New and returning players are encouraged to give everything a read-over, and as always, staff is happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have!

2/4/2018 — Year 4 is underway, as well as Baraenor's First Anniversary! We have a very special Character Appreciation this time around that lasts all through the month of February, and we need some help compliling pivotal threads for our Year 3 Synopsis.

1/20/18 — It's Winter of Year 3, and that means that the IC year is coming to a close! Expect Hall of Fame nominations to open soon, and be sure to read up on all of the user polls we're using to help continue to fine-tune the task system. We are always looking for more imput and suggestions from our playerbase!

12/1/17 — Summer of Year 3 has steam-rolled its way into existence. As always, contests are being held, links to which can be found riiiiight below these updates.

Creatures have also been allowed onto the site for a price unless you bring them during Character Appreciation Week, so feel free to ask for details if you need more information.

11/4-17 — Another month gone and Baraenor enters into Spring of Year three! 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. Since nobody knew ahead of time, one OOC week will be given to find a home before December health deductions will be made by staff.

9/13/17 — The brand-new PvP system has been officially announced, and is now in effect across Baraenor. Please see this update for more information!

Players may enter with as many characters as they want, so don't forget to register for the chance at some very nice rewards!

8/20/17 — An official site update has been posted here. Some new changes have been made in regards to The Giving Tree, Gem Shops and Tasks so be sure to look it over. We've also introduced Character Appreciation Week and Of the Month Nominations so be looking for those in the future!

8/7/17 — An update has been posted here. If everyone could take the time to read over and input any ideas or opinions it would be greatly appreciated! 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! We've seen several new faces around lately, so thank you to everyone that's been posting our advertisments. Keep it up so we can bring even more new players into our community!

7/12/17 — The Starfall Contest has ended now and the skies have started to return to normal. Congratulations to everyone who won in the OOC or IC contest. =) In other news, Tabs has opted to take a break from Adminship for a little while and relax so if you have any questions feel free to inquire with Jolee or any of the other staff members as well as posting inquiries in the Soundboard forum for questions and suggestions. We will be attempting to go through the site soon and seeing if anything could be improved upon so input is always appreciated.

6/27/17 — The Starfall Contest is quickly drawing to a close, but there's still time to participate and nifty prizes to be won! The guidebook has been updated with all of the newest changes, as well as a few tweaks for clarity after feedback from the playerbase and other observations. You can read more about those here!

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. Staff auditions have also opened up, and interested parties can have a look here at the open positions and how to apply!

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!

04/24/17 — There have been several updates made recently, highlighting tweaks in the fighting system, a task overhaul, gridlines on the map and much more! Check them out here and here for more information. We also have a shiny new Game Development board, where we'll be discussing anything new and exciting with everyone!

03/19/17 — As we move into our third month of being open, we see some accounts going inactive. Make sure that you guys are posting at least once a month to keep characters from falling inactive! And remember, if a character under 1 year goes inactive they will be considered deceased. Keep up the posts, guys!

02/26/17 — Things have been said, and heard! A new update comes on the horizon and with it comes a fighting system that we hope will keep the 'hands off' approach, while remaining fair to everyone involved. You can find it Here!

02/20/17 — To all our lovely members, we provide a brief update to let everyone know that we now have a special forum under Art Corner where we are housing all the wonderful editable line arts that we have been able to get with your gracious donations. These are available for member use only and password protected so if you are wishing to use them please PM Tabs or Jolee in order to get the password. Currently there is only an infant cub line art available, but more will be added as Ale-Tie completes them. =)

02/13/17 — It's been a week since our opening, and we've put out an Update!. In this update, we welcome a new staffer, and two new prides! Don't forget the current contests we have going on! Some will end coming up here soon.

02/07/17 — We have a couple of contests going on right now, Advertising contest which has a few of our breed only (And non purchaseable) pelt colors as prizes. Skinning contest with Gems as prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for a Valentines day Scavenger hunt as well! In the meantime, we'd like to give a HUGE thank you to both Pessy and Vix for donating towards making Baraenor!

If you happen to find any bugs in coding, please report them on this thread.
IC Updates
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.

it was one of those days. y'know. the days where you had nothing to do. ever since she came to Baraenor, Morgan hadn't done really anything memorable. she had since lazed about after she traveled, content to take her time in everything she could do. having no pride but aware of them all the same, she wanted to avoid them. she wasn't the type to play nice without any meaning. loyalty had to be earned. friendships had to bloom. she wouldn't follow just anyone. they had to earn her loyalty. but she also knew some people just expected that, her loyalty. so therefore she wouldn't be joining other felines for a good long while. too fucking bad for them. they didn't have to put up with her sparkling personality. oh well. it wasn't like she got along with people anyway. they were all probably glad they didn't have to put up with her.

