    Summary

    “I see Midgar almost every day. I’ve never forgotten.”

    “Yeah? Well, good. I’m sick and tired of your so-called ‘heroics’ turning the public’s eye away from what you’ve hidden. A snake can shed its skin, but it’s still a snake.”
    ==================================================================
    Happiness is only temporary...or at least, that seems to always be the asterisk attached to every aspect of Cloud Strife's life. After a year of peace and rebuilding with Tifa at the bar, the slow yet tempting flood of contentment leaves Cloud completely vulnerable when a couple stricken with grief swears to make him and Tifa pay for the destruction of Midgar. Though he hates to go back down that dark path, Cloud begins to wonder if he truly deserves anything at all.

    Summary

    One day Cloud was living the single, happily traditional goth life with the occasional individual (identity irrelevant) spending time in his bed. The next there's three boys all dropped on his doorstep he doesn't believe are really his and several sob stories about mothers he doesn't even remember. Cloud hates children and never imagined himself becoming a father to even one. So when he puts these three up for adoption, he expects it to be the end of it.

    He was wrong.

    Summary

    Years ago, Sephiroth not only burnt down Nibelheim, but also his connection with his soulmate. In the present day, Cloud tries to make sense of his life and the mess in his head. Over time Sephiroth slowly begins to realize the weight of his actions and tries to pick up the pieces, but can you really fix something when it has been burnt to a crisp?

    A story spanning over multiple parts of the compilation, in which Sephiroth will eventually try to redeem himself, not only for Cloud, but for the world as well, and where Cloud is not sure how far forgiveness should go. The result is a long and rocky road for both of them.

    Set mostly during the Remake. Canon divergent, but tries to follow the events of the canon as well.

    !! Title might be changed at some point!

    Summary

    The story of FF7 if Zack lived.

    Shortly after being ambushed outside of Midgar, Zack and Cloud were separated: Zack remained under Turk care, while Cloud - confused from mako poisoning - went missing somewhere on the streets of Midgar. Now Zack has to somehow find his best friend before Shinra and Hojo can, not to mention that he has to stay under the radar himself - but with the Turks keeping secrets from him, and with so many reminders of his previous four years of being a lab experiment, staying anonymous is becoming more and more difficult.

    Meanwhile, Cloud has literally stumbled into Tifa's care. Given his mako-enhanced eyes, it doesn't take long for him to be recruited into Avalanche... but it's quickly becoming apparent that he's not the strong, sturdy SOLDIER that he'd like everyone to think. His memories are disjointed and his mind feels foggy, to the point that it becomes difficult to tell what's real and what's not. But Tifa needs him. He made a promise to her after all, and he intends to keep that promise... no matter what it takes.

    Summary

    He sighed contently. He wasn’t sure where this melody was coming from. He didn’t think he had learned it from any of his piano books as a kid. He didn’t recognize it, at least. But he liked it. There was just something about it that, while it was improvisation, reminded him of something.

    Summary

    .
    This is a story about Sephiroth.
    How he tried to single-handedly overthrow ShinRa.
    How he died yet wasn’t really dead.
    And how someone else then took his place in this universe.

    Or:

    Sephiroth figures that no matter what universe he travels to, he will always run into Cloud’s arms sooner or later.
    It usually ends deadly for one of them.
    This time, however, fate seems to have different plans for them.
    ——

    A fix-it story; but with alternate universes instead of time traveling.

    Summary

    Cloud is thrown back in time and physically altered by JENOVA, which is a problem but not enough of one to keep him from exploding the Nibelheim reactor and sending the Mansion up in flames. No, the real problem is the flamboyant red-clad SOLIDER asshole who takes one look at him and decides that kidnapping a rogue experiment is a charitable thing to do.

    Maybe he shouldn't have dodged the name question by calling himself "Subject C."
