Title: Growing Up Overnight
Post by: Elrania on December 19, 2013, 12:06:00 PM
I played alone, I played on my own, I survived


I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Elrania has a preference to a life of solitude and prefers the company of silence above all else.  **WIP**
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I wore envy and I hated it
but I survived. I had a one way ticket to a place
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

where all the demons go
where the wind don't change and nothing in the ground can ever grow
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
She does share a common enemy with others, these include the Orcs, Spiders and Goblins that her path will cross sooner or later during her trip to find salvation and put right what she didn't do in the past.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

no hope, just lies
and you're taught to cry in your pillow, but I survived
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
She is very skeptical of love and the feelings that come with it after watching her mother break down and disappear at the loss of her father. She doesn't believe in those emotions, but that doesn't mean a special someone might not come along one day and change her mind, although changing her mind will be a very hard task. She's been through enough in her life without running the risk of losing people she cares for, and she is under the impression that should she fall in love at any point, that she too will lose her love, and will wither away into nothing, becoming a lesser being than she is now, and dying alone. This is one of the things that she fears.

Oooh, I like her!  She might have know Ara from before she left, but Ara was just a kid at that point, about 50 or 60 I think.  The good news is, this means if they meet again, they'll almost have a blank slate, but the trouble is that Ara doesn't really get out much.

Elrania && Arasseth

Perhaps she was one of the young ones she left behind? One of the ones she taught about fear being an important part of battle and life? Or perhaps she just looked after her every once in a while.

Completely up to you. As for wandering out that far - Elrania often ventures in towards the center, just to check up on things. Maybe Arasseth sees her there and curiosity gets the better of her?
Title: The Lone Elven Warrior
Post by: Arasseth on December 19, 2013, 09:38:00 PM
Curiosity always gets the better of Arasseth, so that's very likely to happen XD

I think it would be more likely if Elrania had just looked after her, or knew her mother and/or uncle or something.  Tiny Ara was definitely not learning about battles and stuff.

Daechir & Elrania
So, as I had explained in the CBox, Daechir is a Rogue Dunedain. ^^ He often does odd jobs where he can and he tends to travel from time to time. He resides in Laketown do to an incident that happened in his hometown when a murder he didn't do was placed on him. He doesn't talk much to people, and he prefers to be alone but I'm sure that we can find something for the lovely Elf and Dae to do! ^^ Do you have any ideas possibly, Pip~?[/size]

Elrania && Daechir

So yes! All the plots. I just had a thought (thanks to Fall Out Boy apparently). I think if Elrania goes to Lake Town to speak with the Master or something, but never quite makes it there because she hears tell of Orcs or something. Maybe Daechir is in earshot. I don't know how he feels about Orcs, but if he doesn't like them, he might want to go kill some. And that's how the two meet or something like that. Hunting orcs. Or perhaps just in an inn, drinking, although Elrania probably would only be getting food. She doesn't live in Mirkwood directly so she couldn't get food from there. I'm rambling. LET ME KNOW IF ANYTHING IS JUMPING OUT AT YOU

Daechir & Elrania
Ah yes! I think maybe Orc hunting would be a little more interesting. ^^ Daechir doesn't generally talk to people so if she met him at an inn, he'd likely not say much. XD;; Though, maybe what could happen, is on his way to Laketown from Rohan, he runs into said pack of Orcs. Daechir tends to try and protect those around him so, if they were wandering too close to Laketown, he wouldn't hesitate to jump right in and fight them off. ^^[/size]

Elrania && Daechir

So if we have an orc pack going too near Laketown, and Daechir jumps in to attack and defend, but so does Elrania, they can fight together for a bit. Like I say, Elrania could be on her way to get food, but she is always, without fail, armed. But who should go first is the question :3

I can get something out first if you'd like. ^^ Unless you'd want Elrania to jump in first? Either or is fine with me! <3[/size]

If you put me on your to do list that would be awesome! I have to go out and speak to someone in the cafe then come home and do 40 rosettes and some of my course. >.> so yeah aha if you could I'd be ever so grateful

Alrighty, I can do that! ^^ If I don't get to it right now, I promise tomorrow when I wake up I'll have a post going for ya! I'mma try right now but already, my eyes are starting to feel a little heavy so I might end up asleep before getting the post up/finishing it tonight. XD;;[/size]

Wooh! Managed to get that thread rolling for us!!! Here's the link to it, darling~! Fighting for What is Good (
Hope the date is alright with you, since I kinda just chose one, really! XD

Post by: Laineth on February 25, 2014, 02:05:00 AM
I can definitely see Laineth running into her at some point. She's sort of a wild child I gather? Laineth is too. Currently a member of the Mirkwood guard to appease her father, but she is also looking to see if her sister is still alive. She went missing in the wood a few years prior.

Uli could be friends with her in the sense that she doesn't hold anyone accountable for their past. She has away about that would make Elrania feel comfortable around her despite what she has done. Uli is older then her but might seem more childlike the most. She loves being in the woods so most likely these two interacted with each other. She is a healer as well so if Elrania needs medic attention or just someone to talk to Uli is always here!

Aniel & Uichiril

Okay the only thing I can come up with is maybe they cross paths while Aniel is gathering herbs and healing plants in the woods maybe the spiders go after her and since she isn't a worrier and a healer so will not know how to defend herself. she could come to her aid and from there strike up a friendship? Sorry its all I have right now.

Post by: Elrania on August 05, 2014, 08:13:00 AM
Okay so I am definitely the worst for not knowing I had people in Elrania's plotter!

