LOC: Blood Stained Ground
    "Don't go too far kids." Tadao called after the group of six. His four precious cubs and his young in-laws ran off ahead. Tatsu and Seika were adolescents now and would soon be adults where as Michiko, Shizu, Zoreza, and Khanjar were just old enough to start playing.
    "We don't have to listen to you old man!" Tatsu called out behind him with Seika laughing by his side. Tadao sighed as the cubs ran towards a rocky outcrop and started to vanish around the corner, only slowing down to make sure they all stuck together.
    "I'll keep an eye on them, no worries 'Old Man'." Yitma chuckled as he trotted off ahead. Tadao often wondered why he ever stuck around, but when he looked at the little striped cubs vanishing around the corner he smiles and knew exactly why he had stayed. He sped up to a trot to catch up to the group, not wanting to get too far behind that he lost them. Luckily seeing Yitma vanish around the corner was comforting as h

Z-99: Week 3, Prompts 1+3
Prompt 1; Harbinger - Male - Pride Healer - Earth and Life
    Harbinger stared in horror as the survivors made their return to the Pride lands. He had heard from those who ran ahead that things were bad but he was in total shock by what he saw. He has expected to be busier, to be rushing to save more lives but they had lost more then they would be saving today. He felt a searing pain tearing at his chest as realization sunk in. The lions that escaped were no normal lions, they were monsters. With a deep breathe he calmed his angry soul and raced into the fray, as lions swarmed around seeking the attention of healers or crying for loved ones. He knew he would not have the necessary energy to heal them all and had to resort to herbs for many of the minor injuries, saving as much energy as he could for those who needed it most. He raced from li

Z-99: Week 2, Prompts 1,2,3
Prompt 1; Malaika - Female - Nomad - Ice and Water
I would probably react in awe and then terror. Such a thing would be fascinating to behold but these lions are prisoners and criminals, after being imprisoned for who knows how long there is no doubt that many would want to see the guards or warriors who put them there dead and gone. As someone to witness such a thing that would make me a target, or so I would think. Not to mention the change in these lions. My mother has gotten more aggressive in the last little bit, if that says anything then these lions may have been more drastically changed or changed in different ways then her, making them even more unpredictable and potentially even more dangerous.
I would worry about these lions and the sudden change, it's no better then randomly coming back to life or randomly just coming into existence, if anything it is pr

Z-99: Week 1, Prompts 1+2
Prompt 1; Yasahiro - Male - Nomad - Telepathy and Light
    I was surprised by the war when I first heard of it. I guess I grew up sheltered from the events of the pride, rebels, and anyone else in that area or related to these groups and the war itself. I didn't even hear about the pride, let alone the rebels, before meeting the girl of my dreams who has taught me so much and continues to teach me. It is sad to see so many fighting over petty reasons such as power. If we could all just see the good in others or realize life is more valuable then power then maybe this war would stop. The war saddens me, that is probably the best way to describe how I feel about the war, saddened. I wish to stay uninvolved in the war and just spend my time living peacefully with my girl, bond with her and make her happy.

Quest: I Hope This Ends...
Myth looked around in horror. One moment he had been sleeping next to his handler in a cave and now he was staring into the face of a giant dog-faced noodle. He yelped and jumped to his paws then his the ground hard as he tripped over his sleeping handler still wrapped in her sleeping back, the only thing that seemed normal in this entire situation.
"What in the world Myth!" Sakari sat up, shooting an annoyed and confused look at the merle. "Myth, there is nothing to panic about. This cave is perfectly safe and if you heard a noise it was probably you kicking a rock..." In her rant she had failed to notice the change of scenery and their extra companion that definitely did not seem real at first. "Where are we?"
"We'll you're in Fantasia." The dog-faced noodle spoke up making Myth shimmer back and hide behind his stunned handler. She was not normally easily stunned, but this was a whole new level of strange.

Hunt: Hisssss
The trio trotted through the park, looking around. The lakeside park had recently attracted flocks of Canadian geese. As much as they were beautiful, they were also causing all sorts of problems for park-goers. Parents had stopped bringing their children and were sending complaints of all kinds to those in charge of the park maintenance. The ads went out and they were searching for help to stabilize the number of geese at the park.
They stopped a little ways away and watched the geese that seemed to blanket the shore. Many of them were quiet, just laying around or sleeping in the shade of the trees as the afternoon sun shone overhead. It was a warm day and they did not seem too active, but the tokotas knew better then that. Elkay and Saeros joined Norori, sitting down next to him as they made their plan of attack. The aggressive birds seemed quite tame and Saeros tilted her head as she watched them. Elkay seemed to be counting them as he waited for the other two, trying to figure out a

