"Would you stop that?!" Selena said exasperatedly, as she whirled around to face her travelling companions. Lightfeather and Swiftfinger, twin brother and sister kender who had decided to head out on Wanderlust together at the same time. They were trading items from their pouches with each other, bargaining over what each thing was worth and occasionally asking Selena what she thought. She sighed. "We're almost to Sanction, and I want to make a good impression. No more getting thrown out of the town, like in Palanthas."
"But we managed to get back in," argued Swiftfinger, "remember when I found that passage and we went through it so you could get your things back from the inn? Why if it hadn't been for me-"
"If it hadn't been for you 'borrowing' from that topographer we wouldn't have had to sneak back in. Besides, that wasn't a 'passage', it was a sewer, and if you think I'll ever go through that again-"
"Don't be so rude to Swiftfinger," interrupted Lightfeather, "After all, you're the one who decided to come with us, not the other way around."
It was true. Selena had asked the two kender if they wouldn't mind a travelling companion, but not neccisarily because she needed the company; she had gotten them out of trouble several times, when their carefree, young kender minds didn't even know they were in it. (OOC: By the way, for those who don't know, Selena is a human.) In fact, she had met them when they were trying to leave a tavern without paying their tab. How could she leave them alone and oblivious to all the evils of the world? Who knew what might become of them.
"Ok," she said, "you're right. But promise not to stir up any trouble again, ok?"
"Ok," the two said in unison. Somehow, it didn't bring Selena any comfort. The two kender skipped down the road toward Sanction, Selena (the one with all the supplies strapped on her back, weighing her down) shook her head and followed.
Once they were in Sanction, Selena had to work extra hard keeping track of both kender and making sure they didn't go where they weren't welcome (which seemed to be just about everywhere) Suddenly, while in the middle of telling Lightfeather why she wouldn't be welcome in the govener's mansion, she saw Swiftfinger going into a magic shop. "No, stop!" she shouted, but she was too late. She sighed, dragging Lightfeather with her. It looked like she would have to get him out of trouble once again. She just hoped there wouldn't be any angry mages if she got there soon enough.

OOC: Ok, Swiftfinger and Lightfeather aren't my own characters, they're just characters in the story, so whoever's turn it is can decide what they're doing and saying. Um, Selena is my only character in here. Please respond, anybody! :-) I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

Kalia was standing at the counter inspecting the items for sale. she heard a noise behind her and felt the light touch of a Kender borrowing her spell pouch. She spun quickly and grabbed his hand.

"Now, just what do you think that you where doing??" she asked calmly, kneeling so that her golden eyes where level with his. Her white robes spilled out gracefully around her, and her silver hair just barely touched the stone floor.

Swiftfinger looked at her with a confused glint in his eye, and began to stammer....."I..I was only borrowing it!" Kalia smiled...

"there are some dangerous things in here...and even worse in this store. Please be more careful about what you borrow..." She looked up as a human girl walked in dragging another Kender behind her.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena flushed as she saw what had obviously transpired. She let Lightfeather go and groaned inwardly as she walked timidly towards the kender and white robed mage. She hoped the mage wasn't too mad. At least she didn't look too mad. After all, Swiftfinger, like any kender, never meant for anything that someone wanted to keep to end up in his own pouch; it just happened. Selena gulped. She felt kind of weird going into a magic shop. She grimaced as the smells hit her nose. She, like so many of those on Krynn, was wary of magic.
She smiled nervously at Kalia and grabbed Swiftfinger by the upper arm. "Sorry about that, umm... {gulp} I guess I should watch them a little more closely..." She searched for more words, "I hope he didn't do any damage..."
"Damage?!" said Swiftfinger indignantly, "why, what makes you think that? I never...Ow!"
Selena nudged Swiftfinger in the back (hard) with her knee.
"Not now Swiftfinger!" she hissed under her breath and looked at the mage as if to say " can we go now or do we have to apologize some more?"
Just then she remembered..."Where's your sister, Swiftfinger?" I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

Kalia smiled "no harm done..." She, unlike mages, and even most of Krynn itself, was quite fond of kenders...their innocence made her realize that this world still had a chance.

