Sleeper Ch. 14
Opalius the head Herah, surpreme in her black armor, winged boots and helmet, stood firm at the door, and holding a brilliant smirk on her face that conveyed a sinister vibe that Sky did not pick up in the afterworld from her. The Sleepers, ready to leave and uninterested in getting further entangled in this mess, now too saw Opalius for the sinister being she was— just by her powerful presence alone.
"I Opalius have returned to the very world in which I was borne of the gods." Opalius stated.
Opalius started to step forward into the fane, many of the Light well wishers had steered clear, watching the supreme Herah enter and step out of the glimmering light from the sun high above them. Now as Opalius entered the dark of the fane, her shiny armor remained, but her dark gray— almost black hair, increased in length down her back and turned bright silver. Her footsteps gradually made noise once again, she was no longer floating over the floor so closely.
But Ixora, who studied

Redeemer Ch. 13
Having watched the Herah take the Sleepers to the afterworld to retrieve her son, Ixora took a brief nap, lasting only an hour before she once again returned to the old fane wherein Sky's body lie in repose. With Arthur and everyone she was close to at her side, once again the queen walked into the old structure, her eyes focused on her son's body as it lie upon a marble catafalque, a dark green and mahogany colored spread between Sky and the stone platform. Well-wishers and average citizens of the Kingdom who sat at the pew-like seats that prayed for Sky watched in sorrow as their monarch neared the front. Many of the people, as ancient practice prescribed, reached out to touch the queen as she passed them by, some even the king.
Little did anyone know that the queen hadn't come to merely pray or to mourn, but expecting an actual miracle.
Ixora and her entourage came to the front seats where they had sat earlier in mourning, and they took their seats quietly as the interior of the anc

Redeemer Ch. 12
Following the Sleepers' departure to the afterworld to bring Sky back home, the queen of Lights had resolved to rest finally. Arthur and Madeisus recognized the great danger in the young queen's inability to sleep and rest quietly, and brought her to a stone-made bench in a private chamber of the old fane. Arthur practically had to carry his wife in his arms, she had been able to only drag her feet with all of her exhaustion. Madeisus cleared some old sticks and dried leaves off of the surface of the stone bench seat, and Arthur lay Ixora flatly down on her back only to see that the weary girl had shut her eyes and appeared to doze off into sleep.
"Let's just let her be." Arthur quietly whispered to Madeisus followed by a confident and assuring wink.
Madeisus had accepted the premise that Ixora needed to rest, but her undying fear that the queen was going to try to take her own life just to see her son again would not rub off. Like a recurring nightmare, the thought had become almost h

Redeemer Ch. 11
Sky was now under the care and protection of Arkana, formerly known as Hydrargyrus, and someone that he had never know before. To the young boy, this massive woman was just a protector, much like Krylair who now stood beside Sky and Arkana. Unlike Kryklair, it seemed that this person was physically capable of shielding Sky from Golbi's fierceness. Arkana's arms had wrapped around Sky and only let go of him when they both got back on their feet following the tumble. As Arkana let go of Sky and stood in front of him, she quickly removed her black cloak, revealing the same dark green jumpsuit-laden Sleeper soldier that Golbi remembered in life. Mean-looking, tough as can be, and quicker than anyone else in the room, Arkana was by now the quintessential anti-Golbi in the mind of the late tyrant.
"So, you choose to once again save my boy's life, do you?" Golbi mocked the Sleeper, while she took aim at Arkana. "Golbi will return the favor."
"Stay out of our way, Sky." Arkana insisted, lookin

Sleeper Ch. 10
The unfinished afterworld was Sky's next destination in the afterlife, it was the quiet trap that souls went to when they had unfinished business in life, or perhaps even passed away in traumatic circumstances. Kryklair dutifully took the Itgan child to the realm as soon as they were finished with the dark afterworld, showing that it in fact looked much like the world of the living where everything material was tangible only sometimes. On this side, a darker and ominous version of the living world, the inhabiting souls were merely ghosts and were forced to occasionally revisit their traumas, or worse yet, interact with the living . Each soul had to dwell in their own version of it, residing in the shadows knowing no comfort outside of it. As it turned out, Sky's revisit to the world of the living would be forestalled when he stumbled upon a thick and heavy gray mist.
This afterworld so far was nothing but a bright gray box, it seemed. Krylair and Sky must have been the only ones occupy

