Auron: Looking away
Title: Fire
Rating: G
Word Count: 237
Characters: Jecht, Braska, Auron
Notes: Written for pyre_flies. I've completely forgotton how to characterise FFX. ;_;


"You think I could get Braska to teach me how to do that?" Jecht asked, dropping to sprawl between Auron and the fire. It was probably an indication of how little sense Jecht made under ordinary circumstances that Auron only had to look at him before Jecht tried to explain, although his definition of "explain" appeared to involve twiddling his fingers in the direction of the fire. The one Braska had lit only a few minutes ago before he'd sat down against a rock and, as far as Auron could tell, fallen asleep.

Lit using magic.

Oh, no.

"Looks useful." Jecht's grin broadened, and Auron was reminded of the look on Jecht's face when they'd gone to the armourers to find him a sword - it was the sort of smile that had, when Auron was in charge of training other monks, been a sure sign that they shouldn't be trusted with weapons just yet. "Could probably do some real damage with it."

Auron opened his mouth, intending to remind Jecht that he was a danger to all three of them with only a sword, let alone with black magic - and made the mistake of looking at Braska. Braska was smiling faintly from beneath his hat, a smile that broadened a little as he met Auron's eyes.

"Ask him in the morning," Auron said eventually. "You might be sober enough that you won't catch fire yourself."

Heh! Travelling with Jecht must've felt like cat herding to Auron at times. And yet... remember that part at the Macalania lake when they find the first Jecht sphere? The emotion in Auron's voice!

Aw, I love that scene! Makes me feel for Auron and Jecht and Tidus all at the same time. Pretty much the entire scene was designed to hit me in the heart. ;_;

(... This has got me wondering what Auron's reaction to the other spheres were now. UM.)

My OT3. Seriously.

You've nailed them. The first paragraph was a little tough to read, though. May just be the amount of homework I've chewed through today, though.

Mine too! :D

Thank you, I'm glad you thought so - it's been that long since I've written them that I'm not sure if I can characterise them anymore. ^^; And you've got a point about the first paragraph, I'll give it another look. Thank you!

I've completely run out of witty or cute or even interesting ways to say that I love your stuff. They're pretty much my OT3, and this is so dead-on. I love Auron's voice especially, but everybody is so very much in character that it sounds like something out of the game.

GODDAMNIT. I SET IT TO WATCH THIS COM SO I'D KNOW WHEN YOU UPDATED BUT IT DOESN'T EMAIL ME. I HAD TO GET THIS OFF OF FF_PRESS. WHAT THE FUCK, LJ? I ALMOST GIVE UP. FUCK.

Aw, thank you Dior! *hugs!* I'm glad you thought it worked, and I'm happy you liked it! (I've run out of ways to tell you I appreciate your comments, so I think we're even. *hugs*)

LJ IS BEING A BIT CRAP WITH THE EMAILS. AS IN, THEY DON'T HAVE THE LINKS TO POSTS IN ANYMORE. MAYBE THAT'S WHY IT'S NOT WORKING. :\

Ah, that's a nice little tidbit and I think it sounds true to them. Yay JAB!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it, and that you thought it sounded true to them! *slumps in puddle of relief :D
