    I just recently happened upon this, and read it from start to finish. I almost wish I had found this sooner, since it's awesome. I also feel the urge to write a fanfic story.

    Let me be the first to welcome you to Silver's awestome story and all the awesome people in the playground who star in it.

    Aargh, the suspension is killing me. Not only that I'm wating for the new chapters as always, there might even be a possibility of my character appearing. But I won't find out for the next 3-4 chapters because that's what I estimate it will at the very least take for Mordokai to return.

    Paladin Academy: Chapter 2: Part 4
    -Cast-
    Kurama
    Lix
    Penny

    Spoiler
    Show
    The rays of sun beat down upon the ground unhindered. There was not a single cloud in the sky to give temporary relief to those working hard down below. All across the ruined training grounds, paladins were busy moving wood and stone to repair the ruined gate and wall destroyed during the demon invasion. Each paladin was cursing the hot weather as their white garments were soaked with sweat.

    Kurama however was the only one among the paladins who was perfectly dry. He felt entirely comfortable, as if the hot sun didn't exist. He felt the crystal's aura wash over him, keeping him cool in the heat. He didn't have to think about it at all. It was as if the crystal was naturally extending itself to keep him from getting too hot. He wondered if this is how a passive ability worked.

    He set down a large, crudely cut slab of stone and then proceeded to gather the next load. Halfway there however, he caught sight of someone not working, but sitting on some material out of the way. Curious as to what they were doing, he changed his course over to this individual.
    "Hey Lix. What are you doing here?"

    Lix appeared like the other paladins. Slightly red and sweating from the heat. However, Kurama could tell that the sweat was evaporating faster than normal, leaving her clothes a lot drier then any of the others. When Lix turned around, he could instantly tell something was upsetting her.
    "Oh. Its you!"

    Kurama hesitated for a moment. Lix's eyes had such a venomous look, anyone would've assumed she was anxious for a fight. He gathered himself and tried to cool down the conversation.
    "What's wrong? Are you okay?"

    Lix turned her back to Kurama again. He could hear the badly concealed anger in her voice.
    "W-What do you mean 'What's wrong'? I'm just fine. Now leave me alone!"

    Kurama took a hesitant step forward.
    "Lix, you can't keep yourself bottled up like this."

    "Like I'm going to open up to you!"
    She turned around again, glaring at Kurama.
    "After all, you're with 'HER' all the way! Always protecting your perfect princess aren't you?! Perfect murderer that is!"

    It probably would've take light itself about twice as long to figure out what she was talking about as it took Kurama.
    "Oh come- You really- I mean you can't-"
    He stopped. He realized that he knew the answer already to all those questions.
    "Okay, Lix. Look, you have to look at the fact that Grim himself was the beacon allowing the demons to come to our world. You have to realize from this that he was a bad guy."

    Lix stood up. What little sweat that remained in her clothes vanished with a puff of steam.
    "No! I don't care what you guys say! There has to be something else to it! I just know it!"

    Kurama could not believe what he was hearing. How could Lix be so blind?
    "What other possible thing could justify Grim's actions?! How could you still think that?!"

    "I don't know what it could be, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist! Grim couldn't have been trying to destroy everything! I...I just know it..."

    Kurama blinked. Lix's anger seemed to have been forgotten among the last statement she uttered. He almost didn't hear what she said as she practically whispered that last bit. She wasn't looking at him anymore, but down at her feet. He could swear he almost saw her close to tears. He took a deep calming breath before speaking again. He could not remove the contempt from his voice however.
    "It doesn't mean that a reason has to exist though."

    Lix's eyes were back up to Kurama, anger obvious behind the half tears that had formed. Before anything else could happen, a slightly cheery voice called out to them.
    "Hey! Kurama! Did you hear?!"
    Kurama did not look away from Lix as he heard Penny run up to them.
    "Hey, hey! Kurama! Mordokai's leaving! Another person is going to become a paladin. Now Viola will no longer be the 'New Girl'. Isn't that great?"
    She looked back and forth from Kurama and Lix.
    "Is something wrong?"

    It was Lix that answered her.
    "No. Nothing is wrong."
    She turned with a last glaring look at Kurama and walks away. Kurama glares back at her. He felt like he knew why Lix was acting so close-minded. But he just couldn't put his finger on it.

    His thought was interrupted as Penny pulled at his sleeve.
    "Come on. Rabbit is going to notice if were not working."

