    Shiva spent a decent amount of time hanging around ports, mostly because of their proximity to the ocean. It was most comfortable for her, after all. Even though the cities built on the coast lines weren't necessarily the biggest or most luxurious, many still had a fair population. Lavanitir Port City was a surprisingly neutral trading place, where individuals of all backgrounds could venture to make a profit. Its apparently unjudgmental nature failed to put Shiva at ease. Somehow, the locations heralded as the most welcoming could be the very opposite. Still, Shiva had come ashore to look around and perhaps acquire any goods that piqued her interest. The cruise here on the back of Aegir had been peaceful, and she had enjoyed the ride up until dozens of sea marks had materialized into her field of view. Beacons, buoys, and other anchored objects intended to help with navigation; in the end, all they did was prevent those who should be lost from meeting their fate. Furthermore, the safety they provided was miniscule in the grand scheme of things.

    Shiva turned her thoughts away from her irritation. Hopefully, Lavanitir would have objects of interest for sale. Lately, she had been lured in by specific magical items. With this city so close to the ocean, undoubtedly some artifacts had been acquired by divers or scavengers from wreckages. She pulled her hat further down, the brim covering her eyes, as she glanced around the streets. Nearby, a man was shouting about sausage links, a vendor advertised their scabbards and knapsacks, and a tall mage was casting magic on an unsuspecting passerby. The spell's intention was obvious and not at all benevolent. Unamused, Shiva turned away as the target of the magic found themselves sprawled on the cobblestones, their ankle twisted. In a fluid motion, the mage snatched up their target's purse and then slipped into the crowd.

    Glancing around, she made her way over to a stall where a man seemed to be selling wallets. The entire booth smelled of fish, but she didn't mind that itself. Rather, the implication that a great number of sea dwellers died for his ugly handbags irked her. Wait- handbags? Her eyes glinted as another visitor to the man's stall picked up a wallet and rubbed it for a moment, then marveled at its transformation. Hm. Shiva was not nearly as impressed. Just as she was about to move on, she registered a few words in the spew that had been flowing nonstop from the vendor's mouth. (Originally, she had tuned out the man due to his incessant prattling.) "... the palm tree shaped rock..." that was a place she knew. Or more precisely, she had just seen it a few hours ago on her way to Lavanitir. A strange rock jutting out of the ocean bed, its various points and the long, skinny section closest to the water was distinctively reminiscent of a palm tree, especially when one grew closer. Leaning towards the man slightly, Shiva spoke up. "What was near that rock?" Without skipping a beat, he turned to her, waving her in on the conversation. Immediately blabbering on about some kind of mermaid and how he simply needed to find her again, Shiva's forehead wrinkled in half confusion, half disgust. Summoning all of her patience, she made mental notes of his specified route as he rattled off the path once more, then again, and then again. Truly, the man was obsessed- but considering his state of mind and his countenance, it was likely that. Just an obsession.

    Shiva was already facing towards the next stall when his voice cried out behind her, "Everything I have! I swear on all the cash in my wallet! She's out there! Please help me find her!" Did he say... all the cash in his wallet? Now they were talking. Shiva's eyes gleamed with distinct interest. How broke was he, again? This wallet handbag business of his seemed to be turning a pretty penny, but she had to confirm. Shamelessly, she asked, "How much is in your wallet, then?" Glancing around her, it seemed as though a few others wanted to know the same. She had no intention of sharing the rewards, but it wasn't like she could close their ears for them. "A hundred fifty thousand jewels! All yours, to the ones who can catch her!" That was a nice sum. Shiva wouldn't mind sharing, just a bit. As long as the other person had something useful to contribute.

    ✩ It had been a while since the celestial white witch traveled into the port city of Lavantir, but she distinctly remembered its distinct architecture from the dreamy haze of the days she spent under the control of the fairies- her memory of the city took the form of a fragile daydream of her floating down the streets in search of a certain magical fish of sorts, one that was golden and stolen from the possession of her captors. But now she was finally in control. Acting with the full extent of her free will, Waverly would steadily grip her ultraviolet black and golden broomstick that she was flying upon. She would use this day to relax and go shopping for some new accessories after completing a few simple quests in exchange for jewels, and the seaside burgh was the closest populated area near where she gave her aide. It had not been long since she had devoted her entire existence to who she deemed to be the one true God, Odhran Aegisbane, the celestial spirit god. The one which freed her from the soulless state that she was trapped in since she was a dumb little girl, it was to no surprise she fell in love with his divinity and ability to destroy the falina with his holy celestial ethereality. He was the one that she owed her very existence to at the moment and felt as though he deserved to be worshipped to the fullest extent... the witch would wipe away a single tear from her cheeks in joy as she would think about his feats in nostalgia, descending downward to land upon the market of the many vendors that lined the stone streets.

