Danni's Funeral Pyre

April 18, 2003

* Note: This archive started long before the actually burning of the pyre and I'm sorry to say, I stopped archiving shortly before the events of Gage's death.

Steeleyes(MotC): Ivy*nods*..ive mentioned it to Lex..((via e-mail heh)) can do it.. i have a feeling..Danni woulda wanted that*grins*..

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods to Ari, looks up to Steel with a slight nod* Alrighty....I've done a Gathering for the Departed before, but this will be...different.

Ivy Thomas: Steel> I do think the totem rat would honor any who honor her albeit they are in a different is also up to all of you to decide as well * she finishes what she is doing and falls silent*

Meredith Turner: *Looks to the group around Danni's pyre, as she aproaches. Doesn't say anything, trying move around them*

Steeleyes(MotC): *nods* can do it

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): ((booted))

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *turns to blatantly watch Mere, since she seems intent on not being watched*

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> I have complete faith in your abilities...

Steeleyes(MotC): *looks at Mer..says nothing*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods, shrugs lightly* I'd think someone in her pack should do it.....I'd've talked to Cuba to see what he thought but I couldn't reach him.

Meredith Turner: *Not acting like she doesn't want to be watched. Just quiet. Sighs softly looking at Danni. Reaches up and un clasps the Star necklace, she always wears from her neck. Gently placing it on the pyre. Looking down*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *faint smile* Thanks, you guys.....*looks to Mitch* An' I still wanna talk to you, but I think we should do the Gathering first. *looks to Steel a bit* I brought a buttload of moonshine in earlier, figured it'd be good for getting folks to sit 'round a while and tell Danni stories, eh?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *sighs a little* This is so wrong...this whole thing should never have happened...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She reaches into her pocket and pulls out Val's Gift for the pyre, making a mental note to thank her later*

Steeleyes(MotC): *nods and closes his eyes ...* ..yea.. umm.. i gotta run for a that im not crinos i have to check something at the garage.. now that i own it..*smirks*..thanks boss...((aka..players gotta run to go get GF..will be back AS SOON AS I CAN))

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *looks to Ari, nodding in full agreement* Yer damn right it shouldn't have....knew there was going to be a fight, but didn't think -that- was gonna happen.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *nods a little to Steel, then looks back to Riley* It should never have come to a fight. The challenge was bullshit.

Steeleyes(MotC): ((if im not here when it all starts...steel justr stands quietly))

Meredith Turner: *Doesn't say a word. Looks up and slowy makes her way, away from the pyre*

Ivy Thomas: * she silently finishes what she was doing and gathers her things and heads for the maze*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *frowns softly, tugging at her cap* Yeah, I didn't like it either and said so, but beyond that........Why the hell was it brought up after such a long time, anyway? Just doesn't seem right...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *she knows why...but glances at Mere and doesn't say anything*

Steeleyes(MotC): *as he heads out*..becuase its what the Rats wanted..

Ivy Thomas: ( gone)

Steeleyes(MotC): ((bbiab))

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): ((got booted again...)) *Nods to Riley* What is you you want to talk to me about?

Meredith Turner: *Goes back to the baby bag, picking it up and looking towards the gate. Sighs and changes her path to the couch, sitting down*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Walks to the pyre without her usual bouncing gait, placing Val's gift there, and reaching into her jacket pocket, taking out a nice shiny flask, with Celtic designs. Riley looks at it a moment as though trying to decide to give it up, since it's obviously important to her. But she does, with a soft sigh* Well, Jericho, I passed it on...sorta. *turns to Mitch, rubbing her forehead* I think that should be talked about in private...or after the Gathering, take yer pick.

Meredith Turner: *Sits for about 2 minutes, then stands and heads out. Quietly*

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> Whichever you prefer...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *fidgets slightly* Maybe I should go check Gage's place again...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Mitch> *glances to the maze entrance* Well, give a little bit for Steel to return, cuz I think this should be a pack thing...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *glances to Ari* Huh? What's with Gage?

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Ari>> If he is around.... I highly doubt he would not come here....

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> *nods, placeing a hand on her shoulder* Very well...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *glances at Riley* He's gone... He just disappeared... I can't find him, he hasn't been home... *her eyes well up again* I mean...ok, it's not like I didn't know he still loved her, but... I thought.... *shrugs finally* I don't know what I thought.

Brad Mullins: *heads in quietly*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods slowly, lets out a tired sigh* I'm glad ya showed up...*looks to Ari, brow furrows* Hm...sorry I didn't hear 'bout that, I'll help ya look once we're done. He can't have gone' I'm pretty good at tracking.

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> Did you honestly think I would not?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *in he walks slowly.. his cane tapping lightly.. no glasses covering his pale white eyes... his hair is dingy and dirty.. streaks of gray here and there.. dressed in a pair of sweats and a t-shirt*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Mitch> I wasn't sure, Danni said -before the moot- that she'd given ya time off, wasn't sure where you'd be.

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> I came as soon as I recieved word of her death...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: Gage...! *immense relief, and she goes to his side at once*

Brad Mullins: *hears the name... looks at who Ari's talking to......... so that's him huh? he pops his neck*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Gage? You goober....*surprised to see him, turning to have a better look*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *there's a smile comming to his face as he hear's ari's voice.. and he wraps his arms tightly around her.. not saying a word.. just a long tight hug*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *hugs him tightly back* I was so worried...

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nuzzles his head into her shoulder* there's no need to worry about me.. i'm fine.. *head swivels up slightly to face riley* who are you calling a goober shotstuff..

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): *stands next to Danni's pyre... kinda standing guard... prepared to stop those he isn't allowing to view her*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a little at Gage* You left...

Brad Mullins: *watches Ari and Gage*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *looks to Gage, faint smirk* Didn't know you joined 'nickname the shorty' club....glad ya came.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: i needed some time to clear my head.. i'm sorry..

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *smoothing Gage's hair a little, her voice quiet* You ok...?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nods a bit to riley* i could not come..

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *shakes his head to ari.. still smiling* not in the least *leaves it at that*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Gage, thumbs up* Good, 'cause I'll need ya for this...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *kisses Gage's cheek, keeping one arm around his waist, snuggling close for comfort. His or hers, it's hard to tell*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *tilts his head curiously in the direction of riley* for what?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *slips an arm about ari's waist.. leaning on her for a little support of his bum leg*

Brad Mullins: *goes to get a beer*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *tilts her head at Gage* For the storytelling, 'course...figure it'd do us all good to sit 'round, have a round or few and get talking about Danni some. That's how I did my last Gathering, long time ago...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *gives Brad a small smile*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nods a bit to riley* is jublian here?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Gage> *frowns at mention of Jublain* Haven't seen him, why?

Brad Mullins: *glances at Ari and nods... then sits on a car hood and sips his beer*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Slowly walks into the place holding a box in his hands heading towards the Pyre.*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *looks to Brad* You gonna come over and say hi?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: as danni's consort of sorts... i need to let him know what her final words to me were.. *his voice growing rather frosty*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Martin when he appears, still standing close to the pyre*

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): *glances at Gage when he mentions Jublain*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a little at Gage...not quite liking that turn to him*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *raising an eyebrow at the 'consort' comment, was never clear on that* Oh....*curious but in not state to act on it much, or try to pry*

Brad Mullins: *glances at Ari..... then downs the rest of his beer in one swig, tossing the bottle in the barrel..... then heads over to her and Gage*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he shifts slightly in his steps hearing a hefty set of footsteps approach them*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Um, Mitch....actually, there is something else I wannt talk to you, 'bout. Doesn't have anything to do with what I wanted when Steel gets back, but if ya can spare a moment...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (*kills typos*)

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> Indeed... privately? Or no?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Sets the bex in front of the pyre and takes out a spoon out of his coat setting it on top of the box.* Hey Danni. I dont care if this aint traditionnal. But fuck it. I am doing this for myself one last time.*TEars in his eyes.* I braught your favorite too. Spent all night trying to make it. I think i trashed about 10 of them before this one. I hope you will like it. *SMiled crying softly.* The poison is well mixed i swear. Can barely taste it. You should die from bliss after eating it.*Lowered his head.* Gods Danni. I am going to miss you.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *smiles at Brad, then looks to Gage* Gage...this is Brad, one of my packmates you haven't met yet.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Mitch> *glances around* Yeah, private would be good...just for a minute.

Brad Mullins: *holds his hand out to Gage* nice t' meecha...

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): Riley>> *nods* Very well... *heads out of earshot of everyone else, but staing within view of Danni's pyre*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *gives Brad a little glare for holding his hand out like that, he knows damn good and well that Gage can't see*

~b-fly~: Dove will quietly leave seeing as it appears to be a pack only kind of thing.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *extends his hand out to be grasped* an honor.. and well met.. I'm Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook, kinfolk to the GlassWalkers.. Aligned with the Central House.. Given deed name 'Survives Plauges'

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (it's not a pack only thing, anyone that has something to share about Danni can come...but I didn't think it was until 10 my time, so waiting to start up)

Brad Mullins: *his massive hand shakes Gage's* Brad Mullins, Cliath GW Ahroun... deed name "Smack Down"

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( Marty did something more for his own self. HE doesnt want her to take the cake after she is gone.))

~b-fly~: ( *s* I know, but Dove doesn't but she wanted to at least pay her respects. and Dove wouldn't have much to add since she didn't know Danni very well.)

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *returns the shake and nods* he's a big one huh ari?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (*nods* Understandable but Riley wouldn't forget that she came at least :))

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *a small chuckle, desperately needing something to laugh at tonight, no matter how small* Yeah, he's pretty huge.

