Lava Mountains photos by Lusika33
Do you ever see pictures of lava and think: “that doesn’t look so hot, what’s the big deal”? A group of intrepid Russian photographers must have had the same idea when they ventured to the volcanic complex of Tolbachnik on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Consisting of two active volcanoes Plosky and Ostry, the pair put on some impressive fireworks when it recently erupted in November, 2012, with the lava flow overtaking buildings 4 kilometers away. While some of the pictures are mesmerizing in their display of the raw plasma that burns inside the furnace of the earth, I was more amazed (and quite frankly, a little concerned) with the nonchalant photographers setting up cameras mere meters away from the molten swarm. The flickering lights of the cooling magma resembles a city at night and almost seems romantic in an imminent fiery destruction-type way.
So… I’ve been asked about my OC’s and that world and so forth… And i figured i could upload an old image and some background story…
Thousands of years ago there was a race that lived on a planet in a system, no one remembers.
This race had “powers”, telekinetic sort. Some could wield lightning, others fire etc…
But it was only the men who could tho.
The women of that race were treated much like what we see in fundamental Islamic cultures.
But the women of that race had this secret, a sort of connection between them. This connection made them able to bond emotionally. If a woman became sad or something like that, the women on the planet would feel it, and push their emotions on her, and their collective emotions would rise her spirits.
This race had a form of kings, called Masaf. They had 10 Masafs in total, and the Masaf title belonged to the most powerful of them.
One Masaf family had a daughter called Neila, who was to be married away to another man.
She didn’t want this and ran away… This however was looked upon as a terrible thing to do, dishonor to family and name. Now her father loved her, but he was a Masaf first and felt forced to hunt her down and kill her to save the honor of the family and the “kingdom”.
He did find her, but as he forced his blade through her after some sappy talks… =P
Neila lied her hands on him, and in some way or another forced the connection onto him, which sort of lead to this domino effect opening the connection to everyone.
This had big repercussions as men now could feel what women felt etc. (They can’t really tell who is feeling what, but yeah..)
This lead to 3 factions, what is “now known” as Ferrians, Agelians and Ultiers (Vultures).
Agelians: wanted to stop using the connection but change the treatment of women. (1 Masaf family)
Ultiers: wanted to keep it mostly as it always had been. (7 Masaf Families)
Ferrians: wanted to keep the connection and teach women to use powers which previously thought they had none of. (2 Masaf families Including the Father of Neila.)
This lead to a war, in which Agelians were sort of on the side of Ultiers against Ferrians.
Eventually Agelians switched sides, but the planet they all lived on were getting devastated Which lead to a peace treaty, which meant all abandoned the planet in search of new worlds to live on. All going separate ways.
After years had passed, and all of them establishing new worlds two of them known (Agelian’s and Ferrian’s) The Ultiers attacked Ferrian’s new home Ylem.
They had never really forgiven them for how things ended up. But Agelians came to the Ferrian’s aid and forced the Ulterians out of known space.
Much of this history has been buried though the millennia to the point that now most Ferrians don’t even know they are “related” to Agelians and Ultiers, as evolution made smaller changes on them all. And as for Ultiers, no one has really seen their face for thousands of years, but they have seen the Vultures.
Ultiers through thousands of years evolved to have none of the powers they previously had.
The source of their powers used to, like with Ferrians now, be shown on their skin. From the spine to the neck to the side of the face, almost blue crystal like growth, that produced the cells necessary.
While in Ultiers you can see what looks like hollowed scars where those crystal ought to be.
It’s assumed among the Ultiers that their powers are not entirely gone, as some of those crystals can still be found in small amount on the spine. They think it might give off a slight signal to the “connection”. And this in return is what fucks up the Vultures.
And Vultures are born (by two Ultiers) WITH the crystals, but they are rabid, they are not quite sentient.
Ultiers found out a way to use them rather then kill them off. They found a way to use this connection they still have to control them.
So what the Ultiers did was sit back, and unleash the Vultures on the galaxy.
They ravage planets, kill rape and eat people they come by. They are a plague, and spread fear to any man’s heart.
Ferrians developed to be rather xenophobic, their connection has made them rather peaceful among themselves. But anything that is not them, that does not share the connection is to be considered with suspicions. They look upon most races outside their own as beneath them.
It’s so bad that no other race is allowed to enter the solar system of theirs beyond the trading port on the outer planets.
While the Ferrians started off with two Masaf families, they are now one. As the one they have now outgrew the other in power rather much. But the other developed into something now known as the Fewyn. It’s a form of military/spy/mercenary thing.
The Fewyn family had a special gift which enabled them to awaken dormet cells in their body. Which made their skin rather dark. It also made their reflexes much faster, smell and hearing as well as sight much better.
This they used to train the best Ferrians in order to become a part of the Fewyn.
The previous head of the Masaf, is now the head of the Fewyn with the title 201, and leads the 200.
The head of the Fewyn now is called Jatekh.
Even so the Ferrians are in a way the galactic police. They are the main force that fights back the vultiers and patrol the outer rims of the galaxy.
Though there was one thing Ferrians allowed, and that was a research project where they collected animals from throughout the galaxy and mix-matched them and placed them on Myto within their solarsystem.
The Ferrians on Myto eventually grew apart from the rest culturally, the connection which is considered a law to be under is something they don’t want a part of anymore. Which is a reason you find more “Mythans” in the Fewyn then most other, as Fewyn are trained to fight and be on their own without the connection.
The leader of the 300, Zethymir 301 is highly looked up upon by the “Mythans”, as he can’t join the connection, and he deviates from Ferrians in that his hair is red and eye is blue. (Ferrians have black eyes and dark brown black hair.)
And they like him because Ferrians in general don’t. Because of his slight deviation of norm.
Anyways this is on Myto, with a random Ferrian “Mythan”, who has colored their hair..
“Save me from myself”
SCREAMING. WHY HAD I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS IDEA UNTIL NOW. WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN GIFSETS OF THIS BEFORE. I’M DEAD. I’M A FROZEN CORPSE.
(thor sequel where tilda swinton is loki’s ice giant wife sigyn, please??)
Wait, but why not have the snowqueen, a sorceress, be angrboda? Also, explains them both being Jotnar.
