the change came upon her swiftly at the change of the month, corrupting her in a volatile way. ah; she kissed rosalyn.
some time later, the obsidian emerged into the evening. the rush of saltwater filled her senses; the wind tempted her skin, already hot and intemperate beneath her cinnamon coat.
she had chosen; @Merlin perhaps knew it, but she sought him all the same, plume arched proudly as she wended through the oceanpine forest.

Merlin
Sapphique

Merlin had avoided to remain alone with Erzulie ever since their talk about a month ago. He had needed time to ruminate on all the "what"s, "why"s and "how"s and with no one really to talk about all this, without feeling utterly embarrassed, his anxiety increased. It was easier therefore to leave all these troubles behind and pretend that they did not exist. Because he would be none the wiser at the right time than before. 

However, Erzulie had been right about one thing - you could not explain everything in words. Some things had to be done and some... as he found out now, just needed to be felt for the first time to truly comprehend. He had been aware of the change in the atmosphere, it had made him both giddy in anticipation of something big and also a little nervous, because he had not yet put two and two together and figure out, what the sum actually meant.

But he was soon to find out, because the captain of that fateful ship was coming for him fast, while he was still clueless about the ensuing crash.

Erzulie
Sapphique
Obsidian*
the redfurred sapphiquian had studiously circumvented her path for a long while; it was part of why erzulie prowled so cunningly for him. she knew that men found her desirable out of season; within it the harlot gained a formidable knife's-point that she was happy to whet upon the man of her choosing.
and, as she had told merlin, this year that was him.
when his crimsondark pelt filled her gaze, the harlot grinned and stalked to circle him once, settling along his left flank with a sibilant growl crooning in her throat. "i not be forgettin'."
she suspected that too, this had not escaped his mind.

Merlin had entertained a small glimmer of hope that, when the right time came, all of his issues would suddenly disappear and he would emerge from the clouds, confident and knowing everything, showered in golden light and with choirs of angels singing high-praise for his divine being behind him. Quite a fantasy, eh? Who can blame him for being naive? 'cause all the dudes around him - those in old paintings, those in modern photo-shoots, those in novels and those in films - just had it all figured out (human references just to enhance the feeling of unworthiness Merlin felt). They did not look as if they had a single problem in their lives. They would know exactly, what to do and how to act, if a beautiful woman - all ripe and welcoming - sidled up to them and tried to seduce them. Compared to them he was a... a... him. Yup. Merlin could be a fine swearword for guys just like him. Anxious that they should please people, even at the cost of their dignity. If there was any to begin with. But that was a problem to deal with another day. 

"O... okay," he replied, looking straight ahead, as if one look directly at Erzulie would turn him into a stone.

Erzulie
Sapphique
Obsidian*
there was a resistance to him; it was not firm nor defined, but erzulie even in her heated malaise found herself drawing back somewhat, residing alongside him for a space of time. there was no desire in her to persuade an unwilling man; he was young and shy, and she knew her own power.
it was not necessary to draw him up to perform; erzulie was content to be silent for a time, warm alongside him and within her own flesh. "it be my time, but it does not need to be yours, merlin." voice warm; the harlot was used to seeking her own way, but some part of her wished this path to be toward him.
