NAME: George Samson

MYTH: In the Beginning there were the great two. One a demon born of evil and hatred. He was fire and rage. This being had no name aside from Chaos. His body was made from fire and molten stone which dripped and cooled creating the land and mountains. He had four arms each was used to aid him in wielding “the blade of eternity” a sword that created both time and man when forged. The beast using his massive wings created the wind and storms. The other was his wife. She was a being of absolute purity born of Chaos’s own blood lust. Her name was Order. She is the loving mother that gave life to all creatures apart from man. Order was beautiful and felt she didn’t belong on the barren wasteland that was the world created by her husband. Also she was bored, she knew she had capabilities she didn’t understand. Order had a natural desire to create. She started with the sea which she made using her tears to flood and cool the planet adding colorful fish and stones. Chaos was displeased with his wife's creation he thought her sea was boring so he added sharks and other nightmarish predators.

Out of fear Order abandoned the sea and fled to the skies aware of her husbands ever watching eyes. Here Order realized she needed a way to hide so she, for the first time, exhaled and produced a cloud and many different feathered creatures now known as birds. This time she tried to please Chaos by adding birds of prey to the mix but still he was not satisfied. Chaos in a fit of rage roared a mighty roar one that shook the earth with the sound of thunder. Chaos filled the skies with smoke and fire that rose from the core of his world. Order couldn't handle the smoke for she now needed to breathe and fell to the ground. To prevent death on impact she softened the hard lifeless rock miles below this led to an unexpected result the combination of pure and evil produced a still life form, plants. Order started to love the land she was designing on earth below the clouds and away from the eternal darkness that lied within the ocean for she was final free to openly play with her gifts of life. Chaos was furious he no longer could hold his wife and decided he was going to hunt her down for as long as it took. He forged the blade of eternity a weapon that could imbue all the powers of time. From its sparks fell fractions of time that once combined with the life giving atmosphere caused by Order’s own love and compassion became man. Man was the first direct connection between Order and Chaos. Order feared man for she could see their need for death and destruction in order to prolong their own mortality. Mankind was a cruel and wicked species that was incapable of compassion for other life. This constant struggle for peace has and may always continue as long as man lives in fear of his own end.

TITLE: The Creation Of The Unicorn

MYTH: Long, long ago, at the beginning of Earth, there was nothing. No water, no trees, no nothing. Until out of nowhere a man and a girl popped out of the ground. They were the first father and daughter and they loved each other very much. Well maybe a little too much because over time they had 200 children, as the creatures of those 200 children they had the right to be King and Queen, the power they had took over their minds and they became evil. They turned their children/minions into dark demons and they were consumed by hatred. All of the minions were like that except one. That one was a boy and he was different from the minions because he was not consumed by hatred, actually when he was born he was colorful. This boy confronted his creators and asked nicely for them to change their evil ways, and then they laughed at him in his face. Then he demanded them to change their ways and after that they became angry and in disgust of the disobedience and threw him all the way up to the sun, he stayed there trapped for 100 years.

Over the next 100 years the boy became less of a man but more of a majestic creature, or even a horse. His body was stretched by the heat waves and his skin was darker because of the heat. It is said that he got his horn because his creators through him by the nose. After those long 100 years that boy became the first Unicorn, he met the Sun god and learned many things stretching from the meaning of life to battle strategies.

Over time the majestic creature learned how to you his horn as a disintegrator and it could disintegrate anything in the universe. Also over the next 100 years the Unicorn never forgot about what his creators did to him and he vowed to turn their world into a happier place. After he the long 100 years he broke out of his imprisonment and steamed toward the couples fortress of darkness to confront his creators. He showed up to their main room and demanded for them to change their ways, the couple again laughed in his face and tried to throw him back to the sun but his horn burned their hands. They angrily told their minions to attack them and the minions and the Unicorn were in a battle for 5 minutes until the Unicorn burned down the minions and banned the couple from time and space. CAUSING THEM TO BE TRAPPED IN A STAR FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY.

