the title came from GoT I was trying to come up a title and this line came up lol

The pups were still in the Spiderlings' Glen now as their mother was away. It was the safest place for him to protect her children, and he roomed outdoors when the weathers suited outdoor living. The man bothered them little — he was no father, not after what happened to his son. He was simply a protector. He fed them and kept them warm and safe.

But there was one other thing he could do for them, and that was train them to fight. His nose pushed through the lichens and moss to glare over the pups tucked within. @Kotake was gone, presumably somewhere off in the Woods, exploring. @Ganondorf was sleeping, his body widely splayed through the den. That left @Vaati, the platinum and sand pup who he knew little of. His parentage, like the rest, was a mystery to him, but that did not dissaude him from waking the pup, intent on sparring with him in the Glen.

mind if we present date this? :D

        He does not know his Uncle, either of them. They have shown very little interest in becoming a person of value to him, emotionally; however, he recognizes the value of having the two on his side, politically. They have significant sway on what goes on within the dark woods, and Vaati must utilize it for all its worth. If he wishes to solidify his claim to Blackfeather Woods over others, connections must be made, bridges built. He must garner trust, trust that he will not return, but trust nonetheless; Clavicus's personal Web of Lies. It is the very reason that draws him to rise in the presence of his uncle as the intruding nose barges its way into his consious. With a bit of a stretch, he drags himself out of slumber to face the executioner, a resolute glare settled on his eyes.

*great/grand uncle?? Miraak is Potema's uncle. Once you get above one level you're done omg. And yeah, sure! Go ahead!

The boy shifts, and that is enough for him. His head ducks away from Potema's domain, knowing how protective women were of their children, even when they were as old as Potema's brood. He waits for the child out in the Glen, watching the steady trickle of the small waterfall as time passes. When the boy comes out, he turns to him, and gestures for him. Follow me, He commands, before ascending the slopes and heading off to the nearest clearing.

LMAO true xD

        The man beckons him to follow, leading him towards a desitination that is unknown to him. It is not so much as to where they are going that sparks his curiosity, but why. "Why?" He asks in a way that reveals he did not expect the man to tell, and he does not expect him to answer. Miraak is strange to him, but Vaati knows he is a powerhouse of experiance and education; it only boosts his spirit that the man had chosen him to call upon.

He is not followed blindly. The young boy calls after him, his voice impertinent in its childlike way. Miraak turns but for a moment. You'll see, He responses simply, continuing on his path. The boy would learn what Miraak had intended soon enough and not before. Surprise was a large part of the old man's training regiments. There was little certainty in life, and he made sure that his students learned that before they set out into the world rather than after.

        Silently, he follows; content with the two-worded answer he recieves. Miraak is correct, he does not follow blindly. He walks alone, or he follows with caution. The judgement of others is not one he relies on, for it is the idea that he must survive on the decision of another that pushes him away from doing so. Mistrust or simple self-preservation... even Vaati himself does not know. He follows this time with a trusting caution, ears flickering ever so often, alert at the highest degree. What exactly he is being cautious of, is left to his imagination.

He takes them to the open field of the Redgrove, far from Meldresi's skull, but still within the red leaves and flowers. He trots fast as they approach, losing Vaati as soon as he can. He'll double back and try to surprise the boy if he isn't already aware of his plot.

        The slayer walks faster, suspiciously faster, seemingly attempting to shake Vaati from his trail. But Vaati is no fool to follow blindly when such suspicions arise; he slows to a stop as Miraak vanishes under the cover of the dark forest. But the feeling of eyes upon him does not sate, even as his presence stands alone. The entirety of his body tenses, ears twitching ever so often as they seek out any audible sign that his uncle lurks nearby. It is a challenge, one he is ready to take on, one that he excells in. The snap of branches and crunch of depris under the paws of another circling by, the movement of the wind pushing forth the familiar scent is a dead giveaway, but exactly what his uncle plans to do remains unknown. Pivoting to face where he believes Miraak lurks, his hackles raise, stance ready for what the man has in store.

