::Shaking her head, Sereyne watched the magcial creatures path, her strange eyes tracking its essence. She hoped the others would keep their quiet til the creature passed.

After what seemed like forever, the entity passed them by, she took in a deep breath. They moved down the passage til she found an alcove where they could stop and converse quietly. Her eyes continued to scan the hallway, and she waited.. to find out what Ryndal was going to say.::

(I am a update.. yes.. yes I am... and now you all fling rocks at my head. >>;;  update incoming))


She took a short respite. Just enough time to calm her nerves,  mentally scold herself for her foolishness and out right stupidity -how could she have left ShiningEagle like that? Alone.. Without any form of protections...-  Jaggie shook her head clear, reapplying her invisibility enchantment, telling herself that she could undo all this and make things right by returning to their hidden refuge.  She took a quick surveillance of her near by surroundings.

Gray ancient rough cut walls that went up and up, fading into pitch blackness. Old crumbling cobblestones scattered the ground, covered in a thick layer of dust and riddled with crisscrossing devil tracks. Giant scripture and old runes traced the walls, still glowing with strong magices, while demonic sigils hissed and squirmed in their place upon the ground just waiting to be stepped on. Coloured rays of light spilled forth from breaks and cracks in the walls and Jaggie knew to fear letting this light touch flesh or cloth alike. She had learned this the hard way. One such beam had disenchanted all her spells and enchantments. . . it had killed the halfing that was running right besides her. . . his stone felt so cold in her vest pocket.

A shiver went down her spine. What was she doing here?

Still rather pressed firmly to the wall,  she tentatively pressed one hand onto the dust covered stone floor and leaned out to ensure that no other devils where coming or going in either direction. 'Rur?' She felt something cold and metallic brush against her index finger in the lose dirt. Alarmed, she pulled her hand back to her chest only then seeing the small yellow coin her hand had uncovered. Relatively smooth and showing hints of script similar to that of the demonic symbols on the ground, she picked it up and rotated it between her fingers.

The Coin Lords wanted something from this 'venture, this would have to do. She tucked it into her hip pocket.

Was then that she felt sharp claws grasp her by the scalp and send her airborne.

The creature, with his grotesque green scaled hide and scraggly beard, must have spotted her when she had picked up the coin she'd found. A coin floating in thin air and then vanishing inside an invisible pocket was pretty key to giving away her location.
"Raki!" it shrieked has it pounced onto the invisible intruder, grabbed it by its blonde purple streaked hair and sent it hurtling to the wall.

(Transcribed from a conversation between all three chars.. Posted by me because of some guild portal issues.)

Sereyne shook her head as she looked at Ryndal, and twisted her wrist as she muttered a few soft words. Blue and gold sparks flashed in her eyes as she erected a circular wall of silence that would mute their conversation outside its perimeter.

Mayzial watched the young human's manipulation of the magical energies with wonder, always amazed at the fluidity the wizard could change different spells for her own use, but she also noticed the small wince Sereyne made once the spell was complete, and the color bleed from her strange white eyes.

Sereyne nodded.. "W.w.w.w.w.we can s.s.s.speak now." Leveling her strange gaze at Ryndal.

He just shrugged, his face as usual impassive and emotionally cold. "You two" he nodded to Mayzial and Sereyne, "Have no business coming down here.. " Glancing over at Deriaz, he shrugged, "I have no knowledge of your abilities, but I know these two young ladies should not be here."

Mayzial bristled, and lost her usual shyness around Ryndal. "How dare you make that judgment.. look.. you followed us down here, should I make the same .. assumption about thee?" her rose colored eyes flashed with anger.

Sereyne leveled her gaze, and stared at Ryndal, her own features as unreadable as his. "I t.t.t.think you s.s.s.should reserve y.y.y.your judgement til you k.k.know the whole story. I a.a.a.agree that w.w.w.with Eildre g.g.g.gone you and S.s.s.syilva are in command of the Dawnswords.. b.b.b.but I have m.m.m.my own reasons." Before he could object she stated her reasons. A clinical precise plan for why and how she was going to accomplish the task of rescuing Shiningeagle and Jaggie. Continuing to list her detailed plane even when it looked like he was about to interrupt her.

