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.


Time heals alll most things...I heal the rest

The pup moved away from her - anxious, nervous, scared... and even though it was obvious that the pup was cold and hungry, the faeling did not jump at the chance for shelter and a meal. Instead, she questioned Hellene, questioned Hellene's honesty and trustworthiness. 'That sounds okay. My name's Vivi. How do I know I can trust you?' Hellene shook her head sadly. "Honey, nothing in life is sure. I cannot prove to you that you can trust me." How much this little fae reminded her of her sister - a wolf who thought everything through before making any decision. The only difference the pair of them was thus - the pup had aired her thoughts where Athene never would have. For Athene, talking was something best left to a minimum. "The only advice that I can give to you is to look inside yourself to decide how you feel about me. I will tell you that you are not the first pup I have helped - I adopted a pup who was nervous of the ways of the world, Destan, and another young fae named Khaleesi who is now a beautiful femme, and a healer - like me. If you come with me, you can share my den until you find one of your own, and I will catch meals for you. Kalgalath - the Alpha - would not force you to join, and if you do not wish for me to be your mother, I do not have to be. I wish only for you to be safe."
