When joining the realm of Mythaura, you will be prompted to join one of two warring factions. Each one sparring over control of the mysterious element, Aura.

The Vanguard -  A faction whose origins hail from the now ancient Rune Wars. Their group is founded on a doctrine - honor, unity, order. Their goal is to uphold the law of the Aura - a decree forged from wars that came before. Each leader of this faction are often descendant of once great warriors, this is no different for the current leader, Reine. A young Griffin who was recently ordained into leadership.  Even though he is comparably young to the leaders that came before, Reine is fiercely devoted to the cause of The Vanguard and often looked upon as a great mentor.

The Call - A faction which birthed from smaller splinter groups who believe that the law of the Aura is a barrier for true potential. They assert that unrestricted use of the mysterious element will push their civilization into greatness, for knowledge, strength and peace. The splinter groups came together to form The Call after their leader Esris - A battle-hardened dragon who was exiled from her previous life and raised a call for uprising. Her influence and tenacity quickly earned her many followers and soon became a beloved leader.

The Voice

Our souls have
always been free,
unchained
we have walked the earth,
taken flight
through seamless thoughts,
but we are ruled by
a decree that binds us
to this world, now,
material heaven
religion
and propagation,
the suffocation
of unending needs,
we have forgotten to be free;

“we are tied
until we rise
we are broken
until we are
put together,
we are silent
until we speak”

yet seldom
do we heed
the voice
that has guided us
for so long,
from inception
to death,
we forget to hear
the call,
and we succumb
as a race
to the tyranny
of others
who have forgotten too,
what it is to be human.

1/3Regarding Sherlock’s pause before “If it’s true just say it anyway”. I agree with Anon, that was such an amazing moment and it was a turning point for me as well. His energy changes palpably when he hears her say “it’s always been true”. It’s like time stops and everything else disappears for a moment. It was somehow such an intimate moment. To me it was as if he is (and we are) taken from the dimension of a task to be performed while time is running out to a completely different plane where

2/3 it is just the two of them and where performing a task successfully, even if it is saving her life, is not what it’s actually about. Something just gives way in him, like he can’t play the game any more. Her amazing sincerity in that moment, her refusal to continue playing games and the way she embraces vulnerability – these are her quintessential qualities, this is actually her strength and it is what I think he is drawn to in her, even if he doesn’t know it. When she says it, he can’t

3/3 go on as before, he is changing right before our eyes. He seems, for a moment, helpless against her sincerity. And that is their relationship right there. In that moment, something just stops, but then after a moment it’s also as if he is thinking: Oh God, Molly, not now, please, please just continue playing so I don’t lose you. I cannot believe this whole scene. I could write a book about it.

Halloween Rec Week 1

Gods and Monsters (Myths/Legends + Horror)

Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

“There is a phrase, ātl tlachinolli, ‘the water that scorches the earth.’ My name means ‘water’ but it is also war.”  Vampires walk the streets of Mexico City and humans aren’t the only ones who should fear them, those who belong to rival clans and species have something to fear too, because a centuries old feud has boiled over into full out war and only the strongest will survive.

Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner

“I stared into her empty eyes, reflecting nothing but a callousness that turned her irises a dead shade of beige. They way she looked at me, I could have sworn she’d left her soul back on Eriana Kwai. There was no human left in this girl.” Warriors are sent out each year on a mission to put an end to the sea demons holding their island hostage, but each year they fail to return leaving the island no choice but to try a new strategy, sending in twenty young women and hoping they are able to resist the siren call.

The Call by Peadar O’Guilin

“She says, “I’m going to live. And nobody’s going to stop me.” She believes every word of it.” This frightening tale takes you deep into a world where when you look into the darkness the darkness looks back. For us it’s 3 minutes, for those who are taken it’s days as they fight beautiful but cruel creatures who take pleasure in death and torture while returning the bodies as a warning for those soon to hear The Call themselves.

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

“And yet she feels no pain and watches placidly as the Smiling Man is enveloped in a mass of hair that tears him into pieces.”  Fans of ‘The Ring’ are sure to enjoy this book as it follows the girl behind the legend whose afterlife makes her a spirit of vengeance, taking the lives of those who commit crimes like the very one that sent her to her death at the bottom of a well, but it does not bring her peace and still she drifts until she meets a boy with a demon of his own lurking just under the surface.

The Call...

The wind shifts, rustling my feathers, bringing with it the scent of change.

I am afraid, though I fly forward, knowing what I must do for the sake of my kith and kin.

I hear Them. They whisper our names, calling us to be who we are.

They warn us. They tell us to fight for what we hold dear.

The Earth. My family. My people. The very wind in my wings.

I fight for them.

I hear the Call.

I am afraid, though They empower me.

Cernunnos, Cerridwen, Dagda, Brigid, Lugh, the Morrigan;

I heed Their Call. I fly forward, borne on the winds of magic.

I am a witch, and I shall fly onward in the name of the Strength of Love.

I am a witch, and Their Call melts my fear.

I am a witch, and Their Call empowers me.

I fly, I teach, I weave, I craft, I love.

For I am a witch, and I hear Their Call.

anonymous asked:

I watched the ILY scene again and I know most people are talking about Molly's pain, but to me she also has a strength about her, she's hurting and she's fragile but standing in her own energy somehow. Sherlock on the other hand is just fucking breaking down, and especially at the bit where he says „Molly please“ – look at his eyes!!! Like all you want to do is just tell him omg babe it's gonna be ok, don't worry, and give him a big hug… My heart just broke for him.

I can see what you’re saying but my heart just breaks for both of them in that scene equally.
