PostSubject: Zodiac Chapter 1: Down The Rabbit Hole...   Thu Jun 11, 2015 9:44 pm

First topic message reminder :

The Ankh carried by Titane would continue to shine brightly under the guidance of the Taurus, directing his courier in the direction of the Earth Sanctuary from the trail of destruction left in the path of the Ushi-Oni. The glowing hoot prints in the ground would mark the trail and make it completely visible to the eyes of Titane. The foot prints were all a mess on the ground, but they were rather obvious. As he swung, the Taurus grumbled something to him. "Move Faster..."

El tried his best to ignore Tzita's inebriated advances. He was a man of honor, and this lady was in trouble. If he gave in to her suggestive actions, in her current state, then he would be no better than a rapist or pervert. El was neither. He was a knight and would save this damsel in distress with the utmost swiftness.

"I'll follow your call." He said to Taurus, ignoring the path that the shadow man created as he went on his way. El was never one to follow the path of the shadows, and was a denizen of the light. He turned to go the path that Tzita's Ankh led them towards, paying attention to its glow instead of the shifting footprints of the rabbits and the bulls.

Despite her squirming, El tried to hold Tzita as close to his chest as possible as he run at full speed to get her away from this forest that was messing with her. He didn't know, specifically, what was wrong with her, but figured it had something to do with her being a witch. "Don't worry, Lady L'sia. I promise to get you out of here and to safety. I won't fail you." He swore this on his honor.

When El decided to run through the forest, no longer having any of the ambiguity that casually drifted about him in what might be feigned serenity, he would find that his feet, though swift enough to streak through the trees, were brought to the speed of a normal jog. Powerful waves of distortion flowed from within the trees; powerful enough to resist him like the rushing waters of a stream. To him, it would be as if he were swimming upstream, yet his strength kept him moving forward, despite how slow. His feet would barely touch the ground, and the trees would continue to shift and shake subtly with every move he made. His image of the forest, due to his perceived speed, seemed to be choppy, but with it, too, would his movements be just as stop-motion.

"... Can You... Hear...?" The voice of the trees was starting to become more clear to him the deeper he went, and with it, more of the questions. "... Do You... See...?" What first sounded like incoherent whispers all mumbling over each other was now starting to come into focus, like all of the sounds of numerous whispers were actually just a single voice broken up into numerous different speeds and tones, something like a Grand Staff. It was a sort of Transcendent Sound; one that was a very difficult frequency to tune into for most, which made it sound garbled initially. "... Focus..." it said, echoes of its faint whispers still fluttering about ambiguously, even in the clarity of the voice like a river.

"Hruh. I didn't pick ya so's I could be tellin' ya what to do all day." Though his tone seemed gruff and serious, it could be felt that there was a bit of lighthearted jesting in it. When El took off, the light of the Taurus shone brighter the closer he got to his destination, which was set to the Earth Sanctuary where the second Ankh was located. The path was not straight (as, it seemed, most never were these days), but it was, if nothing else, absolutely clear in spite of all of the distortions and such other mess that flowed naturally through this realm like the gentle breeze itself.

It didn't take Taurus long to notice how slowly they were moving now, especially compared to what he knew El was capable of. The distortions were getting heavier, but at the same time, seemingly more smooth and clear, as well. "... Looks like sum'n's tryna slow us down, kid..." The sound of the voices were becoming more audible, but even Taurus was unsure of exactly what it was nor where it was coming from. It felt as though if it were from the forest itself, but he felt as though there were something more to it... "... Hrm."

Tzita, who was pretty much completely susceptible to these distortions, would be able to hear the voice of whatever was speaking, which slightly drew her attention from her inebriation. "Huh...? ... What...?" She was stuck in between being sexually active and attempting to be comprehensive of everything around her. She wondered seriously why she wasn't getting any action yet... Usually, by now, that would have been already taken care of. "... Ellliioooott~..." she clawed at him with her nails, digging them deep into his side, "... Didn't you hear meeee~~...?" Though she was now securely fastened to him as if his arms were seatbelts, she still had all intent to try to pry her pleasures out of him.

El sighed quietly to himself as he moves through the forest. In her current state, Tzita reminded him of an overgrown child trying to get the attention of a busy parent. While he didn't mind it, much, her seductive advances were distracting. He did his best to ignore them as he hit a slog.

"I'm sorry, Lady L'sia, I'm a little busy right now. It'll feel much better if you hold on, can you do that for me?" He says to her, calmly with a nod of his head to get her to do the same, before he returned to a more serious demeanor. It was time to assess the situation again.

"I can hear a voice, Taurus," El said. Whispers on the wind had transitioned to whispers deep in his ear. Focus was what they asked for. "It seems like it's trying to tell me something, to show me something I haven't seen." What it could be, El hadn't the foggiest idea. He didn't want to stop moving, they were a behind schedule as it was, but the forest itself was doing everything in its power to prevent his, normally speedy, advance. If taking a moment to hone in on the voices, focus on them, was what was needed to understand then he would do so.

El's thoughts could be seen in his body language and feelings. The trees, after he stopped fighting the current, swiftly began to change colors lucidly, beginning to synchronize with the state of his movement. The trees around him started to shift into a bold Yellow, symbolizing the element of electricity. "... So. You can hear me now, I presume...?" the voice was a little more clear after it was matched up to the speed of his own sound's movements, as well as his mind's frequency of light and sound reception. "... It took a moment to synchronize, but if you're listening... It isn't wise to just run straight into the forest." To whom or what El was speaking to was a mystery, but it seemed to have some sort of knowledge of his environment. The disembodied voice continued, "... This place is dangerous if you are not in the correct state of mind and feeling. The 'Forest of Feelings' can swallow you up whole in an instant..." It seemed that the ambiguous voice knew it all too well. El was already heading in a direction he didn't want to be simply by feeling incorrectly at the present time. "... Only one of the many reasons why I'd advise you to listen to me..." The voice carried what seemed to be both great age and wisdom from the way it spoke, yet its actual presence could not be determined.

When the colors shifted on the trees, so did the light of the Ankh in whatever direction they needed to go, if it had changed along with the trees. The Taurus' power wouldn't be so easily negated by the effects of the forest, especially when locating an item that was directly linked to the Zodiac Spirit, himself. "... What Is The Meaning Of This...?" Taurus grumbled, growing frustrated at the obstacle that seemingly could not be overcome by running straight through it, as it was accustomed to doing most, if not all of its work. Most of those born under this Zodiac Spirit's influence were similar, however because he was Awakened, whatever he learned would immediately go to all born under the sign, as well, and vice versa. This also included El, who was blessed with his power. The changes that occurred with Taurus would also happen within his spirit, and help him grow physically with the same learning and understanding.

"... Somethin'' just ain't right here..." he snorted, "... I didn't think I'd have to use the Awakened Power this early..." The Ankh that was already blessed with Pisces' power would soon start to glow, eventually enveloping El and Tzita with the Blessing of the Taurus. "... Now... Y'all have the 'Iron Will' of the Taurus." With that, they would have a sort of celestial armor around them that doubled their vitality by expanding their Spirit's capacity to harness energy, outlining them with the shape of the Taurus' body, which was their 'Extra Tank,' so to speak. "... If somethin' fishy come outter there... I'll pull out sommer yer own energy and double it up fer... uh... 'Super Armor' or sum'n." The Taurus went in and out of his own ancient tongue, which was more commanding and harbored much less personality, to his 'modern' tongue, that was meant to help communicate casually with people in more modern times than his ancient heritage. Usually, it involved someone releasing their spirit to their Nature, which is influenced by the Signs, be it in Life or Death, and forming updated parts of them based on what they learned in their lifetime. Fortunately, the one that was selected for taking the place of the Taurus' new voice was a stubborn, but kindly old grandpa. "Should snap that there girl back into her wits, too..."

]Tzita was surprised to have someone turn down a sexual advance... again. She was Tzita, after all... It was actually completely unheard of in all her life, and she wasn't particularly fond of being told 'no.' She never was, but it was especially so in terms of sex, which she ALWAYS got upon her command. She was just about ready to take it from him, at this point, until the light of the Ankh swallowed her up and kept the forest's sedative nature from luring her into a state of pleasurable relaxation. When she snapped into her wits again, she realized what she had been doing and how she appeared, then quickly found the need to find a cover for herself. "... Hmph. Fine. But don't ask me later..." That was about all she could do right now. It was better than her looking like she was the one being turned down. No one turns down Tzita L'sia!

With the Taurus' protection upon her, she was able to see the vivid forest in a rational state of mind and not in a heightened or altered sense based on how it all made her feel. She could see the green trees shift to yellow, and it made her a little uneasy. "... Uh, El. Where are we?"

