Hidden Light - Author Ackowledgments

When I began this fanfic, I knew almost nothing about Final Fantasy VII.  In fact, all that I did know came from watching the movie Advent Children sometime in late 2006.  The movie, while initially very confusing, sparked two images:  (1) a strange, childlike woman with black-and-white hair floating in a tank illuminated by moonlight and (2) this same woman being shot by a combat hologram of Vincent Valentine.  I yearned to write these two scenes.  The first was simple; it was the beginning after all, but the second just didn't have enough emotional impact on its own.  To give that image weight, I needed to craf

Chapter 18: Walking On "...cent. Vincent. Wake up." A damp cloth stroked his face, clearing his eyes of film and grit. Vincent blinked, feeling consciousness return. He could feel the pain lurking behind a muzzy wall of painkillers, but, for the moment, he could breathe and think again. The cloth lifted, revealing a familiar face. Vincent lifted his hand to touch her cheek. "Hikari. You're all right?" That sunrise smile rose on her face. She nodded and pressed her hand over his. "Yes, Vincent. I am all right." He ran his fingers through the black side of her hair. Holy and Meteor were safely hidden away, but their mark of unmatched eyes

Chapter 15: Nekura's Experiment "You don't try to understand anything. You just shoot at it. Or you run away." "You just shoot... Or you run away." "You run away." Nekura's words stabbed Vincent like knives as he clung to the overhead duct-work and watched clones march past, combing the corridors. First Hikari, now his friends... I can't help them if I'm captured, Vincent told himself firmly. Nekura won't kill them. He's a scientist. He'll keep them alive, at least for now. I have a little time. The internal arguments were not much help. So Vincent turned his mind towards more practical matters, such as how to find everyone. I need a map

Chapter 14: Surprise, Surprise "Time to wake up, Mr. Valentine." The voice cut through the darkness engulfing Vincent. His head felt muzzy and his muscles ached. What happened? Why do I--? Memory flooded back. Hikari! Vincent tried to open his eyes. The sluggish response of even that tiny action made a tendril of fear coil in his gut. But finally he forced them open and wished he had not. Why is it every time I wake up, I'm in a scientist's laboratory? There were no windows, so he could not tell if he was deep underground, in the middle of a building, or on a ship of some kind. The lack of movement suggested one of the first two options,

My Bio
I'm a 2010 graduate of Penn State Mont Alto with a B.A. in English. Anime, manga, and cosplay didn't come into my life until my freshman year of college when I picked up Last Exile, but as soon as it did, I was hooked. As a "scavenger" cosplayer, I tend to buy the parts for my costumes and piece them together from items on hand, but I do plan on learning how to construct my own costumes from scratch.

In my free time (hah, what free time?) I like to read fantasy novels and manga, draw using traditional media, take walks, spar, sing, and swim. I also write poems, fanfiction, and novels. My dream is to become a fantasy novelist, book editor, and possibly a manga-ka.
