megpie71: AC Cloud Strife looking toward camera in Sleeping Forest (WTF)
Tuesday, February 17th, 2015 08:22 am
Yup, I got writing last night. Just a short one.

Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Rating: Teen and up (humorous allusion to minor drug use, over-caffeination)
Title: Coffee
Summary: Yuffie already knew she was in trouble good and deep when Leon turned to her, and very calmly, very quietly asked her, "Yuffie, did you leave the lid off the coffee pot?"

Scorn of the Women - Captain America: The First Avenger.

"All I recall is the scorn of the women,
And a white feather that I received in mail"


In time for ANZAC day, a fic inspired by one of the songs on my ANZAC playlist, "Scorn of the Women", by Weddings Parties Anything.

So I got carried away, and decided put some work up on AO3.

First up, http://archiveofourown.org/works/1336939 - "Little Battles" (Kingdom Hearts universe, Cloud/Leon, rated Mature for language).

Cloud and Leon have a discussion regarding invoicing and stevedoring.

Next up: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1336969 - "Once In A Lifetime" (Final Fantasy VIII, part 4 of the "Singing the Travels" series).

In which Squall reflects on matters past and present, and on his habit of drifting in the current.

And finally: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1336999 - "Sorceress' Theme" (Final Fantasy VIII).

A reflection on one of the unexplored ramifications of the closed time loop of the FFVIII plotline.

Yeah, I'm still not dead, and I'm still writing (albeit slowly).

The next part of the "Singing The Travels" series is up: I Fought The Law (And The Law Won).

"Singing The Travels" starts with Hooked On A Feeling and continues with What A Good Boy. It's set in the world of Final Fantasy VIII, after the events of the main game.

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 Hearts

Why: 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 VIII

What 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.

This is the stuff I've posted since the last update. It's all FF7 for now, and most of it is reposts of old stuff from the archives (back-dated, which is why the majority of it probably hasn't shown up as new).

White Mutiny

A look at the way the Turks might have handled dealing with Hojo over the years. After all, taking over ten years to run a retrieval mission is... somewhat unusual, especially when you've known where the subject of said mission is hiding out for all of those ten years.

Purity: A Smutfic in Four Acts

A comedy of errors, wherein Sephiroth learns that going cow-eyed with lust over an attractive cadet doesn't have to be the end of things.

Biological Warfare

Part 9 of the Nesaverse stories. The one where Zack learns why Shinra doesn't do housekeeping for SOLDIERs.

Plus, chapters 11 - 15 of Murphy's Laws of Combat

I start back at uni on Tuesday, so expect the posting to slow down a bit.

Okay, so these last few days, I've been busy posting up bits and pieces which have been sitting around my hard drive for ages up to AO3. This is because over the last few weeks, I've been doing a lot of fanfic reading (I'm on inter-semester break; that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it) and I've finally got fed up with not having posted anything there since about April. For the last four days, I've stuck with posting up one item from the pile of unposted completed fic on my hard drive. Here's the list:

Blakes 7 fandom: Roja Blake series

This was a writing exercise that I started late in my time in the B7 fandom; the aim was to see what changed with having a female protagonist rather than a male one. I got the first two episodes written before I got distracted by other fandoms and other ideas. Here they are for everyone's viewing pleasure:

The Way Back

Spacefall

Final Fantasy 8 fandom: Singing the Travels series

This is hopefully going to turn into a series which basically consists of various stories in a Seifer/Squall slash plot based around various songs which I think suit the characters. It's an offshoot of my creating a playlist for this game and the characters from it. First episode is the only one complete to date, and I'm busy trying to get the second kicked into shape.

Hooked on a Feeling

Kingdom Hearts Fandom - Rainy Day in Radiant Garden

This one was actually meant to come out a lot more slashy than it did, and it comes out of a long-standing plotbunny I have sitting around waiting to be dealt with. Basically, the original idea was that if Leon and Cloud got into a relationship, they'd probably have various mock-arguments they pulled out when they were too tired to spar, but not tired enough to sleep. Where did it go instead? Well, read the story and find out.

What can I say - it's something to do in the quiet moments.
