~ "Am I…still dreaming?" ~
The Lifestream was eerily quiet at this time of the day. Actually, there was always only silence that surrounded him and that was the most unnerving part. By now, Zack Fair was used to all the green swirling slowly around him, even if it was like a dagger piercing his heart. After all, it was the same shade of green as her brilliant eyes.
Aerith... Oh, how he longed to see her angelic face one more time. Did she even know that he had sacrificed himself in such a way? Perhaps the brunette thought that he had died years ago, since he'd never responded to any of her letters. Or maybe she was still waiting for him, thinking that he would come back to her one day. He didn't know which of the two was worse. Poor woman. She was the biggest sacrifice he'd made and she had no idea.
The raven-haired ex-SOLDIER let out a deep sigh. He was lying in

Zack tried to resist facepalming...and failed miserably. How could he not react like that when Cloud was the most stupid and slow person that he'd ever had the pleasure to know? He obviously had no idea what he was doing. By the looks of it, Zack should speak of a miracle if the blond let Tifa know how much he loved her by the end of this decade. He felt so bad for the poor woman. Seriously, the patience that she had with that man. It was admirable to say the least. If Zack had been in her place, he would've kicked the chocobo somewhere where it would hurt.
"I just can't believe this! You know what, I'm gonna go pay him a nice visit and tell him exactly what's bothering me."
Aerith quickly grabbed his arm, so he wouldn't go anywhere. "Relax, Zack. Cloud knows what he's doing," she assured him. "He's been planning this for quite some time now. I mean, proposing to her on Valentine's Day... That has to be the most romantic thing
First and LastThe air that blew through the Sector Seven slums was thick with smog, hot and filled with the stench of rotting garbage. The weather reports had said that it was about to rain up on the Plate right now, but that didn't matter; none of the rainwater ever reached the slums except what drained down from the sewer lines above, and by then it was too filthy to do anyone any good.First and Last2 years ago in Romance More Like This
As the clouds continued to gather above the steel surface of the Plate on which Midgar sat, a young girl in a long pink dress slowly made her way down the overcrowded streets, twisting a curl of reddish-brown hair around her finger as she went. She was careful to keep out of the artificial light as much as she could while she strode down the empty alleyways on the way to the outskirts of town; she wasn't technically supposed to be here right now, so it was best that as few people as possible spotted her. When she finally reached the ancient church that sat on its own near the edge of Sector Seven, Aerith breathed a
Thirty-One Flavors"I can't believe you've never been to an ice-cream shop before, Aerith!" Zack said incredulously, his big blue eyes even bigger than usual as he looked over at her. She smiled and shrugged, staring at the front of the colorfully-painted shop in wonder.Thirty-One Flavors2 years ago in Romance More Like This
"There isn't one in the part of the slums I live in," she said quietly. "And it's too dangerous to travel between sectors alone." Zack frowned slightly, crossing his arms and cocking his head to one side.
"So why didn't you just ask your big tough SOLDIER boyfriend to escort you from one sector to another?" Aerith looked down at her feet, blushing slightly.
"I… didn't want to impose…" Zack chuckled and shook his head, taking her arm and leading her toward the door of the shop.
"Well from now on, impose whenever you want, okay? I like it when you ask me to do things. Makes me feel useful." Aerith smiled, but it quickly faded to a slack-jawed stare when she saw all the different flavors lined up side by side in the case near

Series: Star Ocean 3 (TTEOT)
Pairing: Albel x Fayt
Genre: Romance/ Humour
The location was Kirlsa. They were on the run from the Dragon Brigade, supposedly one of the three military powers in the southern country of Airyglyph. Everything that had happened since he left the resort planet, Hyda IV, seemed like a bad dream to Fayt, one he couldn't wake up from. Only the sting of battle kept him grounded, but he'd burned himself out. Because of his weakness Nel and Cliff had opted to remain in Kirlsa for the night. It was risky, with their pursuers not far behind, but necessary. Until then Fayt was free to roam around the struggling mining town. It was an odd feeling, being in a docile looking place, feeling the tensions of war just outside the gates and worrying about being noticed and captured at any moment. His whole world had been turned upside down in the space of a couple of days, and it was now more violent and dangerous than his battl

Genre: Romance / Sci-fi / Fantasy
"Faize!" Lymle pouted, storming over to him in the snow. They were back on planet Lemuris just outside Woodley Village, searching for materials and visiting Lutie at the same time. "You are a dummy! You got injured again!"
Faize looked down at the Lemurian girl with a sigh as she approached, her feet lost in the snow. He had been a little careless, but he wasn't that injured at all. No more so than anyone else, and Lymle wasn't reprimanding any of them. He didn't feel like being drawn into yet another debate. He watched as the other party members tried to slink away to avoid the next 'battle'. Only Edge remained, waiting by the village gates and trying to remain inconspicuous.
"Lymle..." Faize looked skywards briefly, hoping for some divine assistance- of course none came.
"Faize, I'm only healing you because otherwise it will be a bother. It's not beca

Faize Sheifa Beleth was engrossed in yet another electronic book. He rested his arms on his lap, his palms were facing upwards and clutching onto the top of the square clear device lit up with words. He sat upright on a seat in the common area, just outside the Calnus bridge. The common room was a circular space with a bar and kitchen. These were Eldarian 'add-ons' that could be integrated into the Calnus easily since its upgrade. There was also a seating area and a fabulous view of outer space, making the common room a perfect place to relax.
'Thump, thump, thump'.
Faize was distracted from his study by a rather persistent, irritating sound. He didn't even need to look to see who was responsible. He sighed and lowered his head slightly, hoping that would help him to concentrate.
'Thump, thump, thump'.
He looked up now and to the side irritably.

