Setting
YEAR TWO | AUTUMN
The nights are beginning to turn colder and deciduous plants are turning orange slowly, as the days begin to grow shorter. Some late evenings there are minor violent storms as the climate begins to shift, bringing heavy rain in a quick downpour. Days will become more cloudy and temperatures are dropping at nights, but most days are a comfortable 68ºF/20ºC to 77ºF/25ºC degrees, while in the desert its still pushing well above 86ºF/30ºC, but the mountains are getting cold, only hitting a max of 64ºF/18ºC on a good day. As autumn draws on, the plants that are seasonal will withers, nights will become longer, and there will even be increased snowfall in the Highlands. Mornings will be mist heavy and thick in some parts of the world, while they are crisp and cool in the desert. Autumn is well and truly here!
  • Character of the Month
    Eloise
    Eloise; where to start? A particularly gorgeous character her beauty is accompanied by an incredibly sweet and generous personality. Though this adorable equine might not strike you as courageous like some of Caeleste’s warriors, Eloise showed in the SWP that she has courage and selflessness to rival that of many other horses as she threw herself in front of Thyterios whom she did not know, to protect him from the dragon. Very well written by Kiwi, Eloise has definitely earned her position as character of the month!
  • Member of the Month
    Bloodwitch Vervain
    Bloodwitch has been a welcoming and active member of the Caeleste family since close to the beginning and by now everyone will recognise her wonderful face in the CBox. Regularly in the cbox and seemingly always up for a chat Bloodwitch is friendly and great to talk to plus she has had a wonderful range of gorgeous characters! From the badass Ardea to the adorable Heulwen whom she has taken on very well, you will surely recognise a few of her characters. A valued member of our community she is very deserving of this month’s Member of the Month.
  • Thread of the Month
    |SWP| Fire and Blood
    Fire and Blood is the TOTM this month and what a brilliant thread it was! The thrilling end to our most recent site wide plot, Fire and Blood was a prime example of characters’ and players’ ability to work together. A combination of wicked writing and badass fighting our wonderful horses successfully took down Shishira’s dragon and freed the Deities! Great fun to read and even more fun to take part in, Fire and Blood was a great thread and everyone who took part deserves a pat on the back.
  • Couple of the Month
    Alderaan & Gabriel
    Alderaan and Gabriel’s story was begun outside the borders of Caeleste but it is their re-uniting that has made them pair of the month this month. A relationship full of raw emotion and fiery passion their thread in the Celestial Passage is an incredible read! Both are brilliantly well-written characters who take us on a rollercoaster of emotions in their passage thread as the pair see each other once again for the first time apparently in a long time.
  • Quote of the Month
    Nothing Personal About It
    A captivating thread where the bold and youthful Charekai goes to Silver Pines to challenged the stoic and fearless Leonidas! This thread is full of drama, action, and character development. Charekai starts out with a laissez faire attitude but it quickly transfers into something serious as his past come flooding back. Leonidas, who had lost all hope for himself finds his spirit and determination and fights back with unrelenting force. Wounded, bloodied, and exhausted the two end their fight, leaving Leonidas victorious!

. Summary .

Avalon, while easy to look at, is not a raving beauty. The vivid blue of her left eye is lovely but the mismatched brown tone of her right is unsettling to some. Her coat does have a fascinating metallic shimmer in the right light but in the wrong light it can look almost muddy. She sports a bold white face but her mane and tail are an odd mix of cream and yellow/rose gold. The most immediately remarkable physical feature is the single gold colored hoof contrasting with the three silver ones. On closer inspection the speckling that dusts her topline and brindling marking her belly are certainly unusual, especially in comparison to her simple white half-cannon, sock and coronet leg markings. Even that is unlikely to make her stand out in a large crowed to anyone who doesn’t already know her though. Her build is more coarse than it is refined but well proportioned, compact and light weight. She is clearly intended for quick bursts, if not sustained efforts, of speed. Her movements, while frequently tentative, do manage to display a certain measured grace that often catches the eye even if her initial appearance does not. She also takes notable care to keep herself clean and presentable at all times.

