So You Want to Write a Fanfic?

I’ve been asked by several people questions such as, “Where do you get your inspiration,” or, “Can you help me put together a story?” I’d like to address those questions here in the form of a Writer’s Guide. It certainly won’t be an end-all/be-all to writing as stories are as diverse as their authors. What I hope you, a varied group of potential writers, will get from this, is a firm foundation from which to customize your own thoughts and experiences. After all, this is simply the culmination of mine to this point.

Title: San d'Orian National Anthem
by Phree
* * * * *
I wrote the "lyrics" to San d'Oria's music finally (something I had been fiddling with ever since I started. Please let me know what you think and try singing along with them! The words follow along about the first half of the cycle and stop before it gets to the extended, mellow part which you could just consider be a fading out. Since writing this nation's, I kind of want to write the anthems to Tarutown and Lastok as well. I'll post those when I get 'em done!

Title: Naeo and Again:
Criteria:
Requested by: Naeo
Subjects: Naeo, Yekan, Hybra, and Phyree
Genre: Comedy
Setting: Purgonorgo Isle
* * * * *
A new day arose in the Federation of Windurst. Cool morning dew glistened on the savannah grass and palm trees. The fishing guild was bustling with fishers of all races vying for the best bait and gear. Over in the Waters district, a young male hume woke up and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. He arose, grabbed a towel, scratched his belly, and made his way to the washroom in the Holstry. He still smelled like an odd combination of saruta oranges and pond water from the day before. Before reaching the bathing stall, Naeo caught a glimpse of himself in a mirror. He jumped back in panic before realizing that the odd feature he caught was the goblin-looking coif he wore on his head.

Title: Farewell, Friends (1 of 2)
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subjects: Wintaru, Xan, Kingpopof, Tshayichu
Genre: Action Drama
Setting: Jueno and Tu'Lia
* * * * *
It was a cool and rainy night in Jeuno. Spring was on the verge of coming around so the wind and water besieging the majestic city carried a cold bite. Ducal guards on patrol tended to stick to covered alcoves and move only when they had to. The water had a way to find every open crevice in the metal and leather and chilled even the most stout of galkans to the bone...

Title: Farewell, Friends (2 of 2)
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subjects: Wintaru, Xan, Kingpopof, Tshayichu
Genre: Action Drama
Setting: Jueno and Tu'Lia
* * * * *
By now, Dr. Monberaux was both fully engrossed in the story and his work. The deft doctor’s nurse, Rosalyn, had come from her quarters and was assisting in the treatment and healing of the small mage’s abused body. Frankly, the other three were in bad shape as well and it was only by Altana’s Grace that they seemed to be determined to see their friend’s recovery through to the end...

Title: Teh Vs. WTF (1 of 3): Schism
Criteria:
Requested by: Wiryu
Subjects: Wiryu & Phyree
Genre: War
Setting: Teh Island
* * * * *
PREFACE

There is a corner of Vana'diel yet discovered, or at least small enough not to raise any eyebrows. This places is Teh Island. On Teh Island lies an old, classical city appropriately called Teh City. Teh people (or Tehans as they were known) were a diverse group of all the races which coexisted in stressed harmony as only an island nation can impose upon its people.


Title: Teh Vs. WTF (2 of 3): Battle Lines
Criteria:
Requested by: Wiryu
Subjects: Wiryu & Phyree
Genre: War
Setting: Teh Island
* * * * *
The room was somewhat cramped and rather musty. The only light it saw was from a few candles burning lazily on a worn wooden table. It almost seemed like a dungeon, though the only victims here were some crumbling books on ancient shelves. Three occupied chairs sat on one side of the table, and the other had one empty seat pulled close in anticipation of an unknown guest...

Title: Teh Vs. WTF (3 of 3): It Comes to This
Criteria:
Requested by: Wiryu
Subjects: Wiryu & Phyree
Genre: War
Setting: Teh Island
* * * * *
“I don’t like this. Today just doesn’t feel right.”

“There is no day better than the others to battle, Sister Phyree.”

