#1924105 A Sith and a Jedi walk into a Ruin

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 17 March 2019 - 06:06 AM

Though much of her time spent away from Dromund Kaas was in her capacity as Triumvir of Strength, today was a different story. For some time now, Darth Avacyn had been chasing down several leads from an old text she had found in Krest's old chamber in Bastion's Sith academy. She had 'inherited' the place after ending the life of her old master and after discovering the text she had been exploring all the locations it mentioned. It had started out as a series of explorations born from curiosity, but when she started finding old and valuable artifacts it turned into something more akin to an interplanetary treasure hunt. This time it brought her to the planet of Ahch-To and the temple she was now exploring.

 

The woman was dressed accordingly to the tropical climate of the planet, her outfit showing she wasn't expecting much in the way of hostility. Still, a pair lightsabers hung from her hips in case their usage did become necessary, but armed further she was not.

 

She had not made it far in yet, but the interior look seemed to already fill her with some sense of disappointment. Its design harkened back to the Jedi of old, though Avacyn did not let that keep her from going further in. She had to come from far to get here and there often were surprises to be found in old temples such as this. There was no reason to turn back quite yet. Not much light filtered through into the temple and so Avacyn took an unlit torch from one of the many pillars that held one, using her free hand to light it through the application of fire shaping.

 

Using the light that emanated from the torch, time was taken to take inventory of the main hall. In front of her was a large set of stairs that led to multiple chambers, which she decided would be the first area to explore. The redhead kept her eyes and senses peeled as she made her ascend and stepped into one of the chambers.

"Sorry, the surprise isn't as grand as last time," Kaalia responded as Ishana went to settle into the back of the chair she was sitting on, the redhead's arms still loosely coiled around her. Having her hands joined with her wife's was one of the things that made Kaalia truly feel at home- in those moments, she would be able to temporarily forget the hostility the galaxy was filled with and the eternal battle that was to be fought in order to protect all she and her loved ones had built. Tender moments were the little stars in the sky, surrounded by the black night sky that symbolized the harshness of life. Topping the way she revealed her pregnancy the previous time would've been quite the feat, but it was doubtful Ishana was too bothered by how she found out. The news itself was what mattered. "I do hope it doesn't ruin the moment," she jokingly added with a smirk.

 

Kaalia took a small step backwards to allow Ishana the room to stand up from the chair, casting another quick glance at the pregnancy test while it was being set down on the table. "It was your idea, miella," she remarked in response to the assertion that having another child was perhaps a bit crazy, though dismiss the claim entirely she did not. "But like you said, we'll be just fine. Hopefully you can survive another round of my hormones, though." She placed her hands behind Ishana's neck, her arms resting on the Balmorran's shoulders. How her wife had made it through the first pregnancy perplexed the redhead to this day.

 

The 'thank you' came as a bit of a surprise to Kaalia, but she did know how to respond. "And thank you. For helping me see there is more to life than just struggle, that there are things worth fighting for as well." The Kro Varian also leaned in for a kiss herself.

 

Kaalia's face then lit up as something crossed her mind, filling her with amusement. "I just realized," she suddenly said with a matching tone, switching the subject matter just that small bit as she continued. "We'll have the girls' reaction to look forward to as well. That should be fun."

#1915462 IRL Comes Around (Reduced Activity)

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 17 February 2019 - 05:10 PM

So in a twist I had not seen coming in a million years, life has been very kind to me. I'm feeling well mentally, all the bad chit actually feels like it's in the past now, uni continues to roll along and I recently ran into this person who is now my girlfriend. Mornings are still the devil, but that might just be the fact I don't sleep enough.

 

A side-effect of all this though is the fact my online presence has been reduced significantly. I expect things to settle down over the course of the next few weeks, but until then I don't think I'll be around to post much. This affects Kaalia and Nylea Apollodor for the most part. I'll be back in full force once my brain can concentrate on things again instead of thinking of my girlfriend constantly, until then my activity will be much like it has been in the past two weeks or so.

 

See you guys when the life I've gained slips through my fingers. /jk

Redid the Resol'nare tag so it matched the others in terms of colors- I didn't save the PSD file and couldn't 100% replicate the colors.

And your tag as well.

