Element Entry - LightElement Entry - Light5 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.
Clarity - perceive the amount of light and darkness in a person/place/thing.

Element Entry - DarknessElement Entry - Darkness5 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.

Element Entry - TimeElement Entry - Time5 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.

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 - WaterElement Entry - Water5 years ago in Settings More Like This
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
Element Entry - EarthElement Entry - Earth5 years ago in Settings More Like This
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 ability to have these thought is the only thing keeping me alive

No pain to think about
Nothing to worry about
I wouldn't need to cry anymore
I'd still be empty, but atleast I wouldn't have to know it
I can't cry anyway
There are no tears left inside
It's like my sorrow is too much to express
But would others cry
What about my parents, my friends, my one true love, would they cry
My parents wouldn't shed a tear
I have to friends to shed tears for me
For me, there exists no one true love
There is no lover to shed a tear for me
I was scared I'd hurt someone, but there is no one to hurt
If there is no one to shed a tear for me, than why should I shed a tear for myself
NakamaNakama. That's what Natsu and Lucy were. He considered all of Fairy Tail his Nakama, completely irreplaceable and unmovable. To him, when you joined, you became family. You fight together, laugh together, cry together. And according to Natsu, family should never strand you without warning. Never. Natsu wiped his eyes even though he wasn't crying, just to be sure he wasn't. He had to be strong. He had to bring her back.Nakama4 years ago in Romance More Like This
Igneel had left him once. He had woken up to find the dragon missing. Just gone. And he never came back. Natsu could remember that day, when his father left. That afternoon in the forest with Igneel nowhere to be found. He cried that day, Natsu remembered. But the tears never brought his dragon back. And all the tears in the world never would. That's how he knew that now, as he ran with Erza, Happy, and Gray, he couldn't cry. He had to be strong and believe they could convince Lucy to come back to Fairy Tail.

I'm sorry I fell in love with you
For causing pain is the best thing I do
I should have left when love came around
But I found it's rarity too profound
I thought I could love and leave things be
But I can't so here's my plea
I'm sorry I let some feelings get in the way
But I fell in love so what else can I say
I wish I could turn back the hands of time
So I could stop this ongoing crime
Now I'm left wishing for a fresh start
Because it hurts to have a broken heart
Love screws up how and what you think
And causes mood swings as often as you blink
I won't allow myself to sit here and wait
For true love to turn to hate
There's so many reasons that can be given
For me wanting to be forgiven

As the musical droned on, she expected to have a conversation with him, but never did. She would intentionally sit next to him, waiting for him to strike up a chat. She tried a couple times, but with little success. He would be friendly, but he looked away almost constantly, probably fearing that if he looked at her too intently, his eyes would lock on her belly and refuse to move. The more she talked, the less responsive he became.
So her first plan failed. But she had a few more ideas left to try out.
A few days later, she caught him watching her in the band room. She waved at him. He immediately buried himself in his music and didn't look up for the rest of the period. It was at this mo

"No, I don't think I will, Mattvey," Russia replied, putting enough emphasis on my name to make me flinch.
The past year had been...interesting to say the least. It was like Russia had all of sudden "became interested in better relations between these two northern countries" as quoted by his prime minister. He ever so slowly started inviting my prime minister over; for dinners, conferences, etc. I had gotten away with faking ill to not go, saying the oil sands were giving me a headache or my debt was giving me a small fever. However, nothing prevented Russia and his prime minister from coming to my home.
I had tried various methods of subtle persuasion, but my prime minister didn't seem to take the bait. It was all, "we should make an equal effort", "avoiding conflict" and other things to make me feel guilty.
Of the three times Russia had come over, this was the first th

Valentine's Day is not just for young people looking for love. It's a day celebrated even by those married with children, rekindling that flame that scorched a path toward lifelong bliss. Bisca and Alzack decided to spend this day as a family, and they brought Asuka to an outdoor ice cream parlor. The two gunslingers playfully fed one another their ice creams, smiling and laughing as they silently recalled other Valentine's Days.
Suddenly, Asuka perked up and looked toward the street. "Ah, Lucy!" She waved enthusiastically to the blonde wizard just about to enter the parlor.
Lucy jolted at hearing her name called, then saw the trio and smiled. "Asuka, Alzack, Bisca. How are you?"
"Doing well, Lucy," Alzack smiled.
"Are you here alone?" Bisca asked in concern.
"Ah, um..." From the blush in her cheeks, the green-haired guns magic wizard could tell the answer. "I'm meeting...someone...but he's late, of course."
"Well, it's no fun to sit alone." Alzack scooted his chair closer to his wife.
The ShrineShe was known as The Forgotten. Hers was a small shrine, little visited by most. A small contingent of Buddhist monks and Shinto priests maintained the pagoda that housed her statue. It stood nearly two and a half meters, carved from stone with a slight pink tint, depicting a young girl wearing a long, flowing kimono. She carried a bow in one hand and an arrow in the other. Her expression was soft and compassionate, staring out sightlessly over Mitakihara Town ... or rather she had until the pagoda had been constructed around the statue, to offer some protection from the elements. Both statue and pagoda were of uncertain age. The statue had overlooked Mitakihara, in its various forms and sizes, since at least the middle part of the 1600s, the pagoda constructed perhaps later in that century.The Shrine4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

All that stress was taking its toll, so she resolved to take it easy this summer. After all, next year would be the most challenging year of middle school. Her parents debated back and forth about what they were going to do with her this summer, but they never seemed to reach any agreement. By the time May was over and June just beginning, she found herself sitting at home, wasting time at the pool, and watching TV. She had always been chubby, having been teased every now and then in elementary school and junior high, but she was also athletic and fit the upper-middle-class ideals of someone who was well rounded, so it was never much of an issue.

Clover stared at herself in the staff room mirror, turning in circles as she inspected every inch of the maid outfit she had been supplied with. It was an all in one skirt outfit that buttoned at the back, black save for the white collar and white trim on the short, wavy skirt that reached just above her knees. Her legs were clad in opaque black stockings and on her feet she wore dark four inch heels. The outfit was completed by a white apron and a black headband pulled through her shoulder length blonde hair.