“These are my own people we are about to fight, General.” Phyree’s use of Deedlit’s rank instead of the more familial title indicated her mood. The white-haired elvaan shifted and scoweled...


Title: Teh Vs. WTF (4 of 3): Glory Be Unto...
Criteria:
Requested by: Wiryu
Subjects: Wiryu & Phyree
Genre: War
Setting: Teh Island
* * * * *
"Sister Deedlit!" Zephie exclaimed as she saw the battered elvaan make her way toward the village.

"Zephie, is Phyree alright?"

"She told us to go ahead. Wiryu and some other elvaan woman were on our heels."

"Elvaan woman? What about Yekan?"


Title: Roll Dem Bones
Criteria:
Requested by: Stoopingtemper
Subjects: Stoopingtemper and Phyree
Genre: Action
Setting: Kuftal Tunnel
* * * * *
It was noontime. Not such an uncommon time, though this particular loaction falls into that category of commonality. The oasis inside Rabao was abuzz with bathers, water fetchers, a few fishers, and all manner of playful children that splashed in the cool waters. Desert winds powered windmills that pumped water to other dryer parts of the camp. Another form of aquatic conveyance was utilized in one corner of the pond, however. A white-furred hand dipped into the cool water and brought an ample gulp to thirsty lips.

Title: Fishin' Buddies
Criteria:
Requested by: Naeo
Subjects: Naeo and Phyree
Genre: Comedy
Setting: Windurst
* * * * *
It was 4:00 in the morning. The sun had yet to rise over the Sea of Bastore. The Cooking Guild's grocery shop was still an hour away from opening to the public. You could see your breath float away on the breeze and feel cold, fresh dew seep through your leather boots to chill your toes. This was the perfect morning to go fishing...

Title: Morale (OB-5)
Criteria:
Requested by: Eleusynia
Subjects: The Opaline Brigade (Yekan, Awias, Eleusynia)
Genre: Action
Setting: Jugner Forest and Carpenter's Landing
* * * * *
"Ladies," the portly hume greeted his white-clad conscripts, "thank you for coming."

Not long after Eleusynia had returned from her sojourn, it was back to work for the Opaline Brigade. The previous day Yekan had been scouting work leads and came across one which seemed fairly easy and bat-free...


Title: Naeo and Later
Criteria:
Requested by: Naeo
Subjects: Naeo & Aburame
Genre: Comedy
Setting: Windurst Waters
* * * * *
For any of you that own a pet, you will have undoubtedly noticed the universal truth that if you do not like it, it will be attracted to you. Without fail. It is then safe to extrapolate this type of logic to the hume world, for we all have animalistic tendencies that work behind the scenes. Perhaps it is an aura or a pheramone? Or maybe, just maybe, there is the strange attraction that grumpiness gives off that often binds when one wants to separate...

Title: Showdown with the Apollo' (1 of 3)
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subjects: Apollonious (featuring Shadowbuni & Noxx)
Genre: Sports Drama
Setting: Windurst
* * * * *
Apollonious stepped outside his small shop. A cool morning sea breeze blew gently down the main stretch of Lower Jeuno. The sun's brightening rays illuminated the shingle outside the humble clothier's establishment. "Apollonious's Apparels" it read in a fancy script. Apollo's bald head turned around and moved back inside the shop...

Title: Showdown with the Apollo' (2 of 3)
* * * * *
Deft feline hands threaded a needle on the first pass. From that point on, seeming magic occurred in front of Apollo’. He watched as over the course of an hour seeming useless scraps of cloth were given life. Noxx talked as she sewed and her student listened. Since giving up The Art to help his friend Shadowbuni (who had caused a ruckus in the white mage community and was banished from it), the pair drifted to Jeuno to seek a new life. While in the metropolitan town, he had heard that a famous weaver named Noxx was visiting. He went to see her work and was stunned by the quality...

Title: Showdown with the Apollo' (3 of 3)
* * * * *
So far the tournament had gone as planned. Chadeaux-Bunee smiled widely as his friend Apollonious won consecutive rounds of increasing difficulty. Each nation had been set up in a bracket system with the top four from Windurst, Bastok, San d’Oria, and Jeuno being given a spot in the final elimination rounds...