 

 

I would've made the tags earlier if time had permitted me, but I'm currently being kept busy by real life. I hope they are satisfactory anyway.

When Ishana finished feeding Xariah and told Kaalia she'd be back with the book, the redhead shot her a grateful nod. "I'll be in the bedroom, just going to put this one to bed as well," she explained as she carefully got up with Xarielle being held gently along her shoulder. Small hands gripped her shirt, causing the woman to chuckle a little. "Come on now, it's time for sleep. I'm not taking you with me downstairs." Before leaving the room herself she got the little one to burp and laid her down into the crib next to Xariah's. "Night night." Despite often not agreeing with her bedtime, it rarely took long for the toddler to fall asleep. Xariah was a bit more difficult though and had dragged Xarielle along with her nighttime antics on a few occasions now. Hopefully it wouldn't become a trend.

 

When Kaalia stepped out into the hallway, she did not do what she had said, however. Instead of crawling into her own bed and take it easy for the rest of the evening she slowly and quietly made her way downstairs, making sure Ishana wouldn't notice. While in the living room there wasn't any audial queue that the pregancy test had been found, but that didn't deter Kaalia from sneaking towards and into the dining room. Ishana sat on one of the chairs, her back turned towards her wife while she quietly moved up behind her. The motion that looked like Ishana was wiping away tears had Kaalia get a little emotional herself, but she quickly replaced it with a bit of a cheeky smile.

 

The brunette would then suddenly feel two arms wrapping around her while Kaalia leaned in. "You've been taking a while," she said as though she knew nothing of the pregnancy test in Ishana's hand, "so I went to check up on you. What's that you got there?" The grin on her face betrayed her intentionally thinly veiled false ignorance. "I wonder who left that there laying around in the dining room. A bit odd, if you ask me." At that point she couldn't hold herself back and a wide smile broke out onto her face. "Well, what does it say?"

#1909425 A meeting by gunfight...

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 02 February 2019 - 07:03 PM

The political answer is what Er'in gave. By now, Avacyn had long gotten used to being spoken to with a filter created by caution and this definitely wasn't the first time some maneuvering was required to get the person to reveal the full picture. That didn't mean what she already said was of no value, however. She wasn't necessarily wrong on any of the points she made and it showed she at least had given some thought into the workings of the Sith Empire, even if it wasn't much more than an outsider's perspective. Perhaps she was privy to seeing how it looked like from the inside.

 

When Er'in finished with her answer the two would walk through the entrance and outside. There wasn't much Avacyn was able to add in regards to Darth Metus as she had never met him in person, but his public image lined up with what the brunette said about him. Still, he remained a man to be respected for his capabilities and achievements.

 

"Debates concerning the Sith Code are always interesting," the woman mused as her gaze aimed at the shuttle that awaited them. "Over there," she said before getting back on topic. "For every Sith, there's a different interpretation, even if only slightly different sometimes. I will agree with you though, as far as I am able to with the limited knowledge I have about Darth Metus. He doesn't seem to pay much regard to the Code." The boarding ramp of the shuttle was already lowered as the woman from the holocalls awaited her superior. "I will come back to the topic of the Sith Empire in my quarters," she said to Er'in as she made her way on board.

 

"Miyavi," Avacyn called out, attaching a name to the woman who had awaited the arrival of Er'in and herself, "I assume our guest can get herself cleaned up while we return?"

 

"Of course, milady." Miyavi turned towards Er'in and bowed in greeting. "Should I have your current attire washed for immediate use, or will a change of clothes suffice?"

#1907125 Trial of Strength

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 27 January 2019 - 06:45 PM

With ragged breaths Avacyn turned her body towards Mythos again and couldn't help but let her lips curl in a slight but twisted smirk, even through the regret from expending a bit too much energy than she could afford at this stage by kipping up. She dropped down to a knee from fatigue as she looked through the strands of crimson hair that hung in front of her face, another rush of the Dark side washing over her at the sight of Mythos' arm. There was no time to get cocky until a winner was declared, but with her opponent having only one arm left this was very much her fight to lose. Now, she had to finish it.

