Chapter 58: Bright Side

On the not-so-bright side, broken promise not to end on a cliffhanger!

It's actually because I decided to split the chapter before it got to the part I was really looking forward to writing. It was just getting too long for any emotional coherence, which is one of the biggest reasons I was struggling to finish it for so long, too. (That, and all the streaming parties my friends and I have been having lately...)

That's pretty much all for now! Now to start sorting through all of my dA messages. Oh boy.

You know, I was doing some research for a class I'm in right now, and I found something that vaguely reminds me of a certain villain from your story. I don't know if you've ever heard of it, or if you even read this kind of stuff. In either case, whether you decide to read/delete this, my comment needs no reply. I just thought it might inspire you.

The Story of Pounamu The Sacred Stone of Aotearoa

Long ago, when there were different stars in the heavens, the ancestors sailed the oceans seeking the stone of the Gods. When they came to the shores of Aotearoa, to the Arahura river, they found a stone born of the stars, and held it close to heal the people and the land. They called it Pounamu. Pounamu is of the jade family. It is a superb jewellery stone, one that also served the ancestors when they needed sharp, fine edged tools. And for more than a thousand years the trail walkers of the Waitaha nation moved this precious stone over the high passes of the Southern Alps on the peace trail. There it gained its mana, a wonderful birthright of spiritual power. Then it was carried by the great double-hulled waka to all parts of the land, and the old homelands of the Pacific Rim. Name your stone for it is your companion on the trails of life. In accord with ancient lore it is usually gifted, its enduring power is being given with love. It is a stone of the wairua, the world of the spirit realm that surrounds all.

Hey scytherider!  How is life treating you?  I'm really missing those amazing silver resistance chapters, but I'll wait patiently for you to get back well rested.  I hope everything's going alright on your side!!

We haven't heard any updates from you in almost two months.  How have things been on your end?

Hey Scythe!  What have you been up to?

  I finally finished chapter 3 if you're interested, and I'm planning on doing another fan art of your story sometime soon.

Hey Scythe! May I, umm... sort of... borrow a character or two from you? I just want to write a short story (2-shot) and I'm lacking some characters to use. I just started an account on DA and I don't quite know how things here worked xD (hint: characters i'm borrowing are from your Eon-fable :3)

Oh, really? What do you have in mind?

Just so you know, I'm using Dandelion (and probably Jasmine too) and uhh, well, just trying to discover their unique personalities and at the same time, introducing a bit about myself (as an O.C). Part 1 is done, and I decided to extend the story to 4 parts, each not that long since I don't have much free time to spare.

P.S Scythe you inspired me to start up my own dA account and try to write since my writing skills are not so good and I wanted to learn from you through your SR chapters, the way you use your words and I can understand that how much practice it takes to just write a good story. I'm really impressed at how you could write your story and manipulate words so well. Honestly? I'm just fan-boying right now xDDD

I was also hoping that you could correct my vocab, grammar, etc. Anyways, Catch ya later!

Hey ScytheRider!
How have you been?  I'm not sure whether I told you that I got a new account, but I'll let you know that before I was :iconpaintingeevee:

I just thought you might be interested in reading Chapter 2 of my story, since I'm in the middle of Chapter 3.

Anyway, thanks for all of the tips on editing my writing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