Personality
Avalon is: caring, cautious, curious, dependable, gullible, loyal, quiet, shy, socially awkward, studious
Avalon is not: adventurous, arrogant, brave, charismatic, cruel, outgoing, reckless, thoughtless

Avalon likes:
staying home and tending to small matters that others might forget
pretty things, though she isn’t much of a collector she just likes to look at them
listening to stories
watching the sky

Avalon dislikes:
going places for the stack of visiting them, or for any reason really
drawing attention
speaking up in groups
not being clean

Summary: Avalon is a quiet, shy, unassuming lady who has always tended to spend much of her time watching the world around her and not as much participating in it. She is steadfast in her beliefs and opinions once she forms them but can take far too much time in deciding things. Her curiosity is strong but she is not terribly adventurous and much more likely to learn things from stories than from actual experience. So far, she is not terribly pleased with the single adventure she has embarked upon and it would really take some convincing to get her out on another one. Of course, all of her “I wont's" melt away when she is around Arcadia, he can talk her into almost anything. She is completely and dangerously devoted to him and will do whatever she is told if she believes it is in his best interest. Luckily he would never take advantage of that devotion, unfortunately, others will and have. She can be quite gullible, has a rather unfortunate blind spot for the faults of those around her and is always overeager to please. Not being terribly outgoing she has never had many friends but when others choose to make a friend of her she is very loyal and can be depended upon for an understanding ear, thoughtful if sometimes misguided advice and a supporting shoulder.

History
Prolog: This story begins, at least the part that is known and can be told, with an old mare and a goat. Together they made an unlikely but very lucky pair in many ways. The old mare’s name was Mandy and she had been a lone wanderer for all her life. The goat well, the goat was a goat and her name was Nessa. It was no magical companion bond that held the two together but a pure friendship of the long-lasting, always-forgiving, unbreakable kind.

No, Mandy was not Avalon’s mother at least not by blood. Mandy never had any children of her own. Avalon’s entry into the tale occurred under somewhat mysterious circumstances. She was abandoned at birth for no apparent reason. There was no sign of an attack or a fight, no body of a mare who didn’t make it through childbirth and certainly nothing obviously wrong with the perfectly healthy, little, lonely foal hidden in the high grasses. It was luck that brought Many and Nessa to the right place at the right time. It was luck that made the meeting happen just days after Nessa had birthed her most recent kid. Mady was just going to see the foal along to a normal mother for adoption, Nessa had other plans. Having been a mother many times over herself at this point, she was the firm opinion that Mandy was missing out. Nessa always got her way. So, Avalon was raised by a goat and a rather bumbling elderly mare.

~*~

The girl was about four months old when she first met Arcadia. It was early morning and she’d opened her eyes in the fading darkness to see what she thought was a shooting star. On a playful whim, she left Mandy, Nessa and Norin (the kid) sleeping deeply and chased off after the trail of the star. Of course, she wasn’t expecting to actually find anything so it was quite the shock when she peered around a large willow tree and came face to face with a strange, blue colt who looked to be about her own age.

Avalon: Wow! Did you fall from a star?
Arcadia: Yeah, sure kid.
Avalon: Wait… aren’t you a kid too?
Arcadia: If you say so… wanna play?


Despite his appearance, Arcadia truly wasn’t a kid at the time, and in fact never had been, but this is one of the many things about Arcadia that Avalon was destined to never completely understand. Even with all the wandering her little family did, magic just wasn’t much of a thing in the small piece of the world that she knew. This didn’t stop the pair from becoming immediate and fast friends however. She didn’t see him again for more than half a year but he was always foremost in her mind. After scolding the girl for wandering off, Nessa and Mandy decided that her story about a strange blue boy, who they could find no trace of, must be nothing more than an imaginary friend and there for quite harmless. They never did meet him...

~*~

After Avalon’s first birthday Mandy convinced Nessa that it really wasn’t good for the young lady to grow up completely isolated from others her age. So the for set off to find a herd that might take them in. Eventually a suitable herd was found but Nessa and Norin weren’t as welcome as Mandy would have liked. They lived with it for a time but after only about six months they decided to return to their wandering ways and left Avalon behind. Avalon was strange without realizing it, she really help it given her up bringing to the time. Most of the adults ignored her little oddities but the other children teased her endlessly, especially about Arcadia who none of them ever saw. At first she argued with them, tried everything she could think of to get them to believe her but in the end she came to the conclusion that grinning and baring it was probably the best way to get by. She simply looked forward to Arcadia’s visits and drifted dreamily through the times between.

Arcadia did visit every year on her birthday right up until her fifth one. She panicked when he didn’t show up and drove her herd members crazy with her pestering for information. One grumpy older stallion finally told her that if she’d lost something she ought to go look for it. So she went adventuring against her better judgment. The prospect shouldn’t really have bothered her given the early part of her life, but she’d grown accustomed to staying in a more localized area and wasn’t enthusiastic about leaving it.

~*~

Those lonely wanderings have spanned the better part of two seasons and now they have landed her at the passage into Caeleste.

0 0

It is highly unlikely that Avalon would battle unless her life or the life of her child is threatened.

Confidant
While Avalon loves all creatures, she is highly unlikely to ever have a confidant. Being as devoted to Arcadia as she is, just doesn't leave much room for other such life bonds.
