    Yeah that plan crashed and burned. I guess you could say I'm taking a short break, maybe a couple more days to think it over. Aside from my usual running around, I have a good plan for the story but I haven't exactly solidified it yet. It may be part a sonfic/fanfic at the occasional moment, but I'm still unsure about it. Might sound good as an idea, but if it's executed wrong it could bring the all the stories, as well as themes, crashing and burning to the ground.
    Although I have been working on Frequency a fair bit. Doing both makes it fairly difficult, but it'll do me good later on once Frequency is finished off. I'll actually have a solid story as a whole lol.

    Thought about it a little bit and I think I have a better idea of what I wanna do with Sanctuary. Took a lot of thinking over. Made a not so triumphant return to LT itself, and quite a bit has changed which threw my decisions of what to do with the story off. But in the end, I'll stick with some of the original concepts and build from there, without making major changes.
    Nevertheless, I remember what I had originally intended to do. My plan was to write the first chapter of Sanctuary to at least give you an idea of what's going on, then finish off the good copy of Frequency so everything was completely solid. There are gonna be some major changes, but it'll be the same story in the end. Making a rough guess, Frequency should be done before the end of October, if not less. The later chapters are pretty solid so not much needs to be changed there; since i wrote them after being away for so long. So aside from that, I'm still trying to finish Frequency so you can read chapters 1-4 on fanfiction.net, if you want a link I'll post one. That's what I'll be working on in the meantime so yeah :3.
    Almost forgot. I'll be finishing chapter 1 for Sanctuary soon. Almost forgot to do that.

    Truth be told, I have no idea when I'm gonna finish that chapter lol. Like I said before, I made a not-so-triumphant return to LT. OGP decided to do something extreme and they're hosting this huge event. If you win, you get a Brownie and all sorts of other goodies, and if there's anything I love in LT, it's Brownie. But the catch is that I have to get a lvl 1 acc(made during the event period) to 120 before November 2nd.
    Still, it won't be all bad, I'll find the time to do it in my off hours. I think tomorrow I'll try to have it posted. As for the event itself, if I can reach my goal before the time is up, more power to me, and more time for my story.

    On the other hand, being in game so much really makes me realize how quiet Yggdrasil is now. It's a shame no one comes on anymore.But I think some of the membrs of Yggdrasil still are around. Though scattered among the different guilds, they're still there. I already Met Yuta and Xero, and possibly Trini, but I'm not too sure about him. The Chief and everyone else I'm still yet to see. Nevertheless, I think with this I'll give Sanctuary a slightly different ending.

    Lastly heres the link to the site etc. You'll know which is mine lol.

    Polar bear is much better then brownie
    getting from lvl 1 to 120 isn't that hard dpending on which class you pick for it. if i was doin the event I'd probaly go with a templar since Everyone needs one in a party to beat the shit out of some boss and blah blah blah

    The guild was already pretty quite whenever I was around, but now it sounds like its competely dead.which kinda sucks considering I like the guild.

    I was thinking of making a templar, but outside of party fights I don't think I'd handle too well. Since they're more defense based than offense, it leaves a sort of gap when you're working alone. I was thinking either Warlord or Treasure Hunter. Ended up taking the TH route lol.If I didn't have an engy already I'd make one. But I'm happy with my choice ^^. Moreover, I do miss everyone from the guild. Even though it's empty I'm gonna wait. Even if it's just one person, I wanna be there to meet them.
    More importantly, ALL HAIL BROWNIE!

    On a more thread related note, gonna get back to Sanctuary today. I'll put more time in than last time so I think the chapter should be done. After that I'll focus on finishing off Frequency and then going back to the Sanctuary rough copy again. So yeah, the good copy of Frequency will continue to be placed on fanfiction.net until I finish it, then I'll be posting Sanctuary here again until it's time for the finished product XD.

    So far so good ^^. Finally became 80 and became a Treasure Hunter. It's cool lol. Reminded me of my early days as a Bard. Gold rush is an amazing skill btw, every TH should get it. Dat gold (puts on sunglasses). On that note, I'll be getting a new outfit for my Bard and passing on the old clothes to my alt soon hopefully ^^. Along with the pet. Once I do that I'll show you it. It'll probably be TJ's new outfit later on in Sanctuary.

