One Size Fits All by Trinity-Fate One Size Fits All by Trinity-Fate

"C'mon dude, I couldn't have gained more than a pound or two!"

"Oh you could have. And it shows. I'm surprised your uniform hasn't split a seam yet."

"Ouch. Okay, even if I DID gain that much, it's TOTALLY normal for a growing elementalist to put on a few. You remember the old spiel they give in academy. 'It's just more energy to burn! That's why the uniforms are stretchy!'"

"You're right. All elementalists need extra energy for using elementals. But there's a problem with that for you."

"Oh really? What is this 'problem?'"

"Playing video games and sitting on your ass most of the day isn't 'burning' it."

"..."

"..."

"...fuckyouiburnplentyenoughenergy"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sade always gets on Valen's case when he slacks off on his training.

I suppose I'll take this time now to explain the "Elementalist problem" that :iconbuttercupfarms: came up with and I expounded on that explains why most of the people in this world are chubby.
--------
Basically, the elementalist problem persists throughout a person's lifetime. So elementalists have naturally large appetites, and all the excess calories are expended in using elementals.

The fatter people of the world are those who either eat more than they expend or just don't use elementals at all (this'd be mostly in the case of older people and people with careers that don't involve using elementals).

And then there's the wind elementalists. They use the wind elementals to kick their metabolism into a momentary overdrive that allows them to move 5 times faster than normal people, but that in itself uses about 5 times the amount of calories as normal stuff. So wind elementalists have to eat about 5 times more than other elementalists to stay in balance. And since Valen is a lazy person in most cases he'll often have extended periods of time when he doesn't use them at all. So in a matter of weeks he can go from skinny to fat (and it's usually only when he notices it that he actually does something about it.) because he gains weight 5 times faster than normal.

So basically with people like Matoko, Umi, and Sade, the weight gain would be slow and gradual because the expenditure and intake would be closer in balance. But with Valen it would be rapid because his metabolism is constantly shifting.
--------

As such all elementalist uniforms are made to accomodate their wearers' forever fluctuating physiques.

...also I wanted to draw chubby Valen in his uniform.

'Using elementals'?

These 'elementalists' enslave, manipulate, and in terms of wind elementalists, consume magical beings of classical-elemental energies?! omfg 

Damn, dude. I'm really hoping those are typos.

They weren't typos. You're just misunderstanding.

1. Elementals, or at least the ones I'm talking about anyway, are just kinds of energy. They aren't magical beings. 

2. They don't "consume" elementals. They use their own stored energy to create them.

So this is your own fictional universe that has it's own laws of magic that sets it apart from other, more traditional fantasies?

Seems legit :3
