Authors' Notes: Today was my last day at the Job From Hell, and this is the last chapter of our tale. Hallelujah. By the way, for those interested, and per request from my beta, there will be a brief epilogue posted tomorrow. ♥

In this chapter, we get both points of view, Larsa makes a gamble, Balthier makes a decision, and..... well, I did promise a happy ending, didn't I?

Title: The Long Shot (4/6)
Author: chaineddove
Rating: NC-17 due to one scene in a later chapter, PG-13 otherwise
Genre: Romance
Pairing: Balthier/Ashe
Wordcount: 2,587
Authors' Notes: In this chapter, Larsa throws a party and attempts to meddle, Ashe does not explain herself, Balthier loses his temper, and everything pretty much goes as one would expect from there. Also, Al-Cid, Penelo, and Basch have cameos, and Fran steps on Vaan's foot, again.

Title: The Long Shot (3/6)
Author: chaineddove
Rating: NC-17 due to one scene in a later chapter, PG-13 otherwise
Genre: Romance
Pairing: Balthier/Ashe
Wordcount: 2,107
Authors' Notes: So, here's how this bit of madness came about: umarekawareru challenged me to write a Balthier/Ashe fic which did not have a tragic ending. Needless to say, turning down a challenge from my apprentice would have presented a huge loss of face, so I had to write it. One chapter will be posted per day over the course of the next week (with, potentially, an epilogue on day 7 if I feel inspired) - which, amusingly enough, corresponds with my last week at the Job From Hell (so it's a double celebration in my mind).

In this chapter, Ashe gets advice from everyone, including Basch, and decides that frankly, she doesn't like any of it. Rather than doing as she's told, she comes up with a Plan B.

In this chapter, we move on to Balthier's point of view, and get a bit of insight about Ashe and Balthier's arrangement up until now. Fran and Vaan make appearances, and Larsa and Penelo get mentioned (for anyone who is wondering, yes, this does take place in the same universe as A Change of Perspective). Fran is, as always, ruthless and fabulous. Vaan, as always, puts both feet in his mouth (possibly to keep Fran from stepping on them, uh).
