  1. I think fondly of you and our days in Askr, my darling Takumi. We fought many battles together against Embla, Múspell, even the realm of the dead. We promised to look after each other, but it wasn't long until we promised something else too. Remembering the day I became your wife makes me smile. You looked so adorable standing in front of Prince Alfonse with the Askran sun on your precious face. My knees still buckle when I think of how strong and determined you sounded when we took our vows. It was the happiest day of my life. But happiness is fleeting; life in Nohr teaches you that quickly. When I was with you, I could forget. Then the day came when Askr's wars ended, and we had to return to our world and the war waiting for us. Darling, your words follow me everywhere. "I'll find you again. I promise you, Camilla, we will find each other again, and if our families won't accept us, we'll run away together." The way you said my name and squeezed my hands made me want to believe it was possible, that we could have a life, a home, and perhaps even a beautiful family. I couldn't do anything that day except smile and nod, even though I knew it would never be more than a dream. We sealed that vow with a kiss, just like when we pledged to love, honor, and cherish each other, "until death do us part." And it was a promise I wish we'd never made, because nothing will allow me to break it. Oh, my love, I miss you. My heart aches for you, Takumi. I clutch my ring against my chest and wish it was you I held. If I could fly to you, I would climb on my wyvern's back right this minute. There's no place I would rather be than with you again, but now, aboard a ship bound for Hoshido, a ship carrying the vanguard of the Nohrian army, I'd rather plunge a knife through my heart than keep our vow. I've spent so many nights searching for a way to break it. Attacking her birth family weighs heavily on poor Corrin; it's in her eyes. Leading this invasion is the last thing she wants, and Xander is weary of this war already. But I can't appeal to them to stop this. Corrin says we must conquer Hoshido for the future of Nohr. As for my brother, he'd order an entire company of his best troops into the Bottomless Canyon if he thought it would please Father and bring back the man he was. For that matter, I can't risk word reaching Garon's ear that I oppose this war. Make no mistake, I am no coward. I'd march right into his throne room and tell him I won't have anything more to do with his madness. For you, my love, I'd risk anything: life in chains, torture, or even death. But I wouldn't be the only one to suffer. Xander could manage, but how could I leave Leo, Elise, and my sweet Corrin alone? Besides, even if I simply threw myself into the sea—and I've considered it—nothing would spare you. Hoshido will still fall, and while the thought of finding you again breaks my heart, the fate that awaits you is enough to freeze my blood. You don't know what I've seen, the terrible things Garon allows. The thought of you dying cold and alone in some Nohrian dungeon or butchered at the hands of men like Hans is too horrible for me to imagine. I won't abandon you to that fate. I don't know if my heart can bear it, but for your sake, I'll find you again. I wipe away my tears; you shouldn't see me cry when we meet. Do not fear, my love; it will be quick. I'll hold you close, let you rest your head in my lap one more time, and comfort you until the end. I'll see you're buried with all the honor my husband deserves, not kept like some gruesome war trophy. Then, my darling Takumi, we will find each other on the other side of this world, and no one will ever keep us apart again. That is one vow even fate won't stop me from keeping.
  2. It seems there are some things that draw me out of exile. Most of those sum up my own writing fears, in addition to the ones mentioned about description. Except, number 5 is pretty well true, so I can't really call it a fear. I'm just waiting for the day someone besides a troll tells me so. Another fear of mine probably stems from being a fan fiction writer. I know it's not "legitimate" writing, but it's all I've got. I'm afraid of being judged on that. I'm also more afraid that my work will be too long rather than to short.
  3. I also have a FF.Net account, but before anyone asks, I'm not sharing. Only thing I've gotten from additional exposure is trolled. Plus, my work isn't really good anyway, so I won't promote it. Most people have stuff from before a certain time that's crap. I have the distinct honor of having everything I do be crap. I will say I know some of you from there, *waves at @Aura Of Twilight* But if you do recognize me, don't point me out. I also know some great writers there, so I'd be glad to promote their work. Mostly, it's Fire Emblem writer's but there might be some others. MadameHyde Top notch writer, especially for In the Eleventh Hour Flame Falcon The kind of writer I can only pretend to be, and fail at. Seriously, the epic scale of his work is unbelievable. Acqua-Sole Lady StarFlower - Excellent work with Leo/Sakura JordanPhoenix - Last, but certainly not least, one of the best writers I ever met for the Ace Attorney fandom. If I were to post an entire list, we'd be here all day, but let me also give a honorable mention to the likes of Cormag Ravenstaff, TheErudite, and TheRepeat. The latter has some great work, even though I've only read one, but it's the kind of work that really ends on a downer, and the writing is so good, it'll leave you down for days. I have more, but as I said, we'd be here all day. And now, back to my exile.
  4. Very nice. :D When I saw this topic, I knew I had to come out of my exile one last time, and boy, was I ever right to do it.
