Boulet-Guardians

Recommended Fic

I have read an insightful Lulu fic covering her pilgrimage with Lady Ginnem. Good News by fyre bird on ficwad, and this one is not NC-17 so you don't need a ficwad membership to read it.

In exchanging thoughts with the author, i think I have finally solved my dilemma for the next installment of Resurrection III. I had decided to send Lulu off to kill random monsters, and have an excuse to show her and Auron being badasses, because I enjoy writing battlescenes. But she's too careful to go wandering off without a good reason.

I think I may have one. *ebil grin* A nasty, nasty idea has finally sorted something out for me.

Also, I've been wanting to explore Lulu's pilgrimage with Lady Ginnem as well -- I'd toyed with a couple different scenarios for having her reveal a little bit of it to Auron. Now, finally, I have a reason and mechanism!

Maybe.

Have you ever wondered how young Lulu survived the Cavern of the Fayth and the Calm Lands, after her Summoner died?

*waits for fyre bird to tell me whether my horrible idea makes sense, or would fail to convince readers*

Oooh, she likes it!

I'll have to be careful, as fyre bird says; the concept I came up with could crash and burn horribly if done wrong. But that's true of a lot of AU fanfic, especially 'ships. My next story will focus on the Cavern of the Fayth, with some flashbacks to Lulu's pilgrimage with Lady Ginnem. It is obviously one of the three most pivotal events in Lulu's life prior to Yuna's pilgrimage.

Alas, the story must wait a few weeks, unless I have a fit of procrastination. I have some grad school papers to write, an apartment to clean, a large online forum to moderate, and my mother is coming to visit, and I've been shamelessly burying myself in Aulu stuff for the last week and a half.

Obsessions are so very silly.

But I think the next story will be better than the last two, because it's going to have....

*DRUMROLL*

A PLOT!

(you can all fall over now.)

Oh yes. And more sex. Because I'm having far too much fun learning how to write it. I don't understand why it took me so many years to break through that hangup; it's not like I haven't been reading erotica since the net began.
