“Look at my eyes, Faye. One of them is a fake because I lost it in an accident. Since then, I’ve been seeing the past in one eye and the present in the other. So, I thought I could only see patches of reality, never the whole picture.
I felt like I was watching a dream I could never wake up from. Before I knew it, the dream was all over.”
Lady Faye began as a squire from House Albrand in the midst of the Nohrian Civil War, a bloody conflict between the last heirs to the Nohrian throne. The noble house was split in two, one siding with the abominable Lord Oswald, and the other siding with the young brothers King Hugo and Prince Garon. Faye was still young when she escorted Lady Katerina around Nohr, but she proved her mettle in the final battle as vanguard. She was made a knight and royal retainer to the royal family alongside her colleague Sir Zhara, who went on to serve Princess Diantha.
As retainer to the crown prince, Lady Faye served as Xander’s primary swordplay instructor once he decided to follow the path of the blade. Known for her raucous laughter that echoed in the halls of Krakenburg, the knight loved to tease the young prince but dispensed good advice, even though Xander didn’t always appreciate her words. Despite her great affinity with the fellow knights of the order, Lady Faye swore to never marry and was well known for spurning the advances of many men who wished for her hand in marriage.
Sir Lockie of Albrand, the son of Violeta of Albrand and Sir Gunther, was chosen to serve his cousin, the crown prince, from the very moment he was born.
Xander regarded Lockie as one of his closest confidants, third only to Princess Diantha and Prince Marius. Quiet and thoughtful in his early days, Lockie made quick friends with the crown prince, and they often spent long nights together in the family libraries to read their favorite books together.
Lockie greatly admired the many warriors and knights in his family, but he simply could not stand blood so much that he fainted at the sight of it when he was young. His struggle had not gone unnoticed by his cousins and Lady Faye, who all helped him over come his fear. He later reaffirmed his position as Xander’s right hand and retainer when he won the family tournament in a display of honor and good restraint. Many likened Lockie to his father, Sir Gunter, and expected that he would follow the same noble path, but fate made it not so.
In the second wave of the Nohr-Hoshido conflict, a strategic error left the crown prince stranded without reinforcements against Hoshidan soldiers. Lady Faye and Sir Lockie fought with their lives to protect their crown prince and help him escape the overwhelming number of enemies. Distraught by the loss, Prince Xander relented in his assault on Hoshidan lands and agreed to an armistice with the High Prince of Hoshido. He grieved for two years afterwards and could not bring himself to hire new retainers until his siblings raised concerns about his health.
Today, a new pair of retainers walk beside the crown prince. But the memory of waking up on Lockie’s abandoned horse still burns in his memory. His fallen retainers were give a hero’s funeral, and their names are enshrined in the many plaques that line the Garden of Champions.
Oh, Faye. When she first appeared on Alm’s cipher card, in the background, many people were pleased, but skeptical; While it was great that the idea of having more girls in Shadows Of Valentia (especially in a cast as short in women as fe2′s), many thought that her characterization wouldn’t be that great, and that she would be reduced to another female character with less personality than a piece of cardboard (at most, she would be another childhood friend stereotype). I myself got hopeful due to loving her design to death, and I thought that maybe, just maybe, she would become a very fun character.
…Well, at least she still has a very cute design. Let’s try to make her better, shall we?
Asks sent to my main, answered here, regarding students who are stolen away, what happens to them, what replaces them, and what happens to their replacements
said: what about changelings attending elsewhere university? like changelings
that always knew they were fae but never interacted with their kind before?
what about changelings “betraying” their heritage and siding with the
humans on campus?
It’s generally silently expected among
the Fair Folk that if it ever came to open warfare, changelings would be loyal
to the courts rather than the University. It hasn’t ever gone quite that far,
but nevertheless there have absolutely been times when changelings stood by
their human friends and siblings in open opposition to other members of the
Gentry. Most of the time this isn’t viewed as betrayal; beyond court dealings they
tend to be extremely individual, and clashing with another one of the Fair Folk
isn’t terribly unusual. When one of the courts is involved, however, things
tend to go poorly for the defiant party.
enderblogs-17 said: Hey, I just finished reading your
“Elsewhere University,” and honestly, so many questions. First, does
a person know they’ve been taken? Can they bring themself back? Do they
remember anything when they’ve returned? How do you know something is done by
the gentry (I think that’s what you called them) and not by humans? Do they
exist in other regions? I’m so curious and fascinated, but please, if this
crosses any lines, don’t publish. I don’t want to get you in trouble with the
Hahaha I appreciate
the consideration! Okay - generally you would know if you were taken, yeah –
you’ve gone from your dorm room to a candlelit underground hall full of
blooming cherry trees, or something else equally Not Dorm. If something stole
you away because it’s infatuated with you, you’d likely be doted on for at
least a short while. If you were stolen away because something hated you,
you’re probably somewhere less nice.
possible to bring yourself home – you could appeal to the one who stole you in
the first place; if they think they love you it’s sometimes possible to convince
them to free you again. You could buy your way to freedom, with whatever gifts
and items you have on you; you could win it in a game of skill. If you are
lucky enough to be beloved of the crows, they will lead you home. If you are
brave and clever and know enough of the rules to navigate the Elsewhere, you
could escape on your own. If none of these work, someone will come looking for
you eventually – your lover, your friend, your sibling, your RA.
