[P] Fall Dance
Colibri
#1
WC: 364 OOC: Jiva is in optime, accompanied by his lil fox boy who's pelt is starting a dark red and the black on his legs arre starting to show. :3

Jiva’s days were consisting of work. Lots of work and helping with anything the pack needed. Now he was on a mission. One that would show his mate that he cared for her with the whole of his heart. Since he had not perfected the burning technique of his leather he knew he would have to use other resources. So he set out early morning with leaf. The boy wanted to go out, and Jiva knew he wasn’t spending as much time with the kit as he should. He was growing. That was certain and the boy was excited. He was even learning their language at rapid speed, with the stranges accent that Jiva ever heard, but perhaps it was because he was a fox and not a wolf.

Jiva let his paws pad out towards a new area, one he had yet to visit but was sure that Drin had found and sat for hours if she could. So he led the boy to the garden. It was the first thing he wanted to show Drin. That he was also the boys father in a way and that she did not have to do it all by herself. He felt foolish letting his own jealousy over the boy get to him so much. Jiva was young, but not so young as to not understand that a mother would do anything for her child. Jiva had an idea of what he might want but he found that he might not find exactly what he wanted at the garden, though he wasn’t even sure if he could take from it. Healing herbs, yes, but for decoration on a gift made him uncertain. “Now Leaf you be good ok? Jiva said as they stopped before the garden’s entrance. We don’t go tramping through all the plants. You will break them and they will wither. It would make your mom sad if she knew you did that.” He said. Leaf gave Jiva a bashful look and nodded “Ok da” the boy said. Jiva nodded and entered not sure what he would find as this was his first time entering.

lost into the weight of gravity


Colibri set out early that morning, fresh dew wet on her pawpads. Fiora, Farina, and Florina were bumbling alongside her, wet noses snuffling against the grass as they moved at their leisurely pace. She knew it always took a while to herd the little wolfdogs where she wanted them to go, and today they were going out to the communal garden, further than they usually explored. The hurricane winds had done some minor damage last month, though mercifully the garden could not flood since it was at the top of the hill. Coli, and most likely Saul, had cleared away some of the debris littering their plot of land, little by little. This late in the season there was not much else they could do, other than shore up the ground with mulch and wait for snow to put the plants into hibernation. Coli had brought in a few more plants though, whatever she stumbled upon when she walked the little ones through the woods. She found that if she let the girls expend their energy running about outside, they would sleep more soundly indoors and then she could get sleep as well.


The pups had seen her own flower patch, the wildflowers and herbs she planted all over the hill surrounding her home. The girls were, for the most part, uninterested; most likely since the autumn frost had withered the blossoms and left empty stalks behind. They might show more interest when they got older. In the spring, her hill would be a beacon of color and perfume, and Coli was privately looking forward to this with pride. Today, though, they were heading west of Jordheim for the first time.


She thought about leaving them with their cousins at the Virdings' home for convenience, but since their initiation at the Ausa Vatni ceremony, Coli wanted them to get to know their packmates and be integrated fully into Vinátta, and that included seeing their mother's responsibility. They were six weeks old now, and she did not feel as worried or self-conscious about them and their unstable heritage. They would be safe here, blessed by the gods and the pendant around their necks. Besides, Lilin needed to sleep in once in a while. Coli considered walking Lund, Rúni, and Sólieri along too, but she didn't want her sister to wake up and think her children were missing.


The trundling balls of fur were following her fairly closely today, only straying when their short attention spans were distracted by something like geese flying overhead, or the wind blowing leaves. Farina, the largest of the three, was quick to come barreling up the hill, tail held high with her infantile dominance. She had spotted the unknown figures, one of them about her size, and started growling a challenge at what she thought was a puppy. Coli faltered, waving sheepishly at the adult -- one of her packmates that had been present at the ceremony, though not one she knew by name. He had a distinctive appearance, even from a distance his spiked red mane was clearly recognizable. "Did you need help with anything here? You'll, erm, have to excuse my daughter," she called, nudging Fiora and Florina back with her foot so that they, too, did not rush up the hill to see what awaited them at the top.

WC: 385 OOC: No problem!!

