Re: [Safeholme Grounds] You Were My Brother

"And by wilting and dying, it infuses the soil with nutrients to help the other plants yet to come," a quiet, dark smile grew on Caoranach's lips, and her eyes looked like a lioness who had begun to circle some prey. She seemed to have been waiting for a chance to spar, even if just with words. "As ...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

"Look at it this way, Jane," Ruarc said in a hushed tone as he let his head sag a bit. "You're here because you're the best person Ah could want watching my back right now. Ah don't know what's waiting in there, and Ah don't have anyone else to turn to." Turning slightly to face the American, Ruarc ...

Re: [Safeholme Grounds] You Were My Brother

"Ahh, the hubris of science," Caoranach said, sounding almost reminiscent as she looked away dreamily. "To think one can improve upon nature. Unless you intend to brew a potion for every wilting flower in the forest, nature will always win out in the end." The faerie squared her stance and lifted he...

Re: [Safeholme Grounds] You Were My Brother

A punctuated titter came from behind Percy. Behind him stood Caoranach, having seemingly manifested out of thin air in the way she seemed to enjoy doing. The Lady of the Fey Court had arrived for a rather similar purpose, as it had been almost a month since the last time she came along to pester him...

Re: [Chapter 1.3] A Theater of Gods

If there was one thing to be said, Ruarc wore the coat and hat much better now than he did when he was a teenager. He filled the outfit well, and with the boost he had received he felt good. Squaring his shoulders as Aurus began speaking again Ruarc's body language had shifted considerably, and he a...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

The students struck out much quicker on this next round, and Ruarc made a mental note to compliment the adaptability. Vrey fired a handful of transmuted arrows at him. They weren't particularly dangerous as the lacerations stung, and had she aimed for his hand he may have been surprised enough to ac...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

The moment Jane said something Ruarc clenched his jaw and grumbled something under his breath. "Look," Ruarc started to say. "I don't have much for urban missions, and a track jacket is less noticeable than rune inlaid leather armor and a bandolier." Shoving his hands into the jacket pockets with an...

Re: [Chapter 1.3] A Theater of Gods

Pieces of an obnoxiously large puzzle were slowly falling into place as Ruarc cataloged the new information on a mental web diagram. He still lacked necessary information to completely fill it in, and even now felt only slightly more confident than he had an hour prior. A number of pieces stood out ...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

"To do list: optimize a combat ready ward spell" Ruarc noted to Loaise. The students were hounding him. As opposed to five separate strikes, they appeared to have consolidated into two larger assaults. Although at this point it was more through hearing and feeling that the druid determined how much...

Re: [Chapter 1] Once a Marine.

"My only question, Schwarzenegger," Cormac started, seeming to brush past being momentarily awe struck at the site of a retro war droid. "Why do you have ear plugs with you?" The elder of the two Irishmen also seemed to have regained his senses after, well, whatever it was that had come over him. He...
