quinara: Approaching Black Mage from FFIX. (FFIX black mage)
Yep, it's another one of those days where I pretend to be in Final Fantasy fandom - IX particularly today and my favourite little character Vivi. You may have seen the FFIX black mages on my beloved icon made by [livejournal.com profile] becbet, but here is the true star in an electro video. I should apologise that there are rogue credits over some of the clips, but I really wanted to use shots from the game's opening sequence and I couldn't find a good way of getting the credits out of view. Grr!

City of One.

Since I am nothing if not predictable, this contains jerky music, jerky cuts, spinning things and flashing lights. PG content-wise, probably.

"Answer me, puppet. Do you deny your very birth?"

[Final Fantasy IX + Pretty Lights 'City of One']

Oh, and if you want to live the dream (and reassure yourself that some of the black mages break their programming, you can always just enjoy a nice bit of the game. :) )

It works!! At last it is returned to me and it works!! It works!!

OK, I forgot to bring any games back with me in the gloom of having no PlayStation, but I'm popping to see the parents at the weekend and then I'll have games!! Other than this driving game that is far too open box for me (Los Angeles, you are unnavigable!!) and this weird golf game I don't understand at all.

And it works!! I sat on the rug with my controller in front of the telly and I pressed the buttons and it made noises at me!

And I keep seeing adverts for FFXIII-2! All right, so I want to play VIII again, and then there's X and X-2 and XII and the actual XIII to play, but I would say it's, what, about forty-fifty hours a pop for a good completion? That's no so long even though I like the shopping and the subquests and the all the chocobo stuff.

I've lost everyone with the chocobos, haven't I?

Damn, for the first time ever I wish I were eleven again. No fic to write; no PhD to do - just me and the old PlayStation and a sofa and a telly and the summer holidays and a litre of long-life orange juice. All right, the orange juice wasn't the best bit, but I am something of a liquid snacker and that was when Coke was controlled in my house.

Also, when I was eleven, I knew what to do with cardboard boxes, rather than being faced with the annoyance of knowing I'll need them to move my stuff as and when, but not having any idea where to store them...

Also, I was rubbish when I was eleven. I think I need to combo that with the orange juice and the summer after GCSEs.

I haven't been writing very much recently (mostly because of being busy, but also, I fear, because I'm a little burnt out on the written word for the moment - it'll recover in time, I'm sure!), but I've had a lot of fun putting together another fanvid - for FFVIII!! Specifically about Rinoa.

Apparently [community profile] queerlygen is where I post for different fandoms, because I've just written my first ever Final Fantasy IX fic for the 'road trip' challenge they're running over there, featuring Quina (who is canonically genderqueer) and Bobby Corwen (the cutest chocobo ever from the Black Mage Village). It is essentially the story of two adventurer-gourmands bonding over a fight and some stew; 1300 words; set a few years after the game ends.

A Qu and xyr chocobo take on the world, one meal at a time.

Stroper Stew.

And, er, in case anyone wants to read but has no idea what I'm talking about, I present the following links:

Quina (No connection to my pseud, funnily enough, though I wonder whether or not I am not actually the personification of Quina/Inara crossover shipping...)
Bobby Corwen
Iifa Tree
Stroper Also, right at the beginning of this clip.

These are possibly not actually sufficient...

ETA: There is also a sequel now: Fish for the Blues
