Elias by ivy77
'An ornate clear ceiling allowed the golden light of the shield to penetrate the garden so that everything was immersed in a golden hue. Low shade trees fragmented the light but refracted it in their shining leaves producing mass prism and starburst effects in the foiliage. Tiny incandescent starflowers dimmed and brightened, in synch with the fluctuations of the shield's harmonics.'An excerpt from Elias' chapter from the Change of Tides project.
