PostSubject: Blue Mountain (before Wolfriders) RP    Tue Mar 11, 2014 4:15 pm


[Note: like the title says, this takes place in Blue Mountain some centuries before the Wolfriders arrive. Two-Edge has been born and raised, and is currently not in residence in his secret lair under the mountain. Tyldak has been given his wings. Egg, Brace and both Doors perform their functions in their stone-cold trance. The Chosen Eight are: Aroree, Yeyeen, Reevol, Kureel, Oroleed, Talno, Eresir and Hoykar - that is, all the canon ones. If you'd like to join us, just choose or make a Glider character that fits this timeline. I'm playing Winnowill and Kin plays Aroree - everyone else is still up for grabs - even Two-Edge, if you wish.]

Winnowill was sitting in one of the spacious halls of Blue Mountain. Behind her stood a tree - not a real tree, but a metalshaper's artistic masterpiece. Birds were singing in the branches. They were real birds, brought to her by the Chosen Eight. They never lived very long in the dark halls, no matter what her humans fed them. They were Winnowill's toys, and her objects of study. Often she practiced flesh-shaping on the fragile matter of their bodies.

She was holding a piece of bread, and tearing off crumbs to lure a shy sparrow closer. She had an image in her mind, of changing the bird's plumage into glorious rainbow colors, and then seeing if the other sparrows still identified it as one of their own. She'd played a similar game before, and noted that some species recognized their kin by looks, while others relied on the sounds they made.

Her body landed with ease and grace upon the stone slab of her mountain home.  Aroree paused and watched her bond-bird soar away to its own nest until its enormous body and wings were nothing more than a speck in the sky.  The only time she never felt truly alone was when she took to the skies with Littletrill, and when her shimmering blue eyes could see her friend no more, that loneliness began to creep back as it always did.


After a heavy sigh, the slender Glider walked into the stony corridors and halls that led through Blue Mountain with her capture of the day. Winnowill's requests for more various birds to toy with.  The routine of such measly chores grew so mundane that Aroree never acknowledged the cruelty anymore.  Living such a life of servitude was a cruelty in itself and led Aroree to become numb to it.


Now outside of Winnowill's chambers, she stood quietly at the doorway and watched her elder entertain herself with the small birds.  Clutched in the Glider's left hand was a small cage with more small various birds to add to her demented collection.  When Aroree finally spoke, her voice was just above a whisper.  "I have returned with your request, Winnowill...."  
to further amuse yourself with.... She kept the latter words quietly to herself, nor did she make eye contact as she entered the chambers.

Winnowill looked up, with a smile on her face that did not quite reach the eyes. "Thank you, Aroree." She took the cage, and placed it on the bench beside her. In the branches of the metal tree, the other birds' noised changed as they, presumably, conversed with their newcomer kind. Winnowill looked at the birds in the cage. "Just what I needed. These will do splendidly." She turned her eyes to Aroree again. "Did you see anything of interest while you were out there today?" She asked the Chosen. "Anything different from the usual, among humans or animals?" Winnowill would never admit, even to herself, that she could envy someone, yet she did sometimes wish she could fly out like the Chosen Eight. It had been a long time since Voll had last taken her on a flight riding Tenspan. (And it had taken her humans two days to comb out the tangles from her hair afterwards.)

Winnowill's words may have voiced her appreciation, but her voice lacked any truth to her thankfulness.  Her tone was chilling and void of any true emotion other than arrogance.  The chamber felt as chilling as the dark elf's tone, and more than anything Aroree wanted to flee and be done with Winnowill's company.  


She took a slow step back toward the archway of the entrance when Winnowill spoke again, turning her icy stare upon the Glider and asking her question with a lilt of suspicion within her voice. It was the same question every time she returned from a flight, as if Winnowill was expecting something different to be seen, or to happen.


Nothing was ever different, save for the change of the seasons...


With a soft sigh, Aroree averted her nervous gaze away from Winnowill and shook her head sadly.  "No, my lady Winnowill... nothing different to report.  The same as always.   The humans are about doing their daily duties and hunts, and the creatures below go about avoiding them..."


It was then Aroree's curiosity got the best of her, and after a nervous swallow, she drummed up the courage to ask.  "Is there something I should be searching for?"

"I see." Winnowill touched her chin with her hand for a moment, thinking. "You know the answer", she told Aroree as the Chosen asked her question. "As one of the Chosen Eight, you are to look for anything that could be a danger to us, or to the humans we have claimed as ours to protect. That is your duty as guardian of Blue Mountain." She paused, and stood up. "The errands I send you on are secondary to your main duty. You will be told what to look for. This time it was small birds, yesterday seeds for the plantshapers... you will be told if there is something to search for."

