Travel through these accursed mountains had proved so far to be tedious. Although the beginning of the appearance of autumn was bound to decrease the temperature, there seemed to be a much-gloomier and colder clime swathed about the monumental, snowy peaks around him. Dragomir didn’t care what the weather was like; the cold winds that buffeted against him now were merely a preparation for the frigid winter to come. Reminders that he would need to seek the symbiotic company of other wolves before small prey became scarce, and the more animalistic traits of his species became prominent.

There were packs and bands of rogues to be found just about anywhere, though finding one worth his time was a different story entirely. Since the ties between the rest of the Negrescu and Blanc families had been severed he’d been disgustingly-disappointed to find that most wolves were weak-willed, primitive-minded creatures. Organic vessels programmed solely by hormones and senses and instinct,  hardly worthy of calling themselves ‘wolves.’ Certainly, lodging with just any assembly of his species was out of the question; unbefitting to a being with such pure bloodlines as himself.
Time would be the only indicator of where the behemoth would find himself for the colder months. Certainly, there would be no compromise in the meantime. If he began to run out of time, he would just have to start looking harder. Or, perhaps, assemble his own group of specimens. The second option would yield a better result, surely, as he could pick and choose just who he would be subject to interacting with. The catch was, of course, that he could find them before the brunt of winter had begun.

So many possibilities, cluttering up his brain. Hypotheticals were one thing, but action was another. Circumstance was the only true indicator of how fate would reveal itself. Until he found himself among others of his kind, Dragomir had no way of telling what the incoming autumn had in store for him.

He paused his travels briefly to approach a large lake he’d spotted in the distance. To catch his breath, get a drink, and perhaps hunt himself something to fuel the rest of his travels through the mountains.

Jean was out looking for herbs before the winter cold came through. It came quicker to the mountains… So she would have to be quick.

Her mind lingered to Spice as she wondered what herbs to pick up. Her knowledge was limited compared to her mentor… Which stirred doubts in the woman’s mind. Would she ever be good enough?

Her thoughts trailed off as a foreign scent danced upon the breeze. So many travelers.. It was Jean’s job to greet them now when the time came.

Her paws carried her frame down the slopes towards the scent.

A dark form was seen in the distance through the trees. Jean put a smile on and swayed her tail as she made her way over.

The brute had almost reached the lake when snowflakes began to sparsely drift down. He wondered if the wolves inhabiting these mountains were of hardier stock. They certainly didn’t live here for the pleasant weather or easy navigation.

He reached the edge of the water, deciding that, should he get the opportunity, he would like to speak to one of the mountain-dwellers around these parts. Dragomir bent his head down to the surface and lapped up some of the frigid water.

Interesting. There seemed to be a scent on the breeze now. The male lifted his broad muzzle from the water, licking the crystalline droplets from his jaws, and moved to a seated position a ways away from the shore. He could make out a dark figure now, seemingly approaching him, but he couldn’t tell much else.

Perhaps today was his lucky day.

Peregrine lingered by the rocky shore, entertaining himself with a lonesome game of “how far can you jump.” The fog and mild slipperiness of the rock surfaces weren’t of much help as he attempted to land with calculation and success. He’d slipped more than enough times, but a boy his age needed a form of healthily draining youthful energy. The other option was to chase his tail, and as much as he liked doing that, the dizziness that followed after it was less than pleasant.

The goal of the game was to leap over as many rocks as an adult would. Thus far, he’d successfully managed to jump over one rock and land on the rock pressed right up against it. Granted, it had been a relatively small rock, but it was enough to send a surge of determination through him. With enough practice, he knew he’d jump over three—dare he say, maybe even four—rocks.

His chest would bruise from the fall he’d taken on one of the rocks and he was sure that he had at least one scrape on his right foreleg from flying into another. Call it naivety, stupidity, or what have you, but Peregrine labeled it as sheer bravery. If he could jump as far as an adult could, then he was a superwolf.

The boy’s leaping was paused at the sound of pawsteps in the near distance. He turned around, half hoping it’d be a member of his family. His heart sank when he caught sight of the stocky male drinking from their lake.

“Hiya,” he greeted almost defeatedly, but before any introductions could be exchanged, the boy followed the stranger’s gaze and caught sight of yet another unknown wolf. She seemed amicable, but she wasn’t any of the wolves he particularly wanted to be with. It was just one of those days in which he wanted to show off his skills to his family, not to wolves who would end up fading out of his life anyway. Nonetheless, his tail swayed in its friendly way, preferring peacefulness over hostility.

