    Summary

    Life beyond SeeD can be difficult; a change of scenery could be just what is needed. After Squall and Rinoa move to Timber, it's important to keep in contact with old friends, because only they can understand exactly what you’re dealing with...an unemployed commander with way too much time on his hands. Thankfully, he finds a job...and then it just gets plain weird.

    These are a series of letters exchanged between Rinoa and Selphie detailing life with their respective boyfriends, photographs included. It spans from the untimely loss of a beloved ponytail, to the meeting of other video game idols - in which expectations fall a little 'short.'

    Letter Seven: The Squall and Rinoa action figures ride several trains and end up in Arizona.
    Squall makes an unfortunate mistake that angers an entire state. Thankfully, among the turmoil, the action figures make a detour to the Grand Canyon. Also an accidental trip to "The Bean" in Chicago leads to a photo op. Thanks fellow FFVIII author Ronin-ai for her help; its better doing this randomness with fandom friends!

     Disclaimer: No action figures were harmed in the making of this, although a few egos may have been bruised.

    Summary

    It's the fall that defines your path. It's how you continue after the fall that defines who you are. In one second, a bullet changed everything. If the words you confessed weren't meant to be heard, would it be enough to erase the past?

    Summary

    What would happen if the hero was to fail? What if there wasn't a happily ever after - just an 'ever after' that focused on one mistake? He was one minute too late…one minute that would haunt him forever. For seven years, she remained frozen in time...

    Nobody ever told Squall he was her knight; it was better that way (so they said). Nobody told Rinoa being unsealed would hurt this much (life moved on; he moved on). Nobody told him when Esthar managed to safely free her (she wouldn’t let them). He was now Trabia’s Headmaster; he was happy (she thought). A story of true love, of fate, and all that lies in between… Co-written with ffnet's Wayward Tempest

    January 26th, 2013 I've gone back into the story, incorporating ten pieces of fan art/fan-made graphics throughout. Thank you for all those who have taken the time to create something.

    Summary

    A love story in reverse (...just not theirs.) It started with a book; it ended with tradition. Before the story, there was their story - Julia, Laguna, and the "Castle in the Sky" that was destined to remain rooted firmly in the earth.

    Summary

    Their castles were no longer floating in the sky, but grounded in the sand. Twelve years ago, fate had given them a second chance. Ten years ago, they exchanged vows; six years ago, their daughter had been born - time changes, but not everything. Follow-up to "Castles in the Sky."

    Summary

    Sometimes there are no words and, in this case, that probably would have been a good thing. Originally posted on ffnet in 2001, these were some hopefully humorous observations. Questions, answers, and the unveiling of the secret infomercial-pyramid-scheme of Norg and Seifer. It has just about everything that you *never* wanted to know about Final Fantasy VIII.