Ryndal listened as Sereyen spoke, at each of her measures and counter measures she had taken, her preparations, her supply list, and her minute inspection and analysis of every aspect of their trip. Inwardly he winced, he knew she was a woman that dealt strictly in facts, in formula and ready power. But her clinical plan sent shivers down his spine, she made no allotment for dumb luck or pure chance, though she did cover contingency, she didnt realize how truly chaotic things could get in combat. But she wouldnt listen to him if he tried to explain why her plan might fail.

"Alright then, how do we proceed." Ryndal deciding right then and there that he had to join them, if only to protect his junior members from themselves. He looked once more at Deriaz, and nodded to himself. At least the warforged looked sturdy and sure of his skills.. only time would tell if they would survive all this.

Sereyne nodded as if his acquiescence was a forgone conclusion. "W.w.w.ww.e skit what encounters w.w.w.w.we can, and f.f.f.f.follow the path. I h.h.h.h.had a dim v.v.v.v.v.v.vision of what direction w.w.w.w.we need to go in from the link Shining and I s.s.s.ss..share, but .. I fear w.w.w.w.w.w.e have to f.f.f.f.find the landmarks I s.s.s.s.saw f.f.f.first. Skirt the magics and m.m.m.m.monsters we can.. I have s.s.s.shielded the three of us f.f.f.f.from most detections, I can do the same for you before we p.p.p.proceed. F.f.f.f.fight when we have to.. R.r.r.run if we m.m.m.m.ust.. But we m.m.m.m.must save them.. its for the g.g.g.g.ood of the D.d.d.d.dawnswords as well as the F.f.f.f.fellowship that we rescue them."

Ryndal nodded and waited patiently as Sereyne cast several spells on him, watching her carefully as a faint flash of red and gold in her eyes alerted him to the Presence that shared her mind sometimes. He invoked his own powers and once again reassured himself that the taint in her eyes was not an evil entity, still it worried him that she had no knowledge about what shared her body.

Sereyne finished her casting and the red color faded from her eyes leaving only the blue and gold specks dancing in the white depths. "I s.s.shall s.s.s.cout ahead, follow behind, if I s.s.s.stop.. stop.. once we l.l.l.leave the silence z.z.zone dont speak.. lets a.a.avoid what we can.." She stepped over the invisible border of the spell only she could see and motioned for them to follow.

As they all exited the zone.. they heard a strange shout echoing through the stone corridors.. in a harsh unidentifiable dialect. Sereyen stiffened as Mayzial glanced at the others in confusion. Ryndal went on guard, glancing to the warforged for a cue on how to compliment the metal warriors future actions. Sereyne frowned and glanced in the direction she thought she heard the voice from.. and started that way cautiously.:

". . . I have no knowledge of your abilities, but I know these two young ladies should not be here."

Deriaz had kept quiet, even though the group could now speak, until Ryndal had said that line. He opened his mouth to give a quick comment, but shut it and bowed his head slightly when Mayzial spoke up.

He flexed his left hand and his arm, watching the plating covering his livewood shift up and down as the livewood flexed. He felt slightly awkward standing there with the three talking; he couldn't tell if they were about to break into an argument or not.

"Alright then, how do we proceed?"

Deriaz looked at the group again, and brought himself back to attention. . . At least, standing straight and trying to look his most confident. He still remained silent as Sereyne stepped over the border. Easier for him, at least; he was already quiet. No extra work there. He followed the group, taking up the rear as they left the border.

When the unidentifiable shout echoed through off the walls, Deriaz fidgeted slightly. He took a heavy step forward, wanting to run towards it, but he quickly fought the instinct. He funneled it, instead, to unsheathing a sword and clenching his hand around it -- just in case, of course. The rest of him felt on edge with worry, his livewood strained in some places with it that made him look a little bulkier than usual. It passed quickly, and he continued following from behind, occassionally glancing over his shoulder to make sure nothing was following them.

(posted for Sereyne, since our page currently is the free one. it wont let her post tothe alliance shared open rp cause it says we are over our limit for some reason.. chuckles.)

Sereyne slowed her forward movement as her booted feet met with something slippery. She glanced down and frowned clinically, as she looked at the mass of intestines she had just stepped in. No sign of the body, just the slippery black brown remains of some creatures internal structure. No way to identify its origion, so she just shrugged and motioned for her companions to avoid the slippery mess, proceeding down the hallway towards the sounds of the shouting voice.

