They had all remained silent after Alicia's projection had vanished. None of them said anything to the other, everyone just remained silent, mostly because they were all shocked by Alicia's ability to project her consciousness across realms. The goddesses were capable of doing such things, but a demi goddess, that hadn't been seen before at least by them. Jenniri was the first to break the silence, she hated quiet and tension mixed together. Especially when it involved this particular group. If Cassandra and Demonya were here it would be a serious issue.
"So, I take it we're all just going to sit and wait for Alicia to come back. You all realize that her reasoning for not fighting the Collective won't help or change anything, because the problem isn't Alicia it's us. The decisions we've made that brought us here is the issue at hand."
A nod from Sabrina and Carmen could be seen by Jenniri, Ivy and Helena stayed silent. Jenniri shook her head
"I know you can hear me, you always could. You were the spark that would be the undoing of the Collective. Look at what has happened, worse is coming. You are the only thing that stands in her way. Please join us."Alicia stood silent next to her mother within the Goddesses council chambers as she heard Jenniri's voice echo. Joy filled her heart at her friend's voice, though it pained her that she was incapable to go to their aid. During her training that statement had been made on several occasions, somewhere along the way she had cast aside the idea that she alone could bring down the Collective. The Goddesses saw her as some sort of warrior, she never wanted any of this; many had died fighting alongside her. She had been warned by members of the council that if she chose to wage war it would cost her a great deal. Alicia gritted her teeth as she saw how right they had been. Yet, she had been forced to wage war, it wasn't something that she had been a
Alicia stood alone in her mother's private chambers as she began to mentally prepare herself for what she was about to do. Going back in time was something she hadn't done before; she had felt Ivy and Helena both go into the past and change different things. Ivy had gone back to save members of the Chosen and her mother. Helena had gone back and saved the Phoenix Order from death, somehow, she had found a way to communicate with her past self and avoid death. Alicia needed to accomplish a similar task, though she would have to change her decisions on multiple events, or maybe it was just one. As she contemplated her options, she heard a rushing wind enter the room and then fade. She turned to see a familiar face staring at her, it was her own face. She looked upon her visitor with utter confusion."Who are you?"Alicia Greyshon stood in the center of the chambers; her eyes never left Alicia Iminz's. The two of them stood there for a long tim
Journal of Priestess Jeriuz, Written During the Events of the First Scism, 47,000 C.A."Long before the creation of celestial and mortal beings there was the Five Realms. Each containing locations of immense power and beings that were capable of wielding it. The most powerful of these beings were the dreaded God Collective and the Goddesses of Paradea. Celestial beings that held the seat of power within the First Realm. A power the God's believed only they were worthy of, a power that could corrupt even the purest of hearts. In the beginning we were at peace with one another and ruled side by side. Although, peace is but a fragile element and it can even be a deadly illusion when your ally is truly your enemy, plotting against you in the darkness. For eons we ruled together until one day everything we thought about our world was changed. In secret the Collective formed a unity and bega
Viennashal Iminz Goddess of Peace and High Ruler of Galaxia Prime stood out on one of the many balconies of her palace as she gazed out at the city of Alterria. Buildings that stretched high into the clouds and shined bright of the sparkling metal crystal as old as the Realm. She watched the dozens of traffic lanes full of hovercraft and airspeeders making their way from one sector of Galaxia to another. She closed her eyes and for a moment tuned out all the sounds of the city, she concentrated on the beings within the palace. She quickly was able to place her eight royal handmaidens, her valiant protectors who had been trained since childhood to protect her.She trusted them completely and considered them her closest allies outside of the Goddesses. Her handmaidens had protected her for the past seven eons that she had been a Goddess. They'd been blessed with immortality by her. Her decision to make them immortal had come as a request by them because they didn'
It was indeed something to behold, it stood as a testament of authority and seat of power for the Collective. The last time she had stood within its halls she was what the Goddesses of old called a new creature. A Celestial who still possessed some form of innocence and small power among beings whose prowess she wouldn't dare challenge. There had been those who did indeed try, they had either been banished or worse. She had made sure that she would never join their numbers, and rightly so. She knew that her sisters would one need her leadership and divine wisdom to one day challenge the Collective and bring justice upon them. Maybe, just maybe that day had come.Virdenasha the leader of the Council of Goddesses and Supreme Ruler of the Four Kingdoms sat in her seat within the Hall of the Ancients. Here she had aided in the governing of Paradea and led the Goddesses for many millennia. It was here only hours ago that she had learned of Viennashal Iminz and Lord A
The Goddesses had all taken their seats. They patiently waited for the Collective to enter the chamber. They would take their seats across the chamber as they always did. Viennashal sat impatiently, this was a day she had been trying to avoid, though in heart of hearts she'd known it would come. Her daughter was a secret she had kept from everyone for fourteen years. A secret that could and probably be the catalyst in breaking the civil law between the God's and the Goddesses of Paradea. Such an idea that this could become a reality filled her with pride and guilt. Guilt that she might be grooming her daughter to be fed to the wolves, yet if her plan worked, she would be the slaughtering the wolves.The chamber door opened and the God's silently took their seats. She keenly watched her husband take his seat amongst his brothers. Viennashal didn't hate the God's in fact, she respected some of them. Not all of them were considered tyrants, though after today that
Alicia and Cassandra walked towards the shuttle that would take them to Seledon. Its golden paint job mixed with the beaming sun upon blinded Alicia for a moment. As she looked away from the shuttle, she saw her mother following close behind her. She wondered what words of wisdom she would bestow on her before her departure. Also, the thought of what her mother wouldn't say that she really did want to say, but always chose not to. Alicia knew her mother constantly wanted to tell her something, something that she knew always weighed upon her. Though she never did say what it was, she would only give of the slightest indication that there was something she wanted to say.She stopped walking and let Cassandra go aboard the shuttle as she felt her mother's presence directly behind her. She quickly turned around to face her catching a hint of sadness in her eyes. The decision to have her go to Seledon must've been a difficult one. Alicia didn't realize it till now ju
3 Months Later.......Explosion after explosion went off around her as she opened her eyes. Before her was the scorched plains Galaxia. Fires plagued around her as she looked away from the plains and investigated the landscape further. On either side of her were young women in dark robes and armor. Each of them stood there watching something off in the distance, she noticed Cassandra among them. It was during this moment that she realized she was having some sort of vision.As she turned to see what was in the distance. Her eyes went wide as she saw thousands of alien creatures marching towards their position. First thing she thought of was how far in the future would all this take place. Second was who did that army belong to? Alicia knew that no matter what, the Collective had armies in case a war broke out. What threw off was the appearance of these soldiers. They were unlike any Cel
