The Elder Tree looked upon the woman with what could be considered interest in its carved eyes. The fire that sat deep within the tree remained steady as it took in a breath and allowed its branches to move slightly as if stretching.

"Saranna? Strange name for one such as yourself. I suppose I am no different." The tree spoke only to then look past the two and at the babbling brook before it. "Saranna the Practitioner? Not a wizard like many before you and yet so much like a witch? Maybe a sorcerer but something more......Forgive an old tree for rambling as it has been so long sense I have had a descent conversation or have even been sought after." The elder tree simply glanced back at the many armed woman and began to chuckle.

"I am Loa Racine, a name granted to me by a child many, many, years ago before this world was shaped. I am one of the elder trees who many have thought of as divine. What can I do for you Saranna the Practitioner? Do you seek knowledge on this land that my roots have stretched over for ages or have you come for something more?" The Elder Tree began to chuckle even more only to cough slightly allowing a few rogue sparks to harmlessly escape its wooden maw and land upon the earth beneath it just to die out instantaneously. "Or have you come to seek the truth on the beginning or even the flame that the witch of these woodland has tried to claim so many times in the past?"

a soft giggling sound came from within a cluster of trees, barely heard through the forest. A short pale creature ran barefoot from one tree to another. This creature resembled what a book might classify as a wood nymph; which indeed she was. That observation could be quite obvious as she had the curly brown hair, and brown eyes that a wood nymph would often have.

She continued to run and skip amongst the trees as though she had not a care in the world, but, being a nymph, she really didn't. For all she knew, really, was the forest; And she had seen no problems today.

Her bare feet fell upon leaves as she went, smiling with bright eyes. Nymphs were beautiful creatures, and this one may not be an exception.

She tossed herself up into a tree and it was almost as though she had entirely disappeared, except for the sounds of her feet moving against the branches each time she moved up higher. The tree was where she settled herself, and kept for awhile.

"A witch, an oracle, a guardian, even. I am many things, not any one thing," replied Saranna, hiding the bulk of her ten pale arms beneath the cloak once more. "I come for many things, however, nothing specific. I was told you were here, and that you were a strange thing, indeed. I ask, for now, only a talk. Tell me of the flame, and know I do not come here to claim it. I do not wish to disturb the peace of this glen." At least, not at this time. "Loa Racine. I will remember that. How is it that you came to be?"

As Saranna spoke, she noted, from the corner of her eye, the darting figure among the trees. The yellow, bipedal toad at her side followed the motion with a turn of his whole, round body, leaves crunching beneath his webbed toes. "My lady, there..."

"I see her, Toad. I hear her," spoke the witch curtly. She kept her eyes on Loa Racine. "Might that be an affiliate of yours?"

"Who's there?" Toad called out.

The old tree smiled and looked at the woman. She was indeed many things but she failed to see that she was indeed just a single thing. Fragile by nature that form was not as sturdy as an oak and she did not seem to claim the old blood like many did before her nor did she seem to be the fool that some have proven on countless times with the old wood.

"Ah, a witch who happens to be an oracle and the guardian of some thing unknown to me, a rather interesting set of titles one such as yourself carries but not unheard of." The old tree bellowed just to then take note of the small nature spirit rushing about on the leaves on high. "A conversation is nothing new to me but something I have missed. The fire which you see deep inside of my wood is the First Flame the Lords Flame, and it is what gives me life." The old tree opened his mouth wide so that the witch could get a better look at the roaring fires that sat deep within. "I was around long before men inhabited the forms they claim now and when everlasting trees and eternal dragons claimed dominance to the world you see before you. Though you do not try to claim my fire many have been granted a small portion of my life and even fewer have stolen it from me, such as one who lives in these woods right now." The old tree glanced in the opposite direction from which the many armed woman came just to then shudder slightly. "I have many guardians who protect me now but none such as the nymph who you are noticing. She is a regular but has little mind of her own to realize she has been playing upon my branches."

