  1. In Pieces (RxD oneshots)

    @darwinI understand that so much, I should definitely be doing homework buuut here I am >.> (Yayy I'm even more excited for summer then) (sorry I feel the need to respond to literally everything but this is how I am XD) Cheese: Yes good, I am so glad you laughed at all the ridiculous jokes. And Lars XD He is me when I'm hungry. Galahad is one of my favorite parts so I'm glad you enjoyed it too! And just so you know I very much appreciate the jump from "I'M SMILING" to "I'M SO SAD," it's really nice to know the tone shift actually worked and also it warms my tiny heart when people gush about Rhen and Dameon to me <3 Something to Remember: Aah thank you!! Return: This one was written as part of a fanfic challenge from my sister and it was written mostly just for her to understand, so I was a bit nervous other people wouldn't connect to the imagery and story the same way she would so I'm really glad to read all of that! And of course it's always nice to hear people like my characterizations, and YES WHEN TE'IJAL GRABS GALAHAD'S HAND! I loved writing that part, I'm glad it made sense and was funny. And okay yes Rhen is the most precious and I'm so glad you caught on to all of that, thank you! Cold Encounter, Warm Heart: My reaction exactly, a lot of times these things just write themselves and I sit at the keyboard going "AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH" so thank you for sharing in my feelings. Dameon is just argh. And I love Te'ijal and Galahad. And Te'ijal and Elini. And can I adopt all of them please. I'm also really glad you liked the cautious nervous soft stuff, it's a huge part of, just, them, and it's what I live and die for. Smiling Hurts: Aaahhh me too, I always go through the conversation with his mom like 80 times when I play even though it's like 2 lines, it's one of my favorite parts of the series. Thank you for picking up on all of that, I just love these two. You would never believe how long I spent trying to decide what Rhen smelled like before it just kind of wrote itself, it just seemed so obvious after I finally stumbled on it. (Aaannnd now everyone knows what a nerd I am XD) THAT WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE JOKES OF ALL THE ONESHOTS so I'm really glad you liked it. AND THANK YOU. And I definitely read all of that, haha but TLDR; Thank you 1000000X for all your compliments and for sharing in my feelings!
  2. Mu11berry's Art-ish Looking Things

    Like a lot of you my exams are coming up and I'm a dead person, and when I'm a dead person I like to draw Aveyond fanart instead of being productive, so here's for day 15 of the 31 day challenge @Queen-of-Ice101 put together: Day 15 was favorite platonic friendship. I love a lot of Aveyond friendships, canon and crack, but I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to draw precious Frederick in a flower crown with a grumpy Devin and a mischievous lil Jack. Devin is one of the grumpiest characters of the series, second only to Galahad, Jack's so harmlessly wicked you gotta love him, and Frederick is the cutest lizard in Aia and the flower crowns were definitely his idea. (As per usual the scanner messed with the colors, and the same goes for this next piece, but whatcha gonna do) I said I draw Aveyond fanart to deal with exam stress, but specifically I draw Rhen and Dameon, and my troubles melt away~~ They are seriously so precious, I'm so grateful for their existence. A thousand thanks to Ant for giving me these two to get me through my life
  3. Like Mickychi said, the goodies can help a lot. There is also the Suggested Levels (+ Tips) page if you just want to see the usual levels for beating the monsters. The spoilers are written in white so you won't see them unless you highlight the text, and there aren't any quest related spoilers that I remember. The suggested levels are a little low if you want to easily beat the monsters; I would add maybe 5-10 levels for that, depending on the area, but you should be able to usually not die at the levels listed.
  4. In Pieces (RxD oneshots)

