Xmas Giftfic Palooza 2013

It's a little bit early, but I'm opening this post for Christmas giftfic prompts! Because it turns out I'm a slave to masochistic traditions.

This is an especially dumb idea this year on my part, because I am going globe-trotting so theoretically will probably not have much time for fic-writing. But what time I will have is probably better suited to short fics, and I'm almost finished with A(r)mour, and maybe if I post now I'll manage to get at least a couple of giftfics out before Christmas? One can only hope! Though let's be realistic, I only gave up on last year's lot five months ago, fully expect that timeline to repeat itself.

I almost certainly won't be able to fill all of them, historically I tend to max out around a dozen, but then again you never know, maybe THIS will be the year I manage to keep them drabble-length! With that in mind, as usual there are also no promises of length or quality, giftfics always tend to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of output and yeah, I've been known to get experimental with them (and experiments sometimes fail).

Okay, so rules for prompting!

Format for prompt is something like this:

A. Fandom and/or universe
B. Characters and/or pairings, if relevant (if you just give me a straight up fandom prompt I’ll choose the characters myself)
C. Some kind of prompt, e.g. 'Barret has a crippling fear of tonberries'. Max one sentence.

Fandoms are somewhat open, but obviously your odds of getting your prompt filled are higher if you stick to something I have at some point displayed knowledge of or interest in. Feel free to ask if you're not sure, or if I don't know the fandom very well I'll tell you and you can prompt something else if you want.

I think that covers it! Most of you guys already know the score I'm sure. :P

In other news, the cosplay masterlist has been updated, and Kill La Kill has turned out to be an immensely entertaining anime despite (or maybe because of) the hilariously gratuitous nudity and ludicrous setting.

This post is now closed for new prompts - hang onto your plot bunnies for next Xmas!

A. Final Fantasy VII

I wanted to say that :D
(And seriously, no one ever complains if you don't keep them drabble lenght. No. one. EVER.)

A. Final Fantasy VII, game proper
B. Reeve Tuesti (and/or Cait Sith, since it's STILL not entirely clear where one ends and the other begins in the original)
C. Any major battle from the point of view of the salaryman civilian armed with nothing but a remote-controlled robotic cat and a stuffed Mog.

The little things that changed in Reeve/Cait Sith's interactions with AVALANCHE as they began accepting him as one of the team.

EDIT: Sorry, hope it's not too late; going to change my previous prompt after some thought. Please feel free to go with either!
EDIT 2: Cut down the length because apparently, I can't read rules. D'oh.

A. Final Fantasy VII - A Fifth Act

Oh....oh oh oh oh oh.

Aw man you would put this up now and I've spotted it before falling into bed and I'll end up thinking about it all night if I don't random braindump here right now.

And of course the first thing to mind is crack. The brain is after all the crack. Although if you take this on and make it serious I'll die of awe.

1. FFVII
2. Cloud and Kunsel
3. "You're showing a bit too much leg there. Maybe I should drive."
"Of course I'm showing leg. This is what happens when I'm stuck in a Gaia damned dress, trying to drive my bike and fight off monsters. I'd like to see you try."

Um...Maybe not that one >.>

*thinks some*

1. Fifth Act
2. Cloud & Angeal
3. A hand-to-hand combat lesson like the rookie SOLDIERs have never seen.

That's a safer suggestion?

I should prompt some KHR 1827 but I really want Cloud being Cloud. Because there is no such thing as too much of your take on Cloud. Or your Kunsel.

Hope you've survived the storms okay. One of my friends who came up for Brisnova was stuck on the train heading for the airport when that 4pm-ish storm ripped past Brissy.

A. The Fifth Act
B. Angeal/Cloud or gen
C. Angeal tries to make up for kidnapping Cloud.

I just finished reading The Fifth Act and I've always been intrigued by Angeal's role in the part that got Cloud captured by Hollander and then Hojo and wondered if he was ever haunted by it. Mostly how much of it was because of his desperation caused by degradation since it was just so dishonourable the way he went about it. Or you can just ignore this, I am clearly thinking way too much about this fic.

I was going to ask for a Fifth Act drabble with Cloud & Angeal, but I see you have already rec'd that as a request.

Hmm...
How about...
A. Fifth Act or Beloved
B. Cloud & Genesis
C. "unexpected talent" (keep it clean :p)

;u; I'm sorry that I'm anon, but I don't have a livejournal account.. But I'm a huge huge huge fan of your fics like you'd never believe.

A. The Fifth Act
B. Cloud (The older one)
You mention (imply?) in chapter 19 that Cloud had developed a fanclub at some point.
C. What does said fanclub do?

Or...

C. Avalanche -Something about how all the members meet, somehow. c:

Trying to leave it open ended, so fill if it inspires you. c:
(I end up reading every x-mas drabble you write anyway, regardless of fandom/prompt, because they're all so awesome ;u; )

No doubt, many are gonna request TFA/FFVII, so... I'll leave 3 non-related ones up for pickings. Write one and I'll be a happy fangirl. ;D

1.

A. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
B. Sterling, Knox (other optional, free reign for mayor)
C. How will a town survive without Isabelle for a day?

I always thought Isabelle somehow plays an important role, but you're welcome to switch Isabelle with mayor, since the mayor's the one doing everything. 'XD

2.

A. Fire Emblem: Awakening
B. Kellam
C. Contrary to Kellam's belief, his comrades do notice him.

Because poor Kellam needs some attention! I find it amusing that no one does despite lugging a big armor around.

3.

A. Dissidia
B. Warrior of Light & Garland (can be slash)
C. What happens if Garland beats Prishe in the beginning?

Just my curiosity... and WoL is my fav and needs more love. :x

Hey Sin. Long time no see. I've been off in writer's block land. Nice to see you're still about. If I'm not too late, take your pick of a prompt. (If you can't tell, kind of crave fics with female characters.)

A. FF7
B. Aeris and Tifa (you can add Yuffie if you want)
C. Anything as long as the girls are friends. Bonus points if Cloud does show up and assumes they're fighting over him.

A. FF7
B. Yuffie, Elena
C. Elena gets her Minerva Band back. (If you don't remember, you can steal it from her during the sewer fight.)

Oops it looks like I deleted one of the possible prompts.

A. FFVII - Beloved
B. Cloud, Genesis, Tifa
C. It was frustrating enough when Genesis and Tifa didn't get along, but them actually agreeing on things is so much worse.

Eek, late!

Some possibilites?

A. FFVII: TFA
B. Cloud, Zack and/or Aeris
C. One of them manages to pry some future history out of Cloud, and how they react.

A. FFVII: Beloved
B. Cloud/Genesis
C. Cloud knows Genesis likes grand gestures, too bad his attempt at romance suffers from Cloud being Cloud.

A. Dissidia: Fallacious Deity
B. whoever feels appropriate
C. Cloud finally makes it home.

Umm...something not Cloud-centric...

A. FFVII: TFA
B. Sephiroth
C. Where did all these friends come from?

Nov. 23rd, 2013 08:40 pm (UTC)
A. Dissidia 012
B. Sephiroth, Cloud.
C. I just read that Sephiroth can be Cloud's assist partner in the game. I want a fic of that XD

Wow! It's another year now! I've died in Guild Wars 2... but! I remembered to check out your LJ for the Christmas fic prompts, and here it is!

A. Act V/Beloved
B. Cloud, Genesis
C. I recall you or someone making a comment that since Act V & FD have a crossover, and FD and Beloved were crossed a year later, only a matter of time that Act V & Beloved would cross! And someone else mentioned that the Genesis from Act V would totally approve! XD

Or..

A. Act V
B. Cloud & Act V
C. Would Act V people ever get to meet the Zack that's with(in) Cloud?

A: FFVII - I'd prefer Fifth Act or Beloved but whatever muse hits you is fine with me. It's all awesome.

Cloud gets stuck in a time loop with ___. It wouldn't be so bad if ___ didn't have so much fun with it. I'd be fine with any or all of the Firsts in a no consequence scenario. :) Bonus if the get out of loop requirement is something corny/unexpected like getting Cloud to smile because the goddess thinks it's adorable.

B: Natsume Yuujin Chou

Overprotective/proud Madara and Natsume in any way you like it. Natsume's first date, Natsume's first hangover, life threatening danger, family reunions, Matoba in general, etc.

I couldn't decide so I am writing both down. Thank you ahead of time even if you choose not to do either of these prompts.

A. FFVII: Fifth Act
B. Cloud, Turks, and whoever else is needed
C. The meeting after in which the Turks are told that Cloud is a time-traveler.

A. Dissidia: Fallacious Deity
B. Tidus and other characters as needed
C. Whether Tidus disappears before making it home, makes it home only to disappear, or finds a way to not disappear and the Dissidia crew's reaction to not being told what was happening with him.

Uwaaahh Sorry I'm lateeee!

I've been reading all of your FFVII fics, and I just fell in love with them!! Especially Beloved... So, would it be okay if I also left a prompt? It would be something like

A.Beloved
B.Cloud and Genesis (and anybody else)
C.Cloud's friends realize how close they'd been from completely losing Cloud. (I just wanted to see how they would react once they realized that.)

or...

A.The Fifth Act/FFVII
B.Cloud, Zack and Kunsel
C.Cloud gets his Fenrir back. Zack and Kunsel are just amazed. (I just love this trio! ^^)

I know this one's been on the brain for a while...
I've been rather shamelessly lurking, but in my defense, I only happened on your writing about two months ago. Not much of a defense, but hey. Either way, this one's been chasing me around since I read The Fifth Act....


A. FF7 - The Fifth Act
B. Cloud.... and whoever else works
C. Something comes up where Cloud's heritage has to come out into the open (i.e., something happens where Rufus needs a bone marrow transplant or something, and the president and Lazard both are non-matches, or anything else where genetic similarity is highly relevant).

Ah, sorry anon, prompts closed at Christmas. I don't typically manage to fill them all anyway... but maybe try again next Christmas if you're still lurking then?
