LL LOTD: Set 3


Oh I absolutely loved being in Paris for the five nights I was there this past August and because of my love for the tv series Miraculous, which is set in that fashion capital and working for a French hotel chain, I can’t really escape it.

The below three outfits are what I created if my alternate self went to Paris for either work or pleasure, keeping to pink of course. I had lots of fun creating these too;
Parisian kitty by lucilxlu featuring fake flowers
Parisian Kitty: Time for work for the fashion magazine and it means going to many capital cities to do interviews, find clothing of inspiration, take photos or even stand-in for the editor-in-chief. I absolutely love this outfit! The skirt is by Dolce & Gabanna, those hot boots are by Alexander McQueen and ice-cream wristlet is by Betsey Johnson (of course). It is blending something professional with the pink blazer and making it into something I would call my own. The scarf is directly from Sanrio online store and hair would be pulled into a neat bun, like I said it was fun to create.

Night out by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Night out: The celebrity boyfriend and I would go out with friends, whether his fellow stars or my own group and it wouldn’t be all just for work. This outfit is inspired by an all out, star-studded event and taken on Bastille Day. A known holiday to the French and something they celebrate as much as New Years eve. The outfit itself is not really a designer brand, more something I created together to have its own look of individuality. The harness mixed with the pink bustier by H&M and a ruffled, voluminous black skirt with pink lace underneath. The heels however are Christian Louboutin and purse by Yves Saint Laurent.

Feeling French by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Feeling French: I actually have pants in this outfit! I know normally my previous outfits have been dresses or skirts but these pink jeans by Hobbs were too cute, I had to style a look around them. It’s something worn in Autumn or beginning of winter, the top is a pullover by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and made out of soft wool. The black embellished heels are by Dolce & Gabanna again and the necklace and bracelet are by Betsey Johnson. Are you all noticing a trend here on who I would pick in my alternate universe closet, if I had the money I would definitely spend it on these designers.

LL LOTD: Set 8


 
Casual outfits can be done right and still made to be fashion statements even if the designers are not present in each individual LOTD. These outfits are featured in my alternate self’s home town of Los Angeles. They all going with the colour of pink as per the norm and giving off a sense of originality in who she is.

Sharing three as always, I take it back some of these outfits have designer;

Disney Girl: The top is Miu Miu, the denim skirt is Dolce & Gabanna and the sneakers are Vans, so even a fun day trip to Disneyland could result in wearing high end brands. I will say the excuse for my alternate self is because she works for a fashion magazine so she will gets the extra couture even in every day outfits. I been to Disneyland on my own and if I had the accessories in the above LOTD, I too would go all out. Minnie Mouse’s headband ears, Ursula’s shell choker and the clutch bag of Beauty and the Beast made by Judith Leiber is a favourite accessory along with the clock stud earrings from Alice in Wonderland.


Dance Classes: Unlike the real me, the mirror version of myself stays fit and stays motivated in order to fit in the cute clothes that are part of her large wardrobe. She does a combination of martial arts class and mix dance. The dance class varies between modern, ballet and aerial yoga. The above LOTD does not have any designer except the accessories are all Victoria Secret, but it the clothes are loose and free to move around in. She packs two pairs of different shoes because the classes are spontaneous and she is prepared/organised for anything.


Casual Yet Cute: I have to be Los Angeles twice now during my real travels and though the traffic is pure chaos and some areas can be very rundown, that is what it means to be in a bustling city in any western country. The dress is Valentino, the denim jacket is Maurice’s, the strapless bra is La Perla, the black stilettos are Giuseppe Zanotti and the adorable perfume bag is my favourite designer Betsey Johnson. This is a fun LOTD and though casual it is chic and very feminine. Something I could wear too in the bustling city streets of shopping or sight seeing. The ginger kitten is if my alternate self had a pet living with her in her apartment. A small companion.

LL LOTD: Set 7



It is so hot this weekend! I am tempted to turn on the air-conditioner for the sake of being cool but I also know that will be a waste of time considering I might go out after releasing this collection of outfits. The below LOTD are a mixture of black and white with pink and either work, casual or sport.

Posting three as per the norm when it comes to sharing my outfits from Polyvore;
The Chanel boots by lucilxlu featuring nyc home decor
The Chanel Boots: Using a direct quote from the film The Devil wears Prada because my alternate universe self is inspired by this fashion movie as well as Confessions of a Shopaholic. The boots are by Chanel, not the same ones that Anne Hathaway wore as Andy Sacks but similar thighs highs to say the least. The top is by Dolce & Gabanna and the shorts are Abercrombie and Fitch. The pink cardigan is not designer but it is cashmere, a layer over the flimsy blouse. This is an outfit that sums up the perks of being an editor-in-chief’s assistant, shopping around the world in couture! My favourite piece is Betsey Johnson rose bag.

