    Nadarr's C-B

    Post by Sir Leonard on 23rd January 2016, 3:58 am

    Tenroujima. An acnient island unknown to all except to those who are members of Fairy Tail. As always, the island was full of lush green forests and wondrous caves and mountain formations. However, the most eye popping feature of the island was the great tree in its center that seems to support another mass of land on top of it. Legends tell that the founder of Fairy Tail was born and buried here. They also tell of a once great wizard guild based at the very island. The local wildlife that call Tenroujima their home are very powerful, mischievous, and warm

    Indeed much history and magic can be found in this island. A place where can honor those that put forth the Fairy Tail family, and contemplate our actions. Yet the voices, the calls of the old fell on deaf ears as there stood a man wearing a brown tattered cloak, covering his entire body, and a hood that casts a shadow on the man's bearded face. It stood emotionless and indifferent that he was standing on holy ground. For he felt that he is no longer welcome in the island of light.

    Then why would such man be in such a place? He simply had another reason to be here; a task. One he will conduct meticulously because it would mean the very survival of Fairy Tail, of his family. He was to assess if one of his family members is ready to enter the higher ranks.

    But for now, Leonard stood on a rock that was beside a dirt road that winds down to a small house by the beach on one end, and through a valley and the entrance of a cave.Though most would have died of boredom from simply standing around, the blademaster was fine with such. The wind blew from the side and with it, brought a gentle sea breeze that made his cloak flutter through the air. The gulls squawked while flying in groups. And the sea glittered with the light of the sun. It was very calming, so why would anyone feel unentertained by this? But even with all this attractions, Leonard kept his focus on the port. Awaiting the one that will go through his test to see if he has grown powerful enough.

    As Apollo got to Tenrujima Island He took a few steps onto the island looking around very briefly. This island was Fairy Tails sacred ground and the place which gives Fairy Tail members magic and strength. It wasn't everyday someone got to come to this Island and view it's majesty in person, but Apollo was here for a single reason that day. This reason being he was deamed ready to move on to the next rank in the guild to become a B rank wizard. Apollo couldn't help but smile at the though so much of what he had worked for but he still had the exam so he looked to the path and started walking.

    As he walked he looked down at his sheet of paper sighing a little. Rose had given it to him before he had left saying his exam proctor would meet him there. Apollo sighed but understood part of the secrecy. The guild was flourishing and there were now many people who could give him his exam now and if he knew who there was a chance he could prepare...or so these were his thoughts.

    As he walked further into the jungle the large tenru tree always insight since i twas the centerpiece of the Island. He could hear monsters and different animals rushing around him and the sounds they made in the distance. He gave a small sigh thinking about how this place was home to many power beasts who had an alliance with Fairy Tail. he then clicked open his watch thinking about how much Eliza would have loved this place if she was alive, but Apollo would just have to see it for himself for the both of them.

    He then started to think about his exam again wondering less about who was going to give it to him and more about what he had to do. His c rank exam was blocking three thunder bolts using is shields, meaning this exam was probably going to be harder, though if this guild has taught him anything it to expect the unexpected whether that be a flying charge or what he was ready for anything.

    As he continued down the path he saw some with there tattered clock in the distance. Apollo kept walking towards him then stopped his eyes widened very briefly as he saw none other then Fairy Tail first master standing on a rock. He Approached him calmly. "First master um hello will you be giving my exam..." he asked looking at him calmly but inside was nervouse as hell since this was the first master of Fairy Tail...meaning this was going to be harder then he thought.

    The sights, the sounds, it would all continue to be the same for a few hours, and still Leonard didn't move a inch. The only thing that did move was his cloak that fluttered freely in the wind, and his eyes moving up and down, and from side to side, gazing at different areas of his eyesight. Over the horizon, he eyed something dark, and moving with the with a little bit to his right, just enough for him to see without moving his head. He could see storm clouds brewing. Disturbing the mainland. Although it was only normal for this time of the year, Leonard couldn't help but feel a different storm force brew within. Something that draws him towards it. The eye of the storm? He was not close enough to say for certain, but his heart was pounding and his mind swirled. But these were thoughts for some other time so ha paid no heed to them, quickly casting them away to the dark recesses of what's left of his soul.

    Hours passed and Leonard was still standing there, he might have grown roots already, his feet were beginning to hurt, but he must stand firm and fast if he will ever catch the B-Rank-to-be. The small, furry animals that aligned themselves to the cuter and kinder side of the animal wildlife of the island began to flock near him, sensing he was no threat. But how could that be if his aura gives off a hint of darkness? The answer was simple and he found it in his heart and on his back. He was Fairy Tail.

    Minutes passed since Leonard was flocked by animals, that even some of them made their way to climb up to his shoulder, the one to take the test was yet to be found. For every 10 minutes that passed, Leonard would count... 2... 3... 4... Until he finally saw a ship moored at the port, he stopped counting every 10 minutes after that.

    Out of the boat emerged a young lad, whom he was sure is the one to part take in this significant hurdle in his life. He was beginning to think of what the mage's reaction will be if he found out the he is giving the exam and not their master. There were too many thoughts and conclusions to mention that he did not have enough time to select the correct one from them because the test taker was already in front of him. The animals that flocked Leonard took a brief gaze at new comer and suddenly fled the scene, probably because they knew it's time to work. "First master um hello will you be giving my exam..." the mage said calmly.

    Leonard slowly lowered his head to get a better look at the mage, starring at him from top to bottom. He wore a suite and tie. Very formal, and impressive. He could do battle and still look like a boss. The mage had a calm look on his face, but Leonard could see past that he was hiding other emotions.

