    Notes to follow when you are making your application

      • Mind
    • Name cannot be silly. A pun can be excused, but "Zoosmell Pooplord" just isn't going to fly.
    • Race must be applicable
      • Mind: Human, Sheep
    • No young children or elders
      • Must be between 18 and 50, give or take depending on race.

      • Keep to male/female for the sex, and generally accepted terms for the gender.
      • If you would like clarification on what is "generally accepted", speak to someone in chat.
    • A picture would be lovely for the appearance section, but is not mandatory. Description is king.
    • Personality must be in five traits.
      • List and then explain how each of the traits fit.
      • No synonyms. You can't get away with "nice, kind, friendly"
    • Two strengths and three flaws are MINIMUMS.
      • Add as many as are applicable, but please keep a general balance between the two.
      • Strengths should be skills, or something they have physical prowess in that is not guaranteed by their race.
      • Flaws should be a mix of physical weaknesses, mental weaknesses, social weaknesses, et cetera.
    • List family both alive and dead, out a couple generations.
      • You don't need to give a whole detailed family tree and history, but we should have some idea of their setup in life.
    • For the backstory, realism and research are mandatory.
      • If the character does not or cannot fit the lore of the story they will not be accepted under any circumstances.

    • In the Elemental Inheritance application...
      • You must include enough of a family tree to prove that the character is possibly related to the Element you seek.
      • You must provide an explanation as to why the Element would choose your character.
        • All Elements will be more likely to choose someone who is a part of the group rather than someone in another area. They want the plot to work out as much as we do.
        • Mind prefers hosts to be as young as possible.
      • Mages cannot become Elementals.
      • Keep in mind that this form is shorter, but you should be aiming to have a lot of solid and logical explanation in it.It's easy to make a character fit the bill, but making the bill fit a character takes some doing.

    • "You should've heard him in the tavern," Dark says, adopting a fake expression of fright. "Threatened to kill me over a little joke. I was scared for my life!"

      Zoe opens her eyes and looks around. "Bloody hell," Zoe whispers to herself. She felt a bit off, a bit... tingly. She looks at June. "Luv, is feeling... tingly... normal after something like this?"

    • "No, we can go somewhere else!" Falaos replied.

    • Hugh let out a very faint whine and a groan, followed by a few chuckles. He let the wolf step aside before getting on his elbows and rub his head. "O... Ow, haha~" He said calmly, getting up. "I'm okay... Might be a little dirty though..."

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would instantly offer his paw to help Hugh get up. As Hugh would get up Fionn would help dust off some of the dirt from Hugh's clothes as he begins to speak gently. "Ah, should I clean your clothes as soon as we get to an inn?" He asks with a somewhat neutral expression bordering on shy.

        Loading editor
    • Hugh smiled gently and rubbed his eye, dusting himself off a bit. "Mmhmm, it might be a good idea, though we would need to get to it quick if we don't want my clothes to still be wet when we will go back to the carriage." He answered, patting Scarlet's head.

        Loading editor
    • "Ah, don't worry, I'll make sure it dries by the time we have to go." Fionn answers to Hugh.

        Loading editor
    • Hugh chuckled. "Though you don't have to do that alone then! We'll share the job when we will get there, is that alright?" He asked back, starting to walk again while holding his shoulder.

        Loading editor
    • Scalet pouts... She looks to fionn "Sorry"

        Loading editor
    • Fionn looks at Scarlet ~Its allright, I'm just glad youre fine, I was getting worried when I didnt see you get to where I was.~ He says to Scarlet, he looks back at Hugh and starts walking behind Hugh, doing a slight motion with his hand to indicate Scarlet to come with. "Its allright.. I can do it on my own and I promise I'll do a good job.. Besides, um, Excuse me if im being meddlesome but, if your shoulder is hurting then perhaps it would be best you rest up.." He says, to Hugh somewhat shyly.

    • "Oh yes. Definitely," June replied. "You didn't exist there for a moment."

      Mira said nothing, but instead pouted.

        Loading editor
    • Hugh's gaze had already wandered off to the end of the street after only a few steps, and the rabbit needed to blink a few times to look at Fionn. "Ah, it's just a light pain, it's not even pain actually, just a little discomfort. It will go away soon, but if you want to stop it now..." He stopped walking and talking at the same time, turning his left shoulder to the wolf, and looking at Scarlet with a smile.

        Loading editor
    • "Oh! Um, right! I forgot about that... Give me a moment please." Fionn says, he'd stop for a moment, take a breath and closing his eyes trying to concentrate "Just do what you did before.." He thinks, nothing would feel different at all and Hugh wouldnt feel a little bit better, Fionn frowning slightly as he continues to try to focus "Hurry up.. you have to heal him now." He thinks to himself once more, his expression clearly growing a bit more distressed as nothing seems to happen.

      Xil would look at Mira as she pouts, he opens his snout as if to defend himself but stops before even making a sound past taking a breath. He'd simply look at the two for a moment before frowning. "Fine, whatever, I'll go away, its not like you need my help watching that kid when you've got the one legged nanny expert here." He says in a resentful tone before walking away back into the tavern, he'd entirely ignore Mira or Dark if they were to call out to him as he walks away and would simply enter the tavern and sit by himself, continuing to drink alone.