    A few other individuals that looked to resemble other mages in appearance would reside near the many booths of the seaside vendors, as they had eccentric quirks to their styles. Adjusting her gold and black witch hat to sit straight up as she would take a peek at what was being sold from afar, she would let out a small cough as she would raise up on her tip-toes to get a better look. Nothing seemed to be that interesting from her perspective- putting all of her weight onto the top of the broomstick, which would function as a cane to keep her from toppling over, she would slowly start to move down the street with gentle taps against the stone when suddenly she would hear the salesman begin to exclaim a story of a sea-creature that he was seeking out. A mermaid of sorts, or so the celestial witch had thought she had heard, she would turn around in her tracks to get a better listen.

    "Tch," the white-haired mage would sigh as she would look down at her feet as he would continue to ramble on about the mermaid. He allegedly would pay those who would be brave enough to venture out to sea a grand total of one hundred and fifty thousand jewels, which would cause her golden optics to sparkle in fascination. That was a lot of money- Waverly wanted it bad, as more money would mean more success in the eyes of her lord. At least, that is what she felt he would feel in terms of gathering personal funds. It would be a way to thrive and be useful to one's full extent. Reaching into her pockets of the golden cape that fluttered behind her, the witch would pull out a keyring of celestial summoning keys and twirl them around her free hand as she would near closer to the man. He appeared to have already been approached about the offer by another individual who had been within earshot, but that wouldn't stop her from offering her assistance; she was confident in her new magical abilities as a keyholder of mystic summoning catalysts, and the jewel reward would only make her want to get her hands on this mermaid even more.

    Creeping up beside the other being of white hair that had approached the man, the celestial witch would sigh as she would lean up on the edge of the counter, her golden eyes looking the girl up and down. "I want the jewels too," she would softly speak to the man that stood on the other side of the booth, her mouth remaining expressionless as she would continue to look at Shiva's every feature in detail from her shoes to her attire to her hat, "there's no way I wouldn't be able to get you that mermaid.. my god wouldn't let me fail on detaining something that easy."

    "Tch," she would appear to remark in an almost condescending manner as she would look away from the other mage, spinning her keyring around her fingers as she would take a deep breath. Working with someone else on this mission would not be something she would be the most excited about, but it would definitely make the time more interesting- from first glance Waverly certainly thought the girl's tastes would be similar to hers in terms of the way she would dress herself, but nobody would be able to amount to the badassery that was sewn into each stitch of her golden witch cloak and hat. It was her favorite outfit to wear out and about. "If we're going to working together, hm," she would roll her eyes as she would shift her weight from the countertop to her broomstick, which she would still use as a cane of sorts, "I'll fly us there, I suppose."

    Rotating the broomstick from vertical to horizontal, the witch of golden storms would slowly slump down onto its thin shaft of glistening gold and black colors- it would appear to hover a few feet off of the port city's stone surface, resonating with the delicate breeze that would drift in from the sea. Right next to the white-haired summoner would be a spot closer to the brush of the broom that would seem to be waiting for the other mage to climb on, all while Waverly would keep her balance sitting upon the levitating stick's edge.

    Nodding to herself as she finished considering the number of jewels the man had decreed he currently possessed, Shiva laughed outright as several more people crowded around him. So much for everyone thinking he was crazy. Money could buy credibility. Even if people didn't expect the mermaid to exist, they were willing to waste time and energy, potentially even their lives, just for some jewels. Shiva shrugged. She wasn't really any different than them, except, she had no intention of squandering away any of those things. This little search and retrieve excursion could be completed with ease. Just as she was about to drawl out that she could complete this task swiftly and without any pretense- mermaid for jewels, done and done- a strange looking young woman just a bit taller than herself sidled up to the merchant. Shiva scoffed as the newcomer tried to barge in on her dealings with the mermaid obsessed man.

