September 4th, 2023 After Tinúviel collapsed at the Wolfbron Bluff's challenge, she was unable to make it back to the Lagoon to take up her leadership position again and the pride disbands. Diomedeidae & Cirilla fight for the pride.

August 28th, 2023 Both Amara and Morrigan keep their prides. Lachesis doesn't show to defend the Brook and Renfri takes over. The Wolfbron Bluffs challenge seems to be setting off fireworks already.

August 15th, 2023 The two longest standing female leaders are both fighting for their prides once again. Anthonius challenges Amara for the Bluffs. Amaroq challenges Morrigan for the Summit. A new leader faces his first challenge as Renfri challenges Lachesis for the Brook. Did anyone think that peace was something the island was able to have?

August 1st, 2023 Conflict, drama, love, and loss - the lands are never free from any of it for more than a fleeting moment. As the summer months wane on and the season nears its end, there is no telling what is coming next upon the horizon.

June 19th, 2023 With the rains leaving and spring upon the island, things are heating up among the lions. Bruno seeks to unseat his father in the Mire. Helah looks to dethrone Scorpius in the Oasis and keep the fire between the Bluffs and the Oasis alive. The Plains have raided the Brook and allies on both sides showed up to help.

May 23rd, 2023 All is fair in love and war - moments of chaos and peace lull in a cyclical nature across the lands of Amaryllis, though most are wise enough to know that the quiet never lasts quite long enough.

April 20th, 2023 Alexander manages to win the Hollows and Tiamat keeps the Lagoon. Vághan challenges Amara for the Bluffs but Amara is able to hold off another challenger and keeps the Bluffs. The Cove was hit by a storm that washed away it's leader leaving the lands open to be claimed by Nephthys and Keligan who both are attached to the land. Cirilla attempts to take the Oasis from Scorpius who seems driven to keep the land.

April 5th, 2023 It doesn't take long for the dust to kick up as the Hollows is challenged for by Alexander once again and the Lagoon is challenged for by Fernweh.

March 31st, 2023 As wars and challenges continue to break out across the lands, Amaryllis is certainly keeping up with its turbulent reputation. One can only hope that the dust will settle soon enough - for everyone's sake.

March 10th, 2023 The turbulance of the prides never ceases for very long, as a violent landslide forces the members of Firnen Rainforest to evacuate and disband. Who will step up for the throne this time around?

March 1st, 2023 While Gauthier manages to retain control of Caladan Cove, Lorien Plains' fate is not so simple. With Aeistrios overthrowing Violarum and taking the pride's throne, how will things unravel from here?

February 20th, 2023 Even though the last batch of pride challenges did not succeed in shifting most of the political tides in Amaryllis, it did not deter ambitious souls from seeking out thrones of their own. The fates of both Lorien Plains and Caladan Cove now hang in the balance, stirring further unrest as a result.

January 25th, 2023 It seems that the island wasn't ready for new leaders to take over right away as Vermier keeps ahold of the Hollows and Cassandra keeps the Brook in the family. The steadiness doesn't last long as a blistering sand storm rolls through the Oasis, leaving it empty until Ronin and Scorpius take up battle to see who will claim the lands.

January 16th, 2023 After battling for their prides, all current leaders remain with their crowns. Amara successfully wins a challenge for the Bluffs for the third time. Morrigan wins her first battle after a year of leading the Summit, the relations between the Mire and Summit seem to have splintered as war breaks out. Ryker battles a familiar face in Leander for the Oasis and manages to keep his crown and denies a family the ability to get back to it. Alexander battles Vermier for the Hollows, a move that causes Ryker to drop his attachements to Alexander's family.

January 9th, 2023 After peace seemed to settle over the island the warm air and lifting of the rains brings out the challenges for prides. The Lagoon gains new leaders. The Oasis leader, Ryker fights to keep his pride from Leander. Amara, the oldest leader in the island once again fights to keep the Bluffs, this time against Arkyn. While Cassandra fights against Aeistrios to keep the Brook in the paws of family and friends.

December 19th, 2022 In a bold move, Amara of Wolfbron Bluffs has taken King Alizabeth prisoner after she was attacked by some mammoths. This has left Scilla Lagoon empty of it's leader once again.

December 16th, 2022 Spring works it's way to the island and with the coming of warmer weather it seems that the island has calmed and for the moment allowed things to settle.

