SKY FELL IN [ Fell ] :: 09.01.2011 [ buck ]

Resigned. Marked by bones and a day's clouded end, he is almost nihilistic, and spends a lot of his time moping around, wasting all that good sense and perceptiveness he was otherwise born with - which is why you shouldn't leave him to his own devices. He makes a terrible leader, but a top-rate follower - being prone to devotion, once a Kimeti's got hold of his mind, he'll fulfil anything asked of him, even if it is (and he knows it is and complains endlessly that it is) madness. Fortunately, thanks to the good sense and perceptiveness that he'll now apply under leadership, having been inducted by the indomitable The Sun Also Rises to 'co-found' the foodstuff empire Rise & Co., he usually manages to find the least hot-sharp-deathy way to get it done.

...Of course, there's still the little problem of being deathly in love with a boss who has since lifemated with the doe of his dreams, but at least he also really enjoys babysitting.

MOONFROST-LIKE-ASHES [ Grey ] :: 11.01.2011 [ sac . foal . filly . doe ]

Grey doesn't care about you. But don't take it personally. Grey doesn't care about anybody. Grey only cares about scienceTM - or more specifically, the movement of the moon and its influence on the swamp's tidal patterns. Her intense interest has nothing to do at all with the fact that the distant orb has haunted her since her naming dream, and she certainly does not spend a good portion of her nightly observation just staring at it. Grey is excellent at never admitting anything she doesn't want to admit.

Due to her specialised interests, her hours are nocturnal: she rarely ever meets another kimeti, and she's more than happy to keep it that way - being ridiculously exact and demanding, interacting with other kimeti less unreasonably focused in their intentions exasperates her. She prefers to keep things as they were in the first vision of her hitherto punctilious life - just her, silence, the cold, and the moon, in a boundless vista of unending grey.

...Yeah, this is all totally never going to come back and bite her in the ass.

BLOODY CAT ( The Bloody Cat | That Bloody Cat | You Bloody Cat | Bloody | Cat ) [ 03.11.2011 ]
Cue brought the angriest owlcat in the world back to Rise and Co.'s from the infamous Haunted Cave one October night, and Rise, finding it rather too difficult to turn it into food and noting its coat colour beside, decided to gift it to his lovely lifemate, Grey. Anyone who has ever tried to keep a very angry feral cat as a pet will know what a wonderful idea this is. It now terrorises the shop constantly...which is probably why, despite a marked disinterest in the very concept of pet ownership, Grey is not entirely fussed about letting it remain in her name...

Saddened Eyes

SADDENED EYES [ Weep ] :: 26.02.2011 [ doe ]

She is quiet - very quiet, almost never speaking unless she is spoken to, and has a tendency to watch apart, her eyes glowing unearthily in her dark face, when others gather. Due to her unnerving behaviour - and perhaps her slightly eldritch appearance - it is easy for most to assume that she's...emo strange. Touched. Weird. Do not let your children near. In truth, she isn't even merely shy. Weep just believes in an economy of words and actions, comfortable with leaving well alone and being left alone unless necessity dictates. This is probably because she has her hands full with keeping her sister, the unreasonably idealistic campaign-enthusiast, Summer Fades, out of trouble when the latter is on one of her endlessly varied crusades for does' rights, or workers' rights, or whatever is the socialist flavour of the week. If you cared to speak to her first, you would likely find an insightful, acerbic mind that's perfectly willing to entertain your views if you're not an idiot.

Dark is a Way
« Reply #4 on: May 21, 2019, 01:02:48 PM »

DARK IS A WAY [ Dark ] :: 13.03.2011 [ doe ]

Dark is on a lonely journey. In many ways, her naming dream says it all. As a grown doe, she seems fearless, a competent and intrepid traveler, often striking out under the cover of darkness to explore territories afar. Underneath that forbidding facade, however, she yearns for nothing more than the days she spent inseparable from her beloved brother, Light is a Place. Born as one, the twins eked out their early existence together, and where Dark's lead placed them in the path of danger, Light's calm head would ensure their extrication from it - it was perhaps inevitable that she would come to quietly idolise him as an infallible solace. But as they grew, it was evident their paths should diverge - and despite her unhappiness, she strove to prove her independence...for Light was just the sort who would sacrifice his own full life to ensure hers, and, that, she certainly loved him too much for. To keep herself from being, well, clingy, she travels often into distant territories, and enjoys the splendour of unfamiliar sights - but what she treasures most are the moments upon her return, where the twins will always meet to speak as one again. In the meantime she spends her days being socially awkward, oddly naive, wholly unimaginative, and talking to herself a lot. When the Great Flood came, she struck out in terror to find him, but though she helped rescue many, her brother was not among them. The Sun Also Rises of the infamous Rise & Co. found her in her nihilistic grief, and gave her employment and purpose. Over time, she slowly learnt to separate her core of loss from her daily content, and now finds solace in her traveling job and occasional visits with the various children she eventually bore.

