- Songs Collide: Ice
Minimum 1 B Rank, or 2 C Ranks
Minimum 7,500 words, Defeat Boss
Many know the tales of the great bird of fire with a song that could tame dragons. Not many know that these same birds come in elemental variants, just like Dragons. Journey to the the planet Kosetsu in the Wakusei Portals and scour the snow covered land. When you come to what appears to be a shrine with a fist sized sphere colored ice blue and shining like a gem, you'll know you've arrived.
From under the snow a 15 yard long (tip to tail) bird will rise on the other side of the shrine, spreading its' 30 yard windspan to cast a shadow that shimmers brilliantly. Your battle begins here. The Phoenix is Ice Element, therefore is naturally weak to Fire attacks. It's abilities include, but are not limited to:
• Perform a breath attack of its' own element
• Absorb its' own element of magic through their feathers
• Use a wind attack that's partially its' own element
• Summon smaller elemental versions of itself
• Making it rain its' own element
• Become immune to magic completely regardless of rank for 1 post (once)
The Phoenix takes 25 hits of B Rank damage to take down. It's magic cannot be consumed by first, or second generation, or hybrid slayers but can be consumed by third generation slayers. When defeated, the bird won't actually die but rather bow to you before erupting into a cloud of snow. You may now approach the gem on the pedestal and take it. Upon touching the gem, you're given a vision of a pedestal with four orbs; Ice Blue, Crimson, Grey, and Black. You're also given a vision of the location of all four orbs, even though you already got one.
Ice Blue: A planet covered in snow.
Crimson: A world where the sky bleeds.
Grey: A place where magic reigns supreme.
Black: A land of oddities.
Normal B Rank EXP

It had been at least a few weeks since the strange and oddly eventful sleep over that had been hosted by Kaori and still Samira was having recurring nightmares over it. Each time gigantic and fluffy stuffed animals would be in the scenery, acting as the walls to a large maze. She would be chased through the whole thing by the more cutsie side of Kaori, who had every intention on capturing her in the form of a tackle hug and squeezing her to death. Each time she had the nightmare Samira as well as Kaori would always be wearing a different set of pajamas that would usually be worn by children rather than grown women. Lots of fluff and fuzzy additions were in the design as well as images of small and adorable animals sewed into them. If she escaped the pursuing Kaori and managed to reach the end of the maze she would find Ikuchi there and would find herself being taken away and put on display as some sort of trophy in a glass case. What made it worse is that the case was rather crowded as many other women were also a part of the collection. To make matters worse, the nightmare would always end with everything disappearing and darkening. Then, a giant version of Chaac would appear in the sky. He was always angry and each time her voice was called in a manner of an angry parent disciplining their child. Then a long stream of scolding would commence that she could not tune out. She would always wake up from the nightmare as Kali instantly appeared and chopped off her head. Needless to say, Samira was not getting much sleep these days.
Samira sat at her desk in her room, looking grumpy and tired with dark circles under her eyes from sleep deprivation. She let out a yawn before faceplanting into a book she had opened and was attempting to read a moment before. It was still early in the morning, a time when she normally went out for breakfast. Why was she not doing so that day? Because she had given up. Everytime she went out Chaac had made it his mission to use his own power to enter the mortal realm and follow her like some sort of bodyguard. It would of been something she would not of minded before but he had grown to be so far beyond the definition of over protective that they may as well have created a new word just for him and slapped it into the dictionary. Every man she passed by on the streets got threatened in one form or another, and one time a small child that had asked her to play catch was run off by the large and intimidating spirit. She was even still trying to make up for the time the mailman had accidentally touched her hand when handing her a letter. The act sent the spirit into a rage, thinking it had been a love letter and the touch was a form of perversion. The mailman was sent flying and to that very day he skipped her address or ran away whenever he saw her. It also didn't help that whenever he was out it always rained. Having an umbrella on hand had now become a habit.
"Samira!" The voice of Serqet reached her ears but the woman made no effort to move, not even as the scorpion spirit walked over and proceeded to poke her several times. All she wanted to do was sleep. "Hey. Hey! Summoner? Key Owner? Celestial Wizard?" Serqet frowned and placed her hands on her hips. Then with a mischievous grin she leaned over, moved the green locks away from Samira's ear and whispered, "do you need a certain kind of kiss? I know who to-" The woman quickly sat up with an embarrassed squeak. "I am up!"
