-being in a lot of pain.... but going out to lunch was so worth it. First time out of the house for more than a doctor's appointment in a long time!

Yes I was keeping her awake. That's what she gets for living in EST and me in MST. I still have an extra 2 hours.

Does anyone know which author always ended her tales with "And that's the end of that?"

Also, how much weight can the average eagle carry? I think I might have an idea for KQ5:AMTHGY! where Cedric actually helps save Graham by climbing onto the Eagle's back and grabbing Graham in mid-air as they fly away to the beach.

But, that might be kinda implausible. Then again, this IS a magical world where cheese can boot up wand power transfer machines.

Oh! I just now realized this! I think I put an unintentional reference to The Perils of Rosella in my KQ5 fanfic. Both Cedric and Rosella use a flute to make a snake leave them alone.

Well, it'd have to be a very big eagle but there's no reason he couldn't be. :P

Wait, how can Cedric play a flute without fingers?

Ah. Well, to answer your question and make a long story short: Cedric is human in my story. A magic user, to be exact, who is Crispin's apprentice and adopted son.

Brown hair and brown eyes. Wears rounded glasses instead of a monocle (just what exactly IS the point ofa monocle anyway?), and has a light blue vest and brown pants (matching up to, of course, the original Cedric as you can see in my avatar). I suspect he has orange/yellow boots, but I haven't decided as of yet. He's a young man in his 20s (around Alexander's Rosella' age)

The magic he uses is similar to what Alexander used in 3. He has a magic wand always in his hand, which he uses to cast his spells, most of which are from a spell book they'd gotten from the Serenia Library. To use a spell, he flips open the book,finds a spell that seems useful, points his wand at whatever the target is, and recite a short rhyme (usually 2-4 lines) and concentrate on channeling the spell through the wand.

I find it kinda interesting (and kinda sad too) that, my origina vision for GR!Cedric was to make him start out like the original Cedric- give bad advice, be a coward, generally making him annoying (albeit a tiny bit less annoying that the original) and be having him grow stronger and braver over time, and by the time he and Graham reach Mordack, he's completely changed into a young man just as brave as Graham.

That was my original intention. What I've ended up with however (s of chapter 5, which is as far as I've gotten, which is the gypsy camp and the Dark Forest), is someone who doesn't seem annoying (atleast to me), just... underconfident and really wants to make sure that Graham is safe. Must protect Graham at all costs! is what he tells himself in the Endless Desert, when they're running away from the bandits, and Graham suddenly skids to a stop and quickly hatches a plan to get rid of their leader. Cedric notices Graham isn't following and runs back to him, but he is stopped and is asked (for the second time that day) "Do you trust me?" in which Cedric nods and doesn't disturb him anymore. Graham's plan works, of course, and they head out of the desert.

As for Cedric's past... there isn't much to tell. He was raised by aloving mother (doesn't know nor care about his father) in Serenia, and was living a happy, simple life there until they decided to take a walk. How and why exactly they were in the Dark Forest, I haven't figured out yet, but anyway. They encounter the witch of the Dark Forest, who attacks them and (presumedly) kills Cedric's mother. Somehow, either he runs into Cripin, or Crispin finds him, and he takes him under his wing and raises him to be hi apprentice. Little does Cedric know, that his mother is still alive. She's just a little bit... smaller than usual.

^ Be sure to leave a reply and tell me what you think.

- Watching Chuggaaconroy's LP of Mother 3, as part of my "Mother Marathon" that has gone on for the past few days to honor and in memory of Memoria (a Mother webcomic that I REALLY liked!) being ended. Start off with Chuggaa's Mother 1 LP, then his Earthbound LP, then the webcomics Harmony, A Winters Tale and The White Ship respectfully, then Chuggaa' Mother 3 LP, and to end it, the webcomic Memoria (including the scripts of the unfinished chapters to give definete closure!)

- Playing Pokemon Ruby, and training for the Elite Four. Just one more to level up to 60- my Shiny!Shiftry, Tengu.

- Does anyone know where I can find a full version (NOT a summary please!) of chapter 15, The Story of The King's Lettuce, from Watership Down? I'm finding nothing but brief summaries and reviews of the book. I want to send the chapter to someone in Bulbagarden Forums, who is writing a series of "Pokemonized" stories based on certain stories and folk tales. He has a Pikachu named Soren, who is a trickster just like El-arairah from Watership Down, and I think it would be a pretty good tale to try.
