Late Autumn, Year 759 of the New Age
Windborne, The Cape
The icy touch of ocean breeze caressed his pelt, heavy with the promise of winter. It would only get colder when the sun set, but Fox was hesitant to use his magic to warm the air around him, lest his enemy sense its usage. This far into the interior of the Cape, it was too much of a risk. This whole mission was one monumental risk... but its potential success was too sweet to dismiss.
His spy – his daughter – had reluctantly come to him with news of the crèche; a place for both the splinter herds to pool their children, so that the fawns could grow up safely and in the company of their allies. All the fawns in one place... all the hostages. He only need kidnap them in the night, steal them away like a hungry eagle on high, then he could use them as leverage to ensure the Alliance’s compliance. The king had eagerly agreed to t

Mid -Autumn Year 758 of the New Age
Glenmore , Near the Great Oak
Selena glanced up at the Great Oak. It had been awhile since she’d come out this way and she sort of missed the sight of the giant thing. It had always been lovely but today, the thunderclouds made it seem so dark here. She’d spent all day healing the sparring stags and playing with the fawns. Although it had been a long day for her, she just wanted to go exploring through Glenwood but with all the sparring going on, she couldn’t risk leaving and then some stag needing her help. So she stuck around for a bit longer. This was her life, all the time. Healing and resting and sometimes playing with the little fawns running around. She was a healer. That was her job and she didn’t mind it but it often made her tired. She made her way around the Oak, seeking out anyone who might need her

Through the window in my mind
as I watch from behind my closing eyes
with the joys of happiness dripping through my veins
I see charging violently,
With their eyes full on fire.
I see horses.
Brilliant bright lights blinding.
Horses, horses blinding me softly.
emitting from their shining bodies
and rhythm sounding powerfully
from large elegant hooves.
Bright, shining light
from their glowing silver bodies.
from brilliant black outlines.
Freedom ebbing from pulsing veins
reverting back toward my gaze
feelings of wonder.
bright and shining,
free and wild.
They gallop from within my weak grip
And disappear as I awaken my eyes
To view their full, great beauty.
But they have gone.
They have flown.
Stretching out powerful strides
running from this mist,
that surrounds me.
They have gone.
Left me alone.
They were horses, horses
Free before my eyes.
On fire with beauty
Before The Fall - Chapter 2Last night’s sleep was the same again, nightmare upon nightmare of that one day. He woke up screaming, his bed soaked with sweat. He never let on to other people that that one day traumatised him for years.Before The Fall - Chapter 28 months ago in Settings More Like This
He laid on his bed for a few moments and breathed, his body wet from the sweat of the night. He got up and had a shower, the steam drifted through the bathroom into the bedroom as he stepped out. He walked into the room, hair dripping with water, his towel around his waist, the steam swirled around the room as the room darkened. Freddie lifted his head, he was bewildered about the fact that the room had suddenly got dark. Shrieks of horror echoed around his head. A large figure dropped before him, a horse. Freddie staggered backwards, his body shaking. The horse had something tucked between the wings it had before falling, it was him. He screamed, “It was my fault! I did this!” His screeches echoed through the house and out into the courtyard.

An amber glow gently touched the beautiful scenery at Harmony Equestrian Center as the morning sun slowly drifted away from the horizon. It was early yet, only calm snorts and sighs could be heard from the content horses that rested in their stables.
The lodge's door creaked in a slow high pitched squeal despite Skye's obvious attempt to not disrupt the peaceful silence. She cringed as the pebbled ground made it near impossible for her footsteps to go unheard. She made her way towards the main kitchen for some much needed coffee, when sounds of frantic scratchings of pen to paper coming from the office caught her attention. Yawning she made her way over to the unmistakable cause of the noise.
At a large wooden mahogany desk a tall and handsome young man with dark brown hair roughly tied in a pony tail half gazed up at the sound of her feet dragging across the floor as if not wanting to avert his attention from the stacks of papers that lay in front of him.
"Dei, don't tell me you've be
