Lalaia

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

As the snow began to melt, so too did Lalaia’s nerves. It was still ridiculously cold in some areas. But the varying temperaments of the lands here made finding food relatively easy, especially with Carnán and her combined knowledge. Still, she was going stir-crazy. Her mind kept going back to the blind deer ruler in the north. Her plans couldn't yet come to fruition in their current state. Without a herd, or some sort of protection, they were vulnerable. And now... they had a child.

Lalaia turned to look over her shoulder. She expected her mate and Carmeilla to be following. Hopefully, they were satisfied with her decision. Well, Carnán at least. After all, didn't they already talk about it? The babe probably didn't understand which was fine. The large mare kicked at the dirt, reluctant. She didn't want to show weakness. This wasn't how it was supposed to go. But she kept telling herself that this helped her plans, not delayed them.

Without waiting for her family, the Vanner neighed loudly for Chastity.

Carnán

From rot come bloom

With the gradual retreat of winter's icy assault becoming apparent, Carnán found herself awakening somewhat. Spring had always been an important season to her culture, and emerald hues were wide with anticipation. It was a season of new growth... and a gateway for the younger generations to take the place of the eldest. How many, Carnán wondered, have completed their cycle within the Forest since she'd left? What new blooms were taking root and finding their place within her community?

For a brief moment, Carnán felt an ache in her chest.

Then, the pain faded as Lalaia's call reached her ears. The mare had been leisurely following her lover, taking a slower pace that would be more merciful upon their child as she hopefully led Carmeilla after the Vanner. A watchful eye would be had over the filly, and an occasional correction if her babe strayed too far, but Carnán was mostly lenient. Their child would never bloom from a fragile bud into a magnificent flower if she was forever sheltered and hidden from sight. She needed to experience the world for herself, mostly, even if that meant she had to make mistakes. Carnán would not keep the girl from tripping and falling, but the mare would be there to tend to the scrapes afterwards. The mare was not there to entirely dictate how her child would live its life, but rather to guide her when said guidance was needed.

One only had one life to live, after all, and it was ultimately their decision what to do with it. Carnán had dedicated hers to her people and her religion but now, as she mused about it, she realized she now also dedicated it to Lalaia and Carmeilla.

And, to be honest, Carnán didn't mind that at all.

Carmeilla

She had finally made it to a stand without falling over. The newfound weight on unsteady limbs providing the filly a way of maneuvering. It was only the slight nudges of her mother, Carnan, that kept her on trail. But of course curiosity continued to pull her away. A butterfly fluttered just out of reach. Teasing Carmeilla to chase after the flurry of colors that brought a huge smile to black lips. Happiness an ever lasting feeling that overwhelmed any other emotions.

Several bounds forward carried her to her other mother, Lalaia's, side. Head bumping the large mare in the process went a sound of joy. She couldn't stop herself. Everything became a game at this point. Gaze falling onto the lush grass, a breeze blowing through her mane, the babe lowered her head to inhale the scents. Tickling just the entrance to create a series of sneezes. Every noise jumped her back. Falling with clumsiness onto her rear. Did this break her excitement? Nope! She stood once more and trotted in circles around both of her mothers.

Allona

This might be strange to tell you
And I swear I'm not a whore

She brought herself upwards, her eyes narrowed into slits. Her claws were unsheathed as she found herself at the borders. She didn't bother with changing her appearance. As an old woman, Allona figured that it mattered little if she was caught or not. After all, she lived on the edge.

When push came to shove, she was far more interested on the fact that she had made it to this advanced age in the first place. She didn't care if she lived or died and that was the reason for her next movement. Her stomach growled, her eyes narrowed into slits. She didn't bother to use the trees to her advantage. She didn't bother to use the weather for what it was worth. She didn't care if it was cold or warm. Her tail was sticking out straight for balance as she kept her legs spread wide.

Her hackles were raised as she tried to keep herself from the back of the three horses. Muzzle was wrinkled, her head lowered to protect her throat. The time that she had been away from being in a realm was taking its toll on her.

Maybe it hadn't been the best move to remove herself from Julianna but at the same time, did she truly care? Allona kept her ears pressed against her head as she rushed forward, her jaws parted to prepare herself to make a bite. Attempting to jump directly upon the back of the foal with her unsheathed claws, Allona simultaneously also attempted to bite the back of the neck. Her canine attempted to dig into the mane and muscle of the foal's neck. She was aiming for the middle of the neck - not too close to the shoulders and not too close to the back of the head.

Lalaia

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

It felt like they had been waiting for eons. Perhaps it was just that the wind was a little chilly. The trees did little to shelter where they stood upon the borders. Where was the elk woman? Her senses were reaching out for signs of her.

And thank the gods for that.

What they found instead was the sound and smell of a predator. She turned to the sound to see it rushing at her babe. Said leopard was going for her vulnerable child! Her ears pinned to her head and she showed her teeth in absolute rage. Her eyes narrowed on the beast as head angled downward. Lalaia would attempt to rush the feline from her right side, forming a T with Allona as the top. She aimed to rear at the last second and crash the bottom of her chest into the right ribcage of the threat to her child. Simultaneously, her rearing legs attempted to smash downward into the top of her spine, putting her whole upper weight into her legs. ”Not my child, maláka..”

