Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A




There was nothing but mountains for as far as the eye could see. As the storms ahead started to bellow and rumble with thunder, the downpour of rain was quite the relaxing backdrop for one to lose themselves in. It is why a gem-eyed demon remained in a full-body cloak as the downpour continued onward; spiraling sparks of lightning in the process. It brought a smile to her face because this coldness contrasted against her own radiating warmth of emerald energy that melted the ground around her.

With each step, this pale-skinned devil grew closer to her destination before she came to a house at the top of these hills. Behind this door was the mother of one of her children and it was time to press open that doorway to confront a rather uncomfortable subject. Having some form of respect for this person, this demoness gave a hard knock on the door to make sure the owner of this home had time to prepare for herself.

In this time of waiting, however, there was no telling how the potential encounter was going to go down. As this devil started chuckling to herself, it was almost refreshing in a morbid sense to have this anticipation building in her chest. Not many things made her feel that wild spark these things, but this demented, black subject certainly did bring up emotions.

To think that her own daughter that changed her heart so much had passed. -- was maddening. So even she knew these quiet chuckles to herself were just masking that pain. Yet, that is the beauty and madness behind emotions, were they not?

The Angel of Conflict




ARIANDA VAEL


Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves

Oh how Arianda loved the solitude and quiet of the mountains. There was still little shine compared to how things had been in Minatumi, or when Arianda was a Shadowfall royal; but the living situation she was in was the best for Ari. Why, she was able to keep to herself and not bother with any humans that would want to kill her just for existing. Such reasons were why Arianda gladly enjoyed the solitude that was provided to her by... by. Just the thought of Ari's daughter, Calypso, was enough to tinge her emotional state. She had been gone, gone for too long; long enough that everything was worrying Ari more than she would be willing to admit. The last time Ari had seen her in this house had been, well, a meeting that was far too melancholic overall. She was suffering, and now Ari had heard neither hide nor hair of the girl. Was she to get news soon? Perhaps, perhaps not.

Rain beat against the windows, against the roof, as Arianda stared at the storm outside, her eyes drawn heavily to the window that showed the weather all too well. She remained captured by it, as if she somehow knew the rain was trying to color her mood to something terrible to come. But why would that be? She had no reason for sadness or misery. Or did she? Frankly, Arianda had no honest clue. As far as she knew, there was nothing more to be sad about in the world than the reasons that had already existed before. Soon, the rapping of knuckles against a wooden door broke the spell that took hold of Ari.

She snapped out of her reprieve, her eyes, and head, snapping to the direction of the front door. Her awareness spread outwards, and the presence she felt... well, simply, it puzzled her; and it also excited her. It was Mana. She had missed the woman far more than Ari cold ever have admitted to anyone. Despite the past, despite everything, Mana was still held in a special place of Ari's heart. Which was why Mana had a very short wait at Ari's door before the demon had finally composed herself, and her attire, enough to accept the Queen of Demons into her home and hearth.

The door opened, perhaps a touch too fast, and a pair of arms, that nearly matched Mana's pale complexion, shot forward and pulled the woman into a rather loving bearhug; a hug engaged by none other than Arianda herself. In Ari's excitement, she had returned to her true form, carefully burying her face into Mana as she held the demon Queen. Mana would be able to tell how deeply Ari had missed the woman, even if her actions already partially betrayed as such. Moreover, she would likely be able to feel the worry that pulled at Arianda due to how a certain daughter of theirs was now missing. Of course, Arianda knew not the truth behind such a thing.

As Arianda carefully pulled Mana into her house, outside of the rain and cold, and into the warm house that likely felt too warm for what was about to be conveyed. Regardless, Arianda did not wish to let the embrace she had started end. Eventually, the demon loosened her grip, so that she was no longer giving Mana a bear hug, and looked up at the woman; giving her a warm, but gentle, smile. She knew not why Mana had visited, but she was glad to see the woman after so long. However, the color of Mana's emotions did give Ari some pause. What was wrong? What might have happened to color Mana's emotions in such a sad way? What happened?

