Children of the Mace
Okay, let's try this again, properly. We will do the RP on this thread, but to discuss it we will use this thread. How does that sound? :) Now here's a recap, as far as I can peice together:
The harsh winter wind pierced through fur. I remember that from birth, and I do not know why. That day in the winter, my sister and I were born. Not even a season old then, and we shivered.
Today marks the start of winter, and the penetrating winds have returned. I do not feel it. And that's how this story begins. Down at the Mess next to my sister. Our father arrives late as peep at him through the corners of our eyes.
Komet : "Mornin'."
Sunstripe : The old badger sat down at his chair, grumbling under his breath about something or other.
Sunstripe: *Sunstripe just shrugs it off*
Komet: *He tosses another one*
Sunstripe: *Sunstripe's eyebrow raises, watching his son throw pebbles*
Komet: *He stops with a feeling of eyes burning into him. When it's clear, he slips another one into his palm and throws it under the table at a hare walking by*
Sunstripe: *The badger chuckles, his midriff heaving*
Komet: Komet whistles and twitches his nose to his sister to indicate something, but she gives him a solemn look, denying him. He stares at his father with no intent but to just stare.
Sunstripe: He stares back, grinning slightly.
Komet: His mouth curls into a grin also, as if it was contagious.
Starflash : *kicks a pebble at Komet's leg* *I finally start to get into it and throw a pebble at Sunstripe*
Komet: *Another pebble is slung, but this misses Sunstripe and hits a hare on the leg* "Hi Starflash, I was thinkin' of pesterin' the ol' windbag to go outside!"
Komet: He turns to his father "Father, can we go outside? Maybe out of this mountain~? Please~?!
Sunstripe: "Can't you keep yourselves entertained on the cobbler lawns?"
Starflash: "No.... it's boring. I want to go outside...."
Sunstripe: The Badger Lord sighed. "Fine. Ardoc, go with them." he said, calling to a haremaid in a red cloak.
Komet: "Ugh... Why does she have to go?"
Starflash: "Yes!!!" she added in a whisper to her brother, "I'm sure we can lose Ardoc..." *she looks at Sunstripe to make sure he didn't hear*
Sunstripe: "Because you need a guide and a guard. You're nobility. High-quality targets to assasination."
Komet: "I thought otherbeasts didn't know I existed for all this time. Whoops, I was wrong!"
Starflash: she rolled her eyes. "I know how to defend myself. I have my fists and I'm very good at boxing, you know."
Sunstripe: "They don't. But now that you're going outside, they do."
Starflash: "We won't let anyone see us, and anyway, who would be out there?" She started toward the exit. "Come on."
Komet: "I'm sure we'll be fine, I guaratee."
(now, on with it!!!!!!!!!!)