El was glad that the Taurus was on their side, and able to prepare something that could protect them from the effects of this strange forest, at least somewhat. For now, he placed Tzita back down on the ground, after her state of mind had been restored to normal, and stayed focused on the voice that was speaking to him. Since it seemed like he was the only one that could hear it, then he decided to relay its words.

"There's a voice," He says to Tzita and Taurus, "it advises us to listen to it because this 'Forest of Feelings', as it called it, can 'swallow us up whole', as it said, if we 'aren't in the correct state of mind and feeling', as it warns. Says this place is dangerous." He shrugs his shoulders afterwards, wondering what Tzita and Taurus had to say about this. As it stood, none of them seemed to actually understand what was going on, as since El was an alien to this world, in general, he really didn't understand what was going on. Perhaps they could shed some light on the situation.

The erection of the spiritual barrier over the two bodies in the forest by the Taurus was very clear, for the natural waves shifted the moment a new power flared up in them, which caused all of the trees to shift and bend. They contorted only slightly around the outpouring spiritual energy, giving them the appearance of what one would see when in a hall of distorted mirrors, yet not to such an extremity. Unfortunately, it would also prevent them from getting as clear a reception as they could, due to the pollution of energy in the air.

"The trees respond to..." the voice faded out over the Iron Will of the Taurus fighting back, for some reason, against the words of the trees. "... So it's difficult to move." With Taurus' suspicion, the trees would grow a deeper, more somber shade; something like a violet, tinged with the transitioning yellows. Yet again, the trees began to distort, though in a completely different way than they did the first time. This time, they arced around in a menacing way, as if bringing the Taurus' feelings of caution around like thorn bushes in the shadows of the yellow leaves. Where each leaf seemed harmless (save for minor distortions), each shadow seemed menacing and sharp, as if behind the peaceful exterior of the yellow there was something threatening.[/b][/i] "... No, don't...!!!" the voice was starting to fade, yet the last words of caution were hopefully heard clearly.

"Yeeeeh, I heard it..." the Taurus grunted, still clearly skeptical of where and what it was speaking to them, "... But it don't seem right ta me..." Curiously enough, the more he felt this way, the more his suspicions seemed to form around him in the distortion of the forest based on his feelings of caution. "... Hrmph. Lookit them there trees. Look a mite menacin', don't you reckon?" The Iron Will that was surrounding them would keep them protected from many of the waves, which should keep them all moving at their steady, normalized speed. "Just stay on course... Don't be gettin' led astray or nothin'..."

Tzita, at first, was able to hear the voice pretty clearly. She wasn't paying much attention to it, having just recently been snapped back into reality by the Taurus' protection, which seemed to start blocking the voice out, but she was aware that, at the very least, they weren't alone. "... 'Forest of Feelings'? What's that mean? Like, it feels stuff?" She saw the trees start to shift again, changing color and bringing with the change a really strange, nearly threatened or threatening feeling, to some sort of degree. It made her uneasy. "... What's it doing now? Can you hear it?" If El, for some reason, could hear the voice more clearly, then she figured that by all means, she should let him listen and keep watch for if anything was going on. She wasn't really aware about her own actions from the time she was intoxicated by the trees to her sobering up at the protective veil; it all felt like some sort of weird, surreal dream, but she knew that, at the very least, it happened. It was slightly embarrassing and from now on, she wanted to make sure she wasn't so shamefully exposed again. It seemed like El didn't like it, either, and for once... It kind of got to her. Tzita fell silent.

El tried his best to stay focused on the voice of the forest, but the more suspicious Taurus seemed to get of the forest then the more the connection seemed to want to drop. He could only understand bits and pieces of what the voice was trying to tell him, but it was enough for him to puzzle out the solution.

"I get it." He says to his companions, before looking at Tzita, instead of focusing on the encroaching trees that were growing defensive and menacing in response to their, well... prejudice. "We all need to calm down. The forest is responding to our emotions of fear and our sense of danger. It isn't inherently menacing, it's just responding to our prejudice. Earlier, it was leading us astray because me and Lady L'sia had wanted to relax and it was responding to that too."

He placed a his index and middle fingers to his left temple. "Can you still hear me voice? I'm calming down, this forest isn't an enemy. We just need to focus on where we want to go."

Very quickly, the environment shifted again, though this time relatively around El and not Tzita. The color of the trees were deepening around Tzita, yet becoming more stable around El. They would start to see each other fading away, even if they were still standing right next to each other. "Yes, I hear all... ... ... Forest," it responded to El, yet still sounded broken due to the flow of energy around them coming from the Taurus. "But... Taurus is... ... Distortions." Hopefully, it was to be understood. Each of the trees were receptive to the energies of those who came in contact with them, be they physical or incorporeal, and would shift to match. They were delicate and highly receptive, adaptive and reactive, meaning that they would react to others more than they would do anything on their own. "You must... Together or... Lost in the forest!" The last bit seemed urgent, but of course, the message still remained relatively garbled in certain parts, preventing complete and coherent understanding. "Calm... At ease! If no..." The forest's shifting became more drastic around Tzita, as if drawing her into something deeper than the green that was now beginning to form again near El. Their feelings were completely different, and it would reflect in the trees... Their positions were different in their hearts and in their minds, and so too would they be in the forest, even if they were right beside each other.

Taurus remained skeptical of the whole ordeal, not wanting to give into the words of some ambiguous voice that may or may not actually wish them harm. For all they knew, it could have been trying to lower their guard simply so that it could get into their heads and take them off into some sort of place far from where they were trying to go and do lord knows what with them. Taurus, for one, was not trying to get taken off course. "... Hrmph. I still don't like it. Just ain't right." However, he was going to let them see if it were actually telling the truth. Everything deserved the benefit of the doubt, at least a bit, and if things got hectic, then the Iron Will could just flare up again and protect them. With that thought, the surrounding astral body would start to die down, as with the light of the Ankh. "... I ain't stickin' around out here with y'all, then. Y'all g'won and do whatever yer fixin' ta do, but I ain't havin' no part." That said, Taurus would completely draw himself back into the Ankh, allowing only the light that pointed them to where the Earth Sanctuary was to lead the way.

"Calm? Psh. I'm calm..." she muttered, crossing her arms. "Pretty sure it was just that old bull that was the problem. We should be able to get by now, right?" She looked at El and saw that he was starting to fade away, for some reason. Not only that, but the trees around him were nice and green, like when they started, but the ones around her were becoming kind of dark. "... Why isn't it working? Can that voice hear me, too? Ask it why it's not working for me!" If they were all getting calm and whatever, then the trees should have been getting better by now. "I guess the same way we got here is how we have to travel, or something. Ask it how we do that. Like, how we're supposed to move through the forest, since we can't just walk, or something." If this place was going to start exposing her feelings without her consent, then she'd rather not be in the forest at all. She may feel something that would come up and be reflected in the trees and then be all.. out there and shit. "We need to get out of here. It's like, blowing my mood..."

El hated to ask the Taurus not to be as protective as he was being, it was just in his nature, but it seemed like it was the only way they would be able to figure out and get out of this forest safely. If they just tried to rush to their destination without figuring this forest out, then how were they going to be able to leave? The forest was keen on not allow them to leave as it was. They almost had everything figured out, so they could see Taurus when they final got to the Earth Sanctuary.


As Tzita's image began to fade beside him, he remained as calm as he could, with nothing to hide. Even though her image was fading, he could still feel her beside him, and grabbed her hand with a reassuring squeeze. "Tzita," He said, not calling her Lady L'sia this time. "Are you hiding something?" He wondered if the forest was responding to something else when it came to Tzita besides her current mood. She was calm, sure, but it seemed like she wanted to leave in much the same hurry as the Taurus. He wasn't sure why the forest was responding differently to her.

"Voice, does the forest respond differently to magical beings. I don't want to be separated from my companion. Is there something wrong?"

"The forest only responds to the waves around it," the voice said now with more clarity, since the Taurus' vibrations from its spectral aura coating them dying down enough for the voice to speak to them on a normal, calmed level. "And since I don't have to yell anymore, I can keep the path completely stable for you. As long as you all remain in a state of contentment or at least no sort of severe shift in emotion too suddenly, you shouldn't get lost." Before, their emotions would have sent them spiraling off in some sort of infinitely looping direction based on simply their emotional state alone and the direction of their compass would not function properly.

"I, myself, can also adjust my mood to keep the forest as one single solid portion or broken environments in order to help travelers walk more easily or make the paths more hazardous. If I am not helping or hindering people actively, then it all depends on their wavelengths and energies alone. There is no difference between the beings; only the measure of energy of any kind is being released at one time." Whatever it was that was speaking to them, its voice was now as clear as a bell. The forest would completely shift to that of a normalized forested environment; trees green and completely solid, without bend nor sway. "There, now. Is that better for you all? Your device should lead you straight there with no problems, now."

When the trees shifted back to their natural green color, the sound of rustling trees and bushes settled with the presences that were presently in the suddenly set area.

The sound of rustling was only then accompanied by the soft thud of plush feet touching the soft, stable ground just one, nearly silently, before kicking off just as quietly in the background, presuming that she would probably very soon be tracked and was already searching for a way to escape.

The moment the Taurus went back into the Ankh and allowed things to flow naturally without imposing his will, the trees shifted back to normal and the Ankh's light would point them straight in the direction of the Earth Sanctuary with clarity and ease.

However, another light appeared on their 'compass,' which would point toward their rear, where the footsteps of a Sacred Beast (*like a Suicune, or something) had been felt. "A Sacred Beast is nearby..." one of the Pisces said, having not felt the need to speak up about anything until just now. The other signs were not supposed to impose too much on those of others unless through mutual or direct interaction. This kept all of those born under a single star sign from being influenced too heavily by any outside astral forces of any given kind save for their own. That said, since the two of them were not under the star sign 'Pisces,' they could not receive as much direct help save for their blessings, which shared their powers with them. After alerting them that a Sacred Beast was active, the Pisces fell silent again, but the light still remained pointing toward the target.

When El grabbed Tzita's hand, she blushed a little bit, but didn't look him in the eye. She seemed to be attempting to avert her gaze, "... El..." slowly, she would grip his hand, before finally looking toward him with a slightly tender, but still relatively displeased look. "I..." she was about to express how she felt about what happened, but instead was cut off by the muttering of the Pisces. She knew it had to be important if one of them had spoken up in the first time basically their entire trip. "What? A Sacred Beast?" She saw the shadow of something rushing off behind El, the Ankh glowing and pointing in the direction that it had went. "Was that it? Sh-shit, let's follow it!" She felt like, the more Zodiac Spirits they claimed the more quickly the better. She wasn't sure how they were appearing, what made them appear or when they would again, so her thoughts were to just pursue them as soon as they appeared, if possible. She hopped onto El's back, grabbing onto his horns "... Howsabout I just tell you what I was feeling after we finish what we're doing, huh~?"

Tzita actually seriously felt like this may have been something more pressing to deal with later, despite how pretty lackadaisical she seemed about it. That's just how she was naturally, when she was serious and when she was playing. "Giddyap, Elliott!" Tzita would bounce about frantically upon his back, as if trying to get him to make his decision quickly. She wanted that rabbit. No telling what kind of power that one had...

So El had been correct in how he thought the forest worked. Thankfully the voice was able to stabilize everything before him and Tzita got separated, once Taurus left. It meant Taurus had been the one creating the distortions that prevented them from hearing the voice as crisp and clearly as they could right now. El was glad that his hearing was so keen, regardless, or that could have been a harder ordeal to overcome.

While he was prepared to hear with Tzita had to say, he was more keenly interested in finding the Sacred Beast that the Pisces spoke up and told them about. So interested, in fact, that he was was already looking around for the clue towards where it could be. As such, he missed Tzita's tender looks and her initially soft words. "Sure, I think find this beast and getting to the Sanctuary is more important. We've left Taurus waiting long enough." El nodded in assurance on this thought before rushing off towards where the Ankh was leading them.

A shadow remained behind them at all times.

The swift feet kept the head of the fleeing creature in the shadows and just barely able to be seen. Those that weren't swift wouldn't be able to even keep up with them, and they would already be lost. The forest seemed to be stable now, so transitioning between the different parts probably wouldn't happen anymore, which ensured that she could handle this with less caution, but more ease. "You're being followed..." she said to them, darting off to the right suddenly and into the shade of the trees as soon as they'd hear.

"Quick! It went that way!" Even if El weren't paying attention to what was going on, Tzita's eyes, with or without their power, were already trained for these types of situation. It took her a lot more effort and concentration to keep up this time, but at the very least, she wouldn't lose sight of the Sacred Beast so easily. "Right!" she cried, slapping his right shoulder profusely, just in case he didn't know which direction.
