Gran-air, the first group of runaway travellers, included people of various social background and races.
According to the official citizen ranking table of Yüv,
the society was split into following classes:

High Upper
Middle Upper
Lower Upper

High Middle
Lower Middle

High Lower
Middle Lower

Marginals and outcasts were not considered as a rank and thus ignored by official statistics and census.

Major Races populating Yüv as of year of koor epoch:

There's a tense moment between Viroka and Nax in the Women Camp, when Nax's disciple Asin"Li runs into Viroka's tent and interrupts her while she was talking to the other women.
Maniiv gets furious and she rises her hand to slap the girl on her face, knowing that Nax is watching them.

"...get the grip and keep your distance"
Those are the words Nax had once said to young Haromin Viroka, back to their Haeleges life in the 7th Round.

Naghill came to talk to Hoza and was met by his 9-year-old daughter,
who was excited to see her and ran to hug her with wide-spread arms, happily screaming, and was punished for this "inappropriate behaviour":
she gave her a sound slap and told her off in her cold, stern manner, with a desired effect - Romi didn't talk or touch Nax.
This incident wasn't left unnoticed by Romi's mother. Maniiv saw the scene and confronted Nax, as fierce as a mother protecting her cub could be.
From that day on she refused to stay in the same room with Naghill and avoided her, warning her that if she ever lays her finger on Romi, there'll be a duel and there'll be blood.
They remained distant until the Dallan Has (The Great Fire) festival, when Llava's arrival had helped to break the ice between them.

Synopsis: While exploring the Passage, Naghill falls into yet another hole to wake up in a painfully familiar place. She realizes she is back to the years of her youth, meeting the people she had long forgotten. She joins the street race to a bet for her friends and it ends up in an unexpected way.


Them? It's unbelievable.
If they are here, it means I'm twenty again?
And this place must be Yuv.
-C'mon, Varae, it's about to start!
-Don't let us down, the bet is huge.
-She won't, if she doesn't want to do a dance while mooning in all the citizens faces.
Oh, great. The race. Of course, that summer afternoon when I had to save my dignity, or whatever it was, by winning a street run.
My legs felt soft, as we walked through the narrow side street towards the park square.
I cursed myself for being so reckless and dumb, I dare my moron mates, and now I have to run in a few minutes, but I felt I won't make it.
-you've got all the chances, Nahhi. Look at those slugs, pathetic. Go get'm.
-Oi, check out this (race name) cutie! - he whistled, eyeing a girl who stood by the start line. I couldn't see her face, but she certainly was a boy-magnet, with her long legs, tight school uniform (way to short for that obviously ripe teenager) and shiny dark hair. Definitely a slut, I thought with slight contempt, when she turned her head, with that sparkling smile, the one you won't mistake for someone else's.
-...l'right, I gotta tell ya, you pay me twice.
-Pay 10 gras for a chick flashin' her knickers?
-Hit it or quit it, you knucklehead.
-oi, get ya cash ready. She is so bendable, so bend she will. - The voice behind us belonged to a freckled kid, grinning slyly as he set his eyes on the girl's skirt.
God help me. Is this ginger who I think he is?
He is so bloody small! Of course, if I'm twenty-two, then he is... ten?
And her?
I was pulled from the pile of my bewildered thoughts by my mates, who were cheering and taunting me, excited in anticipation of their probable victory.
-the last runners are joining us - shouted the megaphone above our heads. - Hurry up, young man!

We all had met before! Without knowing each other, we'd been there together, in one place.

The city on the shore of the Winter Sea in the northern lands of a realm the Daenair encountered during their 5th Round of respawns.
The city that became the undoing of the Six, a hungry beast with particular taste for the girar souls.
Rumas had left a permanent imprint in Hjotennir's yah, as the male girars tend to be more vulnerable to the influence of the cities, which can cause dramatic changes in their personality and behavior.
Staying in Rumas for over two months made Hoza impatient, gloomy and obsessed with his unreleased ideas.
His condition was worsened after he had intoxication from drinking infamous Vaïl-Roch liquor. The mixture had unleashed his suppressed subconscious frustration, weakened his self-control and allowed Rumas to turn Hoza against his biggest trouble - Viroka, and Viroka was the one Rumas truly desired to be destroyed.
Why would this city be so hostile toward a girar who spoke to it?
The reason was Maniiv's resistance and constant urging others to leave the city as soon as possible, as well as her gender.
The city of Rumas appeared to be quite a misogynistic creature.
The elder women of Daenair confirmed their health and mental condition were dreadful during the stay. However, neither Sandaraen, nor Hyffes were affected much, this could be explained by the fact that Ke is generally "numb and deaf" when it comes to interactions with the cities' souls. Llava, on the other hand, had always been extremely cautious and self-protective, ensuring the imapct on his yah is minimal.

Maniiv during 6-8th Circles.
She grew stronger and sadder, with heart full of bitter memories and bile. She wanted to be like Nax, she did better than Nax - by becoming much more sarcastic and vile, more violent, uncompromising, cruel and lonely than Nax could do.

