Xmas Drabble Fest 2011

And suddenly, it was December.  When did that happen?

I was seriously considering not doing this year, but what the hell, it's become tradition.  I'm opening this post for giftfic prompts.

There's very little chance that I'll have any done for in time for Xmas, since I'm in the middle of doing an employment test that will take up pretty much all of my spare time next week, but really, how different is that to any other year?  I'm also not going to try and fill all of them, since despite best intentions I failed dismally at this last year and so shall not attempt to do so again.  I'll do my best, of course, but just inoculating against disappointment now.  As always, there are also no guarantees on either length or quality.  I tend to write these by the seat of my pants.

You should all know my fandoms and the general rules of prompting by now.  But just for a quick refresher, include these three things in your prompt:

A. The fandom
B. The character/s (or pairings, if relevant)
C. Some kind of prompt


...And I should really stop misusing the word 'drabble'.  They're shortfics.  I am utterly incapable of writing genuine drabbles.

Happy Holidays!

same here lol~ dun worry!

A. Kuroshitsuji
B. Sebastien + Ciel (gen, not pairing)
C. would like it set in modern day London, but using their characters from the original source having survived till now, it'll be interesting to see their take on recent events =D

I want to know when December happened, too D: I have all these finals and not enough time...

A. Fifth Act tired of seeing this yet
B. Sephiroth/Cloud/Genesis
C. Sephiroth and Genesis like Cloud. Cloud is oblivious. Hilarious battles for affections ensue.

You've also made me love Cloud/Genesis pairing how could you

And one of the only reasons I've been using LJ this month at all was to look for this post. :D

I wish you luck on your employment test (despite not knowing what an employment test actually is)!

If you want to do my prompt:

A. FFVII/Fifth Verse (bet you were expecting that...)
B. Genesis/Chibi!Cloud/Cloud (prob expecting that one too)
C. Chibi finds out who Cloud actually is

I would love to see this done, but I won't hold it against you if you don't. lol <3

And again, I hope the test goes well for you!

How you manage to do this every year surprises me, but I always love reading the results *v*

Good luck on that employment test! <33

A. FFVII/Fifth Act-verse (...you're probably wondering if this is ever going to end...)
B. primarily Seph+Cloud+Gen, with cameo guest appearances from the rest of the cast
C. A continuation of your drabble from last year for [info]silvershadowkit. So what happened after Zack consoled Sephiroth, Cloud punched Zack, then Genesis set Zack on fire?

(I'm curious about seeing the science behind S-cell interfacing/reaction, because Fifth Act seemed so thoroughly researched and thought out. I hope this isn't too much to ask for a drabble. Please feel free to ignore if it is...)

Well heck… I was going to request a Fifth act drabble, but I think you might have hit your quota…
Ah well…

If you’re still game, here’s another:

A. Fifth Act
B. Seph/Angeal/Genesis
C. Mother issues … Genesis?!?

My idea for this:
They’re all up in the observation deck with Cloud, watching Chibi!Cloud working on his sword techniques… & dear lil’ guy isn’t all that impressive against his fellow cadets.
Perhaps he’s been spending all his time hanging out on the Genesis fan club sites instead of sword practice or something.

Seph makes a comment to Cloud pondering how he ever managed to defeat him in his past.

A rather ticked off Cloud admits that while his swordsmanship probably wasn’t all that at their 1st encounter, it didn’t matter.
Since Seph was so enraptured gazing up at Jenova, thinking it was his Mother, Cloud got the drop on him.

At that point, Cloud takes off to go see about Chibi!, and the 3 of them are left.
After a bit of stunned silence, Genesis can’t help his snarky self and makes some comment about Seph having Mother issues.

Angeal, probably sensing that really isn’t a good topic to poke Seph about, immediately jumps in before Seph can respond.
He tells Genesis, that he of all people should be the last to ever comment on anyone else having Mother issues, considering the women that he’s dated in the past.

