Another bolt of lightning lit up the sky, illuminating the two figures as they remained frozen in place. The Trickster stared wide-eyed at Vivikta, who smirked smugly despite the diamond spearhead being just millimeters from his neck. Rain continued to cascade upon them, the rapid beat of falling water the only sound that could be heard. The Trickster narrowed his eyes.
"What...did...you...say...?" he whispered slowly. Vivikta snickered, the smug look in his white eyes glittering brightly through the darkness.
"Sundara's soul is what's keeping me alive," he explained. "Her spirit is what makes my heart beat. Yeah, you can kill me, but then that will mean you will kill her as well. She won't just revert to some little sapling and come back like last time; you'll lose her for good." The Trickster gripped his spear tightly and brought the sharp edge closer towards Vivikta's neck.

"I know this may seem to be a bit of a shock to you, Aria, but it's true; you are the Outlander who will save all of us," said the White Singer. The Black Singer, the Nymphs, the Innocent, and herself watched as Aria paced back and forth with sheer disbelief. "I understand if you feel this responsibility is too great for you to handle alone." Aria paused in mid-step and turned to face her.
"It's not that I think it's too great for me to handle alone - I mean - that's part of it," she replied nervously. "It's just that I've never had the fate of two dimensions placed in my hands before in my entire life." She resumed pacing. "And to think this all started when I took a nap under a tree; my parents are probably worried sick." She let out a tired sigh, and faced the group behind her. "I'm sorry; I'm venting too much, and this isn't about me at all."

The Trickster sat at the foot of the tree, curled in a ball to hide his tear-stained eyes as he gazed upon the diamond flower. Almost every inhabitant of Kooza stood around him at the base of the temple in silence; some made occasional sad glances towards the covered balcony. Dog crawled up beside him, and sympathetically rubbed his furry head against his head. The Trickster looked up and managed a small, sad smile, giving the canine a grateful scratch on the head.
The Trickster looked up to see the Innocent standing on the stairwell, beckoning for him to come with him. Rising to his feet, he slowly walked over, and followed the little clown up the stairs, and into the temple. Once on the second level, the Trickster took a deep breath before he entered the living quarters, leaving the Innocent outside.
Sundara's wilted body lay under the covers of the large canopy bed; Trapeze, Balance, and the

Reason to Hate
Over the next few weeks, Sundara was able to finally adjust to the world of Kooza and get along with the other inhabitants, though she was still confused as to why she was created in the first place. She never saw or met the mysterious man from her first night again nor did she tell anyone about it. One day, she was sitting with Dog and watching the Innocent fly his kite when Trapeze came walking by. Sundara sent her a friendly wave, but the red-clad girl ignored her completely and walked out of sight. Dog barked angrily at her back, causing the Innocent to turn around, pulling his kite back.
"I don't think Dog liked seeing Trapeze ignore me when I waved at her." Sundara replied. "I don't get it. She's always been like this since my first day here. It's like she hates me." The Innocent scratched his head in confusion.

The World of the Sun
Aria ran as fast as she could, following the other fugitives as they fled from the horde of skeletons. Her mind was racing just as fast as her legs were; she had no idea where the heck she was, nor did she know what was going on, but something in her gut told her that she just had to run, to just get away from the skeleton horde. Suddenly, her toe caught on something, causing her to trip and fall to the ground! As she scrambled to her feet, the skeletons advanced closer, leaping into the air. But instead of feeling their bony digits grab her, Aria felt someone - or something - sweep her away just in time.
"Don't worry, we should be safe here," said the small voice of a boy as Aria felt herself land face down on the ground. Picking herself up, she realized that she and whoever rescued her were under a large shrub, hidden from sight by the thick branches and leaves that draped over them like a dome.

Pas de Deux
Sundara stared at her surroundings in confusion; she should've been in her clearing a good two hours ago. Instead, she found herself walking around in the woods for the usual amount of time, and then exiting at the Trickster's temple. Not that she was surprised to see the temple the Innocent had told her that the woods always began and ended at it but she couldn't understand why she'd end up at the place instead of the clearing. With a slightly irritated sigh, she tried one more time.
She saw the dark, familiar silhouettes of the trees changing with every step she took. She saw the same bent branch that indicated she was just a few steps away from the clearing. Those few steps brought her right back where she started. Only this time, there was a swing hanging in midair in front of the temple. At first, Sundara wondered if Trapeze had something to do with this since th

The True Magic of Aether
A couple of days after the lighting of the beacons, Aria and her companions stopped to make camp for the night. The young Chosen of the Singer, however, wasn't feeling too well, and she wandered from the campsite...unaware that a particular Guardian saw and followed her. As she walked through the towering trees around her, Aria's feelings were only partially quelled by the continuous marvel of Aether's flora; from the soft violet and blue glow of giant leaves, to the shimmering teal of moss, and to the faint gold of flowers that only opened their blossoms at night. Aria stopped at the feet of a circle of giant trees, and stared up at the canopy, admiring the diamond-like glimmer of stars in the sky as they seemed to blend in with the yellow glow of the canopy underside.
"Are you nervous?" Aria calmly turned around to find the Trickster leaning against a nearby tree trunk, gazing upon her. "I've been seeing it in your eye