Tracking (LP): Rouge Moose
Radoslav eyed the moose as it dipped it's muzzle into the water. He hid among the thick underbrush lining the body of water and waited patiently for a moment as he psyched himself up to pounce. His prey was actually taller then him, though not by much, it still proved a challenge. He eyed the large racks nervously, wondering how much those would hurt if the moose were to charge him.
Two more pairs of eyes watched the moose eagerly, waiting for the right moments to strike. Yonda was thinking about the coolest way to finish the hunt, making the kill with style. She looked around for anything to leap from, anything to hide in, anything that would make her hunt far more interesting. No one may have been watching, but she wanted it to be creative and fascinating anyways.
Eryn stalked around the body of water, sticking to the thick underbrush that cluttered the forest floor. She was trying to decide how to move forward, how to strike most efficiently. The moose lifted its head and scanned ar

Quest: Did You Hear?
"So you want to travel all the way to the Village of Hearth just to see this mysterious thing everyone is talking about?" Svana shot Beowulf a quizzical look. "That is a long ways to go just to see something that might not be there." She added. She wasn't sure about turning back. They had been heading in the other direction, exploring Ulfrheim as thoroughly as they could, but this strange sighting peaked Wulf's interest enough to want to send him flying back in the other direction just to see for himself.
"We should see it with our own eyes. Check it out for ourselves. That is exactly why we should turn back to check it out. Blindly calling this news true or false would be foolish." Beowulf felt bad for making them turn back to check out these rumors, but he wanted to be one of the first to go and confirm the news stretching across the island like wildfire.
They changed their course and traveled the trails back towards the village on the shore. The ghostly ships could be seen as they a

Fishing: A Slithering Surprise
They trotted over the hill and towards the lake surrounded by tundra. It was a man made lake and not very deep, but it had some fish in it. They thought the water would also be refreshing, but with the warmth of the summer day and the shallowness of the lake it was not as cold as they thought it would be. As they reached the shores they placed down the tightly woven baskets they had carried in their mouths. Each one would carry about ten medium sized fish.
Norori glanced up at the unhindered sky, disappointed by the lack of shade as the cloud was mostly clear, only a couple fluffy white clouds seemed to slowly float across the sky. He sighed and stepped into the water, only to be double disappointed that the water was actually warm, not providing much comfort from the summer sun that blazed down upon them. Elkay and Saeros were also not impressed with the temperature of the water. Their thicker coats making the summer heat even more intense for them then for the short maned dire.

Inugami x Aberdeen
Aberdeen found it was too hot to join the other tokotas in their wrestling and play-fighting. She watched from the treeline for a while before turning around and heading into the thick shade of the forest behind her. She hunted instead for the victory of finding a cool place to nap, not the victory of a game. The thick canopy provided shade from the sun above, unhindered by clouds as there was not a single one to be seen.
Inugami wandered through the forest. He had just eaten and was in no hurry to get anywhere. He just casually strolled through the shade of the forest as the sun reached its peak in the sky. His thick fur was more of a hindrance then a help on days like this. He sighed as rounded a corner and soon found his face hit the dirt and a yelp sounded in his ear.
Brown eyes met fur as Inugami and Aberdeen stared at each other. The yeti had been sleeping in the shade of the tree, not expecting to be tripped over by some strange tokota. Inugami could say similarly, minding his o

Hunt: Gobble Gobble Gobble
The trio was stationed in the field, watching for signs of the troublesome critters driving the poor farmer up the wall. The farmer had been trying to get rid of the wild turkeys as they kept going after his wheat, but his attempts had been in vain. The turkeys kept returning and he eventually put up an ad asking for some hunters to come to his farm to hunt the troublesome birds. Saeros, Elkay, and Norori were brought in to help. They sat in the field, waiting for the birds to return, holding still like statues as they patiently watched for where they might be hiding. The mostly grown wheat was pretty tall already, making it easy for the turkeys to hide and scurry through. It would be impossible to tell how many turkeys could be hiding within the crop.
"Get away from my crops!" The farmer had been yelling as the commissioned group approached. He was running through the fields with a rake, chasing after birds that appeared, disappeared, and reappeared from among the partially grown crop

