I'm so excited to reenter this world with you guys!!

Name : Alexis
Gender : Female
Age : 16

Daughter of : Grandma Faye, but since she went missing on Earth a few years ago, she lives with Lilac (from HEA) and her family
Descendant of : Fairy Godmother, from Cinderella

Where are you? : Estoriana

Appearance : Olive skin with freckles, black hair, icy blue eyes. See doodle below.

Personality : Cares deeply for those around her, and would do anything to be with and help those she loves. Also, she's creative, and is always coming up with new ways to help people. She's also a huge perfectionist; she'd never experiment with spells or magic words--even ones she's been thinking about or practicing for weeks--unless the conditions are just right. Her perfectionism also leads her to be hard on herself if she makes anything perceived as a mistake.

Other : She's the fairy godmother of Lilac's child. Also, her magic requires her magic wand and magic words, it's dependent on hope, and is really temporary and lasts less than an hour.

So glad you decided to join, Popcorn. Looking forward to writing with you again! That's a cute doodle of Alexis, did you draw it yourself?

I've got a post for Neva in the works, but I think I'll wait a bit to post again.

I’m excited to write with you too, Night! And yes, I drew Alexis’s picture while coming up with her story, hence the little bullet-point-dashes in the corner of the doodle.
I should have time to write her first post sometime this weekend!

Welcome back Eve!! I missed writing in Estoriana with you! Alexis looks great!

Sorry it took so long to post, I was stuck. I finally decided to give a bit more background information, from the perspective of Mei. I promise not to post from our older characters too often, but this post needed to be from her perspective.

Sorry it is so long!!



Mei


I sat watching my girls - all of my girls, including Noelle - sliding down an icy slide that Ayla had created from the top of North’s giant globe out through the window and down the hill. The little tooth fairies, elves, and even a few of the ever-serious yetis and giant eggs slid down with the girls. My girls all were giggling uncontrollable, and I smiled to see them together again.

My Ayla and Noelle were the closest of friends, and had been inseparable since they first met on Estoriana when Noelle was only four years old and Ayla five. Ever since then, they have seen each other almost weekly their entire lives, alternating between visits on Earth or on Estoriana. I had seen Noelle so much that she felt like my third daughter, and she had called me “Mama-Mei” growing up. My Ayla called Noelle’s mom “Cali-mommy,” and they both had their “Auntie Saige,” their “grandma” Queen Ivory of Arendelle, and so many other relatives on both Estoriana and Earth. I loved seeing the incredible friendship the two wintery girls had forged, and our lives were constantly filled with snowy fun between the two girls and my Jack Frost.

My eyes shifted to my silver-haired love, laughing with my twin as they caught up, and I felt the familiar awe that he loved me. 20 years of marriage later, I still couldn’t believe it was all real. The silver-haired boy-Guardian, filled with the wisdom of having lived for an eternity and from being a Guardian of Earth but who was still a child at his core, had fallen in love with me all those years ago. Though I guess those 20 years are just a blink of an eye to an immortal winter-sprite. But the fact that the immortal winter-sprite Guardian had fallen in love with me in the first place was still such a surprise, he had met thousands of people during his lifetime, and I was still basically a child compared to him, as he had lived since before the beginnings of civilization on earth. No one except the other Guardians knew how long Jack had been alive, and even they did not know exactly how long that truly was, only that it was far longer than any of them - except maybe Bunnymund - had been alive. Not even the Man in the Moon knew exactly how long Jack had been alive, as he was older than Manny was. Jack was older than them all, and had once been known by a different name. However, in many ways, he was also younger than them all, younger in spirit but older in the respect of time he had been alive.

Throughout our time together, Jack had told me all about his life as a Guardian, and the time even before that, many hundreds of years ago. He told me about the name he had been known by before he became Jack Frost, and before he became a young boy with an adopted sister and brother. He told me about the histories of Nikolas St. North, E. Aster Bunnymund, Queen Toothiana, Sanderson Mansnoozie, and Tsar Lunar - the Man in the Moon. He told me how Mother Nature came to be. He told me about the village of Santoff Claussen, and the many creatures who had been part of his life before he met me. He told me about the many battles with Kozmotis Pitchiner who became Pitch, the Nightmare King. He told me about the first girl he had loved, though it had been a different kind of love than what we now shared. He told me about how he changed from the being he was created as to the being he now was, the winter spirit Jack Frost, the Guardian of Fun.

