Mating Ceremony

[16:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks around I guess, after she woken up
[16:11] Wolfbane: Promise exits the tent and walks to Happy. "Should we talk to them now?"
[16:13] Happy: "Yes," she says, with a smile, and goes with him.
[16:14] Wolfbane: Promise walks with her to the ship.
[16:14] Happy: Ai will feel that Happy wants to see him.
[16:14] Murska: Aegnor is probably the last one found, since he's gone off to be alone before the others woke up.
[16:15] Shadowcaller: Ai smiles when you find him, "I belive I will be granted a honour?"
[16:16] Happy: Happy hugs him, too happy to speak.
[16:16] Wolfbane: Promise smiles. "I would hope so."
[16:17] Shadowcaller: "Whatever you feel so happy about, i will glady accept any offer you have."
[16:17] Wolfbane: Promise explains about the ceremony.
[16:18] Happy: "I want you there, very much," she says.
[16:19] Shadowcaller: "Why in the world would I want to miss this?"
[16:20] Shadowcaller: "Two souls uniting in one desire… this is the reason I exist."
[16:21] Shadowcaller: "I have seen many other things such as this, many times the souls had very different desires when they did so."
[16:21] Shadowcaller: "But this time… I hope whatever binds you to each other will last, you are one right now."
[16:23] Happy: "We still need to ask Cessie and Aegnor. Do you know where they are?"
[16:25] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor went off somewhere I think, he desire to speak with the spirits of this place i belive."
[16:25] Shadowcaller: "Cessie.. is harder to read."
[16:26] Happy: "Probably in her cabin. Shall we go and find Aegnor and bring him back? I think it would be best if we ask them together."
[16:27] Wolfbane: "Yes, that sounds like a good idea."
[16:28] Shadowcaller: "She have become increasingly harder to read for some time, I belive she have found a way of blocking me,"
[16:28] Wolfbane: "Why would she want to?"
[16:28] Happy: "She values her privacy."
[16:29] Shadowcaller: "Yes, I belive that is the reason."
[16:29] Shadowcaller: "She don't want my company ass much as you do."
[16:29] Shadowcaller: *as
[16:29] Happy: (and she's going mad with power mwahahahaha)
[16:29] Shadowcaller: (No, she don't <.<)
[16:30] Wolfbane: (yeah she is. :P)
[16:30] Shadowcaller: (Bah, you know nothing of me.)
[16:30] Happy: Happy hugs Ai again and kisses him on the cheek. "We'll see you soon. Thank you for sharing this day with us."
[16:31] Happy: And they go to look for Aegnor.
[16:31] Shadowcaller: "I would not miss it for all things in the world…"
[16:31] Wolfbane: Promise turns for a second and smiles before leaving. "Thank you."
[16:32] Shadowcaller: Ai smiles back to Promise and bows
[16:33] Shadowcaller: *pokes Murska*
[16:33] Murska: ?
[16:33] Shadowcaller: (Just checking if you are here.)
[16:34] Wolfbane: (Huh, Ranna is Fin's girlfriend?)
[16:34] Murska: (It's not like I have a life or anything)
[16:34] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.)
[16:34] Shadowcaller: (What? o.O)
[16:34] Wolfbane: (Fin posted in Central)
[16:34] Wolfbane: (Put Backstabbery on hold until Ranna is out of the hospital)
[16:35] Shadowcaller: (Hm, he never told us that before o.O)
[16:36] Shadowcaller: (Brb, speak with Aegnor now <.<)
[16:37] Wolfbane: (Do we find Aegnor?)
[16:37] Murska: (Yeah, sure)
[16:37] Happy: And after searching around a while, they find him.
[16:38] Murska: There is a dagger laying on his hand but he seems to have forgotten all about it. You, for once, manage to approach unnoticed.
[16:41] Wolfbane: Promise sees the dagger. "Aegnor?"
[16:42] Murska: He blinks and stands up, sliding the dagger back into it's sheath. 'What? Oh, you two.' He bows with a flourish. 'What gives me this honour?'
[16:42] Happy: "We have something we'd talk to you and Cessie both about," Happy says. "Don't worry, it's nothing bad." *smiling*
[16:44] Murska: Aegnor's eyes study them for a moment. 'Sure, it's not like I'm doing anything useful.'
[16:45] Happy: They walk back to the ship and knock on Cessie's door.
[16:45] Happy: (and i guess wait there for SC)
[16:47] Murska: to shopping, go, shall I
[16:47] Wolfbane: (You are leaving?)
[16:48] Murska: Indeed, such is the case. See you in ten to twenty minutes
[16:50] Shadowcaller: Back
[16:50] Happy: hi
[16:50] Shadowcaller: Hello
[16:51] Wolfbane: Hi
[16:52] Shadowcaller: (Whats going on?)
[16:52] Happy: Someone's knocking on Cessie's door, but Murska stepped out for a few minutes.
[16:52] Shadowcaller: (okay, so wait for him then?)
[16:52] Happy: (yeah)
[16:58] Murska: back
[16:58] Happy: knock knock
[16:58] Shadowcaller: "Hello?"
[17:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie opens the door, it looks like she been interrupted in her study
[17:01] Shadowcaller: "Oh, quite the gathering, are the repais finished already?"
[17:01] Shadowcaller: *repairs
[17:02] Wolfbane: Promise smiles. "Not exactly. Happy and I would like to speak to you two about something."
[17:02] Happy: brb
[17:03] Shadowcaller: "Um, okay… I guess it must be pretty important right?" She glances back at her books for a while
[17:03] Murska: Aegnor just shrugs at her. 'I'd guess.'
[17:03] Shadowcaller: "Very well, tell us then."
[17:05] Wolfbane: Promise tells the two about the ceremony and that they are invited.
