Thagirion: What Is Inside [III] (pt 5)

Title: What is Inside
Series Title: Thagirion

Author: joudama

Fandom: FF7 (AU)
Status: 4/5
Rating: R
Word count: 25600
Summary/Prompt: Instead of waiting to breed new Ancients, Hojo decides to simply create a new one from Aerith and a terrorist who remembers more than she should.

A/N: Ahaha, I exist. It's been a rough few years, and I fell out of ficcing because I didn't really have time or the energy because first my job was sucking my soul away, then I changed jobs and had a two-hour commute each way, which killed my free time. But then I listened to Hamilton, and decided it was time to "write like I’m running out of time." That's how y'all got the end of TTYNKAP in one big burst, and why you're hopefully about to get the end of Thagirion as well.

This is for illumynare, who won my help_japan auction. :D



For the sake of brevity, I'm cutting out the extensive author's notes I actually wrote for this--if you are interested, I'll be posting them separately, as an Ultimata, the same as I did for The Things You Never Knew About People. :D

[fic] The Things You Never Knew About People: 潛龍 Qian Long [The Hidden Dragon]

Title: The Things You Never Knew About People - Qian Long [The Hidden Dragon]
Status: 12/14
Fandom: FF7
Word count: 2000
Summary: Time to find a hidden dragon.
A/N: And with this, the main body of TTYNKAP is done!  There are still two more sections, the epilogues...but the main part is done, done like dinner.  The first epilogue is done and should be soon, but the last one is only halfway done. Thank all y'all for sticking with me so far; we're coming down the homestretch now. :D
 
This title comes from a four-character compound that is ALSO the title of a song I really, really like: 潛龍勿用, "Don't Use the Hidden Dragon."  That basically means keep your strengths hidden (until it's the right time to use them.)

A/N: ...yeah, so, this is just a wee bit late, eh? Yeah. Also...this is a bit rough, since it's unbeta'd, and I'm sure there are places that need work or maybe don't work? Sorry...

On a writing note, I'm using a custom in China and Korea for Wutai, where even after marriage a woman keeps the name she was born with, and but her children take their father's names. ...You'll see. Also, I'm going to be posting another "Ultimania" author's notes for this to lj/ij/dreamwidth, because this chapter had to come out first.

Title: Puppy Chow 
Author: joudama 
Fandom: FF7:CC AU 
Rating:
Status: 3/8 
Summary: Puppies have to eat! 
A/N: *buries face in hands* This is all chibirisuchan's fault. Her and her plotcthulhus. *grump* And I've given up on trying to think of a real name for this series.  So it's officially Puppyverse. ^^;; And every title in the series will have some kind of 'dog' reference, because I'm a dork. XD;; 
This is a filler story; it's there more as set-up than anything really happening.  Thus...plot?  Whassat? XD;;; 
  
Also, chibirisuchan made recipes for the food mentioned here!  So if you want to try to cook any of the food from Zack's hometown, hee hee, you can

Snippits of WIP!

So, to show a bit of what I'm working on, and to show that, no, really, stuff is getting written, here are a few snippits from the last couple fic I've been tinkering away at.

Thagirion: Meet Dr. Laumbe. )

Why They Actually Do Get On: Yeah, so, no one likes 2 am phone calls. )

The Things You Never Knew About People (Shi Qu): Reno is a grass-brained hooligan. )

Harrow Children: They're after Jenova's head. )

The Yellow Farce: The Limping Doctor doesn't always limp. )

There, so those are bits and bobs from everything I'm currently working on. And yes, I am indeed working on both Harrow Children and TTYNKAP. Thagirion and some of my Sherlock stuff is ahead of it in my queue, but I am actively working on everything listed it.

Title: That Desolate, Arid Place
Series: Thagirion
Author: joudama
Fandom: FF7 (AU)
Status: 3/5
Rating: R
Word count: 11,100
Summary/Prompt: Instead of waiting to breed new Ancients, Hojo decides to simply create a new one from Aerith and a terrorist who remembers more than she should.
A/N: This is for illumynare, who won my help_japan auction. :D  She made an incredibly generous bid, and as someone actually living in Japan, I am extremely grateful.  Also, I'd ask that if you enjoyed this fic, to please consider donating to $5 or so to a charity.  It doesn't really matter which one, but it'd be a way for the spirit of help_japan--and all of the help_* auctions--to keep going.
 