Morgan yawned loudly and long. she was currently lazing about, doing nothing like previously stated. she didn't have anything to do. one of the downsides of being a loner. you never lived for anyone but yourself, and when you used up your options it got pretty boring. she almost wished for company. almost. the lull of the afternoon was welcoming though. she could also be totally alone, that was great too. yeah, she could do with some her time. she had spent many months on the road and could use a break. good thing she found this area. it was a welcome respite from the colder climates. it wasn't exactly warm since the chill of winter seeped in all the same, but it was also warmer than most areas she'd been to. the young woman blinked sleepily but refused to put her head down. people could be out there. less than reputable people. she had to keep watch.

let dreams take course

With his mind constantly on the move, Malik decided to travel through the lands of Baraenor, frame bracing itself against the winter weather. In truth, the pale brute was beyond ready for the cold season to be over with- he missed the touching warmth of Summer, and the cold waters that he could swim in when he pleased. These waters, during the Winter, were ones he found a strong distaste to- swearing that they could freeze his tongue off when he merely tried to drink.

He didn't put focus in keeping his movements quiet, merely trekking along with his thoughts going haywire and his body trying to stay warm. It was when the scent of another came to his nostrils that he snapped himself out of his thoughts, head tilting before he searched the lands for the source- a lioness. Ears swiveled forward as he caught sight of the woman from afar, her russet pelt contrasting against the white snow, but molding in with the bark of the trees. Interesting, Malik thought to himself; lips pursing for a single moment before he decided to near her. His face soon came to hold a warm smile, hoping for the best out of this engagement- the last thing he wanted was anything to turn hostile. "Greetings." The word rumbled from his deep tones, light-colored eyes looking forth to her in a friendly way, halting a respectful distance away as he gauged her for her reaction. Please be friendly.

Morgan was not, er, exactly friendly. she wasn't the right person to ask for a good chat. she could be abrasive and sarcastic. maybe that's because she felt awkward in social cues. or maybe she knew she could never hope to fit in normally. however, she could at the very least appreciate when someone was trying to be polite. at the approach of the other, the young woman had twisted her head to stare at him openly as he neared. preparing for the worst was what she did best, yet the man had stopped a respectable distance away from her laying form. he had one of those warm grins and his body language wasn't aggressive. oh well. there goes her attempt at a nap. she pushed herself to all fours, sitting her rump immediately down to face him.

"hey" she replied casually, compared to his mannerisms. she gave him a look over before deciding anything else. her nostrils flared with the scent of many other felines. Morgan remained cautious. she knew this was a pride lion. she had no interest in prides. if the guy was looking to recruit, he'd have to find someone more gullible. she had enough of a time keeping up with her own emotions, never mind sharing another's. or a whole pride of 'em. no, she was more along the lines of keeping her guard up around many people. one on one was fine but... not a bunch. not over three at least. that's when she began to feel more reckless. she tilted her head at the other feline. "you one of those pride lions?"

she knew he was. that had been established. but he didn't know she knew. he didn't know anything about what she thought. and besides, it was better saying that sentence than letting the silence drift on forever. she was just trying to make conversation.

His ears twitched at her reply, her response casual to his own. Still, his smile held true and Malik watched on with polite eyes, glad that she was going to engage in a conversation with him nonetheless. At her question came a low laugh from Malik, before a nod of his head came. "I am indeed." He spoke, eyes turning back to her frame with a small shrug of his shoulders. "I reside as Count to Dorchas Tor." He added, figuring she'd probably be curious.

By her scent Malik knew she didn't belong to a pride, and while he could try and recruit her into Dorchas- that wasn't the reason he wanted to talk with her. "And what about you? Have you found a pride yet?" The tilt in his head returned, curiosity swarming his gaze, though not enough to show it was his only care.

he seemed so proud of his rank that Morgan bit her lip from the tumbling words. like I'm supposed to know what that means she wanted to say but held herself just in time. a count sounded so fucking fancy. like someone with an inflated sense of ego and flamboyant actions. she didn't exactly expect it to be a polite young man, and it was only cause of his continual politeness did she behave. Dorchas Tor, however... she would meet one named Evalyn in a few days that belonged to that place. for now, she had only met this one. and so far he was making a good impression but it still remained that prides always needed new members.

and she was wary of that. Morgan shifted her gaze away from the pale man as he asked, a neutral expression on her face. "no" she told him, though he may have guessed she was a loner by her scent alone "I'm better off alone" the woman added a bit ominously before another addition "besides, it'd be stupid to join one just cause it's there, you know?" she hoped he knew to take the hint and not ask her to join this Dorchas Tor. feeling this would be a long conversation, she sat her rump down to better converse with. "I'm Morgan."

they hadn't introduced themselves despite talking for a few minutes. she decided to take the first step for once.

