| Dark Oracle chapter 24 . 6/27
Hah, I do recall that idea you once had about our characters being merely actors playing out our work as theater, like a performance. Nice throwback!
Congrats on the viewcount, you've done an excellent job, Cross, and I hope to keep reading!
| Dark Oracle chapter 23 . 6/2
Power invites challenge and adversity, and it is the nature of mages to seek power. Those who understand this arise to greater heights, controlling their ambition in order to achieve true power. Those who do not will often crash and burn amidst the wreckage of their ego and arrogance.
It is for that reason that reckless mages, concerned with showboating, are troublesome, but ultimately have far more in common with a match than they do with the proverbial loose cannon. Those who cannot control their willful nature burn out, useless and melted by the fires of their ambition...but those who harness their nature and tame it for their own ends? They evolve beyond the tiny flame of a match into a roaring wildfire, for good or ill...

Some wounds never heal, do they?
Cross will remember this mistake, hopefully, and become a better man and paladin for it.
| Dark Oracle chapter 21 . 4/27
Ah...and here we see the young Cross's utter loathing for all things draconian.
| WolfGoesBaa chapter 20 . 4/21
Woah, didn't even notice this new chapter until recently. The more I read about Ixis and Ellie, the more I love their pairing. They play off well off one another and are very funny.
So, I'm guessing the plan is to follow their journey through the World's Fangs or maybe have Cross and his party take up some of the parts?
| Dark Oracle chapter 20 . 4/2
Ixis certainly is a dour fellow, isn't he?
I imagine he and Cross will meet sooner rather than later...but I can't help but wonder what the Order thinks of having a Karakiri amidst their ranks, especially considering his parentage.
| WolfGoesBaa chapter 19 . 2/1
This is probably the funniest chapter so far. Ixis and Ellie play well off each other with Willie's talkative and friendly nature and Ixis' cold and quiet demeanor.
| Dark Oracle chapter 19 . 1/30
The end of one journey, and the start of another.
Ixis has much to learn, and a long path to tread.
| WolfGoesBaa chapter 17 . 1/25
Uhm... can anyone say cool? Boys staring creepily into the waters and raining fish guts. When this chapter began, I thought Ellie was going to die for sure with the number of death flags you planted with the whole - I'm going to be a Paladin and I'm so happy lines. It was almost unbearable... not her happiness but the suspicion that she was so close but she'd ultimately die for some dumb reason. But instead of death, you give us a cool character Ixis.

Vengeance is a terrible thing...even when well intended, it often causes great tragedy to those the perpetrator holds dear. Much like power, solely devoting one's life to the pursuit of revenge is to seek a wretched end.
Hopefully Kel will be able to find something more to live for, before his quest forces him to become the very thing he hunts...
| Kelvis K Fredericks chapter 13 . 1/22
I wanted to refrain from reading this honestly, because I knew it was just gonna break my heart. Cross you've done an excellent job so far with this it's a fun, not wordy and to the point. This reminds me so much of the old BMK. I don't know what's happened to me, it's like I'm censoring myself or some shit lately with my work. It's shit and I know by reading this.
Anyway I gotta get back to fixing that shit. Keep goin' ya passionate bass-tard! XD
| Dark Oracle chapter 17 . 1/21
Well, he knows how to show off, I'll give Ixis that much.
| WolfGoesBaa chapter 16 . 1/20
A wretched man who loves his 'family'. You've created an interesting villain here, who's on a collision course to our heroes... or at least Kel.
| Dark Oracle chapter 16 . 1/15
There's always consequences for a fight like that, and it looks like there's a lot of outside interest on current events that Kel and Cross might get mixed up in...
| Dark Oracle chapter 15 . 1/15
Everyone has their reasons for what they do, no matter how good or ill. The sadness is that often the best intentions of the best of people are brought about by tragedy, and may often lead to it.
