    Summary

    "It’s 2004 and not caring is trendy. You’re only as cool as the lack of a shit you give about anything, or anyone, especially yourself.
    This is the part I play, and I’ve played it well."

    Cloud Strife is sixteen, dealing drugs, and self-medicating on alcohol. And he's fine with well that traveled road.
    Until Reno decides to inject himself into his life, tear up that path, and challenge Cloud every step of the way.
    [Modern High School AU]

    Summary

    It's all over. Geostigma is eradicated, Sephiroth is gone again, and the world is left to slowly heal itself, while Cloud is left with his thoughts. Everything and everyone else seemed like it was beginning to move on, so why does he feel like he is nothing but a broken relic of the past; a past everyone desperately wants to forget. He’d forgotten what it feels like to not be either numb to everything, or mentally writhing in silent torment. What did true laughter feel like -- not just a cock of the lips, or little huffs of comical air -- laughter from deep in one’s stomach? Does it feel good? Does it produce tears of happiness, instead of those bred from agony? He’d heard the corny line “time heals all wounds” enough times by now, to know time passing was not going to fix him.

    If he reached for the light, it burned him; if he turned his back on it, he’d drown in dark uncertainty. Dark, cold, alone, afraid. These were the only words that could be used to describe his reality. But what if his slate could be wiped clean? What if, in another timeline, Cloud Strife had never existed? The only question is, will he be able to push aside his pain, and try to embrace the happy life he should have had?

    Summary

    Cloud always thought that he and Zack had been close. Closer than friends were supposed to be. And he'd always thought it had been mutual. One day he just stumbles across a piece of information that makes him re-evaluate all that he thought he knew.

     

    This is set in a post Advent Day setting, and somehow Zack lived. Nibelheim happened, but whatever happened in the labs wasn't overly traumatising.

    TW: Contains angst and a pretty heavily depressed Cloud. I wouldn't categorise this as an uplifting piece. An informative piece on queer relationships at best.

    Summary

    Post Meteorfall, and every crisis that came after that, Cloud gets through every day on routine. He survives, but it's wearing him down. The weight of everything he has done, seen, everyone he has lost... it's just so tiring.

    Cloud learns to cope slowly, through the support of his friends. He must confront some truths, and maybe realise he has been pretty damn hard on himself. But he feels a bit better when he finds a familiar man in his bed at night, and it feels a bit easier to wake up and take on the next day when he's slept comfortably in the embrace of someone he loved and lost, even if he's not really sure what's happening or why this is possible. But Cloud has seen enough shit to know when to not question a good thing.

    Summary

    What to do when the damage is too great for Your Champion and his allies to repair?

    Send as much knowledge as you can to your younger self so She can make enough ripples along the river of time for your Champion to succeed this time. And take the opportunity You missed Before to create a strong connection to him instead of disregard him as like the others. Seriously, how is he so unassuming that even a Goddess fell for it when he's a Storm?

    A take on the classic Time Travel Fix It trope I don't think anyone else has done. MINERVA went back.

    Summary

    "Genesis casts without thinking, without considering how he shouldn’t be able to reach them at this distance, not for another few precious seconds. Sleep! he begs, his insides tearing apart with the effort. No more! Just go to SLEEP!"

    Or: Cloud is ready to sacrifice himself to save everyone he loves. Luckily for him, they love him back just as fiercely.

    Summary

    In the days before the plate drops on Sector 7, the Turks are tasked with capturing Aerith so that there is no chance of her being harmed. It seems, though, that this time it's not as simple as fighting them off for the time being. Instead, they reach an agreement. Cloud gives himself up for Aerith's freedom. He walks right back into Hojo's lab, not as a SOLDIER, but as a specimen.

    Cloud can't escape, not if it means the Turks go after Aerith again. It's not as if he's capable of getting out by himself. The only way out is getting rescued by the others. And that will have to wait until after Avalanche secures Sector 7's safety. Whatever is waiting for him, he'll have to face it alone.
