Summary: WNBA players romping through Final Fantasy XII's fantastic world of Ivalice. Politics, sexual tension, big bad monsters, and hot women wielding swords and firing guns.
Author's Notes: I've had this idea around for approximately a year and a half, but never really got around to writing much of it until I signed up for tlb. During the last six months or so, I reached a final word count of just around 65k. I've never written anything this long, and it never would have happened if not for tlb. So as much as I griped and moaned about it along the way, I really just want to thank the mods who put this challenge together. It's been an experience writing this.
To give credit where credit is due:
1) a few lines in the fic are stolen from the game. I'm sure anybody who has played it will recognize them.
2) the idea of Balthier being a legendary sky pirate comes from wreathsandbells's FFXII fiction
Also, a day late for the deadline. Sincerely sorry to the mods, who're trying to organize this whole event.
