    Desirée Blooms


    Living on the ship of Crystalli was just as peaceful as it was useful. It was a beautiful thing that Desirée had the chance to establish her guild at such a young age, the age of 18, and have it be successful. Crystal Swan was one of the best things that ever happened to the demon slayer, it was something that was absolutely breathtaking to witness succeed. Her dreams were something that blossomed into that called reality, and it was something that she never saw being able to succeed. However, with this, it proved to her that the things you work hard on can prevail easily. Her plans for the guild were something that sat in a notebook for years upon years on end, so much so that they were coated in dust before they were revisited. After all, Desirée did not look upon them much as they brought her sadness and nostalgia of the girl of angels, the one that helped her conceptualize and build Crystal Swan's blueprints. Just thinking of her made her heart flutter, just as the wings of her celestial angels did in the skies above; it was truly magnificent. Sometimes she would fly with Lele upon the backs of her strongest angels, watching the trees flutter beneath; it was powerful as well as beautiful, it almost brought her back to the day she saved her life and brought her to Summoner's Stone. She could feel the pain of the scars on her back slowly get glossed over just thinking of her as she did when she was younger; when she was saved. Now, Desirée had finally fulfilled the wishes of Lele Stone, and knew that she would most definitely be proud.

    "Now, all I must do is wait." she thought to herself as she sat upon the crystal piano inside the guild hall, gently playing it as she watched the silver magical circle twirl upon the ceiling. Desirée had sung the Chrysalis Song, the song that allowed her to summon any Crystal that lived in Chrysalis that she desired. It was something she was only taught weeks ago, something that allowed her to experience that of what she lost in the starfall; her summoning magic. The magical circle pulsed slowly as she played a beautiful and classic song on the crystal piano, slowly watching the koi fish and flowers float under the keys as her fingers quickly shifted. As she witnessed from the few other times she attempted to summon a Crystal by the method of song, it was apparent that this newer method took somewhat longer than it did summoning with a golden hoop. It was most likely because the hoop was designed for combat, unlike the song of Chrysalis kind. It was a beautiful song that only previous and present Queens knew, and as Desirée was the current reigning, she now had access. It was saddening that the starfall ruined her ability to summon, but it replaced it with a much powerful magic of multiple dimensions. It blessed her with light, which was always present around her body. Her radiance was extremely bright, almost as bright as the silver magical circle looked as it erupted into a ball of multi-colored light. The song had worked, which was something that Desirée did not think would occur due to the Crystal she was summoning. It was someone who was not seen much in the public eye in Chrysalis, but someone that was greatly recognized and known.


    As the orb shattered into that of a Crystal, Desirée halted her fingers from hitting the keys of her piano and looked towards the woman which was called upon. "Platinum." Desirée and the Crystal said in unison, as their eyes met and swirled the exact same color. Prism eyes, a sign that they were both Queens of Chrysalis at one point. The woman was sitting upon the lid of the crystal piano while Desirée stood from her location, sliding the large bag that sat beside her on the bench over her shoulder and placing the white and blue sun-hat upon the top of her head. "I apologize for the lack of haste that I expressed after I was called upon. However, I was still in the middle of getting dressed for this occasion, and I did not want to look unacceptable for where we are going. I also appreciate that you look well dressed now as well, especially with that pop of pink provided on your white and blue bag by that flower. I remember seeing images of you wearing that in your hair while it was blue, you know. I think it is beautiful that you still have it, it makes me very happy that you can stick onto the little things." Platinum told Desirée as she hopped off the lid of the piano and landed on a small stone on the pool of water, a similar stone that Desirée was now standing on. "That is perfectly fine, Platinum. I am just as ready as you are, I just got ready a bit early." Desirée told her with a smile as she tipped her hat forward, symbolizing that she was ready to embark.

    Out of her bag came Kiwi and Strawberry, holding hands as Kiwi held a spoon that looked to have a small remnant of cookie dough stuck to its side. "Desi! That cookie dough was very yummy! When are we going?" Kiwi asked Desirée as he licked the excess dough off the spoon. "We are just about to leave, you guys! Now, I know both of you are not well rested due to the amount of playing you two were doing last night, so I want you to go sleep in the bag. You can use the soft change of clothes I have in there as blankets." she told them as Kiwi's eyes began to sparkle. "Soft blankets! Yes, yes, yes! Strawberry, come with me!" he exclaimed as Strawberry sighed, passing through the top of the bag in order to sleep. After all, it was about four in the morning, therefore the majority of the guild and people staying upon Chrysalis were asleep or out on jobs. Only some members stood in the central guild hall at this time, the ones that were either eating early breakfast, preparing to leave in order to go on missions, or to wave the Guild Master off as she was to leave for a small yet long amount of time. She only planned a week or two at most, but she had no idea how long she would be in Terasu training with the dragon that produced one of the two lacrimas that resonates within her body. It was why she was leaving one of her pets behind at the guild, Pitaya, as she was the most well behaved beings under the rule of Desirée. As she peered across the large room to the other side, she could see Pitaya sitting on the edge of a pool in her human form, a red cloak covering her entire body as she scrolled through an iLac. It was a spare that Desirée received weeks before when she was to embark on her trip, a spare that she bought specifically for her and Pitaya to speak back and forth from in order to give each other updates, especially if the guild were to get out of hand. It was unlikely that it would but anything was able to happen in the span of a week, which is why Desirée felt it would be better to be safe rather than sorry.

