Title: Inapproriate
Fandom: FFXII
Rating: Teen-ish
Wordcount: 7902
Characters: Ashe/Balthier, Ashe/Al-Cid, Penelo, Ondore
Spoilers: Yes but nothing really blatant.
Notes: A few months ago, I was complaining about not having any fic ideas, and [personal profile] renay pounced on me with a suggestion of Ashe/Balthier and fake dating. This is the result. Thanks to Nay for the bunny and to [personal profile] justira for a super-helpful beta read. Also thanks to Square Enix for releasing The Zodiac Age, thereby giving me the opportunity to put the characters' voices back in my head.

Summary: Beset by advisors who are pressuring her to marry, Queen Ashe reacts by bringing sky pirate Balthier as her escort to an important state event. Just having a bit of fun at her council's expense... right?

One of the roadblocks I've found in working on this story is that it's just been too long since I played FFXII. And since we recently got rid of our only television that will effectively run a PS2, I don't see the opportunity to pick it up again on the horizon at all. (Dear Square Enix: I understand that this remaster rumor is essentially just a rumor, but can't you at least port the darn thing to modern consoles or iOS? Pretty please?) Probably I need to apply myself to some Let's Plays, but I did find this collection of all the cutscenes, and I watched it over the space of a couple of days last week.



By all, I mean all, not just the FMVs -- it even includes snippets of most major boss battles, at least one shot of each Quickening, and the introductory shots for most of the world areas. The video is over six and a half hours long, and it was worth every minute to remind myself of details of story, landscape, and characterization. The characters' voices live in my head again, more so than they have in years. It's no substitute for living with the characters and Ivalice through a hundred hours of gameplay, but it was decidedly better than nothing.

Making writing progress, too, if slowly. What's mainly got me blocked at this point is giant plot details that I don't know yet. But I'm hoping that sitting down and writing up the character work, the character moments, will give me plot. It's worked before, anyway.

Garrus flipped a credit chit at the bartender. "Another," he said.

The asari shot him a hard glare. "Haven't you had enough already?" In answer, Garrus glared back, and the asari picked up the chit with a heavy sigh. "Fine." She tapped the chit to the reader, then frowned. "Huh."

"What?" Garrus drained the dregs of his drink and pushed the glass to the side. "Something wrong?"

"It's been declined," the bartender said.

Garrus clicked his mandibles in irritation. "That can't be right," he said. "Try it again."

The bartender crossed her arms. "It won't work," she snapped. "Besides, like I said, you've had enough."

"Fine," Garrus rumbled. "I'm sure another bar on Omega would be happy to take my money."

"Be my guest." The bartender tossed the chit at his face, but before it could hit him, a hand snatched it neatly out of the air.

Garrus turned; the hand belonged to the human man sitting next to him at the bar. The man studied the chit, pushed it toward Garrus, and then pulled another out of his vest pocket. "Let me cover it," he said.

The asari looked at him, glanced at Garrus, then turned back to the man. "You sure?"

The man shrugged. "Why not? I hate to see a good fellow go begging for a drink. And I'll take another of these" -- he tilted his own empty glass in her direction -- "as long as you're at it."

"He's not exactly begging," the bartender grumbled, but she took the proffered chit and verified it before pouring the two drinks and handing them over. Then she slid around to the other side of the bar, as though to avoid any further conversation, not giving them another look.

Garrus turned toward his seatmate, who he thought might provide better company. )

I was looking back through my DA:I tag on Tumblr, when it hit me.

I need to decide whether this makes sense or not. But if it does, it could solve some of the issues I've had with harmonizing the two magical systems. Hmmmmmm.

[personal profile] sathari asked for my thoughts on the Final Fantasy series, including a few specific titles.

I came to the Final Fantasy series, through my husband, T. He had started playing with FFVII, before I met him. Not long after we got together, he bought FFVIII, and he would sometimes play it when I was around, and I was interested to realize that there were video games in which story and character had so much importance (before that most of my experiences were with arcade and arcade-type games, and Civilization/Sim City/other world-building type games). FFIX came out after we moved in together, and I watched the entire time he played, like watching an 80 hour movie, and I got pretty invested in it. Finally, with FFX, for the first time he handed me the controller, and I was hooked: on FFX (which to this day remains my favorite game, not just in the series but of all time), on the Final Fantasy series, and on RPGs in general.

I love the same things about the series that most of its fans love: the characters, the settings, the stories they tell. As a newbie gamer, I appreciated being able to ease into combat via turn-based systems, and that my hand-eye coordination was not often tested (I'm better at that now, though still not great). I've played most of the numbered installments, although I'm still missing some earlier games and haven't ventured into the MMOs -- my biggest gap is FFVI, which I've started several times but never finished. Someday.

