    the strain of being a magical girl { Sorano }

    Post by Nessa Cordelia Lux on 5th August 2018, 2:59 pm





    The door of the Fairy Tail guild opened, and through it stumbled a very tired looking Nessa. With the likeness to an undead being, she slumped through the guild, her usual energy and perkiness currently no where to be seen. Her eyes held heavy bags, and her skin was a shade paler than usual. All a result of the massive magical change that had occurred within her, just six days ago.

    See there were two reasons Nessa was so tired, one because earlier that week, she had been gifted the magic of summoning Valkyries. Unlike her Starlight Maiden magic, which she had grown up developing over time, this magic had infiltrated her body in a single hit. And the sudden invasion of magical power figuring itself out and trying to settle within her body had left her severely weakened. Also, there was the fact when she entered the world of Valhalla, meaning she had actually lost three days of Earth time, and upon her return had an almost jetlag sensation to cope with on top.

    Secondly, last night she had actually felt well enough to head out, deciding to pick up something from her local sweet shop. She had got the creepiest feeling that someone was watching her in the store. But when she had looked around the shop, the only person she could find was her and cashier. It couldn't have been the cashier either because she been chatting away on her lacrima phone to some boyfriend. Yet, she had definitely felt it. The feeling didn't leave either, she felt it practically all the way home. Although, when she told Sebastian, he started talking about ghosts, freaking her out and as a result ridding her of her ability to sleep.

    That damn cat... She thought, as she made her way over to a table, sliding groggily into a seat. She rested her elbows on the table, and buried her face in her hands. She had tried to catch some more sleep this morning but her house was running amok with busy-bodies. Her Nephew was feeling particularly rambunctious and wanted to play. Additionally her Aunt had her Women's institute over for brunch, loud cackles and far to many questions for Nessa to have been able to cope with. So she had left. The guild was the one place she figured she might find some peace.

    STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK YOUR BONES, BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CHANCE AGAINST WORDS.


    Sorano Granon leaned over the reception desk, engaged in a rough conversation with the fairies that ran the holographic screens. Having improved her linguistic skills in their language to the point where she could communicate freely, it fascinated the academically inclined part of the girl to learn about the creatures’ lifestyles and stories. The current fey was just finishing up a story of how several of their friends had lured a lost traveler into a lake full of magical beasts, bringing an end to his pathetic life, when Nessa walked into the room. The letter mage blinked slowly at her haggard appearance, surprised at the unfamiliar sight. Usually looking bright, perky, and full of optimistic energy, the white-haired mage looked strangely depressed. Whatever could be the cause? Although the girl did do her best to appear focused upon the fey’s story, her polite action was quickly seen through.

    The fairy, being extremely perceptive as per their nature would instantly notice the shift in attention, crossing their arms and pouting in a teasing manner before waving Sorano off towards Nessa. “Are you sure?” The harsh words floated easily from the letter mage’s throat, and the fairy flapped their wings roughly in response before fluttering away to become deeply engrossed in a screen. A soft sigh escaped the girl’s throat, and she turned around towards the older mage. It seemed it was time for some human interaction again…

    Step by step, Sorano made her way through the lobby, edging easily past the tables towards Nessa. On the way, she stopped at the bar for a nice, fresh juicebox as had become the norm (wow, these things are hella addicting, blame Althea) before flopping down next to her guild mate. “Good morning, Ms. Nessa, how are you doing? You appear to be rather tired.” Her very extraordinarily intelligent observation would be quickly confirmed by a glance at the woman’s dejected aura, heavy and dark with exhaustion and frustration.

    “Just got back from a tough job, perhaps?” Work as a mage could be horribly inconvenient. Stakeouts, overnight work was all common for someone in this field, and Sorano had herself been subject to such pains in the past as well. Even with this layer of relatability, however, the situation felt uncomfortable. Making casual conversation with someone still felt uncertain and foreign to the emotionless youth, but she did try to connect better with the members these days and this was yet another one of the guild master’s awkward attempts to achieve some level of humanity.

    Nessa still had her face buried in her hands as Sorano approached her, oblivious to the world, she let out an exasperated sigh, The exhaustion in her relieved only slightly by the fact she had taken a seat, being on your feet when you felt like this was not easy. Maybe I should have some tea. She wondered, the caffeine in tea wasn't as effective as coffee, but she preferred the taste much more.

    Nessa noticed the presence of someone as they slid down next to her. Slowly she pulled her hands away from her face to look at them. Her tired features appearing mildly surprised to see none other than her guild master sitting there. Since joining the guild she had been so busy doing jobs that she hadn't actually had much of a chance to interact with the guild master. Often they saw each other in passing but rarely had they exchanged pleasantries. In fact, if memory were to serve, the last full conversation the two had, was most likely when she made Nessa a guild member. So much had happened since then, but she was pleased that the girl had decided to approach her. Even if she wasn't exactly looking her best. She offered the letter mage a sleepy smile as she spoke to her. She nodded, sitting up a little. She didn't feel it polite to slouch in the guild masters presence.

