Early shift for Fiora

POSTED: Tue Feb 12, 2013 9:28 pm

Foredating this to February the 20th. In Vinátta, between Raudr Vineyard and the Sacred Grove
please, make it stop


She was getting bigger, though she still looked like a child compared to her much larger sister. She was almost disappointed in that, as if growing bigger would raise her confidence and cause her to be less of a frightened canine. All she could think of was that she was not getting bigger and the beauty that she wanted seemed to not be there, or so she thought to herself. In reality she was growing into a pretty little thing, just as a lupus formed child she was starting to form the curves that attracted the male eye but she did not really understand it. There was a day she simply asked her mother about her two legged form while her sisters were playing just a foot away, the question caught their attention and Colibri began to explain. It was something natural for everyone with the genes, whatever that meant. The chocolate colored woman told them that they too would get the form and she went further to say it was not going to be the most pleasant thing.

From that day the child had not really thought of the whole shifting situation, it was just another thing for her to be afraid of. Shaking her head she moved away from the comfort of her home, away from the shelter though this time she passed the stables. She now avoided that place, always shivering in fear when she thought of the encounter she had with the equine that Sky called Maia. It was crazy how some of her pack-mates seemed to keep the horses as their friends and pets, how could someone love something as unpredictable as that? She just could not get it, further her paws moved along the thinning snow. Her heart longed for the beautiful flowers and colors her mother spoke of, wanting to lay her eyes on butterflies and colorful birds that would chirp in the mornings.

Fiora’s mind was not aware of her surroundings, unaware of how far she had strayed. She was unaware of the creature that was grazing on a patch of withered grass, not noticing that his attention had wavered to her moving form. The first thing she remembered was the sharp snorts that soon became like a vibrating thunder, that very sound made her thoughts disappear into a cloud of smoke as she exhaled through her mouth. Before her baby blue eys even landed on the creature’s body they had widened in fear, her movements stopping all together as she rooted to the hard ground. The flaxen stallion dug his hooves into the ground, pawing at it impatiently as he set his golden eyes on the smaller creature. Shaking his head he figured her a threat, something he needed to scare off so he could graze in peace or at least try to graze. Being without a herd had proven difficult for him, his salt colored mane shaking wildly with his head before he finally moved his body to charge.

He was coming closer, his speed suggested she would not live past this day as her body ceased up in fear but that was not the only feeling that laced in her blood. Soon a blinding pain was racing through her child form, burning her from the inside. Surely her blood was boiling as she let out a very sharp howl of pain that made the equine stop in his tracks just a ruler measurement away from her but he no longer noticed him. She for once was able to ignore the presence of the charging beast, wanting nothing more than this fire to stop. Her legs buckled from under her as she heard the sound of her own bones breaking and resetting into a new position, she knew that this would happen eventually but all she could think of was the fear and pain she was going though.

Fiora’s vision wavered, and another scream belted out of her lungs only to make the large horse rear up as if she was the one hurting him. She returned her scream with one of his own, snorting more loudly and now pacing around the now changing wolf. Everything was going red; tunnel vision was dotting her eyes as she tried to look around. She wanted her mother, wanted her to make the pain go away. The only thing her eyes could focus on was her front paw, outstretch in front of her as she laid face down in the snow. Though it was not a paw, no it was a hand. Slitted eyes focused on that as she moved the five fingered limb as if she had never seen one before but pain was still singing her body. She did not notice the black hair that now covered her head that was tossed on the ground, nor did she notice hat new legs and wide hips she had acquired. She did not even notice the uncomfortable feeling of her new breasts trapped between her and the hard ground. No the only thing she noticed was the darkness closing in on her as the pain started to subside, and then she was out.

The horse that charged her was not just two feet to her left, looking at her with bewildered eyes. No longer wanting to chase her off, instead he had a fascination for her new form. Curiosity keeping him close to her.

okay so a horse charged her and she shifted.. though she was in so much pain and full of fear she passed out.. I would like an adult to come and wake her up though Colibri would be cool but I do not mind anyone that is related to her or something like that. even a sibling haha. I don't care really I guess. Sorry this does suck.. my first shirting experience.. oh the horse

anything you can do I can do better.

In no time at all the young female had grown, she was taller and longer but still so much smaller than all the other wolves in her pack. The girl was not sure if she could really call them ‘her’ pack because she wasn't sure how many were now in it. She still remembered when her mother and sisters had survived that hurricane, which she didn't know was a hurricane at the time. But Farina could sense that she was not like them, her sisters; it was not something she could explain out loud so she did not bother trying to. She’d been a fool and wandered too far, now she was lost and desperately trying to find her way back.

She had just about finished cleaning off her soft furred body, having to do what amounted to advanced acrobatics to even begin that task, when the faint murmurs of screams reached her ears. Immediately, Farina sprang up, facing the direction in which the voice - or voices - originated with squared shoulders and tail held out behind her on level with her spine, wavering just a bit when she realized that the sounds were indeed not far off and whoever was out there, could probably detected her presence in the place that she was located. As usual, the urge to investigate and quench her curiosity overcame her: she was still a young wolf no matter how ancient her dull, cold grey showed at times.

