Fusiliers Forever: Chapter 10
Galatean City
Galatea, Lyran Commonwealth
12 May 3038

The Fighting Fusiliers were a brand-new mercenary company and a small one at that, but traditions have to start somewhere. One thing that seemed to be emerging as a Fusilier tradition was taking on people who were misfits in one way or another.
     Take their new recruit, Laura Bauer. She was twenty-six standard years old and tall and beautiful, with blue eyes and long blonde hair. But her model-quality looks weren't what made her a misfit. It was her record.
     Hailing from the Lyran Commonwealth world of Mississauga, Laura came from a middle-class family with a history of military service. Both her parents had been in the LCAF as enlisted personnel. They had saved up and sent their daughter first to the Port St. William Military School, and then on to the highly respected Coventry Academy. Laura had thrived and worked very hard. She'd done so well in fact that s

I just came by because I randomly clicked on an image in my "Random From Favorites"
I don't know how I missed this, how I didn't realise it had been so long since I'd seen something from you in my inbox. I'm always running behind on catching up.
I... I have a "karanua" folder in my Favourites and I didn't quite notice that I haven't had anything to add to it in years.
This keeps happening.

I hope that wherever your soul is, it's having a good time.
Rest In Peace.

god I'm terrible at these

Good bye, my dear friend. 
I miss our long conversations.

Happy birthday!!! :iconrainbowbummiecakeplz:

Based on the comments here, I think he died on dA's 12th birthday, or earlier than that.

May he rest in peace, even though I just knew about this today. :saddummy: :pray:

RIP mate, will miss our many conversation and arguments!

I can't believe it.  I'd been away so long, I didn't even know.  You'd always been a great individual off of whom to bounce ideas.  I'm hardly expressing any original sentiments, but I mean it when I concur that you'll be missed.

you will be missed.
Bendinggrass Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013
God bless you, sir.
I never knew of you until this very moment.
Your work is beautiful. I pray you will enjoy beauty that makes pale our greatest dreams.
Thank you so much for bringing so much beauty into this world.

I've passed by this page and this gallery many times in the past few weeks, but you know how life is. A quick browse through the wonderful art, fave and move on.

Never did I realise until now that we had lost such a talented individual, more shame on me.

I hope this gallery and its contents act as a legacy to a brave man with talent I can only hope to emulate.

Clear skies, Dave.

Just signed up to say goodbye.

We use to hang out when we were young; but lost touch in the early 90s.

I can't begin to comprehend what you went through in the last few years. Puts any woes I may think I have in perspective...

You've left a legacy on this site - and our works that survive us make us immortal.

May you float freely through space, a place you enjoyed so much when creating your wonderful art. My thoughts and prayers are with you :pray:

Happy Birthday!!! :iconcakepinkplz:

CJ. If you're able to read this, I want you to know that you have my most sincerest condolences. No words can paint a greater picture on how great David was as a individual, a father, and a husband. I know losing Danny was hard on you. They were both a big part in your life as much as you were in theirs. But if that other side exists, at least now his father is there by his side.

Losing a loved one is difficult. Losing another is unheard of. But it's important that you stay strong. Never give up on the road ahead of you.

Best of wishes to you.
Renerade Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
David. For the short amount of time that I've known you, you have been a kind and generous individual. Extremely blunt and straight-forward, but honest. You've certainly inspired me to pursue my dreams with more motivation than I use to.

I really wish I could've met you and Danny in person. Maybe one day I'll see you on the other side if such a place exists. May you be at peace with your son and father.

Rest easy, Dave.

............I just found out.
May you Rest in Peace.

Oh no.  I am always saddened when DEATH is greater than the artist.  When an artist dies, the whole world is diminished.  Requiescat In Pace.

I haven't been able to keep up with dA this fall as well as I would like to, and I just came by to see how David aka =karanua was doing. How did you find out he passed away? Please let me know. Thank you :sadangel:
Marian87 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just like you. Reading the profile comments here.

I scanned through all the comments and came up with this journal, so you may want to link to it :sadangel:
