    Summary

    I believe that you really want me, but it's not easy just to give in. So, let yourself go, and let love begin.
    ("Think About Me", Fleetwood Mac, Tusk)

    Zack Fair, recently promoted SOLDIER 1st-class and casual guitarist, is put in charge of training a fresh crew of infantrymen to become the new face of SOLDIER. Among which is Cloud Strife, a quiet man from Nibelheim who decides the only way to prove to his family and peers that he's strong is to join the military. His friend, Tifa Lockhart, doesn't need to be proven, however, so she follows him to escape the barren countryside and hopefully make a living. It's hard in Midgar when being poor is the norm, and Zack's girlfriend Aerith Gainsborough knows it, working in a flower shop and collecting church donations just to scrape by--but it's not so bad when you surround yourself with people to keep you company and keep you smiling, the more the merrier.

    This is a story about falling in love with your friends.

    (Setting is in the mid to late 90's, hybrid modern/FF7 world)

    Summary

    The world seems black and white at a glance, but the truth is never so easy. Where one draws the line between human and monster is a lot less clear when motive and deed don’t match, and a change in form is only proof of something that has been there all along. (Angel's Wings rewrite)

    Summary

    Waking up in the middle of a death battle with needles flying at him hadn't been one of Cloud's better days. Seeing a limp black-haired body cradled in his arms with said needles sticking out of his neck made it even worse. But that's just the beginning:

    "Hey you, make-up guy. You've been quiet. What's your beef with Konoha?" She pointed at him.

    Kankuro sputtered, "It's face paint!"

    Summary

    Cloud, the kids, and Tifa are sent back into the past without warning or explanation. Scattered from one another, they watch as unforeseen events take place when they shouldn't be, sending history on a new path. Good and evil alike are working behind the scenes, each trying to prevent the others triumph.

    When old allies can't be reached new ones must take up the mantle in their place. A time travel fic where Cloud is not the only hero, nor is he the one seeking redemption the most. As mysteries start to unravel behind the reason they've been sent back, one thing becomes clear to the time travelers.

    The Nightmare is returning, growing stronger than ever, and heralding Reunion's call once again.

    Hiatus for now, while in the works.

    Summary

    When Meteor fell, The Planet wasn’t strong enough to stop it. All life on Gaia came to an end. Sephiroth won and Jenova sailed the cosmos with The Planet as her vessel… But by using the last of her strength before she perished Minerva, aided by the spirits of the Cetra, called on the power of Holy.

    Not to summon forth the Lifestream and use it as a weapon, but to open up a rift in the Lifestream and send someone back into the past, for one last chance to stop everything before it happens. Cloud is the one sent back during the struggle, only Cloud is not himself. Not fully. Being in the Lifestream, then thrown into a different timeline – he is not sure where, when, or even who he’s supposed to be when he wakes up…

    As the world around him starts down a familiar spiral, the only thing Cloud is certain of besides his name is that he’s meant to be doing something – but he just can’t remember if that something is meant to be killing the monsters around him…or trying to save them.

    Summary

    Witnessing the end of the world, being chosen as Champion and sent back in time to change the past – all these things Cloud could almost have expected. What he did not count on, however, is landing himself in a world where Sephiroth has stayed strangely sane, Shinra are supposedly the good guys, and his younger cadet-self is in a healthy… fivesome?!?

    Seems like catching sight of one’s dying once-savior and bringing him along for the ride is enough to throw Gaia’s Timetravel ™ off track and turn things a little… sideways.

    Summary

    Six years old Cloud Strife was only minding his own business, but randomly getting an older brother was kind of awesome. Even if he now lived inside his head and claimed his name was Cloud Strife too.

    Summary

    No man has ever held Aerith in a embrace worth anticipating. Their fists always in her palms because she'd never been worthy of interlocking fingers. They would always scatter at the idea of a complete her, as though she were a work of art and not an entire person.

    Summary

    Broken bones can be set. Cuts sealed. Other wounds healed. But how do you mend a heart? How do you ease the pain of a soul battered by the hardships of life? How do you cure loneliness when there’s no one who can break the locks you’ve set to protect your vulnerabilities? Sometimes, the answer is not in front of us, but in a different world where another just like us is seeking the same comforts and compassion.

    Summary

    Aerith was a nice girl. At least, Zack was pretty sure that Aerith was exactly the kind of nice girl of whom his mother would have approved. She was kind and gentle and fun and playful and -- okay, he could probably discuss the things about Aerith that were great for a while.

    The thing was, this? This was not the sort of thing nice girls asked their boyfriends to do.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a Godly valley with mountains that could touch the sky and trees that cast long shadows. The people who live in the small mountain town are hardworking and happy, so long as they never stray into the forest where the wolves lurk in the darkness. Adults brave the trees in groups to hunt the vicious pack as they have for decades, the conflict is deep with no sign of victory for either side. But wolves are not the only threat, nor the village's only secret - and the link connecting them is a simple cloak of Red ...

    Every night, from the highest peak of the uninhabited mountains, a single Wolf howls to the good folk of the valley – as a warning, as a message, and as a reminder of what they did:
    “Beware, beware, the Path where the Witch once stood. Beware, beware, of the Wolf in the Wood.”

    Summary

    Aerith opened her eyes to see Cloud standing in front of her, expression blank. She smiled--Holy had been summoned, and the Planet would be safe. Then time seemed to stop all around her. A foreign sound filled the air as something materialized between them, and Aerith became very confused when she could make out clearly what the thing was.

    It was a blue box.
