Well, it’s the end, Goodbye.

I can’t believe, it’s all over. My beloved journey has already came to an end. Sixty three days, just sixty three days, and one hundred and one post. It’s over, yes, it’s all over. The Den of Dreams has collapsed. The Dragon Warrior is defeated.

I have never so cold while writing ever. Even though it’s 27 degree Celsius outside, I am cold. Very cold. My fingers are colder than they have ever been. I am feeling a shiver all around me. Dread. Fear. Tension. Despair.

For the first time in my entire blogging journey, I dreaded opening my laptop. My laptop. The beloved portal to the Den of Dreams. For the first time, I was shaking so much. So much of fear, so much of nervousness.

It’s all over. I can’t see you again. I can’t read your wonderful words. I can’t view through your eyes. I can’t express my gratitude anymore. I can’t share my views. I can’t share my pain. I can’t share my laughs. I can’t cherish the precious moments whenever one of you liked me, talked with me and joined in my journey.

I don’t know if anybody would miss me. Maybe yes, maybe not. Maybe you would secretly be happy that I left. But I would certainly miss you. More than any words can explain. I would miss our each and every moments together.

I wanted to do so many things before bidding my goodbye. I wanted to thank everyone of you. I wanted to write a letter to my beloved “elder sister” Nina, I wanted to talk with Lily of the Virgo, I wanted to visit Lumis with Elyan White, I wanted to discuss cricket with Ink ’em Down, I wanted to ask Sheree about her travels, I wanted to read all of your answers, I wanted Alex Carey to see my blog once, I wanted to celebrate my birthday with you, I wanted to create my own award on WordPress, and a hundreds and thousands of things. I wanted to stay with you forever. So many dreams in the Den of the Dreams. But now as the Den collapses, all the dreams are buried deep, deep inside.

It’s the end, I know. And standing in the dying light of the dusk, shivering with fear of losing you all, I feel quite fearless as well. I can tell anything I want without having the fear to lose anything else.

So, let me say something that I always wanted to shout out: “Haters are going to hate, but for their scorns, I will never change myself! I will follow my own path, even if it means standing up alone!”

And yes in my journey so far I have learned something important: “Blogging is not all utopia. You can get hurt as well.”

And I also wanted to speak out to my favourite bloggers for the last time…

Sheree, you would always be my beloved! I can never forget my gratitude to you! You have let me touch the stars of my dreams. Please do keep coming in my dreams!

Tatterhood, you were my very first friend in the blogging world and always close to my heart. I know, just today morning, I promised you I’d be there with you always and now I have to leave.

Renee, you were, you are, and always would be deep, deep down in my heart. I can never forget your kindness and compassion and care you had given me.

Nina, you are my true figure of courage and inspiration. If there is one light that never fades, that’s you. You are the very flame of goodness that can never be extinguished. Your little sister Mira has to leave now, though.

Crimson, you are the very best teacher my journey has brought me to. Always an ocean of knowledge, and showing me the path I should go. You brought the world to my eyes.

Elyan White, you are my beloved and I daresay my bestfriend in blogging world. I loved suggesting. I really wanted to visit Lumis. I am so sorry to disappoint you like this.

And at last, I bid my apologies to anyone I had offended or had by chance put in discomfort. I really had not mean to. I am so sorry.

And thank you for all those three hundred and thirty one people who had been with me in my journey.

Parting are always hard I know but never have I cried so much at leaving someone since the age of 11, when my previous best friend left.

The days ahead look very empty indeed. I would miss you all from the deepest of my core.

And the last words, about my name. I know, and I am blessed to have so many nicknames all around the world. Ms. Warrior from Jessica E Larsen, Mira from my beloved Nina, and Sophie for most of you. I am sorry, I can never reveal my true name, but my favourite thing to call myself is Shizen, which means nature.

I am so sorry that I can’t tell you the reason for parting. It’s painful, for me and I really don’t want to speak it out.

It’s a long tiring post, I know, and I had been hyper emotional. But well, it’s all over. Thank you so much for being with me.

Goodbye!

Yours always,

Dragon Warrior (yes, my nickname to myself, Shizen)

An Invitation

An Invitation

M’ladies and m’lords, here I am again. I have had the luckiest opportunity to visit a distant, faraway land called Lumis, by the one and only Elyan White.

It is, yes I confess, my first inter-stellar travel, and I am indeed in a silvery light. I am waiting here, at Raisen Port. I thank you deeply, m’lady, for having me.

