SFD Part 1

Hi all! I'm here to say that I've written my own fanfiction.
There aren't many people in it yet but I'm working on it for part 2.

Enjoy!



The wind had picked up, making the trees sway and the clouds swirl. A small light flickered in the distance, moving steadily through forest. On closer inspection the light was actually a person surrounded by fire. The person’s name: Pyro-Dawn.

Pyro slumped down, gasping for breath, at the foot of a great oak tree. He clasped a locket around his neck, before standing up again and continuing his escape. He flinched as branches and thorns slashed at him as he passed, leaving him with more scratches than he could count.
“Great,” Pyro muttered to himself through clenched teeth, “yet another trail for them to follow, I might as well just give myself up!” Of course, this would never actually be an option; vampires didn’t care how they caught their prey, only if they caught it at all. 

***

Octaboona sighed as he watched the flickering light, pursued by a wave of darkness moving through the distant tree line. “Honestly,” he grumbled, “I’ve fought remnants; I’ve fought zombies; I even helped to banish the Faceless Ones, but this boy! You take your eye off him for a second and he’s got himself into another situation.” Octaboona waved his hand and the wave of blackness dissipated as it was pummelled with bursts of searing hot air. The flickering light shot upwards into the sky followed by a trail of fire and flew in an intricate pattern spelling out ‘Thanks Octa!’
“I give up” groaned Octaboona and he trudged towards the flickering light.
As Octaboona approached him, Pyro noticed rainclouds beginning to gather. He dimmed the flame that flickered from his hair and pulled the tinfoil covered hood of his hoodie over his head.
“You know, of all the natural events of the world, rain just has to be my least favourite” Pyro complained.
“Yes Pyro-Dawn, I do know and I will still know next time it rains, and the time after that, and the time after that.”


***

“Darn.” muttered Nyx Dawn as she watched the vampires fall; this child was always saved by his teacher, Octaboona, just before her attacks seriously harmed him. He seemed rather good with fire, but had little skill with the other elements. If only she could get rid of him before he posed a threat to her masters, then she could focus on Octaboona himself; an enemy worthy of her talents.
Nyx turned and left the clearing that she had been watching from and disappeared into the shadows.

***

Back at Elysium Asylum, Pyro ran through the doors and up the flights of stairs, past many windows, paintings and magical artefacts, to his room. He shoved piles of books and papers away from the blue couch in the middle of the room and flopped onto it, grabbing a paper from the stack on the couch. He read through its contents and laid it neatly back on the stack.
There was a knock at the door.
“Come in,” called Pyro, sitting up straight so as not to look messy. The papers were beyond tidying already so Pyro paid them no heed. The door opened and Kallista Pendragon walked into the room, glancing at the neat stack of papers that Pyro had just been reading.
“Octa tells me that you were attacked by a hoard of vampires and I can tell by those papers that he spoke the truth,” reprimanded Kallista. “We’ve told you countless times; stay with Octa!”
“I know what you guys keep telling me. But how can I get better at magic if I never get the chance!” Pyro leapt from the couch, two fireballs clutched in his hands, before dashing through the door and towards the central staircase.
“No! Wait Pyro! Come back!” cried Kallista as Pyro leapt over the railing of the staircase and plummeted down, landing with a resounding ‘THUD’ at the ground floor.
“Pyro?” called Kallista as she rushed down the staircase, “Pyro? Are you alright?”
“No,” came the rather pained reply, “I fell from the seventh floor. Of course I’m not alright!”
“So why did you jump? What was the point of it, and why did you try to leave in the first place?” Kallista enquired, running the last few steps towards Pyro.
“I don’t know why, I just got really mad and I tried to prove myself, once and for all.”
“Well you can explain that to Israel in the medical bay.”
Pyro picked himself up gingerly and began to walk towards the medical bay.

“Not so fast!” came a voice and shadows rose up around Pyro, locking his arms and legs to the floor.
 “Show yourself!” yelled Kallista, suddenly holding two samurai swords.
The shadows in the far right of the entrance hall swirled and writhed forming a silhouette. The silhouette became solid and Nyx Dawn was there, glaring at Kallista and Pyro.
“Nyx!” spat Kallista, “I should have guessed.”
“Of course you should,” snarled Nyx, “But why does it not surprise me that you didn’t?”
“You’ll regret saying that Miss Dawn.”
Kallista lunged with her swords, spinning and kicking the air, battering Nyx against the walls. Nyx’s eyes flashed black and she grabbed hold of her jewelled dagger, shadows pouring from it and whipping at Kallista. As they advanced, Kallista went into a flurry of slicing blades; the shadows were sliced and diced, falling to the ground. But even as Kallista fought, she knew that she could never beat the limitless shadows that surrounded her. The shadows latched around her wrists, then tripped her, sending her falling to the ground. Gasping for breath, Kallista looked daggers at Nyx, who grinned evilly.
The ground rumbled and the shadows around Pyro formed a hole in the ground which Pyro fell through. The hole abruptly closed.

“Let. Her. Go!”       
Nyx ground her teeth. “What an unpleasant surprise.” she spat.
“Likewise.” murmured the voice.
Its owner stepped from the cover of a marble pillar.
“Skyril!” gasped Kallista, “But I thought you were-”
  “Dead? Yes that’s right, I died didn’t I?”
A throwing knife appeared next to Nyx’s head.
“Now let her GO!”

  4. Yep I will include Kenneth Lakinson in the fanfic

    what adept power? (shoots lightning, shapeshifter, makes people turn to muffins etc.)

    ReplyDelete
  5. You may choose and adept power same thing but make it epic (maybe not muffins one, unless they explode or something). In my original story which I am writing, he can;t die, but that;s kinda cheap in this sorta story... I dunno... just choose or message me with suggestions or something I currently have mind blank...