However, in an alternate parallel probability, she matures in harmony, becoming feminine and attractive.

No hedgehogs were harmed!
We love hedgehogs.
Seriously, we do.
Yes, we ate one back to the Zero Round, but in our defense we were in the wild starving, and the poor bastard happened to come across our way.
It was horrible. It was cruel. We regret, we puked, we repent.
The girls cried like babies, I swear they did.
From that day we pledged to respect and protect all the hedgehogs we meet.
This does not stop us from making silly inside jokes, but that's about it.

Sincerely yours, kisses and huggies

Girars make clear difference between the feelings people used to call a common word "love".

When there's a calm deep strong but changeble feeling like family members have towards each other, or mates on the road may have, they would use "yuna".

For carnal, passionate love and sexual desire there's "toifa".

But once it goes beyond the flesh and emotions, there's only one word to describe it - "alaiva".
It blends endless devotion, selflessness, adoration and bliss.

Morning, mate.
I guess it's more or less clear now: Mavi IS going to die, eventually.
I have spoken to Fern and she confessed that she can see Mavi's life until the Bang, and then everything is "obscure and foggy". I dunno wtf is that supposed to mean, but I won't panic till I get the whole picture clear.
I am leaving for Prague tonight, back in 2 days.

C U soon, I.S.A.

P.S. where on earth is my old ass halebard? Ain't in the Safe Chamber, I couldn't find shit there. Get it tidy, won't ya, mate 0:P

Kayama, vadu.
I am sorry for a late reply.
Your halebard is behind the curtain on the left-hand side of the white chest.
I have heard about Amyi from una-Varae.
Wish you a safe flight.

Golleg Mazran is Fernollg's younger twin sister.
She is
Golleg had got four sons and a daughter from unknown man.

The Quintuplets (The Quins)
daenair: (Default)
Frankly, Golleg looks like one big fat vengeful bitch.
She holds tons of vile for Maniiv, believing the latter hurt her sister's feeling and stole her man.
daenair: (Default)
High-Level Girars seek retreat in their azeel"ms,  personalized virtual spaces where their creators can either isolate their Yahs or escape to in their bodies.

Fernollg's azeel"m

An antipode of her worst fear (emptyness and silence):
everything dear and close to her, an old panel house full of people and noises, laughter, chatter in communal corridors and kitchens, kids running around.
Everything's annoying and irreplacable.
Trap: dream in a dream in a dream (the victim confuses numerous realities, each of them contains clues to one another).

Naghill's azeel"m
From inside it looks like an ancient temple built of grey stone: tall ceiling disappearin in the dark, 
broad columns, a praying stone right under a narrow hole that lets a ray of bright light fall onto cold marble floor. 
Trap: visual tricks and illusions, driving the viewer insane.

 Llava's azeel"m

A deep autumn forest among the mountain peaks,
serene and smooth mirror of a pond within stoney shores. The path leads to a meadow with a wooden platform on it; the platform is separated by tall bookcases from a sleeping spot in the open air, on the front side there's a low tea-table with a pot and cups on a wooden tray. a large tin pot boils some water on a portable burner.
Trap: a swamp.

Keranomu's azeel"m

It's his own "teahouse", an exact copy of the "smalltalk chamber" he used to have in Haelegaes. 
It is a dark place with a slow-spinning caroussel of gazebos that look like giant flowers hanging upside down.  inside of each there's a table top and cushions, hidden by a thick curtain; such car can intake no more than three persons.
Trap: squeezing walls.

Hjotennir's azeel"m

High above the ground, miles and miles up away. Windy heights, bridges and passages connect flying rocks and mountain tops in the crystal sky.
Trap: endless fall...up into the sky. 

Maneev's azeel"m.

White sandy shore,  grass, a dark strip of forest seen from afar, the road running from the beach to the far hills. A tiny cabin standing on the shore, like a chubby bird standing on long thin legs. It has got windows facing each side, except of the Eastetn side which has a door. 
Detailed description of the cabin's inside is given in the chapter about Resurrection, when Fernollg gets into this azeel"m to gather memories of Mavi.
Trap: flood.

Cold round - cont.

