edenfalling: headshot of a raccoon, looking left (raccoon)
This story is set about ten years before main [livejournal.com profile] mercverse canon, insofar as this AU can be said to have any canon. :-) So. "Two Guys and a Girl," in which I bend, staple, and otherwise mutilate normal game canon involving trips to Nibelheim, because seriously, what's the point of crack AUs if you can't play around like this?

Edited 2/4/08, because the version first posted was the rough draft, which I put up mostly so I wouldn't have to eat my scarf for delaying yet another day. *grin* The new version still isn't great literature, but it's a bit less embarrassingly awkward.

I may write a brief epilogue set a few years later, but then again, I have a lot of other things to work on, so don't hold your breath. Julian Silverberg is a reference to [livejournal.com profile] chofi's fic here; I know nothing of Suikoden or how she intended to use him, but this seemed reasonable to me. Zack's issues with duels (and the trouble they caused at court) are mentioned in several other fics.

You know, that wasn't quite how I thought that meeting/conversation would go, but once I got past the initial 200-500 words, the scene more or less wrote itself. And it does give me a lot of interesting stuff to play around with in chapter 9, so I think, all in all, it worked out.

...

Anyway, moving on. It's been snowing off and on all day today. I am bundled up in my long winter jacket and my scarf, which does not make me happy, and doesn't keep my feet warm, either. :-(

I want spring back!

Anyway, back in real life, my friend Andrew visited on Sunday. He was in Ithaca because his sister (who I think attends IC?) was performing in two concerts this past weekend, and I had some free time before work on Sunday afternoon/evening, so he dropped by my apartment and we hung out for a couple hours.

We're both terrible at correspondence, so these occasional visits are about the only contact we have. I should fix that, I really should. After all, how hard is it to send an email once a month or so?

*makes preemptive New Year's resolution to email casual yet distant friends more often*

And by 'more often,' I mean 'at all'

My new writing goals:

1. Finish chapter 9 of "Guardian" and chapter 10 of "Lemonade" by Christmas.

2. Finish "Secrets" by my birthday. (Backup plan: finish it by my sister's birthday. Backup of the backup, finish it by the story's 5-year anniversary. Because I have been working on "Secrets" for WAY TOO LONG NOW, and it's getting very embarrassing not to have it done already.)

3. Finish "Undertow" by New Year's.

4. Come up with some sort of ending to "Strange Likenesses" by my birthday, because I don't want to delete it from the internet, but having a permanently unfinished story out there is going to itch like fire at the back of my mind.

Somehow I doubt I'll reach all these goals, but I think having publicly stated them, I'll be a bit more motivated to show some sort of progress.
