Eyes on Julia Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Another songfic, a sweet one about Julia giving up on her lost, true love and accepting a new one. It's short, but it's a small pearl.


Dream a Little Dream Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Taking "playing it both ways" to a whole new level... in a strangely cute way. Tifa is, and Aeris were in love with Cloud. And he can't forget the flower girl, even though he lives happily with the brunette. Good thing there's dreams, no? And a bit of reincarnation might add things up, but not in the perverted way.


Don't come into this Coffee Shop Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)This is another humorous FF-series crossover, this one taking a look on the villains from Kefka to Seymour trying to once and for all decide who's the most evil one. Of course, this means a lot of meaniness, Seph making use of the Masamune and all that jazz ;) Good stuff, too! Reader reviews of this fic.
Final Fantasy X – Suteki Da Ne
(THE scene)
Final Fantasy X (Weiila)Short and sweet about, that's right, THE scene in Final Fantasy X. Stars Yuna and Tidus. Short, sweet and romantic.


No Mercy Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Post-FF8, Seifer is fleeing his inner and outter demons, which in the form of outter ones are hot on his trail and has taken away the last two people who cared about him. A brief story about loss and catharsis, with good characterizations.
There's a bit of foul language, but nothing that doesn't fit the mood.

The Angel of the Lion

Songs of Yesterday
2 3
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Unfinished as of yet, but the author promises to fix it as soon as possible. So give it a try, it's a nice one!
In a world where memories are frail since GFs eat them for breakfast, keeping your head straight is rather important. But there are other dangers too, as the FF8 crew learns when Squall disappears and is found by Rinoa a few years later, his mind wiped blank of his earlier life. Picking up the pieces of the puzzle might prove very tricky.
To Love the Enemy
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)This is an AU (Alternate Universe) fic, based mainly on the idea that the old orphanage gang met each other again without the ravenhaired addition.
Cid recieves a job from General Caraway; he wants a resitant leader kidnapped - unharmed. For this job, the headmaster of Balamb Garden appoints the best he's got, but the leader of the Forest Owls prove to be a difficult prisoner. And it doesn't get simpler when she provides information about sinister plans woven in Galbadia.


Bitter Ash 1 2 Final Fantasy VII (Mazrim)Another fanfic about Tseng, also about his relationship to Aeris. Tseng is bitter because Aeris won't care about him, centered during the game, during the destruction of the Sector 7 Pillar and just before Tseng's death (hence the two parts).


Behind the Screen 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Shining Force (Mazrim) A very good, if incomplete, fanfic, the basic plot being that of "Shining Force." I have never played that game, but the characters that Archone sets forth come across as believable, complex characters; something that is rare and good to see in fanfiction. In addition, Archone is also very knowledgable of the technical aspects of combat, which makes "Behind the Screen" an enjoyable, as well as very realistic fanfic.
(finished 18/3 -03)
Choices Shining Force (Weiila)This is a spinoff from "Behind the Screen", following not the heroes but two of the villains in their struggle through the game. Lady Mishaela is fooled by Darksol to sacrifice both her and the man she loves, Kaine, to the dark side - unaware that it's a sin she did not need to commit. Through her eyes we then get to follow the war in short, with losses and the evil that infects her. And what happens to her even after death.
A compelling and well-written tale, with a few unusual themes driven to their edge. Now choose to read it, but children might consider not to. It's an evil witch telling the story after all.
But Thou MUST! Dragon Warrior (Weiila)Humoristic piece by Archone, you all know what to expect, right? Prepare to laugh...
The Dragon Warrior Nester banishes the dragon and saves the princess, as the legends have told and ballads have told. However, it might turn out that saving Gwaelin might not have been his wisest pick of heroic deeds, after all, considering how possessive the girl is...
Crystal Conundrums I: The Windcall Crystalis (Mazrim)The Windcall - The first installment of Archone's new series centering around the goings on in the game Crystalis. Written with his usual attention to detail and description, this story is quite cool. And Archone does a good, believable, interesting job fleshing out the storyline of Crystalis, which as I recall isn't all that fleshed out in the actual game, which is also cool. Just like playing Crystalis, but better!
Crystal Conundrums II: Flamekiss Crystalis (Mazrim)The second installment of Archone's new series centering around the goings on in the game Crystalis. The epic tale continues on, losing none of its potency or otherwise coolness from the first. It makes me glad that I don't play so many RPGs, so I can enjoy their stories in the form of actual written works of art, which tend to be better than they are in the forms of games. If you know what I mean. :P
Crystal Conundrums III: Iceheart Crystalis (Weiila)Ah, this is just getting better and better.
Gebrel continues his journey through the world, searching for answers and swords. In this part he meets one more wise man, one wise woman, a few very... determined females and Mesiah, a woman who's been sleeping in a cryochamber just as the hero.
Crystal Conundrums IV: Thunderstrike Crystalis (Weiila) :) In my view Crystal Conundrums is one of the best series we have in the archive. The fourth part of Gebrel's journey, and he finally gets a little part of his past cleaned up. It ends with a cliffhanger though, but don't let that stop you from reading this work of action, adventure, drama, romance and humor.
Crystal Conundrums V: Crystalis Crystalis (Weiila) And finally the last chapter of this excellent series.
In indescribable rage at the recent events Gebrel charges at the Draygonian empire to free the imprisoned Wise men, Azteca and Mesiah.
Send Archone an e-mail if you're interested in seeing an epilogue as well :)
Asina's Thoughts Other (Weiila)The first meeting between Gebrel and the third Wise "Man", seen through the eyes of Asina. A heartwarming little fic about the queen who makes everybody love her... and some sides of her not really seen in the fic, such as the one easily managing to tease Tornel until his ears burn. I'll say...
Scent of an Esper FF6 (Weiila)Christmastime in the world of Final Fantasy VI, after the end of the game. The children of Mobliz have been moved to Figaro castle where they can live safer and warmer, as well as under better care from not only Terra. But the children's "mama" has a bit of holiday trouble that the kids are and probably should be kept unaware of for quite a while longer. As another hero under Archone's care noticed, it's tough when two people fall in love with ya at the same time...
Glorious Eyes Faxanadu (Weiila)This is a short but warm fic from Archone, about the nameless hero in the classic RPG Faxanadu. The warrior stumbles into a bar, bitter over having had to kill an old friend. He meets a special someone in the middle of the depression however...
With a bit of suggestive themes, kids should stay off, but others should get reading by all means!
Interlude with a Vampire Romancing Saga III (Weiila)A Romancing Saga 3 quickie by the one and only Archone.
About the vampire Leonid of Podol, brooding and talking about his miserable afterlife. There is of course Archone's brand of humour, but there is also a sad scent about the whole story about a lonely man.
My dearest enemy Zelda I and II (Weiila)Archone adds another sweet 8-bit tale to our fine archives, this one combining the outcoming of the first two Legend of Zelda games for the Nes.
It's a great humorous fic about Link's trials as a king; two Zeldas fighting over him, the boring life in the castle, and Ganon tormenting his sleep. Well, for the last one... almost. Nothing more painful than being beaten in pool, actually...
Dunno about everybody else, but just the first dialogue between our hero and Ganon had me laughing loudly. :)
Golden Love, Golden Sorrow Zelda I and II (Weiila)The (second) sequel to "My Dearest Enemy" (see the author's note to see why there's no first sequel in our archives. You don't have to have read the missing story to follow in this one though).
Link continues to have troubles with his Zeldas, while Ganon gets a revolt in his teeth... uh... hands. A great story as usual from Archone, with a lot of soft humor and emotion.
This part would really fit better in the "Reality" section, but I wanted to keep the series in the same place.
Broken Hearts, Broken Dreams Zelda I and II (Weiila)The third (okay, fourth in all honesty but we STILL don't have that nr 1.5) and last story about Link's torments as the king of Hyrule. This story is gently wrapped up in a feeling of dull despair, but it will also dwelve into the deeper meaning of "true love", and I guarantee that it'll leave you smiling for a long time after you've finished it. Without meaning in the current life, perhaps "forwards" isn't the way to go?
Of Light and Love Final Fantasy V (Weiila)Another mildly humorous piece by Archone, though it's also quite sweet (if a little twisted, perhaps. Hehehe... but it's too dang good to really bother) and tender. And deals with a plot normally only used for tragedies and dramas. A love triangle.
Faris is in love with Butz. Lenna is also in love with Butz. And when both of them confront him on the same evening, the travelling hero has to face that his heart belongs to each one. But perhaps, with a bit of sisterly love and girl talk, there can be a solution that makes all three happy...
Superb characterizations, especially the parts with Faris' pirate life situation are splendid.
Oedipal Oratory Final Fantasy VII (Mazrim) Not so much a fanfic as an interlude in the action of Final Fantasy VII, Oedipal Oratory effectively captures the relationship between Jenova and Sephiroth, and what each person feels in it. Sephiroth's love for Jenova, as well as Jenova's oddly mechanical way of thinking are at once insightful and chilling. A short read, but quite powerful, as with most of Archone's works. A very cool fanfic indeed.
The Three Companioneers Ultima VI (Mazrim) Yet another Archone fanfic, this one centered around a less-known (somewhat) PC RPG, Ultima VI. Three of the secondary characters, Dupre, Iolo, and Shamino, are the protagonists of this very epic short story. Reminiscent of broad swashbuckling tales like "The Three Musketeers," this story has a humorous premise, fights on rooftops, beautiful women, and a general nonchalance to the heroes that makes this fanfic very cool. And it's comparatively short, so you don't have to set aside an entire afternoon reading it like some fanfics in this archive. :)


Gunblade Origins: The Legend of Renzokuken Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The story of Squall and Seifer's gunblade training. Under master Shin, the two cadets are pressed to the limits against each other to learn the ancient art of their weapon of choice. There are a couple of truly beautiful gunblade duels in this one, definitely worth a look.

Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Not your everyday FF8 story, this is a fantastic epic about the dire and drawn-out consequences of a simple misunderstanding. I also guarantee that you'll be about to fall off your chair when Squall is forced to socialize with an elderly woman with an interest...
You probably won't be able to stop reading once you start, so make sure you have time :)
Crimson Lies
2 3 4 5 6 7
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A fantastic epic by Ashbear, despite its length not spanning over more than a week of action.
Ellone was killed in an attack against Garden, and following the events of that event Rinoa fled from her friends and disappeared. Now she is hunted down by the entire world, claimed to have gone mad and killed president Laguna's adopted daughter. And leading the hunt is Squall, until a certain blond induvidual shows up with some revolutionary new tidbits...
Relationships will start, die, be reborn and die again, all by just one word, one sentence said or unsaid at the wrong moment while the group of warriors fight against the world and the horrifying visions that plague them in their dreams. Undoubtely one of the best fics in the archive!
Dancing in Time
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1011 12 13 14 1516
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Certain occasions force Squall to be the talking one of him and Rinoa, which is of course quite a strain for him. Of the mistakes of a headmaster, fear of spiders and lacking control of sorceress powers.
Very tender and sweet about the relationship of the two and their attempts to find a safe ground they can share, with bits of humor spread throughout the story. And people walking into the room at the worst times, all the time...
Each chapter is a story within itself with no real bonds to the last, even though they are connected by time.
Knight of Sunset Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Ashbear presents a very sweet lil' romance story. A cute fic about Quistis relaxing on the beach in a sunset, when a familiar fellow decides to disturb her lonely peace. A gentle plot without any villains or action - if you don't count Seifer throwing Quistis into the ocean - with humor and cuteness makes a truly lovely story.
Place in this World Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Okay, so I guess we all know that Rinoa isn't the most popular heroine out there, seeing her rather childish acting at times, and the romance with Squall seeming almost unnatural to the ones watching. However, in this fic both of them get to tell us their honest thoughts on the whole situation adn what lead up to their relationship. Interesting and nice character study.

About the Authors
Halloweiner Story Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A comedy "horror" story by the Copious Couple, on par with their (you know you love it!) "Welcome to the Balamb Garden Network". Ultimecia is back and ready for revenge... but time itself is obviously against her. ^^;; Due to technical difficulties you only get this little teaser for now. Sowwy.
Somewhere in Between
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 2021
Final Fantasy VIII Heroes don't come too late, that's a wellknown fact and utter truth.
But what happens when they do fail?
Squall couldn't stop the sealing of Rinoa, and seven years have passed since the war against Ultimecia. The Lion has pushed himself in all ways possible to forget the Angel. Even getting himself a new love, spending sad days and nights full of nightmares in Trabia.
But then Quistis gets a call in the middle of the night; Rinoa is being unsealed.
A fantastic (if unfinished) story written by two skillful authors.
Welcome to the Balamb Garden Network Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Normally I draw a symbol against evil forces when seeing a "chatroom fic" since they're overall just to be branded free of plot. This one however is simply too hilarious to brush away. Insanity galore as the FF8 gang (including pets) have a less than normal conversation over a chat. Includes the strangest nicknames you'll (hopefully) see.
And lets not forget the fact that Squall towards the end shows tendencies well known in the RPGC chatroom.
Yes, it's a text file. After all, it's a chatlog.

Auron Belmont
Knights Bleed Red and Blue Suikoden II (Weiila)A brief tale of the pains on the battle field and those of loosing a dear friend. The helplessness and horror of the characters is excellently portrayed, though the story isn't a novel my heart ached for the people on the muddy battlefield.

Final Fantasy VIII (TD)In every life, there is everlasting misery weighing you down. Yet within each misery, there is joy. Want to know the whole thing? Read!

Bounty Hunter Raesune

Tales of Destiny II - Out from the unknown Tales of Destiny II The beginning of a sweet little humorous Tales of Destiny 2 fic (our first, whoo!). I have a feeling thisngs will get a bit complicated during the journey ahead with this set of whacky, jealous and paranoid heroes...

Brett Ultimus
Ogrebattle: March of the Black Queen Chapter 1
What the title says! ;) (Weiila)A novelization of Ogre Battle; March of the Dark Queen, and a promising one. It begins with betrayal of the king and quickly continues to the uprising of rebels. Very humoristic at some points as well, a truly sweet fic :)


Bloody Claws Final Fantasy VII (Mazrim)A violent fanfic taking place in the Shinra mansion before the game of FFVII takes place, centered around Vincent. Some graphic scenes, overall pretty good writing though.

About the Author

Melchiah's Saga Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The tale of a special unit Galbadian soldier who tries to keep a group of SeeDs away from the occupied Winhill, which works really well until the commander himself steps out, pissed as heck at mr. Galbadian.
After waking up from the coma, Melchia recieves new orders from general Caraway.
Really nice story, another good example of how original characters can be the leading characters in a fic without falling over on the dreaded Mary Sue-side.

Author's Note
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Fantastically well written and gripping Final Fantasy 8 drama, action and suspense merged with philosophical interpretions mixed with sparkles of humor. Don't expect very much of the latter though as this is a very dramatical tale that takes a look at the darker sides of human nature; fear, conspiracies and most importantly conquest of new areas.
Squall and co. are in Deling in peacetalks with the goverment, meeting a strange man named Scott. His existance in the FF8 world isn't natural, but at least he isn't trying to cause trouble. Those who come after him, on the other hand...
And if that wasn't enough, the intruders are breaking the laws of the multiverse by crossing the walls of dimensions.

Cat Alex

The at Times Tumultuous and Arduous Trials of Baralai and Seymel
(THE scene)
Final Fantasy X (Weiila)(Weiila)An interesting story with a Romeo and Juliet theme, in which Baralai of New Yevon finds himself in a rather complicated relationship with a woman named Seymel, of the Youth League. The political complications are severe for both sides, as very few look kindly on such an union.
And I dunno about you, but I love the title of this one.

Cats eye

All I Wanna do is make love to you Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A short but touching songfic. Rinoa flees from Squall after an argument, and driving along the road she sees an old friend standing in the rain. There's nothing graphic to see and the language is clean so don't get any strange ideas about this sweet little thing.
Decisions Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Another dark fic, this one concerning Quistis life before she joined SeeD. Or rather, fled to Garden from her adoptive family with an alcoholic father and psycologically weak mother.
The Other side of Nothing Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The start of an alternate universe fic. Warning; VERY dark, so if you don't like that you better stay off this one.
The outcome of the Sorceress war wasn't the best for the world in general. Galbadia now has all the wealth, Esthar is silent and the Centras are nearly gone. Trabia and Balamb are stuck in the back, filled with desperate people trying to survive in the spoils.
Overdue Goodbye Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Once again a songfic (Cats eye is good at these!), This one is set five years after the battle with Ultimecia. Rinoa has left Garden since she couldn't live as a SeeD, and she's been asking Squall to come with her for the last two years. He has to make a decision, and it's not easy to say good-bye.
Papa Don't Preach Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Songfic again, this one filled with a revolting feeling. Rinoa has to tell her father something, but he won't be happy to hear it. Still, she's not left hanging with her news. A strong and sweet piece.
Truly Madly Deeply Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The sequel to Papa Don't Preach. Well, Squall asked the question. Rinoa waits with the answer though... and that's all I'm gonna say, you'll have to read it to find out! ;)
Why Won't the World Stop? 2 Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Squall comes back from a job in Dollet, but he was in an accident. His head was damaged and he can't remember anything of his past life, locked in the mind of a child at best. Rinoa has to cope with him pretty much on her own as the other SeeDs goes on with their own lives. Only Zell and Edea are willing to help out. But slowly, Squall begins to remember.

Castlevania (Weiila)Here we have a fic for Castlevania - Legacy of Darkness. This epic tale starts with Raziel (Cornell) and his sister coming back from their battle against Dracula, whom they fought since the latest Belmont still was too young to handle a whip at the time. It then goes on with Reinhardt of the Belmont family as a grown man sets off together with his friends Chanaur and Carrie. The story is built up around the battle against darkness, but centers on the shyly spiring love between Carrie and Chanaur.
A Castlevania Christmas Castlevania (Weiila)A tender story from the Dark Legacy world. Not even in the land plagued by Dracula is the times always dark and evil. There was a time between the fights and suffering, where the families still were whole... at least, most of them.
Very nicely done indeed with the past and future heroes celebrating Christmas!


The Dark Ages Legend Of Zelda (Weiila)After his long journey, Link returns to Hyrule where his friends are waiting for him. But a hero's job is never done, of course. The peace is only brief, and they we're off on an adventure again. Poor little Hylian...
Dragons and Demons Breath of Fire II (Weiila)Ryu finds himself thrown into the prison of Wyndia, lost, dazed and accused of murdering innocent people. With the new addition Trenity in the gang of heroes, he dives into battle against the mysterious fella' Damine.
From Fear to Hope
Breath of Fire II/III (Weiila)This is yet another Breath of Fire fic by Chris-Chris, this one a bit of a crossover however. It's officially set in the world of Breath of Fire 3, but the two earlier games will be mentioned and tied into the story. The third generation of heroes thought they would have some time off, but that's just something they can forget, because an ancient evil is awakening below the body of a warrior who turned himself into a dragon to keep the evil sealed. And while they do, there's still room for a bit of romance.
I'm never going to get drunk again... Zelda (Weiila)Aye. This fic offers yet another reason to stay clear of having to speak out the title.
Link meets an old friend and they decide to take a break at the nearest bar. This turns out to maybe not be the best idea our pointy-haired hero ever got.
Yet so Far Away Zelda (Weiila)A cute lil' fic about Link wondering about his life and what to do with it, when he meets a bitter wandering swordsman named Vincent who is searching for the Hero of Time in order to get strong enough to get revenge on a monster he's been hunting. Redemption can be found in the art of... fishing?

