Because I don't quite have the energy to do fifty. Anyway, the prompts are the first ten of Set Delta from [livejournal.com profile] 1sentence. Wrote this because there is a distinct lack of English Golbez x Kain fanfiction.

01 - Air

Kain knows he's falling in too deep, that Golbez's hold over him is just going to get tighter and tighter, but he can't bring himself to pull away for a fresh breath.

02 - Apples*

Kain doesn't see the apple coming until it hits him in the face, and he's greeted with a disappointed-looking Golbez; the warlock promptly mutters, "I was hoping you would catch it."

03 - Beginning

Golbez holds him close, a hand protectively on his shoulder, as they watch the Giant in all its glory; Kain is thankful for the comfort of such a constant and familiar thing in the madness of the changing world.

04 - Bugs

Kain is well aware that Golbez holds the nobility of Baron in low regard, yet for some reason Golbez tolerates his presence.

05 - Coffee

Golbez is so quick to spring to life in the morning that Kain has no time to catch up.

06 - Dark

Once, Kain catches his reflection in the mirror, and he doesn't remember having dark rings around his eyes before, nor does he remember ever losing any sleep.

07 - Doors

Both servants and soldiers know better than to even attempt seeking out either of them when Golbez's doors are locked.

08 - Drink

When they meet again many years after Zeromus, one of the first things Golbez does is to take Kain out for a few drinks.

09 - Duty

If there is one thing Kain knows Golbez shares with him, it is the strength of their loyalty to Baron, and for Kain, to Golbez.

10 - Despair

"I shall miss your presence by my side," whispers Golbez as he walks away with Fusoya, though only Kain hears him and the Dragoon can't help but murmur back ever so quietly, "And I yours."

* In medieval times, just tossing an apple at a woman could be enough of a marriage proposal. If the lady caught it, that meant yes.

So I was searching for FFIV fic when I found your dreamwidth; I mostly wanted to leave a comment saying I liked this.

...also. Uh. This might seem awkward. You have the same username on AO3, no? Because if so, thank you for the kudos.

Thank you! ♥ I'm mostly on LJ, though... am there for the community. This is mostly my backup (although it will get cross-posted here in all likelihood, as well as AO3). (http://moogle-workshop.livejournal.com, which is part of a Final Fantasy landcomm I help mod. It's our general fanfiction section of the community.)

...also, I swear I've seen some of your stuff somewhere before... are you on tumblr, or do you post them elsewhere? I'm getting this odd deja vu feeling and I can't place it.

(I apologise if it sounds weird. I don't mean to come off as creepy or anything, just getting this sense of 'I must have seen this person somewhere before...')

...Well. That explains it. I think I stalk your RP tumblr. (I don't actually follow it, but I check back every so often. There is not enough FFIV love in general, so I cling to whatever I can find.)

Small world, I guess? And if you want meta-coincidences, I RP Cecil in my own private little corner of the fandom. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES.

As for ff_land... you're welcome to app to classchange any time, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

That's true! And I know I always enjoy meeting a fellow fan, so may I say it's been very good talking to you?

And a friend of mine asked me if I was interested in RPing Cecil to her Kain, actually... but by and large when I prowl around the 'net I generally see more Kains than other FFIV characters. (All right. So I just imagined an army of Kains. I'm not sure if that's drool-worthy or mildly terrifying. Both?)

Oh, you're doing NaNo! Good luck with it. I considered trying it once, but Nov is usually a killer month for me.

...I have to admit I don't know how you manage to RP on either FB or Tumblr, because both of them as RP formats seem so completely alien to me. (I've tried IM formats, tabletop, and LJ.) I didn't actually try RPing canon characters 'til... oh, early this year? With FFVI's Celes, for a minigame.

...and, good gods. I just splorfled at that mental image, although I feel sorry for anyone under the direct command of Dark!Kain.

Ah, I understand that. I mostly started out with forums and LJ, since my friends who RPed were all either tabletop or LJ RPers, and so I've just stuck with it. Tumblr confuses me as a normal user, so the idea of trying to RP with it? Completely bzuh?

I am actually picturing that. I'd apologise for bunnying you, but I'm not at all sorry... and besides, all I can think now is "Will pwn Cecil with the power of nail polish." Why, self, why?

Tabletop is difficult if you don't know people who are already into it; I was lucky in that my friend is an experienced DM and she wanted to run a live game instead of having to run one over forums with people living twelve hours or more behind (I'm in GMT +8.) I understand about the LJ/forums as well - I got used to them because I was in private threads (and still mostly am in private threads) first, and so it didn't feel as impersonal to me.

Mind? Of course not! I'm flattered, honestly. Honestly, that fic came up completely because a bunch of us started joking in chat about Cecil's amazing hair. I wrote a couple of lines and then people just started egging me on with comments and pictures of FuSoYa.

Awwww, curses. I was hoping for a WHAT SERIOUSLY WHY HAVE I NOT MET YOU BEFORE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE XD but dear god, it is still so hard to find another person in GMT+8... I don't know why, really. We're not that small, you'd think there'd be more of us, but nope. Still! You're one of the few fellow fans I've met who isn't, oh, half a world away.

...actually, I think you're the only FFIV fan I've met who isn't half a world away.

Today is a day of coincidences?

The FFIV fanbase is tiny, I guess. Most people I meet mostly like the PSX/PS2 games, which I'm fine with, but it gets a little lonely in the SNES corner sometimes. I don't even expect to meet another FF fan who's from SEAsia at all... which is odd, considering the massive turnout for things like Distant Worlds concerts. So yes, this is...

Don't mind me. I think I'm still completely astonished.

That generation being? I'm an '88 girl, so the lines are a bit murky for me - although I think mine's closer to 'growing up with the PSX' as opposed to the PS2, heh.

Ah, I see! ...I've given up on classifying things by consoles, mostly because I'm also one of those people who also gets consoles later than most - I still don't have a PS3, for example (luckily, my best friend does.) But yes, in general, most people I know are familiar with PSX/PS2, which isn't so bad for me. Talk about FF13 and I'll give you this completely blank look, though. I'm happiest with IV and VI, although I'm familiar with the FFs up to FFX.

Are you on LJ? I feel the need to add you to my friendslist if you are, now. Provided you can stand an indecent amount of fandom chatter and meme-ing.
