Forgotten Flame -- Chapter 5: Ruthless
Flame spent the better part of that day sitting at the edge of the plaza, watching the other residents come and go. She got up once to fetch a modest lunch from the Center's kitchens, then returned to her spot with it and ate alone. Her mind was racing, too occupied with what was happening internally to pay much attention to what was going on externally.
Your past. Those two final words from the night before seemed to carry so much more meaning, hiding something underneath like fresh snow on a bed of flowers. She had lost her past in a metaphorical sense by losing her memories, but that couldn't be it. In the dream's own words, she lost her self but her past was more than that. After hours of contemplation, this was the only conclusion that Flame was able to reach. She had to find something she had lost. And she was close.
Once she decided there was nothing more to gain from sitting around and thinking, Flame stood up. It was early in the afternoon, and the square was nearly emp

Forgotten Flame -- Chapter 4: Lonely
Immediately after their conversation (or, rather, immediately after the ten seconds of contemplative silence that followed it), Serenade mumbled a goodbye and floated away towards home, leaving Flame to wonder just what could have happened to her that would prompt this reaction. Someone important to her had left her, obviously, but Flame wasn't sure Serenade's last remark had been about the four Pokémon she had mentioned. But whoever it was, whatever had happened, this subject seemed to be something better left unmentioned in the future.
It took very little time for Flame for make her next decision. She turned around and walked directly towards the Center, cutting across the middle of the square. She caught a few glances from the remaining spectators, all of whom were now having their own conversations. None of them bothered with a second glance; to them, Flame was just another visitor.
The only other Pokémon in the Center's lobby was a rather bored-looking Sylveon behind the

Forgotten Flame -- Chapter 3: Careful
Considering that it had only been half an hour at most since she had left his house, Flame thought it very odd that Requiem would already be in a fight. And yet there he was, locked in combat with a snow-white-furred opponent who clearly intended not to pull any punches. It was a close match, but it seemed at first glance that Requiem was actually on the losing side.
Flame had already worked her way to the front of the crowd. The audience had reached a size where it was better for onlookers to fan outward than to form another row, so it was beginning to look like a single ring with Requiem and his foe at the center. This meant that Flame only had to nudge past a few others in order to get a good view, something she was a little jealous Serenade didn't have to bother with.
Luckily, Serenade was just beside her, staring intently at the ongoing battle. It was hard to make out her expression, but it was easy to see that she didn't want to miss a single moment. It didn't even look like she

Forgotten Flame -- Chapter 2: Curious
Flame had seen villages before. She knew this very well. She had seen everything from small campsites to sprawling metropolises. And yet somehow this little settlement surprised her. Somehow it seemed to mean something to her – not a sense of familiarity, but a sense of loss. How long had it been since she saw an actual house? Let alone an entire neighborhood? Of course, the answer never came. Somewhat dejected, she tilted her gaze down to her feet, only to find that her feet had already begun walking. A quick glance back upward revealed that Serenade was floating lazily alongside her at eye level, considering her carefully. Due to the pronounced difference in height, this meant that Serenade was constantly hovering two feet above the ground, but this didn't seem to be a bother.
Without either of them breaking stride (or, in Serenade's case, the ghostly, levitational equivalent thereof), Serenade put on a smile and turned forward again. "So anyway, Flame," she announced with a ge

Forgotten Flame -- Chapter 1: Lost
She awoke with a start, as if from a nightmare. She blinked a few times, then sat up and took a short glance around her.
Oh. This again.
The room was, of course, entirely unfamiliar to her, which she had grown to expect. It was her own reaction that really surprised her. Fear or confusion would have been natural, but this sort of bemused resignation didn't make any sense. She felt that waking up like this in a room she had never seen before had recently become a common occurrence, though she couldn't recall the last time it had actually happened.
She decided it would be best to stand up and explore her surroundings. The room was quite simple, really – walls and floor made of wood paneling, a single door to her left, and a single window to her right. The bed she sat on was more like a large round cushion or pillow than an actual bed, and she very nearly pierced it with her talons as she pushed herself to her feet. A second, smaller cushion lay against the opposite wall, tho

Pencil-Lead Getaway Trail
I go leaving the world behind in the dust to be eaten by the stress that dust is,
every shedding of dead skin turned white and expired from my shaking body.
 
Am I shaking or am I making up the quaking and faking,
mistaking this undertaking as liberation when instead it is delusional.
 
