"Reconcilable Differences" - Mega Flare!

Title: Reconcilable Differences
Fandom: FFXII
Rating: R
Wordcount: 55,472 (complete in 5 chapters)
Pairings: Ashe/Al-Cid, Ashe/Balthier
Characters: Ashe, Al-Cid, Balthier, Basch, Ondore, most of the main cast, and more OCs than you can shake a stick at.
Spoilers: Yes, for the whole game, and some minor RW references as well. (I have not played RW, so please pardon any errors.)
Notes: My story for [community profile] megaflare_ff, 2010. This is the FFXII story I have long wanted to write, and I'm so glad this challenge gave me the push to sit down and write it. Major, major thanks to [personal profile] justira for serving as my idea sounding board and moral support, and to [personal profile] renay for beta reading, title help, and being my favorite co-mod.

Summary: After the war, Ashe is preparing to become queen, but there are many treacherous political waters to navigate first: proving her fitness to sit the throne, balancing Dalmascan independence with Empires on either side, settling the question of who will rule Nabradia. Into this situation steps a new ally: Al-Cid Margrace. Al-Cid is dealing with a political morass of his own; although many within Rozarria are relieved to have stayed out of active hostilities, others had hoped to weaken Archadia and expand into new territory for the first time in fifty years -- and chief among the latter faction is the crown prince. Together and separately, Ashe and Al-Cid set out to discover new truths and forge new alliances on their path to a peaceful Ivalice.

And then Balthier reappears, to throw all of Ashe's plans and emotions into disarray.
