TITLE: The Day Things Began
MYTH: In the beginning there was a vast planet of stone, nothing grew and nothing lived there. There was only one thing there, a god who had the power to do anything. He lived there for many years and was bored of the nothingness, so he decided to create things that would entertain him. He first created plants to grow on the planet and provide many things for what he had planned. He then created animals, innocent animals, and hostile animals for balance. While he was creating these animals, he created something unexpected, he created a creature on two legs and was very intelligent he named them humans. These humans would grow the plants for food and advance in technology.
The humans began killing the animals, at first for survival then for sport. The god was so upset he started crying and his tears made huge canyons and they filled up. He liked this creation and called them oceans, then there were smaller ones he called lakes, then rivers and streams. This didn’t solve his problem though so he put evil monsters on the planet to kill the humans in hope that they would stop. At first it was ok but then the humans advanced in combat and started beating even the monsters, so the monsters hid away in caves and in dark places. The god thought that if he made nighttime after the daytime the monsters would have an advantage. This balanced things out with the animals populating the planet again. The god wasn’t satisfied with this though, so he created a challenge where near the end of every year the land would become desolate and full of snow, nothing grew. He thought he would reward the humans every year they survived the winter with gifts.
After many years of this cycle the god stopped rewarding them because they started rewarding themselves with things that they made for entertainment. The god was pleased with what he created everyone was in harmony and everything was in balance. This didn’t last very long with the humans because they wanted more and more until wars broke out. To counter this the god put humans in different parts of the world with different looks and languages and ways of life. The god was pleased with everything now, he called this planet earth, he decided to make more of these planets to see the different ways he could make things and the different outcomes.

TITLE: Good and Evil
MYTH: Once upon a time, there was a great god called Orto. He was very lonely, as he was the only god. With this thought in mind he created a son named Lozo. Lozo would one day become the great ruler of the skies, and Orto of the Earth. Orto promised Lozo that hand in hand they would rule the entire world.
Orto soon realized their would be no point in being a great ruler if there was nothing to rule. So Orto created a village of people, he created them to live among each other in perfect harmony. There was no war, no poverty, and no violence. The people worshipped Orto they created memorials and temples in honor of him.
Lozo was very jealous of Orto's creation. He didn't like the fact that Orto had people worshipping him. Lozo wanted to be glorified. He wanted to take out Orto’s village and create his own. He remembered the promise his father had made to him. He tried to fight back the temptation. Eventually, the young god's envy got the best of him and he created bad people. They worshipped him and did anything he told them. Then Lozo came up with a devious plan to have his people go and destroy the village Orto had created. Lozo's people journeyed to the village. Now it was only a matter of time before the whole human race was changed.
Lozo's army tore through the small village, lighting houses on fire, kidnapping children, and stealing people's riches. Orto was infuriated, he told his people to fight back against Lozo's people. It was a bloody battle that changed the world forever.
Eventually, Lozo's army had killed off most of the village, causing the surviving villagers to surrender. The young god was not yet satisfied. Lozo overthrew his father and put him in a place he would never escape, the Underworld. Now he could rule all people and have all the glory to himself.
The few of Orto's people who managed to survive the horrid battle, tried to repopulate the earth with good people, but they could never get rid of the bad people. However, they could prevent the bad people from doing bad things. To do this they invented a system of protection and called them the police. The police’s job was to fight crime and put the bad people into a place where they could not escape, they called this jail.
Orto's village was destroyed and now there was nothing he could do about it. Because of Lozo's selfish acts there is war, poverty, and theft. Humankind would never be the same.
TITLE: The Coming of Women
MYTH: Long ago there was once a land far away in the east. The land was hot and nothing grew. The beauty of flowers and plants was unknown to those who lived there. They could not see the beauty in everyday things and they wandered the land alone and lost in their thoughts. They were named the lost souls and were later to be known as men.
One day a leader rose out among them, he was more powerful than any other and he built a society based on trust and love. Legends have called him, Bob. The men were now satisfied, their short lives finally had a purpose. However they were never truly happy and they soon started to fall back into their old habits. Bob decided the men needed companions, people to watch over and care for them. So he brought women to the land. They were more beautiful then life itself and their wisdom was truly a gift from Bob. They bewitched the men with their nature and their many divine qualities.
Each man took a woman to be his companion and she was bound to him forever. The bond could not be broken so a ceremony was performed for each couple. In this ceremony they were pronounced husband and wife. The men, with the help of their wives, concentrated on the path Bob had chosen for each of them and all was well.
Over time life in the land started to change and this worried Bob. The women who had once been pure and good had started to lead the men astray. Their beauty and wisdom had bewitched the men into doing anything they wanted. Some had persuaded their husbands to steal jewels from other men. Others had made their husbands harm other that had displeased them. The women thought this was their only power over the men so they tested how far they could push them. Bob was troubled because although it was the women’s only power, it was dangerous and it could break down the whole society that Bob had built.
Bob pondered for many months about what he should do. He could not send away the women, as the men would surely be distraught without them. He looked down from the valley where he lived and saw some women walking along the long, stony road. He noticed that they had not changed since he had brought them here. While the men grew old and frail the women stayed young and beautiful. This troubled Bob so he finally came up with an idea. He called all the women in the land to his palace and told them they had a choice. They could either keep their beauty and their youth or they could keep their wisdom and divine qualities. He warned them that if they chose wisdom they would no longer be forever young and would grow old with their husbands.
However if they chose beauty they would be forever young and lose there personality, wisdom and the very things that made them who they were.
Bob believed that all the women would choose their wisdom and their personalities as he thought they would value it above their appearance but he was wrong. Some of the women were shallow and vain and chose beauty and eternal life. Others felt they would no longer be loved by their husbands and also chose beauty. Only a quarter of the women chose wisdom. They valued it above vanity and they went away feeling satisfied at their decision. They were no longer as bewitching as before, they could not ask their husbands to do hurtful things but they loved being good and wise. However the women who chose beauty found that they were only loved for how they looked and not themselves.
What happened next is almost too dreadful to tell but I will for the sake of my own peace of mind. The women who chose wisdom had been run out of their homes and had taken refuge in the high mountains. The beautiful women had grown jealous and had banished them from their homes and villages. They lived in the mountains for many months and Bob could no longer control his anger at what had happened.
He summoned all the women to his castle, even the women from the mountains. He told them how disgusted he was with their behavior. The beautiful women were letting their jealousy rule them and the wise women were running away from their problems. He told them about his anger and that he had decided their fate. To the leaders of the beautiful women he stripped them of their beauty and they were left with no good qualities at all. To the remainder of the beautiful women who had taken no part in the banishment, he let them keep their beauty but refused to give them back their wisdom. And lastly to the wise women from the mountains he gave them the greatest gift of all. He promised them that to anyone who truly loved them they would be more beautiful than any other in the land.