Lao Racine gave his limbs a good shake sending several leaves to the ground in hopes of shaking the nymph out of his branches and onto the forest floor bellow. "Out I say child of nature! Have some respect will you."

She squeaked as she was shaken from the branches. She landed quite ungracefull on her rear end and frowned "Sorry...i was simply having fun...I-I didn't mean to upset anyone, honest!" She stood quickly and looked around before running to a different tree and hoisting herself up onto the branches.
"I really do like being up in trees...makes me feel powerful. but i get trees mixed up...sometimes i just sit on the wrong branches" She grinned and shifted slightly in her new tree. She then looped her legs over the branch and swung down to be closer to the others.
"I don't recall seeing you around, Miss...Though i don't really pay attention to all the people walking in and out of the forest, that would be WAY too much to remember. but i'm sure good Ol'Loa here does. He's been around for some time, but his memory's probably just as old as he is." She giggled and swung abit on the branch "I'm abit of what some might call, an air head..."

Upon the arrival of Odin things seemed to grow a bit more intense. Nimsirril seemed to take a step back only to turn to an odd tree which suddenly grew a face and was in the company of an intense fiery being and one of shadow and light.

"Gaia!" Loa Racine boastfully and joyfully called out to the earth mother. The Shadow Lord presented with open arms a deep blue crystal while the fiery being added his own spark of life to the gem causing it to flair up seeming to come to life at the warmth of his flames.

"A pleasure to finally meet you." Shabot-Urn spoke while Akanatur just simply nodded and took the gem only to place it before the Mother of the Earth. Towards the other beings little was said but the talking tree and Nimsirril seemed to enjoy the show for what it was worth.

Glancing as all arrives she nodded at all, "as I said dear Loki, this is not meant to be something of pure goodness. I myself am not without tarnished actions, because even at times a Mother must be firm. That being said, yes Odin I do intend to bring this back completely, of course I would not endevour to do so under the old name, for despite what it resembled, the old name carries the baggage. The bickering, the infighting and such. No we must be united even if we don't see eye to eye on everything. And sadly because I am by far most neutral in this assemblance of Grand Cosmic powers I must be the one to make the call." pausing she surveyed them all, trying to diagnose their views or at least understand.

Finally she turned to Imnariel, "It failed because there was too much focus on what we are and less on what we can do. There were too many opposing voices and less unity. If we are to do this, we must all understand from this point on if we hold powers above this planet or any other we can only rely on worshippers, avatars or basically mortals. We cannot directly interfere unless dangeorus powers can be reined. Then we would call them here to stand before us and be judged for their crimes against the Cosmos. We need to show these planets we are listening and doing all we can. My belief is if we act as a United Front we could topple evils we have not been able to harm since their inception." gently she approached the spirit, "You are wise young one and wisdom is something many lack, but you have to understand as this planet suffers so do I. If I was to remove the glamor I wear, you would witness centuries of destruction on my body. I can't bear merely watching, we must act, but yes previously this failed. I can give no guarantee it won't this time... but surely I am not the only one who grows tired of watching all they work for be molested by dark intent?"

It was this time Hel spoke, still glaring, she stared away from her Father, "Noble gestures yes Mother of Creation, but can you be sure you can trust people like my Father? He has shown in the past that when trusted he will abuse it. The Great Allfather and my true kindred no doubt knows this... what is to prevent his schemes fracturing this?"

Listening Gaia nodded her mature but kindly feature radiating warmth despite the mood, "I know you despise him dear Hel, but by letting him be part of this, I am showing Loki something he rarely gets, respect and I believe he would not jeapordize that. After all few try make me angry and respect of I is hard to regain."

