Castlevania: Dusk of Sorrow - Chapter 4
It was shortly after nightfall when Alucard decided to wake Soma.
"Soma," he said as he approached the bed.
Soma didn't respond so Alucard tried again.
"Soma."
Again no response.  The dhampir gently pushed at the sleeping teen's shoulder.
"Soma, wake up.  It's getting late."
Soma's eyelids briefly fluttered and then he opened one eye a crack, glancing blearily at Alucard.  "Hmm?"
"Night has fallen.  It's time for us to set forth."
Soma yawned faintly as he rolled over onto his back and rubbed his eyes.  Alucard moved out of the way for him as he got off the bed to stretch himself.  He put on his necklace and boots before he headed into the bathroom.  After using the toilet, he washed his hands in the sink and then splashed some cold water on his face to wake himself up.  He turned off the water when he was done and grabbed a hand towel to dry off his hands and face.
Soma grabbed his coat and slipped it on before he and Alucard left the room.

Literature
Castlevania: Dusk of Sorrow - Chapter 3
It was about midday (Eastern European Time) when Soma and Alucard arrived in Transylvania.  Standing on a tall hill under a crystal blue sky, Soma set his face against the wind, his eyes on the new Castlevania in the distance.  He still couldn't believe he was going back to that place.  He glanced over at Alucard, who seemed to be reminiscing as he too had his gaze fixed upon the castle.  Soma brushed against him companionably and they started walking again.
They descended down the hill and then arrived at a town near Hoia Baciu Forest that looked as though it were straight out of the Victorian-era.  They entered the town and walked down the cobblestone street.
Soma thought it was a fine place, noisy and full of wonderful smells, since it was a big town with so many people.  There were convenience stores, eateries, bakeries, and all other types of markets, some of them two stories high.  There was also a farmers' market stocked with tomatoes, corn, ca

Castlevania: Dusk of Sorrow - Chapter 2
"Soma....? Soma, are you all right....?"
Soma heard the voice as he slowly drifted back to consciousness.  He then felt someone gently shake him before he heard the voice again.
"....Soma, wake up...Wake up."
"...Wh...what...?" he murmured as he opened his eyes.
His vision was blurred, fuzzy.  Mina's concerned face slowly swam into focus in front of him.  She was kneeling beside him where he lay on the ground.  She had placed her purse under his head to support it.
"Mina..."
"Are you okay, Soma?"
"I think so..."
Soma slowly sat up, feeling a little disoriented, and he shook his head, trying to clear it.  Mina stood up after a moment, gently helping him to his feet.
"Are you sure you're okay?" she asked as she brushed him off.
"Yeah..." he replied wearily.  Then he noticed Arawn was nowhere to be seen.  "What the hell happened?"
"Mr. Arikado saved you," Mina answered as she picked up her purse.
"Huh? Arikado's here?"
"Indeed," came the deep, rich voice

Literature
Castlevania: Dusk of Sorrow - Chapter 1
It was a beautiful autumn night in Chiyoda, located in Tokyo, Japan.
Soma Cruz had just gotten done going out to dinner with his girlfriend Mina Hakuba at one of the many local restaurants after a fun filled day of traveling around the city with her.  They were now sitting down, relaxing by the moat in Chidorigafuchi Park, an area around one of a total of twelve moats that surrounded the Tokyo Imperial Palace and that was known for its splendid cherry blossoms every spring.  Late in the cherry blossom season, the surface of the moat would become almost completely covered in pink petals.  Strictly speaking, there was no actual park in the area.  There was a cemetery, a path, a boat rental house, and this moat.
"Anything else you want to do?" he asked her.
Soma was young, only 19-years-old, with short hair that was as white as snow and rather pale skin.  His almond-shaped eyes were silver-gray under thick brows and framed by long eyelashes.  He was normally

Running in the 90s
Continuing the 20th anniversary celebration of Symphony of the Night, we have a GIF of everyone's favorite dhampir 😊 I have been hooked on that catchy-ass meme of a song "Running in the 90s" from the anime Initial D and I have also seen countless 90s tribute videos on YouTube that feature this song.  Considering SotN came out in the 90s, it only made sense to do this 😀

It was shortly after nightfall when Alucard decided to wake Soma.

"Soma," he said as he approached the bed.

Soma didn't respond so Alucard tried again.

"Soma."

Again no response.  The dhampir gently pushed at the sleeping teen's shoulder.

"Soma, wake up.  It's getting late."