Down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass,
every Lewis Carrol madness delirium cliché in the book,
yet here I am acknowledging the cliché but not altering it,
so the tightrope between brilliance and lethargy wavers,
but I accept falling down because I will slow near the bottom and featherly land on a tiptoe,
balancing on the clock face at the apex and the eye of the storm.
 
Sprawling falling bawling stalling calling appalling,
how many miles would an unwound brain encompass?
Writhing within stars and planets and whole living worlds like a coliseum or wrestling ring.
 
Is it called grey matter because it is an in-between thing?
Transitory territory, as it would be.

I write poetry sometimes, and I'll occasionally try my hand at a short story. I'm also in the (slow) process of teaching myself how to draw.

I spend most of my free time playing video games or watching people play video games. My favorite game series by far is Pokémon, so expect the majority of my gallery to be Pokémon-related. :D

I'm on a few other websites (FurAffinity, for example) under the same username as here, but I'm most active here on DA. I also have a YouTube channel, where I go by "bohric" and do a lot of LPs that almost nobody watches. I'm also "bohric" on Steam, Reddit, and pretty much anywhere else.

I don't mind the near lack of attention too much, though. I mean, I mind, but I try not to let it get in the way. Whether it's writing, drawing, or gaming, I keep at it because I have fun doing it. Making things other people like and getting advice on how to improve are just extra perks.

If anyone cares, I went back into my files and used :iconryuseihikari:'s picture as a reference to update Argent's... well, reference. He did her hair better, so I tried to mimic it. I think she looks pretty good now, actually. Her new hairstyle is much nicer than her previous one, which I will readily admit was a piece of crap.

Argent's reference: here
Ryusei's pic (for comparison): here
Reference: Argent (now with correct hairstyle)
So... how did I do?
"Well, you obviously cheated when you made that Breath of the Wild shirt."
Yes, I grabbed the pattern off Google and bent it around a bit.
"And my hair looks a little weird."
I've never drawn hair before. I did my best.

(EDIT: Thanks, :iconryuseihikari:, for the new hairstyle!)
"But aside from those, I'd say... not bad for a writer-slash-computer-scientist."
I'm just happy I came close.
"You and me both."



Full name: Argent Reyes (Last name wasn't my idea. I swear the random name generators are all psychic.)
Species: Feline humanoid (loosely based on the margay)
Sex: Female
Age: 22
Height: 5'8" (172 cm)
Weight: 135 lbs (61 kg)
Measurements: 33B-26-34, more or less
Build: Slender, athletic. (She's based on a tree cat, after all.)
Fur color/pattern: Light gray, with dark gray rosettes. Belly, chest, and muzzle are white. Tail has black bands and tip; backs of ears are black with one white circular spot in the center of each.
Hair color/style: Black, short bob
Eye color: Dark blue (Was previously going to be violet but that seems to be surprisingly common, so let's bump it down a notch for the sake of variety.)
Other physical feature notes: Tail is approximately 4' long. Hands have five digits each, four fingers and one opposable thumb. No fingernails; retractable claws extend from the tips of the fingers and thumbs. Feet are digitigrade and look and act basically the same as a cat's hind paws. Pads on toes and balls of feet, like actual felines, but no pads on heels or hands.
Attire: Usually just shorts and a T-shirt, but she'll wear a jacket and longer pants if it's cold. Always barefoot; she hates shoes and everything shoes stand for, and that's not just because comfortable digitigrade footwear hasn't been invented yet. ("For all you humans who don't know what it's like: try wearing a pair of sneakers over a pair of six-inch heels. That's probably close.")

Likes: exploring new places, trying new things, puzzles and riddles, console and PC gaming (mostly adventure games and RPGs), staying up late, light bondage (when it's on her own terms, which it usually isn't)
Dislikes: being bored, long conversations (because they're boring), having to do things she doesn't want to do (because that's boring), formal occasions (seeing a pattern yet?), broken promises, shoes

Bio:
Argent is sassy, sarcastic, and free-spirited. She prefers situational irony to actual jokes, which is why many people think she has no sense of humor. She's quite intelligent but has a very selective memory and usually a very short attention span. Once something manages to hold her attention, though, it would be extremely unwise to try to bother her.
Because of all of this, Argent is always seeking new adventures and getting into trouble in imaginative ways. She insists that her (mis)adventures are all accidental, but it's fairly obvious to literally everyone that most of them are purposefully guided by her two favorite phrases: "this might be fun" and "let's see what happens." And if she can manage to bring home some sort of tiny souvenir afterwards, even better.
This constant search for excitement has molded the rest of her life to fit it. She has no steady occupation, preferring to change to a new part-time job every month or so to keep things interesting. Every now and then she'll even pack up her favorite possessions and spend some time in a whole different town. Yet she always ends up returning home because, and I quote, "I start to miss all the stuff I didn't bring." Through a combination of part-time work and pawning any rarities she finds during her latest escapades (and often some of the souvenirs from the old ones as well), she manages to live a modest lifestyle.
Until she blows her life savings on video games.
Again.