Jack’s story was an incredible history of heroes rising up and of friendship and light defeating the evils. A tale of loneliness, hurt, joy, and finding family. Of growing and wisdom, and of becoming small again and holding onto the best of childhood. A story of transformations for all included.

And now, I was part of his story.

Part of his immortal future. With our two immortal girls, one a Healer like me and the other a winter spirit like him.

My silver-haired boy felt my gaze upon him, and he met my eyes with a smile. Only one other person had ever known his whole story completely, and she had been away for a long time. The Guardians did not know where she was, but knew that she was far away. She had been the keeper of their stories - of all the stories on Earth, always there to remind them what had been forgotten if needed. She was known as Mother Goose, the Guardian of Stories, and she had been one of the first three Guardians on Earth. But no one had seen her in hundreds of years, and not even Manny knew where she was. She was out of his reach, nowhere near Earth. They knew she was still alive, because they could feel her faintly, but they knew nothing else.

Just then, Ayla and Noelle crashed into the room, ice and snow flying everywhere, Yue and the others right behind them, and the whole group of girls, tooth fairies, elves, yetis, and egg warriors landed in a laughing pile at Jack and Saige’s feet. North reached into the pile to pull Yue out and he tickled her, while Jack scooped up Ayla and Saige pulled up Noelle into an affectionate hug. I smiled, watching my family members goof around together, and I couldn’t wait for the Estoriana reunion tomorrow, where the rest of my family would be together again.

I was lost in my thoughts about tomorrow, when Jack snuck up behind me and swept me into his arms before taking off into flight, his wintry wind pulling the girls and Saige into the air behind him.
“Jack!” I cried out, laughing, “What are you doing?!”
“Don’t you realize what time it is?” He asked, as we flew out into the night sky. Wait. Night sky. It was dark out! I hadn’t realized how late it was, and that we had spent the whole day already!
“It’s time to sleep so we can get up early and go to the reunion tomorrow!!” Ayla exclaimed excitedly, grasping Noelle and Yue’s hands and pulling them ahead of us with her own wind. Noelle flung out her hand and grabbed onto my twin as well, pulling her with my girls as they dashed through the sky towards our home, leaving Jack and I a bit behind them all.

“Where were you?” Jack asked me softly, holding me close in his arms.
“Just admiring our family, and wondering how I managed to win the heart of the immortal winter spirit of Earth…” I said, with a laugh and a shake of disbelief.
“We’ve been over this many times before,” My Jack replied, giving me a smirk before kissing me.
“I know, I know,” I laughed, “I just still can’t believe it!”
“That’s ok, I have forever to convince you!” He smiled, before flipping us in the air.
“Jack, where do you think Katherine is?” I ask, and he sobers quickly.
“I don’t know.” He says in a quiet voice, gazing to the stars. “Just... far away.” In that moment, he looks like a very young boy, lost and alone, unsure if one of his closest friends will ever return.

“Hey,” I say, holding his face and turning his head to me, “She is ok, you can feel that, all of you can.”
“I know,” He replies, giving a faint smile, “You’re right.” But unspoken is the wish that she would return, at least for a visit, and rejoin her fellow Guardians for at least a short while. I had never met Katherine, but I had heard so much about her, and I knew she meant a lot to my Jack. She was his first friend on Earth, and his first love. They had been through so much together, and I wished she would come back and ease their worry about her.

We flew in silence until we reached our home, where our girls and my twin awaited us.
“Come on, girls, time for bed. The sooner you sleep the sooner morning and the reunion will come!” I said, putting an arm around Yue. I walked with them to tuck them all into bed, with Noelle sharing Ayla’s room with her - as always. I tucked them into bed, and was about to leave when Ayla spoke.
“Mom?”
“Yes, sweetheart?”
“Is Daddy ok? He seemed sad.”
“He just misses one of his old friends. She has been gone for a long time, and he doesn’t know when she will be back.”
“Ooh. When will Daddy tell me about his life before he met Auntie Astrid?”
“I don’t know, love. Maybe soon. Goodnight, my little snowstorm.” I said, before leaving to say goodnight to Yue.

