Sid, great introduction into the thread. Nothing wrong with that post at all and HEY you got some money in your pocket. Be careful, Aramir might need to "borrow" it to pay for the ladies dresses!!! :D

Again, I will kick start Fionavar no later than Friday.

WHEEEEE. I love it when we have new posts.

Robin, it seems I assumed what the muse would like to do.
Eilathen has declined Gwaeryn's offer; there is a strong feeling on his part that Eagles are not to be ridden like horses but also this sense of doom. In history Eagles have only carried heroes (which Eilathen is not) in their dire need and it would be sacrilege to him to ride Gwaeryn at this time. Thought I'd explain the process that I went through as I tried to rewrite this.

The muse has it her way and I have learned in the years gone by that you cannot go against the muse without consequences. I tried once I wanted one thing to happen and forced it despite the fact that the muse was steering it another way and I ended up killing the story entirely. Had to trash everything I wrote and start from scratch.

I will not kill this story ;).

That being said you can see where I was going with my original post, which was towards helping Robin with his sword ;)

Sid, nice intro... Welcome on board :D

Lovely, lovely posts, you guys!

Sid, excellent intro. :)

I'd like to put a Geli post up, with any luck tomorrow.

Of course, Gwaeryn is different. Robin wasn't a hero when they met, but they share a special bond. And Geli is maginificent, (except on Tuesdays, when she's incredible.) Great post, Eari! And you could have met Robin if you liked.

Welcome Sid! :)
Great posts everyone! :D

Rwhen, what about a joust? The workers could be setting up for a morning tournament and the clowns and fire eaters could be running away the show mocking the knights and nobles tonight before the event starts.

Very Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein... :) It could be one of the qualifying rounds happening around all the lands before the main event in Minas Tirith. Maybe a semi-distant member of the royal family stationed in the North would show up? ;) :D

I had time for a post, Eari, before I left for work. I forgot about that. Gwaeryn understands all too well. He will bear the elf on one journey, and one alone. Unless at some unforseen great need.

My pleasure rwhen ;).
Laesha is getting excited about the prospect of that commotion :D :D... and still holding Seldo's and Fio's hands I believe ;)

Btw Lith, you asked a little while ago how old she was and I indicated I believed she was 16. Well I re-read most of the thread a few days ago and I can confirm. She is 16 ;) ;) going on 17 (very Sound of Music :P :P)

Postby Melwa » Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:22 pm

Hello, all! I'm considering jumping into this fair - what's the main event we're trying to shape?

I haven't formed my character's background all that much I know some things:

As my Alliance banner indicates, I am of the house of Thingol. Beren and Luthien are my uncle and aunt. A younger brother of Luthien wandered northeast, found a human village, fell in love with a girl there, and settled, becoming the village storyteller. Those were my parents. I knew Beorn when he was growing up, because we lived in the same village. I am a shape-shifter, like he is, but I become a large panther. I am serious on the inside, (that's the elven side) but I'm not very good at letting that side show (the being raised among humans effect - think Spock but backwards.), so I appear very playful. I got the wandering bug from my father, so I set off on my own when the orcs began seriously invading the nearby mountain peaks.

Welcome Melwa. We are on our way to Gondor for an "Expected Party" to celebrate 100 years from the fall of The One Ring/Sauron. It is going to be a party of great magnificence or so we hear.

There is no set time for this to end...so if you would like to jump in, go ahead. I would imagine you would have to be the GREAT GREAT grand niece if you keep the same charrie.

We would love to have you join us.

And yes...you folks can go ahead and shoot me now. I am woefully late on getting up the promised next post. But I am getting there.....life and other 'stuff' ... you know.

:D

Good to see you Sil ! :D

Finally the mystery post, rwhen! Great one! :D :clap:

Just a question. How do I "get into" the band? Being shy, it's a bit difficult for Lari to move first. And he'll never try something as desperate as using force to rob people. :)

Sid, you are going to have to "bump" into someone....doesn't really matter who. How would any of us know that you would want to join us? That is how it happened for all of us. I started with just me and Shaggydog....everyone else "found" us sort of.

One way is you can "overhear" us talking about going to The Expected Party and then mention you are going the same way and would like to hook up. Another would NOT to be what did you say "using force to rob people"...but maybe helping them out of a situation? Seems that Laesha and Fiona have been dragged into a darkened tent...Seldo going for help.

I tried to leave it open for CR, Geli, Aramir, You, Seldo, Gwaeryn or Eilathen OR even Tyggies to "see" what is happening and if they want do something about it.

Either way, after this little sidetracking we did, we will be back on the road again.

Thank you Rwhen. :D And just a note, if you don't mind. Lari's too shy to speak openly with strangers. So when introducing he would say his name as Sidhlarion or Sidhlarion Valenar. And not Lari, his nickname. :) His introvertness is one of his man attributes.

And sorry for the big-ish post guys. Just wanted to let everyone 'know' my character a bit better. :D Also, apologies for my language which I guess is a bit 'rough'. :)

Hey Sid. Good post.

First, you used "Sid" in your post you might want to alter that. Unless you are Sid as well as Lari.

Also...you "quoted" what I wrote using Lari. If you prefer Sidhalarion...that is fine with me, but you will need to alter that and Have Fionavar using it too....if you don't then I will leave my post as Lari. Otherwise it is too inconsistent.

Last...I am not a stickler for these sorts of things. I will remember to call you Sidhalarion at your request.

Hey Rwhen, corrections made.
And it's okay if Fionavar (and others) call him 'Lari'. Only on the first intros Lari usually states his formal name but not if he's grown used to the company's members.

Lith, am in a week that won't allow me to write before Saturday or Sunday but the muse has been prodded so we'll see whether she leaves me be. I'll be taking my laptop to work today since I have to be there for 11am and until 11pm, so I probably will allow myself an hour break to write ;) :)

Ok so my original post got erased because I had a problem with my computer and I had typed it in here instead of using word before posting. Hence the delay; spent part of my weekend trying to recover the message until I realized I never typed it in word :P :roll: :doh:

Sorry CR I had your character be the one falling; to be honest there was an hesitation between yours and mine but there is something so solid and unshakable in Eilathen that it felt totally weird to have him fall though it was a very tempting thing :P ;). Hope you can forgive me this one ;)

Wow. Great posts Lith and Eari. :D

Just a quick note. And I am really really sorry if I've gotten everyone confused. :( When you are narrating, 'Lari' is fine. Only when the characters speak, say Laesha speaks with Lari she'd summon him as "Sidhlarion". That's till he gets close to everyone.

Did that make any sense? Apologies.

Eari!! Thanks for the lovely post. I think you did just fine, I too can't see Eilathen falling...he would stand as unmovable as a mountain I should think. ;)

Sid. I think we get it. It all gets easier as we get to know each other more.

So Sil? Frelga? CR? Did you want to make a final post at the fair before I pull all of us out to the road again???

Just say the word.

Sid...Page 1, first post. Fionavar has her own horsie...Caloo who has been with us the whole way.

Maybe a better way to end your last post would be for Fiona to say something like "Oh, I have a friend here too, would you like to meet her?" As Caloo would be in the stables too. She is not larger than a small pony really, but she carries all of Fiona's personal items and some food for the troop as well.

Other than that, great post.

And still before we move forward I want to give Sil, CR and/or Frelga a chance to chime in please???? Next week we can move forward if we don't have any other response.
