I'm as inconsistent as ever, but I'm planning to be able to make more time for tokos while in the middle of studying for mock exams. I'll probably be just lurking around catching up and reorganising everything for a start, hope to become more involved after that.  
The end was closing in for Seon Theach on his quest for dominance, his handler was accompanying him along this tiresome journey and today was no different as Wylde was standing by his side. They were given the green light to complete the rites; they had to now complete the trek to the elders where the shaman will further instruct them. Both were giddy not wanting to waste any more time; the handler started the long walk ahead of them as the three-legged Seon hobbled his way towards the base of a mountain that stood in front of the duo. It was no walk in the park, and that was precisely what both expected as they listened to the warning that it was a challenge as the Tokotna gods would prefer not give out the rites sporadically. The location they were looking for was known as an isolated village who tended to keep to themselves; the shaman would most likely be expecting their arrival, so Wylde hoped that Seon didn't have to worry much after they reached the point. It was going to be a rough day as the weather conditions were not favourable, as a wind began to pick up as the team was just at the bottom of the mountain. The lilac tokota braced himself for this climb as he hoped it wouldn't take too much of their day as they still had to face further instructions from the shaman of the village. Working their way upwards most of the time was spent in silence as both Seon and Wylde were busy focusing on each step they took powering it up the mountain. The wind wasn't bothering them either as the two had prepared themselves in advance as they were well aware anything could be thrown in the way on their mission for Seon to reach dominance. It was not going to take much longer now as Seon glanced behind him to see the distance travelled, the tokota was high up which made his legs wobble slightly with nerves, he knew he didn't have time to be nervous as he threw his head back in the direction the lilac was going. Wylde gave him some reassurance as the handler had noticed the tense moment creep in a second ago. Trudging their way forth as they met with the snow that was dusting over the mountain range they knew it was too late to turn back around, Seon didn't wish to do so as a fire of determination grew in his belly, the lilac was going to face this final mission as best as he can. As they worked harder it had all paid off with the sight of the village tents that followed the wind's direction; smoke was rising outwards from fires that kept the people warm in such a difficult location for living. Walking closer with each step they saw a man coated in a cloak and headdress, both Seon and Wylde knew, he was the shaman. The tokota and handler didn't even realise how fast time went by or how tired both were as they had to catch their breath before speaking to the cloaked elder. They caught glimpses of looks that were given by other members of the close-knit community, wearily watching on as the outsiders entered their territory. Wylde thought they would have been used to the many tokotas and their handlers coming along for guidance from their elders but he had also heard that they are given different villages to go to, but it was a mystery of why. 

"Your spirit waiting for you, Seon Theach." Spoke the shaman in an almost hushed voice, he begins to walk off leaving the duo quickly trying to keep up as they were exhausted. The man led them off to a secluded part away from the village, and near a ledge of the mountain, it was quite dangerous, but Seon hid his fear quite well. He explained to the two that they must now take the trek onwards to the Soul Poul, and there Seon would drink the mythical waters that reveal the animal that closest resembles his soul. Once Wylde learnt they were only halfway through their journey, he sighed in exhaustion but knew he had to keep pushing ahead to assist his three-legged tokota. The meeting with the shaman was brief as he began to resume back to the village after giving a vague description of where they'd be able to locate the cave in where the Soul Pool was hidden. With the two kicking off their next long trek to their destination they began to head in the direction over where the elder had pointed them towards just before. Wylde led the way for the bobtail tokota who was busy looking at some children within the village playing together. Now they had to keep their focus on track with the task at hand; they expected it would be a rough couple of hours to reach the Soul Pool with their descent down this challenging mountain than the next issue of a locating the entrance to the sacred location. It was mandatory they had to watch where they placed each step while walking as the grip seemed almost nonexistent. Seon was worried after a couple near misses, but was reassured by his handler each time; perseverance was vital for this task as they were so close now that quitting was nonexistent to the lilac tokota. They kept up with fast pace Seon had eagerly set, with the flat ground to be encountered shortly, it was guaranteed to accelerate. It had seemed like the journey was the most laborious task of all, once they locate the Soul Pool it would soon be over, the quest for dominance would be complete. Daylight was burning, but it moved along with the progress of the duo on the hunt for the pool where they had heard legends on the glistening water, hidden in The White Forest it was going to be a challenge in itself to even locate it. Wylde was tiring with sore feet but soldiered on strongly beside his companion as he didn't want Seon to learn of his exhaustion due to his thoughts thinking it would delay them.

