it all ends this friday

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Mar 03 2015 · 75 views

The following is from Extermination, Chapter 12.

---[JIMING]---

JiMing trailed at the very back of the group as they entered the remains of the arena - it had been blasted apart, and was now nothing more than piles of rubble and ruin. Voltex and Xaeraz walked at the front, leading the group towards the Coliseum that towered over them; spread throughout the middle were Luroka, TBK, Chambliss, Shadow Ignited, Portalfig and JMJ.

“Now remember,” Voltex called as they reached the entrance. “This first entrance hall is the largest open area in the entire Coliseum - stay close to the walls and do your best to stay out of sight.”

JiMing nodded along with the others; he watched as Voltex took a deep breath, turning slowly back to the entrance.

“In we go,” Portalfig murmured.

Voltex shouldered open the entrance and the group rushed inside; JiMing lurched to a halt just inside the doorway as the rest of the group stopped without warning - and as he glanced around the entrance hall, JiMing noticed why.

“It was very foolish of you to come here,” said Control from where they stood in the center of the room. “Come a little closer, please - I insist.”

JiMing glanced back as the barrel of a gun was pressed up against his back - he recognized Zakaro, who shrugged and nudged him forward. The Ta-Matoran silently cursed as the group was ushered into the center of the hall as the forces of Control decloaked, revealing themselves. Surrounding them on the ground floor as well as up on the second level balcony, agents were huddled together with guns pointing right at them.

“By now, I’m sure you are assuming that you have walked into a trap,” Control said, taking off their helmet. “Your assumptions would be correct.”

“Tekulo?” Voltex asked, sounding resigned. “You’re Control?”
“I am,” Tekulo nodded easily. “And you are too trusting, Voltex.”

Sounds like trouble.
Chapter 12 releases March 6th.

ask me anything this friday

Posted by Lucina , in BZP Library Mar 02 2015 · 90 views

This Friday, MARCH 6TH, I will hold an AMA regarding my epic Extermination(and for those who have read them, the other entries in its series as well).

You'll be able to ask me questions in one of three ways:

1. On Steam, where I shall try to be online
2. On Skype, where I shall also try to be online
3. In the comments of a blog entry that I shall post on Friday

For the first two, I'll open up a group chat if there are enough people interested to warrant it. I shall post another blog entry a few days later detailing the answers to as many questions as possible.

I would appreciate it if questions asked are more serious versus being just jokes or nonsense; over the past year I've had many questions asked regarding the Uprising series, and many have been forgotten or brushed aside because they were dealing with possible spoilers. If there was ever a piece of trivia you wanted to know, or a decision I made you wanted an explanation for, now would be the time to finally get that answer.

Anyway - for the few of you that will actually want to ask me something, I figured I'd give you this advance heads-up so that you can think about whatever you want to ask. :P

University Chosen

Posted by Lucina , in Life Feb 27 2015 · 91 views

So I'll be attending York University in Toronto next year; currently for their Film & Media Studies major (which is basically theoretical, analytical and critical focus), although I will be speaking with them about switching over into their Film Production program, as that adheres to what I wish to do more and I know I can put a portfolio together for it quickly if necessary. :)

YMCA is also going very well; head of maintenance is hoping I'll be able to come in for the summer in addition to running camps as part of the youth team. That'd peg me at... a lot of hours and a lot of money for university. :P

The following is from Chapter 8 of Extermination.

---

As he followed JiMing through the halls of the Rebellion headquarters in BZ-Metru, Voltex could not help but feel a little restless and frustrated, itching to be helping with the battle at the Coliseum where their allies were waging one final battle against the forces of the White Council.

“Look, JiMing,” he started. “Whatever this is… surely it could’ve waited? Until after the battle?”

“No,” the Ta-Matoran replied. “We’re almost there.”

Sighing, Voltex fell silent as they rounded another corner - what turned out to be the last, as JiMing immediately stopped in front of the large black door that blocked their way. The Ta-Matoran turned to Voltex with a grin on his face, gesturing to the door.

“It’s a door,” Voltex said flatly. “How wonderful.”

“It’s what’s behind the door,” JiMing whispered, quivering with excitement. “You know, we don’t actually have the forces to take on the White Council - not even with the reinforcements you brought from the Red Star, not that there were actually very many. But with what’s behind this door… we’ll win.”

“Why?”

“Because you and I are each about to become a walking army,” JiMing answered, a grin threatening to consume his entire face as he turned and pressed his palm to the door. “Just watch, and I’ll explain everything.”

The black door slowly raised into the ceiling, revealing an empty room with what looked like two hatches in the floor. Disappointed, Voltex followed JiMing inside; the Ta-Matoran immediately pulled out a tablet and began to rapidly input commands, raising a finger to shush the Ba-Matoran before he could open his mouth to speak.

Then the hatches both opened.

“Watch this,” JiMing breathed.

