The election results had come in- Lyrica had won the position of Arisen. She had been shocked at first- her, an Arisen? She didn't think that enough people would support her! But something had come through- fate, destiny- whatever it was, she was grateful. She wanted to help make a difference for the Kawaru, to fight back against the injustices done by the Umare. While it had not affected her, she saw how thin some of the Kawaru were, living in houses made of tin and wood scraps, and existing on, seemingly, pure stubbornness alone. She hated that the Umare saw them as lesser, and gave them so little to survive on. They lived in the Labyri
Goddesses, this costume had taken forever.
Kelby stared at the finished costume, one that had taken hours of work. She had heard of the tale of Icarus, who had flown too high on waxen wings and crashed back down to Kaia's earth. It seemed to fit where they were at the moment, and when they had heard of the costume party in the darkened Silverpine, they knew what they needed to dress up as.
The largest part was, by far, the wings. Made of wood, river cane, and metal, the frame showed wings extended upwards, as if trapped mid-flight. She had spent hours collecting the feathers to use on the wings, which had, in turn, taken hours t
TW: Death, violence, slight gore
"Come, Adari," Mama whispered to her. "Master Kaveh has asked for tea in the parlor before he goes to see the fighting at the pits. Put on your bridle, now, and we will go to the kitchen."
Grumbling, she woke from a nap as Mama's pretty white swan wings rustled back from her sleepy form, brushing against her flanks. She sighed, pinning her ears back. "Do I have to, Mama?" she whined, snarling at the thought of serving the white unicorn his tea. He always wanted to look in her mouth, measure her, ask her questions, when all she wanted to do was go and play with the other foals that she saw running
Flame. Smoke. Burning. Pain. Death.
Adari was shaken. The Kirins, the holiest of holy, were here, were resurrected.
And they wanted nothing but death.
She had watched the flames come rushing out of their mouths, the cruel smirks lighting up their faces, the holier-than-thou way in which they had dismissed her suffering and turned away from her band of freedom fighters. They were gone, leaving carnage in their wake. Sizzling sounds reached her ears, as did the horrible smell of burning hair, as the poorly-lit pyre caught once again.
Cries. Crackling. Irritation. Heat. Fear.
A scream fought its way from her throat, a cry containing the gri
TW: Physical Abuse (eff you, Brandr)
Kelby is a product of abuse from their father and a lack of recognition for their unique gender identity from their mothers (other than Mama- she would never do that to Kelby). Going through her training as a Valkyrie has helped somewhat, allowing her to take back the reins of control from her past in most situations, but some things still bother her. Seeing stallions abusing the power and privilege they have in War Forged society, as well as the calls to them from stallions about how they should be married and a mother, sometimes offering themselves as the position of their husba
A few days had passed since Meadow had left Arcene by the Brena border, and already she yearned for home. Her nest, the feeling of a completely full belly, of safety after the sun set, of paw pads that weren't sore. She had no idea where in the world she was, her paws taking her wherever they wanted. She walked during the day, stopping to hunt whenever her belly felt empty, climbing up a tree to sleep the night away. She had yet to see more than traces of other cats, a paw print here, a scent marking there, occasionally the remains of some dead prey, half-buried under the quickly-freezing dirt. The sun had long since reached its peak, and
The birds, from which her name derived, had long stopped singing when Meadowlark returned to the Nara camp, a fat squirrel in her mouth. She had maintained vigil on a hill overlooking Sunglow Lake as the sun had set, the oranges and pinks of sunset turning into the dark blues and purples of the night sky, her head lifted to the sun, her voice carrying out to her sister once the stars had appeared.
She did not think how this may be the last time she saw it.
Coming down from the hill, she had stalked some prey in the forest, taking down the fat squirrel and two mice. The mice had disappeared down her gullet, fuel for her last jour