 

Avacyn's lightsaber had dropped to the ground while escaping from Mythos' clutches and so she called upon the Force to return it to her hand while she calmly got back up to both of her feet, then brushed her hair backwards to get it out of the way. She watched on in surprise, however as her opponent savagely sipped off his own destroyed arm without even the slightest flinch, instead letting out a roar to show he wasn't quite done yet. Her blade reactivated and pushing through the fatigue and agony that wreaked havoc on her entire body she retook her stance, more than willing to make him stay down if he gave her no other choice. "I will confess," the woman spoke out inbetween her breaths, "that my limits have been pushed this day." Even though the fight wasn't over, there had been multiple moments where she stood millimeters away from defeat, or even death. She was equally close to chalking the outcome of those moments up to luck.

 

And then Mythos seemingly split in four.

 

Three of them she saw in front of the woman, but it was the fourth that revealed himself to stand right behind her that truly put her on high alert. She had to determine which of the four was truly him before he had the chance to take advantage and there was only one method that came to her in the spur of the moment. In that split second she stomped a foot onto the ground, her mind focused through the Force and onto the ground right beneath the three doppelgangers as well as the real Mythos and herself. Calling upon her earth shaping she caused pillars to shoot up out of the ground underneath. The clones weren't real, so perhaps they would not react to the physical world. At the same time Avacyn would not gift any free elevated position to her opponent, as she herself stood on one of the pillars as well.

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 26 January 2019 - 08:30 PM

Kaalia looked down towards the child in her arms, her child, and like every time she looked at either of the twins she was reminded of how special they were to her. It had taken some time to get used to the fact she was a mother, but even after that had worn off it didn't make either of her daughters any less wondeful. Even through the sleepless nights, the stress, and the headaches. There was plenty of all of those things. No longer did she just want to create a safe home for Ishana and herself, she wanted to make sure her children had a safe and happy home as well and give them childhood she never got to have. Both for the twins, and the one on the way. Kaalia hoped she was doing it right.

 

"Do you want your bottle? Yes, you do," she told Xarielle without waiting for much of an answer. The way the toddler had been looking at Xariah's bottle had been enough of an indication. After having walked over to the warmer, Kaalia took out the bottle and held it against her skin to make sure it wasn't too hot. She concluded it was the right temperature and went to take a seat in the other rocking chair. With Xarielle nestled into her lap she gave her the bottle. A little moment of peace and quiet for as long as the twins were both occupied.

 

"Oh, miella," Kaalia then said, as though she had just remembered something, "could you do something for me once these two are finally sleeping? I'm still a bit wrecked from giving all those guest lectures today and I want to crawl into bed with the book I've been reading." While talking, she slowly rocked back and forth, keeping her eyes on Xarielle. "But I'm a bit too lazy to go back downstairs to grab it, could you get it for me once this is done? It's on the dining table, I'm pretty sure."

My apologies for taking as long as I have. This week was probably single busiest week of my life, so I didn't have much in the way of free time. I hope the tags are to your liking, though.

 

 

As forDarth Vyrassu , I am going to turn down your request and any you may make in the foreseeable future. Your behavior in recent times has very much rubbed me the wrong way and as such I have no desire to put in time and effort to make rank tags for you. Once you clean up your act I will gladly honor your requests again, but until then I will ask you to refrain from putting in any more requests.

 

I am also extending this to any rank tags concerning TJE, although individual members of the faction are welcome to put in requests for tags not related to TJE.




#1903502 A Growing Family

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 18 January 2019 - 01:49 PM

It made no sense to be this nervous. This hadn't been the first time and if it was up to Ishana alone far from the last, but Kaalia had already come out of the bathroom and made her way to the living area without being able to muster the courage needed to look at the pregnancy test she clutched in her left hand. Her heart was racing, her mind shot from one place to another and she began pacing nervously, but she was glad that at the very least her wife was in upstairs with Xariah and Xarielle instead of here seeing her have a near-nervous breakdown. The redhead sighed heavily as she crashed down onto her usual spot of the couch, then nodded to nothing in particular to instill some level of confidence in herself.

 

Kaalia, deep down, already knew the test result. She felt it in the Force and it had never lied to her before. A small spark of a presence went wherever she did, it small and weak but the bond she felt with it was incredibly powerful. This really was no more than a confirmation of something she already knew, yet it was also something more. This was Ishana's way of knowing.