"Oh, darn. I really wanted to see what happened." Serqet pouted while raising from her leaning position so that she was once again standing fully. "Oh well, guess what?!" Serqet clasped her hands together before her and waited in anticipation for the long line of guesses to come. She would be further disappointed as Samira merely rose from her desk and with another yawn put the book she had away on a nearby shelf while asking the question of "what?", which was almost completely drowned in the yawn.
"You're no fun. But I forgive you and tell you anyway. Chaac won't be stalking you today. He is busy at some meeting with Awilix. He'll be gone the whoooollllee day. I think." Serqet grinned, expecting Samira to jump for joy at having a normal day. Unfortunately she was too tired to care about that part and her mind focused more on the part of the meeting. Awilix had been another one of her newer spirits, sharing the same country of origin as Chaac. When her power rose she had unlocked three new keys of power but with them came spirits belonging to lesser keys that had been hesitant to become active until she reached a certain point. While Chaac was the leader of her lesser spirits, Kali and Susano were also leaders of the ones that matched their rank of power. "Are Susano and Kali still available?"
"Susano is busy arguing with Bacchus on whether celestial wine or saké is better. Last I checked in they were having a drinking contest to see which one could handle the most alcohol."
Samira let off a sigh. In that case he would be useless. No one could ever out drink Bacchus, although they could try and fail horribly. And why were they drinking so early in the damn morning? Was time really different in their world or did it just not matter to spirits? "And Kali?" After the whole sleep over ordeal Kali was had very harsh words for Samira and had been distant ever since. She never even showed when summoned. Serqet clenched her teeth together and drew a breath, cringing at the question. She was still pissed then. Well it was what it was. Some time was just needed for the spirit to cool off.
Samira turned back to the bookshelf and started to run her finger along the bind of each book until she found one of interest and pulled it out. "So Chaac will be gone a whole day, correct?" A smile appeared on her pale face as she decided to take advantage of the opportunity and be a little...disobedient. She was part of a monster hunting guild and what better way to get experience in that department than to do some actual hunting? Legends were something she took great interest in and the tales of phoenixes were well known to her. What was more obscure were the stories of the other elemental variants. It was hard to have any solid proof of their existence due to the theory that they were all split up and made their homes on different planets. It was unlikely she would be able to take a trip to all the planets in one single day but she could search around a small area of one and gather some notes. The book was tossed into a knapsack along with her weapons, having learned before that walking out without them was generally a bad idea no matter if she was just doing a social visit or not. Some other odds and ends were also tossed in and soon she was ready. She remembered the planet name Kosetsu, a place full of nothing but snow. It was the most likely place for the phoenix of ice. Samira reached for the door but stopped herself at realizing getting to the Wakusei Portals was likely going to take the whole day by itself. "I did not think that part through."
'You have ally with means of travel, ya?' A newer spirit by the name of Skadi asked within Samira's mind. The voice was that of a woman, but it was deep and carried with it a type of accent. 'Stop being a slápr and ask her.'
"Stop being a what?"
A book materialized in Serqet's hands and she began to search for the definition of the word. "I think she just called you a good for nothing lazy person."
'I wish to see winter planet.'
Samira made a sort of an annoyed sound in her throat but made no comment. The spirits had done well to have Skadi use terms she could understand but when it came to the insults she went back to her personal preference. The suggestion was a good idea though. Kaori did have a ship and using it to get to the portals was reasonable. There was just...well several things that made her hesitate. With the fears of their last meeting aside, there was the fact she may of been busy or was using it herself. "I'll go ask!" Samira made an attempt to stop the spirit as she threw the door open and ran out, but it was too late. Serqet had begun her short journey to the docks with Samira having no choice but to slowly tail after her.
The spirit of venom reached the docks at a high speed and made for the Arc of Destiny. Or should she have gone to the White Mermaid? Eh, details. Her invisibility cover took over as she snuck aboard the ship and made her way through the halls, looking for any signs of familiar faces. Along the way she made it a point to switch things around and even play around with some of the crew she passed by with simple trickery. Before long she would get tired of her search and, with her invisible cloak still activated, announced her presence. "Heeelllloooo? I have come to haunt this place! Take me to your leader!" A few seconds of pause before adding some fake and childish ghostly sounds. Hey, it was her opinion that spirits should actually act like simple spirits for once.
