PoR PoV Fanfic

Recommended Posts

So I decided to jump onto the fanfic bandwagon with a story based off of my favorite FE game so far, Path of Radiance. This will be a Point of View (PoV) story where you follow me, Alex, throughout the game and trying to survive in the land of Tellius. But I wanted to do things a little more differently, too. At some points in the story, there will be options to choose from, sort of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book/story. So you can decide what happens to me as I go through this even killing me off maybe. Also, while I myself have fairly decent knowledge of the game, I’m making it so my character does not. So, let’s get started!

Prologue

[spoiler=Part 1]What happened? I can’t see, my vision is blurry. I can see a shape of something in front of me, but I can’t make out what it is. It tries to talk to me, but my hearing is messed up, too. After rubbing my eyes and waiting a few minutes for the sound to come back, I sit up.

“You’re awake,” the voice said. I looked over to see a dark-haired young man in green robes. He had a brand of some kind on his forehead, though when I noticed it, he didn’t seem to try and hide it. Groaning, I stood up.

“What happened?” I asked him.

“You tell me,” he replied. “You’re behind enemy lines and I found you unconscious, and yet, you don’t have a wound on you.” I looked at myself, confirming what he said to be true.

“What do you mean ‘behind enemy lines’?” I asked. The man looked at me funny.

“Do you not know where you are?” I looked around, but nothing seemed familiar. I shook my head negatively. “Strange. Well, you seem fine now, so I wish you the best, but I got to get back to my commander.” He started to leave.

“Hold on, you’re just gonna leave me here?” I asked alarmingly. He turned back to me.

“My mission was to do recon over here,” he replied. “That’s my priority. Nothing else matters. I have discovered something important and need to get back to my base. If there is nothing else…” He turned to leave again.

What do you do?

[spoiler=Follow the man]“Wait!” I yelled out. The man turned around franticly and hushed me.

“You’ll give away my position,” he hissed.

“Sorry,” I said. “But you can’t just leave me here. Am I able to come back to your base with you?”

“If you want,” he said. “Doesn’t matter to me, just so long as you’re not an enemy.”

“I don’t even know where I am. I can’t be an enemy,” Ignoring me, the man continued on his way back and I followed. “Who are you, anyway?”

“Soren,” he replied without turning to look at me. “Now be quiet!” I nodded, though I knew he couldn’t see me. Then a thought came to my mind: What’s my name? Alex. Okay, good, I remember that. But I don’t remember how I got here…



It took us a number of days to get to where we were trying to go. Eventually, I introduced myself, but he didn’t seem to care. He had packed enough food and water only for him, so we had to eat sparingly. He also only had one bag to sleep in, so we took turns, though the tent was big enough for the both of us. Numerous times, we had to maneuver around enemy fortresses. Soren takes his time to plan out the movements of the enemies, then when he has enough information, we move and try to avoid them all. Soon enough, we ran out of food, but Soren said his base was close by.

(Jump to Spoiler marked "Part 2")

[spoiler=Walk around]Deciding the man didn’t want anything to do with me, I wondered around the area. I got completely lost in the nearby forest and franticly started searching for a way out. I ended up running into a troop of soldiers at their camp.

“Hey, can any of you lead me out of this forest?” I asked them. I appeared to have startled them as they jumped up and readied their weapons. I alarmingly raised my hands and said “Sorry! I didn’t mean to scare you! I just want some help getting out of here!” The soldiers didn’t seem to care much as they kept inching closer to me cautiously. I gulped, worried that I was going to die in this strange land. Just when it seemed the soldiers were about ready to strike, a blast of wind came out from behind me, blowing them all back! I turned to see the man I met earlier, battle ready.

“I don’t know how you managed to get ahead of me,” he said. “But you should be more careful.”

“S-sorry,” I stuttered. “I got lost.”

“Clearly,” the man said. “…Follow me for now, but don’t talk.” I looked at the wounded soldiers, nodded, and followed the man.

[spoiler=Part 2]We finally arrived at Soren’s base. His comrades welcomed him back, though he mostly stayed to himself, asking to speak to the commander. Everyone was more curious about the person Soren picked up on the way back, though, but they were all friendly and welcomed me to the base. The red-long-haired archer named Shinon didn’t seemed too pleased, though. Soon, the commander entered the room and Soren gave him the updates about what he has found. Then the commander noticed me.

“And who is this, Soren?” he asked to both me and Soren.

“My name is Alex, sir,” I replied. The commander had light brown hair and looked very strong. I certainly wouldn’t want to fight against him, so I tried to stay on my best behavior. The commander laughed at me, though, and patted me on the shoulder.

“No need to be so afraid, boy,” he said. “I’m a nice guy, don’t worry. My name is Greil. I’m the commander of this troop you see here: The Greil Mercenaries.”

“Mercenaries?” I asked.

“Don’t worry,” the man named Oscar said. “We only take care of the bad guys.”

“So as long as you don’t get on our bad side, we’ll get along,” the woman named Titania said. I looked at them all and nodded.

“Everyone, to the briefing room! We have some things to discuss,” Greil announced. Everyone agreed and left the room, except me. I just stood there, wondering what to do.

“Hey!” the man named Boyd walked back in and shouted at me. “You coming or what?” Smiling, I ran to him and we went to meet up with the rest.

What do you think? I don’t know what inspired me to make this, but I think this came together rather well. I’m not entirely sure how well I can do the branching options or the story over all with a completely new pov, but we’ll see what happens. Should I keep going?

I completely forgot to describe myself in the story. Whoops! Just picture a brown-haired Oscar with open eyes and glasses and you pretty much have me XD
