Setting
Year III | Fall
The leaves that have turned their auburn and crimson colors are now falling to the earth. Many trees are barren as the cold temperatures of fall set in. Many animals are fattening themselves for the winter to come. There is talk this winter is going to be a hard one so many are prepping early. The air is crisp and most mornings are accompanied by a thin layer of ice as it drops below freezing a few hours after the sun sets. The hides on many animals, especially the equines are thickening as the northern winds bring in a heavy chill. Many are nervous the rumors of a harsh winter is true. Those smart enoough stock up on fire wood and supplies in hopes they will be prepared. Nearly all the mirgatorial birds have flown to the warmest parts of Caeleste by now, almost a month ealier than normal!

We are blessed to have her apart of the team and cannot thank you enough for your dedication and creativity!
  • Thread of the Month
    Standing in the Way of the Light
    A wild tale of two very dark creatures meeting for a second time... Xavier, possessed by 'The Darkness' tries to warn Resin about the demon inside of him but she is far too fearless to listen. Long story short The Darkness and Resin strike a deal... For twelve months the demon will on feed on her and then on the last day of the twelve months it will leave Xavier's body and never return. However it refuses to leave empty handed and as it leave Xavier it will take Resin's soul! It's a daring, darking, emotional and twisted thread that won't leave you dissapointed!
  • Couple of the Month
    Rhiannon & Wellington
    A very interesting duo that you would never expect to be friends. The noble, strong headed, and rather independant Rhiannon versus Wellington, an eccentric character that has a weak moral compass but hilarious nonetheless. Their dynamics make for very interesting and rather comical threads. You can't help but wonder why a mare like Rhiannon spends her time with a creature like him but then also thankful she is there to take care Wellington and save him from all of his shenanigans.
  • Character of the Month
    Xaiver
    A soul tormented by his own demons and terrible past, Xavier is a unique character to Caeleste. The poor boy seems to have endured Hell - quite literally - only to be further tormented in recent times. While he is not the monster that lives within him, his hold on the metaphorical beast seems to be waning. We can't wait to see what is in store for Xavier's future and whether or not he will shake the hold of his inner demons!
  • Quote of the Month
    Resin
    "Another time, perhaps. I believe we've both tormented him enough for today."

    A sad moment in the thread Standing in the Way of the Light where Resin turns down the Darkness, the demon within Xavier. However tempted, she has more respect for Xavier and tries to decline as delicately as she knows... It is a capturing moment where the apathetic Resin shows something for the damned Xavier.

Appearance
The best way to describe Andromeda is that she looks like a Great-tailed Grackle when they shimmer in the sun, or even a galaxy. Shades of blue and purple splash her neck, shoulders, and rump. They twist and turn together, blending in the middle and fading at the edges. A blue-minty color hugs around the blue and purple, fading down her legs and the bottom half of her face. She's got vibrant lime green splashes that run along her spine and crest, drizzling down like someone had poured wet paint on her. The same vibrant green also splashes along her legs, going no higher than her knees and hocks. On her hind, left leg, Andromeda now sports a new prosthetic leg due to current events.

Rome's base color is a nice shade of slate, which can be seen most on her face, the inside of both front legs, and her barrel/abdomen area. Andromeda also has a pewter grey blaze that hugs the front of her face, stopping just before her eyes. Connected to the blaze swirl of the same pewter grey that runs along her cheeks, curling around a large dot. Having that same shade on her legs, it looks like a velociraptor took its claws and ran them down both sides of her front legs. Her body also has grey spots all over it, which glow in the dark. Her mane and tail are a mix of black and slate, with a dark royal blue and purple mix on the ends. And last, but not least, are her eyes. The best way to describe them are the same blue-mint that's on her body, except her pupils are white. Just because they're white, doesn't mean anything. She can still see perfectly fine.
Personality
Andromeda is one of those 'different' types of horses. Being judged and shunned by many and loved by few. Fortunately, for her, she had two loving parents. Her father - a great land owner and amazing father - and a mother who loved her with everything she could offer. Both sides of her parents - father being cold hearted sometimes and mother being snippy - Andromeda had grown a personality like theirs. She had been this snarky filly who had shunned her half sister and adopted half brother. She'd only loved one of her half siblings and even then, she had shunned her a few times. The young filly had tried to be as cold as her father, but always failed. There was not a mean bone in her body, and it only caused her mother relief to know her daughter was one of the 'good ones'.

