Help! Please Recommend FFX Slash!

So I've recommended/nominated a bunch of stories for the Genesis Awards for great FFX Fanfiction, whose deadline is March 31st.

I don't know FFX slash. It's out there, I just don't read it as much. WHAT ARE GOOD SLASH STORIES?!

I know of "The Many Adventures of Walking Man," but there's gotta be a ton more. 
Worse, I don't know of any full-length yuri stories, either. And that, I should like to READ!

Other categories I've been wracking my brain to nominate for are action/adventure, crossover, and AU.

Of course, I am still agitating for more fans to nominate one FFX story for consideration -- otherwise the "Genesis Awards of Great 2010 FFX fanfiction" will be almost entirely stories found and nominated by me and owlmoose (thanks, hon)! To reiterate, I am not a member of the staff or judges of GA, just a fan like all of you who wants to see great FFX writers and stories recognized. I'm trying to pimp the fandom.

If you don't want to register and post your nomination in the forum, all ya gotta do is this:
Choose one of their nomination categories and mail this nomination form to Genesis.awards.admin@gmail.com ....

Reasons for Recommendation:

But if you don't have time, please please please just point me to the slash. Quick! The deadline is tomorrow!

...w-what counts as a story and what counts as FFX? Because I have a number of Epic Threads with Seymour Guado topping (hard topping) Aizen Sousuke or Kuchiki Byakuya (Bleach), Riku (Kingdom Hearts), etc. And at least one Seymour/Jecht thread. While the context is RP, the format is exceedingly prosy.

Yes? No? I am half-embarrassed, half-in-love with these threads.

Hm. Well, the Genesis Awards are awards for Final Fantasy X fanfiction, and there is a Crossover category!

There could certainly be Seymour/somebody stories there.

I don't think RP threads would work, because that's not a piece of written literature. But what do I know? I'm not a judge!

The rules are here, although the date for FFX fanfiction was moved to March 31st to try and encourage a little more participation.

I've nominated a whole slew of stories, but I've been wracking my brains for extraordinary slash fanfiction.

Found a couple in my bookmarks. While I am an equal opportunity shipper most of the time, and kind of want to slash Braska in particular with everyone, my favorite fics tend to go like this.

Auron: *Braska is hot and I want to get with that but I AM AURON AND THAT IS IMPROPER*
Braska: :D
Jecht: You guys are weird.

And thus no one gets any. So what I nominated reflects that. XD I HOPE THAT WORKS.

Life is hard when you don't care about porn.

Heh. Those sound FUN.

Any and all of the above.

I can't believe I haven't found more Auron/Braska/Jecht slash, in some combination. It's gotta be out there. My interests tend to go in other directions, but it makes so much sense.

Also, there has got to be adorable Gippal/Baralai kicking around. I've seen bits and pieces, but I haven't been paying enough attention. Were I to write m/m, I would probably write them.

I'm fond of it, but yeah, no dice, at least not often and not particularly well done (and those that are well-done tend to focus more gen because they don't just want to be writing porn and those three are more complicated than that). It's definitely a change from my home fandom, FF7, where you are practically TRIPPING over slash.

I admit, I didn't pay much attention to Gippal or Baralai to have an opinion there. XD Was too busy during X-2 playing dress-up and enjoying Yuna SHOOTING THINGS to care much about the random new characters. This makes me an awful person, probably.

I think this means I need to add "FFX slash" to my list of Things To Write This Year. XD

Not an awful person; that's what the game was about!

owlmoose just dragged me into an appreciation for the Crimson Squad backstory.

flyby at work, sorry for the brevity, hopefully not too late? my faaaavorite http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1854999/1/Replacement_Options
same as above

X-2, tho, not X.
Mar. 31st, 2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
I declare by fiat that X-2 is allowed as well as X, because the Genesis Awards for FFVII is allowing all the different compilation stuff.

*goes to look* Brevity good. Thank you!
