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'!

(what is this I don't even go here)

Garrus flipped a credit chit at the bartender. "Another," he said.

The asari shot him a hard glare. "Haven't you had enough already?" In answer, Garrus glared back, and the asari picked up the chit with a heavy sigh. "Fine." She tapped the chit to the reader, then frowned. "Huh."

"What?" Garrus drained the dregs of his drink and pushed the glass to the side. "Something wrong?"

"It's been declined," the bartender said.

Garrus clicked his mandibles in irritation. "That can't be right," he said. "Try it again."

The bartender crossed her arms. "It won't work," she snapped. "Besides, like I said, you've had enough."

"Fine," Garrus rumbled. "I'm sure another bar on Omega would be happy to take my money."

"Be my guest." The bartender tossed the chit at his face, but before it could hit him, a hand snatched it neatly out of the air.

Garrus turned; the hand belonged to the human man sitting next to him at the bar. The man studied the chit, pushed it toward Garrus, and then pulled another out of his vest pocket. "Let me cover it," he said.

The asari looked at him, glanced at Garrus, then turned back to the man. "You sure?"

The man shrugged. "Why not? I hate to see a good fellow go begging for a drink. And I'll take another of these" -- he tilted his own empty glass in her direction -- "as long as you're at it."

"He's not exactly begging," the bartender grumbled, but she took the proffered chit and verified it before pouring the two drinks and handing them over. Then she slid around to the other side of the bar, as though to avoid any further conversation, not giving them another look.

Garrus turned toward his seatmate, who he thought might provide better company. "My thanks," he said, lifting the brandy snifter.

"Cheers," the man replied, clinking his tumbler against Garrus's glass before taking a drank.

Garrus sipped at his own drink, savoring the burn as it went down. "You're fast," he commented.

"I suppose so." The man picked up the credit chit that the bartender had left in front of him and walked it over the backs his fingers, a trick of agility no turian could hope to imitate. Then he stuck it back in the pocket of his gold brocade vest with a shrug. "Comes with the territory."

Garrus noted the old-fashioned flint-lock pistol hanging off the man's belt, the ruffles on his shirt. "And what territory would that be?"

"Terminus, naturally." The man set down his glass. "But I have been remiss in making introductions." He tapped his chest. "Balthier, captain of the Strahl, at your service. And you?"

"Garrus Vakarian," he said, holding out his hand for a shake. "Of nowhere in particular, these days."

"Not a native, are you?" Balthier pulled back with a wry smile. "Although no one here truly is, excepting perhaps Aria herself." He glanced down at Garrus's hand. "Quite a grip you have, there."

"Like you said, comes with the territory." Garrus glanced at the heavy rifle propped on the stool next to his leg. "It takes a steady hand to dance with the Widow."

"And fine dance partner she is, if you know the steps." Balthier nodded. "Though a fellow with arms as long as yours can surely fight at close range, at need."

"At need," Garrus agreed. "When you go up against the mercs on Omega, you take whatever advantage you can get." He tipped his head sideways and narrowed his eyes. Was Balthier flirting with him? It seemed probable, but with humans, it could be hard to tell.

Pleasant as the thought might be, it was time to call it a night. Garrus drained his drink and lightly set the glass on the bar. "Thanks for the drink. I won't presume on you for another."

"You are certain?" Balthier cocked an eyebrow. "We might find somewhere else for you to buy a round."

Garrus shook his head. "Nah, I'm good for toinght. Besides, that was mostly an idle threat. This bar has the best selection of dextro-alcohol on the station. I'll be back tomorrow, ready to be extorted again." He tapped his temporarily-useless credit chit on the bar -- he'd have to make sure it was restocked in the morning. "Care to join me? I'd be happy to add you to my tab." He widened his eyes into a grin. "Such as it is."

Balthier chuckled. "Consider it a date," he said, sliding off the barstool. "You seem a likely man for swapping some good war stories. For now, perhaps you'll walk me back to my ship? I arrived only yesterday, and the comings and goings of the station are still a mystery to me."

"I've only been here a few weeks myself, but I'll do my best." Garrus stood, steadying himself on the bar before retrieving his rifle. Maybe the bartender had been right about that last drink. Just as well to have company, then.

He pocketed his credit chit and followed Balthier out of the bar. At the exit, they paused. "Which berth?"

"Forty seven," Balthier replied. He looked to his left, then pointed right. "That way?"

"You've got it." Garrus clicked his jaw, amused. "See, you don't need me."

"To the contrary." Balthier glanced sideways up at him. "There are at least five turns ahead of us, through a dark and secluded area, and where would I be if I forgot one of them?"

Garrus had to smile, mandibles flaring. Yes, Balthier was definitely flirting. Maybe it was the alcohol, or maybe he'd just been alone too long, but Garrus found himself distinctly intrigued. Even if Balthier was human. "After you, then."

They walked down the hallway in comfortable silence, Balthier checking the turns and Garrus confirming them, until they reached the entrance to the berth. Balthier turned, brushing Garrus's hand with his own. A casual touch, light, and entirely suggestive. "My thanks for a pleasant evening."

"Same to you." Garrus bowed slightly, then straightened to keep from wobbling again. "Looking forward to tomorrow."

"As am I." Balthier stepped in close, eyebrow raised, lips slightly parted. It seemed like a signal, and Garrus obeyed it, leaning down to press his mouth on Balthier's. His skin was warm, soft, almost like kissing a pillow. Unusual, but pleasant. Comforting. The sour scent of levo-alcohol blended with Balthier's own musky smell, and Garrus found himself leaning in closer, curving a hand around Balthier's shoulder while Balthier stroked his left mandible, a thrill that went down to his does.

After a moment, Balthier backed away, and Garrus let him go. "Tomorrow, then."

"Tomorrow," Garrus echoed, and watched him disappear into the berth. He had no idea where this new friendship -- relationship? romance? whatever it was -- might be headed, but it would definitely be fun to find out.
