Hello, everyone! Meant to toss up a post sooner but traveling and work and gosh oh gosh.

We are down to the wire! Fanworks will go live TOMORROW, April 28 (probably around 9 p.m. ET or whenever my plane lands and I get home).

This means that your fanworks have to be ready for the spotlight--beta'ed, complete, perfected and refined, so everyone gets a fabulous gift.

For those of you on top of your shit and find yourself having a bit of free time, check out Dear Creator letters and create something for the Ante Up Scramble! The awesome part about treats is not only that it's an extra surprise for someone but there are no minimum size requirements. So gift a mini-picspam of those sexy Losers in suits or a podfic of someone's favorite drabble or share a mini-fanmix that personifies Jensen's love of crossbows.

So, on my fifth (!!!) rewatch of the show, I capped most of the episodes. I spent a lot of time on 4-10, because that's when I really dedicated myself to doing it, but I took a few from other episodes. I hope that no one will be disappointed by these if I didn't get enough of a favourite character, or in Yurio's case, I tried, but he's really always angry or just couldn't get good looks of him.

I tried to separate these by episode, but I did all the capping on my tablet, so I may have accidentally misfiled a cap or three, please forgive me!

Goodnight’s perspective of the first fight in Rose Creek.
And of what comes after the second.
He never considered himself a man of great godliness. Not really. Although it's not something looked kindly upon in the god-fearing South, he believes in neither heaven nor hell. If he ever did, then this belief is now buried in a tattered cloth, dyed blood-red and midnight-blue, stars the colour of bones running across. But there's two things Goodnight Robicheaux knows for certain...

'The noise that comes from Billy Rocks was not something Red ever wishes to hear again. He’s heard bloodthirsty battle cries that chill your bones, he’s heard dying screams and wailing women, even the sobs of a mother were nothing to the heartbreaking gushes of anguish that were escaping Billy’s lips.'

Goodnight Robicheaux never came back to the battle, but he did fight to the death.

rionaleonhart: final fantasy xiii: lightning pays intense attention to you. (speak carefully)
[personal profile] rionaleonhart
The final boss of Final Fantasy VI was a nightmare. He kept killing people in one hit! He kept muting my entire party, and I was quickly running out of items to cure it! (It's possible I didn't prepare very well.) I was convinced for a while that I was going to lose, and I'd have to fight through that entire sequence of pre-final-boss bosses again. But I made it! If the fight had gone on for a couple more minutes, I'd have been doomed.

So, yes, I finished Final Fantasy VI! I'm fairly certain I snapped this game up when it first became available in the UK, back in early 2002, so it took me, er, fifteen years and two copies. But I got there! And I wrote a fic, so revisiting this game was a highly successful endeavour. Even if it landed me with a new rarepair.

(At the ending, on the airship, there's a bit where Edgar tries to flirt with Celes, and she walks off to stand next to Sabin instead. I'M JUST SAYING.)

I'm starting to spot a pattern in some of my pairings: two people are part of the same group of friends. They're not close friends - they don't necessarily spend time alone together - but they move in the same circles. The group goes through some major, traumatic experiences. These two find themselves isolated, with only each other, having lost contact with the rest of their friends. I start 'shipping it immediately. It happened with Celes/Sabin, and with Mike/Sam in Until Dawn. I think my fondness for Hope/Serah in Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes from the same place; they're not alone, but they've lost touch with everyone who really knows what they've been through.

Even if Celes/Sabin is what really caught my attention on this playthrough, I also have a slight fondness for Celes/Locke, and Celes/Terra, and Leo/Terra, and everyone just cuddling in a big pile, including the yeti.

I've criticised some aspects of this game, but it has a huge amount of charm. The cast is delightful, and the tiny sprites are surprisingly expressive, and the battle system is one of the best from the ATB era; all the different battle abilities do mean that characters have wildly varying levels of usefulness, but they also make things varied and fun!

My preferred team was Celes, Locke, Edgar and Sabin, although I'd have swapped Edgar out for Terra if I wanted it to be a team of my four favourite characters. The Tools function was too useful to give up! Plus I liked the idea of the brothers fighting side by side.

Celes is the best. I wouldn't have stood a chance without her in the final battle.

Tomorrow I head to the office and I'm already behind on emails and comment replies. o_o At least I got a decent chunk of work done today, and spent the latter half of the evening curled up with The Obelisk Gate and Jinksy.

In lieu of a real post, linkspam.

Fannish/Geeky Things

I've yet to read or see any of The Expanse, but for those who have, [ profile] kayim just launched [ profile] rocinante.

Fox is bringing us another round of The X-Files (ten episodes this time). I... I don't think I can do this again. I'll keep an ear out and see what those who do watch it think, and I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised, but after how appallingly awful last year's new eps. were, I doubt I'll be touching this without some strong recommendations.

From that link, I skimmed through "Fall TV pilots 2017: The full list". Let's see. I assume I'll give Inhumans a try (barring Iron Fist levels of nearly everyone recoiling in horror as soon as the advance reviews/reactions started); S.W.A.T. doesn't sound like my thing, but FYI for Criminal Minds fans, Shemar Moore's headlining it (and EW staff writer, your blurb is literally two sentences. How did no one notice that the first sentence begins with "Inspired by the film of the same name" and the second sentence, in its entirety, reads "Inspired by the film of the same name"?); Alan Cumming being the lead in Instinct could be enough to tempt me into giving that a shot, although it likewise doesn't really sound up my alley; Untitled Marvel Action-Adventure Series stars Amy Acker, so that's a no-brainer for me; and Reverie has Sarah Shahi and sounds potentially interesting (Sendhil Ramamurthy is in the cast too, if that's of interest).