    Yes, tis I, totally updating again so soon. What I really want to do is share alllll the pieces right now but I am behaving myself. __________________________________________ Smiling Hurts So Dameon has another important, albeit short, conversation with his mother around this time in the game, and I wanted to mention it cuz it's sort of a big deal for him and also for the plot and the whole beautiful point of the entire game so there you go. After Rhen and co. bring Daena to Aveyond and do those other sidequests which happen there, they start sailing for the Southern Isle, cuz that's where the next daeva is— not that they know that, but plot, man, plot... Anyway, they do know that the next druid is there. So. And a tiny detail so you understand my lame jokes, Rhen only wears one earring. It’s true, look at her sprites. Can’t make this stuff up. Dameon had volunteered to steer the ship that night, mostly because he knew he wouldn't sleep anyway. Te'ijal had laughed and said there was no need, she could easily do it. Galahad had scoffed and declared the responsibility should be his, not a druid's. Lars had rolled his eyes, Elini had shrugged. Rhen had smiled softly at him and, with a firm look at everyone else, said she wouldn't stop him. So he was standing at the helm, while the ocean rolled the skudder gently and moonlight crowned the tops of the waves, and he wasn't paying near as much attention as he should be to what he was doing, because he was remembering. They had brought Daena to Aveyond and he had seen his mother again. She always asked him the same question— "Have you forgiven me yet?" — as if the answer would ever change, could ever change— Yet it had changed. He had felt the familiar burn of anger and hurt, and his mouth had been opened to say what he had always said before. But then the burning was gone, and he'd just felt— regret. Because he had lost his father? Or because his mother was estranged? Was he sorry for the vengeance he hadn't been able to take, or— or for what he had done already? "I... I don't know, mother." She'd stared at him sadly, and then Rhen had taken his arm and quietly told him it was time to go, they still had a lot to do. The sword singer led him from the Temple, and he did not resist. It was so easy to trust her, to depend on her. He didn't know how to trust someone, anyone, but he was doing it more every day. It was frightening, how she drew him in and took down his defenses, without even trying. Her smile made his throat tight and her eyes sent chills through him, strange, thrilling chills that left him feeling warm and broken wide open, the pieces that held him together scattered like so many fragments of glass, leaving him defenseless. She made him open to everyone else, too. He laughed at Te'ijal's jokes, even when he was the only one. He argued with Lars, but only because he admired the sorcerer's intelligence. He respected Elini because she knew what she wanted. He even liked Galahad, because at least the man was consistent. And— and— he had almost forgiven his mother, in that blind, bright moment. He didn't know if that was good or bad. It was easier to doubt everyone. It was safer to be alone. But Rhen— She made him smile without meaning to. He smiled when she blushed because she was genuine and charming. And when she'd insisted on helping those sick villagers in Dirkon, even though they were practically dead, even though they would never be able to return the favor, even though she hated, despised, and loathed rats (as she'd told him, several times) — he'd had to smile, because it was such a sweet, innocent thing to do. But he knew that she was not naive. She had been alone. She had been hurt and scorned and even betrayed, but she chose to help people anyway. That was the enchanting part, and the confounding part. It was the mystery, and it was changing him. A breeze buffeted at the sails and he readjusted the helm, but still he was hardly paying attention. Rhen had offered to help find Tiny, even after the fairy prince had told her she was clumsy. Technically, he had said humans were clumsy, but Rhen had taken it personally. Dameon had tried to reassure her that the fairy probably meant Vata, because Vata was old and slow, but Rhen had stayed mad for hours afterwards. Still, when the fairy prince offered a goose as a reward for her service ("A goose?" she had yelled, not quite angry but almost), she had thanked him. She'd done it so graciously, and awkwardly, and so Rhen-ly, that Dameon had involuntarily grinned at her, accidentally smiled, for the rest of the day, even when his cheeks got sore from it. That hadn't taken long, because he wasn't used to smiling. He was used to scowling, and feeling angry and hurt— He heard the door to the lower deck creak open; it was probably Te'ijal, bored of the quiet below. He tried to look like he had been paying attention to the sea, and not getting lost in his head. A slender hand wrapped around his arm and he meant to yelp but instead he just stiffened. He didn't turn around but he knew it was Rhen because she smelled like metal, and leather, and magic— that was the only word he had for it— and he couldn't remember how to inhale and everything felt warm— why was she so close? "Dameon," she said sleepily, "Te'ijal can't sleep any longer and she's keeping us all up. Can't you please—" she paused to yawn, and Dameon looked down at her in time to see the crooked little o her mouth made— "Can't you please let her steer now?" "Oh," was all he could manage at first, and then, after he had collected himself, "Of course." "Good," she said, and gave him a drowsy, happy sort of smile. Then, dropping her head onto his shoulder, "Your robes are so soft." And he smiled, without meaning to, again. "Rhen," he said, suddenly feeling brave, "can I— can I ask you a question?" "Mmhmm." He took a deep breath, and asked something he had wondered since he met her. "Why do you wear only one earring?" She looked up at him and shrugged. "Why do you only shave half your head?" He smiled and even laughed, which still felt so new and strange— and nice. "To annoy the Oracle, mostly." "Oh," she said, and yawned again. "That's actually a pretty good reason." Now he was grinning and he couldn’t stop. "I'm glad you think so." She nodded in a lazy sort of way. "I thought you were going to say something about your mother." He stiffened to brace himself against the rage that he knew would tear its way to the surface in just a moment— but it didn't come. He just felt lost. "I was proud of you when you talked to her," she continued, in a sleepy little voice. "Rhen, I— I didn't forgive her," he reminded her. "I am still angry." "I know," she said, patting his arm. "But you thought about it, and I know that was hard." She yawned, then tugged on his sleeve. "Come sleep now. I'm tired." He let her lead him down to the sleeping quarters, and to his mat which she had already laid out. She helped him settle into it, and kissed his forehead with a soft, "Goodnight, Dameon," before leaving to crawl into her own sleeping mat. And it didn't make any sense, but he felt peaceful and safe, and he slept easily that night, and smiled all through it. He knew, because, in the morning, his cheeks hurt.