Chun Li
Angel of Mine Final Fantasy VII (Mazrim)A short, sweet fanfic about Tseng and his love for Aeris. Very emotional at times, with very descriptive imagery and elegant wording.

Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)Well, the title pretty much... says it all :) If you like really weird humor, this is a fic for you. I suppose all the characters involved can be grateful of is that Kefka isn't around anymore...
There are two versions of part 2, but they are quite different from each other so I left both of them in. :) Hilarious. Reader reviews of this fic.
8th March. Changed the author to the real ones. Credits added.


Jerry Springer FF8 Style Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Funkiest pen-name as of yet, I dare say... but in any case...
Jerry Springer and relationships just doesn't mix well, I'm sure we all can agree on that. He's gonna need a lot of guards if he aims at sorting anything related to FFVIII out though, this just might be more than the talkshow can chew off...
Kiss Me Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Though they are rare, there are still some more good song fics out there, apparently. I have surely said it before, but I really think that if you make a songfic, make it a LOT more story than song, as this one is another good example off.
A cute romance story spanning two generations of Leonhearts, accompanied by an occasional quote from Six Pence None The Richer.

Creepy Fellow

Until the End Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Seifer recieves a letter from his old friends and "enemies", setting him off into a rather painful reflection of his actions. It's a short but very well-written piece, and you'll find yourself sucked into Seifer's thoughts as he goes through the list of senders of the mail.

Darkness Beckons

The God's Other Half Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A highlevel SeeD by the name Aidin stumbles back to Garden from a sort of successful mission. He got the job done, though there is more trouble on the rise. Dragons are starting to act up, and that includes the one currently residing in Selphie's mind as well. Bahamut and he's brothers seem to be up to something. And there's a strange sorceress showing up in Squall's dreams, who demands that he becomes her knight.

2 3 Epilogue
Table of Contents
Chrono Trigger/Cross (Weiila)A superb crossover between Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, attempting to close some of the plotholes in the latter. It mostly follows Magus and Lucca as they strive to protect what is left after Guardia falls to Porre, doing everything they can and more than they should have to do in order to stop Lynx from aquiring the Frozen Flame. It is a rather dark story, but also carrying a lot of hope.


I, Garland, Will Knock You All Down Final Fantasy I (Weiila)Final Fantasy I deserves more attention I tell you, there's so much in there to poke at! Even the most famous villain's line in history of RPGs has a long way to go before it has been done to death, if you ask me. Especially if there'll still be fics like this, with a lot of humor, action, and an ending that will have you go "... WHAT?!"
It's got it all, peeps!

Deth Star Apocalypse

A Time of Miracles Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)Not made in time for the special Christmas update, but here now for your enjoyment.
A heartwarming tale about what the characters of Final Fantasy Tactics have done after the game, told through the viewpoint of Agrais one lonely Christmas eve. Friends long gone, not seen in a while are missed, but somebody might be considering leaving her a christmas present at least.

Devine Dragon Slayer

Chester's Loss Tales of Phantasia (Weiila)This is a short, touching piece set in the world of Tales of Phantasia (woo! Another one!). It's told from Chester's perspective as he wanders through the remains of Totus village after it was raided by the games first evildoers, and his grief becomes very real.
It's Not Easy to be Me Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Magus looks back on his life and ponders his current situation, and what the future might bring. On the brink of another time gate, he hesitates for a brief moment to remember what he's trying to accomplish and what he has already done - and what the person at the end of the long road would think of him.

