Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Sentinel

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

*wipes sweat from brow* Whew, political correctness is a lot of hard work. But it has to be done.

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Regardless, it was a good year on the forums - we've met some new faces, set out …

I had to pause and think about his question. Did he seem dangerous? He was nothing but comforting, and in his presence I felt safe – nothing about that seemed malicious to me.

"No," I answered honestly. "He didn't seem dangerous at all. Just... Very polite. Very kind."

"Oh dear," I say. "That's not what I was hoping to hear. Let's go, then. If you're looking for the tailor as well, we may as well go look for it together."

Iliyana blinked when Karra's attention was turned away from her.


This..is the right person, isn't? Miss "Bloodthirsty Demon Girl"? The blonde asked herself, Is she making fun of me?

Hoping her face wasn't betraying her confusion, the noblewoman smiled again. "Good idea, dear. Now, which way would you suggest?"

I stayed quiet for a moment, face still showing my confusion and apprehension to this. Sure Briony said he was nice, and I had no reason not to believe her, but there was a huge difference between a nice person and a good person.

"Alright, if you say so," I relented, deciding to figure that out later, "But...was the guy in that nightmare? Seems weird that he was being nice with everything else freaking you out."

My expression darkened a bit at what my brother said. "I think he was just looking out for me," I said. "He wanted to show me things that could happen if I'm not careful..."

I trailed off, wondering deep inside why I was so adamant on defending this stranger.

Now I really didn't like the sound of this but I didn't want to upset her anymore. Instead I held my hand up in surrender, "Alright, alright."

Did she think she had to be careful around me now? What the hell did dream me do to make her trust this guy was telling the truth?

"You still haven't told me who this guy is though," I said, trying to keep a slightly teasing tone, "Just that he's nice."

"He's a man," I answered, trying to find the right descriptors. "He has long white hair and gold eyes. I don't know his name."

"I just came from the left, so . . . right, I'm guessing." I guess this is the only instance where I can ever choose the right.

I have to hold in my rising chuckles so I don't look like a fool in front of Iliyana. "Do you not have a dress for the ball, either?"


- Alric -

What is this place?

It's just . . .

Blackness.

Deep, unyielding, inpenitrible blackness.

One moment, I was in the garden.

And now I feel lost, without order, caught in emptiness --

Wait.

There. Now I see it . . .

Slowly, the blackness begins to bloom into a scene, impressing a semblance of order into a former black void. It assumes the shape of one of my mother's memories, if what I correctly remember what she said.

I've never actually let a spirit take me through one of their memories. It feels like I'm there, yet I'm not at the same time. I am something of a spirit, helpless to do anything but watch, and let myself get carried along like I've been swept into the current of a river.

It's late at night. While it's not yet midnight, it's still well into the evening, and a bonfire sends smoke spiraling into a starlit sky. Several men and women, exclusively having black or white hair, dance and laugh together. Some are off to the side, plucking the strings of an instrument, making music to fill the night. Their clothes, while as ragged and tattered as anything Karra and I wore during our tenure as slaves, are a little bit more modest than the current fashion. I'd say it's dated by a little over twenty years. This memory transpired two decades ago, then. Just a little bit before I was born.

Off to the side, sitting alone at a table, is a young woman with long white hair. My mom. She doesn't look much older than me. Her violet eyes, while large and full, don't speak of innocence. More than anything, she regards the jubilant scene before her with something I can only describe as disgust.

Despite that bitterness, though, the young Lilla doesn't want to spoil the occasion for anyone else. So she silently turns to her glass of water, downing a sip. She's only swallowed a few mouthfuls before she eyes a man approaching her.

"You're the only one not dancing," the man says.

He's a strong-looking figure, with broad shoulders and a chiseled jaw. Evidently, in the memory, I can feel the emotions of the one who pulled me into the scene. Thankfully, I can still manage to tell my emotions and my mother's apart. That's how I simultaniously feel my disgust upon recognizing my father's face, and yet still recognize, from a distance, that my mother finds him charmingly handsome.