    Finally, Leonard moved after God knows how long. He lifted his foot from the rock and stepped on the soft grass in front of it, then his other foot followed. "That is correct, my son. You're very late. And for that you shall battle four more monsters in a total of 7." he said in reply in loud dark voice, booming a hint of authority to emphasize how serious he is like Darth Vader. Although he does hope he did not scare the young lad and continued talking. "Now, if you please follow me towards Dagob cave where we will conduct your exam." He turned to his right afterwards to step in the trail and walk towards the cave.

    As they walked, they came across Founder's Valley. A tall pathway that greets people who would enter Dagob cave as this is the only way to access the cave. The trail inside the valley is adorned with statues on its sides carved from the natural cliff by Leonard himself. The cliff also has a few inscriptions carved on the cliff in the intervals between the statues. This is where he spent most of his alone time to contemplate and meditate, and then carve statutes. The statues were in the image of likeness of Fairy Tail's masters, towering in a height of 15 feet. The first two statues were his and Ebony's. The second set featured Ken, and Simon. And Ken's statue- which was the the right side, along with Leonard's - was another statue being constructed as evident by the woob planks and platforms with buckets of sparkling ornaments known as glitters around a stone base and legs that were already carved.

    As they walked, Leonard would talk to him about the place in the tome he normally uses "This is Founder's Valley, my private sanctum in the island. Here you will find the men and woman who have guided and/or lead Fairy Tail to be the loving family it is now.  It is also where I give my exams. Ahead of us is Dagob Cave. There your objective is simple. Find me. But as I have mentioned before, you will face 7 monsters who are sure to find you along the way." After he was done talking they arrived at the wide mouth of the cave, the entrance to the deep bowels of a huge mountain. It is here that Leonard equipped a sword, and a small dagger. He chose to ReQuip here because they won't be able to use magic once they enter due to the Null Field being set up, but he didn't tell him that. Afterwards, he turned to face the mage and said. "Now then, my child, tell me your full name so we can being."

    As he asked his question there were a few minutes as if he was scanning him. Apollo looked at him nodding a little ready for this but wondered what he would be doing. As the wind blew around him The First Master of Fairy Tail finally spoke to him. As he stepped down from the rock in a loud dark voice. "That is correct, my son. You're very late. And for that you shall battle four more monsters in a total of 7." Apollo then felt a drop go down his head a little but gave a small smile not showing any intimidation but his heart pounding at his towering voice. "Only seven huh i've faced worse..." he said remembering his job his job versing the vampire army at the water village. He then looked at him as he spoke again in his thundering voice. "Now, if you please follow me towards Dagob cave where we will conduct your exam." Apollo nodded as the First master started to walk towards the cave he was talking about.

    Apollo sighed a little then smiled a little as he looked around Tenru Island. He saw it and it's true beauty and everything it had to offer. birds flew over head and animals in the distance, This place was the things you would see in dreams or in a Fairy Tale. The thought of this being like a Fairy tale setting made Apollo laugh for a brief second since there guild name was Fairy Tail, It was a dumb joke but he wanted to make the best of his time here and create good memories on this island this was there sacred ground after all and something told him that He would be seeing way more of this place in the future for better or for worse.

    As they broke the treeline they cam to a small opening. It was really a small opening showing the entrance to the cave The First Master had talked about. He then wondered why they were going to this cave in particulate. He mentioned that he would be fighting monster but were they in that cave system he didn't know why though. He gulped a little nervous but continued to Follow Leonard into the caves entrance was this what made this island Fairy Tail sacred ground or was it just a piece to something bigger he wondered to himself as they walked He looked up seeing statues..but they weren't just any statues they were former guild masters of Fairy Tail. Lenoards, Nightkens, Ebony's and Simons statues. were standing tall. As he looked around he saw one being made which was most likely for Heero as he was the current master. A smile appeared on his face as he looked around and a sentence forced it's way out of his mouth. Better leave room for me on those walls..." he said with determination in his voice but also a bit of hesitation.

    As Apollo finished his sentence he saw him stop at the mouth of the cave. Leonard then turned around to talk to Apollo. Apollo snapped to him ready to listen. "This is Founder's Valley, my private sanctum in the island. Here you will find the men and woman who have guided and/or lead Fairy Tail to be the loving family it is now. It is also where I give my exams. Ahead of us is Dagob Cave. There your objective is simple. Find me. But as I have mentioned before, you will face 7 monsters who are sure to find you along the way." Apollo listened as he explained the challenge to him. It sounded simple enough he then saw him use ReQuip magic and make a sword and dagger in his hand. Then the gears started going in his head. Why reequip before going into the cave, surly it could wait perhaps for protection now but that was doubtful since he was the first master of Fairy Tail but then he was snapped out of his thinking as Leonard spoke to him. "Now then, my child, tell me your full name so we can being." Apollo nodded looking at him "Apollo Grendel Valairs" He said confidently ready to begin what ever he had in store for him.

    As they were walking, Leonard heard the mage's various comments. Even the one regarding the 7 monsters he was about to face. The Blademaster couldn't help but grin. He should know that underestimating his opponents would be very dangerous. Leonard wondered if he would still think that way when he learns that in the first area of the cave, he will have no magic to use.

    He also heard the one regarding the one wanting to have a spot where he will be carved in Immortal's Cliff. This mage really fascinated the old warrior and wanted to see what will become of him in the future.

    At the mouth of the cave, he could see that the man was wondering why he chose to ReQuip outside. Perhaps there is more to his boasting that it seems, he thought. But his thinking won't help him now. He wouldn't realize or feel his magic has been nullified until its too late.

    The mage had done what he had asked and said his full name "Apollo Grendel Valairs"

    The ground beneath Apollo began to glow. While it glowed, Leonard closed his eyes and began seeing things. Shielding magic... Weaknesses... Strengths... Analysis complete. These words were murmured softly by Leonard, making sure Apollo won't hear him. Then right after the glow faded away, the cave began to sound and shake.

