Ultimate Quest for Glory! Chapter 3Chapter 3: Peasant VillageUltimate Quest for Glory! Chapter 3 by The-Golden-Knight
Not too much later, the two heroes in the making Lily and Luke reached the first main stop: Peasant Village. It's a humble community with a series of huts none of which are taller than a single floor. The roads were nothing more than caked dirt and the staples for building were wood and hay.
Chests lined the pathways, and Lily couldn't help but ask, "Why are there always random chests strewn about? If they belong to somebody, shouldn't they be at least indoors and locked?" Luke lectured, "Traditional mechanics say they're for the taking because those chests don't technically belong to anybody." "But," she inquired, "How does that make sense if they don't belong to anybody?" Luke answered, "They were made for the conscious adventurer who knows better." While a couple random commoners kept the two adventurers in line of sight, he helped himself to one of the chests and nicked a pouch containing a few gold coins out of the chest. Lily gaped and

Yes, I do specialize in the "Epic" department, but that doesn't mean I don't or can't branch off.
|I have promised you a feature for anyone badass enough and/or bored enough to make something in my honor...Specifically, Fan Art, whether or not I asked them, about any of my characters (including my obvious fantasy self)! More broadly, anyone who so much as FEATURES ME, you are all BADASS, automatically! SO, here are all the awesome fans of mine, both former and current:|

Memebusters 22: LOLCatsHere in DeviantART City, where people come and try to make it as exceptional artists or novelists, there is a group in the park. This group has grown in popularity, but for now, there is a team meeting. "OK, is everyone here?", X asked. "Yes, everyone is here, now why on earth would you interrupt my training?", Golden asked a little irritated. "Simple. Everyone's been hard at work with these memes running here and there.", X said. "Yeah, we know that, now go a little faster.", Frosti said being her bossy self. "OK, point is, I think we need a vacation.", X said.(And this series in general; go look at the rest of it.) (How could I *NOT* feature the person who gave me my iconic avatar?!)
Commission: The-Golden-KnightAlone he was,
I plucked all these from my "Downright AWESOME" list, so you know this gesture is amazing to me! I don't care how well you draw/write, or how you draw/write period! Anyone, and I mean *ANYONE* who so much as puts me into their stuff gets featured!
Now go out there and KICK SOME ASS for me! OH, and don't forget to put it online and PLEASE, share it with me! How do you expect me to feature you if you don't let me know about it?
Small update and new art feature! Hello dear members!dA4U
You may have noticed that our submissions has changed to Automatically Approved a while back. That was only temporary, now your works will be subject to vote again. The reason it was changed, was because for an extended period of time I was the only active admin here, and I was becoming pretty inactive as well. As some of you have noticed, that resulted in expiring submissions. So to prevent that from happening, I changed the submission settings, but now that I and another admin are back, we can vote for the submissions again. We'll be making sure all your works get checked out and approved before they expire!
Also, just a heads up: we have a Fanart folder. Some of you forget this / don't know this, so you're submitting your fanart works to the wrong categories. It's not a big deal, but you'll speed up your submission processes if you submit your fanart works directly to the Fanart folder
That'll be all
Do not forget to visit me at:|
OR, if you're a prospective employer, you might've seen me here:
(That's not my typing, lest its grammar be perfect.)
Seriously, I don't bite...
I am reserving myself for who is adorable and sweet! And I'm updating this on her birthday. Happy birthday, CUTIE!
I need to get this out into the open, and there will be reasons. It's a bunch of things that don't sit right with me.
First, no pets; I do not like their physical intrusions (whether it's sniffing my crotch, tearing my couch, or assaulting my ears with squawks) and the extra maintenance (my time is already too precious as is).
Second, Japanese culture has mixed results with me; some things I do honestly enjoy, but much of it simply does not sit right with me. Usually it makes me feel the "uncanny valley" sort of effect. And the content/writing tends to be "out there", even for me.
No stenches; be it scent chemicals ("perfume"/"cologne", spray "deodorants", "room freshener oils", etc.) or poor hygiene. I have the lungs of a canary, which is what I was born with. Plus, my nasal passageways usually become irritated, which is not fun. I'd make the sarcastic joke, "Aah, I love the smell of Petrol in the morning," because I remember reading that was one of the actual active ingredients of a lip balm.
One quick point: Please do not send me any unless it's important and/or confidential. It's the main means of communication for staff here and they stand out over my over 9000 messages. If you want to small talk, please leave a comment on my profile wherever you please. And if all you're going to say is "Thanks for the fave/watch", you're welcome! There. But still, thanks in advance for visiting! And also a lot of the stuff here is very historical, so I do not know what needs to be updated or deleted from here.
That aside, realize I LOVE meeting new people! So try not to be bashful or repulsed by my...(probably) intimidating first impression. Yes, there IS a very, VERY thin line between ego and self-esteem, so to better fall into the latter, I've attempted to amend the wording of my deviant ID.
