I give up; I've been trying to do them in order but "Games" is defeating me. Time to move on for now!

Title: Night Lights
Setting: FFX, ever-handy airship
Theme/Number: Pyreflies, #32
Pairing: Auron/Lulu
Rating: PG
Summary: Lulu fretting again.

Blue, green, shimmering gold flashes often roused Lulu from sleep and set her heart pounding. She could never be sure whether they were remnants of nightmare or real, those baleful death-gleams dancing above the bunk like wisps of wind made visible. The reassuring darkness of her cabin put such fears to shame. The mage gripped the pillow more tightly to avoid digging into Auron's shoulder, and closed her eyes resolutely.

Pyreflies. Once she had found them beautiful, a stubborn reminder of life that Sin could change but not vanquish. Now they were sands slipping through the hourglass of her heart.

This is very pretty and quite poetic. I like the sense that Lulu has nightmares about pyreflies and the way in which she had appreciated their beauty in the past. Of course the final line sums everything up. I enjoy the way that time running out is a constant theme in your stories. It does seem like the one inescapable truth of this relationship, sadly enough.

I fear that I've beat that theme into the ground though. I must ponder some other angles!

Ooh, very nice. I especially like the way that you don't spell out the issue, yet it's still clear :)

As for your problem with "Games" - how about the angle of dating games? I get that they didn't really date, but maybe a kind of flirty thing between them before they actually hook up?

Just an idea :)