Before they even knew it, the Soul Pool was directly in front of them. Seon had trusted his gut feeling while navigating The White Forest where the endless rows of trees were almost identical; it had almost seemed as if Aippaq was leading them. The cave was quite obvious now that the handler stopped and observed the opening. The moment of truth was just ahead as the mythical waters was glistening in front of Wylde and Seon. Overthinking was what began to occur in the mind of the lilac as he started to hobble his way nearing the liquid, the toko was wondering what happens if it goes wrong such as no soul animal appearing or if he even had a soul animal. Wylde could already predict what his tokota was doing in which he was quick to give him encouragement. Intimidated by the pure blue water, he glanced back questioning how much water to drink or if that is what determines the soul animal. Seon had finally taken the leapt of faith and began to drink the Soul Pool water. It seemed to take an eternity for there to be a reaction but both the two males agreed it was undoubtedly extravagant with the water roaring up to the air above and twisting itself in order to form an animal. Quickly it created the figure of a wolf; it stood idly while the water rotated around in the air, while the duo was admiring the soul animal they noticed it began to howl. Despite it being silent Seon felt as if he was able to hear the sound of the wolf in the distance to the point it was almost inaudible. Once the full rotation was complete, instantaneously the water dropped as gravity took control with a slight splash of the water against the brown rocks that supported the Soul Pool. Like that the once in a lifetime event was over and done with, they began to exit the cave which led to Seon repeating the events that occurred in front of his own eyes moments ago trying to process it all. A wolf, it was slightly unexpected, but he accepted it quickly. With the tokota being heavy in thought he was unaware of who was awaiting him outside of the cage and in the White Forest, only until Wylde spoke up did he noticed that standing right in his way was a wolf with gleaming eyes looking at Seon. The wolf stared at pair while they returned the look, this was indeed not what the shaman explained for the events that would happen.

The pleasant weather was encouraging Aideen to get out and about with a team of tokotas on an exploration trip, she had recovered from an illness and was more than eager to leave her property for once. She almost ran out the door to go grab three tokotas to spend the day with, she snatched some ropes and glided her way towards the pens that held the restless creatures in, glancing at the two dires, Punk and Sierra who both returned the look. She just knew that she had to take them out as they deserved a good outing and runaround, over to her tokotas she instantly selected Astralis to be her mount today as the long mane had arrived on the property but the handler never got the chance to take him out anywhere. With a rope around the three tokotas, she hurried along to get the shortest toko out of the three saddled up and ready to go. The last checks of the tack were done, and Astralis now had a saddle on his back, he had only gone on small rides by the handler's cousin in the large paddock it was going to be a challenge today to keep him from being anywhere but the lead. Hopping on the girl felt tiny when compared to Punk and Sierra, the black dire was right up beside the short male long mane who felt somewhat threatened by the two female tokos but still was making conversation with them to learn more so he could find some weak points to be able to get all the best items out of the group. The handler pointed them in the of the foothills that had a variety of flowers spread across it, as it was spring they may as well go off and enjoy it as the clear sky was out above them, they kept at a walk for the meanwhile as they made their way over to the destination. Everything was peaceful; it was not what Aideen had remembered from her previous outing with Sierra and Punk, she knew that any moment now that they were going to go off after all the pent up energy that they have built up, between the two of them they could send a rocket to the moon. She was correct as they decided to bolt off well ahead of the brunette and Astralis who was almost stunned by the sudden change in the two dires attitudes as he was unaware of how troublesome they could be. Instinct kicked in for the only male of the group; he took off as fast as he could not wanting to be left behind in the dust of the two other tokotas, he was desperate to show himself that he was faster than them despite the advantage they had with their long dires limbs. Aideen wasn't surprised at this behaviour as she knew how the long mane would turn almost anything into a competition and he doesn't take losing well, but past all of that, he also is friendly and never seems to hold a grudge.  

