[Lalaia] Enchanted

Carnán

From rot come bloom

Bewitch'd was she, utterly taken with the towering giants that far surpassed her height and stretched upwards to brush the sky with green-laden boughs. Her pace was a slow, measured walk as her skull tilted upwards to admire the gargantuan trees and emerald hues shimmered in delight. Her Forest did not possess greenery of such magnitude, but the simple crunching of leaves underfoot and the chill of fall's air was enough to plant a seed of nostalgia in her gut. Yet, Carnán managed to force it to the back of her mind for now.

She had things of more import to focus upon, such as spreading the beliefs of the Forest. Though the mare had been temporarily separated from her equine companion, she worried little. Lalaia could care for herself, much like Carnán could. Plus, she mused languidly, her first impression in this land was not the worst by a long shot. The cool metal of her newest acquisition, a silver and ebony bracelet sat comfortably 'round the pastern of her front left leg. It was, Carnán assumed, a good omen to have found such a charming treasure left alone in the middle of the wilderness with no scent of a previous owner clinging to it.

Ignorant was she to the gift of divination magic that the jewelry happened to grant her.

Other magics also wove its way through her veins, coalescing in the form of sprouting buds via green-paw with every other step she took. Even as she slowed to a stop, however, the woman remained oblivious to it due to her skyward gaze. Instead, Carnán rested where she stood contentedly and took a deep breath of the crisp air to filter through the vaguely familiar scents. Emerald hues took on a faraway glaze, and she couldn't help but lightly question her own decision to depart from the Forest. Were they doing well without her guidance?

She could only hope, for Carnán had come too far to turn back now.

Lalaia

She's a dwelling place for demons, she's a cage for every unclean spirit

Lalaia raced the wind. Black and white mane flew out behind her. Its freedom was not unlike the woman's--wild, fast, free. She threw her head to get the hair out of her face with a happy snort. There were trees ahead. The mossy and leafy smell of an autumn forest. Twas not that scent that brought her forth, of course. It was the smell of Carnán.

Her hoofbeats turned from thunder to the patter of rain as she slowed to a trot. Her large body weaved around trees searching for the girl. She found the smaller mare upon her discovery of jewelry. Lalaia would attempt to come up behind her. Identify told her the item was magical, though faint from its first use. "You found an item of value there." Lalaia smirked, head attempting to butt against Carnán's. Sense simultaneously told her Carnán herself held power. That would be helpful for the grand future the flirtatious and dominant mare had in mind. Lalaia was clearly clairvoyant already. These newfound powers were assumed to be as such.

Carnán

From rot come bloom

With all of her hooves planted firmly upon the earth, tremorsense had little trouble activating for the first time. Instantly, Carnán's ears pricked and her expression morphed into one of surprise at the foreign feeling that accompanied its activation. Chestnut skull twisted to investigate, brows raising out of intrigue before her expression melted into something more pleasant and welcoming than shocked at the sight of the familiar mare approaching. Emerald hues, naturally soft in appearance, would fondly watch her companion as the woman's head bumped against her own. Even as she responded to the Vanner's words, Carnán would attempt to reciprocate the action.

"Have I?" Lilted tones spoke bemusedly, brow raising once more inquiringly with a curious tilt of her head as sense would activate for the first time and offer Carnán a vague notion that Lalaia possessed magic of sorts.

The sudden knowledge caught Carnán off guard, but not for the reasons that others might have assumed. The idea of magic was not unfamiliar to her, so why be bothered by the faint idea that Lalaia had it? It was as likely as it was unlikely, and either way it had no direct effect on Carnán so she offered it no more thought than a brief acknowledgement. Instead, the chestnut mare was more taken aback by the fact that she suddenly just knew the potential that flowed through her companion's veins.

Intrigued but unfazed, Carnán instead devoted her attention entirely to the other woman as she awaited an answer.

Lalaia smirked. The mare danced flirtingly around her companion, her flank brushing against her all the while, if allowed. ”I can’t quite explain my powers, love. I just know. It has some sort of enchantment upon it.” In truth, this sensation was new to her. She couldn’t explain how the item was magic, it just was. Hopefully it wasn’t cursed. She had done a couple ‘exorcisms’ in her time back home. Her uncertainty and confusion were waved off as her previously-thought clairvoyant powers becoming stronger. Perhaps her dainty new friend amplified them somehow.

