Have some of these high quality pictures of your beloved OP best girl; Velvet Crowe.
The first chapter of AltZestX is out! I will test the waters slow with this one and continue to prioritize Avernus x Velvet story in AltBersX. The next chapter of AltBers is around the corner so don’t worry about that one since it’s going to be a start of a new plot in Velvet Crowe’s story.
The story is supported by my Beta, Soulakai. If you need help with anything needs proofreading, you can go and acquire his terrific skills here:
Welcome to the Menagerie, Dhaos. Eizen would like to give your coin back.
Alisha Diphda, the princess of the Hyland Empire, sitting on a bench in the garden, was waiting impatiently for Shepherd Sorey and her friends to come back from Rolance. Alisha set down the book of her ancestry and leaned her head against her arm, smiling a little to herself as sunlight warmed her face through the leaves.
Alisha raised her head and saw her friend, Sirel, putting down a cup of hot coffee in front of her. Sirel brushed a hand over her short black hair, and her blue eyes glanced amusingly over Alisha. “What has gotten into you today, princess? You’re so spacy!”
Alisha shook her head slightly and closed the book. “Sorry, I was just… lost in thought.”
Sirel leaned forward, squinting at the old leather-bound journal that Alisha was reading. “Is it the Diphda ancestry records that lady Maltran gave you?”
“How far back do these records go?” Sirel asked.
“Not much. The rest goes into legends way before our time, but then it is not enough for me.”
A moment of silence passed between them. Alisha took a sip from her cup. “I have received Sorey’s message… and I really want to know my family’s connection to the Shepherds.” Alisha put a hand on her warm cheeks as she blushed, lost in her dream. “Thinking about my ancestors were Shepherds and heroes. It’s exciting, isn’t it?”
Sirel locked her hands behind her head, pursing her lips. “You certainly let these things get to you…”
Alisha shook her head, and her dreamy face reverted. “No, I’m not! I’m just admiring them…Whoever they were.” Alisha recalled no traces of them in her family’s records, and gloom flitted behind her eyes. Alisha sighed and turned to Sirel. “Any news of lady Maltran?”
“No, I couldn’t find her. She is probably doing her daily inspection of the barracks.” Sirel suggested, “Today’s going to be a breeze though as usual, no sweat. Even without lady Maltran around.”
Sirel grinned before turning her attention toward someone approaching the as Alisha took another sip of her coffee and relaxed. “Oh god, would you look at that?”
Alisha turned to look at the direction Sirel was talking about. She recognized the red-headed Ian, one of her guards and the close friend of Sirel, pacing to their side from the castle. “Look at that hair. Fashion tragedy at twelve o’clock.” Sirel mockingly said.
Alisha groaned to herself, narrowing her eyes at Sirel. “If you can’t say something nice…”
“Princess… be fair! Look at those bangs! Who could say something nice about that?”
Alisha crossed her arms and leveled a scolding glare with Sirel. “You could if you tried.”
Sirel rolled her eyes. “Ugh. Okay. At least her uniform is neat, I guess.”
Ian noticed Sirel’s up-to-no-good gaze as she joined them. “Was she bad mouthing me again?”
Sirel grumbled to herself, her brow furrowed. It made Alisha smile. “No, it was nothing. Sirel is just having some adjustment in her view of others.”
Ian sighed, eyeing Sirel suspiciously. “Shepherd Sorey has arrived. They’re in the castle, waiting for you.”
Alisha scrambled from her seat. “Really?!” She beamed and rushed towards the palace. Sirel and Ian trailed behind her.
“Slow down, princess!” Ian said.
But she was already bounding away down the corridor as they entered the castle and the giant double doors. Alisha steeled herself before pushing them open in a hurry. They slopped into the guest hall, illuminated dimly by the light that shone through stained glass windows. Alisha caught a glimpse of Sorey, Mikleo, Rose, and Lailah, waiting for her. Their heads swiveled in Alisha’s direction.