Title: Hearts & Stars (1 of 2) (OB-4)
Criteria:
Requested by: Eleusynia
Subjects: The Opaline Bridgade (Yekan, Eleusynia, Awias)
Genre: Romantic Dramedy
Setting: Sactuary of Zi'tah
* * * * *
Two sharply green eyes looked into hers. Two strong but gentle hands took hers. Two lips which normally barked control over a squad of elite Royal Knight troops now took pause and under the warm glow of a street lamp on a cool summer evening they confessed, "I love you, will you marry me?"...

Title: Hearts & Stars (2 of 2) (OB-4)
* * * * *
Damp leaves stuck to the black mage. She was on her knees, dirty, scared, confused, and utterly at the mercy of this elvaan. Her body was in overdrive and she couldn't think clearly. To the best of her knowledge she had never been this way in her entire life. In front of her was what seemed the elvaan in her dreams. Tall, strong, articulate, brave...and black hair! Beautiful black, flowing hair!...

Title: Move Along, Little Chocoboy
Criteria:
Requested by: Shard (sort of)
Subject(s): Shard
Genre: Western
Setting: Altepa Desert/Rabao
* * * * *
Altepa. A vast expanse of sand and rock. A crucible fer the noonday sun, 'n a cold grave for those what travel at night. More signifigant still, it's mah home...

Title: Allzvahl That Endzvhal (OB-3)
Criteria:
Requested by: Awias
Subject(s): The Opaline Brigade (Yekan, Awias, & Eleusynia)
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Setting: Castle Zvahl Baileys
* * * * *
One brisk night in Jeuno, three women sat around a table and were reliving their past relationships. This is normal enough for a bustling city with all its tables and women, but these three had the supernatural ability to, even in the most benign situations, topple anything from a government to Drogaroga’s Spine (for the third time) without even realizing what they had done. That’s right, these were not three ordinary women. It can’t even be said they are extraordinary. These three are just...trouble...

Title: Enter the Zephie
Criteria:
Requested by: Deedlitchan
Subject(s): Phyree, Deedlitchen, Zephie
Genre: Comedy
Setting: Windurst
* * * * *
It was high noon. The sun danced off the waves of the Sea of Bastore and scattered off it as if a thousand diamonds were tumbling on top of a rippling azure cloth. Port Windurst was bustling with fishermen, and an occasional explosion could be heard from the magic students practicing nearby. More noticeably, a steady rumbling was coming from above. The airship was coming in for another water landing!...

Title: No Tresspassing
Criteria:
Requested by: Deedlitchan
Subject(s): Deetlitchan & Phyree
Genre: Action
Setting: San d'oria
* * * * *
If you live in San d'Oria and aren't elvaan, well, you know there's going to be some...friction. For the parents of Phyree, this was all-too-true. They came from the crowded and dirty streets of Bastok to San d'Oria while Phyree was still being carried in her mother's womb. The mighty kingdom offered security and a pristine enviroment to raise a child...

Title: OBBCNM (OB-2)
Criteria:
Requested by: Lyliandra
Subject(s): The Opaline Bridgade (Yekan, Awias, Eleusynia)
Genre: Comedy/Action
Setting: Jueno & Ghelsba Outpost
* * * * *
The orc ran up the trail. His large mouth was agape in an effort to catch his breath. Hot on its heels were three figures in white, ghostly looking in the evening sunset light. Warchief Vatgit turned and ran more to his hut at the top of Ghelsba Outpost. As he passed by two guards, the warchief shouted for them to cover him. Dutifully they stood in the trail. Vatgit ran on, listening for the sounds of battle but eerily not receiving any...vv

Title: The Cauldron (1 of 3)
Criteria:
Requested by: Yekan
Subject(s): Noxx (and others)
Genre: Thriller
Setting: Ifrit's Cauldroon
* * * * *
Yekan activated the yellow pearl resting just inside her ear. "Hey are you guys ready? Come on I'm so anxious!" Lower Jeuno was bustling with commerce and socialization, spurred on by the beautiful weather that day.

