This year’s Valentine’s day was very relaxed and intimate. There’s nothing like spending the day intertwined with your soulmate.

A Whole New World

In a swirl of ǽther, my unconscious body had been lowered from the heavens to the ground.

In a swirl of ǽther, my unconscious body had been lowered from the heavens to the ground. I was stirred awake only by the gentle chirping of crickets and frogs nearby.

I felt like I had slept for days and my body tingled as I stirred.  Something poked me in the back, a stick.  I was laying on the bare ground. As I shifted the evening air kissed any exposed skin it found: my arms, face and feet.

I sat up, my vision was blurred. I rubbed my eyes in an effort to clear the fog. A fire pit was nearby though there was no sign of a recent fire. Dried leaves and an empty bottle of mead indicated it had been quite some time since the pit had been used. But why was I there? What had happened to me? I sat quietly, hands in my lap, as thoughts raced through my head.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-41-53

I stumbled as I stood up. My head pounded and I felt dizzy.  I felt as if I might fall over. Clearly I had stood up too fast.  I put my head in my hands trying to regain my composure.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-43-36

I looked around in a bit of a panic, as I realized I was alone and not wearing familiar clothes.  Was I even in the Eorzea any more? The landscape certainly wasn’t familiar.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-23-53

I looked around for anything familiar. Nothing. My heart pounded in my chest as worry took over, overshadowing my throbbing headache.  I recalled talking with Tataru at the base of the Crystal Tower. There was a portal. Yes! A portal!  Had I gone through it?

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-24-58

I looked to the ground.  I felt strange. Taller. I lifted my gown a bit. My legs were really long.  I gazed upon myself. I reached for my tail and looked behind me. It was gone! My ears twitched. I recall feeling them, on top of my head. I reached up to where they should have been and felt nothing. As my hands moved to the top of my head I quickly discovered I had bunny ears! My Miqo’te ears and tail were completely gone.  Suddenly I realized: I MUST have gone through the portal after all.  Was I in fact in the First? Why was I a Viera? “Tataru!” I called out. Nothing.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-22-17

I was alone. I panicked again, not knowing where to go or who to look for. “Annimae!” Again: silence. I truly was alone.

I set off on foot. I had to find someone or something. A city, a town, a village. Anything. Anyone who could tell me where I was. When I was.  I needed to find my Anni kitty…

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-58-53

I could see a blue glow in the distance. I decided to head in that direction.  I stumbled a bit as I walked.  I was thirsty and tired.  My headache was fading now. Getting up and moving helped a lot.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-56-02

I approached the tower in awe. It looked very similar to the Crystal Tower but I knew it wasn’t.  “I must be in the First!” I told myself.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 20-59-25

The view was absolutely amazing. The wrought iron framed buildings with clouded blue glass walls were breathtaking.  The tower stood paramount over the city. Majestically glowing.

ffxiv_dx11 2020-01-07 21-02-47

I entered the city quickly. My need for sustenance and answers was trumped only by the loss I felt in my heart. I needed my Anni.

Reflections & New Beginnings

ffxiv_dx11 2019-12-01 20-37-37

Anni and Mina sat on the Amaro Launch, overlooking the Baldaquin, enjoying the sunset and catching up. It was a quiet, peaceful evening. Hints of romance were in the air.  A warm breeze kissed their skin and the soft buzz of the city grew even softer as its citizens turned in for the evening.

<Annimae> So I um… *bites her lip*

Mina beams at Anni.

<Annimae> missed you.

<Mina> I missed you too Anni!

<Annimae> these last few days with you have been really nice

Mina nods to you.

<Mina> they have been

<Annimae> *puts her hand over Mina’s, and smiles warmly*

<Mina> *fiddles with Anni’s hand*

<Mina> slow and steady might be best this time…

<Annimae> *there is a bit of a pause* sorry! I um…. yea, got lost in my thoughts…. but yea, I totally agree. There has been a lot of heartbreak in my life……I don’t need any more.

<Mina> I know I’m the cause of half of it… and I am sorry…

<Annimae> *swallows hard as a frog forms in her throat* yea I…… that hurt a lot but…… yea….lets just take it slow., enjoy each other’s company

<Mina> *feeling like the worst person in the world… nods in agreement*

<Annimae> I’m looking forward to new adventures with you. And with time, the past will fade to be replaced with the new.