Aroree bristled by Winnowill's initial reply. Of course she knew what her duties were. She needn't be told as if she were a fledgling. They were the same day after day... Her spirits dropped even more. She had hoped maybe Winnowill had foreseen something perhaps in a dream, or other form of fancy, that led her to ask the Glider the same mundane question.


As she bit back her frustration, Aroree gave a polite, yet curt nod and sighed to herself. "Yes Winnowill, of course. Do you have any particular requests for the next day as I go out to hunt?"

Winnowill frowned, thinking for a moment. The birds' song was starting to annoy her. Maybe she should take away their voices while she did tonight's magic... Finally, she looked at Aroree. "A couple of ravens, or magpies, crows even - birds of that nature. And some butterflies, the largest you can find." She smiled, and added: "But do not think my request an obligation. Just a favor to a friend, if you have time."

(I made a Glider OC and a profile for Talno. Can you check them over, see if they are suitable for this RP?)

(I'm going to be lazy and use the rp sample for Aureen's first post.  tongue )

Aureen smiled as she ran her hands through the bowl that contained raw pieces of turquoise-colored gemstones that the humans of the Hoan-G'Tay-Sho tribe called sky-stones. She closed her eyes, for the sense that she used to study the structure of the gems was not a visual one. She was a rockshaper, and her hands told her all she needed to know. She picked up one piece, running her hands all over the rough surface. This was a good stone, and after her magical touch, it would be a gorgeous one.

Aureen's hands caressed the surface of the gem, and slowly it transformed into the shape of an egg. She pressed it between the palms of her hands, and it changed again, flattened, so that it was now a flat disc, round at the edges, shaped like the silhouette of an egg. She closed the stone in her fist, and when the fist opened again, the stone's color was deeper and purer. Satisfied, Aureen put it aside, and started looking for another good stone. She could spend a day like this, and often did.


----

Talno went through the kitchens of Blue Mountain like a whirlwind, grabbing a jug of wine from one surprised human, a loaf of bread from another, and a big piece of cheese from one of the tables. In this process, he spilled a number of dishes, and many more were wasted as the humans dropped them in surprise. Talno could not care less. He was out into the halls before the last dropped plate had ceased spinning. He was hungry, this was food, that was all that mattered. He sat down on a bench, and started eating, with manners no parent of his could have approved of. He hated mealtimes, hated routine, hated the endless meaningless conversations around the table of the Chosen Eight.

Aroree simply gave Winnowill a nod and forced a gracious smile before bowing slightly and retreating from her chambers.  Whether it be duties, or requests, they were all the same to the Glider.  Only the day, or the weather may prove a difference.


Since the day was growing late, she decided not to go out for another flight.  Perhaps a small meal before retiring to her own chambers and the comfort of her bed.  There was no rush to her pace along the long and winding corridors of the shaped mountain, and as her fingers carefully maneuvered her head piece to remove it from her head, Aroree paused at the faint sound of a chuckle.


She hated to feel as if she were spying on another, but such a lifting sound was rare to be heard within these long days amongst her kin.  Now peering into one of the private sitting rooms, she could see the source was Aureen, and obviously taking delight in her rock shaping skills.  For now, Aroree chose not to disturb her, but made a mental note to possibly find her friend even more unique stones to bring beauty to them by her simple touch.


Now making her way toward the dining hall, Aroree first noticed Talno, and silently hoped he wouldn't take notice of her.  By the look upon his face, he appeared to be in a most murky mood, to which Aroree did not wish to encounter.  But as she tried to quietly slip past him from behind, her foot came into contact with a random dish that was mysteriously left on the floor.  


Aroree didn't even dare look if Talno turned to notice her.  She simply kept her calm composure, bending down to retrieve the dish with a slight tremble in her hand.  "My apologies... one does not expect to stumble upon our eating-ware as if expected to eat from the floor like mongrels."  


Although scorn and belittling insults were not of her nature, Aroree played off the sense of irritation and annoyance in hopes Talno would in turn not show his own against her for her interruption to his meal.

