Winter’s Veil 2

Theronil Whitemorn double-checked the crib once more.  In truth, it was more than a double-check.  It was more like his 100th-check.  Isandri was due any day now, and he wanted everything to be perfect for the baby.  He knew the crib had been joined perfectly, but checking made him feel like he wasn’t missing a small flaw somewhere.

In preparing for his son or daughter’s arrival, he’d almost forgotten about Winter’s Veil.  It wasn’t until he went out to get food to bring back to Isandri and saw the decorations that he remembered.  Finding the time to shop for gifts had proved difficult, as he was too busy making sure everything was perfect for the baby’s arrival.  He had no idea what to get Isandri this year either.  It was while he was putting up a shelf in the baby’s room that he remembered the books he used to have as a child.  They came in a set, but were all about different things.  One was about a boy who got a tree for his birthday.  Another was about twins who always did things different.  He couldn’t remember the rest, or even the titles.  He checked at the library, and one of the people there was able to tell him the name of the set, but they didn’t have any copies there.  He checked in the lower city and found nothing there as well.  He then started writing to bookshops in Silvermoon, asking if they had the set there.  Slowly, the replies came back.  None of them had it.  One of them mentioned they hadn’t seen that set for decades.  Theronil thought it was possible he wouldn’t find the books.  He bought a beautiful shawl with intricately woven designs of leaves and flowers on it for Isandri.  She would like that, even though he still hoped to find the books.

Theronil had almost given up when he got a letter from a bookshop in a town in Eversong.  They had the set!  It was old, but the books were mostly in good condition, with the exception of one that had lost its cover.  The shop offered to re-bind it for him.  Theronil had quickly wrote back and arranged to pick up the set.

He smiled to himself as he checked the crib over once more.  Hopefully she would like both the books and the shawl.

Aranae Lightmist sat on the stairs at the Peak of Serenity watching the monks train below.  She knew what time of the year it was.  The pandaren seemed to pick up on the holiday fast and had erected a tree inside one of the buildings.  She could do without the reminders.

Of course she hadn’t heard from -them-.  She didn’t want to, and the more she knew they weren’t even trying, the less she wanted to do with them.  They could all stay in Silvermoon and pamper their favorites this year without her in the way.

She hadn’t seen Tsi Ku since coming back, and often wondered where she could be.  The guy with the cat hadn’t been around either, but there was one person she knew here.  Unfortunately, he was the one who couldn’t take a hint.  Even when she specified for him to get lost, Cadellus still didn’t get it.  He’d better not be planning to get her anything for Winter’s Veil.  She wouldn’t accept it if he did.  It was tempting to go somewhere else just to get away from him.  She smiled to herself.  Maybe it would be best to visit one of the towns for the rest of the holidays.

Rohau felt the wind lift up under his wings as he circled the valley below.  He carried a small burlap sack in his talons, though it was small enough that it did not impede his flight.  He watched carefully as he passed over the trees below.  He let out a quick caw when he finally saw the smaller white bird hidden in the branches of one of the trees.  The other bird looked up, and watched as Rohau landed on the branch next to him.  The other bird started preening as Rohau pulled the burlap bag up on the wide branch.  This one was always preening.  Rohau stuck his head in the bag and pulled out a box with his beak.  He placed it on the limb and pushed it towards the white bird.  The white bird pushed a different package towards Rohau.  Of course he had gotten a gift too.  Rohau carefully pulled the wrapping off, letting the colorful paper drop to the earth below, as the other bird did the same with his present.  Using both his talons and beak, he opened the box.  Inside, was a small jar of perfume.  Using one of his talons, he pressed the top and sprayed just a little bit onto the other talon. He smelled it and cawed happily.  The other bird also cawed happily as he pulled a beaded necklace out of his gift box.  Rohau helped him put it over his head, certain that it would stay in place around the other bird while in flight.  They both cawed happily as they took off with their presents in opposite directions.

Orledin looked up at the sky.  It was still dark.  Not even a hint of light at the horizon told him he still had plenty of time before another day of work started.  He looked down at the small piece of birch wood in his hands.  It was beginning to take shape.  It was a hobby he took up a few years ago.  It was something to do while the world slept.  Most of his projects he had just left wherever he had finished them, none of them meaning that much to him.  However, this one he was doing as a gift, as a way to say thank you to one of the few people who had not judged him for being what he was.  He was pretty sure the captain would like the gift as he resumed whittling the details into the cat-shaped piece of wood.

I apologize for the lack of stories lately.  I got hit with a nasty cold earlier this week, and the best I’ve been able to do is log in and hit random buttons for combat.  Thinking isn’t really needed for that, right?  Anyway, to make up for the lack of stories, here’s some screenshots.  Luckily, the cold is clearing up, so I should be able to write something soon!

Muffins sleeps next to Sanimir.  Yeah, he's totally just sleeping.  Totally didn't die because I was too sick to move out of that thing.

I took Isturon into LFR and found someone with almost the exact same tmog.  She had the belt.  He has better boots.  They had different weapons too, but same shoulders, robes, hat and gloves.

