Tribute to the forgotten FaeEvery night, at the stroke of twelve,When not a soul is stirring,Something slips into the house,Silent and enchanting.Silver wings of a dragonfly,Fluttering in the night,Trailing a stream of whispered song,And magical wisps of light.Crystalline bodies and hair of silkPlaying about in the dark,Fair as the sun, whiter than milk,Hopping about like a lark.Eyes of a deer, ears of a fox,And feet more silent than a cats,Dancing and singing, deep in the night,So softly, they dont scare the bats.They twirl in your mind, bring visions and dreams,Inspire the heart and soul.Many an artist, of page, note and brush,To these beings, their art do they owe.When one is young, the clearer the visions,The stronger the strains of song.The Fair Folk are always within your reach,The young have known all along.
Why the winters are bitterA long time ago, when the world was newly formed, there were no seasons. The world was always warm in some places, cold in others, blooming here and wilting there.The beings that ruled the elements were displeased by this way of the world. Each element felt that they needed more order than the random locations over the land. This lead to many disputes between them as they tried to gain more land.Soon, their wars became so violent that they threatened to destroy the entire world. Seeing this, an elemental told the Creator about the problem. The Creator then decided that each of the elements could work in groups of two for certain amounts of time.The Creator made four very special elemental-like beings to help them know when they were allowed to rule. Sepra would dance in the fields when spring came for Earth and Water, Surrim ran with the beasts when summer was about for Light and Fire, Auriol sang in the trees when autumn flew in for Wind and Lightning and Wiriesa danced in the clou
The Renivid Saga 12Chapter 12: More water punsCold. Wet. Smelly. Erreia was NOT pleased.Her clothes might have been mostly made of leather but that didn't really protect her from the coldness behind the waterfall. Fire dragons don't like the cold much, either, so this was quite an inconvenience for her."In the very least, the look on the lich's face might be worth it." She mumbled to herself, completely forgetting that Eclipse would probably just sigh in a very bored way and mow down twenty two other elementals with one spell.After walking around for some time, she heard the sound of running water near a turn.She backed against a wall and cautiously peered over the corner. True enough, there were water elementals running(flowing) around in a frenzied sort of dance. In the center of the room was a large, glowing crystal. Icy blue and jagged in shape, it was obviously something precious just from its size.Erreia counted the number of elementals in the room. Luckily there were only about twenty of the
The Renivid Saga 10Chapter 10: Rematch with TidalsmashErreia growled in annoyance that Eclipse had just left for something as isnignificant as a cup of coffee but she readied herself, anyway, as the gigantic elemental reappeared from the depths of the spring."THOU DARES TO RETURN AND DISTURB THE SPRING ONCE MORE!?" The elemental bellowed at her."Cut the intros! I'm here to even the score!" She shouted, lunging at the towering form.Tidalsmash had seen this coming thanks to their last fight and dissolved itself into a large puddle. Erreia was already in the air but managed to flip and land safely, skidding at the landing."What's the matter? Giving up, already?" She taunted. The puddle seemed to have heard her, though, and reformed itself into around twenty miniature versions of the original elemental. There was an almost manic glint in Erreia's eyes, now.Elementals rushed in her direction, intent on smothering her in the cold water but were suddenly met with an explosion of thick smoke, causing all o
The Renivid Saga: Chapter 8Chapter 8: You'll get burnedXan laughed in their faces, looking smugly at the two he'd just defeated. Eclipse's ice-magic didn't last very long with his depleted mana supply, just like anyone else's does when they overuse the ice spells. And Erreia, while resistant for the most part against fire, she still wasn't completely resistant to it."Warlic hangs around with weaklings like THESE nowadays!? This is surely a sign that he's weakening! And with the Pyronomicon, I'll destroy him and free my Jaania sooner than I'd expected! But I'll leave you two with this for now. HAHAHAHAHA!" He cackled. He gathered as much energy as he could over his head before unleashing it in a large ball of flames at the two and disappearing in a flash of more fire.Erreia and Eclipse did what they could do to quell the fire. Erreia used her own fire to snuff out the flames and Eclipse used shadows and his remaining mana to smother it in a dark "blanket". When they were done, they were both exhausted and plop
