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

  • All prompts will be organized by fandom, using Master Links. When leaving prompts, please put it under the right canon! If in a compilation canon, please include the important details!

  • To leave a prompt: leave one prompt per comment, with FANDOM: CHARACTERS/RELATIONSHIP in the subject line and your prompt in the body.

  • To leave a fill: reply to the comment in question. Please use the subject line of your comment to label your work: TITLE (if relevant), FANDOM, CHARACTERS/RELATIONSHIP, RATING (ANY KINKS, WARNINGS, FLAGS).

  • There should be kissing! All kinds of kisses are welcome: gen, shippy, smutty, chaste, familial, friendly, angry, happy! We’re pretty open to anything you want to call kissing. We are fans of all of it.

  • Fanart, fanfiction, drabbles, doodles, live action movies -- whatever you want to supply, we’d like to have it.

  • Be kind to others regarding character or ship choices and prompts. This should be fun for everyone!

  • Prompt early, prompt often, and leave as many as you want.

  • Prompts can be filled multiple times!

  • To leave a blitzkrieg kiss: If you have something but no one has prompted it yet, blitzkiss away! Just reply to the comment for your fandom, and make sure you use the subject line to label your work.

  • Be sure to check back often -- new kissing action could be showing up everywhere!

  • Spread the word! Tell your friends!


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'!

It's time for some real man talk between manly men, that might require some alternative methods of convincing. Maybe discussing Cloud's Zack obsession? Intimacy issues? Gold Saucer date? I don't actually care HOW it happens, I just want smooching. Bonus points for Cloud/Barret/Tifa.

Sephiroth wakes to green overhead, earth underneath, and the crisp clear light of northern climates. The air is sweet and cold, heavy with the scent of growing things, and despite the faint rustle and sway of wind in branches, everything here seems very still. Even the birdsong is muted.

He knows this place. He had passed through here before, with his mother's voice singing in his cells and the City of the Ancients in his sights, but he had known the way then. He's lost now. There are no paths in this forest besides the one leading in, which is nowhere before or behind him, and one direction looks very much like any other. But he cannot stay where he is – alone, unclothed, unarmed – so he walks deeper into the trees, into sunlight and dappled shadow, and doesn't look back even once. His bare feet sink into a carpet of moss and fallen leaves, and with every step, it feels more like he's dreaming.

It's a woman's voice that wakes him.

"The Planet doesn't deal in forgiveness," she says. Just that, and not loudly, but though she's nowhere in sight he hears her through the hush of the forest, a direction to follow where there had been none before.

Mother, he thinks, before he can think anything else, but she isn't. No, this is another woman he knows, though her words have something of the same resonance about them, tightly-entangled corruption and renewal. His enemy once, by her own design. He's not sure what she is now, aside from not so defeated as he had thought, but he walks with new purpose until the trees open out and she's there, sitting on a rock in a clearing with her knees pulled up to her chin.

She's wearing the dress she died in. It's stained a dull red-brown over her stomach, but the skin he sees through the fraying hole in the fabric where his sword had pierced her is clean and unbroken. Her hair is loose about her shoulders, and her eyes, when she lifts her bowed head to look in his direction, are the same as his.

"You know that, right?" she says. "A forest fire scorches the ground, and new seeds grow. Medicine can kill, and calamity can heal. What room is there for forgiveness in that?" She tilts her head and speaks as though he doesn't know it, as though he is only a lost creature and not a forest fire himself, and in this place – in this place she isn't wrong.

She hops down from her rock and walks toward him, and she's not graceful or ethereal or soft. She moves like any Slum girl, heavy boots on her feet and just a hint of what Zack (and who is Zack?) would have called don't-fuck-with-me swagger. She throws him a fleeting grin, like she's sharing a joke meant for only the two of them, and when she's close enough to stand looking up at him he can see that she's got crooked teeth and a scattering of acne scars across her cheeks – no perfect specimen like him, no puppet. If not for the blood on her dress and the strange way the light falls around her, she could almost be alive. But she isn't, and when she holds out her hand to him, he understands the offer and the price.

