Always and Forever

Fandom: Tales of Zestiria the X
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Alisha and Rose are reading the Celestial Records by the lake when they start to talk about someone who they had to leave behind. Will they see him ever again or should they move forward?
A/N: I have wanted to write something about Tales of Zestiria (the X) for the longest time.  The problem has been which canon to follow since I like them both. In this fic I chose the anime version of the story but I cannot help the feeling that I’m picking something from the game too.


Always and Forever


“Look, the sun is already setting.”

Rose looked up from the Celestial Records and saw that Alisha was right. The lake was sparkling in orange and the sky was slowly turning from lilac and pink to deep blue. There was already a mild scent of dampness in the air and birds had quietened and given grasshoppers their turn to tune the peaceful beach near the forest.

“I didn’t realize it was so late,” Rose said. “Didn’t you need to return today?”

“Well, yes. I’m surprised that no one has come to look for me yet.”

“They are probably hiding in the bushes wondering what they should do.”

“You think so?”

Alisha laughed, and her face lit up for a moment. She was surprisingly beautiful when her eyes narrowed, and lips curled upwards. Rose hadn’t realized these little things when they had met the first time. It was just lately when they got together. It was like Alisha had come out from her shell and started to shine in a different way than before. All the hardships they had met had brought them closer than Rose would have ever believed.

“Yeah.”

Rose smiled back and stood up. She stretched her arms and legs which were stiff after sitting on a tree trunk most of the afternoon.

“So, what are you going to do?” Rose asked. “It’s not safe for the Queen to travel by night.”

Alisha closed the Celestial Records and rose up. She looked at the forest like she really believed her guards were there. Her blond hair danced in the evening wind, and Rose’s heart twisted. The wind always made her heart pound a bit louder. It was like… like she could still hear him and yet she couldn’t.

Alisha turned around and walked towards Rose. She smiled but there was also sadness in her eyes.

“Do you think we’ll ever see him again?”

Rose opened her mouth but couldn’t answer. 

“You know… when I met him, I thought that there was something, something special there. No one had ever made me feel so… touched. There were times I honestly thought that when this is all over, we could…”

Alisha couldn’t say anything more. Rose nodded. She knew exactly how her Highness was feeling. 

“I sometimes wonder too… that if there could have been something more… if there had been more time… if he hadn’t gone away…” 

The words were hard to say. Rose hadn’t said them to anyone. She had just smiled and told everyone that it was okay to change him to Zaveid like seraphim were some kind of tools. When one broke down, you just got a new one. When she thought about that moment, she felt like crying but there were no tears. They had dried down even though he would have deserved some. 

“Oh, I figured you two were just friends…” Alisha’s voice pulled Rose back to reality. She blinked her eyes. 

“Well, yes… yes, we were.”

“But you hoped for something more?”

Rose didn’t answer. She didn’t know what she was thinking. They had always been together, but she hadn’t known it until recently. Now she knew that he had taken over her body and made her do things. He had been one with her. What he had done was wrong, but Rose couldn’t make herself to be mad at him. Not anymore at least. And she would have given the world if he would come back and she could tell him that he was a big jerk.

But nothing would bring him back. There was no hope.

You should look forward…

“What?”

“I asked if you hoped for something more with Sorey,” Alisha said. 

Rose blinked her eyes again.

See what’s right in front of you…

“What? No! I couldn’t hope anything more from him. He is saving the world already. He sacrificed himself for everyone.”

You both have lost something dear…

“Yes, and he would like to see us move forward. Don’t you think?”

“Of course he would.”

And you should… There can still be happiness. It doesn’t have to be me. You have each other. 

“Wait… did you just hear that?”

Alisha grabbed Rose’s hands and looked her right in the eyes. She had beautiful eyes, they were like lakes. So deep and drowning. It would be easy to just stare at them and forget everything.

The wind danced around Rose and Alisha and made their hair fly. It grabbed their clothes and tickled their skin.

