Beaches and Witches
(2013-04-02 - 2013-04-02)
Hawaii's beaches are always good to clear the mind, and new magic-user Serah has great needs of it, in company of musical magicial Elysiana
Elysiana Glyphanos THe Beaches of Hawaii.

Elysiana has stretched herself out on one of them standing in the water. Dancing slowly and carefully along the black sanded beach, crafeully to some unknown music. THe slow dawning sun has turned the sky from grey to... blue slowly..
Serah Farron The pink haired girl spent the night at the hotel, without really anywhere in particular to go to. She slips out of it early morning, stiffling a yawn, attaching the tail of her hair on her left side with a little ribbon as she always does. Hawaii is a nice place, always warm it seems.

Although she doesn't have a destination in mind yet, she notices the dancing figure on the beach as she exits. Tilting her head a bit in curiosity, she walks closer, stepping over the sand quietly as she observes.
Elysiana Glyphanos The white haired young woman dances with a slow careful motions. Though the pink haired woman gets a smile from her. She doesn't stop dancing for a few more moments. "Lady.. Serah...wasn't it?" she asks softly. When she stops her dancing and approaching the other lady. "You're hair's beautiful." She says.
Serah Farron Serah Farron waves a hand dismissively "I'm not a layd, just a young girl, really, no need to be formal with me or anything." She smiles, sliding fingers through that tail hanging over her shoulder "Well, thank you. Its a bit unusual color, but people seem to like it."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos laughs. She touches her own. "This at home, got the same sort of.. treatment." she says softly. She exhales. "But in my home , any young woman like you or I, is 'Lady'. Our mothers would also be ' Lady'... its a term of respect. Its a hard to break habit." she admits. She looks out at the ocean. "I miss the sea."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hmms "You like the sea?" She steps a bit closer to the waves, stepping out of her shoes to let the water run between her toes freely. "What kind of family was it? High class? I don't know anyone that was using the term 'lady' in my world really.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "Its a reference to the fact that all women share a part of the power of life in them." she explains. "Men will never understand it, but its a respect for it... The Goddeses are simply the "Ladies" in the common era, but they have names in the scholarly tongu "Caer", "Embira and Daljin..." she stops. "I am sorry, Serah..." she said softly. "I was raised as Priestess in training so ... I tend go do a lot of recitation." she smiles. "You can call me ,Ely. Elysiana is mouthful."
Serah Farron Serah Farron smiles, taking steps with one feet directly in front of the other, the sole touching the toes every time. "Its a lovely name, Elysiana, even as a mouthful. I understand what you mean though, women are the child bearers after all. I guess some people would venerate them more highly, although in my world we proned for equality."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "Its not that the Caelavia isn't. We very much think that equality is how it should be. But there is a slight veneration. For the church o the Heaven's Light, its priestesses.. though the male priestes are powerful in their own right. The Goddesses... were... often in mortal form and took male consorts. So there is respect for that. It was those men who taught the women-- the art of metal work- of beautiful metal working, the finer details.. For they saw the intricate beauty... at times where women couldn't." she explains. "Or so some of the older stories go."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hmmms as she nods, listening to all of that, arms outstretched as she balances herself along the waves, as if walking a tightrope "Well women usually get respect, but some people still think of them as weak, so there's a feeling of protection too. But socially speaking, women can do the same work as men. My sister is a Sargeant in the local army. I'm only a student though."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos turns. "Sounds like home to me. " she started to speak and then stopped. "Definately. She'd have liked my sister I think." She smiles. " Live, Simply and you shall prosper. Lay down your weapons and pick up your tools... rebuild a world in which the long night has finally ended.- Ancient Caelavia... law. One we still follow--ed." she begins. "So what's your home like?" she removes her shoes and follows Serah int othe water.
Serah Farron Serah Farron puts her arms in her back, walking a bit more normally, enjoying the water under her feet "It was a little like this, it was a beachfront, although at night it was filled with fireworks. But the world itself was alot different. Its hard to explain, but we were living inside a bubble if you want, with deities known as fal'Cies regulating things like gravity, air, food, water and electricity. So it was safe and comfortable, all the time. Bodhum was one of the cities, me and my sister had a home nearby."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos blinks. "Fireworks.. every night?" she asks softly surprised and frankly a bit shocked. "Sounds.. controlled." she whisperes. "Wait Bodhum?" she pauses. "There is a Bodum..."" she ponders. "I've visited it. I though I'd just come to the town during a estival..."
Serah Farron Serah Farron blinks "Bodhum is here too?" She ponders, but looks like she's somewhat relieved too "I suppose that shouldn't be too surprising given this world, but that makes me glad. I'd like to go see it." She bounces on her heels a bit.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos shakes her head. "WEll not.. here but I have visited it." she begins. "It's lovely. The little seaside city." She smiles. "So... what should we do..."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hmms, looking up a bit to the sky changing colors "Well I'm just on the run right now, really no place to go in particular. I guess I was just trying to stay alive while looking for something, anything familiar. It doesn't seem I can find a safe place from those heartless either."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "Have you tried to go back to Bodum. I mean e can probably... manage it between you and I. The magic to probably move us won't be too difficult.."
