ep:prophecy

They swore they’d be together forever - they’d take on the world ( universe ) together. But Person A is the chosen one. They’re the one prophesied to save the world. Person B isn’t. And while they were together as children, Person A left when they were barely a teenager to start training. And B? They started training too. Each grew, on two different paths.

B became a leader of their oppressed community, protecting their people and navigating them through the world and its harsh conditions alone.

A grew and trained and after years apart from B, they return, and fulfill their destiny, swooping in to destroy the great evil and save their friends.

They expect B to be happy. They did it. And B is. At least, about the thing being gone. Because after it? After the battle when A goes to talk to them? B doesn’t acknowledge their existence. B pretends A is nothing more than a stranger. And it hurts. Somehow more than any of the obstacles A faced before.

Prophecy About the Origin of the World (세계의 근원).

Each of the priestesses of El know a part of the prophecy, which activates something when all of them gather and recite their part of the prophecy. That something is the ancient Ellian structure in the Distant Ruins.  

When Sasha is asked what the prophecy of the Origin of the World is, she replies with the prophecy is about the location of the Lady of El. This might not make a lot of sense right now but will be explained at the end.

So for this version 2.0 of interpretation of the prophecy, we will assume that the entire prophecy, all 6 parts of it, is about “the location of the Lady of El”.


EYYY what do you know, Everyone but Artea, who think she’s too good to use it, shows the symbol of each “element” that I thought were unvailed in Halted Sun’s Memory.. goddamnit they were in the game for longer than I thought.

Now read the following prophecy and try to figure out what each of them could possibly mean. You already know a lot of things without even realizing it.


첫 번째 기도는 바람. 신의 품으로 인도하는 소리 없는 날개.

두 번째 기도는 바다. 빛의 원에서 잠드는 상처도 존재도 없는 밤의 요람.

세 번째 기도는 모래. 황금 빛의 시간 속에 헤매는 여행자

네 번째 기도는 노래. 달에게 비는 소원과 밤하늘에 빛나는 고요한 속삭임.

다섯 번째 기도는 황혼. 빛나고 불타는 단 하나의 목숨에 도달하는 곳.

마지막 기도는 약속. 태초와 먼미래의 이름, 내일을 향해 열리는 단 하나의 길. 


First Prayer is Wind. Silent wings that guide to the embrace of God.

Second Prayer is Ocean. A cradle of the night, without any wound or existence, sleeping within the circle of light.

Third Prayer is Sand. Traveler wandering in the time of golden light.

Fourth Prayer is Song. A wish upon the Moon and a silent whisper that shines in the night sky.

Fifth Prayer is Dusk. A place to reach a single, shining and burning life.

Last Prayer is Promise. A name of the Beginning and the distant future, a single path that opens toward tomorrow.


Did you read them? Can you figure it out? Seriously, do me a favor and try to figure out what each of them might mean. Things get more interesting if you try to do it too.

The following are my interpretation of each part of the prophecy and so please, take it with a grain of salt.


First Prayer is Wind.
Silent wings that guide to the embrace of God.”

= Ain, the Representative of Ishmael.

First Prayer is Wind: Wind in the world of Elrios has the strength of energy and activity.

“Ventus, Master of Wind: Governs the power of wind that has the strength of energy and activity”

Silent wings that guide: Ain intervenes to guide the El Search Party to restore the El, but his intervention must go unnoticed. He accomplishes this by manipulating and erasing people’s memories. His ability to erase people’s memories is his silent wings. Also it’s worth noting that this is the first prophecy, and of course it would be about Ain, who’s been with us since the very beginning.

Embrace of God: It could mean many things… death, afterlife, another realm…? But in this context I think it means Will of Ishmael, and her desire to “help” the El Search Party to restore the El.


“Second Prayer is Ocean.
A cradle of the night, without any wound or existence, sleeping within the circle of light.”

= Harnier, the Lady of El.

Second Prayer is Ocean: Ocean is the origin of life. It is vast, it is mysterious, and it sustains countless lives. But it is also where hurricanes are created.

