This is not really responsive to the current prompt, although it might - at a stretch - be read that way. The story is a part of the Pentateuch series but can stand alone for those who have not read the other chapters. It takes place immediately after the shooting near the Travel Agency and is the result of a sudden insight which owlmoose kindly shared with me. It is 2,616 words long.

Please understand, this is AU like most of my stuff; I am not much of a canonical writer.

Prompt #1: Reunion

Okay, we'll try this prompts thing and see how it goes. For now, I'm thinking I'll put up a new prompt every two weeks, on Sunday. That gives everyone a bit of time to chew over ideas, but we'll still get a regular influx of new things to work on. (Of course, you aren't limited to posting only stories for the current prompt, and prompts will always remain open indefinitely -- if you come up with a fabulous idea a month later, we'd still love to see it!)

The prompt for this two-week period is: Reunion

For me, this leads to the question of how Paine and Nooj might have come back together after the final battle, but there are definitely other directions you could take this one. Let's see what we can come up with.

If you have suggestions for future prompts, or other activities you would like to see in this community, please feel free to email me or leave a comment!! Thanks. And happy writing!

A bit of fic to get things started

Title: Aye, Captain
Fandom: FFX-2
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 1170
Pairings: Paine/Nooj
Notes: Set during the time of the Crimson Squad, after the events of Crimson Sphere 2. An early version of this was written back in 2005 as a "deleted scene" from Chapter 13 of "One More Confessional" (197S9.9.19 in the four-part story). But it's definitely also intended to stand alone. I went back and cleaned it up recently, and this is the first time it's ever been posted publicly on LJ. Enjoy!

(fic) (ffx-2) weaknesses

All my Paine/Nooj work is short and also not new, but I will soldier on by sharing it piece by painstaking piece. Perhaps I will be inspired to write something fresh in the meantime (but please no one hold their breath, OMG, blood on my hands!).

Weaknesses (317 words)

Paine knows all Nooj's weaknesses.

Welcome to the Community!

Now presenting the first LJ community (ever, as far as I know) dedicated to the Paine/Nooj pairing in Final Fantasy X-2. There are plenty of fans out there, and it's long past time we had a gathering place to talk about the characters and share our P/N fanworks (fanfic, fanart, icons, vids...) and meta. So here it is.

Anyone who is a fan of the characters and/or the pairing is welcome to join!

Looking for a reason to board the 'ship? Check out the manifesto!

I'm owlmoose, your mod. If anyone has suggestions for what they'd like to see in this community, just let me know. Weekly or monthly prompts? Discussions? Recc'ing parties? I'm totally open to any and all ideas. Thanks!!
