Tenebrous Sciurida

Somewhere, deep in his genetic memory, the dead squirrel realized that getting his tongue bit should have hurt. He did feel it, but the pain receptors in his tongue (as well as the rest of his decaying body) were long dead. Something like blood, or maybe it was sap from the willows inside him, spurted from his wound. He waggled the extra long tongue in a show of defiance and spitefulness. The black furred squirrel had avoided him for the moment, but there was nothing she could do now that he had her scent! A creepy, lopsided grin plastered the possessed rodent’s face. He looked down and saw two nuts! A giggle, like something out of a severed porcelain doll head, emanated from his form. Eyes that saw nothing looked about, hunting for a new target for his machinations of corruption.

A cat had entered the fray! The giggle oozed out of him again. It was one he was sure he recognized from stories and tales. Perhaps he could use this new threat to his advantage. He bounded down the tree he was in, stuffing the nuts into the gaping, bloodless hole in his side and crept up on her. The innocent thing looked like she was asleep. He pulled one of the nuts (he didn’t care or know what kind they were) and placed it beside her. It was already beginning to blacken and warp from his corruption. The shape was beginning to change from round to sickle shaped. He was pleased.

Now, it was time to reacquire his target, the black furred squirrel. He wanted that coat! Whether he was going to pull it off her or merely insert himself into her form and expel her consciousness he was not sure yet. He’d lost her momentarily, but it was a mere inconvenience. He’d find her soon enough.

Skwovet

The chubby squirrel was curled up in the tree, her voluminous tail serving as a cover for warmth. A nice nap would help her de-stress and perhaps she’d just begin her long hibernation early. She thought she was done engaging with the cruel outside world for the foreseeable future. She was wrong.

The world had not been treating poor Skwovet very kindly of late, so she shouldn’t have been surprised to find a large pair of yellow eyes staring hungrily and malevolently at her when she cracked open an eye at a loud MREEEEEEEWing sound. Upon realizing that those eyes belonged to a large feline, she leapt into the air, limbs flailing, and bonked her head on the ceiling of her little hiding spot.

“SKWOOOOOH!!!” (Tr: “ARGHHHHH!”)

She bolted out of the tree, shouting “SkwovetSkwovetSkwoooooooh!” (Tr: “Oh sacred nuts, when will this cursed year end???”) as she fled. Without thinking, she had picked up a black, misshapen nut that somehow had found its way into her makeshift den - apparently, her hoarding instincts worked even in blind panic. She collided with the black cat and bounced off him, plummeting to the forest floor.

Dazed from her fall, she dove beneath more leaves, still clutching the creepy nut tight.

[OOC: @Sil 'B8' seems to have slipped into the Cs. I only point it out as I nearly selected it before noticing, and thought I'd mention it in case anyone else tried it (think the Bs are done). ]

Square the Squirrel

It was unbelievable. Or more aptly - unbeLEAFable. Square proudly mentally congratulated herself for producing such a fine pun in such a desperate time, although she promptly returned to her senses, and shook the ridiculous pun from her mind, just moments after it arrived. This was absolutely no time for puns. She was facing something of a crisis. All she seemed capable of unearthing was leaves, leaves, and more leaves. That, and the odd overly flirtatious squirrel thrown in for good measure. At that last thought, Square made sure to throw a dirty glance in the direction of the hopeless romantic, who was, annoyingly, still sat before her, simply staring.

Shooing him away hadn't worked, being annoyed hadn't worked, silent treatment clearly wasn't working. Square was beginning to wonder if she shouldn't enlist the help of another woodland creature to help rid herself of this unwanted shadow. Whilst she pondered whether or not this was a viable option (for something was going to have to be done about him before too long; she wasn't having him share her tree trunk as part of the Long Sleep Festival), Square resolved to focus her energies into trying a new technique.

She picked up a loose twig on the ground between her teeth, and, tilting her head to one side, tried to stick it vertically into the ground. Surely this would penetrate through the layers upon layers of forsaken leaves, and hit some of the good stuff hidden in the depths of the ground below. As she struggled to get the twig into the ground, she caught sight of her undesired admirer, who had just picked himself a twig and was starting to copy her. Twig still firmly between her teeth, she squeak/hissed (yes, squirrels can squeak-hiss) at him: "Stop copying me! You look utterly foolish! Go bother someone else!"