Because I'm lazy and this is an easy cop-out and I don't know how to write these sorts of interactions anyway ("But at least you have the courage to admit it."), Argent is bisexual but prefers men to women.

(The following is something that I will definitely use. I like this idea too much to let it go. It won't be a huge thing, but it will be a thing.)
Argent has a complex set of intuitive skills, most of which are unconscious, that cause her to enter a state of hyperawareness that's probably triggered by the adrenaline rush of the fight-or-flight response. In simpler terms, being in danger kicks her brain into overdrive. She starts unconsciously pulling in every ounce of sensory input she can, forming a mental image of the most dangerous and most likely outcome(s) of the current situation. The more danger she's in, the more accurate her "visions." Most of the time, they aren't even visions; they're just nagging feelings that she's doing something that will put her in more danger, with the occasional suggestion of what actions she should be taking instead. But if she's severely injured, or has a gun to her head, or something similarly stressful, her brain will be running so fast that she might as well be seeing ten seconds into the future. At least until she passes out from the mental strain.
Of course, whatever it is she sees she can do, she still has to do it. Knowing what to do in a pinch doesn't help if you aren't skilled enough to pull it off on the first try. But sometimes even knowing that a certain option exists can be all she needs, and it's helped her survive some pretty incredible odds.
But she has a rather morbidly vivid imagination. Sometimes she gets carried away playing through the most perilous scenarios in her head. Especially if one possible outcome has her dying in some strange and spectacular fashion, her attention typically gets drawn to the most interesting outcomes, not necessarily the most likely ones. It's kind of like Where's Waldo – once you find him, you stop looking, which means you miss out on all the other clever things they hid in the picture.



"They say curiosity killed the cat. But they also say cats have nine lives. So... where does that leave me?"

"Okay, look. I've been through a lot. I've been tied to poles, chairs, trees, rocks, walls, floors, and ceiling beams. I've run into creatures with too many limbs, creatures with not enough limbs, and creatures with exactly the right number of limbs but no idea how to use them. I've been knocked out, drugged, and hypnotized, and that was all in the same evening. One time I even spent a couple of days as a stone statue – and don't ask me how that works, 'cause I still don't know. I've basically seen it all at this point. And you're just standing there behind me with a pocketknife and a roll of duct tape? You're boring. I'm leaving."

"I can think of seventeen different ways this fight could go, and I get my ass kicked in every single one of them. I am never playing Street Fighter again. Ever. You wanted me to try it, I tried it. Now gimme back my Zelda cart."
Loading...
Decided I'd do one for Argent. Just because.
(Guess I'm not going to sleep yet. Definitely after this, though.)

(Nobody actually tagged me. If it matters, the last one I read was :iconspiritdrag:'s, which he did two months ago. Sorry if I'm stealing your thunder or whatever, since you didn't tag me because you probably don't know I exist. Just ignore me.)



1. OC Name: Argent
Reference: Argent (now with correct hairstyle) by ReySilverskinWhere'd I go wrong this time? (colored) by ReySilverskin
The second one was done by someone who actually knows what he's doing, so it might be a bit more useful.

2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your OCs. Obviously.

3. Tag people to do this meme! I'd rather not right now, since I don't think I have any friends who'd want me to tag them.



1.What is your name ?

"My name's Argent. Full name is Argent Reyes, but nobody uses my last name. Which is fine by me."

2.Do you know why you were named that ?

"My creator ReySilverskin was sort of basing it off his own username. 'Argent' came from the 'silver' part. 'Reyes' came from a random name generator, and he kept it because of the 'Rey' part. That's the official answer. The answer I like to give, though, is that I'm named after the color of my fur. It's mostly true."

3. Are you single or taken ?

"Definitely single."

4. Any Abilities or powers ?

"Well, I have this... thing. I don't know what to call it, but when I'm injured or in serious danger, I just sort of start thinking faster. A lot faster. I can figure out what's most likely going to happen next, and then use that knowledge to hopefully not die. I still haven't died yet, so I think it works pretty well."