Genesis is rather stunned by that remark, replying that none of his girlfriends either have looked or acted like his Mother in anyway, what are you talking about?

Angeal gives him a rather stunned look back, then just laughs and explains that the (2 or 3?) times Gen was ever seriously involved with a woman, she looked just like a younger version of his beloved former housekeeper, who practically raised him.
Perhaps the women also shared some amusing personality quirk that the housekeeper also had – feel free to run with it.

At the end of it, I pictured a rather flabbergasted though amused Genesis admitting Angeal has a point.
Sephiroth, who had been rather silent during all this, looks rather puzzled at Genesis and remarks he never knew Genesis … dated woman.

I wasn't gonna leave a prompt 'till I saw that all but one are for a single fandom (that I am not in). So because that's boring, I'll ask, too!

A. Persona 4
B. Kanji and Naoto, pairing would be nice but friend!fluff works, too
C. Learning (i.e. studying together or one of them trying to teach the other how to do something. (I believe prompts should be vague to leave room for author creativity~ <3)

Hey! You're doing this! I'm Yanslana from ffnet, the one who drooled over Act V in October. Anyway: Alright! I knew it was a good idea to check your LJ around December, and yeah, when did /that/ happen?! But I'm so glad I remember to take a peek here! ^_^

I had a funny idea ever since reading Fallacious Deity, so...

Fandom: The Fifth Act/Fallacious Deity crossover
Character: Cloud & ensemble
Prompt: Either the Cloud from FD finds closure (a home) with Tifa in the timeline that Act V's Cloud couldn't return to, this is assuming that Act V & FD are different universes... or... assuming FD's group are trying inter-dimensional travel to go home, they land in Act V, the survivors of FD finds Act V's Cloud, and was /very confused/ on why he isn't killing Sephiroth.

Characters: Sephiroth, Angeal, Genesis, Zack, Cloud
Prompt: Trip to the golden saucer. XD have fun.

As expected, Fifth Act is a pretty popular prompt. ._.

I like Fifth Act, but I'm kinda afraid you might get tired of writing it, so I guess I'll give you 3 prompts to pick (one of them being Fifth Act-verse). 'X3

A. Fifth Act
B. Cloud and cast
C. '...Of course, that didn't mean he wouldn't continue to do small things to improve the lives of his former friends. He could do something about the incident in Corel that led to Barrett losing his arm and Marlene losing her parents. Make sure Nanaki stayed safe in Cosmo Canyon. Help Cid get into space. Support Reeve with his plans, try to find some way to prevent Rufus becoming so ruthless, and make sure Shalua and Shelke didn't run afoul of Deep Ground or Avalanche.'
Maybe a little snippets on how Cloud does that with his new comrades? :3

or

A. A Traditional Ninja Romance
B. TezuRyo, of course :X
C. Tezuka cuts a deal with the Samurai Ninja... what was the specific details? How did the conversation actually went? Was there some shady details that Tezuka's keeping privy of, considering that he was pretty quiet when Ryoma talked about Nanjiroh. *hyperactive imagination*

or

A. Another Witchmaker (mm, I like digging out old fandoms :X)
B. Duran-centric
C. Duran's grief was suppressed by faerie and the elementals. So... What happens after the final battle? Some comfort would be nice. :3

A. FF7, Fifth Act-verse
B. Sephiroth, Cloud, mini-Cloud
C. ...it just seemed like something his uncle Cloud would do.

I also have a lot of spam in my inbox , sorry for the subject heading but I think it's something to do with Shinra's marketing and Wall Market.

Longtime lurker here~ I really love your Christmas drabbles! I'm glad you're doing them again this year. If I'm not to late, I'd like to make a request.

A. Final Fantasy VII
B. Cloud, Kunsel
C. A happy ending to Dear Kunsel! Please?

But if you don't like that prompt (I can understand why you wouldn't want to, at least), then:

A. Natsume Yuujinchou
B. Natsume
C. Something involving Natsume's human friends (both the ones that know about and don't know about Youkai) and snow

Happy holidays!
