Samiyah tells Ghazkull (in common), 'Well, I mean, if you were fighting Venom or walking a tightrope or composing a letter or talking to someone important, I wouldn't want to distract you. So I wasn't sure if you were .. distractable at the moment. I could feel something, but wasn't sure what was going on.'.

(Asterius makes some private comments about Sparhawk's cute butt, and something else about adoring fans, and maybe a little bit about signing the breastplates of female warriors...)

DarkClaw tells Asterius, 'Just don't let me find out.'.

Asterius prays, 'Uh oh'.

DarkClaw tells Asterius, 'I might turn them into food.'.

Asterius prays, 'Not even if I shared?'.

DarkClaw tells Asterius, 'Well...that's a different story.'.

Asterius winks suggestively at DarkClaw.

(Asterius sighs to himself, followed by some _completely_ inappropriate discussion about his first encounter with Miss Sabella, the &^#$&^#^ tease.)

DarkClaw ftells, 'Do you want to read the story on my magicked eaten ball?'.

Asterius prays, '*grin* sure!'.

DarkClaw ftells, 'It's the only one in existence that I know of.'.

DarkClaw gives Asterius the magicked eaten ball.

Asterius examines the Magicked Eaten Ball:
The Magicked Eaten Ball sits here.

This is the Magicked Eaten Ball. How do you know? Well, that is a good question. You just do. Perhaps it's the magic.

This quite heavy dark oblong ellipsoid is approximately the size of an adult human skull, and very smooth to the touch. The coloring is blotchy, and varies between puke green to almost black. It is not particularly attractive.

Upon examination, its weight is probably due to the liquid you can feel sloshing around when you move the ball around. You could possibly crack this thing open, if so inclined.

Where did it originate? What is its history?

Asterius looks closer into the depths of the Ball:
The Magicked Eaten Ball was first "discovered" by Mard, the self-styled "Creative with Words and Writings Man." It is said that his moniker was his best work. Mard was once invited by his friends on an expedition to a dragon's lair. Okay, he wasn't so much "invited," as he decided to just tag along, and the other members of his party were not "friends" so much as a small group of adventurers that did not initially want anything to do with Mard. After spending time with him (whether they wanted to or not), they relented, and allowed him to trail along behind them. The way the party saw it, having Mard along might be of benefit. After all, they were off to find gold and other riches, and unfortunately, "dragon's lair" often comes equipped with a real, live, deadly DRAGON. Mard was always so happy, talkative, and loud. He would make the perfect diversion (and snack) for any dragon in the area. Mard was oblivious, however. Mard felt like he had friends, and that he and his friends were on a grand adventure.

Unfortunately, Mard was as clumsy in deed as he was in word. As he was setting up camp some distance away from the rest of the party (they told him it was for "security"), Mard fell. And landed, with a splat, into a large mound of smell that was only noticeable when he was enmeshed within it.

As he struggled to free himself, he came across a large, smooth, roundish object, which he pulled out with him.

Unfortunately, Mard was no longer suitable even as decoy, and sent him back to town. Just as well: the rest of the ill-fated party was eaten by the dragon.

Mard took to research, and eventually discovered the origin of the ugly thing he had discovered.

He found that dragons sometimes enjoy eating magical items. It's something of a delicacy for them, evidently. And even though a dragon's digestive system is very very efficient, there is some waste, particularly when magic is consumed. The... result... of the magic item consumed was the funny shaped ball.

With this discovery, Mard had an opportunity to use his art of words, and name the object. He came up with "Magicked" -- it was a magical item consumed by the dragon; "Eaten" -- the magic item was eaten; "Ball" --though not actually round (and thus, not a ball), but close enough.

Behold: The Magicked Eaten Ball!

And so, Mard also added "figure outerer of things" to his self-proclaimed
list of titles.

Asterius laughs.

DarkClaw grins evilly.

DarkClaw ftells, 'It was gifted to me by Odie.'.

Asterius chuckles.

DarkClaw stops using (Ogre Aura) (Singing) an Oook Fan Club button.
DarkClaw gives you (Ogre Aura) (Singing) an Oook Fan Club button.

Asterius looks at the button:
This button bears a distinctly Ogreish aura, and the image of our favorite bard.

