Okay, yeah, I see the creepy...
But still, I love the parallels in paragraphs 1-4. It adds a certain... je ne sais quoi... It makes it a mantra of reverence in my mind, I guess?
The fifth paragraph, however, held my favorite lines. It brought together why each aspect was mentioned before (his hair, his skin, his hand, his eyes) and brings it together in a sad fullness.
My favorite lines: "Vincent's tears stream down and glisten in the dim moonlight that filters through the window, and Cid stands in shock. For all he'd borne, Vincent was still so, so fragile, and Cid wishes he could have helped to take that fear away."
It's creepy that he's still taking care of him even after he's dead, but then again, Vincent's been dead before... Maybe Cid just doesn't want him to be alone... Maybe Cid doesn't know how to cope with it...
So yeah, it's creepy... but I can see the reverence, the tenderness, and Cid's own lack of ability to cope without him...
Ever at your pleasure,
PS: Telling us "it's old and crap and [to] stop faving it"... It makes my rebellious inner child want to look all the more...
PSS: I love that you used the word "sanguine". It's one of my favorite words in the English language.

That was very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very dark.
You've just brought the Valenwind(Cid/Vincent) pairing to a whole new level!
It's nice to take a break from comedic fluff and read a 'creeped-the-hell-out-of-me' fic once in a while.
The ending was captivating. I never expexted it, and it gave me the shivers.
People need to start writing darker Cid/Vincent.
We don't have enough!

Wow... ehm... Reminded me of this crazy aunt I had...
I give to you a shrunken head for the superb creepiness.

I DO fear you. :) This was totally disturbing but . . . very well written and oddly fun to read. *shrug* And I usually don't like death fics . . .

Ooh, Cid's like Emily Rose or whatever the creepy lady's name one who kept the dead body of the dude she loved in her bed for decades.
I like this.

Dude, my friend Fallen whats-her-face, gave me this.
Its fucking creepy. AND YOU KILLED VINCENT!
I can never forgive you.
But if you look past the creepy stuff and CidxVincent things...its good. xD

That... is the creepiest mother fucking thing I've ever read. And I'm not entirely referring to the dead part. I could NEVER EVER imagine Cid and Vincent being together. But I thought 'what the hell' let's try it. I'm dying of boredom. I'm sure Cid has been brushing his hair. As well as a few other things, that's how creep you've made Cid... I really don't even know what to think of this...

-gaping- Oh...my...I feel as if that was the darkest thing I have ever read. It was...sad...and really creepy at the same time. My god, I LOVED IT. Even though I'm emo-ing right now. XD -emos in a corner-
Luck 'A The Irish,

Sad to see that I came across this amazing piece three years too late.
Anyway, I would just like to say that I was completely captivated by your story. So haungtingly descriptive-it was just amazing.
The end completely blew me away as well. Fascinatingly morbid, and all I can say is that I loved it.

This is one powerful piece. Very well done.