//Slash is on leave & said she was skippable, so I’m going to keep this thread moving since it’s Dragomir’s first. c:

Hiya. The voice, sounding almost dejected, pulled his attention away from the incoming stranger. A lanky little thing had appeared near him, his tail wagging along behind him. Physically, Dragomir remarked that the kid wasn’t much to look at, one particularly strong breath could probably topple him, though his pelt was a nice, pure color.

“Hello,” he responded simply, light eyes blinking down at the lad. The approaching woman had a much darker pigmentation of fur, though he wondered if they were kin. If not, then perhaps the mountains were more populous than he’d expected, if two wolves had suddenly appeared out of thin air to acknowledge his presence.

okie~ <3

The man was about as black as 60% of Peregrine’s family. The only differences between the stranger and Da, that the puppy could note, at least, were the man’s muscularness and eye color. Scent, naturally, had its differences as well.

”You look like Rook, Faolan, and Da,” Peregrine remarked innocently, momentarily disregarding his game and the fact that his family hadn’t come to cheer him on in his odd version of hop scotch.

Dragomir practically wrinkled his nose at the little boy. Was that all he had to say? That he looked like other wolves he knew? And how uncivilized was he, to address his father by ‘Da’? Perhaps these wolves weren’t any better than the ones he’d already met, after all.

“I’m sure,” he replied, face stony. “Are they your family?”

He thought about his family. How he missed being around civilized wolves!

Peregrine nodded. “Brothers are Rook and Faolan, Da is Da.” Because, well, Da was Da. It was self-explanatory.

Eyes trailing back to the rocks, Peregrine’s developing brain sparked with a brilliant idea. “Can you jump over rocks?” The boy asked curiously. He wanted to measure how far an adult could actually jump without having to assume that they probably could get as far as three rocks.

He demonstrated by leaping over one rock with practiced perfection. “Like that?” he asked, smiling at the guy after his successful landing. If he was lucky, maybe he’d get a compliment for going through with such a difficult task without falling clumsily.

Dragomir wondered if the poor thing had any friends, or if all he knew was his family. And why was he all alone out here, by such a large lake? The brutish male was growing less impressed with the wolves in the area by the minute.

At the pup’s rather odd question, Dragomir blinked at him. He could tell the pup was proud of his achievement, as he did land perfectly and smiled a little afterward. Knowing the obsessive tendencies of children, he wondered just how much the little boy had practiced.

He decided to humor him, even if just a bit. “Yes, I’m sure I could,” he rumbled, eyeing the swath of rocks. “You seem to be an expert at jumping over them, too.”

The stranger affirmed his capability to jump over rocks, but gave no proof. Peregrine hopped off the rock and into the grass, hoping the dark male would take his place. ”Show me!” he said, tail wagging. It wasn’t that he didn’t believe the fellow—he did. Peregrine just wanted to measure the distance to set a goal for himself.

At the compliment, Peregrine beamed proudly. ”I am! And will be more expert with more practice!” he returned blissfully.

Dragomir wasn’t pleased with being commanded around by the whelp. For whatever reason, though—perhaps because he’d already complimented the boy on his skills, or perhaps because his light-colored pelt reminded him of his family—he took his place on the rock.

He supposed the opportunity to show off would make up for being commanded to do so. He crouched down, bunching his muscles in preparation, and finally exploded outward, crossing the expanse of four rocks and landing heavily on the fifth. The onyx male turned, the smallest gleam of childish satisfaction in his eyes, and awaited a response.

Surely, the pup would be in awe at his rock-jumping feat.

The dark male jumped right on up to the rock before leaping farther than Peregrine had imagined. It was double the length the boy had been able to achieve at any given time. His jaw dropped in utter fascination and admiration.

”Woah,” he whispered, looking up at the dark wolf and smiling widely. Some jealousy trickled through, but he suppressed it with his excitement for reaching the man’s abilities. Practice would do it, he supposed.

Dragomir knew he’d done well. A self-satisfied smile cracked his normally-stoic visage. The big male lumbered down from the rocks and sat down beside the pup. He nodded, eyes closed, as if to say, I really did that.

“I’m sure you’ll get better as you grow,” he commented, light, lidded eyes peering down to survey the smaller boy.
