    Job Sign-up (level your ass Luceam)

    When you had travelled the world, seen many sights and even gone through portals to other worlds you might think that you had already seen everything there was to see. And you'd be wrong. While the portals might be a way to visit strange places it still limited you to those limited locations which were linked, and you were bypassing a lot of area in between point A and point B.

    Or to put it otherwise, even when you'd seen the world and several others you still had space to explore, and all those places which didn't have a convenient portal leading to them. There was no such thing as having explored everything: the frontier would just keep pushing onwards. The only creatures which could possibly claim to have explored everything worth exploring were those of omnipresent and omnipotent nature, and even with those Akeya would argue that those terms only meant that their limits had yet to be found, not that those limits didn't exist.

    Pondering about the nature of reality aside, Akeya had received one of the strangest jobs so far. Apparently her new task was to help explore space. And a planet which couldn't easily be accessed by portal. The job came from the Rune Knights, so she presumed that it was an exploration effort from the magic council itself passed down to their executive branch who then hired some outsider mages who were thought adequate.

    Having thought of this the dragoness had frowned at the implications. While she'd definitely become stronger the most likely reason why someone would consider her a good candidate for exploring space... She had been revealing her tricks to the wrong people. If it became common knowledge that she had more than the powers of dark at hand it could become a problem. As long as she was seen as a dark dragon who happened to be cooperative people would be wary but tolerant. If the wrong powers began to see her as someone meddling in the balance between several vital fundamental forces in reality they wouldn't be quite so willing to let her do her own thing.

    The dragoness had sat down and considered her options carefully. If she ignored the summons and went into hiding they probably would designate her as a liability. If she went there was a bunch of things they could do, ranging from experimentation to simply killing her. Either way there wasn't an easy answer, in which case... she might as well go and see if she could steer the situation to favour her as much as was possible. Truth be told she was actually interested in the idea of going to space so it wasn't that she had objections to the job itself. Only the circumstances left her suspicious and wary. However if she was going to be in trouble either way she might as well take the path where she both had a better chance of improving her odds and where she could do something that she really, really wanted to do. It would be her first time in space but she already had the feeling that it'd be a lot more enjoyable for her than for most other people.

    After all, most people needed an atmosphere to survive.

    And so it was that the dragoness arrived at the spaceport. The Rune Knights weren't going so be as reckless as to just hand some mage a shuttle and let them have at it. Swishing her tail Akeya stood outside of the complex and looked up at the tall shiny walls which hid the vehicle which would serve as their ticket to the skies. She wasn't planning to board herself but she still had to get herself registered. Space travel was relatively new in Fiore but the people in charge were aware that it was an extremely dangerous endeavour where they couldn't afford to cut corners. Grumbling about the idea that data about her would be written down but resigned to the knowledge Akeya went through the registration procedures. At the very least she was still written down as an unaffiliated mage as her draconic self and she hadn't had much trouble hiding her guild mark: the visual part was easily obscured and messing with magic perception was one of her specialities.

    Once all that was done she returned to the outside as she waited for the other mages to arrive. She had been informed that aside from the scientists that she would be protecting for the duration of the trip there would be three other mages with the same task: one outsider and two Rune Knights. A careful balance to ensure that there were enough executives present who could be considered both responsible and reliable. Akeya snorted as she crouched in the shadow of a building and set herself to wait. Her dark scales resulted in her quickly fading from sight until the only thing left of her presence was the faintest of magical presences, more likely to make someone feel like there was a strong magical background than that there was an actual person. She even went so far as to erase her presence as a living being so nobody with detection tricks would bother her until she was done waiting for the others.

    Once one of the other mages arrived she'd get out of the shadows to greet them. Until then her emerald eyes studied the area, taking in the sights of one of the more advanced and strictly monitored places in all of Fiore. She had already suspected as much when she arrived, but some more inspections had made it clear: even a stealth specialist as her would have a difficult time getting into this facility without being detected. The place was filled to the brim with magic circles and magic tools that helped record everything. There was even hextech, that mysterious combination of magic and machine which Akeya had always thought was a curious creation even if she acknowledged the potential threat it posed when used as a weapon. As long as she didn't move she could probably remain unseen, but if she tried to penetrate any further while sneaking...

    Gazing up at the sky she looked at the clouds. While there were patches of open air it was a somewhat gray morning. No sign of rain but not the kind of day most humans would want to spend outside. Beyond those clouds and that blue sky was the infinite void of space, filled with countless stars which illuminated the vast emptiness. Her invisible claws dug into the ground in front of her as she kept staring upwards. She didn't fear space: she had little reason to. But she didn't know what it was like up there. In the past she'd flown high, higher than the highest clouds, high enough that she could see the planet curving away beneath her. But that still hadn't been space.

    It really was a new frontier, and even someone as stoic as her couldn't deny that she wanted to go there as soon as possible and find out what kind of secrets it contained.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    Well, this was certainly going to be interesting.

    The newly named Field Marshall for the Rune Knights was both intrigued and intimidated by this job she and Mythal had been asked by the Magic Council to assist with. It was a mission that involved traveling into space to visit another planet, of all things. Never once in her life had Serilda ever considered the possibility that she might journey into the greatest field of Void known to man. It was exciting to say the least, but also a bit daunting.

    Granted, that may have been because the trip was supposed to last for a few months -- and apparently that was a short span of time when it came to space travel, though Serilda could only take the word of others on that as she had no knowledge whatsoever about prior such journeys. At first she had argued against it. After all, she had only recently taken over the Rune Knights and there was a lot of rebuilding and reorganizing to be done. She didn’t want to leave them without not just one, but two of their highest ranking officers for such a long period of time. However, she had been assured on several fronts that the Knights would be fine without the two of them for the time being. Onida was still there, and on top of that Aster, Branwen, and several members of the Council promised that they would help keep the Knights busy.

    The reality of it was that they put this job at such a high importance that it was more imperative to them that they have high quality wizards on the job even at the cost of taking the heads of the Rune Knights away from their posts for a time. As such, Serilda had found herself packing the things she’d need for a long trip, both for herself and for Xiuhcoatl. The wolf wouldn’t be any use at all on this mission, but due to the nature of their bond Serilda could not leave her behind for such a long span of time. The scientists they were supposed to be working with and protecting had explained to her that there would be more than enough resources available to accommodate both her hound as well as Mythal’s.

    The job itself was apparently an exploration mission of sorts where they were going to try to mine some of the planet’s resources for study. Serilda was an obvious choice because of the nature of her magic -- she would be right at home in space and the atmosphere. Mythal, on the flip side, was ideal because of his sheer might. There was no telling what kind of strange and powerful creatures they could encounter out there, but Mythal was strong enough to help keep them at bay. There were also two other mages that were supposed to be joining them, though Serilda had not been given their identities beforehand.

    “I’m all set when you are,” she told Mythal. Since his home was closer to the station where the ship was supposed to launch from, Serilda had just stayed at his house the night before. Truthfully they had been staying at one another’s homes quite often since returning from Kingdom Darkness. Now that the air had finally been cleared between them, a lot of things had gotten better. Mythal was finally acting like himself again around her, and it felt good no longer have any secrets between them.

    On the flip side, of course, they had also set themselves up for some serious backlash in the future. Faera was certainly not pleased in the slightest that Serilda had kicked in her door and torn her army to pieces, preventing her from using Mythal as her vessel. Both of them were certain that the nefarious goddess would find a way to get back at them sooner rather than later, but for now they were safe. Or at least, as safe as Serilda could be with her new employment.

    Becoming the head of the Rune Knights wasn’t the only new position she had received recently. Ozorith had been almost eerily silent since Serilda had agreed to be his Sword. The demon lord hadn’t even made time to check in on her since the battle in Kingdom Darkness, though it was possible he had been keeping an eye on her and just not revealed himself. He had an irritating habit of doing that. With any luck the asshole just had more important or interesting things on his plate, but somehow the longer he took to contact her again the more uneasy she felt about him. Perhaps she’d get lucky and he wouldn’t be able to find her while she was in space. The thought of him being angry about her disappearing for a while made her smirk.

    The two Knights made their way to the meeting spot. When they got there, it seemed they were the first to arrive. Their packs had been left with the shuttle’s crew, who would take everything inside for them so they could get the chance to meet with their companions beforehand. There was a ton of magic buzzing in the area, as well as bodies moving in every direction in preparation for take off, so she wasn’t exactly paying too close attention for any potentially hidden bodies. Even then, the nature of Akeya’s magic in turning herself intageable would prevent Serilda from sensing her until such a time as she took on a physical form again.

    Though Serilda had packed more casual and convenient clothing for the extent of the trip, since she had been asked to come on this specifically as the Marshall for the Knights she had thought it prudent to arrive in her uniform. It was a primarily black outfit, trimmed with white along the hems and gold bands around her biceps. The outfit was quite simple and far from flashy, but pressed and cut to perfectly fit her frame. Over her shoulders she wore the black cloak that was only issued to the Field Marshall, the gap between either side of the cloak fastened together with a golden colored rope. On her chest above her left side pocket was the three star badge of her rank.

    Xiuhcoatl sat patiently at her heels, panting happily as an common house dog might do. The wolf knew that she was not here on duty, and thus was quite relaxed. Serilda stood at ease with Mythal, chatting with him idly as they waited for their other companions to arrive. She looked up at the sky often with a subtle but noticeable look of anticipation. Or was it trepidation? Both emotions were similar enough to one another, certainly. But she carried herself as confidently and coolly as ever, and was indeed quite eager to see this exotic mission to its end.

    Space, the final frontier, the ultimate danger for any oxygen based lifeform. A job to explore a previously undiscovered and unknown part of space, when Luna heard the call she couldn't say yes fast enough. Along the train ride Luna was studying some research into space travel, and some versions for space travel. One that interested her was the first generation of solar based power, known as the Sunglider series for having a large pod shape with several sails along the top and sides. The amount of effort and risks it would take to enter and exit orbit and survive, however models remain for luxury usage, since it was not mechanically operated it had no engine noise, it was just peaceful.

    Luna found the prospect of solar based powers for engines as she found them a renewable source source and the only one self sustaining enough for a long term journey. She then read some reports about a colony that had crashed on Earth-Land, coming from a similar world via a crashed space craft. From what they were willing to share, they use some advanced form of solar based power that used a modified Lacrima to emulate a miniature sun creating what is known as the Dyson class reactor. However it was not a perfect design, still requiring to be recharged by exposure to a sun at intervals.  Still quite the remarkable feet of magical engineering.  

    When Luna got off the train she made her way to the facility, putting her iLac away as she was awe struck by the ginormous facility that was housing the craft. Luna felt it best to show up early and go through the registration procedures early, in case there were complications and issues she needed to sort out early. She left her will at the guild hall clear in case she died, but still there were things that the Rune Knights wanted to confirm. Her records and past were clear, however the issue always came back down to her physical details.

    Ever since the Fiore government changed her records without her consent or knowledge, she suffered having to correct people but today was just Brobdingnagian  in comparison. During registration she had put down her correct info, but since her human form was no longer considered her 'real' form, more of just a holdover from when she used to be human. She put down her fairy form information in addition to her human, but the Rune Knights seemed to be insistent on verification, Luna had responded by repeating that she can't instantly revert. In the end she eventually caved and turned into her fairy form, measured and weighed to confirm her claims, only to learn that there were further forms to sign. The sight of the fairy trying to sign a pen when she was barely taller then it was a near endless struggle. However when another Rune Knight, their supervisor passed by, curious as to why the fairy was struggling with a pen learned of the situation, only to apologize to the fairy and inform the guild master that there was no need for her to alter herself. The Rune Knight was curious to see what a fairy really looked like, trying to get close to some perverted fantasy and while Luna was on the surface calm and forgiving, she was not entirely pleased for the inconvenience after she expressed her inability to revert for a period of time.

    Noticing an empty planter, she explained her state to the Captain and requested the usage of the planter to at least summon one of her bound spirits for support. She did not want to strain herself early on, the Captain was sympathetic to her plight, and after learning that she informed the registrar that she could not return to human form several times, she dismissed the man pending review of his punishments and permitted Luna to use the empty planter. It was not to be used for a couple days so she figured it couldn't hurt to use. Finishing up the paperwork, Luna flew over to the planter and summoned forth the Nature Wolf known as Aegis to come forth.

    Fearing that some would be uncomfortable with a canine walking about, and while Woody was the proper class to call for situations like this, he was a known disgrace in his native world for his drinking.   The green wolf was not pleased at all to hear the story, however he grabbed Luna's pack and adjusted it to carry on his back. Luna packed only a few casual outfits, her spare qipao sets, and her winter and swimming clothes. In addition to which she packed 2 strange boxes approximately 15 centemeters in length and width each, both expanded, one into an outdoor kitchenette and the other a tent. He then bowed down and let Luna on top of his head. The fairy gently glided down to the top of the wolf's head.