  6. 2017-2018 Winter Exchange Submissions!

    (Hi I'm still here because I'm totally rereading for like the third time ahaha. I don't have an AO3 but if I need one to comment I'll get one this very moment, and I'll use Mu11berry unless the name is already taken. Thank you so much again!!)
  7. 2017-2018 Winter Exchange Submissions!

    @Ishti I am writing this from the underworld because I am DEAD FROM THE COMPLETE BEAUTY OF ALL OF THAT!!! Is there a place I can rant review without interrupting the flow of this exchange or should I just do it here anyway? Because I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO SAY, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! (And don't worry about any of it being "copy cat," 1. it wasn't because you came up with it yourself, though we do have ridiculously close characterizations of them holy guacamole, and 2. I have written so much for them I would be shocked if anything made for them didn't look a bit like something I'd already done XD) (I have started rave reviewing here like seven times now and keep erasing it because I'm trying to behave but that was just so beautiful, please give me permission to vent somewhere) @darwin Those are SO CUTE, you have such a lovely, distinct style! My giftee is @Queen-of-Ice101!! So now you know why I have been so impatient, Queen!!!! Please forgive me for the winterness ahahaha, but I hope you enjoy this! And thanks for everything you do for me (I'll post this on fanfiction.net too, so if the format doesn't work out here or something then it'll be fine there probably)
  8. Aveyond Winter Exchange (again)

    Yayy I am so excited, I have the patience of a squirrel and it has taken everything in me to not just give my giftee their gift XD XD I think last year a new submissions thread was made, but I was just a lurker then so I'm not sure. I'll check and edit this post if not EDIT: So yes, a new thread was made last year, if we want to stick with tradition
  9. Mu11berry's Art-ish Looking Things

