So why was he back at square one? Good question! Not that you asked, but, hey. The answer was that he hadn’t found anyone. He’d gone out in search of literally everyone and had found 0 wolves. So back to square one.

The meadow. He stared at the white wisps of snow floating onto the ground. What the hell was he supposed to do now? Rota’s scent wasn’t around. It’d been replaced by the scents of some unknown wolves. 

He’d lost weight after all of his traveling—back to his usual shape, but the same old personality clung to him like superglue. Altair had managed to hunt for himself during his little one-man search party and had thus trained himself to be a little less lazy, but he was far from being a determined athlete. Still the good ol’ prick he always was. This time with a mission… to fucking find someone because GOOD GOD where was everyone!?

Annoyed and finally irritated enough to use his voice, Altair released an angered growl. And then back to silence.

((Just thought I’d mention AJ, Maya and maaaybe Aura {she isn’t inactive but hasn’t been posted with for a while so we’re in that difficult ‘she’s here but not here’ phase} have been living in the meadow, and while they aren’t actively scent marking Altair would be very likely to smell something more than passing rogues :) ))

Well the berries were gone and the snow had set in, but AJ didn’t let that get him down - what did, really? He was currently dancing around his and Maya’s beloved meadow, bouncing at snowflakes and occasionally diving into drifts of snow where it was starting to pile up. Flakes cluing to his face and around his ears, and the brown timber looked like something of a snow monster currently.

Where was Maya?! She was going to miss all the fun! He didn’t hear the low growl, but he did spot a tricoloured figure and let out a cheery bark of his own. Oh good, they had visitors! Not anyone he recognized, but that didn’t phase AJ.

“Heya!” He called cheerily, his tail shooting up and waving a warm welcome.

(edited, sorry abt that!)

Oh God no. The cheery tone was enough to get Altair’s sour mood right back into place. Instead of giving a proper greeting in return, the yearling just stared at the other male. It smelled as though his scent belonged to the group of wolves that seemed to have taken over the meadow.

“What did you do to my sister,” Altair demanded. Because it was obviously logical to assume that these scents had devoured his sister’s and that they were at fault for it. “Where is Rota Penumbra.” His lips pulled back in warning. Get any closer and he’d be ultra annoyed. Even closer, uber annoyed. Then mega annoyed. And… you get the point. Lots of levels of annoyance.

((No biggie, they’d be no way to be immediate obviously OOCly unless you were stalking this guy :P))

AJ was smart enough to stop where he was, leaving a good distance between himself and the snarly guy, holding his gave without fear. Wow, nice manners on him for a young fellow, and by AJ’s standards that was saying a lot.

“Easy Grumpy, me and my friends haven’t met a Rota Penwhatever, and we’ve been here since the end of autumn.” He informed The Grump, his tone and stance not changing, staying light and easygoing, though his tail wasn’t waving quite as much.

What was it with other wolves calling him grumpy? Did they not understand that he was your average dude? Altair shrugged it off, he could care less about what strangers thought of him as long as it didn’t get him killed.

“Penumbra,” he corrected insistingly. “Didn’t ask when you got here.” And he didn’t care either because the fact of the matter was that this wasn’t their home. “Seek residency elsewhere, this isn’t your home.”

AJ didn’t stop grinning. He knew well that grumpy wolves often preferred reactions of scowling and acknowledgement of how dominant they were, and AJ didn’t play into stuff like that.

“Oooh, what a fancyfur, your big words don’t impress me, Grumpus! I mentioned it because obviously your missing sister left BEFORE then. Well before then, there were no fresh scents around.” Kid clearly wasn’t a bright spark so AJ spelled it out for him.

“Wrong again!” He informed the guy with a ready grin, but after the earlier baring of teeth AJ’s shoulders were tensing subtly, his show of friendliness dying down. “This is our home, and all three of us are staying right here.”

It wasn’t too often that Maya decided a day was good for sleeping in. Today, though, had been perfect for it.

So, of course, someone would come into the meadow and decide chit-chatting was a great thing to do when Maya was trying to sleep in.

The voices pulled her from sleep easily, but she grumbled in protest - even fought to drift back off for a moment. But the voice talking back at AJ seemed annoyed at something, and it piqued Maya’s curiosity.

So, with great grumbles and dramatic blinking against the light, she crawled from her log, sleepy eyes searching for the voices.

/// She’s not far so most likely can be seen, but she’ll be there next round. She’s being slow and sleepy xD

Although he was still irritated by the guy’s words, they were helpful. Rota hadn’t been around for a while and hadn’t returned either, then. Which meant she’d left for good, but who knows where.

