  1. A noise like she has never heard before pulls her out of her paralysis. Immediately her hands start moving guiding the threads of Earth she just channeled to create some kind of elemental armour around her shaking body. The Weave is not one she learned in the White Tower but one she read about in a dark Ebou Dari library. She has never practiced it before and the uncertainty about its efficiency leaves a sour taste in her mouth. Still, she crosses her fingers hoping it would be enough protect her against the mysterious intruder. Then... something completely unexpected happens. Chuckles. Her warder is actually chuckling! A flash of anger courses through her veins. Is he kidding me? Was he making some kind of sick joke? Or... maybe he's become mad and this creature has terrifying powers. The questions slowly filling her skull make her forget about her fears. Curiosity pushes to step to the other side of the room a shawl - not her Aes Sedai one but a large square of Green wool that sometimes doubles as a blanket - on her shoulders. "Is everything alright?" she croaks but the Gaidin doesn't answer. Her hand moves towards the door know. "Elessar?" she tries again. Her voice is way too low, she knows it. There is no way someone would hear her on the other side of the wooden panel that faces her. The knock on her door surprises her but not for long. They are so soft that they definitely can't be the sign of any incoming danger. "Enter," she says - louder this time - after having pulled on a dress . Her Weave is still active though. Better safe than sorry is after all her new motto. “No danger, all’s fine”, Elessar says at once, wanting to put her at ease. “It was just the innkeeper’s huge black cat.” The innkeeper's cat? Really? Myrrhi doesn't dare to say anything. She feels stupid, completely stupid, for having reacted that way because of a silly cat. I should hide myself. How will my Warder think of me as a real warrior if I get scared that easily. A quick peek into bond partially reassures her. The Gaidin is amused but he doesn't seem to feel ashamed or angry. Relief brings a small smile to her lips. *** It takes the young Green quite some time to feel at ease. She tries to pay attention to Elessar's words but her mind pulls her back to the mysterious cat and the strange fear she felt. Life in the Tower is a sheltered one. A Novice is supposed to stay on the Tower grounds and an Accepted never ventures very far. Her first real mission that really made her travel was given to her only after her raising and that was not that long ago. Am I still a child, she wonders. It is hard for her not to start doubting about her skills, the small experience in the field she now has. After all, even after her Oarths, the Greens insisted on making her going through even more trainings and lessons. It was like all the years she had spent as a Novice or as an Accepted didn't count. She felt very humiliated by these extra requirements. They were supposed to create an extra bond between the Green Sisters but where are these Sisters now? She has not met any for ages, except during that rescue mission. She sighs. Dark thoughts slowly gathers but they don't stay for long. As if the Gaidin know exactly what is going on inside of her brain, he finds way to make her smile, then chuckle and grin. "Thanks my Gaidin," she eventually says. "This means a lot to me."
  2. Hey there I'm Hrafnhildr, real name is Hayley. I am happily married to Thane Vakarian (you may see him lurking around lol) and a mother of 3. I love to draw, paint, play with photoshop ... and to spend times on the Sims 4. Even if I'm not a Brown, reading is one of my other passions. You may find it strange but I am one of the very few people who didn't WoT (the first 8 books were nice but then the ending spoiled it all for me XD). I am more of a ASOIAF/GOT and Harry Potter fan. I joined DM in 2005 - 2006, then made a big break between 2008 and 2013. Now I'm member of the Red Ajah but also an Archer in the Band of the Red Hand and the Mistress of the Novices in the RP section. So if you need anything don't hesitate to send me a PM!
  3. Sleep didn't come easily that night, probably because none of them had come up with a plan. Myrrhi could hardly hide herself to another channeler and her whole behaviour - the way she talked, the way she moved or glared sometimes at people - would definitely give her away would she face someone acquainted to other Aes Sedai. She also felt quite guilty for leaving the party so early. She knew that Elessar would have wanted to stay longer, to gather more information either from their host, either from her guests or maybe both. I screwed this up, she said aloud. The bedroom was dark but not so that she couldn't see the poor pieces of furniture around her. The dress she has placed on a faraway chair looked like a bizarre monster ready to jump on her. The trees on the other side of the shutters made her feel like someone was spying on her. She would see shadows moving from in between the planks of wood. Why am I so scared all of a sudden? She picked up her cover and wrapped it around her. Part of her wanted to go look for the innkeeper and order a big cup of tea full of honey, the other wanted her to man up and shut her eyes once again. How would she be able to defend herself if she was exhausted? As it had become a reflex she peered through the bond. There was nothing there to worry about. Elessar was quiet and calm. Was he asleep? It was hard to tell. Even when he was sleeping he was aware of his surroundings. It was as if he was going through a phase of semi-consciousness as soon as he hit his pillow, which had always impressed impressed her. The young Green had a very deep sleep. The floor on the other side of her door gently creaked. Warmth flashed through her body. Another creak made her open herself to Saidar. She didn't dare to move though. Old buildings creaked, and three cats lived in this one. How silly would she appear if she'd start to channel at no-existing threats? What is happening to you Myr? She asked herself.