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He looked at the Pyre taking out a small container of ice cream and dug inside.* I never thought you would have loved the Cheese cake at first. I made it by simple luck. Heck i still remember the first time you guys saw me. You were all ready to kick my ass to kingdom come.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: wait a minute.. is this the one that wasn't happy for you.. when he found out you and i were together? *head swivles back to brad's location*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *winces, wishing Gage hadn't remembered that part* He's gotten over that... *gives Brad a "don't you dare contradict me" look*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He slowly started to eat the Ice cream.* Your probably asking yourself why i am doing this now. Well. I want to do it before you have the full crowd. I was your little brother.*Smiled with tears in his eyes.* You watched over me and i made you laugh and regret it too.

Brad Mullins: *just looks at Ari for a sec... then looks at Gage..... then goes to get another beer*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *shakes her head a little...guess Brad not answering was the best she could hope for*

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): *heads back with Riley and helps her set the kegs up*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: well that.. was rather abrupt.. *coughs a bit.. and sighs* could you guide me to danni's pyre please ari..

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: Sure... *letting Gage take her elbow, like they've done this before, she leads him over to Danni-rhya's side...*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly after being led then whispers* you may want to step away.. *then using his cane for support.. the old shambler of a man moves down to his knees.. head bowed*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She helps Mitch set up the kegs at a strategic point in the gathering area. There's quite a few, enough for a decent sized Gathering*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a bit, then nods and steps back, hugging her arms around herself...turning her face away*

Brad Mullins: *ooh kegs.... good*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Makes his way in quietly, looking like he got a generous 3 hours of sleep yesterday. Which means he's probably kicking ass over a few folks*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Moony? *at seeing Twomoons enter* C'n I talk to ya for a moment?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *nods a little to Twomoons-rhya*

Mitch Williams (Banebiter Alpha): *nods to 2moons*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Eating the Ice cream slowly he recalled the past to him as he talked to the Pyre.* Specialy when Linda first met me. Gods the two of you were ready to split me in half. You thought i was a coward snob.

Brad Mullins: *waits for the kegs to get set up.... then pours a glass*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *looks like she got about the same amount of sleep, or less...definitely not her perky self*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: Riley>>Yeah, sure...if you don't mind talking over coffee.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *looks to Brad* It's for the Gathering, but feel free....just warnin' ya though, it's got a powerful kick.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *finally walks over to Brad, giving Gage his space* Is Erin coming?

Brad Mullins: Riley>> good...

JoDee Montgomery: (I'm assuming Steph called Jo to let her know about Danni.) JoDee comes into the gathering area with her daughter. she looks very tired..

Brad Mullins: Ari>> I dunno.... wanna beer?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: ((Yeah, Steph would have made all the appropriate phone calls, except to Danni's parents, which Riley got to do))

Steeleyes(MotC): *steps from the maze..heading over to Riley*..need help?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *shakes her head to Brad* No.... Not tonight.

Brad Mullins: Ari>> OK... *sips his*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Twomoons> *small smile* That's all good....*her voice not as loud as it normally is, bouncing gait absent* The pack's decided to let me go ahead...but it's gonna be pretty informal anyway. I'd appreciate whatever stories ya could give us, I know you knew the boss lady for a long time. *small smile* And will ya tell Val thanks for the gift she sent us?

Brenda Maier : * in she enters looking very much a person in mouring. she is dressed in a a black skirt which falls to her feet black flats on her feet a black v-neck sweater. Her long straigh dark brown hair swept backinto a frech braid with a few whisps of hang hanging at the sides*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *blink, blink* Tell...stories?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He looked at the Pyre talking eating ice cream as tears flowed from his eyes. his head was lowered.* I took out the pictures i had of when w went to the fetish club to find the vampires. You always looked serious. But you seemed to always had fun. Thats why i wanted to be your Sept fool.No matter how ridiculous thing i could think of. You would always laugh.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Steel* Yeah, some of em are heavy, but Mitch'n'I got most in place. *eyes widening at seeing Jo Dee*

JoDee Montgomery: (ok) She set Cinnamon down taking her hand and walking over to the pyre with her... she greets no one, just goes straight to the pyre.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he begins softly* hell of a birthday present danni.. you know i was turning twenty-eight the twenty-six of this month.. you just couldn't wait could you? *smiles with a soft snort* so many times.. *head moves up as if to gaze at the pyre* so many years.. before david left you... before bella left me... we both had been here a damn long time.. i know.. that i was meant to bury you... it's the fate of all kinfolk.. to bury their trueborn brethern.. but why now? why of all the times when we both were finally doing well for ourselves? *shakes his head more* through the years danni.. all the tragedies that have hit us and this cearn... i've ran out of tears.. i've become so de-sensitized to the bad shit.. that.. i've forgotten how to cry.. i think.. even when i think about how i'm going to go on to tommorrow without my best friend being there... i don't know how.. *sighs softly* to say what i have to say.. but after digging around.. i finally found what i feel was the pinnicale of 'us'...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Twomoons> *nods at that* Yeah, I was hoping everyone that knew Danni could say a little something, or however long they felt like, really...

Steeleyes(MotC): ok..*heads to the kegs..and hurumps them up*

Brenda Maier : * she stops and looks at everyone gathered and waits for Little Lilly to appear beside her*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *a child of four years old, angelic with her golden curls brushed to a shine, blue eyes more serious than a child that age should be*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *emerges from behind Brenda, holding her hand, looking around*

Enters-the-Password®: *heads in... wearing a jet black Armani suit*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: I...uh...I'm honored....but I suck at stories. I'll be...brief.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *his hand slides into the pocket of his sweats.. and he pulls out a dusty gold ring.. and places it before the pyre* rest in peace danni.. and go find david... *sniffles a bit but smiles* be happy again... *grunts and tries his best to push up off the ground with the help of his cane.. but just can't find the strength*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Seing Gage starting to talk he waves to the pyre and goes to the SED car eating his Ice cream.* I hope you like the cake.

Brenda Maier : * she looks down to Lilly and offers her a warm smile despite the rage and sadness that rages with in her and she holds out her hand to Lilly and whispers to her* It will be okay...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *wonders who Jo Dee is*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Makes his way over to Brenda and gives her a "hold me up" kind of hug* Hi love...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *sees Gage trying to get up and starts that way, not sure if she'll be hurting his pride if she offers to help* ....Gage...?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods, relieved* I'm no Galliard either...but as long as those know her speak some, I think it'll be just fine.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *just glances up at Brenda for a moment, then spots Steeleyes, letting go of Brenda's hand instantly* STEELIE!!!

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *heads over to Enters after a nod to Twomoons*

Brenda Maier : * she looks to Jason and doesn't smile at him....she will only uphold this act for Lilly's sake*

JoDee Montgomery: Cinnamon appear to be a two year old, blond hair and blue eyes looking alot like her mother. JoDee is the same old JoDee.. she looks at Gage, not interrupting his time wth Danni.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *grins a little at seeing Lilly, hasn't seen the kid as much as she'd have liked to before*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he waves his hand dismissively to ari* it's alright.. i'm fine.. *and finally gets a leg under him.. and pushes himself up* thanks though..

Brenda Maier : * she then looks to Lilly and is thankful she has someone she is familair with*

Steeleyes(MotC): *places a keg down then hears her* oh no..*closes his eyes*.. not here not now..*turns to Lily*..hi you

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *nods a bit to Gage* Ok... You wanna go sit...?

Lilly Losten (NPC): *the child darts for Steel, dodging around a few adults to get to him, and flings herself at his legs, hiding her face*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nods a bit to ari* yeah.. just keep an eye out for jublian.. that's where the last of my duties to danni lays..

JoDee Montgomery: JoDee will help Gage stand up, since she right there.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *thank Gaia it's not "The Look"...but reflexes are hard to overcome* I'm sorry hun...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *hesitates a little, lowering her voice* What are you going to do..?

Brenda Maier : * she softly sighs inwardly thankful she can relax a little *

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *feels the hand on his arm to help him and offers a thank you* thanks.. who ever you are.. *smiles in jo's direction.. his not wearing his glasses tonight.. so his pasty eyes are revealed to everyone.. and he looks like he's been through quite a time as well*

Steeleyes(MotC): *reaches down..touches her head*..hi lily..

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *watches Steel with the child for a moment, sighs a bit as she helps with the last of the kegs*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *SLowly eating his Ice cream he finished it slowly.*

JoDee Montgomery: Cinnamon looks over at the other little girl.. "Lilly!" and promptly disengages from her mother and runs toward Lilly.

Brenda Maier : Jason> you have nothing to be sorry for..this challange is a disgrace..that bastard Cole getting any kind o honable challange in his name ...make me want to * she grumbles and folds her arms over her chest*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he shrugs his shoulder to ari* tell him something..

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she peeks away from Steel's legs at the sound of another child, barely remembering her little playmate, but...* Hi...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *sets the rest down and heads towards Jo Dee, pausing nearby if she's busy*

JoDee Montgomery: "You're welcome Gage." she says quietly, then watches her daught run over to Lilly.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *wishes she'd thought to kick ToG in on Gage just now, but oh well... She looks at him skeptically*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he blinks and turns fully to jo* jo... jo!!! *and he makes to give her a huge hug* it's been so long...

Enters: *looks aound... gaze slowly falling on Danni*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *a little wince* I know...what happened...happened, and...I can't make any excuses.

Brad: *sits on a car hood.... drinking beer*

Brenda Maier : * she takes a deep breath as she knows it's going to take all her willpower to hold her tounge tonight and she leans over to Jason and gives hima kiss to show he is not the direction of her fury this eve....for once and she steps over to Steel* Good evening Steel

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Hallelujah, it's not him she's pissed at tonight*

JoDee Montgomery: Cinnamon, stops.. she gets that shy air about her.. "Hi" gives lilly a curious look, waves and starts to walk back to her mother. JoDee squats down by the pyre' and starts to speak, "Ah Danni.. I never wanted my visit to be for something like this.." she sighs.

