The last time I wrote about Jorg and Naylee, it was primarily to convey a dream I had into written words. I said very little about their appearances, because that wasn't a detail of the dream I had retained. So to prepare for their upcoming appearance at Magaly Guerrero's Crafting Blooming Howls party, I thought I should get an idea of what their appearances might actually be.
So here you go, Jorg and Naylee, as I see them:
Jorg has a fecund howl; it drips from the ceilings and vines across walls, laden with ghostly blooms. It makes him feel manly. Men should create, he says.
He has skin like sage and a frosting of evergreen fur, soft as silk, that gives him a faint glow in the right light. In any other light, that fur is nearly invisible.
His thick throat gives him a deep and resonate voice and he likes to sing to the gardens he sees. They always respond in kind.
Jorg thinks deliberately, generously, and thoroughly. He speaks slowly, weighing each word as it comes. He always means what he says.
He says his name with a soft /j/ and a hard /g/.
Naylee is diminutive and forceful. She is more skilled at decomposition and reverse engineering than she is at creating. She is light-hearted and at ease; she is hope. She is easily distracted.
Her skin is the color of Arizona adobe. Her eyes and short hair are the same shade of manzanita-brown.
They are each something west of human, or perhaps in Jorg's case, east of human.
Look for more of Jorg and Naylee on 17 October 2014, at the Crafting Blooming Howls gala.
