The Mage's Student
Mont Blanc was the highest point of the mountain range called the Alps. It was one of the longest mountain ranges in all of Europe, stretching from France to Switzerland, from Germany to Italy, and from Monaco to Slovenia. Hannibal had once crossed through them to begin his fifteen year long war with Rome, Napoleon Bonaparte had made a similar march on his own warpath, and had been the subject of awe and wonder of artists, poets, and tourists for centuries...
Kate Nicely, a young Canadian lady only about halfway through her teens with short reddish-brown hair and a very freckled face, wasn't one of them. In fact, she found them to be nothing short of an inconvenience as she carried an armful of groceries up the path her mentor had given to her. One of the paper bags split open, sending the cans bouncing off the stone and ice that she had been carefully navigating for the last hour or so. She yelled as she flicked her finger. Mists flew out to catch them moments before they could f

Fate/Terre Feerique pt. 20
"I am the forgotten...the cast aside...the murdered. Not one sings my praises. My name all but forgotten. My glory over-taken by other shining legends. Her glory is greater than mine. His failures supersede my victories. His blade took my life. Thus, I am all but left as the off-scourings of the legendary knights! Give rise, hatred! If no glory is given to a hero, then it shall be taken as a beast!"
Saber sprung up, looking around. He hadn't left the room Atsuko had been taken to when Avenger had abducted her. And now...now...
His eyes traveled to see her on the bedding that she had laid on when she had bitten the Poisoned Apple. This time, though, she slept comfortably next to him, arm around his, and she had slept by putting her chin on the top of his head. The two were also...noticeably bare under the covers, giving testament to what had happened the night before.
Saber smiled as he pulled himself from her grasp. With a flourish of mana, his armor reappeared aroun

Fictorian Knight pt. 3
"Send me to the River, did the Balances curse me? Why else have I been given such disrespectful, reckless, blasphemous knights?" Ultimecia shouted.
She stood with the five who remained and her three cohorts. Before them, knelt the four knights, wincing at each shout. Xem was used to being chewed out like this after years of hanging out with Teal. Lunatic dealt with this at least once a week. Fortune never had to deal with this, full-stop. Teal, however, had to bring this on more than a succeeding grandmaster should have.
"Grandmaster, I would like to-" Fortune said.
"Silence before the Grandmaster." Ultimecia snapped. Fortune immediately stiffened, keeping her mouth shut, "As the Grandmaster, it is my job to keep the people of Fictron safe and the best way I can do that is if the human world doesn't know we're here. Why do you think this can be helped by running in there and stealing from them whenever I turn around twice? Haven't I taught you anything?!"
"Grandmaster, it's my fault."

Fictorian Knight pt. 2
The shack floated in the air, lazily drifting on the clouds, a mile or two above the mountain, where the Řeční světla clearly decorated the skies with pink lights. It was small, circular, and had a thatched roof. It was inaccessible to most Fictorians. Only those who could fly or warp there and only a few could do that.
Or those with just enough stubbornness.
The man had followed it in secret for years. He knew what dwelled within it. The man in question had unruly, black hair, a pair of dark glasses, dark clothes, and arms that gleamed like steel and sharpened blades for fingers.
He watched the shack float just within eyesight. He pointed his hands down as an eerie green glow burned across them. He propelled himself into the air. He had collected life energy for years to prepare for this. Many would go their whole lives without even glimpsing it. But his time spent traveling the world, studying weather patterns and legends. He had been following it, that small shac

