All that Glitters (FF8 drabble, Seifer/Squall)

Written for tanoshi_ame's prompt "dark side" in conjunction with ffviii_100 prompt No.28: problem.

This is from Seifer's POV. Squall POV to follow.

Title: All that Glitters
Pairing: Seifer/Squall

Rating: G

Another sunny Balamb morning. Another movie about the Second Sorceress War. Another blushing cadet asking him to sign a stupid poster.

Commander Almasy is definitely not in a good mood.

To be fair, the movie didn't make him into a caricature of evil, and even the "roguishly handsome" newcomer playing him wasn't half bad. Yet there is something fundamentally disquieting about the war being made into a movie. The things he had seen, the things he had done—certainly he never ran away from them, but he would have preferred to leave them on the dark side, where they belong.

Although it could be very hilarious if one interpreted the things Seifer might have done in a different light... *coughtorturescenecough*... XD
*innocent look*

That's fangirl talk. Those don't get made into movies (except the ones that play over and over in our minds)!

Personally I am always hesitant to write about Seifer during his Ultimecia period, as I don't want to whitewash him but at the same time don't want to go too hard on him. It's a delicate balance that I have yet to find.