"I'm coming Yekan, just gimme a moment to buy some stuff from the Auction House," reported Noxx. Yekan closed her eyes and focused on the pearl as it would give her a mental roster of who had it equipped and where they were...


Title: The Cauldron (2 of 3)
* * * * *
The picnic proceeded wonderfully. Everyone had changed into skimpy subligar and were running about and having fun. Xaeon made an analogy to a part of his figure being as if he had Peewee tucked in the tight cloth. Peewee retorted and went on about how Xaeon was always stuffing him in parts of his armor "for his own good". Everyone laughed. When all the meals had been eaten everyone was ready for more fun...

Title: The Cauldron (3 of 3)
* * * * *
Shard and Lyliandra had been frolicking the whole time together. Both still running around in their subligar, they found their way to an open outside area. It was getting dark now but the sky was illuminated above with lightning and with a red glow from below by the volcano. Lyliandra stopped at the mouth of the cave leading from the insides of the volcano and stared out...

Title: Rockin' It, Opaline Brigade Style (OB-1)
Criteria:
Requested by: Yekan
Subject(s): The Opaline Brigade (Yekan, Awias, & Eleusynia)
Genre: Comedy/Action
Setting: Valkurm Dunes & Selbina (chosen by Phyree)
* * * * *
Sand flew up with each step. Six feet were running through the sand, kicking up pufts of grit.

"Heels are so not meant for this," protested Awias. She stopped to empty a white boot. As she did, her body was pummeled with water. Following in hot pursuit was what seemed to be an animated piece of black cloth, a bedsheet floating consciously on the wind. A really ****** off bedsheet...


Title: A Voice From the Past (1 of 4)
Criteria:
Requested by: Rampart
Subject(s): Rampart, Yekan, & Phyree
Genre: Adventure/Romance
Setting: Ronfaure Region (including Manehseauri Forest)
* * * * *
Dreams. Unconscious desires? Cryptic messages from the past or possibly the future? Perhaps dreams are truly nothing more than random reflections living beings have about their world. Some species such as trees...do they dream? Contained in their leafy boughs, perhaps, lay memories. Consciousness? Other beings, in this case and more specifically Rampart, dreams where undoubtedly interwoven into every fiber of his being...

Title: A Voice From the Past (2 of 4)
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree (Rampart is Author)
Subject(s): Rampart, Yekan, & Phyree
Genre: Adventure/Romance
Setting: Ronfaure Region (including Manehseauri Forest)
* * * * *
The sun glistened off of the fresh dew in the trees and grass of West Ronfaure forest. Rampart stepped out of his abode onto the cool soft grass and took a look around. It was early morning from the looks of it and he checked his clock,
“Yup” he muttered to himself, “gotta meet Phyree and Yekan today, I should go get ready huh Raiden?”


Title: Big Adventure, Lil' Pea
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subject(s): Lilpea
Genre: Adventure
Setting: East Sarutabaruta
* * * * *
The sun had been all of an hour in the sky. Dew shimmered on the blades of savannah grass and would soon evaporate upwards into the blue expanse. White fluffy clouds drifted lazily without a care in the world. Under this massive celestial stage, a small tarutaru emerged from her house.

Her name was Lilpea...


Title: Easy Money
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subject(s): Xaeon & Peewee
Genre: Buddy Comedy
Setting: Fei'yin
* * * * *
"Great," Xaeon grumbled, "It's snowing again."

In an overly sarcastic tone Peewee responded, "Woah, is THAT what this is? What in Promathia's Realm is snow doing here in the Northlands?!"

For his quip, the elvaan paladin flicked the top of the tarutaru thief's head. "Ow, that smarts!"...


Title: Resolution
Criteria:
Requested by: Phyree
Subject(s): Phyree & Ishido
Genre: Action/Drama
Setting: La Theine Plateau
* * * * *
"Where are you," Phyree asked herself, "come out and face me." Since nightfall Phyree had been making her way from the Ephimere eastward toward the Crag of Holla. A peal of thunder rumbled above her. The sky had been black with clouds made heavy with rain. A jag of lightning shot down to the earth far off in the distance illuminating the bone-white tower...

