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.

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.

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.

Born of Starlight

Frost spirits are born in small globes of ice, slowly formed of snowflakes and a touch of bright stars. When they open their eyes, the stars are the first thing they see, so their light will spread through the little spirit, filling it with the only glow that can pierce the wintry darkness.

New snowflakes begin to form around the spirit, created out of the cold starlight, dancing in joy and celebration. Some of these flurries spread out and fall until they condense into a new globe of snow-glow, a new frost spirit.

When the frost spirit is strong enough to break free, they will simply move through the ice globe for there is no capturing light. In mere moments the sphere is but a bauble in their hands, a small trinket that they send out into the skies to create new spirits.

Once free, the frost spirit will embrace the cold air, dancing between the stars and the wintry earth, spreading the starlight on the black ground and dark trees, covering them all in sparkling white snow.

The Call of Winter

She was once a daughter of summer, a child of growth and warmth. Beautiful like a sunny day she caught the eye of Winter, who seduced her to step into the silence, into the realm of ice and snow.

There were attempts to save her, of course, but not before she had tasted the berries, red as the blood in her veins. Not before she had bound herself to the realm of her captor.

Did she know what she was doing when she took a bite? Did she know she’d be forever trapped to travel between the seasons? Did the cold light of winter tempt her to stay willingly? She will never tell.

Never tell how it was a relief to drop her garments and duties, the busy sounds of life, the diverse excitement of all things growing and needing her attention. Never tell how the strength of the blinding light called to her with its single-minded focus.

Called to her until she happily lost sight of everything else and stepped forward to meet it, to embrace it, to be caught in its arms. Seduced.

With the outfit name like Persephone I simply had to do a more season-focused twist on her story. Less about Hades and more about Persephone as the explanation for seasons existing, and even more about her own choices within the situation.
