Re: Elemental History
Geb smiled a warm smile and the fountains on his shoulders and neck started flowing a bit faster. He turned towards the Complete as she finished the legend and didnt notice Amelia move away. He thought for a moment about the voice he had heard so long ago teloing him it would be alright and that he would live on.

Re: Elemental History
Even before the Complete reached the end of her first sentence, Everett's head had begun to tilt lazily to the side, his face taking on an expression of badly concealed skepticism. Politeness drove him not to look openly sardonic, but the slight raise of one eyebrow, and even a mild roll of the eyes betrayed the fact that Everett wasn't exactly invested in the tale.

It was less to do with being open-minded per se, rather more to do with Everett's grounding in the world of the big city in which he was raised. Perhaps because he was a child of the outer islands, he had always found the folklore surrounding the elements, to be... Unbelievable.

Miaxtra...? Was the only, blithe thought that crossed his mind, with no particular reation other than a tired, quiet sigh.

Floyd frowned. He had indeed heard voiced in the darkness. And now he had a name to go with those voices.

Raijin was excited. Gods and such existing?? That sounded pretty awesome. He was open minded and had no trouble thinking they could exist.

Re: Elemental History
"So, a bunch of early humans were different colors and had ties to an element. kay. Next?" Roy thought to himself. So far this legend fit with his idea. Nothing all that suprising really. A bunch of names were said but they didn't mean a whole lot to him. Roy leaned back until he was laying on the pillows staring at the ceiling. When's lunch?

Re: Elemental History
Reika's lower lip stuck out and her eyes fell to her lap.  She couldn't comprehend what Amelia was doing to be so automatically and unconditionally well-liked.  Maybe it was her innocence, or maybe she was so strongly connected to the element of Light (how Reika figured Amelia was a Light, she didn't know).  At any point, Reika could look about the room and see at least one pair of eyes fixated on Amelia.  Regardless of what caused it, Reika felt some wave of envy, not toward Amelia herself, but toward whatever made the girl so magnetic.  She didn't actually want that sort of spotlight attention, but for a person to pause just long enough on Reika to find her... interesting.

The Complete's legend began, and brought Reika's mind back to where it should've been.  She was here to learn and better herself anyway.  Reika's pulse seemed loud in her ears, and she dwelled a bit on Jeeriyah, who'd been associated with green.  She tried to imagine the god or goddess.  Her parents had told her since she was young about a very general idea of elemental gods and goddesses, but never anything so specific.  She felt special to be in the room, learning things her parents and she had never known.

Re: Elemental History
"These beings discovered their abilities by accident, and called themselves gods and goddesses."  She pauses for a brief breath.  "Nihara, Goddess of Fire. Xian, God of Water. Consteta, Goddess of Earth. Jeeriyeh, God of wind. Ollan, God of Lightening. Miaxtra, Goddess of Light. Synetta, Goddess of Darkness.  Genniya, Goddess of Metal. Ariyia, Goddess of Plastic. Tisotan, God of Sound." She looks around the room with her eyes open. "As you can guess, it is believed that they mated and their offspring mated and we are all descended from the original ten Gods and Goddesses. " She returns her voice to normal. "Primary bloodlines do not exist, as two Primaries bred together since the very beginning. Everyone has the potential of at least two Elements based on the two Gods and Goddesses that represent them. Now, any questions regarding the legend?"

Re: Elemental History
Seamus, upon discovering Genniya was a woman, glanced to his drawing. A slight pout of dissapointment crossed his lips. He shrugged and began drawing a female variation, figuring he could use the male as a blueprint for a suit of actual armor. His grin returned at the thought of donning it himself.

Re: Elemental History
Roy stared up at the ceiling as the Complete continued with the legend, trying to imagine what each of the gods might have looked like. A lot like Geb probably, he reasoned, maybe something inbetween. So they find out they have special abilities and then declared themselves gods... that's kinda vain of them. Don't sound like they are too nice of a people. Roy shrugged before sitting up and looking to the complete. "Where there other humans around when they were? And are they really gods?"

Re: Elemental History
Ash did her best to translate her annoyance and embarrassment into focus. As the Complete continued her lesson, Ash continued to write notes into the metal that now wound its way around her wrist again. The name of the Goddess that birthed the ability that she now possessed she wrote in raised script, placing it on the inside of the steel next to the pulse in her wrist. She didn't know anything about voices speaking to her, but she did want the name of the deity that had allowed her this ability to be close to her heart's blood.

