A MOTHER'S EMBRACE // meeting 4/29
« on: April 29, 2018, 08:12:17 PM »
//since the negotiation is ongoing, you can participate as if luna has returned, una!

Odd looks had been shot the leader's way as they spotted him upon his normal perch - the platform - but why hadn't he called out? Today was the meeting, right? The energetic feline was climbing precariously on top of the massive telescope, sniffing at it and peering into nooks and crannies, staring at the mechanisms and wires- things of the like. What was he doing? Eventually, it seemed, he found what he was looking for (or finished whatever he was doing in the first place), for he stood leaning on the railing of the platform as he normally did. "Hey, guys! It's time for another meeting! Gather around, please!" The familiar cheer and smile had returned to his face. It was certainly much better than the last meeting.

As per usual, he took to sitting down and waiting as the first few began to show their faces, gathering around on the carpeted floor and turning expectant eyes up to him. After a decent number had come together, Starrynight took to peering over the railing again. "First things first! I wanna welcome the newcomers that had appeared within the last two weeks! Please give a nice warm greeting to @Xion, , @raygun. , @↝ remy ↜ , @NOCTIS , @★ HAZEL , @MAES HUGHES , and @Eternalwar ! Also, please welcome back @venta. ! It's been a while since I've seen you!" His tail swished behind him gleefully. "We have so many members now! I just wanna say that I'm so glad all of you are here. Thank you!"

As for the next order of events... Starrynight's face became a little more solemn. "I know most, if not all of you are aware of what's going on with Tanglewood. I know you're upset about what they did to Luna. But please, I'm asking you, don't start anything. It's not too late to come to a verbal conclusion to this. Don't start any fights, don't trespass, don't do anything. Please." He wanted to do everything he could to avoid a war. Putting everyone in danger was the last thing he wanted. "If it comes down to it, I'll try to reason with Beck one more time. Or as many times as it takes. Until then, please don't go near the Tanglewood border without one or two people with you. If you scent Tanglers within our territory, please don't track them down. Just let me know. Okay? I trust all of you." A soft sigh escaped the milky feline.

"All bad news aside, I'd like to offer another reminder that we have weekly tasks and always need volunteers! Roy has offered to host the next week's tasks, so thanks for that!" he directed at the tiger-turned-bobcat. What was next? Oh- right. His haunches waggled slowly from side to side. "I have a big surprise for all of you tomorrow night! I'll let you know around noon tomorrow. Until then, I'm not telling anything! Not a peep!" With that, he took a seat again. He would continue once more people arrived.

Her first meeting since she had returned from Tanglewood. It was a relieving sight, a meeting in her home. Tanglewood's swamp wasn't a nice place to be, especially the dark room she had been in.

The female had taken a seat near a small group of NPCs and she stared upward at Starrynight as he spoke.

Remy hadn't been aware groups like this had meetings. They supposed it made sense, considering to keep the group organised they'd all have to be aware of things happening, and a group meeting would be the best way to make sure everyone knew what was going on. Remy didn't have the best of hearing, but they'd just barely managed to hear Starry calling out. It took them a few moments to figure out who had actually called for the meeting, but once their gaze landed on the blurry figure of the cat who they'd assume was leader, they began to slither on over. Even if that wasn't the leader, Remy figured it would just be an opportunity to make a new friend, so it couldn't hurt to head over.

Once they were close enough to hear Starry with ease and see him better than before, they slowly coiled themselves up in their version of sitting and listened. They were a bit surprised to hear all of the newcomers called out; it must've been hard to keep track of that, and they were sure they never would've been able to had they been a leader.

Remy had no idea who this Luna is, but they'd heard stories of this Tanglewood and decided whatever they'd done to her must've been pretty bad. They hoped it'd be resolved soon; to join a group like this that wanted no conflict, only for another group to cause a fight would be a huge pain in their ass. At least the leader was making sure the group members didn't stir up trouble.

A surprise? Wasn't a surprise for such a large group kind of hard to make happen? Remy would've shrugged to themselves if they had shoulders. It wasn't their problem. Well, it sort of was, but it sounded like a good surprise, so they weren't worried.