As he suspected most of the plants were “hibernating” as it were, their leaves drying and falling and the blooms long gone from spring summer or early fall blooms, and it all had this new feeling to it, so it wasn’t a well established garden, but Jiva didn’t expect more than that. He moved around it for a little bit, Leaf following him, as he identified a good few healing plants. His eyes went straight to them. Most of them were not worth taking now, but the perennial ones would be ready next year and the annual ones, well they would make good soil for new plants later.

It wasn’t until he got back to the entrance that he heard someone, first it was a young someone, and he could tell the sound of one protecting her home. Leaf heard it too and he hid behind Jiva’s legs his blackening tipped tail tucked under him, his eyes wide, wondering what was going on. The boy was a timid one and had always been so. Jiva didn’t mind it. He soon heard the supposed parent of the growling puppy and smiled; “It is ok, she is protecting her family. And I am just looking around, getting a feel for the area.” He said a little evasively. “It is a beautiful garden. My mate would enjoy it here very much. He said moving forward, but didnt get too close for the puppy’s comfort. She seemed set on protecting her family and home.

“I’m also trying to find something, a present for her. I’m Jiva, I just came here a few weeks ago, me and my mate Palaydrian and Leaf here, He motioned to Leaf “We came from New Dawn. We felt it would be better and safer to move to a pack that was less... traditional,” He said. He figured he would be asked why he would move from such a lovely place. Because it was lovely and it had been his home for well over six months but there were things he just couldn’t stand. And they happened and he didn’t want to be a part of it. Besides he was born a luperci and should embrace it as Drin was starting to even now with their predicament.

WC: 565


lost into the weight of gravity


Coli was notorious for being nervous around males, the larger and stronger sex. This lean packmate was not overly tall or bulky, though, and carried the distinct scent of a female partner in his fur, something that set her more at ease. The usual triggers for her phobia were not present. The slight Sannindi listened as the redhead spoke, nodding in understanding. "Does your mate work with plants? She is free to contribute here, this is the communal herb garden we all share," Coli explained with a faint smile, gesturing to the plot of land she had helped to create. The apple saplings and the raspberry bush were her own personal touch, a wish for fruit and sweet blossoms to share amid the herbal remedies. She moved hesitantly nearer, closing the distance between them as her daughters all piled forward to meet the timid kit.


Up close she could see his eyes were mismatched, the colorful irises reminding her in passing of Ezra Rosen. Perhaps this Jiva had some husky dog heritage as well. She never used to put much stock into that sort of genetics, but now that she had wolfdog daughters, she found herself wondering how obvious their lineage would be once they grew up. The black saddle markings and floppy ears were already clear signals of something Coli had never seen in wolves, especially the arctic wolves in her line. She hoped it would not cause the girls any issues, or make them curious about their father, because they would not like what they unearthed regarding that particular dog. They were better off believing they were pure wolf.


She glanced to the little one cowering behind his legs, and blinked in surprise when she found not a wolf or a dog, but rather a young fox. Puppy Farina was emboldened by her success, and stamped her little paws on the ground, trying to spook the kit. "Farina, leave the nice man's pet alone," she called in a low tone, though her black and tan daughter ignored the call. Fiora and Florina merely watched from where they sat near their mother, though their tails wagged eagerly. "It's nice to meet you, Jiva and Leaf. I'm Colibri, and I hope this home is a better fit than your previous one. It took me several packs before settling in this one," she admitted. Vinátta held her loyalty now, she could never leave. She hoped her daughters would be similarly devoted. She did not know of New Dawn or what traditions they held, so she could not pass judgment there. Vinátta was still establishing traditions, since they were new.


"A present... does she like sweets? There are still some raspberries on the bush there, and you could probably find huckleberries and cranberries at the lake shore..." She tilted her head, considering what she personally would like to receive. If his mate liked gardening, plants seemed like an obvious choice. "The periwinkle and roses are in bloom, you could bring her a cutting." She shrugged, unsure what else to offer. Once, she had been in love with a gardener, and the best gifts were always flowers, culminating in the special pink lady's slipper orchids. But that was a lifetime ago, and she had never found the pink variety since, just the more commonplace yellow. She could give advice about horticulture, but certainly not about romance.

wc: 572 ooc: you are making me write a lot meany!!! :P

Jiva nodded; “Yes she had a garden in New Dawn before the Hurricane. It was a beautiful little thing. I think she salvaged some stuff. I’ll.... I’ll make sure to let her know she is welcome to help here.” He said, certain it might be some time before she would listen to him much longer before she’d talk to him again. It was his own fault and he deserved the cold shoulder, but he wondered if things could have gone better or not.

