Remember, Fanfic Noir contest entries are due March 20, so don't forget to send those in! We've already got one fic, so there will be some competition if you want to submit a fic. If you have any fic you've already written that fits the guidelines, send it in! Pretty much any type of "dark fic" will fit the bill, so if you have them, send them in. The contest rules are here and under the Current Contest link in the sidebar. Good luck!
Send any RPG fanfics you have to email@example.com. Remember, I always send an email to tell you if I received your fic. If you don't get that notification email, then resend the fic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suikoden IV T Aldo. Ted. A brief look into a brotherhood that almost was.

All right, just check that off the list... next, I'll eat the sandwich. Mmm... hey, this ain't bad. Maybe a little mustard or something. Mmm! All right, that's two!

I know, I know. Look, the point is that there's just not enough orange juice to go around. I mean, sure, you could try to swallow a couple more spark plugs, or you could hear me out and wait for the laundry to dry on the surface of the moon. And frankly I haven't been feeling well ever since I didn't see the giant hamster ball, you know I love those things. Now I'm afraid of radios and the kitchen, and doubly so if the two of them are Steve.
.hack// 10+ The burden of another life – beyond that which he had stayed in ‘The World’ to save – was more than the 14-year-old was ready to bear, and yet in his heart and mind, he knew he had done just that. (Chapters 23-24)

Everything beyond that is just details.
