We have a lot of contests coming up so keep an eye out for those - and don't forget that Christmas is just around the corner! Who knows what suprises will be in store for the players of Baraenor! Also look to see the ending of the BWP for our resident Witch Doctor - he's going to be picking up steam.

10/4/17 — Baraenor has officially entered its third IC year! Welcoming the new year with a harsh winter that will hopefully bring promise of a better spring. In other news, the third stage of the board wide plot has been temporarily suspended until such time we have a few people that have completed stage two. This is to give people time to catch up as well as keep all surprises of each stage given via in character interactions. We will let you know when the next stage is released. =)

9/23/17 — Winter has come on Baraenor! this one is going to be a particularly difficult one. Rogue's will receive -5% heath per IC Winter Month this go around instead of the normal -3% so it's recommended they find homes soon.

Also, after yesterdays pride activity check three prides were disbanded. Due to smaller numbers at the current time, we have opted to close two of the prides in order to try and fill the remaining ones a bit better. Kyvar will remain open and ready for reclaiming as it was one of the original prides on the forum.

7/31/17 — Cootie will be gone from August 3rd-18th, on a trip to Japan! Please direct any concerns to Jolee during this time, as she'll be back from her absence then to keep things up and running. Cootie will still try to pop in on Discord and the cbox to check on everyone, but otherwise expect kind of a lull while everyone's out traveling before school starts back for a lot of players. Your regularly scheduled programming should resume in the next couple of weeks!

7/24/17 — We are still accepting entires for our Flora and Fauna contest! This is a neat opportunity to contribute directly to the world of Baraenor, and earn something for your efforts!

6/10/17 — Baraenor enters Year 2 with a bang, as The Starfall Contest is now underway! We're still working out some kinks and making new gameplay additions, the latest of which can be read about in this update.

5/25/17 — Lots of updates and changes are coming to Baraenor! With the removal of the pride limit - how many lions will be searching to stake their claims on their own lands? With the addition of Woman Empowerment ladies of Baraenor have just a little more umph.. But they still have to work for it! Staff changes have come up - and as summer really gets started - we have a lot of contests in full swing right now!

IC Updates
12/30/18: One of the largest established prides in Baraenor - Grimwood - disbands. Their leader Beetle has disappeared without a trace. New prides form with the fall of old prides, as Athens, too disbanded from the disappearance of their empress Bloom. Ishta Kalo is born from Zayn's claim on land in the Ethereal Forest and Byrn takes up root in Fessinger Grove with Shy'ath Grove. Among the chaos another pride rises in Hitad Springs - Paradox Rim claimed by Rei. What will this mean for the future relations of Paradox Rim and Iqniq?

11/05/18: — Noemi wins dominance over her sister Neomi! Evil-aligned characters may find their luck has drastically improved, and Baraenor may begin to see some very unusual offspring in the coming months - results of the spiritual unrest throughout the land. Speaking of spirits, the ghosts may begin to feel the pull of the Fields again as their time of freedom draws to a close. Sant Hem and Anima have dissolved, but three more have risen in their place, with Lochlan retaking Anima's old territory and both Stirling and Gabriel staking their own seperate claims in Naru Jungle.

09/25/18 — The goddesses continue to clash, and currently it is Noemi of the abyss with the most control - wielding her strength to influence the more unsavory characters of Baraenor. The upset of energies have unleashed the dearly departed freely into the land, and as the ghosts roam untethered, trouble brews between Imperio Sangre and Grimwood over the untimely demise of the young white tiger, Catherine. Just across the river, Empress Icefang of Luminosa sucessfully incapacitates Tyr, holding the former Sant Hem king in her territory while she decides his fate.

09/15/18 — As the land cools off, a new pride arises in the vale; Noctis led by King Agrippa. The scorned Andromède also takes Duskhollow from her former mate, renaming it to Athens. Baraenor's deities continue to plague the population with dreams and summons, and many have already gone to their respective strongholds with offerings to prove their loyalties. As the sisters grow stronger, what lies ahead when winter comes creeping in?

