    Pack Meeting Begins

    * Atraya gave a nod of appreciation to Shukie’s assessment of who lingered now. As the others started to appear, she would give a knowing nod to Shukie before nuzzling her lightly across her crown. It had been silent for the most part the past several weeks and she felt in her bones that soon something once more would stirr. But what? For now that was left to the chance and meeting of the world’s devices, things not in their control entirely, to do so for now she would prepare herself. “Aye, yes. Please bring it. I’ve spoken with Ayaka and she was willing to also stay behind to offer lead to those who where behind. For now…. Meeting time.” she paused and heard a chuff, hearing it belonging to her daughter Fianna. She smiled and chuffed back to her softly. It was there she gave her a few moments to catch up when she turned on lithe paws and would’ve done so very diligently but there was a stone in her way and unnaturally tripped upon it. She splayed her paws out effectively catching herself before giving a grin as if all was well, now moving to the ruins. Once she reached the ruins themselves she stopped at the lower platform of a large boulder that sunk itself into a staircase. A convenient way for her to get up and onto the boulder. Climb she did and when she reached it’s edge she would let loose a howl. A call for a gathering. The walls of the ruins would act like an amplifier and cast her tones to the winds.
    * Emunah flinched slightly as a howl permeated the air. Her heart began to drum against her ribs and she pressed herself further into the bark of the tree. Her timid nature held her legs in a death grip.
    * Shukie was too slow by just a split second to give a shoulder to Atraya but quickly lowered her muzzle and snatched up the key to bring it along. But first things first she chuft a greeting to Kwa`ani and Calder bidding them both to follow at Atraya’s howl, noting the strange thing in the brute’s muzzle. Kwa`ani didn’t seem weirded out by it so she paid it no mind at this point but followed the alpha fae and would take her place to the right of Atraya, watching for others to arrive as they would. She set the key down and again placed a paw over it for now.
    * Fianna would be swift of paw to catch up to Atraya as she seemes intent on leaving the lake behind. She’d give a grin followed by a respectful nod to Shukie before running her muzzle omg Atraya’s pelt softly in a fond greeting. “Uh oh oo a shhiirl” She mouthed around the creature to her mother, wondering if the fae had eaten lately. It wasn’t much but.. Was that Kwa`ani ‘s scent she caught just then? Slowing she perked to look for her sister, tail swaying gently in anticipation before that… Other scent.. Reached her. Hmm, maybe she should just keep moving. Walking beside Atraya she’d halt whenever herlther found a good place to settle, and would then put the squirrel at her paws.
    <Faolan> Fall was in the air, was such a funny thing to say. Was it now? Then best let it fall the rest of the way or wait ’til the snows came to cushion its fall. Perhaps it was a bird that sprinkled the brisk spices of autumn upon the leaves to turn them the burnt auburn and sienne red colors he had enjoyed in his intervening absence? And just where was he, mister?! He could hear that nagging  voice in his head. Not of his father nor of his mother…probably of Kwa`ani. She was more the bossy one, but, skipping the rest of the monologue, it was the voice of his own expectation nagging him as he finally made his way back into the confines of the northern territory…it still sounded like Kwa`ani.
    * Rune and Kova’s path would intercept with that of the Alpha’s and a few other wolves it would seem. She chuffs in greeting to Atraya, Shukie, and Fianna and follows behind them, towards the ruins. While she was not so unsure of them as her first night, when she stumbled upon them in the dark in strange lands, the unnatural structures automatically placed Rune in a state of heightened caution and awareness. Atraya, who moved well despite the loss of one of her senses, expertly takes her place, perched atop a boulder. Rune seats herself towards the back of collecting crowd. Her copper and amber eyes would then fall upon Kwa’ani, who Rune was glad to see, and then a stranger, a large and dark brute. If the new wolf had been unaccompanied, she would have risen to her paws but Kwa looked unbothered. Rune would offer a chuff in greeting to the pair and every so often would cast a glance towards new wolf.
    * Kwa`ani picked up her pace a bit giving Calder a slight nudge as she moved further int othe front unless he paces beside her. She had many a question for him but as his muzzle was full she held them for now. WHen they reached the gathering she stopped well short of the place where Atraya and Shukie had taken up residence, offering ou a chuff in greetings in a general nature.
    * Ayaka had spotted Atraya heading for the ruins long before she’d reached the lake and as such rather than going to meet them she seated herself nearby to await their approach once they had settled nearby she’d follow and nuzzle Shukie and Kova fondly. “Hello sisters mine” She offered softly before dipping her head to Rune. “Hello Rune. Welcome back.” She swayed her tail once then looked to the others# her gaze lingering a moment on Calder, before she settled on the opposite side of Atraya from Shukie. Her gaze searched for the form of Rook, but so far she had not seen him for some time.
    * Emunah * Emunah cautiously eased away from her tree and slinked into the open. ‘It’s been so long since I’ve seen another wolf…’ she thought as she turned in the direction of where the strongest scents lay.
    <Calder> The howls of the gathered would reach his ears and it was there he would give a polite nod to Kwa`ani. He would perhaps suggest with his eyes that he’d take a very far seat in the back. In the shadows if possible. He gave another nod to Kwa`ani before retreating to said spot. He wasn’t going to interrupt a meeting.
    * Atraya me when the others gathered she would wait for Shukie to confirm the rest had made it before she began. “Thank you all who’ve attended tonight’s meeting. I had a few announcements I wanted to bring forth to the pack as well as announce my desires to return back to our territory and home.” she eased her paws beneath her in thought before she continued. “After Ayaka’s report from the group and from the others who’ve returned, the pack’s territory seems well in order for us to return home. The darkened earth has already begun to spring life once more and we should bring life back to it too. I’m hoping we can depart soon. If not tonight then perhaps tomorrow on the morning. Those who are not with us will be able to follow as they did to get here.” she waited and allowed the others »»
    <Atraya> »» to digest her plan before she would look out once more. “Are there any questions? Concerns?”
    * Kova would smile and respond in kind to her sister, Ayaka, and nuzzle her warmly “Hello sister” her tones light and welcoming. She too would be aware of Calder among the gathered and wondered what he was up to now? But, her eyes looked out now to her alpha as she spoke.
    * Fianna settled with the group, but didn’t approach Calder and Kwa`ani, eying them both curiously however as she settled near the front,closer to Atraya, her ears perked as her mother began a meeting. Her heart was glad to hear of the return, her mother having spoken of it last night. What would it look like now? The same? Healed? She had changed much since their journey took them from the old land and she figured the
    * Fianna land had likely changed as well. She almost hoped it had.. For that would feel appropriate somehow. She would remain silent, having no concerns to voice for the time being.
    * Rune “Thank you, Ayaka. I am glad to be back.” She responds, dipping her head. Not wanting to distract from the meeting, she does not offer a nuzzle. Staying near to Kova and Ayaka, Rune positions herself to where Calder’s silhouette would be in her periphery. When Atraya would speak Rune turns her attention to her, and her tail wags slightly on the ground upon hearing the news. The white and russet fae had no questions about t
    * Rune heir return. She was debatably the wolf to have seen it most recently and it seemed to her that the only thing wrong with the territory was that the pack was not there.
    * Emunah Begins to ease out of her cautious stance. ‘Maybe… maybe they’ll let me join…?’ she thought longingly.
    * Ayaka held silent as well, listening to her alphas question but having no comment for the time being. She was ready and willing to return back to the territory she knew like the hairs on her paw. As she sat nearby she scanned the group of wolves, glad to see the several that had made it to the meeting. Rune in particular was a sight for sore eyes.. She hadn’t thought to see their healer again. Which caused her to
    * Ayaka wonder, where was Kajika? She hoped the brute was well, she’d not spoken to him for some time.
    * Shukie would nuzzle her sister’s both, her tail swaying excitedly for a brief moment before settling to the listen to the alpha. For the moment, she remained quiet after reporting all who were there to the alpha. In a hushed whisper, “Calder arrived with Kwa`ani tho he’s settled in the far back, he carries something with him but i can’t see it from this distance to describe it.” at that
    * Shukie she drifted into silence again while waiting on the pack members and others to make any comments.
    * Kwa`ani noticed Calder veering off and didn’t press him to come further sensing perhaps his reluctance. She had yet to catch scent of the wandering fae in the nearby areas, tho likely the fae wasn’t close enough just yet. She would nuzzle her sister gently as she parked her backside beside her, Calder’s scent no doubt upon her fur but not so much so as to have been scent rubbed.
    * Kova ‘s paws would shift beneath her in quiet thought and contemplation but gave a gentle nod of her head to her alpha’s words. She was also eager to return home. Perhaps the animals that returned to their hunting grounds weren’t so hard headed then those here! Yessshhh.
    * Emunah sniffed the air, catching the scent of dying autumn leaves and the mixed scents of the pack gathering. Feeling a spark or hope, she picked up the pace slightly, her excitement overpowering her fear.
    <Calder> Had remained in the back. Amber eyes leered from the darkness like two pillars of embers lit against a black drape pulled from the night sky. The trinket still in maw as he dare not allow it to touch the ground. Not yet, anyway. He kept vigilance and observations to himself.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K Ah, there we go. Little did he know that his designation had been missing. Much like an npc who slipped in through the mass of common folk, he hoped to make his own entrance as inconspicuous. Of course, that is not how the real world works, and regardless of the tag above his head he would make what subtle entrance he could into the confines of the ruins. How he had ruminated on these far different, yet similar ruins to those he had gathered in…
    * Atraya would await any and all questions to be asked so she would answer. When none arised she gave a simple nod to Shukie’s words. She let her mind wander over her words before she continued to address her pack. “I will lead the rest back alongside Shukie. Ayaka will remain for half a day to a day at the longest to ensure anyone who has not been awake now, can easily follow back. I wish all who are here now to return back to our territory with us.” an ear turned to the east for a brief moment then ahead. “Next I would like to invite any who have questions, comments, or concerns to step forward before we continue. ” she would pick apart who was present and who wasn’t.
    * Emunah paused as she finally caught site of the pack, gathered at the ruins of an ancient stone structure. Her joy at finally finding the pack faltered as she realized how many wolves were there.
    <Atraya> Upon Emunah’s observations she would find the wolves where gathered in a common area. Perhaps something was going on? Clearly conversations where going on among the leader and the rest.
    * Fianna was having a hard time concentrating, and though she tried not to glance over her shoulder at the brute with the smoldering eyes, she did so once or twice, and the scent on Kwa`ani ‘s pelt did her no favors either. She even edged away just a fraction, though she seemed as though the shift was only to scratch at a wayward itch. Turning her own light amber hues back toward Atraya. When her brother tried to slip in
    * Fianna oh so quietly, she’d pin him with her gaze and narrow her eyes a moment, before seeming to shrug and glanced away back to listen to Atraya. At the last question she would rise and chuff lightly to get her mother’s attention. “I’ve been wondering, Alphess, if we should be concerned at all about retribution from our killing the Mykeer.. Do we want to draw the gaze of those beings toward our home?”
    <Calder> His paws would shift beneath him in thought. The question was asked of those who where present. There was much to think on, especially his actions, and what he would do now. He looked as though he was to rise but paused hearing a familiar voice. He turned to Fianna and waited.
    * Kwa`ani wondered after her brother and where he might be. she’d not likely picked up on his scent and didn’t look for him now still not used to his presense as it was. She had long since forgiven the brat for slipping off. Next time.. there’d better not be one, she thought. Wow! speak of the devil and up he slithers in. She gave a welcoming nod to Rook before giving her attention back to her sister and the alpha.
    * Emunah her ears pricked at the hushed tones of conversation reached her. Emunah gave a shake and continued closer. ‘It has been so lonely! I cannot continue to live like this!’ she huffed softly and flicked an ear. She trotted toward the ruins at a quicker gait.
    * Ayaka would nod to Atraya’s words, knowing her role now and was not bothered in the least to stay behind for any stragglers. That seemed her role of late, to seek the lost and wandering.. Her nose quiverred some as she thought she scented a stranger for a moment.. Drawing her gaze to Calder then away. It wasn’t his scent.. Nay.. She remained where she was for the time being, until such time the scent cane again, stronger, but she grew ever more alert, her silver hues watching the shadows around them.
    * Shukie ‘s ears perked to Fianna’s question, a very very valid one at that. she too had wondered about possible retribtions from Myrkeer, the prophecy of the Crone that Atraya would assume the fae’s place. Interesting question and very good one.
    * Rune ’s nose would twitch momentarily upon a new scent. Quietly rising to her haunches she looks over her shoulder at the expanse. In the darkness it would seem to her that a small silhouette would be moving towards them at a brisk jog. The fae would turn her body further towards the approaching figure, keeping an ear on the Alpha but her eyes on stranger.
    * Atraya remained seated there beside Shukie. She brushed her shoulder against her every now and then for the heights sometimes still gave her a bit of vertigo. If anything to keep her balanced. Her daughter had a sound question. A good question. There would be a knowing smile across her muzzle as she gave a nod in her direction. Oh how she’s grown. They all have. “An honorable question, Fianna.” she offered in kind as her sensitive nose tipped up, taking in the air every so often. Perhaps she might now catch wind of Emunah? However she would address her daughter’s concerns “To whatever ends this past quest has led us, I assume by now has already been written in the stars. Whatever comes after will do so whether we are here or home.” she paused if only to catch her  thoughts. “That being said and my current condition, I would rather face an enemy in a place of familiarity than not. I wish for no disadvantages as we can muster.” the honest truth and there it was.
    * Emunah had just entered the shadows of the the ruin when she began to pick out individual voices and scents. She froze. ‘This is a bad idea… There are so many here. If they decide to attack I’ll be torn to shreds!’ Emunah could not help but begin to panic.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K Egads! Had he been given the poo-poo eye from Fianna? Well…he never! But of course he did, and he didn’t actually do the southern sassy lady thing all that well. He was the collector afterall, and so he had collected while he waited for this very moment to occur. In truth, he hadn’t wandered far to wonder much. It was at this point in his never ending monologue that he caught Kwa`ani give him a warmer nod than his other sister. He’d give a wolven smile; that familial glint in the eye rather than the flashing of fangs before he turned to the question asked and answered.
    * Fianna would nod thoughtfully to Atraya’s words, for she could understand her mother wanting to be on well known earth to face the foe’s of the future. She dipped her head then voiced her answer since Atraya would not see her nodding. “I understand, and I do agree. That seems wise.” She would settle then, waiting to hear if any others had anything to ask or say.
    * Kajika was away from the Pack and the ruins as even his short travels took him to see some of the different sights of the changing seasons in this new place. He had seen only one season through with the WolfSpirits and in their own territory, it had been all of the trees changing colors and losing their leaves or pines simply turning brown in the case of the neetles on the fir trees.
    * Kajika There was only »»
    <Kajika> »» so much he could see at a time from where he would have been on the ground without climbing up any of the mountains around their valley before. Now however, he was able to see the changing scenery from the height of the mountains around them all from the lower elevations and it was a sight to see. It was so much that he almost didn’t hear the sounds of the howls that rang out
    <Kajika> earlier but he »»
    <Kajika> »» proved to be more than quick to spin back around and start to make the journey back on hurried but careful paws. «end
    * Rune watched as the figure would stop it approach, though it remained within the shadows. She assumed the creature to be a wolf; either that or a very large coyote, which if it were, would not be tolerated for long. Rune takes a few long strides towards it, tail level with her spine and ears pointed forwards. She offers a small bark to the creature, bidding it to come forwards.
    * Shukie did offer up a confirmation of the alpha’s words, “Upon grounds we know and know well we can defend far better for knowing what lies where and within.” Turning to Atraya, she whispered, ‘i believe rook has attemtped to slip in unnoticed’ The snicker was heard by Atraya and perhaps Ayaka but not beyond the threesome.
    * Emunah flinches and immediately tucks her tail as the bark rings out. Very slowly she edges toward the larger wolf, muscles tensing in case she needs to bolt.
    * Kwa`ani had given her attention to the leadership, not giving a second thought to Fianna’s shifting figuring it was in prep to speak out. She now offered up a small tidbit, “The caribou seem to be heading southward in prep of winter’s coming.” She then fell silent after casting a glance to the two brutes of illrepute
    * Atraya ‘s tail shifted around her paws as she gave a warm nod to Fianna and as mile before hearing Shukie’s words. She chuckled if only to acknowledge that her son was as wild and sneaky as his father. Perhaps more so. She gave a nod to this before she would look out over the vastness of those gathered. She would tip her nose up and scent the air again before she leaned to Shukie Kajika? Is he here? I do not smell him right off.
    * Kova ‘s ears turned in the direction of Calder’s movements but when Fianna spoke she listened intently to the question and answer. Both sound. Both reasonable. It wasn’t until Rune forfit her spot to investigate something. Nae.. someone? She would shift her paws slowly beneath her and rise as well. A new wolf among the gathered now. The tension would be felt.
    * Shukie added in quickly, “not as of yet, alpha. I do not sent Kajika upon the winds.”
    <Calder> Remained within the confines of the darkness. He liked it there. He was born to it and of it. So he remained. It wasn’t until the sudden appearance of another did he pause and now look in said direction. He would not interfer.
    * Emunah ‘s heart nearly stopped as several pairs of eyes landed on her. She could feel phantom agony of teeth tearing into her pelt, radiating from the scars marring her brown fur. She tried to speak, but her voice had left her at the sight of the much larger wolves.
    * Rune ’s eyes scan the small, young fae who seemed to be prepared to dash off. She was about to address the newcomer in hushed tones when the feeling of a few pairs of eyes would settle upon them. “Atraya, apologies for the interruption, but there is a newcomer among us.” Rune would project over her shoulder before stepping to the side to beacon the wolf forwards. As she was not a current member of the pack, she figured it wise
    * Rune to bring the wolf to the full attention of those who were.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K , being in the back, would cast his glance back to said stranger. Wolves hiding in in the underbrush wasn’t exactly new to him, but he had been gone long enough to not know whether this stranger was indeed a stranger. He was glad that the fae broke the focus from him and other things. There wasn’t much need for him to interject in this greeting or in the questions. He found
    <Faolan> great wisdom in the questions and the answers. His own thoughts…well, one wouldn’t spoil a story in the midst of it. With the introduction of apprehension and uncertainty, he was keen to square and place himself strategicaly away from the potential fray. Wild? Sure. Crazy? There were herbs for that.
    * Shukie rose at the understanding a stranger was approaching, trusting Rune despite the fae no longer being pack, still, she stepped forward a half step protectively of the alpha yet showed no outward concern for worry for the pack was assembled.
    * Atraya would listen to the words offered and shared of a newcomer. She would momentarily pause their meeting to offer a greeting to said wolf. Rising to all fours she would use Ayaka’s guide and Rune’s voice to look ‘ahead’ now. “Step forward wanderer…” she now called out to the fae, Emunah.
    * Emunah timidly crept toward what appeared to be the alphaess. Her belly fur brushed the cool stone of the ruins and her limbs trembled slightly under the weight of the pack’s gaze. ‘I’m going to die!’ Was the desparing mantra repeated over and over in her skull.
    * Kajika would be running on not-so-quiet paws in the general directions of both the ruins and the lake. The scent of numerous wolves on the wind was enough to raise his fur on his hackles with worry. When he got close enough to tell and even see where everyone was gathered, he would gradually slow his pace down to a brisk trot as he got closer, seeing Atraya, Ayaka, Shukie and several
    * Kajika others on »»
    <Kajika> »» sight and nothing other than that out of the ordinary which was enough to ease his mind considerably. Rethinking his entrance even, he started to slow down to a more quiet approach so that he hopefully wouldn’t draw too much attention to himself as he seated himself on the outskirts of the group to quietly listen with heaving sides.
    * Atraya ‘s muzzle would be pointed straight ahead of her and her gaze never left the horizon. What gaze, however? Upon closer inspection the new fae Emunah would make note that her face held significant scars. Especially where her eyes where. Charcoal nose would wiggle this way and that in the direction of the fae before she offered “Salutations and well met. I am Atraya, Alpha female of WolfSpirits. The pack you now reside within. What is your name and what brings you here?”
    * Ayaka stood by, silent but ready to lend a paw should it be necessary. She felt the same as Shukie though,for one wolf, no matter how talented they were in a fight, could take on a pack. She settled back onto her haunches, curious, and keeping an eye around them.still as she took note of Kajika ‘s entrance, and Calder’s continued presence. What was he doing here? And what did he have with him? Rook Tom had made an
