Sacrifices
A Tales of the Abyss AU oneshot. Spoilers for after Tower of Rem
It was painful to see him like this, pale and wan, sleeping on a hospital bed, his red hair splayed across the pillow like dying flames. Not that it didn't hurt when he was awake too, bored with the sterile atmosphere of the research facility masquerading as a hospital. He was allowed outside sometimes, for fresh air - as fresh as the air around Belkend was - and for a change of atmosphere. But whenever she was there with him at those times, there were frequent instances - all too frequent - where he'd wince, turn away and try to hide the part of his body that started flickering in and out of existence. As if she couldn't tell anyway.
He'd rather have been out there, fighting with her and the others, doing what he could to stop her brother. But it was all too likely they'd need both him and Asch to face Van and free Lorelei, and when the rate of his fonon separation had suddenly spiked, Jade had insisted that he ch

Kick
Tear could tell it had been a long, trying day as soon as Luke slumped onto the bed, sighing unhappily and curling up with his back to her. It had been a foregone conclusion, really, what with him finally getting home as late as it was. What with their respective positions in Remir, it wasn't uncommon for one or the other – or both – to finally get home at unholy hours, too exhausted to do much more than fall straight into bed and sleep through the rest of the night. The situation had been getting better over time, as more of the replicas were either found safe homes or moved successfully to Remir, but it never disappeared entirely: they were essentially helping to run a city somewhere between the size of Sheridan and Keterburg, never mind what responsibilities they had for Remir's bases in other towns.
Luke didn't say anything, probably guessing that she was asleep already. For a while Tear listened, watching the b

Chapter 1
"Oh, for goodness sake!" Anise snapped, bringing the quiet thrum of conversation running through the Albiore's cabin to a halt. She glared over at a particular corner, where Luke and Tear were sitting. "Are you two seriously going to go straight back to acting like nothing's going on? You gotta stop dancing around the subject and just spit it out already! You already did it once – I heard you at Eldrant, Tear!"
Asch had remained mostly silent thus far, content to simply listen and observe the discussion going on around him, or at least, as content as one could expect. He'd spent so long avoiding being around most other people, this group in particular, contacting them only when absolutely necessary. The abruptness of the shift from that to… this… left him feeling distinctly unsettled, though Natalia's presence next to him helped a great deal. He wasn't the most social of creatures as it was, at least not since Van had kidnapped him.  Watchin

Reaction - Prologue
Full-game spoilers for Tales of the Abyss
It was a moment that seemed to be trapped in time, as she asked a single question, her voice catching as she did so.
"Why are… you here?"
To her, it was a moment of shock, the kind of stunned denial that came from not wanting to even dare to hope, to realize that what she saw standing in front of her was no dream or illusion. Such a hope would hurt far too much if extinguished, after all. Reason and emotion warred from within, and for one of the few times in her life, she had no strength to quell the fighting.
To the three behind her – the princess, the adolescent girl and the young swordsman – it was a moment similar in emotion, if not in intensity. There had been so many nights like this, nights where they'd stood here and waited, and hoped and prayed. Nights where they would hear that same melody the young woman in front of them had been singing such a short while ago, mournfully echoing throughout the valley. For them,

Like Mother, Like Son
A Golden Sun Fanfic
Dark Dawn-centric, no DD spoilers to speak of, some TLA

People would always compare fathers and sons, and mothers and daughters. But no one in Isaac's memory had ever pointed out how much mothers and sons could be so very much alike.
Matthew was leaving, his only son, just like Isaac himself had over thirty years ago. And on the day that Isaac had left, he remembered, with painful clarity, how he'd waited there alone - despite the crowd around him - at Vale's gate. How Garet's younger brother was eventually the one to run up and give him the message from "Aunty Dora" to her only son, the death knell of the idea that his mother would see him off into the world.
He'd understood, when he'd stopped to think about it. She'd already lost Kyle, in the storm – even if he had been alive the whole time – and now she was about to lose him, the only family she had left.
He was able to understand, but that hadn't made it any less painful, knowing she wasn

Fabulous Fan Art Feature
Fan art seems to get a bad rap here around dA, with many people claiming that it's unoriginal. Fan art also seems to get equated with tracing more than any other category... Sure, there are some fan artists who trace, but there are many, many others who take time on their drawings!
So, I wanted to show some fan artists that put a lot of effort and work into their pictures! Fan art is bashed just because of its category, but it can look just as nice as "real" art. Here are some of the best fan artists that I know here, with a few of their pieces.

