    Fairy Heart

    Tenrou Island, an unusually isolated location of unknown coordinates, floating around the vast and endless sea without a clear path. It was a peaceful land, untouched by foreign conquerors for what had been since the beginning of time itself.

    It was the home of a small race of magical sprites who went by the name of Fairies. Long ago, they were wary of any outside intrusions and were ready to defend their homes with their lives on the line, even if they met mere, harmless strangers. At some point, they crossed paths with the early members of a rowdy guild now known as Fairy Tail, and they formed a pact with them. Ever since then, Fairy Tail has had the solitary privilege of visiting the magical island.

    And then, the impossible took place. A foreign, white ship crashed into the island’s side. Someone had found Tenrou Island without Fairy Tail’s aid, and the Fairies were immediately on guard. Some of the island’s Warrior Fairies decided to use their secret spells to drive away the unwelcome guests, and they formed a group who would then fly towards the beach to confront these intruders.

    Not a single one of those brave warriors survived the onslaught.

    Not all Fairies were erased from existence on that day. Whoever had opened fire on them had moved directly towards the center of the island, forcing through any destructive or illusory spells thrown at them. These intruders varied greatly in appearances, but they all had a very volatile aura around them, much unlike the patrons of this island. The Fairies here had rarely seen their patrons lately, but one thing was for certain – these guys rivaled some of the most powerful mages that Fairy Tail themselves had ever produced.

    They had reached the Core Tree’s roots in no time and bore their way through. All magic on Tenrou Island began to flicker out of control, and fissures began to open up on the ground and release golden mana into the air. The rest of the Fairies who were left on the island sought shelter from the chaos that began to envelop their poor island, desiring to avoid the golden gases that had emerged. Some of these heinous intruders wandered the island in search of someone who would dare oppose them:

    “PUTAIN!!!” echoed through the leafy forests, followed by gunshots travelling in all directions, “That shithead of a Guildmaster took all of the funny wasps for himself! These remaining sa mère can’t even grant a humble Tempest a fair brawl!” The smoke from his flintlock pistols covered most of his face, making the pirate appear far more demonic than he actually was… in one way or another…

    None of the other members had much patience with him, so he was left to wander the island on his own. A group of three were further trying to figure out where and when these Fairy Tail wizards would appear; causing all of this havoc on the island would alert them sooner or later, and a good ambush could guarantee that their heist runs smoothly. One of these three, a figure clad in Midijin robes and a white mask, was carrying a blonde, taller lady by her arm due to an injury on her leg caused by one of the previous Warrior Fairies’ Secret Spell. Safe to say, the blonde madame was fuming and didn’t say a word, while the other blonde in the group – that being an eccentric, pink-clothed male – appeared to walk behind a tree and appear behind another very frequently. “Could you stop trying to mock me, LouLou?! Con, I have half a mind to coat the trees with your-“

    “Madame, madame, by all means, do not worsen your injuri- WAOAHAHAHAH, HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!” LouLou was about to retort, only to be met by a huge spike in Sangreal’s magic power. She was about to send him flying, so he hid behind a tree and appeared to just… phase out of existence for her. Yet, one arm stuck itself out from behind the tree and held up its index finger. “If… I may suggest that we regroup with Master Acennan and, peut être, take part in that huge source of mana that he was sooooooooooooooooooo enthusiastic about-“

    “N-Not if those Fairy Tail guys are on their way right now! Stay on guard, we’ll take them by surprise and that’s that!”

    As you could imagine by now, not all of them were outside…

    In the meantime, deep within the crown root of the Core Tree where a brightened cave was located, a white-clad swordsman stood at the edge to look over the glittery pool below. He was accompanied by a humanoid figure made of shining metal and a strangely calm priest who also had signs of Midijin origin. The swordsman, however, was about to leap off from the root that they were standing on, deserving of a warning from the iron-bodied entity: “If that mana begins to eat away at you, consider our deal over.” What looked to be a snicker was quickly suppressed, and a faint smile escaped the swordsman’s face.

    “I'm willing to bet on the contrary. Just make sure to guard the entrance, should those sacks of shit get any ideas.”

    That was the swordsman’s plan; to transfer all of this mana into a source of power for the mages of Raven Plume, subsequently taking away a lot of Fairy Tail’s power in the meantime. It wasn’t fair that one guild held this much potential all for themselves, after all. And if Fairy Tail were to arrive and retaliate, then their own magic power would only disappear much faster due to the swordsman’s violation of the Core Tree. It would be suicide to fight against them now.

    He bet that not many people, even among Fairy Tail’s ranks themselves, knew about this source of power. It was like a culmination of magic power saved over many years, linking with the Guild Mark of each and every Fairy Tail mage that had ever walked into the hall. Acennan’s plan was simple; to make that huge source of power a property of Raven Plume instead, and handicapping all of Fairy Tail in the meantime.

    With that said, Acennan jumped down and submerged his legs into the pool. The pool’s glittery fluids rose up his body as veins, coating his skin and surrounding his Guild Mark located on the back of his left hand. It changed form…

    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] G1wSoJb

    “… What a dumb appearance. It looks more like Fairy Tail’s now…” he scoffed under his angered breath. Yet, the surge of power inside of him made him smile again, and he acclimated with a declaration: “I guess if that’s how things will turn out, then… how about we go by the name of Raven Tail from now on?!” In his eyes, names meant very little, but it was nonetheless a very petty jab that he took pleasure in.

    With the mana beginning to assimilate with his Guild Mark, the similar Marks on all of the other Raven Plume members began to light up and change into the new look. They were now Raven Tail… and more powerful than before. With a whole new source of mana to tap into at their behest.

    Very conveniently, the Guildmaster of Fairy Tail had prepared a little come-together for all of his guild’s members via a wide variety of grilled meat and vegetables available for the members to partake in, and various beverages to flush down the munchies as well. This was located right outside of the guild’s back end, on the grassy plain leading up towards Fairy Hills – a small, white tent house was raised to accommodate most of the members, and benches and stools were also provided along with a joyous bonfire. You could walk straight out of the guild’s lounge through the back entrance on the large, glass view and into the grill place, accompanied by an orange, setting sun…

    It was times like these that made Mura fall in love with the guild back when he was younger. He sincerely hoped that some of the other members would warm up to the company and enjoy it just as much… but he knew that not everyone desired close company of this kind. Yet, he wouldn’t treat them coldly or leave them out of anything, and they were just as welcome as the rest to try out his grilled teriyaki, grilled mushrooms, grilled oysters, grilled tomatoes, grilled chicken skewers and grilled scallops. Mura didn’t hold back when it came to Midijin cuisines…

    “A’right, my teriyaki is ready if any of you want to taste…!” he proclaimed proudly, “It’s not every day you get to try my country’s priced recipes, so make sure to savor it all!” It was about the time when he wiped his forehead with his prosthetic arm that something began bristling… that being his Guild Mark. As well as the Guild Mark on every other Fairy Tail mage. Mura quickly noticed the changing glows in their marks and rose an eyebrow, before the sudden and sharp drain in mana took him by surprise.

    “The hell-“

    It came to a halt, but a significant amount of mana had been drained out. It began naturally regenerating, but it was at such a slow rate and felt like someone had bit a chump off of him. He glanced around at sonic speed, but to no avail – no signs of ambushers casting some draining spells on them from a distance. Was it to do with their Guild Marks? What was going on with them?!

    Tranquility. Ever since Aven had retired from his post as Ace of Fairy, he'd sought out the peaceful, ash filled winds of the Forgotten Realm to attempt mastery over the power his ancestor had passed down to him; though, perhaps more aptly, the responsibility that had been hoisted onto his shoulders. As much as he'd wished to improve the standards of the guild, the rising conflict between Magic Power and Dark Energy in his body was more than enough challenge to force a relegation of his efforts to one task... and he could hardly manage a guild while dead.

    Lately, the balance had begun to settle, though only after months of harsh meditation. In fact, he'd begun to wonder just how long his seclusion had lasted, thus far: his perception of time had warped considerably since his transcendence into the Scion of the Forgotten Realm, and neither the dimensional divide nor the perpetual dusk of the realm itself aided in any accurate measurement of a day. Opening his eyes, Aven gazed out the window of the tower, scanning the lifeless landscape that stretched into the horizon. He chuckled in spite of himself, the ruler of an empty castle, of an abandoned kingdom, of a desolate demi-plane. It both amused and frustrated the man that he should be tasked with the stewardship of the equivalent of an empty treasure trove. And yet, here I am, a steward, all the same. As little as he believed in fate, it's strings seemed to puppet him just as well as anyone else, despite his various efforts.

    Rising from his meditative position, Aven stretched, and strode toward the window, reaching his left hand out to catch the breeze. The faint turquoise Guild Mark, so faded from his absence, still sometimes ferried his thoughts to the past, and everything he'd experienced as a member of the Fairy Tail guild. He'd made both friends and rivals there, both of which spurred him to become a better wizard that he could've possibly been on his own. Ever since Nessa had left, though, it'd felt as though his bonds with the other members were... superficial, at best. Even when he'd served as Ace, members rarely came to him with concerns or troubles, making his job largely irrelevant. In his meditation, he'd come to realize that one aspect of his decision to leave to guild was undoubtedly a sense of self-imposed inadequacy, that he'd been too incompetent to warrant their trust. He'd come to terms with this, over time, though the taste was no less bitter than before.

    It was times like these that Aven couldn't help but wonder what had become of the Fairy Tail Guild. In his time there, he'd learned that the roster was largely transient, and it was anyone's guess who frequented the halls at any given time. Still, he was decently positive that Mura's time as the Guildmaster would be far from over, bar some incredible tragedy. That wizard was more than capable of handling himself, if not only in the respect of the formers lackadaisical nature. Maybe it's time I pay the guild a visit? He'd had the same thought countless times during his tenure in the Forgotten Realm, but this time, there was weight behind it. With his learned mastery over Transcendency, he no longer feared to unleash it around fellow wizards, a fear that had not been unfounded before.

    Aven's pondering was interrupted by an alarming weakness, as a massive quantity of Magic energy was ripped from his body, causing him to slump forward, tipping over the edge of the tower window and hurtling toward the ground below. What... happened...?! He could feel the Dark Energy start to flood his body in response to the sudden threat, and his Transcendent form burst outward almost instantaneously, to his shock. His body struck the ground hard, cracking cobble below him, but Aven was not winded by the impact. Rather, he was stunned by the circumstance. The balance was broken, and he could feel his connection to Magic waning by the second, Dark Energy now almost the sole makeup of his power.