Winnowill was already deep in though when Aroree left, thinking about the ways she would experiment on the birds Aroree had brought her. She opened the cage, and released the birds. They'd try to escape first, she knew, but they would not find a way out, and eventually, they'd come to her for food. On the bench beside her was a loaf of bread, and she crumbled some in her hand, soon getting the attention of the birds that had been around longer. To a casual onlooker, it might have looked a sweet picture: Voll's beautiful lovemate sharing bread with nature's creatures.

--

Talno looked up, annoyance in his eyes. "And one is not concerned with the locations of dishes, as such tasks belong to the kitchen humans." He answered. It was not that he disliked Aroree, it was just that he was finding it hard to like anyone these days. The inhabitants of Blue Mountain chafed each other in their small world, and no one's secrets and failings stayed secret for long. The atmosphere in the mountain was like a stagnant pond into which no new water flowed. It was an almost physical relief to get out. He could not understand those who never left, yet seemed content.

Aroree jerked slightly from the harsh tone in Talno's words.  Her initial reaction would have normally led her rushing out of the dining hall and putting as much distance in between her and his sorely mood as possible.  But what has that ever solved in the past?


After calming her startled nerves, Aroree quietly placed the fallen dish upon the table, taking a moment to briefly gaze upon her fellow Glider. She knew his irritation wasn't truly against her. Like herself, it was clearly the ever existing frustration that Aroree was feeling as well.  The endless centuries within the Blue Mountain was taking a serious toll upon them all, yet few like herself, felt they were about to tear out of their own skins.


There seemed to be no sense of purpose, nor did any of them realize how such a simple thing was the life blood of existence.


After a soft sigh, Aroree took a seat directly across from her companion.  She longed to take his hands within hers in hopes to offer some sort of comfort, but she knew Talno would flinch away and scorn at the action.  She hoped a more simpler approach of words would prove effective in calming his mood.


"I find myself not so tired as of yet, Talno... so I was thinking on taking an evening flight tonight..." She gave a slight shrug of her right shoulder, more out being nervous than anything.  "Some company would nice if you'd like to get out into the open air... stretch the wings.... see the stars?"


She braved looking into his scowling eyes and offered a soft smile. "Remember how we so enjoyed flying through the night when we were young?"

Talno was surprised by Aroree's change of tone. Some other Chosen, Kureel for example, would have continued to argue just for the sake of arguing, making a small thing into a personal insult. But Aroree was of gentler disposition. He did not move away when she sat down, just continued chewing on his meal, hoping she'd say whatever she was going to say, and then be on her way.

He raised one eyebrow at Aroree's invitation. It had been a long time he had ridden the winds with anyone just for fun. For big hunts, the Chosen often worked together, but an evening flight just to enjoy the air and the stars... well, it was a pleasure that hadn't featured in his life in a long time. Get out of the mountain? Yes, why not? He coughed a bit, then spoke: "You answer my hard words with unsuspected kindness. I am humbled." He said, trying to put into the words the smile he could not quite show on his face. As if the muscles there had forgotten how to smile.

"When we were young... anything seemed possible. No storm too fierce, no sunshine too burning..." he paused, "Yes, I'd like to feel just a drop of that again. I accept your invitation, gentle Aroree."

Aroree braced herself. Her breath was held tight in her chest, expecting Talno to spat her offer and call it a foolish notion. But when his tone softened and he accepted her invitation, the air in her lungs rushed out as she blinked in surprise. She was even taken back by the burst of excitement and joy his acceptance caused!


Not wanting to appear overly eager like a young impatient fledgling, Aroree contained her enthusiasm, yet blushed slightly that her friend even offered a brief compliment. Now rising to her feet, she stood tall and regal, feeling a newfound thrill that even added a proud stance within her spine. All for the sake of a fun, unplanned flight that would hopefully lift both of their spirits.


"Then finish your meal later, my friend..." She turned and began heading to the corridor. "Tonight, we invent new and daring tricks within the skies!" Aroree didn't wait. She hoped the need to catch up with her would give Talno that sense of excitement again!

It seemed to Talno as if a breath of fresh air had blown into the mountain when Aroree's whole demeanor seemed to change, as she stood straighter up and her smile could have outshone the stars. He dropped his food when she glided off, knowing the humans would clean up after him like they always did. Gliding as fast as he dared to do indoors, he bolted after Aroree, trying to catch up with her before she reached the exit to the outside. He caught up with her just as they reached the opening in the mountain wall. It led to a ledge of stone, the customary place for the Chosen Eight to stand on when they summoned their bond-birds for a hunt. It also offered a nice view down the mountainside, all the way to the shimmering Vastdeep Water. Talno was happy to notice that the night was mild and cloudless. The stars shone brighter than he'd seen them in a while, or maybe it was simply that he was seeing them differently.

