The Ruins had kept her tied up, dropping something so major on all of them that would impact the entirety of their clan was something that she couldn’t just push aside to return to the Pines so she’d stayed and argued her piece only to get nothing so for out of it. The man didn’t have any sense of intelligence or understanding and she’d grown tired of waiting around the Ruins camp waiting for shit to hit the fan. It didn’t yet but she worried as she stood upon the meeting stone that something would occur in those sands while she was gone and not capable of protecting her kids. She could only hope for the best she had been slacking here and the Veil had children to protect as well and so much on the rise and sadly she couldn’t split herself in two.
She waits until the bonfires on either side of the meeting stone are lit before she raises her head to the sky and lets out her ghastly howl. She looked different than she had in the last meeting far more injured and out of it but she didn’t want to hear any of their questions or concerns. She’d be just fine she could survive mostly anything at this point and this was just another drop in the bucket. ”Veilers! Gather for another weekly meeting!” she barks as soon as her howl finished its tune.
They’d amassed in numbers over the week, and while they weren’t the superpower they’d used to be she was happy to see things improving even if some things never would. ”Firstly as always I’d like to welcome all those new faces in the crowd, so many of you have joined recently and I hope you all find a home within in our ranks! With that said welcome to Twitch Starscream MIAMIPAW ESME! candypaw valorpaw Beatrice Michaelis VALENTINE. and lastly ANIMA; ” a sizable bunch indeed and she was glad to see both old and new faces within that bunch. She looked forward to working besides them and having Iza- Annie besides them when they needed warriors more than ever was a blessing in itself.
”We also have a few returning members of the Veil abbi . our former Shadowkeeper, rabbit !! and of course my daughter @" midi " it’s good to have you back with us” she smiles warmly this time not having to force it whatsoever. Despite everything that changed it was relieving to have somethings come back to be constants in her life once again. ” ~ADARA~ has also returned home but I think a suitable punishment for worrying us all is putting her on janitorial duty for a week taking care of the dens and ruins. You’ll keep your rank and standing but Adara please don’t run away ever again” she just might strangle the girl if she did, she hated losing people and couldn’t stand how common it was and still would be. ”But that doesn’t mean I want to stop sending out search parties for Mercy and now Vanillapaw, he went missing this morning and I doubt he got far at all with luck he’ll likely just be hiding out in the castle” her voice forces itself to stay in its monotone trying its best to keep its cool but the harsh rising and falling of her chest and the hardly seen wounds on her throat tell exactly what she doesn’t say. Something happened and she was lying for his own good.
”As for promotions... Orfhlaith Faelan its about time you stepped up as Darkseeker and I’m thinking of graduating you soon to a full time spiritcaller but of course I’ll need to test you before then! Along with her I’d like EWAN and shiningpaw. to step up as Nightwatchers and for candypaw if she chooses I’d like for her to step up as a Duskguard” her choices were a handful and half apprentices but she’s confident in them and their skills rather they be built for healing, politics or fighting. ”Now demotions STRINGTHEORY. , DIARMUID. are demoted for inactivity and... LITTLEPAW. is demoted as well, I don’t think she’ll be returning to the Veil for sometime” she hopes she’s wrong hopes that the girl would change her mind but it would never happen would it? Especially with what she did to Johnny. ”Of course I may be wrong and like both of them she can earn her position again with a bit of work” she forces a grin before her feelings could show themselves in an unbidden revelation.
”No titles for this week but I’ll be keeping an eye out so work hard this week - but on the topic of titles I’m going to allow for any Veiler who wants an Ascension quest to receive one! These are tailored just for you and are very personal but I warn you that it’s best to prepare yourself for them and make sure you are ready to take on the responsibility of whatever happens out there before you set out! If you succeed in your quest like Junepaw you will receive a ring to commemorate your success as well as the title of Blackheart to show the entire clan what you’ve done” she nods her head, her own quest still affected her had brought apart a change in her vision she wished she could scrub out. Those whispers those sights and constant reminders it was a nightmare and she hoped no one would ever come home from a quest like that. ”I’m hoping to return the Veil to its former self, I’d like to celebrate the traditions and practices that I was introduced to here when I was new” she states truthful afterwards.
”But I would also like to introduce something new to the clan something that was incredibly important to the Rogues which merged with us not long ago” she starts looking over the crowd searching for the young faces among them ”The Rogues once made it a habit while I lived there to have individual mentors for each apprentice rather than letting the apprentices get raised by the entire village like we do here” she never thought the kids here got enough training one on one, always felt they were behind even kids like Junepaw could’ve been so much more if their talent was honed by a mentor who knew what they were doing and formed a connection with them. ”From now on I'm making it a requirement for all members over six months and below 12 to be assigned a mentor one who will be responsible for teaching them everything they know. I’m hoping this will make the Veil stronger and give our youngest members a fighting chance with the Brigade on our ass and the Exiles always on the rise” she barks, she misses her former apprentices dearly wishes she still had them to train and care for but even her most recent; Littlepaw had escaped her. She didn’t know if she wanted to take on another with that wound still being so fresh.
Mentors will be chosen sometime this week before we head out on our raid against the Brigade so keep your eyes and ears open and if you want to volunteer before that time comes please Stay and talk to me after the meeting is over” there was so many apprentices to take into consideration, making decisions for all of them would be an utter pain in her ass.
”with all that said meeting dismissed!”