Fight like a girl by lucilxlu featuring prAna
Fight like a Girl: When I was 21, I took roughly two years of Jeet Kune Do class, it is the martial arts that Bruce Lee began, it is a mixture of other deadly arts but with his own twist on it. Now my alternate self would definitely take a combination of dance and martial arts to stay active (and to fit in those gorgeous clothes). The above outfit is one of her training LOTD, none of it is designer though the sneakers are Nike and the bag is Victoria Secret. Everything is minimal and she only wears the pendant that holds the intial of her celebrity boyfriend, subtlety at its best. My favourite accessory is the star pin in the braid, its pink and cutesy.

Laduree by lucilxlu featuring PiP Studio
Laduree: There IS a Laduree store that sells macarons and stationary outside the Palace of Versailles, I even got myself a keychain and notebooks after ogling at how pretty the store itself was. My alternate self would have Laduree make-up because she would be able to afford it and going to Versailles would be a favourite tourist habit of hers in between working and shopping. The top is by Honey couture, skirt by Ronald Van Der Kemp and the shoes are inspired by Cinderella’s glass slippers made by Dolce & Gabanna. My favourite accessory would be the lipgloss and the random pink tea cup, because high tea is elegant and posh.

LL LOTD: Set 6


tokkeki: “saku ”
2018 is just around the corner and I did not have enough new photos from Second Life to share with you in this final week of 2017 so I’m sharing three outfits I made on Polyvore with my alternate universe again. All casual but keeping to the same theme as the previous fashion post of pink and black colour.

They all bring a personal touch for me as each has something featured in reality;
Seasoned traveller by lucilxlu featuring personalized coffee travel mugs
Seasoned Traveller: I love going to the airport whether it is personally going on a holiday with my parents or picking up family who have landed from overseas, there is always an exciting energy in any airport that I go to. My alternate self would be travelling a lot because of the industry that she works in. The only thing that is designer in this outfit is the heels belonging to Christian Louboutin. I also have travelled Emirates business class and it is divine!

Brit chic by lucilxlu featuring a bow blouse
Brit Chic: After being in London for 12 days this past September, I enjoyed it thoroughly and I would return there again and again if I had the money and time. My alternate universe self would have no problem flying there especially since her own celebrity boyfriend is British too. The whole outfit is feminine and cute with designer items such as the Valentino pink sandals, Burberry perfume and Gucci statement necklace. An ice-cream with two churros is a favourite snack to eat while walking around.

Bludger by lucilxlu featuring a white mug
Bludger: This LOTD is chilled out and in the comfort of my alternate self’s home in Los Angeles when she is not travelling or working. I own a pair of the unicorn slippers that are featured in this set and could see myself drinking miso soup in an oversized jumper and short shorts while brainstorming ideas for my next fantasy novel. There is nothing couture in this outfit but the make-up featured are made by Anna Sui.

LL LOTD: Set 5



It is Christmas Eve! Corporate outfits can be fun depending on your job and how flexible your boss is, for my alternate reality self she works in a high end fashion magazine so she can express herself as an individual while still wearing the designer brands that her magazine promotes.

She tends to wear pink and black a lot more than any other colour being her trademark. As always, sharing three for you this week.

Editor-in-chief’s Assistant: Inspired by the aesthetic and feel of Runway in the movie Devil wears Prada, I was going for something similar with the office and the outfit as well. Top is by Jackie, skirt by Alexander Wang, earrings are Karl Lagerfeld, make up Bobbi Brown and belt is inspired by Christian Dior. My favourite piece in this LOTD are the badges- the ice cream, the Lucky cat and the mermaid shells since I love novelty personally.


Lunch Break: Mixing professional with unique trend and keeping to my own style, this LOTD is another office outfit while going on lunch break. The imaginary magazine is located in Los Angeles and I could see myself venturing into Little Tokyo during my lunch hour then picking up a glazed cruller on the way back to the office. Top is by Rosie Assoulin, sirt by DSquared2 and shoes are Valentino. My favourite accessory featured is definitely the pink keyboard bag, it is very unique.


Back to work: After the holidays and travelling around the fashion capitals, returning to the usual grind in Los Angeles while publishing the memories of the fashion weeks either in New York City or Paris. This is a very feminine LOTD going with her mood of being in a content relationship where is it no longer hiding from the public. Ruffled pink top is by Zerdocean, skirt by Chic Wish, shoes are Kurt Geiger, belt is Saint Laurent and earrings are Dolce & Gabanna.

LL LOTD: Set 4

tokkeki:
“ しーちゃん
”
I got a new set for you all in between working the first week of my 9-5 job, so far the past two days though it has just been induction has been amazing, learning a whole higher calibre of hotel service. Though I am no longer facing the front desk, I am still with the guests over the phone in Reservations.

