A Story of Beginnings - Ch. 1 - The Giver and the Taker
'What did they think of my things? Do they like them? What would they like more?'These thoughts and feelings weren't just new to the Giver, they were new in its entirety. They became aware, but more important, aware of themselves, and this awareness intensified their purpose. They began to craft. This little ball had to be the most impressive. It had to be their greatest work. After a long period of time, the Giver approached the Taker and offered their masterpiece. The Taker had met someone willing to indulge them. Willing to create. They now had a purpose, much like the Giver, and now they could treasure and cherish their gifts. For so long they held their gift, taken by its majesty...But this gratitude only spurned the Giver forwards. Inspired by their gratitude, the Giver began to craft more, this time localized on their greatest purpose. The ground was pinched and lifted to create mountains, decorating the surface of the little ball. Shaping their essence to something new, water was poured over the ball, and as liquid is oft to do, filled the lowest points of the world. However, being that it came from the very existence of the being, everywhere the water washed life began to spring. Grass formed, trees grew, and even animals took shape, small at first, and then larger. Even as grand bodies of water formed and settled, the little droplets of being that floated began to form aquatic life, swimming about, growing and existing. This development was surprising to both, but light was needed to examine and appreciate all of the intricacies and detail. The Giver began to pull lights from nearby and meld them together in a larger, warmer, more radiant orb, and the Taker, now able to further appreciate the efforts, placed the world onto their finger made of void and slowly rotated it about the light, constantly surveying the terrain. With this, they settled close together to watch for centuries at the new creation.
"These creatures are wonderful, but I care for them so. Perhaps a creature can be there to watch over all of the other creatures?" -The TakerAnd the Giver made it so. From their very core they pulled their most precious essence and used it to sprinkle onto the world, forming little beings that stood on two legs and walked upright. The animals existed alongside these guardians and for eons, never changing.
Two entities lost in the endless void find purpose - The Giver, in creating things and giving them to others, and The Taker, in cherishing and taking things. Inspired by newfound purpose and meeting one another, The Giver creates Ayn and some of its inhabitants, and the Sun.
