Okay but: Post-AV3 AU where Mel/Gyendal is canon, and Yemite lives with them and is lowkey subsumed into their relationship over time. Edward/Stella is also canon. Since Mel and Ed are BFFs, they regularly get together to gripe (and gush) about their nonhuman partners.
Might have to incorporate some of this into one of the fics I'm writing

So here's the status for Aveyond 3-1: Lord of Twilight ie Gyendal ie Te'ijal's brother ie Why must it happen this way
"Welcome to Aveyond!" says the little blue screen. Aaah I'm home
Mordred calls the orb "my pet" that's so creepy
What is it with these blue haired guys tryna be noble and
Okay but I would totally play a game about Rayina gathering her
own ragtag group of heroes and rescuing her husband from this
madman-- I mean her father-in-law. Why must it end this way T.T
Aaand now time to propel Mel recklessly towards her dark
destiny. Sorry, Mel. On the bright side you get to meet Stella
Ahahahah I went on the wrong balcony and Gyendal's sprite is
just kind of glaring down at me
Gyendal what if I don't wanna talk to you
Bye now I'll just live in the night forever
Okaayyy fine I'm going to Darkthrop Keep.
Hahahahaha it has a mailbox. I guess just cuz you've been dead
for 200 years doesn't mean you don't want your mail delivered
I forgot how cocky Mel was XD XD But for her it's just
endearing. I guess cuz she's pretty much the bottom of the
foodchain already so it comes across more as spunk and a healthy
respect for herself instead of disrespect for other people.
I love that the corpes disappear after I check them. It just
makes everything so much nicer (and prettier, it did kinda ruin
the landscape when there were just red splotches everywhere)
Aaaahhh they rearranged the menu on me I forgot. I couldn't find
"items" for a good few minute ahahahaha
Uuuuggggghhhh back to Gyendal. It's like talking to that stupid
slave trader in AV1. I know I gotta, but I don't wannnnaaaaa
I love how Mel runs behind her XD XD
Te'ijal saves Mel, fights Gyendal off, and tells Mel to run. But
does Mel run? Of course not. You lil rebel
Mel: I'm not a fool!
WE JUST JUMPED OFF THIS BUILDING. AAAHH
But it's so adorable how Te'ijal calls Mel rabbit. Also a little
creepy but really. So cute
This apartment is 20gp. Now I know why Mel was so excited about
a measly 90 XD Yayy for not being homeless!!
Thought I had found Edward. Was actually Oscaar. With two a's.
Okay but how Ulaf says "Another one?" Like, how many students
has Te'ijal sent over in his lifetime? And why? Obviously they
weren't all Darkthrop descendants. I need these answers.
Eeeeeyyy there's good ole Ed. Snooping into everyone's business
as usual XD I love him.
Inviting us to hang out with the cool people (or probably the
nerds actually but XD) He's a good kid
Aahh yes. That one student who is perpetually late to class and
yet persists in pacing his/her quarters. There must be at least
one in every game. (But actually what are all these beds for?? I
have to rent a room and I did in AP too so idk who's sleeping
WHY AM I TAKING A NAP IN A TREE?!? I BOUGHT AN APARTMENT. MEL.
WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS.
Found Ely's house. Aaannnd here comes Edward to "help" me. He's
got a lot of Devin in him XD
Door closes as soon as Mel approaches it. First response is to
blame Edward. Not a very trusting person, is she? Oh Mel <33
THESE STUDENTS ARE SLEEPING IN THESE BEDS!! WHY CAN'T I SLEEP IN
A BED??!! I TOOK A NAP IN A TREE!!!
Aahhh I love how excited Mel is to become a spy. It's so cute
*6 months later*
*I get to play as Te'ijal*
*Yeeess I forgot this part I'm so excited*
I found the Vampire Guild and there are ashes everywhere? I'm
just a bit concerned is all.
Galahaaaaad. Just listen to your wife T.T
Welp those skeleton guards killed me twice but I prevailed in
the end. Shoulda bought some healing items for dang Galahad
Back to Thais. Mel is late to class. I bet she's real good
friends with that other perpetually late student.
Ah, the cutscene where Mel tells me how much she hates Lydia. In
case anybody hadn't caught on that she'd be important later.
Mel is so embarrased about buying the dress though ahahaha I
The red dress actually looks nice on Mel and it's just a nice
change cuz the last dress I bought. No. No.
When you're all dressed up for the fancy ball but you have no
idea where the castle is ahahahahaha
Aah here we are. There's a line of statues so this must be it.
Apparently Edward sucks at school? That's so cute? Why did I not
know this? Can I keep him?
Mel is so mad that he's royalty XD XD IT'S OKAY MEL HE WILL
STILL BE YOUR FRIEND STOP FREAKING OUT
Also Mel looks so much like a duck when she's angry I can't take
Aaand here comes the part where Edward proves he is actually
Alicia reincarnated as her own great great- etc grandson ie "I
don't want to get married! I want to stay single and let my hair
flow in the wind as I ride through the glen, firing arrows into
the sunset!" or something like that
WE JUST WATCHED STELLA HECKIN FALL FROM THE SKY!!! (that's so
oddly romantic. Edward can seriously say that stupid pickup line
about "did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" XD XD)
"I'm a condemened man on his last leg!" XD XD Aaand he is also
Nicolas, with all the drama his station requires and then some
Goin with Edward to find Stella~~~ (I'm pretty sure, maybe I
remember wrong ahaha)

