-Summery, authors note and disclaimer-

Putting ones thoughts into a journal is the most meaningful way to tell a tale. The young Prince of Falena and his army prepare for a battle that should result into saving the Queen. Yet things change and fate toys with us in a tale of war, triumph and loss. PrinceXLyon.

There are a few things I'd like to ramble about. For starters, Times of Effect is a project that was inspired by a good friend of mine. The reason it's a project is because I'm trying to see if I can actually finish writing this, so note that I may stop writing at any point and I don't want that to happen. I have decided to make the way they speak more 'olden' so the way they talk doesn't sound more modern then it should do. Sorry for those who don't like the Lyon and Prince pairing but I've seen very little Lyon and Prince fanfictions, so allow me to add to the small collection. I've decided to use the Princes' name from the novelization, which is Freyjadour Falenas, Frey for short, though I would rather Faroush, yet Freyjadour sounds more 'princely'. Also I have named the army after the army on the first Suikoden, which was 'The Liberation Army'. Anyway I'd undyingly appreciate reviews. Like any authors, I find reviews a great ego boost and motive to keep writing, so please do review. About criticism… I accept it, of course, but please keep it constructive, but that doesn't mean I'll accept flames. I do not like harsh words towards something someone has put work into for others entertainment. Do NOT flame this fan fiction.

Disclaimer: I own nothing of Suikoden V. Not the sandals, castles, pretty boys, plots or such. They are all owned by Konami.

I hope readers enjoy and review.
