Fan Fiction Recommendations

**UPDATED: Nov 10/10**

It's occurred to me that I've been reading and writing fan fiction for over ten years, so I like to think I've got decent taste. Add to this that I've had computer problems the last while and I'm concerned that I'm going to lose my bookmarks. Therefore I've decided to put together this fan fiction recommendation list.

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't reviewed a number of these fics and thus will have to go remedy the situation.

I won't be posting everything up at once  since I'm lazy and thus will be updated every once and a while.

As of Nov 10, 2010, I've stopped trying to alphabetize these entries and will start adding the new fics and authors to the bottom of their respective sections.

In which I admit to my continued existence

Short update. Basically everything is completely nuts on my end of the world. So my current absence from the interwebz is unfortunately inevitable.

Here's what's going on.

1. My childhood home is going to to be knocked down then rebuilt, leading to...

2. My folks and me moving into separate places, aka. packing.

3. My mother, the primary organizer of the move, got REALLY sick and spent about half a week in hospital, meaning...

4. Everyone worrying and focusing more on her than the house.

5. Add to this that we found asbestos in the house, which means...

6. We've got to pack my folks' stuff way sooner than we anticipated so they can get rid of the guck prior to the house being trashed.

7. Somewhere in this craze, I'm still trying to find work, which if successful will lead to...

8. Extra work will mean I have almost no time for helping them pack.

Needless to say, it will most likely be almost a month until I get a chance where I can actually work on my fics. Sorry guys.

Moving places
Cloud the trooper

Short update from the cold end of the world. After being really sick AGAIN because antibiotics can cause as many problems as they solve, I am getting ready to Move.

This isn't the standard move many young people indulge in, where they move out but their parent's house remains Home. This time I'm moving out and shortly afterwards my folks are knocking down my childhood home. After years of plumbing, electrical, animal, gas and other sorts of problems, the last straw was finally pulled: the sink broke and my mother told my step-dad that they either were getting a new house or he'd be getting a new wife. A moment of serious contemplation passed and with great reluctance, he decided on the former. So the old place is going to be knocked down and they are getting a new one built.

So for the half a year or so, I'm going to be renting a room. Then since I'm attempting to save for school, I'll be moving back into their place. (OMG How pathetic is a twenty-five year-old who still lives with her parents? ...Alright maybe it isn't that bad, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.

Attempting to find a decent place and even more importantly, compatible roommates is a tiresome chore. Still the hardest thing is going through all my stuff and giving it away. There's limited storage in the new house and later in life I hope to permanently move out and undoubtedly I have to part with some of my memories. My stuffed animals all had personalities and while I'm saving four of them, tmany like Sarah Tops (my triceratops) and Quincy the Easter Bunny were inevitable culled.  I ran into one of my first stories going through my stuff. It was part of my "Three Wizzerds" series about siblings, twin boys and their sister, who went on many magical adventures.

The house was a dump. The basement, where I sleep, was freezing except for during the heart of summer. The plumbing meant that if you so much as touched a facet while someone was in the shower, aforementioned someone would perform the ritual hot/cold dance. The kitchen was minuscule. The floors, and countertops of the kitchen and bathrooms were linoleum and were marred with deep scratches.

I'll really miss it.

Thicker Than Blood - Chapter 2

Title: Thicker Than Blood
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Cloud, Rufus
Summary: Cloud Strife never returned to Nibelheim. AU

Author’s Note: Hey guys, I wanted to make a few things clear. I plan to have this story be an original Final Fantasy VII fanfic, meaning it’s based primarily on the first game. That being said I’ve borrowed concepts and characters from the rest of the Compilation, but if I do my job well it won’t cause any confusion to those who aren’t familiar with them.

And people who know who Genesis is, I’m really sorry to say that unless things drastically change with my plans, he will not be showing up other than an occasional mention (and even that may not happen). Depending on your perspective, he may be dead, still wreaking havoc out there or be some guy you’ve never heard of.