    Kurama reluctantly turned around.
    "Yeah... Okay."

    Another enjoyable read, nice to see some dissent among the Paladins, not in an evil way- but it adds a bit of conflict which makes things more interesting. I like it!

    Long overdue, but I hope you'll like it.

    The Fall of the Academy

    Spoiler
    Show
    Everyone, I have awful news. Lix Lorn has passed away. In honor of this, all training exercises will be canceled today and

    Dead? I beg to differ Mordokai.

    The dining hall was filled with gasps as everyone turned to the main doorway, where a pale Lix stood, wearing little more than her infirmary sheet.

    Lix? This is a miracle! How on earth

    Don't try to sound innocent Mordokai! I know the truth, the truth about you, Grim, and Viola.

    What?

    Grim was right! Mordokai has been holding us back, afraid we will be able to reach his level of power. Grim was onto him, and forced us to fight in order to make us stronger. Look at the the most powerful paladins here, all of them faced enemies stronger than them and unlocked new power because of it. Grim was going to knock down your control over the paladins, so you sent your assassin Viola to eliminate him!

    Lix! This is nonsense!

    Quiet you. Bitterness penetrated her voice. Hear me my fellow paladins, I have come to complete Grim's vision. A world where we are not held back but take what we desire! A world where we are free to reach are true potential! But we never will as long as we allow him to enslave us.

    The paladins who fought at the demon invasion and saw what Grim had done knew better. But many new paladins had arrived over the years, impatient, who saw how powerful some paladins were but had yet to learn the discipline to attain it. Lix had been sowing discord for years, and her work had not been in vain. The hall was filled with murmuring voices, and Lix quickly found a minority ready to reap the rewards without sowing the seed.

    Lix, please. You are still sick, we need to get you to Blue and see if he can help you...

    I WILL NOT BE SILENCED!!

    Flames erupted at Nil, knocking him back and burning at his face. Mordokai would not allow anymore of this, corrupting the impressionable and outright attempted murder. A flash of light blasting from his feet, he rocketed towards Lix, only to see her hold up a familiar looking crystal.

    No...

    A sphere of darkness blinded everyone but Lix in the room, their limbs locked in place by powers never before seen, and Mordokai's gasp of pain was heard by all.

    As the darkness receded, Lix stood there blood driping from her mouth. A cloak of darkness surrounded her body body as two dark, miasma wings erupted from her back. Her red eyes looked at the lifeless corpse of Grandpaladin.

    Mordokai the Light-Bringer was slain.
    …................................................. .................................................. .........

    The next moments seemed to pass in slow motion, as if a dream slowly changed into a nightmare that would not end. A vortex of flame and darkness surrounded Lix before the elite paladins could strike her down for her murder. Out of nowhere her voice erupted from everywhere at once, chilling words filling the room.

    Paladins, you have two choices-join the armies of Grim, or die. If you have not submitted to me in one hour, you shall suffer the fate of Mordokai the Tyrant.

    Flames filled the room, sending paladins running off in all directions. Some were glad to join the new regime, while others were cowed into submission. Trained paladins new better, and begin to hunt Lix down before she could destroy the academy, but the new recruits had no training and were being turn between the commanders of the two sides.

    While all seemed lost, a loud yet reassuring voice could be heard through the the great hall.

    Paladins, stay calm.

    Those who could tried to find refuge in the great hall, which had barricaded its doors to prevent Blackguards from slaying those weaker than themselves. Elder paladins easily trounched the villians and had guided young recruits there in order to keep them safe, and it had quickly become the last fortress of those who held true to the call of the paladin.

    Nil stood on a table, Blue behind him. Nil's face was scarred, but his powers had restored what would have killed a normal man.

    Lix has become something beyond us. Grim single handedly defeated most of the academy before, but even he could not slay Mordokai. Lix is a traitor, and I feel safe to say no longer human. We must evacuate.

    Voices rose in protest, but a wave of soothing aura removed the anger, fear, and hatred Mordokai's death had caused.

    We must protect the younger paladins. Those who are combat trained I want divided into two groups. One will escort the recruits out of the academy and fend off the Blackguards. The rest will stay with me, and we will make our last stand. Lix might be more powerful than Grim, but we are far stronger now then we were then. We must neutralize this threat now before she grows stronger.

    Hope rose in the ranks of the remaining paladins as they were sorted into who would be best in attacking Lix and who could train and raise the new recruits into full fledged paladins capable of protecting the world.