A LONG WAY ( Far | Cat ) [ 08.05.2011 ]
A stunning, cunning, feline felon. Prior to Far's litter, the only kimeti known to have befriended a cheetah was Motes-in-Moonlight, prompting the kiokote Windjammer to approach him with two cubs for those deemed worthy. That did not quite happen in Far's case. Attracted in the middle of the night by the scent of ocean fish from Dark's journey back from the sea, he broke from camp, stole the first, tricked for the second, and begged for the last. Dark is a soft touch. She spent some time locating Far's owners, but was allowed to keep him; the naming went thus: "You're a long way from home. A long way. That sounds like my name. My name is Dark is a Way, by the way. Maybe I'll call you A Long Way." *everything in a 10-mile radius dies of boredom* She usually just calls him cat. Against all odds, he is quickly maturing into an excellent and dependable companion, most suitable for stealth and subterfuge.

All I See
« Reply #5 on: May 21, 2019, 01:03:33 PM »

ALL I SEE [ See ] :: 04.04.2011 [ doe ]

Every inch a lady to her cold stone heart. Immaculately elegant, perfectly polished from pink-tip-to-toe, two tight roses in her flaxen curls just so. Soft-sweet, that bit shy, a pale blush on her cheeks - the blushing bride, the rose bride, the winter bride, the strangling vine. Not so much immoral as perfectly amoral, a beautiful parasite - for 'all I see' is 'me'. If there is something of yours she wants, she will run with you - if you would have her, of course, for there is only so much she can do, dependent on the kindness of strangers, and you are so kind? When that of yours she wants is hers, or if she simply loses interest in the hunt, she will leave - broken or not, she opines, is up to you. Unless she deigns so, you will never see her again.

A femme fatale is not without her own strange honour - but if she feels, she will never show it; if she loved you, you will never know it.

FIRST BLUSH ( Blush ) [ 16.06.2011 ]
The sweetest little snake, See's unmitigated darling. A gift of sorts from a buck she won't forget, the gentlest soul, Thoushalt. Not that she is normally one to trifle with such irrationalities, but Thou's strange ability to speak with animals has left her wary of distressing the innocent creature with her less savoury activities - just in case the snake might understand every word, she takes care to conceal the worst of her heartlessness...one might argue that in itself would disprove heartlessness, but she is not one to trifle with such irrationalities. Blush remains ever loving.

My Trouble
« Reply #6 on: May 21, 2019, 01:07:37 PM »

MY TROUBLE [ Vexed ] :: 07.04.2011 [ doe ]

Vexed is vexed - who'd da thunk. Bright and quick with a sweet, lilting voice; an excellent hunter. Her speciality is birds: a stone carefully lined up on the ground, a canny flick of a hoof - a wing curtailed mid-flight, and she can pluck one bare under three minutes, to boot. A little shy, maybe, but not too shy - and nothing an earnest gift of a special feather can't fix. There would really be nothing wrong with this little doe at all - if not for the crippling OCD that governs her life. Intent scrubbing to ensure her mostly-white coat stays pristine; intent scrubbing to make sure the stones she chooses for the hunt are spotless. Precise number of steps to any destination; precise number (and type, and size, and shade, etc.) of birds to obtain. Plucking must be performed symmetrically, center to outer-most, infallibly. These are just a selection of the many different ways in which everything must be just so - or she would surely go mad.

She suspects she is already mad. She knows there is something utterly destructive about her desperate compulsions, and strives to quell them, but - oh, how much, how much can she do? She tries her best to channel the worst of her condition towards the one obsession hobby dictated before her birth by her naming dream: the collection of feathers, impeccably sorted, labelled, and preserved. It is not enough, and secretly, hardly admitted even to herself, she prays that someday, someone - someone who can - will come along and ease her trouble.

