(19:20:49) Cinnema was becoming much less concerned with her children and more okay with whatever the heck it was the pack was doing with them. Corruption was inevitable, may as well accept it! Frankly Cin's behavior had changed too.. Oh this litter was really affecting them all huh. Whelp! Today she'd ventured to the river to reconnect with a favorite pastime. Swimming against the current and working out her muscles like she hadn't for waaayy too long a time. And since she hadn't it she had to take several breaks and keep working on readjusting to the workout. Fluffy white fur did not help the process. Yet, she still stuck around the bank for a good few hours, just because she enjoyed water that much. It was one thing she probably wouldn't ever get over. When content with her little romance with the river, thoroughly soaked Cinnema would wander back to the den, tail swinging contentedly behind her as she walked. In a pretty great mood now, calm green eyes surveyed for the rest of her crazy pack.
(19:35:22) Drakov: Feint growls were all that could be noted from the pale bastards presence. He was nestled oh so pleasantly into the rocky formation that was the Den. Just out of sight, but the stone wall reverberated his childish sounds out across the courtyard. He was oh to consumed in the act of mangling a newly caught hare. Not for food, btu for pleasure. Pale monster now tinted red would roll and shuffle in his propped hide out, until of course.. What held him up above the rest shifted benieth him, a few rocks crumbled down and following them? Was the mass of white fluff . Paws narily caught him like a cat falling from a tree, though.. Far less graceful. Rabbit still clenched between jaws, course.. You couldn't fucking tell what it was what with it being mangled to hell and back.[c] (19:42:49) Drakov: Alittle dazed from the fall, a groan would escape as senses leveled back out. Paws shuffling him to stand and offer a much neede shake of frame. Eyes blunk, firstly noting Cin's appearance. Drenched and leaving a dark trail behind her. Why hello there... Don't you look hot. As if he'd not just fallen like an idiot, tail would sway mildly behind. "'Ave fun?"[e]
(19:48:33) Yusef had earned his own meal yesterday! Yes indeedy, all by himself! He pranced out of the den, little belly finally all full. He toddled along quietly, aving hidden his bird skull somewhere in the dirt in the far back corner of the den, for he didn't want anybody to take it. Seems they all had a bad habit of taking things that werent theirs! So he'd hide it! In any case, he felt like it was time to do something new--to brave a new landscape...water. He trotted over to the edge of the water and poked a paw in--YIIIKKEES. Cold. It was harsh on his little wounds and injuries sustained through the past few days. But...to hell with it. That wouldn't stop him! He was going for it! WAR CRY! He delved into the shallow water, paddling for his life. PADDLEPADDLEPADDLEPADDLEPADDLEPADDLEPADDLE glub glub. Honestly, he wasn't even going anywhere fast, and the shore was only two feet away, but oh, he paddled like he was fighting the thrashing river current@
(19:58:55) Vadimir had gone to the trouble of finding some suitable sparring partners. Everyone but Drakov seemed to get butthurt whenever he initiated battle with them, so finding a stranger with which he could test his mettle was simply the next best thing. And the closest battle-ready creatures he could find were the bighorn sheep way up in the top-most reaches of the mountains, were the air was thin and delightfully crisp and grass grew on sparse patches of dirt throughout the rocky bluffs. Battling these creatures, who were built for such climes, on such hazardous turrain wasn't the brightest thing Vadimir could do. But he knew his limits well, and after a few slips and slides and scrapes, he got used to navigating the uneven, pointy battle arena with greater dexterity. [c] (20:03:54) Vadimir currently could be found with a ram's horns lodged in his mouth. His teeth were useles here save for keeping a ready grip, which was difficult thanks to the horns grooved surface, like ripples in a frozen sea. Back and forth they battled, Titans dueling directly beneath the heavens, as it seemed to any onlooker. Slowly the ram would maneuver Vad toward the edge of the ledge they were currently perched, his sure footing more steady than Vad's, who's pawpads, while offering good traction on flat or even rocky ground, were still clumsy upon the shale and lichen covered stone. From Vad's throat emenated a bugle of frustration. They'd been at this for over an hour, and still neither seemed to tire or budge. Yet the sheep still had the unspoken advantage, which it seemed to know since it put on an extra burst of strength to force the mutt ever closer to the bone-crushing fall. For his part Vad would jerk his head forward, then slacken, as if appearing tired. The ram was becoming [c] (20:10:55) Vadimir