When solid ground grows soft with emerald moss and rivulets of black mud, and coffee-colored water pours slowly around the trunks of densely carpeted trees, this marks the beginning of Laod Mor: the swamp of Blossom Forest. Time itself seems to slow to a soporific crawl . . . the humid jungle air grows stagnant, thick with the scent of rich flooded earth and an abundance of green things that can be found nowhere else—except perhaps Caidir Olc. In some areas of the swamp, water rises so high the only way to cross it is to crawl across fallen logs or massive roots arching from their liquid beds; in other places a wolf might wade easily through the mire—or find a fortunate stretch of mostly dry earth. Pieces of the great river, Glaesfaet Sceawere, also slice through from time to time: small falls that feed into surprisingly clear pools, only to terminate into tar-like pits. Of course, Laod Mor’s beauty shines brightest at night. Here, fireflies gather at all times of the year . . . suffusing the shadowy place with millions of twinkling lights.

Those looking to hunt here of course find a myriad of water prey, including caiman, turtles, fish, crayfish, otters, and toads.


Trying to Forget the Past (Gwaine)


Things had been going well with the female and the male in their first meeting, other than Chenzii’s embarrassing initial greeting. But Gwaine seemed nice, and he seemed to look over the awkward state that the female had been in when she ran into their mutual friend, more literally than figuratively. The pair was making nice conversation as the raven colored femme showed the male around. Then the topic of where he would live came up. She was unsure if it would be weird for her to tell him where she had chosen to make her den, but when he asked if there any good spots she decided that she would tell him. If he didn’t like where she lived there were plenty of other places he would be able to make his living space. They stopped at a more populated area at first. Chenzii still did not know what type of wolf he was, how social or secluded he may be and maybe he would prefer an area with more vargs living nearby. After he took a minute to look around with his handsome brown orbs, he came to the same conclusion that she had before. “Like you said, it is rather busy…” The fae nodded her head in agreement, but she had wanted to give him the option.

And so the pair had traveled to where Chenzii lived. Gwaine seemed to fumble with his words a bit, and she was worried that showing him an area close to her den may have made him uncomfortable, even though she was just trying to share a nice area of Aurora to live. “Well…I mean…” he coughed before continuing and Chenzii’s yellow orbs looked to him with embarrassment for a moment before looking away, unsure if he caught what she was feeling or not. But then he smiled as he continued and she felt better again, “I think I would like to live here. As long as you’re sure I’m not intruding on you.” The femme returned the smile, realizing how infectious his was on her. ”Not at all. It hasn’t become a busy place in the years I’ve been here so I don’t anticipate it getting crowded at all.” Once Gwaine had picked the spot he liked, the pair separated so that the male could get more acquainted with his new home. She left him with a few parting words though before she went back the way they came into the trees, ”If you ever need anything, you know where to find me.” She smiled once more as her black coat blended in with the shadows and she left the male alone.


Chenzii awoke in her den, the air all around her warm from her body heat and the moss that she had lined her den with. Even though her pelt was thick and made for winter, it was still cold at night when the sun disappeared. Chenzii had always enjoyed the night, and right now she wanted to stay in the warmth for a while. But she knew that she could not stay within in her den all day and that she would have to go out and stretch her limbs. With a yawn she pushed into the cold air, shivering for a moment as she adjusted from her warmer den. Paws crunched in the newly fallen snow, and it didn’t look like anything had disturbed the area near her yet. She stretched forward to awaken her muscles for movement, letting out one more yawn before going through the trees to where the sun reached the ground more. Even though the femme blended into the shadows and darkness much better than the white snow, she enjoyed walking in the sunlight where she stuck out like a sore thumb. The femme did a quick border check, making sure that everything in the pack was well before she decided to go out of Aurora’s lands for the day. She did not often leave the pack lands, but sometimes the day just called for it.

As she went to more populated areas, the snow was more packed down and the scents of many vargs reached her nares. Chenzii was not in the mood to be near a crowd, but she also wasn’t in the mood to be entirely alone. She knew the hunting lands and lake were always busy, so she decided somewhere a little more secluded, but not as secluded as some areas like the caves, would be a good place to go. With a goal in mind now the femme picked up her pace, trotting easily through the trees and snow. Her plume hung lazily behind her as she enjoyed the feeling of a run. Her paws carried her to Staircase Falls, and she stopped for a moment to break at some of the ice that had formed at the edges of the river. The river was only frozen at the edges and it was not thick as it sometimes got, so her paws were able to easily crack it so she could get to the flowing water underneath. Her tongue lapped at it, cooling her throat with the ice cold water. Chenzii stood up, yellow orbs peering around to see if anyone else happened to choose to come here today.

"We were never meant to last," She whispers.