    Hopping from stone to stone with her white and blue boots, she began to make her way to the doors of the guild hall in order to finally embark on what she woke up so early to do; pass through a Wakusei portal. After she had got away from the pool and onto the lower ground of the hall, Desirée walked toward Pitaya to give her a pet on the forehead before leaving. "If anything happens that I would want to or need to know, message or call me. Understand?" the Guild master told Pitaya as she followed with a nod, her bangs bobbing with the motion of her head followed with a smile. "Thank you. I will see you soon, Pitaya!" Desirée told the mire wolf as she began to walk out the guild, her hair fluttering due to the wind hitting as the doors opened. Platinum followed the slayer and shut the doors behind her, walking directly east from the hall and through the silent streets of Crystalli. Some of the shops were setting up at this time, but not that many; some lights upon the skyscrapers were still slightly illuminated from the windows, others were not. The fresh scent of flowers filled the air from the bushes and trees sprouting on the sides of the streets, it was truly magnificent that a technological feat like this was able to be established in only a week. As the ship flew through the sky birds flew behind it, it was constantly moving across the world. Today was special however, and the schedules of Platinum and Queen Diamond were planned just around the route in which Crystalli was taking on this day; at 4:23 AM, the ship was to pass directly above the Wakusei Portals. It was something the ship did not typically pass by, which was why they decided that now would be the time to embark to Terasu in order to train with Sirius. It was something that Queens did not typically get to accomplish, Desirée being the second after Platinum, the first Queen of Chrysalis. It was to be an honor in order to try and locate Sirius in order to train, and they wished he was to be willing to do such a thing. After all, it had been an extremely long time since a Crystal even grazed the land of Terasu, Platinum was not even sure that he would recognize her despite her appearance not changing in the slightest.

    As they walked toward the edge of the ship and looked over, it had appeared that they were approaching the portals rather quickly. "Well Platinum, have you ever free-dived before? The ship is not scheduled to stop and land for the portals, therefore that is the only option." Desirée told the older Queen as her eyes widened. "...Are you crazy? How are we going to do that without shattering?" Platinum asked the slayer as she locked her hand with hers, reaching the edge of the rail before climbing over and standing on the edge. "I can fly, remember?" Desirée said as she hopped off the edge, freely falling through the sky just as she did when she appeared in Chrysalis before being crowned Queen. Locking another hand with Platinum's as they faced each-other face to face, Platinum looked at her worryingly as they flew toward the surface of one of the portals at an extremely fast rate. "Well, did you forget!? Why aren't we slowly descending?!" the first Queen exclaimed as she looked downward, the ground inching closer and closer to their bodies. Desirée smiled as they fell, her eyes glancing toward one of the higher-up portals sitting upon a small island and glistening with light. Freeing one of her hands, Desirée shot a large beam of light out one and caused it to stick onto said island, resulting in them swinging through the wind at a rapid speed toward one of the higher islands because of momentum. As they flung into the air quickly, Platinum screamed as she held onto the guild master's chest tightly, not realizing that the portal they landed right in-front of was actually the portal they were due to go into.

    "For... for the love of the Great Chrysalis Dragons... please let us land." Platinum said as she shook, not even realizing that they had stopped flying through the air and stood on secure ground. "Open your eyes, Platinum!" Desirée exclaimed as the older Queen gasped, leaning down and shaking her head in embarrassment. "Well, we are here.." she told the slayer as Desirée secured her bag on her shoulder, standing in-front of the portal that shone a beautiful blue with golden fragments of light shining across. The pink flower upon her bag produced a scent of lilies as they stood there and peered into the endless void that the glaze appeared as, a flower that was enchanted by Lele in order to never die. It was one of two that she received from her, but she typically left the one sitting on her dresser in her current residence. The flower was not nearly as pink as the color of Platinum's hair and heart on her cheek, it was much brighter. "Let's." Desirée told the other Queen followed with a nod back, symbolizing that she was also ready to dimension travel. With a gentle walk into the glaze, a bright flash of light developed their bodies and shone gold in their minds, reminiscent of the stars that shone upon the night sky.

    After a few brief moments, they stood where they stood seconds before but in a different dimension, one that appeared to stretch as far as the sky could see with small yet beautiful golden stars across its dark sky. With the conversation they had days before about the realm known as Terasu, it was known to always be at this state of darkness. It was extremely beautiful, it made Desirée look in awe just peering onto those beautiful stars. Her body radiated large amounts of light at this current moment, which appeared more vibrant as usual due to said darkness. "Queen Diamond, look over there. Do you see that? We must go there." Platinum pointed across the horizon to an extremely bright star, the brightest looking star to be on this planet. "It is where I found Sirius the last time I was here, thousands upon thousands upon thousands of years ago. I believe he is still there." Platinum told the guild master as she nodded, tightening the strength of her hat as it sat on her head. She looked at the brightest star and felt above where the lacrima sat inside of her body. 'Could that really be where the lacrima that was passed down from Queen to Queen have come from? The brightest star, Sirius?' Desirée thought to herself as she watched it twinkle in the distance, holding onto her bag as she saw the pink and green light being produced by a small slit in the top. "Very well." Desirée told Platinum as she grabbed her hand and blasted into the skies, flying nearly twenty meters off the ground below. Secured in her hands was the older Queen, and secured in the older Queen's hands was the bag that carried Kiwi and Strawberry along with the rest of her possessions she brought with her. As the dust of auroran lights and rainbows blasted around her body as she shot across the sky, the flower upon her bag twinkled along with the stars in the sky. As she flew, Desirée did not keep her eyes off the star that twinkled in the distance. She was determined to get there, she was determined to grow stronger.

