Comes the Tide - darthneko - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
Another day, another gil. This is life outside the Garden. ~ Seifer and Zell, post game, meet up again in Fisherman's Horizon. [6631]

[A classic, and definitely one of my favorite post-game fics for any Final Fantasy game.]

Broken For the Scars I Forgave - Batsutousai - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
Seifer's time serving Ultimecia had led to him betraying the person who meant the whole world to him, and, when all is said and done, a lonely death is the only future he can envision for himself. Squall, however, has different plans. [12348]

The Dreamer and the Tragedy - isobelmarin - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
Later, she introduces him to Laguna, who becomes very emotional. Ellone can only stare, confused, as he tries to embrace Seifer and Seifer responds with shock.

"You're not Laguna Loire," he says, "No way."

Laguna ignores him. "I always knew," he declares, "That someday my little chicobo would fly the coop."

"Actually, Laguna," Kiros says, "Chocobos are flightless."

Laguna waves him off. "…And I knew that she would return when the time came for me to give her away, to a younger bird than myself."

"Oh my god," Seifer says, horrified. "You're a moron."

"Yes, Uncle Laguna, you're being dim," Ellone says. "You've got it wrong. Seifer is…" She looks across at Seifer, asking permission, but he just looks disgusted.

"I used to think you were so cool," he says, "Because you were in that movie and they said you really fought off an actual Ruby Dragon."

"He had help," Kiros says.

"Yeah, he probably needed help," Seifer says, and picks Laguna's arms off of his coat. [10,865]

Distortion - mystiri1 - Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
This Seifer is a normal teenager - at least, as most people define such things. He hasn't had to grow up too fast due to the demands of a mercenary education and war.

That, to Leon, is the best thing about the situation. (The only good thing, his cynical side whispers, and doesn't it burn to try and find something positive in all of this?) [2829]

your words are all over me - Renay - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
"But, Squall," Seifer says, a sigh in his voice. "You're so dreamy when you actually use full sentences. I feel, like, so special."

Seifer grew up watching Squall, goading him. He knows the way his jaw will tighten when he's annoyed, the thing he does with his lip when he's horny, which had been so fucking fun to learn, like ten birthdays all at once. Most people wouldn't frown for amusement, but Squall isn't most people. Squall is Squall, and he's scrambled eggs all day long. So when Squall frowns at him, Seifer smiles. [6078]

[Art] White Christmas - Artmetica - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
This piece has nothing to do with Christmas. Instead it's Squall and Seifer in their adorably ridiculous canon clothes standing out in the falling snow.

Um. I'm calling this an AU modern marriage piece, because I just don't see three-piece suits and those weird, pointy shirt collars having anything to do with canon.

Noblesse Oblige - Chapter 1 - Batsutousai - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
No one thought to warn Squall against touching his younger self, and he leaves a part of himself behind when he returns to Time Compression. [118,139]

Nida isn't sure if anyone else has noticed the torrid love affair between him and the commander -- actually, the commander himself may not have noticed yet. [392]

:: KH - Becoming Leon :: by *orin on deviantART
The darkness enveloped him, blessed and unfeeling, cutting off Seifer, and Selphie and the whole world. He welcomed it. And then Squall was no more and Leon opened his eyes in a place he could not quite recognise with naught to his name but a gunblade and a handful of foggy memories that he was not sure were even his own…
