[AW] When I walk the ground shakes, boom
Drifter Bay
#1
Riot stood at the water's edge, staring across the river. Nothing moved over there save for the wind rustling in the trees. She saw no one skulking in the forest or along the riverbank. Yet the scents here were a dead giveaway; this was the edge of a pack land. The river itself formed a natural barrier and the young coywolf idly wondered if they claimed the waterway as part of their territory. It might be difficult to patrol and defend a river. She snickered at the thought, then bent over and dared to take a quick drink. The water was cool and refreshing. When she sat up, it dripped off the damp tip of her muzzle, several of the drops splattering on her forelegs and tickling her.

She still didn't know which was more rude: sitting here and waiting for someone to happen across her or breaking the silent stillness with a howl to announce her presence. Riot decided to throw caution to the wind and tipped her head back, sending up a short howl that simply relayed the message, "I'm at your borders! I come in peace!' The yearling then settled back onto her haunches -- she had comfortably assumed her Lupus shift for this particular venture -- and waited patiently, lifting her white right forepaw to her mouth to nibble at her toenails to keep herself occupied in the meantime.

Hello || +294


Not much had been happening in Salsola lately, though the tall female had heard tell of something to do with horses. She didn’t much care for livestock, Korosk was plenty enough work for her as it was. In fact, she was out riding her husky stallion while her mind mused on the quiet summer that had developed. She was keeping busy though, stocking her stores full of furs, hides, and leather. Each day was spent stretching and drying the hides, and put on the herbs that would help in their coloration. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with all the leather, but in case it was needed, it was there.

She was on her way back to her small hut on the beach when a call rang out nearby. She lifted her head, ears perked, to listen to the sound. Whoever it was was making themselves known, and they were very close. Usually, Lillith would have rather not interacted with a loner, but she was currently the only one around and she had a duty to her pack to find out who it was. She turned her hulking, ebony stallion to head towards the sound.

It did not take long to reach the coyote who had called; the small female stood across the small river that marked the edge of Salsola’s territory. Lillith walked Korosk up to the edge of the river and gazed down at the small, insignificant creature. She was nothing special, save the strange white markings on her face, and the mismatched eyes. Still, the small female chose to stay in her dirty four-legged form and the white markings marked her as one lacking soul. Lillith looked at her with a raised brow, Yes? was all she said.

Hi, thanks for joining. :)

When she heard the sound of approaching footfalls, Riot stopped gnawing on her foot, placed it on the ground and looked up expectantly. As the sound grew louder, her brow furrowed quizzically, though only for a few seconds. She pictured Priam and Bairre even as she realized that someone must be approaching on horseback. That meant that the rider would be in Optime form, most likely. Riot always felt slightly off kilter when interacting with someone in another form and debated quickly shifting to accommodate her greeter. Before she had a chance, though, a great black stallion emerged into view with a strikingly red she-wolf sitting astride his muscular back. Riot sucked in a deep breath and simply squared her shoulders.

The Luperci didn't seem to have much to say to her (perhaps unwanted) guest. Undeterred, the coywolf smiled and cleared her throat. "Hi, I'm Riot Stormwing. It seems there's a pack here --" Riot paused, choking back a giggle at her own obviousness. "-- and, well, would you mind answering a few questions?" Even if she only learned the pack's name and a few little morsels of information, Riot would be satisfied. She'd come here to learn about the packs and choose one based on the best fit, though she was quickly coming to realize that they didn't necessarily make it easy for her to learn. She might just have to join one sort of blindly.

Then again, maybe the wolves here would be a bit less secretive than Chloé and Priam. Although she kept her banded muzzle pointed downward out of respect for her hostess, Riot did glance up at the woman's face. Judging by the stony expression there -- which her dark steed seemed to share -- even the characteristically optimistic Riot didn't hold out much hope for that...

Lillith is not a pleasant lady || +000


It did not take a wise wolf to note that this small creature was young and naïve and with no inkling of where she was or what she was getting herself into. Lillith remained silent as the girl spoke as if to herself about there being a pack here, and then brazenly asking if Lillith could answer a few questions.

The red hued femme’s brow raised even higher, and if sensing his mistress’ annoyed yet bemused mood, Korosk flicked his long tail several times before bending down to nibble at the grass. Lillith absent-mindedly reached a hand tipped with talon like claws down to scratch at his neck.

