[livejournal.com profile] ellnyx being a genius, and with [livejournal.com profile] laylah being its founding father person, we are happily revealing the April kink-based prompt list for No True Pair tomorrow!

Nyx and I went a-testing, and on my end with my character lists I'm getting things like: Methos and Tseng, with blood! Tseng owing Estraven and repaying him in Interesting Ways!

SO GO FORTH, SIGN UP, AND PREPARE FOR AWESOME.

\o\ I pimp it, therefore I am going to get some rest.
karanguni: (BALTHIER beckons)
[livejournal.com profile] ellnyx and I were talking [livejournal.com profile] nasdack, and in between lots of guilty feelings and a lot of random conversational tidbits, she provided this prompt: Balthier/Tseng/Rufus - inversion of roles/ceremony - love came in accordance with what he promised, and not only out of gratitude. And lo, I have written something:

~900 words. Tseng/Rufus/Balthier. Very soft R.

Tseng doesn't offer any explanation when Rufus looks at him in askance. 'I'm sorry we're late,' he says instead. )


THEN SOMEHOW, TENTACLES GOT MENTIONED. Mayhap it is because shoe-kink still is unfathomable to Nyx, she instead jumps forward towards tentacles:

(12:13:58 AM) nyx: b/t/r, TENTACLE SEX
(12:14:00 AM) K: OKAY
(12:14:02 AM) K: YOU ARE ON
...
(12:14:11 AM) K: I WILL TENTACLE SEX THOSE THREE
(12:14:16 AM) nyx: NO NONO
(12:14:23 AM) K: WHAT IS THAT YOU ARE SAYING
(12:14:24 AM) K: YES YES YES?
(12:14:25 AM) nyx: THOSE THREE SEX THE TENTACLES
...
(12:14:44 AM) K: RUFUS DARING BALTHIER OR VICE VERSA
(12:14:45 AM) nyx: YES
...
(12:14:52 AM) K: SUCKERS
(12:14:53 AM) nyx: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Now that I have ascertained that this is NOT MY FAULT, I am here to enable. Here we go, tentacle porn. Or, uh, the closest I could get to it, anyway. NOT BRAIN SAFE. NOT HEAD SAFE. It's almost work safe. BUT IT HAS TENTACLES. FOR [livejournal.com profile] nasdack VERSE. If that doesn't warn you, NOTHING WILL! I blame the meds and 350am! CAVEAT LECTOR.

[edit] NOW KNOWN AS:

SQUID PRO QUO

Warnings for squick! ~900 words. R. Tseng, Rufus, Balthier/DRUG PRODUCING TENTACLE MONSTER.

Crack, tentacles, and, uh, yeah. Crack and tentacles. )


[[edit]]

I think it is fair warning to direct readers to the copy of this post on nasdack, where, in the comments, Nyx illustrates how she is 2000 times crazier than I am.

HEY [livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae, WANT TO COME NARRATE NASDACK FOR US? VERBALLY?

My god, I haven't written in so long. *___*

Tired K is tired, but here is fic:

Entropy, And Financial Fantasy

Fandom: FFXII/FFVII (Stockmarket AU)
Characters/Pairings: Balthier/Rufus, implied Tseng/Rufus, Balthier/Tseng
Rating/Warnings: PG13
Word Count: 2529
Summary: Rufus re-negotiates his territory. Balthier rearranges it.

Functional explanation: The joint fault of [livejournal.com profile] karanguni and [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx.

( Entropy isn't Tseng's favoured form of therapy. )
karanguni: (TSENG smiles)
The dirty deed is done, my friends. The stockmarket AU is done - rewritten in some parts, and with... a lot of words added on. It's worth your while to read it from beginning up even if you followed the original! :D :D Very worth it.

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stockmarket
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Rufus/Tseng
Rating: Hard R overall
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: The stock markets exploded. Balthier, Rufus and Tseng are hot. More excuses here.

Part 1: Is that a trust fund in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Part 2: Some Things You Can't Buy, For Everything Else There's The Theoretical Joint Bunansa-Shinra Empire

Part 3: Or, How Tseng Teaches Us To Stop Worrying And Love The Platinum Credit Card

2558 words on the first, 6907 words on the second, 8988 words on the third and more of... everything all around! \o\

Do follow [livejournal.com profile] nasdack for immediate futures (okay, stopping with the financial puns now) and great profits. :D THE AU DOES NOT END HERE.
karanguni: (RENO turns)
For your random fic-reading needs: some stuff on Rufus and Tseng, built for the stockmarket AU but essentially applicable to anything. Remove "New York" and replace with "Midgar", remove "Chicago" and replace with "Junon", and viola.

Collapsing into bed now.
karanguni: (BALTHIER beckons)
IT'S GROWING INTO SOME BIZARRE KIND OF MONSTER. I warn you. I wrote this under the influence of a green tea latte and Britney Spears. Your sanity is not insured, no more than your financial instruments are.

Previous episodes:

Part the first
Part the second

You don't really have to read them in any order. I don't even know if we have an order.

2636 words and ho'shit, five thousand backstories! \o\

'Good boy,' Tseng says with a smile. )

[edit] Now with additional Deleted Scenes and sex in the comments! Hooray! \o\

If you liked the last Tseng/Balthier stockmarket thingy, I advise you to go lick Nyx's feet over here, because she does it all so fucking beautifully.
karanguni: (BALTHIER works)
Strange Untitled Stockmarket!AU

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stock Exchange
Rating: PG-99
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Tseng/Rufus
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: It's all [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx's fault. A good chunk of this belongs to her, adapted to fit the situation and tense. You can read the original crack-ery here to see precisely which bits. Nyx: I apologise. Profusely. But probably not profusely enough.

Mostly, this is just a trader!AU: in which Tseng and Balthier make money on the gone-to-shit stock markets of our world. And Rufus waggles his eyebrows a bit. Hooray!

2425 words and oh, such a hell I am going to for this. Beware un-beta'd tense shifts!

'Are you an optimist?' Balthier would say into the receiver, when Tseng picked up. )

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
