In the country of Margherita, lying directly in the center, is the city of Fiori. Their motto? "The People Prosper, The City Prospers." They live by it. Most have died for it.

And indeed, the city has prospered. It's blossomed, much like the flower of its name, into one of the most alive towns in all of the country... even though its history is bloody. Struggles. War. Criminal activity.

Many people believe that those who live in Fiori are destined for great things, and they immigrate to the town in droves, hoping to pinch a penny for themselves.

What they don't know is that once they enter Fiori, they'll never be able to leave. Nor will they ever know the meaning of "security" ever again. Not while they are in control. Not while the families bicker to themselves, attempting a balance of power. Not while the crime syndicate rules.

la_stessa_cosa is a panfandom Alternate Universe role-play loosely based off of the history of organized crime. Anything that happens here is not based off of actual events/places/etc.

This role play takes place in the city of Fiori, where five families secretly fight against one another to rule at the top. Those five families are: the Rosso, with their don Axel leading; the Viola, headed by Marluxia; the Bianco, with Rufus Shinra at the top; the Giallo, fronted by the manic Larxene; and the Nero, with "The Bloody Valentine" keeping watch.

This RP opened as of July 7th, 2007. Many positions and tons of characters are still currently available. Our plot is still in its very early stages. Currently we have players from series such as Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Batman, CSI, Sailor Moon, and more! If there's a fandom you enjoy, we'll accept characters from it--anime, tv, book, video game, you name it! The more the merrier. We hope to see you soon!

PAIXAO - A Kingdom Hearts RPG.

Strange things are happening.

Sora has locked the doors to all the worlds, but one has either been reopened or never closed to begin with. Like a vacuum, it sucks beings from others into its own, yet the reason for this is unknown. Dimensions cross in this place, and anyone can come across different versions of people they once knew—both those alive, and those that have passed on—for there is more than one physical body and more than one time frame connected to every heart.

Whoever they may be, all that are chosen to come find themselves in a very peculiar city—both its populace and setting are timeless and innocent, resembling something pulled out of a children's fairytale, yet the situation at hand is only a premise for darker things.

The world of Paixao is indeed a curious one; the entirety of it seems to be encased within various domes divided into sections which change according to weather and time. There are neither plants nor animals, simply faux representations of such: formed of stone, glass, fabric, and other materials; in spite of this, food and drink is mysteriously plentiful. Its people are all young and of pale visage and features, their personalities apparently devoid of any displeasure or the need to question the state of their being.

The only creatures that inhabit the world, besides humans and humanoids, are strange white, blue-eyed creatures: Lumens. Often compared to Heartless, it is easy to see they are the creatures born from a heart completely encompassed with light, and they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes even resembling the wildlife Paixao otherwise lacks. How they got there, and why they have only ever been seen in this particular world is beyond anyone's knowing; however, thus far, they seem to be relatively harmless—if not helpful—beings that live true to their name. But as the saying goes... it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

Thought I'd just say that I've changed my name from angelicrinoa to this one. So you'll see this one instead.

Combat King

After all these years (ahem, four or five, actually) I've decided to stop hoarding my collection of zell-main/ff8 doujinshi to myself and start scanning them for a zell shrine site. I'm currently seeking anything with Zell in at least a supporting role (but main preferred).

Things I'm looking for:
*Fan fiction
*Fan art
*Web page layouts
*Translators to make scanlations for dj

The site's layout isn't totally finished yet, but there's a little teaser content up there including a raw scanlation of Zellmania. Please tell your friends and anyone else that might have anything to send me! links to pages or artists with things zell-related are also appreciated!

If you have a question, you can reply to this entry or e-mail me: PamelaRotary(at)gmail.com

p.s. Sorry, this is crossposted just about everywhere

This really isn't meant to be rude. It just kinda sounds like it for some reason. Me = bad with words I guess. And I hope you don't mind me posting. If it is unacceptable go ahead and take it down. I've gotten too confused with all the game communities I belong to. XD
move along if you dun care to FF8 rp!Collapse )

[ mood | good ]

I have started writing a FF8 fic for post Sorceress War. It's kinda a fic on a theory many people have. Can Rinoa actually be Ultimecia? Well, here's a fic about it! I only have the first chapter done. I'm not so good with wording and grammar since I just suck at the only language I speak (I write like I'm in 8th grade at the highest, too bad I'm in college... stupid highschool not teaching me anything). I hope you think it's a good start though.

first chapterCollapse )

I hope this can actually go somewhere and not be one of those projects I gave up on!