About the author

The Coming of Avoozl Quest for Glory IV (Mazrim)A Quest for Glory 4 (!!) fanfic written in an odd, yet very cool archaic-sounding mein written as the Hero's (a cool archaic legend name, I guess :) ) journal, talking about his journey to find Avoozl...I've never played the game, so at times I don't really understand, but it's a cool fanfic nonetheless.
After the Evil Quest for Glory IV Another Quest for Glory 4 fic by Gallo ^_^ This one taking a look on the aftermath of the game, when the hero attempts to pick up the pieces and get a normal life. It might not be actionpacked, however there is quite a few humorous moments and the plot is interesting. A truly nice read.
Blood Reign Blood Omen (Weiila)A Blood Omen fanfic. That it's an RPG is borderline, but those who have played it voted it into the archives, so here it is in all it's... ehm... bloody and messy glory. Hey, what do you expect when Galloway goes back to his horror roots?
The nobleman Kain finds himself murdered... and after death chained between two pillars in a really warm place. Ain't that just peachy? Well, he soon gets out, with a little help from a necromancer. Hello, have you ever heard of them, Kain dear? When they say they'll help you for a price it might be smart to ask WHAT the price is before agreeing...
The Clock Tower Clock Tower (Mazrim)A Clock Tower (again, !!) fanfic, written by the one and only d Galloway, this fic is a written account from the eyes of Jennifer, a character in the popular game Clock Tower, about the events of said game. d Galloway's writing style is quite creepy, not so much building to a crescendo of total weird madness, only to dissipate harmlessly at the end, as creating an aura to settle disconcertingly over the entire book, like an autumn mist...god damn, I'm starting to sound like a literary critic. The point is, it's a creepily awesome fanfic. :P
Reader reviews of this fic.
The Birth of the evil Clock Tower (Weiila)Before, during and after Clock Tower. Each chapter carries the view of a different character from the game, and their thoughts, feelings and placement. No real climax as the major action of the game is left out of the fic, but quite a fascinating piece as you get to see the mechanical, cold thinking of the evil ones and the fears and despair of the heroes as they try to cope with their experiences.
Revenge Clock Tower (Weiila)A brief story, a monologue by one of the characters of Clock Tower. I have heard this game is scary but whoa! Now I don't know if I ever will dare to play it. But that's me ;) For everyone else with a healthy inheritage of bravery, there is a creepy fanfic here waiting to be read and a horror RPG to be played!
Deus Ex Machina Deus Ex (Weiila)Once again Galloway returns to the horror genre, novelazing the less known game Deus Ex. A young couple in love are enjoying (more or less, that is) a tour of the Statue of Liberty, when explotions tears the giant statue apart. The lady of the two, Sara, barely escapes, but her boyfriend Ted is carried off by strange figures...
Deus Ex: The Interactive Fanfic Deus Ex (Weiila)This is an experiment by Galloway; he writes the story but halts at certain points to let the readers vote on what should happen next. You can follow the story between the updates and vote on it in this thread on the message board.
It's growing to be a novelization of the game Deus Ex, from JC's point of view. Now help him finish his mission!
Did I Make the Right Choice? Deus Ex (Weiila)Another Deus Ex fic, this one taking place after all the action. The hero wonders if he did the right thing, when all's said and done. Deus Ex fans probably knows what he's talking about better than I do, but even so I find it a good read since Galloway somehow manage to keep the reader enlightened enough to follow even if s/he haven't played the game.
The Fall of Ichirou Sweet Home (Mazrim)A fanfic set in the world of the game "Sweet Home," which I had scarcely heard about before reading it. It's set before the game, in the form of Ichirou's diary, detailing how his wife, Mamiya, went insane over the death of her child. It's short, sweet, and you don't need to have played the game to read it. After reading it, you should check out the Sweet Home shrine, made by Hiryuu, just to get some background information about what you just read. Quite touching, a bit on the dark side, so I love it! :)
The Death of Ichirou Sweet Home (Weiila)*is hiding under the sofa* Eep! My poor nerves o' weak! Scary... but in a very good way. If you've already read d_Galloway's horror fics you know the fine quality, if you haven't read them yet... what took ye so long? ;) I dunno, do this really need a summary? The title gives a very fine wink, after all... :)
The Sacrifice of Ichirou Sweet Home (Weiila)And the grand, bloody and horrific finale of Ichirou's sad tale. But on the other hand, he's a zombie so who knows when Galloway is in the works... thumbs up... if the judge could find his other thumb, that is...
Tales of the Fallen Sweet Home (Weiila)Well waddaya know, Galloway has resurrected Sweet Home! Well... if that's the word. Fallen, as it says...
Some heroes doesn't make it though, in case you didn't know...
The Final Fantasy break room Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)d_Galloway's first shot at the humor genre brings us a hilarious look at what all the FF-characters do in their spare time. From FF1 to FF10, this is an allout relaxing experience. And if you believe that last thing you should go and vote Kefka for president ;D This is as crazy and funny as it can get.
The Final Fantasy break room 2 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)Ah, here we go again... new and improved break room, new camera, new... situations... darn that Black Mage for using poor cute little Vivi's abilites for his dark cause... evil I say!! As hilarious as the first one, so get reading :)
The Final Fantasy break room 3 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)The series o' FF-madness continue... now with more explosions, chicks, FF1 ninjas and Starcraft!
The Final Fantasy break room 4 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)And enter ze villains with long swords and irritating laughter... plus, a mysterious new nemesis delivers his first threath of death...
The Final Fantasy break room 5 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)Err... the mysterios enemy Mox attacks! Who is he? What does he want? And... what the heck, Galloway?!? Expect a very surprising plot twist in this one... OK, so it isn't pure FF but the episodes need to be kept at the same place to make the series make sense, don'tcha think?
The Final Fantasy break room 6 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)And now ph33r the skills of Edward, Black Mage, Zell and the society of irritated fanficauthors. ;)
The Final Fantasy break room 7: Attack of the Dark Fics Misc (Weiila)As we all know Gallo is really our current horror fic master but has recently turned to comedy, and in this one they come back -with another, certain charater whom shall not be named here- to get him back, preferably dead not alive! Of course, Sephiroth, Kefka, Black Mage Edward and all the other brave heroes (...) come to save the day! Oh God...
The Final Fantasy break room 8 Misc (Weiila)Will it ever end? Hopefully not... :) Will Magus ever learn? Hopefully, but not expectable...
Final Fantasy: Solid Final Fantasy crossover An actionpacked fic, with over ten induvidual characters! Live the drama of a lost love, a seemingly hopeless mission, bravery of one hero and his companions as they seek to free the innocent Frozen Continent from insane terrorist! Oh yeah... and some hostages.
Forced into yet another mission, the hero Cloud must follow the commands of Colonel Steiner whether he likes it or not. With the help of Relm and Tifa, will he prevail?
Use almost over five different vehicles and weapons to free the continent!
Get ready to face the danger of the millenia!
Two free blocks on your memory card(tm) required for saving your game.
Final Fantasy: Solid Part 2 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)Updated again. On his way through the terrorist base Cloud manages to get himself caught. Hit the square button like there was no tomorrow!
Final Fantasy: Solid Part 3 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)The grand finale approaches! It'll take stealth, bravery, one heck of a lot of codec calls and jokes to win!
Godcrapit, can't Kuja just die like a normal villain!? No wait, he does die like a generic villain...
Final Fantasy: Solid 2 Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)Here we go again! You need the original story to play the second indignation... uh... ignoram... ignition!
Final Fantasy: Solid 2 part 2
3 4
Final Fantasy crossover (Weiila)And the epic tale of bravery goes on! Cloud survives the tanker... or so you thought, perhaps? Something is definitely foul here (like we didn't see that coming...). (finished 14/8)
The King of Fanfiction RPGC (Weiila)Yes, it's really this bad. That darn Galloway has brought the Queen of Fanfiction into a bedridden state with all his chasing after me to update more. He's evil. EVIL I SAY!
Well, anyway... with the Queen out, there's a need for a King to take over. One problem, who would that be? A contest must be held, calling all the male authors from all over in a whacky contest... and some females too, for some reason.
... and who the heck made Magus chancellor?!
Defenders of Fanfiction RPGC (Weiila)Defenders of Fanfiction is the sequel to The King of Fanfiction, in which various authors joined a treasure hunt to determine who should be King... er... janitor of the Castle of Fanfiction. Life's been relatively peaceful for a while (how that works with Magus as a chancellor, I'll never understand though), when suddenly the Treasures of Fanfiction are stolen. This cannot be tolerated of course. Let's all get off our drunk and ping-pong playing behinds and show those thieves what happens when they mess with THESE authors!
The Mox Saga
Characters an'
Misc (Weiila)Remember Mox from the Final Fantasy breakroom? Well, seems that one was fake (we all knew that...) and here the REAL one shows up. The series stars several other people from the RPGC community and will tie in with the Final Fantasybreak room series :D Reader reviews of this fic.
The Final Fantasy break room 9 Misc (Weiila)(Yes it's supposed to be placed here, you'll understand when you read The Mox Saga)
The Mox Saga continuance Misc (Weiila)We now return to our other main program...
Return of The Mox Saga continuance Misc (Weiila)Well you see... something went wrong with the recordings of scene 14-16, it's all explained in the revised episode 16. But you'll never notice, I swear! *tries to smile honestly*
The Final Fantasy break room 10 Misc (Weiila)Just when you thought you were safe, here we go again!
The Moxsaga continuance strikes again! Misc (Weiila)The grand finale is near! Hold on tight as Gallo leads the troop towards slaughtering of evil and DBZ. Except for Piccolo, of course.
SUPER-HAPPY-BIG-BIG ff breakroom! Misc (Weiila)Extra long episode! A new villain is in the hoods, turning the characters to babies! Also, you'll have some hints in this...
The Final Fantasy Breakroom 12 Misc (Weiila)... and even more in this one, about this new evil who claims that his powers is greater than Mox'. O_O Hold on tight, a new story with RPGC fellows is on its way. Otherwise than that, in this part is a peek at a few of the heroes as children. Oh golly...
The Final Fantasy Breakroom Character bios Misc (Weiila)I was wondering when we'd get a load of this ;) Raw, but truthful character descriptions... at least from the Break Room's character world.
The Daemon Saga Prelude
Misc (Weiila)Another RPGC/Final Fantasy/other crossover by Galloway, the sequel to the Mox saga. This is promised to be darker and a bit more violent than the other crossovers, but there's still humour.
Trying to figure out who the mysterius two persons he saw during the MERC mission, Galloway finds some interesting facts...
... Are you staring at my leather outfit? *cracks whip*
Daemon saga part 2 Misc (Weiila)What's to say besides OW! when Gallo slaughters DBZ even more and brings in original characters?
Daemon saga characters Misc (Weiila)Character bios! What did you expect, the Nobel prize? :)
The Final Fantasy Breakroom Halloween! Misc (Weiila)Halloween special and Daemon saga interlude! ^_^ Not very scary, but it's about Halloween, so...
Daemon saga part 3 Misc (Weiila)Do the fusion trick, do the fusion trick agaaain... and don't mess with my original characters, they will bite your head off... Meliah and Gemini are kidnapped but makes a grand escape, Gallo and Neo fights evil like animals, Magus is strangely pretty much absent and a man with a hook joins the battle! Whooo!
Daemon saga part 4 Misc (Weiila)The third chunk of the tale turned out really small (though there's a new episode in it), but I decided to make a new part for the special episodes... see the heroes split up in four groups to get to Daemon, each group's episode being written by the author leading it! (Finished 2/12)
The Naar Saga
2 3 4 5
Misc (Weiila)Here we go again, another saga by Gallo! ^_^... ^_~... ~_o... o_O... not AGAIN! Galloway, I have one word for you! Crack! Well... I would have that to say, if it wasn't for the fact that children aren't allowed to play with dangerous things like whips... Falchin comes back, babbling something about his father's curse and hinting about some new evil. Galloway is having omnious dreams about getting mutilated alive and there's doubtlessly madness ahead. You know, the usual stuff...
The Movie Saga: The Lost General Misc (Weiila)Naar might be defeated, but one of his generals remain. Darkmare is his name, rotting is his game... as well as tentacles, which means that if he doesn't keep away from the female characters I will have to... run screaming.
The Origin Saga
2 3
Misc (Weiila)What, did you think Gallo would leave us hanging? Nope, not this writing psychopath! Another Saga begins, and in this one there'll be timetravel (AAH!), dimension hopping (AAAAAAHHHHH!!), Mox popping in all the time (AAAARGHH!!!) and some new family ties (would scream again, but I have collapsed due to lack of oxygen from all the shrieking).
Damn, there are too many Galloways here... RUN!
The Christmas Saga, Chapter 2 RPGC (Weiila)Due to Sin being in charge of the Christmas celebration at RPGC, a chunk of the community members decide that it might be safer and more peaceful to spend the holidays over at an old hotel. The phamplet claims that you're not allowed to have read "The Shining" to be the there, though...
Includes Santa's evil Twin Half-brother, beer, obscure references, people trying to destroy the internet, that bloody shrinking, old enemies returning, new enemies showing up, children, chibifications, beer and zombies. Lots of beer. And even more zombies.
The Reaver Saga RPGC (Weiila)Another saga is starting before the last one even has ended! Whee!
This story takes place after The Christmas Saga, in which Galloway ended up (as you should already know, my pretties) with the sword Reaver (from the Legacy of Kain series) on his arm. Some higher-ups however decide that it's better to have it removed, and Galloway and crew sets off to find a way to have this fixed.
Well, this shouldn't lead to having to save the world after having being turned into kids again, right? RIGHT?!
The Final Fantasy Breakroom Christmas special Misc (Weiila)Well, it's that time of the year... the time of socks over the fireplace, being together with family, stuffing yourself with too much food... and of course save Christmas!! And with a break room filled with bored heroes, is there anything better than to go out and do your holiday job?
This spells disaster...
The Final Fantasy Breakroom 15 Final fantasy Crossover (Weiila)Relive the classics, the breakroom is alive again! Whoo!
In this episode, three mysterious figures show up and start messing around with the Square HQ as well as mystic portals and time. Of course, the FF characters + the author and friends won't just sit and watch all this occur! Oh no, not us!
Though the participants might start wishing they had...
The Future RPGC (title pending) RPGC (Weiila)When they said that some people shouldn't be allowed to breed, they (whoever they were) didn't know how right they were. 25 years into the future, and RPGC is still going strong!
... still standing.
... most of us are still alive. And married. And Heaven save us all, we've all become parents!
Another humorous story by our very own Galloway, which starts out with our resident valkyrie Val deciding that she wants all of her husbands killed, and throws out her son Ryelandt to get the job done. After recovering from the stabs she gave him for good measure, he runs into Galloway and his son Maria.
I want the special rescue squad alert and ready at any given second!
The Gathering Demon de Laplace (Weiila)A Demon de Laplace fic (Gallo sure plays some non-mainstream games, w00t for that ;)). May the characters assemble at the master's (read author's) command. You have no choice and you know it, guys...
Richard and Joanna Demon de Laplace (Weiila)A return of horror for Galloway, this is quite a nerve-shaker about a love refusing to die even if the one carrying this love is killed. Pictures how hate can break a man's soul completely. Demon de Laplace fic.
Chrono Trigger (Weiila)A new story by Galloway, this one a Chrono Trigger tale starting with the destruction of Zeal. A young boy is absorbed by Lavos, who plan to turn him and other unfortunate humans into his spawns. However, this one boy might be meant for another role in the world...
How Love is Lost Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)The true and tragic story behind the reason of all Aeris Resurrection Fics; their origin as in why people do write them at all. About the evil economic presidents and commitees that will regret certain choices.
Memories of Odio Live a Live (Weiila)Well would you look at that, ANOTHER Live a Live fic! And it's memoirs... by Odio, the great demon himself. A look at the human evolution through game, history and the eyes of an evil force bent on destruction.