Punk was well in the lead as Sierra was adding her style points to this race as she kicks out with her back legs while at a neck breaking speed, Aideen was concerned for the tawny toko but she knew that despite the amount of spunk she has, Sierra was somewhat responsible and wouldn't do anything too idiotic which made the handler relax for a few moments until she had a bit of a hairy moment with Astralis as he decided he'd go up a gear of speed that his rider was unaware he could go this fast. The girl had watched him run in the big paddock, but this was something else that was making the brunette focus hard on remaining balanced, the exploration was quite the challenge, and they were quickly approaching at the foothills. At such speeds that Punk was travelling at it was safe to say the black dire was the clear winner of this race but the effort put in by Astralis who floored it entirely was impressive as he caught up to Sierra. Once they had all arrived at the flowery hillside, the shorter of the female dires was licking her large paws as if she was asking what took them so long. The long mane rolled his eyes as he didn't like a sore winner, he was extra determined to find the most items while they scanned the area, he had forgotten completely to look around while he made his way over to the location but he just hoped that Aideen didn't mind that where he'd try to make it up here. Sierra waited around for a few minutes until she could start up again with a hiss and a roar, Punk quickly followed suit as they ran off in the direction of uphill where they'd roam for the next hour or so, on the search for objects that are intriguing enough to bring home. All the flowers graced the hills in multiple colours; if only the girl had her camera with her, she'd be able to bring back some lovely photos along with some other items she hopes. Astralis was going slower than the two dires who were prancing at the top as both knew that is the opposite of their objective on this exploration, but that was just how Punk rolls, with the other dire following her actions for the fun of it all. The brunette girl knew it was futile to even bother rounding up the two dires as they were too stubborn, she just got to take it all in as her mount was hard at work doing his best cause he didn't win the previous challenge, so the male toko was going to redeem himself.

Time flew for the handler and Astralis, on the other hand, Punk and Sierra thought it would be a marvellous idea to take a nap amongst the flowers, but they couldn't hide as they were too big. As the tawny dire awoken from her rest, she quickly came to the realisation that they had a job to do, waking up her fellow tokota so both can promptly snatch something so they can put up an argument that the duo was doing the task at hand. The exploration team all regrouped somehow at where they initially started, Astralis was quite pleased with himself as he also had the time to swiftly collect a bunch of flowers for his hand to keep at home which impressed Aideen but knew that she'd need to clean off the tokota slobber. A smug looking pair of dires had a couple themselves to look like they had been busy bees, which was not what the brunette saw but didn't plan to mention it to let them have their moment. They now arranged to return to the girl's property where they could rest up until their next outing, Astralis was quite puffed after his big stretch out considering he only did some light work before this. With the two dires already regaining their energy as they shifted on the spot eager for another run home, the long mane was going to get used to this behaviour pretty quickly; thankfully he was already satisfied with his efforts for exploring the foothills.

It had just seemed like the average day for the tawny dun tokota who had Aideen sitting on her back having a walk around the Anirniit Valley wandering around the place observing their surroundings and taking it all in, it was just like any other day to them despite they have had some interesting weather conditions of a wind that occurred out of nowhere. The wind was strong as Dawn somewhat struggled to walk around in the harsh breeze, she had to use the strength in her body to push her way through it while the handler was shielding her eyes away from the gust making sure nothing decided her fly up into her face, the sky had a dark look upon it with clouds that were creeping into places they weren't prior to this outing for the dun toko. The Anirniit Valley was quite an intriguing place with small caverns lurking within the valley which made Aideen take back control of the tokota in search of some shelter away from this breeze, it was quite difficult to see for some peculiar reason but this wasn't across Dawn's mind as she was placing her trust into her rider as well as her senses to be able to take cover before she ends up blind from all the dust that was trying to crawl into her eyes which she didn't appreciate one bit. The two were left to scan around seeing if in the incline of the hills there would be a gradual opening to fit the duo in that would protect from such harsh winds that they currently were stuck in the middle of that, both struggle to feel their way as the dust has scattered everywhere, the behaviour of the weather was quite foul and for it to happen in the valley it was bizzare as Dawn headed her way as she could feel the ground being whisked away as she marched forwards trying to keep an eye out for the shelter she desired. They were not having much luck as the gust didn't look like it was willing to slow down for them at all, with only a limited sight they tried to find small gaps within the hill, but all were way too little that they'd never be able to fit both Dawn and Aideen in it. It seemed like time was just being wasted away as their attempts looked to be futile, Dawn was much too determined to find somewhere regardless how bad the weather was going to be, but she knew it would be a handy spot to know about if this ever happened again.

