  1. "Maybe. You're right, I guess all we can do is wait." Iris stood up. "But for now, I am starving. Got any food left over?"
  2. Iris suddenly began to feel outraged again. "Ugh I HATE not knowing now. Was that me? I probably won't know because most people that were there were drugged and memory wiped! What is going on with my head? What else am I forgetting!" (A lot, buddy. You forgot a lot of things.)
  3. "I think this all had something to do with that pill 'young me' took. In my vision, the Fire Kingdom guard said that they had to eradicate all the elementalists, but he didn't kill most of them. What if the pill they forced the teachers and kids to take was some kind of amnesia drug manufactured to make all elementalists forget how to use their powers and live normal lives. That would explain why I can't remember anything, and why I can't use water magic if that was me."
  4. Iris stared at Breeze, and then Vivus, and then Breeze, and then Vivus again. "300 years!?! Oh god this day just keeps getting even more confusing. And just when I thought I'd made sense of everything." Iris wiped his forehead with his sleeve.
  5. Iris shrugged. "Maybe." However, suddenly things started to make sense... Iris remembered back to his vision. The pill... oh my god the pill... Iris was lost in his thoughts as things suddenly began to fit together. "Lynx, Vivus I th-" Iris began, but Iris was interrupted by Breeze. "SINCE WHEN COULD THE DOG TALK?!?" Iris yelped and backed away.
  6. Iris shrugged. "Maybe. I don't know. It is really weird though; when I was having that vision, the experiences that those kids were going through felt... familiar, like I was having deja vu or something like that. But I never went to the academy, I lived in the Water Kingdom for my entire life until my family left me when I was 14 and I traveled to Clearwater to start a new life."
  7. "Who though? I've been learning fire magic since I arrived in Clearwater when I was 12."
  8. Iris twiddled his thumbs like he did whenever he was anxious. "But then why can't I remember that part of my childhood if it was me? And why am I a fire elementalist instead of a water elementalist?"
  9. "But if they are true... then why was young me at the Academy learning water magic? And then that means... Lockwood is Kamado's grandson. And why have these visions just started? Is this what the magic fire lady did to me? Give me visions of the past?"
  10. Iris took a deep breath and explained everything. How Lockwood had seen him comforting Vivus in the woods and ran off, and how Iris had followed him. How Lockwood had gotten angry at him and fought Iris in the water and left him to drown. Iris also explained the dream he had with the glowing woman, and how he had no clue what she had done to him. He then explained how he had found Lockwood and how Iris had blacked out and then came back to his senses with an almost torched Lockwood laying terrified on the sand. Iris mentioned that he explained the situation with him and Vivus to Lockwood, but Lockwood didn't seem to care and left anyways. "He said something about going to meet the emperor in the Fire Kingdom, and that what if he (Lockwood) was the bad guy, not the good guy." Iris added. Then he explained how he had passed out and either had a vision or a very messed up nightmare about being in the Capitol and seeing the Fire Kingdom's attack, and how there was a young water elementalist there that looked exactly like young Iris who was captured and drugged by the Fire Kingdom. "And then, I had another dream, this time of Kamado. And..." Iris's voice broke. "Lockwood was there, and Kamado called him his grandson. But that has to be my brain making stuff up, right?"
  11. "I think... he's in the fire kingdom. We had a fight, and then I had a vision or dream thing... come on, sit down, I'll explain everything."
  12. Iris whirled around and saw Lynx watching them from behind. “Lynx!”
  13. “It’s not your fault. I don’t even know if that was a vision of the past. I mean, I never went to the Academy, let alone was taught how to control water. Don’t feel bad, I’m a little shaken up but I’m sure it was just my brain getting tired from today and giving me a bad and confusing dram of my anxieties. Don’t stress it.”
  14. TW// throw up Iris looked right at Vivus, and turned around and threw up on the sand. "Oh my god that was horrible. Vivus... I... I saw some things... some things that happened in the past. I- I saw the Fire Kingdom attack the Capitol, and what they did- it was so horrible. Not to mention there was a KID there that looked EXACTLY like young me, except they were a water elementalist. And then I saw LOCKWOOD with Emperor Kamado. Kamado was calling Lockwood his grandson. I- I can't take any more of this today. I don't know if that was a dream or a vision of the past... I just-" Iris laid down on the ground and closed his eyes.