NAME: Cassidy Dalton
MYTH: One day Persephenie was playing outside in the Garden and decided that the garden needed more color. The only colors in the flower garden where is yellow, pink, purple, and red. Persephenie thought that she hadn’t ever seen a light blue before and so she went inside and started mixing colors. First she tried purple and some blue but it didn’t seem like it was right, she continued mixing the colors and decided that she liked blue and white mixed together. She came out with a paint brush and some paint.
She began to stroke a pink flower with her paintbrush when a bird came from the sky and picked up the bucket of paint and flew away.
When she thought that she would never get her paint back the bird threw the bucket in the air painting the dull white sky. The bucket fell on the ground empty. Persephenie went inside to get more paint. When she came out she was holding her blue and white paint. She put them on the grass and got extra paint so if anything else happened she wouldn’t have to go get more.
Persephenie continued painting her flower. When her cat jumped out from behind the bushes and into the white paint. When her cat realized that there was something on her feet she was startled. The cat jumped so high her feet touched the sky leaving big white paw prints. Now Persephenie was mad she had no idea what the gods might do to her for making a mess on the sky. But she continued painting the flower thinking of what she would do about the mess.
When Persephenie heard something in the woods, she was scared. But then she realized that it was just her elephant wanting for her to give it some food. He came out of the bushes and was curious of what Persephenie was doing so he walked over to her. He was watching what she was doing when he saw a mouse the elephant was frightened. He started running around and knocked over the the paints throwing it in the air. Paint splattered in the sky everywhere. Persephenie started crying now knowing that not the just the gods would be cross but her mother to.
Persephenie ran inside crying to her mother that she was trying to paint the flowers but the animals came and ruined the sky.
Her mother went outside and looked. Her mom said: “I actually think it is really pretty but if you think that it is a bad thing, than we can try to clean it off.” Persephenie ran inside and grabbed rags for her and her mother. Her mother and her climbed up a tree and began to wipe but it wouldn’t come off it was already dry.
Again Persephenie began to cry, when Zeus came out of Olympias and spoke to Persephenie and her mother.
Zeus said: “Persephenie, I do not think that it was bad that the sky is like that I think that it is quite beautiful so I am going to leave it like that. And don’t be sad because I am not cross, none of the gods or goddesses will be mad at you.”
Persephenie was so happy that the animals did that and she is not mad at them. Every day Persephenie came outside and admired what the animals had done.
Now when you see the sky you will know it is from the animals of Persephenie. Some people might say it is the reflection of the ocean. The world is better and has color, there was darkness before. The clouds are the cats paws, but now it's not just a painting the gods and goddesses made clouds fly and soar through the sky so that planes can go in the sky not just hit the sky and fall. So that the people in the planes can get closer to the gods and goddesses and see what they have created.

TITLE: Mars Myth
MYTH: “I know this is an important subject but we need to have order,” Zeus Roared. And immediately the room fell silent. Zeus stood powerfully, and walked to the middle of the room.
“I know this is getting out of hand, but we need to do something,” Zeus said.
“We could kill them all,” Hades said with a smirk. Right after Hades said that, Hermes burst through the door and said.
“Sorry I’m late, I ran into a stupid flock of geese.” The ENTIRE council laughed. Hermes replies by saying,
”What's going on?”
“The demigods are becoming restless!” Zeus said with a sort of anger in his voice. “They’re gathering and making weapons for war.” Poseidon adds.
“What do they want?” Hermes asks.
“Power,” Poseidon said.
“Why don’t we give them the jungle planet of mars?” Hermes said
“They could rule amongst themselves,” Hermes spoke with a worry in his voice.
“I love it!!!!” Zeus proclaimed.
“Ares, Athena you leave tonight to scout the world.” Zeus said with a roar.
“You will be flying in your golden chariots.” Zeus said.
“Ahhh, we’re finally here.” Ares said sounding a little tired.
“Did you hear that?” Athena said.
“I don’t know what your talking about.” Ares said annoyed at her. SNAP!!!!!!!! it was like a bear trap. One second they were on the ground, the next they were in the net high above the ground.
They were snatched up into net, but every time he swung the net came in closer to them. Closing in slower and slower, little by little. Thats when athena woke up.
“Wha, what?” She said. She was confused, not knowing what was happening.
Then she realized what was happening. She tackled Ares to the ground.
“You ignorant skull, dont u see what you were doing?!?!” Athena yelled.
“Every time you swung at the net it got smaller and smaller and now were almost touching each other!!!!!” She said angrily.
Then around 20 soldiers Surrounded the net. Then one big man walks in.
“Olympians, They don't know they’re rightful place. Earth.” The big man said.
“Sorry I didn't introduce myself, I’m Kahult the creator of mars’s darkness, and the king of the elite gods.” Said kahult. Ares and athena look at each other confused not knowing who that is. “Cut them down then knock them out……
“Wha, wha where are we?” Ares said.
“Obviously a prison.” Athena said with sarcasm in her voice.
“Ya but where Is the prison; so much for goddess of wisdom.” Ares said with more sarcasm in his voice.
“Fine I don't know.” Athena said.
“She admits it!” Ares said with a laugh
“Hey guard, hey.” Athena said, followed by.
“Where are we?”
“You're in the executional prison.” The guard said.
“Its time!” A voice yells from above.
“Ok!” He yells back.
“Come on, you're coming with me.” The guard said.
“Can I whisper something to you first.”
“Ya sure.” The guard said.
As soon as Ares got close to the guards head, he head butted him so hard that the guard got knocked out. Ares took the keys and cuffed him and athena. He also took the guards sword and shield. As he was running up the stairs they were recognized and a fight broke out.
Ares swung his sword and killed three guards. Then blocked one swing by a guard and killed that guard. He blocked to his left and sliced to his right and three guards dropped. Then he switched sides and sung to his left and blocked right. Dropping ten guards. Then he grabbed athena and jumped and pulled them up to a platform above them. He ran forward on the SMALL platform and swung his sword aiming at different sections of different guards. Guards with no shield got stabbed in the stomach, those without a helmet got their head chopped off. He went down the small path taking out guard after guard. Then realised he wasn't the only olympian fighting. Zeus was raining lightning bolts on the guards and all the demigods were fighting with them.
“Go right!” he yelled out to a demigod.
He did and killed seven guards. Ares smiled. Then kept swinging his sword then more guards started coming onto the platform. Then Ares felt something touch his back, It was athenas back. They were fighting back to back. They were cornered. Then Ares looked to his right and saw zeus in his chariot waiting for them.
“Jump!” Athena yelled over the screams.
“Ya no du.” Ares yelled over the battle cries.
They jumped and landed on Zeus’s chariot. And rode off to the main battlefield. No matter what Zeus kept raining the thunderbolts on them.
“Jump!” He boomed
“Ok.” Ares yelled nervously.
“What you afraid of heights?” Athena Yelled, then jumped off the back with her spear.
Then Zeus turns around and shoves Ares out the back of the chariot. Ares lands and automaticly starts swinging his sword like crazy wiping out guard after guard.
“Retreat, Retreat.” The Guards commander yells.
“Don’t chase them down.” Zeus yells.
“Lets march out side in style.” Zeus Said.
As they marched outside the jail they realized that they were just regrouping. A nervous feeling went through the soldiers when they saw the soldiers. There was all the troops of mars, all the Gods goddess, Soldiers and mini gods. A booming voice arose in us saying,
“I am Nahualt the creator of mars’s darkness, these are my brothers sisters and kids and there kids. Theres Skadi the god of ice, Marfa the god of peace and prosperity, Semyon the god of desert, Patrel the god of the moon, Genrietta The god of greed and corruption, Xochie the god terror, Mixcoatl the god of civilization, Chone the god of Dark wisdom and reuben the god of the heavens.”
“Charge!!!!” Zeus yelled.
Then the fighting started, Arrows in the air people in the air. People on the ground. Ares and athena are taking on Nahualt. Ares swings, but Nahuatl sidesteps it and throws him. Athena lunges at him with her spear. He Side steps that to and throws her into another soldier. She kicks the soldier and knocks him out. And she lunges at Nahualt with a knife and he close lines her. And he and stabs a satyr with the knife. Ares lunged at him with his sword and stabs Nahualt in the back which makes him screech a deadly screech. He turned and grabbed Ares by the arm and threw him into Athena. Then he disappeared. But in his place stood a giant. Nahualt or the giant picked up athena and threw her at zeus in the Chariot. He missed but he caught zeus’s attention.
“Holy thunder bolts!” Ares whispered.
ZAPP, BOOM, ZAPP! Thats all you could here. When the sound and flashing lights
cleared all you could see was a smaller regular version of Nahualt. Laying on the ground passed out. “Ahhhhhhhhhh!” Skadi yelled.
He came at me with a staff made of ice. He swung it at Ares and he ducked. Then skadi stepped back and shot icicles at Ares. One got stuck in his arm, the rest he dodged. Ares screamed in pain!!! Pulled out the icicle and through it at Skadi and killed him. A girl stepped up and said.
“You killed my father, and my brother. You must die.”
“I am Marfa the daughter of Nahualt.”
All ares could do is drool over her beauty. Then he realized what she said, and snapped out of it. He picked his sword up and took one swing at her and she dodged it and she automatically and said.
“Ok?” Ares replied.
They all surrendered at the end of the fight. Then Zeus went into space and lit the world on fire. To burn all the trees to ruin the world. To this day all the Dark gods are place in the cell next to chronos and the titans.

