    Post by Noctis X'ail on 12th October 2020, 1:50 am

    Noctis cursed himself aloud as he climbed the slippery mountain path that leads to God knows where. Noct was lost, he knew he was lost, but being stubborn, he refused to stop and ask for directions at that small hut he passed several miles ago, but with the snow falling, there was no way he was gonna be able to retrace his steps now, and so he begrudgingly pressed onward.  A half-hour later, Noctis let out a guttural yell punching the first thing near him, the very much immovable stone face of the mountain. This was followed by shouting and cursing, which echoed off the mountain pass walls and the valley below.

    Noctis sighed angrily as he was lost, cold, and now his left hand throbbed painfully due to his less than brilliant decision to punch something made of granite. "You're a damned fool for coming out here.... alone." he said aloud to himself as he continued his climb " Matter of fact, I am so damn dumb that I am likely going to freeze to death on this godforsaken mountain," he said aloud like he was having a conversation with someone, but there was nothing but the wind and the valley floor below around to hear him. After another half hour of climbing up the slippery slope, the snowstorm finally let up, and the mountain pass opened up into a plateau.

    Noctis beamed slightly that the snow had finally decided to let up, but more so the fact he was no longer climbing up an inclined plane. 'Now, if I could just find some way to warm up and relax for a little bit, I would be in great shape.' he thought to himself as he rubbed his hands together in a weak attempt to warm the frigid appendages enough so that he could flex them without it feeling as though daggers were stabbing his joints. It was at that moment Noctis noticed steam like haze rising up a few hundred feet away. The haze was rather thick and obscured vision quite well from such a distance. He smirked to himself, thinking, 'No way my prayers were answered that fast, there has to be a trade-off somewhere.' he thought as he slowly walked toward the almost mirage-like haze his feet dragging through the snow, barely making a sound. As he got closer, he thought he could see a figure in the haze already in the hot spring, and he was about to say something when he took a step and heard a twig snap under his foot the sound like a gunshot echoing off the mountain peak for all to hear.

    When one person has a hell of a time visiting a subzero land of ice and snow another has it much easier. Samira didn't go out of her way to visit Snowfall Island just because or be very unprepared for the journey. That would have been suicidal and a strange train of logic to ride on. No. She had some free time to herself to get away from jobs, missions, and whatever else was typically brought to her attention that required her skill set or magical capabilities. That day, she had chosen to visit a place she had not yet been to before. A snowy island that had once been a resort location but had it's environment drastically altered by the magic of an unnamed ice mage that desired it to be cold. It was a legend, of course. There had been nothing to prove that, that is what transpired so long ago. It was still interesting though, and so her curiosity brought her there. Maybe she could find traces of truth to that legend. Traces of the powerful magic that had been used to completely change a small piece of the world. That was an exciting thought.

    The cold climate didn't bother Samira that much, or at all really. She got by with lightweight insulated layers and a parka. In truth, she probably could have worn her normal everyday outfit and gotten by just as she would in the warmer climate of Fiore. The passive protection of her fire spirits gave her warmth, which was why she needed very few layers to begin with. If she had wanted to, she could have called on more power than that to make even the parka redundant. However, it was not necessary. She preferred only using what was required, and she was in no dire need of such heat.

    Her journey through the mountains had taken her to a hot spring. A curious finding considering the legend of the island. How had a hot spring managed to survive the icy blast of magic that powerful mage had used? Was it even a natural one? One that was the result of subterranean volcanic activity no one knew existed? Or had some other traveling mage come through at some point and made it? Maybe even that great ice wizard of the past desired one even. Curious. Such a minor thing had such mystery.

    The Wizard Saint had no interest in going in at first. She wasn't cold, and she wasn't there for a relaxing soak. Yet, she did find herself getting inside the hot water. The nudging of her summoning spirits was the cause of that. There was no harm in taking the time to enjoy a few minutes there. There were natural benefits, and they too themselves wanted to soak themselves in the warmth. So, she listened to them and humored them with their idea. Although, she ignored the one that insisted she jump in there completely nude. Samira was not that sort of person, and they were reminded of that. Instead she had in mind to wear what any sane person would wear, in her opinion at least. The parka was set aside with the other supplies she had been carrying, and the clothes she wore began to disperse into swirling particles, the black woolen outfit being replaced by a swimsuit that appeared little by little as the former vanished the same way. Gratitude would be given to the spirit that had made the swimwear so quickly and replaced the outfits.

