Kyou 49

[19:50] Shadowcaller: The village then?
[19:51] Murska: hm. Simone and Cessie were both awake and talking?
[19:51] Shadowcaller: How tired is Cessie feeling right now?
[19:54] Murska: Weak, and somewhat tired. She tires quickly if she tries to do anything.
[19:54] Shadowcaller: Well, she don't speak very much then, unless Simone asks her something
[19:55] Happy: "Do you needing anything?"
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "No… I don't think so, I'm fine Simone… really."She smiles weakly, trying to look better then she really is
[20:00] Happy: Simone helps her lay back down and continues to watch over her.
[20:02] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes again
[20:02] Murska: (What about the herbalists?)
[20:02] Happy: (I said they'd arrive when Aegnor did)
[20:03] Murska: (Even if he sent them first and then went to talk to Arik?)
[20:03] Happy: (But I'd have to roleplay with myself)
[20:04] Happy: (Let's say they were out in the woods gathering herbs)
[20:04] Shadowcaller: (Like I did eh?)
[20:04] Happy: (took them a few minutes for someone to send for them)
[20:05] Murska: Anyway, Aegnor arrives first then. He knocks.
[20:06] Happy: "Come in," Simone says.
[20:08] Murska: He enters. (The spell doesn't block that, right?)
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (Well, he would not hear Simone, but she would hear him.)
[20:09] Happy: Then I guess Simone has to go to the door?
[20:09] Murska: (Then he just waits a moment after knocking and enters)
[20:15] Murska: He looks around. 'The healers aren't here yet?'
[20:15] Happy: "Not yet. But she wake up."
[20:15] Murska: (SC should RP Arik arriving pretty much very soon)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: (he is right behind ya.)
[20:15] Shadowcaller: "So… how is she?"
[20:16] Shadowcaller: "Can I see her?"
[20:17] Shadowcaller: Arik is standing in the doorway, just so you know
[20:17] Murska: Aegnor steps to Cessie. 'How are you feeling?'
[20:18] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Aegnor?… I don't know really. I feel quite tired at the moment."
[20:18] Shadowcaller: "I just want to sleep…"
[20:19] Happy: Arik probably hears the herbalists approaching: an elderly elf and his young wolfen apprentice.
[20:19] Shadowcaller: He steps into the hut, avoiding them
[20:20] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Cessie… how are you feeling? Do you think you will need a boost?"
[20:20] Murska: 'Try and stay awake for a moment. The healers are here.'
[20:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "No… just sleep, you don't need to help me Arik, I will be fine…"
[20:21] Shadowcaller: Arik: "What exactly are these healers going to do?"
[20:21] Shadowcaller: (he asks Aegnor.)
[20:23] Murska: 'They know the plants and herbs of the area, and how to treat illnesses, especially ones that are locally common.'
[20:25] Shadowcaller: "Well, is this one common? She have been introduced to a new area without any resistanse to whatever strange diseases they have here. These people might be immune to what she have."
[20:25] Happy: The herbalists are waiting to be invited in.
[20:26] Murska: 'The illnesses such as these, people never manage to gain immunity to them.'
[20:26] Murska: (The door is open)
[20:26] Shadowcaller: (If there ever was a door that is
[20:27] Shadowcaller: (the non-existance door is open!)
[20:27] Murska: (Saying 'the whatever-you-call-the-thing-you-put-into-the-doorway-to-stop-people-from-walking/looking-in is open' is too long)
[20:27] Murska: So, they get motioned in as soon as they're noticed, of course
[20:28] Happy: "When did she fall ill?"
[20:28] Shadowcaller: "So, you know things about medicine then? I thought elves were immune to them.."
[20:29] Shadowcaller: "Ask Aegnor, I'm only here if something goes wrong."
[20:29] Happy: (He was asking Aegnor :P)
[20:29] Murska: 'I've lived amongst humans for long enough.' He turns to the healer. 'She was weak this morning.'
[20:29] Happy: (Elves are immune to illness?)
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (some illnesses.)
[20:30] Murska: (Resistant, maybe)
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (Yeah.)
[20:30] Shadowcaller: (Which means they would have less developed medecine actually^^)
[20:31] Murska: (Aegnor wouldn't really know that well. He remembers that his family wasn't sick that often and he himself hasn't been sick more than once or twice during his life.)
[20:33] Happy: He asks about her symptoms, and then sits on the floor to examine her.
