Rose In Winter

Time to move on.

So this has been a while in coming, I think. I am primarily on Dreamwidth these days, and I don't wish to keep up my fic journal in two places.

I won't be deleting or privating any fic here; anything you've bookmarked will remain so. Pointers to new fics will be at my personal journal, lassarina. If you don't care to wade through my life to get at the irregular fic, you can follow me on Dreamwidth directly at [community profile] rose_in_winter, or on Archive Of Our Own. Fair disclosure: I don't post drabbles to AO3.

Thanks for following! I've enjoyed having you.
Rose In Winter

[Final Fantasy VI] From Battles Never Done

Characters/Pairings: Celes, Edgar, referenced Celes/Locke
Rating: G
Contains: Spoilers up to Phoenix Cave
Notes: Written for astrangerenters in the 2009 round of ff_exchange. The prompt was FF6, Edgar, Celes, World of Ruin. Some ideas: Edgar's "secret" identity, Celes coping with a missing Locke, an unlikely relationship or bond developing between them. Romance or friendship, any rating (but any relationship should be consensual). The title is from WB Yeats' "The Rose of Battle," which seemed kind of fitting for Celes.
Wordcount: 1003
Summary: Even in the World of Ruin, some things still grow--like friendships.
Beta: None

[Final Fantasy IV] Into the Dawn

Pairing: Cecil/Rosa
Rating: G
Contains: End of game spoilers,
Notes: This was written for ff_exchange's 2009 round. The prompt was FFIV: OGC, Cecil replacing Baron as Odin. I would prefer a more somber approach to the subject as opposed to a humor centered story. I would potential like the inclusion of Cecil choosing his foster heritage (Baron and his adopted family of Cid, Rosa, and Kain) over his birth heritage (the moon people). It falls into Lucis Ante Terminum, although it stands alone.
Wordcount: 1760
Summary: Cecil's first day as King is a trying one.
Beta: None

Notes: Written as Chocobo Down for the 2009 round of ff_exchange. The prompt was, FFVIII: Zell, Selphie and Irvine. Laying low during a mission gone horribly wrong, licking their wounds (so to speak) and making plans to get out of trouble.
Wordcount: 1219
Summary: They're between a rock and a hard place, but they'll make it through. They always do.
Beta: None

Notes: Written as Chocobo Down for the 2009 round of ff_exchange. Prompt: FFVI / FFIX crossover: Zidane VS. Locke: The Final Countdown! Some kind of competition to see who's the best thief-- I mean, treasure-hunter. Moogle announcers optional!
Wordcount: 1165
Summary: It's an epic race through an insane obstacle course to see who can reach the Crystal Trophy!
Beta: None

[Final Fantasy Tactics A2] Memories Lined In Ink

Characters/Pairings: Adelle/Luso
Rating: G
Contains: Spoilers for the majority of the game, as well as the Duelhorn sidequests (in a sideways manner)
Notes: Written for [Unknown LJ tag] as part of the 2009 round of ff_exchange. The prompt was FFTA2. Luso and Adelle together and afraid before the final battle. Romantic undertones, but no actual resolution or being-together-ness. Ends with a kiss on the cheek.
Wordcount: 1114
Summary: Before the final battle, Luso takes a few minutes to look back.
