PostSubject: Twilight fades   Wed Mar 09, 2016 9:10 am

The night was falling over the Angel World, no more Ascension rituals occurring for this daily cycle.
Only 2 managed, anyway. The temple grounds started to empty, the fields regained their natural look without Angels swarming it and Mount Targon was once again casting its massive late evening shadow over the Temple underneath. At the foot, near an abandoned cavern, Diana sat against the rock wall, head bowed down, eyes closed, the crescent blade planted in the ground next to her, waiting for the other to arrive as she hoped. Or others. The message she'd planted within the books specified this time and place, with the question whether whoever read it was willing to learn more about the truth behind the Solari.

William bid his colleges goodnight, but as he exited the temple, he knew his day was far from finished. He calmly walked from the temple, the traffic around him slowly decreasing until he stood alone. The message he held said that in the meeting he would be told of the truth behind Solari...

He hope it was not another crazy preacher again. Though there was risk to this. Solari was a well established and well renowned belief. Anyone who wanted to change or modify it's teaching. That could spell trouble for the individual. William continued forward regardless. Knowledge was always the foundation of his beliefs and he would not miss the opportunity. Soon William arrived at the location, 3 minutes earlier than the message wanted.

"Hello, anyone here?"

Diana looked up from inside the cave. "Come, follow." She wasn't visible as the sun's light was nowhere to be found at the shadowside of the mountain. The only thing of her that was visible was the faint glowing symbol on her forehead, as she walked backwards into the all too familiar cave. "I won't bite."

William wasn't too sure he was worried about 'biting', he was more concerned of the weapon she had with her. He followed her into the cave, the darkness engulfing him like a cold sheet. The temperature was much cooler here and he held back a shiver.

"My name is William, who are you?" It was best to know who he was dealing with.

She functioned as a torch somewhat, illuminating the path before him only slightly as she kept silently walking backwards for several minutes. Eventually, they arrived into an opening, a huge chamber with pillars lying across the floor, some still standing, and the newly arrived moonlight coming from high above, through eye openers, inside, illuminating the room and revealing herself while at it. She turned her back to him as she entered the ruins. "My name's Diana. Yes, the Heretic. So they say." Perfectly calm, she placed the crescent blade against a fallen pillar, then turned back to him and leaned against the pillar herself, sinking to the ground, her head looking upwards at the moonlight.

He had her of Diana of course. There were few who hadn't. Crazy, Foolish, and Heretic were a few of the multitude of title whispered on the lips of the members of Solari. William however had never really followed the crowds. He leaned against the cave's wall mirroring Diana. The rock stabbed uncomfortably into his back but he had more important things to be thinking about. Could he trust her? Honestly, he had known her, well known of her before the "incident." he only hear stories of her study of Solari and was not seen as foolish then. After the incident however, she was harshly criticized and branded. Maybe he would learn the truth to the councils harsh actions here.

"Thank you for telling me your name. Please tell me what this...'truth' behind Solari is."

"As we all are imprinted in our minds at ghastly young age, we are told the Solari are the main vanguard of warriors for the Angel world. Protectors and guardians of our civilization. They held the gates from all darkness coming to take our safety away from us. The sun is mightiest, they say." She got up and gestured for him to follow her, leaving her blade at the pillar. "This depicts something else entirely."

He followed her again think over what she had revealed. He was well versed in to the history of Solari. The strength from the sun was essential to all living beings. The heat generated strength and in turn, we used our strength to support the world. The moon was seen as the deceiver, a fake light in our lives. This belief was the foundation of the faith and anything that could disprove it would shake the world as they knew it. This 'truth'...would it have the same effect?

They came to a wallpainting. Several soldiers, half unmistakable as Solari warriors, the other however clad in the same armor as Diana was. Fighting, side by side, against hordes of shadows emanating from portals and gateways. The next image showed few of their people surviving, yet victorious. Diana let her hand slide over the cold stone as they passed the tale. The following image made her shiver a minor bit, not from cold, but out of rage. The Solari soldiers striking down the others.

Diana found her voice back after showing William the depicted story. "There were two tribes in the past. The Solari, relying their religion on the sun, and the Lunari, who worshipped the moon. I have shattered and fragmented memories of all this past in my mind, and these paintings confirm that once, the two were allies, fighting together. But the Solari betrayed their allies. Just as the elders cast me aside when I showed them the Lunari were real. I give them a truth that could open so many new pathways, and they call me a heretic."

William stepped forward looking at the depictions. If he was a more thickheaded follower he would probably be looking for signs that the paintings had been tampered with. But the pictures held no lies. They showed clearly that the Solari soldiers fought alongside Lunari soldiers like brothers.

"Fascinating." He mummered looked from each painting to the next. "What caused the betray though?" he wondered aloud. Clearly they two groups worked with each other in the past, but there was no picture showing animosity between the two groups prior to their betrayal. William could understand if they always had a bad history with each other, but there wer no records confirming his suspicions.

