Woodland Respite... or is it? -open to all-



You are in a section of woods, surrounded by trees.

To your right, past a screen of trees lays a small meadow, colorful flowers and waving grasses galore.

To your left, a trickling stream.

The perfect place to relax and ponder.

Or to explore and have adventures.

It is your choice


Open to everyone and anything - fantasy, the realistic, sci-fi, bring it on!


~.~.~.~.~


Annebelle took a deep breath of the fragrant air. A soft breeze brushed her dark brown hair, causing her wavy locks to tickle her neck. She reached back and itched it, then bounced into the stream and crashed into the waters, sending droplets flying everywhere.
It wasn't until she was standing up to her knees in water that she even remembered her sneakers.
"Oops," she muttered, glancing down at the now muddied water. Oh well, they'd dry. They had last time too.
She tugged her pantlegs up and pushed her sweater sleeves to her elbows. The water lapped at her legs and she grinned. She looked upstream and stretched her arms before crouching.
"Runners take your marks!" she directed. "Get ready! Get set! Go!" Water exploded in all directions as she charged forward.
"As expected, Annebelle May Ginnes takes the lead!"
Annebelle's foot slipped on a slime covered rock. With a shriek, she fell backwards into the water.




Courage
Is something
Rare and beautiful
We have fallen away
So take up your weapon
And fight for what you believe
For if you don't stand for something
You will fall like autumn leaves never rising

She felt something break her fall. Looking up from her position, Annebelle saw a pair of brilliant blue eyes mostly masked by a mop of reddish-brown hair.
"You really ought to be more careful," Justin told her, setting her gently back on her feet.
As much as he didn't like the water, he had saved someone from getting hurt. That's what he kept telling himself.
Shivering from the cold wetness, he introduced himself. "My name's Justin Pallot." Shaking his hair out of his face, he asked, "So, you like to run, I guess?"

Annebelle's cheeks grew hot as she was placed on her feet. "Um... yeah." She stared at him, at the water, at the grass on the shore, scuffing backwards and almost tripping again. A boy had just kept her from falling. Like a knight in a stupid romance book or something. How embarrassing. But she still needed to thank him, right?
"Thank you," she mumbled, eyes still on the ground, fingers playing with the edge of her sweater.
And he had given his name. Should she give hers too? She hesitated a moment, glancing up just long enough to get a look at him. It couldn't hurt, could it?
"I'm Annebelle. But you can call me Belle. People only call me Annebelle if I'm in trouble." She forced a small smile.

As Ianto slipped on the muddy ground for the umpteenth time, grabbing onto Jack's shoulder for balance, he began to question the intelligence of wearing a suit for a walk through the countryside. Not that Jack had informed him of where they were going.
"Tell me again why we had to come out here?" He asked, already envying the ease with which Jack could traverse this ground, in walking boots.
"Because we don't spend enough time outside, and you're getting podgy." Jack replied, prodding Ianto's stomach to prove his point. Ianto scowled.
"Don't do that, someone might see-" He cut off on noticing people up ahead. Spotting them, Jack waved and Ianto stopped where he was standing. "I'm not talking to strangers in the countryside, you remember what happened last time we did that?" Jack just shrugged, setting off towards the two people he could see. Left to choose between standing in a wood by himself, surrounded by who knows what, or going with Jack to meet these people who may or may not be dangerous, Ianto opted for the latter. At least with Jack around things seemed less likely to end in his death.

((appologizing in advance for confusion, it appears I have a fellow named Jack too c: )

He hadn't expected to go offroading and wind up in a place like this, that was for sure. Marduk knits his brows at the surrounding forest and then turns to raise an eyebrow at the red-headed man currently riding shotgun.

"You did it again."

"Nope. I don't know what you're talking about, Duck." He crosses his arms behind his head and kicks his feet up just out the window of their jeep. Smirking. That damn smug smirk. "Nice place for a picnic though, right?"

"We don't have enough supplies for detours."

"Yeah well, you're a survivalist!" The redhead closes his eyes and lifts one hand from behind his head, gesturing vaguely at the woods. "Go catch us some bugs, tiger."

The driver side door slams shut before the sentence is finished, and the braided man who had been driving was out and stretching. He didn't feel like dealing with his navigator just now...

Annebelle glanced up as two more men appeared. Since when were there so many guys running around here?! She smiled and waved at them. "Hi!" She almost grinned at the man trailing behind the first man. He looked about as nervous as she was. This put her a little more at ease. She leaned from foot to foot as she considered getting out of the stream. Now that her sneakers were completely soaked.

Damon walked into the clearing, followed closely by Ala, who had a far away, depressed expression on her face. The dark-haired vampire pulled up short when he spotted how many people were present, turning to face Ala as she nearly ran into him. He put a hand on her shoulder, forcing her to look him in the eye. "Do you wish to spend what is left of the day here or find someplace else, with fewer people?"

Her blue eyes stared at him emotionlessly, offering no insight as to her inner thoughts, or feelings. Or perhaps they did. She was numb on the inside. She did not answer his question.

Damon sighed, "I thought as much. We'll stay here for now."

He took her hand lightly and lead her to a spot away from the others, frowning at what odd clothes some of the others were wearing. His and Ala's own worn clothes, packs and weapons seemed to stick out here.

Seeing one of the people they'd been approacing wave in reply, Jack grinned back. Ianto sighed, still trailing after him but now speaking.
"Did it ever occour to you that they might want to eat us?" Ianto snapped, becoming more uncomfortable the closer they got to these people. Jack chuckled.
"Do either of them really look like they want to eat you, Ianto?" He asked, stopping just beside the small river. "You need to get over this irrational fear of the countryside."
"It's not irrational." Ianto muttered back, scowling and stopping so that Jack was stood between him and the others. "They had a meat cleaver."

(OOC- For anyone who doesn't watch Torchwood, from which Jack and Ianto come, last time they went to the countryside, Ianto was nearly killed and eaten by cannibals. Quite understandably, he's no longer so keen on being in the countryside.)

"I hear people." Marduk says after slamming his hands on the roof of the car, both to punctuate his words and to give him a purchase to poke his head into the vehicle.

"You got a problem with that...? Oh. Right. You're not a 'creature of society', my bad." That sneering voice was starting to grate on Marduk, but he remembered that could happen after days in the car together with few stops for rest and gas. It was just cabin fever. Be rational.

His navigator opened the door and practically vaulted out, stretching briefly and animatedly before clambering on top of their jeep. "Well, I can't really see much but there's movement. A few people. Looks like we weren't the only ones itching for a scenic picnic!"

Clair wandered through the trees, hands in the pocket of his jeans. The wind blew some of his light brown hair into his eyes, but he didn't seem to mind.

He wasn't really paying attention, because just then, he ran into Jack.

(OOC- I know the feeling. I'm rubbish at getting my characters talking to people, so this could be a good conversation starter. xD Also, please excuse Ianto. He won't actually shoot anyone, he's just jumpy.)

Ianto jumped voilently as someone crashed into Jack, hand reaching for his gun. It was in his hands and pointing at the offender before he'd really had time to think about it.
"Ianto, put the gun away." Jack told him, apparently unconcerned by the fact that his team member had the weapon out. "I'm pretty sure he's not a cannibal." He looked at the man who'd just walked into him, considering that statement. "Are you a cannibal?"
"Of course, he'll tell you if he is." Ianto muttered, lowering the gun but not putting it away completely.

"A cannibal?" asked Clair. "Dunno where you've been, but I'm vegetarian." He laughed nervously and took a couple of steps back. "Um... sorry. Wasn't looking where I was going."

(OOC- I <3 him too. ^^ So I decided to play around with them between series two and three so I can have more Ianto time. xD)

"Don't worry about it." Jack replied, "I'm Jack Harkness, nice to meet you. Please excuse trigger happy here, we had a nasty run in with cannibals over in the Brecon Beacons, the countryside makes him a little nervous."
"They had a meat cleaver, Jack." Ianto tried, once more, to protest the rationality of his dislike of the countryside before giving up. "Ianto Jones." He held out a hand to shake with Clair, apparently now convinced that the other man wasn't a threat. "You have a name?"

"Ah, makes sense." He shook Ianto's hand. "What a coincidence, I'm Clair Jones." He laughed a bit. "Nice to meet you."

Damon and Ala stayed there for awhile, but the crowd, and the noise was too much.

Ala soon just stood up and walked away, leaving Damon to follow helplessly.

"So, Clair," Jack said, never one to be left out of a conversation. "What brings you out to the countryside?"
Ianto shrugged as the man shook his hand. "It's a popular surname, I guess."

There's a smirk on his navigator's face that is absolutely horrifying, to those that know him. "Guess what, Duck?"

"It's... Marduk. Like 'duke'." It's a futile plea because the nickname stuck to him long ago.

"That's not a guess."

"Not playing this game."

"Really, now?"

The smirk only grows wider. He's showing off, Marduk KNOWS he is showing off when he front flips off of the jeep and catches himself, lurching forward into a dead run for the others.

"That's a good way to get shot, Jack." The driver grumbles under his breath... and yet he still follows, right into the mess.

Clair suddenly looked at his watch. "Great," he sighed, "I've got to go. My train'll be here soon. Nice talking to you!"
He smiled at Jack and Ianto and left.

"Why is it that I always have that effect on people?" Chayse asked as he strode into the clearing. He watched as the man walked slowly away. He walked up to the girl "I'm a bit lost," he said "I took a wrong turn somewhere around 1066 AD, could you tell me where I am, and what planet I'm on?"



I took the road lest traveled by... I really should have brought a map.
