Crossing the Bar

Brian Yip, aka Night or NightDragon, the young man who wrote “Hero of Heroes” aka “Ryu and Chun-Li Forever.” It’s fitting that with the main story of this project complete, I finally got to see what he looked like. I only wish I could have talked to him, maybe even worked on this project together with him. Thanks to David “Duake” Muich for the help finding the video link.

Brian, you set the bar for a Ryu/Chun-Li story. I hope somehow you get to read the work my people and I have produced, and hope that my people and I have raised the Ryu/Chun-Li bar high enough that CAPCOM, UDON, and the producers of Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist will see it and take it even higher.

You can see the memorial video for Brian below.

(May 24, 1980 – Feb 26, 2010)

Sunset and evening star,
      And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
      When I put out to sea,

   But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
      Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
      Turns again home.

   Twilight and evening bell,
      And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
      When I embark;

   For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
      The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
      When I have crost the bar.
“Crossing the Bar”– Alfred, Lord Tennyson