“Hey, Alisha!” Sorey waved her over, and she hurriedly paced towards him.
In his letter, Sorey reported that their mission in Rolance was successful; the city was returned to normal. With bearing the news from Emperor Dorian, the day couldn’t get better for princess Alisha…
Out of the blue, the palace began to shook, and chandeliers swung left and right. Alisha and Sorey both stopped, their eyes widening. Sorey suddenly clenched his chest and clawed where the heart was. “Ngh! No!”
Alisha’s eyes fell on his twisted face. “What is going on?!”
Mikleo rushed to his side, holding his arm and pulling Sorey up. “Sorey! What is it?!”
Lailah scrambled to join Mikleo and Sorey but then glowed to her spot, whipping her hand toward the main door, fear flitted behind her bright eyes. “This can’t be…It’s…!”
Alisha followed her gaze. She gasped as the doors heaved inward and exploded in a fiery blast. Alisha covered her face and braced herself. The burst wave hit her body and threw her over to the other side, debris raining down all around her. Alisha struggled to get up and saw several soldiers and guards staggered from the smoke. One of the castle guards held himself against the wall with one arm. “Someone… help.”
Another fully armored guard fell to his knees in the middle of all broken woods and stones, mumbling. “Please…”
Alisha’s senses heightened and quickly sobered, focusing. She called out in a voice, striding and hardened. “Everyone! Get back to the halls and assume defensive positions!”
Sirel and Ian struggled to their feet, stepping forward, and knees shaking as they fought back the shockwave’s dizziness. “Princess, what are your orders?” Sirel asked vigilantly.
Alisha gestured over the wounded soldiers staggering in the smoke. “Take the wounded out, and look out for any signs of intruders!”
Sorey and the rest join Alisha. He was still clutching his chest, but his expression was now collected. “Alisha, order your men out of here.” He suggested.
“What is it? Malevolence? Why we didn’t sense it sooner?” Alisha asked, eyes searching for the enemy amid the chaos. But there was none.
The worst part, the Shepherd, was unsure of himself. Sorey turned to Lailah, and she shook her head slightly.
Alisha’s glance shifted back and forth between Sorey and Lailah. “Hellions?”
Sorey nodded skeptically. “Yes… but we need to get you out of here.”
Alisha instantly frowned, “Getting me out of here?” She strengthened her posture firmly. “I’m not leaving my men behind.”
Sorey agreed with her and whipped his sword. “Then, we’ll protect you…” His bond with Lailah surged up, and he raised his sword skyward. “Fethmus Mioma!”
The transformation illuminated the area around them. But over Sorey’s shoulder, something caught Alisha’s eye. In the dark corner behind a column, she saw a smudge or a shadow, settling down in the dark. Alisha looked around, but it seems she is the only one who noticed it. She stepped closer to the back. The shadow pulsed, it grew, and she tilted her head even closer.
Sorey whipped his head alarmingly at Alisha, sensing the dark corruption building up. “Alisha!”
The shadowy figure turned a violent shade of red! An opening appeared below its two hollow eyes as it let out an angry hiss. It launched itself at her, sending Alisha reeling. She tripped over her own feet, falling backward as the hellion sprang. Sorey scrambled and slashed his sword at the hellion, sending a wave of fiery magic. The creature sensed the attack and split into two. The arte missed the hellion as it flew between the wide gap. It connected instantly and threw a large claw as its dark nails extended. Sorey put up a firm guard, and the attacked bounced off.
As Sorey and the hellion were at each other, a strange voice whispered to Alisha from the shadow. “Hey, pssst! Miss. Alisha!”
The princess whirled her head alarmingly at the source. She scrutinized into the dark and could make a small creature, the same size as a normin and wearing a large hat, was talking to her. “I’m here to help!” He whispered and tossed something. Alisha caught it as she opened her fingers. It appeared to be a necklace with emerald stone, the same color as her eyes, was in the middle. “What is…”
Alisha raised her head and the small figure was gone.
