I posted this on tumblr awhile back and forgot about putting it here~ I haven't been working on writing at all lately, but I really should. -_-; On the upside, I made a Rafe as my starter character for FF14, and there's hope that a Foxfire may follow sometime. At the very least I'm having fun RPing Rafe, to the extent that FF14 is able. (Rafe's a Wild Wood Elezen (read: elf), stupid tall, widows peak and all, resident of stiff-necked and divided Gridania. He starts out wishing to be a Wood Wailer as an archer, but finds he does have a regrettable affinity for setting things on fire, so he seeks training as a mage in Ul'Dah, even though the corruption in that city makes his skin crawl. Foxfire, when he joins the scene, is going to be an arcanist/summoner coming out of the cheerfully piratical and loose-moraled Limsa Lominsa. Look, these things happen.) And it does keep the characters fresh in my mind, even if I have to keep canon and RPG separate. . .
This is a wee chunk of canon backstory for Rafael from before the story begins, and is noteworthy for having been written on Twig and Lunar's couch when I visited Boston. :D Old cities are good for writing old cities.

(I love how I find errors whenever I reread things. Augh. Suffice to say I will deal with the wonky numbers at another time. Names are, as always, bullshitted on the spot. The fun thing is that Sarvan did not really exist before I started this, beyond the thought that Rafe's brother's in-laws are factors/distributors in the city, and that they're all pretty fiery lively people. :D)