    Post by Madame Astrid on 13th February 2018, 1:41 am

    It did not rain often on Terasu. It may be a strange thing to think about. How did a plant flush so full of vibrant plants and unique creatures stay in such a state when a necessary resource like water was rare? Well, sunlight was always said to be a necessary resource for plants and animals alike too, but you certainly didn't see a lot of that around this planet. In fact, there was never sun. Ever. The entire world was covered in a constant and ever lasting blanket of night. Mornings, afternoons, and evenings. The sun, nor moon ever rose, for the planet had neither. Instead, the planet had stars. Tons of them. With no ultra violet rays or intense artificial light that places like Earthland had Terasu's sky was allowed to do what many planet's skies had no capability of doing. Looking absolutely stunning. The sky here was mostly always clear, so clouds weren't even a problem. The perpetual cover of the stars was the planet's main attraction point. Which is probably why it was a hot spot for dates and family gatherings. Young couples and families would often come here all the time to lay under the ocean of stars and have fun. Luckily for Sirius and the other wildlife around here, there were not many people who came into the wildness itself. Most people stayed in the various clearings, where it was safe and heavily explored by those before them. Rarely did anyone stray too far into the woods, apart from the cases of dares or even just the insane or deranged. This planet, while being popular as an tourist attraction, was actually mostly unexplored. You know, wildlife protection agencies and all. Always wanting to preserve things. Which has led to the planet being for the most part untouched by human society. Which may be for good reason. Not many people would probably want to stay too long in a place that was always dark, no matter how beautiful the stars were. Not to even mention some of the weird nocturnal creatures that roamed these lands, some more terrifying and twisted than the ones back home. But as long as the humans kept their distances, the wildlife also kept their's. It was a mutual understanding for the most part, a silence contract only broken by the foolish and punished by the most vicious.
    Where did Sirius stand on all this? Well, honestly, he couldn't care. The elder white dragon was just happy it was raining for once. The earth was getting a little dry these days, so it was about time they were able to quench the land. Mother nature always had a way of knowing when to do things. Just when you think shes forgotten to do something, she surprises you. She was a tough old bird. Well, not actually bird. Mother nature was actually a rabbit. A crazy old rabbit, to be exact. He would know, he met her once before. But that was beside the point. She was doing her job, and that's all he could ask for.
    The rain allowed him to sleep a bit more peacefully. It wasn't something a lot of people could say. In fact a lot of people hated rain. But the dragon found the sound of it rather calming. Yes, maybe getting stuck in it and drenched from head to claw was a little bit of a downer. But from inside a nice toasty cave? The raindrops hitting the rock and echoing inside of his cave was like a rhythmic lullaby to the slumbering beast of legend. When you got to be his age, the little things always managed to count the most. And soothing times like these, they were one of them. The smell of wet moss, the warm air combining with the cool moisture to create this steamy and humid effect, the dripping of water traveling down the cracks in ceiling and plopping into tiny pools of water. Everything seemed to be in alignment for the perfect snooze. And for a tried old dragon? Well, there weren't many things better than a good nap.
    The great beast fell asleep to the sound of pouring rain, his head only protruding slightly outside the entrance of the cave so he could breath in fresh air but not enough so the down pour would touch his scales. The rest of his body, was curled up deeper within the cave in an attempt to keep himself warm. Though his wings were arched slightly, just so he could circumvent the air around him to not get too sticky with the humidity. He parted his jaws slightly to sneak in one final breath deep into his chest, letting the grassy smell reside deep within his nostrils before he closed his golden optics and breathed it out softly, relaxing his body before it was lulled into a deep sleep.

    ...

    ...

    ...

    "... Sirius?"
    To what seemed like a few seconds to the dragon, in actuality, had been a few hours. The light weather that had been at one point nothing but a lullaby was now like that of an entire orchestra preparing for the climax of their piece. Harsh winds blew, whizzing past the entrance of the cave, resembling closely like a constant scream of terror. The rain was now just noise. It no longer held a rhythm to it, not in the slightest. Instead now it all came down crashing at once in a blur of noise. No pattern, just discord. Pure chaos. It was really quite painful to listen to. It was as if Mother Nature herself was throwing a fit. Just what was that crazed hare up to? When he was thinking they needed a good rainstorm, he had not meant to this extent.
    Sirius reveled his optics slowly, blinking a few times against the dim brightness from his scales to once again get used to any kind of light. But it was only a few mere seconds he pondered about the goddess in this dazed state, before the smell of blood hit his nostrils. The metallic and sickly scent hit the back of his throat. It caught him off guard, though being used to it, did not gain any other reaction from him. It wasn't the scent that caught him off guard. No. It was an all too familiar scent for it to do that. Rather, it was the fact the scent was so close to his home that made the dragon question everything... That and... It was not fresh blood. It smelled like dried blood, mixed with infection. Something close to the smell of death, but not quite there yet.
    His gaze rolled over to the area in front of him, spotting a bloodied figure standing in the rain in front of him. Most likely the source of this smell.
    It took a moment to sink in, mostly due to just waking up and with how the harsh rain obscured his vision. But it was a figure he had grown so used to over the year, it would be almost impossible for him to mistake it for anything else.
    It was the person who had awoken him. His student. The granddaughter of Vivian. Astrid.
    Yellow oculars stared at the girl, who was currently in a horrid state. Her hair, was matted and drenched, sticking to her sickly white face. Her crimson eyes wielded up with tears, and were bloodshot. Well, at least one of her eyes were. The right one seemed to be missing an eye altogether, only leaving a large, bloodied crevice in its place. If one were to guess, it's probably where the rotting smell was coming from, seeing as how the muscle inside was pale and the blood was dry. The only wet blood was not fresh, but was currently streaking down her cheek under the hole, obviously due to the heavy downfall of rain loosening it up. The rest of her body wasn't as bad, but wasn't as good either. She looked thinner than she had been, and her clothes were worn and tattered, dust and dirt caked onto the fabric.
    She stood in a stance as if she could collapse at any moment, hunched over slightly, holding one arm with the other. If he didn't know any better, he would say she was the actual walking dead.
    Sirius' pupils dilated in shock.

    "Astrid? W... What happened, child?" He asked, completely shaking off whatever drowsiness was left in his system. The last time he had seen Astrid she was leaving from a short training session, looking a little worn down, but absolutely nowhere close to this. She looked practically death, as if lady death could take away her soul with a single breath.
    The dragon's question was not answered. Instead, Astrid continued to gaze at him with wide crimson eyes and stepped forward one tiny step towards him, and after a moment another one. Even her steps seemed to take so much out of her, as if she had to use all of her energy to push herself forward. She looked so fragile, so breakable, like if he touched her she would just disintegrate into dust. Was this even the Astrid he knew? Was he sure she hadn't been replaced with a glass replica?
    After a few moments of forcing herself forward she was inside the cave. She stopped when she was just close enough to him before collapsing onto her knees, pushing her face against his scales. He flinched physically upon her touch, feeling how cold she felt. He recalled when they had first met, and she held that cursed Glacier God Slayer lacrima inside her heart. She felt just as cold back then. But, compared to that coldness, this one felt even harsher.
    A few moments of silence between the two was created, each passing second building up tension before it was completely shattered a few seconds later by her shuttering. Astrid breathed heavily, her chest convulsing roughly with every breath she took and exhaled. If one was familiar with how an asthma attack looked, this may look similar to one such thing. She breathed in, but breathed out too quickly for her chest to really catch up.
    And then, the sobbing happened. Sirius could feel the tears dripping down his white scales. He knew these were not the cold drops of rain water from her clothes or silver locks. No. These were warm compered to everything else. There might be some blood on there too, seeing as how her other eye could not produce tears as well as the other now, but Sirius did not move. He was still somewhat in shock over everything, and right now, the slayer looked as though she had been holding this back for quite some time. He knew his student tried so hard to hold back her tears. She found it embarrassing to cry in front of others, so she tried not to. So to actually see her cry this badly? Something had gone terribly, terribly wrong.
    She cried, and cried, her sobbing muffled somewhat by her face digging into his scales. Whatever strength she had left, was focused purely on wrapping her arms as best she could around his large cheek. Though because he was so large, it did not wrap around at all. If anything, she was clinging to him. Tightly... So... So tightly, like if she left go she would die.
    "They're... T.... They're... They're...!" The elf tripped over her own words. She could not get her throat to cooperate with her. Her sobbing was too great, and interrupted her words. Each time she tried, she would end up choking on them and cry even harder.

