Reborn from Ashes: Trivia Page
The idea of writing a story about a younger version of Dust stemmed from the desire to write a story about Dust's return in a way that, as far as I could tell, hadn't been done before. Many other stories about Dust's return have him retain an appearance similar to that of the original game. I decided to make Dust a teenager because I felt that it was only fair to give the guy a chance to live his own life
There were scene ideas that didn't make it into the actual story. This included a visit to the blacksmiths' in Archers' Pass, where the team would have met up with Matti (now actually talking for a change) instead of Haley. Some scenes were written post-completion of Reborn from Ashes and now form a series of mini-episodes
Elissa originally shared a name with my OC, Junia, who is not a part of the Reborn from Ashes universe. In fact, her name had originally been Ashelin, just as Junia's had once been. I changed the name fro

Reborn from Ashes: I'm Not Saying I Called It...
I'm Not Saying I Called It but...I Called It
Having travelled with the party for some time now meant that Dust was fairly certain he knew how everyone interacted with each other. When it came to Jarin for example, he was less bratty than he was back in Falun but Ash generally ignored him, Taka spat insults at him on occasion, Kim was relatively civil and gave him shooting pointers, and Ginger was her usual motherly self — Jarin claimed to not like it but Dust and Fidget had both spoken to him enough to find out that, due to never really knowing his own mother, he secretly welcomed the attention.
The main interaction that everyone took notice of was that which tended to occur between Taka and Kim. Well, everyone except those two took notice of, it seemed.
“Do you think they’re ever going to clock onto this?” Ash wondered for the tenth time that evening as Kim insisted on helping Taka with the hunt for dinner. These exchanges had started of

Reborn from Ashes: The Knighting Ceremony
The Knighting Ceremony
When it came to birthday celebrations, up until his thirteenth birthday Dust had been used to having a small celebration with his mother, and inviting Kalyn and her family round for tea. The other villagers would wish him ‘Happy Birthday’, Corbin would throw out all the stops on the ‘big’ ones (ten and thirteen had been particularly memorable), but things would be generally rather quiet.
For the majority of his teens, Dust’s birthdays had become a lot busier. Kim, Taka and Sanjin would all book days off from their jobs on the Royal Guard, Ash would insist on helping Ginger with the birthday dinner, Jarin would pay Aurora a visit (on Dust’s fourteenth he was introduced to the Duke of Abadis for the first time), Queen Elissa herself sent birthday wishes, and Fidget would become the most likely suspect when the birthday cake went missing.
Dust’s eighteenth birthday, however, was an occasion all of its own, a

Reborn from Ashes: Some Like it Hot
Some Like it Hot
Regarding her friendship with Dust, Kalyn liked to consider herself the more responsible of the two. However, even she would agree that this time Gianni had taken it a step too far.
“Hasn’t the guy learned a thing?” she huffed as she plucked a Blomb Chilli from the bush in Ivydale Glen. “You’d think after the number of words people have had with him that he’d stop using kids to do his dirty work.”
“He hasn’t changed since Corbin was a kid apparently,” Dust shrugged, examining the chilli closely. They wouldn’t need more than one — he wasn’t so cruel as to completely overdo this. “If this thing doesn’t teach him a lesson, nothing else will.”
Dust was known throughout Aurora to always lend a hand to those who needed it, and unfortunately Gianni, known to be the resident snob, had taken advantage of this. He’d sent Dust out to do his laundry in Ivydale Gle

Shopping at the Merch...wait...
Dust couldn’t say that he was expecting to see a merchant’s tent at the foot of the Blackmoor Mountains, but he also couldn’t say that he wasn’t grateful to see it. The group’s food supplies were starting to run low now that Ash and Kim had joined the team, and Fidget wanted to see if anyone had any treasure keys at a discount. The last thing on Dust’s mind was treasure hunting, but if it stopped Fidget complaining he’d have a look.
“Been a while since I’ve seen one of these things,” Fidget remarked. “Don’t see Sereth doing the rounds as much nowadays.”
“Last I heard he’d set up a permanent shop somewhere,” Kim shrugged nonchalantly. “He sends people out now and then, but you don’t see the guy himself that often.”
“Mysterious as ever, huh?” Fidget remarked. Dust and already approached the tent, which Fidget quickl

You've read the main story of how Sen-Mithrarin was reborn, and saved the kingdom of Falana once again with the help of allies both old and new. Now, find out what other adventures Dust and the other denizens of Falana got up to before, during and after saving the world from the Tyrant King.
A Blacksmith Comes to Town:
It wasn’t often that Dust helped out at the shop, but Mordecai was expecting a delivery that day and had asked Dust if he could lend a hand helping him and Kalyn take in the stock. With a playful warning from his mother to not get himself blacklisted, and a promise of pay for his work, Dust agreed.
“Thanks for helping out today, Dust,” Kalyn smiled when Dust arrived outside the shop promptly at the agreed time. “This really is a big help.”
“No problem,” Dust replied. “You know me — always happy to help.”

