I am a slow writer. Case in point: My OTP for Star Ocean 2 for years was Rena x Noel, and yet I've only recently managed to actually write anything about their relationship.

Three ficlets. All were written for [community profile] fic_promptly.

Title: Social Jungle
At a dance. Five-sentence fic.

Title: Adaptation
"He's a different man in the forest, when no one else is around." Drabble.

Title: Pets
They end up taking in a lot of animals together.

8. What is one thing that bothers you about your fandom?

Well, they're both fairly small. That has its advantages and disadvantages.

Other than that...

Star Ocean 2:

Very minor PA spoilers - Marze )

Dragon Quest VIII:

All I can think of is my usual mild irritation at the lack of fic and fanworks about Yangus in general, and him with Red in particular. I mean, I get it, everyone wants to ship the pretty people, but I wish there was more about his devotion to the Hero, and maybe about him and Red getting their affairs in order at last.

7.Give backstory for a minor character.

I'll start with Star Ocean 2, because that's the one that I already have some ideas about. DQ8 is going to take a while longer.

Minor PA spoilers - Yul PAs in Harley )

Um, okay. If I can think of any.

5.Write a review of the most recent episode you’ve seen/chapter you’ve read/particular scene.

I could do scenes, I suppose. But I think I'll just do a quick, mostly spoiler-free review of each game.

4.What is one pairing you hate and why?

Hate is a strong word. But there are a few that I'm completely not interested in, in any sense.

Star Ocean 2:

I've gone on about Claude/Rena before, and I know that [personal profile] stealth_noodle has already seen it, so I'll talk about the other two NoTPs I have for this game. Ironically, they're the closest to canon that this game gets besides Claude/Rena.

Ashton/Precis: Read more... )

Opera/Ernest: Read more... )

Dragon Quest 8:

I don't care for Marcello/Angelo.

3.What is your current OTP and why?

Star Ocean 2:
Tough call. I multiship like crazy in this fandom; it lends itself to that, because of the multiple endings and PA system. Finding out how various characters interact with each other is half the fun.

But if I had to choose one now, I'd go with Rena/Precis.

Dragon Quest VIII:
My OTP in this game has always, always been Yangus/Red.

2.If you, AS YOURSELF, were to be written in as a character how would you be integrated into the storyline?

I'm not good at this question. I can never see myself as a PC.

Star Ocean 2:
I'd like to think I'd be a researcher either in Lacour or Linga. Or maybe both, figuring how to make machines work with Symbology.

Dragon Quest 8:
...I have absolutely no idea where I'd fit into a world like that. Maybe I was studying magic? A former student of the guy that gets killed at the beginning of the game, and so maybe I know something about him and his former student.

1. How did you get into this fandom?

Relatively short answers, because I am tired. I'll stick to requests already made for now (Star Ocean 2 and Dragon Quest VIII,) but if anyone has any other requests, make them in the comments and I'll set them aside for later.

Attempting to fill some old [community profile] sidequest prompts, since reading some of [personal profile] vieralynn's posts and commentary reminded me of it.

Title: Harbinger
Fandom: Star Ocean 2
Characters: Dr. Lantis, Gabriel
Summary: Gabriel is his messenger.
Notes: Huge Secret File spoilers. It won't make much sense if you haven't read them, seriously. This was possibly going to be part of a larger story about Dr. Lantis way back in the day, but I never got anywhere with it.
Prompt: Dr. Lantis/Gabriel: Defining a Purpose - "You are the embodiment of ruthless power, indomitable will and furious vengeance."

wallwalker: Venetian mask, dark purple with gold gilding. (where the bohemians gather)

Title: No Worries
Fandom: Star Ocean 2
Characters: Ashton/Noel
Summary: It's hard for Ashton to worry with Noel around, even when he knows that he should.
Notes: Written for [community profile] fic_promptly. Set after their ending, which is supposed to be a friendship ending but to me is easy to see as romantic. Also posted on AO3.

Oops. I hadn't forgotten to write these, but I forgot to post them here. (Also, I'm up to #94; that means I'm done with the actual prompts, and don't really know what to write for the last four or five AC entries. But that's another problem.)

List of all prompts. (The challenge was originally meant for one set of characters, but... no. I can't. That's why I'm doing this unofficially.)




Prompt #21: Moving.

Day 10

Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you. (The recs from Day 1 might be a good place to start!) Leave a comment in this post saying you did it.


Well, if I'm going to ask for people to use symmetrinas as a fanwork style, I might as well start it off.

Author: Wallwalker
Fandom: Star Ocean 2
Rating: Teen and up
Characters: Opera/Celine (vague mentions of Claude/Chisato and past Ernest/Opera)
Word Count: 5362
Content Notes: None. Just fluff and adventures and social parties, not necessarily in that order.
Other Notes: For [personal profile] gamera on [community profile] yuri_challenge. Essentially it's a "5 Things" fic that doesn't include the sixth thing that they usually include. I had a lot of fun with this one!

I want to do a more general post on my tendency to like non-canon pairings. But this is a good way to demonstrate it, so I'll start with this. It's sort of related to this post I made a while ago, about the ladies in SO2 and how they're portrayed.

Star Ocean: The Second Story (and its remake, Second Evolution) is one of my favorite games ever, and between the two versions I think I've finished it seven or eight times. It's also one of the games where this particular tendency definitely shows. Out of all of the possible couples in this game, I anti-ship only two of them, and one of them - Claude/Rena - is the primary canon pairing in the game.

Yeah, I go on and on about this one. )

(tl;dr - I like Claude and Rena individually and would probably like the couple better if it hadn't been written in a way that I dislike.)
