✧ Allowing for the brilliant, long strands of her hair to flutter behind her as she would fly across the skies of Fiore, the guildmistress of Luminous Rose found herself bound for the Mysterious Canyon, the home of a dragon said to mimic the heavenly creatures of the crystalline realm. A mythical beast of a lustrous golden color, it would be described upon the higher-ranked job boards to harness the elemental knowledge of steels and metals, able to cut just like an obsidian scalpel. This would not be the first time that Diamandis had challenged a dragon, and though it had been years since she faced one outside of the crystalline realm, she could never forget taking on two twin dragons with a Wizard Saint so many years ago in Crocus. It was a shame that the friendship that she had made on that day was cut short by her old friend's disappearance into the unknown, but she was slowly getting over things from so long ago like that. Having been through so many events one would deem as tragic throughout her life, such as being kidnapped by dark mages and facing the torment of her father, it was hard for Diamandis to not become nostalgic for the good times she spent with good people in this world, even if some of them were off in other worlds. The wholesome and prosperous life she once left behind to wage the war in the crystal realm was beginning to flourish just as it did back then. It made the crystalline girl feel exactly where she felt she belonged, even if she hadn't anticipated her return to Earthland. The universe is always bound to throw curveballs at one's reality, prompting change- it felt to the girl like this ideology was true more and more each day she spent back in Fiore, but finally, these changes felt a little bit better than they used to.
However, sometimes changes within the folds of reality brought upon things that some people deem to be unfortunate, an ideal Diamandis is quite familiar with as well. Upon the horizon would emerge a heat-wave, affecting nearly all of Fiore and some of its surrounding nations- it was extremely warm outside to the point where wearing anything other than light clothes would not be a choice unless one was trying to die of a stroke! Some near record-breaking temperatures, it was clear that the summer months were at their peak within nature at the moment, and the feeling of this would especially be true to the girl as she would quickly flutter through the clouds. The sun would beat down on her back, which would remain partially exposed within a silk set of clothing that would drape down various parts of her body, such as her arms and legs- the designs on the pink apparel would seem to be reminiscent to one of the desert villages that resided within the southern parts of Fiore, which was exactly where she bought them from. Small beads of sweat forming upon her forehead as she would near closer to her destination, Diamandis would quickly waver downwards followed by the companions that would accompany her on this trip for dragon scales. Even though it felt very hot, the beautifully designed fashion of the desert was enchanted to protect the wearer from getting burned up by the sun, often worn by traders and wanderers alike- she finally had a use for one of the old articles of clothing that she hadn't been able to use since a few years ago, which would make her smile under the silky pink sheet of fabric that would cover the canvas of her face below her optics. Despite the acquiring of as much as she could ever wish for, both in her queendom and pop stardom, she did not like when things of hers went to waste. Wearing an old piece of clothing felt special when going on a job like the one she had gone on so long ago in the Desert Village when wearing it prior, or at least it did to her!
Holding the notice of the quest up to catch her gaze while she would flutter throughout the clouds, the demon slayer would examine the depiction of what would be the entrance to the lair of the 'Gold Obsidian Dragon', a giant gaping hole surrounded by jagged golden fractals in a deep curve of the canyon. Shining upon the horizon would manifest the vision of just that- it would be a gaping hole in the side of the mountain that would look just like the drawing, and though it was quite deep into the range of rocky landforms, it wasn't that difficult to spot. Descending toward the expanse of flat rocks that would mark the landscape near the hole, upon a few falling rose petals and arrays of bright white and pink light Diamandis' sandals would now touch the ground. Observing her surroundings, her golden optics would flicker as she would look down at one of the large formations of crystalline gold.. it felt quite still to the touch of the crystalline being, as it was not embedded with holy fragments of light as her crystals were. If one were to marvel upon the guildmistress, she would appear to don one of these large holy gemstones upon the center of her forehead, which would shine a magnificent array of pink lights out of it- it would be the mark of the crystal realm, the outward manifestation of her soul. A brilliant, sparkling crown made of rose quartz, diamonds, and crystal roses would sit right above this lucent prism on her head, holding back the thick bundles of hair that would cascade all the way down her back- she would twirl one of the longer strands through her hair as she would approach the entrance of the dragon's lair, illuminating the edges of the cavern system in-front of where she would stand.
"Huh, that looks like it's gonna be really deep, ♡" the guildmistress would exclaim, allowing her voice to slightly reverberating throughout the entrance of the lair as she would pet her exceed, "the job description said that the dragon's more likely to be dormant at the bottom of his layer on the hotter days of the summer, so I wonder if anyone else is going to turn up to collect some of the dragonscales~ ✰ It's the hottest day it's been all year, so I wouldn't doubt it! We should give it a little wait outside before we go in, it would be better for us to go in with some new friends if anyone else shows! ♡" Turning to exit the edge of the lair's jagged entrance, Diamandis would lean against one of the larger formations of crystals, slumping down to sit against the ground. Releasing a decadent pink backpack from the suspension of her back, she would unzip one of the bigger zippers (decked out in some cutesy star-shaped keychains and other cute pastel designs, of course!) and pull out a water bottle, unscrewing the top to rehydrate as she would wait. It was not a fear of the popstar's to challenge mythical creatures like this one alone, but establishing a party of challengers would be the best bet for an easy and guaranteed success, and for the ability to practice fighting alongside those with similar interests of her own if she got so lucky! By taking on this quest Diamandis wanted to experience just that, even if she didn't personally bring anyone along besides those that stick to her side with her every endeavor- she wanted to be able to grow even more toward what was deemed to be the pinnacle of ethereal power, and what better way than to spar with creatures from the times of the ancient gods?
Removing the pink lacrima-based technology that she would utilize to provide a social aspect of her musical endeavors, Diamandis would smile as she would begin to scroll down one of her feeds, playing a cute little minigame that would pop up in her suggested. It would depict cute green frogs hopping across lilypads in a pink pond, and each jump had to be timed perfectly- it was quite hard, but with the music that was playing in the background being as rad as it was, she slowly began to get hooked. Wavering through the gentle winds that would blow through the canyon, the silk apparel that would reside among the body of the guildmistress would seem to be doing its job in cooling the girl just fine in the hot temperatures, even if she was a little bit sweaty. She would begin to hum to herself quietly as she would play the game, trying to make time pass- if she were lucky, she wouldn't be the only one preparing to make their way down into the depths of the dragon's lair. It wouldn't be the worst, in fact, it wouldn't be bad at all theoretically, but Diamandis was known for being quite the social butterfly, and she wanted to have a job partner today more than anything! Going into the cavern alone would be much more boring than with friends, after all! ♡