This collection of three new outfits have two based in Japan, because I would travel there a lot and the other one is a private outing away from the crowds- a green retreat.
Getaway by lucilxlu featuring kate spade handbags
Getaway: There is no actual location for this place, it is several but I was inspired by the Spring time in the northern hemisphere and a forest that isn’t too hot or too cold, just right for a small, intimate picnic for alternate self and her celebrity boyfriend. Somewhere away from the crowds where it can be just them in nature. The ankle frilly socks and candy pink cardigan are my favourite additions to this LOTD, it is very feminine and whimsical. Also the small jelly is a return to my childhood, I loved eating them.

Trip to Japan by lucilxlu featuring a pink outfit
Trip to Japan: The Land of the Rising sun is still no.1 in my travel bucket list in reality, so it makes perfect sense that my alternate self would be going to this country more than once. I think my favourite piece from this look is the heavily detailed denim jacket, I mean c’mon just look at it! All those pins and chains, it looks punk rock but it’s not. It is elegant enough to pull off on top of a cute pink skirt and Louboutin spiked heels.

Tokyo Disneyland during Halloween by lucilxlu featuring cherry blossom home decor
Tokyo Disneyland: The happiest place on Earth, of course I’m going to visit its Japanese counterpart many times if I could in reality and plenty in my alternate universe where money and time is no issue. The short sleeves and skirt though may be the wrong attire for Halloween in Japan because they are already heading into their colder months (whoops). The novelty aspect that I was going for in this LOTD was a lot of fun especially with the food theme jewellery- sushi earrings and gummi bears bracelet.

LL LOTD: Set 2

Hey all, got another collection of Polyvore outfits
freshprinceofmaldonia: “The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all ”
Since this idea came to me I have made 37 outfits in total for the alternate universe version of me. Unlike the closet of Ame Hayato, I didn’t have to restrict what I put together to stay in-character. Because these outfits are what I would love to wear including places to visit, make-up to wear and accessories to carry with me at all times.

Been having a lot of fun making them and will be sharing three at a time.
Sparkle on by lucilxlu featuring wood signs
Sparkle on: This is very Himegyaru or ‘Princess’ inspired fashion but it isn’t really because it bears more skin than what the girls wear in Japan. It’s an outfit I’d wear in London or Paris while drinking tea and writing up the next big novel (alternate universe anyway) or about to attend a meeting with the fashion magazines. This is very feminine and still keeping to my colour scheme of pink and black. My favourite pieces are the pink planner from Kikki K, the sushi badges and earrings and the bag from Moschino it matches with the corset of the same designer.

The tango by lucilxlu featuring metal home decor
The Tango: Inspired by a chapter in the story I’m writing for my alternate self, it was a fun chapter to be written. She is back home in Los Angeles and getting dance classes for her brother’s upcoming wedding, what she didn’t realise is that her celebrity boyfriend has come by to visit on his return to work. They are paired off by the instructor and taught the tango. I went for simple but had to get a skirt that moves freely, it is made by Anthony Vaccarello. Shoes are Dolce & Gabanna’s cage heels, another favourite addition.

Writer by lucilxlu featuring a white mug
Writer: One of my favourite LOTD to make for myself, this is if I was at home in my apartment after a busy day working in the fashion magazine office and writing is my hobby to help relax my buzzing mind. Though the dress itself is quite expensive for just relaxing in (it is by Temperley London), I loved the idea of ruffled, loose dress along with the unicorn slippers which I have in real life too. The pink inflatable chair brings back a feeling of nostalgia as I used to have one back in the 90s when it was all the craze. Miso soup and Godiva cookies are a guilty pleasure to have on the desk while writing too.

LL LOTD: Alternate Universe

Happy Halloween all!

This all stemmed from a dream that I had last month and it evolved into an alternate universe version of myself where I got to be working in a fashion magazine or related to that industry and writing subjects that I loved while also travelling the world and dating the celebrity crush.

These outfits came from that idea. So here are the first three that I made;
Autumn in NYC by lucilxlu featuring porcelain cups and saucers
Autumn in NYC: A place I have travelled to with my parents during our big U.S holiday, the alternate me would be going to the Big Apple a lot to see her boyfriend in between his filming of his shows and would also be here to help promote the fashion magazine that she works for. Her closet is bigger and bolder than my own so she would be wearing the Christian Louboutin heels and Valentino locked purse. But because she is still me, pink is a huge yes in the clothes and being unique is what I love to express even outside in the real world.

Library chic by lucilxlu featuring colored ballpoint pens
Library Chic: When my alternate self is not being travelling the world being the editor-in-chief’s assistant and dressing up to the nines for the fashion magazine, she will be the tourist checking out the city that she is currently visiting. Being part of the fashion industry, Paris is a fashion capital to be going to and having been there myself I already have a couple of favourite places, it will also be a place of inspiration for my stories. The Dolce and Gabbana pumps and Betsey Johnson crossbody pumpkin bag are my favourites.