    "Slow down, take it calmly. What happened? Who did this to you?" Sirius would ask again, his long tail curling around her shoulders in comfort.

    "They're... They're... I... It's all gone... They're all gone!"

    "What is gone, child?"

    "Everything!"

    It then clicked within Sirius' mind.
    Mother Nature was not raging.
    She was grieving.


    ...

    ...

    ...

    It has been a few months since Astrid came back to Terasu covered in blood and missing an eye. It took a while for the dragon to get it out of her, but he's pretty sure he has a clear picture. At least, a clearer picture. Death, destruction, and loss. So much had happened to the girl, in such little time. It was no wonder she was such a wreak. Losing her grandfather, losing her entire guild, being kidnapped, losing an eye, feeling weak, feeling responsible. She had such a heavy burden on her shoulders, and within a single minute her whole life came crashing down upon her. So much time spent on the guild, so much money invested, so many lives wasted. It was not something he could imagine enduring for as long as she has. And now that it was gone, she feels as thought she has nothing left to her. To Astrid her life was lost, along with the murky wreckage of the guild.
    He was the only person she felt like would not judge her, or blame her for the incident. She also felt, he was her only option left. Her only option to get stronger, stronger so this would never happen again.
    Or maybe, she was just using that as an excuse so she wouldn't have to face the reality of her actions...

    The dragon sighed, taking in a deep and refreshing breath of the cool night air. All he could offer her for now, was a place to stay. She felt as though she needed this, and he would not stop her. Perhaps, being up here for a while would help her. But three months had passed, and she didn't seem to want to go back. Every time he would ask if she had any intentions of going back down to Fiore, she would tactfully dodge the question. It wasn't what he wanted. He wanted to help her... But babying her? There was a point where he was just helping her hide from the world. Which, was just never good.
    The elder dragon flexed his claws outward and peeked his head out from the cave, peering up at the sparkling stars above.
    ... What would Minako do in his position?

    Desirée Blooms


    The feeling of the soft grass and delicate flowers lining Desirée's body made her feel relaxed, something her body needed after flying through the air for so long. Before landing for a break, Desirée flew with the party she was bringing on this expedition for twelve hours straight, not keeping an eye off of the bright star that sat upon the horizon. Her body was tired after flying for that long, as one would be for basically running nonstop for the same amount of time; it was physically exhausting, but she pushed through for a very large amount of time. Now she could feel the ground once again, the flowers hydrated with dew upon the darkened field in which they rested upon. It was a large clearing and island that lie surrounded in clear waters, but was completely flat and covered in pink tulips. They were extremely vibrant despite the darkness that was cast upon them from the sky, they looked to be the most vibrant tulips Desirée had ever seen. The light that shone from the body of the guild master was most likely the first light the flowers ever saw besides the stars that reigned above, but they still grew perfectly. They had adjusted to the terrain that surrounded them, which was how they grew in the first place and maintained their beauty. Sometimes the world was filled with things that made sense and some that did not, just like how it was filled with beauty. Flowers were just like that, which was one of the reasons Desirée and Lele chose the ponds of the guild hall to be filled with white lilies. They were beautiful and intricate, and were definitely a constant reminder that the world produced beautiful things.

    "We should be able to get there in one to two hours if we fly fast enough. The star is much closer to us than it was before." Platinum told Desirée as she looked toward the star, sitting upon the field of flowers right next to the slayer. While the older Queen kept looking at the star Desirée was stretched out upon the flowers, curled up slightly in a blanket that was stuffed toward the bottom of her bag. The blanket was that of a quilt, one side being entirely a blue-black color while the other was in a patchwork-style pattern of white and red. Over the top of her was the blanket while on the bottom she was laying on the cold flowers themselves, cooling her body as it prepared to finish the expedition. She tried to fly faster than she ever did before and it did apparently work, but it also took a toll on her body- Desirée was very tired. The short white and light blue sundress that she wore felt extremely soft on her body as it was made of silk and fine cotton, it made her feel relaxed, but tired. When they first landed she had ate a blueberry muffin that she packed in advance, that of which she picked up from her local bakery the night before she had left. She also brought a few other dishes of food, as she did not know what she would eat there, but she did not know how long they would last. Things like macaroni and cheese, a bag of chicken sandwiches- she hoped they would last as long as she was going to be here in Terasu, but she was entirely aware of how long that would be. It would all come down to what Sirius asked her to do, if he were to even accept training with her or even be there in the first place. She thought about this as she slowly dozed off, the warm quilt feeling as if it were sheltering her body from everything that could ever wish to harm her. As Desirée began to sleep, Kiwi and Strawberry began to run throughout the flower-field while carrying larger tulips and their stems that spanned nearly double the size of their body. "No! Please... please don't smack me with it!" Strawberry ran away from Kiwi as he chased her with a large tulip, holding what appeared to be a large bouquet of pink flowers that she had picked from the edges of the island. "I'm going to get you!" Kiwi exclaimed as they ran around where Platinum was sitting and where Desirée was sleeping, causing Platinum to sigh as she watched.