    "Not so much a job, I recently made a magically contract with some Valkyries in exchange for the ability to summon them. My body's not used to the new making so, it's kind of taking a toll on me. Plus the exceed I live with Sebastian thought it'd be funny to scare the hell out of me with ghost stories last night, so I haven't had much sleep." She explained to Sorano. She glanced around the room and spotted a member of the bar staff cleaning up glasses, "Sorry, could I get some tea please?" She asked politely, the girl nodded at her before heading back to the bar.

    Nessa looked back at Sorano, "What about you, how are things?" She asked Sorano. A few moments later the girl returned with some tea, milk and sugar. Nessa set about preparing her tea the way she liked it, a little dash of milk and two spoonfuls of sugar. Once all the extras were added, she began to stir the tea with her spoon. Looking at Sorano in wait for her reply.

    Approaching the exhausted light mage, Sorano sat down gently, trying not to scare her. She still remembered how stiff the woman had been upon joining, shocked by the presence of a guild master. Luckily, it appeared her approach had been effective, as Nessa lifted her head up and gave the younger girl a tired smile. While she did sit up a little straighter, it seemed progress had been made in relaxing the newer members and helping them integrate into the guild. Well, it had been several months already, hadn’t it? If they were still so nervous at the sight of the guild master, someone who could often be seen sitting around the guild in varying shades of exhaustion and emotionlessness, Fairy Tail would be a complete failure as a mage’s guild meant for anyone to feel safe in.

    Listening to Nessa’s explanation, Sorano nodded slowly, understanding well the cause of her guild mate’s exasperation. Magical contracts of foreign nature and pesky exceeds were both things she’d had experience with. A quiet sigh filled her lungs as the youth remembered the tricky agreement she had formed with the angels after being randomly summoned to heaven once, and the risky ritual done with a fellow Wizard Saint to purify a rampaging yokai. Contracts and complicated magic always took a lot out of someone, even the now well-experienced letter mage. As for the exceed part, Hoshi had become like a nagging mother after overcoming many of her fears over the four years the two had worked together. Constantly bugging the guild master to go sleep, or get out and interact with people…absolutely terrible.

    “Yeah, I totally get that. Growing as a mage comes with its own pains, doesn’t it…” Pausing briefly as the bar staff placed a cup of tea before Nessa, Sorano took a slow sip of her juice before answering Nessa’s question. “Nothing much, honestly. Well, been negotiating the relationships between Fairy Tail and a couple of other guilds, trying to form a friendly connection of sorts. Maybe bring more jobs to the table for everyone. And, of course, there’s still all the fuss around what happened to Leila Vergious. The disappearance of Fiore’s God of Eden isn’t something to scoff at.” While her voice remained cold and emotionless, the letter mage attempted using more colloquial language, hoping it would put guild members more at ease. “Definitely not quite as taxing as what you’re doing – that’s some tough stuff.”

    Nessa sighed, sitting back in her seat, she brought her tea to her lips and began to blow on it in an attempt to cool it so she could take a sip. "Yeah, It is, but at the same time, I'm glad I feel like I can finally be useful to others. It was so frustrating at first, but now, now I can actually make a difference." She told a guild master, she hadn't lied to the girl when they had first met, she really did want to help people. Now she could actually could do that, she loved it. It was just as thrilling and rewarding as she had hoped for. Despite the little snag here and there. "A little exhaustion is worth it." She added honestly, she was tired and it was rare that she didn't come back from a job sore and achy all over. But a couple days rest and recovery and she was back out there, doing it all over again.

    Nessa paid attention as Sorano responded to her question, nodding with interest at the mention of connecting with other guilds. "Really? That's sounds awesome. What guilds are you thinking?" She asked, thinking it would be nice to get to know more people, and see what other kinds of mages were out there. For the most part, most of the mages she had met were mainly from Fairy Tail, and she had yet to go on a job with someone outside of her guild. She looked at her tea, she had heard a little about mages occasionally vanishing, and for a guild master too. That was scary stuff, Nessa was slowly learning that the world she had stepped out into to face wasn't as clear cut as she originally thought.

    She brought the tea forward, taking a cautious sip, it was still a little hot. But underneath the warm liquid, she enjoyed a brief moment of sweetness. Then put the tea down, looking back at her, she shook her head. "It's nothing, I'm just doing what I can to get stronger. Rolling with the punches as they say.  I'm sure running a guild has it's share of great struggles, I could never dream to do what you do. It must be pretty straining some times, but you do it so well." She told the guild master earnestly. She didn't know much but she knew Fairy Tail had gone through something really difficult before she arrived. It seemed to be a sore subject that others wouldn't share with the newer members. Whatever it was, Sorano had pulled them through it. That itself was an admirable feat.

    Seeing the glow of pride that came over her guildmate, Sorano nodded in satisfaction. As long as she was happy with where she was going, there was no need to worry. The letter mage was simple like that. “It is certainly rewarding to grow stronger.” Having started out as a weak little corn puff of a mage when arriving, she’d grown more and more confident in herself as time wore on. I mean, she was a guild master now – the shrimpy girl from three years past was no longer. “I’m glad you’re doing well, Miss Nessa.” Sorano was never much of a conversationalist, a shame knowing all the tongues the linguist could speak.

    “Well, Silver Wolf and the West Fiore Trading Company have all shown interest in business relationships. The guild masters are all very capable and noteworthy people, that’s for sure. Silver Wolf’s study and collection of magical artifacts could provide mercenary business and tools for us, while the WFTC’s trading services could be of great use to anyone. It should be a profitable deal if we pull it off.” The agreement was something the youth looked forward to – alliances meant strength, strength to keep the guild from ever falling into a dark age ever again. Despite her lack of feeling, Fairy Tail was a place that had raised her up from some of the worst years of her life. Even the busy professional lifestyle she led now was far preferable to being an uncontrollable mess.

    She took a slow sip of her juicebox, listening to Nessa speak. She was someone who would have fit in particularly well with the old Fairy Tail, the one based on doing what they thought to be right, never bending to any power – even the Magic Council. Unfortunately, that stubborn mindset was also what led to their near-demise. “Thank you, Miss Nessa. However, I don’t believe anyone’s life can rightfully be considered easy, no? I’m sure you have your own fair share of troubles that I could never understand – that’s the way it is with everyone. Besides, I was lucky enough to inherit an old guild with plenty of experience and resources. The six former guild masters had set everything up so nicely, it was much easier to recover after being placed in the position.” An overstatement. The move to and from Tetsukazu had taken a lot out of the guild. Despite their success in the end, Fairy Tail had suffered much spiritually and energetically under exile. But to Sorano, who dwelt little on the past? No big deal.

    “Please remember to take care of yourself though. Growing is important, but your own health is even more so.”

    Nessa smiled, she was doing well. Much better than she imagined. If you ignored the fact she was currently exhausted, everything had gone relatively smoothly. A couple of tough moments here, but she had progressed so quickly. She had Fairy Tail to thank for her progress. Who knew when she walked into the guild, a ball of nerves on that sunny Monday morning, her life to had flipped on it's head so drastically. But... in a good way. She brought the tea to her lips and took a sip, it had cooled a little know, still a tad hot but manageable. She savoured the sweet flavour of the sugary water. It would take a little bit of time to work but hopefully once she got a little caffeine in her she would wake up. Plus having a normal conversation seemed to be distracting her from how tired she was.

    Nessa listened as Sorano explained the potential alliance they were planning, she thought about the Guilds. Silver Wolf and the West Fiore Trading Company, she know of them, but only that they existed. Nessa didn't know much about the affairs of other guilds or magical politics. Her Father described it as a naïve obliviousness, Nessa had always had a very tunnelled view about life, enveloping herself in what was around her and paying little attention to anything else. She might know more had she actually met any one from either of those guilds, even in passing, but she hadn't. At least she didn't think she had. But as Sorano broke down the benefits to joining with them, she nodded along. "Wow, that sounds great. If there's anything you want me to do to help, please let me know. I'm not the brightest bulb but I've been told I'm good at talking to people" She told the Guild Master earnestly, wanting to offer help in any way she good. So far, she had done a bit for the guild in terms of her work success. But she felt like the more she contributed the better.

    As Sorano thanked her for her feedback and continued to talk about how the guild was set up for her. Nessa paid attention, learning a little more about the past of her beloved guild, even it was small. She beamed at Sorana as she advised her to take care of herself, "Oh don't worry about me, I'll be sure to take a break should I need to. But thank you." She told her.

    “Thank you for the offer, Miss Nessa.” Sorano offered her uncomfortable, forced smile that never seemed to quite belong on her stoic face. “At the moment we’re still working out the kinks, but some friendly social interaction if the alliance falls through will certainly have a good effect.” Nessa reminded her of the way Fairy Tail had been when she joined, filled with laughter, family, and constant fun with little regard to politics and regulations. Members had always done everything they could to contribute, and form tight relations with everyone in the guild. Even so, the guild’s transition couldn’t be helped. Perfection had to collapse at some point, and it had done so in one of the worst ways possible.