over-confident, a trait he'd seen fell more able fighters than he'd care to count. When the ram sensed Vad's feigned fatigue it bleated victoriously and made it's charge, this time heedless of pace. Vadimir smiled to himself, pivoting with back legs so that the ram's own force pushed his rear end to the side, leaving nothing in the way for the ram but empty space. Using the forward velocity against it, Vad swung uper body in conjunction with it's charge, sending it screaming over the ledge and into oblivion. Well, hey now. Hadn't been expecting to get a meal out of that. SWEET. Hopping from point to point Vad followed the ram's descent, finally alighting on ground-level some half hour later, where the sheep lay broken on the floor, it's ruined limbs spread-eagle in awkward, unnatural directions. Grabbing hold of the horns again he'd begin to tread home, when something small and cold hit his nose. [c] (20:15:43) Vadimir looking up he found that the sky had turned gray, and snow drifted in lazy spirals. Had it really gotten that cold, that quickly? He hadn't noticed. But then, the den was already higher than most of the others deeper in the valley, so it stood to reason. But either way, it was of little concern to him. He'd always preferred snow over hellish heat. On his way back to the den he'd find his son making a right fool of himself, and he'd snort with scorn, dropping the ram and padding forward. If he was able to catch the child before he could properly move, Vadimir would ram the child's face under the water with a paw. He'd hold him there a minute, before releasing. "If you vant to zwim, zen zwim properly," He grunted curtly, "Paddling like a fool vill get you novhere. Deeper vater, over zere." He'd indicate the spot with his nose. So far Yusef had managed to please Vad more often than his other siblings, but that meant little when there was still... say, eight more months of hard [c] (20:16:22) Vadimir training he'd be forced to endure before Vadimir was truly happy with his son. And that was ONLY if he'd rise to the occasion. Otherwise? Gonna be havin' some bacon with dem eggs. Yeeeeaaaaa boi. (f)
(20:57:29) Zodiak: Ahhhh what a pleasent night. He awoke feeling rejuvinated, as if the wounds he'd aquired not long ago had faded. It was amazing what a little play could do; that and being able to finally do something that drak was proud of. He'd jumped to the occation and taught one of the youngins about working for their food. Not as harsh a lesson as his fathers would dish out, but nonetheless effective. Jaws gaped in a rather noisy yawn, limbs stretching out in front of him before he rose to all fours. Back would arch in catlike fashion before a releiving shake was issued. Morning. Eyes casted over to drak and approaching cin, he'd swing his tail and shift attention toward the river. It seemed the pup from yesterday was braving the depths on his own. SIGH better go do his job. Zodi headed off at a trot, casting a glance toward the two present wolves as he passed. He reached the bank and tilted his head, the pup obviously wasn't doing it right. "What the hell are you doing?" [c] (20:57:39) Zodiak: Head tilted and paw would reach out to strike at the water in an attempt to pull him to shore. Like hell zodi was going in after him. Vad soon approached with a rather delicious entre. Zod would step back as he moved in to handle teaching the child. Zods eyes would shift to the ram and he dared extend his nose to take in the smell. Ears flicked back, he knew better than to try and eat it, having not caught it and not been offered. He sighed and stepped 'round back to the riverbank to observe the lesson and maybe learn something himself.[d]
(21:05:38) Cinnema was startled by the shifting and falling rocks, as well as Drakov who came tumbling down with them. A slight smirk crossed her scarred face, disappearing hopefully before he noticed it and being replaced with a goofy smile. Wow way not to laugh anyway. It was a little strange for her to be in a good mood like this. Her ears would shift forward a little as she caught his question, tail swaying behind her rear and legs moving her near him so she could reach his face and nip at his cheek fluffs, omnom. "I did," she quite nearly sang, likely daring to get a better bite to him depending on his reaction and hop away out of reach. Red ears swiveled toward a retreating fluff-butt running off toward the river from where she just came. Oh, wow, couldn't they just go when she was already there and save her the trouble of walking between? Then noticing Zodiak emerging from the den. There was a slight pause in Cin's posture, but none the less she didn't let him bother her for the time being. (c) (21:05:49) Cinnema. Ignore the brown pup, yep sure. Sending a glance at Drakov, she'd step/skip back in the direction she'd come from to see Vadimir present as well, and with a big juicy load dragged behind. Mm workouts made her hungry, as she licked her lips a little and tried to avoid staring at it too much.. Yet standing near versus how Zodi had wandered to watch Yusef swim. Still, she'd look to what was going on and just generally be in a happy mood. Likely none but Drak had seen her in such a mood, maybe they'd be weirded out and run for the hills. Ha! (e)