    * Ayaka entrance, and she would be glad to see him.
    * Shukie took the lead at the fae’s approach, “I’m Shukie, Beta of WolfSPirits, Beside me is Atraya, Alpha fae and on the other side is Ayaka, Delta of WolfSpirits. If you come in peace you are welcome here and will be protected as needed.” she let her voice trail off awaiting the fae’s introduction `a fae wonderer, Atraya` she whispered. It would see Atraya and she would speak about the same time bring a laugh to her voice.
    * Emunah “E-Emunah is my n-name.” she stuttered out in a hoarse whisper. “Please… I was just passing through! I didn’t mean to intrude, but I was curious and…” Emunah trails off nervously, amber eyes flickering from wolf to wolf.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K If it was any consolation, he wasn’t looking directly at Emunah? He was a fair bit more interested in watching others’ reactions to the new fae. Ever the consummate collector of a story he watched and listened. He’d look to his sisters and see if Fianna would give him the stank eye once more?
    * Atraya turned her head to ‘face’ Emunah now and she gave a dip of her head slowly. “Welcome to WolfSpirits, Emunah. All are welcome to reside with us given our home and rules are respected and followed. If you agree to these terms, you are welcome to reside with us for as long as needed. We are currently in the middle of a pack meeting…” perhaps offer some consolidation to why there was a large amount of wolves in a tightly neat place.
    * Fianna was in fact staring, at Rook that is, not Emunah for she had faith that the pack chieftain and her council would handle the newcomers of the world, and while she was avoiding glancing in Calder’s direction, that meant her hues landed comfortably upon Rook. For a long moment the Stinkiness would be felt, but so was there a softening and she eventually allowed a wag, if he kept her gaze long enough.
    <Calder> He too seemed to be the quiet observer of all that happened and transpired. He would keep it that way of course.
    * Rune would watch the newcomer as it moved past her and towards Atraya. Kajika would also appear from the outskirts and if she could make eye contact with the Caretaker In Training, she would dip her head in greeting to him before turning her attention back to the introduction playing out.
    <Emunah> “Really…? You’ll let me join without questioning or hurting me…?” She inquires skeptically, but with growing hope in her voice. “Yes, please I want too join! I’ll be good and won’t get in the way, I promise!” She couldn’t stop the last from leaving her muzzle, but past experience could not be ignored.
    * Atraya would give a nod of her head to the fae. There was much to be told, story wise, in one’s tones and fur. The fae so far didn’t seem to warrent any danger nor offer it freely on the wind so she would trust her for now. She nosed Shukie lightly before turning then to address the rest of the wolves. “Is that Kajika?” she inquired once more to her Beta before turning then to Emunah. “If you request to join the pack then you are able to request such.” she paused for a brief moment. “However I ask that you please do so at the end of our meeting this evening when I offer such.” she didn’t expect a new wolf to know their ways, nor, their meeting decorum. No fault of the fae’s and she’d offer her the chance to pledge herself at the right time. “So you are welcome to seat yourself and listen until such a time.”
    * Kova had been the quiet observer as well it seems as she listened to the words shared, offered, and given. Interesting, she thought as she would tip her nose up scenting the air. The fae was now a familiar scent to her but when Rook snuck himself among the gathered wolves he’d not go unnoticed. Not from her. She smiled and offered a gentle wave of her tail in his direction. Whether he noticed or not would be entirely up to his own observations, but she inwardly hoped.
    * Emunah “Thank you.” Nods and quickly scrambles to the edge of the pack formation, still in a submissive posture. Cautiously she sinks to her belly and lays her head on her front paws while flicking her ears forward to listen.
    <Rook> Ah… a stating (sic) contest. Well, thankfully he could state with the rest of ’em. He was, some say, quite stately; perhaps the stateliest? One wonders who “some” were and how he came to be the stateliest. None-the-less, he’d stare back for a moment and let the goofiness pass. He wasn’t a pup anymore, but the wag of his tail would suggest he was happy to have not been given a prolonged stink-eye experience.
    * Shukie would nod to Atraya even as she whispered a quiet yes to the fae. She would nod to Emunah after Atraya spoke, her posture not in the least threatening but more welcoming for now as time would tell. Spotting Kajika she fixed her gaze upon him, “Kajika, please step forward.” her posture changing to that of her position, Beta. She observed the goings on in otherwise silent viewings.
    * Rune ’s eyes would not leave Emunah and based on her reactions to Atraya and Shukie’s words, it seemed as if the wolf had known some unkind times. Still, for the moment she would remain silently on her paws at the back of the crowd. Calder would be forgotten to Rune for now, he had entered with Kwa’ani after all. When Atraya says her final words and asks for Kajika one more, Rune assumes the Beta will answer her question. As munah crawls away from he central spotlight of the meeting towards the back of the pack, Rune looks back towards Atraya while keeping an ear on the timid fae.
    <Kajika> Just as Kajika was getting used to the scent of the wolves around him, some of which he hadn’t crossed before, he was called forward and without hesitating, he stepped forward, quickly jumping up just as quickly as he was to sit down. When he stood in front of Shukie and Atraya, he bowed his head slightly as he would have done at any other time. Since he wasn’t sure what to say and didn’t want to jump to conclusions, he would just leave it at that as he stood before them with his head and tail at a respectable height for their status.
    * Emunah Keeps half an eye on the surrounding area and the other on the others. She knew if she let her guard down it could be considered an opportunity to attack. Her old pack had drilled that into her mercilessly…
    * Atraya heard Shukie call Kajika forward and she would turn her head now in his direction. She smiled before offering to those gathered. “Kajika. You’ve been a long standing member of this pack for sometime now and as such your heart and dedication for those you call family is unmatched. Your passion for your craft is well known. You are knowledged to the skill of a caretaker and I would like to ask you now, do you still desire to take on this role in the pack?”
    * Kwa`ani watched interplay between her sister and brother, smiling as her tail swayed now that the pack had settled again. A wide smile showed to them both before giving her attention back to the alpha and Kajika
    <Calder> Would notice any and all eyes upon him but kept to himself.
    * Fianna would perk as Kajika was called forward her gaze would wave her brother, pass quickly over Calder and land on the caretaker in trainer. But maybe not in trainer for much longer? She shifted her paws, excited for the brute. He would serve their pack well, she knew, and it was good to have him in a role he seemed to enjoy.
    * Kova ‘s hues fell now to Kajika and Atraya. She smiled to Shukie and when the question was asked of the male caretaker in training, she swung her tail now in eagerness to his response.
    * Ayaka would watch and listen as well, keeping an eye on Emunah even as she wagged once when Kajika moved forth, listening to the words given and received. She’d remain quiet, attentive.
    * Rune ’s full attention was captured by Atraya now, her tail wagging as she remembered the time when she was in Kajika’s place. While Rune did not know the brute nor his training well she couldn’t help but feel with him, after all, he had earned it.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K wasn’t one to ignore those he could see himself. If his eyes could spot them, then he would surely pass along a glance to both Kova and Ayaka. He wondered how they had faired in the short intervening time between his arrival and…well…his arrival. Attention was givne to where it was due, and he was keen to hear the answer to his mother’s question.
    * Kajika listened with a still expression but his heart raced in his chest and he answered with the confidence that he felt came with the training he had received so far and thusly his voice carried with him more than he felt like it had when he had first been asked to step forward what felt like several moons ago. “Yes these things still hold true for me.” He nodded as he said so.
    * Shukie kept watch on Kajika and those beyond him noting the fae’s position she’d taken, spotting rook and calder lurking. For now, her gaze remained upon Kajika and his answer.
    * Kajika A glance in »»
    <Kajika> »» Shukie’s direction and Rune who he could scent somewhere in the gathering around him was enough that he looked up again with the added knowledge that they had shared almost sparkling in his eyes in what light was offered in what they had shown him and maybe even vice versa.
    * Atraya there would be a knowing smile creep across her face upon his response. She gave a nod of her head before addressing the rest of her pack “Those who stand before you now will be stewards of your great care. I would like to give you the honor of being named WolfSpirits CareTaker, Kajika. You may now introduce yourself as such to all you meet.” her paw came up from the stone and would come upon it with a stomp.
    * Kova upon the announcement of their new Caretaker she couldn’t help but feel her chest well with pride for him. He had been long standing with them now and this role would suite him well. She recalled Rune well knowledged upon the craft and with two of them in their presence, she couldn’t help but feel comforted in such a thought. When Atraya announced Kajika’s advancement she would let loose a few barking chuffs for Kajika!
    * Shukie lifted her head in a congratulatory howl as her own paws taps upon the stone’s surface in a wolfie tapdance
    * Emunah gives a faint tail wag at the joyous atmosphere.
    * Rune lifts her head in elated song, celebrating Kajika’s dedication. Her tail continues to sway behind her long after her howl ends.
    * Ayaka would offer a loud chuff bark of congratulations, her tones slipping into a howl with the rest!
    * Fianna ‘s tones would join the other’s, her shoulder bumping her sister’s as she howled her happiness for their new caretaker!
    * Shukie would step forward again and this time offer up to those not of pack that desire to pledge to thw WolfSpirits to step forward, casting a glance to the many brutes and faes lingering that were not yet pledged to see if any wished to do so, tail still swaying
    * Kajika now let himself smile as he bowed his head again stepping back and made himself comfortable among his Pack around him again, looking around to each visible member that he could see. His tail could hardly keep up with his excitement and he told himself that he was proud to get the chance to ensure the wellness of the others and he maybe even made a small promise with himself that he would have to come up with even the smallest of stories for the little injuries that he would share while he was treating an injury or ailment.
    * Rune would look to Shukie and with her chest still full of empathetic joy, would step forwards. “If I may, I request to Pledge myself once more to the WolfSpirits Pack. It is a home that I have missed and am lucky to have found again.”
    <Faolan> Rê™­K It was good to see the traditions continue. Whether the learning of rank or of the subtle but strong stamp to the stone beneath, rituals were often carried on. Age made vague the once lucid tapestry of memory but a story recalled could weave anew a lost morsel of time gone by. Such a small detail was not unnoticed, and he too would stamp his paw once for good measure if not to
    <Faolan> just congratulate Kajika in the likeness of those before him.
    * Atraya would lean in to Shukie and nudge her gently if only to get her barrings before an ear turned to the familiar tones of another. Rune. She smiled with a warm heart at her request to rejoin their pack and family. This would no doubt cause a smile to remain upon her features.
    * Shukie smiled when she watched Rune step forward, allowing time for any others to step forth as well tho not really expecting either of the brutes to do so, she had hoped Rook would but perhaps next time. Her gaze went to the new fae, Emunah briefly giving a nod to the fae if she so chose to pledge now or simply observer until such time the pack would offer up to pledges at the next
    * Shukie meeting. “It is well and good to see you returned to home, to the pack. If it is your desire to once again start the journey to become a full WolfSpirit then I welcome you as a Pledge of WolfSpirits.” she paused looking around once more, brushing her shoulder to Atraya briefly. “You were once Caretaker of the pack and your knowledge from then and gained since then is good to have
    * Shukie back. “If you are in deed sincere upon the journey, I name you Pledge of Wolfspirits.”
    * Emunah Feels a faint stirring in her chest. Her old pack would have never allowed her to see this momentous occasion.She would have been bullied from the meeting place if caught watching those “worthy” of a position being inducted. It felt strange that she should witness this now.
    <Ayaka> would shift her paws and offer a barkimg howl for Rune, glad the far had taken the step to a full return! She then quieted to look toward Emunah, curiosity in her gaze, excitement too, for someone new to pledge
    * Kajika couldn’t help but to continue to smile as he was replaced by Rune who stepped forward and listened to the two of them, both Rune and then another wolf step forward and hoped that her request would be granted. As the other wolf stepped forward, his tail swayed nonetheless as he listened to her request, the more they had, the more successful they would be with things like hunting
    * Kajika and traveling.
    * Shukie turned to the new wolf, Emunah, “Come forward, Emunah.” her tones neutral for she did not yet know this fae. Her obsidian eyes watched the fae noting her timidity, not trying to portray the big bad beta routine, instead, relaxed and confident, “You will have much to learn of our ways, Emunah. If you find you desire to make this your home you will be trained in our ways. If you
    * Shukie are willing to learn our ways and follow our rules, then we ..” she looked to Atraya and Ayaka before letting her gaze go back to Emunah, “welcome you to WolfSpirits, Pledge. You may introduce yourself as such when greeting anyone.” she waited for Atraya or Ayaka to add anything.
    * Kwa`ani gave a yip and if Rune moved past her she’d give the fae a very brief nosing if allowed in welcoming her back. It was a good night. Going home soon, new wolves and returning wolves and mostly, just glad to have her bratty brother back with them, casting a glance towards him for a few moments until the sound of the new fae’s voice cuased her to look back to the alpha and beta
    <Faolan> Rê™­K A good number of promotions and beginnings were afoot (apaw?). Not one to give the game away, he kept his current thoughts to himself and continued his somewhat quiet watch of the proceedings. There were other senses one could use to gather information of another, and he was keen to note what scents Emunah carried with her from her journeys. Did those scents speak of travel
    <Faolan> from the south, east, or west? He wasn’t quite sure he could tell from his distance from her but wasn’t quite sure he really wanted to move any closer to the uknown fae.
    * Atraya would dip her head to the new fae, Emunah. Though they’ve only just met she would be confident that time would tell what her place would ultimately be with them and with the pack. She would welcome her into their fold and hoped her path would be true. When Shukie finished naming the pledges she would allow a few more minutes to pass before she too continued. “I would like to open the floor to any who desire to offer words of thought? Concern?”
    * Rune sends a grateful chuff in response to the stamp of Atraya’s paw. She moves backwards and away from the place in front of Atraya and Shukie, returning Kwa’ani’s nosing before returning to her position in the back. “Atraya, while I traveled through the territory I can confirm that there is prey, or at least that there was much of it while I was there.”
    * Atraya ‘s ear turned in Rune’s direction. She would give a nod of her head and appreciation for her assessment that would confirm Ayaka’s findings as well. “Excellent, thank you.” her tail swung slowly behind her before stilling. She’d continue to wait.
    * Shukie tapptapped her front paws upon the stone before Atraya asked her questions. “Welcome, Pledges of WolfSpirits.” At Atraya’s question, “Do you wish me to remain here for a time to gather any that are not yet aware we are returning home? or do you have someone else in mind?” she worried for the trail back and Atraya’s safety for some places were not easily traversed even with sight.
    * Kova shook her pelt for a moment before she would look out to Atraya and Shukie. She listened intently for she herself had nothing to note nor add. At least not for now. Her hues cast a glance to Rook for a second before returning to the gathered. She looked to the new fae and was excited to see some new wolves among their fold. So many where missing..
    * Emunah Let’s lose an involuntary yip of joy at being accepted.
    <Calder> As the proceedings continued he remained ever silent. Ever vigilant. Watchful. The trinket remained upon his paws and partially in his mouth. He was not going to interrupt said meeting and kept to himself until the end of it.
    * Atraya she would look towards Shukie now and give a slow nod “I have asked this of Ayaka.” her tones light “She will help guide those who may or may not trail behind.”
    * Emunah Glances around at the assembled wolves – no… new packmates – and gives a tiny self-conscious full body shake.
    * Rune raises her voice once more. “Will we be leaving tonight or in the morning?” Rune wanted to make sure that no one present was accidentally left behind with Ayaka when the pack eventually would begin the trek home.
    * Atraya an ear turned to Rune and she would look then to Shukie. “perhaps we should rest up the rest of the evening and leave first thing on the morrow?” her head then turned to the rest gathered. “How are you all presently feeling?”
    * Kova an ear turned to Atraya as she seemingly addressed the rest of hte pack. Her nose dipped down before rising slowly “I am well enough my Alpha. I can travel at any time upon your call.” her hues then fell to the others and was curious to their responses.
    * Shukie nodded to Atraya, “Excellent. A good task for our Delta.” gazing out over the others. “For those of you who have traveled recently, has a less treterous route been found than the one we’ve currently used?” her thoughts were of Atraya without saying so directly worried for the fae’s safety on the trek. She now looked to Calder and Rook. “Do either of you know of safer routes than
    * Shukie what we took to get here?” her obsidian gaze going directly to each wolf in turn.
    * Rune was still more accustomed to traveling than she was settled. She would be prepared to leave when Atraya believed they were all ready. “I am prepared to leave whenever the pack is ready.” Looking to Shukie now, Rune recalls her path and while there were few treacherous parts the looming, plunging depths of the Fjord stuck in her mind. Since she simply followed the most recent trail, Rune figured the pack knew the path she had
    * Rune taken and, thus, there was nothing to say.
    * Emunah mutters almost to herself. “I’m exhausted. all this excitement has worn me thin…” Nervously looks around to gauge the pack.
    <Faolan> Rê™­K knew the promise and reality of snow on the passes south of them were already real. While the question was asked, he turned to look to those present before turning back to Shukie None that you would wish to take unless the pass is truly not up to its name. Wager a quick and steady descent to the south over the paths these paws have found.
    <Calder> Upon mention of his name did his eyes fall from Fianna and Kwa`ani to look then upon Shukie. He then retreated his gaze to the other male to whom he had not formally met. Rook, hmm? This was the Alpha’s son then. He knew quiet a bit of history of this pack… at least name, scents and sights. Of course he’d not smelt him before so he could only go on based descriptions. The trinket in maw he would lower it once more to his paws and tucked the longest end to his chest and offered in low tones. That ricky suavveee voice. ~ The routes in which you took here are the only one’s I know of and are effiecent. I have yet to traverse them again sense coming here so to their conditions I do not know. North is what I know.~
    * Kajika listened to the question but had nothing to add other than his joy for seeing both Rune and this new wolf added as their ranks. When he felt their gazes looking around the circle, he too looked around particularly to see if he could pick up the scents of those he could not see but didn’t move from his spot to investigate. He was sure that since he was one of the last to arrive
    * Kajika that everyone else knew who was present and who wasn’t just from the scents that were in the air, should they be downwind from them. He turned his attention to Ayaka and then Atraya and Shukie as they spoke. He would also tilt his head slightly at the question and the conversation that it brought up. Due to his recent being named and the season, he thought of his bundle of herbs that he had stored that was  just a little more than the size that one wolf could carry but he didn’t bring this up at this time. “I’m also ready to travel, but I would need some time to shrink down what we need to carry with us, just so that we aren’t carrying more than we need.” He was a little late in saying this so his words weren’t too loud, but anyone listening would possibly be able to hear his distracted speech.
    * Fianna would look to everyone, once promotions were done she had paid well and close attention to the words offered, her gaze meeting Calder as the dark brute spoke as well, memory casting back to that uncertain journey when she had not known whether Calder was friend or foe.. And really, she still did not know. He was an enigma. Turning to look at Atraya she would add her own quiet tones. “I am ready to travel whenever you deem the timing right mother.”
    * Rune looks to Kajika, his request caught her attention effortlessly. “Kajika, if you need any assistance, I would be more than happy to do so.” She dips her head to the Caretaker before giving him a quick smile as well.
    * Ayaka would have taken note of all gathered, and she would see that skydancer, nightshade, and Darth were the noteworthy absences
    * Emunah “I’ll follow your lead, Alpha.” She says, voice still hoarse from disuse. She nervously twitches as several unknowns speak up.
    * Ayaka wod look to Atraya and nose her softly. “I am ready to stay behind when ever you should all go, toake certain the other’s know, and can follow
    * Shukie nodded to each brute in turn, taking in their responses and those of the faes. Turning to Atraya, “Perhaps a scout or two sent on ahead? while the rest prepare and perhaps start out tomorrow? or at least start of some tonight down the paths we know well until the rest can be gathered?” Now she turned to Atraya as darkness would not bother the fae at all.. “Your call, alpha.”
    * Shukie catching a few words of Rune’s to Kajika. “Thank you, Ayaka!” smiling to her sister.
    * Atraya gave a quiet nod as she thought upon the others answers. There was but a moment longer that would pass before she would look out ahead of her .”A solid idea, Shukie. I think that is a sound plan.” she would turn to her for a moment then looked to the rest. “Tomorrow morning we will send some scouts to go ahead and look, in the meantime prepare yourself as we leave in the afternoon at  the latest.” she reassured them before rising a paw. “With that, I would like to conclude tonight’s meeting. Thank you and well deserved to all! her paw came down to lower and stomp.

