FF7/KH/Fruits Basket crossover index - Princess Tohru

Anybody remember the crazy FF7/Kingdom Hearts/Fruits Basket crossover from June? This post is the index for that series, since it doesn't seem to want to quit. :3

Fan-fanworks, overthinkeritis, and Way Too Many Serrano Chiles (TM) later...

Gongagan cuisine at its finest.

As inspired by Jou's birthday-fic Cooking with Zack. :3

Pictures coming... later. (On the bright side? I bet I have leftovers for a week!)

So what would you like to see next?

Given that the number of ideas I have waiting in line for free time is always a multiple of the amount of free time actually available, what would you like to see get worked on first?

(Note 1: The results of this aren't going to be binding on account of how the amount of work I have left to do on various next-installments varies from "a couple more pages" to "first I have to do the outline and then...", but I will keep it in mind when priority-setting.)

(Note 2: "All of them! All at once!" is just as much not an option as "Naruto," thanks guys. XD There is a reason I used radio buttons rather than ticky boxes.)

Poll #3736 What world would you like to see a ficbit from next?
Open to: All, results viewable to: All

What would you like to be the first thing I work on when I get free time?

I may have created a monster wait, I know I have created a monster.


I'm going to take random Sackiroth pictures (and SackFair pictures, and eventually SackCloud and SackAngeal and SackWhoeverTheHeckElse pictures once I get 'em done) and post 'em to the community with Ever So Helpful Commentary(TM). (See also Sackiroth's introductory speech. Also my cat's stupendous level of unimpressedness with Sackiroth's attempts at cat intimidation.)

Once Sackiroth gets to Jou, she says she'll take pictures of him around Japan and post those too! <3

Guessing game

I've got next to no wireless signal, so we'll see whether I can actually get this posted (and crossposted) or not... XD

I've wondered whether my writing has got as many identifiers as I guiltily suspect it does -- stuff that means you can take one (okay, maybe two) looks and go 'yep, that's [info]chibirisuchan.' So here's a bit of a challenge.

I wrote one of the FF7 Anonymous Kink Meme fics. (The FF7 kink indexer has helpfully compiled a list of links that go directly to the stories.)

Anyone want to guess which one is mine? (And/or contribute more fics or requests to it while you're there? ^_~)

I'm screening comments so that folks can't see what else has been guessed already. XD

braggin' rights pt 2: Sackiroth! :3

So, two days ago I didn't remember how to do a single crochet stitch.

By last night, here's what I'd gotten done:

Fear Teh Cuuuuute! )

braggin' rights

A little while ago, one of the LJ FF7 communities had a link to this adorable little sackboy!Reno amigurumi.


Only problem? It had been about a quarter of a century since I'd touched a crochet hook.

At 7 p.m. tonight I didn't even know how to do a standard single crochet correctly.

At 10:45 p.m. tonight I have my first smiley sackboy head more than halfway done. :3

And it would have been faster if I hadn't forgotten a significant factor in my calculations: The last time I did any kind of industrial-strength yarnfidgeting, I did not own a cat.

Starting at approx. 7:05:
Cat: (yawn) (stretch) (spots the shiny crochet hook) ...whatchadoin?
Me: ...
Me: ...
Cat: YAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRNNNNNN~~~~!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
(insert bloodshed, mayhem, and much yowling from both parties involved)
Me: ...and STAY OUT!
Cat: No faaaaaair! You cheat, you lying cheating thumbiferous thing with thumbs that invented evil evil EVIL doors and it's not faaaaaaaaaaair -- didja hear me yet? Didja?
Me: ...
Me: ...
Me: ...
Me: ...I think I could get to hate my life.

I finally gave up the notion of getting the whole head done when I stopped to look at the chart, moved my hand, made a really embarrassing noise, and realized that my entire hand had turned into a cramped-up painball and I wasn't entirely sure I could still feel my thumb. Note for next time: distribute the crafting over several days, not one soooooolid crochet session...

Still. Not bad for the first time I've touched a crochet hook in a quarter century. :3

ETA: Now with pictures!

FF7 Vocal Album...ish

So yeah, I've been a seiyuu music nut for (counts) ...just over a decade now. I have a couple hundred Japanese CDs I've collected in that time (largely when I was in Osaka and could raid the hundred-yen (i.e. about $1) used-CD stores like a crazed hyena).

I uploaded some sample songs by several of the FF7 seiyuu for Joudama. Some of them I picked because they were very in character, and some of them I picked because they were very, er, not what you'd expect. :3

Here's my general description of what's there:

* Aeris sings THE FREAKIEST SONG EVER. Listen to the tune while you're reading the lyrics, and then think about her relationship with Cloud, Zack, and Sephiroth a little. Then go OH MY GOD a lot.

* Cloud and Zack singing several duets

* Cloud gets trashed and sings karaoke at Seventh Heaven with Rude on sax

* There's a perky bouncy happy-Zack song, and there's a heartwrenching Zack song that may make more ouch if you know that Zack is also Kamui. The lyrics particularly rip you to bits if you speak Japanese. I should translate it some time, because it looks like animelyrics doesn't have it... anyhow.

* Sephiroth sings too. (The one I picked is all about eternity and obsession and a never-ending circle. Heh heh.)

* So does Kadaj. The song I picked for him is called "Unfair." (Of course it is...)

* Angeal gets COMPLETELY TRASHED and sings about his bitchy relationship with Genesis' literary pretentions. I translated the lyrics over here.

* Someone also gets him stoned out of his gourd and sets him loose with a ukulele. (This one is even funnier if you think about some of Genesis' jealousy issues. I translated the lyrics here.)

