I got carried away last Wednesday and posted up a couple of new bits and pieces at AO3. So here's links and info about them for anyone who's curious.
Fandom: Kingdom HeartsWhy
: I was fifteen
. Riku looks back, and tries to explain his reasons.
This one has been sitting about on my IJ for a couple of years now, having never really been noticed when I first posted it, and not having received much feedback at all. It's another one of those "character introspection" pieces I write occasionally, in this case trying to explain from the perspective of the antihero of the Kingdom Hearts game series what his motivations were for some events very early on in the game. I've spent too long on the culture studies side of things to ever believe actions happen entirely free from context, so I started thinking about what the context might be for the characters in this case.
Fandom: Final Fantasy VIIIWhat A Good Boy
: Part two of the "Singing the Travels" series which started with "Hooked on a Feeling"
. I suppose we all have our moments where we look back at some kind of past innocence and long to head back there
. Squall reflects on events and history, and finding the perfect tune to sum things up.
I am still working on the series - part three is in progress even now. It's just the progress is rather glacial (and in this day and age, yes, this does mean it comes with the threat of the driving interest melting away long before the expected output!). However, Part Two has been written for a while now, and had been edited and fiddled with to the point where I was now down to minor word and punctuation tweaks, which meant it was ready for public consumption.
