So, here it is! This is my first stab at a story folder, and I hope not to disappoint. Smile

There will be other, more specific OOC threads... locations, cast of characters, probably a music thread, etc. This one, however, is for anyone who wants to comment, or ask questions, or just say "Hi" now and then! So please feel free!

As for stories, well, I've got Azure's intro to finish up, and then there's Tenball's tale. Then it'll be time to delve into Ebon's backstory. Cool

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

Thanks, and congratulations to yourself as well~! Very Happy For some reason I thought your folder was older, then I got to looking around at who my folder neighbors were, as it were lol

Cheers~!

Thank you both! Smile Parts I and II were written years ago but never posted, so I'm glad they held up well. The bulk of Part III was originally written as a dream sequence (which appeared in Old Ghosts & Vengeance), so I just had to make sure they matched. From here on, though, it's all new.

I have tweaked part III, though, changing the sub-title from "Hope" to "Found" and editing the end a bit.

I took a break from Ebon in "Origin" to shift the focus onto Azure for a bit, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things with Part IV ("Lost") in the next week or so.

My oh, my! Your Origin story is tragic yet beautiful! It is a wonder Ebon is as collected as he is today. I look forward to more!!!

Thank you for sharing!! But I must say... I am still crying! I may need a few minutes to collect myself!

Regarding The fire within...

Beautifully written. I feel pain for Azure missing her Papa, and the need to play Ebon at home more often. Smile

I agree. Smile

In a setting where things can be so easily insta-fixed, seeing a mute character is a thing of beauty and rarity. I do not see many mute individuals in real life, so to see Phen signing to her daughter was so endearing and proves love knows no limitations. ‘The whispering sound of Phen’s voiceless laugh’ is such a beautifully descriptive line, and I imagine it is also an equally beautiful sound. Smile

I can’t wait to see more.

It's been a while since I added anything to "Origin" but that's changing. I've started Part V, this one entitled Hunted, and it continues on directly from the end of Lost. We see Ebon's first use of his psionic gift, and he finds an unexpected ally. There's more to come with this section of the story, but I wanted to post what I've got so far. Very Happy

I have ideas for the current chapter of "Origin" in my head, but haven't got them quite together yet.

In the meantime, the saga of Ebon's not-so-dead sister from another reality and her her arrival in our Rhy'din has ended on a positive note. Smile

The "Vacation Time" thread is, of course, not being posted in real time... they will be back from vacation this coming Sunday, 1/8, but I plan to leave the thread open for Ebon, Doran, Phen, Azure (though she likes her journal Smile ), and/or Sylva to continue posting what they saw and did during those three weeks. Very Happy

If anyone reading this has characters in Mt. Yasuo that might interact with the Ilnarens during their stay there, reach out. Smile

For the folks in Sylva's life! I was going to pm these separately but I am going to cheat and do it here!

To the people on this list they are going to find boxes addressed to them in various colors, ribbons, and good lord the tape. There was a lot of it.

For Ebon, Gory, Velen, and Tenball
Each gentleman will receive a vest of a color Sylva has seen each of them in often**. Tenball will not get a vest but rather a festive scarf to hopefully keep him and his eyestalks warm!


For Maggie, Rhi, Collie, Phen, Pearl, Azure, and Oliva
Each lady will receive a summer dress crafted of a curious fabric*. They are colored different and much like the fellas gifts, in colors she has seen each lady wear often.**


*the curious fabric has a primary color that carries other lighter/dark shades that moves and shifts as the fabric itself is moved. It feels cool but otherwise feels like silk to skin. The vests, scarf, and dresses are all made of this fabric.
** Sylva's guess to someones favorite color (please feel free to use this to pick a color for the gift)

Thief! Stealing my idea Smile

I wish you could have seen the 30 minute conversation with Mallory's player today as I tried to figure out how old Sapphire actually is versus what age I've been playing her at -.-

I can imagine.

Speaking of figuring stuff out, I need to determine how long (and how long ago) Eregor lived in Faerie. Wink Your post reminded me of that.

I have decided to retitle a couple of threads so that the handful of people reading this thread Wink can separate stories happening "now" (that is, current at time of posting, give or take a few months) from historical backstory.

You can see the "Times Past" indicator on Origin and A Beholder's Tale.
