Doctor Who (Big Finish) Fanfiction, Team Five
—> Read it on AO3
Title: “Master’s Thesis” (Chapter 1 of Fiveish)
Characters: Fifth Doctor, older!Nyssa, Tegan, Turlough, Lasarti, and *cough* Matt Herse
Word Count: 2600
Summary: When Nyssa all but hijacks the TARDIS to return home, she discovers an old enemy taking a sinister interest in her family. Tiptoeing around temporal paradoxes means she can’t let the Doctor find out. It’s a good thing she has a friend like Tegan to rely on.
Continuity: Between Heroes of Sontar and Kiss of Death, but you don’t have to have listened to any Big Finish audio episodes to follow what’s going on here.
(photomanip mimicking the CD cover art used for Doctor Who audio episodes)
This was one of my favorite TARDIS teams back in 1980, except that the writers back then were clueless about how to write stubborn and/or smart women. Poor scriptwriting and sexism are usually NOT a problem in Big Finish studio's Doctor Who radio plays of the past several years, reuniting classic Who actors and giving their characters more development and respect than the TV series did.

Braids by DippyWerewolf on deviantART
...so I can find it later. (Of course, I can look back on her dA as well).
Thank you so much!
...Rikku, Yuna and Lulu playing with each other's hair. And braids, because braiding hair (or having someone else braid one's hair) is fun and soothing.

I propose that we make 2014 the year of the Mary Sue. This is the year where women writers take our women-driven fandoms and unapologetically write our own wish-fulfillment fantasies, our idealized, heroic characters, our self-inserts and our ways of escaping from the reality of our less-than-ideal lives. I propose that we take the term Mary Sue and treat it just like the name James Bond: A cool, kickass character that all look upon with adoration or fearful respect, who gets to go do exciting things, meet cool people, look fucking hot and awesome all the time, kick people in the face and go back to the hotel for a drink and a fuck. Because female fans, female fandoms, and female characters shouldn’t have to gain permission to be badasses.~ skadi-again-again vieralynn has been writing good stuff about (a) the validity of reclaiming Mary Sue and (b) the way a lot of fandom escapism doesn't speak to her because it tends to suit the tastes of white / straight / anglo-american fans. ( Incoherent nattering about my own tastes in Mary SuesCollapse )

Infinity Blade is like the Sidequests Before Saving the World portion of an FF game: FIND / COLLECT / FORGE / DEFEAT ALL THE THINGS.
Or just thwack a stone golem with a rolled-up newspaper, depending on one's mood.
(Yes, that is armor made of cardboard and duct tape.
... it sucks.)

this is NSFW. But I'm sure you'll get more out of it than I have since you can read the captions, whereas I only know the lyrics of the original zany song. (Yatta!)
I'm tickled by all the obscure cameos from FFI-V near the end, (Maria! Minwu! Faris! Lenna! Desch!) plus more recent folks like Sazh.
And Mr. Chupon. O.o

In the most recent two episodes, Cloud has given Sephiroth the Black Materia, punched Aeris while possessed, nearly cut her in two while possessed, and stood there like a man frozen in corbomite while Sephiroth performed Death From Above.
Let's pause for a moment to celebrate the hoary Final Fantasy tradition of playing into enemy hands.
- FFI: Retrieve a magical artifact for a villain masquerading as an imposter king!
- FFII: Rescue an imposter Princess Hilda and take her back to the rebel base!
- FFIII: Let an enemy steal two magical artifacts while we're returning the one he stole earlier!
- FFIV: Steal a crystal and slaughter innocents on our imposter king's orders! Let more crystals fall into enemy hands on purpose or via a possessed friend!
- FFV: Help possessed Dad destroy crystal for the enemy! Get captured so as to be used as hostages by enemy!
- FFVI: Open the Sealed Gate so the enemy can break in and kill/drain all the Espers and destroy the world!
But now that we've handed Sephiroth the Black Materia on a platter and let Aeris die, there's no way we could screw up anything else, is there? I mean, it's not like we could give him the Black Materia again, right? Ahahaha.
Well then. While Cloud was angsting over Aeris' bloodless body, Sephiroth idly mentioned his upcoming journey to the Northern Crater. Naturally, we must accept this veiled invitation.
( On with the PlaythroughCollapse )