Slayer's Honor
Slayer's Honor
The inn was nothing much to look at from the outside. A low, unprepossessing building made of wood, with its walls worn and clumsily patched, it peaked in the rear where the wood had held firm and sagged forward slightly towards the front. There, inexpert carpenters had apparently measured supports just a few inches too short. The stables weren't in much better shape, and the paddock next to them was tiny, fit only for a few horses at most. The inn as a whole had little to recommend it, except for the fact that it was the only building in sight from where it stood next to the King's Highway.
The inside of the inn wasn't much better. The squeaky doors opened into a dimly-lit common room filled with rickety furniture and tables that, while clean, were scuffed and dented as though maces had been taken to them. At one end of the hall stood the large double doors that led outside; at the other was a staircase leading to the sleeping rooms, a large bar behind which the innkeep

TR: Take One Down
“Kit?”
The small room was made of stone blocks hacked from granite and shaped by rough craftsmen's tools. The floor was bare stone, swept painstakingly clean. On the walls hung several maps, and in the far corner a bookshelf resided, stuffed to overflowing with loose-leaf notebooks and scrolls. One wall was loopholed with an arrow slit, through which streamed fresh air and a small amount of light that was insufficient to illuminate the room. But the single yellow- glowing orb that hung from the ceiling, suspended by invisible chains, provided enough light for a room twice the size of this one.
“Yes?”
In the middle of the room was a small, rectangular table. It was piled high with scrolls and loose paper dumped in haphazard piles. Someone had obviously tried to arrange it into some semblance of order, probably before the current occupant had moved in, but the neat “In” and “Out” labels on a pair of open-topped boxes were hopelessly buried in paper

Rain, A Pokemon Fanfiction
Rain. It comes in many forms, from spring drizzle to winter storms. Constant and unending, there is always rain somewhere in the world. Also constant is the fact that rain, by it's very nature, is capable of instilling emotions in those who are in it's presence. Some people enjoy the rain, finding comfort in the chill and the steady beat. For others, the rain can bring up painful memories of times they'd rather forget...
It was raining again.
Ensconced in the back of the shallow cave, the white Pokémon set down the book he had been seeking to amuse himself with and stared at the firelight on the walls. Curling his thick purple tail around his feet, he listened to the rain instead of turning his wedge-shaped head to watch it. The crackle of the fire was all but drowned out by the dull roar of the rain, not more than ten meters away and outside the cave. It was hardly a cave, really, more of an indentation in the mountainside that happened to dip into it a ways, but the Pok

Guess I owe you all an explanation for disappearing again.

Well, as some of you may know, I've just transitioned from high school to college, and it's been a change on an insanely large number of levels. It's been a maturing situation for me, as I'm forced to learn how to balance schoolwork and free time not to mention the basics of taking care of myself (I'm living on campus). I'm also gaining more new fandoms in the past few weeks than I have within the past few years...

Kingdom Hearts - better late than never, eh? You guys probably knew this one, what with my Xion fanart and all. Probably one of the most intensely I've felt about a fandom that I can ever remember. I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes. And to play Birth by Sleep.

Tales of the Abyss - My first Tales game, though I've heard of Tales of Symphonia in the past. DANG this game is good... We're maybe halfway through it now, I think? We being myself and the friend who introduced it to me, who is playing Luke... Seriously though. This game is intensely emotional, with great graphics, music, and plotline, and the surprises JUST. KEEP. COMING.

Persona 4 - This is the one that surprised me. Frankly... had I come across this game on my own, I would have taken one look at the rating and beat a hasty retreat in the opposite direction. But I just started watching my roommate and her friend play it while cross-stitching, and it grew SO. DAMN. MUCH on me, that when we got to the scenes that it's probably rated M for (Two words - Rise's Shadow), I merely averted my eyes for the battle rather than sprinted away and never came back.  It's... it's incredible. Great plot, graphics, and I mean, I wasn't too keen on the vocal BGM at first, but it grew on me. And I mean, one of the things that impressed me so much was the fact that, for instance, the rating... Well, I'll just put it this way. It wasn't rated M for fanservice (Well, admittedly there were a few fanservice-y moments, but mostly those were brief and played for laughs) - all of the more adult elements were integrated very nicely into the plot. If I may say so, I heard more inappropriate things from the people watching than I did from the game.

Overall... it's been a very enlightening experience, and I'm glad to be here.

As for classes (the important thing, though not always as fun to talk about!), so far I haven't been doing anything too specialized. Mainly just general and introductory classes, even though none of them are the basic math, science, lang/lit, or social sciences. It's helped make the transition easier, but at the same time, can be a little dull. I think I'm going to be starting into some real stuff next semester, though! :)

Just wanted to let you all know what I've been up to. And what I might be gushing about.

I might also post some fanfics soon. I'm beginning to doubt I'll finish Chains, but the first chapter is done, and it stands fairly decently on its own. I've also got a couple Persona 4 ones in production and a third one in my head. It's funny... I like letting ideas just play around in my head, even if they don't all make it to paper anymore.

Hope you all are doing well!

Oh, it was your birthday? Ehe.. Got in a little late on that..

Hey Gorsecloud, I was wondering if you know more about the status of ScytheRider. He hasn't been updating anything online for the past half year, and.. Well, I'm kinda worried about his well-being.

Other that that, Happy birthday!

And, uh, we don't know eachother (h)