TITLE: How Trees Came To Be
MYTH: A long time ago in a village in Greece. Everyone was living happy with Demeter, Goddess of nature and harvest, watching over them. There were flowers and plants and houses, and mountains. Everything was great, and everyone was happy. The one thing that was wrong with this village was they had no trees. One day, a man who went by the name of Jackson, wanted to build a very big house to live in, he didn't have enough room because the mountains were there. He decided that it would be fine if he just destroyed a little bit of the mountain. So that is what he decided to do. Jackson started to work on destroying the mountain. That is when Demeter heard all that ruckus, and came down to see what was going on. When she saw what Jackson was doing she was furious. She didn’t bless the crops, so nothing would grow. She gave them very little water.
James was a man in the village, who was very tired of having no food or water. Many people began to get very angry with Demeter. James wanted to know why him and the villagers were being treated this way, he had heard many stories about it, but they were all so different. So he decided to go and talk to the Wise Owl. James set of that night to talk to him. he walked to the big oak tree.
“What should I do?” James said. “We are all going to die if this keeps up.”
“Maybe you should go and talk with Demeter, and see what’s wrong, and why she is doing this?” the Wise Owl says.
“That is a wonderful idea, owl!! Thank you so much.”
James set out at dawn the next morning. He walked over to the mountain and looked up, James thought to himself “It's now or never!” James started to climb up the mountain. He climbed and climbed until he finally reached the top on the mountain. He looked all around, but Mount Olympus was no where to be seen. James yelled, but Demeter did not come.
“DEMETER PLEASE!! I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU!!!” James yelled one last time. James finally admitted defeat, and turned to go back down the mountain, when he heard something behind him. He whipped around and saw Demeter standing there.
“You had a question for me young sir?” Demeter asked.
James was so stunned to see her he couldn’t speak. When he finally got out of his state of shock he said: “Yes I did, I mean I do. My question was, why did you not bless our crops and give us no water?!”
“I was watering some flowers one day, when I heard this big BOOM, I thought it was just Ares, at first, but it happened again and again and again. I went to check it out, and that is when I found a man by the name of Jackson blowing up my mountain. I was so angry I had to do something back, so I didn’t bless any crops or give any water.”
“So because one man did something wrong you punished us all?” James asked.
“Well I thought if I punished you all then you would learn a lesson, but I was wrong it turns out. I will give my promise never to do it again, by giving trees!!” Demeter said.
“Yes trees, but if you don't take care of my plants and trees, I will not bless you crops for 1 year!”
“Sounds like a great bargain!” James said. Demeter spoke again,
“I shall have every one know of your great dead and bravery.”
Demeter made James a hero. The people were so thankful of him they made a statue of him in the middle of the village. Now every once and a while people don't take care of
Demeter's plants and trees, and so she doesn't bless the crops for a year, and that is how the trees came to be!!

SPONSORS: Brought to you by a SUBWAY: Eat somewhat fresh
MYTH: A man enters a subway, hunger bubbling from the demonic depths of his deep stomach . D. D is the mans favorite letter, because he likes the word deep. Deep can mean a mass of emotion or the knowledge or just a measurement of something. The Man enters a subway, orders a sandwitch, any kind of sanwhitch will do for it is just an example. Ii will list its various layers. A Man enters a subway the bread is a platform for the teath to break through, top and bottom simultaneously, entering life and taste. Emotion boils from the simple taste, emotion builds in the beings (teeth). Emotion is the creation of things brought about by the lingering of the past mixing with present. The teeth continue on through to the sauce, a liquid curing the momentary thirst of the dry bread. Thus flooding the new area that is to be the world with a corelesss mass of water for the beings that once were sitting in empty space. These beings live boiled in emotion in an endless sea, no sustenance is held with in the ball. The creatures hunger for more meaningful existence (stemming out like most modern religions) they have nothing to build shelter or create their tools in the first place. Harsh reality broods upon the beings, it is overbearing and heart breaking for the weak so they ask for light sauce (insert weak insult here). This lack there of of sauce decreases parts of the ball leaving the soon to be oceans raised above. A man enters a wubsay. Teeth bursting into the cheese of some-what decent quality, bringing the very early life forms a crust to walk upon, creating land masses and filling the gaps in the waters. This crust also creates a core that is barely stable for the beings to be. The crust has pits and tunnels much like the somewhat decent swiss cheese. Swiiss is a delecate cheese, if bought cheaply from a store it is among the worst of tastes, it must be created and molded and aged to perfection to be good. A man enters a subway, life creation , all reality stops, ceases to move as the man reaches into his pocket only to find he dose not have any money. He enters the restaurant. Juan takes the place of the once everpowerful man, burning passion swells as he takes his bite. The subway is destroyed, keith milks a goat out in Thailand during the second world war. The goat munches softly, keith is the sandwich, theet break the chease as the meats of non-meats await hungrily for the footprint of the life. The teath enter the subway, hastily,l meat are very nutritious and create the mountains and solid core of the planet.suddenly life has meaning and the beings grow and change into individual forms to populate the earth and eventually end it with their own stupidity. The meat is pleasure and then suddenly sour as it is itself. A man is a subway, Falonious Gulps Down All That Remains Along With Creating The Tools And Skills Needed For The Beings To Live. Vegetable taste sour sweet, teeth acting as lathes grinding and sanding down, life has its sustenance, its liquid and emotions. The everythingness pouring together into the mans presences as he enters the subway that is life and creation within itself a s the real creator is the being behind the counter but the sandwhich was wrong to start so then the life is wrong but it is ok with the man who knows everything but is wrong because he was created wrong in himself. A man eats in the subway in Thailand which proceeds in time to the goat who wasn’t there to begin with thanks to keith but of coursethis isn’t wright its rong for itself.