Such a Kin has not quite yet emerged, but in the meantime her myriad progeny, whether by blood or circumstance, have both soothed her agony somewhat and inflamed new avenues of agony - are they all alright what if something happens to them aaaaahhhh -

Anyway, you can find her and the family at the Feather Tree - a massive tree covered by endless feathers from her hunts tied to its sheltering branches they make their home.

Be Mine - she was barely full-grown herself when she found the lost little filly in the Great Flood, but ever since then the ill-fated doe has been a daughter to her

You Come Around
« Reply #7 on: May 21, 2019, 01:07:53 PM »

YOU COME AROUND [ Guest ] :: 29.05.2011 [ doe ]

Guest is the summer of her discontent. A delicate elfin beauty, soft-voiced and light-footed - but always with the tension right beneath her skin, a desperation keening to claw out; an endless summer, that begins in splendour and drags on into oppression, a "sky that refuses to die." You might meet her in some sunwashed glade, her hair spun sunlight. She will be quiet, but she will be friendly, she will inquire after you in the softest of voices; if you hit it off, she might even press up against you as the light fades. But her eyes will always be distant.

There is something missing. She never quite fits in. Even to look upon her - perhaps it is hard to look away, but perhaps it also hurts to look at all. She is discreetly sharp under her softness - intuitive and quick-witted, though she does not care to turn that wit upon anyone - but she is trapped within her suffocating sense of longing...for what? She does not yet know.

Until then, she drifts from buck to buck to fill the emptiness inside her, yearning to discover her desire.

Somewhere along the way, their paths crossed; Sky never really left, and neither has Guest. She may fly long days without returning, but wherever Guest drifts, Sky will eventually return to perch upon her back again, winging gracefully down from a sky that refuses to die.

LEAVES-THE-SEA [ Stream ] :: 08.06.2011 [ doe ]

Half of a happy whole. Str'y/m was born into a large clutch, and Str'm/y knows Str'y/m is not the most distinctive - especially not next to the sister/brother who is so striking/lovely; but Str'm/y also knows that Str'y/m is special, because Str'm/y is never alone.

Free-spirited twins: cheerfully afflicted with a terrible wanderlust, they wander the landscape, delighting in the varied sights they see; quite, quite normal - except they think that they are not two, but one. They don't think of themselves as two different kimeti, but as one kimeti handily residing in two different forms (sometimes it is easier to reach a cluster of berries in the centre of a bush when you are smaller and slimmer and can reach a little farther; sometimes it is easier to push an inconvenient rock aside when you are just that bit stronger and sturdier). Doesn't everyone have more than one 'me' inside? Doesn't everyone argue with themselves sometimes? The only difference, after all, is that they do it out loud. They travel ceaselessly, living easily off the land and oohing-and-aahing over the wonders they see; they are not often seen, always on the move, always searching for those strange little places others aren't even sure exist, or would want to venture even if they knew they did, always travelling at whatever odd times they feel like for the day. When they go through areas they know they are likely to meet other kimeti, they tend to split up, knowing that when others see them together they are always addressed as two, and that annoys them beyond belief. Apart, they speak just as they do together, freely and melodically, believing their counterpart speaks with them also. When asked for their name, they introduce themselves homonymically - "My name is Leaves-the/to-Sea/See," the free-flowing trip of syllables eliding the barest difference. Often when those who have met them alone converse to each other after, confusion occurs:

"I met Leaves-t'-See today, and he said -"
"He? I met Leaves-t'-Sea today too, and she's a doe!"
"What?! No! He was definitely a buck!"

And so on. By the time someone figures out there were two of them, they have already moved on to their next destination.

When they are together, their private names are Stray and Stream, but they pronounce it so - Str'y, Str'm, the tail barely distinct (a chirp cut short, one inflected upwards and the other downwards at the end). They trade fond jibes, they wonder, they laugh. When they run together, they run in tandem, side-by-side, that if you see them from a distance, you would blink and think one a shadow of the other. If one chances to properly meet them together and have them speak, they would speak as one - you would hear their voices perfectly harmonised, good-humoured and light and perhaps prone to lyrical hyperbole, but almost eerie in the exact duplication of each other's words. This happens so rarely, few have realised there are twins. They themselves have not yet realised.

TIME AFTER TIME [ Rewind ] :: 15.06.2011 [ doe ]

Born with total recall, Rewind can remember every single thing she's ever seen or heard. Unfortunately, with so many memories stored in her mind, she finds it hard to retrieve the appropriate one at any one time. Ask her for information in a crisis situation and...uh, let's just say it's always better to run first, ask later. Odds are she'll eventually figure it out, but no one wants to wait around that long with a croc bearing down on you; maybe you can come back later.

