Chapter Nine: A Chat Between The Ophelia and The Sun Goddess

Delirium, Goddess of Destruction and Madness. The youngest of the Elders. She used to be Delight, the personification of Harmony and Happiness, but changed to Delirium long ago for reasons unclear (you think she did it to prove that anyone can assert freedom from Endless). All who look upon her see a child who can create anything she imagines and warp reality, including a person's memories, added with the fact that she can destroy anything just by looking at it. It is implied that her delirium is partly a defensive mechanism from knowing too damn much (more than anyone, including her siblings). Apparently she knows secrets that even you or the other Elders don't know. For example, while Endless knows everything that was, is, could or will be, Delirium knows everything else; everything that wasn't, isn't, couldn't or won't be. It's unwise to ignore what she says - nearly as unwise as listening too closely, so when she says something is going to happen it's wise to almost always listen.

With all of this speculated/known about her there is no wonder why neither you nor your siblings challenge her authority whenever she rises to the occasion, but her usual crazy and insane demeanor makes her incredibly calm and obedient to whatever you or the others tell her to do.

Delirium usually acts as a messenger between the elders when they don't feel like talking to each other directly. While most gods would hate this job, the crazy girl revels in the fact that she can go wherever she wants, whenever she wants, because being a messenger, gives her the power to travel through different planes, dimensions, domains, and universes, without being questioned.

Today, she was having her routine tea, with her older sister Celestia. The two would get together ever week and chat about non-important things, like what Delirium did in the last twenty-four hours, which is surprisingly a lot and it seems to Celestia that today would be no different.

The two of them sat together at a table in the middle of Celestia's room. They would have been in the dining room, but those who look upon Delirium often become mad at listening to her babble for too long. So they often have their sessions in Celestias room.

The two sat in silence for a few awkward moments. Delirium sat twisting her her green and blur hair with her finger as she began humming a unfamiliar tune, while Celestia slowly levitating her teacup and taking a sip every so often. "So." She said breaking the silence and gathering the attention of her guest. "How was your day, Delirium?"

"My day was just FANTASTIC! Thanks for asking!" Delirium said enthusiastically taking a sip of her tea. "I had the most wonderful conversation with an awesome squirrel today. I call him Senior Fuzzybottoms." She said with glee. Celestia couldn't help but smile at Deliriums childlike nature.

"Is that so? What did you and Mister Senior Fuzzybottoms talk about?" Celestia asked actually sounding interested about the conversation she had with the animal.

"The usual, It was mostly about Squirrel Politics. I heard there might be a war between the Sciuridae and the Accipitrinae, or Squirrel vs Hawks if you want to be technical." She said shrugging her shoulders and taking another sip.

Celestia raised an eyebrow as the possibility of war between animals. "War between animals? That completely insane... but this is Delirium I'm talking about. She tends to warp reality just by entering into the room. Can it really be possible that she gave intelligence to an animal or is this one of her infamous warnings?" Celestia asked herself as she steadily finished her cup of tea. She levitated the teapot and began to fill her cup up again. "Do you want some more Tea?"

Delirium nodded her head furiously. "Yes Please." Upon finishing her own cup, Celestia began to fill up her sisters. As she did so Delirium looked out the window and began to speak. "Oh yeah, Senior Fuzzybottoms also mentioned something else."

"And what was that?" Celestia said as she finished pouring her sister tea.

"He happened to tell me of a man." Delirium said using telekinesis to levitate the cup and drink

"A man...and pray tell, who was this man?"

"While not the man he once was, he is still a man non the less. ‎He was there from the beginning. A power that exist at the end of all things. He walked with our gods and shaped our deepest beliefs. An executioner at the gallows. A lone hunter on a pale horse. A soldier on the battlefield. A criminal in the shadows. Fields become burial grounds in his wake. Every great atrocity, every feeble passing, he stands witness. In their strife, in their revolutions and in their wars, he has left his mark. And in the end, his will be the last face we'll all see." Delirium said looking directly at Celestia, waiting to see a change in any facial features. Yet, saw nothing as Celestia was known to have the greatest poker face among the elders.

"I see..."

"You should. He was here, in this room not too long ago. And ooh have we've missed him so."

"We?"

"Me. I. We're all the same. Tell me how is the Reaper Man faring, these days?" Delirium said taking a sip of her tea.

"I have no idea what your talking about." Celestia said taking a sip of her tea and closing her eyes.

"Celestia."

"Hm?" Celestia said acting coy.

"I see your missing a statue in your garden." Delirium said pointing to her side.

When Celestia opened her eyes, she found herself in the Cantorlot Garden with Delirium pointing to an empty spot in the garden, where you used to stand. Nearby guards and Civilians looked at the two of them in awe as two of the most powerful beings in the universe just appeared before them from thin air. Most fell to ground in worship almost instantly. While not in fear of Celestia but in fear of Delirium as many have heard stories of the crazy girls enjoys making other beings around her insane, if angered in anyway. "I don't under-"

"Tosah! How long are you going to keep it up? Where's Letum?"

"You're not going to let it go are you?"

"Nope!"

Celestia let out a deep sigh and took another sip of her tea. "He's in Ponyville."

"With Elements of Harmony?" Celestia nodded her head she continued drinking. "Ohh! I wonder if he's met my granddaughter!" Delirium said clasping her hands together. "Oh I simply have go and see him. Thank you sister for the tea. I expect to see you again next week at my place. Tootalooo!" Delirium said giving her older sister a small wave as her body quickly warped into herself disappearing into thin air, leaving Celestia alone in the garden.

"Whoops..."
