I love Race Ulfson's stories, my own favorite is "Home for the holidays", it's in But even better than that is "Grasshopper" by Twig, it's in Noiresensus, I recommed it to anybody who likes SxS even a little bit.

OOh, thank you! To be mentioned in the same breath as Twig is a huge compliment. I loved "Grasshopper" to bits, too.

I'm incredibly touched to be included on your list :) I think this is the first time I've seen one of my fics on a rec list, let alone several. (I'm still writing too, I swear! Or... will be after Yaoicon.) *eyes list again* Holy... I forgot I'd written half of those.

Next time I see Race online, I'll poke her over here to say hi too. I've been hugely fortunate to find a wonderful friend in her, and several of her stories are dedicated to me - there's another awesome one here.

Same for Sukunami and Seshat, if I bump into them :)

I'm years late but just hoping you still get comment notifications... :3
I was just wondering if you knew any fics where Squall is topping? XD I was fan of the pairing ever since I played the game yeaaars ago but since I didn't know fandom back then I only now got into it (replaying the game right now x3) and so far I've only seen Seifer/Squall and I think one single Squall/Seifer (but AU) story =O
That list looks great either way though, thanks for making it 8D
