"I don't think I could do that. I mean, who would even listen to me?" She said. Fiera gently batted her on the head with the tip of a finger. "Ah yes, a lack of public charisma. What a shame. If only you had someone who could teach you how to talk to crowds!" She leaned back, patting the arms of her chair. "Indeed, if only you knew... a politician, of sorts! Someone who has experience in leading people and talking to them... hmmm where could you find one of those." Alice rubbed her face. "Oh my god, shut up, I get the point. Yeesh." She said, while Fiera beamed at her. "I guess I could afford to take some pointers from you. That doesn't solve the problem that I don't have anywhere to put these people if they decide they agree with me. Got anything for that, o magic wonder?"

Fiera huffed. "Of course I do! Plots of land go cheap nowadays, you know! I can just buy you one and hand over the contract! And write it to you in my will! Problem solved!" Alice looked at her, eyes narrowed. "...Didn't you just go on a huge shopping spree and blow all your money on clothes?" Fiera sweated. "What? No! Not ALL of... I mean... I can save up again! Believe me, the 'place' thing is a non-issue! Promise!" She stammered. Alice didn't seem convinced, but she also didn't press the issue any further then. "That's true, but... there's still not enough of me to go around. I mean... am I going to convince people to join me, AND build a ton of houses, AND run shops and... there's a lot there!" Fiera paused, tilting her head sympathetically. "Well sure, but... you know you aren't alone, right? There's other people."

She continued. "Icarus has been asking me to teach him how to put things together lately. Like, carpentry-wise. Maybe he could build your houses. And Langley... well, Langley does anything anyone asks them to do. You might want to keep a close eye on them, actually." She said with a slight cringe. "Desiree I'm sure you could talk into stuff, and... do you really think Amber wouldn't be right there with you?" She said, reminding Alice of the fact that she had a twin sister waiting in the wings. Her ears flew up. "Of course she would help me! I just... I don't want to ask. This is a BIG deal, and if it goes wrong, I'd be dragging them all down with me." She said, trailing off at the end. Fiera didn't seem too concerned, however. "Look, that's not exactly a big deal. If there's some sort of... blowback, I'LL handle that."

"Believe me, I'm used to dealing with angry mobs, and I would LOVE to get the opportunity to punch people for free." She said, with a smile that was a little bit too enthusiastic. Somehow though, that was what made Alice smile in turn. "...You really think that's possible? Or at least... worth doing?" "Of COURSE it's worth doing! I've been thinking about doing it myself for ages if no one else did, dear!" Fiera said, placing a hand to her chest in mock outrage. Alice chuckled. "I guess... I guess it's something I had better get to work on then!" She said, jumping up. "...I'm going to need to learn how to read first though, huh." Fiera nodded, pushing her back into a sitting position gently with two fingers. "Yes, we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. It's a great goal, but... we should start small, first." She said with a nod.

Still, from there Alice took to the day with a sense of dogged determination. The malaise she had been suffering from before was gone entirely, and Fiera could tell that the gears in her head were now moving at a frantic whirl. She tore into the books Fiera brought her with enthusiasm and the minute they got home, she swept the other fairies into another room in private to get them up to speed on her mission. Fiera smiled- it reminded her of... well, her when she was younger. And yet, she couldn't help but feel that this was going to turn out far better than any of Fiera's ventures. Maybe it was because their problems were different. Or maybe it was just because Alice was smarter than her. But either way, she was entirely sure that this was the start of a brighter dawn for Alice, and everyone she cared about.
Zenjesi: Hey Silv - how do you pronounce Kodakai?

Twilight-Claw: I like that one as well yeah, loved the old nootnoot image from quest prizes, so that one went perfectly with that particular costume being based around it. X3

Twilight-Claw: The jewelry on tail or at the head definitely tends to be their most recognizable feature for a Mosca, and sadly their pharaoh chin piece as well. XD
Nov 13, 2023 15:21:07 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Your peanut costume is hilarious and adorable too!
Nov 13, 2023 15:14:29 GMT -6
Zenjesi: Yes you're correct! I guess I did a decent enough job with the drawing!
Nov 13, 2023 15:05:27 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: It still looks good on Synkka. She is a shaman Mosca I'm guessing? Its mostly the tail that makes me think of it.
Nov 13, 2023 15:00:42 GMT -6
Zenjesi: I definitely like Spectral's the most too! I sort of cheated by drawing Synkka with a cloak because I do not know how to draw feathered wings, haha ^^'
Nov 13, 2023 13:45:15 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Which one do you like the most out of the three you made?
Nov 13, 2023 12:09:48 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that compliment! Though I know with the water it doesn't look entirely great, I love the latter one I made the most.