08/07/18 — Baraenor is in the middle of its usual summer heat wave, but that hasn't stopped the residents from trying to maintain their strongholds as resources begin to dwindle. Former Imperio empress (and heiress) Icefang has stepped out of her family's land to establish Luminosa across the river, while elsewhere Rothadt Erdő's king disappears and the pride dissolves. Otherwise it's business as usual, even if there's some strange goings-on down in the darkest recesses of the Phantom Bayou.

06/20/18 — Spring is here! The residents of Baraenor are a little worse for wear, but new legacies begin as Irkbaan Veistul establishes Rothadt Erdő along the eastern coast and Solomon Kivasante follows in his father's footsteps to revive Anima within the ethereal forest. But the land is never without its pockets of violence - Sant Hem's Tyr Rankeshson attempts to make Sundew pay for her insubordination while his heir Roanoke X'uekai is engaged in a death match against Grave Delekr.

05/06/18 — The skies begin to settle but down below the fights rage on, as new king Tyr Rankeshson of Sant Hem challenges Agnar's king Fenris Káruson to a death match. A few hopefuls have made their bids for leadership as well in the wake of Diello Lake's recent flooding and disbandment - the lioness Magdalene founds Izalith along the shores of Avaar Lagoon, the recently displaced Disa Kivasante vies for the throne of Imperio Sangre's Nikiri X'uekai and Kalios Grengar calls upon Duskhollow king Baldur Blackheart to defend his position.

04/10/18 — All hell breaks loose in Fessinger Grove as Diello king Zayn Kivasante leads a raid into Aerodeck's territory, with the recently-established Agnar's Empress Gunnr caught in the crossfire as the violence rapidly escalates. In the thick of the battle, Archduchess Sylvanas - one of Skol's own - turns on her king and challenges him for his crown. It seems the chaos has heralded the converging of the twin moons once again, as they draw ever closer to each other and cause all manner of astrological phenomena!

03/21/18 — With the increased availablity of resources, power begins to shift again, especially in Fessinger Grove - where Parvana re-takes Mirah Shores when Camilla disappears and Beetle Halfsbane departs from Diello Lake to stake her claim of Grimwood along the swamp's eastern edge. Another Diello lioness, Adélaide, also establishes Wintertide along the coast of Perisod Moor, and the rogue Nikiri X'uekai takes a portion of Norren Savanna after the scent markers of Caranox Plains are nowhere to be found.

03/07/18 — Spring is in the air, lifting some of the strains off of Baraenor's population. Food is becoming plentiful again, and with it the promise of a bit more peace among the prides. At least, in theory. Diello's resident tiger Luka attacks High King Skol of Aerodeck after some shady dealings involving one of her pridemates, Hillevi, who in turn makes an arrangement with Solomon in an effort to swear her loyalty. Within the territory of the Nomads itself, Morana issues a challenge against the now former heiress Buttermilk for her title - only for the cheetah to have disappeared, and for newcomer Sylvanas to answer in her place, while Heiress Absinthe of Itthon Nyers comes across Grave of Atral Fen in the bayou, and he ultimately kills her when she attacks him out of bloodlust.

02/18/18 — As the winter season rages on, Reshmi steps up to take over Adhina Cascade in the wake of Lennox's disappearance, renaming it Ashok Basin, while the young Skol Rankeshson makes a deal with the tiger Shrine in order to obtain control of the Aerodeck Nomads. Rostam Delekr takes Paradise, now Itthon Nyers, from Damien - and Nahlot Viitaas makes a bid for Mirah Shores, her challenge answered by current Empress Camilla Delekr.

02/04/18 — Nine prides - and one clan of creatures - have officially established themselves across Baraenor, making competition inevitable for land and resources. With well over twenty members a piece, Diello Lake and Ko'mox Fields have grown to megapride status and could certainly start putting strains on their neighbors. Things are already heating up in Fessinger Grove as new Empress Parvana of Mirah Shores sets her sights on driving the Aerodeck Nomads out of the swamp by raiding their territory!

01/28/18 — Four prides have dissolved under the pressure of the winter snows, paving the way for an ambitious few to build new empires in their wake. Deep in Naru Jungle, however, a battle rages as Solomon, the High King of Diello Lake, challenges Jorunn, Archduchess of Paradise to a death match!

