I think that Tamiyo's ignition was a little...bad. for those of you who don't know it, boulders fell at her, she planeswalked. Which i think is bad. I'm not such a good story wrighter, but i know a lot of you are. So I'm starting a contest rated by the public to which has the best story, rating starts sunday, octobe 21, 2012, vote for a story by posting the persons name. It can be as long as you like. GO!
I believe you may be confused. "Rocks fall, everyone dies," is an in-joke in nerd circles originating in D&D for a GM becoming frustrated and killing the entire party with falling rocks from nowhere. There is no story on Tamiyo or if there is it's yet to be shown, although she seems well liked so she'll probably get an official one from Wizards later. Not to discourage your endevours, just clarifying.
Yeeeeeep, you missed the joke.
The whole thing is that she doesn't have an ascension story.
And really, whatever you choose to do, even if "Rocks Fell" WAS her ascension story, the contest wouldn't have much worth. It wouldn't change what they would have hypothetically chosen.

This is the trap you fall into any time you ever try and write something revolving around a character created by the official team.
Ooh, ooh I got one.

Rocks slid onto her.

Well, that was easy.

No, no, "Rocks fell, Tamiyo ascended," isn't ironically cruel enough. The true story is that Tamiyo fell on the rocks.
One day Tamiyo was at home writing lemony fanfiction.  She got a little too excited and *POOF* her spark ignited.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Tamiyo/Koth your OTP?

Kamigawa collided with one of the refractions of Rabiah.

Tamiyo was attacked by Rocs.

Wait, "her" ears? Someone doesn't know anime fangirls well enough.

See those long things dangling around her neck?
Those are her ears.
She's an anthropomorphic rabbit.   
Ah Tamiyo, I remember her well. She was my first victim.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh, ok i get it now, though the contest still stands, and i do like the sliding idea. very innovative. 
Tamiyo, cold and alone, began to attempt to ignite a fire, for both warmth and light. Her tools of ignition: two rocks.

Her opponent?

The Boulder.

The Boulder feels conflicted about fighting a young blind rabbit girl.

What's the matter boulder?! You chicken!?
After much effort I had finally walled her in. It wasn't easy. Those damned rabbits are signifigantly better at moving than myself. Then as I closed in she up and disappeared. Up until then I had thought myself to be the only interplanar being. It was a real eye opener. Or it would have been if I had eyes. After that moment I created the Great Wall of Kamigawa to stop that pesky plainswalking.
What of your ancient enemy... THE JUGGERNAUT!?
THE STEEL WALL HAS SPREAD HERE. THERES NO ESCAPE.

We do not speak of that inbred piece of machinery.

You are obviously ignorant of anime fandom if you don't know the problem with the word "her" in lemony fanfiction by a girl.

(And yes, I wrote that as an acronym for "yaoi" deliberately.)

Really? I thought you were bolding letters for no reason.
Tamiyo got her spark when Garruk was hungry for some rabbit stew. The story goes the way a Bugs Bunny cartoon with Elmer Fudd. Maybe throw in Liliana as Daffy.
Everyone knows it was the result of planar shenigans with Muraganda...

One lonely night while exploring and manipulating the fabrics of her being, she ignited her spark with a glorious cry of discovery.

@RageSagingGrenade:

I definitely checked to see whether your bolded letters spelled anything... >_>

Also, how many people have you stuffed into that one account? What on earth is going on with that?

I am a conglomorate of sage62 and RagingGoblinGrenade. My sage half is definitely the dominant one.
@Keeper You missed the madness that was the YMTC board deciding to splice members together in search of ultimate power. Those of us who survived now pick our way through the tattered ruins, posting only in the deep hours of the night, praying to nameless gods that we will not be next to become... assimilated.

I was wondering about that. It seemed like something really deranged must have happened in General Chat or YMTC but I couldn't figure out what it was.

Who else got spliced?

...Wait, is the Steel Wall thread the first charge of the invasion? Are we next? O_O

Of course not. They have to pray to nameless gods so they aren't next.
And I'm right here.

The steel wall has already taken thousends of us...
Tamiyo was a young moonfolk, playing with her friends on the playground.

Then, some akki, who were up to no good, began ****in **** up, making trouble, you know.

Naturally, tamiyo fought back, even though her powers were limited.

After her mother, a priestess of the kami of the crescent moon (this was before he got killed) found out, she got pretty scared, and sent her child to live with her auntie and uncle in bel-air.

And then she got hit by a rock and planeswalked.

An admirable try, but your cadence needed work and the flow wasn't ill enough.
I wonder if she's decendent from one of old Legends like Erayo, Soratami Ascendant, Meloku the Clouded Mirror, or Uyo, Silent Prophet. Tamiyo might have acsended the same way certain Legends in Kamigawa ascend.

There's an easy way to tell if that's the case.
Assume no because it's honestly a little ridiculous to assume every soratami is related to each other.
Actually, it happened much in the same way that Vince Neil's spark ignited. The first time either of them heard REO Speedwagon. That was all it took. So, in a way, I suppose a "Rock" did ignite her spark.

I may be stupid, but what's the easy way?

She's neither an enchantment nor a spirit.

The easy way is to realize how stupid it is to assume anyone is related to existing characters unless it is directly stated.
They make a thing out of characters being related to others.
