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'!

More than Meets the Eye (FF2, Hilda/Leila)

When Leila first met Hilda, she expected frills and fuss, a princess who didn't know her arse from her elbow when it came to the ways of the world. (Paul told her Hilda wasn't like that, but Paul had always been one to loudly praise whatever skirt caught his eye, so Leila gave his opinion as much credit as it deserved, which is to say none.) She was surprised to find quiet competence, and beneath the pampered skin of a princess, there was steel as fine and strong as Leila's favorite knife. Hilda might not have ridden the fields with the resistance, but she didn't rest on her laurels waiting for them to bring her the spoils of war, either. By now, Leila knew just how much work Hilda had put in--was still putting in, now that the Emperor was dead or in some deeper hell, and Hilda was one of the few of royal blood left standing.

Of course, Hilda being Queen of Fynn meant Leila benefited from certain luxuries when she visited, and she was taking advantage of that right now, lounging in heated water up to her chin and watching as Hilda frowned over paperwork. "Y'know, if my mother scolded me as a child about frowning, I bet yours did twice as much," she drawled.

The frown lightened, as she had intended, and Hilda looked up and smiled at her. "And you are such a shining example of adherence to maternal admonishments," she said lightly.

"Oh, I took what I needed." Leila stretched, and smiled when that caused exactly the distraction she intended.

"And what does a pirate need to keep of her mother's scoldings?" Hilda asked. "Or is there more to you than meets the eye?"

"Come over here and find out," Leila invited, and then when Hilda foolishly approached the edge of the massive sunken tub fully dressed, she reached out snake-quick to pull Hilda in with her. Amid the splashing and the flailing was laughter and kisses, and then they both stopped, and their eyes met, as they had in the throne room that day long ago.

"I'll not change for you, but that doesn't mean there isn't some of me you can use," Leila said, her voice catching on the unexpected gravity of the moment.

"Nor I for you, but I think you'll find I'm more than a royal ornament." Hilda slid her hands into Leila's wet and tangled hair and drew her close for a kiss, and Leila held her close.

Who'd have thought a pirate would be kissing a princess? Not she.

There was indeed more to Hilda than met the eye.
