The element that everyone fears above all else, darkness casts a shadow on those with a weak will. Magicians who control this element are usually shunned or feared (but not without good cause, for Demons thrive in this element), but any who can look into the darkness in oneself without being corrupted is one with a heart made pure with courage and complete honesty, for as it was always said, the worse sinner is one averts one's eyes to one's own darkness. It still would be subject to dread, as many of the skills a magician gains from this element are harmful. Darkness can become a veil to hide and protect the caster, but also a terrible weapon that attacks the senses, bodily and otherwise. Some witches and warlocks can even siphon health and magic from living things to replenish oneself, and call dragons and other monsters to one's beck and call. Powerful against the physical elements it corrupts, darkness is nonetheless quelled and calmed in the presence of light.

Most benevolent and revered of the elements, light shines its healing rays on the darkest despair. Those who can make use of this element are often held with high regard (as the Angels themselves purify the world with this element), but some are known to become haughty for their lofty gifts, their light becoming tainted and turned inward with such thoughts as they grow blind to their own sins. Regardless of these few, light is an element of revival, of healing, and of purification. One who can use light can banish shadows, shield others from harm, and heal all injury. Some clerics can even revive a dying body, bestowing complete cure to the soul's vessel, and also sense the emotional and spiritual state of a person through perceiving one's Halo. Light triumphs over the forces of darkness, but can sometimes fall victim to itself if one's light holds traces of deceit.

Mysterious and ever-moving, time is an element that escapes most magicians' level of control. It surprises some, therefore, upon learning that the control of time goes hand-in-hand with the control of its brother element, space. All life is subject to the flow of time, as all lives eventually will end when one's time runs out, making the few guardians of time, be it of the Keepers devoted to the times of life and days, or the Keepers of Life and Death itself devoted to beginnings and endings respectively, truly venerated. These people guide time's flow forwards and backwards, speeding its steady stream into rapids, or slowing it to the point of freezing it still. Some of the truly gifted can create tears in space-time to banish their foes, or even foresee their ultimate fates. All physical elements are subject to time's relentless flow, and thus find weakness in time. Only in darkness does time find its own undoing as its clock is disrupted and deceived by darkness' infinite shadow.

The most basic of the elements that comprise Oekaki, space is all that exists within known realities. All magicians can use this element, as all occupy space, and has an innate understanding of its movement that allows them to Shift things that shares the same space. However, very few (in fact, to our knowledge only two who are not Keeper of Space: Heller and Esme) is a master of this element. Such magicians can Shift not only that which occupies their space, but outer space, calling down the very comets and asteroids that dash across the dark expanse of the Space Realm. Other talents include Pulling harmful spells into ones own magic reserves for ones own use, and also be able to form gravitational fields with an acute understanding of the force that governs space. In its common-placedness, many don't even acknowledge space to be a magical element, especially in that it has no real advantage nor disadvantage in comparison to the other elements. It is a basic art, yes, but a powerfu

Water encompasses the World, and thus is a deeply valued element. It is also very contrary, kind and life-giving as a gentle rain while harsh and harmful as a thunderous hailstorm. People with a good sense of balance, especially emotionally, find this element a incredibly useful, and the Water Elementals dive into it the deepest, knowing all its treasured secrets. It's best known for its curative traits, allowing one to recover injuries at rest as one circulates the internal waters and blood within one's body at a steady flow, relax pained muscles in lowering one's temperature, and purifying one's body of poisons and illness. It's little mystery, then, that water is very closely associated with the power of dreams and spiritual beings like Astrals and Whimsies. However, it could also be a true force to be reckoned with; floods and storms, ice and snow. To a creative mind, water truly can be a force to be reckoned with, especially in the face of the passionate blaze of fire. It only

Earth lays its foundations in water and fire, the wind blowing above; the tethered element. Most magicians split this element into two from its traits: its vast surface, comprised of its varying textures and forms, and the nature that grows from it. This simplifies this already simple element, as it further separates the choices for a magician into offensive magic to defensive respectively which an Earth Elemental would find easy to find balance and security in. The solid earth is unmovable, a hammer to enemies as well as a shield to protect oneself be it rock and dust, or soil and sand. Nature, on the other hand, directs its attention more on the well-being of others, as herbs and spices (both immensely important culturally as well as physically) could soothe injuries as well as undo poison, illness, and other afflictions. Sometimes, a magician can even entice nature to leave its earthy bed to aid them in battle, especially if it was done with musical tune. This said, nature and th

A dull ache, in the back of your head by your neck. This was the first thing you noticed as you gained consciousness. You could feel the muscles in your arms begin to twitch and the rest of you body beginning to stir. It felt as though you have been asleep for ages, but this was taken off your mind as you noticed the noises in the room you were in. There was a beeping, soft and repetitive, and as you slightly shifted your legs you could hear and feel the rustle of a blanket. Finally, feeling like your mind was awake enough, you slowly opened your eyes.
At first, the room you were in was far too bright and you had to close your eyes again, but as you adjusted to the light you realized you couldn't focus your eyes yet.