    While Aegis had his plate full with his pups at home, and keeping troublemakers at bay, he was glad to pick up the slack of, the less professional spirit. The role of Woody is to look out for their fairy, but until Luna is in danger he couldn't care about anything other than getting drunk or finding a brawl. When Luna was on deaths door, Woody had a choice to be the one to save her or break his drinking record, he chosen to break his drinking record, Aegis had no words in any language to describe the level of anger he felt, on par with the day he watched Zixcor gut out the last fairy he was bound with, mostly because Woody ignored Zixcor trying to kill yet another fairy.  He recalled the fight that happened when Aegis returned back to the Forest Beyond the Horizon, it resulted in a fight that reduced Aegis's meager faith in Woody to nothing.

    The Nature Fairy sat on her knees atop of the wolf's head, wanting to get some fresh air the canine slowly walked outside. She knew she was not alone, and that there would be two Knights, and one other unaffiliated wizard.  However when the Green wolf walked outside, Luna happened to sense a familiar presence and turned to notice Serilda with two wolves and a man. Luna tapped the head of the wolf and pointed towards the group, who immediately made the connection as he walked over to the group.

    Aegis would sit in front of Serilda, he glanced at the astral hound but kept silent as he had to keep Luna's safety in mind. His eyes stared up at Serilda, not quite sure what to make of the woman just yet. Luna looked up at the familiar sight of the noblewoman. "Hello Lady Serida, it has been a while since we last met, glad to see it is under, better circumstances. Are you here for the job as well?"

    Post by Mythal Ragnos on 27th February 2019, 10:21 pm

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    Space. Why did they need to go to space?

    Mythal wasn’t thrilled about this job; not even in the least bit. The idea of leaving the planet, practically so soon after he’d come back to it, didn’t sit well in his stomach. He’d heard tales of special vehicles that could breach the very curvature of the planet and head off into the great, blinking unknown but never had he felt a compulsion to be on one of those ships. The Darkness King had seen enough unknown in his lifetime already and, given that he and Serilda had more than likely started an interdimensional war, he was bound to see more. In truth, he would much rather just be taking it easy than going on any grand adventures.

    But life didn’t work out that way. Shortly after coming back from Kingdom Darkness with Serilda, they had been put in the unfortunate and dramatic positions of fighting off a dark wizard invasion that had savagely made the Rune Knights nigh extinct. Within a short amount of time, the Voidwalker had been nominated and voted in as the new Field Marshall of the order and after some consideration, he had been given the rank of a General. The title still felt strange to taste; like a sour grape that still had just a bit of sweetness in its form. Mythal had never been one for leading… much of anything, so the fact that he was now in charge of a full branch of the magical military was perhaps the strangest part of it all. Serilda handled the occupation with the same grace and dexterity that she always did. The God Slayer felt more like a fish trying to swim in sand.

    That, frankly, should have been enough to adjust to. Then came this job; some major company called Zirconian Industries was planning a three-month long trip to some planet they had cleverly – or so they thought – named Constantine. They believed it was possibly hospitable and wanted to send their own scientists there to collect samples and what not. But they didn’t want to send them alone; they needed protection from any creatures that could prove to be violent or dangerous. Two other wizards had been reached out to besides the two of them but they seemed rather insistent that the Rune Knight pair take the job. Mythal, to be honest, didn’t want to – after everything, he didn’t want to be traipsing about the cosmos. But if he didn’t go, that meant that Serilda would be gone for half a year. Given everything that had happened between them, six months apart was absolutely not going to happen. And the God Slayer knew well enough that Seri wasn’t one to turn down help when she could give it.

    How does one even pack for space travel? That was his first question as they had started gathering their things together. Longest he had spent away from his things had been a week, maybe two at most. Then again, he hadn’t exactly had things to care about until he had joined Fairy Tail all those months ago. Rather than overthink it, he had simply prepared the same supplies he brought with him on jobs. He just… packed a few extra pairs of clothes to go along with it. When he was about as set as he could be, he trudged the bags downstairs and waited until Serilda was ready, simply staring out the window at the yard just beyond him. He seemed lost in his thoughts before he turned, having felt something trip his senses.

    That same odd sensation. Ever since he’d journeyed back to the monastery he’d trained at and read up on how to harness his new magic, he’d been experiencing sensations; pulses of magical energy that seemed to resonate from the ground. Each time he’d gone to investigate them, he’d been less and less careful with his inspection. At first, he had stayed a good distance away, then he had hovered over one, the next time he had poked it with a stick and finally he had simply pressed his finger against it. It was only when his flesh had made contact did anything happen and all it did was… stop. Like turning off a leaky faucet, the pulse was gone and what was left was an awareness. A connection had been formed and from that moment on, he had been able to pinpoint the spot no matter where he was. He’d honestly assumed that what he was feeling were small mergence points between Kingdom Darkness and this reality; weak points between the realms where they intersected. He felt like he was closing off those openings, thus keeping the toxic realm from leaking any more of its infectious magic into his world. But he couldn’t honestly be certain.

    Whatever the case may be, he had simply continued to put ‘stops’ on the points. Now one had popped up over in his kitchen. He walked over and bent down over it, staring down at the tiled floor with such focus, one might have thought he was seeing some specter. In fact, Gren was so curious about what Mythal was doing that he wandered over and sniffed the ground, just as interested as Mythal was. “Don’t think yer gonna find anythin’ there, pal,” the God Slayer said with a grin as he reached up and scratched the pup behind the ears. Then he followed it up by pushing his finger on the ground, thereby sealing the new spot. Within seconds of standing up, he could already feel the area within his senses.

    He walked back into the living room just as Serilda entered, he walked over and hoisted his bags over his shoulder. “As I’ll ever be,” he said with a shrug but a smile. Despite the lunacy of the job, he couldn’t help but feel better with her around. With everything as packed as it could be, they set off for the station and boarded the train. It wasn’t a long trip to get to the launch pad that Zirconian Industries had set up and once they were there, the God Slayer was treated to a whole new slew of sensations and smells. There must have been hundreds of people within the area, each one moving with such swift and excited paces that their footsteps in the shadows felt more like drumming. He focused on the sounds and mentally forced them to diminish, relaxing his senses as best he could. Last thing he needed was a headache before they went into space.

    Whereas Serilda had dressed accordingly to her title, Mythal had opted for his usual outfit. Despite the fact that he had been given an official Rune Knight uniform with its fancy threads and shiny medals, he hadn’t actually put the thing on yet. General he may be but he wasn’t going to let an occupation diminish his fashion sense that made him feel the most comfortable. If anyone really needed to know what rank he was, Serilda would be more than happy to tell them. Gren was running circles around the couple’s feet, wuffing excitedly at all the new sounds and smells. Several times he peeled away to watch a group of scientists and engineers run past before he came galloping back with barks that seemed to tell indistinguishable stories. By the look of things, they had been the first to arrive. “You know… I keep tryin’ to tell myself ‘hey, it’s like a paid-for vacation’. But that just doesn’t seem to do anythin’ for me,” he quipped as he looked around the place.

    A half a moment later a dog came padding over to them, with an odd bulge on its head. Mythal watched it approach, his head cocked as he looked down at the small lady that rested on the dog’s head. A familiar scent reached his nose, causing his face to scrunch in thought. Had he seen this woman before? For the life of him, he couldn’t place the face but the smell was familiar. Maybe he’d run into her at some point. He felt Gren rub up against his leg, as he set himself down on the God Slayer’s foot and looked up at the new dog seated in front of them.

    A nice bonus to being able to hide was that you got the opportunity to check out the situation (and the people) before you had to engage. In this case Akeya had the opportunity to see what kind of people she'd be working with. This mission would take a lot longer than usual so the better she and the rest could cooperate the less of a hassle it'd be. On short missions you could work together with people you didn't get along with but on longer missions strained relationships would cause mental stress and fatigue to build up which would compromise the entire expedition in the long run.

    And in a situation like this that could be fatal for everyone involved. Stranded on another planet if things went wrong you could end up unable to return if you didn't work together and kept things functioning.

    As you would expect from those under direct command of the magic council the Rune Knights didn't take too long to show themselves. One of them was Serilda, which caught Akeya by surprise to the point that she almost would have moved. Last time that she worked together with the woman she'd been formal but she hadn't said anything about being part of the Rune Knights. That definitely explained how the government had learned about her expanded repertoire of abilities though. It was too late to undo that now, but she should still be more careful in the future.

    Serilda's companion wasn't someone Akeya recognized by face, but there had been rumours about someone who'd only just begun making a name of themselves and who'd already achieved ridiculous levels of strength. That was probably this person. As was usual for Akeya she began to calculate her odds of being able to take him down if she ever needed to eliminate him, but the numbers didn't look very promising. If she knew more about his abilities she might be able to think of a plan but the difference in power meant that it would never be an easy task unless he had a ridiculously fragile weakness somewhere in him.

    So two Rune Knights, one that Akeya knew and could work with and another one who was definitely powerful enough to both be a respectable asset to the mission and a genuine threat if things went south. Not the worst combination.

    The third mage was a curiosity in her own way. Akeya had heard a little bit about the guild master of the Aurora guild but she hadn't known about her being a fairy. Thanks to her sharp senses she could pick up on the commotion as the people in charge learned that the lower ranked Rune Knight taking care of the registrations had pushed her into taking on her fairy form for less than savoury purposes. The dragoness supposed that even amongst the magical police you'd get some oddballs who'd start doing odd things once they thought they could get away with it.

    Now that everyone was present it was also time for Akeya to stop being a voyeur and get out of her hiding spot. The tricky part was to not alarm anyone to the point that they'd immediately react with hostility. After all in such a high security facility having someone stealth around would normally be grounds for opening fire on that sneaky person.

    As the other three mages grouped up and greeted one another a small orb of light suddenly popped into existence above their heads. It was tiny and weak, too weak to be of any real threat to anyone present. In fact it was unlikely that even your average non-magical human could have treated that light as harmless. After orbiting the three mages twice the light slowly floated over towards the shadows of a nearby building. Once there it hovered in place as it began to slowly become brighter.

    With the shadows cast by the building slowly being dispelled Akeya's form also gradually became visible. It started out with a feeling of the air being distorted in that spot, then quickly progressed towards showing Akeya's body but as if made of glass so clear that you saw the way it twisted the light more than the material itself. After that the process sped up as the dragoness carefully stood up and stepped out of the shadow, holding up a clawed hand to recall the orb of light and reabsorb it back into her body while walking towards the other three mages with a serpentine gait.

    "I believe this makes all four of us." She studied the other three mages one by one, giving Serilda a quick nod to show she still remembered the void mage. "To keep things brief for the two of you that don't know me, I'm Akeya. I'll most likely be the one taking care of physical tasks along with scouting." She then focused her emerald gaze on Luceam and Mythal. With one hand on her hip she pointed at the two with her other hand. "It seems everyone here knows Serilda so that leaves you two to introduce yourselves so we're all playing on the same field."

    It looked like the rest of the facility was also aware that the four mages were now all present. While things had already been busy the air now picked up the atmosphere of hustle and bustle that was iconic for when it was almost time for the deadline and suddenly everyone either remembered something that still needed doing or picked up the pace to make sure they'd all make it in time. While they all had enough time to introduce themselves and maybe hold a brief conversation it probably wouldn't take much longer before they'd be dragged along into those last-minute preparations. Even if they were simply the bodyguards they wouldn't be allowed to come along without at least the most basic form of debriefing to make sure everyone was aware what exactly what was expected of them and how they really didn't want to mess this one up.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    Serilda wasn’t entirely surprised that Mythal had chosen to dress down for the initial meeting. Even though he was a general -- a title she knew he was still having a difficult time adjusting to -- the branch he had elected to be in charge of required a certain degree of anonymity. He was better off not drawing a lot of attention to himself in that regard, though given the things that had happened and the fact that they were currently surrounded by Knights most everyone present in the area would have recognized both of them with or without uniforms.

    She chuckled a little when Mythal confessed that, despite his honest attempts to find a way to look forward to this trip, he really wasn’t mentally prepared for it in the slightest. “It’s definitely more than a little intimidating,” the white haired woman told him in a soft voice. “Honestly, I’m not all that certain that I’ve come to grips with it myself. If you weren’t asked to be a part of it as well, I don’t think I’d have agreed to it.” Though her tone was quiet, he’d be able to sense the nervousness in it.

    Shortly following that, they were approached by a tiny woman astride the back of a forest colored wolf. Serilda frowned only for a moment in confusion before she recognized Aurora’s guildmaster and her confusion was replaced with a smile. “Master Luna, what a pleasure to see you again. I apologize, I didn’t recognize you right away in your Fairy form. And please, ‘Serilda’ is fine.” Luna had fought a literal war side by side with the noblewoman, and through both of their efforts they had managed to come out of things alive. Serilda saw little need for the formality of her title from someone she now viewed as a comrade.

    “We are here for the protection detail, yes. I’m glad to see you were selected to come as well. Your talents will be invaluable on this trip, though I hope none of us have to use our magics too much.” She had not forgotten that Luna was primarily a healer, which they would certainly need if they happened to come across any dangerous unknowns on the planet Constantine. With any luck the group of them would just be there as a precaution and not wind up being needed, but luck rarely seemed to favor anyone so Serilda preferred to be prepared for the worst.

    She was getting ready to introduce the two present when she felt an odd shifting in the air nearby. A body seemed to appear out of thin air. For a moment it set her a bit on edge and Serilda turned to look in the direction it had come from. The person she was most used to using such methods to show up was Ozorith, whom she greatly did not want to see any time soon. Instead, surprise took over her features as she saw yet another familiar face approaching them. It was followed by another small smile, as she was quite pleased to see the dragoness join the three of them.

    Akeya was about as business like as Serilda typically was -- one of the reasons the two of them had worked so well together the last time they’d been paired up. She wasted no time introducing herself and giving a brief idea of where her particular skills lay in magic. “Allow me,” Serilda said gently when Akeya inquired to the identities of the other two. As the one person here who happened to know everyone else, manners dictated that she provide introductions.

    Gesturing toward the man beside her, she said, “This is Mythal Ragnos, one of the newly appointed generals for the Rune Knights.” Given that they were here for work rather than for pleasure, Serilda didn’t bother to expand on her relationship with the fallen god slayer. While the two of them never took any steps to actively cover up their romance, they also weren’t exactly the most public of couples anyway. They rarely showed signs of affection in front of others, and while they were working they were typically entirely focused on the job at hand and getting things done. The two women joining them would probably realize after a while that the two Knights were dating, but it would not be due to any blatant or obnoxious acts of predilection.

    Moving her hand to the smaller woman, Serilda continued. “And this is Luna Mira, guildmaster for Aurora.” While the noblewoman still didn’t have too many brush ups with members from the legal guild, perhaps the introduction would jostle into place the recognition that she didn’t realize Mythal was having trouble putting his finger on.

    Xiuh had been spending most of her time here thus far eying her younger brother to make sure the pup didn’t wander too far. Gren was equally as inquisitive as the older wolf was, but not quite trained in discipline and demeanor yet. When Luna had approached with Aegis, the Star Wolf’s attention had immediately been drawn to the new kin, her ears perking with interest and curiosity though she did not start forward to greet the other canine. Instead, she waited patiently to see how things would fall between the humanoids. Though, her tail did thwap happily against the ground when Akeya approached, and Serilda could feel the hound’s joy at the dragoness’s familiar presence.

    Now that they were all present, many of the smaller worries that Serilda had regarding this trip were starting to fade. She was grateful that she at least knew everyone and had an idea of their capabilities. Several months was a long time to spend with total strangers, but she felt the team had been well picked. All around them the scientists and those who were in charge of preparations went about completing their last minute tasks, and it likely wouldn’t be long before they were signalled to board the ship.

    “It’s been some time since I’ve seen either of you,” she commented to the other two women while they waited for things to get underway. “I’m looking forward to working with you both again. Is there anything you need before we get called off? If there’s anything the Knights can provide before we leave, please let me know and I’ll do what I can to ensure it’s handled.” Once they were gone there would be no coming back for quite some time, so if there was anything they wanted or forgotten now was the time to speak up. Otherwise, it was just a matter of waiting to be invited on board by the crew they were to be protecting.

    Post by Luceam on 3rd March 2019, 2:25 am

    If anything, Luna was intensely glad that there was a familiar face on the job, she was almost surprised that she wasn't recognized at first until she recalled that while she introduced herself as a fairy to Serilda, she did not get to witness Luna's fairy form. She usually only turned into her fairy form in somewhat private places or when it is necessary in some cases such as intense injuries. "I suppose that is true, I usually keep to my human form out of habit, plus in most jobs I am in human for as my offensive capabilities deminish as a fairy, but my healing abilities are far superior. Although I am only in this form because a Rune Knight was well, quite willing to lie to my face and abuse authority to see an actual fairy. Said I couldn't list my dual physical information and race as fairy without proof. It was only afterwards that his captain, well, sent him away. Honestly I felt a second longer and he'd ask if I had a tail. Although between you and me, I think he deliberately hid the last contract to see me struggle."

    The fairy stroked the fur of the green wolf she was siting on as she began to introduce him to the group. "This is one of the spirits I am bound with, Aegis. " While trying to ignore his wagging tail, Aegis tried to remain professional as he calmly spoke to the Rune Knights. "Hello, I am just substituting for the spirit who should be acting as support. He's, not suitable for a professional environment."

    Luna could sense something form as it approached, it wasn't teleportation as it was too slow for that, the fairy nervously looked over as the dragoness materialized, jumping back in a fight or flight response while Aegis seemed to quietly growl at the dragoness. Since this was supposed to be a friendly (allied) environment, both the Nature Fairy and the wolf were wary of the dragoness for a while. Luna floated in the air as Serilda taken charge, she was glad that there was someone else to take charge as she wasn't really qualified given the situation. She admired how pragmatic the dragon woman was and decided to follow suit and explain her own capabilities. "I am a Nature Fairy, my talents lie primarily in healing, but with defensive and long distance offensive capabilities through summoning spirits from another world or just creating plants. I also have a Zodiac Celestial Spirit under contract."

    Luna fluttered over to Serilda before she sat down on the woman's left shoulder, figuring that there would be a lot of standing around for a while and exhausting her wings too early would be rough. "Oh, sorry La- er, Serilda, just well, my fairy form's physical stamina is actually sub par for fairy average. Flying has a physical and magical component."

    Aegis rolled his eyes as he saw the true problem right away. "Would be easier if you emptied your wings a bit more often. Your dust isn't a bad thing to stock." Luna sighed as she really did not want to have this talk. It's one thing if it is to cover an immediate wound but being caught trying to stock Mediocris Lacrimis is very embarrassing. "I can't, If I do it too often hunters will find me."

    The wolf opened a side pocked with his mouth, and noticed the filled bottles of glittering powder and sighed before closing the pocket.

    Luna was not much of a leader, true she can do some amazing feats, but the head of t
    he Rune Knights was a far superior choice to a small Guild Master, quite literally as well. In the presence of Serilda and Mythal, two renowned figures of power in the country, leaving her feeling quite small in comparison on the inside as well. She was humbled by the request of Serilda, but she was well prepared for this journey. Although she was left wondering if the pay was going to outweigh the preparations she made. She only had four responsibilities and made sure that all would be taken care of for the next month."Thanks but I am fine, already taken care of guild affairs, not to mention hire about four different babysitters, so I got the first month covered until my mother takes over. Basically did everything possible, only thing left is for the Magic Council to send in my stand in for the book work."

    Luna mulled on that last point for a moment, she is guild master in title and authority, but her control is severely limited for the time as the Magic Council doesn't trust her completely yet. She was essentially promoted to keep the guild intact as a last act to keep the guild alive after the downfall of it's last form and the previous masters, knowing that keeps making her feel inadequate.  However she was surprised when Aegis spoke up. "She'll about six small empty vials, and an ounce of cursed salt in a separate container. I have no doubts your organization has a supply obtained by confiscation. It's an illegal non lethal poison nearly indistinguishable from regular salt."

    Luna sighed as he knew where this was heading, Cursed salt was one of the more common poisons, while not powerful, it has been known to paralyze, and in rare cases permanent paralysis. It is also one of few ways to burn out excess Mediocris Lacrimis and similar forms of fairy dust, naturally even fairies access is restricted and heavily monitored which is why not many are forthcoming, and let piles stock up.

    Post by Mythal Ragnos on 3rd March 2019, 6:36 pm

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    More than a little intimidating was putting it on a very, very small scale. But at the same time, they all sort of mixed together, didn’t they? Both Serilda and Mythal had journeyed to another realm – arguably multiple realms, considering their other jobs and such. Different spaces that were apart from their world, dimensions that differed in existence and quality that many would think are straight from a storybook. Putting it to thought, it wasn’t that unreasonable to think that heading into space was actually the more logical adventure they had gone on in terms of wayfaring. That didn’t make it any less scary but it did take the edge off, if only by a little bit.

    “And of course the only reason I agreed is because half a year without seein’ you sounded stupid,” he said, explaining his fear of not seeing her in the most romantic way he could fathom. “Either way, too late to back down now.” They had already agreed and made all the preparations for their long voyage. Branwen hadn’t exactly been keen on keeping his duties so soon after the guild attack but after an explanation, he had understood and accepted. The God Slayer had a feeling he was going to have a retirement letter on his desk when he got back from the man but there wasn’t much he could do about that. The Major had gone through a lot in a short amount of time and he deserved a reprieve after it all.

    The small woman that approached them astride a dog was apparently recognizable to Serilda, who greeted her by name. ‘Master Luna’ caught his attention as the two women exchanged pleasantries. The Voidwalker had mentioned the dangerous and violent job that she had partaken in with the guildmaster of Aurora some time ago. This apparently was she, though Seri had failed to mention she was a fairy. Not that it really mattered to Mythal at all – he shrugged mentally at it and moved on to the concerning issue of some Rune Knight that had apparently lied to gain some viewing of the woman. The Darkness King scoffed and shook his head – they were still in the midst of trying to weed out the bad eggs within the Knights and it was proving to be a trying task. He imagined that Serilda would take a moment to have a word with the aforementioned man, possibly to release him from his duty. The day was starting out so well.

    The hound spoke up after his introduction, easily making words for them to understand. The God Slayer was surprised for a brief moment, evident by his raised eyebrows, before he settled into relaxation once more. “Well… nice to meet ya, Aegis, Luna,” he said, turning to look at each one of them in turn. Gren, despite his inquisitive nature, managed to keep himself safely poised next to Mythal’s leg, his little tongue hanging from his mouth as he turned his head to look at each person and being talking.

    Then there was a small shimmer in the air, that put the others on alert. Mythal surprisingly just turned to look at the source of the disturbance, far more relaxed that either Luna or Serilda. He’d grown accustomed to people appearing this way – simply manifesting out of the air like they had been part of it. If it was an ally, they’d know soon enough. If it was an enemy… well, they’d still know soon enough but Mythal would probably be too busy burying them into the ground to care. Instead a draconic woman stepped out of the airy manipulation, her form at first distorted before taking on a more tangible shape. The God Slayer watched curiously as she moved towards them, her pace even and lacking conflict.

    She was quite professional in her greeting, keeping things brief and straight to the point. A sentiment that he all but respected and appreciated. Her name, Akeya, sparked yet another memory of a story told by Serilda, of a partnership in combating werewolves. It seemed they had lucked out and found themselves paired with wizards that the Field Marshall knew. Good – that meant they weren’t journeying off into the deepest recesses of space with complete strangers. As long as Serilda trusted them, Mythal had no reason to doubt their effectiveness. Though the idea that Akeya would be the ‘one’ taking care of the physicality of the job was… an interesting statement. But nothing worth making a fuss over; time would only tell where all their strengths lay. And frankly if someone was more interested in taking on the physical tasks, all the power to them. The Voidwalker took the stand to introduce both him and Luna to the serpentine woman and the fairy explained what she was and where her focus was, magically.

    Not wanting to be the only one not explaining himself, he cleared his throat. “Uh, I’m a Fallen God Slayer. Also I use darkness magic. Mostly I just… punch things,” he said with a shrug. Short and sweet – just how he preferred it. Explaining his God Slaying status was far more than he would have done only a few months ago. But if they were to spend the next three to six months together, there was no point in hiding what he was. They’d see it firsthand, without a doubt.

    Luna settled herself on Serilda’s shoulder, explaining that her fairy form lacked the stamina of her human form. So she could change her size and capabilities; that was fun. The Aurora guild master seemed keen to talk with Serilda a bit so the Darkness King turned to Akeya, since it seemed they had a bit of time before they were going to get ready. “That thing you just did to appear out of the air,” he said, gesturing to the spots around her. “Was that some kind of shadow magic or somethin’ else? I have a friend that can do that too.”

    Re: [Job] Go Beyond! PLUS! ULTRA! (Akeya/BlessedBeatrix/Luceam/Serilda Sinclair)

    Post by Akeya on 4th March 2019, 5:59 pm

    It looked like Akeya's plan of showing herself slowly had paid off: while Serilda and Luna both showed wariness at her arrival neither of them took outright hostile action, giving the dragoness the opportunity to show herself as an ally so things didn't spiral out of control. If she'd showed up abruptly she was pretty sure there'd have been at least one spell thrown her way. It was one of the dangers you had to deal with when you hid your presence but didn't want to startle the people who weren't enemies.

    "The fact that you know all three of us is a good thing at least. Means that none of us are complete outsiders in the operation." She answered Serilda when the swordswoman had introduced the other two mages and had stated her pleasure at working with the group. "I'm not in need of any supplies however, unless you happen to have some light and dark lachrima lying around that you really don't need." The odds of her needing them was low, but if Serilda was offering she might as well see if they had some to spare just in case. She also nodded at Luna and Mythal, not going much further with the greetings as she'd already gotten what she needed to know. A healer with some summoning and large scale magic abilities, and a Fallen God Slayer. It wasn't the first time Akeya encountered the supposedly unholy counterpart to her dark dragon magic, although she had to say that this one had a stronger aura than the last one she had to deal with. Then again, that was already a while ago... she couldn't entirely trust her memory to be accurate there. Especially since that other person might still exist somewhere, and might have gotten stronger in the meantime.

    "If you're a Fallen God Slayer your abilities are probably similar to mine, although I'm guessing with more raw power and a focus on offensive ability." She observed. She wasn't about to go and pretend that her raw power was on the same level as this guy, although she didn't mind too much since she'd long ago prioritized utility and skill over the ability to destroy things. She was a predator after all, and most predators relied a lot more on cunning, skill and tactics than sheer power.

    With that said she looked at Luna when the fairy explained her situation. She'd heard about the situation with the registrator from outside due to her sharp senses. Hearing it from the one who had to endure it still helped drill home the message of how stupid that knight had been though. They were about to depart on a mission where a single mistake could prove to be fatal. Now wasn't the time to push one of the participating mages into potentially putting themselves in a less favourable condition just to sate your curiosity (and fetish). It'd make Akeya smack her forehead if it wasn't for the fact that there were already two high ranking Rune Knights here who could deal with it and get exasperated over it. Instead she raised an eyebrow as the guild master of Aurora explained that she couldn't shed her fairy dust too often in fear of hunters tracking her down. She could imagine that being a problem under normal circumstances, however...

    "I understand the fear of hunters, but I would remind you that in the coming six months you will be in a location where practically nobody not part of the expedition could even figure out where you are or what you are doing, much less track and chase you down." She pointed upwards towards the sky with a clawed finger. "There aren't a lot of people who could beat the frontier that is space, magic or not. Even this mission is a massive investment from the Magic Council."

    Noticing that Serilda's lupine companion was eager to see her Akeya moved the tip of her tail along her furry back once or twice before it returned to its position behind her. At the same time the draconic assassin looked at Mythal as he asked her about the ability she had used. Of the three mages here (other than Akeya herself) he was the least involved in the conversation so far. Was he just thinking about other things or he was another victim of the curse that all darkness users seemed to have, that they were disinclined to get themselves involved with other people if it could be avoided? Not that Akeya really considered it a curse: dragons were solitary by nature. But it was interesting how often it turned out that the one channelling shadows or darkness was more of an introvert. Given that humans were more flexible in what kind of magic they could employ maybe it was just that kind of person who was attracted to that element.

    More importantly she had to quickly think of how far she would answer the question. This man was an ally for the duration of the mission, and Akeya wasn't one to backstab her partners. That said she was a cautious person so 'ally' wasn't the same as 'trusted confidant'. Although it seemed the Magic Council was already somewhat aware of Akeya's situation... Well, they'd figure it out once the shuttle launched anyway, so there was little reason to hide it for the short period of time before then.

    "It started out as shadow magic yes. Given that you're a darkness user you should be familiar with that kind of technique. Although I've refined it by adding a second element to it: if I only used the essence of dark for it then another darkness mage would have an easy time picking up on it." She held a hand in front of herself, a sphere of light and a sphere of dark forming and orbiting around one another above the midnight-scaled extremity. "To avoid revealing too many trade secrets, using both light and dark allows me to hide myself in such a manner that neither light nor dark mages can bypass the effect." Closing her hand the two orbs disappeared and she let her arm fall back to her side. "Of course dark magic in itself is already very powerful when it comes to hiding, although most shadow creatures I've come across are more comfortable with the more standard invisibility or just jumping out of dark places, instead of completely erasing their presence."

    Thinking about Mythal's own darkness magic she frowned, then crossed her arms. "Oh, and I should probably mention this before it causes problems out in the field: I'm aware that normally God and Demon Slayers can eat Dragon magic but Dragon Slayers can't eat theirs, but in my case eating my darkness would be unhealthy. Dragon magic used by an actual dragon isn't as easily digested as when it's a human merely mimicking it." It was meant as a genuine and friendly warning: if Mythal carelessly tried eating Akeya's magic at any point he might get ill, which might not be dangerous in itself but which could become a problem if it happened during the middle of a dangerous situation (which would be one of the main situations where Mythal might even have cause to eat her magic in the first place). "Admittedly me having both light and dark also contributes to that. Either way, it's better if I inform you beforehand and not when we're in the middle of something."

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    As Luna confessed to Serilda and Mythal the truth of why she was currently in her fairy form, a single white brow rose slowly up on the Voidwalker’s forehead. Her jaw tightened with a simmering ire, and while the expression was subtle there would be no mistaking the very authentic and classic look of indignation that only a born noble woman could muster. In fact, it was the first time since meeting her that either Luna or Akeya would ever see Serilda actually hold any kind of imperious expression that was typically expected of those born to wealth and title.

    “Is that so?” she asked, her voice even but dangerously low with displeasure. Luna said that the officer’s captain had already handled the immediate situation, but that didn’t necessarily mean anything about the long term. This wasn’t a matter that Serilda could just put off addressing for a couple of days, not when she was going to be gone for half a year. It was not a behavior she would tolerate, and by the look in her eyes she planned on making sure it did not happen again. Her tone softened a bit as she said, “I sincerely apologize. The officer’s actions were unacceptable and not indicative of the way I expect the Knights to behave. Unfortunately, I’ve only been with the Knights myself for a couple weeks and am still weeding out the riff raff that have let the authority go to their heads. I will make sure he is handled appropriately by his commanding captain, and you have my word that it will not happen a second time.”

    The guildmaster introduced the wolf upon which she rode as Aegis, who then spoke up for himself and made his own greeting. Thankfully, the idea of animals speaking wasn’t totally foreign to Serilda anymore. While it had only been temporary, she had learned in Kingdom Darkness that Xiuhcoatl and Gren’s breed, known as Star Wolves, were actually capable of telepathic communication when the full extent of their abilities were reached. “A pleasure to meet you, Aegis,” she told the hound kindly.

    She was a visibly surprised when Luna flew up in her tiny form and perched on Serilda’s shoulder, but did not appear to be put off by the action. “It’s quite alright. Please do what you need to take care of yourself.”

    Luna insisted she didn’t need anything when offered, but was overruled by Aegis speaking up and volunteering a few things that would be beneficial for the fairy to have during the long journey. One of the items was an illegal substance, but Serilda trusted Luna enough to believe it was something that would be handled appropriately. In addition, Akeya stated that it wouldn’t hurt for her to have a couple spare lacrimas of light and darkness, just in case. Serilda nodded her understanding. “I’ll see what I can do.”

    As the dragoness and god slayer discussed a bit of their magics with one another, Serilda flagged down a passing officer who hurried right over to her and stood at attention. She instructed him to check the base’s stock for the requested items and to bring her any of what was available. In addition, Serilda also told him to have his captain summoned to her at once. The Knight bowed and immediately set off at a brisk walk to do as she’d asked.

    They were allowed several minutes to chat among themselves before the officer returned to them. In his hands he held a small box and a leather pouch. The pouch had a small handful of lacrimas inside of the type that Akeya had asked for. The man offered them to the dragoness when Serilda indicated for him to do so. In the box were several vials secured in grooves so they would not hit one another and smash to pieces. All of them were empty save for one that appeared to have a bit of the salt in them. Since Luna was currently too small to carry the item, Serilda accepted the box herself in the meantime. The officer assured her the captain was on his way, then went back to his duties when dismissed.

    Around this time, someone from the crew finally approached them and indicated it was time to board. The woman invited them to follow her so she could show them what they needed to know for take off. Seeing the captain hurrying over to their location, Serilda said, “You three go ahead. This will only take me a minute.” Once they weren’t immediately in earshot -- though those with heightened senses of hearing would probably still pick up the conversation -- Serilda gave the captain a stern talking to about the behavior of his subordinate. Truthfully, she was a little harsh on the man but not without reason. After all, though the actions had not been his it was the captain’s responsibility to keep his men in line, and if the officer had been bold enough to do this on a mission of this level of importance then it likely wasn’t the first time the man had abused his station. By the time the lecture was done, the captain had fully assured her that everything would be fixed by the time she returned, knowing that if it wasn’t his job might be on the line.

    She quickly caught up to the others as they were being shown where their living quarters for the next several months would be. The rooms were far from lavish, but that was to be expected. There was only so much room in a space faring ship, and the finances for the voyage needed to go more toward necessities than comforts. Serilda secured the box of vials in the room that had been given to Luna, making sure it was set in a place where it wouldn’t get knocked around during take off. The room she and Mythal were sharing seemed to have all of the items they had packed for the long journey tucked away as well.

    Once everyone from the crew and science team was on board and settled, they were lead to the spots where they could safely sit during take off. There were seats with harnesses if needed, as well as harnesses for the wolves inside a protective carrier that was welded to the floor. Serilda secured Xiuhcoatl and then took her seat, buckling herself in. There was a large, reinforced window in the room where they would be able to witness the transition out of Earthland’s atmosphere. Before long, they were rocketing up away from the surface of the planet and into the vast emptiness of space...

    Luna was not sure what to think as she listened to Akeya and Mythal talk about their dark magics. True she herself was not a god, but since Gods were natural enemies of Demons, who were the natural predator of fairies. However, the words of the dragon in regard to the dust were reasonable, but Aegis spoke up in her defence. "When you shed 15 grand a teaspoon, it can make you wary. Cursed Salt is the safest substance to dispose of her special kind, not all fairy dust is equal." Luna figured best not to take a side on the issue as she did have a slight counter argument to the comment about the frontier of space, there are plenty of dangers out there if there is a lick of truth to any of the stories she read on the way to the facility. "Actually, have you not heard about the Exdraxians? They are a homeless race of space traveling aliens that had no choice but to crash on Earth-Land, According to a rumor one joined Sabertooth, but there was a article on a blog that shown the same woman beating a child so who knows."

    She did not relish in the thought of being grateful for the predator of her predator's predator but unfortunately this was no simple situation. She figured best to see for herself what sort of man the Fallen God Slayer was. She listened to Serilda talk to the passing man, wondering what she wanted with the Captain, only to recall that Serilda insisted on punishing him. While she did not want to be the reason for any further trouble, she knew that the man had to be properly disciplined, properly.

    When the group approached the area, Serilda announced that she had business to attend to. Luna noted that Serilda was holding the box with the contents her spirit wolf had requested on her behalf.  Luna slowly floated through the path, roughly five feet off the floor and onto the shuttle, and was amazed by the ship. Luna and Aegis followed Serilda to the quarters assigned to Luna. Aegis secured Luna's pack before he stopped, visibly annoyed."I apologize you'll have to excuse me for a while. Ter is calling, one of the pups got into a snag." The Nature Wolf's body broke apart into green light particles that dispersed. When Serilda was leaving to attend to her other duties, Luna figured it best to tell her what she was about to attempt. "I think I can switch forms, but it will be painful."

    Luna looked at a clock annoyed, while time has passed, she still had quite some time before she could safely return to human form. She placed her hand against her chest, trying to feel her own heartbeat as when she first discovered her fairy form she thought it was the wings that were screwing over her ability to go between, but as it turns out it was her heart. The trait for possessing such a organ is a rare one, and overwritten any trace of humanity. Since her heart was a pure fairy organ, and the rest of her was a tenth human, it caused an imbalance. It was only times like these that made it become a major issue, even though Luna had absolutely no intentions on trying to 'fix' that defect.

    However since takeoff was within the hour she had no real choice in the matter. She grabbed an empty vial from her bag and put a funnel over it before turning her back to it, she made sure no one was watching as she flapped her wings a bit forcing out some of the glittering dust before taking a bit herself and swallowing it, hoping it would make things easier on her internal organs. She flew to the door and locked it before she would descend to the floor and envelop in a pink light. Outside the room screams of pure pain could be heard as her form violently shifted from the tiny fairy to the human. She had to cast off her items and Qipao which were the first things to form. She needed to retract her wings slowly as they integrated back into her body while she returned to her larger size.

    After the transformation was over, Luna was on her knees and feel onto her hands, sweating and breathing heavily in pain for a moment. She put all her belongings away safely before she put on her Qipao, and made her way out to the designated place for takeoff.  Luna was in great internal pain as she put stress on her various systems to perform such a feet. She was still straightening out her clothes before she sat down, hunched over for a moment as she stabilized herself. After buckling herself in, she made a quick glance to Serilda, her emerald eyes were full of bitter pain as if she just came back from her breaking point. "I am normally not one to suggest enhancing punishment, or be aggressive, but I want that bastard to suffer brutally."

    Luna braced herself for the journey as the shuttle would be taking off into space, nervous about if the ship would hold. She breathed slowly and carefully as she felt nervous about the pressure of the spacecraft being shot into space. She would have loved to watch the view but until the ship safely left oerbit her eyes were closed. Once they were safely in space, Luna unbuckled from her seat and stood up slowly. Feeling a rush of endorphins as she felt like she just went through several rounds in a boxing ring with a god. "This has been, quite the trip already. Sorry about what I said earlier Serilda, just what's left of my humanity gets in the way sometimes. Unlike me, my mother and sister are pure fairies and don't suffer the delay, it's just the delay issue is very personal."

    Post by Mythal Ragnos on 9th March 2019, 5:09 pm

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    Gren happily wagged his tail as he looked at all the people that had shown up, the extra limb practically a blur behind him. He stuck close to Xiuhco, having grown accustomed to staying by his sister unless noted otherwise. The older hound was far more proper and controlled than the younger, though that wasn’t to say that Gren was wild. It was more that his stature remained that of an excitable pup rather than of a trained hound. He watched in curiosity as Akeya’s tail came around and ran itself over Xiuhco’s back a few times, signifying a friendly greeting, to which the smaller Star Wolf wuffed. He interwove between Xiuhco’s legs and popped out from beneath her chin, looking up at the half-dragon woman with more interest than the rest of the party.

    “Comes with the nature of things, I guess. My usage of magic isn’t exactly… as mainstream as the rest,” Mythal explained, shrugging once more. He’d seen enough Slayers and heard enough about them to know that normally, they had a fairly similar magical pattern. They involved roars and bellows and spells that carried the magical type with them. Mythal had a few that invoked a chant, but they were rare and usually required a lot of magical build up. Instead, he used the magical core he had to bolster his own physical strikes.

    But considering they had similar magics, Mythal was curious to the nature of Akeya’s. Markus had been more than happy to talk about his and basically open the comparison, but he knew that not everyone was as forward as him. If there was a hesitation or moment of thought on Akeya’s part, it didn’t show as she spoke evenly about the nature of her magic. She explained that it had started as shadow magic and instead added a second element to her pool – light. Using both of them, she was able to manipulate both the shadows and light of an area to hide herself quite effectively. That was pretty impressive, considering he had recently gained the ability to sense any and all creatures that moved in the darkness. “That’s pretty impressive,” he said, nodding. Markus and now Akeya both had abilities that could cloak themselves from the senses; it made him wonder if that was something he should consider mastering as well.

    “Yeah… I found most dark creatures are far more happy just… poppin’ out of the shadows. Like boogeymen,” Mythal said in agreement. He hadn’t encountered a whole lot of darkness based creatures but the ones he had certainly felt the need to expel themselves out of the shadows. Predatory instinct at its best, he assumed. Akeya continued, deciding to add a warning label to her magical ability. She was aware that other Slayers were capable of eating Dragon Slaying magic but warned that consuming hers wasn’t advised. Apparently when an actual dragon used their own Slaying magic, it made all the difference. He did wonder if, being part human and part angel and the apparently ‘Darkness King’ or whatever it was, if that still applied to him. But he was not curious enough to test the theory. “Thanks. I don’t normally go around eatin’ magic unless it’s an enemy doin’ it… or someone is tellin’ me to. I think I’ve only done it a handful of times.” Christmas had taught him that if he ate enough of it, it apparently activated his Force. He hoped such an event wouldn’t come to fruition on this job…

    “Speakin’ of which. I have a uh… secondary magic as well. It basically pulls darkness from another realm that’s fairly toxic. I don’t know if it matters if yer a dragon or not but I’d probably say you shouldn’t eat it either.” He honestly wasn’t sure if Kingdom Darkness spells he used actually had the same toxicity as the realm itself, though no one he had used it on had become poisoned and died. Then again, concentrated abilities may have kept the toxicity from leaking out. He’d rather not take the chance and accidently poison the dragon woman.

    It was only a few moments after that that an officer came and delivered a few items to Serilda; resources that had been asked for by the Voidwalker and apparently Luna as well. Yet another brief passing of time and a crewmember was waving to them and asking them to follow them to the ship. Serilda excused herself, apparently wanting to go and deal with the disorderly Rune Knight now rather than later. Mythal watched her go until she was out of view and then entered the ship that would ultimately take them up into space. They were brought to their living quarters; professionally designed rooms that went more for functionality than design. The God Slayer looked about him and Serilda’s room for a brief time before heading off into a different section of the ship. He made note of all the exits; the ports and doors that could lead outside in case of emergency. He tested each one to ensure they were secure, not wanting to discover one of them was loose once they were out in the vacuum of space.

    He wandered into the engine room, his eyes roaming over the massive devices that would both launch them into space and then drift them all the way to the targeted planet. Mythal didn’t know much about engines or technology as a whole – such things had never really interested him. Hell, it had taken him a solid few years to even get an iLac, though he had managed to master it in a short time. Granted that was because he had instructions; he wasn’t one to go out of his way and make new parts of a device. He had barely maintained himself before he had joined Fairy Tail after all. He found his way to the mess hall, where several of the engineering crew were gathered and chatting. They were nervous by the look of them; the idea of going into space was far more intimidating now that it was actually happening. An announcement came over the loudspeakers, asking every one of the crew to take their predetermined positions for liftoff. That meant Mythal needed to get up on the bridge.

    Once there, he sat himself down on the seat closest to Serilda. Gren hopped up onto his lap and he pulled the harness tight against the both of them, the small hound’s tail whapping against his leg in excitement. He snorted a small laugh and rubbed the small pup’s head – someday they would find something that would scare the little guy. It was only a few moments later that the countdown started and they were lifted into the sky, soaring up through the pale blue sky and into the outer atmosphere of the planet. Considering he had utilized the ability to fly for quite some time now, the liftoff wasn’t too bad – though a bit rockier than he normally experienced.

    It was only after they were given leave to unstrap themselves and move about did the real impact of what was happening hit him. He moved over to the closest window and looked outside, his eyes widening as he stared at the blinking diamonds in the dark blanket beyond. The light of the world they had left was already fading away from view, the curvature of the planet leaving cone of the porthole. “So we’re really doin’ this…” he said with a small chuckle, shaking his head.

    Yes, indeed they were. And now they had three months of travel through the empty to attend to.

    Re: [Job] Go Beyond! PLUS! ULTRA! (Akeya/BlessedBeatrix/Luceam/Serilda Sinclair)

    Post by Akeya on 9th March 2019, 7:41 pm

    With Serilda having confirmed that she would ensure the delivery of the requested items that was one task taken care of. Akeya hadn't come here expecting to be offered free goodies (especially since she was here as a bodyguard, not as a guest) but once it was offered there was little reason to say no. Those lachrima would serve as a good energy boost if she ever came in a situation where she really needed to pump herself up. In space itself that would probably be unneeded but there was no telling how dangerous the planet they were visiting would turn out to be.

    While the leader of the Rune Knights was distracted by that task Akeya listened with a tilted head as the wood wolf claimed that Luna's fairy dust was unusual and that even in space it might not feel too safe to freely gather it. As the fairy herself then followed up that there had been sightings of an alien race that arrived in Earthland the dragoness had a thoughtful look in her eyes. "The wariness is to be expected but that doesn't mean you should be listening to it. That there's rumours about aliens though... that's more important. Given how big space is it's still one of the safest places if you want to be far away from those who would try to hunt you down, but I'll admit that if there's aliens which have found Earthland that safety has at least somewhat been compromised. We'd have to figure out how likely it is to encounter them during a random journey though..." She stared off into the distance as she tried to calculate it. Everyone knew that space was big, but how big was it effectively? If you left a trail of fairy dust just outside of earth's atmosphere how likely would it be that someone would encounter it before it faded away? Did fairy dust even fade? Questions that she could be asking before she decided that now was not the time for a thorough investigation of the fairy race.

    She nodded in response to Mythal as he explained that he considered his own use of his magic unorthodox. "My usage also appears to be a bit unusual. I'm more utility oriented than most." She had taken the magic of dark and light dragons and turned it into a bag of tricks. A bag of tricks that could kill if needed. While she had plenty of combat abilities as well she was at her best when she could get creative with how she applied her magic.

    "Thanks. I can say that combining light and dark was a challenge, but the results were worth it in the end." It had resulted in her nearly dying, but even so. Controlling two of the biggest opposites in existence and being able to merge them was definitely worth a near death experience.

    She was glad that Mythal didn't argue against her warning of not eating her darkness though. She was pretty sure that there would have been God and Demon Slayers who would have protested and boasted if you tried to tell them they couldn't eat a dragon's magic. It was good that she was working together with someone who took the warning seriously. "Eating another's magic is considered provocative or hostile, so the warning is mostly a precaution. And I understand, I'll make sure not to eat your magic either." While her draconic nature meant that other slayers had a hard time eating her magic it didn't miraculously allow her to eat any type of dark magic without repercussions. If the man said that his magic had a chance of being toxic for her she wasn't going to put that to the test.

    Taking the delivered lachrima Akeya went with the others when it was time to get onto the ship. First they were shown the parts of the ship that they needed to be familiar with, including the rooms that would act as their own. In the case of the dragon she wasn't too interested since, depending on the results of her test, she probably wouldn't be using the room a lot. However she still listened and explored the ship so she was at least aware of what was located where. It would be incredibly embarrassing if she got lost or didn't know where to go in certain situations.

    Hearing screams of agony her fin-ears spread wide and she walked over to Luna's room. Checking the door she found it locked, but on the other hand she didn't sense anyone other than Luna in the room and she appeared to be growing in size. Taking it that the fairy was turning back to human she left it be and returned to the seats where they would be strapping themselves in.

    Honestly she didn't really want to do this, but Akeya didn't think she could get out of using the normal method here. She wanted to fly out on her own strength but they'd reached the point in the trip where if she didn't follow protocol it could get complicated and annoying. She'd just have to endure the clumsy ascension managed by machines until they were high enough that she could put herself to the test. Once that was done she'd be free to move as she pleased.

    Having strapped in she was rattled and shaken together with everyone else as the shuttle struggled to break free from the chains of gravity and launch itself into the far beyond. It was an unpleasant process, especially since Akeya wasn't fond of vehicles in the first place. Fortunately she managed to fight off the nausea as she waited for the roughest part of the journey to end. Or at least the roughest part before they had to land.

    "This is definitely a first. But now I must go and stretch." Removing the straps that helped secure her to her seat she stood up and walked over to the big window... and then turned into a flash of light and stepped through it.


    On the other side of the window Akeya grabbed the side, hanging on for a couple more seconds to make sure her momentum and direction matched that of the ship before she let go. As she had expected because there was neither gravity nor atmosphere here nothing was slowing either her or the ship down, and the ship had already reached the stage where it didn't need to burn fuel to keep moving. The result was that even without touching the ship she roughly maintained the same distance from it as both she and the shuttle floated through empty space.

    Space was for many people a death sentence. No air to breathe, a vacuum which threatened to tear you open... there were many reasons to fear space. If you weren't suited for it.

    "Lack of breathable atmosphere doesn't appear to be a problem, body is resisting the pull..." There was no sound because there was nothing to carry the vibrations, but she muttered to herself anyway as she went over her mental checklist. "Eyes not blinded by sunlight... sunlight safely eaten... darkness safely eaten..."

    The void was cold. Unless you could eat it. The sun was hot. Unless you could eat it. A dark dragon would have to hide in the shade because in space the sun's warmth would slowly roast them. A light dragon would have to avoid shade because they'd freeze in the void. But if you had both...

    "No atmosphere to get in my way... no gravity well to slow me down... only dark and light... I could get used to this."

    Giving in to the desire to really stretch Akeya's body quickly began to change shape. Her scales now covered her entire frame as that frame quickly became much, much bigger. Her wings spread out, her tail became longer, her horns lengthened as her face turned into a reptilian visage. Her scales went from their usual midnight blue to a mixture of light and dark: they shone like stars where they reflected the light of the sun, and turned into the deepest void where the light couldn't reach. Within mere seconds the humanoid dragoness had turned into a full-fledged dragon, one of light and dark who freely moved about in outer space where dark and light were the dominant factors.

