that's what it looks like but I dunno... I mean it's possible but I doubt it coz I doubt he would ever have long hair.

But Dark and Anti are 'alternate' versions of Jakc and Mark, so if he was an alternate Felix he could totally prefer longer hair since he's not ACTUALLY Felix

As I write this, I've been mulling this over for hours, reading it over and over, allowing it time to settle, clarify, and finally turn the gears in my head. Knowing what I know behind the scenes has only made the subtext of this minific all the more somber. The wishes and expectations of his paternal figure, the protests and premonitions of his maternal figure, the allusions to what sort of doom and heartache awaits this mischievous child in his future... they're palpable and familiar, enough to be painful.

The mini-story feels bright, pastel, and full of bloom lighting in my cinematic mind to the point of the setting being almost dreamlike, and yet I can see glimpses of the grim adult life awaiting the little boy being superimposed on the events presented in here. Leaping and swooping effortlessly against the forces that threaten his kind like it was his calling, and it's clear that in this moment, his calling it is. ... at least until what sort of terrible fate his matron feared would come to claim him.

As an aside, I'm impressed to find that I'm not the only one who's caught onto the meaning of one's name. It makes sense and it is eerily fitting, implying that, in a way, his path had already been determined for him from the get go. The saddest bit is that he doesn't question it. He embraces it. So young, and he is wholeheartedly living up to the prophecy that is his own name... even if he's just a little child playing and dreaming as little children are wont to do.

I'd best wrap this up now, or I'll wind up rambling again. ^^;

I'm so very glad you took the time to write and refine this minific, and I'm equally glad I had the chance to sit down and give this the attention it needed. The feature from Mask is well deserved. Thank you so very much for sharing this. :3

:D Yea, I've really been mulling over Mark's name and it's meaning for a while now, and I found it out even before I discovered Mask's work - it's spooky how well it fits into this narrative. I'm glad also someone else caught it! 

The funny thing is, this little mini-story had a lot of different things going for it when I was writing it, and I was sorta fighting myself over what direction it should take. In one idea Mark's dad is suggested to be very sick, though still prime and healthy enough to see his son grow up, but I figured that was just...too much. (Mark's actual dad died so...yeah, no.) I am pleased I didn't get too flowery and vague so as the clues and allusions are missed or misinterpreted. That's always a big worry with something like this..

But yeah. The name, the people who surrounded him in early childhood, the path he clearly followed as an adult...it's sort of all there, just waiting to be laid out. Minific I just wrote aside, I think at this point in theorizing and reading, I don't believe Mark (this 'verse Mark at least) actually /is/ Dark, or has any plans to become that way through his own power or another forces. (but that's just my thoughts.) What I tried to write here was...I guess, as you correctly figured, a more 'prophetic'  version of events, where there is a big risk of 'Dark' happening whether others want it or not, and the only thing they can do is prepare Mark to survive what will cause such a thing. (I'm sorry I just restated what you already knew :P

But yeah...happy kid, set life...unknowingly running head-on blindfolded to a fate that would chase him if he were to attempt to flee it anyways.

Thank you for your words!! I'm very glad you enjoyed it!

I was trying so hard not to giggle at the beginning, and then at the end my heart hurt. Their poor family. Stop playing with my emotions :'(
Baby Dark is such a cute little troublemaker oh my god XD. He was probably the type of kid who broke his arm like, five times by jumping off of high places because he wanted to fly before he was ready, haha.
This was very well-written and a great pleasure to read! 
Also the idea that Dark (at least young Dark) was self conscious about his pink wings is so adorable dear lord. Yes Dark, I agree with your mother; they're cute.

:> no. Never. Writers live off the tears of their readers, happy or sad lmao. Seriously though, babby Dark is suck a hand-ful kid, maybe even as much as or more so then lil Anti. We just don't know yet. (He /would/ be the kid that's always attempting to fly and his parent's just know when to anticipate it and scoop him off the stairs or roof or table without even looking up from what they're doing.) 

They say monsters are created, not born. Thank you for reading and enjoying!!

Maybe that person isn't his dad. From previous artworks I get the impression that Dark and Anti were from another time or dimension, wear they grew up to be guards or fighters like soldiers for the people in that place. Maybe this is just little dark annoying one of those guards.

Maybe this isn't baby Dark. Maybe this is baby Mark, and Dark has always been apart of him. I doubt it though, Just trying to throw some more theories out there
