    The seasons

    First of all; call me Lexi. Second of all; this is not a demigod story. They all have powers. Taylor and Tyler got hit by a tornado of fire. Nathen got hit by a tornado of wind. Taylor and Tyler have Summer powers, Nathen has Fall powers, and Maya has Winter powers. They meet a girl named Alexus Roe who has Fall powers. She takes them to a camp that is kind of like Camp Half-Blood. The camp director is a powerful being who prefurs the form of a human. He has a red bushy beard and red hair. He is tall and fat. His name is Azognus ( pronuced: az- og- noose). He controls all the bad things of Summer. They train for a couple months. They meet three more kids: Sierra Johnson, Aiden Bennett, and Eric Lean. Sierra and Aiden have Spring powers. They can make plants grow. Eric has Winter powers. They team up and are chosen to defeat the goddess of Winter: Melunknie ( pronuced: mel- lunk- knee). And the goddess of Spring: Ellennoth. They are given animals two help them along the mission. Maya gets a wolf named Harvey. Eric gets a snow leopard named Rosie. Sierra gets a fox named May. Aiden gets a bear named Charles. Taylor gets a pheonix named Blaze. Tyler gets a stag named Colt. Alexus gets a flying squrriel named Gracie. Nathen gets a dragon named Windlifter. |||||||||| you can make up the rest. I will post their bios at season res 1. Also come to collaborate res 3. SK wants authors. I'm not going. ~ Lexi