“Watch out!” Sorey’s shout pulled her back to reality as the hellion pounced at her from behind.
Alisha quickly rolled out of the way, throwing up her arm guard to keep it off. Suddenly, a bright beam, golden as the sun, shot from her palm where she held the necklace, blasting right through the hellion’s middle.
Alisha gasped as her eyes widened. “How…?!”
Even though the light had faded, her palm still glowed warmly. The hellions had been reduced to nothing. She opened her hand to feel the energy humming inside of her, and instantly Alisha knew it had been there all along.
Somewhere under the surface. Somewhere secret.
Sorey and the rest watched her in wonder. As soon as Alisha’s own baffling gaze clung with Sorey’s, she sensed that he wasn’t surprised like the others.
“Sorey… What is happening to me?” Alisha asked.
The Shepherd turned to the exit door and extended his hand. “First, let’s get out of here. Then I’ll explain…”
Sorey cut himself off and whirled to his back. Alisha’s new senses picked up a mighty and distant power rushed to them all.
“A Domain!” Sorey shouted, and a dark wave instantly swept all over them.
Alisha cupped her hands over her ears as her eardrums battered by the magical surge. Alisha struggled to look at her friends. She saw Sorey had been reverted back with Lailah falling on her knees. Sorey raised on his feet but his body began to flicker. Mikleo raised his hands and gazed over them in shock. “Sorey… our magic!”
Their water arte surged, and the water spouting out of a small fountain nearby turned into a high-pressure flood. “It’s out of control!” Mikleo yelled.
The hinges on the doors began to rattle before they shatter and break off. The flames along the walls flared, and water started floating the hall.
Sorey winced in pain as his magic burst from him, out of control. Flame artes ricocheted off the walls, and the rest dived to the floor to avoid getting hit.
“Sorey! What are you doing?!” Alisha demanded.
Sorey twitched in pain. “I don’t know! I can’t control my–”
A gust of wind exploded from his body, sending Sirel and Ian flying down the hall. A statue bust slammed into Sirel’s head and she was knocked unconscious. Sorey’s power raged uncontrollably. His fire magic flared up, blinding Alisha.
She stroked her eyes, and her vision snapped back into focus. Sorey’s magic was flaring in a visible aura around him. Mikleo caught Sorey’s shaking body and turned to Lailah. “What the hell is happening to him? How do we stop this?”
Bere Lailah could respond, flagstones tore themselves out of the walls, and whizzed over their heads like bullets. Lailah cast the flagstones aside and gestured her arms at Sorey and he was wrapped in a shield. His powers momentarily contained, but the Seraphim magic continued to spark around him.
Alisha watched Sorey in dread as he twitches around, groaning in anodizing pain. Then as Mikleo and Lailah reached to him again, over their shoulders, a lonely, tall shadow marched toward them. Alisha squinted her eyes and saw a tall man, all dressed in dark, smirking and raising an arm toward them. Alisha’s screamed, warning her friends, but it was too late as dark magic burst out of his hand and surged at them.
Her head spun. Alisha felt her body hit the hard ground, but she could barely saw anything. Faintly, the sounds of glass shattering, wood creaking, and artes firing all around reaching her ears.
“Sorey…” Alisha mumbled, but suddenly, soothing magic like a healing spell twirled around her soul. Calm washed over her, and as the pain receded, relief flood over her senses. A small figure, the same Normin from before, loomed into view above her, staring down at her with a worried gaze.
“Miss Alisha! We need to go!”
If you remember Alternative Berseria The X’s begining chapters, they were in a horrible state. Fortunately, Soulakai, one of my friends managed to release them throughout these months and the first 12 chapters have been ‘remastered’. Thanks to him, everyone can enjoy it more than before (A reminder is that the edits will continue till chapter 24 with chapter 14 and 15 going through a full rewrite process). Good news is he is offering his service and experience for anyone who is interested in a professional proofreading and beta reading:
Velvet has won the duel against Eleanor Hume and secured Laphicet a safe vessel. But what happens when she has to duel her own emotions?
