jade and saphir

“Hold still. It will never be right if you keep wiggling everywhere.”

Normally, Jade was not one to fuss too much over how well others kept up their appearances. It was none of his concern, after all. However, if Saphir was going to attempt looking nice for an evening, there was no sense in letting him ruin it with something so simple as a crooked tie.

Before there could be any protest, Jade’s hands were at Saphir’s neck, swiftly adjusting the strip of cloth into a fresh knot. He paused a moment, leaning back slightly to make certain it was straight, before pushing the knot upward, tightening the tie. Perhaps a little too tight.

Withdrawing his hands again, he briefly seemed to look Saphir over again; distracted enough to brush a bit of hair from in front of his glasses before he could catch himself. He did, however, once it was tucked behind an ear, and wasted no time in removing his hands once more.

“There. Maybe now someone might be fooled into taking you seriously.”

Here it is, the colored version of my Peridot-Garnet prediction fusion: Zoisite. I know she looks like a two gem fusion, but she has more eyes under those shades OuO

I’d love to see if anyone else would like to variate on this, make her a different color scheme/ gem (with the same initial design), I’ll post it here if u want.

“I hear you’ve been fighting?”

Nebilim asked the question as they stood in front of the dresser in the hallway that connected the classroom with her own room further in.

“Is that so.”

Jade, standing beside Saphir, answered as though it was the first time he’d heard of the news.

“Don’t play innocent! Jade, you were being mean!”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Now, now… Here, if you both stand together like this, you both look like good friends, right?“

Nebilim put an arm around each of the quarreling boys one by one, and turned to look into the dresser mirror.

“Ahh, that’s right! Me and Jade and the Professor are!”

On Jade and Dist's Relationship

Today, I wish to offer a perspective rooted in canon regarding Jade and Dist’s ever-changing relationship. Are they friends? Are they enemies? What canon says may come as a surprise to some people.

This essay will be divided into the following parts:

  • The Early Years: Childhood Friends
  • Working Towards a Common Goal: Colleagues
  • Into the Abyss: Enemies
  • Conclusion: Hope for the Future

Over the course of this write-up, I will be quoting the following canon sources:

  • 3DS Tales of the Abyss Complete Guide
  • Tales of the Abyss Character Episode Bible, particularly Short Story of Jade and Short Story of Dist
  • Shiro no Ashita: Jade Balfour

And once more, here we go again.

Do you wanna test some fonons
Do you wanna test some fonons

Jade?

(Knocking)

Do you wanna test some fonons

Let me just show you what I made

I never see you out of school

I’m not a fool

Stop pushing me away

I wish we could be buddies

the two of us

and Nephry but not that boy

Do you wanna test some fonons?

Long as it’s not the Seventh fonon.

Jade:

Go away, Saphir.

Saphir:

Okay, bye.

(Knocking)

Do you wanna test some fonons?

Or make a replica or two?

I think fomicry tests are overdue

Know we can do it if

we work just me and you

(Hang in there, Professor!)

It’s not that gets lonely

They’re just jealous of me

Still I’d like you by my side

(It’s Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose)

(Knocking)

Jade,

Please, I know you think that

I am not even worth your time

To you I’m just a villain with a runny nose

One of your foes, one you would kill.

I want those days to come back

When it was just you and me

I’ll bring the Professor back

Then surely you’ll want to test some fonons.