▶ MARGAERY FOLIE - tags - THE ASCENDANTS - OBSERVER - SHE/HER- FELINE ◀
Margaery had been different recently- tired, less enthused, a shadow of the normally charismatic, chatty girl she used to be. Things had not been easy since joining the Ascendants and she had written off her drastic change in mood as a byproduct of a new environment, new information, and a perpetual worry for her daughters. It didn't help that the condition of her lungs was deteriorating as well and, seeing as this group still lacked an official healer, she could do nothing but hope and pray that they didn't stop working all together.

As she heard the call for a meeting, she moved to the area quickly, bluish gray eyes falling upon the familiar form of Starry. She offered no words as he spoke, merely listening and bobbing her head accordingly.

Radeken was there, holding something fabric in her mouth. Just a snatch of material from a shirt or a sweater, perhaps, but she seemed very determined to tote it around with her. The wolf took a seat, looking up at her leader with the cloth pinched tight in her teeth.

Oh, Bastille was pissed. That probably was not a shock to anyone, frankly, and he did not do much to hide it; no, when he arrived at the meeting it was with visible tension, the energy around him practically vibrating with his contained anger. He tried not to blame Starry. He really did. He knew that the Seraph was just trying to keep the peace, but fuck -- he wanted to rip Beck's little ghostly throat out and smack him with holy water or some shit. He wanted to see that Tanglewood perished in the worst of ways. He was vengeful and bitter and it was a dark look on him as he sat himself down somewhat close to Margy. (He would not admit it, but he took comfort in her presence and was using it to help ground himself.)

He looked irritated as Starry spoke, enforcing his no engagement policy, but Bast held his tongue and his temper in check. Beck would fuck it all up eventually, anyway. Those slimy Tanglewood fuckers were too big of assholes to simply let up, and Bast would get his opportunity. He was certain of it. In the meantime, he swallowed his protests and his insistance that they strike back and forced himself to stay quiet for the rest of the announcements. Only for Starry, though.

Meetings. She had always enjoyed these things, especially when good news was the topic. However, this meeting was a jumble of both good and bad things. She was frusted at Luna's unfortunate situation, and she wanted to act on that anger. But Starrynignt wanted nothing of the sort; civil talks would hopefully win, like he wanted. She only prayed it would work out that way. Albeit, with her experience, Suiteheart knew madmen could not be trusted to talk things out.

She stole a glance at Margaery and then at Bastillepaw. Both seemed to be battling their own demons, and she wished she still possessed emotional manipulation. If she could take away some of their worried for even a split second, she would do it in a heartbeat. But she couldn't. So instead, she would sit between them and try to offer some solace with a half-hearted, reassuring smile.

She intertwined her tail with Margaery's, hoping to offer comfort in the physical form. This scared her a bit, for physical interactions had terrified her since their reunion, but maybe it would help her wife. Maybe. "A surprise sounds exciting, huh?" she asked, voice soft.

  WHEN MY HEART IS MADE FROM GOLD AND FORGIVENESS SEEMS TOO BOLD
Hazel had been to these before. They’d held them in her old clan, but she had never been part of the announcements, and they had never applied to her directly. So to walk in and hear her name mentioned among the other newcomers gave Hazel a special sort of shy bounce to her gait and glow to her aura, the tips of her ears flushing hot. She wanted to say thank you, but thought better of it, knowing she wasn’t that important of an asset to the clan.

Hazel settled down on her own after a few seconds of looking for someone familiar. Well - backtrack. She saw plenty of familiar faces, but none of which she actually noticed were alone. She could sit near Margy and Suite, but they were next to Bastille, and he was still putting off odd vibes. He was radiating a quiet fury, and Hazel wasn’t sure she could hold herself together next to that.

So she tucked her paws underneath her chest and curled her tail, teeth rubbing gently on her bottom lip by habit. As she listened, she felt a prickle of curiosity at Luna’s name. Mm...maybe she’d ask about that later, when miithers wasn’t about to deadass fall asleep and drop her phone on her face. As for the surprise...interesting. Hazel wasn’t super invested in surprises, but this one seemed just a little ominous.