Arianda found herself growing slightly apprehensive, but, she slowly moved an arm up to lower Mana's hood, if Mana had not already done so or if the hood had already been down, and she held that gentle smile for a bit longer before speaking.

"It is good to see you again, after so long, Mana. But, if I may, what brings you here? Is something the matter?"

Arianda's blue eyes stared into those green gems of Mana's eyes; searching for an answer before the words were given. However, Arianda knew she had to wait; knew she had to wait for the moment where Mana revealed the reason why she had visited. That reason, unbeknownst to Ari, would bring the little demon a great deal of sorrow; but as long as Mana was there, perhaps the demon could take the news. Then again, who knew? Losing a child... it was unlike any other loss.

Despite how glum the atmosphere was, it was of no surprise to Mana that Arianda would try to find some warmth in the circumstance. It is why a slight chuckle exited the pale lips of the Asthavon as she was pulled into a heated hug by the smaller demon. Truth be told, The Demoness didn't mind, but she knew she'd have to rip apart this lovey, sweet scene soon enough. So, to at least give her something good in return before her deathly gift, The Queen returned the physical affections as she gently stroked the hair of the excited Vael.

"Well, aren't you lil' miss excited?"

There was a brief flash of that jovial swang in her voice, but even The Demoness herself knew this was a weak front as she barely felt like expending the energy to keep that facade up; in spite of her own wispy emerald energy beginning to envelop and soothe Arianda. The act of their embrace was anything but false, yet she knew she couldn't keep up the emotional bullshit for too long. It wasn't her style to beat around the bush after all.

Regardless, Mana followed suit into her home once Arianda let go and pondered how to even cut through this tender loving scene without breaking her heart in two. It is why The Demoness's eyes did not seem to meet the other woman's as she simply assessed a good place to sit down for the news she was going to deliver. As cliche as it was, it wasn't something The Queen had a desire to speak of while standing up. Given the bonds that demons have for their children, it was akin to ripping out a piece of your heart when your beloved children die. Even as vile as Mana was, there were definitely parts of herself that felt broken in light of it. The only difference is that The Demoness is used to such aching pains of madness by her very nature, yet she was unsure of how well the Vael would handle such maddening pain.

"Come, sit with me, dear. It's absolutely depressing out there, perhaps relaxing a bit before I tell you why I'm here will do you justice."

Finding the nearest couch, Mana took it upon herself to take a seat as she leaned backward trying to gaze outside of the storm as it felt like an outward manifestation of the storm that was inevitably going to consume their souls. Still, The Demoness knew it was road that had to be traveled down. So like any other battle, she'd crack a faint smile and prepare to endure the shitstorm to come.

ARIANDA VAEL


Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves

Of course Arianda was little Ms. Excited. Despite everything that Ari had been through with Mana, she still loved the demon with all her heart; even if the news Mana carried with her was less than pleasant, it wouldn’t break the bond they had. Regardless, the demon was still attentive to Mana’s overall mood. The swing in her voice was subdued, false. Hell, even how Mana carried herself was far from normal; for Mana at least. However, Arianda wasn’t soon to question Mana about the reasons for why she seemed so subdued. The demon simply followed Mana’s example and seated herself next to the demon queen. Perhaps Arianda was being a bit too cuddly, but, it was a bit of an occupational hazard. Loving hugs and physical affection meant that being with Ari would mean getting hugged. However, the demon restrained herself and simply sat close to Mana; allowing a bit of that manic energy to slowly die down and relax.

Afterwards, Ari’s mind returned to pondering the reasons why Mana could be here. Of course, the most obvious reason that popped into Ari’s mind was to “pay a visit”. However, Arianda knew enough about Mana to understand that her presence here wasn’t just to shoot the shit. Something was wrong, in some way, and whatever it was appeared to be urgent enough, or bad enough, to warrant Mana coming here personally.

However, Mana was quite right that relaxing would do Ari justice before Mana properly breached the reasons as to why she was visiting Ari’s abode. Arianda simply nodded in agreement, relaxing into the comfortable couch in quiet content.

It took a little bit, probably around 10-30 minutes of silence as Arianda calmly leaned into the couch, and against Mana slightly, before the demon finally broke the long, relaxing, silence.