      Pack Meeting Begins

      * Atraya an ear turned slowly as she would listen for those who would heed the call. “First and foremost, I know this will mostly be “OOC” because the pack is spread about. So I will bring it to OOC.”

      * Kwa`ani ‘s focus was no longer on the otter having shifted to the path that led up from the old realm. She hoped that the wolves would show tonight so they could leave out in the morning if not before. Either way she’d head out after Darth. For now, she rested once again upon the lodge that overlooked the pathway below.
      * Nightshade tails swifts happily when she had returned with Kajika and greeted also “yes we returned” and looked around “isn’t the other group here?”
      * Kova would no doubt have heard the howl and would swing her tail slowly behind her, now, making to close that gap.

      The Website

      <Atraya> I was sharing this earlier but I’ve been working on a story line / quest page that will have summaries of past story lines / quests and links to logs, but for the most part the goal of this page is to be informative but also help facilitate information that is given so we all don’t forget. I want to strongly remind you all that this is for your OOC purpose ONLY. You can’t use this as a way to navigate your character magically into part of the story. That has to role played out. This is just an interactive way for me to keep track, have others keep track, and also a fun way to visually look at the things we’ve collected, gathered,etc. I’m trying to make it more fun an interactive! You can see the page here:

      <Atraya> It’s still a WIP (as far as the current story line) but I hope it’s a good starting point.

      <Atraya> Also as a side note, I’m updating our territory map. You can find that here:

      <Ayaka> Woot!
      <Ayaka> *nods, in understanding
      <Nightshade> Coolcool
      * Nightshade nodded
      <Kamaitachi> Sweet
      <Atraya> I’ll also be working on getting everyone’s profiles up to date on the links and what not, but if you haven’t created an account you can do so here: An admin has to approve it but once it’s approved, you are good to go and I can add you to the profile page.
      <Atraya> 1. If you are missing a wolf photo – please send it to me via email or link
      <Atraya> 2. If you have trouble logging in, let me know and I’ll help ya out
      <Atraya> 3. There are parts of the site that are broken, I’m aware, I’m looking into this

      * Nightshade puts up a paw “alpha alpha?”
      <Atraya> Nightshade: Yes 🙂

      <Atraya> Nightshade: Hermmmm ok I will look into this

      * Shukie crosses paws
      * Kilmaten submitted submission

      <Atraya> I had to go in and delete all of them
      <Kilmaten> Gotta find the pic i wanted to use
      <Kilmaten> Oooof
      <Atraya> So now anyone who wants an account has to go through admin approval

      <Atraya> Kilmaten: Approved 🙂
      * Kilmaten cheers!

      <Atraya> Ok, I will take a look when I can
      <Nightshade> This is nothing about the rank update right?

      <Nightshade> Yay
      <Kilmaten> I was gunna send you over a pic
      <Atraya> Kilmaten: PM me please 🙂 (you can also upload your own wolf photo too)

      Pack Ranks
      <Atraya> We haven’t had ranks in a while because there was a lack of activity and a lack of active wolves for sometime to fulfill those roles. As you know we have gradually introduced them with Delta and Care Taker In Training.
      <Atraya> So I’ll be discussing with the members about ranks and roles and I’m hoping to introduce more as time goes on 🙂
      <Atraya> So look forward to that in the coming weeks!
      <Atraya> Anyone have any questions on ranks?
      <Nightshade> Looking forward to it. Hopefully I’ll become member soon
      <Darth> ^^
      * Atraya waits a moment longer in case anyone else has anything they want to add
      <Kwa`ani> me and fia were 3 years in making pack and we were active constantly 🙂

      <Atraya> First and foremost I want to say that I’m very proud of those who are still with us and continue to share this journey with us. To role play and step away from the every day and share your online story with us. To those of you who are active and active when you can be, I just want to extend an additional thank you for being here 🙂 Without you we wouldn’t exist. Second: I know life can be really busy and hectic, it’s totally fair and understandable that you can’t be here 24/7 and I’d never expect people to be. But I ask that you please be patient and let the process play out as it will for your character regarding pledge, assessment and membership. I’m very aware of everyones activity and I promote wolves based on that activity and if they’re ready to join the pack. We’ve had a great deal of active wolves this year and some change and I’m really grateful for that. So, just know that your advancement will go as far as you are willing to take it. On that note, I just want to extend another “Please don’t constantly ask about becoming a member”. When you are ready to be a member, you’ll be made a member 🙂
      <Atraya> I plan to host more meetings in the future to help move people along to. I know some wolves have sat in their positions for a long time due to the fact that there have just been no meetings. I am hoping to change that and keep the flow going.
      * Nightshade lowered head.. srry
      <Kamaitachi> Ok
      <Atraya> Don’t be sorry 🙂 It’s a fair question and I totally get it. I just want to reiterate that point.
      <Nightshade> Just hate the timezones lol lucky the mosquito kept me awake
      <Kamaitachi> I wanna try and work towards. Guardian or scout if those will be ranks when I’m a member?
      <Kamaitachi> Sorry got busy eating dinner
      <Atraya> Kamaitachi: Those are yet ot be determined, but, there’s always room for character growth 🙂 Those could be things to inquire IC as well.
      <Atraya> Nightshade: Ya me to 🙁
      <Kamaitachi> I’ve had kamai go out with sky a few times
      <Ayaka> I am pretty sure asking about ranks is the same as asking about membership Atraya?
      * Nightshade snarled at mosquito
      <Ayaka> It’ll be given when earned?
      <Atraya> Aya: Ya 🙂
      <Atraya> IC wise, wolves are always watching and of course can see potential in your wolf for certain “ranks”
      <Nightshade> Oh maybe an idea to make a calendar thing on the site for events with tinyurl
      <Atraya> So you can ask for your character to have a rank, but, just know that isn’t how it works 🙂 Ranks are earned. Ranks will have meaning and weight. They are not given all willy nilly.
      <Atraya> Nightshade: Yes! I’m working on a calendar! Thank you for the suggestion and reminder 🙂
      * Darth sits quietly, understanding all that is being said
      <Kamaitachi> No.
      <Nightshade> I want a promotion as a .. wolf officer
      <Kamaitachi> Lol
      <Darth> Lol
      * Atraya offers Nightshade a shiny star sticker

