Summary: No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression.

A/N: Bit of a perspective change. And some minor time-jumps. Wanted to take care of an idea Shara had, and I was sick of arguing with Laguna. (I love him, really I do. But, seriously... *eye roll*)
Anyway, this fic needed to end eventually. XP

A/N: This chapter got so completely and utterly away from me. I think it's because I was tired. Possibly had something to do with dinner. Dunno. At any rate, it's a little weird. Not sure how I feel about the whole thing.

A/N: elufuir (FFN) – Since you didn't log in or anything... Yes, I've got the Distant Worlds soundtracks. And I tend to take my titles from song lyrics, though I couldn't, for the life of me, tell you which ones are from what songs. (Could be anything in my library of four thousand songs, honestly...)
And, oh Merlin, please, no more plot bunnies for this fandom. Please. My brain needs a break.

Summary: No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression.

A/N: Somewhere between my rereading the game script for this fight and trying to find a way to not be forced to rewrite this scene again, Squall and I decided to try something a little different. Seifer and the others all think we're a bit mad, but Ultimecia was surprisingly accommodating, once she got over her initial shock.

I finally got them together? Sorta.

Oh, yeah. This is another kinda long chapter. Erm, it wouldn't stop.

Summary: No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression.

A/N: This chapter is unusually long and covers all of the mission mentioned at the end of last chapter.

There are some original characters in this chapter who partake in recreational drug use. It's near the end of the chapter, so if that bothers you, skip the scene. (I'll be nice and mark it. For once.)
I think it's more humorous than disturbing, and it's not an addictive drug, but to each their own.

Summary: No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression.

A/N: Since Shivani brought it up, I thought I'd preface this chapter by saying that Seifer is a Capricorn, so his animal is a goat. (Squall is a Leo, as mentioned in the first chapter, so a lion.)

Also, erm, most of my A/Ns – particularly the ones at the bottom – are left as they were when I first wrote the chapter, rather than being updated after the fic's completion. So they generally have more to do with my state of mind/thoughts at the writing of that chapter, as opposed to when I'm posting. So, you know, the whole guesses about what's going to happen next chapter? Has nothing to do with what actually happens next chapter. Unless I was lucky. (Unless you couldn't figure that out on your own. Erm....)

Also, I'm intending to hide under my covers all day tomorrow for various video game-related reasons and won't be near my computer to update. So it was either today or Sunday for this update.

A/N: This chapter gave me something of a surprise twist. Remember what I said in chapter one about self-writing characters? Yeah. That.
I blame Cid.

Also, I swore I updated this chapter on Tuesday, like I was supposed to, but apparently I dreamed that. So… Two chapters being posted today, this one and chapter four. Sorry for the mix-up.
LJ-only edit: Because of the Russian elections and the subsequent DDoS attacks this weekend, I decided to wait until today to post this chapter and the next with chapter five. So you get three updates today.
Not that anyone on LJ is reading this, I think. Or, if you are, you're not letting me know about it. Meanies. *sticks tongue out*

A/N: There's a fair number of OCs in this chapter, but only because it's hard to tell stories about Squall's time in Garden using only the canon characters.

Also, because ShadowsofNyx asked: This fic is post-canon. It has nothing to do with Zyxt.

Rating: M
Pairings: Seifer/Squall, Irvine/Selphie, Zell/Xu, Quistis/OMC, Fujin/Raijin
Warnings: AU, major canon-buggery, OoC Squall, murder, OC drug use, slash/yaoi (onscreen kissing and hugging, off-screen sex), het (all off-screen, but it's definitely there)
Summary: No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression.

Disclaim Her: This story uses characters and settings owned by Square Enix. No money is being made from the creation of this fanfic, and no copywrite infringement is intended. Some lines may be taken word-for-word from the game.

A/N: So, there I was, replaying FFVIII again – I've been trying to get to the part where you enter Esthar so I can actually read the OCS explanation, rather than just shitting this stuff out my arse – and I was watching the scene in Trabia where they were talking about how they'd all grown up together, you know? And my brain/muse went, 'Hey! What if Squall bequeathed his memories to his child-self!' My response was something along the lines of, 'HOLY FUCKING SHIT, NOT AGAIN.'
Anyway. Dunno what it is about this fandom... Maybe it's just because I hate canon that much. I dunno.

Shara is working on a FFVIII fic and she had me copy out my notes on the main characters' stats for her, which ended up evolving into a discussion of what signs each of them were, then on to how both Harry and Squall are Leos and isn't that funny?
Long story short, I've got this absolutely ancient baby names book that I stole from my mum back in high school and it's got a little blurb about each sign in the back. The info for Leo made mention of noblesse oblige and it sort of stuck with me. Hence the title.

Squall is going to be quite OoC compared to canon, I warn you now. Thing is, in this fic, he woke up to his need for his friends before he'd really learned to push them away. That's not to say he's particularly open or likes to hug random people on the street, but he does allow a bit more emotion and words of encouragement.
On the other hand, this fic is also rather dark. Squall and Seifer kill people. Sometimes in cold-blood. You don't always get all the grizzly details on-screen, but you generally know what they're doing.