"Is there anything I could do to help...I think the other one slipped out the door. we had better find her.. Sanction is not very friendly to Kender..." Kalia said, worry filling her Gold eyes.

"By the by, my name is Kalia, Kalia Majere..."Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena knew what the mage meant by Sanction not being kind to kender. She had seen it all before... She was already halfway to the door, keeping a close eye on Swiftfinger, when the mage offered her assistance. She only took a moment to decide.
"Would you?" she asked. This mage didn't seem like any threat. Selena especially appreciated how well she had treated Swiftfinger when most people would have all sorts of malisons to shout at him.
She looked gratefully at the mage, then headed out the door. "Where could she have gotten to?" she asked Kalia. "Oh, and, my name is Selena, Selena Arrowbaum from the Kendermo-...where could she have gone?" she repeated. I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

Lightfeather hadn't believed her eyes, and of course that called for a closer look. Slipping away unnoticed, as usual, she followed the large dog quite a ways down the street before she was able to catch up.

"Hey!" She called to the owner; "What kind of a dog is that? Why is it so big? It's so cool that you can ride on it! Wow! Where can I get a dog like that? What's his name?" and so on and so forth.

Mouce pulled her dog to a stop. The greyish wolfhound let his white-tipped tail swish contenedtly while his large pink tounge lolled out of his mouth to give Lightfeather a 'hello'. "This? 'tis a wulvhound." The girl said. She was a strange kender-human mix, taking on the stature of the kenders and the disposition of a human. Not to mention, she had a strange heavy accent, origin inditinguishable. "He is big to hunt wulvs. His name is Metaer-sún." She paused a moment. "There are only a few, so getting one is not easy. Would you like to ride myne?"

"Could I???" Lightfeather asked, ecstatic. Mouce nodded, and Lightfeather hopped on.

"Hold on, he likes to run." Mouce said. She snapped the reigns and the dog immediately took off, leaping fruit carts and cutting corners, at one point spilling a cart of oranges. After that incident, Mouce urged him on faster.
"I think our definitions of yelling are different, because when you said I yelled at you , I hadn't thought that I did."

"No, you were yelling."

OOC: I was hoping for a big reaction to Kalia's last name.

Kalia scanned the immediate area once they stepped outside. She watched the Big Dog with two riders...both Kender, crash into an Orange cart.

"I do believe that they went that way." she said, pointingHave you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena slapped her hand over her eyes when she saw where Kalia pointed. (By the way...hadn't she heard that name before? Majere...hmm...what was she thinking?! She had to get Lightfeather.) Whoever would go riding through the streets of Saction with a kender on a dog must be either a crazy person, or...{gulp} another kender. (Either that or both, which seemed more likely.) This time, she kept a tight hold on Swiftfinger, who she half dragged, half-carried towards the giant dog (which was really neat...she wondered where she got it...) and the two riders.
Selena was hurting Swiftfinger's arm. But he didn't mind too much. He was worried about his sister too. He had a feeling she was alright, though. She always seemed to come out clean from a scrap. Selena was the only one who seemed to be causing a commotion. (And Selena had told HIM to stay out of trouble, now she was the one running around carrying people...as if that wasn't ostentatious!)
Selena knew she must be hurting Swiftfinger's arm, and she hoped that Kalia wouldn't think her cruel (she really liked her) but who knew what trouble he may get himself into if she let him go for even a second? Just look at where his sister was!
She ran up, out of breath to where the giant dog and the two former riders were {assuming they are off of the dog yet?}.
"Lightfeather, are you alright?" she said hoarsely.
Lightfeather was nearly too busy laughing to reply. "Yes!" she said, jumping up "that was wonderful! I think I want to do it again!"
"No, you don't!" said Selena, grabbing Lightfeather by the arm, one kender in each hand now(OOC: wow, glad I'm not her, LOL), "We were so worried! You could have gotten hurt or even...even..."
The two kender looked at her inquisitively. Selena looked around her, embarrassed. She knew she seemed like a mother scolding her child, but she just couldn't help worrying. Even the kender were quiet. She waited for someone to break the silence. Hopefully it wouldn't be a vendor, especially the one from the orange cart...
I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

Kalia smiled and nearly laughed as she caught up to them. She had already paid the Orange vender for the damage and walked up to Selena and the two kender.

