Journal #2First off, a big apology to all the people wondering where I've been the last couple of weeks. Life has been... hectic as of late. But now that school's out I'll be dedicating quite a bit more time to deviantArt and to the activities that got me so involved in this site. Chiefly making some Daedric armor! I haven't had time to work on it but I'm still very excited about the project, mainly due to the discovery of bondo filler putty (A big thanks to fairlyodd1217, go check out his iron helmet http://fairlyodd1217.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5a0on4). My original daedric helmet is really rough because I lost patience with trying to smooth out the bondo, but now that I know better than to rush it (and filler putty to help smooth it even more) I'm thinking I can get my pieces to the prop level quality I had envisioned.
It's also worth nothing that I think it's high time I got with the times and make my files available for download. My original plan was to make this all very pers

I have never in my life considered doing what I have just now.
It was just another type of music that I didn't listen to.
And now I'm making my own.
How does that work?

Then I felt to urge to move that track forward and put in a small different intro.
After it was done for the second time the main synth came in.

Mission to Mars: Reaching outWe were in the valley on Earth. We were just entering a new part of our lives. I was twelve at the time so she had to have been fourteen. Our dad was at work, so our mom took us to the valley. She said that Kayla and I could wander off for awhile and meet her back at the car in two hours. We were walking down the bike path in the autumn. The trees were all aligned on the sides just like the ever reds. The breeze blew and leaves were letting go of their branches and onto somewhere else by wind. We stuck to the right like a road and let the bikers pass us when they were creeping up on us.Mission to Mars: Reaching out in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Word quickly spread around the school of the coming duel; like Kethowyn had said, teamwork is pretty much nonexistent and always temporary. A six versus seven fight, on top of the six being the first "dark magi" was too good to miss. Personally, I think that Yunoko enjoyed herself waaay too much. The look of brief panic on that bully's face- we now know that his name is "Ancar"- was still worth going through the trouble of finally having to show that we are light magi.
The next morning, we had to get up awfully early in order to get ready for the duel; we wore the plain-

Four hundred years ago, a large, glowing, color changing gem the size of a house was found, after a large explosion destroying all vegetation for almost 3/4 of a mile around. Any attempt to break it up into smaller pieces to make it into jewelry was met with a dulled pickaxe, no mark on the gem and a worker unwilling to try again. Then things began to get strange.
First off, any team that attempted to break it was met with a small explosion (often leading to several injuries) along with anything wood in anything nearby growing and turning into a small tree. On the bright side, the forest started to

They wait until you close your eyes,
Until you're consumed by your own fantasies,
Your own darkness.
And as we dream helplessly
They cannot be stopped,
But what ever you do

Fire's scales were the same as Damion's. He was actually an exact replica of Damion, only smaller. He had two large horns atop his head, and smaller ones behind his jaw. His eyes were blood red with a slit, black pupil. There was not a single spike on Fire's back. His wings had black membrane and a black claw on the wrist of his wing.
Zevorox flew down to the group, smiling happily. He landed