01/20/18 — Eilif, King of Brogan Criostail, is challenged by one Priscilla Delekr for his crown after a disagreement over a young girl named Sakura! Elsewhere, the Empress and Emperor of Ko'mox Fields relocates their pride to the forest, and tensions rise in Starfall Crater over the fate of a trio of newborn cubs after their mother passes away from complications. In the wake of all this, the winter season makes itself known across Baraenor - promising to be one of the harshest yet.

01/04/18— With October comes changes! Damien defeats Varion as ruler of Elysian Summit and has some nefarious plans brewing. Zayn, King of Diello Lake, has managed to cling on to life after a grueling five day healing session by Disa. What does he do upon waking, however? Challenge Sant Hem for Jorunn! Winter is closing in on Baraenor, and with hardships on the way and prides growing more and more unsteady, where will the new season take us?

12/1/17 — As always, new prides appear while, sometimes simultaneously, existing prides vanish. Relations between these prides all lean toward alliances, which leads to a baby boom that is a mix of inter-pride passion and the Witch Doctor's influence. Meanwhile, strange occurrences begin to circulate through the rumor mill. Whispers of a white stag are abound, and folks are also beginning to speak of other creatures speaking lion-tongue. A leopard, a crocodile.. what else might Baraenor become a home for in the future?

11/4/17 — Much has happened in the last few months! The Witch Doctor continues his conquest to finish his goals.. Beware those of you who are of the dearly departed! In the meantime - multiple prides have fallen over the harsh winter months, leaving Baraenor down to six! With fewer prides, it means that there are alot of creatures looking to stake their own claims on the land. A few challenges are liable to crop up!

9/9/17 — The ocean recedes, forging a path to the mysterious island northeast of the mainland. However, it's an eerie locale, veiled by fog and ghostly voices that beckon the living to come and explore. Surely there's some correlation between it and the wandering souls that have been released from their bonds to the Memoire Fields, drifting across Baraenor as they did in life, searching for the reason behind their newfound freedom.

8/31/2017Anima Falls King Nevermore discovers the gruesome scene of his son's death and wife's capture, forcing him to abandon his territory and leave Baraenor in search of the culprit. Takira "Taske" Neron becomes the Empress of the forest in his stead, the shift in power quiet and undisturbed. On the opposite side of the map, Maranon Basin is founded in Mystall Ridge by Empress Devana and her mate, Helios, and becomes Baraenor's northernmost pride.

8/20/2017 — The unrelenting heat takes a toll on its inhabitants, but time marches on and not even the season can halt the rise and fall of monarchs across the land. When Kyvar Morass is left vacant once again, it is reclaimed by Livanna Varg, such that the jungle sees its first Empress in the wake of a harshly patriarchal past. Azil Hollow, having outlived its usefulness as a sanctuary in the mountains, is also abandoned and vanishes from the map - at least for now.

7/24/2017 — Baraenor is on the cusp of a heated summer, and with it the promise that the turmoil will ebb away a little - if only for now. Hard-pressed former queen Isadora takes over the abandoned Azil Hollow as its Empress and a young and amibitious Kaiden lays claim to the jungle of Kyvar Morass, while Mordred ascends the throne of Murkwood Grotto not long after his brother vanished. The survivors of the clash between the Delekr family and their outcasts are seeking vengeance, claiming the wives left behind as their own or holding them prisoner as punishment.

7/10/17 — In the wake of the strange astral phenomena, cubs are born with fur like the night sky in Anima Falls, and the tensions between Azil Hollow and Kyvar Morass finally erupt into a bloody battle on the grasslands. Four are killed - including Azil's king and one of his children - leaving the desolate Hollow in the paws of its young heir. Not long afterwards, Kyvar Morass and Murkwood Grotto both lose their kings. Will others take up their mantles, or are they destined to fade into obscurity?

6/27/17 — The moons grow closer and closer, one threatening to eclipse the other, the zenith of this strange phenomenon fast approaching as tensions run high across Baraenor. Skellryn Vale sees a new king not long after the death of its empress, when her heir Lilith is captured by Kyvar Morass and a lion named Artaxias claims the abandoned prideland. Another Delekr has taken over Murkwood Grotto in the wake of the prior king's disappearance, though the site of his claim is anything but peaceful, as the newly crowned Lennox immediately challenges for Rakel, a lioness of Mirah Shores, after a few heated words. Elsewhere, a strange pool charged with moonlight has revealed itself in Ethereal Forest - where did it come from, and what could it mean?