He wasn't surprised to hear she hadn't found a pride yet- her scent alone was enough for Malik to piece that together, but he'd rather hear it from her own lungs than to merely assume things about her. A brow rose out of interest to her words, listening as she commented on being better off alone- and perhaps she was, if she had such skills. "Isn't winter hard for you, though?" He asked, truly curious; for it had been the driving reason as to why Malik himself joined a pride to begin with, the fear of not making it through winter alone. Given... this woman could of had more training as a youth, whereas Malik hadn't.

"Mhmm, you wouldn't know what you're joining if you do it blindly." He agreed, nodding his head to her. "Always best to get information first." That way, at the very least, one would know what to expect from the pride as a whole, and if it even fit their morals.

Her name soon came as she reclined to her haunches, and Malik followed suite; lowering to his rump as well with a soft smile. "I'm Malik. It's a pleasure to meet you, Morgan." Polite as ever, but his words held truth behind them; he was glad for her company, for it seemed like she was easy to talk to- for now at least. "So what brings you here, to this land? Just traveling?" He asked, hoping to continue the conversation as he didn't want to be alone again just yet.

the guy seemed genuniely interested in whatever crap she had to say, which was saying a lot. she really didn't know why some people chose to socialize with her. she was blunt, rude and she wasn't one of those submissive females. wasn't a proper lady, if truth be told. she didn't say her please and thank yous. she didn't feint interest in stupid people. she took no crap from anyone, and as good as that was for her, she noticed it put people off. so the fact this one was sticking around confused the hell out of her. then again she hadn't exactly scared him off, but ah the day was still young. she could just say something to piss him off and boom! he'd leave. just like all the others.

but hey, at least she had some time before she said something infuriating. "I guess?" she never really noticed how tough it was before. it was something she had been doing for a long time now in her short life. Morgan tilted her head, frowning at mostly herself. "but I only have myself to feed, so it's not like I'm getting hurt bringing down larger prey. one lion is just easier to focus on." she told him the truth, for she'd heard it said by other rogues she'd come across. he even agreed with her opinion on not finding a pride right away, causing an eyebrow to raise. she honestly expected him to go on about how great his pride was.

and then she'd have to tell him no, she wasn't into it.

but he went ahead and introduced himself. Malik. Malik... Malik... it meant king if she remembered correctly. a more Eastern name than most. "its uh nice to meet you too" she tried to sound positive despite her crippling misgivings. no one would talk to you if they knew the real you her mind said. she wanted to scream at her mind for that. "honestly? I found this place by mistake. I didn't know it existed" she rolled her slender shoulders with a hint of amusement in her teal gaze "but I guess I'll stay here until spring comes. I don't know what else to do. too brutal to travel somewhere else right now. what about you, Malik? been here long?"

Her logic made a lot of sense, and Malik was truly interested in hearing it, knowing how she fared through a season like this. After all, she didn't look like she was starving, her body looked quite healthy- so obviously she was doing something right. He found his head nodding slowly along to her words, lips having pursed for a moment as he thought about them. "That makes a lot of sense, actually. I never thought about it like that." He commented, honest for he had always been worried about shelter and food, but given he was a poor hunter his concerns had been very valid. He'd only been able to catch a fish once on his own, that was the biggest hunting feat he had. "Are you a good hunter, then? Or are you just lucky?" A mild tease, his smile lifting on his lips as he looked to her with a small chuckle from his lungs.

He smiled once again at her response to his introduction, and even if her words didn't sound sure- Malik wasn't catching a negative vibe from her. If he had, he would of been respectful to her wishes and left a long time ago, but it seemed they were getting along just well... so what was the rush? He needed more people in his life he could talk to, bond with, surely she did too? At her confession of finding this place by mistake, Malik couldn't help but to laugh aloud, head shaking in amusement. "I'm sure you could of found worse places than this, then. Guess you really are just lucky." A mild tease again, jokingly prodding at her with his words before he listened to her once more. A sheug came from his shoulders, eyes peering at the area around them.