He looked to see the puppies wanting to meet Leaf and smiled; “You have beautiful children. He said a smile on his face. It faded though as she spoke of leaf being a pet he held his hand up instantly. He had once been hesitant of Leaf being called his child, but every day he grew closer to the boy and he couldn’t think of him every being a pet. “No, no he is not a pet, me and Palaydrian, we adopted him after... well after we lost our own children. He needed a mother and father. He is no pet. He is a part of our family. He said blushing a little, not entirely embarrassed but he had seen the reactions of the other wolves to Leaf, and they weren’t all positive. “And thank you. It seems like a very nice fit for us, we hope to stay long and be helpful members here.

He had to think for a second after her question. Sweet things... he was sure she did and listened as she listed off the things they had that he could use he brightened up immidiately. Those were great things to give his mate. Though she would probably give him a look if he gave her flowers, only for an excuse to give him one, and he wanted no excuses; “Thank you. I am working on something as well, it’s missing something, though it won’t be done until I am more confident in my work, but it is a decoration of sorts. I think it might need a border or something, but I’m no good at stitching or anything like that, so. He fiddled around with the pouch he had on him, it mostly had his medical supplies, that he kept with him at all times, but it held some of his recent projects, he pulled out the leather he was working on, it was not done, not in the least but the cut work was an oval and there was not much more than that, but his plans were simple, “I want to write words here but it will leave the outer bit of it, quite dull, I was trying to see if I can find something to ring it with, she has a few favorite plants but they are not in season anymore sadly. He said. It could be helpful if he showed the woman his work, she might have an idea.

Leaf was not paying attention to Jiva, but looking at the girls with wide eyed interest. “Hhhhh- hiiii He said, his voice almost so low that he could barely be heard at all, the boy was still by Jiva’s legs but cradled up to the man’s feet. He was curious though and when curious kits found something they were interested in they would eventually find themselves immersed.

Oh ho ho~ >D Isn't that how it always goes?
WC: 508


lost into the weight of gravity


Jiva was open and earnest, easy to listen to. Coli found herself hoping the young couple did stay, because they sounded like they could be friends. "If she wants to, of course. I have my own private garden as well, for... for flowers, and sentimental favorites," she explained haltingly. There was a need to keep them separate in her mind, the same privacy that bade her claim a house on the furthest corner of Jordheim. If this Palaydrian had left behind her own garden, or it was fully destroyed in the hurricane, Coli could easily understand how personal a blow that would be. Maybe she would not want to take part in the communal plot, since it would not reflect her own choices.


Not a pet, but part of the family. Coli's ears dropped back apologetically. "I... I'm sorry for your loss," she murmured, and meant it fervently. Her feelings were conflicted when it came to her accidental pregnancy, but she knew how devastating it would be to lose her daughters now. "I'm glad that you found him, though. Leaf. It sounds like you both needed each other..." Companion animals were still a strange concept to her, though she was gradually warming up to the idea thanks to Niernan's insistence. She had never met a tamed fox before, but Leaf had just as much potential for intelligence and personality as Nier's cat friend, Ciaran. She didn't mean to insult them, even if she had a habit of saying just the wrong thing.


"Uh... I can't help with stitches. Or writing. Sorry, I'm not really good with my hands," she admitted, shrugging regretfully. She would have gladly helped, but the only skills she had related to horticulture. Or making tea. She was not very useful in general. "The only thing I could do is help you look for something pretty for the border. Plenty of colorful leaves this time of year, or you could press flowers so they last forever... maybe acorns or curly grape vines..." Her voice trailed off as she lost confidence in the idea. She was certainly no artisan, not in the traditional sense. What made good decorations? Feathers, or fur?