Voltex stared as two platforms rose from the floor… and standing atop each platform was a suit of armor. The one on the right was almost all a brilliant shade of metallic violet, with silver highlights on the shoulders, arms, thighs and helmet. It was sleek, as though to emphasize maneuverability and speed. The one on the left was more bulky, like a tank; a gatling gun was immediately visible, propped up on its right shoulder, and what appeared to be machine guns stuck out of the arms. The left suit was a dark red with orange highlights.

“I… don’t understand,” he said after a moment.

JiMing turned to him with a grin, gesturing first to the purple armor and then to the red suit. “This is the Iron Voltex and Phoenix Zero armor, Voltex. Remember the Repulsor Arm?”

The Ba-Matoran absently grabbed his right arm, tracing along where the Repulsor Arm had once been connected. “Yeah.”

“That was just one part of an extremely early stage prototype design… and this is the final product,” JiMing explained. “Two suits of highly advanced armor - one for you, one for me. Lightweight… well, yours is, at any rate. Yours was designed to help you move around quickly in battle; I sacrificed that maneuverability with the Phoenix Zero armor in order to give it more raw firepower.”

“That’s amazing,” Voltex breathed, stepping forward and feeling one of the arms of the Iron Voltex suit. “Can it fly? I was able to kind of propel myself before.”

“Heck yeah, they can,” JiMing answered, crossing his arms and grinning smugly. “So what do you say?”
“I think…” Voltex said, smirking, “that I’m going to kill White One.”

CHAPTER 8 OF EXTERMINATION GOES LIVE TOMORROW.

(This does mean that Chapter 9 is coming on Friday - and the epic will then return to its regular weekly schedule. There is merely a particular date that I wish to meet....)

One day, I'll remember (Updated)

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Feb 07 2015 · 203 views

UPDATED FEBRUARY 7TH: After the Final Battle

"One day, I'll remember. Remember everything that happened. The good, the bad; those who survived... and those that did not." - Bilbo Baggins

Wise words, Pilbo Dragons. Words to live by - as such, let us bow our heads in remembrance of those who have fallen in my quest to save the world from Grima's wrath.
Note that some of the characters are technically "retired", but to me they're dead like everyone else so yes.

SPOILERS AHEAD MAYBE I DUNNO

---
Donnel
Posted Image
Class: Villager
Family: Mother - alive and well back in their village
Died: Border Pass

After helping Chrom to save his village, Donnel joined the Shepards; his first mission was to join the party at the Border Pass, where Maribelle was being held captive by the Mad King Gangrel in an attempt to instigate war with Ylisse. Halfway through the battle, Donnel sacrificed himself in order to buy both Ricken and Maribelle enough time to reunite with the rest of the group. He is remembered by Ricken, who has since become one of the most powerful members of the Shepards, and his mother remains alive and well (albeit now depressed) back at home.

Olivia
Posted Image
Class: Dancer
Family: None Known
Died: Border Wastes

Working under Khan Basilio, Olivia's dancing was so magical that it could inspire her fellow troops in battle to become more powerful on the spot. She joined the Shepards for their final battle with the Mad King Gangrel, where she was unfortunately struck down by the Mad King himself in his fury. She was quickly avenged by the combined duo of Chrom and the Avatar, although her time with the Shepards was so short that few even remember her.

Stahl
Posted Image
Class: Cavalier
Family: Sully (Wife; Deceased), Kjelle (Daughter); alive with Shepards
Died: Mercenary Fortress

When the Shepards discovered the Mercenary Fortress, both Sully and Stahl were assigned to the team escorting the mysterious girl called Severa through its halls as she tried to reach her friend. While Severa managed to achieve her goals, the three of them found themselves surrounded soon afterward. With the rest of the Shepards too far away to help them, Stahl bravely took on the band of heartless rogues, sacrificing himself so that Sully and Severa could make it away unharmed. Having been good friends with most Shepards and liked by the rest, Stahl's passing has been widely mourned. Both Sully and Kjelle have vowed to vanquish any rogues they come across, while Ricken and Owain appear to have made it their personal mission to keep both Sully and Severa safe at all costs, so that Stahl's sacrifice might not be in vain.

Stahl was the first of what many refer to as the "great heroes" to fall; being one of the strongest Shepards, his death has shaken the group to its core, and has served as a reminder to all that nobody is safe from the deathly claws of fate.

Maribelle
Posted Image
Class: Troubadour
Family: Ricken (Husband; Deceased), Brady (Son); alive with Shepards
Died: The Midmire

Maribelle's death might be the most tragic yet to befall the Shepards; what should have been an ordinary journey through the Midmire just like any other turned out to be a Risen ambush. During the battle, Maribelle was forced to separate from Ricken in order to save the lives of Sumia and Henry; she paid for it when a Risen buried its axe in her back, killing her instantly. Her son Brady, who had only just joined the Shepards, has been consumed by guilt; her husband Ricken has since been on a vengeful mission to keep his son alive, as well as honoring the memory of Stahl by protecting Sully.

