I AM WATCHING ADVENT CHILDREN UNSUBBED

Mindless squee )

[edit2]

I conclude that, using Rude and Reno as examples, in the Physical World of Final Fantasy VII, Turks bounce. Even on concrete. Especially on concrete.

The ironic thing is that my favourite line - amongst all the added ones, even those spoken by Rufus and Kadaj and Tifa - in this has to be one from Cloud: Sephiroth is dead.

OBLIGATORY SCREEN CAPS )

Watching ACC is clearly the route to understanding Rufus once more. You liar. You liar. Your fingers twitch when you lie, your fingers lie for you; they animated you using them so beautifully that it doesn't matter where you move them; people are transfixed. Who needs to know what's under vain Rufus Shinra's hood? NOT ME. I AM TOO BUSY LOOKING AT YOUR HANDS, YOU LYING MANIPULATIVE BASTARD I am so incoherently in love with you again.
karanguni: (BALTHIER beckons)
Been writing a bit of [livejournal.com profile] nasdack lately (very overdue-ly, since the plotline for this, uh, plotline came up months and months and months ago). It's sort of kind of VERY terrifying that the introduction to the new arc - which isn't even on the giant list of Things To Do that Nyx and I have up - is clocking in at, oh, 5000 words.

I'm just going to be here.

Whimpering a lot.

And wondering how long the baseline of 18 major scenes is going to come up to. Multiply each scene by at least 2000 words and and and JAlfjlasjflkajsflkjfla sjfkl.

Hee hee hee. ♥

Anyone have anything in particular they'd like to see in the AU? Just to, y'know. FAN THE FLAMES. *beams*
karanguni: (dick is HIGH)
I solemnly swear to write Batman fic.

I solemnly swear to write Bruce AU sort of fic in which he turns into a pauper or something.

I solemnly swear to make Terry suffer. Again. More. A lot.

I solemnly swear to write Tseng/Veld.

I solemnly, solemnly swear to write Tseng/random guy just mindlessly screwing each others' brains out for [livejournal.com profile] nasdack.

I solemnly swear to write Genesis and Veld fucking shit up. Over something.

I solemnly swear to write Rufus getting bitched out by Reeve and then re-bitching him back. If that's grammatically possible.

I solemnly swear to write a bizarre short AU piece in which everyone is an angel and Lucifer's really angry all the time, like that isn't already status quo.

I solemnly swear that I am solemnly apologising for solemnly and swearishly spamming your flists.

I solemnly swear to find ways to cook good food from ether while I do this tomorrow on my break, because on Friday oh god on Friday ahahah Friday.

I solemnly swear that what I need is a "SCREAMING WITH MY HEAD LOPPED OFF" icon.


SO, WHO'S GOING TO KICK MY ASS TO GET ME TO WRITE WHICH OF THOSE FIRST BEFORE I FREAK OUT AND LOSE MY MIND? *BEAMS*
karanguni: (BALTHIER beckons)
So. Guess who's writing a Stephen Maturin-Tseng-Balthier like AU madfic in her head? GUESS. GUESS! :D :D :D :D :D 8D

karanguni: (BARACK chibi)
So, who's the crazy person who has decided to give as many people on the flist a present as she can? I AM! *BEAMS* In the spirit of the new year and attempting to kick my ass back into action. I've taken what prompts you guys have given me over the last however-many-times-I-decided-to-click-previous-entries, and have spun what I can. Happy new year! ♥ from this side of the universe.

[livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae generously donated her art skillz for a couple of these, and may be contributing more in the morning! IS THE WORLD NOT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE. OH YES, IT IS. ♥

numinicious - Lucifer (Lucifer, postcard) )

dnatio_memoriae: Baccano! (Luck, Claire, writing on the wall) )

white_jenna: Final Fantasy VII (Tseng, cocktail napkin) )

muse_lightning: nasdack FFVII AU (Tseng, Elena, post-its) )

knightlineninja: Cowboy Bebop (Spike, short letter) )

voksen: Baccano! (Czes, longhand letter) )

logistika_nyx: nasdack AU (Elena/Tseng: he's full of wishful thinking) )

misura: nasdack AU (Dark Nation, Rufus) )

If you feel you have been deprived a present, feel free to dump a prompt of any sort on me! After all, Chinese New Year (ha! coming from me, least traditional of people!) lasts a good long while, technically! :D Right now I am going to lean back in my seat and let my eyes explode for a while. ♥
karanguni: (RUFUS' clothes)
I DO NOT KNOW WHY THE UNIVERSE LIKES ME SO MUCH RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE TODAY HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE.

TSENG. DRAWN. PAINTED. WITH RUFUS. BY [livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae. IF YOU DO NOT LOSE AT LEAST A FEW BRAINCELLS LOOKING AT THE SHEER HOTNESS OF HIS SUIT AND RUFUS IN A TIE, YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY BLIND AND MUST LOOK CLOSER FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SOUL.

Plus, it comes over and on top of other awesome things this week:

  1. Getting a POSTCARD from Columbia. What the fuck, university, you're months away and already you are beautiful.
  2. Getting a letter from Columbia, which - as copy/pasted as I'm sure it is - is still so damned shiny, because, my god, it's like, this adult woman telling me she loves me and that she spoke for me during the admissions panel, and then she signs off in real pen, even managing to almost misspell "New York". I am in so much love it's crazy.
  3. It turns out that the best friend is, actually, alive! Tired sounding, but alive! My heart is more at peace than it has been in a while upon hearing that.
  4. Getting friended by [livejournal.com profile] yuletide people is like getting people-shaped presents in my inbox.
  5. Writing an insane number of fics for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide apparently generates an insane amount of feedback; this is something I can live with.
  6. Hopefully we will be upgrading to better internets soon! Faster surfing. I like muchly.


