    Summary

    The team have left Midgar and are now beginning their wider journey through Gaia. In the aftermath of what has happened so far, Cloud confesses his feelings to a shocked Aerith. But what about Zack? Before Cloud reached Midgar, Cloud and Zack trekked through the surrounding badlands to get there. Why did they have to part ways? Despite this, Zack eventually meets up with the team – and a Cloud that doesn’t remember him (at least not at first). Once they’re all together, though, Cloud, Aerith, and Zack, bring these deep interconnections to the table. Meanwhile, Sephiroth sets his plans into motion as the team does their best to stop him and save the world.

    Summary

    Cloud made it to Midgar. He even joined Shinra’s army, but there he stopped. He didn’t kill Sephiroth, and Hojo never knew he existed. He did his tour and got out.

    He settled into life under the plate, earning gil through odd jobs and scrounging the hills around Midgar for anything he could sell – mostly scales and claws from the monsters that attacked him.

    On this particular day, it wasn't a monster he found, but a shot-to-hell SOLDIER who wasn’t quite dead.

    A story of building a new life, gaining new friends, and a past that isn't quite done.

    Summary

    “Now get out of here, I’m going back to bed,” the man said.

    The man considered him and Cloud for a long moment. “Is this a trick question, or…?”

    --

    Zack and Cloud are freed from their scientific confinement post-Nibelheim when Vincent decides that the lab is too loud for him to sleep through anymore.

    Summary

    Cloud always thought that he and Zack had been close. Closer than friends were supposed to be. And he'd always thought it had been mutual. One day he stumbled across a piece of information that made him re-evaluate all that he thought he knew.

     

    This is set in a post Advent Day setting, and somehow Zack lived. Nibelheim happened, but the labs wasn't overly traumatising. A little story is a small exploration on queer relationships/friendships, and why they can be so difficult to navigate.

    TW: Contains angst and a pretty heavily depressed Cloud.

    Summary

    They had finally managed to reach Midgar. Both had seen better days, but at least they were alive. What more could go wrong?

    Apparently the greatest threat the world has ever known deciding it was a good time to make a move. He had better work harder if he wants to be the hero.

    Zack lives au, with a bit of omegaverse thrown in. Because why not?

    Summary

    His mentor's disappearance causes Zack Fair to discover a haunting truth about the mega-corporation he works for. Will he succumb to the alien calamity that seeks to seize the planet through him? Everything hinges on his capacity to grasp the reasons of the woman who betrayed him.

    "You think I'm too dumb to notice, but I can see you behave like a little obedient android through life." He gave her a deep look, the kind he only used when dropping his carefree guy facade. "There's something not quite right about you, Sadie. It's almost as if you're playing Shinra's psychologist."

    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

    Summary

    “Does Zack know you’re here?” He asked. Cloud gave a half-hearted shrug, then shook his head.

    “He’s gonna worry.” Barret said.

    “He’s always worried.” Cloud replied and frowned, looking straight ahead. Barret almost startled, hearing his voice. “I’m… difficult.” Cloud added after a moment of silence.

    You and me both, Barret thought.
