[P] [M] {Draconis} Some Things Cannot Wait

How's the Craic?


It was the middle of the night, and Finlay was pacing around the inside of the den he shared with Draconis. He couldn’t sleep, so… he was pacing around the den to tire himself out. It seemed like a good idea. But he felt uncomfortable. More than normal. He shrugged it off as it was due to all the weight he was having to carry around. Being in disguise as a diminutive woman made carrying the weight of babes a bit of a challenge. Though Finlay wasn’t sure if that was due to the small size, or if this was just an overall pregnant lady thing. It probably was a bit harder due to his size to be frank. He always had to do things the hard way didn’t he?

Walking up to a small concave pit in the den he used condense to fill it up with water. He gave a tired sigh before taking a lap of liquid. How much longer did he have to pace? His legs hurt like hell, his paws hurt like hell, his belly felt weird… Wait.. what?

Finlay paused for only a moment looking into the pool of water before the beginning stages of labor began. Tongues provided him the following less than graceful and loud exclamation ”OY LAYNO!! What in the world just came out of his mouth!? WHEN IN THE WORLD DID HE LEARN UKRAINIAN!? Why was this coming out now!? Surprise and panic set in him for a brief moment, surely leaking through the link he had with Draconis. Finlay had to force himself to push the freaky incident aside because uh… the babes were not going to wait for him to figure crap out. They were coming. NOW.

Taking a deep breath to gather his bearings he waddled his way over a few feet to some spare furs that laid on the floor of their den. He didn’t want to ruin their bed. The babes had to come out of him… so surely it wasn’t going to be pretty. He laid down atop the spare furs and took as calm of breaths as he could manage. He had no clue what he was doing… he was just listening to his body at this point. Reaching out via Link because his mouth couldn’t form the words, Finlay attempted to speak to his mate. He was scared, (something surely being shared via their link) and wanted Draconis near him. ”Draconis! Wake up! The babes are coming!” Being the middle of the night he wasn’t sure if his mate was still asleep… even past his earlier cursing. Whatever the case… he couldn’t wait any longer. The babes wouldn’t wait any longer.

oc note: Finlay is a diminutive female version of himself. 28 inches tall and 180lbs. He smells like a female version of himself, along with his Pheromones and Draconis.

oc translation:
Oy Layno is Ukrainian for 'Oh shit'

Oc note: Marissa and I have both taken a babe and have chosen to not adopt out for this particular litter. Leaving 3 stillborns. Marissa's babe application shall be created soon. She has been very busy.





Finlay is diminutive in size for a male tiger. He wears a simple silver earring on his right ear and a simple silver ring on his right front paw. Due to Pheromones he always smells like a blend of cedar, clove, and vanilla.

Finlay is rude, and loud, and very opinionated. He also has a foul mouth. His thoughts, words, speech, etc. do not reflect my own. <3

RE: [P] [M] {Draconis} Some Things Cannot Wait


He'd been sleeping off and on. It more of a light doze than an actual full rest. Every few hours, he'd open his eyes to see that Finlay had continued to pace. His head was resting against his crossed front legs, observing him for a second. He made sure that he still seemed to be asleep, his eyes never leaving the form of the other tiger that paced. He could tell that he was uncomfortable but there was nothing that Draco could do to help soothe that. He didn't have some miraculous power that enabled him to do so. He didn't think that there was any magic that would be useful to help ease the pain of pregnancy. He supposed that was merely the torture of being female and bearing children.

His head jerked up when he heard the scream of a different language fall from Finlay's lips. He stared at him, uncertain if he had actually known that language or not. He could see the emotions that filtered across his mate's face. But he couldn't tell if those emotions had to do with the pregnancy or because of use of a different language that Draco didn't know if he actually knew or not.

But that question would have to wait for an answer when Finlay's panicked filled voice called to him. Draco wasn't concerned with the fact that Finlay hadn't realized that he'd been awake for a majority of the time, merely watching him pace. Quickly, the male tiger got up to head toward the small pile of furs that would be made out to be the nest. He could feel the terror that Finlay bled through the link but he couldn't react upon it. It would do no good for both of them to be fumbling messes. So, Draco hid his emotions, shoving them into a neatly contained box with a sealed lid on top. He'd head toward the face of his mate, his head dipping as he attempted to push his head against him and chuffed to let him know that he wasn't alone.

How's the Craic?


-fade in-

Light was coming into the cave by the time Finlay was done giving birth. Before this moment Finlay had no clue just how long of a process this would have been, how gross it was, how many kids he would have, or how emotional he would have been… none of it. He knew he cried silently during labor, each time a stillborn entered the world. There were three. He tried everything he could think of to try and make them breathe, to cry, something… but they were already gone. Clearly… they were. He was warned by his old teacher that there was always a possibility of one or so stillbirths per litter, but… he wasn’t ready for it, and certainly not ready for three of them. But no one can ever really be ready for it… right? He just desperately hoped they hadn’t felt any pain.

Finlay was beyond exhausted, quiet, teary eyed, and heartbroken; at the same time… he was very much happy. Though there were three stillborns there were two very much alive babes; Little tiny babes, clearly showing signs of taking after his own diminutive size. He was too tired to make sure his emotions kept from leaking via link, and honestly… he didn’t care if Draconis saw how he felt. The weird contrasting mix of emotions he felt. He trusted Draconis, and was so very thankful that he didn’t have to go through this alone, that he wasn’t alone anymore.