Aside from that crucial flaw, Rewind is a natural scholar grateful for her eidetic memory, extremely intelligent and not a little pedantic - a good number of her sentences in familiar company start with a patient and earnest, "did you know?" In fact, forget about the croc, just start running from her if you don't want to be stuck there bored to death by endless circumlocution about some random factoid. Not that she won't stop if you ask her to - oh no, she will cease post-haste, a little flustered, and certainly apologise. Unfailingly polite and well-meaning, she may perhaps begin a little reserved, but will become friendly soon enough if you approach. While she exudes a certain harmlessness, she is actually well capable of defending herself in times of danger - if only her insatiable love of knowledge didn't render her so easily distractable, the same distractability that usually leads her into said danger in the first place. Perhaps if Rewind had grown up with proper familial influence, she might not be so useless at taking care of herself, but she really has very little idea of where her family is. She has a vague impression that there were many of them, and then there weren't - she has dated the period in which her sac was laid to just before the Great Flood, so perhaps they were all washed their separate ways by the waters.

Due to her brain automatically trying to store every piece of information that comes her way, she is prone to sensory overload, succumbing to incapacitating headaches when that happens; but she's okay now - ow, ah ah - no, she's okay now, really.

STEALJAW [ 16.06.2011 ]
Rewind isn't sure where the eaglehound came from - for as long as she can remember (and she is relatively sure she can remember everything almost from the moment she'd spilled from her sac) he has been at her side. She also remembers a distant voice from before she could see calling him Stealjaw, hence his name ever since. It is a very good thing that Rewind has the customarily-silent, strong, competent Stealjaw herding her out of trouble at every possible opportunity, or...well! On his part, sometimes Stealjaw can barely believe how difficult his owner can be to keep alive - but he is superbly protective of the doe he would give his life for.

RED-STAINED BLOSSOM [ Rouge ] :: 09.08.2011 [ cert . doe . sand dog . mare-dog . dog-mare . mare . mantis ]

Rouge is an artist. Statement? Kill! She bursts into the swamp, all swagger and verve, sand dog bounding eagerly in her wake; males should romance her, she informs, but with females, she prefers to do the romancing - oh, that's not what you're after? Then let her tell you about her work instead, the one thing she loves even more (of course, next to her darling puppy - who's a good puppy? That's right!): you see, she was born with a dream - well, they all were, but her dream revealed her passion. She's a hunter, but not just any hunter - she is an artist. Loping far, far out, the thrill of the run; finally - a hare - her dog pounces, shakes it limp, flings it into the air. She springs - slices it open with her sharp little hooves, arcing a bloody ballet across the desert sands with one leap, then another, turn, kick, spiral aaaand stop - ta-dah! Piece number 137: Impression of dunes, with three stars above; red on tan. At the end of a day's hunt, she delights in cracking open a cactus and wiping her limbs clean of the stains before taking a big bite of juicy pulp; blood does flavour a cactus so well, and red blossoms so beautifully into pink across the flesh...pink is such a lovely colour, don't you think? That was back in the desert, of course; now that she's here in the swamp, she can't wait to get started - after all, she's been dying for a new canvas.

Is she capricious? Certainly. Is she shallow? Probably. Is she psychotic? Maaaaybe a little. But she is also good-natured, warm-spirited, and when it comes down to the line, can really fluff yo sheet up. A terrible enemy to make, but a fine fun friend. Perhaps more notably to the Swamp at large, though, is that after a couple of 'accident's, Rouge has started up her Puppy Breeding Kennels, and has added 'puppy breeder and force-gifter' to her secondary job description - oh, wait, make that 'puppy breeder, force-gifter, and doggie circus trainer', now that she works for The Royal Rainbow Troupe as well!

...And then, one day, she woke up new.

Legendary Blessing Style... As the loving breeder of sand dogs and other goggie-like creatures, Rouge can well understand an expecting parent's desire for many healthy, happy, blessed children! And as a parent as well, of course, uh, yeah. Rouge is always happy to bless, whether in Acha form, goggie form, with or without her pack, whether or not you'd like it - uh, that is to say, extremely flexible!

KISSES [ 09.08.2011 ]
Kisses came with Rouge from the desert - Mummy's best widdle puppy: a girl's best friend - loving, loyal, happy, eager, and a competent, vicious killer.