        Loading editor
    • (okay so did Dark or Xil actually guess Mira was half drunk? xD)

      Despite not feeling anything at all, Hugh notices Fionn's distress and moves his shoulder away. He made a couple circles with his arm and sighed in a fake relief. "Aaah, that's alright now, thank you Fionn... y..." The nickname mistakenly escaped his lips, and his cheeks turned with a soft pink colour.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would open his eyes as Hugh speaks "B-bu-..." He'd mutter with a concerned expression. He'd simply look at Hugh for a moment and nod faking a smile and would continue to follow Hugh quietly, apparently paying no mind to the nickname as if he hadn't heard it.

      (Well Xil didnt, Dark had previously insinuated to Xil that he could easily get Mira to side with him and thats what it looks like to Xil right now, thats why he walked away like that.

      Also btw, Hugh is offering to help Fionn clean Hugh's clothes but well, if they'd be cleaning Hugh's clothes what would Hugh be wearing?  :p)

        Loading editor
    • (it can last the time of a long bath~ also, underwear or towel, I guess)

      Hugh was as convincing as he could, patting Fionn's shoulder as they started walking again. "I told you I was barely feeling it, no wonder you can't feel it much either! I feel you are worried, Fionn." He told him quietly.

        Loading editor
    • "Okay good," Zoe says, relieved that she didn't contract some deadly illness from the teleportation. She never read that far into Mystery when she was required to learn about the Elements for the Swordsmen. "How far are you able to teleport, luv?"

      "Well, I certainly didn't expect him to walk off like that," Dark says, watching Xil walk to thee tavern and when he went inside remained fixated on the door. "Guess it's just us two now."

        Loading editor
    • (I locked myself in a terrible position, probably shouldn't separate Sub from everyone else, makes it hard to think of what to do other than wait, have some more filler)

      Sylvan was rolling around in the bed, trying to find a comfortable position, he can't seem to sleep. His stomach growled a bit, he sighed and decided to find some food.

        Loading editor
    • "I-Im not!" Fionn answers hastily. "Sorry, was I making faces?" He asks.

      (Ogs you know the building sub was in is a tavern? He can probably find food in there, he could be xil's drinking buddy.  :p

      Aifru, was dark trying to get xil to punch him? Lol.)

        Loading editor
    • "Depends on how familiar I am with an area," June replied. "I could teleport clear across a forest if I knew it well enough, but in a town like this, up a story is about the best I can do if I can't see where I'm going."

      "Wait! Xilll!" Mira called, chasing after the tiger. She stumbled over her steps, and spilled her drink on the fresh snow, but eventually made it into the tavern. She entered, and made her way, as stably as she could (which wasn't very) to the table Xil was sitting at.

        Loading editor
    • Xil would look at Mira aa she comes inside and sits down. "What are ya doin here? Ain.. Are.. Uhh.. Shouldn you be outside with that guy?" He says having some troubles with his words as he gulps down a good portion of his third drink.

        Loading editor
    • "So, it's all about familiarity then," Zoe says, mostly to herself but it audible enough for June to hear.

      "Well then," Dark says. He would follow but he decides to stay and watch Sarah.

        Loading editor
    • "Plus line of sight," June added. "It's easy to teleport anywhere you can see, but trying to teleport beyond a wall becomes harder."

      "Be- Because," Mira started, then sat -or rather fell- into the chair opposite to Xil. "Why would I want to be... Out there with him- when I can talk to you?"

        Loading editor
    • Hugh nodded quietly to the Life Elemental. He kept silent but his nod was enough to answer him. The three kept walking towards the inn, away from the tavern where Fionn was standing near to before, and reaching to Zeeb's town center.

        Loading editor
    • (The Tavern is the only inn in the village. Sorry, should have specified that earlier.)

        Loading editor
    • "I see," Zoe says. "Think you'd be able to teleport us back to the center of the village, luv? It's about time we head back there, don't ya think?"

        Loading editor
    • "Alright Falaos." Raole says, he then turns to Yumo, Momo and Red. "After you."

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would quietly follow Hugh towards the inn/Tavern forcing a neutral expression as he does.

      Xil would look at Mira clearly somewhat confused "What? But uh, I thoghht you were uhh, angry? He ssaid... He ssaid... That thing.... Y'nkow?.." he says sloppily as he puts down his almost empty drink. 

        Loading editor
    • June turned around, and looked in that direction. "Not into the square, but the rooftops just above. I hope you don't mind jumping."

      "I'm not... I'm not angry," Mira replied, drinking what was left of her drink that she hadn't spilled. She was purring quite loudly, even compared to her normal purring when around Xil.

        Loading editor
    • "Won't mind at all, luv," Zoe says, walking next to June and grabbing her hand. She looks at her and would smile if June looked back, then would close her eyes.

    • "Oh.. Uhh.. So uhh, cool. Hey uhh did I tellya how uh I got thiss?" Xil asks while poking his cheek entirelly missing his scar to which he wanted to point at.

    • As Sub went down, he spotted Mira and Xil, he decided to leave them alone and try to find some food.

        Loading editor
    • (I'm gonna assume there is just another tavern then?)

