Rise is… a good, capable sort of fellow, a friendly, patient bloke with a wry smile and solemn eyes. He wasn't always like this - having led a very embarrassing youth - but ever since the last incident of his colthood, he has rehauled himself for the better. Now the head of a wholesale preserved foods retail business, he adheres to a strict working routine each day which he manages to enjoy. It reminds him of the less embarrassing parts of his youth.

The work is for meaning, not for gain. He's always looking for willing Kimeti to help out in his business and this be where all the trouble starts...

OOC Notes: When some stupid git tells you "oh look customs!!!" and you get one for 'im with much sneaky delight, don't imagine that you're the only one with the smart idea. Also, don't imagine that the ridiculously amused colourist will do anything but make 'em all fancy and laugh at you later.
dramallama original naming dream until Jun told me how to troll:
eyes cast upwards, immutably watching the sun slowly sweeps across to light and returns to dim the sky. He thought it to be endless. Till the very last time it burned down and the world was dark. Yet still, he knew - "the sun also rises."

The Sun Also Rises is emo (no more)
NOTE: SHITTY. (SOMETIMES) EMO. WRITING!!!

. Foal .
The bindings broke and he tumbled out, hooves first, into the murky swampside - several layers of mud collapsed before the ground's tumult stilled and he was left splayed thigh-deep in dark swirling waters. He craned his head towards the gap in overhead branches as sunlight filtered through in beams. After a while the beams broke up and moved on to be replaced by glittering darkness. The mud bore his imprints, he had no impetus to move elsewhere. His stillness, spare the movement of his jaw at points, drew and consumed prey. He could only tell from the temperature, the low tides and a distant blurry glow on his eyelids that something, time or otherwise, seemed to be passing...and that the cycle repeated itself all over again.


NOTE: YES. All that's happening is a rooted Kimeti babby emoing in the middle of a swamp. [By the way, your swamps are nothing like ours... the more you know!]

. Colt .
Several, several sun cycles later the moving mangrove tides hadn't consumed him, and conveniently made him stronger - when he felt ready he rose, dripping, from the water to mossy ground made his way in-land.

The congregation of Kimeti made his head spin, and combined with the soothsaying of the swamp, he paced about the trodden areas more lost than before. "What do we do," he asked, reeling and stepping in random geometry, "what do we do with ourselves?"

He didn't like the answers he got. Just living had no purpose and he didn't think he'd be happy living because he was already living as a foal in an endless expanse of nothing. There must've been something more. He went out looking for something more. There is nothing but the swamp. What was beyond the swamp?

Rise was very bad at taking advice and started his journey, steadily moving into increasingly distant areas and possibly treacherously different lands. He started in the early mornings, seeking shelter a little after dusk - he had no idea where he was going, just that it wasn't back, and that it was far more meaningful to use the perpetual passing of days with a force of further purpose.

***
Then he met her.

. Buck .
He made his way back into the main swamp with deliberate steps - examining his surroundings, absorbing as much information as he could to mark his trail (in part, the to which he saw that filly) and making an effort to try, in the very least, to love the swamps since there was nothing else. When he'd returned, he'd grown into a fine buck, and thankfully no one recognised him - largely because he'd spent most of his youth moping alone, and because colts looked very different from the strong, confident build of an adult swamp-goat. Huh.

It was then that he decided to do as that imaginary? filly said, and make the best of it. Yes. Armed with knowledge of slightly more distant lands and an iron will, Rise set on his path to becoming better, faster, stronger...and setting up a wholesale preserved foods retail service. Yessir. Because there is no comparable industry of spirit like an entrepreneurial one.

