The Fallen Leaves [NOOK Book]

Sixteen years after the date of Mr. Ronald's disastrous discovery at Ramsgate—that is to say, in the year 1872—the steamship Aquila left the port of New York, bound for Liverpool.
It was the month of September. The passenger-list of the Aquila had comparatively few names inscribed on it. In the autumn season, the voyage from America to England, but for the remunerative value of the cargo, would prove to be for the most part a profitless voyage to shipowners. The flow of ...

Overview

Sixteen years after the date of Mr. Ronald's disastrous discovery at Ramsgate—that is to say, in the year 1872—the steamship Aquila left the port of New York, bound for Liverpool.
It was the month of September. The passenger-list of the Aquila had comparatively few names inscribed on it. In the autumn season, the voyage from America to England, but for the remunerative value of the cargo, would prove to be for the most part a profitless voyage to shipowners. The flow of passengers, at that time of year, sets steadily the other way. Americans are returning from Europe to their own country. Tourists have delayed the voyage until the fierce August heat of the United States has subsided, and the delicious Indian summer is ready to welcome them. At bed and board the passengers by the Aquila on her homeward voyage had plenty of room, and the choicest morsels for everybody alike on the well spread dinner-table.
The wind was favourable, the weather was lovely. Cheerfulness and good-humour pervaded the ship from stem to stern. The courteous captain did the honours of the cabin-table with the air of a gentleman who was receiving friends in his own house. The handsome doctor promenaded the deck arm-in-arm with ladies in course of rapid recovery from the first gastric consequences of travelling by sea. The excellent chief engineer, musical in his leisure moments to his fingers' ends, played the fiddle in his cabin, accompanied on the flute by that young Apollo of the Atlantic trade, the steward's mate. Only on the third morning of the voyage was the harmony on board the Aquila disturbed by a passing moment of discord—due to an unexpected addition to the ranks of the passengers, in the shape of a lost bird!

    City-nowhere near. How about a village? It'll be easier to find Missing and Deercloud (and Aeget and Kagero) near a village than a city. Also, can you go to "grasslands" second result and explain their part in this please? I'm gonna forget before I finish typing knowing my memory :D we're in the first result if you feel like stalking us. Who is rping the kittypet? Christmas music sucks. Panda can't attack all the Clans. Down like four members now. Arget, Kag, Jay, Missing all either gone or inactive. Sunday, not gonna even be in state so update me on what actually happens please. I'll try to be on Friday but no promises. Tomorrow is insane so I'll be on when I can, likely just that evening. Thursday you can expect me in the evening. Dont know anything more. Might end up working on my stary though in the coming nights, and the guide again.

    Also, never read that series. I know DF is inactive, I rp there, but the 17th (when I'd last posted there) was when I was last active. I'm working on finding a few new peeps when I can. I'm trying to drop off some non-Pact Clan rps first. Minus Pandemonium obviously. And it was actually not thought out at all. I made this decision minutes before finding somewhere to write that. Wrote it on the fly. Guessing I did a good job using rhetoric if it was this effective. Also, if you REALLY want to know where Pandemonium is (it's just a camp for the actual members though) I can tell you. Everything at "panda fall" was, however, well thought out. And I'll eventually fix up the typing errors. Also, there are challenges that they can try to achieve for special titles. Maybe holding a member for xyz days can be part of some of them or something. I haven't fully set up the challenges themselves yet. And maybe this time I addressed everything you writ...~Rosepetal &hearts~

    Lol a V! Ooo! Haha that'll be interesting. And yes that will work. She could be desperately running after the truck and meet them in her race. And Mouse and I have yet to decide with the kittypet though she probably will. There will be a few kittypets but only one will help Goldenstar home. Hey where is Bloodclan? I can find Shell there right? ~ Lilywolf &hearts

    Okay. It's fine :D It may not be far for you, but Missing and company are in the middle of nowhere. They would never find a city where they are; they'd be walking fo weeks! Lol. Maybe as you leave the town to follow Goldenstar, hopefully not after being thrown out of a car, Deercloud and the rest can find you. Of course, they'd be all confused. And it's no triangle. Two toms like the same gal so it'd be a love "V." But yes, that's what's already happening. Not that Seafire knows yet.

    Yeah, a "V." Nobody would be making a triangle with two toms. Unless it was Dar...anyway, okay, I thought she might. ^^ Chasing a monster sounds like something you'd do. The stuff you two go through is just sad. And BloodClan is at "canterbury tale" or something like that. I have the worst memory. She might not be on for a bit of time. She has a limited wifi connection (aka none) at home. Just check occasionally. She did not listen to me at all I noticed -_- so she thinks it's impossible to join. I gave up and disappeared before we argued again. Btw, cleaning so off and on today.

    Disbanding? Pft. No. You didn't read Missing's post obviously! He left, with Deer. Kag convinced Arg to follow him with Missing. Party of four now. And Demi has been inactive awhile. I'll talk to Mynt about that though.
