the infamous Final Fantasy VIII arc by Tenshi no Korin and llamajoy
Series: Final Fantasy VIII
Pairing: Squall/Seifer, Squall/Zell, Seifer/Fuu
Submitted by: drannoc
Rec ID: 00588
One continous storyline, both authors - this is a massive arc of sort of self-contained fics. As always, Tenshi and llamajoy write thoughful, poetic stories. A certain amount of action contrasts with backstage angst. Worth reading the 40+ (!) stories in this. And their stand-alones. And their humorfics. Hell, just read everything on their site. You'll be glad you did.

This is the first fiction in a continuing story. It tells the story of Seifer and Squall before the events of the War.

Well written and definitely worth checking out.

Final Fantasy VII (BC era)

Rose is a wonderful writer with a keen sense for suspense and story-building. A must-read.

The link brings you to a page where you can choose between reading the story with or without illustrations. I recommend the illustrated version, but be warned that the pics become less worksafe towards the end of the story.

From Advent Children, post-movie.

A series with only two completed installments so far, but those are so good they're really woth the read (plus no cliffhangers so they can be read alone).

" Reno knows what he wants. (Hot, toe-curling sex.) But what does Rude want?"

A steamingly hot, lovingly rendered story of two Turks getting together.

Rude-centric. "The eulogy of a Turk."

Terrifyingly and almost destructively well-written.

Living with Heart by DB2020
Series: Final Fantasy
Pairing: Laguna/Squall
Submitted by: DarkestDesire
Rec ID: 01386
Definately my favorite Laguna/Squall fic of all a time. A must read if you like the pairing. An angsty fic that deals with Squall's dark past and Cid's use for him in Garden. An attention grasping read from the very beginning, this is a fic that deals with very complex relationships between all of the characters involved and has enough political intrigue and mystery to make the plot line just as interesting as the pairing (if not even more so). Certainly worth the time it takes to read. Complete.

"Five years after the end of the game, Hojo is in an all-out war against the Planet and the ShinRa armies, led by now-general Cloud Strife. What will happen, when ShinRa makes a desperate decision to resurrect the very person who nearly killed them all?"

Majorly long, completed. Excruciatingly beautiful characterization, intricate plot, savage action scenes, deep psychological problems, and a scene involving Cloud dancing on a stripper pole.

Life Series by Sukunami
Series: Final Fantasy VIII
Pairing: Seifer/Squall
Submitted by: candi
Rec ID: 01694
This series of stories inspired me to buy a PlayStation and get into gaming, because I wanted to find out what the *real* characters were like. We learn in the game that Seifer and Squall were close friends in their forgotten childhood, and that subconsciously that close friendship is manifesting itself in their current adversarial relationship.

In the Life Series, Sukunami takes their lifelong friendship and turns it into a believable love relationship. She keeps Seifer and Squall beautifully in-character ... even with the added MPREG element! Isan, their son, is a wonderful OC character that I LOVED getting to know.

Go. Enjoy. I could not put these stories down. Sukunami is an excellent writer and her stories are always a good bet. Maybe you will be inspired to dust off that old Playstation and reintroduce yourself to Final Fantasy VIII!.

... Let me know if you liked this story! candi6312@yahoo.com

I just found this story arc again! How could I have forgotten it????
Wow, great story-telling. Overall the characterization is exceptionally well done, however Seifer*s personality is AMAZINGLY well-written.

The story takes place 4 years after the end of the game. In the aftermath of the Sorceress*s War, Seifer is understandably unpopular with the masses. There is a warrant out for his arrest, but since most people only knew him as the Sorceress*s Knight and not by his real name, he has been able to quietly rebuild his life working as an EMT in Galbadia.

Squall ... the savior of the world ... is not fairing as well. As the Commander of Balamb Garden and son to the President of Esthar (as well as getting all the credit for saving the planet from the sorceress), Squall seems to have everything he could ever want. But the responsibility and high expectations are too much for him to handle. He is spinning farther and farther out of control and deeper and deeper into depression. He ends up deliberately crashing his car in a drunken haze. EMTs are the first ones to the scene of the accident. Thus our two antagonists are reunited ... and our story begins.

There are three main stories in the arc: Hero, Happily Ever After and Once A Knight. In these stories, both characters are struggling with the after-effects from the Sorceress*s War. In a very real way, these once-enemies are the only ones who can truly understand what the other is going through, and they end up saving each other.

This is a story about angst, life-long friendship and committment.

I highly recommend it.