    Some minutes had passed, quietly and with no interruptions. The only sound that had been in that entire area was the voice of Samira, who was talking to the voices in her head. The voices of her spirits, of course, and not some dose of insanity. Not that many could tell the difference if they were unaware of those seemingly invisible individuals. She was unaware of someone approaching. It hadn't even occurred to her that it was even possible for someone else to be there at that same time. She was in the middle of nowhere! Then, there was the sound of something snapping. A random twig perhaps. One that had probably fallen from the very few trees or shrubs that had managed to evolve to survive the harsh temperatures of the island.

    Samira immediately stopped her talking and cast her gaze around, standing up fully while attempting to make anything past the haze. The thought of using magic to see more crossed her mind, but she thought it was unnecessary. Her nerves calmed. It was probably a wild animal passing by. It was the more logical and realistic assumption. She relaxed more and lowered herself back into the water. Lower and lower until she was completely submerged. For a good while she remained there, completely unaware that the wild animal was more than she originally guessed it to be.

    All That Glitters is Snow Empty Re: All That Glitters is Snow

    Post by Noctis X'ail on 17th October 2020, 7:32 pm

    Noctis, lost in his own thoughts, had completely missed the faint talking ahead of him. His blood had run cold the moment he stepped on a twig... on a snow-covered mountain.. with no trees... The realization dawned on him that maybe whoever was up ahead had placed the twig there as a sort of warning bell. 'Just your luck, Noct you try and go off and find yourself and end up in the middle of the snow... on a mountain in the middle of who knows where with some potential threat.' He thought to himself as he stood there frozen. Still just barely able to make out the shape in the mist like haze.

    Noctis had never been one for subtlety, but perhaps now was a good time for it as he had no idea whom he was potentially dealing with and did not want to end up in some shallow snow grave on the top of a lonely mountain. He realized he could do a few things in his current situation, turn into a cat, which would leave him virtually defenseless but unassuming, or he could attempt to sneak up on whom or whatever decided to take a bath on the top of a mountain. That was another question that plagued him 'Who in the hell is crazy enough to take a dip on the top of a mountain in the middle of a snowstorm in these temps?' he gripped his head, pulling at his hair in frustration. So many questions he wanted to be answered, but he couldn't afford to waste time thinking about frivolous things.

    Now at six foot six inches Noctis was not small, tiny or easily concealed so why he got it in his mind that he could sneak his huge self up on someone was beyond any comprehension. Perhaps the cold had addled his cognitive abilities only the heavens knew but that's the path Noctis went with. It would have been a funny sight to anyone watching as he slowly crawled through the fresh powder trying not to crunch in the snow as much as possible. There was definitely minor crunching as he crawled close. The snow was also chilling him to the bone as his clothes slowly became saturated with water and sweat.

    Crawling was a slow and arduous task and he had been moving so slowly that he began to shiver from the cold 'Brilliant thinking there, slick.' He thought to himself as he continued his slow forward progress. 'Let's just lay down in the snow and crawl over five hundred feet.' He thought as he chided himself mentally. He was exhausted, hungry, and cold, but most of all, who wanted to know who was mad enough to be up on this mountain with him were they lost too, or perhaps they just enjoyed a dip in the middle of a snowstorm. Noctis went to place his hand in the middle of his muse filled crawling to keep himself occupied when there was another loud and sharp resounding crack ' YOU HAVE GOT TO BE RESHING KIDDING ME.' He said as he screamed internally. Noctis sprung quickly to his feet, sprinting the last ten yards. Though as he ran through the haze into the warmth, it never occurred to him that the rocks surrounding the hot spring might be slick. So with the grace of an elephant on rollerskates, Noctis burst into view only to slip and fall face-first into the spring.  Everything from that point forward happened in slow motion, and the last thing Noctis saw was a gorgeous woman in a bikini, and then everything went black.

    Well, as any other normal human, Samira did still need to breathe. The woman resurfaced from the waters that she had submerged herself in. Nothing was out of the ordinary during her time under the water it seemed. Everything was the same. A wild animal it must have been then. She was content with that seemingly accurate assumption. If it had been a person then surely they would have come along by now. Instead there was just her, and she was glad for it.