Still no one else seemed to be coming, so it seemed she would have to dispatch this little one. She gave the smallest of sighs, One would be careful not to stick their nose into the wasps’ nest. She said, You stand upon the edge to the Thistle Kingdom; only those unafraid of being pricked venture any further. Her poetic threats amused her, and so Lillith let slip a slightly sinister smile full of teeth that had been sharpened to points.

I like her!

The crimson stranger offered a cryptic reply, waves of annoyance rolling off her and toward Riot, subtle but very much there. She reached out a clawed hand and scratched her mount's neck, sighing impatiently and then giving her unwanted guest a sinister smile. The Stormwing observed all of this with shrewd senses, yet she didn't rise to the bait nor let the woman's unfriendliness disturb or deter her. She was here to learn, that was all, and though the locals' penchant for ambiguity and secrecy was starting to grate on her nerves -- how on earth was she supposed to find a suitable pack if they were all going to be like this? -- she did not betray her frustration. Good-natured and determined, she would push just enough, get a few small facts, then move on to the next one. Besides, maybe if they didn't want to have anything to do with her, then she shouldn't want anything to do with them.

"I'm not afraid of wasps or thistles," Riot answered, which wasn't even smart-assery or a bluff. In fact, Riot had been subjected to horrible cruelties during her first year of life and didn't fear much of anything, least of all getting some bangs or bruises in the pursuit of knowledge. This fearlessness perhaps attributed to her buoyant, devil-may-care attitude, for better or for worse. "I'll take a few stings and pricks if that's the price of admission for some information," she added, the white tip of her tail twitching like a cat's. Her shapely brown head canted slightly. "I'm not here to be some nosey bother. I'm just trying to learn about my environment." Because, you see, I'm an alien. Obviously, she wanted to add, but bit back on the joke for once.

I know this post is a little strange, but there’s a thread prompt in Salsola to spread ridiculous lies about the pack; hope you found it amusing! || +000


Lillith was surprised at the coyote’s reaction; she had expected at the most a retreat and at least confusion, but instead she received more prodding. The young female was determined, if dimwittedly so, but Lillith had to give it to her for not backing down very easily. Still, this wasn’t enough to convince the red hued lady that this Riot Stormwing was worthy of her time or attention.

The Salsolan woman crossed her arms at the wrist and leaned forward in the saddle, cocking an ear at the girl, Alright, you want to know about the Thistle Kingdom, hm? She said softly, and with a voice that boasted nothing but dark sincerity, It is a dark pack made up of only mad females. We lure in men only to mate with them; then we eat them! She grinned darkly, Our only intentions are to spread female supremacy throughout the land. You look like you would make a good breeder; you would be kept pregnant constantly until you proved yourself worthy of generating good, female stock, only then would you be allowed into the upper echelon.

Lillith leaned back then in the saddle and shrugged her shoulders, We all had to do it, even I gave birth to five litters in succession before they allowed me respite, why else do you think I’m so thin? She gestured at her body then, Luckily now I’m free from child bearing and can lure males instead; or breeders, as the chance may be. She looked down at Riot then, as if contemplating the purchase of a fine cut of meat.

I did, haha.

The she-wolf relented so suddenly that a red flag snapped to attention in the back of Riot's mind. Momentarily, she felt tempted to reply with a strong, "Nope," just to flip the rhetorical question on its head, or else sass her about the obviousness of such a query. Instead, Riot shifted her weight and replied with a light, "Yup, I would." Meanwhile, she prepared herself for the forthcoming information, already suspicious of it because of the woman's rapid and inexplicable change of heart. Riot could easily be mistaken for silly or stupid -- and, sometimes, she was -- yet there was a well-oiled machine between those ridiculously large ears.

She began by explaining the pack's tradition toward female supremacy, which perked Riot's interest visibly; her eyes shone a bit brighter and her white ears tilted forward. The story escalated quickly then, becoming less believable with every word. Actually, the concept wasn't that outrageous; Riot could easily picture a pack of powerful females who looked down on anyone who happened to come with dangly bits. The mention of cannibalizing these unfortunate gentlemen, complete with the female's campaigning for Riot's fitness as a breeder were what took the tale over-the-top. At least, the Stormwing thought so, though the way the Optime stared at her did manage to plant a seed of doubt in the yearling's head.

Debating on how to react to this information, Riot decided to pursue the woman's bluff. "Well, shit, where do I sign up?" she asked simply, trying to look the part of a young woman who'd always dreamed of becoming a breeding machine by forcing a toothy smile onto her banded face. Hopefully she looked appropriately mad as well.

