[AW] incisors and exoskeletons

All Welcome! Messy is in Secui form and some random part of the territory. :3



He'd done well for the first few days, he supposed. He'd asked about where to live and found the caves natural and nice, claiming one spacious enough for himself and his brother. And, while he had to spend most of his time with Nephilim to make sure the idiot didn't chew off another toe or something, he'd managed to roam much of the territory, too.


And, somewhere along the way, Messiah had gotten fleas.


The first telltale tingling started, and immediately the lean coyote whirled and bit hard at his haunch. Almost in mimicry of his brother, he nibbled, but could not find the blasted insect. Shifting uncomfortably, he flattened his ears and skulked a few yards from that spot through the tall grass of the marsh—when another sharper pain bit into him. He plopped his ass down and spun and snapped, nose and lips shifted back as teeth pressed and crushed the tiny body of a little insect.


But there were more—and the underfed coyote was soon rolling on his back in muck and dirt, twisting and turning and kicking willowy limbs up as he attempted to rid of his pelt of the thrice-damned creatures somehow.

Part of his intention in avoiding Kali was aided by the endless need to collect plants; not always medical of course, for he was a practical man too. Rope could be made from strong fibers, and while he favored the hemp, it was best to reinforce it. His fingers were not as nimble as they might have been, scarred and damaged by ten-thousand draws on the bow, and ten-thousand more fistfights to boot.

Soldiers could be taught not to feel, if they were reprogrammed well enough. Marlowe had come close, and sometimes...sometimes he didn't feel the bruises until much later.

The two scars on his face, he hadn't felt those either.

Favoring his own two legs as to let his horse rest, Marlowe was in the process of collecting long, slender pieces of the wild-growing grass. Some of it was strong enough for his purpose, though he was particular and slow in his testing of this. For rope, he had to be.

So engrossed in this process was Marlowe that he all but missed the arrival of another young man...right up until the skinny thing started flailing on the ground. He was smiling, all tooth and charm, but his eyes were hard and wary.

What the hell's wrong with you? He called, and though the taunt was cruel he said it pleasantly, as if meaning no ill-will.

That didn't change the tension in his arm, of course.

Here shortpost because I still have little idea of what I'm doing with Messy. xD



A voice called out to him, and Messiah flipped back onto his belly, forelegs splayed for balance and ears flipping up to catch the other's drawl. Ember eyes darted to another coyote in the grass, grasping long stalks in his hands. He looked like a warrior—and Messiah forgot any irritation at being discovered. His tail flailed in the grass and dust, and he slowly stood on four Secui-large paws.


I caught fuckin' fleas, Messiah replied bluntly, but his tail thrashed and he approached the other. I'm Messiah. His bright eyes flickered over the other's face, his scarring. De le Poer, he added with obvious pride. The swell of his chest was short-lived, however, as he adopted a far more submissive stance and continued to look upon the other in hopes that this Infernian really was a warrior—a true, fighting-in-the-name-of-God warrior—like he thought.

that is okay :D


The boy was not so young,and he had a curious look about him—the kind of feverish eyes that Marlowe thought of as ojos locos and was wary of—but he came from a line of people who had made their living playing with fire. Fleabag, Messiah de le Poer, was part of this family, part of his family.

Marlowe's smile did not falter, though inside he was repulsed at the thought.

That's shit luck, the coyote offered, and gave the long grass in his hands a twist. I'm Marlowe. Seems like you and I got the same last name, too.

His coin-colored eyes fixed on the young man's face, watching it carefully.

Might know a way to help with those, he went on quickly. Might need to find a few things, if we ain't got 'em here. A shrug, dismissive as to his would-be knowledge of their stock.

fleabag


Hi, Marlowe, Messiah said, but was more interested in the fact that they shared a last name. He knew he had a lot of family here that didn't share his name—Lykois, Massacres, even smaller coyote families—but he was happy to meet another cousin. You got your name all the way from Gabriel too, hm? Of course, the name came from men even before him—but they were wolves. My grandma is Talitha, he added, curious to figure out how he fit with Marlowe.


Marlowe was not nearly as outgoing as the willowy red coyote, but he did offer his help, and Messiah dipped his head gratefully. Thanks. I've been traveling too much to take care of these biting pests. We had to get here. His tail tucked beneath his belly, even as he smiled. Let me know and I'll help you get the stuff, he offered, not wanting to be seen as a burden.

FLEABAG DE LE POER (please forgive the shortest post ever)


The words told Marlowe more than he let on—all the way marked him as far-removed—but he recognized the names. Family names were important, and held value; especially in places like this.

Talitha is my dad's sister, he said, and the grass in his hands was released, for it had been crushed in by his motion. Besides, there was a far more interesting task to see to now.

You any good with plants? We're gonna need to find some rosemary—though if they're real bad, we'll need some more shit, he lapsed here, deciding that it would make him feel better not worrying too much about how he spoke.