    Even though she had internally entertained the thought of allowing on of the numerous bystanders to accompany her, she wasn't actually interested in that sort of arrangement. It would probably just be a hassle. "Your god, huh?" Shiva was momentarily distracted as the strange white haired witch looking idiot mentioned something about 'her god.' Laughing out loud, she rolled her shoulders back and then stepped away a few paces. Well, this girl could be her guest. Obviously she had some sort of charm that had convinced the hand bag seller. It was too late to try to change his mind; the better prospect would be somehow losing this young woman while retrieving the mermaid. If she just so happened to fall victim to a sea serpent or shark, that wouldn't be Shiva's problem. She would simply have to collect the whole sum of jewels on behalf of her lovely dead companion. Tragic.

    Judging by the strange noises this mage was making, Shiva assumed she had some sort of mental or physical problem. Perhaps when she was rolling her eyes in a dramatic way, she simply couldn't help herself. Shrugging, Shiva decided that it didn't really matter what this girl's issues were as long as they didn't hamper her ability to work and be useful. However, she couldn't help but eye the mage's key ring as it spun around and around and around on her fingers. That was a really bad nervous tic, or boredom fidgeting habit to have, whatever it was. Such a key ring could easily go flying off into a random direction due to momentum, should this strange mage suddenly stop moving. Whether she were forced to halt in their path or not, Shiva supposed it wouldn't end up good for this stranger if that were to occur. But honestly, she couldn't be bothered to say anything.

    "Pass," Shiva said flatly when the witchy girl offered (seemingly against her will, according to her body language and facial expressions) to give her a ride on her broom. There was absolutely no way she was getting on that twiggy bundle of sticks. Without her having to say a single word, a large killer whale arced towards the pair of them from where he had been waiting nearer to the water, and Shiva jumped up onto his back. Aegir would be able to carry her through the air fine enough. The mage and bond duo set off towards the first land mark the purse merchant had mentioned. It was a sunken ship wreckage with a great deal of famous treasures and belongings lost inside. Nearly a decade ago, a vessel carrying precious magical artifacts and chests filled with a variety of other valuables had been sunken by a sea monster there. The beast was still rumored to sulk around in the same place, so most people avoided it even if there was plenty of money to be made off of the underwater remains of the ship and its cargo.

    Personally, Shiva probably would have already tried to mess around with selling some of that stuff, but she had no interest in fighting or killing a sea serpent. Glancing over at her (temporary) job partner, she decided they might as well converse to make the trip a little more interesting. If she was as obnoxious in conversation with nobody else around as she had been back at the docks, then Shiva would back out of talking as quickly as she had initiated it. "Lemme see your keys," she smiled in a friendly way at the other mage. "I'm a summoner too, so out of interest, it'd be nice to get to know you better. What's your name?" Her tone was light but extremely blunt as she spelled out exactly what her apparent purpose was for talking to the stranger. Perhaps she ought to give the girl something to call her by as well. Considering it for a moment, she tacked on, "I'm Shiva." Flying over the ocean was so beautiful; truly, she enjoyed this type of traveling, especially when it was purposeful. "By the way, what's your, uh," she snickered slightly, "Your god that you kept referencing back there?" Maybe she could get some more amusement out of this interaction as well. Depending what type of a devout worshipper the stranger was, as well, Shiva might be able to convince them to visit her lands to establish a seat of power there. Like a temple or something similar.

    Bobbing up and down upon her broomstick of glowing black and gold accents, Waverly would maintain a rather disgusted look on her face as she would look down at the girl, sighing as the stranger would express her want to head to their destination her own way. She had taken this as a bit of a jab toward a generous offer, but she would act like she didn't mind- it would only mean she would be able to go even faster upon the sunny horizon, able to sit as comfortably as ever upon her personal magical bundle of sticks without a care in the world. It was to no surprise that the celestial white witch would feel confident in her own abilities, and did not even feel as though having another person come alongside her to hunt this mermaid would be entirely necessary- it would have been rude to not work with the person that expressed fascination moments before she did, even though she was beginning to make her the tiniest bit unsatisfied. The religious girl liked things her way, which would indirectly be the way of her god. Continuing to swing the summoning keyring around her finger, a subtle "tch," would escape her lips as she would begin to hover a bit higher from the edge of the ground. Her gaze would soon become distracted by the emergence of a colossal killer whale from the surrounding port.. it was massive, and upon its breaching of the surface, she would witness the girl jump onto its body, taking off into the distance. Another sigh would escape Waverly's airways as she would begin to flutter across the skies to follow, clasping the ethereal catalyst of her magical power. The apparent ability to bond with even the larger marine creatures, her apparent magic would fascinate the witch as she would attempt to catch up to the girl, lowering to push into the skies over the body of water.. maybe she was a sea witch? At the end of the day, it didn't really matter. Waverly wanted to get that mermaid and get back to the altar with the offerings she would be receiving from this sudden quest as quick as she could, she couldn't have cared less about her temporary job partner-she was doing this for prosperity, which would come in one way or another.

