Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 081: How?

Title: The Frog Prince
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: CloudxAerith
Prompt: 081: How?
Word Count: 850
Rating: G
Summary: He often had to remind himself that she'd lived her life trapped within Midgar
Author's Notes: I find it funny that I am usually more of a CloudxTifa fan, but while all of those stories are usually bittersweet bordering on angst, this is one actually quite cheerful bordering on fluff :D

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 028: Children/ CloudxTifa; 065: Hope

Title: Sunny Road
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: CloudxTifa
Prompt: 028: Children/065: Hope
Word Count: 1331
Rating: PG
Summary: He wanted more than anything for her to finally cry.
Author's Notes: Inspired by Pied Flycatcher's story, Fragility, on ff.net...this is actually a topic I thought of quite awhile ago, but after reading her story I finally figured out how to tell this one :) Not entirely happy, but how much of what I write is?

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 054: Air

Title: Breaking the Silence
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Cloud, Tseng
Prompt: 054: Air
Word Count: 2854
Rating: PG-13
Summary: They would not try to comfort each other, and had perhaps found the one other person who could understand why they carried the guilt they did.
Author's Notes: I think I took some liberties here. Minor spoilers for pretty much the whole compilation...I stayed away from the central plots of Before Crisis and Crisis Core, but drew on some of the character histories, particularly where Zack and Aerith's relationship is concerned. I made up a name for Elena's sister since she never gets one, and if anyone can tell me how old Tseng actually is, I'll buy you cookies :) Most of this is just me filling in gaps...if anyone spots anything that contradicts something known to be canon, please let me know :) Pairings referenced in some way: CxT, CxA, TxA, TxE, Tx(Gun Female), ZxA

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 022: Enemies

Title: The Unforgiven
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Cloud, Tseng
Prompt: 022: Enemies
Word Count: 1068
Rating: PG
Summary: He wondered that the other man never seemed the type to cry, while trying to ignore the fact that he wasn't either...
Author's Notes: Two quick one-shots, one for Tseng, one for Cloud...I drew a lot of references from Last Order for Tseng's, but the story is nothing we don't already know...Brief reference to Before Crisis, which I have never played so I probably screwed the canon up quite a bit... :-\ A bit of a prologue to the dialogue from the next story XD And apologies for the Meredith Grey-esque narrative for Cloud's!

The UnforgivenCollapse )

New prompt community...

I can't believe I'm taking on another one of these, but since I honestly have nothing better to do with my time these days, and I need a good reason to start writing CloudxTifa again, I'm taking them on at otp_100 :)

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 024: Family

Title: Scratch
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: CloudxTifa
Prompt: 024: Family
Word Count: 782
Rating: PG
Summary: Her eyes are crying for a friendship she will never regain.
Author's Notes: Without spoiling the whole story, this is just a take on thefamily! angst I haven't really seen anywhere, possibly because nobody wants to ever say 'better [that person] than you,' but sometimes, no matter how guilty you feel for thinking that, it's true.

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 003: Ends

Title: The Mask and Mirror Full Circle
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tseng (one-sided TsengxAerith)
Prompt: 003: Ends
Word Count: 1147
Rating: Hard PG-13 (mentions of torture, dark themes)
Summary: He grasped the wisps as a man trying to grab death itself and pull it back.
Author's Notes: [Teeny tiny spoilers for Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus] This is actually a song-fic, in a sense. It's based on the song "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" by Colin Hay...but while the song is a beautiful, sad, love song...this...is a bit more twisted. When listening to the song it actually inspired me to write a Tifa/Aerith fic that fit more with the theme of the song, but when I sat down to write it Tseng came to mind instead, and he took it to a rather dark place. I would love feedback, since I'm still not wholly satisfied with the ending...any suggestions would be great :)

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 084: He

Title: Nowhere Warm
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Cloud, Aerith
Prompt: 084: He
Word Count: 746
Rating: PG
Summary: Had she known? [In-game, City of the Ancients, Cloud's POV]
Author's Notes: Spoilers for the City of the Ancients, if anyone still needs a spoiler warning for this fandom :) This is a companion piece to Like A Star, which is the same scene from the game, only from Tifa's viewpoint...I never intended to write another one, but my screensaver is comprised of various FF images, and the shot of her and Cloud in the water just struck me a few nights ago, so...here it is. Also, Crisis Core Easter Egg...though not necessary for understanding this, and no spoilers... <3

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 014: Green, 085: She, 065: Passing

I cannot honestly remember who or when or even if this happened, but I feel like at one point someone suggested to me that I write VincentxAerith...so, here are a few little drabbles for that pairing...more angst than anything else, and not quite romance, but...it's something?