TITLE: Sutziansí Creation Story
NAME: Nicky Barracca

MYTH: There was a time, long ago, where all that existed was Darkness, and 3 Gods. These 3 Godsí names were Ansutz, Busutz, and Cinsutz. These 3 fought for hundreds of years, arguing over how the world should be created. There was one day, though, where the fighting became very violent. Busutz had slashed Cinsutz across the chest with a blade, and Cinsutz fell to the ground, dead. Cinsutzís body rumbled, and started glowing a bright light. Then, Cinsutzís body exploded in a flash of blinding light, and his body became what we know today as the sun.

After realizing what had happened, Busutz and Ansutz decided that they would need to decide on something to create the earth, to prevent them from fighting more, and for a place to set the sun. Together, the 2 Gods put their powers to work and created the earth. Together, the created Earth and sky, rivers and beaches, oceans and mountains, grass and dirt. Ansutz created plants to make the earth bright and colorful, and Busutz created animals to roam the earth and to have something inhabiting the earth. Ansutz, fearing the Sun would burn the plants and harm the animals, put the sun high up in the sky, so that it could still shine light and warmth down to earth. Busutz noticed his Animals still dying though, and did not know what to do, so Ansutz helped him out by making all of the plants bear delicious and bright fruits, vegetables, and grains. Satisfied with their creation, Ansutz and Busutz lay to rest for Decades. When they awoke, they noticed that all of Busutzís animals had died, and all of Ansutzís plants had shriveled up and died as well. Ansutz cried at this sight, and his tears became the rain that watered the earth and hydrated the animals. The 2 Gods recreated the earth, and recreated all of the animals and plants, who now had food and water to survive. Satisfied once again, Busutz went to rest, but Ansutz had a different idea in mind. Ansutz wanted someone to love, so he created Humans to roam the earth just as the animals did.

But then, Ansutz saw one of the most horrific things he had ever seen. The Humans he had just created did not wish to love or praise him, but instead started taking all of the fruits and vegetables, and slaughtered the animals. Ansutz wanted to stop them but all was too late. Ansutz tried his best to create the animals again, but did not know how to. All Ansutz could create were creatures that could become animals, but had similar appearances as a man. Thus, Ansutz created Apes, Monkeys, and Gorillas. Ansutz had worried, and feared that when Busutz awoke, he would attack Ansutz. Ansutz, being a weak fighter, worried about this and feared he would die, so he killed Busutz in his sleep. Busutzís body exploded and became the moon. Absurd pondered putting the moon in the sky, but feared that Cinsutz and Busutz would still fight, so Ansutz created night and put the moon there instead of the sky. Ansitz grew lonely, as the humans could not see him in his physical form. Ansutz lay to rest and became the stars in the night, and never awoke again.
NAME: Caleb Tiemann

MYTH: In the beginning there was Darkness and Hetapo. What was thought by Hetapo became as is so among the other planets were earth the small colorless chunk of rock he desired as a playpen. Among his first thoughts was the sun but this was too bright so he only let him shine half of the day. The next ďdayĒ as he was floating above the land he thought that all the world was too empty so he created animals, but they all died due to lack of food water shelter and air. So Hetapo sent a gigantic flood to whisk away all of the corpses and as the world was drying it was moldable so Hetapo created all the mountains, waterfalls, lakes, caves, and natural beautiful things of the world. Then he created the dome, a sort of lid to the earth it made all the sky turn blue and thus he flooded the entire world and waited 10 years for the world to go to where he wanted the he started time.

Time was a beautiful creature always having the worlds in her palms creating the streams of the fundamental named after herself just for fun.

