Apr 15 Pt 2

[14:52] Happy: While on watch, you hear footsteps in the grass.
[14:53] Murska: I turn towards the sound and try to see what it is.
[14:54] Happy: You see the reflection of moonlight on eyes, and a shadowy form that freezes.
[14:54] Murska: 'Who's there?'
[14:57] Happy: "Aw, you hear me," Simone says, disappointed. "I was to try and show you I am stealthy."
[14:57] Murska: 'It was a nice try.' Aegnor withdraws his hand from the handle of his axe. 'But you should do that when I'm not actually concentrating on guarding something.
[14:58] Happy: Simone grins. "But then it is not a good test."
[14:58] Murska: (Flight tickets to Japanese)
[14:58] Murska: (brb, mesmerized)
[14:58] Murska: (Japan… man I'm exhausted)
[14:59] Happy: (you're going to japan?)
[14:59] Murska: 'Well, I'm supposed to be careful all the time. The whole point of being stealthy is to be able to do something without the enemy noticing, and what worse time for trying than when the enemy is alert?'
[15:00] Happy: "If we were in city, you would not have heard me. I am quiet as shadow."
[15:01] Happy: (Link: http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/funny-dog-pictures-faverit-show.jpg)http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/funny-dog-pictures-faverit-show.jpg
[15:01] Murska: 'I believe that. Cities aren't my natural habitat. But I still doubt you could have used that for an opportunity to attack.'
[15:01] Murska: (hahaha)
[15:01] Murska: (that is SO our dog)
[15:01] Murska: (Except that he looks nothing like him)
[15:03] Wolfbane: back
[15:04] Happy: "No, I not attack. I pocketpick you," she says, with a broad grin.
[15:05] Murska: 'Luckily I don't keep almost anything important in a pocket then.' *smile*
[15:05] Happy: (Link: http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/funny-dog-pictures-spider-gone.jpg)http://ihasahotdog.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/funny-dog-pictures-spider-gone.jpg (There's my dog during the thunderstorm last night)
[15:05] Wolfbane: (hehe)
[15:06] Wolfbane: (I take it that this is happening while Cessie and the other two talk?)
[15:06] Happy: ( Yes ) She takes out her knife and tries twirling it again. She's been practicing enough to get one or two revolutions before dropping it. "You teach me to fight?"
[15:08] Murska: 'I'd rather not, since that could easily lead to you considering yourself capable of taking on something you can't. But I could teach you how to defend yourself in case you have to fight and, most importantly, how to choose your fights.'
[15:10] *** moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[15:10] Shadowcaller: Hello
[15:10] Happy: "I like that. You teach me that, and I teach you to talk."
[15:10] Happy: hiya :)
[15:10] Murska: 'Not everything's a trade.' *smile* 'But I accept this offer.'
[15:11] Shadowcaller: (Okay, you already started? o.O)
[15:12] Happy: (Murska was getting angsty and I needed to distract him.)
[15:12] Happy: (Simone is talking to Aegnor on watch, but Cessie can join him at any time)
[15:13] Wolfbane: (Dazed most likely :P)
[15:13] Murska: (I need a very complicated WW game where I'm a wolf or a mason in contact and get to scheme. )
[15:13] Shadowcaller: (I guess Kyou II is not complicated enough?)
[15:14] Murska: (if it'd start, I could form an opinion…
[15:14] Happy: (Here's a song for Cessie (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCqq48pOZM4)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCqq48pOZM4 )
[15:16] Shadowcaller: (WHen is this time wise?)
[15:16] Murska: (I wish I were able to go so high with those special-breath-thingies. Maybe I should get singing training.)
[15:16] Wolfbane: (When the other three are talking I think)
[15:17] Happy: (during first watch. Sometime during the conversation in the tent or afterwards. That's why I said Cessie could join them.)
[15:17] Murska: 'Maybe we could start the first lesson then?'
[15:17] Happy: "I learn to trade my knowings for stuff," Simone says. "So I not have to trade body like other girls."
[15:18] Murska: 'So, you want to learn how to fight?' Aegnor crouches a little and moves his hand to a dagger without her noticing. 'I'm right here. What would you do?'
[15:19] Happy: (i want voice training. I had a good voice when i was a teenager, but a few bouts of strep throat + asthma trashed it)
[15:19] Murska: (Maybe actual training would help me find like-minded people and possibly even help my self-confidence)
[15:22] Shadowcaller: (Where are you having this conversation anyway?)
[15:22] Happy: Simone holds her knife pointed in front of her, also crouching. With a fast move she lunges forward to attack. Her speed is very good, but her move is easily telegraphed and her knife grip is all wrong)
[15:22] Murska: Aegnor dodges the attack and disarms her if he can do so with no danger. 'Wrong.'
