seventhe: Sev plays FFIII. (Oh. Okay.) (Refia: oh. okay.)
Heyyyooo, so let's talk about fic stuff. Today's post is a small-fandom extravaganza. We'll start with DOINK! 2013!

I got a really awesome gift this year:

Seeing The Bright (1875 words) by Estirose
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Princess Hilda, Gordon (Final Fantasy II), Leila (Final Fantasy II), Arc (Final Fantasy III)

At camp, Hilda gets ready to retake Fynn. But there's a little time before that to rest, talk to her friends, and decide what to make of Leila.

Not only is this a crossover fic (!!!!!!!) that not only includes some of my favorite FFII characters but managed to work in Arc (and Arc/Alus!!!) – points for that alone, ladies and gentlemen; ways to make your Sev happy: surprise crossover references – but it's a beautiful look at Hilda's mindset in the game before they retake Fynn, the way she thinks of her people (not just the people of Fynn she needs to care for, but the people around her she chooses to trust) and her situation. It's gorgeous.

I also received an awesome piece of Chocobo Down:

Don't Talk to Mountains (They Talk Back) (2755 words) by flonnebonne
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Edge Geraldine/Rydia
Characters: Edge Geraldine, Kain Highwind, Rydia, Cecil Harvey, Rosa Joanna Farrell, Ceodore Harvey
Additional Tags: how can anyone spend seventeen years on a mountain, meta disguised as fic, ffiv: the after years makes no sense, edge is silly

Edge tries to talk Kain off the mountain and gets an earful of nonsense. After which the story stops even trying to make sense.

I started giggling at the summary, then the first paragraph made me lose it, and I was hooting by the end. This is legitimately one of the funniest fics I've ever read.

I wrote two things for DOINK! this year. My gift was:

Sight (3461 words) by seventhe
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Final Fantasy II
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Minwu, Hilda (Final Fantasy II)
Additional Tags: Hilda/Minwu (implied), gratuitous use of imagery, Backstory

Minwu sees things; when he looks at one thing, he sees another, and he has his whole life. But when he looks at Fynn Castle, he sees only its stones; when he looks at Princess Hilda, he doesn't know what he sees.

The story of how Minwu came to serve Hilda, and how they came to trust one another.

I ended up really enjoying this prompt, and really enjoyed writing this fic. There's a lot to be said about the bond between Hilda and Minwu, and I really only approached Minwu's side here, but after [community profile] moogle_university I apparently had a lot to say, up to and including a lot of crossover meta fun to throw in there and play with. It is full of references to other FFs! It is a fun game: gotta catch 'em all! I am awful. However, I think I now ship Hilda/Minwu. I'm not sure I'm sorry.

I also wrote a piece of Chocobo Down:

a dancing game (1840 words) by seventhe
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Final Fantasy XII
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Vaan (Ivalice Alliance), Penelo
Additional Tags: Sky Pirates, Treasure Hunting, effective (if quirky) friendships

Penelo and Vaan find yet another trap in search of treasure. Lucky for them, they still dance a mean game.

…which reminded me how much I enjoyed FFXII's battle system, and I am looking forward to getting there in our replay.

And finally, unrelated to DOINK! at all, I also finished and posted another giant thing, for which I will somehow manage to blame [personal profile] lassarina (for moogle_university), [personal profile] auronlu (for encouraging me), my friend Phil (for beating FFIII while visiting), and myself (for being a horrible, incorrigible person who likes terrible ships):

Architecture (12208 words) by seventhe
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Final Fantasy III
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Alus/Arc
Characters: Arc (Final Fantasy III), Alus Restor
Additional Tags: Period-Typical Underage, Aged-Up Character(s), aged up from canon, precocious boy-kings, shy trusted advisors, clumsy boy makeouts, Kissing
Series: Part 2 of precocious boy-kings and their shy trusted advisors

(+5 years from the game; sequel to Calligraphy.) Arc finds new direction in Saronia, new understanding of himself, and new everything with Alus. (In which Arc builds a bridge, Alus hires an advisor, and Luneth, Refia, and Ingus write letters.)

…because I cannot stop writing Arc/Alus and I never will and I am not sorry, so here are 12000 words of it, that and FFIII worldbuilding and continued Refia/airships and Luneth/pranks and Ingus/Sara (who actually have the best sense of humor of all of them) and Arc and Alus and trust and friendship and horrible budget committee meetings and clandestine meetings in the library (except not) and falling asleep on couches, and I will never stop having things to say about shy, awkward, kids; about clever, brilliant precocious young boys who are strong in ways that aren't traditional; and the ways they can find confidence and belonging and also make out a lot. It is like my thing for Larsa only much much worse. /DEFRIENDED

It's a direct sequel to Calligraphy, but it seemed to need to stand on its own; I'm so happy with a lot of what I wrote this month, but I'm so so very happy about this one.

I ALSO have finally found the actual Rosa fic that I have been meaning to finish and edit and post - the third part of my polyamorous trifecta, Momentum / Content With This Winter / [All The Ghosts] - and so even though I haven't really had time yet to make educated comments on [personal profile] sathari's Rosa entry I am jazzed beyond belief that I didn't lose the fic entirely like I thought.

seventhe: (Ohayo: CREEPERSHARK)
Yeah, why not. I did one of these a long time ago and really enjoyed it. (Oh, look! Here it is. 2008, oh my frigging god.) And since I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year I figured it would be a fun thing to do. In the interest of, you know, writing something. Anything. All the things.

Here's how we play!
   --> You leave a comment with a fandom, a character or pairing, and five words or short prompts.
   --> I will write sentences for your prompts.
   --> Everyone wins!
   --> I will be doing this for the next couple days only, so if you miss out, sorry. Although if you leave awesome prompts I'll try to get to them anyway.

All the usual fandoms and then some:
  • Final Fantasy: IV, IV: TAY, V, VI, VII/AC/etc, VIII, IX, X/X2, XII, Dissidia sure why not

  • Games: Chrono Trigger, uh do I play anything else

  • Shows: Criminal Minds; Firefly; Avatar: The Last Airbender; Gundam Wing SURE WHY NOT

  • Books: the Dresden Files; the Vorkosigan Saga; the Kushiel books; the Mercy Thompson books; the Hunger Games; uh


  • Any other stuff you might know I like
seventhe: Rydia (Rydia)
So I've been working on something in the background – although it has stalled significantly since this class took over my life, writing, I miss you – but part of that stalling has been idea-wise, and as such I think it's time to open up the floor, since I haven't had a good old school fandom discussion here in a while. I want to talk about Final Fantasy IV, and specifically Rosa.

This will be more relevant if you've read Momentum (Edge, Kain, Rydia) (Edge/Rydia, Edge/Kain, Kain/Rydia, Edge/Kain/Rydia yes it is one of those) (R; 32,800 words) and Content With This Winter (Cecil, Rosa, Kain) (Cecil/Rosa, Cecil/Kain) (NC-17; 5,373 words), but it isn't necessarily necessary to do so. The stories are a very loose series and the third piece (Rosa-centric) will fill it in as a very loose trilogy. This universe could be summed up as "Sex heals everything" or "Kain bones everybody" or "Why Sev doesn't do love triangles (Because She Likes Poly/Open Relationships Okay And Doesn't Believe In Jealousy)" or, again, "Kain does FFIV." This is a joke. It's actually a serious series.

Cut the ramble for potential spoilering of an ancient game! :3  )

seventhe: Rydia (Rydia)
I took this from [personal profile] owlmoose because it looks interesting:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately.
seventhe: (Default)
Okay! This couldn't have come at a better time, because, well, today has been cold and grey and grumpy and work sucked and homework sucks and lots of other people are in the suck, and guess what: IT IS TIME FOR SOME FANGIRLING.

[personal profile] lassarina asked for Favourite FF Characters and Ships and Why.

This... is the kind of answer I could spend thousands of words on. I have a lot of favorites, from a lot of games, and a lot to say about them! So I'm going to make this fun and challenging and way more entertaining to read for all of you: I'm only going to give myself one sentence about my favorites, both characters and pairings (although I am still allowed to abuse punctuation).

I've played I-III, but (a) I've never beaten them (I am so not the completionist) and (b) the characters didn't stick in my head, so: I'm going to start with FFIV and I will move through and point at my favorites and it doesn't mean I don't love the others, but this really has to be about favorites, so, yeah.

Final Fantasy: Characters and Pairings I Really Like )

seventhe: (FFEX: Doink!)
[personal profile] justira asked:
Why are you in fandom! How did you get here! Did you learn anything about yourself from/through being in fandom? For example, did you discover any kinks? =D (And, if you feel comfortable sharing, what are they!)

And I've got a bit to say about this!

Why am I in fandom?
I like to write, and being in fandom helps keep me doing so; there's an audience in fandom I think it's easier to reach out to than with original work. I love the source material, and fandom's a way to express that: reading, browsing art, commenting, sharing; all of these are ways to extend and explore a source material I'm fond of. I like the community; I've met some amazing people through fandom (more on this in a bit) and I enjoy the shared/collaborative feel of it, even if it's just commenting on a friend's drabble with a smiley-face.

I think in a way it's about value. I've watched people change fandoms or drift in and out of fandom because it isn't returning what they value (whether that's attention, comments/reviews, crit/feedback, cult of worshipers etc - value's different for all), and obviously I encourage everyone to shift around until they find a place in a fandom that's rewarding for them. Fandom's supposed to be fun, not frustrating!

Anyway: for me, the value returned is in communications: friends emailing me rambling snippets of fic or ideas for the one where GFs steal Seifer's memory or even just handfuls of porn, people I don't know commenting on fic that's two years old and getting into conversations about this or that pairing, friendships that move on beyond fandom, ideas that grow into [community profile] ff_exchange or the Kiss Battle or a series of prompts on [community profile] fuckyeahfinalfantasy -- interactions that go beyond "hay I liked your fic" are what I mean.

It's the connections, the kind of stuff I wouldn't do on my own -- like... I could write and maybe get comments and stuff, but -- I know now that I can write something and people will read it, and if they don't I can send them a note and they'll read it when they have time; it's the feedback, the interaction, and that's what I like.

How did I come to fandom?
Sadface: I have been writing fanfiction since before I knew what it was. Remember Sev is older than most of you, and we didn't have a ton of internet access/time growing up, and so when I spent my time writing an absolutely massive (note: it spanned four 3 1/2 inch disks) FFIV / FFVI crossover, I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS FANFIC; I was just like "la de da I am writing this stupid story and I will never tell anyone." It wasn't until college - which for me was after 2000 - that I really recognized fanfiction and figured out what the heck it was. That means I've been writing for over 10 years... wow, that's ridiculous.

Once I found -- through FF and Harry Potter almost simultaneously -- I started writing more, and I started meeting people. I ended up heading to Livejournal through - well, a collection of people; [personal profile] novel_machinist/[ profile] drakonlily and [personal profile] crankyoldman/[ profile] venefica_aura, mostly. They! Were also the first fandom people I ever met, in 2005, when we went to Otakon for the first time. (2005 or 2006? Am I that old...?)

Once I found Livejournal I was pretty much lost.

Things I learned from fandom!

Well, to start it off I have to say that fandom has impacted my life. It isn't subtle. Many people I've met from here have become friends, and some of them not just friends but CLOSE, heart-to-heart, soulmate friends. (And some of them, MAKEOUT FRIENDS, which in my opinion are totally the best kind!) I'm talking real-life friends and real-life impact. I won't get sappy, but I'm going to say: I love you all.

And, GOSH, as for kinks?


And my time's almost up... post! Obviously there's a lot more to say, but one thing I learned about myself is tl;dr. Yes.

Rules and Sign-Ups!

!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO ELSE IS EXCITED.

FYI, I will be writing the sequel to Dissolution (titled Reinvention). If anybody wants to be my artist this is the chance to draw Edgar/Sabin twincest I KNOW you've been waiting for. ;)

Recap of the weekend in a bit. Had to get this out first ♥
seventhe: (Squall: dammit)

The Last Order, Chapter 7.

You know you want to.
Because the Seifer-Xu banter and snark is absolutely priceless.

I totally just realized that Jana actually called this chapter "In Which Martine Is An Asshole", which honestly made me laugh out loud and got me a really nasty look from my cat.

The Last Order, Chapter 3!

I am really enjoying this collab! The way we write it - in short bits, over email - makes it almost a role-play, only in language and with all the characters at our disposal. The style's very different, too, and I'm enjoying the challenge of staying in the scene and shooting something back rather than writing 983264 words of exposition like I normally do.

I need to update this on [ profile] brokenprism before I forget and get like 2837 chapters behind like I am on HNtDB >.>
seventhe: (Rinoa: blur)

Yes, a Rinoa-centric piece.

Most of you read the original on [ profile] brokenprism. The final one hasn't really changed much, so don't get too excited. The LJ link also now represents the "final" version.

This marks my first solo update to in, like, a year. XD

Much thanks to my [ profile] lassarina for the beta and to everyone who gave me comments on it -- it definitely helped.
seventhe: (Cecil: OMG DARK SWORD)
New FFIV fic in the works, ladies and gentlemen!

Authors: [ profile] first_seventhe and [ profile] rosencrantz (Sev and Enkida)
Fandom: FFIV
Characters: Kain, Rydia, Edge, Cast
Rating: M / R
Spoilers: Whole damn game.

Summary: Heroes aren't always automatically granted a happily ever after... sometimes, winning is only the start of the battle. Kain, Rydia, Edge - and the aftermath of victory.

Part I: Penance (01)

The fic is a gift for [ profile] katmillia, or at least it started out that way. It's now the hugest, most tl;dr gift ever.

I'll be updating it in [ profile] brokenprism, and I mean it this time ;), so I probably won't post about it here every time because I don't want to spam people. Consider this your introductory post! This is basically just blatant self-promoting spam. SPAM SPAM SPAM. I know some of you on my F-List are FFIV people, so please take a read and let me know what you think. <3 THERE WILL BE PORN IN THIS STORY, LATER
seventhe: (Irvine: ride a cowboy)
I give you The Last Order, an FF8 story in which basically everything goes to hell and in the Squall vs Life battle, Life pwns Squall.

OK, it's not quite that depressing, it's full of snark and angst and lots of coffee. But it IS eventually going to deal with something I find fascinating: mistakes. Lots of them. The Orphanage Gang screwing up, for once, and not being able to be super undefeatable heroes. The fact that they're human. That Squall may not really be cut out to be a leader. That no one is perfect. Also, that basically everyone is a caffeine addict. IT ALSO HAS IRVINE.

It's an interesting and awesome pretense, and I hope [ profile] irish_ais and I can do it justice.


collabs are totally eating my brains! jana and enkida, i totally blame you both
seventhe: (Auron: I'd hit that)

1. Comment to this post with the name of a character that I have written in fic.

2. I will comment telling you the following:
a. What initally prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits
c. One of his/her worst traits
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character
e. The story/chapter/paragraph/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character
f. My plans (if any) to write the character in the near future.

seventhe: (Quistis: Bad Day)
How Not to Date Blondes, Chapter 11!

More horrible cooking jokes, an introspective Quistis, and a setup for danger in the next chapter. ;)
seventhe: (Basch: not without my potholder!)
How Not to Date Blondes, Chapter 10! In which Enkida and I* out-do ourselves with horrible innuendo, cooking jokes, and approximately 10,000 words. I am really not joking.

*Mostly Enkida, I will admit.

Eventually this will make it back into [ profile] brokenprism and then you will all be spammed by it AGAIN!

- - -

Coming up: back to the Meme of Five, with a new attempt to write [ profile] eerian_sadow's prompt. I AM NOT STUCK. I SWEAR.