Italian holiday by lucilxlu featuring beach wall art
Cinque Terre: This is another place I went to in Europe and though it was densely populated with locals and tourists being the middle of Summer, the coloured houses was stunning! My alternate self wouldn’t mind shacking up in one of the hotels here for a weekend away. Again the bag is Betsey Johnson, her brand would definitely in my collection in the form of many accessories. The pink suit is a one piece outfit and she would bring her glasses to continue her writing despite getting called to swim and have fun 😛

Story Time: The New Scribe


The Scribes Sacellum

Part 2

Using the hovering ladder, the warlock Andais Lu floated up through the tower of magical books, she was so used to demonic tomes that being a scribe, she was exposed to more knowledge and given leeway to dabble in lighter magic. Yes she did aid demon hunters on the battle fronts in the various realms of the Broken Shores but runes could also be attuned towards the greater good than just another established link to the Burning Legion.

Professor Pallin, her instructor and a gnome mage was impressed with her handiwork that it was almost worth while staying up late and studying each technique of how to write out a magical scroll. Almost. That was before she was pushed forward to invest in the magical properties of shields and protection spells by using scrolls and runes. That was what she was doing now, searching the never ending sea of books that were shelves in the higher levels of the Scribe Sacellum. With a quill and parchment in hand and using her minimal balance skills on the floating woodwork, Andais quickly grabbed one of the thicker novels and jotted down the spells written inside.

She knew that with any type of magical property especially spell books, any caster had to be careful when opening them. In such a high arcane place as the city of Dalaran, these books used by the scribes were incredibly potent and also had defensive magic wrapped around them to protect them from the wrong hands. It had been a stroke of luck and knowing her own unlocking spells that Andais had not unleashed any kind of wrath from the books and managed to write down what she needed to start her work on a shield scroll.

Floating back down to the floor and trading pigment with Ink trader Jessica Sellers, Andais parked in her usual corner of the shop and laid out her notes on the easel. Dipping her quill into black ink mixed with the pigment of grounded mana crystals, the warlock started her first try of her protection scroll. Hovering nearby Professor Pallin eyed her work before nodding quietly and walking away. From the detail of what she had read in the books above, this particular spell was much more difficult but she was determined to unlock it’s secrets and conquer like she did with any other new spell she learned for her demonic artifact sitting on her back.

~

The candle was burning low as Andais Lu finished her twentieth scroll of protection, it was her final try and after much correction and suggestion from Professor Pallin before he retired to bed and a couple of extra mugs of Kafa coffee the warlock felt she was ready. Grabbing the scroll, she hurried out of the shop and down into the Underbelly of the violet city, the sewer guards were on watch which meant no rebellion or strange magical creatures appearing out of the dark. Placing the scroll on the ground, Andais spread her hands wide and summoned her voidwalker Helrath, if the protection had gone bad like her other trials before, her minion would protect her.

Reading the paperwork quietly, Andais Lu cast the shield scroll over herself, the scroll glowed gold briefly before dimming down. Biting her bottom lip, the dark caster mentally smacked herself thinking she had failed again only to feel a warm trickle of magical energy wash over her body. Helrath curled his claws into his fists watching his mistress and taking a step back, looking at her arms quickly with excitement, Andais Lu took note of the same golden glow appearing over her arms. Her mastery over protection scrolls was complete.

The end…or so you think. 

Story Time: The New Scribe


The Ledgerdemain Lounge, Dalaran

Part 1

It was early morning and the Violet city of magic was slowly waking up, while those who had laboured through the night slowly retired to their private quarters. Within the neutral inn in the northern quarter of Runeweaver Square, a certain Destruction warlock stirred from her deep sleep. Her easy awakening was shattered when something small and black streaked into the bedroom and pounced onto Andais Lu’s stomach “Meow! Meow! Meow!” Andais’ hazel eyes shot open alarmed and looked straight to her belly.

Staring at her and shaking her quickly out of her slumber was the Inn’s resident cat, Sunny. None of the guests or the two Innkeepers knew who Sunny belong to but it had taken a liking to the warlock, it has surprised the onlookers for normally no animal unless one of magic abilities would dare venture near a caster of Fel magic. “Sunny! I was waking up, you didn’t need to pounce” Andais groaned in dismay as she rolled to her side pushing the black kitten off her body. It landed on the rug and looked up at her, its long tail swishing maniacally in the air. Andais stared at the feline and chuckled shaking her head, she was used to the antics of cats. She afterall still had her two battle pets ZenZen, an Arcane kitty and Skitty- a Fire elemental feline, they had decided to stay back on Draenor in the familiarity that was her garrison.

