    Thinking about the Elfpile sharing their favourite flavours of gelato on the beach at Costa Del Sol ❤️

    Aymeric likes green tea flavor. He is not licking his spoon suggestively, no. That would be unseemly in public.

    Gisele definitely is. (Licking Aymeric’s spoon suggestively)

    Stephanivien would devour his (strawberry) and get brain freeze

    Meanwhile Ysayle’s favorite flavor is whatever Estinien’s eating because it tastes best when stolen

    Estinien always gets double scoops because of that btw.

    Haurche would “accidentally” let his drip on himself (strategically). It’s vanilla, which doesn’t help (or does it?).

    I wanted to check with you - are you alright with people reblogging your writing snippets? Or would you rather wait for the finished stories?

    ngl I used to not like it bc my wip stuff is so Rough but the sad truth is fic gets reblogged even less than it used to nowadays. I feel like beggars really can’t be choosers at this point. as long as the finished story gets reblogged too knock yourself out

    i definitely associate you with haurchefant and ysayle, but you're also like the only person i've seen talking about yotsuyu (aside from lizzy) so even though i have very little to go off at this point in the msq, every time she's on screen while i'm going through stormblood i'm thinking about your posts about her

    my poor little meow meow

    I need to write way more things with her. and do more crimes

    especially with moogle hats

    Haurchefant is a given, but I actually associate you quite strongly with Ysayle as well, every time I see her I think about your blog and Gisele's life with her. It makes me smile!

    Regarding that post about which character I associate you with - it's definitely Haurchefant. When I started playing FFXIV and got to Camp Dragonhead my first reaction was "Oh, that's Gisele's husband." And then I fell in love with him as well :D

    What if.....Cid.....kissed Gisele......and they were both queer....😳

    I have Many Feelings about Cid/Gisele that I like never talk about but they actually did Kiss while they were sheltering at the Church of Saint Adama…and more…👀

    Gisele was traumatized and grieving and coping with serious survivor’s guilt in the wake of the Garlean attack on the Sands, and “Marques” was exceedingly kind and empathetic and also couldn’t remember anything about his past, just like her. His befriending her and them growing intimate was really not unlike what happened much later on with Haurchefant after the Bloody Banquet, except obviously without the history of UST and whatnot. But Gisele finding comfort in physical pleasure (something she uses to cope a lot) and beauty in a dark place in her life was very much the same.

    I’ve always said that it’s difficult for me to quantify or define their relationship because “FWB” is really inadequate to describe their bond, and I’ve called it a romantic friendship before, but if I’m honest the hemming and hawing over this just feels like more beating myself up for having ~too many~ ships and so I downplay it. I mean they love each other, period. And they will always cherish each other for what they meant to one another at a low point, giving each other comfort and hope

    how does Gisele store her Soul Crystals? I'm assuming she made some sort of jewelry for them, but how does she make sure they're accessible at a moment's notice?

    Also, the game has never actually explained what soul crystals are/how they work, right?

    She made them into a charm bracelet that she wears at all times. What we know as gear sets by the game mechanics I explain ICly as Gisele having attuned the respective gear for her Jobs to each of them. When she needs to use one, she visualizes the sigil in her mind and focuses with intent, drawing it out with her aether and the use of a word (Gisele always does her spellcasting in Orlesian unless a specific language is required for a spell, so from a meta standpoint she just uses the French name for the Job). In the beginning it’s somewhat difficult, and she has to physically touch the crystal, but she becomes so practiced over time that it happens instantly without need of that, explains how she switches Jobs in combat so effortlessly. In actuality it’s a very focused adaptation of Azem’s summoning magic. She’s just summoning equipment instead of people. (She keeps the bracelet glamoured invisible so as to not make it a tempting target for her opponents)

    in general I conceptualize soul crystals as being a lot like dresspheres in X-2 because honestly the lore we have on them pretty much supports that, and yes that does mean henshin sequences because what the fuck is a magical girl without a henshin sequence

    27. What makes you excited about their relationship? for gisele/y'shtola please!!

    the fact that they have so much in common in so many ways—scholarly, brilliant, no-nonsense sorceresses—but then in others they couldn’t be more different, and it’s still in highly complementary ways. like Gisele wearing her heart on her sleeve vs. Y’shtola playing her cards so close to her chest, Gisele having her head in the clouds so often vs. Y’shtola being incredibly grounded, etc.

    the will they/won’t they slow burn that went on for years and is so incredibly unique as far as Gisele ships. the coy glances and the “accidental” brushing and lingering touches. the UST!!!!!!!

    Y’shtola’s determination to find a way to travel between the shards has so much more meaning to me when she’s in love with Gisele, who was born on the Seventh and for so long has been carrying the weight of guilt and grief at all she left behind. Shtola’s a woman of action imo, it’s how she shows affection, so…yeah.

    they’re just wonderful and I need to write way more with them

    ooh, for the romance asks could you do 11 for Gisele/Thancred/Minfilia please?

    I don’t want to get too much into it because this is actually coming up in my latest wip, but they have a running joke from the post-Praetorium holiday they took in Costa

    “I’m going for a swim” = “I’m unbelievably horny”, and probably at a wildly inappropriate/inconvenient time

    and “okay, have a care for the jellyfish” is always the response

    and yes it was Thancred who was the butt of the original joke. Minfilia was the one who said it out of the blue one day and Gisele very quickly used the response, which made Thancred do a spit take when he realized what incident they were referencing. they all started laughing and it’s been a running joke ever since, even years later with still with just Thancred and Gisele

    1. What drew your character to their LI and vice versa?

    For any pairings you feel you don't write enough about!