[17:05] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks a bit bothered by this "…We are going into the middle of the jungel?"
[17:06] Shadowcaller: "Can we really trust this tribe that much?"
[17:06] Murska: 'Hmm… I'm sorry but I have other arrangements…' Then he grins. 'Kidding. I'm coming, and it'll take more than a few armies to stop me.'
[17:06] Happy: "And will you play the music for us, Aegnor?"
[17:06] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "We can trust them."
[17:06] Murska: 'I would be glad to.'
[17:08] Shadowcaller: "How long would this wedding last?"
[17:08] Murska: Aegnor glances at Cessie.
[17:09] Shadowcaller: "..Sorry."
[17:09] Shadowcaller: "I'm just a bit bothered about the tribes, I would like to come."
[17:10] Wolfbane: "I believe that it wouldn't be too long for the actual ceremoy itself. Most of it is the hunting of each other."
[17:10] Shadowcaller: "Hunting?"
[17:10] Happy: Happy blushes, smiling.
[17:11] Shadowcaller: Cessie seems to be a bit confused by all this
[17:11] Shadowcaller: "Err… is there something we need to do?"
[17:12] Happy: "Just feasting and dancing."
[17:12] Shadowcaller: "I doubt I will do either, but I will be there."
[17:12] Wolfbane: "And in Aegnor's case, music."
[17:13] Murska: 'Of course. It's not like you would want me there otherwise.' *smile*
[17:13] Wolfbane: Promise chuckles.
[17:15] Happy: "There's something else too," she says bashfully, and clasps hands with Promise. "Promise has given me a name."
[17:15] Shadowcaller: "So… when are we leaving?"
[17:15] Shadowcaller: "A name? For what?"
[17:16] Murska: 'You shall be using that one from now on, I assume?'
[17:16] Wolfbane: He smiles and squeezes Happy's hand. "You must be named for the ceremony, and I needed to give her one.."
[17:17] Shadowcaller: "So many new things…"
[17:18] Happy: "Yes, from now on."
[17:18] Shadowcaller: "Whats wrong with your current name?"
[17:19] Murska: 'So, can you tell me the name so I can start referring to you appropriately?'
[17:19] Happy: "It was a childhood name, not one that was earned."
[17:19] Shadowcaller: "Well, I don't think I ever earned my name either."
[17:20] Happy: Happy looks at Promise, waiting for him to tell them her name.
[17:20] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at her. "The name I have given her is Hope." Aegnor probably knows the significance of this because he knew about the deathwish.
[17:21] Murska: Aegnor smiles. 'Right. Hope, I apologize beforehand for my possible mishaps in the next few days, since I have grown accustomed to referring to you with your old name.'
[17:22] Shadowcaller: "But… thats the name I have know her for all this time."
[17:23] Happy: "Cessie, you can still call me Happy if you want. I won't be offended."
[17:23] Shadowcaller: "Good, if your not offended that is."
[17:23] Shadowcaller: "All these new names confuse me…"
[17:24] Wolfbane: Promise chuckles. "They can be if you are not used to them."
[17:24] Happy: Hope smiles, a little saddened, but tries not to let it show.
[17:25] Murska: Aegnor knows the significance of names to most people, but he himself doesn't really care about them. He's had a lot of them during his life, although Aegnor's the one he usually uses since it's the one given to him by his parents.
[17:26] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't really understand any of this and neither dose she pretend to, she don't notices Happy's saddness
[17:28] Shadowcaller: "So… when are we going?"
[17:28] Wolfbane: "It should be soon. About an hour after breakfast which is ready thanks to Hope."
[17:29] Shadowcaller: "This is going to be *very* confusing…"
[17:31] Happy: "Ai is going with us as well."
[17:31] Shadowcaller: "Well, he would fit in, he can even become a wolfen."
[17:33] Wolfbane: "So you two will come then?" Promise looks hopeful.
[17:34] Shadowcaller: "Yes, of course we will."
[17:34] Murska: 'You couldn't keep me away.'
[17:34] Happy: Hope hugs them both. "I have to go get ready. I'll see you in an hour."
[17:35] Shadowcaller: "Right, I should cast some spells.."
[17:37] Happy: Hope wonders what spells might be necessary, but doesn't ask, since discussions with Cessie about magic tend to go over her head.
[17:38] Shadowcaller: (fast foward to that point then?)
[17:39] Murska: Aegnor finetunes his guitar. :P
[17:39] Shadowcaller: Cessie cast a few spells
[17:39] Happy: She goes off alone to a nearby stream to bathe in, and changes into her best leather clothing, rather than the more modest stuff she'd gotten in the habit of wearing since travelling with Cessie.
[17:40] Shadowcaller: (And that is?)
[17:41] Happy: (she's dressed like her character page now, clothing she's made herself from all the animal skins she's been accumulating)
[17:41] Shadowcaller: (Ahh..)
[17:41] Shadowcaller: (Well, Cessie have never been dressed in the dress she have on the character page.)
[17:42] Happy: (*cough* the night in the glade?)
[17:42] Murska: (That panther skin? :P)
[17:43] Shadowcaller: (Gah, why must I be shown in a dress I had *one* night?)
[17:43] Happy: (I don't think that's a dress, just a sheet.)
[17:43] Shadowcaller: (Well, whatever.)
[17:43] Murska: (Maybe the wiki is being written by Aegnor in the future)
[17:43] Happy: XD
[17:44] Happy: So… the party gathers outside the ship.
[17:44] Happy: Happy's hair is loose and unbraided, falling to the middle of her back.
[17:44] Murska: Aegnor asks them for any song wishes.
[17:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie have learned the ward spell
[17:45] Happy: "Anything about love, and friendship."
