OOM: bringing plants and pots, with Demeter

Count had decided to stay in Milliways and chase demonic rabbits, so among the things Teja carries down the barrow-hill, there is no cat, this time. But there are many other things: his harp, some pots Demeter prepared, and a satchel full of clanging tools he had promised Wachis to bring.

It is a beautiful day this time, early afternoon in bright spring, with fruit trees in bloom and flowers open in the meadows. From the farm, little Hilde is racing towards them when she sees them, as she had been playing with the kittens in front of the longhouse' door.

Demeter carries the paints and some other things in a large basket and laughs when she sees Hilde.

"Greetings, Sir King!" Hilde says, when she reaches them. "And greetings, lovely lady! Welcome to Gotland! The king brings so many nice new friends!"

"Hello, Hilde and I'm not a new friend. We've met before, I'm Demeter."
gotland_npc: (Hilde -- laughing wildly)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-25 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"But you were old!" Hilde says, direct as children will be. "But it's your voice! What happened?"

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-25 09:01 pm (UTC)(link)
"I change with the seasons. Let's go inside and I'll tell you the story of it though you may know it already. Has anyone told you about Kore and Demeter and Hades?"
gotland_npc: (Hilde -- grin)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-25 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
"A story!" Hilde says. "No, nobody has! Adalgoth and the king sing us stories of kings in the south-lands, but not about you!"

She turns around, and fairly flies towards the house. "The king has come! Demeter is there as well! She is young! They have flowerpots!"

Gotho emerges from where she has been feeding the birds, chickens and geese and pigeons around her, following for the rest of the grain, flying and flapping about.

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-25 09:34 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes, we thought we'd bring some plants for your garden and some paint so the children can decorate them."
gotland_npc: (Gotho -- serious)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-25 09:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"They are herbs, from the south-lands," Gotho says, amazed. "Greetings, Lady Demeter; and greetings, Lord King."

She smiles, and takes a pot from Teja.

"You are so laden down! I have no goblet to greet you both properly, but then, if I had, you could not take it."

She thinks a moment, then calls out, "Adalgoth! Your strength is needed here."

Adalgoth emerges from a workshop, some wood-working in his hand; but he quickly puts it away beyond the door, and joyfully comes running towards them when he sees who it is.

"Only with wonderful gifts. Teja has a few projects in mind as do I. How are you doing?"

Demeter shifts her basket so she can hug Gotho.
wheatencrown: (younger shifting woman)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-25 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'm so glad and you'll keep getting better. Spring is so good for you,"

She watches them hug and smiles, its so wonderful to see Teja happy.
gotland_npc: (Gotho -- serious)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-25 10:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"And the girls are better, too," Gotho says. "They cry less, drink more, laugh more, and like it when you sing to them. We can all sleep again."

Adalgoth nods. "That helps."
wheatencrown: (younger teasing)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-25 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
"Soon they'll be getting under your feet. Now where should we put the herbs?"
gotland_npc: (Hilde -- watching)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-26 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
"Where we get to paint them?" Hilde says. "How can we paint pots?"

Gotho grins. "Liuta has a worktable by the kitchen garden," she says.
wheatencrown: (younger smirk)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 04:45 am (UTC)(link)
"Will you show me where the table is, Hilde and we can set everything up?"
gotland_npc: (Hilde -- laughing wildly)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-26 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes of course!" Hilde says, racing ahead with a loud whoop.

The other children are coming from where they had been playing or doing chores, and carefully, curiously circle the little group.

Hilde proudly explains to them that they are going to paint the pots.
wheatencrown: (younger teasing)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 03:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Demeter follows with a grin and starts setting things up. The paint's not too modern but will stay on the pots,

"Pick a pot and some paints and brushes. We'll set up and then once your pots are dry, we'll plants herbs and flowers in them for everyone to enjoy."
wheatencrown: (younger happiness)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 04:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Now remember to share and try and be neat. After all whatever you paint will stay on there."
gotland_npc: (Gotho -- serious)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-26 04:10 pm (UTC)(link)
"And take care not to get any paint on your clothes," Gotho adds. "If it stays on the pots, it'll stay on the clothes. And clothes don't grow on trees!"

"No, we have to make them," Rauthgundis says, meekly. She has picked a very nice round-bellied pot, and red paint.

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 04:12 pm (UTC)(link)
"But the plants you grow will help. Some can be used for dyeing and others for cooking and some will even help you be stronger,"

There are more than enough pots and a surprising number of choices in terms of shapes though none of them look terribly modern.

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-26 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Carefully, the children start painting their pots, some of them covering the clay in broad strokes, some applying striped, dots, or more complicated patterns.

Hilde is painting simple flowers and the typical childish cephalopods on the sides of her big straight flowerpot.

Wachis has come over as well, and Teja starts getting the tools from his satchel, and starting to explain, in a low voice, what the improvements about those tools from the future are, in comparison to the contemporary ones.

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 04:22 pm (UTC)(link)
As they paint, Demeter talks to all the children, encouraging them and asking them what they're making.

She smiles at Teja and Wachis, Teja needed this place.
gotland_npc: (Hilde -- grin)

[personal profile] gotland_npc 2011-04-26 04:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Hilde is painting a reddish brown cephalopod with an extra limb. "This is Isis!" she says. "Look -- just like she's sitting there on the king's shoulder."
wheatencrown: (younger smirk)

[personal profile] wheatencrown 2011-04-26 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes, she is. Maybe you could put something about the king on your there too. His harp or she could be sleeping on his cloak."