“I… I think Sorey is trying to say something to us,” Alisha said.

The wind was getting harder. It was like a small tornado all around them pushing them to each other. Rose drew Alisha closer and held her. She didn’t want her guards to blame her if something were to happen. 

I will be there always and forever, but you should take the happiness that’s right in front of you. I’ve seen you. It’s the right choice.

And just like that the wind was gone. Alisha was still in Rose’s arms eyes wide and scared… no, not scared, amazed. 

“I think Sorey wants us… to be together.”

Rose stared Alisha. It wasn’t Sorey. Sorey would never say something like that. He was blind to these kind of things.

It wasn’t Sorey. It was him. The one who knew Rose better than anyone. When they were one he had seen to her heart. He knew everything. He was the only one who knew how she loved.

“Yes, always and forever,” Rose answered to Alisha. To him. 

To Dezel.

FF30: The Invitation

Emmi and me wanted to celebrate 30th anniversary of Final Fantasy series. This is my Final Fantasy III piece I wrote in fall 2017. I published it originally in Finnish and this is translated version.

The third one is from Final Fantasy III and it is written by me.

The Invitation

Sweat was running down Refia’s spine gluing her shirt to her skin. Her red hair clung to her nape and yet more sweat was running down her neckline. But Refia didn’t care. Holding a piece of metal with pliers to the anvil, she raised the hammer and banged on the metal over and over again. The sound could have hurt her hearing but the years of working as a smith had already dulled her ears.

When the sun set, Refia lowered her work to the vat, and the small workshop was suddenly full of steam. It was just then that Refia realized that someone was standing at the door.

“Takka?” She asked. The man laughed.

“Have you have already forgotten me?” A familiar voice answered and Refia couldn’t help but smiled. She lifted the piece from the vat and ran to the door.

“Luneth!”

A silverhaired young man tucked her into his embrace, not caring that she was dirty and sooty after working whole day.

“Nice to see you again. What are you working with?”

Refia stand back and went to get her project. She lifted a huge sword that she had been putting the finishing touches on the whole day.

“I call it Rexcalibur, the sword of kings.”

Luneth’s voice was grave as he nodded. “That will be needed. It isn’t a coincidence that I came by. King Alus has summoned the warriors of light to his side.”

Refia’s heart suddenly jumped. Yes, she loved her work as a smith but the truth was that it was more Takka’s dream than hers. Thinking that she had lost her smile, she had promised to Takka that she would stay at home for good. She couldn’t go Luneth.

“I… I can’t. You should take this sword. May it protect you on your journey,” she said and handed Rexcalibur to Luneth. He shook his head.

“That isn’t the answer the real Refia would give.” Takka’s voice was suddenly coming from outside. “If the king has summoned you, you must go.”

“But… I promised to you…”

“You have fulfilled that promise. You are a better smith than I can ever be but I see what your heart really wants. So, go and find your way,” Takka said and turned to Luneth. “You better make sure that she comes see me after your adventure. In one piece.”

”I think that Refia is perfectly capable of taking care of herself and her friends too,” Luneth said. “Shall we go, Refia?”

For a moment, Refia couldn’t move or said anything but then she jumped into the air, the sword still in her hands. It swung dangerously close to Luneth who backed off laughing.

“Oh, we shall go!” Refia said. ”Saronia, here we come!”

Tämä on vanhan ficin uudelleen julkaisu. Aloitin ficin kirjoittamisen vuonna 2002 ja se valmistui vuosia myöhemmin. Se on julkaistu aiemmin nimellä Final Fantasy IX, mutta halusin vaihtaa nimen persoonallisemmaksi.

Ficci julkaistaan sellaisena kuin sen aikoinaan kirjoitin. Se kulkee hyvin pitkälti Final Fantasy IX -pelin tarinan mukaan (höystettynä muutamilla lisäkohtauksilla) ja repliikkien tukena on osittain käytetty pelin käsikirjoitusta.