Offspring ::
x Awed and Inspired [ Inspired by a Kiss :: Cuddles | Sunshine | Wanders with Roots ]
x Baby [ Baby Kisses :: Anklebiter | Bear | Ambush ]
x Sandflea [ Flea-s Kiss :: Horizon | Sweetheart | Anyways ]

SUNSHINE [ 10.10.2011 ]
Sunshine is Kisses' red-drenched daughter! Who doesn't actually like blood very much...but is slowly getting better at handling the hunting under Kisses' stern tutelage. Rouge doesn't mind, she's such a lovey wovey widdle dear~ She may look aloof, but she's really just shy.

Origin :: Awed and Inspired x Kisses [ Inspired by a Kiss :: Cuddles | Sunshine | Wanders with Roots ]

Offspring ::
x Shade [ Shadeshine :: Apparition | Thunderstorm | Ribcage ]
x Companion [ Fairweather Friends :: Perfect Star | Call on You | Headrush ]

RIBCAGE [ 16.12.2011 ]
How did Sunshine manage to get knocked up by a see-through dog?! Rouge has never found an answer to this question. The result was a normal sandpuppy, a see-through sandpuppy ("that looks exactly like a ghostie Kisses eeeee!" ) and a spectral pup, and through coincidence or design, she has kept the last. Named Ribcage ("because it doesn't seem to have one. |: " ), it is somewhat long-suffering but very, very loving, in a quiet sort of way. It is an excellent hunter, thus Kisses approves of this grandchild. It is probably a boy, but Rouge isn't really sure ("because it's SEE-THROUGH" ), but it is certainly a "very good dog."

Origin :: Sunshine x Shade [ Shadeshine :: Apparition | Thunderstorm | Ribcage ]

Offspring ::
x Rainbow [ Rainbow Ribs :: Sugar Skull | Spectre | Thunderings ]

SWEETHEART [ 24.02.2012 ]
Rouge knew she wanted to breed Kisses with Catching Fire's beautiful Sandflea - but she didn't count on having her heart stolen by this ghostly little dog! She chalks it down to the breeding potential in the purity of its colour...but, honestly, it's just an absolute Sweetheart, and, unlike Sunshine, much more efferverscent and happy with the hunt.

Origin :: Sandflea x Kisses [ Flea-s Kiss :: Horizon | Sweetheart | Anyways ]

SO SOFT [ 23.05.2012 ]
Alright, so So Soft isn't really a dog, but it's close enough - and it is so soft isn't that right Mummy's widdle Snuggums, widdle Snuggum-wuggums~

Origin :: Nautilus x Water Hunter [ Hunter of Naut :: Still Silent | So Soft | Spice ]

SILKY [ 03.12.2013 ]
You'd think that Rouge's pack is way big enough, but apparently it is never big enough when it comes to puppies as pretty as Silky.

CUE QUEUE [ Cue ] :: 30.08.2011 [ cert . doe . owlcat . mare-cat . cat-mare . marewasp ]

The poison archer. Cue specialises in nasty surprises. In a hazy maze of mangroves and brush, half-swamp, half-land, all dark, the three siblings, Red Ring of Death, Cue Queue, and Cry More, meet for war games. When they run together, they are Cue Death Cry. Would you like to...play?

Poison, traps, and silent devastation: if Cue is on the job, it all goes black. Death would never admit it, but inside he knows - he may be the leader, but Cue is the end. She is her own; the brothers never know where she goes when she doesn't appear, only that she comes back ever stronger. They are her closest, she feels nothing for them; she feels nothing for anyone. She is neither good nor bad, she is indifferent; she is fair, if an eye for an eye is fair. She is a shot in the dark. She knows she has far to go; she knows she will get there.

...Or so she'd fancied. The truth, she has come to realise, is that she and her brothers were brats born into privilege, with nothing to want for, indulging in pretensions of the elegance that is cruelty. She has looked into the dark, and acknowledged she would never be fully of it. She has looked back at her kin, and acknowledged that they will always be at the back of her mind. She has taken another at her side, and acknowledged she will never truly run alone. She'd never admit all this out loud, of course, but at least she's acknowledged it inside. That's a step, now.

...And then there were many more steps. The fool's errand she'd embarked with Once Forgotten upon, to find the Kiokote half-breed's glowing Kimeti father, has made her question much, but also taught her much. None more, however, than when she fell into slumber one day...and woke anew. She speaks little of that Dream, but she was unmade and remade, always a Hunter be, who knows too the place of the Hunted. For it is always a cycle, and there is always a balance. An eye for an eye; if you seek blessings, be prepared to answer 'why'. And if your answer proves lacking...well, Cue herself undertook a journey once, or twice.