"Good weather for a little sport", he told Aroree in a casual tone, as if there had been no contest about who got here first. They'd see who was truly faster soon, Aroree on Littletrill or he and his loyal Widewings.

Aroree was ever delightful that her spontaneous request worked. There was glint of mirth in her eyes when she glanced over her shoulder and saw that her companion was following just as fast to reach the outside landing to await their bond birds. The gust of wind was the first to greet to her, and Aroree decided she would have no use for her usual head covering normally worn during a flight. She wanted to feel the air currents this time...


Turning and giving Talno an approving nod, it was then Aroree realized it had been forever since she head her friend, or any of the other Gliders for that matter use the word "sport" in terms of a little challenging fun. Had the Gliders really sunk this low with lack of life?


She shook off the momentary sullen thought and gracefully leaped into the air with a shrill whistle. Her body turned in mid air, giving her companion hunter a playful wave just before Littletrill soared beneath her for its rider to take hold. Knowing words word never be heard during flight, Aroree cast a sending to her friend. "Better hurry, Talno! Or we will catch the best current before you even reach the clouds!"

Talno whistled also, and Widewings was close to follow Littletrill. Like his name suggested, the Giant Hawk Talno shared a bond with had wings wider than most of his kin. This gave Widewings more power in flight, but could be challenging also, especially when going against air currents.

Talno glided down to settle on his bond-friend's back, and they were off to chase after Aroree. **We shall show you both the true meaning of speed!** He sent back, and indeed they were soon almost level with their 'opponents'. Talno found himself laughing for the sheer joy of the chase. It was as if his youth had indeed returned.

The sound of Talno's laughter brought out Aroree's as well, and for that one glorious moment, it was if all the woes and gloominess of Blue Mountain had been completely forgotten.  Now bathed over by the double crescent moons above, the pair of great birds and their riders were simply drinking in the thrill of flight and it's absolute sense of freedom.


Knowing Widewings was indeed one of the fastest of the Glider bond birds, Aroree and Littletrill would have to prove crafty in their techniques if they would want to prove faster.  Just as Talno and his winged companion were about to reach her, Aroree shifted Littletrill's reins, rearing the giant hawk to arch back and suddenly dive beneath Widewings in one great big swoop in hopes to distract Widewings by the unexpected movement!


Aroree couldn't help but laugh into the wind as Littletrill swooped back up beside Talno and give out a challenge. "Let us touch the treetops!"  With that said, Aroree grabbed onto the flight rope attatched to Littletrill's harness and leaped off the great bird to soar into the air on her own, with only the rope to keep her soaring in the air with her bond bird.

Widewings made a startled croak when Littletrill got under him. He was not used to such maneuvres, usually it was the prey he had to outwit, not another Giant Hawk. But Talno's voice and touch soon calmed him, and he swooped in the opposite direction, a movement to get him ahead of the others.

Talno grinned at Aroree's new challenge. Soon he, too, was heading down, holding onto his flight-rope. He curled up his body to lessen the air friction, falling free and speeding the fall by gliding downwards at the same time. He was the first to touch a treetop, with Aroree just fractions of a second behind. **Race you to the Vastdeep!** He sent back a new challenge, gleefully.

Her fingers grazed over countless leaves and branches, and the thrill of being so dangerously close made Aroree slightly dizzy from the excitement. All it would take was one random thick branch to snag onto her garments, or thwack her against the head.... But the Gliders were excellently trained and skilled, as were their bond birds to keep an out for each other for anything threatening or unexpected.


Suddenly, it was Talno who made a surprising challenge, proving his previous sour mood was long forgotten. As he and Widewings raced for the vast deep waters, Aroree took just a moment to savor seeing the joy brought back to her friend's face. It worked.... even if for just one night... she and her companion found the simplicity of fun and brief happiness by doing nothing more than a random flight of playful antics.


With a tug to the flight rope, Littletrill swooped as Aroree soared upward and grabbed the harness. Both gave soaring chase at Widewings tail feathers. There was no need to win. Just flying and laughing was enough. "Challenging me to go fishing are you, Talno? Perhaps a double-fin is too big for Widewings to catch!"

Talno, in turn, whistled a command and Widewings responded, swooping low. Talno glided back to his harness, and together, almost as if of one mind, elf and bird headed for the wide expanse of the ocean. **Fishing? Not a bad idea...** he sent back. He and Widewings were the first to reach the ocean, and this gave him an air of smug satisfaction.