Choosing not to acknowledge the majority of his words, Altair decided to cut the conversation short. “This is my birth home,” he argued. “Not yours.”

Too focused on this stranger, Altair didn’t notice the other one approaching.

AJ was well aware that Maya was lurching awake, if at half-speed. An ear flicked back towards her, but nothing more - he wasn’t dumb enough to look away from a guy who could be threatening. He knew if there was trouble, Maya had his back, and hopefully Aura wasn’t far either, though she’d clearly been exploring further afield these past few weeks.

“So? You left, you didn’t expect an empty, unclaimed territory to be waiting around uninhabited, did you? Besides, me and my girls aren’t even going to stop you staying here, the more the merrier man.”

She caught snippets of the words being said as she shuffled closer, still sleepy eyed. Apparently, whoever AJ was talking to had been born here? Maya perked up at that, forcing herself into consciousness enough to pick up the pace.

She only paused when she reached AJ’s side, easily leaning her weight into him. “S’goin on?” The words were said through a yawn and when her jaws closed, she peered over at the stranger, curious. “Hiya, Who’re you?” Blink, blink. Stranger boy was kinda pretty. Not Valley levels of pretty because seriously - who was?

A small burnt looking wolf decided to pop up, too. Absolutely disgusting. Her scent also mingled in with the smells that were strongest here. Repulsive.

“To find family and bring them back home,” Altair shot back, ears flattening onto his head. Rude strangers, who did they think they were? Parading into his homeland like they owned it. Like they knew its significance, history, and worth. Ignorant bastards.

“The rightful owner of this land,” he told Maya, watching her with the most annoyed gaze ever recorded in Altair history. Technically the rightful owners were his parents, but they weren’t here.

AJ was pleased when Maya came to lean against him, but instead of flopping his head over her neck or curving his chin across her head in a typical AJ affection, he dropped a nuzzle between her ears, followed by a little nudge for her to stand up straight.

Her wasn’t convinced this guy was harmless, and he didn’t want a sleepy Maya to become a target. Though this Grumpus would have to be an idiot to attack two wolves, he had encountered idiots bigger than this.

“Hey Maya, this kid is Grumpus Penumbra. He thinks we’ve hidden his sister somewhere, and is apparently kicking us out of our own home.” This news was delivered with his typical cheer and humour, but Maya knew him well, well enough to pick up the undercurrent in his voice.

Warning. Wake up, Maya, they might be in for fireworks when this kid realized they weren’t going anywhere.

Okay, well, pretty boy was kind of a grump. But she should have expected as much from the tone of voice she’d caught from her little sleepy log. Huffing out a breath, she leaned more fully onto her own paws at AJs nudge. That alone was enough to focus her, nudge the sleep away. She was used to him letting her lean, so the fact that he pushed her away, even gently, had her narrowing her eyes at pretty boy.

As AJ spoke, explaining what was going on, her eyes flicked between the two boys before settling on Grumpus again, head tipped just a fraction to the side. “Wait a minute,” a little frown pulled her lips down. “You can’t just waltz in and tell us to leave. We live here, have for a while. And your scent wasn’t here when we got here, so.” Finders keepers, and all that. Maya was not leaving.

The stranger ignored his explanation and Altair really didn’t feel like wasting his time anymore. He’d bring Rota back here and she’d show them her pretty teeth. And then all would be well in the world.

“I’m warning you now: if by the time I get back here you lot are still here, you’ll be forced to face more than just me.” Well, they wouldn’t be facing him at all. They’d just be facing Rota. Because, well, Altair wasn’t a fighter.

And with that, Altair turned and started heading who-knows-where.

[attempted exit, but he’s not running so supes easy to catch up]

You see? This was why he loved Maya. Because damn, the girl was right. AJ felt an unexpected rush of annoyance, verging on real anger, and he whisked his tail at Maya. “Hang on, just gotta…”

He raced after Grumpus, spinning neatly around to face him once he was out ahead.

“Let’s get one thing straight kid.” He puffed his chest out and actually glared, his seemingly endless patience worn thin. “We’re going to live here peacefully, and we have every right to do exactly that. But if you threaten my friends ever again, you’re going to regret it. Got that?”

Maya’s ears flattened with the threat the kid threw at them, uneasiness bubbling up. Would he really come back with more wolves and try and force them out? What the heck was wrong with this kid? This was their home now. If he’d wanted to keep it so bad, he should have stayed.

When he turned to walk off, Maya thought that would have been the end of it, but nope. AJ took off after the kid and Maya’s ears pinned back all the tighter, taking a few steps after him, worry surging forward. If the kid started a fight Maya wasn’t sure what would happen. “AJ,” Maya called, a few more steps forward.
