Crossing the Divide 40

"What shall be her name?" The Rasiki asked with a smile on her face.

I had provided my House with good fortune this night. Now there were two more members of my line instead of just one. I had done well and had to think of a special name for this twin. I could name her Hisara after the Kaari ruler who had discovered ice dragons. I had her to thank for my own powers, my dragon, and Valonqar. But even though that would make the Rasiki happy I knew there was a different name to be chosen for her. I planned to go back to Daenerys when I could and I needed to send a message. So whatever I named my daughter would have to work for both my former queen and daughter.

"Rhaenys." I replied and there were gasps in the room. "Rhaenys was the only one of Aegon's sister-wives to die while attacking Westeros. When trying to conquer Dorne she found that she wasn't invincible. That revelation was at the cost of her life and her dragon's. I want my daughter's name to be a message for both herself and Daenerys Targaryen. I want both to know that no matter how strong they think they are, they can die. For my daughter it is a life lesson and for the Targaryen it is a warning. If Daenerys goes mad like her father and brother, she won't be able to escape punishment. She won't be able to escape death."

"You could choose an honorable name for that lesson." A Rasiki pointed out, his face fearful.

"I also wish to heal the divide between Kaari and Targaryens. I couldn't do that with a Kaari name."

Crossing the Divide 39

"So are you more competent than him?" The clone asked, tilting her head.

"Doctor Alexander Isaacs is competent enough." I replied, my face was devoid of any expression.

"Although he can be somewhat lacking when talking to people. He has even worse bed side manners."

"What happened to me?"

"All we know at the moment is that you were infected. You were randomly selected for testing of a cure for the t-virus."

"So you saved me out of the kindness of your heart?"

"I started the Mormonts to search for a cure and form a society to live. What's the point of surviving if there's nothing afterwards?"

I looked intently at the clone to see her reactions. I focused on everything about her. The slightest movement of her eyes, the human-zombie scent of her skin, the blood pumping through her veins, and everything else about her. So far she looked annoyed but didn't show any signs of being a malignant person. She didn't show any signs of wanting to cause harm. That didn't mean she wasn't here to harm my men, though, as the Alex clone had shown us. That clone hadn't been aware of his true purpose. He had only been afraid.

"Thank you." The clone said with a shrug.

"My name is Rin Isaacs, I'm the leader of the Mormonts." I told her.

"So that doctor is your father?"

There was no hint in her voice that she was joking. She honestly didn't know who I was which meant I wasn't important for whatever mission Wesker had sent her on. I didn't know what the Alex clone had known before being sent off. He might have known as little as the clone in front of me. Being a bomb didn't require one to be updated about current events. If the clone was programmed to get close to Alice with a romantic bond then it wasn't meant to gather information. She was an assassin.

"No, my husband." I told her.

Mini-Review: John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

I'm hoping to get more reviews out by doing this mini-review format. If I want to go into actual depth on this movie I'll do so via multi-vlog reviews or other posts.

In this review of John Wick: Chapter 2 there will be spoilers. So if you haven't seen the movie stop reading now and go see it before continuing.

New Batch of Dragons (Jash's Dragon Army)

On Dragon Cave I'm getting a little more serious about breeding more dragons so that there will be more options for future giveaways. So if I'm trying to breed one type of dragon I'll have more chances of actually successfully getting the type I'm aiming for.

If you want me to personally breed a pair for you when not doing a giveaway, comment below.

Here are the new dragons this time around:

Intricacies of the Azor Ahai Prophecy

While working on the Rin Duology series I've become more familiar with the Game of Thrones universe. Partially because I have been binging YouTube videos explaining the vast lore of the series (both tv show and books) and when writing you can't help but become more familiar with things. Sometimes when writing you understand a character more or understand a certain setting better.

One of the things in my fic that I had to deal with at some time was the Azor Ahai Prophecy. As I plan to go all the way to the war with the White Walkers, it isn't something I can avoid. When I decided to cover the prophecy in my fic I decided to add twists and turns so it wouldn't be clear what was going on.

Such as Azor Ahai wouldn't be Daenerys or Jon. Also each element of the prophecy would add to bigger themes in the fic. Such as Azor Ahai becomes a sign that a character has been redeemed while Nissa Nissa is a discussion about romantic versus platonic love.

