Summary: Cloud and Sephiroth make plans at the end of the world.
Pairing: Just friendship (for now?)
"I'm not going back." Sephiroth said, his low voice the only sound in the empty space around him.
"We have to," Cloud replied, sighing as he watched the man's back. "You know that."
"It never changes," Sephiroth's voice was dull and listless—almost dead. "No matter now many times we play this same game."
"We have to keep trying," Cloud whispered. "We'll get it right eventually."
"I will never be strong enough," Sephiroth replied with a shake of his head. "And neither will you."
"It always changes, though," Cloud argued. "At least in little ways. Who knows, eventually one of those little ways has to change things for the better. It was closer last time, with the two of us closer to the same age..."
"I'm tired," Sephiroth replied blankly.
Ugly Truths Chapter 5See description for Author's NoteUgly Truths Chapter 5 by ~Boomchick
Over the course of the night, Cloud ignored three calls from Reeve and one from Tseng. They left messages. Cloud didn't check them. Eventually he would talk to Reeve and explain what he'd done—he was well aware that he'd probably be competing with the story Tseng had already told him, and was quietly dreading having to negate the well-spoken Turk's argument. As much as he believed in what he was doing, he had none of the skill with words that Tseng did. He could only hope Reeve's history with him would give him a little advantage when he called him back. But he couldn't worry about that yet. He was still busy.
He stared down at the blank page in front of him, willing himself to think clearly. He needed rules, and he needed them written down. He doubted it would change the behavior of the monsters down the hall, but it would help him keep his head. He was much less likely to kill them prematurely if he had a strict list of things

Character: Lonely Security Guard
A/N: I don't know what happened.
I never got a big, fancy, superhero name. They reserve those for the big guys. The ones who run around blowing things up.
I'm more the sort of fella who cleans up the little messes. If I get noticed at all, the most folks ever call me is 'The Janitor.' I'm alright with that. It's accurate enough.
I only got one superpower, and that's knowing what's needed. I don't give pushes—just little nudges now and then.
It was all pretty dull when I was younger. Putting the things my mom had lost where she could find 'em, makin' sure the kid in the hallway bumped into me instead of the guy next to him who'da beaten him into a pulp—simple things. Little things. Making the world just a smidge better than it could have been.
Wasn't until I was a teenager that I realized I could do more—do better. Lookin' back at the things I did in those days, i'm surpr
What Runs Deep Chapter 3What Runs Deep Chapter 3 by ~Boomchick
Cloud found himself quickly immersed in an exciting, bewildering world made up of Soldier-candidate training, unusual companionship, and stolen moments.
During the days, he exhausted himself in training. The workouts were so grueling that he took to waiting until after they were done to eat so he wouldn't throw up as much. Still, he was amazed to find that though the exercises didn't get any easier, he was far from the least athletic person there. The knowledge didn't always help his self-worth issues. He still often left practice disheartened and unsure.
“Maybe I'm not cut out for this,” he muttered to his long-time friend and new mentor.
“No one's cut out for this, Spike,' Zack laughed. “That's what the mako's for!”
Extra lessons with Zack were almost as bad as the required morning workouts. In some ways, they were worse. Most First Class Soldiers couldn't keep up with Zack Fair. Attempting to keep up with him at Cloud's level was an exe