    Some more time had passed with her being in relaxed peace. All good things had to come to an end though. In more ways than one. Her original thought was that it was just time to get out of the springs and move on. After all, it wasn't healthy to stay in one for too long, no matter how relaxing it was or how nice it felt. Any longer and it was possible that she would fall asleep in those waters. Plus, she needed to get a move on with her explorations. Nothing would get done if she dawdled for too long. However, her peace would be brought to a halt by something else instead.

    A quite noticeable loud cracking sound shot through the veil of silence. Close too. Closer than the random twig snapping sound from earlier. Her attention immediately focused on the direction it came from. What she could see through the haze of the springs was something running towards her. Humanoid shaped rather than animal. Samira got tense and prepared for... well why would anyone want to attack her way out there anyway? Her mind knew it was silly to think she was in any kind of danger from some random person. Not even a bandit or thief would try to ambush people on some frozen mountain top barely anyone traveled through. Still, her nerves and body told her she needed to react.

    A small barrier formed around her body, covering her as if it were a sparkly bubble. Although it would soon prove to be an unneeded form of defense. A figure burst right on through the mist and instantly slipped and fell right into the water. The celestial bubble popped, as if indicating her own mind had been popped and blown after witnessing what had just transpired. If that was a crazy bandit that took his business all the way out there he sure was a clumsy one. Samira blinked those emerald eyes of hers and stared at the ripples that had formed in place of where the person had fallen. She stood there, waiting for him to resurface and find out if he was someone to be concerned about or not. Blink blink. She waited some more. Blink blink blink. He... wasn't coming back up, was he? Well that was a problem unless he knew how to breathe underwater. She couldn't very well take the risk of leaving him down there to try out the underwater breathing theory, however.

    "He Bo, if you could help with this I would be grateful." To others, she would seem to be speaking to no one. In actuality, she was talking to one of the many spirits that had connected with her mind long ago. They were already aware of everything, having listened and seen it all for themselves. He Bo had already begun to act on his summoner's thoughts before she had finished giving the request audibly. The spring waters swirled and began to light up with celestial energy from the spirit's presence. He was composed of a magic water that could move as its own entity even if he blended well with the warm waters of the spring. Finding the unconscious person was easy. Getting him out of the water was even easier. The spirit enveloped the stranger in the sparkly waters and then shot him out and towards the surface edge like a cannon. Samira could only sigh as the man shot through the water and landed roughly. Perhaps she should have advised a more gentle approach. Well, that was something to deal with later. For now, she needed to make clear as to his status.

    Samira removed herself from the pool and walked over towards where the unconscious man lay, carefully of course. She didn't need to repeat his phenomenal slip and trip mistake. Being out of the water was colder to be sure, but also negligible. Its heat spread even outside of it, keeping the area warm enough still. As she approached, she could easily tell he wasn't human. He had the features of what she would expect someone from Joya to have; cat-like. Already the woman already cringed inwardly at the fact he shared Joyan traits. They had a habit of being far too friendly and far too flirtatious for her liking. She did pause her approach because of that, but she continued it after a quick thought and realization. There was an all too familiar mark that she could see. One that was only slightly visible under the tail end of the now completely drenched white shirt the man wore. It was the mark of Sabertooth, a guild she was a member of as well. It was of no surprise that she didn't recognize him. Keeping up with new members was a near impossibility when she was constantly absent from the guild itself. It was amazing enough that she knew the names of the few she did. Now there was even more of a reason to make sure he would live to see another day, or at the very least the next five minutes.

    Once close, she sat down beside him and checked him over with a glance. There were no injuries besides the one on his head. Good. Nothing too serious. That could easily be healed. So she attempted it. It was a simple spell really. Her hand began to glow with a pale blue energy and she would place her hand on the injury to heal it. As for him maybe probably possibly drowning just a bit... he seemed to be breathing so maybe he was fine in that regard? She didn't really know, nor did she have any intentions on giving basic CPR herself. Assuming she knew how to correctly do that to begin with.

