Time- Emit the Weaver of Cosmic Threads 18"
There was an era similar to the depths of an inkwell, when existence had not yet manifested and the strands of time were loose ends. Darkness clung to this dimension like an ambivalent pool of sorcery until a being known as Emit emerged. Emit was part of an order known as the opal dragons, who spun the threads of time with light and fire. They were shifters of sand, revolvers of gears, pillars of flame that lit the infinite abyss, and Emit was the last of their kind. Emit’s cosmic claws tore through the jet black curtain creating a rift of time in which this universe exists. Her scales shimmered a radiant mix of colors similar to the opal for which her order was named. It seemed the entire light spectrum she wove glistened uniquely with each scale. With a flick of her tail, she scattered many of those brilliant scales to the bounds of the newly created time rift. A spout of flame followed, cauterizing these scales into our stars. With that bit of fire the fibers of her being were woven into our existence and her mind linked to the consciousness of all life. Her thoughts are the momentum that turns the wheel of time in which this dimension lies. We are the spokes of this wheel, forged from iron to steel to create oneness by Emit’s flux. When we are idle Emit’s energy weighs on our mental state like a block of osmium, when time is short her presence feels like the breeze in its passing. Our thread is born from the same loom and Emit is the spindle. In this we are bound to each other’s realities, Emit tears open new ones looking to escape parts of herself and to find the black hole which swallowed her kin, and we build clocks in hopes of creating our own linear time. A struggle against biogenic quicksand in which we are all devoured by the infinite void.
