Finished Final Fantasy Tactics: The War Of The Lions. The verdict? THIS IS THE WAY. Beautifully retranslated (in spite of some weird choices in the new romanization), the animated cutscenes were great, the voice acting was good (even the BAD Prince of Persia managed to nail it in some lines), and the extra scenes were very smoothly integrated without disrupting any of the original storyline and, in fact, made it a lot more balanced. Characters didn't just fade into the non-speaking role background as soon as they joined up anymore! Throw in some Gideon Emery coming back for an encore and you really do have a great game that was well worth the arm and a leg the PSP cost. I am going to train up my guys and play on teh internets!

...Ramza's still had some issues with that one new guy, though. Otherwise known as: the Ramza and Mustadio Variety Hour, Episode 512. )

I liiiive.

Blah. This isn't getting any more finished the more I stare at it, and I can't remember exactly where I was going with it, and I just realized it might be nice to let people know that I am alive now that college has taken a break from KICKING MY ASS. So. Have a Nabradian morality tale.

For the endlessly Cool [ profile] fabulous_papaya. There will be antics in Old Archades at some point in the near future! But for now, have post antics with a little bit more of that ominous foreshadowing this kid seems to inspire. My computer ate this three times before it finally let me finish it, which probably means I've awakened some kind of ancient curse in the process. Just a general heads up.

FFXII. Ffamran and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day... )

Ah, guess I'm a day late for the BIG UNMASKING? Oh well. HARK! TIS I who wrote [ profile] yuletide story Gerda and the Snow Queen for [ profile] ave_eva. Which is rough in places that still make me wince, but overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and glad that my recipient enjoyed. ♥

Meanwhile, because my f-list is doing it and I wanna be one of the cool kids: New Years Request Meme. Standard flavor this time. You know how this goes: name a fandom/pairing/characters and I write you a story of dubious drabble status to the best of my ability provided said request does not destroy my brain.

FFXII. Random backstory. An excerpt from the thesis of art history major Tia Grenace, who thought that paintings from the Archadian Empire would be an easy grade...

I hope everyone had a good holiday! Mine was surprisingly fun. Got some fun scarves, a back massager, and my own PS2 holy crap. Also spent it with some very nice company in a very quiet little family party. Which are the best ones when done right. Also, recieved via [ profile] yuletide: this pretty awesome gem of a fic. Raising Morgan. Which is pretty much the Howl's Moving Castle fic I've been dying to read for ages.

Also, in keeping with a general fluffy feel (if lacking a bit in snow) have some more FFXII ficlets. This time the cute tragic marrieds:

Ashe. On the Naming of Queens. )

Rasler. On Occupational Hazards. )
moonsheen: (making gay porn of yoooou)
Yuletide is done! And so are finals! And there is freedom! And also ficbits, because I have been itching to do them for awhile. Final Fantasy XII. Pre-series. Spoilers for...uh, the Rozzarians totally workin' it?
