KH Vye Origins Part 8
            “It’s time to test out that Cure of yours,” Malik announced one day.
            He didn’t really elaborate much more than that, but after all this time I was used to Malik’s tendency to withhold information. After I had spent the last few weeks trying my best to master Cure, he was leading me off through the castle grounds.
            What he neglected to mention was he planned on doing this test at the infirmary on castle grounds near the guard station. This is where they would take the injured people after fights with the Heartless. It did occur to me the only way I would be able to see if my Cure was working was to use it on someone that was already hurt. I guess I just hadn’t anticipated visiting the people who had gotten hurt trying to keep the rest of us safe from the Heartless.

Chapter 8: Task At Hand
 
            Seisho made his way down the street as quickly as he could. He’d slow down now and then to look around but would then keep on running.
            He was currently in the eastern part of the city, having gone a several kilometers from his home. Had he realized beforehand he would be going so far, he probably would have taken his mother’s car.
            Seisho came to a stop to catch his breath. He looked around as he wiped his forehead.
            “Should be the right way,” he muttered.
            Seisho has been speaking just to himself, so when he got a response, it surprised him.

KH Vye Origins Part 7
            The day following my battle with the Heartless and the memorial was my seventeenth birthday. Seeing how I wasn’t conscious for my last birthday, my family seemed determined to help me enjoy it.
            My father had two sisters, and my mother had a sister and two brothers. These aunts and uncles brought their families to the castle that day to help us celebrate. We just got together in the evening and had a meal together. It was about as fancy as I let them get. I didn’t really care for anything more.
            I had tried to talk them out of gifts, but of course they all brought some anyway. It seemed they were trying to show their support in my magic studies as many of them brought me different spell books, charms, and other equipment that could be helpful. I appreciated their thoughtfulness and acceptance of my stud

KH Vye Origins Part 6
            I only vaguely remember what we did after the fight with the armor Heartless was over. I think we went to see my parents. I remember there was some shouting and I think Mother cried over me. I attempted to eat some breakfast but was only mildly successful. I think they were still talking about it when I asked Vander to help me get back to my room.
            The early start of my day and the unexpected strain from the fight left me tired. I went and crashed on my bed and fell back asleep.
            I slept until the afternoon. I was still in a bit of a daze but I wanted to be ready for the memorial service that evening. We held it just outside the castle walls. The citizens gathered together while my family stood on a stage.
            We held the memorial at sunset. As the sun

KH Vye Origins Part 5
            “Magic does not reward the impatient or the over confident. Seeking out a fight whether or not you will win will not prove anything. Do you understand?”
            “I understand.”
            I did understand.
            But…
            The question of whether or not I would win was not the question I wanted answered.
            Maybe it was silly of me to not have said so.
            When I had said I wanted to fight a Heartless, I was thinking I’d just go outside the castle walls and wait for a Shadow or two to come along. Maybe a Soldier. Since it would hav

Chapter 4: Masters and Their Students
            The day continued much how it normally did. Juto and Kimiten returned to their lessons while Seisho went back to the housework. They had lunch in the afternoon and then all went back to work afterward. Seisho was left with the lunch dishes which he soon cleaned and loaded into the dishwasher. The new batch filled the machine, so Seisho started its cleaning cycle.
            It was at this point he heard a soft chiming sound coming from the front room. He looked towards it, recognizing it as his cell phone which had been left in his jacket pocket. Seisho made his way to the front door where he had left his jacket hanging on a coat rack.
            Seisho pulled out the phone and saw he had a couple of messages he had missed. The newest was a text message from his mother.

For other players that maybe are watching me and are only curious with what I am and where I am, I decided on an Au Ra species, I started down the Thaumaturge and I'm currently a Black Mage. I play on the Aether Cacutar server. I'm level 46 and I'm locked out for the rest of the story until I hit 49 so I'm just doing level up stuff. My sister is already part of a Free Company and so she invited me into it with her.

So for the rest of you that don't know what that is or want to know the story behind this, continue on.

My sister had it and has been bugging me to play it with her. I had tried MMOs in the past and didn't really get into them. I just prefer single player so I don't have to compete or disrupt any other players. My sister's husband is really into WoW and she played it with him for a while. She convinced me to try that too. She tried walking me through it but because I didn't understand what I was doing or why, I just couldn't really get into it. At the time they were also playing Horde and based on what job I wanted, the best race for me was a troll. I kinda didn't feel attached to my character because I didn't really get to pick it so it just didn't grab me.

I had also tried the fan made My Little Pony MMO. I was more into that because it was a character I got to pick although it also seemed to only give me two choices of job of either a healer or ranged attacker. I would have ordinarily picked the attacker, but I had a hard time figuring out the controls of that game. I'm not used to computer games in general and so it was rare I could get my attacks to work. I somewhat got the handle of healing but never played enough with other people to find out if I could be a good supporter. I got sick around the time it came out and couldn't really play much and haven't returned to it since. I'm not against the idea. Maybe even now I could figure it out more, haha.

