Zenith – Part 10

Emily reached out for that comfortable feeling that she often brushed against. She found it instinctively. But it wasn’t just a comfortable state of mind. It was her mind. “Violet. I– I don’t know what to say.” Violet’s soothing voice rippled from the back of Emily’s head. “Don’t worry. We’ve been talking for two months. […]

Zenith – Part 9

“Mind-space is a bizarre place. Physics change by the second. Up is down, and left, but not right… Yet. Mathematics don’t add up. Intent permeates the skin and shakes your bones. Words have power in the physical world, but in mind-space emotion is king. “When you are in your own mind-space, everything is familiar. But […]

Zenith – Part 8

When Emily woke up the next day she was ready to take on the world. At least once a week she had a dream much like that one that left her feeling more rejuvenated than she had any right to be. Ged had a point I guess, Emily thought as she took her morning shower, […]

“Seriously?” Emily was standing next to Violet staring at the door. “Yeah, Just focus on your apartment as you open the door. If you want you could ask it nicely. That helped me early on.” Violet paused. “I admit it sounds stupid out loud.” Emily glanced at Violet wondering if this was some cruel joke. […]

Zenith – Part 4

Standing in front of Emily was a house. It didn’t look all that out of place. She was still in the park blocks, she could see Portland around her, but everything past the house looked a little blurry. Emily had never heard of a house being located anywhere near here, and with this location it […]

Zenith – Part 3

Emily didn’t often maintain plans for her weekends. This weekend was no different. She knew studying would take up some of her time, but prefered to act as time went rather than trying to create structure in her life. Because of this freedom, Emily decided to spend her evening trying to understand what she felt […]

Zenith – Part 2

“Em, what happened to your hands!” Emily snapped out of the daze she was in and returned to the table. While she never really had many strong friends, she was sitting with three other students mostly held together by the high level math classes they were all taking. Finals were coming up and so many […]

Zenith – Part 1

Emily Davidson didn’t have a dramatic awakening. Many mages were snapped awake by death or destruction. For Emily one day she was living a normal college life and the next she was complaining about undersized coffee cups. Just like many mornings before she left home and stopped at the corner coffee shop to get her […]
