Chapter 1: Crystal
At the edge of the calming waters surrounding a castle that glistened in the sunlight, a blond boy stood in deep contemplation. He lifted his hand up to meet his gaze, looking at the item held in it questionably. It was a pale blue crystal that shone delicately as he moved it in the palm of his hand. Sighing, he shoved it into his pocket and continued to look over the waters.
Garnet Til Alexandros sat at the window of her bedroom, watching over him from a distance. It had been two months since his miraculous return to Alexandria during the play of her seventeenth birthday. She had longed to see him for the entire time that they were apar

Hey there, Dagger! Eiko bounced cheerfully up to the queen as she found her on the balcony. Garnet didn't mind Eiko calling her by that name, since it was the first name she knew her as.
Hi, Eiko, she greeted quietly, looking briefly at her, and then over at the town again.
I take it there's still no sign of him then? Eiko asked sadly, It's been nearly two weeks, hasn't it? Garnet nodded, sighing.
We asked the moogles to search wherever they could, and I asked Uncle Cid and everyone I could think of if they had seen him, but it feels like nothing has happened. Eiko spun around as she heard a thud. Kain had tried to run towards her to greet her, but fell over in the process. The girl laughed and helped him up as he straightened his hat.
You're too much like Vivi, y'know that? She said, grinning. Kain laughed n

They were found near Lindblum, too? Garnet said, not sure whether to be surprised or not, since she'd expected such a thing to happen soon anyway.
Yes, one of the black mages found some just outside of the city, Beatrix reported. She walked up closer to her and said quietly, What shall we do?
Garnet contemplated her options for a brief moment, then nodded her head slowly.
It would be silly to move everyone again, She said. Especially since there would be far more people to relocate. Beatrix, please send a small group of soldiers to destroy any crystals that grow. I can't think of another way around this problem other than to stop them from growing around the city. Beatrix saluted and headed off to organise the Queen's plan. Seconds later, a head poked around the door, grinning at Garnet.
Come on in, Eiko, She said, smiling

Is everybody on board? Regent Cid called over to the pilots, who promptly confirmed that no one would be left behind. Garnet turned to face Cid.
Once again, thank you so much for this, Uncle Cid, she said, bowing to him. Cid smiled gently.
Please, don't worry about it, Garnet. We shall take care of them and ensure they all have a place to stay until it is safe to return to their homes. He took a few steps towards the Hilda Garde 3 then turned to face at Garnet, If you have any troubles, please let me know immediately. You are still far too young to hold such a burden on your shoulders.
Thank you, Uncle Cid. I will. She bowed again, and then looked over to Zidane, who stood next to Kain. He decided to stay with them, since he had always felt more at ease around Vivi's old friends anyway. Garnet walked up to the two of them, glancing ov

Garnet lay on her bed, exhausted, but unable to sleep. She glanced out of the window at the starry sky, then back at the ceiling. Ever since she boarded the airship, she hadn't known what to make of the current situation. So many thoughts were spinning through her head that they couldn't settle into place. She kept thinking back to the cold look in Zidane's eyes when she confronted him, how his irises looked as if they were glazed with ice despite flickering with the heat of the flames nearby. It was clear he'd felt nothing for what had happened.
But when she said she would attack him with Bahamut, his calm, emotionless gaze seemed to falter. Was it that he'd so easily destroy a city full of people, but never want to

"It's okay. We'll find him." He whispered encouragingly. A small boy reached out and tugged on the man's sleeve, eyes full of sadness.
"He's okay, right?" the boy asked cautiously.
"Of course he is, Denzel. He was a strong kid. He will have survived." The woman smiled down at him and ruffled his hair. He grinned back.
"Come on. We should find somewhere to stay around here." The man led his wife and the boy away from the remains of the ShinRa building, taking them through some streets in searching for somewhere to spend the night.

"You tell us we can never be seen, that we have to hide and can't let anyone know we're alive in case they tell on us and yet you've been here all the time, not even telling me she's all right!?" Cloud yelled, walking forward past Marlene quickly so that he was soon holding Reno up against the wall.
"Hey, chill! I did it to protect you!" Reno said.
"You kept it a secret that Cloud was alive?" Tifa gasped.
"I had to! But now he's gone and blown his cover!" Reno shouted. "Now let me go and let's see what Zack will have to say about this!"
"You are so low! What ulterior motive did you have? Did you want Tifa all to yourself?" Cloud growled. Tifa's eyes widened as Reno faltered and then stuttered, looking away.

Opening the door and walking inside, she smiled. This place helped people let go for a while as they drowned their sorrows with some drinks. However, Tifa never allowed herself that privilege as she told herself it wasted supplies for the customers.
"Tifa! You're back!" There was a flash of brown hair and then Tifa was almost knocked off her feet by the young girl that had just appeared and hugged her.
"Hey, Marlene." Tifa grinned, hugging the girl back. Marlene was her friend's daughter and she was looking after her for a while.
"I put all the dishes away carefully and didn't break any of them!" Marlene said proudly, her large brown eyes staring up at Tifa.

Sora used his free hand to wipe sweat from his brow. Riku and him were carrying large pieces of wood to the shore, where the raft was being made. The heat beaming down from the sun was definitely making it worse, and this was one of those times when Sora wished he didn't live on a tropical island.
His mind started to wander to his past adventures again. He imagined the snowy mountains of China where he and his friends met Mushu and Mulan. Just thinking about the cold weather made him feel a little better, but not too much.
Sora? You doing okay over there? Riku inquired, You're not getting tired, are you?
Of course not! Sora didn't want to admit how exhausted he was, I've never felt better!
Riku chuckled. Liar.

Sora looked out of his bedroom window. There was so much going on in his mind at the moment. He was reminiscing about when he saw the storm that one night out of the very same window. His entire life had changed in a split second. He couldn't believe how long ago that had happened. It seemed like only yesterday.
The events of the next morning also drifted around in his thoughts. Even though he had been to so many worlds, Sora had no idea what to expect out in the ocean. Who knew? They could end up finding another island the next day after leaving. It was also a possibility for them to not find another inhabited place for weeks. Whatever the case, he was ready. It was about time he left the monotonous days on the isla

Night had finally fallen; the velvet sea of stars now shown in all their beauty overhead, surrounding the twin moons that cast their soft glow over everything they could touch. However, this natural beauty went unseen by one. They only served as accents, barely noticeable against the true beauty the night now held in his azure eyes. Garnet stood quietly gazing into the vast night sky, leaning slightly and gracefully over the balcony railing. Everything she did looked graceful to him, this vision he loved from the moment he saw her. But how could he ever get her to understand his love for her. Every time he tried she acted like she didn't notice, or shot him down flat... his attempts were clumsy, coming off as a pervert most of the time, so how could he blame her.

Chuckling nervously, the Yondaime took a split second to avoid the medic-nin's face before he looked at her, grinning again to avoid any more scrutiny.

The small Black Mage stood solemnly at the make-shift cemetery, numb from what he had been told. Though his initial ideas expressed happiness, a sense of belonging and contentment of knowing there were others like him, Vivi now felt hopelessness. Finding out that his life-span was limited, and unpredictable, seemed to transform living into a meaningless task and, to Vivis horror, made him jealous towards Zidane, Garnet and Quina. They had the chance to live for many more years, while Vivi would die; he had little time to see the whole of Gaia, while they would grow old together and have many more memories. Shaking his head so that his large hat waggled slightly, Vivi suppressed this jealousy; no, he would be happy for them - for all of the people in Gaia who had the gift of an extended life.