Sorry bout the wait again|| +000


At first Lillith believed her well-crafted lie had worked, but still the ‘yote female seemed to realize it ridiculousness, though Lil could tell that she was still hesitant as she asked where she could “sign up”. Lillith let out a sigh again, pondering what she could do next. She could call for a leader but what good would that do? This little thing would need a sponsor if she had any real desire to join, and the red hued femme was not in the least bit interested in being that party.

The Family member dismounted from her horse then and made to move towards Riot. She began wading in the river, the cool water causing her skin to prickle as it came up to her thighs. But soon she was on the other side and a yard away from the coyote, If you want any respect, move out of the lesser form. Lillith said nonchalantly. She wasn’t going to speak down to this coyote any longer, unless the girl wanted to be spoken to like a child. The four legged form was for children only, in Lillith’s mind, and any adult to actively use it for no real purpose other than to be down in the dirt would not be given any consideration.

Still, Lillith pondered what exactly she was going to do. This female would have to prove herself in some fashion before the tall lady would give away even the smallest bit of truthful information. Draugr had obviously seen something in Lillith when she had run into her to immediately offer her entrance into Salsola; that would not be the case in this situation.

Not a problem. :)

The red woman sighed, clearly weary of Riot and her antics. The young coywolf bit back a playful smirk, then pulled a face when the other she-wolf slid off her steed's back and began to cross the river. Riot took a few steps back, keeping her head level and draping her tail on the ground as she made room for the bipedal Luperci. She stepped decisively onto the bank, and though she didn't fold her arms and leer at Riot, so to speak, she cut an intimidating figure. She also emanated some pretty gnarly vibes.

"...wasn't aware there was a lesser form," Riot replied honestly, blinking at this new notion. Some thought wolves were superior, others believed that coyotes were the better species. Now it seemed there were opinions on the various forms as well. The whole caste system made the yearling feel a little weird, though she didn't have any particular qualms about shifting, even if the crass command left a little bit of a bad taste in her mouth...

Transforming took a moment of time and focus. When the transition was complete, Riot hoisted herself to her feet. She felt a bit less "beneath" the other she-wolf in this form, at least, and that was advantageous. She blotted her white fingers on her cinnamon thighs and looked directly at the other she-wolf, albeit without staring her in the eye -- giving respect without presenting a challenge. Her tail curled tightly around her muscular right thigh and she squared her shoulders, took a breath, but tried to maintain a relaxed posture.

"This better?" she asked, ears quivering. She kept the sarcasm out of her voice. "Why is walking on four legs considered a 'lesser form'?" she then wondered baldly, made overwhemlingly curious by this concept so that she couldn't help but ask.

Hey, I just wanted to ask, were you actually considering having Riot join SL? || +398


The girl was quick to mention that she hadn’t been aware that there was a lesser form, something that caused Lillith to wrinkle her nose. But instead of chiding Riot, she remained silent as the female began to shift. It seemed like a smooth process, which hinted that the coyote changed often, something that Lillith never did. If Lil where to decide to move to any of her lesser forms, she would be writhing in agony for hours most likely; her body was just not used to the change, and the fact that she was so skinny and tall did not help matters.

Once the change was done, the white tipped coyote female asked why the form was considered lesser. Lillith raised her brows and walked around the girl, looked at her intently. She was so small, but then again many of Lillith’s peers seemed small; the wolf towered over this girl; the top of Riot’s head would not even rest against Lillith’s collar bone if she were to hold her close.

Even in this form, she was not much to look at; she was dirty, from having walked so close to the ground, and despite being petite there were no breasts or curves to boast femininity; in fact, she was very much like Lillith, just with a tad more chub and in a more compact body. Still, she didn’t seem weak, just average.

It was only after Lillith had circled her that she responded to the question, By an act of nature, god or science we have been given the power to change our form into something greater than our ancestors. She began, standing in front of Riot and crossing her arms, What is the purpose of the four legged form? What advantage does it give us that Optime does not? The questions were not meant to be answered, for there were no good answers, I have not been in the lesser form since I was a child, and that is exactly what it is, a form for children, best used to suckle at the teat and play in the dirt. Her words were cool and calculating, This form, She said, gesturing to Riot, is the adult form, the enlightened form; we are like gods in Optime; why would anyone choose to be in the dirt? Now this was question to be answered; she wondered what the coyote would say.