[20:34] Shadowcaller: *medicine
[20:34] Shadowcaller: She is half-sleeping
[20:35] Murska: He finds out that it's a disease that's common around here, especially in children and the elderly, but much stronger than usual. Pretty much a flu, in real world terms, although I reserve the right to modify it since it's a fictional illness. :P
[20:36] Shadowcaller: "Stronger then usual?"
[20:36] Shadowcaller: (Arik)
[20:37] Happy: "It looks like the Sweating Sickness," the herbalist says. "Though this is a strong case."
[20:37] Murska: (Arik said that after the healer, I'd assume. :P)
[20:37] Shadowcaller: (Yes,)
[20:39] Happy: "I can make some draughts that will ease her symptoms. But I will not mislead you. This is a dangerous illness."
[20:40] Murska: Aegnor looks even more worried. 'Anything we can do?'
[20:40] Shadowcaller: "How dangerous are we talking about.. what is your name anyway?"
[20:43] Happy: "My name is Fedel. And people can die of the Sweating Sickness."
[20:43] Shadowcaller: "Not on my watch they can't…"
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "So, you can't actually guarantee her safety then?"
[20:45] Happy: "I cannot guarantee anyone's safety."
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "JUst medicine would only improve the chances of her survival?"
[20:47] Happy: "That is all any herbalist can do."
[20:48] Happy: "We'll need to keep her warm, rested, and make sure she drinks plenty of fluids. The rest is up to her own strength."
[20:48] Shadowcaller: "You are saying i should leave this to chance?"
[20:48] Shadowcaller: "I don't think so."
[20:49] Happy: Fedel looks uneasy. "I am not a miracle worker, nor do I tell people what they wish to hear."
[20:50] Shadowcaller: "I will return shortly, I have to fix this.. misstake."
[20:50] Shadowcaller: Arik steps outside
[20:50] Murska: Aegnor doesn't really listen to this very attentively, he's instead sitting next to Cessie and looking at her.
[20:50] Shadowcaller: And is soon out of sight
[20:51] Shadowcaller: Her breathing is regular, it appears she have fallen asleep at some point during the conversation
[20:51] Murska: Aegnor turns his head at the herbalist again. 'Do all you can.'
[20:53] Happy: The herbalist sends his assistant off to gather more blankets and firewood, and begins preparing some herbal remedies.
[20:59] Happy: He tries to wake Cessie enough to get her to drink an infusion.
[21:00] Shadowcaller: She wakes up, "What? Aegnor is that you?"
[21:00] Murska: He's right next to her. 'I'm right here.'
[21:01] Shadowcaller: "The child… where is she?"
[21:01] Happy: "I need you to drink this," the herbalist says.
[21:01] Happy: "I not a child," Simone says crossly.
[21:01] Murska: 'Please drink it.'
[21:02] Shadowcaller: Cessie drinks the infusion
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "I can't see her… where is she Aegnor?"
[21:03] Shadowcaller: Her voice is slowly drifting off, as if she is falling asleep again
[21:04] Murska: Aegnor will hum the tune he uses to get her to sleep, without any magic though. 'Sleep…'
[21:05] Shadowcaller: He don't really need to say that again as she most likely would have fallen asleep without the tune
[21:12] Happy: Just watching over the sick person.
[21:12] Murska: Time passes…
[21:12] Murska: In the evening, Arik returns.
[21:13] Shadowcaller: He enters the hut, looking pleased
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "How is she? Worse?"
[21:13] Happy: Her fever has gone down
[21:14] Shadowcaller: (Who says that?)
[21:14] Happy: Fedel
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "Ah, so she is going to get better?"
[21:16] Shadowcaller: Arik is looking straight at him, not that you can see much of his face anyway
[21:16] Happy: "I hope so."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: "Hope? Thats not good enough I'm afraid."
[21:17] Shadowcaller: He steps pass Fedel, toward the sleeping Cessie
[21:17] Happy: "You can demand certainties all you like, but I will remain unable to provide them."
[21:17] Murska: 'What are you doing?'
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "I'm going to give her some life energy. Its completly safe and *will* save her, unlike all this."
[21:19] Shadowcaller: He makes a sweeping gesture over the room
[21:20] Murska: 'Life energy… So there are no side-effects?'
[21:21] Shadowcaller: "Well, its rejected by healing of course, but I don't see any healers here anyway."
[21:21] Shadowcaller: (Its the same thing he gave to Hope.)