    Yet despite having left those days behind her, Sorano felt a strange swirl of comfort at the older mage’s presence. Perhaps she was more human than she had assumed. “That’s good, that’s good…” The response to Nessa’s comments would be absentminded almost, the girl sucking more of the fruit juice through the straw. Hey, Althea’s taste wasn’t all that bad after all. “I see the guild hasn’t converted you fully to our taste for juice yet?” Trying at a more lighthearted remark, the letter mage gestured at the colorful box before her. “Althea introduced us to this rather marvelous beverage, and I’m afraid many of our members are hopelessly addicted to it by now.” A look around the fairly empty guild would show a few of the clients sitting at tables with similar boxes, an almost comical sight to behold. A bar staff could be seen coming through the back of the bar with another crate or so of the sweet drink, grumbling under her breath as she shoved it into the large refridgerator.

    “Anyways, I know you’ve been here a while, but we haven’t talked too much, have we?” The guild master glanced over at the white-haired woman, hands dropping the rest against each other on the tabletop. “Do you have any questions or concerns so far? Are things going alright for you?”

     Nessa nodded eagerly as Sorano informed her that the best thing she could do was help build relations with the aforementioned guilds. "I'll do my part to take up jobs with their members and get to know them better." She told her. It shouldn't be too difficult to make that happen, "That is once I get some sleep first," She joked. She was still pretty tired, it didn't make sense to go on any jobs whilst her body was still recovering from taking on the Valkyrie Summoning magic. Once she felt okay again, she would make sure to keep good on her promise. She just hoped she made a good impression on them, for the sake of herself and her guild.

    She smiled at the comment about Juice, glancing at the stocks of it being carried through the bar with an amused expression, shaking her head. "Oh I love the juice here, it's amazing stuff really. I can definitely see the hype, normally I would have a carton at least. But to be honest, I really love a good cup of tea. I try not to have too much cause of all the sugar I add to it, but seeing as I'm so tired I figured today's a good day to make an exception." She said with a shrug, bringing her tea to her lips and taking a hearty gulp. It was at that perfect lukewarm temperature nod. Going down a treat, it's sweet flavour filling her with a sense of comfort. She didn't know how much affect the caffeine would have on her, it was a drink she enjoyed everyday after all. Her body probably had a slight tolerance to it by now. 

    "No, I suppose we haven't, ships in the night and all that. But I'm glad we got to have this chat, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to know more about you." She replied, she didn't want to push or pry. She was just intrigued, she could only ask and if her Guild Master didn't want to tell her that was okay. There was been certain thoughts and wonderings that had nagged on her mind, questions unanswered about her guild. She'd noticed things, things she wasn't sure about. She parted her lips as Sorano asked if she had questions, she did have them. But whether they were acceptable for her to ask, she was unsure. She thought about it for a moment, decided to go with a much more neutral question. "I guess I wouldn't mind knowing how the guild was formed? What was the purpose that inspired it's existence?" She asked, before answering the letter mage's additional query. "I'm progressing well I think, compared to how I was in the beginning. That job I did with Mura when I first joined, really showed me just how much I needed to grow. I feel like I'm starting to get there...slowly. But I still have a long way to go."

    STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK YOUR BONES, BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CHANCE AGAINST WORDS.


    A slight cloud of curiosity and intrigue seeped into the woman’s aura, and her questions afterwards would only prove the validity of Sorano’s observations. A slightest tinge of suspicion in the wavering colors around her brought a narrowing of the letter mage’s eyes, barely perceptible but there nevertheless. She’d have to tread slowly. Seeming to consider for a moment, the question that came from Nessa’s lips would be much less difficult to answer than the guild master had anticipated. With a slow nod, Sorano looked off towards the old guild door, remembering the day she’d joined as a new, uncertain mage. It was a shock to herself that she’d been here so long – people were constantly coming and going, and with the exceptions of Mura and Hana, there was almost no one left here who remembered the events of only a couple years ago.

    “I was not acquainted with the founders, naturally, but Fairy Tail used to be a big booming legal guild as I’m sure you’ve heard.” Fairy Tail’s fame had been quite something in its earlier days, the rowdy, cheerful family-like group known throughout Fiore for their destructive but loving nature. “I think it was one of the earliest mage’s guilds, formed to create a family for mages to practice in. Naturally, it got out of control quite a bit through, which led to where we are today. But our long history has left me with plenty of resources that can be used to support us today, which I am very thankful for.”

    Frankly, the founding story was quite simple. As far as Sorano knew, it had just been a group of mages who wanted to form a group that took on jobs and tasks, getting paid for practicing their skills. In a way, Fairy Tail had returned to that state, albeit with much less of the destruction that accompanied the infamous legal guild.

    “That’s great to hear, Miss Nessa. Mura is a wonderful mentor, I’m sure.” Unlike herself, her teammate was much better at interacting with guild members and putting them at ease. There was a reason why he had been put in charge of ensuring everyone was satisfied here – a lack of emotions made counselling rather difficult, and the shaman had ben the perfect person for the job.

