay...and so I tell myself that I feel nothing for him and I'm not allowed to feel anything for him...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:31 Saxon's been unsure if he can actually recover anymore but through his conflictions, one thing remained the same as when I met him. He's happier simply knowing his loved ones are happy. I'm led to believe that whatever you do, he will come to accept if
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:31 it makes you happier.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:33 They're so close to what they've always wanted and needed and then I have these thoughts that are just as bad as trying to run away again...and I hate myself...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:33 *said that before Roffe went on about Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:36 *shakes her head, crying harder* Acceptance isn't happiness! After everything Litho did to him I can't hurt him like this...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:38 I can't run away again...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:39 Eira just wants her family back. I'm not destroying it again.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:42 Family is still family, even if apart.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:44 I want to see Eira grow, but I just can't see it happening when she, too, has to deal with the stress of her parents' problems.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:45 How is the stress she's experiencing now even vaguely comparable to the stress of losing her family again?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:47 The stress now cannot be turned into anything useful. And her family isn't lost. She still has both of you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:50 That isn't what I meant.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:52 She wants us together and happy...that isn't too much for anyone to ask, except I somehow keep managing to wreck everything...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 09:54 We cannot always get what we want. I'm pretty sure that goes to show for any of the universes.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:55 I tell myself that over time I'll get used to it and I'll be happier when Saxon's happier, and I only antagonize him instead...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:55 *said that before Roffe replied*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:56 *finally looks at him, her expression turning extremely bitter* You think?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:56 Throughout all of my lives I've had the things I wanted snatched from me over and over. I just thought the least I could do was give those I care about what they want.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:57 But apparently that's too much as well?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.18 09:57 *looks out at the Rift again**her voice is steadier but the tears are falling faster* If I had been the one to deliver that phone instead of my father things would've been so much better.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 10:03 If you'd gone in Erikas' place, Saxon would have given himself up to release you since you would not have much of a say in his decision. Then things would end up worse. You're still separated forever, only Saxon would likely never be seen again. It'd
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.18 10:04 have been worse than the family splitting apart. THAT is destroying the family.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 01:28 *You'd still end up separatee, only Saxon would likely...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 04:29 "Still?"
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 05:00 I'm being hypothetical.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 05:06 You think you already have decided what's going to happen in our future, don't you?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 05:07 Not decided, just considered the possibilities and the chances of each one.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 05:18 You think my and Saxon's relationship is going to fall apart, don't you?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 05:25 I will not deny the possibility. I consider every option, even the ones I don't particularly like.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 05:43 *stares out at the Rift in despair*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 06:23 I will not tell you what choice to make. That is strictly between you and your husband.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 06:26 I know...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 07:02 ...I don't know how much more I can take...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 07:12 Will you do something about it?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 07:14 I don't know...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.19 08:08 I've already done enough by starting that argument...I don't want to do anything more to hurt them...hurting others has been what I've been best at for well over a decade now...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.19 20:45 You're trying too hard and kicking yourself in the head too much when you mess up.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 04:27 Why shouldn't I? When I mess up people I care about die or get hurt or worse.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 05:52 If you don't believe me, look at Malaucay, Eira, Saxon, Erikas, Lior, Trinh, Chrysantha...I could name so many more if you really wanted to know.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 05:53 I have so much godd*** blood on my hands I sometimes want to chop them off.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 06:10 And prove what point?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 08:24 The point would be that I just don't want to hurt anyone anymore.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 08:52 But apparently it's inevitable at this point that I'll do it again...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 10:16 It is with that mindset.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 10:23 Then what oh so special mindset am I supposed to have? You yourself said that Eira is going to be hurt no matter what I do.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 10:27 Sometimes you just have to make the decision and roll with the punches. She's going to be hurt, so you broaden your perspective. Awful as it may be that he has considered going back to Litho on several occasions, he's done so knowing how many more he can
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 10:28 protect by making the decision.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 10:29 *that Saxon has considered
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 10:37 So I'm supposed to look at things more pragmatically then?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.20 10:39 Not all the time.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.20 11:01 *sighs and looks out at the Rift again*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 06:33 *goes silent, thinking*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 06:48 Thank you for being so open with me. *turns the mic back on* I wish I could tell you what's best, but the decision really is not mine to make. I do think you should take time with Saxon to make such a decison. Think long and hard about it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 06:55 *nods* I will...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 06:55 May I go home?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 07:07 Yes, you may. Do come again sometime. I will listen to whatever you have to say. *opens a portal*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 07:12 Thank you... *goes through the portal*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 07:38 *as soon as she's out of the Rift she heads to Panthea*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.21 07:41 *goes to a rocky cliffside by the sea in Otemjar**it is windy, cloudy, and cold, and the waves are wild**stares out at the ocean, unperturbed by the cold*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 07:41 *looks around for Aedona but can't find her**goes over to Saxon* Have you seen Mom?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.21 07:53 No I haven't. Roffe didn't say anything about where he'd let her go, either.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 07:55 Maybe I should try calling her...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 07:56 Also, the way the earpieces stopped working was weird.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.21 08:06 It was deliberate
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:12 Oh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:14 I didn't know he was going to do that...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:14 I'll um...I'll be right back. *heads to the Rift and looks for Roffe*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 08:18 *has since gone back home*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:26 *knows that Roffe and her mom went to the outer Rift, but she decides to check Roffe's house just to make sure*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:26 *finds him* Er--hi again...I guess I'll be needing the necklace back.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 08:33 Yeah, yeah, here. *puts the necklace down*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:43 Thank you... *takes the necklace, fumbling a little**doesn't look entirely focused*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 08:50 *turns to leave, but hesitates* Roffe?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 08:56 Hm?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 09:00 I can't help but ask...why did you mute our earpieces?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 09:10 I had some questions that were best kept private for now.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 09:14 Alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 09:14 Thanks for your help...
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.21 09:41 Mhmm.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 09:48 *heads back to Urmukka**thinks for a little while before going back to Kira's grave*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 09:53 *has fallen asleep in the flowers. Often twitches and rolls in his sleep*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 09:55 *stares at Siegfried, not sure what to do*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 10:02 *grits his teeth for several moments, then opens his mouth to take quick, pained breaths*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 10:03 Siegfried?...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 10:03 *walks over to him and squats down beside him* Hey...are you--? *slowly and gently puts her hand on his shoulder*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 10:07 *wakes up with a start and a gasp. Looks around quickly before focusing on Eira. Gradually his breathing slows*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 10:09 Are you okay?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 10:10 *has a rather knowing look*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 10:11 Just... Just a dream.. I'm alright.. *sits up and looks at his trembling hands* ...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 19:38 *follows his gaze and looks at his hands as well* I um...I just came to return the necklace...I no longer need it...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 19:54 Alright... How long was I out?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 20:50 I don't know...I just got here.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 20:53 How long were you gone, then?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 20:56 I'm not sure...it couldn't have been more than a few hours, though.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:01 I see... I need to get home, then.. I have something to stop this.. *rests one hand in the palm of the other*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:05 Alright...I'll put the necklace back where it belongs.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:06 *turns towards Kira's grave, but then hesitates* Siegfried?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:08 Yes? *starts pushing himself to his feet*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:11 If you have problems sleeping, my...my mom used to sleep like that a lot.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:12 Then a friend of hers taught her how to lucid dream. If you need help, you can come ask and perhaps she can help you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:12 It's normal for me.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:12 I've dealt with this for years.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:16 You don't have to.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:21 It hasn't worked. It may work at first, but the dreams never remain in my own control.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:23 Oh...I'm sorry...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:24 It's a pain, but I'll live.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:32 Maybe there
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.21 21:32 *there are other ways. My mom once had a dog that stopped nightmares, but that was a long time ago.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.21 21:39 A dog... *takes a deep breath* Dogs.. *shakes his head* They don't necessarily scare me, but.. They make me uncomfortable..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 00:52 Oh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 00:55 *hesitates awkwardly, then looks back down towards the grave* I'll put the necklace back now...please stand back.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 01:14 *stumbles to the bushes and uses them as support*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 03:39 *turns towards him, looking worried* Hey...are you okay? Do you need me to take you somewhere?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 03:54 No, just put the artifact back..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 03:56 Are you sure? You don't look so good...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 04:10 This is normal. I just need to get home.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:14 *walks towards him* I can take you there.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:14 It'd be a shorter trip if I teleported you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 04:40 Put the artifact back. I'm not going to die, it's just a bit of a nerve problem.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:44 Nerve problem?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:49 Uh...alright, I'll get this over with quick... *does what she did before with raising the grave via the use of magic boxes*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 04:50 *holds up his trembling arm* Nerve problem.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 04:50 *said that before she continued*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:53 *is faster than before, but also clumsier than before as she tries to rush things*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:58 *nearly drops the wooden box as she takes it out again**puts the necklace back in it and then sets the box back where it belongs*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 04:59 *shuts the casket and puts it back in the ground*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 05:00 *has closed his eyes, huffing quietly from time to time*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 05:05 *turns back to Siegfried* Let me get you back home.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 05:13 *stares at the grave for several moments* ...Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 05:14 *glances back at the grave* Did I do something wrong?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 05:49 ...N-no.. Let's just go..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 05:50 ...Okay. *puts an arm around him to help steady him*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 05:50 Brace yourself. I doubt you've tessered before.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 06:16 *nods*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 06:19 *closes her eyes and tries to visualize and estimate where they are with respect to Siegfried's house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 06:20 *frowns slightly* I can't quite see where we are with respect to your home...I can approximate it, but I'll put us in the air so that we don't risk landing in the middle of a hill or a tree.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 06:22 Hold on.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 06:30 *puts a second arm around him as she tessers**they appear about 30 feet off the ground not far from the path to his home**summons her wings so that they glide down gently*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 07:17 *lands with him**lets go of him with one arm, leaving her other arm around him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 08:44 ..Thank you. *looks down at the ground for a couple moments*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 08:47 No problem. *hides her wings* Come on. *starts heading towards his home, keeping her arm on him to steady him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 09:10 I hope everything works out for your family. Whatever's going on.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:17 *pauses slightly, but keeps walking*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:17 *says after a minute:* Thank you...I really hope so too...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 09:29 *once they reach the front door he turns to Eira* I can handle myself from here. Think I'll get some more sleep before anything else.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:33 Alright...are you sure you don't need anything else?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 09:36 No. I'll be fine. You should also get some rest.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:38 Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:38 Thank you so much for your help. Goodnight.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 09:39 Goodnight. *goes into the house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.22 09:41 *walks back part of the way to the Surtil house**finds that she is more tired than she expected to be, so she covers most of the rest of the way through tessering*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.22 19:07 *goes right to bed and falls asleep rather quick*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 04:26 *looks around a bit for her mother, but can't find her**goes over to Saxon* Sorry I took so long...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 04:27 Um...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 04:27 Do you want to talk...?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 04:42 Sure.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 04:46 Do you have any questions regarding what we heard?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 04:56 I only wonder what the best decision is..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 05:01 ...Me too...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 05:08 What do you think we should do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 05:09 I know she wants to help me, but it's been so taxing on her..
