And last but not least we have Avdol’s theme. Another great work by TOMMY, representing so well Avdol’s character.
If you can see these flames, I shall tell you There is nothing to fear, it’s all part of destiny
‘Magician’s Red’ Burning Justice!
Forget about what you lost Just take back your lost pride
‘Magician’s Red’ Crimson Hurricane
HELL 2 U! Don’t get too hot A calm flame has no place in the scorching heat We’ll definitely reach our destination Our journey ends with your scream I’ll get you back, for sure!
The nightmare I saw that day, the fear that invites me closer Next time I won’t run away, we’ll fight together *¹
‘Magician’s Red’ Crimson Bind
In order to advance, this is the best promise To the men that fight, I give the Ankh’s blessing

YES, I AM! Aren’t you 10 years early? *² Experience guides my prophecies If I were to fall… …just keep going forward *³ This is the noble way of life
HELL 2 U! Don’t get too hot A calm flame has no place in the scorching heat We’ll definitely reach our destination Our journey ends with your scream I’ll get you back, for sure! CROSS FIRE HURRICANE!
*¹: This of course refers to when Avdol met Dio in Egypt. *²: Avdol says this to Polnareff when they are fighting (”You’re 10 years early to fight me, a fortune teller, with your predictions”). *³: Again, the words he says to Polnareff when they’re about to venture into Dio’s mansion.
it’s pretty neat when you turn on japanese voices for FE:Awakening bc you get to hear these people!! One of M!Robin’s voice is old Joseph from Jojo’s Venture (and F!Robin is Jolyne’s!). Validar is Dio’s…..
FIRE SIGNS are comets, aphelions diverging out of orbit like lightning quick arrows, as sharp as the licks of their own flames | Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
EARTH SIGNS are steady, magnetic planets, gathering in intricate systems around suns; they raise their own life and keep outsiders out by their own cautious atmospheres | Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
AIR SIGNS are the aftermath of supernovas, clouds of beauty and color and shimmering gas; a spectacle to witness and adore | Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
WATER SIGNS are peaceful moons, often half hidden away, both dark and light; they have the power to shift tides and are capable of even eclipsing the sun with their own beauty | Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful.
Our hearts break as we say to another fantastic actor and musician.. Who gave us great entertainment, great joy, and so many great pieces to watch until the end of time. We will never stop watching his films, listening to his music that he left for us.. and the great amount of laughter, clever humor and tears along with all of that.
I did it! I updated! I won’t put the links in this post, because for some reason tumblr is fucking with writers and artists and generally being a little shit, but here’s chapter four!
Again, please review and comment and tell me what you’re thinking! I love hearing from you guys. This chap is over 5K, but initially it was going to have waaaayyy more, so hopefully I can get the next one out sooner rather than later.
A crowd of eager onlookers gathered around Lucy as she
pulled out the golden key and held it out, ready to summon Leo again. She felt
her magic swirling within her, and knew she could handle summoning the spirit,
at least for a little bit. Hopefully, he would remove the block on her memory
everyone, take a few steps back, give the girl some room,” Gray said, pushing
back the mages as he sent Lucy a wink. Lucy rolled her eyes. She’d met him
earlier that morning, when she was eating a piece of toast for her breakfast.
He’d introduced himself and then promptly threw his shirt off, continuing as if
nothing was wrong and caused Lucy to choke on the warm bread in her mouth.
Luckily, Erza was around and she wacked Gray upside the head and told him to
stop stripping with a dark glare.
“He has a
stripping habit, says it was a part of his training but I think he’s just a
pervert,” Natsu had whispered in her ear. Lucy shrieked and hit him in the face.
She yelled at him for appearing out of nowhere and demanded that he never
surprise her like that again. Gray laughed at the stunned expression on the
drakon’s face, then the two started to brawl until Erza broke them apart. From
what Lucy could tell, the trio had their routine of the boys fighting and
arguing for no good reason and Erza threatening them into submission. Lucy would
never admit it aloud, for fear of Erza’s wrath, but she thought their
interactions were adorable.
Gate of the Lion, Leo!” Lucy yelled, pulling at her magic. There was a flash of
light, then Leo was once again standing before her, his head bowed. Lucy heard
the excited whispers from those watching and her cheeks flushed. Was her magic
really that strange? Given the fact that magic was real, she assumed summoning
someone out of nowhere was no big deal. Apparently, she was wrong.
to see you again,” Leo said, pulling her into another hug. Lucy pushed him away
and kept him at arm’s length.
you would explain?” She asked him. Leo nodded, pulling Lucy away from the ears
of those around her. He glanced nervously at the guild hall and Lucy briefly wondered what the spirit could be
so much I need to tell you, but first we need to take care of that curse. Once
you have your memories back, it’ll be much easier to explain everything. I
should be able to break it myself,” He answered. Lucy felt him tense as another
arm landed across Lucy’s shoulders. She felt his strangely intense body heat
warming her side, and Lucy bit back a scream.
what’re we talking about?” Natsu asked with feigned innocence. Smoke curled
from his lips and Lucy shrugged his arm off. He stuck close to her side,
however, and she glared over at him, cursing his lack of personal space. “Natsu,
Leo was talking to me.”
got that part, I’m just wondering what he wanted to say,” Natsu said
nonchalantly, as though he wasn’t invading her privacy. Luckily, Erza stalked
over and grabbed the back of Natsu’s shirt, dragging the protesting drakon
away, lecturing him about minding his own business as she went.
Erza! I was listening to what the cat bastard was sayin’ to Luce!” He yelled,
trying, and failing, to work free of the fierce woman’s grasp. Erza whispered
something in his ear, and his normally golden skin went white and his limbs
slacked as the fight left his body.
“Man, I knew
Valkyrie’s were scary but she’s on another level,” Leo chuckled as he watched
Erza drag Natsu’s limp body away. Lucy turned to the spirit, her brow raised.
She crossed her arms expectantly and waited for him to explain. The affection she
felt stirring in her chest at the sight of the spirit confused her even more
than the strange magic powers she now possessed.
back to the explanation,” Leo coughed, he cracked his knuckles and placed his
thumbs on Lucy’s temple and closed his eyes in focus, “I’m going to draw on
your magic, and it won’t be pleasant but this is the only way I know of to
break this curse. It won’t be pleasant, but I have to do this first because it
will help explain everything.”
clenched her fists in preparation for the weakness she knew she would feel when
he finished. She decided not to question his actions, partly due to the trust
she had in him, and the other half from her curiosity about her past. She felt
Leo pulling her strength into him and heard him mutter a phrase in a language
she couldn’t understand. He repeated the phrase, and her magic started to thrum
within her chest as her veins glowed under her skin. She could vaguely hear
Natsu’s voice calling her name, but all her senses went numb as she was tossed
into the depths of her memories with a choked gasp.
you are made of starlight my love
you crashed and splintered and shattered
but that didn’t diminish your majesty
it didn't destroy your power
if anything it made you stronger, it turned you into an echo
and your starlight is well matched with his fire
the burning warmth, the warrior’s inferno
the heat of loss leaving marks on his soul
yet the flame in his heart persists
making his every action governed by the fire within
the devotion between the two of you far outstrips desire
empires rise and fall in the time it takes for the two of you to fall
yet the stars will create constellations in your honor
for the world was created in starlight and fire
