EE and RS trying to experiment with combining Eid and runes together? Whether it ends well or leads to mass destruction? :>
“So, like, you hold the shape of the rune in your mind, and just… draw it?”
Elsword had been trying to explain runes to Ain for the past half-hour, both of them wanting to see if they could enhance their powers by using the other’s specialty of either runes or emotions to fuel their magic. So far, neither had been able to get it.
Ain frowned, studying the pattern of the rune Elsword was holding on his palm. Then, ever so carefully, he sketched the same pattern with the light of an Eid.
“Embed it in fire - uh, emotion, I guess? - and tell it to blow up or something.”
Fire. Mut, the Eid of courage. Ain bit his lip and called on the bravery he’d found hidden away within him, and it came surging to the fore, covering the glassy rune with flickering red light and golden bravery.
Elsword grinned. “Now make it do something!”
Do something. Explode, Ain willed the rune.
It shimmered and made a sound like cracking glass. Then a blast of pure energy rocked Ain back on his feet, making him stumble and almost fall into his true Celestial form, flame and bravery mixing with pure destruction.
The smoke cleared.
Ain found himself standing at the lip of a giant crater in the ground. Elsword sprawled on the scorched grass a good five feet away.
Ain rushed over to Elsword, kneeling down beside him and helping him sit up. A choking wheeze started heaving from Elsword’s throat. Ain felt panic for a moment before he realized Elsword was laughing.
“That was epic!” the boy crowed, standing unsteadily. Ain let Elsword steady himself on his shoulder. “Wonder what’ll happen if I combine my runes with emotions, now? Oooh, or if you did a rune with a different Eid-?”
“Rena will kill us,” he said amicably, looking at the spot where they’d probably blasted away a few fluffy creatures along with half the forest. And then, with barely a pause, “Let’s try it.”
LK, RS, IS meet each other at the lost space, Arme, mocchi and apos were there too (The funny one please)
Arme’s eye twitched in aggravation, hands clutching his javelin hard
enough to almost breakit again. He said nothing, leering at Apostasia
and yet another version of Elsword… except… not the one Arme liked.
He sensed corruption from this boy, a very similar one to one of his
“….Elsword.” Arme found himself scowling at the dual wielder.
“Uh…” Infi looked at Apostasia and Arme awkwardly, comparing the two. “I’m guessing you two know each other…?”
“In a better timeline.” Arme gave a look at him.
Sia, is this your Elsword? Corruption certainly follows a pattern in
your timeline, doesn’t it.” Mochi emerged from the time and space
cracks. “I’m sorry~ The monsters were harder than we thought…~” He
chuckled, pulling out two red-haired boys. “And Arme’s knight in shining
armor fell unconscious…” Mochi nudged the one whose eyes were closed
and battered with cuts and bruises.
Arme hurriedly reached to the Lord Knight’s side. “Elsword…!”
“Yeah?” The Rune Slayer stared at the man with the neon-blue hair.
“He meant the more serious one.” Mochi corrected.
mean the dead one, right?” The Infinity Sword added in. “I dunno about
you but he kinda looks dead to me with that stab wound at his chest.”
up-!” The Lord Knight exclaimed, wheezing for breath as he shot up like
a phoru finally being given food after months of starvation. The wounds
appearing on his chest quickly healed, armor looking as if they’d just
“…I stand corrected.”
“Mm… what did I miss…?” The newly revived knight asked, rubbing his eyes and yawning.
“Me.” Rune answered.
“And me.” Infi smiled goofily at the knight.
“And 10 boss fights. I’ve never seen anyone die on the second stage.” Mochi chuckled.
“…Aha.” The knight nervously chuckled, glancing away and frowning. “…Oops.”
“You’ll get better with time, Elsword.” Arme reassured. “This is your first experience with Henir’s challenge, after all.”
“You mean he’ll get better once he upgrades his weapon from a +6 to a +7.” Infi said flatly.
The Lord Knight blushed. “My weapon broke, though…”
“Bahhh, can we stop talking and start moving on?” Rune complained.
actually, I was hoping we would stop for toda-” Mochi started off, but
cut himself off once he saw Apostasia break through the door.
“…Let’s go.” Sia stated tonelessly.
looked over his comrades. “Do any of you guys have a +10?” No one’s
arms raised up. He smiled. A stressful smile. “I see.”