Loki chose then to step forward. "Far be it from myself to say I am without fault, indeed my faults are my pride, as it is my belief that perfection is boring, and that without chaos there is nothing to live for..." He paused then and looked to the east, as though seeing farther than his bounds would suggest. "That said... Chaos is ever it's own worst enemy, as a fire will burn unchecked until there is nothing left to burn, and then it dies... No, in this I am with all of you, even my step-father" He would shoot a glare at Odin. "For if the actions being taken in this grand game are allowed to continue unabated, then eventually the game will end.. And it would be at all our loss." He looked then at his daughter and took steps to be within her reach. "If you cannot trust me, then trust in my nature, for you know better than most that the last thing I could ever want is for all my toys to be lost forever" He said with a grin.

The spirit, in response to Gaia stepped lithely away, her body growing in height and stature till she stood a tall, mature woman with deep emerald eyes, both vibrant and eternal. "It is good, earth mother, that you do not claim to know what may happen, for it is folly to think to know the future. Even those among our stature who walk the endless paths of time know that there is no certainty in its existence. Still, though my doubts remain, my decision is made, indeed it has been made since I heard your call. I have been among those who ruin and desecrate your body and have long despised that no action or punishment has been made to them. That you finally take a stand against the evils of this reality is reason enough for me to march to your call" And then she tilted her head, her shape changing back into that of a child, "Even if I think your still not doing what you ought."

Odin was silent through all of this, and even those who knew his mind best would have had difficulty seeing his thoughts. His chin was tucked against his chest, his hands gripped the staff with strain as he pondered his own decisions. At long last he spoke "Long ago me and my kindred did partake in mortal affairs, and our actions made little impact, if indeed they ever made any, upon the course of affairs. And while I do not deem that my house be stronger than those gathered here, even so we were no small strength. And if all our power could change but a little, how can even a grand host as such we have here do much more than give pause to those forces we seek to array against? Even as mighty as we each may be, we shall need far more than we have, and it is doubtful that we shall be able to keep reign on so many divine beings..."

Odin strode forth and paced a small circle through the grove, his face grim and silent, his steps whispers of dark secrets and thoughts. At long last he paused, facing south. "Before we speak any further, Gaia, there are questions I must ask before I put forth my counsel." He spoke, facing south yet still. "First, you spoke of the dark creature Erebuz and his ambition, and of the darkness it shall bring. But spoke also you did of Lucifer, a child of eden, but all you had to say of him was that his return would make things more difficult... Do you know anything of his plans?"

"Out of all the evils in the world one truly has to imagine if you are even neutral anymore." The great tree finally spoke up and looked upon all with his wizened eyes. His branches and leaves would sway with the wind and for every leaflet that seemed to be lost to the air of the grove another would quickly take its place and change the appearance of the old wood into a different kind of tree.

"Gaia, it is the very nature of evil, you sought us out and called our names but change is inevitable." The old fire within the trees eyes and mouth seemed to turn a pale green as it began to look around and feel the world it had seeded itself in. "I recall when the world was gray and the only thing that remained was eternal dragons and everlasting trees. I was only a sapling but I was also like yourself."

Shabot-Urn and the fire elemental both nodded but Nimsirril crossed his arms and leaned himself up against the apple tree watching and listening. if this Lucifer and the other dark thing truly did pose a threat then it was obvious that this new pantheon would need followers that would worship and love them.

Hel grimaced with a look of utter hatred before saying very quietly but with much venom, "You speak such charismatic words Father, but in reality you would imprison your own children in your churlish machinations. I chose not to play that game and instead make more of myself. That being said..." she sighed visibly appearing utterly furious, "I respect Gaia and far be for me to speak over her trust. Does not mean I have to like it though..."

With that the Underworld Goddess was silent once more, while Gaia appeared saddened as she tried to think, "I find it both tragic and amusing only Loki out of most here can realize the true pressing concerns we have. I realize something must be done but once again we are being faceless sentinels only watching never acting." her expression grew more hurt as she continued, "Each act on this planet burns and marks my body. My planet, my beautiful child weeps. I weep for their follies, but like most children they need guidance and if we do nothing because we decide that time has decided we shall not act... what then... what even are we? Everyday diabolical and malign monsters, creatures wound my body and act without understanding the cycle... they harry it forward and we are to allow them? I am old, older than most here, but even I have patience that will end and it has reached this point." continuing she gazed at all, "I don't intend to control the fates I just want for things to be equal. My brother Erebuz would rather sod the laws and merely lead to her eventual act. Meanwhile the people who could do something are stuck debating and bickering... Is it not time we evolved the board. We can't directly act, but if people know of us they will listen and act for us."

Finally she turned to Odin, "The children of Eden Lilith and Eve once controlled Hell but an event took place and now he is free. I do not know what he plans, but I do know those who showed allegiance in the past will do so. Although those currently in Hell it is truly uncertain. I do think though Lucifer will try find a way to prevent himself being a tool of Erebuz. I don't know how he would but it is possible despite my Brother thinking otherwise."

Continuing she went on, "Dear AllFather I know you tried in the past, but if we gave up when we failed, we would get nowhere. I have done things lately to help others, even if consoling those without hope or even watching events that took place in Hell. I cannot directly act, but if we are united we could react again Erebuz since he is after all far more dangeorus than any mortal. We are the only bulwark against him. For this to succeed we must pledge to keep the infighting out of this and all personal or private disagreements should be ignored. We are not one anymore, we are many. We are the Astra Sigmatus the last line of defense for mortals when all else fails. We cannot directly intervene but we can do far more than twiddle our thumbs surely."

Odin turned to Gaia and nodded to her. "We are in agreement earth mother. For my part at least, I shall join you." He said to her, turning his eyes then to Loki.

Loki shrugged and said "Well, I mean I thought it was already obvious that I intended to join this game. I stated my reasons, and if you need to hear them again, well, too bad." He crossed his arms, feigning a look of disinterest.

Imnariel shifted into the form of a white dove that flew over and landed on Gaia's shoulder. She said nothing, but her intentions were clear nonetheless, the spirit of change would side with the mother of earth.

Odin then looked said aloud. "Further more, All those who would heed my command back in Asgard shall also be joined with this venture. For you are correct. The time of waiting is past. It is time for the gods to show their presence once more." He strode forth and stood before the stump and said, in a more dire tone. "However, Even with us all banded here together, your brother, Erebuz, remains a great threat, and there are none among us who hold a voice in Hell, at least not one strong enough to influence events. Knowing this, it is my counsel that we see to recruiting or otherwise gaining influence over Lucifer. For at this moment, if I were made to choose, it is he alone that I would pit against the odds to bar Erebuz's path."

Loki looked at Odin in shock at this. "Wh-what? Did I just hear that right? Did the Allfather, sacred doer of good acts just suggest we side with a demon lord?" Loki took a couple of steps back towards the edge of the grove. "This seems more something I would suggest, hearing it from you just sounds.... well, wrong!"

Imnariel tilted her head, looking between Loki and Odin, before looking up at Gaia with twinkling eyes.

The elvish sun god simply looked at the others who had accompanied him soon after only to frown as Shabot-Urn and Akanatur simply turned away from the others and made their way back to whatever business they thought was infinitely more important. Luckily Loa Racine remained though it seemed that the old tree began to snore or was in a rather deep trance.

"Might I make a suggestion?" Nimsirril piped up as he had nothing better to do. "I may not be as powerful or as all knowing as everyone here seems to be but it is obvious to me that instead of getting the influence of someone who seems to be detests why not send our scions out to act for us whilst we gain more influence?" Nimsirril crossed his arms and found himself leaning against the old faced tree. "I am unsure if Loa Racine has any scions but obviously it would seem to be the most appropriate way to deal with this situation."