((Taking place during the end of both "be careful what you wish for" and "Breaking Points"))

Guild Hall

It was a late night and Jaggie sat quietly alone at the top of the staircase, dangling her feet through the railing. Lost in thought and idly tugging at one of the necklaces tied around her neck, she would occasionally look to her left to see if anyone might have been sneaking down the hallway of the barracks and making an attempt to startle her from behind.

 Nope. No one was there.  

She looked bored, tired, and most of all, lonely. She turned her attention to the tiny, purple sliver of a gem that her thick fingers had found. It was connected to her necklace of grey marble stones by a thin metal loop of silver and a small backing of wood. Her right eye glowed softly in the gem's reflection and she let herself drift away between the stone's fluorescent strands of pinks and blues. For all the troubles it seemed to cause her, it was a pretty shard.

For the most part it was nothing more then a worthless, chipped up piece of rock but occasionally, and rarely at that, it would pulsate, shimmer, and glow. This was one of those occasions, and in its dull light Jaggie slipped down into memory lane to a time of wood and steel. To a place of grit and thick yellow smoke that hung heavy in the air. A place filled with the continuous sound of shouts and whistles and hums of large foundry machines.

~~~
Seven Years Ago




"Unit Seven, go fitch Master Kenotto and have him come to examination room 1-6H. Unit Four and Eight, with me."
Without turning her head, Unit Eight, Jaggie, caught a curious glance from her forge brother Four, Kaolinite. His pale white eyes and tiny frame were so unlike her tall heavy build and bright yellow eyes. This was the first time they had seen each other since emerging out of the explosive wreckage of their creations pods, hardly a week ago. They where both still very young and only just learning their way around the foundry grounds. Soon they would undergo combat training though that was still several weeks to come.
 Of the ten surviving warforged of their creation pod, most of them had been kept together during the majority of the studies and tests performed on them. Only now and again would one or two of them be periodically called away for separate experimentations by Cannith artificers.
Jaggie thought nothing of it when one of their trainers entered the barracks and sent her and Unit Seven down to examination hall. She had already undergone a number of examinations by artificers who hoped to gain an understand of how her plating had developed a strange rough jagged texture- the reason and where her name had came about- during the creation process. These 'jaggy' edges were beginning to flake away now, revealing a smooth, rich, coppery colour to her plating.
 Other studies were also performed to try and figure out why these ten forged lacked the most common feature of every other known warforged. The ghular - the 'cosmetic' and unique mark that all warforged developed on their brow during creation. A mark that no two 'forged, supposedly, ever shared the same of.
No ghular, or mark of any kind, could be seen nor found on any of these ten warforged. Thus they became referred to as the Markless Units, each one given a number and identifiable by their model type, size and plating colour.
Jaggie, Unit Eight, was a custom designed infantry model, while her forge brother, Unit Four, who stood well near a foot shorter then her and whose faint flickering white eyes and white plating that wrapped around him like a poorly bandaged mummy was designed for quickness of foot and spell casting. A front line runner who's future training would lean towards providing medical aid to injured troops---

"Unit Eight? Markless Unit Eight, do you hear me or are we going to have to check your hearing for repairs again?!" Jaggie's attention snapped back to her trainer, realizing he and Unit Four were already walking far ahead of her.
"Hai. Command given. Follow." She moved forward, obediently following behind her forge brother and her trainer, though questioning in her mind why forge brother Four had not been checked on by an artificer to fix his continues head twitchings and slight spasms of his hands.

***

Master Kenotto entered through a side viewing room.  "You can begin when you are ready Pilat," his irritating voice wormed its way threw a speaking stone inbedded in the glass window that separated the examination room from the viewing room.
Jaggie watched Kenotto, a rather old human who kept his peppered beard very short and neatly trimmed, sit down to observe today's experiment before turning her attention back to her trainer.
 Pilat stood directly infront of Jaggie while Unit Four sat on the opposite side of the room. His eyes were covered by a odd looking helmet made of wires and glowing gems. Unit Seven waited by the door, arms to his sides standing perfectly at attention.
"Unit Eight," trainer Pilat said, placing several objects before the curious 'forged and allowed a moment for her to study each item. He then placed a blind over the items so that the only people that could see these items were himself, Kenotto and Jaggie. He bent down and adjusted the items into a random straight line. "You will look at each item in order. Is this understood?"
"Hai. Command given. Look at items in order." Jaggie nodded and looked down at the objects. A slap on the brow made her look up, stunned that her trainer had slapped her.
"Slowly."
Jaggie looked down at the objects again, 'slowly' looking at each one. A wooden block, a green apple, a dagger with a broken hilt - "Orange ball, silver key, linked chain, gold coin from 932 with two bite indents on its outer edg-"
"Enough Unit Four," the trainer ordered. The unit instantaneously stopped spewing out the list of items at the same time that Jaggie had stopped looking at them. Each item that Four has said was exactly in the order that Jaggie had seen them.