Mitch: *stays near Danni's pyre... nodding at those that go by*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She watches Jo Dee at the pyre, can't help but listen since she's close to it anyways...will certainly wait for her to finish, as she beckons to her packmates.*

JoDee Montgomery: (whoops delete the part about Jo squatting) She give Gage a hug. "Yes, it has.."

Steeleyes(MotC): *looks to brenda* ((dadada dum)) ..hi brenda..

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Starts circulating slowly, looking something like a priest offering condolences at a wake*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He goes to throw away his ice cream container in the fire barrel. the spoon following with it.*

Brenda Maier : * she holds a regular size card and hands it to Steel* Steel> I wanted to give you our new address....we will be moving out of the city limits back to the house and with Lilly with us now I wanted to make sure you could come and see her when you wish and you can even take her overnight if you wish

Cindy: *slinks in quietly*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *enters*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *smiles in Steel's direction, nods* Good....*nods to Cindy when she enters*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *gives jo a kiss on the cheek* i'm sorry you had to come back for something like this jo.. *sighs softly and shakes his head* but you've been missed honestly.. i want you to meet someone..

JoDee Montgomery: Cinnamon, hides behind her mother's leg.

Steeleyes(MotC): *nods* thanks Brenda..i have this feeling*looks down at Lily*..i may be there a few times..that is. if she lets me go..

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Linda upon seeing her enter as well* Hey, Linda...*looks tired as hell, and maybe a little jumpy, since she's going to be starting this after all*

Cindy: *stays near the edge of the clearing...... nods slightly to Riley*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *heads over towards Steel* I have something to give you that Danni wanted you to have.

Steeleyes(MotC): evening linda..we need to talk

Steeleyes(MotC): Linda: what was that?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *beckons to Cindy* Don't have to stay over there...

Enters: *stays near the back... for now*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *looks up to Mitch* Um, what time ya got? *like Riley would own a watch*

Cindy: Riley>> I'm... OK... for now.... *glances at Danni's body*

JoDee Montgomery: Gage> I had meant to come down around Christmas, but was unable too. and thank you, I've missed all my friends here as well." she looks to Ari and back to Gage, raising a brow. "Who is it you wish for me to meet?"

Mitch: Riley>> It is nearly time...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Cindy> *nods, small smile* Thanks for showing up....

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He looks over them all silently. still tears in his eyes.*

Brenda Maier : Steel> She needs you in her life still and I don't ever want to take that from her. I wish we could stay at the apartment but it's too small for all of us and at the house she'll have her own room and a place to play her'll of course have to watch she loves an audience.* she offers Steel a small but tight smile as if she's struggling with it*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *quiet, just watching*

Cindy: Riley>> um..... you're welcome... *not sure how to respond to that...*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Mitch, restless and given to pacing* Alrighty, let me know when it's time....

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *in he walks dressed in full army dress regalia.. hat low over his eyes.. and for once.. he's very well cleaned up.. and glances around slowly.. a dead serious look on his face*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *Holds out Danni's Fetish blade...the one she handed over to Linda before the challenge for safe keepings* She said if all went wrong...that this was to remain in tribal hands. She instructed me to give this to you, so you could use the weapon in the fight against the wyrm. Your only charge is to use it well and also to keep it within the tribe.

Steeleyes(MotC): chuckles..yea Brenda..that she does..and dont worry..well get threw this

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *she watches Linda and Steel a moment, proud for Steel but wishing it hasn't happened this way*

Brenda Maier : * she then steps away giving Linda and Steel a chance to speak and steps to a part of the prye noone is near*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *smiles to jo* jo.. *offers a hand twords ari's last known location to him* this is arizona ford.. my girlfriend... ari.. this is JoDee a very old friend of mine..

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *kinda drifts over to Riley*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *gives Steel the Fetish blade (not a Klaive but not a Fangdagger'll need to talk to Kari about Fetish specifics)

Steeleyes(MotC): *looks to Linda..nods..and takes the blade with reverance*.. to do any less would dishonor her..thank you linda..

Brad: *downs the rest of his beer and refills it after hearing Gage call Ari his girlfriend...*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *she nods a little to Jo, offering her hand* Hi...

Steeleyes(MotC): ((just waiting on her e-mail about it*poke poke poke*))

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *nods and steps back*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *smiles in thanks to Linda, looks up at Twomoons when he drifts over* Um, should I start?

JoDee Montgomery: She gives Ari a smile, "Good to meet you Arizona." And give Gage a light squeeze on the arm.. glad to see he has someone in his life.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *looks at Martin**said lowly* I tried to visit Charlie but my freaks out hospital staff and security. I was turned away. It's best if I don't attempt it again.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *smiles to jo then whispers* is cinnamon with you?

Mitch: *speaks up* If we may have everynoe's attention.... it is time

JoDee Montgomery: and of course shakes Ari's hand.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *tugs on Steel's pants*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Ethan then at Ari and blinks.*

Enters: *spots Lilly.. wondering if she'll recognize him*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he stays near the entrance comming to full attention at the boom of mitch's voice*

Brenda Maier : * she stands there her eyes welling up from the emotions she's feeling and she folds her hands over one another *

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She looks around, at everyone who came. Tangly sandy curls a little more frizzy than usual, and there's dark circles under her eyes. She manages to look completely serious for once, which looks odd on the woman so used to smirking or teasing. 'Kay, folks, let's get started....

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: Nice to meet you too, Jo Dee. *offering a smile*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *a slight nod* Call everyone to the Umbra, when you're ready. *places a hand on her shoulder gently* You won't screw up. *more of a statement of fact then anything else*

JoDee Montgomery: Gage> "yes she is.." she pause to have her few words with Danni since thing are getting under way. .. Cinnamon, reaches out and tugs on Gage's pant leg.

Brenda Maier : * she then heads to Coggie Van and motions for Lilly to join her and she opens the door and pulls out 2 long stem roses and hands one to Lilly*

Steeleyes(MotC): kneels down picks Lily up..i have to go for a second..need to go spirit chat *kisses her cheek* ..but ill be right back ok?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (*kills typos*) *glances to Jessie when he enters, nods but doesn't head over to say hi since it looks apparent that she's ready to speak, taking a step or two to stand by the pyre.* Those who can step sideways, do so...

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he chuckles and kneels down at the tugging putting out his arms to the little girl* and how is cinn?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *glances over at Mitch*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *steps back allowing the Banebiters more access to the pyre and center is appropriate. *

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she sighs, but nods, and goes to Brenda to take the flower*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *and calls up to steel* send lilly on over to me steel.. i'll keep tabs on her..

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (once umbra that is)

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *quietly, to Gage* I'll be back in a little bit...

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *slips sideways, taking a polite second row seat*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *steps sideways, going to stand with Brad*

Mitch: *steps sideways*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *steps sideways*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nods to ari* i'll see you when you get back.. oh and ari.. thank you.. for being my pillar..

Steeleyes(MotC): itsk Gage..Brendas got her..*then goes umbral*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *And steps sideways*

Brad: *finishes his 3rd beer... then steps sideways*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *doesn't even seem to find it odd as most of the adults vanish into thin air. She looks up at Brenda* Miss Brenda?

Brenda Maier : * she then holds Lilly's other hand and guides her to Danni's body* This rose is for you Momma....

Brenda Maier : Yes Lilly?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She waits for everyone else that can to step sideways, moving closer to her pack, hoping Steel and Mitch will take the cue and stand closer as well*

JoDee Montgomery: Gage> "Good, me good." cinn's voice cares a slight german accent to it.

Cindy: *doesn't step sideways.... just stays near the edge of the clearing.... wishing Wields was here*

Gabrielle Tureck: * in she enters smoking a cigg as usual a hand stuffed in her jean pocket and a pretty grim look on her face*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As he sees the others. he slowly himself steps sideways. the pain and suffering of his ghostly sickness wraping him as he crosses the barriers of the spiritual world.*

Enters: *watches Lilly... not stepping sideways yet*

Steeleyes(MotC): *stands next to Riley his body swells up to his breed form...*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *glances at the's probably a good thing she's not tall enough to see the top of it, then looks back to Brenda* Miss Brenda... If Mama went to be with Papa....can I go too? *a child's heartbreaking logic*

JoDee Montgomery: Jo speaks quietly while Cinn is occupied with Gage.

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he sighs softly and approaches the pyre as the rest of the garou shift into the umbra. and bows his head* i wish i had more time to get to know you boss.. erm danni.. it's the fact of war.. that people die.. and sometimes by friendly fire... *sighs softly and then comes into a full salute to danni's body standing there silently not moving.. though now.. hooked on a belt behind him.. is what looks to be an american flag*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (umbral) Alright...we got everyone?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he smiles softly* you remeber uncle gage?

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: (umbral) *she hugs her arms around herself, just waiting*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She shifts to her warform when Steel does, short and scruffy, the patchwork coat she wears in homid can be seen as patches of color in her fur. She tilts her head up and lets out a clear, high howl....mourning the loss of the Grand Elder, pack Alpha, and good friend*

Brenda Maier : * her eye twitches as she so wants to make somebody suffer right now but just swallows and kneels down next to Lilly* Lilly,'s not time for you to leave us yet...but when the time is right and fate has said it mama and papa will be waiting for you

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *The word 'stoic' comes to mind. Apparently he's had to do this a few times before*

JoDee Montgomery: Jesse doesn't go un notice.. nor do his words.. Danni hired a guy to work at the shop? It was bound to happen sooner or later.. she can't help but smile a little bit.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she is of course last to step*

Brad: *glances at Ari.... then slips an arm around her comfortingly*

Steeleyes(MotC): his deep howl joins rileys..howling his sadness at loosing his alpha..and friend

Lilly Losten (NPC): *her lower lip quivers just a little* But...I wanna see Papa now... *she only has the vaguest of memories of David...but her mother has kept his memory alive for her*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *and a soft sniffle comes from gage. as his head tilts twords the direction of brenda and lilly.. he's trying his best to stay strong for himself and others* it's not fair brenda..