  15. (TW//drug use as a sedative and murd3r/death.) Iris was drowning. Again. "Well great." He couldn't breathe and he was surrounded by nothing but cold darkness. He looked at his hands, and was surprised to see that his hands were translucent. "Great, I'm a hologram." He expected the glowing fire lady to show up again, but nothing happened. He just stood about staring into the void. It took him a moment to realize it, but Iris saw that slowly, the darkness was starting to take shape into a crowded village. Iris had read books about this place in school. "The Capitol." he murmured. He didn't understand why his subconsciousness was shaping the Capitol in his head, but he figured it was important and started to explore. Iris saw that everyone looked happy, merchants were selling bread and cheese to happy looking villagers, and young children in school robes, telekinetically flinging rocks at each other and blasting each other with gusts of wind. Elementalist kids? Iris thought, confused. What time period is this? Iris drifted over to what he assumed was the town square, and gasped. Floating in the sky, suspended by magic, was the famous Academy. "It's still intact? But I thought-" Iris's thoughts were interrupted by a teacher walking through him. Not even pushed him out of the way, the tall man in official looking robes walked right through Iris like he wasn't there. The man walked up to a group of kids, all of them about 10 years old, and started talking. "Ok kids, today's the day. Emperor Kamado is visiting us today, so be sure to be on your best behavior." the teacher sighed. "We'll be splitting you up into your homerooms, so everyone get with the other kids of your element. Air over here, fire over there." Iris watched as the little kids got into groups, chatting with each other excitedly. "The emperor!" and "I'm so excited!" were some of the whispers Iris heard. What am I doing here? Iris looked up at the sun. Is this your doing, magic fire lady? he thought. No reply. Iris turned back to the scene, and sighed. However, as the kids were walking away, Iris caught sight of something strange. It was him. Or at least the kid looked exactly like young Iris. The same scar on his eyebrow from when he had hit his head on a wall outside, the same freckled face, the same dark fluffy hair and tan skin. What the h- Iris was shocked, but he didn't have time to finish his thought, because the bricks disappeared from under his feet and the scene changed. Iris was standing in a what he assumed used to be a very nicely dressed hall of the Academy. However, now the hall was trashed and burned. Lifeless bodies of teachers and students littered the hall, which made Iris's eyes water. Oh no... A short, old man ran down the hall, his white hair smoking and his red robes trailing behind him. He ducked into a storage closet and came back out with a small group of students following him, including the Iris lookalike. "Where are we going, Master?" a kid in red robes asked. The old man didn't have time to reply, because 5 very tough, burly Fire Kingdom guards appeared in front of the group. "With us." a deep voiced guard said, and he and his buddies surrounded the group and led them to what Iris assumed was either a gym or training area before the Fire Kingdom had gotten there. Now, it was filled with a mix of alive and dead students and teachers. Iris watched as the kids were forced to sit in a group with the other children, all of whom looked terrified for their lives. One official looking guard walked to the front of the group. Many of the younger kids started crying. "Hello children." the guard said. No one replied. "We have been sent here on an important mission by Emperor Kamado. To eradicate all elementalists that are not allies of the Fire Kingdom and do not align with its ideas. And since you have all been being taught by enemies of the Emperor, you are all accused of treason and must all have your powers removed, with death being an end result if you resist." If any kids weren't crying before, they were certainly crying now. Iris wanted to punch the guard. The guard signaled to a group of people in lab coats against the wall, who brough over carts that had many pills on them. They began forcing the kids to take and swallow the pills, all of whom passed out immediately after. Oh no... oh no oh no... Iris thought. He shuffled through the rows of kids until he found who he was looking for. The young Iris lookalike. He wasn't crying, surprising, but he looked on the verge of tears. The boy was twiddling something between his fingers, and Iris realized the boy was using water elementalist powers to weave the water around his hands. Well, this can't be me, I'm not a water elementalist. Besides, I don't even remember attending the academy. Iris reassured himself. A guard walked over to the Iris lookalike and offered him the pill. NO! Iris screamed, but the kid closed his eyes and took the pill. Iris watched as the kid passed out, and just like before, the floor disappeared beneath him, and Iris fell through into another scene. This time, Iris had no clue where he was at first. He was standing on a balcony overlooking a beach, with a tall 30-year-old man standing next to a young boy. It took Iris a second to guess that the tall man was Kamado, and that he was somewhere in the Fire Kingdom. Iris walked forward and went to slap the emperor as much as he could while the emperor couldn't feel it, but he stopped when he started to speak. "Soon, grandson, the Fire Kingdom's views will be achieved. Our reign will go down in history as the greatest of all time, and the Fire Elementalists will be viewed as the supremacists of the elements. No one will dare question our rule." This guy has a grandson? Iris was shocked for a moment. He slowly walked towards the two, trying to see the grandson's face. (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA) Iris couldn't see the grandson's face, but the small blond ponytail caused Iris to freeze in his tracks. Oh my god, please no- Iris inched forward, only for Kamado to speak again. "I just wish you'd have chosen to study fire like the rest of your family, Lockwood. Water is the main opposer to fire." Iris almost passed out in his subconsciousness too. What did he just say? Iris stormed right through Kamado and came face-to-face with his worst nightmare. Young Lockwood was standing next to the emperor, dressed in formal royal family robes and smiling as smoke rose in the distance. "Water can be a powerful ally, Kamado." Lockwood said. Iris was filled with rage and sadness and a billion other feelings. He saw the floor disappearing below him and was expecting more answers in a next scene, but instead he saw his body laying still on the sand with Vivus frantically trying to wake him up. No! Not now! I need answers! Who was that young kid that got drugged? Why is Lockwood with the emperor! Wait! I need more answers!!! Iris didn't get more answers, and as he fell through the ground again, and he sat straight up, coughing, with a very concerned Vivus sitting next to him. Iris rubbed his forehead and grimaced. "Owww." (The amount of time this took to write isn't even funny. Iris lore though wooo!)
  16. “Thanks Vi.” Iris began to stand up, and began a little light headed. Iris rubbed his temples. “I don’t feel so-” he didn’t have time to finish his sentence. Iris’s knees buckled and the world went black.
  17. Iris shrugged. "Anything is logical. For all we know Lockwood could be Kamado's brother or son or something like that."
  18. "I do too... I just didn't want to accept it." Iris looked around at the smoky ashes of Clearwater. "But why? I mean his home was literally destroyed by the Fire Kingdom. Why would he join them?"