Fictorian Knight pt. 1
It was a calm and quiet night in the old woods of Japan. A figure ran across the trees, clad in a dark cloak. It stopped for a second, holding up a map.
"Is this the right one?" it asked, voice collected and feminine. She pulled out a scroll and looked it over, reading, "Here, the Fictorian strides."
She had thought it was just a description of old maps, like the phrase "Here there be dragons" to describe places that hadn't been explored. But what was a 'Fictorian'? That was the question that had begun her journey. No one in the village had answers. Not even the wisest sages could. So, she went off on her own to figure out what.
Right next to the cryptic phrase was a tree with a star-shape right below it. She looked down the tree she had landed on. There it was, covered in moss, dirt, and the other markings of the forest, but unmistakable. She wondered why it had been put out here of all places, but had other, important matters. Did these have the answers?
She jumped down, landing grac

At Jess' Place pt. 6
"What does that mean?" Nicholas asked, recovered enough from his shock, though he still looked at the mug in his hand, "What does that even mean, 'Marked'?"
"One moment, sir." Robert said, looking around Nicholas' neck. He saw a bear put onto it, like it was branded onto it with a hot iron, "I take it ya found a gatherin' o' nine people, folks that the good Mr. Shakespeare called the Nine Worthies?"
"I...I did, yes." Nicholas said, "They said it was a narrow call, four-to-five, but enough to get me through."
"From what I've seen o' you, that sounds about right." Ned muttered.
"To be Marked means you were set apart. Seen as someone unique among humanity." Jess explained, "Whether by your accomplishments or by works, you have been seen as people worthy of being taken from the masses. To set you apart, you have been given your marks and placed here by the men considered the paragons of chivalry for the upcoming battles."
"Battles?" Hildegard asked.

The six people in the eatery just stared at this newcomer. The atmosphere could be described as "perplexed". After just barging in and shouting his desire to bathe, what else could their reactions be?
"That's...nice, I suppose." Robert said.
"I applaud your desire for proper hygiene." Shakespeare commented.
"Of course, I arrive here among the rabble." The newcomer muttered, darkly, as he sat down.
"He seems a charmin' fella." Robert said.
"I don't like his face. Too much like many o' the cops I dealt with." Ned stated.
"Ahem..." Mary said, tapping Robert on the shoulder, "I wish to apologize for earlier behavior. I'm British to my core and that means I am to hold myself to certain standards of conduct. While you only have one first impression, I would like to offer my apologies, good sir."
"Miss Seacole, as far as I'm concerned, it's already forgotten." Robert said, "And I was part o' the Senate in a time just after slavery. Believe me, I've had worse."

About King Arthur Retelling
As you may realize by the title of this journal, I am starting to feel conflicted concerning my future retelling of the Arthurian Cycle. 
One of the issues I have concerning this retelling is the setting and whether I should call Britain as Britain, Britton or England, the latter of which would make it seem as though Arthur would be High King of the Anglo-Saxons, which would make the Danes or Vikings the invaders who had to be driven out. Damn you, Danelaw. 
Or maybe I could intertwine both Romano-Celtic-British culture with the Anglo-Saxons so as to make England a somewhat  united land in spite of the many different Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms like West Seaxe (Wessex, and the Kingdom that would unite the country until those nosy Normans stormed in), Suth Seaxe (Sussex), East Seaxe (Essex), Northymbre (Northumbria), Mierce (Mercia), the three Anglia lands and the Welsh Kingdoms. 
Another issue I have is the matter of well blending Christian elements with some of the more m

Kindness vs. Softness: A Confession
I'll be honest. I've never really been on super honest on the Internet or to people at large. I feel as if I know this, but not a lot of people do. So in order for me to discuss this, I feel that I need to discuss this image and for some reason, how important it is to me as a person right now. 
 
