UPDATE 6/5/15:

Since it's been a while; until now we've been waiting on a response from the lawyer. My Mom called his law firm weeks ago to ask if he had a due date in mind for the payment, as well as to see if he'd allow us to give him gradual payments ($200 per month, anything like that). Unfortunately he's yet to contact us back.

I'm going to encourage my Mom to call back. Luckily I guess this has given my Mom time to try to gather some money for the bill, but for an update, I personally have gained about $424 from donations and commissions. Goodness gracious the support has been unbelievable, and I seriously wish I knew half of the people who donated so I could personally thank them.

For now I'll say; thank you SO. MUCH. Thank you for supporting me and my family, whether it be with these donations/commissions or simply with supportive messages. It means a lot, really it does. I wish I could express that more. 

It seems like it's kind of a waiting game for now...after I talk to my Mom again about what her plan is now. Hopefully we can get the lawyer to talk to us. But again; thank you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I have a difficult situation going on…

For the short story: My Grandmother had a stroke early 2014 that left her bedridden. She eventually was admitted to a nursing home and my Mom had to go to court back in January of this year to file for Guardianship that’d allow my Grandmother long-term care at her Nursing Home. The court appointed a lawyer to represent my Grandmother, and the guardianship was granted. However, my Grandmother passed away two weeks later in February before we were given the granted court papers.

The Lawyer has billed us for attorney fees, and now we’ve received a court order to pay the lawyer’s bill of $1050.

We presently don’t have the funds to pay for it now, nor do we know of the due date of this payment or of the consequences if we wait too long to pay, but we hope to try to deal with this situation as soon as possible to avoid further difficulties.

It’s because of this that I’m reaching out for any possible help. Any help at all would make such a difference. If you’d like to send a donation, you’re free to send it to my Paypal, lunapangel@yahoo.com.

If not a donation, you can instead purchase my art. You can see examples and prices here,

This situation is very honestly frightening me and my sister...and I thank ANYONE who offers any sort of assistance in this situation. It’ll mean so much to us.

It was early morning when Eury had sat at the single wooden desk in his room of the Explorers apartment housing. Light shone in through the curtains of the window just above the desk. The sound of a pen tapping against the surface of a large sheet of paper could be heard.

This paper proved to be a map, the very same map he’d kept ever since his first day in Andalusst. The map had deep creases that suggested frequent use. In various places at one part of the map there were numerous small x’s beside the names of different areas.

The Zangoose found himself frequently switching between deciding on the next area to explore and thinking about possible plans for Geoda.

’We may not have explored this whole city, but seeing as the guilds are going to Geoda, this might be an opportunity to check that place out.

Though...is it necessary? Would it be wise to reenter that dungeon right now?’

As he dwelled on his thoughts he subconsciously let his tail swish along the floor behind him. Unbeknownst to him, however, two eyes had locked onto the long, fluffy tail.

“I GOTCHA!”

Eury’s head jerked up when he heard the youthful voice, accompanied by a sudden small weight on his tail. Although he instinctively tried to flick his tail away, he realized it was pinned to the floor.

Thoughts by MiaMaha

The Zangoose turned in his stool and, as he expected, he caught sight of his young Zigzagoon companion. Orpheus had pounced on his tail (not that this was the first time) and his paws were firmly and determinedly pressing down on the long fur. A huge grin was plastered on the child’s face and Eury simply flicked his tail loose, swishing it away. This didn’t stop the Zigzagoon from chasing after it.

Eury then looked around the room. Realizing another ‘mon was missing, he glanced back down at Orpheus.

“Joey left already?”

“Ah, yeah...!” The young boy confirmed, halting his chase in order to gaze up at the Zangoose with his large, green eyes. “Jojo had ta-- he had ta go to a um...applemint?”

There was a pause between them as Eury stared at the child, his eyebrow raising. Recognizing the confusion, Orph sheepishly continued.

“J-jojo said ‘s when a weally nice ‘mon makes shuh yo’ not sick!”

“Ah, an appointment.

“Yeah, dat!” the boy exclaimed, recognizing the word. “App- appo…poy..”

“Don’t hurt yourself, Orph.” Eury shook his head softly, turning back around in his stool. As he gazed down at the map, Orph’s voice picked back up.

“W-well before he lef’, we wah rollin’ aroun’ and aroun’ t’see who would get dizzy fuhst! Jojo ‘s real good at not gettin’ dizzy. And den-- den we played hide n’ seek!”

Eury hummed in response. He may have blocked out most of the children’s antics while he was focused on his planning, but he could at least recall feeling someone hide under his tail at one point. At the time he’d chosen to ignore it.

Though now he felt a nudge at his thigh, and looking back down he found Orph on his hind legs with his paws resting on the side of his stool.

Thoughts 2 by MiaMaha

“Can I come up, pwease?”

Silently Eury picked the Zigzagoon up and placed him on top of the desk, off to the side where he could sit and see the map. Orpheus tipped his head curiously.

“I was just deciding on the next few places we’ll be searching for your sister,” Eury explained before the younger ‘mon could ask any questions. With a black claw the Zangoose pointed at a few names. “I was thinking about these three areas. We can explore them while we wait for further instructions from the leaders concerning Geoda.”

“Geo...da…? Whatssat, Euwy?”

“A desert city, I believe.” Eury traced his claw away from the city area of the map until it landed on a drawing of trees labeled ‘Subseed Forest’. “It’s the city on the other side of the dungeon we explored.”

“O-oh…” came a quiet response from Orpheus. Silence came in between them for a moment. Not that that surprised Eury. After the frightening events that occurred within the Basalt Halls, he wouldn’t  be surprised if the child was now afraid of the dungeon.

“H-hey Euwy?”

“Yes?”

“D-do you...think Teagan is o-okay?”

Eury’s eyes rose back up to the boy, concern evident on the small child’s face. The image of the injured Bisharp, collapsed and motionless, came back to Eury’s mind. He was certain the exact same image was in his younger companion’s head as well.

“That Kirlia-- mm...his brother I believe; he’s probably taking care of Teagan. And Teagan is more than likely just recovering right now.”

Despite these words, Orpheus’ worry never left his face.

“Can we go see ‘im, bwother? Can we make sure he’s okay?”

Eury had to admit that a part of him wondered how the Bisharp was faring; after all, Teagan had protected Orpheus when he himself couldn’t. Not only that, but Eury had to recognize that it was a shard of the rock that he threw that caused Teagan’s injury. However...

“Bothering him during his recovery is unnecessary. Not only that, but I wouldn’t know where he lives anyway.”

“Y-yo’ map can’t tell us…?”

Eury shook his head and the boy fell silent again. Although the silence from this usually cheerful boy somewhat unsettled Eury, the Zangoose tried to focus back on the map, not sure what else he could possibly say to alleviate the child’s worries.

“...I wish I could see Ciewa again. I wanna see if she’s okay too.”

Eury’s ear turned at this, although he didn’t look up.

“I’m sure she’s fine. Ciela didn’t get injured during the exploration.”

“B-but her sissy looked weally, weally mad!” Orph insisted. “An’ they both looked weally scared an-- an’ Cici’s my fwiend, I don’ want ‘er ta be sad o-o’ scared…”

It was Eury’s turn to pause, taking note of the word Orph had used for Ciela. 'They knew each other for one day...children truly do form bonds so easily.'

His observations were soon interrupted when Orpheus decided to continue.

“Euwy, ahn’t you wuhwied ‘bout Owianna? I-I mean, Owianna was so scared n’ mad n eveything…!”

The image of the Smeargle came to Eury’s mind. If he were honest, he’d say he didn’t really know how to feel about Ciela’s sister. It was more than clear to him that Orianna was not too fond of him; her body language and attitude had delivered that message.

’All because I called her out for almost hitting a child? Or maybe my presence was simply discomforting.'

The Zangoose let out a sigh. It wouldn’t do him any good to recall those troublesome moments.

“I’m not worried about anybody, Orpheus.” The older man finally responded, returning to tapping his pen against the table.

“Yo’ not…?””

Eury shook his head. “If anything I just hope Teagan is healing well. He was a good mission partner.” The Zangoose turned the pen between his claws idly. “Orianna and Ciela I’m more than certain are fine by now. If they’re worried or feeling guilty over what happened to Teagan, I’m sure they’ll visit him.”

“B-but…”

Eury’s gaze shifted back over to Orpheus, seeing a confused furrow to his small eyebrows.  “I-isn’ Teagan yo’ fwiend too? Don’cha wanna see ‘im? Maybe we can find Owi and Cici and go togetha…!”

The Zangoose only half-heard anything after the boy’s first sentence. An unreadable expression came over Eury’s features as his jaw slightly shifted. He tried to remind himself that the child did not know better. But he wasn’t going to lie to himself; the boy’s innocent assumption rather irked him.