  4. I am very curious about New Orleans, in the movies and tv series it still looks like the place of my dreams but maybe it's very far from reality ?
  5. oh my! what a typo lol It was tempted to buy and not to by *shame* Still I'm totally blaming the auto correct
  6. Oopsie, I thought you had done your three Oaths already O.O My bad >> But as long as you have the right number of words, the req are complete (for me). We have low activity, so I don't want to be annoying. *crawls under the table* You can send the quiz anytime now. You don't have to be done with the Oaths ^^
  7. "There was a female channeler at the party, she was close enough for me to feel her. She didn't use Saidar for long, just a fraction of a second, as if something or someone had frightened her out of her wits." Myrrhi took a deep breath. "I know we could have stayed longer to get more information out of the High Lady... but she was on her grounds, surrounded by her people. If she's really scared of something, we'll have better result interrogating her when she least expects it." The young Green toyed with her hair, gathering them in a bun that she let go after a while. "I just don't want to play her little game. Straight answers are the best if we face a big threat, don't you think?" What she had felt earlier that night was truly annoying. Who was that mysterious channeler? An Aes Sedai? If it was the case, then she and her Warder would probably have an ally to count on. If it wasn't ... then it was better for them to think about the worst. Myrrhi had no doubt she could defeat one fellow user of Saidar. Defeating two would be hard work, but possible. Defeating three was a completely different story. She would have to rely on Saidar but also on another set of skills. Like the ones she had learned from her Warder. Females who didn't want to soldier were seldom trained in the art of sword fighting by men as good as the Gaidin. Her hand slowly brushed the little dagger she had hidden under her skirts nicely tucked against her thigh. She would have to keep it close. Already her mind envisioned the set of weapons she would carry the next day. A dagger in each boot, one on her hip. Her throwing skills were a bit rusty but she would train them before going to sleep. She promised it to herself. The fact that the Power had flared only to disappear again led to a thousand different scenario.
  8. Awesome, don't forget to update your thread though ^^ Congrats on Viv's raising <3
  9. Good shoes with big soles are the key XD Makes me think of this lol Now... did someone say nipples ?
  10. So many books, Myrrhi was tempted to have a look at the shelves, to touch the leather covers and to see whether this library might contain stories she hadn't read yet. Unfortunately this was not the place nor the time to listen to the little voice pressing her to succumb to her curiosity. The High Lady was studying her guests, proud of the letter she had placed on the table between them. The Green could see what was happening in the High Lady's head. It was easy to see that the woman liked to be in charge and to impose her will. She'll surely want a reward, a good one... but she doesn't want to appear like a beggar. "The Noble houses of Ebou Dar go on about their own business, interfering as little as possible with each other's activity," she started. "Unless we compete for attention from the rulers of the land, of course, or hope to gain some advantage in our game for power. I am sure it is the same up North." Myrrhi fought not to exchange a quick glance with Elessar. What does she mean, she wanted to ask her Warder. There were many places up North. Camelyn, the Borderlands, the White Tower. Was the High Lady trying to send a personal message to one of them? Even if it was the case, the Aes Sedai hoped she'd get to the point. "But now and again a matter arises when the competing Houses see a mutual benefit of cooperation and decide to work together and this is such a time. This is a matter that I ... we ... feel of great interest, and importance also to the White Tower.... And the White Tower's ... gratefulness... will be appreciated ... in the Light." At last the High Lady stopped talking. Myrrhi still didn't know what this was all about which highly frustrated her. She felt Cyrelle's eyes on her, trying but failing to gauge her reaction. "Let us first hear what you have to offer, before we talk of any... gratefulness... in the Light." It was an ordeal not to roll her eyes. The High Lady summoned a blush that slightly reddened her cheeks. This one should be an actress... Myrrhi innerly shook her head as she heard her host's reassurances. The woman gave a quick and fake-sounding apologize before looking at the mysterious letter. *** "We thank you for bringing this to us," Myrrhi replied with a face as smooth as ancient marble. "As well as for tonight's invitation. Unfortunately, we can't stay much longer as you surely understand. An Aes Sedai duties often prevents her to enjoy events like the magnificent ball you are holding today." The High Lady's eyes grew as big as saucers. She hadn't expected such a reaction from her guests. She slowly opened her mouth either to beg the Aes Sedai and her Warder to stay longer, or to tell what they thought of the letter but the Green didn't leave her the chance to utter a word. "We will see each other soon. Again, we thank you." Myrrhi turned and glided to the door happy to feel her Warder right behind her. She gave polite nods to the people she passed on her way to the exit. It was hard to stay silent, she wanted to discuss the whole thing with her Warder but didn't dare to, not when they weren't sure that people could eavesdrop on them. The Green waited for them to be back at their inn to ask Elessar what his opinion on the letter. They had chosen to retire to the Warder's bedroom instead of risking the common room. Even if it was half empty at this hour it was hard to know what were the patrons true intent. Before sitting comfortably on a chair facing her Warder's bed, Myrrhi summoned enough wards to make sure no one would know what they were talking about.

