Looking for recs!  
During the last year, akatonbo moved in with me, and finally got around to making progress in Suikoden II, and then beating it. And you know how these things go - now we've got another fan.

Thing is, she's all about the Matilda Knights, particularly Miklotov. Me, I'm all about the booze-swilling mercs in this series, and didn't have that much interest in the knights - so I didn't know where to find fanstuff for them back in the day, let alone now that they're old news. And in the meantime, she's convinced me that we should cosplay them, and I've been researching and have got the costumes half finished already, and now I'm getting sucked into liking them a lot too - and I still don't know where the fanstuff is. Fanfiction.net was, as expected, pretty useless, and searching Google gave me a lot of false leads before I gave up.

I know Camus and Miklotov were fairly popular as a pairing, at the very least, so there has got to be some fic out there, and hopefully some of it by people who like them as characters rather than as generic yaoi stereotypes. Anyone know where to find some that's decent? Gen, yaoi, or somewhere in between all are great, just as long as the two of them are acting like knights and not teenage girls. ;)
Current Mood: curious

Aw, crap. We may have to just write some ourselves after all. (And from my mannerisms in these posts, you can just tell that I'd make a WONDERFUL charming knightly Camus, eh? XD This is why I have that Viktor icon...)

I certainly did not expect to see a Viktor icon while I was reading my friends page today. It made me smile. :D

Sadly many of the sites I used to frequent for my Suikoden needs are no longer around. I went through my old fanart folder (which I've realized needs organized quite badly) and I only found three pieces of Camus and Miklotov together, despite being a big fan of the two of them, both separately and as a pairing. Those images don't have artist information on them, so I can't even go looking to see if the site has moved or really is long gone as it seems.

Good luck finding anything! I'll be looking forward to pictures of your cosplay in the future!

Heheh, Viktor always makes me smile - he's got a smirk that tells you he's up to something. :D

On the other hand, hmm. The response I have gotten thus far about the knights, both here and from asking Suiko-fans on my own friends list, does not bode well. Hmmmmmmm.

On the bright side, I guess this means that if we do write anything ourselves, there's certainly no fanon to worry about contradicting. :D

Seeing as you know tsukikoushi I'm sure you're already familiar with these, but for anyone else who may come across this thread sometime: This one (slash) is what converted me to the pairing in the first place, and this one (gen) actually made me cry.

...You know, not having been interested enough in them to look at stuff people were writing for them, I missed them both back in the day. Still missed the first one somehow when I went looking in the last week, but I read the second one for the first time yesterday. Ow. In a good way. I was thinking I'd have to comment to my own post in case anyone missed it. ;) Much thanks for pointing out another, too.

Hey I stumbled across this while looking for references and stuff of Camus' Costume (Go Anime Evolution Costume for 2008 @_@) So I decided to be a pest an comment? The two knights have got to be two of the best Characters in Suikoden II, though it saddens me that they got such little time in the storyline to develop. Thus very little merchendise and/or fanfiction (especially in english) was ever made...and it saddens me. I had a friend that was writing a multi-chaptered background fanfic about Miklotov and Camus starting from Miklotov's entrance into the knights along until the end of Suikoden II...She got 90% complete then had her computer crash...it was traumatizing...
Despite the fact I'm a Nanami/Camus supporter *coughs and hides the 10 or so doujinshi of such a pairing >.>;*

Er, my rant done if I find anything of interest! I'll come back and post it here! Ja ne! X3