Soma's eyelids briefly fluttered and then he opened one eye a crack, glancing blearily at Alucard.  "Hmm?"

"Night has fallen.  It's time for us to set forth."

Soma yawned faintly as he rolled over onto his back and rubbed his eyes.  Alucard moved out of the way for him as he got off the bed to stretch himself.  He put on his necklace and boots before he headed into the bathroom.  After using the toilet, he washed his hands in the sink and then splashed some cold water on his face to wake himself up.  He turned off the water when he was done and grabbed a hand towel to dry off his hands and face.

Soma grabbed his coat and slipped it on before he and Alucard left the room.  They thanked Pedersen for his wonderful hospitality as they headed out the door.

It was a beautiful night, still and frosty.  A dark wind blew clouds over the face of the moon and over the stars as the twosome left town and entered Hoia Baciu Forest.  All around them the trees gleamed like white streamers in the moonlight.  Suddenly, Soma noticed something else gleaming in the moonlight so he stopped to see what it was.  It was a small puddle of what appeared to be some kind of silver-blue colored liquid.  He had never seen the likes of it before.

"Alucard!" he called.  "Come look at this!"

Alucard came over and he seemed instantly intrigued when he laid eyes on the strange puddle.  He got down on one knee near the liquid, dipped a nearby stick into it, and then examined it carefully.  Soma kneeled beside him as the son of Dracula carefully sniffed at the liquid.

"Do you know what this is, Soma?" Alucard asked as he let the youngster take a look at the silvery fluid that coated the tip of the stick.

"Of course not," Soma replied, taking the stick.  "Never seen it before."

"This is unicorn blood."

Soma's eyes went wide with shock.  "D-did you say unicorn blood?"

"Yes."

Soma had heard plenty of fairy tales about unicorns from Mina when he was a child, but he never thought they actually existed.  "So you're telling me unicorns are real?"

Alucard stood up.  "In Castlevania, they are.  I have encountered them quite a few times there.  They're one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever laid eyes on."

Soma stood as well, throwing the stick into the darkness.  "Now I want to see one."

"You just might since Arawn is trying to replicate Castlevania."

The twosome moved along down the dirt path, tuning their ears to the rustles and calls that brought music to the forest.  The moon shot beams of light, like silver swords, through the tree branches, shimmering unexpectedly on the dead tree leaves and the fragile blades of ferns.

Soma had always found forests appealing.  "I've had dreams about this."  He spoke half to himself as he said this.

Alucard stopped, turning to face him.  "Dreams about what?"

"About being in the forest."  Soma stopped as well, rolling his eyes towards the darkness at their right.  "Just like here and...I'm looking for you, Mina, Yoko, Hammer, and Julius."  His gaze snapped back to Alucard's.  "Have you ever had dreams like that?"

"I can't say that I have."

They crossed a narrow stream that bubbled placidly.  As they did, Soma noticed Alucard looked worried.

"You're worried about that unicorn, aren't you? The one the blood came from."

"Honestly, Soma, yes.  Something attacked it, but the question is what?  Unicorns are powerful and majestic animals.  It's a creature of beauty and purity.  It does not deserve death."

"Then let's go look for it.  I already told you I wanted to see one."

"Very well."

They pressed on.  Although Soma's eyes were seeing the wonders of the night, his ears were ever alert, listening for any sound that would tell the location of the injured unicorn.

"There are wargs and werewolves in Castlevania if I remember correctly," he said to Alucard after a while.  "Do you think maybe a warg or a werewolf attacked the unicorn?"

"I said unicorns are powerful creatures, didn't I? Wargs are not fast enough to catch one.  Physically impossible.  A werewolf, maybe."

They came to a fork in the path, dark and still, shot through with moonlight.

"Let's split up," Soma suggested.  "We'll cover more ground."

Alucard nodded.  "Just remember to keep your eyes and ears open."

"Will do."

Soma took the right path while Alucard took the left path.  The white-haired hero walked in silence.  By now, every nerve in his body was drawn up as tight as a biwa string.  Sharp-eyed and with ears open, he moved on, stopping every now and then to listen.  There were still spots of the silver-blue blood here and there along the winding path.  As he walked by a tree stump, he caught a flash of movement out of the corner of his eye.  He glanced over at where he had seen the movement, but nothing was there now.

The young man looked around, listening carefully.

That's when he heard it!