Using HTML on deviantART

Hello!

Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :)
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy:
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

(V: ED) Warriors of Elysium
Alternatively: The Stupid Hat Club

Cast Picture of the Five 'Paladins' of Elysium for the Voltron: Elysian Defender AU, complete with the Stupid Hats and Blades of Elysium (which take the place of the bayards). I had a lot of fun designing these weapons – I'll give more information about them in the individual pictures (Jin in particular needs a solo picture – the spear got cut off in this one) – as well as the uniforms. I stuck with the colour set of the Paladins from Voltron (Black, Red, Green, Blue and Yellow) and the basic design of Dust's uniform from the original game, but each of the waistcoats incorporates the Voltron logo into them in a not-quite-opposite-but-fairly-close colour.

Dust wears his turquoise stuff as casual wear – non-combat-gear picture to come.

(V: ED) Worst. Pilot. EVER!
AKA: That one screen-cap from Voltron: Legendary Defender S1E1 that instantly became a 'Draw the Squad' meme.

This was the first picture I drew for this crossover AU (sometime close to September last year, maybe? I was still working on this style), and it probably shows, but how could I not draw the gang like this? Besides, the expressions in this show are pure gold and I love trying them out. This is also giving me some nice opportunities to try out new lighting techniques, as well as composition for drawing including multiple subjects...as well as those dreaded backgrounds.

Seriously, guys – Jin is trying to fly a giant blue lion mech right now. Strangling him isn't going to help (looking at you, Avgustin).

I'll get some cast pictures for this crossover-AU posted next: groups followed by individual profiles (this isn't going to be written into a story, or anything, seeing as the plot for this AU pretty much follows that of the Voltron Netflix show with a couple of minor differences, but I'll write small script snippets in the descriptions).

Voltron: Elysian Defender
Random crossover-AU combining two of my favourite franchises right now: Dust: An Elysian Tail and Voltron: Legendary Defender. This is one of a series of screen-cap redraws I've been working on for a while now (most of them from Season 1, I've got one from Season 2), but I thought this would be a nice one to introduce this little project of mine.

This AU-crossover is very much a mix of the traditional/fantasy found in D:AET and the sci-fi found in Voltron, so the gang still flies giant robotic lion mechs but there is a lot more magic woven into their equipment as well.

Voltron: Legendary Defender is the property of Dreamworks, Studio Mir and Netflix

Dust: An Elysian Tail is the property of Humble Hearts and Dean Dodrill

(Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about Fidget. She just didn't fit into this screen-cap, she'll show up in the next one)

  • The idea of writing a story about a younger version of Dust stemmed from the desire to write a story about Dust's return in a way that, as far as I could tell, hadn't been done before. Many other stories about Dust's return have him retain an appearance similar to that of the original game. I decided to make Dust a teenager because I felt that it was only fair to give the guy a chance to live his own life

This included a visit to the blacksmiths' in Archers' Pass, where the team would have met up with Matti (now actually talking for a change) instead of Haley. Some scenes were written post-completion of Reborn from Ashes and now form a series of mini-episodes

  • Elissa originally shared a name with my OC, Junia, who is not a part of the Reborn from Ashes universe. In fact, her name had originally been Ashelin, just as Junia's had once been. I changed the name from Ashelin to Elissa after I came up with my Moonblood Mage, Ash, and at the time Junia shared the same name. I changed Junia's name to Junia to differentiate her between the princess from the Reborn from Ashes universe and her own

  • Out of the new cast members, I had drawn Taka, Ash and Jarin once before. Ash and Taka's designs remained unchanged by the time I posted their designs and bios, but Jarin was the only character to undergo a complete redesign:
    • His fur changed from white to grey. His hair and eye colour, however, remained unchanged

    • His red tail-coat changed to a purple jacket, similar to Dust's from the original game, and a small cape, as well as golden shoulder guards

    • His colour scheme overall changed from red to purple, to suit his aristocratic nature better and also because Kim suited the red colour scheme better

  • Jarin is the only other member of the main cast aside from Dust to wear shoes

  • From the youngest to oldest, the main cast (including Kalyn) are the following ages:
    • Kalyn (13)

    • Dust (13, a few weeks older than Kalyn)

    • Jarin (14)

    • Ashelin (15)

    • Kim (18)

    • Taka (20)

    • Fidget (actual age unknown, but assumed to be biologically older than Taka but younger than, or around the same age as Ginger. This has no bearing on how old she is in nimbat years, which is also unknown)

    • Ginger (31)

    • Sanjin (approx. 35 physically and in Moonblood years)

  • There were two endings that were under consideration for the story. One was the ending that was written and published, the other was as follows:
    • During the final confrontation with King Julius, the battle actually goes to the Shrine of the Life Thread, which in the published story only Sanjin goes to during the final battle

    • King Julius is disarmed, but Dust refuses to end his life and instead offers mercy

    • Julius mortally wounds Dust instead of accepting an offer of peace, and is about to kill the others when Ginger pleas to save her son's life in return for her surrender

    • Despite Dust's protestations, Ginger prepares to offer a prayer, using the Eye of the Life Thread, to heal Dust's injuries. This type of event was hinted at by Ash in Chapter 9 during the conversation with Elder Grey-Eyes

    • Dust destroys the Eye of the Life Thread before Ginger can fully heal him, using the Iced Steel Dagger given to him by Kalyn. The destruction of the Eye recalls all of the souls summoned by the King, and drags Julius into the Life Thread along with them

    • The team lay Dust to rest in the Shrine of the Life Thread, placing him and the Blade of Ahrah on the altar. Ginger says a final goodbye, and the group prepare to leave when Fidget notices the Life Thread returning life to Dust

    • Dust wakes up, and it is revealed that his third soul was returned to him, while Jin and Cassius remain part of the Life Thread. After a joyous reunion, the team return to their lives in Falana

    • The epilogue plays out the same as in the published version of the story

  • I have written out an information booklet for a game version of the story. The booklet contains character information and abilities, button actions, area information, item names, boss fight info and strategies, and story notes
    • In the information booklet, Ginger's curry buns, noted in the main story to be Dust's favourite food, are listed as a healing item. They would be the highest tier of healing foods in a game context

    • The boss fights, in order, would be as follows:
      • The Captain of the Guard

      • Taka

      • Possessed Dust/Cassiust

      • Lady Tethys

      • Dust (as well as a boss rush featuring the bosses of Dust: An Elysian Tail)

      • King Julius

    • If the story took place as a video game, Dust would unlock the ability to call forth his twin souls which in turn would have their own unique abilities: Cassius would display increased attack power and speed, and comes with the ability Cloak (which turns Dust invisible for a few seconds) at the cost of losing the Dust Storm ability; while Jin has higher agility and jumping height, as well as the ability Vice Grip (allowing Dust to climb walls without vines), at the cost of lower attack and defence stats

  • Aside from a How to Train your Dragon fanfiction over on my fanfiction.net account, Reborn from Ashes contains the largest number of OCs out of all the fanfictions I have written up to this point. Some are background characters, some are mentioned but never actually seen, and then we have the main character cast (I do not count Taka as an OC as she already exists in the Elysian Tail universe, but her appearance in Reborn from Ashes is my own take on her). The OCs include the following:





    • Kalyn's siblings: Dexter, Ivan and Mindy

    • Tristan, Ginger's Moonblood physician apprentice

  • Reborn from Ashes is the first fanfiction that I have published that is based on a video game and has nothing to do with the How to Train Your Dragon franchise (which One Step at a Time does because it's a Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons story)
Reborn from Ashes: Trivia Page
I had a lot of fun writing Reborn from Ashes, and I wanted to share some behind-the-scenes info with you guys about the story. As part of my fanfiction.net profile, I have a Trivia section about the stories I have published on that site, so I thought I should share something similar with you guys regarding Reborn from Ashes. This page is subject to being updated if I remember anything else that needs adding to it, but this can pretty much be considered the 'trivia page' from the IMDB webpages.

I've loved drawing for ages and have so much stuff I figured I needed to get it somewhere! Most people ask why I didn't take art for higher education - in truth, the type of art done isn't my thing (a lot of sculpture work and collages) plus I would rather do art as something I enjoy. In addition to art, I love reading, writing, listening to and playing music - I'll listen to most stuff if I like it.

As well as doing artwork, I write for fanfiction.net but I may post a few things on here as well (most likely crossovers with more than two categories such as The Big Four/Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons). I also cosplay from time to time, with my current costumes coming from Legend of Zelda and How to Train Your Dragon

Let me know if you want to see more of a certain type of work - hand-drawn, digital or literature. I'm open for suggestions.