I honestly don't have anything planned. I'm letting things happen totally IC. :)

Instead of answering her, the nameless red she-wolf circled Riot, staring at her like a piece of meat at the supermarket. At first, Riot amused herself with this analogy, though as the other Luperci continued to circle her slowly, like a shark, the moment lost its humor. Although not exactly self-conscious, the coywolf felt herself being scrutinized heavily and shifted her weight, her arms crossing over her small bosom. Her mismatched eyes followed the other canine's movements and she blew a bit of choppy brown bangs out of her eyes to keep her vision clear. Finally, when Riot -- who never felt awkward -- began to feel the need to fidget, the other woman spoke.

Not realizing that the question was intended to be rhetorical, the coywolf took it upon herself to answer forthrightly. "Well, I can't speak for anybody else, but I can run and hunt a hell of a lot better on four legs than two." She paused, her tail flicking. "I guess it's always felt more natural to me." Before she could elaborate any further, the other she-wolf spoke again, condemning the Lupus form and patronizing anyone with a preference for it, insisting that it was puerile. Riot's tongue slid along her teeth and she remained unusually silent until prompted to answer another question.

"I guess I don't feel the need to be godlike," she replied honestly, eyes sharp. "I'm new to this place, so I just don't understand why some think coyotes are better than wolves and vice versa, or why Optime is superior to Lupus, or any of the local culture," she admitted in the next beat. And all of the prejudice was starting to leave a little bit of a bad taste in her mouth. "I'm not going to judge -- judging's just not for me -- but I'm pretty sure I won't fit in, at least here," she added, gesturing toward the tall Optime and to the pack land beyond her, across the river, as she took a step backward.

Alrighty, just wondering! :D || +329


Lillith’s ears peeked slightly as Riot spoke of the natural feel of being on two legs. How odd, since she was a Luperci, being on four legs no longer was natural. Lillith had heard of such sentiment before, of a pack called New Dawn that chose to live a primitive lifestyle, despite their ability to shift. What idiots they were; the tall lady hoped to never meet one of them, she would knock some sense into those worthless imbeciles if she did.

Then, in response to Lillith’s last statement, the coyote said she did not want to be god-like, which was a shame, since the option was open to her. She was either extremely humble, or extremely stupid, and Lillith was most sure that it was the latter. But when the girl spoke of others believing in the supremacy of races over others, and that it was the same as Lillith’s belief of Luperci supremacy, and that she could not judge, but could definitely ascertain that she was not right for here, the Salsolan female could not help but laugh, So you do have some form of intelligence then? I’m glad you could come to that conclusion for yourself.

She grinned darkly down at the girl, You’re right, this place is not for you, and had you not had the decency to call out as you did, who would be to say that I or someone else did not kill you for coming so close to the borders. Her grin faded, and eyes became sharp, My advice to you little girl, is to put your feelings of self-righteousness down and find a pack that can protect you; the wild is unforgiving and hostile. She sneered, but then straightened up to her full height and became aloof again, I hear that there are lovely, welcoming packs full of good hearted canines to the south, perhaps you should try there. Her voice was dripping with sickly sarcasm.

Thanks for the thread! I enjoyed it. :)

The nameless Optime patronized Riot to an extreme degree, insulting her intelligence, threatening her passively and then speaking condescendingly to her once more, even addressing her as "little girl." Although her parting words could be considered sound advice, they dripped with sarcasm. Riot felt a bubble of indignant heat in her belly, yet it took quite a lot to get a rise from her and she certainly wouldn't give this woman the satisfaction. She was a nasty piece of work and Riot didn't think she done anything to deserve this horrid treatment. Well, it was her problem, not Riot's, and, luckily, she wouldn't have to stick around and subject herself to any more if it. Just as soon as she excused herself, they would never have to see each other again.

"All righty then," Riot said, patting her hands together in the universal signal that she was ready to go. She wouldn't apologize for wasting her time, as the red Luperci neither deserved nor likely wanted an apology. She would just sneer at it anyway, surely. And, despite her ugly demeanor, Riot had learned something from her. One of the things she'd learned was that she should never come anywhere near Salsola again. There were other things she'd take away from this experience too, like how to deal with incredibly and unncessarily unpleasant people. There would be many more of these in her life.

Flashing the larger woman a genuinely grateful grin, Riot said, "Thanks a billion." She lifted a hand in a crude imitation of a gun and pointed it while clicking her tongue and winking. Without another word, she turned away from the other she-wolf and began to walk away. After traipsing a few hundred yards, she made a point of shifting into her Lupus form within the other wolf's view, then disappeared into the distance.
