Bastion: Calamity Moon by Etherpendant Bastion: Calamity Moon by Etherpendant

...He emerged from that hole in the ground, into a wakin' nightmare. Everything that wasn't gone was twisted upside down. The world was frozen, air thick with ash. What few faces he saw on the street stared back at him with gray and vacant eyes. He found his wife-to-be asleep in her home. But when he reached out to her, she joined with all the ashes in the sky.

And so Zulf returned to where he proposed in the Hanging Gardens. And there he stood, as if the gods would answer him...

- Who Knows Where #3, Bastion

-----------------------------------------------

...He was on top of the world; his mission to unite the Ura and Caelondians was taking shape, his desire to travel the land and see the city had come true, he even found love there, proposed and was accepted. He had everything. A whole life of happiness, fulfillment and companionship lay ahead of him.

And then the Calamity took everything. From the highest peak of elation to the deepest, darkest valley of loss, falling like the stones that once made up the land around him...

I'm no longer involved in the fandom, but last I checked it was thriving on Tumblr :D Just search the "bastion" tag: [link]

Bought HIB5 last week, immediately played through Bastion.

SO AMAZING

I AM LISTENING TO THE SOUNDTRACK ON REPEAT NOW

:iconiloveyouplz:

Anyhow, I didn't really care for Zulf in my first playthrough though I did choose to save him. After, though, I started listening to the soundtrack in earnest, got hooked on "Mother, I'm Here (Zulf's Theme)". Youtube: [link] Liked the tune, didn't really get the lyrics though.

Then I stumbled on [link]. "...My approach for this one was to write a song that might be sung at funerals in the world of the game."

:iconcryforeverplz:

THE LYRICS MADE SENSE NOW. HORRIBLE SENSE.

oh zulf.