Thoughts on specific games behind the cut. )

Another round of DOINK! (aka Final Fantasy Exchange) has come and gone, and although I still have plenty of modly stuff to do, I'm happy to present my gifts, both given and received.

Firstly, my gift from [archiveofourown.org profile] laughingpineapple was a really beautiful artwork of Larsa and Al-Cid, reconnecting their friendship. I think this may be the first time I've ever gotten art as a gift, so that's exciting all on its own!

"Actual Deep Political Talk"
On AO3 / On Tumblr

I only wrote the one story this year, in part because of mod stuff and in part because I'm having issues with concentrating on writing lately. (Also why I haven't been posting much.) A long story, and nothing I want to get into right now, but anyway it kept me from playing around in Moogle Fluff or taking any pinch hits. Hopefully it will all resolve soon. Anyway, I had a lot of fun with my gift to [archiveofourown.org profile] wimblydonner, who requested something about any character reacting to the changes in Spira brought by the Eternal Calm. After noodling around with some ideas, I settled on Dona and Barthello, largely because I've never really written about them before.

Title: Rebuild
Fandom: FFX/X-2
Rating: Mature
Wordcount: ~3400
Characters: Dona/Barthello, Lucil, Nooj
Spoilers: For the end of FFX, and some implied for X-2
Notes: Fits within the continuity of Aftermath, but you don't need to have read that story to understand this one.

Summary: What's a summoner to do when there's nothing left to summon, no Sin left to defeat? Dona begins to search for her own answers.

Believe it or not, I have been working on the next part of Wardens of Ivalice (my epic Final Fantasy XII/Dragon Age crossover) in fits and starts over the past year. I like what I've written so far, but I've realized that it's hard to motivate myself to work too much on the story when I feel like I have too many gaps in my attempt to merge the two universes. So it's time to start hashing these things out, and I'd love some help tossing ideas around.

Minor lore spoilers for Dragon Age and Final Fantasy XII, and for part one of Wardens of Ivalice. )
owlmoose: (yahtzee - out of context)
I finished all my 15 Characters meme prompts. There are some real doozies in this batch -- all crossovers, some more ridiculous than others. :) I hope people enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Fenris and Yuna have an argument.
"Those creatures are dangerous."


Ashe and Alistair adopt a pet.
There were many things Ashe did not expect to find in the palace gardens when she went for her morning walk, but high on that list was the Grey Warden Alistair crouched on the grass, peering between the leaves of a well-manicured bush.


Paine and Carver Hawke make a pie.
The pile of dough sat in the middle of the countertop, a congealing lump of flour, butter, and water. Paine glared at it, as though she could shape it into the form of pie crust by sheer force of will. “Are you sure you followed the recipe?”


Paine and Bethany Hawke go to a concert.
When Paine called Bethany and told her she had an extra ticket to see Ani DiFranco, Bethany wasn’t sure which made her more surprised: that Paine liked Ani DiFranco, or that Bethany rated an invitation from her.


Peggy Carter and Isabela go on a date.
Peggy was not in the habit of frequenting bars as seedy as this one, but the informant had been quite clear: in the North Sea port city of Kirkwall, the Hanged Man was “the” place to meet without attracting attention.


Isabela, Thor, and Jane Foster sit down for a nice, friendly game of Mario Kart.
Thor took the Wiimote from its charger stand and held it up to the light, squinting at it with suspicion. “I am not certain I understand,” he said.

"It’s a simulator." Jane plucked the controller from his hand and turned it sideways. "We race against each other in little cars. Hold it like this, see?"


Alistair has a crush on Steve Rogers, and Yuna tries to matchmake.
Yuna set her tray down on the cafeteria table and frowned. She met her friend Alistair here for lunch every day, and usually he greeted her with a smile and a wave. Instead, he sat silent, hunched over a plate piled with macaroni and cheese, his food barely even touched. If Alistair wasn’t eating all his lunch and half of hers, something was very wrong.

Title: Engagement
Fandom: FFXII
Rating: PG
Wordcount: ~2800
Characters: Ashe, Balthier, Raminas, Doctor Cid. Brief appearances by Fran and Vayne.
Spoilers: Not really
Notes: Written for the second round of [community profile] trope_bingo. Combines the tropes AU - Historical and Fake Relationship. Set in an AU of the colonial Caribbean (that probably owes more to PoTC than anything that actually happened in history). Thanks to [personal profile] renay for helping nurture the idea into a real plot bunny. I think this actually wants to be a 50,000 word epic romance, but I have no time for that right now. Maybe I'll come back to it someday, because I think it would be a blast.

