Title: The Frog Prince Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: CloudxAerith Prompt: 081: How? Word Count: 850 Rating: G Summary: He often had to remind himself that she'd lived her life trapped within Midgar Author's Notes: I find it funny that I am usually more of a CloudxTifa fan, but while all of those stories are usually bittersweet bordering on angst, this is one actually quite cheerful bordering on fluff :D
Title: Sunny Road Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: CloudxTifa Prompt: 028: Children/065: Hope Word Count: 1331 Rating: PG Summary: He wanted more than anything for her to finally cry. Author's Notes: Inspired by Pied Flycatcher's story, Fragility, on ff.net...this is actually a topic I thought of quite awhile ago, but after reading her story I finally figured out how to tell this one :) Not entirely happy, but how much of what I write is?
Title: Breaking the Silence Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: Cloud, Tseng Prompt: 054: Air Word Count: 2854 Rating: PG-13 Summary: They would not try to comfort each other, and had perhaps found the one other person who could understand why they carried the guilt they did. Author's Notes: I think I took some liberties here. Minor spoilers for pretty much the whole compilation...I stayed away from the central plots of Before Crisis and Crisis Core, but drew on some of the character histories, particularly where Zack and Aerith's relationship is concerned. I made up a name for Elena's sister since she never gets one, and if anyone can tell me how old Tseng actually is, I'll buy you cookies :) Most of this is just me filling in gaps...if anyone spots anything that contradicts something known to be canon, please let me know :) Pairings referenced in some way: CxT, CxA, TxA, TxE, Tx(Gun Female), ZxA
Title: The Unforgiven Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: Cloud, Tseng Prompt: 022: Enemies Word Count: 1068 Rating: PG Summary: He wondered that the other man never seemed the type to cry, while trying to ignore the fact that he wasn't either... Author's Notes: Two quick one-shots, one for Tseng, one for Cloud...I drew a lot of references from Last Order for Tseng's, but the story is nothing we don't already know...Brief reference to Before Crisis, which I have never played so I probably screwed the canon up quite a bit... :-\ A bit of a prologue to the dialogue from the next story XD And apologies for the Meredith Grey-esque narrative for Cloud's!
I can't believe I'm taking on another one of these, but since I honestly have nothing better to do with my time these days, and I need a good reason to start writing CloudxTifa again, I'm taking them on at otp_100 :)
Title: Scratch Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: CloudxTifa Prompt: 024: Family Word Count: 782 Rating: PG Summary: Her eyes are crying for a friendship she will never regain. Author's Notes: Without spoiling the whole story, this is just a take on thefamily! angst I haven't really seen anywhere, possibly because nobody wants to ever say 'better [that person] than you,' but sometimes, no matter how guilty you feel for thinking that, it's true.
Title: The Mask and Mirror Full Circle Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: Tseng (one-sided TsengxAerith) Prompt: 003: Ends Word Count: 1147 Rating: Hard PG-13 (mentions of torture, dark themes) Summary: He grasped the wisps as a man trying to grab death itself and pull it back. Author's Notes: [Teeny tiny spoilers for Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus] This is actually a song-fic, in a sense. It's based on the song "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" by Colin Hay...but while the song is a beautiful, sad, love song...this...is a bit more twisted. When listening to the song it actually inspired me to write a Tifa/Aerith fic that fit more with the theme of the song, but when I sat down to write it Tseng came to mind instead, and he took it to a rather dark place. I would love feedback, since I'm still not wholly satisfied with the ending...any suggestions would be great :)
Title: Nowhere Warm Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Characters: Cloud, Aerith Prompt: 084: He Word Count: 746 Rating: PG Summary: Had she known? [In-game, City of the Ancients, Cloud's POV] Author's Notes: Spoilers for the City of the Ancients, if anyone still needs a spoiler warning for this fandom :) This is a companion piece to Like A Star, which is the same scene from the game, only from Tifa's viewpoint...I never intended to write another one, but my screensaver is comprised of various FF images, and the shot of her and Cloud in the water just struck me a few nights ago, so...here it is. Also, Crisis Core Easter Egg...though not necessary for understanding this, and no spoilers... <3
I cannot honestly remember who or when or even if this happened, but I feel like at one point someone suggested to me that I write VincentxAerith...so, here are a few little drabbles for that pairing...more angst than anything else, and not quite romance, but...it's something?
