How To #Build An #Anchor - #Ice #Climbing!!


Mountain Guide Isabelle Santoire, shows how to Build a Bomber Belay, so have your ice screws at the ready!

4

Imagine: Pretending to be a man and joining the Night’s Watch, eventually causing Jon Snow to fall for you.

A/N: This was supposed to be an entry for @that-was-not-supposed-to-happen’s Disney challenge, it’s a Game of Thrones and Mulan crossover, however, I was not able to submit it in time because life got in the way, I still wanted to finish and post it though. A lot of this is not going to follow the plot of Game of Thrones, for example I know that Cersei doesn’t have a cousin named William, but I did what I thought would fit the story. Anyways, ENJOY!

Warnings: This is a Game of Thrones imagine so there is some violence!

Y/B/N = Your Boy Name (as in the name you choose to use to disguise yourself)

Another braid, another flower, you sigh as your handmaiden styles your hair, “Please stop moving Lady Y/N.”

“Why is this necessary Mary, I don’t wish to please Lord William or his family, I don’t even wish to get married, so why must I get ready for them,” You groan, you were the fourth child of House Y/L/N, and your elder sisters were both happily married, you however, were not like them. You did not wish to marry a nobleman and live a peaceful life of royalty, you had always wanted to be a warrior like your older brother.

“Your mother and father wish for you to marry Lord William. This will be perfect for you mi’lady, he is the cousin of the Queen, you will live a wonderful life.”

“Father and mother do not want me to marry him to give me a better life Mary,” Mary pins down your last strand of hair, then sits to face you with a confused expression on her face, “They want my younger brother Edward to marry William’s sister, and the only way the Lannisters will agree to that is if I marry William.”

“Mi’lady-”

You turn away from Mary, and look at your reflection in the mirror, “You know that that’s the truth Mary, I’d never pass a perfect bride, or a perfect daughter. I’ve always been the strange one, I’ve always been the daughter they wish they never had, and now’s their chance to send me away. If I were to show who I really am, I wou-I would break my family’s heart.”  

“They love you very much mi’lady.”

“I’m not like my sisters Mary, I’m an imperfect girl, I can’t live a perfect life.”

“Y/N, mother is calling for you, the Lannisters are almost here!” Your sister called as she entered your chambers.

Mary urges you to get up, “We must go Lady Y/N, we do not want to upset your mother.”

Your family stood at the gates of your home, as the Lannisters approached. Your mother frantically looks around to find you, you rush down the stairs, praying to the Seven Gods to protect you from falling in your pathetic dress.

“There you are Y/N! Cover up those scratches on your arms!” You mother scolded, gesturing to the scrapes and scars on your arms from years of fighting, “And stand properly Y/N, you are a lady of the house Y/L/N for heaven’s sake!”

“Yes mother,” You sigh, pulling a shawl over your arms.

The Lannisters finally reach you, and one by one you greet each other. William approaches you and bows, he takes you hand and places a light kiss on it, “Greetings my lady. You look beautiful.”

“Thank you Lord William,” You respond, William is incredibly handsome, and any normal girl would feel insanely giddy if he greeted her in such a way, but you felt nothing.


The next few days go by, and you’re forced to spend time with William. It’s not entirely bad, he’s a very kind man, but you couldn’t be yourself around him. Your brother, Edward, on the other hand was really falling for William’s sister, so everyone was counting on you to impress William.

You were currently practicing your sword skills in the woods by the riverbed, hoping that no one would find you. You hear footsteps approaching you from behind, and in force of habit, you quickly turn on your heel and point you sword out, “Easy there!”

“Lord William! I-I…” You drop your sword, feeling at a loss for words.

“Lady Y/N,” He pauses, trying to collect his thoughts, “I did not expect to see you like this, I-I didn’t realize how…vicious you were.”

“I’m sorry, I don’t know what to tell you.”

“Well, I guess it’s okay for you play around like this sometimes.”

“Play around?” You asked, feeling slightly upset by his choice of words, “William, I’ve been training since I was a little girl! I’m not playing.”

He chuckles, “Training? What would you need to train for my lady?”

It’s now or never Y/N, just tell him, maybe he’ll understand, you know he likes you! You sigh, “I want to be a warrior William.”

“W-what?” He looks genuinely confused, “You can’t be serious Y/N?”

“I am.”


“LEAVE. I WANT YOU TO LEAVE MY HOME AND NEVER RETURN!” You have never seen your mother so angry. William refused to marry you upon learning how you feel, and the Lannisters decided it would be best to leave. Edward was heartbroken, and the rest of your family refused to even look at you.

“Fine mother, I’ll go,” you spat venomously, “and I swear to you, I will never come back.”

You rush up to your room, and grab your knife. You stare at your tear stained face and slice off a strand of your hair, then another, and another, until all of it is shoulder length. You strip out of your horrendous dress and begin wrapping a long strip of cloth around your chest, hoping to make yourself look as flat as possible. You slip into your brother’s clothing and emotionally blackmail Mary into helping you escape.


You spend the next few days marching north, you finally reach the Wall and within the following week you have taken your vows and become an official member of the Night’s Watch. Your struggle, however, has not ended. Every night you go to bed relieved that no one discovered your secret, and every morning you wake up with the fear that today might be the day they find out.  

You make your way out of the food hall, it was your first official day of training - up until now they were just trying to figure out what you were and were not good at - you were a good fighter, but apparently you weren’t good enough. You see the men gathered outside, you’re a few minutes late and from what you’ve heard, the trainer was not very lenient.

“And you must be Y/B/N, glad to see that you could join us,” He chided.

“I’m sorry,” You look down at your feet, he’s quite attractive…stop it Y/N!

“Since you clearly think you’re too good for this, take a sword and fight with me,” He throws the sword in your direction, and you catch it. The other men stare hungrily, waiting for the fight to begin.

He swings his sword at you and you duck away, you were good, but you’d never gotten into an actual fight like this. You hear a few men laugh, “Get him Snow!”

Snow? As in the Jon Snow, infamous bastard of Lord Eddard Stark? You heard rumors about him joining the watch, but you never thought you’d be fighting against him. He takes your moment of distraction, to punch you and throw you to the ground.

You sit up, coughing as you try to catch your breath, and you wipe a small trickle of blood off the side of your mouth.

“Pathetic,” Jon mutters, before deciding to continue with his usual lesson.

By the end of the day you were sore and completely out of breath, “Alright men, the last task of the day will be climbing. Everyone get your equipment and begin.”

You tilt your head up to see the top of the wall that you’ll be climbing, that thing must be nearly 100 metres high…bloody hell! You take your ice axe and strike the wall, it barely goes in, that would never hold. By the time you finally lodge your axe into the wall, most of the others are already at least 20 feet up. Determined to catch up to the others, you climb up and lodge your axe a bit higher. You’re about 10 feet off the ground when the axe comes loose. Before you know what’s happening, you go tumbling to the ground, you let out a feminine scream and groan when you hit the hard ground. As your vision refocuses, you see Jon standing above you, he gives his hand and the look on his face shows exactly how disappointed he is, “Get up.”

“I-I’m sorry! It slipped and…”

“Enough. You have no hope to become a Ranger, just leave Y/B/N.”

“But-” Before you can finish, Jon has already turned around and is dismissing the others.      

No! No Y/N, you did not come all the way to Castle Black for this, you did not leave your family and future to become a steward! As everyone walks away, you march back towards the wall, take your equipment, and attempt to climb once again.

Night falls, and you are nearly at the top. A couple more feet Y/N, come on! Your body screams from exhaustion, but you continue. Finally, you reach the top. You sit on the edge of the wall and nearly cry from happiness.

The men who work the night shift circle the ground below you, and Jon walks over to speak to one of them.

“Snow!” You shout, “Am I still too pathetic to become a ranger?”

He stares up at you in shock for a moment before his face breaks into a charming smile, causing you to smile cheerfully as well.


“Men!” Jon calls everyone to attention, “A group of Wildlings have crossed over to our lands and are acting as a threat to our people. I will be leading a troop of Rangers to fight.”

You have only been training for a few weeks, and though you have become one of Jon’s favourites, you do not expect to be taken along on this trip, so when your name is called you’re taken aback but overjoyed at the same time.

The fight is in full force when you notice a Wildling sneaking up behind Jon with an axe in his hand. You rush forward and block the blow with your shield a second before it has a chance to hit him. Jon quickly turns towards you and shoots you a grateful look before continuing his fight.

Eventually, the fight ends. Most of the Wildlings are dead, and a few have fled. Jon walks over to you, “Y/B/N, what were you thinking jumping in front of that axe? You are the craziest man I’ve ever met, and for that I owe you my life. From now on, you have my complete trust.”

