1:02PM - Vagrant Story meme

It's been quiet here lately.. so I thought I'd post this here too, in case people like to doodle. :) And to those who don't know, a meme is a set of questions which you answer by drawing pictures. I think people use screenshots as answers too.. do as you like!

Vagrant Story meme

I posted this originally in DeviantART, but I don't think everyone goes there, so.. here are some tips copypasted:

Pardon me for any language mistakes, I'm not a native english speaker, nor a connoisseur of old english language. I just tried to follow the snowflies.

To clear things up, here are the simplified questions:

1. Which Vagrant Story profession/class would you belong to?
2. Which enemy creature would you be?
3. Design your unique weapon.
4. What would your break art or magic spell look like, and what would it do?
5. What would your reaction be if you found the Blood Sin (Sydney's tattoo) on your back?
6. Who is/are your favourite character/s?
7. Draw yourself and some of the characters in a picnic somewhere in Leá Monde (or elsewhere in Vagrant Story world).
8. If you could give an advice to a character, what would you say and to whom?
9. Give wine to a character (or several characters) and draw what they do when they're drunk.
10. Draw how you would get out of the Snowfly Forest.
11. Draw some characters dancing like Müllenkamp (the lady in the opening movie).
12. Draw some of the characters with a new hair style.
13. Draw the character with the best pair of pants (in your opinion).
14. Tag people, or just leave a comment.

4:33PM - Vagrant Story AMV

Yes, I made a video from the in-game cutscenes. Yes, I had to avoid all the text boxes. And yes, I think it came out pretty well!

Audio: Angel - 8mm
Video: Vagrant Story

Anyway, I'd love to hear some feedback.

2:12AM - I'm really sort of bad at self-promotion...er, in public.

And lo, nine months pass, and there's another ridiculous big list of ficlinks and um...crack. And AUs. Mostly AUs, but I'm not going to lie about the crack.

all Sydney, all the time, really....Collapse )

9:52PM - Help

Hey there. I know this hasn't been posted in for a long time I hope people are still about. I'm hoping to try and find some Vagrant Story doujinshi. Ideally I'm looking for Sydney/Ashely doujinshi.

Can anyone help?

Since it seems there's people over here who'd be interested in such a thing, I thought I ought share:

7:22PM - *waves hello*

As a sort of celebration for updating my site for the first time in two years...have some links?

Also I should warn you that I like AUs. A lot. Like...really a lot. And also I am weak to challenges. Heh. *is nearly positive that everything but the crackfic is challengefic*

Made some if anyone is interested. :)

4:46AM - Oh, heck yeah.

After rekindling my love for this game (Read: Contributing my annual game completion per year of ownership), I so have to join this community. XD

I'm currently on my... fifth game of this file (for a total of 9 games played, finished or no, across two files), and have established what I'm missing in terms of abilities and insanity:

The Banish Spell
The... Other... 6 Risk Defense ability.
A couple dozen Break Arts
Holy Win (of course.)
Romphaieaiasiyaouaiayaia. Again, naturally.
And all the Dread/Hoplike/Jazeraint stuff.

But I don't care about the last part. For this game, I'm going all Leather armor, and going through MOST of the game with my fists so that I can get that last Defense Ability, since I have about 1300 points left to get it, and I'm killing everything with one hit when I use a blade. That's not cool.

Well, that's MY intro post. XD Keep the faith, Riskbreakers!

3:11PM - Hi!

Hi! I'm new and I really hope this community isn't dead :)

Despite having owned VS for years, I only ever played it to about half way through. I loved it, but I would keep getting distracted by another game or something shiny. Then I'd come back to it and start again and then get distracted all over again. I finally finished it a little while ago and I was so pleased that the end and events leading up to the end were as good as I'd hoped!

So I wrote this. It's just a short one-shot and the ideas in it are just things I came up with or how I saw them from what happened in the game. If there's anything badly wrong though, please let me know! I like to fix things. I hope it's ok to post this here.

11:54AM - Something you don't see every day... VS cosplay!

This last weekend was Anime Central, which I have cosplayed Sydney at for the last three years. The first year, it was just me, and people thought I was Ed Elric (hence the icon). The second year, I brought akatonbo as Hardin, and we had a few more people recognize us, though not so many. This year, mithrigil joined us as Müllenkamp, and three seems to be the magic number for recognition. Which was fortunate for her too, since apparently last time she wore this to a con, people kept thinking she was Princess Leia in the slave outfit. -_-

At any rate, the three of us were photographed a lot, and took lots of pictures ourselves. I admit a bias towards slashy Sydney/Hardin, because they're my favorite OTP and we were too busy finishing Hardin last year to take many pictures. But there are some pictures of just about every combination of us three here, since the third would conveniently step back to take the pictures. ;)

Lots of pictures... but not all 61 of them.Collapse )

There are more pics than just the ones in this post in the gallery. All are technically worksafe, but some are... well, incredibly suggestive. Not just because someone's wearing a gold bikini.

11:21PM - VS icons to share.

I'm known to make icons on weekends, and over time I have accumulated VS-related ones. Thought maybe some of you would be interested, unless you've already seen them in other game-icon communities. :P


Icons galore!Collapse )

5:15PM - VS colorbar

I'm not big on colorbars, but I just couldn't resist XD

5:42AM - Fic post

Over the last week, I've finally gotten around to formatting and posting a few VS fics that have been sitting finished on my HD for awhile, including the last few chapters of the multichapter one I had started posting. The last two are shorter, and pretty much FFXII-inspired character torture for Hardin. (You'd never guess I actually really like the guy, given what I put him through via fic.) As linked in my own journal:

Between - The long one, finished at last. This really is the happiest ending I could possibly give my favorite OTP, given the canon, and that's really rather sad.
Four Years - In which the assignment of a particular task at the siege of the manor brings back many memories for Hardin.
A Summons - Hardin never believed the faerie tales until Sydney brought them to life for him. Why not put another old tale to the test?

