around the world [BBD Plot]
« on: July 08, 2012, 04:57:26 PM »
[Please let Backbite and Kieran post first. I imagine they all kind of...know that they live in the same little piece of land, just that they don't really socialise much?]

It had been a while since Warsong had left the desert.

The huge blackblood left pretty much straight after the challenge was over, he was surprised that Sunrush had lost, but by law, Eve was officially the new alpha of the Oasis. And so, he parted ways with it, deciding to follow his own path. Backbite, one of his guardians, tagged along, and honestly Warsong was rather glad for the company.

It wasn't nice wandering around on your own.

They decided to stay in a little forest for the time being, the place stinking of blackblood. The male had no clue that this place had once held enemies to Inaria, or that this was even meant to be part of Inaria. He was in for a bit of a shock, to say the least. There was another blackblood with them, someone he didn't really socialise with much, he just kind of acknowledged him as hanging around the area.

He settled down beside a tree trunk with a fresh kill, a rabbit that he had hunted. Even if it was strange not being in the Oasis, the prey out here was a really nice change. Noisily, he began eating, tearing chunks from the rabbit and gulping them down.

A scent caught his attention though, and he lifted his head, staring into the shadows.

Something was wrong.

 The past was behind them at last. The Oasis, the heat and the burning sands, just a memory. Stolon - nothing now, a ghost. The white brother was successful in making himself distant from Backbite. Eris and Anther, somewhat missed. But he knew they'd never join him so trying and getting into more drama was useless. He said his goodbyes to them long ago.

 He never shed his blackblood name, choosing to remember it just in case. He left the life of Rhizome behind him, the minute his paws crossed the border he left the family, the Guardianship, the birthplace. He didn't regret a thing. Perhaps Snapdragon would rejoice now, realizing she'd have one less disappointment to see in the Oasis.

 "This place is already better," he mused to himself, eyes scanning the forest they'd chosen to stop in. Though it smelled of other blackbloods something was off, Backbite choosing to ignore this as he looked around. Stomach rumbling he waited for something to make itself known - pouncing and killing a large hare as it showed up - before relaxing.

 Carrying it in his jaws the male stopped somewhere close to Warsong and began tearing into the meal. Lips licked by a bloody tongue, stomach silencing as the pieces of meat hit. This was way better than crispy lizard. When Warsong lifted his head the male looked up, a chunk of meat still in his mouth. Swallowing bitterly he rolled his eyes.

 "Damn, what now?" he asked with annoyance in his voice.
He's a stranger to some
And a vision to none.
He can never get enough,
get enough of the one.

For a fortune he'd quit,
but it's hard to admit
how it ends and begins.

On his face is a map of the world,
a map of the world.
On his face is a map of the world,
a map of the world.

[I take it since you’re not waiting on Kieran, I can post now? If not, lemme know.]

Oh yes, something was definitely wrong. Without the limp she had come back to Inaria with, and several of the scars scabbed over, Flash continued on her usual rounds. But the wild, crazed look in her eyes wasn’t gone. Her black and gray-striped fur was matted in a few places, gunk from the marshes still sticking to her legs. She was still one of the Elite guards, and was going to have it stay that way. No way will she let any little piss poor wolves try to take her place.

She wasn’t down for good – she was still standing strong – being ambushed in the marshes wouldn’t stop her there. Haven was, at the moment, not with the pack. And Haylyn was taking control. Still pissed the Elite off – having a little pansy princess believe she had what it took to be a queen. But no, Inaria was not returning to its state. Cut off the head, and the body will flounder; is that how the saying goes? Welp, Inaria was still floundering, whether or not Flash liked to admit it. But to her, if she did her job safely and promoted stable borders, then she felt that was one step closer to helping Inaria regain its head.

It was another one of her usual, beyond familiar rounds in one location of the pack when the overwhelmed stench hit her, and hit her hard. Those wild violet eyes snapped open and lips pulled up in a disgusting fit of drool and wrinkles to reveal teeth faintly yellowed. Ripping up a few chunks of grass and dirt, she charged forward, out of the shadows to a small area where three wolves – no, three Blackbloods were sitting, munching on Inarian prey, and just sitting there. If it wasn’t just by their stench, Flashsnap could also tell with the brown one’s height, and those tattoos. Oh, dear familiar tattoos – she remembered those. She remembered the time when Blackbloods were used as the Elite Guard here in Inaria.