    As Desirée slept she dreamed of dragons, fleets upon fleets of them flying throughout the sky. Large and small dragons, white and pink dragons, sharp and dull scales. They were all beautiful to her, she had seen artist renditions of them but never one in person- besides those that worshiped her, but they weren't exactly full on dragons. Before long she was riding upon the back of a pink dragon, the hard yet secure scales providing a saddle-like seat for her to ride upon. The wings of this being were huge, met with white splashes of color along with bright pinks and sakura ribbons. As they flew through the sky she felt like she was in a state of pure bliss, holding onto the dragon as more followed in-front and behind. Upon the backs of each dragon that flew in-front of her looked to be figures of her, each one representing a different year in her life. All different sizes yet all looking extremely similar, it was a fleet of blue haired Desirées flying upon the backs of multi-colored dragons. However, there looked to be a different dragon flying toward the front and leading the brigade. An angelic dragon with angel wings instead of dragon wings and a halo around its head, it looked to have an angelic being standing upon its back. "Lele.." Desirée thought to herself in her dream, standing upon the back of her dragon as they faced each-other. The face of the angelic summoner looked to be expressionless, staring directly into Desirée's eyes as the tears began to flow. The dragon that flew beneath her disintegrated into light and left Desirée standing there in the sky for a brief moment before releasing her into the wind, free falling through the clouds as the brigade of dragons advanced without her. "No... Lele... Lele!" Desirée screamed, falling through the clouds and toward the sea beneath them at a quick rate. She was falling head first, and could not stop herself as she fell. Her body was about to slam against the water and shatter, as one would when hitting concrete. Inches before her head met the surface of the water, the sea turned into doves and flew into the sky; her eyes opened.

    "Had a good rest? You were drooling, and were asleep for approximately eleven hours and twenty-six minutes. Six-hundred and eighty-six minutes, to be exact. While you were sleeping Strawberry made you this, go on." Platinum told Desirée and Strawberry after she had shot upward from her slumber in fear, realizing it was just a dream, while Strawberry floating over to the slayer's face holding a large bouquet of pink flowers secured together with a string of delicately ripped and tied petals. "I... I- I thought these flowers were super pretty! And um... I- I wanted to make you a bouquet!" Strawberry exclaimed as tears began to roll down her face, quickly placing the bouquet of flowers on a part of Desirée's blanket before running off into the flowers that surrounded the area. "Thank you so much!" the guild master tried to tell the bio-luminescent organism before she began to run, although she knew it would have been no use. Strawberry was always like this, and it pained Desirée to watch. She wanted to fulfill Nova's presence in her heart, but it was so difficult to do so. "Well, I guess I am ready to begin flying again. You two can fly aside me while I hold Platinum, or stay in the bag. It is your choice." she told the BLOs as she began to fold the blanket she was sleeping with, slipping it into the bag along with a plush version of a pale pink teddy bear. It was a byproduct of the necklace she was wearing then, which allowed her to create endless stuffed animals and ribbons. Zipping up the bag and handing it to Platinum, Desirée locked her hands around the older Queen's waist and shot back into the sky, with Strawberry and Kiwi following directly on each side of her. Emitting the same rainbow-based aura as before, she flew rather quickly as she was ready to get to her destination. The stars overhead not changing as they flew, Desirée's eyes met the brightest star once again, functioning as a guide for where she was to go.

    Nearly three hours of flight later, Desirée along with the rest of the party finally arrived at what appeared to be the destination. It was very dark there, even with the brightest star shining directly above. Standing right on the outskirts of a large mountain range, Desirée's presence began to shine greatly and illuminate the area in which she was standing in by a great amount. Floating beside her were two orbs of pink and green light, while on the other side was a pink haired girl that had been here once before. "I'm still not entirely sure if he is still here, let alone if he will recognize me after so many years have passed. However, I hope he is here more than I hope anything else. Your training with him is much more important than recognition." Platinum told Desirée softly as she faced downward, her head meeting the formations of the mountain below her feet in which they stood upon. Desirée was definitely not as tired as she was before, if anything she was energized. Her heart was beating fast, almost as much as the first time she performed on-stage. She was as nervous as she was excited, the butterflies flowing throughout her stomach like the koi fish back at Crystal Swan throughout the white lilies that coated the clear, blue ponds. Desirée was unaware as to what would come out of coming here, she was unaware if Sirius was even here in the first place. Taking a deep breath as she stepped a few feet forward from the rest of her peers that had accompanied her here, she set her bag at the feet of Platinum as her mind began to reflect upon the lights of the Aurora.

    "I was told to follow the brightest star in order to get here, and so I did." she spoke quietly, her words slightly bouncing off the formation of the mountain that stretched upwards as her verbiage spoke downwards. "I am here to see the dragon known as Sirius." she said a bit louder, her voice twirling through the wind and up the mountain like bright yet invisible colors. Reaching her hand upward, it began to glow the colors of aurora before shooting a beam of light upwards into the sky from where she was standing, like a beacon of sorts. The mountain was extremely dark from the level she was standing, therefore she could not see anything above her besides the beacon she had created, not even the cavern that had an opening meters upon meters above her. As the beacon shot upward it pulsed the colors of the northern lights, reflecting small waves of light that swirled together to showcase her current location. She wished that this could get Sirius to notice her if he was really there, but she was unaware if he was or not. All she could do was wait for a response, big or little, before she could decide what to do next. Desirée stood in silence as she watched the beacon of light stand there, shooting directly out of her hand in a perfectly vertical position. In her heart and mind she wished that he would be there, as she desired to become stronger under his guidance. She hoped he would be willing, but was unknowing as to what would come out of her desire.

    It had taken a couple of hours for Sirius to calm the woman's grieving soul. Even now with his best attempt she looked as though she was going to burst into tears any second again, but he at least managed to calm her breathing so she wouldn't hyperventilate and was now able to speak properly without any stuttering. She was far from recovered. But given her situation, he did not think recovery was going to be such an easy thing, even with her stubborn nature. It took a lot to break her, which meant climbing back up was going to be just as hard. Like they say, the greater they are the harder they fall. But this was Vivian's granddaughter, and in some weird way, his great granddaughter. If he knew anything about the Foss family they were fighters. It would take a hell of a lot more to completely smash her to pieces. And even when in pieces, the remnants were still there. Persistent little things, that family is. But given their history, he could see why.
    "Here you go. Drink up" the elder white dragon used his tail to bring down half a coconut shell, filled to the brim with a colorful swirling liquid to the elf who was currently sitting upon the floor of his cave. The liquid, to Astrid, would be a familiar one. It was the same substance she used to unlock her soul guardian some odd months ago.
    Astrid peered down with a disgusted look in her light red eye, the side of her lips curled upward.

