    Summary

    (Reuploaded!) "Wait, Seph," Zack intervened. "How 'bout we divide and conquer? You head to the Reactor and Spike and I deal with the monsters. Then we could get things done quicker!”

    Sephiroth considered this, his jade eyes scanning over the dusk horizon where their destination stood, shielded by a thin blanket of clouds. "I suppose..." he mused. "Although, I believe I am more equipped for handling the kind of creatures that inhabit here, especially considering the dragon that delayed our ride."

    Zack nodded, acknowledging his friend's apt explanation. It was no question that dragons and wolves were chew toys for Seph. "Alright then! I'll fix up the Reactor while you two kick some monster butt. I'd love to take him with me, but I don't think they'd let a cadet through."

    ~

    When Sephiroth and Cloud return, they find the village engulfed in flames, set ablaze by a black-haired SOLDIER gone mad.

    Summary

    Four years after the Nibelheim Incident, Zack wakes up. Cloud does not. But they're both still alive, and Zack is willing to wait as long as he has to for Cloud to wake up. And he'll do whatever it takes to protect him in the meantime.

    (Or, Zack does some escaping and some surviving and a whole lot of traveling, all with a comatose Cloud on his back)

    “They are twin flames, two souls that are always meant to be together.
    Sometimes it takes time, sometimes it takes a parallel universe or something,

    They are a magic unto themselves.

    And together, they light the way for all of us.“

    - Emily Prentiss -

    Summary

    Cloud didn't mean to get into fights. He just hated the look of judgement that flashed in their eyes. He wondered how many citations it would take to get him kicked out of Shinra's Cadet program, it was apparently more than he had already racked up. While he was physically gifted, Cloud struggled with his classes; Standard was his second language. Maybe with some guidance from Zack, he'd be able to make as a SOLDIER after all. A jealous rival will use every advantage to put Zack Fair in his place, and the Cadet seems like the perfect target.

    Cloud meets Zack in the cadet SOLDIER program, who helps him become a promising candidate for a new type of Mako Infusion.

    Summary

    Sephiroth found the package in his mail when he entered his office that morning.

    Which was strange, because he normally didn’t get mail. Well, not personal mail. Or, at least, he never got to see it. Shinra screening tended to be rather thorough after all.

    To his surprise, the package held a... video game of all things. Final Fantasy VII? Huh. Useless waste of time... that Hojo would absolutely not approve of... perhaps just this once...

    Summary

    Summary

    When Cloud killed Sephiroth, all he was thinking of was stopping a monster and living up to Zack's faith in him.

    He hadn't been thinking about what came after, about SOLDIER, and Turks, and the lurking spectre of Hojo. He hadn't been thinking about being someone in ShinRa.

    AU where Shotgun could get Zack and Cloud out of Nibelheim before Hojo arrived.

    Summary

    And Cloud does fix things. Everything he can. The last thing he fixes is his own unwilling role in anchoring Sephiroth to eternal resurrection.

    Perhaps someone remembers the world that was unwritten. Perhaps some Power understands the true gravity of his thirteen years of sacrifice. Perhaps it is grateful enough to let him keep his promise and return home after the final battle...even if he is a lot smaller than they expected.
