Favorite FFX ficsI lurk mostly in one category, so here's my favorites (heavily colored by my own weird biases):
Good News by fyre byrd, the story of Lulu's first pilgrimage:
Perspective by pyrefly, a yummy PWP starring the hottest characters in FFX (your mileage may vary):
Love Falls Asleep by cupcakegirl:
This one hurts my head but is very well written. It's an AU, a gumshoe detective story with the mafia. More smut, though that's only a part of it.
|helluin||This is a dreamily-written piece that appears to be merely beautiful, but the ending proves that fanfic can be original. A unique perspective on a character that every FF fan knows:|
|helluin||I've found this author writing several brief, sweet, vivid, insightful, and true drabbles and short sketches in FFX, FF8, and Kingdom Hearts.|
The Undercurrents piece is particularly good, IMO.
|helluin||Oh, another drabble expert. Ourdailymask has been posting some quality pieces on LJ, and she just posted two good ones on ficwad -- one tiny wrenching sketch of Yuna, another slightly longer ficlet on Auron watching over Tidus as a child.|
|helluin||Oh my GOSH.|
Cupcakegirl is always, always a consummate writer, but if you have not read anything else of hers, at least read the third chapter of this three-oneshot story on Wakka and Rikku colliding in their buttheaded fashion.
"Yevonite to Al Bhed"
|Jurhael||What about X-2 fics, because I have quite a few suggestions for those, and do they have to be on Ficwad? Because some are only on FF.net.|
|helluin||Sorry, I've been taking some time off and been laid out with a sinus infection, so I've missed this thread for a while.|
If you're still here, go for it!
I was just going to rec ficwad fic here, because there's just so much out there, but if you know of any particularly good stories out there, be my guest. t recommend it to anybody. ;)
|helluin||Have I never recommended the author with the ironic name of "storyless"? |
I first discovered her wrting here on ficwad, I think. Since then we have struck up a lively acquaintance over a mutual fandom, and co-moderate an LJ community devoted to it. However, the whole reason that happened is because she is an insightful and eloquent writer whose felicitous word choices I can only dream about.
One of her best new pieces isn't up on ficwad yet, "Ligaments," although I hope it will be soon. In the meantime... if you love Final Fantasy in any way shape or form, check out some of her writing.
