Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

More to come

"I like dogs, they aren't as intelligent as cats could be, but the unparalleled loyalty and attitude towards their life partner of sorts is the kind of companionship that maybe I desired deep down; having someone who would love you unconditionally and that you could count on, dogs are amazing pets. But have I owned one? No, I never had a pet. The closest thing I had to bond with an animal was a bird that a former associate of mine had, it was a free little ting, traversed through the city and found it's way home at the end of the day. The sort of trust that you can place in another creature, it's a telling story of how strong a bond could be. You love something enough to let it come and go as it pleases, and it finds its way back to you. "

Placing the paintbrush down and standing up to admire his work, Gabe would pick up his glass as he called Susan.

"I didn't do much of a backdrop, but I got the majority of your face and clothes. I tried to keep some distinctions, like the beauty mark, but I feel like it turned out well. "

The short woman would become flustered again, emotionally confused as she read between the lines. She'd been half-tempted to correct him in that dogs were actually more intelligent that cats for the capacity to learn and their unique social dynamics however that was fairly moot now.
"Y-yes, I can see how that can be appealing," she gasped as Susan reeled a little, "I-It would be... nice... to have someo-... something like that to c-come home to at the end of the day. S... something that you love a-and could spend time with... I-I suppose that is why I'm a... a cat person, they're fairly low-maintenance and allow you to focus on yourself and attend to them when you're ready. I-I've heard I have a bad habit when it comes to that...! Heh heh heh..." She laughed nervously before clearing her throat quietly, closing her eyes and placing a hand over her heart to quiet it. Her brush still had not touched the canvas since she made her mistake, but this was something it was difficult to multitask with. Some people would admit that they may have been imagining things or had been too hasty in their judgments but not Susan. He had been perfectly clear to her in that he was speaking on his ideal form of companionship in a sense. Long-term companionship, she interpreted, whatever that meant. This was something she was also seeking however she could not tell how she felt about it.

Was she excited... or anxious? Was this something she wished to speak of so early in this relationship? Did it intimidate her or was this something she wanted? Susan did not know the answer and it was frustrating not to know. She was left adrift to be tossed by the rocking seas, controlled by emotions she could not interpret but would affect her regardless. It vexed her that she could not understand them like she could so many other concepts, and it was a very intuitively simple concept, but perhaps it was that lack of control which caused her discomfort. And of course there was his own ideal treatment in such a relationship, which she was unsure how she felt about as well and if such an approach could be an ultimate declaration of trust or a blanket excuse to see other people.

At no point did Susan ever stop to include her own leanings in this chain of thoughts and that she might, in fact, but reading much too far into the situation.

The timid woman continued to quiver and second-guess herself, dissecting and redissecting her own thoughts and unknown emotions until she had cut them to ribbons and it was all a garbled mess of feelings until he had motioned to her to see his own painting. It took her a moment to realize that he was speaking to her.
" O-oh, yes." She took her glass of wine and drying paintbrush with her, sipping more generously to drown her own anxieties as she went to see his work. was a skilled work, for certain. From his interpretation she could agree with his original statement. It was a beautiful painting, and had he seen her this way and painted her as such then perhaps she had underestimated her self-interpretation of beauty. It did look like her, though there was the expression.
"Is this how I...." she trailed off, leaning in to observe his technique. There was a sense of beauty in it she'd admit, however she appeared... guarded. Hesitant, perhaps shy or maybe aloof, it was difficult to tell. Though... it was not an inaccurate portrayal and she could not blame him for depicting her as he saw her. Perhaps she should... smile more...?
"Y-your background as an artist clearly shows in the c... care taken with the shading and in anatomy, specifically my hands. I-it is an impressive painting...!" she complimented him, attempting to sound a little more upbeat than her normal dry, muted tones. Though this gave her ideas. Susan quickly shuffled back to her own painting after being inspired, energetically taking to the brush as she worked her plan into motion.
"M-Mine is not nearly as far along as yours, I-I guess my inexperience shows somewhat..." she explained on reflex, devoting all of her attention to the canvas in order to carryout her idea.