[15:23] Wolfbane: (Probably outside near the ship where Aegnor is taking watch.)
[15:23] Wolfbane: (Or attempting to)
[15:23] Murska: (I have bird sentries. :P)
[15:23] Happy: (Yes, outside)
[15:24] Murska: (never heard of that usage of the word 'telegraphed')
[15:24] Happy: Simone is easily disarmed. "Show me."
[15:25] Happy: (Link: http://roflrazzi.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/celebrity-pictures-richard-dean-anderson-the-economy.jpg)http://roflrazzi.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/celebrity-pictures-richard-dean-anderson-the-economy.jpg
[15:26] Murska: 'In this sort of a situation, the correct move is to not attack me at all. If I'm hostile, your best bet to survive is to run as fast as you can to the nearest cover and then disappear into the night. If you're the aggressor and I'm not aware of that, you have to suprise me. Poison, a knife to the throat whem I am sleeping…'
[15:26] Murska: (haha)
[15:26] Shadowcaller: (I guess Cessie is looking for Aegnor now.)
[15:26] Wolfbane: (hehe, that is great happy)
[15:26] Shadowcaller: (I think she bumped into Arik on the way here, and yes, that is great, we should have him in real life:P)
[15:28] Happy: "I know how to run. I very good at that. But if I could not run, I would have to fight you, yes?"
[15:28] Murska: 'And if, for some reason, I wouldn't accept a surrender. Remember that.'
[15:28] Happy: (no, Cessie needs to show up so I can go walk the dog without leaving Murska to be angsty again :P)
[15:29] Shadowcaller: (Cessie also know of the nobel art of running as far away as you can.)
[15:29] Shadowcaller: (Yes, I can show up any time you like, just Gm it.)
[15:29] Murska: (Well, running as far as one can and running as FAST as one can are totally different.)
[15:30] Happy: (Is Cessie looking for Aegnor?)
[15:30] Shadowcaller: (Well, in this case, running as far away as you can against something that follows you.)
[15:30] Shadowcaller: (I just said so didn't I?)
[15:31] Happy: (Is she carrying any light with her? Or fumbling through the dark?)
[15:31] Murska: (tell me if Aegnor hears her approach. :P)
[15:31] Shadowcaller: (She uses light magic.)
[15:31] Happy: Aegnor sees her before he hears her then.
[15:32] Happy: Moving away from the ship and the tents.
[15:32] Murska: Is she coming my way?
[15:32] Happy: No, she doesn't know exactly where you are.
[15:33] Murska: Well, if I notice she's looking for me I'll go to her but if she seems like she's just going to the ship, I won't.
[15:34] Happy: No, she's moving away from the ship.
[15:34] Happy: So you can probably guess she's looking for you.
[15:34] Murska: 'If you'd really have to fight me, you would be in big trouble. With most opponents, you want to keep a favourable distance. You have the speed for that. But with me, there is no distance that would favour you, except, of course, as far away as possible.'
[15:34] Happy: But you and Simone are mock fighting by moonlight, both of you being able to navigate easily in the dark.
[15:35] Happy: "Because I am so small?"
[15:36] Murska: 'No. It's my style. Long range, I have my bow. Medium, but out of reach, I can throw daggers. If you get close, I have a superior reach, armour and weaponry. I don't have a weak range.'
[15:36] Murska: Aegnor turns slightly as he notices Cessie. 'And there is an example on how not to sneak up on anyone.' He says with a little smile.
[15:36] Shadowcaller: (I think Arik is going to talk to Happy/Promise later.)
[15:37] Shadowcaller: "Thank the gods I found you, I need to talk with you *now*"
[15:37] Murska: 'What now?' (Simone lost her chance to attack.)
[15:37] Happy: Simone looks between them. "Goodnight Aegnor," she says, and quickly disappears into the darkness.
[15:38] Wolfbane: ( (Link: http://fc08.deviantart.com/fs32/i/2008/197/1/7/Too_Much_Awesome_by_GunBladeUser19.jpg)http://fc08.deviantart.com/fs32/i/2008/197/1/7/Too_Much_Awesome_by_GunBladeUser19.jpg )
[15:38] Wolfbane: (hehe)
[15:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks after SImone as she leaves them and then turn to Aegnor "Happy and Promise have… they are a pair!"
[15:39] Murska: (Chuck Norris roundhouse-kicks the paperclip!)
[15:39] Murska: '…oh?'
[15:39] Murska: Aegnor seems slightly suprised.
[15:39] Shadowcaller: SHe looks like she have seen 10 ghosts
[15:40] Shadowcaller: "This is not happening… I never thought- sure thye were close and all, but this?"
[15:40] Shadowcaller: "How do they.."
