*:･ﾟ✧ This felt wrong, very wrong. Órfhlaith had been a Veiler almost a year now, just over two weeks until in fact. And it felt wrong. Between Ver, Riptide, Calina and Ulla, Órfhlaith had no clue how she'd be able to live up to such great leaders, even if Ulla's reign was so short, the doe had proved herself a great leader during that time and before tenfold. Mystletainn she had no doubt about, he was determined, intelligent and a natural born leader from what Órfhlaith had seen of him; she was just an ex-herd horse with good medical skills that happened to have been in Shadow Veil for a relatively long time enough to be alongside Mystletainn for highest rank at the time of Ulla stepping down.
To say she felt inadequate would be an understatement, but it wasn't about her, it wasn't about her and Mystletainn. This was about Calina, Ulla, and Shadow Veil as a whole. At least the ceasefire with the Sanguine Ruins was holding up, to think not long ago she was worried about being a Midnightbringer, she thanked whatever deity existed that Mystletainn was stepping up as well. She suspected she would be taking many cues from him, that he would turn out the better leader, but for now she had to try and take up the mantle without making a fool of herself.
She felt like her thoughts were acting like a broken record by this point, but as she stepped up to the leaders rock to start their announcement, all she could think about was how this felt wrong. "Veilers! Please gather for an announcement!" Saying those words were a lot different to hearing them she'd decided. Seeing the fire in the meeting room lit again for the colder seasons looked different from this angle, the sight of Veilers coming to gather towards her looked weird. Sorry Mystletainn, but she felt relieved that next announcement was his to make.
"Ulla has, stepped down from the Shaderunner role." She paused to let the information process. "And with Calina still sick, and the Shaderunner poisition void, Mystletainn and a' have, stepped up as Shadowkeepers together." Shadow Veil has changed so much and Órfhlaith didn't like it, it was times like this that she missed the herd. "We understand that this has been a stressful time for all with the Ruins, and quick turnover of leadership, so once again, Mystletainn and a' have decided to suspend any warnings, promotions or demotions until the next meeting, we have a few gaps in our positions so we'll be lookin' out to fill 'em. Regardin' the Ruins, the ceasefire has t'ankfully held, however, a' still advise everyone to be careful, especially if yer near the border; a' know that many of us have our personal issues with the Ruins, myself included. But currently a' don't want any conflict, especially while we're in such a period of change, there will be a time for justice, but it's not now." Now to address the elephant in the room. "A' understand that Calina and Ulla have left large shoes for us to fill, and a' want to make sure that everyone feels safe and comfortable as we try to live up to them, so a' want to say that if any of ye would like to talk or have any questions my den is always open. This meetin' is dismissed unless Mystletainn has somet'in to add." The equine looked for her co-leader to see if he had anything to add. She hoped any other meetings she'd have to hold would come easier.
-Due to the various circumstances any rank changes and warnings have been postponed until next meeting. Sorry! However we will be looking for characters to fill the various gaps in ranks for the next meeting we hope!
-Peggy has decided to step down with Ulla and so me and ylisse have stepped up with Órf and Mystletainn as co-leaders
-Everyone IC has been asked to be wary around the Ruins' borders despite the ceasefire holding
-I'm afraid this meeting is quite short in terms of content, this is my first time hosting any kind of meeting or announcement so I'm just asking y'all to bear with me while i try and find my bearings!
-If any of you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to dm me either on here or on discord! I'm always open to talk!
we had dreams and songs to sing