Title: Thou Shalt Not Steal
Criteria:
Requested by: Awias & Yekan
Subject(s): Shard (and Cerra, added by me)
Genre: Horror/Comedy
Setting: Sanctuary of Zi'tah
* * * * *
Shard's mind was in a panic. He had been running all day. Something, someone, had been following him. Night was beginning to fall and he had only just made it inside the Sanctuary. Exhausted and dirty, he sat next to a glowing rock. Shard's leather breastplate rose and fell as his lungs gasped for air. He reached under, wincing. His hand, only just visible in the twilight, came into view covered in blood. His...

Title: Shade, Shadow Jedi
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
As I am sure most of you know, I write an awful lot of fanfiction. Wintaru, as he slaves over the sticky post, can attest to it. But I don't just write about FFXI. Recently a friend of mine who played Star Wars Galaxies asked me to write one involving an original character to use in the roleplaying boards as he wanted me to be a part of it. While I've seen the movies, I certainly am not up to date on what's "cannon", so I was a little nervous writing about something unfamiliar.

Title: Shade Saga, Origins Arc (1 of 5): Ghosts of the Past
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
“I understand clearly what it is you are saying, and frankly sir I wish you would do the same with me. Yes, I did get the files you sent over,” James’s patience on the private communicator was being tested, evidenced by his strained speech and pacing in his home office, “Look sir, facts are facts and…” he was cut off as his daughter who was playing in his office reached for an antique bound book on the shelf and ended up pulling it and about five others on the floor...

Title: Shade Saga, Origins Arc (2 of 5): Wraith's Mind
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
“Arissa? Arissa, can you hear me?” Detective Gunney sighed as he took his hand from the shoulder of the comatose six year old. He wasn’t sure any more why he came every night to try and get a response. Part of it was his duty. After all, the founder and president of the largest, non-Imperial import/export corporation and his wife were seemingly assassinated, the house nearly destroyed by an explosion which has a cause yet to be determined, his assets frozen suspiciously, and to top it off, there lies a little girl at his side – in a coma yet otherwise unharmed...

Title: Shade Saga, Origins Arc (3 of 5): Free Spirit
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
Arissa’s first year out of a coma was very educational. She was essentially reborn. She could walk and talk, which put her significantly ahead of most infants, but she needed to come to grips with her new life. She was no longer an intelligent six year old heiress, nor was she a powerful thirty-two year old assassin. No, Arissa was something else altogether. She was something new, undiscovered, and frightening. At the age of nineteen, a single ghost was born at the mutual death of two souls...

Title: Shade Saga, Origins Arc (4 of 5): Death Unto Life Unto...
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
By the time she was 23, Arissa had enough experience to fill ten lives. Currently, she was living with two...both of which had the uncanny ability to soak up tragedy like a sponge. In her true childhood, Arissa had a loving relationship with her parents. One night, the greed of one man took all of that from her. In her second life (was it truly even hers?) as Rose, she never knew the love of anyone. Rose had everything taken away from her: innocence, dignity, compassion... It wasn’t until she met Alohse Barriden – Gardener – that she truly felt love, even if it seemed to be one-sided. However, that first meaningful relationship was torn from her on the same night...

Title: Shade Saga, Origins Arc (5 of 5): A Granted Wish
Criteria:
Requested by:
Subjects: Arissa Nassani (a.k.a. Shade)
Genre:
Setting:
* * * * *
Arissa walked out to the landing pad off the side of her flat. The busy night sky was populated with the buzz of traffic whizzing by in the air. Coruscant was the heart of it all. A beep sounded behind the lithe woman in black flight suit.

“What is it, Compendium?” She was greeted with a series of beeps and clicks. The R2 astromech droid rolled toward the crane. “Anxious, aren’t we? Before we leave, we must do our preflight check. You know how much I rely on you.” She pet the hemispherical top of the droid. “Proceed.”


