Lazard, the bastard, forced this job onto innocent, wide-eyed Cloud while on the train to Midgard. All the boy ever wanted was to go to Midgar and join SOLDIER, hopefully meet Sephiroth and the other SOLDIER First Class, and live life happily as a SOLDIER and send money back to his mother.
Instead, he got a job pushed onto him, and now he has to deal with a LOT more than what he expected. He was trying to join SOLDIER as an actual SOLDIER, goddammit, not as the Director of SOLDIER.
Cloud didn't know whether he should feel appalled, amused, or delighted.
At least he still got to meet Sephiroth.
"Kakashi regards her for a moment. “You’re not like other civilians.”
Hari shrugs. “I wasn’t always a civilian,” she admits. “I’ve never been a ninja, but I’ve seen my share of combat.”
I’ve seen friends killed in front of me.
I’ve been powerless to stop it.
The weight of the world has been on my shoulders, and miraculously I’m still standing.
Sometimes I don’t know why.
I’m not sure if I deserve to.
She doesn’t say it, but she doesn’t have to."
Or, Hari and Kakashi meet when they're both dealing with things, and one night will change everything.

Tseng didn’t know which god he pissed off in his past life to deserve this, but he apologised to every god he could think of anyway.

Zack likes wings. He also likes swords. Fighting is a good thing too. On another note, Midgar and SOLDIER are brilliant things, but at the age of seven - or was it six? - Zack finds something that rocks his world.
It's blonde, has wings, and likes food.
It isn't a chocobo.
It's a human.
Zack's always wanted an older brother.

In which Cloud is so not doing this again. Except then he is.