    But yeah Frequency is a whole new story xD. There's character development! Earlier on lol. I realized that Trini didn't have enough character, though he'd been around the longest and earliest. It's hard to come up with witty comments that he would have made if he was still around, but I do try to throw in a few every now and then. But yeah, I'm going to be making some more general changes to Frequency which will be posted there as usual. Chapter 5 got a new name and will be done very soon. Hopefully tonight and I'll have it posted before I get kicked out of here lol.
    As for Sanctuary itself, Chapter 1 is completely finished and will be posted in a matter of minutes. Was supposed to be posted a few days back but my old man decided to be a douche taco. Mission accomplished on that front.

    More importantly, if I could post a picture for Brownie I would but the interbuttz is denying me this so you'll have to do without it lol. Pink stormtroopers are totally cool though.

    TJ sat on a piece of land right on the outskirts of Elias and stared off into the distance of Elias fields. Adventurers were fighting odd little silk worm creatures and in the hilly distance he could see a set of tall white windmills. A gentle wind blew and he brushed his hair out of his face as he watched the sky turn a gentle red while the sun disappeared over the horizon.
    He placed one hand under his chin and sighed gently. “Peorth said she would call me and tell me where to meet her when the preparations are ready. But I dunno what to do in the meantime.” He muttered.
    It’s not like you ever really do anything anyway. What’s so different about what you’re doing now? Su said from within his crystal. It was if she was talking in his mind.
    TJ looked shocked for a moment but his expression changed back to his normal face quickly. “Usually I have someone to do nothing with so it’s not so boring. Or a few people, like Curt and Robo. Where are those guys anyway?”
    I dunno. Last time I heard anything about them they were going to Captain Bong’s Land. Idiots. If they have time to screw around than they could do something useful with it. But anyway, the Chief didn’t explain anything! What’s up with that?
    “I dunno. Maybe she forgot.” TJ scratched his cheek. “She seemed really excited today though. As far as I can remember, she usually didn’t get that excited over anything. Or...excited at all for that matter.”
    Meh.
    TJ chuckled. “I think it’s a good thing though. Well, a good chance for everyone really, to you know, take a chance to rest and stuff. Everyone must have been really working hard over the time I’ve been out cold. And the Chief was always working hard, even before I got knocked out. You should have a little fun tonight too. It won’t kill you right?”
    You make it sound like I’m anti-fun or something. Are you looking for a fight?
    “Actually...I’m not.” TJ answered with a grin. He took his odd blue guitar off of his back and strummed it gently a few times. “I’m feeling a little excited though. Like my stomach is doing backflips. Not in the bad way! You know, just...I’m just really excited.”
    If I wasn’t stuck with you in this body I would punch you in the face. Or kill you. Both are good options.
    “Good to know you care for my safety.”
    The sound of running footsteps caught TJ’s attention but he thought nothing of it. What’s so strange about someone running when there’s adventurers running around everywhere? At that moment TJ noticed he was falling forward with the weight of someone on top of him, and he fell face first into the grass. He quickly lifted himself up from the ground and spit out the dirt in his mouth, immediately turning around shouting, “what the-hell’s...your...Curt?”
    Curt lifted himself up from TJ’s back and started grabbing around somewhere in the grass. “TJ? That you? I knew it had to be!” He was squinting to the point where it was painfully obvious. “I dropped my glasses somewhere, help me find them dude.” Curt was a guy that stood quite a few inches taller than TJ. He had short black hair brushed to one side and crimson red eyes. He wore a green camouflage top with a black t-shirt beneath it, and black leather pants with a gold chain in the pocket. He also wore dark brown gauntlets and a red piece of cloth tied around his right arm. “Ah ha! Found ‘em.” He picked up a pair of yellow frameless glasses and placed them on his face. Maybe they were stylish this season?
    Su appeared from the crystal and said, “you’re both morons. I just thought you should know.”
    TJ laughed and said, “whatever you say.” Curt shifted the glasses on his face and TJ quickly brought him into a one-arm hug. “It’s good to see you man! How have you been? How’s your hand too? And where’s Robo?”
    Curt held one hand out and said in one breath, “beendoinggoodmyhand’shealeduppretty damngoodandRobosavedinCaptainBong’sLandsohecouldn’treturntotheAncientForestlikeIdidsohe’skindastuckinElfauntilhecanbuyanEliascapsulefromanadventurer.”
    TJ stared blankly for a few moments then finally said, “Oh! I see now! So you didn’t have any capsules for him?”
    “I did but I forgot.”
    “You’re terrible!” TJ said as he laughed.
    Curt laughed also. “Robo’s a big boy, he’ll figure it out. But man you’ve been out for way too long. So much has been happening. While you were gone Captain Bong’s Land and Midgard had been discovered, but we didn’t get to check out MIgdard yet.”
    “Midgard? You mean the Midgard?”
    “Heck yeah! It sounds awesome! It’s like Atlantis but on land from what I heard!”
    “I heard a bit about it from the Chief too. She said they’re well connected so Midgard is really high-tech. I kinda wanna go too, but it sounds pretty freaky.”
    “We should go sometime. Gotta wait for Robo though. I wonder if he’ll get back today.”
    “Next time try not to forget him.” TJ said chuckling.
    “I guarantee nothing.”
    TJ’s crystal began to glow and he looked at it nervously. “Su what are you doing?” He asked glancing at her.
    She crossed her arms and answered, “what am I doing? What are you doing?”
    “I dunno! I’m not doing anything as far as I know. It’s doing something though!”
    After a few moments the crystal’s glow dimmed slightly and a voice said, “TJ? TJ can you hear me?
    TJ looked alarmed now. “Chief? Is that you?”
    Yes it is I.” Peorth answered through the crystal. “I am pleased to know that the Heart of Yggdrasil is reacting properly to my fragment. I would just like to invite you to the gathering we will be having at the Elias Main Restaurant. If you see anymore of our members, would you invite them for me?
    “Sure Chief. I’m on my way.”
    Thank you TJ.” The crystal lost it’s glow and TJ glanced at the two.
    “You guys ready to have some fun?”
    “I’m always ready to have fun.” Curt answered.
    “Your brain is filled with fun Curt. There’s no room for much else. But yeah that sounds good. Let’s go.” Su commented.

