7th-Jul-2010 02:00 pm - Nasdack: If Talking Were Effective, Yelling Would Be Academic, 1/? (Rufus/Balthier/Tseng & guests)
One morning I woke up and realised I could make Rufus terrifying. My life has not been the same since. Many thanks to [profile] pere_chan and [profile] dnatio_memoriae for flailing through betajobs, and much has changed since - though, since it's me, not necessarily for the better... With these boys I think "worse" is always a better option.

If Talking Were Effective, Yelling Would Be Academic (1/?)

Fandom: FFVII/FFXII [community profile] nasdack AU
Characters: Rufus, Balthier, Tseng; Cast of Office Gawkers: Reno, Rude, Elena
Rating: PG13
Summary: Rufus, Enfant Terrifying. Since it would be bad advice to tell any of them to talk things out, Rufus opts for alternatives.

3275 words of ?!?!

'Draw,' Rufus saysore slowly, rolling up the cuffs of his pristinely pressed white shirt with his ringed fingers, 'the shutters.'
28th-May-2009 02:51 am - Final Fantasy VII/Highlander: The Business of Fear
The Business of Fear

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (OGC)/Highlander (/Baccano!)
Characters: Rufus, Methos; cameos by Tseng and Luck
Rating: Soft R
Summary: Rufus needs men who are know something of the business of fear.

Notes: Runs in the same line as New Men (Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII), but you don't need to read it to read this! Written for the no_true_pair prompt: Rufus is bound and blinded -- does Methos try to help, or take advantage of the situation?

4952 words and Rufus doing some recruiting!


Hide and seek is something Methos has come to be good at over the years, but he has absolutely no illusions about playing against the Shinra Company. )
17th-May-2009 04:31 pm - Final Fantasy VII: Year One (Reeve, Veld, Lazard, Tseng, Rufus, Midgar, &c.)
This fic officially took my brain, injected a thousand CCs of politics into it, beat it up and left me staggering about wildly. I haven't written something like this, I think, since Empery.

The last (and crowning) jewel of the Honourable Men triple bill (they're all standalones, though, so no need to read through).

I humbly request that you give this one a try. ♥ Okay going to go expire from exhaustion now.

Year One

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (BC through CC)
Characters: Lazard-Tseng-Rufus, Veld, Reeve, does the City of Midgar count?
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Spans through Crisis Core and Before Crisis backstory. You don't need to know BC, but it helps, and there's a tiny appendix at the bottom of the fic to help you if you'd like.
Summary: From the journals of Urban Development, filling in the lives and empty spaces in Midgar.

7575 words and Midgar being alive.

One gets the impression that we shall soon be bringing them brighter futures as well. )
17th-Oct-2008 01:04 am - Final Fantasy VII/XII: (...) Theoretical Joint Bunansa-Shinra Empire (Balthier/Tseng, Rufus/Tseng)
IT'S GROWING INTO SOME BIZARRE KIND OF MONSTER.

Some Things You Can't Buy, For Everything Else There's The Theoretical Joint Bunansa-Shinra Empire

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stockmarket
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Rufus/Tseng
Rating: Soft R
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: The stock markets exploded. Balthier, Rufus and Tseng are hot. This comment thread happened.
Inflicted upon the world by: [info]logistika_nyx and [info]karanguni

Previous episodes:

Part the first
Part the second

You don't really have to read them in any order. I don't even know if we have an order.

2363 words and ho'shit, five thousand backstories! \o\

'Good boy,' Tseng says with a smile. )
14th-Oct-2008 07:05 pm - Final Fantasy VII/XII: Strange Untitled Stockmarket AU (Tseng/Balthier, Tseng/Rufus)
Strange Untitled Stockmarket!AU

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stock Exchange
Rating: PG-99
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Tseng/Rufus
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: It's all [info]logistika_nyx's fault (on LJ). A good chunk of this belongs to her, adapted to fit the situation and tense. You can read the original crack-ery here to see precisely which bits. Nyx: I apologise. Profusely. But probably not profusely enough.

Mostly, this is just a trader!AU: in which Tseng and Balthier make money on the gone-to-shit stock markets of our world. And Rufus waggles his eyebrows a bit. Hooray!

2425 words and oh, such a hell I am going to for this. Beware un-beta'd tense shifts!

'Are you an optimist?' Balthier would say into the receiver, when Tseng picked up. )
9th-Jul-2008 11:01 pm - FFVII: Restorations, Interlude I (Rufus, Tseng, Reeve cameo)
Rufus' interlude for Restorations, go! \o/ Suit!sortofkink, also... sort of go!

Title: Restorations, Interlude I
Rating: PG
Characters: Rufus/Tseng, Reeve
Summary: Even in the aftermath of everything, few men would tell Rufus Shinra what to do with his life.
Warnings: I worldbuild too much. Machiavelli is probably rolling in his grave. Rufus Shinra is an asshole, also.

Restorations I

2657 words and finally managing to manhandle Rufus into a suit. Sorta. Kinda. Almost.

Dying, to Rufus, was a concept seen in relative terms. )
30th-Jun-2008 11:27 am - FFVII: Restorations I (Tseng, Rufus, Reeve, Wutai, Midgar)
This is the first part of a longer fic that I don't have the time to write as a one shot. It's - just read it, okay? I'll buy you cookies if you do. Or something. 8D Based on a canon-AU; I am wondering if [info]roads_diverged will let me post this there? HI? HI?

