Our Story So Far: On a rampage to destroy the temples of Yevon, Sin transports Isaaru and companions to Bikanel Island, where Wakka and Rikku are raising a family. Gippal gives Isaaru's party a lift to the new Al Bhed Home.

The flyer wobbled under the weight of extra passengers, accompanied by Rikku's swearing in two languages. Maroda rode white-knuckled, his brother with serene resignation. Elma, the machina-phobe, clung to her seat with a dour expression, but gave herself away with a whoop when the flier hopped over a sand-worm that unexpectedly rose behind a crumbling ruin. Auron simply played barnacle. Gippal was quiet too, for once, focused on steering a smooth course for the sake of his unsecured passengers.

They were streaking towards a gray hump emerging from the dunes. The shape soon resolved itself into a bulbous, unlovely hulk of an airship with the profile of an oversized bathtub, its hull a crude patchwork of fins, engine pods, exhaust ports and mismatched panels. It was moored on the southern tip of the island with the bulk of its fuselage hanging over open water. An aft loading ramp extended down to the beach.

The flyer slowed to a crawl and slithered up the ramp into the belly of the ship, coming to an abrupt halt against a stack of barrels. The engines screamed in the enclosed space, then faded to silence. Deafened passengers roused themselves and looked around. Floor-to-ceiling stacks of crates and gun racks loomed on all sides, making it a wonder they had not struck anything on the way in.

"Well, here we are," Gippal said, hopping up onto the flyer's windshield to kick a knob on the wall. The ramp and cargo bay doors began to close with a hiss of hydraulics. Dingy amber lights flickered to life in the ceiling as the rectangle of daylight behind them narrowed and vanished.

auronlu: (Yuna + Lulu)

by DippyWerewolf on deviantART I can find it later. (Of course, I can look back on her dA as well).

Thank you so much!

...Rikku, Yuna and Lulu playing with each other's hair. And braids, because braiding hair (or having someone else braid one's hair) is fun and soothing.
auronlu: (behindyou)
...because it's Mintywolf's birthday!

and then I did another thing, because the first thing was coming out awful!

And on the second thing, I used onionskinning and still screwed up an arm, but at least this is kinda sorta what was in my head!

Lulu + Yuna: Sin's Return
by ~auronlu on deviantART

I really REALLY really wish I hadn't lost my art skills. I have an image in my head, but it won't come out. And arthritis means I can't do much at a time, which is one reason I got out of the habit. BUT I WANT TO DRAW THIS THING DAMMIT.

(I was initially trying to draw Yuna arriving in Besaid, getting her first glimpse of goth girl standing aloof from everyone else and watching her.)

i keep looking up twelve year old and seven year old girls on image search, trying to find art references, and being paranoid that someone's going to think I'm an awful person. :(

They're 13 and 8 in the picture above. Poor Yuna; it must've upset her more than anyone else in Spira when Sin came back.

I've mucked around with Lulu's Inappropriate Applications of the Dark Arts as a trope ever since I started writing smut. Ice was always the weapon of choice. So when [ profile] ff_yuri_drabble  put up "ice" as a prompt, I had to kick it up a notch. Total PWP.

GLEE! A certain shyly asked if I'd be bothered if she drew a fanart of "Disentanglement", one of my Yuna/Lulu drabbles.

Bothered? BOTHERED?!

Snow Yuna
Rating: G

Not quite as good as Auron, but still fairly good. The snow for today was crusty on top and powder underneath, which was a bit cranky but still not as bad as the first day.

Yes, that really is the color of Mt. Ogden at sunset.

Hey waitaminute. Am I dense, or is there a big gaping plot hole I never noticed before?

Kelk: ...Tell this court what possessed you to participate in such violence.
Yuna: Your Grace... The real traitor is Maester Seymour! He killed his father Jyscal with his own hands!
Kelk: What is this!
Seymour: (Nonchalant) Hmm? Hadn't you heard?
Yuna: Not only that... Maester Seymour is already dead!
Lulu: It is a summoner's sacred duty to send the souls of the departed to the Farplane! Yuna was only doing her job as a summoner!

I don't think Seymour was already dead when he and Yuna had their showdown in Macalania Temple. Saying "it's my duty to send him!" when you were responsible for his death is a little disingenuous.

Yuna had pressing reasons for doing what she did, but the following argument would fit the facts better:

Yuna: Your Grace... The real traitor is Maester Seymour! He killed his father Jyscal with his own hands!
Yuna: Not only that...but when I begged him to turn himself over to Yevon for judgment, he attacked me! In the heart of Macalania Temple, when I had just emerged from the Chamber of the Fayth!
Lulu: Yuna was only defending herself from being murdered like Lord Jyscal, and it was our sacred duty as guardians to protect her.

auronlu: (smile!)
I just stumbled across this delightfully ordinary portrait of gawky teenaged Lulu and young teenish Yuna having a quiet afternoon in Besaid.

Safe for work and preschoolers. :D

Also poking at a Lulu icon. I'm still not quite satisfied with it, but I've been trying to make/acquire a smiling-Lulu icon for years, and finally ran across a high-quality screencap of her one and only grin (which was, by happy coincidence, to Auron).

Lulu poem

Apr. 4th, 2007 03:00 am
auronlu: (Default)

Hm. Somebody on a random website asked if anyone would do a Lulu poem. A bit predictable, but this is the scribble that came out.

Title: Old Moon
Characters: Yuna, Lulu

They say the moon cradles
The dark moon in her arms
But for now, by Yevon
I'll hold her.

Her heart beats with fervor
Mine with bitter ice.

I know the taste
Of the sea is tears
But she, bright flower
Still walks on water.

Already the first tears kiss her cheeks.

But still, for a little while
Let her dance
Let her believe
Let her dream
Let the Aeons fly for her

And let me guard her, just a little longer
From beatitude
From betrayal.

Bah, a fragment of this has been flopping around in my writings folder for several months. I can't seem to get a tidy stopping point, but I think I'm just going to post it.

Gah, these are like drabbles -- I can churn 'em out in about 15 minutes.

Problem with the current entry: it presents in a rather bald fashion most of the backstory for Lady Ginnem that I've develped for Resurrection which, honest to gosh, I intend to present in a more dramatic way sooner or later. But by then you all will have forgotten what I wrote here anyway.

It's strangely liberating to be writing a crapass fic purely for fun, instead of laboring to hone every word.