Dawn was given full control as Aideen was not able to direct her around anymore as she was too occupied shielding herself from the winds that seem to get worse each minute, the dun tokota took charge allowing the handler to do what she had to while having her mount on the lookout. A strange blue and green aura seemed to catch the eyes of the tokota, it had reminded her of the northern lights that had intrigued the toko, her gut was telling her to follow after it, and so she did. The girl had not noticed the aura that created a trail as she had her head buried in the hunter green hoodie she wore as it shielded her eyes away from the harsh breeze that was stirring. As the dun followed after the trail she had an odd feeling in her stomach, almost like nerves but she knew that something was going to happen soon which made her alert while also focusing on the mystic looking aura leading the way. Dawn knew it meant something as she had found an old cave hidden amongst Aniriit Valley, she found the size perfect for them with room to spare as well, once entered Aideen immediately dismounted the tokota and began to inspect the surroundings to confirm that it wasn't occupied by other creatures. It was clear besides the fact the handler was slightly intimidated by the skeleton of what she assumes to be a wolf. All Dawn was watching was the bones of the deceased wolf, it was almost like she was waiting for it to jump at her, Aideen gave her a look but was too busy focusing on the weather outside just to check if any rain or worse was coming their way yet it was too hard to tell with the dust being kicked up it acted as a blockage to the opening of the dark cave almost. A torch that the brunette always brings with her was the only light source they were able to see what lurked in the compact area. It felt that the dup had been in this cave for hours when in reality it was just five minutes, eventually, Dawn had stopped studying the wolf skeleton, this was when it all happened. The blue and green aura had come back to the dun tokota she knew that her instincts were telling her to follow the short trail that was leading back to the wolf bones that were resting on the ground. She spectated quietly as the aura was seeping into the bones at a rapid speed which Aideen noticed as she flicked her head around to look at Dawn, she walked over cautiously to see what the fuss was all about with the aura glowing stronger than it had been. Watching on as the green and blue trail was about to disappear all into the remains of the wolf it rose above them in the air and displayed what appeared to be an outline of the wolf. The two sat there glancing at each other as they attempted to process was had just happened in front of their eyes, the valley was quite a sacred area as the elders shared stories of how Anirniit Valley was like a cemetery of untimely deaths. For them to see what the gods of Tokotna could really do was mesmerizing for the duo, they waited on to see what else was going to happen as the aura fused together ridding the spirit of transparency as the wolf made a thud as it lept down to the ground.

Once the thoughts in the minds of Aideen and Dawn had settled they decided to move cautiously around the wolf unsure if it was hostile as all they had done so far was standing still and observing the creature, quietly Dawn was brave enough to sniff the solid green and blue wolf that was staring blankly with its eyes where the aura was still floating out of the sockets into the air. Only then was when Aideen had clicked to this odd situation after remembering what elders have told her in her younger days, once a tokota is deemed worthy it will meet its spirit animal in a mystical aura. "Congratulations Dawn, it's ya spirit animal!" The girl cheers as she strokes the dun mane as they were now oblivious to how dreadful the weather was in Aniriit Valley, the cave kept them busy enough with the wolf spirit nuzzling up to it's chosen toko. With the handler backing off to let them bond together Dawn was still inspecting the wolf spirit that was looking up at her with a wagging tail like a puppy, she was left to her own interpretations of this situation if this creature was going to be her friend or if she wishes to abandon it back to its bones that still rest on the cold ground they stand on. The tokota did feel as though she clicked with the spirit animal, she couldn't see any signs as they just glanced at each other like they were a puzzle figuring the other out but something told Dawn that deep down in her gut this occasion was meant to happen. This unforgettable moment was going to like with the dun tokota forever as it was always a significant milestone in a tokota's life as the elders have deemed them worthy of this experience which Dawn was very aware that some would never be able to get to this point she was extremely proud of herself once Aideen began to explain this once in a lifetime occurrence. As they interacted with each other the brunette handler begun to notice a change in the weather once again, rain was falling lightly on the floor of the valley outside with not a hint of wind anywhere. The duo both knew that this was a plan by Aippaq to lure Dawn to her spirit animal, the wolf now here they were in this moment as the dun bonded with the spirit. The tokota eventually knew that she had to move on despite not wanting to leave, there were things to do and places to be, Aideen knew that this tokota doesn't tie down to anything which led the handler to begin sort herself out before she'd remount and carry on with their journey through Aniriit Valley. The remaining of the trip would be also cut short due to this rain as neither were prepared for it, it was just now to sort themselves to leave behind the spirit of this wolf and focus back into reality as it had all just seemed like a dream to Dawn. She could tell that her spirit animal knew it was time for departing, without hesitation it slowly began back to its floating state in the air where it became disfigured until it crept all the way down to the bones where it was resting peacefully. There was no looking back now, the handler kept her hoodie over her head as the rain was getting heavier, mounting on Dawn they began to head back in the direction of home, if they can even remember where they were as the dust from before made them blind to their surroundings. As they headed out and walked in the rain slowly they noticed something looking up at them in the distance, the two make their way over and to their surprise, they see a small wolf who appeared as if they were waiting for Dawn and Aideen to meet with them. The dun followed the wolf as it strutted its way around Aniriit Valley, it was then that Aideen had clicked onto some familiar locations, thanking the wolf they were expecting it to trot off back home but instead, it decided it was time to be the follower. They had managed to get a lot more out of their day than both had originally expected, Dawn was thinking about this as she made her way home with the addition of her new found friend.