    Hovering next to the girl in the air, Waverly would mindlessly follow her, adjusting her gaze in-between the expanse of ocean that would appear on the horizon and the killer whale- she would seem to clear her breath with a cough before speaking, beginning to laugh a bit herself afterward. "It's Way, you can call me that," the witch would speak out to the stranger, attempting to hold back a few soft giggles with a serious tone, "tch, you might think I'm dumb, but I'm not dumb enough to hand you my keys to satisfy your fascination- If you want to take a peek, I can show you from right here, by all means." Allowing a smirk to manifest across her cheeks as she would raise her keyring in front of her with one of her hands, the other holding onto the broomstick, her eyes would appear to glisten with the sunlight overhead as she would divert her attention briefly to the sparkly clinking her keys would begin to make. If Shiva would direct her gaze to the golden hoop that would retain her celestial keys and contracts, she would be able to notice cosmic symbols relating to the constellations of each different being- there were about a dozen contracts that the witch had been able to form ever since the day she had been saved, though one key would seem to stand out above the rest, being a brighter gold in comparison to the others. Upon the top of the key would be a zodiac-themed zig-zag design in a bright white color, formed with a structure of the key similar to fluffy clouds. "You're a summoner, too? Well, do any of these keys stand out to you?" she would slyly smile as the various keys would chime against each other, her eyes looking toward the surface of the planet under her as she would continue to fly steadily, "I'm sure if you're a strong summoner like I am, one will stand out to you above the rest, Shiva."

    Perhaps the confident verbiage of the white witch would come off as a bit conceited, but it did slightly stem from her insecurity of appearing as weak- she did not want to seem like how she did back when she didn't have her soul, floating around without a serious thought in her brain. Waverly wanted to be able to harness the celestial magic to the extent that she witnessed her god free her from the dark shackles of the fairies, she wanted to take on the identity of someone that one would not believe would have such inexperience to taking on responsibility. It was all very hard for her to handle and take in, but she would not allow her anxieties relating to her new role in the world to creep in that far- just the thought of the celestial spirit god's pride in her aspirations would make her feel comforted, almost as if he was holding her hand with every new contract she would acquire. It felt amazing to finally be freed from the bondage of evil, free to attain boundless power as freely as she would desire. Waverly felt as though she owed everything to her god for his selflessness- even if his selfless acts were fueled by other motives, she wouldn't care. He saved her, and she owed it to him to take on her magical potential, so she wouldn't be able to fall into the darkness like she did last time. Even if she was still getting used to it, the white witch finally held her life in her own hands.. and it felt utterly amazing, even if her legs didn't want to keep carrying on.

    "My god, you ask," ✩" she would smile as her eyes would seem to drift off into the passing mirage upon the horizon of the ocean, pulling her keys back near to her heart as she would seem to feel an emotion of comfort, "the Celestial Spirit God- you must have heard of him, yes? Ah, he's so brilliant." A soft pale blush would begin to form on her cheeks as she would look toward where the tip of her broom would bring her, following the direction that the other mage would take across the ocean's mirage.. she would seem to go silent, almost as if she was flustered by the warmth she would feel in her heart from talking about Odhran. The love the witch had for her god was something that was unlike no other- it was fueled by her entire existence, she felt as though her sole purpose was to live a life within his shadow. Wavering across the skies on her bundle of black and gold magical sticks, the oversized white-witch hat that sat upon her head would seem to wave in the direction of the wind. Paying attention to the direction Shiva would lead them, she would zone into her own thoughts. The wish to one day sit on a throne alongside her god, labeled to be his most devoted follower... it was Waverly's dream, something that she would wish to attain one day. It would take a lot of work, but the magic she felt coarse through her veins made her feel like she was getting closer and closer to achieving that goal, even if she really wasn't. The sensation of utilizing the ethereality of her savior felt unlike anything she ever felt before, even after she was granted the ability to use the magic of the fairies before her liberation, it made her feel like a celestial angel, fluttering around her god's holy throne.