November 29th, 2022 The winter season has proven to be brutal and unforgiving as the weather pushes the lions of Scilla Lagoon from their home, once again leaving the pride vulnerable for claiming. This time, Ronin is looking for the opportunity to rule, though he is quickly countered by Alizabeth, who is hoping to reclaim what was once her's.

November 11th, 2022 After Alizabeth left the Lagoon to find her cub and ended up falling ill, the pride has found itself at the center of another challenge and war. Prometheus and Recluse fought to see who would lead Scilla Lagoon, with Recluse reigning victorious, while the lions of Wolfbron Bluffs extend their reach with Vermier as the new High Sovereign of Obsidian Hollows. With so many changes to the leaders of Amaryllis, what is ahead for the island?

November 8th, 2022 "When will this end?" you may ask yourself as you are thrust in between worlds once more. This time, however, you are not simply floating in the nothingness or above the land you call home. No. It is snippets of visions that pay now before you as if you're there. As if it isn't just a memory of a time long gone. Their piercing eyes gaze at you. You are taken aback out of fear or maybe awe. Somehow you know deep within your heart the identity of this loner: Kivuli. When you awake, the memory of the fury in their gaze remains burned within your mind.

October 22nd, 2022 An earthquake has resulted in parts of Obsidian Hollow to fall in, trapping Roan in the process as he sought to evacuate the others. In the aftermath, Vermier and Revna waste no time moving in to make their claim for the newly vacant territory.

October 17th, 2022 It is happening again - you are thrust into this in-between of worlds, the tendrils of mist swirling before you like hungry serpents. You can almost feel them tickle your sides and wrap around your ankles -- "I am Kivuli," the strange chorus of voices responds firmly, their fury brimming at the tip of their words. It is powerful and intense, like a titanous wave about to crash and leave everything in ruin. "... and I will take back what is mine." What is coming for the island? Will there be enough support to keep Maua as the stronger deity or will Kivuli take over?

October 8th, 2022 A rumble is felt on the eastern side of the island, prompting violent waves to crash into the lands of Caladan Cove and driving out the lions that once lived there. Days pass before the ocean calms and settles once again, but the lions that were once there are now gone, and the pridelands are open for a new ruler.

October 7th, 2022 Alizabeth remains the leader of Scilla Lagoon whilst Seneca loses his battle to Ryker for Andal Oasis. Will the outcome of these battles shape how the island works together in the coming days? With new leaders also taking over Lorien Plains (Ghyslaine) and Vermeda Brook (Cassandra), things could be on edge once again.

October 1st, 2022 Something takes hold of those living on the island - - shared vision or dream that seems to shake the core of what they have come to know. Accompanied with a strange voice within their minds, those who came to Amaryllis long ago, guided by Maua's voice, will feel a pagne of familiarity. Only this time, the voice is different and chilling. What is coming?

ooc: this is super duper backdated to when Bee was still living in SL under Magnus. i'm the worst at replying and this took way longer to finish than it should have.

This content might touch on topics that are sensitive or triggering for some readers. Trigger Warning for mentions of drowning

Amara walked along the edge of the badlands without much thought. Her sides swelled and she felt the need to move far more than normal. Her mind was spinning as she was struggling to find a way to get Cassine back and the turmoil of being away from her. The sun started to set over the lands and she stopped to watch it for a long moment before spotting a zebra calf that was alone. Food was always good. The soon to be mother moved quickly toward her prey that took off when it spotted her. Oh goody, a chase!

She doesn't often wander so far from home, but Beelzebub is shaken from the events in the Lagoon, and wishes for nothing more than a few days as far away from the ocean as she can get. The desert seems a perfect alternative; it is a different kind of sea, one of sand and silence -- peaceful, where the waves are not. Her paws leave soft impressions behind as she slips along the cracked earth, ears twisting forward when she spots a flurry of dust and dirt kicking up ahead of her. Intrigued, she follows after the movement at an easy lope, much too far behind to partake in the chase, though the familiar scent of Amara's trail is enough to prompt her onward. She chuffs softly as she nears, anticipating that the former queen will have either won or lost her prey by the time she gets there.

Amara's skilled legs carry her across the land as she cuts around with her eyes locked on her prey. Her desire to eat was almost nonstop now and the lack of a working pride was an issue. It took a moment longer than normal but finally, she got close enough and her claws grabbed the soft flesh of the calf and in a fury of dust, she wins. She pants harshly as she looks around, she had heard a call at the end of the hunt but couldn't have looked before. Spotting Bee she gave the yearling a welcoming nod before she settled in to eat. The calf wouldn't give much and with Bee arriving Amara wouldn't eat all of it. She would save some for Bee to eat once she was done.

