O hai guys.

Hello long-time-no-see readers,

I don't bring fic unfortunately, but I did want to let people know, in case anyone was interested/wondering, that the website that hosted Sainan no Kekka wasn't renewed this year. Instead, readers can access SnK at the former mirror page, which is now the main page for the fic:

Sainan no Kekka

Thanks!!

FINAL FANTASY VI
Heart Funnel

[Other header stuff: PG-13. Celes, Kefka, Leo, Cid. Set pre-game.]
Celes Chere has grown up in a world of half-truths, and Kefka Palazzo is the only one who has never lied to her.
People's wishes cannot all come true at the same time.Collapse )

Author's addendum
Somehow in my own little confused universe, I have come to see this fic as a "companion" piece to my Final Fantasy VIII fic The Salt Flats (Seifer/Quistis). Besides the obvious physical similarities, such as the very similar writing style I used, I think that there are similar themes explored by both stories: destiny, childhood memories versus adult reality, atonement, and the consequences of amibition. The FFVIII fic does have a slightly happier conclusion; I guess you could argue that Heart Funnel is happy enough in its own right, as it deals mostly with Celes and how she overcomes her obstacles in the end, but to me, it's more of a bittersweet ending as she reflects on what she's lost, while Quistis at the end of Salt Flats reflects on what she has gained.

Kefka was a challenging character to write, not only because the FFVI canon gives him little to no backstory, but also because I was striving to portray him not as he was in the game, but as the person who Celes and Cid and the others must have known before he became that way. Obviously, he was not always stark raving mad; from the short history we are given, I infer that Kefka was a very smart, very forward-thinking man who simply got caught up in his own ambition. (Qualifier: Although of course I do very much enjoy stark raving mad Kefka, for it is refreshing to have a villain who is villainous simply for its own sake, without a terrible and angsty past. AND HE IS NOT A WAITER)

I suppose you could think of this fic as a love story, much as The Salt Flats is at its core a kind-of-love-story, but more of a love story dealing with memories and places and nostalgia and loss than the (more obvious) romantic overtones.

Anyway, that's my two-cent ramble. Hope you enjoyed, and please leave a comment and let me know what you thought ^_^

Soo....because adrenalynnrush's nagging worked, I've started posting this again. XD Enjoy!
Earlier parts can be found at Fanfiction.net

FINAL FANTASY VII
Gunpowder and Firecrackers

[Other header stuff: PG-13, Rude/Tifa, Rufus/Yuffie/Reno, AU to DoC, spoilers up to end of AC]

It is fifteen years after Meteor, thirteen years after Kadaj's defeat. Rufus Shinra, leader of the world philanthropic organization Green Earth, has been having odd dreams about Cloud Strife, about Sephiroth, about the mysterious town of Nibelheim. In a world where peace is as fragile and elusive as the voices of the lost Ancients, the old members of AVALANCHE and Shinra struggle to piece together the secrets of the Lifestream and Jenova's legacy in a race against time to save the ones they love.

chapter 14::I wish it made sense, like a joke that no one gets.Collapse )

Uh...yeah. I break my long non-fanfic silence to bring you a Final Fantasy thing...kind of short, but why not?

Setzer and Edgar could be brothers, princes, the two of them - so refined and elegantly graceful, not rough and clumsy like Sabin Figaro.

For enishi_sama, a Zack and Cloud friendship fic long overdue. As a disclaimer, I am not familiar with any of the Compilation canon that comes before the game, so this might be a bit AU. If so, sorry 'bout that =P Nothing much happens in this though, so it's probably ok...

FINAL FANTASY VII
Letters Home

[Other header stuff: PG, Zack, Cloud, pre-game]
Zack writes letters to someone in Midgar. Sephiroth goes for a walk. Cloud reminisces.
I miss that town...so hard to stay, so hard to leave itCollapse )

Next up is Tifa in ch 13 of Gunpowder & Firecrackers, and then ch 13 of Cacophony of Angels (yes, yokozuki, you read that right! XD I'm actually working on it...)

I've played Final Fantasy VIII three times. The first two times, I didn't like Zell. For some reason this time, he's become one of my favorite characters in the game (and not only for the names of his limit breaks, which are the same as Tifa's). I've always been interested in the side-effects of memory loss brought on by the use of the GFs, and I thought I'd explore that here with Zell's interaction with his family before the game story begins.

This is a sort of companion piece to my FFVII Marlene story, Mockingbird.

Apologies for running behind on this fic. I'd like to think I have a least ONE series fic that I can have regular chapters out for, but apparently not XD It's Reno this time.

yokozuki, don't know if you saw the Spirited Away drabble I posted for you last night. LJ's time system went screwy. It's here.

The new issue of the imaginarybeasts webzine is out, and I must say it looks fantastic. The theme was "love".

Please go check out the stories written by some really talented authors. Yours truly also has one up, entitled Elevator Music. Signups for the next issue are also ongoing now, if anyone is interested in writing original fiction, or drawing some art. ^_^

Subject:[rambling] Request post again!
Security:Public

Here's another one of these ever-so-often request threads! I know I've got a ton of series I SHOULD be working on, but...as happens from time to time, I need a kick in the butt, so I figured I might as well get it from you guys! I know I've been working on a lot of Final Fantasy VII stuff lately, so here's your chance to get something else written from me if you want it. XD

I'm open to any all requests for one-shots in the fandoms I'm familiar with below:

anime/game/manga
Cowboy Bebop
Escaflowne
Final Fantasy VII/AC (haven't played Dirge yet, sorry)
Final Fantasy VIII
Fruits Basket (only the anime)
Fushigi Yuugi
Gundam Wing
Gundam X
Kino no Tabi
Macross (any series)
Shoujo Kakumei Utena
Tokyo Babylon
Touch
Versailles no Bara

movies
Anything Ghibli, esp Sen to Chihiro (aka Spirited Away)
Casshern
Moon Child
Nana
Star Wars (except the New Jedi Order)

books
Howl's Moving Castle
Musashi
Romance of the Three Kingdoms (does fic even exist for this?)


I know a lot of people would like to see more FMA fic from me, but sadly enough it's been years since I've seen that series and I don't remember much about it because I never saw the ending. Same with Initial D...two series I would love to go back and finish, but haven't.

I realize I still owe several people fics, as listed on the sticky post at the top of my LJ. Also, consider Cacophony a given for requests *groan* Have you ever had one of those fics where you know how it's going to end and you've already written it a dozen times in your head, so you don't feel motivated to write it all down? That's how that one is. I'll get around to it one of these days. At least it's not a matter of writer's block this time.

Anyway...request away!