    Post by Ran 1st August 2021, 3:16 pm

    Hm. Way it was then. Holding back her derision, Shiva took it in stride as much as she could when the witchy girl began to softly giggle. Not witchy girl. 'Way.' It was interesting that Way had made the logical leap from Shiva simply asking to see her keys to Shiva thinking she was a dumb witch. Well, that statement wasn't necessarily untrue. Admittedly, she had a rather low opinion of Way as of right now, but no accounting for taste. She had been wrong before. Anyway, to Shiva, satisfying her fascinations and her compulsive whims was one of her primary motivators most of the time. That and her actual work. Her self restraint was surprisingly great in most instances, meaning that even if she found herself highly amused by a situation she wouldn't necessarily continue to pursue involvement in it. Shiva would let her gaze follow the movement of Way's hands as they deftly handled the key ring and broomstick in tandem.

    "I mean. You say it's dumb, but you wanna see mine? Catch." If Way didn't manage to catch the ring of a couple keys in time, then they would probably fall into the ocean. Shiva could retrieve them later. While Shiva wasn't really concerned with strength, she just got the sensation that this girl was rather weak. That, or extremely lacking in confidence. Sure it was judgmental of her to make that assumption just because she wouldn't hand over her keys and she worshipped some random dude as a god. But Shiva had always been a rather judgmental person, after all. Either way, so much for her words. 'Strong summoner.' She certainly could see that one of the keys flashed gold as they clinked against each other. A zodiac, she guessed. If Way had managed to snag her own couple keys, she would see that there weren't very many. Four, really. One belonged to Gemini, and the rest were high ranking summons. Not that it was easy or even apparent in any way what strength of spirits lay behind the tarnished metal of their representative key. After all, Shiva knew better than most people how a summoned spirit was only as great as their master's power. She would love to see Way try to use her keys. Really. If Way made any move related to channeling power through them, her eyes would just about light up in excitement. So interesting. Or maybe boring, if she was just another coward. It was what it was.

    "Nice Aquarius key. I wonder if I killed you, would she answer to me? Aquarius has always been picky," Shiva shrugged her shoulders casually as her fingers pet Aegir's back fin. Just making conversation. Silence was boring. Over the past few years, Shiva had become accustomed to silence and found comfort in its purity. She still thought talking was almost always more fun, though, as long as the conversation didn't call for a bunch of posturing and great shows of strength. Genuinely, she rather wanted Way's take on the situation. Did the little idiot think that she would stay loyal, when spirits were so fickle? Perhaps Aquarius would, but it was a huge toss up. Shiva had no use for power and no real intention of picking a fight, but she liked to entertain the idea to pass the time. When she truly wanted to kill someone, it would be a quick assault under the cover of the dark. In and out. Anyway, it seemed like this dizzy Way girl was off in her own little land talking about that god of hers again. The 'Celestial Spirit God,' now that was a name she had heard before. One of the keys on the ring that could be sitting at the bottom of the ocean right now or in Way's hands, or wherever, had a key that matched one of that supposed god's. "Ah yeah, that guy? Odhran, I think his name was...? I might've killed his friend, not sure," Shiva mused out loud, trying to recall a bit more exactly what had happened. Way seemed entranced in her own recollection, so somehow Shiva doubted that she was paying much attention. It was just how humans tended to be. Rather selfish and self-centered, especially when it came to matters of the heart. Even sacrificial actions had inner motives. Martyrs were guilt trippers. All of that. Shiva was no exception, but somehow she still found the absolute lack of remorse in finding herself above it all.

