Nanomancer Reborn - I've Become A Snow Girl? - Chapter 1093: Gaia's Blessing
Even though she made it sound easy, the construction of an anchor that can produce divine energy was far from easy. Even now, the only reason she even had an anchor that could do that was due to the it being her main anchor, one that represented her participation of this event.
If her anchor is destroyed, she’ll be disqualified. While she may not be dead, she wouldn’t be able to win either.
A slow descent to destruction.
Shaking her head free of the negative thoughts, Shiro tried to finish the anchor.
The main thing that was different when she was making her own anchor was that back then she had forcefully raised her level to the realm of gods and used tier 7 magic circle to build her anchor. While she may not have access to that, she now understood how to use their runes.
If combined properly, it was akin to a tier 8 magic circle.
There was also the case of supplying divine energy for it to harmonise with the mana. She wasn’t sure if the passive production of divine energy was linked to her being the first to create a divine anchor or not, so she wasn’t sure if this was the only thing she needed to do.
“Gaia, are any of you able to tell me something that I might want to know before I begin? Just so that I can make some early adjustments.” Shiro called out since she knew that they were watching whenever they could. Which was most of the time.
While she was waiting for their response, Misu could only look at her in confusion since she recognised the name.
‘Gaia is the name of a Deity, why is Shiro calling out to her? With such familiarity too… There’s no way right?’ She thought to herself since it seemed almost illogical but looking back at it, it indeed possible.
After all, she was in a similar situation.
Waiting a short moment, Shiro got her reply.
[Goddess Gaia states that it is indeed possible. If you use their crests as one of the catalysts for making the anchor then you’ll be able to infuse some of their own divine energy into the core. However, you have to be careful since it cannot hold too much divine energy unlike your main anchor. Overload it with divine energy and the anchor may just explode on you. If you want to make it so that it produces divine energy by itself, you’ll have to infuse a small part of your soul. For gods, the physical body doesn’t hold as much importance as the soul. The divine energy nourishes the soul and the soul produces divine energy. When you become a god, it is your soul transcending to a new sate of power and naturally, your body follows.]
“Is that so… So if I use your crests, the anchor will hold divine energy but won’t produce it. If I use my own soul, it will produce divine energy but only small amounts daily.” Shiro asked.
[Goddess Gaia nods her head in agreement. She states that you can use both options at once. While your anchor producing divine energy, her crests can provide for a short while before expiring.]
Reading this, Shiro nodded her head and closed her eyes. However, before she started, she paused.
“Gaia, I have Nyx’s blessing but I don’t think I have yours.”
[Goddess Gaia pauses in shock and disbelief. She shouts out about how she can’t believe she hasn’t given you her blessings yet.]
Surprised that it was just a short message, Shiro blinked her eyes when a tier 8 magic circle suddenly appeared in front of her.
Divine energy filled the room as Misu stepped back in shock as she didn’t expect a god to just appear like this. She knew that materialising yourself before the second part of the new age was ridiculous since the backlash was not something an average god can handle.
But since it was Gaia, a primordial deity, she would be fine. Even if the backlash is bigger than normal.
“You know, you didn’t have to materialise yourself. Aren’t you worried about backlash?” Shiro asked as Gaia transformed herself so that she was roughly the same size as Shiro.
“Well if I gave you my blessing from up there it would only be a standard one. Naturally, I can’t just give you a standard blessing. Lets see… it’s been a while since you have received a blessing and with your strength, your body can handle mine quite easily. Hmm let me think of what might be useful for you.” Gaia said as she circled around Shiro.
Walking around for a short while, her lips curved up into a smile as she pounced on her back and wrapped her arms around Shiro’s neck, securing her position on her back.
“I have three that I think you might like. I can give all three to you. The first, Life Essence Absorption. This allows you to absorb life essence from your surroundings and enemies passively if you wanted. During a fight, you will be able to constantly drain them and use that to heal yourself. The active effect of this skill allows you to meld your body to the Earth for a short period of time, absorbing life essence from the giant reservoir this world holds and heal you even if you’re on the brink of death. It is what I use to keep myself alive.” Gaia explained as Shiro nodded her head.
“The second is a skill called Embodiment of Nature. This skill also has two effects. The first is similar to a berserk skill, you are able to draw out the power of nature and myself to help you in combat. Careful of the backlash since you are using the power of a god. The second effect, allows you to sense anything that touches the ground. It’s similar to your satellites but this one allows you to see underground too.” Gaia winked since this would give Shiro something akin to Odin’s all seeing eye but at the same time, not quite.
“The last skill isn’t as good as the other two but it’s just a helpful passive if anything. Earthen Protection. Whenever you’re standing on the ground, the Earth will shift to protect you no matter what. You can also give this blessing to someone else for a short period of time. Over all, it’s just a good passive to have.” Gaia shrugged as Shiro nodded her head.
“Thank you.” Shiro smiled since Gaia has done so much for her now.
“Of course, anything for you. Now shall we talk about marriage?” Gaia narrowed her eyes as both Misu and Shiro froze up for a moment.
‘Marriage????’ MIsu widened her eyes as she felt like her brain had just exploded.
Just as Gaia mentioned Marriage, another tier 8 magic circle appeared as she quickly coughed.
“Just kidding. Anyways here’s the blessing.” Gaia smiled as she leaned forward and kissed Shiro on the cheeks.
The moment her crest appeared, Gaia quickly jumped off and waved at Shiro.
“See you~” Gaia grinned.
Jumping into her own portal, her tier 8 magic circle disappeared and so did the second one.
Blinking her eyes, Shiro glanced at her system and saw that she had received Gaia’s Blessing.
A blessing from the primordial goddess. This blessing contains three effects:
Life Essence Absorption, Embodiment of Nature, Earthen Protection.
Shaking her head, Shiro coughed lightly and glanced back at Misu who was sitting on the floor.
“Are you alright?” Shiro asked as Misu nodded her head.
“Gaia… wants to marry you?” Misu asked slowly as Shiro scratched her hair.
“Seems so. But I’ll be able to make the anchor for you now.” Shiro helped her up before walking back to the anchor.
Closing her eyes, she clasped her hands together as mana flared.
Tier 6 magic circle stacked on top of one another in front of her as blue and gold liquid condensed in the centre.
Opening her eyes, Shiro conjured up Gaia’s crests. Golden radiance filled the room as a pool of divine energy flooded towards the liquid.
Furrowing her brows, Shiro reached out with one hand so that she could stop the momentum. She didn’t need that much divine energy in the anchor otherwise it may blow up.
Carefully adjusting it so that it flowed slowly, she started to mix the two liquids together.
She could sense how volatile the liquid would become if the flow of divine energy becomes to much to handle
Retracting most of it back to the crest, she started to condense the liquid into a crystal.
Watching the liquid crystalise, Misu could see that the crystal held a golden core with blue crystals surrounding it.
Sensing the power it radiated, she knew that it would help speed up everything.
After returning to the divine realm, Gaia ran away from Nyx for a few moments before looking back at the screen. The moment the crystal was formed, Gaia felt a slight tug in her divine energy.
It was her divine energy being funnelled through the crystals to heal the one that Misu wanted to help.
Closing her eyes, she sensed that the other target was heavily injured. However, that was not what she was bothered about, what she was bothered about was that the other party was a god.