    "You can't be serious... Sirius, i'm in no mood for jokes." She huffed, looking up from the fill coconut shell.
    What else had be expected? Not much else, really. He had guessed she would reject the idea of using the liquid again, given her disgust last time. Why were humans like this? All he wanted to do was help her, but she acted like what he was offering was a hate crime. It was a natural liquid, much like all liquid. Even if it came from himself, it still came from nature himself. What was so disgusting about it? First Vivian and now her, humans really were all the same.

    "I am always serious, it's my name." The dragon stated rather matter-of-factly.
    The two stared at each other. It was true, he was always serious about what he said. She should know this by now. He may sometimes tease, but he was not the joking kind of guy. If he said something would work, then it would work. They needed to get that eye fixed, pronto. There was no joking about something as important as that. It was infected, he could smell the rotting meat wafting out from it. They would have to act fast. There was no way they could save her eye, but if they could at least save the rest of her face then it would be worth it all.
    "The power used to remove your eye was unholy, extremely dark magic that not even an advanced healing spell can fix, which is why even your elf blood could not restore it. But unlike gods or demons, dragonic power is purely neutral. This does not make use weak, not in the slightest. Because we are neutral and are not stronger against one side of the spectrum, we do not have a weakness. Which, makes our power extremely useful in situations like these."
    The dragon moved his tail forward towards her face slightly more, keeping it there. Astrid pouted, staring at the rainbow liquid before taking it from his grasp, defeated by his logic. She lowered it into her lap, watching her image thoughtfully in the reflection upon the surface. After a moment of staring, she lifted a finger and traced it around the chasm of her eye socket.
    Sirius frowned. "I am sorry to say, this will not bring back your eye. But it will at least heal it enough so it doesn't rot the rest of your face away."
    Astrid continued to trace over the edges, a few moments of silence following the two before it was broken by a single inquiry.

    "Am i still pretty?" The silvernette questioned, seemingly out of nowhere, placing her arm back down to her lap. Sirius was taken aback by this somewhat, as his yellow orbs shined curiously with question.

    "Pardon?"

    "I wish for a family of my own one day, it's a dream i've always had since i was a child. In order to do that, i need to get married. To get married, i have to find someone who finds me attractive. To be attractive, i have to be pretty." While being somewhat calm up until this point, the elf's words started to shake and become weak. Her remaining eye once again wielded up with tears. "But now that there's a gaping hole in my face, am i still pretty?"
    Sirius solemnly gazed upon his shivering student. She had once again broken, due to her own specie's deranged thoughts on what qualified you to be beautiful. In their society, there was a massive pressure about one's appearance. To some, it was all that mattered. Astrid had never been one to think about that kind of thing before. At least, not like this. She was rather girly with her appearance, but he had never seen her so greatly care about it before. Though, given she was missing an entire body part, he could see why she would start to care. Unlike dirty clothing or shaved hair, an entire body part was not as easily replaced or regrown. She would have to live with it missing for the rest of her life.
    Sirius let out a huff through his nostrils in thought.

    "Beauty is a subjective thing. While one person may find something pretty, another one might not. But the human species is very different compered dragons and most other kinds of beasts. Unlike humans, dragons do not care for scars. In fact, in some aspects, they are seen as trophies. If you manage to get a scar or some kind of wound from a fight, it shows you were brave enough to challenge an opponent more powerful than you, and you were strong enough to live. It does not matter if you won the fight or not. The fact you are still alive shows great power and persistence."
    Astrid gripped tighter onto the shell, her sad frown forming into a neutral expression, looking up to her mentor.

    "But what if you continue to get scars? Doesn't that show that you are foolish to keep challenging stronger opponents like that?"

    "It could either be bravery, or pure idiocy. Like i said, beauty is subjective and dragons are no exception to that. I don't know about humans, but dragons are very attracted to bravery, may it be blind or not."
    Astrid's expression grew soft, gaining a small smile upon her lips, seemingly getting over whatever hurdle was getting her down. She gazed back down into the liquid.
    Seeing her once again at least content also brought a smile to the dragon's scaly face. But he could not help but notice there was something a little more to her look. She looked relived. Not just by his words, but her own thoughts.
    "You seem very happy by that information. Is there perhaps someone you're wanting to impress?" he'd tease, his deep voice filled with a laugh that had yet to leave his throat.
    Just like he had hoped for, the silvernette's face flushed a bright red. But, unlike what he had wanted, there was no snappy reply or a threat to cut his tail off. No playful rejection, no temper tantrum. Nothing. Instead, she actually replied like a calm and collected adult.

    "Possibly. If they're the type of dragon who likes dumb bravery."
    Though embarrassed, she still held a content smile upon her lips. Sirius, though taken aback by this answer, was just happy she wasn't crying anymore. If anything, she seemed fairly comforted by his reply. Which, is all he could really ask for.
    He was tempted to ask who, but that may be pushing things a bit too far. He was lucky to get this out of her more than anything. Normally, she would have gotten flustered and angry at him for asking. But now, there was something different to Astrid.
    He couldn't put his claw on it, but she looked... A little more like an adult.


    ...

    ...

    ...

    An adult. That was a weird thing to think about. He still thought of her as a child, at least in age. But he guessed to a human, her age would be around an adult's... Humans really had no idea about maturity.
    Sirius opened his jaws wide in a yawn, curling his tongue backwards as he did so. Despite the dark, it was actually fairly early in the morning. The only time he got up this early, was when he was training with Astrid. But because she was here for a long period of time, it had been pretty much every day for three months straight. It was tiring, to an old beast like him. He liked his slumber, and had managed to sleep for years on end before she stumbled up his mountain.
    But, maybe getting a schedule again was good. Sleep, while he thought was good, was not so good for his body in reality. It was apparent during their first fight, he had lost his edge through the years upon years of resting in his cave and ended up loosing to the dragon slayer quite easily. Granted, she literally had the upper hand with her magic, but still for his reputation to had gone down a little too quickly.
    Maybe waking up and training with her was a good thing after all...
    Looking up at the star lit sky and pondering these thoughts it was a few moments into his thoughts that he was disturbed. In a quick moment shining lights were flashed into her vision. This caught him by surprise, as all he had been doing just before was staring into the dark. The light, while not too powerful, agitated his vision as it had been summoned just inches away from his face.
    He snapped his neck back in pain as his eyes fizzled, and roared out in a fit of both surprise and anger. It took a couple of seconds to fade, but the pressure against his eye sockets were still there, lingering black spots pressed against his vision. Dazed and confused, he lifted his wings and flapped once, lifting himself off the ground. He accidentally ran right into the top of the cave, as he could not properly see where he was going. But another flap released him, and crumbled a little bit of the cave entrance. By now the spots were gone, but that did not mean he wasn't agitated. Serious, who let  a beacon go off right in front of someone's face?! That was just rude. If they wanted his attention they could just, you know, come up to him and ask. What was it with lesser beings and disturbing him? First Astrid had used his tail as a rope and now this person was using a light to blind him. Why did he even help these people?
    Sirius circled the mountain for a few moments in order to locate the beings, and directed himself to land in front of them at the base of the mountain, the source from where he pinpointed the voice was coming from. He dipped down and landed with a great thud before them, golden optics blazing. He bared his fangs, holding himself high.
    "Who dares disturb the elder white dragon!?" He roared out darkly, glaring at the blonde who shone so brightly. Most likely being the one who sent such a bright beam of light.

