The Avalon Chronicles

Game Master lynora

This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

You missed Alys' post. ;)

"Someone once told me speaking of your ancestors draws their eye."

Their patriarch says with some mirth, as he approaches them.
"How are you both, this morning?"

Alys jumps slightly, not having heard Genosuke approach. She bows smoothly and rather gracefully from her seated position, saying a few utterly unintelligible phrases. Though they have that 'too real for the real world' impact, her posture and tone leave no doubt that she just said something along the lines of 'good morning and welcome, Honored Uncle'.

"Yes, it is quite different from our normal ways, but, learning how other beings in the vastness of creation live can only enrich us."

He pauses, looking imperious for a second.
"Well, that should count toward my 'sanctimonious phrase' quota for today. Truthfully, I felt like heading out into the garden, and running around for a bit. I've not had much time for some old fashion fox time. 'Frolic' is such a juvenile word, but it fits the best. I came to see if you two would like to join in. I need to let loose for a bit. Perhaps some of your youthful exuberance will rub off, I could use the recharge."
As he says the last bit, he actually looks kind of haggard, well, for him.
Keme's expression softened. "Yeah, sure, Gramps. I'd love to go out for a run."
Alys nods emphatically in agreement, a grin spreading across her face at the thought of indulging the fox within her.

"Good. Shall we?"

He takes his fox form, but hides 8 of his tails. He nips Alys on the ankle, and dashes out of the cafeteria towards the door to the gardens.

"Then we are also class mates, in a way. I believe you are a bit young for the part of the school I attend, but if you ever need any help with anything, feel free to reach me. I lived out here for a year or so before I actually joined the school, so I'm not quite used to not having to hunt for myself yet, and often come out here to do so. Plus, I'm not used to being around a whole lot of people who aren't...uncomfortable...around my abilities. So, that's how I stumbled across you two."

Alys jumps slightly, then also shifts into a one-tailed fox and races out after her uncle and yipping back at Keme as she goes.

"So wha bwingff you to Avvawaa," she asked through a giant mouthful of pancake.

Ignace's tears finally stopped around the same time as Chara's story finished. Raelle sent Ignace to the bathroom to clean up and headed to the kitchen.

"Hey, you two. Sounds like you're having a good time in here. Since Mom is still sleeping, how about we make a batch of feel-better cookies? Chara, you should go and tell Ignace that's what we're doing."
As soon as Chara ran off, excited about cookies, Raelle hugged Ardiente. "Thanks for being here. I don't think I could have handled both of them by myself."

He hugs her back "You're quite welcome, though to be honest, there's few other places I would rather be than with you and your family."

He lets that sink in for a few moments, then says "So, baking cookies. I don't think I've ever taken part in such an activity."

"You've never made cookies?!" Chara demands, shocked, as she returns to the kitchen with Ignace in tow. "Well, you need to learn then."

Ignace sighs and opens a drawer. She starts pulling out aprons. "You're going to need to wear one of these. It gets quite messy," she said, pointedly staring at Chara, who promptly stuck her tongue out at Ignace.

Raelle laughed, taking an apron from Ignace and putting it on. "It's a family tradition for us. Whenever one of us is feeling sad or discouraged we make feel-better cookies. Sometimes Chara pretends to be sad just because she wants cookies," she added in a fake whisper that was clearly meant to be overheard.

After devouring his meal, Djalos makes a quick stop to his room before heading back to the library. He stays behind the curtain that separates him and his roommate's portions of the room for a few minutes, then comes out and immediately heads back to the library.

Upon reaching Sadie, Djalos sits down and begins reading with her and Dara. He then abruptly asks, "So, what do you do for fun? I am rather curious, since I have no such activities or proclivities myself."

"Well, I run the fencing club. Which admittedly is less fun now that I'm also teaching the classes, but it started out as fun. Sometimes I like to go dancing. I have some friends that are really into music, so sometimes they have me listen to their songs. When we did that obstacle race in the SIM room, that was fun. That's the sort of thing that immediately comes to mind. Sometimes it's fun to just hang around with people I like and just talk, too," she said, looking up from her reading long enough to give the answer some real thought.

Her expression softened and she reached out and took his hand. "I didn't know what love even was before I met you. I do love you, truly. I just have no idea what I'm doing and not much in the way of examples to follow. When you tell me how you feel about me...I'm overwhelmed. It's a good kind of overwhelmed, but I don't even know what to do with these feelings that are just too big. I just...I need you to know that what you want is important to me. You're important to me."

"And on that note, I almost forgot to tell you, Fortunata gave her blessing on the 'medical procedure' to fix my memories. No promises that things between her and I would continue as is, but she's not the sort...

He squeezes her had back, and smiles.