NAME: Alex Ho

MYTH: In the beginning there was only fighting, creatures from unknown origins fought for control of the universe. Over time they wore themselves out and eventually the fight turned out to be a draw. Yet still, a winner was decided. A creature of intelligence didnít fight. He exclaimed, ďThose who fought, why do you fight? Was it because you were bored or wanted control? I shall give you a purpose of fighting!Ē The creature named himself Fate. Fate created a world in which was divided into 500 layers. All the creatures found themselves at the bottom most layer. They found themselves trapped with little space to settle and farm. Fate descended upon the creatures and explained that they would have to fight a certain monster in order to gain access to the 2nd layer of the world. Being that they needed the space the creatures started to settle a little. They set up the minimal to reforge their long worn weapons.

Soon after many days, they set out to find the monster that was hidden in the floor. They found themselves confronted by a dragon. They quickly dismembered it as they had bows. They shot out its wings and let the brutes dice the body up. The chunks soon became transformed into living creatures. The named it man. Man was a bit smaller and more agile than the creatures and they were intelligent enough for the creatures to teach them speech. They quickly gave them the materials to settle and forged weapons. Man was much better at forging and crafting than the creatures so they were able to fit in with the creatures. They returned to their temporary settlement to see a odd stone structure in the middle of the settlement. The stone was inscribed with the commands of teleport and (insert floor number here). The creatures were curious to see if it actually worked and they were teleported to the 2nd layer which was a serene plain with hills in the distance. It was ideal for farming and settlements and was much more vast than the first floor.

The creatures were ecstatic and wanted to see what rewards they would get for beating the 2nd layer creature. They set up a permanent settlement and named it Selmburg. The 2nd layer had a lot of water and mineral resources. They were able to mine ore and craft better weapons. They set out for the 2nd layer creature about a month later. The 2nd layer creature was a gigantic steel golem. It was slow and was incredibly resistant to weapons, but it was easily predictable and wasnít able to inflict much damage to the fighters. After long hours of fighting, they managed to beat it. They were given a scroll with the concept of fire and armour. The greediness of the creatures overcame them. Soon they were able to clear floors extremely fast, but Fate had other plans.

After a century of fighting, creature and man reached the 400th layer, but what awaited them was an instant creature fight. A skull reaper of massive proportions with razor sharp scythes, legs, and tails. It immediately attacked and slain most of the creatures. Man was able to defeat the reaper but not without many casualties. Only 10 creature fighters remained from the 300 they had. Knowing that they were going to die soon, the creatures gave man a heart, a mind, and their knowledge. Man respected their gifts as they watch the creatures fade away from giving them their gifts. Man, with a refined purpose, forged bonesteel weapons from the reapers remains. Bonesteel was much sharper and durable than the weapons they had. Using their gifts from the creature and reaper, they began clearing layers again. Their progress was much slower than due to layer creatures being much more powerful. Man struggled through the hardships of the layers, but eventually got to the 500th layer. Fate descended from above and congratulated them for their achievement. Fate then collapsed the 500 layer world and formed a spherical world named Earth. He set man to live on Earth and eventually formed into our society today.

MYTH: Long ago, there lived two large trees that grew in the heavens. On one tree grew seven flowers, while twelve flowers grew on the other. In order to fill the universe with life and light, the flowers made a sacrifice to make the stars and planets.

The seven flowers on the same tree each dropped a petal, and the seven petals joined together to create the sun. Then the remaining twelve flowers each dropped a petal, except for three. The nine petals turned into the nine planets in the solar system. The remaining three flowers fell from the tree and landed on Earth. One flower created the trees, flowers, and plants. Another created the all of the animals and wildlife. The last flower created the first humans.

The sun, after seeing how lush and beautiful the Earth was, longed to go nearer to Earth, for it loved to watch the animals and humans and admire all of the greenery. However, when the sun came too close, the plants shriveled and browned, and everything was beginning to die of dehydration. Seeing this, the sun became so sad that it started to cry. When the sun cried, its tears fell on Earth as rain and filled the oceans, lakes, and rivers with water. Once Earth was filled with water, the plants and animals, as well as humans, began to thrive again.

