In the Service of the Goddess [Lightning/Tifa, AU]

Title: In the Service of the Goddess
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XIII (AU)
Pairing: Lightning/Tifa
Prompt: Ice
Rating: K+
Words: 400
Spoilers?: Sort of, but I'm not sure you'd even recognize it as a spoiler unless you already knew. None for FFVII.
Author's Note: Description-heavy Lightning/Tifa AUs might just become a habit. Is that good or bad?

The guardian staggers along the path, grasping at the rope bolted to the ice-covered cliff beside her. Snow whips into her face almost as painfully as shrapnel; the wind is nearly blowing her off the trail; with every step she has to put all her weight on the rope as her fur-lined boots slip out from under her. The only threat out here is the storm, and that’s the only defense the cavern needs, but that doesn’t matter. The guardian has to patrol. She has to watch for threats to the priestess.

 

Said priestess waits in the inner chamber, in front of the wall of bluish-white that stands where an alter might. She has said all the prayers but the closing petitions, and those require the presence of the guardian. They also require a cool heart, and the priestess is not in any such mood tonight. She is furious.

One of her hands is resting on the glassy sheet of clouded ice, melting it slightly. The frozen surface is mottled, opaque in most places. She can see almost nothing of its inhabitants. A reddish curl of hair, a glimpse of something that might be blue silk or just more ice. And just a glimpse of their hands, fingers entwined and knuckles white.

They were supposed to be the last sacrifices. The elders were told: Offer these two, and no more, and the Lady of Ice will never again demand your children for her halls. And so nobly they offered to become her sacred relics, so that their people would live in the goddess’s favor, and never again need to offer sacrifice.

Except, of course, that there were more sacrifices. And are.  The sanctuary must have a priestess; the priestess must have a guardian. And so more sacrifices are marched up the mountain. Of course.

Tifa is the seventy-eighth priestess to serve in these caves. Lightning is the hundred and fourth guardian to continue these asinine patterns in weather that would make the gods themselves (except for theirs) cower.

Footsteps behind her proclaim that the hundred and fifth will not be needed yet. Tifa does not turn around. Cold fingers, fingers that have clearly been soaked through the gloves, unfold her fist and twine their hands together. For just a moment, the living sacrifices stand and watch the frozen ones, hand in hand, Lightning’s fingers spread beside Tifa’s on the ice.

Anthy with an AXE!

Pairing: Nyx/Styria

Rating: M

Prompt: Ice

Word Count: 100

Note: Aside from Jihl getting the shaft, the thing that pissed me off the most about FFXIII was the Shiva Sisters. Sexy women that form a crazy motorcycle in the 69 position? Oh hell yes. Sexy women that form a crazy motorcycle in the 69 position driven by a man that looks like the stoner younger brother of Seifer? Oh hell no. Let those gorgeous women have their fun without a man trying to control them. Screw that jazz. Aeons, Guardian Forces, Eidolons, whatever they are, I've always thought they represent something divine in their respective worlds. They're NOT meant for potheads to ride like Bigwheels, soooo....I kinda like the thought of the Shiva Sisters driving Snow crazy while he sleeps. 

He likes us, you know.
Yes, he does like us.

He likes us like 'this', doesn't he?
He likes 'this', not us.

Do we like him like this?
No, we do not.

He rides us, doesn't he?
Rides us he does.

We are not a carriage, are we sister?
No, we are ice.

We were once more, were we not?
Yes, we were more.

Do we do something about it?
Yes sister, we do something about it.

Do we ride him instead?
We do not.

No?
No.

Let him dream of...riding ice?
Yes sister, like the others before him.

Fifty-Eighth Prompt!

=D Hot damn, I'm actually on time with my update! YOUR MOD STILL LOVES YOU ALL! xD Yeah, so anyway... This week's prompt was actually a tough pick. I decided not to use a suggested one so I can have them when my brain fizzles out on any given prompt update day (and it happens often). I based this week's prompt on two things: 1. It's hot out. and 2. There haven't been any 'I' prompts. xD My reasoning makes perfect sense, yes? So this week's prompt is...

Prompt Fifty Eight - Ice

Be it an elemental obstacle, a spell, a feeling or way of being, or even in reference to a much loved goddess queen of ice, let's make it chilly this week!


Any interpretation of the prompt is fine so long as it's about ice or someone mentioning it. The choice is yours! Your drabbles must be either 100, 200, 300, 400, or 500 words exactly. Multiple drabbles are acceptable! Just don't forget to follow the other posting (and general rules) on the profile page.

A new prompt will appear next Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010 noon-ish (EST).


Don't forget - past prompts are always open!

And drop off your prompt ideas here!


AND REMEMBER - HAVE FUN! ^_^
