    Summary

    Reincarnation, sure. Sounds nice in practice. A new life, a chance to maybe live differently. One tiny problem… pretty sure you weren't supposed to REMEMBER your past. And you definitely weren't supposed to land in a video game. Terrific. Hope whatever God I offended gets a real kick before a monster eats me.

    Summary

    The concept of soulmates has never been an ideology that Tifa Lockhart has subscribed to - she’s too busy trying to start up and manage her own business to consider such distractions. However, the same can’t be said of her roommate and best friend, Aerith Gainsborough, who has always had an eerie sixth sense when it comes to matters of the heart. Although Tifa has long since accepted that she’s always going to be along for the ride when it comes to Aerith’s more eccentric endeavors, she finds that, eventually, she won’t be able to remain a casual observer in the tangled web that is being weaved... [slowburn Cloud x Tifa/Zack x Aerith AU.]

    Summary

    A quiet bar in a warm back ally. A cold hallway alive with laughter. A hollow church in ruin. A rain soaked road at night. A long-spoken trip untaken.

    These are the snippets and blurbs and one-shots of our favorite residents of Shinra and Midgar before the events of Mako-Soaked Kintsugi Bathed in Brutal Daylight.

    Summary

    Cloud Strife is a part of a very small percentage of people that live on Gaia with Intramind Deity Association (IDA for short), a kind of phenomenon where a human creates a mental and physical bond with a fantastical creature. But because people with IDA are so rare on the planet, many countries found ways to use them for their own purposes and so did Shinra IDA Academy, a special military-styled college that gathers humans with IDA from all around the world.
    Thanks to his strong bond with a tiny blood pixie he named "Dada", Cloud managed to enroll in this prestigious college along with his childhood friends, Zack Fair and Tifa Lockhart, but on the day of the enrollment celebration, the trio is attacked by the group of thugs.
    And even though they hold up well against the attackers, everything is finally settled once a mysterious, silver-haired man swoops in and makes thugs run in fear. Cloud is immediately mesmerized by his hero's strength and ethereal beauty... only to find out his savior also attends the same college.

    Summary

    Cela aurait pu être sanglant, si une chose aussi belle que rare ne s'était pas produite, figeant toute l'assemblée. Et bousculant surtout un pauvre cœur déjà bien fragile. Cloud riait.

    Reprendre une vie paisible n'est pas chose aisée lorsque l'on a connu pour seule réalité, la violence, le sang, la guerre et la mort.
    Alors aimer... C'est vraiment beaucoup demander.

    Summary

    “Promise, you'll come and save me.”
    Cloud tipped his head to one side and frowned. He looked so cute, it was all Tifa could do not to grab hold of him and beg him to stay. She didn't want to lose him, but a good friend supported their friend's dream, and if Cloud wanted to be a soldier then she'd encourage him and hope he found whatever happiness he was looking for. But, she couldn't just let him go without the hope she'd see him again. That, one day, he'd come back to her.

    Years after the incident in Nibelheim, that was just the start of Tifa's nightmare, not the end, she finally found a light at the end of the long, dark tunnel, when Cloud Strife appeared in Seventh Heaven. Gaunt and frail, she'd almost not believed her eyes, but it was him; come to save her at last.

    Who knew what a task that'd be? Secrets and lies wrap Tifa in a web of confusion and doubt. The one truth in her life is Cloud, but even he has his demons to slay. Reunited, Cloud, Tifa and their friends each have trials to overcome if they're to get their happy ending.

    The Promise continues the story begun in The Wish, but will it conclude here? Only the hand of fate knows.

    Summary

    Sephiroth Crescent studied himself in the mirror, and his stark reflection regarded him back. He had tugged his hair up into a high ponytail, and it pulled his long, silver locks out of his face, exposing his sharp jawline. He thought the change might detract attention away from his shoulders, which had only become wider and more muscular over summer break.
    He didn’t want to look big and intimidating, not now, not ever. He was going for approachable and friendly, something he had never quite managed before. Not with his serious, sharp face, his long nose, and his significant stature and broad chest and shoulders.
    But desperate times called for desperate measures.
    It was a new school semester, and he was going to win Cloud Strife’s heart.

    ---

    An overly dramatically, blatantly OOC and gratuitous self-indulgent Sefikura fic just chock full of confusing emotions, and feel like everything is going to either save or ruin your life forever.

    Summary

    The story of FF7 if Zack lived.

    Shortly after being ambushed outside of Midgar, Zack and Cloud were separated: Zack remained under Turk care, while Cloud - confused from mako poisoning - went missing somewhere on the streets of Midgar. Now Zack has to somehow find his best friend before Shinra and Hojo can, not to mention that he has to stay under the radar himself - but with the Turks keeping secrets from him, and with so many reminders of his previous four years of being a lab experiment, staying anonymous is becoming more and more difficult.

    Meanwhile, Cloud has literally stumbled into Tifa's care. Given his mako-enhanced eyes, it doesn't take long for him to be recruited into Avalanche... but it's quickly becoming apparent that he's not the strong, sturdy SOLDIER that he'd like everyone to think. His memories are disjointed and his mind feels foggy, to the point that it becomes difficult to tell what's real and what's not. But Tifa needs him. He made a promise to her after all, and he intends to keep that promise... no matter what it takes.

    Summary

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged… that a single young man in possession of a motorcycle must be in want of a girlfriend.”

    Local gossip confirms that one ex-SOLDIER, not just a rich mercenary but a major heartthrob, has set up shop in Midgar, and the girls of AVALANCHE are so eager to meet him that they host a dance at Seventh Heaven. But for Tifa Lockhart and Aerith Gainsborough, it couldn’t go more wrong.

    When Zack Fair blows up the dance floor with eyes only for a certain flower girl, everyone thinks it’s love at first sight—but the reality is bittersweet.

    Proud and aloof toward everyone he meets, Zack’s friend, Cloud Strife, isn’t the best at expressing himself. His insecurities quickly land him in hot water with his childhood friend, Tifa, now a bewitching barmaid. Sparks fly between the two of them. But while Cloud battles with his feelings, Tifa finds herself riddled with doubts that only increase as the story of his missing past unfolds.

    A classic love story collides with the world of Final Fantasy VII… with a number of twists.

    Summary

    Zack and Cloud have made it to Midgar! Starting up a mercenary business is a little difficult, but not as difficult as dealing with memories of Nibleheim burning and subsequent time of prisoners of Hojo.

    Of course, living in the Midgar Slums when ShinRa’s working on restarting the War with Wutai means that eventually things from on top of the plate boil over and hit the civilians and innocent lives.

    Summary

    La lunga (lunga!) storia di come il mondo sia finito sotto gli occhi impotenti di Cloud e compagni. I cattivi sono più cattivi dei tag che ho messo alla fic, e i buoni sono più smarriti di un Moogle senza pom-pom. Ma mentre la nuova Shinra e la WRO fanno i conti con una mafia di mostruosa crudeltà, Nanaki cerca di vincere l’assedio di Cosmo Canyon e Cloud incontra la sua vecchia generalessa e assassina di Zack, le forze della natura si risvegliano per ribellarsi al cancro che piaga il Lifestream. Attenzione, scene di violenza alquanto grafica, sesso e cattiverie assortite inframezzata da fluff a sorpresa.