Serah Farron Serah Farron tilts her head at that "Magic to move us? What do you mean?" She doesn't know all of the details of this world yet. "Of course I'd like to see Bodhum again. But I don't know where it is yet."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "I've been there..." she says. "I remember what it looks like.." she looks around on the beach, and finds two rocks. "You can stack rocks, but they cannot exist in the same space... exactly." she says holding them in her hand. "But... we can move them from 'here' to 'there' by picking them up... essentially we're picking ourselves up 'by' magic. And.. thorwing ourselves..." she says softly. "Its part of the reason I fell.. yesterday. I didn't have enough energy to throw myself to where I was trying to go-- or rather.. a combination of energy and picture."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hmmms as she listens "... Well I don't think we need magic either. We just need to find how to get there on our own." She smiles "There are maps at the hotel, maybe we can figure it out too. I don't know what the other girls want to do either, but maybe they would know about it too, I didn't get to ask."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "Worth a shot." she said. "I do love travel. but I originalyl thought it was better to use magic. But here and home are two different places. So it makes sense. Perhaps maps and a good travel plan ,previsions, plotting out stops and points along the places..."
Serah Farron Serah Farron smiles "Saves some energy too. I mean, it slonger that way, but its about the trip not the destination sometimes." She stretches her arms behind her back. "So what are your plans? I mean, we both lost it seems, but it doesn't mean we can't have something to look forward to.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos smiles. "I don't have any really. So far its been survival. Money for Food and shelter. .and trying to find friends. I don't know if anyone.. survived the destruction of my homeland, and if tey did no one from Caelavia that I know of.."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods again "A bit the same for me right now... I'm not even sure how much time has passed either. Maybe noone I knew is left. I guess that's why I wanted to find something a bit more familiar. Maybe like a beacon for them to find me if they are around."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "But you said you were being chased. Do you have.. well 'string magic'?" she asks. "Though this works when people are close and together.. you can tie.. energy strings.. and essentially the closer you are.. the... warmer the 'metaphorical' string grows. Of course it works better with objects that the 'strings' are attacked too."
Serah Farron Serah Farron shakes her head "I'm being chased by the heartless, not by anyone else right now... I've been trying to find some place that they will leave me alone. I don't think this place is entirely safe, but its quiet and I was able to tke a breather at least. But I never heard about those strings either.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "Well its useful. PErhaps we should find some jewlry or something specially and create that bond between us? I can help you, you can help me... Warding magic might help too.."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hms "I don't think I know that kind of magic... well, I don't know much about magic..." She looks at her hands. She shot out ice and fire, but that's about it really, she doesn't know the extent of it yet.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "Is Magic common in Bodum..." she begins softly. She pauses. "I am used to it being.. almost common at home."
Serah Farron Serah Farron shakes her head, moving her hands down at that "... No, its quite uncommon. I didn't even know I had magic before a few days ago, when I almost lost my heart to those monsters. Magic isn't a thing.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "Then that would explain many things." she says softly. "I am from a world that is.. normal about it Magic is for Priests and Priestesses, for those who have it or wish to awaken their spark.. there are schools. Some like you learn after something happens. But there are always people willing to teach."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods again. She moves up the beach a bit, so she can sit down in a dry area of the sand. "Magic isn't taught for us.. it given. And that's a complicated story... having magic is NOT a good thing in my world, it means you're a monster..." She looks down a bit at that, looking a tiny bit depressed.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos raises an eyebrow and seems confused. "Different worlds are very different then. Then your magic is looked at through the lense of a problem... when you gods give it? But the gods control your world.. why would they 'curse' someone with magic.." She moves to follow and sit down. "Very confusing."
Serah Farron Serah Farron shakes her head "Its hard to explain really. But... the 'gods' of our world only give powers when it comes to war and strife. They give powers when they require tasks of someone. And when given power, they have no choice to follow or... or face fate worse than death itself. And if you follow it... you're granted eternal slumber instead, never to see your dear ones. Its not a joyous occurence, either way."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos stares. "What cruell.. gods..." she mutters. "I mean. Why would they give such only to promote.. war and strife. Guardian-spirits would be akin to your guards. They guard nations and need.. a human... 'handler' I suppose is the best equivalent."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods, shuffling a feet through the sand a bit in front of her "That's because of the two worlds facing each other. The gods that created and maintained Cocoon, and the ones that try to invade it from Gran Pulse, so they can destroy Cocoon." She rubs her upper arm a bit, where there's a bandage.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos blinks. "Why would they do that I mean why would they want to destory each other. I mean Why would those of Gan Pulse want..." she shakes her head.
Serah Farron Serah Farron looks up "I don't know either. Jealousy perhaps, or fear. Cocoon l'Cies, the 'chosen ones' are rare because the inside of Cocoon is at peace. But if another war was to start, they would probably make l'Cies out of many many people.
Serah Farron Serah Farron shakes her head "I have no idea really... The last war had been long before I was born after all, all we know are in storybooks."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks on something. "I... that seems strange." she says softly. "But who am I to judge another world's policies."
Serah Farron Serah Farron looks up again, toward the sky, hugging her knees to her chest a bit "Well all I know is that we had a peaceful life thanks to all of it at least. But then... they found ruins that came from Gran Pulse, and it seems inside of it was hiding a fal'Cie. That's where I was 'chosen'... by one of the gods that sought to destroy Cocoon no less..." She shakes her head "But that's not what I'm here for right now. I don't understand what's going on. There is no Cocoon here, so I'm lost."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "So wrong time.. wrong place. .and wrong deity choose you." she said softly. "Sounds like mother. Right time.. Right place.. wrong person. They way the priestess tell it the box was reacting to me.. not to her.. But they choose mother and perhaps it was the way of protect me.."
Serah Farron Serah Farron looks up to you "... But was it a good thing if one is chosen? I mean, if your mother decided to protect you, was there a reason?"
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "My mother and the family.. we were running. I was sacrifice, or perhaps going to be.. fed to a guardian deity- of a the nation I was born in.." she explains. She tugs her hair and points ot her eyes. "The white hair is a signal of imensse power. I normally dyed my hair black. But my eyes are... less... hideable. Someone saw me with my white hair- I was young maybe four years of age or so." she closes her eyes. " Mother simply picked up the family and we ran. The Queen of Sadia is priestess of another religion. We ran to Caelavia, at the time there was festival-- to honor hte Sun Queen... it just happened we walked in to the High Temple... and my power must have.. triggered soemthing the priestess took it as a sign. But they didn't see me, they saw mother... you can image a five year old-- would not have been looked on kindly or perhaps would have been puppeted.. by those seeking power."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods, wriggling her toes through the sand a bit "Yeah, I can imagine... just forced to do things, without raelly know what you were doing in reality, just because you were told 'this is what you must do'.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "But I am the youngest child. Mothe was made Queen, I was shipped of to be a priestess- the best way to 'hide' my power. As I learned. hide in plain site, let people think I was just a talented acoylye." she wringles her toes in the warm sand. The sun has risen now...
Serah Farron Serah Farron thinks about that "Well, I guess its normal a mother would want to protect their child there..." She smiles a bit "I lost my parents when I was young, its mostly my sister that took care of me. No special powers, but I was diligent in school to compensate, I didn't want to let my sister's efforts to keep us going to be wasted either.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "My elder sister... was the eir-apparent. She hadnled.. so much... but the problem was she didn't posses the 'raw' power I had'. I have power and finesse." She reached towards the rays o the sun and thin-strings-like spider webs appear briefly. "She could make them.. 'vissible."
Serah Farron Serah Farron tilts her head "What was those?" She doesn't quite understand there "Was that rays from the sun?
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "Its the Magic.. its best explained as everything- at least the way I understand it.. is apart of the world. has magic in it.. Or perhaps Life--- or energy.. I can touch and manipulate it.. to some degree... and make.. music."
Serah Farron Serah Farron thinks about that "... I guess that makes sense from a magic point of view. I don't know what's the extent of the powers I have right now. I know its making me stronger though. But I don't know how to use it yet.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos smiles. "Then perhaps its what we need. Stopping the heartless."
Serah Farron Serah Farron hmms? "Making me stronger? Well, that's a given, these things want our hearts and souls after all." She places a hand against her chest, just reminded of the painful feeling.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos nods. "They are... and we must stop them."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods as she stands up again, sighing "But I'm not sure about how to. They seem to be coming in increasing numbers all the time after all. Is there even a way to do that?
Serah Farron Serah Farron hms "If they are Heartless, how would they have a heart?
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos chukcles. " I meant strike them where it could do the most damaged"
Serah Farron Serah Farron ahs "So you meant their core. Sure, if we could find it would be easier... but I have no idea about it. I just... cast spells at them and made them fall, really.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos thinks. "Its start. Then we know they can be hurt.."
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods again "They scattered after many of them disapeared... they vanish into a sort of dark mist when they are defeated. Its eerie, really.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos wrinkles her nose. "Well that makes it hard. Following is near impossible then."
Serah Farron Serah Farron sighs softly, nodding as she walks along the sand a bit now, stretching her legs out "There are many things that are weird with them, and I'm sure I'm far from my last surprise with them...
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos lays back in the sand, the sun has come up completely over the horizon turnin the sky into a gorgeous riot of color. "Perhaps serah we can head into town and look about making a few bits of money and maybe get some of those cute.. shirts?"
Serah Farron Serah Farron hms "I have a bit of money with me... not sure what we can do to make more though, but there was some cute shirts in the stores when I was looking at them." She smiles at that.
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos grins. "Well we should find out. Perhaps we should charter a ship... maybe in travese there is more to do and make money in..
Serah Farron Serah Farron nods "That shouldn't be a problem... there's a ferry running from the mainland, that's the one I took to get here." She points toward te harbor "It runs a few times a day, so no worries there."
Elysiana Glyphanos Elysiana Glyphanos says, "Really.." she looks surprised. "ell that makes things easier." she states. "Lets head back!""
