CASTANET ISLAND
Welcome to Light of the Harvest Moon! We are a Harvest Moon based RP forum set on Castanet Island. We have dozens of canon characters from all the games to pick from, but you can always make your own character as well. Feel free to look around our forums and see what insanity the members have been up too.

Slowly, the snow has melted away and the green grass has been poking it's way up. Flowers have begun blooming again, the trees are leafing, and the fish are swimming. However, the entire island is still not at ease. With the continued search for the missing Harvest Sprites, some of the villagers run around frantic worried about what will happen to the island if they don't find all of the sprites. Also, some villagers have noticed that the sea seems...different. Not as gentle as it used to be. However, not that many villagers are worried about it now though. Is it an omen of things to come?

IVIERA KIERAN RIVIERA KIERAN RIVIERA KIERAN RI

Flakes of snow danced through the air, allowing their bodies to move to the ebb and flow of the quiet and ever-so-slight breeze that marked their tempo. The sky was white and gray and cloudless as one would expect when it were snowing and despite that it was afternoon, there was little light to be seen and the atmosphere that shrouded Castanet was gloomy at the very least.

Although to anyone else the weather would seem less than pleasant, it was perfect for someone like Kieran. If it had been any better of a wintery day there would be children running and screaming, shouting and playing obnoxious games and pelting snowballs at each other, building ugly men out of snow and launching themselves at the ground to make “angels” – it was all nothing more than a nuisance.

However, upon stepping out of his house he came to realize just why everyone kept under their sheets and beside the fireplace sipping at hot cocoa on such a day.

Although there was hardly any wind, the few gusts that swept by him occasionally were sharp and brittle as if they were trying to push him away. About halfway through his walk and quest to find a quiet nook to read in, he decided that he would stop by the bathhouse that he'd heard was nearby.

The steam that rose from the pool of water lulled him in like a sailor to a siren, the occasional ripple and bubble of the water played in his eyes like a gift from the gods.

Quickly, Kieran peeled off his jacket, and then his sweater and his pants, his shoes and socks, and then lowered his body into the hot water, letting out a relaxing sigh as he did so. Once he leaned back into the rocks in a comfortable position he grabbed the book that he had brought with him and began feasting his eyes upon it, slowly becoming unaware of any sort of life or movement around him.

Typically, Ayanna hated winter. She hated being cold, she hated having to stay inside and do nothing but drink hot cocoa (though super yummy) and huddle by the fire. Winters were boring enough in places that were actually civilized but here... well, there were only so many times she could be amused by sledding down hills and throwing snowballs at unsuspecting victims. She needed more grown up forms of entertainment - parties to dress up for, galas to attend, dances to well, dance of course!

She had set out today in search of something, anything to do. To her perplexed disappointment, Ayanna soon realized there was nothing. For some reason, the streets were fairly empty; most people were clutching their coats as they scurried quickly from shop to shop, eager to return to warm homes. It was even too cold for the children of the village - they had long abandoned their snowmen, half-formed mounds all teetering in the frigid, gusty air.

Well, if she couldn't have her summer now, she could have the next best thing. She had found the bathhouse easily enough and it seemed as deserted as the rest of town. Without a care for modesty, she flung off her coat and sweater, her boots and pants. Stripped down to her lacy black bra and panties, she shivered, savoring the cold. And then, she cannonballed in with a huge splash!

Ahhh... so nice and hot and toasty! Could she just stay here forever?

There was something magical and luxurious about being in a hot bath while the snow fell. Instead of being bundled up and shivering, one could appreciate the swirl of the snowflakes and the brush of the icy wind on their skin. The world was white and silent, holding it's breath as it awaited spring's return. When cocooned in hot water, winter was anything but melancholy - it was enchanting.

She splashed around loudly, still unaware of anyone else's prescense.

