Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Her sharp tone might have caught someone else off-guard, but with him, he smiled. As one whose entire existence was devoted to protecting others, it offered a moment of sweetness to him to have someone else be protective of him...at least, someone who wasn't his mother or sister. He was used to it f...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Haeden was very good at listening. As a child, he had been a rambunctious creature, but the trauma of his early adolescence leaning into the training he underwent to become a Gaidin had made him very skilled at being part of the background and simply observing. He had every intention to do as much o...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Haeden couldn't help but be fascinated by everything around him, although he certainly didn't allow himself to look the part. All the fascination and curiosity was kept behind his usual stoic veneer, worn at all times except for interactions with his wife and family. His green eyes flickered quickly...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

Not that he had expected any trouble on the other side of the gateway, but he was always prepared for there to be nonetheless. Fortunately, his expectations were upheld (or not, depending on how you looked at it) and there was no trouble. He looked back to the slash of silver in the fabric of realit...

Re: Sail Away With Me (attn: Bella)

It did take his wife's unbridled enthusiasm to make Haeden Ives a happy man, but it sure went a long way to bolster the emotions he was already feeling. There was a part of him that still almost didn't believe they'd had a wedding just a few days ago and were now husband and wife. For the longest ti...

Re: The Two-Way Street (Attn: Alianora)

Mia let the silence linger long enough to finish her tea before it went cold. Some tasted alright once they had cooled off, but this was not one of those, so she made sure to finish it. "You don't not have to get to know all of us too well before the wedding takes place, though," she said ...

Re: Arrival of the Best Candidates Ever (OPEN)

Another less-than-shocking question, but Natalie was good with that. She wasn't really one who liked surprises. "Well, first off, it's not forced on anyone," she began. "Every channeler and warder make that agreement of their own free will." And for those times when that wasn't t...

Re: A tomcat's return (At Andra Sedai from a certain failed scholar's apprentice)

Andraste stood beside him, her hands held loosely behind her back. She had that small up-turn at the corner of her lips that was the secretive, serene sort of smile that one learned as they became an Aes Sedai, though it had more warmth than average because of who she stood beside. "All will be...

Re: Under the Stars (Bella)

When she took his hand, he smiled and gave it a gentle squeeze. He didn't say anything more, since he didn't see a need for more words at that moment. They were both welcoming of companionable silences with neither feeling the need to fill the air with idle chatter when they were together. Once they...

Re: The Two-Way Street (Attn: Alianora)

"Seawind," Mia said musingly, "that's a lovely name." She took a long sip of her tea. "I imagine you may never feel as comfortable on a horse as those of us born to it are, and that's understandable. Neither Haeden nor I would ever be as comfortable on a ship as you. We all ...