Even though the sun couldnít come very close to the earth, it kept the earth close by, making it orbit around itself, so that the sun could always watch over Earth. As time passed by, the sun saw that one half of Earth was always shrouded in darkness. Therefore, the sun gave Earth the moon, so that humans would have some light once nighttime came.

How the Earth, Sun, and Moon Came to Be

MYTH: A lone time ago there was nothing but utter darkness and silence. Out of that bitter darkness a single light was born. This beautiful being was called Ilios. Ilios grew to be so bright that she lit the entire sky. But soon she became lonely, so Ilios created an equally bright male companion whom she named Solis. Solis and Ilios fell in love. Their love for each other was so powerful that they gave birth to millions of stars. The bleak sky was now full of light and happiness.

Centuries went by and one of the star children, Luna, began to fall in love with Solis. Loyal to Ilios, Solis rejected her feelings. Luna was heartbroken and became full of rage and hatred. The star lost all of her bright glow and love for anything, with only evil consuming her body. Luna became obsessed with revenge and started to plot her motherís murder. She fashioned sword of pure evil.

One day, Ilios was by herself creating new star children. Luna crept up behind her mother and plunged the sword into Iliosí heart. Ilios burst into golden flames and then her body turned into a dull sphere of dirt and ashes. Satisfied, Luna went to find Solis. Solis was horrified when Luna proudly told him of Iliosí death, and how now they could be together. Disgusted, he cried tears of sorrow over the corpse of his beloved wife. Solisí tears filled the sphere with bright blue water. But the corpse kept trying to move on to the afterlife, so Solis cast a spell to keep Ilios rotating around him forever.

As for Luna, he punished his daughter by having her rotate endlessly around Ilios to remind her of her awful crime. Eventually, Luna began to regret her gruesome actions and felt extremely guilty.

The daughter cried for many days and many nights. Her bloody tears landed on Ilios and out sprouted mankind. They wandered the empty lands hungry and vulnerable.

Noticing the poor humans and pitying them, Luna thought of an idea. She decided to help mankind in an attempt to apologize and honor Ilios. Due to this change of heart, some of Lunaís brightness returned. She created numerous green plants, rolling hills, and trees that bore the sweetest of fruit. Man was grateful and thanked Luna for the food. The humans called their home Mother Earth.

Solis was shocked at Lunaís kindness and return of gentle nature. The pair reconciled and soon fell in love. Solis and Luna worked together to help Mother Earth thrive with life and beauty. Luna birthed wondrous creatures to fill the Earth with and for Man to have companions. Solis provided light for half of the day and Luna provided life for the other half. Solis and Luna became known as the Sun God and Moon Goddess to mankind. They ruled Mother Earth and the Heavens in harmony and peace for eternity.

A New Beginning

MYTH: There was once only darkness and a cookie and a girl named Susana. Susana was a-sexual so she gave birth to 11 children. The 11 children grew relentless of standing in the heavens so they decided to slaughter their mother. Susana, however, had other plans. The 11 children were imprisoned before the attack. Years passed, and Susana overheard her children speaking of a sacred object said to be expandable into a world of unimaginable things. Susana thought this would bring peace between her and her sons. Susana spoke to her offspring and they came to a compromise. Susana would release the sons and the sons would help her search far and wide for this sacred object. All 12 gods brought along an object- Ishtar brought a rock. Taniks brought an essence of the afterlife. Skolas brought a jar of water. Aksis brought a flame. Atheon brought a clock. Oryx brought a plant. The last 6 children brought brown pebbles.

The 12 searched the deep gulfs of darkness for the sacred object. During their travels, the 12 discover objects with 2 legs and 2 arms and a head the size of a melon. Mother Susana decided to name these objects sentinels because they were able to understand emotions and feelings. This sense of feeling spread off on the 12. The mother, Susana, felt grief and decided to apologize to her sons for imprisoning them. The sons were sorry for trying to slaughter her. This made the humans happy. But there was a downside to this new ability. Pain, anger, stress, anxiety. Ironically, this angered the 12. The 12 grew weary and restless. They plotted to kill the sentinels. All of the 12 used the objects they brought to end the sentinels. They attempted to fight back with stone and dirt. Their attempts were pathetic. The battle lasted minutes. The 12 felt free of all of their emotions they had felt just moments ago. They slept for days in the battlefield. Then, the 12 set off once again. They searched for hundreds of years with no findings. Was the sacred object a myth?

