- Final Fantasy 8 - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sat on the fence about this one for awhile, but slowly... I found myself warming up to the fanart of Zell, because I have a weakness for the cute sketchy stuff. The artist makes good use of her style and it's not going to be for everyone, but I really like the adorable ness of the chibi-like art and the almost messy lines that make everything feel light and airy. But. Okay. Really. I have to admit that I was won over by Seifer dressed like a pirate. Complete with eyepatch and everything. ♥ There's just no way that's not great. Not that kitty!Zell wasn't helping right along, because I do have such a tremendous fondness for the way this artist focuses on the character. I mean... the whole site was just fun and put a big smile on my face. I don't ask for more than that. :DDDD ....well, okay. Cute Zell in Seifer's jacket. (I think?) That totally made my day, too. ♥ (Mostly gen, you have to hunt a little for the Seifer/Zell.)

- Final Fantasy 8 - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Perhaps I was inclined to be kind to this site because it has a lot of Seifer/Zell fanart and I've been looking all over for that. But then I go back through the gallery while I'm writing this rec and remember, no, it totally deserves a rec for younger!Zell with these impossibly pretty blue eyes. The artist actually does so some really great things with these soft colors or adorable poses... so stuff like Seifer throwing sparks at Zell's sparkler with an annoyed expression while Zell grins like a maniac is just the most adorable, fun thing ever. Still not going to be for everyone, but I enjoyed it and there were enough illustrations on the site that were cute or pretty that it totally made the site worth my time. I had a lot of fun. ♥ (Some Seifer/Zell, some gen.)

- Final Fantasy 8 - Lunatic High [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - *___* Okay. Okay. We totally have my new favorite FFVIII fanart site here, because the Seifer/Zell art is just gorgeous. Both characters are utterly gorgeous, but it's more than that. It's the way they interact, the way it's the perfect dynamic of what I look for in Seifer/Zell, that Seifer's kind of a distant jerk, that Zell's a hotheaded slightly spastic cutie and somehow their relationship works for the better. I mean. Seifer and Zell as kids with Zell crying on Seifer who has his arm around him? Totally pwnz. Or the semi-graphic ones of kisses or post-coital relaxation? Beautiful. Seifer and Zell lying in the grass or just any time Seifer is pulling Zell close? Swoon. The site was perfect, absolutely everything I could have asked for and I'm only sorry that I ran out of images to go through. And did I mention they were both gorgeous, gorgeous characters? Yeah. *happy sigh* (Seifer/Zell, occasionally some heavy PG-13 content.)

- Final Fantasy 8 - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So, Noel pointed me to this site tonight and mentioned the gift gallery, which is something I tend to have a love/hate relationship with, because sometimes you hit the jackpot and a lot of times you... well, don't. Not everything here was fantastic, but there were some utterly beautiful illustrations tucked away in the gift gallery, ones that use these beautiful soft gold colors and totally make me remember why I love blonde x blonde pairings sometimes. Just... there's this one of Seifer kissing Zell and the image is all these pretty whites and golds and rose colors and I swoon. It's stuff like that that really makes the gallery worth going through. Well. Plus, it feeds my love for the pairing, so that helps, too. <3 (Seifer/Zell.)