(21:19:19) Drakov: Bloody mangled creatures dangled, swinging to and fro as pale beast met the woman half way. Her attempts at harsh play were met with his jaws, though... Occupied as they were.. He simply slung the falling apart critter into her face instead. Atleast, for the time being. Until one hop of hers forward was met with a bounce of his own and a wrap of paws around her shoulders! Ample opportunity for the russian to part his teeth and clamp them firmly around her muzzle! Squishing the funk still within his mouth against her features. Though his mouth was full and hard to maintain, he played it off with a fit of growls and noms. GRRR. Attention only stirred from turning the once recently cleaned woman into a grousome mess, by none other than her mini duplicate charging for the waters. Grasp was released, head tilting to one side as brows furrowed at the sight. Little glance was given to Cin, a sort of.. Tha fuk? U c dis? look. Destroyed little hare was left to flop on the floor, now [c] (21:22:08) Drakov: that the duo were caught up in what was going on nearby. In a mild trot, Drak bursted into the scene with a very unnecccessary growl. Like a train roaring in, only to barrel his way into brother and... possibly even ram him over right onto child. HOHUM. Let's just drown his little ass benieth there playing bodies. Jk. He didn't stick around long enough. Nono, the momment contact was made, feet were already looking to push him up and dart him off down the waters! Down enough so that he could turn and look apon not just Vad, but everyone else with a toothy grin. Bitchhheesss. What'chu got?[e]
(21:29:48) Yusef was both held under the water for a moment, and then flopped unceremoniously ontop of. HEY. HEY, U SEE ME HERE?! he huffed as he paddled, but daddy demanded something of him--ofer there, he had pointed. He narrowed his eyes--CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! He struggled through the water, making his way into the deeper current where Vadimir so demanded he go. He huffed as he made his way into the currents, his little body easily getting pushed and shoved and thrown around in the water. FUCK YOU WATER, YOU DONT OWN ME! He continued to tread--he'd make his way there and back! It was, at least, working those little muscles of his.
(21:47:39) Vadimir turned to notice Zodi's presence, hearing him call out to his child with an apt question. Hmm. Last time he'd seen the male was after his punishment and their subsequent passionate joy-ride. He looked none the worse for wear, if a bit perky. Heh, guy rebounded fast. As he watched Yusef get all kinds of hankerin' for the deeper waters, Vad heard a growl and the thundering pawsteps of-- AND suddenly Vadimir was getting pushed into the water by big bro. Body flew foward, expression quite comical, best described as a, OH OKAY =I type of guise. So it was time to act like a collective group of dysfunctional children. Hell, he was game. He was always game. He was so game that the realization that he'd just squashed his own son was met with a booming laugh, which only increased in volume as the child, seemingly undeterred, paddled his way out with nary a by your leave. "I like zat von." He acknowledged with a small nod, rising while head turned in unison to see big bro starin' [c] (21:50:37) Vadimir about in challenge. Well now, wasn't this quaint as shit. Striding from the water like a lithe dancer, Vadimir approached his kill ceremoniously and bit into the hip and thigh regions, tearing and scissoring the sinew and muscle so that he could pull the entire limb free. With his improvised baseball bat, younger brother would smile wickedly while eyes beamed beneath furrowed brow. Paws then sent him flying toward brother, his weapon held at the ready as he aimed to swing it at his brothers head in a cleaving arc, so that even in it missed his skull, the chances of it alighting upon a limb were pretty good. (f)
(22:04:28) Zodiak side stepped and shifted gaze to drak as he sounded off his approach like some king. He perked up, tail wagging as he still seemed to be in a rather good mood. This was nice, zodi liked good times much more than getting his ass kicked on a daily basis. He had turned attentions to the pup as vad was pushed into the water. The splash that was unavoidable had zodi pacing quickly out of range, shaking spazticly and ending with a snort. He'd look back to see the two brothers still at play, one armed with-- oh, wow. the leg of the ram. Come on man don't play with your food. Zodi sighed and trotted over to the vicinity of the two, tail waving happily as he observed the spectacle, issuing a few barks to rally the mood.
