Two of my favorite fanartists posting the same night?  Gah.

[personal profile] leyna  has just served up a five-star banquet of incredible FF fanart, paintings that include Balthier, Fang, Lulu — who should now be in a crossover adventuring party full of witty banter and icy put-downs — plus cameos by Lightning, Squall, Namingway (who?) and some Type-O character.

Go. Ogle. Swoon.
auronlu: (Bad Balthier)
How on earth had I missed [personal profile] twigcollins ' writing before now?

I've been reading a Fran & Balthier backstory fic and hooting. I don't normally laugh aloud while reading.

The fic is called "A Kind of Integrity".

“Nothing ever really goes right when I’m in lace stockings,” Balthier murmurs thoughtfully.

Except it totally does. Oh, Balthier.

ETA: "all the grandeur of some young, disheveled god of poorly thought out ideas." 

ETA the umpteenth: READ THIS STORY. It starts out as a slapstick comedy and turns into an edge-of-your-seat heartwrenching adventure with some real meat to it. One of those "more canon than canon" fics that fleshes out the world and gives the characters their due.

I think the vidder picked the song for the sound of it, without entirely considering its disturbing message-- one I don't think Fran and Balthier would endorse. Nonetheless, while I find the lyrics a little distracting, I love this video for capturing what I most liked in FFXII: Byzantine politics, acknowledgement that Ashe's "crusade" is problematic, and most of all the "formidable partners" relationship between Balthier and Fran. The choice of what scene to juxtapose with "No one knows men like Fran does" makes me grin.

Spoiler warning.