It was as if, in Kieran's mind, a wall had been built around the bathhouse. There was a force that prevented anyone or thing or thought from coming in or going out and he became lost in his own world; the world of his mind, of his imagery and of the book, a sweeping tale about a young man who was rich and smart and powerful but threw away everything he had in an attempt to find true happiness.

If anyone tried such a thing in reality, Kieran would have marked them as an idiot, yet when it was placed into chains and lattices of words of such poetics, he seemed enchanted by it.

The serene and empty atmosphere that he was trapped in had become a realm inside of his own mind. In it, nothing beyond the rocky walls that contained the water existed; there was only a blackness beyond.

Or so he had begun to believe when suddenly, an intruder was caught and a giant splash interrupted the little world he had formed in his mind.

Hot water splayed at the ends of his book, splotches dotted all over the weathered cream pages forming abstract shapes and patterns. Rage began to boil in Kieran and he lifted his face to see an (although he would never admit it) attractive woman with long brown hair splashing around and making the world that he had called his, her own.

“What do you think you're doing?” He asked, his voice dripping with accusation as he stared her down with as chilling of a gaze as he could manage. If there was anything that could bring him to hate someone almost immediately, it was to come in between him and his books.

Mmm, the water felt so good! Snow was languidly drifting down around her, vanishing as it hit the hot water. There was something poetic about it, but Ayanna had given up her books long ago. When she was younger, she would escape into the worlds crafted in pages, desperate for something to hold on to. She would hide her books in places her father and siblings wouldn't find them. Stealing moments to travel to faraway places or become someone else, even if it only lasted as long as she held open the book.

When she had left, that had been it. She threw herself mind, body, and spirit into becoming an eternally happy, ditzy party girl. And where had it brought her but back to a farming village like the one she left?! Talk about full circle. She swung her arm out and splashed, annoyed at herself.

No, no, no. Ayanna didn't make mistakes. Coming here wasn't a bad idea. The farming village and this moment here, right now, in the bath with the snow all around her was an enchanting little adventure too! Yeah, that was it! She perked herself up again, kicking her feet and her splashes becoming happy little plip plops across the water.

At the sound of a voice, Ayanna stopped mid-splash. Someone else was here?! Oh... how EXCITING! She turned her head, a coquettish grin already set on her face. It was a young man, probably around her age, rather handsome with light brown hair and golden brown eyes. What an... interesting place to meet. It had been way too long since she had had a boyfriend or a fling or a random bit of one-time fun. Unfortunately, he didn't look as happy to meet her as she did to see him.

She widened her eyes dramatically, "Oh, gosh! I can't believe I didn't notice you." Ayanna made her way towards him, stopping only a couple feet before him. She didn't pay much attention to personal boundaries. "If I had, I would've definitely said hello."

With each splash and splosh of water, Kieran found himself receding closer and closer to the edge of the pool, pulling his arms out as if to somehow protect his book from the lashes and whips of liquid that threatened to taint and forever ruin the story. Eventually the woman came to notice his presence (mostly with the help of his voice, it was almost unbearable how oblivious some people could be) and instead of meekly apologizing and stopping at once as he had hoped, she began towards him.

An alarm buzzed in his mind and his first instinct was to hide the book, protect it from this seemingly excitable and girlish and potentially very stupid woman. Quickly, he shoved it underneath the pile of his clothing just in time so that when she appeared a very small number of feet away from him, none of the water that had parted to make way for her caught onto the pages of his precious novel.

Her greeting was pitchy and she blinked with large doll-like eyes as if completely unaware of the stark annoyance that coated Kieran's face. Her words gushed and her body screamed for attention, for his eyes to stare and ogle and be pulled in as if she were a magnet drawing him towards her. Under no ordinary circumstances would he find himself so pulled towards someone but he was a male after all and he couldn't help but notice the bends and curves of her body.

“Ah – too close!” Snapping back to reality, Kieran's face briefly flushed a soft pink before he, with a bit more force than would have been absolutely necessary, thrust both arms out and pushed the curly haired woman away.

