[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."

Blargh

I totally tried to write more of both TTYNKAP and Puppyverse, and my ficbrain gave me the middle finger. Hell, it gave me the middle finger trying to write necessary plot-type stuff for HC. XD;;;;

Anyway, I need to get back into writing, but since my ficbrain is being tetchy and not quite getting into the writing groove (everything I write feels vaguely off, y'know?), I'm putting up a challenge for one-comment fic. Anything Compilation of FF7 or anything in jou!canon is game--I figure I need to prime the pump a bit before I can get back into my big projects since I haven't written anything of note in months. ;_;

So, prompts? I'll write up to five. :D

1. Puppyverse: Cloud's birthday party.
2. TTYKNAP - Reno, cuddling
3. HC - How'd Zack get that bike again?
4. Middish!verse: Mama's matzahballs
5. Puppyverse - "Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?"

[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

[fic] Cooking With Zack

Title: Cooking With Zack
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7 (AC AU)
Rating: G
Word count: 1780ish
Summary: Well, someone has to cook when Tifa can't.
Author's Notes: This was a one-comment (in theory) b-day present for [info]chibirisuchan, and she asked me to post it on my journal as a fic so she could link to it. I (greatly) expanded this from the original, since I figured, "Hey, if I'm gonna post it, I'll do it right and fix some stuff and expand it a bit." It's now four pages. ^^;

And my language geekery comes out again, with Cloud lapsing into his native Nibelheim dialect for a bit. There's also a reason why I chose the kind of food mentioned in this; it's something I've played around with for puppyverse and will go into detail about later. *waves Overthinkers Club flag and grins an evil grin* Overthinkiners Unite! XD

This is a Harrow Children happy-ending!verse fic, btw, and takes place after the fic. ;)

Drabbles?

Hi, I'm BORED STUPID. I can't manage being upright for more than an hour at a stretch before I go "...lying down now" (yay, side effects) and need to be distracted, especially since the Magic 5% of common sense that saves me from being a complete idiot is telling me I need to stay home tomorrow (I went out to buy groceries, and it was a MISTAKE; I should have ordered another pizza and had the food come to me).

So! Because I can't manage anything that requires "upright" and all of my big fic projects require more thinking than me headachey brain (yay, side effects) can manage but I'm also, yeah, BORED STUPID, one comment drabbles! (I have a laptop, which is why I'm online at all--it goes into the bed with me. :D )

Give me a prompt and I'll write a one-comment drabble.* Any fandom or 'verse I've written for is OK (I'll even entertain crossovers XD ). It will ONLY be one comment, though, even if I have to beat it with a stick.

So, yeah. Give me something to amuse myself with. I will also cheerfully accept drabbles people write for me, because yeah, I am down for the count.

* Until I get tired and have to stop. Which may be at any moment.

Drabble One: Love Advice (FF7, TTYNKAP: Jie, Reno, Auntie Qian. Prompt: First heartbreak from love and Auntie Qian dispenses her advice on the matter) [LJ]