“Fly me to the moon”
“Let me play among the stars…”
Yes, this song stuck in my head. Although it is more appropriate for the next project, but it also works in this one too.
Really liked the new version that I have done. Have a read of the remastered part :)
“No… No! Shut up! To hell with you! I won’t listen to any of your disgusting words!”
Avernus pounced from his seat and scrambled into Velvet’s room. He watched Velvet strangling Laphicet as the boy was choking to his death.
Avernus’ shout pulled Velvet from her dream and released Laphicet as the boy stumbled to his back.
She glanced horrifyingly at Laphicet’s contorted face, “What?… Why?"
Avernus raced and picked up Laphicet, patting his chest, "Breath, kid. Breath!”
Laphicet coughed hard, struggling to raise his head at Velvet, “You… You were shouting… You were having a nightmare!”
Velvet’s brow knotted and she barked, “Don’t get close to me like that! You know I’m a daemon, don’t you?!”
“I'm… sorry!”, Laphicet sobbed and quickly broke from Avernus’ embrace, dashing out of the room.
“I didn’t mean to do that.”, Velvet muttered, staring blankly into the door frame.
Avernus walked to her side as she leaned against the wall, gasping.
“I know what you need.”, Avernus whispered.
Velvet turned her head away from him, collecting her posture, "I’m okay. It’s nothing. Just leave me be.”
Suddenly, Avernus yanked her arm and firmly held it. Velvet tried to free herself, but it was futile.
She glared into his eyes. “What are you doing?! Let me go!”
Avernus gripped her arm firmly as she was powerless to do anything else.
“You could’ve freed yourself from a normal human like me. But you can’t, and that’s not a good sign.”
Out of stamina, Velvet abruptly stumbled into his embrace. “I’m so hungry…”, she whispered pleadingly.
Avernus released her hand and hugged her gently. “I know…” He pulled himself away and took off his coat. Then, he opened his shirt. Velvet scowled in shock and confusion. “W-What the hell are you doing!?”
Avernus threw his shirt and strengthened his shoulders. His muscles shone under the moonlight. “This may not substitute a full meal, but it is going to be a temporary snack until we can find a daemon or malakhim for you to eat.”
“No…”, Velvet shook her head slowly from left to right, stepping back.
“I’m not a good cook. You made me some pretty good meals. So now let me return the favor.”
“No… No… I won’t do it!”
“I’m not asking you to eat me. Just have some of my blood. It will be enough to buy us some time.”
She frowned and dashed towards the door, but Avernus quickly grabbed her arm, pulling her back to himself even closer. His body heat somehow tingled her dampened nerves on her skin.
"Listen to me, Velvet! In your condition, you’re powerless against exorcists and daemons! How can you hope to continue fighting?! Have you learned nothing?!”
For the first time, Velvet heard his harsh tone. Like a scolding teacher, reprimanding his student.
Avernus pulled her bandaged hand and placed it over his back.
"Small bite should do it.” Avernus picked a clean cloth from his pocket and folded it, placing it between his teeth and biting it.
However, Velvet lowered her head, still resisting the temptation to harvest his blood. Her eyes disappeared beneath her silky hair. Avernus shook his head and muffled something unintelligible into the cloth in his mouth. The sigil on his wrist crept over his skin like a living tattoo, and slithered to his back. It rotated and scratched his skin above where Velvet’s therion arm was resting.
Blood trickled onto the bandages, and was absorbed instantly underneath them as the therion part of her slurped them all. Suddenly, Velvet tasted his blood and her eyes flared up, burning in a hot flame and breath escaped her lungs, gasping at its heavenly flavor. Her therion arm tore through the bandages and drilled its fangs into his flesh and skin.
Avernus stumbled forward into her embrace and clenched his teeth over the cloth in unbearable pain.
The taste of ‘Avernus’ was unbelievably… delicious . Velvet embraced him tentatively. She pushed and felt only tasty soft, tender flesh under her arm’s fangs. Velvet locked her legs over his waist and pressed her body against him with enough force to make them both fall. She was delirious with joy, in a blissful fantasy as she sated her hunger with a tasteful snack. Velvet went for his neck and dug her teeth into his vein in a sucking motion. It was just a reflex to a suppressed feeling. A song of triumph and satisfaction rose within her, and Velvet moaned in pleasure.
But, for Avernus… it was Death revisited. The void had yawned and was absorbing his soul in excruciating pain. It was the worst way to go and he was helpless to stop it. His consciousness flickered away like a fading candle as the darkness enfolded him into her infinite embrace.
Happy Berseria 4th anniversary! The cover for Lady Calamity’s Alternative Delights has been done!
From now on, I have decided to always include something of Avernus with Velvet’s solo pictures. There are a few occurrences of my arts posted somewhere else without permission (I would never permit reposts) and even presenting the first few arts of VelvetxAvernus as VelvetxSorey. So, sorry, especially canon purists, No more only-Velvet arts from me.
Bringing ‘Lady Calamity’s Alternative Delights’ to Wattpad and here is a sneak peek from the book cover. Probably going to try new things too.
Manga update (1)
When’s this bonus chapter?
Next week. I hope so though.
The princess Alisha is about to receive some fascinating facts about her lineage. Waiting for Shepherd Sorey and her friends to come back to Hyland, the Pendragon castle suddenly comes under attack by dark forces. Alisha’s life hangs in the balance as she fights against chaos made flesh Basmu, who’s determined to devour her soul and see her efforts for peace between the kingdoms fail.
In the long past, Avernus is about to make his life’s important decision that will affect the world for the next thousand years and beyond; The proposal to Velvet Crowe. Witness the beginning of Era of Maotelus and how the timelines intertwine in ~ Sure Promise ~
The picture is data-mined from Tales of Crestoria, so I doubt you see that before.
Finally decided to released some songs with direct ties to the plot of the story. Consider these OSTs of Alternative Berseria The X. Enjoy!
You did ask for our opinion so why not give it a go on altbesx2 and see how it does ?
That’s right. However, on fanfiction websites, a good number of people that comment, want to see the story move on to the Zestiria timeline and they’re pretty vocal about. I’m going to release a bonus chapter and ask directly at the end to come and vote if they haven’t which I’m mostly sure they didn’t.
Okay, more people voted for ABX 2. Seriously? I was writing Zestiria’s bonus chapter for ABX and the results shocked me. I think I’m going to wait and reblog/retweet it again.
Remember Velvet’s custom that was based on Rutee? Do you think Stahn’s outfit would look good on Avernus? (The more I see, the more I think Avernus was really needed for Velvet, hahaha)
A Writer’s Journal (ALtBersX) - Part 1: Myths and Legends (Innominat and Tiamat) (on Wattpad) https://my.w.tt/NFNHkBESE8 These are the collection of my research and my ideas behind Alternative Berseria The X. In addition to acting as a small Wikipedia about original characters of ABX, so spoilers if you haven’t read the story. Table of Contents: 1. Myths and Legends (Innominat and Tiamat) 2. Myths and Legends (Dragon of the Hyland and Wolf of the Midgand) 3. Personal opinions and Q&As. 4. Plotholes of Tales of Berseria and Tales of Zestiria
My 250th platinum trophy. Hit this milestone around 2 years late. My spare time was mostly focused on AltBerseria and Destiny 2. Feels good to be a completionist again.
Okay, I need to talk about a few factors about AltZestiriaX and AltBerseriaX2 before you make your final decision about your vote. I’ll try my best not to spoil the plots.
I’m sorry if you’re going to be triggered by them, but it’s better to be clear first.
1. There will be absolutely no Alisha x Rose. I’m going to be frank: I hate Rose. I can remove her existence from the story and it will not matter one bit. But she will be in there and I try not to undermine her role if AltZest happens.
2. It will be much shorter than AltBerseriaX.
3. You will see mostly a new story (Even more changed than what AltBers was to ToB) and the starting point is also different than the game.
4. I want to put the characters through events that can contribute to their growth, which means you’ll see more character development.
5. Romance… No comment. The only thing is no Alisha x Rose. But if there is going to be romance, it will be a minor subplot. Velvet x Avernus was different and directly tied to the future of the story. Besides, I liked writing for Velvet. Here, it is different. But there will be a lot of friendship banters and bonds to improve so don’t fret.
6. Amount of OCs will be minimum to none.
7. The main story will revolve around Alisha. Everyone is in it, it is just the main heroine will be her.
I don’t think you need introduction and you’ll know who are going to be in it, so, yup. The thing you’re thinking about is true.
When should we expect your next to be released?
I’m still deciding based on feedback and popularity. There are outlines already written, but I have to know Zestiria fandom before moving into AltZest. Or write AltBersX 2 instead. If you or anybody have a preference, you can express itwhich one you’d likely to see next in the next poll.
“…No matter how deep the despair, hope is always born out of it. You are light. Use even sadness as power, and shine the way."
Are you going to write about how alisha is the OC descendant or velvet’s descendant?
Yes. I will.
GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam
Did a quick build of one of my favorite mobile suits.
Say after your done alternate x main story, what would use as the next major story?
Maybe a continuation of Velvet’s story with Berseria cast and dial the rating to Mature, or I would resume my original story rather than doing a fanfiction. For Alternative Zestiria The X, I’m still not sure.
Omg your art is so pretty!! Read the first two chapters and I’m already hooked, can’t wait to binge the rest of your wonderful story!!!
Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it!
Morgana Woods, Aball - (REDACTED) later
Mist swirled and pooled around Rokurou’s feet as he stalked between trees, his hand hanging near his sword. “Come on, you big ugly bastard, I know you’re out here…”
He paused to listen, head moving to follow the faint, wet sounds of crunching and tearing emanating from behind a nearby log. His demonic eye flared up. Creeping forward on silent feet, Rokurou slowly leaned around a tree trunk to steal a glimpse of his prey. But sounds of battle cries and howling echoed around the forest. Rokurou lunged out from behind the tree. His eyes widened. “Huh? Velvet?”
Velvet, wearing her crimson pirate clothes, looked up at him innocently, yanking her wrist blade out of a Lycan’s skull. “Rokurou? Fancy meeting you here.”
Rokurou groaned. “Wow, don’t you get cute with me, I’ve been stalking him for days!”
From behind the bushes, Orthie and Russ jumped and moved protectively to Velvet. “Didn’t see your name on it, and it’s not my fault if you’re getting slow in your age, Rokurou.”
Rokurou sighed, crossing his arms. “Forget it. What are you even doing here? I thought you were on the sea, and you know it’s the time for…” He paused for a moment and scratched his head in guilt. “I’m sorry, I don’t know if I should bring it up.”
Velvet nodded. “It’s okay. We were on our way to Loegres, and Eizen wanted to pick up Edna. So, I thought I would check on Aball.”
“Aball? So Tabatha still wants to convert it into a hideout?”
“She does, but I’m still not sure if it’s better to hand it to Bloodwings, or I should keep it for myself and make my own base.” Velvet said. “The soil fertility is improving, and it would make for a perfect sanctuary for the crew’s families. Say, why don’t you join us. I think everyone would love to see you back, even if it is for a few days.”
Rokurou sighed and shook his head. “No, I don’t think Eizen would approve the presence of a bloodthirsty daemon when Edna is around.”
“Eizen said Phoenix’s domain is getting stronger, and Laphicet is around, so you’re harmless.” Velvet said, smirking impishly.