Three Raccoons...not in a coat

So far Reginald the third had not yet snapped out of his stupor from watching the freakish zombie squirrel. Hob and Bob took this time to eat the two nuts that they'd found and not eaten so far with the addition of the new nut from this last little search and handing him another bit of the bird that they'd gotten even though it was most certainly not a nut.

They dragged Reginald along further along in an attempt to find more nuts because one could never have too much food. The two smarter brothers of the trio did their best to ignore the zombie squirrel and keep Reginald from seeing it again. Though their brother had started to let out a strange weezing sound and was twitching slightly. Perhaps he was coming out of the shock of it all. Who knew? Hob and Bob were not doctors after all. they were raccoons.

Tenebrous Sciurida

A growl, or maybe it was a purr (do squirrels purr?) erupted from the bowels (but not the actual bowels) of the squirrel thing. A giddy, high pitched screech erupted from the forest floor as he leapt off the tree branch on onto the floor. Leaves flew everywhere as if they were making an anthropomorphized attempt to run away from him. Two more! It was time to spread the seeds of entropy about now. The crooked, broken smile returned to his thin, bloodless lips. His sightless (but not unseeing) eyes wheeled about, rolling madly in their sockets. The red/yellow orbs landed on the raccoons(@Fuin Elda). He tilted his head curiously, watching the trio of oddballs with a renewed interest. He looked down and considered the nuts he held his hand. He could give these to them, and watch them either accept them, and thus accept him, or watch them tear each other apart over them. Either way, the squirrel would enjoy watching the scenario unfold. Effortlessly, he bounded to them, seating himself next to the one that had stared so intently at him before. Coyly, he placed the two nuts, already warping and twisting as his reality began to change them, in front of the raccoon, hoping he’d take the bait.

Square the Squirrel

Her unwanted male companion was struggling even more than she was at getting his twig to stick in the ground. After working up a bit of a sweat, Square decided her improvised tool was far enough down into the soft earth that it would surely now help reveal some good hidden treasure far below the layers of dewy leaves. She leant against the small branch, which now stood upright from the forest floor by itself, and wiggled it to and fro, loosening the earth at its base. Disappointingly, Square couldn't feel it hit anything hard below. Eventually, she'd wiggled it around so much it could no longer hold itself up, and it fell rather pathetically onto the side of the hole it had once inhabited.

Square eagerly peered down into the hole, sure, absolutely certain, that she would see a nut. But there was nothing. Frustration and disappointment coursed through her. But just then, the male squirrel who'd been showing her so much attention, leapt past her, nearly knocking her to one side. Square's head immediately jerked right, sure she was about to see some form of danger which had given the other squirrel cause to flee. But there was nothing there. Square looked left, and to her horror, saw the squirrel pick up her own fallen twig in his mouth, and start running away. And she could see why. On the end of her stick, which she had ignored in her haste to investigate the hole, was a glistening, ripe, red, berry!

"OI!" Square squeaked angrily, chasing the thief's bushy tail. "Give it back! That's my stick! And that's MY BERRY!!". Her admirer-cum-robber had got too much of a head-start though. He was already half-way up a tree ahead, when suddenly a delightful twist of fate came to the rescue. The twig in his mouth caught another low-hanging branch, and the force of impact, though not enough to force him to drop the twig, was enough to knock the juice round berry flying off the end of its skewer.

In a flying leap of open-mouthed glory, Square swallowed the berry mid-air, whole. It had a strange taste, and Square wasn't quite sure she liked it. But she certainly liked the look of grim displeasure on the other squirrel's crestfallen face.

She started digging again, right where she landed.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

Mister Black was so comfortable in his colorful nest. Snow was falling outside. His tree den was warm, he didn't want to leave it. Having dug his way into the colored bark (kite) he discovered another 'Mysterious Berry'. It must of got caught in the bark he had dragged into his den. This berry was a lovely red. He decided to place it with the other berry, the orange and blue one. But this would mean digging his way to the nook where he had stored the other berry. Mister Black yawned and decided he would do it later. Soon he was asleep again with the red berry held gentle in his paws. It was quite a peaceful image of red on black.

Skwovet

“SKWOOOOH!!!” (Tr: “A nut! A nut! A nuuuut!”)

Skwovet shoved the misshapen nut which she’d somehow acquired earlier into her mouth, expanding one of her cheeks, before picking up this newfound treasure and cradling it like the precious item it was. She gave it a hearty sniff. Aahhh! The earthy, buttery scent of the little nut filled Skwovet’s eyes with happy tears. Perhaps this winter would not be the end of her, after all!

