DotW: Belladonna's Fate - Part II
"Everyone up," Magnus spoke firmly. "Let's get this over with."
The sun had barely begun to turn the sky from blackness to powdery blue when the older male decided to rouse his traveling companions. He had not slept a wink that night and instead, stood guard outside their temporary densite as their Vektreni guest, Hellion, had decided to lurk about the area while they were gone. Like hell was he going to let him lie with the females of his group. It was true that Magnus didn't trust him, but the decision that Bella, Keeva, and Aydan had made the day before would not have allowed him to rest. Kill another and steal their heart? It went against everything he had stood for in his life.
His golden eyes watched the three females rise from the warmth of their sleeping spots. At first, he had refused to help for all the reasons that kept him awake that night. But looking upon their faces after they declared their decision to Hellion, he knew none o

Everything hurt. Her stomach mostly. The nausea had took control of her body and her abdomen was often shook by spams as her body tried to eliminate what was wrong in it. Make thought there might have been a lot of wrong things since she couldn’t keep down not even her own saliva. Her mouth was dry and the taste she felt inside was foul. Vomit mostly and bile probably.
Was it a small consolation to say that she wasn’t alone? It didn’t make the pain go away but at least Make knew there wasn’t something wrong with just her. Many of her Vektreni brothers and sisters were keeping her company in that secluded spot, away from those few lucky that were spared from this sickness.
Not that they were much company, each of them isolated to deal with their own body rebelling against them.
What had happened? Why
A Moment of Mourning || Ori and Levi [Dotw]Ori
The Ironhold reminded the silvery she-wolf much of Highvalley’s landscape, the rugged mountain tops were much more prominent in Highvalley but it gave her a sense of security that she much desired at that current moment of her life. The ocean blue clear eyes that were given to her by the goddess of the sea, gazed around her as her body slowly made its way towards Emerald Gorge. She had spent most of her day at the Seahaven, only the sounds of the rolling waves and seabirds as company. The sounds of the forest and plainlands, the sound of the breeze swishing through the long grass, which was now beginning to be flattened, engulfed by the cold white blanket once again.
Snow was not a good memory for Ori, grief was all it reminded her of. Pain that swallowed her heart, chewed it up and stomped on it for just that extra unnecessary bit of pain. Piercing her heart, allowing pain to seep into her core, starve her of content and happi
DotW RP: Bugged OutHellion & Zinnia
With the perfect amount of grace, Zin rolled down the hillside and tumbled onto her back into the grass. A round of sneezes followed as she scrambled to find her paws, looking just like an overturned beetle. She would have found the comparison quite amusing. Finally finding her legs, the gawky she-wolf shook out her fur and lifted her head, inspecting her surroundings briefly. She was not great with direction; Iscah was always in charge of where they were headed. But thanks to short-term memory Zinnia always managed to get back to her travel partner.
She sneezed again, lifting a paw to rub at her snout. Then she tottered forwards, back beneath the shelter of the woods. It was an old forest, creaky and gnarled, but she liked it. There were certainly plenty of bugs. Her pale golden eyes followed a scuttling insect on the closest tree limb for a moment.
Forbidden Shores Part 2 (Loki x Jerikoh x Shen)L O K I
Kyros’s summoning echoed eerily through the foggy woodland. The dark-furred soldier stalked forwards, deep-set eyes candescent in the gloom. Tension ran hot beneath his coat, mind running through countless presumptions. What had alarmed his beta? Was the pack’s security compromised? His brows knitted together in a heavy frown, stride quick and purposeful as he made for the border. Seamist wreathed amongst the trees and the tang of salt touched the roof of his mouth.
His nose twitched, taking in the surrounding scents as he picked his way through the familiar territory. Kyros’ trail tasted briefly against his tongue. The Astir slowed his pace, an unusual place for trouble to brew... He mused silently. The woodland cleared before him, the gentle rumble of crashing waves reverberating through his paws.
As he approached the shoreline, Loki angled his head downward, eyeing the sparse terrain shrewdly. His attentions were immediately d
Rendez-Vous (Enzo x Shenandoah)Shenandoah was browsing the nearby forest, searching for a specific wolf’s scent. It was not safe to spend too much time in one place, but Shen knew that it was close to the time, and they were close to the area, where she would meet up with Enzo again. Howling to announce her presence was what the plan had been. But even if there was no sign that Vektren were still chasing them, and Jerikoh and she in fact had every reason to expect that they had lost the pursuing wolves by now, Shenandoah was still very uncomfortable raising her voice too high. Since what if they were still pursuing… the stupidest thing of all would be broadcasting their location to the world. It could end her life.
So instead Shen scouted the area, staying alert for scents, hoping that if Enzo was approaching his scent would be blown toward her. She had been doing this for the the past many days, eager not to miss her meeting with her uncle, and hoping that he was okay.
