Masters in the Making
"When you stare at a mirror, do you know what stares back?"
To say that Onyx is complicated would be an understatement. First impressions vary wildly, from coy and detached to overly emotional. The former is a defense against telekinetic outbursts, usually triggered by the latter. His attire ranges from minimalist goth to modern witch, and all shades in between. Like the rest of his school, there’s something other about him that makes it difficult for him to get along terribly well with people. But he can admire them from a distance or through his lense. Despite having lived a sheltered life in the lap of luxury, the magical world hasn’t been as fortunate to him. Only time will tell how much he can take.

“Shatter Me” by Lindsey Stirling
“If I break the glass, then I’ll have to fly
There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive
I’m scared of changing, the days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
Somebody shine a light
I’m frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive
And shatter me"
“Milk and Cookies” by Melanie Martinez
“9, 10, never want to see you again
11, 12, I pull off black so well
Shit behind the curtain that I’m sick of sugarcoatin’
Next time you’re alone, think fast when you grab the phone
Ashes, ashes, time to go down
Ooh, honey do you want me now?
Can’t take it anymore, need to put you to bed
Sing you a lullaby where you die at the end"
“Cosmic Love” by Florence + The Machine
“And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you"
- Iola (Familiar)
