Borden Home

Bridget stands over to the side, slightly fidgeting nervously with her apron, and breathing a bit deeper than usual; she had just run around quite a bit after all. She glances over at Lizzie for a moment, before walking over.

"Lizzie, did you want me to get you anything? Tea or something else to drink?" Bridget asks a bit hesitantly, her tone comforting and gentle.

Subject: Eavesdropping


Sen nods, although Erihsehc cannot see her, and she slows down to better and fully inspect the two followers, as well as overhear anything they might be saying. She flies a bit higher, looking down upon the two, examining for metalic glints of weapons, but what she truly is after is any sort of conversation between the two; weapons could easily be concealed, but once motives were uncovered, the question of weapons becomes easily discernable. However, even as she hovers above the two, Sen remains wary. Alturo somehow was able to see her; she couldn't afford to risk being careless behind invisibility for the possibility that these two could also see through it.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Blasted Vivid Dreams and Their Implicit Meanings


Haila woke up confused. Well, confused might put it too lightly; in truth she was bewildered. That dream she had hardly made any sense to her, and Niamedris wasn't helping her understand it better at all.

"Dreams are just dreams; I can dream about mice, but does that mean I can get one the next day? Not necessarily." Niamedris offers, yawning.

Haila shakes her head, "That doesn't help." She mutters.

Perhaps it wasn't so much the dream on its own as a whole, as much as the beginning of it. That part is what truly bothers her, and is what makes the rest of it questionable.

Niamedris brushes against Haila's leg, "Hey, do you have to pay attention to that? Pay attention to more important things... like me!"

Rolling her eyes yet again, Haila brushes her hand across Niamedris' back, and scratches him behind the ears. Well, Niamedris was right about one thing; she really didn't need to think about it right now. Of course, now that she had resolved not to think about it, she couldn't stop thinking about it.

Wait just a minute. Haila thinks, The sword I briefly saw at the beginning of the dream... could it be THAT sword?! Can it really try to corrupt people from a distance?!

"Huh, wha?" Niamedris inserts, uninvited, "That thing is just a piece of metal isn't it?"

Ignoring Niamedris, Haila goes to continue her train of thought, but overhears Cor's question.

"Might I have a word with you about a most peculiar dream I had last night? I heard teh voice of Odin promising me a war-hammer; at least it seemed to be Odin. Do you believe our god would find great favor in me? I am a bit concerned it may not be as it seems."

"Did everyone have a dream where they were promised something?" Haila asks hesitantly, then adds, "Everyone except Althena that is."

"Divot if you so much as look inside that doorway or get within twenty feet of it I will have Haila tie you up tighter than a trussed goose ready for the spit."

Haila winks at Rayne, with a sly smile on her face, "Don't worry, I'll see to it."

Haila turns and also winks at Divot, her eyes twinkling mischieviously, "Do you hear that? Now I have permission to make sure you don't go in there anytime soon..."

Subject: How Dare They!


Linnix grits her teeth as the wave of calm hits her. No! I don't need to be calm! Those wolves need to be killed!

Linnix looks on with more or less indifference as the events of the Fae take place. She really was not in the mood for such intermissions, looking around at the remaining beasts to be killed, thinking of which are the biggest problems. The pain in her thigh and side are felt, and even though she was supernaturally calmed, Linnix's anger boiled inside. Finally, she was free of restraint, and allowed to move.

"Could've waited until the battle was over rather than interrupting!" Linnix shouts angrilly to no one in particular, switching her scythe for her crossbow and slamming another silver bolt within it.

(two move actions, retrieve crossbow, load it, and that's a round >.>)

(This next bit depends on the lycanthrope being not-stone encased)

Linnix raises the crossbow, aiming at the lycanthrope's head. She lines up the shaft of the bolt with her right eye, which is her dominant eye in sight, and with the ugly and furry head. without much of a thought, she fires.

She then immediately inserts another silver bolt in her crossbow.

(if the lycanthrope is still stonish in this second round, then the target instead is that other dire wolf)

"Oh, before it slips my mind again..." Cindi says, putting the notebook down for a moment, "Are either of you two injured? I did find a first-aid kit earlier..."

She looks between the two men, but it appeared they were fine.