    Desirée Blooms


    The beacon that flew out of her hand shimmered greatly, the northern lights sparkling with small crystals on the inside as they flew. Desirée's white and blue boots stood firm on the ground as she shot this beam upward, her hat fluttering slightly with the power and lights that bent through the winds. As the light flew it pulsed similarly as her heart did inside her body, holding close two lacrimas in which sat securely inside. It was a strange concept to think that two materialistic things could grant something so much magical power, especially since they were produced by another being of the sorts. It was different to think that they could allow the wielder to do different things from the normal mage as well, being that they allowed the holder to consume the element in which corresponds to the lacrima's type. Desirée never expected herself to hold one let alone two lacrimas inside of her body; she expected to stay a summoner forever. It was disheartening yet empowering to witness the falling star liberate the restriction of summoning on her body, as it was something that she had done for so long. Despite the event only occurring months ago, she still felt like it only happened yesterday; the colors exploding on the beach of Rose Garden, the crater forming wit her body lying in the center, the red and blue blood combining to make a deep purple with golden flakes swirling about. It all felt like it had just happened, when in reality it was months upon months ago. It felt the same way about her establishment of Crystal Swan, it felt like it was just yesterday when it was truly established nearly three months before then. As she stood there and channeled her magic through her hands in the form of a beacon, her guild mark just under where the beacon illuminated greatly; blues upon blues, blues upon swans.

    The mountain and ground began to slightly shake, throwing the beacon off of vertical balance and causing it to fade into the dark sky around Terasu. Out of the cavern system seemed to come a flying mass in the shadows, that of which circled the mountain rather quickly. "Is that.. him?" Desirée and Platinum both said quietly in unison as they held their ground as it shook, the presence of the dragon being nearly too much to be able to hold on with. After a few moments he began to descend to the location in which the party stood, clanking down onto the ground in-front of them with a large thud and extremely bright presence. As he landed, his presence swept Desirée off of her feet and caused her to fling backwards through the air, her hair and dress flowing greatly like white, yellow, and blue colors of the sky that was not above. Doing nearly a back-flip in the air as she was flung, not on purpose but by physics, her skin began to glow in fear due to the landing that was about to commence. As she landed, she landed on her stomach and face directly onto a rock, sliding nearly one-meter backwards due to the amount of force exerted onto her body to fly backwards. Skidding part of her face, light-blue and thick liquid began to slowly pour from her cheek and part of her forehead, golden sparks shimmering as they made their way down her face onto the rocks below. Desirée breathed heavily after the impact and caused her hand to glow immensely, shooting a wave of northern lights toward her forehead in order to heal her wounds. As the wave hit her head her pain felt relieved, and her cuts began to gloss over rather quickly. As she slowly pushed herself back up from the ground and onto her feet, she picked up her hat that had flown off in the process and placed it back upon her head, pushing back her blonde hair behind her shoulders and wiping off a bit of blood that had dripped onto her left under-eye.

    As Desirée listened to Sirius speak, his words suddenly hit her- she had disturbed him with the beacon. "Fuck." she thought to herself as she slowly walked closer to him alone, Platinum and the bio-luminescent organisms standing to the side after they got up from the blast that had affected them slightly as well. Although the force did not push them as much as it did Desirée, Platinum still held a few drops of blue blood on her clothing and scarf. The guild master walked toward Sirius and proceeded to look him directly in the eyes, her presence illuminating the area around her greatly with multi-colored lights. "I am Desirée Blooms, I have come to Terasu in order to see the elder white dragon Sirius." the slayer said rather loudly in order to answer his question, her eyes switching to a vibrant golden color as she spoke. Her eyes began to glimmer as her verbiage slowly poured out, the golden color shifting around with darker and lighter versions of itself like liquid gold; it was truly magical, it was full of light. Her hand covered the center of her chest as she looked at him dead on, producing a large array of multi-colored lights as if she was creating a small portal to go inside of her own body. As the lights formed into a circular shape, her hand seemed to sink into said portal and grab hold of a materialistic object, but what was it? It was the lacrima itself, tied to a beautiful pendant that branched designs of crystals and symbols off the sides with silver and golden plates. The chain that was connected to the lacrima was a beautiful silver with golden fragments embedded into its sides, and swung rather long. Tied around the fingers of Desirée while holding various elements of white light around it, the pendant glowed significantly around the illuminated presence of the slayer and the white dragon.

