I've noticed that there a number of people on my friends of list that I don't know. I friend back as long as we've interacted before, and you tell me you're friending me.

GYWO Yahtzee, some Fanime pics

Gonna give [community profile] getyourwordsout's Yahtzee challenge a try. Maybe.



I might return sometime this month with some pics from Fanime, which happened around 2 weeks ago. (but don't hold me to it...) I'd hoped to cosplay Soren with his outfit from Fire Emblem Heroes, but I'm still not quite done with it. (Hopefully in time for AX...) So I pulled out my 10+ year old cosplay of him, the Radiant Dawn version, ahaha. I am still amused and in disbelief that FE's popularity boomed since then and that people actually know who Soren is now. I mean, I wore Soren to a gathering around 10+ years ago, and that gathering had around 5 people or so. I remember there being a Titania and an Elincia...

So different now. XD There were even a few Soren charms being sold in the Artist Alley~ (I am also enjoying the resurgence of Soren fics) In any case, I hadn't thought I'd pull this old cosplay out, and that it'd still hold up over time. Lots of people complimented me on it, which felt a little weird, because it's such on old cosplay. :3;; (But now people actually know who I'm cosplaying!!) There were also lots of people who said, "Is that Soren?" "Hi Soren!" "Soren, you're my favorite" etc over the weekend. I thought maybe his Radiant Dawn version wouldn't get recognized as much if people mostly know him through Fire Emblem Heroes, but I guess not? There was also this girl who asked me who I was cosplaying, and after I answered, her friend told her, "I could have told you that!" Don't remember if it was her or another who said she wasn't sure but she thought I was Soren because of the brand on my forehead. I guess the brand is very recognizable, and Soren's outfit does share similarities even across games. There was also an artist in the AA who was ecstatic to see me cosplaying Soren. Her response was so cute, I had to buy her Ike x Soren charm. Soren, you're loved~ Other notable responses include: "Oh, it's Ike's boyfriend." "Soren, you're my favorite racist!" (To which the friend of the person went, "Whaaat?")

Last year's FE gathering was pretty large, and this year's was the same. I took some pics of the other cosplayers, but don't have any of myself from the gathering. But Fanime does have its official photographers, so pics exist~. Though not all very flattering. XD I'll uh... just link to some I'm in that I actually like, hahaha.

Here's a group pic of all the guy characters.
Failed T pose (So, Ike and us two Sorens were up, and Ike went for a hug, to everyone's awwwing, but then of course he turned it into a silly pose, and then he suggested a T pose for the next pic, to which I quite failed at)

He was the only Ike at the gathering, and I didn't see any other Ikes around the con. Maybe I should've gone around asking, "Is Ike here?" XD; There were at least two other Sorens though, both also cosplaying the Radiant Dawn version like me.

FEH Arena 2



I managed to stay in Tier 20 since my last post, making it 6 weeks so far~. o/ The new arena scoring system really threw a dent in my scoring, so I've had to give Nowi an upgrade in her skills to stay, and I decided to go for a 5*+10 Olivia instead of sticking with my 4*+10 one. So far, I'm still on the border of dropping from Tier 20 every week, and I'm only staying because of blessings. Hopefully getting the last of my Nowi merges will make it easier to stay~. I've been lucky that the recent arena bonuses had units that I pulled, and I could run a legendary for the blessing. Not sure how the next arena rotation will affect me... I'll probably drop since I've been depending on the blessings to stay with my current team. D:

Staying in Tier 20 wasn't really a goal of mine at first, but I've been enjoying going against 720+ teams and avoiding most horse emblem teams. Also, I love seeing themed teams.

My 2nd 5*+10 unit ended up being Olivia!

Olivia~Collapse )

Genprompt Bingo

Got myself a [community profile] genprompt_bingo card. :3 Will probably write oneshots for some miscellaneous series. My goal, like always for these bingo cards, is to at least complete one square, if not a bingo. XD;

ReLIFE might be one of them. o/ I've just finished marathoning the anime. It pretty much felt like a digest version of the manga, but for the amount of episodes the anime had to work with, it definitely got the essence of the series across. (Also, Ooga is even cuter in the anime~, though I felt Hishiro didn't get enough character development in the anime) I've enjoyed following the manga and was wondering how it would end without feeling like a cop-out. The ending was pretty good~.

[Legend of Sun Knight] fic: New Horizons -That Which Was Lost- Extras

I have returned with the extras to wrap this story up~

Title: New Horizons -That Which Was Lost- Extras
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,815
Summary: After Grisia was lost with only the Divine Sun Sword left behind, he was never found. Until Lesus comes across an "amnesic" Grisia while evacuating the citizens. AU
Notes: For the [community profile] whole_new_world Alternate Reality/Changing Canon prompt "Never Found." Prompt table over here. These extras are a completely optional (rambling) addition to the story that 1) might destroy the mood, 2) are full of crack, and 3) still contain some angst. Because what is crack without angst... :'D

FEH Arena



I managed to stay in Tier 20 this week! \o\ For the first time after the Book 2 update! After Fjorm, blessings, boosted BSTs, and all that bumped the threshold higher, my team really couldn't make it. But since Soren happened to be an arena bonus unit, and it's Earth season, I managed to get to 5,062 for my score~. My highest score so far. Ranked 4,695 out of 5,554, screenshot taken with 20 minutes left.

I still don't know who else to bless and what blessing to give them, but since Ike is the Earth legendary, you bet I was going to bless Soren with the Earth element! (Before Ike's release, I was considering wind...)

The arena updated with a new way of matching people just today. I think I'm getting matched with lower scores now and can't fish for scores on the higher range, but I don't know yet. Probably this could have been my first and last week staying, for a good long while, haha. XD I probably need to work on more merges for Nowi and do something about Olivia. I'm working on a 5* version of her. Might also need to work on another red.

