In The Wreckage of the Tower...
It had been months since the Tower had fallen and the City had been retaken.
The Guardian scrabbled through the wreckage, digging, burrowing, searching, hoping against hope. He fractured a segment of stone, revealing a flickering blue and orange glow. Was it-? Could it be-?
It was! A heavily damaged Vault terminal, still somehow connected to enough power to maintain a tenuous connection to the digital and physical personal gear holds farther down inside what was once the shining beacon of the Last City's heroes.
His Ghost put their identification into the system while the Guardian did his best to enlarge the area around the half-wrecked terminal and reinforce the walls of rubble and ceiling of wreckage all around them. Eventually the Ghost pulled a stable connection from the twisted chaos of the old Towernet system running on the dregs of power still flowing through the circuits of the Wall, and the Guardian was satisfied they had enough space and security to complete the task they had

Springtime
Ah wonderous Spring nights, why must you vex me so, the fragrant breeze keeping my body burning awake, alive, thrumming with life, long after my mind would rather I just collapse, a heap along the ground.
"A pox upon Spring!" I would say, were Springtime not the most wonderful of seasons-- and if it did not have one already! May man one day find a way to give pollen allergies of its own!

Things to do once I have my own place:
1)Have a TV in my room.
2)Have an Xbox in my room.
3)Realize that since it's my place, they're ALL "my" rooms.
4)Move TV and Xbox into living room.
5)Continue thinking of them as being in "my room".
6)Laugh maniacally.

It had been months since the Tower had fallen and the City had been retaken.

The Guardian scrabbled through the wreckage, digging, burrowing, searching, hoping against hope. He fractured a segment of stone, revealing a flickering blue and orange glow. Was it-? Could it be-?

It was! A heavily damaged Vault terminal, still somehow connected to enough power to maintain a tenuous connection to the digital and physical personal gear holds farther down inside what was once the shining beacon of the Last City's heroes.

His Ghost put their identification into the system while the Guardian did his best to enlarge the area around the half-wrecked terminal and reinforce the walls of rubble and ceiling of wreckage all around them. Eventually the Ghost pulled a stable connection from the twisted chaos of the old Towernet system running on the dregs of power still flowing through the circuits of the Wall, and the Guardian was satisfied they had enough space and security to complete the task they had come here to attempt.

It was a fool's quest they were on, a risk to the point of ridicule for a prize most others would dismiss without a second glance. In the months following the first Guardian had reclaimed her power from the Traveler's Shard, many had felt its power slowly return to them as they traveled the wilds, it was true, but the crisis had reminded them all that nothing was still without true risks. Still, he had sworn to find it no matter the risk.

He searched through the system trying to find his gear among the shattered remains of the database, and then,

There it was.

The Red Death.

The gun that had seen him through so much was finally a single console command away.

The Guardian set the system to transmit, hoping against hope that the weapon had survived the destruction that literally surrounded them.

The gun materialized before him. He gasped, in pain and joy- the gun that had held true for him against the Darkness for so long was finally returned to him, but now twisted and fractured far beyond repair. The Vanguard's forgotten orders of termination now almost carried out by random debris and shattered data, the gun's chassis was twisted, bent, scorched, and looked to be missing small pieces of it, as if not all of its digital matrix had survived either.

He held his head in his hands, sorrow washing over him. He would never be able to repair such extensive damage. No one could, not even the most capable gunsmith. Make a new one, sure. But it just wouldn't be the same.

A glint of light caught his eye- the blade still, somehow, as sharp and true as the day he found it in the snowy lair of the first machine reflected the fading light of the terminal. He looked at it, and a thought, a hope anew, began to form. The weapon's body was unsalvageable, it was true, but perhaps something still remained. He carefully disassembled the scorched and twisted remains of his faithful weapon. His ghost offered to render it into its component parts, but he would do this himself. He owed it to the weapon that had seen him through so much to do this with his own two hands.

He gathered what he could: the bayonet's blade, still crimson and sharp, a section of the spiked barrel shroud, stained with the runoff of a thousand battles, the firing pin, the key component of its lethal burst, and the intact remains of some inscrutable subsystem deep within the weapon's workings, glowing with smartmatter and power transfer conduits. He didn't know what exactly the system did, but he had a good guess as to its purpose.

The rest, he allowed his Ghost encode into an engram. He would take the weapon's wreckage to the frigid Steppes and recall it one last time for a burial in the soil upon which he had first beheld it. The components, however, he had another plan for.

No, a new weapon wouldn't do, but perhaps a reborn weapon, forged from what remained of the old, rebuilt into a new shape, that might be possible. He didn't have much material to work with and he didn't want his old companion's spirit to be lost within the metals of a new gun, merely a few small parts of a larger weapon, but perhaps if he reconfigured it into something smaller...

He wasn't sure how exactly he would bring his old weapon back, but as the Guardian departed from the wreckage of the Tower, he did know one thing.

Whatever new form his weapon would take, the color would be Crimson.

A little something I wrote up over on Reddit after seeing someone else post a bit of personal lore-writing following the opening to Destiny 2 wherein [SPOILERS] shit gets fucked and the Guardians have to start from scraps, even if you played the first one and had a massive horde and theoretically were playing the same character.

Here's the link to his post: www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGam…

I'd link to mine, but I only messaged him with it, and save a minor word choice edit or two, it's pretty much identical to what I've put up here.

Hey guys, I know I've been largely inactive for the longest time now, but what can I say, I've been doing less of my own art to upload to this place and I've been finding more fulfilling social interaction through gaming and-- shockingly-- real life via college. That, plus I've recently stumbled onto Tumblr, which is so much better than Facebook that I wouldn't go on there at all if I didn't have a gaming group that I'm actually interested in improving in spite of myself.

Still, I don't want any undue concern, and I do appreciate the support over the years so I figure I'll at least clue you guys in on what I've been up to all this time as if they care no shut up, you, positive self image! people care what I think, all that crap Erherm, sorry about that, still working on that whole part, but I'm making progress.

ANYway, yeah, I'm getting into my next-to-last semester at college, and I think I'm starting to get the swing of it. That's at least one semester earlier than I caught ahold of High School, so I'm improving! I've got a real wacky schedule this year, but in return I've got nearly all the classes I want/need this time around! Painting class for art-major credits, looks pretty good.

As far as personal projects go, I think I'm gonna actually make some strong progress in fabricating this scrapyard armor I've been toying around with the idea of since before Freshman year, and I'm currently in the process of retrofitting a few of my Red vs Blue OCs for transfer into the RWBYverse. So far I've got Jaimeson set as the lead on a Beacon team comprised of him and three new characters made up to fill the rest of the roster. I've got weapons for all of them, but no names for the rest of them and no first name for Jaimeson to fit Monty's naming rules. I *do* however have the name of the team: JSPR ("jasper"), a type of rock that can be red, blue, green, yellow, or brown. So far I know that Jaimeson will be the J, and take up both the red and green slots, and P will be blue and probably have a name based off of perywinkle. S and R I don't know about, because while I know for certain what weapons the group will use, other than Jaimeson's I can't really see what colors they'd work best in. I might be uploading some of that material sometime in this semester. No outfits, either, but I've actually just started on what could be Jaimeson's top half, and I'm pretty sure that either Yellow or Brown will wind up wearing a duster.

Incidentally, if any of y'all know or can think of a word that starts with R and means, translates to, or makes you think of the color brown or yellow, I'd really appreciate it if you could throw me a bone.

Hey, to all my friends with Freelancer OCs, I got an idea for a story prompt. Here goes:

Your Freelancer is dead. The final curtain. Dead as a doornail, as the phrase goes. Or maybe not, maybe they're just done with the whole deal, fed up with the war or just plain unable to go on. Whatever the case, your Freelancer is done. Dead, quit, it doesn't matter. They ain't a fighter any more. That's it. The final curtain. But what happened?

Was it fighting against impossible odds? Holding the line so their comrades could live another day? Dead or injured beyond repair, leaving them either mentally or physically broken?

Or did they succumb to the inner demons? Break a code of honor or just plain break under the stresses and torment of war?

I know how my own Agent Pennsylvania would go out, but if you could choose a way for your own to leave, what would it be?

Not necessarily personal canon, of course. This doesn't have to be how they go out "for real" if you ever do want to nail that door shut on their story.

No prob! I just tried to do that achievement myself recently and wound up losing the gnome in a pool in the mines --the same one every time-- about six times in a row before giving up on it, so I know it's a pain. Funny thing, the bugger seemed to just plain disappear as soon as it was out of my sight. Eh, probably had a Travelocity commercial to film.