    "I currently wield a lacrima that was produced by Sirius thousands upon thousands of years ago. It has been passed down from Queen to Queen of The Chrysalis Realm, and now I possess ownership of it due to my status of being the current Queen." the slayer told the dragon as she spoke, resulting in Platinum walking up behind her while carrying the bag of the belongings Desirée had brought with her on this expedition. As platinum walked to the side of Desirée, her eyes began to shine the same color that Desirée's did, symbolizing that she was indeed the same as the guild master was in a sense of being. "It has been a while, Sirius. I am the first Queen of Chrysalis, Platinum, the one you gave the lacrima to so long ago. I'm not sure if you remember me entirely, but I definitely remember you." the Crystal spoke, her heart on her cheek beginning to emit a bright pink glow in response to her verbiage. "I led Desirée to this location because she is different than all the other past Queens of Chrysalis. She was not born Crystal, she was born human, but became a Crystal due to a rare event that happens once in a universe. She is rather significant in Earthland, being that she is a Guild Master and Idol, and possesses great power from your lacrima in addition to another that resonates inside of her body. I brought her here to possibly train under you, so she can reach her full potential." the older Queen spoke and slung Desirée's bag over her shoulder, Kiwi and Strawberry joining their presence and floating on each side of the two Queens as they stood. Kiwi stood strong on the side of Desirée while Strawberry hid behind Platinum's neck, being afraid of the giant dragon that stood in-front of them. To prove their authenticity Desirée held the pendant with the lacrima in-front of her, it slowly swinging back and forth in the wind that flew gently through the land that they stood upon. The weapon sitting on her back in addition to the presence she emitted, the two beings floating on either side of the party as her eyes shone, she was coated in various colors of light, which radiated almost as beautiful as the northern lights that stretched across the skies. Platinum wished that Sirius would accept their request, but all they could do was respect whatever he had to say.

    Bright yellow oculars stared down to the two figures before him, never removing his sight from the blonde one. It would be rather hard to do so in the first place anyway, seeing how she... Shined so brightly. Both her blood and just her entire presence in general. Sirius shone rather brightly also. The tip of his tail was constantly alight, and his scales naturally reflected said light off of them. It was how he earned his nickname, 'the brightest star.' Minako had given it to him after seeing him flying through the night sky during the war all those countless years ago. He shone so brightly against the inky blackness, even more so than the regular stars. When others were lost, he led them the way with his beacon of hope. The tale was born soon after, a tale for those who had lost their way and needed guidance. Follow the brightest star. If you follow the brightest star, you will once again find your way. And for people like Vivian and Astrid, that way was Sirius himself. This girl, apparently, sought his guidance too.
    Just how many lacrimas had he given out again? It was a question that the elder dragon himself didn't know. It had been too many years, and too many people within his life to properly calculate. Lacrima were hard to produce, given they took a large amount of power to store and crystallize. Therefore giving out a lacrima was a precious symbol of loyalty and trust. Minako had earned his lacrima during the battle for Earthland. She used a great amount of her power to seal away the seven demon beasts, and in doing so almost died. That sort of bravery and self sacrifice, to a dragon, meant a lot. The goddess was willing to die for the sake of her people. So during the ceremony of peace, where each god gave a lacrima to their respective elder dragon, Sirius had kindly rejected the idea of taking anymore power away from her than needed. Instead, he gave her a lacrima of his own, and in return asked for nothing more than to be able to exist under her name.
    The second, was Platinum herself. As the pink haired woman approached, the elder's dragon's fiery gaze soothed down to a dim light. He blinked, and relaxed, staying silent and thoughtful through her explanation. He dipped his head, a small smile forming at the edge of his lips.
    "Dragons do not forget old friends. It is nice to see you are doing well, Platinum." He greeted her happily. The former queen had taken quite an awful blast for him during the war, a blast that may have otherwise permanently placed him out of commission for good. In which, it almost actually did for her. The queen was in a weakened state, on the very verge of death in fact. But Sirius was not one to let others take a bullet for him and die. To save the young queen he had used his power to produce a single lacrima and placed it inside of her. Being a significant piece of his healing power, it had managed to do the deed quite well, and healed her in full. Even after the war, the elder dragon refused to take it back. He told her it was a prize, a rare gift given to those worthy enough in his eyes. She had his blessing. And in a way, she had his friendship.

    His yellow gaze traveled to the swinging pendant held in the blonde's hands, watching it go back and forth. He did not even need to look at it to know it was the same one he had given to Platinum all those years ago. His power was still strong, and radiated off of it like a pulse.
    Settling his eyes back on Desiree, he would then close them in thought. "So you wish to train under me?" he questioned, reopening his eyes after a moment. "It should be said that i do not train just anyone, child. Even if you are now the queen of Chrysalis, a guild master, and an idol figure it does not mean you are worthy of my teachings. Titles are meaningless when it comes to real power. To become my student you must prove your worth. Only those wise and strong enough may come under my wing and-"

    "Trois souris aveugles. Trois souris aveugles. Voyez comment ils courent. Voyez comment ils courent~" A sudden French singing voice interrupted the dragon, as from the mountain came down Astrid herself. She skipped from each one of the crumbled rocks to another in her pajamas, descending downward while singing the nursery rhyme in the foreign tongue.
    "Ils ont tous couru après la femme du fermier. Qui a coupé leur queue avec un couteau à découper~"
    Once she reached the bottom she would continue. "Avez-vous déjà vu un tel spectacle dans votre vie? Comme trois souris aveugles?" Though to many people this sort of thing would feel normal given her childish nature, someone paying close enough attention to her face may notice her one remaining eye was closed, even while she approached the group with her back slumped, a goofy expression upon her sleeping face.
    Sirius watched as she came over towards them and went over to Desiree, stopping just before her and the former queen. After a moment, the elf would wrap her arms around the blonde in a inhumanly tight hug and press herself up against her, petting the top of her head like someone would do to an animal, a giggle sounding from her lips. "Bon minou! Soft kitty warm kitty little ball of fur. Happy kitty sleepy kitty purr purr purr~!" She cheered happily, hugging her tighter.
    All Sirius could do, was offer the girl an apologetic look.

    "I apologize about her. She has a habit of sleep walking. This is my other student, Astrid. Much like you she wished to train under me. I know she may not seem like much, but her performance in battle has improved greatly since her training with me started."
    Astrid nuzzled her face against Desiree's cheek, letting out another light laugh.
    A sweat droplet formed on the side of his face.
    "I do not recommend moving. She has quite the temper, even more so in her sleep. I fear if you reject her advancements you may loose an arm or two. But still, back to the situation at hand. Since Platinum sees potential in you i shall give you a chance. If you can prove you are worthy of my teachings, i will train you. If you refuse the challenge or i do not see anything that interests me you are allowed to keep my lacrima, but you will never know of its true power. That being said..." He looked back over to the sleeping Astrid, who was currently still deep asleep and not letting go of the guild master anytime soon. "Your challenge is to fight my student, and win. Do you accept?" he questioned, looking back to her.