MYTH: After The Lord created our world, even though he knew it was good, He felt He could do better. Believing Perfection to be his goal he went through the same processes over and over again. Firstly by separating light from darkness, the waters from the sky, land from sea. God created the plants and the trees, made the Sun and Moon and the stars that would also serve as signs to mark seasons, days, and years. God created every living creature of the seas and all the winged birds, blessing them to multiply and fill the waters and the sky with life. Animals filled the Earth. When He created man and woman, in his own image to commune with him, He blessed them and gave them every creature and the whole Earth to rule over, care for, and cultivate.
And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. So, in the far reaches of different galaxies, God created other “Earth’s” each one unique in its own right.
On Pison the world of change and extension, they worshiped God Orb and Man became the dominant creature. On Gihon there was wisdom and grace and they worshipped God Ark and the animals became the dominant creature with Man created from the wood of the Ark. On Hiddekel the world of sharp voices they worshipped God Assyria a symbol of the rational mind and the sea creatures became the dominant ones; Man being created from clays of the sea. and finally on Euphrates the world of abundance of food they worshipped the God Balm and the plants were in control; Man being created from the plants.
Each of these worlds was created as a replica of our “Earth”, yet still in their own way they were vastly different to the world we know. As the centuries went by and Man on Earth continued to slowly destroy the largest living thing around him, Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates flourished. They listened to their Gods teachings of wisdom of life, giving, understanding, and the rational thinking of life. They continued to believe and live by the wisdom of their Lord and were guided by Him throughout their daily lives.
These four other worlds watched us ignore the warnings, continue to abuse our Earth, each other and treat life as a disposable commodity. Every mistake we made was a lesson learnt for each of them. Then one day, immense black clouds slowly started to engulf our blue sky. Each day less of the sun, moon and stars were seen and before too long everything on Earth was in decline.
People on Pison became extremely disturbed by what they saw and ask The Lord for guidance. They knew how to live with change and extension but not in a way that it would bring them to such an end. They decided to ask the God from Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates to help them and it was decided that Earth should be helped but needed their guidance to survive. So each world sent down to Earth a sequence of pods containing their most treasured possessions and:-
Collectively they started again; firstly by separating light from darkness, the waters from the sky, and land from sea. God created the plants and the trees, made the Sun and Moon and the stars that would also serve as signs to mark seasons, days, and years. God created every living creature of the seas and all the winged birds, blessing them to multiply and fill the waters and the sky with life. Animals filled the Earth. When He created man and woman, in his own image to commune with him, He blessed them and gave them every creature and the whole Earth to rule over, care for, and cultivate.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.
We now know that Perfection is a goal, not a destination. Or another thought being this could be part of the Parousia the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
TITLE: The GREAT battle
NAME: Dylan Bennetts
MYTH: There once were two brothers named Theo and Eli, they were sons of the great God ElDarDor and live in the Sothern part of Trans-Atlantic Island.
God ElDarDor was god of Life, the creator and custodian of life. ElDarDor had a very tough decision of choosing one of his sons to be next in line when he returned to the sky as a star. The young Gods would always fight amongst themselves to get their fathers attention for him to choose between the two. While fighting they created devastation to the earth from the fires caused by the lightening. Each of his sons had their weak and their strong points but were equally matched.
ElDarDor could not choose between his sons so he got his wife Edia to choose, Edia choose her youngest son Theo because he was less violent. This decision made Eli FURIOUS making him send high voltes of lightening at her, this caused her to be sent up high in the sky. Being sent into the sky she became a very bright light which you could only see during the day.
ElDarDor was so mad at his son he decided he would punish him for hurting his mother, so he sent a massive rock down the hill which was to land on his sons head. The rock was so massive that as it rolled down the hill and it hit ElDarDor as well as Eli, causing both of them to perish into the ground, leaving Theo all alone. The blood of God ElDarDor mixed with the clay of the earth was how noble humans were created and the blood of Eli mixed with the clay was how corrupt people were created.
The first human created was Bolt. Bolt wasn’t the only human who wondered what they had to do on this strange land and wondering who will tell them, so they asked the ground and the ground told them they needed to pray and worship the new God Theo.
Theo told them how lonely he has been and that all of you are lucky to have each other. Bolt told Theo that he wouldn’t mind to have women, and Theo made women to nurture like he had with his mother Edia. Theo thought that was a great idea but he said that they must worship him for the rest of their lives..... And they agreed, this is how women were created.

MYTH: In the beginning there was no time no earth, nothing. There was no life whatsoever and no water to keep the streams running like today. Many people call it darkness others call it the blank void. This darkness was around everywhere and in the centre of the entire void there laid a purple spiral that rotated very slowly and making a faint noise while it moved. Nobody knows where the spiral came from nor how long it had been around there. But it grew progressively bigger to the point that it was as big as 5 elephants combined. Then at once the spiral started making a horrible noise that could pierce anyone’s ears, and coming out of the spiral was some sort of creature. This creature was known as Lumion god of the universe. As Lumion was created the spiral disappeared. Lumion was a very big and holy god as he had a white body tinted with gold linings around his arms and legs. However Lumion grew increasingly bored and wanted a fellow god by his sid, so he put his hands together and let out a white beam. This created many different gods varying from different colours and sizes. Then Lumion ripped open his chest and out came the sun and stars from it. The stars scattered all over the darkness and the sun replaced the location in which the spiral was at. Lumion was not finished though. He asked the gods to come together and fire their beams into each other. As this happened the circle in which the beams were creating grew bigger and bigger until it became the size of the earth, which we live on today.
Each god contributed to making the earth therefore parts of them was the earth. For example Lumion represented the clouds, Newmai small blue god represented the water and sky, Markius the rough textured white god represented the sand and so forth. However this was mainly Lumion’s creation and he had the most control over the earth. Many gods were mad about this and began to fight about whom they think deserved more control over the earth. Lumion decided the world needed some inhabitants therefore he made the first man. He did this by going down onto the earth and carving a tree out in the shape of a man. Then he let his pure, white beam enter the carving and thus gave life to the sculpture. He did not let the man see him so he paralysed him for 30 seconds to give him time to ascend up to the universe. There he watched over the male and took notice of his actions. The white beam contained knowledge in it which helped him know how to walk, talk, gather materials and hunt. Lumion also made the man as powerful as a god but did not give him the privilege to be able to fly and go up to the universe. But as he went up to the universe there was a big argument with the gods. As some wanted the man to worship them, while others didn’t even want to give him the powers that the gods had. Lumion was put on the spot would he not listen to the gods and create a big feud. Or would he kill his creation to stop the argument. He had made up his mind.
He told the gods
“I will kill this god and make the next humans with no powers, if you don’t fight and never question my decisions ever again”.
The gods thought about it for a few seconds. Then they all came to an agreement with Lumion. Therefore at once Lumion summoned a flood on the earth causing the god to die. He then created the first man and woman to wonder the earth. However this time he would not give them knowledge and he would make them less intelligent and more pitful so they could learn from their mistakes. This is how the world was created and this is the story of Lumion ruler of the universe.

