naturalist trade thread! referencing the sleeping dragon erupting last week, I'm assuming over the past week the ash and soot would have made its way over by now. For anyone who wants to talk about the weird weather/aftermath of the BWP

Grey white flecks had started appearing mere days ago accompanied by a hazy smog. During the start of the fall, it had confused the general, but now it covered the floor like snow and the picture had become much more clear. She had seen ash like this once before, granted it was a long time ago. A volcano must exist somewhere nearby, perhaps that would finally give an answer to the tremors they had felt over the past weeks.

The firey girl had never seen one up close, but she had heard tales of how they shook the ground before spewing ash and a hot liquid. Luckily for them, the threats that often came with a volcano seemed to be nowhere near them, but the aftermath was proving troublesome. Her pelt was stained with ashen streaks and most of their prey had run off. If this mess wasn't cleared up winter would be rough.

24°, currently it is raining soot and set during the afternoon. Located in Haunted Woods, cardinal grove | ooc notes: this thread was lonely! and i just placed them in the grove if thats okay!!??

Like snow the ash gently floated down from above, covering the ground and plants with grey soot that poofed when touched, leaving behind the behemoth a trail of prints in the ground. Along his back, a cape of light grey covered his coat from muzzle to tail, clinging to his body slowly gathering as time ticked on. 

Into the clearing, his gaze fell onto the russet female that he took as his General, Alison. Without breaking his stride, he walked up to her, as calmly as ever. I haven't seen such an event before, have you? Wanting to know what the hell was going on if they should move so soon after they had claimed these lands only a couple of moons ago, he turned to the General as perhaps she had seen such an event before. It wasn't like he knew who to turn to, and so, it was a shot in the dark.

Is relocation something we should think of? And there it was, with those words, he frowned. Brows knitting together as he hated the thought of moving already.

She knew of the Warlord's approach far before he reached her. The beast never was one for stealth, and even if he tried the stench still gave away his location. She did not dare look back at him, instead, her gaze remained on the downfall of grey that clouded the sky. Once. It's ash.

To be truthful she had never seen it fall, only the piles that remained long after what must have been a disaster elsewhere. As far as she knew, relocation was not necessary now. I believe we are fine. If it was an issue we needed to move for, surely we would have seen the destruction by now. The ground had slowed its quakes and nothing else seemed to come of the tremors aside from the scarce prey. No mountain crumbled, nor fire raged. Things were silent. Perhaps in that sense, the ash was almost peaceful, like snow in the light of the dawn of a new day.

Vanity had seen destruction time and time again. But raining ash? Nah. She thought it was black snow.
So she tried to eat it.
Nuh uh. She coughed and spluttered as the patch she'd snapped up came flying out of her mouth again in a haggard shudder and splutter. Seh licked her fur where ash hadn't settled on her to ge tit off her tongue.
Icky. She needed water.

She moved on, happening upon Venny and Alison in her passage.
"It isn't snow, I tell you." 
She grinned, shaking her fur so that a soft plume rose from her. The trees seemed to do a good job of sheltering them from most of the volcanic dust, but it only would until the winds blew.
"Where is it from?"

Ash? Well, that was something he did know about, though it wasn't something he expected to see in the shape and form it was coming in - raining from the skies like snow in the dead of winter. I've never seen ash fall from the sky before. 

The following words were what he truly wanted to hear. There was no need to relocate or cause a stir within the pack just yet - Alison had no cause for alarm, and so why should he? A third member walked in, Vanity who came to investigate the happenings too. 

It's ash, falling like snow. He repeated Alison's explanation as to what it is. I don't know. I want to know where, and how far its reach is. This way we can plan an emergency protocol if necessary.

The general's eyes flicked to Vanity as she approached. Luckily she did not have to repeat her previous explanation as Vengeance quickly filled her in. I can't say how far the ash stretches, but it seems we aren't experiencing anything that would prove dangerous. It might be quite the journey to find the source. I mean she was no expert, but she didn't see hot liquid running their way. Perhaps they were just out of the reach of real danger while the aftermath spread to all reaches of the land.

She didn't have much interest in going on a long trek to find something so trivial.
She'd leave it be and is anything came to harm her, then she'd have to take action. But Alison was reassured enough they were out of real danger, so that was good enough.
"Good to hear."

Furthermore, they were together. Alison claimed to definitely not have an interest in Venny, and they were of the highest teir so it was natural for them to consult one another. But still. 
Vanity can only hope and dream of fanatical love stories.
Nonetheless, she grinned at them.
If Alison had anything to say about it, then she could, but she'd have to catch up with her already dispersing form.
