|Subject Post 1Subject: A Declaration Of Wishes [Vicara Claim Thread] Sat Nov 28, 2020 1:26 am|| |
[ANY WHO OPPOSE HAS 2 WEEKS (11/28/20-12/12/20) TO RESPOND]
ENTER THE DREAMER
Artist: Carrotwine - Song: Dark Side Of The Road
Of all the lands native to this grand world, the one this royal had her eyes on was Vicara, above all. She had been planning this step for weeks - If she was to have any footing in this world, she had to claim a space of notoriety, of royalty. Ah, did one think her motives merely lied with grabbing power? That one would be wrong, above all, Calypso desired to care for her fellow demons. Even with the wears of time tearing at her mind, that base instinct to have something to protect and nourish laid deep within her, and thus lead her following actions.
Weeks in advance, she sent some slivers and hints of her arrival throughout the land, they needn't go terribly far, but enough to alert any who may be interested in what or who she was. Dream walking was quite a useful ability in accomplishing such a thing. Though, the time for rumor was done.
Now was the time to act, and declare.
Excitement sent shudders down her dark body as her form flew high above the clouds coating this rich land of Danava, taking the shape of a beast as she soon would settle down atop a water fountain within a small city - The exact place where she directed any and all whispers to seek out. She didn't expect any grandiose turnout, seeing a few curious souls look up and murmur about she who landed atop the structure. She smiled, face relaxed, hands woven behind her back as she sighed gently, tipping her head forward as she thought for a moment.
She had many, many deliberate talks with Pseudologoi before setting this into motion - Calypso by no means was a diplomat, so why not take lessons from the queen of twisted talks herself? With practiced words and thoughts towards eventualities, her head lifted, as she cleared her throat,"Greetings, passerby's, concerned ones, and of course curious onlookers. I thank you for taking interest in my appearance, and presenting yourselves to me."
Her voice was raised in a proper speaking tone, to call out to the crowd, to maintain poise and confidence even with a pit of worry in her stomach, she would raise a hand out, head lifted in pride,"You all know of the current chaotic state of our world, the loss of a war certainly did not help tempers simmer, did it? I'm certain you all have been in some way affected, from hearing about the riots and attacks, to even being a part of them. To that... I say..."
She bowed, her raised hand touching over her heart to convey such sensations of grief, "I, by many magnitudes, apologize on behalf of my family's actions. Yes, the woman you see before you today, her name is,"
She rose her head, to speak loudly and proudly once more, "Calypso Asthavon, Danava of Dreams and Nightmares, one of the youngest within our family. But, do not be alarmed,"
She wagged her finger softly, in a 'no no no' fashion, "I am not interested in any hostile takeovers or pillaging of these beautiful lands, no. Such savagery and barbarism in the name of volatile and reckless freedoms is not what I desire for any of you."
Tears formed in her eyes as she stepped down to the base of the fountain before continuing, hands behind her back, "I, like many of you, was a lost, misguided soul. I was deemed.. Too weak, too small, to be tended to, and thus I was cast aside, left to my own devices, perhaps to even die."
She paused, scrounging up those hurt sensations for a moment, before sighing, "However, such a notion was incorrect, I was no small, impotent creature,"
With a sway of her arm, she would let an arc of her energy be let loose, to create a little display of various sparkling flowers spawn and flutter across the crowd, "I am a beast of magic, potential, vigor! I grew into my own, to realize my wishes and dreams, of becoming a force that can contest such chaos and discard!"
Her aura radiated in the area, though it wasn't oppressive or suffocating, rather feeling like a warm breeze within the crowd as she smiled,"I thirst to see potential, growth, blossoming. I don't want the forces of chaos and madness to come by and snuff out whatever magnificent potential you all host within you, so here is my proposal."
Within a graceful burst of energy, her beastly traits became manifest - her humanoid form now presenting with dark draconic parts, mesmerizing wings flashing behind her back, and a dark tail extending around her body, beautiful obsidian scales adorning her body as shimmering horns formed on her head,"If I become Queen of this land, I can give proper guidance and leadership to all who live here. We shall become a grand nation of potential and growth, to embrace what makes us ourselves. I am not an iron fist to lay upon a gathering of peons, rather a mighty tree feeding the glorious forest beneath. You will be cared for, known, heard, and be allowed to spread your wings and fly. None will wither or fall to the abyss under my caring watch."
She sighed softly, smiling wide, "If any oppose my proposal, make it clear now. If I need to prove myself worthy of such an esteem, I certainly will."