    @Queen-of-Ice101 Thank you! I try hahaha @everyone Happy Easter!! I don't have new art exactly cuz this week has been craazy but here are some old pen doodles I haven't shared yet and also an old piece with added flower crowns. (Which, now that I think of it, giving old art new life sort of fits the theme so I'm going to pretend this was on purpose) I draw Rhen a lot so I finally decided to share some of the nicer sketches because Aveyond. (If these are the nicer sketches, what do the other ones look like? You don't want to know XD) When my roommate saw this pic she asked where the flower crowns were, so obviously I couldn't resist. Also I have decided the rhenxdameon ship name is wildflower. I voted and it was unanimous. OH ALSO. WHILE I AM HERE. Because I think about Aveyond way too much, I have a theory about the meaning of Rhen's name which I want to share. So. I’ve seen a lot of theories that say Rhen’s names is derived from the element Rhenium. Rhenium is a rare transitional metal that has historically been mined from the Rhine river, hence the name. The Rhine was used for trade and travel by the Holy Roman Empire. There are apparently a lot of rivers with the “rhi” base in the name (can you tell I’ve put way too much thought into this?), because “rhi” is a proto-indo-european root word for “to move, flow, run, and change” ie like a river does. Rhen is also apparently an Irish surname meaning young king, which fits the river thing because young kings are still becoming or changing, and which fits Rhen because she is a young ruler and Aveyond is her coming-of-age story (and one of the most beautiful ones ever told, might I add). And, of course, the word Rhen brings to mind the bird wren, a wild songbird known for it’s fierce protectiveness despite it’s small size (which is maybe why we all headcanon Rhen to be short? XD) So, with all this in mind, my headcanon is that Rhen means “to run wild as the river,” which is adorable for reasons. For one, it fits Rhen’s story of growing and becoming a powerful force for good. And also, just imagine Alicia picking out a name for her child, who she knows will have the same responsibilities she has and who will have to defeat a demon (remember, they knew the prophecy before Rhen was born). Alicia would definitely want Rhen to never feel tied down but also to understand the importance of her role and to have the confidence and courage to become the hero Alicia knew she could be. AND, Dameon means “to tame,” and Rhen helps tame the chaos that goes on in him and he makes space for her to be her wild free self and I am emotional

    I am laughing so hard, this is the most hilarious transformation XD Also, you really got that nose down!
  11. In Pieces (RxD oneshots)