“I hope there has been enough time to relax but… Mana, what have you come to tell me? Your dour mood concerns me. Please, tell me. I want to know.”

Arianda knew not of what she asked. However, her aptitude to sense emotional fluctuations at least gave her a general idea of the gravity. It was something… something sad. Something so deeply sad that Arianda could only grin and bare it, wait for it… and perhaps react accordingly. But the news Mana would present her with was something she was not, no one was really, prepared to receive. After all, how could anyone properly deal with losing a child?

Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A




Savoring the moment of relative peace before the storm, The Asthavon made a dull mental note to perhaps spend more time like this when there isn't such grave news to bear. Seemed almost unfair that such an occasion would be marked with tragedy, but perhaps that was just the way this mad world worked. When her lush green eyes closed, the demoness figured when she re-opened that such a hard answer would escape her lips. There would be no going back and she just mentally prepared herself to confront that rapidly approaching reality.

"Ya' aren't wrong, dear. My whole mood is bullshit. There isn't an easy way to say any of what I'm about to tell you."

While her voice remained still and somber, the eyes of The Queen opened once more to reveal a rather loathsome and cold expression. It was now or never in her mind when it came to being the messenger of bad news.

"It seems that our daughter has done something which she cannot come back from. The ultimate act of purging her existence...and our grandchild."

Mana stopped as she recalled her own feelings of that time. To feel something that brought you life, joy and a sense of joy be taken by the jaws of an empty death always brought with it pain. A dull, aching for something which no longer existed. In some sick way, it quelled her maddening powers to ponder such a reality that not even her powers could bridge the gap between. Savoring the loss of her baby and the snuffing of a life that had not even had the chance to experience this world's delights and horrors was rather -- awful.

Still, rather than reflecting too much on her own inward decay, The Demoness did something peculiar. Not comprehending how Arianda would take such heavy news, The Asthavon just continued to hold on to her as if she needed something firm, real and present to grasp in this new reality where the soul of what brought them together no longer existed. To her, she had already grieved alone in silence, but this was still a fresh wound for the smaller demon to process and perhaps it was easier to go through with another at your side.

"I will be here for as long as you need, but our Calypso is no longer of this world I'm afraid."

ARIANDA VAEL


Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves

Well, at least Arianda was quite right about why Mana was here, and about her rather dour mood. However, of course, the demon could only wait for the news that would likely soon come crashing down. Arianda could only wonder as she listened to Mana say how this was not something easy to say; nor was there an easy way to put it. However, Arianda listened with somewhat bated breath; at least until she took a very sudden inhale.

Wait... What did she say? Purging of her existence? And her grandchild?

Arianda couldn't move, she couldn't even breath. Ari's mind could only comprehend the ramifications of what Mana spoke. Her brain didn't want to accept it, not even in a slight Iota. Calypso was so tough... but, clearly that toughness had lead to the ultimate end. As if to try and confirm, or prove wrong, Arianda opened up that connection to the Asthavon's. Immediately, she felt Mana, and the honest sorrow that seemed to radiate from her. However, no matter how hard Arianda searched and searched through that connection that was shared between the Asthavon's and those favored by them... nothing.

The world came crashing down around Arianda as she leaned heavily into Mana, the words Mana spoke being registered, but not wholly heard. Indeed, Calypso was no longer of this world. Danava or no, what she was is now gone. No matter how you look at it, she was gone, gone from this world never to return. The demon could feel the immense sorrow crashing upon her like a freight train; Calypso was... was dead.

Immense anger filled the demon's being. But none of it was directed at Mana, no; all that anger was directed at Arianda herself. At being so helpless when it came to Calypso. She could never have done anything for her daughter, not even when she departed from this world. The demon looked up at Mana, the sorrow evident in her blue eyes as she leaned up to give the Queen of Demons a kiss on the cheek; gently extricating herself from the embrace.

"Gimme... Gimme a sec, Mana... I'll be right back."