      Hugh once again looked at Fionn and shrugged as to ask what was he doing. "Is something definitely wrong, Fionn?"

        Loading editor
    • Momo and Yumo started walking to the door and going outside. "Where do we go next, by the way?", Momo asked, with Yumo looking at them as well for an answer.

        Loading editor
    • Red followed the twins before looking back at Raole and Falaos, waiting for an answer.

        Loading editor
    • (Hmm I dont think thats right para, i think jaz meant that basically there's only one place they can spend the night in and it is the only tavern in the village, which in this village also doubles as an inn.)

      Fionn would look back at Hugh confused. "N-no I just.. Uncle Ru taught me not to make faces b-because it bothers people.." He says shyly as he tries to retain a neutral expression.

        Loading editor
    • (Ah damn x) I thought there would be a couple taverns/bars/cafes, but only one inn that happens to be over a tavern. Should we edit our previous replies?)

      "It might bother people you don't know, but when you're with your friends it's quite better to not hide your emotions behind a blank face..." Hugh answered, his ears lowering down on his back. "Really, I'd feel more secure if I was sure none of my friends would hide secrets from me..." He sighed softly and chuckled. "And from my past experiences, secrets tend to be revealed over time."

        Loading editor
    • (What Rak said. Zeeb is only a village, so it isn't really set up to accept large groups of people. If you have to edit your replies for them to make sense with that, I suggest you do.)

      A moment later, Zoe would feel tingly again. "We're here," June announced. She let go of Zoe's hand, and crouched down at the edge of the roof, plotting her way down. Sarah and Baduhn caught her eye.

      The two had continued playing tag while Zoe was away, and now Sarah was up a tree. Baduhn was trying, and failing to climb the tree in order to get her. The ursine carriage driver was watching.

      "Zoe, didn't you leave Sarah with Mira and her tiger boyfriend?" June asked.

      "No, I don't... I don't think you did," Mira replied, leaning in. Her tail was swishing about a lot.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would stop for a moment, confusion all over his face as he tries to make sense of it. "i don't understand.. Im sorry, its just that, my parents had taught me one thing and then uncle ru told me that was wrong and taught me another, and now youre telling me something different. How do I know which one is really right?.." He asks to the rabbit.

      Xil would finish off his drink and wave at the bartender for another before continuing. "Sso, I was jus walkin around, I think i was uhh, like 12 or somethin, dunno, 'n I saw a bunch of humans pushin some anthro so I just freakin started beatin those fuckkers up 'n this jerk jus like pulls out a friggin sword 'n just like.." He makes some sloppy cutting motions with his hands, "He jus stabbed me in the friggin face but I didin' even care and they jus friggin got scared or ssomethin 'n then the other guy checked my face 'n stuff as thanks for savin him." He says proudly, grabbing his new drink and just gulping down half of it in one go.

        Loading editor
    • Hugh gave Fionn the same confused look. "What? O... Oh, well..." He said shortly after, taking back his words. "I guess the education we had is different... Not bad, mind you! Just... Different."

      He looked right in front of him and was already seeing the square place. "We're all different, that's why I believe that even if it's hard, our hearts should beat the same way, speak the same language of truth and peace."

      He looked back at the wolf. "It's almost as if you were lying to yourself and to others when you hide your emotions... You know?"

        Loading editor
    • Zoe would ignore the tinglyness after hearing June's question. "Why yes, luv, I did," Zoe says, joining June at the edge and looking around for the two and only seeing Dark. "Maybe Connor can explain the lack of either of them," Zoe states in a slightly angry tone. She jumps off the roof at the lowest part onto the snow covered ground. Once June was down she'd begin walking toward Dark.

        Loading editor
    • June sighed, and jumped down as well. While Zoe walked to Dark, she headed to the tree Sarah was in. "Sarah, what are you doing up there?"

      "Ooh," Mira remarked, clearly interested. She stared at the scar for a while.

        Loading editor
    • "Trying not to be caught by Baduhn!" Sarah says. "We're playing tag!"

      Zoe walks up to Dark. She notices the empty wine glass still present in his hand. "Connor," she snaps.

      Connor suddenly turns to Zoe, having been looking at Sarah up in the tree before. "Oh, Zoe. You're back."

      "Correct," Zoe replies. "Where are the two that I had watching Sarah?"

      "Mira and Xil? They went into the tavern," Dark answers, pointing at the tavern.

      Zoe looks over to where Dark is pointing. "Hmm. Thanks luv," she says, then starts walking toward the tavern.

      "No problem," Dark replies, watching Zoe as she enters the tavern. When Zoe enters, she begins looking around for Mira and Xil.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would look down for a moment as he thinks about it, he'd nod and continue following Hugh to the tavern.

      Xil would lean forward, instinctively placing one of his arms on the table to avoid doing a faceplant "Hey... Y'wanna touch it?" He says as he tries to remain steady while leaning towards Mira, failing to notice Zoe at all.

        Loading editor
    • "Are you in charge?" she June asked the carriage driver.

      "I suppose," he replied.

      "Can I take Sarah back now?"

      "Sure. Baduhn!" He said something in Ursa, and Baduhn ran to him.

      June turned her attention back to Sarah. "Come on down. Let's get you back to Zoe."

