Pearl was tired.

She had grown weary of the rhythms that had come to dominate her life since being recruited into Pascale's experiment. Twice, now, she had nested with a male only to lose him. She had lost children, grandchildren. She had been rescued from a life of slavery and placed instead into a different sort of suffering.

But she would not accept it idly.

There were few things she could do give agency to her life...but learning to protect the family she had was certainly one of them.

Phew, made it through. Sort of lost count of how many matches but I think I got there. Pearl and Andrick are now Level 7, Bula is Level 6.

@fenshae Love the story so far! (although Pascale... I can't even find the words for him. reading the first post made him seem like an okay guy, maybe a bit twisted but still trying to do the best thing. now, though.... ) Could I be added to the pinglist?

@Skyeset Absolutely :) Adding you now.

And Pascale is certainly an enigma isn't he. Maybe I'll go write his lore today, while I have a spare minute...

[center][item="almandine goby"] 30-40 matches[/center] Okay I'm back! Today turned out to be kind of a busy day, so no story bits. But I took Bula, Pearl and Andrick into the coliseum. Since I can go one level lower than my highest dragon, I decided to stay in Woodland path a little while longer. Andrick is now Level 8, Pearl is still a 7 (but just barely) and Bula is a 7. Andrick got a Shining Might Fragment because I had one in my inventory and I figured his weird what-am-I-even-doing build could use all the help it could get.

In all the chaos and the heartbreak and the confusion, Pearl had forgotten to name her hatchlings. It seemed like the sort of thing Bhaskar would have wanted to do -- name them himself. Probably call them something flashy. She had hardly known the coatl, and she could not say that she had loved him; but she realized in hindsight that she'd had a certain fondness for him, a fondness that exceeded Andrick's father in some ways. Andrick's father. What had his name been? What had the names of her other children been? It was all beginning to fade, and that frightened Pearl greatly. It was as though she were losing hope. She had so few things left in this world to care about. Protecting her family was of utmost importance. If she could not escape this legacy she had agreed to, she could do her part to ensure its success. But what could she do? She felt like a very small wheel in a very big machine. Perhaps if she understood exactly what it was that she was doing...what was expected of her, and her family line.
