Of Heaven And Ocean (FFIV/FFVIII, PG-13)

Title: Of Heaven And Ocean
Fandom: FFIV/FFVIII
Characters/Pairing: Kain, Rydia, Edge
Rating: PG-13

Prompt: Rydia/Edge/Kain, as SeeDs. The three of them would make a devastating team with their complementary skills. Something that could be really cool would be them being sent to the continent with Odin's tower, and encountering him; how would they react with holes in their memories? What are their favourite GFs? Go wild! - lassarina

Notes: I felt bad taking a prompt from someone I knew for NewGamePlus. Apparently I made up for that by writing 15,000 words.

Teaser/summary/thumbnail:
Kain, Rydia, and Edge are the newest SeeDs to graduate from Baron Garden, and are sent on a mission to obtain a rogue Guardian Force in Centra. But wild Odin does not come easily, and the storm that follows as he and the other Guardians clash stirs up old memories, new truths, and a fate that could drown them all.

Same As It Never Was (FFVIII) || Reading Guide and Chapter List

Same As It Never Was

Fandom: FFVIII
Cast: Rinoa, Squall, Quistis, Laguna, Ellone (starring with Kiros, Watts, Zone, Ward, and Angelo)
Ships: Rinoa/Squall, Kiros/Laguna, Laguna/Squall, Quistis/Rinoa, Quistis/Squall, Quistis/Rinoa/Squall.
Rating: R (individual chapters PG-13 to R)
Warnings: Well, PLEASE reference the list of pairings for all relevant warnings!

Other Relevant Tags: oh shit it's a long final fantasy fic get in the car!, the fandom hell bus has arrived honk, no I am not going that way, sqwhale, incest, no seriously this fic is freaking long we are not kidding, meta, magic meta, suddenly bechdel, we ship everyone/kiros

Notes: Co-Written with [personal profile] justira, this is the fic that blossomed from our innocent desire to write some incest into one of the most epic and awesome projects I have ever worked on; it will likely be around 200K and 2011 by the time we're done with it.

Thanks: to [personal profile] renay, [livejournal.com profile] katmillia, and [livejournal.com profile] safety_caesars for beta, critique, comments, and cheering. ♥


Summary: Rinoa's gone public as a Sorceress and is campaigning for Timber's independence, Laguna's steering Esthar's re-emergence, Galbadia won't give up, Squall's dealing with the political fallout as Garden Commander -- and in case no one has enough on their plates, something's wrong with the Sorceress-Knight Bond. When terrorists attack Timber in the middle of Squall and Rinoa's argument over where the new Garden should go -- Timber or Esthar? -- they decide to take a break, hoping that if they can sort out the politics in their separate spheres, they can come back and sort through the quietly desperate mess of their private lives and repair their Bond.

Sorceresses still make the world nervous and Galbadia won't let Timber go; Esthar needs to come out of hiding and Garden needs to decide its place in the world. Four lives are unraveling -- but maybe, between them, they can find the answers...

Reading Guide

This guide, like the story itself, contains massive spoilers for FFVIII.





The Incest-Free Guide to Same As It Never Was )

Read the Squall-flavoured summaries if you really really really want to avoid any hint of squick, don't mind being spoiled for plot-relevancy, and don't mind missing out on the character development.

Read the Laguna summaries if you want to avoid being spoiled for the story's plot, want to see the character development, and generally want to get as close as possible to reading the story without the Laguna/Squall.

So, let's go folks!

Rating: PG-13

Summary: A competing mercenary team gives SeeD a run for their money while investigating mysterious ruins beneath Esthar's Presidential Palace. Irvine's amused. Quistis is not.

Notes: This stands alone, of course, but Balthier begs for a sequel in which he can be even more... well, Balthier. Plus my brain begs for a scene in which they can all make out. Thoughts?