The Adventurer’s Guide To Cygnet: Part 2

So here our journeys continue in the hills and vales of Cygnet. I am coming a long way back, and then, there’s the charming guide of Lumis as well by Elyan White. Really, nothing can beat such a collaboration! 🙂

We both agreed on a set of questions to create a visitor’s guide for passing tourists, so you’re welcome to embark on our adventures with us, if you think you can make the journey.

Elyan White

Here we go again!

6. Your favourite local legend there?

Oooh, legends! Our Quya Zkyeatto mythology is filled lots of myths and legends about perhaps each and every topic. There’s the Artist, the Dragon Boy, the Beetle Bard, the Rebel and so on!

I don’t know the legends of other cultures yet, but my favourite among ours is The Warrior’s Tale. It’s a tale about Homura, a Whatou prince, born physically weak about an ocean of courage and determination. He proves to us, that to become a warrior, you don’t have to kill, but to protect. He dies at the mere age of 12 but has a deep impact on every Quya’s mind.

7. Any unique creature there?

Hundreds and thousands! Each community has an array of mythical creatures… Well, I am not very much aware of others, but for us Zkyeatto, there’s a Kayoui (a weird cross between Werewolves and Vampires, I guess), the Ijins (small underwater creatures) and obviously the Dimyou (creatures who live in Lands of Death, unfortunately one of my closest friend is one such guy, Haruoeh? Did I just say close? No, he is not, not, not! *blushes*) “-”

8. A great mystery of your world?

Cygnet is shrouded in mystery. The most trending one among the Zkyeatto is the existence of those portals. Portals, yes, those odd creepy portals that can lead you to anywhere and everywhere in the universe. You may land in Eternal Frost Land (like Gou did) or Fluorine Kingdom, or where your wildest fancies take you. Remember, in Cygnet, anything can happen….

But personally, I am in doubt, how in the whole wide world Haruo has come from Dimyou Land to our neighbourhood and why is he always teasing me like that and peeping in my dreams and thoughts.

9. The most dangerous place there?

The portals, of course. No one knows where they can lead to, and if there’s a road leading back.

But to me, the most dangerous place is anywhere Haruo is. Awkward, isn’t he?!

10. Are there many different religions there?

Many! But the major religions are the communities I told earlier about.

A big thank you to everyone reading this and joining us!

Have a happy Sunday! ❤

The Adventurer’s Guide: Cygnet

This is the most amazing and exciting event in my entire journey through the Den of Dreams: A collaboration with the one and only Elyan White, the awesome author from Phantasmagorium and Lumis. Here is her tale from Lumis, a very interesting place, residing among the stars. And to believe that Tatsuya can tour there!

We both agreed on a set of questions to create a visitor’s guide for passing tourists, so you’re welcome to embark on our adventures with us, if you think you can make the journey.

Elyan White

1. The meaning of your world. Why do you think it was given?

Cygnet. The Child of Swan.

Well, there are hundreds and thousands of name by which people call our planet but perhaps every name translates more or less into “Swan Child”. Here is a common legend about the origin that one day, on 36 Summer, Year of Turquoise Dragon (in Earth calender, 26 June 2019) I heard.

2. How did your world start?

Legends vary place to place, and from people to people. Here are a few theories I collected from my school friends of Cygnet:

Haruo: With fire of course, man.

Rin: Hmm, certainly not something I’d know! Why don’t ye go an’ check the origin stories, eh?

Edaeda: Oceans, rivers, seas and water.

3. What are the major communities?

There are three major communities in Cygnet, each with its own history, myth, culture, food, drinks and languages. There are other tribes of course, and so are other sub groups.

  • Ykeadjnn: (pronounced ki-a-jin) They are the natives of the planet and cover about 70 percent of the population. Golden haired, big eyed, they live by the coasts, worship water, moon, and lord Yakae.
  • Euclonic (pronounced Eu-klo-nik) They are present around 19 per cent of the population. Highly technical, adaptive, diplomatic, they live in very cold areas where snow never melts. They can speak an Earth language: English.
  • Zkyeatto (pronounced za-ki-e-to) They are present around 7 percent of the population, and are often conflicting with Ykeadjnn. Dark eyed, shrouded in mysteries and legends, they live by the hills, worship nature, sun, and the fire. Two sub-groups include the creative, emotional Quya (pronounced Ku-ya) and the fiery and galiant Ywaya (pronounced ya-ya). {I am a Quya Zkyeatto, by the way 😉 }

4. One line to describe your world?

Anything and everything is possible.