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 05:09 I don't know what to do.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 05:15 *is about to reply when Aedona comes in*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 05:15 *stares at her, worried* Mom?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 05:29 *walks over and hugs Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 05:30 *her tone is quiet* I'm sorry for how I treated you earlier...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 05:43 I'm... Sorry I've been ignoring you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 05:45 *hugs him tighter*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 06:39 *lets go after a little bit**her eyes are teared up**heads off to bed*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 06:44 *looks down slightly*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 06:47 She...she seems a little better, I guess...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 06:51 Yeah.. *pauses* I'm going to turn in.. Goodnight. *follows Aedona*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.23 07:00 Um...okay, goodnight. *watches him go**doesn't feel tired anymore, so she goes outside and sits out on the back porch of the Surtil house*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 07:01 *hears Saxon coming in and closes her eyes quickly*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 07:12 *takes a few minutes getting ready for bed, then settles in beside Aedona. Doesn't say anything, just gently wraps his arm around her.*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 07:23 *remains still for a few minutes**then opens her eyes a little bit**says very quietly:* Do you want to talk?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 07:28 If that's what you want. Let's talk.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:06 ...I haven't been honest with myself, and it's been hurting me and those around me.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 08:10 It's hard, what you're trying to do...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:18 What you're going through is harder.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 08:20 It doesn't make your struggle any less valid.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:31 Perhaps, but...I've had thoughts that have been very unfair to you...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 08:37 Unfair or not, it doesn't matter to me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:40 I'm just often scared that I might act on those thoughts.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:40 And I have already several times.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 08:42 *doesn't respond*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:49 I don't want to do that again, but I can't achieve that goal alone...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 08:53 Maybe we can work it out together...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 08:57 *nods a little*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 09:09 I love you..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 09:10 I...love you too...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 09:16 Whatever happens, I'll still love you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 09:19 *her eyes begin to tear up again**closes them to hide/stop it*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 09:24 *holds Aedona tighter and closer to him*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 09:46 *tenses up for a few moments, then turns over so that she faces him**her eyes are still closed*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 09:50 *rests his forehead against hers and closes his eyes*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.23 21:13 *just holds still and tries to go to sleep*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.23 22:25 *in a quiet whisper* No matter what you choose...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 04:51 *trembles a little for just a moment and sniffles a few seconds later*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 07:12 ~FIVE DAYS LATER...~
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.24 08:02 *hasn't gone out anywhere and has mostly been trying to communicate better with Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 08:02 *Jane's birthday is coming up, so she heads to the plaza to get some things in preparation for this*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 08:04 *over the last five days she has tried to spend more time with Saxon and communicate better with him and
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 08:04 *and Eira as well*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 08:32 *is browsing the various shops set up in the plaza*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 08:47 *goes into one of the buildings to the dessert shop*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 08:53 *buys a snack at one shop and takes it to a tree at the plaza center, where he sits to rest*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:04 *comes out with a package in her hands**goes to one of the stalls at the center**due to the tree Mayhem is sitting by, she doesn't notice him*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:20 *gets a toy**another toy stand catches her eye and she starts walking towards it*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:21 *passes near the tree and jumps/jerks slightly when she realizes Mayhem is there*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:25 *tries not to look at him as she walks on but does anyway**while taking a quick look back at him she trips on the border between the grass and the concrete and falls down, dropping her package and toy*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:27 *swears under her breath*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 09:28 *manages to catch the view of Aedona tripping and can't suppress a snort of amusement. Nevertheless he gets up to go help her*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:36 *reaches to pick up the toy, but completely freezes when she realizes Mayhem has come over*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 09:41 Are you alright? *picks up the toy and holds out a hand to Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 09:46 *stays frozen for a few moments, then forces herself to look at him**her cheeks are a bit red and her eyes are wide**only manages to look at his face for a second**looks down at the ground and nods, getting up without taking his hand*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 09:50 *sighs and instead picks up the package as well and holds them out to her*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 19:04 *her face turns slightly redder; she had forgotten about the package**takes the toy and package from him* Thank you...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 19:59 No problem.. It's Jane's birthday, isn't it? I'd gotten carried away with work I practically forgot..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 20:44 Close...her birthday's two days from now. I'm making preparations for it a bit early.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 21:06 I see.. Well at least I didn't miss it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 22:39 I think it'd be impossible to miss it. Just earlier today she wouldn't stop talking about when you, Cadmael, and Karma will come to the party.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 22:40 She even asked what your, Cadmael's, and Karma's birthdays are.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 22:45 Cadmael might not be able to come if it's here in the valley. Can't see why Karma couldn't, though. As for our birthdays, I only know my own in terms of an Earth date.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 22:48 I told her that Pierce might know your and Cadmael's birthdays. Maybe she'll learn what your birthdays are in Exocoelian time.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 22:56 I like my birth date in accordance to Earth, though. I get the holiday that is basically a worldwide masquerade. Honestly Halloween is such a fun concept. A bunch of humans pretending to be various monsters. I find it rather amusing.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 23:08 *has been avoiding eye contact and has forced her tone to remain so calm that it sounds a bit robotic*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 23:10 *finally chuckles a little, her expression lightening* Oh, THAT'S your birthday? I remember back when Aidan was a kid, Eira liked to dress up with Aidan... *trails off, her eyes becoming rather dull*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 23:13 Earth still proves to be one of the most interesting places... *chuckles a bit awkwardly* ..I should probably get back to my search...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 23:16 Your "search?"
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.24 23:39 I'm looking for a spool of thread made only by the locals here. That and I would love to have some rugs from this place.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.24 23:41 I don't know about the thread, but... *describes where a shop with some really nice rugs is*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.25 00:50 Thank you. I'll check the place out once I find the thread I'm looking for. Nice seeing you again. *starts walking away*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 03:56 I--I wouldn't mind-- *cuts herself off*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 03:56 Nevermind. See you.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.25 04:03 *stops. Doesn't say anything for several moments, then continues walking away*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 04:05 *has turned and started quickly walking home, forgetting about the second toy stand she was going to browse*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.25 04:13 *stops by several more shops, including the shop Aedona recommended. Finds the thread he was looking for and buys a pretty-looking rug*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 04:21 *first goes into the Surtil house and squirrels away the dessert and toy**then heads back to the treehouse*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 04:40 *sits down, her posture slumped*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 04:41 *on this particular day he's been walking around the main parts of town, just trying to enjoy his surroundings*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,May.25 04:42 *has gone off with Pierce to learn what Mayhem's and Cadmael's birthdays are*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.25 04:43 *comes into the room to greet Aedona. Pauses* Everything alright? What's wrong?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 04:49 *glances at him, but can't bring herself to look at his face, so she looks down at her hands as she fidgets* Everything's fine...I've just been thinking...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.25 04:58 Hm?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,May.25 05:00 Bad thoughts...I'll get over them...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,May.25 05:05 Okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:00 *is off shopping to help gather supplies for the party*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:04 *starts walking home with bags slung over her shoulders and arms full of supplies*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:21 *passes by Siegfried and nods at him in greeting*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 06:23 Do you need help with those?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:25 No, I'm fine, thank you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 06:28 You sure?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:37 Yeah.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:38 The only thing I can think of needing help with is opening doors, but the house is still a ways away. I can handle it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 06:42 I have nothing better to do since Pierce is busy.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:45 Oh...well that's Jane's fault... *chuckles*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 06:47 So I hear.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:49 She's a little obsessed with birthdays right no.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 06:49 *now.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 06:54 Birthdays are fun. I haven't celebrated my birthday since I can't remember when. My parents were adamant about making sure the celebrations were something special.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:01 Yeah. They're great if you have the right people or family involved.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:02 I agree.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:07 *has started walking home as she talks**adjusts the stuff she's carrying so that it's easier to handle*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:11 *walks beside her* So is all of this for Jane?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:18 Some of it is. We're going to hold the party on my mom's home planet so that everyone can come. Some of these supplies are just for setting things up there, and some of them are for everyone attending to share.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:24 Ah. Well that sounds like a lot of fun.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:25 I hope it'll be. This is the first birthday party of hers that I'll attend in person.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:33 Hmm.. Anything I can do to help out?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:34 More or less I have nothing better to do overall until I head out of the valley again.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:37 I can't really think of anything.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:38 Though...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:38 Would you be familiar with the life cycle of Naedyrms?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:40 I am quite familiar. What do you need to know?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:46 Is there a way to hatch an egg besides waiting thousands of years for the perfect storm?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:48 You see...a Naedyrm showed Jane where an egg was--it was stuck under some thorn bushes--and let her keep it.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 07:54 It takes a tremendous amount of power to hatch a Naedyrm egg. Either a considerably powerful lightning spell or a well-timed lightning strike, usually supercharged by another Naedyrm.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:56 Huh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 07:57 It has been stormy here since she got the egg...what dictates whether a Naedyrm will decide to supercharge a lightning bolt?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:02 Typically when another Naedyrm is nearing its death, the others will make it a priority to find and hatch another as soon as possible.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:07 So they have a population cap?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:09 No. The more young Naedyrm there are, the more poachers there are. So they only raise a few at a time in order to better protect them so their species doesn't go extinct. Back in the early days they would completely abandon their young, but now they will
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:10 protect the young that do hatch.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:10 Unless said hatchling is born under the care of a human
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:18 Oh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:19 It would be great if Jane's egg was hatched for her birthday, but if it's too complicated it's fine if it doesn't...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:24 Maybe I'll ask Pierce if his Naedyrm friend could help out.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:36 *shakes his head* Really that Naedyrm isn't the most social. There are others who would potentially work better.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:38 Would they really do something like this for a little girl's birthday party??
