Union of All

The Union of All follows what is left of the old universe, which Epani and Yisini are dutifully protecting from any and all harm. Inside the universe though, the former Voidborn Kenon is plotting to bring unity to literally everyone.

Pleas After Catastrophes

“I wasn’t prepared for this…”

Kayel, the All-Ksa of the Skyavok, was shaking, trying to keep himself upright, trying to focus on his words. But as he stood in front of the High General of the Rethavok, Kayel couldn’t make the right words come out. Broken, crippled words squeaked from his...Read More »


Plans of a Union

“Alright, so let me get this straight. You want to create a pan-universal union of mortal races, where every race has their own specific job and duty?”

Kenon nodded, perched on his throne, going through a series of notes. In the last few days, the Rethavok leadership had been visited by...Read More »


A Late Hospital Visit

Lysar tutted as she flicked through a glossy magazine. She never really understood who read these rather unsavoury tabloids, normally written by gossiping Skyavok or Cassian Temthans, but there were always tons of them in waiting rooms across Rethan territories.

This waiting room was particularly quiet, but that was because it...Read More »


Quotation for a Sculpture

“Hai!”

Estee seemed not at all bothered that the High General of the Rethavok was standing in front of her, blocking the light from her work. Sure, her world had been turned upside down and destroyed, pretty much literally, but she had so much more time to work on her art...Read More »


Time Off Work

Rethais sighed as he climbed out of bed and wearily made his way to the bathroom. He sighed some more as he relieved himself then washed his hands and face, then continued to sigh as he wandered back into the bedroom, staring at the empty bed. Lysar was already awake,...Read More »


Work Demands

As the heavy golden doors slammed shut behind him, Rethais was beginning to think that maybe he should have had this meeting over the phone. Standing at the gold-laced desk, papers scattered everywhere, was a furious High General Kenon, snorting in anger and frustration.

“So you want to betray me again.”

Rethais...Read More »


Unexpected Work Meeting

Rethais wasn’t really sure what he had did to be the subject of the High General’s rage. He had done everything that Kenon had asked and more. He had barely stopped to eat and his office was now his home. Yet for some reason, the High General was furious at...Read More »


A No Show At A Meeting

“You look awful. Are you alright?”

“I am fine, thank you. I get that a lot.”

Rethais rubbed his eyes wearily as he sat down at the table alongside Kayel, the All-Ksa of the Skyavok. Really, Kayel looked far worse for wear than Rethais did, but they both had an aura of...Read More »


Recovery Night

“You should be resting.”

Veeyel shuffled across the room towards the front door, where his partner had just entered. Kayel’s bright yellow armour is what always reminded Veeyel of his beloved friend, but even with his jumbled memories, Veeyel could tell that Kayel was not doing well. His armour was faded...Read More »


A Racy Request

“Do you ever get bored, Yisini?”

The Allbirther rolled her eyes at Kenon’s question. She was bored right now, clearing up the remains of a small outbreak in a suburban Temthan town. She had been bored a lot lately, having been busy dealing with both the life and death sides of...Read More »


Ktonia

Kohra grunted as he spat metallic blood from his mouth, then carefully wiped tears and more blood from two of his eyes. The formerly noble Kronospast was covered from head to toe in dust and pain, white and gold robes turned grey from dirt.

Standing behind Kohra were a handful of...Read More »


A Slight Miscalculation

“I think… I may have miscalculated…” Kohra muttered to himself as he collapsed in the middle of the hall, his strength flooding from his tiny body. It had taken all of Kohra’s might to achieve this singular feat, to teleport the last 203 remaining Kronospasts to a new, safer home....Read More »


Surprise Lawyer

While the sudden supply of candies and sweets had helped calm his nerves, Kohra was certain that something strange was going on. According to the guards muttering outside his cell, he was supposed to have been shoved onto a ship and abandoned in some remote region. But apparently, one of...Read More »


Teleport to Freedom

Kohra gasped for air as he pulled himself out of the water fountain, trying not to choke on dirty, endlessly recycled water. It must have been late as there was no one around and the lights on the edge of the fountain were the only things guiding him to safety....Read More »


Stray Skyan

“Can I keep him please, dad? Pleaseeeeee?”

Rethais grunted as he threw his briefcase on the floor and chucked his cape vaguely at the cape hook, then grunted some more as he had to pick both items up and put them away properly. He hadn’t even properly looked at whatever the...Read More »


Some Sort of Job Review

“Good evening everyone, and welcome to our first review!”