    "Much better. Compared to this living on the planet feels like being stuck in the mud."

    While there wasn't any air for her to fly through the fact that she was pretty much swimming in light and dark meant that propulsion was actually even easier than back on the planet surface. She circled around the shuttle several times as she tested out her movements in space before she was satisfied and turned back into light, flashing back inside the shuttle and turning back into her humanoid form.

    "Fair warning, I don't think I'll be spending much time in the shuttle unless you have need of me." She had a grin on her face that was very uncharaceristic of her, and she was looking out towards space with an expression of excitement that would leave those familiar with her wondering whether this really was the same austere assassin who at most smirked and showed approval of things. The way she was currently acting it was clear as day that she had found something fantastic and had to restrain herself not to immediately step out of the shuttle again.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    The launch into space was about what she expected. Forcing a large object through the atmosphere at a high velocity wasn’t exactly an easy task, and the ship did shake a lot. When they got into space, the rockiness died down pretty quickly at least. The captain of the ship turned on the artificial gravity, allowing them to walk about as normal. Serilda unbuckled herself and got to her feet after they were cleared to walk around, and loosed Xiuhcoatl as well. The wolf shook herself and stretched before wandering around the room to sniff it.

    “Looks like it,” Serilda offered quietly, standing next to Mythal at the window. She gave him a small, soft smile. The view outside was breathtaking. The curve of their home planet continued to become smaller as they drifted further away. Akeya excused herself and walked through the ship into the great unknown to stretch while the others continued to move about the ship. Serilda watched the other woman curiously for as long as she was in sight, her mind churning with her own curiosity. Could she do that, she wondered? As her Voidwalking magic progressed Serilda had learned long ago that she no longer needed to breathe, or rather could always breathe no matter if she was standing in the open air or submerged under water and so forth. Did that ability extend to space? She couldn’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t. After all, the magic was called Voidwalking and space was the largest pocket of void known to man. Perhaps she would join Akeya out there one of these days…

    Serilda chuckled a little. “Can you imagine doing something like this when we first started working with each other?” she asked Mythal. “Six months stuck on a ship together… I think we might have killed one another.” The woman was teasing, of course. The two of them had only gotten physically violent once, and that encounter had ended… well, not violently. But the thought still amused her at how far they’d come, not just in placed they had journeyed together but in their friendship and relationship as well. She reached over and gave his hand a gentle squeeze before turning to where Luna was speaking.

    “No need to apologize, Luna,” Serilda told the other woman sincerely. She had been a bit surprised to hear the fairy’s prior wish for the Knight that had humiliated her to suffer, but it wasn’t exactly an unmerited wish. And now it seemed her words had just come from a place of resentment and vulnerability. “I completely understand. I’d probably have said and thought similar things in your shoes. I had a word with his captain, and they both know that when I return the soldier’s behaviors better be cleaned up or they’re both losing their jobs.”

    Akeya returned into the ship, having reverted back to her more humanoid form. For the first time since Serilda had met the other woman, there was a wide, unreserved smiled on the dragoness’s face. The noblewoman couldn’t help but grin in return. “I don’t blame you. I will probably go out with you at some point, just to test my own magic out there. I wouldn’t be much of a Voidwalker if I didn’t actually take the opportunity to walk in the void, now would I?”

    Not long after that, another of the crew members approached and offered to show them around a bit more in depth through the ship. This time, they were shown anything they wanted to see, including the labs where the scientists would be conducting most of their research and experiments, the large dining area with the attached kitchen where everyone could get food, as well as several areas for lounging and relaxing. Even though the bedrooms they had been provided were a bit utilitarian, the individuals in charge of crafting the ship knew that they could hardly expect to keep dozens of people on board for half a year with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs. There were pool and poker tables, decks for all sorts of card games, boxes with other games and puzzles, shelves full of books, as well as several lacrimavisions that could play hundreds of options for movies or electronic games. There was a fitness center with weights for lifting, treadmills for running, and other devices for keeping active. There was even a room with a small spa for unwinding, though it was shared by both men and women.

    The next three months were spent in relative ease. Each of the four of them would have more than enough time to spend around one another and get to know each other, as well as the crew they were to be protecting. It was night to have so much stress free time to spend with Mythal. After everything they had gone through recently, the two of them sorely needed a break and this was exactly what she needed to feel refreshed and to just be with him. Serilda did make time to join Akeya outside the ship periodically as well, reveling with the other woman in the delight of space. Not only did she find that she could still breathe just fine, even in the vacuum, but she felt like her magic was swelling inside of her. It was like she had been exposed to a fount of endless energy that she could tap into and never go tired from using her magic.

    They also had plenty of time to be briefed on the mission itself. They were heading to a planet known as Constantine, which was only a bit smaller than Earthland. They had verified water on the planet’s surface as well as the possibility for life, which could be either exciting or worrisome depending on what kind of life was found there. Mostly, the scientists were looking to get samples of the air, water, and soil and compare them to that on Earthland. However, confirming the presence of life on the planet was also part of the mission. Seemed like asking for trouble, but there was no turning back now.

    Eventually the day came when they were ready to land. The wolves stayed on the ship, as they would only get in the way for this portion of the voyage. Suits were offered to those that needed them, as the scientists wouldn’t be able to confirm the breathability of the atmosphere until they were able to venture out into it. Serilda declined one since she didn’t need to worry about breathing; may as well save it for someone else that had greater need of it.

    When they finally stepped outside, there were no words to describe what awaited them. There were beautiful pools of shallow, crystal water around them. The vegetation was short, mostly grass and sparse bushes with no trees of any kind to be seen, but what was there was lush and vibrant. If there was water and plant life, there was sure to be animals and other sentient life. There were also a ton of rock formations, many of them reaching high up into the sky. The ground was hard, more stone than dirt, and with her magic Serilda could feel that it was also littered with a ton of underground holes and pockets of varying sizes.

    She took a moment to stretch her Void Sense out as far as it could reach. She could sense some smaller life forms shuffling around, but nothing that immediately seemed to present any danger. Thus, she helped the scientists with setting up their equipment outside so they could start the work they’d come all this way to do.

    Post by Luceam on 15th March 2019, 1:59 pm

    After witnessing the display of the celestial dragon, Luna was in awe. However the Nature Fairy seemed to spend most of her time in seclusion. Nature Fairies are not meant to spend time in space, the Wakusei Portals are tolerable as that is instant, but space travel seems to bring out the worst of Luna. No one had seen much of her, and she had rarely spoken with anyone, and most of the crew believed that she had gone insane when the most conversation anyone had gotten out of her was from a fern in the lounging area. Aside from one meal a day, 

    Throughout the journey, rumors had spread that she had lost her mind as even though she can talk to plants, not talking to a human seemed to be odd, however no one ever wanted to call her on it. She stayed out of sight, and when she did not eat for three days the crew members drew straws to see who checks on her. They did not want to bother the other wizards as the power couple of Rune Knights seemed to be busy, and the dragon too scary to approach. So they opened the door slightly and poked with a spare broom stick, however the broom stick came back missing a few inches. Luna spent those days in an intense meditative state to prevent the lack of Nature around her to cause insanity.

    When the ship landed on Constantine, Luna ran for the doors at an alarming speed. She could sense the natural life, and that was possibly the only thing that could rejuvenate her spirit. While not a jungle, this was the best thing could get at the moment. She breathed in the air as she seemed to calm down from the state she was in earlier. She felt like a fish put back in water. "Just sedate me for the whole journey on the way back."

    However Luna could hear the small vegetation around, their voices were small and Luna could not initially make it out as they were all in unison. However the Nature Fairy was uneasy, fidgeting her fingers and seemed spaced out as she felt an odd sensation, a dark ominous feeling from the grass. However the voices seemed to grow as Luna seemed to sweat, as the tone of voice used was not very peaceful to her. She tried to remain calm but her state of mind was on thin ice considering the ordeal she had just been through.

    However the voices became clearer, as they all overwhelmed Luna who started to back up nervously as she could hear them. "Unnatural, unclean, unwanted. Unnatural, unclean, unwanted." She started to get nervous as she looked around. She thought it was just everyone in general, travelers from a foreign planet. She nervously spoke to the local wildlife, hoping that she could clarify this. "Sorry, we're from another world, I know we seem unnatural to you, but we are as alive as any other being. Please, if you'll let me explain."

    However as a harsh wind blew, Luna heard every single voice from the plants and animals possible scream at her telepathically. "IT IS YOU THAT IS UNNATURAL, UNCLEAN, UNWANTED, UNNATURAL. DIE, CLEANSE THE UNNATURAL!" Luna felt pressured, and cornered as the voices grew loader in her head with malicious intent. She clutched her head trying to push out the plants and small animals but they seemed to grow loader, darker, her heart was racing.

    Tears shedding from her eyes she shouted back at the wildlife "ENOUGH!" and in that moment, in most of the area within sight all the plant life seemed to stick up and grow, Luna had forcefully evolved the plants, but they seemed to dry out and die off, as Luna forced the plants to evolve so far that they couldn't sustain the state and die, leaving stones, dirt, and now dust for quite some time.

    Luna had fell to her hands and knees, vomiting out at what had just transpired, shaken by the events. The small animals seemed to disperse out of fear, and Luna stopped hearing any aggressive response from the world around her. She calmed down enough to try and make a somewhat cogent sentence. "The life, is wrong, something wrong, uncleansed, dark, something, wrong, corrupt, the life, is wrong. Something, impure, something dark."

    Some of the botanists and wildlife scientists were murmuring, annoyed that their subjects were now gone.  However around her elbow, a pink liquid oozed out and formed a seed, dropping it into the ground before a twisted root shot up, untwisting halfway as it formed the platform that a magic circle formed on top of, and out of the circle flew out a human sized fairy with glorious butterfly wings. The Princess of the Forest Beyond the Horizon soon looked around. She was clearly not impressed on the situation. "We're not on Earth-Land?"

    She discended down to the traumatized Nature Fairy, sensing the issues she was having with the land, and sharing the same conclusion. She looked over to the plants, and lightly rubbed Luna's back. "Poor thing, how long have you been here? Nature Fairies are pure beings, this world is full of dark energy."

    Tierra stood up and looked at the ship that carried the crew here and had a stunning realization that not only was Luna put in a bad environment to bring a Nature Fairy to, but she was out of a planet for a while. She turned to Serilda and figured that better to explain to someone what just transpired. " I am Tierra, eldest princess of the Forest Beyond the Horizon. Excuse Lunaris's actions, I sensed her duress and came out of her survival instincts. You see, wherever we are, the plant life here has adapted to darkness. That affected the plants, which in turn affected her, as they probably told her something along the lines of killing herself. However not all the plants are dead, there are still some that are asleep, nocturnal."

    Tierra looked around, wary of what may come. "However, you humans are disgusting at times. You don't belong on this world, species of your caliber have no place being around here. "

    Post by Mythal Ragnos on 16th March 2019, 7:16 pm

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    With no turning back, it seemed they had very little choice but to adapt to their new lives for the next three months. Mythal tossed a glance over at Serilda as she joked about them taking this journey months ago, when they had barely known one another and were more prone to going at one another. He snorted and shook his head, chuckling. “Yeah, we barely made it a week before we were ready to tear one another’s hair out. Though we did find ways to blow off steam,” he threw the last part in with a cheeky grin, remembering their desert romp fondly. It hadn’t exactly been friendly or gentle but in the end, it had been something they both clearly needed.

    Much to his surprise, Akeya transformed into a literal figure of light and stepped through the wall of the ship, releasing herself to the void outside. The God Slayer watched as she hung near the ship for a few moments before her entire body transformed into that of a fantastic and impressive dragon. She soared around the ship a few times, clearly taking the time to stretch her wings and enjoy herself, before she changed back and reemerged. She had a wide, excited grin on her face as she entered the cabin once more, clearly more than a little elated to have the ability to swim in the emptiness. Serilda voiced a similar interest in testing her magic, to see if she was capable of moving out in space as well. “Somethin’ tells me I ain’t cut out for that kind of walkabout,” Mythal said as he glanced out once more at the stars beyond the thick glass. “So enjoy it doubly for us that can’t, eh?”

    Once a cruising speed had been set, they were offered a full tour of the rest of the ship. The crewmembers escorted them through the entirety of the, surprisingly, large vessel, offering up a platform for anyone to request a specific place or room. They got to see the labs, the dining area and the plentiful bounty of rooms for relaxation and entertainment. Apparently they had constructed a veritable cruise ship for the space trip, giving them plenty of options for enjoyment and options to amuse themselves. As they walked, Mythal actually got a good idea of just how many people were on board with them. His senses had picked up on the movements of all the people within the ship but sensations were still only one thing in comparison to actually seeing a full bodied person. This wasn’t some measly group of scrappy scientists and the guards sent to protect them. This was a true and full expedition to another planet, with scientists of every practice and study housed within the vessel. Well, at least if he had trouble falling asleep, he could any one of them to explain their field of study. That would surely bore him to death.