Redeemer Ch. 9
The morning following the viewing of Sky's body lying in repose, Ixora and Arthur stood upon a balcony at the south end of a beautiful white-faced stone structure, looking out at the Light Kingdom from two stories about. The old structure, ancient by comparison to others in the area, was the original home of Ixora's ancestors, the Lighten fane which previous rulers called home. Standing with three stories uninhabited, and plenty of bright sunlight to illuminate even the large hollow interiors through old windows— it Ixora's favorite place to be when she wanted to be alone, or from which to give speeches to her people. It was easily bigger in area than the Androy manor in which she and her family resided, and it sat rather dutifully and quaintly near the center of the same village in which the manor lay.
On that day, just after the sun had started to rise, and after the second sleepless night following Sky's death, a weary and exhausted queen of Lights came alone to the old and no

Redeemer Ch. 8
Walking alongside Kryklair in the darkness of the afterworld, Sky stepped into the darkest and most forsaken kingdom one could imagine. Immediately upon entering the realm of the damned, the deepest recess of the afterworld, Sky was overcome with a cold sensation that brought about an anxiety to him. The world slowly revealed itself to be not as dark as black, but rocky and naught but hollow chasms all over. Behind Sky and his Herah protector, the seam that showed the afterworld of sea behind them vanished silently and leaving no feeling of hope for the young boy. Upon the realm of the damned's full manifestation, Kryklair put her hand on Sky's shoulder to usher him alone, through a large and straight chasm of rock.
"This is the dark afterworld?" Sky asked Kryklair.
"Stay by my side, child." Kryklair told Sky without looking to him.
Keeping by the Herah's side as they slowly paced themselves through the corridor of a chasm, Sky looked around, noticing that while he could make out the s

Redeemer Ch. 7
Following the death of grand duke Sky, a period of mourning was ordered not by the queen— for she had been too devastated to even leave Sky's side, morbidly attached to her son's corpse— but by her husband and king, Arthur. For eighteen days the entirety of the Light Kingdom observed Sky's death as a national tragedy and terrible plight on those whose hearts he won just by his eagerness to know them. His corpse was brought to the largest Lighten house of worship, a massive cathedral-like structure so inspired by Human architecture. Ixora and her family regularly attended rituals and ceremonies at the structure, and now the queen along with her husband spent all of their time within.
Then there came one exception where the Light queen, so distraught, took a walk and returned to her soon-to-be-finished tower where she commanded the military. Arthur went by her side, holding her hands as they walked alone down the streets toward the nearby structure. As the royal couple walked

Redeemer Ch. 6
Kryklair had by some means or another managed to effortlessly rip open a portal, characterized with a bright flash of white light, that exposed an entirely new realm to Sky. Like an incinerating seam of light that tore open one reality and revealed another, the portal eventually encompassed Sky and Kryklair while he firmly grasped and held onto her left hand, feeling anxious and hesitant to let go.
"What is this?" Sky asked, looking up to Kryklair who did not look back down at the boy, who was so evidently curious.
"The afterworld of the sea." Answered Kryklair plainly.
To Kryklair's answer, the portal disappeared and revealed to the two a very dark world with a sky full of red and golden clouds that faded dark blue and violent off into the distance. A very dim red sun was visible and barely set or risen over the horizon to their left. Kryklair took a step forward into the realm, with Sky following suit, noticing that below his boots was a soft sand. They had stepped onto a soft sand b

Pitch black. Still air. Things that described what Sky saw as his eyes opened. He still heard the sounds of Ixora calling for him— almost as though she were his mother. Strange to the boy, his world even stranger now. Last he knew, he was on the beach underneath the cliffs from which he descended, hoping to find a mystic that would help him cross over to the other world where he would finally meet his family.
Lying on his stomach, Sky raised his head up and felt an utterly sharp pain in his neck that was tremendous but nothing he could not live with for a short while— it was probably just stiff. The run must have had something to do with it, that part of his rage that carried on. Strangely enough, Sky was unable to move for a moment, and finally his hands pressed against the ground, a flat surface which was dark and colorless. As he pushed away from it to get on his feet, he felt weightless and saw no shadow, which instantly peaked his curiosity.
The light was ambient.

Watchers

I've been reading up the news a lot lately— disconsolate as it may make me sometimes— and I find it absolutely disgusting that gun owners are being referred to as "murderers" now. I try not to chime in too much on political issues, but this is not even funny. I am (for some unknown reason) expected to take seriously people who have no emotional control over themselves and wish to outright repeal the 2nd amendment to the constitution. Gun control is unconstitutional PERIOD. End of story.

Just my two cents on the issue.

Now let Spring commence. :)

I am very curious though. We heard it from Golbi a little, now I wanna hear it from you. What are your genuine thoughts on making my characters (Human or not) as strong as they are (Some with the potential to get stronger)? Does it make sense given the context of the stories?

Dealing with the Golbster is like the dealing with a pissy-mood puppet. Goofy sounding, always sounds bitchy even when she's not bitching. She didn't really change the subject, she just wanted to get in a jab.