A cradle of the night: A cradle is the tiny bed where a baby sleeps and rests, but it’s also a word to describe a birthplace of something. Night… could mean how the world plunged into “darkness” after the explosion of the giant El, lost without the light of the El. Is it saying that Harnier is the origin of the “night” the Elrios is in, due to lack of the original El? Or it simply could mean the preservation capsule Harnier is sleeping in, pointing the direction toward Elysion, where it is.

Without any wound or existence: Harnier is in stasis and has been forgotten by people for 500 years. I think you can say that she has no wound or any existence. For crying out loud, even the priestesses didn’t know she was a real person:

“We’ve actually never met her but through Elesis, it has been confirmed. The legendary El Lady does exist.
- Darkmoon in Ep. 20: Prophetic Mission

Sleeping within the circle of light: She’s sleeping under the watchful eye of Solace in his fortress. Circle of light could mean Solace and his protection…


“Third Prayer is Sand.
Traveler wandering in the time of the golden light.”

= Solace, Master of the Sun.

Third Prayer is Sand: Sands of time. Sand in the hourglass. Sand could be representing time in this context.

Traveler: Solace traveled around the world, looking for a place to preserve Harnier’s body.
Note: I understand NA translated it as adventurer, but 여행가 is a traveler, not an adventurer. Adventurer would be 모험가.

I always asked myself while looking for a place where I can preserve Harnier’s comatose body, and eventually arrived in Elysion; El… why must we rely on such a thing…?
- Solace in Ep. 26: The Past and the Present

“가사상태에 빠진 하르니에의 육체를 보존할 수 있는 곳을 찾아다니면서”
- 찾아다니면서 literally means going around looking for something.

Wandering in the time: What do we hear, time and time again, from doing the Halted Sun’s Memory part of the Epic Quest?

“When Elsword woke up after the fierce battle against Solace, he found himself in an empty white space where nothing could be seen. He got out of the space by following a faint light in the distance but what unfolded in front of him was a memory of someone living inside a time frozen for eternity.”
- Halted Sun’s Memory Dungeon Prologue

My time has stopped on the day we decided to leave the family together, the day when you were chosen as the Lady of El.“
- Solace in Ep. 26: The Past and the Present

You can even say that the entire Halted Sun’s Memory dungeon is Solace’s consciousness wandering in that time. Solace relives the nightmare, from the moment Harnier was taken away from him, his struggle to get her back, to the time when he ultimately fails and put her and the entire world in danger.

The time of golden light: It could just be a poetic way to add bulk to the otherwise short prophecy, I would go on to further interpret “time of golden light” as “Golden Hour”, a term with many meanings, but in a broad sense, it means “the most important or critical time”.

At the end of Halted Sun’s Memory, Solace awaits for Elsword’s decision for the fate of the world. Golden Hour indeed.


“Fourth Prayer is Song.
A wish upon the Moon and a silent whisper that shines in the night sky.”

= Harnier becoming the Lady of El

Fourth Prayer is Song: Songs contain words and melodies that carry emotions, so they are often used to express pathos and joys of life itself.

A wish upon the Moon: This can… have many different interpretations… but in this context Im going to take it as Harnier’s desire to be free of everything and leave the family with Perihart, which ends up not coming true because of…

A silent whisper that shines in the night sky: Ishmael choosing Harnier to be the next Lady of El on the Night of Ishmael. “A silent whisper” = the Goddess’s calling that only Harnier can hear, “shines in the night sky” = the beam of light that struk Harnier’s house, announcing the birth of the next Lady of El. That moment, that exact moment is when everything changed. For Harnier, for Solace, for the world. If Ishmael has chosen a different girl… Would the same exact events happen?


“Fifth Prayer is Dusk.
A place that reaches a single, shining and burning life.”

= End of Halted Sun’s Memory

Fifth Prayer is Dusk: Dusk is the darkest stage of twilight, just before it turns into night. Only when the twilight turns into night can the Sun rise again.

A single, shining and burning life: The El.
I’ll leave you to your thoughts about that one. I don’t think I need to explain.

A place that reaches: The place at the end of Halted Sun’s Memory. If “A single, shining and burning life” is El, then the place to reach it is at the end of Halted Sun’s memory, where Elsword has to decide if he restores the El or not.