For the sake of brevity, I'm cutting out the extensive author's notes I actually wrote for this--if you are interested, I'll be posting them separately, as an Ultimania. :D
 
Also, ahahaha, I didn't figure it would take so long to get another part out; I have been having a hell of a year - between work, studying, and injuries (including one that left me unable to type without pain for several months) & doctor trips (woo-hoo, rare collagen disorders~ asdfghjkl;:), I haven't had much time to work on it. Sowwy! ^^;;

And thanks to everyone who offered to beta; I just got too impatient after I did a read-through. ^^;;; Next time, I line betas up BEFORE I finish; I should know this by now. >XD;;;;;

[ficlet] And All Our Yesterdays Have Lighted Fools

Title: And All Our Yesterdays Have Lighted Fools
Fandom: FF7
'Verse: Harrowverse
Notes: This came from a drabble challenge I did on my livejournal/insanejournal/dreamwidth, and as I wrote it, I realized how important it was to the whole Harrowverse, which is why I'm posting it separately (and slightly expanded and cleaned up, heh). This takes place during the FF7 game timeline, and is pretty much one of those big, pivotal moments.

The original prompt challenge was: "Pick one of my fics or drabbles, or any other project you happen to know I am/was doing. Request a future or past scene set in that fic-verse with any characters you want." This specific request was "Harrow Children, past, Zack, Aerith, Sephiroth."

And remember, this is an AU, so the characters and a lot of situations are different - I write 'butterfly effect' AUs, and this is one of them. Everything will become clear in the next part, when I do more filling in. Promise. XD

Quick drabble challenge: Hojo edition.

It occurs to me that I've never written anything with Hojo.

Seeing as later in Puppyverse, which is going to be full-speed-ahead once I finish off at least one of my on-going fic, Hojo is going to be a major character, I need to get some Hojo practice in.

So...throw something Hojo at me. Anything (...famous last words, I know).

1. Paperwork and Plots - Hojo having very little patience for anything outside of science, like paperwork

2. Playing Your Cards Right - Hojo vs Gast back before Gast left Shinra/Hojo + his ideas of parenting (two prompts, which is why I let it go past the one-comment limit I gave myself.)

3. Getting the Knack of It - Hojo as a child and what brought him into the halls of science.

4. Valuable ShinRa Property - Hojo gives Seph The Talk.

5. The Perks of the Job - A young, up-and-coming-scientist Hojo being the utter heart throb of ShinRa.

Word count: 3,370ish
Prompt: Angeal/Genesis/Sephiroth: first impressions
Summary: Well, he promised he'd write.
A/N: This was written for areyougame. It was due on the 9th, but work went psycho crazy the last few weeks and I've been pulling a lot of overtime--my wallet will be happy, but I've been a little stressball. All that meant, alas, no writing time for me. ;_; There was a lot more I wanted to do with this, but it was already late, so... ;_;

[fic] Harrow Children: Part the Second [1/7]

Title: Harrow Children
Author: joudama
Fandom: FF7 (Advent Children AU)
Rating: R
Word count: 30,000, give or take
Status: 3/5 (prologue, three parts, epilogue)
Summary: The line between the quick and the dead is thin and blurred, and some fragments of memories live on past death.
Prompt: Zack lives!Advent Children AU.
A/N: Blame [info]chibirisuchan for this plotbunnicula. *hearts* Also sorry for the massive delay; blame it on me being pretty sick for most of 2009. I also apologize for any extreme goofiness with punctuation; I had to switch word processing programs, and there have been...issues.

If you haven't read the first part of this, this isn't going to make a lot of sense--this starts right where the first part left off, no recap or anything. ^^;; Also, if you haven't read the revised version--which takes into account new scenes from Advent Children Complete, go read that! It's much longer and more detailed! :D

Just as a warning, there's a couple of scenes that have bits of dialogue from Crisis Core and Final Fantasy 7. Unfortunately, yeah, I didn't use the official English translations for them. So they may not be exact, but the gist should be there. ^^;;

I also kind of recommend reading a short fic I did a while back, Shevirat ha-kelim, since some of the imagery I use in sections of this is based on that--or rather, based on the same Jewish mysticism I used in it (which gets explained in the the A/N section). It's one of the Ein Sof fics (a series I really need to get back to, oh god, I need more time). You don't need to read it, of course, but it'll add an extra layer of understanding to some things. ^^;;

And as for this chapter itself. yeah, this is, um, long. I kinda broke NeoOffice's stupid limit for "web view" while I was working on it (which led to me snapping and moving over to Bean. ARGH, but is it too much to ask for bloody Draft View? *stabbity*) It's, yeah. A wee bit lengthy.

And remember how I said in the author's notes to Part the First that this was all butterfly effect? Here is where it begins to deviate wildly! :D