I have quite a few self-proclaimed titles, like "The Golden Knight" or "The Legendary Warrior" and so forth. None of those are good for quickly calling me out. Yes, my name is Jay, but if you *really* want to stroke my ego, just call me "Captain". No, I was never in any Real Life military. But in fantasy world, I have plenty of stories to tell you.
About me? Most people (many even on Deviantart!) say they're "nothing outstanding." Me, on the other hand? For good or bad, What's NOT outstanding?! This much is true, when my personality literally defies the social norms, and that's only on the surface of my Real Life character. The farthest stretch of my ambition actually involves flying jets one day (Well, it was for a time. I still think it would be awesome, but I think that reach is beyond my grasp). Yes, if possible and if school wouldn't suck the fun out of it, I'd like to be a fighter pilot! It would be cool, but considering the absolute uncertainty with the military route (I've had far too many second thoughts at this point of time), my other hopes and dreams involve "World Domination" scale popularity similar to the famous Original Star Wars Trilogy; be it with comics/cartoons, video games, or anything else along those lines. Above all, my greatest fantasy is to be a supersoldier like and all my career choices revolve around that guiding daydream. For a time (back when I had this gift called "motivation"), I tried to express that on paper as best as I could. That's part of what writing Hero Team was for!
Similarly to what I said above, I defy classification...unlike literally EVERYONE I've bumped into within my life. Prove me wrong; I dare you.
THE Best way to get to know me is to talk to me and ask about me. Don't be shy; I'm always up for a good talk.
That not enough?! Let me point you to Hero Team! It's in my GALLERY! It's a webcomic epic about "fighting 'the only good fight since WWII'." (Wait - I already talked about that. That's what happens as time goes by and multiple edits are made as I mature.) The second best way is to keep reading, as well as explore my gallery and journals, particularly the most recent journals since older ones can quickly become dated. However, for historic reasons I preserve even my oldest journals; shows where I've been and how far I've come in my "Journey Through Life".
Now, for many of you kids out there (and some grown-ups as well), yes I do "roleplay" and it's absolutely amazing with the right people (I've been with plenty of "wrong people" and it usually involves infighting and arguing over who has more God-power; or it involves not knowing a plot - which I confess I've been guilty of quite a bit lately). The scenes I usually enact involve kicking tail and/or making love. However, for that last one, I have to be more reserved. Why? Because as I explain below (and laugh about my past-self in the process), I'm actually in love!
But for all you loyal Powerpuffs, I am sorry I haven't been doing such a good job at keeping tabs on you all. College happened. I may have graduated and I've actually gotten my physical degree in my hands, but even still, it's either hard or impossible to be a single person (superpowers or no) and keep up with all the activity (some of it's more commonplace than others, so I have to pick-and-choose the more "outstanding" of the crowd I'm afraid).
A few choice words to define me would include explosive, intense, chivalrous, and outstanding. (to my knowledge, honesty is all part of the package that is "Chivalrous".) Long story short on who I am as a person, Blossom said it best with "I'm smart, cute, and tough. I'm the whole package!" Smart; I skipped First Grade, and my imagination exceeds (at least virtually) all known bounds! That's only the beginning. Cute; well that's my personal opinion of looking at myself in the mirror (your results may vary...). And as I draw myself, I think that's cute, particularly since everything and everyone is cuter in cartoon than Real Life. Finally tough; you can almost bet your SOUL on that! (I wouldn't, because my soul is too precious to me) I have a Spartan fighting spirit and a determination only rivaled by fictional Rocky Balboa! No, seriously, this has been prove in Real Life incidents, despite how sparse these incidents were.
If you want my "type", it can easily be summarized as "Epic Action Hero" (sadly, I am still merely at the wannabe stage of that right now) because not only do each of those words reflect on what I strive for ("Epic", "Action", and most importantly, "Hero"), but those three words joined together create a deeper meaning. This also implies I'm prone to cracking "one-liners". Naturally, I am blunt, open, and straightforward, keeping complications to a minimum. On the other hand, I can pleasurably hold an intellectual and/or philosophical discussion with other people of opposing viewpoints, which goes to show I have tolerance and a good head on my shoulders, which defies the stereotypical "Action Hero" image.
*AHEM!* NOW, let's look deeper into my personality by going into specific details!
I am Jay, also known as "The Ace" for multiple reasons. I have a wild facination with the success reaped by The Powerpuff Girls, which has sparked my ambitions ever since I was a young boy roughly at the age the girls themselves are portrayed: 5-6 years. The history behind my username of "The Golden Knight" is a combination of self-discovery and a scarred memory from an old fandom forum from long ago. Formerly, I was "King Powerpuff" but that sounds egotistical for even my current level of self-esteem. As soon as I better embraced my martial and moral nature while coming to terms with my limitations and simultaneously improving myself indefinitely (that self-improvement still goes on to this day, AND still counting) (and after I learned that the old forum I was on was run by those with the Internet's unique
No, I am not an "Internet Tough Guy" because that would imply I have no sense of humor and I bully. Neither of those accusations are true.