(22:15:54) Nida stalked onto the scene for eyes to behold the group in full; they were all over the place, and keeping on them all like a caboose was troublesome! Sigh! Her eyes went to Vad first as he severed a portion of the ram's body and wielded it as his choice of weapon, used against the great white marshmellow. Cute. Then it jumped toward Zod in the background playing audience, to which she joins at his side contently. A look was casted to the rear of her or wherever, depending on the location of the river, to glance to the determined little tyke. The 'terror of the night' kid .. yeah, and stares at him. Momentarily distracted. Hurdurrr. < durp>
(22:20:30) Cinnema made a noise of slight surprise followed by growls as the torn apart carcass was slid all over her nice clean face, leaving fluids staining her fur oh hell. It was worse when, while they were playing for once, her face was grasped between his jaws along with the bloody mess and it was practically shoved all over her freaking face. Eeww. Still, nomming was met by more little growls and gentle moving of head side to side if she could help it, though not enough to likely cause damage as she was kind of careful with that considering the scars on her face from a time before. She'd step back when released and still charge after them, skip skip. Green eyes looked upon Drakov in the water, looking all COME AT ME. Well okay if you insist u//u. Completely ignoring others movements, Cin would start to move toward him with puffed out chest, however! In came Vad with his freaking meat-bat, swinging as his brother and she was on her way there too. OHSHITNOPE. Little slips in the dirt as (c) (22:20:55) Cinnema slowed herself to avoid him, letting him take the swing at his brother! But oh how she still wanted to get in on this even if she couldn't go at Drak like planned. Instead@a new opportunity arose with those two being distracted! Playful evil smile crossed her face, she redirected herself right toward Vadimir's exposed back and would instead attempt to launch herself right on him and latch onto his scruff like a trap, loud growls uttering forth as she tried to get a better hold.. And, while her intention at first had just been to grab him and maybe put him off balance, distract him from Drakov, etc. Her paws would quickly find grip around his sides and oh he was going to throw her into hell for this. Usually compliant woman started humping away at his backside giving him a taste of his own medicine. HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT BITCH GRRGRRR. (e. *.*)
(22:49:11) Drakov: Everyone present was taken notice of, as gaze shifted from face to face in open challenge. Though.. Per usual attention ended back on brother. A little smirk pecking at his features, in response to his claim on the boy. Drak couldn't lie. He didn't completely hate some of these little shits. They were fun. "Da. I agree." He was almost excited for them to grow the fuck up! Be big enough that he could tussle with them to the extent he did Vad, without fear of squishing them flat! Alot more fun of a tug toy I must say. Eyes blunk and pleasant wag came to pause and stare when it seemed younger brother had plans of his own. Ohhellno. We playin' that game? Splayed paws sprang him off to the shoreline, a long stick being what he saught. There were enough of them about what with his little.. Hobby.. of fighting the waves with stick in tow.[c] (23:00:26) Drakov: An ample battle sword to fight against his limb of a weapon! Stick was nabbed up, body twisting and head spinning in preparation for what was to come, but... when he turned to face the attack he instead saw Cin aiming to hump his brother. I-wh-... What do!? He didn't know whether to be pissed or... fucking laugh!? I mean it was his brother? Typical standards were entirely different when it came to him. But... Come on now. No, he couldn't help it. He had to smirk. Toothy grin wide behind mouth full of stick. Attention only shifted from the sight to behold when child was noted oncee again not far off from the spectical. Single brow rose, and pale beast shifted to the childs location. Stick would be swung down to flop right atop the kids good time to bonk him on the head. Why? Just because. Duh.[e]
(23:07:14) Yusef splashed about, treading water like a champ. And suddenly...BONK. What? WHAT!? He gnashed those little teeth to bite at the stick, grabbing hold of it so that when Drak pulled the stick out of the water, it had a Yusef clinging to it! He wriggled and growled and snarled in his tiny puppy voice. HOW DARE THIS STICK BONK ME?! No, not at all the giant creature attached to it--clearly, this stick was controlling his mind and making him bonk! I'LL GET YOU STICK! I WILL MAKE OU SUFFER FOR YOUR INSOLENCE! At least until the end of the stick broke, and he went tumbling back into the water with a little SPLOOSH. He vanished beneath the surface momentarily, before bobbing back up to draw in a gasp of air and scrabbling furiously at the piece of stick he had detached. FUCK YOOOOOUUU STICK! and soon the twig went floating freely down the river, and he barked after it. YEAH THATS RIGHT. FUCKIN' RUN. Bitch.
(23:32:47) Vadimir watched big bro change course, which didn't deter Vadimir in the slightest. Fine, let him run! All it meant was a slight shift in direction. Though when sibling bent to examine the ground, Vadi smiled to himself. Oh bro, smart move, but now wasn't the time to be gathering sticks! Forward momentum didn't cease, and it carried him straight onto land and right for his bro's back side. In the time it took his brother to find a decent stick and turn, Vad was already there. He'd catch him mid turn, that same twisting unison of head and neck as he'd intend to playfully wallop sibling with his improvised meat bat. Except, now.... now he was liable to strike brother right in the nuts! If only bro hadn't moved. Oh weeelllll. Thick chuckling would escape maw should his hit land, though it'd soon turn to a gurgle of surprise as he felt a weighted pressure land upon his back. WAT DAFU-- Twisting he'd find none other than Cinn. Oh hell no. Vad this is called karma, just roll with it. [c] (23:35:50) Vadimir of course, prideful being that he was, Vadimir refused to simply allow himself to be mounted. He'd buck and kick, hoping to temporarily push himself aloft and disengage himself from the woman who seemed so eager to make an example of him. NO HE'D NEVER TAKEN IT BEFORE, HAVE MERCY! But then she began to hump him, and then he really lost it. Twisting, trying to roll onto his belly, tiny stub tail wiggling furiously and body convulsing as if he bore the entire world on his back. Or, y'know. Just the mother of his children. No biggy. (f)
(23:55:31) Zodiak bounced and yapped at the two momentarily before lover was noticed at his side. He'd quickly turn attentions to her and, in his excitement, involve her in his celebration. Playful nips and slobbery noms were dealt at her cheek and chin. He chuffed and bowed with rump wiggling before jumping at her again to drape himself over her shoulders, more nips aimed at the ear on her opposite side. Tail swished and if she hadn't knocked him off by now he'd remove himself with a huff, nose poking at her before affectionate licks replaced rambunctious playing. Tongue lolled out as he panted, really enjoying the fact that he could finally play. Gaze turned to the others and head cocked to one side as cin was noticed... Humping vad??? LOL Zodi grinned at the spectacle, a small flutter of -serves your right!- causing tail to sway. Bout time someone got him back...strange it was his wifey though... He'd look over to nida and bonk his head into her side, half considering another [c] (23:55:37) Zodiak: dose of slobber attack[d]
(00:03:44) Nida watched from a measured distance, enthused. The play-fight going down definitely had her eyes on the three perfectly earnest to flounder about in the murky water. A breathy cough hits the back of her throat when her eyes witnessed Cinn mounting Vad from the rear while he's distracted with his brother. A half smile tenses the corner to the unscarred side of muzzle. She was about to laugh when her attention had been diverted by a nom! Le gasp. What is this? Her tail took to a bemusing spasm, and lowered her torso to the ground, rear in the air. As he came down on her shoulder and got a hold to her opposite ear, she snarled, with a playful undertone, then grab a mouthful of fur to his neck. Omnomnomnom. Slobber returned. Nida stopped as he had to take in the sight of Vad frantic bucks and kicks, but did not laugh- if he looked she might be subjected to his beatings. He cray. The woman nudges the side of her face in his kindly. She eyed Drak and the nosy pup, curious.
