ELEMENTALS EXPLAINEDYou should probably read this is you are either:
A) RaverPanda OR
B) Are a BTE fan.
Basically this is going to explain to you what exactly Gavenia and her friends are. It will give examples and insights as well, so if you're option B and don't like spoilers, go away.
Now, if you read the profiles/interviews and extracts I post here on dA about the BTE characters you'll notice that they are NOT human, but something called "Elementals". Basically an Elemental is a being empowered with one of the elements. Traditionally it is 4, but I chose to expand that number to 8. It was difficult but I did it.

I gasped slightly, quickly lowering the bottle from my lips. I knew she'd be mad if she caught me drinking again. Pursing my lips, I placed the alcohol on my night table as her footsteps came closer and closer.
"Dad, I know you've been drinking you don't have to hide it from me." She whispered, shutting the door behind her. I held my head in my hands.
"Rem, I'm sorry I just need some time alone "
"Is it about mom?" Remy muttered, sitting down beside me on the bed. I huffed.
"It's nothing, don't worry about it." I folded my arms, looking over at her. "Aren't you supposed to be in bed?"
"I was worried, that's all." She pulled a smile, getting off as quickly as she'd come on. I hated when she did that. It hurt knowing she'd bother hiding something from me. "I love you, daddy."
"I love you too c'mon, get to bed. You have school in the morning." I murmured, combing the hair out of my eyes with my hand. She nodded and headed out of
BTESolomonKiss"Gavenia, eat something. Please. I'm begging you "
"I refuse to take anything from you!" she screamed, attempting to open the front door using all her might. "Let me out of here you kidnapper!"
Solomon sighed, running a hand through his hair.
"Gav, I'm trying to help you but all you're doing is making this difficult! Your boyfriend's going to bloody kill me if you go back in this state."
"Good, because you deserve it you filthy, worthless, untalented, sluggish, slutty worm! I hate you!" Gavenia cried, storming past him. She seemed to be trying desperately to find a way out, with no luck. Solomon groaned, almost trying to rip out his hair. Why couldn't she just see that it was an act years ago?
"Gavenia, I know you're mad and I know and understand why." He huffed. "I just ask you to trust me on this one. You're going to hurt yourself even worse if you keep this up."
She paused, hesitant. She didn't want to forgive him and make him feel as though he could win
Blisters on her thumb, skin peeling
She's doing it again, pushing the slider up bit by bit with each passing second-
Her mind is blank and her face pale, sickly.
"Is this what I want?" a broken voice whispers.
Once more she adjusts her knife to the right length, pulling up her sleeve
She stares at her arm in disgust.
What she saw was painful memories seared into her skin,
Soiling the beauty of once was.
Scars and cigarette burns riddled across the outside,
Happiness and joy lost within.
"I want this to end." she mutters, lifting the knife.
She holds to her wrist her instrument, hoping to the stars above this be the last time she ever have to open her eyes again.
Finally she slices, firing rapidly at herself, deeper and deeper.
Warm, sticky fluid flows abundantly from her veins to the floor,
Staining the soft white carpets.
She continued to slit, faster and faster and deeper and deeper.
No matter how hard she wished she