      Mira went to touch the scar, and missed. She had to try twice more before she managed to actually land her hand on it. "It's rough!"

        Loading editor
    • "Byeeeeeee Baduhn!" Sarah shouts to Baduhn as he leaves. She then quickly makes her way down the tree and turns to June. "Elllooo!"

      Zoe spotted the two drunk anthros and starts making her way to their table. When she makes it, she slams both hands on their table. "What in the bloody hell are you two blokes doing in here?!"

        Loading editor
    • "Well how about we look for a tavern. We will need a place to rest yes?" Raole told Yumo, Momo and Red. He then turned to Falaos. "Unless you want to go somewhere else Falaos."

        Loading editor
    • Xil would react as Zoe slams the table lifting his arms in an attempt of a defense position as is natural to him and winds up instead slamming his face against the table as he lefts up the arm that was supporting his body as he was leaning forward. "Ow! My face.." He says as he sits back, rubbing his nose as he does.

        Loading editor
    • Hugh felt something not really usual would soon happen, it it hadn't started happening already. He looked at Fionn a little nervously and suddenly walked a little bit faster, soon reaching the place.

      The first person he saw was the carriage driver, probably due to his size, and then his gaze drifted to June. "Ah, here we are." He'd sigh.

        Loading editor
    • "No, that sounds good." Falaos replied.

    • (fine ill go)

      Mira turned to Zoe with a 'bitch what do you want' face. "Drinkin'," she said, taking a sip from her already empty glass.

    • Zoe watched Mira drink from her empty glass, unamused. "Right. Let me rephrase that. What in the bloody hell are you two doing in here when you're supposed to be watching my sister!"

        Loading editor
    • "Okay, it is settled then. Let's go." Raole says to the youngsters. "Right behind you."

      (Oh god, Im making him sound like a pedo help)

    • As Sub ordered his food at the counter, he glanced a bit at the table Xil and Mira were on. "I'm definitely not sitting there" As he noticed how drunk they were.

        Loading editor
    • Xil looks at Zoe "Well I dunno uhh, last time I checked she was 'n fire righ? 'n then, the leg came 'n I wass likke pff 'n I left so uhh then I told 'er bout my face 'n how awesome I am, cuss like, som time ago I..." He'd continue rambling like an idiot about himself, getting harder to tell what he even says as he goes on.

      Fionn would continue following Hugh quietly, he'd look towards June from the corner of his eye simply to see who Hugh was waving at but would keep his head down as he follows.

        Loading editor
    • "Alright, let's get you cleaned up a bit, shall we? You got pine sap in your hair," June said. She reached into her bag and rooted around for a while, eventually fishing out a comb and a handkerchief. When she looked up, she noticed Hugh, and waved back.

      "I didn't know you had a sister," Mira said, her words interrupted every so often by giggles.

        Loading editor
    • Sarah feels her hair for the pine sap. "Oh! I didn't even notice... Okay!"

      "Sarah? Little girl, black hair, blue and green eyes? The girl I had you watch for me? Ring a bell, luv?" Zoe says in an annoyed sarcastic tone.

        Loading editor
    • "Listen," Mira said, attempting to put her hand on Zoe's shoulder, and missing entirely, resulting in her slapping the table. "If ya put Sarah with a couple a' people who dun' wanna take care a' her when ya wanna go runnin' around with some'un that's yer own fault."

      "Alright. Into the tavern we go, then," June said, and walked with Sarah in there. She lifted the little girl up onto one of the barstools, and called the bartender over. "I need your highest concentration drink. The girl got sap in her hair."

      The bartender disappeared briefly, and came back with a bottle full of clear liquid. "Riemerian Wine," he said, pouring a shotglass for her. "Almost pure alcohol."

      "Wonderful," June replied, taking her handkerchief, and dipping it in. she began carefully removing the sap from Sarah's hair with the very strong drink.

        Loading editor
    • "Yehhh ya telll 'er!" Xil says cheering on Mira, as he does he would raise his glass to take a drink and as he does would spill a hearthy amount of it on himself "Uhh whoops, guess I need 'nother Heh" He says clumsily spilling a few drops more on the table as he turns it upside down to show its empty "Ey! Bring me 'nother!" He says loudly to the bartender.

    • Hugh smiles as the young woman waves back, then jogs over after her as she left the square place to the tavern. "Let's go in, Fionn!" He called the wolf, and ran a little bit faster.

        Loading editor
    • Sarah sits there gleefully. She spots Zoe yelling at Mira and Xil. She raises her hand and waves to her. "Elllllloooooooo Zoe!"

      Zoe rolls her eyes. "I don't expect you to take care of her. Sarah can do that herself. You, luv, are just a familiar face that she'll see and go toward after she's done playing," Zoe says. "Otherwise the dear will just go off with some stranger."She then takes her hands off the table and looks toward the bar to see Sarah. She waves back.

      Sarah giggles upon seeing the return wave.

      Dark stands up from the bench. "Looks like everyone's heading to the tavern," he states to himself, then starts dizzily walking toward it.

        Loading editor
    • "A-ah! yes! Right behind you!" Fionn says a bit surprised as Hugh starts to run, running at a similar pace and making sure to keep close to Hugh.

