    Summary

    He recalled being told stories by his grandfather who'd retired to a quiet, merchant life, after serving the crown in the Dalmascan Civil War years before his father was even born. About the Old Order. Protecting King Raminas and his progeny.( He'd had the ear of the King as his closest friend. And then he'd left.)

    And his father followed the same, inspired by his father-in-law, retiring at 30 when his brother was born, and then the plague took his parents both.
    His brother with all his might followed to protect not his homeland for the sake of his King, but for the sake of the family, he'd left behind him.

    And their Grandfather took up a new mantle as Dalmasca set down its arms. Old Dalan was his name, and his favored couriers were Vaan and Penelo.

    Vaan was the son of a Knight of the Old Order. The Blood of the Old Order ran thick in his veins. Rabanastre had fallen, and with it, any need or want to rebuild the Old Order. Vossler could try and persuade him all he liked.

    Dalan had taught him better.

    The sky is an awfully big place. Above, below, and within it, they find each other in ways that pull like a perfect and terrible weakness to have.

    Summary

    In Vaan’s trademark cockatrice-scritch excuse for handwriting, the note reads something damnably simple:

    ❝ -- Something more valuable: a little treasure from Lhusu. I await in Bhujerba.
    PS - open this in private, would you? -- ❞

    Summary

    While hanging lifelessly on the chair's edge, the harness just looks like a tangle of leather straps, nonsensical and hectic. But Vaan knows the mechanism by now, of its twists and loops, and as he slides into its hold, the mess unfurls itself into a beautiful display of bold thick lines down the expanse of his body. The sight makes Balthier’s breath leave him. He wants more.

    Summary

    Wrapped in the clamor of The Sandsea late one night, Balthier takes time to reflect upon the very merry band of fools he's journeyed with thus far. The evening progresses into something far more educational than he planned.

    All in all, that doesn't end up being a bad thing.

    (sequel on hiatus)

    Summary

    Penelo fills her shadestone until it’s sated, pops it into her rucksack, and winks. “But sure, ask him to dance. At this rate, maybe in ten years you might hold hands and in twenty, you might even kiss.”

    Vaan watches her prance off, and only catches up when he’s made up his mind. Three (crack)drabbles that take place before, during and after Mirage.

    Summary

    There are two things Balthier had to learn the hard way: One, do not ever take free samples from Rabanastran street vendors after dark. And two, after all this time, Vaan is far more self-aware than he's given the boy credit for.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there were two boys who were deeply in love, but lived worlds away from each other. One was shy and innocent, the other was sweet and fearless. While the two may have seemed like polar opposites (and acted like it sometimes), they shared a similar love for a certain video game. Now, what would happen should these two find themselves lost in the world of their favorite game? That is where our story begins…
