It was, as always, a beautiful day in New Celestia. The October sky was cloudless, and Camille was out for an early morning run. She just needed a chance to stretch herself out before getting to work. The feast of Demeter was just a few days off, and she'd been asked to help get things set up for the festival.

The other demigods were just starting to wake up. Children of smithing gods were warming up the forges, while others were readying training exercises, or simply enjoying the day. All was as it should be.
