Creation Story of Genea
First there was Chaos, and from this Chaos formed a soul who came to call herself Genea. Genea's first action was to order time to make sense of the Chaos in which she lived. With time separated and put into order, Chaos dissolved. It fell apart into discrete events separated by time, and the void in which they took place.
Genea was not quite happy. She had made sense of the Chaos and in doing so broken it. The discovery was satisfying, but left the world a boring place, so Genea shaped space and created a home for herself. She took inspiration from her dreams and called it Somnis. It showed great diversity, with places that were unimaginably beautiful and others that were torturously horrifying. For a while, Genea marveled at her creation. She settled in the unimaginably beautiful, but kept the torturously horrifying for when she needed contrast and variety.

Anachronist
He steps out of the train, breathing. They said it would disintegrate a man, but he thought from the beginning it was nonsense. He's expecting a crowd of astonished onlookers, but the crowd he sees is slowly flowing away, the people in it pushing him and going around. They are all queerly dressed, and most everyone's attention is focused on small items in their hands. Some have laces attached to their ears and stretching from there to the hems of their shirts.
A sound comes through, disembodied, from somewhere above, alerting him of a certain train arriving soon on a certain track. But when he looks up, there is no one speaking. Everyone around him acts as if it's not there, and he worries he's losing his mind. He stops a young man and asks him if he heard that too.
"Of course," the young man answers.
"What was that?" He asks.
"Calm down, mate, it's just an announcement." The young man looks up at a clock and walks away hurriedly, muttering obscenities.
He follows the young man, out th

No. Not in the "I only produce shit" way. Not in the "I'm beating myself up about what I make" way. But in the "I don't know how to make myself do the things I plan to do" way. Almost a month ago I said on tumblr that I'd be writing a series of one shots about how one of my characters accumulated her collection of Daedric artifacts.

Yet here we are, 23 days later, and I only have the 580 words I wrote on the first day or two of that. What I have written, however, is a creation myth for a religion in my own world and a ramble about the nature of magic that began with the words "I really don't know"

And while I didn't know what the hell I was doing at the beginning of that magic ramble, I'm happy with the result. And I'm happy with the creation myth that I made.

I'm just a bit mad that I end up procrastinating on my hobby by doing different things in my hobby. Or with other hobbies because Mass Effect Andromeda also has a lot to do with me not writing :P
But that's such a weird thing to happen, but apparently it's happening.

But I'm not giving up writing. Don't you dare think that. I fucking love it. And I want to eventually make a living doing it. So it's probably a good thing that I've thought more about Valkyrie than Elder Scrolls in the last month. But I don't want to just create my own stuff. I have fanfics going on, I have an idea for a fanfic that really only works if it's Elder Scrolls. Sure, the story could be put into a different universe, but it wouldn't be the same. There are demographic details and mystical details and linguistic details that only work in certain contexts, and those are what it's really based on, the story is just what happens in that context with those details.

Anyway now I'm really getting off the rails again, I'll just publish this here before I stray light years away from my original thought.

I write Elder Scrolls fanfics and some stuff in my own world (for which nothing has been published as of yet). I'm slowed down a lot by school stuff and my own bad tendency to procrastinate.

Steel and Shadow - Chapter 011
So it's been a while, but nowhere near as bad as the military hiatus :P
I'm also working on another thing that isn't chapter-based, but a series of short stories that happen at scattered times during Tamriel's history. And those I'll be posting as they get ready, since they're not chapters. They're a bit more difficult though, since they don't have as much context as chapter-based things. I can't say which one's next though, chapter 12 or a short story, but we'll see.

First there was Chaos, and from this Chaos formed a soul who came to call herself Genea. Genea's first action was to order time to make sense of the Chaos in which she lived. With time separated and put into order, Chaos dissolved. It fell apart into discrete events separated by time, and the void in which they took place.

Genea was not quite happy. She had made sense of the Chaos and in doing so broken it. The discovery was satisfying, but left the world a boring place, so Genea shaped space and created a home for herself. She took inspiration from her dreams and called it Somnis. It showed great diversity, with places that were unimaginably beautiful and others that were torturously horrifying. For a while, Genea marveled at her creation. She settled in the unimaginably beautiful, but kept the torturously horrifying for when she needed contrast and variety.

Eventually, she grew bored of this too. Nothing happened there. But the events in the rest of the world were too destructive, and she feared taking them into her home. She could make her own events, but those were too predictable and lacked excitement. Thus Genea decided she needed more souls to accompany her. At first she gave birth to twins, Lux and Virid.

