What the hell was she getting herself into. The electric pig snarled and snatched around. She had gotten the Bwee as an egg, and the static pig grew and had become harder to deal with. It responded to its name, but that was the extent of the training she had done with him. Electro snarled towards her, and showed his thorns to the mammalian. He snapped his jaws at her. Amelia stepped forward towards her pet, not about to put up with any of his antics. "Electro, no!" She snarled towards him, and he quickly stepped back. Oh, well. What harm was she going to do? He calmed down, dropping his thorns and scratching meekly at the ground.
Amelia grabbed her bag, putting some of her stuff aside. A small bug crawled out from behind the tree, going towards the pig. Electro stepped back, growling at the bug that was crawling across the dirt. He growled and stamped his feet on the ground. Static crawled between his thorns, bouncing from one thorn to another. It danced around his feet and through his tusks. He growled again and a large zap of electricity flew towards the bug, charing it in a moment.
"Electro! That was amazing! How did you do that?" The mammalian lept forward and threw her hands up, praising the porcine excitedly. What an eventful thing.
Electro softened, looking at the snow leopard in awe. She was, impressed by him? What was it that he did that made her so happy. He knew he liked seeing her happy, and he wanted to see more of it. He softened completely, wiggling in excitement and anticipation of seeing what else the mammalian was going to do. He sniffed at the charred bug on the ground and pulled it into his snout. He chomped away happy, eager to have something so delightful to eat. See, this wasn't too bad. He sniffed around eagerly, hoping he could find something else to zap into oblivion. Amelia was not very large, so the Bwee was much larger than she initially anticipated it would be. He was half the size of a full-grown woman, and Amelia was quite a bit smaller than that. By blood, she derived a lot from a snow leopard. On average they were only 4-5 feet long, and Amelia couldn't imagine she was much bigger than that. Slim, but muscular, she certainly had the strength of a larger human. She was more dexterous however, and her small stature made that easier for her.
"Alright bud, that was really good. I honestly think we could do it again. Let's find you something else to zap."
She began to pick rocks up off the ground, hoping something would crawl out from under it to get the static pig going again. Electro sniffed around too, but however he did not see anything coming out to cause him any extra excitement.
Amelia seemed to have a lot of physical creatures. Sandy was a good example, same with her Sarane. They used their brute strength to inflict damage of foes. Be it claws or horns, they could trample anything in their path. Aside from injectable powers, she did not work a lot with her creatures that had natural elemental abilities. She new as a piglet Electro had a bit of electric abilities, but it wasn't until adulthood that she really could visibly see the electricity flow through him. It danced between his thorns and surrounded his body. Letting out a quick burst of electricity was not difficult for the pig, in fact, it was something that it did naturally. That was a hunting technique, but also helped with batting and socializing. She imagined that Bwee enjoyed roasting little bugs, even if they weren't always interested in eating them.
There! She lifted up a rock and a small roach crawled out from under it. Electro noticed too, and quickly turned to look at her and the bug. It began to scatter away, and the pig went after it. He danced around it, stomping the ground and sending dirt up flying. It seemed however that he was not all that interested in eating this bug, he was too busy playing with it. "Do your shocky thing!" The mammalian shouted out and pointed hysterically at the roach that was trying to scatter away from the large hog. He didn't seem to care, he was truly enjoying it.
Training an elemental creature was harder. How could she train him what he was supposed to do when it was so hard to get him to do it in the first place. She knew he could naturally do it, which made her job significantly easier. It was just hard to convince him to do it again. Ribbons of telepathy helped with these kinds of moves, but it still didn't mean that it was easy. And she didn't have a ribbon for him. Yes, she had ribbons. But she didn't want to use them on him. It was a crutch with training, and she knew that if she was truly determined that she would be able to get him to learn without the ribbon, it just might take a lot longer.