She doesn't let this alter her stoic expression, however. "I'm not much of a dancer."

"Many of us here aren't exactly professional dancers, either. Do you see anyone caring?" He takes a seat, uninvited, across from her. Her faint attraction towards him is marred by her annoyance. "I'm Ardon Aldaine."

"Lilla."

"Why so glum, Lilla? You're the only one present who's not enjoying herself."

"I don't feel in the mood to celebrate."

"Why not? Lord Redfield has given all of us tomorrow off. It's an occasion that calls for celebration."

She purses her lips. "This happiness is false. It's a happiness we get because our Albirian master said so. Because he deigned to let us be merry. Do you still think that calls for celebration?"

Now I know where Karra got it from, her well of anger. Though Lilla has tempered her emotions into something cold and precise, Karra and Lilla's anger are, at heart, the same.

A corner of Ardon's lip rises higher. "Oh, but there is still cause to be joyful."

"And why is that?"

Ardon's careful blue eyes skim the crowd. Most of the Heijiki are too invested in their dancing and laughing to notice.

He leans in closer across the table, dropping his voice. "Because I had a dream. A dream in which the gods told me that it was time for me to lead the Heijiki and free them from their oppressors."

"How curious. You do realize that it could have been your own imagination?"

"Oh, it certainly could have been," Ardon says. And that's what draws Lilla in to him. Despite his radical claim, and though it suggests a degree of insanity, Ardon sounds perfectly sane. He's well aware of how ridiculous this sounds, but still doesn't back down. "Perhaps it really was sent from the gods. Perhaps it wasn't. Who knows? But either way, I choose to interpret that as a sign."

Now Lilla's leaning in, too. "A sign of what?"

"What else? The sign of a new era. An age where we won't have to live under fear, a new beginning where we are treated without scorn. Whether the gods smile upon us or not, it will happen."

A smile starts curving on Lilla's face. "And the Albirians?"

"I'll let you use your imagination."

Spurred by his excitement of the idea, my young father leaps up from the bench and holds out a hand to help my mom to her feet. "So come celebrate, Lilla, because soon, we Heijiki will attain true happiness."

Lilla's lips quiver, like she's trying to reign in her smile, but her face shines with delight. She slips her hand into Ardon's, letting him lead her to the bonfire.

Together they sing and dance to the music, and my mother laughs sound freer and louder than the laughs of anyone else. They celebrate passionately, and now, for all of his faults, I can see that my father really did make my mother happy.

Hours pass, and the exuberance of the occasion mellows out. Even the once-boisterous music has slowed into soft and content melodies, each note appreciating what little they have in life. The vigorous flailing of limbs from before has quieted into slow dancing, each couple simply swaying back and forth.

Though I can feel Lilla's weariness from the night, she still manages to look up. Everything else becomes distant as she stares into Ardon's eyes.

I can sense it as surely as Lilla felt it that night. Lilla had always considered herself a woman of pragmatism. She'd never been one to believe in love at first sight. She'd always expected that her own love story would be slower, and more nuanced. It would take months, perhaps years of dating a single person before she would be able to identify him as 'the one.'

But there and then, she knew. Though she'd only just met him this night, she knows that he is her equal. He is the man who will become her husband.

Lilla wraps her hand around the back of Ardon's neck, bringing his face in closer. One tilt of the head, and her lips will be on his.

She has never been one to waste time.

Lilla savors her kiss with him.

And that, I suppose, is the beginning of mine and Karra's story.

~Pippin~

I almost ask if the man is Atticus from the description but I knew she would just tell me it was him if that was true. Besides, it might not be the best time to make that comparison.

Instead I just hummed and nodded slowly, pausing for a second before speaking again, "Well that could be anyone, huh? Oh well...but you'll tell me if anything gets too weird, right?"

Iliyana laughed out loud, more at herself than Karra.

"Oh, no. In my haste to join this adventure, it didn't cross my mind to bring my best gowns."

She glanced over Karra's form out of the corner of her eye, trying to recall anymore information on her. "And I'm assuming you forgot yours as well?"
