Spoilers for Tales of the Abyss, majority of them up to Tower of Rem, but possibly some after as well, so be wary. 

This has to do with the slight controversy around Luke's character development in the third part of the game. 

Reality is not a happy thing.  )


Sometimes I feel like I think too much about stuff like this. But yeah, anyway. I haven't seen anything huge on the arguments for either side, but I still felt like standing up for the way the game is

And now that I've spent so much time on that, I need to go get back to studying. WHEE.

 So, I got Golden Sun: Dark Dawn the day it became available. And I beat it in around two days. There are plenty of points, good and bad, about this game. Overall, I liked it. But one of my biggest complaints is how short the game was. 

However, as I've played the game through a second time, some of the suspicions I developed the first time around have bloomed into something bigger. I really do think that the game was meant to go on longer, and that somebody, perhaps Nintendo, told them to cut it off early. 

Dark Dawn Spoilers under the cut.  )

 Since I'm going to be talking a lot about it, and also to help get some of my thoughts down, I thought I'd give a semi-brief overview of fic and some of its background info (since there'd be a lot of it).

Tales of the Abyss Full-Game Spoilers abound. 

"Reaction" is a multi-chapter, post-game AU fanfic of Namco's "Tales of the Abyss", based on the (not too unpopular) idea that both Asch and Luke survived. It takes place five years after the game's epilogue, or seven years after the fall of Eldrant. A lot of things have changed, and a lot of progress has been made in Auldrant in that time, both on a grand (i.e. the reformation of the Order of Lorelei) and personal (i.e. Asch and Luke are actually getting along now) levels. But not everything's so happy and simple. The world is on the edge of another mass of sweeping conflict, and whether that conflict will help solidify the new future Luke, Asch and the others have won, or overwrite it entirely depends entirely on the outcome. 

Oh, and to add to it all, as part of the strange circumstances that allowed both Luke and Asch to come back alive, Van is now back too. And since we're past the end of the seventh Fonstone, he now has undeniable proof that the Score is gone, with the original world still intact. So what he's going to do is anybody's guess.

Fun times, eh?

Rating: T/PG-13
Characters: Just about everybody who was alive at the end of the game + Luke, Asch and Van, some new characters, and a hell of a lot of replicas (who are also new characters). 
Pairings: LukexTear, AschxNatalia, some pairings still undecided

Anyway, so... that's it. Basic overview done. And now I'll probably end up posting background info and the like, somewhere in the near future.