Every *true* Oook fan should have a button like this! It pulses with a crimson
glow, rather similar to the food stains that color the infamous bard's clothes,
and has a vaguely haphazard look to its construction. A slight odor seeps from
the button, reminiscent of the swamps that surround the base of Skull Top. Its
an entirely Ogre-ish sort of smell: a little grimy, a mite bit earthy, a tad...
overpowering? But the neatest thing about this button is that it seems to be ..
singing?

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'hmm'.

Asterius frowns.?
Asterius tries to figure out the trick to understanding its song.
Asterius shakes it gently.

DarkClaw grins evilly.

Asterius starts to lick it, then thinks better.

Asterius prays, 'I vaguely recall one or two of the things she made often had hidden symbols or words to trigger them'.

DarkClaw says, 'I think she trapped his vocal essence inside somehow.'.

Asterius starts and almost drops it as a ghostly song rises from the button:
The songs seem to fade in and out of audible range, teasing your senses...
.
'Them say them silly elfies, them make the bestest stuff,'
'All frilly with them laces, and poofy with them fluff,'
'But us ogres know much better, me have tried it out me-self,'
'The bestest stuff from elfy-land am stuff what made of elf!'
.
'Dream back, we of Sealer, dream back, through the Age,'
'Remember that of then so we can speak with voices sage,'
'As we guide lost souls in this life and all the rest,'
'Ever-mindful of the lore, ever-mindful of the Test.'
.
'Demons dropping from the sky,'
'Some them crawl and some them fly,'
'But them all have a thing the same,'
'Them all went SQUISH when Lanfear came!'
.
'Seek it, track it, bring it down, Find it, learn it, teach the ground,'
'Sacrifice the greatest thing, Of these acts the bards will sing.'
'Sets of tasks each chosen true, Lessons waiting those that do,'
'Tested at each step in turn, Driven by a soul that burns.!'
'Honor those who do prevail, Learn from those who try but fail,'
'Choice is always yours alone, Consequences sure as stone.'

.. to hear more... find the Ogre Bard at his next performance!

Asterius snickers at the first song.

DarkClaw says, 'The Elfy zs'.

DarkClaw says, 'Song rocks!'.

DarkClaw says, 'My fave.'.

Asterius nods his head.

Asterius chuckles.

DarkClaw says, 'You should see the whole thing.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'there are more verses somewhere?'.

DarkClaw hands Asterius a mystic scroll, and waits (to his thinking) extremely patiently while he sounds out the words.

DarkClaw grins evilly.

Asterius snickers.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Elf stews all around! Watch out, elf ears may still be sharp'.

Asterius mumbles as if his tongue is injured, 'Waiter! There's an ear in my soup!'

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'on second thought, it's possible the firewater has not completely worn off...'.

DarkClaw laughs.
DarkClaw sighs loudly.

DarkClaw says, 'Was trying to find one I had written but can't.'.

Asterius comforts her.

Samiyah tells Asterius (in common), 'Oh. Well, it's dangerous to taunt a Kindred with blood, everyone knows that. '.

Samiyah tells Asterius (in common), '*carefully* So... my Bonded greeted you earlier, but you ignored him. Is that because his Maker is mad at him?'.

Asterius tells Samiyah (in minotaur), 'Oh dear... I'm sorry I suspect I missed it...'.

Samiyah tells Asterius (in common), '*with some relief* I'm glad.'.

Samiyah tells Asterius (in common), 'He is the world to me, and it saddens me when things are awry with his Maker.'.


Of Things Sanguinna


DarkClaw pulls her legs up against her chest and wraps her hands around her knees.

Asterius shakes his head and blinks, as if coming back from some far off place.

Asterius tilts his head.

DarkClaw says, 'Have you ever visited the Mother?'.

Asterius removes a pair of chain mail gloves.
Asterius runs his hand carefully down her ankle.

Asterius shakes his head, 'I don't think so'

DarkClaw sighs at having asked such a question, watching the movement of his hand.

DarkClaw says, 'Of course you haven't...you are newly embraced. And I doubt Lestat would put up with your presence this soon.'.

Asterius frowns.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Jealous type?'.

DarkClaw sits down and thinks deeply.
DarkClaw says, 'He is...territorial. Aggressive in nature.'.

Asterius nods his head.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'That's what I figured'.

