Ballad of Thialfi-- Elven racesHere comes yet another journal about the races of beings in my take on Norse Mythology, The Ballad of Thialfi.
But I must warn you in advance, some of the creatures that I'm about to list in this journal may or may NOT be considered 'native' to Norse Mythology.
This time I'm going to list the Alfar, or Elven, races. Three of them are considered good, one of them is well undecided, the others are pretty much evil. They are the Ljosalfar (Light Elves), the Herralfar (High Elves), Wodealfar (Wood Elves), the Svartalfar (Dark Elves), the Orkalfar (Orcs) and the Dokkalfar (Deep Elves, or rather the Race of Goblins).
Where to start? Ah yes, now I know.
The Ljosalfar-- Also known as the Light Elves, these beings are considered the wisest and the fairest of all beings. They are the lords and masters of their Realm of Alfheim. While peaceful and pacifistic by nature, they are perfectly capable of defending themselves from any and all manner of attack. They prefer to resolve conflicts non-
Ballad of Thialfi-- Divine RacesAs you may have noticed, this journal is about the many different races of beings within my original take on Norse mythology; the Ballad of Thialfi.
I do realize that this may seem a bit much, but I thought maybe I could at least start describing some of the beings who will take part in my take on the Nine Realms.
And where better than to start with the Aesir and Vanir, or the Norse Gods, and their hated enemies or sometimes benevolent allies the Jotnar?
Aesir-- Odin's people, the denizens of Asgard, and the sworn protectors of the Nine Realms, these beings are mainly associated with war and martial virtues. Whilst Odin the Allfather is King of Asgard and all the Gods, and according to many the spiritual father of mankind, he is not the warrior he once was. The new protector of Asgard and the Nine Realms, including Midgard, is Odin's first-born son and heir Thor. Whilst the Aesir are in the head deities, they are not always the most forward thinking of Gods. They live only
LoZ: Link and the Dragon WarThis is sort of my idea for an original Legend of Zelda story...which takes place in the...Breath of the Wild universe...but borrows elements from the Ocarina of Time, a little bit of Hyrule Warriors and the Twilight Princess.
Summary (so far): When a young Hylian teenager from Ordon Village named Link wakes up from a terrible dream of a great black-and-red Dragon laying waste to his village and the Kokiri, he and his newfound Fairy friend Navi, along with a strange Impish creature named Midna travel to Hyrule Castle in search of answers until they come face to face with Princess Zelda daughter of King Rhoam in a battle between good and evil as the dreaded Demon King Ganondorf prepares to unleash the malevolent Dragon of Destruction, Drakar, on all of Hyrule. In order to combat both Ganondorf and Drakar, Link must not only learn to master his fear, but he will also need to earn the respect and comeraderie of a team of unusual companions, win the heart of Princess Zelda herself an
Hope - RWBY 3.0“Beep…beep…beep”
The sound of the alarm clock rang through out the room, sounding the start of a new day.
He opened his eyes, revealing a pair of blues that was still glazed over, simmering in the sunlight. Slowly, he got up from the bed, the sound of the sheets shuffling behind him, his arm reaching to turn off the clock with a hint of annoyance. Standing up, he let out a big yawn and began to stretch his limbs, easing off the stiffness that has built up overnight. Finally fully awake, he moved toward the mirror in the bathroom.
He looked like a mess. His long blonde hair was disheveled, odd stranding sticking out here and there, being made only clearer by the sunlight beaming through the window. Bags underneath his eyes, though light but still noticeable, came as a result of last night endeavor in making a new training manual for aura control class. Along his jaw, light stubble has appeared, aging his face by a few

WONDERLAND 9:31 AM
“BOSS! BOSS!” Stan bellowed as he pounded on the safe like door. “OPEN UP!”
The elderly man tapped his foot impatiently. Of all the times to go down there-
The door slowly opened and Commander Jekyll limped out, his coat sleeve wet and eyes slightly red.
“What isn’t, Stanley?” Jekyll cleared his throat hoarsely.
“We got a signal! Sharp’s going to HIM!”
Jekyll stared blankly.
“Lead the way."
ARKHAM ASLYUM 9:32AM
Warden Sharp kept his head held high as he placed one polished shoe in front of the other with each step he tok, the jeers and death threats from the encaged inmates did nothing to faze him; he had to keep his emotions hidden when HE was involved. He walked below two screens each displaying a black K in front of the white background.
K for KIRA.
Sharp nearly grit his teeth at the mere sight of the letter; it was a insult to th
The Magic War: Chapter ThreeCHAPTER THREE: A NORMAL DAY IN WONDERLAND
She was running through the burning woods, her chest aching with every breath she took. Energy blasts flew past her, disintegrating every tree it hit. The voices grew louder and louder and she felt her fear increase..
You did this...
She took a glance behind-
BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEEP!
Wing shot up in her bed, panting for breath. It took a moment to realise where she was; she in her bunker with her blaring alarm. Groaning to herself, she threw it at the wall where it shattered.
“Alright, alright, I hear ya…” she grumbled as she kicked her blankets off and grabbed her black leather jacket.
“Big sis?” the orange haired 10 year old that shared the bedroom was already wide awake and looking at her sister with a look of confusion. “Why are you up already?”
“Eh?” Wing raised a eyebrow at Marlin. “Whadda-“
Then it hit her.
The Magic War: Chapter TwoCHAPTER TWO: THE AFTERMATH
WONDERLAND: 1 AM
WONDERLAND was created in the second of the ongoing ‘Magic War’ as a sanctuary for magical user to call home and train for the inevitable missions and fights that would conclude with either a chance to see another day or die. Although many other similar strongholds exist across the planet, WONDERLAND works independently to avoid any links to other strongholds being exposed. The name came from the infamous novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and because magical users can freely use what they consider makes them have any meaning in this world. When first formed, Wonderland was inhabited by eight hundred ‘magic folk’.