Title: Back Where I Was
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Vincent, Aerith
Prompt: 014: Green
Word Count: 191
Rating: G
Summary: Vincent's awakening

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 025: Strangers

Title: Crash Into Me
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Aerith, Cloud
Prompt: 025: Strangers
Word Count: 740
Rating: G
Summary: There was a familiarity about him...
Author's Notes: Every once in awhile one of the prompt words immediately brings to mind an entire scene or situation all at once...this was one of them. I've looked this table over countless times, but this time as soon as I read the word 'Strangers,' the scene where Cloud and Aerith officially meet popped into my head, and I knew it had to be written from her point of view.

Crash Into MeCollapse )

Final Fantasy VII; Avalanche; 045: Moon

Title: Tears of the Moon
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Aerith, Cloud, Tifa
Prompt: 045: Moon
Word Count: 869
Rating: G
Summary: A moonlit walk in Nibelheim, and a vow that could change the future
Author's Notes: Short and relatively sweet. Still Cloti-ish, even though it's mainly an Aerith fic :) Bonus points to anyone who knows where I pulled the title of this one from ;) (Not that it should be that hard to figure out...<3)

Yuna's growth and the end of FFX-2

This is a response to a post irisangel made in new_shinra87, re: whether or not Tidus' return at the end of X-2 made Yuna's journey less significant...I ended up writing a big 'ol essay instead of just a comment, so I'm posting it here to save space on her comments page :)

really long analysis on Yuna's journeyCollapse )

Also...if anyone read through all that...please double check me on a lot of my facts, and especially on my assumptions. Most any assumption I make is based upon whatever is canon combined with my education in religion, myth, and psychology...but it is still my interpretation. If any conclusion I've drawn can be refuted by something in the storyline I may have missed, or by SE, please tell me...theories though they may be, I still want to be consistent :)

Kingdom Hearts; Leon/Aerith; Theme Set Epsilon

LeonxAerith claim at 1sentence complete :)

Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Pairing: Squall "Leon" Leonhart x Aerith Gainsborough
Theme: Epsilon
Rating: G-PG
Notes: Minor spoilers for both KH games in regards to these two characters (though not for Sora's story)...this set is done under the premise that the FF characters still remember their worlds from their original games; thus, though being familiar with FFVII and FFVIII is not necessary, these will probably make far more sense if you are at least familiar with the previous non-KH love interests of both characters :) And I am SO sorry I held onto this claim for as long as I did...if you have been waiting on me I really am truly sorry :-(

They were both waiting on ghosts, watching the stars for lights that had long since gone out. Collapse )

KH fic

Written for tafkae, in the valentinehearts challenge :)

Title: Memorizing Hope
Characters: Axel, Roxas, a little Sora
Word Count: 1416
Rating: G
Summary: Axel's last thoughts and memories
Notes:As stated above, written for a fic challenge community...I've never written either of these characters before, and written very little KH fic...hopefully I stayed pretty in character with Axel :) Also, to tafkae, I hope this is okay? I'm no good at writing fight scenes, but I tried to throw the Dusks in so there was at least *some* action :)

Final Fantasy VII: Avalanche; 001: Beginnings

Title: Light Pink Dress
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tifa, Cloud, Aerith
Prompt: 001: Beginnings
Word Count: 1225
Rating: PG
Summary: Set just before the events of Advent Children; Tifa and Cloud are plagued by nightmares
Author's Notes: Not as campy as the summary makes it sound--I wrote this eons ago but forgot to actually post it :) A little surreal, and while not quite spoiler-y, having seen Advent Children will make this make more sense :)

New fandom fic :)

I used to be a huge Metal Gear Solid fan, but due to a number of things had kind of fallen out of it, however, my new roommate is big into the fandom, which has renewed my previous interest. And so, in keeping with a new fandom, I of course have looked for decent fics on it, and I'm having a really hard time finding any in the style that I like. Pairings in the MGS fandom are very...skewed. Possibly, there are more crack!pairings than in Final Fantasy, and I think Snake and Otacon may beat out the entire Harry Potter fandom for the Most Available Yaoi Fic award.

However, there is hardly *any* Snake/Meryl fic I can find, that does not involve either them being bright & shiny as though nothing happened, her getting pregnant (the sons of Big Boss are *sterile,* people...), or Snake leaving her for Otacon. And so, in the instance I cannot find fics I want to read, the only clear solution is to write some of my own.