TITLE: Athesis, Miridious and Satarius
MYTH: For all of existence the universe has been a cycle of creation, destruction and re-creation. There is no beginning nor end to the cycle, nor did it have a beginning and nor will it ever end. All physical objects and energy is created and destroyed in a constantly equal amount. At one point in this ‘Cycle of the Universe’ the two gods, Athesis and Miridious were reborn. By their own values and beliefs 2 was a sacred number, and so when they build their kingdom of light they built everything in pairs of opposites: the areas of dominion being the sky and the earth and the forces that allow sight being Light and Darkness as examples. The two Gods had emotions and psychology as we do, and so they became bored without a danger or problem to overcome. However, because of these emotions they felt curious and joyful towards the nearly empty universe around them. And so the two gods began creating a pure world of joy and happiness that was devoid of evil and destruction. At first Athesis created the elements of earth, fire, wind, water and electricity while Miridious created their forms of liquid, solid and gas. With these elements at an infinite disposal to them they began to combine them in incredible ways, creating rare metals, illustrious jewels and hundreds of other great materials.
By combining earth and water they created a vast ocean held in a bowel made up of unbreakable metals and elements. The two gods then began hurling all of their creations into the bowel over great distances. Chunks of light earth sifted out and solidified into islands and continents that floated on top of the ocean. Some of the heavier creations landed on these landforms and were imbedded into the ground or lay around on top, while most sunk to the bottom of the bowel and remain there to this day. The ones that remained on top of the landforms weighed downwards, creating great valleys and craters in the landforms until they eventually broke apart and dissipated into the soil, while the imbedded creations fused with the earth into incredible treasures that would not be earthed for eons. After they had exhausted themselves after thousands of years of this, Miridious and Athesis stood and watched their world grow and change. However, the two both agreed there was something missing, and so they created their greatest masterpiece: life. The two Gods blowed particles of dust imbued with this life across the world, where they settled and fused with the surrounding earth to created incredible creatures based on what they ad fused with. This is why the world has such a diverse range of life.
Humans were among these creatures, yet the life that had created them had also fused with the rare treasures Diamond and Gold, allowing humans to gain sentience. Unfortunately, humans could not control this gift, and so many wars broke out among them because of the uncontrolled emotions of anger and hate. Miridious and Athesis watched for many years in horror as humans created chaos across their once perfect world. At last, Miridious could not stand it. Descending to his own world, he wiped out entire wars and civilisations that he did not deem worthy with plagues and storms. One day, as his kingdom was on the verge of Miridious’ wrath, a malicious human named Satarius met Miridious at the kingdoms outskirts as its citizens watched in horror at the titanic figure of Miridious about to descend on them. Miridious, broken with the grief of human death listened to Satarius, hoping he would be pure of heart.
‘You and I both know humanity could not be so evil’ Satarius yelled, a plan forming in his head,
‘No such evil could be possible among us mortals!’ Miridious thought about this statement, then questioned Satarius:
‘If humanity could not be so evil, then who has caused this evil?’
‘There must be some kind of being as powerful as you who is jealous of these wonders you have created and seeks to destroy it’ Satarius replied. Miridious suddenly thought of Athesis, and in that moment had been tricked.
‘Of course’ he exclaimed, then rushed back to the Kingdom of Light to confront the innocent Athesis. When he arrived, he tried to kill Athesis, fighting with his once friend for hundreds of years. At last, the heartbroken Athesis managed to defeat Miridious. Believing humanity to have corrupted him, Athesis banished Miridious and humanity to a replica of their world, this one filled with sin and evil. Few treasures and rich lands could be found here, and only those who followed Athesis’ law would ever ascend to the pure world in the afterlife. That is why we live in such a harsh world, and why humanity is so violent and ignorant of their acts towards each other.

TITLE: How The World Began:
MYTH: In a galaxy far away from where earth is now and it was a giant planet inhabited by giants. A few giants called Hudson, Usher, Mike, Aiden and Nicolas were playing a friendly game of soccer when one of the goalkeepers spotted small bugs on the ball. They took it to the entomologist the day after, wondering what these mysterious bugs were. The entomologist searched through all his books and other strange resources and they came to the conclusion that these bugs had not been discovered yet. The entomologist said that they could name it. It took the 5 of them a while but they came to the conclusion that they wanted to call the species Human. After a few weeks the got used to the Humans around them when playing soccer, until… the ball was kicked so high that it got caught on the verge of space. The lack of gravity meant that the ball kept on floating away. It reached a black hole, it got sucked into it. The black hole was unknown to the giants and by the time it escaped the black hole, the ball had mutated and was much bigger, changed colour and still had a few Humans left on it. The names of these Humans were Ed, Alex, Regan, Thomas and Harry. The noticed that there were other giant balls floating as well, the thought that the balls had come through the same way. There were so many revolutions on the ball and it was spinning very fast, this explains why the Earth rotates. They decided to populate and live on this ball, They Called it Earth as it was all their names put together.
TITLE: Creation of the Universe Myth
NAME: Reuben Watts
MYTH: Long ago before the big peace that covered our universe, before the creation of man and before the creation of the universe itself, there were four Gods, two males and two females. The male Gods were Zeus and Jupiter, Kings in their own right and the female Gods were Hera and Juno who were Queens in their own right. Hera was the wife of Zeus and Juno was the wife of Jupiter. Together, Zeus and Hera were Kings and Queens of the left side of the planet that they lived on and Jupiter and Juno were Kings and Queens of the right side of the planet.
After this Zeus and Hera called themselves Greeks because their side of the planet was called Greece. Jupiter and Juno decided then they would be called Romans because their side of the planet was called Rome. Then the two sides wanted more land so the Greek Gods made a universe on the left side of their half of the planet and the Roman gods did the same but on the right side of their planet.
Thousands of years after the making of the universe two wives had children. Hera and Zeus had three children, Ares their son was the Greek God of war. While Jupiter and Juno had a son, Mars the Roman God of war. These two Gods of war Ares and Mars created a planet in honour of war, their friendship with each other and their two great powers.
They decided to make a planet that they would share together. This planet would be able to support life for thousands of years to come so they created humans, animals and vegetation to cover the planet. They would allow life to develop freely so when they made these life forms there would be man and women. This would allow life to continue, develop free will and so these human beings wouldn’t die out. They made the humans to battle, so that they could have these life forms fight in wars with each other, like pieces on a chessboard or like gladiators fighting in an arena at the colosseum. They made everything on earth so that these people could live, fight and die for their amusement. There was fruit from the trees and bushes, fuel for warmth and fires, shelter from the materials that could be found if the humans were resourceful enough. They made the humans look like them, in their image because these Gods were vain and felt there was no other perfect image other than their own. Ares would say that the Greek Gods were the only Gods. Mars would say that the Roman Gods were the only Gods. There would always be war amongst the humans and one side would worship the Greek Gods and the other would worship the Roman Gods.
The Gods planned to flood parts of the earth so that the humans would not become as powerful, by the mere number of them, as the Gods. Over time the humans learnt how to make farming easier, make big cities that would last for years, democracy and many other inventions throughout time. Later on through the years the Gods loved to watch the humans fight against each other, develop a variety of religions and beliefs. It made the Gods laugh at the humans’ effort to understand their world and their creation. However, there came a time when the Gods became unhappy as they started to blame each other for all the peace that had started to grow. These religions helped the humans to understand their beginnings, life and it was creating peace amongst the humans. They learned to work together, live in harmony no matter what the Gods did. Humans had learnt to march together against terrorism and war. The two halves of the world were no longer, they were one people growing strong within their beliefs, living in harmony. The two Gods of war were unhappy. They clashed with such force that the Roman Gods were transformed into the planets and stars around the Earth. Their anger had frozen them in time. The humans live in peace giving names to these planets and stars.
On a quiet night, humans can look into the heavens and view these glittering and reflecting objects surrounding their world being a constant reminder of the value of peace.
TITLE: The Storyteller (Creation Myth)
MYTH: In the beginning there was nothing ... Nothing but a vast empty space. But in this darkness, there was a single man. A very lonely man who had been asleep forever, yet had a single belonging, a book. One day (not that you could exactly tell) he finally woke up and realized that he had been asleep in a vast, empty, dark place where nothing existed. He decided to change that. Then he realized that he had an object, the book, with him. Curious, he read aloud from the book and everything changed!
“Chapter One: The Beginnings. Once, there was light...” And there was light all around. He was no longer in a vast, empty dark space. He had brought light!
“And an Earth for everyone to call home...” And there was the Earth.
“This Earth had animals like dogs, cats, fish, deer (etc.) living on it along side Humans.” And it was so. Everything he read from his mysterious book came to live in front of his very eyes. He read and read until there was nothing more to read. But then, his book disappeared and a new book, bigger than the last appeared and he started to read from it also the title being,
“Chapter 2: ...” And he kept reading and each time he finished he book, it disappeared and a new one took it’s place, each a little bigger than the last. The people on the Earth that he had created gave him the name, Storyteller for he was reading a book and creating everything inside it.