Roy was the next one to pad in, the melanistic bobcat arriving shortly after Hazel. This was the second meeting Roy has attended here, the first one didn't feel like it was too long ago. Back in that meeting, he had been welcomed into the group, and he remembered Starrynight mention things regarding Luna and Beck. This time around, his close friend Hughes was welcomed in, which Roy automatically looked for in the crowd. If Hughes decided to attend, Roy would stand near him. But what caught his attention next was the situation about Beck. Almost instantly, the bobcat was rolling his eyes at Starrynight's comments regarding the situation. Roy actually has a similar mindset to Bastillepaw, unlike Bast, he's not going to stay quiet. "With all respect Starrynight, I doubt that you'll be able to reason with Beck." He spoke up with that confident tone of his, that was also mixed with an authoritative, serious tone. "You've already gone to him once about the situation, am I correct? And from my knowledge it didn't turn out as you planned it to be."

"Anyways, Beck even tried to attack me a few days ago- I doubt he has any interest in what you'll have to say to him," He said with a small frown, as his tufted ears drew back to his head. "The only reason why I'm okay now is that I defended myself from him." He was still mad regarding the guy being a ghost, it had seemed quite convincing when Roy saw that pile of ash. Anyways, that alone probably will start something if Beck didn't take it well, he was sure the Tanglewood leader had been quite surprised when the Flame Alchemist retalilated. He wasn't a pacifist like his clanmates, he wasn't going to stand here and do nothing about it. It looked like Starrynight wanted to go towards pacifism with the situation, despite how ruthless and a threat the enemy is. Roy didn't want to get pushed around because the leader of this group refused to fight. This is his current home, whether he likes it or not, and he'd rather feel safe in it than in danger.

Oh, they had meetings at this place? Huh, that was interesting. She'd been to some form of a meeting before, only really to assess a few crises back at her old home. Despite their stressful nature, she'd been able to assess her situations better. Besides, she practically needed them to make sure everything was going to be okay in the end. She decided to hold that same view, applying it to whatever this meeting would be about.

Almost hesitantly, the serval arrived on the scene, casting a nervous glance around towards everyone. Wow, there really was a whole lot of people. She stopped for a moment, letting out a tiny cough, and wandering into the meeting space. Though, she made no attempt to greet or sit anywhere near the others, just paying attention to the announcements. There was something that specifically stood out to her, and that was the situation with Tanglewood. That situation sounded troublesome, and not to mention, dangerous. Her worries were only confirmed even more with Roy's words. If Beck was as dangerous as he was making him sound, then what was the rest of Tanglewood like? What would that mean for the Ascendants? She decided to stay silent for the time being, wanting to listen to everyone else's opinion, before even daring to think of throwing in her own.

when her name was called and some cast a curious glance at her, the large tigress - which now she thought on it she was rather larger than most of em here, huh - waved a paw with a nonchalant "sup" before listening to the rest of the meetin.

Her lips thinned at starrybutt's choice and she inclined her head as Royo spoke up "He's got a point - Y' can't always reason with them types, an believe me I've met an lived with more than a few' them" she shrugged "but hey your call Leader man, I'll listen" but I ain't happy bout it, was clearly in the undertone but heck she'd always been a good team player.

//OOC

There had been an inkling of a feeling that his decision would be challenged hotly by the Ascendants gathered below. At first, all seemed well, some getting curious or excited over the prospect of the surprise, but his lips pursed as Roy called out. He waited quietly out of respect before defending himself. "We won't know until I try." A soft sigh puffed out of his jaws. "No, I haven't gone to Beck about asking him to be more kind. I simply offered a gift to surprise them, that was all. It went... fine." The members who had smelled the flowers and come over had been friendly enough. Beck had been, well... Beck.

His expression soured a little at the mention of the attack. It had been uncalled for, sure. But he wanted to give the Commander the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he had been coming to talk to him? Roy could be rather... intimidating and hostile upon first meeting. Beck might have felt pressured. Even as he tried to convince himself of such, the doubt continued to bite the back of his mind. "Just listen to me for this one, okay? I know all of you are mad. But I'll make this work. I promise. Just don't... do anything that might screw it up." He hated talking like this.