“Well, look what we have here; a few Blackbloods,” Flashsnap snarled, hackles raising and head low in a defensive stance. These Blackbloods were intruding – they could have heard about the Queen’s kidnapping – they could be in on her kidnapping, or they could just want to overthrow Inaria as their own. Why are you here?!” Much better than charging in and attacking herself a few Blackbloods. But might as well as be civil…

Well, as civil as one could be with a bunch of inbred murderers.

It was a soldier’s duty to protect the land, and that was exactly what she planned to do. Very little of it had to do with the fact that she actually really had nothing else to do but wait for a war that she knew would be coming. It seemed she had managed to return just in time too. The soldier wandered over the ground, reminded all too clearly that this place was where those creatures had hid. The plague, it was a nightmare that she remembered all too clearly. Even thinking of it could have brought a snarl forth. But it that didn’t do it then what she heard certainly did.

“Well, look what we have here; a few Blackbloods. Why are you here?!”

Blackbloods?

Towanda knew the rules, knew them like any other, and any blackblood was a traitor. Were they stupid enough to step foot onto Inarian soil? Obviously so. This time the snarl did errupt as the female walked forward.

Just her luck, a pair of filthy males as well. That was already two strikes against them. Some had managed to earn her respect but she wasn’t exactly willing to give many a second chance. The list of males that were more evil than good seemed to grow. Her father, Fifteen, that bastard that kept her from her home... it grew. So few were ever decent and she had no reason to doubt her beliefs, now all the males she had trusted were gone. Ephraim, Shen, Katene...

“What ya say we even these odds?”

She came up behind Flashsnap, never minding the fact that she was actually the smallest of the wolves there, much thanks to her dog heritage. Well that sure as eff hadn’t stopped her before and it wouldn’t now.

The green eyes flashed forward, almost daring the blackbloods to try it. She hadn’t had a good fight in a while a breaking laws like this... they were just asking for it. For this moment it felt just like the old days, even if it was Flashsnap at her side now and not one of the others she had once known so well. 

Oh yes, just take those steps forward and make her day.

She hadn't expected something like this to happen, not so soon. Blackbloods so often knew better than to go near Inaria, it was a place known for its hatred to them. With that in mind who would really wander right on up to the place that was more likely to rip them up than anything? They were either very brave, or very stupid. She wasn't sure which it was, but as she saw them there placid as her friends issued threats something in her stomach twisted. They thought the others monsters, and yet they were the ones behaving like animals. Sort of ironic, don't you think?

Ignoring the other two she brushed past Flash and Towanda, a flick of her tail. Assuming Warsong was now standing (few would remain laying in the face of two seeming threats) she'd stop before him, looking up at the wolf who was near twice her size. Her expression for now blank as she cocked her head, silent for a beat longer. Considering always the possibilities outside of the box, and right now that's exactly what Inaria needed. They'd been stuck in the old ways for two long and it was about time she spiced it up a bit, perhaps this would be the only way to save everyone.

Even if they hated her for it.

"You're a Blackblood." The word was simple and without the malice Flash put into it. She looked briefly at the other one, shorter than his friend but the tattoos were still there. She knew what they meant. It left little doubt that the smaller was exactly what he seemed. "And this is Inaria." She was sure they knew that by now. The other two were likely to have rubbed that fact in very quickly. She wondered if either had taken the time to ask their names? Wasn't that the decent thing to do? Ah, not the point. "And I am it's Queen." One of them. "Haylyn." And then she smiled, a soft laugh as she shook her head.

"I don't think you're threats~" She could lose her head for it, but this was the truth as she saw it. One of them had clearly been in the middle of eating, and someone who wanted to launch an invasion didn't stop for a snack on the way. Perhaps they were here to trick their way in, the idea occurred. Then again it would be so much easier to simply find any other breed of canine. Ones Inaria wouldn't try and kill on sight. This, she thought, wasn't a trick. It was a simple mistake. "And please explain yourselves." They were so lucky it was she who was here. One of the few not so bias against them.

"Stand down." No need to spill blood today, Inaria had seen enough of it.

"Damn, what now?"

Warsong remained silent, emerald eyes glaring at the two figures who approached. A dark grey female came first, violet eyes filled with anger, barking demands for an explanation. She was soon followed by a smaller blue female, but the large brown male looked over to Backbite, giving him an order.

"Stand down." Backbite had a fiery temper, and Warsong expected him to rise up to the bait, but he was not in the mood for a fight today. He stood, slowly and carefully, and looked back to the two females. "We mean no harm." And he'd just stand there, not making a move, not growling like the two females maybe wanted him to do.

