because UF!au will always be relevant and I didn't manage to get enough of sol's H U R T in in the original l o l

daemon_angelus: (ffxv | noctis [ smile sometimes ])
because (re-)doing UF!au from Ky's POV is like thirteen of hercules' labours (i.e. nigh impossible) - HAVE A SNIPPET INSTEAD :D and yes, the title is based on the words craved in their belt buckles in canon AND I NOW STAUNCHLY REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANY OTHER INTERPRETATIONS OF THEM SO THERE (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

daemon_angelus: (fate extra | saber nero [ y/y ])
a lot of solky stuff wouldn't have come to fruition without [livejournal.com profile] celticheavens and her constant encouragement, support, feedback and just being there and replying to/sound-boarding all the random hype that comes out of my mouth regarding my OTP (no really - I talk about them a lot) -- so as usual, THIS PIECE IS DEDICATED TO [livejournal.com profile] celticheavens (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧ especially because 1) SHE LEGIT CAME UP WITH THAT HAPPY RESOLUTION that I literally couldn't see when I was crying my eyes out discussing the premise/setting of this AU with her; 2) I think she's been a rather big stylistic influence for this one (in terms of vocaulary and imagery used) so (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

I've always liked the word 'chiaroscuro' and what it means (from wikipedia: The underlying principle is that solidity of form is best achieved by the light falling against it) - I've also always wanted to write something worthy of having that word as its title and I'm glad I think I've finally achieved that (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧ also that underlined phrase is my summary right there lol

the fundamental idea/premise for this piece was sparked by a scene near the end of Ed Sheeran's Shape of You MV - the underground boxing/fight scene - and while it's treated a little comically in the original mv, my mind of course had to take a realistic (darker) turn, and coupled with looping 30 Seconds to Mars' Hurricane - this happened (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧ I've been doing a lot of modern AUs for solky recently

a-and no, this isn't my excuse to stick a tribal tattoo on shirtless!sol what are you talking about

to be honest, I got fatigued towards the end of this (this whole thing was written over something like 3 days almost nonstop besides trying to reasonably function at work lol) but I just had to get it out of my system before it consumed me (throwing homophobic slurs at my OTP is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to write) so... I may revisit this in future; a lot of the scenes and emotional tension that [livejournal.com profile] celticheavens and I managed to touch upon isn't included here (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

I also don't know if it's something to be proud of but my first real nsfw content (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

so, warnings: language, explicit content (some graphic violence, sexual mentions), mature themes

what's in a name. )