The roach continued to crawl around the hooves of the electric pig. He squealed in delight, stomping right where the bug was about to crawl. It would turn the other way in shock, where the Bwee would simply interfere with the direction it was going. He stomped around in delight, more dust coming up. After a few minutes of this, he began to buzz and static began to jump between his thorns. He was getting ready to play a different game. Good, this was exactly what the woman was going for. In only a few short instances, the roach escaped the hooves of the Bwee, and was zapped into a piece of black dust by an electrical shock from the Bwee.
There was a lot of trouble when teaching the electric pig to do things. One of the big troubles was communicating, obviously. In the past the ribbons had made training much easier, but now the mammalian had to train without one. She had some gorgeous silk ribbons at the kennel, waiting to be assigned to a creature. The thing was, she was happy without it. It was a bigger challenge to teach something to a creature without a ribbon, and she enjoyed the idea of the challenge. Recently she had felt herself escalating again, and her mood swings were getting worse. Mood swings may not be the most accurate word for it, but the mammalian wasn't sure how else to describe it. She would get manic, and frankly if she let herself make decisions they were extremely poor decisions. When she escalated she tried to do things that were simple, like training or mining. She tried to stay away from people, and limit the options of making poor choices.
"Electro, let's keep going!" The snow leopard cheered, and began to toss around rocks. Her energy was in a good spot for training and motivation. Self motivation perhaps, but it didn't necessarily mean she got things done right or effectively. The hog looked at her and grunted, seeing her toss around rocks aimlessly. He knew her goal was... something? "Electro, come on! Zap some bugs!" But there were no bugs. The mammalian hadn't unearthed anything, just dirt. The Bwee moved around, sniffing at the ground, looking for something to occupy himself. He picked at a twig, chewing on it aimlessly. She had to do something a little more exciting for him to enjoy training.
Nadia: So the ruling seems to be that you’re welcome to post mature content wherever you feel best doing so as long as it is properly tagged! PG-13 applies to training, though. :3

Twilight-Claw: Should you have the answer for it Nadia will you post it on the cbox? <3
Jul 4, 2020 11:20:14 GMT -6
Nadia: You can for sure talk about Cloud 18 in suggestions! No worries there. As far as the rulings on what constitutes Cloud 18, I’ll have a chat. :3
Jul 4, 2020 10:31:26 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Though that with explicit details on whether that would be more cloud 18 or can be in used in the public parts of MML would be good to know, as if it is the first, I would need to edit that in with the suggestion. X3
Jul 4, 2020 10:09:23 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: It would be great to know for certain whether it is allowed! Almost done with writing everything down, just need to finish the last bits of it. Its mostly just the wording of the rules that are going to be used, no explicit details of what isn't already in
Jul 4, 2020 10:06:26 GMT -6
Nadia: I'm happy to be corrected on this! I'll get some greater clarity for you guys.
Jul 4, 2020 9:12:55 GMT -6
Nadia: My assumption regarding Cloud 18 has been that general maturity is fine on the boards - language, violence, mature content - but anything revolving around the explicit would be best placed there.
Jul 4, 2020 9:12:34 GMT -6
Nadia: I'd be pretty confident to say that discussion of the Cloud 18 rules in suggestions would not be a problem! Properly labelled and not going into any potentially triggering content. :3 Though I'm sure the questions wouldn't warrant that.
Jul 4, 2020 9:11:29 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I have no idea, I only got what is on the news and at the site rules (which are the same) to go of on. :3
Jul 4, 2020 7:46:44 GMT -6
Darky: Wasn't the maturity part for general maturity, but explicit stuff would still be Cloud 18?
Jul 4, 2020 7:05:53 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: *still busy writing it all out*
Jul 4, 2020 6:53:49 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: I have no idea, but that's why I am asking if its possible to bring it up in the suggestion thread (though not about if it is still relevant, but some of the ruling) without threat of banning looming over my shoulder for even mentioning something about it.
Jul 4, 2020 6:53:32 GMT -6
Nerius: Is cloud 18 even relevant now that the whole site rating has been upped to mature?
