Promise (MuRu)((A somewhat kinda dark take on what could've possibly happened in the canon aftermath of the Bi Gak arc. I don't own any of the TAL characters, that's all Kang Im's business, so show your love by supporting the webtoon on Naver~!))
Maru politely knocked on the door to his employer's bedroom, taking it in stride when it opened and there was nothing but pitch blackness to his eyes. Then, two yellow-orange eyes appeared, looking him up and down as he held up a paper bag with handles.
"Hello, Shade-Nim. I brought food for them. Is it okay to come in?"
A moment of pause, before the Yongma's body drew back, and Maru was able to enter the room. It had been a week since that day; they'd lost not only Baek-Jeong, but the young boy they'd been tricked into believing was 'Yu Jin'. Sae Ha, Ara, Ha Na Rin, the TALs who were left dispersed quickly, save for Cho-Yi. He returned to the restaurant.
Ignatio, still strange with eyes like a wildfire nearly the same shade as Maru, had
Tale of TAL: Ch 35((Because why the fuck not. It's been established I don't own TAL, Kang Im does. WONT STOP ME AND MY SIS FROM KICKING SHIT UP. Spoiler warning kinda passes off since now this Tale isn't Kang Im's story much anymore.))
Mir sank to his knees limply as Yangban stepped in front of him with rage written all over his face, fan spread wide as his students immediately played in a frenzy to clear the enemies away. The other TALs immediately went on the defensive, the zombies staggering and dragging themselves up. "Crap! I thought it was Bi Gak controlling them, but even though he's gone they're still moving!" Noah growled as he and Gamun Be moved towards Yu Jin and Ja Yun, Gotoya still bearing Ryu Guheul's uneasy weight.
"MIR! MIR, AUGH! MIR!" Haje was crying and screaming, trying to press the wadded up coat he'd taken off to Mir's bleeding side, the violinist limp and unmoving, but shallowly breathing.
Sae Ha started started for them, but his path was quickly blocked
Tale of TAL: Ch 34((Because why the fuck not. It's been established I don't own TAL, Kang Im does. WONT STOP ME AND MY SIS FROM KICKING SHIT UP. Warning: we DO spoil shit. Mostly what hasn't been translated yet from the Korean chapters, so there ARE spoilers if you haven't seen the non-translated pages.))
Min Jun's eye bulged from its socket, agony shredding through her veins. Her belly was spilling over Bi Gak's arm, blood dripping from her mouth as his psychotic golden gaze held her in a state of shock.
'...No...If I...die here...'
Ara's screaming rang in her ears as her body began to shut down.
'If...I die here...Oppa...Big Sis...'
Her warm life fluid soaking her skin and Bi Gak's sleeve cooled instantly.
'Hey, c'mon Panda! We can do something about this!'
Her eyelids slid a bit. Was that Cho-Yi's voice, that angry roar that sounded so far away?
'I know it might seem tough, but I know we can do it! We're the best team there is!'
Night's Melody (YangJin)((This was QUITE the challenge. I men, I'm used to writing the ass-ristocrat as the loser he is who needs a butt-whooping. But hey, that's just cause that's the way Kang Im created him, so support this musical bastard and the rest of the TAL cast in the original webtoon on Naver))
The air was frigid, but it wasn't anything Yangban wasn't used to.
It was winter, after all. The air grew colder as the environment rested for a few months. The aristocrat lived in the Jiri Mountains, where there was no modern accommodations such as heaters. Warmth came from the hot springs deep inside the earth, dug out by his students to create the living quarters they'd occupy while learning from him.
As such, he had no problems with staying outside as the noisy riffraff inside the house clamored about with Miss Ara.
A door opened, and light suddenly spilled onto his lap.
"...Do you mean to disturb me?"
A sheepish noise, like a youth's chuckle. "A-Actually, Yangban-Nim, I, uhm..." He turned h
