Biting the Hand: Aiko's Adventure
    “Biting the Hand: Aiko’s Adventure”
    Story by Sokolva
     Holiday Gift Eskchange for Aiko 828!  
owned by SpiritWindz :iconSpiritwindz:
    The day her creator, Aevre, disappeared, Aiko was following an arctic fox that was hunting for mice. The fox turned her head from side to side, listening to the soft scratching sounds of the small creatures beneath the snow and the frozen earth. Then she would leap high in the air, arching gracefully, and land headfirst and jaw first in the unsuspecting rodents meticulous burrow, snapping them up. She was aging, but very skilled, so practiced at her hunting that she was a joy to watch. Aiko bounded beside her eagerly, her long, brawny body rippling over the surface of the snow. When the fox leapt, she leapt too, and landed face down into the snow, her long body flaili

Esk: Murkhail 1719 & Niv 1454
Murkail
Murkhail stood on the windy shores of the southern pole, the first time he had ever set foot here. He had left Russia and simply started swimming, swimming downward, wondering what he would find; all the marvels he’d read about and heard mentioned of the undiscovered southern regions and poles when he was human had burned in his mind, driving him onward, desperate to explore, to see more after so many years in Russia, in his vast but isolated boundary. He’d had to pass through the temperate, horribly warm part of the sea, where there were times his strength was so sapped from being so far from his boundary that all he could do was float, lifeless and exhausted, for days on end, letting the currents drag and push him about as he wished. Yet everywhere he went, there were spirits like him; other Esk that raced and darted through the ocean, joyful and at home. He even saw

Murkhail Answering Questions #1Firnado's questions to Murkhail:
1. Where does Murk comes from?
2. What does it look like there?
3. What does Murk like to do there since he likes snow more than Fir does?
Murkhail watched as the birdlike esk Firnado used dolls made of leaves to act out his questions. He watched and listened to his friend’s emotions carefully until he understood, and then he sat back on his haunches and thought. Firnado’s leaves rustled softly in excitement, though there was no wind in the calm glass structure of the Conservatory’s main area. Murkhail’s two albatross familiars settled themselves beside each other in the spongy moss at his feet and nestled their beaks together, like two mates that had returned home to each other after years at sea. They hadn’t been able to manifest for a long time; Murkhail had been travelling through America’s mainland, far from his Polar Biome far too long, and had been too weak for them to appear until now, when he lay in the Conse

Unpolluted Stars: Aevre Tries to Tell 000 a Story
 
   Aevre rarely sat and thought, rarely rested and was still. There was always something better to do, always something that needed to be done, or something that could be done to prevent things from needing to be done in the future. Her broad paws, so adept at gliding over the snow despite her size and weight, carried her lightly and willingly. But today, Aevre's heart was heavy, and with it, her body felt heavy as well. Such was the danger of allowing one's heart to be too open, or of sitting to long, thinking to long, allowing sadness or doubt to settle into the inner places where only action and determination should live.
     But the Nameless one, most ancient and beloved grandmother of all Esk stood before her, her side shivering and translucent with exhaustion, and her large body that should have been imposing looked as though it were breaking apart in the light wind of the snow storm. Aevre felt grief in her heart as

Cold Waters: A One-Sided Conversation with Seventh
    The waters were still, moving so slowly that they barely seemed to trickle when it appeared, as though it had always been there but had only just become visible, its tall, creaking, spindly legs alighting on the surface of the water. It stood there, not walking robotically and evening as it often did, but just sitting, each of its feet pressed gently to the water’s surface, as though the contact with the water itself was what allowed it to exist. Another esk, this one larger and fuller, though with a fading, weakened form, stopped in its tracks and stood still, regarding the esk standing on the still, sluggish water of the slowly draining river.
    “I thought I might find you eventually, dear,” Nameless said, her voice weary but glad, keeping her distance from the tall, spindly esk. However, she didn’t hold back like other Esk did, out of fear of its enchantment, for it never affected her

Ikkit's Riddle 00I: The Riddle of the BloodfeatherWhen a blood feather is broken in a bird’s wing
it bleeds and bleeds endlessly.
It will quickly drain the bird of blood.
It cannot be staunched, cannot be stopped.
But pull that very same hollow feather out,
and the blood will cease immediately.
You think that is a riddle too, huh? Tee hee!