[17:45] Happy: (what does it ward her from?)
[17:45] Shadowcaller: (God-damn thieves…)
[17:45] Happy: (pickpockets?)
[17:45] Murska: (That song I was practicing? :P)
[17:45] Shadowcaller: (Physical contact.)
[17:45] Happy: (poor Aegnor)
[17:45] Wolfbane: (hehe)
[17:45] Happy: "Especially the songs you've written. Those are my favourite."
[17:45] Murska: (ouch)
[17:46] Shadowcaller: (She don't have it on 24/7)
[17:47] Happy: Black Stripe is with the party as well.
[17:47] Happy: He leads you into the jungle.
[17:48] Shadowcaller: Cessie follows, a bit veary
[17:48] Shadowcaller: *weary
[17:48] Wolfbane: Promise follows him and has obviously tried to look his best.
[17:52] Happy: The jungle vegetation is thick and lush, but the Wolfen have made paths through it. There are the sounds of birds and the chatter of monkeys.
[17:55] Shadowcaller: Cessie gets increasingly worried about the wedding, yet keeps going
[17:57] Shadowcaller: Reminds her of the story of a man that should marry a monkey queen (and just the envoirment, not the wedding itself, please don't missunderstand me o.O)
[17:57] Happy: There are many criss crossing paths, but Black Stripe leads you confidently through them. Cessie would not be able to find her way back alone.
[17:57] Happy: (and what is Ai doing?)
[17:57] Shadowcaller: He is going along, he appears very Happy
[17:58] Murska: (That confused me until I noticed it was supposed to be lower-case. :P)
[17:59] Shadowcaller: (Yes,)
[17:59] Wolfbane: (Yeah, Promise wouldn't know what to do with /two/ Happy's. Well, I would, but the real one would be opposed to it. :P)
[17:59] Murska: (Now you know what I felt when I was surrounded by FIVE Cessies)
[18:00] Happy: (hehe)
[18:00] Shadowcaller: (They were all different!)
[18:00] Shadowcaller: (None of them was the real one!)
[18:00] Murska: (Even worse. that implies there is a real one, meaning there's six! :P)
[18:00] Happy: (there were seven. And one of them was a boy ^^)
[18:01] Murska: (That one doesn't count. O_o)
[18:01] Murska: (Looked like Arik.)
[18:01] Shadowcaller: (You just don't understand me…)
[18:02] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, are we still going?)
[18:02] Murska: (yup)
[18:02] Happy: If Aegnor is paying attention, he'd be able to find his way back. But he might be off in his own thuoghts.
[18:02] Shadowcaller: (We could reach Kyou today <.<)
[18:03] Murska: (Aegnor would probably find his way back just by following Cessie's tracks.)
[18:03] Shadowcaller: (He could always be guided by the spirits:)
[18:03] Happy: And the party reaches the Wolfen village.
[18:04] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks shocked at this, from her point of view, barbaric village
[18:05] Murska: Aegnor looks around, examining the area. Mostly terrain and layout of the village.
[18:07] Happy: There are many Wolfen around, male and female and pups. There are tables set up with lots of foods, fruits and nuts and meats. Aegnor can easily identify which Wolfen is the alpha by watching the interactions of the people, but Cessie won't pick up on it.
[18:08] Happy: She'll probably notice him however because of his extensive scarring, with huge patches of fur missing.
[18:08] Murska: Aegnor acts with proper manners and respect, even though he might be a bit rusty on Wolfen interactions.
[18:08] Happy: Whatever caused the scars happened a long time ago.
[18:09] Wolfbane: Promise kneels in front of Firestealer. "Thank you for doing this for us."
[18:09] Happy: (Firethief, not Firestealer)
[18:09] Wolfbane: Firethief*
[18:09] Happy: Hope kneels as well.
[18:10] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't speak to anyone, keeping as close to Aegnor as possible
[18:10] Shadowcaller: (They don't understand their language anyway.)
[18:10] Murska: Aegnor tries to read the situation to see if he's supposed to kneel. :P
[18:12] Happy: He is
[18:13] Shadowcaller: Cessie is unsure what to do
[18:13] Murska: He motions to Cessie and kneels.
[18:13] Wolfbane: (Ai probably would too)
[18:13] Shadowcaller: She sigh and kneels a bit
[18:16] Happy: Firethief to Promise: "Please make me known to your mate and your pack."
[18:17] Wolfbane: Promise turns to the others. "This is Firethief, he is the Alpha of this tribe."
[18:18] Shadowcaller: "…okay."
[18:18] Wolfbane: "He is their leader, so please treat him with respect."
[18:19] Murska: Aegnor knows this already. Not including his name, of course.
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "Are we supposed to do something special? Except kneeling that is.."
[18:23] Wolfbane: He turns to Firetheif. "The elf is Aegnor, a fine warrior. The female in the robes is named Cessie. She is the wizard. The third one is Ai. Ai is the disciple. And the last one, the one in leather is Hope, the one who I chose as a mate."
[18:23] Wolfbane: Firethief*
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (Do they even know what a wizard is?)
[18:24] Murska: Aegnor understands the word 'warrior' and his name.
[18:24] Wolfbane: (they would)
[18:24] Murska: It'd probably not be well-mannered to speak now.
[18:24] Murska: But if it's allowed, he'll say 'Bard.'
[18:24] Shadowcaller: (BS didn't apperently…)
[18:25] Happy: (he knows what a wizard is, he just didn't know you were one)
[18:27] Shadowcaller: (You know that you have gone far into a arrogant character when you have to stop the urge of saying "foolish mortal" all the time."
[18:27] Happy: Firethief indicates that you should stand.
[18:27] Wolfbane: Promise stands.
