despite their propensity for adopting troll offspring, you’re not actually sure if carapacians adhere to the quadrant system or not. maybe they have their own weird set of matchmaking heiroglyphs like everyone else here seems to. either way its probably best to make tracks before getting dragged into the third party mediator quadrant again.
Prompt 16: Crane - FFXIV Write 2021 Character: Talan; mentions of @gorgagne-viperidae‘s Crane, sideways mentions of Caedh and Idristan. Timeline: This prompt takes place just after Realignment.
One hand lifted from where he lay, isolated, in one of the trees in the Grove. Reached up towards the stars that sparkled all around the space. Towards branches that were dappled with stardust. Paradise. It should bring him solace. Had done so before.
He hadn’t slept in a bed last night. Regardless of the protestations of the Prince, and his Knight. Upset. He wanted his quiet isolation, to run through the noisy, churning thoughts in his head. But despite the safety that the Grove offered, he wanted to be anywhere else. He was hiding in solitude, from a truth he worried about acknowledging. That with every passing day, he wanted less and less to become Talia again.
That would change. Certainly. Eventually. He would miss her. Miss the person he had been. But for now, in the wake of such awful words, he wanted nothing to do with it. With the Dusk who was Caedh’s princess. With the woman who was everyone’s friend. With the demons speaking in his head. Thoughts, really, were so much worse than reality sometimes.
She was more than just a name, wasn’t she? But he had been given so many others, hadn’t he? By different people. Bore so many names, nicknames, things that she treasured. That he treasured still.
Onee-san. Firecracker. Akai-tori. Princess. Evening Star.
He had been offered that one once, in a land surrounded by levin, with a man who wore Elias’ face. He would take her away. He would take even her nightmares. The name that Crane had offered her. Had chosen for her.
He shifted unsteadily in the branches, and tried to banish the thought from his mind. To quell the dark voice kicking around its whispers in his head. Sometimes, names were just words without substance. Sometimes, curiosity was a dangerous thing.
He dropped down from the branch, and started walking. Wakefulness was better than slumber, even in a place he couldn’t dream.
Maybe he worried what he’d invite if he tried.
