Definitive Collisions of Fire & Ice – Ferdinandt Pretorius
Fire and ice: Two opposing forces. Two worlds apart. Strong, powerful and capable of destroying anything in their wake, but when these forces collide, then even nature watches on in awe. Born to fire, Zerumian initially struggles to make a living in an otherwise normal word where very little around him can survive the heat coursing through his veins. He grows up in solitude, and when the fire continues to rage beyond his control, he makes the decision to leave home and seek out the cold mountains in the north, hoping to find the solution to his quandary. Born to ice, Loriaden initially enjoys her life along with her friends and family and mesmerises them with her ice sculptures and creations. Things remain relatively calm and stable throughout her life, until reality began to set in. Perplexed by the increasing lack of control, she continues to freeze objects every now and then, which eventually ends up with her freezing an entire room in a hotel one night. Frightened by the experience and nightmares, she rushes off towards the mountains just north of her town, hoping that the blizzard would pass and that her life would return to normality.