She shoved this second nut into her other cheek and emerged, puffy-faced, from the pile of leaves into which she had fallen. Where was that cat? She flicked her gaze here, there, everywhere. The coast was clear.

Carefully, Skwovet crawled to a nearby spot on the forest floor, hoping for more treasures.

Dart the Nuthatch
A nut! A glorious nut! "Brrr teep teep! Brr teep teep!" he sang with joy and bounced around in the leaves with the nut in his beak just to show off. Maybe he'd survive winter and become a poppa after all! The nuthatch flew into another tree and tucked his nut away safe and sound.

But where to search next...Was that raccoon EATING A BIRD!? And what was the black furry thing with a long tail!! It looked like it might have very big teeth. And then there was that super strange squirrel...thing. The forest was full of frightening furry creatures. Where were all his feathered flockmates to look out for him?

With a wary eye, Dart fluttered down to search the lower branches of a tree. It seemed like a nice place for a stash of food. At least the napping squirrel nearby (Mister Black) didn't look so bad.

It seemed she had escaped the terrible squirrel for now, but Fwirl was still looking over her shoulder for it as she searched. Her leap had been rewarded with three nuts and an escape, and she was running into much fewer problems than many of the others who were hunting nearby. Hoping that her luck would hold and none of the more interesting squirrels and.. things... about would take any more interest in her, Fwirl hopped behind a nearby tree and began searching around its roots, doing her best to stay out of sight of everyone and everything and please please squirrel gods just let her find some more nuts and stay alive.

Square the Squirrel

There was a curious sensation taking hold of Square, and she was absolutely certain that it related to the berry she'd just swallowed whole. As she dug, she began to feel a bit giggly, which was not a feeling she had ever experienced before. She also felt paradoxically energised, but also slightly slow - as if her legs and tail were experiencing minor delays in acting on messages from her frantically whirring head. She wanted to dig faster and faster, but her legs seemed to be in some strange state of lethargy, as if they were moving through water not air.

As a result of this general oddness, Square was finding it difficult to concentrate properly on the task she'd set herself. Hiccups of giggles kept escaping without warning from her mouth, causing her to giggle more. And as she watched her legs, slightly splayed and digging in a very unusual motion, she became enraptured with them, and quite forgot what she was doing. Have disinterred quite a pile of earth to no apparent avail, she stopped working for a moment, and watched in fascination at the goings on around her.

A silly bird, thankfully quite a way away from her, appeared to have disturbed a badger from its slumber. Square solemnly shook her head in despair, and decided to keep half an eye on the badger at all times. She'd had only a handful of run-ins with those animals in her short life thus far, but none of those run-ins had been pleasant. One had been a badger which had kept her up an entire night, growling, for absolutely no good reason, which gave her a terrible headache, and was nearly as annoying as the foxes. On a separate occasion, another badger had chased her all around a forest clearing, also for no reason. She didn't even think badgers ate the same food as squirrels, so it couldn't have been that. Although that thought led swiftly onto a slightly more worrying one...

Pushing it from her mind, she returned to her hole, which she had just decided to give up on for a new space, when suddenly her eye caught a glimpse of something. She reached down, and her claws caught hold of a solid, hard object. IT WAS A NUT!!! Square yanked it from its hiding place, thrilled beyond measure. But then she did a double-take, because in the very spot she had just pulled the nut from, WAS ANOTHER NUT!! Square pulled it out even more eagerly than the first one, and this time she kept her eye on the hole, and sure enough, YET ANOTHER NUT!!

Square couldn't remember the last day she'd found 3 nuts in one go. This day was second only to the day last summer when she'd managed to eat her older brother's favourite acorn.

But then out came a 4th nut. This was too much - and a fifth followed! Square was beginning to think she'd found the holy grail of Fangorn - a never ending hole of nuts. So it was with a bit of disappointment that she patted the ground to find nothing else behind the fifth nut. But then she remembered she'd got five, FIVE nuts. All at once. She was utterly beside herself, and got busy eating them before anyone tried to nab one off her.

Would her luck hold in the next spot?

Skwovet

One side of Skwovet’s mouth felt cold and numb. Odd. She’d never had asymmetrical chills before. She opened her mouth and spat out the nuts. The mysterious, misshapen nut had been in her now-icy cheek. She examined the strange item twitchily, shrugged when she found nothing obviously wrong, then replaced both nuts in her mouth.