You smile at him, but your moment of happiness is short-lived, “Y/B/N! Watch out!”

You spin around to see what’s happening, and you’re met with a dagger to your stomach. You cry out in pain, and fall to the ground. With a swift movement of his sword, Jon beheads the man that stabbed you, and he’s instantly by your side, “He’s wounded! Get help! Y/B/N, hold on.”


You are woken up by a dull pain to the side of your stomach, you look around and find yourself in some sort of tent. You see the shadow of two people talking outside, and suddenly Jon walks in. You get up, and your blanket slides off your shoulders, Jon’s eyes go wide, you look down only to realize that you are in nothing but bandages that are tightly wrapped around your chest and torso, showing off every curve of your body.

“Jon, please! I can explain!” He looks away in disgust.

Peter, a man who’s hated you from the moment you joined the Watch, bursts into the tent, “So it’s true!”

He pushes past Jon and takes your arm, roughly dragging you out of the tent, he throws you to the ground as the rest of the men surround you, “I knew there something wrong with you! A woman!”

“My name is Y/N!”

He scoffs, “A woman in the Night’s Watch! This is treason! You’ll surely take care of this, will you not Snow?”

Jon looks down at you in disappointment, he sighs and takes his sword out. You look away, at least you get to die as yourself Y/N. He draws his sword back and drops it by your knees. You look up at him in confusion, “A life for a life. Now my debt has been paid.”

He turns away from you, “Jon…”

“Move out men!” He calls before mounting his horse.

You watch as the men recede in the distance.

“What did you expect?” You ask yourself out loud, “They’d see that you could fight, and take you in with open arms? Jon was right… I’m pathetic.”


You make your way back to the wall as it was your only way back home, when you hear two men approaching, “If they only knew, that was just the smoke before the real fire starts up. Those bloody fools will never know what hit them. We distracted the Night’s Watch long enough to get our people into the surrounding villages, their land will be ours in no time!”

You stand in shock, this was a part of their plan! I have to warn the Watch! When you finally approach Castle Black, you are met with disapproving stares and whispers. You walk up to a close friend of yours but even he turns away, “Matthew please, I must speak with the commander, it’s urgent!”

“It’s best if you turn back, you are no longer welcome here,” He says, the betrayal he’s feeling is evident on his face.

“Please, just…just listen to me. Once. Matthew, I’ve been living here for weeks, you’ve become one of my closest friends, have I ever done anything to hurt you?” He stares at you in silence, “Just hear me out.”

“Fine, but this will be the last time.”

“The Wildlings have planned to raid our villages, the fight that took place earlier was only a distraction. I’m going to help, if you believe, then please, send help,” With that, you mount your horse and head off towards the nearest village.

As you approach the village, you see a man holding an axe to a young boy’s throat. You slyly approach him, and point your sword towards his back, “Drop your weapon or my sword will go right through you.”

He laughs, “You don’t want to fight me girl, stand down.”

“I said, let the boy go,” You hiss venomously.

“And I said no,” With one swift motion, you push your sword through the man’s back, he cries out and falls to his knees, “You filthy bitch!”

Ignoring his final words, you crouch down next to the fearful boy, “I won’t let them hurt you. I promise.”

“And we’re not going to let anyone hurt you either Y/N,” You turn your head to see Jon approaching on his horse, followed by Matthew and other men of the Watch.

“Jon, you came!” You smile.

He walks up to you and places his hand on your shoulder, “I was wrong to judge you Y/N. You are very brave for a woman.”

“Thank you,” You blush.


After you final fight in the village a year ago, you were sent back to your family. After hearing of your bravery, your eldest brother had decided to take you in, you trained and fought alongside him, and no one pressured you to marry anymore.

You woke up one morning and heard a familiar voice as you passed by the balcony. You looked down and so none other than Jon Snow talking to your brother. Blush crept up your neck as you ran down the staircase to greet him.

“Jon!” Jon and your brother turned to you with smiles, “What are you doing here.”

“As you probably heard, my father and brother, have been killed, I left the Watch and reclaimed Winterfell.”

“My brother has told me about how you bravely defeated Ramsay Bolton and his army, I meant, what are you doing here?” You ask, gesturing around yourself.

“I think it would be best if I told you Y/N,” Your brother answers, “Lord Snow has come here to ask for your hand in marriage.”

You blush harder and look down, Jon adds, “But your brother was telling me that you were not interested in marrying anyone.”