Shadows concealed her well enough, but the wind was not in her favor, and they would soon learn of her presence if they were northward of her current position. Still, she trotted along, those gray eyes fixed on the path ahead. Despite her build, she always believed that she was a stealthy beast, and her body had become her closest friend - there was not one detail she overlooked. Thus, she easily realized and resigned herself to the fact that she would be forced to present herself to someone. Oh well though.

Then she and the beast came into view, and Farina was in complete shock. The one closest to her had chocolate-brown fur, soft cream cheeks, and those German shepherd looks. Just like Fiora. Even from the slight distance, 'Rina discerned madness in her eyes. The beast, that horse, seemed like a monster was. If she had not been so emotionally detached, she supposed she would be feeling a great fear. But luckily, such did not occur unless her life was clearly in danger, and instead unease stirred and even that faded away as everything always did. "Fiora...?" she called out to her sister, hoping it was her.

it's too soon to lose you

Colibri had gone to the Sacred Grove that day, seeking quiet meditation and a chance to escape her thoughts. The snow-laden boughs muted all outside noises, save for the sound of her own breathing and the thrum of her heartbeat. Frost and pine needles crunched beneath her feet as the Sannindi stepped forward, crouching before the mound of stones that comprised the Horgr shrine. Delicately she brushed them clean from snow, shivering at the touch of the frozen stones. The mystical place always affected her powerfully, making her feel meek and humbled by the powerful presence of the tallest tree. She touched the worn pendant around her throat, the piece of this tree that bound her to the land and all others who dwell there. Then, her own personal ritual, she traced the shape of the rune scarred into her chest. She then peeked around behind her, looking over both shoulders to see if Miskunn was present, but did not notice the solitary Godja. It was then Coli let out a sigh and seated herself cross-legged on the cold ground, folding her fingers neatly on her lap and bowing her head.

Coli would have been embarrassed if anyone saw her trying to meditate, but she closed her eyes and tried to relax, emptying her mind of the clamoring doubts and worries. Stress tended to compound into more stress, and during the winter she did not have her gardening to unwind and switch her mind off. She thought first of Niernan, how their friendship had recently flourished into a deeper understanding, and how it frightened her to entrust her secrets to anyone like she had with him. She thought of Rin, worrying that the once-Anatheman might have decided this pack was not right for her either. Saul and Lilin's faces floated into her thoughts, and she pined for them, wanting to spend time with them without the responsibilities they had to shoulder together. Mostly she just thought of her daughters, and how rapidly they were developing into women. Florina was fully healed from her hawk attack, but who knew when the next accident would injure her; there would always be more things to hurt her. Farina and Fiora had gone with their sister outside of the borders without a chaperone, which terrified the mother, knowing full well the dangers of the lawless territories. Young girls should never travel without protection, even if all three sisters stayed with each other. Coli growled faintly and opened her eyes again, frowning. This wasn't how meditation worked. She was getting more upset, not calming down.

It was then she heard the scream. Colibri's heart flew into her throat, and she scrambled unceremoniously to her feet, blue eyes wide with horror. She knew, she just knew it was one of her daughters, and a quick sob hitched in her voice as she immediately jumped to the worst possible conclusion. The small wolf ran as hard and fast as she could, cringing at the second pained howl that rent the air. At least she was going in the right direction, but oh gods, please let her children be all right! She slipped on the snow several times, dropping to scrape her hands and knees on the ice, but always drove forward in the direction of the vineyard.

She saw the horse first. It was a big hideous mud-brown brute with boulder hooves and murder in its eyes, and Coli's lips peeled back in a vicious snarl, ready to kill it if it hurt her daughters. She had never trusted those damn beasts! If it had trampled her babies, why -- Her blue eyes darted away for a second, and she saw Farina standing nearby, calling to the crumpled shape laying on the ground. Fiora wasn't moving.

"Fiora! Fiora, are you all right? Farina, are you hurt, is your sister okay? I heard screaming!" Coli dashed over to her wolfdog daughters, skidding to a surprised halt when she realized what had happened to her firstborn. The shapes were all wrong, her legs were so long and slender, the cascading black hair of her mane -- she had shifted. "You're too young to shift," Coli said stupidly, staring down at her child's prone figure. She whirled back to bark at the horse, waving her arms above her head to try and chase it off. "Get out of here, stupid beast, leave her alone!"

please, make it stop


The pain was just too much for the child’s body, her mind swam in a sea of darkness. There was no vision or dream, not even a memory seemed to drop into her mind. It was blank, washed clean with nothing but the feeling of pain and fear. Was she even still alive, could the equine beast have trampled her? Was this the reason for the pain, she could not remember anymore. The child began to search in her own mind, trying to remember why she was out cold, how long she had been laying her in the thinning snow. It was almost instantaneous, the flooding of her dark mind with a blinding light. A memory, her mind whispered only to plunge her into what happened. Her body cringed away at the memory, though she still remained on the ground.

