Autumn, Year 1

Summer had a tight grip, and as it slowly fades into Autumn, the drought continues. While the temperatures cool slightly, and the fires diminish, the scent of smoke lingers in the breeze. There are fall showers, but they are few and far between, and it is as if the earth longs for some hint of a respite. Even cooler climates feel the change, and the snow that usually begins falling hesitates. When will this end? Only time can tell what will happen, but hopefully the weather will let up soon.

I could not have made it this far
had there not been angels along the way.

Landing on the golden grass, the woman gazed at the city with azure orbs. She had heard that a new empress had finally taken hold of the lands. While the places still seemed vacant on many levels, it was coming alive. She almost wondered what it had been like before. Before all the lands had lost their rulers and had been thrown into chaos. It must have been like a dark age. Where everything was in chaos, quiet, while the world restructured itself, came back to life. During that time, when things must have been darkest, she had been a wanderer, and even before she had been in Caeleste, trying to change things, make things happen. When that had failed, she left. She hated to do it, but it felt like her time there had come and gone, and now here she was, hopefully home, hopefully for a while in this strange world.

Somehow it felt new, yet it felt old. It was a feeling she couldn't describe. It was as if history had written itself, but also that it had faced an awakening. She had found a library, found history of the land and she was intrigued. It was steeped in mystery, lore. So many sides to one story as things normally went, but she wanted to know the truth. Perhaps with the looseness of magic here she would regain her gifts, know the truth, or else find someone who did.

Shaking her head from the thoughts, she turned towards her hatchling who was sleeping tucked between her wings. She wasn't exactly sleeping, but rather in a relaxed state, trying to process recent events. Aeo was worried about her, she hadn't taken things well, and had many fears and nightmares she hadn't had before, but they would take it one step at a time. She was safe now with her bond, and at least with that, the woman felt a sense of relief. She could feel the quiet trauma in the young one, but at least now she was trying to relax and find some peace in the world again.

Finally, as she made her way through the city, the hustle and bustle of life giving her a sense of excitement, a smile crept to her dark lips. This place could very much be home, at least for now, but she needed to take it one step at a time. Before she settled, she wanted to talk to the new empress, see how she saw things. Aeo didn't want to be part of the chaos in the world, and wanted a place of peace and harmony, or one where it could grow.

Approaching the castle's gates, she spoke to a guard, asking for the new empress. She hoped she would be around today. She knew leadership positions as such could be busy, but a moment with her would be very enlightening.

Nelayryn
I Will Never Let You Fall
Her first goal had been met: after a long and chaotic period without a ruler, sometimes, it seemed, bordering on anarchy, order was restored to Vata.  Her people had accepted her with open arms, and a new era of leadership had begun across Aspasia.  In the golden light of afternoon, Faern Cascades seemed almost to glow with the joy and relief of it.

Nelayryn stood above the great waterfall, watching over her new empire.  It stretched before her in the summer light like a golden promise, whispering of a grand destiny to come.  Soon she would set down her laws and establish her guards, her healers, her lords and ladies.  Vata would prosper, and her people would be safe and free.
She could not help but smile.

At the back of her mind, something stirred: a presence.  Someone new had entered her domain – the scent hung new and unfamiliar in the warm air.  Nelayryn closed her 6 smaller eyes and turned to face her guest just as the guardsman escorted them in.  Blindness surrounded her in darkness, reducing her to the limited field of view afforded to most mortals.  She felt as though a blanket had been thrown over her head, but better this than to terrify one of her own subjects.  She knew all too well the look of fear that could fill the eyes of an innocent stranger, and with this in mind, she kept her smaller wings tucked neatly out of sight, beneath the larger main pair.  It would not do for the new queen to look so very alien.

"Your pardon, Empress Nelayryn - a guest has arrived to see you.  Does it please you to see her?" the guard declared.  
Nelayryn nodded.  "Of course.  Please, let her in."
The guard bowed and stepped back out, returning moments later only to escort the stranger in and be on his way again.  Her guards were never far, and yet they managed to stay out of the way - she appreciated the facsimile of privacy very much.

The creature brought before her was a vision of violet and white – lavender on snow.  Like Nelayryn herself, the other was winged, and not only with a single pair.
The equine empress smiled warmly.

”Welcome, wing sister.  Your pardon, I don't believe we've met.  My name is Nelayryn - what might I call you?”

Nodding her head slightly in thanks as the guard allowed her to pass through the gates, Aeoloni approached the woman before her. Of a similar height, and iridescent pearl hues, the mare noticed that she was of a different build. While Aeo was light, slender, and muscled, the empress though elegant, was stockier, slightly more muscular, and bore feathered legs. She too had multiple wings, though they were all on her back, and Aeo noticed what appeared to be multiple eyes, though all were closed.

Assessing this all silently in the mere breadth of her approach, Aeoloni dipped her head ceremoniously, the transparent purple garment around her shoulders waving with the motion. It was a gesture of peace, and of honor. She had thought of claiming the throne of Vata, yet deep in her heart she felt it was not right. While she did not necessarily see herself as a follower, it was not her time to lead. Perhaps in another time or perhaps another land, only the future could tell. For now she was content to learn what she could, find a place where she could and enact change as she saw doors open.

"Greetings." She replied formally. "I am Aeoloni, and this is Alahna" She motioned towards the dragon observing timidly between her shoulder blades. Alahna had been traumatized from her ordeal with Vithmiris, and rather than greeting the stranger with untoward enthusiasm, she watched cautiously from the safety of her bond's back. "And we want to thank you for granting us an audience. We are still new to the lands of Aspasia, and have only been here for a few short months, but have noticed the turmoil in the land. We wanted to congratulate you for receiving the throne of Vata, and we were wondering what you have planned for the kingdom, along with your beliefs."

Aeoloni once again dipped her head calmly, and waited for the woman's response. She knew she could be blunt at times, straight to the point, but she saw no reason to mince words or beat around the bush and waste time, when time need not be wasted. Perhaps, if Nelayryn had similar beliefs, then Aeo would choose to offer her support, if not, then she could simply walk away, and continue her life as a wanderer.