I met Jack in the hallway as he left Yue and headed to say goodnight to Noelle and Ayla.
“I think it is time the girls know some of your history. It is their history too.”
“Soon,” He replied, “Soon.”



(Hope you guys like it! I read the Guardians of Childhood books by William Joyce, the creator of the characters that Rise of the Guardians is based off of, which is where this extra information about Jack's past is coming from. According to the books, Jack and Pitch first came to Earth in 9,300 B.C., though Jack was known by a different name then and was a different being. He was trapped until the 1700s, befriending the other Guardians as they became the Guardians, and he transformed and became Jack Frost in the early 1900s.

All the people Mei mentioned when reminiscing about the history Jack had told her during their time spent together are characters in Joyce's books about the Guardians, and Katherine is a very key figure. I am not sure why they didn't include Katherine in the movie, but I want to add her into our story. I am thinking that the reason she wasn't in their most recent battle with Pitch and wasn't in HEA/OUAT as a background character for Jack when he speaks about his fellow Guardians will be because she went on a journey to find something or someone on a different planet. She has been gone a long time, but she will play a role in this RP, as she is Mother Goose.

Sorry this post is so long!!)

Awesome post, Liri!
Sorry for yet another lengthy post. I really wanted to establish all my characters first, so I hopefully won't forget/neglect any of them this time around...



I sat surrounded by a hall of mirrors, each reflecting a different part of Arendelle.
There was the alleyway by the baker’s shop, customers walking out with baskets of bread and flaky pastries. Under the bridge across the fjord, where a couple sat holding hands. In the shadows of the blacksmith’s shop, where the air was filled with smoke and the ringing sound of anvil on steel. Several scenes of the forest at the edges of the city.
And even a couple inside the royal palace itself…
I smiled as I directed my shadow creature to float down the hallways, careful to duck and hide whenever a servant walked by, or voices could be heard from up ahead. Like all the residents of Exilia, I wasn’t able to visit Estoriana in person – not unless a descendant invited me in. So the shadow wraiths acted as my eyes and ears in that world.
Any magic user on Exilia could control the wraiths, if they were trained. They were enchanted creatures specific to this world, formed of the dark, roiling energy that powered Exilia’s magic. I’d been learning how to create and control them since…
Well, since Saskia left.
Today was the first time I’d dared to enter the palace itself though. You see, the only way they could enter Estoriana was through the cracks between worlds, created from residual energy left by the usage of powerful, forbidden magic. It was a dark magic that the wraiths were created from, after all, and they in turn could travel between worlds, drawn to places of great evil.
But the one inside Arendelle’s palace came out of a crack no one knew about, besides myself and Mother. No one alive on Estoriana today remembered the horror that had taken place in that castle, so long ago.

Up ahead, a familiar voice could be heard grumbling in a clearly impatient tone. I rolled my eyes, recognizing it immediately from the many other times I’d spied on Arendelle.
I directed the wraith to peek into the room. Noelle sat with her mother, Calissa, before a huge mound of snow. Her brows were furrowed in concentration, but a moment later, whatever she was working on flopped back to the floor in a useless flurry. Even from here, I could see the irritation on her face, and I could almost hear the way she’d be whining right now to her mother.

I bet Mireya would loathe her, I thought to myself, with a bitter smile. She doesn’t even recognize how fortunate she is to even have a mom – let alone an entire, perfect little family.
This fool of a girl exemplified everything what I hated about the Estorianians – selfish, ungrateful, and irritating, utterly oblivious to all the terrible things that really went on in the world. All they ever wanted to do was to play around in their perfect little fairy tale lives. Well, that and make sappy, melodramatic declarations of love and happiness.
They had done this to us. Trapped us forever in this barren, desolate land. Some of them – like Layla, Hunter, Amaryllis, Jalilah, Maurelle, and the rest -- had even done it to their own parents. How could they be so heartless?
And instead of it weighing on their minds, it seemed they’d long since forgotten. Like the other descendants, they now only cared about their endless balls, banquets and other frivolities.
I wonder if Saskia is with them right now. I wonder if she still remembers her last words to me. Does she still think about them, as often as I do?

