    Summary

    AU. Cloud Strife’s life has become defined by tragedies, failures, and missed opportunities that drifted through his fingers and floated away with the carry of the wind. Now, following the tragic and unexpected deaths of his best friends, Cloud finds himself suddenly raising their child, failing at even that and finding himself reeling from the inadequacy and anger that has been living within him for the last decade. And it all started when he was ripped away from the girl he had fallen hopelessly in love with, a long, long time ago, listening to her pour her love out for him against the keys of a piano.

    Circumstance has given them the opportunity to reunite, but Cloud isn’t sure he can lower the bleak borders around his heart to let her back in.

    She was supposed to teach his son how to play the piano. Instead, she taught him how to love again.

    Summary

    In the past, there was a doctor and his husband who cared for the children they took in very much. When the doctor goes mad from a plague going around however, he can't bear to lose his family and turns everyone he cares about into automatons one after another with plans to have his eldest child turn him into one after he was sure his family was safe. In his last moment of clarity, knowing that anyone who saw his loved ones would consider them monsters, he locks them away in a secret room in his basement with their music boxes that keep them asleep for over 100 years.

    Now, in modern day, a group of college students rent out the old mansion for a price that was too good to be true. When they finally find out what the catch is on the price, they're already stuck in a one year lease and too broke to try finding somewhere else to stay. Some people have skeletons in their closet but how will this group handle finding living dolls in their basement?

    Summary

    There's a shift in the universe Zack's not aware of. Running from death and kicking ass, all he can do is get Cloud as far away from Nibelheim and Hojo as he can. Hopefully running right back to the heart of Shinra doesn't backfire on him. He got Cloud into this mess to begin with, he better be able to get him out of it.

    Zack is alive, spoilers for remake, loosely canon and I mean loosely. Fix it Fic. Starts at end of Crisis Core. Or the end of the remake? What is this nonsense. Also loosely canon CC.

    Summary

    Cloud blinked awake; the light was different and his head felt more fuzzy than pained. The agony lessened and his torso felt newly constricted. “-splinted the leg and his bad arm. Bandages and stitching will help with the bleeding.” Aeris broke off and met his gaze. “Welcome back. SOLDIERs heal fast, right?” Cloud tried to respond, the effort sending splintering pains along his jaw. “Sorry. Jaw swollen. Might be broken. Um. How about blink once for yes, twice for no? Can you hear us?”


    Cloud leaves Midgar feeling indestructible; getting distracted in the field soon belies that.

    Summary

    Tifa wasn’t particularly known for her “perceptiveness.” Rather the opposite if she was being honest with herself. Oblivious was the word her own companions used against her. However, one young lady in particular came in frequent enough that even Tifa was able to pick up on her schedule. Every other Thursday morning at 10. Black Coffee with banana bread. And once a month, she adds half-and-half to the cup.

    After all, Tifa wasn’t that oblivious to a regular.

    aka.

    It's a dumb coffee shop thing no one asked for.

    Summary

    If this were a different story, Zack thinks, he would be using his last moments to remember kind, green eyes and a sweet smile. He would be staring out into the raining sky, life running out of him, while making peace with the fact that he would never see his first love again. If this were a different story, Zack would not be left empty-handed, crying out as his friend stumbles away into the remnants of a battlefield. He would not be praying for that blond head to turn, aching to capture the final sight of a cherished face before locking it behind two lids.

    No, this does not feel like a fitting end to this story at all―and Zack overflows with the one childish thought that this is unbearably unfair. In the rare moments that he, as any soldier must, contemplated his death, he never imagined that he would die alone.

    Summary

    Cloud Strife was a lone wolf: he’d been born alone, lived alone, and would die alone. 

    Cloud Strife didn’t need anyone.

    Cloud Strife certainly, and most positively, didn’t need a soulmate. 

    In which a very bitter and jaded Cloud Strife finds himself back in Midgar five years after joining the Turks. A rouge assassin with a stray bullet pulls an unrequited love back into the fold.

    Why is it that the only thing that makes Cloud feel whole is touching the man who broke his heart so many years ago?
