Here we have a short, nicely drawn all-cast gag doujinshi. When Vivi mopes that he looks like the manufactured black mages, Steiner offers a novel solution: new hats. (Vivi as Irvine from FF8?) Zidane's potion does not turn the oglop Cid into a frog, but into... well, a human that seems to be having Kuja's hormone problem. When Zidane comes to Kuja in the desert palace, Kuja greets him... in a bathtub. Thank heavens for conveniently figleafy flowers.

Not all of the gags are intelligible to those not fluent in Japanese, but even then the context is apparent. Freya looks disappointed while talking to Fratley; Zidane threatens Fratley with a "100T" hammer, and suddenly Fratley slaps his forehead and starts talking. It's easy to figure that Zidane is offering to jog Fratley's memory of his lost love.