"I have to admit, I'm not the best at this either. The men and women of my village were so stoic. They didn't show a lot of emotion or affection in public, but they were always there, with each other, through everything. The couple of times anyone was foolish enough to assault our clan, men and women, partners, fought together side by side to face whatever came. Moles and earthbenders, the fury of claw and stone was terrible to behold, but, they all fought side by side.
So, while I support you, and am always there for you like I've learned to be, I could be more vocal about my feelings as well. Stoicism isn't the best in all things apparently."
He nods.
"Taking a gamble seemed to be right up her alley. I am glad she approved, none-the-less. How do you think this will change you? You mean you may no longer be Luck's champion?"

She nodded. "Yeah. It's possible that she'll move on to someone else while I'm temporarily dead. Or she may not. I won't know until afterwards when I wake up. With....there have been incidents. Not just the one with the kitsune girl. I had another patient. A boy. He's possessed or bonded with or something, some kind of Other. The borders are too thin. Anyhow, it took several hours to defrost the exam room. I kind of panicked. My winter powers are getting stronger and I worry about what that means. I worry I might have to take my mother's place. If the worst happens. It's possible that Luck may leave me to that fate. Or help me thwart it. You just never know what you're going to get with her."

Keme follows suit, sticking to the one-tailed fox form as well since it seemed that they were going for the not calling attention the themselves version of things.


Male Elf Slayer 16

"Yes, you are a quite proficient teacher," Djalos says. He's part of the class, although it's apparent that Djalos doesn't really need the instruction, and is just filling up his schedule. "If you require assistance running the light blades course, I could provide it."

To Sadie's comment about the SIM rooms, Djalos nods, once again a display that he's making a conscious effort to be more... socially presentable. "Indeed. The SIM rooms provide a rather interesting challenge. And the time dilation facilities allow for more time to complete assignments."

Djalos pauses for a moment. "Sadie... do you like me? I know I am a burden, socially, and my... mannerisms are strange. My background isn't exactly conducive to friendship either."

"Your mother. Ugh. At least I know you'd do a better job, even if it's not the best thing, like ever, to consider. Would you have an opening for non-rapey, were mole as a winter knight, or even better a winter consort?" he asks with a wink. "Look, if I said I was cool with the death route, I'd be lying. It scares me too, so you're not alone there. I wish we could rely on Phaez and not have to go that route at all...but, it is what it is. Let me know when you're ready, and I'll get Krays up to speed."

"There's no one else I would ever consider as consort, love," she said, trying to smile, but it came out as a sickening grimace and he could feel her whole body tense as she spoke. "Technically in the absence of a winter princess, the queen's consort can and usually does serve temporarily as the winter knight. So that job would be yours until such time as we had a child and she was of age. Because there is no way I would ever do to a child what my mother did to me," she said with a shudder. "Sorry. There's not a lot of good ways to talk about this without dealing with all the trauma at the same time."

"The death part can be done at any time, but I still need Phaezeriel to deal with the memories afterwards. There isn't anyone else capable of doing the psychic surgery necessary. Well, maybe Miss Jones, but she's been acting a bit off lately, and I feel more comfortable letting Phaezeriel do it. I'd rather get the whole thing out of the way sooner rather than later, but with Phaeze in a cocoon," she shrugged. "It has to wait a while longer I guess."

"I'm scared," she said softly. "All the time. I try and hide it as much as I can, but it's always there. I'm so very tired of being afraid."

"Well, you're the strongest scared person I know. You have such a tenacity about you, one of the things I absolutely love about you. I'm scared too, although it's more about Winter court bureaucracy than anything else. Can M...your mother do anything to lay claim to your soul that would prevent your resurrection?"

"Yes, I want to do it all at once. In case there are any complications. I would feel safer that way. So yes, we have to wait for Phaezeriel. And no, I don't believe that there is anything that my mother can do to prevent my being resurrected. Especially not with Krays there. Patrons do so love to pull rank when it comes to a contest," she said, with a slightly better attempt at a smile.

"You help me be brave, you know. It's just a little bit easier having someone else on my side."

While they might be trying to be inconspicuous, a trio of foxes running together is unusual, at least to a girl who spent ninety eight percent of her life locked up.

So it was that when Serrin spotted the leash (She's smart and well read!) she shifts into her bird form and flies after them.

Keme appears as a red fox, and on the small end of the normal spectrum for foxes, so about the size of a cat.

"Well, what kind of classes are you interested in? They've got lots and lots of classes, so I'm sure you can find some that will interest you. Well, they'll have a list you can look through when you go to the office to enroll and they'll be able to tell you what's required too."

A firebird with most unusual, but with a lot of purple coloration flies over the three foxes, and lands in front of them, before blurring into Serrin. She sequels in delight "Oh my gosh you are all so cute!"

