stonebird: (❅ the cornice in the ground)
I. The sun is hot - swelteringly so - but there is an impressive spread under an ornate tent, waiting for a party to begin. Brightly clothed ladies and lords are wandering about like so many colorful birds, speaking of topics that are both light-hearted and threatening. Do not be fooled by the finery around you; this is a jungle filled to the brim with predators. In fact, lions, tigers and panthers might be kinder! At least they are more straight-forward. These are political predators and they take no prisoners.

On the fringes of the party, there stands a tall young woman with hair of auburn. She is looking towards the bay, her focus reaching across the water to somewhere else; somewhere better. Will you take your chances with the party or seek an escape with her?

II. Winter winds blow stinging crystals of ice against the faces, hands and any other uncovered body part of anyone standing outside of the dark castle. There are lights in the windows - a welcoming, alluring warmth - and the front gate is unlatched. Are you daring enough to enter?

III. The mountain is staggeringly high and the air is thin. Yet, at a seemingly impossible height, there is a fortress. Within the walls of said fortress, there is far too much silence. Your footsteps echo against the stone walls and floor - an empty, lonely sound. In the distance, a door creaks and your footsteps are not alone. Do you hide or confront the stranger?

IV. Create your own!

☄ First Impressions (Sansa Stark; Game of Thrones)

♚ VISUAL: Sansa is a tall young woman (standing at about 5'9"). She has long auburn hair with copper highlights, bright blue eyes that she shares with her mother's side of the family (the Tullys) and a fair complexion. When she is wearing her oftentimes ornate dresses, it is easy to assume she is without many blemishes or scars. However, thanks to King Joffrey and his Kingsguard, there are scars on her back, the backs of her legs, her cheek and even her lip. Most of said scars were produced by a knight using his sword in various ways to knock her down.

Yet she also has marks from almost being raped by a mob of starving men and Ramsay Bolton too (for The Far Shore), but they (in the case of the scars Ramsay left) are in places she cannot see.
♚ FASHION: Since returning to her roots, Sansa has adopted the heavier, darker clothing of the North. Her bright colored dresses with delicate stitching are no more. She dons black or grey dresses with long sleeves and often wears fur on top of them.

She might opt for something lighter - and I will keep track of what she is wearing with each post. For Sansa, her dress often depicts her moods without her saying a word.
♚ DEMEANOUR: Her etiquette is impeccable; she holds herself with pride and dignity. But because of all she has witnessed/endured, she has hardened herself to be warier of everyone - even herself. She does not trust anyone fully and she has accepted that no one can protect her but herself. Thus, when she speaks to others, she might seem curt or cold, however that is her way of analyzing them.
♚ AURAL: Her voice is generally low and soft. When she raises it or uses it to give orders, there is a power behind it; a strength that she does not easily see in herself.
♚ OLFACTORY: Sansa loves lavender and other lighter scents. She uses them in her bath water and dabs her wrists and her neck with them once she is dressed. I assume, for a lady of her world/time period, she smells quite nice.


♚ BACKTAGGING: Always and forever unless actions have made an older thread obsolete.
♚ THREAD-HOPPING: Generally speaking, I have no problem with it, but if it gets too excessive, I might say something. If you're not sure, feel free to ask me.
♚ FOURTHWALLING: The idea will startle her and likely distance her from your character, but I'm not against it.
♚ OFFENSIVE SUBJECTS: Sansa has been raped, tortured and tormented. She has lost most of her family to murderous fiends and she has contemplated suicide more than once (to the surprise of no one). If you would like for me to avoid certain subjects with your character(s), please let me know below. I completely understand; the Game of Thrones canon is messed up.

☄ IC

♚ HUGGING: If she is well-acquainted with your character, it might be allowed. Otherwise expect her to struggle and act/sound offended. A lady should never be touched without her permission! It doesn't help matters that she has been taken advantage of too many times to count.
♚ KISSING: Same as hugging. In certain circumstances, she might enjoy it, but it will take a lot of time and CR for her to get to that point.
♚ FLIRTING: She will either return as good as she is given or treat your character coldly to bring such behavior to an end. She is a lady who knows her mind and she is tired of others trying to use her as a pawn.
♚ FIGHTING: She is not physically strong, but she is cunning. There might be a knife hidden in her skirts - or some other sharp object. In fact, there probably is and she will wait for the right moment to stab.
♚ INJURING: It can happen and probably will, but I do want to limit it so she isn't incredibly psychologically damaged by it. She has had enough of that.
♚ KILLING: We can discuss it if the plot is juicy enoughit becomes a natural option.
♚ TELEPATHY/MIND-READING: Only if you want her to panic and give your character a wide, wide berth.

♚ WARNINGS: See Offensive Subjects. I will likely reference the past frequently, but I can be as vague as you need me to be.

stonebird: (❅ (Dali))
CHARACTER: Sansa Stark
CANON: Game of Thrones
GOD: Dali

POWER: Bird Song: A type of Siren Song where Sansa can call her allies/friends/followers to her during times of danger. I was thinking this song might have a hypnotic/luring effect on them, ensuring that they must heed it or she will be forced to seek them out on foot or horseback.
FOLLOWERS: 100 860 2,080 3,385 3,995 4,485
SHINKI: Soulless (Eteri), The Medicine Seller
TEMPLE: Place: Far Shore
Dali's Temple
    To the naked eye, the temple might seem to be a ruin or a palace that has long been forgotten. Trees wrap around the stone structure as if they are intent on melding with it, yet, upon closer inspection, one may notice that the pillars and the roof are well-intact and sturdy. Once one passes the first wall of "ruins", they will follow a long, columned corridor to a large, solitary tower. The tower is octagonal in shape and very wide. Trees encircle the base except for the path leading directly to the large wooden front doors. Scenes of hunting are carved in stone and wood within and there are large statues of an oftentimes merry-looking goddess tending to the animals of the farm and forest - though there are depictions of her passing judgement on those who have wronged her or gone against her orders. Needless to say, the animals - particularly the dogs - are loyal to their mistress.

    In the main temple area - located at the center on the ground floor of the tower - there is a wide pool for cleansing and bathing and an altar to offer up sacrifices. Three hearths burn with merry fires, warming the space even in the coldest months of the year. On the second floor, there is a large, elegant area to dine on the gifts of nature. There is always fruit, vegetables, grains and meat to be had for those who are hungry. The rest of the floors are composed of studies - the goddess enjoys her books - and bedrooms. Each bedroom is unique in that each one represents a different animal. The wolf room will always be reserved for the goddess herself.