    Post by Noctis X'ail Yesterday at 12:30 am

    Noctis had hit his head on a rock underwater during his slip and fall, which consequently knocked him unconscious; while unconscious, Noctis was starting to experience the same nightmare he experienced every time he closed his eyes. The same scene played out before him every time like it was on replay without a way to pause or stop it. Noctis woke from his unconscious state with a scream, which was then followed by extreme confusion.

    Noctis shot up from where he had been lying and looked around only to spot the gorgeous lady in a bikini just sitting there like a guardian angel of sorts. He recoiled back several steps, still looking about in confusion. 'Calm down, Noct or you're going to appear like a mental patient off his meds.' he thought to himself, trying to calm his breathing and slow his pulse. "w-who are you? And did you do... anything... weird to me while I was unconscious?" he asked as he patted himself down, checking for any missing limbs or body parts. It was at that point he realized his guild tattoo was visible.  Nocts eyes narrowed slightly, and he became very suspicious as an ethereal sword appeared in his hand, and he took a defensive posture.

    His mind raced at a mile a minute, going over all the possibilities of why a gorgeous woman was out here in the middle of nowhere and in a bikini no less. So many questions were had and very few answers he had for them; it was infuriating. Noctis was fairly certain this woman was likely crazy beyond comprehension to be out here in that, in this weather was something only a crazy person would even think about doing. That is if crazy people actually thought about anything. Noctis thought about making a run for it, but he was still soaked and wouldn't make it a mile with the temperature dropping and his clothes soaked.

    "So... What are we going to do about this?" he asked curiously as he stared her down over the edge of his blade; the tip was clearly pointed at her defensively. Noctis was fairly certain that whoever this person was, they were likely capable of dropping him like a sack of potatoes in a single hit and before he even knew what happened. Still, he couldn't leave as he could already feel the cold tendrils of the air outside, reaching for him.

    The injury had healed completely as the spell took full effect. It hadn't taken long. Seconds perhaps if she had been counting. The energy faded and she retracted her hand back to her side. Now all that was left to do was wait and see if he woke up. It wouldn't be very kind of her to ditch him in that state and be easy prey for whatever creatures might be lurking around. The warmth of the springs was a likely attraction for any sort of creature. There was a curious thought though as she glanced at him again. Those feline ears stood out. Unfortunately he lacked the supremely fluffy tails that Aiyana had, and admittedly Samira was reminded that she wanted to see how soft those were back then. Even though the kitsune had given her permission to do so, Samira had declined back then. It seemed inappropriate. Presently, the urge to see how soft the ears were and compare them to Bastet's or even Anhur's was there. It would have to be resisted, however. If she considered it inappropriate with Aiyana, who had given permission, then it was even more inappropriate to sate her curiosity then with the feline-like individual unconscious and unaware. So disappointing.

    Samira had just got done sighing from her inner conflict when the unconscious man suddenly sat up, quite awake and quite alive. That was great! He was breathing after all! Yes, her heart might have nearly popped out of her chest from the loud unexpected scream and his sudden movement, but he was alive. Her mini heart attack would pass once her body got over that surprise. The Joyan man was obviously confused and seemed to have a rough time calming himself down. That was understandable. He had nearly drowned after hitting his head. Yet, the words that came out of his mouth caused the summoner to arch a questioning brow. Not so much that he didn't know of her. That was a refreshing circumstance that didn't happen all too often those days. The last time had been when she met Zachary. Samira was grateful for the rare encounters where people didn't know her. She didn't have to live up to certain expectations nor did she have to see people acting weirdly around her because of her titles and supposed power. It was the second question of his that she found bizarre. The man had even gone so far as to pat himself down. Was he checking to see if she stole anything from his pockets, or was he looking for wounds where she might have stolen some of his organs? Her mouth opened, clearly wanting to say something, but she closed it when his eyes narrowed and his posture changed. An ethereal sword appeared in his grasp, to which he wasted no time in pointing it at her defensively. Well that got awkward very quickly.

    Silence was the only reply she could give him while she stared at him. Truthfully she didn't know what to make of the situation. It was awkward, strange, and yet somehow positively hilarious. Her mind was full of laughter, not from her, but the echoes of her spirits that were witnessing the events occur in their own little corner of her mindspace. More than that though it was very new. That was the first time anyone had ever accused her of doing anything "weird" while they were unconscious. Simply unbelievable.