Starrynight shook himself. It was time to move on. "Let's just get back on the happy track, yeah? I don't like how tense it is in here." He drew in a deep breath. The smile returned. "I'd like to give a big shoutout to Margaret! You've done really great these past two weeks, and I appreciate every bit of it. Keep it up!" He nodded vigorously in her direction.

The Astral Seraph then looked down at Lunafreya. "Luna, I know you just got back and that you need to settle down and rest for a while, but I've been meaning to do this for ages. You can always turn it down, of course. Would you like to step up to Starstruck Guardian?"

One more. As Luna thought over her offer, he gazed at Suiteheart. "Hotelsuites!" he called. "You've done absolutely outstanding despite being kinda new here! I'm super happy that you've worked so hard, and I hope you've had fun doing it. Would you like to become a Starstruck Guardian too?"

Oh, one more thing! He'd almost forgotten! "I'd also like to quickly announce that Radeken has decided to take up the role of our Clan Cleric! Everyone give her a big thank-you!"

"I'm afraid I can't take your word for that." Roy said with almost little to no hesitation, not that long after Starrynight finished up his response to him and then his other announcements. Roy didn't have the best faith that Starrynight can really resolve this issue, especially in the way Starrynight has told the clan. Roy couldn't help it but feel a bit aggravated, in Roy's eyes it felt like he was the only one standing up to this idiotic, stupid plan. "I'm being honest with you, I don't think you, wandering up to Tanglewood territory, will be a good idea. Clearly Beck has shown us that he's damn hostile, and last time I checked in combat practice, you don't like to fight. You didn't even want to spar with your clanmate, who didn't have any intentions on physically harming you." But Beck? If that ghost attacked Starrynight, most likely Beck isn't going to show Starrynight mercy.

"There's a fucking possibility he might attack you if you go there to ask him to be more kind. I suggest you rethink this whole situation," He finished up as his ears pinned back to his skull, blue eyes staring right at Starrynight.

Her first-ever promotion. How exciting. The snowy-white serval would take a couple of steps forward before she smiled in her embarrassment towards Starry. "The last few days haven't been too stressful on me, so I'll accept it. I'll be alright. And congrats to Suiteheart and Radeken!"

Roy only voice her concern. Granted, he did it in a way that she didn't particularly like, but it was whatever. Peace talks were not worth wasting breath over if nothing came out of it. Action needed action. Maybe she was just letting anger and worry blind her, but she thought they needed to do something. Retaliation, at least.

And to think she had been so against this idea a few days ago. Huh. Funny how things could change.

As the meeting lifted itself onto lighter topics, she listened carefully. A smile played upon her lips as Margaery was given a shout out for her activity. The chocolate point had been working tirelessly to do well for herself and her new home. Suite was glad someone was paying attention. "Nice job, Margy," she commented, turning to face her wife.

Promotions were next, and she found herself looking again to Starry. Luna was up first, and cheered her congratulations. If she'd been working hard, then surely she deserved it. Suite had seen her around a lot after all.

What surprised her most, however, was the next name on the list: her own. Baby blue eyes widened at the mention of her own promotion. Starstruck Guardian? That had a nice ring to it, didn't it? She grinned brilliantly at her leader's praise. "I'd be more than happy to accept, Star!"

Radeken's name was called next. Cleric. She felt herself breath a sight of relief. She had been hoping the Ascendants would be getting a medic soon, and here one was. It felt nice knowing someone could take care of them. Just like with Luna, she cheered her congrats for the wolf.

When Roy spoke, her ear twitched. Her face screwed up in annoyance. While she didn't necessarily agree with Starry's plan, she did not like Roy's loud-mouthed complaining. "Well, I guess it's a good thing you're not the leader then, huh?" her voice was flat but not cold enough to be hostile. "Even if you don't like the call, it's not yours to make. Starry's decision is final. Always. And you know that, dude. Besides that, if the time comes and the need's there, then we fight. But now? Now we need to bide our time. And we certainly don't need friction amongst our members - because we've got enough to fucking worry about."
