Strange how it was more than a year ago that I was excitedly talking about my return to DA, and yet it was only a few months after that post that I once again vanished from the internet.

Firstly, I want to apologize to all of my watchers that have been waiting for me to update my fanfictions. I am sorry for making you wait so long, and I hope that your interest in my writing hasn't been dulled too much, because I always loved hearing from each and every one of you. I will try to make it up to you all by updating my stories as often as humanly possible for me, but as evident from my past, my life is ridiculously hectic and unpredictable, so I cannot make any promises that I won't disappear suddenly again and without warning. I really will try my best not to do so, but life is just so...yeah.

Secondly, I don't know if I'm ready to delve into the details of what I've gone through in these past months, so please try to respect my privacy on this matter. It was a number of different problems and struggles, and I've done my best to deal with all of them, but I am still a little fragile, so I just ask you all for patience and understanding that I am not quite that same as before.

Thank you all. I look forward to reconnecting with you! Love you!

Chapter 8 – One Step Forward

When I arrived home, I found Finn passed out inside the drawer where I stored my herbs. I picked him up, careful not to bend his wings or otherwise hurt the small, fragile being. “Finn,” I called softly, “It’s time to wake up, Finn, please wake up!”

“…nnn…five more minutes…”

Letting out a quiet laugh, I checked over Finn’s body for any signs of injury or sickness while he muttered sleepily. It seemed as though his magical body bounces back from damage faster than an average person’s, because I couldn’t find a scratch on him. The only sign of the ordeal from the previous night that Finn exhibited was his complete and utter inability to wake up. If only I could sleep away all my problems… I thought, amused.

Leaving Finn on my bed, I left to take care of the daily tasks on my pathetic excuse for a ranch. My hands ached from my adventures in the mines… No everything ached. Absolutely everything. But, the bandages covering my wounds comforted me as I pushed my sore body to gather the last harvest of the spring. Of course I’d have more work today…that’s how it works….

After collecting my reasonably large yield, albeit in more time than usual, I returned to my house to find Finn finally waking up.

“MOLLYOMIGOSHAREYOUOKAY?!” He shot up from my bed, latching onto my face and surveying me for injuries, just as I had done for him earlier, though more frantic than I had been to be fair.

“I’m fine, Finn. I’m more worried about you! When you never came back I was afraid something bad had happened.” Finn’s face positively glowed red. Clearly embarrassed, he apologized profusely for ‘not being a proper protector,’ but I cut him off, explaining, “Really, Finn, everything is fine. Just after you left, Wizard found me and took care of me. See?” I held out my bandaged arms, and relief instantly washed over Finn.

“Oh, thank the Goddess that he was there to help you. But next time… Next time I’ll be your knight in shining armor! I will save you!” He struck a gallant pose and winked.

Wizard can hardly be considered a knight… I shook my head, attempting to get rid of thoughts of him and replied, “Well, hopefully I won’t be in any more situations that will require saving!”

Finn laughed and agreed. “Oh, but after all that, it was worth it, right? You got the black pearl?”

To be honest, I had completely forgotten about the shimmery stone that I had busted my ass—and every other part of me—to get. Quickly sifting through my rucksack, I found it, and Finn cheered. “Let’s go play that town tune!” I grabbed the other items needed for the musical apparatus and started off back toward town. Never a moment’s rest with the fate of a town weighing on your shoulders.

*   *   *

Paolo was ecstatic when I brought him he items, completely unaware of everything I had gone through just to obtain such a small stone. He hastily set up the apparatus, clueless to the vital role that he was playing in saving Castanet. It’s best that way… Knowing your actions will lead to the revitalization or destruction of an entire town can be a BIT stressful. Just a bit. Those thoughts, of course, were kept as thoughts, solely tormenting my own mind.

“Everything is ready!” he said excitedly, snapping me out of my musings. Finn had flow off while Paolo was preparing the setup so that he could make sure Ben was paying attention when the town’s tune played. Paolo smiled at me, counting, “Three… Two… One…!” before setting of the apparatus. A beautiful melody rang through the town, causing a few people to poke their heads out of their doors and windows just to hear the tune a bit better. I smiled as the gentle song filled the normally quiet air, seemingly bringing a bit of life back to the townspeople.

“Ahhh, just listen to that!” Kathy chirped, stamping her heeled boot to the beat. “Ain’t that just the prettiest song you ever heard?”

Candace, leaning out the window of the tailor shop, had a gentle smile on her usually passive face, nodding along to the song as well. “Pretty…” she agreed quietly.

“Everyone loves the town tune! We haven’t heard it in so long,” Paolo explained, “Thank you so much for doing this, Molly!” He beamed, and I knelt down to smile back at him at eye level, giving the boy a high five.

“Molly,” a familiar, gruff voice called out, “You did this?”

I turned around, looking up at the source of the voice. “Owen!” I said, standing up to face him.

He smiled at me. “Want me to kneel down and give you a high five?” He ruffled my hair.