    The three quickly scrambled up the ladder nearby and set out into Elias once more. The evening slowly went on as the sun set and the sky evidently became darker. The three headed to the Restaurant and stood before the doors.
    “Been waiting all day for this.” TJ said with a wide smile.
    “We’ve been waiting even longer.” Curt said nudging TJ with his elbow. “Past few months have been crazy. But I’ll tell you about that later. Let’s get in there!”
    Curt grabbed TJ’s wrist and pulled him with Su following behind the two. The restaurant itself was pitch black on the inside and the three came to an immediate halt shortly after entering.
    “It...It’s pretty dark in here.” TJ said bluntly.
    At that moment the lights immediately flicked on and the whole room came into sight with a bright flash revealing all the people in it, gathered around in a circle with the whole restaurant beautifully decorated with streamers, confetti, balloons and all sorts of other party preparations.
    “SUPRISE!” They all shouted in unison catching TJ off guard.
    TJ fell backwards with a surprised shout and quickly sat up looking absolutely terrified. “Holy crap...” He said brushing the hair out of his eyes. “I may have known about this, but I was just expecting like four or five of Yggdrasil’s members to be here to say hello and have dinner or something. Didn’t expect anything like this! And in such a short time too!”
    A cool looking waiter with chestnut hair and hazel eyes walked over to TJ and held out one hand lifting TJ up and dusting off his shoulders as he said, “ah Mr. TJ, you never cease to surprise me with your reactions, and actions.” He laughed. “Your guildmaster has been waiting, and had planned this out for you months ago. I had no choice but to oblige. Though you may have forgotten, I had promised before you had set out for your adventure to the Kimara Research Laboratory.”
    “Verun..” TJ whispered.
    “Ah..you haven’t forgotten me. It truly is a pleasure to make your acquaintance once more Mr. TJ. Now now, don’t let me take up all your attention. You have many guests you must greet!”
    Verun held out his hand and TJ was swarmed by Yggdrasil’s members.
    A guy with a headset crafted from the Sphinx’s armour and a traditional Belos jacket, jeans and coat walked over to TJ first and shook his hand. “It’s good to see you back TJ. Thanks for the save back at the Laboratory. I’m Deva, nice to meet you. Formally.” He laughed and walked aside.
    The next guy wore a leopard print hat over his wind-swept icy blue hair. He had deep brown eyes and a skin complexion lighter than TJ’s, and wore a blue jacket, leather pants and blue sneakers with black fingerless gloves. “Hey, good to see you again TJ. I’m Ken. We also met back in the Laboratory. I was the guy who was resting after he got his ass kicked by giants.” He said with a slightly embarrassed chuckle.
    The following person was a tall guy who wore tight-fitting black armour with matching horns. TJ looked fairly surprised by this. He had spiky blonde hair and crimson eyes. “Welcome back TJ. The support you guys provided us with back at the Laboratory isn’t something that I’ll forget.” He held out his hand and TJ took it and they quickly shook. “Call me Thee. It’s a pleasure.”
    After that a girl with pale skin, frilly pink hair, and small brown eyes approached. She wore a bride’s veil, a striped tank top, pink shorts with her legs fully bandaged. She also wore panda gloves and bear slippers. She grabbed TJ’s hands and vigorously shook them as she said, “thanks a lot TJ. Thanks to you guys we’re here right now! And I’m glad to see you’re alive and kicking! Not that I thought you were dead or anything!” She nervously waved her hands. “Anyway...I’m Amarylys!”
    Peorth followed afterwards and took TJ’s hands in both of hers as she said, “TJ, it truly is a pleasure to have you back, and to have you here among the Cerebians once more. In these difficult times, finding even the slightest ray of hope amidst the darkness seemed impossible, but with your awakening I believe that a victory in the Cerebian’s favour is inevitable.”
    TJ smiled. “You speak too highly of me Chief.” He said. He glanced at Verun and his wife Marin then back at Peorth. “But is it really okay to speak like this in front of Verun and Marin? I mean, isn’t all the stuff about the Gods secret?
