Hmm... (beware the "hmm...", it's me about to start playing with the bunny again!)

Apparently it's not a plotbunny any more. According to forgottenlover, it's mutated into a full-blown plot-chocobo. ::scowl:: And you're feeding it Sylkis greens and Zeio nuts, damn it!

Two thousand years down the line, the too-pacific-for-it's-own-good cetra virus is all but gone and only has one live carrier left... and a mako fountain that sustains a pure strain of it. Vincent got injected with the pure strain 30 years ago and manifested monsters. Now, somehow, the strain has got into new carriers and poking by Hojo has woken it...

So Aeris is the carrier of the pacific strain, while the wild strain is in Vincent, Zack and Cloud.


Ooooo... I like this idea of two different Cetra strains -- a pacific, nurturing one and an aggressive, predatory one. ^___^

Either way, the idea of an internal fight going on in Seph's body (with probably an accompanying halucinatory fight between Jenova and Aeris) is an interesting image.

Yup, yup!

Oh lovely! I do like Valenwind!

I wasn't such a big fan of Cid/Vin (or vice versa) in the beginning, but I've grown to like it. Personally, it works much better for me in text than in pictures (e.g., doujinshi).

I really should go back and read Venus Gospel.

Me, too. ::starts rummaging around her files::

Anyway, I am hugely fond of dragoon/dragon connections myself, my little pet AU, Guardianverse, has that dragoon = "dragon knight" = Knight of Bahamut, and Kain Highwind, due to a lifelong association with Bahamut, becomes a dragon spirit in Bahamut's service, and two worlds later is Neo Bahamut, and the world after that is the defacto leader of the GFs (yes, as in FF8).

::perks up multiple pairs of ears:: Hm, I should really go check this out. ^_^

Yeah Doujinshi often does all the things that make discerning fanfic readers cringe - like the whole seme/uke dynamic is all too common. Goodfic - at least goodfic in the western fandom - try to actually make the characters real, instead of stereotypes.

There's not much of it, and most of what exists outside my head is more focused on Griever than the other GFs (the core principal of Guardianverse is that Griever is a future version of Squall who hitches a ride back in time in Squall's head and is the eventual cause of Squall becoming a GF). A great deal of the backstories of the other GFs are still stuck in my head because I have trouble coming up with the words to frame the ideas. That's probably the biggest reason I don't write much - I have plenty of ideas but getting them down into an actual story is dreadfully hard.

Some doujinshi are great, but too many make the uke (especially in Cloud's case) so wimpy, weepy, and/or literally childish, it makes my teeth hurt.

Alas, I know that feeling. There's so much COI-verse floating around in my head, it's not funny. And now THIS plot... thingie is staking a claim to its own patch of territory. "Construction Beginning Soon!!!"

Oh don't I know that feeling! XD The Griever-bunny - the plotbunny behind Guardianverse - has staked quite an expansive plot in my head and gladly pounces on anything pretty it can turn it's way. A few weeks ago I was trying to describe a couple of figures from a dream in terms of their looks but the Griever-bunny pounced that and decided the GFs had to take a trip to Ivalice just so Griever had the chance to seduce Basch, and then there's the whole Kain/Cloud relationship which is ultimately the lion-bunny's fault too, since it also pounced on my FF4 threesome - Kain/Cecil/Rosa - and decided Cloud is kind-of Cecil's reincarnation.
