Re: [The Office] An Unwanted Gift

“Ciarán… Winfield…” Ruarc repeated plainly as he added the full name to his notes. Once it became evident Six was well and truly gone he sat his pencil down and considered the notes. A few bread crumbs, but little context outside of the Druid association. Pulling out a handkerchief he grabbed the wh...

Re: [The Forest] The Path Less Traveled By

“Ha ha, it is good to see such interest from the new generation of druids,” Engleby appeared amused as he watched Drysi parse out all of the opportunities that now lay before her. “I will always recommend new druids make a trip to the Keep. It’s proper name is the Carneath Keep, and it has served as...

Re: [The Farm] A Calling & A Summons

"Laoise will be biting at my back with cutting close to the festival like that," Ruarc responded thoughtfully. He was leaned back on the couch and looking up at the ceiling while he spoke, and seemed to be running through a mental schedule. "I'll make it work though. Laoise can stay b...

Re: [The Forest] The Path Less Traveled By

“That reclusive nature has saved our Order from extinction more than once,” Engleby’s voice carried through the darkness as the group dispersed slightly on the way back to the fire. With the wave of a hand the stars above seemed to grow more vibrant, shedding enough light to allow the pilgrims safe ...

Re: [The Office] An Unwanted Gift

It was tempting to say something about a rabbit hole going deeper as he heard a new voice manifest, but it felt more like a golf divot especially once Six once again proved bizarrely resilient as it resuscitated in a totally not startling manner. The woman’s voice had given him nothing beyond what h...

Re: [The Farm] A Calling & A Summons

There was little evidence of Ruarc being phased by the rebuke beyond a corner of his mouth tensing briefly before he sipped at his tea. The jab was warranted, so he didn’t press the matter further. Instead he leaned against the arm of the couch and focused on the explanation of the Library hierarchy...

Re: Best Left Unearthed

A twist here, a turn there, three spike traps, another one of those snake dispensers, and an uncomfortably close crawl through a jammed doorway saw Griffin squeezing into a vast, dark room. The sound of water falling into a small pool echod through the darkness. Casting his small torch around, the n...

Re: A Calling & A Summons

A cocked eyebrow betrayed Ruarc’s curiosity. He’d never heard Jane call someone outside of Safeholme and its affiliates a colleague . Honestly, if the news had come from anyone at the school but Jane he would have been hard pressed to believe that a random colleague bumped into some Lamplighters in ...

Re: Chapter 2 - Preamble: Safeholme Fall Festival

Willow had just leaned forward and begun cooing and wiggling her finger towards Gideon when Drysi made her proclamation. Freezing, she shifted her eyes to look at Drysi, and merely blinked a few times as she watched the other girl go through her motions. It wasn’t particularly surprising, and was ac...

Re: A Calling & A Summons

Ruarc subconsciously squinted as Eryl entered the barn, and doubly so when she flashed a rather malicious look. Even Caoranach had taken seven or eight years for him to warm up to her, so Eryl was still rather firmly distrusted. However, a bronco's huff signaled the Irishman's relent to any paying a...