Strange is the way each city affects a girar.
It's never the same. 
Every girar knows now that men undergo the city's powers easier than women, and women are better to get connected with city's Farva.
Among Daenair, Hjotennir suffers the city's impact the most, with his personality changing from calm to rageful, cheerful to depressed. Llava masters his true-face-hiding skills, although even he cannot resist a lot, but Keranomu got dubbed "Meathead" for being insensitive and city-proof. 
Maniiv is the best when establishing contact with a new city, as well as maintaining this connection and earning city's favour.
This rule doesn't work with Rumas, which rejects Maniiv's greeting and proves to be hostile and threatening to her, although never shows this to anyone else. 
The city makes Llava forgetful heavysleeper,  Naghill becomes unusually temperamental there, losing her cold judgemental mind; though, on the bright side, she succumbed to her emotions and transformed them into deep dark poetry. 
She leaves the group as soon as she gets to know her local fandom, and stays with them, moving from flat to flat, performing right there, in the kitchens and sitting rooms, later - in underground illegal poetry clubs.
She visits the Daenair's place occasionally, once asking the rest to accompany her, and they all play a few old songs, and nearly get into a fight after one of the listeners comments snarkily on "the old-ass cheezy tunes" and Maniiv's "sharp dingly voice", after which they leave and swear to never play together in Rumas again. 
Next time Naghill comes back is the infamous Vayeel-Roch party.
Fern and Ke are lucky ones to stay out of any touch with Rumas's Farva. They live in a blissful ignorance about what kind of place they are really facing, ingnorant is Hjotennir, who avoids everyone around him, becoming aggressive, grudgy, obsessed and slobby, which makes women suspicious about what could change him so much, Naghill is first to suggest it has something to do with the city's affect.
Time passes, and Hoza gets worse, pushing away Mavi and Fern, locking up in the barn or "working" day and night.
/enter the last paragraph of previous article/
The girars split and mislead the hunters, killing almost everyone, but then they lose time and must catch up with the "family" who stays near the bridge, so Ke, Llava and the strangers head there, the women find the Hunters' bunker and capture it, eliminating the remaining Hunters and getting their posessions and food. They spend there two nights waiting for the rain to stop, and during that stay Maniiv confesses to Fern that she feels she can't kill anymore. She says something has changed inside of her and she is not able to spill someone's blood easily, as "there's enough of it on her hands". 
Fern suggests that if she doesn't want to murder, she can just knock them out, but Mavi says she gets too carried away and can't stop when fighting.
They both admit they wish to get back to Haelegaes as soon as possible. The next day they set off on the Hunters' wagon, but Fernollg forgets to keep contact with Keranomu and loses the road, which leads them to a strange little town. It appears to be a community of settled humans, splitted in two parts - "minds" and "hands", elite and working class accordingly. The women are put to the test and separated thereafter. The test consisted of watching the extremely disturbing, gore and absurdly cruel beyond any reason made-believe scenes in an improvised theatre chamber, the scenes full of body horrors, homicide and tortures. The two of elite judge about the watcher by her reaction to what she sees. 
Maniiv is shocked and breaks down, letting judges assess her as "lowly non-analitical mind", while Fernollg keeps unimpressed, cynical and cool, and she joins the elite. 
Knowing they must escape fast, Fernollg finds out that the settlement is not guarded and anyone can leave it unobstructed, but no one yet wanted to...
Soon the elite brainwash her and try to convince that outsidd there's nothing but fog and woods, and every city is the same, so why not live in a better one, the borderless town where you do not need to worry about your life, because you have your place here, you do not have to think or care, just do what's prescribed.
Fern begs Maniiv to wait saying she's got a plan of how to grab more from this place, but dozen of days pass, and Fern is still hesitating, then Maniiv breaks into the "minds" territory, kills and knocks out guards, makes Fern to pick up as much loot as she can carry, and they flee from the town. 
When they are out, Fernollg tries to get in touch with Llava (who spent all this time along with Ke helping other girars and humans to escape Rumas and deliver them to the Bridge) and is greatly surprised, when he tells her she and Mavi have been out of reach for almost two moons. Fern blames herself and hurries to meet them, but instead of the bridge Llava asks her to drive to an abandoned industrial zone on the western side across the bridge. They drive slowly through thick fog, barely able to notice the road in front of them, and see mere shapes of the bridge rails. 
The wagon approaches the half-ruined factory, when Fernollg asks Naghill about their camp's whereabouts, then drives in the heart of the zone. The women get off at the dormitories, walk  into the inner court and Naghill leads her "follower", warning her Hoza is already here and "there might be a massive drama scene". 
They find a huge girar camp full of families, who had chosen this vast place suitable for their winter stay.  
Fern sees Naghill through the window and is a bit frightened at the sight of Hjotennir.
Naghill laughs signing to her: "What a pretty boy, uh? Don't worry, he is back and sane, only looks  like a bag of old coal."
Then Hoza notices Maniiv's presence and contacts her, making her stunned at first, then she rushes to the upstairs, led by her senses only, looking for him at the upper floors, and meets him at the flight of steps. 
They can't find words, spoken or non-spoken,
 he kneels and hugs her legs, and they stand there while the time around them stops, and Maniiv transfers them into the Rain Chamber, where they make love and fall asleep in each other's arms.
They join the Daenair women in the court and announce their strange and alarming decision about returning to the Rumas on their own, because "Hoza has got an unfinished machine to build". Naghill is surprisingly calm about this, but Fern is deadly worried, remembering the awful changes the city made to Hoza, but Mavi swears she is going to protect him from the impacts, and already made a plan of entering the city unnoticed.
They depart, agreeing to leave the city as soon as they finish their job.
When Keranomu and Llava learn about this, they are shocked, and scold Fern because she didn't warn them two, and they wouldn't let that happened in the world. 
She gets obligation to get in touch with Maniiv every fortnight, to make sure the couple is all right.
