Roughly translated to against all traditions...

King Legolas and Queen Selena are dieties representing the sun and the moon. In their world; known as Statera (meaning balance) each daughter is born representing the moon. She is given a moon name (Diana, Artemis...etc.) Each son is born representing the sun (Apollo, Helios...etc.)

Legolas and Selena are expecting a son, due to the fact that heat radiates from the unborn child...

For the Gender competition.


5. Rex nec regina


The palace was abuzz with laughter as Selena ventured into Nova’s nursery to dress her daughter for her first royal debut. Her first birthday party. A celebration where Statera would be introduced to the future king. A king that would probably end up not having a queen at his side. What Nova’s parents didn’t know was that no matter how hard they tried to create balance. It was too late. The balance was undone.

         Legolas enters the nursery and sees Selena holding the child dressed in golden robes. Traditional robes for a son’s first birthday. He kisses his daughter’s cheek and whispers.

“It would be nice if we could show you to the world. But the balance must stay the same. We must be traditional. I love you little princess and don’t ever forget that.”

         Legolas helps Selena onto the dais. Above the dais hangs a moon intertwined with a sun. Surrounding this union are silver stars. Selena holds Nova in her arms and holds her up to be seen by the royal people. Dressed in golds and silvers. One moonchild is dressed in gold colors. She looks out of place but at least she’s embracing the change of the world. Selena holds Nova up and the people bend their knees. Legolas clears his throat and says.

“His Royal Highness Prince Nova. A king not a queen. He will keep the balance. He will rule strong and true just like his father.” Legolas flashes a fake smile. Selena hides her daughter away and the world doesn’t learn their secret quite yet.