    @Scrivener of the Gods Haha sorry, I meant your reading style. But thanks! @world Here's another piece because of how I am ________________________________________________________ Cold Encounter, Warm Heart My friend came up with the title, isn't it so cute? Daena is one of my favorite druids (I guess because she's purple? Also wisdom is cool) so I featured her here. The conversation Dameon is remembering is the one that occurs when you make Dameon the party leader and talk to Rhen in Sedona. (And said conversation is in italics btw) "I think you have a good heart, Dameon." That's what she'd told him in Sedona, and it kept coming back to him now, while Indra threw her spells at them. His magical shields were not going to hold out, he kept repairing them and healing whoever had been hit by Indra's ice magic, but he was running out of mana fast. They were out of restoratives, they were out of everything, and Indra's attacks just kept coming— "I think you have a good heart, Dameon." What was that, a good heart? Did it matter? What good could a heart do in a world that was cruel and unforgiving? And how could his heart, which could not forgive, be good? Why would she say that— The barriers around Rhen were breaking again and he frantically tried to mend them, but he couldn't do anymore, his mana reserves were empty. Indra's icy eyes met his and she laughed, she knew that Rhen was defenseless now. She raised her arms to cast her fury. Rhen could take it. She could take anything, because she was determined and tough— But she shouldn't have to. That's the last thing Dameon thought before he shoved her out of the way. Indra's spell hit him and he crumpled to the ground. He wasn't strong like Rhen, the spell was already sapping his strength, leaving ice in his bones. "You fool!" Indra shrieked. "Traitorous wretch! You will pay!" She raised her arms again and all Dameon could think of was that talk in Sedona, “Do you think you will ever forgive your mother for killing your father?”— No, no because he would die first— “I think you have a good heart, Dameon.” Whatever that meant, if it meant anything— But Rhen yelled and thrust her sword through the demon, Indra screamed and disintegrated, she was gone. Te'ijal was picking up Daena's soul and Galahad was taking it from her— "Dameon, are you all right?" Rhen was kneeling next to him, pulling his head onto her lap. He didn't know what to tell her. He was cold and getting colder— "I'm—fine—Rhen," he shivered. "Can you stand?" He let her help him up but he couldn't feel his legs, or his chest, and he collapsed against her— "I think you have a good heart, Dameon." "Rhen—" She was saying something to him but he couldn't understand her, everything was muddled and cold. "Help me—" Rhen pulled him onto her back and he wrapped his arms around her neck. He clung tightly to her, because she was warm. Because she was the only stable thing he knew. She carried him through the ice caverns, and everything but the bright purple of her hair slowly faded. He was numb, he couldn’t feel his own breathing. The only real thing was her sturdy back. Then… then… It was dark… and voices… "Sun priest. Sun priest! Wake up." "Mmm—" "I know. You must get up. There is much work to do." He opened his eyes slowly. Everything ached, and it was too bright. He blinked and tried to understand his surroundings. He was lying on a mat. Everything was white and purple; he must be at the Moon Temple. He looked up at his caretaker— "Daena?" The Druid of Wisdom smiled knowingly. "I suppose I am not who you were hoping to see." He blushed and cleared his throat. "Where—" "I sent everyone outside because they couldn't keep quiet," she said briskly. "Now, up with you. There is much work to do." He sat up and the room tilted. He squinted and held his head in his hands to soothe the dizziness— "You seem to have caused the chosen one considerable distress. I suggest you talk with her." She spoke so quickly, his spinning head couldn't keep up. "What—what am I to tell her? Daena looked at him sternly. "The truth is always best." Then she stood. "Come, now. We must get to Aveyond before it is too late." Dameon pushed himself to his feet (his legs were working now, at least) and followed Daena out of the room. Elini was sitting on the stairs in the main room of the temple. Te'ijal crouched above her, knotting the demon summoner's hair into some sort of elaborate updo. Galahad watched with a disapproving frown, and Lars sat nearby reading one of his spellbooks. The sorcerer looked up and smirked at Dameon. "Good morning, sleeping beauty." Elini turned her head towards him. "Sun Priest, I am glad you are feeling better." "Welcome back to the world of the living," Te'ijal added, and Galahad bowed respectfully. Dameon tried to appear grateful for their attention, but— but— "Where is Rhen?" They all looked at him and frowned. "Where— where is she?" "Calm down," Lars said, turning back to his book, "she just went to train on some ice slimes." Dameon all but ran from the temple, she shouldn't be fighting so soon after the battle with Indra— He slipped on the ice outside, scrambled to his feet and tried to hurry across the bridge, but something hit his chest and he fell again— "What are you doing up?" "Rhen—" "You should still be resting!" "Rhen, you are injured!" Her arm was bleeding. He stood up quickly and reached towards her to try a healing spell— "No!" she said violently, pushing his hands away. "You don't have the strength for this right now! You can't do everything, Dameon, sometimes you have to just stay back, and let me handle it! I can take care of myself!" "Rhen—" he began, not sure what he wanted to say. He was flustered, why was she yelling at him? "Why didn't you let that spell hit me?" she demanded, her violet eyes piercing him through. "I could've taken it! It should've been me on the ground after the battle. It should've been me in there with Daena. Why couldn't you just let me take the hit?!" "I— I—" "You thought I wouldn't be able to handle it?!" "No! Rhen, I—" "Then why, Dameon! Why—" "Because I care about you!" She stared at him. He would have stared at himself, if he could. But there it was, there was the terrifying truth. She turned away. "I couldn't do anything to help you. I failed you." "No," he said quickly, taking her hand. "No. Rhen, you got me to Daena. You saved me in more ways than you know. Please," he squeezed her hand because he was afraid, suddenly, that she would disappear, like everything stable did— "let me help you. It is good for me to help you. I..." he swallowed, and said it again. "I care about you." She looked back at him, and her eyes were soft now, and his chest was tight. She breathed in deeply and blew her bangs out of her face, and put her free hand over his. "I'm sorry for yelling," she said, and her face was pink. "I was just frightened because— I— care about you, too." He smiled and felt so happy and terrified that he took both her hands and kissed them and blushed. She rested her head on his shoulder and let him heal her arm, and said quietly, "You have a good heart, Dameon." And just then, he thought maybe he did.
  12. Mu11berry's Art-ish Looking Things

