etherati: (FF7 - reno smile)
Title: Inevitability
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno/random informant.
Date Written: 2010.
Summary: Any process, once set in motion, will inevitably draw to its close. Hostages, interrogation, and phallic symbolism.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for no actual sex, but hooboy are the implications kind of filthy. Also: violence, and what sexual interpretation is there is pretty noncon.
Notes: For Kink Bingo amnesty(prompt: 'guns').

Fingers split the blind-slats, would let the light in if there were any light out there at all. )
etherati: (FF7 - reno shock)
Title: Splinter Inside Me
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno/Tseng, Elena, others.
Date Written: 2008-2009. Started ages ago, FINALLY finished up. There was such a tiny bit left and I've been writing LIKE FIRE lately, so.
Summary: Some people lodge more deeply under the skin than we realize or would like.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 to R for language. Implied slash.
Notes: Based loosely on another work, but all author's notes are at the end, to avoid spoiling the impact.

He feels unbalanced and top-heavy, and he realizes foggily that he went to sleep on the receding edge of very, very drunk. He can’t quite remember why. )

etherati: (FF7 - reno confessions)
Title: Confessions of a Redheaded Stepchild
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno, Tseng, various OCs, various pairings.
Date Written: 2000-2007
Summary: A collection of short, miscellaneous Reno-POV bits I've written over the years.
Rating/Warnings: R. Language, slash.

I just know that the squidgey warm feeling I get inside when I've done something stupid and human is uncomfortable, like wet socks or a chestcold. )

etherati: (FF7 - reno desaturated)
Title: Crossed the Rooftops
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno/Tseng one-sided, Elena/Tseng one-sided, Reno/Elena friendship.
Date Written: 2006
Summary: After the incident at the Temple, Reno and Elena learn, together and alone, what it is to fall and keep falling.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13. Slash, character death(s).
Notes: Realized that I’d never written about Elena at all. Realized I’d never written Reno’s reaction to the temple. Realized that this needed to be written.

I’m the crazy one, the one who takes stupid risks and never looks back. Wasn’t I supposed to go first? )

etherati: (FF7 - reno smile)
Title: With a Smile
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno, Tseng, Reno/Tseng if you squint.
Date Written: 2002
Summary: Reno is finally given a job he's not entirely comfortable pulling off- a hit on a competitor's child.
Rating/Warnings: R for language and violent themes. Also: Infanticide. This one is dark.
Notes: I felt that Reno had some anger issues to work through. Very dark and it should be disturbing, but really turned out more depressing than anything else. Shades of grey can be fun to work with, but I was about run out of white paint when I wrote this one.

And someday, my friend, if there is a Hell, we'll be sharing a room there. )

etherati: (FF7 - reno grey)
Title: Never Fades to Grey
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno/OC, Tseng
Date Written: 2002
Summary: Reno's girlfriend offs herself. Reno seeks solace.
Rating/Warnings: R; language, adult themes, suicide.
Notes: This was a nasty bit of history I'd given Reno that I didn't particularly want to roleplay, but that I felt deserved to be written down. And I'd been in a masochistic mood when I decided to write it. Placed early on during his stint in the Turks... he'd be about nineteen, and it's six years or so before the game. Eventually, we all learn that we can't treat everything in life so casually, can't go on believing unshakably in our own ability to be in control of a given situation... and start getting an idea of what's worth it, and what isn't.

The next morning at work, I get the customary stares for the blood staining my duty blues. Is it mine, I'm asked. )

etherati: (FF7 - tseng young)
Title: Two Ends of Time
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Tseng, kid!Reno
Date Written: 2001
Summary: Tseng meets Reno. Old, rejected origin story.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, violent themes.
Notes: This is the absolute earliest of my FF7 fics, done back before I was playing Reno, before I'd devised a more sensible past for him and a more believeable story for how he got into the Turks. It was a random thought as far as just how young they might pick these folks, and while it was certainly interesting to write, it's not very realistically feasible. I've since revised for the version I RP. Mightily. It's also not quite as, er, refined an image of Tseng as most people portray, but I once again plead ignorance and age, and have kept this intact for historical reasons. I still like it, even if it is dated.

I asked him what his name was. He asked if it mattered. I said that it did not. )

etherati: (FF7 - reno explosion)
Title: Zebraflesh
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno
Date Written: 2001
Summary: Reno and his broken little mind after the plate drop.
Rating/Warnings: R, language.
Notes: An exercise in catharsis. Most of Reno's angst comes from his own head.

You little shit, you didn't see yourself crossing the line, did you? Didn't even see it drawn there in the dust. )
