I carried my own ashes to the mountains
He’d never had any intentions of giving anyone false hope; much like before the war. The concept that he, and many others, might meet their demise through the stronghold of Starfall was a possibility, and he didn’t want to render the notions that they’d skip through happily and easily. Between Remi’s experiences, the broadcasts, Vox’s ability to simply exist while they conversed and snagged important information, along with the dream, left him with that familiar semblance of impending doom and dread. If they knew and understood the depths of power lying in wait, or if it wasn’t a lure, he might’ve felt more confident, better, like in the days leading to a battle. But right now, they were playing with snares and the unknown.

What he did know was how to train, and at Kiada’s agreement, they could use that as a means of strength and distraction. While Belial left the tree they departed from, flying high and hooting for no real purpose, Zuriel leaned against nearby timber, rubbing her shoulder across the roughened bark.

At her statement he arched his brow, the depths of a half-felt smirk embedding there nonetheless. “But it can do something. Which is far better than nothing at all.” And gave them a chance in the end. “I can send some earth your way,” and then she could set it ablaze – out of range of the limbs and boughs, and in a safe space to explore her range. He did just as he promised, lifting out leaf litter, bark, pine needles from the ground with his incantations, and sending them her way.

Yeah.” Kiada says with a light huff, because he’s right, but it also still felt like nothing, given that she’s still dealing with the fact that she’s not as strong as she would like to be. Not for lack of trying or getting stronger, because she was. But dying once and having the reset of being Ascended and turned into an Ancient, it really did a number on the self confidence she had.

So, in an attempt to re-learn herself and her capabilities, staring down the barrel of Starfall felt like the world was against them. But, Kiada has always had a bit of a pessimistic streak and a thirst for danger, so while remaining in the circle of Deimos’ fire, she watches as the earth is lifted from the ground. Calculating and smooth, Kiada plucks a stream of fire from the circle around her and jets it out in an arc to try to catch the leaf litter and pine needles at the very least.

The focus, for now, could be on fire and earth, and not the breadth of apprehension continuing to weigh down his shoulders. He watched as Kiada’s flames engulfed bits of leaf litter and needles, extended far more than he’d seen before. “Gotten better,” his brow arched and he smirked, intending to goad and incite while still complimenting and encouraging.

Again, he raised the earth from the ground, but with more intention behind it. Now that he understood she’d gained in her aspects, he could up the ante a little. She’d always enjoyed a challenge. From the depths of the snow, he snagged at sticks and soil, faster, swifter, and launching them towards her once again – striving to see if she could catch and pulverize the ones aimed for her features.

His compliment is met with a huff of pride from the Harpy as the flame dances along the litter and needles, watching as they spark and turn to ash, drifting on a cold wind. “Thanks.” She says, trying not to distract herself as she collects another bout of fire between her fingers. “My fire has gotten stronger and I can hide my horns and tail now.” She offers, pausing briefly to wind the flame up between her hands.

It extends out into a fan of fire in front of her, aiming to make a kind of shield to burn away the sticks and soil as it comes barreling toward her, perfectly fine should she need to brush off any ash or dirt in case she missed some in this next attempt.

His brow arched again at the summation, a proud smile at her accomplishments to follow suit. Kiada had been in multitudes of work, given her revival, and progression was to be celebrated, and then of course, tested. “Good.” He watched as the fan of fire altered into a shield, taking and eating away at the pilfered soil and earth.

But as he lifted more from the ground to offer increased portions, he found something else tugging at the earth. “Some void frostblooms, if you are up to it,” came on a wrinkled nose and embellishment of a challenge, plucking the nasty vermin straight out of the ground. Instead of hurtling it at her, however, since it presented a unique threat if it touched her, he left it hovering, bobbing, the roots dangling. If she didn’t want to maul it, he gladly would; but here was an opportunity for further inferno investment.

Hearing his compliment over her announcement of her strengthened abilities, and satisfaction curls on her face in place of any previous anxieties to watch her fanned out flame demolish the soil and earth. She continues to curl more fire around her, preparing for another onslaught of dirt.

Until he announces it’s a void creature, and the fire flares a fraction as she watches Deimos bob it in front of her. “Oh yeah. Absolutely.” After having to suffer through collecting a multitude of the creatures, gathering them for the regional quest to prevent them from entering, Kiada’s more than ready to decimate the frozen blooms. She shoots a stream of flame directly at one of them, aiming to burn through the cold and ice to catch it aflame.

Hearing her agreement was enough to bolster the efforts, and he watched as her inferno engulfed and persuaded the frostbloom into imminent distress; leaves crumbling, curling within, burning fronds and ends. It wasn’t quite enough to fully devour and consume it though, so after a pause, Deimos contributed his own – and the mastered portions added the fuel to Kiada’s already blistering ends. The void cretin met its end swiftly thereafter; turned to ash and crumbling down into the remains of leaf litter and snow.

Granting her a challenging wink, he noticed that slight bout of artificial dread still hadn’t gone away, and glancing downward, saw that there were more sprouted from the ground. Shaking his head and utilizing his incantations once more, he snagged at the smaller components, lifting them upwards for Kiada to take another clear shot – confident she’d be able to bring these down entirely on her own.

She doesn’t demolish all of it, unfortunately, but she’s close. And that satisfaction is enough for her to feel a glimmer of pride linger in her bones. So much so, that she doesn’t even mind Deimos’ help with the rest of the destruction. She returns the fire to the one that Deimos keeps around her for warmth, until at least she captures his wink and her brow lifts, iceberg gaze returning to the space they had just rid it of that terrible dread inducing flower.

Only to find more, smaller ones, like the seeds had spread. And as Deimos lifts the flowers, she collects another section of the fire, gritting her fanged teeth with a hiss that only just now begins to leave her lips, she spouts it off toward the smaller blooms, aiming to destroy and turn to ash on the wind. “I hate all of these void things.” Kiada grumbles in the process. All of the void creatures and flowers, so over it that she’s more than happy to focus on destroying these.

There were a few more easily decimated too, and he kept lifting them in intervals so they could be dispatched and destroyed just as quickly as they surfaced from the ground. Eventually, those too wound down into nothing, and the familiar outline of the leaves, snow, branches, and bramble remained a more comforting sight. “Do you want to keep going?” Uncertain if she’d had enough, and wrapping more of his own flames around her in a shield of safety to continue warding off any chill.

But her comment had him thinking, and knowing there were some who wouldn’t be attending the upcoming gathering – whether or not that’d be to their benefit wouldn’t truly be clear. There’d likely be roles designated and plots unfurled, and he didn’t want to leave the Harpy out of the loop if she’d be interested in striving just as much as everyone else – because as Safrin had said, one portion dealt solely in fortune and luck. If enough of them strived…he sighed, head tilting to study her. “I did find out from Safrin there are ways to gain back the regions lost to them,” his jawline jutting out amidst the remains of the void, and the air in his threshold spread the ash outward.

It had taken a lot of focus for her to manage to get the fire to work in her favor – upgraded as it is instead of it being mastered just yet, Kiada finds herself panting a little as she watches the void plants and dirt and pine needles become ash, crackling and burning and collapsing in on itself. Her iceberg gaze flits back to him as she releases the fire again, watching it soak into the shield he makes for her as she shakes her head and flashes a small apologetic smile. “No. That was exhausting.” She admits a bit sheepishly.

Already she’s stepping over to join him at his side, unknowing why, exactly, he chooses to study her but allowing it all the same. Her gaze flits from him to the remnants of the void creature she’d burned, before her head tilts toward him and her brows lift. “Really? How?” She asks, realizing that might be a beneficial thing to tell Danta about just in case there were any worries of it spreading down to their region. Especially with only the Inner Quarter being safe from the beasts.

The exertion had been enough for her, and he solidified the notions with a nod, keeping the fire around her still. He maintained the smile at her admittance, because it was better than forcing herself into reels and wells of exhaustion; he’d known the sentiments plenty, and while he understood the side effects for Abandoned, he wasn’t certain what it would be for Ancients; likely still not grand.

At her curiosity, he nodded. Rather than speaking it aloud, and forcing her to memorize it to take back home with her, he produced a single piece of paper from his creation adornments, along with charcoal, and began to scrawl it out. “Some will require great strength, others luck and fortune, and the last seems to be resources. I am going to let everyone who attends the meeting know these things too.” Handing over the parchment, he let her peruse, waiting for some of the similarities of yesteryears to unfurl, or any other inquiries to settle into the air. “Hopefully, if many of us have to go to Starfall, others can be working on these.” The work divided, and perhaps – conquered.

She settles while she regains her breath and the warmth of the flame surrounding her, warding away any of the snow or chill in the air, watching him produce the paper and charcoal, scribbling it all down so she doesn’t have to memorize it. It’s something the Harpy flashes a brighter smile at, thankful to not have to worry about mixing anything up.

When it’s handed to her and she reads it over, she listens as he offers some more explanation, before tucking it away into her pocket, neatly folded to pass along to her Theocrat. “I’m sure Danta would like to know about anything we can do to try and fix it.” And look at her, doing her job, something she’s strangely proud of. “I’ll pass it along to him.” Flashing Deimos a fanged smile, she straightens up, feeling a bit better finally about this entire ordeal. Perhaps for the first time.

Keeping the fire remaining, a brilliant and blistering shield, his head tilted vaguely, half a laugh smothered between his forbearing expression. He didn’t mind her sharing information with her leader – it was something all the regions (save for Dahlia’s enterprise) ought to have known, and he wasn’t certain who else had received letters from Ronin. It was bound to be him and likely the multitudes of demigods, but otherwise settled into the unknown for him; the answer would come when they all met anyway. “Good.”

Beginning to turn back the way they came, for it’d be better to get her out of the cold sooner rather than later, he couldn’t help a snort. “Do you think Danta will want to do anything about it though?” Zuriel returned his motives with a trot alongside, clearly yearning to indulge herself with warm flames beside a hearth, and Belial seemed to pout from overhead.