"Unit Eight is wondering how this experiment is working...." Four tilted his masked head at Jaggie, his voice becoming difficult to hear under the steady humming of the pulsating crystals of his helm.
Jaggie looked down at the objects infront of her then to her trainer. "Unit does not understand. Information required. Please provide command."
"Very good Unit Four." Pilat, ignoring Jaggie's request, lifted the blind and sent Unit Seven to remove the objects. "We will begin again. New items will be placed down, you will look at each item in its order. Do you understand Unit Eight?"
"Hai. Command given." Jaggie looked down at the new objects-
"wooden wand, three stones, spool of string, beaded necklace, leather strap.." she had hardly gotten a chance to even look at the items and already Unit Four was spewing them out like some kind of grocery list.
"Very good Unit Four."
Jaggie looked on in confusion, watching as the trainer ordered Seven to remove the current set objects and place new ones down.  "Unit does not under-under-stand," her head began to feel fuzzy with the buzzing sound in her ears. "Information required. Please provided co-co-co-"
"Unit Eight?" Jaggie could hear the trainer calling her name but couldn't respond.
"-co-co-co-co-"
"Unit Four, stand down!"
She could feel herself tilting to one side has gravity took over, sending her crashing to the ground. "-co-c-rur." She was looking at the ceiling but she swore she could see Unit Four, white eyes flickering under a swirl of dancing pulsating lights.
<Help....>
<..hurt.. out.>


Several minutes past before the pain subsided. Jaggie found herself curled up on her side, cradling her head and chest. Unit Four was spasming on the other side of the room with Unit Seven pinning down his legs and arms while their trainer was attempting to physically remove the crystal helmet from the warforged's head. Master Kenotto was no where to be found but the sound of a blaring alarm could be heard through the open door of the glass viewing room.

***
The following day, Jaggie and Unit Four where at it again. Pilat, sporting a bruised eye, stood infront of Jaggie holding out a dozen or more card stock pictograms for her to look at. Unit Four was strapped down to a chair with the same crystal helmet covering his eyes while Unit Seven stood directly behind him, ready to hold his forge brother down should another episode take place.
"Unit Four, you may begin."
"Unable."
"Unable? Explain," Pilat huffed in irritation, wanting nothing more then for today's experiment to be completed.
"Unable to establish link," Four twitched, the crystals of his helm barely glowing.
"Unit Eight, are you looking at the cards?"
"Hai. Following current command."
Jaggie felt her head jerk to the side. "Unit Eight is lying," Four's voice hummed as Jaggie felt the cold, hard stare of her trainers eyes looking down on her. "Connection established."
"Eight.... Look at the cards."
Her eyes flickered to the cards and then back at Four.
"Unit Four?"
"Unable," Fours voice popped and crackeled<*static*>
"Unit Eight, look at the cards."
"Hurt..." Jaggie whimpered, an expression she had never made before 'til yesterday when she had pulled herself off the ground. <..out>
"Look at the cards." Pilat's irrataion was turning into downright frustration.
"Hurt..." she shyed away, unable to look at her trainer, or the cards, or her forge brothers. <out....>
"Look at the C-!"

"Enough Pilat." Kenotto spoke threw the speaking stone. "Unit Eight, explain. What hurts?"
"Hurt..."  She reached up to touch her head and then her chest, her eyes tilting upward, trying to lock onto Unit Four.
"Pilat, shut off your machine and see to it that this unit is checked for damages."

***
Another day. Back in the same room with the exact same set up. This time however, Jaggie had a helmet that was similar to Unit Four's on her head. The flickering lights of the gemstones that covered her eyes bothered her as much has the constant buzzing and humming of the machinery within the helm.
"Look left. Now right. Left again. Up. Good. Test is ready to begin. Unit Eight, locate Unit Four in this room."
"Unable." She looked up, towards the location that she thought her trainer was speaking from. She had no idea where Four was located in this room. Perhaps if she took the helmet off... She considered this but came to a conclusion that this was not the solution Pilat wanted. .
"Try again. Unit Four, establish link."
"Unable..." <*static.*>
"Try again."
Both Jaggie and her forge brothers head twitched at the same time. Four's helmet automatically lit up though Jaggie's helm only flickered then went out again.
"Unit Eight, locate Unit Four in this room."
"Unable."
Sighing, "Unit Four, locate Unit Eight."
"Unable." Unable, unable, unable. Nothing was going to work in Pilat's favor.

"Fifth lvl trainer, Pilat, you've wasted three days of perfectly good training time on these warforged and worse off, wasted three days of my time. Either prove to me that these warforged have some sort of 'special' telepathic link, or- "
"Hold on sir." Pilat fidgeted with Jaggies helmet. "Try again. Unit Eight, locate Unit Four."
Her eyes flickered under the helm. "Unit Four intends to cause permeant damage to this Unit. Please provide alternative command." She would not let her brother gain entrance, no matter how much pressure she could feel from Four pounding on her mind. Something was hurting in her chest though. Like something that had been broken and then left to heal incorrectly.
"Bloody Flame... What is wrong with this unit?" Pilat kicked her, distracting her from holding up her presses protective mental wall.
A sound came from Unit Four like a snarl has he found her weak spot and drove a nail threw it. Blackness then reigned surpreme. Her memories became a flood of noise and heat. Jagged things and shattered glass. She was having a nightmare and she twitched and flailed-