“Harmless, huh? Not sure it’s true about me, but when you put it that way, I think I can spare a day or two.”
Velvet gave him a nod, and along with the dogs, they traveled back to Van Eltia.
As they arrived at the Taliesin’s port, Benwick rushed at hem and saluted. “Ma’am!”
The ship is loaded with supplies, and Ms. Hume says that Eizen and Edna are already onboard.”
“Right, call everyone back to the ship. We’re leaving at noon.” Velvet ordered, and they embarked on Van Eltia.
“It’s a long time since I set foot in this ship…” Rokurou said, stepping on the ship’s deck. Suddenly, he heard a familiar chuckle.
“I thought I heard the sounds of inadequacy coming from somewhere,” Eizen smirked.
Rokurou darted a brow up. “Oho! I see you’re getting bold, old man. How about a…”
“No settling differences or no friendly wager on this ship!” Velvet yelled. “Got it?”
Rokurou raised his hands in surrender. “Okay, alright… Sheesh, Velvet, I don’t recall the crew said anything about Aifread being this strict. Am I right, Eizen?”
“Velvet’s the captain now, and the crew is pretty content with her way of leadership,” Eizen said.
Then an apple hit Rokurou’s head out of nowhere, landing and rolling over the deck. “Ouch! What the hell?”
He raised his head to see Magilou, sitting on the topmast, shrugging her shoulders and eyes sparkling with mischief. “Didn’t see you there, big boy.”
“Why’s everyone picking on me today?” Rokurou moaned, massaging his scalpel.
“It’s because they missed you.” Velvet said, chuckling in amusement.
Rokurou groaned. “Ah, my life’s been busy lately. Eleanor has a lot of daemon clearing quest to do, and I can’t complain.”
Eleanor emerged from the crew quarters, squinting up into the sunlight. She caught sight of Velvet and Rokurou, face beaming with delight as she rushed over. “Hey! Rokurou! Did you finish the final request?”
Velvet frowned slightly at Eleanor. “Come on, give him a break. Life’s not all about work.”
Eleanor raised a scolding finger, cocking her head. “There is no rest for the protectors. We must stand vigil during these rough times!”
Magilou chuckled at Eleanor’s reaction and jumped down. “Rokurou as a protector?” She sneered. “This man does not think about anyone other than himself.”
Rokurou cracked a prideful smile. “Protector or not, I get to fight, and she even pays me for it.”
“Still in it for yourself, eh?” Magilou said.
The swordsman straightened his broad shoulders. “Yes. I’m the same old Rokurou Rangetsu, you all know.”
Benwick and the rest of the crew came aboard “All finished, Ma’am!”
“Good. Set sail for Loegres immediately.” Giving orders to Benwick, Velvet headed out to the crew quarters. She entered the kitchen and caught a glimpse of Lailah wearing an apron. The fire malak hummed cheerfully, and she delicately lifted a small, rimmed bottle from the top shelf. Behind her, Velvet walked over to lean on the counter beside Lailah. For a while, Velvet watched as the oblivious Lailah struggled to uncork the tiny bottle.
“Do you need help, Lailah?”
Lailah jumped, nearly dropping the bottle on the floor. She quickly fumbled it onto the counter and took a step back.
“Oh hi, Velvet-san! I didn’t think you’d be back this early!” Lailah said nervously.
Velvet smiled softly. “What are you doing here? Trying to usurp my position?”
Will you make an art with OC/velvet for the epilogue?
Maybe. But not now. I’ll be pretty busy in the coming weeks, and my priorities would be to wrap up the story for now.
Chapter 44 has been released. A warning though, it’s about 23K+ words.
I’ve finally managed to tell my story. The Epilogue remains, but the climax is over. It’s been a great journey writing something fresh for Berseria/Talesof universe. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did writing it.
The story will have a definitive ending, but continuation depends on the feedback I get from you, so, don’t be afraid and speak your mind about it in the review sections.
