Save the Hero
Inspired by Keichama's artwork
It wasn't like Lightning to give up any other battle, any other day, and any other moment she would've gotten back up. But even she had forgotten, every person l'Cie or not, has their limits. Eventually their spirit would erode, their willpower would fade, and their body would just give up. She, minutes before this very moment thought herself above such a notion. Everybody else may falter they may give up hope, they may get angry, and they may want to quit but she never would.
Not until now, where she lay on the ground, ears ringing and mind slowing down to a pace that she would compare to Snow's normal wit. Her body throbbed with pain, but it never passed to the point of agony. Something she slowly realized her nerves were shot, to the point where they couldn't even be bothered to let her feel adequate pain for the situation.
Some ugly-son-of-a-bitch Ceith had just blown her and her tea

"I'm ok" He said and climbed the stairs, hearing Marlene and Denzel laughing at some random TV show and pushing each other around. His lips curled up slightly in a small smile as he shook his head: he liked it here, it was peaceful, at least while the two kids were in school and Tifa was at the bar working. His job was going pretty well too, it provided him with enough gil to help Tifa with the essentials, buy the children a toy or two and still allow him afford a couple of things for his bike and himself. However, he was never at ease in his room, there was a constant presence there, lurking around the lifeless place, making the piece chilly and giving it a dark aura. Denzel once told him he was paranoid, and that he actually liked Cloud's room, even when it was most of the time messy; the younger boy often slept with Cloud, snuggling c

Cloud was having a nightmare in the middle of the night, when suddenly, Tifa went to his room to see what was wrong with him.
Cloud was fighting in his sleep and Tifa does her best to wake him, but as much as she tried she couldn't. The dream was too deep and the more he struggled, the more intense the nightmare became. The dream was tormenting him and he growled in anguish as his breathing became increasingly agitated.
It is said that when a dream is too intense, it's better to let the person who is dreaming to wake up slowly, otherwise the dreamer will not be able to distinguish reality and could cause a severe trauma.
Tifa felt helpless for not being able to help and stayed with him until he could calm down. Cloud on the other hand, was still fighting in his sleep and Tifa tried to reassure him stroking his face with her hands.
"It's okay... Everything will be all right... I promise." She whispered softly.
Little by little, Cloud's breathing began to calm down slowly. Tifa wiped the

Inside the Mechanical Castle, Alphonse was guided by Professor Huskisson, who was leading him through the halls toward his latest creation for war. Alphonse then asked, "So, uh, Professor, what is this invention you've created?" Huskisson replied, "Hmm? Asking questions in such a polite manner? And here, I thought you'd be an angry little boy with a short temper." Alphonse replied, "You'd be surprised."
Huskisson then explained, "Well, since you've come for my little project, I might as well tell you. It's not a simple weapon...it's a revolution of technology! My brilliance and hard work have finally paid off, for I may have created the ultimate weapon, its power is more than anyone can hold within a simple hand grenade. Its power can even topple a tank, no, two hundred men, NO, two THOUSAND men, NO-NO-NO, an entire city!"
Alphonse tapped the professor on the shoulder, "Are you alright Professor?" Huskisson snapped out of his delusions and replied, "Oh,

Chapter 15: The Lion's Den
A few miles at sea, there was an island made entirely out of steel. Hence the name, Mechanical Castle, a paradise for inventors, as well as the stronghold of a famous scientist named Huskisson, who specializes in Nuclear Power. His research and notes have been very profitable through the military, even when his research involves war...
Traveling by a large ship, Alphonse Elric was heading toward Mechanical Castle for business. He and Edward were actually ordered by Mustang to deliver a message to the scientist about his recent creation. A few days ago, Huskisson delivered a message to the military, telling them that he has just finished his "greatest invention". He reported that his invention will revolutionize the world of alchemy and prove that science can also benefit mankind just as much as alchemy could.
Alphonse felt impressed by the island's steel-plated form, but he couldn't help but feel worried about Ed, who told Al to go instead of him. Alphonse wa

That morning, I got up very early and took a quick shower to start fresh the day.
As usual, I went to the children's room to wake them up and then headed to the kitchen to make some breakfast.
After the breakfast, I put the dishes in the sink and went upstairs to help the children to get ready for school. Denzel was old enough to prepare himself for school, so I helped Marlene instead.
After I said goodbye to the children, I headed back inside to start to do the housework.
It was a lovely day in Seventh Heaven and for some reason I was in a very good mood, so I took the day off and went to make a few errands before opening the bar.
It was almost time to open the bar, so I speeded up on Fenrir to get there on time. I was so eager to see their faces when they realized that I was back. I specially wanted to surprise Tifa, but I knew I had to be cautious, so I stopped a few blocks away and pushed Fenrir all the way to the bar.