The thought of being able to wield multiple elements was an interesting one, and one she hadn't considered. Would she come to feel such a familiarity with another element, as she felt with this one? What did their voices sound like? She was burning with questions, but now wasn't the time. She was sure the Complete would answer the questions without her asking, in due time.

Re: Elemental History
Noticing that Roy's little outburst had startled the girl sitting in front of him, his eyes had remained on her. He silently wondered if Amelia would try to leave, but it seemed his worries where unnecessary in the presence of the Complete. As he listened to the words of his teacher his eyes returned to her and narrowed ever so slightly. ' So confidence in our own skill is key, which shouldn't be confused with foolish overconfidence. Hence why a test would be a appropriate way to confirm our mastery for ourselves. Though, what kind of test would need such a requirement?

And the gods and goddesses only come to us here to avoid causing possible trouble? If they are worried about that, why do nonelementals exist in the first place? Would make things a lot easier, if we were all the same, wouldn't it? Well, maybe that legend has got some answers...'

With the Complete being the only one, who could provide him an answer at the time, he decided to concentrated on the.. ' Hm? Now this is interesting.

Like a odd habit his attention was driven away from the Complete once more as he watched Geb with great interest. He had no idea that such a being existed in their world, though he supposed that he didn't know enough about it to make any judgments in the first place.

Though, both Geb's background story and the tale of the legend made him think. ' His body couldn't move, but he could still manipulate his element? Odd, I was taught that one needed to be strong in both mind and body to not be overwhelmed by their element. Feels like there is another world, the realm of spirits and gods. It's present, but at the same time it isn't. Kinda like...' Kazuya thought to himself, watching Amelia interact with Geb.

' ...Heh. Very interesting. Wonder when I can meet her.. Nihara.'     For some reason he could feel himself getting excited with his lack of knowing and so much being left to learn and to find out. It was like his inner fire had been ignited, a feeling he hadn't felt outside of training for a long time now.

Re: Elemental History
Cassandra looks at Kazuya with a calm expression. "Fair questions. Well, it is said there weren't any other humans during their time, at least, as far as they knew, and they only knew the center island of various surrounding. They did not explore. When they found out about their powers, they were said to be "young," and as they changed and learned they "grew," and began mating. Over time, some of their children never developed their powers, and some died after a certain amount of time. Time began to be measured in years, since the Gods and Goddesses lived on while generation after generation seemed to live for shorter amounts of time. Certain children didn't develop powers, so they set off to explore the other islands and try to find something meaningful." Her face remains serious as well as her voice, through this extension of the legend.

Re: Elemental History
Simon had always had an affinity for the dark.  On the outer islands people would bully him for talking to shadows.  He didn't tell anyone that sometimes they communicated back.  He didn't want to end up locked up after all.

Simon's face screwed up into a look of confusion as the Complete explained that elemental users had two affinities.  He personally had never noticed an affinity for any of the other elements.  He stared at the floor as he tried to remember something that may give him some clue as to what other element he might be linked to.  Not coming up with anything he looked back up to the teacher.  Could she have be wrong?

Re: Elemental History
Aileen pondered on the Complete's words. At least now she understood that there was a reason behind her desire to understand Light. It also explained many things regarding the way humans evolved and learned, though she doubted the part of the origin story that detailed the origin of all people from the Gods. Perhaps they had lived as humans until they were close to their deaths, before surrendering themselves completely to their elements? Aileen was curious as to what the truth was, thus she wrote down a memo for her to check the Village's library for more detailed information.

Furthermore, due to the scientific discoveries of the more technologically-savvy humans regarding genetics and hereditary processes, Aileen doubted that 10 individuals would constitute a large enough gene-pool to lead to the creation of the human race. Which would either suggest that they had others among them to procreate with, or they were far more liberal in their relationships with one another... Who would have thought her tutors were right to teach her of such things as genes?

Katsu watched and listened as the Complete went over the Legend. Catching the name of his element's God. Ollan...he tried to imagine a guy standing on a mountain shooting electricity about. Looking around it seemed some were more interested in it then other. Just like my old school. The thought raised a couple questions, though they seemed better suited for after the Complete had finished.