But I like Final Fantasy and since my sister moved away this seemed like a good way we could still do something together. Also, since it's available on the PS4, it means I can play on my couch and use a controller I'm used to. That was a big selling point to me. If it had been on the computer, I don't know that I could have or would have wanted to play it as much as I have over the last week or so.

When I started, it was introducing races and jobs and I discovered that the text was SUPER small. Even on my TV, if I want to read it I have to sit up pretty close. Now granted, my vision isn't what it used to be. If I had glasses I could probably sit back further. But since I'm too stubborn to get them, I just make due. Anyway, the small text was one thing, but the descriptions were another. It was giving history and backstory and stuff I had no idea what it was talking about. It had only somewhat introduced the story in that there was a big war and a disaster and that's all I knew. I had no idea what FFXIV was even about so the descriptions really didn't make any sense to me.

While creating my character, I asked my sister if it mattered what I was. And what do you know, you can be whatever you want with whatever job you want. I wasn't limited into what I could be! So I got to choose everything and it wouldn't make my character unable to be changed later on.

Now, I have no idea what might have brought this on, but I remember distinctly that when I went to start up the game I thought to myself how I wanted to be a race with a tail or a lizard. NO IDEA. Just what I wanted. I still don't really know all the names of places or races in the game, and there is one that are basically cat people. I figured a lot of people would be one of them so I didn't want to do that. But then I saw this Au Ra race. My sister and I call them "dragon people" as it says they believe themselves to be descended from dragons. They are humanoid but have patches of thick scales, horns, and a tail.

What do you know, a lizard with a tail!

I hadn't quite made up my mind so I started playing with the customization to see how it all worked and how much control I had. The more I customized her, the more I really liked her. She was mine! I made her!

When it came to choosing my combat, I had no idea what I wanted. A lot of the roles were using jargon and stuff again so I wasn't sure what they all were. I was considering being an archer, but I really liked the idea of using magic. I didn't trust myself with healer so I went with what my sister said was a black mage, Thaumaturge. It sounded fun to me.

Backing up a bit, I had been playing my Pokemon Sun Nuzlocke. In that game, I had named them all after musical terms. I had a list of terms to use. I had caught something recently and was looking over the list of words and came across "Alto" and thought that would be a good name but couldn't remember if I had used it so I didn't at the time. A short time later I was doing a random game in Sims and needed a last name and "Alto" immediately came to mind. That didn't seem like it was enough of a last name, so I turned it into Altos because that just sounded more last name-ish.

When it came time to name my Final Fantasy Au Ra, I wasn't sure what to do. When I played other races in Xenoverse, I tried making names that made sense. Like my Frieza race I gave a name based on ice and I named my Buu Yuuna to keep the same sounds at the beginning. I had no idea what Au Ra names were like so I was on my own. I thought of Altos again and figured it was a fantasy enough sounding last name to use. I didn't have another name in mind so went with the first sounds that came to me for the first name. Ended up with Kessa. So I am Kessa Altos.

My sister didn't have time to play with me when I first started and there were things I had to do alone first so she told me to just get things ready. I had no idea what I was doing or how to work the game so I was really lost for a long time. This might sound bad, but it was actually a good thing. It forced me to learn how to do things on my own. I learned how to take quests, how to interact with things, how to attack, all that. Suddenly everything I had done in WoW and Legends of Equestria had made sense! I knew what I had been doing all that time ago! I knew what I was doing and why I was doing it. That helped me get things rolling and actually get invested in what I was doing instead of just following my sister around.

Now, I still have a ton to learn and my sister and her online friends have been a HUGE help with all of it. I probably would be as far along as I am without them. Also helped that I had some time off this last week so I've played a lot each day. I got into it and I've even started figuring out what the game is about. It's normal Final Fantasy story telling. It really doesn't explain itself well in the beginning so you have to get a ways in before anything makes sense.

I'm still learning mechanics and learning my role in a party. I'm really new at doing quests and raids with other players so I just hope I'm not slowing them down too much. My role is very "squishy," as my sister likes to put it, so when things go bad for me they can really go bad quickly. Somehow I've been able to figure things out though. A lot of story quests I have to fight by myself and NPCs. Even though I've failed a few times here and there, I've been able to figure things out and quite often I find a solution by myself. Still it's nice to have my sister and her friends as a safety net for when I need it.

So that's been my life this last week. This game and this game almost exclusively. I did manage to get a little more of Sheer Power Book 3 written. I wanted it finished by the end of February but didn't quite meet that goal. Aiming for mid March now. We'll see if I can pull myself away from this new game to make it!