Kitaru
_________________________________

Title: The Little Taru
* * * * *
A lone little taru sat quietly on the beach looking up to the night sky he loved so dearly. The moon cast a beautiful glow on the small bay, and the little taru smiled as he watched the moonlight play in the crystal clear water.

For as long as the little taru could remember, even in the darkest of times , that moon had always been there to bathe him in its soothing glow , almost as if it were a guiding light, leading him ever onward whenever he had worries and doubts...


Title: The Little Taru: Journey's End
* * * * *
The little taru pulled the hood of the tattered cloak down to hide his face as he spoke with the deliveryman. Jeuno was lively as ever on this fine day , and he didn't care to be spotted.

"You've quite a bit of valuable equipment there , I trust it will ALL find it's way to it's intended recipients?" The little taru asked warily...


Title: The Little Taru: Finale
* * * * *
The little taru fell his hands and knees heaving for breath,
the dusty floors of Castle Oztroja were no place for a taru
White Mage by himself. The little taru wasn't sure how long
he could keep this fight up. This whole task before him was
a death sentence , he knew, but he had no other choice...


Title: The Little Taru: Explorer
* * * * *
The little taru stood on the legdge, the wind rustling his tunic, as he surveyed the huge creag-like area before him. Ro'Maeve was by far a striking contrast to the peaceful tranquility of Zitah, through which he had just passed. Could he really find something dear to him beyond this stark wasteland, the little taru thought...

Title: The Little Taru: The Test
* * * * *
The little taru smiled happily as he drew in a deep breath of the fresh sea air in Bibiki Bay. His journies of late had only served to strengthen his faith in Vanadiel. He had met so many wonderful people along the way and had came far with old friends. Today the little taru wanted to return to that lonely beach on Purgonogo Island, not to contemplate fading away again , but to reaffirm his will to go on...

Title: The Little Taru: The Battle for Battalia
* * * * *
The small group of adventurers were weary , but happy as they ran across Battalia headed for home. After all , fighting the undead of the Necropolis was never a small task , but they had managed to get the item that Maat had requested Shadowfinal to bring...

Title: The Little Taru: The Great Fading
* * * * *
This alliance was a capable one. Two strong paladins took the orc's mighty blows. From all around the battle several rangers, including the mithran, Solrain, fired into the onslaught. Some were here just to help, and others were fighting for the same cause... to gain a key so that they might quest for legendary artifact armor. The orcs, however, didn't intend to give up the keys without a struggle...

A Bard's Tale, 1st Movement
Title: 1st Bar, A Prologue
* * * * *
How many times have I seen people die?

The prisoner knelt down, his head bowed as my husband looked on without a single bit of forgiveness. “You've been charged with crimes that go against the Kingdom of San d' Oria. You were tried and convicted of treason under the Kingdom's laws, and sentenced to death. "Any last words?" His cruel whitened lips issued those words, and I felt a pang of sympathy rise up in my spirit for the young Elvaan who was about to die.


Title: 2nd Bar, Beautiful Music
* * * * *
"Ladies and gentlemen, may I please present Almakus."

I looked down from my jewel encrusted throne, to see a sopping wet man stroll a bit uncertainly towards where I sat in the back of the room. As he moved from tile to tile across the carved and dull gray granite floor, I watched his patched felt hat droop down over his face, sopping wet, causing his face to be bowed down slightly towards the ground to keep it from draining into his hidden eyes. His pale, thin hands clutched the pockmarked wooden frame of his harp, and I couldn't help but feel a pang of sympathy for him.


Title: 3rd Bar, Dinner Conversation
* * * * *
I placed the slender pointed end of my fork between my lips, tasting the supposedly-succulent flesh of a cockatrice upon my tongue. Tucking my teeth around the back end of the piece, I pulled it off the silverware piece and started to chew it silently.

It was two hours after the performance, and I still couldn’t get those eyes out of my mind.

Those crystal blue eyes smiling at me.

Those beautiful notes were still playing out in my ears, the sounds licking against my soul, drawing out for a brief moment my natural happiness.


Title: 4th Bar, Bedtime Fantasies
* * * * *
It is an honor to be the one to hold my shirt sleeves as I undress, and redress for bed.