Slowly putting his pen down, Eury rested his elbow on the table and leaned his chin on his knuckles. After a moment of thinking about Orpheus’s questions, Eury deeply inhaled through his nostrils; now was a better time than ever to clarify things and speak his thoughts.

“Orpheus. I don’t make friends.”

Eury’s gaze flicked away from his companion to gaze out the window instead. But he could feel the child’s eyes on him, and he knew the boy more than likely looked shocked. Before Orph could comment, however, Eury continued. “It’s too troublesome. And to be honest with you, I don’t believe you making friends at the moment is a good idea.”

Thoughts 3 copy by MiaMaha

“Wha?!” The boy exclaimed in disbelief, causing Eury’s ear to twitch away. “W-why bwother?!”

“If your sister isn't here, we're going to have to leave Andalusst and leave these people behind. Just like those other towns we stopped by,” Eury explained calmly. He had a feeling the boy would react like this. “It’d be easier for you if you didn’t get attached to anyone. At least not until you’re with your sis-”

“B-b-but couldn’ w-we….visit o-o’ somethin’?”

"Orpheus, it's hard to travel around as things are.”

Eury’s gaze slid off to the side. It really wasn’t a made up excuse. The strange fog covering most of the world truly did make navigation near impossible. The only ‘reliable’ way to travel was through the dungeons, and as they had recently experienced, those were proven dangerous, even the ones that were considered ‘easy’.

For a moment Eury tossed around some of his thoughts within his mind, wondering which ones to voice. To make his point, he ended up adding one more thing;

“Besides, even if you did manage to return one day, there’s a possibility they won’t really remember you.”

For a short moment silence hung in the air, and Eury allowed his words to process. Soon, Orpheus’s quiet stutter met his ears.

"B-but dat's...dat’s t-too sad..."

"I’m just thinking ahead, Orph. And it's just how things a-“

Thoughts 4 by MiaMaha

Eury’s eyes had shifted back to the Zigzagoon, and it was then that the Zangoose saw the boy’s state. Orpheus was lying on his belly, his head on his paws and his ears swept back. He appeared crestfallen and his eyelids were drooped while his usually bright eyes watered with brimming tears.

The older man felt his tail involuntarily flick hard to one side. Once again he went quiet, taking in the sight and feeling a heavier discomfort rise within him.

“...but. If you really think it's that worthwhile...”

Orph’s head jerked up at that and Eury looked away, standing up from his seat. “Then you can go ahead and bond. I wasn’t planning on stopping you. Those were simply my thoughts.”

Aside from the air of uncertainty that seemed to remain around Orpheus, some sort of relief managed to alter the young boy’s expression as he sniffed and began to rub at his eyes. Deciding to let that subject end there, Eury walked over to the bed and pulled on his brown vest.

“Anyway, enough of that. We should head out. I think the district near that park we went through last time would be a good place to start.”

“O-okay, bwother...”

As Eury offered his arm to allow Orpheus to climb up onto his shoulder, he couldn’t help but let his thoughts continue to run as he approached their room’s door.

’As long as it doesn’t hinder our search, then I guess it’s fine.’ Eury reasoned, locking the door behind him before he approached the apartment’s stairs.

’In the end, if he gets hurt, he’s just going to have to learn for himself.’

PMDU: Lyrelight - Andalusst Arrivals by MiaMaha
PMDU: Lyrelight - Andalusst Arrivals

“Bwother, dis city is huuuuge!”

Eury temporarily tore his eyes away from the map in his claws to first glance over at the amazed child on his shoulder, and then at the looming buildings around him. Here they were, in the great city of Andalusst. Or at least, partially great. Every here and there the Zangoose spotted a broken roof or shattered walls, but he knew the only reason the buildings were in such a condition was because of the giant ‘mon that had rampaged through the city only days before they had arrived. And from the looks of it, the city was in the middle of reconstruction.

In the end, the Zigzagoon was right. According to the map Eury was so graciously given by an Andalusst citizen, this was one of the biggest cities he had ever seen.


I can only hope my hunch is correct… Eury huffed softly, scanning the map over once more to make sure they were heading in the right direction. Logically if any Pokemon would want to look for something, they’d want to check here first. There’s not much of a choice .

To think that only a month ago the Zangoose had been living a solo life, in a small town, where he could live quietly without anyone bothering him. Now as he navigated through these city streets, Eury found himself alert and aware of everything around him. The streets were full of ‘mon - visitors and natives alike - and he had to admit to himself that such a crowd brought him a good amount of wariness.

