Re: Lookout from the Towers #1

4 Cylus 720 | Mathias Blackwood | Storm's Edge: Lookout Tower
Mathias was glad that Cole had accepted what he said and not pried further. He was fairly good at avoiding telling people what his work was and part of him wondered if he should be doing the work if he couldn't be proud of it. Maybe he should turn back to carpentry? Or maybe learn to make bows? Despite the slightly distracted thoughts, when Yrmellyn went back to dousing, Mathias peeked through the telescope once more. He saw the same rocks and brush he'd seen since they started though now his cheeks were getting unpleasantly cold and the telescope was not helping.

"I think it's all about perspective." Mathias said, his tone making it hard to tell if he was serious or joking. "I mean, even if you're being pursued, you get to see a lot of cool stuff along the way- and you get to refine your skills... granted that's not really a choice. Survival and all." His voice trailed off towards the end of his sentence and Mathias shook his head as if to cast the thoughts away. When Yrmellyn proposed that they head down and let the knights take over the watch, Mathias nodded. He had no issue letting someone else freeze atop the tower while he found something warmer to do in the rest of Storm's Edge. He was relieved that Yrmellyn had suggested it because he had been growing a little bored by the lack of attacks... not that he was particularly aching to have those frog monsters attack Storm's Edge again.

"I don't think I'd make a great statue so sure, lets get out of here." Mathias said, turning once more to make sure the Lightning Knights were still there and that it wasn't some delusion caused by the cold. Mathias held Yrmellyn's telescope out to her- he assumed it was hers and not the knights'. Whether she took it or not, he'd follow her down into the keep to get warm.

This was a terribly interesting thread to me. I've not read too many uses of Attunement, but this was by far the most detailed and yet easy to read Attunement use I've ever had the pleasure to read. I enjoyed seeing Yrmellyn's inner thoughts of disapproval at the various things (particularly Mathias' lack of a telescope). Mathias is a breath of fresh air and provides a bit of a dichotomy alongside Yrmellyn. Yrmellyn comes off, in the best of ways, as serious and realistic, and Mathias a bit more freewheeling. Together, they make a great pair. I look forward to seeing more of you both together. Well done.