[18:27] Happy: Which Ai and Aegnor recognize
[18:27] Shadowcaller: Cessie stands, relived that she don't have to kneel
[18:27] Murska: Aegnor stands.
[18:29] Murska: (Nobody is paying anything I say any attention in the other chat. *sulk* *brb* *food*)
[18:29] Shadowcaller: (I gave up that chat a long time ago…)
[18:30] Shadowcaller: (Just RP people there.)
[18:35] Wolfbane: (but doesn't this make you an RP person?)
[18:36] Shadowcaller: (Not that kind of RP.)
[18:36] Wolfbane: (:P)
[18:37] Happy: Firethief: "Today we welcome Promise and Hope as they celebrate their choice of one another as mate."
[18:37] Happy: He pauses to let Promise translate.
[18:37] Wolfbane: Promise does so.
[18:37] Shadowcaller: Cessie remains quiet
[18:38] Murska: (so we didn't break SC after all?)
[18:38] Murska: (Or did he just recover)
[18:39] Shadowcaller: (What? o.O)
[18:40] Murska: (I organized a hug attack on you with Wolfbane in the other chat)
[18:40] Happy: "We name as witnesses: Aegnor, Cessie, Ai, and Iname."
[18:40] Shadowcaller: (I left that chat ages ago.)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: (I never noticed that.)
[18:41] Murska: Aegnor hears 'Iname' and seems interested.
[18:43] Happy: Two wolfen pups, male and female, step forward, each carrying a blue blanket.
[18:43] Shadowcaller: Cessie is still worried
[18:43] Happy: (stealing from Cherokee wedding traditions >.>)
[18:44] Wolfbane: (Go ahead)
[18:44] Happy: The boy places his blanket over Promise's shoulders, the girl over Hope's.
[18:49] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't do much, she is not the one for rituals
[18:49] Happy: "You come to us as two souls, each with your own burdens, sorrow, and loneliness."
[18:51] Happy: "Promise, have you chosen a mate to hunt with, in light and shadows, for the rest of your days?"
[18:51] Wolfbane: "Yes. I have."
[18:51] Happy: "What is her name?"
[18:52] Wolfbane: "Her name is Hope."
[18:53] Happy: "Hope, have you chosen a mate to hunt with, in light and shadows, for the rest of your days?"
[18:53] Happy: "I have."
[18:53] Happy: "What is his name?"
[18:53] Happy: "His name is Promise."
[18:54] Murska: (Hope and Promise… I thought I was bad at making up names. (jk) :P)
[18:54] Shadowcaller: (Hehe…)
[18:54] Shadowcaller: (Thats why Cessie don't like them, not names in a traditional sense.)
[18:55] Happy: Firethief takes each of their hands and joins them together, and then steps back.
[18:56] Murska: (Technically Happy would be like that. I think Cessie'd use Chelonie if she knew about it. :P)
[18:57] Happy: The pups run forward, not just the two from before, but a little swarm of them carrying a large white blanket. They pull off the blue blankets and using the white one, wind it around Promise and Hope until they are wrapped together.
[18:57] Happy: Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now you will feel no more loneliness,
For each of you will be a constant companion to the other.

Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life ahead of you.
[18:57] Shadowcaller: (I hate rituals…)
[18:58] Happy: (i thought you liked the funeral?)
[18:58] Shadowcaller: (Personally <.<)
[18:58] Murska: (I hate feeling so inadequate after seeing something as epic as this. :P)
[18:58] Shadowcaller: (Character wise She likes them.)
[18:59] Happy: The Wolfen all cheer. This seems to be the conclusion, as people gather round congratulating the couple.
[18:59] Murska: Aegnor also congratulates them, smiling broadly.
[19:00] Shadowcaller: Cessie stays out, she looks confused, this whole ritual feels very alien to her
[19:00] Wolfbane: Promise removes the blanket from the two so they won't get too tangled in it.
[19:00] Wolfbane: He smiles at Hope.
[19:01] Murska: Aegnor returns to Cessie after noticing her confusion and touches her arm encouragingly(but gets warded?)
[19:01] Happy: Hope embraces her mate.
[19:01] Shadowcaller: The ward reacts, but dimisses again
[19:02] Shadowcaller: "I don't understand any of this Aegnor…"
[19:02] Happy: Some of the Wolfen start playing music.
[19:02] Murska: 'Give up on trying to understand it then. This moment is theirs. Hope is happy and finally she won't have to ever be alone anymore. Isn't that worthy of a celebration?'
[19:03] Happy: Some are eating, some dancing. There are young couples flirting with each other.
[19:03] Shadowcaller: "Its not easy to let go in all this, I don't know anyone here, sorry but I can't…"
[19:04] Happy: Hope runs over to both of them and tries to hug them both.
[19:04] Murska: 'Just try to relax a bit. Eat something… You don't have to go dancing or party with them.'
[19:04] Shadowcaller: "I don't feel very hungry…"
[19:04] Shadowcaller: *gets hugged, tries to smile*
[19:05] Happy: (And Ai?)
[19:05] Murska: Aegnor also gets hugged, and doesn't have to try to smile. :P
[19:06] Shadowcaller: (Gah, he lets the couple have their moment, the just smiles encouragly.)
[19:06] Happy: And there is a party. And Cessie is miserable while everyone else is happy. :S
[19:06] Shadowcaller: (She have assumed wolfen form and feels like just another party member.)
[19:07] Happy: Enjoying the atmosphere of courtship?
[19:07] Shadowcaller: Err… well, how would you feel if yyou suddenly were in a party with a lot of wolfen that you hardly have met all your life?
[19:08] Shadowcaller: You cna't understand any of them and they have to you very strange rituals
[19:08] Shadowcaller: 'can't
[19:08] Happy: (Poor Cessie)
[19:08] Happy: So I imagine Aegnor plays music with the Wolfen musicians, while Cessie sits nearby?
