Day 06. A guilty pleasure fic

The La Beneamata series by myself & [ profile] asukajude (Football RPS, Matthäus/Klinsmann, Beckenbauer/Cruyff)

For so many reasons. So many. All those plot bunnies which may never see the light of day...

Day 07. A fic with a wonderful kiss

I almost never remember any kissing scene—as in, I know kissing must have been involved at some point, I just don’t remember any of its particulars. Having said this, although I’m trying my hardest to not re-nominate any of fics already mentioned in this meme from 4 years ago, I’ll have to go with….

the bridge or the pulley by [ profile] michi_thekiller (Kingdom Hearts/Final Fantasy VIII, Seifer/Squall, Leon/Seifer)

And one day, this boy would be big and tall and muscular, harsh in his beauty, and strong, certainly strong enough to press one against a wall in a deep green garden, to be tongue and teeth and not to listen so well when one said no because there was a yes folded inside of it.

Just one of the many parts of that glorious fic that has always stuck in my head. :P

Day 08. A fic you plan on reading (old or new)

Kissing Gourami by草加ミチル (Prince of Tennis, Atobe/Tezuka)

Gakuto and Ryou’s POV on Atobe and Tezuka. The last time I read this it wasn’t completed yet I think. Some parts of it, OMGOMGOMG.


Day 09. A fic that makes you happy

I don’t even remember the name or the author of this tiny gem of a fic but it ALWAYS cracks me (and whomever I’m describing it to) up….

It’s a present-day Arthur/Merlin fic. The idea is that Merlin, after all these years, has FINALLY found Arthur’s reincarnation (you know, once and future king and all). So Merlin’s all like, MY KING let us work together to bring England back to Glory (yes with a capital G)! And the young Arthur goes, YEAH TOTALLY I’M GONNA START BY CAPTAINING THE FOOTBALL TEAM TO BECOME WORLD CHAMPIONS BECAUSE THAT’S CLEARLY THE FIRST STEP!

Day 10. A fic that reminds you of someone

尘埃飞舞 by River_RS (MCU, Thor/Loki/Thor, Natasha/Clint)

Due to the Hong Kong AU setting I can never think about without thinking about [ profile] iris242x….. Also—yes, whatever else, bloody good fic. Not just for Thor and Loki, but for Natasha and Clint as well.

Day 27. A fic that spawned an inside joke

Pictures of You by Reiko+沙罗+茕蝶 (Naruto, Kakashi/Sasuke, in Chinese)

Yeah....I probably should face the music on this one, as Miya-chan (nickname: Little BT) has gained a life of his own.

Day 28. A fic with a pairing you never thought you'd read

Five Ways Sam Vimes Discovered What He Didn't Want to Know by kindkit (Discworld, Vetinari/Drumknott)

I always thought this ship was boring, but the author showed me it could be touching. My Discworld OTP is Vetinari/Vimes, but the Vimes in this one was very nicely done as well.

Day 29. A fic that turns you on

Tarnished Angel by Blackrose (FF8, Seifer/Squall)

Kink quotient is 10/10. (Although I have to say, I always end up giggling at the ending...)

Day 30. A fic with a great ending

Nothing is Written by Transmission Failure (Formula One RPS, Senna/Berger)

Oh that ending. THAT ENDING. For me, it took the meaning of poetic angst to a whole new level.

I touch the gravestone, the letters cut into it: Nada pode me separar do amor de Deus. I will not stand between him and his God any more. My veneration will not fade, nor die; but it will now grow more distant—the might of a planet eclipsed by a falling star. There is no way I could ever forget Ayrton.

But still I am here to say goodbye.

Day 25. A fic you wish you'd never read

Sale Source by Sya (FF8, Seifer/Squall AU) (in Japanese)

No comment. None.

