Unaware / She Forgets Sometimes
"The sky's beautiful today too. "
And I'll say it again if I have to because it really was. Maybe if it had been a different time, a different place, I would be skipping on the sidewalk. But it's not and I'm nowhere near childishly walking. This wasn't just Midgar, this was Edge. Not everything was as stunning as the sky was. The city's not really the inspiring blue like hope or the blue that makes you feel free and cool rather, it's the kind of blue that just makes everyone feel terrible. That's what it is, or at least, was. I could never bring myself to skip out here but I couldn't help but add a spring to my steps.
This place has seen better days and I'm telling you, these are those days. Before the attack of the Remnants, before the fall of Meteor, before everything had happened, these streets had never seen daylight. Now it's breathing in it. Yes, things may look grim but not totally hopeless. If you ask me, I'd say it doesn't just
A Kiss under the MistletoeAfter the dinner, everyone returned to their respective homes while Tifa puts the kids to sleep. They were still excited about Christmas and they couldn’t wait until morning to open their presents. Tifa stayed with them for a while until they finally succumbed to sleep. She took the opportunity to go wake Cloud (who was still asleep in his room) and put the Christmas presents under the tree.A Kiss under the Mistletoe2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“Cloud, wake up.” She shook him slightly and caressed his face.
Cloud stirred under her gentle touch and grunted as protest.
“Wha...What is it?” He said drowsily.
“The children are asleep.” She whispered softly.
He yawned. “Ah... Good.” He laid his head back on his pillow.
“Come on, you silly!” She shook him again. “We have to hurry before they wake up again.”
“Alright, alright... I’m up.” He stood up drowsily and rubbed his eyes before stretching his body.

He Ogles When No One's Watching~ Cloud didn't bother to hide his smirk as he was pulled back into their shared bedroom. This was, without a doubt, the best birthday ever. ~He Ogles When No One's Watching2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Rule 1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.
Tifa's hair was still slightly damp by the time she finally retreated to the bedroom that she shared with Cloud, but that didn't matter; by the time Cloud came home, it would be dry and straight again anyway (not to mention silky soft, just the way Cloud liked it. And she loved the way he would run his fingers through her hair). The raven-haired beauty glanced at the alarm clock on the nightstand, seeing that she still had an hour or so left. Perfect. Maybe she could paint her nails deep red or something. Anything that could improve her looks even more.
Admittedly, she never did anything like that, because the paint would chip off within a few hours, what with all the chores she had to do all day. However, since today was Cloud's birthday,

Meanwhile, Denzel and Marlene had gone shopping with Tifa to get some groceries for tonight's dinner. Both were very excited since this would be the first time they would spend Christmas with Cloud and the others. While Tifa was picking the food, Denzel and Marlene were having a discussion about Santa Claus.
"Of course he is real!" Marlene claimed.
"No, he is not!" Denzel replied.
"Yes, he is!"
"No, he's not!"
"Yes, he is!" Marlene shouted.
"Hey, what's with the yelling?" Tifa came in and tries to calm them down.
"Denzel keeps saying that Santa Claus doesn't exist." Marlene frowned.
"Is that so..." Tifa tilted her head to see his face. "And why is that?" she asked nicely.
"Because he is not real." He shrugged. "Is just a lame excuse that all grown ups say to make us believe in magic and stuff.

Written for Chaosbayne
You walked out of the local grocery store and proceeded with relaxed steps along the sidewalk of the quiet neighborhood. You held the bag of fruits in your hand and headed toward the center of the village where an old square was located. That piazza, which stood in the midst of the town, held the eternal tales and unforgettable memories of all the people of Banora, your lovely hometown.
Upon reaching the public square, you noticed two foreign men whom you had never seen in your hometown before, standing near the stone wall of the old public square. They were wearing what appeared to be uniforms, holding guns and weapons all over their persons, which frightened you a little. As you walked closer to where they were standing, you became able to recognize the familiar logo that was imprinted on each of the leather belts that were fixed around their waists. ‘

Rule 1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss topics such as football or motor sports.
It was another delightfully lazy Sunday. Since all chores were finished, Cloud, Tifa, Denzel and Marlene had more than enough time to spend some time together. They'd all agreed that the best way to do that was by playing their most favorite game in the world: 'I Have Never.'
At the moment, it seemed that Marlene was winning, because she still had four fingers up. Denzel and Tifa had three and Cloud had two, meaning that he was in the danger zone. The one who had the most fingers left after everyone else had none, was the winner and he or she was allowed to give the loser a mandatory task. Marlene was known for giving the most surprising comma

Is it possible to be with someone for so long without knowing you're in love?
I know this might sound like another cheap fairy tale but to tell you the truth, I don't believe in such things; but I do believe in second chances.
I think it's stupid to believe that people fall in love at first sight for no reason. Even if the person is good enough for you, there's no proof that she or he will be the right one, until you know each other. Unfortunately, that's not my case...
I've known my best friend ever since I was a child. We grew up together in the same place until fate took us apart and changed the course of our lives. We fought alongside against the evil that plagued humanity and its remnants. We became real close during these events and now we're living together under the same roof with two kids.
No, we're not a couple and yes, we do like each other but not in that way you think. Even after all we've been through, there's still not a single hint that me and her are right for each oth