[21:21] Happy: "No. Not when the gods have been taken from us."
[21:22] Happy: (Except that with Hope, he gave it to her so she could heal Promise. he didn't give it to Promise directly)
[21:22] Shadowcaller: (yes, since that would not have saved him.)
[21:22] Murska: (How long will said life-energy impede healing efforts anyway?)
[21:22] Shadowcaller: (His body could never have healed all thoose wounds by themselves.)
[21:23] Murska: Aegnor looks downwards and doesn't say anything.
[21:23] Shadowcaller: (Depends on how fast the body uses them up.)
[21:23] Shadowcaller: *itself
[21:25] Murska: (He might've said something but Arik's comment was a pretty nasty hit.)
[21:25] Shadowcaller: He puts his hand on Cessies chest and there is a black surge of energy.
[21:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie opens her eyes and takes a deep breath. She blinks a few times, looking confused, and still a bit weak.
[21:27] Shadowcaller: "Life energy?…"
[21:28] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Yes, I'm telling you that you need to learn this. Healing is after all depended on some entity so far devoided from reality that it can't get up on its ass to do anything anymore."
[21:28] Shadowcaller: "And now they lost that too." He smiles at her
[21:29] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Thanks I guess… you used an animal?"
[21:29] Murska: (And she's still sick, btw)
[21:30] Shadowcaller: (Of course.)
[21:30] Shadowcaller: (Just gave her energy to fight the disease.)
[21:30] Shadowcaller: Arik: "Yes, a deer actually. But you should save its energy for the disease, not for talking with me."
[21:30] Shadowcaller: "If there is anything else you need help with, I be in my hut…"
[21:31] Shadowcaller: He leaves once again
[21:32] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "Uhh… how long was I gone? I feel so weak…"
[21:32] Murska: 'It's evening now. You should try to rest as much as you can.'
[21:33] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… I should…" She quickly closes her eyes as the end that sentance
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (Link:
[21:37] Murska: (lol)
[21:40] Happy: skip to the next morning?
[21:40] Shadowcaller: (Sure.)
[21:41] Murska: time passes and all that.
[21:41] Happy: The next day, Gilraen comes by.
[21:42] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still sleeping
[21:42] Murska: Aegnor is leaning on the wall next to her.
[21:46] Happy: (Awake or asleep?)
[21:47] Murska: Awake
[21:47] Murska: he hasn't slept
[21:47] Shadowcaller: (At all? o.O)
[21:48] Murska: yeah
[21:48] Happy: Gilraen knocks.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: (Lets call the thing a "sarf".)
[21:49] Murska: (I'll just call it a door.)
[21:49] Murska: Aegnor gets up and opens it.
[21:49] Shadowcaller: (Aww.)
[21:50] Happy: "How is she?"
[21:51] Murska: 'Sleeping, still. Maybe a bit better.'
[21:55] Shadowcaller: (New goblin comic.)
[21:55] Shadowcaller: (And *poke*)
[21:58] Happy: "Is there anything I can do?
[21:59] Murska: Aegnor sighs and stands up. 'I think it's best to let her sleep for now.'
[22:00] Happy: "And you?"
[22:01] Murska: 'Hm? What about me?'
[22:02] Happy: "I'd say you could do with sleep as well."
[22:02] Murska: 'Mm. Maybe I will, at some point.'
[22:04] Shadowcaller: You can hear Cessie saying something behind you, "Ugh… what time is it?"
[22:05] Murska: Aegnor looks at Gilraen, expecting her to answer.
[22:05] Happy: "Mid-morning."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "That don't tell me much I'm a afraid, I think I completly lost track of time."
[22:06] Shadowcaller: "Could I get some water please?"
[22:10] Happy: Simone gets Cessie some water.
[22:10] Happy: "How are the preparations for the warcamp coming along?"
[22:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie drinks greedily
[22:12] Shadowcaller: Then she gives the bottle (or whatever it is) back to Simone "Thanks…"
[22:12] Murska: Aegnor walks to her near the door. 'Right… you've been gathering the required supplies. The recruits and craftsmen should be ready to go there and start the building soon.'
[22:13] Shadowcaller: (At least he don't need to worry so much about Cessie now.)
[22:16] Happy: "They can leave when you think best. I suppose…" She pauses, and looks over at Cessie. "I suppose you'll want to stay here."
