    Summary

    After a near death experience brings him to a realm between life and the beyond, Hope Estheim is contracted by a strange entity to fight against creatures that prey on humans' life-force, in exchange for bringing him back to life. His partner in these efforts is the reserved, distant young woman known only as "Lightning," whose true motivations are a mystery to him, as are the intentions of the being that contracted them both. Will they ever be able to live freely or are they just puppets animated by a greater force, whose bodies will collapse once they are no longer useful? Only time will tell, and all they can do is hope. (HopeLight dark!fic. Includes supernatural, magical girl, and horror elements.)

    Summary

    From a prompt on Tumblr: "Hope and Lightning end up having to share the same hotel room and there’s only one bed. This is so cliched I know but it was the only thing I could think of atm XD" (Mild swearing. Post-LR, new world!fic.)

    Summary

    How else could the Phantom have found a way to his heart, apart from following in the footsteps that centuries of war and doubt had already tread? 'Unless I was half crazy to begin with.' That seemed possible. But not probable. There was a difference, an important one -- wasn't there? Hope didn't have an answer. He didn't know if he wanted one. (From a prompt on Tumblr: "Some hoperai phantom rose stuff? Cause i’m a masochist….")

    Summary

    A collection of one-shots created through request via Tumblr. Pretty much just Noel x Serah pairing stuff that ranges from angst to fluff. These are the edited versions of the requests, so there are some changes to content. Will be updating chapters as edits are completed (10 one-shots in total).

    Summary

    Post LR
    New name, same WTF? Fic.

    An inexperienced Noel is pleased to discover he is a natural born lover. His slightest touch thrusts his Yeul into ecstasy, a kiss sending her over the edge. Yet for some reason, they still haven’t taken the next step. Is there something the ex-Seeress is hiding from him?

    WARNING: Parts of this fic are VERY NSFW. We’re talking hardcore kink here, not for the faint of heart. We’re also dealing with a crack fic, something that should be taken with a grain of salt. So if you are easily offended or do not possesses a sense of humor, you may want to skip this fic.

    You have been warned.

    Summary

    “Fang looked at their joined hands, one pair clad in white lace, one pair covered in henna tattoos. The hands were as different as night and day, just like the women they belonged to. They had always been each other’s opposites, which was why fit together so perfectly.”
    Just a short, simple fanille wedding fic.

    Summary

    Lady Luck is a fickle bitch about these types of problems. Fang had pristine memories of what happened, but it just had to be that her better half was one of the few who were out of the loop.

    Summary

    "Lightning is pulling at her now, gently persuading her to let go, but Fang roars, meaningless curses and insults dripping from her lips, blood from an incision that drove too deep. This world does not exist, she thinks, digging her nails into Vanille's skin in an attempt to produce a response." Lightning Returns AU, in which the Soulsong goes ahead.

    Summary

    Things become... complicated as Serah and Chris are each ripped away from their own missions in life and thrown together against something that is simply too much for any normal person to be expected to handle. Their worlds are melting together, and faces from the past crop up to be dangled in front of them, out of reach. They stand together, ready to beat the darkness back.

    Summary

    "Do you remember the promise you made me?"

    Hope stops at the sudden question, puts down his pen, smiles at his research paper. “Which one?” he asks innocently (but they both know full well what she’s talking about), as he looks up at her.

    They consider their next step, after the end of Lightning Returns. Hope/Vanille. Hope- and Vanille-centric.

    Summary

    "She was always there, a flickering image in the corner of his eye. He knew the real Lightning was supposed to be trapped in Valhalla, but the phantom haunting him looked exactly like her. Even her voice was the same, whispering things to him night after night. The voice would echo through his mind during the day, turning his consciousness into a rose-colored mess." Pre-LR.