D. Krispin

Twilight of Fate Chrono Trigger/Cross (Weiila)Serge lives a quiet, peaceful life in the village of Arni, enjoying his simple existance to the fullest. But strange dreams are tugging at his mind and one night a mysterious fellow shows up in the youngster's room, claiming that his name is Crono and that he needs Serge's help. Their second encounter gets the young man into quite a situation. Familiar faces from both Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross unite to battle the empire of Porre...
A growing epic with fabulous descriptions and great characterizations, though Schala seems to have grown rather quirky during her time off princesshood.

Doc Shinryuu
About the Author
Special Interview

Characters Final Fantasy Tactics Author's notes and the characters' stats.
Swords for hire:
Will of Elder Topa
Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)This is a sweet lil' Final Fantasy Tactics fic (our first for that game, too. W00t for Doc!) by Doc Shinryuu, well known from the mailbag :)
Final Fantasy Tactics is yet another game I've never gotten my hands on, but I still find it quite enjoyable and humorous so those who know the story behind it all should find it even better ;) Ramza's friends that star in this story (eventually series) are short on money and buy a map for a mine...
Master Math Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)And they're back! Time for the calculators to clash... they don't only fight, they can count too! If you're a Final Fantasy Tactics-character, that's kinda useful ya know...
Trap of the Bandits Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)The third tale of the Final Fantasy Tactics troupe is here! This time they take on a group of bandits stealing beer... eh, yeah. Also muses a bit on the subject of summons taking a tad bit too long...
Swords for Hire Part 4 Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)The fourth installment in Doc's Final Fantasy Tactics comedy series. This time the group of mercenaries are hired to guard a lonely cart. The driver looks strangely familiar though... and what's the cargo?
It's a hard life when paper clips can be deadly, isn't it? >:)
Swords for Hire 5:
Challenge of Zero
Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)A thief with a familiar name will learn not to anger white mages, especially not if they use really strange weapons. There are also cameos from one of the funniest fantasy series to ever exist ^_^ The funniest Swords for hire as of yet in my humble opinion.
Swords for Hire Interlude: Interview of the author Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)An addition to Doc's author interview, where the author uh... "allows" the characters to ask him questions. Quite funny ^_^

About the author

Call me a Treasurehunter Misc... very misc. (Weiila)A musical (!!) written by DomaDragoon, featuring a lot of the Final Fantasies and Breath of Fire 1 ^_^ Follow Locke Cole as he fights for survival, dignity and love in the Midgar slums. Features Celes Chere, Squall Leonheart, Nadia Guardia, Gobi of the Fishthingclan, Faris Tycoon, Kefka Palazzo and many, many more! Soundtrack available in a shop far from you!
Critics say: "Another fabulous DomaDragoon production, get your tickets now before they are sold out!"
Control Final Fantasy VI/Live a Live (Weiila)A very short but very thoughtful story of Edgar's (from FF3/6j) thoughts as he waits desperately for news on about his wife, who's in labour. It's in the crossover section since there's a point towards Live a Live at the end ;)
The Hatred Live a Live (Weiila)And here we have another Live a Live fic, pure this time :) This is a silent conversation between a desperate Orsted and a cold, cruel Odio. Very touching and descriptful even though it only consists of two beings speaking.
Relic of the Past Castlevania (Weiila)Yet another Castlevania fic, told from a surprising point of view. It's Dracula telling somebody who remains unnamed about his bitter view of "life" and the heroes that comes to vanquish him everytime he rises from the grave.
It's not what you might believe it to be...
A truly sincere look at your typical villain in a new light. (Not sunlight, of course!!)
To Sleep, Perchance to Nightmare Misc (Weiila)A series of vignettes from various games, including Lufia 2, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 7 and more. The heroes sure are brave when they are awake, but in dreams their fears arise. Fear of failing, betrayal, loose a case against Squall...
Winter of the Heart Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Somebody is standing on a cliff, looking out over an endless ocean and bitterly contemplating the fate befallen the world the person knew. As well as darkly thinking of revenge against the creature that caused it all.
A dark fic and a very good one, with a lightly said surprising twist at the end.


The Unbearable Mirror Xenogears (Weiila)A post-Xenogears fic in which Billy is hired to take out a group of Reapers in an Ethos church during a thunderstorm. In the fight that envelopes him in a feeling of raw disgust about most of what he is and has been, he drags him through all the thoughts that he has too long suppressed and struggles for the bravery of facing himself. Great to see some unusal games get "ficed", and this one is a great little story to boot!

About the Author

1 2 3 4 5 6
Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)A captivating tale about the Final Fantasy 7 gang after the end of their battle against Sephiroth. New troubles arise with new (and an old) villains that are set on Reno and Cloud. The plot is good, and the relationships between the characters are truly innovative. Nothing is like it appeared to be in the game; Vincent is Reno's father for one and ol' Vinny's relationship with Lucretia is nothing like we're used to see. And even though things are different than usual, drakonlily writes it so that it makes perfect sense.

Duran the Warrior

A Night Out Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim)The first story in the Seiken Series by Duran the Warrior, it sets the scene and introduces the characters nicely. While it is not as well written as the other stories in his series, it is still a good, quick read. Kevin and Riesz (Lise in some translations) make such a cute couple! ^_^
Peace Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II)(Mazrim) A nice story about how Kevin and Riesz get to know one another better, it is in dialogue-only format, which seems suited to the way this series is going, with more emphasis on character interactions than on imagery. Nice dialogue nonetheless, and an overall innocently humorous fic.
Growing Up Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) Continuing on the character development between the characters of SD3, this fic centers around Elliot, who has just learned about the "birds and the bees" from Duran. It is a very humorous story that has some adult overtones, but nothing that I think the visitors of this site will find offensive, I don't think. If you do find it offensive, lighten up a bit, it's not as bad as some out there. ^_^
Shadows of the Past Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) The first story in the Seiken Series that's main purpose is to further the plot. It still has humor and lighthearted events, but the story is largely about a shadowy figure from Hawkeye's and Riesz's past. Nevertheless, it is still in the "comedies" section to keep it with the other fics in the series.
Making Sense Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) Another story largely about the plot and shadowy characters, this one focuses around Hawkeye at a fighting tournament to decide who is the strongest fighter. Now we'll finally be able to answer the age-old question: Who is stronger, Kevin or Hawk?
Odd Guys Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) A story about Ashton's and Leon's from Star Ocean 2 quest for love. I think that this may rank among the most humorous of Duran's fics, even though I've never played Star Ocean 2. "We were going somewhere, but we had a slight argument and the ship wasn't on autopilot." Heeheehee, quite funny...
Cooking With Ashton Star Ocean 2 (Mazrim) From what I've watched of cooking shows ("Iron Chef," mostly), this is a hilarious, if a bit short, cooking parody with characters from Star Ocean 2. We want more parodies of cooking shows!


In another dimension... Maybe Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Now this is dangerous stuff... everybody who plans on reading this better turn off any sanity you have left if you like to preserve it (why you'd like to do so is beyond me, though... ;) ). It's a completely crazy humor fic; Eihra gives us the dramatical scene in the Ocean Palace where the heroes are supposed to be beaten by Lavos... sliiightly rewritten. If you thought Kefka was irritating, wait until Frog starts showing signs of being influated by the transvestite angel...

Ersatz Sobriquet
About the author

150 g Final Fantasy I (Weiila)A second fic considering the original Final Fantasy game by Ersatz. Now taking a look on how the heroes came to assemble he brings us a bit of drama, action, humor and romance, all in one story. And with a party seldom used in these kind of fics; Black Belt, Thief, Red Mage and White Mage. Reader reviews of this fic.
2012 AD Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)PuPu is a cute fellow, isn't he? But he comes from an advanced race after all, and when multiple times proven that humanity is beyond all known cruelty those peaceful sweethearts have to take action. The title and fic were inspired by the X-Files, so don't expect a story about happy little aliens dancing around among the flowers.
A Warrior's Bane Chrono Trigger (Weiila)A very dark and violent story about why Crono can't speak and why his dad isn't present in the game. The horror grips you from the very start and does not let go for the whole fic. It's a great read, but definitely not for younger readers.
Reader reviews of this fic.
Booya Sucka! Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Well whaddaya know, the man who's commonly known here as a thriller-tragedy writer can do humor as well!
A very enjoyable story about a superhero in the world of FFVII, courtesy of... Hojo of all people. Oi, for an evil mad scientist he has a knack for creating good guys. Anyway... no villain will be safe on the street anymore now that Booya Sucka is put into action!
Bullets Cry Of Red Tears Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Our tragedy horror writer is back!
In this fic, Ersatz opens up the mind of a Shinra soldier, following the thoughts of a Random Encounter, a bit like in Compulsory Duty. Very angsty. If you like Ersatz' stories, you'll definitely like this one as well.
Wanton Violence, Brazen Immorality and An Unwanted Recourse Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)The dark and violent semi-sequel to Bullets Cry of Red Tears. The little girl who lost both her parents have grown up into a beutiful but bitter woman with only one goal in sight: revenge. She'll stop at nothing to ease the pain she feels, and as she finds out that it was a certain Vincent Valentine who killed her father she starts threading a path covered in blood as she trains for the day she can kill the murderor.
Younger visitors should not read this one.
Cherry Pop Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Short and lovable story about one of the FF7 characters who's dreams didn't really come true as she wished after the game, with the sudden insanity of a pained man. But in the midst of the ashes somebody else steps into the picture to fill the hole left by the one who departed.
Compulsory Duty Final Fantasy I (Weiila)About time somebody gave those little pests... poor little buggers some attention. All those imps... just exactly why do they attack the light warriors when it's pretty evident that they don't stand a chance? Pretty sad about one of them.
Glen Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Sorta alternate universe... sorta. It's a retelling of Chrono Trigger in fairy tale form. It's not really the plot you might remember... and still it is. Almost. Somewhat. ^_^
How Ironic Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The gripping tale of love, hate and tragedy, a woman's jealousy which leads to disaster, as the title implies very ironical disaster. Not for Rinoa fans... Reader reviews of this fic.
So I pulled Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Once again a superb psychological thriller by Ersatz, and once again I have to bring out the NOT FOR YOUNGER READERS sign. In this story, the last one you'd expect is cracked down by pain and finds a radical solution to all the problems the person sees in the world. Reader reviews of this fic.
The Rain Never Touched Me Final Fantasy IX (Weiila)Muses a la one of the more bad-boy type guys of the FF-heroes; Amarant Coral. Bounty hunter, ninja, species unknown? He's got attitude, and he's not fond of the people around him. Excellent characterization.
To Appase the Gods Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)After the ending of Final Fantasy 8... Seifer has commited yet another crime, one he cannot find forgiveness for among the humans, since it hasn't much to do with his own race. No, the crime has brought the hatred of the GFs upon him, therefore he must face them all and seek forgiving.
Vanilla Nights Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Considering who wrote this fic, being the master beside d_Galloway of horror, this is a surprisingly tender and warm story about the man in black from Final Fantasy VI; Shadow. A look at his life - without getting sentimental, mind you - he does in the end come to the conclusion that right now, in a time of peace, things can actually turn out alright. Not perfect, but good enough.