* Of course, I also put a couple serious Angeal songs up there because Inoue Kazuhiko was my first seiyuu addiction and it's my upload folder. Lyrics to one, I never got around to translating the other.

* Rufus is terribly good at oozing. Someone translated it here, please pardon their Engrish a bit.

* All the Turks have solos (except Rude). Some of the highlights include Tseng's incredibly bitter Wutai rap, Elena swinging like nobody's business, and Reno being completely devil-may-care ("even now the world keeps on going round and round, unstoppably..." I should translate this sometime too, because it looks like nobody at AL has yet.)

* Yuffie. Rumba. 'Nough said. :)

XDDD maybe more later, dunno... have fun listening and breaking your brains!

If you haven't seen No True Pair yet, go check it out. It is full of awesome shiny things. ♥ There's allllll kinds of fun going on by all kinds of crazy talented people. If you're a fan of Aster or Coyo or Laylah, the tag links are awesomely handy that way!

Here's a by-fandom link list to the ones I've finished so far (nearly all of which I wrote in the car during May road trips through the 'if something can go wrong it will' paranoia theory, though I admit I wasn't expecting 'half-my-house's-living-space-gone' levels of 'going wrong' at the time...

FFVII AUs - fan-fanfics for Ciceqi, #2 of 3 (set in Tentacleverse, Seph/Zack/Cloud/Aeris)

Titles: Tropical Fruit Cocktail (or "Waiter, there's a Tentacle in my Mai Tai." Or if anyone's got a better idea, please tell me? ^_~)
Fandom: FFVII
Author: [info]chibirisuchan based on [info]ciceqi 's Tentacleverse AU
Ratings: PG-13 to R in various sections
Disclaimer: totally not mine; never even played it in fact...

Also: Fanart by Dogmatix! Seph goes fishing - no cheesy hats involved. XDDD I'm not sure who's scarier - Seph or the fish! I take that back; Seph clearly won, after all!

...yeah. More tentacles. Did I mention how they just keep SPAWNING? (I'm so not going to be surprised if it takes me several posts to get this all up.) And I so wouldn't want to go up against Seph OR Zack once they got hold of enough weapons to have one per limb... XD

not to mention: oh the meta, let me count the ways! This is an AU of an AU and a fanfic of a fanfic. Never mind the fourth wall, I think I need a sixth or seventh wall to break... I'm going to look up the LJ and IJ links to Coyo's Tentacleverse and link 'em back in as soon as I get the fic itself posted & proofed.

I decided I was going to call it a day at 7 sections because, well. And I wrote the last two of them in the past 48 hours, and BOY did I not see that coming a year ago. A year ago my outline went (approximately) 'Hojo has got more experiments and one of them makes a nuisance of itself and the boys take objectio to this.' Until I started writing, I'd actually thought I was going to send Cloud out to deal with it so he could meet up with Avalanche and do the Start of a Beautiful Friendship thing. But the monster did its thing and Seph cleared his throat and eyeballed me and said I don't THINK so. And I remembered how pushy he was about anything to do with Hojo and I gave him the reins and... yeah.

Part 1 of what's looking like it might be 3 posts... )

FF7:AC: Detour. Kadaj/Loz, Yazoo, R for brainbreaking.

One of these days I WILL get my IJ and my LJ all in sync and link-updated and cross-linked and tagged and properly filtered and it is not yet that day. It is probably not even that year, given how insane the damn class and housework and workwork have been. @_@ In the meantime, have fic. Have been hanging onto it since September in the hopes of getting everything in sync. Didn't happen yet, deadline Monday, gave up for the moment... @_@

Title: Detour
Theme: #7
Author: [info]chibirisuchan
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Pairing/Character: Kadaj and Loz
Rating: R
Warnings: Not worksafe, and not brainsafe either. I can't get more specific without giving it away. But if you squick easily, you might want to pass this one over?

Disclaimer: I'm really serious about that not-brainsafe part, people. Watch out for that other shoe when it drops. ^_____^;;

Previous sections (for this chapter in particular, it's important to have read the previous ones in order):

Part 1 - Paved
Part 2 - Yield
Part 3 - Right of Way
Part 4 - One Way

One Way (FF7:AC, Kadaj/Loz, streetsigns theme #18)

...yeah. Still alive. Most of the people who have gotten hospitalized have come back also alive. Some haven't. This has been one hell of a year. I think I need to make myself an 'I Survived 2007' shirt on like Jan. 3 2008 or something.

Have also made an IJ in case of further epic lose on the part of LJ. Haven't populated it yet. Haven't got the brainpower to go around tracking everyone down twice. Don't want fandom to scatter to eight dozen different sites and never find each other again. Would massively suck. @_@

ANYHOW. In hopefully less depressing news: Fic madness ahoy. Hope to have more soon. (hope springs eternal... gotta learn to brace for them surprise attacks?)

Title: One Way
Theme: #18
Author: [info]chibirisuchan
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Pairing/Character: Kadaj and Loz
Rating: PG-13 to R?
Table of contents of the 25 streetsigns fics
Warnings: None beyond Kadaj-style psychosis just yet. (Neeeext time, though... ^_~)

Disclaimer: Totally not mine. Not even the core concept for this arc; it was based on a fic that I shan't identify just yet, because I want to hear the screams when the shoe drops.

Random author's notes: At some point I want to go back and write the triplets-devastate-the-Gold-Saucer part (and maybe call it 'Caution: Children Playing'), but this has been a horrible summer, and writing that kind of enthusiastic mayhem takes creative energy I just haven't got at the moment. I'm writing this this weekend so that I can keep the claim alive. I really hope this doesn't suck? If it does, I'm sorry... maybe I'll have some kind of higher-energy brain juice back before the next deadline? I really REALLY want the next one to work in particular... anyhow.
