• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    In the fray, Owen had a clean shot. Straight line of sight, with no chance to dodge his precision aim. Shadows licked the edges of the beginnings of a Flamethrower that Astrid knew would hurt-- but a flash from her periphery caught his eye at the last second, and Archie received it instead. She...

    The smaller void shadows were starting to add up, not in numbers, but impact. Astrid heaved herself out of the way as a wave of energy sliced through the space she'd just occupied, with some of her allies not being so lucky. It didn't seem to hurt them, but they couldn't move. She glanced up as...

    "I don't believe you!" Astrid cried out above the chaos, vocal cords brimming with an alien hum. Disturbing sounds came from the direction of Drapion, commanding her attention once more. She narrowed her eyes, cracked the joints in her paws... One by one, they'd break them down. Save them...

    Finally. Time to make a stand. Astrid planted her feet and got in formation with the others. She and Grace shared a wayward glance—they’d practiced this before against those Fiends. The stakes were so much higher now, but better they be ready than not. And joining them on the horizon… "Nova...

    "Make the most of all this," Astrid eventually settled on, whirling around into a brief circular pace. "Just try and forget about what I've lost all over again, I guess. In a way, it's... easier now, knowing this is likely my last stop. Knowing that there's still a chance to save this place."...

    "Nothing. That’s the thing." Astrid shook her head and sigh-laughed. "It just doesn’t make-- mm. I dunno how it works, I just… don’t believe that the original me would drop dead or materialize these memories or anything else out of the ordinary. The only thing that makes sense is that she simply...

    "Hmmh." As their circling hit a brief lull and a distance had formed, Astrid took the opportunity to rest for a moment and really think. "Sense of self. Yeah, guess that hasn't changed. I mean, it was just like waking up from a dream--I still feel like me when I first opened these eyes. I still...

    "The privilege to... rest every once in a while," Astrid confessed after a long moment of thought. "Less people starving. More community and sharing, less killing and war. It took forever to break the mold and even start making progress. There was still a lot of work to do, it wasn't perfect...

    "My world," Astrid insisted, finding a rhythm and letting inertia take over. "My... body, I guess. Like, I've no reason to believe I'll ever be able to tap into this experience once it's over. That the-- the neurons or whatever in my brain will someday grasp out of thin air that I had this...

    Astrid nodded back, to the spar but even more to the question. "Yeah. Yep. It’s pretty fucked up the more you think about it, and you know, we got a job to do, so. No point getting stuck too hard on it when there’s still lives at stake." And time to investigate. To find alternatives, gain...

    Astrid looked confused too, before something dawned in her eyes. "Oh, um, I thought you were asking about--" she gestured with her paw and tails at some of the nearby fauna and then the sky. "--all this. Being here, I mean." Thunk went another shard off an innocent rock. "Betel said our worlds...

    "Center of gravity's the biggest change," Astrid admitted. "I guess I’m a li'l off balance. Feels like I need to pivot harder off my hind legs more now that most of my weight is back there." She paused for a moment. Blinked. "Um, that sounds weird now that I say it out loud, ahah. But no...

    Astrid's tongue pushed against the roof of her mouth as if to prompt her brain. "...Bbbbeeeella... trix." When she wasn't corrected, she took it to be true with a relieved smile. "Okay, whew, glad I remembered that. Ugh, I think I've met everyone at this point, but remembering all the names is...

    Threadmarks: Ch04: Muscle Memory

    From the depths of her bedding, Astrid rose again with a concealed scowl. She hadn't bothered to visit Drungfield this time. Even if it made her feel more at home, whatever that even meant, her feet worked fine and that was enough for now after a dream like that. Her directionless trek through...
