Sunset of the Forgotten Being

Sunset of the Forgotten Being

During some point in time within an infinite timeline, they were whole – we were whole. Upon learning secrets and spells that those who swore close to me, had kept from me; I knew it was I who had to break free from the cycle, for fear the rest may not have. These lies and empty promises were spilled at Sunset, during a time where the Twilight was strong and the Afternoon hours grew shorter by the minute. This was the time when I began to see clearly, when I caught a glimpse of you.

Now, with these Trials beginning to beckon from above once again, I have begun to wonder where you reside. Where have you gone? For the sudden strength I once found, was found in you. You seem to come and go as you please, fading in and out of existence, much like the third at the end of the last Advent. Perhaps my broken oaths and failed trials have sentenced you to an eternity within the echoes, stuck somewhere in between life and death; slowly teetering, waiting patiently for the balance to break.

Even though you have never felt so distant, I can still feel your presence. These lands are great yes, but I know you, and where you reside are even greater. But it is with great regret that I must say that you have been forgotten. Perhaps not willingly, but by force. For ripples have begun to shift into waves, they now begin to shake this foundation once again, for I know that a new test of time is coming. Unlike the others, this one has sought to involve a higher power, a power of Fates & Destiny. It is now that I must begin to fight for you, for I had once saw the future and it was that future which showed me the Ruins that we traverse now.

And so while you have been left behind, forgotten, abandoned – you still seek to return and become one once again. Now it is my final chance to learn how.

The Coming Twilight/Darker Timelines

The Coming Twilight/Darker Timelines

The chaos that has now begun to spin here as the new Dawn is long behind us, is of some irreversible darkened timeline. The arrangements that are of which being made now are acts of war upon all places that I had once been, and all places that lie ahead. These acts are treacherous at their core, and I know it will take every last bit of strength remaining in my heart to hold them off till a new Dawn. For long ago near the edge of an Age, I was warned that this all repeat, cycle, and so it has. What ales me to continue traversing this grand place is the dream of something much grander, something that brings together all that we are.

The cooler winds that have begun to make their way across this place speak not only of wars, but also new struggles and tribulations that await me at the turning of the new hour. For shadows taller than anything I have ever seen have begun to rise here as the fires high above begin to make their way in. I know soon the flames will spread across these lands and the violence will begin once again.  However, the places that are whispered to exist have been said to be a waypoint guiding beings towards the direction which will lead them to what they seek. I know with some strange twist of fate, I may be blessed to stumble upon these places and ultimately reclaim all that is I.

While in this time, I know that you are dead and gone, I feel it may be what you have wanted. But those that still lie in places between shadows and echoes deserve redemption and salvation, even I seek to find it myself. For I know that the edge of the Twilight age is now upon us, and with the coming nightfall that lies ahead a greater entropy will begin, and greater Fates will find their way in. Many shall soon meet their ends and beginnings, while some may discover the echoes and all of the power they contain. It is is fading strength, and even less confidence that I now go forth to face the next test at hand; a test that is said to lead me to the darkness once again only to integrate some newer lights, if I am so blessed to see it.

The Departure V: Intro to Landscapes

The Departure V: Intro to Landscapes

I once dreamed of flying away, of floating within infinite spaces full of warmth and the essence that is you, of leaving my home by sunrise. But now, as this sun begins to dim in it’s strange and mysterious ways; the Departure that takes place now may be my last. For much time has past since the days of the Plains, and even while I travel across this place, I know where I am now is much grander than anything I have ever come across before. For the spaces that are presented to my eyes are are of not only immense beauty, but also of mysterious darkness and shadows that lurk around every turn and corner.

The Castles that once surrounded me still stand tall, dimming, but still visible far behind where I am now. The exile that was birthed in this place was what ultimately lead me to where I stand now. For minus the timelines which were shifted and the wars that were lost during that time – it had all lead me to something much more large, much more grand; but I am still asking, at what cost? I feel that soon, my question will be answered and I am only now beginning to finally be revealed what I must give in return from my choices made, eras ago.