The third arrival though, certainly changed things.

"You're a Blackblood. And this is Inaria. And I am it's Queen. Haylyn. I don't think you're threats~ And please explain yourselves."

As she told the other two to stand down, he'd look over to Backbite, the look on his face obviously saying 'well crap didn't see that one coming'. How the hell did they wander into Inaria and not even realise? Why did Inaria, the one pack who hated their kind, smell like blackbloods had been living here for a long time? He'd look back down to the Queen, trying to explain this misunderstanding.

"My name is Warsong, and this is Backbite. We were unaware that this was Inarian land, it smelt like blackbloods had been living in this area for a while, and thats why we decided to stay here." Until they had decided on their next move, whether they were going to find a new pack to call home or not. "I apologise, Queen Haylyn, we did not mean to intrude, and we will leave without causing anymore trouble if you wish." Shame though, this place was pretty nice.

If she allowed him to continue though:

"We come from the Oasis. Born and raised there, under Swiftkill's rule and then Sunrush's rule. I was Delta, and Master Guardian, and Backbite was one of my Guardians. But the Oasis has had...a change in leadership. Sunrush was challenged by a wolf named Eve, they fought it out, and Sunrush...lost. In respect for the new Alpha, Sunrush left without anymore trouble. A lot of wolves decided to leave, including us two."

And that was that, the Inarian's wanted an explanation, and they got one. Though he was unaware of what was perhaps going through the Queen's mind now, two different versions of the same story. But Warsong kept his green gaze on her, watching her closely.

Would they believe his story?

Objectively the Marquis knew that the Renegades were gone and the borders were free of marauding Blackbloods, just like he knew that invaders no longer skulked outside of Inaria.  That didn't stop him from patrolling like clockwork.  He checked and double-checked Inaria's figurative walls for any signs of impending threat to the kingdom.  Once in a while the white dire paused, scented the air here, tasted it there, and continued onward.

He only stopped in place once this day.  At first it was a simple halt -- but then Jaromir stiffened and bolted forward as if to the crack of a starting gun, racing headlong for the Outskirts.

BLACKBLOODS.

He stormed into the scene, all blazing ire and soundless rage, throwing himself in front of Haylyn in three swift bounds.  No energy was spared on snarls, no time wasted on preamble.  This! This was the fury of a defender who had missed his king's slaughter, who had been raised on a diet of propaganda and true stories.  Blackbloods were berserkers.  Blackbloods were guards with an inherent flaw.  A disease.  Their kind were rabies, time-bombs, poison in thawing ice! It had been years since any Blackbloods at their borders had meant anything but kidnapping and regicide!

The beta would lunge forward into Warsong's personal space, muzzle to muzzle, and whether he was finished talking or not would attempt to solidly grab Warsong's muzzle and push him bodily away from the queen.  It was good that Flashsnap and Towanda were there (double-take later; was he seeing a ghost?) but there'd be time for niceties and approvals after the alarm.

"Flank her--!" the only energy spared for a grunt of exertion and command to the two guarding Inarians, who might be able to protectively encircle Haylyn.

If unsuccessful in manhandling Warsong to place more space between him and the graduated duchess, Jaromir would outright attack -- lunging forward, around, whichever way necessary, to slam his jaws shut on the other animal's face.  If successful, that would end with his jaws slamming shut on the other's face, a canine tooth popping one of those lime-colored eyes into so much ruptured jelly while bottom teeth scraped lacerations on the Blackblood's jaw.

If successful, however, he would instead stand squarely and dominantly as a shield between the royal and the (likely) invader, fur on end and every ounce of hackle and lip raised in terrible aggression.  Whether he'd heard Haylyn's request was unknown, and even if he had, perhaps the monarchy needed to be protected from itself.

"Leave here.  Now."

Their words mostly noises,

(Got the okay from Mutter to post before her. :> )

“What ya say we even these odds?” A smile would begin to tug at the edges of her lips at the approaching soldier, but Flash wouldn’t leave, wouldn’t have her violet eyes stray from the two Blackbloods. There was just a flick of gray-striped tail to welcome the soldier at her side. Two against two was better, even if they were smaller than those abominations, but who said height meant anything in a fight? It actually only made it more interesting. However, what wasn’t interesting, and what happens more than often enough, was the little miss queen waltzing up.