    Peorth shook her head and said, “The Cerebian history and current information is nothing new to them. They have been the comrades of the Gods since my mother was young.”
    “So they know?!”
    “Yes they do TJ. Though I do not remember the details clearly, my mother had been quite the troublemaker when she was young. She often visited Midgard without a proper escort or permission and traveled across Jienda creating many problems for my Grandfather. During one of her adventures she had stumbled across this store and was given a meal by the owner of the store at the time.”
    “And that person was my Grandfather.” Verun said.
    “Yes...he was very kind to my mother. On every one of her adventures from that day forward she would visit him and have a meal with him, while telling him all she knew about the Cerebians.”
    “That’s really sweet.” TJ said smiling.
    “But, my mother was too young to know what she had done was wrong. She was brought back to Yggdrasil and was not permitted to return to Midgard, or converse with the store owner again. Soon after though, my father, who was just a boy at the time located and brought my mother from Yggdrasil to Midgard so she could visit the store but once more, to at least say goodbye. He knew that if he was to do this, he would be severely punished, even if he was a child. But he insisted on it even against my mother’s protests. They had successfully arrived and when they had they had found the entire area sealed with wards to keep humans away, and found the owner being arrested. The two children protested and did whatever they could to stop this from happening, and left the guards in a state of complete confusion.
    Upon asking my mother’s father what should be done, he had decided that they would let the man continue to run his business and to let the children visit him freely, as long as they have an escort. He also believed that the store’s owner should become a Cerebian Confidant. With this, not only did the interaction between Cerebians and Vandels increase, but the distance between the two closed ever more slightly. As for my mother, she had expected a punishment from her father for disobeying his orders and returning to Midgard. Though to her surprise, he was proud of her. She stood for what she believed in and fought to protect it. In that he saw himself, and was proud of what she had done. He also had taken quite a liking to the young boy who had become my father. As for the store, it prospered, with Cerebian men and women from all over coming to meet the new Confidant and to try the food recommended by the King of Yggdrasil himself.”
    The chatter of the guild broke the serene silence that fell among them when Peorth had begun.
    “Ah that story always brings a tear to my eye.” Verun said as he wiped his eyes with a handkerchief from his suit. “It reminds me of the days where my father had owned the store and Ms. Peorth was just a child coming to visit with her mother.”
    TJ was silent for a few moments until he said, “your mother sounds like a truly wonderful person. Just from that I can just imagine what she’d be like. And I think I can see a lot of her in you.”
    “Thank you TJ. It is an honour for me to be her daughter.” Peorth said half-smiling. “But let us not dawdle any longer. We are here to celebrate, not reminisce about the past. Everyone, feel free to help yourself to refreshments and mingle among your guild mates. Among everything else, please enjoy yourselves!”
    Everyone cheered and clapped as they separated into different parts of the restaurant and went about their business.
    “Hope you’ll tell me more about yourself and your family another time Chief. It all sounds so amazing.” TJ said dreamily.
    Peorth brushed her hair aside and seemed to glance away as she said in a somewhat somber voice, “in good time TJ, all will be revealed. My memories and yours.”
    At that moment she turned and walked away into the crowd and disappeared.
    “She’s as confusing as ever. Being direct really isn’t her specialty is it?”
    Su stood beside him and said, “Being smart clearly isn’t your specialty is it?”
    TJ snorted. “Whatever you say. More importantly, let’s go grab some grub.”
    “I’m with you there man.” Curt said quickly following TJ to one of the tables where food was laid out.

    As the party went on a person in a large Magnerg Mech came stumbling into the store and quickly came to a halt catching the crowd’s attention. The Magnerg itself was grey with a round pot like belly with the face placed on it, a mouth like vents and bright beady yellow eyes. It also had short stubbly legs, large round arms with an unusual orange design on both, exhaust pipes at the back and lights at the top. From it climbed a man with bright spiky blue hair, with sunglasses covering his crimson eyes and sporting a bright blue t-shirt decorated with yellow flowers. He looked worn out and ticked off, which lead to him immediately approaching Curt, shouting at and lecturing him for about twenty minutes. TJ and Su found it very funny, but Curt did not think so.

    After he was done TJ shifted his glasses to get a better look and said, “Wow, Robo...you sure have changed. New MG and everything! I’ve been away too long.”
    He grinned and replied, “Yep...got a new MG and a makeover. The new and improved RoboCurt is at your service.”
    TJ laughed. “Can’t wait to see what that can do. It has different attacks from your last MG right? This one doesn’t have any wheels or anything.”
    “Yeah it does. It’s a lot stronger in comparison to my last MG also. This baby cleans up Agasuras without a hitch. Took a lot of effort and saving up to build it.”
    “So what happened to your old MG?”
    “Sold it. Now that toolboxes are being mass produced in the City of Iron, the people of Jienda are studying to become Engineers, and the master Engineers will become a Meister like me. MGs are also being mass produced for when that time comes. Should have seen it TJ. As soon as the word got out of the Engineer being a possible class to study, there were planes constantly taking off for the City of Iron and on Jienda itself, a gigantic Engineer Boom. It was so big in fact, that the Game Master Association decided to have an event where all the new Engineers would gather in Belos to take pictures. Soon after they had another event, where everyone could come to Ves and get a glimpse of the new Valkyrie Magnergs. It was the sexiest MG I’ve ever seen. I should’ve been in one of them instead of Ignate or Iris.”
    “Wait did you say Iris?!”
    “Not that Iris TJ, it’s just another one of those frauds. She does look like Iris, but she really isn’t. If you had been at the GMA’s Christmas event, you would have seen the Iris Santa. She was the worst! Not only did she look nothing like Iris, she wore glasses and had a mole...and was dressed like a Santa. Somehow they got Sir Levi to dress up as a reindeer. It was seriously awkward.”
    “There...there’s something wrong with those GM guys...”
    “You don’t know the half of it TJ. Still, it’s been crazy but you’re back now. Things will probably be a lot more stable just by having you around. As for the GMA, I don’t know what they’ll do next but maybe it’s better if we don’t know. Now then, let’s have some fun.”

