Comment to be added. Just don't be offended if I don't add, though; if I know you, no issue; if we've similar interests/communities, probably fine; but if nothing at all, and no particular reason, well...probably not.

A compilation of recommended FF13 fictions found throughout the net that is not available on FFnet (well-written fics on ffnet have been compiled into a list on Précis). As I come across any that I find to be well-written, and in character, they will be added accordingly. And if you, the author, do not wish to have your fiction linked here, please contact me and I'll remove them.

There are only two notable categories to note of at the moment, but this may change at a later date in the event that more fics of the same type (pairing, focus, character centric, etc) are found. All fictions are listed by categories, and followed by authors where possible.

A slash implies a pairing, coma implies character focus.

Current Fic Count: 24.


List is no longer up to date. I don't frequent DW enough. If you want to keep track of the fic list, refer to this page.

A collection of snippets and scenes with Fang and/or Lightning as the focus. Potential spoilers. Rated for all sorts of situations. Also based on the Japanese version of the game.

End post.

I'm sad. Truly and really, I am.

Nrgh.

Right. Anyway. So I picked up the FF13 CGI/in-game cut scenes, Japanese version. Completed. There's subs as well, and they shouldn't be difficult to find.

Nevermind that my memory on the English version of the game is semi-vague, I do at least remember enough to be able to tell that there's some big differences between both. Dialogue-wise, personalities-wise, and relationships-wise.

Vanille is less irritating in jap version. Snow is...not that much of a brash idiot. Sazh has a certain wisecrack joke that is entirely non-existent in the English version, and that's..dfgkfgd. Hope is not as annoying as well (when applicable). Fang... Faaaaang.... well, Fang lost that slang. And Serah's...mrgh.

But mostly. Most importantly.

They butchered Lightning's character. I can, however, see that people - if they watched/played both versions - will pick one side or the other depending on what they favor. Not that it matters much in the fandom. In the fandom, or 80% of it, Lightning is just a subtler version of female Squall.

I'm not even going to go into the dialogues they changed in entirety. Stuff they had no actual or good reason to change.

I am disillusioned. And sorry, pastry or no, I think I'm set on Éclair for certain now. It is beyond me how they can change details of characters so much when the scenes are almost essentially the same. I can, however, tell you that the jap ver flows a lot better compared to the eng, where...things just felt a little off every now and then.

And Diana sucks because she's happy I'm as disgruntled as her about it now.

Fandom to be potentially abandoned. So totally disillusioned and sad right now. SAD.

Hi again.

You know what I think? I think having assignments to finish means I automatically try to laze, and I end up writing half the time.

hic et nunc.
This is the reality of it all. This is what happens when Cocoon falls.

No pairings, Serah-centric, post-game. End notes in fic for more explanation and rambling.

End.

Lulz.

No. Just, no.

If this site is turning into Facebook/Twitter The Second, I'm out of here. Probably will clean out this account, since I'm still in communities, but I wouldn't be doing anything else.

I don't quite care if LJ will claim their privacy is good, or that they won't connect you without permission, or how they will allow us to enable/disable this feature - because, for god's sake, this is facebook. And we all know how facebook sucks at it, especially with all the scandal about how they don't let you delete account, keeps your information, and everything.

tl;dr: this feature, recycle bin, empty bin. Now. In the meanwhile, I'm creating a new dreamwidth account. As in now.

Just...no. I can give FFnet plenty of chances, because the problems are vastly different, but this...no. LJ, RL; separate. The lot of you in my friends list better not have connected your facebook accounts to your LJ. BECAUSE ONCE YOU HAVE, FACEBOOK WON'T DELETE IT. (Probably? More like VERY LIKELY.) I know some of you to be really private people, so I know you share my concerns. Do not crosspost anything to fb/twit. You'd be annoyed if I do that, and it's vice versa.

Where coffee is concerned.

I've been spoiled. I usually buy coffee from cafes, and now...instant coffee just makes me grimace when I drink it. Ughhh.

On a fic.

FFXIII, in particular.

I wrote this in between doing an assignment, damned scenes wouldn't get out of my mind until I wrote it out. But they are pretty short, so my assignment is safe. I just finished and submitted my assignment actually. At 5.57am. :D And I'm still fairly awake because of the coffee.

But, here.

bits and pieces.

Quite possibly the only fandom where I don't really feel like putting a pairing in. Or I tried, rather...and found out I couldn't quite do it. Oh well. Unbeta-ed because it's just too short to bother Raerae, and I'm too lazy. Possibly weird and odd phrasing. But I blame assignment as distraction.

As for FFXIII fic recs...here. If there are fics that you think should go in there, do tell me.

Damn. I think I'm on caffeine high. >_>
