I LIVE Y'ALL

Sorry, but I've been losing tons of interest in DA lately.
I'm usually on Amino and Tumblr.

Great news! I just posted my first story here!
Give it a look-see, will ya?~ 0 u 0

I sat upon the rock, looking throughout the humid wetlands.
My long sideburns, resembling a clear, pristine waterfall, flowing gently in the wind.
The land was quiet and undisturbed. So quiet, you could hear your blood flowing throughout your veins.

That is until I heard the sound of footsteps in the distance.
Splash...
‎Splash...
‎Splash...
‎Splash...
‎I knew it wasn't a threat upon seeing a face shining with the innocence of youth.

Our land strictly prohibits unfamiliar faces from entering our wetlands. But, something in that face, those eyes, showed they were merely lost.

I climb down the rock, letting the water embrace my slim body. Upon meeting that gentle and cool embrace, I kicked my feet, continuously, gaining slow but steady momentum. I swam gracefully throughout the wonderous waters.

I eventually stop...
I looked up, seeing that on the other side of this world, a young boy was looking down at the water, gliding his fingertip across the serene surface of water.
My eyes filled with curiousity and wonder. Eyes as wide as the lonely silver moon.
I extend my hand out to the surface...

I made sure that gesture was one of kindness...
I didn't want to frighten him.
Through the ripples in the water, I could tell he was surprised.
His hand withdrew from mine.
I close my eyes and think to myself.
I swam to the surface of the water.

I emerge from the calm waters, my hair, damp and heavy.
I tuck my long bangs behind my ear and look at the small boy.

Moments and moments of silence passed.
Our gazes captivated one another.
The undisturbed silence was then broken for the first time in years.

"Ni Hao..." the young, meek voice said.
"Ni Hao." I responded back.
"What are you? Why are you in the water?" his puzzled voice asked.

I looked down at the water, seeing my own lonely reflection staring back at me.
We sat in silence for a few minutes, the boy waiting ever so patiently to receive my response.
I look back up into those bright amber eyes, and said:

"I am...Jian. I live in the water. It's my home."

"The water is your home?"

"Yes. I was born here."

"It's just like in the stories Grandma told me..."

"Stories?"

"Long ago, there was a cataclysm which wiped out all 7 of the world's continents,"

he paused, as if trying to piece all the information correctly together.

"It was a...punishment to the humans, because they upset the 4 gods of nature. The entire world began to shake violently one day, so violent, the continents sunk to the depths of the sea and all the people drowned in the water..."

He looked down at the silently flowing water in front of him...

"The things that lived in the seas and skies were the only ones that were spared. And over time, the two races of the water and winds evolved into human like creatures."

He paused for a moment, piecing together the information yet again. He looked up towards the gloomy skies, and continued:

"One god decided to reverse this change. He convinced the gods of the earth and humans to bring back what was once lost.
The world was quiet, sad, lonely... He wanted that to change. And so, the three gods came to a decision, they would reverse the cataclysm and create new lands and life. Life and lands nobody would've dreamed of having..."

Before he could continue, I interrupted him with a conclusion I thought right to the story:
"The gods fell asleep, and decided the humans should watch over the world themselves. Thus, a new age was created. It would be referred to as: 'The Era of New Beginnings'."

He nodded at me, his little face looking quite impressed. My lips curve into a slight smile.

"I think I have to go now..." the boy said, picking himself up from the ground.
"Leaving so soon?" I asked
"I don't want my parents to worry." he answers.
"I...kind of enjoy your company," I said, looking down at the water, "Could you come visit again?"
The boy looked surprised upon hearing those words. He thought to himself, then told me: "Well, sure. I enjoy being around you, too."

My long ears perk up, and lips curve into a smile bigger than earlier. I held out one finger in front of him, that indicating for him to wait just for a moment. I reach into my leather pouch, pulling out two beautiful seashells with an identical intricate design on them

"I want you to have this." I hand one of the shells over to him.

He examines it very carefully, "What is this?"

I answer, "Gemini Shells. As long as you have this with you, I'll always be by your side."

