I want to talk about Final Fantasy Suscitatio XIII in this particular journal. For those who don't know, Final Fantasy Suscitatio XIII is my response to the... dividing nature of Lightning Returns. I was generally displeased with how it played out, so I decided, back when the game was first announced (and I mean the day of the announcement), to create my own version of the final entry in the trilogy. As more details were unveiled, more of the story fell in place, until I now have a semi-epic fanfic that I hope will be entertaining regardless of where one falls on the love-it-like-it-hate-it spectrum of LR. Basically, I wanted to shape the narrative to be more like the first game, exploring all of the characters and tying all of their stories together more coherently. The open nature of LR made it so that no character's story could ever reference any other except with extremely vague, passing mentions at best, so I wanted to fix that. For example, Sazh has a larger role this time, and other characters generally left out of the spotlight of the story have larger roles, as well.

I know I haven't been on this site much. I've been busy doing other things or spending time on tumblr instead (which requires less time from me, admittedly, because I mostly reblog or write short snippets as of late as opposed to writing longer pieces or creating artwork, which is all I generally have time or energy for during the week, unfortunately). Still, I'd like to ask that, those of you following me and my stories, to please give the story a read. I'd really appreciate the feedback, and the amount of time and creative energy this thing requires means that I'd appreciate any indication that anyone's reading it.

I'm not begging, because I'm still planning to finish it completely. With that being said, feedback gives my creative juices a jolt and makes it much easier to find inspiration, time, energy, and motivation so that I don't put out chapters that overall feel "meh" instead of "ooh". I can't replicate the (unexpected) success of Hearts in Chaos, because it's a different kind of story. It still has love as the backbone to the narrative, which will come more to the forefront in various ways as the story goes on, but the overall genre is different.

So please, if you haven't taken the time to read it and provide feedback, I implore you to do so. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you! :D

Hey there Genesis. Man, it's been a while. You probably don't remember from how long I've been gone but, :iconnoctiana:. Your fellow CaiusxLightning shipper, which I now fully approve of after going through the events of Lightning Returns and being a full-fledged NoelxYeul shipper. Your writing is excellent as always, I'm glad to see that hasn't changed ^^
