Description of problem: I have decided to return to the site, so it it possible to have my OOC account and sub-accounts archived? I'd like to take Kili on again if he's available. Is there anything I need to such as rewrite/resubmit applications, etc? I did send a pm, but I'm not sure if it got through. Thanks.

The use of his title, albeit the abridged variation of it, earned a huff of laughter that approached surprisingly close to the endearingly sheepish, stark on the stern features of the man even as something about it fit him. The timing was well put regardless, for it also masked, or at least eased the noise from pain that threatened with her touch. She meant well, even an untrained eye could see that, but there was no denying it even as Eorik semi-consciously did just that that the injury went deep. In a way, the loss of adrenaline that came with leaving the battlefield, victory or no, made it worse for the clarity it brought; he felt he might have preferred the spreading, indefinable fire it had been to the literal bone deep pain that it was now-- for it felt, indeed, as if a knife had tried to scrape slivers from the bone in his arm.

And he couldn't move it, either. The fingers attached to the wound twitched weakly even when he thought hard, and though it was the earliest of days, it filled him with a sick sort of dread.

Rik shook his head slightly then, trying to dislodge the distraction of his thoughts as a dog might shake water from its ears, returning focus to his companion in just enough time to catch the naming of her sire. The eorlingas blinked hard then, his thoughts attempting to chase up his inattention before it became embarrassing-- though Lothiriel spared him, if unknowingly, when she supplied her preference for her name alone, and thus her name entirely to him. She continued on then, and Eorik felt he could do no more than simply listen. Common-born as he was, he was still new in some ways to the experiences she spoke of, and even then, he felt he might disagree on some count with what she'd said, if only because he felt he rather understood the standings on ceremony from another perspective.

But that was for another time, when the world (his world) was not awash with fire and the pounding echo of thousands of hooves still sounding as strongly in his head as if they still rode for the red dawn. A time that might never exist again, where one could simply drink quietly and talk philosophy, and yet, the odd staunchness of the fickle race of Men prevailed upon such hopes.

"You certainly do, it seems." That chuckle that was more merry huff than bodied laughter left him again, though the sheepishness of it was absent. She was allowed to finish packing the wound, before he reached somewhat helpfully for what he presumed would be his new sling; it looked exactly like what had held his arm previously, only much cleaner, and held it out to her.

"Not a habit that any of your patients here would discourage. I will come with you-- many of the eorlingas do speak Westron, but a familiar voice along with the lovely face tending to them won't go amiss with the more stubborn." And afraid, he thought quietly, though it didn't dim the brief twinkle amid storm warning grey, tired though his gaze was.

Alanna had listened with interest as Frior and Kargach had spoken about the ponies. She had heard good things about ponies out of Ered Luin and they seemed to be in good health. She would give the ponies a look-over later since she had heard in Combe that there was an ear lice infection in town which might have spread across the area. The problem was that she had just started working with Frior and his kin and immediately checking for a specific infection might seem a little undiplomatic.

She smiled as Frior asked about her past mistakes. “I'll preface this with the fact that I was 18 and full of a lot more anger at the world in general than I am now. My parents had just been killed by raiders and I decided to go and hunt them down”. She looked down as she pondered how stupid she had been. “Of course I was on my own and not thinking things through, like the fact that I was about ten hours behind the raiders by the time that I left in pursuit, as well as the fact that I was going to be heavily outnumbered and I was heading out into one of the worst storms to hit that part of Rohan for years”.

Alanna frowned. “By the next morning, I had pneumonia and Midnight wasn't in a much better state. I was found by a caravan who were heading to Minas Tirith from Edoras. They made sure that I didn't suffer permanent ill-effects from my stupidity and I ended up being signed up as a guard for most of the trip. That was when I decided to keep on working as a guard. I've learned a lot since then about guarding caravans and a lot of other things”.

She reached back to her shorter than average hair. “I was prone to rush off without thinking. By the time I learned better I had been cut off from the caravan and ambushed by a group of orcs who nearly cut my head off after one of them grabbed me by the braid I had my hair in. I barely managed to stab him with a knife and fight the rest off before I got back to the caravan. As it was I got a large scar across my back and decided to go with a lot shorter hair from then on”.

She smiled and looked around. “I made a good few other mistakes but at least they were non-life threatening”.

Eofor couldn't help but smile as Bard's nephew forgave him for his transgression. Sure, Eofor himself might not have been nobility, but he should have realized treating the nephew of a king could have profound effects on the relationship between the two kingdoms - namely, some threats could escalate a minor situation to a much worse one.

He finished his drink and got another one with Eothain. The beer might have been weaker than usual, but the mead was good - that and seemingly good company.

"Well, I am glad, and I would count your blessings and keep on watch, they have already grown in number in Dale, but then Dol Guldur spat out a fair number. Hopefully they won't continue South into Rohan and Gondor."

"Sadly it's true, but I wouldn't say it's King Thranduil's fault, they've been coming from Mordor as well and that's part of what we came south checking on."

A single sip of mead, the sweet flavors of honey and fresh fruit lingering on his tongue.

"If you would like me to try and help you all look into what Eothain and I can do to help, I will request permission for he and I to take leave to help you all with the investigation."

Her gaze had been known to make people fidgety and...flighty was a good word, even if they didn't run. Can't go staring at people like that! She'd been told, but Nicole was hard pressed to listen, and really, it wasn't like she was staring all that hard, just analyzing in the proper amounts. Between her and Orrin, she was analyzing nothing she didn't already know and it was almost a game. Or a way to settle a current argument, who would back down first.