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:38 All of them don't seem that social to me...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:42 While none are particularly social with people, some will still be gentle with people while others are more aggressive.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:45 Alright...do you know which ones would be willing to hatch the egg?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:49 We could go talk to them.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:56 *raises her eyebrows* We could?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:57 Um--alright...the sooner the better, I guess...just let me drop off all this stuff. *they get to the Surtil house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 08:57 *waits for him to open the door*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 08:59 *opens the door for her and waits out front*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 09:06 *puts the stuff she got away and then comes back out*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 09:18 *starts walking with him**hesitates, then says:* First the necklace and now the Naedyrm...you really seem to help me a lot.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 09:39 Your records may not show it, but I have served the Surtil family for a long time. Since I was old enough to actually be of help, actually.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 09:41 Huh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 09:42 How come?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 09:49 It was a personal choice. The Surtils tend to have a lot of work on their hands and ever since I was a kid I've wanted to play a part in keeping this place alive. Exocoel as a whole, not just the valley.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 09:50 What do you do outside of the valley?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 09:53 I travel around. Gather intel on potentially dangerous groups and find ways to put a stop to their plans. Things typically along those lines. It may not look like it, but this planet has quite a number of dangerous factions.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 10:04 Really? Sounds like a really interesting job.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 10:06 It's got its pros and cons.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 10:12 So are you like a secret agent for the Surtil family?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 10:18 I guess you could say that. I try to keep a low profile, though I do have a sort of notoriety here in Urmukka.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 19:58 "Sort of?" Every time I hear someone else talk about you it seems like they think you're the coolest thing to ever come from here.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 20:07 Well not many get to do what I do.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:22 If you don't mind me asking, what is it like?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 20:29 A roller coaster. That's what it's like.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:31 Well then I guess the main question here is do you like rollercoasters?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 20:34 Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. There are days when I feel invincible and others when I just want to quit.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:36 Alright, interesting... *looks down at what's in front of her feet, but it's unclear if she's actually paying attention or if her mind is elsewhere*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:40 *paying attention to where she's going
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 20:43 Overall the work is well worth it. Though I guess you have to experience it to know if it's actually worth anything.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:48 Yeah...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 20:49 Sorry if I'm being nosy--I know your kind of job deals with sensitive matters. I know someone else who won't tell me almost anything about their experiences with a kind of similar job.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 20:59 No you're alright. I believe I can trust you.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 21:05 *glances at him and nods a little*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 21:20 You know, if you really want to see what my work is like, I wouldn't mind bringing you along. Just don't tell Pierce.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 21:24 ...I don't know...I've been busy lately...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 21:26 I'm not going anywhere for at least a couple of weeks.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 21:31 I'll think about it...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.25 21:32 Right now I need to prioritize my family.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.25 22:21 I get that.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 01:59 *deep into the woods on the opposite side of the river stands a tree with a hollow formed in the branches. Clears his throat and whistles/mimics the call of a falcon*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:12 *looks around, waiting for something or someone to appear*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:16 *the branches of the tree tremble as a massive orange Naedyrm appears and slowly crawls out of the hollow. It emits a low growl, but cuts itself off and leaps straight for Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:17 *tries to dodge, but fails. Ends up being smacked to the ground. Rolls away from the beast and dodges more of its swipes until it strikes him again, knocking him to the ground. The beast roars in triumph and steps on his back*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:19 AH- OFF! OFF! *The Naedyrm backs up quickly, allowing him to sit up* You know better, Hayden.... *groans* That's gonna hurt for a good week...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:19 *had yelled Siegfried's name and started forward to help, but then froze, not sure what to do*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:23 Eira. This is Hayden. He's among the oldest Naedyrm here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:23 Are you okay?!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:23 *Hayden wags his tail excitedly*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:25 Yeah... He just stepped on me wrong. AGAIN! I swear he does it on purpose.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:26 *glances at Hayden* I...I don't mean to offend, but...are you sure he could handle a little girl's birthday party?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:37 He's the most docile of any Naedyrm I've met. Just really playful around people he knows.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:42 Oh...alright...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 04:44 *turns to Hayden* Er--hi.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:49 Besides, I don't think he'd be there for the whole party. Just to help hatch the egg. Speaking of which, is there a possibility of a storm being brewed? The most effective way to hatch it is to supercharge a lightning strike.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 04:50 *Hayden crouches low, huffing and growling, wagging his tail*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 05:14 I don't know...my mom might know where to locate a storm on that planet. I'd have to ask her about it.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 05:25 *@ Hayden* I'm Eira...my younger sister Jane has a Naedyrm egg and her birthday is coming up in two days.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 05:25 Do you think you could help out and hatch it on her birthday?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 05:39 *Hayden looks at Siegfried, confused, but turns his attention back to Eira when Siegfried just motions for an answer*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 05:40 * Hayden opens his mouth and sighs, then nods*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 05:44 Thank you! Is there anything I could do for you in return?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 06:01 *Hayden shrugs, turning back to Siegfried*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 06:01 I'll bring you something good to eat.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 06:11 Oh...thank you both.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 06:58 It's really no trouble. Now we do have to talk how Hayden gets there and how quickly he can get back here.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:02 I can get him there through tessering.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:02 And I can get him back the same way.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:03 He doesn't even necessarily have to go where the party will be set up. Maybe we'll just go wherever there's a storm.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 07:24 Perhaps. He will need to use the storm's energy.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:27 Could I come back here tomorrow? I need to talk about this with my mom.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 07:28 Of course.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:31 Okay. Hayden can usually be found around here, right?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 07:42 He lives up in that tree.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 07:51 Oh, okay.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 08:16 *turns to Hayden* I'm really grateful and humbled to have been allowed to talk to a Naedyrm. Thank you both again.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 08:21 I need to get going. *starts heading home*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,May.26 19:40 Goodbye.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.26 19:41 *on another trip for supplies he decides to stop and find Vitar*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,May.26 20:28 *Vitar is in Char's building, quietly talking with Char*
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.26 20:31 *had finally left Urmukka maybe about a week ago**is in Char's building with Rivkah sitting beside him*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.26 22:53 *takes a seat and waits for an opportunity to approach Vitar and Char. Doesn't feel like interrupting them. Now and then he finds himself people-watching, being particularly interested in Amadeus and Rivkah*
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.27 02:09 *looks happy and is rather talkative**his posture is odd--he is on a plushy chair with his side against the back of it, and occasionally he winces and adjusts himself*
19>Rivkah (Human), 17yo.2020,May.27 02:11 *is a lot quieter than Amadeus**she smiles, nods, and/or laughs at a lot of what he has to say, but when he isn't looking she checks her phone and her expression becomes one of discomfort*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 02:18 Vitar: *knows Mayhem is there**speaks with Char for a few more minutes, his brows furrowed**at the end of the conversation, Char smiles at him gently and pats him on the back, then turns and walks away*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 02:20 Vitar: *hesitates**has a look of indigestion**shakes his head a little, his expression becoming neutral, and then walks over to Mayhem*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 02:36 *taps the table repetetively. Now and then he opens his mouth a bit and clicks the masks teeth together*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 04:16 Thought you were busy. What is it?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 04:16 *Vitar said that*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 04:18 I am very busy, yes. However I do not like being in debt to anyone so I have been thinking about ways of paying back the courtesy shown in letting me stay here.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 04:42 Well...after what you've done for me regarding Avis, I wouldn't think that you're in my debt.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 04:47 Well maybe I'm not in your debt, but I am in his. *nods toward where Char walked off to*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 04:56 Maybe. I'm the one who talked him into letting you stay here, though, so if anything I owe him.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 05:09 Theres not exactly much money or estate that I can offer, nor am I particularly interested in whatever he does for a living, but the best thing I figure I can do is offer a partner from my domain, the Midden.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 05:11 There's one in particular that would be of good use. It's one of the few well-behaved beings that Cadmael worked alongside.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 05:13 *pulls a piece of paper with a detailed sketch of the avian from his pocket and places it on the table* It's a loyal bird, capable of quite a number of tasks.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:17 *looks at the sketch for a few moments, thinking hard**then looks at Mayhem* Mind if I leave for a moment to go get Char?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 05:21 Go ahead.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:29 *heads off to Char's dressing room, knocking twice before coming in* Char, I--
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:30 *a woman shrieks and jumps out of Char's arms* What the--
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:31 Char: *chuckles and leans back in his chair, putting his feet up on the counter* Mmmhmm?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:33 *sighs* Well now I see why your haircuts take an hour.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:33 Come on, Malaucay has an important proposition.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:34 Char: Oh? *jumps to his feet* Vitar: He's supposedly grateful for your hospitality and he wishes to give you a Midden bird to serve you.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:36 Char: And who else will the bird serve? *goes out the door and into the hallway* Vitar: As much as I've grown to trust him, I wouldn't be surprised if the bird reported back to him.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 05:44 Char: Hmm...we'll see if the bird's worth the risk then. Is he still where he was when I left? Vitar: Yes. *they walk back to Mayhem*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 05:55 *has been lightly scratching the top of his mask the whole time they were gone* So. Decisions to be made.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:08 Char: Indeed. *sits down across from Mayhem and crosses his legs* Vitar has informed me you are offering to put a Midden bird in my service. Please elaborate on its abilities.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:15 Compared to other Midden creatures, this one is a lot more intelligent. It cannot communicate like we can, but it does understand everything we say. It's meant to be used as for fieldwork but I haven't done anything of the sort in countless years. Cadmael
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:25 was the one who recommended I offer the bird, since it's practically suffocating where it is now, with nothing to do. Back to what it can do. Just like any Midden creature, it does have a supply of dark magic, though admittedly I had never tested the full
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:25 capabilities of its magic, just its ability to follow orders and carry out complex tasks.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:30 Char: What have you confirmed so far in terms of its magical capabilities?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:35 It's able to hide in someones shadow and enforce its talons with dark magic for fighting purposes.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:39 Dark magic has been known to be fairly malleable, though. Just depends on how it's used.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:42 Char: When it hides in someone's shadow can it stay there for long periods of time completely undetected?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:44 It can and has, from my experience.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:45 It may not be able to speak, but there are still ways of teaching it to communicate. Cadmael had taught it to write, though I do know there are forms of tech that can give it a voice.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:47 Char: *thinks for a minute**then says:* It sounds like it'd be of great help to us. How about I take it for a test drive for a week and then let you know whether I'd like to keep it?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 06:50 Sounds good to me.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:57 Char: Then it's a deal.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:57 Char: Amadeus!
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.27 06:57 Hm?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:59 Char: See what you can do about getting one of those devices that lets creatures talk.
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.27 06:59 Alright, but...they come in so many different types...
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 06:59 Char: Then stop messing around with your girlfriend and come over here.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:00 Char: *turns back towards Mayhem* Could it be brought to us now?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:02 *looks at the ground around him* If you're alright with the portal being opened up on your floor*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:02 *-*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:10 Char: So long as it doesn't leave any scratches it should be fine.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:12 Okay. *opens a small portal in the ground and the bird flies out and lands on Mayhem's shoulder. Closes the portal*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:18 Char: So...what's its name?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:20 I don't call it anything, or at least not anymore. It will respond to the name given to it, though.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:30 Char:
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:34 *Char: What's his species? Does he have typical vocal chords for that species?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:37 It's one of a kind and really Midden creatures don't have species names if therel are no more than one. It's vocal chords are still similar to a bird.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:41 Char: Amadeus, take note and see if you can find something that allows it to speak.
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.27 07:42 *nods* Will do. *starts walking off **notices Rivkah looking at him nervously and goes over to her, taking her hand* I'll take you home. I have work to do.
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.27 07:43 *Rivkah nods and he tessers away with her*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:43 *has narrowed his eyes ever so slightly while looking at the bird*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:44 You're going to work for Char, alright? *scratches the neck of the bird*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.27 07:44 *snaps at Mayhem's finger*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:50 Char: For written communication, will a simple pencil and paper do?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 07:51 It should. I don't think it enjoys writing, but it can.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 07:57 Char: Alright...what pronoun does it prefer to go by?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 08:03 I do think it's a boy?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 08:08 Char: Got it. Anything else I need to know?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 08:15 Uh, yeah. As a creature that isn't alive the same way we are, it does have to recharge every so often in the Midden. It will let you know when it is out of energy to keep it going.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 08:16 I will be sure to have Cadmael craft something to let you open a small portal for it.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 08:16 It should be just fine for the week
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 08:18 Char: Alright. How often does this happen on average?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 08:19 That it must return?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 08:20 Char: Mm hmm.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 14:31 Two weeks is the longest I've gone before risking its health.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 19:56 Char: I see...that should be plenty of time for some projects.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 20:04 *opens his mouth for a couple moments, then just shuts it, making a loud click*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.27 20:10 *focuses on preening his feathers*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 20:28 Char: I hope you don't mind if I go off-topic, but I have to ask--why do you wear that mask?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 20:37 If you must know, a deity will wear it to conceal their shame for disgracing themselves. One tends to feel less comfortable being seen by those who know who or what they are.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.27 20:46 Char: *confusion flashes in his eyes for a split second, but he nods anyway* I see...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.27 22:48 It's mainly a matter of pride.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.28 04:56 Char: Alright. Well...are we about ready for me to start working with the bird, or is there more yet that I need to know?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.28 06:01 Not really. It's already trained, so it shouldn't be too much trouble.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.28 11:31 Char: Got it.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.28 11:38 Char: Well, thank you for your contribution!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.28 17:58 Yeah... Alright.. *tells the bird to get off his shoulder and stands up* I still am busy, so forgive me for leaving so soon.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 03:56 Char: Oh, there's no problem. We're all busy.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.29 04:12 I'll bring you something to help it get bsck to the Midden when your trial is up and you determine if it's worth keeping.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 04:15 Char: Got it.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.29 04:42 Thank you for hearing me out and accepting the gesture.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 04:49 Char: And thank you for your help.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.29 04:56 I'll be back eventually. Until then. *nods and turns to walk away*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:01 Char: Until then. *salutes to him and then stands up, stretching*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:05 Char: *looks around* Huh...would've thought Amadeus would be back by now...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,May.29 05:06 *goes back to the worksite to work on his house*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 05:07 *looks at Char, then ruffles his feathers, staring quietly*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:09 Give the kid a break. He still has trouble walking.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:09 *crosses his arms* Yes yes, and whose fault is that?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:10 *doesn't say anything*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:17 *sighs* Nevermind, shouldn't have said that. I know you're sensitive about that and I apologize.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:18 *turns to Roffe* Now...you can respond with nodding and shaking your head, can't you?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 05:28 *nods*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 05:42 Good. Do you have a preferred name?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 06:40 *nods once more*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:31 Vitar, get a pencil and paper.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:31 What-
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:32 You do realize I understand the languages of all living things, right?
