Born of the Sea, Staring into the Sun

They are born of the sea, the Guardian Drakes of the Sunny Shores. Born of the sea, staring into the sun. As their eyes ignite from the brilliance of day, their flames burst forth, patterning their blue scales with gold.

Magic weaves itself into wing shapes on their backs, into bits and pieces of decor around their forms, into a halo of a crown declaring their status. It covers them in its embrace: energizing, glamouring, clarifying.

In the end the Guardian Drake is draped in magic — channeling, breathing, radiating the glow — and is ready to leave the depths of the sea to embark on their journey to the Sunny Shores. To guard, defend, protect. To illuminate.

In the Realm of Frost

winterarrives3bs

Every winter is born in the Realm of Frost, condensing from the nights of old, their lingering breezes and gusts of cold air. Some winters barely catch a touch of frost, others pack themselves full of snow. But all of them need to be broken free before they are born.

winterarrives2bs

The Frost Daughters estimate, evaluate and finally decide when a winter is ready to be freed. They keep an eye on how cold its sphere becomes, how active the glittering blue lights are, how big it grows. 

winterarrives5bs

When they feel it is ready, all it takes is a touch and the frost cracks open the shell that held the cold in check and the winter is ready to begin.

Dragons Dream

dragon-whelps-1bsWhat do dragons dream of? There are many theories and suggestions, many answers even from the drakekin themselves. Some claim that it’s gold, some say conquest, some higher planes of magic, perhaps simply the joy of flying.
dragon-whelps-2bsIt may or may not be all of those things, but one dream always returns: the one where they are whelps once more, just specks of magic floating around within their very own plane of slumber, the one where they live before they are born to a more physical form.
dragon-whelps-3bsThey remember their guardians and caretakers, the warm glow of golden magic that they so hard try to reproduce in their hoards. They remember the humanoid feminine beauty, one of the first things they ever see and therefore try to recapture.
dragon-whelps-5bsThey dream of the gentle sway of flora made of magic, feeding their existence with each radiant spark of colour. They remember fluttering their small wings, floating on the currents of arcane energy.
dragon-whelps-4bsWhat do dragons dream of? Gold and magic, beauty and flight. Dragons dream of beginnings, dragons dream of endings, dragons dream of eternity.

Calling the Celebrants

touch-of-blood-4bs

We have been invited. Every year the invitation arrives, every year the curtains are drawn aside to reveal doorways, every year the Sound of Life rings in our silenced ears once more. It calls, it beckons, it pleads. Just like it always did. Just like it always does.

touch-of-blood-2bs

Each of us celebrates the return to the Land We Once Walked On. Some of us simply step through, others sail in with more impressive means, some slink and slither, some arrive with a bang. Some run through the streets screaming, some hiss softly in the passing October breeze.

touch-of-blood-1bs

It does not matter how we celebrate, what matters is that we all do. For one night, one glorious night a year, all the chains are broken and we are free. Free, and dancing amongst you.

The Wings of Vanitas

vanitas3bs

Every year the new form takes her by surprise. She knows it’s coming, she can feel the change, the pull, the call, the sheer excitement of anticipation, but she never manages to guess what she will be once the magic in Selidor finishes its work. Some years she grows scales, some years she has a tail and some years she spreads wings to take to the suntouched skies. This is one of those years.

vanitas2bs

This year the wings are made for preening, not for flying. The skies did not call her up, instead all the flowers on the ground invited her to flourish next to them, to match the splendor. Every step stronger, every twirl more luxuriously delicate, Vanitas finds herself within the stunning sceneries, finds herself as a part of the whole, spreading her feathers not to fly, but to adorn the glory of magic even further.

The Source Seeker

abysscollector3bs

The flight to the abyss is a long one. It’s mostly a lonely, cold flight through various realms and empty spaces where the only light in existence is the one you carry within you. It is a test: how long does your light hold out against the dark, how persistent is your spirit glow?

abysscollector2bs

The ancient structures that were once mushrooms growing from an asteroid to another mark the way in the end, pulling you to the flow of inspiration at the source of all magic, nourishing your abyss-drained soul. Nourishing, fulfilling and healing until all the obstacles in your journey feel just a distant memory and there is only the glorious Now of Potential and Possibilities.

abysscollector4bs

The Magic of Inspiration is the rarest of energies, always challenging to seek, eternally rewarding to find.

The Memory of the Sea

pearlmemories1csEach pearl is a memory. Some are sparks of joy, leaping within the waves, meeting new friends, swimming in sunlight. Some hold sorrow, carry moments of loss, loneliness, despair. They form within the Sea as all its children experience life. They form within the Sea and the Sea never forgets.
pearlmemories2csWe bear them for her, we beings of starlight and waves, foam and eternity. The pearls wrap around us, moment by moment, heartbeat by heartbeat. We carry the life of the Sea in all its rich beauty, we laugh with dolphins, we weep with whales, we remember the brief flashes of light before the darkness descends, we treasure the long years of turtles, we feel it all.
pearlmemories3csThe Sea is alive, and she never forgets.