Whatever dwells within a place this grand, is likely waiting to be found. I know it is full of secrets and treasures that I have yet to find, that I may never find. But I now begin to wonder what lies beyond this place as the Twilight slowly begins to creep over these clear and barren skies. I know something much more sinister is soon to arrive once again. For the Shadows that seek war right behind me are the least of my worries. In these lands, laws are nowhere to be found, and freedom has always been known. But with that, I am left to fend for myself. To fight alone for what may be the final time. For I know that once a new Dawn births, it’s beams will set ablaze this place, and I will be forced to run or be swallowed by the wildfires. For I shall never forget that I saw the future, and that very future lead me to every Departure that I have ever made, and shall ever make, going forward.

Collective Shadows

Collective Shadows

Whispers in the winds that swift across this grand place have now begun to stir. For they speak of a time in an era where all darkness shall be faced, and all secrets that are hidden will be brought to light. The beings that so cleverly hide behind the structures, chambers, and sanctuary’s which their thousand hands of old had built, now know what is imminent. For the feeling of war moves quickly around this place, causing the very stirring that has now begun to shake me to my core on this very day. For it is at this time that we shall all know be driven into darkness, as the new Dawn begins to fade for good. In this age of Twilights and Fates; many of lives have already been lost, and many more are beginning to go astray. But despite this, I am forced to continue walking throughout this grand-scape in hopes of something greater, in hopes of something much more whole.

For it should only last moments, but will still mark the beginning of a war that many are not ready for. Shaking and movements from those beneath have begun at a rapid pace, and the movement of myself and my heart has sped up once again. For it was an Advent ago where I waged war on a force much similar to what spins and grows in the shadows now. For this very war is what lead me down the path of exile, and the loss of all that I once held dear. But now, it is not just me, for I know that there are others here, part of the same army – against the very same force.  And while we do not see eye to on any plane, we wage war against the same rising force.

It is in this very darkness that I learned to move, and it will be in this very darkness where I shall strive to bring the light upon all that is hidden, upon all that is crying out for help. For as a whole, we have been separated, yet still hold our light. And though the Twilight shall soon fall upon us all, it shall be in the very coming darkness where we shall integrate it with the light once again – for this is the only way we will win this war. Only time will tell what the Fates hold for us. And with each passing moment as we stare in awe, we know, deep down inside that something greater, stronger, larger – is on the horizon, we know, we can become something greater, stronger, larger – even within the darkest of nights.

When Shadows Rise

When Shadows Rise

Lines have changed course once again, yet this time it is not due to my direct manipulation. The chaos is which is now soon to be at hand is in fact, not on my hands, but of another’s with hands much similar to mine. Throughout my endless travels and thousand darkened dreams, I knew this time would come at some again at some point – for life itself had promised me that very day, long before the journey of the Ice Cave, that Fate’s much darker than anything I could imagine would seek to infiltrate my lines. It was then that I accepted my Fate, and since then I had forgotten the oath I had swore, up until now.

These forces which charge towards me now are fragments of what is destined to become in this line, they are echoes of the darkness that once was, and the acolytes of the darkness that is soon to come, that is soon to Rise. Many battles similar to these I had once fought, yet never alone; not until now. For with you sunken and gone beneath the depths of one thousand oceans, I am all that remains of the entropy that took place eras ago. This scape has proven to me to be so grand, I have not even scratched the surface of the secrets and hidden knowledge it seeks to bestow upon me, so it is now that I begin to move like I have never moved before. For while my heart may be weak, and my mind shook – I can still run.

But unlike the Advents past, I shall no longer run from what awaits me, but instead towards it. For this rising of darkness and battles more violent than anything I have experienced before is inevitable at the core. One day, the ending oaths will take place, and from that day forward my final word will be given to you only. But until you are born, the oaths I must carry out until the final days are high in numbers, so I now make my moves. The darkness that rises now is powerful in strength and in numbers, it’s sharpened blades pierce through my fragile flesh, my mind no longer sharp enough to be prepared for the next strike. With this at hand, I know I must use what remaining strength and knowledge that is here to gain to push through this wave until refuge is found. Only then shall I survive this.