      <Atraya> Open Floor – Is there anything anyone would like to talk about or bring up? 🙂

      <Nightshade> Open floor?
      <Kamaitachi> I do
      <Nightshade> Why is the floor open
      <Kamaitachi> It’s probably nothing but is the storyline gonna continue where everyone still has to find their own trinket or whatever?
      <Kamaitachi> Like before we beat mykeer?
      <Kamaitachi> Or is the storyline over?
      <Atraya> Kamaitachi: That’s yet to be seen IC – we finished one of the major plots, but, there’s still more to come
      <Atraya> Waiting for people to return back
      <Kamaitachi> Ok
      <Shukie> I do have a request of everyone
      <Nightshade> Not to difficult
      <Fianna> *perks
      <Shukie> when someone joins the IC, try to put in your next post a good descriptor of where your wolf is and who you’re with so No One has reason to go in OOC .. where’s everyone?
      <Nightshade> Oh I try
      <Shukie> and those joining IC, you need to take time to read what’s going on before posting too
      <Ayaka> Oh I second that
      <Atraya> Thirdsies
      <Shukie> it gets real old to have major or minor things happenig and suddenly someone wakes up right where everyone is
      <Atraya> Yes, please make sure to make the effort to see where people are ic first, before asking.
      <Shukie> and if one has been gone a day or two or weeks , you’re not going to be where you were last time
      <Nightshade> What if you haven’t moved and other did
      <Nightshade> Oh nvm
      <Shukie> if it’s been more than a day, you’d have moved unless you in a coma
      * Kilmaten returns after catching up
      <Nightshade> xD
      <Atraya> wb Kilmaten 🙂
      <Kilmaten> Ty 🙂
      <Atraya> Does anyone have anything else they’d like to add before I conclude this meeting?
      <Nightshade> I always wondered about that like.. if you catching up and u can’t roleplay it out further are you automatically moving with them or
      <Darth> I don’t at this time
      <Shukie> good questions Nightshade: you’d need to rp some reason why you are behind, etc. or gone. and so forth
      <Nightshade> Like with the journey.. I wasn’t able to roleplay along. So it’s difficult to keep up
      <Atraya> Nightshade: If you are on role playing and your group continues on moving and you have to go suddenly, then yes your wolf would assume to follow given it’s not some long march. Otherwise as Shukie stated, you’ll have to come up with a reason why your wolf stopped. Also another side note. If you know you are going to be offline for a period of time (like weeks) please please let us know. Especially if we’re running a story or a quest. Because it’s hard to put you ‘back’ into place when you return if you have a certain role.
      <Nightshade> Yes yes.
      <Nightshade> So I would move on if I have to go offline due time, while in story
      <Atraya> Anyone else? 🙂
      <Atraya> Nightshade: Depends. If you have to go offline for the night and the group was either close to settling or about to, then it would assume that you would be with the group. If they keep moving on then you’ll have to stop your character and catch up. Just ask who ever the group “lead” is.
      <Nightshade> Because they found something when I wasn’t there. My wolf wouldn’t know
      <Atraya> Nope, she wouldn’t so you’d have to RP that out 🙂
      <Ayaka> Also, if you don’t know where everyone is IC wise, please just post like your wolf is seeking the other’s scents
      <Ayaka> Don’t ask for the low down on where everyome is exactly
      <Ayaka> Your wolf wouldn’t necessarily know anyway and that just caters to meta gaming

      <Nightshade> Is “looking around to seek others” allow?
      <Shukie> yups
      <Ayaka> :}
      <Nightshade> Also ApacheWolf needs to be more friendly and gives more variety in drinks xD
      <Shukie> lol
      <Atraya> Nightshade: noted 😛
      <Ayaka> Lol
      <Darth> Valid point Nightshade
      <Shukie> working on that, Nightshade *grins
      <Ayaka> She is a good flood pillow
      <Atraya> Alrighty, I think that ends this meeting! I appreciate you all being here (Especially you Euro wolfies!). I’m hoping to have another meeting in a week or so time 🙂

        Pack Meeting Begins

        A.M Meeting For Euro Wolves
        7/22/2019 @ 9AM

        * Shukie had recovered some from her lost time upon the iceberg. She and ayaka were to have begun searching for prey, and possibly a new home. Their time table had been put assunder when she’d succomed to her dalliance with the ancients. What had been revealed was locked away into her subconscious, mayhap it’d make itself known at various times. She had yet to move other than to twitch her
        * Shukie ears as her nostrils flared taking in what scents were offered to her while her eyes scanned the areas nearby for signs of the pack and her alpha

        * Atraya would be resting just a short distance within the ruins themselves and her head would be on her paws in quiet thought. Fianna no doubt was still beside her as she would listen to the gentle winds as they whispered beyond her sight and to her ears. What did the wind have to tell her this morning? Her head slowly rose off her paws and she would let loose a gentle breath. Today would be a meeting with all the others, she thought, for it was long over due and there was much to discuss.

        <`Raven> <Kamaitachi> *not seeing anyone around, she moved to the carcass, it was picked clean for the most part and she managed to find little to eat on it. As she finished a small morsel she lifted her head to the wind catching what it had to offer. The pack scent still seemed fresh and heading perhaps towards the caves. Seeing none she followed the scent of it was the right direction

        * Kwa`ani stretched, mumbling and grumbling at the cold that just wouldn’t cease. She was glad Shukie had made it off the iceberg safely as she’d begun to worry for the fae. The deep sleep the fae had gone into remided her of when she’d fished the beta from the river and kept her from drowning. She couldn’t keep her mind from replaying what all the pack had suffered through over the past few years. When her mind settled upon her mum who was a few wolf-lengths away an involuntary whimper escaped her muzzle wondering just how her mum was going to continue to lead as alpha.. a blind alpha.. could she even still lead? soooo many changes had befallen the pack. Weren’t they due a respite from all?

        * Darth would possibly see his sister, Kamaitachi, down from the ridge he laid on close to the ruins. If he could, he would give a warm bark to her

        * Kova would have been near the rest as she took to a sentry position just near the others who where gathered beside the lake’s shore. By now the water was breaking up and pieces of what was once solid ice was now starting to show signs of the beautiful crystalline lake below it. The snow melt was rapid by now, and as such, the world around them began to change. She flicked an ear towards the direction of the horizon when she took note of the scents and smells of those who where now awake.

        * Fianna would be laying near Atraya after their chat the previous evening. Her mother’s questions about what she had learned had further solidified the lessons, and she’d been thinking on them most of the day as she kept watch nearby, tail curled around her haunches. Was Kwa`ani near as well?

        * Atraya would be beside Fianna within the ruins and when she felt movement, she brushed her nose along her crown lightly. “Hello Fianna..” she said as she stared out into the horizon. “Tell me.. do you see others down below near the lake? Shukie among them?”

        * kamaitachi heard a chuff above her and turned to notice her brother atop the ruins. She waged her tail to see her brother still safe. “Where is everyone Darth”? She said as she tried to make her way up to him

        * Shukie stirred finally, rising slowly as she continued to stretch which elicited groans of emptiness in her tumtum. Perhaps spotting movements from the alpha family and maybe others she chuffed gently to the alpha family. She’d moved away from the shoreline some time ago not trusting even what she knew to be solid ground.

        * Kwa`ani was close enough for being a few wolf lengths from her sister and mum that she could hear the sounds of their voices but not quite discern their conversation. Moving slowly she eased the sleep from her muscles and chuffed quietly, almost at the same time as the beta that the two chufts would maybe blend a bit. Her tail swaying to see her alpha and sister stirring she began to make her way over, leaning down to nuzzle both faes in a gentle good morning tho she had waited until her mum might look her direction rather than startle her.

        * Ayaka had left some time in the night to make a wide circle around the ruins, keeping her nose seeking any signs of Calder’s return, or that of Phoenix as well. She would glance along the melting snows for pawtracks as well of the two brutes, or signs of any potential game that had passed in the night. By now, she would be circling back toward the ruins, coming from the east.

        * Fianna perked as her mother stirred and spoke, taking note of Kwa`ani as well nearby. She offered her sister a chuff, and then looked to answer Atraya’s questions. “Yes near the lake it seems several to be moving about.. And Shukie seems to be heading this way I think? She offered in light tones.

        * Kova would be resting just below at the lakes edge. She would flick an ear towards the sounds of others and rise to all fours, shaking out her pelt. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and there was no sign of Calder or others therein. No ‘pack’ to come and save the day. She bowed her chest down before yawning. She took note of kamaitachi, Darth and Nightshade whom, if they where still in the open would no doubt see Kova as well.

        * Atraya heard the chuff of her daughter, Kwa`ani, and would swing her tail ever so lightly behind her and offered a chuff in return. “It’s time for a short meeting….” her tail shifted slowly behind her before she rose after quiet some effort. Standing on all fours she took in a low breath before tipping her muzzle and howling to the skies for a gathering. Her howl would be amplified 10 fold within the ruins and boulders. Whirling about and bouncing off stone until it reached the air. The ruins would be a fine place for a meeting, she thought.

        <Faolán> mais, mes pattes…dey weren’t all data concerned with coverin’ where dey been, but dey were a few days gon. Gon south like a silver fox to gata lands if’n ya knew where those far lands were.

        * Darth would hear the alpha’s howl and look to both Nightshade and his sister; “I think you just found them.” He said back to Kamaitachi as he turned to head back into the ruins where he would see much of the pack.

        * Nightshade stretched her frame when she finally find the energy and rose up on her 4 legs, “wondering what this day will bring us” she smiled to Darth.

        * Shukie perked to the alpha howl, lifting her head further relaying the call to meeting for any further away before moving to the ruins from where to call had come, megaphone that it was. With a quiet greeting as she neared the alpha family she slowed and stopped just a few paces from Atraya and her daughters. “Greetings, my alpha, fia, kwa” her tail swaying tho atraya wouldn’t be able to see it. It would take them all to get used to her lost vision and compensate.

        * Kwa`ani ‘s ears flicked at her mum’s howl and hten the added tones of Shukie. “How are you both?” she inquired quietly before the pack would assemble. “can I get you anything mum?” a quiet lilt to her voice. It’d been forever since she’d heard the call to meeting.

        * Nightshade ears perked up when the howl of the alpha was been heard in the distance. She stood up and joined next to Darth and spotted kamaitachi next to his other side ” hello kamaitachi, how are you ”

        * Ayaka would be a few minutes out yet, but close enough to pick up the call.. It was one that she’d not heard for some time, the tones did not sound concerned, more demanding than anything, and while she would pick up her pace some, she remained vigilant in her scouting. No sense in doing a job of it was not done well. She would have found signs of Phoenix to the south, though they had faded, and she had not followed them, merely marked the direction in her mind and continued on. After a few long minutes at a steady trot, she would round a hill and spot the ruins, not far off, making her trail that direction.

        * kamaitachi reached her brother as the alpha howled “I guess I did” she said with a chuckle and looked to night “I am good a bit stiff and my ear still stings where that dang bear cut it open. Her ear had started to swell and turn red. “But what has happened? There’s a tail of blood and whatnot” she said as they walked to the alphas howl

        * Atraya shifted her paws beneath her before she nosed Fianna and Kwa`ani whom where beside her “Is there a nice place for me to stand upon?” she questioned lightly. No doubt the ruins where full of boulders and the like, but towards the center of what looks like an old courtyard would be a single piece of stone that lay towards the center. Flowers and green grass where already sprouted around it.

        * Kova an ear turned to the howl and she swung her tail slowly behind her. Heed it she did! She would no doubt find herself squirrling around for Phoenixes trail at some point as she had another story to share, but for now she was content in padding along the lakes shore and sloshing through snow melt as she made her way up to the ruins.

        * Fianna would nose Shukie as the fae arrived, taking note of the others who she could see were on their way as well. “They are coming mother.” She offered, though she figured the Alphess could scent many of them. Glancing around she would scan the nearby structures and tumbled down stones, none of them seeming a good choice for a blind fae to climb, until her gaze spotted the flat stone just a few yards off. “There is on mother, it’s got moss and flowers# and should be easy enough for you to step up onto.. Want me to lead the way?” She would nuzzle Kwa`ani as she rubbed her shoulder along Atraya’s frame to guide her there.

        * Nightshade took a closer look at kamaitachi ear and nuzzles her ” Sorry that I couldn’t help you ” she said with her head low. “You mean the bloodtrail from the bear or” she asked while they headed to the location of the alpha.

        * kamaitachi “I don’t think so. It led towards here?” She said nosing her back

        * Darth would listen to the conversation of his sister and Nightshade, with the mention of his sister’s injuries, he would look and examine his own.

        * Ayaka wasn’t sure what Darth, kamaitachi, and nightshade were dawdling about for, but she would glance at them s she passed by, making her way toward Atraya and where the Alphess no doubt was trying to get everyone to gather. Soon enough sbe would be up the rise and chuffing to Shukie, the alpha daughters and Atraya herself, looking to Kova as well, and offering a nose to her sister as she arrived with the others.

        * Atraya would sense Shukie near and smile when she heard her voice. She nosed her beta gently across the brow happy to see her before turning towards the horizon “Hello Shukie” her tones light “Glad you’re safe and sound.” she would turn to Kwa`ani and Fianna. “yes please.”

        * Kova when she reached the ruins she would take note of all the wolves who heeded the call. SHe dipped her head lightly before seeing her sister Ayaka. She would decide not to crowd Shukie and the Alpha and made her way to Ayaka. She brushed her nose in a greeting to her, tail waving “hi!”

        * Kwa`ani dropped back then shifted her position to the far side of Atraya seeing where Fianna was guiding her. “The budding flowers remind me of home and the sweet valley just not as colorful nor plentiful” remembering the area fondly. “You’re almost to the stone, mum, watch yer step..” she cautioned in gentled tones. She dipped her head to the others as she greeted each in turn should they be near enough to do so once ehr mum was settled upon the stone perch

        * Atraya gave a nod of her head “Home will always be home and hold it’s natural beauty.” she would add to Kwa`ani’s observation of the lack of flowers more plentiful then their own home. Her paws would splay out here and there as she did her best to find footing. Funny enough she seemed a natural at it in some respects but there was the occasional trip up. This would be no different. Just as she was about to step up she mis-guided the step for her back leg and caught nothing but air. She fell to her stomach momentarily but promptly rose. Yup… no one saw that. She would take a few more steps, tapping the stone before her to find the ‘edge’ and there she stood, tail high and her frame extended as she waited for the others to gather. “Let Shukie take her place here .. but keep close” she said then to Fianna and Kwa`ani.