[22:17] Shadowcaller: "I'm feeling much better now really… he don't need to stay."
[22:19] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, you are needed out there. You won't make any difference in here." Her voice is still weak, but overall she appears much healthier
[22:21] Murska: 'No chance. I'll be going after them when you're healthy again.'
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "I do find Aegnor, it might take days for me to fully recover, think of Hope and Promise…"
[22:23] Shadowcaller: *fine
[22:23] Murska: 'There's nothing I can do there that I couldn't do from here. I'll have Saren relay my orders if they're needed.'
[22:23] Happy: "Saren isn't exactly popular."
[22:26] Murska: Aegnor raises his eyebrow. 'You can't ask Cessie to use her magic for something like that.'
[22:27] Happy: "No, of course not. But if you aren't going to the warcamp, you need a leader there in your place."
[22:28] Murska: 'They won't be doing anything but building it up. Suroshian can handle the recruits.'
[22:29] Happy: "That's fine. Then you should have Saren report to Suroshian and let Suroshian relay your orders. It would be better for morale."
[22:29] Shadowcaller: "And I think *I* can decide what I can do or not Aegnor."
[22:31] Murska: 'Don't even try. I know people with their limbs cut off who still shouted that they can go back and fight. You're resting.'
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "Its not that exhausting to use telepathy…"
[22:34] Shadowcaller: "Its not like I'm asking to run all the way there."
[22:34] Murska: Aegnor turns to Gilraen. 'Right, I'll do that, of course.'
[22:37] Happy: "I suppose I should leave you alone then."
[22:38] Murska: (Sent the start of the narration)
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Well, he is the boss… apperently."
[22:41] Murska: 'I'll be here if there are any further problems. Try and get them to depart as soon as possible.'
[22:41] Murska: Aegnor turns and walks back to Cessie.
[22:41] Happy: "I will," Gilraen says. And she leaves.
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "I don't relly think this disease have effected my magic Aegnor, magic is fine for me."
[22:44] Murska: He sits down next to her. 'I don't want you to do anything that isn't necessary for your recovery.'
[22:45] Happy: (Would Arik want her to use magic I wonder?)
[22:45] Shadowcaller: (What do you mean?)
[22:45] Shadowcaller: "I really need to learn spells for these kind of situations."
[22:45] Happy: (She thinks it's safe. Would he agree?)
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (Well, magic is done with the mind, its don't tire you more then reading a book.)
[22:47] Murska: (Reading a book is a good way to get sleepy. :P)
[22:47] Happy: (reading a book tires me…)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: (Yes, it dose tire you.)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: (Thats why I used that example.)
[22:49] Shadowcaller: (But its more in a mental tired then physical tired.)
[22:49] Happy: (But mental effort still burns physical energy. The brain uses a lot of glucose)
[22:49] Murska: (Heh. Distinction between mental and physical is funny.)
[22:50] Murska: (Mental things are still physical, just more sophisticated.)
[22:50] Shadowcaller: (Yes, but its "more" in that way.)
[22:51] Murska: (I don't have a stance on this subject, I just find the whole 'mental/physical' divide funny, generally.)
[22:51] Happy: (I guess Aegnor didn't tell Hope to come back and heal Cessie though. Since that didn't happen.)
[22:54] Murska: (He didn't. He wasn't even talked about the contacts to the scout group during the first day of her sickness since nothing very important came up on that day.)
[22:56] Murska: So, the rest of the day passes, Cessie is treated and mostly sleeps and Aegnor watches over her. Anything I missed?
[22:57] Shadowcaller: Not really, she might mention that dream thought >.>
[22:57] Murska: (And someone has to narrate the Yuki-Joro/Cessie conversation. >.>)
[22:57] Murska: Well, if she does, you start it. :P
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (Well, Yuki will tell something about how Aegor suffered or something and how he will never rest, torrment in enternity… that stuff.)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor… I had this very strange dream the night I got sick."
[22:59] Happy: (Wouldn't Cessie just start with a fireball?)
[22:59] Shadowcaller: (Yes, she would.)
[23:00] Murska: Aegnor stops pacing around and sits next to her. 'Oh?'
[23:01] Shadowcaller: "You know things about dream right?"
[23:01] Shadowcaller: *dreams
[23:02] Murska: 'I can dream, yeah…'
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "Well, elves were druids, druids could dream-wander.. sorry if I made that assumption."
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "I guess you don't know more about dream then I do."
