    A Fellowship in Frost

    Esmald didn't wake but snorted loudly, turning over in his bed of furs. Probably a little too much to drink, Torie thought. Easy to do but dangerous in the cold south, especially while outside. She glanced around selfconsciously then settled over Esmald's legs, and dragged some due over his chest with her paws. He wouldn't die tonight at least! When she woke the next morning Esmald was gone, and Torie sat up with alarm. She looked about and found his footprints heading towards a nearby stand of trees. Perhaps he was just relieving himself, she thought. "Come on, socks," Simot said cheerily, dropping a dead doe at her nose. "Eat up while I harness you. We're about to break camp, sleepy kitty!" Torie stood with a groan, which sounded more like a low roar. Her head was slightly achey from the drink the night before, and her body still ached. Simply pulled the harness tight around her middle and she grunted. "I can't eat if you're squeezing me," she said, but Simot only pulled tighter. "You can only eat less, you mean. Come on! One more day's travel and you cab eat until you can no longer move." With that he gave her bulging flank a firm pat, sending ripples through her thick layer of blubber." "Stop that," she said with a roar, turning to swipe at him with a gigantic paw, but once again he was too quick. "Just eat your breakfast and pull the sled. Stick to what you're good at, Fat Cat!" Then Simot walked off to help his parents and siblings. "I'll get you yet, battling," Torie said, though not loud enough to hear. She bent over and ate as much of the doe as time and harness permitted, then tentatively leaned into the harness. Gods. Was it heavier than yesterday? She leaned in again and this time it moved, albeit painfully slowly over the hard-packed snow.

    Alternatively I can do a time skip now to when Uschi wakes up I suppose? I don't want to lose everyone's interest:).

    @The AlexandrianYou don't need to make an epically long post. Short posts are fine. Please post to the effect you did above:).

    There is no haunt. Though I can tell why you think there might be:). But I intend to move things along soon. Anyway, @The Alexandrian, it's your turn:).

    Hello all. @PurplePanda hasn't been active in this or the other RP I'm in with her. Let's skip her for the moment. Purple, if you're reading this, feel free to jump back in any time:).

    Sadly, I think it's time to skip @PurplePanda , until she makes a reappearance. Everyone ok to continue?

    @PurplePanda Would Esmald be woken up by some gentle shaking? If not Torie will probably settle down near him to keep him warm :). Just want to make sure before I assume!

    Torie gobbled down Azul's food gratefully, and a little guiltily. She made sure to avoid eye contact with chief Kasat. Once she was done she lapped up the bowl of drink that had been left for her - a little too quickly, but she was eager to get out of the cold. Normally Torie would sleep with the adults. Having a huge tigress as a throw rug did wonders to keep out of the cold. The children all asked to sleep with her but if Torie had nightmares or was just restless, there was a high enough chance she would roll over and squash them that their parents would not permit it. Head spinning, and with her stomach at least somewhat satisfied, she headed off towards the tent. That's when she noticed Esmald curled up against the pile of pelts. She didn't know much about Esmald, other than he was a hard worker and very... beardy. And he looked asleep. Even snuggled against the pelts it was likely he would freeze to death out here, so she wandered over, her gait weaving all over as she drew closer. "Hey... Esmald? You shouldn't fall asleep out here, or you might not wake up. Esmald?" she reached forward and shook him gently.

    "Butt-saving is greatly appreciated," Torie said in response to Elaine, grinning toothily. She cast a disappointed glance at Marian and then leaned back into El's scratching with a yawn. "I'm not sure about braiding my hair but a brush would certainly be appreciated, Jenny!" Torie said, then yawned again. "Ooh.... I need to be up three hours before sunrise to warm the ovens, so if people don't mind... I might have a bit of a nap." She yawned again, then smiled. "A cat nap." "Jenny, there's a lamp and some oil and candles in the cabinet by the door," she said. "Would you light a few? And if it makes you feel better we can bar the door. Right after Wendy and Valkyr get back, anyway." Truthfully, she was a little annoyed with Valkyr. He'd been gone for a while now, likely called back to his father's shop. But he could have popped in first. She leaned over and looked at Elaine. "Will your animals be ok out there?"

    Ok. We shall assume there are no rampaging animals then:). I'll post when I'm in front of a computer again. Sorry for the delay!

    Quick question, everyone: I have two approaches so far. One is we can either chill in the mill/bakery until night time and then wonder why Wendy and Valkyr haven't returned (see? If you're absent, @carrionjackal, I turn your charrie's absence into a plot point!). This might involve a little timeskip if people are getting bored (personally I'm not! Girly time is fun 👧). But this ignores El's rampaging animals. So the other option is our time is rudely interrupted by rampaging animals (I have no idea where that plot thread would be going, @The Alexandrian, so you might have to take control of that one), and then we discover that people are missing and start addressing that. Thoughts?

    Torie went from feeling an awkward do-I-tell-him-or-don't-I as she watched Reitu make the shoes, to one of appreciation as she watched him labour on over the better part of an hour. She let him grab her massive, dinnerplate-sized paws and measure them, then fit the shoes to them, adjusting them again and again. "Thank you, Reitu. You have a good soul," she said, smiling over at him as he affixed the boots to her feet. She hadn't worn boots since she'd taken animal form, at least five years ago. It felt very strange, and she noticed a little too late one back leg was flicking with a desperation to get the boot off, as if it had a mind of its own. At last the main meal came around. Those preparing the food insisted on cooking it before serving it to Torie, even though she would like nothing more than to eat the heart out of a raw buck every now and then. Nevertheless she took to her meal with gusto. Torie had a magically-enhanced appetite at the best of times, and after a whole day walking it had virtually doubled. Torie was initially a little miffed that Azul had moved his plate away from her, though then she picked up on what he said about cats. "I thought this tasted really stringy for deer," she said, looking down at the bone on her large wooden plate. "This is kind of like cannibalism for me... isn't it? Oh well," she said, and started stripping off the last bits of flesh from around the joints. When she was finished she waved over to Simot to fetch her some more - it was always the job of the children to serve the adults during meal time. But Simot shook his head and pointed at Chief Kasat, who shook his head. Why? Torie said with a shrug, and Kasat smiled his old, wrinkly face and patted his own lean stomach, then pointed to Torie. Torie rolled her eyes and looked away, eyes drifting to Azul's plate again. "Are you going to eat all that?" she said.
