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.”