Finally, Aksis found the sacred object. It appeared to be a cookie. One of the 12 came to the conclusion that it would be a good idea to smash their object into the cookie. The objects merged. Something began to happen and the object began to glow. It became so bright it lit the sky and the darkness around them began to fade. Suddenly, the object spread out into a planet and the ground was created. The 11 dropped their objects on the ground in awe. The other 11 objects turned into certain objects of the new earth. Clouds, weather, humans. Then, Skolasís water from his jar sank into the ground. The clouds in the sky immediately began to dump water onto the ground below. An ocean began to form. The 12 did not know how to swim and were not immortal so they drowned in the ocean. Some say you can still hear their cries underwater in our oceans today. THE END!

MYTH: In the beginning, there was only darkness. Then, out of the darkness, 2 orbs were created. XingJing the orb of good, and Halgar the orb of bad. The two orbs fought each other, but XingJing won and decided that there must be a source of light. XingJing create the Metradame, a ball of light that shined on the Earth. The Earth was filled with light and peace for centuries. Then, one day, Halgar was thinking in the underworld and came up with a plan. He would disguise himself as one of XingJng’s beautiful creatures. Halgar decided that he would disguise himself as a Red Fox. Halgar set off into the plains of Earth, and saw the Metradame. He spoke, “There is no balance in this ball of light, with good comes bad.” Halgar decided that if you stay in the light of the Metradame for too long, your skin would burn. XingJing notices his people’s skins were being burned, and he suspects that Halgar is disguised as one of his animals.

Luckily for XingJing, Halgar didn’t realize that all of XingJing’s creatures were of light colors. XingJing quickly notices a deep, dark red for that didn’t fit his color spectrum. Halgar, not realizing that XingJing had already noticed him, kept applying negative properties to the Metradame. Halgar made it so that if you look at the Metradame for too long, you become blind.

Furius, XingJing banishes his brother back to the underworld. Halgar, not expecting XingJing to notice his plan, tries to figure out where he went wrong with his plan. XingJing saw that the Metradame now had negative properties, and was crushed. The Metradame was like a son to him, which is why it was later named sun.

XingJing realized that without shelter his people would eventually burn into a crisp, so he created the moon. The time that the moon was out would be the time where his creatures took a rest from the burning and would sleep peacefully. XingJing died many centuries later. But what XingJing didn’t know was that Halgar managed to create one more curse before he was banished back into the underworld. It was that when XingJing died, all humans and creatures after him would sin and make mistakes and the world would no longer be perfect.

Pacem and Bellum

MYTH: A long time ago there was a bird named Pacem. She lived alongside Bellum, her husband. They were always flying throughout the universe but eventually became bored. They decided to create earth using one of each of their feathers. They also created Cupiditas, or Man for short.

Man had nothing to do so Pacem created the plants and animals, but Man had no use for them, so Bellum created Death. When Man heard about Death, he started to hunt and farm so that way he could survive. Man built houses and many other great structures but became very lonely. The two birds saw how lonely he was and created Beneficentia, or Woman for short.

Man and Woman lived together and lived together in harmony and had many kids. After many more years, they had built an entire civilization. Man and Woman began to forget their creators so as a punishment, Bellum created Chaos who wreaked havoc across the Earth. After a while, Pacem heard of what Bellum had done and banished him to the underworld.

Pacem unable to convince Bellum to get rid of Chaos decided to go and rule the heavens to watch over her children. Since no one was ruling the Earth, Death and Chaos had a Child named Deus. Deus was created to eventually rule both heaven and the underworld. After Pacem heard of this, she created Pugnator to slay Deus. When Deus got to the heavens, Pugnator was ready. Deus was searching for Pacem when Pugnator snuck up behind him and beheaded him with his ax. Pacem sent Pugnator down to earth to rule and protect her children. He was not as giving as Pacem and demanded one human heart per year or he would spread disease throughout the Earth that would kill everyone.

