Coming to terms with a personal loss, though not without the comfort and support of those close to her.

Oh yikes x2, just noticed the last update was over a year ago.

Enjoying some snuggles.

8th of July, 2019
Oh yikes, just noticed last update was over a year ago.

Keeping to herself and a few close friends, for the most part.
Reunited with a nightmare from her past; Renoir. Tried to face him without showing her fear, but crumbled almost immediately under his gaze. Pursued by the wolf leisurely for the most part, until very suddenly he was on her heels. Lost any courage she'd gathered then. Slunk away after he lost interest to calm down in private. Ashamed over the whole thing, that even after all this time, he could still terrify her just as he had years ago.

Found hours later by Fenrir. Conversed with the wolf about a sensitive topic. Initially wary, but by the end found herself tentatively believing him. By no means believes the path ahead will be easy, but given reason to hope.

It asked a crumb - of me."

Oh, he knew that he was just

Oh, he knew that he was just being a whiny bitch at this point. Still, he couldn't help how jealous he felt, that awful pit of backstabbed feelings that brewed deep down. Of course, he'd keep his anxiety welled up towards his loved ones, like always, and then let them all out of deer like Talla.

In a way, it was debatable whether or not his jealousy was justified, considering how he had once lost everything dear to him in the past... Faith... Irene...

The feather...

He stiffened at the thought, shaking his head a little in frustration. Maybe one could call him possesive out of paranoia, the intense fear of losing everything as he had before. It was still no excuse, and he knew that. Selfish? He knew that too. He had always been a clingy, greedy bastard, despite how independant he made himself out to be.

It was a long time before he replied, what with all the stressful thoughts bubbling about his head. "She's a baby, Tallerz, how she make ya feel safe when she dosen't even know what 'safe' means?" he asked, voice more exhausted and hurt rather than angry or annoyed.

The stuttering was making him inwardly grit his teeth out of contempt. To him, it sounded fake, like she was mocking him.

Still, he forced himself to keep a neutral mien.

"I'm... I'm glad she's making friends, though..." he finally mumbled. He meant those words, too. Peony had always been a bit bashful. Granted, not as shy as he other father, but a little shy all the same. He loved the fact that his daughter was making her own friends...

Just not with Talla.


Silence. Talla shifted on the

Silence. Talla shifted on the spot nervously, she did not trust him enough and would go no closer.
What he was thinking was unkown to Talla, she merely saw the way he stiffened, the head shake. What it meant? Not a clue, but she assumed he was very agitated. That didn't help her own lack of security around him one bit.

Butterfly gliding about, settling and being an overall comfort, Talla muttered, "Thank you, Atvana" for she believed in the entity as much as she believed in the Twin Gods.

Talla looked at him after words finally spilt from his maw, and wanted to point out many a thing. She could list them in her head. Firstly, she would know what safety was. Peony was old enough to understand the difference between being hurt and feeling safe. Also, what did it matter if she did or did not know what it meant? Talla had felt that Peony would not hurt her, that didn't require Peony knowing what safe was.

She looked down at the grass, individual blades that had many a time been trodden upon. This doe was not fake, but he was not to know that.

Friends, yes! Positive words! Still... the manner in which he said them made Talla sigh to herself. It was as if he hated the fact she'd made friends with Peony. "Y-yes. S-she des-deserves to h-have many friends, fr-friend that care f-for her" talking about the kindness Peony showed her, Talla felt slightly braver.

Talla could not understand why he was jealous. She tried, but all the doe could come up with as how much more they loved Jergens. He wouldn't be jealous over that.

It's hard for me to make up excuses since I remember all the wrong things/less important things so it makes me look like I have a good memory. MY BRAIN FUNCTIONS IN A STRANGE WAY.


Yeyes <3!
Roleplay posts I find easier than comments. I find replying easier than making the first comment.
Like, every time I try to comment on art I end up listing that I love everything, but then it sounds fake. D|

xDDDD Your brain is funny. I like it ^^; I can't make up excuses, because they'll never believe that I just have a terrible memory or I was unsure of what to say. They'll just think I'm so lazy that they were not worth the effort - My mind functions in a way that makes me worry about everything! 8c

"Little one, perhaps we may... see each other once more? I find that I would very much miss you..."