G'day [29 May 2005|06:30pm]

Just joined, looks cool, blah blah etc blah
Now to the important stuff ^_^
(ooooooo - fun bullet points!)
*FF7/FF9 kick ass
*FF8... well, c'mon. As politely as possible, it was pretty damn crap.
**Kicks Rinoa's stupid head in* I hate her soooooo much!!! Why can't she die!!???? Why??????????
*Kuja is freaking awesome. He's got the whole 'gothic bondage queen' thing going on, and who doesn't love that? He rocks because he's different and manages sexy/evil despite being somewhat...ambiguous looking. XD
*Best lead males: Cloud, Zidane
*Best lead females: Celes, Aeris, Tifa,
*Best comic relief: Zidane, FF7 Cid, Zell, The Turks
*I'm sick of Tifa vs Aeris debates. They both play important roles, are both awesome characters, but if you pay enough attention to dialogue, it's obvious who Cloud's true love is anyway. You can't change what's there no matter how much you dislike it, people. Now stew on that for a while and see if ya can figure it out.
*Haven't played X yet, but am dreading it after listening to 10-second voice sample of Yuna. *retch*

That's all for now.
Flame at will.

FF8 Trick [26 Aug 2004|04:07pm]

[ mood | awake ]

Hey ya'all I am a newbie, but I did discover a cool trick that might help you all with card games on FF8.


There is a card trick that I learned 5 years ago playing FF8. Maybe its a glitch, I dunno. All I know its very helpful and most people don't know about it.

First off, in order to get this cool trick to work you need to beat all the CC Club members before the 4th disc, this way when you do reach the fourth disc and find the Ragnarok every CC member will be abord the ship. All of the members will carry every rare card (sometimes it takes sevreal battles before they will put fourth their rare cards)

Now here is the trick, as I said before every CC member with have rare cards - face cards, GF's, rare monsters. You name it, every card is there. So, as I have found, if you aquire a rare card and refine it you can actually return to that person whom you won the card from and they will have that same card again (after you refine it)This means you can get unlimited amount of very helpful items

EX: The Diamond twins carry the chubby chocobo card which can refine into 100 Luv Luv G's. Now this item is VERY dire if you want to get every character compatable 100% with every GF. 1 Luv Luv G will raise a character 20 compatable pts with every GF. So if you get the card, refine it, level up your compatability, and then go back to the twins you can keep getting 100 Luv Luv G's until all your characters are 100% compatable with every GF.

Note: This will also work with aquiring 100 Holywars, 100 Mega elixers, and many more items that will make Ultimica's castle a good bit easier.

2nd Note: Sometimes a CC member wont hand you his/her rarest card right off the bat. Sometimes you will need to fight multiple battles until they use their rare card.

I hope this makes sense -_-

But most of all, I hope this will help you guys!!

Hi kids I'm new here. I find that my favorite final fantasy games are the even ones.

Anyways I have a question. Does anyone have a good way to beat Sorceress Adel? I always loose after fighting her for like an hour. Its so aggravating. Thanks for any help thats given

Squall is seriously the worst Final Fantasy hero of all time, and thats saying alot because I'm counting Zidane as better than him.

Seifer was 10x cooler and I wish there were more scenes in FFVIII where Seifer kicked the shit out of that prick. I mean, at least Seifer had character and personality, every other line out of Squall's mouth was '...whatever'

Oh, and dont get me started on Rinoa! That little tramp.

Hey Peoples.
I'm a newbie, I just created my OWN balamb garden RPG thingie..
anywho, Since I don't know the code for making a link through one word (Like HERE or all that kinda stuff) I'm not going to post the link just yet. I'd like to know how to do that First, before I put it up.
There's no entries yet, but I'm just waiting for a proper first entry, so I can be in Character.
I'm kind of OOC now, so I can introduce myself, and I think it'd be cool if this were an RPG, I like RPG's.
I came across FF VIII by accident, my parents just happened to buy it because it was a playstation game, and I only have...4.
Including FF. The owner of the shop threw in the Strat guide for free..
This is just my little intro for now,
Thanks for reading,

Why is FF8 such yaoi/hentai bait? [16 Jul 2003|04:09pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Not to give the impression that I dislike such stuff, you know, but really.. it seems weird to me how much fan art/fan fiction one finds where the various male characters find they only like each other, leaving the female cast just.. also there. Or the girls are made into total sluts, and there's a whole lot of "teh s3xX0R" as the kids are calling it these days.

It's in RP, too.. shit, on certain FF8 mushes they call Balamb Garden "The Love Boat". What's up with that?

Oh, and I just joined. Howdy, folks.

FFX2 [16 Jul 2003|10:07am]

I was just wondering what everyone is thinking about the new Final Fantasy X-2. I'm pretty skeptical about it myself. From what I've read it's supposed to be less linear than the first one though, so that's a good thing. One thing that I was wondering was if they would have aeons in the game since in the last one you had to kill off all of them at the very end. Has anyone heard anything about that?