    In time, he seemed to get his thoughts in order enough to ask yet another question. "What are we going to do about this?" A very interesting question if not a bit redundant. Samira didn't think there was a need to do anything about anything. "Do about what?" Samira asked sincerely as she continued sitting there, unmoving despite the other having a sword drawn. She wasn't concerned about that. He Bo still lurked in the hot spring waters, and she was perfectly capable of defending herself just as she was if he turned to the offensive. Not that she wanted it to resort to that, but he seemed to be slightly unstable thus far with his mannerisms and far fetched assumptions.

    It occurred to her that maybe that kind of answer would not be one a skittish man would enjoy. She laughed lightly, covering her mouth as she did so in a bad attempt of hiding it. It was rude, but it was just such a new and humorous experience that it couldn't be helped. "I am sorry. I will rephrase. There is nothing to be done because there is no issue here other than the one you are attempting to create. You fell into the springs and hit your head." Samira raised a hand and motioned over towards the springs, where the water was now sparkling with He Bo's presence mixed in it. "Instead of letting you drown I had one of my spirits extract you, and I healed your head injury. If you consider that to be 'weird' then you are free to jump back in and complete the drowning process after I have left these springs if you so desire it. I recommend that you do not attempt it, however. I would not enjoy the thought of a fellow Sabertooth mage practicing such absurd activities." If the Joyan took the time to notice, he would see the mark of the guild in a dark green coloring upon her shoulder. It did have a certain blend with her hair, but the design was still visible through the gaps in the soaked strands.

    "Now is it possible for me to stand without you becoming more alarmed than you already are? I assure you that I have no interest in doing anything more than retrieving my things over there." She pointed over towards where her parka was set, a bit away from the springs by a rock. Her supplies were also over there on top of the coat. That consisted of her knapsack filled with a journal, a book, her iLac, a pen... not much in the survival supply category. There was also a keyring by the knapsack and upon it were a great many keys of differing designs, including a Zodiac Key. Hardly an offensive toolkit if he assumed she was reaching for any normal weapons over there.

    Noctis was slightly stunned when he watched a smile creep its way across the woman's face before it turned into a laugh. Did she think he was funny or something? Was he funny looking? He then realized she was not laughing at him, but she was laughing at how he was acting.  Still confused, Noctis stares at her with his mouth agape.  The woman finally stops laughing long enough to explain that she had her summon thingy save him from drowning and that he came running in, slipped, and fell into the Hot spring. "Well.... this is Awkward"  Noctis said aloud, the sword still pointed in the woman's direction though the tip had dipped slightly.

    To add to the confusion, the woman dropped yet another bombshell on him, stating that she was a fellow guild member. "Wait!" Noctis said, holding up a hand. "If you're with the guild, why have I never met you before ?" he asked curiously. Noctis decided that keeping the sword summoned was unneeded, so he waved his hand, and the sword vanished back into thin air.  Noctis took several steps forward after this and realizes he had been staring at her; he blushed, turning around rubbing the back of his head.  The woman then asked if she could go to her things, which she pointed out was over by a near by rock. Noctis nodded without turning around. "Um, sure... While you're at it, could you ... uh get dressed." Noctis asked, slightly embarrassed that he had been staring at her.

    Noctis was a ball of emotions and confusion; his heart raced... He clearly found the women attractive, which only prompted more questions. When was the last time he had been attracted to a woman? Was he over the whole incident from five years ago?  Noctis screamed internally ' Why is it every time I think I have it figured out life throws me through another loop?' he mumbled as he gripped his head, pulling on his hair.  It took a few minutes, but Noctis finally got a handle on his emotions and realized he didn't know the woman's name. "By the way... What's your name?" Noctis asked over his shoulder, still not facing the woman and hoping she had finally put some clothes on.

    Speaking of clothes, his clothes were still soaked, and considering he didn't plan on staying indefinitely on top of the mountain, they needed to dry out. So Noctis stripped down to his boxers and placed his sopping wet clothes across the dry heated stones allowing them to dry out while waiting to continue his conversation with the woman who claimed to be a guildmate. Granted, she was gorgeous and easy on the eyes, but he knew nothing about her, and as the saying went, feast with your mouth, not your eyes.