It was mostly Orrin.

Most everyone else too, in their own ways. She never really tried it against Mr. Vassalos, for job security, though she felt she did herself an injustice and that he would cower in too. Felt she put up with degrading she couldn't even plumb the depths of!

Lynn Parker had held her gaze once. In a very challenging manner. Nicole had been sent to check on something regarding Mr. Vassalos birds, or the other way around and the zoo's birds, and she'd left with a firm disliking of the zoo-aid.

But anyway, Miss Harper Auster did not cower or challenge, but stood straight and still in a manner that instantly endeared her to the older woman. Here was a girl with sense! "It's a pleasure, Miss Auster!", for once she wasn't giving over-gracious compliments as she shook the hand.

The girl further proved her good form Nicole had read off her by asking where she had been headed, but not in a prying manner, more...letting her off the hook as it were of saying any more if she had to get there.

No...she had a sick day and suddenly did not care to go stuff herself in her office, shut up from sunlight and surrounded by four walls. Whether Miss Harper Auster accompanied or not, Nicole knew where she was going. "I was just going to take a stroll in the park", she realized she was not dressed for such and sighed, "Alright I was on the way to work, but I've suddenly realized I need a vacation day! You...are welcome to join me if you want, though I have to swing by my place first". She was not going to walk around in heels.

It seemed odd, inviting this kid to hang around her, but off all she'd realized prior, it wasn't, and here was perhaps the most equal conversation acquaintance to be had for Nicole in all of Middleton!

What Alanna said on Rohan's horses was about what Friór had heard as well! He looked intrigued, then chuckled as Midnight snorted as if in either argument or agreement. Whichever it was, Uncle Andar would no doubt defend that he had reacted so intelligently, and how very smart horses and ponies alike were. Friór next smiled to the horse.

He was part Rohirrim, anyway, as Alanna went on to explain. "He's beautiful", Friór said, and meant.

Alanna complimented their ponies, and Friór glanced to them as well, both those being ridden and those in haul. "Thankyou", he took the praise for Uncle Andar, far as it went, and as he went on to further explain, what they could and couldn't take credit for. "Duchess and Night are from Ered Luin and good stock, I've heard my uncle say, as is Edge", which was the pony Kargach was currently riding.

"Though I heard one of Master Kargach's first ponies, Blaze, was a cut above the rest".

Kargach aimed a smile back at them, "Ah, yes, Blaze will never be outdone, no offense girl", he pat Edge's neck, lest the mare take offense.

"As for the ones we're delivering...I think most of them still came from the Ered Luin stables, I don't know, we're just delivering them for one of the merchants of Ered Luin, and I think he may have bought some of them from other places", Friór went on to explain. Of course Alanna knew some of this mission since, as their hired sword, it was half hers as well.

Alanna might have also seen Great Eagles, and Friór looked impressed enough at the possibility of maybe. He glanced from Alanna to Kargach and back as they discussed this, smiling as Alanna promised to keep him from any serious mishaps. She would have his whole family's strong, Dwarvish, gratitude if she did, and given the amount of family members he had, it would be quite the thing for a Man to be endowed with! "My father had his share of mishaps too, even before he left home, but yeah, I'll...try to not be reckless". And he already was just cut of a much less reckless cloth than his own father had been, to his relief.

"What, um, what sorts of mistakes?", he hesitantly asked, hoping it wasn't rude to do such.

“Dramatics?” he protested, though he was less offended than amused by the word. His expression displayed an effort at mock insult, an unwitting display of just those dramatics he’d been half denying only a moment ago.  Perhaps it was that he had never considered it to be an apt description of himself, who had always seemed so very boring compared to everyone else… even his brother.

And yes, even to Tintalde, who had always seemed to him to be so much more comfortable in her own skin than he had ever been.  He was not certain she would agree with such an assessment, but Tintalde had always been so fully and unwaveringly her while Elrohir still struggled day by day to fully reconcile his heart with his head and…

By the Valar, he was being dramatic, wasn’t he?  The sudden realization in his face might have been almost comical had he not forced it away so very quickly.

Instead, he turned his thought back to her words, his own fingertips rising to mirror the touches she so gently bestowed upon him, fingertips daring to pass barely the whisper of a caress along the tip of an ear, the line of her jaw.

He found it soothed him, to indulge so freely in even this simple exploration, to offer the simple affection of a caress rather than only what formality and propriety would have allowed him before.  There was peace in such honesty of expression, a vast contrast to the tumult of unacknowledged longing that had plagued him for so long.

“Forgive me, my love.”   My love?  He’d said it without meaning to, and yet it drew from him the faintest hint of laughter, hardly more than a breath, and yet so full of emotion he had only barely begun to comprehend. Amusement at himself for being suddenly so bold, and relief that he had managed the words without worrying over them until he’d made them impossible to speak aloud.

“I do not mean to speak so ambiguously.”  What had previously been only the hint of humor blossomed fully into something of a cheeky grin.  “But I fear that must be another curse upon my house.”

“No, I do not think he would mock me,” he answered, his tone turning momentarily sollumn, though the sparkle of humor had not fully fled from his eyes.  “And it brings me joy that my father already knows and loves you well.” 

“It is only that, at times, it can be a bit trying to have a father who is never wrong.”  He smiled faintly, feeling a bit odd about making such an admission.  “At least, never wrong about anything important.  And I think he already knew long ago that I would make the same choice as he did.”
