master - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
When you level up, you show others how to do the same. You are now a master of their level and a learner in the one above. As you wish to find help in you new level, be the one who raises others from below. Level up as many as you can, that is how you best protect them.
No master suffers fools gladly, they seek the intelligent and inquisitive apprentice with an instinct for the self sacrifice it takes to become the next master.
The master was as all the masters ever were - focused, demanding and with high attention to detail. There was kindness there though, a recognition of the talent of the apprentice, yet always there was the demand for maximum effort and devotion to the art.
The master knew the main task of all the masters was to teach the apprentice until they achieved mastery at a new level - for this is how the art progresses and the masters are all servants of the art, servants of humanity.
The master had a way of seeing the truth, as if masters learn a different standard of vision to the rest of humanity, as if their eyes become able to view the soul.
The confessing codes need a master to handle them. They cannot be interpreted by one who is an amateur of the craft. Everybody confesses everything, their deepest crimes and fears in everyday language. For a code-breaker it is simple to follow the trail and expose them all. Gemma was one of the linguists who could break them. Some saw what she did as magic, yet in truth she was partnered to the positive universe, a tool of the divine force and saw nothing special in herself. She was as natural as the trees and the fish in the oceans. Yet in the "junk" speech, the ad libs and the stories people tell, in their creative flourishes, there are clues. Much is actually junk, fears of nothing and misplaced guilt, yet a master such as her could tell what was real because the universe placed flags only she could detect, shone lights that only she could see. It was as if her soul shone a black light and the criminals were marked in some invisible ink. She was the ultimate detective, the one sent to uncover the hidden world of vice, sent to restore true virtue.