    Inside the caves, the very walls were shaking. The view would pan around to see where it was coming from. And all the while the ceiling would drop small debris due to the intensity. And at the very far side of the cave. Past an underground river, a few pillars, and a tall winding stair which leads to a throne, and behind it, several doors that seemed to be the source of the roaring and howling. 7 of the doors opened up and as they did, steam came out of them. Once the doors were fully open. Red glowing eyes sprung forth. Each door containing a creature with different number of eyes. Then all at once gave out a deafening roar that made the view fly back out to the mouth of the cave where from here, the sound was a little softer, but still loud enough to be heard.

    "It seems they are ready for you now. Good luck, Apollo. I will see you inside... Leonard said as he took a few steps back until he was devoured by the darkness of the cave. Once he was, it was very similar to not being there in the first place or simply vanishing as he left without a trace, not even the steps his steel-plated boots make while walking.

    Leonard melded with the darkness of the cave. Even if he couldn't use magic, he knew where to go. Not because he has memorized the cave. But mostly because of his keen senses that allow him to discern a location. Once Apollo enters the cave, he would hear Leonard say echoing out through the walls "The cave will test you in three areas. This is the first. Can you survive this darkness? And all it surprises?"

    Meanwhile, three of the monsters took their positions in the mouth of the cave. There was one that was bound to make the first move. He was a very brutish monster. Very muscly and strong. Yet he wasn't slow either and was resistant to most elements that were considered offensive such as fire, and lightning. He had sharp fangs and claws that could pierce through very strong armor. Yet with all these features, it was still considered as a B - Rank. This monster would climb up the ceiling and wait on Apollo to pounce on him when he is in range.

    Apollo looked at him  as he looked over him  He saw him talking but didn't know what he was saying.  Apollo could only assume he was saying something about him or casting a spell.  As he watched him he looked at the cave.  He didn't know what to expect but he did know this wouldn't be a walk in the park either. he looked forward as the glow from his master stopped he then looked at Apollo and the ground started to shake benieth his feet.  Apollo looked at Leonard startled it was a spell,  he thought to himself while bracing himself to the ground he was standing on there was more to this cave then he thought though he wasn't to surprised this was Tenru Island there sacred ground there was much here he was unsure of.

    it seems they are ready for you now. Good luck, Apollo. I will see you inside... "
     he said to Apollo.  Before Apollo could say a word he took a few steps back.  and vanished into the darkness.  and without a trace or a word he was gone and a side from the monsters growling he was alone...again.  He looked around the cave then at the seven doors shaking his head a little.  How could he just disappear like that without magic.  there was no trace not even from the metal pair of boots he was wearing.  The first guild master was really something Apollo was sure there was much her could learn a lot from Leonard and was now more determined to find him deeper inn the cave.  

    As he took a single step into the cave he sighed shaking his head a little.  he pulled out his gun checkmate and walked forward into a cave but as he entered more something felt off like a piece of him was missing or something strange like that.  He sighed thinking about it but then heard Leonard's voice "The cave will test you in three areas. This is the first. Can you survive this darkness? And all it surprises?"  Apollo stood there wondering about what he said by that statement.  what did he mean by that what surprises were waiting for him deeper in the cave what was lurking in the darkness.

    Apollo walked forward his gun keeping it low as he entered the cave slowly looking around slightly.  He could hear the dripping water and a few pebbles falling from the ceiling.  He sighs looking at the darkness as he then stopped the feeling growing inside him he took a few steps forward as he then heard a screech and then next thing he knew has was smacked to the ground.  He then skidded against the floor in pain looking at the monster who just screeched and roared at him with blood lust in his eyes.  Apollo could tell this beast wasn't playing around anymore it was serious about hurting him.  As he got up he looked at the beast growled at him and rushed him.  he quickly jumped out of the way and spun checkmates cylinder to promote him self to a knight but then he didn't feel any power since he usually felt.  usually he felt light on his feet and swift.  he then looked up at the beast show was going to smack at him.

    He then jumped out of the way barely dodging the beast's attack.  he could feel the paws air flow of the attack as it flowed past him.  he then rain catching himself and stumbled against the wall.  He panted then he sighed putting checkmate away looking at the beast "Magic nullification field huh"  he panted looking a little startled at the beasts speed for it's size. he then looked around as the beast turned charging towards him. He had to find a strategy to beat this monster he would die in this cave.  He would grip his hands in a ball and determined not to die. he then looked at the rocks above and behind him.  He then remembered the trembling from earlier and examined the rocks closer seeing some looser ones.  He then looked at the beast wondering if he could make a rock fall on it and slay it that way.  

    This was all he had going for him if this didn't work he would have to run.  It was scary to Apollo being powerless to this types of things.  He was forced to think about what he was going to do and use his wit and he would have to think on his feet.   though he hasn't  been in this type of spot before having a bigger enemy then him and not being able to defend himself,  He felt it was ironic since this was his hie magic it is what he has dedicated his life to learning about. Apollo thought about What she should do he wanted to win...He wanted to prove he could do this to everyone He was worthy of being here.

    As the beast charge Apollo readied himself looking at the monster charging towards him.  he then saw then beast charge at him.  He then took a deep breath to calm his nerves and then he jumped out of the way as it bashed it's head against the wall Apollo grinned. At the very last second he jumped out of the way of the monster there was a hard thud as he landed against the wall.  then the whole cave shook and rocks feel onto the beasts and caused him to collapse to the ground. Apollo then went over to it but then it started to disappear. "what the hell.." Apollo examined it further the saw a piece of paper appear where it was.  He then reached down and picked the note up reading it.  The note read as followed. You'll need this item to start a challenge and retrieve what is yours.  Apollo looked confused at the letter rubbing his head for a moment.

