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.

"Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me."

He got used to it after a while. It was hilarious when he got dressed as Talla, and Talla and Peony were twins |D
Angst, you say? Well, he is the equivalent of a teenager xD
And Talla be fighting invisible enemies.

Okay, I've run out of awesome deer, but you're still amazing >8c ♥

Also, I stole the third page 8D
"The cruelest prison is one we make for ourselves out of fear and regret."


Not really, but I imagined it and had a giggle fit. Harry Potter reference ftw.
She was dancing, but having Vangelo kept distracting her.

YOU THIEF ;;! How could you do that...?


"In all honesty, there was a moment where I did not recognise you, for you have become so beautiful and grown so much!" the little doe nuzzled the lavender one, embarrassed for her lack of recognition, yet meaning the words spoken. "I'm merely glad that you're well and that we have met again." gently, teeth nibbled at fur of lavender and upon ceasing, she smiled up happily.

{ S'fine <333. ilu :3 Very glad to have seen her again! }

"It is not that I don't like

"It is not that I don't like you or want to harm you, but I wasn't in a good mood yesterday." The gray doe stopped as she looks to the small doe in front of her. "I may have been rude, I apologize, but acting scared of me like I did something bad against you, while I was only trying to have a friend's support is as rude as being chased." She continues her path to find a spot to rest - far away from the small doe.

Talla was the first deer Dajhi ever tried to chase, though she gave up fast. She felt bad for scaring a small being like that xD
Bad mood is bad

"Talla?" the young doe's ears

"Talla?" the young doe's ears sadly flopped to the sides of her head. "Can I ask you something?" she asked shyly, easing herself down next to the doe, cuddling next to her to give her warmth. Her curly fur ruffled a bit in a sudden cold breeze.
"I can't find my parents..." she mumbled sadly, shivering as flakes of snow started to coat her back. "Have ya.... you seen them?"

The snow fall was beautiful,

The snow fall was beautiful, making the cold worth it. Still, it's always better to share warmth with a friend. "Questions are always welcome, dear Peony" Talla nuzzled into Peony, listening attentively and deciding with ease to tell Peony what she knew. "Rosine, I have not seen in a while, however I did see Jergens" Her eyes closed, laying her head on the curly furred doe and brushing off the flakes gently. "He was injured, and I think I saw him cower from me, but I'm not sure. He seemed... different...not right, but I don't know what is going on. I think he will be okay, I honestly do, I just don't know when he will be." she is not sure of what to do, not sure at all. Talla nuzzles Peony's back, hoping that she hadn't hurt the lavender doe by those words, but knowing that the question had to be answered truthfully as a friend would answer.

{ I'm not sure myself if I saw Jergens/Friend cower from Talla when it happened or whether it was a hotkey fail, it may have been a me fail, but I saw it. O_O
Anyway, Peooooooooo! 8D }

Annnddd another track goes here.

She rubbed against her just

She rubbed against her just as equally, eager for the physical contact. "I-Injured?" she stammered, floppy lavender ears pressing to the back of her skull. "What d'yew mean different? And Mom can't just go away!" she sighed shakily.
"I... I'm just getting this awful feeling..." she shivered again, nervously brushing off the flakes from Talla's back as well to give herself something to do. "It's like... like Dad's avoiding me. Not Mom, I know he's somewhere else. But Dad..." she slowly shook her head back and forth. "I just don't understand..."
Another breathy sigh, and she turned back to the doe with a little melancholic grin, almost a reflection of her father's. A few petals from her 'antlers' flew off and fell onto the other doe's head.
"I'm sorry to have vented at ya... you." she mumbled. "How have you been?"

((He did |D And anywho, Peo has to go now since I haveta go to bed T____T Byeeees~))


8D YAAAAAA <3 danks

Edit;; Ninja
Talla groomed the distressed doe, murmuring comfort. "Different, by that I mean he didn't... feel like himself, not properly. I'm not sure Peony" for Talla was not certain why Jergens had cowered, how he got injured or why she felt something else was wrong with him. Talla forced herself to stay calm, kept talking "Hush, put faith in your parents...I do not understand either, but we don't always need to understand. I think you should just trust them, the two of them love you as much as they love one another, if not more." The blue pelted doe blinked up at Peony through the gaps in her mask, not a notch was to be found on this mask.
A brief smile was displayed for the petal that landed softly upon her head, "Worry not, Peo. You can talk to me whenever you want, just be yourself." it sounded sappy and silly perhaps, but Talla believed it and nothing would change her mind about that. "Me...I've been well, I suppose." That was not the complete truth, but sitting there with Peony, Talla decided that it was enough that the younger doe had to put up with so much hurt. Talla's own fears were petty in comparison and this wasn't about her.

