"Heh, no, Shinra didn't corrupt me," a cocky tone announced, words muttered out of one corner of the speakers mouth, as a cigarette butt occupied the other half. "They hired me because I was already corrupt."
"Humpf." A prissy, rather delicate tone returned. "You don't follow orders, you show up for work drunk, you smoke in the building, I don't see why Shin-Ra would want you in the first place."
That statement resulted in a rather wry smile, as a pair of icy blue eyes gazed across the table to the blonde female, staring though a few stray strands of fire red hair. "They don't want me, they need me. I'm just that damned good."
A slight cough was heard, it sounded like someone was trying to smother a laugh. Those blue eyes quickly shot to the towering form beside him. "Shut the hell, up, Rude!" the red head snapped. The dark skinned male quickly regained control of himself, pressing those dark glasses further upon his nose, giving a slight nod to show it would not happe
Family--A CloudTifa Love StoryFamily--A CloudTifa Love Story9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The name of the man I love is Cloud Strife.
He was the only one I had ever thought about; and had been thinking about nearly all of my life.
It happened the night after the geostigma was cured, when he faced his fears, his doubt… his guilt. After Kadaj's gang was defeated, and Sephiroth's legacy was left to remain in the past, as a memory, he was set free of his tainted conscience.
That day, in the church, all the sick were healed. The deadly pandemic was finally coming to an end… and a glow of happiness floated about in the air. I could feel it. Seeing him in the water pool, being with Denzel… it warmed my heart. To see him, being with the children…our children. Or so I wished they were.
Alas, if they were only our children. How badly I wanted them to be ours, how badly I wanted us to be a real family, and not just the broken crowd we were. But for then, it was just enough to see him be with them, to laugh, and smile along with them.
I couldn't help myself but smile, as I looked aroun
Random Reno x Yazoo :3"G..get away from me!" the long silverhaired teen squeaked at a figure dressed in black pants and white blouse. He had flaming red hair that was at least 3 times longer at the back than the ones on the front. Yazoo was trapped under the truck that had been flown on top of him when the Bahamut blasted the blue energy bomb at the monument.Random Reno x Yazoo :39 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The red haired teen just looked down at Yazoo. He had a sort of a grin not-so-well-y hidden on his face. Yazoo fearfully watched the teen as he kneeled down in front of him, his hand reaching out for his face. All Yazoo could do when the teen stroke his cheek was wincing and whimpering until he brushed aside his fear and noticed the gentle warmth throughout the hand. Yazoo saw the teen smiling when he opened his eyes in comfort and was eased by the kindness in the teen's eyes. Before he had noticed, the teen was already putting all of his efforts to move the truck off of him.
Once he was out, the teen quickly grabbed his arm and pulled him in, forcing
Reno fan-fic part1I felt sweat begin to run down my forehead as the bell rang. Great. I was going to be late for French class for the 6th time in a row. Mr.Pedetri wasnt going to be pleased with me. Not that I really cared, only it was necessary for me to get a proper mark in French in order to pass gr9. And so far it didnt look like it was going to happen.

White Carnations 1) ElenaWhite Carnations9 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Elena was shot in the head when an undercover mission went wrong; Reno was the one who carried her body out of the wreckage of a burning building, and washed the blood from her face.
He laid a white carnation on her grave at the funeral, next to the lily from Tseng. The captain of the Turks cleared his throat as if he was going to say something, but he never did, just shook his head and left without a word. That night the Turks got so drunk none of them could find the way home, and ended up sleeping in Rude's car.
Reno put another flower on her grave the next week, and another the next week, and the week after that.
Reno died in the middle of a crowded street, stabbed in the throat by the older brother of a man the Turks had killed years ago. He died with the satisfaction of feeling the man's skull cave in beneath his nightstick before the red-haired Turk choked on his own blood.
His grave was near Elena's. Rude and Tseng stood side by side, the only

"Why is Uncle Vincent so sad?"
"Well ..." Cloud started, "because he lost someone very dear to him long time ago; and this time of the year is the worst for him."
"But I never saw him smile."
"He believes, for him that is, that there is nothing in this world to smile about."
"I want to do something for him."
Vincent was in his room and he heard footsteps, but ignored them. Then they stopped right outside his door, something was slipped underneath, the footsteps started up again and soon disappeared. He walked to the door and picked up the envelope. Vincent picked it up, opened the envelope and pulled out a little red heart. He was puzzled as he read what is said.
"To Vincent .... Love you"
What in the world?
Cloud watched Vincent as he came in and went straight up the stairs and to his room.
"What is it Cloud?"
"I don't know Tifa, Vincent looks ... I can't describe it, be he seems different."