Finlay blamed solely himself for the three little ones who didn’t make it. He… had no clue what he could have done wrong… but still he blamed himself. Draconis couldn’t have done anything wrong. Not in Finlay’s eyes. Maybe… this is what his own mother experienced when she gave birth to him? Maybe… he reminded her of the ones who didn’t make it? Maybe that's why she gave him up? Finlay could only theorize about his mother’s intentions on why she did what she did. But… theorizing about the past didn’t help him now. And Finlay knew… there was no way he was giving up these two little ones. He was strong, Draco was strong, and all five kids were strong in Finlay’s mind… just two happened to be… perhaps a bit stronger. Remaining quiet as his body shook gently from exhaustion he looked softly down at the two little babes, a girl and a boy.

Maybe the other three didn’t make it… due to Finlay’s size. Maybe he… hadn’t provided them enough nourishment or room with his diminutive form. Not enough for… five kids. Maybe he and Draconis were just very unlucky? But still… Finlay blamed himself. Draconis did all he could to help him through the pregnancy, there was no way Draconis was at fault in any way. Not in Finlay's mind, not ever. Looking back at the three stillborns who were laying on their own fur nearby him he frowned and finally spoke, his solemn voice quietly sounding throughout the cave, ”Draco… do… dhink… id happened… cause I’m liddle?” A loaded statement that held emotional baggage from his past. Finlay wasn’t just asking if ‘it's because of his size’, to him, it was more than that. He knew his mate was smart, and he knew his mate by now probably could have pieced together the fact Finlay was sensitive about the subject of his own birth and birth mother. If his mother rejected him possibly because of his size… and now most of his babes didn’t make it because of his size… Finlay would be crushed.

To be honest, Finlay wasn’t sure about how much Draco was able to deduce from his actions. Finlay grew up not being able to afford to lose his emotions, having to force himself to do things even if it hurt. He did what he had to do to survive. He may not be as stone faced as Draconis could be externally, and it wasn’t fair to his mate to be a sobbing mess right now. At least that’s what Finlay believed. He believed that Draconis was probably blaming himself… and here Finlay was being selfish asking for support. It wasn’t fair to Draconis… and it wasn’t fair to these two little ones. Who… had no names yet.

Finlay took a deep breath, shoving his emotions down deep within him. He could cry later about this. Right now… he needed to hold himself together. The babes needed names, and Draco and him needed sleep. ”I’m sorry… dah queshion isnd fair… do you or dah liddle ones.” Finlay gently smiled down at the two babes laying near his belly. To focus on something happier, he thought of two names… ones that maybe Draconis would like. ”Hows… aboud dah names… Eliana and Lorcan?” Using the Link that he and Draconis shared, Finlay spoke softly, ”Dah middle names is all yours do dink of. Please… someding I can says ad leasd.” Finlay was trying hard to mask his feelings in the moment by making an attempt at a joke, because he wanted to just be overjoyed at this important time in his life… but it was hard. Finlay wasn’t very good at expressing deep emotions, something he was sure Draconis struggled with as well.

RE: [P] [M] {Draconis} Some Things Cannot Wait


He stayed by Finlay's side the entire time. Each time a stillborn came into the world, the harder his heart would sink. He had to keep it together but he didn't know how he was supposed to handle the loss. His head lowered as he nudged one than the other to the next one. Nothing he did manage to force air into their little lungs. They were stiff and slowly becoming cold. His eyes slowly moved away from the stillborns to the two that had managed to come out alive. Had there been something wrong with the three that hadn't made it? Was it something that they had done wrong that caused the deaths of the three cubs? That was a thought that he would have to pick apart when he didn't have to be a rock. He knew that it was safe in the den to express himself but sometimes, even that was hard. And right now, he knew that he couldn't allow Finlay to see the desperation or the pain that he felt.

The question pulled at him, forcing his heart to constrict as he turned his blue eyes right upon the exhausted cat. He could feel the intense emotions that Finlay was emitting through their link but he certainly wasn't going to add his own to the mix. His attention slowly moved to the two cubs curled against the belly of the exhausted cat before his eyes would move to stare upon Finlay. "There is no explanation for what happens during pregnancy." His voice was soft, though he wasn't sure if what he was saying was actually true. He kept that uneasy that he felt hidden as well as he could. "We can ask ourselves what went wrong but we'll never get an answer to those questions." His eyes flicked to the two survivors. "What I do know, however, is that these two will grow up strong and healthy. And they will know that they are wanted." He lowered his head as he attempted to push it against Finlay's.

A chuff came before he pulled back slightly to give a lick across Finlay's forehead. As Finlay offered the names of the two, he hummed his approval. That was when the tease of the other male came via the link. To give them middle names? He had half a mind to tease Finlay and give them both something with a T in it. But he seemed to feel generous at the moment. Using the link that connected them, Draco responded. What? You thought that I would do that?

He absolutely would but at the moment, he decided that he didn't have to be an ass. "Saoirse and Rogan."
