The soft whir of an automatic door announced his arrival, even before a mess of black bangs (only just beginning to tinge with gray) poked through the open entryway, propelled by the president’s telltale lackadaisical gait.
Hey everyone! I just updated my FFVIII fic “On The Tides Of Fate”! I meant to do it earlier this week, but got distracted by all of the things. Anyway, this chapter’s 2/3 fluff, 1/3 WTF?! and 100%…done, lol. Hope you all enjoy!
P.S: Huge shout out to @summonerluna for reblogging my cover of “Premonition”! It’s gotten a ton of reblogs overnight; just as much as as it did when @klepto-maniac0 and @siobhann shared it about a month ago, so thanks to all of the VIII fandom for coming out strong as always!
((No matter how long, I think my muse for Selphie will always return with no problem. Here’s where I take my leave, since this blog would be too active to keep up while I’m here, but just two more weeks, and then, I’ll shower my favorite muse with lots of attention. So when that time comes, please be here to welcome me back then too~))
She’s canonically a horrible person and it’s gr9. The only person she likes unreservedly is Quistis, the only person she takes orders from is Cid (and by extension, Edea, because if you think she wasn’t informed about the succession you are extremely wrong), and she is not nice to Squall when he’s clearly promoted over her. And she’s essentially trained to be suspicious by nature, doesn’t like people without proof that they’re not going to screw her over (tbh why I tend to play her as someone very fond of one night stands and not relationships).
I’m not even going into how much she outright loathes Seifer in canon (and this is why that ship is one of my favorites because it’s outright hostile to begin with until they realize that they’re essentially cut from the same cloth.)
Xu is Canon Bitch and I love my trash child with all my heart.
I can imagine these guys as cadets. Squall using his hair as a barrier to ignore Seifer, and Seifer taking that as an extra challenge to taunt him. Quistis keeps yelling at her two favorite boys in the back row. I also imagine that sometimes they even wear their uniforms.
(I tried being loose with my inks this time. Just trying new ways of doing things.)
So I was just reading about the Glass Cliff and the concept of “promoted to the level of incompetence”, and that got me thinking about the hasty promotion and devastating demotion of our dear Instructor.
I can’t imagine that there weren’t people who were jealous of her success, but how many of them were in a position to make life difficult for her?
Hm… a ship I have for Seifer that I greatly enjoy is his relationship with Squall in a private RP. We’ve managed to uncover some deep headcanons and go further into the psychological aspect of their rivalry between one another. It’s been interesting.
❧ - A ship I have with your character
Anything. I’ll take it all. Give me your Cloud. Broship, Hateship, Loveship, Shipship, don’t care, give me have him. *grabby hands*
✗ - A ship I can’t stand
Honestly, Squall and Quistis.
To this day, I have never understood why Quistis would be so attracted to Squall, considering the way he so poorly treated her.
But it also has to do with if Quistis was confusing her desires for being a sister figure towards Squall why didn’t she have these same feelings towards Zell or Seifer? *SHRUUUUGS*
