炭狐 Charcoal Fox

Currently Inactive

My name is Tan Hu, or just Tan seems to be easier. I am a fire-type demon fox. Would you care for some tea?

Squirrels in the Park

quietsilverfox:

Hardly believing the sight, Kairo stood there silently for a minute, ears flicking forward, all her seven tails swaying low. (Two more than she had last time she saw Tan). When the other had attempted to hurry off, Kairo herself began towards her.

"Tan, wait—" She reached to her, jogging to catch up, taking hold of her arm. "Tan, I know it’s you… your energy and scent are unmistakable.. what’s with the sudden avoidance?" She frowned, moving to stand in front of the woman, emerald eyes attempting to meet Tan’s.

"Gods, I—-" She wanted to say more, but stopped herself, waiting for the other fox to respond, letting go slowly of her arm. 

The fox woman froze again when her old friend touched her arm. Kai came around to look her in the eyes, but Tan refused to meet. She couldn’t lie, no when she was this close to her. There was no way to trick her into believing her. Instead, she made a 180 degree change on the subject.

"Chilly tonight, isn’t it?" she asked, almost cheerfully, although entirely cosmetically so. "Do you know what I think would be good? Waffles. Waffles and a coffee. Nothing better than a nice coffee in the middle of the night," she rambled on. "There’s a place right down the street that we can go, I’ll pay."

And with that, she began striding off again. Kai would follow her, she was 90% sure she would. She’d probably ask questions too. Tan wouldn’t make eye contact, though- or answer. Not until they were inside the cafe at least.

Squirrels in the Park

quietsilverfox:

It had been a full day since Kairo had returned from her honeymoon. Nearly 8 blissful days as newlyweds with Tony. The return to New York was surreal, back to their lives, their family… The day had been met with her handling Jack again, trying to keep him from biting anybody or anything and climbing things, while Lia happily showed that she was able to read a word or two.

The night arrived, and she couldn’t really sleep. She figured Tony was still down at the shop, and had a message relayed to his monitor so he’d know she stepped out for a bit. A walk out in nature always helped.

 She always felt drawn to the park she used to hunt at, in what felt like lifetimes ago. The area was mostly abandoned, save for a few panicked University students here and there scrambling to get home. She smiled at a couple, warmly, to reassure them, and went on her way.

That was until she sensed a presence. Her seven tails bristled at the familiarity, and she hurried, following the scent. There was no way…

She closed the distance and saw her, sitting on a bench, surrounded by squirrels. The other fox stood finally, and spotted Kairo.

"Tan.." Kairo murmured, stunned at the sight of her old friend there, alive and well. "Gods, you’re… you’re really here."

Tan froze mid-step and stammered. She stuttered and struggled for words like a kid caught stealing from the candy store for the first time. This wasn’t supposed to happen. She was supposed to check up on them for her peace of mind and then go home. Or anywhere that wasn’t in New York. She knew this was a bad idea.

And suddenly, everything shut down. Her thoughts became stuck, but more importantly, she couldn’t differentiate the scents that might as well have been screaming her face. It was Kai, standing there right in front of her. She used to be able to tell what the woman was thinking without the giveaway of the subtle hormones that people were always giving off, but here she was and she couldn’t tell what she was thinking or feeling. Was she angry? Was she upset? She wouldn’t be happy, surely. Not after disappearing on her time and time again. Who would be happy to see someone who did that?

"Uh… I-" Tan swallowed, attempting to calm her nerves. "I’m not- … You’ve got the wrong person, sorry," she blurted out moronically before swiftly turning in the opposite direction and striding away. She knew she couldn’t portal away, that’d give her away. Maybe she could find a shop or something to hide in.

Squirrels in the Park

It was nearing midnight as Tan sat in the park by herself. She had been slowly chewing on a small packet of mixed nuts that had caught the attention of the local residents- squirrels to be precise. The park wasn’t too far from her friends’ place, if they could even be called that any more. What do you call friends who you haven’t interacted with for the good half of a year? Old friends? Ex-friends? Or just acquaintances?

She’d walked past Cheryl’s on her way here, stopping very briefly to listen in. She didn’t actually pay attention to what they were saying- just making sure they all sounded okay. There were a couple new voices, nothing Tan hadn’t been expecting, and they all sounded happy, so she moved on.

Back, alone in the park, save for the few furry rodents who had gathered around to puppy-eye, guilt-trip her into giving away her nuts (but not the macadamias or pistachios, she loved those), she wondered if they remembered her. She wondered if they were glad she wasn’t around any more. She wondered if they missed her. She heaved a sigh and stood, patting off the crumbs on her coat and knowing that she likely wouldn’t ever find out. She turned on her heel, to head home and found herself face to face with someone she hadn’t been expecting to see.

Your character overhears someone calling mine ‘a slut’, what does your character do?

OOC

I realise this is kinda weird of me to be coming back after I made a million notices about how I was shutting this character down, but truth be told, I kinda miss her a lot and I miss her interactions even more. This is just me hoping to get a couple little chatty things going on if anyone’s interested, a little more if I’m lucky. So… anyone up for a starter…?

PSA: Hello Friends

tanhu:

Due to high unpopularity, I will be putting Tan away as a roleplay character. She will be archived for personal sentiment reasons, but I don’t think it’s really important to be announcing this because she doesn’t get any attention nowadays anyway.

If we have an unfinished thread and you’d like to finish it, I am willing to do that, but I will not be starting anything new. There is a chance that I may have extreme cravings to write more with Tan in the future, in which case I will return and start over, but for now, the decision’s pretty solid.

Thank you for a lovely year. You’ve all been incredible friends and I am sad to be loosing you, but I suppose that’s what happens sometimes. Thanks for putting up with me and stuff.

[…But— T— what?]

//My deepest apologies. I’m just finding that I don’t have the confidence to write her character publicly anymore and I feel that many people see her as an Avatar mary-sue rip-off. I’ve had more than a few complaints in the past regarding that so yeah. She’s a pretty unpopular character anyway. I’ve only ever finished one thread with her and I don’t want to seem like one of those whiney rpers who only rp for ships, but she’s never had a love interest either (or a best friend for that matter) and it kinda irritates me that she’s never been close enough to anyone to develop feelings like that, especially since she’s pretty emotionally dependant on others. But I suppose I’m just whining anyway.

Moving on, if you’d like, I’m willing to continue our thread (regardless of how long it may take) since I really adore it but if you don’t want to, that’s alright too.
