Final Fantasy V: Fight!


(no subject)

Oh hi :D! I have a tumblr and thought I'd spam it with some FF5 artwork. The vast majority of it is fan-art picked up long ago from people I no longer remember. Here's the link: http://ajora.tumblr.com/tagged/FF5

Warning: I am chill with just about every pairing, but mostly post Faris/Lenna. The tag will be updated pretty much whenever.

Don't you hate it when you come to a fandom 10-20 years too late?

I concluded my first playthrough of FFV LAST WEEK. It was the Anthology version with its execrable translation, but as a translator I can prize out meaning from bad subtitles fairly well and reconstitute what I'm missing. Also, I read the GBA script posted online after each playing session.

I am forty years old, yet I fell for this charming game, despite its flaws. It reminds me of games I played as a munchkin. At any rate, I have a few offerings for fellow fans.

(1) A couple of icons:


(2) A Faris-centric fanfic written in a gloriously mannered style to match Faris' dress sense in Amano's concept art:
The Princess and the Pirate

(3) A Faris fan page.

(4) This is NOT my work, but I adore it: a watercolor painting of Faris and Syldra (click to view original): 

Faris and Hydra

Final Fantasy V: Gilgamesh


(no subject)

Hi! Welcome! I meant to do a starter post forever ago, but got so caught up in rl work and other things that it kept slipping my mind. So, sorry about that.

Welcome to the FF5 fandom comm. We're here to squee about fandom, discuss things, and generally enjoy the game in all its permutations and maybe even Legend of the Crystals, and whatever else you may think to bring up. Have fun!

Okay, so I did mean to include content as well as an intro post. When I first started with FF5 fandom, the only translation available was the Mark Rosa translation and the fan-made rom. 56.6 modems were considered fast back then and the fandom was very small and mostly concentrated on the Japanese side. Japanese fandom drew fan-arts and occasionally did short stories, but that's about it. Now? Japanese fandom makes animated FF5 music videos and I am so pleased to see it get the fandom love it deserves. I will share my findings! Please note that I had nothing to do with the making of any of these and don't claim them as my own.

- Record of the ExDeath War
- Rhythm Tengoku x FF5 parody! (this is crack)
- Crossover with The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi
- Crossover with Sailor Moon
- Crossover with the Dragon Quest anime
- Crossover with Lucky Star
- Crossover with Ojamajo Do Re Mi
- Faris failing at karaoke
- Dancers Faris & Lenna Caramelldansen. In case you're not sick of the meme yet.
- Fan-animated version of the ending, warning for spoilers

Because Dissidia has Butz and ExDeath, it gets an honorary mention here.
- Dissidia x Cowboy Bebop crossover
- Warrior of Light's Boot Camp

There are more, of course, but I am tired and need to go to bed. Enjoy!