Now it's down to a hundred.
It was hours after lights' out; not that anyone really cared unless they were on a mission. This was their home, they chose their bedtimes regardless of their comm
The Magic War: Chapter OneCHAPTER ONE: RESCUE TEAM OF THREE?!
2016, Gotham City. 12:30AM
Gotham City was once a city full of corruption, a place where you'd find the most cowardly and superstitious of criminals. For centuries, this city held the title of being the 'Living Hell' of the planet. However, this all changed when billionaire Bruce Wayne and his wards were arrested in their manor and sent far away from Gotham under the charges of being the key reasons why such scum stay in the city. With them out of the way, rounding up and disposing of the criminals was far easier than the past, giving the new authority did not have Batman's moral code of being against killing. Yet no one knew what happened to Gotham's most deranged serial killer: The Joker.
Of course, there were rumours but they were never proven true or false. Some time after the fate of Batman, the mad clown disappeared without a trace. It came as a surprise to many as they thought the Joker would be glad
The Magic War: ProloguePROLOGUE: THE FIRST VICTIM
In a old run down apartment, 2012..
Light Yagami snapped out of his stupor from staring at the broken window and looked right at his- for lack of better word- ’lover."
“Did you get a good look at her face?' he demanded, voice harsh.
Misa looked sheepish as she lowered the pistol used to defend Light from the intruder. Her silence was all he needed to smash the table near him, to throw a glass at the wall, to see the glass impale the idiotic blonde.
But he didn’t.
Instead, all Light did was take a deep breath and think.
'That woman was eighteen years old.' he thought. 'Used a deep voice but no doubt to it, it was a girl. But that power..'
He looked back towards the broken window, the past minute playing in his head like a old movie. It started off as a regular day where Light would slowly trick the Police Force wh
X92's The Pebble and the Unicorn Chapter 5Chapter 5: The Great Escape
Hours later, as the Venture continued to brave the raging storm outside, our Equestrian heroes were making the last-minute preparations for their escape from the cargo hold~
Surf Burst silently relayed the plan to them once again via a totally bizarre sequence of signs: sticking out his tongue while putting a hoof to his snout and waggling his right wing 'fingers', doing the "walk like an Egyptian" dance, flopping around like a flounder, puffing out his cheeks and imitating an orangutan, and finishing it off with the ever-classy "armpit fart".
"Uh, Surf Burst? Yah do realize we're standin' right here…plus yah' already told us the plan several times now." Applejack pointed out.
"Yeah, well just make sure you all remember your jobs. This'll require precise split-second timing and fast reflexes," he insisted.
"It's almost feeding time. Have you got everything?" Kongo asked, as Twilight used her horn to levitate Spike's repaired cage back up.
X92's The Pebble and the Unicorn Chapter 4In the months since the last chapter, the once-grandiose library now looked more like a rock star's trashed hotel room. Discarded clothing lay scattered across the floor, flies buzzed around stacks of empty pizza boxes, and there were even some passed-out frat boys napping underneath a large plasma globe that sparked every time a soda bottle dripped on it.
The Random British Narrator himself was currently seated in the big chair, his tie eschew and pants missing as he gazed lovingly at his pizza slice. "Mmm…oh scrumptious cheesy mistress, we do each other real good…" he said, before noticing the readers. "Oh, you're back for the story! About time you showed up, but seems you've caught me at a bad time. Let's just say that after the third day, I got bored waiting for your return and…er, passed the time," the narrator mentioned in embarrassment, before suddenly getting distracted by his own hands as he stared down at them with a mesmerized expression<i>
X92's The Pebble and the Unicorn Chapter 3Chapter 3: Lost At Sea
As dawn broke early the next morning, the sun itself was raised by a tall, majestic-looking alicorn with a white coat, an ethereal cyan-turquoise-azure-purple flowing mane and tail, a unicorn horn, pegasi wings, magenta eyes, a cutie mark depicting a stylized sun, and dressed in a gold tiara with a violet gem, an ornate collar, and golden horse shoes. This was Princess Celestia, co-ruler of Equestria and Twilight Sparkle's mentor.
"Rest now, my dear sister." Celestia gently told Princess Luna, a smaller alicorn with a dark-sapphire coat, a flowing cobalt-blue mane and tail, cyan eyes, a cutie mark depicting a crescent moon, and a black crown and collar, as the younger brought down the moon. "As always, I shall herald in the daylight."
"Until the evening descends once more." Luna nodded, flying back to her tower in the royal castle to sleep and possibly play a video game or two...or three.

X92's Pebble and the Unicorn Chapter 2Chapter 2: Moonlight Romance
"Now, the group of ponies currently aboard the train were a rather special bunch: the six bearers of the Elements of Harmony; arguably the most powerful force of magic known to all of Equestria..." the Random British Narrator explained.
~ ~ ~
As the Friendship Express journeyed up the winding mountain railway from Ponyville to Canterlot, the train's steam whistle suddenly pierced the air, catching the attention of a violet unicorn with a pink and purple-striped black mane and tail, purple eyes, and a cutie mark depicting a shimmering pink star. This was Twilight Sparkle; Shining Armor's little sister, the studious apprentice of Princess Celestia, and the representative of the element of Magic. Setting down her book, she galloped over to the window and gazed out at the passing scenery with a big grin.
"Oh my gosh...we're almost there! Canterlot's just over that horizon." Twilight excitedly said aloud, happy to see her hometown once more.
