for @Gracious perhaps? all welcome tho/keepin it vague for now!

from the sweep he returns, once again fruitful, once again not complaining. winter has been good to them thus far and delight is pleased to see tindome growing once again - he can only hope the trend will continue. as reluctant as he'd be to leave the forest part of him does still wonder if mato's right, if they should relocate once it's warmer... but he puts it out of his mind for now. there's still plenty for them here. they need to work to cultivate what they have - delight needs to put together the story of their founding and begin to share it. and... there's whatever thing is growing between him and mato, too. but he puts that out of his mind for now, too, and sighs, glancing over his shoulder as he steps back into tindómë's territory with an almost normal looking smile. "this is it."

Aha, thanks for starting, I'm going to wrap up our last thread C:

As she walked along with Delight, Gracious let her mind wander for the trip, often thinking about unusual things that made her wonder about the world she lived in. She would think of the stars up above, the little ants the crawled down below, the leaves that swayed in the sunlight- everything, basically. Perhaps she was getting a little too wrapped up in her own head, Gracious nearly lost her footing a couple of times due to some tree roots and her lack of paying attention. She chose to actually focus for the remainder of the trip.

When they reached what looked to be the forest, Gracious took in the sight, her mouth agape just by a bit in awe. She turned to look at Delight, returning his smile with her bright voice. "It's beautiful," she said in amazement, hardly able to wait to walk in.

no prob!

he's a bit cheered by how enamored she seems to be immediately. the tides have turned in their favor but delight still worries, still wonders if their new crop of núro will fade into the night like the old batch. part of him thinks, well - as long as he's got mato around it wouldn't be so bad, but - mato is tied to tindómë too, and the nénar wonders how quickly he'd lose the prince without a home to tether him to.

"it's special," the androgyne agrees readily, a rare smile brightening his face. "were you traveling alone for long?" he asks, tail swishing against his hocks as he takes her past the borders, deeper into the heart of the king elk's forest.

[size=11.6667px%%]If Gracious could read minds, she would have comforted the smaller man's worries about her willingness to be bound to this pack rather than leaving when she felt the need to. Gracious was a rather loyal being and she didn't intend on leaving her first official home in years anytime soon. She had just arrived, any ideas of leaving would most likely never come later. 

She kept pace with him as they crossed the border, hearing the question and attempting to think of an answer. Just exactly how long had she been a vagabond? It had to have been at least over a year or so, she was kicked out nearly before she was a yearling. She didn't want to dampen her mood when she thought of her past, so Gracious instead let her thoughts be pushed to the back of her head, for now, she could deal with her feelings later. "Perhaps 3 years if I'm correct." she said in a humorous tone, "I've been on my own for quite some time."

One could understand how desperate Gracious was for a home and thus why she was so excited to come back with Delight. It wasn't the resources that drew her in, but rather the opportunity to socialize with others. She had been so alone and almost afraid to talk to others, some she dared to exchange words with blatantly shot her down or even tried to attack her. Her luck had dried up in the wilds.  "I was... removed from my home right before I was a yearling, I've been on my own ever since,"  she said gently.[/size]

sorry for the long wait! i was in la over the weekend :p

three years is a long time to be alone, delight thinks. he'd been lucky, really lucky, that mato and brienne had found him so quickly. that fate had led him to their path, and maybe that's why it was okay for what happened to have happened. how much can happen in a single season, he thinks.

more surprising - or interesting - is gracious' admission that she left around the same age as delight. they really are funny mirrors of each other: androgynous in their own sex's way, light and dark, cast out as youths but on different paths. he makes a small noise in sympathy. "me too," delight tells her, "though i'd only been on my own for a season or so when mato - morwinyon - found me. that was before tindómë actually formed." and they haven't been formed that long, though it feels like an eternity to the nénar. perhaps thats why everything is still hard-fought and precarious. it takes time to get settled, right?
