    COTY

    Assailant -- Year 226

    QOTY

    "But the dream, the echo, slips from him as quickly as he had found it and as consciousness comes to him (a slap and not the gentle waves of oceanic tides), it dissolves entirely. His muscles relax as the cold claims him again, as the numbness sets in, and when his grey eyes open, there’s nothing but the faint after burn of a dream often trod and never remembered." --Brigade, written by Laura

    He takes a few steps forward, the sensation of clouds underfoot familiar and calming. Turning his head, he watches Demi alight on the clouds. The left corner of his mouth tilts up in amusement at the precautious flapping of her wings, though he smooths it away long before it is apparent. Ruhr does not wish her to think he’s laughing. The movement sends the clouds rolling away from her, like waves emanating out from her pale shape, and this time when he smiles it is with appropriate and genuine appreciation.

    It is difficult for him to read the expression on the beaked hippogriff face, but the pegasus approaches without hesitation once she is settled, moving forward with the barest of limps on the cloudfloor until they’re near enough to speak.

    Well, until he is near enough anyway. How far away can she speak from, he wonders. Could her ability be as limitless as the Moon’s?

    The voice with which she speaks has the same bright enthusiasm he recognizes, though he cannot help but glance once more at the hippogriff’s wickedly hooked beak and the stern expression that it - she - seems to wear.

    It is with no small relief that he nods affirmation to her question.

    “Yes,” he replies aloud, “The clouds are as substantial as the earth. You can get through them if you want, if you work at it, but never by accident or by misstep.”