  12. Guidelines for Novices & Accepted • A. Emulation. Initiates do their very best to emulate Aes Sedai; you act as much according to the above principles as possible. Follow the above rules unless you have a compelling reason not to. • B. Free Time & Chores. Novices have one free day every two weeks, a week being ten days long, and they will also be subjected to chores. Accepted can guide their own studies to a greater extent. All initiates will be working hard. Your days are full; between classes you have chores. You will collapse into bed exhausted every evening, rise still worn out, and thank your lucky stars for every free moment. • C. Pranks. Pranks must be approved (OOC) by both the Mistress of Novices and the victim of the prank. Generally speaking an Accepted will be expected to show more maturity than a novice and therefore Accepted will be punished harder for pranking. • D. Curfew & Limits. Novices are not permitted to leave the White Tower and they must be in their quarters after 9pm in character time. Also, novices may not channel without supervision. Accepted may visit Tar Valon between 10am and 2pm in character time, but they must be in their quarters after midnight. Anyone breaking these rules in character will be caught in character and punished in character. • E. Diligence & Dedication. An average initiate spends ten years as a novice and ten years as Accepted. Once you have committed yourself to twenty years of a harsh, dedicated life you know you want to become Aes Sedai and you are willing to do anything to become Aes Sedai. Study hard. • F. Relationships. Novices are not allowed to interact with members of the Warders Division except when ordered to by an Aes Sedai. If they are caught in the Warders” Yard they will be punished severely. Accepted may go to the Warders” Yard if accompanied by or at the order of an Aes Sedai or when training with the Warders; since they emulate Aes Sedai they will behave with proper discretion and restraint. • G. Timeline. All Novice and Accepted RPs are done in Retro. That means that all your RPs take place long before the current Time Line of the PSW. Please bear this in mind when planning RPs, especially with full ranking characters (Aes Sedai) or members of other Divisions (who mostly do NOT RP in Retro). Certain things will not be known about or have happened yet in Retro, like Forkroot, the Dragon being reborn, the Black Tower, etc. Now to help you, here are the guidelines for the Aes Sedai : * A. Priority & Loyalty. You have dedicated your entire life to the Tower; it is your top priority. Forget about any other affiliations, family or friends you may once have had. You are willing to betray anyone and forsake anything, no matter how important it is, for your Ajah and for the Tower. You are Aes Sedai now. Nothing else matters. * B. Age & Maturity. Aes Sedai are generally raised at around thirty-five years old and anyone immature will have been weeded out before they reach the shawl. Therefore you will be expected to demonstrate maturity and responsibility. * C. Isolation. Aes Sedai live for centuries, watching all their friends and family die long before they do, while bound to a higher duty that ordinary people cannot even comprehend. If you think you can find friendship among other Aes Sedai, you are wrong. Your sisters want to tear you down and take your place themselves. You are isolated. You have nobody to talk to. You are now totally on your own. * D. Relationships. Life as an Aes Sedai is not conducive to love. Other people scorn, fear and revile you; you follow a duty that they can never understand. Saidar is a sweeter feeling than sex anyway. You will be expected to practice isolation and restraint in your private life. You must gain permission from the Division Leader if you want to get married; you must gain a separate permission from the Division Leader if you want children. * E. Discretion. Aes Sedai are expected to restrain themselves in public at all times. You have learnt total self control; you will remain composed and a credit to the Tower at all times. If you cannot control yourself, your reputation will suffer, your future career is damaged and you will be punished for it. * F. Education. Aes Sedai are the most highly educated people in the world. Commoners and princesses alike, you have all been given an excellent education in history, science, mathematics, philosophy and economics. You are familiar with the Old Tongue. If there is anything you do not know, you can make an educated guess.
  13. Length of the Accepted' RP and posts Usually, 1 RP = 1 thread IF your Accepted RP with other RPers: minimum of posts per RP = 6 minimum words per post = 250 minimum words per RP = 1500 IF your Novice RP solo: minimum of post per RP = 1 minimum of words per RP = 1500 Now, some classes are divided into multiple threads, like the "Introduction to Saidar" class which can be divided into 4 threads (1 thread for Air, 1 for Water, 1 for Fire and 1 for Earth). In this case, you can divide your 1500 words throughout the 4 threads.
