Re: January 6, Year 6 - Anklebiters

on October 28th 2017, 9:15 pm
(( I'm assuming that, even though they're on the list, that the SD characters haven't immigrated yet? I was looking forward to introducing Black Sun. (Who I renamed Black Rose, if you don't remember. I'm waiting for Sky before we post with Spider and Rhapsody, and I might play a SD pup myself, I'm not sure yet. ))

Slowly, as the cool desert air begins to drift into the  burrow, a figure stirs slightly.  The warm brown, speckled figure of Penelope raised her head as she gazed around with her startlingly bright blue eyes.  It's been a hard few months for everyone, but as evident by everyone's slim features, the Anklebiters have struggled perhaps more than any mob in the area.  The drought had caught them off guard, having already been vulnerable, as as a result their numbers have really been depleted.  It started with the death of Twig, who sacrificed himself for the group's safety by standing up to Voldemort.  They had lost many members since, and worst of all, the mob STILL had no structure.  They were beginning to feel the effects of this misfortune, but they wouldn't be able to go on in this state... Although still unaware of the Unspeakables, and thus oblivious to the dangers lurking nearby, Voldemort is still a presence that frightens her, and many other members of the mob... As Penelope stood, she narrowed her eyes.  She and the other Anklebiters have experienced a lot the last couple of years... of course she was still frightened... but she wasn't that timid little pup anymore, who was orphaned and became one of the first members of this humble group... This was her family, and she wasn't going to stand aside and let them wither away.  There had been talk of a group effort in leadership, rather than power falling to two individuals.  Strawberry had been the first to point out the danger of giving too much power to one meerkat, and after the results of their rebellion, many members such as Ask, Bianca, Say It, and even Tumble were eager not to follow in their former tyrant's footsteps... they couldn't afford to be so barbaric.  She wasn't sure if all dominant females were like Luchina, but many of the members were insistent on steering as far away from Luchina's path as possible... Most of the original Anklebiters were gone, so she couldn't say for sure, but maybe it was time to make an official plan.  

One golden meerkat standing in somber watch over the burrow grounds is Say It, a lonely figure in the eyes of many, considering that his sister Ask was no longer at his side... She and her friend Flinch were only a few of the desert's casualties, and although their fate was currently unknown, it has left the male in low spirits.  Losing his friend and brother Twig to such extreme circumstances had been difficult for him, but it was nothing compared to the tragedy of losing his one and only sister.  After everything the two of them, and the rest of the group, had been through it was a surprise that Say hadn't lost his mind yet.  Luckily, he hadn't lost all hope yet... after all, he hadn't forgotten all the lives that had been lost for their freedom... It had been a cold victory, but what use was it if he gave up now? The Anklebiters would need to stay strong if they were going to survive... and that included him, too.  He would protect his family just as he had protected Ask... besides... he wasn't the only one who had lost a sibling in these months... he found strength in Tumble, too.  They had a certain kinship... and in their loss, they had grown closer.  Not in the way that he had cared for Strawberry... but, maybe as Twig had been his brother, in a way, Tumble was his sister, even she could never replace his lost littermate... They had to stick together.  As she emerged and sat beside him, he didn't glance at her, but did lean in towards her slightly.  

It was all the reassurance that Tumble needed this morning.  Her spirit wasn't quite as strong as his at the moment; it would take time to heal.  She spent most of her strength trying to put on a brave face for her son, Kopa, and her other two pups Kenna and Keegan.  They and Say were all she had left now, having lost her own mate and her sister long before her brother passed away, along with True Light not long before that. And you couldn't deny that White Night had left a negative mark on her... but with love and patience, she would heal over time.

Sleeping near Penelope, Declan, and James is the innocent, naive figure of Luchina's daughter, Gabby.  Throughout her life, Penelope had spent a lot of time caring for the pups, and it didn't take long for her to refer to the kindly female as her mother. Although she's a few months old now, she's still just as innocent as ever, and quite oblivious to the adults' concerns. Her childlike tendencies may be just what the group needs to cheer up a little; despite being Luchina's daughter, and looking just like her mom, with a select few differences. It seems odd that such a violent meerkat could spawn something so sweet, but maybe that would help to lighten spirits in the Anklebiters...

Re: January 6, Year 6 - Anklebiters

These last couple of months were harsh-- Harsh on all wildlife. Most would try and immigrate in hopes of finding new lands, but not Meerkats. They were mostly tied to their plot of land. Most groups of Meerkats become scattered, falling in tremendous numbers at an alarming rate over the course of a couple of months. A plus was that there was more land for the survivors to inhibit. But that also left most suffering a loss; a death of mate, or pups, or friends. There probably wasn't a single meerkat that was spared from a loss.


