Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Dissidia, hurray! ... or rather, Dissidia Ho-Yay!
I just got my greedy claws on Dissidia (US version) and just finished Destiny Story VII (i.e., Cloud's Story).

Yes, I know that I'm totally into the FFVII Ho-Yay. But seriously, the Dissidia cutscenes between Cloud and Sephiroth are so... delicious from the Ho-Yay (or more specifically, the Foe-Yay) POV. Mere subtext between Sephiroth and Cloud? Who are you trying to kid!?

Now admittedly, Cloud and Sephiroth's characterizations seem to be more from Kingdom Hearts than FFVII, but hell, -I'm- not complaining.

Sephiroth, you smug sexy manipulative obsessive bastard. ::drool::
Poor Cloud, so desperately in denial. ::evil smirk::

Damn, when is the museum going to unlock so I can rewatch the cutscenes? ::fidgets impatiently::

Current Mood: devious devious

23 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Oh yes. I lost the last battle because I was too busy grinning and giggling like a fool from their foreplay pre-battle speech.

The same thing (i.e., screwing up the boss fight between Cloud and Sephiroth) would've happened to me, too... except for my blatant cheating. Infinite HP code, I love you! ::hugs hacked PSP::

Argh! TvTropes!
... See you in about a week. ;p

HAHAHAH I know. The funny thing is that "Ho Yay" sounds a lot like a Chinese exclamation for "AWESOME!!!"

Really? Now that is seriously HO YAY!!! XD

Foe Yay indeed... Sephiroth is crushing on Cloud so hard, it's hilarious to watch.

::maniacal grin::

Definitely more of a Kingdom Hearts Sephy-Cloud dynamic here, but....

Yeah, I'm still around, although constantly distracted and harried.

Playing Dissidia is making my Feral-verse muses restless. ::peers around nervously::

Have your muses ever pestered you mercilessly about a particular future scene? I have one in Aerith's church with Cloud, Zack, Aerith, AND Sephiroth involved -- yeah, much earlier in the story than I expected!

The only problem is that I have to get Cloud and his friends out of Rocket Town and to the City of the Ancients, THEN get them back to Midgar first! ::gnashes teeth::

Welcome back! Was wondering if you were still alive :)
madamhydra From: madamhydra Date: September 4th, 2009 10:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I'm alive and slithering about in the shadows... if considerably distracted by other hobbies (e.g., video games, knitting, etc.) and Real Life(tm). ::sigh::

I think I unlocked the museum after playing 2 of the story modes? I did 4 and 7.

I can't get enough of useing Seph in his *ahem* alternate costume to beat the snot out of Tidus :)
madamhydra From: madamhydra Date: September 4th, 2009 10:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup, I unlocked the museum almost immediately after I finished posting. Yes, yes, I'm an impatient fan-hydra. :P

I do love Cloud's AC outfit. ::purr::

Hydra lives! Great to see you. I about gleed right out of my seat when I got an update for your journal in my inbox. I haven't gotten to play this one yet...it sounds awesome.

It's also good to remember to log out of RPG journals before you try to respond to a post if you want the person you're commenting at to have any idea who you are...

I'm glad to know that people still remember me, considering the way I've been hibernating. ::sheepish grin::

Seriously, I got a PSP just to play Crisis Core (ZACK!!!!). Dissidia is just a bonus, but it's quite fun.

Of course, being hopelessly reflex-challenged AND having a very low frustration threshold, I cheat shamelessly just so I can watch the cutscenes and play around with all the pretty bishies.

Aside from Cloud and Sephiroth, I've always had a serious fondness for Zidane and Kuja, to the point of fanfic -- no, not together. ::ducks shower of rotten vegetables:: But from Dissidia, I'm developing a distinct aesthetic appreciating for The Emperor and Cecil. ^_-

Of course we remember you....How could we forget, you've left us hanging on the edge of a cliff for a very long time.

....I know what you mean about buying the PSP just for CC...I haven't picked up Dissidia yet...I should. I should actually take the Crap SE RPG for the 360 and trade it for Dissidia....Zidane and Kuja...I adore them. I adore them in the wonderful Brotherly way that just makes me want to cooo....And Squall's in there too, I like him and his Emoness

Must get my PSP fixed or a new one since this is one of the games I MUST have right next to Persona and Persona 3 PSP version if it comes to the US.

and OMG sooo happy to have seen an update from you. I am still loving your GW stories and wish to read more of the one that got me hooked onto you. *Hugs*

Dissidia is really quite fun, aside from all the fan-service. But it's all the Final Fantasy touches that adds that special touch.

It's definitely worth it. ^_^

Hey, I recently stumbled upon this fic: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3745095/1/Leader_of_the_Pack. It reminded me of your feral-verse! As in, Cloud would have been royally pissed off at a bunch of humans hurting Nanaki, because Nanaki used to belong to him and he considered himself at least partially responsible for the wellbeing of AVALANCHE members. Tifa future "plight", on the other hand, wouldn't set off the same instincts because A)it's his mate doing it; B)she's not being seriously hurt and C)she chose it. He does kind of ask for Zack not to hurt her when they first meet again - alpha instincts at work? Just a thought!

Hoping to hear more from you soon,

I feel it necessary to tell you that this post alone spurred me into finally getting a PSP XD
I've had a hard couple of months between friends telling me to get a PSP and friends telling me to get a DS, and then I saw this post the day before Kingdom Hearts: 90210 came out. I thought, "If I get a DS I can play 90210! But if I get a PSP ... Dissidia". Naturally I then thought "CRISIS CORE!" followed by "GOOD LORD WHERE HAS MY FFVII FANGIRL BEEN HIDING ALL THIS TIME!?!??" and since then I have gone mad.

I am, however, very sad that the Lair crashes my browser -.- It's nothing personal, a very small amount of sites do it for no real reason. But I have Dissidia, I have Crisis Core, I have VII, and I don't have Conflicts of Interest! My canon is broken!

Hope you're having fun with Crisis Core and Dissidia. ^_^

Regarding my website, have you tried going directly to the main index page?


If that fails, most of my fics are available at fanfiction.net.

In fact I've vowed not to play CC until after an upcoming convention next week, which is the most painful thing of all. I made the mistake of playing the opening and GAH oh the pain, the pain.
I did however have the glory of playing Sephiroth in Arcade Mode, and revelled in not only Cloud x vs Sephiroth, but Sephiroth vs Sephiroth. Oh, good times ^o^

It's the index page that kills it, but again don't worry. Strange browser ^-^; IE handles it just fine!