Her soft warm eyes gazed over all and a sweeping sadness spread over her expression as others left, but most remained. There was a calmness to Gaia, a beautiful peace, but many warned of her temper and never dared broach it for fear of what may be unleashed. Nonetheless for now she remained the maternal side of her personality, the kind, compassionate face, "It is possible we could talk to the former fallen angel of Hell. It is difficult to speak to Lucifer, for his sin is pride and arrogance and like my brother he rarely thinks outside the box. Perhaps though his imprisonment has toned that side down. I would be open to the idea, if only because you believe Allfather that we should speak to him. I am apprenhensive about this, but we need allies and Lucifer would at least show we are not discriminating based on past sins. For this to work we must be a united front that much is evident."

Gently her head turned to towards Nimsirril, "Yes that is an idea we need our influence felt and to show mankind they are not alone. I approve of your thoughts and never diminish yourself child in our eyes. At least in mine no one is worthless or inferior so your thoughts and even ideas are welcome."

Finally her focus was on Loki, "You need to gather rest of your children Loki, because I am afraid Erebuz threaten Ragnarok for yourself. I am sure you don't want that. So gather them all and speak to the mortals let them know they no longer need feel abandoned. The Gods are listening and we are not seperate sentinels but united."

Loki bowed before the mother, and then faded as a mist blown away. Wherever he was off to, and whether he would do as was asked, was, as the mist, in the wind.

Imnariel fluttered over to Nimsirril, landing about his hair and changing into a white furred squirrel, who chittered and chattered in a sing song, thought if she was even paying attention was quite doubtful.

Odin closed his one eye and thought silently to himself, before speaking "A phrase mortals use 'When one is cornered, even a bargain with the devil has it's gleam' I believe it is. Lucifer no doubt finds himself in a troubled place, although I do not know if he is quite so desperate as to accept help from us. Still, we should offer him our assistance in some way, and in return we can make of him a request, giving us a powerful tool to restrain and pull back the growing darkness in the world. After all, no one stands better against evil, than the one who is that evil."

It took awhile but another figure soon joined the group. A woman wearing a bright pink dress and shouldering a bow with two studded gems inside it appeared and gave a small bow before the rest of the deities gathered together. "Apologies for being late, but to make up for this I heard everyone's conversation as I made my way here so there is no need to fill me in." She spoke as she gave a small smile. It was true, she heard the entire conversation from Loki greeting Hel to Odin suggesting that they should side with a demon lord.

It was understandable that she would not have kept up with the news, all she wanted was to live her eternal life in peace. But with the talk about hell and how something was going on threatened everyone's lives. She knew she had to stay here, there was to much of a risk for her to stay out of this. But what could she do? Sure she was an expert at the bow and hunting but other than that she had almost no followers except for that one lone hunter who's family passed their religion to their next of kin and she was not well known compared to the other Gods.

At the very least she was here now, and she was now participating is this meeting of sorts.

"I have to disagree with you Odin." Nimsirril piped up once more. The elven man finally began raise himself from his leaning post only to frown at the notion that the current deities seemed to agree upon. "If anything why would we bargain with any evil?" Nimsirril took a single step forward only to turn his gaze towards the newcomer in pink whilst offering a warm smile. "Again even though you claim my words are heard Gaia it seems that only Lao Racine and I remain, his situation is due until his form withers and dies, even if siding with a fallen angel is the only option present I would like to point out that it is not the wisest choice of action."

The elven godling simply conjured up his bow only to toss it upon the ground at his feet. "Gaia I can say that I know you and that your intentions are benevolent. However I think that this notion you and Odin seem to be under is something that I cannot stand with." Nimsirril like the sun began to set as he walked away from this conversation. His gaze however would linger upon the newcomer with sad eyes whilst the living tree sat unable to truly leave.