. Slip Away .
18th February 2011
[ buck ]

the wings stretch; emerging at his own pace
surveying the sky with a half-lidded eye
he comes to slip away


Slip is… almost like an urban legend, except far more gossipy because of the nature of his 'legend'. It tells of a handsome, charismatic manlymeti with dark eyes and a smirk as alluring and perhaps dangerous as sea foam lapping at your hooves. One may only encounter him at night, his light coat tends to attract moonlight and it's difficult to miss his presence. When he speaks - he is confident, noble and possesses slight condescension. The mystery buck rarely talks, however - he seems to prefer expressing his intentions physically...

...there's not much of a dramatic end to the story, other than that does who encounter him are likely to go back and surprisingly or unsurprisingly have babbies. In another society this may be a travesty, but since it's Matope, keep those genes goin'!

. Summer Fades .
25th February 2011
[ doe ]

when trees shed and flowers wilt
she tosses her head and proclaims,
"summer fades, but I'm still here!"


Fade is… an annoyingly vigilant flapper who at once is insistent on enjoying life but yet rears up at any possible sign of any sort of injustice to strictly campaign against it. In other words, she is sometimes a disgrace of a flapper, and generally a bit of an earnest disgrace overall. She may also be a little excitable. Perhaps.

Turtle Soup...
is very fast. For a turtle. If anything he's always moving because he belongs to Fade who frequently bobs in and out of his vision as he toddles along insistently behind her. Turtle Soup's unfortunate name stems from their boss', Rise's, obsession with eating him, thereby making him move even faster.

. Break You Down .
4th April 2011
[ buck ]


a whisper; it says:
i will break you down


Break is… intensely intelligent, and in realising a lack of meaning in the 'meti life has graduated to using that intelligence in blithe, ruthless manners. A fantastic, rather...uh...stylised hunter, he leaves a specialised bloody piece of 'art' at the site of his prey, as if a calling card, with no other trace. It's generally not advisable to be a Kimeti specifically in his way [disposal, it seems, is his speciality] but otherwise, he is a rather unnerving gentleman, especially chauvinistically gracious to ladies with a sinister smile.

Build Me Up...
is fierce, savage and stealthy, just like her owner, but in that way proves to be a bit of a challenge to tame. Perhaps she was offended in their first encounter, where Break took one look and for some strange reason, laughed heartily in the face of this vicious predator. Yet, perhaps this lack of fear is why she follows him...

OOC Notes: To my delight, the video of handpuppet Nettle scored the grand prize of the March art contest, of which I immediately and excitedly shoved to Jun and swapped for his hard-earned semi-custom slot. After quick work of one of my group projects I got this horrendously proportioned concept picture out, and Blue worked impeccably off it to create this handsome fellow. He's essentially the villain of my bunch and inspired by two songs - Stars' Liar and Death Cab for Cutie's President of What, both of which I love dearly.

Build Me Up! Helpfully named by Jun. I won him from the Savage event with a gimmicky poem for the 'it hisses' theme:
A Serpent Meets a Sea-bean
a wing, it flutters
scales soaked in water

a ripple, it brings
seeds float closer in

a strike, teeth snap
pierce into a gap
Surprisingly, it hisses back.


Break You Down is a bad dad.

. Break and Heart Shatter .
Break met her after the Festival, seeing her beauty completely for the first time. They'd flirted, he nipped playfully at her flowers, pushing the dark locks out of her eyes. She was happy. He was pleased that she was happy.

They made children. She had children. He watched her have them, from a distance, stealthy and impassive. He watched her laboriously birth the sacs at places, seemingly deliberately picked, and watched her part from the children. Break counted, there were five foals to be born.

Then the flood came. Break stayed safe, and surveyed the rushing waters. As the waves calmed, he stood and went to search for his children.

They were scattered. He could only find four: so be it. It was a good balance left, two bucks, two does. He would, as he did Heart Shatter, keep on eye on his daughters from a distance - he did not care for the bucks. Break was already more attached to his children than he'd expected.


Break You Down creates a mutant.

