PostSubject: Old Dogs Reminisce   Fri Nov 27, 2015 10:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

It was a cold winter night, and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. A fire crackled in the hearth, warming the small house. Four sleepy dogs huddled together, comfy and snug. It seemed all it took to be warm was a loving hug.

The family of four sat together in front of the fireplace, wrapped up in a big blanket, with Luke and Styla on either side of their parents. They both had fallen asleep quite some time ago, rendered drowsy by the warmth. Luke's head rested in Lina's lap, and Styla had Syntax as her makeshift pillow. While they slept, Lina and Syn simply leaned on each other, watching the fire crackle and flicker.
Eventually, Syntax carefully breaks the silence, quietly asking her wife, "Do you remember when we would sit together like this, before we decided to live with each other, Lina?"

"AAARGH SHUT UP!" Lina exclaims aggravetedly, as a burst of something almost magical reflexively moves towards Syntax's head at lightning speed.

---

"Heh... I'm still really sorry about that. What was it I did again?" Lina mumbles softly into Syntax's ear in the present day, snuggling as close as can be as she smiles sheepishly up at her.

"Hmh, well, it was certainly impressive, that is for sure." Syntax of the present says sincerely, pulling her just a bit closer. "But nothing to be sorry about. I was, as they say, a persistent chatterbox in those times. Anyways, what you did was..."

---

A rope of webs materializes into being, lassoing itself around her mouth and binding her lips together. She was rendered silent immediately, only able to produce a muffled mumble. Frowning, she tries tugging on the rope around her head, to no avail.

The girl pants in frustration, knowing she unintentionally used some magic without even turning around.

She tries to make a noise to get her attention, unable to remove the bindings.

She ignores her, at least until she was done being busy, as she was much more manageable like this than when she was talking.

Syntax resorts to...
Waiting patiently.

Lina takes a medium sized bowl and pours some of the contents of the pot she was tending to into it. It appeared to be some sort of soup. She heads towards a shelf off to the side that seemed to have various ingredients that were labeled, but too far away to read from Syntax's perspective. She takes one jar full of a greenish powder and puts a pinch of it into the soup before stirring it and heading towards Syntax, sitting down next to her and taking a spoonful. "Here, this should help fully get rid of the toxic in your body, but it might not taste very good... Well? What are you waiting for? Open up!"

She just looks plaintively at her, pointing at her bindings.

"Ah, so that's what that was. Sorry bout that." A simple glow of her fingers and the bindings disappear.

"Thank you, Ms. Lina..." She says, sighing in slight relief. "And might I add, that was very impressive."

There is a very, very, very faint blush on her face as she responds with a simple "Thanks." before resuming what she was doing and holding the spoon up to her patient's mouth as though spoonfeeding her medicine.

Syntax lets Lina feed her, sitting very still and accepting the medicine without any real reaction, almost like a machine.

"What, you didn't notice it at all?" Lina seems a bit confused.

"... Wait a second." She places one hand on Syntax's shoulder and closes her eyes, another light glowing slightly from her fingers. She opens her eyes in a few moments. ".... So that's it. You're not human, are you?" She asks, now a bit wary.

"I am not. I am a being that has been called a 'homunculus', specifically a 'magimaton', according to my old master."

"Ooh, really? I've heard of your kind, but I've never actually seen one in person... So you ARE made to imitate a human almost exactly. Even fooled me... At least this explains your fetish for wanting to help me..." She rambles as she begins observing her, offhandedly giving her another spoonful of the soup mixture.

"I was created to serve." She says simply, sounding quite proud of it.

"So why aren't you serving your creator then?" She inquires.