E x o d i s e

Star Ocean: Red Star Star Ocean (Weiila)The heroes' work is never done (so what else is new? ;)). This story takes place four months aftar the victory in the game...
A star clearly seen in broad light just can't be a good sign... especially not if it's red...


Chapter one
RPGC community (Weiila) If you read Online life (a comic by Spoonybard, a link to it can be found in the Link section of RPGC), you know the staffmember's more humorous sides (this can be found at the message boards as well). And here thay are; in fanfic format! In the Prologue the main characters and villains are introduced, in chapter one you will once again face the fact; cuteness is the deadly sister of DOOM! Superb characterizations, humor, plot and even art! With 70% more My little ponies! For character bios and even drawings of some of the people participating, go here (Faetan's own page)
Chapter 2 RPGC community (Weiila)The horrifying and hungry Moogoon attacks! And that's merely the start of it... the cliffhanger at the end of this chapter gives me the creeps! O_O
Chapter 3 RPGC community (Weiila)The long awaited continuation of the whacky RPGC tale ^_^
Still in captivity Faetan meets the strange figure who instructed Charlemagne what to do in chapter 2. Even worse, they are old friends... Macc is brought to safety by another helmeted fellow. Merlin tries to find out if Lunaris really managed to kill Faetan by mistake, and as Mazrim isn't allowed to tell him, our piano magnet have to turn to... other sources... the search is on and the fellow Hiryuu collected from Moogoon's preys make his entrance (God save us all...). Features Macc facing off his evil copy (in his own words: "Finally, a story in which I can actually hurt Dark Macc, it's like a dream come true! ^_^").
Chapter 4 RPGC community (Weiila)Can you say "hoo-ha!"? Well, "yay!" works too ;) It's another chapter of Rendezvous!
In this one, Merlin goes out in the middle of the night to find the source of his piano curse. Who is the person (apart from Hiryuu) who hates Merl enough to grant him such a cruel gift? The answer... lies within Sluggish Hollow.
And what happened to Tenchimaru after he was about to get married off in the last chapter? *grins*
Rendezvous Chapter 4.2 Something
Guest Chapter by Weiila
RPGC (TD)The gang is assembled once more. After Merl manages to work his way through certain... "issues", Zero manages to awaken an ancient horror. Filled with inside jokes, this one's great. Ask around if you need help understanding them :P


Search for the Emerald Weapon Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Oh, don't you just hate those darn Weapons? Well, they can be more complicated to beat than you thought. This is what eventually will turn out as a strategy guide to beat the merm... I mean, Emerald. And humorous along the way :)


Healing Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)An interesting fic, another good example of how an author created character can have a leading role in a fanfic - without being one of those pesky Mary Sues.
A surgeon by the name Rei Desai buys the ShinRa mansion of Nibelheim, unaware that she gets a stingy vampire-lookalike included for no extra charge. An interesting story about how to make renovations and try to make use of a mad scientists old lab, the perils of a former breast-enlargement surgeon, and maybe a little romance between a couple of heroes that weren't part of the main plot...
The Way it Should be Final Fantasy VII (TD)This fic is kind of like poking the brain with a long stick. Strange, but surprisingly not very painful, at least if you bear with it for a bit.


One Winged Angel Translation Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)A... somewhat... innovative translation of the lyrics for Sephiroth's theme song.
OK, not by the rule a fanfic, but I found it a very funny parody. Give it a read, you'll be chuckling guaranteed ^_^
My Arm's Gold an' Hojo Stole my Girl Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Not a parody translation this time, but an original song - or poem since there's no music - by Frijol. It's once a gain a humorous piece :)
The Summoner Town Nursery Song Final Fantasy IX (Weiila)Another whacky "translation" by Frijol. This time it's Melodies of life being turned into a somewhat strange nursery song from Madain Sari... yeah ^_^;
Hojo's Karaoke Number Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Didn't you see the title? Run for your lives, it's the Apocalypse!!
A song about some unexplained stuff in FF7. Considering the imagenary setting of hte thing, read at your own risk...
My Tamed Canine Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)Another silly song from our song parody writer, this one ah... a love song from Nanaki to whatever lady lion(?) creature he found to marry...
Black Mage's Whining Session Final Fantasy I (Weiila)The song/poetry/parody writer is at it again!
In this one, it's our dear ol' Black Mage brooding over his life and his lack of face and feet. Humorous, but with a bit of a mangled but still grim undertone.


Vincent's Torment Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)This is a peculiar, dreamlike fanfic about Vincent after the games end. He's plagued by nightmares and visions of Lucretia. The border between reality and dream fades quickly, is he sleeping or not? Still in his chest or in the strange cave where the Death Penalty was found?

About the author

Author's note Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)What the title says ;)
A shadowy past;
The story of Shadow
Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)The first installment in a series that are meant to clear out the past of each hero of FF3/6j. Starting with Shadow Goyangeta takes us through the life of a wanted man, from his tragic first days in life to the tragic experiences that turned him to a ruthless assassin and ninja.
Heh, seeing Kefka call Gestahl "uncle" just gives me the creeps...
A chip in the pile;
The story of Setzer
Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)Second one up too! This is about Setzer. From a boy seemingly cursed with misfortune to a skilled cardplayer and owner of the airship Blackjack, much thanks to a certain, kindhearted scientist and mechanic.
Just a Treasurehunter;
The story of Locke
Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)Goyangeta's tales of the characters of FF6's past continues. It's Locke's turn next; about how he met and lost Rachel to heartbroken and bitter join the Returners.


Covert OPs Irvine style Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A very intense and rather violent fic, told from Irvine's point of view. He, Zell and Squall are on a SeeD mission, and it's not one of the nicer ones. Not easy either, the three have to mop their way through heaps of guards to reach their target; a Galbadian man who somebody would rather see removed from power.

Herr Rommel

Of Love and Gunsmoke Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)Oh, don't you dare to leave this one unread!
This is an Alternate Universe story, in which Final Fantasy VI has been turned into one of ye olde gangsta' movies, with Locke as the leading char - a typical "she was a tough broad, but she needed my help" kind of detective. It's got drama! It's got action! It's got romance! It's got Kefka leading a mob squad of killers under "Godfather" type Gestahl while governor Edgar Figaro only can wring his hands!
And don't drink tea while reading this. Just a kind piece of advice from a lady who spluttered with laughter whenever another character stepped into the scene in his/her twisted role. They all stay true to their professions - in a way.
Promises to Keep
2 3
Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)It's the sequel to Of Love and Gunsmoke, and the Second World War is in its final stages, as the FFVI heroes aren't safe from drafting either - darn Herr placing Figaro in USA just do a gangster flick outta the game, eh? Don't look at me like that, gang!
A rather brutal story as it never was very pretty by the front, and no romanization of it in sight either.


The flower Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)A different look upon the ever again resurrected flower girl of FF7. A brief, dark tale taking place during one of Aeris' (probably) more depressed moments. Very innovative in the question since she tends to be the happy one.


FF7 - The Sentry Objective
2 3
Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)A story centering around a man named Zymon, hunted by Shinra, living in the Midgar slums selling materia and giving information to Avalance. Not the best pick of career, but what to do in the world of Final Fantasy VII?
There's some harsh language, so younger readers should skip this one. Everyone else, enjoy!

Jade Dixon

Power Is Beauty Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Now here's something very innovative! How often do you see Flea get to narrate his... err, its... own fanfic? This is a very interesting little story with a twist on the end that'll surely have you jumping on your seat.
Silk Shackles Chrono Trigger (Weiila)Schala is the star of this work, finding herself thrown from graces and into a time and era where Zeal is long forgotten. Even if she is treated kindly, her own demons are torturing her constantly. A very interesting fic looking at the psyche of this dainty-looking princess and her attempts to deal with her past.
As well as learning not to mess with the reflexes of a certain warlock, especially not when he's in the middle of a clash with his least favorite green knight.

James L. Aevermann

Time Screwed Fanfic Square Crossovers (Weiila)A crossover starring characters from Final Fantasy 7, 8, Tactics and Chrono Cross. One seldom sees even a somewhat serious crossover, but they tend to be good, and this one is promising if incomplete for the moment. With both humor and serious matters, as the heroes find themselves trapped in a strange world none of them really recognize (though it does seem a little familiar...).

Jenova's Witness

Join the Lifestream Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)The flower girl in the pink dress from Final Fantasy 7 looses her consciousness and takes her first steps in the world beyond, to be greeted by a somewhat surprising entity. There's no revolutionary plot in this fic, but it's a very interesting talk between Aeris and the power.