6. What is your eye colour ?

"Dark blue. Rey actually has a specific hex code for it: #1529D2."

7. How about your hair colour ?

"Black. Or maybe a really, really dark gray. It's hard to tell. If you mean my fur, though, that's mostly a much lighter gray."

8. Have you got any family members ?

"Just my parents. We don't really talk much. Or at all, really."

9. oh ? How about pets ?

"Uh, no. No pets. Ever."

10. That's cool , I guess. Now tell me something you don't like?

"The one thing I hate most is being bored. So I really hope you're going to start asking some more interesting questions soon."

11. Do you have any activities/ Hobbies you like to do ?

"Aside from chasing rumors that always lead to going on crazy adventures? I play a lot of video games. Between those, that's basically all my free time."

12. Have you hurt anyone in anyway before ?

"Oh, yeah. Mostly in self-defense, but not always. It's because of those crazy adventures I mentioned. Sometimes I have to fight my way out."

13. Ever...Killed anyone before ?

"No, that I haven't done. And I don't plan on doing it any time soon."

14. What kind of animal are you ?

"I'm a cat. Specifically a margay, although real non-anthropomorphic margays don't come in black and gray."

15. Name your worst habits?

"...Huh? Sorry, I wasn't listening. Could you repeat the question?"

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?

"A few people, actually. If I mention them, they'd either be embarrassed or think I'm trying to suck up to them. So I'm not going to give any names."

17. Are you Gay, Straight, or Bisexual ?

"You probably wouldn't know it if I didn't tell you, but I'm actually bi. I'm fine with girls, I just really prefer guys."

18. Do you go to school ?

"Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, got it torn in half two days later."

19. Ever wanna get married and have kids ?

"Married, maybe a slight possibility. Kids, no chance whatsoever."

20. Do you have any fangirls / fanboys?

"Ha ha ha ha! Definitely not! Probably never will, either."

21. What are you most afraid of?

"I'm always afraid that, on one of my adventures, I'll end up getting into something I won't be able to get out of. I always have to remind myself that everything is a lot more dangerous than it seems."

22. What do you usually wear?

"Shorts and a T-shirt. Maybe a jacket if it's cold."

23. What's one food that tempts you ?

"Um... You know, I've never really thought about that. Ice cream, maybe? Yeah, now I want some ice cream. So let's go with that."

24. Am I annoying you?

"A little bit, yeah."

25. Well, it's not over yet!

"Oh, good. Great. All right, let's just get on with it."

26. What class are you? Low class, Middle class, or High class?

"If I had any idea, I'm sure I'd have something clever to say here."

27. How many friends do you have?

"Just enough, thank you very much."

28. Any thoughts on pie?

"It's a kind of pastry. Usually with a crust and some sort of filling. What's your point?"

30. Favourite drink?

"I like milk, actually. Now, before you say anything: if ANYONE so much as THINKS of making a joke involving cats and milk, somebody is losing an eye. And I'm not even going to check to make sure the person losing an eye is the one thinking of the joke."

31. What's your favourite place?

"My house. I love going to new places, but it's nice to come back home every once in a while."

32. Are you interested in anyone?

"Not at the moment. That also means you, so don't ask."

34. If you're a girl, what's your cup size?

"That's sort of a weird question. Whatever. B, more or less."

34. Would you rather swim in an ocean or a lake?

"That's an even weirder question. Hmm... Ocean, I guess. Seems more interesting."

35. What's your type?

"Are you SURE you're not coming on to me right now?"

36. Any fetishes?

(sigh) "If you really want to know, I'm into softcore bondage. I'm telling you ahead of time because everyone I know seems to find out sooner or later anyway. And I'm not telling you any more than that, so don't ask."

37. Seme or Uke?

"What the hell does that even mean?"

38. Camping or indoors?

"Can't have both? Fine, camping."

39. Are you still waiting for this quiz to end?

"Absolutely. Are we done now? Don't answer that. We're done now."
  • Listening to: Argent talk
Okay, that should do it. There shouldn't be any more large dumps like that in the future.
If anyone cares, I went back into my files and used :iconryuseihikari:'s picture as a reference to update Argent's... well, reference. He did her hair better, so I tried to mimic it. I think she looks pretty good now, actually. Her new hairstyle is much nicer than her previous one, which I will readily admit was a piece of crap.
