Title: A Home for the Holidays
Fandom: Final Fantasy VIII
Author: Batsutousai
Rating: General
Pairings: Seifer Almasy & Squall Leonhart
Summary: Seifer has spent so long trying to get Squall to spend the winter holidays with him, it really wasn't a surprise to find himself standing outside Garden, despite the certainty that he wouldn't be welcomed.

A/N: Every winter season, I send out cards to anyone willing to give me their address, and I decided this past year to send out winter-themed ficlets to slip in with them, one for each ship that people on tumblr and LJ voted for. I asked if people thought I should post them all in the new year, and most people agreed I should, so this is one of them. Save for one, which is against FFN's rules, all of them will be posted on the major, multi-fandom sites I usually post on; links to those can be found in my profile/about me page of whichever site you're reading this on. ;)

I'd originally thought to post these next month, for my birthday, and then decided I might appreciate the reviews while I'm stuck in video rooms all this weekend, lol. (I staff at Katsucon. If you're attending, feel free to drop me a line! I promise I don't bite, and I've a bag of valentines to hand out. ;)

Author: Batsutousai
Rating: T
Pairings: Tidus/Seymour
Warnings: AU, major canon-fuckery
Summary: On that fateful day when Yunalesca faced Sin, only part of her died, and the part that stayed alive finds itself in Spira a thousand years later.

Disclaim Her: Ugh. Translating of Al Bhed. *stare* If it's bold, it's Al Bhed.

A/N: The beginning of this chapter is full of tears and I really cannot explain how that happened. I'm sorry.

Honesty time: I finished this chapter about two weeks ago, but between packing up to go home after two weeks catsitting, and then seeing my mum off for her work trip, I completely forgot to post it. Also forgot to work on the next chapter, so I'm gonna go get on that. Sorry for the delay, minna-san!!
Related: This chapter has actually had a second read-through. XD

Disclaim Her: Ugh. Translating of Al Bhed. *stare* If it's bold, it's Al Bhed.

A/N: Whereupon I make shit up about the guado culture and how they handle criminals.
I hate how the guado just up and gave up when Seymour went bat-shit in the game. It's like, over a thousand years of culture, and the minute a leader vanishes, you idiots are at a loss of what to do with yourselves? Even the Al Bhed managed better than them, and they were constantly under attack and losing people. I just...that will never make much sense to me.

Also, had a couple comments about how unlikely the sending would be to affect Sin. Hopefully Yuna's explanation will curb some of those. (Also explain my twisted little headcanon in regards to them.)

This chapter hasn't been reread/beta'd, same as the last one. I'm stuck sitting an info tent at Sakura Matsuri all day tomorrow, and I've a D&D game on Sunday; figured I'd post this before I head for bed tonight, just so I don't have to worry about it after my busy weekend. :P Anyway, it's not like any of you ever bitch about my mistakes. (One of you smartasses is about to leave me a review pointing errors out, now, aren't you? Assholes.)

A/N: This chapter was worked on off-and-on over the course of...four years? Give or take. So any odd changes in characterisation can be attributed to that.

The party – and by party, I mean Gina, Tidus, and Rikku – split up in this chapter. As when Tidus and Rikku were split from Gina at the start of this story, I'll touch in with each of them. This does mean that this fic just got expanded from my original figuring, but I'm sure none of you mind. (Assuming I don't let it sit for another four years. *shuffles nervously*)

This chapter has not had a beta read, because I wanted to get it up before I left to housesit for a friend and I'm stuck with her questionable internet access for two weeks. Enjoy anyway? :P

A/N: I haven't made it to Esthar again yet during my current replay of the game, so I'm not even going to try capturing Odine's ridiculous accent. I know, I know. Everyone's upset.

LJ-only: My auntie let my sister and I know that she needed us at her place starting tomorrow night. To make my life a little easier, I'm going to be posting the last two chapters of this fic here sometime today. I'm sure all, like, two of you exceedingly quiet readers will appreciate that and bloody well keep it to yourselves. XP

A/N: This chapter is up ridiculously early because I'm going to be out and without internet until super late, and I decided it was better to post this chapter super early, than it would be to post it super late. XD

A/N: The mind rape and mental torture is in this chapter. (It's all Ultimecia being a bitch and Squall suffering for it.) I didn't mark it out, because it's right in the middle of a scene, but if you want to skip the worst of it: As soon as Squall gets dragged into his mind, skip to the next scene break. The event is mentioned again a few times, but you'll skip the most distasteful part.

A/N: Wherein Bats realises she's written herself into a period of multiple years where nothing interesting is going to happen. Ugh.

Of note, Squall starts thinking of Ellone as 'Elle' this chapter, instead of 'Sis', though he does still refer to her by the latter. (Honestly, your author kept catching herself starting to type 'Elle' a couple chapters from now and came back and tossed the name change in here, given the time skip.)

Summary: On that fateful day, when a child grown visited his childhood home and a dying sorceress passed on her powers, it wasn't another sorceress they found, but a young boy running lost.

A/N: I struggled with Squall in this. Originally, he was going to be a lot colder than he turned out, but then I sort of came to the slow realisation that this isn't canon!Squall, can never be canon!Squall. And I really just need to resign myself to him being OoC. Like always.

As an advance warning for any confused Americans out there, I kept finding myself using the British numbering conventions for Garden floors, and was too lazy to edit them all over to the American standard, especially since this fic is rife with other Britishisms. So, ground floor equals American 1F, first floor is 2F, and the second floor is 3F. Sorry/not sorry.

A/N: The original character death is in this chapter. I hadn't originally intended to kill her, but I needed something to force Squall from the White SeeD Ship, and this was where my muse went. I am....so unbelievably sorry, you have no idea.

A/N: Still cursing people.

Anyway, so, there I was, rereading FFVIII fics – because why not, right? – and I realised I hadn't really found any of the males-as-sorceresses fics that I seem to remember being fairly regular back in... When was I in this fandom last time? 2011?
Whatever. Short story: I was wondering at the lack and my muse cheerfully wondered how canon would be affected if Squall was the one who got Ultimecia's powers at the orphanage, rather than Edea. Which...yeah.
I sort of hate this fandom. Just a little.

This fic has 12 chapters. It'll be updated every three days (rather than my usual once-a-week schedule). If you want to wait until the final chapter is posted to start reading, come back on 25 July. ;)

A/N: And here's the +1. Broken off into its own chapter because it's FUCKING MASSIVE. Because plot.

I am...unusually kind to Rinoa. The danger of having a friend who actually likes her, I guess. *shrugs* To each their own.

A/N: I am not-so-secretly cursing every last one of you who took up the flag of hopeful glee when I said I was getting distracted by FFVIII again. *stares*
This was originally going to be a quickie one-shot, and while the 5 times part behaved, the +1 developed a mind of its own. (It's over four times longer than the 5 times. *stare*) So this is broken up into the 5 times in one chapter, and the +1 in another, which will be up tomorrow.

Can also be read on Archive of Our Own, Fanfiction.Net, or LiveJournal.