As she grew, Andromeda came out of her shell a little bit more. Her personality grew from a fake bully to a rather sweet and innocent young mare. She had a couple friends, but not many that were close to her. She had no secrets to hide from anyone, so why not be an open book? This particular mare doesn't care who knows her story or not, she just talks and talks and talks until she gets bored with herself. But it's with the pretty mares that you'll find this fun loving mare. Teasing the mares and flaunting herself like a love-struck yearling. Sure, she finds boys 'pretty' but the girls are what gets her going. She loves the attention they give her - negative or not - and continues on her way.

This blue-green eyed dame knows she's beautiful; straight up. No one can really change her mind, unless they're constantly nit-picking at her. It's then - and only then - when she questions her appearance and tends to be distant for a while. There's always that one person who calls everyone ugly because they have no self esteem, and it's usually them who gets her down in the dumps. So, all in all this little girl is an attention hog, thinks she's more beautiful than others, loves the pretty girls, innocent, an open book, and will be totally honest with you.
History
Andromeda had - in her mind - fairly normal parents. Her mother was obsessed with her father, while he loved another woman. Her mother's obsession with this simple cremello stallion she called father was probably the saddest things ever. She'd always get in the way of things between her dad and this other mare, make things difficult, and be rude to the other mares. At the time, Rome had thought it was the greatest thing in the world; be rude to everyone and they make room for you to be with your man. Boy, how wrong was she?

Then there was her father. He was a one-woman kind of man in a herd of many mares. The way he acted around her mother was different than the others. He always seemed annoyed but loved her in a way. It had always made the filly wonder what it was like to be in his shoes; loving and hating a mare at the same time. And then he'd be this cold-hearted being when her mother was stepping out of her place. He was an odd stallion indeed, but a great one. And the way he loved each one of his foals. It wasn't magical, really, but each one seemed to bring the kindness from the bottom of his heart come up. The way he had looked at his foals; it was always pride that would shine in those ice-blue eyes.

It had been a very peaceful six months into her life before she and her mother were stolen. It had been a red and black splashed stallion who was very mean with a weird herd. It was foreign to her to interact with the others and tended to stick away from them. After the rest of the six month time period of her life - making her one years old - Andromeda was stolen from the red and black stud by a midnight blue-black stallion. She had only stayed with him a few nights before she was returned to her father. Whoever the stallion was, they never really talked. It had been one of those 'Come on, I'm taking you home' kind of deals. She never saw her mother much after that, always keeping a distance and hating her mother. The need to hate the galaxy painted mare seemed to fit in her 'I'm too cool for you' way of life.

It was a phase, after all. She was no mean horse - her hatred towards her mother aside - and often stuck away from that kind of thing. Of course, though, she was always dragged right back into it. This time, though, it had been the hate-filled feud between her sire and another stallion. It included her half sister and the one word everyone cringes from; Rape. Yeah, that's right. Her half sister had been raped by this stallion who wanted to get even with their father. Andromeda had watched her sister fall to pieces and suffer from the horrible ordeal. There was nothing anyone could do; they couldn't comfort her, they couldn't take the pain and memories away. It had killed the young galaxy filly terribly. Even her sister's mother and her younger brother. Their father, especially, had been torn down.

The vengeance her father must have felt towards the black antlered brute is what caused Andromeda to wander off. She had met a mare - a very masculine mare at that - and had been seduced by her. The way she worked her charm, her touches, her words; everything had made the mare come undone. All she wanted from the she-brute was love and attention. It's exactly what she got, too. The way the two acted around each other was as if they'd been smashed together with some spell and they couldn't stop the love thing. Or, in Rome's mind anyways. She had been completely love-stricken by the she-brute and when she told her father, he had seemed very shocked and upset.