DarkClaw says, 'And much older and stronger.'.

Asterius nods his head.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I'll just have to get stronger, without hopefully getting too much older'.

DarkClaw says, 'Unfortunately, both he and Ybarra are...'.

(A quiet pause)

Asterius clear his throat quietly, 'you were saying about Ybarra?'

Asterius ftells, 'A pleasure'.


Asterius runs down to the guild...

Ghazkull tells Samiyah (in common), 'He is struggling with his change, give him some time.'.

Samiyah tells Ghazkull (in common), 'well, he'd better not be thinking of making stew of you. That's all I can say. I already had to tell him I was Bonded and he couldn't.. er.. well. Nothing came of that. So.'.

Asterius ftells, 'Yes, Milady. I wouldn't dream of it. I don't even know the recipe'.

Something Scandalous


Asterius grins evilly.

Asterius flops back down on the furs.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Or maybe I could stay...'.
Asterius's breath comes in a little harder.

DarkClaw grins and lifts up onto her knees, tucking her feet beneath her.

Asterius curls onto his side, tail twitching up over his back and into view.
Asterius slides his bracers off his wrists and trails his fingers down them.

Sparhawk gossips (in elven), 'I love being big enough to go into Demon Realm and -not- worry'.

Asterius gossips (in minotaur), 'Worry wart. Even demons just want to cuddle sometimes'.

Sparhawk gossips (in elven), '*smirk* Not even.'.
Sparhawk gossips (in elven), 'I think this will be...fear practice....'.

(and here the scene gets a bit private in nature. If you want to read the log, please contact one of the participants on mud and ask for it. During the scene, as Asterius is also actively participating via tells and gossips, this happens:

Samiyah yells up from the guild, 'are you in need of anything? Eq? consumables? ... er... potions and the like?'.

Asterius laughs with joy and shouts back, 'I may need some lemonade in a bit'.

Samiyah arrives from the north.

Asterius lets out a loud moan from underneath the piles of furs on the floor.

Samiyah gasps at the sight before her and drops a jar of spiked lemonade on the floor. It lands on one of the furs scattered by the door and does not break.

Samiyah flees north.

With a low chuckle, Asterius says, 'It's always a good idea to hydrate when... exerting oneself'. The scene continues… Afterwards …)

Asterius pants softly.
Asterius pants and exhales slowly, 'I just need a minute...'

DarkClaw retracts her claws that'd shifted into animal form and licks the blood from one shoulder, purring.

Asterius reaches over and takes a sip of lemonade.
Asterius shouts out towards the guild, 'Samiyah, if you're still around... Many thanks for the lemonade, by the way, it was quite helpful'.

Samiyah yells (in common), 'Erm. Sorry for.. uhm... I just didn't want to be interrupting, but you were talking to folk, so I didn't think I would be...'.

Asterius yells (in minotaur), '*with an evil grin* you weren't interrupting... if we wanted privacy we would have shut the door'.

### Somewhere, Samiyah blushes scarlet and stammers something indecipherable.

Asterius laughs loudly enough to be heard downstairs.

(Some post-coital play snipped)

Asterius arches his back, stretching.
Asterius looks down and says, 'I may need to add one more spot as being sensitive after that...'.

DarkClaw grins slowly, admiring the view, reaching out and taking one of his clawed hands and bringing his wrist in so her mouth hovers just above it.

Asterius licks his lips in anticipation.

DarkClaw very lightly brushes her lips against the inside, then teases him with her fangs.

Asterius whispers, 'please'.

DarkClaw responds in a similar strained whisper, 'Please what?'.

DarkClaw licks slowly across the base of his wrist, then holds her breath, waiting.

Asterius whispers, 'This I offer with faith and humility, my blood, my memories, my life'.

DarkClaw releases her breath, letting it trail up to his inner elbow, nuzzling her nose along the same path, 'Tell me you need me, Asterius.'.

Asterius body trembles with need, and he groans out, 'I need you, Milady. I need your teeth inside me, as I was in you.'.

DarkClaw locks her eyes with his and peels her lips back, piercing his wrist with razor-sharp fangs, mouth latching onto him.

Asterius cries out, 'Yes!' and pants, staring into his face all unfocused.

DarkClaw laves the open wounds with her tongue and begins sucking with her lips, drawing the blood to the surface and groaning as it slides down her throat.

