What I want to know is why the fuck that baby has green eyes.

I'm starting to hate Cloud in no time now. Y u do dis man?! Y?!
God. Poor Tifa. It hurts.

Wow, this is absolutely beautiful.
I'm a big Cloud/Tifa fan, and I think some angst is just what I needed today. *sniff*
(These aren't tears, I just have dust in my eye!)
If this can make me cry, it must be good! Fantastic job!

I don't know what to say. I can't verbalize what emotions this fic evoked upon me while reading... GAH CLOUD YOU JERK WHY!
Ok seriously, I love this fic. The length and style of writing if perfect. Its subtlety is just right for the readers to get the message and at the same time it leaves room for the readers' imagination. More than that, there's no way a reader won't feel the angst of the story. It's almost tangible! Great job!

I bow to your humbling awesomeness.
I'm a new judge at GA, and was looking through the archives of past winners. Surprise surprise, yours was there.
I can't say I didn't feel like crying some time in the story. The CloTi relationship is complicated, there are many ways it can go. I myself think that a happy romance won't come easily to them. Your story captured the essence of Cloud's longing for Aerith, Tifa's rugged love for Cloud, and the fact that they'll never be on the same wavelength.
Beautifully written and worthy of its win.

Cloud needs to suffer. UGH.
It is a very haunting short fic nonetheless. Well written and just plain gnaw at you emotionally.
I actually kind of like Aerith in a way that she's this untouchable and unreachable character (being the last of the Ancient and a complete 'Angel'). But I like Tifa character more because she's more human and easier to relate to.
I can totally relate to Tifa's feeling if that's what's happening, and I just don't like Cloud period, and your fic just gives me more reason to not like him LMAO.

I SO imagined that could happen. Stupid cloud. Because of that flower girl I hate pink.
| regenerate chapter 1 . 11/17/2007
So sad..Poor Tifa, no matter what you do, Aerith is always right there in his heart. I'd move on if I were her, and pick someone who will love her completely! Cloud's a mess. You wrote amazingly. I for one am jealous. The way you always added an undertone of Cloud's longing at every break in the story was amazing.

Wow. Lots of powerful words. Beautiful. Excellent emotion.
| TrishLove chapter 1 . 2/10/2007
I love it. It seems cliche but that's it. I'm actually a cloti fan but I think Aeris is okay. Well... Maybe a bit okay. Heh. Take care!
