These are legit called “Avalanche Lilies,” and that’s just too perfect.

I did so much organizing of the notes for this chapter and the next two.  They were blended together in OneNote, and I had to try to separate things out.  I actually used the “wrong” picture last week, since that’s not relevant until the next chapter, which concerns obtaining a flower basket.  The current one is about the garden mentioned in Chapter 15, and then Chapter 18 has a little bit of action.  It’s not quite THAT scene yet (sorry Lightning Ellen), but I promise it’s coming 😀

Curved wicker basketNot much to say besides Chapters 14 and 15 have been posted, but apparently I double posted Chapter 14 on Archive of Our Own so I’ll have to remedy that.  Speaking of AO3, I donated $10, which gives me a vote on stuff or something.  I should probably look into that lol.  The site has been nominated for a Hugo Nebula Award, which is…pretty fucking awesome.  They’re a much smaller site than Fanfiction.net, but I’m only posting this story there due to FF.net’s draconian censorship rules, and tbh I like the AO3 community a little more.  It seems cozier and more closely knit.

Well that picture took me a while to decide on.   It’s not that I don’t have a lot of pictures to choose from (my FFVII Pinterest board alone has over 3k pins…most of them Sephiroth…don’t judge me); it’s more the issue of finding the right one for the right situation and not duplicating.  I keep a folder of all the ones I’ve used for this post so I don’t do that, and not only the first but the alternative I wanted have already been used.  Oh well.