The moon was full, casting a eerily illuminating glow over the swamp and the uncovered expanse in which he stood. Break You Down regarded his captive audience thoughtfully, then began his tale without further ado. "You are very aware," he said, "of the intense rivalry - no, not the right term - the bitter feud between birds and snakes, between catching claws and vicious fangs. One always seeks to defeat the other in the violent ways of the animal kingdom: sometimes, the snake wins, preying on a fowl it wraps itself and its unhinged jaw around. Sometimes the bird triumphs, digging its talons into a serpent's angular head and pecking out its vital organs. Always, it is a good show.

But to examine this relationship, we must focus on a specific case. Let us speak of a snake. The snake in question was a highly ambitious creature - its venom and the degree to which its mouth could stretch was rather impressive, and so it took its reckless chances in the swamp. It had - as you could expect from my introduction - a great taste for bird. And so it devoured everything, from the helpless babes to their screeching parents, from the sweetest songbirds to birds of prey. Its successes made it cocky, self-important. It had no fear, no caution. It seemed the snake was sure, that once its gaping maw swallowed its victims, feathers and all, the deed was done.

Most of the time, it would be correct in this assumption. Unfortunately, its latest prey - larger by half and full of fight - was highly problematic. It had annoyingly and stubbornly refused to give, its claws marking a bloody pattern in the scaled skin. It lashed with its wings, the snake struck, fangs sinking into a leg - still it flew, and dealt a vicious peck. The furious reptile engaged in its final move: flinging itself at the fowl, it slithered into a deadly embrace and wrapped the creature up into a lovely, smooth package; down it went, feet first, into the cavernous throat many of its cousins had gone before. In one swift motion, the bird was fully contained within its gullet, ready for digestion."

Break cast a significant look at his audience. "Or so the snake thought. A last desperate blow: the bird flared its magnificent wings. The force of vengeance stretched the snake's throat, and the wings beat ever harder against its fleshy prison - again and again, it swept its wings open, its pinions stiff and straight. Open, close, open, close until the walls started to thin and give; the snake choked, it reared up, helpless in its internal struggle, until the bird's motions forced the scales to part, its prison to bend - the quills tore through sinews and finally the wings burst through the sides of the ill-fated serpent.

It bled. It shuddered. The bird flexed its wings in newfound freedom. After all, there was nothing to fear now that the snake could not continue to live. Its wings settled, contentedly closing around its new pelt." And acting like a very wise Kimeti, Break turned in his steps, and shook his head. "You may think now then, the body should, like any respectable corpse, rot and slough off. Not so! After all, this is a piece about strength's triumph over greed and egotism, and Motherfather works in her own strange ways. The bird-snake shed its old coat, grew its own tail feathers and continued to thrive and grow - indeed, the first occurrence of the feathered 'serpent'. As long as gluttony, narcissism, and that age-old feud exists, there will certainly be more of its winged compatriots to illustrate the ills of such sins."

His tale now finished, Break peered at his audience, the creatures in front of him: the carcasses of a bird and a snake, crudely hollowed and awkwardly mashed together in an unnatural union.

"Lengthy artist descriptions are never feasible," he concluded, smiling wryly and picking the pieces apart. "Besides, this isn't art, this is rubbish."

OOC Notes: If blue wants a pet trade, blue gets a pet trade. I know, bbqMaxxwantedadoe?!?! She was conceived of a long time ago as a far-off 'my only doe ever' in early Kimeti days [haha hi Fade] to match with Jun's You Come Around - essentially, our Stars songmeti.

Widow meets Break

Widow was on one of her nightly walks - the weather was very good today, she noted, no rain and moderate humidity. Such nights were good for her hair, and, so she heard, hunting.

She hadn't run into many night hunters. She figured they were more stealthy than to be around the clear, uncanopied swamp paths she traversed, just so that the moonlight would light her right. Even if she didn't have anything to live for, at least she had her looks.