Or at least watch out for that squishy little owlcat 'cause once a contrary self-entitled brat, always a contrary self-entitled brat, it bites.

Legendary Blessing Style... Cue is not nice, she is fair. A Hunter invested in the cycle, the balance, an eye for an eye. If you seek, she will ask 'why'; if your answer lacks, there may be tasks. May also stealth-bless at her own discretion.

BONDS ::
Red Ring of Death - still, the spoilt despot is a good leader
Cry More - now her eyes are open they are closer than ever
Once Forgotten - no chance, no way, I won't say it... I mean, they're lifemated now

TWICE REMOVED ( Twice ) [ 07.01.2012 ]
It was big. It was loud. It was tethered to a tree by a loose loop of vine. It was angry. It was just. The cutest damn thing she had ever seen. It may have been Rise's insidious intention to repay the favour and spark her maternal instincts by getting her a pet, but no matter how hard she tried, she could not leave it behind.

CRY MORE [ Cry ] :: 30.08.2011 [ buck ]

The battle cleric. Dispassionate, intellectual, calculating. In a hazy maze of mangroves and brush, half-swamp, half-land, all dark, the three siblings, Red Ring of Death, Cue Queue, and Cry More, meet for war games. When they run together, they are Cue Death Cry. Would you like to...play?

His left eye is his weakness, his blind side; the other looks upon all with the same detached gaze - save his brother and leader, Death: for him, he is his faithful right hand, his proconsul. His numbing poultices, reviving potions, healing herbs, all are at the disposal of the buck who slowed a hoof as a colt for him to catch up in his early adjustment. An enemy that Death can dispatch with his swift mercilessness is an enemy he merely observes - he plans tactics, calling directions from a distance - when he must strike, it is skill over strength. Keenly observant, his senses honed in compensation for his flaw; in the dark he holds sway. His words are spare, thoughts guarded; he has some regard for his kin, but in his heart there is only one. Perhaps not even love, but absolutism; perhaps it is not really a heart.

Of the three, he was the first to realise that war games over time turn to training, the first to realise certain skills from this training turn...advantageous. Their abilities are offered to the highest bidder.

LONESOME FOR NO ONE [ Lone ] :: 20.09.2011 [ doe ]

Faster than fashion.  Passive attraction, programmed reaction; action distraction, more information. Consummate, knowing. Cynical, cutting. Poisonous. There is nothing you could possibly teach her - but you may stay. Just for now.

She haunts the high life, the contests, the theatre. She favours Mirebeat and Walks-Between's libations. She prefers the choicest offerings - how she attains them is never quite specified. When intoxicated, she is prone to exquisite violence...but it takes a lot to intoxicate her.

For a kimeti who is lonesome for no one, she makes her way through an unusually high volume of lovers.

FLICKERING :: 14.10.2011 [ sac . foal . colt . buck ]

A liminal soul. Much like his mother - except he failed to inherit her sense of self. A recluse, he wavers in and out of being on the edges of society. At times he doubts his own existence - but who does not? So often alone, he rarely speaks, but when engaged, he may occasionally lapse into poeticism, neither intended nor especially desired. Prone to existentialist ruminations. As it turns out, while his sense of liminality may partially be attributed to his naming dream experience, it can be more practically blamed on his extreme myopia, which may or may not be connected to the brilliant blue of his eyes, a colour inherited from neither parent. When everything you can see flickers in and out of solidity, when your own reflection in a pool is a blurry darkness, it doesn't take much to make the leap to 'was it a vision, or a waking dream?'

He never seeks companionship, but neither does he turn it away. At heart a gentleman, he blankets all with a distant courtesy that borders on chivalry with those of the fairer sex. Friendly, of course, but his mind always seems elsewhere, lost with the blue that can never fix upon your face. When he falls, it matters not whether doe or buck 'cause they all look like blobby bits to him anyway. Lately he has unconsciously come to favour serendipitous midnight meetings with bucks able to commiserate with or willing to indulge his penchant for philosophical explorations on topics such as ceasing upon the midnight with no pain. This probably means that either his reclusion will slowly ebb to the point where he will actually be grateful for that Romantic poet sort of semi-intellectual relationship, or that he'll die of tuberculosis.
