FFX - 'A Season Too Short'
I'd love to live in truth and not in seeming. Do you want to waste time wallowing in your own regrets, Auron? Not really. I didn't want to die, either. She is waiting for my answer. The grain of our losses is much the same, except that, Yevon unwilling, she'll keep walking into the light when I have faded into the Farplane's shadows. Why does she reach for a fading candle to warm her hands? This woman is wise. She understands I am no hero, just a man driven by oaths beyond life's ending to keep plodding forward. She doesn't believe in legends. "Autumn," I say. "I thought so." She smiles coy victory. Only Lulu could make me succumb to s

What I've Been Up to Lately
First, I keep pecking at LHaD, but it is indeed taking me forever to write the final chapters, having built up a gazillion flapping plot threads and grandiose expectations that I'm finding it hard to fulfill to my satisfaction. Also, my creative writing skills have atrophied while I've been slaving in the sordid world of freelance writing. (Epic melodrama does not bring in search traffic or income.) Don't worry; I haven't abandoned it. I want to see it through. In other news, 2013 has been the Year of the Final Fantasy Marathon, thanks to FFI-V being released on iOS. I've been playing every Final Fantasy game one after the other. I've been c
The Final Fantasy X Anti-Sequel...
Five years ago, I started Love Her and Despair, a game-length anti-sequel to FFX drawing on some of the great characters from X-2 while maintaining the darker, more epic-mythic-tragic style of the first game (and a lot more Auron). During the course of writing LHAD, I've finished grad school, gone out and carved myself a niche as an online writer, and had two major surgeries, so the saga has been published in fits and starts. Will I manage to finish it by December 14th, the story's five-year anniversary? Probably not, but I'm trying. A few readers have been inspired to create FANART for this story, and I am humbly in their debt! I want to i
My FFX Fanfiction Recommendations
Ahoy! Are you looking for great Final Fantasy X fanfiction? Tired of wading through Mary Sues, high school AUs, and stories that are so OOC that you can't recognize the characters at all? Here! My FFX Fanfiction Reading List! I've selected a variety of different authors who also have other good fanfics to their name, and I've found stories focusing on different characters, ships, or plain old genfic. Read 'em! There's some gems out there! Or please suggest your own in my guestbook. I'm particularly looking for a good Tidus & Yuna story to recommend, as I haven't found a show-stopper yet.

Loving the story, thus far. Can't wait for the final chapters. Maybe when you're done, you can put a happier ending on "Prisoners of Fate"

You're amazing, seriously. Your stories are some of the best I've read and your art is wonderful. Plus. SNOW SCULPTURES? Not something you see every day.

I was hoping that someday, you'd get around to finishing LHaD... I don't want to bug you about it. Just letting you know you've got at least one watcher waiting anxiously for the end...!

Now I just need to get around to doing fanart which is the other reason I'm commenting and bugging you here today :3

Ack, i haven't checked my DA account in far too long! 

Thank you. I canNOT let LHaD get stuck where it is now: I have bits and pieces of the final chapters in my head or on my iPad, but it's been jammed for so long. 

I won't let it end here, though. I mustn't. 

(Fanart?!)

Yeah! I was hoping to draw some fanart of your work.... I don't remember what scenes, but I guess I'll just have to re-read it to remember, huh?

I love pretty much everything of yours I read, so please continue your writing! Of special note is the bardic-circle retelling of FFX, that was so freaking amazing! I have the poem from the end memorized.

Please don't let it end here. Your work has seriously inspired and amazed me in ways I never thought possible! I don't necessarily ship all of the pairings you use, but the way you write them leaves me not really caring how I see them in the perspective of the game.

I am always stunned and honored by fanart. :)

And MintyWolf is right: I'm going to see if I can devote NaNo to LHAD. 

(And I've moved away somewhat from the ships that grabbed me five years ago, but if they make sense, they should work as literary devices even when I'm not doing it just because I love seeing them together.)