"I was born around here, actually; to a large pride. Things got rough though and I ended up on my own for awhile, I hadn't really been taught anything either so survival was tricky. I think I got laughed at by more mice than I can count when I tried to hunt them." He mused, finding no shame in sharing his failures- after all, if he couldn't make light of them, how was he to move on- to get better? "Kinda how I ended up with Gwyn, the leader of Dorchas. I was on my last leg and well, if not for his help winter really would of eaten me away." Which was why the pale brute was so loyal to Gwyn, so grateful for his help- and so driven to prove his worth.

it was still very odd to her how behaved she was being. but then again there was no need to scream and shout at someone who was just being polite. that made sense. why start a fight when she knew she couldn't really defend herself properly against a larger lion? it was just that survival instinct kicking in. fight, flight or friend. the friend part being well mannered and focused on the conversation instead of going batshit crazy. it was too soon to think of Malik as a friend. she didn't let them very close even if she did have one. she kept them apart from her deeper thoughts. "I think it's just dumb luck at this point" she replied, shaking her head with a rare chuckle "maybe I'm just hunting old, stupid animals. I don't exactly ask them in for a cup of tea when I want them in my belly."

she gave a brief nod, confirming she may just really be lucky after all. it was strange to think that but she could have it worse, this was true. there weren't exactly many dark details in her past but the ones that were made a lasting impression on the woman. "ah, the rare wild native appears then" she smirked at his words. this was the first time she encountered someone who actually was born here. but she would learn the name of Dorchas Tor's leader. Gwyn. the lioness she would meet in a few days would also mention that name. it meant nothing to Morgan, though. Gwyn wasn't her leader. "sounds like you're the lucky one" she hadn't been in the situation of asking for help yet "actually having a leader take you in."

she knew sometimes in winter lions were driven out or turned away for fear of food shortages. she didn't know if Baraenor did that, or if they were totally loyal to those that joined their rank. "but hey, the world is just rough all around" she mused out loud "just because being a rogue works for me, doesn't mean it works for everyone. people got different skills and all that jazz" another roll of her shoulders confirmed the easygoing words. "so I'm guessing you haven't been outside of Baraenor?" he didn't seem like one to travel great distances to her. but Morgan could always be wrong.

He couldn't help but to laugh again when she agreed to it being luck- amusement starting to gleam into his periwinkle eyes. "Well, obviously your methods are working. Perhaps you should teach me them sometime?" He mused, though head tilted to show it was a genuine question; curious if she would. Malik wasn't the best at hunting, regardless on the prey... mice or old creatures, either way he sucked. Morgan seemed nice enough, and perhaps she just would help him... plus it would give him more time with her at the least.

He found his eyes rolling slightly at her comment of his native background, smirking to her slightly; mirroring her expression. "Sounds like something to be proud of when you say it like that." Malik mused, a brow lifting as he chuckled lowly, head shaking slightly before he listened in on her words again. A soft shrug came from his broad shoulders, "I suppose so," He agreed, thinking back to his day on the border of Duskhollow. "It's not without work, though. I'm sure if I was just sitting around, he would of tossed my butt out already." He commented, partly envisioning the sight of him getting thrown out by Gwyn... it sounded quite scary and the pale brute hoped it'd never happen.

"That's true, some people adapt to things better. How long have you been a rogue? All your life?" He grew curious then, head tilting to the side as he tried to pry closer; maybe that's how she fared so well with living on her own, it was all she knew? A low snort left from his maw at her next question, shaking his head. "Only once, and it was because I got lost as a youth when my birth pride disbanded." While it had been a sad time, Malik couldn't help but find the irony in it- he of all people would be that unlucky, to get lost without the knowledge of how to survive. Oh, how twisted his humor seemed to of become... laughing at his own misgivings.

"perhaps" she found herself agreeing with a slow nod of her head. was she going to be seeing more of him? huh, guess she should start calling the guy a friend then. that was totally uncalled for, this whole situation, and yet it came out a positive one. funny how it happens. it must be true what he said; she was lucky. or rather her luck was turning around. it wasn't exactly great before Baraenor though. Morgan didn't exactly play nicely with others but men had a better chance than women at times. it just goes to show she was a tomboy. "it'd be nice to eat something bigger than a meerkat." she conceded. if she was going to show him a few tricks, then they might as well actually hunt together.

it had been too long since she had a hunting partner. "well. I mean... I haven't actually met a native Baraenorian or whatever the hell you guys call yourselves" Morgan told him with a shrug "it'd be stupid to assume you all migrated here this winter just for me, though. I guess there are more foreigners here" new blood equaled less 'pure' bloodlines. she knew some lions had surnames like herself, but the Nox family was never really one to stick close to breeding rules. the 'pure-blooded' families tended to stick close to other purebloods. after a while, you got some diluted blood. like borderline family-marrying-family shit. "guess you're taking a break then if you have time to chat with me" she guessed with a teasing grin "I half expect this Gwyn to charge up to you right now and cuff your head for it."