"How about this... you keep an eye on the one...Ill keep the eye on the other..." Kalia crouched down. "What do you say Swiftfinger? wana stick with me for awhile?" she asked softly.

"Sure!!" he said enthusiasticly, and took her hand willingly.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Mirror
09/04/2001 11:36 AM

Mirror watched as the strange band of people sorted themselves out. The human girl was busy scalding a young female kender, who looked liked she had just rode into the side of an orange cart on the back of a big dog being driven by a half kender. She saw her friend, Kalia, talking to another kender, this one was a male, and also trying to to keel over in a fit of hysterics. She had only come here to go into the mage ware shop, but decided that this looked more intersting.
She walked over to the group, her specially customed silver robes (with splits up the sides to allow easy access to her concealed short sword) shuffled around her feet as she moved, the slight breeze whispering around her long white hair which had been braided at the temples and the sun made her reflective eyes glimmer beautifully as she smiled at the group.
"Ho, Kalia!!! I can't leave you alone for a moment and you get yourself into a predicament like this!!!" she giggled.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

"I hope I didn't alarm you too much . . ." Mouce appologized. "She just seemed to love Metaer-sún I didnt think it would hurt to offer a ride. That was before Mataer decided he liked jumping." She gave him a playful bop on the nose. "I think our definitions of yelling are different, because when you said I yelled at you , I hadn't thought that I did."

"No, you were yelling."

09/04/2001 5:28 PM

Kalia smiled,and keeping her grip on the kender, she hugged her friend.

"Mirror! how have you been?" she laughed and turned to Mouce. "Its ok...just be more careful ok??"Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena could hardly comprehend what she was hearing. Lightfeather could have been hurt! "Just be more careful, ok?" she mimmicked to herself and snorted. Then she smiled down at Lightfeather. Now that she only had one kender to handle, things might get a bit easier. Though for some reason Lightfeather seemed disappointed that she didn't get to go with Kalia. Selena couldn't imagine why. She was a perfectly good companion (even if she was kinda overprotective...)
Lightfeather was making a move to pet the dog. Selena jerked her back. "No, I think you've had enough experience with animals for one day," she said. "Why don't we go somewhere else and see what else there is in Sanction? This place isn't too awfully nice to people like us, so we won't be staying long. Why don't we explore while we still have the chance?"
"Well, ok" said Lightfeather, and, slipping out of Selena's grasp with ease, hugged her brother goodebye and skipped down the street, her pouches dancing wildly behind her and her topknot bouncing.
"Hey, wait!" called Selena, smiling apologetically at the large group she had been with, and ran after Lightfeather. I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?!

Kalia shook her head, she had heard Selena mimicing her. being a Dragon had its good points and her hearing was one of them. "Ok SwiftFinger...if you promise to stay with me I promise that we will try to see as many interesting things as you want ok?" She asked smiling.

