“In the desert, you can remember your name”
Frisk didn't remember much at all.

He was here - and there - and everywhere and it didn't matter if it was familiar or not. Ever since he had left his home pack to discover the world on his own - to fuck new bitches that were not related to him, Frisk was unbothered by the loneliness that took his life tone day at a time even as he found himself in these strange new lands.

Did he die before arriving here? He couldn't be certain. From one desert was the next, they all seemed to blend into one - but he did seem to not remember much from his home. All he could do was busy himself with food and finding a comfortable place to sleep, but still that nagging thought remained; he wanted a home, safety in numbers, friends and maybe a lover or two.

So he kept wandering. Up a winding path to watch the flowing river below. The smooth rock was easy on the paws but still he couldn't help but notice the vast nothingness that stretched out. He sighs. “Another day I suppose.”

The desert wasn't truly lifeless, she supposed though it had no water and blues that she was familiar with, there was it's own charm. She was being an adventurer, deciding since home seemed to be lost, to take her sweet time to return to the liquid times. It wasn't as if she wasn't allowed to before, but there simply never felt the need to. Within the land of dragons, the unit of wolves settled with each other, finding all that they need with their luxurious (though cold) land, and the family they bonded together. The true course to live was to find an appropriate partner, mate, or best friend, to enter the path of the dragon together, and achieve an enlightenment like no other.

Though, Vendrussel deducted she was a special case. Wolves of her land would only achieve a reincarnation if they followed the path, and became closer to their ancient ancestors. Yet her end may be blurry, she knew another was given- they had thoroughly given a sign, she was meant for more!

A small bit was their culture of wolves were very.. Reckless, once they knew they would reincarnate. There was no worry for death, and the battle they took were ferocious, caring little to their current life with the thought of anew. They were relentless when any times would come, throwing away their life, caring none to the injuries that could cause a fatal blow. They were safe! Under the guidance of the ancient dragons.

And at the moment, Vendrussel thought she was within the same group. Her head loomed over the cliffs, rather impressed such a dead place could make such intriguing lines. Her tail had a slow gait, and curious look tipping over before her ocean-eyes gradually moved over to a figure that seemed familiar, but didn't know they were different, "oh hey!"

“In the desert, you can remember your name”
Maybe he should roam around here for a while. It had water and prey to indulge his basic needs. Shelter among the rocks if needed be. Perhaps later he could continue searching for more of his kind after resting up for a while, or maybe hunker down here and see if someone else like him will find this place too.

Rounded ears twisted toward a voice that called out to him. Briefly he thought it was one of his kind, a female no less! Bright brown eyes turned to greet the voice, a smile on his lips only for it to fade as his eyes fell to a less-than-impressed stare as they approached oh-so-casually so. They were much larger than he was. Frisk was average in size for his species, but was completely dwarfed by this female.

She wasn't half bad looking for someone of a completely different species than him. To him still, she was just some kind of strange tall freak. “Ah — Hey.” Relaxed but not too welcoming either, Frisk wasn't about to start a fight with this one but he wasn't gonna to up to her sniffing her ass either. “Whaddaya want lady?” Despite his chosen words, he wasn't quite trying to be rude. Just casual.

Though similar in all looks, to the ears, to being spotty, the voices were surely different, even the smell started to drift over ; completely different. Just like his face fell, she too looked slightly downcrested when finding out it was another one rather then the same. Did it mean they were twins, "Ah, sorry, I confused you for someone else," Vendrussel admitted, slightly embarrassed with a lil' laughter. Though the other 'wolf' may not know her, she still was hoping for the coincidence. As a pack wolf, especially within her culture, she highly drifted to units.

"So do you have.. A sister? I met someone that looked like you a while ago. Not sure where they are now."

“In the desert, you can remember your name”
Cautiously he looked at the woman. Confused him with someone else? Well that was strange coming from someone of her kind. Did her kind often look like his? Then the mention of a sister and it didn't quite click just yet. “No, no sister, not here at least.” Well he had several. Coming from a rather large family group there were many - but they were all left behind for this new... sadly lonely place.

“Wait.” Then all the pieces were starting to make sense, as if all he needed was just a little more time to think about what she said. “Someone like me? Like of my kind?” And a her no less! Oh good so there were others like them somewhere around, and all he had to do was try and find them. “Where'd you see them?” The frown that was once etched on his face relaxed as a light sway in his white tipped tail moved with a rhythm of its own. He felt lighter than before, more willing to chat.

"Pardon my asking, but do you all look so.. Similar?" As the other exclaimed they held no sister in these lands, she could not drop the thought of the question. They were surely strange, not fugly in a sense but held some kind of weirdness around their origins. So wolf-like, yet they were so spotted like any she had seen, and ears so round that she wondered if they flew back when the breeze came. Could they fold it as so? Vendrussel only met very few of their kind, and two were alike in so many ways yet not related, it brought questions.

"Ah, somewhere in the sands. The area is easy to get lost in." Sadly though, the blue wolf could not aim him a specific way, just saying she was somewhere with the dunes of the sandbox.
