Chapter 2
In The Interim: Adjustment
Ben Tennyson stood before five of the six remaining members of the Justice League, waiting to see what they were going to do with him. After all, he wasn't even a citizen of this universe. Superman was the first to speak.
"Well, Ben, first we'd like to thank you for all that you did during the Thanagarian invasion. The world needs more heroes like you."
"Hold it." Superman paused at Ben's interruption. "I never said that I would keep doing the hero thing. Before yesterday, the only thing I got out of being a hero was pain. I helped you guys because I didn't know what else to do. Now that the crisis is over…" he let the sentence hang.
"I don't understand," said the Flash, "why wouldn't you want to be a superhero?"
Ben looked J'onn in the eye, and the Martian was quick to notice the haunted weariness in the young man’s eyes. "You're a telepath, right?" the Martian nodded. "Okay. Read my mind and look at the memories from

Chapter 1: Star-Crossed
Ben Tennyson stared out at his hometown of Bellwood. He couldn't bring himself to even think. It was too painful. If he tried to think, the memories would come back. Memories of those he loved… and those he lost.
Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Gwen, Kevin, Julie, when Ben tried to picture their faces, all he could see were their broken, lifeless bodies. Why did you have to die? Why did you have to leave me? And why couldn't I save you?
Ben glanced down. He had been sitting on the roof of a building, he couldn't even remember where, five stories up. If he was in one of his alien forms, he would be able to survive a five-story fall without a problem. But now, he was a human. Humans were much more fragile. Ben slowly tipped himself forward. As his body lost its connection to the building, and began its swift descent to the street, Ben thought, ‘Don't worry, everyone. I'll see you all soon.’ As the ground neared, Ben Tennyson saw a flash of b

To the Fortune of Mutual Trust.
A Valkyria Chronicles commission, made by the excellent Jakuu. (jakuu.deviantart.com/). Jakuu did an amazing job on this, and I'm grateful to have gotten the chance to collaborate with him on such a moving piece. 

The scene in this piece shows Blake, my Darcsen OC, proposing to his girlfriend Riela Marcellis, a Valkyria and one of the two female protagonists from Valkyria Chronicles 3, the third game in the Valkyria main series.  This happens shortly after the final mission of the game, right before Squad 422, aka the Nameless, disbands after destroying the Valkyrian Hammer relic/superweapon.  Blake, having narrowly survived the weapon's destruction, proposed to Riela soon after, pledging to uphold his promise to never let her feel lonely again.  

The title comes from one of the songs on the Valkyria Chronicles 3 OST, which plays in Riela's ending.

Additional Notes: While this can stand alone as Valkyria fan art, it's was also an art request I made in connection to a future crossover I've been working on, the games in question being Bioware's Mass Effect series. Blake would be a Darcsen with biotic powers, not knowing he was from an alternate Earth until events transpired to send him back to Europa while trying to piece his lost memories back together. In the process, Blake ends up joining Squad 422 of the Gallian Army (the Nameless), where he first meets Riela. Their friendship, which later blooms into something more romantic, is a little ironic, considering the fact that their ancient ancestors had fought a war between each other. Indeed; many future antagonists find the very idea of a Darcsen and a Valkyria falling in love to be an outrage, and the couple have to work very hard to deal with the troubles that come with their relationship.

So, you know this guy, right? The one proposing to Riela Marcellis from the Valkyria Chronicles series?

To the Fortune of Mutual Trust. by Krounus

He's Blake, my Darcsen OC that's been my secretly obsessive project for years. He originally started out as a Halo character (crazy, right?), but Blake has gone through so many changes over the years to get to how he looks right now. I'm finally satisfied with how he looks, but now I've run into an even bigger dilemma; WHAT KIND OF STORY DO I USE HIM FOR?!    

I will admit it to the world, right off the bat. I've always been a crossover nut, and for the longest time, I've wanted to write just such a story for two of my favorite game series of all time: Sega's Valkyria Chronicles, and Bioware's Mass Effect. While both are as far from each other's genre as you can imagine, one being Fantasy Military set in an alternate WWII, while the other is pure Science Fiction, both are RPGs, which to me means that they both have casts of wonderfully memorable characters, just wait for the audience to bond with and care about over the course of their journeys. 

But I ran into an issue pretty fast. I was adamant about keeping Blake as a Darcsen, due to the facts that I consider every Darcsen character in VC to be pure awesome in their own ways (ESPECIALLY dear old Lynn of Squad 7 & Imca of the Nameless), but also, as you can tell, I love the idea of a relationship between a Darcsen and a Valkyria. It's never really been used before, and on a personal level, I kind of thought of it as... well, tender & sweet in a way. Certainly a sharp contrast compared to how their ancestors were punching each other's lights out during the War of the Valkyrur two millennia back.

But if I'm trying to combine VC with Mass Effect, how would I include Blake in this? I'm wasn't sure how I could get away with making him a dimensional castaway growing up in the ME 'verse, not that the idea wasn't appealing in it's own right in some ways! But that left me racking my brains for a solution on how I was going to pull this crossover off.

Funny enough, it took watching a couple of old Star Trek episodes for me to remember that, yes, traveling to alternate Earths was a common thing in science fiction and not so off-beat at all, and that I would just be following an example that had worked with screenwriters and sci-fi authors time and again! Heck, Mass Effect itself already has that Star Trekky vibe going for it anyway; all I have to do now is inject some of that Science Fantasy flair from Star Trek, and now I've got my crossover! Pretty neat, huh?

Sorry for taking so long.  I'm inking your OC profile shot.  Now you wanted him with his tool on his arm, right?  That holographic thingy?
