Ugh. Ill.

I have flu. Not just a cold, flu. Temperature, sweating, oh-god-someone-cut-my-head-off-my-sinuses-are-killing-me flu. And this is my fifth day of being ill despite being at home mainlining orange juice.

...This is my excuse for why I just bought the PS1 versions of FF7 and FF8 off Amazon.

(I also have the Dragon Age expansion pack, which will be released tomorrow, on preorder. And the next "Gentlemen Bastards" book by Scott Lynch on preorder, although that's not going to be released until May. Shh.)

I have no excuse.

When I was writing A Step to the Left, I found it really difficult to actually stop, and I wrote a whole different end to it that I scrapped because by that point the fic was eleven pages long and it was just getting silly. I wanted to write even more after that.

But then the people who replied to the fic on the [community profile] areyougame comm asked if I could write more, so I figured I could resurrect this as an "alternate" ending.

Please note: given that this was the original ending to the fic, some bits of it don't match up with the fic and other bits are repeated.

Stuff I am going to write

I've been very unmotivated on the writing side for a long time now (and if I'm honest, I've also been unmotivated on everything else as well) for wholly uninteresting reasons that basically boil down to "RL".

So in an attempt to kick-start my writing again, I'm putting up a list of fics I am currently working on/plan to work on at some point in the future.

Some spoilers in the blurbs, FYI.

A surprising amount of this is FF7. )
More to be added as and when inspiration strikes.

I'm trying to figure out how to customise the layout of this thing without either tedious hexadecimal code amendments or saying "screw it" and nabbing a free layout meant for lj. Eh, I'll try again in the morning.

ANYWAY. In other news, I have now seen Advent Children: Complete. You know, that remake of Advent Children, since someone in Squenix actually noticed that its plot made no sense. (Although I guess that's giving them a lot of credit - personally, I'd subscribe to the theory that they decided it wasn't pretty enough for Blu-Ray, and since Nomura had thought up some more fight scenes/gratuitous shots of Tifa's boobs they decided to give it a shot.)

However. Despite my well-honed cynicism, Advent Children Complete actually manages to make things make sense. It even explains what the fuck the geostigma was about and how it was connected to Sephiroth, instead of expecting you to psychically know!

Plus they worked out how to make people bloody and dirty, which makes me happy because Cloud actually looks injured when he is injured! Although his top still suffers from the magical ability to mend itself. His fight with Sephiroth is also much less of an anti-climax because they extended it and made it look more like, I dunno, Sephiroth is actually difficult to beat.

And there's more ZACK. Having now played Crisis Core, I heartily approve of this. Zack is AWESOME. Screw resurrecting Aeris, I wanna ressurect Zack. And then set Yuffie on him, because I'm one of those freaks who actually like her.

Will ramble more later.
