(noun: harbinger; plural noun: harbingers)
HARBINGER is an Omen/Forewarning type of Word. It has no true form, due to its body being 95% fear and 5% bitterness at the back of one’s throat. However, it consistently appears as text messages that begin with “Can we talk?”, “I got a confession” or “There is something I need to tell you” (not limited to these sets of words). It has soft eyes, cold fingers and quivering lips that hides black fangs. Though its packaging comes with a neat pink ribbon, the blackness of its content tends to leave an unsightly smudge across the return address.
HARBINGER’s passive ability of “Revelation” may induce shock, tears and a rejection of past beliefs. However, due the transient biology of HARBINGER, an acquisition of HM04 (Inner) Strength may dispel any side effects of “Revelation”. Be warned though, for HARBINGER is capable of evolving to HEARTBROKEN starting at Level 5 and its passive ability of “Despair” is incurable until one takes a trip to the Center and approach Nurse Joy for further assistance.
When exposed to “Despair” for too long, one’s HEARTBROKEN could evolve to DEPRESSION
DEPRESSION is a Dark/Empty type of Word. It is a biohazard to the heart, leaking past memories and thoughts that wilts all happiness away. Even it being in close proximity with other individuals will cause a rapid change in mood. Extreme caution is advised upon contact, as one walks through a minefield of forgotten voices, past text messages and trigger warnings that may cause severe recoil. The side effects of this word could render one’s mind barren for an uncertain period of time. When assignments, deadlines and classes clash together in a spectacular fusion, strains of DEPRESSION may leak and affect work-life performance.
DEPRESSION may cause one’s quality of life to deteriorate and suffer in the long run. However, due to the state of flux that DEPRESSION provides, time shall tell if one tides through the darkness that shrouds over. Potions like Vitamin C and D, exercise and friends who have your back™ may help to ease this painful stage of evolution .
RECOVERY is a Journey/Beginnings type of word. Upon hatching from the cold and dark cocoon that surrounded DEPRESSION, RECOVERY grows a fiery desire to take back what it deserved. While it stumbled as it leapt across lives after lives, it continued to soar through the sky bit by bit. Months of being crippled and wounded in the shadows rendered RECOVERY to be a slow and arduous one. Yet, it was in the shadows that RECOVERY learnt HM04 (Inner) Strength. It gradually strengthens its legs and becomes faster by chasing after lost time. And from the heart of darkness, RECOVERY takes you to places far beyond aching wounds and bloody memories, one step at a time.