I was not the one who came up with that silly honor, but the San d’ Orian noble ladies craved to be the one that would hand me my silk gown every night, sliding it around my back and to start to button it down to my knees.

And every night, I tried to protest it.

"Please Lady Qu’lan, that is not necessary. I can dress myself, I promise." I said with the air of a tired queen about me.

Ok, I've gotten all of Phyree's stuff added *whew*

Next I'll be searching for all of Nightsintodreams' stuff to add. I've also received a PM to add yet more fanfic, so this seems to be going very well.

If anyone would like to nominate this for a sticky please go here and start a thread with a link back to this one. I believe Phyree was going to see about getting it stickied, this is the way to do it.

If you are a writer and would like your stuff added, send me a pm with the following:

Author name (or fancy title like Phyree's Smiley: grin)
Color for your name (something ledgible please)
Link to the story (Doesn't have to be on Alla either)
Story Title
Any other pertinent information you want included (see the examples in Phyree's section)

Thanks, the creativity out here is AMAZING!

Updated with more of Phyree's stuff.

I also went back 40 pages into the forum, and found great stuff from Kitaru's Little Taru series, and everything Nights has written. I bookmarked it all and am planning to add it this weekend.

Wow Win, you are doing a nice job! I told Nights about the thread and he said he is going to link you to his fanfiction.net(?) account so you can post links to his stories from there. He said he was particular about the order of his stories and such. But I'll let you two discuss that yourselves. ^^;;

I'll keep more stories comin'!

Thanks Win for having thick skin and a good sense of humor...I was just thinking to myself..DB, do you know him well enough to say that? I still don't know if I do but one thing is for sure..that baby is a doll!

Hehe yeah, I'm still not convinced she's mine, she's way too cute. She's rolling over now and "talking" and such. She like to sit on my lap and watch me play FFXI of course >.>

I'm returning the same favor that Phyree has done for our server. He popped into the Cait Sith forum and posted in our fan fiction thread as well and told us to take a peek in here. Very good stuff kept me occupied all through work. Smiley: yippee

If you are interested, here is the link to Cait Sith's fan fiction thread.

Thanks! I swear I haven't forgotten about this thread, it's been a very hectic weekend. I hope to get some more things added on Monday, I had a chat with Nights for links to his other fanfics and I still have Kitaru's stuff to add as well.

Updated with Kitaru's stuff, Nights will be next.

Man, after reading The Little Taru series again I really wish Kitaru were still doing these, they are excellent.

Hi all! I'm sorry for the lack of fanfictions. As it was, I found myself in Japan all last week. Weird how that happens eh? But fear not for I have a few good stories on deck for you all. Please keep an eye on the forums this coming week for another of Phyree's Phinal Phantasy Phables. =)

Woo, that's some pretty good stuff.

I have a fanfic FFXI video which I may be turning into writing once it gets done.

I'm not really a great writer and I have a professional writer helping me w/ the script of it but you can watch it @

Episode 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DL5ZcnrmKVU

Episode 2
Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elreWLf1ATk
Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWFlt8CXdo4

Episode 3
Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcNFQHAsEvc

Episode 1 is not very good but I fixed a lot of things wrong with it in Episode 2.

Wow, I like your video story. If you would like some feedback, I'll PM you. =) Thanks for the submissions. As for those hoping to see more of Phyree's Phinal Phantasy Phables, I will be happy to start writing again. I'm sorry for a few orders that people put in and I didn't write. I don't have them, so please either post here or send me a PM and I will work on them. Since my father passed away in July, the few months before and after did not find me in a creative mood.

But, writing is good for the soul (at least in my case) and I'd love to work out some more stories. Maybe some more episodes in the "Chronicles of Naeonia" or even another Opaline Brigade (I may do another Sixblades soon on my own). If you would like a story written about you, a friend, or even an enemy, please make sure to include the following:

Subject(s)
Genre
Setting

Just those three little things. Of course if you have any special requests that you would like included (I've had some ask for a certain line, catch phrase, or in joke used) tell me about them, too.