        * Shukie murrr’d then would issue another brief howl to hurry up any wolves, quite sure this was not easy for Atraya. Once Atraya was settled upon her perch she moved to stand beside it making no mention of the misstep. “The pack is coming, my alpha.” her voice low. Spotting her sister Kova, she yipped quietly in greetings and then to Ayaka.

        * Nightshade spoke to Darth when they neared where Ayaka were and Kova ” What kind of information would have our alphess for us? I like to have further progression since my absence dropped my rank down” as she watched for others she greeted others with a kindly chuff “good to see everyone safe here ”

        * kamaitachi would reach the others and would sit down leaving room for Darth and night beside her

        <Faolán> In truth, he wasn’t all dat far south just yet. Nah, he had a story n’ was fixin’ to tell it, but he needed to see what story dey’d come up with before he mozied on down the ways to le conteur. It was faint, but he heard a howl cut through the air ‘tween him and dese here stones n trees like a stone skippin’ ‘cross the water. Dat’s a pretty voice. Sure hope it has a good story to tell!

        * Kova would’ve reached the ruins and heeded the call. Finding Ayaka among the gathered she seated herself beside her and watched Atraya move up to the stone that elevated her from the earth. She frowned seeing her face as it was but turned to address Ayaka in a greeting. Nosing her softly. SHe heard her sisters yip and swung her tail quickly behind her and chuffed to Shukie in return! There she waited with patience for the meeting.

        * Darth would shake his head upon hearing Nightshade’s question. “I don’t know, but I think we’re about to find out.” He said before nuzzling her and then looking to the alpha to hear what she had to say.

        * Atraya would offer a slow dip of her head to Shukie and look out over the vast horizon in no particular direction for there was no where for her to really look. “Thank you all for gathering. I wanted to host a meeting for we’ve not gathered in sometime.” she began “As you know we’ve been through quiet a bit these past weeks and now that things are settled it is time to discuss what comes next, but for now, I would like to start this morning’s gathering and meeting with promotions.” her gaze continued to ‘look out’ “Nightshade and Darth.. please come forward.”

        * Ayaka would settle near Kova, glancing away as Atraya stumbled but admirably kept on and up onto the stone, she nuzzled Kwaani’s back and would perk as she listened as the Alphess began, glancing to where Nightshade and Darth would he called forth. She kept her senses alert, as the other’s focused primarily on the meeting she would keep atunes should Calder or any other choose that moment to make his entrance.

        * Kova flicked an ear to the Alpha’s call of two wolves. She smiled looking to Nightshade and Darth.

        * Fianna would nod after helping her mother to the stone, she would make way for Shukie and settle just before the stone, listening, watching as the two were called forth.

        * kamaitachi looked to her brother and night as they were called. Wondering what was going on

        * Nightshade ears swiveled when she heard her name, she glanced at Darth and smiled nervously towards him and turned back to the others “Yes my dearest alphess” she responded and took a few steps forwards and dipped her head, not surely how to show respect, this was her way to let that know.

        * Darth would look around before looking to Nightshade before approaching the alpha’s position. When he approached, he bowed his head in respect. “Yes, my alpha? We are here” He said, remembering her sight was gone.

        * Atraya tilted her head hearing Nightshade approach and waited for Darth to do the same to determine the pair where standing before her “Darth and Nightshade… you both have been loyal pledges to the pack for several months now. Longer then most but you’ve proven yourself worthy and true to the pack. I would like to ask you both now, do you still desire to call WolfSpirits your home?” she would pause waiting for their responses once they settled.

        * Darth would wave his tail from side to side as the alpha spoke. “Of course I do, my alpha. Ever since my sister and I entered into the old pack lands, and started to get to know the pack; I knew this is where I wanted to call my home. Through all we have been through these past few months, I have thought of everyone here as my family. It would give me no greater pleasure than to continue to call Wolfspirits my home.” He said

        * Nightshade listened to what the alphess said, the words what was been said ment much to her, she wished nothing more than that and showed a shy smile and sat on her hindquarters. “My alphess, your words means much to me, I want to thank you and everyone else for welcoming me, I might have been reckless in times what could have bring us in danger, I might have been failed in times where the pack needs me more than ever, my absence might ranked me down, but by all of this… I’m glad that nobody doubt about my loyalty” a tear was fallen on the ground “My dearest alphess, I wish nothing more to be one with the pack, to call the pack my family. Yes.. I still desire to call wolfspirits as my home, as my safe haven and my place to return”

        * Atraya gave a nod to their responses and took them to heart. “You both have seen and done more in your pledgeship then most and as such, your heart and spirit have shown the reflection of what it means to be a WolfSpirit.” she paused for a moment to catch her thoughts as she turned in Nightshade’s direction then Darth’s. “.. as such, I would like to have the honor of naming you Darth Assessment to WolfSpirits… and you Nightshade Assessment to Wolfspirits. You may introduce yourself as such to all you come in contact with. I hope that your strength, will, and resolve hold true for this pack could use blood as strong as yours. May your path to our home be made with determined paws for I know you’ve much to live for here with us.” there would be no time for pause in her words and as she made it so, she would lift her head up as much as the pain would allow and offer forth a howl to the pair.

        * Kova when her alpha would howl she too would join in for a chorus for the pair. She was glad to see them move up and hoped that they would continue to keep their path with her home.

        * Ayaka thought about Atraya’s words as she listened. Wolfspirits was home. No matter how far they traveled. The land was just that, earth, rock, stone, plant. It was not home. She glanced to each face of her packmates, glad to know and remember that she had home wherever she was, as long as she was with them. As Darth and Nightshade made assessment she would give a chuff for them both, and a wag of her tail, to see them take the next step in their membership.

        * kamaitachi would howl for her brother and nightshade

        * Fianna would lift her own muzzle and wag as she chuffed loudly, excitement over the advancement running through her. They were more committed now than ever and she looked forward to seeing their paths unfold!

        * Nightshade ” Thank you, I’m honored to be an assessment of the wolfspirits, I’ll do my best and help where I can, that’s a promise on my heart” as the alphess howled, and the others will tune in, her head lifted up to the sky and joined the beautiful song from the wolves.

        * Darth would lean over and nuzzle Nightshade as they were named assessments of the pack. “One step closer in our journey to membership”. He said, proud to be able to advance within this pack he was proud to call his family. He bowed his head to the alpha “thank you my alpha!”

        * Nightshade thought about the sudden absence from others, she wanted to know where everyone else where, and somehow, Darth seems to act closer towards her, should the pack took a notice of it? She licks Darth his muzzle and nudged him.

        * Atraya gave a nod to the pair as she would twitch her nose this way and that. There where several gathered all the same but she was growing slightly tired already. Seating herself just to get comfortable she would press her paws beneath her. “Now onto pressing matters. These lands have held some promise to herds and food. Ayaka… Kova… can you confirm this?” her head remained pointed ahead. Waiting to see where they ‘sat’ to address them.

        * Shukie opt’d to say rather than just nod to the approaching wolves. “Nightshade, Darth.” her tones quiet yet easily heard by all present. she would give a dip of ehr head to Nightshade and Darth, a tap tapping of her paws upon the earth in recognition of their promotion. At Atraya’s request to her sister and Ayaka. Otherwise she remained stoically beside Atraya.

        * Kova turned an ear to the mention of her name and she would slowly rise. She dipped her head and looked to Ayaka for a brief moment for clarity before responding in kind “Yes Alphess. There’s plentiful herds just east of here in the valley below. More then we’ve seen in our own hunting grounds for a long while.”

        * Kwa`ani worried for her mother and at her mention of Kova and Ayaka she perked waiting on their report, staying quiet which was so out of character for her after congratulatory yips to the pair. It had been so long in deed since the last meeting she was struggling to remember protocals.

        * Ayaka would look to Kova a moment as Atraya asked her question, then think on her own findings during her scouting rounds. She would wait until Kova finished speaking then nod her agreement. “Remembering our own territory was so vacant of prey, this area seems much more plentiful. I have yet to see signs of bison, but I believe I’ve seen deer, Caribou, as well as sheep.. The Caribou especially like the valley just south of here.” She confirmed

        * Atraya would give a nod to the pairs assessment and glad to hear of it. There would be a long drawn out pause from her as she thought quietly to herself, then continued. “As you know our lands have suffered from the recent events of the year and past year. It was not my intention to search for new lands to claim as our own… but I feel that it may be necessary to expand, or, at the most extreme migrate where the food is.” there was a lot of weight to her words, much to consider and to think upon, but she had to put the pack’s best interest at heart. With her mate gone and son still missing, she’d feel that weight heavy upon her shoulders. “I ask the pack now, those who are of it and those who seek to join us…” her gaze ‘turned’ to Shukie “What of these lands to be claimed under WolfSpirits reign. Nae? Aye?”

        * kamaitachi knowing the food was scarce she would look to the alpha “I don’t mind going there. Even if we decide to go back when were able. As long as we’re together I’m happy.” She said with a tail wag. This was her family now and she didn’t care where they lived as long as it was together

        * Shukie was always one to hear from others and their opinions before voicing her own. She gazed about to those present giving a nod in the pack’s general direction to speak freely of their thoughts, nodding to kamaitachi when the fae spoke up.


        * Fianna would not be a member yet, but she would think hard on her mother’s words, her own thoughts turning inward and to Faolan and Rook. Eventually she would look at Atraya and speak softly, thoughtfully. “Mother.. Rather than claiming any land as our own.. Rather than settling down, might we not travel? See what the world has to offer and in turn, perhaps find papa and Rook? Despite the dangers our latest travels had offered, I have enjoyed seeing more of the beauty and sights I have never thought to see..” wasn’t sure such a thing as traveling for a long time were possible for a pack, yet she voiced it nonetheless

        * Darth thought for a long moment, he didn’t know much about the shortage of food in the old territory. “Are we sure this land is not claimed by another pack? This pack has seen and been through enough for a bit, I’d hate for the pack to be drawn into a war.” He said aloud, thinking of the best interest of his family.

        * Kwa`ani stood next after her sister spoke up, making sure to scratch her paws upon the earth to give signal to her mum. “Alphess. I would suggest we regain our strength here through the summer at least rather htan make a rash decision to move now.” Her mum was anything but rash.” She looked to those around them here, “There are those that were not present in our home when we left so long ago. Perhaps we should send one or two wolves back and guide any wolves to where we now are if we are to remain here?” With that said she made plenty of sounds to indicate she once again sat after saying her peace. At Darth’s words, something she’d not thought on before she nodded but didn’t add to it.

        * Nightshade listened quietly and focused about the information from the new area where they are now, say what now? Does that mean we aren’t returning to their former land? “Is it safe enough for us to stay? In the beginning of our new journey, there were some new wolves with us, as I can remember Okkezzon and Calder and might some other who I can’t remember the name of,.” She paused and continued with soft tone ” the Foodstock is important to keep us alive, but what if we have left some Lost members who still wandering for us there?” She felt uneasy about this new place, this only brought bad memories to them… blood, betrayal and dead.. wouldn’t that be t harder to make it ur home? Hearing Darth his words and others her doubt grown.

        * Ayaka considered all the things spoken, particularly as Fianna added her own thoughts. She too would love to see the pack reunited with their alpha male and the alpha’s son, but so too did she know that often times a pack needed stability, and a source of food they could count on more often than not. She would wonder if there was a way to ensure they would find food if they were to travel. As well Darth had a good point and she’d nod in thought. “I think there is little for us to return too at our old homeland, until several seasons have grown around the esrth’s scars. I agree that perhaps we should send a few to check for any left behind. I also agree with Fianna, though, in that my heart longs to find your mate, Atraya, and our alpha. I would not be averse to another quest to find him. We found you, after all.”

        * Kova thought quietly while the rest offered their words. She took them in as they where given and gave a nod of agreement as well. Fianna’s own suggestion ringing true to her. Inwardly she knew they now had to find their missing Alpha more then ever now. Besides she loved to wander the beautiful lands of this world and what it had to offer. It allowed her to recall the adventures she shared with her sister, Shukie, to reach the pack. There was much out there to explore. “I too agree with the sentiments shared.” gave a nod to Ayaka’s input for it too reflected her own thinking.

        * Shukie remained motionless beside Atraya tho not upon the rock the fae stood upon. Each of the wolves had brought up excellent points and valued opinions. “I, too. My alpha. Agree we need to be stable for at least a fair while” she paused for effect and to gain more of Atraya’s attention. “You need time to get your paws under you to adjust to lack of sight to move easily upon your own.”  Giving her full attention back to the pack itself. “We have had losses here, but so we have in our homelands. Death is a part of life. I propose we settle here for now, regain our strength and find out if others have returned to our lands.” She glanced to the top of the tallest ruin, “We also have a weee pup to care for now as well. I can see to marking some boundaries to start staking our claim here. It is a good place with advantage of visibility far and wide.”

        * Atraya would listen to each wolf in turn and took to their thoughts and suggestions to heart. She knew well enough Calders “claim” and of course knew what it would entail should she try to lay claim to it for their pack. Would this area be beneficial for them to even hold domain over? There was much to think on. All valued points and all things to consider. She didn’t desire a war either but there was little in the way of evidence that Calder held more to a pack then just himself. But she needed to be sure. “All true and valid points.” she would say in thought. “We will remain here for a while longer. I will lay claim to at least this valley and to the stretch that includes the herds. I will then send a select few back to our old territory to see it’s progress. Also… I would like to venture further northward so I will require a few scouts to go ahead and observe but wander not to far. If we are to adventure and find something beyond this point we do it as a pack.” again she paused as her brow furrowed with what looked like emotion. “To find our Alpha and my son, Rook.” she would wait for a moment now, allowing the others to offer their words.

        * Nightshade “Is Calder still a threat to us? ” she asked Shukie and Atraya ” he might be disappeared, but who knows .. if he suddenly jump up… he might still lure and we don’t know if he has something on her mind, he brought us as well Atraya in danger which lead her to blindness. ” wasn’t glad with the idea.. “who was Okkezzon and the other male who joined us? I like to know if there’s no upcoming danger for us here, of course I wish to return to our old safe place..but…” she stopped her sentence as she realized that’s not gonna happen maybe and dipped her head.

        * kamaitachi thought a moment “alpha, I’m not a member yet but I find scouting a great thing and I would love to go onwards with a few others. I wanna make it my passion to be a scout for the family and pack” she said kind of nervously but confident. She didn’t know if ahe had the power to ask that. She was still new to pack customs

        * Kova turned an ear to all the others and gave a nod of her head. She would be happy to fulfill any role that was given to her. She remained vigilant while she observed the proceedings. There was much to think on, much to do and much to tell. Yes… another story might do. Perhaps a certain path of another she would follow southward after the meeting.

        * Atraya listened to the concerns as well the insights to the new prospects “All valid Nightshade..” she would continue to look ahead “He is in my radar and has been watched after. We will see what he truly gains or looses in the coming days. For now, keep your distance.” she advised to the fae “Okkezzon? I’ve not seen him sense we left… I am not sure where his path takes us, but, he gave no reason to doubt his intentions. Until he proves otherwise, he is fine.” she flicked an ear to kamaitachi’s tone and gave a nod “You’re request is noted.” she kept reclined back on her haunches. “Does anyone else have anything they wish to add before I adjourn this meeting for now until we continue later this evening?”

        * Darth would look around and listen to what every other wolf said and thought on it. “May I propose, that if we are to go back and look for wolves still in the old territory; that they take a look at the food there, and report back with their findings upon their return, all before we vote on a new territory?” He said for thought.