    Nessa smiled as she listened to Sorano, continuing to take occasional her tea as the guild master talked, she was feeling a little more awake now. Not enough to go on a job or do any strenuous work, but at least enough to properly interact with another person. She nodded, it made sense that the purpose of the guild would be to bring people together, likeminded mages who wanted somewhere to belong. It was nice, that how she felt since joining, a comforting sense of belonging. It had been a few years since she felt that way, following the incident with Rex and all her friends disappearing from her life. She had been alone for a long time, confined to only her family and her teachers being the ones willing to talk to her. Although maybe that had been a good thing, she had focused on her training. Working hard with her Father and Aunt everyday, without the distraction of spending time with the girls. Eventually she had gotten good enough to even classify as a mage. Joined Fairy Tail, and now was here accomplishment all sorts of things. Maybe everything really does happen for a reason.

    Still the burning questions lingered, made only more so by the words that Sorano said. Maybe, she could pry just a little, if anyone would be able to help her organise those thoughts it would be her right. After all, who could you trust if not your guild master. Nessa looked down as her tea cup, it was slowly getting empty. She did a small sigh, before looking up at Sorano. "We're not legal anymore are we? Rather we're....independent." She said, fiddling with the handle on her cup as she spoke. "I think... I think I understand why... I mean. I've noticed some of the jobs we do aren't as... well you know." Her mind flashed back to that job with Markus, glazing over slightly as she remembered the sight of that man dying at his hand. She blinked it away before refocusing on Sorano.

    "I'm not saying I have issue with it, really," She added, hoping the guild master wouldn't get the wrong idea about her stance on the matter, "I may seem naïve and oblivious, and I know a lot of the time I am but I'm quickly learning that things aren't black and white, sometimes it's better to remain in the grey." She reached over her for pot of tea, pouring herself another cup as she waited for her response, a slight sense of nervousness falling over her. She hoped she wouldn't anger or displease the guild master by bringing it up, but quite frankly, Sorano was pretty hard to read.

    Nessa’s next question would come across hesitantly, as if she were afraid of asking. Once more, the slightly nervous shade returned to her aura, darkening slowly as her pale fingers fiddled with the cup in her hand. Knowing what to now prepare for, Sorano straightened her spine and blinked neutrally at the older woman before her. However, her point made would only leave the guild master tilting her head slightly in confusion. That was something interesting to bring up, as no intern member should have access to illegal jobs. Perhaps she was referring to something else? Well…she was new to the magic industry after all, huh. “Well Miss Nessa, you’d be surprised at how far the most legal of guilds will stray from the typical moral path if driven by certain motivations.”

    Fiore, after all, was not a perfect, clean country. The government’s actions left much to be desired, and the letter mage’s personal experiences had shown on more than one occasion that not all legal mages upheld the country’s laws. In fact, Fairy Tail truly was not quite so brutal as some of the legal guilds she’d encountered before. How ironic. With a gurgling sip, the letter mage finished the juice box, setting the now empty container back down on the table.

    It would appear that Nessa was learning of the nature of this world rather quickly – something that could be both a good or bad thing. It meant her mind was open, subject to change and new ideas. Impressionable. Watching the tea trickle slowly into the older woman’s cup, the guild master would glance up at her with the same cold eyes she always wore. “Is that so, hmm? Interesting of you to bring this up now.” Sorano clasped her hands together, pondering her next course of action. How would one go about introducing the guild’s interesting position?

    Gathering magic from around her, the letter mage sucked in a light breath, feeling the intoxicating tingle of ethernanos on her tongue. Speaking once more in a tone that somehow felt infinitely more persuasive, the letter mage painted an illusion about the tale with silvered words, magic tainting each and every syllable as she spoke. “See, Fairy Tail was a legal guild. But at one point, we became far from favorable in the eyes of the Council.” As she spoke, the image of a small, pale, white-haired girl with crimson eyes would seem to appear in the air, conjured up by the guild master’s words.

    “Lucie, you see, was a small, insignificant mage who became a Coming Storm. The mages of Fairy Tail then were quite influenced by the idea of a family, as I’m sure you’ve gathered, and naturally could never give her up no matter the Magic Council’s demands.” The scene changed to show a hall of worried, apprehensive mages, a younger Sorano standing among them with the same monotonous expression as they stared up at an imposing woman. “Kanix Laspor, the Sixth guild master led us into exile. All for a single problematic child. We departed to Tetsukazu, building ourselves a small, simple home among its famed forests and streams. It still stands there, our emergency guild hall of sorts.”

    Again, the illusion shifted to show the series of roughly built treehouses, devoid of life besides the lone figure of Sorano, placing a small pile of books down in a deserted clearing. “Fairy Tail became a dark guild, hated by all, and we learned much about the true nature of the Magic Council in those days. The Council, leading on a witch hunt because of a single child, who killed not even of her own will but of a possessive demon’s? We learned about struggle, something Fairy Tail hadn’t had to face in far too long, and the guild fell to rather depressing levels. It took a long time before Kanix left, leaving the guild to me, and even longer to bring us back to where we are now.”

    Images flashed by, of an increasingly deserted guild, until even the imposing woman of earlier faded away, leaving Sorano, Mura, and another – Takumi – standing quietly by themselves. “With this history, our members grew up. Changed their minds about the world, learned a little something, and we’ve all changed due to it. It’s your choice if you want to know about the new Fairy Tail, or if you’re more comfortable with the guild you’ve come to know. It’s all up to you.” With a gentle shrug, the guild master stood, tossing her juice box into the nearest disposal, giving time for the woman to think.

    Post by Nessa Cordelia Lux on 17th September 2018, 2:37 pm








    Nessa's words brought over a thoughtful reaction in Sorano, but then again, it seemed Sorano reacted to everything this way. She was much more the kind of individual to think more before she spoke, not rushing her words or allowing them to spill out of her uncontrollable. Not like Nessa, a chatty girl that struggled often to hold her tongue or word things right. Often saying things that were inappropriate or unstructured. She was never offensive or harsh with her words, but rather clumsy, much like the rest of her demeanour.

    Sorano's remark about the motivations of guilds, made Nessa think of the other mages she had met. Granted she hadn't met many outside of her own, there had been Liam from Crystal Swan.  He seemed perfectly kind and friendly, not too dissimilar to herself. Then there had been that incident with Basilisk Fang, she hadn't witness enough to understand what their motivations were but the way they had carried themselves, their treatment of Fairy Tail. It was a reflection on how different guilds all the guilds were bound to be, and in her eyes she assumed they were a world apart in motive. But still, it was worth trying to understand, because the more you understand about other guilds and their people. The better you could handle them in the future, she noted that she would definitely needed to learn more about all the different guilds in Fiore. So at least, she knew what to expect.

    Nessa listened as Sorano began to explain the truth about Fairy Tails past, her eyes falling over the visualization of the white haired girl named Lucie that Sorano described. Her ears hung on every word the guild master spoke, her eyes locked on the interchanging images in front of her. She gasped a little about hearing that Fairy Tail had once been dark. Her slow understanding of the truth behind the guild developing, she bit her lip. Listening on, she couldn't believe it. That Fairy Tail had been through all of that, how had she not known. Then a bitter thought came to mind,Because you were so self-involved at that point you weren't aware of anything. The thought was harsh but true, Nessa had been oblivious to the ongoing of the world for a long time now. She had started just a normal teenage girl, then she had lost her mum in a painful ordeal with a dark guild. Then just after she had began to feel normal again she met Rex, her first love. The one who had robbed her of so much time, and had caused her to eventually lose all her friends. She had been far too distracted in her own sorrows to pay attention to the outside world.


    "That must have been really tough on you guys." She said softly once Sorano had finished, she took a breath, "You know, before she had me. My mum was a good person, but she belonged to a dark guild. I never truly understood it but my Aunt tells me that in her mind. Even from a dark guild, she felt like she could help people, to save them. She was a great woman, the best I've ever known, but naïve to the worlds darkness. A lot like me I guess. I want to be like her, I want to help people and make a difference. But I don't want to be her, I want to live my life following my own path. I have to come to terms with the words darkness, so that I can move forward and find my place in this world." She felt like it was a lot to admit this to Sorano, but if her Guildmaster was going to trust her. She had to be honest with her, completely honest.

    "It's been a long time since I've felt like I've belonged anywhere, until recently that is. Fairy Tail is the place I want to be, the world I want to know. That means all of it, even the uncomfortable parts." She told the letter mage, a look of determination glinting in her eyes. It may been a big change, but she would manage. She wasn't about to stick her head in the sand and remain oblivious to the truth, because if she did that. How would she really be able to support her guild in all it's needs?

    STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK YOUR BONES, BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CHANCE AGAINST WORDS.


    The older mage’s eyes seemed to almost glass over as the illusions formed and changed before her, faint colors weaving in and out of the intricate images that were brought about by Sorano’s voice. Soft reactions would occasionally betray her emotions – although they were clear to the letter mage as well, her dark eyes constantly flickering over the shimmering fog of emotional energy that surrounded each living thing. Surprisingly, what floated to the surface of the colorful muddle would be the dark stain of regret and self-deprecation. Instead of shock and horror at the history of her guild as the letter mage had expected, why was Nessa feeling blame towards herself? Now it was the guild master who had questions, though she kept her thoughts to herself until the tale was told, gently whisking away the illusions, letting the remaining ethernanos gather in a corner of her mouth.