when he asked her about her status as a rogue, Morgan frowned despite herself. "basically all my life" she told him shortly at first "I never had a pride. it was always just me and my mother" no father in the picture, but plenty of other men to support the two females if they needed it. her mother's husband hadn't taken too kindly to her having an affair before they married and left when he found out. the only real 'father' in her life before she knew the truth; it was always assumed he was related by blood. "and no, she isn't here" the woman added with a roll of her eyes. the older lady could drop dead for all she cared "I have no idea where she is."

she was glad for the opportunity to take the focus off of her though. she didn't want to say more about her past than what was common courtesy to ask. "so did you meet those laughing mice when you got lost or did that come after?" mischief clear in her teal gaze, Morgan snickered in good humor "but seriously, being lost as a cub? brutal... at least you survived, so you're not totally as worthless as you think."

His smile grew when she spoke on helping him learn, to share her methods with him. He hadn't really though she'd consider it- but the fact she did caused his hopes to soar lightly, against his better judgement. "Woah now, if I couldn't catch mice that well, we may want to stick to meerkats for a bit. Unless you want to see me make a fool of myself?" He spoke with an amused tone, shaking his head at her as he could just imagine it all happening- him tripping himself up trying to chase a deer, or him getting injured by some goat. It'd be entertaining in the least, she'd get a laugh out of it for sure.

"Baraenorians? Baranorans... Barions, i'm not sure actually." He spoke, tongue rolling off random names of what natives may of been referred to here, it actually hadn't been something he thought about before. "Eh, lets just go with natives. Too much of a tongue twister." He chuckled, before his gaze focused on hers and his ears twitched to her words. "I don't know, I mean...I could see a lot of lions migrating for you. Maybe they saw you from afar and hoped some of your luck would rub off on them." He teased, a bit more boldly this time but part of him couldn't help it, he liked that he was able to joke around with her, it was something he rarely ever got to do; and it was a nice change. A welcomed change.

When she brought up Gwyn, Malik's head peered over his shoulder as if to play along with her words, letting out a 'hot' breath. "YOu're right, I better hide behind you in case he comes looking for me." He mused out playfully, but his bodice lifted and scooted closer to hers, plopping back down in the snow behind her frame, truly using her as a shield for a threat that didn't exist- he couldn't help but to let out a few laughs. The topic of her life as a rogue came, and Malik listened in with a keen interest, impressed with her. Life as a rogue was hard, but her whole life? That showed strength over all. His lips pursed to her topic of her mother and Malik thought better than to ask her on it, it wasn't his business anyways to pry for that. "Maybe she's chasing some old meerkats too." He shrugged, hoping to make light of the topic rather than to let the mood fall down.

At her question Malik let out a low huff, playful of course, before his shoulder attempted to nudge into her side playfully. "You're wounding my ego." He pouted for a brief second, before he laughed and found his focus to return. "Yeah, it wasn't the best time. I'm surprised I even made it back here, to Baraenor." Which was the full truth, he had expected to be lost forever- or to die, and either one sounded horrible to him.

Her last comment brought a interest to his eyes, and a grin slowly etched to his lips as he peered to her. "Oh? Finding worth in me already? How sweet of you." Another tease that fell from his lips, unable to contain himself anymore.

a sort of 'pfft' escaped her jaws at his words. Morgan grinned for once. "aw, c'mon. meerkats taste so gamey. and they're just waiting to be caught. like they have a death wish. like please eat us, Morgan!" at least mice were smart. couldn't they navigate mazes or something? she usually got lost finding her way back to the same place. she puffed out her chest in false confidence at herself "with my tricks and tips, you have a chance at something as big as an elephant. pretty soon people will call you Malik the Great." it was even rarer for her to find someone that put up with her teasing. sometimes people could be so sensitive. ah, maybe she was hoping they could be friends after all. it wouldn't be too terrible.

she gave a nod. Baraenorians sounded like the correct term, but it was so long. she felt her tongue twist and slap around in her mouth just thinking about speaking it again. Morgan snorted though at his flattery. " or maybe they thought I was a puddle of mud and wanted to see if any warthogs were there" she shot back with an amused grin, never really taking compliments well. hey, at least she got a fun sentence out of it, right? she really did look like a pool of mud or dirt cause of her fur. that was just being sincere. Malik suddenly grew closer, and it took all her nerve to remain where she was and play along. she usually didn't like people being so close to her without reason but she could appreciate that he was at least trying to make her laugh. "I don't know what I can do against some scary king lion, but ah, the confidence is inspiring" she mused, holding her head up higher.