As it flooded over the meadow, in the same spot as the sphere, a woman grew out of the earth. The woman was named Januki.

MYTH: Before light and day, before man or any other creatures, there was a darkness. This darkness was called Chonalink. From within Chonalink, a Koala emerged. The Koala began falling into an endless loop of darkness.
This did not please the Koala. He created the first valley, this pleased him very much.
The Koala then realized he was hungry. He created trees and water. He would no longer starve. The Koala was pleased with his little paradise, he named is Ninna.
The Koala fell asleep and out of Chonalink, a great rumbling emerged and a lump of clay fell onto the valley. For many days, this lump became bigger, and after 10 months a man arose from the lump. He proclaimed himself as Zonagin. He was a form of the first man.
Zonagin created his wife from the Earth, he named her Jin. Jin and Zonagin had a baby, which formed in Jin's stomach for 10 months.
The day the baby was to be born, Zonagin created animals and all living creatures with one movement of his hand. They would no longer eat plants.
Jin was in pain when she birthed Klink, their son was to be the god of all waters. Surprisingly, Jin pushed out another baby. This baby was a girl, and they named her Mincatho. Their daughter was to be the goddess of all animals.
When the twins reached the age of 18 years, Zonagin reached up into the sky and evaporated. Becoming the god of the sky, moon, and stars.
Jin separated the ground into a staircase going into darkness and then began walking as the Earth closed behind her. She became the goddess of the Earth, otherwise known as the first mother, Mother Earth.
Kink dissolved into the ocean, while Mincatho turned into a dove, forever protecting all living things.
When Zonagin sent the first rain, men and women emerged one by one from the soil. The people had natural instincts and began living happily and repopulating.
Years later, the Koala arose from his long slumber and did not like what Zongain had done with his paradise. The Koala sent fire and hail storms onto all the humans, causing the first deaths. The First Family was not pleased. They gave all the people the strength to kill the Koala and end the chaos.
Everything returned back to normal but Death stayed, and to this day, Koala's stand a symbol of Death and Evil. This making the world imperfect.

TITLE: PIVOTORIO’S VILLAGE
NAME: Faith Roth
MYTH: A small village called Pivot had almost everything its kind villagers needed: water, stone, wood. But, they did not have a God! They did have lots of necessary things but a god was not one of them. The villagers would go up to their wise and noble King, King Pivotorio. They would always ask the same question, what do we do? King Pivotorio feared what might happen to his village if he did not do something fast. Even though he did not want his villagers to worry, they always did. They truly believed in their king, but was he powerful enough to create a god?
One foggy morning the King went to the Temple of Scrolls. He searched and searched for the answer all morning and finally he had found what he was looking for, the scroll of gods. He had found out that the only possible way to have a god was to sacrifice a young couple and say a certain spell to give them the powers of gods and goddesses. When he confronted this to the villagers, they were not as happy as he expected. The villagers thought that their wise King had gone mad! The king said that he would give them the rest of the day and tonight to think about it and then tomorrow they would make two sacrifices. There would be one of each gender. The next morning had come, but the villagers did not talk about who to sacrifice. They hated the idea. But they somewhat knew that the king was certain about this. To every one of the villagers’ surprise, a very young and beautiful couple had stepped up and said that they both would sacrifice themselves to the upper goddess world. At first look, the king was relieved but then he saw something that made him frown, the young girl was pregnant! The village was shocked and said that they would not allow that to happen but they saw no point in arguing because they did not want to be the one. And so the couple was sacrificed and sent to the upper world.
Three months later the girl had twins in the upper world and the villagers realized that would be their next god to come.

TITLE: My Own Myth
MYTH: Majko, goddess of Earth, was very beautiful and kind. She married Otac who was a very powerful god of war. Otac was also an artistic god who liked to sculpt in his free time. They both lived in the Upperworld in a kingdom made of Gold and diamonds. Majko and Otac tried for a long time to have a baby but Otac could not give his wife one. He knew his wife felt alone so one day he made a sculpture of a boy and then had the most powerful witch in the kingdom, known has Celeste, put a spell on the sculpture and turned it into a real boy. So now Majko and Otac had a son who they named Mudar.
Even though Majko now had a full family, she still felt alone. One day when Otac was away she had an affair with a mortal and got pregnant. Otac was furious at his wife but overtime he forgave her. Majko had a mortal baby boy who she named Nasilan, Otac tried to raise him as his own by sharing his love for sculpting with the boy but he could not fully accept him. Mudar and Nasilan were close and went and did everything together, because of this Majko and Otac never told the boys the truth of how they were not fully related. Because Nasilan was a mortal he was not powerful like the rest of his family, so has both boys grew older Mudar was always the noble and wise one while Nasilan questioned why he was so weak and different. The curiosity of not knowing why, drove Nasilan to be violent and rude.
One day Otac took Mudar out on an adventure and left Nasilan at home to cook with his mother. Nasilan was angry about this so he went to the room where Otac had once taught him how to sculpt, and he began to destroy the sculptures that Otac had made. Then he was exhausted so he went to his room to take a nap. When Otac came home he found his sculptures destroyed, he instantly stomped up to Nasilan’s room, woke him out of his sleep and threw him across the room, he threatened to kill him and began shouting, “how dare you destroy my great sculptures I have worked so hard on, you ungrateful boy. You are not really even a part of this family. Your mother was a harlot, you are a mortal and I am not your real father so I would not feel guilty if I were to kill you now.” Majko heard the ruckus and rushed over to see what was going on. Otac was about to kill Nasilan so she ran over quickly to protect her son. She begged to Otac to let him live, but he only agreed to let him live if he was banished from the Upperworld and sent down to Earth to live with the rest of the mortals.
At the time the mortals who lived on earth were called Karu people, they lived like wild animals and did not know how to make clothes or shoes so they roamed the Earth naked. They did not know how to make houses or tools. Nor did they know how to grow food or hunt so they ate grass, roots, berries and even their own flesh. Because of this Otac sent Nasilan down to earth, and told him to teach the Karu people the proper ways to live. If he succeeded then he could come back to the Upperworld. Otac even sent the witch Celeste with Nasilan to put a spell on the land where the best soil is to cultivate crops and make them grow quicker. But once Nasilan and Celeste got to earth he had another plan in mind. As soon as Celeste put the spell over the land, Nasilan took her hostage. He demanded that she help him with his ultimate plan, or she would die.
And so Nasilan began his plan, by first doing what Otac told him to do. He taught the Karu people how to make tools, weapons and even how to make clothes. He then began sculpting thousands of humans and forcing Celeste to use her magic to turn them. He even taught the Karu people how to sculpt so more humans would be created quicker. He now had an army. But his army was still weak so he created a different kind of sculpture. He made them taller, faster and stronger, with sharp teeth. They were half werewolf and half vampire so he called these ones, hybrids. They craved human blood and were very vicious so Nasilan had to teach them to ignore there cravings for human blood and to focus their cravings on animal blood. His army was now complete. So Nasilan did not need Celeste anymore so he had a hybrid kill her.
Otac, Majko and Mudar watched from the Upperworld has Nasilan put together his army. They were frightened and knew that Nasilan would try to lead his army to the Upperworld and take over the kingdom so Otac locked the door that led from the Earth to the Upperworld. Before he locked the door Mudar volunteered to go down to Earth and destroy Nasilan and his army of humans and hybrids himself. But before Mudar went, his father Otac created one last sculpture of a god named Menime, god of wisdom and powerful words. He had another witch turn Menime, and finally Mudar and Menime set off to stop Nasilan. When they got to Earth they found Nasilan and his army waiting at the door. He ordered his army to attack but Menime quickly shouted out “wait! I am the god of wisdom and powerful words. I will now convince you to stand down. I have come to talk you out of this nonsense, this war. What for? Because I can assure, you that one day you will be a great ruler but you can’t do that if you act foolish.” Mineme’s powerful words sank into Nasilan’s mind and he decided that he would stay on Earth and be a ruler. Overtime he soon forgot about his life and family he once had in the Upperworld and spent the rest of his life with his hybrids and humans in peace.