        * Nightshade understood her advice and brought bit calmness into her mind ” If there’s anything u wish me to do, to support or fulfill any task let me know, I like to join that with Darth” as she looked at Darth she wonders what kind of things he has planned for.

        * Ayaka would think on all that was said, and the decisions made by Atraya. They were sound in wisdom and she backed them wholeheartedly. Rest and recover, out down small roots only, and when the time came, set off to reclaim their alpha, if they could. She would shake her head, then speak as she remembered Atraya could not see her motions. “I am ready and able to do any of the things you mentioned, or stay here and keep watch.
        * Ayaka I have nothing further at this time.” She would add, so the Alphess would know.

        * Shukie dipped her head in Darth’s direction. “I think this gives us suggestions and ideas to ponder and will also need ot get those who are not present an opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions.” She nodded to Ayaka, “Well said, Ayaka. Wise words.” She was not ready to make any decisions just yet. “I will see to marking areas, my alpha, if you wish it.”

        * Darth “I stand ready for whatever task you need of me, my alpha. I have nothing further to add right now.” He said as he bowed his head.

        * Kwa`ani had remained quiet, “What will you have me do, alpha, beta” She addressed both and was she ever glad to have both in the same place for a change. At Shukie’s mention of the pup she glanced to where she’d last seen him tho was sure he’d likely moved with teh coming of the day, tho maybe not.

        * Atraya would nod to Darth “Aye, that would be part of the mission.” an ear turned towards Ayaka and Shukie. “Yes please. I will follow behind…” she said in low tones “I’ll need a guide.” she admitted but found no shame in it, at least, not outwardly. When the others offered no more in the way of words she would stomp her paw “Very well. Thank you all for being here to attend this meeting. We will continue tonight when the moon has just risen to the sky and darkness not yet settled to these lands. It will allow me to ponder on who will take what role.” she dipped her head “Thank you all”

        Pack Meeting Begins

        P.M Meeting Continued
        7/22/2019 @ 5:30PM

        * Kajika was making his way back from the top of the tower where they had stacked the rocks. This was becoming more of a familiar site and the view from it was something he hadn’t seen anything nearly as grand that rivals it in how relatively safe it was for quite some time. His head lifted up and paused for a moment before he got to his paws without a word and would make his way down the tower and on his way down, some of the missing bricks in the walls were wide enough that he could see a wolf approaching the tower but was a little too far to see who it was from this far.

        * Atraya when she gauged the days time she found herself rising to a seated position and there peering out ‘ahead’ of her. A long drawn out sigh was given as she had much to think on, but, she wanted to proceed with the meeting. Having succumbed to a long nap, she didn’t anticipate she’d be asleep for that long and so when she came around she would be some what surprised at how much time had passed. A yawn escaped half parted jowls before she would let loose yet another howl. A howl for a gathering to those who were not already there.

        * Nightshade “I’m still where I was the meeting before, now I’m halfway deaf ” she teased her alphess Atraya “at least if ur still on the same spot or I haven’t sleepwalked” she nudges softly Darth his frame.

        * Darth ‘s ears would perk at the sound of the Alpha’s howl. Lifting his head up, and looked toward the alpha’s position. He looked to Nightshade and smiled as she joked with the alpha, before sitting up to listen to the alpha.

        * Kwa`ani wasn’t far off when her mother’s howl erupted breaking the sounds of day ending and night beginning. She turned on her heals and made her way back to where they’d met earlier in the day having been patroling the nearby areas. With a howl in response she would let others know she was on her way. Her pace wasn’t slow but it wasn’t a run either, just steady and sure that she’d arrive shortly showing no signs of her return. She’d take note of who was there and who was not.

        * kamaitachi based the alphas howl and would put her ear on wait and deal with the pain. She would sit down and wait to see what else was to be said

        <Faolan> Shoooo-eeee! Yeah, love she a sea, a river, da air…all those things when it foamed at the mouth, led ya on down the bayou, and smelled a somethin’ like three-day ol’ gumbo in the sun. Mais, I tell you what else carries on the wind…a howl n’ he had his ears on a number. Dis-moi pas…they all singin’ kumbaya ’round a rock and invitin’ trouble along with it. Elle est aussi vaillant comme la porte de prison, cher…she a cold mistress if’n she find em there. He was already on his way back when another howl came thunderin’ down the south.

        * Shukie perked to the sound of Atraya’s call, promptly returning from her marking of an outer boundary as it seemed a few others were speaking their scents by way of rubbing against stone, tree and shrubbery. The more scents scattered the better, also the better for Atraya to have a bit of a guide should she move about until she’d get her bearings better. As she approached she took stock of those present and would relay this information to Atraya after a gentle greeting and settled beside the fae. SHe owuld get in the habbit of diong a kind of left to right of those nearby in giving the alpha at least an idea to direct her sightless gaze. She was unaware of the buzzbugg imitator from the bayou whatever a bayou was.

        * Atraya the crown of her head dipped downwards towards those who would heed the call for a continuation of the meeting. Her nose came to brush along Shukie as she would greet her again. Dipping her head to her presence she looked out. She was grateful for their presence and would make short order on the pauses and get right to it. Her head tipped upwards as she tried to pick the scents that where there. Leaning towards Shukie she would nose her lightly before ‘looking out ahead’ again. She leaned into Shukie and whispered.. ~ Is Kwa`ani and Fianna present? ~

        * Kajika heard the sound of a howl that didn’t sound too far away. It sped up his paws but he still placed them deliberately on the stones when he placed his paws down. He didn’t know it was the second summoning howl but he would do his best to make sure to arrive safely for there not to be a third. Down down the spiraling staircase and sidestepping around the same missing bricks until he arrived in the first chamber that one would see when entering the ruins. It wouldn’t take much longer before he would find the rest of the pack by both scent and sound.

        * Ayaka would have been within the ruins themselves, perhaps in another courtyard along the far side, she didn’t know anything about court, nor yards for the world was her playground. Whenever the howl was issued she’d have her nose stuck under a pole of rubble where she’d hid the unused key from the cavern. Now, after a few minutes of getting it loose she’d be on her way back toward the other’s, the key held within her maw. She figured perhaps it should be kept closer, for wj knew when it might come in handy. Maybe never. Eventually she would move into the courtyard where the others gathered, for she’d not been far off. With a chuff around the key, she’d announce her presence to all and move to settle near Kova and Fianna, unknowing the deep heart felt talk they’d been having she gave them a goofy smile around the key before setting it down to perk at Atraya.

        * Shukie would nod to Atraya, the nod felt in a return nuzzle while also completing a quick report of who was now before her. In a quiet tone only for hte alpha’s ears, “would it be easier for me to sit beside you rather than you leaning down not sure just wehere my head is?” that last could be taken a couple ways.

        * Atraya gave a nod to her “if I can lean in, yes that would be great” she whispered back before clearing her throat. She would point her nose where the ‘gathered’ where and offer “Fianna and Kwa`ani.. please come forward”

        * kamaitachi looked to the faes that atraya had called forward in interest

        * Fianna the very rivers and sea? She had thought hard bout that. Love was the very essence of herself? With a minute nod of her head she would lean to nuzzle Kova. “Thank you for sharing such words of wisdom. I am learning, slowly.” She felt that some of those feelings had been true within herself, but it had only been a bud, given too little water, and time in the sun. It was not the true full bloom of love that she might one day experience. Did she want to? She did, yet in future she must be more careful. As Atraya howled she would sit up straighter and glance around for Kwa`ani, and to see who else had gathered while she was lodged within her own mind.

        * Kova an ear turned to the sound of a call and it would belong to their alpha, Atraya. Another meeting would be held again. She would pause her thoughts and her words for Fianna before brushing her nose along her crown once more “We’re being called again.. let us continue after.” she said in light tones before she turned herself around and would be facing Atraya and the others. She hadn’t gotten up from her spot sense the meeting adjourned some hours ago.

        * Nightshade perked her ears and would pay attention at the alphess while she kept an eye on Darth and watched the two wolves who was called

        * Kwa`ani would plop her back side down not too far form others when …*blink* her mum called her and her sister? “Yes, Alpha.” She spoke clearly, enunciating to give her mum timre to pin point her. WHen she stopped, she would scratch at the ground while waiting for her sister to come beside. “what can we help you with, my alpha”

        * Shukie whispered to Atraya, :she’s arriving now, off with kova it seems:

        * Fianna would have clearly been thinking some deep thoughts for it wasnt until a few moments later after Atraya called her name that she would rise belatedly, wait what? She trotted to catch up with Kwa`ani and would stand before the stone upon which Atraya would occupy. “I am here mother.” She added to alert the Alphess.

        * Atraya listened to Shukie and nodded. When her two daughters approached there was a pause. A thought. A memory. Like a scene from the past coming to replay in her mind. It would be the only thing she has sight for and it would be those memories. Those moments. It was there a flash of her children but mere pups. Innocent to the world and to the ways around them. Learning and growing with each passing day by their own doing and the pack. How they’ve grown. She recalled exactly what they looked like and was glad to have seen them grow into the wolves they where. A mother truly proud. Snapping back to the darkness therein, she began “Fianna and Kwa`ani… as you know it isn’t our way to allow those born into the pack to achieve immediate membership. It is a right that must be earned.” she paused for but a breathe and continued “You have grown into fine wolves throughout your time here in WolfSpirits, your home and birth pack. You have found strength in each other through difficult times and through undemanding times. Your spirits and hearts are true as I’ve ever felt. This journey, like many others soon to come, will be a testament to your resolve and true heart. I would like to ask you both now; is WolfSpirits still the place you desire to call home?”

        <Faolan> Dis here the path of a yo-yo if it were on the ground and ignored all those properties of friction and inertia a course. He didn’t reckon he knew about inertia or friction…’haps not even a yo-yo, but he’d heard tale a Raven that got hold a somethin like one and then bobbed somethin’ fierce until it fell off a tree. That story had earned his packmate a fine seat at the carcass that night. Regardless, on he trudged like a winding yo-yo a sorts headin’ on to what he’d reckon was a story.

        * Kwa`ani stood a little taller as her mother and alpha spoke. It took no thought, “I was born into WolfSpirits adn I shall die a WolfSpirit when the time should come. I shall do what I can to ensure the pack continues.” perhaps her mother would sense the dipping of her head in a bow of sorts but likely not. One thing her papa had taught her and Shukie drove home.. words are meaningless, it is actions that give the true answer.

        * Fianna would weigh her words well, fully focused now on the scene at hand, on her mother’s question. What was she but a wolfspirit? What was a home? “Yes mother, my Alphess. More than that, wolfspirits is a part of me, deeper than a home, it is more than comfort. A wolfspirit is who I will always be, and as such I will strive to be a strength, and not a weakness to those I call pack.” She would feel the words deeply, meaning each and not trying to be flowery or persuasive. She would have looked to Kwaani as well as her sister would speak.

        * Atraya waited with controlled breaths as she listened to her daughters words. There was a familiar pang of guilt, nae, sadness that their father wasn’t currently here for she knew this would no doubt be a monumental achievement for their young. How mature and grown they’ve become. Proof of their own stories forging anew. Pages added to their collection. The brief pause was short lived and she would continue albeit with a smile. “As a member of WolfSpirits you will continue to learn and grow from one another, but as well, your pack. You will learn where your place among family resides and to what roles you will fulfill in time. You will stride with true of heart. To keep your spirit strong and pure. To learn and grow from all of life’s experiences. To learn from those lessons well forged from times beyond your own. Do you promise to uphold the ways of your pack. The ways of WolfSpirits? To enforce the rules if must? To defend and to love your pack and family no matter what? To uphold the foundations that your father and I, and those who’ve come before you, have done?”

        * Kajika arrived, panting lightly panting but he arrived just in time to see the closing statements of Fianna and Kwa`ani as his tail immediately started to wag with his excitement that it became a nuisance for him when he tried to sit down amongst the others gathered. He knew that they were the offspring of the Alphas and that their membership wasn’t automatic, so seeing the two of them now becoming full members of the pack that they were born to.

        * Ayaka would be settled now beside Kova, key forgotten for the time being by her paws as she watched the two grown pups stand before their mother, their Alphess, to step into their own, to become full pack. Her chest swelled with pride for how far they’d come as she listened.

        * Kova her own excited tail wave was made as she would press her frame against Ayaka’s with anticipation. She turned seeing Kajika arrived and she dipped her head in his direction before her eyes once more transfixed on the proceedings.

        * Nightshade glanced at kajika and chuffed him a greet ” hello kaji,”

        * Darth would watch as the two faes would be going through almost the same thing he and Nightshade had done only a few hours earlier. What pride they must feel right now.

        * Fianna would stand tall, head up and wars forward as she looked up at her mother, memorizing each feature, even her now sight less eyes. Each piece of history was now hers to claim, hers to be truly a part of. She would take a deep breath exhaling and answering in equal measure to Atraya’s serious tones. “I promise to uphold these things. My pack will be put before even my own life.” There would be more weight, going forward, against each action and decision she would make, for now it would reflect on her pack, for she would be a part of a bigger whole.

        * Nightshade ” I hope we will achieve once what they now got ” she whispered at Darth ” looked with happiness at Fianna and Kwa`ani and would congratulate them when the alphess was done

        * Kwa`ani gave her sister a light shoulder nudge and a soft murr trying to contain her excitement. It would take a moment or two before she calmed enough to respond, “As much as I always have and always shall, Pack is family. It is not just blood that makes family but the bonds formed by all. In all ways I shall. the future of the pack shall be seen too, as much as wolfly possible.” her tones sharp and clear and filled with emotion.

        * Shukie whispered again to Atraya, “they are both standing tall and their expressions show their heart in their words, words of the soul” the whisper would go no further than Atraya’s ear and it would not be likely that others would discern the minute movements of her muzzle.

        * Atraya upon their shared agreement to the code of their pack she would smile. Shukie’s description helped her picture just that. Her paws would hold firm as was her decision to rise from her heart. She continued to look out and allow the words to sink and fall in tandem with her heart before she tipped her muzzle up to address the pack. “As all have lay witness to their vow to uphold the ways of WolfSpirits, the way of their spirit and of their heart, I would like to have the honor and privilege to name Fianna Mean Oíche and Kwa`ani Mean Oíche WolfSpirits members! You dance to the music you hear however measured or far a part and to that end, you dance with WolfSpirits. Welcome home my dears…” there would be but only a moment to pass for her words to sink in with the rest of the group before her heart, truly filled to the brim with joy, would over-spill into a long deep howl in congratulations to her two daughters advancement to pack. It had been a long time coming and now it was theirs. Her tone would last a little longer, perhaps in some measurement she was adding to another’s call who was missing. One who would not be there to witness but hopefully feel wherever the distance has taken him. Hopefully to hear their shared voices and song.

        * kamaitachi let her voice chime in at the members. So many advancements today it seemed.

        * Darth would join in the celebratory howl for the pair

        * Nightshade tunes in with everyone and howls deeply with full emotions for the pair who become members.

        * Shukie lifted her own head to the skies overhead lending her own vocals to that of her Alpha, proud of the two faes and how far they’d come from bumblign pups that triped over their own paws. “Forever more you shall be known as wolfspirits, daughters of Faolan and Atraya, granddaughters of Kovo and grandniece of Spirit.” Her voice rang again punctuating her words

        * Kova couldn’t contain it and would lift her muzzle sky high and let loose a howl in unison to her family and pack! She would welcome the two sisters into their fold with open hearts and open paws. She was so proud of the pair for all they’ve accomplished and yet to do so now as pack!

