Element Entry - TimeElement Entry - Time4 years ago in Settings More Like This
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.

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. The entire room looked hazy, and you began to try and take in your surroundings. It was white and clean, almost like a hospital, and as your eyes swept left to right, you noticed that there was som

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

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
Element Entry - LightElement Entry - Light4 years ago in Settings More Like This
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.

Element Entry - DarknessElement Entry - Darkness4 years ago in Settings More Like This
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.

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

Come in here
Do not fear
The song that the forest sings to welcome you
(We welcome you)
Be calm and let your heart sing along with it
(Come sing with us)
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
(You won’t get lost)
Mind is gone
Heart is free
Feel your spirit soaring and be happy
(Follow your heart)
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

It wasn't an impending air raid, but it sure sounded like one. The girl moaned and rolled over in her bed, eyes fluttering open unwillingly. She tried to reach for her alarm clock, but got tangled in her sheets and, in the ensuing struggle to get free, fell out of bed, taking the covers with her. She landed in a heap on the floor and made an "oof" sound, then extricated herself awkwardly and staggered to her feet, finally able to turn the hated device off.
It was 6:00 in the morning, still dark outside. The chilly morning air bit at the girl's bare toes, and she picked up her covers and crawled back into bed, muttering under her breath. She burrowed down into the pile of bedclothes and shut her eyes, eager to drift back into blissful dreams...
Then a dash of ice-cold water hit her across the face and she screamed, bolting upright in a panic, only to hear male laughter erupt a few feet away.

Halo: More than FictionThere are Halo fans, and then there are Halo fans.

The Halo franchise has made a hefty impact on culture worldwide, most significantly Western culture, and millions across the globe have experienced the wonder of turning on the Xbox and hearing that timeless, haunting Gregorian melody which precludes the coming joyride. It's only natural that within the fan base there would be people who take the concept of being a "fan" to another level entirely. While many are "Normal mode" fans, these individuals would be best classified as "Legendary," or dare I say "Mythic mode" fans-- those who go above and beyond the call of duty (no pun intended) to express their love for Halo

This place should be called Hovel, Greagoir thought grimly. Only the Chantry seemed sturdy, constructed of gray stone and slate tile. Golden light emanated from the stained-glass windows, a beacon that cast its glow on the surrounding buildings, most of them little more than shacks in various states of disrepair. Despite seeming uninhabitable, candle flames flickered in dirty windows and wood smoke filled the air, drifting down lazily from rooftop chimneys.
Greagoir was the first to enter the Chantry, six other templars under his command following at his back. A rather large contingent to bring in one mage, the Commander had thought when being dispatched from the Circle Tower on Lake Calenhad, further to the

Rath couldn't stop staring.
Sure, he'd noticed Wil before. He was certainly cute, and with that mouth of his, it was impossible not to acknowledge his presence. But before now, Rath hadn't seen him as much more than just another comrade. Yes, he thought on him more than most of the others, but now… Well, it'd just plain be impossible not to think of him.
Earlier that day, there was a minor skirmish, and he and Wil had taken a part in it. A myrmidon had snuck up behind Wil, and Rath had just enough time to scoop him out of harm's way and onto his horse. Wil's shirt, however, caught the end of the enemy soldier's blade, which succeeded in cutting the fabric all down the back of it. After the battle, a couple of the girls were nice enough to offer to sew it back up for him, leaving Wil without his blue overshirt for a while.
Which brought Rath to his current situation.
Wil was walking about the camp, talking to everyone whether they liked it or not

no puede vivir siempre en el suelo.
Para volar, Dios le brindó las alas;
para extenderlas y surcar los cielos.
No nací para vivir enjaulada;
encadenada a un triste encierro.
Nací para crear mi propio mundo.
Libertad es para mí algo más que un sueño.
No me atan las risas, ni tampoco las penas.
No existe mi cuna y nunca tendré lecho.
Sobre la frontera entre lo pasado y lo futuro
voy trazando de mi destino el sendero.
Nunca he conocido normas
capaces de destrozar mis sueños.
Nada es lo suficientemente importante
como para ser infeliz por ello.
De mi corazón, los temores he desterrado.
El mundo real es falso, pero el mío es sincero.
¿Quién puede hacerme auténtico daño
cuando el sol brilla y las rosas mece el viento ?
No me ajusto ni siquiera a las leyes
que determinan la métrica de los versos.
El alma del artista es siempre libre
y todo lo que produce el alma es siempre bello
Bench Talk Eyes closed and fingers on his temple, the assassin was sitting on the red-draped bench with the beautifully drawn hand on the surface of the wood, loose chalk dust blowing off of it as a cool night breeze came in. The bench was under a tree near a cliff, hidden behind a building that followed a small path that led back to the main busy streets filled with merchants, citizens and a few guards. There Ezio sat, for what seemed like hours, waiting...waiting to see him. So many thoughts were going through his mind that he started to get a migraine. The assassin murmured curses to himself while he thought how inconvenient, unfair, and heartbreaking it was to have to sit, wait, and hope that he would show up sooner or later. Ezio knew that it was not Leonardo's fault, and that this was the only way to safely see each other while the inventor was under the Borgia's control, but impatience was defeating him from the inside.Bench Talk4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Winning is your prime directive
Help your teammates, strive and serve,
Find your hidden iron nerve
Take the pain, be strong, get tough

Let your mindset be restored
By the old esprit de Corps
It's more than working out and tests

Leave your laziness behind

So come on down, if you feel brave,
You won't be sorry that you came,

"Okay, so I'll put the hydra card here. My timber wolf card here. Hm...where should I put my fairy card?" Twilight put her hoof to her chin as she thought, looking down at the flat piece of cardboard showing the image of a fairy (what looked like a tiny pegasus with a flowing blonde mane and crystal-clear gown). It was one of the many cards Twilight, as well as three-fourths of Ponyville, collected as a part of the "Creatures of the Everfree" card series-the latest collector's fad to hit Equestria.