She pushed aside some leaves on her new spot and recoiled when an awful smell hit her nose. “Skwovet Skoh Skwovet!” (tr.: “Oh precious nuts and trees, what is THAT?”)

Skwovet gingerly moved some more leaves and found, to her horror, a large pile of excrement. Her nose twitched with agitation. She had to get away!

The chubby skwirrel skampered away, a strange sensation rising in her chest. It felt like she wanted to destroy things! What was this?! She was Skwovet, an innocently clueless skwirrel! She had never harmed anyone or anything before in her life! Yet she could not deny feeling like she would use her little fist to punch the next creature she came across. Particularly if they had more nuts than she did.

Three Raccoons

The brothers had been so busy trying to find nuts they'd completely missed the squirrel coming into the same area that they had been and searching for nuts just before them. However they had bigger issues. Reginald wanted to eat the weird nuts. Something that honestly he should know better than to do. One should never trust squirrels strange or otherwise. They were not trustworthy creatures.

EVERYBODY knew that.

This one seemed even less trust worthy and Hob for his part motioned for Bob to get Reginald out of there and punted one of the nuts and then... Then he grabbed at the nasty squirrel @Fleeg and attempted to toss- him? Them??? In the opposite direction that Bob had taken Reginald the Third like a dwarf. No matter how much they wanted a purse to hold nuts it seemed like this was NOT the creature to turn into a purse. they'd find a lovely mouse or chipmunk or something maybe two of them.

Three Raccoons looking for food.

Sticks. Lots and lots of sticks and Reginald was still comatose it seemed from watching the strange squirrel. Bob threw a stick at the offending squirrel and started routing around in the next area that he and Hob had picked out.

At least with Reginald in this state the two of them didn't have to share any nuts with him and he'd possibly lose some weight. As Bob thought about it this way it seemed more like a win win situation over all. Hob for his part was watching the squirrel in question as they rooted about in the deep leaf litter.

Square the Squirrel

As Square dug, her mind still very focused on the delightful treasure trove she had just uncovered (and promptly devoured), she thought she felt the ground beneath her begin to quake a little. She stopped digging, and looked around. No one else seemed to have noticed the earthquake, or they weren't letting on if they had. The rumbling stopped. Most odd, Square thought, but soon resumed her dig. But as she did so, the ground started trembling again, this time much more strongly than before. What was going on? She stopped again, and a mighty good thing that was too, for at that very moment, from the precise spot her little claw had been just seconds before, erupted a swarm of the biggest, angriest looking bees she'd ever seen.

Square was frozen stiff, there wasn't much she was scared of, but stinging insects were definitely on the list. She daren't move, they completely and utterly surrounded her in a buzzing angry hum. She even held her breath to minimise any possible reason for them to harm her. She'd heard stories of squirrels being paralysed with pain from a single sting, even dying.

After what seemed like an age, the bees had dispersed enough for her to flatten herself to the ground, and slither away from them, hoping none followed her to her next destination.

Tenebrous Sciurida

More! More! More! He was on a roll now, finding three more nuts that he began to poison. With any luck he would have enough to turn this entire forest clearing against itself. He laughed that creepy rusted gate hinge of a laugh. It was all going so splendidly! He began his search anew, depositing the nuts into the nested hole he’d made into his side, where the willows grew. The raccoons were becoming a problem. One of them… poked him? The dry, desiccated flesh of the dead squirrel gave way to the touches, but with each poke and prod, the squirrel left a little bit of himself on the foolish trash panda, something he would find impossible to wash off. He stared at the raccoon in question, his sickly yellow gaze burning into the doofy creature. He hated the raccoon, wanted to kill and eat the raccoon, but knew he would have to bid his time for now. The derp would have enough problems on his grubby little hands for now. He could wait. He could wait for a very long time. Elsewhere in the clearing, the possessed squirrel saw that the other squirrel, the innocent looking one was having an existential crisis of sorts, that or landing in fox dung had caused her to go on the fritz. Either way, this was good. It was time to sit back and wait.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

