Simple Gifts cocked her head and looked at the pink buck, wondering which pile was his. There were plenty of piles to go around. The last one was lovely-smelling; the little sachet of soothing herbs tickled the nose in a very pleasing way.

"I eat plants, mostly! Though I've started hunting more lately, although... I don't like the killing part of it. Don't get me wrong, I love the chasing, the feel of earth under your pa-hooves, I mean. But I don't get excited about what happens after. I don't follow through, most of the time. I'd much rather eat vegetables or graze. Cattails are really good. Those are probably my favorite. How about you- what's your favorite thing to eat? Do you like hunting?"

That was a lot of answer! She liked plants... cattails. and chasing? What did he like. "Bugs." Was his quick reply. But there was more! "Caterpillars. Juicy... sometimes fuzzy. Sometimes make you sick. Grasshoppers better. Good crunch if you don't mind legs. Not caveworms. Too big. Don't like hunting." He shook his head.

Dragonheart was surprised someone spoke to him immediately. He had presumed he would come across as far too intimidating and would have to do the hard work himself but the doe with shaggy hooves was quick to bombard anyone in her vicinity with questions. How annoying.

His mouth turned down, especially irritated she hadn't chosen to speak to him first and replied dismissively, "I don't like flowers at all." @Tara de Draiocht

And instead of asking her anything in return he turned towards a pudgy sickly-coloured Acha and asked, " do you have... a favourite animal?" because that seemed like a safe sort of question. Better than 'why do you look like a giant bruise?' which wouldn't have helped the game at all. @Dawns_Stars145

Corrosive walked close to the bundle, taking in the items. Hemlock was an interesting choice, not so much as the ear and the shriveled heart. She had an idea of who's those could be. Perhaps, though it seemed a bit on the nose. She looked over the bones, small animals mostly, but also a number of sea life. She gave a thoughtful noise.

"Do any herbs or flowers have any significant meaning for the Fairie Court," she asked King of Shadows.

Hole Dweller felt her ears droop a little bit at the tone of the male buck with the dragons tail and how he dismissed her quite rudely. "Oh.. okay then." Her first time in the game was not going well at all. It would appear she messed up already. Biting her lip Dwell backed a way a bit and eyed the other two kin fearing they too would respond in the same manner. 

Maybe it was best that she found out right away that the buck with the dragon tail responded to questions in such away. It was a lesson that helped made her realize avoiding him would be best.
I hope you find your peace
RIP Grandparents and Uncle

Hidden Beauty looked over to the doe that asked her a question almost right away. She hadn’t expected it and was slightly surprised. “My favorite season is early summer. Do you like feathers?” @Tara de Draiocht

Hidden Beauty squinted at the piles, noticing a few things. She glanced around at the others after and chose a rather large looking acha to question, then asked “You wouldn’t happen to have recently eaten part of a chicken, would you?” She figured logically that a kin of such size was probably snacking before they headed in this direction and that the food had ended up in their pile. @Dawns_Stars145

Mud Bath looked over all the present piles, in what he thought could perhaps be the best game, where to win you had to look at things, and talk to kin, and do absolutely zero obstacle courses.

He thought he had the beginnings of a guess, just from one of the piles sort of radiating a very fetching amount of despair.

"No Escape, you said?" Bath said. He was rather good with names. "The MotherFather gifted you a bit of...err, a dreary name, didn't they?" he asked, but his voice was all approval. "How do you feel about dead things, generally?"

Dances was, for the moment, listening, considering who was around, who to approach and what to say to whoever he spoke to. He noticed the grumpy buck's abrasive response and rejection of the pink doe with the leaf markings... What was such a one here for, he wondered? Did he not understand that the purpose was to mingle, to speak and to learn about one another? But that question was not really the point of this game, either, so he refocused.

After a moment, he went up to a pink doe with fluffy pink hair, and smiled at her. ( @AMItotic ) "I was wondering, have you a pet, or a favorite species of pet? Or familiar, for that matter."

