    Summary

    The whole thing started with Tifa, of course.

    "Cloud," she said, coming out from behind the bar, rag in hand and a serious look on her face, "I have a favor to ask. It's... a little complicated, but please, before you say no, promise me you'll listen to the whole thing?"

    He warily crossed his arms. This wasn't going to be good, whatever it was, especially not if she was starting out so desperate. He didn't want to promise her anything, but... it was Tifa. Cloud owed her, a lot. "We'll see."

    "I want your help getting some information. That's it."

    "So what am I supposed to do, exactly?"

    "The first part's easy. Get Zack and come back to the bar tomorrow morning, before it opens. Kunsel's got a plan." She laughed. "Actually, he's got an entire presentation ready. You know Kunsel."

    Cloud did, unfortunately.

    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)

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

    “Wait,” Zack said. “Do you really want to just lie there having nightmares?”

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

    --

    Summary

    Instead of waking up in the church after his (near) death at the hands of Sephiroth’s remnants, Cloud wakes up on the wasteland outside of Midgar over two years before. Zack faces down Shinra’s infantry, and Cloud finds he has the strength to change history.

    But to do that, Cloud has to face it all again, while warring with his own splintered psyche. Fortunately, he doesn’t have to do it alone, if only he’d remember that.

    Summary

    Claudia did not see old family members in the Lifestream when she died. Instead, she found herself in a cold stone hall, the winter wind screaming outside the windows. A craggy, one-eyed warrior looked down at her from a carven oak throne.

    Summary

    Former SOLDIER Third Class, Cloud Strife knew that dealing with the remnants of the Deepground labs would uncover some ghosts and stir up a few nightmares. He’d been prepared for that. But, as fate would have it, some of those ghosts are more physical than memory, and Cloud will face that, too.

    Summary

    Normally, all he would take were two shots so he could keep himself relatively in his senses. It was always his job to look after the others, to see how much they were drinking and to make sure none of them went overboard. That was also Tifa’s job as well, but this time, she encouraged Cloud to drink more, along with their other friends. It was a party, and they believed Cloud wasn’t giving himself any favors by staying sober.

    Summary

    Cloud thought he’d made peace with his past back there in Mideel. He thought he’d be ready to move forward now, come what may. Sephiroth, ShinRa, the Weapons, Meteor… All simply obstacles to overcome.

    But this? Cloud didn’t think he’d ever be ready for this. For the sight of a single swordsman standing tall in the grassland just outside the Midgar Wastes, blade in hand and head held high.

    Right in the path of Diamond Weapon.

    Summary

    It was all such a blur to him. One moment, he was laying on the ground in the rain, covered in blood and dirt and full of bullets. Right, Cloud was there too, looking like a drowned cat with how hard the downpour was. Zack was glad to finally see him conscious. He remembered giving him the Buster Sword, then everything went dark.

    The next time he woke, he was in a hospital. Sitting at his bedside was a much different Cloud, a much older Cloud compared to when he saw him last.

    The fear of losing someone you love

    “Zack!” Cloud sits up in a panic, his throat sore from his scream as he fumbles with his nightlight. He swats the bed next to him and when he doesn’t find what he is looking for the panic inside him flares up.
    He flips himself over to the otherside, seeing it completely empty and Cloud starts ripping the bed sheets and covers off the bed.
