Susil Crags

Disaster has struck!
The Crags are a series of rocky formations with small caves and crevices throughout. Many of the lower-lying areas of the Crags have been flooded, however, with water pouring in from the Northern stretches of Moladion. Some paths have been completely submerged, and some are nothing more than a few rocky peaks sticking out of the water. The water is fairly slow moving but begins to pick speed up towards the Grotto, becoming a series of intense rapids and waterfalls as it nears the Grotto's entrance.

The area itself is still traversible. However, it can be risky. Large amounts of debris can enter the waterway, creating bridges at times but also creating dams that break and cause ocassional flash-flooding. Be careful, travelers! One wrong step and you could end up finding out where the water goes.

Note: Susil Crags will return to normal once 25 posts have been completed (or at Staff discretion). During this time, new threads will receive a 'Surprise','Disaster', and prizes.

Return to Lunar Children

Two birds on a wire

With a broken wing she carries her dreams...

Her mother was going to kill her.

If there was ever a creature closer in comparison to the sheer ferocity and protectiveness of a mother bear than an actual bear, it was Everlyse. When Lailah makes her way home in the morning, be it with her father who would come out to search for her or on her own, she was sure to get checked over for any injuries and then scolded. It wasn't the first time Lailah had wandered off, and it certainly would not be the last, but Everlyse would never approve of her adventures or worry less. On top of being out all night and hurt, no matter how little, she was also going to be spend the night with a boy. It was the biggest taboo for any of her children to be with others of the opposite sex and around the same age. Lailah did not quite understand why this worked her mother up so much, as her father was more lenient with the idea, but it wasn't really a problem for the small girl as her shy demeanor kept her away from others in general, including of the other gender. If her mother wanted to worry about any of them running off and falling in love it was definitely Semele as she was so friendly and had so many friends, both male and female alike.

She is quick to scurry after the red boy. He is quick and swift on his paws but so is she, a trait inherited from her father in order to dance in the shadows like he had, and so she keeps up with ease. He looks behind him to make sure she follows, but she would never dream of hesitating and facing the owl's wrath should she return. He escorts her to his little makeshift den, nothing like her den back in Spirane which was massive to accommodate the large family, his was small, suited for 2 pups maximum. The little white angel slipped in first, followed shortly by the boy as he makes sure they weren't followed and weren't in any danger.

Lailah curls up as tightly as possible to make room for him, her nerves are still too frayed for her to dream of sleeping yet. His body was curled up by her, their bodies combined making the den warm and comfortable. She can feel him looking on her as she lays quietly, too shy to look at him. The boy was older than her yet not bigger than her, he was also alone and that thought made her a little bit sad. Where were his parents? Did he have no one? His voice breaks her sad thoughts suddenly and turns her head to look at him. I know its not much, but its home for now. My name is Halcyon. Who are you? Where do you come from? he says, excusing her for his den despite there being nothing wrong with it and introducing himself. Halcyon. It was a name she would always remember, as the nice boy who saved her from an owl, even possibly her first real friend outside of her family."Lailah," she says softly, her voice as quiet and beautiful as a butterfly as it dances through the den. "I'm from Spirane," her words are not much but they are exactly what he is looking for. She has never been one for words and little interaction with others made her even more awkward with the concept.

Silence fills the den for a moment as sea and earth eyes stare into his with a certain pure innocence, a kindness unmatched by any. "Thank you for saving my Halcyon," maybe she had said it before but she was saying it again. She truly was thankful he had come along. "Um..." she whispers, wanting to ask him something but feeling herself socially shutting down. Black rimmed ears fall flat, she face heats up, and blue and green eyes shift to the ground, finding it comforting to look at suddenly. "Why are you alone?" she whispers, the concern and curiosity in her voice noticeable no matter how quietly she talked. Maybe it was rude, none of her business, but her kind soul had latched onto him and cared about him and so him being alone so young was very concerning. If he needed a home, a family, she was more than willing to offer him one.

female - zero - no heart - no Soul - reich x everlyse you ought to see her fly.
