Yup. I'm holding one. Because why not? You know that I am well obsessed with something if I end up holding a contest for it.

You all know that I ship this like crazy pants, maybe more than anything else because it was such a part of my childhood that it's harder to shake off than most other things. I have been shipping this for twelve years. How sad is that?

CHECK IT OUT HERE: crispy-gypsy.tumblr.com/post/2…

So if you like the pairing, take a shot! I don't expect a lot of entries, since this is a somewhat obscure pairing, so you've probably got a decent chance.

Any questions or comments or ideas for prizes or whatever, feel free to say and I'll get back to you! Going back to work now. Thanks!

I wrote a fic for them back when it came out. Haven't thought about that in a long time though, hmmm...

Athanasia, right? (I am pretty sure I've read all the Fremarant fic that is available on the internet)

Heh, indeed! Yeah, it's a pretty small segment, so I'm not surprised. I remember babelfish-translating fic on Japanese sites just to read more of it back then; I doubt any of it's even up now, though...

There's still one site that's still up, I think. I replayed the game recently, so I went through (am going through?) a resurgence of my old OTP, and I checked. Not too much has developed since the first time I wandered through the fandom, sadly.

Though maybe that is why I am doing so much drawing/small ficlets of them, I am being a jerk and trying to squeeze out a little more.

Anyroad, Athanasia was one of my favorites when I was a kid (It is so WEIRD thinking about how that was TEN YEARS AGO), and I remember trying to do a comic of it that failed horribly because I couldn't draw back then. Thanks for writing it, anyroad. :3

Definitely liking seeing your new stuff! Especially since it's just so canon-looking and all. I liked a lot of the fanart I found then, probably still have it saved on the computer somewhere, but a lot of them did seem to have Freya as human with big ol' ears, or Amarant as way too pretty, which, well...just isn't them.

Aw, thanks :D I'm glad you liked it! I wish I had the inspiration to finish the sequel, maybe I should replay the game too :P And yeah, it really does not seem that long ago, but I guess it was.

Yeah, I think that was one of the problems with it being generally an anime fanbase, since Final Fantasy IX wanders a bit away from the typical Nomura prettiness into something dangling on the corner of cartoon. Which is why I always liked it. I don't blame them comepletely because Freya and Amarant are a bit difficult to draw when you're used to just drawing pretty humans all the time... but I was always slightly bothered with pretty!Amarant because if there's anything that Amarant isn't, it's an angsting bishounen. Or maybe I'm just a jerk that feels that Amarant's "ugliness" is a big part of his character.

Though the thought of a VincentValentine!Amarant is hilarious. I should do a "if Nomura designed FFIX" picture of of Amarant being bishie and Freya lookin like Fran or something, high heels and skimpy outfits and all.

Anyroad, yeah, Athanasia was always one of the ones I went back to as a kid (and reread a month or so ago when the game came back into my consciousness). Maybe one of these days I will do proper fan art of it. An ode to the days before I wore proper bras.

Yeah, it did have its own style to it - but that was one of the reasons I liked it, too. It was a very interesting world, even if I could think of no reason (besides A Wizard Did It) that Treno would always be in nighttime. I have good memories of playing it with my sister on breaks home from school.

That would be an awesome and hilarious picture :D High heels on Freya pretty much would have to be like Fran, wouldn't they...