"We mean no harm." Like Flash would believe a word out of his mouth. Blackbloods throughout history were nothing but cheating, lying, and murdering abominations. Yes, they were created by Inarians, but Inarians would see it through that they are eradicated. Flashsnap had heard when she was just a pup of what happened to Whitewind’s children, saw the damage a Blackblood did on Elias, and heard of Haven’s kidnapping. Blackbloods were not to be trusted. They were trespassing. They should be killed right here, and right now.

Pushed past the soldier and elite as if they didn’t even exist, and Flash narrows her eyes at her movements, that flick of her tail, some little twist of her lips, maybe a bit of a snarl. Purple orbs would look out of the corner of her eyes, before flicking forward back to the royal. The Elite would step forward, to the royal’s side, dangerous and narrowed eyes on the blackbloods. Haylyn may think that Flashsnap was a bitch, liked to snip, liked to argue, but she tried to always be there to protect royals. If she could have been there, she would have died to protect Elias. She was going to protect Haylyn whether the spoiled brat liked it or not. "You're a Blackblood. And this is Inaria." No crap. "And I am it's Queen." Uh, what - what. "Haylyn." What was she doing? She was signing a clear sign saying ‘OH LOOK – I’m the Queen. Come kill me.’

"I don't think you're threats~" Double take – ohoh, this was just getting better and better. Not threats? This little pansy was definitely not right for what she wanted and for what she preached. "And please explain yourselves." Flashsnap wanted to roll her eyes. They could just flat out lie. Blackbloods always do. "Stand down." Heh. Only likely for now…

"My name is Warsong, and this is Backbite. We were unaware that this was Inarian land, it smelt like blackbloods had been living in this area for a while, and thats why we decided to stay here. I apologise, Queen Haylyn, we did not mean to intrude, and we will leave without causing anymore trouble if you wish." The Elite rolled her eyes sub-consciously, asking herself if they really believed them to be this stupid. And if Haylyn allowed the brown and red Blackblood to continue, "We come from the Oasis. Born and raised there, under Swiftkill's rule and then Sunrush's rule. I was Delta, and Master Guardian, and Backbite was one of my Guardians. But the Oasis has had...a change in leadership. Sunrush was challenged by a wolf named Eve, they fought it out, and Sunrush...lost. In respect for the new Alpha, Sunrush left without any more trouble. A lot of wolves decided to leave, including us two."

Wonderful story. Did they rehearse it before they trespassed? And, what was the oasis? Flashsnap knew of the Outlands, had heard about it from gossip and stories – where the blackbloods had found a new home. That was where Blaise found them when Inaria was under attack from the sabres. Where Blaise brought them the news of Elias. She knew what it was, but not the oasis he spoke of.

And then a flash of white, and the Marquis shoots forward, aims a full on assault at the brown and red blackblood. Flash looks at his companion, and if his companion decides to jump forward, try to ‘protect’ his friend, Flash would intercept – jump in front of him and block him off from Jaromir and Warsong. Hopefully Towanda could round the royal if this turned nasty. Flashsnap would only get in front of Backbite if he had the body posture – the look – that he’d jump forward to protect the other tattooed beast. And she’d growl in warning. Do not get in the way.

"Leave here.  Now." Couldn’t have been better said.

 An angry, barking grey female came first, answering his previous question. She said a few words and ended with a snarl on their breed, only causing his eyes to narrow. He would have stood up if it wasn't for Warsong's quick warning - "Stand down." - that he grudgingly obeyed. All the same he sat up straight and stared as another wolf came up.

“What ya say we even these odds?”
"We mean no harm."


 With a grunt of approval he sized up both of the dires and let his eyes return to a normal size before adding, "No harm, that kind of means stand the eff down." In response to the purple eyed wolf pushing past her fellow soldier as yet another wolf came up.

"You're a Blackblood. And this is Inaria. And I am it's Queen. Haylyn. I don't think you're threats~ And please explain yourselves."

 Ears perked and turned back, a bit of surprise on his face as he and Warsong exchanged looks. Well this was not awkward at all, no sir. Inaria ... damn, when we mess up we do it right. Still not believing it, but having to go on the idea that they were in some seriously deep trouble, he looked back to the Queen with a skeptical eye. "We didn't mean to intrude," added in quickly before Warsong jutted in with his explanation.

