I'll post as soon as I can. My new job is working me hard, so I haven't been able to post. Sorry everyone.

I totally understand.  Work can be so impeding on extracurricular activities such as roleplaying.  Take as much time as you need!  I'm sure that it'll be a great read worth the wait.

Welcome to the community!  I'm glad that you decided to join us. : )  I hope that you enjoy it here and make lots of friends.  We're an exceptional lot here on this site, if I may say so myself, and have found it to be a very friendly and welcoming community.

 

Aqua is a terrific character, and one of my favorites as well.  I really appreciated that they broke up the norm for female protagonists with Aqua and inserted her as one of the main roles in Birth by Sleep.  In general, though, I thought Birth by Sleep was a terrific title to the series.  That's great that you have played the majority of the series!  As for 358/2 Days, I think you would be correct in watching the movie that comes with the collection.  The gameplay itself wasn't that memorable, in my opinion, and I mostly just played it for the story and cutscenes.  I felt that they added some great content into 1.5 for the game as well, so hopefully you find it matching your interests!

 

It was nice meeting you, and I look forward to seeing you around the forums. :)

--Fiona--

 

The pink-haired girl merely shrugged, shoving her newspaper aside and jumping up.  She wrapped her arms tightly around her older sister, a wide grin on her face as she looked up to meet Val's gaze.  "I don't know.  I've heard that punching bag comes back with a vengeance, or at least that's what Dad says."

 

When Val sat down Fiona returned to her seat as well, getting ready to resume her read of her newspaper when her sister inquired about it.

 

"Oh, yeah, here ya go," she said, sliding it across the table for her to see.  "It's talking about their arrival today and discussing some of the participants who will be coming over.  I guess some of the island's most notorious villains are having their kids come over here or something?  It's kind of freaky, what with the way they break it up."

 

And it was indeed alarming.  A large paragraph discussing the villains' crimes made up the front page, while discussing their children being brought to the island and being uncertain of what to expect from them.  While Fiona desired to see the good in people, she could only wonder what good was in a child when their parents--or role models, rather--did all of that.

 

--Nora--

 

"Oh, so that's why I heard your phone!" Nora said with a slight laugh, entering Dex's room upon his granting entry.  She didn't come in very often, and it always seemed to change every time she entered.  Whether this was her imagination or not, she didn't know.

 

Nora sat on the edge of the bed, throwing back a lock of silky black hair over her shoulder, hair so very much like her mother's except in length.

 

"I think the entire town is worried about the new kids coming," Nora admitted.  "Though to be honest I do not really see why.  It's not like we're letting a band of criminals come in, you know?  If anything, I would think they are anxious to prove that they are not their parents, or at least that's what I would do."

 

Was she equating herself to these Badlands kids too much?  She hoped that Dex hadn't picked up on it, or, if he had, that he wouldn't pry about it.

You waiting for Vaude to respond before doing more of the flashback? Just curious. xP

 

-----------------

 

I hate how tired I am sometimes. .-.

Yes, I was indeed. :)  I think it was his turn?  Perhaps I lost track.  I'll go take a peek.

 

And tiredness is so annoying at times!  Just been too busy to rest?

--Everyth Castanova -- with Aura, Henry, and Helios--

 

A frown furrowed Everyth's brow as Aura smiled at her.  Not because the girl's smiles were rare, but rather the pearly whites that she flashed in her direction.  She was getting ready to say something to her regarding the matter, but was unable to when Mariel approached.  Everyth wasn't about to make a big production when all could witness, especially since she didn't particularly know the archangel that well.

 

"I see," was her response once Mariel conveyed her message, nodding toward the woman.  "I will be there."

 

Clasping her hands around her elbows, she turned to the party, violet eyes hesitating on Henry briefly before focusing back on Aura.  "Well, I'm going to see what his Lordship has to say about all of this.  I am also interested in King Alderon's viewpoint on the matter, if he decides to give a word."

 

Now that they were in the Overworld it seemed that Raiden was fully in charge, and little had Everyth heard directly from their king.  It seemed a little curious to her that this was so, but it was also partially understandable.  This wasn't their world, nor was this wholly their war.  And, if Raiden really did kill the queen as others had suggested . . . .  She couldn't even imagine what sort of mess they were about to get themselves into.

 

--King Alderon -- Mystras Camp--

Flashback:

Spoiler

 

Alderon looked almost disturbed by the fact that Alex bowed to him so deeply in his wounded state.  He rose a hand, as though to stop him, though he didn't get the hand far due to the injuries in that shoulder.  "Do not injure yourself to pay your respects.  I am in a similar position; I understand."

 

It was quite the wonder that any humans walked away from yesterday's battle alive, given that they fought against magic and enchanted weaponry that day.  And yet, here their army stood, with far fewer casualties faced than that of their enemy.  Perhaps the humans were doing something right in their training after all.

 

"And please, boy, there is no guarding anyone when in the middle of war.  You fought and did what you needed to do, as did I.  If I wanted protection I wouldn't have ventured out yesterday.  We both received what we did, but the important thing is that we both are here today having this conversation, yes?"

 

Something tugged at Alderon as he spoke to Alex, thinking back on the days when he was first crowned and during his first assignments away from home.  It was difficult, especially when his dear wife Elicia was back home and he had no means of communication.  The king rubbed his beard thoughtfully.

 

"You know," he started slowly.  "There might just be a way.  Let us ask Lord Raiden upon this matter.  This world is filled with all kinds of magic, after all; surely we must be able to get in contact with them somehow."

 

And that would've meant the world to Alderon, particularly right then, to ensure that Visco was alright and knew that he loved her.

 

~Queen Shiva's Farewell ~ Kilkis Seres Palace~

 

A soft smile played on Shiva's lips as she tilted her head slightly, listening to Eclaire's warm confession.  Perhaps these were things that she had already suspected, but it meant something to actually here her say them.

 

"Why, Eclaire, I have never left you, nor will I ever.  After all, a part of my essence still lives within you, does it not?"  She placed her hands over Eclaire's shoulders, though they couldn't be felt by the retainer.  "I have always believed in you, my dear, from the very day that we met, and you have my word that I shall never stop.  You have proven yourself time and again, Eclaire.  I have seen your strength, determination, and sincerity."

 

She bowed her head, removing a hand from Eclaire's shoulder to place over the young woman's hands.  She went to grasp them, only her fingers slipped right through.  "You were there for me when I needed a shoulder to lean on," she admitted softly.  "I haven't known what it felt like to be loved for quite some time, nor what it was like to love.  You were--no, always--will be very dear to my heart.  Though our time together was brief, it was enough.  Our paths were meant to cross that day in Ambrosia Forest.  Of that I have no doubt.

 

"Now please, lift your chin and smile.  I want you to be proud of who you are, Eclaire, just as I am proud of you.  Please see my legacy through."  Shiva started to move away, though didn't get more than a foot away before pausing.  "Oh, yes, and would you do me a favor?  Please tell Jynn that I love him, and please guide him as he emerges to the throne.  This time will be very difficult for him, and he will need a mother figure more than ever.  May I trust that you will be that mother for him, where I cannot, please?"

 

She was not sure how much Jynn would accept Eclaire, nor how willing Eclaire would be to accept this errand, but she couldn't part from this world without knowing that her dear son would be well looked after, as well as loved and cared for.
