    Summary

    Four years after the Nibelheim Incident, Zack wakes up. Cloud does not. But they're both still alive, and Zack is willing to wait as long as he has to for Cloud to wake up. And he'll do whatever it takes to protect him in the meantime.

    (Or, Zack does some escaping and some surviving and a whole lot of traveling, all with a comatose Cloud on his back)

    updates every Sunday until I get lazy and decide to remove this line from the summary

    Summary

    Cloud Strife is a part of a very small percentage of people that live on Gaia with Intramind Deity Association (IDA for short), a kind of phenomenon where a human creates a mental and physical bond with a fantastical creature. But because people with IDA are so rare on the planet, many countries found ways to use them for their own purposes and so did Shinra IDA Academy, a special military-styled college that gathers humans with IDA from all around the world.
    Thanks to his strong bond with a tiny blood pixie he named "Dada", Cloud managed to enroll in this prestigious college along with his childhood friends, Zack Fair and Tifa Lockhart, but on the day of the enrollment celebration, the trio is attacked by the group of thugs.
    And even though they hold up well against the attackers, everything is finally settled once a mysterious, silver-haired man swoops in and makes thugs run in fear. Cloud is immediately mesmerized by his hero's strength and ethereal beauty... only to find out his savior also attends the same college.

    Summary

    UPDATED 20 Jan 2022

    As a werewolf living in a society which predominantly consisted of human, Sephiroth thought he finally got everything under control.

    He loves his job at the fire department, rescuing people and saving cats stuck on trees. He got friends that he can count on, except for Genesis, who is still being a prick.

    He finally got the hang of assimilating into the society with zero 'incident' until this girl decided to drop into his life and screw it up.

    A slow burn, romantic comedy told in 100-word snippets.

    Summary

    After defeating Sephiroth and the Remnants, Cloud is now faced with a new obstacle; one that he is unable to defeat by himself. His past regrets keep creeping up on him but his self-isolation isn't doing him any favors. Maybe with the help of his friends and people long since dead will he be able to resolve his past traumas and learn to forgive himself.

    Summary

    “Who are you seeing? Is it—is it him!?”

    A lingering side of Cloud knows that his healing with Aerith, and his tears with Zack, had been undeniably real.

    The man Tifa speaks of has plagued his nightmares for the last year, nowhere to be seen in the light of day or in the faces of his family. Sephiroth is no longer a part of Cloud. Sephiroth can no longer tear apart his visage and reach into the caverns of his existence, crushing everything in sight like a bloody, wilted carnation. Sephiroth is no more when it comes to battling with death before he gets a chance to live. Sephiroth is gone. But Zack and Aerith… Cloud can’t say the same for.

    He hopes he never has to.

    Summary

    ... Or wing.

    I realized that wings would be really good for hugging people, which means that they're wasted on all the people who actually get wings, because they never hug anyone. EVER. FOR SOME REASON.
    So I wrote this.

    Summary

    “There’s my girl!”

    “And there’s my wonderboy.” Her voice is twinkling rain, falling against stained glass windows… and Cloud doesn’t know what to do with himself anymore.

    Shuffling his feet makes the duo turn to look at him—he feels himself wilt on the spot. But her eyes, carrying the softness of cotton sheets and lily petals, welcome him warmly. She clasps her hands together behind her back as she approaches Cloud yet, for once, he doesn’t find himself wanting to recoil away.

     

    Cloud meets the angel of the slums church, and doesn’t want to leave.

    Summary

    A blast of rainy-cool air hits them, refreshing and clean compared to the sticky, humid smell of people. A small young woman politely says "Excuse me," rather quietly and unfit for the loudness of the train.

    For a split second, they meet eyes. Wow, she's gorgeous. Widened, awe-inspired emerald green eyes, auburn hair pulled into a ponytail atop her head, an outfit consisting of light grays and pinks. "Welcome!" he beams, greeting her loudly over the buzzing and chatty ambiance of their train cart (one of many packed full). "Welcome to hell!"

    And then the train lurches. "Woah!" Zack exclaims, laughing as everyone, including himself, lurches along with it.

    Inspired by something that actually happened lol.

    Summary

    There's a man Cloud can't remember. He lives in his memories and wears a blurry face. No matter who he's with or what he's doing, no matter how important either are, the man in his memory is always there with him.

     
    His chest began to feel tight and it wasn’t from the corset squeezing his ribs. Cloud rubbed a hand over his chest and forced himself to breath. Aerith was walking too fast for him. He didn’t want to go to Don Corneo’s mansion. He didn’t want to be looked at any more than he already was. Cloud looked up at the steel sky that trapped him from the world above. He could feel someone waiting for him.

    Summary

    She often looked into his eyes, whenever she felt like taking a glimpse at the sky. Yeah, he’d promised her he’d take her to see it one day and she could compare the color. Which he made sure to stress out to her every time, it was not scary at all.

    “It won’t be because you’ll be there with me.” She’d say then. Damn right.

    Short journey about their growing love, to the promise of a blue sky.

    Summary

    A FFVII spin on the classic tale of "Cinderella," with a fairy-tale AU in the Kingdom of Midgar!

    Since she was a little girl Aerith has known pain, abuse, neglect, and humiliation. Yet through it all, she remains gentle, kind, and giving. However, she also longs for freedom and escape from her wicked stepmother and her horrible stepsisters.

    Prince Zack is pressured to find a bride due to his father's cell degeneration. But he only wants one girl: the one he has talked to in the slums while he was in disguise. The one with the kind smile who hands out yellow lilies.

    The two of them dream seemingly impossible things, but both dream the most impossible: to be together.

    TW: mentions of abuse/neglect, brief moments of abuse
