ART: Moogle Yoga

Note: this is not me making fun of yoga. This is me making fun of my inability to do yoga. Also it's all my partner's fault.

ART: Sephiroth, "beloved"

Based on an RP [personal profile] apprentice_lurk and I play around with sometimes. Sephiroth clad in body paint and his hair and nothing else! You're welcome. :D

On Pixiv (semi-NSFW, no visible bits)

I'm sure I'll look back on this and go 'ew, it's awful' six months from now, but I'm glad I forced myself to do this and I hope to force myself to do more digital painting in the future.

Occasionally we cosplay.

The last cosplay project I did was NY Comic Con a few years ago. I was a (poorly-conceived) steampunk moogle. Let's see if I've gotten any better, shall we?

Femme!Sephiroth and a chocobo at Kupocon '17! )

The actual con was kind of... eh. I mean, they had a lot of good ideas, but there wasn't a lot to do ultimately. We got bored/tired and left a couple hours early. To be fair it was their first year doing cons and a pretty small con at that. My favorite moment was when two younger girls squealed "DISPEAR!!! :DDD" at me while we were posing for our Official Picture. So I amused somebody, after all that money and effort. I guess there's worse outcomes. :D

FIC: On Broken Wings, chapter 13

Two days later, Sephiroth emerged from the Blue Dolphin with a basket full of laundered clothes and nearly bumped into someone coming up the walk. (On AO3)

I'm trying to just follow my muse lately, i.e. it doesn't matter what I work on as long as I produce SOMETHING before I go to bed every day. Hence, this meander off Plot Avenue.

I've done a couple of fics.

First, new chapter of Fluffiroth, finally - Chapter 12 - Junker District

Second, a brief bit of Star Wars AU - Hope, Reversed

And last, playing extremely fast and loose with timelines, have some idfic with Autobots reacting to the current political situation in America - A Kick in the Skid

That is all. As you were.

FIC: On Broken Wings, chapter 11

This might be the last chapter I post until after New Years, because retail sucks.

Sephiroth was invited to stay for lunch - as Barret had promised, Tifa's chowder was worth waiting for... (On AO3)

There's going to be a lot of crap Seph has to deal with in coming chapters. But first, dinner out.

Years of training and experience in warfare could not prepare Sephiroth for wontons. (On AO3)

In which Sephiroth finds something ominous, at the cost of his dignity.

"Oh, hi, Mister Rude. Are you here to see Tifa?"

(Spoiler: NOPE.)

I swear I will do something on here besides wave my fic at my friendslist. I'm not very good at having stuff to say.

On AO3

Finally, we get to the new content. Seph is still working out how to be human in this new world. Or at least approximate it.

So, seen the new FF7-R trailer yet?

So apparently Squenix decided not enough people were talking about VII-R and released a gameplay trailer. With the usual caveats that this is a work in progress and may be tweaked, I have a few thoughts:

- The combat appears to be roughly FFXII-style, as far as I can make out. Which is about what I expected, but still kind of disappointing. The combat in XII felt too clumsy and uncontrolled to me. Straight turn-based wouldn’t really fit with the rest of the design anymore, but at the very least I’m hoping it’ll play more like Kingdom Hearts than XII.
- The expanded dialogue sounds great. So does the voice acting. (Except for Wedge. Poor Wedge, what have they done to you?) …unfortunately the dubbing is pretty awful. That sort of thing usually doesn’t bother me, but it’s immersion-breaking in this trailer.
- Moving around the map appears to have more to it than hold-X-to-run, which is an improvement. And it’s bigger, or at least seems that way due to the new camera angle - hopefully this means more little corners to poke in and little details to discover.
- I am happy about the art. It still looks like Midgar.
- Cloud looks terrible. Like he really has just escaped from a lab. His arms are so skinny and there’s shadows under his eyes, the poor thing.
- I’m fairly sure we saw Barret’s Hot Shot - it looks awesome. And GUARD SCORPION. Holy crap, it’s terrifying.
- Why is Barret wearing sunglasses at night? So he can, so he can see the light that’s right before his eyes.

Overall I’m impressed, but I’m trying to sit on my enthusiasm. I’ve been hoping for this for years but now that it’s happening I feel kind of worried. I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t trust Squenix to be able to tell the difference between what needs updating & reworking and what should be preserved. FFVII was the game that got me hooked on RPGs, and I adore it glitches and bad dialogue and all, and a polished-up version is by necessity going to lose some of that. I’ve been kinda turned off to AAA console gaming for years now - the most recent console I own is a Wii - and if Squenix tries to make this thing fall into line with modern console games or even more modern FF games (I’m looking at you, XV), it’ll end up boring me. Or annoying me. Possibly both.

Also if I catch even a hint of Genesis, I am going to strangle someone.

(Think we’ll get some more WEAPONs to beat up? :D)

[FIC] On Broken Wings - Prologue

Getting back on the horse - er, chocobo after years of letting this fic languish in limbo. This time I'm gonna finish it, I swear.

Title: On Broken Wings
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Rating: PG (might change in the future)
Summary: Five years after Meteorfall, Sephiroth returns - the true Sephiroth, the man behind the monster. Traumatized and ill-prepared for life outside of the control of either Shinra or Jenova, Sephiroth nevertheless seeks redemption for the suffering and death he caused: starting with the man who was forced to kill him.

Every FFVII fan does an Aeris Lives AU. It's inevitable.

I couldn't sleep last night partially because this scene was kicking and screaming in my head. I stayed up an hour past my bedtime to write it, so I hope it appreciates this.

Cloud and the others reached the crystal altar... )
