    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

    Cloud's been running from his past in order to keep his brother safe. But now that his brother is safe Cloud sets out on one of the most difficult journeys of his life. Nothing but Cloud's own fears and uncertainties stand in the way of reuniting with the man he loves, but to also face the man who destroyed him so long ago. Cloud has to dig deep to find his resolve and courage to attain the things he has been searching for.

    Updated: Mostly weekly (I hope) XD.

    This is Part Four of my four part series - In Pursuit of a Normal Life. Cloud decides which way his life will finally flow.

    This story continues on from the end of A Place To Belong.

    Maybe a good idea to read this chronologically. But all parts are actually self contained. So you technically could just read each fic on its own.

    Part One - A Small Glimpse
    Part Two - A Place To Belong
    Part Three - The Clock Tower

    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

    Despite everything, Cloud thinks himself lucky. He has group of friends who survived the worst together, and who have done everything in their power to help him heal from everything he's lost. Thanks to them, he's finally found something like happiness...but old wounds can be reopened, and Cloud's not the only person with a life to rebuild. And AVALANCHE is gonna rebuild it better than before, because that's how they roll.

    Expect a lot of Strife clan dynamics, hugging, lame jokes, and a general determination to be happy, even in the face of...whatever they're facing.

    (Also: pretty much no one asked for this, but I made a playlist for this fic (the current tracklist can be found here). I add a song every time I upload a chapter.)
