“Are you certain that wasn’t the real him? Wouldn’t want to make a mistake.”  –Ardyn


Ugh I absolutely fell in love with @chocobaes MT!Prompto AU if you haven’t already checked it out from them, please go do that right now. I hopped on that one way ticket to the pain and suffering angst so quick you don’t even know. I also made a normal Prompto since I just like seeing him pout :^)

Also please don’t remove the caption, edit, or repost; you can always ask me for permission. I’m nice. I promise. Thanks! 

-Best, Swan

A translation of the above JP script! It’s not that I doubt the english subs, but I figured that they don’t actually carry the weight of Prompto’s and Noctis’ words as in the original.

I’ve done my best to translate into what I think is a more accurate version of their conversation below.

N: Noctis   P: Prompto

P: What are you doing?

N: Not much. Just spacing out.

P: Hmm, I see.  -sighs-

-> Make small talk

N: A lot of things happened today huh?

P: Yeah that’s right! But everyday’s fun! Even if we almost get ourselves killed,  it’s fun.

P: I never imagined it would work out like this. Going on a journey with you guys.

N: Yeah, you’re right.

P: So how long have we been friends now? Since the beginning of high school. Hmm…. so that’s 5 years?

N: Yeah, but we knew each other way back before then. Since elementary school.

P: Eh? Why did you even remember that?

N: Could hardly forget being stared (gawked) at.

P: Haha… Well that… There’s a lot of reasons for it…

N: Even so, when we met in high school, you said “Hajimemashite” (a greeting for first meetings).

P: Ah that! It took me a lot of courage to say that!

P: -sighs- It’s somehow nostalgic.

N: You should have just greeted me normally.

P: It isn’t as easy as you say. Noct, I’m sure you won’t understand.

P: Back then, I was… Sorry! Actually, it’s nothing.

-> Urge him

N: What is it? I’m interested to know.

P: Haha, yeah I know.

P: Last time, I couldn’t talk to people. I had no friends, not any real ones anyway.

P: I was always alone. At times, I thought that I was just worthless.

-> Express interest

N: You’ve been thinking about that?

P: When everyone looks at the me now, they think I’m a fun loving person, or a happy go lucky joker.

P: They think I’m a complex person, but in truth it’s nothing close to that.

P: I always felt like I couldn’t catch up to you guys. I’m a commoner, and I’m not strong like everyone else.

P: I’m not good with people. Unlike Gladio, when he uses his social skills he seems like a totally different person.

P: Unlike Ignis, I’m not smart and I’m horrible at cooking.

P: But when I’m with everyone else, we have so much fun that I forget about my own self (points to his own weaknesses).

Then reality comes crashing back, and I remember I’m not like everyone else. I feel scared…

P: That’s why, I’m going to struggle everyday to become better.

-> Comfort him

N: I see. But I think you’re okay as you are now.

P: Eh? The me right now is okay?

N: Yes. Is there something wrong with that?

P: Ah, no. Just… I’m sorry for saying such weird things.

N: Anyway, you know I don’t make time for just anyone.

P: Eh? Why are you offended?

P: Ha… Thank you.

P: Ah, somehow I feel much better/lighter!

N: Haha, what’s with that?

P: Alright! I’m going to work hard at what I can do right now!

N: Right, I’m counting on you.


The Promptis is strong in this one XD
I hope the translation is alright! I’m not an expert in the language after all.

If there are any errors or suggestions, please let me know and thank you in advance! ^^

On moonlit night,

when sky is bright,

look to the ground and see,

what faerie feet have left on path,

a circle round and wee.

But keep afar,

from grassy scar,

that circles near the tree,

for if you tred,

or dance instead,

you never shall be free.

-

A rhyme Freya heard many times as a child from her mother as they passed the ring of mushrooms that envelop the largest oak in the park.

But it’s just an old wive’s tale- a fairy story, right?

Well, she’s about to find out that some tales are more real than expected.

Touch of Fae is an upcoming fantasy otome game about a girl who falls through a fairy ring and discovers a world beyond. Realising she is of both worlds, she has to make some tough choices and find out just which world she connects to more.

Love Interests

- 3 individual love interest routes

- 4 endings for each route (Bad end, Fae End, Human End, True Love End)

- Main character’s personality dependant on choices made by you

- Original art for all BGs, GUI, CGs, and sprites

- Character customisation!