Let me make this explicitly clear from the get-go: Anime is completely ALIEN to me! It is just not my thing; end of discussion. I wouldn't mind if you like it (seemingly EVERYONE on Deviantart seems to,
Both my moral alignment AND religion can be answered in one simple statement: I believe in the Light Side of the Force! Obviously, that means I have a good heart, and to throw it out there bluntly, I'm technically a Jedi. No, that does not mean I can lift cars with sheer willpower. That means, in the Realistic sense, I believe The Force (their definition of the almighty) has validity; considering my logic says "If the Almighty is absolutely everywhere at the same time all that time, the only way that's possible is if it were literally everything!" What that means, is each of us is a piece of "God" or "The Force" and all of us collectively compose "God"; you, me, the next guy, and everything in between that physical space. Some of us, though, might have a pinch more God/The Force in us than others, particularly those with more spirit or more gifts than curses...(Omitting countless other complications "Life" may throw) Not only that, but the Almighty is like Government to the cosmic scale: Sure it is all powerful, but it also rules by the consent of the governed (that is, US (and perchance our "Doomsday" is simply our mass people losing the consent to be governed by the cosmos, and "Doomsday" is the "dissolving of government" on that cosmic plane (Although others can argue we've severed our cosmic consent long ago))), nor will it break the Laws of Science (the Cosmic Constitution), lest the Almighty become "above the law" and/or break its own laws and constitutions. It drives our destines, but it also heeds our commands and gives way to interpretation. Free Will is our greatest natural right, and our ability to interpret is why The Force (or God) communicates through "signs" rather than appearing as an apparition who can plainly speak and reveal our fortunes to each of us...That, and/or it could simply be too busy keeping all existence in order to worry about each and every individual on a personal measure.
I will not lie to you: I too have overwhelming hormones, just like any human teenager/young adult! At least I'll let you know ahead of time, AND I never do anything withOUT consent! I'm sorry if this "disturbs" anybody, but such is nature. I do my best to cope with it.
Also if it were politically and/or legally practical, I'd fancy myself a freedom fighter: always trying to better democracy and humanity as a whole. For this reason, I take a strong interest in the free use of firearms and guns and exercise this right on an average weekly basis, earning the title of "Distinguished Expert" in the NRA, the highest in the qualification system and a nationally recognized title. If there were such a thing in existence, I'd be a proud member of the "U.S. Militia" referring to the Second Amendment's definition (well, ALL American citizens are considered "militia," but I tend to make that fact more overt with myself. To me, as civilians it is our moral DUTY to be prepared for self-defense and combat; as in pacifism is a luxury paid in full by Spartan characters such as myself and our military), not to be misunderstood for military, because I am not military staff (National Guard is technically military, so that's also a wrong answer). I'm too civilian for military, yet too military (at heart) for civilian, so I'm in between. Where is that? I answered this: militia, like our Founding Fathers long before me.
Remember: "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson
I take pride in where I am, have been, and am going. All my life experiences and character-defining moments of profound reflection that make me who I am today, ranging from verbal abuse by both several "trolls" and/or cyber-bullies, to my academic advancement, to my near-competitive marksman skill, and to the discipline and dedication inherent with successfully juggling work and play. With a heart of gold and a will of steel, I'm the ideal choice for hunting the criminal element and exterminating the vile injustices of humanity...assuming I could ever be permitted to engage in such a crusade.
Now, a piece of wisdom for you: "Judging" is objective, and leads to a path of glory. Judging leads to criticism. Criticism leads to improvement. Improvement leads to triumph. Finally, triumph, leads to self-esteem!
The best of what I work on creative-wise is kept in Top Secret status and I originally forbid the submission of most content on the Internet or on computers as a whole, fearing for security reasons combined with the thought that some swine could steal my ideas and all the credit that goes with them. So try not to spam me with "Post more" comments, otherwise you'd be provoking a flame war. Recently I have been creating content specially designed for the public community to enjoy, so I wouldn't appear so isolated. Not only this, but I've been attempting to showcase myself as a writer, with obscurity acting as my prime bane.
It's somewhat clear as to what I like, but if not, here's the Official List (Subject to update):
: Intensity; epicness, anything along those lines...
: Ultra-Violence (related to intensity above)
: Cartoons, notably The Powerpuff Girls
: video games
: Blossom, young AND old (mature)!
: Guns, guns, and more guns...
: swords are cool, too
: women that aren't afraid to be unique or gutsy
: medals, awards, and the like
: sugar (sucrose to be technical)
: free time
Now, here are some things I don't like:
: Perverts/pedophiles (simply being sexually active or "Sex positive" isn't the same as this)
: People that take out of context
: cosmetic artificiality (Yep, "makeup" grosses me out)
: technical difficulties
: weird, unthinkable pairings
: ideological conflict (even if it makes good proving grounds for my psyche)
: herding "cliques" (all that social "conformity")
: work, notably "homework"
: politics in general (doubly for its sheer necessity)
: forces of EVIL
Now let's see...AH YES! My "very good service record," one of the biggest reasons I feel . It's an incomplete list that is subject to update:
