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?"

... The creature yelps and is knocked back by some sort of magical blast. As another one strikes while it stands up, it shakes itself off and flees.

... Syntax can faintly feel someone lifting her up off the ground.

..? She tries to look at the person, but it's getting harder to do much of anything.

She can faintly hear a familiar voice, but even her hearing is shutting down. "... Such an idiot..."

She briefly wonders; about what, she's not sure. But whatever it was, it's soon lost to the blackness of unconsciousness.

She awakens an unspecified amount of time later in a house of some sort.

She awakens slowly, as sluggish and bleary as one of her nature could be.

She blinks heavily and tries to look around.

While not a complete impoverished dump, it's clear the person living here wasn't exactly that well off financially.

As that observation processes in her mind, the world starts to clear up a bit more. This person... Have they always lived like this..?

As she slowly regains her senses, the sound of something being cooked can be faintly heard, along with a pleasant aroma that seems to involve some sort of meat.

Well, at least they can prepare hot meals.
The world is starting to resolve itself, but she still can't quite get up yet.

Looking over her upside down is the familiar face of the dog girl from before, looking relieved but clearly trying not to show it by looking serious. "So, you finally woke up, huh?"

"L...Lina?" Syntax tries to ask, legitimately surprised.

"No, I would not think such a thing. Though I am surprised that these are your living conditions." Finally reaching full recovery, she struggles into a sitting position.

"I save your life and you insult my house, classy." She replies, right back to grouchy.

"I apologize, I did not mean to offend... I am used to more extravagant accomodations, it seems. I am just concerned that this is not enough to meet your needs."