The Illusive Laughter of Nameless (Conservatory)Murkhail felt the soft, spongy mosses of the Conservatory's main courtyard squish wetly beneath his grippy fingers and toes, waterlogged with all the streams and rivers that ran their tracks all throughout the greenery, feeding and nurturing it. He didn't mind the wetness; in fact, it was yet another part of the Conservatory that reminded him of home. As always, he saw the immense form of the Grandmother of all esks, 000, or Nameless as others called her, surrounded by a small retinue of other esk. Some were immensely old, far older than he was. Others were young, having just been created and thrust into their new strange life and missions, and seeking guidance. They stared up at Nameless's immense form, soaked up her stories like the moss soaked up the water, spongy and impressionable, and eager to learn.
One of these young ones was a young esk that seemed as dainty and lovely as a newborn foal, or young deer, with slender, delicate limbs and blossoms that trailed from her belly, ches

The Illusive Laughter of Nameless (Conservatory)Murkhail felt the soft, spongy mosses of the Conservatory's main courtyard squish wetly beneath his grippy fingers and toes, waterlogged with all the streams and rivers that ran their tracks all throughout the greenery, feeding and nurturing it. He didn't mind the wetness; in fact, it was yet another part of the Conservatory that reminded him of home. As always, he saw the immense form of the Grandmother of all esks, 000, or Nameless as others called her, surrounded by a small retinue of other esk. Some were immensely old, far older than he was. Others were young, having just been created and thrust into their new strange life and missions, and seeking guidance. They stared up at Nameless's immense form, soaked up her stories like the moss soaked up the water, spongy and impressionable, and eager to learn.
One of these young ones was a young esk that seemed as dainty and lovely as a newborn foal, or young deer, with slender, delicate limbs and blossoms that trailed from her belly, ches

They had no rights and could be sent to war by their masters to serve in their stead, were bought and sold, the fruits of their labors were taken. They could also be taken as house slaves and servants by their "masters" and used for any purposes they wished without fear of scandal or reprisal.

Petrified-wood by Sokolva

Petrified Swamp Cypress
One of the oldest species of tree that was once spread
all across the continents of what became Russia and Asia
Highly adapted to living in swampy, waterlogged environments by evolving roots that reach upward
out of the water to air.


Images by Sokolva
Common Orange Lichen
Has been found to live up to 8000 years or more
Grows in the harshest environments, on living bark, dead trees, or stone.



Boundary: Yakutsk Stone Forest (Taiga environment; Siberia, Russia)

Covers an immense swathe of land in Northeast Siberia, from the snow covered mountains, to the swampy taigas, to the immense Stone Forest where he was first Transformed. The people and predatory creatures of Siberia range far and have immense territories, and so does Murkhail, but the center of his power is found in the Yakutsk stone forest.

Murkail
Murkhail stood on the windy shores of the southern pole, the first time he had ever set foot here. He had left Russia and simply started swimming, swimming downward, wondering what he would find; all the marvels he’d read about and heard mentioned of the undiscovered southern regions and poles when he was human had burned in his mind, driving him onward, desperate to explore, to see more after so many years in Russia, in his vast but isolated boundary. He’d had to pass through the temperate, horribly warm part of the sea, where there were times his strength was so sapped from being so far from his boundary that all he could do was float, lifeless and exhausted, for days on end, letting the currents drag and push him about as he wished. Yet everywhere he went, there were spirits like him; other Esk that raced and darted through the ocean, joyful and at home. He even saw

Murkhail Answering Questions #1Firnado's questions to Murkhail:
1. Where does Murk comes from?
2. What does it look like there?
3. What does Murk like to do there since he likes snow more than Fir does?
Murkhail watched as the birdlike esk Firnado used dolls made of leaves to act out his questions. He watched and listened to his friend’s emotions carefully until he understood, and then he sat back on his haunches and thought. Firnado’s leaves rustled softly in excitement, though there was no wind in the calm glass structure of the Conservatory’s main area. Murkhail’s two albatross familiars settled themselves beside each other in the spongy moss at his feet and nestled their beaks together, like two mates that had returned home to each other after years at sea. They hadn’t been able to manifest for a long time; Murkhail had been travelling through America’s mainland, far from his Polar Biome far too long, and had been too weak for them to appear until now, when he lay in the Conse

Spreading some love and happiness for 2019! Here are some guidelines:

1. Send this to 3 of your watchers.
2. Tell them something you really like about their art!
3. Make the compliment genuine...don't just say it because it's a rule!
4. Pick a friendly emoticon to give them!
5. Post it onto their page!
6. This doesn't only have to be on New Year's...let's keep this going for a while!


sorry if this is a bother

I really love how much detail you put in your art it makes it so much more personal!