She turned to look when she heard the fox kit speak, tentative and faint. Her own children had not quite mastered words yet, though not for lack of trying. Farina tilted her head in curiosity, leaning in closer to sniff the unfamiliar scent. Coli stepped up the last distance of the hill, glancing back onto to confirm that her other pups were following. They veered toward Leaf with tails waggling, calling out to him with their nonsensical baby talk. Coli smiled as she drew closer to Jiva to inspect his leather trinket.



"The black one is Farina, the brown one is Fiora, and the whitish one is Florina. But they don't quite know their names yet, so... you can call them all Fifi, and they answer," Coli explained with a smile, directing the names more for Leaf's benefit, as he held their full attention now.

WC: 454 OOC: Sorry for the delay!

Jiva smiled and nodded. He was certain of all things Drin would have her little garden, but he wasn’t sure if it would be at their home or further away in her own little spot like she had in New Dawn. He wouldn’t be bothered if she moved it somewhere else... only after they made up. He wasn’t sure how long it would take her and was afraid it would take longer if she did take a garden somewhere else.

He gave a shy smile at her apology; “Things happen I suppose. One day we will have pups but it seems these were not meant to be...” He said, then his half smile became a true one as she mentioned leaf and the man looked back at the boy who still hid behind his legs, though was starting to come out of hiding, “We all needed each other, especially Drin...” He cut off at the reminder the woman was not talking to him anymore. It hurt but he deserved it and he wanted to show her that he would never ever do what he’d done again

He was not very good with stitching either, but he shrugged and looked forlorn but not too crushed she didn’t know much about it. He wasn’t the craftiest of his family either. He would suppose that was Magnolia, but he barely knew her, or any of his sisters and his new siblings.... well he had met them once and they were too shy or too... odd to show him what they could do. He perked up when she offered help to find resources for his project and his tail wagged; “Any of those would be perfect! Thank you!”

Jiva grinned as the puppies waddled behind their mother. His heart ached for his own, but they had Leaf and he was just as adorable. The boy was older than them though and quite shy of most things, but he warmed up well enough and soon enough the boy was moving from his father’s leg to sniff at the ground, but watched them, especially the big wolf mommy. “Fifi” He said quietly, having heard what the woman said. The other names she gave were a bit much for his few month old mouth to grasp but Fifi was not.

Jiva couldn’t help but smile; “Your children are beautiful. I am glad that Leaf may have some playmates, well if you are ok with a fox playing with your children.” He said. He had a feeling not everyone would be ok with it... he knew most in New Dawn would probably tolerate it for only a short time before something happened.

Since we have a more recent thread, I'd like to close this one. But thank you for being patient! :D
WC: 366


lost into the weight of gravity


Not meant to be... such a pity. Jiva certainly seemed to handle the tragedy well, better than Colibri would have reacted. Perhaps it was simply because he was young, and had his whole life ahead of him for fatherhood. She silently wished to Freya that he and Palaydrian would not be childless for much longer. They could not have chosen a better place to raise a family, with Vinátta's morals and protection.


He complimented her daughters again, and she cast her eyes down at the toddling wolfdogs. "...Thank you," she said softly, a faint smile gracing her muzzle. She did worry about their looks sometimes, how clearly doggish their markings and ears were, and hoped it wouldn't be something they would have to ask their wolf mother about. But once she removed herself from those insecurities, they really were beautiful little girls. A mixed blessing.


"And of course Leaf can play with them whenever he wants, so long as you're not worried about him being ganged up on." She pursed her lips in amusement, watching the three puppies sniffing the fox kit, tails wagging every which way. Once the novelty wore off, she knew they would play roughly with all the strength their little jaws could muster. They seemed to have boundless energy.


She moved into the garden, pawing through the plants as she searched for flowers. She pinched off a few of the wild chamomile flowers that weren't too withered -- they didn't look like much, but they were aromatic, and it might perfume the decoration and have a calming effect. "Here you go... and if you want to follow me to the vineyard, we can pick some curly vines and nice leaves to press... I'm sure the little ones would have fun running around all the big plants, too."


She offered a meek smile, shuffling down the hill in the direction of the lake, soon followed by her yipping puppies. It was a bit of a walk, but the children could use the exercise if they were going to nap later on. Besides, she wanted to help Jiva make his lady happy. It was the least she could do to welcome them home.