"My name is Warsong, and this is Backbite. We were unaware that this was Inarian land, it smelt like blackbloods had been living in this area for a while, and thats why we decided to stay here. I apologise, Queen Haylyn, we did not mean to intrude, and we will leave without causing anymore trouble if you wish. We come from the Oasis. Born and raised there, under Swiftkill's rule and then Sunrush's rule. I was Delta, and Master Guardian, and Backbite was one of my Guardians. But the Oasis has had...a change in leadership. Sunrush was challenged by a wolf named Eve, they fought it out, and Sunrush...lost. In respect for the new Alpha, Sunrush left without any more trouble. A lot of wolves decided to leave, including us two."

 But then before an answer was made on the Queen's behalf a pale wolf shot out at Warsong and attempted for his face, leaping into fight mode the blackblood snarled as the purple eyed female blocked him from helping. At her growl another one of his own was given and he launched in with open jaws, attempting to bite at whatever part of her neck/cheek area he could get. Not intending for such an obvious place like the jugular, no .. he didn't want to kill. So long as he's okay, a quick look to Warsong. Backbite only wanted to hold her, perhaps tug at her cheek to make her fur tear a bit.

 A warning of his own.

"Leave here.  Now."

 "Unless you outrank your Queen here, I'd rather have her decide." He spat, no matter if he was doing so behind clumps of fur or still from behind Flashsnap. But still ...
He's a stranger to some
And a vision to none.
He can never get enough,
get enough of the one.

For a fortune he'd quit,
but it's hard to admit
how it ends and begins.

On his face is a map of the world,
a map of the world.
On his face is a map of the world,

"Stand down. We mean no harm."

Harm or not, they were blackbloods in Inaria. That was a death sentence, pure and simple. She had killed some herself for just stepping foot onto this land. This was the way the laws were. This was the way they were meant to be.

"No harm, that kind of means stand the eff down."

Towanda’s ears perked as she heard the sound of footsteps and took in the scent of their new Queen. What was she doing there?

Haylyn had walked past them, brushing past both herself and Flashsnap. It took Towanda by surprise, and while she had not grown up with the tales she knew the stories. Pure and simple, Blackbloods were forbidden. There was only one punishment fitting for them.

Death.

That was the way it always was and Towanda upheld those laws without question, but now Haylyn was coming forward into dangerous ground. She was the Queen, she shouldn’t do that. Towanda lifted one paw to once again dodge in front of her.

"You're a Blackblood. And this is Inaria. And I am it's Queen. Haylyn."

Was she actually ignoring that glaring law? Towanda was bewildered to be certain. She shouldn’t even be here out where the renegades had once called home. They had lost enough rulers in just a matter of a few years.

"I don't think you're threats~ And please explain yourselves. Stand down."

She couldn’t be serious! Towanda’s hackles didn’t fall, they wouldn’t, not with everything that had happened. To let these Blackbloods go, ignoring the laws that had been in place for so long. During Ephraim’s reign she had upheld it without question. Yes perhaps they weren’t evil but it didn’t matter. Their crime deserved death.

Inwardly her mind raged at even the idea of this.

"We didn't mean to intrude.”

It didn’t mean a damn thing what they meant or didn’t mean. They had broken the damn laws and there was only one punishment for that, the same that there had been during Ephraim’s reign.

"My name is Warsong, and this is Backbite. We were unaware that this was Inarian land, it smelt like blackbloods had been living in this area for a while, and thats why we decided to stay here." Until they had decided on their next move, whether they were going to find a new pack to call home or not. "I apologise, Queen Haylyn, we did not mean to intrude, and we will leave without causing anymore trouble if you wish. We come from the Oasis. Born and raised there, under Swiftkill's rule and then Sunrush's rule. I was Delta, and Master Guardian, and Backbite was one of my Guardians. But the Oasis has had...a change in leadership. Sunrush was challenged by a wolf named Eve, they fought it out, and Sunrush...lost. In respect for the new Alpha, Sunrush left without anymore trouble. A lot of wolves decided to leave, including us two."

What the eff was up with those names? Warsong, Backbite, Swiftkill, Sunrush... about the only sane sounding one was Eve. Really, who came up with those names? She could focus on that later though. The only reason Towanda didn’t move was the command to stand down but everything in her rebelled against it. She wanted to uphold the laws, to attack these creatures.

Their Queen was at risk.

"Flank her--!"

The yell echoed and Towanda leapt forward to take one side of Haylyn. She put herself between her and the fight and a snarl escaped. Finally someone who made some sense. Someone who would uphold the laws and not suddenly change them. The fight began and as Flashsnap moved forward Towanda rounded before Haylyn, her body before the Queen’s.