Usually he was so agile on his feet, yet Mister Black could not understand why suddenly he was sitting painful in a patch of nettles. His small behind was burning with the may pricks he had received. Carefully dislodging himself, he climb out of the patch (obtaining a few more pricks on his paws and the side of his head and his nose) and sat trembling. Why he had left his warm colorful bed/den was beyond him. Now he had another mission besides find winter forage. He had to find something to relieve his stings.
In Mirkwood near the southmost (or was it the western most?) edge of the forest, a plant (dock leaf) with milky sap could be found. Mister Black had found it once and was gratified by its soothing qualities. For he had obtained many blisters on his hind legs and paws trying to avoid the evil eye ( Necromancer of Dol Guldur) that ruled that part of the forest. He had only gone once in that direction, and never did he return. He did regret not finding the soothing leaf in other parts of the forest. But maybe there was some to be had in this new Forest.
Standing up on his hind legs to sniff the air, he dropped down and let out a painful squeal as his paws hit the ground. He then limp off as fast as he could in a southernly (or was it the westerly ?) direction - hoping that he would find what he was looking for. He stopped once and attempted to dig up an interesting pile of leaves, hoping a nut was buried there. His nose thought it might be so, but then again, it too had been pricked terribly.

Three Raccoons

The two brothers let out a small woop of joy as they devoured the sticky honey and even out a bit on Reginald the Thirds nose which managed to actually get their brother out of his state of bewilderment. He quickly licked his nose clean and looked around with a blink and grabbed at the last bit of honey confused about where he was and how he had gotten there.

Bob and Hob rolled their eyes and told him they'd dragged him along. Which was entirely true they left out that they'd found other nuts and had eaten them without their brother realizing it. They were doing pretty good so far really from what they could tell and so far there had been no cries of joy from some creature lucky enough to find the horde. Hob noticed a weird bit of dirt on his hand and wiped it in the dirt of the forest floor and decided he'd do a better job the next time he found a puddle.

"RIGHT well we need to go to the next area and see if we can get some more nuts becuase while the honey was wonderful we need more nuts." Hob said and the three brothers toddled towards the next section that they were interested in.

D4 please.

Dart the Nuthatch
Aiiii! That was a mistake!! Hadn't his parents told him not to disturb big angry furry things with sharp teeth?! There were definitely no nuts here. The beast with a black and white face loomed over him and Dart began to shake and shiver. "Tweep?" he tried but the badger did not seem to understand nuthatch-speak for "truce"?

Indeed not. A great big paw swiped at him, the sharp claws bigger than him nearly knocked him over but Dart managed to gather up his courage, poofed up his feathers and hopped out of the way. "BEEP BEEP BEEP!" His alarm call sounded for all the forest creatures to hear (but let's be honest, it was mostly for the other birds who were still conspicuously absent).

The nuthatch flapped his wings in a riot of slatey blue with orange breast flashing and stomped his little feet in defense at the badger. With his point made that he was a Nuthatch to be reckoned with, Dart skittered off to another corner of the wood.

Skwovet

The little squirrel rubbed her front paws together and chittered with maniacal laughter. “SkwoSkwovetSkwoh!” (Tr: “Excellent, most excellent!”) she whispered to herself. The mushroom staring her in the face would be perfect for a mid-winter snack. She plucked it from the earth and carried it, holding it with her teeth, as she scurried along.

Her cheek was quite numb now, and her eye was beginning to feel cold and numb as well. Her front paws curled into fists when she saw another squirrel and a bird passing. She narrowed her eyes at them; had her mouth not been stuffed with items, she would have called out a challenge to fight.

Skwovet shook her head rapidly. What was happening?? She just wanted more nuts. That was all. Right?? She raced up a tree before she did anything rash.

Fwirl had found... honey? An odd location for a bee tree, so low to the ground, but she wasn't about to turn it down. Some honeycomb wouldn't keep as well as nuts, but it wold be extremely tasty! Before long her face and whiskers were covered in the sticky sweet substance as she transported pieces of honeycomb to a new hidey hold. Once this process was complete, she sat down to bathe her face and clean the honey from her whiskers- a tasty if tedious task. It did take some time, and in fact Fwirl had quite lost track of time when at last her beautiful black fur was returned to its normal cleanly state. Nuts! That's right! She must find more!! Hopping over to a nearby leaf pile, she resumed her search, ignoring the chaos going on around her.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

His nose, even though it too had been pricked terribly, had not been wrong. Mister Black found 2 nuts in the leaves. He stuffed them into his cheek, and continue to wobble south/west. His tender bottom, paws, face and nose did seem to feel less swollen. Maybe he would not even need the special plant that soothed the pricks. Besides he had been lucky on his last forage.
Spotting/sensing another opportunity, he stopped and began to dig through the leaves. It was amazing how a little luck and a whole bunch of enthusiasm could make one forget the pricks for a time.

