Hello, friends. In light of the new legally dense TOS made available to us only in obscure translation, and my own growing discomfort with certain things, I may be deleting this journal in its entirety soon. I have an import queued up for Dreadwidth so all content and comments will be preserved, and many of you can already find me there. I don't care for the scorched earth approach of moving on in fandom, I prefer to let the old haunted houses stand for visitors old and new, but I'm not sure how much choice the new version of freedom of speech leaves for peace of mind. I go by Ardwynna in fandom anywhere so if we lose touch here, there's always Google.

I'll still be writing, still be posting, and I hope we stay in each other's circles one way or another. I've loved having every one of you be a part of my life.

Just a few glimpses of Seph being a dad to each of the kids.


“I’ve got the latest schematics here,” Sephiroth said, hitting the projector function on his tablet so Cloud could see. The tech specs in question warred for his attention with a desktop background that was clearly a photo from home.

“How come you’re so muddy?” Cloud asked.

“What?” Sephiroth looked up. “Oh, the pic. From when the boys were little.”

“Ah, yeah, I remember now,” Cloud said. “Those mud pie battles you used to have.” Sephiroth’s face had softened even as he scrolled to the relevant numbers. “Whatever happened to those?” Cloud asked. “Kids outgrew them?”

“No, not really,” Sephiroth said, hand hovering over the keyboard. “Ari started putting rocks in his.” He shook his head and maximized the window. “I’d have smacked him upside the head if I weren’t also kind of proud.”

The Short List
Sephiroth
ardwynna_m
I’ve got a slew of little marriageverse short fics in progress and no clue which one to work on finishing first.

1. The one where Ella wanders off into the woods.

2. The one where Sephiroth wakes up handcuffed to the bedpost.

3. The one where Aeris deals with parenting anxieties.

4. The one where Sephiroth finds something odd between the couch cushions.

5. The one where Sephiroth finds something even odder on his desk at work.

6. The one where Sephiroth brings home The Dog.

7. The one where Sephiroth brings home a boy (Guardians).

8. The one where Ella goes to the prom.

9 The one where Sephiroth has to race the twins to the emergency room.

10. The one where Aeris starts university.

These, plus three epic length fics, a long story arc about Ella quitting ballet and taking up another hobby before the stage calls her back, another one about Aeris becoming the Planet's premiere expert on Lifestream phenomena and Ancient Culture, the twins growing apart and Sephiroth growing comfortably old. Some days I look at the outline file and my head hurts so much I take up my embroidery instead. :/ And this isn't even counting the endgame fic.

I've become a sad, annoying little person who talks more about my plans and goals instead of actually accomplishing them. What a joke.

[Fic} Above and Below

Title: Above and Below
Characters: Aeris/Sephiroth
Rating: T
Words: 1030
Summary: Sephiroth and Aerith pretend that they met while Midgar still stood, when he was a powerful General and she was a pretty girl below the plate.
Contents: Roleplay - Power dynamics, exploitation, survival sex.
Notes: Set after Path and its eventual sequel, but before the Marriageverse. In the 'dating' period, essentially. Plenty as yet unexplained about the world and relationships around them, but this is for them alone.

Working on a marriageverse one-shot that got a little more plotful than the three drabble ideas that merged to create it. Here's a bit:

***

Sephiroth shrugged and focused his gaze on his daughter. She stared right back at him, as always, eyes seeking him out the way her infant mind did whenever she was awake. “We made a beautiful baby, Aer. I know every parent probably says this, but she really is the prettiest baby ever.”

“Of course you’d say that,” Aeris muttered from her pillows. “She looks just like you.”

“Then you know I’m being honest.”

“And vain.” Aeris kicked him through the sheets.

The back of the brain
Sephiroth
ardwynna_m
One of the things I hate about the way I write is how I labor over every word and crank things out as slow as a snail. But that's not the topic today. One of the things I LOVE about the way I write is how my brain figures everything out while I've got my back turned doing other things. It might be like this for other people but I've never asked around. There was quite a drastic slow down in consciously plotting these past few years, completely expected under the circumstances. Apparently, somewhere in the back of the brain, something was cooking and these past few months there's been an explosion of everything back there coming to the fore.

The Jackalope fic? Outlined, begun, and tying in with Path and the Marriageverse in an unexpectedly epic way. Path's eventual sequel? Shaping up and actually making more sense. Even the 'End Of It All' story that comes at the end of the happy interlude of the marriageverse fics, the whole thing has begun to fit together in my head in the best of ways. While I was off getting a degree, my subconscious created a beautiful monster. I love my little AU-verse! :3

To deal with that thing I hate about the way I write, I'm going to try like hell to reach at least 500 words a day. It's not much, some days I might get more, hopefully never less, but something done is better than nothing. The main things might not see daylight till they're complete but no more distraction fics.

Jackalopes

I was in the middle of Chapter Two in the Path rewrite, doing something about the very stiff and formal way I phrased everything back then, when one thing made me think of another thing, which in turn led to another other thing, which birthed the plotbunny for a prequel. In the course of minutes that plotbunny achieved full blown jackalope status and has been prodding me with its horns ever since. I haven't been this fevered up about a fic since the early days of Path itself, when my approach was too rigid to be effective about it.

It's a good plot, or at least I'm properly hooked by this harpoon my brain has tossed at me. It's disturbingly complete already, going from start to finish in my head in half an hour, clear as day. I'm going to write it. If I don't it will haunt me. I'm trying to be smart about it this time, creating a solid outline from start to finish before I type a word. It's a bit more like writing-as-work than writing-as-fun, but I can afford to prioritize completion now rather than pure stress relief. The actual process is a bit faster when I have a framework to go from.

I expect that like the Path rewrite, it won't see the light of day until it's all done. I don't want to get stuck in WIP land again, and approaching things like a complete draft is good for maintaining coherence. I don't know what this will mean for deliberately meandering, lighter fics like The Mission, or Paint The Town, or all those other ideas I had on the To Do list. Maybe I'll post chapters in between, when the drama of these other two becomes too much. Forgive me, fandom. I'll be here forever, apparently, but I'll try not to take that long.

Edit: And the outline is done. Six long or twelve average chapters, plus prologue and epilogue.