Demyx was happy, which was a good thing since a unhappy Demyx, caused millions of munny in water damage. He skipped down the hall humming a little tune and twirling around. The reason Demyx was so happy was because nothing had tried to eat, maul, or maimed him horribly on this mission. And he had not failed, he hugged his completed and overly detailed report to his chest.
In his happiness he failed to notice a door creak open and a pair of glowing eyes peer from the darkness, they flashed as Demyx walked past the door, two arms shot out. Demyx only had a chance to let loose one scream before he was tugged in to the room. The report that he had spent so much time on fluttered forgotten to the floor.
Xemnas and Saix were going on a lovely stroll down one of the many halls of the castle, having a light conversation about heartless, nobodies, kingdom hearts and hair care products and whatever else maniac villains talked about. While walking

Cakes and Boy-bands
The fruitcake sits idly on the kitchen table, its sticky gloss gleaming under the fuzzy lighting of the ceiling lamp. It's not that Reno doesn't like cake--he likes cake as much as the average person celebrating surviving for another year--but he really doesn't like fruitcake. In fact, he can go so far as to screaming proudly on the rooftops that he fucking hates fruitcake. So why is there one sitting wrapped in cellophane topped with an obnoxious red bow?
Because Axel likes to piss him off, oh, does he ever. It's like a sport that often ends in name-calling and bloody noses. This time he does it with another terrible birthday gift just to top last year's CD of some dying boy-band dating back to the 90s. Reno doesn't even know who the fuck the guys were.
"I made it, y'know," Axel says with a grin.
Reno lifts his eyes and wonders just how much it would hurt Axel to shove the brick of pastry up his ass. "Y

Um where to?
Its for you. With that, Reno turned and left, leaving the blond puzzled with a strange package in his lap. Cloud ripped off the paper and opened the plain box underneath. Inside where about two dozen bracelets in different color and a single piece of paper, that had been obviously ripped off another bigger piece.
Directions: Wear one everyday
Cloud turned the paper over, but that was it. So, Reno wanted him to wear bracelets? The blond eyed the plastic rings, but they seemed harmless. Whatever, the blond thought to himself before tossing the box onto his desk. All he wanted now

But I visit them in my dreams with every chance I get.
It seems everyone else Ive come to love

So it makes sense to leave my heart in the hands of a person who
Couldnt possibly break it, to be in a relationship
In which Id never have to truly commit.
They are there for you when others are not.
They help you forget those stupid lies youd bought.
Its so easy to fall in love when you dont have to fear rejection.
You never have to work to get their affection.
They replenish your hope when youre left with none.
They are there for you to love when you have no one.
They fill your desires in ways real men cannot,
They help convince you that perhaps it
Wouldnt hurt too much to give love another shot.
Unlike the guys I know, they never judge.
When you prove disloyal they never hold

Love Letter to No OneSo many nights, so many hours. Nights that lasted forever. Nights that tore into me and ripped out what little hope was left. I used to often sit alone on those nights pouring my heart out in a love letter to no one. Paragraph upon paragraph of useless words, tear stains on the paper, all in vain. Each letter was burnt and cast off to the winds. Perhaps off to find a hopeless dreamer such as myself.Love Letter to No One13 years ago in General More Like This

"It's not you I'm mad at Bella. I'm mad at those...those dogs for hurting you like this." He turned to me and for the first time in a couple of days I noticed his eyes were almost black.

The moon reflected off of her radiant skin, the seeping light almost seeming hollow. Her wearisome footsteps came to a halt. Breathing only made the agonizing silence louder. Echoing through the deserted tunnels in her mind. How she wished she could crawl into the silence and never return, to cease to exist. She felt his familiar touch on her shoulder and didn't want to turn around. Didn't want to feed her mind another image of his face to haunt her with. The silky breeze caressed the strands of her hair as he said her name. Her name had never sounded so perfect. The rhythm of his voice flowing lightly from his lips, the lips she had known more intimately than anything else in this world. She wanted to keep walking as she felt the stinging tears in her eyes. Why was he doing this to her? Wasn't one goodbye enough? The goodbye? Goodbye. That word had never as much to her as it did on this night.

Never in our whole relationship had there been an uncomfortable silence between us. From the moment we spoke at school, to the first time we went out in public together..
all the way to the times when words were not needed to express our feelings. one look from you will always be worth a thousand words.
Now I realise, looks can also kill..
It started off innocently enough, as all friendships do. I never thought anything of it at the time, everything seemed so new. Making so many friends, who was to think this would be anything different?
This would be something magical.
We enjoyed each others company, perhaps a little too much to be innocent.. but still all the signs were ignored, kept away in the secret corner of our hearts, the thoughts much too unthinkable and private to speak.
But actions speak louder than words and soon enough, talking on the phone became an everyday thing and the hugs were ever more constant. I guess I liked how it felt being held in your arms, so safe and protec