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:32 All PANTHEAN living things.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:34 It's not like I can't try to understand him.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:35 *shakes his head a bit, covering his beak with his wing*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:37 He's a Midden creature. You think something THAT unique would be understandable?
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:39 If his language is similar enough to certain bird groups that we are familiar with, then yes.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:39 *starts looking around the room*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:40 Suit yourself. I'll get what we know actually works. *walks off*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:43 *sits down* You can try to speak to me if you want to.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:43 I might be able to understand you or I might not. There's only one way to find out.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:45 *goes and gets a pencil and a small pad of paper*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:45 *looks back at Vitar* "You can try, I guess." *his call sounds like a weird mix between reptillian and avian*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:46 *as he's walking back he hunches over and starts dragging his feet with a pencil in one hand and the paper in the other*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:46 uuuUUUGGggGGhhhHHH
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:47 *frowns, looking taken aback**barely notices Char's groan* Huh...that's interesting...
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:47 Oh dear GAWDSSSSS
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:48 *trudges into the room* ThIs PeNcIl AnD pApEr ArE tOo HeAvY fOr My RoYaLlY sTuCk Up [BLEEP]
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:49 *collapses over the back of one of the chairs, "just barely managing" to put the pencil and paper on the small table*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:49 *sort of mimics Char's posture and caws quietly as if mimicking what he said*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:49 *rolls his eyes and smirks slightly* Sounds about right.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:51 *frowns again at Roffe, thinking*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:52 *Vitar did that, not Char*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:52 *his mouth is smushed against the seat of the chair* MMMHPPHHM
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:53 It's really interesting. He sounds like he's speaking two languages at once--one's a bird language, but the other I can't quite pinpoint...something reptilian or aquatic or both? I'm really not sure.
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:53 Either way, it's muddled together so much that I can't make out what he's saying.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:53 *caws, but ends the caw by blowing raspberries*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:54 MMMHPPHHPHH
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:54 Good talk. Very nice input from both of you.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:56 *yanks his legs over the back and side of the chair and points at Roffe* I like you!
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:56 *taps his fingers by the paper* What's your name?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 09:56 *sits up and grabs the paper and pencil so he can start writing*
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:59 *rises again* It's about time I go. You two have a nice chat. *while Roffe is looking down at the paper, he and Char exchange a look*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 09:59 Alrighty. Have a wonderful day.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 10:00 *writes as neatly as he can* "My name is Ethelram."
1>Vitar (Panthean God of Life), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 10:00 *leaves Char's building, passing Amadeus along the way* About time. You got what Char needs? Amadeus: I think so! Vitar: Good. Be careful what you say around the bird, alright? Amadeus: Alright.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 10:02 Well I am honored to meet you, Ethelram.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 10:03 "Likewise."
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.29 10:03 *arrives with several devices, limping slightly* I think one of these should work!
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 10:04 Let's see about that.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 10:07 *puts one of the devices--which amounts to a small collar--on him snugly*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 10:08 *speaks, but the translator doesn't appear to do much*
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.29 10:09 *sits down* That one's for reptiles in general and these other two are for birds or bird-like things.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.29 10:10 *he had tried one of the ones designed for bird-like things**removes it* Hmm...let's try this one instead. *puts the one designed for reptiles on him*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.29 10:13 *speaks a bit, slowly. At first it doesn't do much, but soon his voice sounds clearer* -so I said to the beast- Oh! Well looky here. Guess this works, eh?
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.30 04:18 It's working!
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 04:19 Indeed. I do apologize, but the translator didn't kick in right away. We only understood the last ten or so words you spoke.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 04:30 It was just some rambling. So this is what it's like to speak. Cadmael is the only humanoid who can understand me normally.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 04:48 I see.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 04:54 So...tell me about yourself. I've heard enough from Malaucay. Now I'd like to learn about you in your own words.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 05:01 What would you like to know?
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 05:09 What do you like to eat? What are your favorite hobbies? What sounds do you like and not like? Things like that. Just tell me about yourself.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 05:28 There's not much to eat in the Midden... Cadmael brought Caulis and I some sweet bread once. That was good. Oh! I like music! But what bird doesn't like music?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 05:29 Most of what I know comes from Cadmael. He's kind to all of us and brings us all sorts of fun things.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 05:42 Sweet bread, you say?
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 05:44 Hm...if you do an extra good job with some tasks I have for you, perhaps I can roll some sweet bread into our deal here.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 05:44 Anywho, back to you. Do you have preferences about your living space?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 05:47 I suppose just about anything is better than the hollow I lived in. Some kind of perch I guess.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 05:53 Amadeus, prepare a room for him to stay in. Make sure it has a perch and maybe include some...natural accents.
12>Amadeus (Panthean God), YAyo.2020,May.30 05:54 Will do. *seems a bit disappointed, as he was clearly curious about Roffe, but leaves anyway*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 05:57 It is exciting, the idea of working again.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 06:04 Indeed...but there are some very real dangers in this line of work.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 06:04 I would like to know if you're absolutely sure that you are up for this.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 06:10 Of course I'm up for it. The Midden itself is a dangerous realm. Everything there is conditioned to be deadly if need be.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 06:45 Good.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 06:51 Let's start with a simple task. *glances at a clock* I have a meeting in thirty minutes.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 06:57 It's a conference with other people who work here. There's one employee who I have suspected of foul play for a while now, but he has been smarter than the ones I've caught in the past.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:02 I think he works for someone else in secret. I can show you what he looks like. I assure you he will be at the meeting today. If you could monitor him for a while and find proof and details for what he's been up to, that would be extremely helpful.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 07:04 I'll get right on it.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:11 Come along.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:19 *gets up and starts walking out of the room*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 07:19 *hops/walks with him*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:28 My building has a vast number of rooms with different uses. Some rooms require certain things to access them. Naturally I have access to every room.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:36 *takes him to the elevator**they go to a lower floor and into a room with computers*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:42 *goes to a computer, signs in, and brings up a profile of an employee**he is a humanoid, though clearly not human*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:42 This is the employee in question.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 07:49 *steps back* You may read this if you think it'll be of assistance to you.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 07:57 Why, thank you. *starts reading*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 08:08 *stands around for about 30 seconds, then goes to another computer and starts playing games on it*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 08:46 *is playing a digital version of a board game and beating the computer rather handily*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 09:05 *takes whatever information he thinks could be important and steps away from the computer*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:17 *holds up one finger and then wraps up the game he's playing*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:17 Ah, that was fun...it's too bad better software doesn't exist for that game... *gets up*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 09:24 So you would like me to tail this person. Doesn't seem too difficult.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:29 Probably not. I doubt they know of beings who can literally hide in the shadows.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:29 But you've been in the Midden for such a long time. It can't hurt to get a bit of a warm-up.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:29 Oh, and try to complete this task in less than three days, will you?
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 09:30 I will do my best.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.30 09:41 Good to hear.
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.30 16:10 I will join you at this meeting. *slips into shadow* Don't mind me at all while I use your shadow to kick this off.
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,May.31 07:42 Alrighty. *heads to the room the meeting is in*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,May.31 19:34 *takes his place and hides*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 05:27 *soon the meeting begins and he and his employees talk about implementing plans for providing services for another company*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 05:28 *the employee Char suspects of being a mole is there too*
20>Roffe (Demon God), ?yo.2020,Jun.1 06:07 *listens to the meeting for several minutes before he makes his way to the target's shadow*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 07:41 *during the meeting they mostly discuss how to go about handling the needs of a company who has turned to them to help them with finding the cheapest and most efficient way of getting a material that is ordinarily very difficult to get*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 07:46 *various employees present their research**the most efficient way often involves buying up land and ousting locals*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 07:47 *the suspicious employee presents research that is about on par with everyone else/not out of the ordinary*
3>Char (Panthean God of Heat), Imrtlyo.2020,Jun.1 09:32 ~TWO DAYS LATER...~
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.1 09:35 *everything has been set up on Panthea**Eira has discussed how they'll go about hatching the egg with both Aedona and the Naedyrm*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.1 20:15 *waits with Hayden to meet with Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.2 04:52 *on Aedona's orders, she has informed Cadmael and Mayhem of where the hatching will take place**heads back into the woods to meet up with Hayden and take him to where the hatching will occur*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.2 04:58 *has rounded up Saxon, Jane, and the egg*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.2 04:59 *is ready to head to Azahar with them*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.2 05:22 *has made sure Jane has something to cover her face with since it'll be very sandy during the storm*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.2 05:42 *has been in a pretty good mood, considering it's Jane's birthday and they're all about to witness a Naedyrm egg hatching*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.2 05:43 *arrives at where Hayden lives* Hi again. *looks at Siegfried* Didn't expect you to be here.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.2 05:51 Well Hayden is my friend and it was my idea for him to go.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.2 05:57 *turns to Saxon and Jane* You ready? Jane: YEAH!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.2 05:58 Well...I'm about ready to go, so...do you feel it would be best for you to come along?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.2 08:12 I wouldn't mind either way. It's your sister's birthday.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.2 09:01 *shrugs her shoulders* I don't see why you shouldn't come and make sure everything goes the way it should.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.2 09:04 I guess.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.2 09:05 *climbs onto Hayden's back*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.2 20:26 I am a stranger to everyone there, though.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 06:34 You're not a stranger to Jane. Besides, I told my mom I had help with locating the Naedyrm. She'll understand.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 06:57 Alright then.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 06:58 *walks up to them* You both ready to go?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:04 * nods*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:04 *tessers the three of them to the coordinates Aedona gave her**spots Aedona, Saxon, and Jane waiting nearby*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:09 *they are on the edges of a desert town**it is windy and bright despite being overcast above**takes some sunglasses out of her pocket and puts them on to help shield her eyes from the sand and light*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:10 *jumps off Hayden and waits beside him*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:12 *waves and walks over to her family*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 07:13 *is staring at Siegfried, though her expression is unreadable* Who is that?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:13 He's the guy who's been helping with the Naedyrm. I just figured it'd be safer to bring him along to make sure everything goes alright.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:16 *vaguely recognizes Siegfried from town. Simply nods a greeting to him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:17 *nods back, then turns to Hayden*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:18 Whoa!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:19 Is that another Naedyrm?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:19 Yeah! His name is Hayden.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:20 *runs up to Hayden and Siegfried* Hi!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:20 *looks up at Hayden* Can I pet you?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:23 Hayden: *lays down*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:25 *pets Hayden's nose* You're really cool!!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:30 Hayden: *snorts*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:34 *pets Hayden's side, not really saying much*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:36 *watches Siegfried for awhile, then goes to Eira* I've known so many people from the valley and never once before seen this guy until recently. Just who exactly is he?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:36 Hayden's going to do something great for you. Come on.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 07:37 *Aedona said that, not Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:44 *says quietly as she starts walking with the family:* He's some kind of adventurer--at least that's what the kids think. Pierce and Wren trust him and he's apparently like a dad to them, so I think he's trustworthy.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 07:44 *runs after Aedona and co. as they start moving* What's he gonna do?!!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 07:45 You'll see soon.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:48 You'd think we'd know a little more about him, though, right?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 07:48 *waits to give Hayden the order to take to the sky*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 07:50 I don't know...I guess...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.3 08:01 I've talked with him a whole bunch, though. He's alright.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.3 08:09 Hm.