“I never said that!” You say defensively, “I just wanted to wait for the right man.”

Your brother chuckles, “So, are you saying that you would like to marry Lord Snow?”

“I-um-yes,” Despite the cool air around you, your face burns furiously. Your brother mutters something about how your mother would never believe the news, and rushes off, leaving you alone with Jon.

“It’s really nice to finally see you again Lady Y/N.”

“You as well Lord Snow.”

End.

How To Place #Ice #Screws - Ice #Climbing!!


Mountain Guide Isabelle Santoire, teaches some Ice Screw Placement Technique for Ice Climbing.

Persona Chart Series - Interpreting The Axes

Okay so in the last post I talked about interpreting the Person Charts of our planetary placements. In this post I will talk about interpreting the axes in the chart - meaning the Ascendant, Descendant, IC and MC.

The chart’s axes or angle represent different faces we show to different people, the Ascendant being the face we show to others on a daily basis, the IC being the face we show to our family/people we consider family, the Descendant being the face we show in our personal relationships and the MC being the face we show in our career and on social media. 

In that sense we can also interpret the axes the way we do the planets (in being a separate person etc).

However, the angles also represent different areas of life that we experience, so when we look at their persona charts it’s helpful to read the chart like a map of these experiences, as if these experiences are lives themselves within our lives. 

For the purposes of this, especially in the ASC and IC persona charts, Sun and Moon can represent the role of the parents as well as their other representations. 

  • Ascendant Persona: Our immediate environment after being born, relationship with our surroundings.
  • Descendant Persona: Our life within our relationships, legal matters, our private life
  • IC: Our childhood, home life, heritage, hereditary traits
  • MC: Our career path, our end game in life. 

The above are just a few of the things that we can look at these persona charts for to help uncover hidden information in our natal chart. I find the angles particularly interesting to interpret because they represent 4 very different experiences that we are bound to encounter in life. 

What to look out for in each Persona Chart

Ascendant Persona Chart:

  • House position of the Sun and its aspects, this will show us where in life we feel we express our Ascendant the most. Can also show us the role of our father in early life.
  • The ascendant, can indicate the nature of the environment we were born into, adds onto how we express ourselves.
  • Position of Saturn, can indicate hardships experienced in early life
  • IC/MC axes, can show us our early needs in contrast to how we developed into childhood. 

Descendant Persona Chart:

  • House position of the Sun and its aspects, can affect how we feel about partnerships with other people
  • Asc/Dc axes, can show how we are received in personal relationships as well as how we handle legal matters. 
  • Pluto position, where we need control in our personal relationships/private life
  • Moon position, emotional motivation to act the way that we do privately. 

IC Persona Chart:

  • House position of the Sun and its aspects, can show how we felt during childhood on a personal level, perception of the father during childhood
  • Saturn position, what held us back during childhood
  • Moon position, perception of the mother during childhood, emotional stimulus
  • Venus position, where we tried to find love as children, what we were taught to view it as
  • IC/MC axes, can show us lessons we were taught in childhood, how we grew from it

MC Persona Chart:

  • House position of the Sun and its aspects, aspects of life we want to incorporate into our line of work.
  • Ascendant, how we appear in our line of work, in the eye of the public.
  • IC/MC axes, links between our childhood and our choice of career/how we present ourselves 
  • MC, area of interest in our career
  • Moon, emotional ties to our choice of career/why we present ourselves in public the way we do
  • Mars placement, our drive and motivation
  • Saturn, lessons we’ve learned that led us to our chose career. 
i was kind of hoping to have more done but like ... I cleaned and farmed a shitton in KHuX

priorities!

Victor washes up at the rink in a hurry, or as much of a hurry as he can and still look nice. He brought a suit in this morning and he got Yakov’s grudging permission to lock his skate bag up in the office safe, so he scrubs down under the stinging, lukewarm spray of the locker room showers and shaves as best he can before the sink. He splashes on aftershave and cologne and carefully does his eyeliner and mascara. He loves making himself look nice for his Yuri.

“You smell like a badger,” says little Yuri, banging his locker closed with extra viciousness.

Victor is in too good of a mood to bother even teasing little Yuri. “You don’t even know what a badger smells like,” he says.

“They smell like your nastyass cologne,” says little Yuri, irrefutably. “Gross.”

Victor’s Yuri loves Victor’s cologne, so Victor just smiles patronizingly at little Yuri and says, “At least it’s not Axe.”

Little Yuri, who has a spray can of Axe that he secretly douses himself with every half an hour, turns bright red. He opens his mouth, closes it again, and then says, “I hope he sneezes all over you!” and stomps off again.

Victor finishes dressing, chuckling quietly to himself.

How To Place An #Ice #Axe Like A #Boss: #Ice #Climbing!!


Mountain Guide Isabelle Santoire, guides us through some Basic #Technique for Placing Ice Axes.

Altean! Lance with a twist (part 2)

Omg!!!! I was expecting so many notes of the first part, and now that post is almost to 1,000 notes!!!!!!!! So I gotta give you guys part 2 as a thank you! I hope you enjoy!

So when Lance and the team find Allura and Coran, it’s definitely a surprise to Lance, who didn’t even know that his people had a monarchy, or that his mother helped in destroying their home world and with it, the Alteans. He never really thought about how different his mother and he were from the Galra, he never thought about what might have happened to his people, or why he and his mothers were the only ones he ever saw. But he’s definitely thinking about all that stuff now, trying to figure out so much about it all.

They don’t really have time to talk much as they have to protect the planet they are on from Sendak, who thankfully doesn’t recognize Lance (at first >:)). So the team goes out and gets the other lions and defeating Sendak, pretty much following the plot of episode one. Lance thinks that it will be really easy to hide himself from the others.

That is, until they start training together as a team to try and figure out how to form voltron. It was hard for him to hold back when it came to the gladiator, since he has fought many of these since he was a child. And the fact that it’s only he first level makes it even harder. I mean come on, it’s he beginning level and the others are getting their butts whooped, Lance is trying to make it look like he’s just as bad as the others without actually lowering himself that much. He ends up taking a hit for Shiro and gets thrown across the room.

And when they tried to do the mind meld thing, Lance was just blocking everyone left and right. Not wanting anyone to even catch a glimpse of his real family, he thinks about the ones who adopted him, and his drive to protect them, but besides that, he didn’t let anyone into his head hole. He was really glad that Pidge was the one that stopped that training tactic, not wanting to make it obvious that he was holding back. But he’s sure he gets a couple of curious looks from Shiro and Hunk.

After that, he excludes himself from team bonding, especially when it came to the mind melding device. Whenever anyone would talk about their families, Lance would barely participate in it. He would hide away in his room whenever he wasn’t needed, and if he found himself alone in the same room as Allura or Coran, he would make some part of excuse to leave. It definitely raised red flags for everyone. They just couldn’t understand why Lance is holding back.

Then the attack on the castle of lions happens, and Lance saves Coran from the explosion, getting himself seriously hurt as well, so much so that he slips and reveals some of himself to Coran, before his instinctive reflexes makes him revert back to human. Coran didn’t see his full true form, but he knows for a fact that Lance is Altean, and from the looks of it a very battered one. So pretty much Coran and Hunk go to get the crystal, Allura and Keith go to the arusian village, and Pidge and Shiro stay back in the castle to keep an eye on Lance, who is stuck in a perpetual nightmare state where his mother and Zarkon found out about his treachery and hurt his human family as a way of punishment.

Of course Sendak find them and now that he can get a closer look, he can see that it’s Haggar’s son in disguise. He calls out about how he’s a traitor to the empire and how Haggar would be “so glad” to have him come back home. Shiro thinks that he’s talking to him, not to Lance, and adamantly fights to keep Sendak from breaching the castle. Sendak does take over the castle and is very cautious about both Shiro and Lance, as he has seen how Shiro fought in the arena, and Lance’s tactical and fighting skills are rumored about all through out the empire. He knows better than to leave those two unguarded, even if they are both unconscious.

But if course, the calvary arrives and beats Sendak and regains control of the castle. (Hurray!) they put Lance in a pod and wait for him to heal. This is when the others find out that lance is actually Altean, not human. Everyone are trying to figure out how that is possible, asking themselves how Lance got to Earth, and how he survived the destruction of Altea. Coran is not freaking out as much as the others, having guessed that Lance was hiding something about his true origins, but the fact that he’s a full blood Altean is still freaking amazing!

When Lance gets out of the pod, he is bombarded with questions from the team (mostly Pidge and Hunk); how did he survive the destruction of Altea? How did he survive for over 10,000 years? How he got to Earth? Why didn’t he tell them sooner? How old is he really? Why didn’t he tell Allura or Coran sooner?

It all just becomes to much to fast and Lance resorts to using old tactics that his mother taught him to avoid being interrogated. He just completely shuts down, falling to the floor and having a distant look in his eyes like he isn’t there to begin with. Shiro thankfully catches on to what’s happening and shoots down any more questions, and helps Lance come out of that state, telling him it’s a ok and that he doesn’t have to answer any questions if he doesn’t want to. Slowly, lance comes back to himself, really drained from the healing pod and the total lock down he put himself through, so everyone backs off with their questions and lets Lance get some food and some sleep. Hoping to get some answers later.

Later that day, Lance comes out of his room and walks into the lounge to find everyone else already there. He knows that he’s got some explaining to do, but how much do they know? He doesn’t answer all of their questions, either because it could reveal his real origins or because he just isn’t comfortable answering them. And the others, having learned from last time, take the answers they can get and don’t push when Lance refuses to answer one. Thy of course do try and get him to show his true form, but he is very against that idea, not wanting to freak them out (shiro especially, since Lance knows that his mother had some ax ice part in Shiro’s arm. He knows his mothers work anywhere) and because he just isn’t ready to face himself yet. He isn’t ready to face who he use to be and the pain he’s caused to so many species. He doesn’t want to see his mother’s face when he looks in the mirror. He just can’t.

(Skipping ahead, if you guys got any questions about it, just send me an ask)

So fast forward to when the team had to go and save Allura, by now, Lance is still pretty pensive about revealing himself, but he’s letting a few things slide, like his ears or his height, or his eyes (which aren’t like a Haggar’s). And the team go and start fighting Zarkon’s forces, and Lance isn’t holding back one bit, destroying battle ships and battalions left and right, kinda of scaring the others because “when did Lance get so good at this?! Wtf?!” But Zarkon recognizes the flying style. He knows who is flying the blue lion and destroying his troops. But he could care less, it’s not his problem anyways, it’s Haggar’s boy, she’ll handle it. Zarkon takes control of the Black Lion for a bit, long enough to eject Shiro out of her and left floating through space. Shiro does sneak in to try and find Allura.

Lance, not wanting to take any chances with either Shiro or Allura getting hurt by his mother, Lance rams his lIon’s head into the base, right where Allura is being held. He helps her escape and immediately starts to make his way to where he’s positive Shiro is, Allura following along to make sure all three of them get out ok.

they find Shiro in the middle of a fight against Haggar, and as soon as they run in, Lance jumps into the fight and gets Shiro away from her, back to where Allura is. Haggar sees Lance and immediately knows that it’s her son, and she immediately goes on about how he did so well, and how he is allowed to come back now that he has the Blue Lion, much to Allura’s and Shiro’s confusion. Lance of course refuses to hand over the lion, and Haggar takes a strike at Lance, who struggles to counter it with his own magic But for him to do that level of Druid magic, he has to reveal his true form.

Completely.

But he isn’t focusing on that at the moment. He’s focusing on making sure his friends; his teammates are able to escape safely. But their more focused on the fact that Lance looks just like Haggar. She yells at him to stop being an insolent child and concede, and that she might just make his punishment less painful. But Lance refuses again, much more confident than before, telling her that he doesn’t take orders from her anymore, that he isn’t some puppet for her to command. He yells out how he doesn’t care that she’s his mother, that he will fight until the empire is gone!

Lance expects for her to be furious, to go berserk and fry them all to a crisp, to tell or scream about how he betrayed her and the empire. Instead she merely scoffs at him, looking at him as she always had; a look that Lance once though was her way of showing him that she loved him, or was proud of him. But he knows the real message behind it now, he kind of always had, but refused to believe it. It’s the look of disappointment. She says “it seems that you didn’t just get your father’s eyes. You got his cowardice and weakness as well.” And with that she strikes him, injuring Lance I much the same way as she did Shiro. But Lance was able to create a flash, making his and his teammates escape possible.

They all return to their lions and head back into the castle, but are unable to create a wormhole, Lance is trying hard to stay awake, but with the quintessential drain from using such high level Druid magic and the injury his mother gave him, he’s fading in and out of it.

one minute they’re in the castle trying to figure out why they can’t create a worm hole.

and the next thing Lance is sure of is him and his Lion being pulled out of the castle with the violence of a corrupted wormhole.

and then. Nothing.

ok that’s all I got right now, and if any of you guys have questions, feel free to send them my why and I’ll get to the as soon as I can!