She barely believed the sce
At Last (Bellamy x Shenandoah)Shen heaved out a sigh, feeling her paws sink into the soft sand as she made her way along the ocean surf. It was the end of a long and hot day, leaving the sand comfortably warm against her pads as the air cooled with the help of the ocean spray. Little misty showers were sent through the evening air by waves cascading upon the shore. It wasn’t uncommon for Shenandoah to split off from her group to go on walks, especially now that much of the Vektreni danger was likely passed, and even more especially since they were on the coast. The sea brought back a lot of memories for the dark cocoa she-wolf. Of her parents and Savoy among others in Vale, and then of… Bellamy. She thought about her loyal Good Fish quite often. She missed him so much it hurt. But the ocean helped. Well, it hurt because it made her think of him, but it helped too, for that very same reason. He was gone now… but he once loved her, and she loved him… she would sometimes grieve over the day she
DotW: AfflictionHe doesn't think much of it when he can't keep his breakfast down that morning. The rabbit was dead when he found it, and an easy meal is not something to be turned down in Vektren, especially in the winter. It didn't seem rotten to him- although, granted, his sense of smell leaves a lot to be desired; he supposes the meat may have been just a little too ripe after all, chalks it up to indigestion and goes about his business. There is work to be done. It's good to finally have a task... even if it wasn't the triumphant avalanche of praise he'd expected, stepping out of the Shrine with reddened paws, it's something to show for his efforts. He half wonders if the wolves who put him through the Trials went easy on him. Regardless, he has a job now, and a little thing like a stomachache isn't going to deter him.
Strange, though, that he should have found that rabbit dead, no signs of struggle or injury. Rabbits are fragile creatures, their hearts not even substantial enough for a pr
When I Needed Help The Most (Isla x Shen)Shenandoah
Shenandoah trotted along the outskirts of Vektren, just outside of the border. She was returning to Alar and their makeshift den after an unsuccessful hunting trip. She was getting better and better at hunting, but being a lone wolf, there were still days when she came back empty-pawed. She was moving rather quickly, though with heavy steps (grace had never been her strong suit). She was tired, but eager to get home.
Or her makeshift home, anyway. A choice would need to be made about that, and soon, Shen knew. Now that Alar had recovered, the days she felt comfortable living so close to a pack they were not a part of were waning. But there was an alternative to leaving… staying. She had yet to discuss it was Alar, but Hekate had offered her a place among the ranks of Vektren, in honor of her late father. She knew Hekate would extend the offer to Alar too if Shen asked (or at least, she believed so), but she just didn’t know if she wanted to. The Vek
CC: Questions Existing
Morgana took some interest in Onyr’s newest member, Lance. Unlike most members, Lance had a strong belief in god right from the start. He may have been educated in a different way, knowing god under a different name, with different traditions, but he believed in a higher power, while most members had to even be convinced god existed. She had beeen observing him for a while, studying his nature and how he adapted to the pack. His past did indeed interest her, but her watchful routine was more of a habit than pure interest.
The alphess approached the brown wolf, announcing her presence with a phrase she used to hear a lot in her childhood. “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe.” Once she had the male's attention, she asked with a graceful smile. “How are you enjoying your new life, Lance?”
The male wolf rarely stopped by the den-area; sleeping there was
He had watched the scene for some time, but the moment the pair embraced Luca finally turned his back on them, his heart clenched with a flurry of emotions he could not understand. He knew the feeling of loss, and indeed he had lost a good investment in Raphael. At least that's what he should've been feeling, but the anguish was more than just losing out on a good deal. It was losing a friend, the first and maybe only one Luca could say he had in his life.
A friend who he had started to see a different way... It was complicated for him.
Above his head Proud cawed and began to circle. Luca looked up. There was food nearby? The bird cawed louder and louder before disappearing out of sight. Weird... he thought, standing in place and looking over his shoulder. No food. Where had the bird gone?
Raphael felt his heart filled with bitter sweetness but more so even giddy. He was finding Luca , it was all that
CC RP - No More Running
The brown Protector felt a bit nervous as he and his mate walked through the den-area. They had decided it was time to finally talk to Lou about what was between the three of them. They would have done it earlier, but with his father's passing it was just too much … but he had taken his time to grieve, and time slowly made it hurt less, and it helped to have his remaining family and his mate to support him in the tough times. It only made more love seem even better, as if you couldn’t get a big enough family to hold you and support you.
He shortly glanced at his handsome mate while they walked side by side, wondering if he was nervous too. He hoped Louisa wouldn’t get freaked out by what they - or rather Corvus - was gonna say. Hopefully it wouldn’t be too much to take in for her, but he couldn’t help but worry about her reaction.
Things hadn’t been going according to plan. After Corvus
Lost | Demetrius X SiriLittle message here:
This took place when Siri and Demetrius were juveniles and around the time the sickness in Veda was still around.
It had been a few days since Siri saw her large, extended family in Veda. In fear of becoming sick, her mother decided to take her and her siblings away to minimize the sickness. So here she was in the new lands of a pack called Onyr. The smells and environment was quite different from what she was used to though it could probably be moreso attributed to the new wolves. The pack was no doubt smaller than Veda but had more wolves that seemed roughly her age.