Lyzzie piled a second tray with plates of large stacks of pancakes covered in layers of dessert toppings, and grabs two large bottles of milk, this time in a sickly pink color, and head back to the table. "They had pink milk!" she said, excited. "It's my favorite! It's really just regular milk with strawberry flavoring added, but I think it's the absolute best! Er...it might be a little too sweet for you since you're not super into the whole sugar thing," she said, still failing to understand the concept, but trying to be considerate anyways.
"Probobly a bit much, yeah. I'm sure iv'e aquired a vastly different set of tastes then you."
"So wha bwingff you to Avvawaa," she asked through a giant mouthful of pancake.
"I was led here by the latest addition to my ever expanding pantheon, "Justice"."
"Uh-huh," she said, trying to be polite. "So you gonna sign up for classes? Or just taking a tour? I mean, it's cool whichever. Just trying to make conversation really cause I think we sort of exhausted the topic of food already," she said with a giggle.
"I was told to come here in order to better myself. So, I suppose that does mean signing up for classes."
"Well, what kind of classes are you interested in? They've got lots and lots of classes, so I'm sure you can find some that will interest you. Well, they'll have a list you can look through when you go to the office to enroll and they'll be able to tell you what's required too."

"A list would be nice. I'm honestly not sure. The gods want me to improve, but I've got no clue how I possibly could."

"Okay, let's get some breakfast then...you might want to change back for that. Pretty sure it's easier to carry the tray with hands then it is with wings," she joked to Sil.

Sil turns back into his human form "Breakfast sounds like a lovely idea. I'm not sure if you've had them yet, but my current favorite are these berry pancakes which are blueberry pancakes, top with sliced strawberries and cherry sauce!" He says, his step quickening slightly in anticipation of said yummy meal.

While they might be trying to be inconspicuous, a trio of foxes running together is unusual, at least to a girl who spent ninety eight percent of her life locked up.

So it was that when Serrin spotted the leash (She's smart and well read!) she shifts into her bird form and flies after them.

What does Keme, Alys and Geno look like in fox form?

Alys looks like a red fox that was dipped in ink, save for the white tip of her tail. When she runs through a patch of sunlight, the red highlights in the tips of her fur light up almost like she is on fire.

Dave floats around, adjusting the random floating of zero gravity with his more purposeful flight before ordering some tea and creme brule to see how the ordering works "you sure you want to pay, I have money"

Tybalt shakes his head as he hangs in mid air next to Dave.

"Nope. It's your birthday, and I'm taking care of it. Plus this system is actually pretty far away from the Agartha, and I dunno if you have the kind of currency they take here." He slides over to the console and taps next to a small port that matches the currency stick he showed earlier. "They don't take coins or even the weird paper stuff."
Before long the pillar hums quietly and turns green before a section around the middle slides open to reveal the things they'd order. Everything somehow stays stuck to the center console without floating away. Even Dave's tea remains firmly in the cup, kept in by some sort of engineered surface tension. Cream and sugar are set next to it with small bottles to apply them directly into the tea as opposed to pouring in.
Tybalt floats by and snags an orange scone off his stack as he turns in lazy loops and airleron rolls. He munches it as he explains, "The tower has like half a foot of gravity to it to set stuff on and stay at it while you're ordering. And the cups have a thing around the top that keeps liquid in unless you're drinking from it," he explains between and occasionally through a mouthful of some sweet pastry or other.
Despite him demolishing a scone at every other pass of the tower, nothing seems to be generating any crumbs or other detritus.

"They don't take gold? I thought everywhere took gold?" Dace looks amused at the tea staying in the cup, he tries turning it upside down as he lets himself float off slightly. He quickly eats his food before ordering some random cream cheese stuffed pastrie

Plus, I'm not used to being around a whole lot of people who aren't...uncomfortable...around my abilities. So, that's how I stumbled across you two."

"The boss had them released to the firebirds' custody last night. He had Mithros take them over. They're still in their cage though, I think. Anyways, it was something about military versus civil authority. They're firebirds who committed crimes against firebirds and need to be judged by their own people kind of thing. I'm glad to come with you since I have some rare free time, but I doubt they'll let us in. They're pretty prickly towards outsiders," he said with a shrug.

"No, he's not a bad person. It's not like when that boy attacked us in the meditation classroom. He just had a bad family who made him do bad things....Yes, I know he said he killed people. That was the sort of bad thing....He's just learning how to behave. I promise he's not going to hurt you."

Once inside the cafeteria, she grabbed a tray and piled it high with charred pancakes, hash blacks, blackened bacon, and so on until it was so heavy she could barely lift it to get to a table.

"I find I like that idea," she said, smiling back, and then pulling her hand away. "Are you going to be offended if I spend the rest of lunch as a polar bear?

Her relaxed position suddenly fades, her eyes narrowing. "Kindly keep out of my emotions. Those are private." she does her bast to mentally wall herself off. It more or less just makes her seem evasive and angry.

The tea stays firmly in the cup, meeting some kind of flat barrier at the very edge of the cup.
Picture your mouth as the straw to a Capri sun that reseals itself. You can open up a hole in the seal to drink from, but it closes again. But the seal is invisible over the cup.
"Besides, gotta save those coins to get your watch. I dunno how much that'll be wherever we get it. Everything here is all electric and no good for magic, but I've got a couple markets in mind."
The food arrives at the same rather quick rate the other did, ready to be eaten.