Two bony, worn looking meerkats sat from a small distance of the burrow entrance. Both ignored the presence of Say while the duo passed quiet glances at each other. Neither said much but the muted hum, focusing most of their attention on the humble horizon. The major of their dark days were always met with the rising or setting of the sun. Each time, no matter how grim the day was, the sky would paint itself a collage of various colors. It wasn't much, though, it did leave a spark of emotion. An emotion that would leave the two stragglers choked up. It was an encouragement to keep moving. Perhaps the land would be just as pretty as the sky again; even if it was a brief moment.


The lying figure shifted from their belly, pushing them self up with a passive look from over their shoulder to their companion.


Emberflash, only a recent newcomer, moved to perch up on to their hind legs. Dark orbs scanned the bleak horizon, then to the colorful sky. Nothing seemed to be out of place...yet. There weren't many Meerkats up yet, either. Emberflash hadn't familiarize himself with everyone within his new mob just yet. Well, the only meerkat he actually learned more about was Wild-Dancer. After a series of unfortunate events, she clung to the stranger-- almost in a desperate way. Why? He didn't know all the details. Apparently he reminded her of someone she once knew. Emberflash wasn't going to reject such companionship, despite the vague reason.


Wild-Dancer quietly chirped, their voice rough and dry. Would they find decent substance today?


Emberflash flashed a puzzled look. He hummed back, tone gravelly. He wasn't sure? Maybe, only if they worked hard enough for it. And luck, that had a lot to do with it. Most, if not all, of the Ankle Biters went to sleep hungry. Their stomachs screaming and demanding to be filled with something else besides petty ants.


Wild-Dancer blinked. She should've known that. The rains hadn't come for a long time. So why would there suddenly be an overabundance of delicious food? The image of millipedes and worms left her feeling nauseous. Heaving a deep sigh, she turned away, staring at a random direction.

Emberflash have a longing, almost sorrowful stare at the smaller female. It was saddening to see so many youthful lives being tormented from the lack of food. He looked away. They had to keep going. They had to survive. Life may had been relentless on them, but they could push through it.

The ever-changing Xaphan slowly emerged. There was no doubt that he felt victorious and perhaps a little heroic when banishing Voldemort from the Anklebiters months ago, but that ego would always get popped and deflated when remembering that it had come with terrible costs. Because of him, Twig was gone. The drought took even more.

Xaphan didn't know how to lead a group or what to do with a bunch of lost members, but he knew how to protect and would continue to do so until he died. He had even given up nutritious morsels during foraging trips to keep others healthy. He figured he would continue this pattern until...until something changed for the better. Whenever that would be.

He groomed several members before sunning himself on his belly.

Re: January 6, Year 6 - Anklebiters

Yeyen, a recent addition to the group along with her mother and grandmother, is up early and greets the members who are already awake. She has never been in a group like the Anklebiters before, but she takes everything in stride. She's growing up very quickly, and - despite the drought - at four months old she looks very good, with a healthy coat and a nice size, even if she's a little lean like everyone else. She's been maturing a little, too. She still has an energetic, independent streak but now she's eager to help with chores like clearing the burrow entrance or trying her hand at sentry duty. She's been trying her best to make friends in the Anklebiters, too, but considering this is already the third group she's been a member of, she almost doesn't know how to make friends. Moving around so much in her young life has made it hard for her to form personal relationships outside of Papau and Alessa, but the most she can do is just be open and friendly and try to be the best mob member she can be.

Papau, as usual, is right behind Yeyen. She feels bad for her daughter, that she's had to go through so much uncertainty in her short life already. From being born in the Kitties and shunned due to Papau's subordinate status, to merging into a super group in the Villains, to getting lost one day and wandering the Kalahari, chased by other mobs until they were able to find a haven in the Anklebiters... it hasn't been easy. But Yeyen is still here and growing into a fine young meerkat, and that's all Papau could hope for. The struggles of motherhood were tough but worth it just to see Yeyen grow up and succeed. Papau has been doing her best to take a step back and not be so overprotective of her only daughter, and for the most part it's been working. But at the same time, she's quite reserved. Her little "clan" is the only group of meerkats she is really comfortable with. Sure, she's friendly towards other meerkats that she meets, but she finds it hard to open up and be herself, especially now being so new to this group and their strange, non-dominant-having ways.

