    Summary

    Prior to joining Shinra, if someone asked Cloud to describe his hero Sephiroth he would’ve said 'inspiring'. After meeting him, Cloud would add the word 'dangerous'. When Cloud became Sephiroth's student, he could only say Sephiroth is 'impossible to please'.

    While Cloud struggles to meet the high standard set for him, Sephiroth seems to have greater plans for Cloud than he could ever guess.
    Why does Sephiroth look for scars Cloud does not have? Why does the general seem to be reciting a script only he knows the words to?
    Cloud isn't sure if he'll survive being Sephiroth’s student long enough to find out.

    Summary

    After defeating Sephiroth and the Remnants, Cloud is now faced with a new obstacle; one that he is unable to defeat by himself. His past regrets keep creeping up on him but his self-isolation isn't doing him any favors. Maybe with the help of his friends and people long since dead will he be able to resolve his past traumas and learn to forgive himself.

    Summary

    When Sephiroth messes with the flow of time, and Mercenary Cloud Strife and Avalanche decided to challenge him by going through the portal, the decision erased the entire future of Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus. A whole world erased. All except Cloud Strife.

    He can't be absorbed into the Lifestream. Aerith has a solution. Send him into another universe where he didn't exist. Cloud goes along with it because, why not? No one told him he would land in the last place he would have ever wanted.

    Summary

    Cloud is cast into the past where Shinra Corp is still alive and kicking, or is it? Cloud has no idea how he ended up in a Shinra morgue after an explosion killed him (and hopefully Loz and Yazoo), but things don't get better when Sephiroth shows up with a new sound weapon.

    One thing Cloud is sure of: he's no puppet.

    Summary

    All Genesis wants to do before his heat is to curl up in a duvet and eat his bodyweight in ice cream, but he has an important report to review and sign by the end of the week. All Angeal needs to do is to find a nice beta trooper to come and drop it off for him. Simple enough, right?

    Cloud just wants to keep his head down, work hard and excel at his career. But throw a Genesis shaped spanner in the works and nothing will ever be quite the same again.

    A story of mistaken designations, oblivious friends and political machinations.

    Summary

    That was the start of it all: seeing Cloud collapse from his own carelessness and weakness irritated him beyond all belief.

    “When was the last time you ate before now?” Sephiroth asked, his tone deceptively pleasant.

    Summary

    The town of Nibelheim was razed to the ground on Shinra's orders, taking Cloud Strife with it.
    Five years later, Cloud wakes up. He's alive, somehow, but has lost most of his memories and is forced to accept help from his newfound friends.

    When Cloud learns what Shinra has done to him and his hometown, he insists that he join Tifa and Barret in taking them down.
    Though he manages to recover many of his memories, Cloud has no idea what a soulmate is. He finds out the hard way that he's bound to all four of Shinra's most powerful SOLDIERs, which certainly throws a wrench in his plans.

    Cloud wants nothing to do with his soulmates, but they're persistent enough that he doesn't have much say in the matter.

    Summary

    When Aerith had mystically appeared in front of him and asked for a favour, Cloud should have ran for the hills instead of crying and sobbing and agreeing to anything she said.

    And now, he was meant to become Sephiroth’s foil in some other wacky universe. The villain that would push Sephiroth to become the hero, in the same way Sephiroth did for him.

    Cloud had no idea what he was doing.

    Summary

    Gaia can't be saved, Jenova's poison too far reaching and Sephiroth tied too closely to her Chosen One. Unable to break that bond, she chooses to steer into it. She completes their bond fully and sends Cloud back in time. This time, if one is killed, the other is halved. Cloud can work with that.

    Sephiroth gains knowledge of this bond in vague dreams. A blonde warrior who is a sight to behold, but whose death would mean his own. If he is real, he must protect him at all costs.

    Too bad nobody told Cloud what Sephiroth wants.

     Or; that one time-travel fic where Cloud is just trying to save Gaia whilst avoiding Sephiroth until last. Sephiroth is just trying to find and protect the blonde warrior whose life is inexplicably tied to his own.

    Summary

    Gaia sends Cloud back in time to before the events of Crisis Core. The 1st Class SOLDIERs are still friends, their bonds not yet straining, and Zack is still a 2nd Class SOLDIER under Angeal. Cloud has a chance to keep disaster from nearly destroying once again. He's alone for an impossible mission. Or so he thinks. But Gaia is not about to let her beloved champion be alone. Even if the circumstances change, the bonds he created with his previous will be rekindled.

    It's the least she can do, isn't it, after asking so much from him. She doesn't want him to be alone, not anymore.

    Summary

    Cloud was certain that if he ever saw Sephiroth again, he would not hesitate to end him.

    That is, until he actually saw him again. Standing before him was a small child who shared the name and face of the monster that caused so much pain, dirty and injured and scared. A child who had done no wrong, but was capable of world-ending horrors.

    Cloud does the logical and merciful thing: takes him home like a kid who found a stray dog.

    Summary

    “I’d say it’s a pleasure to meet you, but the circumstances could’ve been better.”

    He didn’t bother to reply. The sounds of the wailing infant were enough.

    “So? You got a name? Don’t keep me waiting here.”

    A name. He couldn’t recall any name for himself. The harder he tried to remember, the more distant it seemed to become. However -

    “You need to get up and get moving -.”

    Don’t let them capture you again -.”

    The voice spoke it with such conviction. With no room for doubt.

    “My name is Cloud.”

    It was a good a name as any. 

    Cloud wakes up with no memories of his past and no knowledge of this new land, but for the sake of his new blond-haired and freckled charge, and with help from a disembodied voice, he's willing to fight anything. Including half-baked prophecies.

    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.

    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 real 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

    Cloud gets pushed into a pool of mako by the Nibelheim bullies. By the time he is rescued he was in a mako coma. When he wouldn't wake up his mother became desperate. They ended up in Wutai, the capitol no less.

    Through a series of unfortunate events Cloud is stuck there. And somehow wins Emperor Godo's heart to claim him as his ward and assign him to protect the princess.

    In other words, Cloud is aged up a bit to tie in the events of him fighting the wrong side of a war. Things get weird when he meets Sephiroth. Now Cloud has to choose between Sephiroth and his loyalty to Yuffie.

    Summary

    Sephiroth becomes General. It creates the fist conflict between him and his only friends. Words are powerful. And Genesis accidentally sends Sephiroth into a moment of despair so deeply rooted, he begins to search for another like him in his sleep.

    He meets a mysterious being who claims to have made the Jenova mistake. Sephiroth is too entranced to immediately ask questions until after they are mentally bound.

    Well, live and learn. Now to live for love or risk destroying each other.

    (In which Cloud accidently causes Jenova when he arrived on Gaia, kills her after nearly decimating an entire race, goes to sleep, only to be partially awoken by a heartbroken and lonely Sephiroth. Oh and Cloud is a potential God? Just not one that is recognized to be a diety within Gaia. But Sephiroth latches onto him instead of Jenova.)
