Well, having rewatched AC last night, it really made me feel like reading some fic. However, with the size of the fandom, it's hard to dig through and find all the good stuff.
So, I thought it would nice/useful if people recommended their favourite fanworks (not just fic - also AMVs, art etc.), so people could quickly find some good quality things they haven't read/seen before.
A couple of my favourites;Type:
FicTitle: A Long, Hard RoadAuthor:
Five years after the end of the game, Hojo is in an all-out war against the Planet and the ShinRa armies, led by now-general Cloud Strife. What will happen, when ShinRa makes a desperate decision to resurrect the very person who nearly killed them all?Comments:
If you haven't read this, then... you really should. :p It is, IMO, the
best piece of fanfiction around, any fandom. It's not for those who like short stories... at over a million words, it's long
. But, it's utterly brilliant: until AC (or even, despite AC), this was my post-game canon. Plot, OCs, characterisation... all wonderful. Though it is about 80% angst. :P This next comment will probably please some and put off others: later on in the fic, it is Cloud/Sephiroth. But...wow. You haven't read believable C/S until you've read this. I'll stop gushing now, but it is highly recommended. :DType:
So, really not the sort of music I like - but it's just so well done. The timing is great, and despite there being a couple of slightly awkward transitions, it just works extremely well. The lyrics of the song are rather apt too. Partly I just like it because it focuses on a certain impressive fight near the end. :p Obviously, spoilers.
