Late Cinco de Mayo

I realized the Day of the Dead had passed. I was planning to do a thing for that involving the dead dergs but moving out of my dorm made me forget. Looking at the date reminded me of it today. Ugh…

Might still do the story bit that I had planned. We’ll see…

So, I discovered that if you look at your babies that you exalted, they’ll show them grown up as if they were still alive! So I thought I’d showcase and honor our fallen, both to the nest coin flip and to the Coliseum.

NEST DEATHS

1 - Fluen

Safe and Zone’s firstborn son, brother of Kanker and Pox. He perished on Day 6 alongside his siblings from the plague. He would’ve been a responsible older brother, kind and lenient to his siblings. Zone would’ve been proud of him.

2 - Kanker

Safe and Zone’s firstborn daughter, sister to Fluen and Pox. She perished on Day 6 alongside her brothers due to the plague. She would’ve been brash and reckless, a fighter to the end over anything and everything worth fighting over, yet her love for her siblings ran deep. Safe would’ve probably been concerned for her most of the time.

3 - Pox

Safe and Zone’s second-born son, brother to Fluen and Kanker. He perished on Day 6 alongside his siblings due to the plague. Being the only Mirror in the nest would’ve been him the odd one out, prone to falling behind and being teased the worst, but his siblings would’ve balanced their cruelty with endless love for the clever little Mirror. Safe would’ve smothered him the most with love, most likely.

4 - Cad

Safe and Zone’s firstborn son in the second nest, brother to Betes and Losis. He perished on Day 21 due to the plague. He likely would’ve been the dutiful brother that kept Losis from wandering away into trouble and prevented Betes from losing her faith. Safe and Zone would’ve been very proud of him for his work if he had survived.

5 - Cella

Safe and Zone’s firstborn daughter in the fourth nest, sister to Tussis and Rube. She perished on Day 51 alongside her sister Rube due to the plague. She would’ve been a wild child, prone to spontaneous bursts of energy and an insatiable urge to go adventuring on her own. Safe probably would’ve spent much time panicking over her whereabouts.

6 - Rube

Safe and Zone’s second-born daughter in the fourth nest, sister of Cella and Tussis. She perished on Day 51 alongside her sister Cella due to the plague. She would’ve been the quiet, wise younger sister that focused on keeping their mother from suffering too much from the deaths in their family. Zone would’ve been very grateful for the extra help.

7 - Zaire

Winse and Betes’ second-born son in the second nest, brother of Matous and Herp. He perished on Day 56 alongside his brother Herp due to the plague. He would’ve been a spitfire, constantly fighting with his mother and defending his siblings–especially older brother Malar from the first nest–from the world and its cruelties, like the hero he would’ve believed himself to be. Winse would’ve loved him greatly.

8 - Herp

Winse and Betes third-born son from the second nest, brother to Matous and Zaire. He perished on Day 56 alongside his brother Zaire due to the plague. He would’ve been a bit lazy, slow in movement and thought, but very caring toward those around him to the point of aggravation. Winse would’ve loved him and smothered him.

9 - Cepha

Lymph and Leth’s firstborn son, brother to Rabi and Boni. He perished on Day 38 alongside his sister Boni due to the plague. He would’ve been an eerily responsible, if a bit possessive, older brother who wouldn’t take threats–implied or otherwise–very well toward his family, Rabi most of all. Lymph and Safe probably would’ve been concerned about his behavior toward others outside of their family.

10 - Boni

Lymph and Leth’s firstborn daughter, sister to Cepha and Rabi. She perished on Day 38 alongside her brother Cepha. She would’ve been fascinated by the wastelands and death around her to the point of obsession, reveling in the plague in a frightening manner. Lymph and Leth absolutely would’ve been concerned for her mental state.

COLISEUM DEATHS

11 - Pizzicato

He was found in the wastes of the Wandering Contagion along with Malihini and Winse by Zone on Day 6 after the first nest failed to produce living young. Pizzicato was an unfortunate victim of the Day 13 massacre alongside his adopted sisters, Bola and Malihini. He was the first to die during the first battle in Woodland Path. He was loyal and energetic, full of life. Winse carries the guilt for his death with him to this day.

12 - Bola

Her egg was found in Wind territory after Zone fled Plague territory to escape from the knowledge that his first nest with Safe ended in failure. She hatched upon returning to the lair. Bola was an unfortunate victim of the Day 13 massacre alongside her adopted siblings, Pizzicato and Malihini. She was the second to die during the fifth battle in Woodland Path. She was happy and knew no end to love and life. Safe loved her dearly. Winse carries the guilt for her death with him to this day.

13 - Malihini

She was found in the wastes of the Wandering Contagion along with Pizzicato and Winse by Zone on Day 6 after the first nest failed to produce living young. Malihini was an unfortunate victim of the Day 13 massacre alongside her adopted siblings, Pizzicato and Bola. She was the last to die during the fifth battle in Woodland Path, only seconds after Bola died. She was pushy and headstrong, always vying to be the leader. Winse carries the guilt for her death with him to this day.
