What in sweet Nova are you doing to him, Dragato?! :<
Asldkvkdsklkj!! I have total art block goin' on....well, it's a mixture of art block and "everything I draw looks like crap" block. I'm not too satisfied how this turned out, but I guess I can't complain...at least I drew something. ;^;"
Things might be slow since I'm lacking inspiration atm. >I
It's best to enjoy something while you still have it, because it won't always last forever. u///u
Yeah, Bate might play; hence him not wearing his godforsaken heavy pauldrons today. Buuuuut I seriously can't picture him running around and playing.....maybe he'll just watch. n.n Besides, he'll just be lagging behind the whole time. XDD
Doodles...a lot of them. Yeah, ummm...they're sloppy, and kinda old....some of them. ><;
Yayz!! The hotel I'm staying in has internet. Thank Nova, I can use the phone and internet agaiiiiiin!!! >A< Ugh, I need to go through so many messages. I shall do that now since I have nothing to do. x^x;
The one with Arthur in armor shouting probably needs some context. ><; Ummm....it's a scrapped story, but in a nutshell:
It takes place when everyone is 1,800. Kalmari is invaded by demon beasts, and everyone now has to evacuate. Their teachers refuse to leave their home, but told their students and Bate to leave.
Bate takes the 5 halfway across West Nova before leaving them....he says he needs to go back to help his friends, and tells them that they can make it the rest of the way without him. Bate gives them his Warp Star so they have something to remember him by. After a tearful goodbye, all 5 continue to travel to the edge of West Nova, alone.
One night, after a few days of traveling.....Bate's Warp Star suddenly cracks.
All 5 knew what had happened; Bate died. Meta, being the overly emotional one in the group, starts crying and argues that they need to go back to Kalmari. Arthur refuses and tells him they need to go on. Both of them start to fight, and eventually, Meta storms off after being told to shut up and quit crying about it.
Dragato follows Meta and tells him to not be angry at Arthur. He tells Meta that, if anything, Arthur's the one who's feeling the utmost pain from the loss. He reminds Meta that Bate was his mentor, and the one who trained him over the past 8 years.
"Arthur didn't just lose a Mentor, or a comrade....it's more than that."
Dragato then leaves Meta. He hopes his friend understands that even though Arthur's not showing it, he truly is weeping and crying from the loss of Bate.
Is the Warp Star connected to the user? I dunno, I just assumed if the holder dies, the Warp Star breaks as well. Ah, whatever, I'm stickin' to my crackpot theory. -3-;
"A whole month off?" Gordon questioned. "That doesn't sound like you."
Bate watched the 5 Puffballs chase each other a few feet away from where they were sitting. "Well...." He shrugged. "They're still young. They won't always have the luxury to such simplicities when they're older.
"Yeah?" Gordon smiled and watched the five as well. "Or.....maybe it's something else?"
The elder continued to watch the tiny warriors.
"Of course not...." His voice, a mere whisper against the warm, Kalmari winds.
"....Then again, sometimes I think you know me better than I know myself."
'Cause why not? If anything, I should be the one to at least draw something about the whole summer thing.
Yayz! You get to see all 5 of them again. When was the last time I drew them all together? February? XDDD