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 08:24 *they walk out of town towards what appears to be a giant mountain**brownish storm clouds swirl around it*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 08:36 *sends Hayden up into the sky, telling him to wait until everyone is ready, then follows the group*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 08:44 Whoa!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 08:44 The clouds are all circular-ish!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 08:45 Yes. They're pretty much always circling around that volcano.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 08:45 Legend has it that this place is cursed and that's why the weather is always turbulent.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.3 08:50 *watches Hayden climb higher into the sky*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 08:51 *Hayden roars, sounding just like thunder*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 09:07 *has been carrying the egg for Jane**sets it down* Alright, let's get back.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 09:08 Pretty far back, I'd say.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 09:08 And I'd cover your ears.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 09:23 *keeps her tone entirely calm and formal* I should probably make some sort of barrier under our feet as well to prevent a shock from coming up through the ground and hitting us, correct?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 09:27 It's unlikely, as the egg will absorb the electricity.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 09:35 But could it happen?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 09:41 You do whatever you want.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 09:45 *nods slightly and gets back with the family*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.3 09:48 *shows up with Cadmael*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.3 09:49 *glances at them, but mostly pays them no mind*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.3 10:13 *holds Jane close and prepares to create magic under their feet to minimize the risk of electrocution**goes out of her way to not look at Mayhem, though she smiles briefly at Cadmael*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 10:14 *wriggles slightly, but not enough for Aedona to let go*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.3 10:15 Cadmael: *smiles back, then looks at Mayhem to see his reaction, or more accurately a lack thereof*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.3 16:37 *was staring up at Hayden**when Mayhem's and Cadmael's presence finally registers in her mind, she wriggles harder and gets out of Aedona's grip**races over to them* Malaucay!! Cadmael!! *tries to hug them both*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.3 20:32 *lets Cadmael hug Jane first*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 04:29 *hugs Cadmael tightly and then lets go of him with one arm and tries to pull Mayhem into the hug*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.4 04:34 *points up at the sky* Why don't you focus on what's about to happen?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 04:37 Oh yeah! *turns and looks up, still holding onto Cadmael*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 04:49 *lightning begins to ripple through the clouds, frequently illuminating the silhouette of Hayden up in the sky*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:01 *her eyes widen**points up at where she last saw Hayden's silhouette* He's way up there!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 05:10 *focuses on the sky*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 05:11 *glances at her mother, Saxon, Mayhem, and then Siegfried before looking up at the sky as well*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:13 *soon Hayden drops through the cloud layer, static rippling off him. He hovers and breathes in deep, sparks of lightning spewing from the sides of his mouth. Suddenly a lightning bolt strikes him and as soon as he's finished recoiling he spits a
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:15 massive bolt of lightning directly onto the egg, shaking the ground around it, but little explosion occurs. The dust takes some time to clear, but when it does it reveals a small crater in the ground with the egg lying at the center*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:16 *Hayden immediately drops to the ground, slowing its fall towards the end and just lies down*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:16 *lies down once it lands
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:18 *grabbed onto Cadmael tighter when the lightning hit the egg*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 05:19 *coughs a little bit from the dust, squinting to try to see the egg better through the sandy wind*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:20 *lets go of Cadmael and walks forward about a meter, staring towards the egg*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 05:21 *looks at Hayden, a bit concerned*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:22 *glances back at Mayhem and Cadmael**then takes off running towards the egg*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 05:22 Jane!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:23 *runs after Jane* Don't touch it, it's hot!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.4 05:24 *had started chasing Jane, but stopped when he realized that Siegfried was quicker to act*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:29 *stops* When is it gonna hatch?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 05:30 *had started forward but hesitated for the same reason that Mayhem stopped*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:37 Give it a bit. *gets close to the egg and gestures for Jane to approach it*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:46 *walks over**instinctively reaches out for it, but stops*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 05:50 *watches intently as the egg begins to rock a bit, then it cracks*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 05:57 *gasps, staring at the egg*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 06:01 *walks over to get a better look at what's happening**Aedona follows*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 06:05 *a chunk of shell breaks from the side and a little nose pokes through the gap*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:06 *gasps again, stepping closer* I see it...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 06:23 *leans forward and picks some of the shell away from the hole, helping the hatchling break through more of the shell*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:26 *reaches for the egg* I wanna help.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 06:28 *quickly pushes her hand away* No, don't- *shows her the bandages on his fingertips. They're charred black*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:39 *looks alarmed* Does it hurt?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 06:44 No. *rubs his index finger and his thumb together* I can't feel anything in my fingertips.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:46 Why?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:46 *her eyes widen some more* Is it that burned?!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 06:49 *shakes his head* No no, I've had no feeling for quite a long time now. Might as well take advantage of it.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 06:54 Why?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:00 Why not? Unless you're asking why I have no feeling, in which I say I can't tell you.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 07:03 You don't know why you don't have feeling??
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:07 I know why. I just can't tell you.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 07:10 Why?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:15 It's a secret
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 07:24 W-- *senses more movement and turns her attention back to the egg again*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:26 *a massive chunk of the egg breaks and the baby Naedyrm tumbles out of it*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 07:34 *beams* It's ADORABLE!!! *reaches out to pick up the baby Naedyrm*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 07:35 *leans over and grabs one of Jane's arms gently but firmly* Jane, no, careful.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:46 Oh, let her take the hatchling. What's the worst it could do?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.4 07:48 *comes forward to see the baby Naedyrm. Stands beside Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 07:50 Are you sure it's not blazing hot as well?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 07:51 Only the shell was hot.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 08:09 Alright... *lets Jane's arm go*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.4 08:09 Jane, be careful with it.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 08:10 *picks the baby Naedyrm up*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 08:10 Hi!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 08:10 *the hatchling squeaks in protest*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.4 08:21 Hey! *lowers the hatchling back to the ground, though she doesn't take her hands off it* It's okay!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 08:21 *looks over at Hayden* Is he alright?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 08:24 *looks at Hayden as well* He's exhausted. This is why Naedyrm only hatch the eggs on rare occasions. It is no easy feat.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 08:31 Will he be okay?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 08:33 Yeah. Just needs rest.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 08:34 Speaking of which, I think it's time we get him home, myself included.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 08:40 Alright...thanks for the help. And please thank Hayden for me.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 08:41 I will.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.4 08:43 Goodbye.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.4 18:04 *with Eira's help he takes Hayden back home*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 04:29 [I'm just popping online for a few minutes to say that I have an exam tomorrow and some more reading to do, so I will not be available to chat and RP for a while. Also nvm the "Goodbye" part; I forgot Siegfried can't teleport. XP]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 04:29 [I'll be back later. See you soon!]
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:14 Is there anything I could do for Hayden?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 06:22 No he'll be alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:32 Oh, okay...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:32 Well, I need to get back now. Thank you both again and see you around.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 06:36 See you.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:42 *returns to Azahar*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:42 *actually nvm, she is about to return to Azahar, but pauses:* One more thing...is it safe to teleport the hatchling?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 06:46 Should be.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 06:58 Alright. Bye! *heads back to Azahar*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 07:07 *tries to lift up the hatchling again*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 07:33 *the hatchling protests some more*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:38 Here, you're being a little rough with it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:40 Let go and let me try. *Jane sets the hatchling down reluctantly*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:45 *gently slides her hand under the hatchling's armpits and lifts, supporting the hatchling's hindquarters with her other hand*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:48 *nvm that*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:54 *looks at its shadow legs, thinking for a few moments, then gently puts her hand on its back and begins to lift it*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:55 *uses her other hand to support it as she tries to bring it in towards her body and flip it over gently so it can be cradled against her like a baby*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 07:55 *has created a bit of magic over her chest and abdomen in case its shadow legs make contact with her*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 07:57 *as soon as its on its back it wraps its tiny wings over its shadow legs' shoulders*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:02 *cradles it gently, smiling at it a little**then looks up at some of the others (e.g. Saxon and Eira)* I got it. We can go to Panthea now.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 08:03 Can I hold it?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:03 Maybe once we get to Panthea.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 08:06 Hatchling: *yawns*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:09 Somebody's sleepy already...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:09 Anyway, let's go. Hold onto me.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 08:10 *nods**goes over to Mayhem and Cadmael and holds out a hand to them*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 08:10 *holds onto Aedona, staring at the Naedyrm*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.5 08:13 *holds onto Cadmael and grabs Aedona's hand. Doesn't make eye contact. Mostly tries to focus on either the Naedyrm or whatever Cadmael is looking at*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:17 *was more focused on the Naedyrm, so she only realizes Mayhem is holding onto her hand a second after he grabs on**tenses up a lot*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.5 08:17 *takes Cadmael's free hand and holds out her other hand to Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:33 *nvm those last two posts, Mayhem actually grabbed Eira's hand and Eira, in turn, put a hand on Aedona's shoulder*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.5 08:34 *nvm, Mayhem takes Eira's hand and holds onto Cadmael. He still does focus mostly on the Naedyrm and Cadmael*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:36 *also focuses on the Naedyrm, though she glances at Saxon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:45 *once Saxon grabs on she tessers everybody to the place in Panthea where the party was set up*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:49 *since it's still chilly in Otemjar and Sahlem, the party has been set up in more equatorial Nakada*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.5 08:54 *is fairly quick to find a spot to sit and keep an eye on Jane. Cadmael decides it'd be more fun to be in his feline form*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 08:59 *the ground is sandy and very light in color**huge reddish rock formations surround them; they are down in a canyon of sorts, really*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 09:01 *a spring can be heard trickling not too far away**they are in a clearing surrounded by various paths that lead between rock formations--like being in the hub of a wheel made up of canyon spokes*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 09:10 *it's still chilly out, but it's not too bad**tables have been set up with food and wrapped up presents, as well as a canopy/beach tent type of thing so they can keep out of the sun if they want to*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 09:10 *there are also some chairs, of course*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 09:14 Can I hold it?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.5 09:18 Alright... *instructs her briefly on how to hold it and cradle it and then gently passes it over to her*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 09:30 *cradles the hatchling, looking down at it*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.5 09:34 *
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.5 09:34 *Cadmael opens a small portal and helps Karma through, telling her she can decide if she wants to be human or feline. She chooses human*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 09:59 Karma!! *beams and rushes over to her* Aedona: Be careful! You don't want to drop the hatchling or trip!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 10:00 *dang it, she said "Amy," not "Karma"*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.5 10:01 Amy, look!!
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.5 15:41 Amy: Woah, what is that?!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 00:23 It's a Naedyrm!
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.6 01:42 Amy: What's a Naedyrm?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 05:00 It's like a Drakoo but bigger!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 05:01 And it has lots of wings!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 05:01 But this one's smaller because it's a baby.
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.6 05:16 Amy: It's so cute!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 05:30 Yeah!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.6 06:30 *picks up a flower crown off of one of the tables and comes over to Jane* Here's the birthday crown for the birthday girl. *puts the crown on Jane's head*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 06:32 *beams&
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 06:32 **
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.6 06:32 *looks at Amy* You want to hold the Naedyrm too, don't you?
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.6 07:15 Amy: Yes!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.6 07:23 Jane, why don't you let her hold the Naedyrm? There's some presents for you on the table. It'd be a bit hard to hold the Naedyrm and open your presents at the same time.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 07:24 Okay! *steps closer to Amy and, with some help from Aedona, holds the Naedyrm out to her*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.6 07:58 Amy: *takes the Naedyrm* Awwwwh.... It's so cute.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:05 It's the cutest thing ever!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:27 *looks around* Where are the presents? Aedona: *points* Right over there.