Albel sat in a private room in the Aquaelie, looking around with an unreadable expression. His mind was finally settling. He had watched the events unfold on the roof of the Kirlsa Training facility with trepidation. The creatures threatening his allies were so strange, like white fish with bodies. Then their leader had gone to shoot the blue haired fool, and he found himself reacting without thinking. There was a blinding pain and a bright light, a brief moment of calm, the fool's face, and blackness. Then he woke up, and everything went to hell.
It had taken some time for the staff to calm him down. He thought his wound had been fatal, so to wake up at all was unexpected. He had no time to celebrate though. He was instantly set upon by foreign aliens, bombarded by sights, sounds and smells that were unknown to him. To wake up in such an unfamiliar environment made his diso

"Faize." Lymle spoke in her stoic tone.
Faize looked up from his clear electronic note pad. He was sat up over the covers with his pillows behind him. It wasn't like him to use his bed for anything other than sleeping like a rigid vampire, but he was under strict orders from their human Captain to get some rest. Apparently he looked tired and needed to relax. Faize had taken this as an opportunity to read up on the culture of planet Earth.
Then there was Lymle. She had followed him quietly to their room, grumbling something about him always going where she planned to go. As usual he did his best to ignore her. They both knew very well that she was following him- she just didn't want him to think she was following him. She usually spent her time in their room doodling on bits of paper while crouching down. Then she whispered some secret words that he wasn't allo

Arumat felt like an intruder when he had joined the Calnus crew. Their tight-nit group had been through so much, only to be ambled with him at the last moment. He didn't need their approval, but that was just as well because he didn't think he was going to get it. He could feel their resentment every time he entered the room. They resented him for replacing their good friend. He didn't blame them. Every time he walked in on them, he felt a twinge of guilt too. Not for their situation, but his own. The faces he looked at should have been those of his own squadron. But they were gone. In their place were these strangers. So he understood their behaviour around him, after having lost their comrade.
Edge Maverick was the worst affected, he had been Faize's closest friend. He tried to treat

Warning: I recommend you read this after finishing the game. There is a minor spoiler about Arumat in this.
He hated sleeping, but the fact that he faced his mortality on a daily basis only proved he was mortal. As much as he would have liked otherwise, mortals needed their sleep. But he didn't like to let the universe completely have its own way. He knew just how much sleep he needed per day to get by, and he would take as little as he could. Then he would spend every waking hour after that training. That was his life now. He could die, but he wasn't going to die weak.
He took to napping in his room mostly, occasionally chatting with his new Captain when their schedules overlapped. To avoid disrupting the dynamic of the group, Arumat had bunked in Faize's old room, which he shared with Captain Edge Maverik. It didn't help to diffuse the feeling that he was

Driving off into the sunset and never looking back, knowing that the smile on their faces was because of that one other person that meant everything to them.

I sneezed for what felt like the hundredth time today, my throat already itchy from the germs that infected me to fall into this miserable illness. I was lying in bed, the cushions failing to provide the comfort I needed to rest. God, I felt like a headache was coming on from the burning fever that was residing underneath my skin. Sweat poured from my forehead, letting out a harsh cough that shook the very air from my lungs. Opening my eyes, I heard Namine come inside the room with a bowl of soup, the twins innocently following behind her.
She tried to pass a comforting smile, "How's my big man doing?"
I sniffed irritably, my nose too stuffed to breath properly, "Tired." I answered with a broody groan.
She giggled playfully, "I made your favorite, fish soup."

Matthew slowly woke to both the sound of his name and the insistent poking against his cheek. He grumbled and turned over, struggling a little due to extra weight. The poking continued.
"...I'm not using my finger," his waker whispered.
Matthew woke up instantly. "What?!"
Gilbert laughed at the blond's reaction. "You're face! So priceless! I was using my thumb."
"Gilbert! Don't do that!" Matthew said pouting. He reached for his glasses on the side table but instead his hand collided with the wall. "Eh?!"
"They're over here." Gilbert picked up the glasses from the side table on the other side of the bed and slipped them onto his boyfriend's face. "Perfect!"

Italy raised his head slightly, not bothering to look over his shoulder to his grandpa as he just continued to stare out to the vast empty ocean. He grunted very slightly in possible agreement as he still looked onward.
What were Germany and Japan up to? Were they still on the island? Did they get off somehow? Maybe they found that Chinatown back in the island. Surely they must have… right?
Italy’s ears perked and he finally looked over his shoulder, seeing the two of the beautiful women from before, whose named he learned was Venus and Lucia, sitting on their knees in the soft sand not too far away from him. They gently curled their fingers in a motion for him to come over to them. He hesitated for a moment before he decided to get up and go over to them, sitting in the middle of the two with his legs stretched out in front of him.
