welcome to lorem (ipsum)!
Ipsum. A mega-city that is located beachside, with mountains and a river surrounding its expansive homes and towering buildings. The city is beyond beautiful... yet none of the residents have any idea how they arrived, and have yet to leave, because Ipsum is a city you can never leave -- not by choice. People appear here without any knowledge where they are, no one knows what country or world they are even in. Yet, the city still provides for her people. Jobs, homes, goods are all readily available, and there is a place for everyone, be it the good or bad — Ipsum shall provide.

Fire Emblem: Fates
They say it's impossible. Everyone who raised the boy in his Deeprealm said that there was no chance he could get close to the Second Prince of Hoshido, especially when he was so far away. But they didn't get it. All of those stories, all those legends. Everything just made him seem so amazing. The kind of person you wanted desperately to be.
Why couldn't you be?
What was there to stop you?
Did.... they see something you didn't?
He was an archer, or so they said. Able to wield the Fujin Yumi in a way that no one else could. You'd never met him, but only the best could wield that weapon. Your father could do it, so you wanted to be able to. The only thing in your hand now was a wooden bow. Something made in the yard where your caretakers took care of crops.
He was a warrior.
He was a Prince.
But.... what did that make you?
Something said that there was nothing that could be done. This was a goal, nothing else. Within a hand's reach yet so very far away in a whole other world that was impossible to find. A place where battles were fought and his family lived there. His mother. His father. The people who loved you so very, very much but that you had never met. Left here in this realm with caretakers and a dream.
With no much free time and lo little to do, there were chances everywhere to perfect the skills of your father's Legends. A man who could shoot the Legendary Bow. Someone who would never miss a target. You were going to master those skills. Prove that you were - in fact - the son of the second Hoshidan Prince. A smile, enthusiasm, brightness. Dragging other children along into the forest and mountains as the sun set.
They blamed you.
It was all your fault they said.
Why did you lead them astray?
But.... you'd found your way back. They had been crying and in distress so you couldn't just leave them. Giving up wasn't an option either. Looking up at the stars, it hit you. Almost as though a comet had fallen from the sky, striking you in the brain. Even though it was dark, even though the terrain was difficult to traverse, you knew the way home. You knew a path. A way to help them all.
How awesome is that?
They made you help with the hunting though.
It was still your fault the others could've gotten hurt.
Was.... that fair?
Nothing could deter you. Now that there was the knowledge that you had a skill no one could take that away. There was even pride in that ability. The job at hand was hunting, fathering food for everyone. Something you were capable of doing. No regrets or hesitation, just shooting at what would eventually be a food source for everyone.
But there was something there.
In the bushes.
You couldn't let whatever it was get any closer.
The arrow flies, shot toward the bushes. You expected a large animal, a bear maybe. Or even something like a wolf. Warriors atop Pegasi and Wyverns emerged from the bushes, powerful. Strong. If you hadn't shot maybe they would've left you alone to return. But they were attacking. You let more arrows fly, hitting them and downing a few but they surrounded you from all sides. No one could shoot down that many.
An arrow from behind them.
Shining, blue, hopeful light.
Your eyes shone with a thousand stars as you saw him.
Powerful, just like you knew he would be. There was nothing that said the legends and stories were wrong. He had come to help you even though it had been in another dimension. Your father. Prince Takumi. He had come to save you. Now you were fighting by his side, like you only ever did in your dreams. But this was reality. This was real and he had come to save you. By his side you beat the bad guys, he made you stronger. Someone that you looked up to and admired - how could you let this chance go.
More certain than ever.
More sure than before.
Now you could fight with your father.
But everything stopped before it even began....
One of these days, I'm gonna have to play this game. He sounds absolutely precious, okay. So determined, so hopeful, bad luck being dragged into Ipsum, but I'm sure he can find a place for himself here. At least he won't be completely alone, right?