Square the Squirrel

Still a bit shaken from the bee situation, which she had somehow escaped from unharmed, Square was digging a little less eagerly that she had at the beginning of the day. She also kept only half an eye on where she was actually digging, for her attention was focused on the swarm of angry insects she had disturbed, ensuring they remained far, far, away from her. She paused as she noticed them cloud around another, very dark and strange looking squirrel. She shivered as she watched, and felt a horribly creeping sensation over her limbs.

She assumed the bee-scene was affecting her more than she'd anticipated, and decided she ought to get back to delving for food. But the tingling sensation got worse, and by the time she properly turned her attention back to her paws, she saw why. She was covered in horribly, crawling, black ants. She leapt into the air, sending several flying, but most remained firmly clinging to her auburn fur. What to do, what to do?! She knew there was a trick for this sort of inconvenience, but she hadn't ever really gone in for paying attention to her parents or the wisdom of other elder squirrels.

She began running around frantically, trying to brush them off as she went, and occasionally getting a sharp pain where they had decided to bite. Finally she arrived at a tree, with dark course bark. She threw herself at it, and began rubbing herself furiously against it, removing as many of the pesky things as she possible could. Once the worst was over, the food-hunting resumed.

Tenebrous Sciurida
As a wise man once said (depending on your definition of the word “wise”), “Not the bees!” The dead squirrel was accosted from all sides by the Lilliputian little monsters, the sound of buzzing overwhelming all his other senses. Before the thing had died and he had possessed the squirrel, the fear of bees and other flying insects was deeply inset. Now, though nothing of the personality or ego had survived, the fear remained. He had never felt fear before, he had only subjected others to it. The sensation was not one he ever cared to replicate. He howled, a sound like an angry, wet cat, and darted as fast as he could away from the maelstrom of stingers. His body no longer felt pain, but he could feel the dozen or so times he had been stung. That should have been enough to kill him, but as the saying goes “you can’t kill what’s already dead.” He needed to get out of here, and fast. But where was he going to be able to go? The fear had darkened and narrowed his vision to the point that he no longer knew where he was or which way he was facing. Aggravation mixed with the fear now, a spicy mix of wild pheromones. His eyes rolling madly in his head, he ran, heedless of the direction. He prayed to the dark powers that the demons would not follow him.

Certainly a Dark Power, probably a demon, Tevildo bared his teeth in silent laughter as the cubby grey fluffball bounced off him and ran away terrified into the leaves. But some deep seated instinct was tugging his attention elsewhere. There was something here that shouldn't be--something besides himself, that was--something maddened and moldering and dead.

The Prince of Cats turned slowly, soundlessly to the east. The dead thing (@Fleeg) was running from a cloud of bees. How...quaint, but perhaps that Sauron was not quite entirely useless, if such mindless evil existed even in such a seemingly incorruptible place as this. Tevildo arched his back, his hackles rising slightly in gleeful anticipation, and padded in utter silence across the leaf-carpeted forest floor.

He stopped just behind the emaciated white squirrel and let his tail disturb the crackling, fire-hued leaves as he crouched down. He lowered his head to his paws and stared unblinking golden eyes at the odd creature. "You called?" he meowed sibilantly.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

His nose, this time, had been off by a mile. The pricking had probably cause one nostril to be more swollen than the other. Leaves were all that he had uncovered. But he did find a safe place (he hoped) to store his two nuts as he continue to wobble south/west. His tender bottom, paws, face and nose that had felt less swollen, now felt quite swollen - as his enthusiasm ebbed. All his one good nostril smelt at the moment, as he wobbled along, was decaying vegetation. The weather had turned warm. He hoped that the earlier sudden snow/frost had not totally destroyed the soothing plant (dock leaf).

Stopping to look around this new part of the forest, Mister Black twitched his nose and blinked his big wide eyes. Never one to give up, he began to dig about (very lopsidedly and unbalanced due to the swelling) hoping his one uninjured nostril would scent a nut or even an acorn or seed.

Skwovet

Another nut! Skwovet was running out of places to put things. One creepy nut, two regular nuts, and a mushroom! She would make it at least a week into hibernation with this inventory. If she managed to murder another squirrel for its flesh—er, wait, no, if she managed to FIND MORE NUTS—she would surely survive the entire winter.

She held her latest acquisition tight with her forepaws and hopped to a neighboring branch to find more food.

Tenebrous Sciurida
There was a power structure within the world evil creatures. It was never taught but when two animals encountered one another, the answer to who was superior was never in question, the instincts of the creatures would automatically kick in. The squirrel had been going around for some time as the top rodent, even in the clearing he had clearly had mastery over the raccoons, even if they were too dumb to submit properly, but as soon as the cat took notice of him he knew his time as the ruler of the pitiful clearing was at an end.

A sound emitted from him that, had he been alive and had a voice box, would have been chittering, but the sound that emerged was closer to that of the ripping of parchment paper. His “voice” was harsh and unused. He bent low to the ground, making his obeisance to the sleek, black killing machine.

“You honor me.” Again, the sound did not come from the form of squirrel itself, but rather from an indeterminate source around the being. “I am humbled by your presence, sleek one. My work is going well. I am walking corruption, just as the masters wanted. Have I pleased them?”

The bees had left, finding other creatures to torment, leaving the possessed creature alone before his better. The sound of gurgle came from his throat when he saw a squirrel finding the hoard he had been searching for. His sickly pale-yellow eyes bulged in anger. He and the Great Feline were going to have to work fast to keep the rot growing.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

'Yippee Ki Yay!' barked Mister Black (in squirrel speak of course). His instincts had been good. Two nuts were now nicely stuffed into his cheeks. He was happy that his mouth was not swollen like some other parts of is body by the nettle patch incident, although, upon finding the last two nuts and in his excitement before storing them away, he had rolled and scampered all over the forest floor - with nary a pain to be felt from the pricks. Had he unknowingly rolled in the soothing leaf (dock leaf)? Maybe he had, or maybe he was just a resilient chap and had overcome his injury with time.
Whatever the case, he had four more nuts to store in his Willow. It was time to bring his nuts home. Retracing his steps, he found his first two nuts that he had hid (quite surprised that another had not discovered them) and stuffed them into his cheeks. He had quite a mouthful - but it was not enough to hinder him from digging here and there on his journey back to his tree den.

Square the Squirrel

Having successfully rid herself of an angry swarm of bees, only to find herself overridden with ants, Square was now far more careful in her disturbing of the soil beneath her paws. She moved the leaves and earth one tentative paw at a time, being sure to keep both eyes fixed on anything unpleasant which might jump out at her. However, it appeared she had, for the time being, rid herself of these pesky pestilences. She dug deep and came across the familiar shape of a hard, solid nut. She prized it from the ground, with a mingled sense of relief and greed to find more.

The remaining spots left undisturbed by the menagerie of creatures was beginning to dwindle now, and Square was utterly determined to ensure she found every last nut.

Dart the Nuthatch
If his eyes could have popped out of his head at the sight of the stash, they would have. This was it! It was here and it was his! He'd survive winter and go on to be a proud poppa come spring. Having completely forgotten the dangers he had faced and the scary creatures lurking, Dart erupted into a joyous song. "Terreep chip chip chip! Terreep chip chip chip!"

Dart eyed the nuts and began counting: one, two; one, two; one, two. No, wait. Dart could not count past two (he is a bird) but it was a lot of nuts. More than two, anyway. He fluttered back and forth, moving one nut at at time, placing them in tiny nooks and crannies in trees. Though he could not count past two, his bird brain would remember where he stored each and every one when the hunger pangs of winter struck.

Once, he came back to see a squirrel doing a very odd mating dance in the tree (Square) and he paused to watch for a moment. Squirrels were such odd critters. Not quite as odd as the one who looked like rotting leaves and a dead mouse had a nestling together (Tenebrous). The little bird did his best to stay out of its way and that of the very frightful predator on the prowl (Tevildo) while still gathering what he could. Dart had a very important stash to protect now!

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

In his colorful bark (kite) lined den, Mister Black snored softly. He had quite the adventure in the last day or so which had tuckered him right out. So when he arrived back at his Willow (after storing his four nuts securely away), he had curled up and went straight to sleep. He twitched a few times in his sleep and moved his paws as if he was digging. For in his dream that is exactly what he was doing.

Skwovet

Ahhhh! Bees! Noooooo!

This is what Skwovet would have said if she could speak anything aloud but her own name. Instead, she shrieked: “skwoooooooooooooooveeeeeet!”

Another tumble from a tree wouldn’t kill her, right? And with the forest floor covered in an obscene number of leaves? She considered just eating the bees but they were all hairy and sting-y and unappetizing, even to a squirrel newly under sinister influences.

So she leapt. And landed. And looked around.

She still had all her stuff. And no bees (though she was sporting several painful stings).

She ran up a different tree and peeked about. More nuts, pls?