Rather than settle inside her order hall on the once Legion controlled Dreadscar Rift, Andais had taken up residence inside the neutral inn. The idea of succubi watching over her when she slept on the lavish bedspreads inside the warlock order hall creeped her out and the Alliance hall of Greyfang enclave was constantly shoving Alliance propoganda in her face and to not make friends within the Horde.

Andais had opposed against this, while she worked in Dreadscar, she had made friends on the Horde side and not just from the Black Harvest council who bowed to her as their Netherlord. She had two close acquaintances, Zivaa Frosten an Undead female specialising in Affliction and Leithen Flamesong a male Blood elf demonologist, together they worked to achieve greatest for their council as well as to educate the new warlocks. Even with her colleagues, Andais still felt queasy with all the fel magic burning through her veins that were emphasised whenever she passed through the portal, it was easier to be normal on the floating city of Dalaran.

Changing into her Meteor chaser’s raiment and lifting the Scepter of Sargeras off the side table and placing it across her back, the artifact felt heavier with each new spell she learned to control. Grabbing her new blink trigger headgun, they were to replace her former mech shades from Draenor, Andais Lu exitted the bedroom almost tripping over the excited Sunny, walking past the assistant inkeeper Afsaneh, Andais headed downstairs already she could smell the sweet treats being cooked and coffee being brewed.

Today she was taking a break from her usual assistance within Suramar and focusing on her new profession that she replaced Alchemy with, Inscription. The gnome known as Professor Pallin was a hard case to crack, he barely smiled or reacted unless you mentioned a certain steamy romance novel that he put together with his colleague back in Ironforge. He made sure the warlock studied her runes endlessly until she perfected each technique. Andais had stayed up inside the Scribe Sacellum opposite her inn until the later hours of night when she heard the guards change shift in the Underbelly.

Grabbing a Kafa kicker, a dark roated coffee from Kun-Lai summit given to her by the barista Mel Lynchen, Andais Lu took up one of the velvet chaises and unrolled her newly written scrolls. Scrutinising at her handiwork, Andais smacked her lips together and took a sip of the hot brew, she hoped Professor Pallin would approve.

To be continued…

Story Time: A Mistress of Chaos

Dreadscar Rift

Andais Lu shifted in her warmongering slippers as she stared up at the Dreadscar battle plans listed with notices of help, urgent letters from the various leaders of both Horde and Alliance requiring aid on the front lines. So many cries for assistance but even with the Scepter of Sargeras now hanging on her back, the destruction warlock still felt overwhelmed. In this conquered world of the Burning Legion, after the defeat of the Pit lord Jagganoth and the pledge of loyalty of the demons living on this floating rock, Andais missed the warm undertones of her garrison back on Draenor.

It had all happened so fast for her to comprehend, first the return to Stormwind City to join the Alliance and her High King on Broken shore where the Legion had returned with Gul’dan alive and leading them on their new crusade. Blood elves and night elves with fel magic running through their veins assisted both factions and called themselves: Demon hunters, it was an irritating ping in the back of all warlocks because they were the original masters of Fel magic and controlling demons.

But what hurt Andais the most was watching High King Varian jump off the airship and landing on the large Fel reaver just holding his sword, Shalamayne. She did not know of his demise until the Lord of the Worgen, Genn Greymane delivered the news to her to pass onto Anduin back in Stormwind City. The young prince was quickly made King and a short funeral was given to the fallen Alliance leader. Preparations and battle plans were made with the generals in the city and soon Andais was whisked to the floating mage city of Dalaran on request by Khadgar. There she was approached by one of the warlocks of the Black harvest council, Ritssyn Flamescowl who requested her magic in the underbelly of Dalaran.

These warlocks had always been ambitious and hoped with a summoning ritual they would have the ability to control stronger demons inside the Burning Legion, it had backfired and life was lost or captured on the Legion world known as Dreadscar. It took Andais’s own power plus a small bit of help from a lesser demon named Calydus who assisted her in retrieving the Scepter of Sargeras from right under Gul’dan’s nose and conquering the rift. Andais Lu was now the Overlord of the Dreadscar as well as The First of the Council of the Black Harvest, Ritssyn had given her the title of leading their gathering.

Opening her hand, Andais sighed as she watched the green fire spark and dance in her fingertips, yes she had gained tremendous power by the magical artifact but she had also lost good friends and soldiers. She had also witnessed the loss of her void lord Yarion, when she tried to summon him when she was locked up in the cage, her voidwalker Helrath appeared in the summoning circle instead. It had left an empty hole in her heart and the need to move on was hard without her superior demons at her disposal.

Stepping away from the battle plans, Andais Lu wandered towards the portal that was connected to Dalaran, maybe the intense fel energy was getting to her brain, time to breathe in home and focus on the quests that were given to her. Quietly, she disappeared into the portal.

