OOC Hey! It's Ruki! :D Been workin' on a new skin, which is why I haven't posted much, and it's finally done! Mostly anyway. Change it to Umber Fields and you should see all the fun. There are bound to be a few kinks in the display, so please tell me if there's anything wrong, or if something just looks odd to you, like if the font's too small. :C I'm thinkin' it might be. Staff ppl should pm me with 100x100 icons. Also the mini-profile circle images are 125x125. I thought they were 100x100 at first, but no, I forgot about the circle border edits. |D Couldn't have gotten it done without the codes from the people in the credits, so silent shoutout to them. Staytuned for more weird updates. Might do some re-arranging of the boards. Anywho, hope you like it!
OLD: 4/04 Ruki says: NEW SEASON! Spring has started! We might start advertising places again now that midterms are over for all of us, and posting is back up. Not exactly OOC news, but Enheit Alpha Sinead has PUPPIES. If you wanna adopt the last one, the adopt thread is HERE! Ody and Raven have their own rules for this, so read them and adopt a pup if y'all want. SPRANG BRAAAAKE.
2/26/15 WHY HELLO! Guess who it is again. Ruki. I've been busy condensing rules and tips into a handy updated guidebook here on THIS PAGE! with the help of my fellow staff buddies. It's super important to read and make sure you get all the fun info down. The newest rule is about ALPHA ACTIVITY, so be sure to read the Lands and Territories section. The gist of it is that yall leaders gotta post once a week. If you don't POOF. No more land for you. This is a new rule, but if you haven't posted within the next few days and haven't been active in a while, you best get on that 'cause yo' land's 'bout to be snatched.
IC Spring is here at last and the land is beginning to flourish with new life once more. Young animals are plentiful and slowly others are rousing out of hibernation. April showers rain down, and springtime flowers are budding out from their winter beds. SPRING will last from April 1st - June 1st
The order fell onto a young she-wolf who was painfully aware of where she had ended up. Nearly her whole life she had been told to avoid this place, and here she was, walking up the path to being auctioned off. Avery sighed as she took a few more paw steps, trying to balk as she realized her turn was next. Gulping she watched as the wolf who had been in front of her was being forced to trot around, and wolves called from the walls wanting to either claim it or poke fun. She couldn't tell.
This whole ordeal is actually quite silly. It really shouldn't be occurring, yet here it is occurring and such. How odd... The gods have obviously cast the bones for my future.
It had been two weeks since herself, and her younger sister had been brought here by their father. The young wolf's life had actually been easy until the brute had shown up, bringing chaos and hardship for their mother. He had caused fight after fight, with not only Avery, but her older sister Rue as well. His patience hadn't lasted long, and sure enough her father had snapped just like before. Avery winced at the memory of the long battle Rue and him had gone through; snarls, teeth and blood had clashed for what seemed like eons, but had only been a few heart beats. The ending had been her sister being driven off.
Then myself and Violet wind up here. The last place on earth I want to be. Speaking of Violet, I hope she's alright.
Avery knew that her younger sister, Violet had already been claimed. I just hope they are kind to her. She's an innocent soul.
"Next!" Ordered the guard once more, and she felt herself being pushed onto the rock. Blinking her blue eyes she looked around, but couldn't see much except blinding sunlight and high rock walls. The announcer cleared his throat, a sound of pity ringing in his words, "Young, medium build, lovely coat, black base with astonishing mixtures of red, white and orange. and interesting eyes.. Otherwise then that? Not much to look at folks. Ugly really. Who wants her?"
The words stung Avery as she sat in the middle of the rock. Her bright blue eyes showing her pain. Ugly he had called her. The one word that could cause her confidence and self esteem to come crashing down. She looked down at her paws, not wanting to be there.
"Can we see her move?" Called a wolf from above, and shortly after a guard jammed his paw into her ribs. Owl's eyes focused on his, growing cold when he did it again. On the third try her lips drew back into a snarl, daring him to try once more. Violet was the soft one, while Rue was the wild one. Owl was somewhere in the middle. Lifting her head she waited for someone to claim her.