“Last Prayer is Promise.
A name of the Beginning and the distant future, a single path that opens toward tomorrow.”

= Elia, the Ancient God of Light.

Last prayer is Promise: Oath, vow, pledge… 

A name of the Beginning and the distant future: The Beginning and the distant future sounds like another way of just saying “the Alpha and the Omega”, the beginning and the end, which symbolizes God, the creator of the universe. In the world of Elrios, this can be describing Elia, the creator of the physical world.

A single path that opens toward tomorrow: … There is one and only one way for Elrios to have a future? A path that Elsword has to choose… for the future of Elrios?

“… Now, it is time. O, the one who has the power and the right to choose the future of the world created by El… which path will truly protect Elrios…?”
“The path that protects Elrios…”
“I hope you choose… the future you want, Elsword.”
- Solace and Elsword in Ep. The past and the present

… Huh.


Those are my interpretations of each of the different parts of the prophecy. Now let’s look at it in a big picture.

First prayer is Wind. Silent wings that guide to the embrace of God.

Ain silently leads Elsword and the El Search Party toward the Lady of El, to fulfill the mission given to him by the Goddess.

Second prayer is Ocean. A cradle of the night, without any wound or existence, sleeping within the circle of light.

They arrive in Elysion, where the Lady of El is sleeping in stasis under Solace’s watchful eye.

Third prayer is Sand. Traveler wandering in the time of golden light.

They meet and defeat Solace, and Elsword walks into Solace’s memory of him stuck in his own past.

Fourth prayer is Song. A wish upon the Moon and a silent whisper that shines in the night sky.

We learn what happened to Solace and Harnier, and the truth about the El in Solace’s memory.

Fifth prayer is Dusk. A place to reach a single, shining and burning life.

The stage is set. It’s up to Elsword to decide the future of Elrios on that floating platform to restore the El or not.

Last prayer is Promise. A name of the Beginning and the distant future, a single path that opens toward tomorrow.

Elia. Elsword decides the future.

…Yeah. It’s what you are thinking of.

Elia = Elsword?

We were misquoting Lashauwn Beyond all along. Alaska just fulfilled the prophecy!

(How could I not make this edit after last night’s elimination? I love Roxxxy but Tati should have stayed 100% based on this week! I hope Roxxxy uses this 4th save as motivation to shine like never before in the next challenge. Rooting for her to step it up because I know she’s better than this. Also, “This is not RuPaul’s Best Friend Race” is one of my favorite things to say in real life situations.)

Lego Movie Prophecy

So my son watches the Lego Movie like ten times a day, therefore so do I. For those of you that don’t know, the Lego Movie is Warner Brothers film about the evil President Business becoming infuriated with the world and how it doesn’t make any sense to him, and therefore builds a giant corporate empire, then assumes political control all to make sure that everyone lives life the way he wants. Doesn’t that sound familiar??

The more I watch it the more similarities I notice between President Business, and our very own ‘President’.
Business tycoon slash president..
Owns huge company that does all sorts of stuff..
Hates like… everything
Uses snowflake as an insult..
Builds giant walls to keep cultures separate..
The list goes on.

So since president business gets the Kragle and takes over the world, 8 and a half years elapse. That’s more than two presidential terms. The plot of the movie focuses around a prophesy, about a 'special one’ who can end President Businesses reign of terror. What if the real prophecy is the Lego Movie itself? What if it’s showing us a future in which Trump, by the time the next election comes around, completely changes the system to allow him to stay in control indefinitely. What if he plans to rule the world and build walls around every country so we all live in ignorant bliss believing everything is awesome when in reality he wants to end the world? What if Warner Brothers really are trying to warn a brother?

We should just get Chris Pratt to talk to Trump, and save us the next 8 years of chaos?

There are hard times ahead but there is also great hope. When time ends and eternity begins, we will see our everlasting future and we will see the brightness of our redeemed souls.

This end times prophecy is from the Book of Daniel. As Christians, we have a responsibility to be familiar with end times prophecies even though we cannot possibly understand all of them until they have passed. I like to hold on to the clear prophecies of hope, like this one.
