Legate, that would be very interesting indeed...but that would cut out the plans for Mnemosyne's character. Besides, I think it'd be more interesting with Wynflaed stepping in.

Hm....I was going to post all the way to the point where the boys tell Thornden. But then I decided that since Lommy and Groin did not have the confrontation worked up to any heat yet, I should not. So, I'm going to post the post the way I have it now and just have things getting started. I can just about promise that as soon as Groin or Lommy or both get at least one post up, I will be able to get my 'rushing in and telling' post pretty quick.

Groin, I laughed aloud with Lithor while reading your post. It suddenly seemed funny to me, too...Good writing.

I can't do anything now, so Lommy....you're up next. *waiting anxiously to see how things transpire*

There's your violence. I'm sorry W&W are not being as idiots as they could be but I told you, they're not total fools and they can be dangerous...

Anyway, Foley, I think now the boys would have enough reason to run for aid.

PS. Groin you may decide if Lithor falls to the ground, I was thinking not ( = that wasn't Wilheard's intention), but if you want him to, go for it...

Excellent! Lommy and Folwren, both of you did fun posts. My heart was racing with unbridled excitement when I saw that y'all had posted. I shall get something up before tonight.

Looking forward to your post, Mnemosyne! I can't wait to bring Wynflaed into this.

I'm fine with it. The more the merrier, or in this case angrier.

I have my post up! I thought of having Lithor do something physical, but I realized that that was more of an Erbrand move. Therefore, I choice to do Lithor's talents and wound the two young men with some insults.

Ugh. Is Lithor planning to die?

But even better if Crabannan joins... I am looking forward to this... really curious. I guess even if nobody else intervenes, this is going to become a major topic among the people and it will influence everybody's opinions a bit more again. I am really looking forward to that.

And I should note here, I know most of the people are from the "old" Scarburg, but you must take into account that the "new" people know nothing about the original inhabitants at all, and even if they don't have any prejudices or bad attitude towards the "old" people, if all they hear is "they speak nastily to lord Athanar", "they gainsay to authorities" and "they fight with the Lord's sons", oh my, we are really just creating the gap between the "old" and "new" ones...

Lithor's committing a slow suicide...

I will think of this and post something at least here soon, but for now Gwath's itervention and handling of my characters looks good. But yes, if there's no intervention really soon, it will be a brawl...

Wynflaed's on her way.

Foley, I hope you don't mind that I asked Thornden along for backup. It would only be fair to honor the boys' request (she still doesn't know who punched her daughter), plus she doesn't have enough information to know whether it really is her sons or not. And that makes a good show of coruling/transition/whatever.

Once she does arrive and sees her sons, she'll handle them from there on her own. I'm not sure how Thornden would fit into this, though, especially if eventually Wynflaed takes her sons' reports of treason seriously.

This is interesting indeed!

But others should have something to do while this little drama unfolds outside... for I don't think all the people should rush out there. Feel free to come up with any interactions or just private thoughts...

One thing that comes to my mind is whether Degas would discuss with Athanar as he would probably have come down from his seat for the meal and thus sit on the same table?

That's fine. I'm inclined to not post yet and wait for others to post and just see how things carry on. I often feel like I rush things by posting too quick or something.

Though such obvious bullying by Athanar's sons would be punished, even in the old hall.

Great points, both of you - points which I had already considered. Something I love is that many of the new characters also have new writers, who also know very little about the old characters, which means that the writers may well have some of the same misconceptions as the characters. It's awesome.

Eh, I'm trying. Poor Lithor. The thing that gets me the most is that he is just trying to make friends, and everyone keeps taking him wrong and making him an enemy. That would be a sore trial for anyone.
Such bullying would be punished, even in the old hall, you are right. I think that it would have been interesting to see what Eodwine's reaction would have been. I, for one, think that Saeryn will be very, very angry. If nothing is done about them, it will be hard for her to hold Javan (who appears to have been guilty of a similar crime of bullying Aedre) to a higher standard, when Athanar's own sons are permitted to do something like this to Lithor. But I speak too swiftly - we don't yet know what is going to happen.

-- Foley

EDIT: Adding - I hope you post something, Groin, tonight (or soon) before Thornden and Wynflaed come out. But, then again, I guess it's really Lommy who needs to post for the two W's next. (I don't know if I'll ever be able to remember their names.) Is she still alive in WW? I think she needs to be voted off/lynched. *innocent whistling face*

Very good point Folwren. I say that we don't force people to write one way or the other, just go with the flow. I won't have a post tonight but I will work on one and have it up tomorrow morning.

Looks like we are having a party. What time is it for you three - Groin, Gwath, and Mnymosyne?

EDIT: I have an idea. Let's see if we can get a chat skwerl in this far corner of the Downs!

Ugh, unfortunately my attention really cannot be on this thread at the moment. Currently on page 3 out of 10 pages discussing Coriolanus from a pomo perspective...
