Family and a Close FriendStarted by Rakaia Snowdawn at Dec 02, 2019 2:46 am
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
The Snowdawn family have served in the royal guard since the family were founded, and nowadays that's the Linaesin. Rakaia's gotten pretty far in it, so is kind of a star child for the moment, but should also have several younger siblings. Rakaia's family might've wanted all of the Snowdawn children to go into the military at the very least, but Rakaia was more like, "Basically, do what makes you happy, because the gods know you'll die your own death; may as well live your own life." Much to the Snowdawn elders' chagrin, but frankly Rakaia wasn't asking... so there's a lotta wiggle room to do whatever you want here.
Fellow Linaesin Friend
So I had an idea that someone else in the Linaesin was expecting at the same time Rakaia was, and they kind of bonded over the varying weirdness of these experiences. Linaesin aren't really expected to live very long, and sometimes aren't really expected to have children either, so it was sort of a surprise for them both and they had a few challenges balancing starting a family and being military at the same time. So they kind of needed one another to help each other deal with the ups and downs without being like oh my god what the fuck all the time. xD Idk, random idea that sounded kinda neat.
