EDIT: I've begun work on the sequel! s/9535147/1/Ezreal-A-True-Champion
Hello one last time, dear readers.
Congratulations! You've done it. You've reached the end of this massive story.
It's the first work of fiction I've ever successfully (more or less) completed. It spans over two-hundred pages in Microsoft Word - and that's with a tiny font.
Without the guidance of my readers, this story would've taken many, many wrong turns. Ezreal wouldn't have ended up with Lux, nor Michael with Katarina. Michael would have never taken the name Ryland, nor realized his Noxian origins. Zed's motives would have remained a mystery - they still are, in part - and Ian would've never seen his son.
So, to the readers who helped me mold this narrative: I owe you an immense debt.
And, without the readers who took time to write encouraging words, this story would still be a paltry Notepad document, leering at me from my computer's desktop. From time to time I would've gotten the itch to write, but I would have never acted on it without all your positive reviews.
A few of you have praised my skills, but it was mostly you, the readers, to whom this story owes its shape.
There are a few more things I'd like to add.
My name on League of Legends is the same as my nom de plume on - vOceanic. I welcome friend requests and would love to play ARAM alongside some Ezreals, Luxes and Katarinas.
Many of you have expressed the urge for a sequel or another work. Right now, I have a few ideas that I need help choosing from. If you see an idea you like - or if you have a champion or pairing you'd like to see - please let me know in the reviews or through a PM.
The ideas I have as of now are as follows:
Noxus: Origins of Night
When Noxian forces collide with an Ionian village, General Du Couteau is enchanted by a fae sorceress, an immigrant from the mysterious sands of Shurimana. After taking Vera as prisoner, she gives birth to two daughters. Both are gifted with beauty and tremendous power.
(This large, multipart story would trace Katarina's background. It would also explore the evolution of Noxian forces - Riven, Cassiopeia, Talon, Darius and Swain).
This story would explore the politics and combat at the heart of Freljord. Noxus would seek to become a uniting force for the Freljord. Ashe is tempted to take the Noxians' offer, and is displeased with her political marriage to Tryndamere.
Ashe and Darius would be a potential pairing.
Thus concludes Ezreal: Home at Last entirely. I hope you enjoyed it.
