"You have six new messages." The cheery and all-too-familiar voice on Cloud's phone said. He'd had his phone off for the past few hours, after calling home that morning. "Message one."
"The kids really miss you," Tifa's voice said, cutting straight to the chase as she always did when she called lately. "Cloud, you said you wouldn't do this again. At least when we were losing out to Aerith's memory I understood. Call me back."
"End of message one. Message two."
"Tourism is down eighteen percent in Wutai! Finally!" Yuffie's voice was shrill and delighted over the phone, full of enthusiasm and energy. "Hope you haven't been eaten by the larvae yet. Come and visit some time! I promise not to count you in the tourist data, okay?"
"End of message two. Message three."
"Spiky!" Barrett sounded angry. He often did, but this was not the enjoyable kind of annoyance he tended to carry. "You better be getting home to visit my girl soon! I'll come for you if you make her cry!"

Rule 1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
Cloud was sure of only one thing, and that one thing mattered the most right now: he was in heaven. He just had to be, because Tifa knew exactly what to do to make him feel good. She was a massage goddess. All those years of her strength training hadn't changed anything about her gentleness, thank gods. She knew when and where to apply more pressure and where to be extra careful to alleviate the stress. It was as though she could read his mind. Quite honestly, Cloud couldn't possibly think of a better way to spend his first moment of summer vacation...or the rest of it, really. He was far too tired to do something else today. Fortunately for him, Tifa understood completely. Mor

So, I've been recently asked by my good friend Sea-Chan ( Link in the description. Go look her up you derps. She's awesome.) to part with the secrets to my writing. Since I've been asked this by a few people, I'll put it here (it's also just long in general, so this helps.) for any aspiring author that's plagued by the dreaded writer's block!
1) Q: How long do you write in a day, and when do you do it?
Generally, I try to give myself a few hours a day. During weekdays when I have school, I dedicate two or three hours to writing when I get home. Weekends, I write whenever I feel like it.
During school, though, I keep a pencil and notebook handy just in case I get an idea I don't trust my memory, see. The moment I get an idea, I drop whatever I'm going and write it down. Whether it be in point form or details doesn't matter get the point across!
During holidays, that time fluctuates. I sometimes go days without writing and then write for eight hours straight (that us

The sky was very cloudy that day, and while the rain kept pouring down onto him, he barely felt it. Zack Fair had made his final stand against ShinRa, and he was now dying from the many gunshot wounds the soldiers had given him. His best friend Cloud sat beside him, Buster Sword in hand.
"I'm your living legacy" Cloud repeated softly.
Zack tried his best to smile faintly, and was about to close his eyes for the final time and begin his peaceful rest, but the sound of a nearby helicopter made him try his best to keep them open. They were coming back, and he could only think of one reason why: Cloud.
"Run" he said between labored breaths.
Cloud took one glance where the noise was coming from, then turned back to his friend. Hesitation was written all over his face.
"Go!" Zack commanded, trying to shout, but barely making it a loud whisper.
Don't let me die for nothing.
Cloud nodded firmly as he stood up, and to Zack's relief hurried away the best that he could in his body's we

The Heir of Jenova and the Champion of Minerva stared at each other, oblivious to the once-again chaotic lab surrounding them.
"Katlyn," Sephiroth murmured, "so this is what you meant when you mentioned that we'd be seeing each other soon."
Smirking, Katlyn responded just as quietly, "Actually, Sephiroth, this wasn't quite what I had planned " Before she had a chance to elaborate, however, at that moment the two other First Classes rushed into the room. They both stopped dead at the sight of her and Sephiroth locking blades.