    Later in the evening Verun and some of his crew brought out some champagne, which they prepared in many glasses across a table. They called everyone over and Peorth picked up the first glass, everyone else following afterwards.
    She raised her glass and said, “To TJ’s awakening!”
    Everyone raised their glasses as they spoke in unison, and drank to the statement.
    TJ made an unusual face as he finished his glass and said, “That’s some funny tasting stuff. What is it?”
    “Champagne.” Curt answered quickly after he drained another glass. “The drink of the rich people!”
    “Curt, you know that’s politically incorrect...” Robo told him.
    “Who cares? It tastes good, so why not let me enjoy it a little more?”
    “I bet that if I dressed you in a caveman’s clothes and gave you a club, you’d feel more at home with that.” Su commented.
    “Yeah and if you dressed me in a monocle and suit I’d be such a gentleman your mother would be impressed.” He retorted.
    “Say it again! I dare you! Say it again you son of a bi-
    “Whoa whoa guys! Break it up already! We’re here to have a good time not to fight. Let’s all just have some sham-...shampagne...sham...shampaan...what was it again?” TJ asked.
    Champagne TJ.” Robo corrected him.
    “Right right. Mind if I grab some more of that?” TJ stuck out his glass but Verun shook his head.
    “You’re much too young Mr. TJ. You’re yet to see the world. Once you have, then, you will be ready to drink.” He said.
    “Whaddya mean I’m too young to drink?! I drink stuff all the time! And I’ve seen the world and I know it like the back of my hand!”
    “You have seen the world, haven’t you Mr. TJ? But you are still yet to see the adult world. In that regard, you are still very young.”
    “I don’t follow. I’m basically the same age as Curt. What’s wrong with me drinking it anyway?”
    “I’m older than I look bro.” Curt said under his breath.
    “It’s the alcoholic content Mr. TJ. This is not meant to be drunken by minors.” Verun continued.
    “Fine fine...have it your way.”

    TJ walked off and just rested against the wall drinking a glass of orange juice until someone had approached him. They had long pink hair, bright blue eyes, a black and gold sleeveless one-piece, rat gloves and matching rat shoes.
    She looked at TJ for a few solid moments and TJ looked alarmed. “TJ...it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you...or rather, since you’ve seen me.”
    TJ eyes grew wide as he whispered, “Amu...
    He stared in the face of Amu, now looking much older and worn out than she had before. Her eyes seemed to have dimmed and lost their glossy blue, clearly visible bags beneath them. Her hair was bushier, unkempt and graying slightly, and her expression seemed dull.
    She laughed weakly and said, “Since the battle at Kimara Research a lot has happened. Some of the Gods decided to leave because they lost faith in you and Peorth, or Yggdrasil as a whole. Alicia left saying that it was your fault that Trini was murdered and she believed you deserved what you got at the Laboratory…Lady Rai-”
    Amu was cut off as Curt quickly ran beside her and escorted her away as he said, “okay, okay that’s enough. I think TJ gets the idea. More than he needs to.”
    TJ stood where he was absolutely shocked. Su emerged from the crystal and watched as Curt escorted Amu away further into the crowd until the two were out of sight.
    “Trini’s death hit her hard.” Su said without turning around. “When we met her at Elfa on our way to the Laboratory, she seemed okay even though she wanted us to avenge him didn’t she? But that was nothing more than a facade. She was trying to hide the scars in her heart from his death. As time went on, they became more obvious. That, on top of doing her duties as an attendant, she hasn’t been doing too well. Sucks to be her. At least she can take a break form her work.” Su shrugged.
    “This...this is my fault...isn’t it..?” TJ covered a portion of his face with one hand as he shook his head.
    “You know, it actually is. But there’s no use in crying over spilt milk, or it just makes you a crybaby. Best thing you can do is not let it happen again. You’re stronger than you were before, so protect the Gods and everything will be fine. Easy.”
    “More like easier said than done. I can’t save a life. I live to fight...not protect. These powers of mine haven’t done good for anyone! Trini, Yuta, you, Moran, Straw Hat, and now Amu too...this is...it’s just a lot to take in. I’m gonna get some air.”