Re: Elemental History
Shiro walked into the room, obviously very late. Whoops.

He entered the room just as the Complete asked them all what they thought their responsibilities were win their powers, no one answered. in a low quiet voice, Shiro spoke, "Protect." Shiro leaned against the wall in the back, and just listened quietly as everyone else spoke. When Geb entered the room, Shiro was surprised, but he didn't show it. He watched Geb intently, but only the Complete and Geb, who was probably used to it, would be able to tell he was watching him.

Shiro stood silently as class went on.

Seamus' thoughts blazed through his head as to what his second affinity would be. Huh, electricity would make logical sense because reasons. Right? Right! So next would be that. What was the lightning god's name again? he figured, biting down on his pen. Then he shrugged and continued drawing.

Re: Elemental History
Shiro finally collected his thoughts, which were scattered every now and then. He didn't register that the Complete asked if they had any questions about the legend.

"Rocks. I heard we came from the rocks." Shiro said from the back of the room. He kept his eyes down, he didn't like it when people stared at him. "At least Rock Earth." Shiro moved uncomfortably because he brought attention to himself, despite not wanting to, but also wanting to because he wanted to fit in.

Shiro was very conflicted. He still wasn't sure if he'll be staying here.

Re: Elemental History
[From: Elemental History]

Late, late. Late. So very late. That and her stomach had begun a strike against eating on the run, as it threatened to push whatever she consumed last night as well as her breakfast back up her esophagus. Chry ignored that little delay, as she saw something very alike to her veranda come into view. Just without the dangling ivy, and other aesthetics. That and a row of human beings and-.. a -... Wait what was that thing? It was like a walking boulder, with other weird appendages and. That was cool, did a cushion even do anything for it? Or was it never endingly in an uncomfortable state, not graced with the human advantage of a plump and comfortable buttocks. It was a very convenient thing, oh thank-you ancestors for such boons they graced us with.

Oh, back to the out of breath thing, and the heavy breathing and-.. when was she hunched over panting, hands on knees like this? Well that was a run and a half, she couldn’t even imagine the last time she had been reduced to a heaving wreck after a run. Well, a marathon. One final, forced exhale was added before Chry righted her body. Her chest still reaching for the sky, but less significantly; her breathing adjusting to normalcy.

Stepping into the somewhat roomy glass cube, she immediately slapped one hand against the other almost as if she were praying for thou to not smite her down where she stood. “I am, so, so, so sorry for being so incredibly, terribly, uncouthly-ley-ley late!” Practically having begun squinting, as to avoid the gazes of those in the room, she finally peeked. Lowering her hands, as she innocently bobbed her shoulders, her lips pursing as she felt a crumb on her upper lip. “Can I, uhm?” She gestured to a seat, quickly and discretely disposing of the little social faux pas of a crumb with her tongue as she took a cushion to one side.

Folding her legs over one another, she took it upon herself to shut up for now. This was just not a way to start things out, this was just silly. Into the black book with her! Toast crumb littered clothing and all. That was an exaggeration, but she felt as if she might as well have been dipped in tar before thrown into a cleanly hospital ward. How were people to think of her already? She’d have to correct all those skewed first impressions, how disastrous. Why must the lull and temptation of a comfortable bed be so desirable, huh? Who made that rule?

Re: Elemental History
The Complete watched over the class as various students seemed to muse to themselves about the legend and the Gods. She chose to be silent as the students commented to themselves and seemed to ask themselves questions, trying to formulate opinions on the reactions of the students.

And then a student ran in, bowed, her voice too loud, and tried to sit as if nothing happened. "Well... It is okay that you are late today, I suppose. You missed the one lesson we had today, though. Class should be over soon..." She looks to an intricate steampunk clock on the wall to her left (the students' right) to check the time and therefor the accuracy of her statement. "Do not be late tomorrow." She says gently but seriously after looking back to the girl.

A moment passes before the sound of a clock striking interrupts the Complete's warning stare. "Alright, dear students, proceed to your primaries. Some of your classes are within the building, but some are out in the forest. Those teachers may come get you, if you do no know your way."

