developments on this and all other sections of my site.
Doujinshi are comics published by fans in Japan. Here are some samples and
commentaries on some Final Fantasy 9 doujinshi.
Beside Myself - A short story written to explain
the Vivi issue at the end, and to give the Black Mages hope for the future.
No Need to be Sad - Nobody lives forever...
- How have Vivi's "children" fared since Kuja's defeat?
Night on the Phantom Train by
Katzedecimal. This is an 8-Bit
Theater fanfic that fits in somewhere between episodes 383 and 395, between
Black Mage's death and, er, undeath. As a special bonus, here are some
author's notes which can make the events and settings
a little clearer.
||An adult first generation Vivi-series Black Mage. Not an exact
copy... and nobody ever accused Black Mages of being fashion plates.
||Newlyweds Vivi and Quina. Don't they look so happy?
||A B&W sketchook doodle of Vivi riding a Chocobo. Vivi looks a bit
older in this picture...
||A general final fantasy fan character. She's a mage, but what kind I'm
not quite sure of. Black, white, red? Er...
(Background taken from Hexen graphics.)
Taking a Wark
|Vivi and Mikoto, some years later. Mikoto seems to have mellowed out a tad, and Vivi's having more luck finding
clothes that fit.
(Background patched together from Hexen graphics. God, I'm lazy.)
Here is, as far as I know, the first released Vivi KiSS doll. KiSS (short
for kisekae) dolls are the computer version of paper dolls,
meaning you can dress them up in different costumes and give them accessories.
There's also music and animation and other oddness, because I always have
to stick that kind of stuff in. You can download the dolls from
my main KiSS page, or click on
the thumbnail at right to see a preview of the whole doll.
Need more info on what a KiSS doll is and how to play it? That, too, is on
my main KiSS page!
||People are Strange
A music video about Vivi and the other Black Mages in Final Fantasy
IX to the tune of "People are Strange" by The Doors.
This is a zipped RM file, playable with RealMedia 8 or above.
(A better copy of this video is available on CD-ROM
from Slack & Hash's Music
||A WAV of the FF9 moogle Kupo noise. Makes a good Windows "Exclamation"
||Have you looked closely at what she served for dinner?
||Either there's a glitch in the FF9 programming or Zidane can warp space.
