(Should mun accept it) The distant sound of flute music plays as golden rays of sun peek through overcast clouds. It is a heartening tone, but it is dissimilar to the songs Gilbert would play. As Erika sets up his cross on the remnants of the old temple, a breeze carries this melody to her along with the familiar scent of yellow lilies, and then the mystic stops. However the youth now emits a faint halo. Erika is blessed with a form of charm speak. However, it will only work on a person once.
Erika paused, tilting her head and closing her eyes as she listened to the beautiful melody. She inhaled the scent of her favorite flower and blinked a few times, lost in thought. When the last notes of the song faded, Erika opened her eyes and noticed something strange. The world was a little brighter, and she felt powerful in an odd way. The small girl looked up at the sky and silently thanked whichever god had blessed her before continuing down the road to the village.
Jaroslav: “mhm !! actually its p funny, a lot of them are gods !!! just a plus side of being enlightened :0 bc i go around to different places a lot, i see a bunch of ppl around. i tripped over in chun’s– lord chun’s?? garden, i see raccolto whenever summer rolls around, and i tend to stay in vash’s farm or berwald’s temple when im in their areas !! i met shiv when i challenged him to a climbing contest!! meeting yilin was also a funny story,, he found me eating rice out of his fields 😳”
a sigh that remembers the past “You know, life as a mortal is not an easy one, enlightened or not there are trials unnumbered, butt when you have someone to stick it out with you, something inside just feels it is okay, the life you live is your own and sharing the rewards of the day with one another feels as if you cheat the system.”
“I have shared a table with many, but the gods gave me a truly special companion, through every journey I had a creature of intense fluffyness who worked and played with me. Our ways could not be parted, even in the end”
“I wish I could change the past, that meu precious amarela was saved, so that I could have sought the bird in this life and made him my symbol officially, lead my new coup now that offerings come as birds sometimes….”
[carefully leaves a flower and a box of honey glazed sweets on Shiv's doorstep and flees]
“Be careful not to fall.”
//I tried to study some elements of classic Japanese woodprints and paintings for this piece since I wanted to see if I could capture Shiv in foreign art styles! I was inspired by an important indian artist called Abanindranath Tagore, who tried to add elements of Japanese and Chinese calligraphy to his paintings.
It was an interesting study, I certainly recommend it to other artists as an analytic and observational exercise!
“Your question is difficult to answer when I do not observe day and night myself. I do not maintain a singular routine as I have countless forms that perform various duties continuously.”
They stopped walking and chuckled, “Of course, I have forms that are resting and maintaining an internal balance as well. Constantly working, resting, listening and talking at once, becomes easy at my level of power.”
//They mostly fear rejection from those close to them, but even if that’s Shiv’s greatest fear, it’s one they have braced themselves against for a very long time. Should it come true, they would simply keep committing themself to their responsibilities as the Heavenly Ruler.
(Armel; new alter) "I have to wonder, Shiv, what your thoughts would be on the idea of life with multiple consciousnesses inhabiting the same body. That is what we are living right now, and I am entirely new to this."
“Life comes in so many different and wonderful forms, so I cannot say that your situation surprises me. It sounds to be the true opposite of my experiences inhabiting multiple bodies with a shared consciousness. However, it is a better microcosm for the workings of our universe. Each one of our souls is in constant flux and is constantly transforming at its own pace. When everything halts, every state is one state, and we reveal ourselves to be One.”
Is there an idol of yours that you're particularly fond of?
“I adore and manifest within every idol made by my devotees, no matter the shape nor skill.
Though it is true that I remain fond of older idols, which have aged alongside me. What was once gleaming bronze is now coarse green and gold plating has turned dark and rustic. Despite that, devoted hands polish them and lay humble flowers in the crevices of the figure. There is a certain sanctity in the love that goes into conservation.”
Good day Exalted Sir, I must ask.. are you truly satisfied with being second to your brother? It seems to me that a god of your kind is far more appropriate to be ruler than- heh- a measely bug spray deity
There is static in the air, white noise filling every crevice as the temperature drops. And the thunder is relentless in its deafening cracks.
In the midst of it all, he stands there, the distinct sound of bells resounding with the slightest movement of his feet. His eyes burn into the creature in front of him and it is with a snarl of utter and ferocious disgust that he speaks.
I sincerely pity the unfortunate subordinates forced to read your ridiculous writing style. I asked of you what I believe to be a simple task. If you do not understand the importance of recording the history of music, the very subject you were designated to watch over, your followers are most definitely doomed. It’s telling that despite your position as the God of Performances, I am the one tasked with filing every play to have been crafted by human hands. Complete your paperwork and have an excellent evening.
Roderich nodded, “They seem like a good person, but competition is competition. They’re wise and despite technically being against them, I respect them a great deal.”
The farmer crossed his arms and tilted his head, thinking. “Thye’re useful and relatively friendly. Also pretty reliable. I once had an infestation at my farm and the problem was gone overnight. I can see why they’re the mighty ruler of heaven.”
“I am the last person who should abuse my authority on those who have ‘wronged’ me. If I have ever punished a follower, it would not have been due to a personal grudge. Though I am capable of withdrawing blessings from those who abuse my favour.”
“They go somewhere wonderful, where truth victors over all and where all your questions can be answered. An existence which apparently has a thousandfold the magic and wonder of the 5 Realms (though of course I could not imagine such a concept if all I did for eternity was try).”
//please appreciate the door, please appreciate the door pls appreciate the do-
So here we have a god, what kind of god? Well, according to him and the qualifications that acceded him as such a wine god. You may have heard of him you may have not. One thing is sure; however, He is very very new to being a god. What does this mean? It means in the ranks of divines he is sprout. He has no grand temples, no hoards of believers across the lands, and no mysterious names that have been earned from godly achievements. Being a major dork, he forgets to be divine, so when he has been performing his works these past years at best people thought he was a closeted enlightened one.
But this is the year he Tries™ They say with believers ones power can grow yes? This god of wine would desperately love that…actually he wants a lot of things, but believers are the start!
So this is what we are going to do
Anon or not if you declare yourself a believer consider your word added to the bottle of prayers. (will be upgraded with followers) Offerings are appreciated but not required….though admittedly more punch to answering prayers can be used when offerings are given. (asking a hungry creature to do tricks for nothing creates nothing…wait it makes spite huh)
Please be nice. He is a god and is not bound to your imagination.
Ask away! He is a humble god but is willing to answer prayers, questions, interviews, whatever you got. Be respectful to the AU rules is all we ask. And lastly, have fun. Wine god loved smiles in his life and pursues them even now.