Her voice was stiff, stiffer than the board her back had become; cracked and threatening to break from emotion. Soon, Arianda walked to the door, still stiff, and flung it open with obvious lack of restraint. There was little sound aside from the storm outside, the crack of thunder, and the stomping of feet that quickly faded. However, the loud cracking and snapping of a tree being felled in some way split the relative silence brought by Arianda's absence. It was a short time before Ari returned, her right hand broken and bloody despite how rapidly it was regenerating. She slammed the door with her tail, drying herself absentmindedly as she moved back over to Mana and flopped onto the demon Queen's lap.

Almost immediately after Arianda curled into a ball against Mana. All too quickly, Arianda broke into horrible, heart breaking sobs. It wasn't loud, no. She had no reason to keen or scream. But, her cries were evident that of a mother. A mother who had lost her child long before they should have been taken. She hiccupped and sobbed, burying her wettened face into Mana's bosom as she wrapped her still good hand, and arm, around Mana; given her right hand had not completely healed from her destroying it against a pine tree.

Eventually, the demon broke free of her sobs long enough to speak, sniffing a tiny bit as she dared not remove her face from the comfort it was in.

"If...If you will stay for as long as I need, then you might be-be here for a while, M-Mana... I dare not try and come to terms with this alone.. So please… stay for a while."

Arianda pressed herself rather hard against the Queen of Demons, against the woman she loved so greatly, and let herself cry herself into some form of 'calm'. She may not exactly be able to truly calm herself down, but Mana's presence was certainly welcoming during such terrible news. Luckily, the demon's emotions conveyed her desires better than her words. She wanted nothing more than to just simply spend time with Mana, and to help them both come to terms with the news that was currently rocking Arianda's world.

Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A




Processing the sorrow of losing that which was part of your own essence was indeed a hard thing to digest for any creature with a semblance of connection to their children. While there did exist beings that held no bond to that which spawned from them, the two of these demons did not seem to fall into that category. The stench of grief was foul as the atmosphere around them turned quite loathsome as the smaller of the pair started to let the emotions hit the floor.

Though, it was rather peculiar that the other found the energy to even muster up the desire to kiss The Queen's cheek in a time of distress. Yet, at the same time, it made all the sense in the world. When that which used to exist becomes immaterial, you cling to that which is material. And while the sands of their daughter no longer exist in this realm, the warmth of Mana still did. So, to that effect, her essence anchored the other demon and she allowed her to do whatever was necessary to grieve.

"Do as you wish, dear. I will be here for as long as you need."

There was no judgment heard in those ginger words which escaped Mana's pale lips. The Demon Queen knew quite well the storm that was boiling in the soul of Arianda. These potent feelings of grief, anger and confusion brewed seeds of madness in the hearts of many men, women, and children alike.

From all the scenes of war she produced in her lifetime, it was hard for the demon not to taste the scent of utter dismay flowing from the Vael. Indeed, any creature with empathic capacities yielded the potential to tap into those maddening pulsations of raw emotion. It nourished this demoness, and she knew the danger that the Angel of Conflict was in all too well if her own presence wasn't her to deter such a thing from taking hold of her soul.

So, when Arianda came back into the room with her bloodied hand, curled up into a ball of her own sorrow; The Queen just took her hand and gently stroked the Vael's hair. Perhaps not many words were needed at this moment, but not being alone in a time of despair could alter the trajectory of a soul to a staggering extent. It wasn't her place to tell her not to feel this way, nor did she desire much to pacify her to remove all trace of such an emotion. Instead, Mana felt she was here to just let Arianda be rather than use any of her infinite powers to dull her into a dazed state of drained madness.

"My time is mine alone and not many can dictate the limits of it in this world. I will stay with you as your heart continues to piece itself together and long after that point as well. You were my child's mother and nothing will ever change the love I feel for you or her."

And upon saying that, the devil kept to her word. She soon kissed Arianda's forehead as she just laid there in silence; letting only the rumbling of thunder echo in the room as the two despondent devils nursed each other wounds in their twisted affections.

