"Did you ever wonder...?" one woman asks, a little tentatively.

"Wonder about what?" the other asks.

"About her choice?"

"What good would that do?" the second woman says. "We both made our choice."

Somewhere very far away from that place...Collapse )

Shadow's Stories

I thought I'd post up some of the mini-fiction pieces that I wrote about Shadow whilst I played ZG. These aren't in any particular order, but for me the character just resonated on a level that I hadn't had before, and for which I am eternally greatful to annwfyn for helping me create.

What did you do in the Sixth Age, Daddy?

Hello to ALL ex ZG PLAYERS....

I meant to ask this ages ago, but never got round to it.

I didn't attend the final battle IC, although I wish I could have; so all my knowledge of the 6th Age is somewhat piecemeal and second hand.

If you have the time - and I really hope you do - please can you list your characters, their venue, and in a brief sentence or two what they did or where they went in the 6th Age?

I don't require an essay or saga, it's more like a CV - what were they, where were they, and what did they try to do or become in the 6th Age?

I'd like to know for curiosity's sake, and also I think it would be a lovely 'afterward' for the ZG chronicle. (Above and beyond the 6th Age stories which have been written here already.)

C'mon, fill this in for everyone, for all of ZG and the crazy frustrating epic brilliance it entailed!

I know also that in ZG cannon everyone was encouraged to walk into their own sunset (as it were) and that there's a possibility some of those might conflict. In this case, please offer up the neutral option if it impinges specifically on another character/re-occurring NPC/etc.

For example, "In the 6th Age, I kill X' is not the best thing to say. However, "X is my enemy and I seek to thwart or destroy them whenever I can" is perfect and brilliant.

Perhaps what I'm really really after, is a set of notes and people who bridge the 6th Age and therefore getting a clue as to how long it lasts and whether there will be a 7th Age or even what it might be like...

For example: What Raven's characters/NPCs did in the 6th Age...Collapse )

Any other details, NPC or mayfly character not mentioned you're welcome to ask about, and that would be shiny.

But most shiny of all would be this post being archive to a host of stories and characters in crystal brief for the 6th Age.

You never know, that way maybe we could play a 7th...... =)

Soundtrack to the end of the world

Whilst trying to get my brain to transfer the various Sixth Age stories I still have to write from inside my skull, I’ve thought about what songs would go with various events.

The main one I’ve covered so far is the Apocalypse, so here goes:

The heroes assemble

Lesiem – Liberta

The armies arrive on the field

Hans Zimmer – Crimson Tide Main Theme

The battle begins

Taku Iwasaki – The Wars of the Last Wolves (Ruruoni Kenshin soundtrack)

The tide of battle turns

Michael Giacchino – Nero Death Experience (from the Star Trek soundtrack)

The last stand against the Wyrm

Bon Jovi – Blaze of Glory

The last hero falls

Christopher Franke – Babylon 5 Sleeping in Light End Titles


Evanescence – Before the Dawn

The Sixth Age

Linkin Park – New Divide

Anyone else have any soundtrack ideas, or different tracks for this one?