While roaming the lands to better familiarize herself it seemed as though...she is lost. She looked around herself and could not find a single landmark that would lead her back to the pack's main den area. With a heavy sigh she began to wander even more. Just when she was about to sit down and think of a plan to get bac
Sisterly Bonding | Thora X SiriLittle message here:
This took place when Siri and Thora were juveniles and around the time the sickness in Veda was still around.
Thora watches silently, observing the wolves of Onyr at work from her perch upon a flat rock. This place was...interesting to say the least. She'd expected the novelty to have worn off by now, but surprisingly she found the place to hold a certain...charm.
Movement out of the corner of her eye suddenly catches her attention, and Thora turns her head to see her one and only sister, Siri's dark pelt easily recognizable amongst the others. Sliding from her little spot upon the rock, Thora begins to pad over nonchalantly, figuring a talk with her sister wouldn't be so unbearable...At least she was better than a certain someone she knew.
After shaking off a small power nap, Siri began to walk away
[CC] Under The Stars
Luca's heart pounded rapidly in his chest as he tracked down Raphael, trying to go over what he was going to say and what he was doing in his mind. In his teeth were two eagle feathers, taken from their recent catch. Though he couldn't say it out loud, he was grateful for Inara joining their group, for it meant getting easier catches. That and she could occupy the pups so that he and the other male could have a quiet moment.
It took him a while, but he finally found Raphael stargazing. The sight was perfect, with the moon high up and providing the perfect balance of light. It was so beautiful that it made Luca pause for a brief moment, wondering if he was doing this right. He and Raphael had talked about their feelings, true, and Luca had admitted he was not good with things like this.
But he had come to realize that he was comfortable being by Raphael's side. That having the other wolf as company was all he wanted. And he wanted to keep that for as long as he
CC RP - The Return
Nervous. That's what the male felt, as he walked onto Veda's soil once more. It had been so very long. So many things must have changed now. Had Cheyenne come back as well? Had she found someone she could have a life with? What about his silent brother, Delaware? Had he changed as well, had he found someone he could share his life with who could understand him? He hoped that their lives had gotten better. That... That perhaps him leaving had been a good thing. His parent's though... He was so worried about them, and he hoped beyond hope, that they wouldn't be too upset with him.
Crow's nervousness, turned to slight fear. He smelled so different now... He looked so different. Would any of them recognize him? Would they even let him come home? His ears flickers, his one eye cast down to his paws. He shut it tight, feeling ashamed, worthless, unforgivable. He had left his sister with Chanigah, but he knew it was no more. He was scared, but he had to face his fami
CC: Tessa and Corvus - Unwelcome
It was another day but it felt just as dark and gloomy as usual in her mind - maybe even more so. She hadn’t felt like eating this morning, she was too weighed down by feelings. For now she just sat alone near her den, reflecting over her thoughts and feelings, not yet able to go do something productive.
It felt as if everyone was leaving her, members, her counselor, her children … She had just gotten Crow back but now Cherokee had disappeared out of nowhere … just like her sister. It wasn’t exactly what she needed after losing Isaiah. To make it even worse her grandchildren were starting to leave as well, she was a bit annoyed at Chey for letting Siri and Asger go join Onyr, without even consulting her about it, and when they’d already lost Jerrik during their stay in Onyr. He wasn’t the best kid, but he was still family …
She let out a deep sigh, and tried to wrap her head around what she did wrong, what did s
CC: New Friendship
The blue male was doing something unusual today: walking on his own. After all the recent events, he distanced himself from everyone and tried to put his thoughts together. He travelled with his mother and siblings to another pack, Onyr, and even though they stood there for some time, he didn’t really get to know the place, or its members. His brother Jerrik disappeared. Despite bullying him all the time, Loki didn’t want to see it happening. What if his brother was lost of hurt anywhere? They returned to Veda, without him. His grandfather passed. Even though he never got really close to him, it was clear that his mother was upset, and so the rest of the family. He didn’t want to see his mother like that. Everything filled him with frustration, the feeling that he was useless domineering more and more. Shaking his head, he started to murmur a story to himself. Fleeing from reality. “...his mother was in danger, but his father
CC | RolePlay | Trying to give a smile
With aging of life, responsibilities arrive. Yet, Loki thought he wasn’t ready… to age, to have responsibilities. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to do anything for the pack, it was that he couldn’t do anything at all. He looked up to his mother, aunt Louisa, uncle Corvus… but he could never be like any of them. He wasn’t strong, he wasn’t skilled, nor confident. And he didn’t know how he could ever be better.
Loki walked with his head down, it seemed most wolves were out fulfilling their duties. And what was he doing? Nothing. He wanted to accompany someone, but at the same time, he didn’t want to be a burden and get in their way. Some of his siblings constantly reminded he did that. His countenance changed when Louisa approached, and he tried to force a faint smile to greet the silver she-wolf.
