THE EMPTINESS SHOWS → painting

Very little proved impervious to the effects of time, change expected, nothing caught within a permanent standstill. Known this, understood with the aid of experience, though meagre it, proven no exception. Still disappointment grew, overwritten the map framed by a childhood supposedly behind him in days that seemed over long, his expectations proven too high.

Already weathered the poor facsimile of those he had deemed family had suffered. Faded once vibrant hues, partial the fault of chosen supplies though the rest from more natural effects. Already difficult to distinguish features had smoothed out, smudged together into a single unified shade, the darkest points surviving only for the lighter backdrop may not obscure it wholly. Time and time again he returned, fool proven each instance for his want for the effects to reverse.

Hesitation stilled his paw before contact may be made with the craggy surface. So many of the faces lost in two ways, last remnants fading away. Sigh slipped past his lips, attention diverting. Around him supplies, paint cans taken from the boardwalk, others for more natural creation. Wrong had it felt when the notion had entered his mind, desecration he could not perform.

He had to. Still their faces populated his mind even if they were lacking in the camp his back was turned to, the hussle and bussle the same even as different proved each individual. Recreated, kept alive in such a small way. Down he bent for a brief moment, strange the sensation of paint coating his paw. Slow the beginning, upward stretching, the old hidden beneath each stroke.

Vaas. Quasar. Medusa.

Each gone in turn, Rhine still there simply changed, Sugarspice added to the assembly, faces Foam knew. Always room for more, almost expected, welcome any who wished to add their own creations for he proved incapable of the addition when he knew none of them.

A REAL ONE, YEAH, SHE'S A STUNNER
Oh, how Rhine missed the faces that had once been so familiar to her. Vaas, Quasar, Medusa... all important to her in different ways, all so desperately missed within her heart. Medusa, a loyal confidant. Vaas, a rough around the edges but kind boyfriend. And Quasar... her son. Brightly colored and quite the loudmouth, but ever so dearly beloved ever since she had taken him in, along with his brother. However, the legate also knew that she had no way of forcing them back with her. Medusa was dead, with seemingly no way to return unless she defied death as herself and Laeglin had done. And in the case of Vaas and Quasar... she had little to no idea where they had gone, and she had spent days upon days searching for the both of them. She had scoured every part of the Glades' territory, only to be left empty handed and even more pained. So, unless they found their way back to her naturally, there was nothing more that she could do.

Still, even as things changed for the worse, they also changed for the better. Although faces had been lost, there were still a great deal of new ones with the Glades, not to mention the most recent return. A return that filled the legate with warmth, as Suga's absence had similarly taken a toll on her. It was because of this that Rhine often wore a smile these days, even with all that had happened. She preferred to focus on the good things, rather than the bad. However, it was difficult for her not to notice Foampaw as she walked into camp, spotting the various cans of paint scattered around him as well.

Gaze drifting up towards the mural he had painted what felt like so long ago, Rhinestone couldn't help the pang of pain that passed through her chest. However, she pushed through, making her way over to where Foam was and offering the youngling a smile. She muttered as she looked up, watching as he rejuvenated creations long faded, "Foam... it's so sweet of you to paint again. It really was quite nice when you did it the first time... do you want any help?" She wasn't sure of how much help she would really be, considering her rudimentary art skills, but it still felt fitting to ask. After all, she cared just as much as he did, at least in her own eyes.

For the Record, this is self-destructive
For the record, I'm aware of that.
Ares didn't have any real reason to behave the way she did when Medusa was announced dead - she never new the Primus. But she just felt like something was missing, like someone important in her own life was taken from her. So it hurt her, just not as much as it hurt Foam and Rhine.

The injured feline also didn't know about Sugarspice and her relationship with the two, just knowing that she was special to them. Moving to stand next to Rhine, the girl smiled. "You seem pretty well-versed with painting, Foam. I wish I could do that." Maybe she could, at some point. Draw or paint Elsweyr and her friends in the Glades - if she were to get any friends, at least. Maybe when she got back to Tanglewood.. if she went back.