And yet here he was, in a place he never thought he’d ever be. And it was all because of Orpheus ; a little boy searching for his sister.

One must wonder how long it’ll take to search through this whole city…

Suddenly Eury felt something poking his cheek, and with a shift of his eyes he caught Orpheus prodding him with a paw, a look of curiosity on his young face.

“Yes, Orph?”  Eury questioned calmly. The nickname admittedly still felt rather awkward on his tongue. Never had he ever given another pokemon a nickname, but with Orpheus and his rather…intricate name, it made speech faster and easier.

“Where ah we goin’?” Orpheus questioned, blinking at the older ‘mon. “You whe’ talkin’ to a lotta people! Wha’ did dey say?”

“Ahh,” The Zangoose hummed. Now was a better time than ever to explain the situation to him. “This city runs three Guilds- ah, they’re…like special groups.” Eury’s eyebrow twitched as he tried to break down the information into words the younger boy could understand. This was something he found himself learning to do.  “If we’re going to stay in this city for a period of time, we’ll need a place to stay. The Guilds – if we join one – will give us a room in their housing for free. And we’ll be able to do little-….errands-mm…they’ll ask us to do things and if we do them, we’ll get money to buy food and we'll be able to support ourselves.”

Eury deeply inhaled, finishing his attempt at an explanation. Yet another thing he had to get used to that he really didn’t want to; talking.

“Ooooh!” Orpheus grinned and his tail began wagging excitedly behind him, thumping onto Eury’s back. “Gu…ild. Guild! Guild, guild, which guild ah we gonna get~?”

“There’s one called the Explorers,” Eury continued on, not bothering to mention the other two guilds – the Hunters and Researchers – to the boy. After all, he wouldn’t want to have to explain irrelevant information. “They’re best at uh…going on adventures and finding food and helpful items. I think that’ll work best for u-”

ADVENTURES?!” The Zigzagoon abruptly exclaimed, causing Eury’s ears to cringe away. Eury could see it; there were practically shining stars in Orpheus’s eyes, and he almost regretted using the word “adventure” as a substitute for dungeon explorations.

“Yeah…” Eury muttered, frowning at Orpheus. He wasn’t sure what kind of look he had on his face, but whatever it was, it delivered the right message seeing as Orph blinked and seemed to settle back down.  “Not that we’ll go on one right away, but…eventually, maybe. First, we have to sign up and make a team.”

“Okay~!” Orpheus chirped. “When ah we gonna get dere?”

“Soon-…now, actually.”

There was no doubt that they had arrived. The large Explorers insignia – a sort of detailed compass-like design with a large “E” in the middle – was displayed for all to see at the very front of the building. Though honestly, if that hadn’t been there, one wouldn’t have realized this building was something important like a Guild Hall. Other than the Explorers Symbol, Eury had to admit that the building was relatively plain in appearance.

The Zangoose wasted no time in observing and went ahead to enter the building. Inside the air felt rather light, very unlike what Eury had expected from an official building. A few Pokémon seemed to be loitering about – in pairs, Eury couldn’t help but note – though luckily for him none of them paid any mind to him. He honestly wanted to get registration over with as soon as he could, that way they could get the key to their new home in the guild housing and he could finally relax. Or well, relax as much as one could with a child around.

“Oooh…” Orpheus climbed up onto Eury’s head, looking around with wide green eyes. A part of the taller ‘mon hoped the boy would stay distracted by the environment, that way he wouldn’t spark any unneeded conversation with anyone while Eury filled out the paperwork he knew he would have to do.

The Zangoose kept a distant mind as he approached the front desk and asked about registration, in which he was given the proper forms to fill out. Whoever this front desk ‘mon before him was, or however they were speaking to him, he paid no mind to them. He had no interest in small talk, nor in befriending anyone. Yes, all he had to do was focus and fill out these forms and go. Any other words that reached his ears were just unimportant buzzing to him.

By the time he finished, he let his surroundings reach him once more and released a small breath of relief. After sliding the papers to the desk woman she smiled brightly and thanked him, sliding a housing key and a room number back. With that Eury turned, very much ready to leave. Only then, however, did he realize Orpheus was speaking to him.

“-and that’s why it’s such a cool name!!” The little boy, who now padded alongside him, finished giddily. Eury stared at the boy for a moment, presently lost at what the Zigzagoon had been going on about. From the sound of it, perhaps he had just been rambling.

