Chapter XI - Prisoner of Light
"Are you sure you want to do this?"
The man turned around. Standing in the doorway of a small, wooden house, an aged old man peered back at him with concern. As morning sunlight bathed the trees around him, the man nodded his head.
"I have to, Grandpa. It's the only way to protect you and the village."
Birds chirped. Morning dew glistened in the light. Gripping his sack, the man returned a sad smile toward the old man. In the shadow of the doorway, the man could hardly make out his features. The old man's voice, however, carried nothing but love, warmth, and concern.
"You've grown so much over these years. I wish your father were around to see you now. He would be so proud of you..."
Words passed through the old man's lips. The man blinked, unable to hear his name.
"You needn't worry about a thing. I may be old, but I can still protect this village. Now, you best get a

Chapter IX - Homecoming
Several weeks later...
Torrential rain poured on the streets of Castleton. Men raced through the town, shielding their heads with cloaks, pieces of paper, and whatever else they could find. Dark, grey clouds blanketed the sky. Within the central marketplace, the normal hustle and bustle of traders and merchants filled the air in hushed tones.
The people spoke in uneven tones, their eyes filled with fear and dread. Their monarch, the queen-in-waiting, had not returned from her trip to the Desert Temple. Rumors tore through the air, drowning out all reason.
"Her Highness has not returned."
"Did the shadow beasts...?"
"These are dark times we live in..."
"The soldiers are disappearing... the shadow beasts..."
"Spare a rupee, sir...?"
"Where is the Hero?"
"Why has he not come to our aid?"
"Are we fools to believe in the old legends...?"
"It can't be... the gods can be so cruel..."

Chapter VIII - Aftermath
The shadow gazed at the back of his left hand. Within him, the man pursed his lips in wonder at the golden mark. The memory, drawn out of the abyss of his being, etched itself into his consciousness.
The mark seemed so innocuous, so inconsequential until now. The man he remembered had thought so little of it. To him, it had been nothing more than a fluke of his birth. Now, that very same mark saved his life.
His eyes shifted toward the rest of his altered form. The golden power changed him. He felt different, stronger somehow, like a heavy shackle had broken away. A part of his mind, floundering in the dark, rose up, liberated from the shadows.
Yet he still could not remember much of his past. Worse still, he could not remember his name. He had to have a name. Beyond the promise that the identity of the Hero Eternal brought, he still did not know what that meant. Torn between man and shadow, he closed his eyes and dropped to one kne

Chapter VI - Inner Truth
Zelda's eyes glanced around at the beaten, bleeding bodies around her. Several of her men laid against the walls of the sanctum, clutching their wounds. The mages stood by, chanting healing spells to alleviate their pain. Choked cries filled the room, and Zelda found herself glancing down at the soldier attacked by the shadow.
"How is he?" She quietly asked the mage attending to him.
He looked up at her and shook his head.
"He's been drained of blood, my liege. As it currently stands, if we don't get him proper medical attention, he's not going to survive the night."
Zelda closed her eyes and paused. She knew that the shadow had not attacked him on purpose. Nezera, for the briefest moment, had him under her spell. Somehow, contact with the Triforce of Wisdom broke whatever hold she had over him. It did little, however, to assuage her guilt over the turn of events.
She opened her eyes and gazed into the mage's eyes once more.

Chapter II - Ghost of Memory
"No... No..."
The man thrashed against the bloodstained slab. Voices chanted around him, while candles burned in the darkness. A dark, feminine silhouette approached him. Red eyes peered out at him from the shadows.
His heart pounded in his chest. Energy hummed in the air. A woman's voice echoed from the horned silhouette. From out of the darkness, a sorceress, wearing a horned bone mask, approached him. The man's eyes fluttered, unable to focus or discern hallucination from reality.
"What... What are you... doing... to me...?"
Inhuman roars and screeches rang in his ears. Faces contorted and morphed between man and fanged beast. He pulled and tugged on the restraints. The feminine silhouette raised her hand. Purple energy pulsed from her fingertips. As a black mass gathered in her hand, the sorceress' cold voice joined in with the monotonous chanting around him.