Day 26. A fic with a great OC

The Mysteries series by JA Ingram and Charlene Vickers (Star Trek DS9, Garak/Bashir)

Whatever other issues I might have with this gigantic AU series, the main OC was unforgettable. I'd say more but that would spoil the surprise. :P

Day 06. A guilty pleasure fic

Broken Halo by Miss Dincht (FF8, Seifer/Squall)

Lovely Lucius. Tall, blonde, and always impeccably dressed. A peculiar "boy" for lack of a better term. He is very beautiful, very dangerous, very cruel, and very violent. I couldn't have been more proud, but my reasons for loving our eldest child are vastly different than Squall's.

Fallen angel AU. Mpreg. Kids OCs. I mean, yeah cliché is cliché. But I loved reading it. I still do.

Day 03. A long-standing favorite fic

the bridge or the pulley by [ profile] michi_thekiller (Kingdom Hearts II/FF8, Leon/Seifer)

This is the fic that LITERALLY made me go, "if I could write something like this, I'd be happy to never write another piece of fanfiction again." I can't even quote what I love most about it (aside from the obvious lyrical beauty), because it's...everything?

Title: Fissure
Characters: Seifer, Fuujin

Rating: PG

She was secretly relieved when Sven showed no desire to yield a gunblade. No lashing and swinging for their boy, who preferred studying medicine to causing carnage. She had no idea where did that come from, but she was grateful.

Seifer made no comment about the matter. The Hyperion was gathering dusts in these days, because its master only practiced with an unnamed substitute. It would have been awkward for Seifer to teach Sven, to say the very least.

It was all for the best, perhaps, for Seifer Almasy's son to be severed from the fading calling of his blood.

Pairing: Irvine/Selphie + Rinoa

Rating: G

....Ms. Heartilly is luminous as the film's understated star, bringing a curious vulnerability to the role that is a marked departure from her previous Hollywood resume...

"—Irvine!" she pouted, "You jerk! What about me!? I have equal billing with her in this one you know!"

The man looked up at her from the sofa chair, smirking like a cat.

"Ms. Tilmitt? Oh, I dunno. A fine performance, I suppose. But after her last film, I just had such high expectations for her...."

He couldn't really finish, because she leaned down, dragged the laptop away from his hands, and kissed him.

Title: Rendezvous at Cetra II
Pairing: Seifer/Squall + Quistis

Rating: G

The U.S.S. Lionheart hung stationary just above the dust cloud surrounding Cetra II, waiting.

"Captain, we're being hailed by another stealthed Starfleet vessel." After two hours, at 1503, Tilmitt's ever-cheery voice finally came to life.

"On screen."

The captain blinked when he saw the graceful but severe-looking blond woman's face.

"This is Commander Trepe, First Officer of the U.S.S Hyperion. Lionheart, reconfirm your position."

"Confirmed. Still at five-gamma-eight."

"Alternative positioning system now operating, three minutes to completion," Trepe smiled a little. "On a side note, Captain Almasy is perfectly well. He's in the med bay only for a routine decontamination procedure."

The young man in the captain's uniform almost frowned.

"That's not a concern of mine at the moment, Quistis."

"Of course not. My apologies. Trepe out."


A/N: As Star Trek has eaten my brain, my first reaction to the AU prompt was, of course, U.S.S. Lionheart! At first I wanted to have S&S serve on the same ship, but in the end decided it would be more interesting if they were separated for the time being.

Lionheart Hyperion
Captain S. Leonhart S. Almasy
First Officer Xu Q. Trepe
Science Officer E. Loire Q. Trepe
Chief Medical Officer E. Loire Raijin
Communications Officer S. Tilmitt R. Heartilly
Helmsman/Navigator I. Kinneas Z. Dincht
Chief Engineer Nida Fuujin

I'd pay to see Seifer trying his best to not yell "CHICKIE" at Zell during the more pressing moments. *snicker*

Title: Left Behind
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: PG-13

The Commander no longer uses his gunblade. Two plain weapon caskets adorn the wall behind his chair, one for Lionheart and one for Hyperion. Selphie swears that he's lost his marbles, that he talks to Lionheart when he thinks nobody can hear him. But then, Selphie says a lot of things.