“Psh, no thanks,” I laughed, pushing his hand away. “And I am not that much shorter than you!”

“Ahahaha, sure you’re not,” he said, “One foot difference is hardly anything!”

“What?” I sputtered, “T-there’s no way you’re six-three!”

“Nope, just five-eleven. But now I know you’re only five-three,” he grinned, “How tiny and cute.”

I huffed, pouting a little, “I am not tiny.”

Owen was still smiling as he said, “Sure, not tiny, but still cute.” He winked and tapped me gently under the chin. Blushing, I found myself at a loss for words once more. I have got to learn how to talk to guys… “So, cutie, you doing anything?” he suddenly asked.

Still blushing, I managed to collect my thoughts. “Yeah, I, uh, I’ve gotta go do this, um, this thing for, uh…” Okay, I lied about the collected thoughts thing.

“Oh, no, I get it,” Owen said, rubbing the back of his head, “Sorry, didn’t mean to come on too strong. I’ll just, uh, just get going then.” He laughed uncomfortably, and I immediately felt bad.

“No, no, it’s not like that, I swear! I really do have something to do, I just, uh, I don’t know how to explain it?” I stumbled over my words, hastily trying to make Owen feel better, “Ugh, I’m not making excuses I swear I would love to do you—I mean do something with you, not, not do…you…ah, I’ll just go and die from embarrassment now.”

My face was nearly as red as his hair, but he just laughed and grabbed my shoulder before I ran away. “And I thought I was coming on too strong!”

“Please stop,” I pleaded, “Please.”

“Aw, but you’re even cuter when you’re blushing!”

I covered my face with my hands and shook my head. “Aughhh…”

“Hey, hey, don’t cover that cute, tiny face of yours!” He took my hands in his own and leaned down so that our eyes met. “How about this: you go do whatever mysterious thing it is that you need to do, then come find me and we can redo this whole mess? Deal?”

I nodded, not trusting myself to make a coherent sentence while his dark, intense eyes were locked with mine.

“Awesome!” he shouted, standing up. “Now, if you don’t stick to our deal, I can’t promise that I’ll stay quiet about your little slip-up there.” He winked again. My blush returned, though it had never fully gone away in the first place.

“Got it,” I muttered, “I guess, I’ll, uh, see you later?”

“You better!”

I shook my head and ran off before I humiliated myself any further, hearing Owen’s deep laughter fade behind me.

*   *   *

As I climbed down the last rungs of the ladder to the Watery Cave, I heard Finn’s shrill voice call out to me. “What took you so long, Molly? I was afraid something happened to you again!”

“Ah…”

“MOLLY!” A blue blur swirled around my head, and my eyes struggled to follow the sprite’s erratic flight path. “Molly I remembered the tune! I can ring my bell! And it’s all thanks to you!” He shot back toward his bell, nearly crashing into it and began ringing it along to the tune that had been playing just minutes earlier, but this time, as the song echoed in the underground cavern, I noticed the waves begin to ebb and flow seemingly in time with Ben’s bell. The song ended, and Ben loudly proclaimed, “The power of water has been returned to Castanet! Thank you, again, Molly! I know that you’ll be able to ring all the bells and restore the rest of this land!”

Smiling, I looked up at the light creeping in through the tunnel, and I felt a little hope for the future. Look at me, Mom, I thought, One bell down, four to go. I’ll save this town. I can do it!
MollyxWizard: Dreams 8
...so hi everyone. Um, I know that I've been gone awhile, and a lot has happened in these past few months, but I am going to try to write a few new chapters as an apology for my extended absence. I hope that you all can forgive me.

So about this chapter now. Yeah, it's Wizard-less, sorry, but chapters like that are necessary some times! To be honest I didn't have too much fun writing it either, lol. But don't worry, fluff will come all in good time...I promise!

Let's see... I've always been pretty imaginative and I love to write stories. I've got lots of quirks and silly things I endulge myself in, like twirling around laughing. I like to pretend I'm bad by staying up late and reading or writing with my booklight, so my mom thinks I'm asleep. I'm a big dreamer and I often daydream and make up stories in my head. Finally, I've decided to start writing them down and posting them online, after some nagging from some other chicas. So, I hope you guys like it! :D

Well you pick one of the heads you like and make the face from the options available and/or stuff you make yourself or just a pre-made face.. Add it to a half body or full body (which then means you add the arms of your choosing...)
 use one of the pieces of the hair options made and/or make your own parts... Recolour the skin, hair and eyes to go with your character and customise the clothes... Of course if there's anything you are struggling with (like the chest, hairstyles..) let me know, i'll add what's needed or even help you out a little...

sorry... That was rather long.. And probably not all that helpful... But oh well... Sadly i stopped updating it.. So there's not a lot at the moment.. But i will be adding more at some point... After all i plan to have it so all the body types from TOTT are added, along with hairstyles, faces, etc...
 Plus some extra parts...