Three years ago…

“So, what did you want to talk to me about?” I asked teasingly. We were standing at the top of a small hill overlooking the craggy wilderness of Exilia. It was our special spot, the place where we always met to talk about things where no one else could overhear. From here, looking out at the sunset across the expanse of jagged boulders and thorny bushes, the landscape painted in shades of orange and fiery red, Exilia looked almost… beautiful. Majestic.
It was the only place where that could be said about this wretched place.
“Saskia?” I asked. She looked deeply contemplative, lost in her own thoughts and almost… nervous. I frowned. What did she have to be scared of? We had been best friends for years, and told each other everything.
“Neva, do you trust me?” she asked finally.
“Of course!” I reached out to take her hand. “Saskia, what’s wrong? You know you can talk to me.”
“This is going to be a lot to take in. But please, just hear me out, okay?” From the inner folds of her cloak, Saskia pulled out a small pocketwatch. It emitted a strange glow, the unmistakeable aura of Estorianian magic.
I gasped. “Is that… a portalling device? How did you get it? Oh, Saskia, this is wonderful! Now we can go to Estoriana and finally avenge our parents.” I reached out to touch it, and she pulled her hand away. I stopped, confused. “What’s wrong?”
“That’s not what this is for,” Saskia said, a tremor in her voice. “It was given to me freely, by an Estorianian. And I will not use it to betray him.”
“I… I don’t understand.”
“It’s all a lie, Neva! We’ve been lied to our entire lives. It wasn’t the descendants who were in the wrong, it was Queen Imperia, and Hook, and the rest of them. They took over Estoriana first, ruled over it like tyrants. The descendants had no choice but to banish them – “
I took a step backwards. “No.” My voice was shaking now. “No, Saskia. Not you too.”
“I know, I know. It took me a long time to accept it too. But I promise you, Neva, it’s the truth.” She reached out to touch me, but I pulled back, shaking my head.
“You’re no better than – than them!” I cried out. “The others who helped the descendants escape at the great battle of Exilia. We always talked about how horrible they were for abandoning their parents in this terrible place. We swore we’d never be so heartless… How could you, Saskia? You know the descendants would do anything to turn you over to their side.”
“But what if it’s us who were on the wrong side all along?” she asked desperately. “Haven’t you ever wondered? Do you really trust Queen Imperia, and Hans, and the rest of them? How do you know they’re not the ones manipulating you?” She held out a hand to me. “Please. Let me show you what Estoriana is like. Please just give them a chance. Everything will be explained if you just come with me.”
I shook my head again. “I can’t abandon my family.” Tears were streaming down my face now, blurring my sight. “How could you ever consider this?”
Saskia’s face hardened. “I won’t give up on you, Neva. We’ll see Estoriana together, I swear.”
Sudden anger flooded through me, piercing through the anguish. How could she be so calm about this? Betraying everything we knew and loved, our very families. Traitor! Before I was fully aware of it, my fingertips began glowing ice-blue.
And suddenly, I was staring at the tip of a long, sharp dagger, drawn and pointed straight at me. And Saskia, holding it, her eyes wide with horror.
I didn’t know it was possible to feel more betrayed, but the pain that welled up through my chest was as sharp and piercing as if she’d stabbed me then and there.
“You really think I would hurt you?” I whispered.
Saskia opened her mouth to speak, but before she could, I raised my own voice. “Guards! Guard, help! Traitor!”
Saskia’s eyes widened. I lunged toward her, but my hands passed uselessly through empty air as, before my eyes, she vanished.

That was the last time I’d ever seen her.

