Hello, and welcome back to Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored, by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host, SC, joined by Teh Specs, and last time, Yuri and Repede met up with Estelle and Raven, while Tai was sent off to go be broody somewhere where nobody would have to see it. Tai got a weird feeling that Yuri thought he was a bad guy, so he went to try and clear his name, but was then promptly jumped by the
Ginyu Force Schwann Brigade’s best and brightest(?), Adecor and Boccos, who had somehow mistaken him for an assassin of Leviathan’s Claw.
This week, we’re jumping into the next chapter, fittingly titled, “It all goes to hell.” And, might I add, it is so nice to be able to get through chapters quickly again.
Well, hot damn! Been a while since we’ve been here, huh?
Specs: You know, I actually forgot I was part of the riff for this fic until you dragged me in here.
Well, now that I’ve dropped the soul pain that is LAFS off my shoulders, I say we should get back to this, because it’s been far too long since we’ve had any adventures with Rainbow Tai and the Brave Vesperians. With that in mind:
Hello, and welcome back to Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored, by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host, SC, joined by Teh Specs, and last time, Tai, Estelle and Raven made it to Zaphias, news of which was quick to reach the ears of Yuri and Repede. Shortly after their arrival, Tai was instructed to hang out by the ramp down to the Lower Quarter, which was where the riff cut off for two whole years.
So, since I’ve had this thing on hold for so long, let’s not waste anymore time and jump back in!
Hello, and welcome back to Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host, SC, and according to Specs’ notes from last chapter, we’ve finally reached Zaphias, and of course Tai hates it. There also seems to be undertones of the author trying to make Tai seem deep and mysterious, with predictable results of failure, as Specs says it only served to confuse him worse rather than intrigue him.
Well, good to know that Specs kept things real while I was out.

Critiqued by Teh Specs, Book Specs and The Guardian
Specs: Hey, guys! It’s me, Teh Specs! So, that SC guy is away at the moment, said he was going to celebrate being made the newest Librarian by eating a shitload of pizza, and he told me that if he wasn’t back by the time this riff went up, that I was to recite this message he left for you all.
*Book Specs hands Specs a note*
Specs: It reads, and I quote, “Hello, patrons, this is SC here, and I’ve gotten an upgrade from my guest-riffer status” – and then it shows a picture of him swapping out his glasses for some really stereotypical librarian ones, you know, the ones that have the little chain and look all ovally and such – And then the letter continues, “I am now SC: THE LIBRARIAN!” And then there’s some side-note where he expresses that he probably could have found a pair of librarian glasses that weren’t quite so grandmotherly. I don’t disagree, he’s wearing these fuchsia-colored things that are studded around the rims with cheapo little rhinestones and shit.
Anyhow, so, that’s the note, and with that, I can get to finishing off chapter four of this turkey. Tales of Vesperia, Blastia Something-Such-Or-Other, by that dumbass Tai.
*Booky pokes Specs in the arm*
Specs: Oh, uh, my bad, by that dumbass Matty. I don’t want to spend too long on a recap, so let’s just list the basics: Some Immortal guy showed up and learned what it is to have his ears bleed from dubstep. Also, Tai did some fancy bullshit Arte that almost killed Estelle and was highly unnecessary to use, and then it came out that his Artes relied entirely on blastia, meaning that he shouldn’t even be able to use them in the first place, because the blastia are destroyed. Now, there WAS supposed to be another Immortal guy here, but for some reason he didn’t show up or I can’t find him or whatever, and I really want to get this done so we can get to the next chapter, so if he does show up, I’ll apologi-
*Booky pokes Specs in the arm again*

Hello, and welcome back to chapter four of Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored, by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host and guest-riffer, SC, and in the last part, I kidnapped a really important guy, Tai got mad at people being mean to Raven and made a really laughable threat of violence if they tried it while he was around, and then Raven joined the party and the group set out for Zaphias.
It only took four fucking chapters.
Also, it’s NaNoWriMo! Possibly my other favorite time of the fall besides Halloween and Thanksgiving. And I’m ruining it with this garbage. Mine is a world of good decisions.
So, I got the weirdest request the other day, right as I was preparing to write this riff solo because Specs is still out and I couldn’t wrangle any OCs or canon characters to sit in with me.
The request was sent by a one King Arunumin, who is an OC of mine noted for his wise rule, expert swordsmanship, and above all else, his immortality. He’s one of about seven of these Immortals who all happen to be students of an eighth Immortal of great renown, whose mission it is to train them to be the guardians of all living creatures against the evils that would plague the world, and wouldn’t you know it, after he took the throne of his kingdom, all of his fellow students fell into roles of authority alongside him.
Anyhow, Arunumin’s request asked that I allow him and his fellow Immortals to sit in on some of my riffs – I don’t have any idea why – and the first name on the list to do so is none other than Arunumin’s Court Wizard and very close childhood friend, Libraum.
So… Welcome, Libraum!
Hello, and welcome back to Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored, by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host and guest-riffer, SC, and in the last chapter, Tai and Estelle reached Deidon Hold, where Tai met Raven and for a few entirely too short blessed seconds was not a little bitch. That quickly turned to shit when Estelle met Flynn and offered to split ways with Tai to go the rest of the way to Zaphias with the Flynn Brigade, and Tai became even more of a bitch than his usual standard. Thankfully, both for Flynn and I GUESS Tai, Flynn had other places to be because there were some friends he was going to recruit to his Brigade, because there totally aren’t recruiters for that job and I guess being the Commandant of the Imperial Knights means you can abuse your authority wherever and whenever you want.
And then more FUCKING SKITS happened, and about there is where the chapter left off.
We now come to chapter four, hesitantly titled, “Um, To Zaphias!”, which has been Tai’s grudging outlook this whole time so it’s actually quite appropriate.
Hello, and welcome back to chapter three of Tales of Vesperia 2: The Blastia Age Restored by MrAwesomeMatty! I’m your host and guest-riffer, SC, and in the last part, I brought Yuri along for a ride on the pain train, and Tai and Estelle made it to Deidon Hold where they bumped into Raven, who I promptly spent nearly half the actual riff talking about! We get to meet another canon character in this part today, so I fully expect to do that again.
You have been warned.
Specs is out this chapter because he’s helping me with Fire Emblem: ReAwaken again, and Yuri
managed to escape his bindings had to go back to Zaphias for reasons, so today, I’ve decided to employ a couple more of my own OCs for the riffing fun.