    What was this item that he had to retrieve some object.  he then scanned the note again wondering what the object could be.  He then looked at the second part the retrieve what is yours part of the note.  Considering he was on an exam he assumed it wasn't treasure.  then he thought of it being symbolism but hen why the item,  no that wasn't it either he could only assume that was his magic but then what item would he need to do it.  what was the first part of the message what was the item that he would need.  there was an item he needed to do this but what kind of item was the question.  it said he would need it to start the dual but what kind of item.  It wouldn't be a key that would be far to obvious for that to be the case no this was a test  he would need to think about this.  Then it hit him "A gauntlet..."  he said thinking about it more.  that was a common way people would start duels in history and it was just uncommon enough to work out for this challenge.   He decided to think about it as he walked forward into the cave.

    As he walked he kept silent as he walked forward and then listened the last time he he didn't listen he got attacked that wasn't going to happen again.  As he walked it only got darker and this mean he couldn't see a thing but the dimly lit corridors he was shaking a little.  The first guild master of Fairy Tail was surly watching if he  couldn't do this then how...he then stopped and took a deep breath.  He wasn't here to to impress anyone he was here to pass his B rank up exam and that is what he was going to do he at least owed  her that much.  he touched his pocket where his pocket watch was in and took a breath.  He then looked forward and picked  up his pace quietly moving forward making sure to stay quiet  but pick up his pace more.

    He then saw something you a head.  a entrance to something. but to what was the question.  he move quieter getting down low.  He peered around the corner carefully seeing a gigantic stone golem behind it there was a wall full of treasure..or something.  it looked more like a wall of random junk but he then saw the gauntlet confirming his thought process.  he then looked across the room he then had an idea but he would have to move fast but be careful. he then took off his suits black coat he then picked up a stone off the ground the plan was to use the darkness to his advantage sneak close then throw the stone were he was distracting it, then he would grab the gauntlet and go for  the exit.  that was if the plan worked it it didn't then Apollo would run for the exit or have to fight...Apollo groan hoping it would work. with that he threw the coat over him as hugged the wall as he slinked into the room.

    As Apollo shimmied silently as possible along the wall he remained completely silent.  his hearing was what he was relying in for this plan to work he either had to hear the monster or listen for it to move at all.  As he keep going he thought about how a childish tactic like this was even working at all.  He then blinked closing his eyes.  Here goes nothing...he thought to himself as he threw the stone back towards where he came from then a very brief moment of silence then he heard the golem slowly stomp his way toward his direction.  Apollo not only remind silent but he was as stiffer then a board.  the stomping was right next to him at this point but he kept calm if he were to freak out then he would surly parish since he couldn't dodge it at this range.  It then kept walking past Apollo his most dangerous hunch was correct, that it didn't have night vision it was simply a defensive golem.  after a second he looked over his coat. seeing it almost there he held onto his coat and quickly but quietly went for the gauntlet.  As he grabbed it the golem turned seeing  him with the gauntlet Apollo froze and then the stone golem let out a roar running toward him with great speed. Apollo's eyes widened then he readied himself

    Apollo still had absolutely no intention of fighting this thing there was no way he could break through it's stone exterior as it got close it raised both arms into the air ready to slam down on them.  Apollo then noticed a small gap between it's legs. Apollo gulped and then took another deep breath. and as it brought it's arms down with great might he would run and roll under the golems body. he looked back as he began to run seeing the golem in presuit after him. he then saw the doorway out of this area. He gave it everything he had running towards the exit. then the golem lunged at him. he then dived to the side and looked at the floor where it had left a crater in the floor. Apollo then got up and kept running to the door.  He was almost there went he went to punch Apollo from behind he jumped thought the door and looked back hearing a thud and a roar. it couldn't fit through the door and couldn't break through. Apollo took a minute to put his coat on and then he looked at the gauntlet.  he then put the gauntlet on his hand and kept going on. He entered a new room in the middle of the room with a sword in the ground below int then behind it seven entryways behind it.  Apollo walked up to the throne and sword looking at it then as he approached he heard the earth slam behind him and the entryway he just cam from was gone.  this spelt trouble form him as he turn facing the door hearing cackle of something like that behind him.  He readied himself gulping a little then taking a deep breath reading himself again.

    Post by Sir Leonard on 31st January 2016, 9:39 pm

    Meanwhile, back in the throne situated deep down in the bowels of the mountain's far end, Leonard was watching through a lacrima vision. It detailed every single move and decision Apollo made thus far. And as he sat down with his right elbow in the rest and his hand rubbing his chin, while the other ram just rested and the other arm rest, he couldn't help but feel impressed. Now that Apollo struck down the sword, the field dispersed and he can move on in the next stage of his exam: surviving in the wilderness.

    He slowly stood up from hi stone-carved chair and slowly made it down the winding staircase that leads up to it. His steps were surprisingly quiet. As if he wasn't wearing any footwear. But that would be reckless because the stone floor of the cave isn't exactly smooth. It can hurt and wound your feet if you don't wear anything for your feet. Perhaps he was wearing something else? It was too dark to see.

    Leonard made a few turns here and there through the stone tunnels. Pillars would pass him in the left, and right. He only walked a few miles, as he took him only about 4 minutes to get where Apollo was. That was only because he knew the cave very well, every crack and crevice was a shortcut for him. What's more is that he never gets lost in it, no matter how dark it can be.

    Now he was standing in front of an opening of a tunnel. It was a couple of feet above where Apollo was. From there he congratulated the young man for making it through the first test. "You did very well Apollo, you have passed the first test. But there lies another challenge in front of you. What will you do? When there is no one to help you, but the world itself..." he spoke. Loud enough to create echoes all through out the cavern so as to avoid detection. He slowly slid down and crept close to Apollo. Sneaking low and subtle, while hiding the magic power he possessed so as not to be seen, and even sensed by the most skilled of mages And using the sword and dagger he ReQuipped earlier in the mouth of the cave, he cut Apollo on the back of his leg, waist and right arm. He also disarmed him of any equipment he currently might have on. "Survive through here until you get to the tunnel's end at the far side of this section of the cave, Apollo. You're nearly there to finding me." he boomed once more in his dark voice that echoed out again in the hollow cave.

