Title: Letters
Fandom: Final Fantasy Type-0
Summary: Just as the war begins to get to Seven, someone starts to leave her letters.
Characters/Pairings: Sice/Seven, Queen.
Word count: 3285
Rating/warnings: M. Contains descriptions of war, violence and mental/emotional trauma resulting from exposure to it, and descriptions of symptoms verging on PTSD/ASD.

The first time Seven found the hastily-scrawled note left under her pillow, it had been following a raid that had nearly seen the end of Class Zero. Her clothes still smelled of smoke and fighting and everything felt off-kilter in her mind.

Title: Knowledge and Power

Rating/warnings: Teen/PG

The day Kunsel made Second Class, he sent a letter back home to his folks in Junon.

Word count: 2,860

Title: Faith Crisis
Summary: Kimahri finds himself torn between emphasizing with the desperate protection of the Crusader’s plans, and his long-standing faith in Yevon.
Characters/Pairings: Kimahri
Word count: 505
Rating/warnings: G, no warnings.
Additional Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] airship_lounge prompt, 'machine'. Kimahri was quite difficult to write, as he is very sparse in his narrative, and very blunt.

Kimahri Ronso is troubled, when he first hears of the joint operation between the Crusaders and the Al Bhed. )

Title: Honour Among Hotdogs (or How Irvine Ended Up Getting His Ass Whipped By Zell in a Hotdog Eating Championship)
Summary: Zell is ecstatic about the Garden Festival’s newest event – none other than a hotdog eating competition. Training begins, but when Irvine can’t keep his mouth shut, things go south.
Characters/Pairings: Zell, Irvine, Selphie. Small suggestions of Irvine/Selphie, though they can be construed as teasing.
Word Count: 1,083
Rating/Warning: Rated T for sexual innuendos about Zell’s orientation.
Author’s Notes: I actually ended up really liking one of my examples for the prompt ‘Training’ over on Airship Lounge’s creative workshop, so I decided to follow through with it. Zell doesn’t get enough love around these parts. I’m also playing with a new style. While I’ve tried to eliminate any tense-failing, there will always be something I missed.

Lightning’s brand is accelerating, despite her best efforts, and Fang’s quietness isn’t helping things. Taejin’s Tower is looming like a shadow in the distance, and everything is going to come to a head – whether the two like it or not.

Word Count: 1,515
Warnings: Spoilers for chapter 11 events in FFXIII.

Additional Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] freijya, who requested FF13: Okay, I have to ask. Can I have whiny!Hope or peptalk!Snow fic? The more annoying and hilarious, the better! Particularly if Lightening gets to smack some people around.

Frei also happens to be a big fan of Gurren Lagann. I hope you don’t mind this particular parody, Frei, I’m just sorry it’s taken me so long to get around to writing this out!

Okay, so we've got the links to the FF.net version of the fic, and also the individual LJ entries. To our lovely [livejournal.com profile] moogle_workshop mod, only this chapter (6,922) needs points. The other two don't. :3

For those wondering what this is, it's a trip down nostalgia lane, and focuses on the effects of the eternal war represented in Dissidia. While the heroes don't remember it all, Cosmos does. What she remembers isn't pretty, either.

Title: Inadvertent Innuendo (1/1)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zerrat
Team: Monks
Fandom(s): Dissidia: Final Fantasy/012
Pairings and Characters: Jecht, Kain/Lightning
Rating: PG (language, sexual references)
Word Count: 800
Summary: Jecht takes issue with the 'witty banter' between Kain and Lightning, in true Jecht fashion.
Author’s Notes: Lol, this was inspired by the translation of the new character encounter lines in Duodecim. A lot of us figured that the Lightning/Kain lines were a little suggestive, even though both of them were dead serious saying it. And so came this fic, and my attempt at humour.

Jecht wasn’t certain how things had even gotten to this point with those two, but one thing was for sure. He’d never laughed so hard in all his life.

Enjoy this quick attempt at humour!

Author’s Notes: Prompted by [livejournal.com profile] sai_salamander over on the [livejournal.com profile] ff_minigames prompt party! Because the world needs more of the Turks bro-ing it up.

The Ancients only knew if there were more of those Sephiroth remnants waiting around the corner…
