Poetry Migration + Garden of Lies

riengoltb

I’m currently in the middle of migrating all my poetry and lyrics to the Creative Vault section. It’s going to make my life a whole lot easier to keep them in one place where I can access them as well as my blog entries. It’s going to take a while, since I have a huge library of lyrics and poetry. It has also been a while since I last written anything that I could claim to be ‘poetry’. Muse, where art thou? The lack of thy presence saddens me, for I can’t craft without thee. Lol.

Resurrecting my old original story + RPG project is even harder. RPG Maker is behaving wonderfully, so I probably could start with the map soon. Let’s see how patient I can be this time around. I remember the time when my RPG project using RPG Maker was a huge success, complete with my own music, characters, backgrounds and of course, events and special effects. The ‘me’ who was a lot younger was more creative than the ‘me’ now. Whatever did I do to myself, I wonder?

As a fresh start, I’ll be changing the title to Garden of Lies. Despite it being such a lame ass unoriginal title, it fits the storyline. Heck, I even pissed myself off with my own plot. It’s not everyday you feel like strangling your own characters and the f-ed up world they live in.

The best part about this original story is the law – the judicial system in the Garden of Lies. I get to design the tradition, the constitution, decrees – just about everything. Fantasy is a dangerous thing, but it helps with creativity, no?

[Tales of Hearts] – Sandworm and Happiness Spirune

I totally LOLed after finding the Spirune in the violent Sandworm’s body. Kohak was like “No way! My Spirune –” And here I thought Spirune affects human only. This Spirune is the green one, and Kohak starts sobbing once Shing returned it to her.

Beryl: Uh, uh… Is it ‘Sadness’? But we’ve already retrieved her ‘Sadness’ Spirune, haven’t we?

That’s what I thought at first too. It’s actually the Spirune of ‘Happiness’. Kohak was crying because she was glad everybody was alive, and that they could see each other again.

Shing: So that’s how it is. Kohak’s feeling of ‘happiness’ is finally back…
Hisui: (punch) Idiot! Don’t you start crying now!
Shing: (nervous laugh) Well, aren’t you teary eyed too, Hisui?

After the cutscene, they walked only a little bit to the north to reach another spot.

Beryl: Oooooohhh!!! OASIS! I’ve been wanting to see you!

The playful banter is back. Beryl teased Hisui about crying like a kid, and Hisui pointed out how Beryl cried just as much. I love how robotic, emotionless Kunzite is scared of Innes :3

p.s/ This whole talk of Lithia being an existence that exists only in Kohak’s Spiria is reminding me greatly of Luke, Asch and Lorelei.

[Tales of Hearts] – Chasing Byrocks and Calcedney

Current Location: Shehera Desert
Destination: Bransel
Next Spirune: Dream (Yellow)

I’ve been wasting time walking in circles at the sewer under the castle, right after Marin lost consciousness and Byrocks knocked Calcedney unconscious to escape the royal guards. Geez, Marin, wake the hell up already. It’s interesting though, that Calcedney could be affected by Kohak’s ‘Rage’ and ‘Dream’ Spirune at once. His heart is either that weak, or it’s owner is too smug. Doesn’t surprise me why Hiroshi Kamiya as his seiyuu rocks. He’s just like Gundam 00’s Tieria, too confident. When things come crashing down, they break.

It’s easy to get past the sewer. Use the Sorcerer Ring on the floating water clog thingie. Once we’ve escaped the sewer, Shing explained to Kohak why he was hesitant in returning her Spirune of Rage/Anger (whatever. What’s the proper English for Ikari?). Shing still blamed himself for the Despir Disease and Kohak’s runaway Spirunes. Kunzite, hearing this, attacked Shing on the spot. Urgh, Soma Knight sounds so lame, Kunzite. It was an easy battle, of course. Though I’ve levelled everyone up to level 38, villain!Kunzite was at level 24 (wow, look at the time I wasted levelling up!).

Turned out the runaway Spirunes thingie wasn’t Shing’s fault. It was Kohak and Lithia’s all along. Hisui is getting tired of hearing about Lithia, because no one but Kohak had ever seen her. Shing saw her once in Kohak’s Spirmaze, so he knew that she exists.

Kunzite listened to reason, and now he’s back in the party. Time to chase after Calcedney and Byrocks to retrieve Kohak’s Spirune of Dream. Byrocks has been acting too gay, what’s with his ‘Cal-sama! Your sadness is my sadness! I shall give my life to blablablabla…’. Dramatic subordinate is dramatic.

Byrocks ran all the way north to Bransel, and we’ll have to go through Shehera Desert. Beryl is currently convinced we have 99% chance of dying in action. Kunzite just makes it worse. According to his calculation, the chance would be 99.9%. What are you now, Tenipuri’s Inui??

Okay, I’ll go through the desert now. New monsters, get into my monster inventory! I guess I’ll go waste some more time levelling up to level 50 (if have the patience) or 45 (if I’m too impatient).
