Author has written 2 stories for Final Fantasy VIII.

Would you believe it, Figgy Bonbon is not my real name. It’s Ally with that spelling like Ally McCoist which is ironic because I support Celtic (only Scottish people will get that reference). Just for the record I also support Manchester United and Real Madrid but that’s neither here nor there on this site. I am a fully published writer (well okay, self-published) who writes in a variety of genres, but my favourites are action and angst. I am a fanatical fan of Final Fantasy VIII but not very many other games in the series (although it only really started to get bad at Final Fantasy X – I would be insanely happy if I never heard the phrase “this is my story” ever again). I write in this ‘verse because I like to think I’m good at it. All other forays into other ‘verses have been unmitigated disasters, not to mention I have my own original works to deal with as well. I am willing to offer constructive criticism to anyone who asks but be warned I style myself as “King of the Uncomfortable Truth” and I can be so harsh some people have accused me of flaming. I just told it how I see it. There are a lot of ‘verses I will review in so if you write in the following feel free to ask.

Books: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, CHERUB series, Alex Rider series, Artemis Fowl series,

Films: Star Wars, James Bond (Dalton is the best – Final), Serenity

TV Shows: Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Smallville, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Arrow, Supergirl, Game of Thrones.

Video Games: Final Fantasy VIII, Pokemon (Gens 1-4), Call of Duty


Hell Still Waits (Final Fantasy VIII) – The first in a series I call the Fire saga this is a darker offering than the game that spawned it, focusing on the trials of Seifer Almasy some years after the game. I started it on a whim, wondering where it would go and it mutated into an action spectacular with generous lashings of romance and my own patented sense of humour. I think it went quite well and the fifty odd reviewes seemed to agree with me.

Let Us Burn (Final Fantasy VIII) – The sequel to Hell Still Waits, Let Us Burn is even darker if possible, focusing largely on Rinoa but with everyone else getting major time as well. I rated it M, thanks to the language, torture and a graphic sex scene (the first I ever had the courage to post) and while I don’t think it’s as good as HSW I am still immensely proud of this fic. Fair warning; Squall and Rinoa fans, this is NOT a fic for you but if you feel compelled to read it anyway, please do and leave a review, even if it’s just to fire venomous death threats my way.

Hell Still Waits reviews
Maybe Seifer Almasy did deserve to go to hell but he wasn't in any hurry to embrace it and he would fight to his last breath to avoid it. He was no Sorceress' Knight, young revolutionary or aspiring SeeD cadet. He was Seifer Almasy and he would fight his past to the death until it killed him. Contains strong language, violence and scenes of torture.