"I cannot speak fully for your wisdom. Action is often the best option and yet...." Lao Racine brought his ancient gaze over to the newcomer. "What do you think?" The tree spoke directly to Ondona. "Do you think siding with a fallen angel, something that was created by a being like us, is the best idea when dealing with another evil?" The tree narrowed his eyes upon her and then looked at the others. "I would appreciate what your thoughts on the matter are. My compatriots who left appear to have offered their feelings on the matter. The elvish fellow more so than the other two who had been present moments earlier." The Great Tree simply looked down at the bow Nimsirril had left.

The Earthmother once more gave sad sigh, before speaking in commanding but gentle tone, "This is or never was about good and evil, it is about the world realizing they are not alone with these forces. My brother Erebuz would loathe the idea of Lucifer being unable to get for his powers and I do think he would if shown understand the plight. So though many don't understand, I don't despair. I despair more at their black and white views. Many of us define the cosmos in our power and grandeur, yet we still think in terms of the ying and yang. We are meant to beyond these petty rivalries yet still we bicker like little children. So clueless of true face of enemies we have. I shall be blunt just this once. My brother will not be reasoned with, nor will he change his goals. Lucifer can be I very much think. Thinking that solely because he turned against Yahweh means we should not at least hear him out shows utter stubborn blindness."

Her gaze turned towards Nimsirril before he left, "I have tried greatly to make sense to you child. We are better united, but if you truly feel that is not wise, then go. I imagined this all along would be rocky start. Fortunately, although I did hope would understand the black and white morality is unwise."

Once more her gaze turned to the tree, "I think this, he deserves a chance to speak. I am apprehensive, but know out of all of us, the Allfather strived towards knowledge and wisdom. I am trusting his judgement."

With Loki gone, Hel finally spoke up, "I don't like it Mother, but you are right that black and white morality is wrong for us all. We should trascend that understanding. My very existence is a testament to the destruction of that idea. For many would prejudge me based on who birthed me, but Odin saw I was more than my Father."

Imnariel hopped from the elf gods head as he walked away, returning once more to the form of a girl. "I do not understand these things, what is good? What is Evil? There is only what is, to my eyes, and what is right now is decay and death, unnatural, untimely and unasked for. The wood grows dark and the skies dim, yet no stars are shining. An endless night is coming, and it should not be."

She skipped over to the tree and, in the guise of a white chipmunk climbed upon his trunk. To him the living spirit of change and nature said "The dark shadow, Erebuz they call it, will bring about this nothingness. But the fallen star, the one they call Lucifer, from what I have learned does not want an end. This we can trust."

Odin chuckled softly. "I believe what the spirit means is that even if we cannot side with him, we can accept that he wants the same thing as us, to an extent. Lucifer was felled for his pride, and his pride is in his power and status, both of which are under threat from Erebuz. He will defend himself and his domain, and while he may not ever be a friend, he is the enemy of our enemy, and that is enough.

As Lao Racine asked his question, Ondona placed her finger under her chin to ponder for a minute. "Well it does seem like a good idea at first to work with the lord of all evil. As Odin said, he values his pride and his domain over most things which would make sense that any outside help offering assistance would be welcome to help him. However I believe working with him may lead to some unforeseen consequences, sure we may be helping him but it does not mean that he won't stab us all in the back once everything is done. Sure, there is a chance that we both could work together with no problems at all but the threat of Lucifer having a plan once everything is over is a greater risk to us in my opinion. All in all, I say we should not assist him." She answered, taking her finger off of her chin.

Ondona would be lying if she said she was not nervous at all, Odin and The Earthmother both suggested that they should assist Lucifer. And here she was, a lesser known Goddess at that had a different opinion about the matter. Of course Nimsirril also thought it was also a bad idea to assist Lucifer which made her a little more relaxed knowing she was not the only one with these thoughts in mind.

The tree simply smiled at the young Ondona. Though she was much younger than the others present it was her own wisdom that brought her to that decision. Lao Racine turned his gaze to the others and groaned as the flames within grew slightly hotter as the old oak took in a deep breath.