Swiftfinger's smile widened and he nodded. "Just let me know ok? don't wander off.." she said and turned to mirror, "lets walk. Selena seems like a nice girl, but she should realize that Kender are like a combination of Children, and animals...in a way.. You don't punish a dog for doing what comes natural...you push them away from it, slowly gently.... Kender, they know what they know...and only kindness can help them understand why the world dislikes them."Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena ran after Lightfeather until she thought her lungs would burst. She didn't see her anywhere. "Lightfeather!" she called over and over again. "Where are you?"
She was just on the point of a nervous breakdown when she heard a noise, then Lightfeather came out of a nearby alleyway. Two gully dwarves followed her. Selena backed up in disgust.
"Here I am!" Lightfeather announced, "and these are my new friends! There's Tort here, and Sarn over there. Oh Selena, you wouldn't believe; they worked the most wonderful magic; Tort held up this rock and then..."
"What?!" asked Selena, "You run off and I have to worry myself sick to find you and you're...affiliating yourself with...gully dwarves?! Don't you realize that they will only lead you to trouble? And Fizban knows what diseases they carry! Come on Lightfeather, let's go to-"
Selena grabbed Lightfeather by the top of the arm habitually. Though the gully dwarves appeared unmoved by Selena's pejorative words, Lightfeather appeared genuinely hurt. She struggled to get free, but this time Selena was ready.
"How can you say that Selena?" she cried, "they have feelings too!"
"Yes, I'm sure, and I'd rather they kept them to themselves. Come on, let's go see the rest of the town. I thought you wanted to see-"
"No, Selena, I don't want to go anywhere with you," said Lightfeather, and pulled herself up straight and tall (for a kender). "I wish you would be a nicer person sometimes Selena, especially times like now."
"Lightfeather," Selena tried to sound strong, but her throat had grown tight, "I was just worried...I-"
"Well, worrying means taking precautions while having fun, not having no fun at all, or spoiling the fun like you do. I wish you were more like...like that nice white robed lady from the magic shop!"
Selena was speechless. She let go of Lightfeather's arm as her own went limp. After all she had done to keep them out of trouble, this was the way they truly felt. They saw her as an overly protective fun spoiler. And that woman, -Majere, was it?- that had smiled at Mouce when he could have gotten Lightfinger killed...they liked her better? Selena tried to talk, to say something to Lightfinger, but no words came out.
Lightfinger had had enough. "So," she said, "I'm going to go look for them, and I hope you'll change a little before I see you again... Goodebye Tort, goodebye Sarn!" she said cheerily to the gully dwarves, and skipped off.
Selena hadn't planned on this at all. She had only been trying to help... She would just die if something should happen to Lightfeather or Swiftfinger... But for once she couldn't run after Lightfeather. She sat down in the alleyway and pulled her knees close. One of the gully dwarves came up to her and patted her on the back with a grubby, filthy hand. She started to jerk away and shout at it to go away, but then Lightfeather's words came back to her.
"Thank you," she said, and gave him a sad, yet thankful smile. When the gully dwarves had left, she lay her head in her arms and cried. So here was the kenderdefender...with no kender to defend.

I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

09/05/2001 4:20 PM

Kalia, having followed Selena and had watched the whole scene, sighed. She held her hand out to lightfeather and smiled.

"Lightfeather, will you and swiftfinger please stay here with my friend Mirror? I promise, if you listen an try not to get into trouble, I will show you something really amazing once we leave the city."

Kalia smiled and let go of their hands. she turned and walked over to selena. "Are you ok? Come on you can talk to me...I didn't mean for that to happen...but she was right...they remind me of Tas in a way..." she said softly, gently resting her hand on Selena's shoulder.

"ok...heres a bit of theory for you... say you have a wolf...they love to dig, and will growl at strangers. that is part of their nature...do you dicipline them for doing just what comes natural? no. at least you shouldn't. you guide them to see just what is acceptable and what is not around other people. You reward them with good behavior...and soon you have a loving friend. Children for example...you don't disipline what comes natural, but you try to show them what is to be expected, and when they do as you ask you reward them. Do you understand what I am trying to point out??
Think about it for a bit...in the meanwhile, come on it's getting late, and we should set up camp for the night."Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena tried her best to scowl at Kalia; she hated to admit that anyone else was right. But all that came was a pitiful look on a face swollen and red from crying. She stopped the tears as soon as she heard Kalia's voice, but she couldn't help sniffing every now and then. She looked a bit distant as Kalia gave her her theory.
She supposed that if you did discipline the wolf, like she had done the kender, it may end up obeying you but will never truly love you. Lightfeather had shown her that. But what about the wolf? What if you loved it so much and you never wanted anything bad to happen to it, even if it meant disciplining it for its own safety? She supposed Kalia was right; it had to grow up sooner or later, and she might not always be around. She gulped. What would Swiftfinger and Lightfeather do without her? They could get into all sorts of trouble. (and they might just love it) Well, she supposed it couldn't hurt to test this wild new theory for a little while. She got up, dusted herself off, and followed Kalia. I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban?