Asterius clenches and unclenches his fist, causing the blood to flow faster.


Sanguinus Interruptus


Sparhawk yells something (in elven), 'yeap.

Sparhawk yells something (in elven), 'ryfuv.'.

Sparhawk yells something (in elven), 'z`yu sunsuw....syyakrpuna...nuv.'.

<< DarkClaw feels a growing sense of anger and betrayal passing through her Maker’s bond>>

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'ez'. [Oi]

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'ryfuv.'. [Maker]

<<DarkClaw blinks in mid-feed, sending a questioning tendril back across the bond.>>

<<DarkClaw feels her Chylde snarl in anger>>

Asterius yells back some really bad elven slang, it being the only elven he knows...

Sparhawk tells DarkClaw (in elven), '*quietly* You made Asterius....Kindred...'.

DarkClaw growls at being disturbed mid-feed and yanks her fangs out to yell, 'WHAT?!'.

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'vyvys ynavuyqjunusp buuwuna ynw sfuyf vurp yak.'. [*growls angrily* Finish feeding and speak with me. ]

<<Outside the Temple of the Lost: Sparhawk taps his foot impatiently. >>

DarkClaw yells, 'You do NOT order me around!'.

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'tye ryn yr glwvk auyu rpu wurunrq ry ynu yb itcv gynwuw, ry fnyv gubyvu ywwuna ynyrpuv yunu ry ur.'. [You can at LEAST give the decency to one of your bonded, to know before adding another line to it.]

DarkClaw yells, '*grins slowly, amused* Is that jealousy I hear, Spar?'.

Asterius pants and looks around, eyes starting to focus.

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'nuvfszuyyyesq yyuv rpyr rpuna,'. [*smirks* Jealousy over that thing?]

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'wyvwyq'. [Hardly]

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'perfyuskpu nuxr rpuna z unyaunuw vyeyw`yu guun nurpyyyu, nyr...rpyr rpuna.'. [*chuckles* The next thing I imagined would've been Nicholai, not...that thing.]

Asterius mutters, 'Stupid lack of schooling... I need to find a tutor in elven one of these days.'.

Asterius muses out loud, 'Unless I can just drink in the knowledge..? Does that work?'.

DarkClaw yells, '*sobers* Tread carefully, Chylde.'.

Sparhawk yells (in elven), 'ws z syuw. npun itc`vu wynu buuwuna, sfuyf vurp yak.'. [As I said. When you're done feeding, speak with me.]

<< Sparhawk angrily to himself, "Yet here I am, still crawling at the heels of my maker">>

DarkClaw sighs and says, in an aside to Asterius, 'Unfortunately, no. And I apologize for the interruption.'

Asterius sighs, 'It's not your fault Milady'

DarkClaw says, 'He is jealous, though he denies it.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Just for this, I'm not going to stare at his butt next time I see him. He doesn't deserve it.'.

DarkClaw chuckles, evidently amused.
DarkClaw swipes her tongue across your inner wrist once more, sealing the tiny holes.

DarkClaw says, 'He sensed what we were doing through the bond.'.
DarkClaw sighs loudly.

DarkClaw says, 'I was distracted and didn't think to shut him out.'.

<<Sparhawk taps his silver boots on the ground and growls>>

Asterius curls up next to you, 'At least he didn't interrupt... earlier'.

The earth trembles beneath you!

DarkClaw grins and settles against your side, rubbing her cheek over your ribs, 'I would've killed him.'.

Asterius' faces twists into a silly grin, 'I would have watched'.

DarkClaw laughs.

Sparhawk yells something (in elven), 'Asterius! =tye`vu funwvuw ryvvurr,$'.

Asterius yells back (in common), 'not speak elfen'.

DarkClaw sighs, hearing Spar's pacing right outside the temple, trying to ignore it.

Sparhawk hammers on the temple doors and shouts (in common), 'I know you're in there, I can smell him and you Maker.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Oh, is that what he's been on about'.

DarkClaw says, 'Mmmhmm'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Evidently I just needed to wait for him to learn to speak common'.

Asterius grins evilly.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'So considerate, and rude, at the same time'.

DarkClaw says, 'And he's upset that I made you Kindred.'.

Asterius tilts his head, 'Why?'