    I didn't make anything for Saint Patrick's day but I do have this Clearwater aesthetic which has a lot of green so I'm going to pretend I was prepared hahaha So anyway yeah, enjoy this aesthetic of Rhen's hometown. Sheep, meadows, and apples. What did you expect? XD I also have this aesthetic for Alicia Pendragon Alicia is one of my fave characters in the series (which I say about every character BUT IT'S STILL TRUE), she's got such grit and I love her. (Also I love how much Rhen takes after her, and also how much she doesn't, she's determined to be her own person which ironically is totally an Alicia thing and don't let me analyze these character I will actually rant forever) As usual, images for both aesthetics are from pinterest. Except the quote on the Alicia one, that was one of her lines in Ahriman's Prophecy. Aannnd another entry for the 31 day fandom challenge by @Queen-of-Ice101 (I'm almost done okay guys) Day whatever-this-is of the challenge (14 I think?) is otp of Aveyond 2, and obviously I picked Iya Tiki and Ean Okho. I don't think anyone is surprised I picked the two fluffiest sappiest sweetest characters, hahaha. Their friendship is one of the truly lovely things in this world <3 Also I almost forgot their elf ears but my roommate reminded me so everyone thank her for not allowing me to make such a grave mistake To be fair their ears were originally hidden under the flower crowns but it still would have been a shame And also, because I doodle in class instead of paying attention and color instead of doing homework, here's a messy rhenxdameon sketch which I'll probably make a nicer version of eventually but for now I sort of like the chaotic lines look They're in a meadow and they're doing the run-jump-spinny hug thing because fluff is life and also I got carried away with the flowers again ahaha
  13. In Pieces (RxD oneshots)

    @Scrivener of the Gods Thanks!! I wouldn't have thought this was really your style of story so I'm very flattered
  14. What culture Aveyond 1 cities are based on

    I don't know enough about Chinese history to comment on the slaves as cattle thing, but I am pretty sure slavery has existed in almost every culture at some point in time. I agree with most of the comments on which culture places are based on, but I would add that the Northern Isle also has some definite European influences. For climate, Veldarah and Ghalarah are tropical but on the swamp end of tropical (I don't know the technical term haha but it's definitely not all palm trees and flowers like some people associate with tropical). (Also on the subject of the names being Eastern I think Moonie just meant the isle they're on is called Eastern Isle, but idk). The Wildwoods, Halloween Hills, and Land's End are definitely different. You have to go up through the mountains to get to the Wildwoods so it makes sense that it would be cooler up there; again, don't know the technical term, but it probably snows there in the winter and all the snow melts in the summer, that sort of thing. Halloween Hills is a mystical eternal Halloween type place so I'm not sure we really have a word for that kind of climate? I imagine it has stereotypical October weather haha. And Land's end is sort of in the valley of Mount Orion so it's probably warmer and gets frequent rain from being so close to the coast. The northern part of the Western Isle seems cooler to me but maybe that's just the coloring of the maps. The southern half does seem to be lower elevation, though. But at the end of the day I think you can make up whatever you want for culture/climate/etc, because while the places are loosely based on real-life places, they're meant to exist in a separate world so they aren't meant to be exactly like the real-life places. (Which explains the overlap in the cultural influences.)
  15. Mu11berry's Art-ish Looking Things

    @Scrivener of the Gods Haha, that's true. There are so many largely ignored characters and Haddan might be one of the most forgotten. I remember the story! I was interested in that one. Anywayyyy I have more art, I've been kind of behind in my sharing ahahaha. But this will catch me up for now XD An aesthetic for Stella! She's such a sweet cute gentle but firm soul and she deserves the world. Actually literally Aia would have pretty much ended without her so XD As always, images from pinterest i really need to get help for my aveyond obsession ahaha ~~~~~~~~~~~ A tiny fanart of the wedding of Rhen Pendragon and Dameon Maurva, made by editing the sprites from the game and making a background. I am o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d Again, obsessed. Dameon is soft and gentle and Rhen is fierce and strong, and together, they're brave, and I... am a melted mess. The background is based on the AV1 title screen! I really loved the mountains. Also, Rhen has freckles! (I have been waiting to use one of those emojis hahaha)