"The same reason I was sentenced to death for heresy. Because they are zealots. The sun is everything, there is no other possibility. That is how they think." She walked back to pick up her sword. "I'm not proud of what I've done, and I can't justify it. But I have always been a somewhat outcast. And then I find something I can live with and they wish to kill me for being openminded." The cold steel of the crescent blade in her hand calmed her a bit. "Blind to the truth."

William only nodded taking Diana's words into consideration. The need for only one belief? Why though? Was the temple failing and they needed to kill the Lunari to ensure their survival? William shook his head thinking of all the inconsistencies with that line of thought. There must be more than mere Zealots and pride.

"What were the beliefs of the Lunari?" He asked calmly. It was forbidden to research the topic and he had assume because of pagan rituals or some sort of practice against the sun. He wasn't so sure now, He hoped Diana could clear up the holes in his thoughts.

"They say the moon provides false light. But it merely reflects the light of the sun where the sun cannot reach. The moon holds tides in check. It creates an additional gravitational field that supports ecosystems. It's just as essential as the sun. Personally, I prefer the night. The cool breeze, starlit skies, the calm empty streets. The beliefs as the Lunari had them are, in my mind, somewhere. But only bits and pieces, that make no sense together, are coming up. I can't answer that, but I do know one thing. Solari fight to protect in daylight, as Lunari used to do so in the night."

William eyes widened momentary, before narrowing in focus. Diana made a valid point. No matter the time of day, human sought the shade on a hot day. They hide in the shadows of trees and umbrellas to avoid its blaze. Animals everywhere rested under the moons dim glow as the sun was too strong to allow sleep. Deserts were a example of what too much sun could bring. A barren wasteland devoid of life. Just as the sun played a part, the moon was important as well.

"You may be onto something." William said and he relayed his thoughts to Diana. Maybe there was more to Lunari than he originaly thought.

"They think differently." She came walking back to him, the blade in her hands. Part of her vowed to never rejoin them up there on Mount Targon's higher peaks. That if she had it in her, she would destroy them, as they destroyed the Lunari. But that blind rage only was being held back by the very moon itself, it's cooling and calming effect it had on her. "I half expected another blockheaded zealot. The past 3 that came here were nowhere near as accepting of a possible other truth."

William sighed, he could agree with that. While he did follow the beliefs of the Solari, he was not particularly... a fanatic. He could see Diana's argument and it made sense to him. The sun was not all powerful and certainly not what was needed at all times. One only had to look around to see proof that too much of anything spelled trouble. But what did this mean for Solari? He could see why the elders rejected this line of thought. His mind snapped back to something Diana said.

"You said the past three were not as accepting. What happened to them? Did they simply walk out?" He was surprised he had not head of this till now.

"Not ... quite." She refused to say out loud what was already quite obvious by the fact that he had never heard of this and she had not been discovered by the current elders. "They all started it. Just in the fashion of the elders back then."

William only nodded in understanding. If someone left and blabbed to the elder they would storm down here and destroy anything they could get their hands on. The pictures on the wall alone would send them into a frenzy.

"I see, then I recommended you stop leaving notes in for the other angels to find. I can't promise you that there will be other as understanding as I am." his eyes narrowed. "I can promise you that there will be angels that will be more than willing to take you on in a fight. I don't know too much about you fighting style but I assure you that you won't win every fight."

"I'm not out to fight the Solari, though I would very much like to see their house burn in their eyes as they see all what they had build lost in a night, as they've done to us. But bet for the world, would be to work together." She looked at him, the symbol on her forehead matching that on the ruins. "Are you an ally, then?"

William tapped his chin. It wasn't he need to think about it too much. He certainly was interested in learning more about Lunari and he had no qualms with helping Diana bring this information to light. This would be revolutionary. However he would rather not jump in head first into something he didn not have a full understanding of. He was sympathetic to Diana's cause and found it just, however he wanted to know what being an ally would entail.

"I will be more than happy to help you bring these words to the attention of the not only the council but to the whole of the world. How would I help you as an ally?"

"I haven't thought that through just yet. Never really thought I'd get past this stage. I won't ask you to start dressing in Lunari armor or start worshiping the moon or the likes. Your belief is your own, if you want it as yours. Yet I'll ask of you to come here, every now and then. So we can discuss things. See if we can unlock more of my memories, piece together the fragments."

William could certainly work with that. He was happy to hear that Diana was more reasonable that his colleagues, thought that would be too hard in the first place.

"Then I will return as I am needed. I usually will keep an open schedule at night for our meetings. Besides it not lie we can meet during the daytime anyway. There would be more than a few people wondering where I disappeared to during brad daylight."

She nodded. "And maybe you'll come to appreciate the night as much as me." She knew that might be too much to ask, but people never appreciated the night as is anyway. Perhaps he would at least appreciate the night a bit.

"Let's not push it too far," William joked. "On the serious side thought I think I might. The night is so serene sometimes. People aren't rushing about, the calls of birds have finally died away, the ight is when everything rests. Maybe that's why it has such an allure on people."

"And not some nitwits ascension ritual getting all attention. Makes me sick that they think it'll set them closer to gods." She shook her head, not going there again. "Anyway. Here." She gave him a little cloth with the mark of the Lunari on it, along with a bang of her hair. "Reminder to not forget the promise."
