The Turks are the kings of spring this week, coming in with 20 points and the trophy! SOLDIER and Avalanche stayed inside with their video games. ;)

This week's prompt is #19 - First Lines

Something different this week: 

Choose one book off your bookshelf. The opening line of that book (any genre) will be the first line and the beginning of your drabble. This first line, no matter how long, will not be counted toward your 100 words. If the first line has names listed, I will allow you to change those names to reflect FFVII relevant characters and/or places. Also, please list the book that you took your first line from in your author's notes in case anyone is so intrigued that they want to read it.

So whether the first line is from The Grapes of Wrath, Harry Potter, some random romance novel or a thriller, that first line is your first line and everything after is just 100 words.

Title: Of Ephemerality and Immortality
Characters/Pairings: Vincent/Yuffie
Rating/Type: G
Team: Turks
Word Count: 100
Prompt: #18 - Spring
Author's Notes: Yuffie, in her early 30s, leaves Reeve's WRO and returns to Wutai. Vincent goes with her to Wutai as her companion.


Vincent attended his first cherry blossom festival shortly after moving to Wutai. He asked Yuffie if he should recite poetry.

“When were you born?!” Yuffie scoffed. “Two hundred and thirty years ago?”

“Seventy-three years.”

Yet he remained twenty-seven.

Old ladies in Wutai whispered of how he looked like a ghost from a folktale. There was truth in this, he was Shinra’s specter.

A fragile sea of pink floated overhead. Already blossom petals had fallen to the ground while the crowd ate, drank, and made the most of the ephemeral flowers. They enjoyed what is, for life is short.

Title: Waiting for Warmth
Characters/Pairings: Vincent/Lucrecia, Lucrecia/Hojo
Rating/Type: G
Team: Turks
Word Count: 100
Prompt: #18 - Spring


Spring arrived late in Nibelheim. Although the days had grown longer and the trees had budded, the sky remained grey, the ground muddy. Vincent scraped his shoes at the entrance of the manor. Once inside he unbuttoned his overcoat and untied his scarf. Light flooded out from the doorways of Gast’s, Hojo’s, and Lucrecia’s offices. They often worked past midnight.

Vincent wanted to visit Lucrecia but turned away when he heard Hojo speaking with her. Instead Vincent trotted up the stairs, his footfalls purposefully heavy.

If Lucrecia cared to see him, she knew where to find him. He would wait.

This week, SOLDIER took the prize for historical revisionism with 20 points and the trophy! AVALANCHE got creative for 10 points. The Turks will stick to their history textbooks, thanks. ;)

This week's prompt is #18 - Spring

Spring has well and truly sprung! At least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. ;) Spring can lead to good things - warmer days, flowers, outdoor activities, and thinly-veiled fertility festivals - or bad things, i.e. allergies. This week, get your muses out for some fresh air and sunshine as we all celebrate all things spring.

Is Aeris ready for planting season? Is Genesis cursing the ragweed? For Yuffie spring means cherry blossoms and new beginnings, but she's not the one who has to switch to the mud tires on the buggy, grumbles Barret. For Zack, spring might mean tadpoles and baby chicks, but for Cloud, spring means one thing: kite flying! Also watching out for broody mama dragons. So, two things. 

It's a Spring Fling! But only in 100 words.

October 2011