Russian Myth

MYTH: At first there was nothing. That nothing was fled with small pieces of a woman, after many decades the pieces floated to be perfectly aligned together. The Woman came alive for a mere second, but she had the power to create the Earth, Sun, Moon, and water of the earth. She then broke apart again. The process repeated and when she formed again she made life. She made animals forest and people. She also made the seasons but she accidently made winter last to long. When she broke again her hands and feet fell to the earth. The Woman would never be able to be complete again. The 4 limbs of The Woman fell and became gods.

The Woman could never reconnect and became the stars in the sky, but she was always able to see what happened on Earth. The hands became male and the feet were woman. Their names were Zarya, Peter, Valeria, and Nikolie. The right (Zarya and Peter and left(Nikolie and Valeria) sides did not like each other. They both settled in Russia but they split it from north to south. The north side went to the rights and the lefts the south. The north was cold and filled of forest, but had lots of rich ore and wildlife. The south was warmer and had more fields, but had little food for the population. Each side wanted their civilization to be more successful than the other. Each god trained the people of the land to be stronger than the other. Zarya and Peter taught the people how to find food and hunt wildlife first, While Nikolie and Valeria taught the people to make farms. For the first century both sides did not bother the other and started to grow. Both sides did want to have resources from the other side, but the gods did not allow it.

One day a southern russian crossed over to the forest side of Russia. He stole many types of food and wood. This angered Zarya and Peter, so they planned to start a war on the south. Nikolie heard about the bad new and knew he had to prepare an army. The north side had more hide and ores to create armor and spears than the south, but the south had a special animal to help them in battle. Horsed roamed freely in the south side. The south also had more population, but the gods could not train all of the men since there was too much for each to learn. After a decade both sides were ready. They meet in the center of Russia. The battle lasted for a full year of both civilizations. Many lives were lost and the woman watched in agony as her creations were in war. She decided to stop the war and sent more parts of her body down to earth. The pieces fell directly on Nikolie and Valeria. There was so much power in the star that it sent The Nikolie and valeria to the center of the Earth. They could not escape and became the god and goddess of the new underworld.

Peter and Zarya decided that one has to rule the heavens and to other help the people more. Zarya had an arm wrestle with Peter to figure out who rules what. Zarya ended up winning the arm wrestle and became goddess of the heavens. Peter stayed on Earth and told all the southern Russians to leave Russia. They listened and went south even more and became the Mongolian and Chinese Civilizations. Peter and Zarya helped lead the Russians to take all the land in Russia and become the strongest Civilization ever. The strength and guidance of Zarya and Peter made Russians known as some of the most feared and deadly civilization ever.

MYTH: In the beginning there was nothing then from that nothingness came a god. This god is known as creator. He created everything we see, hear, smell, touch, and feel. He created the tallest mountains and the deepest canyons. He created the oceans and the prairies and the land and sky. He also had a daughter named kuru she was sent to the sky and is know what we know as the moon. He also had a son and named him kuma and sent him into the sky to become the sun. The creator was happy with this and went into a deep sleep.

The world was peaceful for man many years. Then the day came when kuru made hundreds of daughters and had them live with her in the sky. She realized that the the sky was to bright and could not be seen from the ground and this made her mad. At the same time kuma was making animals to populate the ground. Kuru went to ask kuma if he would stop being so bright. He said no he simply could not and that enraged kuru. So when kuma was napping she sent her favorite daughter, mizu, to slay kuma’s favorite animal a black bear named kumakiri when kuma woke up to find that his favorite animal was dead he created creatures who could speak and had great signs of intelligence.