      "Then why dun' you jusst like.. Put yer face over there next to 'er if thats all she needs?" Xil responds with a face as if saying 'Jeez thats so obvious' and would look at Mira as if looking for approval. 

        Loading editor
    • Hugh also spotted Dark, walking to the tavern. "Oh wow, looks like everyone's heading to the tavern", he thought, and passed next to him. "Oh hey Dark! How's going?" He asked the Death Elemental with a joyful smile, stopping a bit. "You're going to the tavern too?"

        Loading editor
    • Mira giggled at Xil's idea. "Or just tie Dark up out there so she'd go to him."

      "Don't move, now," June instructed. "Unless you want a wet cloth in your ear." She looked up at Zoe and smiled though.

        Loading editor
    • "Okay!" Sarah says cheerfully.

      Zoe sighs. "Yeh know what? I'm not gonna deal with this right now. I'll talk to you chaps tomorrow," Zoe says. She leaves the table and walks toward the bar where June and Sarah were. "Ello luvs," Zoe greets.

      "Ellllloooo Zoe!" Sarah greets back.

      "Yep. Seems like that's where everyone else is going, so why not?" Dark says, stumbling a bit as he stops to talk to Hugh. He wasn't full on drunk, just tipsy.

        Loading editor
    • "Sarah got sap in her hair while climbing trees," June informed Zoe, not ceasing her removal of it. "On the upside though, I get the rest of the Riemerian that I don't use on this."

      "We showed her," Mira said, a smug grin on her face.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would stop right behind Hugh and simply look as he talks to Dark. As Dark seems to have difficulty walking Fionn would seem somewhat worried "Forgive me for interrupting but, um, are you allright?" He says to Dark.

      "Pshhh" Xil lets out as zoe walks away, he looks to the bartender as they somewhat begrudgingly give Xil another drink. Xil takes the drink and looks at Mira "Sso uh.. Hwat were we doin'?" He asks looking heavily drunk now.

    • "Huh? Oh yeah, I'm fine. Just have had a bit to drink," Dark says. He holds up his wine glass for the two anthros to see to signify this.

      "Ah, I see," Zoe says, patting Sarah on the shoulder. "What were yeh doing up in the tree, luv?"

      "Getting away from Baduhn. We were playing tag!" Sarah says gleefully.

    • Hugh's nostrils flared a little as he got close to the wine. He wasn't much aware of the pleasures of alcohol, yet he knew what it was about. "I can smell that alright, and you're handling it pretty well?" He asked him as well, turning his shoulders towards the tavern as to invite the two Elementals to follow him there.

      "I'll be sure to give her a bath before bed, luv," Zoe says. She then turns to the bartender. "I and the little girl will have some water, please."

      "What were you talking to Mr Big Kitty and Ms Nice Cat Lady about?" Sarah asks her older sister.

      "Oh, nothing luv," Zoe says, getting the two waters and handing one to Sarah who begins taking tiny sips from it.

    • "It's scary what happened to your leg, really..." Hugh replied, pushing on the tavern's door to swing it open for Dark and Fionn to enter first. He had given a glance to Dark's leg and frowned sadly, rememberinghow he had to make Dark and Mira both disappear in the ring last time.

    • "O-okay," Mira replied, standing up, and making her way over to the bar. "Can me an Xil get a... a room?" she asked the bartender, who quickly gave her a key and sent her on her way.

      She returned to Xil, patted him on the shoulder as a way to say 'come with me,' and then proceeded to the stairs that would lead them up to their room.

      June had watched this, and shook her head before taking the shot of Riemerian. "Those two are going to have the worst hangovers tomorrow."

    • "Oh?.. Ah!" Fionn lets out as he realizes Hugh is holding the door for him and does the tiniest of nervous jumps which boosts him to walk through the doorway, standing next to it as he waits for Hugh to come in.

      "Huh? Oh eyy we leavin' already? Hehe" Xil says, he'd clumsily get up and follow Mira, making sure not to leave his drink behind. As he walks over to the stairs he'd throw the silliest of looks at Zoe and June and childishly stick out his tounge before walking into the wall next to the stairs "uhhh eehh who put thhat 'ere??" He says in an annoyed tone before continuing up the stairs.

    • Hugh just got the time to glance towards the other end of the tavern's ground floor, to see Xil's frame and someone before him disappear through the staircase. His cheeks flushed with a bit of annoyance as the scent of alcohol hit him more than ever, yet he still remained calm and closed the door behind Fionn and Scarlet, who was following close. He followed Fionn and Dark into the tavern, looking left and right as to know where to go now. "Okay so... I'm going to find June, I guess. What would you guys do?"

    • "Oh, uh, sure! If you could wash my coat that'd be cool," Dark says, taking off his coat and holding it out to Fionn. Once Fionn grabs hold of it he'd turn to Hugh. "I'll probably find Zoe and maybe get another glass of wine."

    • Hugh nodded to Fionn. "Oh yes, I shall take a room with you tonight again and we will clean my vest together if you want, now if you may excuse me..." He said softly, then turning to Dark :"Yes! Let's go see the girls together, Dark." stepping to the side and getting to June, Sarah and Zoe, smiling at them three. "Hello!"

