THIS IS A POST-KH3 THREAD *SPOILERS*
Lucky for Namine the Radiant Garden library huge and full off books of all kinds. So while Ienzo, Even, and Ansem were busy with their science theories and things, she nipped away to explore the books that was held within the castle. At the moment her fascination was with magic. She was pleased to found out that some of her abilities still remained with her even though she was in a new body. Enhancing those abilities and hopefully discovering new ones was her goal. She wanted to be of use to the others. She didn’t want to just sit around while all the other searched for Sora. She hadn’t told any of them yet, mainly because she didn’t want to get their hopes up, but she could feel that Sora was indeed out there somewhere. She had spoke to him in the final world, and other times as well when she was trying to help Terra regain himself. It wasn’t just a feeling she had either. She could almost sense his heart. The connection she has with him and kairi were still there. It was faint but ever so often she would get hit with a strong emotion that didn’t belong to her.
Namine hoped that if she strengthen her own abilities things would be clearer. So now she sat at one of the tables deep with in the labyrinth of shelves, with books upon books of basic magic surrounding her. On the table next to her was a lit candle she had set up to practice on.
“Alright, Lets try thunder.” She said to herself as she looked over instructions on how to preform the spell without the use of magical objects. “It says here that I just have to feel the electricity that is naturally in the air, the positive and negative charges.” Namine read from the book. “I pull that in within me and then force it out. Hmmmmm, sounds simple.”
Namine stood up and faced the candle on the opposite table. She stretched out her hand towards the candle and closed her eyes. She tried to feel that charges through the air as the book said. She opened her eyes and thrust her hand toward the sky and brought it down back down in front of her like she had pulled something from the air as the book illustrated…..nothing happened. With a disappointed look on her face she walked backed over to the book and re-read it. She followed it step by step, but nothing. If it wasn’t for the fact that when she Shapeshifted into other people who could do the spell, and she was able to preform it just fine at those times, though the effects were weaker then the original, she would have thought that she just wasn’t able to do that kind of magic, but this wasn’t the case
“Maybe that spell is to advanced of the basics.” She said to herself trying to figure out what she did wrong. “Normally that is the third or forth spell that is learned. She flipped through the pages of the books and found the fire spell almost at the beginning. This one said that to conjuring fire you just have to use your aura to heat up the air around you, you then directed the heat at the target if you were going for a fire ball, or you focused the heat in a general area to maintain it.
Once again the little Memory Witch got up to face the candle. She hoped that this one would be easier since she was also working with an object that generated fire. Her Crystal blue eyes closed for a second time. She tried to hone in on the different heat sources around her. The natural warmth of the room, the heat of the sun beams shining down in from the windows, even the heat of the candle it self. She opened her eyes and thrust her and out towards the candle. Everything happened so fast and all at once. The candle flickered, there was a white flash, a loud bang, and Namine found herself being blasted backwards into another bookshelf. The shelf trembled and sent a cascade of books down upon her forcing her to cover her head with her arms.
Once the last book hit the ground and Namine thought it was safe to lower her arms she shook her head and tried to catch her breath that had been knocked out of her. “Well…that was a blast.” She slowly picked herself back up. She heard running coming from the hallway. “I am okay!” She called out. “Everything is fine. Just fell into a shelf.” She figured that it was Aeleus or Dilan coming to check on her.
Namine walked back over to the book, being careful not to trip over the other books that now littered her small area of the floor. “Right, don’t play with fire indoors….I got that one Memorized.” She qouted her fire wielding friend, Lea.
She once more flipped through the pages of the book and found the Blizzard spell. She looked over at the candle. “Third spells the charm.” This spell was similar to the fire spell but had to concentrate on cold and coolness. Maybe she would be able to put the candle out with this. That was going to be her goal. She read the page with the spell on it through a few times. Then, once more, placed herself facing the candle. She did a circular motion with her hand before thrusting it out in front of her. Nothing happened just like when she tried the Thunder spell. She sighed and tried again, and again, nothing. She remembered that when Sora used the spell he always said something. It didn’t say there was an incantation in the book, but maybe the familiar words would spark something.
Namine took a deep breath and her hand preformed the circular motion, then as she thrust her hand out she cried out the same as Sora, “Deep Freeze!” ……..Nothing happened. The flame didn’t even go out, not so much as a flurry. Namine was frustrated by this point. In her frustration and in the blink of an eye she used her mind manipulating abilities to turn her appearance into that of the Snow Queen, Elsa, and blasted the Candle with her ice powers. The candles flame went out the moment that cold wind that produced hit it. The candle rose in the air and was encased in ice like a strange statue. The sun beams that hit the Ice statue that held the candle prisoner; bent, reflected, and refracted through the ice sending colorful caustics all over the walls, floor, shelves, and ceiling giving the Library the feeling of being underwater.
The Transformed Namine transformed back in a flurry of snow to her normal appearance. She was breathing heavily in annoyance before she slumped in her chair, folding her arms over each other, and placed her head down upon them hiding her face.