Quest: Helping The Pirates?
Shallyaa had not been expecting anything interesting to happen that day. As she took Katya and Wick out to a field near the ocean to work on liberty and obedience training, though much of it looked like a dance. At least it looked like a dance when Shallyaa and Katya practiced. Wick was not as practiced as the elegant long maned tokota. Wick would stop and stare in confusion at Shallyaa's hands when she did not understand the signal, and she stumbled on word commands she was still learning. Shallyaa was mainly out there to practice and train with Wick. The day was slightly cloudy and a decently strong wind tugged at the figures in the field.
She now stood behind her tokotas, Katya growling and ready to strike, Wick was frozen and staring intensely, wearily, at the intimidating figures before them. The ship had come out of nowhere it seemed and a few of the ship's crew rowed to shore on a small boat. Shallyaa stopped and froze. She was tempted to hop up on Katya's back and take off, not

Tracking (SP): Raccoon Rumble
"So what are we looking for today?" Bastille asked, looking from her father to Vurdem, bouncing along to keep up with the older Felvargs.
"To be honest, we are not sure. We are just looking to see what we find, tracking fresh scents in hopes of a good catch." Vurdem replied. Locarian nodded in agreement. They periodically stopped to sniff the air in search of prey. Bastille tried to copy them, though she was not entirely sure what was fresh and what was stale, she was still trying to just distinguish the scents in her head first. She tried following one of the trails and didn't even notice the adults following her as she weaved through the trees, wondering if she was on to something or not. Vurdem chuckled and Locarian grinned as they followed in amusement, letting the pup attempt to track. The trail she picked led her to a small dirt tunnel among the roots of a tree. She peaked in, sticking her head in as far as it would go without getting stuck in the earthy space.

Tracking (SP): Not So Sleepy Sheep
"What are we going to hunt?!" Bastille bounced around the two adults as they trotted along through fields and over hills.
"You need to whisper Little Bee. They might hear you." Locarian chuckled at her excitement. She quickly shut her mouth and nodded, though she soon opened her mouth again to asked another question, this time more quietly.
"Are we that close to our prey already?" She looked around trying to spot whatever it was they were after, but she did not see anything as they reached the next hill and started to climb the easy grassy slope.
"Almost, we can smell them, but not yet see them." Vurdem answered her question.
"What are we smelling?" She asked. The scent she picked up was different, but she could not place an image to the scent, or a name. She kept drawing blanks as she went over the list of creatures she knew the scents for and none of them seemed to be what they were going after. She wrinkled her face as she tried to think and it eventually molded into a pouty face, m

Tracking (SP): Down The Rabbit Hole
"Alright, so firstly, you must be very quiet." Locarian whispered to his daughter. Bastille looked up at him eagerly, excited to be taken on a tracking expedition by her father. Vurdem tagged along to help out and to watch, though he also loved to give tips.
"And stay low, the less they see of you the better." Vurdem added.
"True, and stay downwind of your target." Bastille tilted her head in confusion at her father's last sentence.
"What does it mean to stay downwind?" She asked, looking from one male to the other.
"You know how you can smell the rabbits on the wind?" Vurdem asked, receiving a nod from the pup. "That is because they are upwind from us. We are currently downwind. Being downwind allows us to smell them, but they can't smell us." She seemed to have a look of realization on her face.
"So if we stay downwind we can hide better?" Bastille wanted to confirm.
"Correct! Though that does not mean they won't hear you or see you once you get closer." Locarian replied.

Adventure: The Crystal Caves
"So we are going to a cave?" Bastille looked to her father and Vurdem. She did not seem impressed by the idea, after seeing multiple caves she was not expecting much and was not all too excited to see the cave.
"Yes, but this is not just any cave." Vurdem grinned. He seemed excited to be sharing something with the father and daughter pair, hoping to turn it into a fun adventure for the trio. He trotted along with a skip in his step.
"I hope this is actually as cool as you claim it is Vurdem." Locarian lifted a brow and still seemed skeptical of the other Felvarg's claims.
"You've never been there daddy?" Bastille seemed stunned by the thought and looked at her father in awe. A place her father didn't know about, now that seemed a little more interesting then it had before.
"I have not Little Bee. This was all Vurdem's idea." Locarian replied, flicking his head to the side to emphasize it was all Vurdem's idea. Bastille looked from her brute of a father to the much smaller male, though

Hello, my name is Naranda.
I am a University student currently going after my BA in Englsh.
I love writing and reading. I mostly prefer fantasy and sci-fi in terms of genres. I like music, folding origami, baking cookies, and also occasionally playing video games. I occasionally role-play but I prefer 1x1 RPs and mostly only character relationships with the intention of them becoming or already being canon.
I love my characters a lot and probably spend way too much time developing or even just coding their pages or thinking of ideas for them.