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *just turns and hides her face against Brad's chest...she can't even bring herself to howl*

Gabrielle Tureck: * she shifts to crinos a mulitcolor blend of whites and greys and browns decorate her and she howls at the loss of a tribesister*

Brad: *joins in the howl*

Mitch: *howls his sorrow and anger*

Brad: *only howls for a short time.... then just holds Ari*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *doesn't howl....simply stands as respectful witness to the passing of a tribal Grandmother.*

JoDee Montgomery: Gage> "Yeah.. I have a picture." Cinn says as she looks around when people start disappearing.

Enters: *watches Lilly.... pondering something......*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Whatever he's been holding back for the last two days comes out, shifting to Crinos and howling his sorrow out to the unkind universe*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *As they Howl he doesnt raises his voice sadly with them. HIs throat was in pain. HE wanted to send Danni away. So she could live peacefully. But he was selfish and wanted her to stay and see Charlie and his daughter.*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *The howl carries that singe of grief, anger, and then resignation, getting out a good lungful for someone of her size, as though she can drive the pain away with the strength of that howl. Finally she trails off...*

Brenda Maier : * she gently embraces Lilly and holds her with one arm* I know Honey I want to see my mama and daddy to...I lost them when I was only 9 and I still miss them.....but your daddy watches over you now....even though he can't be with you right now....

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he stays there saluting her then finally flicks the hand away.. and reaches behind himself grabbing the flag from the belt.. and spreads it out before her pyre then stands looking to her body then solmnly turns and walks away back to the entrance of the maze.. and goes back to an 'at attention' stance there*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she nods a bit, then lays the rose at the bottom of the pyre, since she saw other people put stuff there*

Enters: *heads over to Lilly and kneals... seeing if she recognizes him*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Lets it drop away shortly after Riley does*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she offers Enters a little bit of a smile...she's tired, poor little kiddo, it's been a strange week in her small world* H'lo.

JoDee Montgomery: Gage and Cinn> "come on you two least move away from the pyre." and she guides then both away from the pyre.

Mitch: *lets his howl die shortly after Riley does*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he smiles and chuckles focusing back on cinn* does uncle gage get a hug?

Enters: Lilly>> Hi.... you remember me?

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *goes to stand by Martin*

Brenda Maier : * she knows Lilly doesn't understand right now just wants the ones she loves the most back and is filled with such an emptyness and feels the pain she is in and places her rose next to Lilly's*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *And when that's done, she looks around and reverts back to homid* Okay, folks...I have a few words t'say, as well as the rest of the pack, but I'd like to continue this on the other side, so the Kinfolk c'n have a chance to join us.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she nods, her blond curls bouncing* Uncle Adam.

Gabrielle Tureck: * she softly ends her howl and shifts back down to homid*

Steeleyes(MotC): his howl stronger then the others..hands all his emotion leaves his body...feeling it was his fault finnaly coming out

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Nods and steps back to the physical, reverting to his previous stoic look*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Stays quiet from where he is head lowered.*

Enters: Lilly>> *grins* ya... how you doin?

Gabrielle Tureck: * and then steps wandering off to a place to be by herself*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *nods and is lead by jo back away from the pyre*

JoDee Montgomery: Jo looks over at Lilly... she'll go to her later, not wanting to crowd the child.. not to mention the fact that Jo's been gone for a year or so.

Steeleyes(MotC): lowers his head finally ending his howl..listening to riley

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *And she pops back into the physical side after a moment, hands clasped and waiting for everyone else to get over before talking*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *blinks her large blue eyes at Enters* I wanna go home...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *steps back to the real side, wiping at her eyes with the back of her hand*

JoDee Montgomery: Once settle away from the Pyre, cinn wraps her arms around gage's neck and hugs him tightly like only a kid can.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he stands off by a junked car with jo.. cinn picked up and hefted in his arms as he props his injured body against the car*

Brenda Maier : * she looks at Lilly* You want to go and stay with the girls?

Gabrielle Tureck: ( gone)

Brad: *strokes Ari's hair*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Stays put for a few moments head lowered eyes teary.*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a little, to find Gage holding a small child she doesn't recognize...and has to wonder...*

Steeleyes(MotC): steps back across...shifting down to homid

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Simply waits, looking at Danni's pyre*

Mitch: *returns to the physical world*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *looks up to Miss Brenda* No, I wanna go HOME... *it hasn't registered to her yet that the Maiers' house is now home*

Enters: Lilly>> I know hon.... c'mere... *holds his arms out to her*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods to Steel and then looks out at everyone else, taking a deep breath. Her voice loud enough to be heard by everyone there, making sure of that* First of all, I wanted to thank y'all for coming. The boss lady would've appreciated it, and I know me an' the pack does. And for those who weren't able to come, but gave their condolences, you have the Banebiter's thanks. We're touched, really.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *wanders over near Gage, but doesn't want to intrude...she leans against a car, listening to Riley*

JoDee Montgomery: Jo smiles at Gage and Cinn, old memories flooding bad.. -- Cinn rest her head on Gage's shoulder bright blue eyes watching the people reappearing.

Brenda Maier : * she doesn't frown knowing she wants something of comfort right now and she lets Enters comfort Lilly *

Brad: *lets Ari wander away*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *goes to Enters obediently, giving him a hug, her tiny arms around his neck*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he rocks cinn lightly in his arms unknowing of what's going on around him.. truely.. simply content to be with old friends.. and the young one that meant so much to him once again*

Enters: *hugs Lilly back tightly* Hey... I have something for you kiddo....

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *sighs as she looks down a moment, then back up at the gathered* With Danni, our Grand Elder and my pack alpha gone, it seems the end of an era here at the Junkyard. To my knowledge, she was not only the last original Banebiter, but also one of the last that has been here since the caern was created. That's a long time, and a lot of effort put into serving the people of this sept. She put everything she had into making this sept a better place, and for that she should be honored.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *leans back to look at Enters, her eyes lighting a little at the thought of a present* What?

Brenda Maier : * she steps away from the prye *

JoDee Montgomery: Softly to Gage, "I can take her.."

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *ok, going to pay attention to Riley now...worry about Gage and that little girl later*

Enters: *reaches in his pocket and pulls out a gold locket, simliar to the one Danni wore*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Walks out of the Umbra slowly the sickness of his ritualistic ghost clingins hugging him closely as if he was walking through and with them.*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *reaches to touch the locket with one little finger* For me...?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Walks out of the Umbra slowly the sickness of his ritualistic ghost clingins hugging him closely as if he was walking through and with them.*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *reaches to touch the locket with one little finger* For me...?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *his head resting softly against cinns* no that's alright jo.. i haven't seen her in so long.. i'm fine..

Brenda Maier : * she knows Lilly is in good hands and walks over to Jason *

Enters: Lilly>> Ya... for you.... push this button here *guides her finger toward it*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Enters from the maze right behind Marty's entrance from the Umbra. Whistling to get his attention. A large brown paper bag is tucked under one arm*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *pushes the button with a little help*

Mitch: *notices Cassy's enterance*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *pauses* I didn't know Danni as well as I would have liked, given that I was one of the last current Banebiters to join, but I'll say this: she a good and fair alpha to the Banebiters. She always listened to us, and gave encouragement when she needed it. *smirks* Nor was she afraid to give our asses a good kick when we needed it either. I'm just glad she gave this crazy Irish bitch the chance to belong her family.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *tears well in her eyes a bit, trying not to watch Lilly...*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *wraps an arm around Brenda, keeping that rock look up for the moment*

JoDee Montgomery: "Okay" she whisper to gage. -- and cinn's quiet voice speak in german, Jo shushes her for now.

Enters: Lilly>> *at the push of the button the locket opens... and inside are pictures, one of David and one of Danni... just the heads off of the picture of them taken at his wedding*

Brenda Maier : * she on the other hand doesn't have the rock face her eyes have murder in them and her arms are folded over her chest*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he nods a bit hearing riley's words*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at Cassy tears in his eyes Silent waiting for his turn.*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She blinks a lot for a moment, wanting to finish before tearing up, hopefully...breathe..* I won't ramble for much longer, but I was hoping that this is where the rest of you can pitch in, after my packmates have their say. Everyone that's got a story to share, please come forward and do so. I can see a few folk here that knew her for a long time, and they're all welcome to share their thoughts, as well as those who haven't known her. Feel free to add to the pyre what you will, and have as much of the moonshine as ya want, though 'ware the powerful kick it has. And that's it, I'm done...*looks to her packmates* Your turn, guys..

Mitch: *nods for Steel to go if he wants to*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *nods again and watches riley.. with a small motion of his head.. giving her an offering to join him by the entrance*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *and with that, she steps back, a shaky breath drawn as she looks to her packmates, wanting to hear what they have to say*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *smiles for Enters* Thank you... *remembering the manners that Steph and Brenda have taught her, more than her mother*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Riley can't at the moment, but she gives a small nod that she will as soon as she can*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Takes a stand besides Marty, and grasps his hand with her free one. Her face is emotionless, and seemingly indifferent. The end product of all those heavy walls that were years in the making, in order to protect herself from the horrors, and the insanity of the life she used to lead, and the one she is still making for herself*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *leans into Brenda a little, rubbing her side a little*

Steeleyes(MotC): *steps up*..well..cept for Riley here.. boss lady was the first one here to really welcome me in.. she took me into the garage..cause i needed a place..then she took me into her pack..i know i couldnt joined other packs..hell was offered place in three of um...but summin toldme i was gonna be a Biter with her...*sighs..breathing deeply*

Enters: Lilly>> *smiles* now they can always be with you... no matter where you are... *slips the locket over her head*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *realizes she's just standing there alone, and moves back to Brad's side...Gage is busy*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *nods to Enters, then looks over as her beloved Steelie is talking*

Brenda Maier : * she then looks to Lilly her eyes softening along with her expression as well as her eyes welling up and she blinks it back*

Brad: *rubs Ari's back gently when she comes back... comforting her*

Enters: Lilly>> Wanna go over there?