Also on AO3

Rain had threatened over the skies of Dalmasca Island all day, but out the window of the stairwell, sun filtered through a break in the clouds. Ashe Bennington paused halfway down the stairs to push back the lace curtain and take a better look at the beams of sunlight dancing over the swell of waves. Rough water meant a storm was surely on the way, making this glimpse of sun all the more precious.

With a sigh, she let the curtain go. Her father was expecting her; best not to delay him further. She descended the rest of the staircase and nodded at the servants as she passed the hall, then knocked on the door of the study.

"Come in," her father called out, and Ashe entered the room. Her father -- Raminas Bennington, governor of Dalmasca -- rose from his seat, a warm smile beneath his graying beard. "Good morning, Ashelia."

'Good morning, Father.' )

I've been a busy bee on Tumblr for the last week or so. The resulting fics:

Cinders:

Title: Wide Open Seas
Characters: Cinders/Tobias
Prompt: "Strikhedonia: The pleasure of being able to say 'the hell with it'."
Notes: Requested by [personal profile] liri. Post-game, Traveller ending.

On the road with Cinders, Tobias gets his first taste of freedom.

---

Final Fantasy XII

Title: Cage
Characters: Ffamran Bunansa
Prompt: "Strikhedonia: The pleasure of being able to say 'the hell with it'."
Notes: Requested by [personal profile] auronlu.

"Before anything else, Ffamran Bunansa got rid of his helm."

---

Dragon Age

Title: Day in the Sun
Characters: Carver Hawke/Merrill
Prompt: "Strikhedonia: The pleasure of being able to say 'the hell with it'."
Notes: Discerning readers will notice a theme. ;) I reblogged a prompt meme that consisted of obscure words; requesters asked for a fandom, character, or pairing along with one of the words. Independently, three different people requested the same word in three different fandoms. It was an interesting exercise in taking one concept and trying to to various things with it. This was requested by [tumblr.com profile] spiritofemby and is my first shot at this pairing.

While passing through Kirkwall on his way back to the Grey Wardens, Carver pays Merrill a visit.
---

Title: Untitled
Characters: Alistair/Kasia Brosca
Prompt: "Cheiloproclitic: Being attracted to someone's lips."
Notes: Another Emby request.

Alistair has some insecurities about being king. But he can always trust Kasia to tell him the truth.
---

Title: Distant Early Warning
Characters: Duncan, Sereda Aeudcan
Prompt: "Brontide: the sound of distant rolling thunder."
Notes: Requested by [tumblr.com profile] rhiannon42.

While traveling to Ostagar, Sereda Aeducan encounters her first thunderstorm.
---

Title: After the Fall
Characters: Alistair/f!Mahariel
Notes: Inspired by this photoset on Tumblr, which discussed a potential ending for Alistair/f!Warden that was too sad; I had to fix it. Since I don't yet have a Warden OC who made the Ultimate Sacrifice, this story features an f!Mahariel who only exists here; regardless, this my headcanon as far as the lore is concerned. Violence, canon character death. Written several months ago.

After taking his Calling, Alistair learns the truth about the Ultimate Sacrifice.
--

Title: Storms
Characters: Alistair/Sereda Aeudcan
Notes: Written for Aeducan Week on Tumblr. First Time fic for Sereda and Alistair. Part of the Fidelity universe. Takes some liberties with the First Night dialogue. NSFW.

On their way out of Orzammar, Sereda and Alistair wait out a thunderstorm in her tent.

Happy DOINK! reveal, everyone! I totally scored this year, receiving not one, not two, but *three* awesome fics based on my prompts, one regular gift and two Moogle Fluff stories:

Compromise by [personal profile] lassarina - FFXII, Ashe/Balthier post-game.

There the Bones of Us May Lie by [personal profile] justira -- even more Ashe/Balthier, this one set during the game, right after Ridorana.

Warrior's Flame by [archiveofourown.org profile] Jessicamariek -- FFX, Rikku and a proper Al Bhed mourning ritual for Tidus and Auron.

I adore them all and highly recommend that you check them out.

As for me, I wrote two gifts this year:

On the Sidelines - FFX-2, Paine and Lulu. "On Yuna's first visit back to Besaid, Paine and Lulu have an opportunity to get to know each other a little better."

Dreams & Obligaions - FFXII, Ashe/Basch. "Ashe and Basch have been carrying on a secret relationship ever since the war ended. But changes will soon force their secrets to come to light, and Ashe and Basch must decide how to proceed."