A faint crunching sound.  It sounded like someone or something was walking over dead leaves nearby.  Soma tried to pinpoint exactly where it was coming from, but a few seconds later, the sound faded away.  He felt a drop of sweat run down his face and his heart was pounding, but he pressed on.  He walked more slowly, ears straining for the faintest sound.  He kept looking nervously over his shoulder.  He had the nasty feeling he was being watched.  He was glad Alucard had come with him.  Just like in Chidorigafuchi Park, the very moment the dhampir sensed that the boy was in danger, he would come.

The white-haired youth walked deeper and deeper into the forest until he came out on the gravel bar of a wide river that was fast and rocky with a thundering waterfall tumbling down the face of a cliff.  He walked through the clear, frothy water and the scenery took a dramatic turn from the deep, dank river basin to a stunning old-growth forest where the moonlight speared down in shafts and pools.  The ancient trees grew straight as soldiers, tall as giants, their tops whispering like the sea in the wind that couldn't reach the forest floor.  

Soma thought the unicorn blood seemed to be getting thicker.  There were splashes of it on the roots of a tree as though the poor creature had been thrashing around in pain close by.  He could see a clearing ahead and noticed that something bright white was gleaming on the ground in the filtered moonlight.  He walked over to see what it was.

It was the unicorn, lying on its side.  Soma had never seen anything so beautiful and yet so sad at the same time.  The horse-like creature's legs were sprawled out and its mane was spread on the dark leaves.  It was still alive, he could hear it breathing.  He kneeled down beside the unicorn and gently pet its muzzle in an attempt to comfort it.

Alucard was right.  It was one of the most beautiful things Soma had ever seen.

The young man ran his fingers through the unicorn's pearly white mane.  He had never felt anything so smooth.  It was like silk.  He even touched the large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead.  He noticed there was a huge open wound on the unicorn's side.  The silver-blue blood was flowing profusely from it, clearly indicating that an artery had been severed.  

The unicorn suddenly lifted its head, startling Soma as it let out a distressing whinny.  Using its front hooves, it pushed itself halfway up.  Its eyes were wide open, staring uncomprehendingly into his.  He could see the lights behind those eyes fading.  Stopping in its effort of getting up, still staring at him, its mouth opened as if it were going to make another sound.  Nothing came out and instead it fell back to the ground.  It stopped trying to move and was still.

There was now only a small flicker of life in the unicorn's eyes, but it was a small, distant, failing thing.  It was like a stone dropped into a dark void and gently fading from sight.  The wounded creature took a few more breathes before that last flicker of life finally vanished and its eyes were left with only the peaceful, indifferent gaze of the dead.

Soma was saddened by this, but he reminded himself that there was nothing he could have done.  He stood up and started walking away, deciding to go look for Alucard.  Suddenly, he heard the crunching noise again.  He looked helplessly around as horror bloomed in his eyes.

Then he saw them—two solid cobalt blue eyes—staring at him from the shadowy foliage of an enormous tree.  This made him stop dead in his tracks.

Soma could make out the bulk of a large animal crouching on a huge branch, close to the trunk of the tree.  Then it moved.  He could hear the scratching of razor sharp claws on the bark.  It stood up on all fours and moved out of the shadows, jumping down from the branch to the ground.  He saw it clearly as it passed between the moonlight and him.  It was a tall, hairy, muscular human-like beast that resembled a werewolf.  He stood transfixed.  The monster reached the dead unicorn and began to feast upon the corpse.

There was no doubt in Soma's mind that this beast was the one that had attacked the unicorn and was returning for more.  Turning his back to the horrible sight, he shut his eyes.  The muscles in his stomach knotted and jerked.  A nauseating sickness spread over his body.  He couldn't watch.

Turning back around, Soma saw the monster raise its head and look right at him, its eyes and the unicorn blood that coated its lips glowed palely with reflected moonlight.  It stood up on two legs and advanced towards him, growling low and throaty.
Castlevania: Dusk of Sorrow - Chapter 4
A novel length fan fic that takes place half a year after the events of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. 

Soma Cruz is attacked by a mysterious old sorcerer named Arawn while out on a date in Tokyo with Mina Hakuba.  Arawn reveals that his intentions are to get Soma's heart so that he can extract Dracula's soul from it and rule the world as the new Dark Lord by harvesting its power.  However, Arawn's first attempt on Soma's life is thwarted by Genya Arikado, who says that he has encountered the old wizard before.  After the incident, Arikado tells Soma that Arawn has constructed a new Castlevania over in Romania's Hoia Baciu Forest.  Now it's up to Soma to save the world once again.