{ XD SO I DID NOT FAIL, AND TALLA IS NOT DREAMING. Slow reply was slow because I am lazy, and got busy! }

The small doe slowly walked

The small doe slowly walked forward, folding her wings, her sharp battle horns disappearing, intending to sit with Peony, scratches now littering her ruffled fur. She wanted to see if the doe was alright. She had fought with Illrose before, and knew what she was like. She used to be friends with her. Bitterness welled up in her...of all the memories. She stopped in her tracks, looking a bit alarmed when Talla ran away.

"I...I'm sorry...d-do you want me to leave?" The small doe stammered uncertainly, backing away a few steps, tilting her head slightly.

The younger doe simply sighed

The younger doe simply sighed in reply, the edges of her petals browning. "Yes... I know... This is the time of my life where I need to learn to survive on my own." she mumbled. "I understand... I just wish I knew what was the matter..."
"Thank yew... you." she mumbled, covering up the little pieces of accent she had picked up from her father to speak properly. "It's always nice to have a friend to talk to." she added, really uncaring on whether or not she was sinking into even cheesier levels. Didn't matter now.
So she was doing well? That was good.... "I'm glad..." she mumbled, curling around to nuzzle Talla's neck, curling next to her smaller body.
"Thanks... fer for being my friend... I need one."

((Yess~ Aha... and Peo has to go again... bedtimmmmeee~ <3))

"The cruelest prison is one we make for ourselves out of fear and regret."

Celeste; Her masked face

Her masked face partially hid the terrified look in Talla's eyes. She had awoken to find Peony being attacked by none other than Illrose and the sure result of this was a panicked Talla. She had partially run away to allow others that may be closer to Peony to be near her, and also because the roe deer was too terrified to stay.
All four of her hooves were touching the ground, however that could easily change. Ears tilting backwards. "N-n-n...n." The doe's ears were fixated on the grey doe, as was her whole attention. Having decided words would do her no good, Talla took a few steps back and watched on, ears ever attentive.

Talla nodded slightly, understanding in her own way what Peony was feeling, "Perhaps...but don't be afraid to ask for help, for it is something that everyone needs, despite their claims." her voice was gentle, gentle as the pond's waters as they lapped at the surface, wishing for nothing to disturb the calm."Don't we all wish to know what is going on?" A nuzzle was given to Peony's curly lavender fur.
A shake of the head, "No need for thanks. Such a good friend as you deserves this and more" and it was the truth. Gentle, kind, beautiful, strong - just a few words that Talla associated with Peony. Oh, and miracle. A perfect mixture of both the blue rose and the red dog. Her blue neck stretched appropriately to allow Talla to nuzzle Peony back, nibbling at her lilac fur in attempts of comfort."And I am glad to be your friend, no matter what happens"

{D'aw <3. Poor darling. All very interesting and trying on everyone this situation is |D }

One of the doe's ears flicked

One of the doe's ears flicked backward, checking for any sounds, maybe of hooves rushing toward her, ever alert. The other stayed on the other doe. She placed of hoof behind the other, walking backward and nearly tripping herself. "I-It's okay...Illrose used to be my friend...until a few days ago. She is now my enemy, after she c-chased my friends." She still sounded uncertain.

Talla stared warily at the doe for a moment, the rain muddling everything. Despite its tendencies to muddle up scents, sounds and sight, she quite enjoyed sitting in the rain. It made her think of Vilinus, her dear, dear friend. The Prince of Hearts was as good as a sibling to her. Rain made her smile, to hope he was enjoying it to, hope that it was washing him clean."N-no. I'm fi-fine." the roe deer replied in total honesty, though with an edge of fear.
