Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Sorry, chapter 6 took longer than I expected, but I had to do a fair bit of tweaking.

While hopefully not OOC, Cloud's reactions might appear a bit... skewed. Then again, in this fic, he IS majorly screwed up. ^_-

Enjoy!

Finally, a new chapter! I've gotten fed up with LiveJournal's character limit and the need to split my chapters for posting, so this chapter's significantly shorter than previous chapters.

Part 6 is also finished and just needs a few tweaks and proofreading before posting, so don't be surprised if another short chapter shows up in a day or two.

And here we go!

Just a short side story containing some background information for the COI Redux-verse that I cut from the main story. It's certainly not essential, but it provides some interesting hints and background for the main plot.

Heh. I cooked up yet another teaser as I'm nursing my aching hip. Yeah, one turns forty-something and the body becomes totally decreipt. *mutter*

WARNING: This particular teaser has hints of MAJOR plot spoilers.

'His opponent stood, calmly waiting for Rufus to make the first move.'Collapse )

Yet another teaser to let you guys know that I'm alive and still writing... or trying to, at least. The ongoing parental health crisis, Real Life(tm),... you get the drift. >_>

And now I've got a nasty case of sciatica (i.e., pinched nerve in the hip). *groan*

Regarding the teaser typical warnings apply -- very rough, plot SPOILERS, yadda-yadda. Enjoy.

::snivel:: The parental health crisis continues, frequently exacerbated by the patient's (expletive deleted) stubbornness... such as trying to check himself out of the hospital AMA ("against medical advice").

Argh.

I'm managing to get some writing done, but not nearly as much as I hoped.

Anyway, thanks for all the patience and support, my readers. Here's yet another random teaser for you, set at some vague point further on in the story.

It's the end of the fiscal year, with all its associated deadlines. It would be a stressful time under normal circumstances, but after the year I've head, with all the family-related health (and now psychological) issues, it's become truly horrible. ::stress-induced eyebrow twitching::

So September was basically a total wash writing-wise (although I managed to jolt down more notes on the outline).

However, just to let you guys knows that I'm still alive -- barely -- here's a small random teaser which makes reference to the events in SOLDIERs Just Wanna Have Fun.

Once October arrives, hopefully I can get back to the important stuff... like working on fic, damn it! :P

Ah, finally done with part 4. Whee.

The parental health crisis continues. At least it's doesn't seem to be getting worse. -_-

Soooo... tired.

As I mentioned before, the stuff of brain chips is not a complete ass-pull on my part -- I lifted that from Dirge of Cerberus (i.e., from the plot of multiplayer portion of DoC that never made it to the US). ^_^;; For those who are interested, you can find subtitled videos of the multiplayer game cutscenes on YouTube.

Ugh... what a hellish summer, what with the parental unit's prolonged health issues.... @_@ Otakon was my one good break, and then it was back to the grind again. Now I understand what they mean when they talk about 'caretaker fatigue'. ::sigh::

For the people interested in COI-Redux, don't worry -- chapter 4 is almost finished. It just needs proofing and a few tweaks. It should be up in the next day or two.

As for this fic, I posted it in 2006 directly on the Love Mode LJ-comm, so I decided to post a copy on my own LJ, just for completeness.