"are you kidding? I had to be the one to hunt for her. the poor woman couldn't even track without help. maybe she tripped over a meerkat?" she humored him despite her anger toward her mother. she didn't want to bring down the conversation. and it felt good to get it out. it was also true. her mother couldn't do anything without some form of assistance. namely from men. no, she sat on her fat ass and barked orders. but Malik didn't need to know that. at least it had given the young woman some practice in the rogue life. Morgan huffed, turning her head away from him. "you aren't completely boring. at least you can take a joke" she told him bluntly "so I guess I'll keep you around to amuse me." she gave a confirming nod.

They were getting along better than he had expected, but Malik was beyond glad for it. "You and I must be thinking of different Meerkats, cause that's never happened for me." He argued, finding a distaste growing for the damned species- how could they be so easy for her to hunt, and not for him? Was he that bad at catching game? Probably.

"Malik the Great. You know what? I'm gonna hold you to that. I like the sound of it." He mused with a low laugh, his grin growing along his maw as he thought it over. How comical it would be, but first he'd have to at least be able to catch something... he hoped she had a lot of patience. His eyes rolled at her comment of comparing herself to mud, "Best damn puddle of mud i've ever seen then." He shrugged, before a laugh edged its way out of his mouth again, unable to contain himself. He wasn't the best at flirting, and calling a girl a pretty pile of mud, well, probably wasn't the way to go about it. Oh well.

"We can hope he's afraid of mud? That could get him to turn around." He suggestion in response to the topic of Gwyn, grinning wide as he continued to be playful. Of course, though, Malik knew Gwyn wasn't afraid of anything and Malik would probably be the one scared shitless if he did show up like that. "Wow! Meerkats beg you to kill them, and your mom gets the luck of tripping over them. Meanwhile I get nothing but a mouthful of dirt. Doesn't sound very fair to me." He complained, grumbling a bit and yet the amusement still gleamed in his eyes at it all.

She turned blunt and Malik couldn't help but to laugh, growing even more comfortable with Morgan. "Your own personal comedian then, eh? I'm honored." Despite him knowing it was all jokes and play, Malik couldn't help but truly be happy she was able to take it as well, and he could already see a great friendship between them, one he knew he'd favor over all.

she scoffed, finding the subject both amusing and irritating like he did. "maybe they have a We Have to Screw Up Malik's Hunts club?" she mused, sliding back on her hindlegs to ponder this with a thinking concentration. the thought of meerkats tripping the large pale lion when he tried was a bit funny "I guess I have to infiltrate and break it up. we can't have you starving" she found herself chuckling again at his words and shook her head. "we'll start with Malik the Meerkat Hunter, then. pretty soon you'll be lining your den with their fur." he had better confidence about her skills than she did. all Morgan did was survive up until now. that's all she could ever hope to do.

it was a lonely life but one she valued a bit more than others. at his attempts of flirtation, Morgan glanced at him a bit before doubling over in a manic laughter. "if you find dirt attractive, I guess?" she usually brushed off compliments and flirtations, but his little sentence had her flustered all the same. she didn't really know why. "I mean, if he's one of those types to flinch at a dirty spot on his fur... maybe I should just hit him over the head with a rock and hope for the best?" she rolled her shoulders again, this time a bit wildly and relaxed. "pfft, at least you don't get this mouthful of dirt" she shot at him, taking a chance herself at... attempting to flirt. "I bet I taste horrible."

continuing to be flustered, she quickly added more words. gods, she didn't want him to get the wrong idea. but there she had tried her hand at some form of... whatever the fuck that had been. hiding her embarrassment came easier than her flirts though. "well, I guess it isn't fair to keep you all to myself" Morgan pressed "I'm sure the ladies love a good jester" and some men too, she guessed. to each their own! "it wouldn't be really kind toward my fellow gender" but fuck them. she had a friend now. yes, a friend. someone that actually took her jokes and shot some back. "but then again... personal comedian sounds promising."

Thinking about it, Malik wouldn't put it past the meerkats to do something like that to him. "Pesky creatures, setting my life up for failure." He grumbled, eyes rolling at the thought of them; but finding it all far too amusing still. "Ah, my savior! However will I repay you?" Dramatic he became, trying to hold the expression before a laugh burst from his chest. "Us against the Meerkats, I think that's fair odds. We'll show them whose boss." A firm nod, liking the idea of getting more pelts from them, even if he highly doubted he'd do that good at it- but hey, he'd still try!

