This was wonderful. That's the only way I can describe it, actually. :)

I was wondering..if I were Tifa in this FF.
Did you write the others like this? I mean... Fantasy Romance?

awww so cuuute! love it!
| J Luc Pitard 10/1/10 . chapter 2
Wonderful! So like them to have such a seemingly simple thing, like the nightly kiss, build up over three whole months until they're both ready to act on it. Tifa was ready to chuck the whole idea of moving him along and he was ready to chuck his whole non-responsive thing. For once, timing was with them. Nicely written and I liked the changed perspectives. Usually that doesn't work as authors often just retread ground, but here you add to each others insights. I see that this was written years ago, but I'm new to this fandom and really enjoy good writing!

awwwwwww *Cries* If only this would happen :') Great job, it was so believable. I wish it was canon :D I laughed at ''He left me to play in the grass?''. I'm adding this to my favourite's x

Awww, how sweet. A ring made out of grass, really thoughtful of Cloud, haha.(:

i really loved this.
fits perfectly with what i thought happened afterwards.
not too sappy, but not too un-sappy.

This was really well done. And the contrast between Cloud and Tifa was very distinct and nice.

I'm out of breath after reviewing the first chapter! But this was just as wonderful! I always get a little weary of reading a second chapter from another character's point of view, but your first chapter had me so enchanted i quickly squashed my old fears and i dove right in; and I wasn't disappointed! You once again took me on a ride alongside the character and it had my heart pounding at the end, and giggling in girlish delight and joy for them!
(btw, Cloud giving Tifa a promise ring; corny, but a corny that is so adorable you can't help but smile and giggle over because it's so incredibly sweet. And I love that you did it! After all, even though Cloud has gone through so much, he WAS raised out in a very small village and it is just so ... so adorable! It was like watching a 14 year old Cloud shyly being all farm boy again and shoving a ring at the girl he liked before running off to wash his hands of cooties even though he was starting to think cooties weren't so bad after all. it was just that wonderful and innocent! You forever have my love for that scene! XD )
How you wrote Tifa, again just proves you have an amazing talent and makes me feel all inadequate and in starry-eyed awe of you. You gave her so much, everything I saw in both the game and the movie was right there in living color in a living and breathing Tifa. and by allowing her to keep that shy, girlishness to her while not ignoring the fact that she so could have kicked his butt if she hadn't stopped herself at the last second, you made her THAT much more real! I loved that femininity to her and also that strength. I could just FEEL Tifa getting ready to get up and fight through the day as though nothing had happened if he really had run off that morning. I could just feel her strength, so weak and wanting to shatter, but willing to hold it together till it was night once again, the children in bed, the chores done and the lights out before she would allow her to break down after crawling in bed and hiding under the covers. I really liked seeing that subconscious preparedness. And then when she did realize he was still there and WATCHING her sleep; feeling her blush and and cover herself up with the sheet was oh so awesome! Her bashfulness was so REAL.
you wrote this chapter just as beautifully as the first! the hesitation, her uncertainty, her determination, her timidness, her defiance... it was all her! nothing was exaggerated and nothing was understated. you made her so alive.
The picture of this story that you painted in my head is so vivid, I feel like i could just walk down the street to the new Seventh Heaven Bar and see them really living out their lives and interacting, seeing their little spats and their fluffy, adoring looks as they talk or clean dishes... really, amazing writing. this is definitely the icing atop the cake. The first chapter was the cake because it was so filling and perfect on its own, but this just sweetens the deal and finishes it off and makes it satisfactory and filling with a smile and cheery on top. Perfectly delicious! :) you're amazing.

I'm speechless; that was absolutely perfect and wonderful in so many ways.
Your story covered everything and yet still left so much open. I always felt that at the end of Advent Children, that last smile him and Aerith shared was her telling him it was time for him to be content and him agreeing - like... he knew his friends where there and now it was time for him to be there for them; and it was also time for him to forgive himself and accept the fact that Aerith was dead, that her death wasn't his fault, and it was time for him to allow himself some happiness. I've always been a CloudTifa fan myself; and this story captures that magic between them so well! it isn't forced, it isn't awkward, it isn't him just settling... and its also him acknowledging that yes, he did have feelings for another and he lost her, but that doesn't mean he should cut himself off or ignore what is growing within him and around him now that he has healed.
Oh, my heart is all a flutter! The growing emotions and the tension in the story; i was right there in the moment with Cloud, so scared and yet desperate to know what was going to happen. Was he really going to tell her? was he going to back down? Was he going to dive in and consequences be dammed? I was so completely swept up in the story and the setting (I felt like i was walking the hallways with Cloud it was that strong). You did an amazing job. I'm still in awe. This is exactly how I envisioned Cloud to feel at some point after the end of A.C.. You captured everything about him and that is what amazes me. You laced a little of the old-school PS1 FFVII game Cloud into the Advent Children Cloud (and even Crisis Core can be seen) into how he has 'grown' over the years. You've shown perfectly how the fight has changed him as well as the emotional side of him that he keeps cloaked so well, and then also his personal growth. It just feels like the character down to the way he enjoyed the feel of the breeze against his skin to how he finally identified one of those emotions that he was scared to admit too (that was what really swept me away in this story, was him admitting that it wasn't just one reason or emotion he was feeling, it was a mixture and it sold me. It made me believe this was exactly the unseen ending to the movie).
It was gorgeous. Absolutely breathtaking. This is something i'll constantly be re-reading because it it does what a story should do - it takes you to another place and makes you feel things with such intensity it can't be ignored. I'm in awe of your talent and the brilliance of this piece of writing. Bravo. I am forever a fan of this story and I don't think anything will ever compare to it.

Just out of curiosity, (is) are Cloud and Tifa virgins? It just seems that in part II when it states "his familiar body under my hands", there's a preconceived notion that they both had been in this situation before.

Your story's are wonderfully written. The way you describe each feeling and the positions you seem to put your characters in make me want to jump with joy. Not many people can write such a exquisite story. Kudos! I hope to see more storys soon!