NAME: Danielle Drumm
MYTH: Long ago, before there was anything, there was the sun, Raja, and the moon, Amelit. They created two gods, Horus, and Icar, who were to rule over all the other gods and goddesses to come equally and fairly. But the one god, Horus, wanted it all for himself, so he killed Icar. Well, that caused Raja and Amelit to be furious and wage war upon Horus. While Horus was gathering an army of demons and monsters, Raja and Amelit were creating more gods and goddesses. But there was one god who was the tallest, strongest, and wisest of them all. He had two massive horns, four arms, and one giant eye that sees all. His name was Ethlitex. But in the depths, Horus was creating a demon that would rule among all the others. He had ten claws coming out of each hand, a spiked tail, and two dragon heads. His breath was poison and he killed his victims by keeping their soul to torture for eternity. His name was Delvix. Ethlitex and Delvix had a ferocious battle but Ethlitex won with a massive stroke of his fiery sword, and Delvix turned to ashes. Raja and Amelit made Ethlitex the ruler of all things and banished Horus to the depths forever. Ethlitex became the sun and the moon. He then created four other gods. Lithius, goddess of water, Horcrux, god of fire, Miopet, goddess of the wind, and Garleth, god of the earth. As his second creation, Ethlitex thought there should be something to worship all the gods, so he created man. He made man from the ashes of Delvix and the bones of the fallen gods. The bones made man good and right, but the ashes made man sinful and greedy. But man proved their righteousness with their worship to the gods. So Ethlitex allowed them to live and tend to the earth.

NAME: Jadan Forren
MYTH: Everything was pitch black, not a single thing seemed to be alive. But yet, far away there was a god called Everlasting. He shone so bright, he had fire in his mouth. His eyes saw everything, in his hand he held a sword. His robe was made of gold, but yet he felt alone, he felt like he needed to make something. He turned his head up and gently said, ”Come out my dear servants, do not be afraid.” And thus two spirits came out, each had wings of that of an angel and both had golden eyes, but yet there was a complete difference about them. One had a mouth like bird the other had one of a lizard. Everlasting gently put them on the palm of his hand and told them to multiply. The two servants flew off and within minutes there were hundreds of servants. Each one looked completely different and right away Everlasting knew that they all had different skills. Then Everlasting blew into the dark night and every time he blew, gold bricks came out and thus he built a kingdom that would belong to the sky. Then, Everlasting turned around and made monsters! But every monster had a different skill just like the servants. Everlasting deemed perfect until about ten years later a betrayer came. He was a servant named Gloriouse. He had loved living in the kingdom of Everlasting but yet Gloriouse always had this feeling that he should be the one ruling. So one day Gloriouse took 58 other servants that were following him and went into Everlasting’s chamber. Around this time Everlasting was creating the world, He was making his last piece, a human. Everlasting was just starting on the second human’s foot, when Gloriouse came up behind him with his servants. Gloriouse flew up to the top of Everlasting and blew a huge lightning bolt into Everlasting’s head. Everlasting keeled over screaming in agony. Gloriouse laughed an evil laugh. Everlasting turned around and out of his mouth flew a flame that went on Gloriouse and burned him. Gloriouse saw that he was about to die, so he begged for Everlasting to save him. Everlasting said, ”You shall always burn in the darkest part of the world!” And thus Gloriouse would always burn in the darkest part of the world. Then Everlastimg finished making the human and would always rule the world with his servants being half monsters and half gods.

MYTH: The creation of the world began when this creepy dude created Yuppie Powder. He wanted to create Hippy Powder to take him to the Island of Happy Hippies, which somehow already existed, and he ate it, thinking it was Hippy Powder. He turned into a Yuppie and was so stupid he made a planet sized gas tank and blew it up. He died in the explosion and from this a radioactive blue planet formed. When the distorted chunks of him fell to the planet, little gingerbread men were created. This is why the creatures that live today sometimes have Yuppyish tendencies. A new god, Leven-ing, was created when a gingerbread man drank from a radioactive stream. He made gummy frogs, gummy sharks, cube shaped candy cane trees, trail mix sandstorms, and caramel lakes. He made the world non-radioactive, but it still glowed blue. Leven-ing created more creatures. He made gummy bears, in all the colors, to live in the forests. Wolves lived in PineMint forests and could be tamed by being fed a lollipop sapling. Spearmint Crocodiles lived in the Jellomel lakes. The Gingerbreads fed on gummy bears, frogs, and sharks. By taking a spice pebble and a PineMint stick, they made fires, and stuck poles through the animals and roasted them. All was well until the gummy bears started plotting… The End?
A few hundred years later, the Gummy bears found that Leven-ing left one stream radioactive. They turned themselves into gods, made a boatload of Yuppie Powder, and tricked everyone into eating it. They all became Yuppies and blew themselves up. The planet blew up, but the Yuppieness that was leftover from this and the creepy dude transferred over to some of the early people, and they passed it onto the people of today. And this is why people are Yuppies.

