I often bog people down with too many details about dance. My parents and sister always complain. Oh, I thought I gave you the password. It is Beethoven (make sure the B is capitalized) in case you want to see it. No, believe me, it is as bad as I thought :P Ok. Maybe not bad bad, but not as good as I normally do so I was just disappointed. Most of it I doubt the audience even noticed but there was one thing in particular that I am sure was noticed cause it is very bad and not the sort of thing that someone would be like "oh I just don't know if that is right or wrong" sort of thing. In my senior dance during my solo I messed up this one turn but was able to fix it, but I was still worried it looked bad but when I saw it it actually looked good. That is the kind of mistake I like :P
What instrument do you play again? For some reason I feel it is the cello but that also seems wrong.
Hi Mel! Because I bogged you down with details about it for so long (or at least I feel I bogged you down). And I meant to post this for you a lot earlier, but I forgot and such. However, this is a link to a video of our performance to the Beethoven piece.
The password: Beethoven
A few sad things.
1. I was terrible. It was incredibly disappointing. This was my worst run through for this dance in months, which was sad because it was the performance and all. I lost my balence, I second guess my footing, and did a couple terrible turns. And as such my face was affected (*grimaces to self*). My smile became fake and desperate as I tried to get back in the zone and be good. Also. I could never keep up with Carlos with the jumps at the end. :/
2. Because my dad zoomed in on me (even though he lost me often) some of the shapes and incredibleness of the dance are lost. So I apologize for that because it is truly magnificent (even when I do it terribly) and has incredible choreography.
This is the last post you had as Kiara. I'm archiving the older rpgs today and thought you might have trouble finding it:
Her instinct kicked in, and she moved her hands. The park's ground began to quake, splitting open, distracting the demons. Chief took off, heading out of the park, and she followed him. It was one of the first real lessons she'd learned when fighting. If you were outnumbered, or out powered, sometimes the best thing to do was run. She rarely ever had to do it, but this was obviously one of those times.
She used air to push things in the way, but a couple demons had caught up, and they weren't having problems getting through the obstacles. She closed off her mind to all her other thoughts, and concentrated on the sounds of the elements. They were humming everywhere, but there was one in particular she was looking for... She heard it, the sound of rushing water. It was beneath her.
She looked ahead, and zeroed in on a pole nearby. She would only have one shot at this. When she came close she jumped, and swung around the pole. She landed on her feet, ignoring the pain in her arm at the overuse. The demons skidded to a halt. They had sent ten after her. From what she knew of demon clans, they only sent a few to capture, or kill an intruder. This worried her, and she promised to think about it later. For now she stuck it in the back of her mind, and focused on the demons before her.
She held out on hand, and soon the ground was crumbling. They tried to escape, but she held out her other hand, and the roots of nearby trees shot up and held them in place. She used her mind to make the water deep below rise up. One of the demons seemed to figure out what she was doing, and soon started calling for help. The others followed him soon after. It was no use though. Humans were afraid, and if there were any in this neighborhood they were smart enough to stay inside.
Once the water had risen up to where it consumed them to their hands, she called sharply on air. It rose up a little, but stayed at a breeze. She thought, briefly, that she was going to be seriously exhausted from using this much energy at once. That only made her more determined. She couldn't collapse now. She pushed harder, dividing her mind into to control areas. One was controlling the water, and the other was trying to get a hold on air. Then, it came up, fast and big. She directed it to the water, and the combination slowly froze the water.
She released the tree roots, letting them slide back before they froze as well. She lowered her other hand, losing control over the ground. The water had them now. When she released the other two elements, she gave serious thought to passing out. That had taken a lot of energy, and she hadn't even used fire. Her mother had warned her about this. Dividing yourself into sections to multi-control the elements was a dangerous thing. It can be managed when using small amounts, but doing what she just did? No, that was a big risk. Especially when she was only 17. Her full power wouldn't complete itself until she was 18, and that wasn't until next year.
She looked at the demons, wondering what to do with them. They were frozen, mouths open since they had been calling for help. She didn't think she could kill them one by one. That would require unfreezing them. She just didn't have the energy. She could just leave them there, come back another day. More than likely some other hunters would kill them before she did, but she didn't care. She was safe, and Chief was safe...
She popped straight. There was no sign of Chief. She looked at the demons. She couldn't have frozen her own dog. No, she wouldn't believe it. She was on the verge of walking over there when she heard his barks. Relief went through her, and she ran in the bark's direction. She slowed to a walk, frowning when she realized where she was headed. It was an old building. Against what her mind was telling her, she sent the wind to scope out the area. She could hear voices, they were faint, but they were there. She guessed male, and older than 16.
She let go of the wind. They hadn't sounded dangerous, and Chief had obviously found them. She would just have to go in, and find out who they were. Fixing a neutral expression on her face, she walked forward.
***I'm setting up my character to meet Matt, and Bakaz***
Hey Mel! If you are back now, do you think you might want to post in the Kingdoms of Power rpg again? I've left the first two discussions up for people, but I'm thinking of archiving them soon. Once they're in the archive, they are harder to read, ie. harder to find where your character was last. So now might be a good time to search out your character and get them involved again :D
Right now, in Nunavut, Calie, Matt, Bakaz and Alicia have all met up in a warehouse. Calie is desperately searching for the famed portal and Alicia has just announced that her father knew where the portal was. If you want, you could link your character up with that group, or you can write her separately still.