    While three months seemed like a long time, it was actually quite useful for the Darkness King. His God Slaying magic was something he had practiced and used for years beforehand – having been trained by the Midian monks to harness its power for his fighting styles. With his new magic, he had only barely scratched the surface of it or so he believed. The idea of leaving Earthland was tumultuous but it also offered the profit of time for him. Time he could use to master and become more comfortable with his magic. So after a few days of waiting to get more comfortable with the ship and learn the best places where he could experiment, he began to construct a routine.

    Master Ren had provided him with some scrolls to help him with his magical circulation, as well as his meditative focus. The God Slayer had always been fairly terrible had meditation and, while he still didn’t claim to be a master, he found it had helped him connect with the new force within him. So he used those as a foundation for the rest of his training; helping to mold his mind to a state where he could easily enter a quasi-trance and study the magic within his body. With study came experimentation and that meant utilizing more of it than he was used to. He’d figured out some spells from prior sessions but as the days turned to weeks, he began to understand the Embodiment magic more and more. Magical constructions that took more effort to create and summon became easier and his creativity with the force began to expand as well.

    But arguably what was most important was his understanding of the ‘spots’ he had noticed popping up. In the middle of the second month, one had appeared near the end of the ship, almost exactly centered on the stern deck. This became his place of focus and training, more curious about the spot and not wanting to immediately press his finger down upon it. Eventually he discovered that he could connect to the spot through his magic and, upon realizing that, came to understand that he could manipulate the spots. With a bit of poking, prodding and pulling, he was able to form a connective portal between the spot on the ship and one back on Earthland. Granted it wasn’t very large at first but… with plenty of time and practice.

    Before long, they had arrived on Constantine. Three months had come and gone and the ship had come to a firm landing upon the strange and new planet. Mythal, having voiced being far too lazy to care, had grown a rather thick beard that was far scratchier than he would have liked it. He slipped on the space suit offered to him by the scientists, as they weren’t entirely sure the air was breathable or not. But before he could even put it on, Luna went barreling down the liftgate without much thought and tore into the natural world outside. He looked at the scientists, who were it utter shock, and shrugged, tossing back the suit and heading down the platform onto the ground below.

    The world that stretched out beyond was both alien and familiar, in its own way. Water laid itself out in plentiful pools in several different spots, with mighty stone growths that thrust out of the ground and towered above the land. There was a severe lack of vegetation, such as bushes and trees, which made it all the stranger that the air was breathable. But truly what the strangest part was… was the energy. As Mythal stepped onto the ground, he could feel it. A toxic, powerful darkness that seemed to swim through everything around them. He paused, his brow furrowed in concern as his senses reached out to touch the darkness, clashing against it in disgust. He couldn’t quite hear the voices that were plaguing Luna but he could feel the angry influences attempting to hook into his senses and connect them further. He pushed back, easily cutting off the infection before it could spread.

    But not so for Luna. The voices wrought her mind and when she finally screamed out, her magic activated and messed with the land. To be honest, she had been a little worse for wear the entire trip. Serilda and Mythal had done their best to keep her involved and talk to her but it was apparent the disconnection from their home world had hit her the worst. And as she forcibly made plant life grow and then die around her, it was clear that her situation hadn’t improved. But before any of them would say anything – besides the murmurs of the scientists that had exited – a creature rose out from the ground. It first took the form of a growing plant before unfolding and revealing a humanoid-sized fairy. And boy, did she have an attitude.

    She made some simple observations about the world they were in before turning her attention to the group, introducing herself and explaining both Luna’s predicament and the world they had journeyed to. Yet despite all that, she couldn’t help remarking about humans, admonishing them for their being here. “Yeah, Imma stop you right there,” Mythal said, walking a few steps forward. “We’re here to do a job; to study the world. I ain’t gonna pretend I’m the biggest fan of humans either but I also ain’t lookin’ down my nose at them like you are. You’re from Earthland as well so in my mind, you don’t belong her either, pal. Your time would be better suited helpin’ Luna feel better than mouthin’ off. But thanks for the words of encouragement.” Now disinterested with the fairy princess, the God Slayer turned and walked a bit of ways from the group, apparently on his own mission. He’d already picked up a shadow spot and was far more intent on studying it than getting in a word battle with the new arrival.

    Re: [Job] Go Beyond! PLUS! ULTRA! (Akeya/BlessedBeatrix/Luceam/Serilda Sinclair)

    Post by Akeya on 16th March 2019, 8:20 pm

    Whether people took note of her being unusually excited or not was of little importance to Akeya as she had much better things to be occupied with. Namely space. It was big, there, and given that almost nobody else could survive in it in a way it was all hers to occupy and mess around with for the duration of the trip. While she did accompany the rest of the bodyguards for the tour around the ship so she at least knew where everything was she mostly did it out of courtesy and so she wouldn't get lost at a critical time than out of actual interest. While there was something awe inspiring at just how expansive this shuttle actually was (expansive enough that a whole troupe of scientists and their guards could be on it for three months without going absolutely crazy) at the end of the day it was all just so much area which was inferior to what was outside of the reinforced and meticulously constructed walls. The books and the labs would under normal circumstances have attracted her attention since she usually was easily drawn in by new knowledge.

    It was just that it still didn't compare to space.

    While she did occasionally pop back into the shuttle the dragoness wasn't lying when she said that she would be spending most of her time outside of the shuttle. This of course meant that she wasn't spending as much time getting to know the rest of the crew but anyone who knew the assassin would have known that she wasn't the type to socialize for three months on end anyway. As soon as she left the confines of the manmade construct she'd return to her draconic form, flying about and revelling in the sensation of space. A world much vaster than anything that she'd ever encountered before yet so open and empty.

    Swimming through the void she could see the stars like countless gem sparkling in the black seas. She could see how thousands upon thousands of pinpricks of brilliant cold light formed rivers and streams. When you were stuck on a planet you could see the vague forms if you were in a place without much light. If you were in a city or another location with excessive grounded illumination you would be lucky to see more than a couple of faint lights amidst endless darkness. Here out in space you could see the true nature of the cosmos. An endless expanse where light and dark mixed, danced around one another and formed elaborate patterns.

    She could have seen some of this from the supposed safety of the shuttle. But a window couldn't compare to having it surround you on all sides, and it would have bereft her of the sensation of the void itself. Hot and cold at the same time, lacking any form of obstacle or restraint. She hadn't been aware just how much the atmosphere pressed down on you until she had experienced this absolute lack of atmosphere.

    Even better, she was learning from this experience. Aside from having a nearly limitless amount of energy at her disposal since she was constantly eating both light and dark she managed to reach speeds which would have been impossible back on Earthland. Even light wasn't immune to the force of a gravity well, but out here she could move so fast that she could actually see herself moving from one planet to another within acceptable timespans. While she wouldn't be able to replicate this kind of speed exactly once she was back stuck on a gravity well she was pretty sure she'd still be faster than before, having had three months to train herself and having plenty of time to think of how to best adapt this kind of speed to planetside movements.

    She spent considerably more time with Serilda than with the rest of the crew for the duration of the trip, if only because Serilda was the only one who could safely come outside with her. She was pretty sure that for Luna it would have been a death sentence since she couldn't imagine fairies having anything that protected them against the various threats of space, and while Mythal might have been able to pull it off she considered it the smart decision on his part that he opted out of that. Even for Akeya herself it had been something of a bet whether it would actually work out, although a relatively safe one since the moment that she felt that it was going wrong she could have turned back into light and moved back into the ship.

    Of course communication outside of the ship was a bit of a tricky business. Even if both she and Serilda could survive just fine that didn't mean that there was magically an atmosphere which could carry the sound, so speech was right out unless they were in physical contact with each other and even then it was a very clumsy affair. For Akeya's part she decided to not waste any time trying to somehow communicate with sound despite the difficulties and instead resorted to morse code using sparks of light on her scales. While part of her appearance was her body automatically reflecting the vast void and the countless stars around it she could make her scales sparkle and dim according to her will, resulting in an elaborate rhythm of flickering lights. Which naturally required some effort and training before it could be used for real-time conversation.

    When they reached their destination, Constantine, Akeya didn't bother to get back inside the ship for the landing. Instead she plummeted down next to the shuttle, feeling gravity once more begin to dictate her movements and the atmosphere once more get in the way of her and freedom. Fortunately she'd learned enough from the experience that through shifting between light and dark she could reach a state where it didn't affect her as badly as it normally would, allowing her to avoid being burned to a crisp as she instead shot down like a comet of pure elemental power and land with relative safety. While she had to admit to being disappointed on the other hand she was still someone who took her job seriously. Three months of vacation was long enough, time to get to work.

    Given that they were here to make sure the scientists were safe the first task was to scout the area and see if there was anything of danger. The original scan, searching for beings of magical might, showed nothing which was a good start. While there might be creatures on this planet who were plenty powerful without possessing magic that at least meant one major source of trouble wasn't in the vicinity right now.

    The second step would be checking for any large creatures. Akeya frowned as she looked around. While there were plenty of creatures who were large and strong those usually at least partially relied on magic. If there were no creatures of substantial size that would remove another potential threat, as those could be powerful without needing any magic at all as their sheer mass allowed them to finish you off by stepping on you.

    As she was doing this scouting she noticed that Luna had left the shuttle and was doing... something. The dragoness tried to figure out what exactly was happening but couldn't place it at first. It was only when the fairy shouted something and all the plants first grew and then died that she realized that her companion had been trying to communicate with the plantlife and apparently hadn't gotten the response she'd been hoping for.

    Looking back at the scientists Akeya noticed that Serilda had begun helping them set up their equipment. It looked like the humans were eager to get started and she couldn't really blame them for that. Now that space was no longer distracting her she was also very interested in seeing what kind of strange and new sights this world had to offer. It was already clear that there were plants and critters made of similar materials as those on Earthland, but was that all? Would there be different creatures?

    She'd leave that to the scientists to figure out for now as she walked over to Luna to see what the problem was. With the second fairy arriving the dragoness stayed at a respectable distance and folded her arms, watching with one eyebrow raised as the newcomer introduced herself as some kind of royalty and explained that these plants felt off. "If the plantlife here has adapted to a different type of energy than what the plantlife on our planet uses the scientists will definitely be interested in that." Commenting on that Akeya glanced back at the scientists once more and indeed some of them did look very interested. Akeya had spent enough time on the shuttle to at least be somewhat aware of which of the humans had which field of expertise and, unsurprisingly, the biologists were taking an interest even if they were keeping their distance after all the plants had first blown up and then died off.

    The comment about humans being disgusting had Akeya raise her other eyebrow before stepping close enough that the fairy could hear her clearly without her having to raise her voice. While she didn't care if the humans were insulted she got the feeling that this fairy was talking to the expedition at large. Which included her. "It is a good thing that you specified that the humans are the issue. I don't think Luna would have appreciated if you ended up in pieces because you showed up and acted like you owned the place and could render judgement towards a dragon." She said this with a calm and neutral tone of voice, then just like Mythal she turned away without another word, although she returned to the group of scientists rather than moving away from them. "I'll be going scouting unless anyone has need of me. I'll be back in either an hour or when I find something that could be dangerous." Once the group of researchers had assured her that they thought the three other mages would be enough protection for now the dragoness spread her wings and jumped into the sky (she'd turned back into her humanoid form once she had safely hit the ground).

    Flying high up she could do a good job scouting for any obvious threats without having to move about. Once it was clear that there wasn't anything like a big monster wearing a sign saying 'I am going to eat you' she got down to the more thorough -and tedious- part of scouting. Covering large areas and putting every square meter of land under careful scrutiny.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    To no one’s surprise, Luna was the first one off the ship. The woman ran frantically into the open without putting on a suit first, jumping out the moment the door was open. Serilda’s eyes went wide with concern as Luna ran past her, afraid for the possibility that she was rushing into a world without breathable air. “Luna..!” she said, trying to run after the woman.

    By the time she got closer to her, things seemed okay. Just being around vegetation had clearly cheered her up immediately, which Serilda was glad to see. The fairy had spent the whole trip on the verge of losing her mind due to being cut off from nature. Serilda and Mythal had done their best to make sure she stayed as sane as possible by keeping her company and making sure she was eating, but nothing could substitute very long for what Luna truly needed.