Looking for more? The full collection is here. Enjoy!
owlmoose: (ff12 - balthier)
I did the 15 Characters Meme on Tumblr last week -- create a secret list of 15 characters, take prompt request with numbers standing in for the characters, see what happens -- and had a lot of fun. My list was a mixture of characters from Dragon Age, MCU, FFX/X-2, and FFXII. Some of the results (mostly on Tumblr, a few crossposted to AO3):

Steve Rogers challenges Basch fon Ronsenberg to a duel.

“I’m not so sure this was a great idea,” Bucky said, looking over his shoulder to the other side of the clearing where Basch checked the straps of his armor. “He looks pretty handy with that sword, and I don’t know if you’ve ever as much as picked one up before.”

Steve shook his head, then hooked his shield over his arm. “I don’t see that I have much choice,” he said. “That army is threatening the whole platoon. If I can save everyone on both sides by taking out their general, then I’ll do my best with a sword.”


Natasha Romanoff and Tony Stark in a love triangle, competing for the affections of another.

Tony stared across the room at Pepper, not quite certain he’d heard her right. “You have… plans? With someone who isn’t me?”

“Contrary to popular opinion, Tony Stark is not at all times the center of the universe.” Pepper crossed her arms with half a smile.


Seven and Nine get lost and argue over directions.

Character Seven was Balthier. Character Nine was Tony Stark. You have no idea how much I love this prompt.


Recast Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy as characters One and Nine. Rewrite the failed proposal scene.

The role of Elizabeth Bennet will be played by Alistair. The role of Mr. Darcy will be played by Yuna.


Alistair, Yuna, Tony Stark, and Sigrun throw a surprise party for Paine and Ashe. Two surprise party prompts combined into one story.

“C’mon, they’ll be here soon!” Sigrun ducked down behind the Warden-Commander’s desk and gestured for the others to join her. Alistair followed with a grin, but Tony didn’t move from his spot by the bar, and Yuna wavered.

“I… I don’t know,” she said. “Paine doesn’t always like surprises. I’m not sure Ashe does, either.”


Sigrun and Ashe, unexpected travel.

This prompt slots neatly into my Wardens of Ivalice AU, as a missing scene from "The Joining."


Auron and Basch are accidentally locked in a room overnight.

Auron turned the handle one last time, just to make absolutely certain there was nothing to do — he couldn’t break the lock, or bust down the door. “It seems to be sealed magically,” he said.

“Then it appears we are here for the time being.” Basch slid down the wall to take a seat on the floor, and Auron followed suit, tipping his head backwards. “I don’t suppose you carry rations?”


Ashe cuts Basch’s hair.

Though any of a hundred servants could have been called to take on the chore, Ashe feels compelled to perform this duty herself. After the Strahl is safe in the royal aerodrome but before anyone disembarks, she requests a pair of scissors, and then she cuts Basch’s hair.


Paine is afraid, because Balthier hates Yuna.

“You really think they’d come after us?”

Paine turned her head sharply to meet Yuna’s eyes. “You know Balthier wanted that sphere cache. You know you beat him to it, snatched it up from under his nose. And if you think the Youth League was mad when we pulled that stunt with them…” She shook her head. “They’ll be after us, all right."

Dragon Age:

Title: Untitled
Characters: Marissa Hawke/Fenris
Prompt: "Remember Me: one character trying to get another to remember them"
Notes: Follows the AU ficbit "Desperate Times" (Marissa Hawke loses the battle with Danarius and he takes Fenris in exchange for her life; she follows them to carry out a rescue).

Marissa Hawke twirled her staff and let loose one final blast of raw power, lifting Danarius up and flinging him into the cave wall.

Notes: Warden Twins AU.

Carver Hawke is in a bad mood, and his sister Bethany knows just how to make him smile.

“Button me up, if you would?” Ashe leaned forward and swept her hair up off her neck.

BBC Sherlock:

Title: Telephone
Characters: Lestrade
Prompt: "Mourn Me: one character mourning another"

Five months, one week, and three days later, Greg Lestrade sat at his desk.

Now that I've posted the first part of my Final Fantasy XII/Dragon Age crossover, I wanted to step back a little bit, think about the world I'm creating and how it's going to work. Spoilers for DA:O, FFXII, and also for the story itself behind the cut. Thoughts and suggestions are more than welcome!

Musings on magic, tech, and other things. )

So, that's where I am right now, at least in terms of bringing the worlds together. I have a lot of thoughts on the characters, too, and why I created the connections and teams I did, but that can wait for another day.

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to take this direction, and to all my IM friends who haven't played Dragon Age but put up with my babbling and idea-flings regardless. Enjoy!

Summary: Two years after war's end, Queen Ashe is confronted with a new threat: an invading darkspawn army, bursting from underground caverns throughout the world. Fortunately for Ivalice, Warden-Commander Elissa Cousland and her team of Grey Wardens are not far behind.
