Also, happy Easter, everyone!
I'll start uploading them here but they are on fanfiction.net currently!
Expect new art soon maybe!?
(If you've seen Re:Zero, I'm sure this sounds familiar)
- Listening to: Talking Heads- "Once in a Lifetime"
- Watching: The Seahawks lose their last bit of hope :(
- Listening to: "No One's Gonna Love You" -Band of Horses
- Playing: Doki Doki Literature Club!
Oh, how I don't want to do this
Second, I wish there was a way to encode music with my fic. I want this to play whenever the Phantom appears: [link]
Just imagine, the part at 1:41 that kicks in playing when the Phantom looks out over the Great Canyon Dam in volume 1, cloak blowing in the breeze as a low-angle shot makes him look terrifying. Face-Melting if I say so myself
Oh yeah, new chapter soon :^)
This is like, the most dedicated I've ever been to anything ever
Greyson: Jason Liebrecht. I’ve always imagined Greyson’s voice as “kind of monotone but not completely devoid of life.” The black-haired guy here is a close match to how Greyson sounds. And, apart from the anime character’s long middle bang, is a pretty close match to how Greyson looks.
Rusty: Max Mittleman. I’ve been playing Persona, and I imagine Rusty’s voice as a slightly-less angry Ryuji now.
Azure: Caitlyn Glass. Watching Fullmetal Alchemist, I definitely saw parallels between Winry and Azure, and the voice has stuck since.
Ember: Brina Palencia. I don’t know how to describe how perfect her Touka voice is for Ember. (Even though the rest of the Tokyo Ghoul dub is kiiiinda bad)
This site can be a bit sketchy at times, but around minute 5 and 10:30 are good examples of the voice. Touka is the purple-haired one.
Pierce: Matthew Mercer. He can voice any character ever, but his Levi voice is perfect for Pierce. Definitely not because Pierce was just Levi in the RWBY universe shhhhhhhh
Take this as a bonus (AoT spoilers!) www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUhV7r…
Raven: Brianna Knickerbocker
100% certified cinnamon roll protect
Ezelia: Ashly Burch.
I, uh... I don’t know what’s going on in this clip. But it sounds like stuff she would say, and the strange voices she would say it in. youtu.be/6XKXWrZ6Gfg?t=3m34s
Kita: Ideally, Kita would be voiced by an actual Japanese person with an accent. I don’t know any names though, and Laura Bailey is a really good voice actor so I choose her. She’ll sound like this, www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVKK8H… but of course with her usual accent.
Bonus: Same voice actor, similar to things Ember would say
Alexandra: Trina Nishimura. Our newest edition to the cast will sound like the redhead here. www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vTaTW… If you noticed I left out Dustyn before, it’s because his voice actor is in this video too. Tyson Rinehart, the voice of the larger gentleman in the clip above fits.
Vladimir: Robbie Daymond. His “Shadow Assassin Kayn” voice is absolutely perfect for Vladimir, minus the echo.
So, I’ve decided to upload the next volumes of Twilight Crusade here as well. But, there are some notable differences between the original drafts of GRAE and what was posted here: www.fanfiction.net/s/11977198/… I feel I should mention.
Volume 2 of GRAE had several plot points changed and adjusted.
Greyson lost his battle with Vladimir, and went to the dance with Ember instead to keep an eye on Vladimir and Azure.
General fixes that lessened out-of-character moments and plot holes, as well as ones that made the plot more progressive and coherent.
The Shrouded Fox are from North of Mistral, in the Yamakori mountains.
Kita’s sword was renamed Kenakuma.
Darien’s name was changed to Dunder Leone, in reference to the useless weed that no one likes
The strange “math class” scene in late volume 1 was taken out, and replaced with an episode where Greyson takes Azure to a place called “Lancer’s Ridge” and asks her to the dance there.
And of course, it's better written.
Okay, so I recently discovered what Babymetal was. I didn’t even really listen to their music, but I noticed something. How I imagined Kita to look is exactly what the lead singer, Suzuka Nakamoto, looks like.
Take this excerpt from the updated GRAE, where I explain Kita's appearance.
“Kita had removed the mask that covered her face the night before, to reveal a young, somewhat doll-like countenance. While her eyes were cold and businesslike, both nose and mouth were dainty and delicate. Her lips eternally fixed into a slight, rosy-pink pout. Her bangs cut straight across her eyebrow ridge, a dark spike of hair falling down past her chin to each side, framing her face.”
Then, refer to this picture of Ms. Nakamoto: iv1.lisimg.com/image/8700424/6…
See? There’s just something there that makes me think of Kita...
To celebrate I'm going to a dorm thingy, but before that I'm re-watching scenes of Re:Zero and listening to its music while drafting Twilight Crusade Book Two!
Oops, did I just spoil how much people are going to suffer? :^)