Simon was wadding through the streets of sanction. There were heads everywere.
There was a light touch to his pouch. There was lite sizzle and a yelp. He turned quickly and snatched the hand that had been reaching for his pouch.
It was a small kender male. He was standing there wincing with pain. The shock was not enough to hurt the small creature but enough to get his attention. He pulled the little creature towords him. He bent down to look the kender in eyes.
" you don't want whats in there little friend. It is no good to you. And it will only get you in trouble."
Simon stood back up, and looked at the woman standing next to the kender.
" I am Simon the shadowed. I am an aprentice to Dalamar the dark. I need to find the mage shop around here. Do you know were it is."
As he looked at her he felt a strong presence of magic. Almost as if she her self were magic. He was intrigued by her. The kender started staring at Simon's face.
" Are you an elf. He asked. Cause elfs can't do magic."

" Yes i am friend. A Kagonesti elf. And yes we can do magic. But we are not aloud to. That is why i am a dark elf."
He looked up again at the woman standing there.
"And may i ask who you may be?"

IC: Kalia walked up to Swiftfinger. "Are you ok?? remember what I said about keeping your hands to yourself...or no surprise at the camp...got it??" She asked, allowing her Golden eyes to sweep over the Dark Elf. She tucked a stray strand of silver hair behind her ear and smiled warily.

"Um...if it was the mage shop that you where looking for, it's just down this street on the left hand side.." she said, standing up. she held onto swiftfinger gently and bowed her head slightly and turned away.

"so are you and your sister ready for your surprise??" she asked, keeping her voice full of exitement, trying to ignore the peircing stare from Simon at her back. Lightfeather nodded while swiftFinger laughed and cried out "YES!!!"

"Come on guys, they're gonna be closeing the gates soon, if we want to set up camp, we had better leave."Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

09/05/2001 11:39 PM

Mirror's head spun. Looking after Kender was something that was not as easy as it looked. She tried talking to them, but all they did was accost her and rifle through her pouches. She retrieved all of her belongings which were accompanied with cries of, "Oh, you must have dropped it, it was lucky I found it for you!" and "Oh, I'm sorry, is that yours?" Then, the little male one skipped away and decided it would be fun to explore the pockets of a black robe! Oh Paladine, why me? she thought to herself and went to retrieve the kender. She was met with strong oposistion owever, from the black robe. He did not seem to want to leave it be. She turned to him, her reflective eyes flashing dangerously.
"I am no dark elf, Master Simon, and I would like it if you were a bit more civil to me and my friends. I will not just stand here while you try to intimidate us, because YOU DON'T SCARE ME!!!!!" she said, shouting the last part right in the black robes face. She leaned back and relised that, with heindsight, that probably wasn't the best thing in the world to do, but she'd be darned if she was going to let a black robe frighten her!!!!!! She stood firm and waited for any reply he might give..........Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Mouce and Metaer-sún made their ways quietly through the city as night made its way quietly overhead. The half-kender pondered her actions, realizing that a bit of her kender heritance had surfaced that afternoon, and the human sense in her noticed how it had hurt others. Through wandering, she found herself by the young girl who had been with the kenders, except there were no kenders.

"Excuse me, miss?" Mouce started, dismounting. "I simply wanted to appologize. You must forgive me, though; sometimes my kender intuition gets ahead of my human logic. It's a curse to have both. Here --" She handed Selena a whistle. "If you ever need me, whether youre in danger or if you've lost a kender or for whatever reason, I will come to the call of that whistle."

Suddenly, there was a yell, and Mouce looked to see the two elven women and the keners, as well as a Black-Robed mage.

"Well, I shall leave you to your friends. Again, I'm sorry for all the trouble I've created. Farewell!" And she mounted Metaer-sún and disappeared into the city crowd."I think our definitions of yelling are different, because when you said I yelled at you , I hadn't thought that I did."

"No, you were yelling."

09/06/2001 5:22 PM

OOC. I was talking to mirror. And to a black mage the magic of solonari is not really magic at all. But i am sorry if it was a mistake.

" I am very sorry miss if i came off as trying to intimodate you. I had no intention of doing this. Somtimes it comes as a natrual reaction of mine. Again i apoligize. And i had no intention of calling you a dark elf. I can see that you travel the ways of the White moon. I ment no disrespect to you or your friends. In fact i was just wondering what a beutiful elf like yourself is doing guarding a couple of kender."
Simon stared into her flasking eyes with out flinching. He had seen it many times before in the eyes of his master and uncle. Calmly he stared into her eyes waiting for her recoarse.

Kalia looked at mirror, and smiled. Both she and Mirror did not truely follow the path of Solinari... Kalia's white robe was tied with a Gleaming silver sash. She stared at the elf, unable to help herself, her gold eyes took in every detail. she pushed back a stray lock of silver-white hair and smiled.

" Greetings then...I am Kalia, Kalia Majere" she said, giving mirror a glance, that showed the humor in her gold eyes.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Selena tucked the whistle that Mouce had given her into her pouch. She might need it sometime...
She approached her companions. They appeared to be conversing with a black robed mage about something. Selena didn't want to interrupt, so she stood outside of the group and listened. She looked at Lightfeather, but as soon as her look was returned with an angry glance, Selena looked away. She hoped they would camp soon; nice peaceful sleep where all of her problems dissapeared was just what she needed. I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?!

OOC. I did not know the time period. I was not sure i caremon is dead yet.

Turning to the Kagonesti elf Simon replied.
" I am indeed a Kagonesti. Though i am not so sure that they would be as quick to admit that i am one of them.
Simon laughed quitly. He then turned to to the other women.
" And I once knew your uncle. He was a great man. Dalamar and i used to go and visit him somtimes at his Inn. He used to facinate me with stories of the wars of the lance. I have a great respect for him and your uncle Raistlin."

Selena sighed inwardly. So THAT was where she had heard that name before! Then she frowned. Uncle Raistin and uncle Caramon? She frowned and pondered for some time. She didn't want to interrupt, but she just couldn't add it all up in her head... I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?!

Kalia noticed Selena frown, but said nothing...she could sense the sudden realization then the confusion from her, but she knew better than to ask...She would give the Kenders their interesting show then, all would be known.Have you ever stopped to think then forget to start again??? :(

Starting to walk along with them simon asked.
" Would you like some company to your camp?"

Kalia_Majere
09/20/2001 5:34 PM

Kalia nodded once to simon. "of course...you may join us if you wish."

Once at the camp Kalia motioned to them all. "Make yourselves at home...what is mine is yours" She tuned to find swiftfinger and lightfeather standing behind her.

"where's the surprise??? we want our surprise...we where good!!!" LightFeather pleaded, holding onto her brothers hand. Kalia smiled and walked a bit away from the camp.

"my gift for the kenders is an explanation to you all as well." She turned and held the trancended Staff of Magius in front of her. The once wood, metal and crystal staff was now pure crystal. from smokey quartz of the staff, to the citrine of the gold claw, and Clear, faceted crystal orb that the claw held.

"I was adopted by the Majere family...To protect me from falling into the hands of the dark queen, my matiriarch, auricana, transformed me to a human babe. I have lived the last 25 years as a human, and I feel more close to them then my own family....The family of the Dragons of Light...."

With that, the crystal at the top of the staff flashed, and Kalia disapeared. In her place stood a Large Dragon. Clear crystaline scales glittered from nose to tail. Huge Feathered wings folded gently at her sides. A row of ten pearly horns crowned her head and framed her face. 90 feet from nose to tail, and wings that stretched 100 feet. she lowered her head to touch the ground, eyes level with the kender.

"so how is that for a surprise??" she asked softly and smiled.may all those lost in the tragedy of 9-11-01 forever remiain in our hearts...

There was a throaty bark, and Metaer-sún appeared with Mouce on his back. Both were looking at Awe at the dragon.

"I must say . . ." Mouce started "I hope we didn't interrupt anyhting . . .I was just going to mention that my camp's not to far from here and I've some extra rations . . . goodness," She was looking at the sheer size of the magnificent dragon. "I'm afriad to say I don't quite have *that* much, though . . .""I think our definitions of yelling are different, because when you said I yelled at you , I hadn't thought that I did."

"No, you were yelling."

Glimmers eyes softened, and turned sad. "yes...in my youth, I was told that I was the last....that I was the created by paladine himself, to protect and watch over this land in its greatest time of need. I was the sixth of the origional Metalic Dragons...Paladine's Daughters....the famus Gold Dragon Aurora and her sisters. I was created after they where Killed by the five sons of Takisis...My egg only just hatched 300 years ago. The ledgends told by the metalics who protected my egg that i would only hatch when Krynn needed me most....But I continue to hope to find another of my kind....I love humans...but none can fill that void"

Selena stood in awe, not knowing whether or not to believe what had transpired before her in the past few moments. Her eyes opened wide; she barely heard what was spoken. Then she was confused by what Mirror and Glimmer (by the way, I think that is a beautiful name) exchanged. It would seem as if Mirror had lost something very dear to her. Selena sighed sadly; she wasn't the only one. She looked sadly at Swiftfinger and Lightfeather as they doted on Glimmer and laughed and asked innumerable irrepressible questions. It appeared *she* had lost something very dear to herself as well... I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?!

OOC: thanks I kinda thought of it spur of the moment....being a Crystal Dragon, I thought that Glimmer was perfect.

Glimmer lowered her head, and allowed the kender to pet and poke and prod. When she had finally had enough, she reverted to her human form, and hugged the kenders gently. then, to Selena's surprise, Kalia shooed them off towards her. "Go on...she's your guardian, not me." she said and smiled wistfully, may all those lost in the tragedy of 9-11-01 forever remiain in our hearts...

Selena stood still for a few moments, dumbfounded. The two kender could never be as happy with herself as they were when they were with Kalia. Lightfeather had said it; she didn't know how to do anything but worry about them. How could she be expected to emulate Kalia's kindness so quickly? She looked at the two kender; they unwillingly stood halfway between Kalia and herself, as if testing Selena to see what she would do. She would have to try her best...
She walked towards Lightfeather and Swiftfinger. She stooped down to their level so as to talk with them easier.
"Lightfeather, Swiftfinger, I-"
Suddenly there was an enormous clap of thunder and a blinding flash of lightning. Selena instictively reached out and held the twin kender close to her. When it was over, she blushed, looking embarrassedly at them.
"Umm... I , er..."
A smile played accross Lightfeather's lips. "You were scared." She said quietly, understandingly.
Selena started to get up, then clumsily fell over onto her back side. She sat up indignantly.
"I was no-" she began, pouting.
"It's okay, don't worry." said Swiftfinger, "we understand."
"We know humans get scared sometimes, but don't worry; we'll protect you."
"That's right!" said Swiftfinger," humans are always needing protection. Come on Selena, let's try and get some sleep."
The two kender started dragging the spluttering Selena, each arm held by a kender hand, towards the camp.
"Don't worry about the storm," said Lightfeather, "we'll stay up and keep watch. We won't let anything bad happen to you."
The kender led her to her bedroll then looked at her expectantly. She was too flustered to speak. This wasn't right at all! She looked back at the rest of her companions. She shook her head at them as if to say, "One word, one little smirk, and you've had it."
Selena had to admit, though, she was kind of tired. So she obligingly sat down then lay on her stomach on her bed roll.
As she lay drumming her fingers on the ground, she thought to herself (Well, this may not be the way I'd planned it, but it's better than nothing.) She yawned. She opened her eyes. There was no way she was going to be the first one to fall asleep; her dignity had suffered enough already. She heard Lightfeather singing a kender lulliby; that was it. She wouldn't suffer this indignanty anymore!...
Swiftfinger was getting tired of waiting for Selena to fall asleep; protecting humans could get pretty boring. Then he remembered some sleeping powder in his pouch that he had "acquired" from a mage earlier in his travels. He pulled it out and sprinkled some in Selena's face.
Selena was just about to get up and tell those kender just how mistaken they were. Because she wasn't going to sleep before everyone else. If it wasn't for the clouds, the sun would still be out! She was going to stay up until...until...
Suddenly she felt something like sand sprinkled across her face.
Her light snoring could be heard within seconds
"I think we're doing a pretty good job" said Lightfeather sagely, stroking her chin thoughtfully.
"Me too," said Swiftfinger," She won't have anymore worries while we're around. In fact, this will be a great adventure, now that *we're* deciding where to go!"
"Yeah" she said," I just hope she won't be cranky when she gets up."
"Oh, she won't be. She wanted us to help her fall asleep; then she could forget about the storm and won't have to be scared anymore."
"You're right! Well, let's go talk with everyone else; it's still kinda early. Plus, we should see where we're heading tomorrow." said Lightfeather.
They turned around and beamed at the rest of their companions. A job well done? I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban? Fizban, what are you doing?!

09/22/2001 12:40 PM

Mirror sat awake for a while as she watched the others gently decend into the relms of slumber. She put a hand inside a pouch she always carried around her neck under her robes, a pouch that always stayed close to her heart. In it, was some powder. She gently picked out a small sample of the powder and blew it into the air in front of her. Pictures began to form in front of her eyes. As she watched, three half elf children ran and played, tumbled and tousled together. Two were girls and one was a boy. Each child shared the same astounding reflective eyes, a trait passed on to them by their mother..............
She let a tear fall down her cheek as she watched the scene unfold before her. Now, all three were seated around the fire as Mirror sat in front of them, regaling them with tales of dragons and mages and knights of Solamnia. She watched as each one began to take on the characteristics that would fit in with their future choice of magical order. One of the girls, her hair as white as that of her mothers, sat serenly and watched as Mirror told her tales. The other girl, her hair as red as flame, sat and chattered, often interupting, trying to weigh up the pro's and cons of each character and their actions in her mothers tales. The boy, his skin the darker colour of the Ergothians, his hair as black as pitch, sat off to one side, shrouded in shadow, brooding quietly. Yes, he would have been his fathers son alright..................
Mirror waved her hand in front of the image and it vanished as quickly as it had arrived. The tears were flowing freely now as she once again mourned the passing of her children, her triplets, her gift's from the God's. She curled up into a fetal posistion and mourned for the children she would never know. The hot tears stung her eyes as they mixed with the cold night air as she wept for her miss-carried babies.........
Finally, fatigue overcame her, and she fell into a slumber filled with the images of mirrored eyes.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Mouce and Metaer-sún left to collect her things from the other camp and relocate with this new, larger group. After packing the last utensil, though, the large dog gave a low, throaty growl, looking off into the distance.

"What do you see, now, boy?" Mouce asked. Her hearing, more accute than human's but not quite a kender's, soon picked up a band of creatures some ways off. "Shall we investigate?" Mouce asked. Metaer-sún gave an affirmative snort, and she climbed onto his back and pulled the reigns in the direction the sounds were coming from.

Despite his size, Metaer-sún padded softly through the forest with movements like a wolf. When Mouce could tell they were getting quite close, she dismounted, ordered him to stay put, and then crept forward, putting her namesake to use.

She saw a band of goblins, some twenty members strong. They barked at each other in their gutteral language, and though Mouce certainly wasn't proficient, she had been around many races and had picked up key words and phrases here and there, and she gathered that they were looking for someone.

She didn't know who, whether human or no, female or male, father, daughter, child, elderly, she certainly wasn't fluent. But she knew they were looking for someone, they weren't happy about not finding that someone, and Palanthas kept coming up -- yes, she recognized Palanthas. Something tugged at her mind that this wasn't good, and might have something to do with the large Crystal Dragon only about two miles away. Quietly, she crept back to Metaer-sún, then directed him away from the band, northward, incase they followed. When she was sure they were out of eye-shot, ear-shot, and were not being followed, she turned back towards the camp and slapped the reigns for a gallop, and Metaer-sún understood her urgency."I think our definitions of yelling are different, because when you said I yelled at you , I hadn't thought that I did."

"No, you were yelling."

Simon watched mirror pull out somthing from under her robes. She blew into the air around her and images started to take form in side the cloud. There were three children. All of them with diffrent personalities. One atentive and quite, one curious and demanding, the other was quite and brooding. Simon could identify with the third. For he had been like this as a child also.

"Goblins!" she growled softly. Quickly she nudged Mirror urgently. "wake up my friend...We have company.."may all those lost in the tragedy of 9-11-01 forever remiain in our hearts...

Mirror woke instantly at the nudge of her friend, and years of life on the road told her not to allow herself any time to wonder about her surroundings, she needed to be alert the moment she woke. She had managed to perfect this into an art and was standing up, one hand on the spell components at her hip, the words of a spell on the tip of her tounge before she had even realised she had thought of it. When she noticed that there was no immeadeate danger, she relaxed a little and turned to her dragon friend.