    Struggling to his feet, Aven's peripheral vision caught sight of the Guild Mark, which had lost what luster it had left, now a dull grey. Something was terribly, terribly wrong. Reaching his hand out and extending it in a clawed gesture, Aven ripped open a gateway to the Prime Plane, the shimmering visage of setting Magnolia sun stinging his eyes, after having spent so long in perpetual dusk. And here, I thought it'd be a choice. He stepped through the portal, emerging onto the back lawn of the Fairy Tail Guild hall, to the sight of what looked to be a Guild-wide barbeque. Stepping out of the rip in space, and onto the grass, the tear quickly mended itself, and the abundance of ethernano began to conflict with his dark energy, as his body attempted to recoup it's previous losses. Luckily, he'd entered far enough away from the other wizards to avoid his Aura draining their magic, but with his Transcendence active, his Dark Energy naturally flooded into the area around him.

    He glanced around the gathering, taking stock of the wizards in the area, before his eyes settled on the one he was looking for, his voice echoing with a soft but eerie dissonance. "Mura, we need to talk."

    It was a wonderful day, one of the reasons why Akemi accepted the invitation Mura had sent out for everyone who wanted to join him for a guild barbecue. In the past, she'd been a big fan of clouded days and actually disliked such summer-like weather, but over the years she'd grown to appreciate the bright blue skies and the warm bright sun. Of course, most people didn't know what had changed that made her change her opinion, but the end result was that she was willing to attend festivities and celebrations outdoors rather than staying in the library reading scroll after scroll.

    Not that this meant that Akemi was planning to get all buddy-buddy with the other members of the guild. Even as an Ace her position was meant to give her clearance to take care of tasks which might not be suitable for standard guild members. One of the reasons she liked to spend so much time in the library was that it was an easy way to not have to constantly deal with people bothering her. Except for Nymara, who had no understanding of the concept of privacy, but Akemi figured that was her own fault for taking the redhead as her apprentice.

    But that was why Akemi was sitting on one of the chairs in the shade of the white canvas that was meant to provide some respite from that bright sun for the members of Fairy Tail. In her hands was a scroll and she gave little indication of acknowledging the presence of anyone else in the tent as her golden eyes moved from left to right at a respectable pace. If she was going to be surrounded by her fellow Fairy Tail members today she wasn't going to get any serious studying done, so instead the scroll detailed some of the more exotic flora and fauna that could be found in the countryside of Minstrel. Not the most exciting of topics, but Akemi firmly believed that one who wished to acquire knowledge needed to keep an open mind.

    And unlike most scholars, she had a lot more time so she could afford to cast her net wide and accumulate a library's worth of wisdom inside of her head.

    "Out of curiosity, does your country produce any food which isn't grilled? Because if not our resident firebrand might be a natural master of Midian cuisine." She was aware that Midian cuisine was much more than just grilling, but today it was all about grilling and Akemi wasn't hesitating on pointing it out.

    Her dry commentary would quickly be replaced by alarm, however, when she felt her guild mark absorb a big portion of her energy without any warning. Dropping the scroll she'd been reading she slammed her hands together, producing a loud, sharp sound as her eyes went sharp. When she'd accepted the guild mark she'd known it would come with a couple of strings attached, but she hadn't ever agreed to let it consume her magic.

    The drain had already ended before she could do anything to stem the flow, but she wasn't about to let this happen again. When she separated her hands the silver mark on her palm had turned a pure white, and the bindings on her other hand hid a black mirror image. As long as she didn't press her palms together the mark would effectively be non-functional, which should prevent any further attempts to drain her.

    That didn't address the loss of energy she'd already endured, so even as she picked up the scroll and rolled it up so she could store it somewhere safe Akemi inhaled slowly. Throughout the tent and its surroundings shadows lost their saturation, turning into ephemeral remnants as all the dark was drawn towards Akemi to replenish her reserves. It would take some time for the shadows to return to how they used to be, but for now Akemi at least no longer felt exhausted.

    "Now then..." Her gaze turned towards where a rift was opened in thin air, her left arm quickly enveloped by a malevolent dark claw in case the intruder was hostile and responsible for the drain. The timing was certainly suspicious, and even when she recognised the new arrival Akemi didn't dismiss the claw. The fact that he wasn't exuding any overt hostility didn't mean that he was in the clear, and Akemi didn't know Aven well enough to be confident he was innocent either.

    But the man wanted to talk to Mura specifically, so she'd let the guild master do the talking for now. A quick glance around the tent showed her that every other member had experienced something similar, which reaffirmed that it was somehow related to the guild mark.

    Tossing the rolled-up scroll into her claw the parchment disappeared as if it had never existed, the raven-haired assassin moved around the tent to check up on each member individually. A quick touch to the shoulder or head was all she needed to know whether they were in need of assistance or not.

    She wasn't a people person or a medic, but if something was making a move on the entire guild it was better if as many people were capable of answering the call as possible.

    Takumi hadn’t done much since rejoining the guild. It was hard to get used to things due to the sea of unfamiliar faces that had replaced many of his close friends in the guild, and he hadn’t really interacted with most of them. He didn’t want to acknowledge many of his friends were absent, least of all people like Heero and Hera, who’d shown him so much. Mura was still there, of course, but something felt… hollow, without the people he’d come to love as family. But he wouldn’t deny Mura when he invited the guild to a gathering, not when the guildmaster probably had similar feelings in regards to some of their former and missing guildmates.

    The sight of the gathering had sent a fierce pang of longing for his younger years. Fairy Tail may have still been his guild, but he couldn’t call these new faces family yet. He missed everyone far too much. Even Coal and Wist no longer spent time at the guild with him, preferring to stay at home.

    The sight of all the recipes from Mura’s (and his, even if he hadn’t grown up there) culture was a little more nostalgic for him, and he looked forwards to tasting them. But before any of them could, he felt a sudden sharp drain on his mana, coming from… his guild mark, of all places? “What IS that?” he asked, having never seen something like this in his years in the guild. True, he may not be the longest standing member they had but he had been around for years… so what was this that even Mura seemed confused? An attack? He couldn’t sense anybody that wasn’t in the guild nearby.

    Standing up to his full height (which wasn’t exactly tall, even Mura towered over him now,) the blonde ice mage looked to his oldest friend. “This seems fishy, Mura. Worse than the time Hera dropped an entire abandoned guild hall on my head in a fight fishy. I really don’t like this…” It was likely they would have to fight, if everyone was feeling this. Takumi was fortunate enough to have a large mana pool for his power level, but not everybody here would be so lucky. What if it happened again? If everyone lost all their mana they could be hurt, if they didn’t outright die…

    Straightening out his armor, he looked at the rest of his guildmates. He saw a few who seemed as though they’d felt it too, though he didn’t know everyone else enough to determine their current emotions.

    Post by Nymara 10th September 2022, 2:36 pm

    "I'm sure the other members of the guild would appreciate it if you left some of the master's cooking for them, my lady."
    "Relax! I just gotta get a taste of everything!" The familiar banter between Nymara and her exceed Lucky was voiced as the young woman eagerly stacked her plate with the food that Mura had so generously prepared! The armored cat only sighed at this response before speaking up again. "That's what I'm afraid of." He'd grumble, though Lucky knew better than most people by now how hard it was to get Nymara's attention away from free food. If the spring festival was any indication, the cat had a sinking feeling that history would repeat itself. Still, it was fortunate that Akemi was nearby, the exceed thinking he had spotted her earlier when the two of them arrived at the barbecue. If things got too out of hand he could always count on the twilight dragon to put Nymara back into line. Of course that never made the situation any less awkward, and it was always preferable to avoid such actions if possible. "Lucky we got everything here!" She said between mouthfuls, grabbing what looked like a grilled shrimp shishkabob and handing it to the cat-knight. Lucky couldn't deny that this Midijin cuisine was delicious, already trying some of it earlier. Reluctantly the cat would take the shrimp and begin to munch on it, causing Nymara to laugh. "Ha! Act like you're above it all but you can't resist!" She would say rather loudly, taking any opportunity to poke fun at Lucky's personality. "Well there is a difference between relentlessly consuming everything in your path like a beast and taking your time to savor the finer foods this realm has to offer." He would chirp in response with a noble tone, trying his best to eat his food with respect as if to contrast Nymara's carelessness.

    Nymara was happy she had heard about the barbecue today! It was rare that guild-wide events like this would take place, at least since she had joined anyways. Ever since coming under the apprenticeship of Akemi the girl rarely found herself interacting with most of the other guild's members. Not by design of course, though little opportunity had arisen for Nymara to establish a strong connection with anyone else. Of course, she had already had the pleasure of meeting the Guildmaster Mura, remembering his support for her the day she joined Fairy Tail. However, before today the redhead rarely saw him. Probably just the side effect of being in charge! Always a busy bee! At least the same could be said for her mentor, Nymara scarcely remembering a time when she saw Akemi doing something other than working. Most of the time Nym had to drag her out of that dark and dusty old library to get her to enjoy the sights! Still, the young slayer was excited to see that the twilight dragon had made her appearance at the barbecue, chatting it up with Mura! "A lovely evening for this, I must say." Lucky would say, hopping onto the table near Nymara while staring off at the sunset. "A great opportunity for us to familiarize ourselves with some of the other guild members, no?" The exceed would continue, posing a question as Nymara awkwardly froze mid-chew when she noticed his eyes staring at her before quickly swallowing what was left in her mouth. "Yeah! There are all sorts of faces here I haven't seen yet!" She'd reply with a grin, taking notice of all the guildmembers meandering about that she had yet to meet. Most of their scents were foreign, so perhaps meeting some new folks would prove exciting!

    Though before Nymara had a chance to do anything else something odd began to happen. She felt some sort of... tingling? Without warning the girl's vision began to fade in and out suddenly and the spot on her back where her guild emblem lay began to glow through her coat! "Nnngh.. Th- The hell!?" Nymara would grunt with frustration, feeling as though a wave of extreme fatigue had washed over her out of nowhere! She barely had the strength to stand for a moment, leaning against the table as Lucky stared on with concern, though the exceed would soon begin to feel a similar sensation, as well as his guild mark, began to shine. It didn't take long for them to notice that something was happening to everyone else as well, including both Akemi and the guild master! However, Nymara was just as clueless as the rest of them, not having any kind of explanation for this newfound weakness! When the drain passed Nym felt her limbs grow weak and her body heavy, though she had noticed Akemi remain strong and use the surrounding shadows to regenerate herself. "G- Great idea!" Nymara blurted out somewhat wearily before instantly turning her attention to the massive bonfire that accommodated the barbecue. In only a few seconds the flames twisted and twirled in the air before converging between Nymara's fanged jaws, her instincts telling her to regain as much magic energy as she could after that random drain! After consuming the last of the fire Nymara let out a large sigh of relief, straightening her back and rolling her shoulders. Certainly wasn't a barrier against future drains, though now she felt a little more rejuvenated somewhat. "NOW WHICH ONE OF YOU BASTARDS DID THAT!?" Nym called out angrily, looking for anyone who may look like they were responsible. Lucky, still feeling rather tired would raise his head. "Calm down, my lady. I- It's likely not f-from one of our allies." The cat said, hoping to reduce the chances of Nymara starting another fire.