"Alright, just making sure." Cindi says, picking up the notebook again, "You might know my name," she indicates towards Jonah, "But you're not doing very well introducing everyone, so I'll introduce myself. I'm Cindi Lawran. Cindi is spelt with an 'i' rather than a 'y' at the end."

After speaking, Cindi returns to reading the notebook, appearing to ignore the poker game that may or may not occur.

“Oy, we can’ ‘ave tha’, can we,” he snickered, holding her close and kissing her again. Divot cradled Halia’s face in his small hands the smile on his lips, now, a bit less the reckless, roguish one that the party was familiar with and more one that had been painted with the realization that he did have quite a bit to live for, these days. “I’ll be sure ta mind me step from here on, luv. I din’t mean ta scare ye.”

Haila blushes a bit more, and nods, "That's good."

"Do butterflies taste any good? They move fast, like mice, and mice taste good..." Niamedris suddenly thinks aloud, evidently hungry as he nuzzles against Haila, demanding attention.

Absently, Haila pets the cat, running her hand across its back, and passing it a small piece of jerky.

"You might want to consider a diet; you're starting to eat quite often now." Haila playfully jests.

"Diet, me? Nah. I'm still growing, unlike you, my not-feline friend." Niamedris returns.

With an incredulous look on her face, Haila glares at the cat, "I am too still growing! Just what are you talking about?"

Licking his paws, Niamedris responds, "I can't see any difference anyway."

Haila rolls her eyes, murmuring under her breath, "Never get into an argument with a cat; they never change their minds."

“What?!” Divot finally demanded after having met the samurai’s disconcerted gaze a third time. “I done said I were sorra!”

Haila turns, seeing what the commotion is about. She looks towards Kenji, a worried expression on her face. That's right... where he came from, there wasn't much to do with magic, so this would be quite unnerving for him.

"What's wrong with someone waking up after sleeping?" Niamedris interjects, eavesthinking on Haila's thoughts.

"How many times do I have to tell you not to poke around my personal thought-space?!" Haila returns, irritated.

"Always once more than the last time." Niamedris says, yawning and stretching.

Shaking her head as though the motion could dislodge Niamedris from it, Haila walks over to a spot between Kenji and Divot, but not actually blocking the exchange between the two. She doesn't say anything, yet, but glances at Kenji carefully.

Thank you very much for the compliment! I'm glad...

Topic: ~Crimson Blood~
Subject: Magic of a Different Variety


The little girl watches the two from above, intrigued by the conversation. Magic, it would seem, is far different for the residents of this world than several of the other worlds she's been to. However, her own innate ties with magic are thankfully undisrupted. In a couple of the worlds she's been to, people there have used demons in order to use magic, albiet of a different variety. Hmm, that would mean that it could be more dangerous for her here because, if she were to be used in a similar manner, the magic obtained would probably be at about the level as that of the use of a greater demon. She cannot risk letting others know of her presence...

Apprehensive, the little girl remains above, invisible, watching Artemis and Illiana as well as watching over them.

Ninkanna glances around her entire range of vision within the Hall. The architecture is astounding, but... it feels so empty to her, almost cold in a sense, not unlike the direct droid who is leading them. The place almost seems like a library or archive, with the doors along the side to lead to rooms filled with datapads and memory files.

"Welcome, welcome,"

Ninkanna quickly turns to the source, having not really been paying attention to what is in front of her.

"I'm sorry, JO is supposed to be programed for ettiquette, but I swear that whoever programmed must have been completely inept at that subject..."

"Oh, that's alright, I imagine it'd be among the more difficult things for a droid to comprehend." Ninkanna says, thinking about her starfighter's astromech droid and its own little quirks.

"I'm sorry, I shouldn't be blathering" he continued. "Please come with me, let me show you to the dining room. I want to give our Jedi friends a warm welcome."

"Thank you." Ninkanna replies, giving a respectful bow.

She follows Namor into the dining room, hoping she wouldn't be asked to do too much that's out of her league.

Two of the watchers quickly left after Erihsehc, and Sen had little doubt that they held ill intentions. Carefully picking up the bag that was an offering to her by Arturo, Sen quickly races and catches up with Erihsehc.

During her flight, Sen examines the stones in the bag. She was right; these could be used for... well, hopefully she wouldn't have to use them in that fashion, although it is possible. She places the bag within her own pouch, and flies alongside Erihsehc.