The city was the gem of Cocoon, a tourist trap in a calm world. Of course, given its resort-like environment, it's also a great vacation spot. But the real kicker was what was called 'the Wishing Night' a.k.a. the fireworks festival. At a certain night every year, a large dome would be placed near the beach, and when night fell, the fireworks started in a spectacular display of beauty and elegance. This would continue for the remainder of the night, until the sunrise the following morning.
A certain story somehow got started at this event. They said that the fireworks could grant wishes, once a year. That was what many people believe, some do some don't, but a great majority of them do.

He passed a few stalls selling fruit and incense. The sale men's smiled at him, waved and wanted him to buy off them. He walked to one sale man who looks to be nice. He was given an apple.

Cornello rushes into the altar, and makes for the door out. As he pushed it open, outside, waiting for him, was an angry mob of townspeople! Almost every person who lived in Lior was there, with pitchforks, bats, and angry faces, but it wasn't just the townspeople, some of the followers were confused about Cornello's words.
"So all those miracles were lies?"
"We believed in you, how could you?"
"You made fools of us for the last time!"
"Father...is this true?"
"I don't understand father, what's going on?"
"It was alchemy all along, why Father Cornello, Why?"
Cornello was frozen in fear, his tricks were revealed, and everyone was against him. He couldn't explain himself, so he decided to go with a different explanation, "My children, do not believe the words of the non-believer! He has used his science to impersonate me as a conspiracy by the devil himself! But witness as Leto redeems me with this vengeful light! BEHOLD, GOD'S POWER!"

I could hardly move.
Pain was everywhere, every muscle, every vein, I couldn't even think.
I was dying.
He was killing me.
It was a pool of blood I was lying in, my own blood, still flowing from the deep cuts in my arms, chest, back, legs, everywhere.
I could only look up at the dark, grey sky, and try to ignore the pain, the fear, the unstoppable trembling that tried to run over me.
I failed, there was no one left to save the world.
Sephiroth walked around me, careful not to touch my blood.
'It is over, Cloud' he said in his deep, low voice.
I coughed up blood.
Sephiroth kneeled down on a rock on the edge of the pool and pulled his glove off.
His hand reached for my face and wiped the red liquid off my cheek.
I closed my eyes, trying to shut him out, keep him away from me.
But I knew I couldn't.

The soldier passed through crowds of joyful families, reuniting and sharing pleasant chatter. The soldier smiled, enjoying his walk past the happy folk, wishing that he had times like that to spend with his loved ones, but he wasn't here to play, he was here to speak with someone.

Like the rest of Spira, I knew nothing about this place called Gagazet. What I did know, however, is that this was where Kimarhi used to live, and where his tribe is. The Ronso tribe, from what I knew of them (and it was very little, as you know), were intimidating wolf-like creatures that stood on two legs. These guys were huge, bigger than Kimarhi even, but I didn't care, one got in my face, I'd fight back. I can be tenacious when I have to.
Anyway, as we continued the pilgrimage to Zanarkand, which happened to be on the other side of the mountain, we had to get past a number of Ronso barring our path. I expected to have to fight them, like the rest of the Yevonites we had come across since Macalania.

She knew she had to get her test done, to receive yet another "Outstanding" in her O.W.L., but her eyes were firmly fixed on Snape. She stared at him admiringly until he finally noticed her oogling at him.
He raised an eyebrow at her, making her blush and quickly look back at her paper. She hadn't started on it yet. She quickly scribbled her answers on it; It was done in less than a minute, but, nevertheless, each of her answers were correct. She knew it. They had to be. They just HAD to be.
As time passed by, Hermione noticed that everyone else was still working on their O.W.L. test. She decided to spend her free-time looking at Snape when he wasn't looking at her. But, for some reason, everytime she tried to look at him, he noticed, and that just made her quickly look back to her paper, pretending to scribble more answers onto it.
