Player Notes for Phaios:
Behavior*Maternal instinct in overdrive following the loss of one of 'her' younglings; likely to protect most fawns, but those she knows are guarded with an especially intense ferocity. Potentially severely aggressive, depending on the situation. Tolerance for others varies. - Weather*None.
Player Notes for Endriaga:
Behavior*Endri tends to be a bit of a hyperactive pest. If she is bothering you as a player, please airsit and I will know to reign her in. (If you are unable to airsit, shake your head and sit down for a minute and I'll get the point, too!)

Phaios' Daily Activity - 5/29/13


After many months of struggling and a rapid downward spiral over recent weeks, succumbed to her inner demons and left the Forest in the only way she knew how.
The doe left behind few physical reminders - a feather and an earring hidden away beneath the roots of a tree (later found by little Pica and Morioch), and a roughly carved, half-finished mask (which Isobel took and replaced with a necklace bearing one of her own teeth).
She was blessed to have more visitors than she could have imagined she would, many of whom left gifts - a touch of paint; desperately spilled blood; wreaths, baskets, and scatterings of flowers; a visit from the gods themselves as they painted the skies and brought new life; countless tears.

As the day drew to its close, the pair of bodies atop the hill faded from view and left behind only a matching set of dispersing wisps of smoke, the mourners' gifts*, and six white candles* scattered on the ground beneath where Endriaga's tines had been.

It's the end, for now, but death is the road to awe and it brings all weary travelers together again in due time, when their journeys have ended. There's a savannah calling somewhere.




[Gracious, I didn't expect so many sad faces or touching posts. There has been such an outpouring of posts and journal updates it's been hard to catch them all, and though I haven't made comments on most of them, please know I've read and teared up over every one I've found. The Forest continues to astound me, day by day.
The 'road to awe' isn't quite finished, but it's legible. I'll continue to work on it as I have time.
It's been fun, y'all. I'll still be around the Forest with my other deer, and maybe a new one(!). You lot know where to find me. I might be out for a couple days, but the Forest is home, and to home I always return.
And thank you for the well-wishes regarding my exam ♥ I've passed the class, and only two more exams stand between me and Registered Veterinary Technician status! The Forest has kept me going through the past few years, and I literally could not have gotten here without you.
Love you, guys. Thank you so much.]

Endriaga's Daily Activity - 5/28/13


After the craziness involving Thane, and then Moro's harsh words, sensed an eerie calm from the other side of the bond. Endri had meant to seek out a few particular others today anyhow, but the sudden change sent her scrambling immediately.
Stalked Morioch for some time, debating within herself. Torn between making things worse and the realization that the consequences of her inaction would be even more terrible than any rending in ties. Sucked it up and approached the buck, only sitting near at first, and then working up the nerve to try to communicate with him. Rapidly grew frustrated that he couldn't understand what she wanted, cursed her lack of voice incessantly. In the end, was chased away by Thane. Went into hysterics and refused to leave the area for a while until she accepted that as long as she was even remotely near, Thane wouldn't leave Moro and she had no chance. Moro threw a flower at her. Confused, but hoped it was a good thing.
Retreated and moped beside a random tree for a good while, but a second chance never came. Lost track of Moro, and when she went to try to find him again he was just gone.
Resigning herself to her fate, joined Phaios atop the red hill. Tried to talk the brown doe down from the ledge, but failed in the end.
Fell asleep beside Phai, never to wake.

I'm not sure if we've ever

I'm not sure if we've ever formally talked.. but I thank you for your company all this time. The little shika smiled, looking up at the other doe. It seems you and I share an affinity for a grave, too.. I am thankful there is someone else watching over them while I am away.

(just thought I"d have her finally say something..I'm not sure if they've ever spoken ^^ )
Phaios's picture

"Ah, Little Mother," the doe

"Ah, Little Mother," the doe smiles warmly as she realizes who it is who's come to speak to her. "It's my pleasure; you are wonderful company." Her gaze whisks in the direction of the ruins at the smaller deer's next sentence. "Yes... It brings back memories. And they are so often forgotten."

[♥! I don't believe they have.]
Kaoori's picture

They are often forgotten..

They are often forgotten.. but I promised this one, I'd never forget her.. I am glad you watch over her while you sit here. You may not be near her, but I know you would not let harm come to her.

A quiet hum reverberates

A quiet hum reverberates briefly in her throat. "No," she agrees softly. "Memories are far too precious."

May I ask, what is wrong with Phaios? Used to be friendly with me, but not anymore... And what is the deal with that deer that has a frown as a pictogram? That deer is always threatening me, and shunning me... I'm pretty sick and tired of being treated this way Phaios....


--Skylar--

-track- c:

-track- c: <3

Also, Aisu, the stag with the frown pictogram is Gustiro.

He is only protecting his 'claimed' deer, aka, Phaios and the mini with them [ my rather skittish stag Chess ]. Chess got nervous when Sky cast another pelt on him, and because he is a mini deer, I can't sneeze it off. I had to travel to the Twin Gods to replace the pelt, and Gustiro ovbiously thought Chess was running away from Skylar because he was scared. That is why he got defensive and started protecting Chess. It's just his nature to do that. Don't take it personally or to heart. If you have any more questions, you can look at his biography and list of claimed deer. c: It will help.

-ahem- Sorry for intruding, but I felt it was my fault and that I should explain the situation.
Phaios's picture

Skylar was rearing at the

Skylar was rearing at the frown-face deer (Gustiro) and getting him worked up, and Phaios was requesting that Skylar stop, as Gustiro is a friend of hers and she has been watching over him. She wasn't trying to hurt Skylar. Gustiro is protective of Phaios, and often shoos away deer he doesn't know. Phai has been asking him to stop, as well, and as you've seen, Gustiro has allowed Skylar to sit close on several occasions. Phai has been playing with Skylar all day today and letting him sit near.
Gustiro was also asking that Skylar not cast another pelt on the mini deer, because it is very difficult for a mini deer to get its original pelt back. Mini deer cannot sneeze pelts off.

Maybe sometime in the further you can teach me the body language of the deer... The meaning behind it... You know. Lol

There are some general actions that are pretty universal, though.

And why is Phaios sad and baffled??

Because the little blue deer - Kaoori - ran off.
Sorry for the randomness right now - we're casting on a deer. I don't think you can see her. The game is glitching right now.

I can see her, it isn't glitching for me at all... Weird..
And no problem Phaios, I love randomness. XD

Trackin'. Hiya! Somethings

Trackin'.
Hiya! Somethings wrong with TEF. I look on the map, your picto is on there, I log on to TEF, it works fine, but I can't find your picto. What part of the country do you live in? It might be distance related. (And yes, I checked the map while I was connected, and you were still on)

Lolz, Skylar, I'm pretty sure you were the one who gave me my pelt. I was the doe you were talking about above. I couldn't see Phai or Pegasicorn yet, and you were right by me. So, yeah, thank ya!

And I hope TEF connects like it did during the snow thingy, Phai. I was working, with the exception that I was a giant bunny. XD
Phaios's picture

Humh. I haven't logged in

Humh. I haven't logged in since last night (the 16th) (and I'm pretty sure I saw you run by a couple times then), so I can't imagine why Phai's picto would still be on the map. The map's not usually THAT out of date... Although it is notorious for going an hour or two without refreshing itself, at times.
I live in the central US, but that shouldn't affect anything.

That giant bunny was awesome x3 Too bad you couldn't see it, lmao.
Lynetta's picture

Yeah, I was the 16. I forgot

Yeah, I was the 16. I forgot to say that. And maybe TEF had that glitch were a couple deer show up with your own pictogram, and you can't tell which deer it is. I HATE that glitch!
Gustiro's picture

There was a new kind rage in

There was a new kind rage in the bull's eyes. Their normally dull appearance was filled with a light. Emotion and intelligence that they usually lacked.
"Is Stupid doe!"
Never before has the bull shown any real anger towards the brown doe until now. Never had he raised his voice at her. Now he raged, nearly spat his words at her.
"Next time let eaten by predator!"
His large bulk paced before her unable to stand still. Occasionally a random muscle would quiver.
"Is all stupid! All get eaten! Is no know better? All run other way! No together! Let fawns play with teeth! Is stupid!"
Suddenly he stopped, standing before her.
"And can not help fight. Has to keep stupid deer together. Is no good! Keep gettin’ close and close! Like want eatin’!"
His dark eyes bore into her but they were quickly loosing their heat. Soon the light in his eyes went out and he merely looked exhausted.
"Must use stupid words? Must use words understand?"
He huffed.
"Stupid need words."
Phaios's picture

The doe listens in silence,

The doe listens in silence, her demeanour cool aside from her ears, which lay half-back. Calm, sad eyes meet the raging bull's without hesitation. She waits patiently until the red bull has finished shouting, and replies with a tone both quiet and firm; she intends to make him be quiet and pay attention if he wants to hear anything. "Did you not see the fawn run after him? I went to fetch the little one away from the creature. The beast is wounded now, and was not lunging. You were fighting to guard a fawn not so long ago. Do not shout at me for doing the same." She snuffs softly. "At least I'm not shaking my antlers at teeth while I'm already wounded. Stop lecturing and go and rest."
Gustiro's picture

The red bull grunted at her.

The red bull grunted at her.
"Is not shout for protect fawn."
He stamped a single hoof.
"Is shout for all act stupid!"
A heavy sigh escaped him and he shook his tired head. The flare up again quickly dying down.
"Is what for," he murmured, an annoyed tone in his voice. Then repeating her, "to Shake antlers. To watch family."
He huffed and without another word he turned away and moved from her.
Phaios's picture

Phai's head jerks just

Phai's head jerks just slightly. Family. Now there was a word she hadn't heard applied to herself in a while. "Not when you're hurt. Let someone else do it," she insists softly. "I only got as close as necessary to stand guard. That's what I'm for." The doe watches him turn away and lies to rest beside a tree, a sigh of her own ruffling the tall grasses around her. She'd keep an eye on the bull from afar, for now.

I... Wesker, he- he's not usually like that.. it's just.. the devout and the twin gods- we have a history with them.. it's not a good one. I'm sorry, I hope you'll forgive him.
The little doe looked up at her friend, ears flattened.
Phaios's picture

Phai blinks with surprise.

Phai blinks with surprise. "Oh, no, no - I'm the one who missed. I've terrible aim," she admits sheepishly. The brown doe glances off towards the distant statues. "I have never been fond of ethereal twins, myself, but for entirely different reasons, I'm sure." Her amber eyes track back to the tiny deer in front of her, curious.

She paused, trying to find the right words. There really were none. But she could summarize most of it in a sentence. Maybe one day.. she'd tell the rest.
Suffice to say.. well...he and I have different beliefs than the twins.. She smiled sheepishly.

I am surprisingly okay with sitting still and doing nothing tonight, haha. My computer keeps locking up on me, hence Phai's very awkward greeting earlier.
It's getting better, but every now and then it decides to be a butthead >/

Have to admit we both smiled when Eraline magically appeared snuggled up next to Phai, though.

A single ear turns askew to catch the little fawn's words and a smile flickers across the doe's lips as her gaze follows shortly thereafter. "Warmth shared is always better. Even the damp can't change that." Of course, warm fawn fuzzies helped, too. "You are good company, little one. I'm glad to see you."