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.6 08:39 Amy: Cadmael! Come look at this! *Cadmael: *trots over to Amy* Yeah! It's a pretty little creature, isn't it? *Amy: It's pretty!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:40 *has gone over to open the presents*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:41 *opens a present that was contributed by Eira**it's a blank/new journal*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.6 08:45 *has left a present for Jane from himself and Cadmael*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:49 I got another journal!! *holds it up for a few seconds before going after another present**this time she opens the one from Mayhem and Cadmael*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.6 08:55 *the gift consists of a blue jade bracelet, presented by the little catlike Midden creature Cadmael is always seen with*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 08:58 *gasps* Hi!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 09:05 *looks slightly confused* Another pet?? Aedona: No, I think the creature is giving you something.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 09:05 OH, okay!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 09:10 *goes to take the blue jade bracelet* Thank you!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.6 18:52 *the creature mews and wags its tail*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.6 20:47 It's pretty!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.6 22:00 *the creature sits in the box, purring fairly quietly*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 04:52 *holds the bracelet up to show it off*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 04:53 Can I put it on?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.7 05:02 Of course.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 05:03 *puts it on**finds that it's big on her, so she shoves it onto her upper arm and then pets the Midden creature*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.7 07:40 *the creature accepts being pet, continually waggimg its tail**
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 07:41 *after petting the creature for a few moments, she turns and opens another present*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 07:43 *this present is from Aedona**it's another set of a couple remote control cars (Jane had broken one of her older remote control cars)*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 07:43 More cars?!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.7 07:49 *smiles* Yes, more cars.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 07:50 YAY!! *tries to open the package to no avail*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.7 07:50 *sees that Jane is quickly getting frustrated and helps her open the package and get out her cars*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.7 07:57 *they don't come with batteries, though she has this covered/has batteries ready on one of the tables*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.7 07:59 *helps get the cars and controller ready*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.7 08:10 *goes over to Amy and holds out a controller* You wanna race?
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.7 21:20 Yeah! *looks for a place to put the Naedyrm. Doesnt want to put it on the ground*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.8 05:56 *notices what Amy is doing**thinks quickly, then runs up to Cadmael* Cadmael!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.8 06:08 Do you wanna hold the Naedyrm?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.8 06:25 Cadmael: I would love to, but I think I'd rather stay in this form for now. Maybe ask someone else.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.8 06:29 Aw, okay... *looks around and then runs over to Mayhem* Do you wanna hold the Naedyrm for Amy?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.8 07:37 I don't see why not.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.8 07:46 *turns towards Amy* Amy! *waves for her to come over*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.9 04:05 Amy: *brings the Naedyrm to Mayhem. He takes it*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:07 Thanks!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:07 *hands Amy the controller*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:07 *a
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:24 *races Amy for a while**once she's content with racing, she goes to open another present, which is one from Saxon*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:38 *had gotten Jane an rc plane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:42 Ooo...what is it?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:42 It looks like a little plane! Jane: What's a plane?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:43 Um...you know the flying cars on Ahntor? Jane: Yeah! Eira: It's like one of those, except planes are a lot bigger.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:43 Oh! So this is like a remote control flying car?!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:43 Uh...sure, kind of.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:51 *smiles*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 05:52 I want it to fly! *takes it out of its package*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 05:56 You might need to charge it first.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:06 Aww...for how long?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 06:08 Not super long. Maybe about ten,fifteen minutes.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:30 Okay!!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:31 *picks it up, then looks around* Where do I charge it?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 06:32 Here, I can take it home and have it charge for you and then bring it back when it's ready.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:37 Okay. *lets Eira take the plane away and tesser off*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:47 *looks around at everyone, bouncing slightly* Are planes as fast as flying cars?!
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 06:51 I'm certain most planes are faster
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:52 Really?!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:52 Is my plane faster too?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 06:54 *chuckles* I don't think so.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:55 Aww, why?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 06:55 Well, are your remote control cars faster than normal cars?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 06:56 No.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 06:56 There you have it.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 06:57 *reappears* Alright, it's charging.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:05 Can I feed the Naedyrm?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 07:05 *is rather hungry, so she goes to one of the tables and starts putting food on a plate*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:14 *her question was mostly directed at Mayhem since he's holding the hatchling*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:15 Of course! Do you know what they eat?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:16 Uh...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 07:17 Practically anything at this age, but meat and fruit are recommended.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:17 Yeah, that!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:21 I'll see what I can get, then. *gives the Naedyrm to Jane and goes to get food*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:24 I wanna help! *follows close behind him*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:27 Alright. What do you want to feed it?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:35 Uh...fruit!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:38 *starts grabbing different fruit and loading the plate*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 07:41 *gets around to adding fruit to her plate at about the same time Mayhem adds fruit to his**accidentally goes for the same fruit he does at one point*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:44 *freezes for a moment, then slowly retracts his hand*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 07:45 *when her hand touched his she instinctively looked at him and froze*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:46 *looks up at them both, frowning slightly* What's the matter?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 07:46 *Jane's voice helps her regain focus a bit**quickly pulls her hand back*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 07:54 *clears his throat* ...My bad..
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 07:59 *says a bit more loudly* What's the matter?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:01 Nothing...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:02 Why are you acting all weird?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:02 *is still looking at them both*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:06 It's nothing, Jane. *starts picking at different fruit*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:09 *has turned and started walking away*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:09 You two never acted like this before...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:10 What's wrong?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:13 Nothing's wrong..
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:15 You and Mommy used to talk all the time...why won't you talk to each other now?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:17 It's just... Complicated.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:19 What's that mean?
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:20 Hard to explain.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:20 *stops, but can't bring herself to look back at Jane and Mayhem*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:21 But I wanna know!
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:29 *sighs, putting down the plate and speaking in a semi-quiet voice* Because your mommy is married and I do not want to come in between that.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:36 Why does talking to her come in between her marriage?
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:37 She's married and you still hugged her and--
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:38 *turns around* Jane, you
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:38 *you're being rude!
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:39 *looks at Aedona, then remembers what Aedona told her as soon as they came back to Urmukka after spending time with Mayhem after Erikas' death*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:39 Oh! *glances at Saxon* Oh...sorry...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 08:42 *has turned away*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 08:44 *one glance at Saxon leaves her visibly ashamed**turns and quickly walks away into one of the thin canyons that branches out from this clearing*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:45 *looks around at everyone and fidgets with her feet* I'm sorry...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:47 *picks up the plate again* You don't have to be sorry. Come on, let's feed the Naedyrm.
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:49 *is staring down at the Naedyrm**her voice is much quieter than usual* I said something I shouldn't have and now I've hurt people...
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:51 They'll be alright.
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:51 Come on.. *holds out his hand to Jane*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:52 I hope so...
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:53 *said that before Mayhem continued and held out his hand to her*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:53 *looks at his hand**hesitates, then goes to trade the Naedyrm for the plate*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:54 *makes the trade*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:55 *picks up a piece of fruit and holds it over the Naedyrm*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:55 *often glances at where Aedona went*
2>Mayhem (Ikri. God of Night), ??yo.2020,Jun.9 08:56 *the Naedyrm opens its mouth and sort of snaps at the fruit*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 08:57 *paces for several moments before deciding to go after Aedona*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 08:59 *gasps a little and smiles a bit, turning her attention more fully to the Naedyrm and dropping the fruit into its mouth*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:00 *the hatchling eats the food rather quickly and squeaks a bit*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 09:01 *has continued fast-walking across the sandy bottom of the gorge and has climbed over fallen boulders that are in the way**has had the urge to cry but suppressed it*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 09:01 I think it wants more. *gets another piece and holds the piece to its mouth*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:02 *once again the hatchling quickly takes the food*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:03 *calls out for Aedona from time to time*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 09:04 *hesitates but keeps going the first time she hears him**ignores him the second time, but stops the third time*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 09:06 *looks around a bit and then sits down on the sand under a tropical tree, waiting for him to catch up**wraps her arms around her knees*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:07 *when he does catch up he sits beside her*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.9 09:08 *keeps feeding it for a bit**then turns towards Amy* Hey Amy, do you wanna feed the Naedyrm too?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 09:09 *doesn't look at him**just looks straight ahead*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:22 .... *takes a deep breath* I know you don't want to talk about it...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 09:27 *buries her face under her arms*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:32 *would've told Jane to stop talking earlier if Mayhem and Aedona hadn't kept addressing her (Eira didn't want to interrupt them and trusted that they could handle it)**regrets not intervening*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.9 09:33 *considers following her parents but decides to remain in the clearing**sits on a rock on the edge of the clearing, away from the others*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.9 15:09 *even though Aedona isn't looking at him, he keeps his head turned away from her to hide the hurt in his eyes* ... Are you really okay with how we're living?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.9 23:14 *her voice is muffled* ...I don't want to hurt you...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 00:40 I know you don't...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 01:17 I'm trying to be as understanding as possible. I also don't want you beating yourself up to spare my feelings.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 05:27 I never wanted to hurt you...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 05:30 After everything that happened with Auceaster, I want you and Eira to be happy...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 05:52 And what about yourself? It's pointless if you're unhappy.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:00 No it isn't.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 06:06 It is.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:09 My unhappiness is my own doing. Don't make my problems yours...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 06:14 You know you have your options.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:17 *doesn't respond to that*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 06:26 You're just as important as we are.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:32 You've been through so much worse...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 06:33 I don't care who's had it worst.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:41 ...You know what I did and it was wrong...I swear I won't do it again...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 06:53 Yeah, sure, it was wrong. But where have I been all this time? It's hard to blame you...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 06:59 *raises her head slightly, then lowers it again and shakes her head a little*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 07:09 I'd much rather you be happier..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 07:11 Don't...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 07:54 Don't tell you how I feel?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 07:54 *is trying to focus on controlling her breathing*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 07:56 I don't want to... *trails off*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 08:05 Stop worrying about hurting me. I can live with the hurt if it means you're happier, so if seeing you in a better place means leaving the picture...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 08:12 No!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 08:13 *is trembling slightly and sniffles a bit* Don't say things like that!