But I don't want to bore the people not reading my fic and I'm betting some of you are confused about who Azor Ahai and Nissa Nissa are. You might also be wondering why the prophecy is a big deal and how it's connected to the White Walkers. Finally, you might be wondering why this prophecy isn't clear cut.

So let's waste no more time and get started...

Crossing the Divide 38

"If you don't want to help me rule then you shall die." Viserys said.

"You can't kill her." Jorah reminded him. "She was second only to Ser Arthur Dayne as the best swordsman of Westeros."

"Lord Eddard Stark managed to kill the Sword of the Morning. I'm sure if a Stark can kill a great swordsman, so can I."

"And if she wins everything you've done will mean nothing."

"Do you really care or do you want to keep f****** her?"

In my home reality Viserys had died in Vaes Dothrak. This was a different time, though, which meant it wouldn't ruin anything if I killed him now. Pushing my rage away, I got off of my horse and watched it walk a short distance away. It would've gone further but a few Dothraki managed to stop it. The next thing I did was remove Alexander from its sheath. There were a few gasps from those that recognized Valyrian steel. I hadn't had any need to use it since joining the herd. Well, not until now.

"Where did you get that?" Viserys hissed and I could hear the jealousy in his voice.

"I went to the Rasiki and took this from them." I said loudly. "They are excellent magic users but not invincible. This blade is their most precious treasure. They hold to the belief that there is still one Kaari out there. A belief that will never be shattered by reason. Viserys Targaryen, if you truly do want to fight me know that I will kill you with Alexander, my name for the Kaari ancestral blade."

Travels of Artictress: Jash of the Unova Region Entry #6 (White Version 2)

Entry #6: It's Cold Outside

I was kicked out of my house by my own mother at age ten. To me this is just another fact of life and something that doesn't make it hard for me to sleep. All trainers are kicked out of their houses at age ten to learn the art. The craft that is so important to the world. Some kids, of course, aren't forced out and become the regular people I meet along my journeys. At age eighteen this is more than comfortable to me. What has happened recently has made it a little hard for me to sleep.

Crossing the Divide 37

"Jane Doe, you are brought in front of the Kaari for a proposition." I said. "We have an idea where cloning facilities are and can't waste the manpower to destroy them all."

Alex looked at Jane as a direwolf would look at its prey. In his eyes alone he seemed like he was about to pounce. Khaleesi and Jane looked uneasily at each other. My daughter didn't want to appear rude and yet was still suspicious about the other clone. K-Mart was the calmest among us.

"So you want me to convince Alice to attack some for you." Jane said, not needing us to tell her what we wanted. "You're asking me to work for you and not her, in other words."

"We both have the same end goal." Alex said. "Umbrella can't be allowed to mass produce like it could. It might not just be me that is cloned but other former Umbrella members that have sided with the Mormonts."

"They could make more of me."

"Of course they could. If they wanted to infiltrate our or Alice's ranks they could make even more clones of her."

In Jane's eyes I saw this mission become more personal for her. Alex was the only one of himself while Jane knew what being a clone was like. Both would have more fears about more of them being made than I would. At least she was used to being around other clones daily.

"Then we do have the same end goal." Jane replied. "Alice would see it that way. She wouldn't want herself being abused anymore than she already has been."

Coming Undone Giveaway (Flight Rising)

Update: The giveaway is over. Thanks to everyone that participated. Maybe you were a member of Flight Rising and this giveaway made you a fan of my blog. Or maybe you're a fan of my blog who has suddenly learned about Flight Rising. If you're the latter, keep on the lookout for the next registration window.

If you are a member of Flight Rising and can't wait until my next giveaway to get dragons from me, you can always check out the Auction House and my Dragon Shop for dragons I'm selling.

I also do nest rentals and lend out my cauldron.

If you want to find out more about my clan, feel free to check out my dragons' journals and the clan's facebook page.

And, hey, if you want to start a long discussion about fanfictions feel free. If you want to buy things related to your favorite fandom for yourself, friends, and family click on the ad at the bottom of my post. Doing this you will help support my blog as well as getting neat stuff for yourself and others.
 
I like to write fanfiction as anyone that reads my blog can clearly tell. Some I like to have fun with and...yeah...those can get odd as funny to me sometimes means...well if you have read those fics you'll know. Others I like to spend time and effort on. I feel canon can be messed with as long as a good story is told.

