    Summary

    After leaving for a routine Shinra mission, Second Class SOLDIER Zack Fair is called back to base unexpectedly. A fire has spread over the entire base and his best friend Cadet Strife is missing. Zack bolts home to quell the flames, and more importantly, find Cloud.

    Written because I wanted to see an intense scene of Zack searching for Cloud in the aftermath of a huge fire, freaking out when he DOESN'T find him and then when he DOES. Enjoy 7k of that.

    Summary

    In all his time working as an omega-for-hire, Cloud Strife had never expected to be contacted by Shinra. It seemed outlandish, completely unheard of, but it was real. Being hired to help the First Class SOLDIERs through their ruts was something he would have never thought possible.

    Well, at least he was quick to adapt. He had a feeling the SOLDIERs were going to be more demanding than his usual clientele.

    -

    AU: Omega-for-hire Cloud is known for keeping alphas company during their ruts. He's contacted by a desperate Rufus Shinra in a final last ditch effort to keep the Firsts from destroying company property when their ruts hit.

    Summary

    It's all over. Geostigma is eradicated, Sephiroth is gone again, and the world is left to slowly heal itself, while Cloud is left with his thoughts. Everything and everyone else seemed like it was beginning to move on, so why does he feel like he is nothing but a broken relic of the past; a past everyone desperately wants to forget. He’d forgotten what it feels like to not be either numb to everything, or mentally writhing in silent torment. What did true laughter feel like -- not just a cock of the lips, or little huffs of comical air -- laughter from deep in one’s stomach? Does it feel good? Does it produce tears of happiness, instead of those bred from agony? He’d heard the corny line “time heals all wounds” enough times by now, to know time passing was not going to fix him.

    If he reached for the light, it burned him; if he turned his back on it, he’d drown in dark uncertainty. Dark, cold, alone, afraid. These were the only words that could be used to describe his reality. But what if his slate could be wiped clean? What if, in another timeline, Cloud Strife had never existed? The only question is, will he be able to push aside his pain, and try to embrace the happy life he should have had?