[15:41] Murska: 'What's wrong?'
[15:42] Shadowcaller: "Whats wrong? You don't understand do you? This is never going to be accepted, they are going to…"
[15:42] Murska: 'As long as they're happy…'
[15:42] Happy: (shoes being put on = dog doing the 'imma get walkies!' happy dance)
[15:43] Shadowcaller: "But they are so different. Its… wierd."
[15:43] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[15:43] Wolfbane: (heh)
[15:43] Happy: brb
[15:43] Murska: 'We're different. Why would that be a problem?'
[15:44] Shadowcaller: "I, we need to speak with them, at first I thought they were joiking or something, but its real, its all very real.."
[15:44] Shadowcaller: "You know what I mean Aegnor, when I left them alone in that tent…"
[15:45] Murska: 'Relax… I don't believe either of them would let the other do anything unwanted.'
[15:46] Wolfbane: (Whoot! Go Aegnor! :P)
[15:46] Shadowcaller: "How can I possible relax after that? Its not just that its a bit… different, they could get in trouble for this."
[15:47] Murska: 'If there were still elves living around here, we could get into trouble. You don't believe what we feel to be worth some trouble?'
[15:48] Shadowcaller: "Arik said there was elves around here… well near Kyou at least, but anyway, I told him about it too when I was looking for you."
[15:48] Shadowcaller: "He was as accepting as you are apperently, but he still think we should warn them."
[15:49] Murska: 'Of course. They're our friends, and I'll do anything I can to help them. But let's not worry them with something like that yet.'
[15:49] Murska: 'That brings to mind… I have something to ask from your goddess.'
[15:50] Shadowcaller: "What? For the last time Aegnor, she is a friend, not my godess, I'm not her priestess or something."
[15:50] Shadowcaller: "And I think this is much more urgent, I could never have imagined them…"
[15:53] Murska: 'Well she is a goddess. Your goddess friend then.' Aegnor looks directly into her eyes. 'I know we need to warn them about what'll happen, but don't you think they deserve some peace, some happiness, after all they've been through? They can worry about the possible dangers far more than they'd need to, soon enough.'
[15:54] Shadowcaller: She looks confused, she can't meet your gaze "Well… its just the wierdness of it all."
[15:54] Happy: (back)
[15:55] Murska: 'The world is very large and confusing and has enough weird things that I don't think even by living an eternity you'll familiarize yourself with all of them.'
[15:55] Shadowcaller: "If we don't speak to them, Arik will."
[15:56] Murska: 'Can't you convince him to give them even this one night, free from worry?'
[15:57] Happy: (of course, one of them is probably supposed to be taking the next watch…)
[15:57] Murska: (Aegnor can handle the whole night if necessary. :P)
[15:57] Shadowcaller: "I just convinced him to appologize for his behavor, he will be very hard to convince."
[15:58] Wolfbane: (Which one has next watch?)
[15:58] Shadowcaller: *hehavior
[15:58] Shadowcaller: *behavior
[15:59] Happy: (Wolfbane has second watch, Happy third_
[15:59] Wolfbane: (Ok)
[16:01] Murska: 'Would you have wanted someone to interrupt our night, back then in the glade? I think we should at least try to give them this gift.' Aegnor lightens up again. 'Besides, Happy still owes us a cake and I don't want her to use this to settle that one.'
[16:02] Shadowcaller: "…I don't know, we are going to need to speak with them."
[16:02] Murska: 'In the morning, is that too much to ask?'
[16:03] Shadowcaller: She sigh "Very well, if you want it that way…"
[16:03] Murska: 'Should we go intercept Arik then?'
[16:04] Shadowcaller: "Hm, well he is not going to speak with them for a while, he waits for us to do it."
[16:04] Shadowcaller: "You were talking about Helena right?"
[16:05] Murska: 'Yeah… Since we're now off the tree, I've been wondering if it were possible for me to hide at least the most noticeable parts of my features, namely my hair colour and ears, prefarably with something I can switch on or off at will.'
[16:06] Shadowcaller: "But.. thats part of you."
[16:06] Shadowcaller: "I don't want to lose that beacuse some dumb farmers look strangely upon you."
[16:07] Murska: 'I wouldn't use it all the time, but being able to go from place to place unnoticed is a very useful thing to have.'
[16:08] Shadowcaller: "I'm not going to ask her for that unless its absolutely nessecary, I won't let others force you to chance you apperance."
[16:09] Shadowcaller: "Besides, if there are as Arik claims, elves near Kyou, they can't look at you that strange."
