    Summary

    Family relationships in FFVII are always strained. If your dad doesn't want to turn you into a living weapon, your mom is an alien, or everyone died in tragic circumstances for which you blame yourself.

    The hidden stories of FFVII from pre-canon to post-canon, that attempts to make some of the more sprawling aspects of the FFVII universe make sense (e.g. Where the hell did Cissnei go after Crisis Core? Cloud's Dad – MIA, dead or an alien from the Planet Zog? How did Zack and Angeal first meet? AWOL Turks of Before Crisis, where are you? And Kunsel. Just ... Kunsel as a whole. Who is he, where did he go, how the hell did he know so much and why didn't he become a super-villain because of it? Kunsel vexes me greatly).

    Give it a chance to make sense and it will.

    Summary

    Before Sora was born, others fought the Heartless. Before Riku fell, others were infected by the Darkness. Before Kairi lost her memories, she had a family.

    Before those three met on Destiny Islands, another trio shaped the fate of all worlds.

    Zack, Cloud & Aerith loved each other very much.

    But even the greatest love stories can become tragedies in a heartbeat.

    Summary

    Following the events of Before Crisis, Rufus has been under house arrest within the Turks Secret Headquarters for four years. Even the President doesn't know the exact location of Rufus' whereabouts and with the clock ticking on a kill order the President executed, Rufus requests to meet with Tseng one-on-one to share the intelligence he has retrieved regarding Veld's whereabouts. Tseng makes the decision to indulge Rufus' request.

    The only thing is, Tseng wasn't expecting Rufus to provide him with a secondary contract unrelated to the matter at hand.
    (tl;dr - Rufus has decided he wants to sleep with Tseng and takes the most inopportune moment to share that decision with Tseng)