    “We got over it, like we do with anything, and all’s well that ends well.” Sorano clasped her hands neatly before her on the wooden table, now free of the finished juice box. Patiently, the letter mage let Nessa’s own story fill her ears, nodding of the tale of a dark mage mother who believed in fighting for people even from the darkest corners of magical society. Perhaps that explained the self-blame that had stirred within the woman’s aura earlier – wanting to change and become her own person? It was far too much for Sorano’s emotionally incapable mind to process, however, and as such the guild master shook it off. Perhaps she’d ask Mura to check up on Nessa, make sure everything was fine.

    “That’s a good goal to reach towards, I think, finding your own place in the world.” It really was. “It’s certainly not something easy to aim for, but I have confidence that you will be able to reach that goal someday, Miss Nessa.” It was strange, a fifteen year-old girl giving life advice to a senior in terms of age. But Nessa progressed quickly from what she had heard and observed. It was likely the day would soon come where the white-haired mage surpassed the guild master in terms of ability as well, wouldn’t it?

    But realizing the importance this moment must have for Nessa, Sorano kept her more irrelevant thoughts well under wraps, focusing on her guildmate’s words instead. “I’m pleased to hear our guild has been welcoming to you. It means we’re doing something right, for once.” The slight hint of humor would sound off in the girl’s monotonous voice, but hey – you gotta work with what you got. “Here, why don’t we take a look at this more uncomfortable side of the guild?”

    With a jerk of her head, the letter mage gestured towards the guild elevators before sliding from her seat, briefly tugging at her skirt and moving towards the plain glass doors. With a gentle press on a slim finger, the doors slid open to admit the mages, leaving plenty of room for them to stand. As the glass panels slid together once more, Sorano’s fingers danced over the bottom of the panel of buttons, causing several more to suddenly appear at the bottom. Pressing one of them easily, the elevator descended to the basement level.

    “Here, Miss Nessa, is our illegal business center.”
    While just as well-lit as the main lobby, the place was much quieter, no sign of life besides the fairies that conducted their business, bringing in illegal jobs and requests for members to take. Several imposing doors would be situated about the room as well, a glass display in the middle of the floor containing two swirling portals and a strange crystal statue set up in the opposite corner. “If you look over here, these are jobs that Fairy Tail offers that are not in line with the Magic Council’s laws. They are generally not taken by our members for a wide variety of members, but it is always another way to generate business and income for our guild.”

    The Starlight Maiden nodded at Sorano's remark about the guild getting over it and moving on, that they had. From what she could see the guild was in a much better place now, she would never have guessed that they had become a dark guild completely at some point. The guilds history and any effects it may have had on the guild had remained oblivious to her. If it hadn't have been for her mission with Markus, she may not have picked up on the guild discrepancies. Watching him kill those men and receiving no consequence, she understood that the human deaths had been a means to preventing their own deaths. But still, if she'd have had it her way, they would have settled for their arrest as opposed to such harsher means.

    She smiled at Sorano's response to her goal of being her own independently strong mage who is able to help all those around her. It was a sweet dream but one with a long and windy path. She would have to work hard to get there, but she now that she was on route, she felt no desire to deter. She would follow her dreams, and make her family proud. Overwriting the taboo of her mothers legacy, and end the judgement once and for all.

    Nessa stood along with Sorano, leaving her unfinished tea on the table, she followed the guild-master. Walking along the guild hall behind the younger girl quietly, heading towards the Guild's elevators. She stepped inside after her, turning to face the glass doors as the come to a close. She felt as though her insides were swelling with nerves, anxious to see the true darkness the guild held. It was a scary thought, but one she didn't regret now. She was ready to embrace her guild, and understand the truth she never knew existed. She just hoped her reaction wouldn't disappoint Sorano.

    The elevator dropped, taking them down through the guild, opening up to reveal a basement. Nessa looked around the illegal business centre, her eyes taking it all in. Her eyes glazed over the desk, much like the one on the first floor. Then to the crystallized statue in the corner of a figure, she stepped over to it. Taking a look, it was a person. Is this...an old guild master perhaps? She wondered. Before turning away, her eyes fell on the strange distortion across the room situated in a glass container. She recognised it, she had seen many of them now, it was a portal, or rather two portals. She wondered where they would lead to. The room wasn't nearly as ominous as she had anticipated, it was just quiet. Finally she turned back to Ivy, bowing her head in gratitude, "Thank you for showing me this, I believe I understand the nature of the guild a little better now." She said to the letter mage, now she could grasp how much of a key feature to the guild this was. She understood the necessity, the guild needed funds, and seeing as they had already been marked with the name of a dark guild. This was what remained of it's effect.