"An enemy of our enemy is not our friend." The tree looked at Odin only to then bring his gaze over to Hel and then Gaia. "An old saying though used as an excuse to assert an agenda of greed and desire. You wish to let the people know that once again their gods have some kind of authority within this multiverse but allow an aged oak to pose his own question to this slowly failing group." Lao Racine coughed a little as his branches and leaves rustled in the gentle caress of the wind.

"Are you truly ready to act as heads of a divine council? It seems to me that the ideas of what is good and what is evil have all but been purposefully forgotten within this grove. Gaia you might claim to be a force of neutrality but your actions here are something to be questioned." Lao Racine brought his ever burning eyes towards Odin and Hel.

"As for the both of you I find myself perplexed. I am not fully aware of your peoples histories but from what I can tell you both seem far to eager to engage in this activity regardless of what kind of sight you claim to have." The tree only chuckled slightly as it searched the land with its roots. "Titans once threatened the very nature of mankind and now I wonder if it would not be so again."

Odin shook his head and acknowledged the old tree and Odona. "There is no doubt in my mind that Lucifer would try to take advantage of us in the end, but knowing that we should all be better prepared for it. You forget that I have dealt with a son who conspires in shadows and trickery, and though I will never say this to him, I have learned much from him. But as to your concerns, you need only open your eyes and look about at humanity and it's current fate." He gestured about him, forgetting that his vision was not as theirs. "All around us are the signs of failing, and should things continue on this path there will be a reckoning we cannot overcome. Perhaps you are older than I, great one, and you have accepted your fate with magnimity, but so long as their is breath in my lungs and a beat in my chest, I shall not let such darkness come to pass, not knowing I have the strength to stop it."

Imnariel stepped over and sat with her back against the old trees bark, closing her eyes and proceeding to take a nap.

Letting out a long sigh, Gaia decided that visual aids speak louder than speech or such.

With that she let the glamor fall as her body began to detriorate so completely, covered in horrible marrings, scars, bruises, her hair matted and stringy, her facial feature morphing to more elderly and frail looking being. Even her living dress started to die, and leaves evolve to brown colour, or completely turn to ash.

By the end she looked weak, pale and less alive, "This is... this is what waiting and doing little has done to me. You treat me as a fool forgetting my life is connected to the planet, as they wreck, raze and destroy all I become more deformed and hideous. I don't trust Lucifer, I don't even like him..." there may be evident shock, neutrality had vanished, "You want bluntness without my kindness, here it is. I don't trust him. I don't even believe he would benefit us. But in the end he wants to rule the world, not destroy it. He wants to rule, my brother, my destructive incarnate sibling sees only desire to crush and dismantle all we built. If this continues I'll leave this existence and never return. I will lose all connection with this life. The planet and I share a grand symbiotic relationship. That is what you all seem to forget... I tried to be diplomatic, explain the point. But here is the blunt truth, if I don't leave I will die. Look at my body... look at what mankind and other beings do in naivety... I am trying to start this because my brother must always be stopped... If I lingered I would endanger myself, but if I can get this Pantheon going, I will die happy."

With that said, she stared at all around, "This planet murdering me, and yet I am willing to forgo common sense and stay. Because mankind is many things, but they are best hope that we have. The mortals will always be the group we most require. If they believe themselves not alone, they would act in our favour. I don't trust Lucifer, but if I was pick who I am willing to at least speak too more, it would be Lucifer. Less said about my brother and my attempts to make him see reason..."

Hel appeared to begin to move up, but stopped as if uncertain, "Mother, why do you stay. Being in this existence is destroying you?"

A soft breeze blew through the Grove, brushing past through the trees and greens of the Grove. While the Gods were talking, another was watching. Unseen and un-felt till she decided to make her presence known. The wind turned cold as it blew, far colder then it should be as the shadows of the trees grew ever so slightly. She was amused, surely this was some form of entertainment show piece that the One had not encountered for eons. Surely this had to be some sort of comedy unfolding before her very eyes and with it, it brought laughter.

