An inverted version of my earlier Human Transmutation Circle piece.
I did this because I feel it makes the piece appear more as it would on the FMA show.

Story of a Night Elf 8Story of a Night Elf 8
For a short time period everything returned to normal. I did my warrior jobs, Vynom ran her healing practice, and we were both happy. I was no longer within the favor of the town elders, and they made it known throughout Dolanaar. I thought that this would make our life hard, but it did not. I had built up a good reputation with the townspeople through all of the quests that I had done for them. Vynom had built up an even better reputation from her healing of their many ailments. We could have a good life in Dolanaar, with or without the support of the town elders.
I soon came to realize that even though the town elders were not favorable of myself and my ways, it did not mean that they would still not try to use me to do whatever they needed to have done. One day I was once again approached by the messenger of the town elders as I entered Dolanaar, "The elders have summoned you once again, Vyper," she s
Story of a Night Elf 2 Now in the early days of my training I needed ways to make money, and ways to perfect my skill. I did this by accepting odd jobs around town that more seasoned warriors were not likely to take. I ran messages for people, killed animals that were out of control, and even went out on a couple of search and rescue missions for lost townspeople. This led to me having a few minor injuries, as it did with most warrior trainees, and this gave Vynom several chances to practice on me. I would not receive any major injuries until the day I went out searching for the lost researcher, the day that I came across the spiders.
The research was being done outside of a cave that was known to house a large number of poisonous spiders. I was able to fight my way to the cave, but when I got there, I encountered a problem. The researcher had been bitten by one of the spiders, and was now paralyzed because of it. I would be able to carry him back t
Story of a Night Elf 4The next day we got out of bed really early, not that we had really slept that much anyway ! The first place that we went to was to her family hut in the medical compound of our little village. From there the day long celebration just seemed to sweep us all over the small village. From her family hut, to my mothers small hut, from my mother's hut to extended family huts, from these huts into the general population of the medical compound area, and finally out into the town as a whole. News spread quickly, and everybody wanted to celebrate with us.
The next days, and weeks were spent in a great planning session for everybody in our village. We had decided to have our actually wedding in the village, and this was unusual as most couple opted to have their ceremonies in one of the bigger towns or cities of the area. This meant that our wedding would be one of the bigger celebrations that our little village had seen in awhile. While we had meant it to be a small ceremony, very soon everybo
Story of a Night Elf 5Our days we're filled with exploration, and our nights were spent exploring our physical love for each other.
Our days would range from spending time on the beach outside our cottage, to exploring the forests that were just a bit deeper inland. From the forests we would go into the mountains, and beyond them we would go to the land that now teeming with the memory of our ancestors, we did not threaten their rest, and they did not threaten our exploration. One day we even used our full day to explore as far as Astranaar. We decided that one day we would retire to this area. The surrounding lands were just filled with so much awe inspiring beauty.
Our nights were spent exploring another type of beauty, the beauty of our love, and it's psychical manifestation. We spent time together in every place in the cottage that we could think of, the bed and the hot tub being our two favorite places indoors. I even managed to get Vynom to come explore or physical love for each other outside. We spen
Story of a Night Elf 3 I caught up to the rest of the trainees in my warrior training class, and graduated with them on time. Vynom also had her healer graduation on the same day. We celebrated our graduations with a big celebration of the whole town, and then we went to our place and had a small private celebration with just the two of us. We still kept our celebration short, because we both knew that we were expected to start our new jobs the next morning.
We awoke the next morning and had a great breakfast together before heading to our new jobs. I walked Vynom to the town healing compound, and then I went to find the nearest posting board to see if any warrior services were needed. I was happy to be doing this, and the town was even happier that I was doing this. Most warriors headed out to the bigger towns to find work, because small towns did not need warriors all that often. I was staying in town because Vynom wanted to stay, and I had no pro
Story of a Night Elf 7Story of a Night Elf 7
It is funny how a chance encounter with ay random being can then tie that being to you in many important ways. Somebody that you do something for, and have no plans of ever having any interaction with again, then becomes part of your life. For good, or for evil, you just can never seem to get away from this being again. This is how it was between myself, and Zenn Foulhoof. This is the story of how we first met.
One day I was walking the road between the new house and Dolanaar, when out from behind a tree stepped a Satyr. Now I was a bit leery of this creature, because I had never heard anything but bad stories of his kind, but I was also intrigued due to never having seen one of his kind. He called me over and asked if I could do a mission for me, and that he would pay me well. Being that I was going to look for work to do that day, I was willing to hear him out. All he requested of me was some silk, som
Damien's Time - The Great Battle 4 When Lucifer, once again, regained consciousness, he just sat where he was with his eyes closed as he let his mind and body realize what was happening around him. His back, and his head, were both in massive amounts of pain. He knew his back was in pain from being stabbed in the back by someone he had considered a friend, Michael. He guessed that his head was in pain from sustaining another blow when he fell to the ground from the stabbing. He hoped that Venus never found out about this latest injury to his head. He could also tell that he was not in his own camp this time. The voices were not of his supporters, but of those he knew to be supporting Jehovah. From the conversations that he could hear, it was not going good for their side in the battle. Jehovah had very few supporters left, and they were once again about to be overtaken by forces led by Mars. Lucifer would use this knowledge to his advantage and try to negotiate a surrender with them.
Damien's Time - The Great Battle 5 Lucifer laughed as he heard what Jehovah said, "Victory ?" he asked , "You claim that you are close to victory when your supporters abandon you, and Mars is close to capturing you ? How do you expect to claim victory when everything is going against you ?"
"That is quite simple," answered a very smug sounding Jehovah, "you see, it does not matter what my supporters are doing, and it does not matter what your troops are doing. I am about to claim victory, because you are about to offer me your full surrender."
