The Birth of Atia & Atia

There was once an emperor who wanted an heir. Loving his wife so dearly, the thought of taking another seemed out of the question. They had been married for many years and still, despite their efforts, she had yet to produce a child. The Emperor was .................................................................................................................................................the countries and surrounding islands would be uprooted in chaos in a fight for a new emperor to take control.

The Emperor was hesitant, but agreed to the terms ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................before the night was out.

The gods had had but one ................................................................Himeros, the god of sexual desire. A child would be born, half-god, half-human, ........................................................................................................the land below them. Having seen no other way, the Emperor had agreed to this, and that night, when his wife lay waiting for him in his bedchambers, ...............

Surprised by this sudden side of her husband, the wife was hesitant, ........................................................................................................ night, the god only leaving when he seemed satisfied.

The collars broke and the collared were returned home.

Furious and unconsolable, Atia banned all boats from ever venturing onto the shores of the island and locked herself up on it to grieve. ................................................................................................................................................................................................................ fists to the island's floor, sobbing and raging for her losses. And with the island being weakened .......................... and no god to keep it afloat--for it had been an island forged of sex and magic and ................................................................................................................................................................................................................ fleeing to safety, Atia could do nothing but watch helplessly as the sea swallowed it whole.

But time passes strangely for gods, and when she returned to the mainland, it had been so long that the people there though she had abandoned them. And so they shunned her, save for a small handful of loyalists who always knew she would return, for their beloved goddess would never abandon them. And though time had passed ................................................................................................................................................................................................................

........................................................................................................ followers patience for just a little longer and promised them a land of safety and comforts as they had not known, a land where they would be free to worship freely and be her most favored children.

And so, taking the bits dirt she had managed to save from her father's isle before it vanished, Atia breathed life to a new island.

Yet still it was not enough. She could see it was still weak, for she herself had been weakened by the rejection of her people. And so she went to ............................................................ aid. And as they too felt the loss of their missing one, they agreed to aid his child.

Left with no other choice, Atia agreed grudgingly, but demanded no god give too much so it remained as much hers as was possible. Thus it came to be that no god gave more than a drop, but many ...................................................... the island.