"Leave here.  Now."

If they refused to leave Towanda would try to round Haylyn away from them and deeper into the packlands. She would need to be secured away from them before she could return to the fight. She would be there and make sure nothing would happen.

 "Unless you outrank your Queen here, I'd rather have her decide."

Towanda was really starting to wish that this male would just eff off. Just like so many others he was filth. They were all filth unless proven otherwise. “We should leave this to them, your highness.”

We come from the Oasis. Born and raised there, under Swiftkill's rule and then Sunrush's rule. I was Delta, and Master Guardian, and Backbite was one of my Guardians. But the Oasis has had...a change in leadership. Sunrush was challenged by a wolf named Eve, they fought it out, and Sunrush...lost. In respect for the new Alpha, Sunrush left without anymore trouble. A lot of wolves decided to leave, including us two."

She listened and waited, a flash of anger because she knew very quickly that a certain someone else had lied to her. It was washed away in a sea of serenity though, irrelevant to this situation. Before something came hard and solid against her, barking orders at the blackbloods. She allowed his words to ring, allowed the others to swarm if they chose, choosing herself not to undermine him so utterly where there was no need. He was doing his job, and even if she didn't agree she didn't begrudge him it. Instead she wedged her slight frame between herself and the two titans. Warsong and Jaromir. A place most would not choose to be, and yet she stood their primly and thrust her muzzle up to act as a barrier between the faces of the others.

"Now stop this." This wasn't a request. Not even as she ignored Towanda trying to hush her. She paid them no mind and instead kept herself in place. She would not move, and should would not be silenced. If she had to bite Jaromir on the face to make him listen perhaps she would, but not for now, instead she fixed a sidelong glance at him.

A heavy sigh as she tried to nudge the white one's muzzle back, gentle and almost apprehensive as if dealing with a spooked animal. Or rather a piss one. "We are not so barbaric as to hurt others and shun them based on breed alone. It is my blood they have killed, not yours. You have no right. I absolve them for that which they have never even done, and I also apologise. I apologise that so many were hurt for the actions of one, because that is cruel and wrong. We are not going to become the so called monsters we claim to hate, so all of you will stop." She'd stand then, shouldering at Jaromir if he still refused to move. The others were probably aghast, and rightly so. Once she may have felt the same.... but she couldn't. They'd killed her older siblings. Her brother. She was alone because of one of their kind, but... that wasn't their fault. She didn't hate them; simply some of them.

She was nothing if not fair.

"Inaria is fair. Fair to all. Do not presume to act for me in this, do not push them away so quickly when that is not what is right." If any questioned she would ignore, instead looking back to the great beasts. "I believe you. Another has already confirmed what you've said." Even if she'd altered details to suit her. There would be hell to pay for Cappella later, not today though. Today there was an idea, one that was so effing obvious. Her family had always used the blackbloods, and whilst she didn't condone the use of others as tools if they agreed that was different. Inaria needed help. These were that help. They could save everything... or conversely ruin it all.

She would not accept the latter though, instead she made what was perhaps a groundbreaking idea. One the others were no doubt going to hate. "I will offer you a home and sanctuary. I will accept your kind for the first time in many years. In return you will do something for me. Something you may not... like. If, later, when all is said and done you do not agree you may leave. You can leave now. None will stop you." If they did there would be repercussions. Severe ones. She was kind and good, but she wasn't foolish. Not really; just inexperienced.

"If you stay," she continued "not all will welcome you. Some will hate you. Some will not. Either way I will take you as my personal guards. A show of faith. My life will be in your paws... and my family has not had the best of luck when it comes to surviving so long." A shrug and she regarded them. "The choice is yours, my dears. You may call this home or you may leave, though I would like you to decide quickly." Offers like this were rare.

(frooooost?)

My old man is a bad man but
I can't deny the way he holds my hand
And he grabs me, he has me by my heart
He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past
He doesn't mind I have an LA crass way about me
He loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart

Swimming pool glimmering darling
White bikini off with my red nail polish
Watch me in the swimming pool
Bright blue ripples, you sittin', sippin' on your black Cristal
Oh yeah

Can we skip Frost, say Warsong did nothing and continue the rp? It's been almost two months and the kids are already born.

Yeah. If people miss their posts like this again I'm going to asspull repercussions because that's sort of not acceptable.