And it's the same Selphie who, when Seifer said that he might as well die in a fire if he ever lost Lionheart, casually commented "do you really want to see him that much?"

Seifer looked at her and smiled, green eyes almost happy.

"I'll see him soon enough."

Title: Promises
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: PG-13

Being born too pretty is a sin.

Having Seifer as a boyfriend probably counts as a sin too, although the general jury is still out on that one. Right now Squall would definitely have to go with a yes, seeing as how Seifer is grinning like an idiot and treating him like a baby, just because he is sick to the high heavens.

"I am going to fucking kill you when I can walk again," he manages to croak out.

"Come get me then," Seifer replies blithely, kissing his forehead. "I will fuck you right back into this bed, princess."

The Sun in the Flower
by Renata Lord
([ profile] snowlight)


In which Seifer gets flowers. Lots of them. )


A/N: Okay so this turned out to be so much utter FAIL in terms of expressing my original intent. I really wanted to tie in the whole sappiness known as "other people see Seifer as the sun that brightens up Squall's life, but to Seifer the exact opposite is true." But eh, if it won't come, it won't come. So there.
snowlight: (busy)
In an attempt to not write the paper that is due this evening, I updated my English fanfic master list as well as complied a rundown of my English FFVIII drabbles.

I wrote more than I thought. ^^ )

Some of the drabbles (such as All that Glitters and Save the Queen) were hard to give a category to, because in my head there is a backstory for it but I haven't written down anything but the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.

In the end, though, no matter what kind of S/S I write, I will always think of them as Headmaster Leonhart and Commander Almasy: friends, rivals, sparring partners, comrades-in-arms...and yes, lifelong lovers.

Title: Company Regulation
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: G

If he was a lesser man, Squall might have been disturbed about how Seifer apparently has more female fans than he does. As it is, he is merely annoyed by the fact that the express mail carrier redirects packages addressed to Seifer to his office whenever Seifer is not around.

"I am not his keeper, nor his packages' keeper," the Headmaster of Balamb Garden once explained thus to the delivery man, his irritation controlled but obvious.

"No, sir. But company regulation requires us to leave the package with the spouse or other immediate family members if at all possible, sir."

This is from Seifer's POV. Squall POV to follow.

Title: All that Glitters
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: G

Another sunny Balamb morning. Another movie about the Second Sorceress War. Another blushing cadet asking him to sign a stupid poster.

Commander Almasy is definitely not in a good mood.

To be fair, the movie didn't make him into a caricature of evil, and even the "roguishly handsome" newcomer playing him wasn't half bad. Yet there is something fundamentally disquieting about the war being made into a movie. The things he had seen, the things he had done—certainly he never ran away from them, but he would have preferred to leave them on the dark side, where they belong.

Raijin's been pretty down lately, saying Fuu is going weird on him, not answer his calls and stuff.

If only the guy knew how Fuu is up to her neck planning a welcome home party for him. —That's right. My girl Fuu. Planning a party. For him.

The bastard is damned lucky. Any guy who can get Fuu is.

As I see him moping around, though, I keep having this urge to shake him up, smack him around a bit. So your girl isn't answering your calls. Tough shit. Cry me a river. Leonhart hates my guts, and I survived.

Squall上辈子一定欠了Seifer Almasy先生很多很多……
snowlight: (ff8 - squall)

Written for [ profile] ffviii_100 prompt No.25: photograph.

Title: Two Kings
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: G

It was widely known that Leonhart hated being photographed with Almasy. Which was just as well, because Almasy hated being photographed with Leonhart.

Still, it was odd that they rarely attended the same functions, despite being the respective No.1 and No.2 in Balamb. There was always some Very Good reason for it, but I suspected that ultimately Leonhart would just refuse to explain, while Almasy would go for the classic intimidation tactics.

For the longest time, I thought it was a pride thing—like how in chess, the two kings may never stand next to each other.

I was wrong.