    "Lover, maybe?" Simply going off of the fact that the spirit Shiva had talked to had told her she belonged to a matching pair, lovers was possible as well. Former lovers, excuse her. Even if Way was the new prospective um, side piece, Shiva thought it was possible the petite mage whose magic she had found intriguing was the earlier version. Hm, maybe it was best not to mention anything about that dude around Way. She seemed a little unhinged when he was the subject topic. Not that Shiva was judging about the state of her sanity. Well, she certain was, but she wouldn't necessarily admit it any time soon. Either way. Definitely had heard of that Odhran guy. Her thoughts cleared slightly as they neared the sea landmark that had been their first goal for following the map the merchant from earlier had painted a picture of so generously for them. Oh, a sea monster! Shiva could just barely see its coils wrapping around the oddly shaped rock that Aegir was almost about to fly over. They could honestly just leave the serpent alone, but Shiva felt like pointing it out to Way just for posterity. Serpents were pretty cool, after all. But in the end, she didn't say anything, still letting their conversation continue from earlier. If Way decided to shut up and be boring, she wouldn't complain out loud. As she had observed before, it seemed like little witchy Way had some personal problems, especially with admiring some random person as a god. Shiva could be called stupid in the same way for having her own little mini religion set up in a similar tone. But the difference between the two of them as of right now was that Shiva blatantly would say she didn't give a flying fish about whatever happened to her deity. He could go die in an underwater trench, for all she cared. The godly carcass would probably feed the worms and marine life in a better way than he ever had.

    Smiling rather intently at the thought of the attainment of her celestials and the freedom she was granted by her god, the girl which floated upon her broomstick would continue to follow the flying orca's direction whilst holding her keyring to catch Shiva's gaze. While it was true that the zodiac key that sat within her collection brought a reaction that she was going for from the other mage, it would seem as if the fellow white-haired girl would feel differently about the lengths she could go to consider her keys secured within her midst- Waverly would let out a gasp as Shiva would seem to throw her keys at her to take a look, quickly descending downwards to snag the keys out of the air to prevent them from falling into the water. "Tch," she would exclaim once more almost as if she was disgusted in the fellow mage's carelessness, raising the much smaller keyring up to her eyes to take a look at just what the fellow celestial summoner had brought with her on this seaside adventure; just like her, one seemed to stand out a bit amongst the rest of her collection, though it was much smaller in comparison to her own. It had to be another one of the zodiac keys that had manifested within the anything-but-mundane world from the celestial realm upon the other three keys, a rarity almost unlike any other. Fiddling the key of Aquarius within her stark, slender fingers to sit next to the other zodiac key that remained within her other hand, she would marvel at the recognizable symbols of the constellations that marked both of the two, alongside a similar golden color strung throughout the stellar makeup of ethereality.

    "I could ask the same about this Gemini of yours, Shiva- I don't know much about this particular zodiac celestial, but I do know that the ownership of such power is commendable, so congratulations on getting your hands on such a rarity," the summoner would speak to the girl upon the orca in a rather deadpan voice, her golden optics fluttering within the wind as they would shoot across the skies over the seas, "Aquarius has quite the criteria to meet when it comes to establishing a contract with her, so I doubt she would even give you the chance to ask for such an alliance, even if I were to bleed out right here, right now. I'd call her selective rather than picky- she doesn't just pick anyone to be her commandress, hence why her key was said to have vanished from the vision of mankind for many years prior to my findings." Despite being fairly new to utilizing her inner ethernano to summon beings from the celestial plane, the celestial white witch's knowledge of their existence had blossomed tremendously ever since she had been freed from the shackles of the fairies. Having spent most of her free time researching the arts of celestial summoning throughout history from various thick, dated books from ancient libraries within the modern civilization, she considered herself quite the expert when it came to these otherworldly beings, even if it was just a facade to bring upon false confidence- in reality, Waverly only had a basic understanding of celestials deemed to be notable and well-accessible, alongside the zodiacs and a few unknown entities here and there, as it was fairly difficult for her to retain every detail from old works of literature. The white storm cloud Aquarius was the one she knew about the most, which made sense, considering she was one of the first contracts she had been able to attain after the events led on by Odhran's organic selflessness- a zodiac with the wish to protect and bring upon aide to those brought to their knees by evil, so one day their wounds will be able to gloss over and bring on a new, prosperous life. This wish of selflessness would be able to be granted by serving under the command of the witch, as her wounds from the ancient civilization of fairies ran deep, even if forming a contract would result in acting out the unspeakable in the name of a dark, corrupt celestial god. Unlike most other celestial summoners that roamed the world wishing to add the zodiacs to their sparkly collections, Waverly met the rough criteria that would deem her to be worthy enough to bring Aquarius with her on her every adventure- the inability to walk without the need of a cane, led on by the partial paralyzation of both of her legs, which were only getting worse. If Shiva were to inquire about this trivial criterion of the celestial, the witch would keep her mouth shut, unwilling to share her secrets.