"Be careful; you are being followed." Sen whispers, her voice strong enough to hear over the horse's gallop, but soft and faint enough that only Erihsehc would be able to hear her, "It's the two men who were watching you alongside that dwarf; they've been following you since you left Kint."

Subject: TWILIGHT


At the twilight of dusk, Tristin is beginning to rouse from his brief slumber, yet Qin is still plainly asleep. The air is calm and peaceful.

Armand, Deunan, Caduceus and Renshiir reach the Hylon city gates, their journey uneventful, for even the wild predators kept to their own. The sounds of civilization within the city are drawing to a close as people prepare for this night's sleep, if they aren't already asleep.

Manalagna has awoken from his brief slumber, finding himself alone in the arena guest quarters. There is little sound from the arena; it seems many people have gone to bed.

Dusk has reached the next stop along his unmade path, reaching the city gates of Wanqir. Unlike Hylon, Wanqir is still a buzz of activity, with late evening merchants and people still going about their business. Yet, even with this business, there is a peaceful air in the evening.

Willow and Nintarra are just meandering around the peaceful city of Aqinarr when the sun descends.

Yet, they all remain for the most part oblivious, a blissful ignorance, and one that cannot last.

The mountain of Venerro looms over the rest of the continent, solid and magnificent. It is a constant, unchanged by even the six years of brutality, those six years of unrelenting disasters. Hurricanes, tornadoes, even magma seeped out of the mountains and the ground, and at times the ground shook with such ferocity that it seemed as though the world was tearing in two. That was now over, and it has been peaceful for a year. Just short of exactly one year.

A curious and knowing girl sits near Mount Venerro's peak. The sun has begun to dip over the horizon. The girl is so close she can feel it, the pressure building along the seams of the fabric of reality. It wouldn't be safe here to watch. She retreats further down the mountain. Who knew where the world would split?

The sun descends further, nearing the halfway point. The sounds of the world slowly fade, as the world shushes its people, willing them to listen. Finally, the sun reaches the halfway mark, the True Twilight.

"They're here." The girl whispers, fear and anticipation resonating within her voice.

With a cacocophonous roar even greater than point blank thunder, the sky cracks. It isn't a single fracture either, for this crack, extending from the peak of Venerro, shatters a large portion of the sky, appearing much like a window pane after it has been hit with a marble. The sound alone is immense, spanning the width of the continent of Tiancann, and even beyond. Those who are asleep awaken, those who are not are shaken, and the girl at the pinnacle of the occurace is nearly blown away. The one main crack in the sky can be seen throughout Tiancann, and even the spiderweb cracks extending from it can be seen, although not as clearly. Even in the Forest of Hylon, the crack extends far enough forth that it can be seen through most of the foliage of the tree canopy, and from the clearing of Hylon city, it can be seen in its entirety. The cracks are an unnatural and blank white, contrasting sharply with the natural world. They even cast immense shadows on the ground under the fading sun.

The girl staggers to her feet, looking up at the peak of the mountain sadly. She quickly flees the area, leaping into the air with a burst of speed from her dragonfly wings and vanishing.

The Dead Dusk of Destruction has come to Tiancann.

Aqinarr City
Willow's Room
Three and Three Quarter Hours before Twilight


(as was planned in MSN)

Dinner is a plain stew along with some bread and biscuits, but Willow's thoughts likely weren't about supper, and it was hard to tell exactly what Nintarra was thinking. Afterwards, the two decide to stroll around the city, carefully making sure not to go near Casia's delivery route, especially now that she is clearly known to be a thief, albiet one that only steals for the thrill of it.

Along the trek, Nintarra shares her story with Willow. She doesn't remember her parents, being born just before the six years of turmoil, and among those who died during those years includes her parents. She made a living from performing, whether it be dancing, or orally through song, and it is mainly from her savings from that that she had saved enough to almost fully buy the cards.

Yet, even though she is a bit sad that her parents are gone, Nintarra is still a kind and compassionate person. She also discloses to Willow the reason why she bought the cards: she wants to be able to foretell danger, just to help people prepare for it to help prevent loss.

(okies... checkpoint!)