“Right…” Eury acknowledged, his gaze moving to the side. It was then that the man found his golden gaze meeting another pair of eyes.

Upon catching sight of the owner, Eury felt the fur on the back of his neck stand on end. There, leaning against the nearby wall, was a lone Servine wearing a broad brim brown hat. She was inclining her snout towards his direction and gave a small nod, as if in greeting. Eury looked around, hoping that perhaps she was referring to someone else.

…when did everyone else leave?

"Hey... new, are you?"

Eury’s ear twitched and he grudgingly looked back over at her. From her body language – whatever body language a snake could possess - it seemed she was being cautious, yet her tone had a welcoming edge to it. "Hmm, stupid question. 'Course you are, I saw you sign in. Admittedly I'm not great with this meet and greet stuff, so how about exchanging names to start things off? You first."

Stupid indeed then.

Eury was just about to excuse himself, not in the mood for socializing with serpents, until he noticed Orpheus bounce up and down in place by his feet.

“Oh! Oh! Oh! Heya green lady! I’m Orpheus! And dis is my big bwother, Euwy!” the Zigzagoon piped up proudly, taking a few bounces forward to be a bit closer to her. Meanwhile, Eury found himself regretting not keeping the child on his shoulder, but he knew it was too late. Upon receiving a response, the female Servine visibly relaxed and folded her arms across her chest.

“Ahh, that's great. Yeah, when you said your name just then, it had that... that "zing". It means you're serious about this, yeah? As for me, my name's Teresa. I'm what you'd call a Guild Assistant, which makes me your Serperior."

Teresa stared at them with a blank face – most likely to let her pun sink in – and then proceeded to giggle quietly. Eury, however, stared back with unamused, half-lidded eyes. Orpheus on the other hand tipped his head to one side, the joke completely going over his head. Nonetheless, Eury was about ready to scoop the Zigzagoon up into his arms and walk away, but of course Teresa continued speaking.

“You know, you don't have to be so polite. I don't really care about rank and file, but I do care about honesty. If I tell a joke and it sucks, feel free to roll your eyes."

Polite.

Eury mocked the word in his mind. Though it was no surprise by now that his usual blank face had a tendency to process as different emotions depending on the ‘mon seeing it, for this Servine to take it as politeness in this case was...irksome.

Seeing her begin to extend one of her thin, green vines, Eury felt himself tense and he lowered his head in caution, closely observing the woman. However, on closer inspection, it seemed she was expecting a handshake despite keeping her arms folded. 

"So what brings you here, anyway? You from out of town, or...?"

“That’s none of your concern.” Eury stated, boring his gaze into hers in hopes of making her back down and leave them be. Perhaps it could’ve worked; he knew it had worked in the past with others. However, Orpheus was not aware of Eury’s mood and waved his paws in the air in an attempt to reach the extended vine. Teresa seemed to notice this and lowered the vine for the small ‘mon to grasp between both paws. With a satisfied, toothy smile, Orpheus proceeded to make exaggerated  up-and-down movements, to simulate shaking.

With another nod, the Servine withdrew her vine. “"Cool, cool... well, whatever the case, you've got a name in mind for your group, right? I didn't get a chance to check your papers, but I do want to get more familiar with our rookie members when I have the time. I'm kinda new to this whole assistant thing, honestly."

Well that explains a lot…

Sighing softly, Eury decided to give up on trying to find an exit. Thinking about it, perhaps this assistant had further reasons for speaking and questioning them than to just “get more familiar” with them. For all he knew, she could be assessing them and preparing a report for the leaders.

Whatever the case was, the Zangoose crossed his arms and tried to let himself relax in place. As the adult, he really should’ve been the one speaking, but even he knew he wasn’t exactly…good at hiding his distaste. Though he prided in being able to conceal his emotions, distrust was one he could not hide, nor did he feel a need to.

Not only that, but he couldn’t seem to recall what he exactly wrote down for a team name. He knew it was the last thing he filled out before turning in the paperwork, and yet…

“Lyreliiiight!!” Orpheus declared, pride practically rolling off of him in waves. This certainly caught Eury’s attention, and he tried to think back to when he was filling out those papers. Had he written that? Yes…now that he thought about it, Orpheus did catch him muttering about team names and provided his own input.

So that’s what he was going on about earlier.

“You see!” The young Zigzagoon continued, very obviously trying to contain his excitement within that small furry body. “The ly-ah is a petty instwament and is supah dupah ubah special to my Papa’s family! So ’s super special to our family! Thas wha’ Mama said!”

Well, at least the man got to hear about the information he had missed earlier, which was a rather interesting tidbit to say the least. As for Teresa, a smile crept over her features, though whether it was because she found the name inspiring or amusing was up for debate.

"There's that "zing" again. Feels good to know we've got Pokémon like you joining our Guild. I guess Cassidy wasn't exaggerating when he said the standouts just keep pouring in. Just don't get cocky - confidence is good, but overconfidence in a dungeon is a quick way to get yourself in trouble, along with everyone else in your party." She tapped the side of her snout then afterwards clicked her fingers. "Oh right, this is very important - why did you want to become an Explorer, hm? Just curious..."

Now this was a question he could answer, at least.

“We’ll be staying in Andalusst for a while, so we need a place to stay and a way to earn money to support ourselves.” Eury replied with ease. “Dungeon exploration will be pretty beneficial too, for reasons. The more food the better, mm.”

"...Because ultimately, the people come first, yeah? There's lots of food in the dungeons, and materials for clothing and medicine! When we go out and find that stuff, it means everyone here gets to have dinner. I mean, you know that, obviously, but just don't forget!"

Teresa’s words came out more rapidly and urgently than before, catching Eury off guard. Did she just try to put words into his own mouth…?

Not really. He answered her question mentally, suppressing the desire to send her a displeased glare.

“Yeah, yeah!!” Once again, Orpheus had different thoughts, whole-heartedly agreeing with the Servine. “Eating is good! Everyone should have yummy food! And stuff to help with the, um, ouchies and snifflies! E-even if it tastes bleh…” The Zigzagoon stuck his tongue out in distaste, as if he could taste the medicine already.

Teresa swayed her leaf-adorned tail from side to side and tapped her foot, momentarily distracted by her thoughts it seemed. The grin plastered on her face made Eury question whether it was towards the child’s innocence or towards whatever thoughts were going through her mind. Eventually she snapped back to reality, lifting her snout into the air and clearing her throat.

"N-not to sound standoffish, but what exactly do you do, anyway? What skills or talents do you have to offer the Guild? Everyone's good at something, I think."

“Fighting techniques. I was specially trained,” Eury answered, a lighter tone to his voice. “I’m relatively fast-acting.”

“Yeah, big bwother is weally stwong! Weally, Weally!” Orpheus added, looking up at Eury in admiration. Realizing he too needed to answer, his ears perked up and he was back to bouncing up and down. “Oh! I can sing! I can sing real good! Mama taught me!”

Honestly, if it weren’t for Orpheus being the mood-breaker in this situation, Eury knew this conversation (although it was an unwanted one) would be a lot more tense and awkward. He had to be grateful for the Zigzagoon for that at least. But of course Teresa had to pull him back into their talk by clicking her fingers and pursing her lips even before Orph finished his last sentence. Perhaps she had heard that nonexistent “zing” again.

"I can just feel it, you do what you do and do it with everything you've got. 'Cause in this guild, when a giver gives, then the giver gets... gotten... gets give-- eh, well you get what you give, or something. Whatever, it's written down on that big plaque in the hall. Just do your best and come see me if you need any help."

The Zangoose was more than sure that his shoulders completely relaxed the moment Teresa turned to leave, though not before she gave one last wave to which Orpheus returned with much energy. Eury didn’t waste another minute to watch her and squeezed their new housing key in his paw before leaning down and offering his arm to Orpheus, who habitually climbed it.

“Time to go see our new room.” Eury explained, holding up the shiny silver key. Orpheus’s mouth formed an “o” at the sight of the object and then he nodded eagerly, smiling that bright childish smile of his.

“Les go, bwother!”

As you can see, this is basically the "written test" for the written app, although this includes a beginning part that I didn't add into the written test. I excluded it from the app itself since, for an app, it seemed a bit excessive and I thought it'd be better to upload it separately since it introduced story/character elements and was a good transition between the 
intro comic and Lyrelight's life in Andalusst (since there was quite a jump there). And this way it can serve as a story part and not just an skippable section on the App? Yeah.

You are so much better than me. But hey, maybe you'd like to read a fanfiction I am writing. I've finished two parts and am working on the third. Not very many people have looked at the two I've finished.
I just want to get some more feedback so if you get the chance, please read them and tell me what you think.
