    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.

    "I'm afraid I need you to come with me," the Turk said.
    "Bad news," Aerith whispered back.

    Summary

    Cloud is thrown back in time and physically altered by JENOVA, which is a problem but not enough of one to keep him from exploding the Nibelheim reactor and sending the Mansion up in flames. No, the problem is the flamboyant red-clad SOLIDER asshole who takes one look at him and decides that kidnapping a rogue experiment is a charitable thing to do.

    Maybe he shouldn't have dodged the name question by calling himself "Subject C."

    Summary

    Everyone has a father. It’s just biology. Cloud is no exception, but he isn’t looking for an absentee parent, not at this late date. His priorities are simple and ambitious, pass the exam to become SOLDIER. With his friend Zack ready and willing to help, that goal might almost be attainable.

    Of course, when you’re least looking, the past can creep up and change everything.

    Ch 16

    “No, I may not know what I’m doing with my life from here on, but I’m not hiding here when Aerith is in missing and Zack needs our help. I’m going.”

    I can't believe I binge read all this at midnight, but yeah I can cos its riveting!