Mother found me later that night, crouched in the corner of my room, staring unseeingly out of the window. I couldn’t stop replaying the scene over and over again in my head. Was there something I could’ve done? I shouldn’t have lost my temper. Could I have persuaded her to stay, if I’d tried harder?
And did she really think I’d use magic to attack her?
Anger and hurt bubbled up through my veins. Saskia of all people knew how hard I’d trained, how many hours of work I’d put into controlling my powers, ever since I was old enough to summon a snowflake. I had poured hours upon hours of sweat and tears into making sure I’d never lose control and hurt someone. Mother had drilled that into me from the moment I learned to crawl – our powers could be dangerous, and letting go had disastrous consequences.
And yet, Saskia had looked at me like I was a monster to be feared. Was that all anyone ever saw in me?
“Neva?” Mother folded me into her arms. I buried my face in her shoulder and began to cry, uncontrollable sobs that tore through my entire body.
“Oh, Neva. I’m so sorry,” Mother said gently. “I didn’t want you to have to find out this way. But you know now, don’t you? Anyone can betray anyone.”
There was a wealth of sadness in her voice, that spoke of old wounds that had never healed. “They may say they care about you, and they’ll do a fine job of pretending. But no one will ever truly trust us, not with the abilities that we have. Sometimes not even family. I never told you this before, but it was not the descendants who banished me to this place… but my own sister.”
I pulled back in shock. I knew about her, of course – my aunt Gerda, mother of the infamous Elsa, long-ago ancestor of the current Queen of Arendelle. I didn’t know much about my mother’s relationship with her sister, as she’d never talked about her prior to today.
But this… it was unthinkable. The horror of such an act rocked me to my very core.
“She was… terrified of my abilities, of what I could do, so she sealed me away in a place where I could not hurt anyone else.” there was a slight tremor in Mother’s voice. “After I was gone, she had the memories of me erased from everyone in Arendelle. No one alive there today even knows of our existence.”
She pulled me close. “We are the only ones who can understand what it’s like to live with a power like this,” she whispered into my hair. “One born of destruction and wrath, that could so easily rip apart what we hold most dear. Others will always fear us, or hate us for it, even if they pretend otherwise. This is why, in all the world, we only ever have each other.”


The swish of a sword slashing through one of my shadow creatures brought me out of my reverie. I hissed in annoyance. It looked as though the Estorianian army was here, along with that meddlesome girl – the daughter of Commander Shang himself. I didn’t have much time left.
I directed the wraith that had been situated outside the palace training room to follow Calissa and Queen Ivory as they left for some sort of chat. A moment later, however, I was distracted by Noelle, who had immediately left her studies to create an ice slide leading down into the gardens below. Where my other shadow creature lay in wait.
I scowled at how irresponsible she was, thinking back to the long hours I’d spent controlling my own abilities. Someone as reckless as her was in no way deserving of such power, and one day she’d learn to regret her own frivolity.
Noelle caught sight of my wraith, immediately beginning to give chase, heedless of the danger. I smiled to myself. Why not play with her a little? I directed the shadow to dart and weave into the woods beyond the palace grounds, and she gave chase, sending blasts of icy magic crashing into the trees. Her clumsy attacks were no match for my swift and agile creature of darkness. I rolled my eyes. It was almost too easy.

Then Ivory’s ice spear skewered my other wraith, and I winced as it dissipated into wisps of smoke. Almost at the same time, a sword cleaved through the one Noelle was chasing, splitting that one in two as well.
I sighed, giving up and letting my other shadow creatures drift away as well. It had been a long day, and I was exhausted. I didn’t have the energy to try and fight the army right now. No matter, I’d collected enough information for one day anyway.

I closed my eyes for a moment, pushing back the anger, the resentment, and the still-raw sting of betrayal that always came when I relived these particular memories. That hateful, bitter side of me was something I never showed to anyone, not even the people I called my friends. I’d shown too much of myself to somebody once, and she had thrown it all back in my face. Mother was the one person in the world I could trust, and I hated showing such weakness in front of her.

“Neva?”
I started at the sound of Mireya’s voice. She was standing in the doorway, striking green eyes surveying the many reflections in my mirrors with a look of distaste. As usual, she looked beautiful and aloof, her dark curly hair like a wild halo around her face.
“Checking in on the descendants again?” Mireya asked. I knew the disgust in her voice wasn’t directed at me. When she was four years old, her mother had died of illness, and from what she’d told me, her father had never been the same since. The others always said it was because Esme had never been able to adjust to the rough, tempestuous climate of Exilia. Of course, it would never have happened if the descendants hadn’t been so cruel – banishing a happy couple with a child on the way to this miserable place.

“Well, someone has to do it,” I stood up, letting out a long-suffering sigh. “Unless you’re volunteering for the honors?” I gave her a teasing grin, careful to keep the bitter edge out of my voice.
That familiar hollow emptiness pulled at me again, like a gnawing hole I could never fill up. I hid it the same way I hid my true self, behind twisted smiles and pretty lies, because who would ever want to see me as I really was?