Messiah's tail wagged harder behind him, though it was low, uncertain in its carriage. He was excited to know that the two were more closely related than they could have been, Marlowe's grandfather Messiah's great-grandfather, but he did not want to presume too much about what this meant. Not every family member had to be kindly. Submissive fully, in a way that spoke of feral roots, he stepped closer to the man.


Uhh, not great, he admitted, brow furrowed. Why would he need to be good at plants? But you tell me what it smells like and I'll get it, he said. Or what it looks like. I'll fetch the stuff if—ow—you can make it get rid of thesedamnthings, he hissed, whirling to nip at his haunch.

Naw, we'll look now—if you can manage, he quipped, and his smile turned a little savage. You wash yourself at all? That might help.

It was, in truth, a harmless sort of comment. Marlowe's tongue was lined with sharp edges, like his sisters, but this was more the proof of Scintilla's work than anything else. In the absence of community (or, rather, in the wake of it) they had become hostile, even to each other.

He thought there must have been a time before that, when there hadn't been such anger and pain between them. Before the desert, before the endless war.

Come on, Messiah, he said, and began moving. We'll try an' do somethin' fast, but if it ain't enough you are gonna need to get some other stuff. The coyote thought a moment longer, then added: You had to get here?

Messiah nodded then snorted, hobbling after the other on three legs as the fourth reached up to claw at his flank. I wash when I get dirty, he said, not comprehending that more regular baths might help his flea problem. Really, he preferred not to get in water if he could help it. Sometimes it was fun, but there was a difference between traipsing through a stream or wading into a pond for food and sitting down to soak.


Okay, he yipped, and scrambled after his elder cousin. His expression—of face and of body, for he loped with the energy of all his thoughts—did not change with the question. Yes, he said. We belong here. His eyes narrowed, though not at Marlowe. Don't we?

Kid, having bugs crawlin' on you qualify as dirty, Marlowe tossed out, sharper than he perhaps intended. He had a habit for bluntness, and saw some right of authority here—his age and his experience superseded their slight difference in rank. He did not mean it hurtfully, but his perception of what qualified as mean was terribly skewed.

We belong here sounded like something Agrippa might have said, back when they were younger. They had believed in this place enough to risk everything—even their souls—to get here.

Marlowe still had his doubts, and so tried to find purpose in all things.

I heard the Lykoi's always come around, the coyote said, and shrugged one shoulder. His hand moved with the motion, swinging away from his chest. You jus' made it sound like someone be after you, he explained, side-eyeing the boy curiously.

I love Marlowe and his voice and ugh ♥



His sharp remark registered this time, and Messiah hunched his head lower and narrowed his eyes, glowering out into space as he continued to trot after the darker coyote. He wanted to retort, to either yap insults back or otherwise play the hurt puppy. And it did hurt, a little, but if it hurt more then maybe it would make Marlowe feel bad, and then it would be okay.


Caught between shame and anger and a need to prove himself, Messiah thankfully held his tongue.


Yup, he confirmed, head lifted. The dark red of his nape fell into streaks like the cross, and the Chaos Star of his family was centered at his shoulders where the marking branched. He was proud of it, proud of his heritage, to be grouped in with the other heroes that were Lykoi. He grinned then ducked his head when amber eyes flicked his way, frowning.



No. I mean—sometimes the sinners fight you, but no one chased us. But it's safer here. All of us.

It was a sort of shaming—because this was what Marlowe had learned. You were not praised unless you did something exceptional, and far more often, one was berated and brought down. A soldier did not need to feel, he needed only do his job.

Marlowe was still having a very hard time being anything else, though his new home did not offer such boundaries as Scintilla.

Red stars were everywhere here, and the gross size of his family had become unreal.

Sinners, he echoed, but did not explore this further. Instead he turned towards a section of smaller trees, younger by his guess. The sun was able to pierce through this area still, and here great swatches of wildflowers had taken root.

Late summer meant flowers, and flowers meant a collection of buzzing insects and birds. Marlowe tried to ignore them, and began stepping through the untouched mess. Some of the flowers, tall and gangly, reached to his chest. He was well aware of the other benefits of some of these, and took note of their location—even now his fur was beginning to pick up the earthy scent of the plants.

Here, he announced, and pushed a section of these aside. A somewhat glossy plant with tall, needle-lined stalks and dotted purple flowers was behind these. It smelled sweet, if somewhat strong. Kneeling, the coyote drew a dagger (old and somewhat damaged, obviously foraged by the “MP” stamp still visible on the blade and the perfect oval within) and sliced a section of this off. He gathered most of the plant this way, though left more than a quarter of it standing.

A'ight, Itchy, y'all know where that hot springs is? Let's go, vamanos! He smiled a little, showing that this teasing was more in jest.

The whole question here is: am I a monster, or a victim myself?
