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.

Tell me all your secrets

if only the world could know who I really am

This was not right. I felt my body wanting to recoil away. It was a struggle to breath. Each breath was starting to feel like I was drowning. The world focuses for a moment among the pain. I see see Aster before me now. I hear her voice- panicked, in muffled tones. She sounds so far away, but I know she is close as her muzzle touches mine. She is safe. That is all that matters is that she is safe.

I manage to lift my head slightly. I can feel my strength slowly draining away with each struggling breath. I want to say that I know what is happening, but at the same time, it becomes so confusing. There are so many sensations in my body right now, and I cannot seem to process it all. She is safe, my baby girl, and that is all that matters. I cough up more blood- not sure if it gets on her muzzle or not. She lights up for me though, and the cough allows me to speak.

"Aster, girl, I," I say weakly as I cough up more blood. My body does not move other than my head and my chest struggling to lift with each breath.

"You" I say as I recoil in a wave of pain, my eyes closing hard as I attempt to take in a deep breath that is met with blood. I cough it out...but it just keeps coming.

"We...we all...die, just...just live long, stay...stro-ng," I say, slowly with much struggle with each word. Something feels wrong, something hurts but I know that there is nothing I can do. "Aster....Aith- Aith-ne...nee...nee-" I say with bloody words, my head falling to the earth as I simply now attempt to breath. I don't get any air though. It is only blood now. I try to gasp, my tongue dangling from my mouth, but nothing. My eyes try to stay on Aster. They try to stay on that lovely face- how bright it is, but I wish she was not so scared. I am not scared...not for myself. I will be okay. I just know something is not right...My Aithne, something isn't right but I cannot muster the breath to tell Aster to go to her. I can only look at her with my blue and violet eyes, as my body no longer tries to cling to breath. I do not think that I close my eyes- as I fight to see her face- until I see it no more. I see it no more and...I think...I I? Is this... the...end or the...