        Loading editor
    • Fionn nods gently. He throws Dark's coat over his left shoulder and continues to walk to the bar, "Excuse me, I was wondering if I could borrow a washtub and washboard, and perhaps some soap to wash some clothes?" He asks the bartender, the bartender would point Fionn towards the back, "Ah, thank you very much, I'll go see first if any of my companions needs anything washed too." He adds, bowing slightly as he thanks the bartender and then turning around and having a look. He notices Zoe and June to be somewhat busy speaking with eachother so instead he'd go towards Sub who seems to be alone as he eats some dinner, "Um, Hi, sorry to bother you, I'm just gonna wash some clothes and I was wondering if perhaps you need anything washed?" He asks.

        Loading editor
    • "Well, I don't have spare clothes but I would be happy if I had outfit washed. Maybe later when I find some spares." He said, as he looked at Fionn. He noticed the button, he recalled it from somewhere but he wanted to clarify. "Wait... What is that?" He pointed while staring at it.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn nods as Sub tells him about the clothes, when he asks about the pin Fionn would seem somewhat confused. He looks at the pin Sub is staring at "Oh? This you mean? I got it from Mister Dratter back in one of the posts, he gave it to me after um, he helped me with something, he said its limited edition and that its made out of silver.." He explains to Sub.

"I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THESE FOR AWHILE!!! Usually, I'm way too busy to go to their presentations but did you mention IT WAS LIMITED?!!!?" He put his hands on Fionn's shoulders. "You are one lucky BASTARD. WHO GAVE IT TO YOU, WAS IT BIG? TELL ME IT WAS BIG?!!" He said as he shook Fionn while booming. He noticed what was doing, cleared his throat, tried to reclaim his composure and sat down. "Ahem, sorry about that. I got a little overexcited." He said with an embarrassed smile. "I'm a big fan of the dratter so I just couldn't control myself.

        Loading editor
    • Fionn would seem a bit startled at first. As Sub stands in front of him and puts his hands on fionn's shoulders he'd seem suddenly intimidated, mostly by Sub's size and as Sub shakes him he'd seem flat out scared with his tail between his legs. As Sub suddenly composes himself and sits back down Fionn would compose himself as well, ultimately seeming more confused than scared. 

      "O-oh, its a-allright, d-don't worry.." he adds still somewhat shaken up, as he stutters he'd take a breath to relax and would absentmindedly look to his left as he recalls Sub's questions, "Um.. I got it just outside t-the post we were at two days ago, in the early morning after spending the night... H-he did say it was limited edition and he said his name was Ajax Dratter.. And um.. He was pretty b-big, around as big as you..." he says making his best effort to answer all of Sub's questions as he nervously holds on to Dark's coat.

      "Hello Hugh," June greeted with a friendly wave. She invited him and Dark to sit down with a wave to the bar stools next to her.

      She nodded at Dark. "I see you got your hair cut. Looks good."

    • Hugh dusted off the strong, almost medical scent of alcohol, sitting on the stool next to Dark's designed seat. "How are you guys going? Is this the place we are going to sleep tonight?" He asked to Zoe first, his legs too long and still touching the floor as he was sitting down.

      "Why, thank you," Dark says to both June and Zoe.

      (This part happens after Hugh asks)

      "I'm doing great!" Sarah says in reply to Hugh.

      "I do believe this is where we'll be staying, luv," Zoe says "From the looks of things, this is the only inn in town."

      The rabbit then turned to June, smiling. "May I?" He asked first, in case that the woman would prefer talking to Zoe instead.

    • Fionn nods at Hugh, he makes a bow to everyone and takes his leave, walking away from the group to the door next to the bar. Once he was inside he'd look for the washtub and fill it up with water, he'd check Dark's coat, making sure to empty all the pockets and leaving Dark's items aside, he would then continue to thoroughly wash Dark's coat.

    • Zoe stayed quiet and listened to what Hugh was going to ask. Sarah began playing around with her glass after having finished with the water inside, which prompted Zoe to take the glass and get the bartender to refill it and give it back to the little girl.

      Dark continues drinking.

    • Hugh gave Fionn a friendly wave before smiling June and started to speak: "Well, I was just a little worried as I saw you go to tavern -and actually, you too-" he shortly pointed a finger at Zoe, smiling at her as well. "You both seemed angry, or preoccupied about something, I just took too long to ask about it, so here I go, please accept my apologies. Is everything alright with the drivers and our group?"

      The rabbit nervously twirled his thumbs for a short time and spoke again. "I mean, you both are kind of... extern to our group -or at least, our mission-, and we surely aren't the easiest to manage like you have done so far, especially for this trip to Harknest." Hugh seemed unsure the words he used were well chosen, but it was the best his tired self could do.

        Loading editor
    • "Oh the drivers are fine," June answered promptly, not giving Zoe a chance to interject. The question had been directed at her, after all. "It's Mira and her boyfriend that had us riled up. See, they were supposed to be watching Sarah, But they decided to get drunk instead."

      (Don't mind the alt...)

    • If Hugh's fur could have gotten any whiter, he would have been mistaken for an albinos rabbit by Dark and the three girls around him. Safe for his cheeks, of course, suddenly turning bright red. He choked on his own breath, blinking a few times but other than that not even moving from where he was standing, despite not feeling his legs. It was of a grotesque view to see Hugh trying to remain calm as he tugged on the collar of his shirt, and managed to speak louder than his own breath.

