    Summary

    What I post here are just segments and shorts from a greater work I mess around with in my spare time. They've been edited from the original and won't generally connect to other things I'll (eventually) post. So don't read too much into it. Or do. There's going to be worlds intersecting and characters meeting but these should be one shots taking place in the same world. Chronologically they might not be in order, and I'm going to do way more showing than telling. EDIT: I forgot I remembered how much I love flavor text at the beginning of chapters

    Summary

    Cloud was having another night terror.

    Well, he was pretty sure it was a night terror. It just felt so real he couldn’t be sure, especially when Sephiroth was involved. He’d been having them every time he closed his eyes for the past two weeks, and the strain of it was starting to show. He felt like hell. Must look like it, too, from the way Tifa kept fussing over him.

    Sephiroth was being silent, which was somehow worse than when he filled Cloud’s ears with poison. Cloud was laid out on his back, feet flat on the bed, wearing nothing but the tank and boxer-briefs he always slept in. He couldn’t move; maybe it was just the dream, or maybe Sephiroth had cast a paralysis spell on him. It wouldn’t be the first time.

    Summary

    Aerith didn’t remember her mother. She didn’t know her name or anything about her besides the fact that she abandoned her as a child, as Veld said. Some nights she would dream of a warm presence and a kind, if tired, smile, but she never lingered on it. She didn’t think of her mother often. Sephiroth didn’t either, after all. It wasn’t like wondering about missing parents ever worked with Shinra employees.

    Summary

    The team have left Midgar and are now beginning their wider journey through Gaia. In the aftermath of what has happened so far, Cloud confesses his feelings to a shocked Aerith. But what about Zack? Before Cloud reached Midgar, Cloud and Zack trekked through the surrounding badlands to get there. Why did they have to part ways? Despite this, Zack eventually meets up with the team – and a Cloud that doesn’t remember him (at least not at first). Once they’re all together, though, Cloud, Aerith, and Zack, bring these deep interconnections to the table. Meanwhile, Sephiroth sets his plans into motion as the team does their best to stop him and save the world.