6/10/17 — A massive power shift consumes the land when Korrin is run from his territory and stripped of his name by his father Rhask and eldest brother Haru upon their arrival. Korrin and his loyalists flee to the mountains and establish Azil Hollow, while Haru himself takes the Kyvar Morass throne. Two other prides pop up elsewhere - Skellryn Vale and Navtiv Valley - while young Delekr Havok lays claim to the again abandoned Steppes, renaming it Murkwood Grotto and moving it to Ragefire Peaks. The heavens seem to be mimicking the chaos down below as the twin moons move ever closer together; stars are raining across the sky and a particularly large meteor has made landfall in Perisod Moor.

5/22/17 — When the King of Aellexus Steppes unexpectedly dies, the chance to claim the title emerges. Within minutes of the occurrence, a lion named Nevermore attempts to claim Ethereal Forest for his own. No more than 4 hours after, a lion named Vyper attempts to secure the savanna. Will these males go unchallenged, or will they be forced to fight for the title? Read more here and here.

5/12/17 — After the unexpected disbandment of Kyvar Morass, Korrin seeks to reclaim his title. Will he go unchallenged, or will blood be shed once more by the lions of the jungle? Read more here.

5/9/17 — True to what we've grown to expect, there is always something big going on in Mirah Shores. This time, it is a battle for the title of Queen. Hannibal, a fairly new addition to the pride, has her sights set on something big. After regaining her title so recently, Isadora loses it quicker than most of us expected. Newly crowned and ready to flaunt it, Hannibal goes so far as to invite the King's brother Barbas to her den for the night. Are more cubs on the horizon for this eclectic pride?

5/9/17 — Kirena of Mirah Shores, who just lost her only remaining cub (Sabryn) to a crocodile and has been outranked by a slave despite being the King's wife, is losing her mind. Not only does she find her assumed deceased son (Exodus) alive and well; she does not believe that he is actually her son. Sure that she would not be allowed to keep the boy due to feeling neglected, Kirena intends to alert Ezekael and leave it at that, though when Ezekael arrives, he solidifies Kirena's thoughts by calling for Isadora to care for the cub. Kirena, now feeling even further betrayed and unhinged, calls Isadora to a death match! Isadora, contrary to what we've seen of her battling in the past, goes for the kill without a second thought. Ezekael attempts to calm the situation, but it escalates regardless, one wife intent on killing another. Coincidentally enough, Graham from Iron Mountains has been loitering around the territory, even going so far as to having a private conversation with Kirena in an attempt to figure out what her turmoil is all about. The King of the Mountains leaps to the defense of Kirena, intent on turning the tables of the Death Match onto Isadora instead. Somehow Isadora manages to dodge Graham entirely, and the Death Match halts abruptly. Barbas slides in to seek compromise and diplomacy, but Graham has had enough with being nice to this pride that seems to be in shambles due to outside forces. He demands that Kirena be released to his care, and Ezekael gives her up like he'd never married her at all. Kirena flees in one direction, Chani the cub flees in another, and Graham leaves with the few members of his pride that have shown up.

5/9/17 — Just when you think things are settling down, two lionesses are killed in freak accidents caused by Mother Nature! Civali of Kyvar Morass is crushed beneath a fallen tree, leaving her husband Mordred and her son Dogo to grieve. Sabryn, a cub of Kirena's, of Mirah Shores is eaten alive by a massive crocodile who seems now to be a permanent fixture of Avaar Lagoon. Heartbreakingly enough, Kirena takes this loss extremely hard, having lost her son shortly after the litter was born. Shortly thereafter, Voluspa, current Queen, after giving birth and claiming Isadora's cubs as her own, travels to Iron Mountains in search of the King. Graham is quick to answer, and asks her what she might need. Suddenly we see Voluspa as never before, looking over her shoulder as though followed, crying out for help from the heterochromatic King of the Mountains. She tells him that Ezekael raped Isadora! Seeking justice, questioning his alliance to the Shores, Graham hustles his way to Fessinger Grove to find answers. Once there, with Ezekael and most of his pride (only one child is curious enough to check out the commotion) present, Graham explains his presence and calmly asks for the truth. Ezekael denounces Voluspa as Queen, stating it was always Isadora, but Voluspa, newly made slave, proves him wrong by using her Witch Doctor ability to summon an ancestral leader who will answer two questions truthfully. Graham breaks the alliance between Iron Mountains and Mirah Shores, leaving in disgust.