    The woman seemed to constantly brim with nervousness now, her aura flickering in slight spots of fear and excitement in equal measure, yet her steps seemed sure. Her eyes would dart about, peering at the crystallized statue of Heero, as well as the shimmering portals. As she slowly sated her curiosity and initial wonder, the mage turned to bow her head at the shorter figure of her guild master. With the expression of gratitude, Sorano turned and made her way to the desk, pulling out a roster of names as well as another guild stamp, quite similar to the one that had applied Nessa’s current guild mark.

    “You may have seen some around the guild sporting full guild marks, no?”
    The letter mage lifted her own sleeve to reveal the silver-lined guild mark on her shoulder, filled a rich, deep blue. “Those that are filled in give the member access to places such as this center, marking them as a full member of the guild. I am willing to give you these privileges as well, though naturally there are requirements.”

    Lifting a finger, the guild master sat down at one of the smaller tables scattered around the room, gesturing for Nessa to sit in the opposite seat. “Fairy Tail’s guild purpose is to provide a professional business environment for any type of mage, with any motives or moral preferences. As a result, we strive to keep the guild in a good light under the watch of the Magic Council. That means that naturally, our illegal business is to be discussed only with other full guild members.” Lifting her head, Sorano eyed the white-haired mage with a hard, cold gaze. “That means even your closest of friends. In this position, you may now also take on illegal jobs. However, your signature magic, appearance, and other identifying features must be completely disguised so as not to endanger our reputation. Do you understand? We will not hesitate to drop you behind, kick you under the bus, as they say, if you do so.”

    She slid forward the roster, names of the others in on the secret carefully arranged on the page. “These will be the people who you can discuss this with, if you so wish.”

    Nessa's violet eyes glided over to Sorano's guild mark, taking in the deep blue Fairy Tail insignia, outlined with silver. As Sorano continued, it dawned on Nessa that despite all her participation she had not even been a full member of the guild she so loved. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but one she understood the reasoning for. Not everyone could be trusted with the truth, after the Lucie incident, it was no wonder the guild was being cautious. Having successfully pulled themselves out of the status of a dark guild, they didn't need a loose tongue spouting the truth where the magic council could hear them.

    Nessa took the seat opposite Sorano as she had been indicated to. Remaining quiet as Sorano spoke further on the matter. It was the most serious she had seen her guild master for a while, not since the meeting with Basilisk Fang. It suddenly occurred to Nessa that the reason such a meeting with a dark guild had taken place was due to the darker side of Fairy Tail. However that hadn't seemed to progress anywhere well, still it explained the purpose of the meeting itself. At Sorano's stern comment about not talking to friends about the matters, the faces of Aven and Arcadia's came to mind. She couldn't tell them anything, this meant she would have to lie to them should the time call for it. It wasn't a pleasant thought, but still she wasn't about to break the faith Sorano had put in her by sharing this all with them. She was going to prove her worth and ensure that she did not ruin things the guild had strived so hard for.


    Nessa nodded along with the finer details about having to remained disguised should she take any illegal jobs on, and not being able to use her signature magic. That was going to be tough, her magic was easily recognisable, at least she had her Valkyries. Not many people even knew about them yet, perhaps she could work around it. It was only something that could be handled with experience. "I understand," She replied solemnly, she leaned forward in her seat. Taking the page handed to her and turning it for her to read. Her eyes skimmed over the names, feeling a slight sense of relief. At least she knew who she could discuss the matter with, should she ever feel the need to. She lowered the roster, looking back at up Sorano with completely seriousness. "I promise, I won't let you down Sorano." She told the guild master in earnest.

    A bitter sheen went over Nessa’s aura as she talked – she had not realized she was merely an intern sort of member. It disappeared quickly enough, however, and took a seat across from the younger girl quietly. Her emotions certainly weren’t the most pleasant, as Sorano spoke on about certain rules, but it appeared they were terms that she could accept as she replied affirmatively to the speech. Relief flickered over her aura as she read the roster – it appeared the names that appeared on the page were favorable to her. In response to Nessa’s earnest words, Sorano moved over to the desk, retrieving an ornate guild stamp. It was time to apply to her the full permissions of a Fairy Tail member.

    Waiting politely for Nessa to move aside any articles of clothing that could be in the way, she lowered the stamp down on top of the outline that was already there. As runic circles flickered and flashed over the surface of the magical stamp, the mark would be filled with violet, shimmering briefly before settling into her skin. “Well Nessa, welcome to Fairy Tail: The Official Version.” The awkward humorous jab would be accompanied by Sorano’s usual lack of expression, and she tucked the stamp away once more. “Feel free to explore the new floors of the guild that should appear in the elevator now, and use the portals in the room. You may want to take someone more experienced with you first, but you’ve plenty of time for that.” With that, the guild master patted Nessa’s hand in an awkward movement, and rose to leave the floor.
