Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji's Wrath Soundtrack
Legacy Of The Gods: Wrath Of Ibeji Soundtrack
Kimi ga Iru Kara -  Performed by Shimokawa Mikuni, single from the anime Fairy Tail - I wasn't too sure if this song would fit into the theme of the story, but listening to it....I like it, and the youthful tone of it is perfect for the young age of the new characters. I love the beat as well. :thanks:
Oh My! - Performed by Seventeen - I've been getting into J-Pop and K-Pop, and I thought this song was amazing and perfect for the vibe and feeling of this story. You can't help but dance along to it. This would be a perfect ending theme if this was a show.
ODD Future - Performed by Uverworld, single from the anime Boko No Hero Academia - I love the raw feeling of this song and about doing your best. It fits in perfectly with the story. Absolutely amazing.
Regular - Performed by NCT 127 - This is one song I truly enjoyed and know that the younger characters in the story w

Ibeji's Wrath Chapter 1
Legacy Of The Gods: Ibeji‘s Wrath
Chapter 1
After giving a long and loud sigh, 11 year old Gio Wilson flopped on his large bed, completely wiped out after a long day of school and baseball practice. He then rolled over and wiped the beads of sweat from his light-brown forehead and just allowed himself a few minutes to just breathe. Sure, it was great to be one of the star players on his junior baseball team, but it was just exhausting trying to keep up with everyone’s expectations. How did his mom, who was a former super model and traveled the world do it? When did she ever have time to sleep?
But still, it was something to keep himself busy, to keep the loneliness away. His older sister Hazelynn was still away at college in California, and even though it’s been only a couple of years, he still missed messing with her, making her mad and annoying the heck out of her. Sure, she would call and talk to their parents, and she would even say a couple of words to him, but i

Legacy Of The Gods Book II: Heart Of Igboju
Chapter 22
At first, Erin could only blink her eyes in disbelief, wondering if what she was seeing was real. Yes, she was overwhelmed with relief, but was this actually happening? Was Billie and her other friends finally awake? She didn’t know if she should say “hello” back or just wait for her impending death. So she just stood there in complete shock….until Billie stepped forward and placed a gentle hand on her shoulder.
“Erin? You okay? It’s me, Billie,” She gave her friend a concerned look, tilting her head.
At the touch, the French-descent girl finally knew that it was indeed happening. Her long-time friend did not perish as she feared, she was alive….alive and ready to defend their home and families from the impossible evil that Erin never imagined existed. By all science facts and logic, none of what she just saw should be real, these creatures and gods, yet here they were, and now her fr

Chapter 21
After landing on the hard floor of the blackened dungeon, Billie could only gasp in deep pain as she lay stunned for a moment. Despair entered her heart as she thought back on what she and her friends went through to find the powerful Madame Brigitte. Was this how it was going to end? To be completely destroyed by the very person they were setting their hopes on? The person who was the only one who could give them a chance in defeating Shigidi? It was hopeless, all of it. How could she have been so blind and foolish?
She couldn’t help a tear falling down her dark cheeks as she struggled to pick her head up. All of this...for nothing. So discouraged was she that she didn’t even see Brigitte raise her arm once more, the glowing and hot red whip ready to rip her apart. Too late did she finally manage to raise her head and see the danger coming….but she was filled with so much discouragement that she could barely brin

With a scream, Erin fell to the carpeted floor, rolling until she slammed into the side of a wall. The broken broom stick she held fell clumsily from her hands, making her more vulnerable than ever. Panting, she slowly looked up to see one of the creatures who backhanded her away approaching her, victory gleaming in its eyes. For just a moment, the brown-haired girl was frozen, fear creeping in her heart as she imagined that this was the end for her. How did it come to this? Only a couple of days ago, she and Billie were just ordinary high school girls…..friends for as long as they could remember and dreaming about a future where anything was possible and they could be whatever they wanted to be.
They dreamed of inspirations for other young girls in sports, traveling to other countries in soccer playoffs and competitions, and finally, when the time was right, finding guys who would later become their husbands and help start a

