Lowen was in the middle of taking a bite of the stew when the word useless was used to describe Hana and himself, causing him to choke up a bit.

'Useless! Ha! Something me and the old man agree on!' the second voice snickered.

The young man chuckled - he couldn't argue there. "Well, I have done a variety of things to get by. I've helped families in need of assistance, laboring for their homes and agriculture, cleaning, deliveries--"

'Hitman for hire, thief for hire, hired whore', the other voice quipped.

"--assisting grocers, merchants, butchers--"

'Didn't I butcher that last merchant that double crossed us?' the voice snorted in delight.

"--And other things of that nature," Lowen said. "Unfortunately I do not have a specific trade of my own.. or rather, I haven't found one yet."

Lowen glanced over to Hana, noticing her without a chair. "Hana, would you like to sit here? I don't mind to stand."

Oren raises an eyebrow, "My family lives on their farm back in Serendipity. At least I hope so. They should have been ok after I left."

He looks between Shyla and Aeris as they talk to each other but says nothing.

He smiles when she says her name, "That's a nice name, though I would never call you Shy. I don't think you are." He stifles a chuckle at the wordplay.

He looks very nervous when she mentions rates, "I-I don't think I understand. What rates do you mean? Oh. OH," he stops walking entirely, "You must have seen me then. Not that I understand how given your...please don't report me. I'll help you as much as I can, free of charge." He looks even more scared of being "reported" than he did when he saw the pack.

Oren's right hand inches towards the handle of his knife out of reflex.

Her apology struck a chord in his heart the moment it began to fall from her lips. Despite how delicately he had tried to word his thoughts he still had managed to cause her pain. Lorcan regretted that. He was human after all and had been raised right. Mage or not, Mordecai or not he still wished that he did not cause harm to another, especially not someone who seemed as sweet and contrite as Madeline.

"There is no need to thank me," he returned gently with a soft smile as he tilted his head at her. It is my duty as a Mordecai to escort you. It is my duty as another living being to treat another with the same kindness and respect I would want myself to be treated with.

"That being said," he straightened and looked at the road ahead, "I don't feel there is any harm in trusting me and I am honored that you do. I shall strive to not let you down with such blessed trust. Thank you, Madeline. It is always a good feeling to know your travel companion is as comfortable with you as you are with them." Lorcan smiled then, confident and at peace. Perhaps his words could ease the blow his earlier ones had created. Hopefully she would see that he had meant no offense. A job was a job and he was just trying to do his.

"Well, who really lives anywhere?" she tossed cryptically over her shoulder. Aeris rolled his eyes and nudged her.

"Stop that, Shy," he rumbled. "And you said we were gonna scare him."

His half-elven sister crinkled up her nose at him, then twisted to add to their guest, "Name's Shyla, by the way. Not Shy." A pointed glare in Aeris's direction.

The lycan chuckled and dropped forward onto all fours to move faster up the mountainside, his siblings falling in beside him.

"So, what exactly are your going rates?" Shyla asked pleasantly. "Mind yourself, the path gets really steep here," she added as she adjusted her step accordingly.

Oren shakes Shyla's hand and it is a reasonably firm grip, though a little clammy from nervous sweat. He raises up his other palm and attempts to step back, forgetting he is still shaking her hand, "No, no I'm not judging anyone by their looks. Just the growling. And the glares."

He awkwardly moves to use the free hand to dust himself off and straighten out his cloak, "And I did notice you didn't say what you wanted." He nods towards Aeris, "Nice to meet you too then. Please forgive me for assuming. " He seems much more hesitant to offer his hand to Aeris.

Turning back to Shyla he adds, "I suppose I could understand why you would do the talking, uhm... I'm sorry I didn't catch your name. What should I call you?" He seems a little confused why she was shaking his hand for so long but doesn't mention it.

Oren slowly follows her after she releases his hand, trying to make it clear that he is leaving enough space between them that he is not a threat. "Do you all live here?"

The moment the smaller man was at his side, Artorius slid his hand up to wrap delicately about the back of Julian's neck. His grip was firm without being crushing with just enough pressure to both stake his claim over his pet but to also guide him into moving back to their rooms. No one could deny now that which was the gambler's. He would suffer no man to cross him after the display of violence against Greshig. It was obvious to all that parted in his wake that there was more to bawdy gambler than drunkenness and a bit of luck with cards, there was a scrappy fighter buried in there somewhere and that warrior had come to play.

Only once they were in their rooms and the door firmly bolted behind them did Artorius finally acknowledge Julian. He pulled the other man close with his hand still around his nape as he used his thumb to push Julian's jaw to the side so that he could view his throat. His touches were gentle even if his face was still smoldering with underlying anger. It seemed no lasting harm had been done as far as he could see though. A blessing or Greshig would have paid with his life.

