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

* all we see or seem

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream."

Strength is a skill I will never have but some stroke of fate and grand design. This male was huge compared to me but I liked that only because it reminded me of safety. Of Carni. And that reminds me of my loss and I am back on the same damn spiral I was before. Who is this stranger that seems to know my soul and my heart so easily? Probably some out of his luck wolf who could tell I looked like shit. I used to take such care of myself but it seemed almost a waste of time now. Why clean when I would have to clean again soon after? Why worry about eating when it would never satisfy me enough to last forever? The memory of food makes my stomach growl in a painfully loud manner, one in which draws my ears back in annoyance as I glare at the ground. I can tell he is confused by me. It seems like I was creating something disastrous here. Leaving seemed a good, familiar option. Running, but I can't. Im stuck and I am saying things to a stranger I should never have said even to myself because it hurts. Because it is true.

Because, in the end, we all die alone.

For a moment I open my jaw to apologize to him. I didn't have to be so curt, so weird, but my jaw snaps shut with just a small croak coming out as I swallow my words. I wouldn't apologize to him. Exodus the stranger. I had a right to my feelings, I think, so I will just keep on feeling them. I am thankful that he looks away from me in this moment of privacy and let out a wobbly sigh as I sit. Maybe talking will make it better. I wished Solitaire hadn't disappeared. I wished my brother was around - where was he anyways? Just someone. But I had this Exodus male and he didn't seem to mind me talking.

I think... I think he agrees with me. I think that there is sadness there and it eases mine somewhat. It might be selfish of me but I felt better knowing he was upset too. "No. I was born in Iromar but I haven't lived there in a very long time. I live in the grotto," I said, feeling like opening up was a weight lifting from me. "With my daughter," I say now, glancing up with narrowed eyes to see what he would say. It is obvious by my belly that it was a recent birth, this season, and the pup still young. "Her dad is dead." I blurt the last part out because I can't help it. In some way I have to acknowledge it out loud, that he was gone, that she was only mine now and that I was alone. "He was stupid, you know, trying to run off an get revenge for me. I didn't need revenge!" My voice is rough and angry and it grows louder as I talk, my ears pressing into my skull and my face looking half crazed. But my eyes water once more as I stare hard at Exodus, not blinking. "I didn't need it. I'm fine." I crack, blinking, and the tears they roll as I quietly grieve.