In Gotham City's Science Lab, a large industrial building with a neon sign, a woman with pale skin, red hair, dark green eyes and a green jumpsuit with vines coming out of her sleeves and hair walked out, chuckling as brain washed men walked by her, carrying bags of chemicals. "That's it, dearies...get all what I need." the woman said with a calm smirk.
"Wow Ivy, you haven't changed at all in the past few years." said a voice as a black sphere appeared, making a giant smoke screen appear.
"What is this? Batman? Is that you?" growled the woman, known as Poison Ivy.
"Close...but no cigar." said a voice as two arrows came out, which turned into nets and bagged up a few of the men as others were forced against the wall with a black aura. Ivy growled as she tried to make a run for it, but a growl is h

A dark and powerful storm engulfs the land of Azarath. The leader of the Trigon cult, Jera, has taken the key to Trigon's return, and is bringing it to the temple to open the portal and free the terrible god. The monks of Azarath try to pursue him but are stopped by followers of the Trigon cult, except Tyrin. Though he was only a child, he was blessed with a heavenly gem, which granted him more power than any of the dark followers; nothing could stop him from catching Jera. He plows through the cultists that try to stop him, and cuts through a building to cut off Jera. He makes his way to the second floor then looks outside for any sign of Jera. The storm makes it almost impossible to see anything, but the lightening helps him catch a glimpse of his prey running under a bridge through a hidden passage. Jera makes his way through the tunnel to reach a chamber beneath the temple and says "Finally! Soon lord Trigon will rise again, and grant me the power I so rightly deserve". He brings h

Come in here
Do not fear
The song that the forest sings to welcome you

Be calm and let your heart sing along with it

Hear the sound of the tree’s dancing leaves
The tune as the forest starts to sing
Nature’s heart is the drumming beat
Join the dancing, join the singing, come and hear the calling of
The forest’s song
Listen to your ears and not your sight

Mind is gone
Heart is free
Feel your spirit soaring and be happy

Lost in time, lost in the winding maze
Do not fear, melodies keep you brave
Follow us and know that you’ll be safe
Listen closely to the lyrics, hear their hidden message
You’ll know the way
Younger days in the past do not last
Soon they will only be memories
I’ll never forget our friendship
Just please promise me that we will always be together

Garnet entered a room in the temple through a warp pad. She looked around and saw everything was in order.
But there wasn't time to sight-see, for she was on a solo mission to retrieve yet another McGuffin-I mean unattended gem. Unknown to her however, she wasn't alone in the temple. Walking down a lengthy hallway was a muscular red demon with his horns cut off. Hellboy, to be exact. Hellboy was looking around in frustration, clearly looking for an exit.
Hellboy: "Damn it... How big is this place?"
Hellboy pressed his ear against the wall and knocked on it. It sounded like there was a room on the other side. With all his strength, he punched down the wall with his stone fist, and looked forward to see said gem.

The Guidelines Of WarWritten about the firsthand accounts of Navy SEAL Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan on 28 June 2005, showing the uselessness of the Geneva Conventions when the opposing force do not take after the Conventions themselves. Three of the four Navy SEALs on his team were killed in action due to the vote on letting three goat-herders go, instead of killing them, after they were discovered. The choice was based on the fear of the liberal media labeling them as murderers and resulting in imprisonment of four of our finest service-members; the choice got MOH-recipient Michael P. Murphy and Navy Cross recipients Matthew Axelson and Danny Dietz killed. Luttrell was also awarded the Navy Cross for selflessness in the line of combat.The Guidelines Of War5 years ago in Settings More Like This

Well, it doesn’t look too intimidating when you put it that way.
Three hundred and twenty-seven years.
Now that seems to capture it a bit better.
Seventeen years spent in the company of a loving family, a warm village, and never really growing up. Seventeen years cut short tragically one fateful day while ice skating on a nearby pond. A life for a life. Seventeen whole years, forgotten, all to be remembered one day now ten years in the past. Seventeen defining years that continue to permeate every. Single. Day.
And then three hundred years. Oh, how long that was. Three hundred years without a single soul to speak to. Well, a single person that would listen—could listen—not even the Moon. These were the loneliest three hundred years unknown to humankind. And yet, somehow, they had been pushed through, taken at day by day. But you just can’t go alone, unseen, for that amount of time and not be able to walk away
