    Ian stared into his campfire’s crackling flames. His eyes drifted close, but he snapped them open. They closed again, and he opened them once more.

    Close, open. Close, open. 

    His head tilted forward as he nodded off. For a moment it looked as if he was going to fall into his campfire, but the sound of voices and horse hooves made him jerk upright. Ian pushed himself off the ground, peered through the brush separating him from the road, and tried to decide whether he should check it out or not. With a shrug, he resolved that he was near the road after all, so of course there’d be random travelers. He was just easing himself back onto the ground when he heard one of them say, “Looks like… a fire?”

    He stiffened. If they were going to approach him, it’d be better if he made the first move, showing them he was not anyone shady. After all, it would make him uncomfortable to find a random guy hunched in the forest. He stood, a little warily, and pushed through the brush. “It’s just my campfire,” he said as he stopped in front of them. “Not a forest fire or anything.”

    Eesh, that was pretty bad, too. Oh well. Also I had no idea what I’m doing, s0..hehe. @wingiby-iggiby @kylie-wingfeather @jasmine @joelle-stone

    Lagoron’s sharp Elvish ears caught the sound of undergrowth being pushed aside. He automatically reached for his bow and a normal arrow.

    A man stepped out in front of him, probably human, but Lagoron couldn’t be sure. His hair was dark with the night, but as Lagoron narrowed his eyes he was pretty sure it would be a golden brown in daylight. He couldn’t be older than twenty human years (?). What was he doing out on his own?

    “It’s just my campfire,” he said as he stopped in front of them. “Not a forest fire or anything.”

    Lagoron murmured a word to Radiance, and she halted with ease. He swung a leg over her bare back and landed lightly on the ground, walking forward until Radiance’s nose was nearly over his right un-quivered shoulder. Scratch that, she had hung her head over it and was blowing warm horsey breath in his face.

    “Galu,” Lagoron said, using the Elvish tongue. This was a good way to test the stranger’s species. “Man i eneth gin?”

    @jasmine

    So, I had an idea, and I wanted to see what you thought of it:

    You said back on the the Wingfeather Site that you knew Oreo in real life. So, if Oreo still wants to do this, maybe she could write the parts for Jason, as well as ideas, and you could post them? Just until Oreo can join of course. What do you think?

    I think that would be awesome! Heh heh, sorry for being gone for so long. The longer I waited the more awkward coming back seemed. But yes, I asked Oreo and she liked the idea. I’ll post her and my post as soon as their ready.

    I AM afraid. I'm glad that I am. That tells me I need to be brave. ~W.M.

    —Post from Oreo:—

    Hey everyone!!!

    I’m so glad that Kylie thought of this idea. It will be nice to be able to work on our story again with you guys.

    I read over what you guys have posted on the story. I like how it is going so far but I do have a couple of questions.

    1. Did Jason disappear, or is he still with the rest of the characters?
    2. Did you guys have a plan for what is going to happen next in the story, or are you still trying to think of what should happen next?

    By the way, I love all of your guys profile pictures.

    I also really like the pictures that you drew of Nora, Arla, Holly, Jason, Lagoron, and Bramber, Kylie.

    WOOHOO!! OREO IS BACK WITH US YAAAS! Well, halfway back with us. Thx for carrying messages, @jasmine!

    And to answer her questions:

    1. Yes, Jason is still here, we just haven’t had  him do too much for fear of overcontrolling your character. 🙂
    2. Eh… not really. We’ve gotten as far as having @mischievous-thwapling’s character owning the third part of the map and joining in on what we’re doing. *shrugs* Now might be a good time for Larawen to show up and say that the Citadel is under attack. Does anyone remember the names of the lead Elves there? It was… Thinon, I think, but IDR his wife’s name. Ah! Or the captain’s. Ah!

    Actually, maybe it was Ellonuial (Elf of Twilight). *shrugs*

    The leaders of the Citadel were Lady Elbereth and Lord Thinon, and the leader who doesn’t get along well with Arla (has Wingiby been on this forum recently?) is Captain Gladion.

    Oreo can read everything we pose but she can’t pose herself. You all probably already know that, lol.

     

    Thx for carrying messages, @jasmine!

    Of course! I’m glad the team is back together again!