~~~

"Jaggie! Jaggie wake up!"
She felt herself being shaken.
"Jaggie... hellooooo? Wakey wakey."
"Huh?" Her hand jerked "Hi... sorry. Must have been dreaming. I..." she looked down in shock, seeing the empty socket of her necklace. "My stone, my gem. Where is it?!" Panic took over as she fled down the steps and scored the whole bottom floor for her lost soul gem. For all the trouble it seemed to cause her, she refused to let it go so simply.

((See Breaking Points: Aftermath for story related to how Jaggie and Lilly became two separate beings.))

Not One, Not Two: Not the same


~'How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find out there was someone that was just like you out there? That there was someone exactly just like you.  Who spoke like you, behaved like you, dressed like you. Who likes all the same things you do. Who knows all the same people you do. Who has the exact same memories that you do.
How would you respond when you find out that they are you? How would you react should they claim everything that had anything to do with your 'shared' life and refuse you rights to any of it?

I would think you'd be mad. I was.
I would think you'd fight them to at least get something back. I did.
Wunder if you'd do any better then me.

Turns out my other me is stronger, faster, colder. What ever happened to the reforged I once was?'~




Lilly's eyes where red and her shoulder bruised. The bruise and a pinching pain along her spine was the price she paid when she confronted Jaggie and demanded that the 'forged share their duties and give Lilly a right to some aspect of their shared life.
A blunt answer of "no" proved not to be good enough for Lilly and she pushed the issue farther.
"What do I have to do, fight you for it?"
"Yes," was her answer before being slammed against the office wall.
Lilly, stunned and gasping for breath, laid on the floor in shock as Jaggie reached down and pulled her up to eye level. Clamping one metal hand over the Lilly's mouth so that she couldn't cast any spells or scream, the warforged growled, " I don't care who or what you are. I don't care if Shiney says you are me. I. Don't. Care. You don't belong here. You're not me and you have no right to say you are. Get out of here. Get out of my life and be glad I don't have you shipped off to the Twelve to have them figure out what in bloody Kyhber you are by chopping you up into tinny little pieces. Got that?"
Jaggie shoved her back down onto the floor and turned around to walk back over to her desk. "Take what ever cloths you want upstairs and get out," she pulled her chair up and began working again, completely ignoring her flesh'forged copy.
Lilly had fled the room, bolted upstairs and began hastily stuffing clothing and other belonging into a duffle bag. Tears ran down her face as she turned to leave her old bedroom. Near the door she saw the old baffled up lute that Deriaz had given them. It had been destroyed and remade more times then she could count. The designs and itching in it's face hardly visible, the strings long since snapped off, the neck warped and the tuners all but lost. Without thinking she grabbed that too and ran downstairs and threw the back door.