    Fluttering upon the wind to get closer to the girl of the sea, Waverly would delicately attempt to toss the keyring that belonged to the other mage back into her grasp, which would land into her lap if everything played out like the witch wished it would. Despite her lack of utter expertise on celestials, a common theme that stood out to her within those dusty books would be the loss of keys due to the feeling of invincibility and lack of care- though she was off the deep end when it came to some of her ideals, she was more than aware of the risk of wielding magic in the form of physical items rather than directly through one's ethernano, alongside the risk to existing in the magical world as a whole. She knew she was not invincible unlike most of the other teenagers of Earthland- though, upon hearing the wondrous name of Odhran escape from Shiva's lips, the feeling of warmth that she would equate with this sensation of false immortality would creep into her heart and soul, or at least what she envisioned it feeling like. "Yes, Odhran Aegisbane, the god of the celestial spirit realm- it's no coincidence you've heard of him, let alone know his name," Waverly would speak less deadpan this time, almost as if her eyes were ridden in a state of awe. However, this would change into a bit of a strange curiosity strung throughout with anger when she would speak of potentially having killed one of his acquaintances, which would be difficult to be picked up under a still face; she could not believe that the god that had "selflessly" freed her of her captivity within the realm of the fairies would allow one of his friends to fall into the endless slumber of death within the hands of a mere mortal mage like this one. It was not difficult for her to dismiss this stranger's confident words about her god and his acquaintances as lies, even if they just so happened to be true. However, even though she worshipped Odhran with her all, the image of the celestial spirit god would be extremely different within her mind than it would be within reality. But she'd never see past the glory she felt that day. He changed everything for the better, just as a selfless, brilliant god would for those that needed it. "Tch," she would directly yet indirectly state her disbelief in Shiva's words with her tick, sighting the sea monster that would make an appearance upon the horizon.

    Flying a bit ahead to check out the coiling sea serpent, which would wrap around the strange-looking rock that was briefly mentioned prior to the embarkment of the two upon the sea, it would become apparent that the beast of the sea would sight the celestial summoner upon her glistening black and golden broomstick nearing closer and closer whilst remaining well elevated within the skies. Letting out an ear-splitting roar, the creature would swing its extremely elongated body from the depths of the water toward Waverly with brute force, which would strike the bottom of her flying broomstick hard. So hard that it would snap into two, then twenty, causing her to freefall toward the water with great speed- shattered into a couple of dozen fragments of lustrous magical sparkles, the broomstick would fall around her as she would close her eyes and hold the zodiac key within her hands, causing it to glow a faint white and yellow color as she would begin to channel her magical power. "Open, the gate of the white stormcloud- Aquarius," she would exclaim rather quickly yet softly whilst plummeting toward the surface of the water, the sea serpent's body preparing to entrap the girl if she were to become submerged, "show yourself." Manifesting outward within a giant burst of white light and fluffy clouds, the zodiac celestial Aquarius would float downward upon an array of celestial magic and similar clouds- forming a levitating couch a few feet under the freefalling witch, she would sink into the soft manifestations of the sky rather than breaching the surface of the water, which the summon would pull upwards into the sky to reach a similar elevation that Waverly was at prior.

    "Risky business, Way!" the zodiac celestial would brightly exclaim as she would look downward at the stranger that rode upon the flying killer whale, "oh, hi! I'm Aquarius, nice to meet'cha!" While the sweet nun of a celestial would speak to the stranger, the witch would sit still upon the floating couch, her gaze not moving off of the sea serpent that began to coil around the rock once more- it did not seem to wish to strike the floating girls upon their soft couch of clouds just yet, having used quite some energy to have struck the broomstick so high within the sky. However, this would most likely be the first of many targets that the two would have to eliminate within their search for this "mermaid"- while Aquarius was the most supportive of Waverly's celestials, if it were to attack them again, it would not be long until a second celestial would make an appearance to slay the beast in the shadow of the floating white-haired duo. The damage the broomstick had taken from the attack had rendered it irreparable- its small fragments of dyed, magical wood would float on the surface of the water, never to ascend into the skies again. It looked like the floating couch and a cane would be her means of transportation for the foreseeable future, something that would only be a minor inconvenience, but still quite annoying.