A voice caused her movements to stir, her fingers to twitch. The sensation was unnatural to her, again she heard her name and she suddenly felt the urge to move. Something felt rather uncomfortable again the snow, painful almost. What was with that, why did her chest hurt? How far did she fall, if the memory was correct she fell forward but that did not mean she could have fallen hard enough to hurt her chest. She was confused, not moving again until her mother’s voice filled her ears once more but the words were strange. Shift, how could she have shifted? Like her mother said she was too young to shift, she had another month before that was possible but that was not the reason her dodger blue eyes snapped open in alarm. No it was the sound that came from close off, a sudden whinny.

The beast, the thing that charged her and should have killed her. Where was is, but her mind was distracted once again but this time by what she focused on. What was that before her, was that her hand? Confusion filled her mind as she moved the fingers slowly, moving them closer so that she could push her body in an upright position. It was awkward, strange to feel and yet almost exciting at the same time. Her fascination shifted to fear when her mother’s voice raised talking to a stupid beast, the horse. He was still here, how was that possible?

Her eyes moved from her newly long legs to her sister’s four-legged form before her, when s=did she get here? She blinked a few times before letting her eyes land on her mother and the agitated equine creature, a yelp escaping her lips. As if on cue the beast moved away when he heard that very sound, like she was the one telling him to back off. He did not run away but instead distanced himself a short distance before snorting in reaction to the older woman, moving his hoof across the ground to show her he was not moving any further.

M-m-momma.. she squeaked in a more chiming voice than before, moving her gaze from her back to her darker sister. F-Farina.. she said in the same frightened tone, what was she to say? What was going on, she wanted to ask but confusion and fear still seemed to have control over her motor skills.

okay sorry about the late reply, and the sucky reply.. she is just confused!

Farina vin Haki
anything you can do I can do better.

Farina wasn't sure how she was supposed to react to her sister. Pain. Farina decided in that moment that she didn't like it. It was really quite rude of it. The world you see was just one big playground to the clumsy paced wolf dog pup and all she truly wanted was to play at mock-adventures, to run and jump on paper bags, to enjoy life and to live in the moment -- she couldn't well do it alone now, could she? She had her sisters, sure, but one had transformed.. into this thing. Farina in her naive and ever-forgetting ways had no clue that she was repeatedly putting herself in danger's claws. It was then that she finally spoke up. Then, that she finally looked at her and opened her mouth. As if it was her she was looking at. Noo no, it was her new form that she couldn’t get her eyes away from. She was probably like anyone else who was not used to the sight of luperci. This was not her sister. She was one of those who wanted to please others. One of those who wanted to stay out of conflicts. One of those small, scared, selfless creatures you hated because they were so sweet. "Mommma... What's happening to her..", the young one asked.

it's too soon to lose you

Colibri frantically tested the air for the telltale scent of blood, and found nothing. Farina seemed calm, if a bit confused, inscrutably dark eyes focused on her sister. Had her girls escaped injury after all? Her heart was hammering in her chest, racing with the fear that spurred her to answer that terrified howl. She never wanted to hear her daughters scream like that, the sound was going to haunt her. Coli glowered at the horse, blue eyes cold as chips of ice as she growled under her breath. She didn't recognize it as one of Saul, Shiloh, or Niernan's beasts of burden, and she did not appreciate its boldness in remaining close by. As long as it did not try to approach, though, it would be spared from her fangs.

The tiny yelp of surprise drew her attention back to Fiora. Her eldest daughter was coming to, sitting upright and looking positively dazed. Coli whined softly in concern, moving to hold her hands in case she needed help balancing. It was an early shift for certain; was she going to be okay? It wouldn't stunt her growth, would it? Coli did not know much more than the basics of the Luperci inheritance, and when Farina hesitantly voiced the question, she exhaled in a slow sigh. They both seemed shaken; this was going to take some explaining. She crouched down to their level, motioning for Farina to come sit next to her family.

"Fiora, you just had your first shift... It opens new possibilities for you. Farina, soon you and Florina will be able to shift forms as well. It's... part of growing up. I'm sorry if I didn't prepare you for this..." Coli frowned for a moment, wishing her pale-furred daughter was present so that she could explain everything at once. She would just have to remember what was said so that she could fill in Florina later. Coli couldn't remember having her first shift explained to her, but she could half-recall helping to counsel a young Dahlian girl many seasons ago. That memory replaced her frown with a gentle smile, remembering that she had wished to someday have a pretty little daughter of her own that she could have "the talk" with. Miraculously, she had been blessed with three, and they actually needed their mother's advice for once. Her anxiety began to fade as she sought the proper words.

"The first time takes a lot of energy, so you'll be too tired to change again. But once you get some rest, you can shift at will. You may find with time that you're more comfortable on two legs than four, or that you prefer staying on four like when you were little puppies, and that's all right too." She swallowed nervously, glancing from Fiora to Farina to see if they had followup questions. They had seen Coli shift before, so it couldn't be that much of a surprise. It was worrisome that Fio had been frightened into the change so early, though. Damn horse. She squeezed her daughter's fingers reassuringly, hoping to instill that this was a good change and not a scary one.