It was, embarrassingly enough, an action that he had made that he had not thought so much into; an impulse. It had not crossed his mind what would happen if perhaps the woman fell, or if he created an even bigger splash and mess, the only thing he had been thinking was to get her away from him.

He seemed uncomfortable as she drew closer to him. Curious, most guys liked it when she batted her lashes and smiled just right, in that innocent but coy way. Goddess, you'd think he had never met a woman, the way he had begun to press back against the edge of the water. It's not as if she had leprosy or some horrifying disfigurement and her breath couldn't be bad, she had been chewing cinnamon gum in a mediocre attempt to warm up on the way over!

Suddenly, he flung his arms out and hitting her shoulders, shoved her away. She didn't even comprehend what he had shouted, she was too stunned. Feet stumbling backwards on the smooth pools bottom, she tripped, slipping under the hot water, leaving a Ayanna-sized amount of white foam and bubbles in her wake. Ayanna clenched her eyes closed against the heat and placing her palms on the smooth bottom, propelled herself up.

She resurfaced angrily, her brown hair drenched, bangs sticking to her face and hanging in her eyes. This was so... infuriating! First there was the man she had met in the forest who seemed no into her and now there was another one here?! There was only one logical explanation! The way he had pushed her away, his face getting pinker in a most embarrassed manner... She wiped her hair away from her eyes and whined loudly, "Goddess! What's the deal with all these gay guys in this town?!".

With his mind slowly un-clouding and his thoughts starting to surface over the rashness of his prior action, Kieran watched the bold brown-haired girl come out of the water with his eyes wide as if she were something from a horror movie. He was trapped, his legs turned to stone and she was the swamp monster with the hair of a thousand snakes that was going to slowly come out and tear him apart with a lullaby-like voice that would cause him to drift into deep slumber and when that moment came, she would kill him.

Perhaps he was getting his mythical creatures and stories just a tad bit jumbled up.

It was a sign that all was not well in the various ladders and tunnels, the many straight and flat roads that designed Kieran's logical mind. He was unprepared for whatever the female was going to do next; force herself on him once again? Scream at him for assaulting a woman? Run away crying? He hoped and prayed to every goddess and god he could think of (both imaginary and fake) that it would be the last one.

Instead, she shouted something at him about...

Gay?

His whole face seemed to have dropped, melting into some sort of silent shock. For once, not a single thought was able to travel through his mind as if the roads had been blocked off and some sort of earthquake had just torn apart every foundation and concrete linear path that he knew. Finally, he managed to stutter “I- I'm not gay!” Of course he wasn't! He hated everyone, but when it boiled down to it, he was physically attracted to women.

After all, he had been admiring at the perfect curvature of her body only moments before – but it wasn't like he could use that argument in his defense.

His whole composure had changed and he stood, gaping like some sort of fish out of water, unable to do anything except stare and gasp for breath as it flopped around. He seemed to be unable to speak - his entire face had gone lax and his eyes eerily wide. Oh gosh, had she outed him? Was this town really that backwards and unreceptive to the gay community? Ayanna felt pretty bad now - she would be unable to contain her guilt if he ended up losing his job. Poor guy... all ostracized from the rest of the town and it was all her fault for not keeping her big mouth shut.

His sudden rediscovery of how to speak caused Ayanna to look back up, shaken out of her guilt trip. ...He wasn't gay?!

All traces of guilt and regret instantly gone, Ayanna put her hands on her hips and leaned back toward him. Her annoyance and confusion flowed back in like the the heat rising from the water they stood it. In a snappish voice, she said, "Well, then, what's your problem?! I'm obviously pretty and nice enough to talk to you. And then you have to go and be totally rude and shove me for saying hello."

She removed her hands from her hip, and tried to wring out her still soaking wet hair. Now that she was drenched, the icy cold wasn't feeling as nice a contrast as it did before. And it was all this boorish guy's fault! Ugh, maybe this valley was just full of jerks.