She looked Carnán up and down, briefly. Such a sweet-smelling horse. Not sweaty and lusty like the arrogant males she was used to. Ah, but it was probably just the flowers she always busied herself with. Flowers were interesting indeed, as all plants were. Lalaia really only knew those with hallucinogenic or alcoholic potential. Carnán could perhaps teach her more, yes? Stopping at her back, the black and white steed would attempt to playfully rest her head in the crook of her spine. ”Can you be a dear and tell me more about those herbs you love so much?”

Lalaia always played for advantages. And Carnán was her biggest yet.

RE: [Lalaia] Enchanted

Carnán

From rot come bloom

Lalaia's movements were taken in stride, her hooves calmly planted against the earth still as Lalaia's words filtered into the chestnut mare's ears. The answer was sufficient for her, though vague enough to bring about more questions that she found little reason to voice. A hum, tuneless and meant for acknowledgement rather than anything remotely musical, rose from her throat as she bobbed her head gently in understanding. Perhaps, then, Lalaia's apparent magic had something to do with sensing the hidden potential within the objects around them?

Though unaware, or perhaps uncaring, of the Vanner's inspection of her, Carnán was still unable to ponder the thought for long before the comfortable weight of Lalaia's skull rested upon the bow of her spine.

Emerald hues blinked quietly, yet Carnán tolerated it like she tolerated many of Lalaia's antics. The mare saw no harm in them, after all, so why discourage her companion's oft amusing behavior? No, Carnán instead spent her time mulling over the request her black-and-white companion had made. Unfortunately, for Lalaia perhaps, the woman hadn't specified exactly what she'd wanted to know. So, Carnán was more than ready to offer all she knew of the flora she so fondly worked with. Their fleeting beauty was a thing to be shared with all, even as they wilted and turned to rot that would feed the sprouts to come.

"Of course, brònach.1 " The term of affection felt strange on Carnán's tongue, yet it was in a way she didn't mind at all. "Flowers have many appearances, and scents, and favorable conditions to grow within. Some last long, others only fleetingly blooming. Some are highly toxic to we, and to many other species as well. Some are edible, and others can even be used in the treating of wounds or the curing of ailments both physical and mental."

She started off practical, offering basic knowledge that could easily be expanded upon if Lalaia showed interest in a particular subject. Carnán was not used to teaching, unless the preaching of her beliefs counted, but it seemed easy enough. With the important parts briefly covered, and open to expansion, she instead delved into the lesser known and practiced uses.

"Every flower is capable of being cultivated, given the right conditions. Grown by hoof or paw or claw or hand, they can serve the same purposes. Decorative, mostly. Pleasant fragrances are sought after as much as pleasing appearances. They were used to brighten homes and set the restless at ease. They also have another purpose, though I have found few beyond the Forest who were aware of this and used it often. "

Carnán paused briefly, head tilting as she gathered her thoughts.

"Normally, it is seen in a positive light when one offers another a flower or, perhaps, a group of them. We of the Forest, however, know that a flower's meaning runs much deeper than the shallow roots that rest near the surface. There are flowers, of course, whose meanings when given to another are romantic in nature. But there are flowers that can mean a variety of things, such as compliments or unspoken emotions and feelings. The striped carnation is a sign of rejection, for example, and amaryllis means great beauty or worth beyond beauty." Carnán's lips tugged upwards as she continued, hoping that Lalaia found a use for what Carnán divulged. "Many flowers can have what one would call 'darker' meanings as well. You could directly insult another with an outwardly pleasing bouquet and leave them none the wiser if they've no knowledge like I and now you... Or perhaps wish great 'misfortune' upon them such as death with little repercussion. "

Though Carnán didn't consider death a misfortune at all. It was a shame, she briefly mused, that others did.

The Vanner listened with ears perked. It wasn’t exactly what she wished for, but it was still quite interesting. An entire language was what Carnán was suggesting, all under root and stem. Innerly, she wondered what the lily (was it a lily?) she tried bringing to Carnán might have meant. Would the mare forgive her if it was an accidental insult? She sought to learn the flower linguistics at a later date. It was nonetheless fascinating now, but the mare had remedy in mind.

She waited until her companion was finished then would inquire. ”Tell me more about using herbs for ailments and illness?” Though presented as a question, one might find the Oracle’s tone demanding. It couldn’t be helped. Lalaia was dominant in nature. What’s more, she was far too used to being given whatever she asked for. Well, almost. True freedom and individuality had to be taken. The Gypsy would seize what she desired now and that was that.