RE: Give Alms

Dvir had been wandering the borders as was his usual day when he heard the call for Chastity. Curious he moved closer. Anyone who called to Chast could talk to him as well. What he came upon made his eyes narrow in anger. 3 prey animals and one predator. It seemed the predator was going after a baby! In no circumstance was that alright. His ears pinned themselves to his head in anger. His teeth her shown for intimidation. He lowered his head so his rack was on full display as well as protecting his throat. His legs planted against the grass and dirt beneath him. He aimed to get within 5 feet of them coming from the opposite side of Lalaia (though he didn't know her name) in a T formation with Allona at the top and he was on the left side.

"I suggest you get your ass out of here! These three are under my protection! Leave and don't come back or you will meet your end here." His words were deep and he hoped sounded threatening. He didn't know who these three were but if they came for Chast then they were friends.

Carmeilla:


Carmeilla
Hooves stomped irradictly over the grassy plains as they waited. Her attention span didn't last long on one thing for long. Even the chilly winds wrestling her mane caught focus to the point it amazed the young babe. So many distractions, only one really brought a new sense of something different. Fear. Freezing in sight of the predatory Feline, gaze widened with the need to flee.

The dark mass had soon flung itself in her direction. Claws wide and teeth shown with the attempt to kill. Carmeilla's only instinct at this point was to run. Though the size of a five month old, her senses were still pretty much in learning status. She was barely alive for a week and already someone was attacking her. With all the strength she could muster, she turned a hundred and a eighty degrees to where her back now faced the leopard. Back legs kicking out as she pushed herself off the ground and forward five feet in a leap from where she originally stood. The filly was attempting to escape the situation all together. Ears straining and arching forth with the arrival of another and sounds from her mother behind her. A stressed whine befalling her lips with such movements. What a lovely way to start life, huh?

○ ❖ ♜ STAFFNOTE ♜ ❖ ○
Greetings, Yavania roleplayers!

Pardon my intrusion, but in a spar you must choose between an offensive or defensive spar type, not both. Therein self defense and escape cannot be paired with dominance, death, maim, or hostage (and etcetera).

Staff believe you meant this to be an escape post since Carmeilla did not attempt to maim Allona and instead attempted to flee. As such, her previous post will count as escape, not maim.



Now, you have two options for escaping a spar. They are as follows:
    1. You must post two consecutive times. You try to run. They may try to stop you and, if so, you try to run again. They may then try to stop your attempt to flee again. A judge will then judge whether the escapee has “won” or “lost” the escape attempt if the roleplayers involved cannot come to a decision on the matter.

    2. You request a dice roll here after posting an escape attempt. Die will be rolled for both the escapee and the attacker — bonus points included — to determine whether they escape or must stay and fight.

Please edit your spar post to either include “escape (1/2)” or post to the above request thread once you’ve decided.

Allona

This might be strange to tell you
And I swear I'm not a whore

As she leapt, her claws were unsheathed and she was in the air. Her jaws closed upon nothing but air as her body (her right rib cage) was hit by the chest of the mare. She fell to the dirt, her body hitting against the pine needles of the cedar trees. Her eyes narrowed as she rolled to her left, avoiding the full hit against her body from the hooves. She wasn't able to fully dodge, however, the hooves of the horse hitting against her right rib cage in a bruising impact. She wasn't even sure if it meant that she had broken bones or not. Aggression came, the thrill of the fight fueling her. Pain was a welcome thought, the adrenaline that it offered giving her a release of euphoria. Durable as she was, she was able to work with part of the pain, granting her the ability to return to her paws. Her legs were spread for balance, her claws unsheathed as they started to dig into the dirt of the cedar valley.

Hackles were raised, her head lowered to protect her throat. She ignored the roar of the male deer to leave this place.

She was a predator. She was merely doing what she was built to do and they wish to condemn her for eating? It was laughable and stupid. Her ears were pinned against her head as she chased after the foal. In order for her to do so, she had turn 180 degrees, her tail used for balance as she gave chase. Her jaws were parted with her muzzle wrinkled. Keeping her narrowed eyes upon her target, she attempted to reach out with her right forepaw in an attempt to grab the foal's right hind leg. Her motive was simple - she wanted to trip her into falling. Simultaneously, Allona attempted to bite the left thigh of the filly. She might be old but she had a lot of experience in fighting and hunting.

She would not go down without a large fight.

Lalaia

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

Despite hitting the feline woman, she still gave chase to her babe. Her heartbeat raced, panic seeping into her every vein. She agilely tried to pursue the leopard. She would try moving in an arc counter-clockwise on Allona’s left in order to try ramming into her again. Her aim was for Allona to again become the top part of a T as the horse ran full-force into her ribcage with her body. Her chest or upper legs might be the things to hit into her, but it was her weight she hoped could dislodge or smash the woman. Her legs couldn’t plant themselves because of her intended attack, but her head was lowered and she kept close attention on where her footing was amongst the valley’s grass and leaves.

Her eyes narrowed, ears pinning in anger. Yes, the predator was doing as predators did, but to her child. The situation was so fearful that the normally proud Lalaia couldn’t even think about what Carnán was doing or the fact that the elk man said they were under his protection. She welcomed his help, but she’d hate herself if she couldn’t protect her own child, as the proud woman would feel was implied.

Again, however, she wasn’t actually thinking of that right now. Only Carmeilla and what she could possibly do to protect her. Simultaneous to her attempted ram, Lalaia shook Cinders from her coat in hopes they would fall on the attacker and cause some sort of damage if they did. She showed her teeth with an intimidating whinny. ”Run Carmeilla! Keep running! Don’t look back!”
