:3 This will always be hailed as my favorite story. Like ever. Even after all these years of reading and faving and following, this was THAT STORY I had at the back of my mind. I remember reading it the first time and going... 'holy heck, this is epic and beautiful - I want to aspire to this type of writing'. It's hard seeing a story rich with original concepts and an original character, taking the FF7 lore into a whole different level. It's been I think 4 years since I read this? And still, the concept of it still haunts to this day. It's freaky and gorgeous at the same time. The fact my favorite pairing is featured here is just icing on the cake. But as I recall, this was one of the very first stories to highlighted the potential of them. It still makes a big impact on me, even when I wasn't into the yaoi concept just yet. I still found their portrayal to be sensual and stunning. This was THAT STORY that opened my eyes. So you can imagine that how I tried to track it down because stupid me forgot to fave it. I had to ask the forums for help since I kept missing it during my search. Now, I'm glad this beautiful gem sits in a proper place in my faves list. And now, outta the blue, I come today to realize I hadn't left a comment on it. I'm rectifying that now.
Thank you, special writer, for making this story. Thank you for leaving your mark and inspiring writers like me to go forth and explore this wonderful world with a fresh and exciting concept. :)

Damn. Confusing, but a hell of a story. Very nice.
Vincent - Red - Tencin / Tifa - Purple - Afi / Yuffie - Olive - Fiyue / Aeris - Pink - Sira / Cid - Yellow - Di / Cait - White - Tai / Barret - Brown - Terra / Nanaki - Rust - Ikana (the narrator) /
Sephiroth - Green / Cloud - Blue

Okay - I have to adore this. Its very fascinating - how its worded in an apocalyptic sense; how no one knows anyone's name but address them as colors or titles. I can only guess who a few are - and then they're implied to be the bad guys...
I think Red / Gunner is Vincent - Yellow / Pilot is Cid - Pink is Aerith - Yuffie is the Ninja - and Blue is Cloud? R is Reno since he implied Rude in some of his 'letters'.
So as confusing as HELL as the Wings are - the mere words between Sephiroth and Cloud - so few with so little action tells a story of how much they love one another and its really fascinating XD I can't guess who the rest of the colors are but I feel like it'd take away from the story XD
It was nice to see that Sephiroth won - it really is and how he has Cloud forever. God I love eternal love stories XDD Ah - I'll stop gushing now! :3 Great job - this is amazing and well done, the ending is vague but I think its vague in a great way.

Wow...Seph won? HE DID? AWESOMED I love stories where he wins(I hate Cloud, Btw). You expressed this so nice. It was truly a prefect masterpiece. I loved it so much I didn't even observe the spelling mistakes, if there were any. Cloud's the key to victory and Seph masters him. I don't fave just any story. I followed thousands of stories and yet only barely a few made it to my favourites. Now their number raised by one. Congrats for making into my top -cheers-. And if you know stories where Seph wins, please share your knowledge with me via pm. Anyway I liked this so much! My fav one shot definitively.

This fic gave me goosebumps. It certainly does an interesting spin on the topic of eternal love between our favorite heros. Too bad humanity kind of extinguishes because of it...or not, since we are like rats. Thanks for writing this eerily realistic fic. I enjoyed it.

Actually, I don't care if I'm the 50th or not... but since you thanked me for simply favoriting this story, I've always wanted to ask you something: Can you please please please tell me who is who? About the Wings, I mean. I'm hopelessly confused... -.-a
P.S Great story, by the way ;D

This story is awesome. I really enjoyed reading it. I wish you would do a sequel or a prequel. I would really like to know how Avalanch was betrayed and what happened to the survivor.
I really like how you only say Seph's and Cloud's names. It was fun to figure out what colors went with each party member.
I really hope you continue writing.

... I have absolutely no idea what I should say to this.
This is incredible.
I think, personally, though, that the ending part should be slightly less vague... I mean, it's really good, but the ending is confusing in a... not so good way.
Please continue writing~! o

Rofl, as I was reading the last part when Cloud appears, the song "Black Water" from FFVIIAC popped up. Quite fitting imo, lol. Anyway, this fic had a dark charm to it that made it REALLY intriguing. Thanks for writing this!

love this story. the way they try and become another Cloud only to find out Cloud belongs -happly- to Sephy. Love to see this in other people's view Clouds, Sephy's, Aerith -she was the wing that changed right...?- i would really like to know how Cloud came to Sephy's side and what happen to Jenova. Apart from the stuff i'm dying to know, i do love this story it's the way you think Cloud failed, then betrayed then finding out he works with/for sephy then the fact the planet obeys sephy's will because he has Cloud. it gives the perfect balace between mystery and supense if only the love was more explored but only in another story this is perfect as it. it's they way seph holds Cloud and they way the rest of AVALANCE will let Sephy get injured but acttack when Cloud is injured that perfectly end this peice.

I've read this story so many times, I shiver every time I read it cos its that good. I'd love to see a prequel or perhaps something from Cloud's point of view, i imagine it would be beatifully written. I hope that you do some more Cloud/Sephiroth stories, there aren't that many that I like out there, I have to say the ones you have written are some of the best that I have ever read :-)