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he rests there against the car listening to what's being said.. musing lightly to cinn every now and again*

Steeleyes(MotC): she showed me.. that..there wasnt nothing wrong with me.. even though during the full moon i shift up..never teased me..or taunted in fun.. and she made me the family i never had...and ill never forget yea boss..*looks down at her*..ill make yea proud of me...*clses eyes..steps back* go mitch

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He listened quiet head lowered. He stood there like a ghost or a shadow himself. dressed from head to toe.*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *glances back at Enters...and finally shakes her head...she doesn't quite understand what all is happening, so she'll stay right here with Miss Brenda and Mr. Jason*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Smiles softly at Steel's words, for once there's no smartass comment when he speaks, a small nod to say that he did good*

Brenda Maier : * she then hold out her arms to Lilly possibly needing to be held more then Lilly*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *She calmly sets the bag under her arm down at her side with a soft clank of glass bottles. Then stands errect once more, in silence, watching, only there as a support for her broken, and sick packmate*

JoDee Montgomery: (on the phone, but will archive)

Lilly Losten (NPC): *hugs Brenda*

Brenda Maier : * she gently lifts her up so she can see better and whsipers to her* Everyone who knew your mama is saying things about her and saying there good-byes

Mitch: There is nothing I can say that would do justice to my feelings for Danni.... she was one of the people that taught me what it was to be human... a concept I was not entirely familiar with... she taught me to laugh and to joke, yet allowing me to be myself without judging me....... she will be dearly missed... *steps back and removes his shades to wipe his eyes*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *nods, watching Mitch while staying close to his family*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *she nods a little, then whispers to Brenda, that child's whisper that carries louder than any shout* Do I have to talk?

Brenda Maier : Lilly> * she does smile a bit at that* only if you want to ...only if you want to

Lilly Losten (NPC): *nods a little, and thinks, not sure if she wants to*

Brenda Maier : * she whispers to Lilly* But you can always talk to you mama and papa any time... I still do from time to time there always with you..

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *she reaches out a hand to Mitch, squeezing his shoulder lightly, looking over the gathered with a nod* Whoever else wants ta speak up, go ahead...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *er, squeezing his arm most likely...not tall enough to reach that shoulder*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Looks at Marty, and gives him a gentle nod of reassurance, in case he decides to step foward* I'm right her amigo...*said with a whisper*

Brenda Maier : * she will step forward if noone else does*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *and the old blind kinfolk rises up from the car.. grabbing his cane.. with cinn still in his arms.. he moves forward twords the pyre using riley's voice as guidance*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *waits...she has something to say, but doesn't want to go first*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Steps forward slowly.*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *a soft smile and nod to Brenda, since she was the first to step forward*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *glancing over her shoulder, seeing Gage on his feet, and leaves Brad to go see if Gage needs any help, her voice quiet* Gage..?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Steps back and waits letting Brenda go first.*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly to ari* yeah.. please.. lead the way ari..

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *glances to Martin with a nod, so he'll be next*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *very softly, not wanting to interrupt, as she leads Gage toward the front of the gathering* Brenda's up there right now...

Lilly Losten (NPC): *silent and solemn, her blue eyes wide*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly.. as him and ari comes to the front of the gathering.. and he settles to a stop.. planting the cane down into the ground.. and adjusts little cinn in his arm* thank you ari.. i'd be lost without you.. *whispered*

Brenda Maier : * she holds Lilly and clears her voice* Danni...was my friend and even though she is gone I have been bestoyed with a wonderful little girl who I hope I can raise to be as strong, caring and good warrior as she was. * she pauses and wants to vent but will wiat for another time to do so* Thank you ...* she steps back*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods, listening to Brenda, glad that Lilly's in good hands with her and Moony*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *smiles just a small bit, even though Gage cant' see it, and squeezes his arm, continuing to narrate* I think Marty is going to go next... *and because she loves children, she smiles a bit at Cinn, too*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *tilts her head to Martin, letting him know he can go now*

Brenda Maier : * she whispers to Lilly* See that wasn't so want to say something when everyone is done?

JoDee Montgomery: ( back) Listens, nods hearing lilly will be staying with Twomoon and Brenda.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *shrugs a little to Brenda, and hides her face*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly as ari lets him know who's going* thank you.

Brenda Maier : * she holds Lilly tighter and whispers swaying a bit * It's don't have to do anything you don't want to...

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *glances upward as thunder rumbles faintly...* ((RL storm moving in here, folks, I may disappear))

JoDee Montgomery: cinn looks around.. wondering why she is being moved. sees Ari smile at her and smiles back then hides her face by burying it in Gage's shoulder.

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Gives Marty a nudge...*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Steps forward silently. He lifts his head and looks at everybody.* I am Martin kurst. Also known as the Quickflash. I have now spent a full year in this sept. and have come to know manny of you here as trusted people and friends. One of them wich in my heart, my mind and soul was too be the best at this was Danni.*Takes in a deep breath.*

Brenda Maier : Lilly...would you like to go to the house?

Enters: *looks at Twomoons... wanting to talk to him later*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *shakes her head. They're talking about her mama, she wants to stay*

Brenda Maier : * she nods* Lilly...okay we'll stay then

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *catches Riley's eye, so she knows that Gage wants to speak, soon*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Ari, after Martin's done*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Lights a smoke, and stands with an arm folded over her chest...*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He goes on fighting back the tears.* Suffering this losss bring down our strength as well as our hearts. I have been a proud member at serving this sept under Dannis serious and watchfull eyes. SHe was a mother to us all. I was for one Proud to be Sept Fool for her as she was our Grand Elder. Sadly i will be leaving this position untill a new Grand elder comes and find me worthy of this. But as a Final farewell. Danni this is for all the pranks i did. That and your Pink chair.

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Steps in quietly, removing his cap.*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *And he presses a small button on himself. Wich has him blow up in confetti and also has parts of his trench coat explode in Whipcream.*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks at Marty, and busts out in a slightly tearful giggle, hurriedly hushing herself and explaining to Gage what happened*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *steps forward to speak*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *And for an instance her wall cracks, and a small genuin smile creases her rigid expression.*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Snorts, trying not to laugh.*

Cindy: *spots Cap and heads over to him*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *her eyes get really wide as the man blows up*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods again and smiles softly and lets out a small whoop for marty's display*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She jumps slightly, at the sudden confetti, but can't help smirk a little, thinking that they all needed that* Gage, ya wanted to speak? *nods to Linda, letting her know she can go next*

Brenda Maier : * she whsipers to Lilly* He's playing a joke on himself....

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *squeezes Gage's arm a little*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Tries for Rileys attention, and gestures to the bag, and a chance to speak when available*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *gives Brenda a look that clearly says "riiiight..."*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Nods to Cindy, standing back and watching the little ceremony. In his left hand is a grocery bag holding three mason jars.*

Brenda Maier : * she smiles at Lilly* really he does that stuff all the time....

Steeleyes(MotC): *just grins watching Marty..nods to him..with a good job mouthed*

JoDee Montgomery: She does wonder abut Danni's little boy.. since Brenda didn't mention him.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly as the grinding gears of his body begin to motor forward again.. carrying cinnamon in one arm.. and being led by ari with the other.. he steps before the gathering* thank you marty for your strength and jests.. danni would have appreciated it.. *then he grows more serious*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *A blink, and a ghost of a smile for a moment*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *she glances to Cassy at the gesture, nodding that she can go after her pack alpha...this is starting to feel like traffic control, but she doesn't mind. Actually, she's glad that so many want to speak about Danni*

Cindy: Cap>> *quietly* what do you have?

Mitch: *smiles a bit at Marty*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Silently walks back to his place going quiet once more.*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): Danni and I have not always seen eye to eye. Hell we probably still don't but we'll hash that out in the afterlife. Shes made mistakes, but was punished. She was unrepentant at times, but had the backbone to stand up for what she believed. Just as I thought she had lost the way, she would surprise me and find it again. For all this I am here to say goodbye to the Grandmother of my tribe. Her death is a great loss to the sept. *not as warm perhaps but respectful*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Speaks quietly to Cindy.* 'Shine. One for Danni, th'other two for th'rest.

Cindy: Cap>> *nods* oh... cool... *stays near him, watching the goings on*

JoDee Montgomery: Cinn peeks out when Gage move and start to speak.. being all shy cause she thinks everyone is looking at her.

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): *steps back with her pack*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Will hold off until Gage is finished with what he has to say, and welcomes the chance to rethink her speach since Linda just stole the words right outta her mouth*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods at Linda's speech, didn't think it'd be as warm knowing her and Danni but still glad she took the time to speak up*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *If Gage is done She'll go next*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he lifts his head* i had recived a letter from danni when she passed on... it read clearly.. how we all should live on.. even after her death.. and not mourn ourselves into the ground with her... she declared that she wasn't happy.. after david's death.. and was never truely happy.. it read further.. that now.. she is gone to be with david.. and that we all should be happy for her... *smiles* i stand before you.. a battered man.. that has been in this cearn for years.. many of you know me.. or know of me... i have gone through much.. in these times.. but i have managed to keep my strength and resolve.. thanks to danni.. for a great better of time.. she was a breath of strength.. that kept me going when all else was falling to ashes about me... and we should all take that lession from her.. if nothing else.. that we all need one another.. in defence of this cearn.. and in defence of us.. we are one.. and we will always be one.. *bows his head* thank you.. *then steps away*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Nods to Ethan, as picks up her paper bag, and begins distributing 40oz. bottles of "Old English" mault liquour to each one of Danni's pack mates, and one for herself*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *A small smile at Gage's words, biting her lip as she looks down a moment...but looks back up to see who's next*

JoDee Montgomery: What she was going to say was just said by Gage.. she blinks.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *A little surprised at the gift, she takes the bottle when it's given to her, nods to Cassy with a soft* Thank you....