When the dust settles, Amara is there, victorious over her unfortunate meal and beckoning the Bezra nearer. She approaches at a trot, her long legs carrying her easily over the warm, cracked earth. Of all the faces she would have wanted to see today, this one perhaps tops her list. "Hey," she greets softly once she's within range, reclining on the opposite side of the felled carcass from Amara, her ears flicking towards the ebon lioness. She doesn't entirely know what to say, but all she does know is that she's happier in the presence of those she knows and trusts; she wants desperately for the turmoil to cease, and for them to all be under one roof again. The Lagoon doesn't feel like home anymore.

Amara's gaze flicks toward Bee as she arrives and greets her but doesn't focus much on her until she had eaten a fair majority of the calf. She likely could have finished all of it on her own but she pulled away. She shifted into a somewhat comfortable seated position and started to groom the mess her meal had made from her coat. "You can finish it if you would like." She offered the younger lioness. It didn't seem like she was losing weight under the new leader but still, it didn't hurt to eat a little extra when things were so uncertain. Her golden gaze studied Bee for a moment, there was a weight hanging over her and Amara could tell. The yearling had been through a lot just in the time Amara had known her and there was no doubt that it was a hard way to shape the beginning of a life. She knew that all too well. Still, she could only guess at what it was until Bee decided to share. Amara decided to go in a different direction with the start of things. Taking a hard turn toward something that she found mildly amusing. "I was made aware that I should thank you. So thank you." She let the statement hang. While she was talking about Bee's talk with Keir Amara wanted to see what Bee took it as. What was her mind looking for?

For a while, there is only the sound of meat ripping and tearing, the crunch of bone filling the quiet. Bee is happy enough to oblige the offer; she had learned long ago to never turn down a meal. One could never know when the next one might come, if it comes at all. Her ears swivel towards Amara at the casual statement she lays between them and her skull lifts away from the carcass, tongue swiping blood away from her muzzle. Her brows furrow in uncertainty as the yearling peers at her company, both confused and intrigued. "For what?" she queries, her claws kneading into the dirt. She is so used to others being mad at her now, judging her -- and whilst she doesn't necessarily expect those things from Amara, the gratitude is unexpected, and in her mind, unwarranted.

The black lioness watched her eat before her an answer was given though not one that Amara had been hoping for. Bee hadn't fallen into her little trap to figure out what all Bee may feel she should be thanked for. Amara shifted her weight as she stopped her grooming to focus on Bee a little more. "Kieran." She flicked her ears and tilted her head slightly. "He said you suggested he bring me a gift." Granted a lion's leg likely wasn't what she had in mind but it was better than flowers. Her golden gaze laid heavy on Bee as she thought things over. "How are you fairing?"

Kieran, she says, prompting an arch of the girl's brow. She snorts, actually expressing humor at the explanation, which is an incredibly rare event in itself. She hadn't thought so much of the interaction, and had frankly all but forgotten it in her anger at the Dieudonne for his refusal to teach her. "Yeah, I did," she admits with a bemused huff, her tail sweeping across the sand. "Must've been something good," the yearling mentions, though she doesn't much care one way or the other if Amara reveals that secret. The following question sobers the amusement from her face, and she twists an ear back. "I dunno. Okay I guess," she answers awkwardly, shifting uncomfortably in her spot. "I-- they have this...ritual." She purses her lips, and her heart begins to pound as if she's watching it all firsthand all over again. "He struck his children and sent them into the sea. Some trial of strength and faith." The concept is far from foreign to her, and whilst she's never told Amara much about her spirituality, she's never made it a secret, either. This event, however, had been far more cruel than anything she had ever learned. "Some of them almost died. And they were all...different." Myrkvi couldn't remember what had happened to him, one of the girls had lost an eye, the white one is crippled... She wonders -- is this the penance owed from their god for giving them the sea? What a cruel twist of fate. Her mismatched gaze settles heavily upon Amara's face, and it's evident that the event has rattled Bee and driven her to these far reaches to clear her head.