    Afterwards, he climbed back up to the tunnel he got out of and snapped his fingers. The cave began to move again as it signalled that the next batch of monsters Apollo must face must prepare.

    One was a multi-headed dragon with wings. It was of a size appropriate to boast strength, but still move through the cave with the swiftness of a snake. And with its head that had the bone density of a T-Rex, breathe different magical elements. Fire, Ice, Lightning, Light, Shadow, Earth, Poison and Steel, they will make sure that the trespasser would have little chance of resisting its attack.

    The other was a swarm queen. It lives basking in the presence of her children. Workers, Warriors, Scouts, they would all wear Apollo down if he ever stumbles in the wrong path. What's worse is that the swarm will not stop to disturb Apollo in his quest for survival until their queen is dead.


    While the monsters made their move, to position themselves in vital areas for survival such as the underground river that can be found flowing in the middle of the cavern, Leonard can be found making his way up back his throne, but this time his steps clanked to the sound of steel boots once more, showing that even in his heavy armored state, he can do stealth missions as was evidenced earlier. Returning to the position he had when he was watching Apollo in the first stage, he activated his viewing lacrima once more, eagerly awaiting how the mage will perform in the next stage before him.

    Apollo stood there gripping the sword feeling his magic returning to him.  After defeating the monsters to get here he sighed a little shaking his head then smiled.  He was tuned again and now that he could protect himself this was a whole new test this was now a test he could mange he then drew Checkmate again and looked around for were he needed to go feeling very optimistic about this now.  As he stood there he heard a booming voice from around the cave.  In a way it seemed the darkness it's self was talking to him but it was pitch black where he was.  He then identified the voice as master Leonards voice and it gave him a little ease but not much."You did very well Apollo, you have passed the first test. But there lies another challenge in front of you. What will you do? When there is no one to help you, but the world itself..."  Apollo smiled as he was complimented on the success of the first challenge. But as he got on to talking more he got confused.  Getting help from the world other then himself what on earth did that mean.  before he could speak he felt cuts on his leg and arm causing him to take a knee.  As he winced in a little pain he glared into the darkness know full well what happend.  Leonard had cut him but when... how did he not sense him coming it was so fast and quiet...  he then heard him speak again.   "Survive through here until you get to the tunnel's end at the far side of this section of the cave, Apollo. You're nearly there to finding me." He then gritted his teeth standing up a little holding his leg looking around and the voice disappeared.  he shook his head then went wide eyed noticing something very bad.  not only was the gauntlet from his hand missing but so was the sword.  when did he end up taking them from him then he could only assume that was what the cuts were for to distract him and make him focus on the pain and not his gear.  His eye's widened realizing checkmate was gone as well.  Leonard took that to no he wouldn't loss that it was given to him  from a village he saved that gun was one of his prized possessions,  it was the first thing anyone really gave him from a job other then money.  he stood up very made and went to reach for his watch for comfort.  As he reached for it he didn't feel it.  Apollo's eye's widened for a moment then he patted down his entire body.  no Leonard wouldn't have... he did.  Apollo looked to the ground blanking out for a minute.  "My...Eliza's...watch is gone......" he muttered to himself then  his magic power radiate from his body like a torrent of magic while this wasn't a symbol of power it was his emotions going haywire for a brief moment.  tears in his eye's he looked up screaming a little "LEONARD!!!!!"  he screamed loudly getting his magic under control. once he controlled the overflow he dashed down the path as fast as he could.  There were things you didn't do around Apollo in life three to be exact.  First you never hurt a defenseless person,  second you never hurt his guild or friends,  and finally you never take his watch from him without his consent.  All these things set him off more then usual.  A few tears in his eyes as he ran.  Apollo wasn't even focused to much on the exam anymore,  he just wanted that watch back,  to him that watch was worth more then his life and he would be damned if he would loss it.  While overall he would get it back that didn't matter anymore he just wanted it back.  As he ran he thought about Eliza again her smile, her voice and though about the day they left the orphanage and how she gave it to him so even in death she would be with him no matter what,  then the images of the dark mage killing her and him having to carry his first and only love's corpse all the way back to Magnolia himself and having a private funeral that he only attended since they were stray's.  He then looked up scowling madder then hell, there was a fire in his eye's a new determination to get to the end of the cave.  Even though Apollo was like this it didn't hurt his thought in battle at all to much the only thing is he lost a regardless for mercy and unless you present a damn good reason he couldn't go get it he would get it, or die trying.  He then ran into a large cavern and saw a beast guarding it.  It was a seven headed dragon looking creature like a hydra each head was a different color like the elements,  Apollo immediately  put two and two together. knowing each was a different element to get it's kill no matter what.  As Apollo ran towards the beast it turned and roared at him.  Apollo stopped glaring at him very angered. "Out of my damn way right now.." he said full of rage.  The heads then lunged at Apollo going to bite at him. Apollo then took a breath "I said move!"  he yelled as all of the heads lunged at him.  as they all closed in he clasped his hands together "Mirror Wall!"  he called out with the intention not to block them head on.  It came flying up below the there jaws and slammed into then pulling them up causing there heads to bash against the ceiling of the cavern.  as he relieved they looked a little dazed as he took this time to jump to the side of the beast and keep running.  As he ran though the beast took flight and chased after him very angry and wanting to kill him.  Apollo then heard something a head  it was skitters of creatures and spider looking they were covering the floor coming at him.  he knew this spelt trouble he then heard a breath weapon being charged having dragon slayers in his guild he knew the sound all to well,  as if he didn't have enough going on.  He then saa few spider creature jump at hm he couldn't stop in fear of the dragon and got more angry.  "no way i'm stopping now!"  He called out  "Transit Armor!" he called as he glowed gold and it appeared as golden light was acting as armor.  as they jump he was yanked to the side and then he rad they breath attacks fired an he was yanked towards the ceiling he saw he breath weapon nail the creatures and then smirked.  he would use the beast as his weapon as he floated there from the armor he saw as on fired the other were charging to maximize there effects.  he then kicked off the ceiling down towards the creatures and as they lept towards him he heard the hydra like creature fire and he was yanked to the upper left towards where he need to go since the armor detected going back would put him in danger. another bunch of bugs were cooked and Apollo smirked. he kep this up going down the caveren,  he didn't even care he was literally dancing with death at this point he just wanted to get through at this point and that was what he was going to do. Eventually he saw where they were coming from.  there looked to be a hive queen making them but the small bug scattered as the hydra cam closer. Apollo then as the hydra was on him he gulped as it charged one final breath weapon all mouths pointed at him as his armor landed he saw the swarm queen get up and lung at Apollo.  he knew what need to be done.  He ended heis transit armor and got ready waiting till the very last second.   " Energy Flare!" he said pointing blanking the ground shooting himself to the left to the outer edge of the blast "Armor of Agies!"  he called coating himself in armor getting nicked by the blast.  he heard the swarm queen howl as it was dying the creatures with it and Apollo's armor shattered chucking him down it hurt a lot still as it send him pummeling into the ground bouncing a little bit.  He panted standing up the hydra now close to him and charging to bite hat him. his coat was in shreds and he bruised up a little. he then glared being done hating this.  it was a waste of time he wanted what was his now. he then dodged left and saw another mouth coming and jumped out of the way but then saw something interesting.  one howled in pain as one had [u]bite into it's neck tring to get Apollo he then knew what he had to do.  he then ran behind it dodging mouths.  as he got behind it where he could maneuver around even in his condition he prepared himself. as it lung at him he then summoned his platform shield at a angle and used as a spring board as they snapped at were he was.  After barley dodging it mouths he was now above it. he grabbed on to the steel head holding on for dear life. It started to flail around and then the other heads went for it.  he then allowed himself to be flung off hitting the ceiling and the other heads chopping into it.  then they all howled collectively being  injured he then looked at them all.  "Trinity Shield flying buzz saws!"  he called as he made three spinning discs appear.  they then slammed into the beast necks sending them to the floor allowing Apollo to land onto it's back.  the beast then turned there heads enraged and all went to bite him.  he then timed it right and used his feet to kick off ti causing all them to bate it self it then howled and fell defeated the heads breathing heavily unable to lift any more.  Apollo stood up a little wobbly shaking his head.  "Sorry you were just in the way" he said and then sprinted off battered and bruised up from that fight not caring though.  Apollo was going off Adrenalin for that fight and even now he was fueled by his desire to get that watch back.  Apollo was sure that Leonard wouldn't put any harm to it but he wasn't will to put anything when it came to that it was all he had from his past and without that...he might as well not have a past.  he then came up to a pitch black room as the walls slammed close behind him. the room was pitch black and he was unable to see anything. "damn it.."  he muttered darkly looking around he then closed his eye's focusing his sense's preparing for the worst.

