The ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/456587/Twin-Lance Twin-Lance Verse]]'' is a set of ''FinalFantasyVIII'' fan fictions which are set post-game and focus on the lives of (mostly) the main characters. As of this time, six stories exist and are meant to be read in chronological order, as events in earlier stories are often mentioned again later on.

Each chapter of ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4136554/1/What_Lies_Within What Lies Within]]'' seems to take place at various times in the series, and should probably be read last.
Spoilers below, which are marked.
!!This series provides examples of:
* ADayInTheLimelight - ''Red Strokes'' focuses on Nida. Can't remember who he is? [[LampshadeHanging Most of the characters can't either]], at least at first.
* TheAtoner - Seifer, and also Edea to some extent.
* ColdBloodedTorture - [[spoiler:What Seifer had done to him regularly in D-District until Ellone rescued him.]]
* DeadFic - ''What Lies Within'' and ''Unsilenced'' are both unfinished and have not been updated in close to two years.
* HeroicBSOD - Seifer freaks out after hearing that [[spoiler:Ellone is pregnant with twins. He quickly gets over it, though.]]
* MosesInTheBullrushes - [[spoiler:Cid and Edea Kramer are Selphie's parents.]]
* PairTheSpares - Averted compared to the majority of FFVIII fan fiction, since [[spoiler:Quistis ends up with Nida, Zell with Fujin and Seifer with Ellone, instead of Quistis and Zell pairing off with Seifer and the Library Girl respectively.]]
* TakingTheKids - The main plot of ''Leatherbound Secret'', in which we learn that [[spoiler:Irvine fathered a child before the events of the game, and the baby's mother suddenly wants custody of him.]]
* TemporaryBlindness - [[spoiler:Squall. Laguna also had it happen to him before.]]
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue - A few of the stories end years into the future and show how the characters are faring.
