Sídhí Beginnings

The home world of Sídhí

One quick bit of news before I attempt to become a storyteller of grand proportions. LOL

As you know, Raphael (mega-singer songwriter) Thumped me the other day announcing that he found his lifeMate. Well, I have it on good authority that Raphael doesn't know who the lucky girl is! She hasn't come forward and he doesn't want to announce that she hasn't. Can you imagine the reaction of millions of die-hard fans from every valley around the world? He'd be swarmed with women swearing their synth crystal sang for him, naming him their lifeMate.

The second bit of news is a bit more disturbing. Reports from London, France (Earth) and San Francisco, California (Earth) indicate Elf Hunts are on the rise. Historically, hunts targeted mundanes and vampires, capturing mundanes for slaves and killing the vampires.

The majority of elf ruled valleys outlawed Elf Hunts years ago, no doubt due to vampire's retaliation methods. Vampires hunted down Elf Hunters then killed them and all of the hunter's blood kin, a very effective warning.

I'll keep you updated on the Elf Hunts.

On to the requested history lesson, hopefully it won't bore you to tears. Please, let me know if it does.

Why are Sídhí different from mundanes? Why do they have seven senses and not five? Why do they heal rapidly and stay eternally young?

Well, I hope to answer your questions over a series of brief articles.

Tens of thousands of years ago, there was a highly advanced civilization on a world named Sídhí. Technology so advanced modern scientist would either scratch their heads or call them higher beings. Unfortunately, highly advanced did not mean smarter.

Like Earth, Sídhí had a fixed amount of natural resources. In their arrogance, they ignored the warning signs as they drilled deeper for oil, carved huge swaths out of the soil searching for coal, air became thick and putrid, and unfiltered water undrinkable.

Scientists screamed warnings, but no one listened until it was too late.

Governments rationed fossil fuels. As people became desperate for fuel to heat their homes entire forests were cut down in a handful of years.

War broke out between the nations, each blaming the other. War hastened the inevitable. Every drop, every crumb of natural fuel/gem/metal was cut from the world. All that remained above ground was rapidly used up or in storage facilities.

A scientist, whose real name has been long forgotten, proposed a plan. He believed energy could be created with no waste by-product unlike nuclear energy. He argued pure energy should expand exponentially (grow by itself) and not expend energy unless triggered.

It sounded like a hair-brained theory, but it was their best hope. Each nation agreed upon a cease-fire.

Scientists from around the world came together. They started-out using the original scientist's research. Safety precautions grew lax as they became desperate.

After a time, they created a substance they nicknamed, synth crystal. To say synth crystal was unique implied simplicity; it was such a feeble description for the most powerful energy ever created. At least the scientists all believed it was power beyond anyone's wildest dreams.

Until next time - Jodie B. Cooper