As usual, he was greeted with hugs and smiles from the children. He wasn't exactly a huggable person but he didn't mind either.
While he put some boxes under the counter he sees Tifa in the kitchen. Since today was a holiday, she had to closed the bar early in order to cook the meal for tonight's dinner. It smelled so good in there that as soonest he smell the food, Cloud's stomach started to growl. He quickly reached for the fridge and ate some snacks to ease the hunger; and then he took off for another deliver.
Minutes later, Yuffie arrived to the bar and brought a bunch of Christmas stuff. She took out the ornaments and hand it to the children, so they can start decorating the place. Denzel and Marlene were having a great time putting up with the decorations and they've totally forgot about the Santa Claus issue.
After finishing with the decorations, Cloud came back with more boxes. It has been a very busy day for the Strife Delivery Servic

Summary: Cloud is having trouble sleeping because of the huge thunderstorm that was falling outside and goes into Tifa's room to seek shelter. She sings to him a lullaby to reassure him and ease his anxiety.
Disclaimer: I don't own Final Fantasy VII and its characters. The song that I used as reference is sung by Vienna Teng.
It was a busy day in the Seventh Heaven bar and Tifa was about to read one of her favorite novels in her bedroom before going to sleep. She had just dispatched all the customers because of the huge storm that was coming and had no choice but to close the bar early. Cloud on the other hand, had to cancel his last minute deliveries and stayed home to do some paperwork.

You looked at the auburn-haired man sitting comfortably on the armchair. His eyes fixed on the all too familiar white covered book.
It was a routine, you watched Genesis on the same spot. You're sure he has noticed, but you think he doesn't mind. Every day, you would watch him from across the room after school ended. Both of you had been hanging out in the West Lounge after school hours since you met. It would be the same thing over and over again, he would just sit there and read Loveless, while you sat there, sometimes listening to him quoting the book. It got frustrating after a few weeks.
You weren't sure why, but you kept coming back, hoping something would happen. Hoping that he WOULD notice you, the things you do and your feelings for him. But looking at the man in front of you, your hope was fading quickly. He was more interested in a book he had already read a few thousand times compared to a human being who had an obvious attraction toward him.

Rule 1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really.
"I'm sorry it's taking me so long, Cloud," Tifa said apologetically from a spot where he couldn't see her.
A soft gasp was heard when she, by the sound of it, bumped some part of her against the wall.
"It's okay. Take your time, no need to rush," Cloud said, sitting on their shared bed and leaning back slightly.
To any other person, that might have sounded extremely sarcastic, but he knew that Tifa knew him long enough to realize that he was being serious. Thank goodness for that, because he was nowhere without the beautiful bartender by his side.
They were supposed to go to a costumed Halloween party, but of course, getting ready took a bit longer for Tifa. Different clothing items were lying everywhere in the room; from the floor to the bed.
Cloud was pretty much dressed as...himself (which Yuffie would

An anger so intense, it was going to be directed at the very object of her vengeance in this very moment, someone whom had tried to destroy everything she knew, and was enjoying every second of it.
An energy field, in the color of pure, white light encircled her, as she stood in a power stance, and started screaming at the top of her lungs; her body started to hover just a few inches off the ground. The man whom was enjoying her demise was suddenly perturbed by this new power coming from Tifa, and was paralyzed with fear.
Then suddenly, Tifa was engulfed in the light, and she flew into the air, circled around and went straight at the man, her right fist going straight for the greatest vital organ in the human body, and in a flash, Tifa's powerful fist went right through that organ, out the other side, and the light faded, Tifa hovered back to the gr

Hues of different colors shimmered through the air as the sun slowly crept below the horizon, rather hesitant on completely disappearing. Below the endless sky, the ruins of a village were lit up with a fading reddish-orange tint, so eerily similar to the flames that had once consumed it. Nature had slowly started to take over it as the flames ceased to exist, vines wrapping around charred remnants of the houses. Even the trees had recovered, arching higher and producing more apples than ever, standing strong, yet sad. In the silence, there was nothing, no monsters dared to go near the once inhabited town. Something broke through the void of silence, a soft sound as if a bird's wing was striking the air, the slight rustle of feathers as air blew through them. Though nothing was seen at first, the destroyed village almost holding its breath, a black dot was seen streaking out of the large cloud formation overh

On you wander,
However you're not,
who I once knew
Why can't you turn, to me and smile,
like you used to?
(In those times)
Remember those days,
when we were children?
So long ago..
That sadness in your eyes only grows.
I remember you back then.
All I can do is lock away,
all of my bitter tears.
What could have happened,
what could have changed you, in all those years?
(On that day...)
Stand next to me,
Please don't leave my side, please hear my cry...
"Don't dilly-dally," these words I give you.
And for you I'll be the one who stays besides you.
These feelings, will never change...
That time you promised,
That time you came.
How could I think everything, would be the same?
Under the stars, we made a pledge.
I yearn for those days, however,
those memories I hold dear,
Conflicted with things unclear
Because you're the one I hope remembers...
All of these feelings you can't grasp with your hands.
I want you to notice,
You're no longer standing alone anymore
On your own... on