Story Time: The Neverending Fight

Last time I posted this series was in April, whoops very delayed sorry all! >.< I figured tonight I can finish this battle story just in time to watch Warcraft movie tomorrow 😀

Part 4

Frostwolf Keep, Alterac Valley, Alterac Mountains

Andais Lu released Incinerate yet again, the fel fire barrelling straight into both an Orc shaman and a goblin Arcane mage who were knocked onto their feet their robes burning from the warlock’s flames. In front of Andais as a shield, her void lord Yarion punched and clawed through the foot soldiers that tried to prevent the advancing Alliance into the keep where the Horde commander Drek’thar stood. To her left, the human Beast master and hunter Aum Parx was quickly shooting three arrows at a time, his pet wolf Reginald already ahead assisting the warriors and paladins who took up the front lines of the offensive squadron.

To her right, the night elf druid Booleigh EverNight casted her healing spells of nature, her glowing blue eyes keeping an eye on her two new acquaintances while protecting the armoured tanks at the front. Andais Lu licked her lips and shot a Conflagarate, looking up to the East tower she could see Mookie P cutting through the Horde who tried to keep the tower controlled, behind the warrior, eerie shadows slipped through and tackled the screaming soldiers obviously casted by the Shadow priest Liorae. A frost elemental swept through the fray, freezing the various enemies behind it was Kuppy Von BunBun the gnome Frost mage ice blasting anyone who dared to approach the trio from below.

It looked like with their swiftness, the offensive squadron was winning and good timing too, they had already recieved reports from the Alliance side that Balinda had fallen and the Horde were heading towards General Vandar Stormpike. If they could reach Drek’thar first, this pointless territory war could end. “Keep moving!” “How long until the towers burn?” “We can attack Drek’Thar now” in between the war cries, shouts and grunts from both factions, Andais overheard the tactical discussions erupting from her fellow soldiers. She heard a loud eruption followed by a deafening bang as the East tower exploded into flames and jumping off the tower were her three comrades, bruised or bleeding but alive and well.

Nudging her void lord, Andais Lu casted again “Yarion, make haste to Mookie and the others I believe the tanks wish to attack the Frostwolf general now” in front of her the blue demon bobbed his head in response and pushed through the Horde making a path for the rest of the Alliance to follow. Staying close to Yarion, Andais sent three Chaos bolts crashing into the closest enemy as they pushed their way towards the keep. Already a small group were running into the keep, they were eager for blood and ready to call victory for the Alliance. Andais saw Mookie, Liorae and Kuppy rush into the keep joining the tanks and was ready to join them too when she got hit in the back by a burning sensation.

Shaking her hands of the magic, Andais knew that feeling immediately recognising it as shadow magic. It was either another warlock or a shadow priest that was attacking her. Swivelling around in her felweave robes and looking through her plasma mechshades she caught sight of a blonde blood elf warlock smirking at her. Charging towards her was a looming Felguard “Really?!” Andais exclaimed as she quickly jumped out of the way from having her head chopped off from the demon’s double axe. She heard the woosh of a flying arrow go past her and watch it connect into the head of the Felguard. Beside her, Aum Parx lodged in another arrow to his bow and aimed “No Aum, leave the warlock to me help the others against Drek’thar” Andais waved him off, Yarion running past her and colliding with the Felguard an otherworldly roar escaping from both demons as they battled.

Giving her a relunctant look, the Beast master whistled, his Shadowmoon stalker joining him and they ran into the keep. Now focusing on the warlock who was still smirking watching the demons fight, Andais glared mentally assessing the blood elf. To have a felguard meant she was a Demonologist which meant for Andais Lu as a bringer of chaos and destruction she had to quickly dispose the other warlock for she shared her health and kept her heavier Felguard full of energy to combat against Andais’ void lord. Andais spread her hands and quickly cast Immolate throwing the fire against the blood elf whose own fel robes got singed.

The energy around the two dark casters contorted as fire and shadow magic was hurled against one another, the area surrounding them erupting in green flames or disappearing into purple shadow. On their side their demons continued to fight, Yarion blocking the axe with his bracers but getting weaker. Seeing Yarion falter, Andais winced as all four of her burning embers charged up with a challenging cry she hurled two Chaos bolts against the blood elf who could not deflect the green fire, seeing her stumble Andais released Conflagarate into the felguard and then Incinerate again into the other warlock.

Yarion sensing his mistress move forward was renewed with vigorous energy and launched himself into the felguard. Andais Lu’s eyes glowed green fire as she kept shooting green flames in repetition, the Verdant spheres glowing above her head “You are no warlock” she hissed lowly before burning the warlock with a final cast. The blonde blood elf screamed as she was killed, her Felguard disappearing back into the Twisting nether. Behind her, Andais heard the Keep explode followed by victorious screams and the Alliance offensive squadron running out of the burning keep and attacking the remaining Horde, sighing out loud, Andais walked across to Yarion and slumped against him.