There was a curious squeaking beyond the foliage that lined this way, and Widow, being Widow, sauntered to investigate. The familiar scent of blood assaulted her senses, and she looked down to see an intricate pattern of red decorating the ground, still yet too fresh to seep into the soil.

The squeaking seemed to be full-on wheezing from the source of blood, a fairly large rat's last breaths. She cast her eyes back to the drawing as the sounds wound down.

It was perfectly silent as she finally noted, "this is quite beautiful, actually."

That was meant for herself, really, she just didn't like the whines of a dying rodent interrupting her. To her surprise, though she did not show it, a shadow emerged from beyond the bushes.

"Thank you." The voice was level, cool and deep - it held little emotion, but she could sense a tinge of appreciation. Such a buck was not to be trifled with, and so she would not play him. Instead, she looked up.

"Very unique." It was genuine, she appreciated such artistry. She did find artists interesting. "You may cease." A chuckle from a buck, bloodstained, his eyes as red as hers, though without the glow.

"I meant it." She smiled, wryly.
"I know."

. Broken Things .
15th Jun 2011
[ buck ]


it's shattered, just pieces;
you can't fix these broken things


Pieces is… determined, somewhat skittish and prone to melodrama, which mostly pertains to an obsession that Break is not. His. Father. And that he has to have killed his real father because, as far as he's concerned, he looks nothing like his 'siblings'. A generally nice boy unhinged, he is mostly sensible in other aspects. Whenever he's distracted from being obsessed about tracking Break down and avenging his real father, that is. Which is not often, unfortunately.

Family History that he doesn't know about yet
[ Break never showed up again after Heart Shatter became pregnant, and the sacs were laid a little while before the great flood. The sacs were washed away in the chaos, and the kids grew up not knowing who their parents and their siblings are... ]

OOC Notes: A desperate goldbribe from early May graduated to an art-bribe early June and we finally snagged us a blue, hehe. Poor fellow was the 'weird' one in the stream, according to blue, but I like him loads and I had an idea for him off the bat. It starts with 'my name is Inigo Montoya...'

In regards to the whole clutch though, I love these guys. This is such a great first breeding to have, and I'm so glad to have caught the stream - all of them are amazing and they went to amazing homes.


Pieces is derp.
Or at least, my horrible writing is...

. meeting Break .

Surviving somehow worked out alright for Pieces, as it did for every other foal, left perfunctorily alone in the swamp. He was a nice boy, who went on his way and kept himself alive, generally polite and neither unfriendly nor welcoming. He watched others fraternise, befriend, build families with a curious eye and a solemn look.

Pieces went out foraging one day, nudging branches apart for a berry bush. He broke through a shrub, found that he'd taken a turn he hadn't intended to, and decided to wander into the clearing anyway. He looked up, following a songbird's flight, until a wetness dampened his hooves - strange, it hadn't rained. He looked down.

He found his hooves covered in red, a dark sinister crimson, starting to rust into the earth.

Pieces recoiled, skitting back, leaving trails away from the blood patterns - the smears of battle (though the one which bled clearly had no chance) swept across the land, savagely yet delicately drawn, and then joined to pool in a shallow hole. He'd destroyed the artwork by stepping into it.

Blood was not unusual to omnivores, but the eerie neatness of the strokes struck the yet unstirred emotions of Broken Things.

He was scared.

There was a faint rustle - not quite audible, but still there, in Pieces' consciousness, fear having eradicated the ability to move. A purposeful rustling, more than the sway of the grasses, more than the clicks from insects, scuttling away.

Another buck entered the clearing, a buck with eyes as red as the blood on his hooves - blood that seemed to travel up his limbs, faded and stained into his fur. Was it blood? He didn't know. The gold was sharp and cutting along his neck, when he turned he found it slicing across his side as well.
He was terrified.

"Ruined already?" He asked, not having met his petrified gaze, peering at the residual mess of hoofprints. "It was moderately fresh..."