It was about midday (Eastern European Time) when Soma and Alucard arrived in Transylvania.  Standing on a tall hill under a crystal blue sky, Soma set his face against the wind, his eyes on the new Castlevania in the distance.  He still couldn't believe he was going back to that place.  He glanced over at Alucard, who seemed to be reminiscing as he too had his gaze fixed upon the castle.  Soma brushed against him companionably and they started walking again.

They descended down the hill and then arrived at a town near Hoia Baciu Forest that looked as though it were straight out of the Victorian-era.  They entered the town and walked down the cobblestone street.

Soma thought it was a fine place, noisy and full of wonderful smells, since it was a big town with so many people.  There were convenience stores, eateries, bakeries, and all other types of markets, some of them two stories high.  There was also a farmers' market stocked with tomatoes, corn, cabbages, potatoes, eggs, chickens, hams, and more.  It even had a spot reserved for seafood such as crabs, oysters, and fish.

Having endured the nearly ten hour long flight here from Japan, the reincarnation of Dracula felt the pangs of hunger gnawing at his stomach.

"I'm starving..." he said to Alucard, trying his hardest not to sound like he was whining.

"Very well," the dhampir replied.  "I know of a place that we can go to so that you may be fed."

He led Soma to a place called the Hart and Sole Inn and they went inside.  

The interior of the inn had a kind of “modern rustic” feel with smooth wood flooring, cedar ceilings, custom made teak furniture, and insulated walls so it would be super warm during the winter time.  The owner was Pedersen, a middle-aged man with a thick beard, and he greeted them when they came in the door.  After getting the pair checked in, he led them to the dining area and treated them to a meal of salt pork, fried potatoes, gravy, hot corn bread, fresh butter, wild bee honey and fresh, ice-cold milk.

Soma chowed down on the food and drank quarts of the milk.  "This food is amazing," he said in between bites, then he looked at Alucard.  "You're not eating?"

"My body isn't like yours, Soma," Alucard explained.  "It may function almost the same as yours, but my kind do not require food or water to sustain ourselves."

Soma nodded as he continued to stuff his face.  Alucard just sat quietly and watched.  He wanted Soma to build up his strength for the task ahead so he didn't comment on the teen's table manners, but never in his life had he seen a mere mortal with such a seemingly insatiable appetite.

Soma ate and drank until his stomach felt like it was going to pop.  He leaned back in his chair and let out a resounding belch.

"Excuse me," he said.  "That was perfect."

Alucard grimaced, but he didn't say anything.  He then noticed how Soma's eyelids would droop drowsily before the youngster would forcibly ram them open.

"Tired?" the dhampir asked.

Soma nodded.  "It's been hours since I last got any sleep..."

Pedersen had overheard them and showed them to their room.  It had a comfortable sofa, beautiful wooden custom furnishings, a 42-inch flat screen television (with international channels in English), wi-fi internet, a king size bed, and a wonderful mountain view.  

Soma hung up his coat, placed his necklace on the bureau, and slipped off his boots before getting into the bed.  It was very comfortable and the sheets smelled fresh.  As he started to settle down to fall asleep, Alucard came over and gently pulled the blanket up over the white-haired teen's shoulders.

"Thanks," Soma said.

"No problem, my friend."  The dhampir gently patted the boy's head.  "Now just relax and rest.  We depart at sundown."

Soma smiled as soft, steady blinks set in, then he yawned.  His vision promptly melted into a haze of lashes and a quiet noise of satisfaction escaped him as his eyes gently closed.  He was snoring almost immediately.

Alucard stood quietly and watched Soma sleep for a moment.

Should he?

He should.

The dhampir bent down, pressing a soft and quick kiss to the boy's forehead.  "Rest well, Soma."

I wanted to apologized if I came off a little rude when we first chatted about my story. The reason it might not make sense is because I hadn't worked on a crossover in a while and I do like if I could be told how to improve. I was using my games as a reference perhaps a bit too much. ^^" I am almost finished with my third story and planned a 4th one but that one may be a true test of what I could do as that one will be completely fan made. I do love the Castlevania games and own three. Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, and Order of Ecclesai. so while if you read my story, please feel free to tell me how I can improve to make it better. I might make a separate thing to try an explain what the crossover is supposed to be about to help clear things up till I can fix it. Your opinion would be much appreciated. ^^