((In case you were wondering who in the heck that frosted stag was xD Oh yessss rp in unmomento x3))

Edit: ((Hereeee you are~))

Of course the little doe got it all mixed up. At this point, Jergens wasn't really angry so much so that he was mildly annoyed by her. Shy deer (and people) had always had a way with pissing him off a bit. Ironic considering the personality traits of his own significant other, but that was more of a fluke than anything else. He tilted his head at the small doe's mutterings, wondering who in the Hell 'Atvana' was, but decided not to venture further with any questions about who or what she was talking about.

Yes, friends. He was honestly glad that his daughter was actually befriending others on her own. He really was. He just felt so... unnaturally jealous over it all.

"Yeah... That's really what I just said..." he mumbled in reply to her ramblings, cocking an eyebrow, whether out of annoyance or indifference was hard to say.

((Lawl... brainded xD))

"Sir, I would be delighted to

"Sir, I would be delighted to meet you again. I enjoyed your company very much...you've helped me, even if you do not realise it."
{ GINGEEYY! I was wondering who it was <3!
Thank you! He is so sweet <3
Their first meeting, she was spooked halfway through xD hence the head tossing in every direction. The second time she calmed down. :3
Hurr, yes. <3 }
If Talla had been looking upon herself, she would have realised that she appeared slightly insane, speaking to a butterfly as if they were friends. Her hooves shifted on the earth, the soil beneath her hooves was comforting. It reminded her she could run, that there was something solid for her to cling to.

Confusion, it was a terrible thing for a deer, especially one like Talla. For the life of her, she could not understand Jergens. Talla closed her eyes for a moment, but her ears were fixed on the red stag. In this moment, she remembered things that comforted her and so upon reopening her eyes, there was less fear. "I w-was just..." Talla began, however the sentence ended there, for she had no idea what words should come next. "I am j-just gl-glad..." Yes, that's what she had meant to say, but for some reason it had not properly formed in her mind. It was definitely awkward speaking with him when Jergens appeared to dislike her so much, especially because she felt as if every time she spoke he wished for her stuttering to stop - and she did too! That was nigh impossible with the lack of trust for this stag.

I need to make the other person type first since I'm really bad at roleplay, if I do it then they'd probably be there all day. It's just those random rp's that suddenly pop up that I fail at replying to XD
Yeah, it's like, you don't want to just write a few words since it looks quite sloppy but if you write alot, and list the stuff you like about it then it does look fake. IT'S ALOT HARDER TO COMMENT THAN PEOPLE THINK.

Noooo my brain fails D:

Hell, I can really move all that much, so why don't ya take off? I can't chase ya." he offered, wondering whether or not she would take the bait.

"I'm sorry that I'm a jerk, okay?" he added, nodding a bit to strengthen his point. "Really."

MATHS IS THE ULTIMATE DESTRUSTION FOR MY BRAIN. Seriously I have exams coming and I need to remember things I learned about 3 years ago plus the recent things we learned, however my brain disagrees and wants to remember other things >8(

Brain doesn't like hard things.

Brain says no to maths and makes Star forget it.



{ <333! He's sweet.}
He was annoyed, and all it did was stress her, make the doe paw the grass in agitation. Get outta here? He wanted her to leave? Was she really that annoying...? Another thought crossed Talla's mind, one that made her reluctant to leave. He was hurt... but what if she left and he was injured further? Perhaps Jergen's could see the worry in her eyes because it was plain to see. Her worries increased. What of Rosine? Talla could not abandon someone Rosine adored so. The confusion was definitely all over her face.

Then again... what could she do by staying? Talla would merely flee as soon as something came by as a natural reaction, and Talla knew that she could never find the courage to even begin defending someone she did not trust.

A nod of the head, movement of confirmation of something. She lowered her head and blinked at him.
Then Talla had sprung away and was galloping at tremendous speed through the undergrowth, ripping up loose soil.

{ Sorry for the late reply D| Never even worth the wait }