Asterius (does something very sexual, edited out)
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Is he saddened for my innocent, lily white soul?'.

DarkClaw says, 'Because...'.
DarkClaw meets his gaze boldly.
DarkClaw says, 'Now it is you at my side when it used to be him.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Aah, jealous of you'.

DarkClaw chuckles, evidently amused.

The clang of silver against Marble echoes off the walls, growing louder and angrier with each step.

DarkClaw says, 'Jealous of you taking his prior place. only...you and I have already gone further.'.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'I could go stretch my legs, if you'd like a word with him'.
Asterius (does something very sexual, edited out)

DarkClaw groans, watching you intently, inwardly cursing Spar.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Fair to say I don't think there's a jealous bone in my body'.
Asterius (does something very sexual, edited out)

DarkClaw grins evilly at him.

DarkClaw shakes her head.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Well... maybe one'.

DarkClaw says, 'I have to go to him'.

Asterius grins happily to see the effect he had on you, and tucks his cock back into his leggings.

Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Of course, Milady'.
Asterius says (in minotaur), 'Would you mind if I wandered a bit in the meantime? I'm.. peckish.'.

DarkClaw growls and stands abruptly, then gathers her composure and walks calmly out of the temple.

DarkClaw glances at Asterius as she leaves and says, 'Not at all.'.

Asterius bows deeply.

DarkClaw leaves the temple.

Asterius carefully readjusts his armor, grimacing as some things don't fit quite right with his body once again hard and ready.

Out of the Fire….


(Rather than walk through what sounds to be a heated discussion, Asterius decides to use a magical potion to jump out of the temple. He bad recalls and lands in Utopia. He takes the opportunity to explore the area and read through Elmer’s journal, which he finds.)

Asterius prays, 'Always amusing to bad recall from the temples, of all places. This place looks fun!'.

Asterius staggers into a nearby cave, disoriented from the aftereffects of the potion.

Asterius falls to the floor, then looks around:

Elmer's Cave
Entering this messy cave, you stumble as you trip over a broom. Gnawed
bones and other things that were once food are strewn about, making the
room look somewhat like the Midgaard garbage dump. Between all the trash
cans and empty bottles you see a heap of papers under which you discover
something resembling a desk. Welcome in Elmer's favourite hang-out...
On a small wooden pedestal you see Elmer's Diary.


Bored while he rests to regain his strength, Asterius pores through the diary:

DarkClaw ftells, 'Hmmm'.

DarkClaw's voice whispers in his head, 'I know nothing about that place.'.

Asterius prays, 'Yeah, complete mystery to me too. I'm going to recall again after I finish reading this diary'.

Asterius goes back to reading.

Asterius prays, 'Can't resist a diary... Such juicy stuff in the ones back home.'.

DarkClaw's voice growls in his head: 'He wants our bond destroyed.'.

Asterius looks concerned and prays, 'Yours and his..? Or yours and mine?'

DarkClaw communicates, 'His and mine.'.

Asterius prays, 'Is that even possible?'.

DarkClaw communicates, 'It is possible to transfer it to another, but...dangerous'.

Asterius frowns.

DarkClaw growls in irritation, her frustration and anger transferring through the bond.

Asterius shudders and struggles through the combination of emotions, 'Is there aught I can do, Milady?'.

DarkClaw communicates, 'I'm afraid not, Asterius, but thank you. I'm rather upset about our time being interrupted.'.

Asterius prays, 'As am I...' and rubs his wrist.
Asterius prays, 'I remember now... Utopia! That's where I am.'.

DarkClaw smiles down on Asterius from the heavens.

(some time passes while Asterius explores)

DarkClaw communicates, 'I told him to call me when he has my replacement.'.'.

Asterius prays, 'Ouch'.

DarkClaw communicates, 'He smirked and said he shall.'

Asterius looks saddened.

DarkClaw flops down beside you, her expression unreadable.

Asterius runs his gloved hand down DarkClaw's leg soothingly.

DarkClaw ftells, 'Okay, time to crawl into my coffin. *frown.

Asterius prays, 'Good night, Milady'.

[A flash of pain through the Bond: nauseating pain, causing the world to go white for a moment.]

Samiyah tells Ghazkull (in common), '*blinks* Urm... Are you ok?!'.