    A shift in the air alerted the girl to the presence of another individual, and it seemed she wasn't alone. Everyone stared off at the portal that just appeared in the grass, preluding the arrival of what appeared to be some dark armored wizard? He smelled familiar, though Nymara couldn't exactly tell. Of course, her eyes only narrowed when this mysterious man appeared immediately after their entire guild was just drained, balling her hand into a tight fist as flames began to envelop it. "AH! YOU! Was it you!?" She yelled with anger, almost convincing herself Aven was the immediate cause of their recent problem without any kind of evidence! The heat in the air around Nymara steadily began to rise as she carefully watched the newcomer, though it seemed like he already knew Mura? The dragon slayer wanted to lunge at the dark armored wizard though restrained herself when he mentioned the guild master's name, instead only turning to Mura with a silent stare to gauge his reaction before deciding if she needed to fight this man or not!

    The idea of having one large guild barbeque was perhaps one of Mura’s stranger ideas. They operated more like a business, after all -- providing jobs and providing wages to the members of the guild for their efforts and successes. That wasn’t to say that Fairy Tail was cold and calculated in its expressionism but, compared to the stories of its previous iterations, it was far more cut and dry. It was one of the reasons Vandrad had chosen it as his guild to operate out of; he could perform jobs, provide proof of his completion and then get his pay, all the while focusing on his own personal missions.

    Granted, it had been a few years since he’d joined the guild with such dismissive beliefs. Now that he was a full blown Ace, he was often the one that was assigning jobs to the board for the guild mages to take as well as verifying the funds that needed to be presented to the ones that completed their tasks. It was a job that was quite in line with that business-like appeal; one that didn’t require the former prince to interact with many people outside of official business. But, there was something to say that Vandrad had softened over the years. His stance on avoiding most of the guild members and operating on his own had become a thing of the past. So while the idea of getting chummy and partaking in a low-key party wasn’t high on his list, there was little denying that contributing would increase the guild’s morale.

    So in spite of how he knew Saffron would laugh and poke fun until his dying day, he decided to give it his full effort. His hands swept up behind his head, swiftly moving as they tied bandana around his forehead. With a bright orange apron over his usual armored outfit, he pulled out two metal-topped cleaning brushes, spun them in his hands in a display of showmanship before catching them evenly in his hands. The former prince cleaned the grill he was on, the hiss of the liquid on the skittle spreading as he evened out the pool. He deposited the brushes off to the side and then pulled forth a large vulcan steak. He’d already seasoned it in his family’s dry rub and he gave it a few more pats to ensure that the flavorful spices were properly set in. Then he slid his hand under the steak and flipped it into the air, while his other hand grabbed a knife and swung it through the air, evenly cutting off portions of the meat.

    With several dozen steak pieces now littering the table in front of him, he used the knife to flip the pieces onto the grill, the satisfying hiss of the raw meat hitting heat filling the air in front of him. Letting out a small sigh of relief, his eyes glanced up to look around the immediate area. Most of the members were there at that point, conversing and partaking in the food that was already prepared. It looked like Mura had finished up preparing his special teriyaki food, which did smell quite delectable. "Better hurry over and grab some of that; I have a feeling it’ll go quickly,” he told Saffron. "And grab me one while you’re at it.”

    The former prince settled in, watching the pieces of flank with the ever watchful gaze of one that liked to cook to perfection. And he would have remained as such had it not been for the strange sensation on his chest. As he glanced down, he could see that a… light of some sort was trying to shine right through his armor. The thought of it being his guild mark didn’t even have time to fully form until he was suddenly hit with a wave of exhaustion. Grunting, he slid his foot back to keep himself from toppling over. A good portion of his magic had suddenly disappeared, vaporized as if he’d used a strong spell. "What the hell was that?” he asked as he centered himself, his ability to reabsorb ethernano at an unnatural rate already trying to replenish what had been lost. Had this been an attack from the remainder of the Dread Masters? Or even Maker?

    He wasn’t given a whole lot of time to consider it. The air near Mura shifted and as Vandrad glanced over at it, he saw an uneven portal tearing itself open. Vandrad acted on instinct, his magic teleporting him from his position to one right beside Mura. His Empowerment took over, though with the sudden impact to his magic, he was only able to reach Gold Grade. His magic presence amplified, Vandrad settled his now emerald gaze on the demonic creature that stepped through the portal, one of his hands slightly off to the side and bristling with destructive magic. The presence of the humanoid was downright violent, Vandrad’s ability to sense the finer details of magic practically retreating at the sight and sensation of it. The being named Mura and insisted that they needed to talk. "If you’re the one responsible for this attack on Fairy Tail, the only thing you need to do is explain yourself,” Vandrad spoke his piece. Yet, despite the texture of his magic, the humanoid didn’t seem… hostile. The former prince couldn’t quite get a full empathic reading on him but there wasn’t an air of malevolence about him.

    COME AT ME AND YOU'LL SEE
    I'M MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

    --- YOU THINK THAT YOU'LL BREAK ME, YOU'RE GONNA FIND IN TIME ---
    Saffron was having a great day. She was never one to turn down any kind of social gathering, so a guild barbeque was right up her alley. What had really made it a special treat, though, was Vandrad. Her antisocial mentor was willing to participate, if only to take his role as an Ace seriously, but she hadn’t expected him to get involved to this level. Between his hairband and his apron, she honestly didn’t know what to stare at first.

    “Best. Day. Ever,” she informed the older man with a grin, parking herself in a lawn chair near him, a bottle of beer in one hand. The blonde was dressed for comfort today, sporting a pair of fresh jeans and a plain black shirt with the sleeves rolled up past her elbows, leaving her flesh arm and her robotic arm in full view. With her sunglasses on her face, Saffron leaned back and made herself comfortable, kicking one of her boots up to rest upon her other knee. For now she was content to just hang out near Vandrad and relax, enjoying the sunshine and watching the former prince as he worked his craft. She was aware he could cook, though she’d never had anything of his thus far. Admittedly, the vulcan meat he was working on smelled pretty good.

    After a few minutes, Vandrad suggested that she go get some of the teriyaki food that Mura was preparing, stating that it would probably run out fairly quickly. He was hoping to get some of it himself, too, though he had to focus on his cooking. Saffron glanced over toward Mura’s cooking station. “Not a bad idea. I’ll go get some for us.” Setting her beer in the cupholder on her chair, she stood and started making her way over toward Mura, nodding to other guild members along the way and giving a few friendly or even flirtatious greetings here and there.

    But before she could fully reach the guildmaster’s station, Saffron slowed to a stop as a weird sensation washed over her. She couldn’t see her guild mark through her shoes, but there was an odd glow coming from her right foot where the emblem laid. Then, a sharp wave of exhaustion consumed her and she had to quickly adjust her stance to keep from losing her equilibrium. It felt like a massive chunk of her magical energy had been depleted. “What the fuck..?” the woman murmured, shaking her head to try to clear it. A quick glance around told her that it wasn’t just her, either. Everyone was behaving much the same as her. She could feel the mana regenerating, but it was at a snail’s pace in comparison to normal.

    She noticed a dimensional door open near Mura and some strange horned man walked out. Before Saffron could even think to react Vandrad was already there confronting the individual and demanding answers. Saffron’s violet gaze panned over to Mura and the other Ace, Akeya. Akeya seemed to regard the man only for a moment and then chose to ignore him, which gave Saffron pause on assuming the man was a threat. She’d probably rejoin Vandrad shortly, but for now she figured it was best to let him and Mura handle whatever was going on. So instead she hung out and waited to see what happened.

    As Akeya made her way around to check on all the members, her path would inevitably cross with Saffron as well. The blonde waved off any concern to her own wellbeing. “I’m fine, just drained. Any idea what happened, yet..? Anything I can do to help?”

    “Am I that hungry?” The currently blonde haired kitsune asked sleepily to herself, one hand absent mindedly rubbing her guild mark that was placed on her stomach. It felt rather strange, like her energy was being drained or something and the curious mage couldn’t help but wonder about what was happening. Was this a test or something? Maybe a game that Kyuken was playing with her in order to try and rouse her from her slumber? Well, it had certainly worked, as up until her mana had been drained, she’d been sleeping close by, finding the heat of the island to be rather nice. She’d found a nice spot close to the grill, completely uncaring as to how she’d look to anyone else. To be fair, she didn’t really know a lot of the other members of Fairy Tail, a fact that like most things didn’t bother her too much.

    Fully awake now and the smell coming from the grill now having her complete and undivided attention, she’d saunter over with surprising speed and help herself to some of the Guildmaster’s lovely food. Mura looked rather pleased with himself with his efforts and as the beautiful textures of the Midian cuisine tickled her taste buds, she soon understood why. He had quite the gift and the nine tails of the vixen were soon moving all over the place, a rather vibrant display of her approval. It had certainly been worth the wait and the crimson eyes of the fox were soon moving over to the Guildmaster. “Nice job, Mura, if you ever get tired of running Fairy Tail then I’d bet you could make a fortune as a chef.” She was just teasing him of course, as the centuries old being was prone to doing. They’d become rather close or at least she thought so and her developing relationship with Kyuken only seemed to be amplifying things. It was certainly an unusual situation, that was for sure.

    Her mind briefly drifted to their last encounter at that kitsune temple and the results of that brought a knowing smile to the kitsune’s face. Poor Mura had found his consciousness tossed aside again at the behest of a spirit and what was the first thing that the apparition wanted to do? Well, the same as what most of the spirits that the shota Guildmaster knew wanted to do whenever they saw her. Kyuken was such a dirty minded fellow and Inari hadn’t been any different. Still, Menka had enjoyed herself immensely and with any luck, perhaps there would be a chance for some fun today too. The doom and gloom atmosphere that was appearing to descend on the place did little to dent her good mood and even the pain that she felt in her stomach only caused her eyebrows to rise a bit. Perhaps a good feast would get rid of it?

    For the moment at least, her interest was more on the spread than anything else and unless things changed pretty drastically, that was probably how things would be for a while.

    Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker ~ The Ewer Brimmeth:

    It was a hot Summer day in Magnolia town the air was clear of any clouds and the sun shined brightly above the Fairy Tail's guild home town. Julius walked through the market street to do some last minute shipping before heading to the guild where Mura had invited everyone for a large scale barbeque. Walking past the many stalls Julius' eye fell on a stall where wine was being sold. Say Julius you'd think Mura would've bought enough drinks already right? The parrot was questioning Julius' actions upon buying more then necessary. Do you take me for a fool? I already know that I'm just getting a bottle for at home before we left on our last job I noticed I'm all out of wine. But maybe I'll get Mura a bottle as well so he can drink something with actual taste then the weird concoctions he usually drinks Julius sighed for a second But then again I think he'd prefer sake you know just forget it and take this bottle for myself. Julius paid the man and headed home to drop off the wine and take a shower as well. Aren't you going to wear something else then your usually pirate get up? No, why should I? Julius looked puzzled towards Squable.Well it's quite warm outside maybe you should wear something a bit more lighter? Years wearing this get-up nd now you're going to question my fashion decisions during the summer? Julius shrugged it off and put on his usual pirate clothes

    On their way to the guild Julius was lost in thought. Hey you alright Julius? You're a bit lost in thought Huh? Oh it's nothing really... Julius tried to shrug off Squable's concerns. Now don't give me that mate I can tell something is troubling you from miles away. Julius sighed and decided to just tell his parrot. Ever since we came back I've taken up a more... How should I put it? Lone wolf type of demeanor? Like back when we first joined the guild so much has happened... And we've lost so many friends... Julius stopped for a second to withhold the urge to cry, he took a deep breath and continued walking. Anyway I've moved on from that so that isn't really the point I'm trying to make, the point is I have not talked or interacted at all with the other members outside of Mura and Mitsuo who has disappeared maybe I'm a bit scared? Squable was taken by surprise when he said scared. You Scared? HA well there is a first time for everything I guess. Julius glared towards Squable. A-Anyway I'm sure you don't have to worry about anything! Remember, anyone in Fairy Tail is considered family! Julius chuckled. I suppose you're right about that.

    After a while the two made it to the guild where a sign was put up directing the members to Fairy Hills a lodging area for members. After another short walk the pair had finally made it to the barbeque Julius and Squable could smell the appetizing smell of food everywhere. A lot of members had already arrived. Do you think we're late? No, when it comes to a barbeque you're only late as the food is gone or when everyone has had their fill! ...You made that up just now right? Yes I did, but never mind that! Let's get something to eat! Julius grabbed a plate and some foot and sat down at a table. But before the pair could eat anything it happened.

    Final Fantasy XIV ~ Bedlam's Brink:

    A sudden hit of fatigue hit Julius like a train. Julius fell to his knees and felt something being drained from him, was it magic? Arck! Julius started to breath heavily. Oi Julius! What's happening? I don't really know I just feel very tired all of a sudden. Julius looked around and it seemed like he wasn't the only one experiencing it Hm? Julius looked to his left leg and noticed a sort of light coming through his pants. Wait, my guild mark is there... Julius looked around and noticed a bucket of water. Perfect! Julius slowly made his way to the bucket and put his hand in it. The water is glowing faintly. Ahhh much beter I'm starting to feel replenished! Julius stood up again from the ground and noticed a rift of some sort a dark armored person came out of it. Oi! If you're responsible for this prank I can already tell you that you're a terrible comedian! Julius was pissed off since he was actually starting to enjoy himself.

    Post by Sir Leonard 13th September 2022, 10:45 am

    Fairy Tail has been known for the strength of the bond between the members of this little family of theirs. And as the old man sat on a strandkorb, which was next to a small stool that took up the role of a table that had his wine and a small plate of barbequed meat, he felt peace and enjoyment to see this value was still being kept as one of the highest regards. Mura, a man Leo had known for years even when he was still a wee lad, had invited everyone to a small get together. Leo had decided to come to this as he is still part of the guild. It was also one way he and Lina could bond. Lina had taken quite a liking to the other members of the guild, befriending most of the them.

    A small chuckle would escape the man as he saw his little girl mingle and be inspired to become one of, if not better, than her technical siblings. It was, a lunch and a show so to speak. What's even better is that since Lina is so happy and energetic getting to spend all of this time with the guild, he could get her to do anything he wanted. Including, asking for a refill on his meat plate. "Lina, could get us some more please?" he waved and exclaimed loud enough for her to hear. The little girl looked at her father right away at the sound of her own name, and gladly followed the old man's instruction, dashing towards him to grab their plate and dashing some more for the grill while the old man chuckled and took a sip of his wine. Everything was perfect.

    While the little girl was out getting what was asked of her, Leo sat in silent contemplation of the many events that had happened with the guild, his personal life, and what the future held. As he gazed upon the fluffy white clouds in the air at how serene the scene was, his mind drifted upon another who shared the color white, that of a woman whose hair bore the same hue.

    But as he stared, his vision slowly got blurry, and his head felt it was spinning as if recovering from a bad hangover. Immediately he sat up, elbows to his knees and tried to massage his temples to alleviate the sensation, but to know avail. He owns hands felt weak, and he looked upon them with curiosity. What could it be, he thought. Was he tired? He definitely hasn't done much today yet, but still the feeling of fatigue crept over him. And it was at this moment that something similar was happening to every other Fairy Tail mage. Others had that had already recovered took stock of themselves and then of others and eyes shifted from side to side as a crushing realization was just hitting him.

    In an attempt to see if Leo's worst fears are being realized, the old man attempted to bring forth one of his weapons in to the physical realm as he looked upon his palm concentrating diligently but to no avail. The faint traces of black magic that accompanied every summon was all that appeared, only this time with more opacity. A gasp would escape every breath Leo took, his magic was inexplicably drained and a quick glance on his back where he could feel his guild mark writhing. Something was definitely wrong.

    Hurriedly, the man left his chair and made for his daughter who was still in line at the barbeque grill trying to get Nymara to give her some before she took out the flames. He quickly grabbed her by the shoulder as he knelt down so as to speak to her in her eye level. "Lina. Listen to me. Very. Carefully. Find Mura and tell him to go to Tenrou island. Now." he said with great urgency. Lina was understandably confused, not knowing what word to utter. She tried to make a complete sentence but would be interrupted by her father. "Do as I say now, girl. It ha something to do with everyone feeling weak! Go! And get home right after." he exclaimed before turning her around and pushing her on her way at which point the girl made a run for it.

    Leo then turned and headed for the shore in a hurry, his right hand made a claw and made a rising motion with his wrist. Black aura rose from the ground and the earth where it was coming out from shook slowly pushing upward a few Leo's weapons being held by skeletal hands. He grabbed the weapons with such disgust because with most of the Fairy Tail mages' magic being drained, he had to resort to using his family's darker methods for conjuring magic. What's worse is that in order for him to get to Tenrou island quickly himself, he would have to drain magic, or even life source from another living being.

    Fortunately, a group of deer were herding nearby the path Leo was walking and quickly the old man held out his hand and seemingly a one-way connection with the animals. They immediately had their essence drained out of them, reduced to a sickly white color that Leo had absorbed. Most of the other deer tried to make a run for it, but only managed a few steps before falling to the ground. Sadness was evident in Leo's eyes as he had to resort to their lives in order to solve the sudden weakness the group was feeling. And so, with a sigh, Leo held out his hand and with a bit of a strain, and a faint glow from his mark and a small trinket around his waist, summoned a personal portal that had outlines og orange and a swirling green energy in the middle. However bits of his family's black hued magic could be seen swirling with the green as he had to resort to that source of power. Leo, who had already been panting, stepped through the portal to be on his way to Tenrou Island after which the portal immediately closed behind him.

    Meanwhile, Lina was panting as she ran looking for Mura. She kept shouting out "Mura! Mura! Uncle Muuuuraaaa!" as she ran until eventually she found him. With a gasp, she ran faster than before as soon as she saw the guild master. "Uncle Mura, dad was telling me that we need to get to Ten-" her explanation was cut short as she got closer and closer to Mura as she finally saw in full view that they had a guest which was looking for him too.

    The man had a demonic visage in Lina's eyes and was filled with worry, he looked super powerful and with the weakened state everyone was in, she could not even begin to imagine the harm he could cause. But being burdened with an important task form her father, she thought it wise to stay close to her uncle Mura. As such, the little girl made a run for it and hide behind the guild master whimpering as she went then stuck her head out slightly to watch the 'visitor' clutching the clothing on his legs tightly while tugging on it. Trying to make her presence known and whispered to him with a voice loud enough so only he could hear "Uncle Mura! Dad says we need to go to Tenrou island."

    Unsurprisingly, the rift in space nearby alerted the Guildmaster, but he immediately recognized that sort of dark energy. It came from an old friend… Aven. Did the effect taking place here envelop him too? Whoever had done this was dangerous; ripping mana directly and instantly from this many wizards all at once was a feat unheard of. Mura had only dealt with such effects when dealing with Oblivium bullets from that battle at the borders a while ago…

    As a matter of fact, looking around the barbeque, Mura quickly concluded that every member with the Guild Mark present had lost a very notable percentage of their mana. Even Akemi, Vandrad, Nymara, Takumi, Saffron and Julius had shown their reactions to this sudden, unexplained phenomenon… although, Menka looked just fine. The alarming event only managed to gently wake her up from her nap, that vixen. Still, even with that many tails working as batteries, there was a clear hint that not all her reserves were available at the moment.

    “N-Nymara- hey, guys, wait! It’s Aven, a guild member” Mura quickly warned the reckless Dragon Slayer and the others who grew quickly and expectedly wary of the not-so-friendly-looking entity who walked through a rift in existence without warning, before the shaman locked eyes with Aven once more, “You lost mana too? Listen, I’m not sure how, but-“

    ... L-Lina?! Even she looked too shocked by the incident, even though she didn’t possess a Guild Mark yet. She looked scared to hell of Aven’s arrival too and even hid behind him in fright, prompting the shaman to stroke her hair with his prosthetic arm. “Roger that, Lina. Go over to bar and stay there – we’ll go to Tenrou Island, then,” he gently whispered to her, letting her know that the bartender Adam would keep her safe.

    “Everyone, your… p-please don’t panic, but your Guild Marks look blurry! Even yours, Mura, it’s become transparent!” Kyuken panicked with an auric, pointing finger at Mura’s very exposed Guild Mark on the left side of his forehead. It was no longer as strongly visible as before; its turquoise color had faded just a bit, but enough to blur the symbol… and it was a similar case for the others, depending on how their bodies reacted with these Guild Marks. Some had turned greyer, others looked like thin erasers had scraped over a few areas…

    Mura cupped his chin for a moment. As of right now, no second attempt had been made at draining their mana, but he could never be sure that it wouldn’t happen again, so he’d have to be quick and figure out something. He didn’t know what Aven knew, but perhaps Aven also wanted intel from him about this mess, to which Mura could only disappoint him with obliviousness... Tenrou Island, huh. If Lina was to know of that being connected to all of this, then it must've been something that Leo knew as well. Their Guild Marks meshing with the sensation on his forehead, along with the reactions of everyone... it brought some pieces of the puzzle together.