The topic changed to Malik's comment on her, a poor attempt at flirting, and with a blow to his ego did her laughs hit his ears. His pelt heated slightly but Malik couldn't help but to laugh with her, even if it was at himself- he didn't have experience with this sort of stuff. "Yep. Very attractive." He snorted, shaking his head at himself and how much of a fool he already made himself out to be. Good job, Malik.

He laughed again when Gwyn's name came around and the thought of throwing rocks at him was amusing, although he knew they'd both be in deep trouble if it ever happened. He shrugged, rolling his head slightly with a smirk. "Hoping for the best seems to be our growing motto, huh?" He pointed out, gaze looking to find hers once again with an amused gleam. Her next words took him aback and Malik found himself staring at her, blinking once as he himself grew flustered- say something, you fool! "I mean, we could always test that theory out." He finally threw out, not wanting to look like an idiot by just staring at her and gawking. Yet his own words did little to aid him and Malik felt embarrassment crawling up his spine, eyes adverting for a brief moment in hopes to find some dignity in himself again. She was attractive, though, he couldn't deny that- and she had a great personality. He could be a bit hopeful, couldn't he?

Shaking his head slightly Malik looked back to her with a playful pout, having liked the idea of her keeping him to herself. "I beg to differ, my luck with ladies is about as poor as it is with hunting." Which was true, his game sucked and well, he was already making a fool of himself here with her. "Your personal comedian it is then. That doesn't make you my boss, does it?" He mused, pretending to act like her bossing him around would be the worst; but in reality Malik wouldn't mind either way, at this point he'd probably do whatever she wanted just to prove he wasn't a complete fool.

"first we gotta corner one..." Morgan drawled, leaning forward as if whispering a great secret "or do a stake out and catch them in the act. then I can blackmail them into joining their group" hiding Malik and his pale fur was going to be a challenge though. she could at least blend in with some brown meerkats. though, meerkats? really? they were talking about meerkats. that was so random. how did this even start? bonding over meerkats of all things. it was odd, sure, but hey it worked. he was funny and he had a tongue on him. he could be humorous and take her poor taste in jokes. and lowkey, he was handsome. but it was way too soon to think those things. "hmmm" she paused, leaning back "all you have to do to thank me is help me bring down the meerkat empire. then it will be one less evil in the world."

Morgan's turn to be heated again. she chuckled awkwardly and if she could raise a paw to her head and rub it, she would. sure, people had tried to flirt with her before... but she usually shrugged it off as basic compliments and wanting to use her up and dump her. she mused over ignoring it again, but found she couldn't exactly. "well, you aren't so bad yourself" instead she said "I-I mean... you aren't ugly or nothing. I'll just shut up now" she replied hurryingly, the russet of her coat hiding her eternal fluster. "what?" his sentence confused and embarrassed her more. Morgan stared in shock as if not believing his words to be true. this may be moving too fast for a girl like her. she nudged his shoulder, trying to cover it up with humor "I bet you say that to all the mud puddles."

he was just a guy, a total stranger... (a friend though?) so she didn't really know him that much. for all she knew, he did say that to all the 'attractive' mud puddles. attractive... her being attractive? that was even more confusing. surely there were prettier lionesses for him to pay attention to? she didn't call him out on it though. "w-well, I'm a lady. and you're doing fine, Malik" Morgan instead opted to give him a bit of confidence. she puffed her chest out again. "boss. master. overlord. any of those would do" she told him with a nod "but I guess boss doesn't sound that bad" she gave a rare, very very rare, wink of her teal eyes at him. "so uh" she paused again "a hunting lesson, huh? when do you want to do it?" was she already making plans to see him again?

you bet she was.

let dreams take course

Their game plan for 'conquering' the meerkats was getting even more amusing for Malik, and while it was strange to talk about... it was almost suiting for them? "Alright, so stalk them, catch one, blackmail them, then take them down?" Malik repeated, making sure he got the plan right. Gods, it sounded like such an odd plan, but hey- if it made him better at hunting who cared? He found himself chuckling at the idea, unable to hold back his amusement.

He could see that there was an awkward feel in the air, both of them having flustered themselves; and Malik's dignity very well had been smashed on the ground before him. Her words heated his frame more and Malik gave her a smile, finding it cute how she stumbled over her words with him. "Well, thank you..." He replied, still trying to find his own words after making a fool of himself. "Oh, totally. Cause' i've met so many mud puddles." A bit of sarcasm came forward, though a grin bloomed on his face when she nudged at his shoulder, a chuckle leaving from his maw. Good, they could cover up their awkward flirting with jokes and laughs; that eased him up some more.

