[fanfic] Cake Disaster

I’ve got everything I need to make this cake, including directions. I did everything properly and my stupid cake is still burnt! The ruined cake pan and its contents are chilling out in the sink, the smoke is still clearing from the kitchen when the door opens.

“What the hell happened in here?!”

I turned around to see Zell standing there and I smile sheepishly. “Uh… well… y’see, I was trying to bake a cake and uh…”

“A cake? Weren’t you banned from the kitchen Selphie?”


He sighed. “Didja even think to change the temperature on the oven, Selph?”

[fanfic] All to Myself

Fandom: Final Fantasy VIII
Prompt: Infatuation
Character: Irvine, talking about Selphie.

I can’t get enough of her. She’s the only one for me. I’d give anything to be with her for the rest of our days.

The sun catching in her hair and that sunny smile of hers. That zest for life that pours out into everything she touches. Nothing holds her back or keeps her down for long. If I could bottle that light, I would without a doubt.

But I won’t. I can’t. I’d rather keep it all to myself. I’d rather keep her all to myself. I know her better than anyone.

If only she’d let me in.
