AMALIA
It is night when she lands in the Oasis, Jyoti flying by her side. Clad in feathers and starlit wings, the owl is a silent shadow in the dim evening light. She has come to test something out, push her new abilities and see how far she can stretch them. Amalia remembers watching Jigano call to crows, sending them off to capture beetles. How far can she push her call, how much compulsion can she cause?

Landing on a low-set branch, Amalia closes her eyes, her mind expanding as she reaches out for nearby avian minds. One tree away she can sense a snow owl: large and wise, it is looking for voles, its dark eyes acute and intent on the ground. Pressing softly upon its thoughts, she suggests that perhaps it would like to come over, to leave its normally solitary station and find companionship at her side.

A hoot of surprise and delight escapes her as the larger bird suddenly appears, sitting beside her on the branch, rather bemused but not altogether displeased. Triumphant, the girl attempts to reach out once more, seeking to see how many birds she can bring to her side at one time.

don't worry mother,

It isn’t like she’s following Amalia, but with the revelation that Deimos had given her, that the Reaper would be returning to the Spire and to look after the Shield of Safrin, Kiada can’t help herself as she spots the familiar owl as it flies away in the night (though the starwhale helps immensely as well), and the Harpy takes to the skies after. She leaves Amalia be for a time, watching silently through the cover of branches and thick foliage that haven’t dropped yet. And she watches while Amalia convinces another bird to join… Perhaps another attuned?

Or no, she’d seen Jigano do this once before too.

Her head cocks, predatory and curious, and she lifts herself into the sky again until she reaches the low hanging branch the two birds reside on, landing on Amalia’s other side – bearded face reaching over to affectionately nuzzle the owl. “Quite a trick you’ve got there, Ama.” She croons with as much of a smile her beak will allow.

AMALIA
Amalia spots the vulture before it lands, her wide owl eyes easily tracking her large shape in the dim light. Calling out with a keen, clear cry, she greets the familiar harpy warmly, a little bit of humor in the bond between their minds. Fancy seeing you here, Amalia murmurs into Kiada's thoughts, hopping over on the branch to make room for the bigger bird.

The other owl trills its distress, not quite sure what to do with the big scavenger on the branch. It shuffles uneasily, and Amalia takes pity on the thing, releasing it from her compulsion's grasp and letting it fly out into the night. I've been practicing... so far it's only owls. But look- and the girl reaches out again, pulling into the thoughts of two little owls, coaxing them out into the glade where they begin to zip around the trees, Jyoti crooning in their wake.

It doesn’t escape the Harpy’s notice as she nears and the other owl begins to grow a bit anxious. She’s one of the biggest predators, and while owls had their own status as one, there was a certain anxiety that encumbered being around a creature that scavenged. She doesn’t blame it when it flies away, and Kiada spends a moment to fluff her feathers, tucking them in tight against her back as she croons a quiet sharp sound toward Jyoti in greeting.

Her head swivels back toward the baker as she speaks, and looks over the expanse of the Glade to see the birds begin to zip around the trees. “Oh?” She says a bit in surprise, head tilting slightly. “That’s… Actually really useful? When did you notice you could do it?” She asks, scarlet gaze flickering toward Amalia. She wonders if she can try it too, but within the barrier, there’s hardly an amount of vultures to try them on. It’s… Disheartening a bit.

AMALIA
It started recently. Amalia croons a thoughtful sound, shuffling from foot to foot on the branch. First I could sort of... reach out to them? Feel them, through my mind. Then I found that they would do what I asked, even if it was on accident. She chuckles a little, a strange series of chirps and coos, remembering with some abashed calling the local cats on Deimos.

Turning to look at the harpy, the starbacked owl tilts her head. Can you feel them? Maybe birds of prey? We could go find some. Amalia puffs out her feathers and opens her wings, ready to light from the branch, the two little owls following along, interested to see what adventure the new strange birds are up to.