As a good friend of both Chrom and Lissa (particularly the latter), the higher ranks of the Shepards have been in mourning since her passing; Sumia in particular feels guilty about her continued survival.

---
Well, I managed to make it to the final battle without losing anyone else... unfortunately, one does not defeat a god without suffering casualties. Three of the Shepards' greatest fell in the final strike on Grima.

Sully
Posted Image
Class: Cavalier
Family: Stahl (Husband; Deceased), Kjelle (Daughter; Alive with Shepards)
Died: Final Battle with Grima

When the time came for the final showdown against Grima, Sully refused to miss it - besides, the only other options were to send in Lady Tiki or Severa, both of which Sully immediately shot down. Having grown extremely close to Ricken, she partnered with the sage for the battle. The two of them worked directly alongside Vaike & Lissa, Cordelia & Gaius, and the Khan team of Basilio & Flavia while the others went on the offensive. At first it seemed as though they had overestimated Grima's power; however, it soon became obvious that they had actually underestimated the demon dragon. The defensive line lost sight of Lon'qu & Cherche as they were swarmed, and soon lost contact with Lucina & Gerome as well. Before they could move to a more offensive approach, they were surrounded by Grimleal.

Vaike was the enemy's first target, although he managed to barely survive their onslaught. Cordelia and Gaius also narrowly survived several hard hits and were forced to retreat further away from the Grimleal archers, leaving Sully, Ricken and the Khans to hold off the horde. When the Khans were separated from the rest of the group, Sully bravely fought until her final breath, holding the Grimleal off long enough for the others to recover. Unfortunately, she soon perished from her many wounds.

Ricken
Posted Image
Class: Cavalier
Family: Maribelle (Wife; Deceased), Brady (Son; Alive with Shepards)
Died: Final Battle with Grima

The argument between Ricken and Henry before the final battle would have been legendary had it not been overshadowed by the threat of Grima hanging over them. Both knew that whoever joined the strike team atop the fell dragon's back out of the two of them would perish in the battle, as they would need to overexert themselves to dangerous levels to hold off whatever enemies the fell dragon called forth. Ricken eventually won the argument, reminding Henry that his wife Sumia still survived; before leaving, he made Henry promise to look after Brady for him. Ricken partnered once more with Sully for the final battle, having grown very close to her. The two of them worked directly alongside Vaike & Lissa, Cordelia & Gaius, and the Khan team of Basilio & Flavia while the others went on the offensive.

When they were surrounded by the Grimleal and forced to defend the others after the Khans became separated from the group, Ricken used his magic to devastating effect upon the enemy, dealing massive damage to the horde. Unfortunately, once Sully perished, he was unable to last for long; in his final moment, he unleashed a hurricane wind that blasted the enemy Grimleal far across the fell dragon's back, giving Vaike, Lissa, Cordelia and Gaius the precious seconds that they needed to regroup and go on the offensive.

While the bodies of the other fallen Shepards were recovered after the battle, Ricken's body was nowhere to be seen; a slight few hold onto a desperate hope that he might have actually survived, but most hold the more realistic opinion that his body was simply destroyed by the force of the magic he used.

Basilio
Posted Image
Class: Warrior
Family: None Known; Fellow Khan Flavia & Apprentice Lon'qu both alive
Died: Final Battle with Grima

Having earlier faked his death after heeding the advice of Lucina, Basilio cleverly remained hidden until the time was ripe, allowing the Avatar to reclaim the Fire Emblem and spare Chrom, conquering history, time, and destiny in the process. This move forced almost everyone to change how they looked at Basilio, proving to them that he was far more crafty than he first seemed. When the time came to strike at Grima one last time, Basilio partnered with Flavia and led the defensive line.

The battle took a grim turn for the worse when Vaike, Cordelia and Gaius were all momentarily out for the count. Together with Sully & Ricken, the two Khans held off the horde, allowing their allies time to recover; unfortunately, the two Khans became separated from the rest of the group in the process. Wisely deciding to keep on the move, the two Khans managed to make contact with Lucina & Gerome from afar before they were swarmed; Basilio fought with a ferocity that only one who had beaten death itself could summon. Unfortunately, even that was not enough, and Basilio was overcome by the sheer number of enemies attacking him from all sides. He was pierced by a fatal arrow just as Lucina & Gerome reached them.

As he lay dying, Basilio requested that Lon'qu be named as the new West-Khan of Ferox in his place. When informed of Basilio's final request by Flavia hours later, Lon'qu accepted the position in honor of his fallen mentor and friend.

That's it for my first playthrough of Fire Emblem: Awakening! RIP Stahl, Sully, Ricken and Basilio. You will be missed.
The others... not so much.
