Having had no sleep and on a six-cups-of-coffee-in-two-hours binge, I saw Spira Claus and thought it said Spice Girls.

Cripes, I need some sleep.

But uh...if you're really bored, you could totally enrich the world with a bit of Quis/Xu.

Good gods. I have NO CLUE where this came from or why I wrote it (there's another page or so of insanity)...

"Spira Claus" excerpt...

Auron ripped the white beard from his chin with an expression of disgust. "Now! This is it!" he cried. "Now is the time to choose! Shop and run up huge credit card bills, or live and fight your sorrow! There is no Santa Claus!"

They gasped. "Sir Auron?"

Rikku burst into tears. "You big meanie!"

Tidus rubbed the back of his neck and sighed. Being Jewish, he had never really gotten what all the fuss was about. But maybe...

"You mean... it's all a big pack of lies?" Wakka stared at him, dumbfounded. "But da presents under da tree... and someone always drank da milk and ate da cookies..."

Kimahri burped loudly.


That Quis/Xu has refused to get going for far too long, alas, and petered out shortly after this bit...


(1) Review historical data; (2) assess field conditions; (3) formulate three possible responses; (4) project possible outcomes; (5) select most favorable course based on SAMPL (Simple, Achievable, Mission Parameters, Least casualties) formula; (6) execute.

Under the circumstances, Quistis guessed that Xu would not reprimand her for skipping most of steps three through five in the interest of efficiency. Although she projected that Xu would probably look better chained to a wall than The Girl Next Door.

Quistis seized Xu's tie (exploit available resources) and reeled her into a teeth-jarring kiss.

Will take Faris Galuf, although tempted by both Paine Baralai and Paine and Baralai. XD

"Maybe I liked her spark," Faris retorted. "Stealin' my ship right under me nose—she'd make a pirate herself, with a bit more seasoning. Gar, she were a pretty little thing. Maybe you're too old to notice it, old man, but she's fair easy on the eyes."

"You're trying to tell me you spared our hides for a sweet pair of legs? Come off it. I've seen that pendant you wear, twin to hers. You came along to keep kin out of trouble, all the while claiming to be in it for loot." He raised his tankard, eyes twinkling. 'You're too honorable by half for a pirate, lad. Blood will tell."

"Stow it." Faris' chin dropped to her arms. "I didn't know, and I took it for a sign o'... fate or luck or some damned fancy. A kindred soul with a face like a mermaid's, and— damn you, Galuf, let a soul be."

Okay, there is really no way I wasn't going to ask for Mrs. Peel, You're Needed. That was never going to not be how this went.

Alas, it's fairly predictable. Some months after the last Diana Rigg episode:

The distant chime of the elevator and the staggering protest of the metal grill were perfectly routine. So were the clipped, light footsteps muffled by the worn carpet in the hall. Nevertheless Steed stiffened as if he'd been shot.

He swung open the door, dispensing with security procedures that had kept them both alive for years, and beamed with iron-willed restraint. "Mrs. Peel." No more, when a thousand traitorous thoughts were making it difficult to breathe.

"Ms. Knight again, Steed, and...I'm not needed," she said with a matching smile: warm, frayed, brilliant. She clutched a single red chrysanthemum.

"Damn." Taking the flower with a correct bow and tucking it with care into his — conspicuously empty — buttonhole, Steed closed the door, helped her out of her coat, guided her into the den and enfolded her in a winged chair before the hearth. "So, which would you like first: a drink, an understanding ear, a sparring partner, or a fist applied to a well-deserving noggin?"

Good, because come to think of it I've posted all the entries of Lulu's Journal I'd written; I just never finished that story.

Here. The AURON unit has several settings, including....

Your AURON unit may be adapted to child-minding mode in an emergency. The AURON unit provides basic child protection, nourishment, instruction, and medical care; however, children will probably have more fun with the KIMAHRI or RIKKU units.

Is your life boring? Set AURON unit to Troublemaker setting, and he will charge off in a random direction with unpredictable and often chaotic results. USE THIS SETTING WITH CAUTION.

Phrase-a-Day Setting:
Your AURON unit may be set to issue pithy sayings daily, on the hour, on on a per-incident basis. For example, "The red carpet has teeth" or "That's how it's done." Warning: Excessive use of Pithy Phrase Trigger may cause AURON unit to drop into failsafe mode, in which AURON unit may be silent, emit grunts, or fall back on his default phrase, "This is your story." Recharging him at a "Save Point" should restore full functionality.

Another vote for 'Auron Operator's Manual'

The 'snowmobile' title makes me think of the FFX scene. I usually get Lulu, but the last play-through Rikku ended up on the snowmobile with Tidus. That was a much better scene IMO.

If you get the rare ride with Auron or Kimahri (see icon)...

"Wait!" Lulu was hanging back from the snowmobiles with arms crossed.

Blocking out the inevitable lecture, Rikku felt one more stab of disappointment: Lulu had stood up for her, but she was still Yevonite. "Wakka's walking too, y'know," she said, swinging a leg over the seat.

The mage eyed the machina uneasily. "I'd...prefer to ride with you."

"Oh!" Rikku blushed. "Sorry...I thought...hey, hop on!"

The mage perched sidesaddle— was she afraid of nothing? —and slipped her arms around the girl's middle. "Thank you," she said, voice strained.

Okay, so Ms. Thundara-Your-Ass was afraid of machina. Ironic, really. Grinning like a bomb, Rikku resisted the urge to gun the motor as they started off.