[19:09] Shadowcaller: She dose
[19:09] Murska: Aegnor starts playing. ((Link:
[19:09] Wolfbane: (heh of course)
[19:09] Murska: (missing the drum bits. :P)
[19:10] Shadowcaller: (She can't relaxe around here:S)
[19:10] Shadowcaller: *relax
[19:10] Happy: Too bad she's shielded from Ai. He'd probably influence her desires a little to make her at least a little less nervous.
[19:10] Happy: The Wolfen have drums
[19:10] Shadowcaller: He would have, but she don't like to be influenced
[19:10] Murska: Snare drums and cymbals?
[19:10] Wolfbane: Promise stays near Hope during the event.
[19:11] Happy: Make snares out of a string of tiny nutshells? ^^
[19:11] Happy: Promise and Hope are often pulled apart to dance with others.
[19:12] Murska: Aegnor picks cheerful songs and never stops playing, improvizing bridges between the songs beginning. His influence makes people want to dance and have a fun time.
[19:12] Shadowcaller: Cessie is not influenced, she see everything from a negative point of view at this point
[19:13] Happy: When the party seems at its height, there seems to be some signal the Wolfen all recognize. The males drag Promise in one direction, and the females drag Hope in another. It probably looks rather alarming to Cessie.
[19:13] Happy: Aegnor can tell it's part of the ceremony.
[19:14] Happy: (wizard freak out! XD)
[19:14] Shadowcaller: SHe don't do anything for now, she hopes that its just a part of this, to her a bit too wild ritual
[19:15] Shadowcaller: She can'
[19:16] Shadowcaller: *can't really feel Happys and Promise happiness in all of this
[19:16] Happy: The men and women seem to be chanting back and forth to one another, some type of ritual challenge song.
[19:16] Shadowcaller: Right now she wants to be back with her books
[19:16] Happy: Then Hope takes off running into the jungle, while the women cheer.
[19:17] Happy: After a few minutes, Promise is released to chase after her, to the cheers of the men.
[19:17] Murska: Aegnor goes to Cessie now that he isn't needed anymore, hoping he'd find some way to cheer her up.
[19:17] Wolfbane: When able to, Promise runs after her.
[19:17] Happy: Back in the village, the party resumes.
[19:18] Happy: Hope leads him off on a merry chase, but he can easily track her scent.
[19:18] Shadowcaller: It looks like Cessie is trying to hide within her own world at the moment
[19:19] Wolfbane: Promise follows her scent through the jungle.
[19:19] Murska: Aegnor sits down next to her, without saying anything. He isn't smiling anymore, but instead looks somewhat sad.
[19:20] Shadowcaller: "Hello Aegnor."
[19:21] Murska: He doesn't say anything.
[19:22] Shadowcaller: "You should go back to the party… I don't think I can take part of all this."
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "Its just not me." She smiles weakly
[19:23] Happy: Hope finds a tree to climb.
[19:23] Murska: 'I can't have fun if you're all miserable and alone here.'
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "I should not prevent you from having fun Aegnor, its just who I am."
[19:24] Shadowcaller: "You don't join me in studying either right?"
[19:25] Wolfbane: Promise tracks the scent but stops when the scent dies suddenly. He looks around. "Hope?"
[19:25] Murska: 'But how do you expect me to be happy if you are sad?'
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sad Aegnor, I'm just… not having fun, we all have different options of fun right?"
[19:26] Shadowcaller: "Not everyone think dance and song is funny…"
[19:26] Happy: (why would the scent die suddenly? She didn't teleport into the tree)
[19:27] Murska: Aegnor just sighs.
[19:27] Wolfbane: (he is too caught up in it to think of a tree)
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "Please Aegnor, i'm just different okay? We don't exactly agree in everything…"
[19:28] Happy: Hope is watching him, not making a sound.
[19:29] Murska: 'Maybe it is so but do you think that'd make me feel any better about this?'
[19:29] Wolfbane: Promise sniffs around trying to locate her scent.
[19:29] Shadowcaller: "It takes time for me to gets used to these things… there is nothing you can do."
[19:30] Shadowcaller: "We won't stay here forever anyway."
[19:31] Murska: 'And knowing there's nothing I can do helps even less.' Aegnor tries a smile, but it falters. 'I'd just want all of my friends to be happy.'
[19:31] Happy: He catches her scent off the path.
[19:32] Wolfbane: Promise follows it, sneaking slowly.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: "We are to different to all be happy right now I'm afraid, this is not my world."
[19:32] Happy: He finds the tree which has her scene. Hope is still watching from above.
[19:33] Murska: 'Then if I can't help you be happy, the least I can do is give you company in not being happy.'
[19:33] Wolfbane: Promise realizes what it means and looks up.
[19:34] Happy: He sees Hope in the tree, grinning at him.
[19:34] Happy: She leaps to the ground and takes off running again.
[19:34] Shadowcaller: She sigh, if you wish, I doubt we can converse in all this noise thought
[19:34] Wolfbane: Promise grins and runs after her.
[19:35] Happy: Now that she's in his sight, she can't outrun him. He's got a longer stride.
[19:36] Murska: Aegnor knows how to get his words audible through the backround noise without shouting. 'You can tell me something I can do to make you happy afterwards, okay?'
[19:37] Wolfbane: Promise runs after Hope, catching up to her.
[19:37] Shadowcaller: "I be happy if we return to civilization again…"
[19:37] Happy: She's within his reach now, but still running.
[19:38] Murska: 'That's not something I can do', Aegnor complains, 'Unless you mean I should attempt to carry you to the nearest city.'