Chapter IX - Link: Relentless Pursuit
Mobs of people stepped onto the train. Alex walked among them, holding a smartphone. Music played in her ears, drowning out the noise of the people coming and going from the train. Seeing no open seats, she grabbed a hanging strap.
"The doors are closing...," A recorded voice announced.
Moments later, the doors to the train automatically slid closed. With the ring of a bell, the MAX train took off. Alex glanced through a nearby window, taking in the lights of Portland. Behind her, a man rested his head against the window, his eyes closed and his mouth drooling.
A terrible stench filled the air. Alex's grabbed her jacket and pulled it over her mouth.
Oh god, not another one of these bums again. Why do they always have to sit behind me when I'm riding the MAX to Clackamas?
She glanced around. The MAX, filled to the brim with people, offered little opportunity for her to wait out her t

No One Cares About Your Story
GOOD NEWS: This is perfectly normal!
I can't remember the source, but a few years ago I read this famous author's account of how it felt to have his first book come out, and he mentioned buying a copy himself because he was afraid no one would take an interest. Now this is a guy who managed to get not only an agency but a publisher (which is a whole pile of people who were like yesplz), and he's still afraid readers won't care. I was like, 'whoa mind blown.'
But anyway, the fact is that we are all strangers on the Internet and, by default, there is no reason for you to read my stuff or vice-versa. If you went and stood in Times Square with copies of your latest story, how many people would give you more than a passing glance? And how many of those people would get to the end of your work, and how many of those would offer critical feedback?
And, if you were one of the passersby, whom would you stop for?
Okay, I'm done scaring the shi

Writing: Be Mindful of Your Self
As writers we often take parts of people we know, characters we like or even ourselves and place those parts into characters within our stories. This is the most common and easiest way to create characters however I do have a word of caution when creating a character inspired by or based fully on yourself.
Do not take it personally.
People might hate your character. They might look at your character that you've based on yourself and say: "This character sucks." That is not a reflection upon yourself, it is a reflection upon that character and their portrayal.
No matter how closely modeled a character is upon yourself there is always going to be some divergence from yourself and what you would be willing to do versus what your character is going to do.
Always maintain a degree of separation between yourself and your character, especially if it is your main character.
I freely admit that I am a coward in this regard. None of my primary characters are based on myself. The only character I

An Update and Some Laughs
So recently I said that I was going to discontinue my Star Wars writing for a little bit (a couple months) so I can concentrate on other material and hopefully clear myself of the stigma of Star Wars being a burden. However I realized that there is one Star Wars project that I do not need to abandon and can still share with you.
The reason for this is that the story in question is already finished.
I refer of course to Hades Wing. I published it ages ago on FanFiction and started to repost an edited version of it here on DA a few years back but stopped as things changed. However since all I am doing is editing and posting the story, I don't have any reason not to resume doing so.
Of course this means that the characters you've come to enjoy so much won't be appearing in their Star Wars guises in the near future, but you'll still get some of my Star Wars material and I hope you'll enjoy what there is.
And now for something completely different.
Everyone I think knows how little regard I

Shipwreck Shore
Waves crashed at the rocks and shipwrecks that were spread around this abadonded cove, the sounds resonating for miles. Apart from the ancient shipwrecks, other things were scattered on the shore, like skeletons, barrels, cannons, and other such old objects of the past. It was even rumored that this place was home to supernatural entities like the ghosts of sailors and even sea monsters, but no one ever had the heart to set foot to see if it was true or not. The moon shined above the shore in a brightly lit crescent.
The mood was perfect for a fight.
Thick footsteps came out of the shadows as a figure appeared. The figure was a man, dressed

So, in case anyone isn't aware, the PDF plugins for Firefox, as well as the 'built-in' PDF reader for that browser, is currently broken. Since there are issues with viewing PDFs on mobile!DA anyway, I have gone through and enabled PDF download for all of my chapters submitted as that document type. You might be wondering why I even went the PDF route in the first place. There are a couple of reasons for it, namely:

1. Sta.sh would often butcher my chapters, and add spacings in between words where a space was not present originally
2. Sta.sh would often just add spaces where ever it felt like anyway
3. DA does not like you submitting chapters with large word counts

To get around the issues, I began submitting my chapters as PDFs. Unfortunately, since browser developers just love to fix what isn't broken, I will not be using PDFs for future chapters of my works. Since I had decent luck with Sta.sh on the latest submission of Soulbound, I will be submitting my works as regular text once more. At some point, I may very well go back and resubmit all PDF chapters as regular text as well. That isn't something I'm likely going to do at the present time, as we're talking at least 15 chapters between the two fanfictions I'm working on.

If you guys have any tips/tricks to get around this silliness, I would love to hear it. For now, at least, you are able to download and read my previous chapters. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.

EDIT: I've gone through and resubbed all PDF chapters as regular text. You will have to refave all of the chapters you liked. I'm sorry, but it's not my fault DA will not let me change the document type of a submission.

Good news! I saved the covers!

Hooray!
The next chapter of Soulbound will be delayed. One of the harddrives on my desktop, specially where I keep all of my actual files, is failing on me. Right now, I'm doing what I can to salvage my files. Sorry about this, guys!
So, for anybody who might be interested, I have set up a forum and a shoutbox for the perusal of all my lovely watchers. Feel free to either ask me a question or say hello! :)