    This would call for the guild to venture to an island far away. Quickly, Mura relayed his knowledge to Zirconis for confirmation: “Zirconis, remember back when you lived in Tenrou Island?”

    “Lived… is the wrong term, but yes. Is this about the Tree?”

    “… Mhm. I believe Leo has found out that the Tree has been played with,” Mura hummed with a nod. Not much information was ever documented about the Core Tree’s connection with their Guild Marks – all that he knew was that the gigantic tree in the heart of Tenrou Island had a magical thread that connected all of their Guild Marks. This Tree might’ve even been the reason why the Aces and himself were able to draw power from their Great Fairy Spells, and the more Mura thought about it, the more ridiculous it appeared that his predecessors and even he hadn’t tried a little harder to understand the Tree’s purpose and mechanics.

    Still… Tenrou Island was sacred for Fairy Tail. Mura simply followed customs when it came to that hallowed land, influenced by his Midijin upbringing. Sacred grounds shouldn’t be meddled too much with, but they should be respected and treated with modesty… but that was a rule broken today. He believed that someone had messed with the Tree and caused their mana issue here.

    “Aven, I apologize… but I’m glad to see you here,” he spoke back to Aven before looking around the grass area, making sure to glance at everyone present. Now that a potential cause was imaged in his head, Mura’s eyes grew sharper. A silvery glow fluxed over his usually honey-brown irises before he spoke up: “Listen! I’ll need everyone to gather at the lounge near the elevator now – and prepare yourselves for battle! I’ll bring some equipment to aid us too, then I’ll explain what I know!”

    With that said, the barbeque was over. Mura levitated from his position, let go of his apron and approached the glass entrance to the lounge before making his way to the elevator. He didn’t wait for anyone, but he simply expected them to heed his words and get themselves ready with whatever they had. Weapons nearby, generating lost mana, some focus-gathering, whatever – as long as they were prepared for when he came back up the elevator.





    … With a table. A table stacked with rather old but maintained items. Credit Vandrad for that.

    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] BnwAZ5NFairy Heart [Guild-Scale] 6dU5GfU

    The table that Mura brought back up again held metal boxes of the right size for carrying on one’s belt, aided by a sturdy hook on the side. There were various of these boxes, and they were grouped up in 5 piles. Mura clapped his hands just once, and words made with floating sand began writing out the names of each pile in front of them; Smoke Balls, Flashers, Shockwave Bombs, Explosive Charge Lacrima and Mana Crystals. And right behind the table and Mura was another, huge item of interest – it was door-sized, oval, and looked like a mirror frame with no mirror attached. It was also, strangely, built from only vines… old, old vines…

    After everyone had gathered again per his command, Mura explained: “I’ll try and explain well. From what I’ve known, and given by what Lina has just told me from Leonard, our Guild Marks are magically connected with the giant Tree in the middle of Tenrou Island – some of you noticed your Guild Marks acting strange, after all, so… I believe that something or someone has manipulated the Tree to make us all lose power.” Mura would’ve felt more comfortable letting Vandrad do the talking, but he didn’t think that Vandrad would want to lead a topic about an area and a Tree that Mura himself knew more about. Again, not much literature was dedicated to researching and figuring out the Tree – only observing it.

    “I don’t know as much about the Tree as I’d like to, but…” Mura paused for a second, looking down at his hands leaning on the table in front of him, “Some of you may know already, but the island’s one of our homes. Just like the town here. And it’s the home of Fairies too – actual Fairies, that is. They enchanted the entire island with many spells to make it impossible for seafarers to locate it, but… maybe that wasn’t enough. Or maybe I’m being paranoid.” Safe to say, if it was just some natural short circuiting of the Tree’s magic, then these items in front of him were unneeded, but…

    He did sense something earlier. Something very brief, but also so… malicious.

    “Here’s the deal – we’re going to check up on the Core Tree in Tenrou Island and figure out what the issue is. If we meet combat, I’d like for all of us to be ready despite losing quite a bit of mana, so-” Mura began holding a hand over each pile of equipment, “For those of you who don’t regenerate mana quickly, here are Mana Crystal Lacrimas. Nymara, you should take a few with you as well.” These small Mana Crystal Lacrimas were round in shape and violet-blue, and by eating them, any mage would have their mana reserves filled up by a notable amount of external mana coming from the crystals.

    The reason Mura adviced Nymara as well, despite her being a Dragon Slayer who could eat fire and achieve the same results, was due to it being able to help her as a shortcu- argh, she’d figure it out herself, one way or another. As long as she took his advice.

    “Smoke Balls are right here, and next to them are Flashbangs, and here are Shockwave Bombs. They’re all small in size but large in effect, so use them.” He would then hold a hand over the last pile in the middle. “These are Explosives. They release a burst of harmful magic upon being thrown, akin to grenades. Each box has two of varying elements – light, shadows, lightning, fire, ice, water, and air. You can use them for surprise attacks, and for you three Slayers-“ He made eye contact with Akemi, Menka and Nymara, “You can eat these as well, if need be.” At last, he’d point a thumb back at the mirror frame.

    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] 7ixhqhp

    “This is the portal to Tenrou Island. Take what you need, then get ready to go through the portal here to arrive at the Marble Shrine area where the other portal is,” he explained before the mirror frame made of vines began to manifest a huge condensation of mana at its middle, expanding to all corners of the vines and ripping a hole through space akin to Aven’s entrance from earlier. No signs of dangers at the other side now… all there was were orange woods, marble floors and old, broken pillars.

    “Akemi, if you would be so kind, could you go first and scout the area around the portal? Report back as soon as things are clear, then we’ll all regather on the other side,” he’d then ask of her. Akemi’s magic was just so ideal for these types of tasks, since she was the best at discretion in the entire damn guild and also just their greatest silent knife. She had the lowest chances of being spotted by potential ambushers on the other side, and she could definitely hold her own and secure the portal’s area for the others to enter safely.

    Mura would then make his way towards Menka of all people – he had a feeling that she wasn’t the biggest fan of this ordeal, but he had something specially made for her in his hands. A sort of metallic plate of armor, protecting one’s belly – it looked like a modernized take on a Midijin sash, emblemed with a golden pendant holding Fairy Tail’s symbol.

    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] Q8TNBpD

    “Menka… I know you’re not a fan of open conflict, and I hope I’m just being too paranoid. But I sensed danger earlier, so I’d like for us to be safe… here, simple and minimal armoring for a flexible fighter such as you. Well-enchanted, tough and sturdy, and should increase your strength by quite a lot as well,” he explained before handing her the Metal Sash as he called it… it hadn’t gotten an official name yet.

    Mura would oversee the others and their next actions – the items laid forward were numerous, but with this many members present, each couldn’t carry more than two or three of each category of items. In the meantime, he called back to Aven:

    “Hey, Aven… if you have any more questions, you can ask me now.”

    WC: 1958
    Personal WC: 3567
    Total WC: 10,967

    OOC: Here's a quick rundown of the events, a TL;DR if you will:


    • After some brainstorming with the message Lina (smol blonde daughter of Leonard) brought to him, Mura called for everyone to gather inside the lounge near the elevator for briefing.
    • Mura explained that their Guild Marks are connected to a huge tree in Tenrou Island called the Core Tree. It might be natural causes, but Mura sensed extreme hostility at the time that his magic was siphoned, so he's being a little extra.
    • There's a table in front of the elevator with Equipment - check them out under "Guild Supplies" in this link. Two or three of each is allowed for you to bring with you. The portal to Tenrou Island's Marble Shrine is also brought up via the elevator.
    • Akemi, Mura's tasked you with scouting the area around the Marble Shrine - the shrine-looking area in Tenrou Island where the other portal is located - with your Magic before the others enter. At the moment, there are no signs of ambushers nearby, so you can just tell that to the rest.
    • Menka, Mura got a new piece of Armor for you. You're not going to war in only a night dress, okay? Forgive me.
    • For the rest of you, gear up and enter the portal after Akemi's approval. Aven, talk with Mura for a bit, but the others can also come and ask for further questions IC if you want.

    Well... shit. Aven's attention was torn away from Mura, as half the guild sprang into action, up in arms and ready to pound him into the dirt. He visibly inspected himself: pitch black armor, a matching cape, and a roiling cloud of dark matter particles around his left leg, to boot. If his Takeover had been fully set off by the previous imbalance, the look was probably complete with a twisted set of horns. He sighed. Hindsight is twenty twenty, I suppose.

    Nymara was the same as ever, of course, so it was no surprise she'd jump the gun. Even under normal circumstances, he wouldn't consider it out of the ordinary for her to challenge any random person to a fight. It'd certainly been a while since he last stretched his legs in a real battle, but that duel would have to wait until another time.

    Looking around, there were a few faces he didn't recognize, as expected. Unexpected, however, was Vandrad's approach, the latter's hand crackling with a power Aven knew could normally tear through his armor like paper, demanding an explanation. More concerning, however, was the lack of pressure emanating from the Ace's magic. Has Vandrad been affected, too? If the source was the Guild Mark, it must've been the entire guild who suffered from the drain! That would mean... they thought he might be the perpetrator? Several others joined Vandrad in the pursuit of answers, including a young man dressed oddly similar to a pirate. At the very least, Mura and Akemi recognized him: other than Nessa and Lili, they were two of the few who'd seen this form. Well, them and the soldiers of Pelgrande, but he didn't think any of them would cherish the memory. His Transcendant form wasn't the most welcoming sight, after all; though, that didn't lessen the pang of guilt he felt when a small child hid behind Mura, nearly quaking at the sight of him. Power has it's price... it was only a matter of time before the piper demanded payment. This was only one of the burdens of his family's legacy.

    Still, he reckoned his next few words were going to decide whether or not he grew a smoldering hole in his chest. Forcing himself to relax into the gentle smile many would recognize him by, he chose his words carefully, his voice still accompanied by a distant, empty echo. "My apologies, everyone. I would've arrived in a more suitable attire, given the choice, but I'm afraid this is all I can do to remain conscious." He held up his left hand, showing the now faded Fairy Tail Guild mark, his smile slowly dipping with concern. "My Mana's been all but depleted, drained away by some unknown force. The source seemed to my Guild Mark, and so I returned from the Forgotten Realm for answers. I'm as much in the dark as all of you."

    Luckily, it seemed that Mura had exactly what Aven was looking for. Tenrou Island? That's the sacred ground of the Fairy Tail Guild... Aven had never been to Tenrou Island before, that he could recall. It wasn't a topic they discussed often, but as Mura explained further, the pieces began to fit together. If the Guild Mark was tied to one Locus of Magical Power, any disruption could cause an imbalance in the wizards tied to it. Aven was lucky enough to only partially rely on Magic Power as reserves for conversion into Dark Energy.

    Aven watched as Mura summoned a portal to Tenrou, ordering all wizards to mobilize immediately. It seemed that whatever Mura assumed had 'played with' the Tree, it wouldn't be friendly. The order reminded him of Elysium's attack on Fairy Tail, and the destruction of their Guild Hall... and also the state Mura had been left in the last time. At the thought, another torrent of dark particles began to encircle Aven's right leg, his Dark Energy steadily rising in intensity. Mura was certainly stronger than before, but after having battled and watched Mura for so long, Aven knew one thing for certain: Mura was no duelist. Aven clenched his fist to relieve his stress, and then relaxed, letting his Takeover build unimpeded. He'd left to master Dark Matter, and now that he had, he was no longer a danger to his allies in close proximity. This time...

    A black tendril formed from the particles surrounding Aven, extending toward the table and retrieving one of the Mana Crystal Lacrimas, delivering it to his hand before dissolving and rejoining the cloud. Aven approached Mura, his steps leaving a trail of black particles lingering on the grass. "I'll ask my questions along the way, because this time, I'm going with you."

    Thankfully it seemed it wouldn't take long for the young firebrand to connect all the dots. Her restraint bought her enough time to hear Mura's confirmation that this man wasn't a threat, despite his menacing appearance and suspicious timing. Her eyes widened slightly in surprise when Mura claimed this man was Aven, and Nymara simply turned back to give the armored wizard another stare. She had met him once before on the day she joined the guild, though he admittedly looked and smelled different back then. Nymara had no idea what his magic exactly was, so this must've been it! Of course, as soon as Nymara realized he wasn't a threat the flames around her hand disappeared and a wide grin formed on her face! "OH Aven! Long time no see!" She'd say with a laugh, switching up her attitude almost instantly, "Why do you look so funny?" She'd question, tilting her head and scanning his appearance with her ruby gaze. "You know this wizard, my lady?" The armored exceed Lucky would ask with curiosity. "Yeah! Aven and I go waaayyy back! Saw him one time when I joined the guild!" She'd beam to her companion, though Lucky only sighed in response. "Well, I am at least relieved he is not the source of our troubles.." He'd grumble, still feeling drowsy from the mana drain. Unlike Nymara he couldn't consume fire to regenerate mana quickly, so the cat was left to absorb it naturally from the air.

    Things seemed to take a more serious shift when the Nymara noticed a small girl run up to the guild master, mentioning something called Tenrou island? It sounded familiar, though Nymara couldn't quite remember from where. Lucky on the other hand only observed the interaction in silence, his mind trying to work out the details internally. When the ghost piped up to inform everyone of the conditions of their guild marks Nymara quickly turned her head, trying to get a good look at her mark before remembering she was wearing a coat. Though it was clear from everyone else that something was off! The emblem looked blurry and fuzzed as if it was barely there in the first place! "How in the- Who's going through this much trouble to screw with us?! No amount of magic drain will save em from what they're gonna get!" Nymara would yell, getting noticeably more irritated as the situation progressed. Though thankfully it seemed after some deliberation Mura had also decided the time for action was nigh.

    Nymara would join the rest of the guild inside, standing with her arms crossed as Lucky perched himself upon her shoulder. She was already getting revved up when Mura mentioned a fight, but now it seemed like it was getting even more interesting! As Mura began to explain the situation to them the Dragon Slayer found herself getting more invested. The guild master had theorized some unknown enemy threatened the heart of their magical power! Nymara would be lying to herself if she said she understood fully how it worked, though it appeared as though each member's magical power was somehow threaded with their guild mark, and in turn, the great Tenrou Tree on Tenrou Island. Funny, she didn't remember hearing about this part when she joined though the girl didn't have time to dwell on the past. When Mura began going into more detail about the specifics of the island Nymara would look at Lucky with a curious glance, though it was clear he was just as surprised as she was to hear about this island's magical properties. Apparently, some members of the guild were well aware of this fact, as it had always been a seat of power for the guild. "Real fairies?? You think they grant wishes?" She'd ask, failing to keep her curiosity in check before her exceed companion shot her a glare, reminding her why they were there.

    The plan seemed simple enough! The guild was gonna take this mysterious-looking portal to the island and investigate the core tree itself to find any problems. What caught Nymara's interest however was the vast array of magical items set before them, the girl watching them with intense curiosity. "Useful, but dangerous." Lucky would warn his companion. "I recommend you give great thought into each use, as they seem to be in limited supply." He'd continue, though both of them glanced up at Mura when he recommended she take some mana crystals as well. "I won't say no to free magic power!" Nymara would say in response, grabbing one of the crystals and tossing it playfully from hand to hand. "I hope it tastes good!"

    Mura soon began to give them the run down on the other devices, telling them they were bombs of various elemental magic. That just sounded like music to Nymara's ears, hearing that fire bombs were included! "Aha! With this much heat I won't be running low any time soon!" Nym would say with confidence, taking two of the flame bombs for herself. "Be careful you spare the magic forest from that heat." Lucky would say, though it was likely his advice was being ignored by the excited firebrand. When Mura began to delegate a specific task to Akemi Nym looked at her with a confident grin. Knowing her mentor well enough Nymara figured anything waiting for them at the other end of that portal wouldn't be a threat to the twilight dragon. "Save some for the rest of us to pummel though! I'm itchin for some action!" Nymara would say to her mentor, eagerly awaiting her approval for the rest of them to enter the portal and explore the island.

    A sigh escaped the kitsune’s lips as the atmosphere seemed to darken around the area due to Mura’s warnings. She despised conflict so greatly and the thought of just going back to sleep after she’d eaten was a far more tantalising idea. It didn’t seem like one that she’d be able to get away with though and instead she, albeit reluctantly, walked away from the grill and over towards the equipment that Mura had laid out for them. Most of the items were unknown to her and she wasn’t all that interested if she was honest. Weapons of war were of no interest to her and the blonde didn’t even give the explosives a glance until Mura spoke about them being edible for slayers, causing her to change her mind and take a couple of the lightning one in hand. They’d make for a nice snack later and would be handy if she was forced to fight.

    She was rather surprised though when Mura approached and handed her a sash of some sort. It was made of some tough material and there was a touch of magic about the equipment too. Clearly it was made to amplify her powers and without any real thought, she’d place it around her mid section. It felt quite comfortable but it also had the side effect of causing her rather sizable bust to stick out a touch further, much to the kitsune’s amusement. She looked up at him just as he was moving on to someone else and joked. “Was this gift your idea or Kyuken’s?” He’d know exactly what she meant and despite the seriousness of the situation, she did what she always did and tried to make light of it all. Her kind lived a long time and Menka had faced battle more times than she could count. It was rather old to her by now and she’d never been fond of it anyway.

    While everyone else was preparing for battle in their own ways, Menka would tap into her magic and create a cookie, a chocolate chip flavoured one which she then devoured. As soon as she did so, her magic power began to rise, a preparation tactic for what was to come. She had a cookie for any occasion and could boost whatever she needed to but since she didn’t really know who her opponent would be, she’d just play things by ear although thinking about it…wasn’t that what she always did? She never had a plan as such and just went with her gut.

    She’d then take a few moments to test out just how well her new sash worked with her combat style, summoning her lightning claws and slashing the air a few times, moving with the natural grace of her species. The sash didn’t hold her back at all and even when she performed a more acrobatic manoeuvre, she still didn’t feel any restriction of movement. A fine piece of gear indeed and the kitsune was most definitely grateful for it. She’d have to show her appreciation, once the fight was over.

    It looked like everyone else was also aware of what had happened, even if there were questions about the how and the why. The guild mark was an obvious target of suspicion, given that it had begun to act up before the sudden energy drain. The timing was too neat for it to have been a mere coincidence. And as Akemi had been expecting, Aven's sudden arrival meant that many of the guild members were suspicious of his timing as well, including her apprentice. Vandrad was taking care of that, which meant that Akemi could leave Aven alone while she did her rounds amongst the other members of the guild.

    Thankfully, it looked like nobody had been affected too badly. Everyone had been afflicted with a sudden draining of their energy, but that was the extent of the damage. Problematic in its own right, but at least there weren't any critical conditions, even if most of the people present didn't share Akemi's convenient methods for replenishing her stamina.

    "It's better to not speculate with what little information we have, but it looks like something has managed to connect to our guild marks." Saffron's question was a fair one, but unfortunately, Akemi wasn't in a position to say more, since she didn't know more. She shook her head when the blonde offered to help. "Wait for the guild master to tell you what to do. And try to recover as much energy as you can: I doubt the situation will end with just this interruption."

    As for the others... well, they were more focused on Aven and Mura than anything else, so Akemi would leave it to the guild master to answer their questions and figure out what to do next. Although not everyone waited for more information: the raven-haired assassin watched as Leonard left on his own, leaving the girl that accompanied him during the barbeque to tell Mura that they needed to head for Tenrou Island.

    Given that Tenrou Island was the guild's secret, and the fact that the attack had come through their guild mark (as proven by the fact that Aven had also been affected by it despite being in a completely different location), it wasn't surprising that the veterans of the guild would cast their suspicions in that direction. Akemi couldn't argue with the logic either, although she did keep her mintopen for other possibilities. Tenrou Island might be the guild's secret in that it was inaccessible to everyone who wasn't part of the guild, but that didn't mean nobody else knew about it... or the fact that guild marks could be more than just a little bit of paint.

    She'd voluntarily broker own guild mark after the drain to prevent it from being used against her again, so even as other people discovered that their marks were now fainter or blurred hers remained pure white and useless. It made little difference, although it did tell her that whatever it was that had happened, it had bigger consequences than a momentary energy drain.

    While the others left for the elevator she'd first finish absorbing all the shadows and dark in the area, resisting the temptation to eat the light as well to speed up the process. She'd gone through a lot of effort to hide her light abilities, and she wasn't going to ruin it just because she was hungry at the moment. Once she'd gotten as much energy out of her surroundings as she could she headed for the elevator as well, in time to hear Mura explain the situation and the tools available to help them out. Given that she had no intention of utilising any of the tools she had little interest in that part of the speech, aside from the shadow lachrima that were put on display together with the rest.

