Me and my bizarre shoulder kink. *hides face* I can't remember what possessed me to let slip this personal foible, but I can't really regret the indiscretion, since Flynn-the-Cat keeps catering to it.

Putting this here for ease of future ogling; thank you!

Front: Lulu and Fang

I'm always interested in mentoring and big sister / little sister dynamics between female characters, so of course I latched onto the early interactions between Rydia and Rosa in FFIV. That scene on Mt. Hobbs inspired me to sketch this:

I've written Fran tutoring Penelo in black magic, Fran tutoring Lulu (of all people), and some Yuna and Lulu magic-meta, so this slots into that trope.

Have you ever stumbled across something in an old folder you really don't remember writing or drawing? This is clearly my clumsy drawing, and it's a scene I am sure I wrote at some point, but I'd completely forgotten I tried to illustrate it.

So. Doodle. Set about a year prior to FFX, Lulu and Luzzu.

Title: "Message"

(If you've not played the game in a while, it's the moment when Lulu learned what had happened to Chappu.)

I've always liked Luzzu, partly because of his rueful "she hit me, too" comment about Lulu (direct Japanese translation: "She has furious fists!"), and partly because he's trying so hard to keep the cadets from getting themselves redshirted. 

The following ficbit is a backstory bridge picking up with the moment when Luzzu got on Lulu's bad side, segueing to the "Lulu's Contempt" FMV in which she rips Wakka a new one, and indirectly providing backstory for the "Kimahri Pounces* Tidus" FMV the next morning. Not all that exciting, but, character stuff, which used to be my forte. 


She Hit Me, Too... )

A reader on my Final Fantasy X Inscriptions webpage has managed to decipher one of the few inscriptions that had me stumped: Cid's tattoo.

Quoth "Sayosa":
His tattoo says 'Love' just as Don Corneo of Final Fantasy seven had inscribed onto his head, though I see no resemblance between both of the characters..

Very curious!

There are a few other surprises hidden in the inscriptions -- I'm pretty sure I've found the name of Seymour's mother, for example -- but ... Don Corneo?!

Well, well. This hardly qualifies as a drabble, but I found myself totally incapable of limiting these two fascinating characters to 100 words.

Some months ago, I posted a comment in [ profile] capslock_ff that wasn't capslocked. You know what the penalty is? One must create a Sephiroth/Barret fic or fanart as penance! Small wonder that I disappeared from fandom for months. So, anyway, in light of recent discussions, it seemed like it was time to pay my penalty.


Brace yourselves.

I seem to have missed the bus on this one entirely, since I see it was posted in [profile] springkink slightly over a year ago, but... GUH. One can't follow everything.

For those who may have missed it:

Title: The Many Adventures of Walking Man
Final Fantasy X, AU
Auron/Braska, Jecht
Two-parter: second half has some NC-17 bits
Part I   Part II

As some of you know, I tend to lean towards stories where at least one of the main roles is a female character (especially erotica), but that's utterly irrelevant when you've got a well-written story. The characterizations and speech patterns in this one are spot-on, which is my main fanfiction junkie kink, and there's that complex blend of idealism, sadness, and prejudice that makes Spira epic, tragic, poignant and real. Secondary characters have meaningful secondary roles. There's even mythology, and a running gag based on Native American mythology that is spot-on for the Al Bhed.

I know I was having a discussion with someone here a while back about the fact that Auron/Braska seemed almost canon; at the least there seemed to be a certain amount of unacknowledged love (or unrequited), yet most of the Auron's-past yaoi is with Jecht. Here's a believable (and painful) Auron/Braska story that explores the flaws of all three characters beautifully.

Anyway, it's worth reading, if you missed it the first go-round.

Yet again, icon futzing while listening to the game.

Ran across a few good authors on Poor dears.

Two recs, one of which I posted already on [ profile] bangonfic:

And Shut the Gates of Mercy on Mankind by sagdragon, good one-shot about Isaaru coming to grips with failure following the Via Purifico. Interesting post-game conversation with Yuna about mercy. K rated.

Foundations by Broken Visage, dark one-shot envisioning Zanarkand's despotic dynasty and the birth of Yu Yevon. This is one of those great pieces that brings to life a period about which we know almost nothing, defines a culture and characters with a few deft brushstrokes, and hints at a whole lot more backstory by allusions, the way Tolkien will casually drop in a reference to the "cats of Queen Beruthiel" and leave you going, "wait, wait, tell me more!" Rated K+.
This author looks skilled, and I suggest browsing further -- I haven't yet but intend to.

Bah. That gratuitously cheesy AU fanfic I posted a rough draft of ages ago under friendslock refuses to die. I give up. Here. Make of it what you will. A new bit just wrote itself when I was trying to poke at Reurrection again. Some of you know where this is headed; it will be crossposted in the appropriate place when the time comes.

Four chapters should probably get it out of my system. Here's ch. 1.

Title: Till Death Do Us Part
Characters: Lulu and friends
Rating: PG-13 (Violence)
Summary: Six years into the Eternal Calm, all is not well in Spira. Wakka is gone. Now Lulu must avenge him or sacrifice herself to protect all those she holds dear this side of the Farplane.

I'm a little rusty. I decided to start playing FFX again to get my groove back.

Title: Prelude to Pilgrimage
FFX, Besaid, the night before Yuna sets out on her pilgrimage
Characters: Lulu, Luzzu, Kimahri, Wakka
Rating: G
Words: 820

Luzzu writhed against the leaves in stoic silence. Lulu drew her knuckles to her mouth, barely noticing the sting. )
