In-SAIN New Year’s Extravanganza 2016-2017 Notes Part 1

I’m still working on two other Sain-centric pieces that I meant to release yesterday, but until my writer’s block clears up I might as well release notes for the first two.

First off, the cover photo:

sain-new-years

The idea originally was to just paste Sain’s face over a picture of Jesus, but when I saw a picture of Jesus and seven disciples, I realized I could include all six women Sain has support conversations with… and Kent. Because you can’t have Sain without Kent. Yes, I know Sain and Kent also have support conversations with each other.

I admit these pieces are not my finest works, but frankly they’re not meant to be. I wrote them for merely for fun as a way to ring in the new year. Is that such a problem.


“Beauty And The Sain”

The fic takes little inspiration from “Beauty And The Beast”, but I thought the title worked nonetheless.

You were all expecting Sain to get his ass kicked, weren’t you? If that’s what you were hoping for, too bad.

My 25th fic special will most likely be Karel-centric.

If you look at the official art for every female character in FE7 from Sacae, and then from Lycia, you will know where Guy is coming from.

I mostly included Guy and Matthew because they are perfect sources for fun banter. In FE:CSR, they are both going to receive plenty of attention.

If you thought this was going to end in a kiss, Cormag, sorry to disappoint. I hope you enjoyed it anyway.


“Committed”

Considering the fic COOKIECHEESEMAN wrote that this is the sequel to was called “Commitment” (https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11070011/1/Commitment), I felt the title was appropriate.

You may have noticed this piece is a serious departure from my original style; this is because I was trying to imitate Cookie’s (with my own spin, of course).

Kent’s dream is based off of the single best Fire Emblem Fan Art I have ever seen. Here’s a link: https://wallpappercom.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/oyybafozq8callv3aannsktrbc0843.jpg

I don’t know what Cookie was thinking of when he wrote Lyn wearing a fancy, skin-tight, revealing dress, but I think of a teal version of what Sonia wears (http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/f/f1/Sonia.png/revision/latest?cb=20160622215548).

The part where Kent essentially breaks is a reference to a similar set of dialogue Sain shouted in “Commitment”, which was the first written line I had ever read that made me laugh.

The last sentence is a reference to the last sentence of “Commitment”.

Author’s Notes for The Love Masters

I’ve been looking forward to writing this one.

I wanted to include more characters, but I was somewhat pressed for time and couldn’t come up with anything for them.

I realize Sully doesn’t look remotely like Kent, but I figured it would be funny if I pretended she did.

In hindsight, I realize Fire Emblem fans may think I made Olivia seem like Severa, and (I believe) Anime fans may think I made her seem like a “Tsundere”. I, however, look at it from a psychologist’s standpoint: she’s going through classic denial, which is something plenty of people go through. Ergo, Olivia is not OOC.

Oh Lord did I have fun writing that last scene. In fact, I originally wrote it months ago, before I even knew what I was writing it for!