    Post by Sir Leonard on 2nd February 2016, 12:06 pm

    The cave was a place of primordial origin. Meaning that no sign of modern society can be found in it. Except maybe for the lacrima Leonard had placed in front of the throne to view the progress of the mages taking his exams. But one would wonder where he got the pizza and juice he is currently enjoying right now. The box rested on the right arm rest of his stone chair, the lid was open revealing a Hawaiian flavored pizza, with 1/4 of it was already gone, presumably eaten by Leonard already. Opposite it was the four-seasoned juice on a 300mL bottle. It was very mysterious where and when these objects got here since Leonard didn't bring them from outside. Nor was there a store anywhere in the island he can buy it from.

    He even one slice of pizza in his hand, the tip had already bitten off. And on the other, the bottle of juice. He watched with discontent as the silent cave was filled with echoes coming from the sounds of the performance he was assessing, the lights flickered and flashed different colors of light as they burst in a spectacular array. But his face was devoid of emotion. Leonard doesn't know how to show his facial emotions and expression while he is chewing on a delicious piece of Hawaiian pizza. However his thinking processed many different comments, they were too many that he might even get lost in them. He had so many things to say but he can't because he was still chewing. It would go on like this for seconds while he starred at Apollo's performance.

    He swallowed the mushy bits that he had on his mouth that was the result of chewing for 4 seconds. And once his throat was clear he said to himself "Well... That's one way of dealing with it, I suppose. But he totally missed the point... And so did I." He was referring to his mistake of taking Apollo's watch. The view would then take a simple look at the stuff he took from Apollo, one of which was the watch that made Apollo berserk. The items were placed on a silver bowl on a surface that can basically described as a stump made of rock, an artificial table so to speak. He touched the rim of the bowl and thought about giving them back, Apollo did pass stage 2, but just barely. I should give these back... he thought to himself as he flipped the bowl, making all its contents spill to a hole, and the bowl to make a clanking noise as it hit the floor.

    While the objects were sliding down the hole, they turned and slid like it was fun kiddie slide. The hole should lead to the far end of the cave section where Apollo was. It was more of a dropped prize when you won something. Similar to slot machines in casinos or the claw machines found in arcades.