    To scout ahead... Akemi nodded, but rather than immediately heading for the portal she walked over to the table displaying all the lachrima and picked up one of the shadow orbs. "I'll go ahead, but before that, I need everyone to make some space in front of the portal." There were ways to scout without charging in blindly. She glanced at Nymara. "Save that kind of request for when we know what's going on." There might only be a single entity messing with the tree, or Mura's speculation was completely off and Tenrou Island had nothing to do with the current situation.

    Once everyone had given her some space Akemi would move to stand before the portal, holding the shadow lachrima in one outstretched hand as she focused her attention on what lay beyond the portal. It was a bit trickier doing this through a portal, but at the end of the day a portal connected two locations, so the principle should remain the same.

    The lachrima in Akemi's hand began to emit dark smoke as she tapped into the energy contained within. Slowly at first, but then steadily increasing until the entire lachrima was converted into malleable dark magic, which spread out in front of Akemi, swirling, dancing, condensing. Curls straightened and wisps solidified until a three-dimensional map was spread out in front of Akemi, displaying what lay beyond the portal in shades of black and grey.

    "It doesn't look like there's anything out there, but I'll go check in person. Keep an eye on the map for the signal that the rest of you can follow." The shadow screen only showed physical objects, so while it was a good precaution it wouldn't substitute for actual scouting.

    Leaving the shadow screen to hover in front of the portal Akemi stepped towards the mirror... and disappeared even before she'd touched it, her form turning dark for an instant before fading away. Having rendered herself invisible she stepped through the portal, immediately shifting into a random shadow in the vicinity in case some kind of trap was set to trigger for the first person to step through the portal. Nothing happened, and as the assassin surveyed the area with all her senses she didn't find anything suspicious either. No magic sources beyond those that could be expected from the Marble Shrine, no unusual sounds, no unexpected scents. She'd been here once before, and she could tell that this shrine at least was the same as before.

    Even if she couldn't say the same about the rest of the island.

    Still, better to be thorough. There were plenty of shadows for her to utilise, and the assassin made sure to shift to every shadow within earshot of the shrine to inspect the area from as many angles as possible. From the looks of it, this place hadn't been touched in some time, as only Fairy Tail members could come here normally and there wasn't much reason for them to visit the island on a regular basis. The tree towered above everything else on the island, of course, but the shrine was far enough away that it fell outside of Akemi's inspection.

    Once she was as confident as she could be that the shrine, at least, was safe, Akemi would return to the portal and stand next to it while reaching out with her mind to reconnect with the shadow screen on the other side of the mirror.


    On the other side of the mirror, where the rest of the guild was waiting, the shadow screen would ripple before reshaping itself into an arrow pointing towards the portal. After several seconds the arrow would then shoot forward and into the portal, a clear signal that it was time for the rest of the guild to step forward.


    Akemi remained hidden for the moment even as the arrow made of dark magic shot out of the portal, making some simple gestures to have the arrow disperse and the dark magic spread out across the area, merging with the shadows so she could keep an eye on things here.

    She'd only reveal herself once everyone had made their way through the portal, dropping her invisibility before stepping out of the shadow she'd been hiding in. "The shrine is clear, but you're correct that something is happening on this island." She very pointedly did not look at Nymara as she said the following words.

    "I'd suggest caution."

    There’s no fair or unfair in battle.
    ( There is only victory or in your case, defeat. )
    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] RJtajUnz_o


    Vandrad’s eyes remained locked on the demonic creature in front of him, even as the rest of the guild scurried about trying to understand what had happened. It was only when Mura spoke up, identifying the mysterious man as Aven, a guild member. The former prince searched through his memories and there was an instance, maybe two that he could recall hearing the name and having a face to place it towards. The only one that stuck out was some time ago when Magnus had joined, the man that had once been his pupil. If this was Aven, he was wildly different from the man he was before. Yet that was a satisfying enough answer and as such, Vandrad lowered his hand and dropped his Empowerment in a single rush of magic and air.

    Then arrived another stranger; a young girl that was far less intimidating. She addressed as Mura and as she gathered what courage she had after looking at Aven, she insisted that they needed to go to something called Tenrou island. Vandrad had never heard of such a place but Mura seemed to know exactly what it meant and what was being talked about. Then ever more surprising was Kyuken speaking up, stating that their guild marks had become translucent. With his armor on, it was impossible to tell but after a quick look around, Vandrad could confirm that it did, indeed, seem that some of the markings had lost their vigor.

    What the hell was happening? With all the chaos unfolding around them, it was impossible to track every conversation at once. Instead, Vandrad stayed beside Mura and listened in on the guildmaster as he spoke to his draconic spirit about Tenrou and then mentioned a Tree being messed with. With his mind made up, Mura addressed Aven shortly before stepping forward and getting everyone’s attention. He insisted that everyone needed to go to the lounge and be prepared for battle.

    Well, that was far more interesting than a barbeque anyways. Vandrad walked over to Saffron, reaching under his armor and pulling out a handful of small devices. "Take this,” he told her. "It’s a communication device. Put it in a pocket or something. Once it’s turned on, it’ll attune to your brainwaves as well as the other devices and allow you to communicate with others without having to worry about speaking.” A cross-combination creation between Mercury’s technology and his own.

    With that, he headed to the lounge with both his pupil and the rest of the guild. Once there, he was met with a table full of weaponry and battle items. They were all too familiar; useful devices that had been locked away and left to catch dust until Vandrad had come upon them. Refusing to let the guild use weaponry that was antiquated, the former prince took it upon himself to update everything within the barracks up to code and even beyond. He’d not been able to adjust the levels and abilities with some of his newfound knowledge but… that would be more complicated to explain down the line. Once there, Vandrad simply found a spot in the corner and crossed his arms, watching and waiting for everyone to settle.

    Once they had, Mura went into his explanation. Apparently their guild marks were connected to a tree on Tenrou Island and it seemed that someone had launched an assault on their source of magical strength. Mura didn’t know much about the tree but he did understand that the island was a sacred place as well as the home of the fairies that worked within the guild’s walls as well. It was meant to be protected by enchantments but it seemed that hadn’t been the case, or so Mura reasoned. "Unlikely,” Vandrad interrupted as Mura wavered on his assumption, his knowledge as a soldier in the Bellum army coming to the forefront. "If any of the guild’s enemies learned of Tenrou’s connections to our strength, that would be a viable, pertinent target. It is also most likely a trap; meant to lure us in while we’re weakened. Like cutting the power to a town and waiting for the guards to investigate the power relays.” A fairly common tactic used by military personnel. Unfortunately for those cutting the power, they were vastly underestimating Fairy Tail’s overall and individual strength.

    Mura gave a short explanation about the items in front of them before Vandrad stepped up and tossed several similar devices to the one he’d given Saffron. They looked like small black discs, practically the size of a mint. "These are silent communication devices. Put them in pockets, attach them to your clothing -- they will adhere to most surfaces. They will connect to your brain waves and allow you to communicate with each other while we’re there.” With his piece added, Mura continued and gestured to the portal that would take them to Tenrou. He asked that Akemi go and scout ahead and while he did, Vandrad went over and grabbed several mana crystals, taking some for himself and offering the rest to Saffron.

    "It’s about time we get a real test to see how far your training has taken you,” he remarked, keeping the moment light and airy. "I haven’t heard any rumblings of anything on my side so I imagine this has nothing to do with anything involving myself.” By the time he had finished speaking to her, the mirror gave a small ripple, indicating that Akemi, who had gone through, had returned and given them the greenlight to move ahead.

    Vandrad moved through and stepped out of the transference, looking around instantly. After doing a quick scan of the immediate area, he turned to Mura. "If we split into individual scouts, our enemy will be able to group up on us. At the same time, if we move all as one large group, we provide a clear target for the enemy’s strongest weaponry and give them ample opportunity to take us all out at once. We should split into pairs; that way each person can have one another’s back and it’ll allow us to scout out and locate our enemy faster.”

    While everyone was waiting for a explanation for the appearance of the person Mura quickly interjected and explained that this was Aven. Aven? Do you know that guy Julius? Julius shrugged. If I knew who he was I would've given him a warmer welcome. Before anyone had even the chance to react a young girl ran up to Mura in quite a hurry while she kept calling him uncle. Uncle? I didn't knew Mura had a niece? Julius sighed. Why don't you stop asking questions for a bit I'm sure most of them will be answered in due time. Julius sat back on his chair and continued to eat the food from his plate while still keeping his ears open to listen in on the conversation. The little girl tells Mura to go to Tenrou island. Tenrou island huh... Interesting! Julius had a small chuckle of delight. You've heard of this island, Julius? Julius grabbed a handkerchief from the table and cleaned his mouth of food scrapes. Well of course! It's a legend among pirates! It's a island that has never been really explored by any old sea farer. Apparently only Fairy Tail guild members are able to access it! Does that mean that there might be treasure on the island? Possibly, but even if we went on a little treasure hunt there I wouldn't dare to take anything with me. Tenrou island is considered Fairy Tail territory taking anything from that island would be considered stealing from the guild. I cou;dn't handle the thought of stealing from the guild especially from Mura Julius took a sip of his drink. Right... But how come only Fairy Tail guild members are able to visit the island? Julius shrugged again. I don't know probably has something to do with the founder of the guild but never mind that now.

    At that point Julius could hear the panicked voice of Kyuken telling everyone not to panic due to the fact their guild marks are slowly fading. Julius wasn't in a hurry to check his mark. You're not going to check? Julius looked annoyed at Squable. Listen dear as you know my mark is on my thigh you can't possibly expect me to pull down my pants right here right now do you? Squable looked awkwardly away.

    Mura then called everyone to head back towards the guild. You hear that Squable? That is the sound of a opportunity! Let's go! Julius got up from his seat rather quickly and walked back towards the guild hall. Oi! You sure this is a good idea?Are you still fatigued? Squable was a bit concerned since the sudden mana drain had somewhat of a impact on him. Relax Squable, after being in contact with that water and having had something to eat I fell much better now!

    Back in the guild hall everyone that was at the barbeque had gathered around Mura. He quickly was to point out everyone had to prepare for battle. A table full of weapons was ready for the guild members to equip themselves with, Julius was mostly intrigued by the flasbangs. Before Julius grabbed them he first listened to what Mura had to tell the guild Interesting it seems the little girl's name is Lina and she has some sort of connection to Leonard... Julius didn't give it much thought further since it had nothing to do with the situation at hand. Mura further explained the cause of the sudden mana drain and strange things happening to everyone's guild mark might have something to do with a tree that is on the island. That part in itself wasn't that interesting to Julius it was the thing regarding the fairies living on the island that caught his attention. So that explains why no one has every managed to get to the island by normal means, it's because of these devious little fairies no one can even find it... Hmmm that solves the mystery of the island.

