How I Use the Protection Marking
When I think of protection, I think of a barrier. On one side is a world of chaos, swirling about destructively and unpredictably. On the other, a fragile being that is completely aware of the perils it faces. In a feat of ingenuity, the being has constructed the barrier; a protective barrier.
In a sense, I use the Protection marking similar to how I use the Warning marking. However, there are often times that a violent reaction is precisely what the threat wants. In these cases, a more passive approach is needed.
By focusing my will on the Protection marking, I feel as if my body (and the bodies of those I am protecting, if any) turns to an unbreakable stone. Attacking such a thing would be an act in futility. Much like the Warning marking, it creates a sense of safety and empowerment.
