Summary or explanation of your entry:: These horses finally found a place to call their own. But for one of them, it isn't so easy to settle down.

OOC name :: Odd
Name of the Entry:: LIMITLESS ENDINGS
Summary or explanation of your entry::
I think one of the reasons why people find the ocean so magical and intriguing is because you never really know what could be hiding! The reason I did this half under-water, was to show just that! Our heroine (or hero. who knows. boys can wear pearls and starfish too, I don't judge), has just found a small island made of pure gold! But it appears to be guarded by a greedy dragon. Oh no! There are also floating balls of magic (idk, I always picture magic as like .. glowy things until you touch them??) which linger in and under the water. Jackpot!

OOC name :: Skylark
Name of the Entry:: She is water
Summary or explanation of your entry:: A creature born of the union of sand and surf, she was destined to be a guardian. Forever wandering the beaches, eyes ever watchful. Yet after eons of defending and preserving the beautiful landscape, the guardian began to grow bored and restless. And it was then that something changed. The sun illuminated the mouth of a cave the guardian did not recognize, seeming to beckon her inward. Her heart thundered in her chest as she followed the light, venturing into the cavern to discover whatever the gods had left for her to find.

Golly these entries all look so spectacular, well done guys!
Just commenting to confirm that Skylark can use my image offsite - its private stock so technically I have no rules listed - thought i'd clarify to make sure there's no kerfuffle with her entry! <3

Summary or explanation of your entry :: The Earth God stands at the beach of the Endless Blue, looking out across the ocean, feeling at peace and enjoying the sunset. Probably taking a moment to relax after all the drama since the Rift God battles xD also, I noticed that there's been a banner featuring every god except the Earth God, and how did that happen =O

Name of the Entry:: Night Magic
Summary or explanation of your entry:: In the very very small hours of the morning, a young foal is lost on the beach when they happen across a magical sight - a hippocampus! The foal approaches but is super weirded out by this beautiful fish-horse and isn't quite sure what to do with this new information. I'm sure the two are bound to be best friends, though :D