5/9/17 — Meanwhile, the new King of Iron Mountains has received the perfect initiation.. a challenge for his crown! Vyper, new to Baraenor but ambitious enough to rival all inhabitants, eventually succumbs to Graham, leaving the Mountain stronghold exactly as it was. On the northern side of the realm, more misfortune has befallen Mirah Shores, their Archduchess Tishala in particular. After happening upon a rogue lioness in Rysen Grasslands, the females are approached by Kyvar Morass' infamous grouch, Mordred. In his usual fashion, the red-maned male lays claim to the rogue immediately, and even Gersemi the Queen arrives to welcome their newest addition. At first it seems all will be well, for Tishala attempts to leave without a fight, but Mordred does the unthinkable and tries to claim her, despite her already belonging to Mirah Shores! Quick to the rescue is the King himself, charging in to protect his pride member. Absolute chaos erupts when Ezekael's brother Barbas, Heir to the throne, follows along and attempts to even the score by claiming Gersemi, who is unknowingly pregnant at this time. Korrin, her husband, descends on Barbas to protect Gersemi, calling for war between their prides in the process. One by one the crowd piles in to witness the majesty of Ezekael vs Mordred for Mirah Shores and Korrin vs Barbas for Gersemi. During this intense instance, Korrin is defeated by Barbas, making Gersemi a member of Mirah Shores, and while Korrin is down, his brother Gideon swoops in to claim the crown for Kyvar Morass'. Ezekael defeats Mordred in the end, leaving the prides to disperse to care for their wounded and process the state of hostility with their closest neighbor.

5/9/17 — Continuing on the same train of thought from our last update, we have surprising news from Mirah Shores. No sooner than Voluspa charging in for the kill did Isadora attempt to escape, only to be thwarted by her own brother-in-law, Barbas, and Voluspa herself. Ezekael is not present in this moment, when Voluspa strikes Isadora down to the rank of slave (a first in Baraenor's young life), for attempting to abort her litter. Gideon, who at this time was still Kyvar's sub-King, pays witness to all of the madness which unfolds here, giving him an intimate look into the workings of this oceanic pride.

04/5/17 — Much has happened since our last update! Voluspa has challenged Isadora to a death match after finding her attempting to abort her cubs, while also pregnant herself! Aellexus Steppe has a new King, Evander, and has started accepting members at a growing rate. It seems that testosterone has run rampant through the lands of Baraenor, especially Kyvar Morass. Korrin has a new Queen, who's filled to the brim with his young; he's also chased his brother, Gideon, from the land for choosing a woman over family! Both brothers have maimed one another, each party sporting a marred eye worthy of a patch. Iron Mountains has also had its fair share of drama, Graham meeting an old lover unexpectedly, and becoming the acting King of the mountains while Pallas journeys to find inner peace after delivering the morbid news of the death of Daphne Varg and encountering a cub in a similar situation. That is not all! Mother Nature has also run amok, dispersing singing creatures of all sorts to all the prides; what cooky things does the Mother have planned for us? Stay tuned and you just might find out.

03/19/17 — Pallas has become the new King of Iron Mountains! Meanwhile, Ezekael has found himself quite verulent and has started the process of siring multiple litters! The Varg are making themselves known as the family continues to grow, and with Daphne being returned to them - what dangers await the rest of the valley? More and more lions have stepped into the valley, and things are heating up across the board.

03/03/17 — Things are heating up as more and more lions filter into the lands of Baraenor! Hrungnir and Samuel clash once again over rulership of Aellexus Steppe, with the younger of the two once more emerging victorious. Tensions have run high between Mirah Shores and Kyvar Morass as their kings nearly come to blows over members. Whales have washed up on the beaches, drawing many lions from the edges to see what all the fuss is about. In the meantime, Apollyon has moved the pride once known as Qirin Glade to the Emerald Vale, giving rise to a new pride The Iron Mountains.