That night Lilly spent it getting drunk and retuning 'their' old lute and singing songs to the patrons of the Phoenix tavern. She flirted with Jeatra and drank a substance so potent that had it not been watered down she thought it might burn out her throat, most literally. She pushed the days events to the farthest pit in her mind and cringed when something was said that brought it back up again. She ached to be in Deriaz's arms again, hurt to see her brother Blindshot limping, grew mad and snapped at her brother Voulge and then embarrassed has he hid behind a pillar. She didn't feel like she belonged in this place and Jaggie's words echoed in her mind. The lute in her hands didn't feel like it belonged there and she handed it to Jeatra. "Please, give this to Jaggie... It's her's anyway." She staggered out the door and stumbled away to what ever place her feet would take her.

Not One, Not Two: Not the same... But Not Different

~How would you feel if you found out there was someone out there that was just like you? Acts, looks, is just like you.  How would you feel? Please tell me. I'm so confused. Frustrated.

How would you feel if they demanded that you share your life with them? Share all your friends, memories, likes, dislikes.

I don't think you would feel very good about it either. . .

I think you would feel mad too. Angry.

I think you would fight to keep what you have, just like I did. Maybe even more.~

Jaggie felt horrible for how she responded to Lilly's demands, but there was just so much on her mind. She didn't have time to deal with the silly girl and just wanted her out of the way. To many other things on her mind. To many.

Deriaz was still missing. Perhaps it was time to give up on him she thought. But how could she do that? She clung to his memory like a drowning man would a piece of floating wreckage. It was all she had left. Just like this Hall, this office was all she had left. How could she give up on it all?

She stared down at the pile of files and papers that cluttered her desk. How could she give up on all of this? There was bills that had to be paid, peoples reports that had to be filed, things to repair, coin lords meetings, dragonmark house representatives to see. Shiney's report on Latania's current condition still had to be read. Still getting more news from people that had been returning after the harbor murder incident. So much. To much. Yet she couldn't give up any of it. This was a part of her life now.

She did miss the tavern nights though... Been so long ago it seemed since she went out to enjoy herself. But things felt so strange for her, agoraphobic. She had spent a year in the skin of flesh. She met new people in that time. Most didn't know her has a 'forged but has the shape and name that was Lilly now. Being 'forged again had changed her, left her feeling insecure. Lonely. Setting in this lonely office didn't help, but it was what she knew. It was safe and it was a part of her life.

*Pages in a book*
I don't make the rules, I just follow them... Because it makes you angry.

Not One, Not Two: Make me Different

When you let your feet do the guiding they always seem to take you some place familiar. Lilly had walked all the way out to the Bugbear Inn, way out past the back gates of House Phiarlan. She had spent a lot of time in the Bugbear Inn. Playing songs. Telling and learning of stories of other adventurers that came threw these parts. She'd spent a lot of time just wandering the Tangleroot gorge, making friends with the hobgoblins that called this land home. Many a night she had spent here, looking up into the night sky and gathering the soft pink lilies that grew along the sheer cliff face of the gorge. Much like how the Cerulean Hills was once home to her, so was this place.

Night fell quickly and she prepared a small fire. Looking up at the stars in the night sky and idly picking away at the petals of a flower she slowly sobered from her earlier drinking binge with Jeatra. Has her head cleared she brought herself to thinking about her life and how it had transpired for the past many weeks. Nothing about it made her happy. She patted her pocket and again not happy with the number of coins she could feel there. She wasn't happy about a lot of things and so she tried to think of ways to change this. What did she want to do? What could she do to make it any better? Every thought however became muddled and disturbed by recent events. There was nothing she could think of that her other self, her warforged self, wouldn't have already taken from her. That morning she had learned and seen with her own eyes what she truly was. No matter how much dedication she had put into following the ways of a reforged, Jaggie was still a creature of metal, wood and stone. It didn't matter that she- no, they - had been a creature of flesh for over a year. Jaggie was still a warforged. Jaggie would always be a warforged and if Lilly continued to keep thinking the way she did, she too would be just like her. Just another warforged.
Lilly closed her eyes and began to hum an old song she had long ago forgotten while she thought of the one thing her sister could never have.

By the time he came out to find her it was well past midnight. Shiningeagle, now barring the form of an elf, surprisingly didn't require much time at all to explain what had become of him. Like Jaggie, Lilly accepted him for who he was simply by looking into his mithrel coloured eyes and finding the friend that laid inside. For a time they talked and spoke of how life had taken strange twists for the both of them. Wither these twists where bad neither one of them could truly say for at least living was better then the alternative. They'd just have to keep going to see where these twists and turns in their paths would take them. It was this time and threw this conversation that Lilly finally made her request.

"I wish to be human."