 

With the test still in her clutched fist she held it in front of her, the result obscured by the fingers that wrapped around it. Another sigh. "Fine. Let's just do it," she said to herself as her fist slowly opened up. What she saw made her heart skip a beat. Two lines. Positive. Although it wasn't truly a surprise, the feeling of shock that would quickly turn into excitement washed over her all the same. An uncontrollable smile took hold of her as she let out a small sequence of happy noises that nobody was ever going to know about. The first thing that came to mind was rushing upstairs to show Ishana, but she stopped herself after shooting back up onto her feet. One look at the small white stick later the woman had devised a plan.

 

 

 

With the pregnancy test no longer on her person, Kaalia made her way up the stairs and followed the sound to get to where her wife and daughters were. The three most important people in her life, she would often call them, and nothing could have been more true. And soon another would join them. She slowly opened the door to make sure she wasn't a sudden interruption and with a soft smile she walked over towards Ishana to give her a kiss before picking up Xarielle and holding her in her arms. "What are we up to here? Ready for sleep?" Out of the two mothers Kaalia was the one who was more strict about bedtimes, but she tended to be the more worrying one in general.

#1901306 A Mirror to the Past

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 13 January 2019 - 07:35 PM

Kaalia left the question whether Samka's statement was a threat or not up in the air, deciding that ultimately it didn't make much of a difference. It wouldn't affect the way she approached the topic of her own past and she knew better than to do anything to spark the ire of a nation that was allied to her own. She didn't feel intimidated in the way she would have in the past, either- she was a far cry from the woman she was the last time the two had met after all. She wouldn't have been where she was now otherwise.

 

Samka's drink of choice didn't come to her surprise, though. It was very fitting.

 

Resisting the urge to snicker at the Ren's first comment after sitting down, the temptation mostly caused by the face she made, Kaalia instead nodded as Samka noted her approval of the drink she had chosen for herself. "I have to admit that I'm quite the fan of it too," she said in response, "I have found it is particularly good in cocktails too. But considering what you mentioned about alcohol before I doubt that is of much interest to you." Drinks of that kind were kept to special occasions, but she allowed herself to dabble in such pleasures from time to time. "Feel free to take the bottle with you when you go, consider it a small thank you for coming."

 

The drink was only a temporary distraction from the topic they were discussing though and when Samka went back on-topic, at first she answered the question Kaalia had asked in a way that the redhead could have imagined beforehand. An assessment of what the situation was back then in a very rational way, but with the small flair in a side-eye and a smile afterwards that served as a reminder of what Samka was like. Kaalia did not see herself having been anyone worth the bother back then, but was willing to concede that opinions often differed. And, now that she was considering the fact she had quite rapidly risen up the ranks of the Sith Brotherhood shortly after joining their numbers, it became easier to see that there was some merit to that claim. Kaalia's mouth opened slightly as she was about to share those thoughts, but stopped when the other woman continued.

 

What followed was, in contrast to the previous reasons Samka had given, something that came very much unexpectedly.

 

The Sith lady listened while some of her surprise broke through onto her facial features, her mind going back to Mustafar and replaying it in flashes. A side of Samka she realized she had seen but never truly recognized before now stared her right in the face, even if it was only visible in the most minute of details within those memories. She wasn't quite stunned silent, but it wasn't that far off. Although with the perspective she had now she had no wish to return to that life, but as nostalgia could pierce through the coldest hearts, it hit Kaalia with quite some force. The battles fought alongside her fellow Ren, the taste of victory- within that small bubble she lived in back then, those were some of the memories she could have still cherished had things gone differently.

 

And then Samka snapped the woman out of her silence with her final remark, which caused her to chuckle for a short moment. Although not yet bringing it to her lips, she did wrap a hand around her glass. "After her short but, well, impactful visit to the wedding, I would think she wouldn't have gotten too upset about it," Kaalia replied, before taking a sip of her drink and putting the glass back down. Ara had left behind a set of rings that burdened Kaalia and Ishana with a curse that was to slowly drive the couple apart, but today they were still together while the curse was long gone.