“Anyway, I guess I lost track of time,” I continued, careful to keep my voice upbeat. “Has the migration started yet?”
“Nope, but we’d better hurry!”

I let Mireya lead the way out of my mother’s snow lair, watching as she sidestepped around the glittering icicles that littered the room, shooting up like giant stalagmites. Her bare feet were as nimble and graceful as an acrobat’s.
Once outside, we headed out past the settlement, to the wide-open plains of Exilia. The black spires of Queen Imperia’s palace were still visible in the distance, but only just.
Every season, the two of us went to see the great herds of stone animals begin their long migration. It was the only time when those creatures could be spotted in the wild, as they made their homes underground and easily blended into the craggy, rock-strewn wasteland of the Exilian wilderness.
But once every few months, the herd would emerge from their usual habitat and move across the plains until they found a new spot to burrow into. Exilia had a vast network of caves and underground passages, and occasionally we could feel the movement of these animals beneath our feet.

Mireya and I found a good vantage point in a patch of thorny bushes. We had to stay hidden, for the great stone creatures were notoriously hostile towards us – towards all the Exilians, really. They were known to attack viciously if they managed to catch a glimpse of any of us. Saskia and I had only narrowly escaped from a stampede of them, the year I’d turned eleven and we dared each other to try and pet one.
Legend has it that during the Great Battle of Exilia, one of the descendants had managed to tame these creatures, and even rode one to victory. I couldn’t imagine such a thing, though it would explain why they hated us so much.

It wasn’t long before the earth beneath our feet began to shake, and it felt as if a great mountain had picked itself up and began marching forward. The leader of the great beasts looked like an enormous reindeer, with rock formations growing over his limbs and head like armor.
I still marveled at the sight, how a creature that big could move with such speed.
The animals were wild, nomadic – and a little mysterious. Not dissimilar to Mireya herself, which was likely the reason she'd always been fascinated by them. As for why I kept coming back here, season after season...
Watching the herd, how they moved together, from the largest boulder-sized leader to the smallest infant… their closeness so obvious even from this distance. I wasn’t sure why, but the hollow ache in my chest intensified every time I came here. The feeling that something was missing from my life, something I wanted badly to find. But what?
Maybe I'd thought, if I kept coming back, one day I would discover what it was that I truly wanted. A foolish thought, really.

I stood up as the sun was beginning to set over the horizon. "We should probably go. Her Majesty will throw a fit if we're late."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Outside the grand hall of Queen Imperia's palace, a tall girl with golden hair stood waiting to enter. She glanced up at the sound of our approach.
"Where have you two been?" she asked, her voice cool and aloof.
Like Mireya, I'd known Scarlet my entire life, though I was never really sure if she considered me a friend or not. She always seemed distant and closed-off, never particularly affectionate towards anyone, with a quick temper and sharp tongue.
I smiled, slipping easily into my usual mask, the one I was so used to now that at times I could almost convince myself it was real. That there were no dark thoughts of bitterness and resentment running like a current beneath. Cheerful, outgoing Neva, with nothing to hide at all.

"Nothing much. Just went to watch the seasonal migration," I replied, giving a friendly smile that she did not return.

Tonight was one of the grand meetings of the Exilian council, where our parents, as well as Queen Imperia, Captain Hook, Jafar, and the rest got together to discuss our next plan of action. The next strike we would make against the Estorianians.
It was their greatest ambition, for us descendants to return to Estoriana and reconquer it in the name of our parents. Now that the banishment curse was made permanent, the former kings and queens of the fairytale world had no hope of returning to their former homes. However, they certainly would not give up so easily, and had been plotting all these long years to have us achieve the vengeance they could not reach for themselves - as well as take over both worlds.
Mireya and Scarlet were all for it, eager to take revenge on the descendants, though each for their own reasons. Little did they know, however, that Mother had a very different plan in mind.

But that was something I hadn't revealed to anyone...