KIADA
Her head tilts, listening as Amalia croons to her. And for a moment Kiada thinks perhaps she might try to do it too, until Amalia turns her head to her and asks. Kiada reaches for something, very briefly, before Amalia opens her wings and begins. And Kiada pauses it for a moment to soar down toward the waters edge, where she’d seen more of the birds of prey stop for a drink. She lands by the water, fanning her feathers as she closes her scarlet gaze, pulling and tugging at that same something.

Only… What happens isn’t exactly what she’s expecting.

She expects to see a few vultures in the area, maybe. But the creature that takes its place is her, where wings had once been, fur has replaced it. A golden, bronze hue of fur with dark ears, and her eyes open as she looks down to spot paws of all things. She whips her head to Ama with confusion. “Ama?!” She calls out through their bond, head tilting as she stumbles slightly, trying to get used to the weight of a body that could walk, rather than hop and fly. Ears flickering uncertainly, she opens her new mouth, sharp canine fangs nearly take up her entire mouth.

Holy shit.” She announces with a purr of laughter.

AMALIA
She follows Kiada on silent wings, staying high among the branches but still near, still lingering, watching and guiding and curious and proud. The harpy lands on the water's edge and from high above the owl observes, waiting to see what magic will happen, what ability will be pulled out from the girl. Amalia remembers each new discovery, from the day she first found her own shift to the more recent abilities to call to the birds.

For a moment there is expectation, patience and silence as she waits, her breath held, for something to change. She expects something beautiful, something new.

She expects something other than for Kiada to shift, a beautiful bronze feline growing where the harpy had been. Amalia gasps, a sharp cry of wonder, amazemend and delight and pride and adoration flooding easily through their bond. Without hesitation she drops the the ground, shifting to leopard form as she does, eager and enthused, inspecting the carcaral from tail to ear tip and lingering to lick along those incredible tufts.

Kiada, you're beautiful! the girl exclaims, purring aggressively and playfully, thrilled to have another feline friends.

KIADA
Her fuzzy head tilts toward Amalia as the woman swoops down to join her at the water’s edge – but before she gets tackled by feathers and talons, there’s a shift back toward the pale white leopardess and Kiada can’t help the purred laughter that shifts through the bond. Amalia circles her, inspecting and checking, testing, before a tongue blips out to lick at her long dark ear tufts. Kiada’s ear flickers, sending the longer pieces of fur fluttering in the air with the movement before she turns to Amalia with her big paws, another laugh leaving her.

She’s much smaller than Ama, and as she lifts her paw to inspect it, she sees the large pads soft with fur between each pad. And then she hops toward Amalia, playful and excited to try out this new form. “I don’t even know what I am.” She announces through the bond, rolling onto her back beside Amalia in the hopes of batting a big paw at the leopardess’ tail.

it is both a blessing and a curse, to feel everything so very deeply
She continues to look and inspect, curious and brazen as a mother with her cub- and indeed, Amalia feels a little as such, protective and caring of the other girl despite their almost identical ages. She has scarcely had a feline form for more than a handful of seasons, but already it is as much part of her as her own skin. Moreso, the girl often feels, finding a comfort and freedom in the guise of the leopard, more at ease as a cat than a woman. Does Kiada feel the same release, the same safety and solace in their animal forms?

The other cat is much smaller than Amalia, who is careful not to hurt her as she explores her form, nudging her playfully to encourage the roll onto her back. She obliges the caracal with her long, long tail, almost as long as Kiada herself, waving it over the other feline's face while sitting and admiring, occasionally leaning down to lick some stray hair off the girl's neck. Me neither, she replies with a rumbling laugh, her mental link clearly saying that she does not much care- it's excellent, whatever it is. You're you. Should we take it for a spin?