Burd gets picked up by a bird.  Geez, that looks like it has to hurt.

Tik got some playtime this week.  He may get the achievement on all the rares before my characters on more populated realms.  Luckily, it only takes a few to kill them, and they stay up a lot longer on his realm.  I've been having fun with him on the Timeless Isle, and he was my first character to get anything off of Ordos, a 359 belt.  Unfortunately, gems are so expensive on his realm, he'll never be able to gem it.  Maybe if they ever get virtual realms running for it!

I also sent Tik on a mission to get some matching gear.  I figured quests would be my best bet because drops are unreliable.  Tik is now the proud owner of a riverboat.

I’ve also been trying out flex raiding on my horde lock through Open Raid.  It’s been really fun, and I’ve learned a lot that I can take with Vin when she does normal modes, and with Jaeyn for our flex group.  Here’s a few screenshots of the second wing:

Okay, this is NOT of the second wing, but it leads into one.  This is something that you can see happening in Orgrimmar now.

And from the raid instance, it looks like they didn't surrender quietly.

Alt Appreciation – Druid Week

Yes, another week with no shortage of screenshots and stories!  Continuing with Alt Appreciation weeks from World of Lae, we’re now in Druid Week.  I have six druids over level 80, and about a million under level 10.  Trust me, the hunter/mage problem is worse.

My first druid was Terivanis.  He was originally called Jaevan on a regular PVE realm, but when I transferred him to Wyrmrest Accord for RP, I thought he needed a different name instead of just being a variant on my hunter’s name.  I play him primarily as resto, and he is the only druid I finished the epic flight form quest on.  It’s out of the game now, or I’d do it on others.  He’s level 90, and I occasionally take him into ToT LFR.  Teri has been part of the rp, and has stories on this site.  He’s a grumpy old burd, who is a little less grumpy now.

Terivanis has a tauren friend in his story, a druid named Rohau.  He exists in-game, and has become my banker horde side.  He’s level 83, just gaining a level a couple of days ago.  Go cow!

Rohau is resto too.

Relanos and Farahlor are the babies.  They aren’t actually role played because IC they’re too young.  I created them just to keep their names from being used.  I wound up leveling them.  Farahlor is feral spec and level 82.  Relanos is guardian and level 85.

Then there’s Jaellynn.  Yes, he was just part of death knight week.  Who says death knights can’t want to be druids?  Jaellynn remembers his life before his death as a druid apprentice, and he wants to continue learning, despite being dead.  His druid version has two dots above the ‘y’ in his name.  He is level 85.

Then there’s Pimzoz.  Pimzoz was created as part of my new army of alts when I transferred to horde side on my main for raiding.  I didn’t want to faction transfer all of my alliance characters, and I had the free space to work with yet on that server.  When I burned out on raiding and decided to try RP, Pimzoz was left behind in this elite top raiding guild.  Two years later, he was still level 12, and to my surprise, still in the guild.  They had done all the gold challenge modes and defeated heroic sha of fear.  I could get things!  I bought the pet, then set about leveling him for the mount, which he was able to learn at level 85.  I have since transferred him to The Venture Co realm.  It’s an RP PVP realm, and one of two realms that are not subject to CRZ.  He sits in Storm Peaks now, hunting a certain protodrake!

OOC – Screenshots

So, before supper tonight, I thought I would run a quick LFR on my druid in an attempt to get him some better gear.  I queued up, waited a few minutes and got placed in a group.  I hit accept and it teleported me to the raid instance.  I buff and start healing the first pull.  Then I noticed…

Jaeyn?  But I'm on my druid, not my hunter.  What's going on here?

Jaeyn? But I’m on my druid, not my hunter. What’s going on here?

Turns out, it’s another Jaeyn.  I looked up the name then on the armory.  There are only three level 90 Jaeyn’s.  Two of us are hunters.  So I figure the chances of this happening have got to be pretty low.  I said hi in private and we both had a little laugh over it.  At the end, I got a nice screenshot to show everyone I met the other hunter named Jaeyn!

Hi Jaeyn!

Hi Jaeyn!

Art – Terivanis Colored Sketch

His nephew, Farahlor, had taken his first steps.  Kelanori had warned him that he was still unsteady walking on his own.  Terivanis walked slowly along the stony beach, holding the young elf’s hand.  He had missed this with Lilindor, having still been grieving at that point.  Technically, he hadn’t been there for Farahlor’s first steps either, but he was here now, walking with him while he was still unsteady on his feet.  That was more than he had been able to do for Lilindor at the same age.

The waves rushed in, lapping at their bare feet before rushing back out again.  Farahlor would pause each time, looking down at the water swirling around his feet and making joyful squeals.  Terivanis smiled softly each time.

He had, occasionally during the last year, wondered how possible a baby with Vajarra would be.  It hadn’t happened yet.  Perhaps they could adopt one, eventually.  For now, he was content to be Farahlor’s uncle.