[23:05] Murska: Aegnor gently places his hand on her forehead while she's talking. 'Your fever is lower.' He smiles.
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "You don't need to tell me that, that my head stopped hurting was a good enough sign thank you."
[23:07] Murska: He withdraws his hand. 'Sorry. What was the dream like?'
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "It was very strange… you were in it actually."
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "Ugh, its too silly really…"
[23:10] Murska: He smiles encouragingly, happy to see her more active than before.
[23:13] Shadowcaller: She looks at Aegnor, trying to see how intrested he is in the story
[23:16] Murska: Aegnor is interested, and also wants her to speak of it just because it's better than her just lying there and getting frustrated at her sickness. She doesn't seem very tired right now, either. Of course, his face only shows the first part.
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Well… *sigh* I dreamt I was back at the university."
[23:23] Murska: (I hope you don't expect Aegnor to do/say something between every sentence. :P)
[23:23] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, busy >.>)
[23:24] Shadowcaller: "Then suddenly there was music, so I looked out my window."
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "There was someone playing music… and then Arik came."
[23:27] Shadowcaller: "And… started to kill the audience."
[23:28] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, it was a really strange dream, I ran down to him, trying to stop him… and then it got wierder."
[23:29] Shadowcaller: "You turned out to be the one playing music… and there was a little girl… you and Arik talked."
[23:30] Shadowcaller: She pauses
[23:30] Murska: Aegnor is now really interested. It's like a look into Cessie's subconscious.
[23:30] Murska: 'Go on?'
[23:32] Shadowcaller: "If you wish…" She looks a bit doubtful, but continues "The girl called me "mother" and Arik uncle…"
[23:32] Shadowcaller: "She looked like me…"
[23:33] Happy: (she looked like both of you. Her hair was dark red)
[23:33] Murska: Aegnor's eyes widen, he looks a bit shocked for a fleeting moment before he regains control of his face.
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (Hm, how do half-elves look like anyway?)
[23:34] Shadowcaller: (I thought you said "a hint of red" or something)
[23:34] Happy: (It wouldn't matter how they really looked. It'd matter how Cessie thinks they would look)
[23:34] Happy: (Yeah, more black than red)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: "It was a strange dream." She smiles a bit
[23:37] Murska: He smiles back, although she gets the feeling that he's really thinking about it quite deeply.
[23:38] Shadowcaller: "What are you thinking about?"
[23:38] Murska: 'It's just…'
[23:40] Shadowcaller: "What?"
[23:40] Shadowcaller: She looks at Aegnor curiosly
[23:41] Murska: His smile is somehow warmer. 'You know… I hadn't even thought of it.'
[23:42] Shadowcaller: She looks thoughtful a moment, "Well… neither had I actually."
[23:45] Murska: He slides his hand through her hair. 'Do you think…'
[23:49] Shadowcaller: She looks into your eyes, her face looking completly neutral, but you can sense a smile behind her straight face "Think what?"
[23:51] Murska: 'Wouldn't it be… nice?'
[23:53] Shadowcaller: "To have a child?… thats such a big decision. I never even imagined it really…"
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "But if I ever had a child, it would be with you Aegnor, as always." Her neutral face breaks into a huge smile.
[23:55] Murska: Aegnor hugs her, not really caring about her probably contagious illness.
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor…" She whispers softly in your ear.
[23:59] Murska: 'I love you so much…'
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "I love you too, but you know that, you know that…"
[00:05] Shadowcaller: Cessie and Aegnor hold each other like that for some time I guess, then she starts to get a bit tired again
[00:20] Murska: 'You need to rest.' Aegnor withdraws from the hug.
[00:21] Shadowcaller: Cessie closes her eyes for a while, then slowly opens them "…I guess I do."
[00:25] Shadowcaller: She lays down into the bed again
[00:25] Murska: 'You'll be fine soon.' Aegnor leans against the wall again.
[00:26] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes, you can soon hear her snore a bit
[00:27] Murska: Aegnor remembers what Gilraen said, and tries to sleep himself.
[00:27] Murska: And time passes again. Now let's see
[00:27] Murska: how manyth day is this again after the scouts left… >.>
[00:29] Shadowcaller: Lets do
[00:32] Murska: Uh. Hmm.
[00:33] Murska: Meh, who cares. Let's say it's the sixth and any missing days were between Cessie telling of the dream and the camp-builders leaving.
[00:33] Shadowcaller: If you wish
