wispofathing: (Riding the night wind)
[personal profile] wispofathing posting in [community profile] londoncallingrpg
Curnen stood on the roof of her building. She probably wasn’t supposed to be up here, but it wasn’t like anybody particularly noticed or cared and not like she couldn’t evade notice anyway. Her eyes had fallen closed and she let her body sway and swing with the whims of the night wind.

It had been hard to notice it through the heartbreak, but once Curnen had forced herself to get back to work so she could do little things like make her part of the rent, she realized that something had changed. Something in her mind had cleared and sharpened since her father died. She started stringing together a little melody, one all her own. Lyrics, too, though they may not be for this particular piece had started to come as well. There was not a song, not just yet, but when she managed to discipline her unused muscle, there would be one. A dozen. More, maybe, in time.

Now she hummed, and the sound of her humming blended perfectly with the breeze. She lifted her arms and raised her dry eyes to the sky, singing up into the black. The nearly full moon peeked through the cloud cover, and she smiled.

Oh time makes men grow sad
And rivers change their ways
But the night wind and her riders
Will ever stay the same


And the next moment she was gone from that rooftop, flying high above London on Tufa wings.

They, like her creative muscles, were not up to full strength yet. So she landed from time to time to rest, and the wings disappeared as though they’d never been.

Though she had a few deliberate stops to make tonight as well. Look, look! she wanted to tell everyone she knew I can fly!

(And Curnen's got her wings back! If your character know she's fae and she knows where they live, she's stopping by at their window because she can. If they also fly, meet her in the air! Otherwise, she can literally appear anywhere. She's not stupid, though, if you're not one of those people you're probably not catching her with her wings out.)

Winter happened to be in the conservatory, which was a room made of windows at the tippy top of the treehouse. He'd been laying on a pile of pillows and mentally playing connect the dots with the stars, only to find himself distracted as someone landed in the branches.

Curious, the pixie made his way to the hidden door that was dressed up like all the other windows, and slipped out into the night.

"Hello?" he called out curiously.

The pixie perked up at the realization it was Curnen, and carefully climbed his way over.

"You're in our tree," he laughed. "Were those your wings? Did you fly here?"

With each question he appeared more and more excited, until he was practically bouncing on the balls of his feet.

Winter grinned even brighter, making his way over the branches to be at her side.

"That's amazing. We should go flying!" the pixie peeped.

Winter laughed in surprise, then hooked an arm around her to make sure she didn't fall.

"I haven't seen you smile so wide in a while," the pixie said, his voice soft and warm.

Winter understood that feeling. While his wings had never been gone, Aspid had made sure he didn't get to use his. For so long, flight had been barely more than a memory.

"You can though, and we should. Let's fly a bit- And then, when you are tired, I will make us hot chocolate," the pixie offered.

Manuel was doing what he did best: hanging around and being miserable and kind of bored. At the moment he was standing to one side of the pavement, against the wall of a random building, doing nothing except looking glum.

He noticed movement out of the corner of his eye, looked up, and saw that it was someone he knew. "Curnen?"

"Hi," he said, instantly brightening when she spoke to him. "What are you doing here?"

He looked at her, evidently confused. He couldn't see any wings, though he did know that with faeries, that didn't necessarily mean they weren't there.

"Wings?"

He answered her mischievous smile with one of his own. "I didn't know you had wings."

sunsongs: (one thing)
From: [personal profile] sunsongs
A knock at Coby's window was more common than you might expect for a third (second to Brits, but Coby thought of it as third) floor flat, and he crossed to open the window for Anael without setting down the bouzouki a friend had sent him. The smile forming at the thought of Anael shifted to pure glee when he saw Curnen instead. "I told you they'd come back soon," he told her as he opened the window for her to come in.

Coby caught Curnen as she launched into his arms, then gave her a big kiss. "Feeling better now, butterfly?"

sunsongs: (cover me in gold)
From: [personal profile] sunsongs
The giggling, after how shattered Curnen had been just a few weeks ago, was almost as magical as her wings, and blue eyes sparkled as he watched her. Coby couldn't imagine what it was like having wings back after them being gone so long. Maybe he should've, in a way, but he'd give himself a headache (or worse) trying to untangle selves and identity.

"So now you're flying around showing off to everybody who knows? Or am I special?" he teased.

Her excitement was infectious, and Coby was grinning like mad as he found her hand to pull her towards the door of the apartment. "Tell me in all your fairy magic you can keep people from seeing us."