      "A... ah, so they m... must have disappointed a few, with their attitude." He said, trying his best to cool down. He managed to do so, and immediately added: "I guess you sent them to their rooms, since I saw Xil walk through the stairs, over there?" He briefly pointed at the said doorway, before grabbing his locket in his own pocket.

    • Hugh, still a bit shaken by the news about Mira and Xil, let out a nervous squeak at June's order. Though, briefly after Dark ate his own piece of bread, he answered Zoe. "He wasn't too bad when we stayed in at that inn back when we were in Vile Root, but I shall find a three bed room for Fionn, too. Poor wolf won't be left on the floor, not on my watch." He gave a wink at the wooden counter of the tavern, smiling to himself.

      "Remember, we're only here to rest up a bit before we head off again, so I don't want anyone getting drunk, got it?" one of the Swordsman say. They were female and clearly in charge.

      "Yes ma'am," six of the seven say.

He says, stuttering a  bit as he focuses on the washtub, once they reach a suitable spot he'd not to Hugh and empty it with his assistance, continuing to start filling it up with clean water afterwards and paying no mind to his own vest at all as he readies the washtub for Hugh's clothes.

    • "No common thief can get inside the library without the aid of a Monk," Melanie says. "The intruder was said to be able to teleport into and out of the interior of the library."

      "Of course," Melanie says, signaling Damien to follow and walking past the monk into the library. Both her and Damien would look around the library as they waited for the hark feathered man say or ask something.

    • "I suppose that's fair," June said, finally getting the drink she ordered and taking a sip of it.

      The bar was starting to get more busy.

      "So, how can we be of service in your hunt?" the man asked once everyone was inside. The doors remained open.

    • Melanie nods. She signals Damien to get him and her some drinks. "So, June, if I may, what kind of mage are you?"

      Sarah had started talking to Dark.

      "You can start by giving us details about the intruder," Melanie says, choosing not to specify what details are already known to her.

    • June decided that it was probably for the better that she use the old terminology in this instance. "I'm a spirit mage," she said.

      "From the report Lidia gave me, a Swordsman, likely human. Around six feet tall, and somewhat thin based on shoulder width. They were wearing a hooded brown cloak, and a swordsman mask. Neither the mask nor the cloak bore any largely identifying details," the monk explained. "Anything else?"

    • "Oh, so you use both Coaltion and Monk terminologies for the Elements, then?" Melanie asks. She is handed a glass of wine by Damien which she takes a sip of.

      The food arrives and Zoe begins passing it out, handing June her steak and Sarah and Dark their soup as well as her own soup. Sarah takes a sip of her soup then realizes it's too hot, to which Dark tells her to let it cool. Zoe waits for her's too cool as she listens to Mel and June's conversation.

      "Hm," Melanie says, realizing that this Monk was only retelling what he had been told from another. "May I speak with Lidia? I believe talking to the primary source would be more... beneficial... to our hunt," she adds bluntly.

    • As the washtub was slowly filling with hot water, Hugh smiled at Fionn, trying to make it stop worrying for a moment. "My vest isn't any more important than Dark's... or yours." He says, nodding in direction of Dark's coat then to Fionn's vest laying on the floor. "I can always ask my mother to make me a new one when I come back..." He added, his tune a little more hesitant suddenly, not really meant to be noted.

    • June began cutting her steak. "I was recently introduced to the Monk's terminology, so I understand it, but as I am a Coalition Mage, I will use our terminology where it is appropriate."

      "Lidia has moved to the library in Iberium. I am the Organizer for this library for the next foreseeable while," the man explained. "She did, however, share direct memories with me, so my word is as good as hers."

    • (Hmm, hey para? Just wanted to point out that Fionn just left his vest on the floor as he wasnt done washing it, he just prioritized Hugh's over his, unless Hugh did a time thing i dont see who would've hung Fionn's vest.)

      "Y-your mother made this?? All the more reason to be extra careful with it!" Fionn adds, he'd look at his claws for a moment and extends his paw to Hugh "Promise I'll be very careful." He reassures to him.

    • (I'll change it. Time magic will be for another day, heh.)

      "Fiiiiooooonnn!" Hugh would groan, rolling his eyes. "She'll still wait for me with a new one anyway, I mean..." Hugh stopped for second, lost in thoughts while holding the wolf's paw for the short handshake. "... when... if I come back." He finished, his ears folding onto his back as he gave Fionn a soft bow. "My vest has little to no matter compared to what we should take care of." he added quickly, trying to brush the thought about his mother away.

    • "It has much matter! Uhh.. I mean, it is very important Hugh, you know, just because you have this thing you have to do it doesn't mean you should forget about your family and leave them behind, and if... If you don't know if you'll be going home afterwards then that gives you even more reason to treasure something they gave you..." Fionn answers back as he gently begins to clean Hugh's vest. "I wish my parents had given me something this nice instead of..." He'd stop and just continue washing the vest.