Aqinarr City
Willow's Room
Three and Three Quarter Hours before Twilight


The futuresight was successful, but its coming left more questions in Willow than answers.

"I've heard of doom prophecies before, but to doubt an actual divination such as this would be foolish. What do you think it means exactly? What kind of danger do you think it represents?" Willow stopped a second to take in the reality of predicted misfortune. Such was the way of foresight, it provoked much more questions than ever it answered.

The girl looks at Willow comfortingly, and suddenly she seems so much older than she actually is, "It just means something is going to happen that we have to be aware of and be ready to act. As for what exactly, I can't even try to guess. The fact that it's three of the cards when two would've had the same message implies that it is going to be something big, at least on the scale of the storms from the six years before this one."

Seeing Willow try to make sense of the cards, the girl adds, "The center card represents things on a whole. These three cards in front of me are ones that represent you. These three here," indicating the south with the water-fire-water combination, "represent the near future. These three in front of you show obsticles, and the middle one is a way through them. The final three are for the future beyond."

The girl smiles, "I haven't actually studied magic; the magic is in the cards. I just happened to memorize the words to activate them, and the meanings of the cards kind of come to me when I read them."

"Come, I'll treat you to supper then," Willow invited the golden-eyed child. "My name is Willow, may I ask what yours would be?"

The girl curtsies, "My name is Nintarra, and it's a pleasure to meet you Willow."

Something is strange. Nintarra's apparent age seems too young for her level of maturity. Did obtaining the cards change her in some way, or is this just a wisdom and grace that was dormant in her? Out of the corner of her eye, Willow can see the price tag still on the wooden box, and it is 1440gp, but Willow only gave 100gp for her to buy it. How exactly did Nintarra get the rest of the gold?

Sen listens to the two men and the dwarf, but it seems they have stopped talking, so instead she listens to the conversation inside. Zenb... doesn't sound like a very friendly person to me she thinks.

When Sen hears about the bag for her, she too is slightly surprised. She knew that Arturo could see her, or otherwise perceive her, but she didn't expect he'd do much regarding her. She closes her eyes and strains her ears, listening for any indication of what might be in the bag.

clink clink A slight clinking sound as the things in the bag tap one another as it is moved. The sound has weight behind it, and so could only really be some sort of mineral. In an instant, Sen gueses wha's in the bag. Gemstones. Hmm, it seems Arturo knows a bit about sylphs. Sen reasons, knowing that in general sylphs such as she are drawn to pretty things that are light, such as gemstones and jewellery. Not to mention, there were other things that could be done with gemstones...

Erihsehc exits the building and heads towards the stable, the nosy three watching him. They definitely had some sort of intent, but whether it was good or ill remained to be seen. Sen reasons that she can catch up to Erihsehc quickly enough, so she stays behind, spying on the nosy three people, waiting for them to slip or otherwise show their intentions.

"Why are you crying? He's just sleeping. They all do that from time to time you know." Niamedris' thought pokes into Haila's mind as she cries.

Haila almost lashes out at Niamedris' thought, but is too torn emotionally to do so. Her heart felt like an ice carving, cold, and melting... Divot... That would be two people she had lost who were close to her.

As the others talk about resurrection, Haila moves to the side, hoping.

Holding Divot's hand, even though it was dead, Haila feels the warmth return to it as his life is restored.

“H’lo Halia-luv,” he whispered.

Unbidden, Niamedris' thought comes as well, "See? I told you he was sleeping."

Haila rolls her eyes, although the motion isn't directed towards Divot. He was dead, and now he is alive! Her heart flutters after its sudden stop a few moments ago. When he kisses her, her cheeks redden, and she clenches his hand slightly. Sheesh, now they'll all know for sure. She thinks, But... do I really care?

"Hey, if I liked another cat, I wouldn't hide it. There's no reason to I think. You humans are just strange." Niamedris inserts, before his thought changes to questioning when the next meal is.

“If’n it meant I’d wake up tae yer face ever’ time, lass,” he winked, “I’d do it agin, too... Course, I’d much rather ye were smilin’ than boo-hooin’, aye?”

"You fool." Haila says with a smile.

Suddenly, she grabs Divot in her embrace, holding him tightly. "Don't you dare do that to me again! I'd kill you again for making my heart nearly stop!"
