Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Pool Party fanfic: Distant Worlds - Collision [Final Fantasy]

Story Title: Distant Worlds - Collision [Part 1 of the Distant Worlds trilogy]
Fandom: Final Fantasy
Pairing: Cloud Strife / Squall Leonhart
Links: PG version on FF.Net (27,831 words) || Explicit version on AO3 (28,491 words)
Summary: With Chaos defeated and the dimensions put to right again, Cloud didn’t ever expect to see Squall again. But then the Heartless came.

My neighbour has called the cops. Please send help / bail money.
[Other tags and warnings]Additional Tags: you have never seen the phrase ‘epic battles’ used in a better context | everybody got a Badassery Upgrade | even the bad guys | chasing the world-building away with a broom | those pesky bunnies just won’t quit | author doesn’t even know how to play a video game | seriously I tried but I can't even find the buttons | yay FF wikia for the win | STOP FLIRTING IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT YOU TWO
Warnings: Canon-appropriate violence, the occasional videogame-standard crack
Characters: Cloud Strife, Squall Leonhart, Rinoa Heartilly, Irvine Kinneas, Selphie Tilmitt, Zell Dincht, Quistis Trepe, Angelo, assorted mentions of ensemble cast, are monsters considered characters I should list but there's far too many of them
How this fulfils Pool Party requirements: First Final Fantasy fanwork. First Kingdom Hearts fanwork. First Dissidia fanwork. First video game fanwork. First crossover fanwork (involving 3 separate continuities and somewhere around a dozen fandoms all in total, never let it be said that I start small). First big bang entry. First explicit sex scene. First completed epic (because it is really short compared to my other epics). First time writing twelve action scenes in one "chapter" (had to split the fic into four chapters for easier reading). First time choreographing multiple simultaneous battles of this scale (but not the last, I'm actually starting small with this one).
How this doesn't fulfil Pool Party requirements: Not first time doing battle choreography. Not first time doing world-building. Seriously I think that's it.
Full list of fandoms for Collision: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. Final Fantasy VIII. Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Kingdom Hearts I. Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. Dissidia Duodecim: Final Fantasy. Dead Fantasy II. Parts 2-3 in the trilogy will include the rest of the Compilation of FFVII fandoms and the rest of the Kingdom Hearts continuity.