Today was - he would not call it home - but a day to stick around Vilmev. Stomach full, a heavy cloak of overcast in the air that kept threatening to turn to rain, he didn't want to be caught without shelter. Once he wouldn't have given two shits. When he was a wanderer. He slept wherever, suffered the weather, he'd have said it made him superior to coddled pride cubs.

But being spoiled was not bad. Not bad at all. Yesterday it had rained and from the moist inland earth sprung opportunistic fungus, little beige caps that grew in clumps like flowers. He wondered if these were the same that Elecktra tried to hide from him. He could try to track her down but since these were growing right now maybe he could find out for himself. And throw it in her face later. He was gathering from a clump that huddled in the lee of a mossy stump. He plucked them from the ground for they had no root and accumulated a pile against the bark. Not sure what he was going to do when he was done but this absorbed him for now.

Today it was a stick-around day for Evalyn as well. As much as she hated the notion that…that Malik was out there sniffing about for Gwyn. Yet her legs were ready to give way, waving like blades of dry grass. So, the doctor ordered some bed rest. Come on Eva, he’s not like you, he has a girlfriend and…a social life. They’re probably too busy smooching for him to actually go and do some cold-blooding killing.

Padding up and down, practically making herself a hole for a doormat, that was when she saw the boy. Vilmos was practically bursting with children. What more could an Ayah in training want? A small smile flickered onto her face. No better way of spending the stick-around day than getting to know the children. Of course, he was far bigger than the usual newborn she was supposed to be taking care of. But hey, they’re all kids at heart!

“Hey there. Whatcha doing?”

The teen's preoccupation with mushroom collection took all his focus. It was likely he glanced past her several times before she suddenly spoke. When she did, he twitched and whirled around. Half the little stems in his mouth spilled around his paws. He glanced at them, slanting his ears sideways, but the sight of her overwhelmed his tiny sense of urgency. "I'm hoarding." He grinned, chin half tipped. Not sure whether that was a good thing. For a wanderer like himself there was no home and no stash to return to, and so collection of anything was highly trivial. A game for cubs. But he knew prides were different and one could collect riches to presumably gain status. He didn't know whether mushrooms counted. Or whether status mattered. "These mushrooms good? I'm looking for herbalist mushrooms like for healing." Druuuuugs. He was looking for drugs. Except he didn't know that was a Thing, exactly. He just knew whatever Elecktra was using was a secret so he couldn't just, like, come out and ask what they were. He had to be sneaky and innocent about it.

“Hoarding, huh? I am really good at hoarding, particularly useless trinkets.” A smile spread on her face as she walked closer to spy whatever the young man was hoarding. The move had been a good thing, in the end. At least it forced her to leave behind the things she couldn’t carry. Which was a lot. And of course, herb stocks were priority, but there were the little things. The stupid, heartfelt things that reminded her of a moment, of someone.

Rose eyes grew wide at the sight of his bounty. “Not all mushrooms are edible, you must be really careful which ones you pick.” Some were poisonous, some were hallucinogens. Obviously, she couldn’t tell him something like that, too many dark alleys to questions she was sure to wrongly answer. “The mushrooms you seek grow around the bark of trees. They’re used as stress relievers or cures for a nasty cold.” Her head bends forward. “But these mushrooms, you have to be very careful. Especially anything red. They can make you very sick.” Evalyn blinks at the fungi at their feet. They weren’t poisonous, but the beige color on them could indicate any specie of psychedelic mushrooms. And she never had used them in any way whatsoever. Not on herself, or on patients. I mean you aren’t going to shove a mushroom into a woman in labor’s mouth, now are you? “What do you need the mushrooms for? Someone sick? I can help you look for good mushrooms if you want.”

Just get the kid away from the magic mushrooms. Away.

Are they even magic mushrooms? Man, you should’ve experimented more in your younger years Evalyn. It would be useful in times like these.

She hoarded stuff too? But it didn't sound like anything interesting that he could steal. He smiled and nodded, wax between his fangs. "I know not to eat all of them," he rolled his eyes a bit. Like his parents had let their kids just run around eating whatever. He wondered whether Elecktra had been taking mushrooms for stress relief. Maybe. She seemed awful stressed. But why was she hiding? "I got these from around a trunk," he nudged them with a paw, proud that he might have got the right ones even if by accident.