Pieces' breathing caught as those lazy, half-closed eyes turned up to him. A flash - he thought he might've seen them widen slightly for a moment - and he said, after a chuckle:

"So it's you.

My son.
"

The last line was airy, nonchalant. Nothing of note.

Pieces could finally speak.
"I - you're - my father? Do I - "

"Have siblings? Of course." He smiled, sinister, proud. "My seed is virile."

His face twisted; he was more embarrassed than he could've ever imagined being.

"Goodbye." He concluded, disappearing into the long grass, leaving Pieces bloodstained and silent.
Eventually his legs collapsed under him.

His mind stayed sharply awake, and he was too shaken to sleep.
Family? Who were they, and how were they like? What had they grown to be?
Were they anything like...
...his father?

Suddenly, Broken Things was alive.

In a hazy maze of mangroves and brush, half-swamp, half-land, all dark, the three siblings, Red Ring of Death, Cue Queue, and Cry More, meet for war games. When they run together, they are Cue Death Cry. Would you like to...play?

Death is… the melee assassin of the pack, his attacks are as aggressive as his ego and he'll insistently push everyone he knows he'll win against into a duel. Patronising, irreverent and cocksure, with a sinister glint in his eye - yeah, he's sizing you up already. Perhaps the one potentially touching aspect is his closeness to his brother Cry, whom he jostles around in his own, so-called 'protective' way: he's his healer, can't let him die.

Okay, so he's just a jerk with the strength to back up his jerkishness. Dangit.

17th Nov 2011
[ larva | foal | filly | doe ]


a rustle, it nears,
bursts out of the foliage
she levels her gaze, says, matter-of-fact:
"when your call comes,
then I'll come running"


Run is… loving, like her father, and sharp-tongued, like her mother. She uses her first-born status to take charge of her siblings' welfare, but though Run can be overbearing, once could scarcely find a bolder leader who would tell that pervy buck in the bushes to step off leering at her sister right now. What is your problem, hah?

17th Nov 2011
[ larva | foal | colt | buck ]


it's a bitter taste, this trial
all i've got is my very best
and it never made the grade.


Best is… true to his word, loyal, domineering and easy to read. He would lead the pack if Run wasn't always taking the 'you're the middle child' tack and somehow getting her way, probably because Dad likes the girls better. His occasional bouts of princely pettiness doesn't get in the way of his work, but it does make him a bit of a d**k to be around sometimes.

27th December 2011
[ buck ]


weighed down, drowned under, torn asunder
leading even under pressure


Pressure is… calm, collected, a natural leader. The burden of guiding others and being a role model is a responsibility he has always expected to have, and with that drattedly immature brother, it is a responsibility that must always manifest. Thank goodness the little sister is so sensible.

Now is… carefree, strong and rougish, a reflection of her Acha specialisation of combat dancing. In the desert she danced against the slashing sand, and came to the swamp to find more challenges beyond the dunes. She may be easy-going, but is a tad untactful; she says and does whatever she wants. Now is generally one of the boys, and likes pretty girls best.

a fight to the finish
back-heel, buck up
no giving up now

was it wrong or right
i'll take you down with me


Recoil is… an emotive and honest friend...except he gets offended and petty pretty quick, especially if he trusted you. A traumatic experience in his early buckhood [unbeknownst to him, an innocent little foal (Jun's Comeback haha)] has caused him to be suspicious and slow to truly trust, though he finds it hard to rein in an impulsiveness that often lands himself in undesirable situations.

. Filament .
4th February 2012
[ colt ]


the sleek sheen of a silky strand
lit - a flare, it burns: filament.


Filament is… a quiet, well-meaning buck who is easily distracted - with his glowing eyes often lowered, he might be mistaken as a great thinker. More often than not, he's simply preoccupied by the little movements of the swamp: the glint of the sun in the water, a spider repairing its web... He hasn't found his purpose in life, but he's willing to enjoy the path on his way.