Jeremy Chapter

Pupu's Saga Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim)An extremely long, almost novel-like Fanfic in the world of Final Fantasy 8, after the game's end. Every character is explored fully, and Pupu's Saga has a gripping plot, well-developed characters, an exceptional understanding of the Final Fantasy 8 world, as well as his own brand of quite hilarious humor. A must read! (14/8 update: added chapter 22-26) Reader reviews of this fic.


The RPG News Team, 2 ,3 Misc. (Weiila)Lookie here, Galloway's brother is a writer too :) And he's leading his very own news team through rain, storms, monsunes, catastrophes and complete insanity... what did you expect?
And don't forget some of the weirdest ways to end a chapter ever invented. Somebody's going to have one hell of a headache...

Joker Loire of the Turks
About the Author

Machine Gun And White Flowers Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)A prelude to FFVIII, starring Raine and Laguna. The tale about how the bumbling moron with the world's biggest heart and the collected barowner met and fell in love. Very sweet for being one of Joker's creations, thumbs up for that too!
Meteora Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)What's an "albumfic", then? Well, you've got one right here! It's liek a songfic, 'cept its a very long fic and each chapter has a song from an album. I might be wrong about this, but since I've never seen one of these before this might be the first fic of its kind :)
Rinoa and Squall's relationship will go up and down while Linkin Park plays their songs and the other heroes try to help out in various ways.
Penultimate Force Prologue 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Another FF8 fic by Joker, and in this one something I've never seen done before is introduced; the Church of Hyne and it's servants, with confession booths and holy writings.
Rinoa has disappeared, leaving only a letter of explanation - containing a few strange phrases - behind. By this, Squall has been so depressed that the rest of the gang, especially Quisis, have been forced to fight like animals to keep him alive. But just in time for his careful steps back to reality, strange things begin to happen. Garden accepts a couple of questionable murder assignments and a new meaning is given to one of Ultimecia's riddles. It seems like forces above nature are at work.
Private I Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Selphie's lucky socks are stolen, and Irvine takes up the case in pure, paranoid, over-analysing and suspicious Dick Tracy rip-off style. Say your last prayers, Balamb Garden... especially with an old fashioned Pink Panther/Inspector Clouseau assassin on the loose as well.
1 2 3 4 5
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Dark beyond belief about Squall, who after the tragic death of Rinoa that he believes he himself caused is running through the underworld of humanity in a wild hunt for the truth. He's aided by mysterious phonecalls, but the informants are secretive and he has no idea who he can trust. As his old friends begin to fall before his helpless eyes, he is also accused of murders he was the sole witness of.
Retaliation: Afterpiece Noir Prologue
1 2 3
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Dark with a capital D is the sequel to Retaliation, it hasn't got Noir in its title without a reason. I don't recommend people with paranoid tendencies to read this, because you'll have a field day...
Squall's attempts to get on with his life in peace are completely smashed by the murder of his new girlfriend, and he's thrown back into the Netherworld of humanity in the hunt for the murderer.
*checks list* Eh, we're gonna need more game-characters...
Retaliation: Endgame, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Yes, this really is the end of it, Joker says. The ultimate conspiracy will finally be revealed and solved, the person behind everything will be taken cared of... er... NOW we're REALLY out of game characters... anybody have a Phoenix Down?
Not much more I can add really, if you've read the other parts of the Retaliation trilogy, you probably know the drill already.
Revenge Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Here we go with psycho Squall again, this time on a different level. I don't recommend that children and people who love the commander read this, as he's presented in a less than glorifying way. Those who don't think that Rinoa and Squall should be together can calmly read on, though, as well as those who like dark stuff.


Ravages of Glory Final Fantasy VI (Weiila)Dramatic and gripping about the time told in the legends of Final Fantasy 6; The War of the Magi. The tale follows the young man Treskyn, actually starting with him in a very bad condition and then moving back - in a very clever storytelling manner - to a couple of years earlier, of what led up to his situation. Impressive writing, this.
But... hasn't anyone heard about never trusting a mysterious fellow with strange powers?

Jo the Mighty

Valkyrie's bedtime story Misc (Weiila)Written on request from Valkyrie Esker, on her regular "bedtime story" greeting :)
The tale of how evil works in the mind of a normal animal, turning it into a horrifying and deadly monster.
And Jo leaves it to ourselves to guess why that band of heroes are the heroes and working together... ;) Reader reviews of this fic.

Julius Caesar

A Thousand Dreams Legend of Mana (TD) A cute little Legend of Mana fic about Lil' Cactus, the living cactus we've all come to... uh... love? Anyway, in this fic, his master decides to take him out for a pet. The first part of a mighty saga, which we will all share with our future grandchildren.


Final Fantasy Tactics (Weiila)Two poems from the world of Final Fantasy Tactics, the first from Ovelia's point of view, the other from Delita's. They're not a happy couple, and these are two very beautiful though bitter poems by the one and only KaiserVonAlmasy.
Not going back Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Seifer looks back on the events during the game, and he doesn't regret anything. Over and over repeating one single phrase, the only thing he can hold true after all he has gone through and lost.
Scenes from a
parallel universe:
FF8 (Scene 1-6)
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)*tries to get back into the chair after falling off laughing* This is an insane humor fic by good ol' Kaiser, and a darn good one too! To sum it up; why try to stay true to the stereotypical character molds when you can smash them completely?! (Reremastered, 7/9) Reader reviews of this fic.
Scenes from a
parallel universe:
FF8, part 2 (Scene 7-14)
Final Fantasy VIII(Weiila)Here we go again... enter Ellone, Squall reads Shakespear, Edea gets possessed again, Selphie drinks coolaid... can it get better?! :)
Scenes from a
parallel universe:
FF8, part 3 (Scene 15-20)
Final Fantasy VIII(Weiila)Yes, here's more! This latest scene isn't so very focused on humor, more on the careful, reluctant romance growing between alternate Seifer and alternate Selphie. It's so cute... but somehow so horribly creepy at the same time...
The new scenes carry a return of humor though. Disclamer: Warning! Reading part 16 may cause drop of IQ! *grins*
Scenes from a
parallel universe:
FF8, part 4 (Scene 21-27)
Final Fantasy VIII(Weiila)Edea is possessed. When Edea is possessed she kills things. Well, she tries... (update 2/12)

FF8, part 5 (Scene 28-32)
Final Fantasy VIII(Weiila)The end is nigh, will everybody find someone to love? Will Edea get dispossesed? Will Sid ever get rid of his stupid mask? It is now complete!

parallel universe:
FF8, The Cast

Final Fantasy VIII(Weiila)The cast of the wacky alternate universe series by sir Almasy.
The Returners Save Christmas Final Fantasy VI(Weiila)After the world was saved, Terra seems to have been falling into a depression. She still takes the time to tell "her kids" a Christmas story about a good king trying to save his country however. The legend of Santa Clause in Final Fantasyesque style... very cute ^_^
The Time eggChrono Trigger (Weiila)You know the drill. Everyone makes it through and live happily ever after once the big ugly meanie is dead. Or is it so? In this excellent story KaiserVonAlmasy plays out the scenario after Chrono Trigger's end, but not the sequel fic we are used to see. Here, the heroes failed to resurrect a comrade before killing Lavos.
What Odd Behavior For Such A Brave Warrior! Shadowgate (Weiila)Sweet, a fic about a game never ficced here before! The classic puzzle/semi-RPG Shadowgate is up for a butchering that probably will leave the poor warlock Talimar crying... provided the fabled... uh... Donald... even makes it to the inner chambers of the castle, since there has been a teeny tiny mistake here...
A hilarious, wicked parody.

Kimmy B

Auron's Lost Loves

Final Fantasy X (Weiila)A currently brief (but promising to grow) tale about our favorite guardian in red reluctantly telling Tidus about his dark past which led him to the point where he now finds himself.
What Am I Going To Do Now? Final Fantasy X (Weiila)Really, really short post FFX story about Yuna's feelings. Cute though :)

Lady Aliena

The Choice Final Fantasy VII (Weiila) After the game, Cloud is still troubled with whom he truly loves. I know as well as everyone that there are mouthfuls of fics with "Aeris vs. Tifa in the blondie's heart" theme, but Aliena does a great job as always, so it's definitely worth the time it takes to read.

