    Aela -- Year 216


    "So she smiles prettily and steals away when she can. Feels the brutal pounding of others around her with a savagery that she has never comprehended—their emotions so vast, their hearts so wicked. It warps her more than she was already warped. It presses a thumbprint of cruelty into her darkness, shaping her into a thing of shadow, a thing of longing, a thing carved from the darkness between every breath." --Baptiste, written by Laura

    [open quest]  if you go down in the woods today...
    They make use of his generous gifts as he stares in awe of them all. All, of course, except for Gaspard. His carved grin becomes a deep frown as he dismisses the Loch Ness costumed boy with a sweep of his hand, returning him safely to wherever it is he calls home.

    The remaining eleven find themselves at the foot of the mountain or the mouth of the caves below. Jack resumes his smiling as the pitch-black night becomes illuminated by things in the distance. Various forms of fungi begin to glow when he claps his clawed hands together while scattered flowers do the same across the mountain. Mother Nature’s Clap On, he thinks with a high-pitched cackle.

    But perhaps the next leg of their journey is too peaceful. Mayhaps they need a little challenge to earn their place at the finish line. And so Jack plucks a delicate amethyst from a side table drawer, plus some ice cubes from his freezer. He carelessly tosses them into the potion with a plop. On cue, crystalline monsters pry themselves free of the cave walls and lurch dumbly in wandering paths. The snow on the mountain above begins to swirl and gather into bodies complete with heads and appendages. His monsters are impossibly beautiful in the gentle glow of the fungi and the flowers, he thinks. But they, too, are attracted to sound and they seem to be angered by it.

    The time has come to test your stealth,
    To make a dash and keep your health.
    Just stay alive and stay alert,
    Then find me in the red desert.

    Gaspard has received the Curse of the Brood Mother. He is now the host to all sorts of awful spiders, beetles, and larva that crawl in and out of his skin. Luckily, their saliva numbs his flesh to their biting, but it’s certainly nothing pretty to look at.