Re: Elemental History
Kazuya listened closely to the Complete, taking in every bit of information she was giving him. ' Hm... so the god's came into being, realized their abilities and created us humans with similar abilities. This would imply that our powers are of divine nature. Hm.. would explain why elemental animals are considered sacred.

This would make our powers sort of the connection to the gods, which is why we need to have a certain amount of mastery, before we are able to interact with them. Even though it seems that our powers are connected to our souls, we still have 'normal' weaker bodies. So I guess father was correct when he told me I needed to train my body too, if I wanted to be able to utilize my elements full potential, even if it is a hassle sometimes.

Though I doubt that that goes for all of us.'
Kazuya realized as he took a glance at Geb. Hearing a unfamiliar voice behind him, the blonde decided to listen to Shiro to see what he had to say. ' Pretty shy for such an big guy. ' Kazuya thought to himself, noticing that the other wasn't daring to make eye contact with anyone. Though, since he tried to participate, it would be rude to just leave him like this right?

" Well, doesn't sound like the ten gods created this place, so since they had to come from somewhere, I guess us coming from earth isn't so far off." Kazuya replied, before he turned back towards the front where someone new had decided to join class, which seemed to be over at any moment now. From what he could tell Crysanthe seemed to be the cheerful, maybe a little hyperactive kind of type. He didn't really dislike that though, as it usually made things more interesting.

'Fire Primary next, huh? Kazuya thought to himself as he felt himself get excited. He couldn't help but wonder what his teacher would be like. Though there was another matter he would have to take care of first. " Amelia. " the blonde said, trying to get the girls attention away from her new friend for a moment. " What's your element?"

Re: Elemental History
Sat, crossed legged contemplating the deep meanings of existence Crysanthe was torn from her thoughts, those plates of silver peering into the ocean blue. A split second passed, dejectedly she bobbed her head in confirmation. Well, she couldn’t promise anything but at the very least she would attempt to make it on time. That was enough, right? “Again, I am so sorry.” Her tone solemnly apologetic, searching her addressee. Damnable comfortable beds, heh. That and late night reading-... but they were so juicy, word and context clutched at you with a vice like grip and you were enthralled in mountains of black upon white.

‘Proceed to your primaries’ “Huh?” Blinking, thoughts giggling as they skipped and hopped into the depths of her mind. “It’s over? Already?” Once more, her voice fell flat, dejected as a large lengthy sigh passed her lips. Rocking herself backwards, her shoulder blades met the floor as she unwound her legs, now left sprawled as air left her chest. “Bleurgh.” Right, this was an unfortunate problem. With few solutions.

Back against the floor still, she tucked her knees into her chest using that momentum to rock her forwards. Crysanthe pushing at her heels abruptly, lifting off the ground an inch before settling down with a slap of leather boot against the ground beneath them. “So!” Exclaiming the phrase, as if to draw attention she rubbed one hand against the other. “Who doesn’t have a clue where they’re going like me? Cause I’ma creating the wagon for the clueless, plausibly riding solo.” Bobbing her shoulders, a grin bloomed. A glint of pearly teeth as she about faced, marching out into the open. “For adventure.” She idle mindedly said aloud, the corners of her mouth widening a little at the phrase.

Re: Elemental History
Roy, still debating the whole story of the gods in his head, watched with mild interest as a girl suddenly ran in to the room panting, apologized and stole one of his pillows, only for The Complete to finish the lesson and dismiss them all. The girl then stood up, loudly proclaimed that she had no idea of where she was going and marched out of the room.

Slowly Roy reached in to his pocket and pulled out the map of the school grounds they had been given where each area was clearly marked as to its purpose. Taking note of the building used for Water based studies, Roy stood and with a wave began moving to the door.

"Dont forget me come lunch time!" He chirped.

Outside he saw the girl wandering aimlessly in a circle. Watching for several moments, he debated offering to help when a figure swept down and introduced themselves as the Teacher. With a shrug, Roy waved to them and continued on to his class.

Re: Elemental History
Everett was staring blankly up at the ceiling, when the realisation that class had ended hit him. I hope no one noticed me space out. He thought off handedly, whilst collecting himself up off the floor. Before leaving though, Everett cast a cursory glance over the others. Politely and somewhat tentatively, he asked with a small smile. "So, anyone else heading to the light class?"
