One of these days I am going to write a rant about Endrance and how great and underappreciated he is and no one will read it. (I mean Elk. I mean Kaoru. I mean just the entire character in general, really.)
Also how you could send really sort of perfect responses to him in GU and yet then they made his promise card ending into pretty much a joke. Like why did you play me like that. You fooled me into thinking you were going to treat the idea of his bisexuality and Haseo/Endrance as a pairing with some respect. And then you didn’t. That was awful. (Okay you did respect his sexuality a little bit, better than it could have gone. Still, you could have done better GU. YOU COULD HAVE DONE BETTER.)
I actually have a rant of my own about this already written, I just wanted to draw something to go with it so it wouldn’t just get ignored right off the bat like most ~opinions~ are.
He’s a wonderful character, and I don’t think that people realize what a hard time he has with life. Part of it is cultural differences, but a lot of it is viewing depression as ‘weakness’, which… c’mon tumblr you’re better than that.
anyway yeah go ahead and write a rant, I plan to as well. I love seeing people defend this character, I love seeing people understand him. He’s treated so harshly by people who overlook how strong he really is.
Hello, I would happily read both of these rants! Because everything you’re saying is true, and I will never stop feeling bitter about how his promise card ending got short-changed. Even Bordeaux’s was taken more seriously, what the hell.
Let’s all just sit in a circle and talk about Endrance’s greatness. I’ll make cookies or something.
Ahhh! One of my favourite Japanese artists has just uploaded a heap of new stuff to Pixiv. She used to have a website called Styx (and you can find some of her old pictures tagged with that, on my blog), but it was taken down years ago. I thought her talent had been lost to the world forever. So glad to be proven wrong ♥♥♥

Fic: Outlasting The World
Hey, remember when I took some requests a million years ago? Well here’s the first one. Sorry for the delay, but I’ve had a lot of stuff pile up on me, from college work to crappy file-eating USB sticks.
Anyway! This is for Eriyu, who asked for Ryou and Kaoru doing cute stuff in the real world.
Title: Outlasting The World
Summary: Socially awkward internet boyfriends, finally getting to see that movie about their favourite game. Unofficially set in the Victorious/Veritas ‘verse. 1,520 words.
Posted on LiveJournal, since it’s easier to format long, readable text posts there
Imagine your OTP discovering fanfiction of themselves on the internet.
Went with fanart instead!
Since that seems more likely.
Yes. Perfect awkward internet boyfriends (or almost-boyfriends, in this case).
Good timing too, because I just spent an afternoon being shown sad animal welfare videos in college. But now I am cheered up! ;u;
More domestic OTP cuteness from Scope ♥
Endrance what are you doing
did you wear that apron all night
Today is a good day for some more Chelate-drawn cuteness, I think!
Fic // End of The World
The image is frozen. It’s the 24th of December 2018, and the image is frozen on Endrance’s screen, the colours of Mac Anu’s final sunset bleeding over the sky like a wound that won’t ever heal. Those last few moments in The World, overlaid by an ugly flashing box announcing server offline. CC Corp has tired of supporting this dangerous, troublesome game.
Sunset-bathed towers shattered into zeroes and ones, Dol Dona’s sparkling ocean and Indieglut Lugh’s silent, icy lake evaporated. This was his home for the past three years, his sanctuary, and there won’t even be a physical ruin left behind, a grave to leave flowers upon. He blinks rapidly as the last image he’ll see of Haseo blurs (reminding him of an older, deeper loss, each pain enhancing the other). It’s hard to breathe, to do anything.
There’s a noise in the real world, but his headphones muffle it, and The World’s background music is stuck on repeat. Not that every tune isn’t committed to memory, but… If he takes the M2D off now, he won’t be able to put it back on again. There will be nothing left.
Pressure, a touch, a hand on his shoulder. Then the warmth of lips against his own, light but unmistakable. He closes his eyes against the frozen image burned into his mind, breathes in, and lets Ryou slip off the M2D.
