to replace the sun with a moon

There is wind in your heart,
and freedom in your sails,
you had courage from the start,
and believed that nothing fails.

You are the thief that stole the sun,
then took its powers and tried to run:
gods chase throughout eternity,
to find the sun, and you, and me.

When I came back from my hiatus, I thought I had finished with all of my dream pets. A few days after I came back, I remembered my other goal: a Maraquan Ixi. Beautiful, flowing, elegant, and cute, in a fuzzy way c:
I traded a Woodland Peophin custom for one and completed my dream. I am rather ashamed to say this, but she was rotting away on my side account. She had nothing, no story, no art, not even a glimmer of hope. I had no idea what to do with her, she just... existed.

A few months later, I recieved a Valentines Petpet Paint Brush in an RE, and promptly burst out in crazed laughter. I put my first ixi UFQA because I believed in giving back when good things happened. I was torn between two lovely applicants, but I chose the one who I believed couldn't have created their dreamie if they wanted to.
Her new home was even lovelier than one I could have given her.
She had tales and art within a day of adopting her, and the decision to pick her new owner was one I have not regretted. It is fun checking back on her and seeing what progress has been made!

Fast forward a week later, and I found Sunbond UFT. She was cute, but I didn't really want another Maraquan Ixi after the first, so I thought none of it. Sunbond's name was cute however, and reminded me of my own nickname on several sites, Sunlit. I decided to keep a close tab on where she would go. A couple days later, she was UFA, I applied eagerly, and the rest is history!

How I adopted Sunbond seems to be a tale of good karma and chance, and contrasts greatly with how I adopted my other permies: a lengthly petpet application, detailed descriptions of their future stories and characters, magnificent future plans and true promises mixed inbetween. And the one who adopted her out to me mentioned that seeing those on Tekyre's petpage was the reason why she had chosen me, and it reminded me that all of my efforts were not unnoticed.
I thank three special neopians so much for being a part of this story, and I am elated to say those words with honesty in my heart :D

The Sun Thief: A Felian Story

A long time ago, when the Primordials ruled the lands and the Gods ruled the skies, the City of Sephilim was the grandest of them all. Arching gates and sandstone walls, while the Priest-Kings ruled from their Palace where the 4 great roads converged. This land of milk and honey was abundant in many riches, and many wanted for nothing.

The Last Priestess of the Sun God was an unassuming lady, having been upjumped from a mere sewer-child. She had curious magic ability, and could fuse the magic of different objects. This Synthesis was an unheard of trait, and she used it to her advantage by saying she was a child of the Sun God, who created all magic.

This was utter blasphemy, but the Primordials accepted her all the same, and gave her the position of her supposed father's Head Priestess. She used this position to destroy many magic artefacts in her experiments, and solidified her power on the state. At this time, she was the most powerful Primoridal in the city, and gathered all of the magic stones for a magical experiment that was supposed to increase the magic power of the Primordials. They ate up this lie like a delicious morsel, and all the while the Sun Thief continued to scheme.

Back then, this land had two suns and no moon: for they did not require sleep as we mortals do. The Sun Thief requested an audience with the gods (which was accepted) and she was ushered to them. Angels gathered around as well, curious about this little lady who had magic unheard of. Word was that she was meant to be made an angel, but alas! It never fruited, as the Sun Thief produced a curious ball of rock, no larger than a snowball.

All the angels were curious to see what it was, but no sooner than she pulled it out, all of the gods were turned to stone, and their magic was lost. The Angles cried and wept tears of blood, for their lifeblood was magic and without it they too were mere mortals, and harmed by magic. Their screams echoed and resounded through the great heavens, but their gods were now mute and could not answer their pleas.

After a long eternity, the rock was gone, and with it, the Sun Priestess. They all felt a chill in the air, and the day was dimmer, for a sun had been taken! The night came, and so did the moon: and while the Gods tried to destory it, they could only spark off a few glimmers of stars, for the magic that created the moon was their antithesis.

The Celestials moved swiftly into action, threatning death to all the primordials, so that the Sun Thief could be brought to justice. But she was not in Sephilim, nor the lands of the Primordials, nor anywhere to be found. In their anger, they culled the Primordials, except for those protected by the deep ones.

So came the age of mortals: those created by the gods with limited magic, so they could never again rebel. Humans ruled the lands now, but the worship of gods and angels faded as the gods did: for they could not live in cold lands, or use their magic with the moon about. The only one left is Tekyre, our patron Goddess.

Come with me, and disregard the sky

A Conversation between Tekyre and Sunbond, the last of the immortal ones

There are far too few of us.
Of course! If there were many, this would hardly be a game, would it?
Sun Thief. Restrain yourself. You were never one of us, demon.
On what grounds would I be a demon? If I had stolen the moon, but it was the other sun I stole, remember? Little angel, you know not of who is older and wiser.
What have you ever done for the mortals? Hold your tongue, cursed thing.
Did you have to be so? We are stuck here forever, may as well be friendly with each other.
Perhaps you do have to be friendly. The centuries pass in the blink of an eye for us, but you who were born mortal, how much longer can your bear the curse? The sun, give it to us. I dread the sight of the moon. You are Eve, who unleashed such terror unto the world.
Is that what they call me now? Why not! I dread the pleasant apathy of you gods and angels. Or, since the gods are dead, just you and your fellow kin. When you go where your gods went, I shall reign eternal.
Sun Thief. You cannot run forever.
And to you as well. Good Night.