Days' Child Series

Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) This is actually a collection of seven fanfics, based on the children's nursery rhyme "Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace..." It's sort of a character study of each of the characters in FF8, attaching the 'fair of face' or whatnot label to each one of them, and then talking about their childhood, how they grew up to be the person they are in the game. It's actually really interesting, even if some of the histories are 'made up' in a sense by the author. It all makes sense, and the author has a very concise, very nice writing style that makes the reader gobble up each one of these stories in quick succession. Very cool if you've played FF8 (as you should, since it's one of the best FFs to date in the opinion of this humble librarian), and still cool (if a bit confusing) if you haven't.
Monday's Child
Tuesday's Child
Wednesday's Child
Thursday's Child
Friday's Child
Saturday's Child
Sunday's Child
Family Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) A charming story about what a Christmas in the world of Final Fantasy 8 might be like, this centers around how various characters would act, how they'd feel, what they'd think, based on both the game and on Lady Aliena's past writings (the Days' Children series). A nice story, good for some laughs/cries, as with most of Lady Aliena's work.
The First Time Final Fantasy VIII (StarStorm) A rather romantic fic, that ends on quite a funny note. Things are ultimately not what they seem (or what you think, you little perverts), and Aliena shows how well she can string her readers along. Still, a romantic comedy from an excellent author, and it's short, so go read!
Fortunes: Norris Chrono Cross (Weiila)The first story in a series by our lady Aliena, considering the characters of Chrono Cross. This one is about Norris, a commander of the Porre military. A man that tries to stay true to his ideals and belief in the good in people until he gets proved otherwise.
Fortunes: Orlha Chrono Cross (Weiila)Aliena's series continue with Orlha; the life story of a girl and her twinsister, that never wanted to be parted from each other. Another excellent proof of Aliena's way of describing fear and loss.
2 3 4
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Aliena brings out yet another masterpiece in FF8:ness, this one a true tear-jerker.
When Irvine hesitates about his feelings for Selphie, he looses her to another. On top of that he manage to get into an argument with Quistis just before they're sent on a mission together with Zell. Strange things are happening around the world, and something is definitely ajar in Esthar...
Hardin's fall Vagrant Story (Weiila)A look in the mirror of the past, telling the story of John Hardin before the game's beginning. With Lady Aliena's trademark of elegant wording and joy of storytelling, this is another great creation of hers.
One Of Our Own Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) A fic set in the world of FF8, centered around Seifer (but told from the point of view of Xu), and about how the events up till the end of FF8 would have affected him. Interesting to see it from the point of view of an observer - but combined with Lady Aliena's writing style (which I must confess, it really impresses me, though I can't seem to find the words as to why), it creates quite the powerful piece.
Misunderstanding Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Our queen of FF8 delivers yet another great piece, this one taking a gripping look into the way the human psyche works when feeling threatened in the game of friendships. Not the usual pairing here, but is it pairing? Are they just friends? This is the questions leading to the Misunderstanding. Excellently true-to-life and realistic. Maybe this'll help both all males out there and me understand why women change their minds so mysteriously and suddenly all the time... (no, I dunno either and I doubt many of us ladies normally do :P) Reader reviews of this fic.
The Narshe Trials Final Fantasy VI (Mazrim) Set in the time after the end of Final Fantasy 6, this story provides a somewhat sad (if true to human nature) idea of what the future of the world will become. Celes is imprisoned for her previous ties to the empire, which of course angers the people who she fought with to save the world. This fanfic, from the points of view of three different people, shows how this new world of governmental politics is faced by the former heroes who saved the world. I know I'm overusing this word, but it's quite cool. :)
The Return Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)And here's another great FF8-fic from our very own Lady Aliena. This one considers Seifer's attempts to return to a decent life after the end of the game. This is of course not free of complications, and the story will contain a few not too common but interesting and sweet lovepairings...
The Mission Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Selphie needs Irvine's help with a little shopping... and he gets to bring two friends along to do it. A good reason to learn not to laugh at a friend facing an embarrasing mission.
Mildly humorous as the heroes show that they can plan, fight and survive... but maybe not get the best presents for a woman...
There's Something about Selphie Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) One of the few 'comedy' fanfics the archive's gotten in a long time, this fanfic just goes to show that even though Selphie might seem like an airhead...there's just something about her that ALL guys love. The bubbly personality, the constant smiling, the kawaii innocence, all these things tend to addle men's minds, used to a very amusing effect in this fanfic :P.
Winter Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Whooo! Our classical FF8 queen is back! And with a fic even!
Selphie tries to hold a speech about freeing the GFs, but people won't listen to her. This causes Irvine to ask Shiva to help out, which she does after some thought. But the Guardian Force of Ice might have other plans than merely helping out, as the gang of SeeDs soon finds out as their sniper starts acting weird.
What about Nida? Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) Yeah! What ABOUT Norman? Err...Nida. ^_^ This fanfic centers around the trials and tribulations of Nida, the other SeeD graduate along with Squall, Zell, and Selphie in FF8. He's not mentioned much in the game (indeed, Squall even forgets his name), but this author with her cool, concise, yet very lively writing style brings him to life, and breathes humanity into this almost nameless character of FF8. Reader reviews of this fic.
What about Xu? Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) A companion story to the epic tale "What about Nida?" this story is told from the point of view of Xu, another side character in the events of FF8. Basically, it's a retelling of the story of FF8 through her eyes, which is interesting if only to get a fresh perspective on everything. Funny, interesting, nice, cool, what better adjectives can a story ascribe to have?
Where You'll Be Final Fantasy VIII (Mazrim) A sequel to "What about Nida," reportedly written because Nida demanded to get the girl. Well, you'll see what happens in this story, which is very humorous, even if it is slightly bittersweet because Nida is quite shy and sensitive to things like that. It's as much a love story as anything, and one that I think the shy, more nerdy (it's not bad!) types could identify with. Or hope for. Sorta like Tenchi Muyo!... :P Reader reviews of this fic.

Lady Reece

Because Final Fantasy IX (Weiila)A quickie that deals with the relationship between Zidane and Garnet after the lil' thief has run off for a while to think things through and let himself cool down for a bit. Some things never change... Cute, and nice if you feel like reading a short story after all the epics.


Griever Chronicles: Griever
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)This is an epic FF8 story, at times cruel and dark but surrounded by sparkles of hope and light. Larathia works with a reaccuring theme in her fics, which you'll see more of later, about the origin of the Guardian Forces. I won't spoil it however.
Squall goes against the SeeD rules in order to tell Rinoa further secrets of the mercenary schools, but she resolves to become one of the warriors anyway. Something is strange with the Griever ring, and somebody wants Squall for a devilish experiment...
I advise younger readers to stay off this one, though it is fabulously wellwritten there are parts which children probably shouldn't read.
Griever Chronicles: Zell
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Several years after the birth of Griever, Zell comes back from a mission he did well... until his client was killed, and he himself got deadly wounded. And that is merely the start of it, for as the investigation mainly led by Seifer goes on, it turns out that the torture that Squall was put through still left marks in the world, in the shape of six small humans...
On top of that, Irvine will have to take Squall's place. In more ways than one...
Once again an epic tale with action, romance and a bit of humor. Quite a great read indeed!
Dark Messenger
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)So Griever is handled in their chronicles... what about one of the other Guardian Forces? What sorceress and her knight would create a creature so vile as Diablos?
The gripping tale of the sorceress Carolin - a young tomboy woman with no plans of getting caught up in a net of men or knights, a group of Squires in training, and Lord Leonheart, a knight bitter after the death of his Sorceress, Marie.

Interacts a little with Griever.

Little Miss Little

The Fog over Dollet Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)The tale of Seifer's father, how he lost his wife and left his son at the orphanage. Rather sad and melancholic, which of course isn't a bad thing. It's always great when non-existent characters get a little spotlight.

Louce And AnonymousAustralian

Blood and Whiskey
2 3
Final Fantasy VII (Weiila)A twisted story with raw humor and a bit of violence. In other words: *waves with the "Not for younger readers!" sign*
Vincent and Cid are in the Big Apple... Grape, discussing life, vampirism, responsibility and the usual stuff when the mafia breaks into the picture, hunting for a lady called Amanda. There's quite a bit of swearing since Cid spends most of the time being lightly said grumpy, and the violence is about the fact that Vincent gets irritated when people shoot at him... run you fools!!

Lord Edrick

The Curse Lifter Dragon Warrior Man, for all their good up-bringing and education, the heroes of Dragon Warrior are still stupid enough to equip stuff clearly marked "cursed". So now the merry group of three warriors of the second game in this series have to search out a way to get rid of the cursed sword. This might not be too complicated in the end, but still it's a funny lil' story that I recommend.

Lord Zero

Once Again Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) A Seiken Densetsu 3 fanfic taking place after the game, it details the rise of a new evil, but focuses more on the relationships between characters. These relationships change like those in real life, and this fic offers a very realistic view of just how these warriors might treat each other, in times of peace and in times of strife.
Shadows Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana II) (Mazrim) Sequel to "Once Again" by Lord Zero, this SD3 fanfic is a bit more violent, and has a less video-game-ish plot than the first one. A good read, sure to bring laughs as well as thought to the reader. And it has stuff about Norse Mythology, which we all should love :).


Death Beyond Death
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)This fanfic dives into the conspiracy theory of Final Fantasy 8, the one claiming that Ultimecia isn't just a villain in the background but in fact in the game almost all the time. A tragic tale about a woman quickly slipping into utter despair and the evil sorceress' view of her last hours of life.
Reader reviews of this fic.
A Grand-idi Day Out
2 3
Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Action with a hint of humor, very nice!
A training session in the forest turns into chaos and the heroes have to fight for their lives. In spite of a big scary villain trying to destroy the world, the SeeDs find themselves surrounded by an angry colony of one of the worst enemies in the whole FF-series. One that really should get better toothpaste...
Questioning One's Faith Vagrant Story (Weiila)A very warm (though a bit angsty) Christmas fic set in the realms of Vagrant story. Lea Mondé leaves scars that are hard to erase. They definitely makes you question the society you live in and the things you see around you. But even if your heart is trying to tell yourself that you're contempt with your outlook, you might need that little reassurance that there is something good guarding the world. Even if it's the servant of the Dark that will bring the belief back to you, he will certainly do it with love.
The Third
Final Fantasy IX (Weiila)Mikoto's story, told from her view. Mostly in a quite robotic way, as she has no soul or emotions. And even as she gains them her world forses her to once again become cold. Very well written, and a masterful way of with words creating feelings of hopelessness and bitterness.
The Strangest of Friends Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)LunarCry explores the time Selphie shortly mentioned that she had used a GF before coming to Balamb Garden. Great characterization of both Selphie and the GF in question, warmly recommended! (Though "warmly" might not be the word since it's all placed in Trabia, which is one cold place, but meh... ;))
Reader reviews of this fic.
To Absent Friends... Final Fantasy VIII (Weiila)Not exactly a sequel to "The Strangest of Friends", but it might be a good idea to read that first as you'll meet Selphie's friends there, when they were younger. During the reconstruction of Trabia Selphie's bubble of optimism bursts due to harsh, unfair words and she breaks down. The only one available for listening turns out being Squall.
