First of all, I would like to apologise to any of my followers who got the impression that i would produce regular content. That… was never going to happen. No excuse other than laziness and an attention span shorter than what were we talking about? I suppose it doesn’t matter. Oh look, I’m uploading something!
So yeah, I’ve been wanting to do something to this effect for awhile now. There are a lot of parallels between Jack Noir and Black Waltz 3, mainly in their design. The idea grew from there. In case it needs saying, ‘Valse Noir’ is literally ‘Black Waltz’ in french, so that was kinda cool.
In the game Final Fantasy IX, Black Waltz 3 is a magical golem-like creature sent to retrieve Princess Garnet and bring her back to her kingdom of Alexandria alive. However, he is a creation of war, and, in his own words, ‘exists only to kill’. At one point during the game, Garnet can face a damaged Black Waltz 3 alone (provided her two companions are KO’d) and he opts to HIT HIMSELF rather than attack her.
The scene itself is an edit of this page from the webcomic Homestuck. Here, Valse Noir is caught between his unfathomable bloodlust and his overpowering orders, more than a little similar to the original scene from Homestuck.