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks tears back at Gage's speech, and helps guide him back*

Mitch: *takes the liquor...*

Brad: *eyes the liquor.... mmmmmm*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *yawns a bit, snuggled into Brenda's arms, but doesn't want to miss anything in case someone else blows up*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nuzzles cinn lightly and chuckles then leans over and kisses ari's cheek*

Brenda Maier : * she gently sways with Lilly*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Unscrews the cap as she speaks* Yah know. I had some stuff to say, but my Alpha pretty much expressed everything i had intended. Danni and i were not the best of friends, but she was my GE, and that carried with it a weight of respect that far outweighed any differences between us.*pauses, and holds up her beer* on the streets, it's not uncommon to loose two or three good friends within a week. For that we have a tradition of remembering them. *Poors the neck out of her bottle onto the ground aside Danni, but not on her.* This ones for all the fallen soldiers. One for the homies. *takes a long chug when she's done*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *nuzzles Gage's cheek in return*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: ....Anyone else? *placing the bottle down, she'll be sure to enjoy it in a bit*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: I'll speak... *not sure if it's her turn yet*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Nods to Cassy at her speech, taking a deep breath*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Nods, deferring to tribe before he says anything*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he watches solmnly. then begins to move forward to the front of the crowd*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *and once up front he waits for others to finish.. wanting to be last*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Sure, Ari...*small, quick smile and tilts her head at Twomoons...going first come first serve*

Enters: *straightens his Armani suit and quirks a brow at Cassy.... 'one for the homies?'... is she serious?*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Falls back in place with her pack, and continues to watch silently for the remainder of the service*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He listens quietly. head lowered. covered in fresh whip cream and confetti.*

JoDee Montgomery: JoDee will indicate to riley that she wishes to say a few words.. but of course will remain where she is because Ari spoke up first.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *her gaze goes to Jessie for a moment, going to give him his chance like everyone else*

Brenda Maier : * she glares a bit at Cassy knowing how she really felt about Danni*

Linda ~Hits heads with pipe~ (S-E-D): (OK I'll be here IC for the rest of it...but RL...well I gotta go...laters)

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *smiles to Jo Dee, was hoping she would be willing to say a few words, and nods to her to let her know that she can go after Ari and Twomoons*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *raises his hand showing he's not going up yet*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *nods a bit to Riley, leaving Gage to step forward* I... The first time I ever went into battle... I was still a cub. I'd only been here a few weeks, only been shifted slightly longer than that. But I fought, even though I was scared to death, beside Danni-rhya, and Grandpoppa David. I've always been proud to say that. When we were done, Danni-rhya told me I'd done a good job. And at that moment, I was actually proud to be Garou. I wasn't afraid, anymore. *blinking back tears, her voice hitching a little* And...I don't know that things would have gone so well...for me...without her. So, I guess I just wanna tell her thank you. *ok, that's it...the tears run freely, and she flees center stage to go weep in Gage's arms*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): ((Gotta split. Cassy will stay till the end as well))

Lilly Losten (NPC): *blinks a little, seeing Miss Ari crying, and looks to Brenda slightly alarmed*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *gage wraps his free arm around ari.. kissing the top of her head.. in comfort.. keeping cinn lightly bounced in his other arm*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *blinks a bit at Ari's words to keep back tears, touched by the sentiment*

Brenda Maier : * she smiles to Lilly* She's crying becuase she hurts that your Mama isn't here anymore..she hurts in here* she points to Lilly heart*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *nods a bit to Miss Brenda, but her lower lip quivers...possibly about to burst into tears herself*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *And looks to Twomoons when Ari's done, hoping to hear a few words from someone that knew her longer*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: I really can't say I knew Danni the best, or even that well. The first time I ever really talked to her, I was healing her after a fight with one of my packmates. Afterwards, we really didn't speak much, and then she became Grand Elder. We didn't have the best relationship, I distinctly recall her decking me on one occasion. What kept us from fighting more often then we did, I believe, is due to a mutual respect and recognition for what we could do. Knowing that working together as much as we could, we would be greater then either of us could be as seperate individuals. She was not perfect, far from it. But she kept us together in our darkest hour, providing leadership when it was needed most. She was honest with herself, knowing that her time here was finite, and planning for an Ahrouns' end. As befitting her rank and station, she bore a great load for the rest of us. I have found in my time, that the best way to honor one who has fallen, is to attempt as best we can, (cn'td)

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: to carry those burdens ourselves. *maybe a little preachy, maybe a little wordy, but he's a CoGgie*

Enters: *moves over near Brenda... ready to hold Lilly if she wants him to*

Brenda Maier : * she can't look at Lilly as if she does start to cry Brenda may just be joining her*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: to carry those burdens ourselves. *maybe a little preachy, maybe a little wordy, but he's a CoGgie*

Enters: *moves over near Brenda... ready to hold Lilly if she wants him to*

Brenda Maier : * she can't look at Lilly as if she does start to cry Brenda may just be joining her*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She keeps her head tilted respectfully when Twomoons speaks, a small smile at the wordiness but then she rambled on for a good while too*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *still has her face hidden against Gage's shoulder*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *looks to Enters, still has that look like she's not sure if she's going to cry or not*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Hearing Lilly and Brenda. Marty turns to Lilly. Trying to hide his tears behind his scarf. Still being covered in whip cream and also confetti. He digs in his pockets and pulls out a spoon for Lilly.*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he looks around for any others that may want to speak before him*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *tilts her head at Marty and the spoon, sufficiently distracted from crying by the funny man*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Nods to Jo Dee, since she wanted the chance to speak*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *steps back quietly...damn his one lung, coulda spoken a lot more if it wasn't for that*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *coo's softly to ari.. and cinn.. trying to remain that strength for them both*

Brenda Maier : * she has her head turn despratley trying to blink back her tears welcoming the distrations of Enters and Martin*

JoDee Montgomery: Jo steps forward if no one else does. --- Cinn pats Ari's head.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *looks up and offers a watery smile to Cinn...she really has to find out who this lovely little girl is*

JoDee Montgomery: She's not one to on public speaking but she does want to say something, "Only a few present know me.. but I was here before the caern was a caern. I watch as it grew in strength and I watch it when is grew weak.. but grew strong again. Heed, Gage's words, mourn her but find comfort in the knowledge that she is with David once again. Work to keep the caern strong.. that is what David did, and Danni after him. It is the Gnawer way, Gnawer are survivors.. So for those that have gone before use, give claw and blood to keep this scared land in Gaia's hands." She did not spiting the other tribes here, she is just speaking with the point of view of a Gnawer, her gaze moves to each person present. Then looks at the pyre, "I will miss you my dear friend." Then steps back to allow other to speak.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *wraps an arm around Brenda, going back to being a quiet rock*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *HE took the time to take the spoon and hold it with his fingers. Whispering.* I can do magic did you know. I can make this spoon turn to rubber.*And he shows her the oldest trick in the book. Having the spoon trick of the eye of it as if it were actualy wobbling in his fingers like rubber.*

JoDee Montgomery: She managed to keep her tears in check.. for the most part.. raising her hand up to wipe away the few tears that got away.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods her thanks to Jo Dee, thoughtful at those words*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *her blue eyes get wide in astonishment as Marty does his trick*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods lightly when jo speaks.. at least someone with better articulation made his point*

Enters: Marty>> *smiles* I got you beat... lemme see that spoon...

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *his eyes search yet again for others that may want to speak*

Stag Spirit: (who is next?)

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *raises her head finally, taking a deep breath and wiping her face off*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She glances around after Jo Dee is done, to see who else hasn't spoken*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *when ari raises her head.. he leans over to meet her face slowly with a small kiss*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *offers Gage a small smile, keeping one arm around him*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *seeing no others.. he moves forward now.. nodding to riley*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods to Jessie, a small smile* Go ahead....

JoDee Montgomery: Cinn smiles impishly at Ari.. She doesn't understand way every one is so sad.. Her arm still around Gages neck. -- Jo looks over at her daughter with Gage and Ari, just checking on her.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *smiles for Cinn, whispering* Hi...

Lilly Losten (NPC): *frowns a bit at Marty, for calling Uncle Adam the wrong name*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he nods.. and comes to full attention for a few seconds.. saluting twomoons and the bane biters... then moves to the pyre and where he left the unfolded american flag spread out before it... and kneels down.. picking it.. and neatly folds it into a triangle.. then presents it to mitch his face stone washed.. no words*

Enters: Marty & Lilly>> *smirks* see, the trick is... 'there is no spoon' *chuckles* #Elemental Favor# *and the spoon physically bends around... then straightens again*

JoDee Montgomery: Ari> Cinn says hello to her in German.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *and really boggles at Enters' trick*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She watches Jessie with curiousity, glancing to Mitch when he's given the flag*

Stag Spirit: *the fires of a nearby fire barrel flare up. At there height the flames resemble the horns of a stag*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Steps forward, pulling one of the mason jars from his bag.*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *jumps a bit as the fire flares*

Steeleyes(MotC): *looks over seeing the Spirit appearing* what the??

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods to Cap...and tilts her head when she notices the fire barrel for a moment, a faint smile*

JoDee Montgomery: The fire gets her attention.