ARIANDA VAEL


Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves

Sorrow was the only thing that could honestly flow from Arianda at the moment. Calypso, her darling daughter, was gone. Sure, she was old enough to make her own choices... but everything she was doing up to this point, up to the point where she died perhaps, was nothing for herself. Always about others, never about her own health or well being. Knowing such things honestly and truly caused Ari a great deal of regret and sadness, especially to know that there was nothing she could have done to prevent it; even if some facet of her being truly needed to think that there was something more she could have done, she knew such a thing was impossible. Caly was always, as far as Ari knew, too stubborn for her own good. So, the demon simply cried herself to silence as she laid in the embrace of Mana, her right hand slowly popping every joint and bone back into place; the only memory of Arianda felling a tree with her unprotected fist was naught more than the blood that covered it still. The little demon sniffled as she curled even further into a ball and pressed herself into Mana harder; refusing to let this moment end just yet. However, the demon also held the demon Queen tighter too. She loved Mana as much as Mana loved her, and knew that they both loved Caly beyond what words could describe. However, the demon soon breathed a shaky, halting, breath; trying to relax her body some from the ball it had curled so hard into.

"Th-Thank you, Mana... Truly. This is no news either of us should have to bear, but it is better to know than to forever question. We both need each other right now, more than ever."

Arianda looked up at Mana, her face stained with the remnants of tears, a few fresh tears trailing down her cheeks as she leaned up to deposit another kiss on Mana's cheek; a gentle nonverbal thanks as she slowly relaxed her legs to be straight, no longer held to her chest with such desperation. It was a slow, slow process, but Arianda eventually ceased her crying, resulting to gentle shaking every so often. The demon shook her head gently, paying careful attention to her thorns so she didn't smack Mana with them on accident, and leaned into Mana in an effort to relax more.

At the moment, Arianda's head was honestly too confused with the sudden news to have true coherent thought. She could have a few thoughts here and there, about the current situation. Otherwise, however, Arianda's brain was simply muddled and confused more than anything. As Calypso was a Danava, she wasn't honestly gone; but Calypso as she was would never be again. This new Danava, made from the death of Caly, was not their daughter; assuming there even was another Danava born from Calypso's... departure from this world.

In an effort to turn her mind away from the issue at hand, at least temporarily, the demon rose her head a tiny bit and looked at Mana curiously. A thought occurred to her. Most of Mana's potential heirs for Queen were gone in some way. Of course, the next Queen of demons need not be an Asthavon, but it made the most sense that one of Mana's children would take up the throne when they were ready, but now...? Arianda let out a gentle sigh, gripping Mana's hand tightly with her no longer broken right hand, giving the woman a warm, tight embrace to remind her that she was here for her.

"Life truly is a cruel mistress, my dear. Brilliant stars should not be allowed to be snuffed before their time, and yet, here we are... What are we to do, Mana? I do not wish to lose any more than I already have; you especially. Yet, all things must have an end, no matter how much I hate the thought. But again, I ask... what are we to do, my dear Mana?"

Song: N/A - Word Count: N/A




Mulling over the pains of loss was quite an ugly thing to do. All the sobs, wails, and whimpers of heartache were part of the process as far as The Demoness was concerned. That did not mean she failed to comfort Arianda, however. When grieving, one perhaps requires a safe place to let the initial feelings of shock, disbelief, and anguish bleed out. So even if Mana failed to say anything, she continued to give her physical presence all the comfort that the other creature needed as she simply stroked her hair and remained a firm, powerful figure in the midst of something so demoralizing.

After some time passed, it did appear that Arianda at least silenced herself to an extent. With more movements taking place it was apparent she was trying to find the strength to speak outward toward Mana. Therefore, her gem stare fixed itself to her icy eyes as the Vael thanked the Asthavon for being there for her in this time of absolute heartbreak. Muttering notions of them needing each other in this moment did indeed ring true. It is hard for two parents of a child not to come together upon the birth and death of that which they created with their union.So, Mana closed her eyes and gave a gentle smile before talking once more.

"Life is a maddening cycle of pain and bliss, my dear. It grips my soul, but I won't be defeated by it. I accept this pain as our own for to reject it is to deny the existence of life and death itself. We demons are a creature that can live a lifespan which far exceeds most other beings if we reach such ungodly power, so is it any wonder I stand before as a figure you can grab on?"

Mana continued let Arianda do as she please, but she made sure to wipe her tears away as The Demoness figured her face need not be blemished with such torment any further. As it seemed she was so devoured in this understandable pain that she failed to see the way forward. The Vael seemed scared, uncertain, and terrified at the prospect of an uncertain future. Whereas for Mana? Ha, she relished it and understood the only way forward was acceptance.

"What do we do from here? We live until things improve or we die. As before great pain, there comes great pleasure. Before great pleasure, comes great pain. I fear not the future for we have all we need so long as we breathe, my beloved. We will continute to lose things we cherish, but we still stand to gain more maddening pleasures in the future. So we shall grieve for now, but I know I plan to keep moving forward even if it won't be the same as it was in our days past."

Now cupping Arianda's chin, Mana smiled.

"Or do you have any alternatives besides just skipping to the death part, dear?"

ARIANDA VAEL


Happy Death Day [Mana/Ari] 6EdIfMt

Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves

Arianda was honestly glad for Mana's company. Indeed, Mana loved Ari. But, that love also meant that Mana was very ready to be quite honest about everything she told the slightly smaller demon. She spoke of refusing to be defeated by life, accepted the pain caused by it, and told Ari that quite honestly. Not to mention, the demon Queen was very assuring to Ari, who had been balling her eyes out like a newborn babe; just a lot less noisy. Arianda was glad for that as well. Not only was it a welcome change to what Mana was like back when Arianda was still part of Shadowfall, but it comforted Arianda in a way that could not be described with words very well. In essence, It was like the warmest, most loving, hug to exist.

As Arianda listened to Mana speak, her gaze still pointed up at the woman, Arianda couldn't help but allow her eyes to squint a tiny bit as Mana wiped away her tears; likely getting a bit close to her eyes as well. After all, that is what would be needed to clear away the tears, and residue, that temporarily marred Ari's features. Soon, Arianda listened once again to Mana. She spoke of living until life improved, until they either died or the improvement made everything better. Not to mention, Mana calling Ari her "beloved" did garner a slightly rosy blush on the demon woman's face. However, Mana soon cupped Ari's chin, smiling at the blue-eyed demon and asked her a question; the question made Ari grin slightly despite her potent sadness.

"If I haven't died yet from all the shite I've been through, I ain't gonna fuckin' die now, Mana. I'll find a way to punch life in the dick some day~ So, don't you go dying on me either, beloved Mana~ You may be much older than I, but you are still too young to depart from this life, as far as I am concerned."

Arianda smiled at Mana, feeling a tiny bit of joy in her being, even if it was being eclipsed by the rather large bowling ball of sadness that hung to her. In that moment, Arianda felt an immense urge to kiss the Queen, to haul off and makeout with the mother of her child. But, the demon held herself back. Unless Mana too wished it, she would not engage so carelessly. Otherwise, the demon did lean a bit closer to Mana, humming pleasantly as she rest her chin in Mana's cupped hand.

"When things to improve, Mana, trying to think positive here, what will we do? I do not want to stand idly by and lose more, but I do not exactly know what I could do. You could say I've been lost for a while now. I can't say I exactly know what to do with myself... I suspect we both may have run into such a wall at recent. However, I could be wrong and I apologize if I was simply assuming. But I can't help but wonder... what awaits us in life, Mana? What can we do to make it better? I'm afraid my grief has left me with more questions than I would like. You need not answer if you'd rather not, I'm just rambling I think..."

Arianda let out a soft sigh, once more ignoring multiple urges that always sprang up when she was around Mana. She especially ignored a particular desire. Essentially, giving Mana another child would not fix the problem. It was a non-starter, and a completely immature thing to do. Right now, they needed to come to terms with the death of their daughter; together. Overall, however, Arianda was deeply happy that she was with Mana, sharing an embrace with the demon queen like she never thought possible. In all, it likely left Arianda's decision making processes a bit muddled, but she cared not at the moment. She just wished to enjoy what little her sorrow allowed her.

"However, if there are any alternatives to just waiting for life to improve, I suggest we find ways to make it improve~"