Aroree continued to give chase, keeping close to Widewings and its rider, yet taking the time to play against the water below as well.  Littletrill was feeling the enthusiasm of her rider and even tilted from side to side during flight to dip just the tip of her wings against the waves.  The rider couldn't help but slide to the side of the harness and dip her own fingers into the water as they flew along the ocean surface.


Seeing Talno took her fishing challenge seriously, Aroree now grabbed her claw weapon and made the attempt to catch anything in hopes to save some her pride.  With a trained throw, her weapon soared into the vast deep water, but after a few tries, there was still no successful catch.  It was far easier to fish during the day when one could see a school of fish below the water when they swam close enough to the surface!


With her frustration mounting, Aroree looked ahead to see if her fellow Glider was having any luck of his own.

Talno could not say, had he been asked, how he knew that the big swordfish was just under the surface. Something in the ripples of the water maybe, some hunter instinct honed so keen it didn't need conscious thought. He just knew, and at his command, Widewings plummeted down like a hunting eagle. The splash of water wet Talno's clothes, but he could not care less. They rose into the sky together, the fresh catch still wriggling in the Giant Hawk's talons. Talno laughed out loud, and sent at Aroree: **Victory is mine!**

Aroree would be a fool if she wasn't impressed by Talno's skill and tactics in the sky.  Where he had speed and strength, she had agility and grace.  In this game, his abilities naturally won out.  But there was no real sense of challenge, nor hurt pride that he was victorious.  The excitement and thrill of the hunt now returned in eyes was truly enough for Aroree to feel like the victor this night.


Her hands applauded for him wildly as the Glider held up his trophy just as Littletrill coasted beside Widewings while the last of life was spent from the fish with a few flips of its tail. **Marvelous catch, my friend!** Aroree mind cheered to him with genuine praise.  **I may be a good hunter upon land, but I'll never match your hawk's eye upon the vast waters!**


The normal routine for the Chosen Eight once a kill was made was to return immediately to their Blue Mountain dwelling for the prey to be prepared and stored before the kill would rot, but as Aroree looked back at the now small mound in the dark horizon that served as their home, her eyes winced at the thought of going back so soon.  Their hearts were finally soaring as their bond birds... so free and lifted of sorrow.... she didn't want to go back to the shadows and cold stone walls just yet!


She bit down on her bottom lip and glanced at her companion as he still admired his impressive catch.  Stars, Talno appeared so pleased and thrilled by their fun flight, he looked like a youth again.  Finally, Aroree drummed up the courage to offer another hunt of a different kind.  **I say we don't end our flight just yet, Talno... I have something else I need to hunt for, if you'd rather continue our jaunt for the night!**  She pointed back to the forest land, but where it was closely lined with the vast deep waters where little treasures lied upon the ground, washed up from the eternal waves.


**Aureen is need for more fancy and rare rocks to shape! The moons are full this night to find her some without the risk of humans intruding upon us!**

**We each have our special talents**, Talno sent back at Aroree. He knew she was right, and might even be able to admit she was the better of them on land. He was feeling strangely elated, almost carefree. Her suggestion of more things to do excited him. This was the most fun he'd had in a long time. But his duties intervened. He had caught a fish, and it should be taken to the kitchens while it was still fresh.

Unless...

**I have an idea. We've already filled today's quota of meat during our daytime hunts. No one will miss this fish. So, I think I could just leave it in the village of the humans, as a gift from the spirits. They'll appreciate it more, anyways." At his instructions, Widewings turned back towards the continent. **And then we can hunt for stones, if that is your fancy.**

Aroree watched him struggle for a moment or two, suspecting he may decide they should go back to Blue Mountain.  To her delight, Talno added another solution.

**That's a splendid idea!,** she nodded eagerly with a rush of relief that the night's fun was not about to cut short after all.   Littletrill followed Widewings with barely and guidance from her rider, and once they were above the human settlement, the large catch from the ocean was dropped to the ground.

They quickly headed toward the rocky cliffs where the rough beach lie below them.  The humans rarely came to this location since it was so difficult to reach by foot.  Once low enough, Aroree took the first leap from her bond bird and floated gently to the ground.  It was rough, with scattered large rocks and some weeds that tried to grow, but the terrain was flat. Still easy to see anything of interest for Aureen.

**There's still plenty of time before we must return.  Look slowly and carefully for any rock and shell treasure our friend will delight in shaping!**
