Jocelyn Edelwolfe is the new Alpha! Seija Mulviene is the new Beta, and Grey is the new Delta. Lead Hunter is now Boone Haywood, Head of Border Patrol is now Noelle Ndango!
Fulsi has a standing treaty with the Nakoma, granting limited access to their fresh water.
a while back, the Analoya suffered a suspicious poisoning of their river, luckily with few casualties; the Bellator are suspected of having taken part in it, and there are whispers that Pride leader Wanderer is talking alliance with the Nilda for access to their clean water.
As new leader of the Bellator, Loril has instituted some rank changes. See this thread for more information!

...I can see Eli getting hen-pecked |: ROFL this works. I'll work on a reply m'dear... worry not about sluggish responses seeing as I'm up to my eyeballs in the sh*t that is life |: 0-0 I'll do my best, though (; <3
The way the alliance is set up/will be set up is water rights in exchange for protection. So Fitch could either be with a water-fetching party or he could be patrolling for the Nakoma. Lycaon would probably be the liaison, essentially keeping an eye on the Fulsi and making sure they're staying where they're supposed to. Do you want to start or should I? And if I'm starting, are we doing water or patrol? xD

Fitch tends to patrol, I guess? Though if there was a water gathering party... he'd be overseeing I suppose or at least one of the chaperons overseeing the thing. I'm happy with whatever in all honesty...
I officially hate you for piquing my muse for Eli |: This is insane. |:

Ooo.. sorry it took so long for me to reply to this! That sounds just about right for him to be quite honest! He... has a habit of getting himself into sticky situations. Uh-- I think you're on hiatus, kinda like me atm? BUUUUTTT... I am interested :) Fo sho <3

ACE & FITCH , these two should definitely meet. they probably would have already because they are both fulsi, and ace used to be a scout before he became a medic. also, they're both friesian shifters so they have that in common. how long has fitch been in the m? maybe when ace first got there fitch gave him some tips about shifting and stuff? otherwise maybe fitch can offer some pointers now, some secret horsey stuff that ace has not yet discovered? ace is pretty good at the human stuff and hand-to-hand combat, but there's still heaps he doesn't know about his shift. so yeah, i reckon they could get along quite well. maybe fitch takes ace under his wing as a sort of younger brother type thing? cause there's quite a large age gap between the pair of them. ummm yeah, that's really all i can think of /fail/ if there's anything you want to add or whatever lemme know
Oo... yes, Ace and Fitch would be an interesting combo! Definitely big brother-little brother thing going on there I would imagine! Fitch has been in The M for about 5 or so years? He's been shifting since he can remember, basically... But I really think that they could get on, for sure :D He's one of those diamonds in the rough characters... y'know? Sort of rough on initial presentation but friendly and warm. He's fairly good at human stuff, but a sparring partner would be seriously awesome (;
I have a couple of other characters if you're interested? - Emery McAllister - Bali Starling shifter - Fallen - Deacon Rice - Black Flying Fox shifter - Carna - Bennett - Dingo Retromorph - Nilda - Elijah Levy - Pine Marten shifter - Fallen
ACE & FITCH , yes indeed. i like all of this. they can bro stuff up and just be awesome together. they can spar together, because ace is out of practice since he became a medic. it was certainly quite a switch from scout to medic for the boy. but he's been in the M for about 3 years now and he's doing alright. he and fitch shall have fun horsey times too xD
ASHER & BENNETT , i reckon these two should meet. it's totally not the aussie part of me wanting to thread with a dingo they both have telepathy however asher is really struggling with it... he only just acquired it and basically has no idea what he's doing. he's my birdy retro and i reckon it'd just be interesting to throw these two together and see how it goes. awkwardly reading each others' minds and not meaning too =P yeah, i dunno what else. they could either get along well or just hate each other... but asher tries to make a good impression most of the time. lemme know if you've got any other ideas.
ACE & ELIJAH , homg can they meet? ace would be wary at first because he's not sure about people who aren't in his ring. but i reckon they'd actually get along alright. i can't promise that ace won't rub him the wrong way, but he'd try to get elijah to be more optimistic and outgoing. ace always likes to point out one positive thing every day, simply to make the place less dull, and he'd definitely try to push this outlook onto elijah just for fun. but ace would probably still be a bit wary about the ring difference and stuff because he's loyal to a T. but yeah. feel free to add and stuff.
ACE & DEACON , ace isn't the biggest fan of carna... so i dunno what'd happen here. maybe they'd bond over being all medicine happy and stuff. what does that even mean? i'll stop now before i hurt your plotting bone...
ACE & EMERY , she seems to nice. i almost don't want her to meet ace... because ace can be a douche at times, especially when women are involved. although emery's quite a bit older, so i don't think he'd be too douchey around her. but no promises there =P i reckon they'd just have some pretty random conversations though. they'd probably get along alright if she catches him in a good mood. yeah. my brain's just about dead now. lemme know how this is.

I kind of love Deacon. Just thought I'd tell you. And I happen to have a Carna that I also love. SO, WHAT TO DO WITH THIS? I'm thinking that it might be fun for Deacon and my boyo, Lyric Shikov, to meet. I think it would be interesting if Lyric was maybe injured in the field or something, and Deacon happens to be the one who patches him up... but he doesn't realize that Lyric is the delta of Carna. So maybe they end up having this quiet little power struggle the whole time, with Lyric kind of amused and kind of offended, and Deacon wondering what to do with Lyric being abrasive, kind of arrogant, and generally rather bossy? I think it would be fun if Lyric kind of played it off for a while, just for laughs, and then I'm not sure how Deacon would react once he figured it out?
After that, though! I'm really thinking that they could actually get to be pretty good friends. They're similar in some respects and totally different in others. Like, Lyric is a bit of a daredevil himself, and he does stupid and reckless things occasionally. Not as often now, that he's beta, but he used to be pretty notorious for it. He also doesn't take people's shit, so that could be interesting... but for some reason I think that Deac's intense passion would contrast nicely with Lyric's apathy, and it might open him up a little more to attempt and befriend Deac?