Hmm. What lie to give. He wanted her to help him but he had to stop her asking questions that he wouldn't be able to make up answers to. "They're for someone who was sick. And stressed. But not now. But it might come back. So... I wanna know what to get for them, when it happen again." Yep. Nod. Hold her gaze. Great thing about being a wild unruly child... had to know how to lie.

OOC: Gonna interpret that these aren’t the beige mushrooms and that he actually got some mushrooms from a trunk? Tell me if you want me to edit anything :3

Evalyn swallowed, her pink eyes growing bigger. The last thing she wanted was to offend the boy. She wanted to be friends! She didn’t want to hurt his feelings. The poor lioness had to try so hard not to babble on some really, really long apology.

You know that meme of that blown up dachshund? That’s Evalyn right now, trying to not bother Aurochs with her lame apologies.

“This is Reishi. It can help you sleep, relieve stress, and cure allergies.” Man, she sure was happy she could promote some healthy mushroom. Phew. Hugs, not drugs, kids. Evalyn nods at his suggestion. It was always good to be prepared. “These will surely help your friend sleep and relax.” A smile crosses her face, her expression and voice placid. It’s almost like she’s glowing with doctorly knowledge. “But you might wanna get some other stuff for her illness. What symptoms does she have?”

The crimson female appeared suddenly nervous, like she had swallowed a frog and it was trying to croak out her eyes. Aurochs actually swept a glance behind him to make sure nothing scary had sauntered up. He looked back at her strangely, a little put off that she wasn't acting as Adult an adult as most other adults he'd met. "If you want them you can have them. If they for stress relief. You look stressed, like, a lot of adults." He was gonna be nice and offer them to her with the totally irrelevant intent that it would make her tell him what they did.

Aurochs' tail wiggled as he listened to her tell about this Reishi. Help sleep... cure allergies... he didn't think that was what Ellie was going for unless she was allergic to cubs. Still, now he knew about a safe mushroom to try when he was alone again. He had to try as many safe ones as he could to find the one Ellie had been hiding. He assumed he would just... magically know when he found it. "I'll show you the ones I find so far!" he quipped and bounded off a short distance to the space between the roots where he had stashed several kinds. None of which he recognized but none of which had killed him just by being in his mouth. "She was really touchy... oh, and the light was hurting her eyes I think." Would explain why he had found the lioness in the caverns. Hmmm. He wondered how to say she wanted to be alone without this lady trying to pry into who exactly this was. If he didn't manage to get across how weird Ellie's behavior was, he'd probably just be forced to learn about how to treat a cold or something.

“Th-thanks. I guess.” Rose eyes fall on the mushrooms. Her expression is crystal clear, her confusion pinned on her cheeks. Oh lord. She wasn’t a fun adult anymore. She was boring.

She was a stressed adult. A workaholic. The symbolic tie weighing heavily upon her neck.

The mushrooms are pulled towards her, and she carries them along in her mouth to where he’s showing her next. The taste seeps into her tongue, yet it wasn’t relaxing her in the least. Evalyn examines his stash, very carefully. Mostly harmless mushroom, but at his description, she singles out the beige caps they were looking at earlier. “These. She must’ve eaten these.” What poor thing could this creature be suffering that they were using hallucinogens.

And in front of a child!

While her soft heart wanted to weave up a tail for the young lion, something less…stern, she couldn’t imagine that would help his friend. No, they needed an intervention. A real mushroom sit down! “They won’t kill her but they’ll make her real loopy. Make her...see things, hear things that aren't really there. It can be really dangerous.” She looks the child straight in the eye. “We have to get your friend some help.”

Aww shucks. "Don't mention it!" he called behind him, dimly aware of the confusion he had caused and (while he wasn't sure why) it pleased him. He smirked to himself but resumed a sweet curious face next time he looked at her. He wheeled around next to his tiny stash and craned his head in to watch as she sorted them. He had to make sure she didn't steal any. Or break them. Or try to hide them. If she tried to hide them then he knew those were the ones he was looking for. She pointed out the latest ones he had found, the little beige caps that grew in dapples like spots on a baby deer, and although he'd thought them the least cool she said they were actually dangerous.