“I idntd nowk heyt pgradedu het ommunicationc ystems,” explained Edna.
“eayh,” replied Sandy. As they continue to look around, they also realize houses have more construction, everyone has an education, and there aren’t kings to rule anymore. A random person approaches them.
“What are you wearing? Are you from the beginning of time?”
“hyw esy ew rea,” replied Edna offended.
“What are you even saying? No wonder you’re from the past!”
“eyh!” Sandy said now offended too. Their conversation went on for a little while.nAfter a couple of hours, the girls realized they were getting hungry. So they asked a person in a yellow taxi cab where they could get some food.
“Just down the street there is a nice fast food restaurant.”
“hankt ouy eryv uchm!” Edna announced.
So, just like the man said, there was a nice restaurant just down the street.
“hatw si a orndogc ro a unnelcakef?” Edna asked.
“Um, a food.” Replied the bored clerk.
“ellw aket neo fo ache.” Answered Sandy.
As they ate their food, they realized how good modern food tastes.
“I hinkt ti si imet ot og omeh.” Said Edna.
“utb I ovel het uturef.” Replied Sandy.
“I nowk,” Edna argued back. “utb evew adh a ongl ayd.”
“ko,” agreed Sandy. They used their magic hour glass to get home. The two girls loved the future, and might come back next year to see the new changes and upgrades.
| TITLE: Feathers of the dragon
NAME: Bailey A. Wood
MYTH: Once, before there were humans, or even gods, dragons ruled the land. The world was an orderly place then, ruled by the Great Dragon Council. There, the leader of that council, is our character, a purple dragon who went by the name Dragonfeather. One day, during a pressing meeting of the Dragon Council, an ice dragon called Icerius, provided a stunning piece of new development, a break-in in the home of Restolu, the North village’s elder.
“Icerius, do you have any idea what the thief looked like?” Dragonfeather asked pressingly as the room grew warmer and Dragonfeather snorted smoke.
“It is him Dragonfeather…” Icerius stated depressingly, as if all hope was gone. “And he stole it… the Gem of the Dragons…” When Icerius stated that, the whole Dragon Council gasped in despair.
“But… that means if we don’t get it back before the Crystal Growth Moon… then all of our land between the rivers shall perish!”
Gwenretoa was right. If the dragons did not get the precious gem back before the Crystal Harvest Moon, their beautiful land between the two silt plentiful rivers would perish, and the dragons would be forced to eat each other to survive.
“ORDER!!!!” Dragonfeather shouted over the panicking dragons while beating her tail on a rock. “We WILL get the gem back! Melonsery! You are Restolu’s son and you visited him just yesterday, correct?”
“Y-yes-yes Dragonfeather, and h-he did ha-have the gem then, h-he told me he w-was st-studying it…” Melonsery stammered quickly and nervously. Dragonfeather stood up and walked out, looking over her scaly shoulder and said, “I doubt I will come back… Crystal… you have always been my most trusted friend and associate… I will trust you to take over my position if I fail to return… Snowestery I would like for you to come with me!” Dragonfeather said, and with that she dismissed the Dragon Council.
“Are you sure you want to do this sister? It is almost certain that you will… not return…” Snowestery asked.
“Yes, come. Let’s go.” Dragonfeather stated bluntly as the two sisters started out the door.
The two sisters flew hundreds of miles, finally arriving at a mountain with a cliff edge in front of a solid rock wall. “In here, and quietly…” Dragonfeather whispered as she walked right through the stone wall, as if it were just an illusion.
“H-H-How did you do that?!” Snowestery was in shock of seeing the last of her sister’s golden tail disappear into the wall.
Dragonfeather’s head reappeared through the wall.
“It’s just an illusion… and I thought I said quietly!” she whisper shouted as Snowestery followed her. They walked down a dark corridor to come upon a torch-lit room.
“Ah! Dragonfeather and Snowestery! So nice of you to drop by… and thank you for shadowizing my body… it’s so much easier to steal what I need to return to material form…” As the voice said this, a shadow of a dragon appeared on the wall holding a brilliant blue gemstone.
“It made sense you stole it! And it makes sense that I’m going to get it back! HEERRRRAAAARRRGGG!!!!!!!!!!” Dragonfeather shouted as she charged at the shadow the moment it materialized and the gem glowed. Dragonfeather ricocheted backwards.
“Dragonfeather, Dragonfeather, Dragonfeather…” the newly materialized red dragon chuckled as he strode forward while Dragonfeather struggled to stand up.
"You will NEVER rule this land Mastochi!” Dragonfeather shouted as her necklace glowed. “Because I! WON’T! LET YOU!!!!!” she shouted with all her heart as her eyes glowed purple along with her claws and horns. She charged at Mastochi. Then there was silence and a blinding light. Dragonfeather lay on the ground, dying.
“Snowestery, take my necklace and the gem and move the dragons to Sky Mountain…” she whispered as she created two small clay figurines. Within minutes of Snowestery’s leave, Dragonfeather passed, and when she did, three feathers from each of her wings fell off and were absorbed into the clay bodies, three in each. The feathers gave them knowledge, willpower and emotion. Dragonfeather’s last breath gave them life and her body disappeared. The dragons retreated to Sky Mountain and the clay figures turned to humans and they now ruled the earth. The dragons created gods for the humans to believe in. The land between the two rivers became Mesopotamia.

TITLE: Solanco Island
NAME: Christopher Natale 6th Grade
MYTH: More than one billion years ago there was nothing except the gods. There were 5 main gods (sky, water, moon, sun, wind) but they really believed in hundreds of minor gods, also. They are polytheistic. They lived ca. 600 B.C. They settled between Providence and Bart-Colerain. They were luckier than other civilizations because most of their resources were already there when they settled. So, all they had to do was use it to their advantage. The god that protects Solanco Island is the sun god, Brighten. Brighten is the second most powerful god; the first is the sky goddess, Victorian. These citizens are so happy they found a safe place to stay because they have traveled from place to place for almost 5 decades! Except they had one problem. They had no houses! So, they took sticks and string, tied the sticks together to make teepees. They wanted a sturdier place to live but the teepees will have to do.
After they got settled they realized that they are starving! They already knew how to grow crops. So, they started to grow them, but they take a long time to grow fully and they are really hungry. Then they figured out what to do. They had to kill the animals, but they didn’t know how to! So, they made what we call a Bow and Arrow. Then they killed the animals and ate them. Then later that night they all got sick! They didn’t know why they got sick but they kept eating it. As we all know, they forgot to cook the food so they got sick, but they didn’t know that. Then one day a villager tripped on a rock and his meat fell in the fire. Food was scarce and he didn’t want to waste any, so he dug out the meat and ate it. The villager loved the meat and told everyone in the village what he found. They all loved it too. Later that day they didn’t get sick, so they kept cooking their food. After that the village thrived. Soon after the cooking discovery they learned how to write cuneiform! Then everything kept advancing. They had the best life anyone can have. And that is how Solanco School District came to be!
| TITLE: The Creation of the Universe
NAME: Kyrian Sowards
AGE: Grade 6
MYTH: Before the dawn of creation, Darkness and Light, were the only beings that existed. These beings, since they were the only beings in the universe, slowly got lonely and longed for children. Then these beings had many sons and many daughters. They named their sons Star, and their daughters Planet. When their sons and daughters grew up, they wanted to have children as well. Alas, they couldn’t mingle because the planets would die, so their parents, Dark and Light, decided to give Planets life and Stars brightness, but eventually the Stars became greedy and took ten or more Planets as their wives. This made Dark and Light angry, and in return they made few planets be able to bear life, this is how solar systems began. Then Dark and Light made certain animals on those certain Planets more intelligent and to grow in size and numbers. One day Dark and Light got angry at each other and started a war, the War of the Universe! Dark made black holes and dark matter, while Light made hypernovas and solar flares! After a while they wanted to stop the war, but their creations did not cease to exist, and have continued fighting for millennium and will continue fighting forever and ever.