For: [livejournal.com profile] astrangerenters, as promised so long ago. I am embarrassed and sorry that it took this long, and hope that you still enjoy it after so many weeks. >.>

Speed, Accuracy, and Precision (FFVII:OGC)

Speed, Accuracy, and Precision

Fandom: FFVII: OGC
Characters/Pairing: Elena/Tseng
Rating: PG

For: The Alphabet Meme, [livejournal.com profile] churched, for E: "Efficient weapon cleaning strategies, Tseng and Elena" ...and also for her birthday. Late, because I wouldn't be Sev if I delivered gifts on time, would I?

Notes: I am completely unaware of most of the FFVII Compilation besides OGC and AC, so I guess this is technically AU of Elena's backstory, whateverthefuck it is "officially".

Summary: Impressing Tseng once was difficult, but possible; impressing Tseng twice in a row was nearly impossible, because his standards rose right along with the quality of your work, until you had to work exponentially hard to surprise him.

Warnings: Absolute crack.

For: The Alphabet Meme, [livejournal.com profile] safety_caesars, for Z: "Z IS FOR ZEROMUS. AS IN ZEROMUS STARS IN AN EARLY 90S SITCOM."

Notes: I know it says "early 90s" but, uh, I didn't watch TV during… the 90s. >.> I picked Friends because at least I know the names of the characters and a little about the show. I don't know much beyond the names, though, so sorry if you're a Friends fan, because this is probably the anti-canon.

Becky forgive me this is all your fault

Summary: Joey's new roommate is a bit of a downer.

ALPHABET REQUEST MEME (AKA THIS ALPHABET SPELLS DOOM FOR SEV)

Just this morning I was complaining to Ira via email, "I feel so burnt-out on writing!" Hilariously, I do; I have lots of projects I'm working on, but the desire to write them is not there. So what's the best thing to do? Obviously, open up another ridiculous meme that I'll possibly never finish! And luckily, Nay posted this one today, and I hate asking for things from people and not leaving them opportunity to ask back. So. Uh. So here I am. Again, fandom. Again.

You know the game.

1. Pick a letter that hasn't been chosen (read the comments above you)
2. Leave me a prompt for that letter
3. Suggest a character or pairing for the prompt.
4. I will write a drabble or ficlet for your prompt.
5. i will attempt not to turn each prompt into a 25,000-word epic.

Any fandoms I know are game, although I reserve the right to leave hard ones until the end.

THE LIST! )

Yup, I'm prepared for doom. C'mon, guys! Give me something awesome.

Cowboy's Ballad (1/3) || FFVIII, AU

A Cowboy's Ballad of Love, Loss, and Lies
or
Seifer Almasy and the Achy-Breaky Badonkadonk
Chapter One: The Job Requirements Do Not Include Fashion Sense (1/3)


Fandom: FFVIII
Characters: Seifer, Irvine, Zell, Fujin, Raijin
Rating: PG-13
Flags/Warnings: AU.

Summary: AU. Seifer is hired as a bodyguard for the rapidly-rising young country star Irvine Kinneas by his overprotective manager, Zell Dincht. The job's fraught with the dangers of screaming fans, unfortunate wardrobe choices, and actual conversations, but all Seifer really has to do is sit back and make sure no one (but him) punches Kinneas in the face.

For: [livejournal.com profile] bottle_of_shine. Nay has been waiting for this for something going on two years, which is really quite embarrassing.
Thanks: to [livejournal.com profile] lassarina, for idea bouncing and much-needed beta.

Public Disclaimer: I’m quite nervous about this, as it has seriously been built up for years and I fear nothing can ever equal the awesomeness that was and is the original idea.
Further Disclaimer: I'm expecting frothing discussion over which title to choose when I post the rest of this (and also for ff.net).

Notes )

Chapter One )- - -

Stay tuned for Chapter Two, in which Seifer sends a series of terrible and profane postcards, Zell abuses muffins, Irvine actually wears a normal outfit, and chemistry rears its very unexpected head...