Lucifer laughed even louder at Jehovah's latest response, " I think that you are beginning to lose your mind due to the stress of the battle, my old friend. Why exactly would I surrender to you when I am about to witness your defeat first hand ?"
"It's quite simple really," responded Jehovah, "I, unlike you, don't really care about the well being of this planet.
Damien's Time - The Great Battle 3 As Lucifer walked out onto the battlefield, he immediately saw that things were indeed going very well for his supporters. Everywhere that he saw individual skirmishes happening, his supporters seemed to be overcoming the best efforts of Jehovah's remaining supporters. As he watched, supporters of Jehovah would lose their individual skirmishes, and would then quietly leave the battlefield. At the rate things were going, Jehovah would soon have to surrender due to lack of support. Lucifer was glad to see this. The one thing at Lucifer could not see, no matter how long he looked, was Jehovah himself. Lucifer decided that he would have to find Mars, and get an official report of what was happening within the field of battle. If Jehovah truly could not be found, this battle needed to end.
Mars saw Lucifer, and called out to him as he approached, "Glad to see that your finally up and around," he said, "you had some of us
Damien's Time - Complete Surrender Lucifer switched his gaze back and forth between Uranus and Jehovah as he waited for something to happen. Uranus seemed to be going into a deep meditative state, but nothing seemed to be coming of it. Jehovah did nothing, he just stayed behind his podium with a small smirk upon his face. Lucifer continued to wait for something to happen, and for a time, nothing did. As Lucifer was beginning to gain confidence that what Jehovah had said truly was just a threat, he felt the Earth shake beneath his feet. Lucifer was shocked by this development, and once again checked the faces of Jehovah and Uranus to see how they were responding to what he had just felt. The smirk upon Jehovah's face had grown into a sinister grin. Uranus continued to stay in his meditative state. Lucifer then looked into the sky, and the moon did seem to look bigger in it. It seemed as if Jehovah and Uranus might actually be serious about what they said, but Lucifer still believe
Damien's Time - The Great Battle 2 Just when it looked like Lucifer had lost all hope at retaining control over the Earth, he heard a massive cry arise from over the horizon. There was a hesitation from the the people who were beating him, and then some of them ran off in the direction of where the cry had arisen. He did not know what was going on, but he was just appreciative of the fact that the beating he was taking was not as severe as it had been. Lucifer heard what he thought was fighting taking place all around him now, but he still could not see what was going on. It was then that he heard another cry sound out, and this one was much closer to him than the first had been. The remaining people that were beating him scattered, but Lucifer still would not see anything at this time. Lucifer would pass out before seeing anything at all.
When Lucifer regained consciousness, he could feel that he was being carried. He looked up at the one who was carrying him,
Damien's Time - The Blood Lust Grows The dreams returned during Lilith's next period of sleep. They started with her defiance of Adam and Jehovah in Eden, leading to her banishment from Eden, then leading to the rage building up inside of her and triggering the blood lust dream. That smell, it was all about that smell. The smell seemed stronger in the dream than it had last time. It made her salivate, it made her stomach rumble, it caused her pain that she could not find it. With everything that this smell caused, Lilith was sure that it would lead her to whatever it was that would satisfy her craving. The dream lasted longer than it had the night before, and Lilith was sure that she was getting closer to the source of the smell, but alas she would awake again before finally finding it. It was not yet time for her make this discovery.
While the dreams did intrigue Lilith, and she desperately wanted to know where the smell would end up leading her, she had more pr
Damien's Time - Complete Surrender 2 "What is that you just said ?" Jehovah asked with an evil smile. "You say that you will do whatever I want as long as I stop the carnage below ? I guess that is good enough for me. Uranus ! Stop the destruction of the Earth ! Lucifer has given us his complete surrender !"
Uranus finally came out of his trance for the first time since he had started to pull the Earth's moon towards the battle below. Uranus did not really seem to want to stop doing what he was doing, but he also seemed to have complete faith in Jehovah, so he did what he was told. Uranus had been brought to the point of complete exhaustion while drawing the two planetary bodies into one another, but he still had enough energy to sneer at Lucifer as his mission was coming to a close. "I told you that I would have my revenge, and now I have," he said to Lucifer, "Now I hope that Jehovah will show you no mercy when you negotiate your surrender to him."
Damien's Time - The Blood Lust Rages Lilith woke up in a cold sweat, the blood lust was raging inside of her, and she needed to do something to quench it right away. She quickly went towards where she had left her supply of meat, but stopped before she came to it. It was gone ! All of the deer meat that she had brought with her was gone ! In the place where the meat had been were several sets of fresh tracks, and a scent that she had smelled recently. It was the scent of wolves, just like she had smelled in her dream. So the scent had not just been in her dream, she had actually been smelling it in real life. Lilith could still smell the path the wolves had left by, and thought that she could follow it to gain revenge against the wolves, but decided that it would probably take too much time to do so. Right now Lilith needed to make a fresh kill, she needed to find a way to feed the blood lust.
Lilith was still aware enough of her situation to come to o
Damien's Time - Banishment After going back to his supporters to let them know that the Earth was now theirs, and that they could divide up everything outside of the Garden of Eden, Jehovah came back to the creators of the Earth with one last thing to say to them.
"I have one last thing that I want to hear from all of you," he said to all of them, "This isn't so much a demand, as it is a request, but the fulfillment of this request will decide how peaceful things will be for you in the new regime that I am starting."
Lucifer reluctantly answered for all of the creators, "Tell us what it is that you request from us," he said, "We would appreciate the chance to live peacefully, as we always have."
"One of the reasons that all of this started was my want to be accepted as an equal to the great creators of the Earth," said Jehovah with a sneer, "If you wold have accepted my creation of perfection a