I'd post the PWP that follows Between, also, if I had a good place for it. Come to think of it, I need to find a good place to put all the VS pr0n.

7:22PM - It's sharing time!

...though what follows is definitely not appropriate for children. :D

yaoi_challenge recently hosted an Obscure Fandom Challenge, and everyone's favorite game-of-no-pants was one of the fandoms selected for inclusion. The challenge ended Friday and the reveal happened last night, so we are now all free to pimp our wares anywhere and everywhere. And damn if there wasn't some fic that needs pimping.

Needed by ciceqi
Sydney/Hardin; R, pregame. A fugitive and a prophet walk into a bar....
A persuasively plausible alternative for how Hardin came to join the team, and it ventures down a path at the end that is quite yummy, albeit short-lived.

Followers by ciceqi
Ashley/Sydney, hints of Sydney/Hardin; G, pre-, mid-, and postgame. In which the Dark always gets what it wants.
I requested this one, and she just *ran* with it in the best possible way.

The Raging Sea by miang don't hit me
Ashley/Sydney; NC-17, midgame. Ashley is confused, Sydney takes advantage, and the shadows keep on changing...
Two people requested Sydney being a manipulative bastard, and two people definitely got what they came for. It's also here if you want the part where I wax philosophical about the writing process. Didn't think so. :Þ

And y'know, while I'm at it, on the low low chance that anyone else out there hasn't completely rejected Ashley/Sydney yet but hasn't seen this: Into the Dark (Ashley/Sydney; PG-13, endgame), 50 sentences for that pairing. It has nothing even remotely to do with the other challenge, but it is set up to make a coherent story, and dammit, it is hands down my favorite of anything I've ever written.

Okay, I'll be good now. At least those of you ensconced in FFXII fandom might get a kick out of my alias for the challenge? *looks around* *crickets* ...

Current mood: fic!

It's been quiet for awhile now, so how about something... controversial?
Picture behind cut. Feel free to stare at someone's butt besides Ashley's.Collapse )

Poll #968750 The question of Hardin's pants.

Is the butt of Hardin's pants cut out, or is he wearing a leather thong?

They're cut out - Sydney likes it that way.
It's a thong - he needs extra protection from Sydney.
I have no idea, but thank you for the excuse to stare at Hardin's butt.

Current mood: silly

Wednesday, February 21, 2007


It only just occurred to me that I now could potentially post updates to my current VS fic over here, so uh... yeah. As noted on my own journal when I first started posting this, expect eleven chapters and 40,000+ words of OTP abuse. Still working on HTMLing all of it and posting to ff.net.

Title: Between
Summary: As time grows short and tensions grow high, Sydney and Hardin are beginning to fall apart. A new ally by the name of Rosencrantz is not helping matters.
Rating: R for RAT
Warnings: Slash, sex, violence, angst, frequently two or more of the above combined. Also warnings for zombies! And Rosencrantz. *shudder*
Notes: I would like to blame this on Vienna Teng for writing the song which set this story off and running and from which its title is taken, but I met her briefly since I started writing this, and she is very sweet and I would feel bad blaming anything this messed up on her. So instead I will blame Rosencrantz, and thank Vienna Teng for giving me an aesthetically pleasing soundtrack.
Same ficverse as Burning Bridges, with many NPCs reused, but I cannot decide whether I want it to be an actual part of my VS ficverse, because... well. You'll see.

Prologue - In which a night that once would have been quite enjoyable is somehow only frustrating and confusing for both Sydney and Hardin.
Chapter 1 - In which Hardin's poorly-chosen words prompt a few questions, and he is told of some assumptions that surely have no basis in reality, of course.
Chapter 2 - In which Sydney ponders one who is to come... and someone does in fact come.
Chapter 3 (new) - In which Rosencrantz asks too many questions for Hardin's taste, and Sydney finds himself troubled by someone else's dream this time.
Chapter 4 (new) - In which Hardin overhears a conversation he probably should not have heard, and Sydney has a conversation he should probably not have.

Current mood: busy

9:24PM - Fanworks

Wow, I had no idea there was a VS community. @.@ Anyways, I figured I'd post my VS fanworks - winamps skins and icons. Not a lot of stuff, but...

Skins and icondump

Please credit if you're taking the icons, thanks~

4:47PM - More art!

And it's art of a character who's likely to not...get much art!

It's Hardin!

My other favorite, second to Ashley. I'm hoping to do another picture of him in the near future (once I get my backlog cleared, anyway).

Current mood: awake

1:53AM - I HAD to get in on this.

Wow, didn't realize there was a Vagrant Story community until I randomly poked about interests...three cheers, regardless! It's nice to see this game get some attention. (Heck, any Matsuno title, FF12's only feeding prior obsessions.)

So...in regard to fannish activities, are there any particular guidelines? The fanart bug likes to bite me and I wouldn't mind tossing a few things in to get a little activity going.

Because the ridiculous lack of pants isn't enough. Especially you, Hardin. *POINT*

EDIT: Meant to get to this sooner, but! Since things are peachy keen on posting, I'm throwing in a bit of fanart. :D

And then there was Ashley.

I really wish there was a collection of Akihiko Yoshida's works somewhere, because there's a sad lack of references and the picture of Hardin I DO have is too bloody small. I don't think the in-game graphics would help me much, either. ;_;