    I don’t write nearly enough about Gisele/Urianger so here we go

    Not to sound like a hipster but Gisele was attracted to Urianger from the very start of their acquaintance, even before his ShB ~glowup~. She’s a very bookish sort to begin with, which is not something he at all suspected of an adventurer, and it was the thing they bonded over most in the beginning. It helps of course that Gisele is very melodramatic and a hopeless romantic and so she was absolutely in love with Urianger’s poetic way of speaking. That it was ~archaic~ didn’t bother her in the slightest; if anything it made her feel better, because people were constantly commenting on her strong accent making her sound “old fashioned”*. And the feeling was very much mutual, which was a strong contributing factor for why they began having such ridiculously long conversations. She never had any problem understanding him either; sometimes, after a while, she would begin to unwittingly mimic him, even.

    Urianger was so flustered by her, constantly, and her teasing him so much didn’t help in the slightest. But he was always intensely curious about her, from the very moment they met he found her incredibly alluring. It wasn’t just her looks, though that was very much an important part of it. It’s Gisele’s mind that Urianger was drawn to, as much as her physical body, how clever she was, the depth of conversation he could have with her about anything from tawdry bodice ripping literature to dense texts of arcane theory and esoteric philosophy.

    And dear gods did he admire her skill with the arcane, how she made the most difficult things look so easy because of her strong intuitive sense for not just the mechanics of spellcasting but the underlying principles of aether manipulation. Urianger considers himself an omnidisciplinary mage, same as she does, and so he understands very well just how difficult it is to master these disparate skill sets. He watched in fascination and total admiration as Gisele grasp concepts that it took his peers in the Studium with all their expensive tutors ages to understand, if ever. This combined with how educated she sounded was one of the reasons that Urianger was utterly fascinated by Gisele’s unknown origins and why he was absolutely convinced for the longest time that she was a product of the Sharlayan colony. There was no way she’d gone without formal education, in his mind. (Of course, it all fell into place for him later one, when they discovered the truth.)

    But they really did talk about all of these things, and more--they could and did talk for hours, alone in the library after everyone else had gone to bed, burning the midnight oil so to speak. Sometimes even until sunrise. She was just as drawn to Urianger’s mind as the reverse, but for Gisele it was a little different; always, there was this underlying current of nostalgia in doing this, a strange feeling of comfort and safety that gave her deja vu a lot. It made sense later on, after she got her memories back, because she realized those talks reminded her of the best times she had in the Circle, talking shop and being a nerd with her friends and lovers. It wasn’t all shop talk with Uri of course! She flirted outrageously and shamelessly with him, as is her wont. Gisele was always teasing him about just what was under his robes and the like. Asking if he had any ~spicy~ literature recommendations (and he did!). Things like that. Urianger was constantly flustered by her in the beginning, I have to be clear. And Gisele reveled in it.

    *[Gisele’s accent is quite odd. Most of the time she speaks with a fairly thick fantasy Parisian-with-a-dash-of-Senegalese accent; it’s because her first language is Orlesian and her mother’s accent speaking the King’s Tongue was very strong, though with Dalish cadence and I pegged her clan as sounding Senegalese rather than Welsh. But because she was raised in the Circle around Fereldans, she has a bit of upper class British cadence at times to reflect that, as well as because she began code switching very early on because of being teased so badly there for being Orlesian. But being around Leliana so much made it come roaring back with a vengeance. To most Eorzeans she sounds like an old Elezen grandma, endearingly old-fashioned. To Coerthans she sounds Ishgardian. To Ishgardians she sounds like a noble of the Pillars, which broke their brains at first given that she’s not from there, especially since Ishgardien is very close to the Val Royeaux dialect she grew up speaking, though some of the Dalish slang is beyond them.].

    19 for Gisele and Ysayle

    19. Describe how they communicate 

    As forthright as they are with each other, there’s a lot of silent, unspoken understanding between them. Some of that’s due to their Echo bond, which is something I’ve admittedly pulled out of my ass, but they each have such a deep understanding of how the other thinks and feels that they rarely need words. Sometimes they’ll even finish each other’s thoughts or sentences.

    Which is really kind of wild to think about, because one of the challenges Ysayle had to overcome in the beginning was her tendency to to keep her cards close to her chest. Ysayle had built up a wall around herself to rival Snowcloak in a lot of ways, almost inevitably as a function of the role she took up and the persona she’d carefully crafted for herself. “Lady Iceheart” was mysterious and beyond mortal trivialities. And for all of her charismatic leadership qualities, Ysayle had grown accustomed to dealing with subordinates who didn’t view her as an equal or even a person so much as Godtouched Fearless Leader. Her tools for communication in those days were stirring oratory or threats, all designed to manipulate people for whom she had a certain latent kind of contempt, to her own ends.

    So, stripped of all that, and faced with a woman in Gisele who was the entire opposite—someone who wore her heart on her sleeve, always, who was honest and forthcoming as could be (maybe telling selective truths at her worst), and a projective empath at that, who’s got an almost Kusheline ability to read hearts…you can see where there could be the potential for misunderstandings. And there were, from time to time. But Ysayle found Gisele’s “what you see is what you get” kind of style a breath of fresh air. As prissy and occasionally pretentious as she can come across to people who don’t know her very well, Gisele is a very genuine person and holds nothing back with the people she loves. You never have to question where you stand with her. And she’s the first to say that she cannot love the way she does and be any other way. Ysayle appreciates that, deeply. It’s one of the reasons she feels so safe with Gisele, and just why she was able to tear down those walls so quickly.

    They’re both very headstrong though so when they disagree, it’s very Intense—never to the point of disrespect or going for the jugular so to speak, but they’re very stubborn. Gisele is more prone to backing down just because she hates arguing, but it rarely gets to that point; generally someone has mediated by then to help them see reason or a compromise (usually Haurchefant, or Y’shtola).
