Things Forgotten
Chapter 13: The Slave Crown
Kefka had been of a most unusual disposition lately.  He had been for several weeks now, even more so than was typical for him, and Terra had caught him eyeing her with what she was quite certain was suspicion on more than one occasion, even though she hadn’t the slightest idea what it was he thought she had done.  There were plenty of times he would destroy things when he was throwing a fit, including dismembering or incinerating his dolls, only to later blame her for the damage, and she could never be certain if he had really forgotten what he had done and truly believed she was at fault or if he was just doing it to be mean, and she had been around his new self for long enough now to know that either theory had an equal chance of being correct.
And then, without warning, his mood would switch to one that was a bit easier to deal with, even if it still made her feel just as awkward, and he would pet her hair a

Chapter 12: A Bad Person
Looking Kefka in the eye wasn’t as easy as it used to be.  Everywhere Terra went, it seemed, she’d hear awful rumors about the things people said he had done, things that made her sick to think about, and it made her really wonder about this Empire she was a part of when someone could do these things, as part of their job, no less, and it was okay somehow.  She knew very well what the military was, but such things should never be okay.
It was fortunate, then, that she already had practice ignoring things she didn’t want to think about, at least for a time, and it helped that Kefka had begun reading to her again.  Even though he had acquired quite the taste for tragic stories where everyone died in the end, and despite not always reading the chapters in order, she couldn’t help but laugh at how animated he had become and the way he would use different voices and dramatic hand gestures, and she

Chapter 11: Cocoa
Today was Kefka’s 33rd birthday.  Terra just wished that he knew that.  She had yet to tell him, but she had gone down to the palace kitchens for some hot cocoa for the two of them, something he always enjoyed, no matter what the occasion, and which she hoped would make him a bit easier to get along with, considering his mood had turned quite sour as of late, even more so than usual, ever since the arrival of a rather bitter cold snap several days ago.  She didn’t know if he simply hadn’t minded the cold so much before or if he was just far more vocal about it now.
When she arrived home, she found him sitting on the floor in front of the fireplace, huddled up with his cape and other many layers of clothing wrapped about him.  She really had no idea how he even could be cold under all that clothes (or why he didn’t take off some of it when summer arrived and his complaints turned t

Chapter 10: Nightmares
Terra was woken up sometime around midnight by the sound of yelling in the other room.  The two of them had always gotten plenty of nightmares, and that was one of the few similarities they still had in common.  She once believed, back when she was still little, that adults didn’t get nightmares, until she found that Kefka got them about as often as she did, though he would never tell her what his were about, and she never pushed him.  It really was just nice, not that she wanted him to get bad dreams, to have someone she could share her nightmares with that would truly understand.
It came as no surprise to her, however, that his nightmares had been getting worse and worse these past few years, and lately, she didn’t know if he ever went more than a night or two without crying out in his sleep.  And some nights, when he was particularly bad, she couldn’t stop herself from sneaking into hi

Chapter 9: No Better Than a Doll
If Terra had been asked, years ago, what she thought her life would be like now, her wildest guess wouldn’t have come anywhere close to the reality.
For the longest time, she was aware that Kefka was slipping away, like water between her fingertips, with no hope of ever getting back what was lost, but at least she could pretend for a while that things were still not so very different from what they once were whenever he wasn’t talking to himself or staring vacantly out a window.  She couldn’t pretend anymore, however, when she came home one day to find his face covered in red and white makeup and his features distorted by a painted-on smile.  She hadn’t asked why he had wanted her to bring back makeup during one of her outings because she didn’t want to know.  And it was due to the shock at his changed face that she failed at first to take notice of what he had in his hand.

Chapter 8: Kindled Flames
It had taken six soldiers to subdue him, Terra had heard, and that was not including several more that had to be rushed to the infirmary for third degree burns.  Such news really should’ve been kept private, as people didn’t need to know that the Empire’s greatest general had had what some called a nervous breakdown, while others went so far as to label it a full-blown psychotic episode, but Terra eventually caught word of whatever it was that had happened when she left home that night after he had failed to return from a dinner celebrating a Celes Chere’s promotion to admiral.
While she had come to expect the worst, she never would have expected something like this, and yet, over the last several years, Kefka had done many things she never would have believed he’d do, so perhaps she shouldn’t have been so shocked when the patrolling soldiers whose conversations she had overheard had discu

Chapter 7: Sickness
Terra had hardly left Kefka’s bedside in a good two weeks now, and he showed no signs of getting any better.  He had developed an intense fever that had come on quite without warning, along with a weakness in his body that had confined him to his room, and she had to help him into bed after he had collapsed to the floor, and ever since, Terra had done little else but dab at his forehead with a cold towel or spoon feed him plain broth, when he could keep it down, that is, while he stared off at nothing with glassy eyes and intermittently mumbled to himself and blamed whoever it was he thought resided in his head for his current affliction.
She would stay up with him late into the night, sitting on his bed and stroking his hair and watching his chest rise and fall as he slept just to make sure he was still alive, and she would often wake up hours later to find she had fallen asleep right in that very spot, and whenever his hea

Chapter 6: Forget
It was now late evening, and Kefka hadn’t once acknowledged that it was her birthday.  Even though his condition, or whatever Terra could think to call it, had only gotten worse, she simply couldn’t imagine him forgetting such an important thing as that.  He had left that morning with no more than a nod in her direction as she watched him from a sofa that was starting to get a little cramped, but it was still early, and sometimes mornings didn’t quite agree with him.
She got up and brushed her teeth and put on one of the newest dresses he had made for her, a most delicate one with lace and a big bow tied in the back that she remembered he had looked rather silly making, as it wasn’t often one saw a man devoting so much serious attention to something so frilly, and she plopped down in his armchair and got to reading as she awaited his eventual return.
Nevertheless, while Kefka usually tried to return home

