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.


13. Sanctus

Three years later…

Statera is full of whispers as Nova stands at the church altar wearing her crown and wearing royal gender-neutral robes in white. Her hair is tied back in a traditional braid and her smile is the most beautiful thing in the room. Not a soul whispers, not a soul speaks. They don’t even know that the law has been changed. The moonchildren and sun children of Statera have no clue what grand change is fixing to befall their kingdom.

         In Statera marriage is considered sacred, the laws set by the sun and the moon themselves state that marriage is between the sun and the moon only. This is because the moon goddess is the mother of the females and the sun god is the father of the males. It was the way things were always done. The sun and the moon deities created Statera, created the balance between light and day, white and black. Created two people, two genders, and one marriage, one union. To keep the balance. When Nova was born her father tried everything to keep the balance and since Selena was his wife, she obeyed. Not because she wanted too but because she had too. It’s the law. Legolas watches his daughter, the kineen. The former princet. The child that despite all his trouble, still came out. Still destroyed the balance. It’s something he can never forgive.

         Priestess Celestial comes out of hiding. She knows a grand moment is about to happen. It’s been 21 years since the sun and the moon both joined hands in the sky to watch the birth of one who would destroy and create balance. Celestial turns her face to the sun and smiles, she faces the moon and nods. She gets down on both knees and folds her hands to say a sacred prayer.

“Mother moon and father sun, the time has come, it’s been 1000 years since you two created Statera. Today marks the day that an era will end and a new era will begin.” Celestial gets up and walks to the chapel. She slips in the back and watches as Kineen Nova takes the hand of Lady Ava. The sacred marriage rites are beginning. Celestial listens to the whispers. People are murmuring their displeasure, others seem to welcome the change. One comment Celestial takes to heart.

“It’s time for a change. Time for the days of the past to go back to the past. It’s time to embrace the future of Statera and I believe Kineen Nova has accomplished this change.”

         Nova takes the hands of Ava and stares into her entrancing eyes. Ava lowers her gaze and blushes. They turn to the priest. He will perform the sacred rites. He begins but it’s a ceremony none have ever witnessed before.

“A daughter of the sun and a daughter of moon shall today join as one. May the blue glow of the moon and the orange glow of the sun embrace these two dear ones. Not only today do they marry, today their souls join as one. This bond cannot be broken. For marriage is eternal. Do you still want to marry Ava?”

Nova replies. “yes.” The priest nods and turns to Ava. “Do you still want to marry Nova?” Ava’s heart skips a beat when she replies “Yes.”

         The priest lowers his head and concentrates. Then he looks up at the sun and the moon in the sky before saying “It is done”

As Nova and Ava begin their new life together, high in the sky visible to all appears a rainbow. The colors and the symbol signify the end of one era and the beginning of another. This time this era won’t end. This time it celebrates diversity. Celebrates freedom to choose who you want to be. Freedom to be yourself.