    Meanwhile, Leonard made his way back near Apollo to do the same thing he did last time, echoing his voice throughout the cavern. This time, he didn't have the regular sword and dagger he used earlier, but a very specific dagger that can snuff one's Magic Power out of the body. "An impressive display of force, Apollo. But you missed the point of that stage. That stage was meant to show how well you can survive in the wild. How you can use nature's resources to live. You can't just go killing every wild animal you see while wander now, can you?" he scolded the mage for his performance. But he must admit that he did pretty well in their in disposal and so he added "But as always, you showed incredible tactical knowledge and skilled when you battled my pets. So... You pass... barely... Through that arch is the last stage of your exam. You'll also find your stolen items there."

    At the arch, Leonard waited for the perfect time to strike Apollo with his dagger. Once he nears the objects, he would slide past him repeatedly, slicing him on the back and on the front alternately, stealing as much MP he can from him as possible. He stole about 30% of his remaining MP from all the cuts he had made. "Now, seeing as you like to use that head of your so much, you will face a puzzle. One that can very well end your life's hustle. If you step on the wrong way, monsters will hold you at bay." with those words cloaked by shadow, Leonard fled back to where he can watch the whole thing unfold.

    The rhyming words of Leo were a clue to what lies ahead.

    A series of traps and doors with timers are littered across the next part of the cave. The exit lies to the very top of the complex. Platforms he had to jump to leads straight to it. But different puzzles must be solved in order to get the platform to a jump-able height. Puzzle range from simple symbols that must be arrange to form the proper picture, or a well of water that must be poured out to increase of decrease the height of a platform. The traps doors are very well camouflaged to the floors and walls to make sure those who do not step lightly will activate them. Different pressure plate will activate different traps to stall his progress. And if Apollo was really unlucky, he might step in the one that could close the door to the exit and he'd had to start all over again. Or he might step in the the plate that will unleash the monsters. Sand wraiths. Fast moving, blade carrying sons of bitches that can't be killed because they're made of sand. The best Apollo can do when that happens is to set them on fire, turning them to glass.

    Now Leonard has arrived back at his throne, eyeing the lacrima once more, preparing to see what the mage will do in this particular... Problem.

    As he stood there in the darkness the room was quiet not even an echo of a water droplet would be heard. Apollo stood there for a minute then heard Leonards voice again. it Echoed around the cavern again. it was as if e was the darkness and it was directly speaking to him."An impressive display of force, Apollo. But you missed the point of that stage. That stage was meant to show how well you can survive in the wild. How you can use nature's resources to live. You can't just go killing every wild animal you see while wander now, can you?" He sounded very upset that Apollo didn't do what the true point of the task was. Apollo looked confused about why he passed he thought he followed his orders to the letter but i guess not. Apollo thought for a moment he was told to use natures resources to survive and the beast was part of nature and that's how hie beat all of the scarabs coming at him and then he used the dragons mouths to beat well the dragon hydra. But I guess that wasn't the point after all. Apollo sighed a little hoping he didn't just ruin the exam for himself looking around for Leonard. He then heard Leonard speak again. "But as always, you showed incredible tactical knowledge and skilled when you battled my pets. So... You pass... barely... Through that arch is the last stage of your exam. You'll also find your stolen items there." Apollo grinned a little nodding happy that he still passed his exam regardless though next time he would have to put more thought into it then he saw arch way open up lighting up the room. Apollo held his hand up the light a little blinding and irritating his eyes. It was at that moment he felt pain all around his body getting cut from the front back and all around. his eye's widened in pain after it was all don't Apollo fell onto all fours panting heavily. He was in a lot of pain and not only that but it felt as if a chunk of magic was stolen from him at the same time. he looked around for Leonard panting heavily not happy only fueling his poor mood more wanting to get through this. he then head him speak. "Now, seeing as you like to use that head of your so much, you will face a puzzle. One that can very well end your life's hustle. If you step on the wrong way, monsters will hold you at bay." He looked up panting holding his side as he got up. He wasn't use to being in this much pain since he used shields and usually avoid the damage. His legs felt wobbly but he looked up at the platforms and passed them up a cliff was the exit the end goal. Apollo looked at the first platform approaching it. It looked to be simple enough he thought to himself, just follow that platforms up. No there was more to it then that it wouldn't be this easy it's was the final stage of the test and Apollo needed to think he couldn't afford to make a careless mistake, he was badly hurt and had barley had any magic power left. He sighed torn a little wanting to get his this that meant so much to him back but if he died it wouldn't help him. He took a breath and stepped away from the platform to think about things more. "What to do now...I could just try it disable the traps but if i fail any that means certain failure but if i don't use the platforms i can't ascend." he sat sighing a little looking at the cliff seeing unless you have earth magic or something that cliff was impossible to climb. He looked back at the platform which were spaced out all on different levels then each other He then smiled widely and started to laugh though it hurt a little. Apollo then stood up looking at the top this would be easier then he thought. He figured out a way to reach the top without triggering a single trap. He then made the first step walking on it. "Sorry Leonard this test will be over before you know it" he grinned. "Free Forming Shields Stairs!" he called out making a winding stair case winding up going around the platforms carefully making sure none of the shields touched them. He then slowly walked up holding his side in a little bit of pain. Apollo couldn't help but laugh a little. He could tell for certain that this wasn't what he was suppose to do but he was following the instructions given. He used his brain and thought of a way around the traps and obsticals. As he walked up the stair case he looked around panting a little. He looked at the platforms as e passed. some were filled with water while some had ruins on them needing to be ordered. he actually stopped walking for a few of them stopping looking at them solving them in his head using his shields to replicate. the one he chose specifically was a puzzle that was a box that had a different symbol on each side. it looked a little like a rubix cube in a way except each symbol was the same. Apollo made a replica of the box in front of him using his shields and then kept on walking tring to solve the puzzle. each letter was different. they were different languages Apollo knew some of them but nod all of the he had to do some guess work. the question read around the box. Apollo looked at the question sighing a little confused turning the box each way he could eventually solving it half way to the top. This only made Apollo happier that he didn't take the platform route. As he looked at some of the puzzles and traps some were even hard for him to solve. He could already tell he would be having a very rough time if he had gotten any of these wrong but then again he didn't have to worry about it so he continued on up. Apollo loved to learn things and he knew once the exam ended he would get his stuff so he was a little more calm and collected. he then kept walking once he solved it. He then saw the ending insight and sighed a little. he thought about everything he had done to get to this point and all of it's efforts. Whether it was fighting the vampires to get here or simply finding some lost jewelry he knew he was ready. He then thought to all the people who helped him get here...then about how her realized you can't live life by yourself and that you needed peoples help in order to get a head. He smiled happy he came to Fairy Tail and learned that lesson. Fairy Tail was truly a one of a kind guild and he knew that there wasn't another guild like it anywhere in the whole world and the bonds he made would last a life time. Then the thought of his curse came to mind but he shook his head. He was strong enough to protect them this time, this time he wouldn't let anyone get hurt. As he got to the top he stopped turning around. he looked at all of the platforms he had skipped and smiled. "We did it we made it to the top..." he said thinking about the exam and what he needed to learn. He first thought back to the very first lesson when he got in. How he had to fight the monsters without magic. He smiled a little more learning to do this without magic was a very important trait that he would need to work on. though he passed he won't always be able to sneak around his enemies or drop a rock on his head. It he didn't have his tactical mind set in that fight he would have been a lot worse off then before. He nodded then thought about the second part of the test and about what master Leonard had said. Apollo sighed knowing the only reason he went in head first was because he wen berserk because of the watch. To many it was childish and uncalled for. Apollo looked away not expecting anyone to truly know how he felt about that item but he would need to learn to control his emotions better doing that when he had a team mate with him could easily get them killed or worse. He nodded acknowledging he needed to work on this wondering what master Leonard was thinking of how he handled this test. Apollo knew he wanted him to take the platforms up and be challenged but Apollo knew in his current condition he probably would have failed. he looks up HE did say to use his brain and that is exactly what he did. in a battle you should find a way to win that benefits you and this was no different he found a creative way up without any risk. Though he was ready to get scolded again as he turned towards the arch way ready. Apollo entered looking around seeing his things laying there. He walked over expecting a trap grabbing his watch and checkmate putting them away smiling happily now that he had his watch back. He then kept looking around the room it was empty. He was told it was an exit but usually this is when leonard would come and talk to him he sighed waiting there unsure what he would have to do next.

