There is a memorial to Logos’ father in the garden. It is a simple monument, merely an old, rusted blade embedded in the earth. It is humble and straightforward, and it has been here for as long as Logos could remember, from the very beginning of their many lives. Even back then, the blade was rusted over. But of course it was. This had been here for as long as mother had.
It is not a grave. There is nothing to bury. Logos’ father left nothing behind with his death. When Logos dies, they will not leave a body either, and nor will mother, if death comes for her. They will simply bleed into space and join the background radiation. That is how it is.
Sometimes mother comes down and spends time with the memorial. Talking. And talking. She can si…Read more >
A law is a highly advanced type of magical weapon pioneered and utilized primarily by Heaven. Each law is a conceptual weapon, an idea physically incarnated to be used for specific purposes - usually supporting Heaven’s rule and intent. Most laws were made in Heaven, to be used by high-ranking angels in pursuit of Heaven’s goals, but despite their best efforts, the use of laws has spread beyond Heaven’s influence. There are even those completely opposed to Heaven who wield their own, either stolen and repurposed or created from scratch.
Kept within a user’s soul as encrypted information, a law is manifested for use as a weapon in any number of shapes. Due to their conceptual natures, laws affect those they strike on a more fundamental level t…Read more >
Sacred programs devised by Heaven’s Luminary Sovereign, angels are a species of mass-produced magical lifeforms and saddled with the burden of carrying out her will and enacting her divine vision. Artificial in nature, angels are descendants of seraphs and are ultimately a class of star spirit, bits of astral dust given shape and structure by a digital soul and halo. The vast majority of angels exist in Heaven and follow the orders of its archangels, the first of their kind and the children of their God, who have taken over her divine position in her absence, the Archangel of Justice foremost among them.
Intricate works of magic, angels were brought into existence through a combination of the two most fundamental branches of magic, the operat…Read more >
- A mage is more properly known as an agent, as in “one that acts or exerts power”. Separated from the rest of the universe, an agent is essentially a miniature universe all their own, with complete control over their destiny, free to pursue whatever future they wish. They do this through magic, the art of using one’s understanding to control Fantasy, the stuff of sheer willpower and imagination.
When an individual becomes an agent through the use of magic, they fundamentally change the nature of their soul and undergo a spiritual evolution to better accommodate this. As a result, agents have a number of inherent abilities and traits, and some that aren't inherent but widely used and more or less omnipresent, and all of which become more powerfu…Read more >
Alice should’ve killed EQUINOX years ago.
She had a billion and one chances. Countless opportunities to exploit, without a single reason for EQ to have her guard up around her. And there sure were plenty of reasons to suspect that she might one day become this kind of person, right? The music she listened to was so fucking violent sometimes. She had more than a bit of a temper, too. Murderous little cunt, hiding her rotten true self in plain view all these years…
She’s going to get what’s coming to her.
Unfortunately, that will have to wait.
After all, Alice is currently dying.
It’s a wonder that she can think clearly at all, though those thoughts came to her with difficulty, like sifting through grain in search of some tiny little treasure. Th…Read more >
