Legends ofAmarna

Warning! The anathema is here.

The doctrine that poisoned the souls of many, that wrought blood against blood, life against life. Aspasia has not been the same, nor will it ever be. As history fades into legend, and legend into myth, so too are the whispers of peace that had once brought each of the races together in harmony. As such a time faded into history, so does the chaos grow - the resentment that breeds loathing - that brings about war.

With the world pitted against each other, each race, equines, canines, and felines taking sides, the question is, which side will you choose?

Aeoloni


The sun was setting, the waves lapping along the beach. It was spring. Life had turned full circle. Already she had been here a year. It seemed so much, yet so little had happened. Life was different, life was the same. Ever turning, yet not changing. It was a strange sensation, a sensation of nostalgia and hope, yet there were also thin tendrils of longing and despair. She had found Alahna, yet here she was, still longing for her mate. No, her life did not revolve around him, but for some reason the time here, in the mortal world increased her longing for him. She wanted him by her side. Experiencing the world, experiencing what it meant to be mortal. She knew at home, where they were both from he was safe. He was immortal as she, but still it was as if a void had opened in her heart. She was curious what romance was like as flesh and blood as a mortal. Perhaps their form was purer, but still she wondered.

As the moments passed, and as the salty spray from the waves settled upon her dished crown, she also remembered her friend, Thumbelina. Gone again. She always vanished. She cared for her, but sometimes she worried. She was too innocent, too pure for her own good. Aeo worried it put her in danger. As she herself was not from here, neither was her friend. But there was nothing that could be done. Perhaps she would show her face again, perhaps their friendship was meant to be a short one. Only time would tell.

Snorting, she moved forward, into the waves. Feeling their gentle lapping against her lower legs. She did not stand in deep water, she just let it lap against her feltlocks. Letting the sensation soothe her. Sometimes she wished things could be different, yet she knew she was here for a purpose whatever that purpose be.

And Bottom Quote

Soft sand shifts beneath the hooves of the tall stallion. Golden hued body moves swiftly as colors burst and fade along the horizon. A gentle wind ruffles his mane and tail. Gulls circle and cry as they search for dinner. The waves push and pull against themselves as he travels. The man hears and feels all this but his mind is elsewhere. The sun is setting but his time here is just beginning. Having traveled such a long way to find his love, his heart, his Aeo, Jos finds the time fast approaching when they will reunite. 

Heart flutters in his chest as Jostaki makes his way along the foreign beach. Aeoloni had come to this strange land some time past. Oh, how he has missed her. While time turns differently where he lives and to him she had been gone but a short time, it has felt like an eternity since he has last seen her. There had been things to distract him, the war always raged on, but still, the longing to see her face again, to hold her close, it was almost too much to bear. 

That is all in the past now. Here he is, about to meet his beloved for the first time in, what seems like, a absurdly long time. Thoughts rush through his head and jumble together. What should he say? What should he do? Legs slow as he questions begin to plague his mind. 

With a flick of his horned head the man tries to dispel the nagging feelings. All will be alright. He knows it in his soul, but his head is another matter. Halting his forward momentum, the blue and gold stallion allows himself to let the thoughts wash over him. For every anxious, fear filled thought that enters his awareness, he replaces it with a picture of Aeoloni’s face. Anxiety is replaced with peace.

A smile alights itself on his lips and the happy equine continues his journey. As the light fades and the air cools, Jos spots a figure in the distance. Pace quickens along with the rhythm of his heart. It is her, he knows it in heart. The purple and white hues only serve to confirm this. 

Letting out a nicker, the stallion breaks into a gallop. As the last light of day slips behind the horizon and the stars begin to dance across the sky, Jostaki pulls to stop a few feet from the woman of his dreams. 

Eyes look over her, retracing every line, every curve he has missed. Without another moment of hesitation, he moves in, head reaching out, aiming to touch the soft skin of her neck in a gentle embrace. 

Words fail him as the emotions that he has held back break the dam and threaten to overwhelm him. The words that tumble from his mouth are laced with happiness and joy. Just above a whisper he says, “My love, my light. I have finally found you.” Eyes close as tears spring forth. They are together at last. 

He is complete, once again.

Aeoloni




She did not know how long she stood there, her breaths calm and slow. She gazed out over the expanse as the sun slowly set into the indigo waves stained crimson and orange. Alahna sat quietly on her back. Also in contemplation. If not for the movement of Aeoloni's mane and tail in the faint breeze, the pair may as well have been statues. Captured in a moment of time, ancient, bearing the weight of time, yet still elegant and strong.

As she contemplated her purpose. Wondering again and again, why she was here, and what was to become of her life, a nicker made it's way over the gentle lapping of the waves. It took a moment for the sound to register, a faint flickering of her ear. But then recognition slowly dawned in her mind. First she thought it had to be a dream, but the faint breeze, the scents of the ocean reminded her that no, this was reality, and that she was awake.

Turning quickly, the splashes from the water dappling her ivory hide a darker gray, she watched him. Watched as the stallion made his way towards her. His lithe yet muscular frame, carrying him swiftly and smoothly towards her. She stood there in shock. Seeing, but not quite believing. Afraid to blink as if it would cause the moment to disappear, cause her eyes to open to a woken world where this moment was only the flickering of a sleeping imagination.

Finally, he stopped but feet from her. Speaking in deep yet melodic tones. Finally it was as if her trance was broken. Blinking her azure orbs, she trembled. Not a word, not a sound had been uttered in the passing moments, but everything else had been forgotten. The world around her faded to nothing. The world was nothing but the horse in front of her. Only he could do this to her. It was as if her rapidly beating heart had stopped dead, yet she could still feel it pounding in her chest. Her breath, quickened, and a single tear came to her eyes. All these months of wandering, of waiting, of trying to find her purpose here in the mortal realm dwindled to nothing, yet still she was full of disbelief.

"Jostaki?" She said the single word, his name with all the weight within her. The passion, the questioning, the longing, the sadness, the pain, the joy. All of it there. In a single word. A single question. "Jostaki? Is that really you?" Stepping forward, she moved towards him. Everything in her shouting to touch him. To know it was real. To enter the touch of his embrace. No, she did not need him. Not in a physical sense. But she loved him. With everything in her, and the longing was just too real. He loved her too, and as she reached for him, she lent him some of her own strength, just as she sought his, and she reached for an embrace.
