    Of the Fall of Mardukth, and of the love of Lyranvais (The Whispering Void)

    In lost Zen-mu, which is no more, which was born of the songs of the Primordials when time itself was young, and the nascent titans warred against the shapelessness of that which now lies outside Creation, the flames of Cytherea, the Divine Ignition, burned away the dross of possibility to leave that which was desired by her and her kin. No longer did the other titans, barring of course Oramus, the Dragon Outside the World, dwell within the mind of the Divine Ignition, for they had learned the invention of wakefulness, and thus they lived and dreamed and played with eyes wide open, seeing the infinite possibility before them, and just as Cytherea, they disdained the infinite possibility to bring concrete visions into being.

    And such was Zen-mu shaped, and the drums of the Primordial beat into existence time such that the vicissitudes of the Wyld could not say 'that was never so' and make it so, for as long as the drums were played and the songs of Adrián, the River of Torments, sung, and the dreams dreamed, that which had happened had always happened. And from the changing outside of Zen-mu, the hordes came, but against the fires and ice and blades of Adrián, they fell, and she inflicted infinite torments against them for daring to assault the playground of the dreamers, and all was happy.

    And so it came to pass that the the Empyreal Chaos came to Zen-mu, his sister Cecelyne and him, and though none knew it, the Whispering Flame, too; the three conveyed across the vitriolic waters of Kimbery through the machinations of the Ultimate Darkness. And Mardukth, He Who Holds In Thrall, did protest against the presence of the Holy Tyrant, for in these lands he had been King, and Zen-mu had beat to his will and spoke his name to him, and he would not give that up easily. The Holy Tyrant and he did war, then, and their conflict was long and terrible, for the waters of Zen-mu did rise up against the Empyreal Chaos, and the earth pelt at his immaterial majesty and the fires of light burn ardent, and the winds themselves sought to convey him back across Kimbery, to stretch the unbounded sands of his sister, Cecelyne, such that the Holy Tyrant could never again return to Zen-mu.

    The Empyreal Chaos was contemptuous, and, flanked by his twin fetich souls, Ligier and Ruvelia, spoke two words. And Mardukth was afraid.

    Of the rest of the conflict, it is forbidden to speak. It is only permitted to be said that Mardukth was cast down, and the Empyreal Chaos became the Primordial King, and accepted the fealty of he who ruled in his place before. But one thing is not forbidden, though it is not remembered, and that is that Lyranvais, the Echoing Void, did watch this conflict, and she fell in love with the Holy Tyrant, with his power and his majesty and the way that all would kneel before him, and she longed for him, forsaking her impossible love for Gaia, who did not love her back, to take on an even more impossible mantle of desire, for that was in her nature.

    And, as was her nature, she said nothing, because she was afraid.

  2. Thus the Earthen-Scorpion wrote, and all trembled in despair and horror at what he crafted.

    Heh. It's in the style of the Legend of the Titans, which is in itself in the style of Lord Dunsany, who, yes, was a major inspiration for HPL.

    Some stylistic overlap is inevitable.

    But, no, the Dunsany stuff is actually more epic mythology, and so is this. This is deep background, for this crossover.

    My god, you have my full and undivided attention. The Primordial Origin Story was one of the finest bits of fluff in a spectacular origin. That you plan to do something with it is nothing short of divine inspiration.
  5. Once again EarthScorpian proves that he is an evil, crazy, and awesome bastard.

    Hey, something you wrote that isn't ND related.

    Yes, that is progress of a sort. Who knows, we might even see more AEE in the foreseeable future :p

    I'm not so sure. This could be yet another distraction.

    ... Well, as long as he writes, there is hope (or despair, whatever).

    Write this ES, and I shall give you a blowjob.
  12. don't you mean this?
  13. Jonen C

    Jonen C F.M.D.G.

    Well, true. Probably. I'd make an analogy about Pandora's box, and Hope being the last, and potentially most terrible of the evils unleashed, being the last thing to leave Man and all, but I would be rambling.

    Going from the title, there is only one appropriate response.

    Heh. Louise has, in a quite spectacular feat of summoning, just summoned Malfeas to be her familiar. And thanks to the surrender Oaths, all the Yozi are still inside him. Of course, the demons can still leave, and will, which means that Ligier/Kirche has just become my new OTP. And it's going to be hilarious when the Albion army is introduced to the King of the Yozi, and a little Charm called Demon Emperor Shintai.


    Don't worry, it's going to be not quite that bad. :drevil:

    I'd just like to make it clear that she has not summoned Malfeas. Nor any of the other Yozi. Even if She Who Lives In Her Name is already in this world, where her jouten goes by the name of "Tabitha". :D

    And, anyway, nothing more is getting written for this until the next AEE chapter is done, which stands at 14,054 words.

    Whoever this familiar is just has to know Impervious Primacy Mantle ;)

    At first I thought it was going to be a GSP (and thus, hilarious). Now I'm not sure if the familiar isn't going to be Ligier... and thus, hilarious. :p

    Valiran A safe place.

    Even if it is a Green Sun Prince, I can only imagine what their reaction will be when they discover they're in another dimension/universe.

    It's not really hard. They're Exalted, albeit twisted versions. They will either try to have sex with it, destroy it or enslave it. :p
  20. EarthScorpion

    Even better. They're essentially newborn Yozi, as well as Exalted. And the Primordials are the ones that made Creation through lesbian, possibly underage, incest (oh, Cytherea and Gaia), and who include Isidoros and Srozeny, who define the term "Titanically Gay".

    There are whole new levels of sexing, destruction, and enslavement (often at the same time, and in new, fun, combinations) which the Green Sun Princes will be able to bring to Creation. :D
  21. Just think of the Heretic Charms that the GSP will be able to create.

    Or to be really weird : she gets a premonition of what she's about to summon and botches the ritual because of that. Later that night, having failed even the summoning ritual and thus any hope of being taken seriously her summon meets up with her anyway and makes an offer...

    EarthScorpion Fell on His Sword

    Ho ho ho. Now that the AEE Chapter is up... well, there is a copy of Games of Divinity calling to me.

    Ah. Malfeas really is the coolest hell in any fantasy I've ever come across.

    Hehe. We still need a full Solar Exalted in a crossover.

    Valiran A safe place.

    I'm working on it, but a combination of spending time with family on the holidays and college starting soon has not left me with a lot of free time.