Vaati is no fool, and Miraak is glad for that. He notes the boy's suspicion with approval as he stalks through the blood stained leaves, his awareness heightened. Miraak can already feel his eyes trained on him as he moves, eventually stopping. Miraak doesn't move, keeping his breathing low as he watches, waiting for the boy.

        After little while does he believe Miraak to have stopped, and so does he turn once more, facing the shadows of which he believes his uncle hides behind. And then he charges, pumping his legs through the underbrush to meet impactful contact with the man. There is no plan amongst his attack, only instinct, and he lashes out at whatever he can grasp in his claws.

Miraak is surprised that Vaati locates him so quickly, but even so the boy's attack has no thought or planning, and Miraak can exploit it. He moves as quickly as he can at the last second, leaving a paw out to trip his great-nephew's wanton attack.

        His attempt is easily thwarted with a well placed flick from Miraak, sending the boy staggering to the side. Vaati is not a fighter, not yet. He does not know where to place his feet, where to move, where to hit. Growling in distaste at his own uncoordination, he glares at the man within the shadows. "Teach me!" Clavicus demands with a certian aggression that he did not intend, instantly reminding him of Kahlil's mannerisims. But Vaati is not a monster, but dedicated to train with a severity Kahlil is not associated with, in his mind. Vaati is not a child desperate to live up to the expectations of others, he will make them. Standing back, he awaits the reaction of he other.

He hears a snarl from his great-nephew, but it is directed towards the boy himself rather than Miraak. He does nothing but back away, dodging the tirade. He snorts in amusement at his roar of annoyance. I am teaching you, He smirks briefly before lunging at the boy again, aiming to pin the child down underneath him.

        The boy, despite his rather impressive stature, has no idea what to do with himself as he flails relentlessly against the efforts of Miraak. He has the brawn, the size, the components to be great in the art of defensive and offensive fighting but he knows nothing of how to coordinate himself. Vaati narrows his eyes, knowing quite well the lesson his uncle is intent on teaching. "You are making a fool of me!" He roars in return, struggling under the weight of the man. It is not that he cannot physically push him off, but the older man is more crafty than that and pins him in a way he cannot escape without instruction.

Vaati struggles under him, reminding him of how Astrid and Atshen had once done the same. He barks out a laugh, letting the boy wriggle for a moment before moving. Miraak's teeth went to Vaati's neck, gently biting there, gripping the body part for a moment before releasing, his breath still close as he whispered. A dead fool, then. He rises, though still keeping his body over Vaati, shaking out his pelt. I should have started you earlier. He clicks his tongue, reprimanding himself. I'd figure you would come seek me out like Ganon did, He pointedly slips the younger brother's name in there, knowing the conflict between the boys. He figured that Vaati's hatred for Ganon would push him to train harder and reach Ganondorf's level sooner.

        Miraak continues to taunt him, biting into his own rivalries and fears. It is a tactic Vaati should have expected from the elder, but it causes his hackles to raise none the less; his threat of his own weaknesses were his weakness, and he did not like others making it apparent to him. "I am not my brother, I did not share his interests," It was well and good that Ganondorf had chosen to do so long before him, he did not care. What sent a snarl through his maw was the assumption that because he had not, Vaati was in some way, lesser than his younger, smaller, feeble minded brother. Evidently incorrect of course, but nonetheless irritating. He did not appreciate the feeling of having to justify himself in front of his current tormentor; he did not like having to explain himself at all.

The tactic worked to some degree, but not enough to truly enrage the boy to the level of inspiration Miraak had wished. Perhaps before the arrival of Kahlil and Neo, but now, he had learned the game and the game was now his bitch. "But now I do, are you going to train me or continue to compare me to him?" He spits out the demand with a violent declension on the mention of his brother, more insulted that the elder should spend his time talking about that incestual idiot than focus on training Vaati himself.