It had been another reason for the painted mare to leave. When the brutress left, she'd been torn to pieces. She cried for days over the mare. If you asked her, it was as if her heart had been ripped from her chest and she was left there to bleed out. Everywhere she went, all she could do was think about the pain of being left behind by her love. She's still tortured by it, of course, but it's not as bad as it used to be. If anyone had seen her then, they would have felt terrible and then laughed about it behind her back. Sulking was one thing Rome had done afterwards. She wanted no part in company and often stuck to wandering alone or avoiding horses if she stumbled upon them.

That fall - a full season and a half - after the she-brute never returned - Andromeda found out that she was a big sister. Her mother had dumped the child off with someone else and taken off. Whatever, she'd never met her younger sister, but had learned her name through others; Liene. Apparently she was a personality-feeder and it made the young mare glad she never knew her. If there was one thing she didn't need, it would be a constant reminder of how much of a failure her mother was.

After leaving her life behind, Andromeda had ventured alone, letting herself find peace with the new life she was leading. The new horses she had met, the fun that life offered her, everything. She'd met several different horses and was amused by how well she had adjusted to their company. She became close to them and became an open book. She left no detail out in her life story or her feelings or sexuality. Whatever someone asked, she answered honestly. There were no secrets for her to hide, so why hide them? Someone was bound to find out sooner or later, right? Lying was one thing she didn't want to do. Her mother had kept secrets and hadn't even said good-bye to her.

She didn't want to become her mother, so she moved on with life and shoved that aside. Andromeda lived and left, meeting new friends along the way. She hadn't fallen in love again, but if and when she does, she will make sure it's the most magical and real thing she's ever felt. That one mare to make her feel special again would be her life, no matter what. They'd take her pain away and fill the hole that was left inside her. She just knew it.
Electricity Control (Primary Sorcery)
Sapphire Stone:
In the early stages of her new power, Andromeda will begin to feel buzzes in her mind when a storm is approaching. Closer and/or during the storm, she is at her weakest simply because the storm drains her of her magic. During the days, her silver-white specks across her body can spark at any given moment. She's unable to control them when this happens, but others may feel a slight shock if they're too close. The shock won't hurt them; it'll feel like a quick, painless zap. The more she tries to figure out her powers, the more it'll resist. The two aren't one whole being and the power retaliates by sending Andromeda into a seizure. As she figures her powers out the best she can with its early stages, Rome will eventually be able to start creating small lightening bug sized lights that hover in front of you for about a minute before they vanish into thin air. However, she has no idea how they're created and when she tries to think about it more, the power retaliates. It's a blessing from Greeshma, but also a terrible curse she chose for herself.




Emerald Stone:
Now able to control her magic a little bit better, the two learn to cooperate a little bit better. Where her magic doesn't zap her brain anymore, she is still prone to having seizures at any given time. The seizures are different than before. Instead of violent shakes and falling on the floor, Andromeda has Absent Seizures; She goes blank for a few seconds before coming through. She can still have Grand Mal seizures, but not as often. Her magic is stronger, allowing Andromeda to heat her insides on exceptionally cold winter days so she doesn't freeze to death. Andromeda is also able to warm others up by touching them, sending small waves of electricity to their core, heating them from the inside out. She is now able to cause a little bit of electricity to harm (accidental or on purpose) someone. It won't do long lasting damage, but it will give them a good shock. The lightening balls she was able to create with her Sapphire Stone have now turned into medium sized lightening bolts that she can control. During storms, instead of getting weaker, she grows stronger and can feel the power the storm has run through her body. It magnifies her magic and allows her to control the odd lightening bolt that comes from the sky. Not every one, but the occasional one.
Confidant
Bugs is a tiny, blue, "baby" Gryphon from Emerald Paradise. She had been born there many years ago, but due to a birth defect, has remained in her baby form. She is brave, but will use her flight reaction over her fight in any situation. Bugs isn't much of a fighter, but she's damn adorable when she wants to be. All she has to do is flash her bright pink eyes up at someone and start purring. Her body is the color of the sky, only fading to a dark teal beginning at her body and running down her legs. On her left hip, she sports a large lightening bolt tattoo that shocks her whenever Andromeda has had a seizure or is overusing her magic. Bugs's wings and tail feathers are white with blue tips. One last thing to know about this adorable little Gryphon, is that her favorite thing in the world is strawberries!
