Title:  Envy

Summary:  the prompt was Envy.  And one of these days I'm going to be able to write something that's MORE than 100 words long.  But hey, even 100 words is longer than I've managed for a long time so I'll take it!  Triumph doesn't mean lack of tragedy.

The way the sun heats your hair.  The way the rain chills your skin.  The smell of something delicious cooking.  Honest dirt under your fingernails.  A hard day’s work well done.   A place you made all your own.   A ride on the Highwind.  The places you’ve seen.  The chance to revisit them any time you want.  Pictures drawn by children with stumpy crayons and full hearts.  Faces of friends.   Hands that reach for you at the end of the day.  Finally having everything you want, everything you always wanted.  Laughing.  Crying. Living.  Dying.  From the Lifestream…  how I envy you.

so, today is [livejournal.com profile] sorrowsflower 's birthday.  She's been working her tail off as at the hospital lately and if how she manages that level of stress and dedication I'll never know.  But she's amazing and frazzled and it's her birthday - which means presents!  Happy birthday, sweetheart.  I wanted to give you something sweet and peaceful and I hope this helps.

His world

He watches the rain
Not through the glass of the window
But instead he watches its reflection
Against her pale skin as she sleeps.

He watches the sun
Not with eyes on the sky
But instead he watches the way it
Catches in her hair when she turns suddenly to look at him.

He watches the moon
Not by the shadows it casts on the wooden floor once the lights are gone
But instead he watches it fill the hollows
Of her collarbone and wonders if trapped light has a taste.

He watches the world
Not by the rushing blur it gives him as it unwinds in front of his eyes
But instead he watches it in every shade and shadow and point of light
That shows over her quietly expressive face.

It's amazing what you find when you type 'Cloud Tifa' into the search engine.  Yesterday I found the strangest story by [livejournal.com profile] danchekker .  It's a pairing - and a story - I never would have thought of in a hundred years.  But - it works.  It's so well done that it works.

Who knew Rufus Shinra and Yuffie could make a cute couple?  And in an entirely non-crackish way?

Two Years, Fifteen Days

I had so much fun with everyone guessing at who was who in the game.  Here's the official list and we'll see how well I did at representing everyone.

Swift – Reno

Mace – Yuffie

Black – Zack

White – Sephiroth

Lily - Tseng

Tifa’s fiancée - Rude

Terrorists – Yazoo, Loz, Kadaj (with Kadaj being the one inside the computer)

and congrats to everyone that figured out the inside joke that 'Steve' and 'Ayumi' are the English and Japanese voice actors for Cloud and Tifa respectively. ;)

so, for once, I'm actually early instead of late about this but tomorrow's going to be crazy for me and I didn't want to miss wishing [livejournal.com profile] stairstothe7th  a happy birthday!!  So - happy birthday, my sweet and precious friend.  I hope you like the gift.  I thought you need more Zack.

so it's the start of another year in my travels around this planet and I wasn't quite sure how I felt about it as it approached really.  Last year was a pretty wild ride in a weird kind of way.  A lot of it was spent rearranging things I'd thought were pretty set and tackling things (or being tackled) from a whole new angle.  All in all it was a good year... but an uncomfortable one and there are still some things that started rolling during it that aren't done rolling yet. 

And then you all showed up with your verbal snuggles like a rainstorm and totally buried me in affection.  Being reminded that I was important enough to be  remembered and that I was that loved... it's changed the way the upcoming year's coming in and I'm really liking the new view of it.  So thank you to everyone that took the time to let me know I was precious whether here, or through my email or just with their thoughts.  It's changed both the way I'm going into this next year and this next year itself.  Thank you for that.  Thank you more than I can say.

And, to share the wealth because the best part of getting new toys is sharing them with others - two new fics for you!  My beloved [livejournal.com profile] fenikkusuken pulled together with her bunnies from the hutch and brought in summer with the kind of heat that you don't mind at all with her story windswept.  And a new addition to my 'Must.  Read.  Immediately!' list comes in from [livejournal.com profile] lr_darkeyes92 with the kind of wonderful 'how it all started - again' that I will never get tired of reading -  exclusive. Both are really melt your bones sweet with their own tangs of solid Cloti goodness that remind you why we love this pairing so and are definite Must Reads.  Make sure you leave them plenty of juicy reviews because that will hopefully encourage them to Do It Again!  (cause there's never enough Cloti) ;)

On top of that all - happy, happy, happy day, Holly! 

Thanks, my much loved and adored, crazy, wonderful, large-hearted sweetheart friends.  You've given me an awesome birthday and a new year to look forward to.  Rock on.

I know I'm not the only one looking for good FFVII fic.  And so I figured - hey, share what ya got!  Here's my latest finds.

For those looking for a good general FFVII fic, I'd like to recommend Elemental by [livejournal.com profile] silvr_dagger .  Just ran across it on IJ and traced it back to LJ.  Beautiful character study of the women of FFVII - and yep, Jessie was included. 

And of course for anyone that hasn't already, you need to head over to [livejournal.com profile] fenikkusuken and read - well, all of her FFVII stuff but here's a link to a Dissidia 012 inspired one.  Part 1 and Part 2

Hope it helps feed the need ;)  Enjoy!

So - I have these dreams.  Most nights in fact.  It's a sign of how my writing is or isn't coming along and it's pathetic to say but I haven't been dreaming lately.  Anyway, they're long, wonderful, detailed dreams.  A couple of months ago I had this one and wrote it down.  Good luck with it.