"Oh yes, mouse. You were handling it so well," he growled back lowly. "Tell me when were you planning on actually trying to stop him? Once he had stripped you of your clothes? Or perhaps once he had fully buggered himself up your ass? You are weak. But, you are mine and it is my right to protect my property. The only one at risk dying tonight was him. He can thank me later for the fact he still can breathe for touching you so.

"I believe you too owe me a thank you for saving your pretty little hide, pet. I did save you twice tonight after all. It's the least you could do for my generosity."

"Oh?" Tobin took a bite of his stew, nodded in a satisfied sort of manner, and quirked his head to the side. "What sort of work do you do then? Sound like you're nearly about as useless as that one." He jerked a thumb toward Hana and she made an indignant noise of protest, cuffing the back of his head again.

"Well now there's no call for being rude," she said primly as she returned the stew pot to the hearth and took her own bowl in hand, leaning back against the wall to eat.

What are your favorite kinds of plots and relationships to play?
I am willing to try just about anything. Thinking of how to work in new and interesting ways is great.

What are your least favorite kinds of plots and relationships to play?
If there's no room for mild joking every so often, It may get too dry

What are your favorite character types to play?
Just about every character I make (here or elsewhere) is different enough that I have no real favorites

Are you a planner or a pantser? Do you prefer to pre-plan and stick to a script when posting, or do you prefer to surprise and be surprised?
I can do both without too much trouble, but surprises are more fun most of the time

How do you feel about group threads?
As long as no one feels left out I have no problem with them

How often can you reply to any given thread? How long should a partner wait before nudging you for a post?

For the most part I should reply at least daily. It its been a few, then a nudge would be appreciated.

What is the longest you're willing to wait for a reply to a thread?
If I know that the reply is on the way but may take a bit? A month or so. If I don't have any heads up then probably a week.

How do you feel about instant messenger RP?
I have no problem with it, but sometimes I need a little bit of time to think

Ho do you feel about post volleying/rapidfire RP?
(Where you and another player post rapidly back and forth in a thread with each other.)
Its great fun. It suits a conversation a little better sometimes if there isn't a need to too much description

What's your preferred posting style? Long posts? Short posts? Anything and everything?
Depends on the situation. I try to match the length of others' posts without sacrificing quality.


What are you limits regarding powerplay/godmoding?
(For instance, do you mind if someone grabs your character? Picks them up? Punches them?)
I'm pretty much ok with it as long as you aren't causing lasting damage. Though with a heads up that may not be a big deal either

What are your limits in regards to romantic situations?
(What are you comfortable with and not comfortable with? Do you prefer to pre-plot relationships or let them happen organically? Are you open to IC-rejection or love-triangles? Age differences? Etc.)

I prefer things that happen organically, but I'm open to some pre-planning within reason. As long as the age difference or situation doesn't start to feel skeevy, I'll be fine.

What are your limits with regards to graphic content such as sex, violence, drug use, sexual assault, etc? What is your comfort level?
Most of it is ok as long as there's a bit of a heads up beforehand, with the caveat that if anyone becomes uncomfortable it fades to black or gets cut

What are your limits in regards to pregnancy within plots?
(Are you okay with pregnancy in plots? Miscarriages? Loss?)
If it makes sense, then fine. But it would take a lot of convincing to go with the darker themes.

What about healing?
(For example, a blind character magically being able to see, a scarred up character having their scars repaired, etc.)
As long as it fits the situation and general power level. Magic is magic, but players have the last say on how effective it is on their characters.

What about characters being transformed against their will? (Think vampires, werewolves, and magical spells.)
Only by permission of the player. Completely changing someone's character without their permission is not enjoyable

Anything else?
(Anything else you want to add that other players should know!)
If I don't have a character that fits your story but you think I could fit well, just let me know what you are looking for. I don't mind creating someone or something tailored to an idea

Lowen's face turned a faded crimson as she helped him to his chair - though he wasn't sure why. He does have a dreadful attention span - constantly inside his own head - and is repeatedly caught off guard. It's actually somewhat amazing he has survived this long on his own.

The young man tilted his face down, clearing his throat, in attempt to hide the flushed tint of his cheeks.

Sure, clear your throat. That will definitely take the attention off of you.

His gazed turned to Hana's father after hearing the question. "Well, you see Mr. Tobin," he began, "Nowhere is home to me at the moment. I do not have a place to call my own right now, so I travel from place to place - looking for work to keep myself fed."

He smiled contently at Hana's mouthed apology. "I was in a bit of a rough patch when Hana found me."
