On the night of the full moon, the members of the Caern of the Mother's Open Hands gather in the Hanalei Refuge.

There is a new face in the crowd - a slender young woman with coarse dark hair and sharp features standing close to Njall.

Mends-the-Rifts addresses the group. "Melissa Sun-Chaser here," she indicates the young woman standing near Njall, "has brought grave news." She extends the Talking Stick to Melissa. "Will you tell them?"

Melissa swallows hard as she takes the Talking Stick. "I bring news from Vancouver," she says, her voice sounding strained; she is obviously trying very hard to keep it steady.

"The Caern of Cooperation is lost," she says, then takes a deep breath. "Roger Daly of the Glass Walkers is dead."

It's several seconds before she can continue. "The truce is off - the filthy Leeches sold them out to the Wyrm!"

Anippe looks grimly at her fellow elders. "Now do you see?" she asks. "I told you nothing good could come of 'cooperating' with the Blood-Devils."

Andreu doesn't look surprised at the news. Though his face betrays anger, it's obvious that he'd already expected this.

Matt looks thoughtful. **I shouldn't speak out of turn, and what little I know that might relate to this is really Andreu's story. I'll wait...**
26th-Oct-2006 02:05 am (UTC)
When he gets the opportunity, Andreu takes the Talking Stick.

(As he speaks, his voice fills with disgust)

"Brothers and sisters, teachers and students, when you are out walking around the bawn of our home, I urge you to look for unusual spots of recently disturbed earth. Many days ago, I spied a spot where some... thing had dug into the ground. Upon removing the soil, I discovered a human-like but deformed creature. It attacked me with razor sharp teeth and claws, but burned in the sun's cleansing light. Once dragged out of the hole, it burst to flame and burned to ash."

He pauses to regain his composure, "I would assume it was a vampire, though why it would bury itself in the ground on our doorstep I do not know. I have been vigilant, seeking out evidence of more of them tainting the earth around us, but have seen none. While some might assume that there are no more, I would not be so foolish. Keep a watchful eye when you decide to protect our home. Should you discover one, I will be eager to remove such an abomination with you."

Done for now, he looks for reactions and indications of who wishes the stick next.

Matt holds out his hand for the stick.

Once he has it Matt says, "I was on my way to my cove do a patrol swim and I got to see most of what he just described."

Matt offers the talking skit to whoever wants it next.

Diana takes the Talking Stick from Matt and takes a deep breath. "Members of the Mother's Open Hands - I have more bad news." She pauses to look at Reads-Street-Sign, Itchy Kachina, and Charlie, then at the elders. "You might recall that at the last moot, Reads-yuf gathered a group to deal with the Wyrm drugs some humans were selling in Hanalei." Pause. "We did not find the drugs, but we did find something worse - one of the buyers led us to a store in Hanalei, where we found a Black Spiral Dancer masquerading as a shop girl."

Suddenly, another raven streaks into the assembly area, transforming in mid-landing into a weary Saki.

"Honored elders...changing brothers and sisters...forgive the interruption, but there is a group of shark men headed this way!"
3rd-Nov-2006 01:03 am (UTC)
Matt's face easily reads as a mix of surprise and happiness. He steps forward, turns, snags the speaking stick, turns back toward the elders and says, "Honored elders, I would like to go greet them!"
3rd-Nov-2006 02:42 am (UTC)
Lakshmi looks a bit concerned.

** I wonder -- will they be allies, or... otherwise? I know little of the shark folk, but I have never heard that they had much fondness for any of the other changing breeds. Either way, I suppose it is best if one of their own greets them, but in the event that they are not friendly -- **

"Matt, these are your people and you undoubtedly know them best -- would it be better if some of us accompanied you in case they are not friendly, or would they react badly to the presence of others? Perhaps if some of us followed, but stayed out of sight?"
3rd-Nov-2006 03:09 am (UTC)
Andreu also looks concerned, but says nothing when Lakshmi speaks what he was thinking.
3rd-Nov-2006 12:29 pm (UTC)
"Not friendly?" Obviously this idea hadn't occured to Matt. "Oh, I guess you could be right - I might offend them accidently or something. After all these will be the first shark people I've met." Matt thinks for a moment and then continues. "I don't know how they'll react to other shifters, I mean I get along ok - but they might be distracting. Not that this is would be a bad thing..." Matt's voice trails off as he gazes at Lakshmi with odvious admiration of her form. Matt tears his eyes away. "Um, I mean they might think it was, um, rude to attack a beautiful woman."
6th-Nov-2006 11:51 pm (UTC) - A new arrival
(OOC: This takes place (with implied ST permission) in the time between Saki giving the news of the Sharkmen and Matt leaving to greet them))

In the Umbral reflection of the caern, a lean wolf in need of a bath trots among the plant and animal spirits. Looking at a spot in space, :What?: Though silence answers him, he nods in agreement. He concentrates and steps forward into the barrier between worlds.

Appearing off to the side of the group, the wolf wags its tail briefly, then lowers his head in greeting.
7th-Nov-2006 12:21 pm (UTC) - Re: A new arrival
As the new arrival suddenly appears in the material world, Minoru gapes - a rather unusual expression for the elegant kitsune elder - but quickly recovers his composure. He inhales through his nose, and then nods, as if to himself.

"Will you introduce yourself, Son of Wolf?" he asks politely.

7th-Nov-2006 08:10 pm (UTC) - Re: A new arrival
The wolf nods again and starts bark and howling "{Speaks-To-The-Unseen. Shaman. Silent...]" He stops. **Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. They're not all Garou here**

Talib lets his form shift up to crinos before quickly willing himself into his homid form. A 5'8" Semetic man with a lean build. He has cropped black hair and brown eyes. He's wearing clothes that are obviously second-hand, probably picked out at a homeless shelter.

He looks at all gathered and nods again before talking, "I'm Speaks-To-The-Unseen, Theurge of the Silent Striders..." He pauses, sighs to himself, and finishes, "... Metis. I bear no message but my own well wishes. I offer my services to help here, and to act as a messenger and liason to the Septs of the Garou Nation, if needed."