    • (is he talking about the necklace or something? I can't remember T.T )

      Hugh turned to Fionn, after picking his vest and standing now right next to him. "Instead of... what? I know gifts are important no matter what is is, Fionn, but what matters more is the act of being gifted something, not the gift itself. It just helps to remember it, but even without a vest, I know my parents loved me." He added. "So, what did your parents gave you, again? I can't remember..."

    • (Just to clarify, Hugh has Fionn's vest right now then? If not I'll edit the comment.)

      "A lockpicking set..." He'd say lowering his head and ears a bit. He'd look at Hugh and notice his own piece of clothing in the rabbit's paws. "Oh, uhm, you don't have to bother yourself with that, I'll get back to it once I finish with yours." He adds.

    • "You could say that," June confirmed. She wasn't too keen on spilling the beans on the whole 'traveling with the Elementals' thing just yet, and she realized as she thought about it that the whole 'Elementals' thing was crazy anyways.

      "Very well," the Monk said, then turned around and looked up at the balcony. "Ikan!"

      A goat anthro looked up from his studies. Realizing he was being summoned, he placed a mark in his book and went down the stairs. "Yes, Bruce?"

      Bruce smiled, and returned to looking at Melanie and her squad. "Would you be so kind as to share a memory?"

      "Okay," Ikan replied. He placed his left hand on the side of Bruce's face, and held his right one out towards Melanie. He wouldn't just go ahead and touch her until she showed some form of consent.

      (If any of you take that last bit out of context I swear to God...)

    • (Nono you read right x) )

      Hugh nodded. "Hey, might be useful if they thought about giving it to you!!" Hugh said quickly about the lockpicking set. His neverending smile was spreading across his face as he giggled, and started washing Fionn's vest without even answering him. The rabbit just kept on talking about the set. "I wish I had had one back in Hideston, you know! Got trapped in an old bookstore... We had to destroy a wall to get Mira and I out of there alive."

    • ( *takes out of context* )

      "Wait, I thought Mira taught you, luv?" Zoe asked, confused.

      Melanie nodded, giving her consent. She knew how the process worked somewhat, having learned from Natalie when she had used her as practice for the very same power. Unfortunately, Nat's attempts were unsuccessful, so she didn't know how the process felt. This would be new to her.

    • "Well," June started, quickly thinking of how to keep her story straight. "You helped. Mira taught me some, but you helped really set it in."

      For a brief moment there was nothing, but then there was a flash, and Melanie was living the moment from Lidia's point of view. Every action and emotion felt as though she had done it herself. When the flashback was over and Ikan pulled away, Melanie would have the memory as though she had been there, and had done exactly what Lidia had done.

      "Be careful with that memory," Ikan warned. "It's not your own, even if it feels like it is."

    • "Mira?" Melanie asks, intrigued.

      "I'll be careful," Melanie says, nodding to Ikan. She stands up and walks toward the shelf where the book was stolen, Damien in tow. "This is where it happened, yes?" Melanie asks, assuming Bruce had followed as well. She knew it was, having remembered from the memory, but was asking in the event they'd give more info on it.

    • Hugh nodded and let out squeak that had the same meaning as a groan. "I-I know, Fionn! But even if this set represents something bad, there are still so many good ways to use it! Imagine we had a very important... let's say... umh..." Hugh stopped washing Fionn's vest. He actually hadn't really done anything to it yet, simply sinking in and pulling it out of the water, while he was talking. "... a book. Hidden in a sort of case that needs to be opened. This set would be useful! If your scroll in Vile Root was hidden by such ways, you would have used it to know about your powers, wouldn't you?"

      Hugh would appear some kind of shocked for a second. "But... But... What if it was all a test? If deep within you, you knew you had the power, wouldn't you crave for some info about it? Some things are meant to be hard to reach, though..." He sighed and shook his head. "... I guess yeah, the real test would be for you to find the key instead of opening the box. You're actually right." Hugh had made the whole thinking, mumbling to himself and speaking out loud at times, and he ended on that conclusion. "But this set is still important. Your parents gave it to you and it is more worth on sentimental ways than real utility."

    • Fionn would nod in agreement as Hugh reaches the conclusion of his argument. "Of course its important! I mean, if it wasnt I wouldnt carry it with me anymore... But at least yours will keep you warm right?" He asks to the rabbit as he gently wrings the vest.

      "Not quite, luv. She's the Mystery Elemental," Zoe says.

She then turns to Bruce. "What is The Soul's Guidance about may I ask?" she asks despite having Damien figuring it out as she speaks.

      "Jura!" Sarah says, jumping off her chair and hugging Jura's legs.

      "Sarah!" Jura says, kneeling down to pick up Sarah.

      "Jura, I specifically said to stay at the table!" Melanie says.

      "Yeah, but we were all curious as to what was going on over here," Jura says, struggling to hold Sarah. "Gosh, you've gotten heavy since I last saw you, Sarah..."

      "That's cause I've grown since then!" Sarah says.

      "I see," Melanie says. "Damien, do you think-"

      "Doubtful," Damien says. "To me it seems like the opposite," he adds, putting the book back.
      "You don't think..." Melanie says.
      "Possible," Damien says. "There have been reports of similar events from other squads."

      "True," Melanie says. She turns to Bruce. "Thank you for your time, Sir."