Laughter danced upon the winds, a kind of joyous laughter that showed pure merriment at the given situation: Gaia's disfigured form, the supposed 'Pantheon being brought together by this rag tag group of ancient Gods. If they had this much gaul, then only she could laugh at their foolishness and their ability to try and stop what was coming.

"You cannot be serious...this must be some sort of jest dear Sister. Surely you have finally fallen down the cliff and into my Embrace? Surely the Gaia of old would not think that siding with the Lord of Hell would be a wise move?"

Gaia would know this voice and only Gaia would remember her name.

From a corner of the Grove stood what appeared to be a tall Dark Elf with a large black parasol over her shoulder. A large gown she wore which was shrouded by wisps of black and gloves of oily shadows. Her eyes, twisting and turning as if they were black holes stared towards Gaia with a very animalistic smile on her face.

Alisah, Darkness Incarnate and Sister of Erebuz and Gaia stood before the gathering of Gods, before a single tear fell down her cheek.

And she began to laugh.

A laughter that filled the air with an air of freezing cold, so cold as the All Consuming Darkness itself was. A laugh which held a wondrous mirth and dangerous edge all the same as the girl appearing no older then 17 held her sides in a fit of tearing laughter.

"Gaia stop it! Your going to make me bust a gut! I mean look at you! The days have not been kind. Surely you realize more then any other that the end of this Cycle is nigh. Why do you fight the inevitable? Your body is frail, old and decayed and yet you try to convine a grouping of Dead Gods into a force which would try to fight our Dear Brother? Surely you would realize what Entropy would bring you? Life anew, restore your vitality and restore your Earth to its pristine form. Why try to seek a solution when you could infact go where you are needed"

The woman raised her hand and snapped her fingers, creating a large blackness infront of the sun, covering the Grove in a dim light of shade.

Finally, turning away from Gaia, she addressed the rest of those gathered "So many old faces...so many whom I have not seen in eons. Hel, Odin, Ondona, Loa. Ages past have done well for you all. Really I wanted to congratulate you all on a performance well made. You certainly cheered up my existence with such a piece. Surely after Creation begins anew, I will laugh at this wonderful performance for a few dozen cycles. Truly from the bottom of my heart, I thank you" She said with a deep curtsy

Alisah's eyes turned once more to Gaia while offering her a beaming smile "Have you no words for you Elder sister Gaia? No words of greeting? Or words of encouragement?"

At the dark entities arrival, Imnariel smiled, and then faded into mist. Her speech became dreamlike and soft, as though heard from far away. "I go to call.... Upon the Fallen star...."

A bright white light began to from a few paces away from the other gods. with that light a soothing of truth and warmth that malts the coldness in the air surrounding the area the light touches. At the center of that light an beardless, athletic youth steps out of it looking around at the other gods, taking in what he see's. A tone of sweet music hits the ears of the other gods like a soft breeze in the wind.

"forgive me for interrupting mother, my name is Apolo and i must say something before this becomes worst"

"You say it's inevitable to fight and that it is no hope for us to win this without the devil we know, and that is where you are wrong in that train of thinking." taking a min for words to sink in and looking around at the group before beginning again.

"but you are also right mother, that this is not about black an white it's about nature of things we fight all along." As he spoke tears fall from Apolo eyes like stardust."The mortals don't need hope at all they will always have that because it is a part of them. it is we who need hope in us. the choices we make here will effect everything and everyone we know and love and siding with pride will only make it worst but it is much worst if we do nothing. So i say this give the fallen star a chance to shine again because he to is a part this world, but be wary of his nature as well."

"But whatever you choose mother i hope you don't lose hope in us because i know that we will never lose hope in you." Wiping the tears from his face he smiled at Gaia and said, "for better or worst you will always have me" hoping again his words had calm Gaia down a little.
