Author has written 1 story for Final Fantasy VIII.

The Fandom Hell Bus is a joint account, shared by Seventhe and Justira.

Right now, we're posting Same As It Never Was, the result of our work for Mega Flare, a Final Fantasy Big Bang project. The fic will also be posted at the Archive Of Our Own (here!), and you can find the authors at our email address.

We're aware that not everyone would want to read Laguna/Squall, but we hope it's a good story just for the plot, meta, and character development. So for those who'd like to give the story a shot but are leery of the Laguna/Squall, we've put together a Reading Guide.

As this site does not give us a good way to include full headers and warnings, we've included the following information here for you:

Same As It Never Was

Fandom: FFVIII

Main Cast: Squall, Rinoa, Quistis, Laguna, Ellone

Accompanied by: Kiros, Watts, Zone, Ward

Full Summary: Rinoa's gone public as a Sorceress and is campaigning for Timber's independence, Laguna's steering Esthar's re-emergence, Galbadia won't give up, Squall's dealing with the political fallout as Garden Commander -- and in case no one has enough on their plates, something's wrong with the Sorceress-Knight Bond. When terrorists attack Timber in the middle of Squall and Rinoa's argument over where the new Garden should go -- Timber or Esthar? -- they decide to take a break, hoping that if they can sort out the politics in their separate spheres, they can come back and sort through the quietly desperate mess of their private lives and repair their Bond.

Sorceresses still make the world nervous and Galbadia won't let Timber go; Esthar needs to come out of hiding and Garden needs to decide its place in the world. Four lives are unraveling -- but maybe, between them, they can find the answers...