<Mina> I sure hope so. I can’t wait to spend more time with you!

<Annimae> *Anni’s eyes water up a little, as joy takes over her. She smiles warmly and looks out over the gorge.* I hear this place is beautiful at night….

<Mina> i don’t need scenery for beauty… *stares into Anni’s eyes, pushes Anni’s hair behind her ear and leans in to slowly kiss her on the lips*

<Annimae> *Bites her lip as a tear rolls down her cheek. She quickly catches it on her finger and wipes it away. Just then she feels her hair move. Her heart nearly stopped as the soft lips of the kitten beside her, met her own.*

<Mina> *mina wipes Anni’s eyes and kisses her nose* It’ll be ok Kitten, you’ll see … in time..

<Annimae> *Anni nods happily and smiles. She leans in for another quick kiss before pulling back and looking into Mina’s eyes.*

ffxiv_dx11 2019-12-01 20-39-04.png

<Mina> you’re so adorable

<Annimae> *Anni giggles softly* weeeelll I think you’re pretty cute too ya know.

<Mina> *mina starts purring*

Mina smirks confidently at you.

<Annimae> *Anni leans her head onto Mina’s shoulder and places on hand on Mina’s lap. She lets out a big sigh as the sun begins to set.*

<Mina> *Mina plays with the base of Anni’s tail slightly*

<Annimae> *Anni begins to purr softly, chills cover her body.* mmmmmmm your hands are so soft.

<Mina> I- I’m sorry kitten. I probably should behave myself…

*Anni closes her eyes.*

<Mina> It’s just been sooo long since I’ve been this close to someone…

<Annimae> mmmhmm hehe Well, one day at a time.  *Anni’s tail pulls free from Mina’s hand, only to find another nearby tail and wrap around it.*

<Mina> I- is this ok….?

<Annimae> mmmm I like this, thank you

<Mina> Anni… I – I um have a question…

<Annimae> yea?

<Mina> Well more of a statement? I’m not sure… *giggles*

<Mina> I want to make love to you… soon. maybe not now, but soon.

<Mina> I never got the chance to when we were dating last year… but it’s been something that’s been on my mind for a long time now.

<Annimae> *Anni freezes. She certainly recalls her history with Mina. Taking her virginity, the rough sex, but love making? To be intimate? Oh now Anni’s heart raced.*

<Mina> *Mina could feel Anni’s heart racing through her tail and smiled.*

<Mina> It’s taking all I have right now to hold back…

<Mina> *Mina runs a finger down Anni’s stomach stopping at the top of her skirt*

<Annimae> *Anni bites her lip and squeezes Mina’s hand.* We need to wait kitten.

<Mina> I know… *mina rolls her eyes with a grin*

<Mina> *Mina leans in and whispers into Anni’s ear* … but it would be so much fun to do it right here… *Mina nips quickly and softly at Anni’s ear*

<Annimae> *Anni giggles and kisses Mina a quick peck.* Being your friend would mean more to me than anything right now, love making will come.

<Annimae> oh look!

<Annimae> the lights…..

<Mina> what lights?

<Annimae> *giggles* there! *turns Mina’s head, with a hand on Mina’s cheek*

ffxiv_dx11 2019-11-29 13-12-01.png

<Mina> The city is very pretty. Nothing like home though.

<Mina> I spent my childhood lying under trees in the flowers

<Mina> I love grass and flowers… ya know? color!

<Annimae> mmmm sounds lovely! hence your insatiable hunger for my decor…. *giggles*

<Mina> yeah…

<Mina> flowers are tasty!

<Annimae> I have to admit, they certainly are!

<Mina> I’ll have you know though… Sky was growing much more than just flowers!

<Mina> She was growing Gaelicatnip too! I don’t know how you didn’t notice!

<Annimae> hrm, I knew I smelt something in the air over there.

<Mina> besides sex?

<Annimae> haha yea

<Annimae> oh jeeze….. *Anni blushes*

<Mina> If you’re not careful I might put a collar on you too…

<Annimae> EEP! Well….. maybe one day.

<Mina> perhaps… if you’re a good kitten

<Annimae> haha oh you…… *Anni gets to stand up. She pulls Mina with her* come…

<Mina> come where?!

<Annimae> *With Mina on her feet, Anni embraces her in a long, tight hug* mmmmmm I needed this.