I grew up a Christian and I still wear that badge proudly even to this day. I still pray everyday, I've recently been starting to read the Bible more often now, I've went to church at least once a week and moreover, I have my faith in God. And I believe it is because of this background where I was brought up in that I steadily became more kind-hearted, more of a person who would bend over backwards to listen to someone's thoughts, their feelings, someone who...unfortunately would much rather put others before his own self care. 
I want to please people and it isn't due to any evil intent or any sense of malice, but because I want to help people. I want to be kind to them. I want

Teen Titans Go goes too far...
Okay, you seen those trailers or promos for the Teen Titans Go movie? WELL…they decided to make a joke similar to how it was in this comic:
But yeah…wanna know who’s dress the writers for Teen Titans go they decided to let Plastic “Eel” O’Brian be? the woman who had the dress?
Supergirl. You know…the TEENAGE COUSIN of SUPERMAN? and a GROWN ASS MAN IS PLAYING THE ROLE OF HER DRESS.
…Cartoon Network, do you not realize the IMPLICATIONS!?
Seriously, that is a joke where I draw a line!

Starting a voice cast for Fate/Terre Feerique. Mostly doing a Funimation voice acting ring for a bit of consistency.

Atsuko DeForest: Ashly Burch (Sasha from Attack on Titan)
Saber/Gareth: Justin Briner (Deku on My Hero Academia)
Rider/Momotaro: Josh Grelle (Sadou on The Devil is a Part-Timer)
Archer/Pecos Bill: Matt Mercer (McCree on Overwatch)
Assassin/Puss in Boots: Leah Clark (Blair on Soul Eater)
Berserker/Beast: Crispin Freeman (Winston on Overwatch)

Bryce Rider: Sean Schemmel (Goku on Dragon Ball Z)
Ludwig/Ruler: Vic Mignogna (Tamaki on Ouran)

Only major characters I'm missing at the moment are Theo, Caster/Cinderella, and Saver/Fairy Godmother.
After the most recent commission from :iconiesnoth:, I figured it was time to make some more design updates. As such, the two big bads of Volume I: The Evil Queen and the Boogeyman.

Grimmwoods Gwendolyn White reference by Tohokari-Steel
Gwendolyn White:
Her biggest update is her dress, making its design better, trying to emulate the design from iesnoth's picture. Surprisingly, I found this a lot of fun to do. Her design, I could sum up as "past her prime, but you could believe she was once the fairest of them all". I'm also proud of the look of her mirror and crown, making them a bit more ornate.

Grimmwoods Dusk the Boogeyman reference by Tohokari-Steel
Dusk the Boogeyman:
Changes were minimal, but it's often the little things that make all the difference. He's wearing shoes for one. And his undershirt and tie had their colors swapped; it used to be a white shirt with a black tie, now it's a black shirt with a white tie. Honestly, that works better for this design. His hands looking like claws were also changed into long, spindly fingers and his tendril hair being a bit more clear in its look. Kept the main inspirations, though: Nosferatu, Lord Voldemort, Slender Man, and Asura from Soul Eater.
Celebration dinner was an experiment that I've been considering for a while now:
Macaroni and cheese with Flamin' Hot Cheetos pounded to a dust and sprinkled over it. Adds spice and a pleasant crunch.
Just as I was leaving, my manager stopped me. The reason? I got a fifty cent raise. Seems small, but I'm paid by the hour and work four-to-five hour shifts for about twenty hours a week, so that means more collective moolah.

And the reason for it? He was impressed by my improvement. I've gotten faster, better at my job, and I was alone all day yesterday and still handled it well.

Major feather in my cap, so I'm gonna go celebrate! ...Meaning I'll probably get something nice to eat, maybe a new video to watch, and possibly commission an artist. To me, that's a wild night. You can take the boy out of the Midwest...

DON'T CARE, I'm having fun.
Challenge: describe a book in the vaguest or worst possible way.

Example:
-"After fifteen years, four children decide to come out of the closet."
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
-"Man upsets PETA because he doesn't have a leg to stand on."
Moby Dick
-"Scientist decides to make a man for himself."
Frankenstein

I may be assuming too much, but...for The Fictorian Knight...since you added elements from Prince of Egypt...one of the most pivotal moments in that movie was when Moses had that terrible nightmare...yeah you know...and...

A bit of tweaking to make the context work and it should fit very well for the kind of character he's become.