[19:39] Shadowcaller: "Ha, I could fly much faster then you can carry me, but once the zeppelin is repais I mean."
[19:39] Wolfbane: As soon as he can, Promise picks up Hope in his arms and slows down.
[19:40] Murska: 'So there's nothing I can do?'
[19:40] Shadowcaller: "Not right now I'm afraid, I just try to be happy for them okay? Then we can leave…"
[19:41] Happy: Aegnor can tell the party is going on fine without them. Nobody seems to expect the mated couple back any time soon.
[19:41] Murska: 'We can go back to the ship if you want to.'
[19:42] Shadowcaller: "Noo that would be rude right?"
[19:42] Shadowcaller: *No
[19:42] Happy: Hope is caught, squirming in his arms in a mock endeavour to escape.
[19:42] Murska: 'It doesn't seem like the newlyweds will be back any time soon.'
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "Well, we can wait right?"
[19:44] Shadowcaller: "I can start a fire, and we can just sit here…"
[19:44] Wolfbane: Promise holds on tight and chuckles.
[19:45] Murska: Aegnor hugs her. 'Whatever you wish.'
[19:45] Happy: "You caught me," Hope says, breathless from her running.
[19:45] Shadowcaller: Cessie smiles a bit and starts a small fire
[19:46] Shadowcaller: "Got any stories to tell?"
[19:47] Shadowcaller: "Any elven games.. magic?"
[19:47] Wolfbane: Promise is also breathing heavily and smiles at her. "I would say that it is you who have caught me."
[19:48] Murska: 'I have several stories, though none that would hold a candle to our everyday life. Sadly, the elven games I remember are just little children's ways to pass time.'
[19:48] Shadowcaller: "Well, truth or dare is not much more then that either, a childrens game."
[19:50] Murska: 'It's more for all ages.' Aegnor seems to look into somewhere distant. 'I don't remember many games… There was one I was never good at…'
[19:50] Shadowcaller: "And that was?"
[19:52] Murska: Aegnor holds his hands over the ground near Cessie's leg. A small green plant grows towards his hands and he guides it so it grows around her leg. 'The one who is tied up to being unable to grow any more loses.'
[19:52] Murska: 'I never had magic to create strong enough vines.'
[19:54] Shadowcaller: "Druidism.." She bends down, without moving her feets, touching the small plant.
[19:55] Happy: Hope nibbles at his throat. "You're mine, Promise."
[19:55] Murska: 'When I'm looking at how we passed time from this viewpoint, I realize that everything we did was in preparation, for us to learn how to protect ourself from the attacks.'
[19:55] Murska: '…not that it helped.'
[19:56] Wolfbane: Promise sets her down down gently. "Of course I am."
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "Attacks? The cultists?"
[19:56] Shadowcaller: "How did they… we called them "druids" remember?"
[19:56] Murska: 'Cultists, mercenaries, bandits…'
[19:57] Murska: 'Elves weren't liked back then. They had fled and left the humans with the Worm.'
[19:57] Happy: Hope takes a few steps backwards, waiting for Promise to follow. As soon as he does, she sweeps his legs and tackles him to the ground.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: "Well, i was more wondering how they could have learned druidism."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "In Hestopia elves were always seen as higher creatures… I never imagine I would see one."
[19:58] Shadowcaller: "ANd even less fall in love with one…"
[19:59] Murska: 'I'm glad to be able to suprise you. Hopefully positively.'
[19:59] Wolfbane: Promise falls back onto the ground, losing his breath.
[20:00] Shadowcaller: "You always manages to suprise me Aegnor, in one way oe the other…"
[20:01] Happy: Hope falls on top of him, pinning him down and gazing into his eyes. "And I am yours."
[20:01] Shadowcaller: 'or
[20:03] Murska: 'Likewise… at least the rest of my life shall be ever interesting.' Aegnor moves closer to her, until he is sitting right next to her.
[20:04] Shadowcaller: "Well, this makes me feel a bit better…"
[20:05] Shadowcaller: She leans against Aegnor
[20:05] Wolfbane: Promise acts pinned and smiles. "At this point I would have to say that I am at your mercy."
[20:06] Murska: Aegnor places an arm around her and holds her gently against him.
[20:07] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes and finally manages to relax
[20:07] Happy: Hope smirks back. "Then I'll have to take advantage of that."
[20:07] Shadowcaller: She don't say anything
[20:07] Happy: Sometime later..
[20:07] Happy: Hope and Promise return.
[20:08] Happy: Her hair is tangled and has leaves in it.
[20:08] Wolfbane: Promise's fur is ruffled.
[20:09] Murska: Aegnor looks peaceful. Like a part of the atmosphere around him, something you've grown so accustomed to seeing that you don't even notice it anymore, has disappeared.
[20:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie is sleeping next to Argnor apperntly
[20:10] Shadowcaller: 'apperently
[20:10] Happy: The party has mostly died down.
[20:11] Happy: They approach Aegnor and Cessie. "You didn't have to stay."
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is leaning next to Aegnor, asleep.)
[20:11] Shadowcaller: (She can't hear you)
[20:11] Happy: (She's talking to Aegnor then)
[20:12] Murska: 'No. We didn't have to.'
[20:13] Murska: Aegnor is speaking very quietly.
[20:14] Happy: She places her hand on his shoulder and squeezes it.
[20:16] Murska: Aegnor gives her a smile and then his gaze is drawn back to Cessie's sleeping face.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: She is still sleeping peacefully
[20:19] Happy: "Where is Ai?"
[20:19] Happy: (Hope speaks quietly too)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: (He is around here somehwere…)
[20:19] Shadowcaller: 'somewhere
[20:19] * moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes has left the conversation.
[20:20] Murska: The smile on Aegnor's face is one of those rare ones which have no hidden barbs on either himself or any of those he's talking to. 'I don't know… As you see, I haven't been able to move for a while.'
[20:20] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes) has joined the conversation.
[20:20] Shadowcaller: Hm?
[20:20] Murska: 'Aegnor sanoo:
The smile on Aegnor's face is one of those rare ones which have no hidden barbs on either himself or any of those he's talking to. 'I don't know… As you see, I haven't been able to move for a while.'
[20:22] Happy: Hope sits down next to Aegnor, hugging him and blinking back tears. "I couldn't have thought today could get any happier for me," she says softly.
[20:23] Murska: 'I guess she was wrong after all, earlier…'
[20:23] Happy: "About what?"
[20:24] Murska: 'She said that she didn't think all my friends could be happy at once… She was a bit uncomfortable with the party.'
[20:29] Shadowcaller: (*pokes*)
[20:30] Happy: "Oh. I didn't think. Of course, this isn't her kind of environment at all."
[20:31] Shadowcaller: Ai comes walking out of nowhere
[20:31] Shadowcaller: "Are you done then? WOlfen have some intresting ideas of partying…"
[20:31] Happy: (I can imagine what he's been doing >.>)
[20:31] Shadowcaller: (Hehe.
[20:32] Happy: "Yes, but we don't want to wake Cessie." Hope smiles at her fondly.
[20:32] Wolfbane: Promise smiles at Ai. "I take it you have had fun?"
[20:32] Happy: Though not quite as besottedly as Aegnor does.
[20:32] Shadowcaller: "Of course not, she still have her magic active apperently…"
[20:33] Shadowcaller: "Well, it was more important that the people around me had fun, but yes I did."
[20:33] Shadowcaller: "Their happiness is mine after all."
[20:34] Shadowcaller: "I guess everyone is sleeping right now?"
[20:35] Happy: There are wolfen moving around. It's early afternoon now, but quite a few are sleeping after the feasting and partying.
[20:37] Wolfbane: (Does Promise see Firethief?)
[20:39] Happy: (He and his mate are sitting together, talking affectionately. Weddings always make happy couples feel like reminiscing.
[20:39] Murska: (Hahaha… I did a search on the 'I shot a man in Reno' thing and ended up finding an epically fitting song: (Link:
[20:40] Happy: (Hey, SC - if you're the one who wants to go to Kyou, you have to have Cessie wake up. Because none of us will wake her.)
[20:41] Shadowcaller: (Okay, I'm just thought you wanted to finish something here first.)
[20:41] Happy: (only if Aegnor wants to ask about Iname)
[20:42] Murska: (He wouldn't think of something like that now.)
[20:42] Wolfbane: Promise puts a paw on Hope's shoulder. "We should probably tell Firethief our thanks."
[20:42] Shadowcaller: Cessie suddenly opens her eyes
[20:42] Happy: (Yeah, I didn't think so. Though he probably heard the name mentioned in some of the songs.)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: "We.. are done?"
[20:43] Happy: Hope stands up, smiles down at Cessie and Aegnor, and goes with Promise to take leave.
[20:44] Shadowcaller: She goes up on the ground and activates the ward again
[20:44] Shadowcaller: "Are we ready to go then?"
[20:44] Happy: Firethief stands to greet the couple as they approach.
[20:45] Murska: Aegnor gets up and moves his limbs a bit.
[20:46] Wolfbane: Promise kneels in front of him.
[20:46] Shadowcaller: Cessie appears ready to leave
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Are we supposed to…?"
[20:48] Murska: (Are we even near the Alpha?)
[20:48] Happy: Firethief indicates that they should rise.
[20:48] Wolfbane: Promise does so.
[20:48] Happy: (no, you guys aren't near him, but you can see him across the way)
[20:49] Shadowcaller: "Hm, just tell me what he says."
[20:50] Happy: "Are you and your mate ready to depart?"
[20:50] Wolfbane: "Yes we must be leaving. The carrier has been repaired."
[20:52] Happy: Hope "We are very grateful for your hospitality." (assume Promise translates)
[20:52] Wolfbane: (he does)
[20:54] Shadowcaller: Cessie remains quiet
[20:54] Shadowcaller: Ai smiles at the alpha, she appears to had a lot of fun at this party
[20:56] Happy: "Go in joy. May Iname's blessings rest on your union."
[20:57] Happy: (SC: (Link: )
[20:57] Shadowcaller: (yeye, I know all about him.)
[20:58] Murska: Aegnor hears the name again and remembers to ask about it from Promise: 'Hey, who is this Iname?'
[20:59] Wolfbane: "We will, and thank you." He pauses after hearing Aegnor's question. "My companion would like to know who Iname is."
[21:01] Happy: Firethief turns to his mate. "My mate Dawnhunter can tell you more of the stories."
[21:03] Wolfbane: Promise nods and turns to Dawnhunter. "If you would be willing, I could translate it to my companion."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: (And apperently I'm dawnhunter) Dawnhunter smiles at you and make a sign that indicates that she bless your uniation
[21:04] Shadowcaller: *unitcation
[21:05] Shadowcaller: "Promise… I am surprised you have not heard about our patron spirit before, are you that far away?"
[21:05] Shadowcaller: *suprised
[21:05] Wolfbane: "Yes, I was very far from here."
[21:06] Shadowcaller: "From what we have learned, Iname is everywhere, its a strange thought that there are areas that they not cover."
[21:07] Happy: (the word is union. one of those irregular adjectives)
[21:07] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, I looked it up.)
[21:07] Shadowcaller: (I should have known, really.)
[21:08] Shadowcaller: "Which oof your companions wishes to know? Your mate?"