 

"But, yes." Her tone turned to something much more serious. "I will never forget Mustafar again. It was quite the thing we all did." She remembered the rush of battle, the euphoric rush at the right of the Alliance retreating, things that now had an odd aftertaste. It wasn't an outright foul one, but it didn't add anything positive either. "That was when I, and I couldn't have been the only one, realized we weren't the lesser party in the conflict."

 

"I," the woman fell silent for a short moment, looking for the words she was trying to say. "I would be lying though if I said I wasn't surprised by your answer. It puts some things in perspective." She looked thoughtful, thinking about the fact that perhaps there still were missing pieces of the puzzle of her past out there. Ones that had never been put in place before. "Despite the fact that I couldn't bring myself to commit my entire being to the Ren as it was desired of me, know that I didn't fight alongside you for purely selfish reasons. Even if it was for other people such as Ara, and you too. You know what needs to be done, I have always respected that."

#1898645 Playing With The Big Boys Now | TSE Invasion of TJE's Csilla Hex

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 07 January 2019 - 05:09 PM

Csilla_Invasion_locations_Orbit.png

Objective: Maim. Burn. Destroy.

Location: Csilla, in orbit -> landing

Allies: TSE - Khonsu Amon | Erin Tenel (Will wreck shop in your honor o7)

Enemies: TJE

Equipment: In signature

 

 

The words that spilled from Er'in's mouth returned Avacyn's mind to reality in a split second, realizing that the wait was over. The corruption in her eyes burned brighter than before, every fiber in her body was prepared for the battle that was upon her. Within the Dark side she had found power and today it would grow even further, while the weak would meet their end at her hand. Little time was to be wasted, but she did find it only proper to address Er'in one more time before departing.

 

"You have my thanks. Then, this is where we part for now. Until we meet again."

 

With a sharp nod she turned to face the exit of the chamber and began to make her way towards the hangar, where the pilot of her personal shuttle already awaited her arrival, among those who piloted the vessels that would take with them the other Sith warriors that accompanied her. Not long after making her way on board the ship shot through space and towards Csilla's surface, protected by Er'in's sorcerous power. Inside the ship itself, Avacyn sat in her meditation chamber with her legs crossed and her eyes closed, seemingly in a state of calm, yet those strong in the Force could see the whirlwind that was her presence. The ghostly illusion that wrapped around her was fed by the darkened strength that hung all around her, becoming even more difficult to see through. Yet still, those who the woman considered as an ally would only see who she really was.

 

"Beginning landing sequence," the pilot called out, notifying Avacyn that the wait was now over. She rose to her feet, left the chamber, and stood ready at the boarding ramp as the shuttles landed, their boarding ramps all beginning to lower to reveal the ones who were to annihilate all in their path.




#1898368 Trial of Strength

Posted by Kaalia Pavanos on 06 January 2019 - 04:59 PM

The amulet around Avacyn's neck sent waves of incredible agony through her entire body as she let the Force flow through her, but her mind somehow only became sharper. Instead of succumbing to it the pain was embraced, fuelling her connection to the Dark side and allowing her to draw even deeper from it. Her aura exuded an intensity that was overwhelming to those who were less powerful in the Force and with it came heightened senses, allowing her the time to react as Mythos pulled her towards him in an attempt to headbutt her. Still, she needed to free herself from the hand that wrapped around her neck and robbed her of the oxygen she needed and so her next course of action was clear. Use the momentum of the pull in her favor.

 

Though Mythos was physically much more imposing than Avacyn herself, that did not mean he couldn't be taken off his feet. While the distance between the two was rapidly closing the woman's feet left the ground before she kicked them forwards, aiming for his lower leg, the aim being that he would lose his balance and she could free herself from his clutches. She too needed to create distance so to put an end to a situation where physical strength had the upper hand and a way could be found to let speed and precision reign once more.

 

Would this be successful, she would roll away from Mythos the moment she hit the ground then kip back up onto her feet, letting herself take a number of deep breaths now that her windpipe was no longer being squeezed down upon.

 

Yet throughout this all, the question that Avacyn was asked was met by nothing but silence on her end. She saw no reason to say any more than she already had, so Mythos would be left to wonder whether what he questioned was true or not.

 

Mythos