"You got visitors, you idiot!"
"Well, that's still no reason for you to - !"
"MOHA, WILL YOU GET YOUR BUTT DOWN HERE?! WE HAVE AN EMERGENCY!!" roared the Strongman. Fighting the nausea, Aria managed to blink her eyes open, and looked up to see a man dressed in a bright magenta suit and matching bowler hat standing on the roof of a temple. In his arms was a strange red and green puppet that looked like a cross between a partially metamorphosed butterfly and a bird. The man (Moha Samedi according to the Strongman) disappeared into the temple, and came running out a few seconds later, looking more concerned than ruffled.
"Strongman! What are - what's going on?" he asked.

Everyone watched from the ground as the sky lit up from the explosions of light and fire colliding; their attention focused solely on the floating disc of light that carried Aria. Weaving her way through the air, she dodged another stream of fire sent flying towards her by Ignis. The reptilian Tartarosion was more experienced in aerial combat, but Aria was a fast learner, and she demonstrated that by pulling off a neat midair somersault to get behind him and hit him with a bolt of light.
"Very impressive, Aria," hissed Ignis. "For a Terran, you're quite the opponent." He snickered. "I haven't had a challenge like this for some time. But I digress; unlike Temblor, I will not permit myself to let this battle draw out like his did. This will end now!" He soared towards her like a bullet, and swiped his clawed hand against the edge of her floating disc, causing it to tip

The first thing she saw when she awoke were at least half a dozen faces peering down upon her. She sat up with a yelp, causing them all to scatter. Then she noticed she was lying in the center of a bed of fragrant pink flowers. A wild whoop of glee caused her to look to the left and see two clowns, one as thin as a stick and the other quite literally the opposite, cheering and staring at her hungrily.
"Pretty girl!" squealed the fat one before he and his skinny friend began advancing upon her with surprising speed. Before she could scramble away, a man on a unicycle and a young woman clad in a teal leotard rushed in front of her; blocking her from the two clowns. A dog and a young, much smaller clown wearing what looked like a striped sleeper struggled to pull the two clowns back by their overalls.
"Back off, you two! You're scaring her!" exclaimed the woman. Neither the skinny clown or

He shoots himself up out of bed.
"There's only one way to find out!" he says excitedly.
He gets himself dressed and goes over to his book of spells. He writes his idea down in the book. He begins to work on his idea.
With a few graceful waves of his hands, his idea comes to life (literately). A tornado of white light appears before his very eyes. The swirling light very slowly begins to reveal a human form. Eventually, the pool of light vanishes, revealing a girl who is about eighteen.

He slowly advances towards the girl, examining her, trying to figure out what exactly it is about her that makes her...slightly different from the girl he is still in love with.

Chapter II: Irreversible Changes
Friday, 16 June 2017.
It was 9:15 in the morning. The sky overhead was clear, the sun was shining, the birds were singing sweetly... In all it was a very relaxing day, only slightly hampered by the darkening clouds several miles away from the town of Carona. People walked up and down the street, minding their own business, quietly going in and out of the buildings.
Well, almost everybody, at least.
Inside of the town square, a scene like most hadn't seen before was occurring. A man with white hair -wearing a suit composed of earth tones mostly green, brown and gold- was running through the old cobblestone and stainless concrete streets so fast that he practically flew. Shoppers and people passing by watched in amazement as the man darted, slid, and vaulted his way down the road, apologizing to pedestrians as he passed... until he arrived h

The great lives we are living now.

How do you feel?
Does your heart skip a beat
When you hit that high peal?
Or when a crooner you adore
Opens his mouth and makes you
Isn't that what you want too?
To drink from his lips like the finest wine?
Or just tap your toe in time
To his beat?
Oh damn, this is tragic
But it's just like magic
The way he wraps his song
Around my finger
Or the way he lets those sweet notes linger
More then I want them to... in my ear.
So much for that.

Butterflies and daffodils and happiness so pure

Hidden worlds and wonderlands of things they couldn't see
Shining gowns and silver crowns for dancing with the prince
Twirling with excitement, though the others weren't convinced
Dear intimidation, did you find it to be true
All I ever needed was an overdose of you
Silly stares and laughter slowly flood a child's mind
Making me abandon every daydream I could find
Lost beneath the shadows of the sky so dark and dead
Far too weak to turn around, yet scared of things ahead
Dear destructive tendencies, I feel it's time to hear
You were all I had when nothing else seemed to be near
Everything so out of reach, too far for me to see
I decided I would choose the needle next to me
Slicing through my very skin to feel something once more
Weeping through the satisfaction I could not ignore
Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were?

Freeing yourself from your happiness to find more happiness.

Anyway I can.

What is in a pronoun change?
Don't understand what gender means.
Just a label it would seem.
Sealing yourself in a different box,
Boarded up, covered in locks.
Why can't we just break free?
Won't anyone join in with me?
No longer define by a gender.
No meaning behind him or her.
These labels won't get you far.
Everyone should be who they are.