[21:08] Shadowcaller: *one
[21:08] Shadowcaller: She smiles at Hope
[21:08] Shadowcaller: (Cessie is still going to call her Happy <.<)
[21:09] Wolfbane: Promise shakes his head. "The elf, Aegnor."
[21:10] Shadowcaller: She nods in the direction of Aegnor "What should I tell him then?"
[21:10] Wolfbane: "He wishes to know who Iname is."
[21:11] Shadowcaller: "Well, there is si much to tell… I suppose a short summary.." She seems a bit confused
[21:11] Shadowcaller: "Iname is the twin spirits of the world, end and beginning, life and death."
[21:12] Wolfbane: (he is translating)
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "They represent the natural order of things, everything have a beggining, everything have a end."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: *beginning
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "All you see around you is controlled by them."
[21:14] Shadowcaller: "Without life there is no death, without death, there is no life."
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "This order is sacred to us, and they represent it."
[21:16] Shadowcaller: "But there is not always perfect unision between them, while they are one being, they have two bodies, two wills…"
[21:18] Shadowcaller: "And lately, there have been even less unision between them than usual.."
[21:18] Shadowcaller: She smiles, "But I do not mean to worry you, is there anything else about them I should tell?"
[21:19] Murska: 'Tell her I've talked to 'them' and they told me to find someone else who is capable of talking to them… I'd like to know if she'd know of such an individual.'
[21:19] Wolfbane: He does so.
[21:21] Shadowcaller: She looks in shock at Aegnor, "Did.. you translate that correctly?"
[21:21] Wolfbane: Promise nods.
[21:21] Murska: Aegnor guesses from her reaction, and nods.
[21:22] Shadowcaller: "So, he says that he speaks to them? Ask him how."
[21:22] Wolfbane: Promise translates and continues to do so.
[21:23] Murska: 'I'm not sure… It's just something I can do.'
[21:23] Shadowcaller: SHe eyes him over, like she is trying to see some special quality in him she missed before.
[21:24] Murska: (be back soon… stomach acting up again)
[21:24] Happy: (:()
[21:25] Shadowcaller: "If he indeed speaks the truth… can you ask him why they argue so much right now?"
[21:32] Murska: (back)
[21:33] Murska: 'I gathered someone else was speaking to them… I'm not sure she is doing so knowingly… about death and devastation.'
[21:34] Shadowcaller: "That is.. ill news, who would do such a thing?"
[21:34] Murska: 'That's what I'd like to know.'
[21:35] Happy: (Waht's Cessie doing during this?)
[21:35] Shadowcaller: "Well, there are no such persons in this village."
[21:35] Shadowcaller: (She appears intrested in the conversation.)
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "I hope you find this invidual spirits speaker, I and my tribe wish you all luck."
[21:36] Shadowcaller: "We will also be looking for her."
[21:37] Shadowcaller: *spirit
[21:38] Shadowcaller: "Have you always been able to speak to them? The spirits that is?"
[21:39] Murska: 'Only after I was given an artifact.'
[21:40] Shadowcaller: "I see… may I look at this artifact Aegnor?" She show a sign that wolfbane knows is a sign of respect and peace
[21:40] Shadowcaller: Like a promise
[21:40] Wolfbane: Promise translated the gesture too.
[21:41] Murska: Aegnor carefully removes the ring from his finger.
[21:41] Murska: He hands it to her.
[21:41] Shadowcaller: She picks it up, it looks so tiny in her hands
[21:42] Shadowcaller: She studies it carefully and tries to put it on, it donsn't fir her finger however
[21:42] Shadowcaller: She slowly gives it back to you
[21:42] Murska: Aegnor quickly slips it back into his finger again.
[21:43] Shadowcaller: "I guess you are the one destined to hold this item Aegnor, it must have been given to you by the spirits themselves."
[21:44] Murska: 'Actually, it was a wizard…'
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "Keep it close, do not let anyone take it from you…"
[21:44] Shadowcaller: "The spirits must have made him give it to you Aegnor." She smiles
[21:45] Murska: 'The only spirit I could contact at first seemed to know nothing of it, though. It was just alone and in pain.'
[21:46] Shadowcaller: "I am sorry for that, I hope not Iname felt the same pain?"
[21:46] Wolfbane: (brb )
[21:47] Murska: 'They didn't. That spirit was under attack by something we fought off.'
[21:48] Shadowcaller: "I am glad that you have been able to aid one of the spirits, I hope it have been able to recover."
[21:48] Murska: 'I hope so too.'
[21:49] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor, we are honoured to have had a spirit speaker at our tribe, I am sure the two new mates relationship will be blessed beacuse of your presence here."
[21:50] Murska: 'I'm sure it would have been blessed anyway. They deserve it.'
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "You will be considered a sacred man to many you met Aegnor, I hope you use your gift wisely."
[21:52] Murska: 'I'll try…'
[21:52] Shadowcaller: She smiles, "The mates have you as a tribe member, I am sure you will."
[21:54] Murska: Aegnor looks like he's about to say something, but then just thanks her and says farewell(in Wolfen).
[21:55] Shadowcaller: She kneels before him and Firethief dose the same "Go in peace then spirit speaker."
[21:56] Murska: Aegnor seems quite confused by this but tries to extricate himself from the situation tactfully.
[21:56] Shadowcaller: Cessie also appears suprised by this but follows Aegnors lead
[21:57] Shadowcaller: (Are we leaving then?)
[21:57] Happy: (I think everyone's following Aegnor's lead now)
[21:57] Murska: (Then I guess we're leaving.)
[21:58] Shadowcaller: (fast forward back to the orginal time line then?)
[21:58] Happy: Yup
[21:58] Wolfbane: Promise thanks the Alphas one last time before putting an arm around Hope and leaving.