(I know you gave me permission to use Mireya, but let me know if you'd like me to change anything, Liri! Same goes for Scarlet, Glory - I'm not really sure what she thinks of Neva or Mireya, so I left it to you.
And Popcorn, hope you don't mind the return of Avia's army.
Also, just as an aside, what should our Exilian characters call themselves? I was having some difficulty with that in my post. I mean, I'm sure they don't refer to themselves as "the villains"! )

Lissa

I felt the air whip past my face as I raced through the small cobblestone road clutching my prize close to my chest a smile on my face. By my side is Charles, my best friend and partner in crime, behind me one of the villagers yelled at us to get back here while chasing after us. I laugh as we lose our chaser easily and run to our hideaway in the forest near our village. By the time we make it to our destination we are both dying with laughter.
I turn to Charles with a grin, “did you see the look on that guys face when he realized two of his apples were gone” I finally manage to get out.
“I know, it was priceless” Charles responds with a laugh. We each take a bite of our stolen apples and watching the Wonderland birds fly by. I still remember the day I first meet Charles eight years ago…


Eight Years Ago
The village was quiet as I slipped out of my cottage and made my way to my favorite treetop to watch the sunrise. My favorite bag was slung over my shoulder packed with bread and an apple. I was about to turn a corner when I saw a flash of movement in the corner of my eye. A young boy reached out to steal my bag but I had him pinned to the ground before he could blink. The boy stared up at me with green eyes filled with shock. He looked about my age and had tousled brown hair and freckles splattered all over his face.
“Ouch, that hurt! What do you think you're doing flinging people about?” he yelped feigning innocence.
I rolled my eyes “You know if you’re going to steal from someone you shouldn’t try the descendent of the Knave of Hearts, the greatest thief in wonderland history” I reply with a snort, “I’m Alissa, by the way. I would say that my friends call me Lissa but that would require me to have some.” I stand up and extend my hand to help the village boy up.
The boy takes my hand and stands “Charles. Look sorry for trying to steal your bag, I was just trying to help my family.” he responds sheepishly rubbing his shoulder.
“That’s ok. Come on we have plenty of food at our house!” I say grabbing his hand and running to my house.


Present
Ever since that day Charles and I have been inseparable and we did everything together from thieving to exploring Wonderland. Charles turns back to me “We should probably head back soon, I’m supposed to help my mom out with the twins.” he says with a sigh pulling me out of my reminiscing. Charles lives with his mom and to younger brothers who are twins and like to give their mom a hard time.
“Yeah, I ‘get’ to pick out a dress for the ball tomorrow.” I respond sarcastically. My mom was making me go to some ball that was supposed to be a reunion for most of the descendants in Estoriana and I wasn’t too thrilled to have to meet a lot of new people. We both stand up and gather our stuff.
“Race you back!” I yell running in the direction of the village.[/SIZE][/FONT]

I'm so sorry I haven't posted yet! I spent a while on that Zeo post and around the time that I posted it, Night posted her thing for Ansell in Believe so now I feel like I need to write a Tori post. There's also this other RP I'm in that isn't on this site that I need to write a post for too. I'm just struggling to get myself to just sit down and write at the moment, as well as figuring out what to write for. I promise I haven't forgotten about this though!

I'm sorry too, for posting so much so frequently on this RP. I promise to slow down from now on.

I also apologize if my BiotB post made you feel pressured to respond! That was never my intention. If I'm being honest, I wrote the post that way more to pressure myself into posting for Sierra than anything else, since my other characters are now occupied.
Feel free to post on anything that you'd like, whenever you have the time! No need to worry.

And great post Kira!

Shooooosh


Whooooosh


The mellow sound of the waves beneath me filled my body, mind, and soul with peace as I looked out on the horizon. Another day in Atlantis had just come to an end. Another day full of harsh training to help prepare myself for the day I become Captain of the Atlantis Guard. It was a dream I had had since I was a child. My mother, thankfully, supported that dream. She was a fighter herself. Even after she became queen of Atlantis, she continued to fight in our battles. She was the first person to teach me how to fight. I'll never forget any of the lessons she taught me.

"Never let your guard down."

"Don't turn your back on an enemy."

"Always move faster than your opponent."

"Do not hesitate to spare anyone. Sometimes mercy is the best way to defeat an enemy."