Amara simply nodded, unwilling to say what it was. While she had a fair amount of faith in the yearling, there were elements of her life that weren't up for sharing and that was one of them. Even though it had caught her off guard because she was clueless that anyone could have any feelings toward her it had been enough to get her to pay attention and see everything he had done for her. Bee's change in demeanor didn't go unnoticed and Amara's ears flicked forward to pay closer attention to what she was going to say. Anything that could be used against them would be useful. She wasn't ready for what she was told though. Surprise rolled over her features as she listened. It was clear that it had bothered Bee and Amara was concerned that it seemed that Magnus didn't seem to have tried to hide it from those who were not family. "I am sorry you had to see that. Did he make you watch it?" Maybe it was some show of power toward the others? Would he try to do the same to them? Concern came with her question, "Are you worried he will do the same to you? Your siblings? Cassine?" Amara's weight shifted as she started to think about how she would be able to get the group out. She still wasn't ready to fight that brute again but if she needed to, she would need to find a way to fight once for all of them.

She can't make heads or tails of her feelings about Magnus; on some levels, she understands him, understands the drive of his god and doing anything in his name. But on the other paw -- she can't imagine her own father ever following such a tradition, and she wishes desperately that he was here for her to talk to about it. Her lips purse and she shakes her head at Amara's first question. "I wasn't supposed to be there," she admits with something of a shrug; she doubts that it will come as a surprise to the black lioness. She's always had a propensity for following her curiosities, and her desire to learn more about the lions who had taken her home had been enough to drive her to poke her nose where it didn't belong. "No," she reassures her former queen, meeting her gaze with a certainty on that front. Their ritual is only meant for family, and she very much doubts they have any interest in baptizing anyone else. "It's why they wanted the Lagoon. Their god dwells in the ocean. Or he is the ocean. I can't tell," Bee muses, shedding some light on motives that Amara may not have known about before now. Perhaps Magnus would be angry with her if he knew she was being so candid, but he is not the one who has earned her trust -- he can hardly expect her loyalty. It had always belonged to Amara and the Dieudonne, after all. She's never tried to pretend otherwise.

Wasn't supposed to be there. The smallest smirk flashed across Amara's face, it seemed a common theme for the yearlings to be in places they shouldn't be. Still, coming across the drowning of young wasn't something you could ever be ready for. Amara knew that to some, her family’s taste could be seen as worse but it was rare for the young to be targeted. Ambro had set some strong rules in place and Amara had passed that along to the yearlings in her care when they made their first kill. There was no room for random killing. Her ears flick as the smirk fades, at least they were safe for now. It was still unknown if Magnus would be upset that they saw what they saw. She hoped not. So they wanted the Lagoon because of the ocean. "Wonder if it ever crossed their mind to just, ask if they could join to be closer." She mused out loud. Their families had nothing against each other until that lioness showed up. Had she come asking to join, both their families could have been spared a lot of struggle. Her golden gaze flicked around to make sure they were still alone. "You and Cassine remain close?" Amara had noticed the budding friendship between the two and could only hope that it would offer something to the family that would be as lasting as her own commitment to it.

She huffs softly, a slight shrug rolling her shoulders with Amara's commentary. Somehow, the Sigrún don't seem like the type to be willing to coexist, but the midnight woman no doubt already knows this. In the end, what's done is done, and she grows tired with all the considerations of what could have been. All she knows is that she'd like a new chapter in her book to look forward to -- living in this one has become terribly unpleasant. An ear flickers towards Amara's change of subject, brows furrowing ever so slightly. "Yes," she answers, an unseen shiver rippling down her spine when she considers their last exchange. She has no intention of going back on her promise; for better or worse, her loyalties have been made clear to the Dieudonne heiress. But why Amara is asking after their friendship, she remains uncertain.

Yes. A simple answer to her question. Amara didn't need anything more. She had plenty she would be saying soon enough and needed the yearling's attention. "That is good. I don't know how much you know about Cassine's mother and I but I was her protector before I was Cassine's. I raised Cassine and her brother the best I could but I am no mother." Her face twitched slightly at her words. She loved both of them very much but she doubted they saw her as a mother figure. She had always been very careful to never allow them to call her such or to step into Ambro's paws in that manner. Still she couldn't deny the connection that she felt, even if no one else knew it. "Normally a protector comes from within the family but Ambro won my loyalty and I hers. I became and will always be hers to command into battle or to care for her when needed." There was the slightest ache in her tone as she spoke of Ambro. "I will always protect Cassine, to the death if needed, but she is much younger than I am. She needs a proper protector that can stay with her after my death." Amara didn't plan on dying anytime soon but times weren't the easiest on the family and things were changing quickly. She gave Bee a long and steady look, studying her to see if she was catching on or if the idea was one that she wouldn't accept.