    Whether or not Way wanted to call it picky or selective, it didn't change the fact that Aquarius was a strange spirit. In all honesty Shiva thought that Way had an enormous ego to think that the spirit wouldn't give her a chance of an alliance. Most keys melded somewhat to the wishes of their master, even if others had a will strong enough to decide not to pursue a relationship with a summoner. Even if at the current moment in time, Way's strange nature and dumb attitude had led Aquarius to act one way or another, that was subject to change. What she was saying now about Aquarius having vanished for a while... maybe that was true, but more likely, it wasn't. It sounded like total bullshit to Shiva, but she held in her laughter for now. Sure, all summons had their own criteria and whatnot. But they probably weren't as impressed by Way as the little witch thought. Shiva couldn't be bothered to care much more about her affairs, already bored of the conversation. Way hadn't risen to her unspoken challenge to do something more than just take a quick peek at her keys. Currently, the witchy girl was just acting like a normal human being.

    A movement caught her eye, and Shiva blinked lazily as her keys fell back onto her lap. Nice toss. So she had given them right back, huh? Shrugging to herself, Shiva's hands absentmindedly stroked Aegir as they continued to chat. This girl was really obsessed with Odhran Aegisbane, apparently. Seemed like she gave absolutely no shits about the mage Shiva had killed off a bit ago. Of course she could be faking a reaction, but Shiva chose to take it at face value. Going off of that, she would assume in the future that Way didn't care for Odhran on an emotional level, such as thinking about what the man (because he was a man, really) would want in the end. Perhaps it wasn't fair to say she didn't care about his emotions. Obviously Way was entranced by him in general. But Shiva had a feeling it was a different dynamic than something actually romantic and personal between them. Just admiration and one sided attraction lacking in depth, maybe. Oh well, there wasn't much to be gotten out of getting too invested in this witchy girl. She seemed like the type to die in a few years, so to Shiva, the most she could feel for her would be a bit of disgust, doubt, and possibly pity.

    Finally nearing the same serpent she had spotted earlier in literally the same timeline (love it when the dimensions are constantly being rewound in order to add on things), Shiva stared at it blankly. She truly loved serpents. As for this one, it was no exception. There was something beautiful and pure about the way it curled around the rock, oblivious to the outside world. Way appeared to antagonize it in some way or another, seeing as the serpent attacked with a sweeping movement of its serpentine form. Shiva coughed in laughter as the witch's broom was demolished into splinters. Weirdo. But she probably had a reason for not dodging, that or she was just that bad at fighting. She couldn't completely judge the other girl, especially because she appeared to have several mental problems and or emotional issues. However, it was still funny to her how summoning Aquarius was the fall back on it plan. Gate of the white stormcloud... looked like for now, the picky spirit was a weather related entity. The zodiacs could take on multiple different varieties of magic, and one could never be sure what was in store when a zodiac stepped onto the battlefield. Anyway, this seemed like a confirmation that Way either used the serpent's attack as an excuse to strike back out of a desire to fight, or that had no actual reason for taking the blow except idiocy.

    Aquarius was rather homely in appearance. Wrinkling her nose in confusion, Shiva shrugged her shoulders at the nun-like outfit. Her chirpy voice did nothing to sedate Shiva's swiftly rising irritation at the strange get up. Sure, she had also dressed this way in the past and might continue to do so in the future when necessary. But as judgmental as she could tend to be, Shiva found it hilarious that for an avid worshipper of the celestial spirit god, Way's summon looked incredibly non secular but just in a manner belonging to the common religion. "Don't litter its environment," Shiva eyed the splinters of wood scattered on the ocean. After all, this was the sea serpent's home or at least domain long before they had come by here. In Shiva's opinion, she had no idea what was in the strange broomstick, but it looked like wood. There was no telling what effects it might have on the marine habitat here, so she extended her fingers towards the water, curling them up as the wood lifted away from the sea. Mastery over wood was quite handy at times, especially for cleaning up others' trash when they couldn't be bothered to do more than just stare at it blankly. Glancing at Way, Shiva continued to ignore Aquarius' greeting or acknowledge her introduction. She gestured to the newly repaired broom; whether or not its magic worked like it used to she had no idea, but Way could figure that out herself. For now, it would hang suspended in the air by a large wave that was erected by Shiva. "Let's move on, unless you want to enjoy yourself some carnage," she drawled. If the witch wanted to stay behind and fight the serpent, then she would be interested in seeing what happened next. Perhaps intervening. Oh, she would love an excuse to do that. Otherwise, it would be preferred for their now group to move along without much delay.
