    Summary

    "Emotions are a funny thing. Do you know how they work? Physiologically.” Hojo watched Vincent writhe on the floor, crying out guttural sobs of agony.

    Flesh that was not his own bubbled up from within him as his skin split, dark and wet.

    “When a person feels something strongly, it triggers a reflex. Fight or flight. Pupils dilate, heart rate increases. A relic of our ancestors. To give us an advantage to survive a predator. To run faster, harder, longer. To feel, Turk, is to survive.”

    Vincent’s form was no longer his own-- a hulking creature, fur matted, dark with black blood. Claws and teeth and such an unnatural, grotesque shape-- bipedal, but nothing human.

    “It was an override of this response, with some additional tweaking. You used to hide your feelings, dog. Not anymore. You feel, and you become. But now... you are the predator. Just like you always were. No more hiding. Gallant?” Hojo grinned wickedly. “You are but a Gallant Beast.”

    Vincent Valentine's origin story. Explores Sephiroth's conception and birth, Lucrecia's motives and the reasons for and mechanics of Vincent's limit breaks.

    Does not consider the FFVII compilation outside of the original game canon.

    Summary

    He doesn´t really notice the person moving behind him, more than used to the occasional touch on unfortunate places after years using public transportations.

    So although the brush against his ass springs him back from his distraction, it´s not alarming by itself. He simply shifts a bit forward, imagining it´s someone adjusting in the cramped space. The touch goes away and he turns his attention back to the window.

    Then— again.

    Summary

    There was a loud clanking, a latching noise somewhere ahead of him that echoed oddly in his padded box.

    “All hooked up?” called the man from earlier.
    He could only just feel that whatever he was hooked to was moving, heart pounding and mind racing. What was in the other boxes?

    His ass clenched, the clinical stretching he’d gotten as a ‘kindness’ before being sent to the Mad King still had him sore and feeling over sensitive…

    Well, some clinical part of him calmed, if he got fucked by an animal it was at least better than whatever the Mad King planned.

    Though, if he did get through this, if he did endure… whatever was going to be waiting for him, then the stables and kennels and whatnot were bound to be less guarded than the palace, right? No one was stupid enough to try and steal a warhorse or a hellhound, not the ones specially trained for the Mad Kings forces.
    If he could just endure…
