Accidently sent the review; anyways, love what you've done with Ultimecia too. I've always like her and her 'relationship' with Squall, they truly are fated for each other, in a sense. Though I have to wonder, is Artemis her real name as revealed by an Ultimania or somthing of the sort, something you made up, a reference I'm just not getting, what?

I really like this amalgam world you've created here and in SCE. Though again I have to wonder how it came to be. Something I'd actually like to read is Lightning and Squall (& friends) thinking about just what would happen if the worlds did seperate as they were, especially after they had kids. That's some nightmare fuel right there.

Anyways, love your work, keeping up with it, looking forward to more.

Squall/Lightning with a little Squall/Ulty on the side? Fantastic. Love how you've written Squall and Light in this.
undertaker chapter 1 . 4/1/2012
this is the best ever, i like it when squall managed to open his heart and dare to be a man to express and to tell his girlfriend anything of everything, i hated when the man is gay enough to keep his secret by himself especially when it could endanger himself, that sooooo cowardly bastard! and of cos girl always run away when they freak out of something but they usually comeback to help, girl easily fall for man who always respect, protect, honoured, love and honest to their lover... if she's never comeback then she is stupid dumbass

btw xu i know you fishie, but then again in a good way, job well done!

XeS chapter 1 . 3/8/2012
Nice story. But the only thing that was annoying was that cunt in Squall's dream with her silly man shit. Bitch need to be pimp slap ans shut the fuck up.
Jupiter's Promise chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Ah, so is this the origins of Griever we're witnessing? Dark, yes, but well done. Love seeing those FF8 characters. Thanks, as always. -JP
AdOkufukai chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Splendid work! I once thought that YLDWS was the main reason why Lightning wanted Squall to go over mission details that involved killing, but it nagged me that it was something else. This makes me wonder even more about the events in World B. Hopefully, it will be answered by your future fics. :D

Whenever I visit the DFF page and see either your fic or Traingham's at the top, I automatically think the other's will be right below. How often it turns out as expected. Do you have a schedular conspiracy or something? lol

This fic is automatically a favourite for several reasons: post World B's verse, SeeDs doing what SeeDs do, Xu and her magnificence, homage to LTRA (and yes you did spoil it. Is that a little Prishe/Ulti friendship I spot there?)

Let me start with the SeeD portion first. As horrible as it sounds, FFVIII fandom really, uh, needs more of this kind. People are too happily embrace the illusion of an agent of peace that Balamb Garden creates, partly thanks to its unique, bright design. Cid is one hell of a mastermind to have built it. In my headcanon, the work SeeD does should be among the line of, or entails what you've described here: not pretty at all; and that's exactly the reason I have issues with many post-game Squall/Rinoa fics where Rinoa easily fits in the role of an adviser on how to run Garden, simply because she's his girlfriend. Hell, I'm inclined to think even Lightning is not capable of it. Years ago I read DK's Devotion which in part deals with the same thing, only with Rinoa in place of Lightning. It's pretty interesting to study his work with yours side by side, to see the difference on how Rinoa and Lightning reacts to the same circumstance.

Love the detail about Squall pushing the agreement about SeeDs operating in other countries by the way. It's an interesting point.

I wish I could say something about Xu, but apparently I can't really conjure up anything other than repeat what both you and Traingham said: she's a magnificent bastard. Oh wait, I also love how Squall fully utilizes her and how her attitude really doesn't betray any of that at all. Kind of feel bad for Quistis though. She's never been the right one to help Squall, not strong enough to.

I'm not sure how this would sound to you, but the last portion with Ultimecia, I was like this: "Hey, he's talking about Squall/Ulti connection in world B, where he was her knight and fought against Lightn- wait, that's Traingham's S&S- okay, there's Artemis, and is that a reference to Prishe? Okay, this must mean LTRA..." See? You two have been dominating this place with the Squall/Ulti/Lightning/Prishe rectangle (plus harem on the side), sometimes it's pretty easy to forget whose headcanon is whose. I think it's hilarious by the way. XD

Anyway, this just opens more questions about this verse. How does second chance work out for everyone? How is Ultimecia now? Will we see the Chaos guys eventually? As borrowed from a LotR meme: one does not simply stop asking questions about this verse. XD
wildorchids chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
yesss of cos, ever heard "there is a strong woman behind every successful man" your story is suited that phrases...what light did is right, all squall have to do only to submit himself fully to her with honesty..yeah that what partner do...

***you're the best squallxlightning writer, it's believable, so convincing..

and this is complete oneshot i mean, we don't always see something really complete..i prefer oneshot in every title than drabbles of oneshot in one title..thanks
ChocolateTruffles chapter 1 . 3/3/2012
Omigawd! elements of Scenery of Everyday plus a very unique angle on how Lightning got together with Squall with full knowledge of his work. :) Gotta say I wish this was more than a one-shot! Hmmm Ultemicia is Artemis? I would love to read up further on this if you have some time :) I also like how you managed to blend it humor and seriousness into this chapter. Grammar-wise I don't think I caught anything that requires correction. Story flow-wise I like how you managed the transitions form thoughts to speech. One thing about the ethanol though, I read in a previous medical journal that high alcohol content (ie. pure ethanlol) can damage the brain hah just thought I'd share. Thanks for writing another FarronXLeonhart fic to cherish. Hope to read more soon! :D

Indurrago chapter 1 . 3/3/2012
I actually came in expecting this to be that expansion of that other SCE chapter with the Witches but oh well. Somebody needs to make a one-shot with Squall one-upping Xu for once. :D Just like when I read the SCE chapter I find asking myself what would I do in Squall's place and would I let Lightning have that much control(whether she liked liked it or not). And I had a feeling the lady in the dreams was Ultmeicia. A happy reincarnated Ultmeicia sounds intriguing. But I'm glad it wasn't Adele. Poor Laguna...:D