Chapter 19
Grunting in pain, Shigidi stood up from the ground, dusting off the dirt from his shoulders and chest. He then turned and fixed savage, glowing green eyes on the group as they desperately fought to finish off the few remaining dream creatures. Anger surged through the ancient god’s heart, making his body start to shake with rage. Never had ANYONE, much less mortals, stood up against him like this. He had made an innumerable amount of mortals and gods cower before him, made them scream in fear until they had gone insane, never to come back from the dark abyss of madness.
But these young ones just continued and continued to defy him, to make a fool of him and disrupt his carefully thought-out plan he had waited many millennia to bring forth. How were they so powerful? How were they able to come this far against him when so many more stronger, hardened warriors fell before him in a crumpled heap within moments of stepping before

Chapter 18
If time passed in the Dream Sphere as it did in the physical realm, Billie and the others took no notice as they continued to fight with all they had against the mindless earth creatures. But it did seem like it went on forever, like it had been hours since they even took a second to take a breath. Although they did not feel the physical drain and exhaustion as they would have in the waking realm, their hearts still beat more than a thousand miles a minute as they fought on, determination and their desire to protect their family and home from Shigidi driving them.
Billie raised an arm, feeling Aja’s power and strength flowing through her as before, and willed a mound of earth to rise up quickly and fling back one of the creatures as it nearly descended on her. Next to her, Aja continued to fire her long and exquisitely designed arrows. At first Billie worried that she would run out of the weapons with how fast and how much sh

Hi there, I'm CaribbeanRose (formerly Rose74), and welcome to my little space here on Deviant Art! :D Let's see, a little bit about me...,well, I'm an aspiring writer hoping to get my stories published one day, as I hope to be an author that helps usher in Middle Grade and YA literature with more diverse characters that young readers and identify with and love. :thanks: I think it's time for popular series to feature characters that any child, whether from Africa, Brazil, China, or India, can see themselves and imagine they are going on exciting adventures with the characters, just like I did when I was younger. :thanks:

I was original born overseas, but I grew up in New York City...the Bronx to be specific, and I miss it every day I get up. I now live in Pennsylvania, which I completely detest. I do hope to end up back in New York one day. Other than that, I'm just your average person trying to make her dreams come true and practice my writing skills. I'm always looking for anyone willing to do requests and commissions for me, so please note me! ;) Thanks, and please enjoy your visit! :excited:
Interests

Hey everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful and restful Summer, as well as spending time with family and friends. Even though I'm born in the Fall, I love Summer, it's such a wonderful time of year to be free, to have fun, and travel. :aww: I hope all is well with you all. As for me, nothing really that much new. I recently came back from Canada with my mother, visiting family. Canada is an amazing country and I loved meeting the people there. Like America, it also has it places where there are mostly immigrants and it was fascinating meeting people from Somalia, South America, Korea, the Middle East, and even Pakistan. I was in Calgary, and it's an amazing place and filled with lots to do. ^^ But besides that, the big reason I was there was to support my aunt and see my grandmother. Sadly, my aunt is showing signs of Alzheimer's and it was heart-breaking to see for myself when it does to a loved one. It's like pieces of her memory and personality is slowly dying away and we had to help remind her of so much. I don't want to get too much into it, but please.....if you have a loved one in your family and you suspect they are showing signs of Alzheimer's..please don't shun them, please don't pass off their symptoms of just "forgetfulness" and that it'll  get better. My aunt went from a prize-winning professional dancer who has practically traveled the world to someone who sometimes can barely remember what she did earlier in the morning. :(  My family is giving her all the support she needs and that certainly helps.

My mother and I also visited my grandmother. She has a milder form of Alzheimer's. Fortunately she is still able to tell us things she's done in the past and the many amazing people she's met, such as famous celebrities that came to vacation in her country and even bowing to Queen Elizabeth II when she visited there back in the 50's. :D She's in a nursing home now and cannot stand on her own, but she still has her spunk and spirit and I laughed when she told me stories of the old days. ;)  We don't know how long she has, so my mom and I made sure we visited her often and let her know she's still loved in the family. My grandmother even met her new great-grandchildren. Although when my cousin took her daughter to meet our grandmother, the little one's blue eyes began to fill with tears and she bawled. I guess she's not really used to seeing older folks. ^^; But it was really fun and I learned lots about my family history, especially the different countries they were from. That really helped me in coming to terms with who I am and where my blood comes from. :thanks: But besides that, nothing really all that new....which is not surprising, considering the small town I'm in right now. God I can't wait to get out of here and back home to New York. :roll:

But there is something I've been considering for the past few months and I'm coming very close to making it final. The thing is......I'm seriously contemplating leaving Deviant Art and joining a website called The Society Of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (the site can be found here -www.scbwi.org/ ). Please don't get me wrong, I loved it when I first joined Deviant Art all those years ago, hoping to get some really insightful comments, suggestions, and feedback. For a while, I actually did. I met some really wonderful people here...friends I've been friends with for over 10 years. But over the years.....Deviant Art has changed. It went from truly talented people who honestly wanted to showcase their artworks or literature and get some genuine feedback and acknowledgement.....to a place where just anyone joined up so they can troll people, steal their artwork, and turn this into some stupid "popularity contest". Now everyone here just wants to join and draw well-known, established characters in creepy, sexually explicit situations and positions so they can get faves and those stupid "OH!!! SO CUUUUUUUTE!" comments from those bubble-headed members. Also rampant is when they turned characters who are straight or showed only barely hinted signs of being gays into full out gay in their art, putting them in a same-sex relationships and explicit yaoi or yuri situations that has nothing to do with the character, just because it's "cool" and "cute". It's getting ridiculous and downright pathetic. And no, I'm not writing this to denounce homosexuality and say I'm against it. That's NOT what this is about. And if you do comment me and tell me I'm some homophobe, I will make no hesitation to cuss your a$$ out. :chainsaw:

This is not about gay characters or people, this is about teen and young adult SJW girls (and yes, even guys) here who are rabid and overly-obsessed over idealized, fantasy, "cute" images and stories of homosexuality and gay characters. And just to clarify for those who might not know, SJW is the acronym for "social justice warriors"....people who are overly-liberal and only care about being "politically correct". They think they are the watchdogs in society and social media, basically harassing and bullying anyone they think is being a "homophobe", politically incorrect, or just not thinking as they do.They don't want to deal with the realities of the life of gay people, but just want to see the "fantasy" of it here, how they think it's "cute" and it's "cool" so they comment on it to make themselves look tolerant, progressive and the "heroes" for gay people. I've known gay people, I've sat down and had heart-to-heart discussions with gay people and befriended them, and even they get uncomfortable with how the rabid, fantasy-craving, over-obsessed yaoi and yuri fan girls act...on Deviant Art and on social media in general, even in comic and anime conventions. They shake their head and they often tell me the last word they would use to truly describe their lives as being gay is "cute" and "cool". The SJW's here are obsessed and all they care about is seeing and liking "cute" gay and lesbian fan art (sometimes of characters who are not even gay!) and over-doing just how for "gay rights" they are, just so they can be seen as the "hero". Even the "popular" artists here are falling prey to that and that's all most of them draw now. And Lord forbid if you say anything that even SEEMS like you're against gay art, because if you don't think like they do, then you're not a "true fan" and you're a "homophobe". It's sad to see how the "popular gay" art get so many likes and faves....examples being Steven Universe, Yuri On Ice and Tracer from Overwatch...yet there are so many talented artists out there that are just as talented and even MORE talented in some cases, get basically ignored because they have original characters that are not from shows and are straight. Has this what Deviant Art truly come to? Do people here just gravitate towards the "popular" artists and art who get the "SQUUUUUEEE! So CUTE! GAY IS LIFE!!! GAY IS PURE!!!" comments and just ignore other struggling writers and artists that truly need the feedback? Is this the result of the generation that is basically raised and conditioned on social media? If you express your faith and values here and it's not "cool" like the SJW's, are you the villain here? What happened to truly appreciating a person's art because it's really well-done, characters who are wonderfully fleshed out and appealing, not whether they are gay or not? I truly do not want to deal with that anymore here and it's a shame so many have left already because of the rabid yaoi and yuri fans and the SJW's. So yeah, I don't know when exactly I'm leaving, but it's coming. When everything's all settled, I'll be more than happy to post the link to my information on that site, and who knows, maybe I'll even get a book deal! :excited: :D I'll still check around once in a while and see how the friends I've made are doing. But yeah....it's time for me to move on and go somewhere that's really substantial.

Well, sorry for the rambling, but I just had to get this off my chest. I do know that there are some who feel the same way, I'm just putting out what they were thinking. If anyone has a problem with what I said, don't be a coward and troll me....note me or give me a real comment and we can talk. That would be the mature, respectful thing to do.

Anyway, again, hope you all are doing well, and take care until I come back again with some exciting news. :wave:
