sometimes, at the Shado’loran breakfast table…
In lieu of having to be at work tonight, I do not wish for Gentil the muse to miss out on Kylareth’s wedding! He will be there solo, as Darnath is out of town but this is the outfit he had made for himself! I apologize that I cannot actually be there, for I am scrambling to work as much as I can and only have two days off in this continuing three weeks. Please save a spot for him! He’s a quiet little thing so I hope this won’t be a silly request! I want to see screenshots of the wedding Missy!
asked, ""Could I ask, do you practice both Light and Shadow, or do you find yourself drawn to one magic than the other?""
Gentil finds himself drawn to the Light for the most part in his early years as Gentil. There is a very good reason for this:
As Shadow is not corrupt in and of itself, it makes the student of such have to delve deeper into the opposite force once you’ve studied the Light. In the most base essence as a Mun, I see Light as a projected power echo and Shadow as something that can absorb. While they can both be conjured and channeled, there is an intimacy that fluxes either way.
Shadow is not something Gentil started to learn until recently, because he has been afraid of the deeper places of his own mind for quite some time. I think those magic-users that are more comfortable with the hidden places of their own minds have an easier time with shadow than those like Gentil who run from their past.
I could go on for a long time with this but I don’t want to spam >.>
Anonymous asked, "What do you know about shadow magic? What about shadow priests?"
I know that the Shadow is a force like any other, and one often misunderstood by the Light and its fanatics. Do you know that in Quel’Thalas we call the Arcane ‘The Cloth that Weaves Itself’? All magics are one in truth. Shadow and Light are both part of that fabric, nothing more and nothing less. It takes strength of will and talent to commune with immaterial power of any kind.
As for those who wield the shadow, they are dangerous and useful. Aren’t we all? Some say they’re helplessly corrupted, lovers of darkness, servants of demons. Some say the same of me.
Either way, they go by many names.
asked, "∞ - How did you get into Tumblr?"
*points accusingly at Gentil* HIM! ALL HIS FAULT! FOREVER! Three years ago I joined Shadowsbane on Flynn, and he and Anadal and Darnath and a bunch of others all had tumblr. They finally convinced me to make one and I was terrified because OMG WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO READ MY WRITING AAAH.
And then Flynn blossomed in my head like a fucking tomato plant of tiny word sprouts, and I’ve never looked back or regretted it since!
asked, "I'm going to be silly and ship Sellion with Gentil. Now that's a whole lot of delicate elf."
That’s also very flattering but I think people underestimate Sellion and maybe even Gentil, too. I can’t speak for Gentil but I get the impression that he’s stronger and more resilient than you might think, and I know that Selly is. What I do think you’d get with that ship is a lot of anxiety and general annoyance along with far too many flowy robes, flowers and herbs and trinkets. You’d also really be loading the plate for Darnath because he would then have to deal with both of them good or bad.
I think Sellion and Gentil would make good fabric and notions shopping buddies but Selly’s constant motion maybe would wear on Gentil (he seems very serene, like he’s practicing stillness for some reason, Sellion is a little chaotic) and Gentil’s general loveliness would probably be a source of envy for Sellion after a while.
It’s a cute ship but I really think they’d mostly just irritate each other.