[16:09] Shadowcaller: *is
[16:12] Murska: 'It's just a question of being practical. I haven't had time to prepare any of my usual disguises and they're inefficient, especially when I'm supposed to work with other people, such as you.' Aegnor smiles at her. 'But I do prefer having as many options available as possible, and looking like this, hiding, keeping a low profile or gathering information without being remembered just isn't possible
[16:12] Murska: (character limit = lack of ')
[16:13] Shadowcaller: "…I might speak to her later, but I can't promise anything."
[16:13] Shadowcaller: "Everyone is going to look strange there anyway, its a whole different culture."
[16:15] Murska: 'You believe I'll be able to go unnoticed, then?' *grin*
[16:16] Shadowcaller: "Well, Promise will take all the attention from you I imagine…"
[16:16] Shadowcaller: "And.. if they are going to act like a couple…"
[16:16] Murska: 'And you're suggesting I go take a walk around the city streets to gather information subtly… with Promise?'
[16:18] Shadowcaller: "No, of course not, but I'm still not going to ask her until I see a very good reason to do so."
[16:18] Shadowcaller: "Its a matter of principle."
[16:18] Murska: 'I hope you didn't choose me for my looks only?'
[16:20] Shadowcaller: "Of course not, you know me, I don't care about looks, I just don't you to change your apperance beacuse of some farmers, as I said, a matter of principles."
[16:21] Murska: 'What if there's a shopkeeper?'
[16:22] Shadowcaller: "Then I can talk to him, don't worry Aegnor, I'm sure they are accepting toward elves there…"
[16:23] Murska: 'I don't really care about what people think of me. I just want to be able to move without them remembering me.'
[16:24] Murska: 'You, of course, being an exception on both counts'
[16:24] Shadowcaller: "As I said, we will see Aegnor."
[16:26] Shadowcaller: "Maybe I need to sleep now… I'm still haveing strange images of Promise and Happy in my head."
[16:26] Shadowcaller: *having
[16:26] Murska: 'Weren't you going to sleep back when this watch started, anyway?'
[16:27] Shadowcaller: "Simone woke me up and then I went to speak with Promise and Happy…"
[16:27] Murska: 'That girl sure manages to get everywhere.'
[16:28] Shadowcaller: "She burrowed a book from me, I'm glad that she is so intrested in reading."
[16:28] Murska: 'She seems to be really smart. Gifted, even.'
[16:29] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I'm glad Arik took her along."
[16:30] Shadowcaller: "Anyway… come back to bed once your pass if finished, I think I already will be sleeping when you enter the room."
[16:30] Murska: 'I won't wake you… regrettably.'

[16:41] Happy: Promise and Happy, right on time, go to relieve Aegnor on watch.
[16:44] Murska: Aegnor's keeping watch as they approach. :P
[16:49] Happy: They're walking together. Close, but not openly showing affection.
[16:50] Murska: 'Hey, I was going to ask you for something…'
[16:53] Murska: Aegnor acts, mixing a bit of a scholar who's focusing on his studies to an impression of a wanderer wanting to stay alone and think, and removes all traces of tiredness from his expressions and posture.
[16:53] Murska: 'I really don't feel like sleeping tonight, and I haven't had any time for my own thoughts recently. Now that I've already placed the bird sentries, would you mind letting me keep the watch tonight?'
[16:56] Happy: Happy isn't fooled by his act. "What did Cessie tell you?" she asks, laughing.
[16:56] Wolfbane: Promise shakes his head and chuckles. "You are tired. I can smell it."
[16:56] Murska: (But he isn't tired. :()
[16:57] Wolfbane: (Maybe, but Promise is going to say that anyways)
[16:57] Murska: 'She was pretty startled, to say the least. But I think she understands.'
[16:58] Happy: Happy hugs Aegnor tightly.
[16:58] Murska: 'Anyway, I seem to be way out of practice…' Aegnor gets hugged. 'I'll keep tonight, and you'll still have to give us that cake some day, deal?'
[17:00] Happy: Happy stands on tiptoes and kisses Aegnor on the cheek. "Thank you."
[17:01] Murska: 'It's nothing… I should be ashamed if I've let myself go so long without practice that someone I've barely known for a month sees through my act.'
[17:01] Wolfbane: Promise chuckles. "Thank you Aegnor."
[17:02] Murska: 'I expect the cake to be worth it.' *grin* 'And I expect you two to have fun.'
[17:02] Happy: Happy blushes deeply, but the dark hides it.
[17:03] Wolfbane: Promise body language looks slightly embarrassed.
[17:03] Wolfbane: Promise's
[17:03] Wolfbane: *
[17:04] Murska: 'Now shush, I can't practice if you two keep staring at me like some dumbstruck farmers!'
[17:06] Happy: Happy takes Wolfbane's paw in hers, and gratefully turns to go.
[17:06] Murska: They hear quiet music as they leave.
