Summary: After citizens of Rabanastre have been growing ill from a mysterious waterborne illness, Queen Ashe sends Penelo to go to the Archadian colony of Spira to recruit the help of the genius alchemist Rikku. There she becomes Rikku's servant for the duration of the assignment and they discover that Rabanastre's problem is one that's been plaguing the island for years. Now it's up to the both of them, Yuna, Lulu, and Auron to find the solution that will clean both Spira's and Rabanastre's water supplies, but not everyone wants to see Spira saved.

I actually think my fic writing this month is going to be fairly set in stone. Also, this month is brought to you by plot?


  1. Origfic Bingo Card. )
  2. Work on (Finish) my bidder's story for [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan. It's a minimum of 1500 words of Ukitake/Shunsui fic for Bleach. I actually want to get this done ASAP.
  3. [community profile] intoabar fic: Kanzaki Nao from Liar Game meets Hanagata Ippei from BOSS. The possibilities range from utter crack, up to and possibly including mixed-up identities (Hanagata's colleague Kimoto Mami shares an actress with Kanzaki Nao) to something fairly serious and plotty though still hyped-up on sugar because, well, Hanagata.
  4. [personal profile] spook_me fic #1: Liar Game fic featuring mysterious masked people and some sort of thrilly suspensful game.
  5. [personal profile] spook_me fic #2: Final Fantasy XIII fic featuring carnivorous reptiles on Pulse.
  6. Edit the Megaflare.

22k words, approximately 13k of them contiguous from the beginning. I'm still in need of a title, since "Rikku is an Alchemy Genius and Bosses Penelo Around, which Penelo Tolerates because People are Dying, and Anyway they become Friends and Stuff and Save People with the Help of Auron, Lulu, and Yuna" is not exactly a great title. Descriptive, maybe, but not great.

I've been using 750words to keep a steady progress on my draft. So far I'm at approximately 8000 words, and I'm just painting in broad strokes, with extra details and more minor plot points to be filled in later.

To tell the truth, it's refreshing to write something that's both plotty and non-sexual/non-romantic. I think I've determined that the story itself is going to be gen/mostly-gen, although with enough interaction that it might be shippy, but it's mostly about the plot and ladies running around solving problems and being awesome (if it says anything, Auron is the only man in the 'main party' so far, with Balthier and Vaan playing minor roles to assist).

Plot/Worldbuilding types of notes )

I'm not going to be as hardcore (heh) with these than I am with the KB card. (Also: so thinking of adapting a few of the stories from the Porn Battle for the squares)

I also started on my Megaflare. )

for [community profile] megaflare_ff. Which means I've got a nice bunny.

To absolutely nobody's surprise, it's going to be a post FFX-2 fic. It focuses on Rikku and Paine(probably also paired, but in a background sense) on a salvage mission to the Zanarkand Ruins. The basic premise is that Yuna is in the process of creating the Spira Museum with the mission of honoring all the people's of Spira and fostering a wider cultural understanding in the post-Sin world, Rikku and Paine are sent to the Zanarkand Ruins on a collection mission. There they meet a group of Unsents (from the original Zanarkand civilization) who are upset at all the smugglers who have been taking artifacts from Zanarkand since the Eternal Calm started. Rikku and Paine are then charged with tracking down the smugglers and stopping their operation.

Right now, I'm thinking it will take place within the Good Ending and having Tidus as a minor but crucial part of the plot.

I've decided against participation in [community profile] hc_bingo in part because of everyone's concerns (maybe next year, after they've had some time to refine). There's also the more selfish reason that the h/c fic that I need to read/write isn't directly covered by any of the prompts (maybe one, but I'd refuse to write it under that prompt), and I don't want to mix any of the other prompts (a lot of which are easy enough to do wrong on their own, without them being shoved to the background) with the thing I want to write. So I might write/edit that one on my own and maybe post it.
