Aurielle Adravendi

She took a seat with a pile of parchment rolls, waiting expectantly for those who wished to learn more about writing and reading. After the lesson with Rhaegara and Aslaug, she’d left the two women with what amounted to homework, and she looked forward to seeing what they’d produced from the writing practices she’d set up for them.

A thought had niggled with her since her talk with Drachen, and she set that thought aside as she waited, and heard the first tread of paws on the sandy ground outside, coming up the ravine.

She smiled faintly, setting out the sets of parchment with room and extras for any others that joined. As the pawsteps came up the steps she said, “Feel free to take a spot and parchment to look over while the others come. Once it looks like everyone who will come has arrived, we’ll start the lesson.”

At first glance, Aurielle's coat is pure white.. Her fur has an iridescent quality (like moonstones) where the fur shimmers different colors under various angles of light: in this case, the colors shown by rainbow moonstones. Not one hair on her hide is a solid unnatural color, but, ya know, it's really hard to convey that in still art :P
Aurielle's English is heavily laden with an Irish, Swedish mixed accent.
Her family is allowed to crash all her threads, Private and Open.
As of Autumn Year 14, Aurielle glows with a bright blue-white bio-luminescence in her fur, and bears a marking over her left eye - see profile and reference.

The prospect of a lesson was an interesting one for Caelia. She hadn't been the most terribly motivated wolf as of late, but her focus had generally been on fighting - from the few practice spars she'd had as well as the raid they'd participated in. She had no doubt that there were other skills she ought to work on growing, so when Aurielle's call rang out she was quick to respond to it, loping gracefully across the plains to come to meet her. No one else had arrived yet, but she hoped there would be others joining them. She cast Aurielle a glance and a small smile as she approached, doing as she was instructed and fetching a parchment set for herself before finding a comfortable spot to settle down and wait.

Aurielle Adravendi

It seemed Caelia would be the only participant to begin with today, and so, Aurielle turned and settled with her own parchment, nudging the sheet of parchment with the runes and scripts she’d developed with help to Caelia.

“These are what I’ve worked out for Valhallan script. With luck, all of Valhalla will eventually know it.”

Once Caelia had looked them over, Aurielle ran her through the alphabet, pointing out each letter to indicate them as she went.

“Writing can be a little difficult with normal paws; it takes a lot of control to keep the strokes steady and not twitch and send a streak of ink everywhere—believe me, I should know.” She grinned at the younger woman, thinking about her own early attempts.

“If you hold the end of the ink-stick in your teeth and slot it between the toes of your dominant paw, it helps. Do get an idea, why don’t you try drawing shapes?”

She herself demonstrated the technique, choosing a circle and carefully tracing the shape with a sweeping gesture of her paw and the ink-soaked stick slotted between the two innermost toes of her right paw.

“If ever you befriend a primate or a bird, they tend to have a much easier time of writing than typical wolves do. Ardyn and Aoife, with their paws, are quite deft at it. Have you heard Aoife play her lute yet?”

Conversation went paw in paw with the lesson, helping it become more casual and less formal. She liked it when Caelia was able to relax. Perhaps she ought to spar her again—it was long past due time.