His eyes light up in wonder and excitement, "So cool! I promise I won't loose this gift!"

I nod and smile at the cheerful boy.

"Well, I need to go now... Goodbye! See you soon!"

The boy turned his back to me and ran off happily beyond the thick mist.

Even though he couldn't see it, I waved him off with a smile
It was then I realized, I hadn't gotten his name!
I tried to call out to him, but no response was given back.
I can ask him the next time he visits me.
He won't let me down...
...Will he?....

New boys I made the other day.

You know, they remind me of Akira and Ryo from Devilman Crybaby.
Maybe they were my inspiration?

(THEY WERE THEY WERE
I LOVE THOSE BOYS )

( My Opinion, don't get all triggered over it. )

-Fire Emblem-
Let me just get it out of the way, I dislike Fire Emblem with a passion.

I didn't think the series was all that bad, but I hate when people refer to it as: "The Best RPG Ever!" because honestly, it's really not.

Modern Day FE lacks in story, they focus too much around the characters and their relationships.
I believe the highlight of any game is it's intriguing story. FE lacks that nowadays. I'm betting you play it for the characters, not so much it's story.

Hell, it's practically more of a dating simulator with it's "bonding" option.
And you can even get married to others in the series?
Give me a break...

The best highlight of an RPG genre is the story, and how much it may captivate you. Whether it's a story focused around the characters, etc.

I find myself utterly irritated with this series nowadays, and how people give so much praise to it... Seriously, people giving it a 5 star rating only because it's Fire Emblem... They act so much like the game is flawless.

FE went through a big change over the years, more so because these types of games appeal to teen audiences.
Most teen audiences prefer more romance in their RPGs nowadays, and they've just completely given up on the story.

Quite frankly, it annoys me how much I see it browsing around DA and other web sites in which I am seeking something completely different.

I haven't picked up on the series since the older releases, where there was an actually decent storyline...
And I won't be anytime soon.

-Tales of-
Quite popular in Japan, but not as popular here in the Americas.

By a raise of hand, how many of you heard of the series?
Very few, as I expected.

This J-RPG series is so very underrated among the people outside of Japan.
Though the fandom has a dedicated fan base which I am proud to be apart of.

Unlike FE, Tales of is the real deal, bringing you a Captivating storyline, memorable characters, and characters who you will find yourself relating to plenty.
More often than so, you will find your best friend being one of those characters.

Like any game, this series of course has it's flaws, but I feel like the game developers learn from their mistakes and try to deliver new concepts and ideas.
I feel like they like to listen to the feedback that their fans give them, and they gather the ideas in which they like most to develop a story which will appeal to everyone.
I suppose you could call it "Trail and Error".

Storylines...
Tales of typically has very unique character driven stories.
That is one of the strengths of this series in which they are very easily able to pull off.
Though, they tend to start of slow, they will progressively get better and better (I promise!)

The characters...
Many of different backgrounds, culture, personality. They are quite memorable and relatable. You will find yourself relating to the characters even more than your best friend!

The Battle System...
Very unique...it is described as a Linear Motion Battle System (LMBS), you battle your foes in a real-time battlefield. You may move around the battlefield as you will. It's always fun to battle enemies with this battle system!

Character Development...
Never fails to impress.
You will see with your own eyes how your characters grow and handles each situation prior to when you first we're introduced to them.
I feel like you can see their maturity and you'll just be amazed at how much they have changed.
It's like watching a child grow into an adult.

It's Underrated!!!
How does this happen? How does a series like this end up being so unknown among us...? Why haven't we spent our time looking for J-RPGs like this?... I wish that more people would appreciate it for what this series really is....

Conclusion
Fire Emblem gets too much praise and isn't a flawless game like how many in the FE fandom claim it to be.

It would be nice to see Tales of getting more praise than it has. Which isn't very much. All we can do is hope for it to be recognized... One day it may receive it's spotlight time which is so rightfully deserves.

If you read this far down, then thanks for giving me your time!
Hope you respect my opinion, and not fuss over it.

Thank you for reading!