Victory was theirs.

The End or so you think…

 

Story Time: The Neverending Fight

Part 3

Alterac Valley, Alterac Mountains

Grabbing Andais’ Lu’s hand, the shadow priest Liorae laughed merrily as she mounted onto her mechanised bird “No delay Andais, we press forward” the warlock nodded swallowing down the lump in her throat watching both Mookie P and Kuppy Von BunBun jump onto their mounts. Waving her hands together again, Andais’ dread steed appeared beneath her and she quickly followed the other three. Up ahead, she saw two Alliance soldiers battle against the Frostwolf clan that guarded Tower Point. Shouting to the three women, Andais waved her hand “You girls go ahead, I will help out the others at the tower” nodding in acknowledgement, her fellow soldiers and their steeds disappeared into the mist and snow they were heading straight for General Drek’Thar and his two towers in the main encampment of the Horde.

Andais snapped her fingers making her dread steed disappear as she ran into Tower Point, her demon Yarion right beside her. She heard the clash of metal against metal followed by battle cries from both factions above her, racing up the ramparts she jumped up to the top of the tower and sent Conflagate exploding into the nearest Frostwolf soldier. The female Troll hissed noticing the appearance of the newcomer and ran towards Andais raising her two axes, jumping to the side out of the blades away Andais allowed Yarion through who barrelled straight into the Troll. Standing to the side, Andais Lu released her green fire again, the Verdant spheres appearing and glowing fel green above her head.

The warlock of chaos and destruction was so focused on disabling the Troll warrior she failed to see someone approach her from the shadows, Andais Lu released Incinerate only to cry out as she felt a blade sink into her back. Spinning around, an Undead rogue appeared out of no where holding two daggers, both dipped in poison. Andais stumbled backwards as she attempted to cast again towards the rogue but her casting time was far longer than the swiftness of the rogue’s blades. Coming up the ramp she saw both a Blood elf paladin and a Tauren warrior barge up the stairs. The poison started to affect her casting too, Yarion seeing his mistress in trouble quickly killed the Frostwolf soldier and launched itself onto the rogue using large form to protect Andais.

With the rogue occupied, Andais quickly buffed up Fire and Brimstone and shot Incinerate into the two Horde heading towards her, the Blood elf cried as the fel fire battered against her armour but the Tauren took the majority of the hit ease and continued charging towards her with a roar. “Oh shit.” Andais cussed out loudly as she was thrown against the Tower’s outer walls, she heard and felt the impact, her cloth robes though imbued with fel magic not protecting her body underneath. Slumping against the tower, she attempted to lift herself up, her hands waving as she casted her most powerful spell.

A loud, deafening roar sounded as Andais released Chaos bolt smashing into the Tauren, this time it did stumble backward howling loudly with pain. Using the wall to pull herself up, Andais quickly incinerated the Tauren blow after blow regardless of her vision now spinning, she saw Yarion shout, his demonic voice sounding out through the tower and throwing the rogue off the tower. Feeling herself slip into darkness, Andais saw the Tauren approach her though his armour and fur was singed and burned he still was alive. A warm, soothing sensation soon ripped throughout her body and her eyes opened just as she inhaled the nature magic of healing surround her entire body.

Lifting her mechshades on top of her head, her dark eyes looked around her just to see a green hair night elf rush to her side, in the distance a Shadowmoon stalker howled and tackled the Tauren head on, who was also pinned to the ground by a flurry of arrows. “Thank Elune I got to you in time!” the night elf praised her Moon goddess as she knelt beside Andais and casted again, a ring of healing appeared underneath the warlock and the power of nature again overwhelmed her senses “Thank…you” she croaked out seeing a human hunter appear at the top of the tower holding an enchanted long bow. The Tauren now definitely dead.

Helping Andais sit up, the night elf gave her a serene smile “We saw you had trouble when the enemy sprung a surprise attack upon you, Aum got the Paladin downstairs but I raced upstairs after I saw you falter” gesturing to the hunter, the druid scowled and shook her head “Undead and the poison the very thing I detest it is not the natural way” “Booleigh, Undead aren’t even natural themselves you know that” the hunter chuckled as he grabbed his quiver off his back and counted the arrows. “What is your name warlock?” the night elf queried noticing Yarion hover nearby, its own blue mass covered in scars from the rogue.

“Andais Lu and I can’t thank you enough Booleigh for saving me” the druid laughed lightly and helped her up to her feet “You may use the magic of the Burning legion but you use it against the enemy so I cannot be against you”. The two ladies and void lord joined the hunter who stood near the flag that was now changed to Alliance “We are not out of the woods yet, this tower must burn before we join the rest of the Alliance”.