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 08:15 *wipes her face on her arms and finally lifts her head to look at him* I couldn't do that to you and Eira...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 08:21 I can't help but feel like you're suffocating, trying to see my progress...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 08:29 How I feel about your progress shouldn't matter.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 08:31 It does matter.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 08:47 I've brought much of this upon myself...don't punish yourself for what I've done.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 08:59 It cannot be helped..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 09:22 Of course it can...just...let me deal with my own problems...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 18:18 You really feel that way, huh?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 18:51 ...I don't know what I feel.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 20:20 You really shouldn't have to feel this way.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 22:22 It's better this way.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.10 22:53 I don't think so.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 23:50 Then what do you think would be better for you and Eira?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.10 23:51 You and Eira have wanted things to be the way they were for so long. I'm just trying to make that happen.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 00:14 I dont want your attempts to help me to cause your own suffering.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 00:17 If I'm truly worried about anyone it's Eira. It's not exactly a situation where we can win. I want her to have more freedom, which isn't exactly something she's had..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 01:28 I don't follow...she chooses to stay with us because she wants to.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 01:36 If she's anything like either of us, then she's staying close because she almost feels obligated to.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 03:16 [I will be at least an hour late again tonight. Sorry. XP]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 03:17 *hesitates*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 03:18 I don't know...I don't get that impression from her...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 03:22 How often has she been babysitting Jane when she could have been out doing her own thing? There is no doubt she loves her family and wants to help, but even she needs her freedom.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 06:10 *doesn't answer*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 06:42 She needs to be able to do things for herself, otherwise she's just as caged as I have been.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 06:56 She's already proven she can take care of herself. She has a house of her own...she lives in Urmukka with us because she chooses to.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:03 I never said she couldn't take care of herself.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:07 So what are you suggesting?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:08 That watching her family fall apart is better than babysitting her sister every so often?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:18 No. I'm suggesting we do what will allow her better opportunity to live her own life. She spends so much time trying to see us through and that hurts to watch.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:20 *looks down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:26 ...But if we threw everything away...all that time she spent would've been for nothing...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:26 I can't hurt her like that...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:33 Is it any better to have her keep trying, even though there are little results?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:36 There weren't little results...things were getting better...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:36 I just made a mistake...I shouldn't have come here...I should've stayed home and things would've still been better...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:41 Things would not have been better. The tension would still be there.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:43 We just need more time...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:46 How long are we willing to keep this up?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:48 *doesn't answer**squirms a little, visibly strained**gets up and starts walking away slowly*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:54 I don't want Eira to see her family fall apart, but I also don't want to hold either of you back.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 07:57 You're not holding us back...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 07:58 I am, though.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 08:03 If it wasn't for how I've been acting there wouldn't be this much of a problem...you're not the problem...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 08:07 And you likely wouldn't have been acting the way you have if I'd been able to help myself be more available. I might not be the whole problem but I am a big part of it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 08:12 *puts her head in her hands* Don't try to justify what I did...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 08:17 I'm not justifying anything.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 08:36 I'm not...I'm not feeling well...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 08:47 I need to...um...I need to... *shakes her head a little with her hands still over her face*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 08:51 *sighs*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 09:17 I just...need time...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 09:19 *tessers back home*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 09:20 *isn't very aware of her surroundings**trips and bumps into a small table, knocking some things onto the floor**backs off quickly and presses up against a wall, her fingers curled and her hands against her chin, shaking a little*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 09:21 *back against
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.11 09:25 *stays there for a minute before heading to the kitchen to get something**instead of going to some other planet and/or hiding in a room like she usually does after retrieving something from the kitchen, however, she wanders out the back door*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.11 18:04 *stays where he is*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.11 19:12 *is out taking a walk around the edge of the woods*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 04:32 *walks away from the house and into the woods*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 04:56 *is mostly lost in thought*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 04:57 *wanders through the woods for a while before sitting down with her back against a tree*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 05:07 *rolls up a sleeve, but after some hesitation her hand with the knife in it sinks to the ground**just sits there and stares ahead*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 05:48 A barebacked(no package on back) black falcon with maroon-tipped feathers lands on the tree above Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 05:51 *doesn't move*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:01 Bird: *drops down a couple branches*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 06:06 *even though she can probably hear the bird landing on each branch, she still doesn't move at all*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:09 Bird: *stares at Aedona, then the knife, then calls out into the woods*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 06:11 *normally she would flinch at the sudden noise coming from right above her, but she remains still*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:26 *doesn't exactly come running, but he does come to where the falcon called. Before showing himself he assesses the situation. Remains in the cover of bushes* You really do need help, ma'am.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 06:34 *doesn't look in his direction**her gaze is unfocused and her tone is quiet* Don't want to hurt anymore...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:38 Care to elaborate?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 06:40 *goes silent*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:44 Either way, I feel ya. *comes out into the open and sits down, but not before picking up the knife*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:44 *the falcon flies off*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 06:48 *her grip on the knife is rather loose, so it was easy for him to take it away, and she still doesn't move*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 06:57 *fiddles with the knife, slicing the ground* You don't want to hurt anyone, but still manage to anyway. I get that. It's hard.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:04 *doesn't say anything*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 07:09 You can talk to me if you'd like. Or better, just talk. Like I'm not here. You can trust me.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:15 *remains silent*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 07:24 *moves to sit beside her. Puts his hand on her shoulder* The woods are no place for this kind of behavior.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:28 *though she doesn't visibly move, she leans ever so slightly towards him and he can probably feel the pressure between his hand and her shoulder increase a little bit*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 07:33 *sort of turns that action into a bit of a hug* Will you come with me?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:36 *still doesn't say anything, but she hasn't become more tense/she clearly is not making any efforts to resist him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 07:40 *sits still for awhile* Come on. *stands up, hoping to help Aedona to her feet*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:41 *stands up along with him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 07:53 I know a good place for you to rest. Away from people and safe from the forces of nature. *starts walking. Leaves the knife stabbed in the ground*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 07:55 *walks with him, still looking straight ahead*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 08:03 *doesn't say much during this walk, but he does constantly check on Aedona*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 08:07 *just moves along with him, her expression not changing**seems conscious of her surroundings enough to step over things that could potentially trip her*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 08:32 *leads Aedona to Kira's gravesite, then to another hidden grove of cherry blossoms* I'll let you stay here for now.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 08:37 *her eyes seem a little more focused now*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 08:43 *stopped when he stopped*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 09:21 It's a pleasant area. Perfect for you. *sits down in the center of the trees*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:23 *sits down as well*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.12 09:29 *gets up and walks around the edges of the clearing a bit aimlessly since she figures outright pacing would be rude**wants to check on her parents, but doesn't want to interrupt them if they're talking to one another*
6>Jane (Demigod), 9yo.2020,Jun.12 09:39 *has mostly stopped glancing towards the place Aedona and Saxon disappeared off to and has cheered up considerably*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:42 *her sleeve is still rolled up and her gaze is locked on something in the distance*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 09:43 *just sits with Aedona for awhile*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 09:43 *follows her gaze*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:45 *after some time passes, her faraway look seems to subside somewhat when the wind picks up a little and sends the branches of the trees flailing*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:46 *finally moves on her own, her head tilting up a little bit towards the blossoms*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 09:47 *smiles a bit*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:50 *after a few minutes tears come to her eyes*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:52 *looks down**her expression has changed from blank to ashamed* Can't let him go...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 09:53 Let who go?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 09:54 Malaucay...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 18:05 Malaucay, huh? That is understandable. He's a good man.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 20:01 ...I'm not good...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 20:05 What makes you say that?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 23:03 They just want their family back...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.12 23:07 Doesn't just about everyone?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.12 23:13 But they could've had it back...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 00:34 And it's okay to be sorry for that.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 01:12 But you implied that you've given up, or at least you're thinking about it. Is that right?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 02:56 *one thing to note is that he's been speaking in a fairly quiet voice*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 03:55 *tenses up, trying not to cry* Can't keep going like this...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 05:01 May I ask what's been going on?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 05:08 *hunches over a bit more, her face hidden by her hair* Everything hurts...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 05:18 I'll bet it does.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 05:55 *covers her face with her hands*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 05:59 I won't push you to tell me anything. It's not my place. I am here, though. If you need anything I will do my best to help.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:01 *trembles slightly every few seconds, going silent again**stays in this position for a while and gradually stops trembling**wipes her face*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:02 *lowers her hands, looking at them* ...You know Malaucay.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:02 Sort of.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:06 *turns her head very slightly towards him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:08 I've seen him around and read about him. History has not been good to him.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:10 But you know he's good.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:10 I do.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:13 ...How?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:14 He got a second chance. The only Viscount to be allowed back in the valley.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:26 ...The only one...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:35 It's an impressive feat
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:46 ...What am I going to tell Saxon...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 06:49 I don't know. What do you have to tell him?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:55 *pushes her fingers into her hair and makes fists, clenching her hair and tensing up some more* I don't...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:56 I don't want...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 06:56 I don't want to think...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 07:08 *gently grabs her wrists* Then don't. Just take some time to settle down.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 07:10 *flinches and lets go of her hair*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 07:18 *guides her hands back down to her lap*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 07:31 *her back hurts from being hunched over for too long**fidgets with her hands shortly after they're placed on her lap*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 07:40 Is there anything you need?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 07:45 I don't know...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 07:53 *says after a minute of silence:* Am I...am I crazy? *there's a hint of fear in her voice*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 07:58 Based off of what I know about you, no. You just seemed exhausted and conflicted.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 07:58 *seem
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:01 But I've...done similar things...a-a-and I...I just...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:06 I do not believe you are crazy.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:12 ...It's my little girl's birthday...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:12 How could I be like this on my little girl's birthday?...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:14 It happens
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:21 We all
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:21 To who?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:22 We all have
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:22 (FRICKIN)
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:22 (I keeo hitting enter with my bandaged pinky)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:24 [Oof. XP]
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:24 I'd say it happens to everyone but that is not true.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:27 It's unfortunate that today of all days you break down, but it happens to the best of us.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:33 I used to be better than this...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:45 As did I. You're not alone there.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:53 *finally looks up at him for a few moments*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 08:53 Why are...?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 08:57 Hm?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 09:21 Why are you helping?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 09:21 Why not help?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 09:45 Surely there are more important things or people in your life...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 09:46 There really isn't...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 09:51 *looks at him again*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 10:03 It's alright, though. I've lived this way for awhile.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 10:11 I thought you were close to Pierce and Wren?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 10:21 We care for each other, yes, but there's not much I can do for them anymore. They take care of each other. Always have.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 18:22 But yes. They are important to me, but they live mostly within a completely safe environment. They have no need for my help.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 19:36 *looks down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.13 19:36 I shouldn't need someone to take care of me...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.13 20:13 No one should. There's no need to feel bad.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.14 01:28 ...You don't know-- *cuts herself off*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.14 02:04 No I dont think I do know whatever you were going to say.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.14 05:00 ...That's fine...it's not your business and I shouldn't make it anyone else's problem...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.14 05:00 *looks up at the cherry trees* We...are still in Urmukka, right??
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.14 05:42 We are. You have never known about this place. It's a pretty well kept secret.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.14 05:46 It's a lovely secret...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.14 06:04 Thank you. I've taken care of this place since I was young.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.14 06:12 *the sun comes out from behind some clouds and warms her face**closes her eyes for a minute before saying:* Why did you take me here if it's a secret?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.14 21:26 Because I felt it was the place to bring you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.14 21:50 (more and more ideas about Litho. Both dark and heartwarming. Big oof.)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.15 01:13 [Alright. I am curious regarding what the big oof is.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.15 04:18 *nods slightly, looking out at the cherry trees again**her eyes seem a bit shifty now, as if she is thinking rapidly*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.15 21:56 I would hope you do not tell anyone of this place and as long as you come here, you do nothing to harm yourself. It's sacred ground of sorts. A safe space.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.16 00:31 I won't tell anyone...I don't even really know how to get here, anyway...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.16 00:33 [BTW, if I don't make it online tonight, it's because it's thunderstorming and I wouldn't be surprised if a lightning strike knocks something out and prevents Internet access on our part.]
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.16 00:37 You'll see the way when you leave.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.16 04:59 *nods a little*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.16 05:17 Stay here as long as you feel too off. If you get hungry I will bring you food.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.16 06:31 Okay...thank you...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.16 06:52 It's no problem at all.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 07:43 *has tried to distract herself through interacting with Jane to no avail**finally goes looking for her parents*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 07:44 *summons her wings and flies around and lands on some of the rock formations to make searching for them faster*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.16 07:46 If you would like to be alone for a time, I think I'll go home and make some tea. *looks up at the trees* Been awhile since I've used cherry blossom.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.16 07:48 *nods a little again* I think I'd like that...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 07:48 *finds Saxon after a little while of searching*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 07:49 Dad...?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.16 07:49 *gets up and picks some of the blossoms, then leaves*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 07:50 *stares at the ground* Hm?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:09 Are you okay?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:11 ......Not really..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:23 What happened?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:25 An argument I guess..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:26 Where did Mom go?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:31 Home, I think.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:42 *is visibly alarmed*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:42 You sure?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:48 I think so..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:50 Maybe I should go look for her then...she--
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:51 I don't trust her when she's alone after something like this...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:52 *nods*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 08:59 Is there anything I can do to help you?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 09:00 I'll be alright.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 09:01 *hesitates, then gets on her knees beside him and hugs him* Are you sure?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 09:04 *leans toward Eira* Yeah..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 09:06 I love you so much...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 09:06 I love you, too..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 19:41 Things...things should get better given enough time...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.16 20:05 *doesn't respond*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.16 23:02 I'll make sure of it...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 00:33 Don't try too hard..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 01:17 There isn't such a thing as trying too hard to help after everything that happened to you two...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 01:41 *simply sighs in response*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 05:29 ...What's wrong?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 05:51 I just.. *shakes his head* Best go check on your mother..