Unless they have
explicitly given up their memories, then they would remember their time in
Elsewhere for as long as they are on campus. Once off campus the memories fade
quicker than they should (although the more Involved you were, the more you
hold on to, and there are other ways to remember).
I think in general it
would likely be hard to know if small weirdnessness had been committed by the
Gentry or by students. It’s a college, after all. The whole premise of the
comic was that there is so much weird
shit that it’s already difficult to tell.
They do exist in
other regions – Elsewhere U isn’t the only place where the Elsewhere meshes through.
Most of the other places are schools as well, but not always, and the nature of
the Gentry tends to vary depending on each region’s folkloric bones.
Let’s say Spike survived. Would he ever go back to the Bebop? If not, would you dare think they’d never meet again? Would he snoop, here and there, to make sure they’re okay, but avoid them all? Avoid her? If Faye saw him again, alive, without a word in months, maybe years, would she shoot him? Kiss him?
Hi there! :) Today I want to write about adopted kids. I guess you all know that Faye, our older daughter, is adopted child (and I think there is not a big deal to see that she does’t looks like me or her dad). Faye is half chinese and half korean girl. I don’t know much about her biological parents, but all we know that she had lived with her father till 1 year old, then he died and she was taken to St Claire’s local orphanage. We saw her at the fisrt time when she was 1 year and 3 months, she was so lonely and blue. When I saw her something has changed in me and I felt like I already knew this little girl before. Maybe it was so ( in the past life).
The day when Faye finally became ours was the second happiest day in my life(after Elio’s birth). She was shy and insecure when she fisrt arrived to her new home, but she quickly adapted to her new life and family. It wasn’t fast when Faye started calling me ‘mom’ (before that she just approached me without calling me by name just raising her hands to ask something).
I felt a little lost from the realization of the new status of my mother twice. Foster mother. I did not know how to treat a child, how to call her except as Faye (for me calling her “daughter” was also not fast), how to feed her (since Elio was too young at that time and ate only my milk), what to play , how to properly raise her and identify her abilities and inclinations. Of course, I was preparing for a new child in the family before Faye began to live with us, I bought books about children phyhology, raising adopted kids and etc (although I already had some before), bought a lot of new toys (dolls mainly and other girly toys), clothes , dresses (oh these dresses!) and other necessary things. But when Faye finally moved to us, I supposedly forgot everything I was preparing for and did not know how to act in this or that situation.
I began to understand the new course of things not immediately and did not immediately join the new rhythm of life. But gradually the day after day the border between me and the adopted daughter decreased and soon we were able to call each other mom and daughter, communicating more closely than ever, just as the mother and child communicate with each other.
Of course, at the very beginning, I was worried about whether we would be able to accept her into our family, whether she would be able to accept us as parents, what her relationship with Elio would be and so on. I was afraid that I couldn’t get along with her under one roof and would never become her mother. Thank God everything turned out and now I absolutely can say that we are a real family and I no longer imagine life without my baby girl. We are happy together. I’m glad that I took this important step for all of us. Of course, growing up Faye will understand that we are not the people that gave her life, but I hope that we will be for her the only parents, the most dear to her people, the most important people in life. Maybe in the future she will want to find her biological mother, get acquainted with her … Of course, we will not impede this, as this is her choice, but even if this happens, I want to remain her only mother and I’m sure I will.
If you have adopted child\children how did you found contact and what has changed in your life since her\his appearance? Write down below the comments I want to hear your story :)
Patiently hoping for supports so I can fulfill the wrong side of a love triangle.
Really though, I am curious to see exactly how they’re handling Alm’s relationship with Faye. I don’t have to wonder about Alm and the three guys so much, but who knows what direction they’re taking Alm-Faye in (besides some kind of romance on Faye’s side). I’m hoping subtle (and less romance-centric than what I drew haha), but… we’ll see.
I’m excited for Faye anyways. Now we can bump up the non-magical, non-peg knight reps up to two, I think? Was Matilda the only other one? Idk, but I’m making Faye a cav whenever I pick up the game, and she’s going to be adorable.
Faye Valentine is literally the most tragic character of Cowboy Bebop. She’s stuck with the debts of a conman. She’s so bitter and discovers via an old Betamax tape that she was this optimistic starry eyed little girl who was so excited to grow up. She became this selfish angry jaded person but after seeing that tape she becomes obsessed with finding that place because she thinks if she does she’ll find her home her happiness and who she was. She’ll finally belong which is something she has been longing for since she woke up in the future. She finds this place and it’s been wiped off the planet. All of it is completely gone and she’s left with nothing. No answers. And to top it all off she loses the man she loves. Neither of them say I love you to each other but Faye all but expresses it in her and Spike’s final scene together. She couldn’t get the man she loves to stay. To let the past go and choose a future with her. She loves Spike. He’s the only man she’s ever truly loved and she loses him. She loses everything. And it’s so incredibly sad. I love Faye Valentine. She is one of the greatest female characters in the history of anime, and she makes me feel so much my heart just breaks for her.
Under the cut you will find 300+ HQ small TEXTLESS gifs of Phoebe Tonkin in the role of Faye Chamberlain. All these gifs were made by me and I will periodically be updating this gif hunt as I make more. Please like, reblog or message me if you use these gifs, or add them to your own gif hunt. :} Enjoy role playing with this beauty!