    TJ stepped outside into the somber night and stared up at the sky. The moon gently rested high up in the evening night amidst the dark clouds that passed over it, still shining its light through the darkness. Further off in the distance rested something else, with a light glow almost like a star. He sighed and buried his face in his hands and slowly removed them in reaction to the sound of approaching footsteps.
    From the darkness emerged Curt as he walked beneath a street lamp towards TJ. “Guess seeing Amu like that hit you pretty hard huh?” He said.
    “Seeing that was like a brick to the face with, ‘welcome back to reality asshole’ written across it.” TJ uttered.
    “Yeah...reality sucks doesn’t it? Kinda makes you just wanna have somewhere you can go just to get away from it all doesn’t it?”
    “If only.”
    “But listen TJ. Sometimes life sucks. It’s a part of life, and part of growing up. Shit happens, and you’ve just gotta suck it up and deal with it. Things change, people change, and sometimes it’s for better or worse. You’ve just gotta accept it and move on.”
    “But how can I just accept that?! Look at her...she’s...broken...how could I just play it off like nothing happened and move on with my life when she’s constantly suffering?!”
    “What else can you do TJ?! Tell me that! You can’t bring Trini back from the dead! He’s gone, and you’re gonna have to accept that! If you can’t get over how Amu is feeling how can you move on knowing that Trini passed away? That’s the root of the problem! But it’s something that can’t be undone! People have died, people are likely to die, and people are going to continue dying. It could be your fault, it might not be, but you’re gonna have to live with it TJ! So stop being so scared of the past and move on!”
    TJ stared down at his feet solemnly, letting his hair fall in his face and cover his eyes.
    Curt took a deep breath and exhaled. “I’m sorry for yelling. That wasn’t necessary.” He placed his hands on TJ’s shoulders. “TJ, listen closely okay? To mourn the death of someone is alright. We all do. But you can’t dwell on it all your life. You can keep them in your memory, and someday you may forget them, but even if you do it isn’t the end of the world. The loss of a loved one doesn’t need to be held sacred for your entire life. Someday you’ll have to accept it and move on. Give Amu some time. She’ll be alright. I know she will. As for you, you need to keep your chin up. You don’t need to stay miserable because someone else is. Your smile will brighten other people’s days. So stop being so sulky. Let’s go in and enjoy your party. Someone did this so they could bring a smile to your face you know.”

    The two went back inside and joined in with everyone else, chatting and reminiscing about all of the things that happened from when TJ joined and sometimes even before that, talking about the adventures some of them went on and what they saw. Curt went on a rant about TJ becoming the Tyrant of the Maelstrom at the City of Iron and the Messenger of Light in the Laboratory, and many of Yggdrasil’s members threw in their own knowledge about the forms and what legends they had heard of it. Talk of good triumphing over evil and the defeat of all sorts of demons by the hands of the many Cerebian heroes of the past followed afterwards.
    After the guild chatted and the evening had went on, some of the members began to disperse and head back to their homes. As they exited TJ waited at the entrance to say goodbye to his guests as some departed.
    As the final few left leaving just a handful of people consisting of Peorth, Robo, Su, Curt and Verun and his crew TJ glanced up at the star and sighed gently.
    Curt was right. I have to accept the past and move on with my life. What lies ahead…I’m sure will be more dangerous than anything we’ve faced yet. We still haven’t defeated Choen Palm, and there are still many more places infested with Agasuras. With this power…I can do that…right? This is where I would shine the most. I have to be ready for it. TJ thought clenching his fist. Still, the past is real; more so than I want it to be, and it’s hard to accept, but I have to learn to do that. Revere the past…embrace the future. TJ took a deep breath. But…these moments are real. Each and every one of them. Everyone here is real, and knowing about all that’s happened, and the outcome of these events I don’t have any doubts in my heart that not a moment of this could be a dream. This is reality…my reality, and I’ll shape it into one that will fill Yggdrasil with the hope that was lost. Little by little, until the day we don’t have to fight anymore.