Epani was a much, much smaller being than she used to be. The Panelix used to sail through space, overshadowing planets and capable swallowing moons. But ever since she took control of this tiny slice of her old universe, Epani had shrunk...Read More »


A Nose for Things

The Whenvern soared across the edge of the tiny universe, a place now known as the Panelixsphere. What had once been a rather standard universe had been reduced to mere fragments, and now Kairos was spending most of his time trying to stop it from fragmenting further. While the Panelixsphere...Read More »


Technically Post-Apocalyptic

Kayen grunted to himself as he hang out wet clothes and plating on the balcony, somewhat lost in thought. Across the way, an older Rethan was also hanging out their laundry on their own balcony, while a handful of gats wandered around in the street below. The weather was cloudy,...Read More »


Brief Interview with a Kronospast

“Bloody Light, we ordered way, way too much food yesterday…” Kayen groaned as he spotted the piles of sealed food in the fridge, then tried to pick which one he wanted to eat. Most of it was rather chunky and wet, heavy, sauce-covered stews with soft meat and plenty of...Read More »


A Rethan Disguise

“There’s no way this will work…”

Kayen shifted his weight, the extra armour on his shoulders feeling rather heavy and awkward. Normally Kayen wore very basic armour. While most Skyans considered him somewhat attractive, Kayen never really liked explicitly showing that he was attractive. His coverings, from the plain stomach wraps...Read More »


No Longer In Two

“Where the fuck am I?”

Everything was a little bit too bright and white. Arkay blinked, trying to open his eyes and see where he was, but gave up. Instead, he tried to shield his eyes with his hands, but Arkay quickly discovered that he was tied down.

“What the fuck are...Read More »


Eavesdropping on Deities

Rethais and Vaksavar pressed the side of their heads to the door, hoping to better hear what was happening on the other side. Normally, the two Rethan Generals would be working very separate duties, but something weird was going on with their boss and they were curious. After a couple...Read More »


Siblings and Family Plans

“It took too long to get to this…”

Yisini flapped her pointless little wings as she signed her name on the four-page contract, then moved to one side so her little brother could do the same. The six deities had been arguing for far, far too long over this stupid universe,...Read More »


Nicle Day

“Alright, everyone has the day off!”

Everyone stopped what they were doing and turned to face their dear leader, who had seemingly popped up out of thin air in the middle of the hall. Everyone present had literally just arrived at work, on perfect time as always. As their leader had...Read More »


A Proper Goodbye

Gath growled as the doorbell rang. He wasn’t expecting visitors. He didn’t want visitors. He just wanted to be left alone. Just him and his little, unhatched egg. And maybe Talmin, whenever he returned home from work. But, despite his desires, Gath didn’t want to just ignore whoever was at...Read More »


Lonely Epani

Epani never liked visiting the crystalline sky temple. She didn’t like leaving the safety of her lovely, adopted universe, to visit the place where all the ‘time stuff’ happened. But that was where Epani was going, because she needed to talk to Yisini and that was where Yisini had been...Read More »


Dessaron Donations

“Wow… that’s a huge offer…”

Psiksi fidgeted awkwardly, not at all sure how to feel. Standing on the opposite side of the desk was Veeksiar, the grand Rethan Archivist, keeper of the Great Rethan Libraries. Standing next to him was Veeksiar, the Great Skyan Librarian. They were both aware they shared...Read More »


Lord of Void and Sadness

Rethais was late for work. He was almost never late for work, but today was an exception. Thankfully, Rethais had called ahead of time, informing his colleagues that he needed to drop someone off at the nearby port, but, weirdly, he’d never gotten a response.

As Rethais arrived at work, he...Read More »


A Weird Knock on the Door

Psiksi wasn’t sure what to say as the door opened, revealing the purple-scarfed Skyan behind it. A hundred different phrases raced through his head, to the point that he didn’t actually know what he said.

“I’m sorry.”

Kayess-En blinked, staring at the cute little yellow Skyan at the door. Kayess-En, Kass for...Read More »


Plans Behind Epani's Back

Yisini clapped her hands together with glee as Kenon and Epani both sat down at the table. The room was very gaudy in its decorations, with false gold pillars in every corner and a fountain of wine in the room’s centre. The table was overflowing with food and drink, all...Read More »


All-Ksa's Partner

“Hi!”

Kenon stared at the strange little being standing in the doorway. It was clearly a Skyavok, but it was also clearly disabled, leaning on a pair of crutches despite having seemingly working legs. As Kenono scanned the being’s physical integrity though, he became suspicious. Mental trauma, not so much physical...Read More »


Plans for Political Dinner

Rethais grunted as he fumbled with his keys, struggling to find the right one for the front door. Most Rethans only had a handful of keys – one for their home, one for their vehicle and one for their work. Rethais not only had those, but he had tons of...Read More »


Mini Quarantine

Kairos as tempted to scream as the frozen water unexpectedly poured over him, but he had to restrain himself, lest someone else heard him. That being said, the last thing Kairos expected as he set foot back into his old universe was for a torrent of icy water to land...Read More »


Dinner Opportunities

Rethais shuddered as he felt a heavy hand on his shoulder. He had been calmly working at his desk all day, reading through a large number of peace agreements between the Banikans and the Temthans. The peace treaty had little to do with the Rethavok, but since the Rethavok were...Read More »


Shop Cafe

“Hello, dear! Long time no see!”

Gath blinked, the fog clearing from his head. He had been staring for far too long at a bottle of ultra soft plating wax, a liquid soap Rethans used to clean their armour plating. This one in particular was meant for growing and developing plating...Read More »


Pain in the Neck

Rethais’s neck as sore. Not all of it, just that awkward part between the neck and shoulder, where one’s normal armour collar would sit. Why his neck was sore, Rethais had no real idea. But the fact that part of him was sore and hurting was somewhat concerning.

Normally, pain was...Read More »


Too Long In The Dark

“When was the last time you went outside?”

Kohra blinked his eyes one at a time, starting with the two on the right and ending with the two on the left. The white light from the screen in front of him seemed brighter than the sun. Or maybe it was because...Read More »


Two Potential Diagnoses

“Be honest now, when did you first notice this as an issue?”

Rethais grunted, trying to remember, so he could give an honest answer. The pain had become noticeable and annoying only a couple of days ago, but there had been some vague pain for a while. As for the visible...Read More »


Non-Diagnosis

Rethais took a deep breath as he stepped into the small office, preparing himself for bad news. He had faced an awful lot of it lately, so really, he shouldn’t have been so worried. But this was a potential health issue, something Rethais couldn’t easily fix. And that was what...Read More »


Immortal Discussion

“What have you infected me with?”

Kenon was vaguely annoyed with his guards. Normally they were much better at keeping unwanted people out of his throne room, especially when Kenon wanted to be left alone. But today, they had failed their job spectacularly. Standing in the middle of Kenon’s private area...Read More »


Forgotten Contracts

“Ser, I am clearly busy right now.”

Rethais rolled his eyes and tutted. The being sitting in front of him, a young Skyan ambassador, looked rather worried, wondering who Rethais was talking to. As the Skyan turned around, their worries turned into genuine fear, as they spotted the godly Void Lord...Read More »


Hatchling

“Hey, shush, you are safe, little one. You are just hungry…”

In one hand, Gath held a small bottle of mushed up vitamins, mixed with water, sugar and plenty of protein. In the other, he cradled a tiny, wriggling mess, a baby Rethan, barely plated, eyes blinking in the dim light....Read More »


Parking Lot Conversation

“Hello, Rethais.”

Rethais jumped, dropping the two bags of shopping he was holding and nearly slamming the vehicle door on his fingers. Due to the season, darkness had arrived at 5pm, and Rethais had only managed to finish his weekly shop at 6pm, so by the time he had arrived home,...Read More »


Bribed Back

“Are you really watching me from over the fence, Vaxavius?”

Vaxavius crossed his arms, tutting. “No one answered the front door and I need to speak to you urgently.”

With a sigh, Rethais threw his shovel to one side and approached the fence at the end of the garden, where Vaxavius was...Read More »


Bang At The Door

“Hey, were either of you expecting a par-”

The front door blasted off its hinges throwing Kayen backwards and flinging him across the floor. Before he could even attempt to work out why the front door had exploded, a heavy metal collar snapped around Kayen’s neck, pinning him to the tiled...Read More »


In Front of the Lord

“Hm. Looks like he’s redecorated…”

All things considered, Kohra was actually feeling rather calm right now. The trip from his home where he had been kidnapped from, all the way to the Grand Palace that marked the centre of Rethan territories and influence had been rather calm and, more importantly, Kohra...Read More »


A Brief Break From Work

“Hi Ser!” Trismit bounced as he let himself in. “You are home early! Normally you do not get in until late!”