If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be the girl I am today. I'm immensely grateful for everything I learned from my mother. Sparring together was our best way of connecting. As I got older, our sparring sessions were the only time that we spent together until she had me begin training under the current captain of the guard, Echkthel'on, to advance my skills. Now, I only, occasionally, see her at dinner. It was hard enough as a child to connect with my over eight-thousand year old mom who has a strange link to the core of our glorious city, the Heart of Atlantis (and I'm not even sure what that does to her. All I know is that it makes her eyes glow blue sometimes). Now, with how distant mother has been acting lately, it's seemingly impossible to even talk to her. It's obvious she's hiding something. I just want to know what that something is. Recently I've bee staying late to…"keep an eye" on my mother. I have learned that when she isn't sitting in her room doing what seems like chanting in some ancient language, she goes out to send letters to someone who lives far away, using Atlantean technology that can send letters to whomever it is addressed to in a matter of seconds in the form of this bright, blue beam. I've tried to search for letter she may have written during the day, but I can never find anything. Either she only writes them at night before sending them off or she hides them with some special device or maybe even magic. Maybe that crystal she always wears around her neck has some magical properties to it that she harnesses to do her mysterious work.

Or maybe I'm overthinking all of this. I thought to myself. My mother is a strong, honorable woman. She would never do something to harm Atlantis or her people. She probably has a very good reason for acting so mysterious and doing things behind my back. At least, she better have a good reason for it.

I sighed, trying to relax myself and my body. I'd be lying if I said this whole thing involving my mother didn't stress me out. It did. In fact, it didn't just stress me out. It flat out made me upset. I despised being left out in the dark like this. I thought my mother trusted me and cared about me but these days I feel like that is the exact opposite.
But I didn't come here tonight to think about that, despite how hard it is to not dwell on those thoughts. I came here, to Blue Moon Cave, to relax.

"And what better way to relax than by going for a little swim." I said to myself, as I stood up on the edge of the mouth of the cave, the coolness of the rock sending shivers up and down my body.

Before I jumped, I looked out amongst the waves once again. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I've always loved the smell of the sea. It's just as relaxing as, if not more than, the sound of the waves crashing against the Atlantean rocks. Being here at Blue Moon cave always gave me a sense of peace. I felt like I was in my own world where no one could hurt me. Not even my own mother. I discovered Blue Moon Cave five years ago. I had stormed out of the palace one night after having a fight with my mother. I didn't plan on going too far away, but at the same time I didn't want to be near any other people. So I decided I would venture off into the forest. Mother had always warned me not to go there alone, especially at night but in that moment, I didn't really care about anything she had told me before. As I made my way through all the trees and various other foliage, I didn't stumble upon anything dangerous which made me think my mother had been lying all of these years. Granted, I stayed away from the really dark part of the forest but there still could've been other dangerous animals where I was too. Thankfully there wasn't any, at least not any I saw. After a while of walking, I finally made it to the base of the mountain. At this point, a small part of me thought it would be best if headed back to the palace now. But I heard the faint sound of water nearby and I knew I had to do more exploring.
It didn't take me long to find the source of the sound. It seemed to be the edge of the island. I couldn't shake the feeling that there was more for me to see here, even though it looked to be the exact opposite. After standing above the water for several minutes, I finally turned to head back home when suddenly, a bird quickly flew past my face. As I watched it fly away, I saw an opening in the side of the mountain. Filled with excitement, I climbed on the rocks as fast as I could to the cave.
Once I got there, I took a good look around. The cave wasn't enormous. It was kind of small but cozy. Perfect for a young girl like me to stay in whenever I needed a break from the life of a princess, or a break from my mother. As the light from the full moon shone into the cave, making the inside appear to shimmer, I gave it the name of "Blue Moon Cave" and ever since then I had retreated to the cave whenever I deemed it necessary for myself and especially my mental health. The cave wasn't the only relaxing thing about this place, though. The water also played a part in that. Something about the way the water sounded and felt on this side of the island was different. The environment underneath the surface was unique in all the creatures and corals that resided here. It was an adventure each time I visited. One that never failed to soothe me, which is exactly the reason why I was here.

I counted to three before diving off the edge of the cave and into the water. As the cool water made contact with my warm skin, I instantly felt relief. Any cares and worries I had all went away for the time that I was in the water. I wish I could always swim all my problems away. Unfortunately, that isn't always an option. But that was something I could worry about after I arrived back home. For now, I didn't want to think about anything except the sea and I.
