“We've gathered some of each of the major elements.” the head guy standing out in the giant field says as I notice Mustang watching from a distance.
“This'll b fun!” Cy says happily. me....i'd have said it sarcastic...
“Yep...” I shrug.
“Begin whenever ready.” he says. Instantly every1 scatters n starts doing somewhat random stuff. We watch absently.
“Ho hum...” I yawn slightly as we wait 4 them 2 run outta steam...
“Waiting till their eyes aren't darting around?” Cy looks at me.
“Yep...I say we start separate n combine in the middle.”
“Like we did so we'd start about a block away from each other n walk closer n the people follow us?”
“Yep, we're each working with our elements and combining them. I'm singing Darkness...”
“I'll sing Happy Boys and Girls. They're not tht far from each other in length.”
“Mine's a bit longer so I'll start my beat sooner cuz tht's what takes most of it.” I reply. “You wanna walk 2 the other end of this place or should I?”
“I'll go, u start ur beat.” she replies. I nod n she starts walking n I form strings from small roots. Slowly every1 runs outta power n starts staring at me. I make an earth arm come out n start strumming them like guitar strings n I step back.
“Don't turn awa-ay...I pray you've heard the words I've spoken...” I sing softly, making black flames form around me. “Dare 2 be-elieve...all for 1 last time...then I'll let the da-arkness...cover me...” I let the black flames cloak me, becoming a dark blue n purple swirling mass with some reds n oranges 4 dramatic affect. They watch, awe-struck, as the hand keeps strumming the strings. I stand in the massive ball of cold flame. That's right, cold. You know why? Darkness cools them enough for me not to sweat my ass off... “De-eny...everything...slo-owly walk away...2 blee-ed aga-ain...ON MY OOOOO-OWN!!” I let all the color go red with the song and fall away except the red water draping from my wrist. Red with a gel I made just for this type of thing...
“Be happy!” Cy says, making a sort of piano noise with the rocks and they all turn 2 her. I stop the strumming hand and let her have her turn. “I don't wanna waste my time on simple lil' things! I rather stay here over night with happy boys who sing!” I watch as she makes hollow water balls lit from the inside with small flames float around her. They change colors and shapes. Small sparks of lightning are around her as well. “i gotta feelin' u could use a lil' smile! Hopin' it'll stay there for jus' a lil' while! I don't wanna waste my time on simple lil' things! I rather stay here over night with every1 who sings!” the drumming/piano type sorda thing she managed to make keeps the beat as she dances happily on a giant lotus she made outta water perfectly.
“Carry me away....I need your strength 2 get my through this...” I start again, walking closer 2 her with the darkness and flames swirling around me. “Dare 2 belie-eve...all for 1 last time...then I'll let the da-arkness cover me...de-eny...everything...slo-owly walk away...2 blee-ed again...” I let the darkness wrap around me like a hood as the hand strums my beat and the water around my wrist leaves a red path where I was. “On my ooo-own...on my ooooooo-own...on my ooooo-own...on my OOOOO-OWN!! ON MY OOOOOOOO-OWN!!!” I let the darkness and flames form flaming skulls that swirl around me and I stop but keep my beat going so it slowly mixes with hers.
“happy boys and happy girls we'll be! We r the happy boys and girls! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! So happy yeah, so so happy yeah! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! We r the happy boys and girls! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! Oh yeah, so happy!” she starts dancing again on her giant flower as it moves a bit closer 2 me. The water balls change colors constantly and she smiles. “Try a lil' giggle it'll make u look so nice and if u start 2 warm u can further break the ice! I gotta feelin' u could use a lil' smile! Hopin' it'll stay there for jus' a lil' while! I don't wanna waste my time on simple lil' things! I rather stay here over night with every1 who sings!” she makes threds of water that's lighting up trail off of her. How? She made those hollow only used lightning in them. I step on2 the flower and turn it in2 a giant red flaming rose. I do as she did only the ones coming off of me are rose vines, and her water balls are dancing around with my flaming skulls.
“dare to belie-eve...all for 1 last time...then I'll let the da-arkness cover me...” I sing, making darkness and flames swirl around us both.
“happy boys and happy girls we'll be! We r the happy boys and girls! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! So happy yeah, so so happy yeah! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! We r the happy boys and girls! happy boys and happy girls we'll be! Oh yeah, so happy!” she makes the flames white.
“de-eny...everything...” I stand taller over her and make them dark again, forming more skulls and vines.
“now you know...” she holds out her arms, letting the fuses of 2 small fire works catch on fire and shoot up in2 the sky.
“slo-owly walk away...” they explode and form hearts. I growl and point at them both, instantly making them look broken before they fade.
“Every1!” she spins and shoots in2 the sky on a burst of her glowing water she's known for.
“2 blee-ed again!” I let the rose vines throw me up and flames and shadows form giant wings drapped in the fake blood, which forms itself in2 a place for me to stand.
“I'm sure u could...” she forms wings from water and ice, which shoot above her head. A halo of lightning forms around the top of her head.
“on my ooooo-own...” let's a steal ring form and catch on fire, then hang over my head like a flaming halo.
“be happy!” all of the water balls turn 2 glowing red hearts.
“on my oooo-own!” the skulls shoot ice daggers at them and they burst in2 steam and water droplets.
“be happy!” she turns the rose in2 a morning glory with full color and vines twining up.
“ON MY OOOO-OWN!!!” I make them burst in2 flames, making the things we're standing on melt in2 steam and we fall in2 the water the morning glory is made from and it splatters.
“SO HAPPY!” she finishes and she forms a giant ice pillar with the water, and I turn it dark. Every1 cheers and Mustang smiles. I wonder if he liked our performance...
“I think we have our new State Alchemists! Usually we only have 1 at a time but we'll make an exception.” the guy who was talking 1st says with a smile. We look at each other and smile.
“yay!” Cy cheers. I roll my eyes.
“well it seems you've made it.” Mustang smiles at us. “now we need 2 think of names for you. I have 2 say, you're the 1st I know of...”
“what do u mean...?” I ask.
“the 1st twins that are state alchemists.” he replies. “how about...Night and Day?”
“makes sense.” I nod. “the night alchemist and the day alchemist.”
“yeah!” Cy grins. “and now we can share the information we know already and help!”
“already...?” he looks confused.
“we told u already our background...on the other side science progressed 2 the point where we can grow flesh...not just skin, muscle and organs...however bones couldn't b made over there...and only half of the time the organs worked...”
“plus they had 2 b grown on the person...unless it was small and it could b grown on the back of a naked mole rat...it was disturbing 2 look at and took 2 long...”
“but urs covers up instantly...”
“yes, with the help of alchemy. With it growing bone may b possible and so might making sure each organ worked. Plus we could make them instantly with a small amount of good flesh from the organ needed and a mold to grow it around.” I say with a smile. “It could revolutionize things here...not only that, but there's a few other things I want to look in2...”
“you work with astrology and animals, I'll do my work with botany and water life and elements.” Cy replies absently, I nod slightly.