        * Kajika nosed Ayaka back and dipped his head in greeting to Nightshade as he greeted him before he would turn his head to follow the meeting as it continued. Once they were officially made members, he would raise his voice for the new members of their pack. His paw even stamped a few times on the ground in his excitement now. He would have to fight the urge to go up and greet them as it wasn’t the time for that yet and he wouldn’t be sure if he would be interrupting anything else. So, he just sat patiently and cast his voice to the winds.

        * Kwa`ani would blush at the praise if a wolf could blush. In a hushed tone from a bowed head she whispered to her sister, “We ARE WolfSpirits! Not just in blood” tho they had shed much blood for hte pack over their short lives thus far. When her mum and Shukie and the rest howled she too lifted her head, not for just herself and Fianna but for all WolfSpirits past, present and future.
        * Nightshade “congratulations Fianna and Kwa`ani ” and nuzzles them careful, she took a few steps backwards when she had done. “Hooraay for the 4 new goals ” she howled once more.

        * kamaitachi wouls end her howl and sit there curling her tail around her paws again

        * Ayaka would lift her muzzle, throwing her head back and her voice into the fray for she was proud dangit!! The two had grown and matured and she was more than happy to welcome each of them as pack!

        <Faolan> Oh, nah see? Dis was a fine story to catch the middle of. He had just come into range a listenin’ and listenin’ he did. There was much to it; nothin’ needin’ secrecy selon lui, but he did not intrude nor did he venture closer than a good stone’s throw away. Dese fine wolves had the gris-gris somethin’ fierce.

        * Fianna too would feel a blush beneath, and she would prance her paws some as the swell of voices welcomed her home, her mother’s voice louder and prouder than all the rest, and perhaps she could hear Faolan, papa, in those tones too. If Rook were here, would he be a wolfspirit now too? She ached for him her stone half even as she lifted her muzzle and howled for Kwa, for what it meant to be a wolfspirit. She brushed her shoulder along her sister’s frame. “Good job sis. You earned it. ” Then she would look at Atraya again. “Thank you mother. I will strive to act as befits one of the wolfspirits.” With that she would turn and take her place back beside the other’s.

        * Atraya swung her tail slowly behind her and when the calls would fall to the sky and beyond she dipped her head and smiled “Congratulations you two… well earned.” she allowed them the moment to venture back to their seats now as a WolfSpirit before she nosed Shukie allowing her to proceed with the next action.

        * Kova swung her tail behind her, howling and yipping in joy for the two before she would relax once more. Once she settled she would lean in and nose Kwa`ani and Fianna, welcoming them to the pack’s fold before reclining back and nosing Ayaka softly and listened intently to the next order of business. If Phoenix was near enough for a sniff, she might smell him out?

        * Shukie nodded to Atraya while responding quietly, the motion of her head likely sensed in her words, “aye, Alpha”. It would be then she straightened a bit taller this time gazing past the pups and new assessments seeking just one. In fact, she let her gaze drift over them a few times before settling upon Kajika, “Kajika, please come forward” A smile upon her muzzle

        * skydancer blinks sleepily as all the howling wakes her up and then jumps to her paws and rushes to join the pack, not that she has far to go

        * kamaitachi looked as kajika was called. She would have to speak to him as he seemed to be carrying foe the injured and she needed her ear to stop hurting

        * Kwa`ani drew in a slow breath letting it out even slower forgetting she’d already taken a long, indrawn breath. their path was now set upon them. She would follow her sister and sit beside her. “Congrats! sis!” she quietly whispered. She sat in quiet now watching as the meeting continued not expecting Shukie to be chimming in. That trew her off for a bit, quickly settling tho.

        * Darth would watch as Kajika was called up by the Beta.

        * Kajika blinked for a moment as he was called up but didn’t hesitate to move forward. He would gently nose Kwa or Fia on their way back if he could on their way back before pausing in front of Shukie, Atraya and the rest of the pack after a deep breath and a slight incline in his head before respectfully lowering it in front of the two of them.

        * Ayaka would nuzzle both Kwa`ani and Fianna as the two came to settle if they were close enough for her not to make a scene. After a moment she’d return her attention to the stone and Atraya upon it, and Kajika as the brute moved from beside her to walk forward. Curiosity grew within her, even though she had a guess as to the next proceedings. She would watch,wait, and listen

        * Fianna could still feel her nerves and adrenaline thrumming within her as she settled back upon on her haunches. Pride for making it this far sang through her as well, and she tilted her head up to look at the sky as it darkened for a moment, before drawing breath and attempting to focus on the next line of business.

        * Kova ear spun about as she looked to Shukie and now Kajika. Curious hues would be settled with a ‘light’ glance but now perked even more so as the male was called forward. Her entire body shuttered with excitement now calmed as she would focus on the proceedings.

        * Faolan sure would be close enough for a sniff on the wind. Ain’t nothin’ a wolf could do about that, cher. He was, afterall, gettin’ another part of the story for free.

        * Shukie waited for a bit giving the pack time to quiet and refocus. “Kajika, you have taken the initiative to try and aid the pack with their injuries and seeing to their well being. There is much you have to learn and much Atraya and I have to teach you among others. For this reason,” she paused to glance at Atraya before continuing. “Not everyone is suited to this calling, some not realizing it until far later in their training.” she was quiet and still for a moment then just continued, “Will you consider taking on the mantle of Caretaker in Training?” Her pause would allow Atraya opportunity to add more should she want too. The male’s position would be fully known by Atraya when he would speak.

        * Kova an ear turned towards the whisper of the mountain air and what she had to tell. Interesting. Her nose wiggled this way and that as she picked up Phoenix’s scent. He was close. If anything, ear shot away. She felt her body tense just a little as she turned to look in that direction. Could she see him? Or was it just a smell. There was a moment where she looked away but the proceedings had her look back again to Shukie and Kajika. His presence now in her mind and radar.

        * Atraya would give a simple nod to Shukie, indicating she would allow it to proceed and whatever words Shukie offered, would suit well.

        * skydancer listens quietly as she takes position in the back her preferred place though judging by kajikas promotion she might not be an option for much longer.. her nose twitches suddenly as the wind carries that cryptic wolfs scent across her nose.

        * Kajika would nod as Shukie listed some of his actions and his tail gave a slight wag that he just couldn’t hold back. He was still decently young, now just over 4 years old and that was still plenty of time to both learn as much as he could while also passing on what he knew to others. He glanced around at some of the wolves settled around that he had helped in healing and had even learned a thing or two and he could immediately identify a few that also took an interest in the role. He knew in particular that he had a few things to learn from not only the two of them but others as well. He turned his attention back to Shukie and Atraya before nodding his head in a more affirmative action and he replied in a confident voice. “I will gladly take on the role of being a Caretaker in Training.”

        <Faolan> As plain as day, he was just a sittin’ there. Ain’t nothin’ gained in bein’ a creep nah. He’d also be pretty visibly pickin’ out a right stubborn bramble and promptly ‘plantin’ it somewhere outside his fur. Keen ears were trained on the proceedins if nothin’ more than to catch a snippet or two.

        * Shukie nodded to Kajika at his words, “You are WolfSpirit, and now known to all as WolfSpirit, Caretaker in Training.” she would be a hard task master from this point on to ensure the brute would come to learn of all the duties required of this rank. “If you should find, at any time, you are not suited for this position or no longer able to carry it on, speak up rather than keep it to yourself.” With a pause she fixed her gaze upon the assembled wolves, “I present to you, Kajika, Careatker in Training of WolfSpirits.” Her gaze fell upon Kajika once again, “You may now introduce yourself as WolfSpirits Caretaker in training.” With ath she would do that tap tap dance beside Atraya, a low toned howl would form and issue to the heavens and beyond.

        * Atraya upon Kajika’s approval of the role he was to be given, she smiled and gave a nod. When Shukie made it so, her paw came up to gently stomp on the stone beneath her and she let off a few barking chuffs for Kajika. She was glad to see where he’s come from and where he will go. She felt there was no one better suited then Kajika.

        * kamaitachi would let out a chuff. Ignoring the pain. She was happy for kajika and she could soon talk to him after the meeting.

        * Ayaka too would find Phoenix’s scent hovering nearby, and when she glanced in the direction it seemed to waft from she’d perhaps glimpse his frame a’pickin at a burr of some sort? He was a unique one to say the least, and she’d keep an ear on him now, though he seemed well mannered as far as she could tell as yet. Turning her hues back to Kajika she would wag at his opportunity, for it was a good one for the pack as well. Caretakers seemed to be in constant demand within the wolfspirits pack. We’re they just gluttons for punishment? She would chuff and yip/howl for the brute as he was promoted!

        * Kova ‘s eyes would befall Shukie and Kajika and when it was announced he was to take up a role as a Caretaker in training she couldn’t be happier. She let loose a few barking howls in return for Kajika advancement! When celebrations would simmer down her hues fell to Phoenix who would be watching from a distance. Herm. She nosed Ayaka lightly as if to point in said direction – a sharp eye no doubt kept on him. He seemed harmless and in all honesty, enjoyed the stories shared. Little tid bits of information could be gathered from him. Even if in some small measurement.

        * Darth would join the course howl in congratulating Kajika on a further promotion, he had been helped by the brute before, and would be in need of his help still. And he would take care of the role with excellence.

        * skydancer lifts her muzzle in a congratulatory howl and only afterward does she turn her head, if only briefly to make sure of the wandering brutes location before shifting her attention back to the meeting.

        * Shukie would take a half step back even as she gazed out, a gentle shoulder nudge to Atraya

        * Atraya when all the calls of joy would recede to the skies once more she would dip her head upwards to address the pack. She would allow Kajika to take his place once more among the fold. There was no particular place she ‘looked’ but simply ahead. Ahead is where they where going. “Ayaka… please come forward.”

        * Kwa`ani lifted her muzzle in congrat’s to Kajika, her tail wagging gently as the meeting continued leaning against her sister slightly just glad Fianna was beside her.

        * Kajika couldn’t hold back a smile even as he dipped his head out of respect in receiving the title. He could hear the seriousness in her tones when she addressed his desire to stay in the position and he would heed it should he feel he was not fit for it. He wouldn’t forget to mention the training part when introducing himself moving forward, but maybe that might spark up some conversation between him and whoever he was treating that might also branch off to other subjects. He glanced around for a moment and would take his place back amongst the rest of the pack, his tail flopping against the ground every few moments as he saw Ayaka replace him in the middle of the group.

        * Ayaka *replace* might not be quite correct, for Ayaka knew she could not fill the caretaker roll that Kajika now strove to learn and perfect, but as she did move forward she would stand on all fours just below Atraya and lift her muzzle to glance respectfully at the lead fae. “Yes Alphess?” She spoke to a sure Atraya that she had come forward, curious as to the reason.

        <Faolan> It was just as he thought before. Bête comme tout…dey a crazy bunch. He could see it was a happy occasion, but his wasn’t the place to add a tone to the chorus. Nah, he’d just settle for something particularly peculiar he’d picked up along the way. He’d stamp his paw on the snow-melt laden ground beneath him a few times like someone not quite havin’ picked up on the custom. Two left paws if you will…

        * Kwa`ani nudged her sister, “remember when we didn’t know what an assessment was and such and all the names we had for them and what it really meant to be pack… we’ve come a long ways, sister mine.”

        * kamaitachi nosed kajika as he padded past “I need your help after” she whispered before looking back and looking to ayaka now

        * Kova when all the howls and yips came to an end she would once more become that stoaic fae, ever observant. She tilted her nose to the side some as if to take yet another draught of air but her attention now withdrew from Kajika to Ayaka. She blinked and now, turned a curious gaze to her.

        * Atraya waited for Shukie to indicate to her that she had in fact come forward before she proceeded with equally as light tones, yet, there was weight behind them. If only to really convey the emotion of it. “Ayaka you have been a member of WolfSpirits for many many years and throughout your time here you’ve shown nothing but heart, loyalty, true courage and the spirit of one who not only see’s the well being of the pack of the utmost importance, but the well being of ones self. You have offered courage when there was none. You have offered insight when others had faltered to see any. You have wisdom and shared experiences that afford to you a position within the pack that is, and should be recognized beyond a huntress. You have been an active voice and comfort to all here. Ayaka…. this pack needs additional leadership and you’ve shown yourself worthy of such a potential role. Shukie and I would like to have the honor of offering you the position of Delta. To nuture potential leadership. This position is one of high importance and duty. It is to foster the knowledge and ways of leadership. To guide and uphold the ways in more depth then any other. It is to be the right paw of the Beta and Alpha when needed. I ask you now, Ayaka, do you accept this position?” little did Ayaka know that throughout her time in WolfSpirits, even holding a rank or not, she had forged herself into a strong wolf. Her adventures and pack activities had led her to this moment. Her character continues to develop but she had seen within her a great potential. Much as she see’s in Shukie. She would also allow pause for Shukie to add anything she desired to as well.

        * Kova could feel the strumming of her heart like the beating of a drum. She was proud. Her chest swelled outwards as her tail could not contain it’s simple yet happy wave. Her eyes often darted to Phoenix and perhaps she caught sight of his ‘paw stamping’. Something familiar to her. Now she had to fight the urge to talk with him, as she retreated her gaze from the story telling male to her sister,  Ayaka. This truly was a monumental moment for the pack.

        * Shukie again moved beside, only slightly back as she watched Ayaka be called forward, her tail swaying gently, outwardly no more so than normal. When the fae stood before them she simply nodded her head, her expression giving away nothing. After Atraya spoke, she would add her own words, “You took over for me so long ago for what was expected to be only a few days. You saw to the pack, stepped up to lead them while there was no one to lead. The path you walked was such that we found out Alphess and rescued her, almost entirely without input from me in the doing so. I have every faith in you that should you accept this most serious of positions that you shall fill it well.” she paused just a bit, “Should you accept, I shall guide you as needed and expect you to continue to act in my place or Atraya’s should we both be gone to take care of the pack and all it’s needs. Think long and hard and as with Kajika, should you find it does not suit you, speak up for your thoughts on a particular wolf’s rank may not be what is desired by said wolf.” her tones were serious, gentle yet punctuated.

        * Ayaka would feel surprise nearly gobsmack her for she hadn’t expected the position of Delta to be offered. She would listen closely to both Atraya and Shukie’s words of offering, closely inspecting her ideals, strengths, and weaknesses as she thought about the path before her. Lifting her head to meet Shukie’s gaze for a moment, then scanning Atraya’s frame she would lower her head in humility and respect. “I am honored by the offer, for I feel I have done no more than I should have. I will gladly accept the role you offer, and I will continue to do as I have done, and as always look for ways to grow. Shukie and Atraya you have long been friends and mentors to me, as well as my leaders, and I look forward to growing and learning even as I step up. ” The words were not adequate, she thought, to put into reality how she felt, yet she was honored all the same.

        * Atraya her tail brushed the air slowly before stilling. Words from the heart. That was all she needed to hear. There would be a final firm nod of her head and she rose a paw up “Then, let it be known from this day forward that you may introduce yourself as Ayaka, WolfSpirits Delta! May your path be true, and your spirit truerer.” her paw came down to stomp and she offered forth the winds yet another howl.

        * kamaitachi would let out a howl. She hasn’t gotten to know ayaka that well but she was the right wolf for the position. She let out a howl her tail thumping on the ground. Only after a while did she stop and curl het tail again around her paws.