KIADA
Its comforting, to be around a creature much like herself, the Harpy finds. And she has no qualms with rolling over into her back, letting Amalia explore while she purrs a soft trilling sound. Its a strange feeling to no longer have wings and yet still no hands, finding more solace in her vulture form. But this has its perks too, as she gives Amalia a slight grin, her large canines protruding slightly with the gesture as she bats at the leopard’s tail.

She admits she doesn’t know what she is either and Kiada rumbles her own quiet laugh down the bond before perking up at her next suggestion. She rolls back over onto her paws and stands, shaking her fur out before head butting Amalia’s shoulder with her face and a quiet feeling of glee. “What did you have in mind?” She asks the leopard, knowing that Amalia has had a feline form far longer and likely knows the limits.

Amalia reacts to Kiads's headbutt by licking between her ears, nipping playfully at those incredibly long tufts and wondering what they're for. Thoughtfully the leopardess rumbles a purr, thinking of a the adventures they will have, delighting in the increased kinship brought by sharing felid forms.

But first, they have to learn about her.

How about a hunt? The vampire gourds are still running rampant; Amalia sends an image of one before suddenly setting off, fully expecting the smaller cat to follow as she leaps and stalks through the Glade. Her advanced senses easily pick up telltale rustling and a little grumble of a nearby herd of squash, but she wants to see if Kiada notices, how she will lead this attack.

KIADA
A purr of laughter is sent toward Amalia as her tongue laps between her ears, and the leopard nips at her tufts on her ears – those same ears flickering uncertainly at letting her catch them. And when Amalia asks about a hunt, she lets her icy gaze drift toward the leopardess with a feeling akin to a grin and excitement. “Yes!” She agrees, bounding with bigger paws as she follows suit and stalks through the grasses.

She lets herself hide a small amount while her form takes control, and her ears flicker with the sound of a rustling of the grasses. The form immediately drops closer to the ground, to remove suspicion, though her head lifts just enough to view through the grasses to the familiar hue of a pumpkin bumbling its way through, a bit lost from the rest of the pack. Her back end wiggles slightly as she follows its trajectory, letting her body do the work – her instincts. And she pounces, using her back legs as a spring, jumping over a fair amount of the grasses as her larger paws delve into a pumpkin and she presses all her weight onto it.

She also reaches forth to bite down onto the orange flesh, feeling the squish in her mouth as she destroys it, feeling the stickiness of the goo that sticks to her whiskers and fur.

Leopardess follows caracal through the underbrush, her instinct slightly more homes by time and familiarity, the skin as comfortable as her own. But despite Kiads's newness to the form, the pumpkin does not stand a chance: she is still a Harpy with a killer's instinct, still more of a huntress than anything Amalia could ever seek to be.

The leopardess steps out of the brush as Kiada begins to crush her prey, cocking her head in silent amusement at the blatant decimation of the gourd. She watches the smaller feline cover herself in pumpkin guts with a resigned sort of humor: there will be nothing left to cook with now, but at least the cub is having fun.

Another rustle from nearby catches Amalia's ear: another pumpkin has come to investigate, unaware of the danger it inches toward. In an instant the leopardess is ready, coiled tightly as a spring, her body rippling with anticipation. In a flash the girl is on the gourd, pressing it beneath her paws and growling laughter as it attempts to flee.

KIADA
She can feel the amusement radiate from Amalia, and she internally grins, smug at it before her attention returns to the gourd she’s demolished. A dark, tasseled ear flickers toward Amalia as she hears another rustle, but Kiada remains on her dead pumpkin now, lifting her head with dripping jaws of pumpkin goo, to watch as Amalia coils and begins to pounce.

The feeling of laughter is sent to her as she keeps the gourd in place while it growls and tries to leave, and Kiada can’t help but purr loudly, a sharp sound of laughter and amusement in watching that struggle too. But she’s focusing on her own pumpkin, pressing her nose into it and moving it around to take a mouthful of the creature – finding it tastes exactly like a regular pumpkin. Hm, how odd? Eyes drift toward Amalia once more, a twinkle of play within them.