Hopefully Soren's new legendary tome will boost the arena points a bit too. So happy Soren's getting a new tome. ♥ I'm so happy that I might even write fic about Soren getting a new tome, ahahahaha.


Writing wise, I'm almost done with the extra scenes for That Which Was Lost. :3;;; Turns out there will be 12 snippets! o/ I'm on snippet 10, so, sooooon.

[Legend of Sun Knight] fic: New Horizons -That Which Was Lost- (oneshot)

Yay, it's finally done~. I've been working on this for months. It just wouldn't end... :'D

Title: New Horizons -That Which Was Lost-
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 5,711
Summary: After Grisia was lost with only the Divine Sun Sword left behind, he was never found. Until Lesus comes across an "amnesic" Grisia while evacuating the citizens. AU
Notes: For the [community profile] whole_new_world Alternate Reality/Changing Canon prompt "Never Found." Prompt table over here. This piece is somewhat experimental, though only on the surface, as its final form is simply another fic in which Lesus and Grisia sit around talking. So yeah. They talk. A lot. I also smush together some displaced events that kind of still happen but in a different way. Lesus/Grisia. Or very strong hints~, with a good dose of angst.

Soren

Ahhhhh, on this momentous day, I have finally +10'd Soren. Ahhhhhh. It's been a project since April 26, 2017 when Soren was released in Fire Emblem Heroes. So it took 9 months (and 1 day). I managed to get one Soren from his first banner after I don't know how many orbs. Pretty much all I had saved up back then (I've never managed to reach that number of orbs again). But he did come home. Afterwards, I summoned on the Tempest Trial Moment of Fate banner when it came around. Don't remember how many Sorens I got from that. 2, I think? Or maybe 3. At least one was a four star, but that mattered little. All my feathers for Soren! I figured there was going to be a Path of Radiance Tempest Trial, so I saved orbs for that. But when Soren randomly showed up for the Short Haired Girls vs Long Haired Guys Voting Gauntlet, I was totally unprepared for that banner, haha! (But I was so excited for him to be included in a Gauntlet) I was unfortunately unable to dedicate my orbs to that banner, as I was still trying to get Trick Or Treat Henry from the Halloween banner (Somehow I managed to get Trick or Treat Nowi (on the free smmon), Trick or Treat Sakura, Trick or Treat Jakob, another Trick or Treat Nowi, and the last three were all from summoning when no green stone showed up ahhhhh and still no Henry! I wasn't even trying to summon Sakura or Jakob. And here I thought colorless was supposed to be hell).

Anyway, I've been trying to summon Myrrh from this latest banner, a Sacred Stones ones, since she has Hone Dragons. Well, after several pulls with only one green stone each time, no Myrrh in sight, but I got my final two Sorens! So here he is now, all maxed out. :D (Though I do need to max out his hero merit again). He's +atk -def, with summoner support. My first Soren was +atk, -spd. I kind of miss him a little. I got several +spd, -def Sorens along the way too, but I ultimately decided to stick with +atk, partially because Ike is also +atk. And that sweet 61 atk is just amazing. (Pft, who cares about doubles! He used to be -spd and did just fine!) I hope Soren gets some kind of unique weapon in the future! He won't mind graduating from a blade tome with that attack. I'm also considering giving him a wolf or owl tome or something, just so I can refine it and make Soren ~shine~.

Thank you Soren, for being 4*-5* rarity. It made +10'ing you possible even as an F2P player. :D



Now, I suppose I have feathers for any other random units. For arena purposes, my next focus will probably be Nowi. From my main team, Nowi is at +6. Four more to go! She ended up on my main team given that she was the first blue 5 star unit I got, and she decided to show up twice even, both off focus. (Before that, I was using a 4* F!Corrin). I pulled specifically for more of her for the first time on the Gift of Peace Tempest Trial banner and got 2 more merges. For a moment, I thought I'd end up +10'ing her first before Soren, considering she's a lot more likely to show up on more banners. As for the others, Olivia is already 4*+10, though I wonder if I should work on a 5*+ Olivia. I do have another 9 copies of her, pfft, and her 4 star self can't get any more points in arena as she is. It'll just take a ton of feathers that I don't have. Last is Ike, who's at +1. I don't think it's possible to +10 him without spending money since he's locked at 5*. :') Sorry Soren... I did manage to get him to +1! Ike is mostly just there to reposition Soren and be Soren's buffbot. :'D I mean, he's not the best buff bot but Soren wouldn't want anyone else.

For my other teams, I started working on Fae (she's at +1 now, with 7 more available for merging. I'm going to pause for now though, and wait to see what the anniversary will bring to the game play. Besides, I'm really hoping for a boy dragon down the line. Where's my Kurthnaga and Nils? XD). I'd like to 5 star Lyon (because Lyon! and he even shares an artist with Soren), and I might 5 star Ursula eventually considering she's an important teammate on my first cavalry team. I randomly 5 starred Lucius after the healer upgrade when I couldn't pull someone else, because Lucius!! He was one of my first mages in my very first Fire Emblem game. How can I not build him? He isn't used on any team though, but he's pretty fun to use with Pain+ and double Savage Blow. Maybe I'll build Raven after his weapon upgrade, and they can be on a team together. :3 Yeah, still lots of units to build.

I have like, no orbs for the anniversary, pffft.

Words: 2,078
Summary: Sun and Judgment are getting married. The "why" and "how" really aren't that important right now. For this is not a story about their romance; this is the story of us observers.

Notes: Co-written with kiyutsuna. Odd chapters are hers. Even chapters are mine! All illustrations are done by kiyutsuna.