    Once more at Leonard's private "theater" where the same atmosphere was maintained. Flickering lights, soft sounds and all, with a box of pizza at the side, but this time only 1/2 of it was left, and the bottle of juice almost empty as Leonard would shake it softly but the liquid inside produced audible splashing sounds as it was being shaken. But this time, the sounds were... different. Unlike the previous two stages of the exam were the audio was more on blasting, roaring, and shouting, the sounds were simple and it is the only thing he can hear, and they would repeat over and over again.

    We can see Leonard sitting casually on his throne as always, with eyes fixed on the screen that were almost closed, as if appearing uninterested in what was going on, for he had expected things to be a little cooler or at the very least peaceful in this part of the exam. He had placed all of the hard traps on the higher platforms anyway.There's no way he'd trigger any traps yet... he said to himself while enjoying another slice of pizza...

    It had been 2 minutes since the final stage began. He still heard the same sound of footsteps, Leonard was starting to wonder why. And as he took another gulp at his beverage, he looked at the screen with much curiosity. He thought by now Apollo would have reached the half-way mark of his last hurdle. But when his saw gave him a big shock. It was so big that it opened his eyes and squirt out his drink like a sprinkler. This accident with the liquid made him cough aloud and hard that he had to beat his chest just to widen it up."I can't believe it..." he said softly as he was wiping his mouth off of the juice."I never thought he could do that..." he continued as witnessed what was being done by Apollo...

    Using the mage's shields, he was able to create stairs. Yes, stairs. These stairs made it possible for Apollo to by pass every trap and puzzle he had laid out for him, even the 3 remaining monsters that were impervious to all attacks except for fire. Leonard would continue to stare still in shock as he held on to the edge of his seat. After a few seconds the thought had already sink in, and smile crept on his lips. He was truly impressed by the performance, and he couldn't believe that he had underestimated him. He giggled at the thought as he lowered his head and shook it sideways slowly, as if he was gesturing "no".Looks like I gotta go greet him congratulations... he thought as he stood up and went down the stairs, walking slowly.

    By the time Apollo had reached the exit of the last stage, Leonard had already made it down the staircase and was walking towards the successful mage, and as he did, he clapped his hands slowly, it's sound echoing throughout the walls revealing his location."I must say I'm really impressed, Apollo Gredel Valaris. That was... unexpected." he said out loud. And though his voice echoed out, Apollo could surely pinpoint where it was coming from, because it was loudest from where Leonard was standing."That is indeed a truly remarkable display on intellect and magic." he added as he was finally directly in front of the test-taker."It looks like you have what it takes to survive in the ever powerful world of magic. And for all the feats you have showcased today, I proclaim that you are indeed worthy of becoming a B-Rank mage. You passed. I expect more things from you in the future." he said, delivering the message with great pride evident in his voice. He felt that in his absence he has left Fairy Tail to truly capable hands. As he continued to talk, his tone would be lighter, but still deep and bold showing his age and ruggedness."Come on, let's go. You must be hungry and tired, here take a break with me. There's half of a Hawaiian pizza waiting for you on my lounge." he turned his back on him and walked back towards the stairs leading to the throne, expecting Apollo to follow.

    OOC: You passed! Now reply to this post (no word count requirement) and we'll close this one.
