AU challenge plot bunnies, hoooo!!!
Here I was, frantically trying to come up with an idea for my "Rufus and Turks" claim of the Roads Diverged challenge -- yes, I'm cutting it way too close, it being due just after Thanksgiving -- when I came to the realization that I'm a horrible, sadistic, E-VIL(tm) person....

FVII cast: So what's new about that?

Hydra: Hehehehehe....

FVII cast: O_o

Hydra: Oooh Cloud, dear? I've been plotting... emmm, thinking....

Cloud: But why me? Aren't you doing enough to me already!? ::whimper::

Hydra: Sorry, it was a choice between you and Rufus. And since someone else has already claimed you for the challenge, that means Rufus, basically by default, gets to be the main focus and protagonist of my challenge fic. ^__^

Rufus: ::sarcastically:: What an enthusiastic endorsement.

Cloud: ::whine:: But why not pick on Sephiroth!? He's got lots of practice in this sort of role!

Sephiroth: ::betrayed and wounded look:: Keep me out of this mess.

Hydra: True, but the whole purpose of this AU challenge is to put a different twist on things....

Cloud: ::muttering under breath:: Like you haven't been doing this all along in every one of your damn fics?

Hydra: Did you say something?

Cloud: ::guilty twitch::

Hydra: Anyway, this setup fits the source material for the crossover much better.

Zack: ::worried:: But hell, it's going to be dark and nasty!

Hydra: ::pats the Zack:: Yes, I know, but it really can't be helped in that regard. I'll make it up to you guys with warm fuzzies -- or would it be 'warm furries'? -- in Feral-verse.

Cloud: Why does Zack the one to get comforted and petted? He's not even going to BE in this fic! ::sulk::

Hydra: Habit, I suppose. Besides, Zacks aren't meant to be depressed and morose. Post-Nibelheim Clouds, on the other hand... well, I guess I'm just too used to seeing them that way.

Turks: ::reading source material:: Uh-oh... considering what happens to the buddies of the protagonist in the other series, this doesn't look good for us. NOT. AT. ALL.

Elena: I really don't want to end up as a charred bloody skeleton....

Rude: ....

Hydra: Unlike the source material, I'll do my best to keep you guys alive, intact, and sane. Really, I will.

Reno: Yeah, riiiight.

Tseng: I think this qualifies for extreme hazard pay.

Rufus: Already done.

Current Mood: devious unmitigated E-VIL

6 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Now this sounds really interesting. Can I ask about the other source material?

It's a spoiler, but since you ask...

The crossover source material is F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon). ^_^

Right, not something I'm familiar with. Thanks for the link though.

Yo! Long time no type. Though it sounds like the bunnies have kept you busy while you've been gaming. ^___^

Are you free at during the holiday? I've been hoping to do some beta'ing and evil plotting and brain storming. That and no one's been on lately, I'm starting to get lonely.

Yo, the mad gamer! Played gobs of Team Fortress 2, then got sidetracked into Painkiller: Overdose, then finally, I started playing F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate....

....then I realized that I had an AU challenge fic due in less than a week and I hadn't even come up with the damn plot! ::panicked thrashing::

And yes, I should be reasonably free over the holidays, at least during the evenings (except for Sunday). ^_^;;

Heh, sounds a lot like my last few weeks have been, but substitue all those games with Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, FF12 and Crisis Core.

I've got mine half done and at about 300 words. Yay! I'm hoping to get some time tomorrow after work to finish it up.

I don't know what the plan is for Thursday evening, we might be going to my aunt's house for desert, but in theory I should be back before 9pm. But I'll be home most other evenings.