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:03 *hesitates, then nods and says "Okay" quietly**gives him a reassuring squeeze before letting go and tessering back to Urmukka*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:11 *looks for Aedona first at the treehouse and then in the Surtil house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:22 *goes out and looks around, thinking quickly*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:32 *runs into town, looking for Raina*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:43 Raina: *is taking a walk around the center of town*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:44 *finds her fairly quickly* Raina!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:44 Have you seen my mom?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:45 Raina: No, I haven't. I did hear someone at home before I left. Maybe that was her?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:48 Maybe...how long ago was that?
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:50 Not long ago. No more than an hour, ish?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:56 Alright...um...did you hear or see anything that hinted at where she could have gone? That probably was her...
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 06:57 I heard the back door open. Not the front.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:00 The back door?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:00 Huh...um, thanks.
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:03 Mhm.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:05 *hurries back to the Surtil house and goes behind the house**looks around a bit and even calls out Aedona's name several times*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:07 *thinks for a minute and then decides to ask Pierce if he's been around the Surtil house and has noticed anything**summons her wings and goes to the Siegfried house*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:09 *to Siegfried's
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:10 *lands and knocks on the door*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:15 *answers* Eira? What do you need?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:27 Have you been at the Surtil house recently? If so, did you see my mom?
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:37 I haven't seen her.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:39 *calls from the other room* Pierce, who is it? *Pierce: It's Eira!
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:49 What she want?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:49 Oh, alright...when's the last time you were at the house?
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:49 *said that before Siegfried asked another question*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:53 *calls back to Siegfried* She's looking for her mom! *looks back at Eira* I haven't been there today, sorry.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 07:57 Oh, okay...sorry to bother you... *hides her wings and starts walking away*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 07:58 Eira! Come inside a moment, please!
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 08:23 Um...alright... *comes in*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 08:25 *sets the table and brings out some food for Wren and Pierce*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 08:28 Your mother is safe.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 08:32 Where is she?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 08:33 At a bit of a hideout of mine. Someplace quiet and peaceful.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 08:56 How did she get there?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 08:57 I brought her there, of course.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 09:05 *hesitates, visibly confused* What happened?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 09:06 Nothing really happened. I wanted her out of the woods since it could be dangerous.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.17 19:43 *says rather quietly* What was she doing in the woods?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 19:49 Nothing much
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 20:10 I could tell she was not in a good place. *grabs a knife and starts cutting up a bunch of fruit on the counter*
8>Pierce (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.17 20:19 *as much as he wants to listen, he turns his attention away to focus on his sister*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 00:34 *her gaze is focused on the fruit and the knife* I need to check on her.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 00:41 *glances at Eira* She's alright for now. Give her a bit of time.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 05:10 *looks skeptical, but doesn't say anything*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:16 I guess you could come with when I bring her this food and tea, but I ask that you do not enter the area.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 05:22 Alright.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:25 *puts the fruit in a bowl and grabs the teapot and a couple cups* I'm leaving now. *goes outside*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 05:27 *follows him*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:29 *heads back out to the grove, silently making sure Eira doesn't follow him into the area. Brings the fruit and tea to Aedona* I'm sorry I was gone so long.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 05:32 *tries to watch from a distance**feels like calling out to Aedona but stays silent, as she doesn't want to anger Siegfried*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:32 *flinches slightly the moment he speaks, as if she didn't notice him until then* No...it's...fine...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:35 I brought you some fruit and tea.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:38 Thank you.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:38 *takes a cup of tea but doesn't touch the fruit**her stomach doesn't feel well*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:39 I'm sorry you have to go through so much.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:48 Don't be...this doesn't have anything to do with you...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:49 It doesn't, but I still feel for my people.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:52 *hesitates slightly* I'm not Urmukkan.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 05:56 What do you mean? Of course you are.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 05:59 I am a Panthean who married an Urmukkan. I have not exactly assimilated into the culture, though I have the utmost respect for Urmukkans.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:01 You think we care about the difference in our cultures?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:05 *shakes her head a little and sips the tea*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:09 Together or apart, you're still part of this family. There will always be that connection, even if you feel you don't deserve it.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:12 ...Even together I don't deserve it...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:19 You do, more than you know. It's something everyone deserves.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:20 There will always be someone here who cares for you, even if it's not a blood family member.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:21 *puts the tea down slowly and, leaning forward a bit, covers her face with her hands*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:32 Hey... *puts his hand on her shoulder* Don't think too much right now.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:33 I can't...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:35 I can't stop thinking about how Eira will react to finding out I can't let go...
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.18 06:47 *tenses up and holds still, staring in Aedona's direction*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:50 She's your daughter. Would she really think so much less of you?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:51 I don't know...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:52 I don't know what all of the Surtils will make of me...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 06:54 They will be alright.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 06:55 *sniffles**her voice is muffled and her tone clearly sounds like she is crying* How would you feel if your wife f-- *cuts herself off*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 07:07 I haven't married but I know I'd feel betrayed or that I wasn't good enough. But if I loved someone, I'd want whatever makes her smile. Guess it's just a part of who I am.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 07:43 ...I don't want to hurt them...that's the last thing I want...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 07:49 That means you're a good person.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 09:53 But it's come to a point where no matter what I do I'll hurt them...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 09:54 At that point you do what will hurt you the least. It almost sounds like you're the deciding factor here.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 20:01 What hurts me the least hurts them the most...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 20:06 Would it really change their view of you that much?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 20:23 You're causing yourself so much pain by trying so hard to keep everyone else from hurting. You should do what will help you most. Physically and mentally.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 20:45 (I am in shipping today so I can periodically check this)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:34 [Oh, okay.]
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 21:35 (Ye. Also I GOT A STABBY STABBY)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:37 [XD Now are you truly Blitz, Master of Shivs?]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:37 [I'll be just on here/not on Hangouts for a little while BTW. I don't have much time to be on here.]
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 21:38 (I can't be super active)
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:39 [Alright.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:39 You mean I should be selfish?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 21:41 Yes. It's pkay to want to take care of yourself.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:43 It's not okay if it comes at the cost of harming those you love.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:45 *has managed to stop crying for the most part**wipes her face on her sleeve*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 21:48 You just make your family's love seem so fragile.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:57 *turns and looks at him intensely* You don't understand. They've been waiting for decades for things to be the way they were again. My husband went through years of h**l that you couldn't even begin to imagine. I'm surprised that my daughter is as well
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 21:58 off as she is today after what she had to go through. They've only ever really wanted one thing, and I've tried to give it to them and I have finally learned that I can't.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 22:03 Even after years of waiting for the same thing I can't and because of that I'm worthless.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 22:07 Oh I can imagine what going through h*** is like.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 22:08 But I never once thought less of my family for not being able to help me get my life back together.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 22:19 I would utterly deserve it if they thought less of me...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 22:20 I would utterly deserve it if Malaucay thought less of me...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.18 22:26 I don't think so.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.18 22:26 [I gtg. See you later!]
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 00:47 You are not perfect. Your feelings aren't any less valid than theirs because they've been through worse.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 05:22 If acting on my feelings hurts those I love then their feelings are far more valid than mine.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 05:44 You need to stop believing that. That feeling of worthlessness will only bring you and your loved ones further down. You think they cannot sense the state you're in?
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 05:46 ...I've tried hiding it so that they won't be affected...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 05:55 *sighs* This confliction will tear you apart. *sits back against a tree*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:01 ...I don't understand why...I've endured so much in the past...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:02 I know I have to do something and I will do something, just...not today...not on her birthday...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:05 Then go ahead and just think about what you'll do. Take the time to settle down.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:09 The more I think about what I might want to do the harder it is to settle down...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:13 Then do just one of those things.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:16 *nods slightly and stares at the ground, fidgeting*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:20 I can stay here with you if you'd like.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:20 If not I can go.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:23 ...I'm sorry...
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:25 I really shouldn't be burdening you with myself or my problems. I should probably be the one to go.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:26 You have nothing to be sorry for.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 06:43 I should be able to take care of myself..
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 06:50 I do believe we all need someone to take care of us sometimes.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 09:18 Yes, sometimes...but not very often.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 09:21 Some need help more than others. Whether or not someone is willing to accept that help is another thing. Please don't let that pride be a hindrance.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 20:11 So it's better to be an unnecessary burden on others?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 20:29 How many people actually see you as a burden, though? (Sorry I was grilling everyones lunch
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 20:36 [Eh, it's fine.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.19 20:38 Just because others may not see me as a burden doesn't mean I'm not one.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.19 21:03 I guarantee they feel the same way.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 03:06 [I will be late tonight.]
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 05:31 *chooses to drink some more tea in part so that she doesn't have to respond*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 05:50 It's not my place to make your decisions for you. It
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 05:51 *It's just painful, even as a stranger, to see you and your family's suffering.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 06:06 You shouldn't make our pain yours...everyone has enough troubles of their own.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 06:09 I won't go too far out of my way.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 06:13 *drinks some more**says quietly* The tea is really good. Thank you.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 06:20 *nods* If there's anything I can do, I'll be here in the valley for awhile longer.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 06:22 There probably isn't...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 06:29 Alright..
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.20 06:39 You don't have to stay here if you don't want to...I'll...I'll probably be here a while longer...
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 06:42 Okay. *gets up* Take care. Leaves the grove and walks a good distance from it before pausing*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.20 06:45 *hasn't left her hiding spot**is staring towards the ground*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 06:53 *comes back to get Eira*
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.20 07:11 *says nothing*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 07:22 *says quietly* come on.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.20 07:33 *her voice is barely audible* What if I want to talk to her?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 07:34 I don't know. Depends on what you want to say.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.20 07:45 *doesn't say anything in response*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 08:07 Patience and support is what she needs.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.20 08:56 I don't know if... *hesitates and shakes her head*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.20 09:57 ... I have a good idea of what's going on. All I can say is that it is a delicate matter, if I'm correct.
13>Eira (Raven), 100+yo.2020,Jun.21 04:09 *turns away from him and vanishes, tessering elsewhere*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 05:19 *looks up slightly, but says nothing*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.21 07:19 *sighs and sits down*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 07:58 ~HOURS LATER...~ *finally gets up to leave when the sun is setting*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 07:59 *looks around, seeming a bit dazed, as if she only fully realized where she was just now*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.21 08:06 *is still sitting outside the grove*
7>Saxon (Raven), 300+yo.2020,Jun.21 08:07 *had since gone back to the party and mustered the strength to help Mayhem keep Jane entertained*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:17 *thinks about returning to the party but quickly backs off on that idea**looks around, trying to figure out which direction she came from*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.21 08:33 *taps his foot to an imaginary beat*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:37 *doesn't even remember much about what the path to this place even looked like**looks up at the sky and decides to see if gaining height helps her get her bearings*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:43 *creates magic under herself and around herself and builds it up under her, pushing her upward on a growing mass of magic*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:50 *stops when she's about 50 feet in the air and looks around*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:59 *spots the lake and a small bit of town**gradually makes her magic go away, lowering herself to the ground*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 08:59 *starts walking into the woods*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 09:35 *heads through the woods in the general direction of the lake*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.21 09:42 *tails Aedona, unsure if he should talk to her again so soon*
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.21 09:58 *realizes she's being followed fairly quickly**pretends she doesn't notice for a little while before pausing to sit on a large rock*
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.21 20:01 *catches up to her* apologies. I'd be more comfortable making sure you get out of here safely.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.22 05:44 I can just tesser if anything happens.
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.22 05:48 That's true, I guess, but if you just run away I can't do anything about the danger.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.22 05:56 Would you need to if I were on another planet?
9>Siegfried (Urmukkan), ?yo.2020,Jun.22 05:58 I would like to be there so I can stop the creature and tell it off. That's my reasoning.
11>Aedona (Goddess of Twilight), 175yo.2020,Jun.22 05:59 Oh...well, alright. *gets up and starts walking*