    Blue, I especially want you to go with them. They need you more than we do.

    …................................................. .................................................. .
    Viola, before we fight her, I want you to know I love you

    Oh Kurama,

    Viola drew him in for a kiss, only for Kurama's consciousness to fade away from Viola's punch to his gut. As he faded out, he heard her last words

    I love you

    …...............................

    What happened? Did they.....

    Kurama saw a group of his friends around him, and from the look on their faces he felt apiece of his soul fracture,only for him to be heard saying

    not again.. no..

    Some paladins had opted to stay with the recruits in the mountains to train them and keep them away from Lix's influence, while others would try to actively bring an end to her reign.

    .............................
    Viola why...

    No...no


    Kurama sat up, rubbing ice crystals away from his eye, looking at the dark sky above him. Why Viola? We could have worked together to stop her. We could have fought together.

    Kurama looked at his companions, Blue in a meditative pose, tranquil as always. Do wizards sleep? Blue was an enigma, but after spending so much time traveling with him Kurama believed he was just as much a paladin as any of those who fought in the last stand.

    Bis was seated on a stone, his backed turned to Kurama as he scoured the world for any possible threat. Bis had been vital to their survival, giving them an edge over the vampires everywhere they went. Kurama stayed as silent as possible, not wanting Bis to know the pain he was feeling.

    Kurama.

    …....

    I know you are awake. I can hear you breathe.

    Damn.

    I also hear you when you talk in your sleep.

    Kurama's eyes widened but before he could say anything Bis cut him off.

    She told me something before she went off to fight Lix. She wanted you to know something, but wanted me to wait until the right time. I can't imagine a better time.

    Bis's mind went back to that day as Viola gave Kurama to him to take with the others. She looked him dead in the eye, aware that she might never see him again.

    The world needs him Bis. When the world is surrounded by darkness, they'll need a rally point. A leader. A hero. Take care of him. Please.

    Bis repeated this word for word, and Kurama sat there, his mourning taking a new form. A purpose to honor her death.

    A thin layer of ice firmly surrounded his remaining eye now, but he knew what he had to do. Blue had been making a plan that would finally put an end to this nightmare.

    Lix had killed the sun, the light.

    They would bring it back.

    She looked back and forth from Kurama and Lix.
    "Is something wrong?"

    It was Lix that answered her.
    "No. Nothing is wrong."
    She turned with a last glaring look at Kurama and walks away.Kurama glares back at her. He felt like he knew why Lix was acting so close-minded. But he just couldn't put his finger on it.

    "Come on. Rabbit's going to notice if were not working."

    Kurama reluctantly turned around.
    "Ya... Okay."
    I'm sure no one will turning evil or killing anyone in their sleep any time soon.

    You think slivers are evil? Clearly you have never faced Faeries.

    And now we're talking Magic:The Gathering? I seriously hadn't anticipated that.

    Point taken.

    To be fair though, I haven't actually gotten to use that faerie deck. And don't think I didn't see that stunt with the Psychic Sliver, Ms. I-have-56-Plus-Life.

    Psionic. And the difference is thus: Faeries were a metagame dominating deck. I INVENTED mine. From scratch.

    ...
    Can we have a paladin who summons slivers?

    Can I make up my elite army with slivers?

    "It doesn't think. It doesn't feel.

    I felt a liking to artifact creatures. Unfortunately my wallet kept me from actually acquiring enough to make an artifact deck or keep up with magic.

    Anyways, I liked your story Nil. However, the part seemed a little... rushed. It was like, "Lix is dead" "No I'm not" "Nevermind, no she's not" "I'm killing you're face" "She's killing our face".

    When you come to something dramatic, don't be afriad of dragging it out by adding details and a sense of time passing. Keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

    Ah. To be even more fair, I never actually played Magic until the PbP. I don't own any RL cards. So I have no idea what the metagame was ever like, except for the recent Artifact Abuse metagame.

    As for my Faeries, I did create that deck from scratch (and Gatherer). I guess I did it fairly well, since everyone refuses to play against it.

    Ya. I mean, you really could drag out a fight scene. Think of it as you watching TV instead of reading a book. I try to model my story after books I read where I don't think I ever "Read" a single word. It was pretty much nothing but moving scenes going on in my head while my eyes look at the words. Thats how I mostly "Read". By watching TV.