  5. Can't make up my mind on which one, since I alternate, but these three are among my current teams. Not sure which one I want, so please, just surprise me with one of them. :) Don't want to be greedy. Team 1: Camilla, Clive, Chrom, Mathilda Team 2: Peri, Maria, Barst, Laslow Team 3: Alfonse, Bold Hero Lyn, Ninian, Clarine Quite the assortment isn't it? :P
  6. Seeing as I'm going into exile, can someone please lock or delete this, please? I prefer deletion, as I'd rather wipe all traces of me away.
  7. I'm the one who doesn't have dreams anymore. I had quite a few growing up, like designing video games, even some that carried through into my early adult years, like becoming a published writer. But I suppose with time comes the realization that none of them will ever happen, so now, I've pretty much written them all off as idiotic fantasies.
  8. I won't try to talk you out of leaving, nor will I encourage you to do so. The way I figure it is people will do what they've made up their minds to do. However, as someone who observed the general chaos, it was a matter of everything getting blown well out of proportion, not just by you, and not just by others. I don't think it's a good decision to leave just because of what amounts to a petty squabble over a minor issue. Seriously, we're fighting over a video game. Now, as someone who's committed himself to a personal exile from this place, I don't think everyone wants you gone. I know I don't. But in the end, it's up to you. Just don't make your decision in haste because sometimes, it can't be taken back, and I know this from experience.
  9. That's a bit interesting to me, since I don't really find Naesala all that sympathetic. Yes, there's the angle that he had no choice in a lot of his actions, but I also think that most of what he did, namely all his acts of piracy was of his own accord. I always thought him to be a slimeball, and even knowing what I did in Radiant Dawn, I still couldn't feel sorry for him.
  10. He is amusing, I'll give you that, but he's more suited to be a court jester than a knight. I know. I kind of wish more of the Royal Knights or Crimea in general got more screen time in RD. But still, great game as it was, but seeing it's Fire Emblem, I'm biased, especially towards Tellius. If I may just step in a bit, I do agree that Geoffrey can be a tad boring. I mean, I would have liked to have seen a little more to his character, beyond the chivalry. I wouldn't exactly call it obsession between him and Elincia myself, although I do agree that it seemed a bit weird that he can marry her having been raised as her brother, which he is in a sense. But in a larger context, it's probably best he married Elincia. Being queen, she'd be pressured to find a husband, and you can imagine everyone would be in line to try their hand at winning hers. Not to mention, most would be looking to their own self-interest. So, it could be seen as a way for him to protect her. But yeah, I can only imagine it would be very weird for both of them sleeping together, literally and otherwise. :P
  11. I can pretty much get behind this, although I wouldn't count Bastian among my favorites. He's a bit too weird for me. And Makalov is just an idiot so I can't really count him. I wouldn't say every part of the Crimean cast is my favorite, but there's so many good ones to choose. I like Elincia, especially how she becomes in RD. Let's face it, she learns to take nothing lying down, so I'd definitely pity the poor fool who'd ever even think of challenging her. Lucia is another favorite of mine, although mainly I like studying her character, since we get relatively little. And also among my list of favorites is Soren. The guy can be downright amusing without even trying to be, and you can just about hear the amount of snark in his voice just reading his lines. I also get a kick out of Gatrie, mainly because he's such a doofus when it comes to women, but does he ever try.
  12. Well, I'm coming out of exile just long enough to say, in good sport, congratulations. :) I may not be happy with it, and I'd be lying if I said I was. But even so, congratulations.
  13. It's hard for me to nail down my favorite character just because I have quite a few. Mainly, I like examining the characters I like, drilling down deep into them. I admit to being a fan of Elincia and Lucia, because they have such a close bond that nothing can shake, and if anyone had more of a right to be bitter, it's Lucia. But I also find a certain sadness to their relationship as well, just because of how it's had to change with Elincia taking the throne. I also like Elincia's development, especially in RD. She really gets shown exactly what she's made of, and I like that in a character. I'm also a fan of Soren, just for his attitude alone. He's the guy who can amuse you without ever intending to. I also admit to liking Chrom because I find his own struggle quite interesting, in that he, like Elincia, probably never wanted the throne, but he had to step up and become a king himself. To me, I find the unspoken tension in that situation intriguing. And there are plenty of others.
  14. They troll me just for the heck of it, it seems. I know I've got one little punk who enjoys letting me have it, and I suspect it's because one of my pieces wound up getting a little more exposure last year. I have the same opinion of 50 Shades as has been expressed, that it shouldn't have been published and that it's a complete piece of trash. Having said that, I was rather impressed when I read about its origins in the paper. I've considered trying to adapt some of my short pieces into a collection of short stories. But it'll never happen, and I'm okay with it. I'm still a little torn over it myself, my opinion on it. I love the writing process, tedious as it is, and I do enjoy taking characters even if they're not mine, and exploring scenarios that actually are mine. But in the grand scheme of things, I know this is all completely pointless. It was one thing when it was practice for bigger and better things, but now that it's just for its own sake, it just doesn't mean what it used to.