[edit] Omg. It is five minutes later and I am still looking at the pretty. The shoes. THE SHOES. And Tseng's VEST. And my god the creases, they look so real, I want to touch them. And then make them... creas-ier.

I seriously have been so fucking gifted with amazing friends and crazymadawesome fellow fandom people. Yuletide's an important season for this journal, since (looking back) I realise that my first venture into fic and fandom et al s'dated almost exactly a year ago from now. *g* I'd never have imagined that I'd meet so many insanely talented and beautiful human beings. Thank you, flist, for being who and what you all are. I LOVE YOU, and am so lucky to be blessed to know you.
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.
Inflicted upon the world by: [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx and [livejournal.com profile] karanguni

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: (RUFUS looks)


[livejournal.com profile] nasdack

The joint Shinra-Bunansa empire.

Entirely the fault of [livejournal.com profile] karanguni and [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx


It is the beginning of the end. From the original Balthier/Tseng and Tseng/Rufus madness comes an entire au!universe.

Posting begins very, very, very soon. 8D Watch the community for updates, or join the community for, um. Privileged access to things that aren't there yet? 8D 8D 8D 8D 8D
karanguni: (CLAIRE is amazed)
Just came home from some insane, intensive shopping. Mother says I don't have enough clothes. I say I have too much. I dislike most styles that are current! D: But I have pretty shoes, mm.

BUT NOW I AM HOME AND I SHALL SPEW FORTH THE INSANE AMOUNT OF TSENG/BALTHIER I HAVE BEEN THINKING OF TODAY. *types*
karanguni: (Alex KRAPANOS)
Dear Neglected Final Fantasy VII Readers on the flist:

This is my inner voice for Tseng speaking. After 2428 stories in which Tseng does nothing much other than, um, kick a lot of ass and/or have mildly disturbing flashbacks and/or stays quite firmly in his nice, mono-fandom spot, would you guys be interested in (I know I'm a total w00b and failure here) seeing his ass get sort of kicked in a Batman crossover?

Because, um, yeah. Tseng. In Gotham. Um. I'll be here. Holding up little signs that say "endorse the plotbunny". *WEEPS FOR FANDOM PURITY*

In other news )
karanguni: (TSENG smiles)
Um. This is a "drabble", because Veld says it's so. *BEAMS* There may be "fic" later tonight. God damn Turks.

Title: Honorifics
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, Veld. You can turn that comma into a slash, if you want.
Summary: Tseng tries to disinherit himself; Veld thinks he should be doing otherwise. He teaches Tseng to fence with words - in this language and that - because it will be a better blade than any Tseng will ever learn to wield.
Warnings: I don't think I will ever be comfortable counting this in any canon, because it rapes the Japanese language in an attempt to Make Stuff Up About Wutai. Sort of follows after Growing Pains. More wooby Tseng!

1115 words is a drabble; Tseng still has a lot of growing to do. \o\

'There are too many ways of getting around the deferential in this language,' Veld points out. 'How many ways would you tier the company if you spoke the right one instead?' )
karanguni: (TSENG smiles)
The beta-filter has seen this (with a few amendments since then): it's the first part of a longer fic that I don't have the time to write as a one shot. It's - just read it, okay? I'll buy you cookies if you do. Or something. 8D

Title: Restorations I
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, Rufus, Reeve, Wutai, Midgar, everyone.
Summary: And Shinra said, we are going to save the world, and then said, but let us start with restorations.
Warnings: First part of a multiparter - one or two more chapters planned. Canon AU. "What happens after Midgar". Gen, with slash when you squint. You may have to squint less in other chapters. Rufus Shinra is in the god damned house.

2410 words, and Rufus would like you to know that he is perfectly harmless, thank you.

They sent him into Wutai because it was the predictable thing to do, and these days it paid to do things predictably. )

[and random ad again:] Go forth, ye kind hearted people, I know you want to.

So, I'm doing everything but what I should be doing (studying, or writing). 8D A small, tiny icon batch, fuelled by my intense frustration at never having Tseng icons on hand. \o/

More here at [livejournal.com profile] shifgrethor!

Also: [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx is awesome. Awesome beyond awesome beyond awesome. Awesome like burning.

Title: Outward From Midgar
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Lucifer (comic)
Characters: Tseng, Lucifer
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Crossover. Midgar AU. Smashee-crashee of various real cultures. The Devil. Oh, and sex.
Summary: Sometimes you just got to get bored with life before you remember to start living it. Written for the roads_diverged challenge at IJ, theme: small town.

5141 words and the loosest ever interpretation of a theme. Oh, and the most desperate crossover ever, too! You really, really don't need to know Lucifer. At all.

The first impression it left on him was this: roads leading everywhere and nowhere, too much sky, too much land, too few people. )
karanguni: (RUFUS' clothes)
Title: Empery
Characters: Tseng; Veld cameo
Rating: Hard R (non-explicit sex, swearing)
Warnings: Written for roads_diverged. Massive AU. Massive culture abuse. Massive abuse in general.
Summary: He was taught that Wutai was the centre of the universe; he could not understand the empire stirring in the East until it was upon him, until it destroyed him, until it changed him, until it gave him empery.

6756 words and oh god this is my baby. Personal justification for Wutai versus Midgar in the original game, transplanted so that it makes sense. If there was one fic I'd beg my flist to read, this would be it.

They said: Empire is coming. By the time he understood what they meant, it was already too late. )

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.