MORE honey?! Still better than nothing, but Fwirl wouldn't be able to survive the winter on fast carbs alone. She stashed the honey with the rest, and continued her hunt. Cautiously, as the nearby forest seemed to be full of ants and bees and who knew what else! Not nutritious, not delicious, and not anyone's friend. Fwirl was happy to make friends with all manner of creatures- just not those ones. They never wanted to be friends with anyone else and were TERRIFYING with their sharp bottoms and freakish strength. No no no, she would much rather avoid them in her search if possible. Keeping her head down and scuffling amongst the leaves, Fwirl kept going.

Skwovet, Getting Eviller

It worked! Throwing herself from the tree WORKED! Skwovet was in shock.

Brrr. She was also getting chilled all over. The cold that had started in one cheek had now spread through most of her chubby little body. She shivered and blinked. The world looked darker, somehow more dangerous and creepy. Oh good.

She gathered up her new nuts and scampered, thoroughly laden with stuff, to a new spot. Maybe she’d kick a bird or bite another squirrel or rip the legs out of a bee along the way for good measure.

Tenebrous Sciurida

One nut. It was better than no nuts by a factor of one. His little hoard was increasing, but it was still moving too slow. There didn’t appear to be enough places for him to search in order to fully corrupt this part of the forest. He growled and dug at the ground in an angry fit until the claws on his paws began to tear away in a spray of dirt, leaves, and detritus. How could he have failed? The master would be displeased with him, would tear him apart and remake him into something else, something less.

The squirrel turned and looked at the doofy looking squirrel that had taken his “gift” and managed a crooked smile. The change wasn’t immediate and it wasn’t overly evident, but he could tell the change was occurring. There were little ticks and missteps in the squirrel’s normal routine that marred the perfect painting of an innocent being. “Skwovet…” he whispered, “Skwooooooooooovet.”

He packed the nut inside his form and it vanished into the nether that was the willows within him. If he could but find a few more, perhaps the master would have mercy on him and allow him to continue his work.

Square the Squirrel

PFFFFFT. Square let out an exasperated sigh of disappointment. Leaves. Whole leaves. And nothing but Leaves. So help her Horse Chestnut.

She was beginning to feel her little front legs tire, exhaustion settling in from the many hours she had now spent rummaging around the forest floor. Normally she never spent anywhere near this amount of time foraging. It was her competitive nature that kept her going now - only because everyone else was still going, and she didn't want to be seen to be the first to give up or give in.

She decided to afford herself a short pause. Whilst on her break, she dipped her head down towards the offending, empty, pile of leaves in front of her, and a thought occurred to her. What did a leaf actually taste like? All of these many moons alive in the forest, and she'd never once thought to eat a leaf. And they were so abundant! She nuzzled the floor, and chose a particularly nice looking red one. She opened her mouth wide and munched it all up. It was pretty soggy, and sort of disintegrated in a displeasing fashion in her mouth, and parts of it got stuck in her teeth and the insides of her cheek. She quickly began to splutter it out.

Well that, at least, answered that question. "Probably not worth eating the leaves," she muttered aloud to no one in particular, and began digging once more.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

Mister Black had been foraging, but no nuts, acorns or seeds had he found. He dug over by the left of his Willow, then by the right. No nuts. He went up a small hill, into a gully and over a giant old tree that lay in it's forestry grave. No acorns. He carefully climb up three smaller trees to investigate some potential hollows; stopping occasionally to look around and call a warning. No hidden seeds.
Taking a break, he cleaned his paws and looked about. He would gather some twigs for storage until he went off in search of more food away from his Willow. One never knows what you can find under a twig, although, his nose was telling him, not much.

Square the Squirrel

She still had the tangy flavour of damp leaf stuck in her mouth and teeth - it was truly unpleasant - and Square was certain the only way of ridding herself of it would be to find a nice large juicy acorn or wholesome nut to rid herself of the flavour. But none presented themselves. In fact, if anything the spot of ground she'd chosen the scavenge in was even more leaf-dense than the last place, if that was even possible. The ground here didn't even appear to be solid ground, but just layer upon layer of leaves. After about 10 mins of dogmatic determination to find something, anything at all in the spot, Square gave it up as a horribly bad job, and looking around for what she had now decided was going to be her very last attempt.

The last shot she had of the day. She was going to give it her absolute all. She furrowed her brow in concentration, and bounded sharply over to the first place she set her eyes on.

F7, please!
