megalomania
animanga original fantasy
Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

254 | open | he's flower-watching, who wants to join?
If there was still some shred of ‘humanity’ left within him, he’d have settled down in Linden and built himself a house amongst this field of flowers that had unbelievably large heads and seemingly followed the sun as it made its way through the sky. However, this was not the case.

Although, for some reason he still found comfort with walking through the field of flora. He’d learned the locals called these beautiful things ‘sunflowers’, and they were aptly named: with large brown ‘heads’ and brilliant yellow petals that followed the sun throughout its course in the sky during the course of the day; accompanied by stalks that stood tall and proud, he knew that they deserved the name.

The only problem with them was that they had a tendency to wither too quickly when plucked out of the ground or taken from where they bloomed, and that made him distressed. While he couldn’t properly display ‘sadness’ anymore, he couldn’t help but feel distraught when he would see these sunflowers being picked clean out of the ground.

Why didn’t the humans leave them alone?

he’d decided he needed some time to chill, and was now standing over an outlook that faced a massively large field of these sunflowers as far as the eye could see. If he could lose himself within them, he’d definitely do that. But of course, he didn’t have an idea that the silence and peace would be shattered by the arrival of other individuals who’d ventured out to these fields.

Raymond needed something to do. Well, honestly anything that wasn't hanging too much around the acolytes without Hala was fine for him. At least it didn't make him extremely uncomfortable. And so his curious venturing led him to a large field of sunflowers. Curious. It reminded him of his dear sister; how was she doing now anyways? Would she keep her promise?

Raymond shook his head and sat slightly in the shade before something told him that another presence was also watching the fields with him. Standing up, he made his way over to the outlook quietly, standing within the shade.

"It's rare to see someone so deeply invested in flowers." Raymond put bluntly. "It reminds me of my sister."

205 | @kyoka | no there are no zombies on the lawn
“It… it does?” he murmured quietly, before realizing that he was no longer alone. Quickly turning around, he then saw he was no longer alone—someone had joined him at the overlooking expanse of flowers that were facing the sun. “I… they bring me comfort,” he began, seemingly reaching out to touch them before sighing. “Problem is that they die too quickly if you move them. Isn’t that a shame?”

After he’d put his arm down, he took a second glance at the other that had joined him, standing in the shade. “Is something the matter? Why don’t you come out of there and join me? Or are you allergic to the sun?” he asked, tilting his head slightly to one side.

And, really now? I find it strange that not too many…men…are into flowers. Most think that flowers are exclusively for ladies but I beg to differ… he thought to himself, waiting to see if his companion would care to join him out in the sun. For some reason he was half-expecting to see a horde of undead headed their way, and one of the few ways to defeat them was with the power of the flowers he was now admiring.

Wasn’t that weird?

"Living beings aren't too much different, I'd argue." Raymond simply replied, standing still in his position. He'd rather not move and get annoyed by sunlight. That way too much effort than he was willing to invest. When asked about it, Raymond simply shrugged. "I prefer the shade." he simply explained, not really giving too much detail. It was unnecessary.

His gaze shifted to the sunflowers, the sunlight reflecting off their yellow petals. It was...quite a sight to behold honestly. Raymond had to just briefly wonder for a moment how his sister was doing now. Did she still appreciate flowers such as these? He doubted she would, what with all the death she could predict from even holding the same sword as he. He shook his head and simply continued staring out at the field and at the new face in turn.

"...You didn't introduce yourself. Wary?" he asked, not moving from his spot. It was shady and comfortable and there was no way in hell he was gonna move just for conversation.

234 | @kyoka | He's a little wary, yes... but he's not readily going to admit that!
“Fair enough,” he said at the remark about his companion not willing to move out of the shade. Truth be told, it was getting a little too warm for that matter, so he’d decided to join the other as well. The sun had peeked out from behind what little clouds were in the sky, and he really didn’t like being exposed to the heat too much, either.

“Not really, to be fair. I normally save the introductions for much later—at least when other people introduce themselves first,” he continued. There was a nagging something, something that was telling him to be careful around his companion, so it was better to err on the side of caution and wait it out. At least, if his companion introduced himself first, he’d be able to come up with a reasonable alias to call himself by, in the meantime.

I’m still getting a bad feeling about him. And when that instinct starts bothering me, it’s usually not a good sign… he continued to himself in the back of his mind, watching and waiting. He decided to ‘fish’ around for more information in the meantime, at the very least.

“With living beings, they can at least move around… unlike these flowers. It’s like they can tell when they’re not rooted in the ground anymore, before they wither and dry up,” he said presently, sitting down on the grass.

Raymond nodded curtly. "Fair point. I do the same myself." he said. He watched as the unknown man approached him in the shade. Not like he cared about what the man did, that was his choice. Perhaps he too was afraid of the sun or something. He then mentioned something about humans moving around while flowers couldn't and Raymond nodded again. "Life is a never-ending cycle. People live and people die. Just like those flowers."

Raymond wasn't exactly the best at conversation but the wariness and apparent awkwardness there was that hung in the air made Raymond twitch a bit. Uncomfortable. He redirected his attention back at the man and then asked, "Not a fan of the sun?"

231 | @kyoka | An alias was used!
“When it’s right overhead and there’s no wind, it can get really uncomfortable, yes… but if it’s like this; not too hot and not too humid then I’m fine with it. Although ironically, these flowers thrive best when the sun is shining right on them. Didn’t you notice that their heads seemingly turn to follow it throughout the day?” he remarked, right as the sun came out from behind the clouds it was hiding in and bathed the area with a very warm glow.

Well, he doesn’t seem to be the type to be too suspicious… he thought to himself as he then laid down on the grass to squint up at the sky. “…name’s Nikolai,” he muttered, going for his standby alias name—he really didn’t want to be found out so soon, right? Not in front of the flowers he so admired, at the very least.

He then remembered something about what his companion said about having a sister. “Your sibling sounds interesting… what other flowers do they like? Asides form these, I mean, he inquired a few moments later.

Well, better to pass the time with small talk now—at least nobody’s looking for me yet. And besides, if he was a bad guy I’d have attacked him on sight… but not within range of the flower fields… he continued to muse in the back of his head.

Raymond tilted his head, somewhat confused by this response. Normally people would just disregard his logic, but this one seemed to play along with him. Curious. He nodded, his attention back to the flowers. "Plants are like people. They're attracted to what gives them life."

The stranger then introduced himself as Nikolai. Well. He seemed to have broken the caution with giving out a name. Perhaps he was opening up or something? Perhaps. "Raymond." he simply said, not offering a more proper greeting. "Nikolai" then asked about his sister and Raymond sighed. "In particular, she loved tulips. And roses. They were bright and vibrant in color, and that is what she appreciated."
