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

Despite the run in we had when we were both younger, before the time of Aranck and the loss of Myrria, I tried not hold it against Exodus that he had left. Back then he had barely known me. Had offered to help me without even knowing me - even then I had been stunned by it. An offer without a requirement in return? It was unreal. There were few like that, at least, few that I had ever met. Things had changed though. If we had re-done the past then this land would be different. Aithne would still rule the marshes and there would be a lot less death. The core of me would not be quite as damaged as it was; the death of Carnifex had left me open and ripe to the desperation that had led me into the clutches of Aranck. Perhaps I had cared for him at one time. He had seemed everything I desired. Strong, ruthless, coy, but it had turned into a sort of madness and when everyday was a test against me, well, I caved and grew desperate once more.

It is because of my rough past that I was so hard on Lucia. I had never been close to my sister as a pup, the death of our mother being her fault and all, and when Malum had died, I had mourned. The loss of everything in one blow at the same time as Carnifex... there was only so much one wolf could handle. It was no wonder I had turned darker in time. The memory of that female rising over Aeon and threatening me makes my hackles itch, gums stinging with the need to deface her, to protect my child. What if something happened to Lucia? I do not think I could forgive myself or even Exodus, as much as I loved him.

I had not expected to grow so close to her after being so distant from my other children. Exodus brings me from my musings with a touch and a flippant comment about being a grandmother. I frown slightly, a furrow between my brows. "I could already be one," I murmur to myself, thinking about the pups I had for so long ignored. I remember Aranck taking Zharko. I remember Zafira crying at the entrance to my den and my patience snapping, kicking her out in the middle of winter. I don't know if they lived and that haunted me.

Yet I soften at his next comment. "Me too," I say with a soft smile. If he had stayed instead of left, things would be so different. One choice that changed the course of the whole of Molodian. But the playfully infectious mood draws me towards him, his eyes sliding across me in that way that tells me I have distracted him from my mischief.

The moment I leap, he braces, and I try to cling to him as he sinks down to protect me. Always to protect me. As he turns to lay on his side, I press my paws ito the earth as I stand over him. Truthfully though my belly and chest still touch him as he is broad and much larger than me and it is an effort for my legs to even brace on either side of his width. He bats at my face as I fake snarl and bite at them, grabbing gently and yanking like a pup. He wraps his forelegs around me, bringing his face up, and I giggle as I struggle weakly against his grip. "You are going to fix my fur, Exodus," I warn playfully as he lavishes me with his love, my eyes closing and ears folding back blissfully to allow him this.