Maybe she could ask Elrania if she's seen her should they bump into one another? El's been living in the woods for a fair while now so not a lot gets past her.

Uli seems awesome. Maybe a wander into the woods, and whilst Elrania holds her guard up, Uli tries to bring it down to get past the guard like exterior and into the caring interior?

Sooo, we never got these two into a thread together. This needs to be remedied.  They will likely be at odds, but I can see an odd sort of friendship blooming. Legolas understands his father's reasoning for the decision he made that fateful day, whether he agrees with it or not.
Title: The Lone Elven Warrior
Post by: Elrania on September 09, 2014, 06:29:00 PM
Elrania && Legolas

It would be an odd sort of friendship because she wont really know how to respond to Legolas (given the circumstances) but I think they need to meet regardless. Hunting - with bows pointed at each other, neither backing down seems a good place to start.
Title: The Lone Elven Warrior
Post by: Nieve on September 09, 2014, 06:38:00 PM

This would be perfect. They can be all trying to out-intimidate the other. And end up having a conversation.

And then they realise they have stuff in common! Yaaay!!

Post by: Legolas on July 26, 2015, 01:29:00 AM

We've talked about these two quite a bit, and I am still entirely game for what we talked about [if you remember it xD]. Further, I like the idea of him ending up quite close to her [as much as we can be with her] in the end, making the effort to visit [and being an unfortunate middle victim of whatever the hell went on between her and Thranduil], and so he's quite heartbroken when she dies.

Post by: Tauriel on February 21, 2016, 05:45:46 PM
Tauriel thinks she could be you centuries down the road XD

Seriously though, these two have a lot of similarities and I would love for these two to interact in a thread either in a past or present one or even both lol!

As a child Tauriel was known to go out on her own into the woods to 'explore' so maybe she ran into Elrania then and sees her grow from an orphaned elf, to a vengeful teen and now a Captain of the guard. Could be that Elrania is one of the people Tauriel goes to visit once in a while when she sneaks out into the woods because even after being taken in she still ventures out because she loves the open skies and the stars more than being underground in Thranduil's great kingdom. And it could be that Elrania's less isolationist views is what has helped temper Tauriel's ideology of interventionism. Maybe Tauriel looks up to Elrania and that in turn is influencing her views on the world as she agrees less and less with Thranduil as the growing sickness of Mirkwood spreads.

It's just an idea, doesn't have to be this way, as I'd be fine with any thing really. I just think it would be fun to have these two thread to some degree. We can also always just throw them in a thread together and see how their dynamic goes and let that dictate their future interactions/history.

And I think I rambled here too...sorry, that happens when I get excited :/

Title: Re: The Lone Elven Warrior
Post by: Elrania on February 25, 2016, 11:31:44 PM
I'll just put this out there before I do anything else. As long as any plotting between the two is done before T.A. 2941 in the Autumn, then that's all fine with me. Elrania pretty much can be wherever I want her to be, whenever I want her to be. After that time, she's dead in the timeline so isn't much use to anyone - but that doesn't mean Tauriel can't have befriended her beforehand.

Past threads are therefore good to go as far as I can see. As for her watching her grow, I think Elrania would like that - and when she learns of her being of the guard, there'd be a certain pride in that. She can come and visit whenever she pleases and Elrania will do what she can to help her. I imagine Elrania will have a good last bit of advice for her before she passes - something that may help sway her decision to fight against Thranduil's orders.

And no no! You didn't ramble - it's all good as far as I'm concerned :)

Post by: Tauriel on February 29, 2016, 07:15:20 AM
I don't know how I missed that glaring bold "deceased as of autumn 2941", (I am chalking it up to that pesky excitement of mine when I first read her plotter) so sorry about that, but yes past threads would be awesome if we could swing that.

I have a few options/ideas for threads to see which you'd prefer:

1) If you want to measure their relationship we could start one from near  the beginning when first they meet; see if a younger Tauriel, peaks enough of an interest for Elrania to even allow the girl to come around more often and maybe even form some kind of bond so as to impact / influence Tauriel's life as she gets older. This would take place closer to the time Tauriel's parents were killed so she'd be quite young but with this unnatural intensity of wanting to kill orcs.

Not sure if you've ever watched the movie Leon / The Professional with Jean Reno and a very young Natalie Portman. Young Tauriel is kind of like the character Mathilda wanting revenge only Tauriel has less of a potty mouth and doesn't smoke ;) But once she learns that Elrania was once Captain of the Guard you can bet lil'Tauriel will be asking how to kill orcs lol!

2) If you prefer not to deal with a prepubescent elfing and assume she's already familiar with Tauriel then we could flash-forward to an older version of Tauriel who is either about to join the Elven Guard and goes to Elrania for advice/extra training (she wants to make sure she's good enough to make the cut) or perhaps Taruiel visits Elrania beaming as she's just been promoted to Captain of the Guard and so goes to surprise Elrania dressed in her new uniform.

3) Another alternative is moving forward still on the timeline to the time Tauriel, now Captain of the Guard is growing restless with regards to the King's views on the growing sickness in Mirkwood and his orders to simply keep to their borders. This would be cutting it close to Elrania's time of death and could be one of the last times she visits/sees Elrania (the spring/summer 2941); asking for advice on what to do because she doesn't agree with the king and wants to do something about the growing threat but she also owes a lot to the man so her loyalties are being strained.

Those would be the ideas I have, if any interest you though I am open to suggestions if you have ideas of your own.
