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

Is but a dream within a dream

Lucia is of the purest sort of spirit which is often why I am conflicted. How did she come from me? I am certain she gets such conviction from Exodus, who has stuck by me through all my mood swings and ... the darker past that I harbor. Time has faded and eroded my most terrible nightmares and while I healed steadily from the birth of our child, I began to find something better in myself. It is a slow transition. Painful almost, as I go from pushing her away to seeking her innocent comfort, and I fear sometimes when I slip into one of my moods that Exodus will grow tired of my shenanigans for he so doted upon Lucia. Yet he also separated himself from that and tried to show her that it wasn't LUCIA that kept him around, it was me. It is why I grew better day by day. The odd dynamic of Myrria and my mate was at a standstill because she doted upon Lucia, or at least she protected her. I still had changed the subject of her father often, almost guilty at not telling Myrria about her past.

As I lie there, worry twisting within me, I call out to Lucia. I needed to make sure she was fine, to solidify myself. To ignore the guilt that I felt and the certainty something was wrong. My shame is what kept my secret from Exodus - how could I tell him that my imprint was a FEMALE? What did that make me? Broken.

Lucia cuddles up to me and licks my cheek and I can't help a sort of exasperated loving that fills me as I look down with a slap of my tail and a softened smile. She is almost too cute... too innocent. Yet I throw a small paw over her and pull her tight into my chest, burying my nose into her scruff before I begin to lick and groom. I pause at her conviction, my brow furrowing. "Lucia, I am not big like your daddy, and neither are you yet. You must be careful until you are big and strong." Yet I still smile at her with a sigh, "who is Aeon?"

Because if it was a BOY with intentions, well I had some intentions of my own. A guarded look shutters my eyes as I clutch her but it breaks when Exodus appears. My tail wags as he nears and I lean into his embrace, licking his cheek much like Lucia had licked mine. There is a freedom to being with Exodus. He does not expect perfection from me and he offers unconditional support. I've come to rely upon him heavily for this and as my body healed, so did my spirit. Exodus jests with Lucia and I lick the crown of her head again before withdrawing my paw to let her free, satisfied she is groomed well enough for the moment. "I'm not sure she is old enough for boy friends," I say, worry somewhat tinging my voice though hopefully Lucia will think it is in play.