Story Time: The Neverending Fight

Part 2

Dun Baldar, Alterac Valley; Alterac Mountains

She watched the Shadow priest buff her and her warrior comrade, the two females both had eagerness to ride out to battle and she could hear the war drums in the distance being beaten. Andais Lu looked up at Yarion who stared off into the far distance, wondering what her demon was thinking about at this hour. The gates creaked as they were being lifted out of their lock, battle cries and cheers echoed throughout the eager Alliance. Andais closed her eyes and muttered whatever quick prayer for the safety of everyone before spreading her hands and casting a simple summoning spell. A demonic neigh sounded into her ears as she heard the other saddle up onto their horses, opening her eyes she found herself sitting upon her dread steed.

Next to her on either a mechanised bird or a Twilight drake, both Liorae and Mookie gave the warlock wide smiles “Let’s do this!” Mookie unsheathed her sword and lifted it into the air as the rest of the offensive squadron screamed out “For the Alliance!” and the entire group took off down the mountain hill and out into the cold air.

Andais Lu bit down on her bottom lip as she held onto the mane of her dread steed, fel fire blew back under its hooves and it charged forward, the destination for their squadron to hit Galvangar’s base of Iceblood Garrison and kill any of the Horde that stood in their way. Looking to her left she saw Yarion run next to her, his giant blue fists curled up. The demon was always used to battling, it was his contract and his service but she still didn’t like putting him up against a raid of Horde.

Galloping past the various bunkers and finally past Stonehearth Outpost where Captain Balinda Stonehearth stood. She was the first line of defense for the Alliance, behind her Andais heard a couple of her fellow soldiers shout “A couple of us will stay behind and help defend Balinda and our bunkers, they must not get through” already a small grouping turned left and headed towards the outpost. Andais continued charging forward, following Liorae and Mookie who was up ahead and now joined by a gnome on a ram. With a sparkling staff on her back and a water elemental running next to her, Andais realised it was a Frost mage. Encouraging her dread steed to run faster, it neighed again and rushed forward reaching the three ladies at the front “Ohh she finally caught up with us” Mookie grinned noticing the appearance of the warlock at her side.

Liorae giggled as she gestured towards the small gnome woman who stared up at Andais with curious blue eyes “Andais meet our closest friend and fellow fighter, Kuppy Von BunBun” the said mage giggled and gave a mischievous wink “Frost mage at your service Ms Andais” her voice light hearted and chirpy. Andais couldn’t help but grin back in return ignoring the other soldiers charge past them and head up the hill towards Iceblood garrison, they were close. In the far distance to the left she could make out more animals and creatures with horns, tusks and pointed ears. The Horde.

Up ahead, a Draenei paladin shouted “We don’t need many against the Orc captain, the rest of you should try and reach the General at Frostwolf and knock out their towers along the way”. Reaching the garrison, Mookie dismounted along with Liorae “Andais, you and Kuppy should try and grab their Iceblood graveyard so our spirit masters can have a plant in Horde territory” Kuppy reined in her ram and ran down the makeshift path “Come along Ms Andais, let’s clear the path for the squad”. Nodding and quickly following the gnome, Andais gestured Yarion to quickly follow.

Monitoring the graveyard, four Frostwolf soldiers kept watch, waving her hand that glowed purple Andais dismounted from her dread steed as it disappeared back into the Twisting Nether. Yarion charged forward past her and into the four soldiers, his fist uncurled and exposing his claws, behind him Kuppy’s water elemental blasted the four with ice freezing them temporarily. Waving her fingers in the familiar casting motion, Andais casted a special buff to help with her fel fire. Green demonic magic washed over her as Fire and Brimstone was charged up and she quickly released green fire into the four soldiers. Next to her, she heard shards of ice fly past her and smash into the soldiers.

Being clawed, bashed, incinerated and frozen from all sides, the Frostwolf soldiers howled as they attempted to get close to the two casters only to be blocked by their minions. Behind her Andais heard a loud boom and looked over her shoulder to see Iceblood garrison a burning inferno. The offensive squadron had defeated Galvangar and were coming out of the base. Hurrying forward past the fighting enemy who were busy trying to move away from Yarion, Andais tapped into the Graveyard and did a simple spell of conquer watching the flag change from Horde to Alliance.

Spinning around, Andais casted again and released more fire, Incinerate burning through the Tauren and Orcs just in time as she saw Mookie and Liorae run forward, a battle cry uttered from the fury warrior who buried her sword into the heart of the two soldiers, Kuppy and her elemental finishing off two of the Orcs and Liorae who was now in her Shadowform burned the mind of the last soldier. Breathing out relieved, Andais leaned against the graveyard post watching the rest of the offensive squadron gallop past them and head towards Frostwolf camp.