    It was only for a couple minutes that Serilda had chosen to let Luna be and give her the time to recollect herself when things escalated again. She was helping the scientists get their things pulled out and set up when Luna screamed. The noblewoman turned just in time to see the plants go crazy, growing at an exponential rate before their very eyes before dying just as quickly. Serilda swore under her breath and ran back over to the woman as Luna vomited onto the ground, kneeling beside her and trying to hold her hair out of the way.

    She was listening to what the woman was saying about the planet being corrupted or dark when a drop of something fell from Luna’s arm and blossomed into a large flower, from which a fairy stepped out. It would have been concerning if Serilda hadn’t seen beforehand that it was clearly one of Luna’s summons. The being introduced herself as Tierra, a noble being among the fairies, and explained a bit about what Luna had just experienced. Serilda was churning the information in her head as she offered Luna a handkerchief to wipe her face, but her train of thought was momentarily derailed when the creature decided to insult her race without provocation.

    Serilda raised a brow slowly at the figure, the look on her face very much the calm and calculating ire of practiced nobility. She didn’t have to say much, thankfully. Mythal and Akeya both stepped in almost immediately and made their thoughts clear on the woman’s attitude, if from different perspectives. Mythal just didn’t like anyone that came off as a snob, not that he was exactly the most friendly person to begin with, and Akeya made it clear that should the insults start to bleed away from humans and toward dragons there was going to be trouble. Serilda simply spent the time ignoring the fairy for the moment so she could gently help Luna clean herself off, offering her water from a bottle to wash her mouth out.

    Mythal walked off to go inspect something a bit of ways off, which didn’t surprise the Voidwalker. He wasn’t one for getting into arguments, preferring to just flat out ignore people that annoyed him more than anything else. Akeya announced that she was going to go scout, to which Serilda nodded her acknowledgement. “Stay safe. Let us know what you find, or if you need anything. We’ll be here.” She knew the dragoness was more than capable of handling herself, so she wasn’t worried about Akeya going off on her own on a strange planet.

    It was only once Luna seemed to be well enough that Serilda would even deign to acknowledge the fairy princess. Normally she would have responded in manners expected from one noble to another, but at the moment she didn’t particularly care to make the effort. Her companion's health was more important. “Drink the water,” she said softly to Luna, still kneeling beside her. “You need to stay hydrated. Try to breathe. In through your nose, out through your mouth.”

    Without looking at the princess, she calmly told her, “If you were looking to maintain some semblance of credibility, I suggest you not open with insults toward those you’re trying to make your point to. It tends to make people not want to listen to you, particularly when we so called ‘disgusting’ humans have been the ones taking care of Luna for the past several months while she’s been struggling outside of her element. I’m sure she would have much preferred your concern toward her duress a fair bit sooner than today.”

    Tierra may not have been impressed by the situation, but Serilda was equally as unimpressed by the fairy only showing up just now when Luna could have probably used her help weeks, if not months, before this. Despite her words, Serilda’s tone wasn’t really being snippy with the fairy princess so much as speaking matter of factly; perhaps with a very slight air of patronization. She wasn’t going to tell the princess off, as it would be rude and insensitive to Luna to do so, but she also wasn’t going to just let a complete stranger boss her around and act like she was better than everyone else here.

    “Now, are you able to tell me anymore about this darkness you’re sensing in the plantlife? Maybe a source, or whether or not that darkness is natural here or if it’s a taint?” The question was posed to both fairies with a calm, pragmatic tone. If there was something wrong with the nature here, they would need to be aware of it for their own protection. It was entirely possible that whatever corruption they were sensing was hostile to them as outsiders, but perfectly natural for the planet itself. Either way, darkness was something that both Akeya and Mythal were masters of, so if Luna and Tierra weren’t able to provide any kind of details Serilda was sure that either the dragoness or the darkness king would be able to ferret a few things out.

    Tierra expected the backlash, but not the gross level misunderstandings on all parts. She let the dark slayers say their piece, in her eyes there was no point in trying to stop either, and her abilities do not work on dragons. Chasing after them would be a fools errand, especially when she was the one with the worst chances surviving on this planet. However, Tierra knew that her best chance to explain anything was with Serilda. Luna was still shaking, but when she was given water she water she quickly drank half the bottle at least before she sat up onto her knees, still trembling.

    Tierra's first priority was Luna's health, she knelled down beside the girl and slid her and throw one of the sides of Luna's Qipao, to her back for a few moments. Luna couldn't even bring herself to flinch at the moment as she was sorting out her thoughts, trying to mentally reboot herself. "Your gold heart is fine. Lucky too, it seems to be filtering out the toxins a fair bit. Probably why you were rejected so harshly." Pulling out her hand, she proceeded to reach down Luna's back, checking out various points spiritual points on a fairies body. "Oh dear, it really has been 3 months... I thought I was counting wrong. It's a miracle you held up this well after this." Luna's breathing slowly calmed down, back to normal. Although it felt as though she was still looking a million miles into the distance.

    Tierra sighed, resisting the urge to lash out at every single human here, but she knew it wasn't their fault. "Luna is fine, psychologically damaged and possibly traumatized for three lifetimes, but since this should have killed any other Nature Fairy, it's hard to tell. I wanted to come sooner, but sadly, I couldn't force a Gate root on that tin can of yours since there isn't enough ambient life force to create a gate twig. Three months ago, the green wolf, he was filling in for the guy who should have stopped Lunaris from ever stepping foot in that thing, but he did not know better, not his fault since the guardsman was drunk as hell. I was babysitting my father at the time."

    Tierra sighed. She grabbed a dead blade of grass and looked into it very carefully, trying to determine if she was in fact correct. The humans on a research mission to this planet could turn into a deadly situation if she was wrong. "This planet, all of you should have stayed away from here. This planet sees little light, so it has adapted accordingly, either generating its own, or surviving in the dark and adapted as such. Every planet has their own ambient energy, your home world is a neutral class given it's mix, most worlds are similar with a slight deviation one way, but here is more then slight. The world has adapted itself for pure darkness, there is no corruption or taint as dark is the norm here, reflected in the plants and small critters that essentially started bullying Luna. As such, this planet is a paradise to a dark attributed slayer as they can consume nearly anything here. Your friends might even blend in if they're lucky."

    Tierra looked around, still unconvinced she was aware of all there was to this world. She had an ominous feeling, there was something that she could not sense. "However, when I said you humans are not welcome here, that was just me forwarding the planets message. All the creatures and plant life here are small, which is odd. I can't sense anything immediately big, perhaps nocturnal predators... Species of your size and caliber might upset natural routines if we're unlucky. But if the prey is small, i think they're supposed to be small for best chance of survival."

    Luna stopped shaking, finally able to calm down enough to focus as she recalled most of what was said. "So what you're telling us is, we're upsetting the food chain?" Tierra nodded before she looked Luna in the eyes. It was clear to her Luna was trying to push her feelings deep down as she tried to stand but started to wobble, Tierra caught the nature fairy and slowly sat her back down.r "Hun take it easy! Don't push yourself. You can't run into danger as you are now."

    Luna sighed, a tear rolling down her cheek as she clenched her knee. "Damn it, why am I so useless..." Tierra patted Luna on the back. "You're not useless, you're the only one that can revive these people if they foolishly run to their deaths. Also you are still in emotional aftershock. First up is sadness and self esteem apparently, basically you got a whole cluster of blocked feelings to go through. No one is holding anything against you. Hun, switch forms. I can't help you as quickly in this form."  

    Luna let out a breath as a pink magic circle appeared beneath her, her form covered in a pink light before shrinking down to her fairy form. Tierra slowly stood up and put Luna on her shoulder. "She'll be fine. Exposure to me and unfortunately the plants should keep her calm-ish. I'll keep them quiet at the least, but their presence is better then nothing. First priority should be to search for any obvious nests. I think we're in worse danger then you can imagine."

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    What actually was with people thinking they were better than anyone else?

    This nature princess, his name already having left his mind, had worded her warnings and opinions in such a fashion that truly anyone would have been offended. He could sense the uneasiness of the scientists now; a palpable disgust and annoyance at having this spirit appear and essentially chastise them and degrade them. But it seemed they were fine with the God Slayer and Akeya speaking their minds. But even then, the dragon woman seemed to shrug off the insult as it was only aimed towards humans and essentially looked down her nose at the idea that anyone could judge a dragon. Great; so now the spirit and the dragon were busy putting themselves up on a pedestal. His senses were sharp enough to pick up on the dire and dreadful warning to the fairy from the dragon before she stated she was leaving to do some scouting. Only a moment later was she soaring into the sky.

    Serilda tended to Luna, getting her some water and attempting to ease her pain, all while Tierra continued to hover there. He glanced over at Serilda and met her gaze long enough to give her a nod, letting her know he was there if she needed him for anything immediate. Then he tossed a look over at the scientists, still clamored together in a tightly knit pile of observation. “You came here to see the planet, right? Quite gawkin’,” Mythal threw at them, his words no more emotional than they had been for the fairy. It seemed his yell broke their focus and they all mumbled and swarmed, splitting into different parties to investigate around the immediate area.

    Several yards away, Mythal found the spot of origin for the dark point. Invisible to the naked eye, it rested on the top of a low hillside, practically near the center but not quite. He bent down to one knee and pressed his finger against it, the pad pressing into the soft soil. His magic connected to the lingering wisps within the point and strengthened it, adding its signature to his vast and slightly nauseating senses. Feeling darkness back on Earthland was… a bit like an itch one couldn’t quite scratch. One could be aware of it and know exactly where it was but it couldn’t be reached or removed from one’s awareness. It had bothered him at first but after his conditioning, it was something he could lock away and ignore in the back of his mind.

    Yet despite his words and agitation, he was concerned for Luna’s flight back to Earthland. Three months back home would do more damage to the nature fairy than had already been rendered. As his finger began to drift up from the ground, a thin line of darkness began to form between the dark point and the tip of the digit. Mythal actively forced the connection to keep and strengthen as he pulled away, straining slightly as the long dead connection began to flare back to life. A miniature twister of magic formed out of the skinny string, growing larger with every second. The God Slayer got to his feet slowly as he continued to pull and increase the strength of the spell, breathing heavily through his nose in loud huffs.

    Soon the portal was near his size and was calming, becoming a more malleable globe of black and purple magic. There was no window in its center but he had connected it to dark point just outside his own home. He held his focus for a few more moments to smooth out the wilder portion of the gateway before he relaxed his flow of magic, simply keeping the durability of the spell in his mind. He looked it over in awe, a bit amazed he had managed such a large portal on his first try. But the real question was… was it actually connected? Pulling two strings and wrapping together felt easy but it wasn’t just as easy as putting the frayed ends together and hoping it held. It required a solid knot and, while he was confident in his magic, he had never attempted such a feat before.

    There was really only one way to tell what would happen and that was to walk on through. Just made it to Constantine and now he was attempting to walk back into Earthland. But before he could even take a solid step towards it, his senses picked up on something else. Fluttering, strange movements in a vast darkness just below him. His head cocked slightly to the side as he looked down at the soil, half-expecting to see something crawling out from the dirt. But no, whatever he was feeling, it was way below the crust in which he stood upon. In the caverns below him, he could feel thousands –no, millions – of critters moving about. As his senses came more and more aware of them, they expanded further and found even more of the frantic, sharp movements.  The scraping of claws on stone, the gnashing of sharp teeth; he could feel every tiny sensation.

    A swarm. A murder of creatures that felt soaked in the planet’s darkness. His focus on his spell wavered and the portal lost its shape, shrinking quickly to the size of a sport ball. Now more worried about accidentally transporting alien creatures home, Mythal completely cut off the connection and evaporated the portal in a release of black smoke. “What the hell…?” He muttered to himself. He bent down once more and touched the surface, laying his entire hand on the dirt and pressing against it. He reached deep, scouring the ground beneath. Were these creatures subterranean? Or were they keeping to the caverns below for a reason? His answer came in the form of a break in the darkness some miles away, at the mouth of a cave. None of the creatures were near the entryway from the feel of them, but it wouldn’t take them long to get to it if they needed to.

    Maybe they weren’t aware of the expedition’s arrival. He pulled his hand back up and disconnected his senses, almost wary that his spectral exploration would be picked up by the creatures. He backpedaled slowly before turning and walking back to the camp, noticing that most of the scientists had spread out and gone their own ways. He walked right to Serilda, just as the fairy was finishing up her thought. “I think she’s right,” Mythal added into the conversation, looking between the three. “I don’t know what they are but there’s… a lot of things beneath the ground. Hidin’ in caves. I can sense them movin’ about and I think they have a way out too. It’s a few miles away but…” His voice was even but dead serious. “If they get out, there’s no tellin’ what they’ll do. But I got a gut feelin’ it ain’t good for us.”