- CG Gallery (CGs in the gallery will show the default character, as I have no idea how to code it otherwise! But CGs in-game will show custom character)

So, I’m finally getting to announce my new project I’ll be working on! I’m really excited to start it, and have been working on it since the end of last year. It’s still a way off from completion yet, but I thought I would show what I have so far.

It is indeed about faeries. Partly because I have always been interested in them, but also partly because I had the real urge to draw characters with bright hair and big ears.

And yes, there is going to be a character customisation feature in this VN! It’s something I’ve really wanted to add, and I’m finally pushing myself to do it. Unfortunately, that does mean CGs will take much, much more work, but I really hope it will pay off. Also, I imagine it will mean the game will have quite a large file size!

It will be commercial, though I’m still not sure on pricing yet, as I’m hoping I might be able to offer the routes individually and in a bundle. So, I will do my best to work that out! First thing I will be concentrating on is getting the demo up together, which I will release at the same time as Steam Greenlight (fingers crossed for that!).


Once again, I am a one-woman team on this project, so things will progress steadily but probably slower than most!



I would love to hear your first thoughts on this! Or, if you have any questions then please let me know- just send me a message, I always enjoy hearing from you guys! :)


I’ll be posting updates regularly, so keep an eye out!

A Preview of the new Touch It remix for Final Fantasy and further Announcements

Frank Oceans Fashion References in Blonde & Endless

Frank Ocean is one of the best songwriters of our time and an element that makes him special is his ability to use movies, art, fashion and connect it to his personal experiences. In Channel Orange, Frank created stories around the first summer he fell in love and he did so by using a lot of his favorite movies as clear and sometimes subtle metaphors. Channel Orange was fantasy with a hint of reality, he was at freedom to create characters, storylines and environment but with Blonde & Endless, he was limited to reality with a touch of fantasy as he stated he wanted to make it autobiographical. Frank was always seen at some of the biggest fashion shows around the world in New York and Paris and it’s interesting to see him trickle it into his music as in early works he relied solely on cars and movies.


This is the fashion of Blonde and Endless.


#.1 Alabama

“Vasoline and Reebok classics
Take the bully on his math classes
Her name was Remy we was cool after
Back when had some pairs of Air Maxes”


#2. U-N-I-T-Y

“Peace to Moschino, cover your ass, your rectum showing
Peace to the boys that we used to be though
Geto Boy North Face too cold on these hoes”


#3. Comme Des Garçons

“Feelings come, feelings go
Comme des Garçons, Comme des Garçons, Comme des”


#1. Nikes

“These bitches want Nikes
They looking for a check”

“I know that your nigga came with you
But he ain’t with you we only human and it’s humid in these Balmains" 

The music video features a variety of Nikes and exotic fashion peices: 

Frank is wearing the Nike Cortez in this scene

In the Heavens Gate scene he switches it up and wears the Nike Internationalists

Bianca Chandon Lover Hoodie

Jenny Holzer Truisms Tee 

Couture Embellished Leather Jumpsuit designed by Olivier Rousteing



#2. Pink + White

"Bending up my Nikes
Running out the melpomene, nicotine
Stealing granny cigs ”

 

#3. Futura Free

“Sometimes I feel like I’m a god but I’m not a god”

“I Am Not A God But I Am Something Similar”


Frank not only uses fashion as a symbol of status but more of a nostalgia trip and reality check. The Reebok classics remind him of his tough childhood whereas the Nikes and Balmain remind him that even know he has this much money, he’s just another guy.

“We only human and its humid in these Balmains”

How do I make the phone ring?
Why do I even care?
How are you all around me when you’re not really there?
When you’re not really there?
How do I feel you on me when you’re not on my skin?
Why do you say you want me, then tell me “I’m not coming in”?
Baby, just come on in

‘Cause every time I’m with you, I go into a zone
And I remember all the places you wanna go
Take me all the way
Ain’t nobody gonna touch it, touch it, touch it
'Cause every time I see you, I don’t wanna behave
I’m tired of being patient, so let’s pick up the pace
Take me all the way
Ain’t nobody gonna touch it, touch it, touch it
