About/Creation

Decided in Autumn 2013, MGW wanted to create three single-chapter fanfic shorts, but wouldn't decide on what they would be about until late February 2014. Nothing was revealed about until their completion in June 2014.

Lucky 13
MGW wanted Cyber Formula to be a part of FF.net and added the category back in April.
The Law of Sword
The game begins 6 months after Lyn loses her family. Neither characters have met before then. From a Support Conversation from Guy, it is suggested that the Lorca are an elusive tribe of Sacae, as he has shown to not know of Lyn. MGW thought of Guy being cute, knowing that he is awkward around the opposite gender, and came up with the idea of facing the strong-minded Lyn. Also, MGW wanted to describe the Taliver attack, with Lyn and Guy involved, but changed her mind. The title was chosen by the idea of "the Law of Sacae" (サカの掟; saka no okite); eventually, it became ken no okite (The Law of Sword).
Betting's Off
MGW wanted to do a gundam fic, even considering Gundam AGE, but made her decision after thoroughly enjoying Build Fighters. Due to the show's tendency to make fun of the older gundam shows, MGW thought it would be a easy fic that does the same.