He stuck out his tongue and wound it one way and then another like a crinkled half sheet of paper, drying it out in the air like that would get the taste off. They hadn't tasted like anything bad at the time. They still didn't. He kept his tongue out like he'd forgotten about it as she continued speaking and her words made him feel completely ominous; it kept him from looking excited. Until he figured out how to pull himself together. His heart raced - shit (one of his favorite new words). That was why Ellie had been hiding, so she could play with the things only she could see without anyone scolding her about how it was dangerous. Speaking of. "How is that dangerous? I see and hear things that weren't there once. When I got lost... and was really hungry and hurt... but Virag saved me." Spoken almost like a nice memory. And if you cut out most parts of it, it was. He'd have been dead without her but she'd carried him and he was safe without having to do more than hold on. "And but... my friend... she said the mushrooms were the help." He looked sideways, trying to look troubled in a different way than he actually was. Ellie's shit wasn't his problem... this lioness trying to get him to help her was.

“Th-thanks. I guess.” Rose eyes fall on the mushrooms. Her expression is crystal clear, her confusion pinned on her cheeks. Oh lord. She wasn’t a fun adult anymore. She was boring.

Now she was REALLY worried. Would it be too intrustive to ask the kid if HE needed help? After all, she’d already been called the boring, stressed adult by the teenager. But…she was a doctor! And what do doctors do? They help people! Even if she was just a newborn doctor. I mean, he’s pretty young and spiffy. Could be inside her realm of expertise.

“What if you think you’re chasing prey through the forest, but it’s all just your imagination? You fall into a ditch and die, that’s what.” It may have been a little harsh, but if he wanted her to treat him like an adult and not a baby, then he’d just have to suck it up!

Oh, sorry, that was rude. Then he’d have to…um…think about it? Extensively?

“You could really get yourself hurt.” Now…how to explain addiction and drugs to a kid. Well, he was a adult now, right? And she was that cool, hip, unstressed also adult. So, no fear. “She just thinks they’re the help. She may think that the mushroom’s reality is better than her own, that it keeps the pain away. But it’s not helping. You can’t fix things by masking them. She has to face her problems head on!”

Well that was exaggerating just a little. Maybe a lot. Way too transparent to scare him. He rolled his eyes. "I just be sure to tell myself not anything is actually real. And to stay where I'm at. Make sure am nice and comfy. Not like her." He was way smarter than the grumpy Ellie was, that was for sure, and the red lioness was only enforcing this impression. Apparently Ellie had been doing mushrooms all wrong. "I mean! If I was to. Not that I will. Hiding from reality is bad." Not sure if he believed that but it was the right thing to say. All responsible. And boring. Adults liked it when you acted that way.

The grey yearling nodded vacantly. Just act like he was convinced. Like he was a good boi. Like this whole thing didn't intrigue him more. This girl seemed to know a lot about herbs too and he didn't want her to slam the door of knowledge in his face. "But is anth... ana... an esthetic... isn't that the same thing? It keeps pain away. And doesn't fix anything." From how others spoke of it, it seemed like a legit medical practice. As legit as picking weeds and stuffing them in faces or making them into pastes was, anyway. He sorta hoped that would trip her up. Nothing like having to act innocent to make him want to be innocently obnoxious.

Did he…did he just roll his eyes at her? What. Had she said something wrong? Oh, Evalyn you’re just making yourself seem more uncool. Or maybe it’s that teenagers have some chronic eye thing. Well, if he wanted to end up in a ditch so be it. She’d just…have to follow him…with a stash of medical supplies. And probably cry and apologize and-

NO! You get a hold of yourself. You’re a strong, independent, smart doctor lady.

“Sure…” He wasn’t that good at covering up, was he? Not as much as he thought he was. “I really hope you don’t. And if you do, I hope if I’m not there to kill your buzz, that someone else does it for me.”

Now he went on about anesthetics. Like she had to stick to some moral ayah code or something. But naturally, Evalyn had a lot to say in the name of good and medicine. “No. Anesthetics simply take the pain away so you can function as normal, in your own reality, it doesn’t make you see things. It just makes it so that it feels like you usually do.” Her brows furrow. “Are you always in pain? Is that what you consider reality?”