        * Kova couldn’t contain the excitement for her sister Ayaka and her advancement! Her tail quickly waved behind her and her front paws came up and down as she ‘danced’ with glee to her new role. She let loose a howl as well.

        * Kajika couldn’t agree more with Shukie’s words. He had seen firsthand how Ayaka stepped forward and led the rest of them on their way here. She had kept them together as best as she could but more importantly moving and now seeing her fulfilling the role of Delta was a fitting title for the fae and he let his howl show how much he wanted to see her succeed in her new role as much as he hoped he would.

        * Shukie nodded in Atraya’s direction know the fae wouldnot see it and to Ayaka. “You take over a position I once held. There will be much responsiblity placed upon your shoulders, responsibliity I have every faith you shall excell in. I am here to help and guide during this time of transition.” With that her own front paws trampled the stone’s surface and would howl in joyful recognition of all the fae had done for the pack and would, no doubt, continue to do.

        * Darth would yip and bark as Ayaka was announced to be a Delta, he had talked to the fae on a number of occasions and knew that her leader skills were very well versed, and that she was a great choice for the position.


        * Ayaka would not partake in the howls now sung for her but would nod and bow respectfully to those before her as she thought on the path now set before her. Finally she would turn and take her place back beside Kova, curling her tail near her paws, and glancing down at the key that was there still. She would wait to bring it up, until the time was right. For now.sbe would lean to Nose Kova, her excitement showing some finally as she wagged furiously for a moment.

        <Faolan> A quick paw stamp as a matter a courtesy was given to another round a happy and well said notions. He had met a few a these fae’s before and so was not receiving any priveleged information or a free story for his presence. It was nice and all, ain’t no denying that, but he was more accutely aware a the scents that passed his way. Bit a blood; dried…old. Most a scent a wolf, but there was a faint scent a skin like vestige of those doux parfum…sickly sweet but fleeting. It was gone as it was there… Curious, cher

        * skydancer ears perk up at that promotion and though surprised by it she can understand why it was offered to ayaka.the fea had proven herself more then once. lifting her head along with the others she let’s her voice ring against the mountain.

        * Shukie would call Ayaka back and to take her place to her side beside the stone for as Delta this was her new place in meetings and such, beside herself and the alpha(s). She would await Atraya to continue the meeting once Ayaka took her rightful and earned place as a leader of the pack.

        * Kova swung her tail ever so softly behind her and nosed Ayaka. Thoughts of her own role in the pack seemingly washing across her features in thought but would be gone when Ayaka joined her. It was there again…. a tickle. She wiggled her nose this way and that to the smell of a wolf. It was Phoneix but then, not? Another drifted across her senses but before she could even discern who it was …it was gone.

        * Atraya when the calls of joy would settle she would dip her head once more to Ayaka, allowing her to take a position closer to the Beta and Alpha. There was much need for them now more then ever and as active as the pack has been, it would be fruitful. She cleared her throat all the while pushing past the occasional throb to her face with all the talking. “I would like to assign the roles now for the plan we discussed earlier. Ayaka… you will choose two wolves to accompany you back to the old territory. I would like a full report of what you find. All the details you can offer. Kajika… I wish you to choose either one or two other’s to join you to head north east. Report back of any food sources you may find. Down to the smallest mole.”

        * Ayaka would have just sat down when she would be called back to sit in a new position, one that she took with the seriousness which it deserved, and she would settle there, with the key, to watch the rest of the proceedings. When Atraya assigned her roles, she would nod, then speak her acceptance. “Of course Alphess.” The journey would likely be a quicker one than had their initial journey, yet all the same it would be a fairly long undertaking. She would do it gladly, as well for the chance to.see their old homeland once more before bidding it farewell.for a time.

        * Kajika toned down the excitement and celebrations to listen to Atraya’s instructions for him and Ayaka. Since he would only be taking one, maybe two, he would give a slight nod to her indicating that she could pick first, and probably the more able-bodied wolves among them if she could. He wouldn’t be hunting since his instructions were only to report back anything that he found, so he could possibly pick even an injured wolf and travel at a slower pace if need be. Really quickly he did just glance around to see who all was there and who was around the area if not here at this very moment.

        * Atraya wouldn’t be blind to the smell and scents thereon the wind. Her nose tipped up and Phoenix’s scent would be among them. She gave but a ‘tip’ of her nose in his direction and if he happened to catch sight, he would know that she was aware of his presence. Who, however, did -that- scent belong? It came and went like a fleeting fish from a diving Osprey. She flicked an ear once before turning ‘ahead’. She awaited them to choose their party members. She needed to know who was going and who stayed.

        * skydancer ears perk up so fast at the mention of not one but two scouting trips that she almost sprains something. both sounding good for their own reason. the chance to go back to see the packlands again perhapseven talk to her old friend or a trip into the unknown also very compelling.

        * Shukie nodded at Atraya’s selection of Ayaka to return for the fae knew the way and would have the quickest time of it. “Aya, I recommend not marking the main territory but looking it over, and only leaving very strong markers and paw scratchings and the like to guiede any that might come after your visit, especially should it be Faolan or Rook that returns that they can inf fact find us all easily.” she was ever hopefull the the duo’s return yet hope was all she had for now.

        * Shukie would again step forward, “I have a few things to pass on.” She would wait til she had everyone’s attention which would also afford the two tasked with duties to ponder who to select. She looked to Atraya then back to the pack. “Our alpha is without sight, something we all must strive to help her ‘see’ by being very articulate in any and everything until she comes into her own. She is now and still remains our only Alpha. When approaching speak don’t just nod, make your presence known. We are All her eyes now. Soon her other senses will grow stronger in compensation and we must do all we can to aid her during this time.” her tones carried the seriousness of what she now required. “It will take everyone time to adjust. Strangers are not to be afforded the knowledge of her blindness for that would be a weakness others see to challenge.”

        * Atraya an ear turned to Shukie’s added statement. There would be no emotional expression from her for it was all felt within. Like the stoking of a red hot fire, constantly lapping at her inner self, she would keep it at bay. Like a skilled blacksmith never letting the embers spell. No…she couldn’t. There would be a given nod and a tail wave of appreciation for the shared sentiment. “Thank you all for being patient.”she added, allowing Kajika and Ayaka more time.

        * kamaitachi looked to shukie and nodded. She would help her alpha anytime she needed it.

        * Shukie saw kamaitachi’s nod, ” kamaitachi, Atraya cannot see your nod, only I can. Soon tho, she will likely see much no of us can, an added strength.” And would await the fae to respond appropriately, otherwise she remained beside Atraya, “Want I should take one or two that remain and see about prey that might be lingering nearby?” She too had caught scent of the stranger she had not met, seeking his frame in the distance doubting he was visible now, but who knows. To Atraya, “I have yet to meet this ‘story teller, what of him. I recognize his scent. from the other day.”

        * kamaitachi looked to shukie “oops sorry, alpha atraya I will be your eyes whenever you need them.” This would take a little to get used to but it was already setting in

        <Faolan> Nah, that scent wasn’t anything he brought or recognized save for the familiarity of it to his own story. There was somethin’a human make beyond the hewn stone n’ that was a story he was ripe to hear. Best keep it together, cher. They keep on lookin’ dis way like I a hungry guest at a small dinner.

        * Ayaka would have lingered in her choice only because it was a long journey, and she would not want to have it stall, and would avoid what problems she could by being wise, now. Finally though she would rise and nod to Shukie. ” Good idea, thank you.” She offered, then, she would scan those around her, and her gaze found Kova. The recent bear fight had taken alot out of her spirit sister, and though the fae had been her first thought, she would perhaps hope to let any muscles or other things that may have been injured, have a little more time heal. “Darth and Kwa`ani will be my choice for the journey back.” She would offer. Then look to Kajika, “unless you have reasons for needing one of them with you?”
        * Atraya shifted her paws beneath her quietly before nodding to Shukie “That will work just as fine.” should Kajika and Ayaka find more suitable pairs to go on said adventures and tasks. She did think on Kajika and his ‘herb’ collection. No doubt a good idea to restock with even as little as he could physically carry back with. She nudged Shukie lightly when she asked of the male. “He is a wanderer of sorts. He requires a story for a story. The ones he’s given have offered insight and information… I think he might have an idea of where either Rook or maybe Faolan reside. I’m not sure just yet…” her tones low and a whisper. When Ayaka offered up to those she’d take, she dipped her head. She would await Kajika’s response in kind.

        * Kwa`ani had not spent much time with anyone over the last long while aside from blabber mouth. The term was now an affectionate one of respect and admiration for all the teaching given to her. She lowered her head at mention of her mum’s loss of sight then again lifted it almost right away. As Ayaka selected her to return she would respond, “Yes, My Delta. I would be glad to accompany you and help guide any straglers back.” SHe really hoped Ayaka didn’t fall off any cliffs into wild rapids and lose her memory too. “Just don’t go near any cliff edges. Please.” her tones were in jest yet serious too. “When would you like to head out?”

        * Kajika kept one ear on the conversation, nodding thoughtfully at their words of caution for keeping their secret… well a secret for a long as they could. As Ayaka selected the two that she would be traveling with, he made his selection on the basis that he would only be scouting and coming back, a much shorter distance but also one that he was not familar with. “And I will be taking Skydancer and Nightshade with me,” he stated. He would make brief eye contact with Sky to let her know that she would be going to be expanding their knowledge on the territory around them as it was while Ayaka and her group returned to the Pack’s previous territory. Even if it was one unbeknownst to them, he felt assured that together, they would navigate their way around safely and possibly discover a few things aside from the fauna that lived here. At Kwa`ani’s question of when they would be heading back, he would listen up to hear the response since he knew that some would likely need to get some rest before then.

        * Ayaka would answer her question, after she listened to Kajika to select his own group, nodding to Kwa`ani as she did so. “I would like a day or two to consider the best path back, as well perhaps to find something to eat before we go, as we don’t know what we will find along the way. We will look to depart the day after tomorrow if all goes well, if not, the following day.”

        * Kova would swing her tail when Ayaka looked upon her and when her name wasn’t called forth she simply gave a nod of understanding. Despite the desire and need to fulfill a part in all of this, she would know her own place within the pack and offered herself as such. Whatever any of them needed she would do and be there for. Seeing as her name was not called she heard “buzz”, well, more like heard it in her head. The scent nagged her. Nagged her something fierce to the point she could no longer ignore it. All the same as she couldn’t ignore a fly buzzing right in her ear drum. She politely and quietly excused herself from the gathered and would retreat just behind the ruins. The voices of the others in the meeting still carried to her off the stone walls so she didn’t miss the meeting or it’s importance. Quick where her paws as she aimed to close the distance between herself and Phoenix. A chuff was made to announce herself. “A nice spot to view, is it not?”

        * Atraya gave a nod to the pair “Your party has been chosen. If you change your mind, please let either I or Shukie know before you head out.” she said in lightened tones before addressing the rest of the pack. “Is there anything else anyone desires to bring up at this meeting before it is called?”

        * skydancer sits quietly then makes a soft noose agreement to sukies words. ‘no need to brandy it about.” she says though how such a thing can be hidden for very long is a mystery to her but maybe the beta has some ideas. as ayaka makes her choice her attention she is careful to maintain a calm appearance simply shifting her attention to kajika as he speaks up then dips her muzzle in quiet acceptance.

        * kamaitachi froze a moment “alpha, I’m nervous to say this, but I was hoping I would rank up with my brother. Is there anything I need to work on to become an assessment?” She would lower her frame in respect though she could not see her do so

        <Faolan> Bonjour, cher he called to Kova when she was near enough to hear it and for it not to be so much of a distraction to the other chatter. It’s a spot as any else. I see n hear a story; get a promise a few others. The plans a who stays and who goes was no matter to him. The players changed, but the story wound on. That said, he was happy for a spot a company I take it you and yo’ kin are stayin’ a spell? Fine enough, but the winters up here are somethin’ brutal.

        * Atraya ‘s face turned in the direction of a voice and question. An ear flicked to the sound of kamaitachi. “To become an assessment requires the presence of a pledge. Perhaps by the call of next meeting, I will scent you more among the gathered so that assessment can be acheived.” her tail remained still. There wasn’t more she could say on it. Those to whom placed well tracks among the pack and home would find their paths continue upon that trail to the pack as home.

        * Ayaka would pause, awaiting kamaitachi’s question to be answered before speaking up as well. “Alphess, beta. I still have the unused key we found within the caverns, do you have any instruction regarding it? Any idea what we should do with it?”

        * Atraya shifted her head to ‘look’ where Ayaka was. She hummmed quietly before looking ahead of her again. “I ask that you leave it here with Shukie. We will take care of it while you are away and perhaps even still, find it’s use.”

        * kamaitachi looked to her “I understand. I thought I was well know for going on this journey. I will try to make my presence known more” though how much more she didn’t know

        * Kova would give a quiet nod of her head to his words “We are. For a spell..” she turned to look from the gathered to Phoenix for a moment. What scents did he harbor? If any she would try and pick up on them before returning her gaze back to the gathered just a stones throw away. “I wonder how many stories we’ll get from all that is shared tonight?”

        * Darth ‘s heart would sink as he heard his sister would not be promoted, he whined a bit in sadness; and would approach to nuzzle her if she were to return.

        * Shukie spoke, she fell quiet after indicating she had nothing to add for the time being. At her sisters departure she whispered to Atraya, “Kova seems to be off about something. Perhaps, Phoenix?” At kamaitachi’s request her fur bristled to hear one request rank. She said nothing as Atraya addressed the fae, she herself have few insights or sights of the fae. “When the Alpha’s or I feel one is ready to advance we will make it known. This is a time to prove yourself of true desire to become a WolfSpirit other than for your brother’s sake.” To Atraya, a gentle nudge of her shoulder, “Prepare for what is to come, take nothing for granted, even the smallest thing might be what makes the difference. Let us close the meeting.” Awaiting Atraya’s final closing call.

        * Ayaka would dip her head to the answer from Atraya and took that moment to deposit the key at Shukie’s paws before returning to her own place beside the stone. She would await what any other’s had to say, all the while taking note of Kova as she moved off. Had she offended her sister in not choosing her? She worried some at that and would seek to speak with her soon.

        * Fianna would have been listening attentively to all that had been said and discussed, to the alotted roles, and as her sister was chosen for the journey back, she would nose Kwa`ani, sorry that the fae would leave her again do soon, yet such parting seemed to be fated for the pair. Still, she would do her best for the pack.while she remained behind. “I will keep a close watch over mama. And take care to be here for her.” She assured the fae as the meeting concluded.

        * Darth would, at the end of the meeting approach towards the new Delta Ayaka and chuff to her as he approached.


        * Atraya would brush her nose along Shukie’s fur ever so gently as she responded in kind to kamaitachi. She seemed to give kamaitachi a gentle nod in return before she looked out towards Ayaka and then the rest. She would gently stomp her paw “This concludes tonights meeting. We will have another soon. Please be ready for I will be calling on those who are to stay behind for various tasks.” she took into account the absence of another to talk to said wolf and gave no mention nor nod of it just yet. She simply took the observation as it was given.

        The wolves of WolfSpirits where held at another temporary stop, waiting in hope that the missing wolves of their beginning party would re-join them. Including the Beta. Darth and Nightshade finally rejoined the pack after a few days and now they aim to keep going. A new wolf, Okkezzon, had joined the group, a wandering male who was looking for a place to call home?