Taking heed to the panicked mantra continually played in her head, Katlyn schooled her face to show only curiosity rather than the dread she felt at the Turks potentially already finding her out as she asked, "Yes?"
As the future leader of the Turks adjusted the cuffs of his sleeves, Tseng responded, "May I have a moment of your time? I just want to ask a few questions."
THAT doesn't sound good. "Sure, I guess. What did you want to know?" Katlyn replied, shrugging her shoulders. She once again sent a word of thanks to Minerva's assistants for forcing her to go through all those acting lessons, including the ones on how to lie. Otherwise, she knew she would've been totally screwed, and not in a good way.

Well, she could thankfully answer this one honestly "Not really. I mean, I've heard a glimpse of it on my

Tifa could hear Zack talking on the phone to someone so she stayed in the tent, she sat with her legs crossed bored with nothing to do, 'I can't go out looking like this' she thought looking around at clouds things. After a while she stood up and began peeking through some of Clouds bags, he didn't have much belongings in his possessions he was very basic and old school. From looking for clothes her mind became preoccupied hoping to find a diary of some sort or any information on Cloud but she found nothing.
"What are you looking for?" Cloud's deep voice called out from the entrance of the tent. Tifa shrieked in surprise and dived into the tent bed, hiding her face under the blanket.
"I'm sorry to be so rude I was looking for some clothes to wear" She mumbled under the covers ashamed of her actions.
Cloud just watched bewildered and smiled a bit then walked over

Lightning could see the sun setting in the distance, its faint light still causing Cocoon to sparkle, a sight she couldn't see from her home. Although the base of the pillar was now many hundreds of miles away, she felt that if she could keep that in her eye line, Vanille and Fang would be helping her on her journey. By now she'd developed quite a rhythm from her walking game, although it was now becoming repetitive and dull, besides she now had the more pressing issue of where to sleep, all she had was fire making equipment, no tent. "I should have thought this through a little more..." she muttered to herself. She knew that several miles ahead, there was a network of caves she could hide out in, but it would take an hour or so to reach, by then it would be dark. "Stupid Snow."

He was driven by an overwhelming sense of fear. Despair. Echoes of the agony he'd felt just hours before.
His feet pounded against the hard ground, crashing through crackling grass made heavy and wet by the rain pouring from the sky. The clouds were dark and menacing above him, and white mist swirled around his feet.
He hoped he was imagining the sound of pursuers, the white noise of the rain muffling his ears. The blood roaring in them didn't help his hearing either.
Rain caked his long, dark hair to his face in thick strands. Droplets clung to his skin and hoodie, speckling the scorpion tattoo on his neck. The one he'd saved up all his money to get, only to be hurt afterwards, hurt by the very same person who'd inked it onto his skin.
His hands wiped the water from his eyes, half tears, half rain. It didn't do much.
He saw something familiar in the distance, a hulking mass of rusted trains, all retired from the railroad long ago. And, nestled in between two of the largest cars, a spa

Lightning ran around her house, packing up nearly everything she owned, from the remaining food in her cupboards to the now defunct crystal of Odin. "Go..." the voice of Serah resounding in her mind. "If I go, we'll not see each other again."
"I know..." Lightning shook her head, banishing the words. Her packing continued, although she was only taking the bare essentials, that was nearly everything she owned. "Lightning!" someone shouted from outside, there was no knock, the door suddenly burst open and there, a silhouette against the outside stood Snow. In that moment she was overcome with every emotion, hate for causing this, her love for him still burning strong, her sadness at never seeing him again, her happiness for him coming and again her anger for him showing up. "What are you doing here!" she shouted. "Is it true!?" he spluttered.

Like the tree rings we counted as children.
Your bones are beautiful, she murmurs to the pale jigsaw.
They hold no regret.
They hold no memories
Except of falling off roofs
And the places we should not have been.
There is a softness that underlies cold rigidity:
A boy who spoke without smiling,
A God who remained unseen.
Quiet skeletons lie down serenely while the rest of us washes away,
Awaiting some change in the weather.

Cresting like an ocean wave,
The sternum shielded your soul.

As it yearned towards the vertebrae of your spine.

You never let her see your grace.
Shes left with just the framework.
