sword of light and shadow

This was our MTGinktober for “Sword,” starring Topan Freeblade and Swords of Light, Shadow, Fire, and/or Ice, in some combination!  She’s back on the farm on doctor’s orders to rest up from the last battle, though she can’t help but think about how she’d rather be back battling with her comrades…you know what they say, a freeblade is no good with free time.

FE16

Now this is one of those long and probably pointless posts but there’s a few thoughts I have been sprinkling with others in social media that I’d thought I would like to write up and see if I am just a crazy old bastard or someone who loves Archanea maybe a little too much. Probably both.

My dream FE16 is to be another Archanea saga. Now, you’re probably thinking that I am a biased piece of shit and that Archanea already has four freaking games. But hear me out:

  • Fe1 and Shadow Dragon have no support conversations. And New Mystery is lacking many supports between characters with Kris being the majority of interaction
  • Three of those four games are Japan exclusive
  • Two of those games came out probably before most of the fandom here was even ever born. WE only have simulators and fan translations
  • Marth and Co. were the first fire emblem game. They are the very face of the franchise and probably one of the lesser known (and less enjoyed) games out of the series. GBA remakes would be nice but there is more access to them and are already great games in themselves.
  • LORE. Heck there is so much missing lore and other character developments we just have to imply and assume (headcannons are fun but you know, concrete cannon material is nice too).

I get it, you’re sick of my precious little bean being shoved down our throats. I get it, you want a GBA remake. I get it, it’s been done over and over again and we’re running Arhcanea down. But also consider this:

[Eris Morn] I do not blame you, Shaxx. I never blamed you.

[Lord Shaxx] I ought to have done more.

[Eris Morn] No. Less, maybe. Perhaps if we had done less. Hated less…desired less.

[Lord Shaxx] How many dead? Thousands. I should have made Zavala listen.

[Eris Morn] Enough. It was our choice to follow her. My choice. Wei’s fall consumed her - just as her death consumed me. There is always a cycle. Wei Ning, dead upon Crota’s blade - that was what broke Eriana, you know; just as her death broke me. And Crota himself - shattered upon his own sword. 

[Lord Shaxx] All light casts a shadow.

[Eris Morn] Nothing has ever lived that cannot die.

[silence]

[Lord Shaxx] That is…the sword logic?

[Eris Morn] It is truth.

[Lord Shaxx] Toland’s truth.

[Eris Morn] His? No. The Universe’s.

[quiet laughter]

[silence]

[silence]

[Eris Morn] They are a nice metaphor, you know. Your swords.

[Lord Shaxx] Are they?

[Eris Morn] Mm. Re-forged in Light, as are we all. And born of something Dark. Given new purpose.

[silence]

[Lord Shaxx] I want nothing of Toland’s truth.

[Eris Morn] Want has very little to do with it. 

[Lord Shaxx] I shall will it, then: we will be the species to prove the adage wrong. The Collapse did not extinguish us; nor will the Hive; nor the Vex, nor the crawling Dark itself. We have been tempered, strengthened. We are the blades, Eris. We shall inscribe our will upon reality in all its facets. We shall become the very definition of Light, and nothing will dull our brilliance.

[silence]

[Eris Morn] Ah, my friend. Now you’re starting to understand.