    A portal appeared and Mura sked Akemi to check it to see if the area around the portal is safe, meanwhile Vandrad gave a extra briefing and a communication device to everyone. Julius applied the device on the inside of his coat. He grabbed a couple of flashbangs and walked up to Mura. Julius reporting for duty captain! Julius gave Mura a playful wink Aye sir! Squable also reporting for duty captain! Squable gave Mura a salute.

    Mura’s little speech to all of them had Takumi standing up straighter, listening carefully to everything he had to say. The supplies were interesting enough, he supposed, but he was paying more attention to the plans revolving around fighting. There was a time when he’d been a massive brawler, but now he was simply a support mage. Listening to the plans for grouping was especially important, and he was relieved to see Vandrad had suggested pairs. He was much better in groups of two than he was alone, and having a partner to move with would make things a dozen times easier. He still had to throw a little quip at Mura when he mentioned slayers, though. “Actually, Mura, you have four slayers now that I’m back. I don’t blame you for not knowing since I was gone for a while, but I’m a god slayer!”

    That said, he turned his focus more towards Vandrad. “I don’t know how the rest of you feel, but I’d definitely feel better in a pair. Slayer I may be, but my magic is more supportive than anything. I’m better in a position where I can focus on healing and defense.” he mused aloud, brows furrowed in thought. The communicators were another interesting thing, that made his abilities a bit less useful. He wasn’t sure he liked that, but took one anyways, attaching it to his collar as he stepped forwards to grab two of each of the smoke balls, flashbangs, and shockwave bombs. He took only a single Mana Crystal Lacrima, but another two of the water based explosives. He wasn’t sure he’d use them, but in a pinch he could easily use them to recover some mana, at the very least.

    Stowing the supplies away, he decided to pipe up with another statement. “I know the communicators are more convenient, but with everybody’s permission, I have an alternate form of communication I can utilize in the event we find ourselves unable to speak aloud or our communicators destroyed. I have telepathic abilities, and should you consent to me forming a mental link with each of you I can use it to pass and receive messages without having to say a thing aloud. This only works for thoughts aimed directly at me though, so don’t worry about me seeing or hearing things I shouldn’t!”

    Folding his hands in front of him, the small blonde found himself standing relatively close to his friend. “Oh, Mura, one more thing. I’m under no illusions this will be safe, but if I die I’m coming back to haunt you specifically. My children better be well taken care of! There’s no way I’m letting them grow up anywhere but with the guild now that I’m back.” he said, only half joking. There was no way he’d leave his children willingly, but if he ended up losing and dying here today, there was no way he’d allow his children to be alone. He wanted to guarantee they’d be safe, growing up in the guild he loved.

    OOC Note: I’m asking permission for Takumi to use his telepathy on all of you! Please PM me or put a little note in your post if you’d rather I didn’t, please.

    Post by Mura Kensho 24th September 2022, 8:55 am

    There was little more that he could inform them from now on. He’d done his best to mobilize them and prepare them for the sacred island ‘expedition’ as it might have turned out to become. Deep inside, he prayed that he had done a good job at preparing them… his guild was so diverse. It was taxing to tend to each one’s ways, so the best thing was to let the rest of the events be dealt with them on their own.

    Menka, especially, was a special case due to her relatively docile nature. Despite her strength, she had made it clear multiple times throughout her stay in the guild that such things as combat were undesirable. A lover, not a fighter… that catchphrase of hers echoed in his head. It felt as if he was forcing her into labor, but… she was of great help to the guild. He hoped that she would forgive him when all of this was over… and given by her ever playful tone, that seemed to have been precedented.

    “It was definitely mi-“

    “My idea. I take it that you’d like to take a few measures to prevent from getting scars. Like me.”

    His tone was dead serious, but… turning his clearly blushing face away, Mura kept an eye on the map that Akemi manifested with her Shadows, just like she did down in the crypts of Desierto. Man, her Magic was too developed compared to certain other Slayers in the guild – clearly due to her cautious, almost OCD-level of preparation drive… well, could he really call it OCD? He was a hypocrite – many times, he could’ve escaped grave consequences had he been slightly more prepared, so he’d refrain from badmouthing someone like her.

    Nah, it wasn’t really badmouthing… if anything, it sounded like something he could tease her with-

    She wouldn’t like that.

    … O-Okay, nevermind then.

    … Oh, communication devices. Vandrad had reported to him about the completion of those earlier, and they looked far more suitable for duty than holding up your iLac all the time. Mura quickly adjusted one of them to his collar before hearing of Takumi’s alternative way of communication. If they found themselves in the event that their devices broke, then that could be very helpful…

    Mura couldn’t help but faintly smile at the sight of how capable his guild was. It was strange – he never saw them this organized back in the time when his predecessors led the guild. Neither Kanix nor Heero could brag about this, that much he knew.



    “… D-Don’t worry, Takumi. Your kids won’t lose their parent,” Mura reassured the worrisome God Slayer with a pat on the shoulder, “Ah, Akemi’s giving us green light to enter. Alright, everyone, be on guard! Many of you aren’t familiar with the area, so…”

    With that said, Mura stepped in and arrived on the other side of the portal, his feet resting on the Marble Shrine. He had brought a white scroll with him, strapped to his back for later use…

    Fairy Heart [Guild-Scale] Uc4iHL9

    The place, however, and the woods around the shrine looked as fantastical as always – with a cupper tint of autumn blowing across the mild wind and branches stretching as far as the eye could… see…

    There was some gold dust glowing in the air above them. Magic… and Fairy Magic, at that. It was extremely foreboding, but nothing more worried him. The bright, blue sky could still be seen above the tree crowns, and the forest’s creatures quickly scurried away at the sight of them. An unusual greeting, clearly indicating that Mura’s paranoic sensation from earlier landed on the right note – someone had actually found their way to the island…

    And whoever that was, they had quite some issue with Fairy Tail to make it this far.

    Mura decided to ignore the more curious entities – moles sticking their noses out of the ground, hummingbirds seeking refuge inside tree stamps, snakes turning invisible and sliding away from harm’s way and deer galloping to the farthest edges of the island. The strange detail about these animals was that all of them donned the same color and pattern on their fur and scales – mainly black, but with deep-blue lines and dots coated over them.

    And in the far distance of the horizon was the Core Tree, sticking up above the ground and towering every other tree in Tenrou Island… but there was some strange gust surrounding it. Circulating it. Orbiting it like a calm tornado.

    That was when Vandrad’s word of advice caught him – if this was planned, then it was a smart move to lure the slightly weakened members of the guild to the island via this strange incident. He suggested that they split up into pairs, covering each other’s backs and making sure that the enemy couldn’t carpet bomb all of them at once. The shaman nodded, deciding to think of possible two-man teams for the time being…

    Vandrad had tutored Saffron for quite a while now. It was the same case for Akemi with Nymara. Leo was nowhere to be seen, but he would most likely show up on the island when the rest had arrived… and Aven was adamant to stick with Mura this time. That left Takumi – who revealed to possess God Slayer Magic, which the guild hadn’t seen in a while – and Menka, along with the seafarer Julius. Should he have Menka go search for Leonard?

    No, what if she got ganged up? No, no, no, Leo knew the island better than anyone else – he’d be able to take care of himself, and he’d be able to find the rest with ease. Just don’t be reckless, old man…

    “I take it you’ll keep an eye out for Saffron,” Mura replied to Vandrad, agreeing to his plan with a quick nod, “And you’ve hung out with Nymara the most, Akemi. You know her better than anyone else. And that leaves… Julius, you go with Menka. Takumi, you follow me and Aven.” Yeah, that should be fine – this was one of those moments where Mura couldn’t do anything but put his trust in his members and their chemistry with each other. They’d have each other’s backs, after all.

    A single look up in the sky confirmed Mura’s fears once more – they were faint, but multiple magic signatures were present on the island. However, the island itself was oozing with mana from white, glowing wounds on the earth that were beginning to spread ever so slowly – a result of the intrusion, likely. It was difficult to depend on magic sensory alone, but there were a few areas spared from these ‘mana wounds’.

    “Here’s the plan. I need to go to the Tree and shut its magic down,” he explained to everyone, gently stroking a hand over the white scroll on his back, “And… undoubtedly, some shithead is expecting me over there, but there are other-“

    A solid moment of silence showed a rather whitened face on Mura. He shook it off quickly, realizing that he was in the middle of a sentence, “-There are other enemies. I can sense them… a-all over the island…” It was blatantly clear that the island’s atmosphere was affecting Mura in one way or another, and while it was root for worry, his magical signature stayed the same… nothing had tried to take over his mind. However, that only made things more mysterious.

    “I shut down the Tree’s power for a time. That’ll be our opportunity to counter-attack,” he continued to explain his plan, showing absence of whatever had shocked him to his very core earlier, “If my hunch is right, then they’re trying to draw power from the Tree too… yes, that might explain those wounds.” He pointed towards the white marks of mana that were cracking up from the ground in various places; tree stamps, dusty floors, leaves, animals, pretty much splashed all over the one half of the island like snot.

    “I… everyone, I’ll contact you through these devices once I’ve shut down the Tree’s magic. If these enemies draw from it, they’ll just get stronger and stronger, so you should try and stall them out until then. Wait for my signal… and watch each other’s backs. Please…”

    He got nothing more to say – the plan was made clear. He simply made his way through the woods, going straight for the giant Tree in the background of the island’s big woods. Aven would watch over him too, that much he knew… and Takumi would have an opportunity to show how much he had developed. Overall, his guild had the odds in their favor – they were mighty, powerful and extremely skilled. They wouldn’t let their guards down, and they wouldn’t lose…

    S-So why was he so chilled? Why were his bones shaking? He did his best to hide it from them, but it was too cold in the air around him. Whoever had messed with them loathed the guild on a scale Mura hadn’t witnessed since… since…

    OOC: Okay, from this post and onwards, I'll be aiming to split the guild up! This'll likely make things more interesting for each one of you.

    • Tenrou Island is a strange landscape with green and orange woods - however, you should all be able to see disturbances in the air caused by mana flowing out and around the place. There's also what looks like a 'tornado' of mana circling the Core Tree, if your characters aim to look at the distance.

    • Mura is splitting you up in teams per Vandrad's advice! These are:
      Vandrad + Saffron
      Akemi + Nymara
      Menka + Julius
      and a single 3-man team of Mura + Aven + Takumi

    • Each team is tasked with spreading out and 'luring' the intruders away from the Tree, so to speak. Either stall them or find a way to defeat them, even when they got the Core Tree's magic to strengthen them. I plan to have them greet you guys by the next round.

    • Aven, Takumi and Mura are going to the Core Tree directly. Got a Chekhov's gun on Mura's back for later. What happens next will depend on your replies.

    • Tah.
