Final Fantasy Kiss Battle 2016!!

Yes, it's happening! Right here and right now! :D

We are still considering our availability and options for running a full exchange sometime this year, and we'll keep you posted on any future developments. In the meantime, we wanted to bring back the Kiss Battle: it's a tradition, and really fun!

Since we aren't doing the Chocobo Races this year, there are no teams and no points. However, we will give a shout-out to the top five contributors, with special recognition to the person who creates kisses for the most canons. :)

FINAL FANTASY KISS BATTLE 2016



We will be running the Kiss Battle on Dreamwidth only. There are two main reasons for this: 1) Dreamwidth’s comment limit is huge, allowing for longer kissing masterpieces; and 2) Dreamwidth still supports subject lines for comments, which are vital to a meme like the Kiss Battle. However, the Battle is open to everyone. Feel free to participate with your Dreamwidth (account creation is invite-free right now~!), your Livejournal or other OpenID account (see here if you want to set up an OpenID), or anonymously.

Have fun! Get smoochin'!

Another Betrayal (FFXII OGC, Ashe/Basch)

[personal profile] lassarina 2016-02-19 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
"Your Majesty, get down!"

Ashe was already drawing her sword—she had carried Durandal at her side for this diplomatic meeting and damn the conventions, and she was glad of it now—when the familiar voice called out. She threw herself to the side, bringing Durandal up to block the massive swing of a two-handed sword; the impact jarred through her shoulder with agonizing pain as muscles tore. She spat a curse even as the glorious chill of Cure magic carried the pain away on a flash of diamond brilliance, and the warm thickness of Protect settled around her.

The taste of those magicks was familiar, but she dared not turn her head to find Basch—Gabranth now. Beside her, Larsa had also obeyed his guardian's shout, and he was pulling his own sword from its scabbard. It seemed neither of them had trusted this meeting.

Ashe stepped sideways as the next blow came down, but the insurgent overextended himself, and she slid Durandal through the gap at his armpit as neatly as she might skewer a capon at table. He gurgled and fell, and she turned to face his friends, the eerie calm of battle wrapping around her like a favored cloak.

She had been trained to the treaty-table, but it was the lessons at Vossler's hand in the sewers that had awoken joy inside her, though the circumstances had been dire. She cut methodically through the well-armed insurgents, briefly wishing for a shield, but not even a Queen's prerogative would have excused that. She heard the clash of metal behind her, and spared a glance for Larsa, who was holding his own against a pair of spearmen. Ashe gutted the dual-wielding hunter—oh yes, she recognized that style from the Phon Coast hunter's camp—before her and ducked beneath the crossbow of the next, hamstringing him on the way to sinking her sword into the undefended back of one of Larsa's assailants.

The insurgents clearly had not expected them to offer armed resistance, and it was the work of mere moments to put down the rest of them, leaving them standing in a sea of death and blood, gasping for air.

"Are either of you injured?" Basch demanded, his voice hoarse with a terror Ashe recognized.

"I am well," Larsa said.

"And I," she said through a throat tight and dry as the reality set in, that they had been attacked at what should have been a private meeting. She gave Durandal a rough cleaning on the cloak of the nearest fallen insurgent, and sheathed it once more, while the shouting and stamping outside the room told her that the rest of the guard contingent had discovered their fellows' failure.

Larsa's face was tight with anger. "Judge Magister," he said, "attend to Her Majesty. I shall have words with the guards." He went to the door, but at least had the sense to check through the spy-hole to ensure his own safety before he opened it.

Basch pulled off his helmet and set it aside, his gaze searching Ashe with the intensity of a physical touch for any sign of injury. Other than the faint pulsing gold of his Protect spell, there was nothing to see. He gave a curt nod once he had assured himself she was whole.

"How fare you?" she asked, the only words that she could force to form from the mass lodged in her throat.

He glanced around with an eloquent expression, then shrugged beneath the heavy plate mail. "Well enough," he said. "My work is not usually so lively."

She hesitated, for this question was one she feared to ask. "Have you found…contentment?"

His eyes met hers. "I gave my word," he said. "I will serve."

"I know." She stepped closer, enough to smell the tang of his sweat and the blood—not his—on his armor. "I would not ask otherwise of you."

He moved slowly enough for her to forbid it, but she stood steady as his gauntleted fingers came beneath her chin, as his head bent closer. There was much said with his kiss, and as much unsaid, and as she returned his kiss she thought that ever had the smell of blood and death lain between them, even as his armor did.

He drew back, and their eyes met, and without a word both turned and went to the door to resolve the matter of who had betrayed them this time.

This wasn't what I set out to write and I haven't played FFXII in years, orz. Writing Penelo's dialogue was a fun little thought experiment, though. I hope you like it!

---

"This is the cloaking system's acclimatizer," Fran explains, her soft voice gathering and gathering Penelo's not-so steadfast attention; normally, the younger girl is steady when it comes to this sort of thing.

Today, she feels like wisps in the viera's air, light and blessed.

"It learns the area, but in order to get a proper read, it needs to be kept clean."

It's hardly the most glamorous of jobs, sliding into the underbelly of a ship and cleaning off the muck with your bare hands. Penelo takes to with eagerness and efficiency, handily employing the same practical, no-nonsense attitude she has on hand for keeping food on the table, a roof over her head, and - of course - ensuring Vaan stays out of too much trouble. There are a lot of parts, but Fran is a skilled teacher, warm of voice and willing to repeat what may need repeating.

Eventually, Penelo feels comfortable enough to slide her own hands into the machinery. It feels alight with life, metal clacking in an almost friendly way and exhaling its warm breath onto her hands.

When she's gotten the acclimatizer to shine, she holds it over for Fran to inspect.

"Well done," Fran allows, and there's something to the husk of her voice that makes Penelo's neck warm.

"It's bigger than I thought it would be, down here, but—"

Penelo hasn't finished her sentence when the Strahl's intercom crackles to life. With it, a hearty Archadian brogue speaking out, "I believe, that is what she -"

Just as smoothly, Fran reachs over and flips the switch to silent.

Then, with patient eyes and a beseeching half-smile, she cajoles Penelo, "go on."

"Oh, uh - I guess I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to keep track of everything once I was down here, but it feels..."

Pausing, because there are too many words for how she feels right now, with metal clinking and breathing and laughing and living, inches away from her nose, and she feels enveloped in it, and she isn't sure there's anywhere in the world she would rather be.

Fran's shoulder bumps against hers, accidentally or otherwise, and it runs through her like a jolt. She feels powered, like a piece of the ship, fluid and alive.

Accepted.

"It feels like the Strahl gave me permission to be here, and I shouldn't waste it."

It's a whimsical sentiment, from the mouth of a girl who tries so hard not to be whimsical, who plucked her head out of the clouds and planted her feet on Rabanastre's burning red cobble streets years ago.

It's okay, she tells herself, because they're back in the clouds now.

Fran's arm snakes out, taut and telling at her waist, and as the space between them is eased into nothing, Penelo can't quite suppress the giggle that spills into the other woman's mouth.