He wondered if it was a bit too much, but it felt like the right thing to ask.

A female voice brought her back to present. Thankfully a question was answered and Dwell felt confident to respond. She really needed to work on gaining a backbone around strangers. Bring out her spice as her mother always said before her passing. "Oh, summer you say? Hmm yes I can see that in a way. Feathers are alright, not really my thing though. Oh and how rude of me! Let me reintroduce myself. I am Hole Dweller and you are?" Now that she had the attention of another player of this game she only felt it right to ask another question. " If you don't mind another question... Do you collect anything?" @Nashawryn

Above Heartache watched as new kin joined the group already there. Some looked familiar and "Oh, hello!" She looked at the acha who spoke. "Perhaps? Or mayhap another of my line?" She smiles at the thought one of her babies looking like her.
Well, since they should be asking questions, "What is something you really enjoy seeing?" The piles being diverse enough, along with the kin, Above wasn't sure what to ask. "Oh my manners, I am Above Heartache. And you?"

Treasure Hunter looked at the various bundles, and then to the various kin, trying to work out who might belong to what. He turned to Set after a long moment, and addressed her. "Do you have any kids?" @Blinded By Silence

Set smiled politely as she drank in as much information as she could about the kin around her. So many Kimeti and Acha! Only a single Totoma and one Kiokote, though? That surprised her almost as much as the complete lack of Zikwa. Most seemed amicable, friendly too, though a few were standoffish and nervous. It was her first instinct to want to assist, especially with the sweet heart Hole Dweller, but before she could step forward, the pink doe seemed to jump right in excitedly. How fun!

Where the Sun Sleeps looked around at the now open parcels instead of jumping right into questioning. There were many plants and bits of food. She wrinkled her nose at the half-eaten meat. Someone came ill-prepared, she assumed, right from Rise and Shine's booth, from the looks of it. The collection of bones and--my word was that an EAR?!--other distasteful things made her wonder about the kin she was in company with. Shuddering, she looked on. Two sight stones, she noted, curiously. And so many feathers!

She was standing over the piles when the Totoma approached her, "Oh, hello! Treasure Hunter, if I remember correctly?" She lowered her head in greeting, eyeing the buck. He was very different from her son, encrusted in small gems and bearing the eye patch of the desert born, "None of my own," She admitted softly, "But I do call myself mother to two foundlings, yes. And you?"

Her pale eyes flickered over the bundles, many things glitered in the weak, watery sunlight, "What kind of treasures do you hunt for, if I may ask?"

"You're right!" he grinned at the doe for remembering his name, and nodded his head as he listened. "Foundlings?" a curious note from him then. "You found kids?" well not unusual he was aware. "It sounds like you found your own sorts of treasure finding them."

One way to look at it. Though he grinned. "Any kind. When I was young, it was a stick. As I grew it became things like one of my brothers lost birds, or a specific food another kin wanted. If you're looking for a treasure, or lost one, I'm your buck to find it!"

"Oh yes, they gave me quite the fright, finding them. My daughter, she's an Acha named Little Brook. I found her egg in a half-frozen rivulet not far from my home! Guards the Herd, he was found later, the little lamb. I didn't know Totoma could earn their names so young, he's very impressive. A good boy." She chuckled and waved her tail dismissively, "But enough about me!"

A stick, he said? She looked over the bundles once more, "Do you have a favorite food? There's quite a bit of that here."

Her words made him perk up a little, and he looked over the bundles again with a smile. He had an idea which was hers. "Don't think I've ever heard of a kin adopting others different from them." but then he wasn't sure just how common or not that was. "Oh yes! I love fruit, and meat especially when I can eat them together!" he shifted a little, looking around at the others around them talking, before back to her. "Dried foods are great to take along with you when you're busy hunting for things, so I try to keep some with me anytime I'm away from home." finally though he leaned in and there a "I think that one there, might just be yours?" he nodded towards the first pile then.

I guess that pile #1 belongs to Where the Sun Sleeps!
