This story is set in the same universe as Lucid_Dre@mer_, although it doesn't contain any of the characters like Amara and Sarah. You don't have to read my other story to read this one, since It's not even really related, just set in the same world.
By the way, this story is set from the point of view of the star the girls wished on. Thanks for reading!
The Commander sent you to the place known as the Other-realm. There were people there who deserved Her Power.
The Power she was trusting you to deliver to their fated world.
Waiting on the launchpad, a glowing pink disc set in the blackness of space, with a fantastic view of all the Realms, in your golden warrior-glory, you held on tightly to the Bow and the Staff you would be dropping on the heads of two oblivious mortals.
The only issue was getting them to the landing site. A Sorcerer told you that she had it handled, but after a vivid description of space-time bending, warping to alternate-reality forests, and the art of fallen stars, you grew bored and decided that you would just get your job done.
"Are you ready, Flying Serpent?" the starbender asked. She was small, taking on the form of an elegant human female. But being a Celestial, she glowed a blue-green and had large, pupil-less eyes.
"As ready as I can be," you answered her.
You opened the star-pod and placed the Commander's treasures inside. She had many, many more, but she only advised you to drop two.
With a deep breath, you walked to the edge of the disc, staring down into the blackness of space.
"I'm ready," you said.
You stepped into the star-pod and grabbed the controls.
It rocketed off the platform, falling through the endless of space. You could see many silver objects whizzing by, but soon you had fallen past them. You were leaving the realm in between realms, and fast.
The stars flew past the way the moments of your immortal life had ticked by. A Celestial lived forever, but things could kill them-- like, for example, getting distracted at the wheel of their pod.
Spiraling down, you fell faster than gravity could carry you, rocketing around the way you had through your life, before you found meaning at the Commander's feet, working for Her and the greatness of Her realm.
Your pod approached several small orbs-- planets! --but it was too late, they were far behind you.
Like everything else in your life, you had barreled past them like a rocket. You had always been faster than your sixteen pastel-bright siblings, stronger and smarter, as well. You were at the top of the class, and you were always better than your neighbors at building your house out of stardust, and growing moonflowers in your garden.
You had been the best of the best, your skin's golden glow proving it.
But still, you could fail.
Life was too fast for you, faster than the zip of your pod. Your eternal life ticked by at such a rate you wondered if you'd ever rest.
You felt the controls turn to stone, a pink, glimmering rock. The pod was becoming a comet, made of ice and stone and stardust.
There it was-- your goal.
A blue planet-realm, like the Commander's jeweltone eyes, it loomed in front of you. Your pod was almost sucked into the orbit of a large, desolate moon, but you passed it in less than a mortal second.
The race known as "humans" dwelled in this planet-realm, living on a globe of water, fire, and stone. It was only ten light-seconds away from the nearest disc-world, and it drew closer and closer...
It looked so, so, very far away from where you had been before, but it was more massive than a dragon. More than a Spirit-sea. More than the Commander's velvet-soft robes made of starlight. It had the mass of six flat realms stuck together, and then some.
It was beautiful, as beautiful as the Commander's face, although you knew that it must be war-torn or at least in need of help, if you had to bring the Commander's Power to them.
You entered the atmosphere in a pale-pink flash, the light and speed pushing you to the back of the pod. it wasn't very big, and you knew you had to leave as your pod burned up with a bright flash across the night sky.
With a blast of magic, you left your shrinking, icy pod, nothing but a blast of golden light in your wake.
One minute there, the next, gone.
Like the lives of mortals.
Like everything else in your life, you were fast, faster, and fastest, teleporting away from the pod and into the blankness of a flat, glowing disc-world.
You landed on a watch platform in the disc-world. Many fin-eared, glowing Celestials in more colors than you could imagine looked over the edge of their world, watching a pink streak approach the blue-green planet.
When it left their sight, a big bubble appeared and projected the image into the black sky above. it showed your pod falling closer and closer to a green continent, then a section up at a pointy part, then what looked like a bunch of human dwellings next to each other, coming closer and closer...
It hit with a loud, ear-splitting impact, the bubble shaking. For a short while it was blocked by smoke rising from the crater, only showing gray, until it cleared.
Then, translated into the language of each Celestial, words rang out from the bubble's core-- words of the Commander's chosen two.
"What in the holy heck is that?!"
You smile. It was your work that got the treasures down to the chosen two.
The Commander would be proud. You could practically see Her smile.
She might even appoint you to a high rank like Her assistant! Oh, how wonderful that would be.
You smile as you watch two adolescent human females approach the pod carefully.
"Look out, Sarah. It might be dangerous. it could explode!"
"I am being careful, Amara!"
Sarah and Amara. What lovely, powerful names. They would be great heroes in their world. Maybe future children would be named after them! All because of you!
You look at the two girls, marveling at them and their courage.
The Commander had made a good choice in her young heroes.
Author's note 2: This story was so short that I needed another Author's Note, so here it is! As you might have guessed if you read Lucid_Dre@mer_: Get Lost In The Woods, this comet-pod is what lands in Amara's backyard, and there is supernatural interference messing with them, and their weird time in the woods. So, yeah! Hopefully this is enough words now! Oh, wait it still isn't! There's some more you might want to know, so here it is!
If you want to be in my part 2, let me know in the comments! You can choose your name and wether you're human or supernatural, all those things. Here's what you should know/decide on unless you want me to randomly customize for you:
First name (you can use your real name)
Last name: (you can use your real name here, too)
Game name (if you're human and a gamer)
Thanks for reading! I think this is enough words now, so bye!