5. Your favourite place to tour in your world?

Many, many, many! I love touring in the medieval ages of Mhokaizi (pronounced Ho-kai-zi) empires, Whatou (pronounced Wa-ha-to) and Tuorin empires, and playing around our school in Linnet Town. Warrior’s Land, where Quya Zkyeatto people go after death is an interesting place too… 😉

Well, our journey is not over yet, there continues our path to Cygnet…

A big thank you to everyone reading and joining us! ❤

The Questions

Have you ever read the book of Harry Potter or seen the movie of it? If yes, who is your favorite character?

Dragon Warrior: I have read The Philosopher’s Stone, but well… I am sorry to all Potterheads, didn’t like it at all 😦 I won’t read another Harry Potter book, ever. But Ginny Weasley is quite nice.

Tatsuya: I’m from Cygnet, m’lady, so a bit faraway from books of Earth.

If you like a girl/ boy how you would approach him/ her? If you are married then, tell what you would do if you are not married?

Dragon Warrior: Umm… very hard question, for I’ve never have experience like this 😦 Perhaps I would try my best to stay normal and not blush too much.

Tatsuya: There’s already a guy there, m’lady, and I approach him everyday. My senior actually. I am 15 year old prince, he’s a 22 year old writer. I’ve already confessed and he’s a guy to shy in front of me. Just be like the breeze. Frank and steady.

Your friends find you which type of person?

Dragon Warrior: Certainly not the one I seem from outside.

Tatsuya: Just like the breeze, m’lady. And the female friends call me “Prince Charming” like I said. *I am the most popular guy in my class*

Do you want to own a dream house or dream car? Choose one!

Dragon Warrior: Dream house

Tatsuya: Actually none, m’lady. I have a huge palace at a number of places and I can teleport to any place.

Do you believe in aliens?

Dragon warrior: Certainly, I am one myself.

Tatsuya: Yes, m’lady, I have talked with many a earthling myself.

Why do you follow my blog?

Dragon Warrior: Because you are a very friendly and cheerful girl 🙂

Tatsuya: You are quite amazing, m’lady.

Why should I follow your blog?

Dragon Warrior: That’s something I would like to hear from you… 🙂

Tatsuya: Well, m’lady, my blog still hasn’t come to Earth.

Any one thing which you want to eradicate from this world?

Dragon warrior: The concept of countries

Tatsuya: The concept that “Girls will love guys and guys will love girls” C’mon, let’s think out of the box. Why so stereotypes? Who says a prince has to love a princess? A prince with a prince, for me.

You are in a new to a place and you do not know the people of that area very well. You went to a restaurant and when you were about to pay bill, you found that you have no money and no phone! What would you do to pay the bill?

Dragon Warrior: Credit card

Tatsuya: Teleport to my house and return back with precious gems.

What do you like more- sunrise or sunset? Choose XD.

Dragon warrior: Since I can’t get up very quickly, sunset

Tatsuya: Sunrise, m’lady.

Okay, a simple question:

Suppose you are a police officer. You have a best friend with whom you have spent last 10 years and many good moments. One day, in a mission you got to know that he is a criminal. Were you will be able to kill him?

Dragon Warrior: No, never. I can never kill my best friend.

Tatsuya: No, m’lady, we are more loyal than anything. Our culture says loyalty first and then comes other things.

Writer’s First-Aid Kit

A wonderful trove of ideas about conquering Writer’s Blog by the talented writer, Elyan White.

Phantasmagorium

“Elyan, I think I have Writer’s Block. Do you have anything to relieve my symptoms?”

“Sure, right here in my Writer’s Medicine Cabinet. Let me just reach in here and–“

“Oh my God, what is all that? I need inspiration, not life-shattering creative enlightenment.

Well, too bad.

Phantasmagorium may have a Prompt Cellar, but the there are plenty of good writing holes around the Internet. So here’s a cellar of other peoples’ prompt cellars.

Prompts

If you’ve got your eye out for some good writing prompt resources, my personal favorites have always been Seventh Sanctum and Writing Prompts That Don’t Suck. Of course, Prompt Guy is always a classic, too. The Writer’s Digest posts neat, engaged story-starters as well.

Speaking of classics, for anyone who’s never seen the Mary Sue Litmus Test, it’s over on Springhole with a bunch of other prompt generators, character makers, and worldbuilding articles…