He looked to her then, her words reaching his ears again and Malik found himself staring to her once again. Was she... complimenting his flirting? Oh how this was confusing Malik, the poor boy had no experience with this type of stuff. "How comforting, i'm glad my efforts are paying off for you Mud." He teased, deciding that he was going to stick her with that nickname- he liked it, and he liked that it came from their joking as well. She gave a wink with her next words and Malik found himself staring, again, marveled at it for a moment before he snapped out of it with a small roll of his eyes, playing it off as if he hadn't been effected. "Alright then, boss, what are you doing tomorrow? Waging war on the underground mouse society?" Because after all, she couldn't go after the meerkats yet- that was their goal together... as silly as it was.

it was endearing to fine someone that had a more, she wanted to say innocence?, about them. she'd met so many assholes in her travels that it had gotten so old. you could fling a dead meerkat - hah - and hit some prideful, egotist and sexist asshole. his little stumbles as well were cute, and covered up the fact she was so very awkward at this sort of thing. it was amazing how well they got along but she didn't want to have any ideas so soon. or at least she tried not to. while he had hope, Morgan had anticipation she would somehow screw this up. and she didn't exactly want him to leave. so, he was okay in her books. that was the short of the answer because the long answer was too complicated for her. "yeah, take em down" she agreed "expose their crimes for all to see. that's what they get for messing with Malik and Morgan."

she gave another 'pfft'. oh boy, the ammunition between them was sparking. it was quite rare to find someone who went along with her silliness. she could be serious any time, but joking around and letting her guard down? that was something almost alien to her. "well, I mean. most lions are brown" she pointed out with an arched brow as she tilted her head to him "except for you, that is. you're a bit pale. maybe you really aren't catching any dinner. you need some color" she paused again, scrunching her face as she stared at his coat "nah, I like it. it suits you." she hadn't ever met a pale lion before. especially a blue merle one. it did really suit him. not because it was handsome, but because it was like a shock amongst the naturals.

"well, Blue" she shot back with a sneer "I guess I could change my plans. the life of a rogue is a tough one. so many people to meet. so many things to do totally alone. it won't kill me to make time for you" her tone had taken a dramatic mourn as she sighed. "tomorrow it is. meet me... at the jungle" the foliage there could block some of his light colorings and make him easier to blend in. there was also so many animals there that weren't hibernating due to the warmer climate. easier to hunt, easier to find. "I like to sleep in, so make it the afternoon." she added. rising to her paws, she decided it was time to let the man get some rest before their big hunt tomorrow. if his king needed him, he couldn't spoil his afternoon.

but was it the afternoon even? it had faded to an orange-ish light, the evening trying to settle in as the sun went down. they had been talking and teasing for that long. "I think we spent enough time lazying about though. hurry back before Gwyn and the others miss you, Malik" she didn't exactly want to him to go but she realized he also belonged to a pride. he couldn't very well chat with her into the night. he had a warm den to go to, friends and allies to be with. and Morgan had to find a spot to sleep. that was a big effort. she gave him a more genuine smile this time, though. not forced at all. "it was good to meet you. remember; afternoon at Naru Jungle. don't be late!" she added, turning to leave if he didn't stop her.

He gave Morgan nods, showing her he was listening to her words and that their 'plan' was flowing through his head. "Malik and Morgan; what a powerful duo we'll make." He mused, though part of him liked their names together, it was interesting- and part of him couldn't help but to wonder...

"Tan, actually. Most are tan... or blonde?" He found himself correction her with a wide grin, eyes twinkling with the amusement of it. He pretended to be hurt by her words of his color, "You aren't throwing any mud on this amazing pelt." He defended, though he found himself laughing at his own words and pretend confidence. However, when she did really compliment him, Malik felt his ego rise up a bit; had he got some of his dignity back? A girl liked his appearance? Sure it was just his coat color- but hey, it was a win in his books. Probably one of his firsts.

After he gave her a nickname, he wasn't surprised when she threw one right back at him. He rolled his eyes slightly before listening to her words, nodding slowly. "Ah, i'm so grateful you're willing to move things around for me." He mused, jokingly, but on the inside Malik was far beyond excited to see her again. Tomorrow, at the jungle, in the afternoon... Malik repeated it a million times through his head, giving her a nod with a wide smile, this time just as genuine as hers. "Alright alright, i'll get to going." He reluctantly rose to his fours, dreading the fact he did have to leave- he was having too much fun joking around with her. His eyes watched her frame as she began to walk off, a smile still on his lips and a soft laugh coming from his lungs as she turned back around to remind him yet again. "Don't get lost, Mud!" Malik called after her, waiting a few more moments to see her leave before his own frame turned to take his exit, mind spinning with everything that had just happened... Tomorrow afternoon, Naru Jungle.

Had they made a date?