    Talk about a wall of text! Thought I posted more than that. But that's all of the chapter nevertheless. Made a few subtle references to Frequency too lol. Since you read it you might actually catch them. It's a shame the forum doesn't have the indents and everything, so everything looks a bit messy on here, but beggars can't be choosers.
    As for the chapter itself, I had originally decided to make it all sunshines and rainbows with good times but in the end, I decided to change it lol. Add a little bit of that mature tone that I promised earlier on. But that's just the beginning Wink

    Hey Brownie(the pet) is cute and brownies(the food) are totally tasty D:. It's a win all around. You's just be jellin'.
    Anyway, yeah Sanctuary did take a long time lol. But that thing was like 20+ Google Docs pages. Those things are way loner than actual paper pages. You'd be surprised lol. As for Frequency, instead of putting it in parts I just do the whole thing every few weeks. I've been working on it a fair bit all today so I think chapter 5 should be up tomorrow. It'll likely be done today, and I'll have it posted tomorrow so I can edit, make any necessary changes, and look over the details. I don't wanna risk any huge faults in my story continuity lol. I also have an issue with getting the details wrong. Especially those Iris Stones. I heard something about Memorium being what created them but I don't quite remember. Might be some need to know stuff.

    Besides, Bards are better than socererors Very Happy. They've got way cooler spells and buffs lol. Even the sub-class looks cooler. The animations were weird though. for both.

    Brownies don't just sweep the ground, they also ride their brooms, which a polar bear can't do lol. All they can do is run around and look dumb :3.
    Secondly, not every bard is the same. Some choose to go the full support route, while others choose to be battle bards. Though I mainly play a support role as a bard, I did take some of the water spells just for any of the necessary occasions, and I also have the buffs I need to keep myself alive in battle. All in all, with the release of the subclasses there's a lot more choice lol. But damn, those lvl 5 skills are a real mofo to get lol
    More on topic, I should have chapter 5 posted on fanfic today, unless my old man decided to shut the internet off again. Sure as hell knows how to make my life difficult.

    Been away fro a while but I'm back now xD. As for the 5th skills, apparently you collect coins by completing 5th skill quests which you get from these scrolls. I ge tthe impression that they're like guild missions though, considering the fact that theres like 10 lvls to them, I think. Haven't tried it myself. Except theres no exp for completing them, just the coin at the end lol. Maybe they are easy, but the coins go for quite a bit, so I assume they're not. I had to buy the scrolls I have though.
    Moving on, I almost hit 120 but my comp bricked on me this morning so I decided to call it quits lol. Goodbye Brownie, and goodbye LT until...I fix my comp I guess. Sucks quite a bit, but beggars can't be choosers. Better luck next time.
    So yeah, gonna sulk and immerse myself in my work until I get over my grief lol. Hopefully I'll have chapter 6 up soon. In the mean time, I have plans for an extra chapter in response to my down time. So with that said, until next time xD

    I've seen a few of them. They were good for taking down really hard enemies like the colliseum cordless lol. Those things are seriously overpowered. Even the real ones are OPed when you're a low lvl. I wonder what the 3rd job skills would be like though. Read about them on the LT wiki, but most of them I'm yet to see myself. On that note, Chapter 6 of Frequency is finished and posted so it's up on fanfic XD.
    That chapter especially, I wanted to make a lot of changes. Mainly to what TJ had seen in the Iris Stone. Since you already read all of it it's okay to talk about that stuff here XD. When I had originally wrote it, it showed TJ's memory first, instead of him receiving a visit from one of the people of his past. I realized I had done it in the wrong order, but it was too important to remove or try to switch. So instead I decided for the most major memory fragments, such as that, or the memory of Yuta's hometown, I would put those first and the other second. If there was one for each of the factions, the Agasura and Cerebian memories would be done, and I'll incorporate the last in another one of the cities, either Ves or Midgard, in Sanctuary.
    But anyway, I'll be working on Chapter 6.5 so it should be done by tonight. It's short. As for the rest, I think I'll rework chapters 7 to 12 or 13 and the rest won't be changed much. Just a few tweaks and corrections. Most of them are pretty solid as is, and I'm glad with the finished product. Except seventeen. Forgot some important things 'cause I rushed that one so it requires tweaks. On the other hand, do you think it would be better if I split it into two parts like Chapter 16? It was pretty long for a single chapter.