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *doesn't matter to jessie.. as he hands the flag over to mitch.. then turns.. and comes to a full attention stance again.. facing danni's pyre.. and salutes it.. staying in that position*

Stag Spirit: *there is mental link to all those open to it* My child Belladonna Cellura has asked me to bring to all here her words of condolences. Danni was a bright light in the darkness that surrounds us in these trying days. Her loss is felt far beyond this humble caern. If anyone would be welcomed into Gaia's arms Danni will be. Let her spirit live on, inspire us to be as strong and brave as she was.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he coughs* what's going on?

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Shaked his head at enters.* Show off.*Went to the SED car and came back.* But this will win.*And from his coat he pulls out a small carton of ice cream vanilla and opens it.* To go with the spoon for the little Lady.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods her thanks to Jessie...eyes widening a little at the sudden mental link*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Turns to the Fire barrel flare and blinks.*

Mitch: *takes the flag from Jessie... nodding*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *is about to explain to Gage when that mental link goes off...and actually pales just slightly, looking to Gage*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *blinks a bit* bella.. *whispered.. and he falters softly distancing*

JoDee Montgomery: She smiles hearing the message... old friends near and far..

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *squeezes Gage's arm*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Nods, still confused, then opens one jar slowly and pours out a clear fluid onto the pyre--not onto Danni herself, but the wood, before stepping back and handing a second jar to the Banebiters.*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Woah...*but it's a pleased grin at that, surprised and impressed that Bella would take such efforts to reach them*

JoDee Montgomery: she moves over to Gage,, placing a hand on his arm.. -- Cinn, looks at the fire with wide eyes.

Lilly Losten (NPC): *her eyes go VERY VERY wide as she hears a voice from no where, tears of fright welling in her blue eyes*

Stag Spirit: Go with on with Honor and courage *the fire fades and link severed*

Enters: *uses the gift to make the spoon spin around in mid-air in front of Lilly's face.... then, when Marty presents the ice cream... he makes the spoon dart into the ice cream, sticking*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *shakes his head softly* at least she still thinks about us..

Brenda Maier : * she holds Lilly* It's okay ...shhhhh it's a's speaking about your mama

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She takes the jar unless another of her packmates does so, nods to Cap* Thanks...

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *turns slightly to greet the Stag, speaking in it's own language* ~ss~ Her thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated, Friend.

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): *Steps in. Not only is he wearing what looks like a clean shirt, but he's shaved sometime today and his hair is wet down and slicked back. In one hand is a plastic grocery bag.*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *kisses Gage's cheek softly*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Holy shit. Bubba in a clean shirt.*

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): *Nods to folks--without even any sick comments, then digs into the bag and pulls out a pair of plastic gloves. He puts these on carefully.*

Brenda Maier : * okay now that makes her eyes widen more then the stag speaking to her ...Bubba*

JoDee Montgomery: Gage> "Did you ever really doubt that she did?" said softly.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *Takes a deep breath, it's been quite a night. She looks around again* We've had a lot of people speak up -thanks, guys-, though if I missed anyone, please go ahead....

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She nods to Bubba, wondering...*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a bit at Bubba's appearance, and quickly relays the sight to Gage*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *shakes his head* i don't know.. *too many things... and he goes solmn*

Mitch: *watches Bubba... quirking a brow*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (brb, go ahead)

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *and he stiffens suddenly.. with another nod to something* thank you..

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): *Once the gloves are on and snugged tight, he reaches into the bag again, pulling out two magazines. He strips the plastic off the first one--Playgirl. The second is apparently a pictorial of the same type, and the two are placed next to Danni on the pyre, although somewhat discreetly. Then Bubba walks over to the firebarrel, stripping off the gloves and tossing them in.*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (Porn-surfing in the guard shack. creative lurking): *and if Bubba dares say that Jurg offered to take guard duty for the night so he could make it, there's gonna be some erased porn*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She fights the urge to chuckle, noting the Playgirl, not sure if she wants to know what the other magazines are. But she understands the sentiment and nods to Bubba when he walks away*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *blinks a bit...but in some weird way, appreciates the sacrifice he made...she guesses...*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *that explains the plastic gloves...*

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): ((*G* Exactly. He's not touchin' that stuff with his bare skin...))

Lilly Losten (NPC): *ok, this has been a very night to end an even longer week...and even Marty and Enters' antics can't hold out against a tired child...her lip quivers, and tears start rolling down her cheeks*

JoDee Montgomery: she whispers to Gage, "Don't dwell on the past Gage, you've come too far to fall back.."

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): *Stands in the background, watching.*

Brenda Maier : * she holds Lilly* Come on lets head to the house ..okay? * she doesn't wait she just stats walking*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly twords jo* i'm not dwelling.. just remebering.. are you and cinn here for a time?

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *quietly excuses himself to walk with brenda and Lilly*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *turns to stare at both her packmates for a long moment, then turns to look back at the gathered* Alright, unless anyone else has something to say, that's it...and before we finish this, just want to say thanks again y'all. You really made this night better, and gave Danni the send off she deserves. *nods to Mitch and Steel, the pyre can be lit at any time*

Lilly Losten (NPC): *clings to Brenda, sobbing quietly, until they are almost out of sight, and then a plaintive wail rises from the child's throat* NooooOOOOO!!! MAMA!!!!

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *half sobs herself, hearing Lilly, and huddles against Gage again*

Mitch: *looks at Steel to see if he wants to light it*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *bites her lip at hering Lilly's wail...heart going out to the kid, she'll be sure to visit the child with Steel sometime soon*

JoDee Montgomery: gage> "yes, we will be staying for a time.. I want to make sure the shop keeps running, Lilly has a home and I want to find out about Danni's little boy."

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *The scream of Lilly rips in his heart as he turns back to the spire.* Time to eat Cake Danni Rhya! This is your last one.

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *and hearing lilly.. is what finally made the straw the broke the camel's back.. slowly.. tears start streaming from his blind eyes.... he doesn't give any indication or sounds beyond the tears* farewell danni..

Brenda Maier : * she just keeps holding Lilly as she walks as Lilly is clearly not in her happy place anymore*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *and jessie stands a few steps away from the pyre.. remaining in the salute to danni*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *softly* I'll be home in a bit, love.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *mutters softly* Hope you liked it, boss...*turns to face the pyre, reaching for the flask in her jacket pocket, having taken a little for herself of the moonshine that's in kegs around the place for everyone*

Steeleyes(MotC): *nods and goes fetching a wraped up 2x4...dunks it in somealchhol..and places it into the fire barrel..thrn walks back to the pyre nods to his packmates then looks at DannI8.. so long boss...well miss yea* and lits the pyre*

Mitch: *stands back a bit as it starts to go up...*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *The pyre, having been coated in grain alcohol by Cap moments before, will probably catch fire rather quickly.*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *takes a couple of steps back when Steel light the pyre, raises her flask to it and takes a good swig*

JoDee Montgomery: hearing Lilly wail.. get Jo's water works going.. Cinn hear it too and promptly start crying and reaching for her mother..

Enters: *watches them light the pyre....and sighs softly*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *tears run down her cheeks, watching the fire catch*

Steeleyes(MotC): steps back..watching the prye burn.. it reflects in his mirrored eyes..almost as strongly..

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he shifts his arm twords jo for her to take cinn.. he can't talk anymore.. to do so will reveal more hurt then he wants to show(\*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She wipes at her eyes, the tears that she was fighting back getting the better of her*

Brenda Maier: * she nods to Jason and gets in the car after putting Lilly in the passenger side and belting her in*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Looks at the fire burning away the pain or at least he hopes it would. The Smell of burnt cheese cake slowly filling there air.*

JoDee Montgomery: Jo takes cinn from Gage, "Thank you." Craddles her daughter in her arms.. "shh.." her gaze going to the burning pyre.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Makes his way back in after kissing Brenda and Lilly*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *the salute remians while the pyre is lit.. and then he flicks it down* rest in peace.... hero.. *and turns.. now that he's performed his duty.. he lets a few tears slide down his face.. as he starts twords riley*

Enters: 2moons>> Dr. Maier...

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *She stands still and stares at the burning pyre solemnly, an odd sight since she's rarely solemn about anything. Her head turns a little when Jessie approaches* Yeah? *voice a little thick*

Bubba (Denying the urge to crack open a cold one.): *Nods, watching the flames go up, then as the body can't be seen for the shimmering air and the light, he turns without a word and heads back for the Guard Shack. In honor of Danni, he will only watch soft-core porn tonight.*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: want some company? *said softly*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: Yeah? *grabbing some coffee, there's gonna be about a dozen sad, drunk Garou within the hour...*

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: ((*LMFAO @ Bubba*))

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): (( LOL))

Enters: 2moons>> I was wondering about J.D.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: ((Now ~that's~ a tribute))

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *sniffles, finally tearing her eyes away from the fire to look at Gage*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *takes another swig, the moonshine -really- potent, if one can tell by the scent. Drunk? Oh yeah, going to get totally smashed tonight*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: Taken care of.

Enters: 2moons>> Did you find his father?

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *his face is directed at the warmth of the pyre.. tears reflecting back the flames flickering*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *small nod, wipes at her eyes* Sure, if yer willing to get smashed along with the rest of us...only way to do things proper, yanno.

Brad: *gets another glass of the stuff in the keg*

Cindy: *still stays near Cap*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *his face is held away from the pyre.. and he sighs softly* can we go home now?

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Opens up the third jar, starts to hand it to Cindy, then shrugs and takes a sip.* Sorry.

JoDee Montgomery: Jo catching enter's talking to Twomoons... and listens as she calms Cinn down.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: Found his fathers' other son. From there, shouldn't be too hard.

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *then glances back down to her and smiles softly* yeah.. getting smashed sounds good right about now.

