Hey [community profile] megaflare_ff authors! Your absentee mods return, finally crawling out from under the twin rocks of work and school, to check in. How's it going so far? What's everyone working on?

With the rough draft deadline approaching, seems like an opportune moment to share some snippets. Drop a note with a paragraph or so in comments. Ready, set, go!

Hey, everyone! Welcome to the 2011 incarnation of [community profile] boss_battle, the Mega Flare support community. Since author signups are now closed, we thought it would be a good time to kick things off with a friending meme. Anyone who's signed up for the 2011 round and/or participated in the 2010 round is welcome to play!

The questions:

First FF game:
Favorite FF game:
Favorite FF minigame:
Which FF fandoms are you now or have you been active in?
Other fandoms, current and/or past?
What FF game do you plan to play/replay next, and why?

You know the drill! Post a comment with a snippet of your story. A sentence, a paragraph, a bit of dialogue, whatever you're most proud of producing in the last few days.

Sharing starts: now! :D

The approach of the summary-sharing deadline gives us another opportunity to share snippets of our works-in-progress. Share a sentence or a paragraph in comments! :D

Hey, Authors! How's it going? We're not quite halfway through the official writing period, between the end of sign-ups and the due date for rough drafts, so [personal profile] renay and I thought this would be a good time to check in with everyone. Comment to this post with a sentence (or so) from your story, and then let us know how it's going. And if the answer is: not very well, hey, that's okay. You still have plenty of time, and probably plenty of people to commiserate with you.

Item the first: Now that I have something almost resembling an outline, I'm starting to wonder if I won't be shooting part of my premise in the foot re: the living status of minor characters.

Spoilers for Cleyra, I guess? )

Item the second: Something which has always confounded me is just what to do with Garnet/Dagger's name. Should I always refer to her as "Garnet," unless she is being spoken to as someone who would address her as "Dagger?" Is there an established convention for how to deal with characters who have aliases?

So, I've figured out my plot for my Megaflare, and I was wondering how many of us were planning on writing post-Final Fantasy 8 fics. For those of us who are, how many have really given thought to the state of the world that the game leaves us in?

For the record, I'm really nervous being the first one aside from a mod to post here.  I feel like I'm doing something naughty. :X  Hopefully, this is what the mods intended for us to discuss and chat about here!  If not, forgive me, please. ^^;

Thought-Provoking Questions )

Finally, time for my own opinions about the characters themselves. I am an opinionated person, and I am well aware that not everyone will agree with me. This is good! We want to fost discussion and thought, not just blind agreement here.

My Rambly Personal Opinions )

What about you? Don't feel like you have to spoil your piece or anything, just some general ideas to throw around and discuss. I love hearing about other post-game works, and I'm very interested in what's going through everyone's heads. ^^

Note: I wasn't sure about how to tag this, so I left those blank and thought I'd let the mods wrangle that one!  Thank you so much.