Happy New Year, everyone!
I've been thinking a lot about how I should improve my writing, and most of my beta-readers have suggested that I work on how I develop my plots, so that's my New Year's resolutions for this year!!
Hopefully, it doesn't go to the trashcan 20 minutes after I make it. XDXD

@Mu11berry's in-depth playthrough and commentary of AV2 has led me to do some thinking on my favorite and first Aveyond game, and I've come to a realization on why it stands apart from the other AV games (for me, anyway).
Aveyond 2 is ultimately a story about building people up so they can help others heal. All of the games have this element of character development, but in AV2 it's literally the entire plot. In AP the 'collection quest' is building a weapon, in AV1 it's defeating the daevas, in AV3 it...jumps around a bit, but it's still focused on defeating Gyendal more than anything, and AV4 doesn't have one I think? But SotM is so different thematically from the others I'll just leave it aside. But in AV2, it's about restoring Iya's spirit, making the protagonist's character development and growing strength into something literal, rather than being about destroying or defeating a villain.
And as far as the final battle goes, all the others are fairly straightforward - defeat the evil villain with the help of your party so good prevails. Not that I have any problem with this plot - it's a classic for a reason, after all - but it makes me appreciate AV2's final battle all the more. First you have to defeat the Snow Queen, the antagonist of the game...but you don't really defeat her, you redeem her. The Snow Queen is Ishtar, the nymph of compassion - which is exactly what Iya showed when she gave Ishtar the love blessing at the end. Ishtar took Iya's spirit, so now Iya has to give Ishtar her spirit before she can receive the final blessing and go home. See the parallels?? Giving, not taking or defeating, is the answer. And even Heptitus, the real 'big bad', isn't a standard villain either. As the nymph of wickedness, Iya needed her blessing to be whole again, just as much as she needed Ishtar's blessing. And as the nymph of wickedness, she's really expected to do these kind of things anyway And at the end, rather than punishing her children, the Goddess shows forgiveness and gives them an additional chance to redeem themselves.
The characters in the party reflect this theme as well. Ean is the main character and party leader, but his main goal is to help Iya with her journey and to unite the kingdoms behind her. This struck me as odd to have a side-character as the protagonist, but now I realize it fits with the theme of supporting and building others up. Nicolas' story is almost a microcosm of the plot as a whole, since he grows so much as a person once he's exposed to the world. He wasn't really a bad guy - spoiled and selfish and naive yes, but not truly evil - but like Ean and Iya, his journey (and Ava, bless her) turned him into the best version of himself. It wasn't about breaking the haughty, it was about turning him into a better person.
Aaaaaand I'll stop ranting now

Hello! I'm back~ And crying because my partner for the Secret Santa has tastes that I'm not familiar with, sobs...
So, uh, update on my life if anyone is interested, I just turned 13 a few weeks ago and I'm really happy and also really sad because I still want to be childish () and I'm now welcomed to the life of people saying "Oh, it's because she's a teenager." Welp, what is life?
I'm also going to the Miku Expo that's actually tomorrow (yes, tomorrow!) and I'm so excited because I'm so shocked that my childhood dream actually came true when I had almost given up on it! I'll have to pinch myself a few times at the venue to tell myself that this isn't a dream and I'm living in the present, ahahaha!
Welcome back to @BlackPrincess too, by the way! Did you do well on your exams?
That's all I have to say, I suppose. XD I'll have to start clearing out whatever is new in the kingdom!

So... I was trying to play Aveyond 1, but instead of clicking the icon on my desktop like I usually do I went through my program files to do it (don't ask me why I can't explain myself), and when I opened it there was just one save file near the beginning of the game??? Also, it was Build B??? So I opened it from the desktop and it was Build C again and it had all my save files. So I apparently have two builds?? Somehow???? I don't know what's happening ahaha

Why are humans... Human? Because God made us that way.
I'm sure, when everyone was like three or four, they wondered. Why am I myself? Like, we pondered over why we had control over our own bodies. Why didn't we have the control over our mother's body? Why not our father's?
Life's greatest mystery to a child. XD