As Lux and Virid grew, they shaped Somnis.

Lux personified light, warmth, and fire. She made the sun to provide light and warmth to Somnis. She set fires to the horrifying to make it too hot, too bright, and blackened it with smoke and soot.

Virid personified earth and virility. He filled the beautiful with green, and in the light of Lux it was magnificent. In the horrifying he put the murk, which strengthened the smoke and soot from Lux's fires and made the space intolerable and poisonous.

Genea was happy, but there came a time when Lux and Virid were creating no more. They simply were, and there were no new events. So it was that Genea came to give birth to a new set of twins, Akva and Aeris, whose play created more new things.

Akva personified water, fluidity, and change. She took time from the void outside and added it to Somnis. This created day and night, seasons, and weather, which spread the variety of Somnis across time, and Lux made stars to light the night. She then made streams and lakes, which beautified the beautiful and spread pollution in the horrifying. Her creation allowed the green of Virid to grow. It took on new shapes and sizes, increasing the variety and beauty. And in the horrifying, the murk spread and further fueled the fires lit there by Lux.

Aeris personified air, presence, and magic. He filled the rest of the space in Somnis with a substance that moved the creations of Virid in awe-inspiring patterns. This substance moved weather and made it more varied. Together with Akva's streams it spawned great storms in the borders between the beautiful and the horrifying, which showed magnificent cloud shapes and flashes of lightning on one side, and on the other presented a dangerous obstacle that could not be conquered. In the horrible it fed the fires directly and mixed with the smoke to better spread the poison.

Together they had made Somnis even more varied, but Genea grew bored of this as well. She could not make exciting events, the world outside had only destructive events, and her children could not make events at all. So her children decided to make a new world. One in which would have events. They took their own space, their own time, and molded it into a world much like Somnis. Once thet had this copy, they introduced events from the outside. This ripped their world apart and made brief Chaos which dissolved back into the void.

They tried again. They created another world identical to Somnis, to which they introduced events. This time they were smaller and fewer. Again they failed, and the Chaos of the collision dissolved. A third time they tried, and a third time the introduction of events caused Chaos and the eventual dissolution of their creation.
They tried a fourth time, and added only one event, which was the smallest they could find. Again the world was turned into Chaos. Aeris mixed magic into the cloud of Chaos to reverse the event and turn the Chaos back into a world. But the result was a world different from the one they had before the event. It had no unimaginably beautiful, and it had no torturously horrifying. The two had blended together in the Chaos, and the world before them was something in between. Some places were more one than the other, but the contrast was much less present.

This new median world intrigued Genea's children. They explored it for a while, and saw that nothing was how they had ordered it originally. The waters and lands were arranged in a new way, the poison and fire had been stored underground to be sometimes released, and Virid's creations had changed and intermingled. To fit this new format of less extreme extremes, Akva wished to brighten the night to even out time as well as space. So she brought a new event, and they used that to blend the world anew, except during this mixing, Virid took pieces of the earth from the Chaos to form a smaller world. While Aeris worked with magic, Lux made the new world bright, and Akva set it to motion around the world. They called the bright world the moon, and the median world they called Earth.

While exploring the newly formed Earth, Genea's children found that during the last period of Chaos, two of Virid's creatures had developed the ability to create events. These events were small, they were not always destructive, and they often worked against Chaos. A handful of them had also taken magic, including the two that could create events. It did not always show, but when it did, these individuals were capable of creating larger events, for better or for worse.

When they presented this world to Genea, she was delighted. She watched the creatures and their little events come and go, but their lack of passion was evident, and she needed to fix that. She breathed souls into them, and made it a part of them. With this, the creation was finally ready, and elves and humans with the ability and passion to create events became the rulers of that world.

These souls, at the moment of death, are drawn to Somnis, from whence they originated. Genea finds them interesting, and allows them in. She decides a place for everyone, in the beautiful or the horrifying, according to the extreme toward which their actions in life moved the world.
Creation Story of Genea
I've been watching Crash Course Mythology and it inspired me to write a creation myth for one of the two largest religions that will dominate Belagris.
Unfortunately, this is for the one that might not be that important in Valkyrie, and I don't know if it'll make any significant appearance. The other one will have more of an effect, and it'll be less Earth-Mother and more Sky Father. I may or may not write the other one out.