Alessa is still asleep below ground. Some things never change, and her being a late riser is one of them. Alessa may be an unusual meerkat with some strange mannerisms, but underneath it all she is a strong meerkat. She's led her daughter and granddaughter all over the Kalahari in search of stability. From her own group, to being the dominant female of the Leftwich, to being dethroned, leaving in search of a better life, joining the Kitties, merging into the Villains, being on her own with her little family, and finally joining the Anklebiters, she has gone through a lot and come through it all on top. Some may underestimate her due to her unique personality, but Alessa has definitely been able to keep it together and keep moving for the sake of a better life. One recent hardship she had to face, though, was the loss of her best friend Alicia. Alicia wasn't part of the family, but Alicia was the one who taught her how to live life like a subordinate and protected her from the wrath of Pear and Mzuri. She might as well have been part of her little family. But one day, during a predator scare, Alessa, Papau, and Yeyen lost Alicia and could never find her afterward. The loss was tough, but she had to keep moving on for the sake of her family. And eventually they were able to join the Anklebiters. However, despite finding a new haven in a merciless world, Alessa has been having troubles of her own. She's never been in a group with... no dominants? In fact, the Anklebiters seem to eschew the idea of dominants completely. Alessa has had to catch herself from exhibiting her own dominant female tendencies in order to try to fit in. She's just used to that position even though she hasn't been a dominant for a while, and with no one leading she almost automatically wants to step up and lead. But she has to remember the lessons Alicia taught her and rein it in and fit in, for her daughter and granddaughter's sake.

OOC: Not gonna post with the SD crew yet, until I know more of how we're introducing them lol

Re: January 6, Year 6 - Anklebiters

(( I'm still waiting for Sky before posting here, actually >.< But I guess I could post with Black Rose... ))

As the sun continued to rise, so did one female's predicament. What exactly was she doing here? She wasn't sure anymore... the Shadow Deaths hadn't been immune to the drought, but with their large numbers, had still managed to thrive. Makuta had left in hopes of gathering more force for the group, just like in the old days... which had left her feeling more bold than she would have been otherwise. Black Rose had accepted her father's and grandfather's teachings, but it had always been evident that she didn't quite have the Shadow Death nature in her heart. Deep down, Black Rose had the heart of a Kitty. The Shadow Deaths had always scared her, and through her adopted pups, a side to her began to show that wasn't exactly... appealing. Not to say that Shadow Deaths couldn't feel affection, or that mothers didn't love their pups, but her maternal instincts went a step further. She didn't want to see them fight, and get hurt. She couldn't teach them the way that Thorner had taught her. She and her pups had already received punishment... and Makuta had threatened to take them away from her, or worse, to end their lives. That was the last straw for Black Rose, so she had done the only thing she could do... Black Rose had taken her pups, and ran away. Now that she had done it, the poor thing was terrified... she knew her grandfather would stop at nothing to find her... and end her. Not knowing that the Anklebiters burrow was nearby, Black Rose stopped and looked at her pups. Most of them weren't hers... most of them had been Shadow Death pupnap victims, but she loved them all the same. She took a minute to cuddle them, desperate never to lose them... but what was she going to do now...?

Xaphan had taken a short break by laying on his belly and sunning himself. He resembled his younger self back when he was nothing but lazy at the Lavas. His ears twitched and he picked his head up, smelling the air. He sensed a stranger, and since many "strangers" visiting the Anklebiters tended to be ruthless killers, he wasted no time jumping back to his feet, stretching his body as far as it could go while he tried scanning the horizon for any outsiders.

Re: January 6, Year 6 - Anklebiters

While Alessa continues to sleep underground, Yeyen helps to clean out the burrow entrance. It's a simple job, really, and she hasn't quite gotten the hang of being good at sentry duty yet. Plus, sentry duty is way too much pressure. Cleaning out the burrow is a breeze and if you don't do it correctly, then others may get annoyed but at least it's not life or death.

Upon seeing Xaphan perk up, Papau is instantly on alert as well. She is extremely over-protective and sometimes paranoid of any threats to the group, mostly for Yeyen's sake. She looks around, her eyes boring into every bush and tree, ready to flee at a moment's notice.
--
In the burrow with Black Rose and the other pups, Gligar is ready to get a move on. Being so young, he doesn't really fully understand the predicament of their situation. He just goes about his day as the bright, merry youngster he is. He smiles and nuzzles Black Rose briefly before getting up and running around the burrow, anxious to emerge and get on with the day.

Tyra sneers at Gligar. He was always so energetic and excited and... happy. Always getting in the way. But the little twerp does have a point - it's time to get out the burrow. She emerges, her black fur shining in the morning sunlight. The events that led to her being with this ragtag band are hazy, but she's here with them now and not with the Shadow Deaths, and she needs to make the best of the situation. Still, growing up in the Shadow Deaths for so long has given her some bad habits. She isn't afraid to reveal her nasty side when someone annoys her too much, but at the end of the day Tyra is just a grump and is overall harmless.

Andra is awake now too, and emerges after Tyra. Like Tyra, she too has the signature Shadow Death black fur. She calmly grooms herself, being very particular about every hair being in the right spot. Andra has developed into a very prim and proper young meerkat, which has made the transition into adolescence quite hard. She isn't used to having to forage for her food like some.... commoner. Adults are just supposed to bring her food, right? That's what they're there for? Why should she have to get her claws and paws all dirty? Ugh, the audacity... she licks her paw a couple more times, then stretches it out, admiring her handiwork.