With the release of Fifty Shades Darker approaching, the fact that that is what most people think fanfiction is makes me a little upset. Yes, there are people that write fics like that or worse but there are also lots of other fanfic writers that actually write well. And actually write good sex scenes with compelling characters unlike the Fifty Shades trilogy.

Those fanfictions you can read for free and only waste time if you don't like them. Plus some of them deserve to be on the big screen. I don't read much fanfiction as my workload and all, but I have read a few that would make a good movie or tv series.

In my quest to give back to my loyal blog readers, here's another giveaway. This time I'm giving away dragons (I know, shocking) from the site Flight Rising. Unlike Dragon Cave, you can't sign up at any time but have to wait for a registration window. Go to the HOME PAGE of Flight Rising to check when the next registration window is. Even if you can't make this giveaway, you can participate in future ones. I am jashykins on the site.

Now this giveaway is running a little differently than my Dragon Cave one due to how breeding is done on Flight Rising. The number of dragons I give away each time is dependent on how many eggs are produced in the 'giveaway nest'. I have selling my dragons in the Auction House and Exalting others as part of my income on the site. Losing a little here and there is fine, but doing constant giveaways is a no no.

This time I am giving away two dragons. The parents are KyloRen and Cassie.

Below are listed the rules of this giveaway:

Crossing the Divide 36

"But don't you want to see House Targaryen on the throne again?" Daenerys asked. "To take revenge with fire and blood?"

"I want our House to have a good ruler on the Iron Throne. I will not be responsible for another mad king."

Daenerys seemed disappointed and I wondered when her longing for the Iron Throne really took place. I couldn't see a ruler in her eyes but I saw a strong woman nonetheless. She wanted House Targaryen back in what she would consider its proper place. Even if she couldn't lead she wanted her House to continue. She might not fully trust Viserys but she thought he had the right idea.

"How do you know Ser Jorah?" Daenerys asked.

I almost replied with the answer in my home reality. I was about to say that I rescued her from Daario and when I arrived at the Raqus estate he was there. I was about to say how he came to my chambers that night and f***** me. I was about to tell her how he was the first man to f*** me. But that wasn't the case here and there was now a different answer.

"I saw him at the Tourney at Harrenhal." I replied. "We only looked at each other."

"I thought it was something more." Daenerys replied. "It seemed like you were lovers at one point. You didn't talk to each others as mere acquaintances."

Crossing the Divide 35

"You haven't spoken much." Alex said and I turned to see him enter the tent.

"Daenerys betrayed me." I told him. "I lost Jeor. There is not much use for words anymore."

Alex sat on the edge of the cot and ran a hand through my hair. His simple touch calmed me and I shut my eyes. For a blessed moment it was as if everything was perfect. That all the pains of the world had gone away and left me in peace. I had been surviving on these moments for the past few days. Holding onto them as if my life depended on them. Maybe it did now. Maybe this was the pain I would feel until I died centuries from now.

"Do you know what I thought when I first saw you?" Alex asked and I opened my eyes to look into his. "I knew you were different than anything I had seen before. I knew you would mean more for me but I didn't know what that meant. I hadn't yet experienced those feelings so how could I? You turned out to be one of the bravest people I had ever met."

"I'm not brave." I told him. "I was broken and I ran."

"You gave me another chance after everything I did. If that's not bravery, what is? You will find your strength and you will defeat Daenerys."

"I don't know if I want to. I saved her life and in return...she unleashed every hell in existence. I sacrificed myself for a woman who deserved no mercy."

I had run away from my fears. As my anguish took hold of me I realized I had been running for a very long time. After my pack died I hadn't been strong enough to carry on and form a new family. There were direwolves that had been more than ready to follow me. I had run away from the kindness of the Raqus family, for the most part, as living that life was scary to me. When I had made love to Jorah for the first time I had run away to a new reality. It was scary but I hadn't had to deal with the fear of falling in love for the first time. Now when Daenerys had betrayed me I had run away to a different sort of reality in Essos. I didn't understand it, not yet, but I thought of spending my life there. As long as I didn't have to face the reality where my former queen betrayed me.

"I know what it's like being a coward." Alex said. "And you are not one."