Title: Restorations I
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, Rufus, Reeve, Wutai, Midgar, everyone.
Summary: And Shinra said, we are going to save the world, and then said, but let us start with restorations.
Warnings: First part of a multiparter - one or two more chapters planned. Canon AU. "What happens after Midgar". Gen, with slash when you squint. You may have to squint less in other chapters. Rufus Shinra is in the god damned house.

2410 words, and Rufus would like you to know that he is perfectly harmless, thank you.

They sent him into Wutai because it was the predictable thing to do, and these days it paid to do things predictably. )

[and random ad again:] Go forth, ye kind hearted people, I know you want to.
11th-Jun-2008 09:27 pm - Final Fantasy VII: Autumn Has Departed (Tseng)
So, instead of working on Springkink or 0TP, what do I do? Collect Turk!prompts and write 'em, naturally. 8D Going to hell now.

Title: Autumn Has Departed
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, Rufus cameo, mentions of Zack
Summary: After the stigma comes the cleansing. Everyone in Shinra has their own forms of absolution; Tseng's is pilgrimage.
Warnings: Set after AC, with a whole lot of arbitrary worldbuilding thrown in for kicks.

1527 words and this waka:

If I knew the way
I'd seek it out and set forth too;
With scarlet leaves
Woven into offerings,
Autumn has departed


'There's something I need to do,' Tseng replied. )
10th-Jun-2008 05:15 pm - Final Fantasy VII: 5 Times Tseng Did Interesting Negotiations (Tseng, Tseng/Rufus)
Irrelevant to fic below, but: I want to write Turkfic so hard right now, but I've got this block the size of Jupiter in my brain, or something. Leave prompts, flist? Cookies if they include Tseng? Extra chocolate chips if they include, say, a way a Turk'd... deal with a target?

For [info]aikonamika (Turks on a no-kill job):

Title: 5 Times Tseng Did Interesting Negotiations
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, implied Tseng/Rufus and a whole bunch of cameos
Warnings: I jump canons like I jump rope.
Summary: Tseng doesn't have to get blood on his hands to make a point.

1252 words and more timeline jumps than you can shake a stick at.

Looking back, Veld had found it as important to teach Tseng how to speak as it was to teach him how to kill. )
8th-Jun-2008 04:37 pm - Baccano!/FFVII: New Men (Luck/Tseng/Rufus)
Here I point to my fic, and I point to New Men at [info]no_true_pair.

Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII, Luck/Tseng/Rufus.

It's a new age when men are unafraid of being exactly what they are; Luck envies them enough to put on the suit and call himself Shinra. (2822 words.)
26th-Apr-2008 12:06 pm - Final Fantasy VII: Survivor: Icicle Inn (AU; Tseng/Rufus, Reno cameo)
I wish I had an excuse for this, but I really, really don't. *beams* Well, it was written for [info]roads_diverged (prompt: reality show), but some things you can't even blame on prompts and AUs.

Title: Survivor: Icicle Inn
Characters: Tseng/Rufus; Reno cameo
Rating: PG (swearing)
Summary: Tseng is going to have to outwit, outplay and outlast whether he likes it or not.
Warnings: More AU than you can shake a stick at. Humour. Probably more of that than you can shake a stick at, too. I think using the tv show Survivor also counts as pretty brain breaking. The application form is real, too.

3139 words and a cunning, cunning plan.

They signed him up for it as prank; well, sort of. )
8th-Apr-2008 11:56 pm - Final Fantasy VII/Crisis Core: Elevator Action (Tseng, Rufus, Lazard)
God, I hate writing young Rufus; he's a pain in the ass. A bit experimental and crazy; this fic really didn't want to get written properly. D:

Title: Elevator Action
Characters: Tseng, Rufus, Lazard and ambiguous relationships in between
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Intra-departmental (and intra-personal) relationships are more than just complicated. In between War and conspiracy, family and duty, Shinra gets by.
Warnings: Mangles the timeline a little; Rufus is 17, but considering his mental age, I don't think I'll get struckthrough. Lazard's taken as Rufus big, bad brother. Set just before the beginning of Crisis Core.

2749 words. It's like one big Shinra orgy, just without the sex. 8D

The man was a friend, but sometimes all that 'friend' meant in this place was 'accomplice'. )
6th-Apr-2008 09:19 pm - Final Fantasy VII: School Days, (Tseng, Rufus, Reeve cameo; college student AU)
Title: School Days (Are The Best Days Of Your Life)
Pairing: Tseng, Rufus, Reeve cameo
Rating: PG
Summary: Tseng's brilliant, but bored; Rufus is bored, but brilliant; Reeve just wants to build things and teach his classes in peace, damn it, so count him out of the Junon University ratrace, and he wouldn't mind them leaving off the world domination either.
Warnings: Written for [info]roads_diverged's theme of "college students". This one's a lighthearted jaunt through the woods; don't expect anything too serious from the boys. *g* Set in a quasi-Midgar universe, contorted and then spat out again.

2393 words, with plenty of age!bending and Rufus in jeans.

'Oh, no, Rufus, if you want to do any recruiting, do it on your own turf - leave my kids alone.' )
