Kind of a ficlet; this grew out of a little imagined scene for a post-Advent Children/Dirge of Cerberus scenario where Reeve and Aeris wind up together. This actually resulted from a long discussion with [personal profile] raaj on how the sequence in which a Cloud/Aeris/Tifa relationship formed up strongly affected the longevity/happiness of the participants.

Anyway; Aeris is alive somehow and doing a bit of work for the WRO, which necessitates meetings with Reeve...

Well, this is still... mostly SFW (depending on your view), but otherwise a bit more setup for the relationship as its going to start playing out. The next chapter may be the one I crawl under something after posting, but for now some amended first chapter, and some additional moments of Wall Market...

sanctum_c: (Default) that was subtle. So... I'm trying something new here. And hoping it will work/I'm not going to regret typing any of this. The concept came form a discussion about a fanfic where Cloud and Aeris slept with each other at some point in the game canon, and how this was handled afterwards felt distinctly off - for both of the characters. So, there was then a discussion of if it was possible to integrate Cloud and Aeris having a sexual relationship into the game canon (which I've been calling 'canon-splicing'), how it would work, when they would have the opportunities, why they're having this kind of relationship and ultimately how they feel about each other.

For this the official timeline has been thoroughly discarded (though I tend to do that as a matter of course as it's really restrictive and feels way too fast), Crisis Core and Before Crisis are being ignored. Each chapter is currently intended to be split between Aeris and Cloud's perspectives; and in this one first Cloud, then Aeris.

And now the time slows down a fair bit, since this turned into more of a novelisation then originally intended (so a good chunk of this will be very familiar given I'm not derailing canon very much just yet. Fair number of changed details though). I've made some changes to the first two chapters, but decided not to post those at the moment as they were just going to make these posts increasingly huge (though I think I could get away with it character-limit wise); but Aeris now longer burns Ifalna's body at the end of chapter 1 and there is a sequence in chapter 2 of how she was inspired to be a fire dancer due to another performer she saw years previously.

[personal profile] raaj told me of some amusing head-canon a while back for Reno; that he learned Wutainese from watching Wutai soap-operas. And this grew out from that idea over numerous conversations, how Reno found the program, and how the other Turks end up getting drawn into the madness. This is ultimately going to be in three sections to canon-splice into both Final Fantasy VII and Advent Children (this is much later). Currently there are some obvious place-holder names in the fic which will be corrected both in the next fic (when Reno learns the correct character names) and if its a reference too far...

This grew out of another conversation with [personal profile] raaj, and a pre-Crisis Core take on Zack and Aeris' relationship, how it started, why it started and how ultimately things were between them. The gist of the idea is that Zack's relationship with Aeris starts as far less then romance and more a cunning ploy to diminish Aeris' anti-Shinra stance, and hopefully peacefully bring her back in their fold. Which is going to read as pretty anti-Zerith for now (and I have no issues with the pairing), but we'll see where it goes. And despite my outright ignoring of Crisis Core, Cissnei is still around, Angeal is likely to show up - and after reading The Fifth Act - even Genesis might put in an appearance (though both of them will lose any Jenova project connections - they will be simply other First Class SOLDIERS)

This also needs a new title as Zack the Spy is terrible, but I have no idea what to call it yet and need some way to reference this...

Finally! After months after the idea was mooted (after some amusing discussion with [personal profile] raaj) here is a short fic about Cid just after Yuffie has returned everything she stole. And I'm not sure on this - I kind of feel it should go on a bit further, but at the same time, it felt a naturally stopping point. Warnings for language for a change, as this *is* Cid afterall.

This... took longer to get back to then it was supposed to. But here is a newly revised chapter 1 (with some changes on the escape from Shinra resulting from discussion with [personal profile] raaj and an expanded ending... which I'm not entirely sure if I should keep) and a finished chapter 2.

Chapter 2 )

WARNING! This fic is intended to parody a specific shipping argument, and Cloud is going to sound like a total jerk in this. This will possibly read as anti-Clerith just to warn you. I'll reiterate at this point that I love the pairing, and this is not reflective of my usual opinions. And like so many ideas it grew out of conversations with [personal profile] raaj (who is in no way responsible for me writing this. This is entirely my fault).

(on a side-note, I have realised I have bascially never written an outright, or even easily implied Cloud/Aeris fic. I should rectify this...)

Finally gotten back to this, mended some odd lines, tightened some dialogue and descriptions and moved things around slightly. I've removed the list of photos for now as I'm tempted to make their descriptions a bit more detailed so they'll go back in later.

I've realised that I have Cloud finding Aeris' ribbon and previously never doing anything with it. Now he hands it to Tifa before it again vanishes from the story. Just really not sure if I should remove it or have it wind up somewhere else. Not sure I'd want it to go to Elmyra given it is blood-stained, but... Hmm. Any suggestions/comments gratefully received!

Resulting from a conversation with [personal profile] raaj came this idea of Avalanche finding a long-forgotten camera that Aeris had used to document her travels between Costa del Sol and the Temple of the Ancients. I wound up specifying forty-eight pictures that Aeris had taken, and I really wish I could draw to illustrate this.