Even so, he takes her hand and lets her draw him down, her other hand in his hair and her mouth closing on his. She's solid and warm, the cheap fabric of her dress scratchy and soap-scented against his skin, and she breathes his breath and holds him close and still beneath the shadows of the trees. Lassitude washed over him at her touch, the forest's spell or a lifetime's worth of sleep debt coming due at once, and he sinks to his knees on the mossy ground, amid old bones and the smell of loam where countless travelers had settled in to sleep. She bends low above him as she lays him down, her long hair falling about her face, and she whispers, "I am not the Planet."

He feels the brush of her lips on his brow, ghost-light, and her hand resting on his chest, above his heart.

And then she's gone, and he's alone – as he never has been before, in body and in mind – with nothing but the sigh of wind and the pale light, and the ache of memory already fading.

Sleep, the wind whispers. Be at peace.

Sephiroth closes his eyes for the last time, and does not dream.

*screaming forever and ever and ever*

I've always had feels about Aeris and Sephiroth in terms of their dichotomy. Doesn't even have to be romantic; I just like them interacting together. And I've always wondered what would happen when they met in the Lifestream or via dreams or anything. This is just.... guh, the words, I can't English right now. This was everything I wanted it to be and then some. Could literally just read a damn novel circulating around this. I'm just in awe with what you did with this. And seriously, do you know how much I love drama and tragedy and messed up things? Have we met?! XD

But in all sincerity, thank you for taking the time to write this up. I honestly thought of all my prompts, this one would go ignored, so I was all *tiny gasp!* when I saw the notification on my phone. You're a doll ♥

Aw man, thank you! I also love these two and their dichotomy, and I think that what I like best about them is that for all their differences, they have so much in common... which of course makes them the best candidates for drama and tragedy and all those good things. I wasn't sure you would like where I went with the prompt or if you were hoping for something sweeter, so I'm really happy that you liked this take on it.

The door opens a little too quietly after the crash outside, which makes it notable. Tifa tucks the bar rag onto its hook and reaches for her gloves, but then she sees who it is, and relaxes. She doesn't know why Cloud, Reno, and Rude, of all people, showed up together, but they're walking side by side and no one seems to be looking for a fight, so she smiles at the woman in front of her and pours another beer. She scoops up the gil the woman drops with a murmured thanks, and moves down the bar to where they're leaning at the far end.

She knows what they drink, and it never changes. Cloud waves at her and walks on past, up to the apartments above the bar, and Tifa mixes Reno's margarita heavy on the tequila and salt. Rude likes his whiskey neat.

The gil they set down far exceeds the cost of their drinks, and Tifa rocks back on her heels, fists on her hips, and gives them a disapproving look. She should've known.

"Don't look at me," Reno drawls, hands up, unable to hide the smirk. "It was his idea."

Rude removes his sunglasses to reveal the vanishing traces of what must have been an impressive start to a black eye before Cure magic got involved, and hooks them on his jacket.

Tifa looks back at Reno. He sighs heavily and shrugs. "What can I say? One of your neighbors didn't like the cut of my suit." He fingers the dark-blue fabric. "You're gonna need some repairs on your porch."

"And the neighbor?" she inquires.

"Asleep," Rude says.

"He'll wake up in the morning, none the worse," Reno adds.

Tifa thinks it over. The area outside her bar is safe because Cloud keeps it that way, and everyone knows the house rules. The guy might have a hangover without the booze—strong Sleep spells will do that—but nobody's going to rough him up more or pick his pocket.

She leans across the bar and presses a kiss to Rude's temple above the fading bruise. He clears his throat and works to keep his expression neutral, so she winks at him as she gathers their contribution to the repair fund.

"Don't I get one?" Reno demands. "He got me too." He gestures to a fading splot of yellowing bruise on his jaw.

"No," Tifa says, and who would have thought three years ago that she'd be laughing with ShinRa's Turks in her bar? But she is, and they are, and she holds the feeling of relief close and safe against her heart. This is her normal now, and she likes it.