Rethais looked up from his tablet, smiling slightly. “You do know you do not need to call me ser, right? Any parental name is acceptable.”

Trismit shrugged, dumping his bag by...Read More »


Legion of Threats

Veeksiar tutted as he weaved through the lines of soldiers, making his way to the grand office of the High General. He had been working alongside Vaxavius and Orthon, two high ranking Generals, for the last few weeks, creating a very large, very comprehensive plan on how to make non-Rethan...Read More »


A Godly Invitation from a Mortal

“Oh! Hello, little mortal! What brings you to my domain?”

Rethais glanced over his shoulder and pointed at a wooden door which didn’t seem to be attached to anything. Then again, Rethais was pretty sure that he was standing on either clouds or cotton wool, floating above a mountain, speaking to...Read More »


Elevator Chat

Rethais had planned to just head home after yet another tedious day of pointless work. But as he closed the door to his office, he noticed someone sitting outside. A small, black and yellow, familiar Skyavok.

“Uh, what are you doing here, All-Ksa Kayel?”

Kayel folded up the pamphlet he had been...Read More »


Final Feast Touches

Orthon clapped his hands with glee as his soldiers finished the last few decorative touches on the massive hall. Everything had been delicately decorated with a vast array of beautiful golden ornaments, freshly re-planted fir trees, meters upon meters of sparkly lights and more tinsel than was probably necessary. It...Read More »


Quick Tour

The plan had been to head straight to the fancy villa that Kairos and Kenon had set up. But as soon as Epani had heard that Kinisis arrived, she INSISTED on inviting the Allmaker on a tour of her new universe. A cute little floating sleigh had been summoned, with...Read More »


Reunion in the Cells

“Tahnahos, you shouldn’t be snooping around down here!” Phovos protested as the little Kronospast tugged at her arm. “We are supposed to be on duty, protecting Kinisis!”

Tahnahos paid no heed to his fellow Guardian’s concerns. Instead, he continued dragging Phovos deeper into the golden palace, down several stairwells, past a...Read More »


Five Minutes

The catacombs of Thre-Vretania were vast, empty, and normally rather calm. In the distant past, these water-ridden caves had been sanctuary to early Rethavok. The darkness had been used as cover not just to spawn, but also as a source of protection and safety from other races. In modern times...Read More »


Yet Another Farewell

“You’re in a hurry to leave. Can you wait a moment?”

Out of all the beings Arkay thought would try and stop him, he didn’t think they’d send Yisini. The Allbirther had an awfully sad aura around her, a stark contrast to the golden blood and anger on Arkay’s hands.

“I’m done...Read More »


Leaderless

Rethais was rather upset. Today was supposed to be a day off, a day of rest, after the feasting of Macromera. A day to sleep off the food and alcohol and spend time with the family. Considering he had been working non-stop over the winter break, Rethais had been desperate...Read More »


Liquid Regret

“You come back for five minutes and catastrophe follows you…”

Kinisis clicked her tongue in annoyance. Epani’s statement was rather insulting, and she was currently preoccupied giving her Guardians jobs to do. Once Kinisis had snapped her fingers and sent her Guardians away, she turned her true attention to Epani.

“I love...Read More »


New Plans

“I have a plan.”

Kairos couldn’t help but roll his eyes at Kinisis’s statement. The four deities sat in what remained of the Void Lord’s old throne room, sitting around a large, hastily made table that covered a large hole in the floor. Several bowls of various snacks had been placed...Read More »


Six Guards

“Oh! I love them!” Epani clapped her fins together with glee as Kinisis presented the six colossal beings, instructing each one of them to stand in a certain position. As they each stepped on specially designed platforms, a massive, diamond-laced steel door opened up, revealing the insides of the universe.

“I’m...Read More »


Better Leadership Pending

“You’re basically in charge again, yet you still work from this tiny office?”

Rethais was literally just about to leave his office when the pink and purple cloud appeared. After a couple of seconds, the cloud stopped expanding and thickened into a real form, that of the Allbirther, the serpentine Goddess...Read More »