Chapter 5: Ash
Terra hadn’t heard a sound out of Kefka all day.  Years ago, she wouldn’t have thought anything, but he hadn’t spoken one word to her, or to himself, since yesterday, nor had he budged from his desk for the last many hours, and it wasn’t because he was busy.  She certainly hadn’t seen any sign of such a thing, and she had been watching.  She always watched him anymore.  He never seemed to notice, though.
She slipped out of his armchair and inched closer to him, but even when she stopped beside his desk, she kept her distance.  She remembered quite clearly what had happened the last time he was like this.  It wasn’t his fault, but that didn’t make her forget.
She tucked her hands behind her back, remaining quiet longer still, with some glimmer of a thought that he might be the one to speak first, but he didn’t.  “Kefka,” she said, and his head jerk

Chapter 4: First Tears
Terra never again went to play with the other children.  In fact, she loved it most when she was home with Kefka, and though it was hard when he was gone, it only made it that much better when he returned and she could wrap her arms around him, and she found that the most effective method of all to get him to smile was to smile herself.  She had since lost track of the number of times she had seen him smile.
They spent all of his spare time together, mostly at home, but sometimes she could convince him to take her for walks in the palace or even outside, and she would hold his hand and ask a thousand questions about what she saw, and sometimes she’d even bring her chocobo doll along.  It never looked the same after what had happened to it, but Kefka had tried to mend it as best he could, and the wing stayed on just fine now.  And even though he was unable to find yellow thread that matched exactly, she like

Chapter 3: Brother
Terra found out quite quickly that the outside world was not a very nice place, and she was starting to understand why Kefka never left home anymore than he had to, except for things like work or to retrieve hot cocoa for the two of them from the palace kitchens.  It was not until a time when Kefka was too busy, always hunched over his desk with a quill pen she almost thought hadn’t left his hand in days, too busy for their nightly reading even, that Terra decided she would muster up the courage to leave their little home and see what she could find about the palace.  Kefka had warned her to be careful and to not wander outside and to absolutely, under no circumstances, talk to or go anywhere with people she didn’t know, and she promised she would remember all these things.
After a good bit of wandering and very nearly getting lost a few times, she came upon a group of children playing in one of the palace courtyar

Chapter 2: New Home
To Terra, Kefka’s quarters in the palace was the nicest place she had ever seen.  It was only two rooms, but they were two large rooms, with a fireplace and rugs covering wooden floors and curtains hanging down over tall windows (Terra was just thrilled there were windows at all, as the lab didn’t have any, and thus far, she had only heard about the world outside and looked at pictures of it, but never before had she really seen it with her own, two eyes).  Kefka apologized that all he had to be used as a bed for her right now was a small sofa, but when she pressed her hands against the cushions, it turned out to be far softer than her cot back at the lab, even if it was a little small, but it was fine at the height she was now.  The other room was his bedroom, which he told her to never go in while he was away, and though she wasn’t sure why, she nodded, her arms still wrapped around her chocobo

Chapter 1: The Lab
Terra began her life, or at least, what she could remember of it, somewhere cold.  It was cold in many ways, but the temperature she could learn to live with.  There were needles and long, flexible tubes filled with various liquids, and they said they were only doing these things because she was special, but if that was true, why did they have to do things to her that hurt and made her feel sick?
She spent the early years of her life this way, either undergoing the tests she didn’t know the purpose of or kept in a cell with little else but a cot and a stuffed chocobo doll for company.  They said it was for her own safety, so she couldn’t leave the lab and get lost, but she thought it might also be because things would sometimes catch on fire when she was around.  They said she was the one doing it, because she was capable of magic, but how could she be doing something when she didn’t even mean to?

Howdy!  Now that I've gotten a few requests, I thought this would be a good time to make a journal entry to clear up any questions people might have.  I am indeed open to requests, though the number of requests I'll take at a time differs depending on what other projects I have.

In General: I will do requests for fan art (NO literature) of characters and franchises of which I am familiar.  This includes original/fan characters that are part of said franchises.  The reasoning behind this is because it allows me to draw characters whose personalities I already know.  Obviously, original/fan characters are an exception, but if they're part of one of the franchises listed below, I will draw them as long as I'm provided with proper references as to their appearance and personality.

Franchises I Will Draw:
  • Donkey Kong Country 
  • Five Nights a Freddy's
  • Jak and Daxter
  • Kirby
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Rayman
  • Sly Cooper
  • Undertale

The above list will expand as I become more familiar with a greater variety of characters and more comfortable with drawing in general.

Keep in Mind:
  • I will decline any request for artwork that I feel uncomfortable with.
  • I will not draw anything explicit.  This includes violence and nudity.

Right now, all 3 slots are full! Wow, that was fast!

1: :iconcyberfox: - Ottsel Jak, Daxter, and Tess from Jak and Daxter 
2: :iconclaire-petal-splash: - Ly from Rayman
3: :iconthomas2342342: - Ribbon and Adeleine from Kirby 64

If you would like to make a request, but there are no available slots, please keep an eye on this journal and comment below about the details of your request once an opening becomes available.

Also, one request per person!  'Kay, bye!