Just two short Snake/Meryl pieces for now. As with most of the fic I write, my goal is just to fill in the gaps they canon story left. This is an incredibly hard pairing to write, to me...I was very surprised that both fics ended up being from Snake's point of view, as I expected to identify more with Meryl than with anyone, but I just can't get inside her head...some characters I can't do that for...I'm a perfect mix of Tifa and Aerith, but I just cannot write Aerith fic to save my life...anyone who's read The Waiting Line is more than aware of that, though :)

But anyhow, very tricky to write, as Snake is not exactly the warmest, most emotional of people. MGS2 is proof that he is not the cold, war-robot of the original MG games, but he still isn't quite rushing out to buy black eyeliner and Death Cab for Cutie CDs, and Meryl is very strong, very guarded, and not the Desperate Housewife a lot of fics I've found try and turn her into. And anyone who's read anything I've written before knows I tend to focus on the emotional aspects of characters and situations. So trying to write two people who tend not to be very emotional in such moments, and still make it come across as natural...not easy. But, I think I succeeded--especially with the second of these two.

And now that I've written the *longest* fic intro ever, a couple of relatively short one-shots :)

Title: Fire Without Lies
Fandom: Metal Gear Solid
Characters: Snake/Meryl
Word Count: 1256
Rating: PG
Summary: Snake and Meryl meet up immediately following the events of Big Shell

(also, am finally starting to upload things on my fanfiction.net account, so in a moment of shameless self-promotion...check me out! Nothing there that isn't also here, but if you know anyone without an LJ account who reads fanfic...reviews are shiny! :)

Final Fantasy VII: Avalanche; 004: Insides, 005: Outsides

Title: On Broadway
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tifa
Prompt: 004; Insides
Word Count: 130
Rating: G
Summary: Tifa considers career options
Author's Notes: It has been *ages* since I have had the mental clarify to write anything, but I finally decided to just do it, clarify or not...so I did. and here it is.

Title: Silent Movies
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Aerith
Prompt: 005; Outsides
Word Count: 126
Rating: G
Summary: Why is Aerith so outspoken?
Author's Notes: After writing Tifa's, this just popped into my head as well, since they are two very different ways of dealing with the same thing.

home for the holidays

Title: Last Christmas
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tifa, Barret, Jessie, Biggs, Wedge, Marlene
Prompt: 092: Christmas
Word Count: 405
Rating: G
Summary: Avalanche celebrates Christmas Eve
Author's Notes: All three of these pieces are related (though can stand on their own); I bent the FFVII timeline about two-three weeks later than what it actually is because I really wanted to write Avalanche before Cloud joined, and the Christmas prompt seemed to me an appropriate method of achieving this. Then I did some research and discovered the timing isn't *too* far off so just went with it :)

OvertureCollapse )

Title: After-Christmas Special
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tifa, kind of Cloud
Prompt: 013: Yellow
Word Count: 1239
Rating: PG
Summary: How Tifa found herself at the Sector 7 train station that fateful day...
Author's Notes: This took a completely different direction that I had originally planned, but I am so happy with how it turned out. And I love the little cameo a certain someone makes, which completely took me by surprise. As with the first, the actual timeline has been slightly altered.

Entr'ActeCollapse )

Title: Interrupted By Fireworks
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Tifa, Cloud
Prompt: 095: New Year
Word Count: 521
Rating: PG
Summary: Tifa ruminating the night before the events of the game begin
Author's Notes: I have discovered that writing Cloud in that brief period of time between the infamous escape and Sephiroth's return is extremely difficult, but after many re-writes, here it is :) And I'm happy I got to use this title since that track is one of my favorites from the OST ;-) And again, with the timeline disclaimer :)

Final Fantasy VII: Avalanche; 044: Circle

Title: The Waiting Line
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Characters: Cloud, Aerith, Tseng, Elena, Cid, Yuffie, Vincent, Tifa
Prompt: 044: Circle
Word Count: 623 average per scene, 8 scenes total)
Rating: R, for sex, language, and a hint of violence
Summary: Eight characters in eight short scenes depicting a daisy chain of changing relationships.
Author's Notes: This was largely inspired by the play The Blue Room by David Hare, and was *extremely* challenging to write, as I crossed several of my normal paradigms with it, not the least of which exploring pairings I wouldn't normally think of.My goal was to create situations in which the pairings were believable, and the characters were still for the most part, likeable. Order is chronological to the FFVII timeline but the scenes pretty much stand alone.

Do you believe...Collapse )