Cindy: Cap>> 'salright... I still remember what happened the last time I had some of that.... well.. I ~sorta~ remember *smiles a bit*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Walks over to Riley not looking back at the Pyre.* I want the hard stuff and the strongest you got.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *she nods* Yeah...let's go. *isn't one for getting smashed with the others...and doesn't want to be around Brad while he does*

Enters: 2moons>> *nods* I see.... *sounds disappointed*

Steeleyes(MotC): grabs a and fills it with the shine.. drinks some..and gags..

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (Porn-surfing in the guard shack. creative lurking): *and as Bubba approaches the shack once more, the sounds emenating from within sound something like "what's my name, bitch? say my name? *thwack*" "Rumpled Foreskin! oh god! Rumpled Foreskin!" "yeh bitch... turn THIS inta gold *fapfapfapfapfap"*

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *he nods softly* lead the way.. *and calls out* jo.. i'll catch you around at the shop okay?

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *The flask is empty before long, which means a trip to the keg to refill* Jessie> *small smile, sniffles a moment* Good, appreciate it then...and if I start to sing, whap me a good one. Then again, everyone else might get too drunk to care what my voice sounds like for once...

Brenda Maier: * she slowly drives off with a sobbing Lilly*

Brenda Maier: ( gone)

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: Martin> *points to a keg* There ya's good for two things, stripping paint and killin' brain cells....

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: *leads Gage out, waving to Brad and Steel as she goes*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *smirks at watching Steel* Toldja it was potent...

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): ((Smacks Riley for quoting the Matrix))

Steeleyes(MotC): *nods to Ari*...night...

Steeleyes(MotC): *downs some more..and then more..*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he nods and laughs a bit wipping the tears away with his white gloved hands... and then reaches down and wipes a few stray tears from her face as well* probably not.. just don't sing wide open plains song.. or that chumbawumba song.

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: I's not exactly the best but...we go with what we got.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (*smirks* Be thankful she hasn't gone off on her Irish tunes while some folks are sober enough to hear her...)

JoDee Montgomery: "At the Shop.. Gage." Jo says..-- then cinn calls out "Unc.. Gage!"

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *heads out with ari*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (Porn-surfing in the guard shack. creative lurking): OOC:Ken>>that's "Degreasing engines and killing braincells"

Enters: 2moons>> If... for some reason... he can't be found... call me OK? ((*wonders why he didn't get smacked for quoting the Matrix earlier* *G*))

Ethan 'Gage' Livebrook: *stops long enough to wave* bye bye cinn!!... i'll see you soon!!!.. love you!!!.. *and then heads out*

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *raises her flask to Steel when he takes more* Tha's the spirit....*she shakes her head and smirks to Jessie* Nah, but I'll prob'ly go on for several rounds of 'Finnegan's Wake' if ya let me ....

Steeleyes(MotC): *flops down..and becomesone with the barrel..*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): ((Missed it.)) *Watches the folks, digging out his pipe.*

Steeleyes(MotC): ((well players got a LONG drive tommorrow..twicein gonna go to bed.. night gang))

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Nods* No prob.

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *smiles and heads over to the keg to get himself a mug of 'shine... and settles down on the couch.. taking a few long swallows of it.. making the bitter beer face after each drink*

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *Fills himself a container for the liquid and drinks hard. half chocking himself and he sits down with the others.*

Steeleyes(MotC): ((gone))

JoDee Montgomery: "Unc.. Gage!" she wail then buries her face in her mother's neck.. crying... Mother comforts her, "you'll see him later, sweetie."

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (gonna close this window soon also, got work in the morning. But hey, it was fun...) *Watches Jessie and chuckles a bit, settling down on the couch for a moment, as long as she can still get a good view of the pyre* You'll get used to it...granted, your tongue might get numb but that's half the fun.

Ari Ford ~Quick Fingers~ {SR Beta}: ((Ok guys, I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm going to bed. This was awesome, ya'll, thanks!))

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: (*waves* Nighters, Kari)

JoDee Montgomery: She walks over to Twomoons and Enters, "I'd like to see Danni's little boy if I could."

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he laughs a bit at riley and pokes his tounge out at her* i think it's already numb.. *takes off his hat and rests it in his lap* how you holding up? *takes another long swallow*

Enters: 2moons>> thanks man... *quietly watches the fire for a while*

JoDee Montgomery: ( Night Kari)

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *winces a little* Sorry Jo...JD and Val left...I think.

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): (('Nite, ma'am.))

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (better you than me): *makes his way out of the maze now that Bubba's returned to his post... in multiple senses of the word. sounds like he's softly singing that tune from "Beauty and the Beast"... or something like it* grope... her.. breast, grope her breast, slap your wang upon her chest. oh c'mon don't be a wussy, sneak on up and ram her pu*looks up at the pyre briefly. shrugs and heads for the DoW vans upon seeing all the long faces. Doesn't mourn, but at least he's being respectful of the living and not pissing in their snow*

Cindy: *stays near Cap.... wondering where Wields is*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (better you than me): OOC:alas, the percussive section in 7th grade had a parody of the entire Beauty and the Beast soundtrack worked out (sadistic-ass band director and his days off....) can't remember the rest of it, though. BIC:*crouches by the back of the decimated remains of the DoW triple-wide and pulls out the tarp beneath it*

JoDee Montgomery: Twomoons> She frowns, she should of come down here months ago. "Thank you, Dr. Maier."

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *chuckles and tilts her head back to take a long chug of the stuff before responding* Eh...still in shock a little, gonna miss her somethin' fierce, but I'll go on...Jo an' Gage're right, it's not good to mourn overlong when Danni wouldn't want that. Hell, I can imagine her now..*imitates Danni's voice* Cut that out you guys, don't make me come over there...*probably what she's said a lot to Riley and Steel with them sparring* So we'll mourn an' celebrate at the same time. *smirks wearily* Kinda what I was taught to do anyway..that and when ya mourn, ya drink. *takes a swig* When ya celebrate, ya drink....yeah, I grew up with lushes.

Wields-Plastic-Death (FMT Omega): * halfway crawls out from under the FMT van in lupus, having watched the whole thing but kinda numbed by it all*

JoDee Montgomery: Twomoons> "I'll stop by to seeLilly in the next few days. Is there any word on the Shop?"

Cindy: *sits on the gound next to Cap*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): *Extends the jar to Wields.*

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *he laughs a bit* well that's a good philisophy.. and yeah that gage guy and jo made really good points.. guess you kinda have to be here for awhile to understand it all though.. *rolls his neck then tips it back downing another swallow from his mug* and i'm glad you're gonna be strong about this.. *smiles to her* though if you need someone.. even though you have your pack.. i'm here for you..

Wields-Plastic-Death (FMT Omega): *slowly pulls himself the rest of the way out, moving forward until he wedges between Cap and Cindy and plops down again, the fire of the pyre reflecting in his eyes*

'Twomoons' Maier (warderdude) :st: *Nods* It'll stay in business.

Wields-Plastic-Death (FMT Omega): *pokes his snout into the jar, lapping at the shine with a grateful whine*

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (better you than me): *softly hums a Greenday song to himself as he unfolds the tarp and starts working again. better off not getting close enough to listen to which*

JoDee Montgomery: Twomoon> She nods, "Good. anyway I need to get my daughter and I into a hotel. I will be around for a time.." she nods again and start toward the maze, quietly talking to her crying daughter.

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *nods at that, glad she's on the couch so she doesn't pass out on a junkpile later or something* Yeah, they're good people, surprised both made it....Gage ran off fer a bit, and Jo Dee...hell, no one's seen her here in ages, I'm impressed she could make it. But glad too, Danni would've been glad...*another long, slow swig* Heh, strong? With all that I've put up with, if I wasn't I'd be dead by now. That's the way Gnawers are...*rubs her forehead* I'm glad I was taught how to give a send off like that...though was hopin' I wouldn't have to use it. *smiles, shrugs* Hey, even with's nice to know someone else cares. I mean it, thanks.

Cindy: *wraps an arm around Wields*

Brad: *works on getting completely shit faced*

Wields-Plastic-Death (FMT Omega): *rests his head on his paws and remains silent*

Mitch: *sits quietly on a car hood and thinks*

Enters: *quietly watches the fire*

JoDee Montgomery: ( Jo's living up in Alaska with her mate. Max Vogel, if anyone remembers him.)

Riley ~Coat of Many Colors~: *working diligently at getting smashed, would probably go quicker if she didn't talk so much..she glances over to Mitch* Try some, even you'd get drunk....

Martin *Quickflash* Kurst (Fool,S-E-D): *He listenned to the bussle of sound and drank hard.*

Cap Rountree (Alpha, Foggy Mountain Throwdown): ((*G* I remember old Max... Hell, Might drag Jublain out to talk to Jo.))

JoDee Montgomery: ( Can do that if you want. *s*)

Jessie Wright ~Scarab~: *nods slowly and takes another swig as well* ya.. it's the way the walkers are too.. well the ones that aren't in the castles of glass that is.. i suppose.. still learning and stuff.. *glances over to her and smiles* but i do care about you.. ya know.. and it doesn't matter about surviving adapting and moving on... it's easier if you have someone else with you.. ya know..

Mitch: Riley>> No, thank you...

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (better you than me): *switches to humming "Shredding Skin" by Pantera, looking up periodically to keep an eye on things while everyone else gets shit-faced. continues working on the bike. occasionally pulls a pen out of a repair manual and writes something down*

Cassy Nix (S-E-D): *Re-enters from the maze, and angles for the S-E-D car, keeping her distance from the pyre for now, letting those who knew her best mourne in their own way. Upon seeing Jurg she switches directions and comes to hault, kneeling down by him as he works* Heya boss...need some help?

Jürg Beast-of-Garm (better you than me): OOC:Yep... Jurg remembers Vogel from their time at the auvirthi