TITLE: Creator of the Universe

MYTH: It started as darkness, there was nothing but giant spheres of rocks floating away. And out of one of these rocks came out a man-like figure. His name was Optimum. He had knowledge that man today didn't even know existed. He felt empty as if there was nobody like him. He looked around fearing the darkness surrounding him. He grew impatient for something to happen so he created things without even knowing how. He made planets out of the sphere shaped rocks. For some he added grass, water, and landforms with the snap of his fingers. And others he kept the way they are. He wanted to see his creation so he made the sun. He then saw the beauty of his creations, and spun the planets because only one side he could see and realized it would get too hot.

But something still felt empty. He needed something to enjo his creation along with him. He grabbed a handful of mud and threw it out of sorrow. He was going to walk away until he heard a voice. He turned around and stared as the man stood up in confusion. Optimum was so relieved and happy about this discovery. so he grabbed more mud and created nine more men, each one looking differently. Optimum was very happy with this, he finally had something to enjoy his creation.

He noticed that the men were hungry so he made animals and many different kinds of plants and created predators to challenge the men. He let this go on for five days. He decided it was time to come down. So he flew down, defying gravity, and astonishing the men. He let the men know of his story, about how he made them and the world. He only asked for one thing from the men. And that one thing was to worship and praise him. He was going to go on his way, but before he did, he gave each man a gift. Each man received one female to care for. The men were pleased and thanked him for the gift. He flew away with the men and women watching. He looked down at the men, looking so happily with their lover, this made Optimum happy as well.

Three weeks have passed and Optimum was angry at the fact that none of the men and women had worshipped him at all. He created three men who were very strong and powerful. Optimum ordered the men to kill a but one man an one woman. The men did so by creating sickness, illness, and disease across the world. They hid some in bugs, plants, and other objects. The men and women were scared and confused by the tragedies. One man and one woman would die each day for nine days, leaving only one man and woman. He gave the last two standing the names Sindile for the man, meaning survivor, and Amari for woman, meaning miracle. Optimum had felt regret for what he had done and tried to reverse what he had done, but it was irreversible. He didn't want to end his creation so quickly so he created children. Optimum made a promise to never attempt a punishment like that t them again.
NAME: Trinity C

MYTH: In the beginning of 2015, the Earth was peaceful. There were very little conflicts, and almost everyone was happy. That was until the Gods of Chaos,Left Shark, Netflix n' Chill, Drake's dancing, The Dress, and What's Good Miley cast their spawns across the world. Most humans gave in, and enjoyed the trending spawns, others found them as an irritating burden, and wanted them gone.

From that generation of spawns, known as memes, another generation arose in 2016. By then, the world had gotten more than they had anticipated. D##m Daniel, Harambe, Evil Kermit, Arthur's Fist, Ken Bone, Petty Joe Biden, and the Trump v. Hillary Election debate phased through. The world was thrown into chaos. More and more memes fell to Earth, causing controversy and destruction. They surged through the whole year, infecting almost everyone with their dank diseases. There were riots and fires, mass destruction and fists fights, protests and cowards fighting online.

As the years passed, the original Gods of Memes disappeared. No one knows where they had gone off to, but no one really even noticed. They disappeared without a single trace, and not even their children could find them. Some could finally live in peace now. But, society soon grew weary and upset with the passing memes, hating how irrelevant they were now. They were outcast by the people, pushed to the side. Soon, they disappeared as well.

One day, the people called out to the new memes that kept appearing,

"Please leave us alone," they cried, using as many emojis as possible, "we don't want you on our Earth anymore, fam!"

With that, the memes had come up with an agreement for themselves and the people: As long as a meme was trending anywhere, it would stay. Then, as soon as people no longer took interest, it would leave to join its trashed family. The meme would never come back unless it became traditional for a certain day. One of the lucky memes was #thanksgivngclapback.

To this offer, the people agreed, and rejoiced that the memes would no longer have a permanent stay. Now, the Earth was back to living in somewhat peace. Everyone was slightly more calm now, and no one had problems with the memes anymore.