FITCH & ACE , fun horsey times and sparring kinda sounds pretty awesome. I guess Fitch could be like an excellent ear to bend, as well should Ace have any troubles. He'd tell the kid to 'man-up and quit whining' or something to that effect. LOL Just... do us all a favor and don't get him drunk, you don't want 6ft odd of handsy man on your hands. (;
BENNETT & ASHER , Ben is only really just getting the hang of his himself, but... I think it might be a little more advanced when compared to Asher's at present? It'd be really interesting seeing how he'd react to someone quite literally in his head...them thoughts are private and stuff, y'know? LOL Ben is generally an awkward individual, slow to really trust and whatnot... but I think given some time he'd let Asher in a bit. The thing is, as well... I think Ben would most likely develop a fondness for him and not really understand what the fondness was? He's not really ever been great at fostering any sort of relationship (despite somehow becoming the pack 'nanny'). It'd be confusing, and he'd be... conflicted over the whole thing I expect. Might be something interesting to consider.
ELIJAH & ACE , Eli is perfectly capable of rubbing people the wrong way on his own, so being rubbed up the wrong way will probably be refreshing for him in all honesty. I think it'd be an interesting interaction to be honest... Eli tends to be a bit of a wallflower and really does need to come out of his shell. He's not like Deac who can really hold his own, he's actually oddly introverted and dismal at times. I'd really like to see how this one pans out ^^ Eli is loyal as well, so it'd be a bit of a lock-horns and then suddenly realize that... actually, he ain't so bad-- sorta thing.
DEACON & ACE , LMAO! They could have a scuffle over some sort of rare herb or other and end up like... beating each other to a pulp and then having to use it |: That'd be hi-- -cough- Sorry... got carried away there >.>
EMERY & ACE , Emery is nice, she's very nice... but she's also very capable of looking after herself. She doesn't take anything from anyone and is actually kinda feisty beneath the cute, warm, honey and butter wouldn't melt sort of outward appearance. Plus... y'know, young attractive male- she'd not be able to contain her flirting... its in a bird's nature to put on a display, after all (;
DEACON & LYRIC , ...intriguing. Yes... I like this. Deacon is a bit of a cheeky critter, not only that- he also has a blatant disregard for 'rank' at times which can be rather irking. Realizing who Lyric actually is would probably knock his confidence inwardly and freak him out but... he'd just puff out his chest and be the tempestuous creature that he so often is in response. He's stubborn and prideful in that way. Though, he'd be secretly writhing in embarrassment beneath his skin. It'd be great to have someone equally as abrasive as he can be at times? A taste of his own medicine might ground him a little and I think that is something that he's missing. He's not a bad kid, actually really sweet... there are just some things that seem to get a wee bit out of his control at times personality wise... arrogance, stubbornness... they're usually the culprits. Flirtatiousness is another one... but I digress-- >.> IN SUMMARY: I LIKE VAIR MUCH!
LOL. I like this. A lot. I'm thinking that Lyric getting a taste of his own medicine would also be good for him--as in, he might stop being so impossible at times, so that's good. Also,, if at some time Deac ever started showing his sweeter side to Ly, I'm thinking that this would be something Lyric was missing too. He's never really had a "friend" or anything, so if he got a good one, he'd be... I'm not even sure. We'll just have to see how it plays out! As for flirtatiousness... Lyric normally doesn't know how to deal with it, so it sometimes makes him feel embarrassed or awkward or like a prude, which he really isn't. So I bet Deac could get a few laughs out of a blushing Russian, but every now and then Ly would flirt back, maybe? BUT I LIKE IT TOO. I can start it whenever?
ACE & FITCH , haha ace will be all like "i'm not whining..." and then go and whine some more. silly child. but yeah. he doesn't tend to open up too much, but if he has any kind of troubles he'd probably scratch the surface with fitch. who knows. he may open up a bit later.
ASHER & BENNETT , yeah asher is usually really quiet. he basically doesn't talk at all. so i reckon he'd feel really awkward about bennett being in his head and then him being in ben's head and then he'd really not know what to do. he'd probably apologise for his lack of control over his power... cuuute. asher needs some nice friends. he doesn't have many. i reckon he'd probably become quite fond of the dingo too. so yes. that will be quite interesting.
ACE & ELIJAH , yeah that sounds pretty good. ace can be quite a talker... so he really doesn't realise when to shut up at times. and with eli being quiet it'd be interesting to see how that pans out. but they're both super loyal, albeit to different rings, so i reckon they'd respect that in each other.
ACE & DEACON , homg yes. that is all. ace has healing as well and he'd probably be like "i'm not using it on you nice try. heal yourself." but... he does have a conscience somewhere. and he'd end up using some of the herbs to help deacon. and then be all like "great. no what's fulsi meant to do without this stuff. i gotta go find more."
ACE & EMERY , Ooooh that sounds pretty good. Ace would probably flirt back... Just because she's pretty and she's flirting with him. But Ace would respect a girl who can take care of herself. So I reckon they'd get along in an interesting, flirty type of way.
now, threads? who would you like to thread first? i'm really not fussy about it.
ace - asher - valeria - aiden - duke - soren - ebony - klaus - queenie - phoenix