She maintains her lapse into silence as Amara fills the quiet, beginning with something of a story and leaving Bee very much wondering where this is going. She's always been good at listening, however, and so she doesn't even consider interrupting with a question, simply keeping her gaze trained steadily upon the older lioness. She doesn’t know particularly much about Cassine's heritage, only that they had faced tragedy not unlike the Bezras, and parts of her family are missing. She could have easily suspected that Cassine's mother was one of them, and Amara all but confirms it, in the way she talks about Ambrosine like she might come back. She is also smart enough to recognize the increasingly subliminal message to the woman’s words; she is not just talking about herself and Ambrosine, but about Bee and Cassine. One ear remains perched forward whilst the other suggests her hesitation, twisted against her skull. Her brows knit together, and she finds herself unable to do much of anything other than ask an incredulous, "me?" She, who wavers in every decision? Who hardly knows up from down? Surely, surely, there are better choices, more seasoned choices, more stoic, more...anything more than her. It's not a question of if she would defend Cassine to the ends of the earth -- of course she would -- but she still sees herself as hardly more than a girl. She’s no warrior. Not yet, anyway.

Amara wasn't surprised by the questioning nature. She would almost worry more if Bee didn't question it. "Yes Bee. You." She doesn't take her steady gaze off the yearling as she speaks. "I can train you. Teach you." Amara would gladly pass on the knowledge she had in fighting and as far as the family matters went that would be up to Cassine to tell her about if she chose to. Amara didn't learn it for a long time but when she finally learned what the family took part in, it didn't matter to her. Only her loyalty did. She could only hope that when that day came, Bee would feel the same. "Only if you want it. I know you have your own family and loyalties to them. My family was dead long before I found this family." Dead and rotting where they fell in battle. She had no ties to anyone but that wasn't the case for Bee. If the yearling was forced to pick, Amara needed to know she would pick Cassine. It was a lot to ask but there was a lot of faith in the very action of Amara asking her and it wasn't something Amara normally gave to anyone.

She's never been particularly good at making big decisions. Bee knows little else than the direction of her gods, and they're giving her painful little to go on these days, which leaves her trying to figure things out on her own. Her uncertainty is written all over her face, wavering between her want to say yes and her recognition that Amara is implying she would have to choose between Cassine and her sisters if it came down to it. She is young and unsteady, and endlessly frustrated that she cannot simply have both things be true. "I... I want to learn, I do. And I want to keep Cassine safe. sisters need me, too." It's an honest admission, and she is rarely anything other than fully honest with Amara; there is a trust there, and the forging of it hasn't been an easy road. It's an impossible decision, and one that Beelzebub is not yet ready to make.

Amara looks Bee over as the task given to her seemed to weigh on her. She knew that it wasn't something that would be easy for her but Amara could only hope that in time, things would change. Amara attempted to mask her disappointment that Bee didn't take her up on the chance to be what Amara had been to the family. Things were different and maybe in time she would be able to get her to see that. She nodded slowly. ”I will teach you then.” It would be best for all if Bee was a better fighter. ”I hope if the time comes for you to pick, you will be able to live with the choice you make.” That was how Amara had found herself living her life. All her choices were based on how her life would be after it. Rarely was a choice made without some thought for what was after it. What the outcome would be. She gave Bee a sharp nod before walking off to think everything they had talked about over.

exit amara

She doesn't expect any great sense of compassion or coddling from Amara -- that isn't her way. Her claws grind reflexively in the sand, tail curling somewhat uncertainly against her hip. She's granted some reprieve, at least, that she doesn't receive a harsh judgment for her inability to make a decision in this moment; at least, it isn't harsh by Amara's standards. The words she wants to stay are stuck in her throat, but she knows it with certainty: I hope I never have to choose. She ends up watching the speckled woman leave in silence, and gets to her feet shortly after, beginning the begrudging journey back to the Lagoon. Her first problem, really, is securing their freedom. The rest can wait.

exeunt beelzebub

Non-family should only refer to Beelzebub as "Bee." She is very superstitious about revealing her full name and will not do so unless you are extremely trusted.
