Entered the forest to escape her rainy homeland and catch some sun.

Previously 10.5.16

Enjoyed her last rut day in the company of several peers, including but not limited to Mairine, Sixth (feral sambar stag), Qaazi, Blodeuwedd and notably, Juliet, who Bijoux remembered from the other day and decided to spend some time in her company.

Moved off toward the playground later after getting tired of lounging around with the group, and spent a great deal of time with Juliet there. Eventually took her home.

Previously (8.18.16)

After treating Kerosene's wounds yesterday and giving them a thorough lecture about going into fights in their condition (which felt weird because she's scolding a Deity in her world for fuck's sake), returned to the forest today to both check on how they were doing and visit in general. First thing noticed Laidli down by the pond, but thought little of it for now. Kept the scolecophagus in mind for later before heading toward where she scented Tig and various others. Found Kerosene there too and after doing some checking around, sat down.

Noted how anxious Tig appeared to be, and that Thais and Gunnarr looked roughed up. Was tempted to ask about what happened but got caught up in soothing Tig and kept her nose out of it for once.

Eventually after a short nap, decided to do some sniffing about and came upon an injured Laidli. Didn't realize it was she who had attacked Gunnarr and Thais but realized with her injuries there was a good chance she got confronted at some point. The Waldgrave stared her down from behind a tree not far off, bearing oversized fangs until the other got up to acknowledge her. Engaged almost right away with the worm, knocking into her with the heavy force of a magic shield. Ran after her with claws blazing as she slammed the worm around the forest as if attempting to finish her off.

She began to grow tired however, and after chasing the worm almost in a circle, staved her from the Drais group with added ferocity until the beast ascended a tree. Spat in finality at the creature, as the chimera was unable to climb, vowing to finish her off next time. Returned, scuffed, to Tig and the group before flopping down to rest.

Investigated Llyr at some point out of pure curiosity.

Previously (7.1.16)

Started her day by dropping by where she thought she scented tig and found him with the drais family. congratulated the new parents and happy to see that everything seemed to go well with the birth for them. noticed kerosene nearby and went to talk to them as they felt out of sorts to the old chimera.

ended up dispensing some advice to the deity regarding children that was similar to what she'd told them when they were having trouble with jasper. hoped in some ways that it was useful before going off to check out the forest in the twilight. enjoyed the serene and colorful atmosphere of the forest sunset. noticed a ross at some point but he seemed out of sorts. though concerned, the waldgrave opted to give him space. wandered for a while until she found rooh! enjoyed some play time with rooh, happy to see her in brighter spirits and apparently hitting a growth spurt. sat down to cuddle with her.

was also approached by tig later. gave the youth some cuddles and reassurances about the safety of his family, that she'd keep an eye out when she could (not that she wasn't already planning to......). got offered some cake from the collector. eagerly accepted because she's got a horrible sweet tooth. wolfed that down pretty fast. then rooh left. :^(

moved herself and tig down the pond to soak their peets for a while. greeted thais when she came by, wondering if she'd join but understood when she didn't. gave her a nod before they parted, and she and tig remained in the pond.

after some time, noticed a youth standing at the shore of the pond. got up and went to greet him, but he quickly darted off from her. she wasn't about to push a kid like that, so she just gave him a couple bows to show she meant no harm, but ultimately returned to soaking with tig.

later, at tig's behest, went to keep a very soggy and sad looking ross company. as always expressed inner concern for the boy but unsure of how to help him. just kept him warm alongside tig until she had to return to her world for the night.

Previously (6.25.16)
first into the forest today, greeted talla in passing then found two kiddos by themselves. greeted them and played with one (shelby) while the other seemed content to stay on their own, despite bij's worry about them doing so. still, continued on with the little wolf cub.

stayed with her for a while until she went over to her tree to check her supplies. noticed some stranger loitering there. proceeded to sit while she took stock and kept an eye on them. snapped when he made hostile gestures at her, including rearing. wasn't afraid to reach out and smack him. wouldn't be coaxed from her spot by him after that. refused.

glad when jay showed up, but she had something to deliver so let her do so before she came back. watched the sanguine take her stand next to the tree while the stranger remained pacing and staring. eventually moved because jay wanted to show her something and trusted her seals would keep her items safe. returned to the tree after a while and jay went on her own way.

found shelby again, engaged in a little more play with her, then sat. eventually joined by niriya (from a distance) and ross. when ross moved to sit with niriya, bij went over to introduce herself and sit alongside them while keeping a close eye on shelby nearby (who wouldn't move bc presumably player was afk). a lazy afternoon but she enjoyed it. moved back over to shelby once ross made his leave and joined by niriya not long after.

continued sitting with them both until shelby disappeared and returned, and then it resumed until niriya too had to take her leave. cuddled by ross at some point in there. sent jay to give thais a satchet of herbs to help her. stayed in her spot until shelby moved off on her own and the waldgrave was left on her own.

did eventually move when she was alone and went to the corner in the ruins she tends to favor after dropping by jay to check on her. was found once more by ross and cuddled with the myling who was bleeding from the nose. wondered what happened to him but didn't question it for now. eventually left for her home once ross moved along.

Thank you for asking nicely

Thank you for asking nicely now, but I wish you were that pleasant about it the first time instead of being so passive aggressive. I will move the gals for you since you came back to ask nicely. Try to be aware of your tone next time, and that you do not own this spot in the same way that I don't.
