No fic form because I don’t feel like going to grab it. In other news, who wants to know the Time Master and Observants legend?
If the answer is no than this post is not for you.
So last night I was doing some world building and I got the bright idea to send kasena-a what I had thought up for the Master of Time legend. Apparently it was a really bright idea, because she made it sound legend-like and this was the result. She is a gift.
It is said that there are higher powers than just ghosts, that there are spirits who observe and keep track of all of time and reality itself. Never do they interfere; they have taken an oath only to watch. But, one day, they noticed things were not going according to plan. Those who were meant for great, terrible things lived out their natural lives in a second, as did those related to them. It was then the Observants began to look for a cause of this strange phenomenon. And then, they found Them.
The first time Clockwork heard about the Master of Time, they were physically eight and had just snuck out for the first time. They’d ended up with a bunch of other ghosts- some younger, some older- and followed them as they encountered an old man who retold the legend. Clockwork never heard the end, though. They’d barely reached the middle when Olia, disguised as a normal ghost, had burst in and hurried them away. They’d been left with Coli afterwards, since the High Council didn’t trust Clockwork to not disobey them again.
